Will History Repeat Itself?
History, both sacred and profane,
tells us that men have had their mo
tives misconstrued, have been reviled,
and even put to death for the offense
of trying to do good to their fellow
men. Jesus Christ was crucified by a
mob because he said he came to save
mankind. His little, narrow enemies
said he wanted to be a boss, he wanted
to set himself up as somebody higher,
and better than they were. Cesar, the
greatest man of his age, was hacked to
pieces by an envious little band of con
spirators who said he was ambitious
and wanted to be boss of the people,
and Socrates, one of the greatest of
Greek philosphers, was condemned to
death because he had the nerve to tell
the people that they were being taught
a false doctrine. In every age, in
every clime there have been men who
can not abide the man whose genius
has raised him above their own level.
When Jesus drove the Archbolds, Lori
mers, Penroses, and the other money
changers out of the temple they were
defiling they headed a movement to
get him out of the way because he was
interferring with their business, the
high priests joined with them because
the money changers said if this man
Jesus is permitted to go on with his
teachings we will all lose our jobs. Let
us tell the people he is a false prophet
and would do them harm, and the fool
people believed them and crucified
Caesar conquered the enemies of
Rome and made her the greatest and
most prosperous nation in the known
world. He fed the poor and adminis
tered the laws justly, but the Guggen
heims, the McKinleys, the Cranes and
the Cannons went among the people
and said this man Caesar wants to so
change our laws that he will become
a king, he is ambitious and a self
seeker, he wants to be a big boss oi us
all. The Guggenheims, McKinleys,
Cranes and Cannons of Caesars time
were afraid of Caesar. His genius
was too big for them. He might get
so solid with the people that they
would all lose their jobs, so they said
let us get away with him. And again
the fool people said you are right, he is
a bad man. He has done all these
good things for us just to make him
self great. You are right in putting
him out of the way.
The Barnes' and the Murphy's, and
the Harriman's of Socrates' time knew
if the changes that he advocated were
brought about their occupation would
be gone. They were standpatters.
Things as they were then suited them
and they opposed any change in reli
gion or government, so they got to
gether and said among themselves this
man Soc. wants to make the people
believe he knows more than all of us
put together. He wants to be boss.
He thinks he's great. Let's get away
with him. And once more the fool
people didn't know the difference be
tween a true and false prophet, and
they fixed up some dope and made
Socrates drink it. Well, to bring a
long story to an end —but what be
came of the Greeks, you say? Their
descendants are drawing our water and
hewing our wood and some of them
are working on the sections. The
descendants of the once proud Ro
mans are what some people call Dagos,
while the descendants of those who
crucified the Saviour of mankind are
mostly in the clothing and pawnbrok
ing business and have no home at all.
There are certain jackals snapping
at the heels of Theodore Roosevelt,
they are standpatters. They want
things to remain as they are. If the
changes that Roosevelt advocates are
adopted some of them are certain to
lose their jobs. Therefore they go
about saying this man Roosevelt wants
to be boss of the whole works. He's
ambitious, too. He's a self seeker.
He wants to be it. He's an all round
bad man and we want the people to
help us do him up.
The following story may help some
people to decide whether to listen
to Barnes and Penrose and ring a
change on history or follow in the
beaten path of the past:
In answering squarely the question,
"Is Roosevelt sincere?" which has
been raised often by his enemies in
this campaign. E. A. Van Valken
berg editor of the Philadelphia North
American, makes a most striking con
tribution to the story of the great cam
It is as convincing a light on the
progressive movement, its leader and
what the two mean to the country, as
can be.
Mr. Van Valkenburg says:
"it was on the morning after Wil
son's nomination that we were privi
leged to be alone with Theodore
Roosevelt and his family and to ac
quire personal, irrefutable proof that
his purposes are patriotic, unselfish,
utterly sincere.
"During a two-hour discussion he
laid before us his masterful analysis of
the situation confronting him. There
was not a trace of nervousness nor a
hint of egotistical assurance in his
manner or his words. With merciless
exactitude he pictured the probable
effect upon his career of the step he
was facing and weighed its results with
the serene courage of a man reconciled
to what seemed a certain fate.
"It is no violation of confidence to
say that there never appeared in any
thing he said a suggestion of personal
victory. There was, on the other hand,
a plain realization of the fact —mdi
Cbc Hcavcnwortb i£cbcu
cated already in the abuse of enemies
and the advice of timorous friends —
that he must endure ostracism, the
loss of cherished associations, the
breaking of friendships, misinterpreta
tions without end, with defeat as the
almost inevitable culmination.
"With this full understanding in his
mind; with a disastrous termination to
his career the only expected outcome,
Theodore Roosevelt made his choice.
"He chose to make his fight. He
chose to brave malignity aad aspersion,
misconstruction, strife and ultimate
failure, so far as his personal fortunes
were concerned.
"He chose this course, because
therein lay his duty; because the prin
ciples he believed in demanded it;
because in this crisis, as in all others,
he was driven by a passion to serve
humanity by promoting social justice.
He decided then and there to sacrifice
his own interests to one task —the car
rying forward of this cause to a point
where never again it could be over
thrown by the forces which had de
stroyed the republican party.
The course of events has proved
that the fight is not hopeless. The
rising of a people aroused to take con
trol of the government for themselves
has put a different look on things.
But the decision made by Theodore
Roosevelt then, and the spirit of the
choice in itself will stand as the test
of the man. He could see nothing be
fore him but abuse and defeat. But
the cause was one from which he could
not draw back.
In impressing on his audience the
enormity of the population of China a
lecturer said in Wenatchee recently
that if two inches was added to every
Chinaman's shirt tail that it would re
quire the entire cotton crop of the
United States.
When the committee was appointed
to investigate the campaign expenses
of Theodore Roosevelt it was not ex
pected that the result would add a
half million votes to the Colonel's ma
jority. _________
The opinion prevails quite generally
among newspaper writers that Gover
nor Wilson has lost votes by making
speeches. He is not the first man to
whom silence would have been golden.
The man who says Roosevelt was
drunk when he made his speech in Se
attle only wants to make some excuse
to his conscience for voting for a less
worthy man.
