PRESIDENTIAL BOOM AND RAIL
Taft Boom Coming Prom the White
House. Roosevelt Dominates
Everywhere. Calls War Between
President and Railroads a "Tem
pest in a Teapot."
[Special Correspondence to the llkrald.] |
Washington, I>. C., April 0. — The i
things on lap at the nation's capital just j
now seem to be the springing of presi-!
dential booms and the president's war I
with the railroad managers.
The Taft boom seems to be the only ]
presidential boom that shows anything
like a growth iu the ranks of the republi
cans, antl it comes as ftraight from the
White House as anything that ever came
from there, Roosevelt simply dominates
Ilis party and bestrides it like a Colossus.
He is IT, and everything he says must
co or something will bust. The party
leaders stand aghast at everything lie
Buys and does. They get tongue paralysis
and wobbly in the legs like a young calf
every time he pops his whip or wields
the big stick. The so-called leaders of
the republican party are the woist set of
political doughfaces I ever saw. They
allow Roosevelt to completely dominate
them aud run over them like they were
a lot of pigmies. He is now setting up
his own candidate to succeed him, and
there is no one to say him nay, apparent
ly. llow have the mighty fallen ! Think
of what would happen to Roosevelt if
there were still men in the senate like
Conkling and Blaine, and Kdmunds and
Thad Stevens and Zach Chandler and
Oliver I s . Morton. Why, they would
bend him over a political barrel and
spank him with u board. They would
convince him at one sitting that there
were enough brains and power and sure
enough men in the senate, and that they
would not submit to his dictation as to
laws or candidates. The first time he
whistled for the grizzly the grizzly would
come. Alas! the giants are gone and
the pigmies of congress are i tiled as with
a rod of iron by the greatest fakir and
fraud in American politics. Every other
newspaper correspondent here would say
the same thing if he dared to do so. He
does not dare. His paper is edited from
the business oflice and it would cost him
liis job. I defy the whole outfit, and the
country press of the country is now the
only place where the people can get the
If the republican party is satisfied to
sit down and allow the president to die*
tate who it shall and must vote for at the
next election, and also wiite its plat
fo'rm, then the democrats can look on
complacently. It is a family row anil is
no concern of ours. If they are so weak
kneed as to allow him to walk on their
necks it will simply add to the gaiety of
nations in the next elections. Let it go
The aii-ciillet! war between the i>resi
dent and the big railroad managers is a
tempest in a teapot. It is all sound and
fury signifying nothing. A lot of these
railroad buccaneers, who got all thev
wanted out of this administration last
year when the railroad rate bill was
passed, just as I said thty would when
the president laid down and allowed Aid
rich to have his amendments put into
the bill and when he went back on Bailey
and Tillman and Chandler, have been
over hero putting up a poor month to
the president and talking through tlie
administration papers to the effect that
they have been begging the president
not to sit 011 them so hard it would mash
all the water out of their stocks. What
they leally have been doing is to beg the
president, after patting him on the back,
to get the state legislatures 10 go slower
on them and to advocate in a message to
tiie next congress that all transportation
shall be declared interstate commerce
and shall he placed under the control of
the Interstate Commerce Commission
Xliey have got that machine grabbed,
and they know it is an easier matter to
control it than to control all the state
legislatures. In other words, they are
assuring the president of their support of
lii 9 iuea of centralized government, thus
eliminating the power of the state to con
trol and regulate their own rates of
transportation within their own borders.
That is the combination between the
railroads ami the present republican ad
ministration to emasculate the power of
tho stale governments that the people of
this country are up against, and the
sooner they take cognizance of that fact
the better prepared they will be to beat it.

! As a Chehalis o.unty farmer, 'whose
chief inti rem in polities is to vote for
! wh.it I consider the tiest men, and pay
| taxes, I have listened to and rend much
I about the division of Chehalis county, I
J yet all I have eeen or heard so far lias
been a fight of politicians. The ordinary
taxpayers—who font the hills for all mis
taken—seem lo have been lost sight of in
the contention for a few offices, or con
trol of party.
Viewing the subject from my stand
point, I can see nothing but cause for
congratulation for this end of the county
in the withdrawal of Grays Harbor. The
portion left as Chehulis county has a
fairly good road system, including
bridges, that has cost hundreds of thou
sands of dollars; a court bourse that will
answer for years, and is entirely out of
debt with a handsome cash balance on
hand. This being true, we shall be nice
ly equipped to keep step in the inarch of
progress with a very low rate of taxation.
On tiie other hand, if the county re
mained as it is we should have to help pay
for roads, bridges and other improve
ments that are now demanded in your
part of the county. The required im
provements there will be very costly,
and Grays llaibor being the most popu
lous,that section would control the coun
ty commissioners so as to secure such ap
propiiations as asked for, while we sit up
here, hold the hag and pay when called
Chehalis county w ill have an area of
about 540 square miles and a population
of over 12,000, anil in my humble judg
ment we sliail get along admirably oil a
good deal less money than at present.
The fear that the county will he weak
politically—although for that 1 don't
care a whoop—is not so well founded. I
notice we shall equal Thurston in popu
lation, and very nearly in area; more
than double Mason in population, with
its U93 square miles; nearly double Paci
fic with 'J25 square miles. Chehalis will
lead Asotin, Garfield, Island, Kitsap,
Sun Jnan and Wakiakum counties, and,
with its lich bottom lands and splendid
timber is destined to become one of the
populous and wealthy counties of this
Chehalis County Fariikr.
