ILLEGAL USE OF MONEY IN

There Is great activity these days
In the Democratic camp; Willard
Saulsbnry is feeling the Demo
cratio pulse on the Presidential
So the report goes,
almost all the Democrats of this
State favor Woodrow Wilson for
the Democratic Presidential nomi
It is very apparent that Mr.
Sanlsbury bas turned the tables
on Slate Chairman Thomas F.
Bayard and secured the advant
ageous political position of father
Inji the Wilson boom in this State,
trat it does not follow that thiB
political zephyr will occasion any
friction jn the Démocratie ranks.
In fact, it shows that the Demo
eratlc party in this State is very
mach alive at the present time and
they are taking advantage of the
opportunity to appeal to the Pro
gressive sentiment in this State by
advocating Woodrow Wilson for
President. It is a fact that Wilson
U popular in this State. His name
has long been familiar to Delà
warenns. There are a number of
graduates of Princeton College in
this State. His political career bas
been watched with great Interest
and most Delawareans withont re
ghrd to politics, have rejoiced over
his victories in New Jersey, so that,
nndoubtedly, he would be the
strongest Democratic nominee for
President in this State, and if Taft
be nominated by the Republicans,
wonld probably carry It.
The present activity of the Demo
crate In this State Is in strong con
trast to the lack of it on the part
of the Republicans. The "Organ!
zation'' which is running the Re
^ publican party, Is drifting along as
^fc^moncernedly as if they expected
aille to go out up.xt election
HHHkul bny the election willimit

■Hum to till- Progressive sen
J;id^Hcnt which is rapaidly growing
If they are aware of it they
have made no sign. It is gener
ally supposed that Senator duFont
and Representative Heald favor
the renomination of Taft, although
their turn down on the Internal
Revenue Collector appointment
may cool their enthusiasm for Taft.
Taft's prosecution of the Powder
Trnst may also be remembered by
the Senator, so that, the position
of even the dnPont "Organization"
on the Republican Presidential
nomination is somewhat uncertain.
The growing uncertainty of Taft's
v renomi'iation will help the "Or
ganization" and its leaders to re
member these little unpleasant
nesses. But what ever their atti
tude, it is their duty to ascertain
the sentiment of the Republicans
of this State regarding the Repub
lican nominee for President.
The Democrats have canvassed
their party on this important ques
tion and why should not the State
Committee of the Republican par
ty do the same? If the "Organiza
tion" is truly representative of the
Republicans of this State and not of
a few of the leaders it should want
to know whom the Republicans
of this State want nominated for
President. If they are the personal
"Organization" of one man ora
few men, of coarse it makes no
difference. If snch be the case all
the "Organization" has to do is to
wait to receive orders of their Boss.
When he directs they will hold
their convention and name dele
gatee acceptable to him and in
struct them to vote for the man he
favors for the Republican Presi
dential nomination. This will
probably be the cut and dried
plan, but If It is, we want to re
mind this self-same "Organiza
tion" that it will-not meet with
popular approval and a good many
Republicans in this State, who be
lieve the time bae come to give the
poople themselves some say in run
ning party affairs, will feel free to
vote for the men of their choioe.
President Taft has consented to a
primary vote on Presidential nomi
nees tn Ohio, bis native State, and
why should not Republicans in
other States have the same
tunity to express their choioe In
this matterf Why does not the
hold a general primary in this
State just prior to the Republican
National Convention and let the
Republicans of this State say by
their votes whom they want nomi
nated tor President?
