IN LINE Senators Who Voted to 8at Theto Representatives of Privilege and Special Interests United In Working for Taft's 't' Renomlnatlon. (The following Ih furnished by the. Roosevelt third term prnpnKnndn nnd wo do unt vouch for Its correctness 1ml 'publish It merely ns a mntter of nens. Hd. Mirror.) Uecauso o'f tho high-handed methods which have boon UHed by tho Tnft managers to socuro' delegates far tho ronoralnatlon of tho president, n situ ation has nrlBcn In tho ranks of his own supporters which Is bound to liavo a tremendous Influence upon tho results of tho Chicago convention. There is developing a feeling among them that tho methods they have pur Bued aro wrong, not becouso of their realization that tho ordinary rules of ethics have been violated, but because tho fact Is being brought homo to them that tho rank and fllo of tho American voters aro determined upon clean politics, especially in connection with tho nomination and election of, their chief magistrate. Tho country has witnessed tho spcctaclo of tho dragoonlug of federal office holders not only In tho south but throughout tho land for tho purpose of forcing tho selection of Taft delegates. OlIV ctalB daring to display independence are subjected to charges of pernicious political activity or threatened with discipline. In tho Indiana state con vention contesting Taft delegates from Marlon county wero permitted to voto upon tho question of whether they should remain In tho convention. In New York tho groBS frauds which disenfranchised thousands of Republi cans added crlni'o to tho farce of the State. In Colorado tho Guggenheim machine, supported by tho vast power of tho Guggenheim interests, domi nated tho situation and forced tho election of delegates pledged to voto for Mr. Taft. These conditions have beon repeat ed elscwho.ro and give a dlstnsto to candidacy of a man promoted by such outrageous methods. Wherever a propor primary Is held there Is absent tho cry of fraud. In the case -of North Dakota, for oxamplo, no ono ques tioned tho result. This likewise was true of Oklahoma. It will bo true of Nobruska, California. Oregon. Now Jcr- bey and Massachusetts. It will bo' true alao..of Illinois und Maryland, If those states shall secure a presidential preference primary law such as ob tains In North Dakota and other states. Composition of Taft Machine. In vlow of tho way in which tho Taft machine is operating, It Is Inter esting to seo who composo it. Its manager, Congressman McKinley of Illinois, Is a traction magnate, a warm personal friend of ex-Speaker Joseph Q. Cannon, and ono of Cannon's most ardent supporters In tho houso of representatives. McKinley was re warded for his subservlenco by ap pointment to chairmanship of an Im portant committee and by being placed In charge of tho congressional campaign committee. In this way he became qui to a power among his fel low congressmen, and during his years in Washington becamo known , to Aldrlch, Crane, Smoot and tho other representatives of tho "Inter ests." Aldrlch Is still In Washington, watching over various matters In which ho 1b Interested and which aro Important to his friends in New York, and assisting iu tho direction of the Taft campaign. Ho still maintains tho most friendly relations with Mr. Taft, who Indorsed him bo cordiully in u speech at Bor.ton. after having ao- t f f f t f t f T T T f t t T T t t f See My Smile? , If You Rode An Iver Johnson-Keeler They ride so much easier, ordinary "hand-me-down'' Would you like to smile? 112toll6 pfbved tho tirirf laW, whfoS' tlTo then Benator from Ithbde Island largely framed, In passing, It may, bo said that tho reports of the tariff board on tho wool and cotton schedules of this law show tho disgraceful protection accorded to the wool-and cotton man ufacturers under It. Particularly In connection With rotton, tho duties upon which aroused Mr. Aldrlch's es pecial concern, because of tho pres sure of tho cotton trust, known to tho trade as the Arkwrlght club, it should bo notod that tho tariff board's report shows that Ameilcan labor, especially upon plain goods, Is no better paid than English labor, and that tho sole result of tho duties is to keep tho American market for the special ex ploitation of tho Arkwrlght club either In normal or abnormal times. Mr. Aldrlch approved tho choice of Mr. McKinley as Mr. Taft's campaign manager. So did Senator Crano of Massachusetts and Senator I'enroso of Pennsylvania, whoso oynlcnl disregard of the rights of tho plain peoplo Is known tho country over. In fact, Crane recommended Mr. McKinley to Mr. Taft. Smoot of lUnh regards tho selection or an excellent one. May Be Judged by Their Actions. Perhaps tho best Indication of the character of tho men behind Taft la shown by tho votes of those of his supporters in tho schato In tho Lorl nior and Stephenson bribery cases. Starting with New England, wo find that Dillingham of Vermont voted for Loiimer last winter and was chair man of tho now coramltteo which an outraged sentiment 'orced tho senate to appoint. In this position ho showed time und time again his sympathy for Lorlmor nuu wus so unfair as to in vito sharp criticism. Ho supported Lorlmer in a report to tho senate and will do so in tho Bonato Itself. It is hardly necessary to say that ho votod to retain Stephenson, a man who ad mitted a personal expendlturo of $107,000 in his senatorial campaign. Qalllnger and Uurnham of Now Hamp shire voted for Lorlmer last winter, for Stephenson a few days ago und unquestionably will voto for Lorlmer again. Crano of Massachusetts voted for Lorlmer and Stephenson and will support Lorlmer a second time. Lip pltt, who succeeded Aldrlch, and Wot more of Rhodo Island voted for Ste phenson. Llppitt waa not a member of the senate when tho Lorlmer voto occurred last winter, but thero 1b no question aB to what ho will do. Wet mora voted for Lorlmer tho first time and will do so again. Hrandegoo of Connecticut is a member of tho sen ate ring, and has stood by both Lorl mor and Stephenson. McLean, the new cenator from Connecticut, voted for Stephenson. Hoot of Now York voted against Lorlmer and for Stcphonson. This likewise is tho situation of liurton. of Ohio, Pago of Vermont and Suther land of Utah. Penrose nnd Oliver of Pennsylvania Joyfully press Stephen son and Lorlmer to their bosoms. They voted for both men nnd will stand by them to tho end, Dupont of Delawaro, himself under charges of having purchased his sent In the sen ato, and his colleague, Richardson, both voted for Lorlmer nnd Stephen son. Dupont will expect the favor to bo roturued. IJradley of Kentucky, who Is supporting Taft. also support ed Lorlmer and Stephenson. All Ardent Supporters of Taft. In Illinois, Lorlmer is fighting for Taft, and In Wisconsin Stephenson is doing llkowlso. In South Dakota, Gamble, who voted for both Lorlmor and Stephenson, Is advocntlng Taft's nomination. This likewise Is true of Warren nnd Clark of Wyoming, both of whom voted for Lorlmer nnd Stephenson. Senator Heyburn of Ida ho has been tho nrdont champion of both Lorlmer nnd Stephenson. Of course, ho Ib for Taft. 8enator Smoot of Utah fought for Lorlmer and Ste phenson. Ho is fighting for Taft. Sonator Guggenheim, who is Identi fied with tho poworful Guggenholm Interests, and delivered tho Colorado delegation to tho Taft column, stood shoulder to shoulder with Lorlmer and Stephenson. Senator Nixon Is tho Nevada cog In tho machlno nnd tho aid of tho two senators whoso election, it was charged, was pro cured through bribery and corruption. Senator Perkins of California voted for both Lorlmer nnd Stcnhonson.

Of tho Taft Republicans In tho sen ate, only Smith nnd Townsend of Michigan, Drown of Nebraska and Jones of "Washington, voted against both Lorlmor nnd StephenBon. That Is to say, but four of Taft's support ore In this largo body of mon. known to tho country as "the greatest legis lative assomblago in tho world," havo stood before tho country for clean nndlionest politics. This was reduced to three, when Jones voted tho sec ond tlmo In the commltteo report, for Lorlmer. Tako tho record of tho progressive Republicans, on tho other hand. Ev ery ono of them stands for senatorial and presidential preforenco primaries. Lvery ono of them Is opposed to po litical corruption of any form. Every ono of them voted to unseat Lorlmor and Stephenson and thus put tho brnnd of dishonor upon men seeking n scat In the upper houso of congress bor through bribery. n splto of tho action of tho senate I seating Lorlmer nnd Stephenson b narrow mnJorltlcB, It is perfectly evident that tho country docs not nc cept the verdict ns Just. The over whelming sentiment Ib that seats In the HPiiatc should be- obtained by hon orable and not by (dishonorable. means Whnt Ih true of tho Bonate la likewise true of tho presidency. It Is evident thnt any man who Is an as pirant for tho highest ofTlco In tho land must bo clean morally, ethically nnd pollflcully. Ho cannot nfford to ho smirched by corruption and fraud. Ho cannot afford to bo a party" to methods which aro a stench In tho nostrils of tho nation. There is an election to follow tho nomination. Tho Republican pnrty, to bo certain of victory, must hao as Its candidate n londer of whoso probity there Is no question, upon whoso record no tnlnt .an be caBt, and whoso selection Ib brought ubout by fair and honorablo moans. Mr Taft has ceased to he In this clnss. Ho confided his for tunes to Mr McKInloy, knowing tho man nnd knowing for what ho stood. Ho has accepted as his advisors men llko Crano, Penrose, Smoot and oth ers, knowing tho vow takon of thorn by tho American peoplo based upon their records ns "public servants." Ho haB accepted the support of other men, notably Iorlmer and Stephen son, knowing how they gained their elections.

There Is nnothor old saw that ovll associations corrupt good manners, In view of what is .known about Mr. Tafts advisers nnd supporters, ill vlow of tho outraged public sentlrnent which has been created by tho spectacle of the Pres Idept of tho United States consorting nnd advising with, and appiovlng tho action of buoIi men, the wiseacres In Mr Taft's Immediate clrclo are roallz Ins thnt ho cannot nnd should not be tho nomlneo of tho Republican party, To rnako him tho standard bearer would bo to Invito Incvltablo defeat. It Is this irenllzntlon that is re sponsible for ,the circulation of re ports In Taft newspapers about a pos sible compromise on another candi date thnn tho President or Colonel Roosevelt. Taft supporters have sought to create the Impression that those reports 1 emanate from tho Roosevejt headquarters. Nothing Is farther from th'o truth The strength Colonel Roosoveit haB with the voters Is phenomenal. The oteis are being deprived or their rights by machlno methods, hut the men behind the Taft candldncy nro finding that Ihesc vot- prs will not bo disenfranchised, thnt they will havo Jlielr preference re corded. It Is (heir demands that will bo hoard In Chicago and that will re sult In Colonol Roosevelt's nomina tion. NOW THE IRRIGATION CLUB Work on Reclamation Projects Held Up Untlf States Send Taft Delegates. Letters received at tho Taft head qimrtora In Washington from some of tho arid land states of the Rocky Mountain region show that tho uso of tho Federal patronage club ns a incnnB of forcing the election of Taft delegates to tho Republican nntlonal convention is only one of tho schemen by which the Taft mnnagers nro seek ing to brJng'5ibout' tlio renomlnatlon of their cnridldat6, regardless of the deslro of tho rank nnd file of the Re publican partS-; ' Theso letters report a now method of nppljlng Federal pressure It Is-an astonishing moth od, nnd It ovldqncos a desperation on tho part of the Tuft managers which could hardly bo believed If tho evi dence wcro not bo clear. This new method has to do wjth the nntlonal Irrigation policy. One of tho greatestnchlevementa of Theo dore Roosevolt's administration was the adoption of this national irriga tion policy and tho creation of the reclamation service for tlio establish ment of irrigation works In tho dry land states of the west, and tho open ing up of the lands thus reclaimed to farm settlement. Tho woik has been enormously successful ThousnndB of 3iibstantl.il farmers havo found homes upon land made astonishingly fertile by Irrigation, which before tho ndop tlon of thU policy lay Idle and unpro ductive. Millions of ncres of sage brush have been made productive of enormous crops. Tho work has beon of Incalculable value to tho nation as a whole. Now, for; purely political icasons and In tho effort to force tho selection of delegates to the Re publican national convention who will ote for tho renomlnntton of Mr, Taft, this great Irrigation work has receiv ed a tremendous chock. A slnglo Il lustration Biilllces to. show; In tho State of Colorado thero nro two Irri gation projects under way, one Is what Is known as tho Grand Valley project, tho other what is known ns the Gunnison Tunnel project. Tho Grand Valley project was started by tho reclamation servlco In 1908, when James R, Garfield, ono of Colonel Roosevelt's enthusiastic supporters, was Secretary of tho Interior. The contracts were approved and tho work commenced. Thirty days nfter tho Inauguration of Mr. Taft and the Installation of Richard A. nnlllnger as Secretary of tlio Interior this work was stopped. Slnco tlint time, on one pretext or another, no work has beon done. There litis beon a long hnrd round of investigations, by Bjieclal agents and army boards, until the wholo project Is wound up In red tnpo and delay Thousands of ncres of land that might by this 'lime have been .brvught under rater Jo .furnish jLiL.-i-ami 1 .

Food and tents uro being rushed ns fast as porslblo. Tho greatest danger at present Is Jutt above Mem phis where all havo been warned to flee. homes for many families, and produc tive farms of great altto to the na tion's commerce, are still Idle be cause of the Inactivity of the interior department. At tho Bnmo time, work on tho GunnlEon tunnel Is at a Btand Btlll, nnd tho reclamation of tho great Umcompahgro vnlley Is not completed. Two years ago Congress provided n special emergency fund of twenty-flvo million dollars ($25,000. 000) In order that certain of these projects which had been started might bo hurried through to comple tlon. Of this fund ono million five hundred thousand dollars ($1,500,000) was allotted to tho Grand Vnllpy project, but still tho word was not given to commence work under this allotment and nothing Is done Word now comes to tho RooBevolt head quarters In Wnshlngton that tho re clamation service agents upon some of theso suspended projects have re ceived direct Information from tho de partment of tho Interior plainly stat ing that this and other Irrigation projects are being held up until the different states affected report prop-o-ly to Washington on tho subject of delegntes to tho (Republican national convention. It Is not a question with the Tnft managers of tho development of the arid lands of tho west. It Is not a question of tho reclamation of thou sands of acres of sagebrush and the opening up of hundreds of productive farms, It Is not a question of the In crease of the commerce of the coun try, It la only a question of driving through tho selection of a few more Tuft delegates to tho Chlcugo conven tion. j Tho Roosovelt delegates, 'ndt the Taft delegates, will hit and voto In the Republican national convention in Chi cago, bocaqso tho Republican party will never stand for sucli methods.
