Roosevelt when in office for 7
years gave the people a thimblefull
of reform. To get back again he
is promising them that he will ac
complish a mountain of reform.
But he denies knowing anything
about those oily dollars.
Samuel G. Blythe, political writ
er for the Saturday Evening Post,
with a circulation of nearly two
million, says in the issue of Sep
tember 21:
After visiting Washington, Ore
gon, California, Utah, Nevada,
Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Kan
sas, Colorado, Nebraska and lowa,
some aspects of the situation are
reasonably clea t t i me. These
can be summed up as follows:
First: Those persons in the east
and elsewhere who think that The
odore Roosevelt has lost any great
portion of his popularity in this
wide territory are misinformed.
Second: Those persons who are
expecting the progressive move
ment to subside and the former
republicans in it to stick to the
old party and vote with it in No
vember are in error, judging from
conditions as I find them the clos
ing days of August.
Third: Those persons who
think that the farmers, the work
ingmen, the skilled shop-laborers,
the factory men, the railroad men,
the traveling men, the small busi
ness men, the storekeepers and
their clerks do not intend to vote
for Roosevelt and Johnson in large
numbers—in amazingly large num
bers—have no knowledge of what
the mass of the people have in
Fourth: Those Taft men who
hope that any considerable number
of conservative democrats will
vote for Taft, and in a way offset
the loss to the republican party
through the defection to Roosevelt,
have no substantial basis for that
Fifth: Those Wilson men who
are convinced that a large number
of the old-line republicans will
vote for Wilson in order to make
the protest against Roosevelt most
effective are right.
Sixth: Those people who con
tend that this is a fight between
Roosevelt and Wilson, with Tail
hopelessly out of it, at this tirn<\
have an adequate conception of
the circumstances.
Seventh : Any person who, bas
ing his conclusions on figures, tab
ulations, comparisons, canvasses,
straws or past performances, pre
tends to be able to say with any
degree of certainty what the out
come of it all will be is pretending

HDd children work tinder conditions that would disgrace Russia.
and nothing more.
Superficially, as a mere matter
of political mathematics, it would
seem and does seem that Wilson
is most likely to be elected.
Senator LaFollette, one of the
few men in public life worthy to
the title of progressive republican,
and who has spent thirty years in
the forefront of battle against spe
cial privileges, gives his opinion
of Roosevelt as follows: "While
Roosevelt was president he offered
no encouragement to the progres
sive republicans who were strug
gling against the old boss con
trolled machines in the various
states. He gave; no aid in the fight
for direct primaries or other pro
gressive legislation. His ap
pointees were the most active
agents of the opposition, and his
influence was all on the side of the
When a Canadian farmer buys
an American plow for $7.20 after
a duty of 15 per cent has been paid
on it, and an American farmer
pays $9 for a plow just like it,
where does the American farmer
benefit by the protective tariff?
Fargo Democrat: If Roosevelt
had been nominated at Chicago he
would now be defending the re
publican party and attacking the
democratic party. He would have
claimed that the republican party
is still the proper instrument to
bring about all needed reforms.
He would have been proud of its
record on the whole, and would
have taken the position that no
man is a good republican or a
really wise man who would desert
his party. He wasn't nominated
and now he finds the republican
party has been horribly corrupt
for many years. Queer isn't it?
When the third tenner left
office, after nearly eight years of
opportunity to "help the con
sumer," that consumer was pay
ing 25 per cent more for woolen
blankets than during the previous
ten-year period ; 27 per cent more
for cotton flannels; 40 per eeni
more for women's dress goods;
67 to 104 per cent more for pre
served meats; :i0 to 180 per cent
more for steel products; 24 to %
per cent more for lumber; 2!) to
•'{6 per cent, more fur window
glass, and from 38 to 46 per cent
more for furniture. Thus it is ap
parent that when the third termer

was in power, and really had a
chance to do something, he allowed
the trusts to rob both the farmer
and the consumer. Xow that lie
is out of office, and wants to get
back in, he blandly tells both the
betrayed farmer and tin; betrayed
consumer, that he is their friend,
and anxious to help them. And
Oeorge W. Perkins, who profited
most by this betrayal of the farmer
and the consumer, is backing the
third tenner's ambitions with
The Bull Moose,
(By George Ade.)
Folks say I'm crazy,
But I don't care, I don't care.
I mouth and fume like a crazy man,
I rant and roar like no one can.
I hand out lots of foolish bluff,
But since the people like my stuff—
I don't care.
I shout and cuss in swelling notes,
But what care I if I get the votes?
I've pulled my hat from out the ring,
So I can talk through the darned old
Just make a note when I throw a fit,
And see if the crowd doeHn't fall for it—
So I don't care.
I'm strong on personalities,
I'm long on generalities;

And ax for the interests-they must
I may be crazy, but I'm not quite daft,
With Perkins behind me-where is Taft?
I don't care.
