Seal 1 SECRETARY Or"3TATC Per Gallon Vital Washington News. Bj Clide H Tavrnser Washington, Oct. 17. ThKiore Roosevelt's star of destiny is falling! While he was jn the South dicker ing for the supjHirt of Republican delegates to the 1912 convention, a vigorous movement was started among the "genuine" pnressives of the West and MiddIe West looking toward the withdrawal of all support from the former president. Some of the leaders of the Congres sional delegation of progressives quietly talked the situation over and decided not to permit Roosevelt to run away with the leadership of the national progressive movement. If necessary to prevent the ex-president from using the progressive movement for his own personal advancement, these real progressives will publicly repudiate Roosevelt. They will di rect public attention to the gross duplicity Roosevelt practiced on the people by proclaiming himself a pro gressive and then straightway turning about and allowing the New York state convention over which he hail absolute control to adopt a platform indorsing the Payne-Aid rich tariff jugglery and the reactionary Taft ad ministration. The New York platform squarely describes the Payne-Aldrieh law as a fulfillment of Republican promises, because it states there was an aver age reduction of all duties of 1 1 per cent, which, if true, would constitute revision downward. This is in contrast to the Wisconsin republican platform which states un equivocally that "the Payne-Aldrieh tariff is not a compliance with the pledge of the Republican party." LaKollette, Clapp, Hristow, Cummins .ind Dolliver are on record as saying the Republican promise of downward revision was not carried out. There fore if Roosevelt was right, the pro gressives who declared otherwise are members of the Ananias club, which they emphatically deny, and which the public does not believe. The Roosevelt-made platform con tains still another paragraph which makes T. R. impossible as leader of the genuine progressives in 1912 to wit: "We enthusiastically- indorse the progressive and statesmanlike leadership of William Howard Taft." The genuine progressives "enthus iastically" do NOT indorse the Taft administration. Progressives like LaFollettc condemn Taft for having filled his cabinet with representatives of the special interests; for having in dorsed Cannon as another Lincoln, Aldrich as the greatest living finan cier and the tariff law as the best tariff bill ever passed; and last but not least, for having throughout his administration sought counsel from men like Aldrich, Guggenheim, Ste- j phenson, Dalzell and 'Fordney. while at the same time refusing to give even respectful notice to the sugges tions of progressive Republicans. Through indorsing the tariff and Taft, Roosevelt has queered himself with the progressives. They will not permit him to enter the 1912 progres sive movement, much less to bring in with him Mr. Taft and Klihu Root, the messenger boy of Wall street. Kooscvclt Was in Control. Roosevelt declares that had he been in absolute control of the New York Republican Convention he "would have written the tariff plankdiffercnt lv." He was in absolute control. He named the platform committee himself, in violation of all precedents. As temporary chairmanoftheconven- tion he removed four members of the committee and substituted delegates personally acceptable to himself. He hail made a rough draft of the platform before he left his homo at Sagamore Hill. He made a speech on ! the floor of the convention in behalf j of the direct nominations plank, but' j he said never a word about the tariff. yuery: it ne nan pronounced views on the tariff why did he not air them? It would have been an opportunity to reveal his much-boasted courage and fearlessness. Mr. Roosevelt could have prevented the platform from in dorsing the tariff, or could have made it say anything he wished on that sub ject Pity the Manufacturers. "We must have more protection! Otherwise the foreign manufacturers will drive us of our home markets!" This was the cry that went up from the lobbies of the manufacturers in Washington while the tariff was being revised. The fact is, however, that instead of being in danger of being driven out of home markets, our man ufacturers are competing successfully with the manufacturers in nearly ev ery country on earth by selling their goods cheaper abroad than to home consumers. During the eight months ended with Augustthere were export ed in all l,027,0m,0(X) worth of goods. Manufactured products composed more than 52 per cent of that, valued at more than $542,000,000. Exports of that class represented $2,500,O(M) for each business day. Twenty years ago they were only a liule more than $750,000 a day. Lloyd Did Excellent Work. Nearly all of the 391 Democratic congressional candidates have been nominated. To James T. Lloyd of Missouri, chairman of the National Democratic Congressional Committee, properly belongs a large share of the credit for the high character of the men selected to make the race in the name of Democracy. From the mo ment he took charge of the campaign Mr. Lloyd concentrated hisefforts up on seeing that men of high moral character and recognized integrity were named. "We can win, but only if we present men of proven patriotism and integrity, to the voters, "declared Mr. Lloyd over and over again to the Democratic leaders throughout the country. This was practically an ul timatum, because Chairman Lloyd saw to it personally that his wish was car ried out. A Tariff Example. The plate glass trust, made possible by the higher tariff wall, has added 100 per cent to its selling prices in about two years time, and of this ad vance it gave one-sixth to the work men ami five-sixths to the stockhold ers. This trust makes the American consumer pay nearly $2 for every $1 worth of glass he buys. It will be no ticed that the ratio of 1 to 5 is about the usual proportion in which the Re publican party protects the laborer and rich manufacturer. NEEDFl L KNOWLEDGE. Butler People Should Learn to Detect the Approach of Kidney Disease. The symptoms of kidney trouble are so unmistakable that they leave no ground for doubt. Such kidneys excrete a thick, cloudy, offensive urine, full of sediment, irregular of passage or attended by a sensation of scalding.
