Democratic victory seems further
«ff than it did several weeks ago. In
many ways the present campaign is
similar to the memorable contest
-when W. Bryan won the title of
the Silver Tongued Orator. iHad the
election occurred within two weeks
following the Baltimore convention,
Wilson -would undoubtedly have 'been
chosen but with time to calmly ana
lyse the facts and conditions, voters
are beginning to hesitate and the tide
hag taken a very decided turn and
the party behind 'Wilson are now
aware that his chance of being elect
ed is growing le&s every day. For a
time voters may be swayed by popu
lar clamor, but sooner or later will
reach a stage when they will begin to
do their own analyzing, as they are
doing now and will notice that not
withstanding the warnings soun4ed

'Bryan and his followers for the
past many years, factories in. every
port of the country are working night
and day, railroads have all the busi
ness that they can handle, mines are
tunable to supply the demands made
.1 upon them, cities are growing as
never before in the history of the
-country, farmers are building larger

children, "buying: automobiles and

there is evidence of prosperity on
every hand. They understand that to
reduce the cost of the necessities of
life they must reduce the price the
producer receives for his produce and
so will hesitate. They realize that
the rich are growing richer, at the
same time are compelled to note that
the condition of the middle classes
has also greatly improved and that
they are also growing more prosper
ous. They see the need of many re
forms but on sober second thought
prefer to leave th'e matter in experi
enced hands rather than make a radi
cal change that would place the mat
ter in the hands of a man who as
governor of his own state never made
a -beginning at real reform and who
at
various times has taken a stand
est every side of the various large pub
lie questions without holding, for any
of time a positive opinion on
thinking now and as the result it
Is very probable that Wilson will not
toe high man even with the new party
In the field. While no man knows
what the final outcome will be It Is
a fact that there is a rapidly grow
ing anti-Wilson sentiment through
the country and that he has not suc
ceeded in galqjng recognition as a
great party leader, as a great cam
paigner or in fact In being recognis
ed as having any grdat qualities that
would draw men to him and place
him as even a poor second to Bryan,
in fact many question Bryan's judg
ment in choosing this candidate* to
lead In this campaign.
Between 1893 and 1897, when the
democrats were in power, farm pro
ducts reached the lowest prices for
years, according to authentic figures
from the U. 8, bureau of labor. The
difference between the prices In 189$
and 1911 is shown hy the following
table:

These prices show a phenomenal
increase in the .prices of farm pro
ducts between the dates mentioned.
The advance in percentage was as
follows: Corn, 200 wheat, 67 cot*
ton, 28 oats, 166 rye, 137 barley,
308 timothy hay, 138 hops, 286 po
tatoes, 282 flax seed, 149 good cat
tle, 62 good hogs, 96 dairy butter,
86 and eggs, 90. In the light of
these authentic figures, can any farm
er doubt the benefits—even the neces
sity—of -a protective tariff to make
certain of a-good market for farm
products?
It is a regrettable thing that Jack
Johnson, the colored brute, is not in
some of the southern states where
there are laws adequate to Ht such a
case a» his, presents to the authori
ties. Few people' believe in railroad
ing a man to the pen, -but in this case
it seems that it is about the only
way to dispense with one of the most
depraved creatures that has come in
to public notice in the country for
years, ^nd it is to be hoped that the
government authorities will find some
means of depriving the black wretch
of his liberty. He is a distgrace to
his color.
The democrats are awfully disap
pointed in La Follette. They antici
pated that because he was. defeated
as a presidential candidate he would
attach himself to the democratic
noise, but such was not to be. La
Follette thinks that even the worst
factors in the old .party are prefer
able to the 'best that the democrats
have to offer, and will remain and
fight for progressive principles in the
republican party, where h£ firmly "be
lieves that the greatest amount of
good can be accomplished.
There is one way to reduce the cots
of living and that way, to use a fa
miiar democratic expression,- is as
easy as rolling off a log—just reduce
the price the farmer receives for his
produce. If given the power the
democrats are pledged to do this, by
reducing the tariff.
There are many of the older voters

PROF. WILSON AND HARD. TIMES.
(Furnished and paid for by the pro
gressive party.)
Question: Will Wilson's election
mean hard times?
Answer: There are serious reasons
for 'believing so, and every voter
should consider them carefully before
casting his ballot.
}. Would-this apply to the whole
United States or merely to North Da
kota?
A. Both, but more particularly to
North Dakota.
Q. What are the reasons for fear
ing hard times under a democratic
administration?
A. First, If the tariff is reduced to
a revenue only basis, as advocated by
Wilson and the democrats it will
mean that millions of dollars worth
of manufactured goods will be sent in
to the United States We will get
the goods, but some other country
will get the money. The men that
would have made these articles will
be out of work and will not have the
money to buy what, we have to sell.
Unemployed labor means hard times.
Second, -business men will not in
vest money in factories if there is
danger of the tariff being taken off.
A good business man plays safe- This
means more idle men.
Third, most 'business ventures de
pend upon good times for success, and
if for any reason they fear haTd times
they will hoard their money and re
trench^ in §very way.
Fourth, fear of the democrats and
their tariff ideas has become a belief
that has been handed down from
father to son for a half century, and
this tradition was greatly strengthen
ed by experiences under the Cleve
land administration.
Fifth, the manufacturers are able
and may cause a panic in order to
discourage the tariff for revenue only
idea.
Q. Is the last an argument for the
tariff?
A. No, but it is a fear that wise
men will consider. They would prob
ablt stand for some cut 'the tariff,
but not the extreme proposed by the
democrats. After the Trusts are
placed under control as proposed by
Roosevelt, there wotgld be much less
rdanger in reducing the tariff.
I Q. What posotion does each of the
Candidates take on the Tariff.
I A. Taft is for high tariff Wilson
for no tariff except for revenue and
Roosevelt -for the happy medium.
Q. How does it effect us in North
Dakota?'
A. Hard times, and low prices for
everything, and all business at a
stand still.
Q. Will the democrats take off
the tariff on our wheat and flax. '.
A. Yes, they have so promised,
and so voted when given an oppor
tunity in Congress.
Q. Will this -mean a serious loss
to our farmers?' 1%
A. Yes, it will mean an annual loss
to every farmer of several hundred
dollars.
Q. Which of the candidates advo
cate protection for the farmer? |g|
A Theodore Roosevelt, only.
