I PRINCESS THEATER MEEKER, COLO., SATURDAY, JULY 29. 1910. Ed Taylor for Congress The people of Itio Blanco county will bo glad to hear that their able representative in Congress—Ed Tay lor, will he a candidate forrenomina tion at the coming primary. With the completion of his present term, Mr. Taylor will have served eight years in Congress, the longest congressional term in the history of Colorado; and even Ed’s political opponents will say 110 has served the people of the state well. It is safe to say that there is not a community in Colorado that not received from a few to a great many direct benefits from matters which have had his personal attention, or from some of the many measures that he has passed or helped to pass through Congress, one of the latest being the recently enacted Federal Good Roads hill, which ho helped to frame and pass. The people of the Fourth district should keep Ed Taylor iu Congress as long as he will consent to servo. Wilson and Why “I have five good reasons for sup porting Wilson for the presidency,” says Bay Stannard Baker. “He is the steadiest, safest, clear est-thinking leader iu public life to day. In the world crisis he has not been stampeded by extremists of either typo, neither by Roosevelt nor by Bryan. He has acted with that imperturbability and wisdom in the midst of unparalleled events, which are true marks of the highest leader stdp. In our difficult relationships with Germany lie got what lie set out to get; he got it because it was right and while maintaining the honor of the nation, kept us out of war. “Brogressivism with Wilson is a faith, not a policy. The nation to him is a living force, not hound by preju dices, partisanship or theories, hut moving steadily forward to meet the problems of a new time. There had been years of talk of progressive legis lation. Wilson welded his divided party together and actually placed on the statute books during the first half of his administration a remarkable body of real progressive laws. “I am for Wilson because lie has tl»e new Democratic and co-operative view of international relationships. “He has substituted fortheeviland greedy policy of “dollar diplomacy” iu our relationship with South or Centra! American new and friendly spirit. Pan-Americanism under him has ceased to he a mere name and lias become a living thing. I believe it to he his supreme ambition to make America an instrument in extending the same spirit throughout the world. “I am for Wilson because he has been tested and tried in the fire of the greatest events. I know what he is and what he can do. I know that he is master of the situation and lias handled the nations ufTairs upon the whole with great, wisdom, patience and courage. More than any other American lie is familiar with every crook and turn in our delicate nation al relationships iu this troubled time. Why should I think for a moment of substituting for such a leader an un tried man, without experience in these great national affairs, of whose views 1 am uncertain? We know Wilson and what lie lias done; all we can know of any other leader is what lie says lie will do. “I am for Wilson because I believe Dim to possess the clearest under standing of the true American spirit j of any man now in public life. He understands ifs historical origins and : inspirations; his whole life lias been j devoted to the study of American in stitutions. No series of books are superior to his as wise commentaries j upon American government. He un- j derstands also the American spirit in j its contemporary expression in public , opinion; in each great crisis during 1 the last, two years, when he has acted, ! the great mass of the American peo- ! I pie have been soundly with him and behind him. Therefore 1 trust him I beyond any other leader to meet the ; stormy events which are before us, and to meet them with the true Amer ican spirit. We are embarked for the first time in our history upon the un known and tempestuous seas of world politics, but we know that with Wil son at tiie helm the Ship of State will not only go forward on a true course, but will he safely, patiently, courage ously navigated.” “Married Guardsmen May Be Ex cused.” Headline. We thought the object all along was to get experienc ed fighters. No one will dispute the victory of George W. Perkin’s pocket book when the elephant swollowed the tnoose. The next best evidence of large char acter is that moral strength which enables us to recognize in others an ability we do not possess ourselves. T. R. Tells How Hughes Differs From Wilson “Colonel,” asked a visitor at Sag amore Hill, Oyster Bay. a couple of days ago (or at least so runs the story that came into The World office well authenticated), “what do you think is the greatest, most outstanding dif ference between President Wilson and Justice Hughes?” The Colonel's reply came hack like a whip snap. “There isn’t any difference between Wilson and Hughes,” said ho, “that a barber couldn’t remove in ten min utes.” [Hut this all happened before the recent Chicago conventions. It’s different now. Candidate Hughes and (he Colonel have met, and agreed to cut out all remarks of a sarcastic na ture, and in case of Hughes success at tilt? polls, the Colonel is to be made Secretary of war. Hence, it is differ ent now, and remarks about putting barbers to work don’t go any more.— El>. JIKHAMh] S. R. Berger, Hie Optometrist and Optician will he here at the Meeker hotel Monday and Tuesday, August 7th and Kth. Will test school children’s eyes free. A break in the pipe lino over iu South Rifle made it necessary to cut off the water all day Wednesday and Thursday in order that repairs could be made. The pipe line over there is all in had shape and it's only a matter of time until it will have to he replaced.—Rifle Telegram. From the above it would appear that Meeker isn’t the only town hav ing troubles with pipe lines. Mrs. Gower and Miss Gower were iu from Strawberry, Saturday.
