Roosevelt Says Platform 0f Both Old Parties are -Model of Bad Faith" EDITORIAL IN THE OUTLOOK Mr. Itfrit Declare if the Demo rrat Should lie Elected and tbe I'laJforin Carried Out it Would Mean Ruin to the Country Wilson Would Either Have to Repudiate i Mat form or Bring on a Financial ( rath Democratic Position on tbe Tru-t Question is Not Bound The pi-honest Trust Would not Fear Democrats. New York, July 29. In an edito rial la the Outlook to-day Theodore Roosevelt points out the faults and frailties of both old parties. He dis cusses "Platform Insincerity." The editorial Is as follows, In part: "The platforms of the two parties are models of dangerous insincerity and of bad faith. The platform of the Republican party is bad anyhow. Taken In connection with the action of the convention, it amounts to a declaration against actual rule by the people and a determination that the politicians or the beneficiaries of spe cial privilege shall completely domi nate the people in the future just as th y are doing at this moment. The actions of Mr. Taft and his adminis tration and the actions of the Repub lican National Convention itself j make any protestations or virtue on the part of the Barnes-Penrose-Gug-genheim combination, which at the moment represents all that is effici ent and real in the existing Republi can party, of no consequence whatso ever. ' The Baltimore platform offers per haps as oocl an example as any plat form of the last thirty years of what has beeome a typical vice of Ameri can polities the avoidance of say ing anything real on real issues and the announcement of radical policies with much sound and fury, and at the tame time with a cautious accom painment of weasel phrases, each of which sucks the meat out of the pre ceding statement. Neither the Re publican nor the Democratic platform shows the slightest grasp of the real situation that confronts this country the fact that we are now face to ace with a great industrial evolution which, unless frankly accepted as such by the Government, will become an industrial revolution. Democrats Weak on Tariff. "If Doctor Wilson were elected, he would either have to repudiate the promises made about the tariff in the Democratic platform or else bring in dustry in the coustry to a crash which would make all the panics in our past history seem like child'splay in com parison. "After stridently proclaiming that the protective tariff must be imme diately abolished and making asser tions about the present tariff duties which, if true, would demand their immediate abolition, it adds that in carrying out the principle enunciat ed it will proceed by legislation that will not injure or destroy legitimate industry. "This is as fine an example of a weasel phrase as could ever be im agined. Either it is itself absolutely meaningless or it sucks all meaning out of all the previous denunciations of the tariff. It admits in so many words that the tariff system is inti mately connected with the legitimate business of the country; it also says that it is unconstitutional, that it makes the rich richer and the poor poorer. "The same thing is true in what the Baltimore platform says of the high cost of living. It states that im port duties on the necessaries of life must be materially reduced. Yet la ter on it expresses a fervent purpose to encourage agriculture. But, of course, those who drew up this plat form must know that in the average household it is farm products which go to make up most of the cost of liv ing, and it is both cowardly and in Bncere not to state that the proposed reduction of duties is aimed primari ly at the farmer. 'Sound and Fury. "There is much sound and fury in the declaration for a drastic enforce ment of the anti-trust law. There is loud demand that it be enforced not merely by civil, but by criminal pro ceedings. There is a purpose ex pressed to amend it so that the Su preme Court will no longer be able to show any leniency in its construction. If this portion of the platform means anything, it means that the anti-trust law is to be made of such a character that it would, as President CanyHise has shown, if literally applied stop all business, not merely by business men, but by farmers throughout the United States. "There is not a dishonest trust in the country that could not afford to support the Democratic platform rather than face the honest and ef ficient purpose of the Progressive Party, and there is not an honest business concern in the country that would not be ruined if the promises i the Democratic platform were kept?' CHANGE OP POLICY BY JUSTICE CLAIIK. Ha Started an Extensive Speaking Campaign Declare Would be De plorable for This State to Elect Reactionary Senator Will Draw the Ubc Between IrogreiTeM and "Reactionaries.' Judge Walter Clark, one of the candidates for the Senatorial nomi nation in the November primary, has announced a definite change of pol icy of campaign. It had been generally understood throughout the State that Judge Clark would do little actlTe cam paigning, making perhaps one or two speeches at strategic points, and then trust to correspondence and the ef forts of his friends for the balance. Will Present Principle. Instead of this, Judge Clark has announced that he proposes to pre sent to the people of North Carolina ten principles which divide the "pro gressives" and "reactionaries in the Democratic party and upon which he and his opponents differ. He has al ready begun an extensive campaign and says that he is going to make speeches and as aggressive a fight as is necessary to cause the people to realize the importance of what ie at stake. He spoke at Greensboro Tues day night, Wentworth Wednesday, Cornelius today, and will speak at Charlotte Friday afternoon at the farmers' picnic and good roads con vention at Lakewood. Wants a Progressive Named. Judge Clark declares that it would be deplorable to have a reactionary Senate and that North Carolina ought not to contribute anything to such a result. This action on the part of Judge Clark has given boss Simmons more uneasiness than anything that has oc curred. HEAL ANCIENT HISTORY. (Continued from page 1.) the city ov Genoa an' he decided to resist to the utmost. But in April the Austrian general, Malas, an' the British invested the city so complete ly that communication with France wuz cut off entirely. Gen. Melas left some trops at Genoa an' marched to meet the French general, Suchet, de featin' him. The result ov this bat tle gave the Austrians much liberty ov action. They crossed the Alps, en tered France, an' were son master ov a portion ov the French territory in the Alps. On the Rhine General Mo reau opposed the Austrian General, Kray. Moreau succeeded in drivin' Kray before him az far az Ulm. At Hochstet the French whipped the Austrians ( awlso at Newberg. Thia forced the Austrians to fall back to Ongolstadt. The tide wuz beginnin' to turn. The Austrian government now became thoroughly alarmed, fearin that the French mite reach Viena, an' the Austrian people began to clamor for peace. On the side ov Austria next td Italy things didn't look very bright for Austria, either. They had invad ed France rather unexpectedly, an' at a time when France wuz busy ward in' off the attacks of the British. But France wuz pullin' herself together an' Bonaparte wuz helpin' to cheer France up, young though he wuz. He soon joined the French force which had been collected at an' about Dijon, and prepared to scale that awlmost impossible barrier, the Alps range ov mountains. To get cannon over these mountains wuz a task, but Gen. Bon aparte, better known az Napoleon Bonaparte, tackled the proposition. Large trees were cut and the trunks wrere hollowed into the form ov troughs. Through these Bonaparte had figured that he could slide the cannon down the steep mountains on the other side, if he could drag them to the summit. The passage over the mountains wuz so narrow and steep that but one man at a time could pass over the path. Young Napoleon wuz about to, an' did accomplish, what had heretofore been considered impossible, the passage ov the Alps by an army carryin' cannon. The passage wuz over Mount St. Bernard. The appearance ov Napoleon Bona parte with an army which had scaled the Alps wuz $l complete surprise to the Austrians. Before they realized fully that the French were really over the mountains an that they meant business, Napoleon had captur ed Aosta, the fort of Bard, Ivria, Romagno, and Vercelli bein' awlso captured. He crossed the Tessino River and entered Milan without op position. He captured valuable gov ernment property an' arms stored at Pavia; at ,Plaentia he took charge ov the city. While hit iz not authorita tively stated, hit iz likely that each city wtuz looted. Napoleon Bonaparte had set a new pace for the sleepy old generals who lived in the past, had accomplished what had been counted impossible since the creation, the in vasion ov the countries across the Alps, had outgeneralled Melas, the Austrian leader. But Napoleon did not arrive in time to relieve the city ov Genoa; for Massena, after one o the most obstinate defences recorded in history, durin which fifteen thous and ov the inhabitants are said to hev died ov famine an' disease, had been forced to surrender to the Austrians an' British on the 5th ov June.

THE SUGAR TARIFF DHL Stand Pat and Progressive Republicans Put One Over on Democrats Cut the Duty on Sugar From Sl.&O to S 1 .CO The I Ml Adopted by the Senate 1 a Cora promise lietwer the Brifttow and Lodge Hill. Washington. D. Q.. July 27. A Republican sugar tariff bill, tbe first purely Republican revision measure of the present Congress, was adopted in the Senate to-day against practi cally the united strength of tbe Dem ocrats. Deserting their allies of tbe last two days, the Republican Pro gressives, by an iron-clad agreement with the Regulars, succeeded in pass ing a Tariff reduction bill which they believe President Taft will sign if it reaches him. The sugar bill was a compromise between the Lodge plan, endorsed by tbe regular Republicans, and the Bristow bill, behind which the Pro gressives lined up. It would cat the present sugar duty of $1.90 to $1.60; would abolish the Dutch standard, under which practlcaly no refined su gar can be imported and would abol ish the 7 1-2 cents "refiners differen tial," an additional duty on refined sugar, which, it is claimed, has ac crued directly to the profit of the sugar refiners. The Republicans played "big poli tics" in the third and last day's fight on tariff measures. The regulars came down from the $1.82 1-2 duty of the Lodge bill, while the Progres sives moved upward from the $1.52 1-2 rate in the original Bristow bill. The compromise, which ih only 7 1-2 cents above the lowest figures named by the Progressives, is considered a victory for Senator Bristow, who has been the most active advocate of su gar tariff reduction on the Republi can side of the Senate. The Democratic free sugar bill passed by the House of Representa tives did not come to a vote in the Senate. The Bristow-Lodge amend ment was first adopted in the commit tee of the whole, by a vote of 37 to 25, Senator Thornton and Foster, of Louisiana, Democrats, voting with the Republicans. The attitude of the Senate Demo crats in finally supporting the Repub lican bill is expected to have influ ence with the Democrats of the House when the amended bill goes back there. The Senate probably will name Senators Penrose and Lodge, Republicans, and Simmons, Demo crat, on the conference committee. The Senate bill would reduce the to look after, neglected and when she duty on Cuban sugar which comes in was questioned as to her reason for under the reciprocity treaty at $1.'34 ' failure to perform certain duties the to about $1.20 a hundred pounds.

For several days this section has been excited over the mysterious ac tions of a nine-year-old girl who is either laboring under the delusion that she is other than herself or ex changed places with another girl, a double ,who, In appearance, so strongly resembles her that her own adopted parents are deceived. The girl in question is Boney Spivey, an orphan, adopted by Mr. and Mrs. W. O. Jackson, who reside three miles from this city, and has not only mys tified her adopted parents, but all who have observed the case, and the story is as follows: On last Thursday, Mr. and Mrs. Jackson came to this city for a few hours and on their return they found who they supposed to be their adopt ed daughter at home, but found some housework, which she was requested by a Mr. Wall and his daughter, who took her to their home in the coun try, where she spent Wednesday just wnat sne ciaims to ue, uiu, n this is true, the other child has com pletely disappeared.
