WHOLE NO. n:ia B "OT F 1 A 1 1 A . 1-L PING BANNER HIS ELECTION . IS IMPOSSIBLE For State Senator Roosevelt Cannot Get Enough Republican Votes To As sure Him Victory WILSON MAY WIN Roosevelt Must Have Eight Out Of Every Ten Republican Votes To Be Elected In 1JWS the popular vote for Bryan was 6, 109,104, and that for Tuft, 7,078, 908. Assuming that the relative strength of the parties in this election will remain the same, Mr. Roosevelt would have to get the vote of eight out of every ten Republicans in the nation in order to be elected. Does any one believe he can do this? It will not do to answer that he will get a large pro portion of the Democratic vote, for every one knows that is not true. The information coming in to national head quarters is that for every Democratic vote going to Roosevelt four or live will go to Taft. Mr. Roosevelt will have to depend upon the votes of those who were ltepublicans in 1908, and he most have practically all of them in order to stand any show of election. Isn't it perfectly apparent that he cannot get them? In Kansas, for example, where Ary an's vote was KM, 109 and Taft's 197, in 1908, Mr. Roosevelt must have 81 8-10 per cent, of the Republican vote in order to carry the state. In Illinois Roosevelt must get seven out of every ten Republicans, with the same percent age in Iowa, North Dakota and New York. In Missouri he would have to have nine out of every ten. In i'enn slyvania and Oregon six out of every ten Republicans must vote for Roose velt in order for him to carry the state, "is there a human being who believes that IhU proportion of Republicans in each state will vote for Roosevelt? But, while it is mathematically im possible for Roosevelt to be elected, it is iossible, unfortunately, for Wilson to win, because of Republican votes cast for Roosevelt. In the country at large, it would require but sixteen Republican voles out of every hundred to be cast for I loose veil to give Wilson a jmpular majority. It follows, therefore, that the only way to defeat Wilson in the nation is to vote for Taft. The only way to keep Wilson from carrying any slate, and thus contributing materially to his election, is to vote for Taft. A vote for Roosevelt helps Wilson; it cannot by any possibility elect Roosevelt. Hkrhekt E. Powell Herbert E.

Alden Smith Monday Night Dis cuss Political Issues MEETING ENTHUSIASTIC Argues For Continuance Of Repub lican Policies And Principles And Protection Of American Industries : X I ' ' - " A .s wim.iam Alden smith There was an imtnesne crowd asem- bled in the Ojiera House Monday night, to attend the republican meeting ad dressed by Senator, Wm. Alden Smith. Every scat was taken and a large num ber of men stood in the roar through the.enti re meeting so eager were li?y to listen to his splendid speech. Before the meeting an informal re ception was held in the ollice of Hotel Belding and very'many of the Senators friend gave him a cordial greeting. Fleck's Cornet Band entertained with music while the people were gathering. On the rostrum with the chairman of the meeting, II. 11. Low ery, of Ionia and Senator Smith were some of the candidates on the County ticket and others of the city. In his introduction of the Senator Mr. Lowery urged voters the necessity of electing republican candidates for the legislature in order that Senator Smith should retain his seat in the Senate. Mr. Smith was loudly applauded when he arose to speak and he held the large audience wieh intense interest for an hour an a half. He referred to several very imiortant questions involved in the campaign in a dignified way and spoke vigorously but without acrimony or bitterness among other things he said: 'I have no patience with the man, and I do not care who he is, who tries to array class against class, who tries to tell the workingman that he is weigh ed down by u necessary burden, who calls the successful man a robber, a grafter and untruthful. I do not think such epithets should lx jiermitted in any campaign." In speaking of the Coicago Conven tion and the charges made of trickery he paid: 'Not a candidate has been nominated for the presidency in the last fifty years whose nomination has not been chal lenged. The friends of William H. Seward charged that Lincoln stole the nomination. In 18 Tom Reed told me irsonally that Mark Ilanna had bought the nomination for William McKinly. Blaine charged that Har rison had secured his nomination through influencing the southern vote and it has been so in every instance down to date. " 'President Taft has Uen a wise, faithful, patient president. He has borne the burden of the government and the burden of criticism much of which is unjust with patience. He is a poor iolitician. Had he leen a better politician he would doubtless have been subjected to less criticism. '1 say to you the United States has been better handled in the last sixteen years than ever before, and I say toyou to-night that it never was better han dled than in the last three years under the administration of President Taft. It is not a time now when you should consider a fancied grievance. It is not a time to consider your personal pre ference as to men." On the tarifT question he spoke at length. He declared that fifty-three per cent of the goods brought into this country come in free, and that the other forty-seven per cent are taxed. He stated thai the goverment is reach ing a danger line on the tariff proposi tion. 'No surgeon will go beyond the dan ger line with his knife," said Senator Smith, "and we, as citizens of the United States, and as voters, cannot afl'ord to go beyond the danger line, and in closing appealed to the voters to stand by the olicy of protection which had made our country the most proserous of any on the globe." Regarding reciprocity he said both Roosevelt and Taft were strong advo cates of reciprocity with Canada and he, as everybody knows, was strongly opposed to it. Mrs. Eddy's Will The full t)ench of the Massachusetts Supreme Court decides that the will of Rev. Mary Raker Eddy has created a valid public trust which can be ad ministered by a trustee appointed by the court. The decision also declares that the heirs cannot inherit Mrs. Eddv,s property. The court holds that the Massachu setts statuteimiting the amount as a bequest to a religious body applies in the present instance as against the administration of this trust by the Directors of the Christian Science Church' but that a valid trust having been created it can be administered in accordance with Mrs. Eddy,s wishes by another trustee. This finding a fleets only the iortion of Mrs. Eddy,s estate in Massachusetts consisting of two projierties estimated at fl-Vi.OOO in value. sThc most of4Mrs. Eddy,s estate is in New Hampshire and the Supreme Court of that state last spring decided that the trust creat ed by Mrs. Eddy, by which her fortune was to be used" for the puriwse of more efl'ectually promoting and extending the religion of christian Science as taught by me," was valid.
