T. Coming into the ctronghold of opposition, ex-President Theodore Roosevelt boldy challenged the opponents of his political doctrines to come out in the open and fight it they dared. He prophetically said that If they did they would be beaten. "The new nationalism," he stated. "means nothing but in application to new conditions of certain old and fun damental morali'les. It means an in vitation to meet the new problems of the present day in precisely the spirit in which Lincoln and the men of his day met their new problems." The ex-president also gave warm commendation to President Taft as a public officiaj and expressed his ap proval of several of the accomplish ments of the Taft administration. Col onel Roosevelt did not indorse the ad ministration as a whole. What he did have to say, however, placed him on record for the first tiuie in regard to many more of the important features of It, breaking the silence which he had maintained rteadfastly on the bud Ject, except for his few brief refer ences to his successor made when he was on his w estern trip. He also defended his recent criti cisms of two decisions ot the Unltet' States Supreme Court, made in t speech In Denver, Colo., and quoted the words of William H. Taft, wrltter. when he .was a Judge, to support his contention that the people have tn right to criticise decisions of the court Trouble la Store For Horsethieves Robbers Continue DepredatiOna in Nofth Country Diphtheria Scare Over.

COAST DEFENSE IS WEAK SAYS EVANS Portland Rear Admiral Robley D. Evans, "Fighting Bob," as he is more familiarly known, who is making a tour of the Pacific Coast, in an inter view stated that "The Pacific Coast is without defense and would be at the mercy of an enemy in the event of an attack.

We have none in the Pa cHic ocean and our western coast is defenseless." Rear Admiral Evans is In better health than he has been for some time.
