SHOWS WILSON'S STRENGTH of tho agn and by making platltudlt out promises to gather the army of discontented to his standard and aug ment this strength by fooling others who have udmlred his wonderfully vig orous personality, to again ride Into power, only to be dislodged by revolution. Roosevelt Presume on Ignorance of His Hearers and Readers When He 8aya Bosses and Representatives of Privilege Are Flocking to Demo crats. I Colouol Roosevelt, with that aggress ive auducity so strongly characteris tic of hla nature, In the effort he Is making to stampede progressive Re publicans who are disposed to stay with the regular organization and then nndor the cracking noise of his own whip to corral them in the liull Moose pen. La giving testimony of the growing Btrungth of the Democratic nominee. For instance. In his speech deliv ered before the state Progressive con vention at Dea Moines, he is quoted as saying that he found everywhere among reactionary Republicans a grow ing purpose to support Woodrow Wil son, on the theory that President Taft was beaten already, and that the only hope of preserving the old parties was to support the Democratic ticket and defeat the Progressives. He then add ed: "Where Mr. Wilson is getting support of that type, we have the right to ask Independent Democrats who be , Ueve In tho principles for which Democracy nominally stands, to come with us. I ask every Democrat who really believes In the right of the peo ple to rule to come with us, for every representative of privileges, every boss Is going to hl3 side." Of course, In making this state ment, Colonel Roosevelt was presum ing upon the Ignorance of those who might hear or read his utterances, for, as CoL Henry Watterson has well said of him, "Intelligent persons who chance to bo led, by Interest or by curiosity, to attend Roosevelt orations will feel that their intelligence has been Insulted, or that the orator should be attended by a keeper." True, Republicans as well as' non-partisan voters, are flocking to the support of Governor Wilson, but none of those Republicans are reactionaries or stand patters, as Colonel Roosevelt well knows. He Is thrusting forward a man of straw to frighten Progressive Republicans away from tho support of President Taft Especially auda cious is his assertion that "every rep resentative of privilege, every boss is going to his (Wilson's) side," when the fact has been Indisputably estab lished that the two biggest and bra zenest representatives of special priv ilege in the world, the steel trust and the harvester trust, are the inspira tion and chief support of tho new party movement. Without tho influ ence of these two concerns in his be half, Teddy would hardly be known in the running. The truth Is, Colonel Roosevelt Is both an opportunist and a Jesuit In politics. He seizes upon the pres ent time, when discontent Is general n the land over the effect of policies for which he himself Is partly respon sible, as the opportune moment, with the assistance of the dominant trusts T. R. and the South. Having failed to abate a crying polit ical nuisance while he had the power to do so, few thoughtful persons are disposed to take as more than a de magogic appeal Mr. Roosevelt's pre .ent protestatloua of regret over con- tiitlons which he Indorsed with perfect rtltude bo long as ne was a Jnsplcuous beneficiary of them. ,werful aa Is the bid he has iade for the eouthern vote, there Is f 'men a widespread distrust In this Bee s' tlon of tho country of the stability and PROTECTION; HOW IT WORKS Rhode Island, a Tariff-Made State, as Described By Miss Ida M. Tarbell. "The doctrine of protection is worth looking at as It works," declared Gov ernor Wilson at Easton, Pa., the other day. He added, In characteristic phrase: "I haven't any reverence for any economic doctrine whatever except m it works." How does the Aldrlch doctrine of "protection" work? Ida M. Tarbell Is admittedly one of the foremost tariff experts who have taken sides with the people In the tariff controversy. She is a sober, thoughtful student and writer, whose conclusions, though often annoying to some highly-placed gentlemen, have almost Invariably been found correct. here is what Miss Tarbell says of that "tariff-made state," Rhode Island: "This, then, Is high protection's most perfect work a state of half million people, turning out an annual product worth $187,000,000; the lab orers In the chief Industry underpaid, unstable, and bent with disease; the average employers rich, self-satisfied, and as Indifferent to social obligation as so many robber barons. It Is an industrial oligarchy made by a na tion's benficence, under the mistaken notion that it was working out a labor's paradise. . . . It Is feudalism, and not even benevolent feudalism." No one can question the juBtlce of Governor Wilson's statement, that economic doctrines are to be judged by their works. lly their fruits ye shall know them, Tho fruits of the Aldrlch tariff are bloated fortunes, corrupted politics, enhanced cost of living. For All the Mischief Wrought by Saloon Country People Must Foot Heaviest Portion. The great 'argument used for licens ing the saloon Is that a revenue Is thus secured to lessen taxation. It Is said, "License money will build side walks, support schools, and do muny other things which otherwise would have to be paid for directly out of the pockets of the tax payers." License money does not decrease your taxes one cent; but the saloons do increase your taxes enormously. Vou are not taxed tobuild sidewalks, llsht the streets, or to do any of the things It Is claimed license money does for the town. Hut you are taxed, and that rlKht heavily, to pay the county's bills for courts. Jails, poor houses, care of the Insane, and things like that. The land you own pays the bulk of the county taxes. The poor-house and farm are Just outside the city limits and you feel flattered when the state authorities report It the best institution of the kind In the state. Well, you may, for you arc back of that Institution, so far as money goes; for the taxes you pay, In large measure, sustain It. lint Its physician, himself a drlnklng-man. not a temperance fanatic, reports again and again, to your supervisors that at least thren fourths of Its in mates come there through the drink ing habit, either in themselves or oth ers. The case In a nutshell Is (Ms: If there Is any good coming from license which we deny the city gets It; while for all the mischief the saloons work, the farmers foot the heaviest part of the bills. Infinitely beyond any money consld eratlon are the danger-pits that the li censed raluons of the town dig for the unwary feet of your boys. From lack of familiarity with the enticements of the saloon, farmer boys are mora 11 able than city boys, to fall victims to Its snares. The Wisconsin Progressives. If the Progressive Republicans ol Wisconsin are to maintain the Integ rity and efficiency of their movement, they will not only continue to follow Senator La Follette In utter disregard of any false god, but they will vote, as the senator has frequently voted, for ptinciple Irrespective of artificial party lines. The hope of the Progressive Repub lican cause lies In the stanch, uncom Fromlslng leadership of men like Sen ator La Follette, of men w'ho for the mere sake of gaining office will neither change principles as they would a suit c.f clothes, nor will profess one thing when they really believe an other. In the coming campaign the fight Is one of principle. Principles are unreal. The fight is not between this pnrty and -that party; It is between Tories and Progressives regardless of party. Among the presidential candi dates there Is only one man who has shown by deed as well as by word that Le Is a thorough-going Progressive, with ability to do things. That man Is Woodrow Wilson. He deserves the support of every voter, Republican, Democrat or independent, who ' lievrs in Interested public servlo and desires the general welfare. Milwau kee joarKRl.

LIQUOR CLOUDS ONE'S BRAIN "Temperate" Use of Intoxicants Is Apt to Be Productive of Queer Fan cies and Fallacies. It Is a well known fact that when alcohol enters the body, one of the first organs to feel Its influence Is the organ of the mind, the brain. The per ceptlve faculty is beclouded, the rea son dethroned, and the moderate drl ker never knows the exact moment when the sceptre passes Into the hand of the arch-deceiver. In fact, such Is the Illusive nature of strong d'lnk that the drinker often Imagines that "proper and legitimate" use of the same stimulates and sharpers the In tellect. We find among thi friends and supporters of the liquir trafflo very few total abstainers. The mod erate drinker, on the other hand. Is found characterizing liquor rs a neces sary evil and apologizing for the sa loon as the poor man's c'ub, which goes to prove that even a "temperate" use of Intoxicants is apt (o be pro ductive of queer fancies and danger ous fallacies In the mind of v even a good lawyer, an able editor or an eml nent clergyman.

L to Although the iceman brings A lump exceedingly small, You don't complain, for if you do lie may not come at all you Thoroughly Up-to-Oat. "Halloa!" Jelllson cried, as he en countered his acquaintance, llarwood. In the street. "Thought you were get ting married today. Postponed?" "Altogether," said llarwood, firmly. "Not even engaged now, then?" pur sued JelllFon. "No. The lady I was to have mar ried was too modsrn too up-to-date for me." "Up-to-date!" The excifne astonish ed Jelllson. "How on earth" "Wiyte her last Monday, saying I was ccming to see her on Wednesday. You see, although we'd been engaged for some time, I never formally pro posed, and she seemed to want It. So I went on Wednesday Just to satisfy her whim, as I thought. Got there and found she had sold the rights of photographing me at the moment of proposing to a cinematograph com pany. . "That settled It!" Tit Bits. Wanted a Bite. Oh, yea; it was raining had been all day. Hut they didn't mind that bo much; you see, they were fishermen. All the same, they were trudging home, with weary steps and very weary-looking faces. Their baskets were empty, and to be candid, they were in a very bad temper. As they entered the little village a largo dog ran at one of the party. The dog had a ferocious look, and was barking furiously. But the fisher man did not take much alarm at the animal. He Just kicked it away care lessly. "Aren't you afraid he'll go for you?" Inquired another of the party, somewhat anxiously. The one who had kicked at the dog looked at his companion in a sorrow ful manner. "I only wish he would!" he replied. "I'd chance almost anything to be able to go home and say I'd had a bite!" The Evil of the Saloon. An American social reform Journal has this to say of the evil of the li censed liquor traffic: "It Is not chiefly that the saloon is a political evil, not chiefly that drunk enness is abhorrent, not chiefly that it interferes with work and business, not altogether, that it makes so much misery for so many, but that at last we are seeing that the saloon and In temperance are the enemies of souls that have Infinite worth and the de stroyers of bodies that have cost such I care. We are at last seeing how ut I terly-illogical, even Imbecile, It Is to spend thousands of dollars on schools and churches to produce fin souls and thousands of dollars of stoitanr cit ies and streets and houses and safe guards to grow a healthy young man, and even to spend thousands more to restore criminals to manhood, and then to allow' on any corner an lnstl. tutlon which destroys both body and soul." Surely This Was Not All The jteol Trust's contribution of $10,000 to the Roosevelt campaign of Ight years ago was not made till Sep tember 17. We cannot believe that so huge a corporation got off so cheaply fta that; that the Steel Trust gave nothing till that late date In the cam paign, or that the fast friendship and many favors of Theodore Roosevelt were secured by so trifling a rontribu ion to his presidential campaign. It most be that the Steel corporation had made its regular contribution Azrlier la tfce eummer.. aai that tho Of Interest to Farmers.

Wall Street Journal. $10,000 was a supplementary donation, made when the prospects of Mr. Roope velt were so extremely dark that he sent for Harrlman and appealed to hlra to raise money, and when Bliss was trying to get an additional $150, 000 from th Standard Oil aftfcr $125, 000 had been given earlier !ln the campaign.

But we should remember that the doing of the will of God Is always the noblest, holiest thing we can do any hour, however hard it may be for us.
