' "' " : .1 Taft said in his Winona speech that the rayne-Aldrich tariff Waa the best ever, and was damned for it Roosevelt said In a signal art'ete In the Outlook thst,the Payne-Aldrich tarift waa bette? than any of Its predecessors, and was applauded as an authority. Taft prosecuted the trusts and was branded as a fool politician and atool ot the Interests. Rdosevelt exonerated Paul Morton, a self-confessed rebater and violator of the Sherman anti-trust law. and ie Stopped the prosecution' of the harvester trust, and for these things tie was acclaimed as A friend of tne people and their one great savior from 'the designs of the money power. " ' Taft Initiates, secured and consistently defended the Canad'an reciprocity treaty and was repudiated . by . the farmers of the country as a consequence. . Roosevelt at first approved and advo cated the. treaty, praised Taft for secur ing Its passage, then a -little later de nounced It and made It an Issue against the president In hla preconventlon cam paign. For this he was given Increased devdtlon. , ;' Taft carefully examined the records in the Lorimer casei asked several senators to do likewise, urged Roosevelt to help to rid the senate-of Lorimer, and for his pains he was branded as a- supporter of Lorimer before the convention and then rebuked by th senate for endeavoring to have the Illinois senator Unseated: He la considered to have been weakly, pusil lan!mou8ly and ' Ignomtnlously wrofti throughout ' ;:" ' ' ' ' Before examining the record Roosevelt dramatically t-efused to Sit at a banquet with Lorimer, agreed with the president to help unseat him; then denounced the president aa a friend of Lorimer, and when Lorimer was expelled from" the senat glorified In the fallen reputation like art executioner over the dead body .of a vic tim, shouting without rhyme or reason, "I did it. it was my fight, and l Won " For which he is forever Immortalized in the mthds of his Countrymen. Taft secured the corporation tax law, the maximum and minimum tariff pro visions In the Fayne-Aldrlch tariff law, th; tariff board and the publication of campaign contributions lw, and was de riounceS as a friend of privilege and sub servient to the bosses. For seven, yes.rs Roosevelt dodged the tariff, ridiculed Bryan's demand for the publication of . campaign ' Contributions, then later praised the present tariff law aod the tariff board as the Only proper solution of the tariff problem, and is hailed as the enemy of privilege and the one champion of the people s against the bosses. ' .;, .- As secretary of war, Mr. Taft went Into Oklahoma at the request' of Roosevelt and pleaded "with the people to reject a constitution that provided for the in itiative, referendum and the recall ne subversive of representative government. A a president he vetoed the Arizona state, hood bill on the same grounds. For this people say that he betrayed Roosevelt and Roosevelt policies and has changed from what Roosevelt thought he was to some monstrous sort of being. . Roosevelt sent Taft to Oklahoma to de nounce direct,. legislation and said that what he thought about the constitution that contained the provisions of that kind wasn't fit to print. He ridiculed Bryan's slogan of "Let the pe"opl rule." Later he went into Arizona and opposed the recall of judges, and a few days afterward In California approved "the same provision. Then In his Columbus speech' went fur ther and demanded the recall of judicial decisions and adopted Bryan's former plank of "Let the people rule." Now, peo ple say that Roosevelt hasnt changed, but that it Is Taft who- changed and that Is why Roosevelt is fighting him .and why he ought to fight him. ' , Taft . changed a big deficit, in the na tional treasury to a surplus In three years, lifted the postal department out of debt for the first time In years, and se cured the establishment of postal savings banks, ' and 1 branded as an Incapable executive. " Roosevelt plunged the country ihtd debt, th deficit growing larger , each year, failed to improve . the postal service or secure postal savings bank.' in seven years, and Is acclaimed the greatest ex ecutive In the history of the country. Taft preached against war and nego. tinted peace treaties and is. regarded a an Inhuman monster. , Roosevelt has glorified war and op posed th peace-' treaties and is looked upon as a godlike benefactor of humanity Roosevelt built a steam roller and ma nipulated It ruthlessly in 1904 and 1908 to gain his ends, then handed It over to Taft Thereby he Increased the popular respect and admiration accorded hlra. Taft used that Bame Steam roller just as h had been taught by Roosevelt, and he Is branded is a thief and a receiver of stolen goods. . .
