Colonel Roosevelt, in a speech at
Canton, O., renewed his attack upon
President Taft and the men prominent
in directing the president's campaign
for renomination. He referred to
Senator Lorimer of Illinois as "Mr.
Taft's lieutenant." He strongly criti

Won't Repeat the Mistake.
Senator Gamble is the chair
man of the senate committee on
appropriations, lie is a member
of the comnyttee on buildings and
grounds, on privileges and elec
tions and on public lands. He lias
served in the senate long enough
to have Avon some high places
on committees and to be a most
useful and effective senator. A
man of equal.ability with Senator
Gamble would not be able for
years to get himself in a position.
to do half as much for South
Dakota as the senior senator can
do. South Dakota, the last time,
made a very poor trade, and lost
heavily in prestige in the upper
house. It is not at all likely that
the voters will repeat this mistake
in the coming primaries. It would
be odd if a senator who had vo
ted in senate on all sorts of
questions for twelve years had al
ways vote'd to the pleasing of
everybody. No one could expect
this but the voters will mea
sure a TO,an efficiency by a care
ful study of his whole career
and when this is done fgr Senatoi
Gamble, it is certain to result in
safely landing him the re-nomina
tion and re-election.— Sioux Fa lb
