"v it would w in me every vote in the
lTi.lted States, I cannot iiit a man when
he is down." Mr. Taft grandlioquently
de. l.ires. S"i;i is very well to the by
standers, but how will the followers of
Foraker relish the assumption that
tluir leader is "down?"
Wsiat Mr. Taft .-tanus for today is
of far more interest to the country,
just at present than what ?.ir. P.ryan

to both candidates. "It makes no differ-

A TKlf over Cass and portions of

the farmers desire the repeal of the
present road law and the restoration
of the old law. They seem to be almost
unanimous for the change, and many
petitions will go up to the next legisla
tion for the change.

The old saying, "Never stop to swap

hoJd good with Taft's campaign rnan-

And now the republican money inter
ests are beginning to work that old gag
wherein they promise that factories
and mills will be opened and run and
continue to run if the republican
nominees are elected. The question
that comes to the thinking man is why
they are not now running, and among
those that are running we ask wl-.v thev ;
j are not running full time? What was ;
: tnat we used to hear about running full ;
time and a full dinner pail if McKinley '
were elected, and later if Roosevelt '
were elected? This policy of the
publicans is in effect, ore of political j
complusion. The magnat says to his !
men, "If you do not vote for the man j
I favor, I will throw you out of a job. " j
That's what this all means and amounts j
to. Honest men of all parties should
resent encroachment upon the princi
ples of f ree government and they should
do it in an unmistakeable manner.
These Were Unpopular in 1895.

1H:i the following proositions were i
very unpopular among the Republicans: !

An income tax.
Hostility to injunctions.
Criticism of the courts.
Hostility to railway rate legislation.
Twelve years have passed away and
a wonderful change has over come the
Republicans on the above propositions.
Instead of free silver coinage of "fifty
cent dollars" we have a "wildcat"
paper currency provided for. What is
the difference between a dollar that is
acknowledged to be worth fifty cents
and a paper dollar?
President Roosevelt recommended in
his message to congress an income tax.
President Roosevelt scored the judges
who have handled the injunction suits.
President Roosevelt has criticised the
courts more severely than the the Ie:n-

The following is taken from The
Chronicle, a paper published at An
thony, Kansas, and, as appears in the
heading of the first page, "Devoted to
the Interests of Methodism in the
Southwest Kansas Conference:"
"Billy Sunday has declared for Bryan.
Says he is a republican, but cannot vote
for a man who denies the divinity of
"Billy is not alone is this matter.
There are thousands of conscientions
Christians who are stumped over this
matter. Shall a man, howsoever wise
"he may be as a statesman, be honored
in a Christian nation with its highest
office, who says to the Christian ele
ment of the nation: "Your Christ is
a fake. He claims to be what he is not. "
There are a good many Billies who
will turn Billy down on this ofTice. It
was an unfortunate thing for the great
est orator of our nation, Robert Inger
soil, to be an inlidel. It is unfortunate
for Mr. Taft to hold the view' he does
and aspire to be president of this Christ
"Now if Christ figures not in our
national history if it matters not
whether an infidel or Christian reigns
it matters but little how 'we vote,
but to thousands of consecrated people
it does matter who sits at the helm of
this, the greatest Christian nation in
the world. Mr. Taft may say good
things about our missionaries in foreign
fields. lie cannot do otherwise. The
progress of our Christ's religion in this
lieth century should, convince him that
He is divine. No, Billy Sunday, though
you have been a Republican ail your
life, you are not to be condemned be
cause you will not vote for a man who
will ridicule your Christ. Some of us
who have supported every Republican;
president down from our first vote may
be called religious fanatics and narrow
in our Christian views, but, sir, a man
who denies the divinity of Christ is an
enemy to our Christian fabric. Such
an one would undermine the Christian
faith and leave you on the sandy found
ation. Such an one has no Christian
belief otherwise than to declare that
this Christian nation is thrusting in an

"If the Republican party does not
care for the defense of the Christian
belief, whether a Christian or an infidel
sit in the highest oflicial chair, it is
time for Christian people. Republicans

WHY NOT THADE AT HOME? BLENWQOO GnAi-.Pt
Mr. Taft is now hurried to the front
to do for himself what others have fail
ed to do for him, to stir up some en
thusiam, to set the people to talking of
Taft, a subject that had come danger
ously near being dropped. It is also
stated that. Mr. Roosevelt wid be called
upon to come to the rescue, and that
before the campaign is over he will
take the stump in behalf of "my candi- ' i
date," "my policies" and "my plat
form." The followers ,of th' doughty
Roosevelt substitut3 may well be alarm

years ago. The State Journal and its
malignant satelites began a slanderous
attack upon Mr. Shalienberger w eeks
before he was nominated, because they
recognized that he would be nominated
and that he was very strong with the
people. He was pictured as or.e who
