Tribune's explanation of ftie colonel's
failure to visit this city: 'The ac
cepted reason for the failure of local
republicans to invite Roosevelt here
is that persons who direct the desti
nies of the republican party in Utah
are basking in tho favor of President
Taft. They fear Roosevelt may loom
large as a presidential candidate, and
they wish to keep Utah in line for

BRA.WN AND BRAIN
Ollie James, democratic represen
tative in congress from Kentucky,. isv
big of brawn and big of br.ain. He,j
is as big politically, too, as he is big
physically. He is a living example of
the fact that there are giants in these
days as well as in "those days."
From tip to tip he measures six feet
six inches and he weighs 310 pounds.
His brow extends from his evpa n
the collar button on tho back of hia
neck, for his head is as ald as a
boiled egg, and he can scarce re
member the time when hair grew
upon his dome, which shines like a
polished billiard ball. He has ono
pronounced love and one equally pro
nounced hatred. The one is for
horses and the other is for republi
cans, not personally, but politically.
He will go miles to see and beat a
horse race, and twice as far to meet
and beat a republican. In Kentucky,
especially, these are qualities which
make -for popularity, but Ollie's
popularity is not confined alone to his
native state. His almost child-liko
simplicity, unvarying good humor,
and general character make friends
for him everywhere. Personally, he
knows no enemies, politically he
knows no friends who do not sub
scribe to the tenets of true demo
cratic faith. In short, Ollie James
is a worthy successor of the long
line Of distinguished dnmnn.rnta wlio
have come to congress to serve their
state and the nation.
He stands like some great light
house, stalwart, firm and loyal among
the storms that sweep the politics of
his country. Not alone has he the
courage of his convictions, but he
has the force of character to forge
them into activity, and the intellect
to guido them into operating causes.
Ho is a fine type of the democratic
politician. National Monthly.
