Senator Keveridge in ono of his com
parisons of the two Presidential canl
dates says that Bryan is only an Aaron
and that Taft is the real Moses to lead
us through the wilderness. In that
case Taft will no more rcacli the white
house than Moses readied the promised
land. That is very good Mr. Uryan.
It is u most remarkable tiling that
the democrat campaign book just issuod
contains no criticism, oruonsure what
ever of Mr. Roosevelt or Mr. Roose
velt's administration. This is one of
Uie peculiarities of politics. A still
more remarkable fact is that this wus
purposely done and at the instigation
of Mr Uryan himself. ItuL when one
looks at the logic of the situation, it
will readily bo seen that Mr. Uryan
uoiild not have done otherwise. All
of the policies that Mr. Roosevelt has
acheived popularity in promoting, were
token bodily from Democratic plat
forms and Mr. Hryan's speeches.
There lb not a single one that is ad
vocated b Mr. Roosevelt of any impor
tance but what was taken from Mr
Factory Workers Crltlclim of Louisa
M. Alcott'a Grot Story.
In a conversation about books which
the author of "The Long Day" had
with two of her workmates at a box
factory, she spoke enthusiastically
of "Little Women," and told them how
she had read It four times, and that
she meant to read It again some day.
"Little Women" was unknown to
body ever wanting to read a
book more than once, and they
pressed her to repeat the story for
them. This she did with great accu
racy of statement, and with genuine
pleasure to herself at belag given an
opportunity to introduce anybody to
Meg and Jo and all the rest of that
delightful March family.
When she finished, Phoebe stopped
work and Mrs. Smith looked up from
her labol-pasting, saying: "Why, that's
no story at all."
"Why, no," echoed Phoebe, "that's
no story that's just everyday hap
penings. I don't seo what's the use
putting things like that In books. I'll
bet any money that lady what wrote
It knew all them boys and girls. They
just sound like real, live people; and
when you was tolling about them I
could see them as plaln,.as plain could

"But I suppose farmer folks likes
them kind of stories," Phoebe gener
ously suggested. "They ain't used to
the same styles of anything that us
city folks aro." Youth's Companion.
"Some novelists don't know what
thoy'ro talking about. Hero'B one who
speaks of a girl's 'raven hair.' "
"What's wrong with it?"
"All wrong. Ravens don't wear
hair; they wear feathers!" Stray
Republicans Repudiate Roosevelt.
However, the fact lias been clearly
established that the Republican party
is running away from Mr. Roosevelt's
policies. This is shown to some extent
by the nomination of Mr .lames S.
Sherman as the running mate of Mr.
Taft Mr Sherman is interested in
dozens of trusts and lias been a collect
or of campaign funds for the Republi
can party for many years. This only
goes to show that the Republican p'irty
intends to "stand by the trusis" and
that if they aro successful, the tariff
will hi adjusted in the interest of the
trusts Instead of the interest of the
people. The treasurer of the Republi
can National Committee has succeeded
in evading the law against corporation
contributions to campaign expenses
He ha9 discovered thiU while the cor
poration') cannot contribute to the Re
publican campaign fund, there is noth
ing to pTevcnt the secretary or any of
the menibtu-s of the board ofdircctors
of these great concerns from contribut
ing. As there is-absolutely no enthus
iasm in the Republican campaign what
ever this year, the Republicans are
proceeding to squeeze all the money
they can out of' corporations, such as
the beef trust, the steel trust, the har
vester trust, tlie oil trust and so on, so

That the Taft managers are scared, badly scared, is very evident
The signs are numerous as the sands on the seashore.
The scare has struck national headquarters. It has struck Wall
street. It has struck the trusts and the big railroad manipulators. It
has struck Taft himself. It has even struck Oyster Bay.
And there is a scurrying in hot haste. There is a desperate, frantic
effort, all along the line, to beat back the fast-rising tide of Bryan senti-
, , them, but their curiosity waa roused
rresiaent Koosevelt is dragooned Into writing a "personal letter" over the unheard-of thing of any
more than three columns long, ostensibly to some unknown individuil
in Montana, but really to the newspapers and the republican voters, in
which he makes a pathetic appeal for Taft as a "just-as-good" candi
date. He can give no other assurance than his "personal faith" in the
nominee. But Mr. Roosevelt, as a judge of men, has not been a glit
tering success. He has had "faith" in Paul Morton, and Cortelyou, and
"my dear Harnman," and Elihu Root. Only two years ago he wrote a
glowing ecomium of Joe Cannon, which was distributed through the
press exactly as the Taft indorsement is now broadcasted. Is Mr.
Roosevelt's faith in Taft any better founded than was his faith in Joe
Mr. Taft himself, throwing "dignity" to the winds, is to follow the
long-ridiculed example of Bryan, and take the stump in person; throw
ing his huge body, as it were, into the breach, as a last frantic resort to
prevent the innundation.
Government officials are impressed into the service to make long
and ponderous attacks on the bank guarantee system. Other govern
ment officials, like Powderly,. arc forced irrta,the"ca'mrraign in the' effort
to "hold the labor vote," and still others, who are negroes, are sent
into the field to hold the negro vote.
Medill McCormick, publisher of the Chicago Tribune, and one of
the wealthiest m-n west of the Alleghcnies, goes to New York to warn
the financial interests that there is "grave danger" of Bryan's election.
"The busines men," he said, "do not seem to be taking the proper in
terest in the campaign." Then he went on to say:
For a time it seemed as if Mr. Taft would be elected in a walk. Re
cently, however, a great change seems to have come over the national
situation To my mind there is considerable dauger of Mr. Hryan's elec
tion. The democrats are making an aggresssive, harmonious campaign.
They have made great strides in Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. Unless the
business men of the country get together, and the general apathy toward
the republican national ticket is shaken off, the .election of Taft and
Sherman is going to be a herculean task.
On the same day Jim Hill came to New York. The purpose of his
visit is told plainly in a news article in the New York Herald of last
Saturday '''lie Herald said:
James J. Hill, chief factor in the (J rent Northern and Northern Pacific
systems, and representative railroad man of tlie northwest, has come here
from St. Paul to warn his financial associates in Wall street that the pre
vailing campaign inathy on behalf of William II. Taft must irive wav to
speedy action owing to the remarkable strength of William J. Uryan in
the west. Mr. Hill refused to be interviewed, on the subject yesterday,
saying he could not commit himself to political views, but lie spent the
day in seeing his friends in the First National bank, J. P. Morgan's otlice.
the Uhu.se National and other banking institutions, where lie did not hesi
tate to express in emphatic terms the belief that it was highly necessary
that more energy be displayed on behalf of Mr. Taft if tlie Tatter's friends
desired ills election. According to those with whom Mr. Hill discussed tlie
subject, Mr. Uryan is stronger in tlie agricultural sections of tlie west
than he has ever been before.
This is the sure sign that "ihe interests" are gingering up iii earn
est in Tuft's behalf. When JintHiill, l'icrpont Moigan and the bank
the system controls get tog ther and send up the cty of alarm it tik s
no prophet or son of a prophet to know what it means.
When the steel trust gave 10,000 employes a holiday fur ;he open
ing of the Taft campaign in Ohio, uniformed them and split them to
march in a Taft parade, at an expense to the trust of not less than
$25,000 for this one demonstration, it is easy to see what it means.

The Taft managers are frightened. And tiny are frightened with
good teason. The people are in earnest that "the people shall rule."
They have decided that "the interests" have ruled long enough through
Joe Cannon, Jim Sherman, John Dalzell, Sereno Payne, senators like
Aldrich and Hopkins and Crane, and the entire organization of the re
v When they spe the highest representatives of "the interests" banded
together for Taft and Sherman, beating the tom-tom for them, sending
their conscripts to march for them, summoning "business" to rally and
give down lavishly for their campaign when the people see all this,
they can see yet a little more and a little farther. They can see what it
means for it is as easy as seeing through a stone wall with a great bole
What what wonder if Brvan has "remarkable strength in the west,"
as Tim Ilillsajs he has?
What wonder if he has "remarkable strength" in every other state
where the people are tired of being ridden to poverty and panics by "the

MUST ATTEMPT TO FIND O.VN- !.
Only Thing to Do When On Plrka
Up Lost Property.
When one is on the public thorough
fare or In the street car or train or
boat and picks up an object that la
valuable, Is It his?
True, he may And something which
Is too small and triflag to warraat
searching to find the owner, such aa a
handkerchief, a pair of gloves, etc.
But when he finds something of value,
It Is not his until he baa done every
thing In his power to find the owner.
The street railways and trains arc
so systematized to-day that If, whea
one finds an object of value, he return
It to the company's representative, It
Is almost sure to catch up with Its
owner. Every person of Intelligence
knows that the first place to inquire
for It Is at the lost and found depart
ment. When, however, one Is on the Btreet
and finds something which, if ho lost
It himself, he would very much Ilka
to have returned, there are the col
umns of a newspaper In which to ad
vertise. If he falls to find the owner alter
this then ho can rightfully call It his
own and have a cloar conscience, but
If he avoids looking over the loat and
found columns and falls to do his part
toward finding the owner he is almost
as dishonest .as lf-4ie took the -good!.
