it was doing and accepted all te
sponslblllty both for what It did and
what it did not do.
It Is no attack upon the judges to
say that they are men with a fair
average quality of human nature; that
they are subject to the prejudices and
passions of men. They cannot divest
themselves of their humanity by put
ting on the Judicial ermine any more
than they can the king divest himself
of his by putting on the crown.
Despotic power under the ermine id
as dangerous as despotic power under
the crown. To stay its progress some
remedy must be had, and we there
fore appealed to the republican con
vention at Chicago and were given
the same answer in still more insult
ing language, if that were possible.
We asked for bread, and they showed
us a whip, and in order to be certain
that the whip will be effectually used
the republican party nominated as its
standard bearer, Mr. William H. Taft,
the originator and specific champion
of discretionary government; that is,
government by, injunction. In pass
ing I may say that his nomination,
under the circumstances, was logical.
It would have been impossible for the
parly to find a more effective repre
sentative of its policy.
Labor's representatives then went to
the democratic party. That party
made labor's contention its own. It
pledged Its candidates for every office
to those remedies which labor had
already submitted to congress. The
standard bearer of . the democratic
party, Mr. William J. Bryan, entered
fully into the essence of this struggle
and declared that the real issue in
this campaign is: "Shall the people
rule?" ' ,
The republican party and its can
didate stand for upholding and furth
er extending into our country a des
potic government vested in the ju
diciary. The democratic party and its can
didate stand for government by law
vested In the people. '
As an American citizen, in view of
these facts, I have no choice I have
only duty. Duty to preserve with my
voice,' pen and ballot, that form of
government, for the preservation of
which Lincoln said: "Men died at
Human freedom and equity of all
men before the law is the result of
the struggle of the ages, and our ho
liest inheritance. This we must re
gain; this we must extend, so that it
shall be a living, character-making,,
conduct-governing principle in Ameri
can life. (
Labor has been and will be accused
of partisanship, but in performing a
solemn duty at this time in support
of a political party labor does not be
come partisan to a political party, but
partisan to a principle.
As the campaign progresses, mis
representations of all conceivable kind
will come thick and fast. In answer
to them all, I have but to say that
men who have given a whole life's
energy to the great cause of labor and
who, in all the years gone by, have
been found faithful, honest and sin
cere are not likely to change their
character all of a sudden. If we were
desirous of either office or other emol
uments they could have been obtained
with greater ease from the party in
I have said before, and now say
again, that there is no political office
in the gift of the American people,
elective or appointive, that I would,
under any circumstances, accept. Not
that such offices be lightly put arside
by an American citizen, but that I be
'leve I can do more "for the ideas that
I cherish and the work in which I am
engaged, either as an official or as a
member in the rank and file of the
labor movement, and the threats of
politicians to "burn brush fires" be
hind me ' wherever I may go;
to "create" rebellion In the labor
movement against me and bring about
my defeat for the presidency of the
federation, can have no influence upon
my mind and cannot alter my course.
As workers and citizens we have our
franchise; as citizens we must use it
to protect and extend equality of all
men before the law and secure indi
vidual liberty for all men.
' And now, fellow workers and friends
of human liberty, labor calls upon you
to be true to yourselves and to each
other; to stand faithfully by our

for your clothes. The Suits and Overcoats we sell for $12.85
cost you $15 to $18 in the high rent district. Those we sell

we sell for $18 and $20 cost you $25 and $30 at the other

FLIM-FLAMMING RAILROAD MEN
Deceitful Pamphlet Being Circulated
by Republican National Com
A treacherous and underhand at
tempt to hoodwink railroad men by
means of labor fakirs in the employ
of the republican national committee
has been discovered in Chicago.
A million copies of a pamphlet
which has no mark of Its origin in the
secret "railroad men's bureau" main
tained at republican headquarters, 1
Madison avenue. New York, are being
distributed among the railway em
ployes of the country.
The pamphlet bears a union label
and seems to emanate from a worthy
and philanthropic member of the
Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen A.
B. Carhart of Jersey City. The real
author or supervising intellect is that
stalwart friend of labor, Ben E. Cha
pin, editor of "The Railroad Eriiploye,"
of Newark, N. J., who is managing the
railroad men's bureau" for the re
publican national committee.
This Interesting document has on
its cover a picture of a train brought
to a stop by a red .flag and semaphore
signal set at danger because a bould
er marked "government ownership"
has rolled on tne track. Detroit Un
JOKE ON TAFT.
Prosperity Speech in Front of Steel
Mill That Was Shut Down.
Mr. Taft spoke from a platform in
the steel mill yard at Mingo Junction
in Ohio. ' Thfr steel mill was "closed.
All the mills there are closed. Mr
Taft made a prosperity speech. When
he climbed again on the rear platform
cf his car some one remarked in his
hearing that all the mills were closed.
Taft turned a startled face to General
k'I didn't know that," he said. "Why
didn't you tell me?"
The general patted him on the "arm
in a soothing way and said: "It is
much better that you didn't. You
made just the sort of speech that was
Mr. Taft retorted sharply: "In the
future I want all the information. I
had something to say to these people
If they are out of work."
He seems to have speeches for all
occasions, affd as they are all Tead

highest regard for their durability. If you are in the market
for. either a range or heating stove it will certainly be to your
interest to call and see this line in its entirety. After this in

assessing the agency for this very foremost line of stoves.
