Seme of the nnn partisan ar
gument of the democratic press
is frantic , some is pleading1 , some
ia foolish , but there is one ele
ment it all has in common. That
in order to be non-partisan you
must vote for democrats Tha' '
is the burden of their songSt
If the democrats really want a
non-partisan judiciary they can
show their sincerity by voting
for the three candidates for su
preme judge , whose names ap
pear * t the head of the repttbli
can ticket. Judge Barnes , Sedg
wick and Fawcctt have all been
tried on the supreme bench am
their ability and sincerity is un
questioned. Syracuse Journal.
No trival pretext ought to in
duce republican forces to become
divided in the present campaign
A solid party , bent on the elec
tion of the etitire ticket , wil
strengthen the organisation fo
future campaigns. No othe
course would benefit any one ex
cept democratic candidates
whosa victory would only helj
themselves and their party.
If W. E. Edwards , who i
ohargcd with cattle stealing , ha
jumped his bond and gone to
Canada as is reported no one can
be blamed but Judge Humphrey
The law provides that when a
man is released on bond pending
trial the judge shall require such
security for his appearance on
the day set for trial as will in
sure his appearance. Consider
ing the strength of the evidence
against him and the penalty a
man must pay when convicted o
cattle stealing the bond of $250
was too small to insure his stay
ing here for trial. County At
torney Gadd felt this and made
application for an increase to
$500 on August 21st. When
Judge Humphrey refused this
application he shouldered
all ot the blame fo
Edwards failure to appear at the
last term of court.
There has been a iecling fo
some time among many of the
well meaning law abiding citi
zcns in this county that 'the la\\
breakers have not been as sevcrly
dealt with as they should be , A
graat many people were disap
pointed at the result of the Car
land trial and not a small man
ber have been inclined to criti-j
cise in other casca. The Willard
case is scheduled to come up
vheu district court meets again
n October. This case hag been
.ragging along now for over 'u
year and when it comes up in
October it should como to Trial.
Heal Sticks to II.
Brother Heal still insists that a
Republican county board will
n.inn go the county belter and
norc economically than the Kus-
onista are managing it. Ivast
week he printed the following :
"That taxes were lower in the
county and state in 1808 than
now is due largely to a set of of-
icers having control who believ
ed in and practiced economy. "
Everyone knows that the county
) oard manages the finances ot
.he count ) ' , so it must be that he
wants the county board changed
ind we Hepublicans certainly
ought to be willing to help him
PRESS COMMENT ON
President Taft's Winona speech
Mirows light on the tariff situ
ation with respect to wool and
woolen goods and to insurgency.
The rates of the law are too high ,
he said , because it was found
early in the fight that the wool
and woolen manufacturing in
terests in the republican party
and he might truthfully have in
cluded the democratic party
were so strong that any attempt
to change the Uingley rate would
result in the defeat of the bill.
How result in the defeat of the
bill ? Only by the turning in
surgent of the woolen senators ,
chief of whom is the senate lead
er , Mr. Aldrich. This then was
the situation : Sevan senators
led by LaFollelte , saying , "Make
this schedule right or we vote
against it , " another group , Al
drich at hcaM , saying , "Give us
our graft in this schedule or we
bolt. " Surely the first group are
not the less patriotic or the less
loyal to their party in that the
second group was saved , by its
superior numbers , from the ne
ccssity of "abandoning the
party. " State Journal.
Air. Taft on "Insurgenls. "
To the disappointment of Chicago
cage , President Taft reserved his
first speech in support of the
Payne tariff bill until he reached
the northern habitat of the ' 4in-
surgcnts , " and he told the good
people of Winona , Wis. , which is
a hotbed of the "insurgent"
movement , sonic things about the
new tariff law that were whole
some to hear. Without the least
sign of evasion or of oratorical
sidestepping the president went
to the heart of his subject. He
charged that the "insurgents'
who had voted against the bill
had deserted the Republican
party , and declared that the
Payne law is the best tarilT leg
islation ever enacted by a Re
publican congress , and therefore
is the best tariff law the country
has ever known.
The president's answer to the
Chautauqua indictments from La
Follette , Clapp , Bristow and
their ilk was strong and sweep
ing. In a few brief words he cut
the ground from under the feet
of the Republican congressmen
who voted against their party
and told his audience that , not
withstanding all that has been
said to the contrary , the Payne
tariff law is a "revision down
ward , " actually and substantially.
"Was it , " asked the president ,
"the duty of the member of con
gress who believed that the bill
did not accomplish everything
that it ought to accomplish , to
vote against it ? I am here to
justify those who answer in the
negative , I am not here to de
fend those who voted for the
Payne bill , but to support them , "
The heart ol the whole "insur
gent" movement was pierced by
Mr , Taft when he said that to
make party government effective
the members of that party
should ' .iiirrcmler llte.r personal
predilections , which were of com
paratively less importance. He
produced a statement showing
that the new tariff law is a ic-
vision downward , expressing din-
appointment only with the wool
schedule , which , he said , was re
grettable but not in itself of suf
ficient importance to condemn
the bill. Touching upon the
much mooted question of Repub
lican tariff promises , the presi
dent said : "Now , the promise
of the Republican party was not
to revise everything downward ,
and in tlitf speeches which I made
in the campaign , 1 did not prom
ise that everything should go
downward. What 1 promised
was that there should be many
decreases and that in some few
instances increases would be
found to be necessary ; but that
on the whole I conceived that
the change of conditions would
make the revision necessarily
downv/ard and that , I contend ,
under the showing which 1 have
made , has been the result of the
Payne bill. "
President Taft's support of the
new law and his arguments in
justification of his action in sign
ing it , together with his sum
mary of the actual results of re
vision , have placed several West
ern senators and representative *
in an unpleasant predicament.
Certainly the "insurgents" are
left high and dry , exposed and
discredited b/ the word of the
head and leader of the Republi
can iiartv and the president ol
the United States. And their
constituents who do a little think
ing for themselves cannot but
see that the president is right.
Kansas City Journal.
Taft in Hie West.
President Taft's review of 'the
tarilT law at Winona will be the
basia of all parly discussion ol
the subject during the campaign
of 1910. It sets forth the repub
lican position authoritatively.
The position is that while the
party majority in some details ,
particularly the woolen schedule ,
did not reduce the rates as much
as they might safely have been
reduced , in the general handling
the rates were reduced equitably.
If the bill has been vetoed or lost
by one vote , the president's judg
ment is that it would have been
an unwise sacrifice of the busi
ness interests of the country.
Speaking of the party's duty and
interests , he said that it would
have been also a sacrifice of the
solidarity , efficiency and promise-
performing power of the party to
have projected into the next ses
sion another long tariff discussioi
and thereby probably delayed or
defeated other legislation of the
first rank in value to the couu
Mr. Taft expressed gratificat
ion that the republican members
of congress who voted agains
the bill are seeking further action
within the party and not break
ing away from it to give aid ant
cuuntcnance to a party whicl
does not believe in protection
This position is impregnable as
a choice of tactics in party lead
ership. If the party has passe <
a bi'l ' fair toward the various ele
ments of American population
and necessary to uphold the wage-
paying manufactures it has met
the convictions of the party ant
conserved its welfare. The
party , cast and west , north ant
south , can ask or expect no more
The party voters will be pleased
with the president's expositiot
of party duties , They will sus
tain the party majority run ! keep
it in power. The republican
party did not promise to reduce
the tariff to the point of intro
ducing foreign importations that
would demoralize the business ol
American factories. What it did
promise it performed after full
investigation and fair discussion
before public opinion , For him

Mr. Taft has come into the
west , as he said he would , with
out subterfuge or evasion. In
plain terms and with an honest
mind he has told his thoughts on
the tariff and laid down his fu
ture policies. There is not a
doubt that his constructive , defi
nite , moderate views , contrasted
with the demoraliaingtvindictive ,
upsetting purpose of the oppos
ing democratic organisation , em
body the preference of the aver
age American voter. By pursu
ing this course Mr. Taft will
have persuaded and conquered
republican opinion in the west ,
