The knockers who have tried
in many ways to catch President
Taft in a hole find him sate in
the open at every attempt. His
straight forward and unequivical
explanation of the preparation of
the letter cxhonorating Secretary
Ballingcr from Glavis charges
was in keeping with his well
known conclusions in matters of
law and equity.
C. W. Beal , editor of the Bea
con announces in his paper that
he has has an inclination to file
as candidate for county attorney.
Bro. Beal made the race two
years ago against the present in-
cumbant and because he did not
succeed is no reason why he
should not " " since
"try again" his
illustrious leader W. J. has estab
lished the president no one
should say , nay.
W. A. George , republican can
didate for the nomination for
state treasurer , is certainly re
ceiving much encouragement
from all over the state. There is
no better man for the place , and
no one better fitted to fill the
position , and it is with pleasure
we note the' favorable comment
he is getting , He is well ac
quainted over the state , and will
without a doubt receive the
nomination. If nominated , he
will surely be elected. Loup

J. D. Ilaskcll for the Senate.
'The ' name of J. D , Haskell has
been suggested for republican
candidate from this senatorial
district for the state Senate.
Mr. Haskell is one of Custer
county's staunch citizens with
splendid ability. He is not as
sociated with political or division
factions and the REPUBLICAN re
gards him as ideal man for the
place that could easily be elected.
He is one of the men who was
here before the county was or
ganized and has built himself
up with the county in the esteem
of all who know him.
Charles H. Jeffords , one of the
early pioneers of Custer county
and an extensive farmer of Kilfoil
township has announced his can
didacy for the state legislature
from this district subject to the
demo-populist voters at the prl-
mary. Mr , Jeffords is a good
citizen and well capable of filling
the position to which he aspires ,
I he worst fault that he has is
that he is on the wrong side of
the fence politically and should
he be elected when it came to
electing a United States Senator
his vote would be for a free trade

Republican Principles and Party Policy ,
Should republican candidates
loose out in the fall campaign
they will have no one more to
blame than themselves. A house
divided against itself cannot
stand. The democratic party
has demonstrated that often.
There should be no yielding of
party principles or an attempt to
carry water on both shoulders.
If there is one thing more than
another thr. republican party
stands for , it is a protective tariff
A tariff that not only provides
sufficient revenue for the needs
of the government , but a tariff
that at the same time protects
American labor , American fact
ories and American products
against foreign importation.
The political history of the
United States is that under a
tariff law of free trade and rev
enuc only the home supply is
greater than the demand. Labor
becomes a drug upon the market ;
the price of labor , the products
of the farm and factories depre
ciate and business suiters as a
The present tariff law against
which the democrats have to saj
is proving by actual operation the
wisdom of those who framed it
and secured its enactment.
As a revenue measure it is
meeting the demands of the
country. In that particular we
have never had its equal. The
receipts from the beginning of
its operation have turned into
the tills of the government
six billions more dollars than
did any revenue law do before in
the same length of time.
At the same time our industries
of all classes and our products of
all kinds are demanding and
maintaining better prices than
ever before. Labor of all and in
all branches of industry is in
demand at increased and remun
erative wages. No able bodied
person who is willing to do an
honest day's labor need be with
The only commodity of which
we have a surplus is money.
Money is not as in free trade
times in the hands of a few capi
talists and herded up by a hand
ful of money kings.
Everyday labor , mechanic , artist ,
manufacturer , farmer or profes
sional man or woman is not with
out the needful. Many a poor
man since the last democratic
administration has grown rich
and the people generally are in
comparatively easy circumstances
because of the general prosperity
that has prevailed under republi
There is no occasion for any
republican to be ashamed of the
party or present administration.
The only effect that can result
in republican leaders or news
papers joining in the democratic
crusade is to help the democrat
party to gain ascendancy in leg
islative and congressional halls
withtai , iff reform downward and

* The republican editors and
party leaders who haven't the
backbone to face criticism should
take a chiropractic adjustment
for their * spinal column.
There is no occasion for any
republican showing the white
feather. If he will but care
fully study the tariff schedule , he
will find our present law , altho
it may not be in every item just
a s h e would have it , as
stated b y President T a f t
"the best tariff law we haVe
ever had" and better than
any who oppose it could frame.

Washington , D. C. Even if
congress should adjourn , tomor
row the record of the present
administration to date would
really be an extraordinary one.
Never has so much been accom
plished in a single year as has
been attained since the inaugur
ation of President Taft. The
tariff law enacted at the special
session last year was a stupend-
uous piece of work in itself , and
has proved so eminently success
ful that few can be found to
criticize it. It has brought an
unusual amount of revenue and
a wonderful amount of business
to the county. It has given every
man who is worthy of it a chance
to work , and wages are being
increased all over the country1 so
rapidly that it can easily be said
that never before in out history
have the people of tnis country
been receiving so great a reward
for their labor and toil.
As a result of this tariff legis
lation we have entered into pleas
ant relations with every country
gaining from them the most ad-
vantageoue terms for our exports
to them and giving in return the
benefits of our minimum rates.
Such arrangements with our
National competitors throughout
the globe do much more to make
peace and friendly relations than
anything else that could be done ,
and already the principle of a
maximum and minimum tariff
has been fully vindicated , aud
shown not to be a threatening
club , but means to bring advant
age to both sides in a peaceful
and friendly way.
Again the tariff commission ,
made possible by the law , while
we hear little of its workings , is
still a very busy body , and when
the apprppriation now pending
is made available there is no
doubt but a mass of information
collected that will be of benefit
to the executive and to both
houses of congress.
Next to the passage and suc
cessful working of the new tariff
law is the economy put : into
operation and the splendid re
sults therefrom which have ac
crued to the government. It
will not be possible to know just
how great saving has been made
in our expenditures until the end
of the fiscal year , but it is already
knowu that many millions of
dollars will have been saved to
the taxpayers of the country. In
the first place , the postoffice
deficit of $17,000,000 last year
will be reduced to some $5,000 , , "
000 this year , showing a saving
of at least $12,000,000. This is
due largely to the business meth
ods inaugurated by Postmaster-
General Hitchcock , aud to legis
lation that will enable him to put
into effect many reforms in the

In the treasury department
too , throughout the various
bureaus economies "have been put
nto practice , and many thous
ands of dollars saved to the
government. This has been
made possible through the busi
ness judgment shown , by the var
ious secretaries and the desire to
carry out Mr.Taft'swishes , that
not a dollar should be wasted in
any department of the govern
ment. ( The same economy has
been practiced in the various
other departments , and all this
outside'of the savings shown in
When the appropriation bills
are finally made up for the year ,
it will be seen that a great saving
lias been made in almost every
bill , amounting in. the total to
many millions of ' dollars. All
this is hardly noticed by the
general public , but will be a
jreat feature to be credited to
Mr. Taft and his administration
as the figures are finally made up.
It is being proved that a presi
dent and his cabinet officials may
save the government in many
ways quietly and 'without osten
tation and without giving out
daily bulletins to show what has
been done. JWhile'this may not
at the' time gain .for them the
creditthat is their due , yet when
the pebple realize al the end of
the year , whea the , figures have
been made up , what has been
accomplished , they will not fail
to give the proper credit and to
sustain an administration that

As has been stated , even where
there were no further legislation
this session , the result already
attained would be extraordi aary
but there is no doubt that there
will be most important laws en
acted during the closing -weeks of
the present session. It is impos
sible to anticipate just what
these laws will be , or in how far
they will carry out the promises
of the platform or the recom
mendations of the president. It
must be remembered that we are
a nation of 90,000,000 people
covering a vast extent of terri
tory , with most diversified in
dustries , and that the senators
and representatives -who are
working for the best good of all

of long debates te reach the best
results and to arrive at the com
promises that will be acceptable
to the majority.
In view , then , of the record
that has already been made , and
ot ihe legislation sure to be en
acted , and in view of the splendid
administaation that President
Taft is giving to the country , it
seems impossible that the people
will fail to return a republican ,
house of representatives , and by
so doing give a hearty endorse
ment to Mr. Taft and his efforts.
He should have a republican
house of representatives during
the last two years of his term to
enable him and his party to carry
