Which is best equipped? Which stands most for a square deal for til! without prejudice, fear or favor? Which would accomplish most in controlling and regulating the great corporations, trusts and combines, and most vigorously enforce the laws against those who violate them? What About Taft? What do the big, level-headed business men of the country, Democrats as well as Republicans, say of him'? What Roosevelt Has Said of Him.

We have the same views as tw what is demanded by the national -interest and honor, both within our own borders ami as regards the relations of this nation with other nations " "Ho has a hearty sympathy with the oppressed, entire disinterestedness, courage both moral and physicaLof the very '"-' o! coat off and, with sleeves rolled up, has been tackling some of the hardest jobs that ever confronted this countvy,'' "Mr. Taft is a man who in widely varying lines of endeavor has delivered the goods. No job ever was too big for him, every job put up to him he mastered.'' What Do Leading Democratic Papevs Say of Him? It is true that most of the lending level-headed business men ot the country, Democrats as well as Republicans, favor Taft, and several leading Democratic papers commend him. Hero aro expressions from some of them: The Baltimore Sun—"All that the American people know of Mr. Taft the man is to his credit, lie is big of brain as well as of body, an honest,, wholesome, likable American, who has all the qualities which inspire respect and confidence as between man and man." The Philadelphia Record calls him "a man of the highest character and fine abilities." The New York Times flays: "ft is very high praise, and just praise, to say that, he has attempted a multitude of great tasks and has failed in none." The New York World declare: "He has conspicuous qualific.alions for the office." The Brooklyn Eagle says: "The Republican party never named a eandi/late apparently so well equipped by great duties for the greatest duty." ' Richmond (Virginia) News-Leader: "The Baltimore Sun yesterday came out for Taft, announcing its position in a leading editorial article. This leaves the. Democrats.-without,.a single '** ^yV""l$'^«f JfS***j^" ]J**^¥^*^ ifpr*yyf ™^ > ™* j"T_ ^ of nature Which makes mm TPOI' tnflr all of his fellow countrymen are in very truth his friends and brothers, find that showed a. great courage. are al«n the two (nullities which a great president." ANDREW M. PENCE ATTORNEY-AT-L.AW Notary Public Phone 1039 Reed Block theiv interests are his. "On the bench Judge Taft the two qualifies which make indge: wisdom and moral They malti "If there is one body of men morr than another whose support I feel I have a right to challenge on behalf of Secretary Taft. it is the body of wage- Phone 3065 I workers of the country. If as a judge __]he incurred the displeasure of labor by 'his use of injunctions, he has aKn incurred the bitter hostility of foolish and bigoted reactionaries by hi* frank criticism of the abuse of Hie power of injunction in labor disputes." It. was a decision of Judge Taft 's which 'for the first time gave full vitality to the principles of the employ- era' liability for injuries done workmen.' " Let him be judged by what he himself has done and by what (lie administration, in which he has played HO conspicuous a part, has done." What Hughes Says of Taft. il promoter of all sorts of wild cat corporations of mushroom growth, organ- ' i'.ing twenty-three in four years in Mils- [ kogee, nearly nil' extinct; who has been . sued many times in slate courts and fed- I era I courts, has many judgments stand- i ing against him and is judgment proof; ! has been a tool of Standard oil; and of whom Roosevelt, said: "I regard it as a scandal and a disgrace that. Mov- ernor Haskell should have anything to do with the management of any na- side-stepper from in his ell'orls to reach tional sampnign' I he correct course the coveted goal. Did Bryan Know Haskell's Character? \i. H. Russell, editor of the Ardmore (OkIn.) Democrat, and others, state that they fully advised Bryan, in open let- I ters and otherwise, before the Denver! convention, as to Haskell's real character. Bryan Claim as Heir to Roosevelt Policies. Karly in the campaign Bryan claimed to be the author and rightful heir lo the Roosevelt policies; that he was entitled to take Roosevelt 's place and carry out his policies. But, since Roosevelt has publicly declared himself as n strong supporter of Taft and not favorable t(i liryan, and especially since Roosevelt,'s Haskell letter, Mr. Bryan not speak so highly of Roosevell his policies. lie has even said: Roosevell; ha?i done nol.hing against the trusts," Let us see.

The Sacramento Bee, the'one and only big Democratic, paper in California anil which is able ami independent, about a year ago started and carried on for several weeks n systematic campaign, by petitions, to induce Roosevelt to stand for a .second elective term and had great success in securing names. The effort was in vain, bill it showed the sentiment of the Bee and of the thousands who signed ils petition. What About Bryan? Hi van is a big man; one of the most brilliant, orators living; great as a campaigner and organi/.er; lie is resourceful, versatile, ready, adroit; has a fertile brain ami vivid imagination; n markable vitality and slaying powers; can ma n n fact lire catchy phrases and gnatly expatiate upon them. Well he may. Il(! has been in constant training ami almost, constant practice in these linen for the past twenty years. This one. thing he does. This and only this. Bryan is a man of words, of theories, of fallacies; not of achievement. These abilities, practices and characteristics are mainly praiseworthy. But further than this, Bryan is the typical awycr; In- has marvelous ability in making tin- worse appear the reason, 1 ' in being silent upon or lielii- Iling important questions and, and in putting foiwnid and greatly magnifying things of bill little moment or of no importance at all.
