The Trade and Traitors. Tho day before ok'otioii, Ileiirsl.'s LOH AriKel'!H Kxaniinnr container! a cartoon which could hn nothing but, an insult, l,o the American voter. It Hnoerwl at the HiiorndneHs of f.ho American citix.eri'H Hoverign right t.o cast liin vote. Jn this cartoon Jlearnt repudiated hin native land. Houred on all mankind becauwo he could not untice American voten to hi« trap by dragging ill-smelling offal around it, ho Hneei-Hat tho American voter, Hiiooi'H at the man once hiH countryman. For Hearst is a man wil.hout a country. Those who war, in newspaper ofllces, taking the returns from a day's work of the American voter on Tuesday of this week, or those who gathered beneath the bulletins, did not sneer. It was a tremendous drama, Two great American statesmen were striving for the highest honor in the gift of the American voter. To the young business man with proHpcct.s n>'bu- lous, Ills feet braced for the race away from poverty, eager to become 'iomething, the verdict, of the people was to be vital. He had rculi/.ed It before going to the polls. Therefore, it was the small business man who brought that huge pressure to bear which elected the Republican candidate. He wanted to succeed. He, voted for himself. It also forever exploded the lurking bomb that organized labor WIIH a factor in shaping the vote of the nation, The union man may organ i/e for his industrial betterment and not make o mistake, fmrhaps, but. ho doos not carry hia organization to the polie. When bo goes there ho votes for bin ohoioo, Greater proot could not bo bad of this fact than the utter failure of {Join pom to deliver tbo labor vote pf thla country to the party which wouk} bring disaster. The voter, be Jie union or without organization was (\ HOVeriKn Mitt dayi and iiu IUHU was his master. In this election wen ere tho damage lias not, always been so. Therefore tho warning which cannot be too earnestly expressed, in addressed to the small business muu who elected Tnfl; to tho Presidency keep up your iuteiesl In affairs of the nation, of the state and of your town, and you will be your own protection always. No man will have cause to sneor at the American voter if ho does not fall into tho pit of apathy. Nothing so degrading will be said as was mild by (Jumpers of the union workers: "1 am able to deliver the union vote where I please." Had Bryan been the great slatcm- iniin that the elected man is, the people would have chosen him, irrespective of party. He is not* Mr. iiryau falls jiiHt, short of being a great man. The small busineKH man and the voter, union or independent, elected Taft. The great, fi loudly struggle between tho two Anieiican pnrtics ended in a choice by the American voters uf the one best fitted for the position in their estimation. Hcartit, the traitor who denied, anil did not hear the crowing of the cook, brought nbout himself the tardy con demnation of the American voter. It he once wore tint chevrons of American chivalry, they are stripped, until such time an his apology to the American voter is accepted. the danger was was done. It Sweeping Victory Follows Fight. Personal ities, campaign quibbling with the truth, and the HpiU* of a great LOH Angeles paper were of nu avail. A saying which IIUH become trite with much UM<. originated with Lincoln: "The truth will triumph." The vutci'b did not uant an employe • if tho liquor interests in the House of Itcpreiientatiyen.

In electing Mel .achlari, what, have we done? We have placed H California man in fourth position out of seventeen on the (livers and Harbors committee, the only representative! on that committee this side of the Kocky mountains. ff he JH returned at the end of this term he will go back HH chairman of this great, committee.

The two cars on the Pacific Klcotrio line sent to Covina on the last trip election night were crowded. They were still well filled whesi JOl Monte was reached. The trailer was switched at 1-il Monte, leaving th;' Covina car to go ou alone, parked to sutll cation, men and women jammed into the aisles like sheep. The people were tired and indignation ran high. It was an orderly crowd, but they were angry and showed it. The same thing is experienced every night on the trip which brings the otllce workers and home coming people between five and six o'clock. Why not send the trailer on to Co viiiiiV There is use for it, for the Covina people occupy two thirds of the seats in these oars the entire trip. The Pacific Klcctrio people am very nice about some things. Perhaps they will do this much for Covina, and save themselves from being acciised of bad management . j For Sal'' I mum cottage on large lot, #r_'iui. Terms. .leiome Ke.v Holds, t 'o\ in.i.
