A few dtiys since the local trust organ was declaring that Democrats were avoiding the tariff is-:,., ,, , sue, because of its wonderful life-, ' ! ^ s giving properties in connection , as '*' -'" with wool, raisins and prunes. But; ;»ibekmnvnst, of now it appears that Democrats are the only ones with an appetite, lor further discussion of j (Harper'* \VeeUlv, Uep,) .\ IVw days jil'tcr .Air. Taft was ' nominated, ('resident Koosevelt ; declared that "under no circimi- jstimees" would he take the stump. {This was ''positive," also'Nleti- nite," also "final." etc., etc. He 1 now aiithnrixcs the imperturahle i I,coli to jiiiimiuicc that he may jniiike a few speeches to "inject some trinjjei 1 " into the canvas, and : probahly lie will. We can see no ! reason why he shouldn't. This is Mhe President's n'tfht, and he is en- i titled to make it in his own way. j The fact that he said he wouldn't i talk has no ben ring upon the situation. To cljanjre one's mind , has been a royal since ,men began to rule. Mr. Bryan's 'pathetic whine to the effect that he ought not to be compelled to 'meet two antagonists deserves no consideration whatever. Nobody bus constituted him the maker of the rules of Ihe game. Nor need , the views of the so-called Republican "managers" respecting (lie advisability of the President performing be regarded seriously. They are not conducting Mr. canvass. All they were do was to raise the wind. irse, anil they have demonstrated their inefficiency so lamentablv that more than JJ3, Berges & Company Wholsale Dealers in Wines, Liquors And Cigars The cream of all goods served in sample room.

There 'is, then 'nothing to lose, and much perhaps to gain. People \vould flock in thousands to see nnd hear the President, and everybody would read his speeches, whereas Mr. Taf'I's pass comparatively imim- tieed. Here in the east probably Hughes and Hoot and other old- fashioned speakers eiin meet (lie emergency, but out west -mine smashing slani!\vhanging would be accepted with keen relish. Why sliniildn'( the President supply il? N'oboily else can. Nobody else holds a position sufficiently exalted to make violent denunciation popular. We u-rant that a debate willi Bryan would be ill advised, ll would be most undiynilied. and. between ourselves, perhaps II little ba/.ardous. The nimble-mindetl <>M Doctor is pretly ^ood on his I'eet. Moreover, il always aiiiiovs the president lo have any one talk back. He knows what's what, and ' he likes to say what he wauls to : say when he wants lo say it. ( Ml' ; with the lid ! iu Hue with the landslide that Is expected for the Democratic nominee. The eorrospendent's article and figures follow: The elections for governor held last month in Maine, in the northeast cor- ier of the United States, and in Ar- <ansas, In the southwest, would ap- ;iear significant. In Maine the Republican candidate for governor received 75,591 votes in 1904 and 73,243 in 1908, a loss of 3.1 »"l )lk ' (l (0 Ruhernatorlal vote of 1906. per cent, while the Democratic candidate received 49,791 votes In 1904 and 65,057 votes In 1908, a gain of 31.6 per cent.
