President Roosevelt couldn't keep out of the campaign for any length of time, event though he has been assured by very many well informed men that his becoming a bitter partisan and doing Republican politics while he is supposed to be acting as the President of the people and of all the people, are doing the cause of Taft incalculable Roosevelt is unhapi in the limelight, and it would be contrary to his preconceived idea for the people to be permitted to select a President without his assistance, advice and threats. Ho after being silenced for a few days by an avalanche of angry criticism from within and without his party, the President's letter writer is in action once more, and SPELLACY WRITES CLEAR CUT LETTER In a clear-cut letter addressed to Ihe Hon. Nathan Straus of New York, Mr. Timothy Spcllacy, in accepting honors voluntarily offered him, points out with telling precision, the reasons that make the election of Bryan a necessity if the American nation IH to preserve its liberties. The letter Js as fololwa: "Los Angeles, Oct. 15, 1908.

Trust orators are busy telling the people that protection is responsible for high wages. Of course that is arrant nonsense. No • harm. But Mr. I beneficiary of the tariff ever wil- appy if he is not UiiRly pave up n part of his fat profits to his help. But lubor has higher wages because it is orgun- i/cd. .So long as the workingimm were units, they were at the mercy of the employers. Once they were fairly organized, they were in position to demand living wages, and have their demand heeded. Not the tariff, but unionism is the factor responsible for the improv- this time he is cudgeling Mr. Bry because labor is supporting him. The President choose to make his fuhnination public through 'th Philander C. Knox, and it was titting and happy choiee.

They have just returned from the south. They are officials and directors of the German Bank of San Francisco and are N. Ohlandt, the president, and also president of the National Ice Company; George Tourny, secretary, and E. T, Krauee and J. W. Van Bergen, directors. The bank formerly had interests In this county. At the time of the big fire the institution was heavily interested and Mr. Tourny, who was here at the time, asserts he remembers the fire well.

President Roosevelt sounded the alarm, but found the representatives of his own party In both branches of Congress so thoroughly controlled by trust and corporate inuence that they repelled his efforts nnd justified their attitude by declaring, with Senator Fonil.'er, that his reforms wore not Republican. but were Democratic measures. Mr. Bryan at the time, showing his disregard of party linen when the Interests of the people wore at stake, requested Democrats to stand by Ihe President and render all support in Ilielr power, but, with united Democratic .support, President Roosevelt was unable to forward the mca.s ute.s curtailing the great power of the trust corporations that is threatening ry existence of our government. The only argument use,l then against lose reforms is the only argument advanced today by tin- Republican orators supporting the election () f .Mr. Taft. namely, the injury they might havf on business.
