He is for Mr. Taft because Mr. Taft is for him. He is for Mr, Taft because Mr. Taft is in sympathy with trusts. Mr. Taft has been making speeches for many weeks and he has not yet dwelt upon the iniquities of the trusts or pointed out the tnjusttce done to th« American people by them. No wonder Mr. Rockefeller is for Taft. Again Mr. Rockefeller says Mr. Taft's election will make for law and order. That is false. Mr. Rockefeller's corporation is the most notorious lawbreaker in the United States and he Is for Mr. Taft because he does not want the law enforced. IF HE MR.

Mr. Rockefeller also says that Mr. Taft's election will make for stability of business. What kind of business? Stability In the tnist business is what he means. He thinks that Mr. Taft's election will enable the trusts to get a tighter strangle grasp upon the American people and put their extortion upon a more permanent foundation.
