ONE REASON ENOUGn.
John D. Long, former Secretary of
tho Navy, has compiled eight reasons
why he will not vote for Roosevelt.
This recalls to mind the story of
that monarch who, on a visit to a
certain city, was met by a committee
with a carefully prepared paper,
which It was proposed to read to the
king, giving nineteen reasons why
he had not received a royal salute.
"What is the first reason?" asked
"We had no powder," replied the
"That's enough," said the king.
One reason is sufficient for not
voting for The Colonel. He supplies
It himself. It is because he is sim
GOOD-ROADS JONES AND THE
HULL MOOSE PARTY.
It appears that Representative E.
E. Jones, Susquehanna county, who
Is a candidate for re-election, Is in
trouble with the Bull Mooso party
of that county. This party recently
held a convention at Montrose, and
while endorsing all other Republi
can county and district candidates,
refused to endorse Mr. Jones. The
reason appears to be that In his reply
to State Chairman Wasson's circular
letter asking for the status of can
didates, Mr. Jones replied that he
was a Progressive but was not yet
convinced of the wisdom of the
theory of the recall of fudges and of
Judicial decisions, nor did he think
it wise to commit himself to proposed
legislation without knowing its
specific character. Hence his unac
ceptability to the Bull Moose party
of Susquehanna county.
Is there not current an old saying
about cutting off the noso to spite
tho face? No one doubts Mr. Jones'
ability as a legislator. It has been
abundantly proven. His personal
character and integrity have never
been questioned. Ho is one of the
first citizens of Susquehanna county
as every one concedes. That county
has not had a more acceptable re
presentative In tho legislature In
many years. His reputation as a
wise legislator is state-wide. His
Good-roads bill brought him the
support and approval of every coun
try dweller in the state. His record
and standing are such that the Dem
ocratic party in his own county has
endorsed him for re-election. It
remained for the Bull Mooso organi
zation to find that he was not a fit
candidate for them to support. Be
cause he does not concede the wis
dom of a certain theory propounded
by tho Bull Moose leader, but
which In all human probability will
never have the remotest application
to, or effect upon his county, and
because ho does not tie his hands and
stifle his Judgment in advance con
cerning proposed legislation, the
Bull Mooso party of Susquehanna
county will have nono of him. Was
ever political wisdom so sparingly
exerted? In tho mean timo Good
Roads Jones has no occasion for anx
iety. With tho support of both tho
Republican and Democratic parties,
and with a personal popularity rare
ly equalled by any politician, ho
need not fear anything that tho Bull
Mooso party can do to him In No
vember. THE USE OF TUB VETO.
In tho use that he has mado of the
veto power during the recent session
of Congress, President Taft has done
the country a servlco that will bo
more and moro appreciated as timo
goes on. Ho has dono nothing of a
spectacular character, but he has act
W. W. WOOD
ed with a courage and conscience en
tirely worthy of one in his exalted
position and appreciating its grave
Even the political enemies of
President Taft give him credit for
sincerity and integrity in all his acts.
He has completely Justified that esti
mate. He is never the partisan at
the expense of his patriotism. His
vetoes of the Democratic tariff
measures wero not partisan acts,
though the tariff bills were. Dem
ocrats and Republican deserters had
passed those bills, not to accomplish
any definite economic result, but to
create a political situation. They did
not constitute fit legislation to apply
to the business of this country. They
were crude and destructive, and it Is
fortunate for the whole country
and to none of its people more than
to Its Industrial workers that there
was a strong hand In the White
House to prevent them from becom
The Democratic party, If It would
sincerely recognize conditions, would
find Itself with plenty of reason "to
be thankful that these ill-considered
measures did not get upon the stat
ute books. Had the Democratic
steel and wool and cotton bills be
come laws tho country would have
experienced such a shock and set
back that the Democratic campaign
must have been thrown into utterly
hopeless confusion. Tho country
would have had more than a menace
of the destructive policy of the
Democrats; it would have had a
realization of it, and to a consider
able extent beforo the coming elec
tion. Whenever the Democratic par
ty has had a chance to inflict its tar
iff policy upon the country it has for
feited any confidence it had previous
ly obtained, and suffered defeat.
The same result would attend the en
actment of the measures President
Taft has vetoed.
But the President was not consid
ering politics; he was considering the
interests of the country. It was
not alone tho Interests of the manu
facturer, who is entitled to a fair re
turn for his investments and risks,
but it Is that greater constituency,
the millions of wage-earners which
must be taken into account. Moro
than all others they are dependent
upon the American system of pro
tection which the Republican party
has so successfully maintained.
Democratic theory amounts to noth
ing when placed beside experience
with Democratic practice; with
Democratic tariff legislation which
in the last administration of that
party closed the industrial estab
lishments of the country and sent
thousands of persons to the soup
The Democrats In tho Congress
Just adjourned have given a renewed
demonstration of their unfitness to
handle this great economic question;
they cannot bo trusted with tariff
revision. No party can bo whose
policy is so obviously to destroy tho
manufacturing industries of tho na
tion, and deprivo wage-earners of
living opportunities. Philadelphia
THE STANDARD OIL CONTRIBU
TIONS. Something of a tempest in a tea
pot has been stirred up over the
counter-charges mado by Senator
Penrose and Col. Roosevelt, and tho
testimony of John D. Archbold, con
cerning Standard Oil contributions to
tho Republican campaign chest In
Some years ago William R. Hearst
published In his magazine what pur
ported to bo a letter from John D.
Archbold of tho Standard Oil Com
pany to Senator Penrose, in which
it was mentioned that a certificate of
deposit for $25,000 was enclosed In
accordance with a previous under
standing. Recently this letter was
resurrected by Senator William
Fllnn's Pittsburg Leader, and an of
fort mado to show that Senator Pen
roso received -tho monoy as a person
al bribo for his official action. It
was quite natural that Senator Pon
roso should resent this Imputation
against his personal integrity and
should explain to tho senato that tho
money was received by him as a
contribution from tho Standard Oil
K. It. llAKDKNBKRGil
Company to tho Republican cam
paign fund of 1904, and that as
chairman of the iPonnsylvanla state
committee Mr. Penrose expended tho
money to aid tho cause of Mr. Roose
velt who was at that timo a candi
date for the presidency, and that Mr.
Roosevelt was aware of tho con
tribution, and aware that it had been
used for this purposo at the timo he
directod his campaign manager Mr.
Cortolyou, In a letter which was
widely published, to accept no money
from tho Standard Oil Company.
Senator Penrose's statement appears
to be confirmed by Mr. Archbold, and
by Incontrovertible facts and cir
cumstances, while Col. Roosevelt
vigorously denies that ho had any
knowledge of this contribution, or
of the other contribution of $100,-
000 made In 1004 to Mr. Bliss, tho
treasurer of tho Republican Nation
al Committee, by tho Standard Oil
Company, or of tho further request
of Mr. Bliss to tho same corporation
for an additional contribution. In
the mean time, while Senator Pcn
roso Is cleared of any suspicion of
having pocketed tho $25,0u0, the
Progressive organs and candidates
are raising a vociferous cry that the
Republican party In tho past has
been corrupted by corporation
It seems to us that the wholo
matter has received much more at
tention than it deserves. It is anci
ent history at the best, and the prin
cipal characters In tho transaction
are dead and cannot speak for them
selves. It was bound to act as it
has acted as a boomerang to the
Progressive leaders who injected it
into the present campaign.
It has been no secret that in the
past the corporations of the coun
try, both large and small, have con
tributed freely to the national cam
paign funds of both tho Republican
and Democratic parties. As tho In
terests of a corporation were likely
to be affected favorably or unfavor
ably by the policies advocated by
either party, Its contributions for
party success were mado according
ly. Individuals contributed for ex
actly the same reason. There was
no moral turpitude Involved in
either case. But In these later days
when big corporations are so large
ly under the supervision and con
trol of the national government, and
therefore subject, to some extemt, to
the dictation of the party in power,
It is undoubtedly the better plan to
receive no campaign contributions
from them lest It should be made to
appear, whether rightly or wrongly,
that the money was intended to
purchase immunity from punishment
of prosecution for violation of the
However, there is no charge that
any political party has received
money from a big corporation during
the present campaign, and the vot
ers of tho country should not permit
their attention to be so diverted to
the threshing out of old charges that
they lose sight of tho real and living
issues with which they are confront
ed. The important question is not:
who has contributed to Republican
or Democratic party success in the
past? but It Is: which party through
its policies and leaders Is most likely
to give just protection to tho Inter
ests of all the people, and keep the
wheels of real progress and true
prosperity in motion? It is to this
question that tho people are to re
spond at the polls.
