Governor Woodrow Wilson
The language used may be conventional, but the meaning
is not at all so, when it is said that Woodrow Wilson is an ideal
candidate for the Democratic party to present to the people of
To those of us who have been struggling these many years
not only lor decency and honesty in politics but for something
beyond that for knowledge, and an intimate sense of the needs
of the people; for elightenment upon great public questions; for
high intelligence in public ollice; for the thinkers view of public
questions, .is contrasted with that of the politican—the news
that Woodrow Wilson has been nominated for the Presidency
seems almost too good to be true.
A man so honest that to some, at least, of his opponents he
seems to lean backward.
A man of thorough economic training who believes in a tariff
for revenue only and knows why he does.
A man of such comprehension and liberality of view that he
can know and understand all sections of the country and yet,
with a I a Southerner, a Virginian by birth, also a Baltimorean.
A man ol rare intellectual training.
An amateur in politics, yet one who achieves things which
the professionals might boast of.
This schoolmaster, this pedagogue, Went into the office of
governor of New Jersey and he put through the legislature of
that state a program of legislation that stamped him as the
most "practical of politicians i f practically means the ability
ot a man to get what he wants. Only a few weeks ago lie gave
another illustration of his practicality when he carried the pri-
maries in his state by overwhelming majorities and sent to Balti-
more li t out of the 2S New Jersey delegates to the national con
vention. We of Maryland who watched sympathetically the
career of Austin L. Crothers know how hard it is for a man to
make a good governor without parting company with the poli-
ticians of his state and without succumbing to the strength of
their resentment at the next primary election. That Woodrow
\\ ilson could do this proves him no ordinary man.
And he is no ordinary man. Scholarly, dignitied, earnest;
cultured, erudite, polished; these adjectives certainly apply to
him but they do not touch his most characteristic quality. That
quality we are convinced, after watching his career for many
years, is one which it would be difficult to define percisely, but
which embraces a deep patriotism, a broad open-mendedness and
a thorough-going sympathy with the feelings and needs and the
hopes and ambitions of the American people.
Happy the nation that can impress sucn men into servi'-e.
The D. T. Editor Stung
i he Editor of the D. T. one W. J. Hess, seems to have taken
offence at one of the statements made in Hon. Oliver H. Akin's
platform and to ease the welt raised ou his rhinocerous hide
took a dirty fling at the editor ol the Cleveland County Enter-
prise by assei ting what he knew to be au untruth concerning th^*
ownership and eoutrol of the Cleveland County Enterprise.
Only in a nominal way was Hutchin and Hughes, ever in any way at
auy time connected with the Cleveland County Enterprise and it
has been over a year since Mr. Hutchin has even been connected
with the paper in a nominal way, and all of this the editor of j
the D. T. knew when he published the article in Tues
day's issue of his paper. Since the sale of the plant near
ly two years ago, Mr. Allan has had nothing to do with the
newspaper and has taken no interest in its management or con
trol and all articles he has written for the paper have been sub-
mitted to me and filed for publication bv me or put into the
waste basket, if not meeting with my approval, and all of this
was well known to the editor of the D. T.
1 here never has been any question as to owners or who was
control of the Cleveland County Enterprise, but can as much
be said ol the D. T.Who are the present owners, or the parties
interested in the D. T.y Prom the amount of state work the
plant is doing, it would seem that tlie state printer held a very-
kindly feeling toward the D. T. to say the very least.
DEMOCRATIC ANNOUNCEMENT PROFESSIONAL CARDS
A crowd of Oklahotns City tax dodgers, men who never paid
their just share ol taxes and who never will do so, save under
protest, have perfected the most cute of all schemes to bunco
the people of the state. Lead by the biggest tax dodgers in
the state, they have organized a movement that permits all tax-
payers who will to join the organization upon the payment of a
liberal initiation fee. And the strange part of the game is that
quite a number of real tax payers are biting at the bait. The
sure enough tax leagues of the state are engaged in a worthy
work and should be encouraged. The tax dodgers of Oklahoma
City need no encouraging. They are always active in the work
of doding taxes, and at present they seem able to work the state
lor a considerable sum of fleece money.
Less than four weeks time remains for the several candi
dates to hustle for votes in the primary and they are hustling
some, and chasing down reports circulated concerning their un
fitness. For the most part, so far, the democratic candidates are
seeking support on their own merits, saying nothing about their
opponents. If a candidate in a primary cannot speak well of his
opponent, he would do well not to speak of him at all. In a pri-
mary contest the best of feeling between the candidates should
prevail and this can only be secured by each candidate piying
strict attention to the weeding of his own row. The candidate
who hopes to make his task easier by calling voters attention to
his opponents row is making a mistake. The voters are the
judges and they are not lisnening much to what the candidates
are saying of each other; but rather are observing how they are
attending to their own business in their canvas for support
Mud slinging tactics, on the part of candidates toward each
other, should not be indulged in. The jury will hardly be favor
ably impressed and return a verdict on what candidates may-
say of one another for such jury understands that candidates
are not unbaised witnesses in the case. The candidate who
would seek to win a nomination by disqualifying his opponent is
not a bad candidate for the voters to disqualify at the primary

In many of the west and northwestern states, the Republi
cans will name and support Roosevelt electors. This action on
the part of republicans in the strong republican states has cast a
loom of sadeess over the Taftites. The Roosevelt forces at
Chicago are making their threat good not to recognize the nomi-
nee of a convention in which was seated at least 78 delegates not
entitled to seats in the convention. The nomination of Gov
Wilson at Baltimore may have blighted Col. Rossevelt's hope of
election; but it does not seem to have effected his determination
to defeat a candidate whose nomination was secured bv the votes
ol delegates seated in the convention by the steam roller process.

The Chicago platform asserts that the tariff should not be
reduced without intelligent knowledge of the facts. But tin
republican party increased the tariff without information. Ad-
mitting that there is no information, is it more reprehensible to
reduce a burden than to increase it? Do the republican cohorts
admit that all the tariff juggling that they have practiced for
the last half century was done in ignorance and without proper
information? Ignorance is sufficient to pension the interests, but
xhaustive information is required to legislate for the common
