Now. in North Dakota, in Vermont,
wherever a vote Is to be had by the

ligations. will not. Wilson, with his
1 dreams and visions, cannot. Roose-
velt, with the backing of the Ameri-
can people, can.
Mr. Roosevelt vows that he alone
stands for "social and industrial jus-
tice." Yet his harvester trust allies
are working girls ten hours a day
at starvation wages; and refuse
provide stools or to clear the air of
hemp dust aa the law requires.
The list of his contradictions might
be extended to fill the page Hut
there is one thing In which Mr. Roose-
velt Is always and ever the same, con-
sistent, harmonious, unchanging.
I That is his love for himself, his
confidence In himself, his conviction
that he alone Is fit to guide the
destinies of the nation.
In this matter, Mr. Roosevelt stands
hitched, in everything else, he Is all
things to all men who have votes.
The Final Choice.
The Democratic party In offering
promises In what Is meant to be a
plausible Imitation of tljr square-toed
policies of the Progressive party,
should be judged by the things It has
done when In power.
The sudden and general enthusiasm
for the new organization is due to the
fact—a fact uncontested—that the
splendid improvements it proposes in
American conditions have never been
attempted by either of the parties that
have shared power in the last half
The contest Is between Roosevelt
and Wilson. Hut Wilson 1b a candi-
date nominated with reluctance after
45 Ineffective ballots. The same men
are In control of the party and will
remain so, even though they were
finally convinced that Wilson would
make the strongest candidate for the
voters with Progressive Inclinations.
Champ Clark Is candid enough to
declare that Wilson was not his ' first
choice." The other established lead-
ers are lesB frank about it, but they
still have their "first choices." In-
cluded in their private preference, as
shown by their public records. Is no
wish for the Innovations In govern
ment which the Progressive party was
organized to provide.
The real thing, this year, is the
Progressive party. As between It and
the Democratic party, why waste your
vote on the Imitation?
If you vote for Wilson you will
waste your vote—if you favor progres-
sive legislation—even If Wilson wins
on election day.
"By the Nape of the Neck."
"Rut the greatest American living,
yielding to solicitation by hundreds of
thousands, praying to be delivered
from the campaign, agreed to be a
candidate. (Applause.) Why, he took
Taft by the nape of the neck and
threw him Into the presidency. When
I took my present position, I told
Roosevelt he got us Into this jack pot
scrape and he had not got us out."
(Loud applause.)—Senator Joseph M
Dixon, manager of the Roosevelt
campaign, to the Progressives In Bos-
Then here was a case where all
the people were ruled not nearly by
part of the people, but by one of the
people, if Joseph M. Dixon of Mls-
Boula, Montana, has described the
process rightly. So Mr. Roosevelt
"took Taft by the nape of the neck
and threw him Into the presidency."
Hitherto, most of us had had the Im-
pression that while Mr. Roosevelt was
over-offlcious and over-Influential In
securing the nomination of Mr. Taft,
when It came to being elected to the
presidency, the choice was effected
by that part of the people who had
right to vote, and that a plurality of
these people decreed that he should
be president. Apparently not. Roose-
velt took Taft by the nape of the
neck, and, while several millions of
people looked on helplessly, threw
him into the presidency. If this Is
not evidence that It is about time for
the people to rule, we don't know
what Is. Four years hence, should
Mr. Roosevelt be successful, Senator
Dixon might be out telling the coun-
try the colonel had the whole of us
by the nape of the neck.

The Tariff Joke.
Everybody knows what the trusts

The consideration on the part of the
Republican party and its agents is a
license to the crooked corporations to

Quite a joke on the people. Isn't It?
But the rest of the Joke Is funnier
still. The protected trusts do not

GOT RICH IN
EXPERIENCES OF A BRITISH IW
MIGRANT IN CANADA-WEST.
The following straightforward state-
ment needs no comment to add to
its force and effect. It appears in a
recent issue of the Liverpool Mer-
H. Patterson, of Nutana, Saskatche-
wan, Canada, when he arrived from
Liverpool, had "Six of us to support,"
to use his own phraseology, and his
funds were getting low. He secured
a homestead 32 miles out from Sun-
durn, and started living on it April
15, 1907. The previous fall he put all
his money, $137, into a shack and lot,
making sure of a home. As cook and
caterer in a local hotel he made $75
a month, and out of this had some
savings out of which he paid his
breaking and improvements on the
homestead. The shack was sold to
good advantage. Then Mr. Patterson
tells the story after he had removed
his family to the homestead:
"For the first month life was so
strange and new that I hadn't time to
think of anything, tnly fixing up our
new home. 1 was so 'green' to farm
life that I didn't know the difference
between wheat and oats (I do now)!
Between working out, cropping my
place, and with my gun, we managed
to live comfortably for the three
years, which time was required to put
in my duties. 1 had accumulated
qutte a stock of horses, cows, pigs,
fowls, and machinery In the three
"In October, 1909, 1 secured my pat-
ent to my land, so took a few days'
holidays to Saskatoon to locate a
purchased homestead (viz., 12s. per
acre) from the Government. Instead
of getting the purchased homestead.
I secured a half section (320 acres)
on the Saskatchewan River for $25
per acre on easy terms, nine years'
payments with a cash payment of
$1,000. I mortgaged my first home-
stead, obtained chattel mortgages on
njy stock, and on December 24th,
1909, took possession; on June 10,
1910, 1 sold out again for $40 per acre,
clearing, besides my crop (140 acres),
$4,800. 1 also sold my first home-
stead, clearing $1,800 and two Saska
toon town tots, which we value at
$1,000 each today. We placed all our
capital in another farm (river front
age) and some trackage lots (60), also
a purchased homestead (river front-
age). 1 remained as Manager of the
Farm I had sold cn a three years
contract at a tine salary and house,
garden, and numerous privileges.
"So by the time my three years have
expired, with my investments and the
increased value of my lrontage and
lots, 1 am hoping to have a clear
profit on my $137 investment of
$50,000. My land doesn't eat any-
thing, and it is nearly all paid for. I
hold a good position (and secure)"—
