REPUBLICAN NATIONAL TICKET
WILLIAM H. TAFT
Of Ohio, for Presid nt.
JAMES S. SHERMAN
Of New York, for Vice President
WORK REPUBLICAN CONVENTION
The republicans have nominated
their candidate for president with
comparatively little friction. There
has been some criticism of t'ae presi-
dent for th** part be played in this
great political engagement; but be-
sides letting it be known that ho fav
©red Taft, he does not seem to have
violated any of the proprieties. Ho
might have interfered in his own state
in Taft's behalf, but he refrained fr< m
It, The secretary of war made abso-
lutely no effort to secure the vote of
New York and would allow no inter
ference with the plans of those who
endeavored to Instruct the state for
Governor Hrghes. The president d<v>a
not seem to*have used the patronage
at his disposal to influence anyboiy
in Taft's behalf; nor does he appear
to have applied the lash of coercion
He merely signified his preference and
let nature- ta\e its course.
The Chicago gathering is unques-
tionably a Roosevelt convention. It
wou'.d have liked to nominate him for
a third term; but to have done so in
the face of his solemn and emphatic
declaration would have been an !n.
pugnment of his sincerity and an a'
front to him personally, it was only
natural that the delegates should en
dorse the president with unexampled
enthusiasm and should approve what
is known as "his policies. We must
confess that there is nothing new in
these policies. They are the old re
publican policies with part of the dem
ofratlc reed grafted on them. They
have been personalized by Mr. Roos«
volt, but of course It is going to b
impossible to continue the president'^
personality in the presidential chair
The delegates, having been debarre.
from selecting Roosevelt, doubtless
feel, from their standpoint, that th^y
have gotten the next best thing. Th<*
nominee of the republican party is un
questionably the strongest of the can
didates far the nomination. Cannon
is a man of commonplace ability, and
his age was against him. Hughes
has made a good deal of reputation
in Ifew York, but to the west and the
south he Ib more or less of a phan
tom. Knox is unquestionably one of
the great intellectual forces In the re
publican party, but he has dane nota
ing to make him a national figure
LaPolIette is a clean and able man
who wears a pompadour. Fairbanks
would make, doubtless, a respectable
president of the conservative order,
but ho is the last man in the country
to lead the popular fancy captive.
William H. Taft is a comparatively
young man, who has served his coun
try on the bench, in executive poslti *ns
and in diplomatic office. His service
on the bench has made him even-tem
pared and judicial. His occupancy of
the governorship of the phlppines has
brought him in touch with the world s
diplomacy and politics. His expei*-
once as secretary of war has equipped
him doubtless, for the discharge of
the duties of the chief executive office
of the nation. The Commercial Ap-
peal is a democratic newspaper anfl
expects to do all that it can to elect
a democratic presiJent. It believes
that the republican party has had too
loag a tenure of office, and that the
best Interests of the people demand 1
change; but it is not so small and
narrow as to deny that the republi-
cans have nominated a great Ameti-
can for pesident. If he is e'.ected we
have no doubt that he will adorn tn<*
office and prove a worthy successor
of his lllustrioa.s predecessor. Ther^
Is no denying the fact that Secretary
Tati is richly endowed with lutallect
and that he is a most estimable gen-
It *a en.'dcred that Judge Taft i*
ireak with the labor people with the
legroes and with some of . .3 big •-
industrial combinations, he is not apt
to be bo dramatic as Mr. Roosevelt.
He may. Indeed, carry out the latter's
policies, but with the saving grace or
conservatism. Indeed, we can hardly
imagine Taft, projecting hlms If into
national legislati *n as the president
has done. The negro vote is not ant
to be alienated from the republican
party, for the very simple reason thpt
th democratic party heartily endorsed
the position taken by Taft and Roose-
velt with regard to the negro tough3
nt Brownsville Just what effect Judge
Taft's decisions of many years ag">
will have on the labor vote we con-
fess that we ar unable to foresee.
The republicans have evidently seen
a few lights recently. The people 01
the United States have b «'n steadily
growing into the conviction that, the
protective tariff has a good deal to
do with the maintenance of the trusts
and that there is hardly any such thing
as an Infant industry in this country.
The republican leaders have, therr-
fore, began to feel their way gingerly
towards the democratic station for
tariff reform. We find the new plat-
form proclaiming that "the republican
party declares unequivocally for a rs
vision of the tariff by a special session
of congress." The sincerity of this
declaration may well be questioned;
but It gives proc.f to the people that
even the republican party can read the
handwriting on the wall, and that u
realize, if it is to remain in power, it
must at least profess a solicitude /or
a revision of the tariff.
The anti-Injunction plank was evi-
dently framed for the purpose of off
s ttlng the former decisions of Judge
Taft and leading to the establishment
of the entente cordiale with organized
labor. There is, of course, no use in
our blinding ourselves to the fact*.
The democrats have got to beat a
big man for president. They are eon-
fronted with a very adroitly drawn
platform, which they must meet win
a better one. Against the excellen
gentleman nominated without mucn
enthusiasm in deference to the wish
of a popular president—an idol ol
the hour—we have nothing to say. But
against the tendencies of the pari,
that nominated him much can b said
and il*e democratic party has an ex
cellent chance to say It. It must con
tinue to stand for constitutional gov-
ernment, the rule of the people, tlie
undying principles of liberty and gov
eram nt with the consent of the gov-
erned. If It stands valiantly by these
ideals, It will have an excellent chance
to elect Mr. Bryan In November.—
Memphis Commercial Appeal.
Probably If ex-Governor Frantz knew
how anxious some of the democrats
are to discover his whereabouts ho
hlght turn up long enough to appease
their anxiety, if nothing more. It is
safe to say that Frantz is neither lost
nor stolen and will turn up in due
same time put in for the party us is
used in making kicks would certain!/
accomplish better results, and results
are what is wanted now In Oklahoma
more than kickers.
The Shawnee morning organ of th?
state administration comes out in a
rather defiant way and declares the
primary election law to be unconstitu-
tional, just as if the remaining thru
fifths of the wild cat laws passed bv
the recent legislature were not in the
same boat. The morning organ do
mauds tnat the press take the matter
up and secure a decision from the
stato courts. While there is nu doubt
about the primary law being a poor
makeshift at law making and a ong
legislative freaks for which the sey-
bion gained its prominence, we have
neither defense nor approval to placi
upon its provisions. It was a socialist*
populist-democratic measure a^d for
which that conglomeration of parties
incompetents will have to stand the
responsibilities for Its existence as a
menace to a republican form of gov-
ernment and the one the most desired
to destroy. The democratic party has
assailed our courts In the exercise of
their constitutional rights to protect
the people against abuses attempted
to be heaped upon them by irrespons*.
ble parties with nothing to lose and
everything to be gained. They also
deny the rights of corporations to con-
trol their property and at the same
time protect their stockholders.

the best winning card that the repub

A VOICE FROM OKLAHOMA.
The following article, taken from
Wiltshire's Magazine, is interesting, if
not altogether pleasing to all persons:
"In our last Issue an article entitled,
"Back to the Land," appeared, which
has been the cause of lome Inquiry
amongst our readers. In It was given
an extract from the letter of an Okla-
homa farmer, who invited the unem-
ployed of the east to come out to Ok-
lahoma and take up public land if
they needed work. Many of our read-
ers seemed to think that some kind of
opportunity existed there, and inquired
here seeking information. Since thou
we have received the following letter
from an Oklahoma farmer, Mr. Fred-
erick Guth of Driftwood. In that state,
which we reprint in its entirety:
"I notice in your May Issue an arti-
cle, "Back to the Land," to which you
gave a reply according to my "aeart.
The friend you quote is from Oklaho-
ma. So am I. Now as a farmer who
has studied the farming situation here
from an economic standpoint, let me
give you the facts as they really are. -
Oklahoma today is no more the land
of the poor man; it has developed Into
a capitalistic sta'e quicker than any
other state in America. First, as to
public land, will say there Is no such
thing today in Oklahoma. We havr
what Is called school land, whic'.i th-
state will lease to any man, but thes
lease titles are already in the hands
of private individuals, and sell all th
way from $1,000 to $2,000. Another
thing, this so-called public land will
shortly be sold by the state to the
highest bidder and it will eventuate in
the biggest graft ever perpetrate"1,
in the glorious west. It will be a poli-
tician's feast. In fact, it is so al-

Lester M. Nelson, of Naples, Maine,
says la a recent letter: "I have used
Dr. King's New Discovery many years
for coughs and colds, and I think It
saved my life. I have found it a re-
liable remedy for throat and lung
complaints, and would no more be
without a bottle than I would be with-
out food." For nearly forty years
New Discovery has stood at the head
ot throat and lung remedies. As a
preventive of pneumonia, and heialer
of weak lungs it has no equal. Sold

taining opiates. Kennedy's Laxative
Cough Syrup moves ths bowels.
Contains no opiate*.
"A Cold or a Cough nearly always
produces constipation—the water all
runs to the eyes, nose and throat In-
stead of passing out of the system
through the liver and kidneys. For
want of moisture the bowels become
dry and hard."
Kennedy's Laxative Cough Syrup
relieves Colds by working them out
of the system through a copious
action of the bowels.

Bryan's crltcisms of the republican
platform was just whut was wanted
and the more he gives to the public
of the same kind of talk the better it
will be for the republicans and the
worse for democracy. His remarks is

Sixteen years I suffered from weak'

You have fitted my eyes so perfect-
