II is up to the department to com-

either of which would be suitable tim-

With either of these men at the head
of the Interior department with a
president in sympathy we could con-
fidently expect a speedy and satis-

which have so long retarded the ad-
vancement of this section and de

decision on the 5th of November, It
cannot be postponed. We cannot vote
without making it, and if we do not

Tile next four years will determine
how we are lo solve the question of
the tariff, the question of the trusts,
the question of the reformation of
our whole banking and currency sys-

resources and of the health and vigor
of our people, the development of
our means of transportation, the right
application of our scientific knowledge
to the work and healthful prosperity
of our whole population, whether in
the fields or in the factories or in
the mines, the firm establishment of
a foreign policy based upon Justice
and good will rather than upon mere
commercial exploitation and the sel-
fish Interests of a narrow circle of
financiers extending their enterprises
to the ends of the earth, and the
extension of the assistance of the

ance, who if set off by themselves
in the management of such tilings,
too easily lose sight even of their
own intimate and inseparable re-

all generations, not merely for our
own, for the sake of communities
and nations and not merely for the
immediate use of those who hasten
to enlarge their enterprises and

and spend its money to develop a
whole people and a whole continent,

We must consider our foreign
policy upon the same high principle.
We have become a powerful member
of the great family of nations. The
nations look to us for standards and
policies worthy of America. We must
shape our course of action by the
maxims of justice and liberality and
good will, think of the progress of
mankind rather than of the progress
of this or that investment, of the
protection of American honor and
the advancement of American ideals
rather than always of American con-
tracts, and lift our diplomacy to the
levels of what the best minds have
planned for mankind. We must de-
vote the power of the government to
the service of the race and think at
every turn of men and women and
children, of the moral life and physi-
cal force and spiritual betterment of
those, all of those for whom we pro-
fess to have set government up.
None of these high things can be
to see better days for their children
and for all who are oppressed, the
men wl.o never grow old but always
press forward to enterprises of the
new age, all who desire free oppor-
tunity and love the public course
that is just and righteous and quick
with the hopes of mankind. A great
people is turning its face to the light,
not desiring a revolution, but loving
the right and determined to set it
up, wisely, temperately, honorably,
with prudence and patient debate, not
in irritation or in haste, but like
men, not like children. It is a great
day and a propitious one. The re-
sponsibility is ours, and we shall
assume it knowing what it means.
The decision of the 5th of November
will usher in, if we be true, a new
day of confidence, freedom and pros-
perity. It will be no niggardly
triumph of a party or a faction, but
the triumph of a people. The Demo-
cratic party will be, not the selfish
victor, but the trusted instrument,
and the years that follow will test
every principle of the great republic.
God grant we shall be worthy to pre-
vail. WOODROW WILSON.
