BEATEN, NOT CRUSHED
TAFT* CORRECT DIAGNOSIS OF
Party Stand* Attend In ths state Vote
and Continues Chltf Bulwark
Against Visionary Attempts
la his speech at the New York Re-
publican club, Prealdent Taft hlmaelf
v auggested that he appeared In the role
of a defeated candidate explaining de-
feat He was frank enough to admit
the euperflclal extent of the dlaaatar
which the Republican party had suf-
fared under hie leaderahlp and to
dwell candidly upon the deficiencies
la political management on hla part to
whlah the reverss might be charged.
Mr. Taft alwaya apeaka his Inmost

Playful allusions to ths lnflusncea
which aeemed to put him out of touch
with ths voters he was perhaps less
sparing than many another Juat or
even hoetlle critic would have been.
It la ths preeldent'a nature to be de-
tached and Impartial, even In deacua-
slng hla own accompllahmenta. To
sueh a nature defeat can bring no very
bitter or lasting atlng. and Mr. Taft
was at hla beat in hla quiet, even, die-
paaalonate treatment of the Republl-
aan aetback of 1*12 and hla refuaal to
let his own feellnga of dlaappolntment

party fanled and how far It did not
Mr. Taft la right In aaylng that the
strength of the Republican party can-
not be fairly judged by the rote It
polled for prealdent. At leaat one
million more votes were caat for Re-
publican atate nomlneea than were
east for the presidential ticket. On
the atate rote the Republican party
stands aecond In the nation, not third.
Eliminating the personal lasuea car-
ried into the prealdentlal fight the
party la In a position to recuperate
Quickly and to aaaume the poaltlon of
the only aubatantlal opposition to the
Wllaon adminlBtration. Ita disband-
ment was not decreed laat November.
On the contrary, it remaps the single
available organized force to which can
rally the hundreda of thouaanda of
voters who are likely to disapprove
the policy of a Democratic prealdent
and a Democratic congreaa. Great
parties are not easily anuffed out, and
the Republican party, though tempor-
arily disorganized, has before It aa
aure a prospect of recuperation aa it
had after the still more decisive Dem-
ocratic victory of 1892.
TAFT VS. SPOILS SYSTEM
Presdsnt'a Record Makaa Foolish the
Attache In Congreaa on Civil
The prealdent juatly resents the ab-
oard Intimation that haa been made
upon the floor of the house that his
recent order placing 38,000 fourth-
claaa postmasters in the claaaifled
eivll service waa of political inaplra-
tten. As a matter of fact, that order
waa laaued aa a direct result of the
petition of 20.000 postmasters. Mr.
Taft la merely following the conslatent
policy he Uluatrated when on Septem-
ber 30, 1910, he put 400 aaslatant post-
maaters and clerka, in firat and aecond
elaaa offices, under the law.
The effort of hla enemies to make
capital out of the new order la but
one more despicable attempt at the
eleventh hour to rob Mr. Taft of aome
of the credit due to him for hla patient,
far lighted, patriotic aupport of ths
merit ayatetn. No prealdent haa done
more to make the Pendleton civil aerv-
ice act a living and potent lnatrumen
tallty for the abolition of the vlcloua
spoils system, ao firmly Intrenched in
the public service before 1181. Of
courae hla Inflexible attitude aa the
Aamplon of Integrity and disinter
eatedneaa In the aelectlon of the peo-
pled servants haa made foea for him,
among thoae who bitterly resent being
deprived of patronage. When the at-
tack la made on the floor of congreas
the anlmua back of It la only too
clearly apparent, for It la the bualneas
of certain congreaamen to make their
eonatltuenta believe that the, failure to
provide loavea and flahea for a hungry
horde of appllcanta la entirely the fault
of an obatlnate and Pharisaical preat
Hypocrlay of Democrate.
There la no reaaon why Massa-
chuaetta congreaamen should be
ashamed of aupporttng the preaent
rate on ahoea If they think It la the
proper rate. But there Is good rea-
aon why Democrats should be aahamed
of preaching low tariff on the ground
that It would reduce the coat of living,

THE BAROMETER OF THE POST
OFFICE, THE READING OF
WHICH SHOWS WESTERN
Several of Western Canada news-
papers coming to hand daring the
last part of the year 1912 contained
Itema of news such aa the following,
■peaking of the Chrlatmaa work la
"Other years have been heavy and
the employees have had plenty of op-
portunity of learning what It waa to
work overtime, but the paat haa had
nothing equal to the present.- Forty
extra men have been employed (la
Winnipeg), and mall trains have been
run special. The Increase In the mall
thla year has been due to the enor-
mous influx of people into Weatera
Canada during the season, and also
the general prosperity which the
prairie provinces have enjoyed. To
the latter cauae has been due the
heavy Increase in the number of par-
cels which have been shipped to the
old country and Eastern Canada."
The above extract taken from a
Winnipeg paper gives a fair Idea of
the great work that the Canadian
postofflces have had all through the
western prairies. During the past
year hundreds of new postofflces were
establlabed, many of them at remote
points from the railway, but all forced
upon the country on account of the
new aettlementa that have taken
place during the year. It 1a aald of
the Canadian government that la Its
immigration and settlement policy
there ia nothing left undone to take
care of the people and their welfare,
whether It he In the new town along
a new line of railway or In the re-
motest hamle'. This solicitude and
care are not confined to the poatof-
flce, but with every branch that has
to do with organizing new districts.
Bridges have been built, roada con-
structed, the district policed, and a
dozen other things have to be done
and are done. Is it any wonder that
with the aplendid land, the high
yielding land, the land that la free to
the homesteader or open to purchaae
at reasonable prices from the railway
and land companiea, that the Cana-
dian immigration recorda for 1912
will show arrivals of upwarda of
400,000, one-half of this being from the
United States. The new literature
being sent out by the immigration
branch at Ottawa, and Its agencies
throughout the United States deals
with many of the new and interesting
features that will mark the work of
that branch for the year 1913.—Ad*

Something to Be Thankful For.
Michael Meehan was the proud poa-
aesaor of a brand new% silk high hat.
At the wake of hla dearest enemy he
had guarded it carefully, and aa a
consequence waa strolling home with
the tile unscathed. As he paaaed the
aite of a building operation, a lady
acquaintance nodded pleaaantly.
With an ostentatious wave of the
hat. which exhibited it to excellent ad-
vantage, Michael bowed. At the aame
moment a brick sailed down from an
upper floor and bounced from hla
bared akull. Upon coming to he in-
quired anxloualy for the hat. A by-
atander restored it unharmed. Mike
felt the egg-sized lump on hla head
occaaloned by the impact of the brick,
and then regarded his undamaged
tile. "Begorry," he sighed in satla-
faction, "it's lucky it is I saw the
loldy In tolme!"

Bhort distance from the village where

gone far, however, until Harry's
breath was coming in short Jerks and
he could hardily talk.
