"AFTER THE ELECTION - FUNDS
(By Willis J. Abbot)
o Wu.ilmiKtun May -i -(Spocl.il)
The secretary of tlio anti-trust
league appeared tlie other day be-
fore a congressional committee and
bonis under oath made statements
to this effect:
The gentleman charged that An-
drew Carnegie H. II. Cerry and other
prominent olllclals of the steel trust
had nlreudy raised great sums of
money for the nomination of Sec-
retary Taft. He Insisted that It
given an opportunity to produce his
evidence he would lie able to prove
the case. And jiow It appears that
the senate Judiciary committee will
do what all the republican commit-
tees and dignitaries have been do-
ing order an Investigation and a
report -after the election.
After the election. It Is wonder-
ful how great Is the popularity of
that phrase among the republicans
In the two houses of Congress to-
day. The newspaper publishers of tho
nation want free wood null) and
free paper. The matter Is referred
to a commission which will report
after the election. I
The people of the nation want Im-
mediate tariff revision. Again this
'ii. and Is referred to a commission
to report after the election.
The president who Is supposed
to lead the republican party makes
a request for legislation to protect
the forests In the White Mountains
and the Appalachian range. Once
again by the despotic power of
Speaker Cannon and his well-disciplined
henchmen tho Issue Is re-
ferred to a commission which Is to
report after the election. Tho first I
session of tho sixtieth congress met
on the first Monday In December.
It Is now planning to adjourn with-
out having dono anything In tho wav
of legislation for tho popular good.
us members hoast of having passed
appropriation bills a lot of private i
pension Dills a law regulating child
labor In the District of Columbia
and a few other routine or compara-
tively trivial measures.
Hut not one law of wide and gen-
eral national Interest has been un-
noted. Money has been spent so
that this will bo a billion dollar
session which will probably mean
a two billion dollar congress. Tho
appropriations already niado Indicate
a treasury deficit for tho present
fiscal year of $150000000. The na-
tional debt has not been reduced
but on the contrary has been largely
Increased. The burden of taxation has
In no degree been lessened. Not ono
measure has even been debated In
congress which would reduce taxa-
tion or Increase tho revenues. All
that that autocrat who Ignorant
people refer to lovingly as Uncle
Joe Cannon has dono hns been to
prevent any legislation which might
possibly help to keep tho money of
the peoplo In tho pockets of tho
people Instead of taking It from t.ieni
for tho benflt of the '.iust3 monop-
oly s -nd co-i irauons which ho
'i.o-t en phatlca'.ly rr i - t
Some Antl-Taft Statements.
Now that all tho delegates to tho
Chicago convention havo been i1op).
ed the antl-Tnft press bureau puts
out a statement which Is interesting
if not Instructive. It declares that
tlio 1 aft neon o nro claiming r.si
votes ninety-three more than a ma-
jority. Hut tho hostilities claim that
the number of contested votes w!
reach almost two hundred and tho
nun-1 art press agent goes on to
say that In the end there will bo
barely threo hundred votes for tho
secretary of war in the ennvnntlnn.
It is pleasing to rend what a lit
erary agent who presumably repre-
sents Mr. Fairbanks Mr. Foraker
Mr. Knox nnd other eminent repub-
lican statesmen has to say as to
tho methods of tho managers ot
the Taft campaign. "Tho realization
that tho Taft managers oven after
having procured tho assistance of
the cantalns of nrodalorv wonlth
havo been nble to push their candi
date over the line coupled with tlio
republican party's highly develop-
ed Instinct of self preservation will
help mako history in tlio nx(ti
thirty days. Tho fatal weak-
diss of the Taft candidacy Is that
it is an absolutely maehlno-mado
product not vitalized by popular
The Two-Thlrds Rule.
Probably no ono who has taken an
nctlvo Interest In the democratic
politics this year has failed to meet
rex.'atc(i Inquiries as to whether'
this pending natlonnl convention
would abrognto the two-thirds rulo
Ccr'alnly many such questions havo
been put to me. My own opinion
is that the two-thirds rulo In tho
convention Is ns absolutely un-domo-cratlc
as Is tho unit rulo In stato
delegations. The two-tulrds rulo Is
used as a corrective of tho unit
rule and the unit rulo Is maintain-
ed ns an excuse for tho two-thirds
rule Neither one exprussos tho will
of the voters who send delegates to a
convention. There inlht bo ninny Il-
lustrations of this fact but let mo
take a small one. Tho stato of
Hhodo I land has elected eight del-
egates to Denver of whom serven
nro well known to bo In favor of
Mr. Hryan. Shall not tho eighth man
have a chnnco to cast his vote If
not his constituency Is disfranchised
and ho might as well stay nt homo.
Now York rejoices In tho unit rule
nnd In tho convention of 1890 un-
der tho dominant control of tho
leader ot the delegation Its dele-
gates wero provented from olther
voting or bolting. Thoy sat In tho
convention without voice without In-
fluence soventy-elght men under the
absolute control ot ono. Mauy of them
were stirred by the outbur3t of dent-
ocratlc sentiment In tliat convention
but not one was permitted to raise
his voice to advance it. That is tho
unit rule carried to its logical con-
clusion. As to the two-thirds rule It simply
mentis that a candidate who Is the
choice ot the majority of the dem-
ocratic voters of the country and of
a majority of the deb-gates In tho
convention shall not he nominated
If a small minority made up par
tlally of conscientious opponents and
partly of purchnseable jiolltlelans can
tie up the action of the convention.
That Is not democratic. It is not
materia! In the convention um
which wo are about to enter for
the simple reason that Mr. Hryan will
have easily more than two-thirds of
the delegates there. Hut at the same
time It Is emphatically an undemo-
cratic rule and after this conven-
tion should be and probably will bo
permanently set aside.
The Tactics of Defeat.
Coventor Johnson Is not to bo
greatly complimented upon the meth-
ods of his managers. Thus far every
claim they have made has been dis-
proved in tho event. Hut that after
all In not so bad. Few politicians
can determine with accuracy tho
outcome of a liard-fought campaign.
Hut the managers oi the candidate
who hope for his nomination and
presumably desire IiIr election
should not adopt the tartlcs which
the gentlemen who apparently rep-
resent Mr. Johnson do. They were
beaten In Alabama easily by four
to one. They have been beaten In
every state In which the Issue of
Mr. Hryan'a candidacy has bixnt
raised except Coventor Johnson's
own state. They aro using with no
authority tho nniiiu or Judge Cray
ns that ot a colleague Judge Gray
has bis state and may probably
get a neighboring one. Hut as Gov-
ernor Johnson goes nbout the coun-
try saying that he Is a candidate
for himself nnd not one being used
merely to defeat Mr. Hryan's noml-
ntitlon. It does seem rather curious
that his salaried supporters aro
continually lumping together the
Gray vote and tho Johnson voto and
Insisting that with the assistance
of tho two-thirds rulo tho two to-
gether will defeat Mr. Hrynn.
And by tho way whence came tho
enormous amount of Johnson money
that was poured Into Alabama and Is
being spent now In every tftjato
which has yet to act?

TO CREATE NEW CITY
CONSOLIDATION OF NINE TOWNS
WILL CREATE NEW METROPO-
LIS COSMOPOLITAN CITY.
Caliiinet Mich.. May 2.". (Special)
Plans are under way hero to com
bine the village of Calumet with
eight other towns in Houghton coun-
ty Into a single city which will
have a population of r.O.Ono nnd will
be the third largest city In the state.
Petitions will bo circulated shortly
and If they are successful the matter
will be placed before tho peoplo of
the district for a vote.
The present project will consolidate
the scattered Interests of the copper
country and will create a new busi-
ness ond manufacturing center in tho
Upper Peninsula. Already a business
revival has set In. Tho improvements
planned or under way include a post-
olllce for Calumet several olllco build
ings for Hod Jacket and a series
of parkn for Red Jacket and Ixturluni.
Tlie Lac La Hello Traction and Pow
er company is pushing work on an
electric railroad through the heart
of the copper country from Calumet
to Mohawk and will soon begin an
extension from Mohawk to Lac Ii
Hello and other points In Keweenaw
county. Tho Keweenaw railroad Is ex
tending to Calumet and many of tho
old mines are being reopened.
Tho district In which the now cltv

unique. Thirty-nine different Innguages
are spoken In Calumet which nt
present Is tho largest lncororntcd
village in tho United States. Many
of the Finns Italians and Austrlans

fluence In the community.

NORTH CAROLINA PROHIBITION.
Special Election Will be Held Tomor-

Halelgn. N. C May 25. (Special)
Another state may Iw added to tho
totally "dry" area on the temper-
ance map as a result of the special
prohibition election to be held In
North Carolina tomorrow. While the
wets" hnve ninde a dosperate battle
It Is considered almost certain that
tlie prohibitionists will win a sweep-
ing victory and that nil of the sa-
loons In the Old North Staito will he
forced to close their doors on Jan-
uary 1 next when the new law will
So far as n considerable portion
of the stale Is concerned the paxsngo
of n prohibition measure will Involve
little chiiugo from present conditions.
Liquid rofrerhmonts of an nlcohollc
nature ore now legally obtainable In
but a score of the seventy counties
of North Carolina. This result has
been accomplished by tlio local op-
tion law under which all the Im-
portant cities of tho stato. except
Wilmington. Salisbury nnd Wlntoti-
Salem havo abolished saloons. Sev-
enteen countlPB now lime dlHpensa-
rles but those will bo put out of
htiHlnotirt by prohibition.
As In other sections of tlie south
the race question has played nil Im-
poitant part In the prohibition cam-
paign. It is alleged that crimes against
women havo become much less fre-
quent In oil Kirts of the south
where prohibition has been enforced
and that the trafllc In vile liquors
has been largely resimnslble for the
commission of such crimes.
That "respectable" whites will not
be forced to totally abstain from In-
toxicants under u prohibition reglmo
Is evidenced by the largo number of
prescriptions" which havo been fill
ed by druggists of the towns now
presumably "dry." Charlotte is point-
ed out ns tin example of this method
of evasion since nearly 10000 med
ical prescriptions for "boozo" mostly
In pint nnd quart quantities havo
been filled In the last year. The
"Jug houses" ot neighboring states
havo also served to ameliorate tho
arid condition In the ''dry" counties
nnd they will doubtless continue to
do tin even more flourishing business
