IMPOllTAWCE OF TKXJKT QUESTION.
Whatevei' President Taft may have to say
on trusts, to which It Is said he will con-
flno his forthcoming message. U must be ad-
mitted by well-lntormed persons that In doing
ao ho Is devoting his attention to the subject
which la Junt now moat on the minds of the
American people. Tho American Banker Bays.
"Today the trust qucatlon la in the same situ-
ation aa the slavery issue in a decade before the
Civil war. It has reached tho point where It Is
tho one question of the day, and it will be the
oentral issue of political controversy until a final
settlement la obtained. What that settlement
may be no man can tell, and It behooves those
who have largo interests to protect to exercise all
the dlacernment which they possess In order to
avoid the consequences of possible mistakes. In
times of great excitement such aa prevailed in
I860, men may become a prey to evil passlona,
and may be led Into courses fraught with untold
mischief to their country.
"The next five years in American history are
un epoch during which wise and moderate coun-
sels should prevail, and all should remember that
it la far better to remedy political, commercial
and Industrial Ills by legislation rather than by
appeals to force. The coming aeaalon of the

AK TO WHAT ROOSEVELT MIGHT BO.
The New York Globe says that the country
laces a protracted period of "Teddy Will and
Teddy Won't," and, after speculating on prob-
able turnes of the 'I on, concludes:
"Mr. Roosevelt is in it a candidate now. He
has no expectation of being a candidate next
year. To state so most emphatically is as far as
Mr. Roosevelt may be expected to go. It is dis-
claimer enough to satisfy the fair-minded. As
to what would be his answer if a universal de-
mand for him should arise next year, it Is not
I'alr to ask him to say. The condition has not
arisen, and It Is not likely to arise. He probably
does not know what would be his answer. Now
the likelihood is strong that it would be 'no";
but, as Lincoln was fond of saying, no man may
be justly asked to say before he has reached it
whether he will or will not cross a particular

With the Oklahoma Editorg
We have a charity organization to which we
have rightly committed the work of the commu-
nity, but let us not forget that no organization
can ever wholly supplant personal service. There
is always a place for individual effort, as no or-
ganization can ever reach all eases.
There are needy people who would scorn
to apply to the society suid who would resent it
if assistance were ottered to them. In such
cases only personal touch, Intimately acquainted
with the needs can be successfully applied.
Look around you as the Thanksgiving season
approaches and search out the families where
with the delicate personal hand of genuine sym-
pathy and hclpfulnrsn you can bring happiness
by administering to human needs without bring-
ing humiliation. In no other way can you bet-
ter show your gratitude for the bleasings you en-

Tho personnel of that delegation is of small con-

ready to accept instructions for Wilson and cirry
them out In the event of a Wilson majority in
the state convention, we would still be In favor
of making him one of the delegates-at-large.
But If the governor really seeks to control the

ple the consideration of letting them know where
he stands. If he really set Ks under such clrcuin-
