The Fifty-ninth congress was a Republican congress, $and all the great measures enacted by {it were Republican measures, origlnat- |ing with the Republicans and passed j^by Republican votes. There is still much to be done t o per­ fect the work begun by the Fifty-ninth '.'congress. Experience has demonstrat- >.ed that a Democratic congress cannot be depended upon to work out any great system of reform. No reform in administration or In legislation has ever come about under a Democratic regime. As at present constituted the Democratic party is made up of too many Isms to be safe in handling great questions of political economy. Two great questions will soon come up for legislation—a revision of the tariff and a remodeling of our currency sys­ tem. Twice since JL880 the Democrats have attempted tariff legislation, and twice the business of the country was brought to the verge of ruin and hun­ dreds of thbusands of workingmen were thrown out of employment. Twice within the last thirty years the Democratic party has set up its stand­ ard of monetary legislation. First it 'declared in favor of putting the'print­ ing presses to work in manufacturing greenbacks without limit aid. second, by declaring for the free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1. No evidence has been furnished that the party has recanted from its stand for fiat money. Is it safe to 'trust the party now? F. H.

My Information with resfcect to the Oklahoma system is. that it-is developing as might be ex­ pected. I have a correspondent who is intimately acquainted with the conditions In Oklahoma. In a letter of Sept. 22, 1908, In speaking of the effect of the guaranty of deposit law, he uses the following language: \Conditions in Oklahoma are growing worse than was ex­ pected on account of the recent decision there whereby it was •decided that Tbe bank commls,- 'iier'.haa' no right, to refua*_to . \ ^'^iioii *rtet..to\p i ii^ i «i, pr ^-i^ pwiing to organlie a ; bank.\ 'As' ,s; ^an';:ihstahce; in a town of less >£f than 500 people as riiany as four J ^fbanks have been organized. Ap- plication Is now in for the or- | ^ ganixatlon of a fourth bank in ;bne town of only 470 population. \Men whose past record proved them to be incompetent are en­ gaging in tho banking business and getting in control of banking institutions. I have knowledge of one instance where a man was engaged in business some years ago and failed. He went to an­ other town and engaged In the same line of business lu his wife's name, but conducted her affairs in such an unbusinesslike way that she failed. Some time afterward he went to Oklahoma territory and started a small state bank. bilt found he could not succeed and sold to other parties and left the territory. A few months ago, however, he re­ turned and started another state bank, advertising that the depos­ itors are secured under the state guaranty law, and after sixty days' operation he now has over £100,000 deposits. I have it from tho best authority that he now proposes to start fifteen new state banks throughout the state. » two of which have already been ^ organized and onp now doing $ business.\ <?' I Refused to Approve or Disapprove Findings of Military Tribunals Until Ho Had Carefully Read the Evi­ dence—A Case In Point. When he was secretary of war Mr. Taft never unreservedly trusted to the judgment of courts martial upon of-' fending officers' to determine his action in approving or disapproving the find­ ings of these military tribunals. He was scrupulous in Insisting that all the evidence should «be laid before him to be passed upon and weighed by him personally. No pressure of work could be too severe or lack of time too evi­ dent to prevent him from satisfying himself that exact justice had been done the accused, according to the evi­ dence and the facts. One evening long after the rest of the departments had closed Mr. Taft, at the end of an un­ usually hard day, took up a bundle of papers relating to the case of a lieu­ tenant who was sentenced to dls« missal. The chief of staff was there, and he suggested, with a view to sav­ ing Mr. Taft work: \I think that you will not need to go deeper into the case if you read the conclusion of the judge advocate's memorandum and my memorandum. The man Is a bad egg. The army will be better off with­ out him.\ \No said the secretary; \I always prefer to go through these cases my­ self.\ The officer had failed (o pay his debts.. Carefully and slowly Mr. Taft read the evidence through to the end. When he finished he looked up and ex­ claimed, \But be lied about it!\ Rap­ idly he dictated a note t o be sdnt, with the papers, to the president and con­ tinued as he laid them aside: \He tried, as he admits, to He out of it I think the sentence should be carried out There might have been some ex­ cuse for the other thing, but there could be none for the lie. It is time to stop this tendency among tbe offi­ cers who get into trouble. It must be discouraged for the honor of the serv­ ice. \I want to go over the rest of these myself,\ said he, indicating another pile of court martial papers.., \I have done that sort of thing all my life, and I'd rather do It than take the judg­ ment of some one else.\ BIG AND BROAD.

If all the Bryan theories —abandoned, present and possible- could be put Into practice, the United States would bo Russianized. The greater the prosperity of the wage earner the more jocund tho farm- ,er, whdse produce the wage earner buys. The Republican party Is the tried and proved friend of each. The greatest productiveness and therefore the greatest reward of or­ ganized labor aro directly in line with the policies of the Republican party. The gospel of Bryanlsm regarding those who dissent from Its dogmas be­ gins, \With charity for none, with malice toward all,\ etc. Methodists Indorse the Candi­ dacy of William H. Taft. An unqualified approval of . William H. Taft as a presiden­ tial candidate was ^given by the Re v., James Coote, D.- D., pastor^ £fi:fa&jp6^tfptiii&&>X ctiurcn' 1 ' In Thompsohville, Conn., when he called at tbe headquarters of the Republican national commit­ tee. For years Dr. Cooto has taken a prominent part In Meth­ odist circles In New England and in New York, having been a presiding elder and occupied leading pulpits. \No man has spoken so ear­ nestly in favor of the great work that Christian missions are do­ ing in the Philippines, In China and In the orient generally as Mr. Taft,\ said Mr. Coote. \In an address at Yale university he emphasized that idea particular­ ly, and on several other occa­ sions he spoke enthusiastically of the good being done by ag­ gressive Christian evangelicalism in the different countries which he visited. It seems to me that no evangelical Christian should hesitate to support Judge Taft. He Is just as big and broad In his religious ideas as he Is In his physical proportions. He can be trusted to do what is fair and right with all denominations. \I am convinced that what Judge Taft has said on religious matters was not for political ef­ fect. He has gone hither and thither doing the work before him, and at the same time his keen observation and his sense of fairness have led him repeat­ edly to give expression to his appreciation of the work of Christian missions everywhere. \In Tbompsonvllle is one of the largest carpet manufactur­ ing plants In the world,\ con­ tinued Dr. Coote. \During the last Democratic administration that establishment was com­ pelled to close, and the thou­ sands of employees were thrown out of work A very large pro­ portion of those had to leave the town My observation Is that the people In that section of the country remember that experi­ ence and that they do not care for another administration that Is likely to result so disastrous­ ly\ Filipinos Welcomed to His Table and to Other 8oei»l Functions—Rich and Poor Alike Were tho Objects of His 8olicitude, After Mr. Taft assumed charge of the Philippines there was no color line •o far as he was concerned. There had been one for centuries. The Span- lards introduced it. The Spaniard would not permit even a suggestion of social equality between him and the Filipinos, although in intelligence, breeding, education • and attributes which constitute manliness the upper class Filipino Is fully on a par with the Spaniard or American. Mr. Taft's first care in the prosecu­ tion of his \policy of attraction\ in the Philippines was to demolish the color - line. Leading Filipinos were bidden to dinner and to other social affairs at his home, and their wives and (laugh­ ters were asked to stand on the re­ ceiving line with Mrs. Taft. At din­ ners Mr. Taft invariably took in the leading Filipino woman. He did not martyr himself In so doing, either, for the Filipino women are bright, viva- clous and possessed of a keen sense of humor, which last quality alone would insure their getting on well with Mr. Taft So far as he could Mr. Taft be­ came one of the people.' A man who accompanied him on his first tour of the islands tells of having seen Mr. Taft in close conference with a young Filipino lawyer, who, when he quit Mr. Taft's side, left with him a piece of paper covered with diagrams. The secret came out the next night at the ball, which Invariably formed a con­ spicuous part of the ceremonious en­ tertainments. The ball was opened with the rigadon, or Spanish quadrille. It is a more complicated dance th«n our quadrille, and the figures are not called out Mr. Taft, to the surprise of his companions, stepped off with the wife of the presidente and led her through the quadrille without a mis­ take. He kept his eyes fairly closely glued to a bit of paper. It was the- same that the lawyer had left him and upon which he had drawn a dia­ gram of the figures of the rigadon for the instruction of the governor. In his office and at all times Mr. Taft received the poorest as well as the richest and most Influential Fili­ pino. An American contractor tells of having waited in Mr. Taft's anteroom for an hour while he explained to an old Filipino woman what' measures she should take to obtain a balance of $1 which, she asserted, the govern­ ment owed her on an unsettled claim. Had he not met the Filipinos on such grounds of equality Mr. Taft could never have so successfully striven with [-the problem in the Philippines. He Jha ^Jo. haVj the help'of the,' FlliDlnoaV ' and he 'obtained ?if by'making friends, of them. To oppose revision of the tariff by the believers In protection to Ameri­ can wage earners and industries might be to invite Its revision by Democratic believers in Importing tbe products of cheap foreign labor. RESTORING CONFIDENCE. Country Impressed With Utter­ ances of Judge >Taft. Judge Taft has steadily grown on the country since his nomina­ tion. His judicial poise, his so­ briety of utterance and his atti­ tude of deep responsibility have all impressed the country. They are what is wanted to give con­ fidence in a period of doubt and depression. S. M. Felton, president of the Mexican Central railroad, who was one of Mr. Taft's visitors last week, said in an interview: \In my judgment the election of Mr. Taft is of the utmost Impor- .tance to railroad men as a class, because it means the restoration of confidence, which is necessary before we can hope for a perma­ nent revival of business. The great trouble with the railroads has been their inability to raise the necessary money with which to carry on extensions and im­ provements. To get this money there must be confidence on the part of tho Investing public, and this confidence will certainly be secured by the election of Judge Taft.\ The campaign hus reached the point where it is wise to make the personality of Mr. Taft known and familiar over the country. The campaign is marked by its sober discussion and the manifest movement of the great current of public opinion toward a conservative desire to see the great issues now opening handled with care, consideration and a judicial scrutiny Judge Tnft Is a man of action, combative and aggressive He appeals to the precise conditions of the campaign. He has the qualities which draw men to him in times like these. The speeclimnking campaignon which lie recently entered will not only \\ in votes by arousing public interest, but it will add to the strength of the Republican party In every doubtfol stato he visits by showing the people a man they can trust >^S>$xSx3xSxH*Sx$*S><3><S><^^ Nevertheless, friends and brethren. It must be admitted that for twelve years Mr. Bryan's voice has constant­ ly vib-ated for his native land. Prosperity dwells with tho America** people, who aro not going to turn it out at the door t o make way for Bry­ anlsm
