ROOSEVELT IN THE CAMPAIGN.
Casting to the winds the dignity of
the high office he holds. President
Roosevelt has broken into the cam-
paign in true frontier style—a style
that suggests the man who Is supplied
with a large pair of spurs and a bottle
of bad whiskey. He has done this
because he realizes that the Republi-
can campaign has for weeks been in
a demoralized condition, that the party
leaders have been stunned by the For-
aker revelations, and above all else
that Taft has proved his inability to
fight his own battle', and must have
help or be overwhelmed In the elec-
It is now known that it was Presi-
dent Roosevelt who insisted upon Taft
taking the stump and there “pitch
Into Bryan,” a task which he is un-
able to undertake successfully. The
Republican leaders knew that Taft
would not be able to cope with. Bryan
in a debate before the people and they
advised against his making a tour of
the country and thus afford the pub-
lic an opportunity to compare his in-
tellectual qualities with those of his
Democratic opponent.. The Republi-
can managers also know that Taft’s
greatest weakness in the West and
the whole country for that matter, lies
in the fact that thousands of Repub
Ucan voter* regard him as the crea
ture of Roosevelt, a “proxy” candidate
who seems unable to take care of
himself and must be continually
vouched for by the man who forced
him on the Republican parly and is
now trying to compel the American
people to accept him as their Presi-
The president’s recent manifes-
toes from Oster Bay and the
White House have left no
doubt in the minds of the pub-
lic that he has assumed active man-
agement of the Republican campaign,
and will hold the front of the stage
until the contest ends. The party
leaders in the West, however, are
dreading the effect of the plan of bat-
tle he has directed Taft to follow.
They are advising that no attacks be
made on Bryan, and are saying that
If Taft undertakes to convince the
Western people that Bryan is a dan-
the tariff discussed; they want to
know about campaign contributions;
they are greatly Interested in the bank
deposit guaranty issue, and want to
hear Mr. Taft on these subjects. They
want especially some assurance that
the trusts are not' backing the Re-
publican campaign. It would be fool-
ish to deceive ourselves into believing
that Mr. Bryan’s speeches have not
made a deep Impression. Mr. Taft
must answer them, not content him-
self by declaring that Bryan is a me-
nace to prosperity—that will not do
at all. Bryan has revealed the ker-
nel of that'sort of campaign by saying:
“You cannot scare a man who is sleep-
ing on the floor by telling him he is
about to lose his bed."
President Roosevelt, however, at-
taches no value to the advice of the
Western leaders of his party, and has
instructed his candidate to raise ca-
lamity howls, wherever he goes and
to picture the “disaster and ruin” that
will come upon the country if Bryan
is elected.—New Orleans States.
Teddy hasn’t waited for Taft to ask
if he had a minute to spare, but has
Jumped into the campaign and taken
hold of the reins of the Republican
party with hopes of saving the G. O.
