We are for him and the whole State ought to be the same way THERE Is a great feeling of con fidence among the democratic members and senators who are assemb lipgin Washington this week They all believe that Ihe republican partyls about to demonstrate the people its inability to legislate for the Interests of any but a comparatively few capitalists and they are confident that the good sense of the American people will cause them to revolt and will result in a democratic laudslide in 904 There is no little anxiety among the repub licans themselves and particularly on the paity of the

of March If that Hindoo gamekeeper could measure the situation here he would doubtless say The republicans threaten a great deal but God will be mercifull to the trusts The Presidents advisers are fearful that his strong position on the trust question will but serve to emphasize the servitude of the republican majority to the trusts Between his swim conviction that the tariff is too high and his desire to avoid saying what his political advisers tell him will defeat his chances for nomination in 1904 President Roosevelt is experiencing what the French call a bad quarter of an hour Pres Mitchell and his union seek the privilege of saying who shall be at liberty to work Pres Baer and his associates desire to monopolize the material on which alone nonunion and union laborers can find
