been fought the victory won and so overwhelmingly in favor of Taft and what he represents that there is uo room for a squabble over doubtful states as was the case in the HaysTilden campaign of i876 In the defeat of Win Jennings Brvan there is no ground far exultation anywheie He stands for the noblest type of American citizenship It does not follow that because he has been defeated any principle of popular gqven ment has suffered defeat On the contrary the main principle the underlying principle of a gpvern ment of tht people bv the people for the people ofwhich he is a staunch exponent was tever more clearly set forth than in the pres ent campaign Nor is Mr Bran anymore the exponent of tht principle than Theodore Roosevelt Whether the presidentelect Will lam Howard Taft shall be strongel than the leaders in the national assembly opposed to the reforms proposed and set in motion by his predecessor remains to be seen Whether or not Wm H Taft can cause a revision of the tariff as he has promised also remains to be put to the test It would be preposterous to suppose that any adjustment of the tariff tup or down will meet the approval of the extremists on eithei side nor that will exactly suit both factions in either side nor that will reconcile nor that will exactly suit both factions in either party There will be difference of opinion on this question as on every other topic in our national politics and the honest convictions of the leaders in politics usually formulate these differences and make them principal elements in national politic arid party plat forms Around these planks as ticy are called with the leaders standing on them are waged the political battles fierce and strong and any arguement that has any semblance of truth and some that have none are injected into the speeches and campaign litetature for all they are worth So the result is in almost every election we have a campaign of education that reaches the humblest and leist informed voter in the country in some measure while the people who can read and think for them selves may choose as between the policies of the various parties now representedThe remarkable part of the campaign just closed is the fact of such similarity in the policy out lined in the national platform of the two great parties respectively Toomuch space would be required to give in detail the agreement or differences of the two platforms only in a general way to affirm that practically the Democratic platform and Mr Bryan in his speeahes pledged the good faith of the Democratic party to carry out the most im portant oi the reforms begun by the Republican party under McKinleys and Roosevelts administration Whether or not the laws pertaining to interstate commerce are just and wise remains to be seen Whether the combination of capital called Trust is an unmixed evil has not been proven It is not denied it cannot be successfully denied that the corporations have enabled the public to secure better articles and cheaper according to quality than was possible jn the good old times It cannot be denied that under the Protective system the United States has become the leading nation in agriculture manufactures and commerce and a world power look ed up to and respected bv every nation on the globe It does not follow however that the same result might pot have been attained in some other way under democratic rule The pi ogress of the United States since their independence and consolidation into a Federal government has been onward and upward and if you please the greatest expansion as a result of war occurred under democratic administration and next to the Louisiana burchas a peaceable transaction the greatest expansive movement itshistory In closing this subject it may be said t1atnot withstanding the defeat of Mr Bryan there was no defeat to what ever principle he edvocated that was vital to interests of American citizenship Since his first campaign great changes have arisen in American politics amounting to a revolution in which the masses led chiefly by President Roosevelt are arrayed against the monopolistic tendencies of various combinations of capital designated by him as predatory wealth or the combination of c ipital in restriction oftrade The department of commerce and labor has been created and with it the great question regulating inter state commerce A question practically new in our history no wonder then that men differ in de gree and manner of meeting these great questions affecting the inter ests of every citizen ot the nation Aside from home half truths circu fated for the purpose of defeating 61 insuring the election of either the campaign was remarkably free from personal abuse and vituperation headed as each ticket was by grand men honest men either ofwhich would make an honorable respectable president of the great est and grandest nation on earth Hurrah for our free country God save our presidents Let us have peace- J W VANWINKLE HOW IS YOUR DIGESTION Mrs Mary Dowling of No 228 8th Ave San Francisco recom mends a remedy for stomach trouble She says Gratitude for the wonderful effect of Electric

United States Circuit Court of Appeals sitting at New York that the American Tobacco Company is a combination in restraint of trade is the biggest thing yet accomplish ed by the Government in its fight on corporations that make a prac tice of violating the Sherman act The case is still to go to the Su preme Court there to be decided on the law and the evidence for despite Mr Roosevelts efforts to destroy popular confidence in the integrity of that court belief that it will weigh fairlv and decide justly has not been shaken The hope however that the Supreme Court will sustain the derision of the Circuit Court seems not un reasonable The case against the American Tobacco Company has been prepared and argued by Mr Reynolds for the Government with less of a desire to make political capital than to establish his con tention in the minds of the Judges that the tobacco trust is operating restraint of trade Iilnosection ofthe country will the further progress of the countrv will the further
