TEDDY NOT FEARED
"IF HIS FIRST SPEECH IS ANY
INDICATION OF WHAT IS TO
COME IT IS AN ATTACK THAT
NEED NOT BE FEARED BY THE
Ex-President Roosevelt has com
menced his attack urjon President
Wilson's administration, but if his
hrst speech is any indication of what
is to come, it is an attack that need
not be feared. Those who listen to
him or read what he says will not
overlook the fact that he has a double
reason for being dissatisfied with the
present administration. The first rea
son is found in the fact that it was
President Wilson's Progressiveness
that sealed Mr. Roosevelt's fate in the
last campaign. If the Democratic
convention had followed the example
of the Chicago convention and nom
ated a reactionary, Mr. Rosevelt
might have been elected, but instead
of chosing a reactionary the conven
tion made the selection from among
the progresive candidates before the
convention and as a result Demor
racy came into power. The Demo
cratic party has made good, and it is
now so progresive that there is neith
er need nor room for another progres
sive party. The ex-President is not
quick to forgive those who have
thwarted his ambitions, and he has
his grievance against the President.
The second grevience is to be found
in the fact that he desires to be a can
didate again and he has no chance to
win so long as the country endorses
the course pursued by the Democrat
ic administration, When one reads a
criticism from Mr. Roosevelt, there
fore, it is well to bear these facts in
mind. He reminds one of the story ol
the lady who went into a dry roods
store to buy some calico to co'or Eas
ter eggs. In order to color the egps
it was necesary to select calico that
would fade, and when the clerk
showed her a piece of calico that he
thought suitable, she asked, "Are you
sure this will fade.
He replied, "Oh, yes, it will fade."
Just then the proprietor went by
andd rebuked the clerk saying, "No
that will not fade."
"But she WANTS it to fade," re
plied the clerk.
Mr. Roosevelt wants the Democrat
ic party to fail in its efforts to satis
fy the public. When he finds fault.the
wish is father to the thought.
His first point of atack is the tariff,
but he does not throw any light on
the subject. He is certain that the
plan employed by the Democrats in
reducing the tariff was a bad one,
but he is careful not to present a
plan, for the plan of leaving it to a
commission is not a plan at all. It is
simply an evasion, and not only an
evasion, but the one that has been
regularly employed by the protec
tionists whenever brought face to
face with the iniquities of a high
tariff. They are always sure that any
reduction made by the Democrats will
be disastrous, but whenever asked to
suggest a proper line of rducton,
they confess their ignorance of the
subject by asking that the work of
reduction be delegated to a commis
sion of experts. As these experts
have no power to legslate and can
only suggest, the commission plan is
futile. The members of Congress in
sist on determining the schedules
themselves, regardless of what the
commission wishes. A commission's
report is never quoted except when
it suports the views of the Congress
man quoting it
Mr. Roosevelt was in the presidency
seven and a half years and during
that time he never made any effort
to reduce the tariff. When he was
about to go out of office he confess
ed a necessity for tariff reduction
and his sucessor, President Taft, went
in on a platform promising tariff re
vision; but the revision was dictated
by the protected interests and there
fore was a failure,
Mr. Roosevelt's position on the
tariff gives no hope of tariff reduction
or even of the maintainance of the
present rates. The Democratic party
is the only party that dare to deny to
the "rotected interests the tribute
which they have collected under re
On the trust question Mr. Roose
velt's position is even weaker than on
the tariff. He attacks the Democratic
party because of its opposition to pri
vate monopoly. Mr. Roosevelt be
lieves in the regulation of monopoly
instead of the prevention of it. But
the country has seen enough of regu
lation and its most enlightening view
was obtained when Mr. Roosevelt was
President. It saw the monopolies regu
late him. More trusts were formed
under his administration than in any
similar period and he made no effort
to protect the public. And how can
he be expected to regulate trusts in
the future, when he takes one of the
most hard-hearted of the monopolists
as his campaign manager and offers
him to the public eye as the embodi
ment of progressive principles.
President Wilson is formulating his
anti-trust measures on the theory that I
"a private monopoly is indefensible
and intolerable." He is attempting to.
make a private monopoly impossible
in the United Mates. Ihere is no
other theory upon which a successful
attack can be made upon the trusts.
Mr. Roosevelt must think the Ameri
can people very confiding if he ex
pects them to join him in throwing
the protecting arms of the govern
ment around ' these conspiracies
against the public welfare. It is the
nature of a monopoly to prey upon the
public, that is the purpose of its ex
istance, and it cannot live unless it is
allowed to do so. A private monopo
ly is a violation of economic laws and
ts very life depends upon its secur
ing favors from the government. Its
plan of securing them is to elect those
who are to regulate it and by putting
them under obligation to it paralyze
the enforcement of the law.
Much more than half of Mr. Roose
velt's campaign fund of 1904 was
drawn from corporations. While these
corporations were not all trusts, it Is
Known tnat a great many of them
were beneficiaries of legislation and
no one can doubt that thev thought
they were buying immunity when they
contributed. And so with Mr. Roose
velt's campaign fund in 1912; it was
drawn almost entirely from a few par-
WHY SOUTHERN SOILS ARE
A Fine Climate and. Cheap. Labor
Have Made Land Skinning Possible
I notice in your issue of May 2 that
some member of the staff has the
nerve to tell the truth about Southern
soils under the heading "Southern
Soils are Poor But May be Made
Of course they are poor. No one
with good sense of observation ever
doubted it except he who was n Nled
by the orators. And why are tney
poor? Because of cheap labof and
because of certain climatic conditions
which, properly co-operateri with, vill
make fields fertile, but which ir p.-op-erly
operated with have rade our
fields infertile. The climatic condi
tions to which I allude are, first, the
long warm season during ihvh ilcray
goes on rapidly; and ecm-d, th:
abundant rainfall. The first changes
the organic matter fn form in
which it is both of use and in (lunger
of loss. The second makes it a loss
by washing it from the soil and by
washing the soil from the subsoil.
There has been practiced in he
South for years and years a spe.ie.1
of bonanza farming with the same
motto as in the North-west, "Get it
out of the land." This kind of farm
ing has been longer continued than in
the North-west because the soil and
climate together bear it longer. The
favorable climate has to some extent
obscured the real condition of the
soil from us. We have thought that
our soil was rich when in reality the
richness of late has been mostly .in
the climate, and the end of our bo
nanza farming has been reached be
fore we knew it.
With favorable climatic conditions
!n the South a given yield, say 20
bushels per acre of corn, indicates a
poorer soil than does the same yield
in the North. What then if our yield
has fallen below the Northern yield?
In some way our low yield must have
been more profitable else we would
have come to our senses before. And
such is the case.
While labor in the bonanza farm
ing of the North-west was always
high, labor in the South has always
been low. This has made a lower
yield profitable and a more complete
skinning of the land posible.
Let us summarize. Abundance of
rain, rapid decay of soil materials,
and cheap labor have together made
possible the profitable production of
ery low yields of cotton itself a
land crop on very poor land. And so
poor land has resulted in the natural
But who will say that we ought
not to have the rain or the long warm
season or the cheap labor? Surely
in these very things which have all
but proved our ruin we have the
means of developing an extremely
fertile soil. These conditions proper
ly co-operated with will build our
land up just as improperly operated
with they have torn it down. The first
class climatic conditions which the
South has, with first-class attention
to the soil, will certainly give rich
soil and large crops. The climate we
already have; the attention to the
soil is what the Progressive Farmer
preaches in every lsue.

so easily understood that it would be
a reflection upon the common sense of
of the common people to think that
they would give weight to Mr. Roose
velt s arguments on the subject.
In the Pittsburgh speech Mr. Roose
velt did not mention the most impor
tant measure for which the President
stands sponsor, namely, the new cur
rency law. It has proven a tremen
dous success. Mr. Roosevelt had more
than seven yetrs in which to do some'
thine on the rurrenrv nvipstinn. hut. hp
had no ideas on this subject except
cept those borrowed from the Wall
Street bankers, and he did not dare to
put these in the form of a law. No
wonder Mr. Roosevelt is silent on the
subject. But why did he not think of
some sucn plan : Why does he attack
a President who did successfully what
Kepuoiican Presidents have not ven
tured to undertake.
Mr. Roosevelt has at times denounc
ed the President's foreign policy, but
we will wait until he makes an attack
in detail before replying. The Presi
dent s ioreign policy is heartily aP'
proved by the nation. He has main
tained the nation's dignity and pro
tected the nation's rights, and yet he
has approached international ques
tions in the spirit of peace rather than
in the spirit of bluster and jingoism.
The ex-President may add to the
gaiety of the campaign but he will not
weaken President Wilsons strength

For a newspaper to print a "best
seller," a chapter or two to an issue,
is no journalistic novelty. Yet oddly
enough, the idea of publishing in
serial form the best seller of all best
sellers is an experiment so unusual
that it is attracting wide publicity.
If you haven't happened to notice the
statistics,you may not know that the
book which leads all others is the
Bible. Editor W. W. Folsom, of Hope,
Ark., is reprinting this Best of Books
in his Gazette, a chapter a week. To
date he has completed the publication
of the four Gospels, and the feature
has proved so popular that the other
day he notified the Little Rock Board
of Trade that if he lives long enough
(he is now 76) to reprint the New
Testament in its entirity he will then
begin to reprint it a second time.
NOT SO STRANGE AFTER LL
You may think it strange that so
many people are cured of stomach
trouble by Chamberlain's Tablets. You
would not, however, if you should
give them a trial. They strengthen
and invigorate the stoniatli and ena
ble it to perforin its functions natu
rally. Mrs. Rcsio Rish, Wabash, Ind.,
writes, "Nothing did me the least
good until I began using Chamber
lain's Tablets. It is decidedly the best
medicine for stomach trouble I have
ever used." For sale by all dealers.
