The end will com quicker and Just
as certain if Roosevelt is elected, for
he is no longer a Republican, but ia-
the leader of a new party, at war with
the Republican partyt as 'it is with the
Democratic party. On the other hand,
if Wilson is elected the Roosevelt par

reorganize their party, purge it of the
baneful influence of corporate power
and greed and make it again the
grand old party it was in the days of
To grasp these pregnant facts we
Jiave only to recall a little modern his
tory. In 1904 Mr. Roosevelt had his
bureau of corporations in working or-

(of it as secretary of commerce and la
bor, had been made chairman of the
(national Republican committee. He
tend Cornelius N. Bliss, treasurer, wera
collecting money. As George R. Shel
don, Mr. Bits' successor, says, .73
per cent, of the funds received came
prom the menaced corporations.
If we do not find in these disclosures
fa, sufficient explanation of J. P. Morgan
& Co.'s "especial interest" in Mr.
Roosevelt s election, it is possible that
Hater events may reveal it.
Mr. Roosevelt never prosecuted J. P.
Jlorgan & Co.'s steel trust He em-
tptically stopped the proceedings in
atituted by others against J. P. Morgan
& Co's harvester trust When the
Ipanio of 1907 was at its height he turn
fed the resources of the treasury over
to J. P. Morgan & Co., who used them
and made money and reputation by the
process. He met Gary and Frick, rep
resenting JT. P. Morgan & Co.'s' steel
trust, before breakfast one morning
and licensed them, in violation of law,
to absorb the Tennessee Coal and Iron
company, thus giving J. P. Morgan &
Co's steel trust a monopoly of high
grade iron ore. He put Mr. Bacon, a
ttrtner of J. P. Morgan & Co., into the
ffetate department and, the diplomatio
icrvice. He jnade Herbert Satterlee,
J. P. Morgan's son-in-law, assistant
aecretary of the- navy. In a letter to
Attorney General Bonaparte he testi
fied feelingly to the virtues of the
"Morgan interests which have been so
friendly to us." Never before was the
"publio welfare" so cheaply protected.
Extent of Morgan's Interest.
The "Morgan interests" are not con
fined to J. P. Morgan & Co. by any
means. The Morgan interests compre
head life insurance companies, banks
and trust companies, railroads and
manufacturing enterprises. If the par
ent house increased its regular Repub
lican contribution in 1904 because of
especial interest" we may easily
glue that the policy was widely
tated by affiliated corporations and
ftndividuals. Perhaps in this almost un
exampled favor by the Morgan inter
lasts we shall find an explanation of
ethe Roosevelt administration hostility
fco the Standard Oil interests, which
mare not always agreed with J. P.
Morgan & Co. concerning "the welfare
jof the public."
L It may be that the senate committee
hrtfl. be able to throw more light on
this point, but it can hardly add any
thing to the scandal of the Morgan
Roosevelt alliance. It was Mr. Roose-
t who opened up to J. Pr Morgan
Co. the possibilities of government
big. business. It was Mr. Roosevelt
ho persuaded J. P. Morgan. & Co. to
unge deeply into politics. It was Mr.
sevelt who, consulting "the public
Ware," registered the decrees of J.
Morsran & Co. In the White House.
Not until Mr. Roosevelt had loBt con
trol of the Republican machinery and
cie w providing for publicity of cam
paign contributions had gone into ef-
. teot did J. P. Morgan & Co. disappear
from the list of regular contributors to
the colossal corruption funds of the
Republican party. ,Are J. P. Morgan

tion the greatest production of .its
kind ever seen in America.
The world's most skillful scenic
artists, customers, property-makers,
chorus directors and stage
managers were engaged to mount
the production. A stage bigger
than a hundred ordinary theatres
was built and made portable so
that it can be conveyed from towt
to town and erected eacb morning
in the main tent. Thus the cir
cus proprietors have made it pos
sible for those who live in con
tributory towns as well as in the
large cities to see this magnificent
wordless play with its oast of 1.-
P0OO obaracters, a ballet of 300
dancing girls, a grand opera cho
rus of 490 voices, 600 horees and a
train load of speoial scenery, cos
tumes, properties and meohanical
devices for producing such stage,

Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, wife of the new leader of Democracy and prob
able next mistress of the White House, is perhaps the. moBt interesting wom
an in the United States today. This is inevitable not because she wishes
it. for she dos not and is as firm as a rock in. her conviction that being the
wife of a public man does not necessitate nor'call for a. woman's becoming
a publicity seeker. She successfully resisted all appeals of photographers
and interviewers until Mr. Wilson's nomination .as Democratic candidate
for the presidency was un fait accompli. This modesty is easily traced to
her soujthern ancestry and training and Is characteristic also of her distin
She was born EHen Louise Axson, daughter of a Presbyterian divine of
Savannah, Ga., whose family, so far as he knows, is the only one of "the
name in America.
Like Mr. Wilson, she has one brother and one sister living, all in the
same literary circle as the doctor and herself.
In this atmosphere of learning Mrs. Wilson -could hardly be expected to
be other than she Is widely read, broad-minded and charitable, devoted to
her home and the principles for which it stands.
She has marked ability as an artist, and it is said that a portrait painter
of ability was sppiled when she married the young barrister who had then
given up the practice of his profession to specialize on the subject that has
made him a-presidential nominee.
Mrs. Wilson's three daughters Misses Margaret Woodrow Wilson, Jes
sie Woodrow Wilson and Eleanor Randolph Wilson possess the mental
characteristics of their father and their mother's artistic temperament, com
bined in such a way as to give zest to every moment of their lives and pro
tection from the foibles of the world. Thy form, indeed, an ideal family
circle, one that it would be well for every American household to emulate.
