Washington, D. C, Nov. 14, 11 1.
The discussion in political circles
here during the past week has been
interesting and amusing, even if not
instructive. The Democraltc politic
ians were all expecting to see a
"Democratic landslide," and were
preparing to start a great whoop for
the next national campaign. It has
been very amusing to hear the vari
ous explanations that Democrats
from every part of the country have
been trying to give as to why the
Democratic landslide did not happen.
About the only enthusiasm that
any Democrat has been able to ex
press has been in pointing to what
they call the big Democratic victory
in Kentucky. It is true that that
State has a Republican Governor, and
that last week it elected a Democratic
Governor by about twenty-five thou
sand majority. This, however, is the
normal Democratic majority in that
State. As every one knows, a Re
publican Governor was elected there
at the last election before this one oa

Democratic party. ;

who appealed to the people to give

was turned down by a big majority.

President Taft and His Message.
President Taft has returned from
his great Western trip and is now
busy at work on his message. He is
very much pleased at the receptions
which he received. The contents of
the message have been pretty clearly
outlined by the President in the
speeches he has been making for
the last few weeks. He will stand
squarely for upholding and enforcing
the Sherman anti-trust law as it is.
He will strenuously oppose the effort
which is being organized by Wall
Street and the trusts to try to have
the Sherman law repealed.
In this connection, it is interesting
to note that President Taft has not
only carried on successfully all the
trust prosecutions started by Presi
dent Roosevelt, but that he has in
augurated, during the first two years
of his administration, eighteen civil
suits against the big trusts, including
the Tobacco Trust, the Standard Oil
Trust and the Steel , Trust, and has
instituted sixteen criminal cases
against the heads of trnsts. Indeed,
his record up to date ; has almost
equalled the records of the whole ad
ministration of President Roosevelt.
During President Roosevelt's admin
istration he started eighteen civil
suits, the ; same number - that Presi
dent Taft has started, and also Insti
tuted twenty-five criminal actions un
der the Sherman law. V : f
The Report of the Tariff Board.
The next most important question
which the President will discuss in
his annual message, or in a special
message will be the facts reported by
the tariff board giving the differ
ence in the cost of production In this
This also confirms what The Cau
casian has repeatedly charged, and
that is, that the remnants of the old
referee patronage machine in North
Carolina did not loyally support Mr.
Morehead and the Republican party
in the last election, but that they
wanted the party vote to be small, so
as to make it apepar that Mr. More
head had not made good.
A day of reckoning for such as this
will soon come.
