Taft has been, Jfor the most part, only spoken of in connection with Roosevelt and not" in connection with the..Presidency.. It has been a war of words and principles between Roose velt and a war of precedents and presidential dignity, etc., and Bryan was not found wanting in the conflict. Mr. Taft is rather a big man to completely hide but under the smoke of battle created by the big and has been nicely and snugly and decently concealed. Let .it be said in. compli- ment to the diplomacy and states- man-like tact of Bryan that this igr noring of Taft and open contest with Roosevelt was one of the finest moves in the wisdom of Solomon, could not have used the opportunity to better advantage. TJIEOD ORE HO 0 SE VELT Space will not permit an extended essay of the man politically. There are just a few things we ought not to forget. It was evident to Senator once High ilogul of the Republican" this fellow "Roosevelt" was a coming man ant that sooner or later he would be in the way of some of the pet scheme personal aggressivem-rfs of. Theodore Roosevelt. The Stick" has :cme into vigorous operation too aud woe unto those unfortunates who have to come in contact with it. Roosevelt is, a family-man, a big- hearted soul! He is the man of the hour, and during his regime no one else has been President of the United WILLIAM' HEJTRY TAFT The question as to who should be the Republican candidate for 1908 was largely if not entirely left to Roosevelt. It was, self-evident that it would be "Taft or to use abio in his character and work. As an orator he has no peers. Roose- velt is no rnaU-h lor him on the That famous speech in Chicago Convention has iinmortalizcd his name. His "Cross of Gold and Crown of Thorns" will be perpetuat- ed down through the vista' of ages. Just a common delegate, or Josh Billings would ,say, "Aa average he stepped into conven- tion and forth his party's Can- didate. Twice time Has been the standard bearer. Young lueti all over world are familiar m-ith that speech, which nwute Billy Bryan famous. And ever since that time he has been delivering speeches in all parts of the globe. Ask the people of 'Eastern Canada what they think of Bryan. Ask the people "oX transcontinental Europe they hink o'f him. No American is held in higher regard than he is.- Praise does not swell his vanity; does not crack his skull. One charac- teristic of Bryan's public address is that he speaks for hours with the greatest freedom and case and ap- parcnely. Jie never wearies his or tires .himself. This Js a. remark- able gift and one greatly to be desir- ed by platform men. In theology he ranks with the leading men; of the pulpit and discourses the scriptures the "same big grasp of ideas with which he treats politics.

He stubbornly and, stoutly re- fused. If the nomination could be Teddy's for the asking why not per- mit htm to name the candidate? This s what was done. Taft as secretary of the Navy and provisional governor of the Phillipine Islands had' ormed good and efficient service but t was a very small way compar- ed to the. responsibilities and duties of the president of the United States. His character was good and his rep- utation spotless. A Tew narrow-mind ed souls took occasion to find fault with "his "religious convictions but thank goodness their lugubrious cant was very short-lived. There was no thing "agin him." The greatest thing for him was the endorsement and recommendation of Theodore who was willing to abdicate his thron .or a bigger o course. In his public address Taft has mad a very poor show .alongside Bryan Whatever ability he may have ha been overlooked in the controversy disputes of the President and Bryan Then Senator Foraker, one of th ablest debaters in the land, was cal ed off the platform and his, speeche moral training and practice. Blessed with one of the most gifted and tal- ented women, in the land, his home is not only a haven of rest but a school for intellectual cultivation for world- wide dissemination. The best commendation that Bryan an possfuiy have-is the hatred of lonopolies.

Bryan stands to smash xnd bust the monopolies aud trusts and his friends assert that he will if hey will only give him half a show, during the silver issue some people night have been just a little dubious about placing the affairs of govern- ment in his hands.

His work in the] cancelled because he was mixed up i rolice Commission of JN'ew York little game cailed "GRArT." This the Civil Service Reform were suffi- cient to justify Platt's conclusion. He must he "let down easy." The lead- ing Republicans could very plainly BCO that he would have to be reckon- ed with at some time and so they de- vised a plan whereby they thought to relieved Taft of a very able worker. The one thing that will bear heavily against Taft at the present time is the business depression that prevails throughout the United States. Something must be radically wrong. Crops are good and yet ten million the Presidency or not, will continue to develop. Ho- may or may not he elected. He ought to, which is ano- ther thing. It is safe to say that his chances are better today than ever before in his political career. It will not lessen, the public estimation of Bryan if he fails -to occupy that snug little house whjch is in a B line down Avenue from the Capitol. THE ESTIMATES The New York Herald gives Taft a reasonably sure vote of 20-t and Bry. an 161. It requires 242 to elect a President seeing there are 483 votes in the Electoral College. Success Magazine gives as 'reasonably certain for Taft 298 with 11 probably Repub licnn. The weakness of the Success estimate is found in the fact that it gives Taft nearly all the Western ALBERTA'S FIRST STREET CAR -Edmonton, Oct. first'car of the municipal street car sys- tem, was operated today.

The Xcw York Herald places Xeur York in tho doubt list with Republican if this doubtful state could he swung Democratic then there would ba little chance for Taft. The seriously thv.ik- in.g Republicans arc forced to confess jthat New York is doubtful. .Tust what effect the Independent League t will have on Xew York be ascertained. Bryan is figuring on the prohibition vote to a large cx-j tent and this should be an advantage to him.
