John D. Rockefeller is home
aerain from a tour of EuroDe. In
an interview it would appear that
"Sanctimonious John" is at a
loss to understand why his coun
trymen think ill of him. Now, in
the matter of squeezing millions
of dollars out of his fellowmen
this old skinflint is not dense,
but the natural sentiments and
emotions of man are so foreign
to his make-up that it is impos
sible for him to comprehend
them, and for this reason he can
not see why the hearts of men
are cold to him.
But through it all this Shy
lock, this human octopus, despite
the railings of his home people,
says that he loves the United
States better than it would ever
be possible for him to love Eu
rope. This is not strange. In
this land of the free ( ?) it has
been possible for John to squeeze
more money out of the people
than he could hope to do in any
The United States makes it
possible for the greedy scoundrel
to force money from all classes.
rich and poor, and naturally in
the degree that he loves money
he loves that land which makes
it possible for him to acquire it
Therefore, it is natural to expect
that he should affect to forgive
his detractors and assume a love
for his mother land for money
their undertaking to Roosevelt
are completed, and until they
are this gentleman will likely act
as godfather for them.
It is quite likely that Roosevelt
will some day be president again.
Probably he is wise ' enough to
know that he can be elected
at some future time. When he
retires his successor will be lucky
if his administration does not
suffer in comparison with that of
Roosevelt. People would talk of
what Teddy did and what he
would do, and four years of this
would he all that would be neces
sary to elect him president again.
WILLIE GETS "NOMINA TED. "
HOW WISE IS TEDDY?
President Roosevelt has au
thorized a statement that his
message to the people on his
election two years ago is and
will continue to be in effect. The
message referred to is his declar
ation that under no circumstances
would he be a presidential can
didate in 1908. His latest state
ments emphasize this.
Teddy smashed all records
when he, as a former vice-president,
was elected to the presi
dency of the United States,
and his popularity with the mass
of the people is as great today as
it was two years ago. What will
he do when he retires? He is too
active, too full of life and stren
uosity, to retire to a life of
As he has already broken rec
ords it is to be expected that he
will continue to break them. It
is said that no man who has
been president of the United
States has later been elected a
senator. Yet it may be expected
that he will establish a new rec
ord after his present term of of
fice expires by being chosen to
represent his native state in the
upper house of congress.
There are so many public re
forms in progress, together with
public works of great magnitude,
that owe their inception to Pres
ident Roosevelt that it is but nat
ural to assume that he will con
tinue to be a great factor in pub
lic affairs for many years to
come. It will be a long time be
fore the public works which owe
Failing by a vote of four to one

Willie Randolph Hearst had him
self nominated" as an indeDen
dent candidate for " governor bv
the "plain people." In this in
stance the "plain people" con
sisted of a few of Willie's paid
leutenants, headed by a hireling
named Ihmsen, who met in a
ittle hallroom in the Gilsev
house and eulosrized their master
in meaningless or misleading
phrases. Such a bunch desig
nating themselves as the "d lain
people" is as ridiculous as the
amous three tailors of Tooley
street who began their petition
with the words, "We, the people
It is indeed surprising that
Hearst has succeeded in attract
ing the slightest attention as a
probable presidential candidate.
A small-bore politician, sadlv de
hcient in every quality lound in
a wise leader of men. he has used
the fortune left him by his father
to hire brainy writers to sound
his praises and political "soldiers
of fortune" to beat the tom-toms
when he pulled the string. It is
true that he was elected to con
gress from a New York district.

and a Happy Hooligan wearing

gahization could have been elect
ed at that time with hands down.
His only claim to political strength
is m the support of the radical
element of union labor men, and
in trying to drag labor oreraniza
tions into politics he proves, to
the minds of the ablest thinkers
on the subject, that he is doing
labor more harhi than good.
