SAYS TAFT MAN FOR PRESIDENT 4. tland Man Says Better oose With Taft Than V flth Roosevelt Oregonian : Oplniona are divided Jon tbe outcome of tbe election of Presi dent since the nomination of Taft was announced. On tbe streets many say that Roosevelt waa robbed of atates that belonged to biro, and that the out come will be a Democratic President, William O'Donnell, a retired Portland attorney and lumber manufacturer, takes an optimistic view of tbe eitan tion. "It would be better to lose with Taft than ot win with Roosevelt," aaid Mr. O'Donnell, "aa It would bave disrupted tbe Republican party bad Roosevelt been nominated. "Roosevelt will divide tbe vote of tbe Democrats as much as that of th Republicans. Taft wilt win because only 40 per cent of the Republican par ty voted at tbe primaries and the other 60 per cent atay at borne vote will be straight Republican. "Roosevelt Wba backed by a Morgan banker, beef trust man and other moneyed interests. Taft will be help ed in tbe November election by that fact and because Penrose and other bosses did not want bim. Tbey bad to select him to defeat Roosevelt cecaue bia record was clean. "Heney and Johnson did more to hurt Roosevelt than any two men of Taft'a did. "Tbe Democratic convention probab ly will atampede to Bryan in obtaining a progressive Democrat. "Roosevelt said tbnt Taft and Root were the two best men in bis cabinet and awarded both with positions of highest bonor. If tbey are as bad aa be makea out at present, why should be be allowed to select another Cabinet and perhaps make similar mistakes? "That the Democratic party is not competent to rule baa been shown. More people were fed by charity dur ing Cleveland's administration than in tbe 60 years of Republican administra tions which preceded." FRUITllPlW NEEDS MENTION Product Should be Thinn ed to Insure Quality and Safety of Trees Fruit growers should soon attend to tbe matter of thining out fruit now on the trees. Some fruit men have been quoted as saying the proper way of cutting out excessive apples is to thin them out to six inches apart. It would seem that hearty treea would be able to bear more fruit than tbis method would leave. Tbe trees this year are more heavily laden with fruit than tbey bave been in years. Thia partially is due from us escaping - any irosts in tbe early spring wnicn sometimes destroys some of the blos soms. AH fruit is now sutncientiy ad vanced to be out of danger of any frosts, and it is taking such shape that it requlrea considerable sap to sustain it. Any excessive fruit is now a detri ment and should be cut off tbe limb. There are so many young trees that just begin bearing this year, too heav ly loaded with fruit and growers should be careful about this aa the limba are weak and a heavy crop will damage: their trees. We bave a wonderful ooportuhity thia season to test what can be done here in the hardier fruit line and farm ers should take advantage of it by giv ing the industry the proper care and experiment on thinnig out choice speci mens and produce some samples to send away tor exhibition.
