What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

In a total vote in,thrrepublican primaries of about 300,000, Penrose had practically 100,000 majority: So the old stiindpatters are in control in Pennsylvania so far' as the 'republican organizatien is in control.

In addition to .this the progressives have nominated Gifford Pinchot for senate, aml-sf.7411-will-de-a power to elect him, and in Repre- sentative A.

Beeoth- . ing specific One day in his statement, he declared that, the Sharpies' Sepa- rater company, it' big concern of West Chester, Pa., would .be forced to - close dewn its plafitand move to -Germany because of the democratic tariff law. Now,, the Sharpies people are ultra - stand pat republicans; their factory was one of the concerns which, it was charged_in 1908, thOe4ene41-440-4sm-- ployes with dismissal if they. failed - to vote for Taft; but they are never- theless good business men. Not low ago the Sharpies company issued a circular which, without intending to do so, of course, gave the lie direct to Penrose; This circular said: .) \Our factory is now running until 10 o'clock each night in order to make quick delivery. Business very, good, which is true of a large number of dealers .who handle our line.\ •• • Since then the Pennsylvania po- litical pulpit orator has had nothing to say about the Sharpies company moving its plant to (Lemany, but he has continued to -make --assertions equally as far, from the truth. In Ohio former Senator Joseph B. Foraker has thrown his hat into, the ring by announcing himself as a can- didate for the senate to succeed Sen- ator Burton, who is a republican and! whose 'term expires on the fourth of senator ,Burtot saw the republican complications in his state long ago ; and apnounced that he would not. be a bandidata to sec- ceed himself. His action brought to the surface of the rePubilcan political sea in the Buckeye state several as- pirants who had been inundated by the democratic wave and they have been making grasps at the senaterial, straw, but since Foraker put his heal above the water they have nearly, all ...diaappeared. So, in Ohio, as in New - York and Pennsylvania, has, the old reactionary element come to the front - in the republican organization, for among all og them there is none Who can stand patter thin 'Tire Alarm\ Feraker. He is withal the ableira the aggregation, and - a past grand marshal of the old guard. In Illinois, \Uncle Joe\ Cannon, un- daunted by his defeat two years ago, has announced that he will try it again and endeavor to cdrne back. As to Uncle Joe's qualifications for mem- bership in the old guard no comment is needed. . Representative -William B. NicEinlev, erstwhile man- ager of Taft's preconvention cam- paign ahd former chairman of the re- publican congressional committee, is ahother who 'will - seek congressional honors again,' . • - -In South Dakota •Representative Charles H. Burke, pronounced stand - patter, has already defeated Senator Goa I. Crawford, -progressive, repub- lican; for the republican nomination _for the senate.' In Washington Senator Wesley L. Jones, standpatter, is seeking reelec- tion and has the inside track for the republican nomination. In Utah, Senator Reed Smoot, arch reactionary, is,the only candidate for the 'republican nomination for the senate. ' So it is that from one end of the country to the other the meiribers of the old guard are pressing forward and seeking prominence in republi- can councils. In fact, they have all but gotten control of the party or- ganization in most of the states, and a republican victory accordingly means_ a return to the old policies against which the country so long fought and finally succeeded in oust- ing. UNCLE SAM'S REVENUE. A good many editors and politicians of the opposition party who have been, wasting ink and breath in deploring the failure of the new tariff and tli9 goveenment's fiscal policy as a reve- nue producer must feel a little cheep at the financial statement of the gov- ernment, made during the last day or two, says --The Great Falls Tribune. The fiscal year of Uncle Sam ends June 30, and the revenues for the fis- cal year exceed the ordinary. expend-. Sures by thirty millions. The total amount is a trifle more than Chair- man Underwood estimated. The in- ternal revenue from whiskey dropped off some because the people of the United States, for some reilson, did not drink so much 'whiskey last -year as they did the year before. This in somewhat singular because there has been a steady increase in the con- sumption of liquors in recent years in this country. However, they drank more beer than they did the -year -be- fore, so the net falling off in reve- nue from malt and spirituous liquors NEWS OF WASHINGTON Representative Tom Stout's Interesting Letter Full of Capitol News DEMOCRACY MAKING GOOD Republicans Finding Little Chance to Make Political Medicine -Presi- dent Wilson Proves His' Ability its a Great and Successful Leader. • Washington, D. p., June 30, , 1914. Although members of the house will vote for bills appropriating a hundred million for the army and one hundred fifty million 'for the • navy with the utmost nonchalence, they always have trouble, and lots of it, when it comes to voting for the mile- age which they appropriate for them- selves. Something like half a century ago congress fixed twenty cents a mile both going and coming, as a rea sonable compensation for members' traveling expenses, between their homes and the national capitol. All succeeding congresses have held to those figures although, in recent years, strenuous efforts have been made at each session to, reduce_ i We are right now in the midst of one of these biennial mileage fights and. for an innocent by stander, the controversy must present an amusing aspect. There are several angles to the question. Congressman Carlin of VInginia. is of the opinion that the m eage - is too hig and s duced. Carlin is a fine Allow, a reg- ular statesman, but his views on the mileage question may be a trifle warped by reason of the fact that he resides just across the Potomac river and not more than seven miles from He occen0a.A, strati position, as it were, for waging a re- lentless warfare againit what Is sometimes:referred to as the mileage \grab.\ He could get along 'very well without triiliage slice with him, it amounts to only $3.80. But to the fellows wild live two or three thbu- sand miles out toward the Pacific coast or way down on the Gulf of _Mesice s _the_matter assumes. ferent hue. For these fellows, mile- age at twenty cents per is something substantial running as high as twelve hundred dollars each for the mem- bers from California, Oregon 'and Washington. Of course, for the boys who live almost within sight of the big dome, this mileage business offers a splen- did subject for hair tearing pleas for economy. They would just simply wade in and slash her right.down something like five cents a mile or, better still, make the -statesmen pay their traveling expenses out of their own pockets. This, to be sure, \lis- tens well\ to the folks back home and when all is said and done, that is ahout,the only reason that the_regu.t_ lar mileage scrap is staged -in the house, to impress certain and sundry constituents. • However, it does make. things a trifle embarrassing fJr a lot of other fellows who would much prefer that the old rate be maintain- ed and nothing said on the subject. It needlessly calls attention to the fact that the country pays top prices ref - catting tongressmen -- to - the capitol and back home again. • note that - any of the republican con- gressmen have attributed the decreas- ed whiskey drinking or the increased beer: drinking to, Woodrow Wilson or W. J. Bryan, but it would not sur- prise us if they did any, time.

He laughs best who laughs last, and the last laugh is surely coming to Oscar Un- derwood as a guesser on a tariff for revenue. He hit the situation very accurately, and his prediction that he had underestimated rather than Over estimated the power as a revenue pro- ducer, of the reduced tariff is borne out by the facts. The income tax falls a little below the estimates, though the last day of _the - year _add- ed nearly $30,000,000 to the collec- tions from this source. Probably con- siderably more will come in in the next few days. and there will be some delimpent collections with penalties. The government paid out --- about - thirty-five millions during the ypar for the construction of the Panama canal. a bond issue authori- sed to cover this if it is needed, but as the surplus is thirty millions the government will not issue any bonds but pay the thirty-five millions out of the ordinary revenues. Settling is-aceennt-InAhat way -it -will leave a deficit of five millions to be taken Out of the cash balance in the trea- sury. This is a very handsome show- ing, and leaves the government fin- ances in good shape, and no increase' in the public debt, notwithstanding the heavy payments on account of canal construction. Moreover, The promise is bright that next year's revenues will be even greater than they were in the past year, while the canal expenses will be very small or altogether covered by the tolls collec- . -ted.

Jim Mann, the republican leader, says that it isn't too much and explains by say- ing that a- Member should be allowed sufficient mileage to enable him to bripg his family to Washington with him. He contends, that every man who has a family ought to have said family right here with him and ,that the government is the winner if it provides 'sufficient money for the 1310Mheri(aQ VC his wife and children right along with him when he comes le 'engage in 'the nation's business. Most:'of the old timers agree with Mann. They have become accustom- ed to the little extra stipend. It is generally the 'new member who comes down with his head filled with ideas of reform and economy who reifies most of the rumpus about mileage, these and the fellows who live in Vir- ginia and New Jersey and Pennsyl- vania and whose mileage doesn't 'amount to anything anyway. While 1 - NNW for a moment quelitioft-thelt sincerity of purpose, I Sometimes wonder if these nearby fellows _Wouldn't_ undergo some sudden and violent change of heart if they were conpelled to change places wit Kettner of San Diego, California, Nick Sinnett of Oregon or Jack Gar- ner who hails from way down on the Rio Grande. . The sub committee in charge of the 'mileage appropriation this year - subs. 'minted a plan whereby each member should be paid the actual traveling expenses of himself and family to and from Washington. This made an instantaneous hit with some of the members who have six or 'seven chil- dren for whom they have to pay full fare.- Bat - the bachelors, of -whom there are several in the house, and the fellows who have only one wife each and no children were not partic- ularly taken with the proposition.

Over there they didn't waste much time Qn the subject, but promptly placed the rate back at the old figures and sent the bill across as -to -wrestle with days longer. One of these days, the house will get right down to brass tacks and make a serioes attempt to adjust this mileage question in a %sen- sible manner'. Twenty cents per mile might be stretching the limit a trifle and five cents per mile is certainly not enough if the object is really to - expenses of the hers and their families. About ten cents per mile would appear to be a reasonable compromise and by fixing it at that sum, congress might be able to avoid the controversy which rages about the subject every time it is brought up: . It is altogether poleible that the reclamation extension bill will get be- fore the house this week and, if it does, it is reasonably certain to pass. The members from the reclamation statea of the west have been doing some mighty effective teamwork on this bill and expect to be able to bowl over any opposition which may be de- pedalthough_it_lanot the easiest job in the world. It must be remembered that the public land states in which these projects are located have only twenty or thirty members in the house and they com- prise an insignificant minority in. the house. The fact that the administra- tion is behind the bill will help, ma- terially. It is the one big piece of legislation for which_ the western members have been fighting and they will be a jubilant bunch if they can put it over. Champ - Clark says that we will -be here until October first, and perhaps later. The senate committees having In charge -the ani-trust measures sent over to them by the house are ex- - perienting:-stlet- - rd-diffieuity_ lu- ting together, which means that they will consume a lot of time before ar- riving at any sort of compromise. The trade commission bill has been re- ported out of the senate committee and is now being \talked out\ on the floor. It is my guess that if we should happen to remain in session until the autumn, Bob Gordon, a sergeant at arms of the house, - will be the busiest man in Washington trying to keep a quorum here after the middle of Sep- tember for those will be interesting times back home for most of the fel- lows. Upon reflection, it occurs to me that Montana is a beautiful place during the sunny days of autumn. There is a tang in the atmosphere most invigorating to ona.worn down by the heat of the summer months. The trees on the mountain sides stand forth garbed in autumnal glory, their leaves stirred to rythmic movements by the freshening forerunners of the winterish winds. The birds in plaint- ive note sing sweetest in farewell ere they form for flight toward the southern pines. The sky is bluest then, the moon the biggest and the russet earth allures the wayfarer to. eatire-Also,• per- fectly good campaign speeches, rec- ently refurnished and newly uphol- stered for the occasion, are going to waste if Champ Clark's doleitil pre - 'diction comes true, which I think it TOM STOUT.
