It Is an nstonlshlng method, and It evidences a desperation on the part of the Taft managers which rould hardly be balleved If tbe evidence vara not so clear. This new method has to do with the nnt'onal Irrlntlon policy rno of the greatest achievements of Theodore Roosevelt's administration was the adoption of this national Irrigation rollcy and the creation of 'he reclamation service for tho establishment of IrrlrMlon works In the dry-len- d statc3 of the west, and the opening up of the hnd' hus reclaimed tn farn sett'emont. Tho work bas been enormously successful. Thousands rt substantial farmers have found homes upon land made astonishingly fertile by Irrigation, which beforo tho adoption of this policy lay Idle nnd uncrc-ductlv- e. Millions of acres of sagebrush have been made productive cf enormous crops. Tho work has been of Incalculable value to the nation as a whole. Now, for purely political reasons and In the effort to fo're the selection of delegates to tho Republican national convention who will vote for tho renomlnatlon of Mr. Taft, this great Irrigation work ho rocelv-e- d a tremendous check.

That the overwhelming rout of the Taft forces in Pennsylvania will have an effect in every part of tho country was cleatjyj demonstrated by the attitude of the Taft men in Kentucky. Despite the overthrow in Illinois the Taft men here had confidently predicted victory in Pennsylvania, basing their confidence on the fighting power of the reg ular Republican machine. The result has left them in a half- dazad state, which, with the majority, includes an admission that "Taft cannot be elected." Evening Post.

Two years ago Congress provided a special emergency fund of twenty-fiv- e million dollars (K&.OOft. 000) la order that certain of these projects which had been started might be. hurried through to completion. Of this fund one. million five hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) was allotted to tho Grand Vallev project, but still the word was not given to commence work under this allotment and nothing Is done.
