124 THE A. M. E. REVIEW.
members have done in their way to make the Republican
party the tremendous agency for good in the life of the Na-
tion, which it has been and which it is today. In line with
our thought, Former Congressman Ralph W. Cole of Ohio,
speaking at Trenton, N. J., Sept. 10, said:
"A party was recently organized for social justice and
social equality, and yet that party made one rule for the Ne-
gro, south of the Mason and Dixon line and the reverse of
that rule for the Negro north of the Mason and Dixon line.
That is a peculiar sample of social justice. Republicanism is
the same all over the country. It applies to every condition
and every class of people."
Yes, the Republican party "is the same all over the coun-
try." President Taft is the head of the party. All in all, he is
one of the best equipped and sanest and safest of the ten Re-
publicans who have occupied the White House from Lincoln
to Taft. His heart has beat true to the National impulse
toward higher and better conditions for all of the people at
home and abroad, and he should be elected to succeed himself.
