I With whose money are these "pledges" satisfied.
It is astounding that the Governor can sit by and swallow
so much of this guff when he knows that of all things this
City needs, it is sewers, and of. all men who1 should give the
directions where the construction of sewers shall begin the
asanitation experts should have free and unquestioned sway.
I Mr. Governor, the people of. this town are beginning to
awake up to the sanitation necessities, they are getting out
and seeing the things they have heard about so long. They
jare preparing to back the sanitation campaign - aU a time
svvhen money talks and big projects are on hand. But take it

He follows up this concrete example
with a general request that every em

Windy City women are to teach tho

Alan's Ignorance In the matter of carv

n menace to society. An average man
doesn't know any more about the lo
cation of a turkey's wishbone than a
Ilostoncse knows about Honolulu. The
late Clyde Fitch lilt the nail squarely
on tho head at a banquet In New

BURNING THE HAMMER.
When Seattle burned tho Knocker's
hammer, newspapers In nearly overy
city of tho country commented on the
event in a tone that suggested they
would llko to have a hammer-burning
nearer home. One editorial that has
been very widely copied nnd mav be
accepted as having struck a proper
chord among the live wires, was pub
lished by the Nashville Tennesseean.1
It makes good reading in Honofufu.
Seattle has burned the hum
mer, and the knocker who raises

The ceremony 'attending the
plfclrig of the great Seattle ham
ner oiMTsrdheral pyre' was at
tended by 30,000 shouting men and
women. It was a farewell to the
soreheaded and the disgruntled, a
tip to the bilious that silence
should bo their role In tho future.
Nothing handicaps a city as
badly as a lot of croakers, and
Seattle did well to symbolize the
end of pessimism. The man who
hasn't a good word to say for his
own city ought to bo gagged and
tied whero he cannot get Into
The fault is Invariably with the
sorehead and not Willi the city.
Complaint Is generally based on
personal failure. Nobody likes to
bear a kicker. He doesn't even
enjoy hearing himself and the cor
ners of his mouth might turn up
and the smile might return to his
face If he would only stop grumb
ling for a while.
Any man who doesn't feel that
ho can say a good word for his
home city should at least spare
the feelings of his friends and as
sociates by holding his tongue.
Kvery city lias Its crop of ne'er-do-wells.
Some cities are worse
cursed than others with these
weeds. Uusy, Industrious, thrifty
men and women are too busy
making a career for themselves
and helping their fcllowmen to
stand Idly -by and carp at their
neighbors and their city.

strcots have been provided with a
model lighting system, since the
movement successfully launched
for modern puvlng In tho heart of
the city, and since the thriving
new Commercial club has been
organized, these croakers have
been silenced by tho shouts and

Colonel Itoonevelt lias done a good

On the whole, hu has been oftener

In what the whole world Is rejoicing
over: he says It won't vo), and that
if It does It will be to the detriment
of .the country at large.
He Bays is so many words that Pres-
Ident'Taft's proposal Is superfluous, or
Ihut It, Is, or ought to be. Insincere.
He quibbles. He couples with "hon
or" Integrity; why or how nobody
versed In International law can tell.
Even Mr. Itoosevelt doesn't tell.
Nobody expects to arbitrate national
existence or Integrity, and the treaty
presupposes tho Integrity of tho arbi
trating nuthorlty. Dr. Jones Justly
'IJut accuracy Is not Mr. Roosevelt's
forte. By way of fostering strictures
upon Mexico nnd assuming a kind of
magnanimity on our part for not In
tervening there, he tnlks of the ,'re
pealed military Invasion of our ter
ritory' by the, Mexican troops. ,
Of course, nothing whatever has hap
pened that can truthfully be so de
scribed. Of tho culpable and unhappy
things which actually have happened,
Mr. Itoosevelt says that It would bo
'absolutely Intolerable for us to bind
ourselves to arbitrate the questions
raised by them which foolish obser
vation simply makes us thankful that
not he but Mr. Tuft Is In the Whlto
HousiModay, and that not he but Gen
eral Clriint was there during the more
serious Issue over the Alabama case.
Mr, Itoosevelt suys that If English or
other forces had done to lis anything
akin to what tho Mexicans had done.
'we unuld Immrdldtrly demand ntone-
fneht or war."
"As n matter of fact. If civil war

contingency would still retain ihelr

plain people of America nnd of Eng
land take no stock In Mr. Itoosevelt's,
esoteric' or cxolerla doctrines. They
sincerely trust that none of tho gravo
