ALDERMAN MERRIAM. Alder
man Charles E. Merriam is probably
the most valuable man in the city
council to the people of Chicago. He
is one of the best posted men in the
country on municipal affairs. Al
though running on the Republican
ticket, he is not partisan in the pub
lic service, but puts the public good
above party consideration. Merriam
showed unusual political courage in
the last county campaign by sup
porting Maclay Hoyne for state's at
torney, on -the ground that Hoyne
was the best man for the place.
Merriam's good Judgment has been
vindicated since by Hoyne's splen

He is a real leader and is invariably well, look at Louie the Sixteenth.

toward all nations is what we want
ed. We still have peace, but the
bonds of good will have been broken.
It is unfortunate. It is not a matter
to glory over. You hear no hurrahs
anywhere in America. There Is no
enthusiasm over our prospects of
losing our position as a peaceful,
God-loving, humanity-serving nation
and taking place among the cut
throats who have turned the world
to slaughter, perpetrated nearly all
the horrors of barbarism in thename

NO GRANDEUR IN IT. One of
the semi-official organs of France
bursts into rhapsodies, thus:
"Circumstances give to Mr. Wil
son's act an incontestable grandeur."
It may look grand to the French,
but it strikes us as serious only, the
grandeur having fizzlea out of war,
or anything that looks likewar.
