Sprlngflcld. I1L, July 4. Governor Tates
has addressed a. letter to Samuel Baxter.
Sheriff of Saline County, excoriating that
official for his alleged laxity of oQkUaT duty
in permitting reported outrages upon the
negro residents of his terrltury. Tho Gov
ernor's letter Is based upon the Information
conveyed to him In the recent report of As
sistant Adjutant General Evrert, who was
sent to Eldorado and to Saline County to
Investigate the situation there.
The Governor's communication to Sheriff
Baxter Is. in part, as follows!

In twenty minutes a white city of shining
new canvas tents had arisen on a hillside
which overlooks the broad Mississippi. It
is a slto well shaded by protecting grme
spring wator is at hand, and the officers
believe that a week's encampment Is In
prospect which will bo satisfactory from
a military standpoint and yet offer the
greatest possible enjoyment.
Twenty minutes was the time required for
driving the tent pegs and pitching tents
certainly not up to the Ihree-mlnute reg
ular army record mark. But this Is lho
first "campaign" for many of the St. Louis
Whatever their various accomplishments
and their capacity at other things, this is
their first experience at driving tent pegs
and adjusting guy ropea
j.r.e pegs proved not easy to drive. Toting
i-xui3. "off"' for a vacation, made
vigorous swipes" at the peg with the blunt
end of an ax missed every time. Then
he tried the flat side of the ax. nnd split
the peg. A few more pegs and a few more
tries, and he conquered. tboJKh often axes
were discarded and makeshifts substituted,
such as tent poles, clubs or ball bats.
Probably veterans would have driven the
pegs better, but they would not have worked
as hard, for the young St. Louis mUltary
men seemed poMesswd with a demomac en
ergy, asd plugged away for three solid
hours in a tlazljg hot sun until ever detail
of the camp was made ship shape.
Hon- the Camp Was, Laid Ont.
Then because of th rielnv nf th mtn
I chests and the commissary stores, a, meal
was out of the question until S p. m. At
this time, however, a "mess" was served,
which Included frefh beef, potatoes, corn,
tomatoes, bread and coffee, and which fully
satisfied tho hungtr of thu 50 dectdedly
hungry men who sat down to it.
By evening the camp spirit entirely pre
vailed. Beutrita paced the outskirts of the
camp, and every point within It had been
christened. An avenue between tents was
named E street, another P, another A. ac
cording to the various company letters.
Then there was the open "parade ground"
and the otacsrs" tents, dubbed "headquar
ters." The BtroUer who entered camp territory.
wnemer ne was uniformed or not, was sa
luted with a "Who goes there?" in ap
proved regulation style, and such a stroller
was required to give a satisfactory and
plausible account of himself. Thon. again,
such of the men as had "been to the
war." who had served in Cuba or the Phll-
lpplnes.manased to gather In a group round

relate their harrowing experiences. They
were the men of the nour.
On tho first night out there was some
confusion In getting directions straight
and set era! troopsrs had difficulty In reach
ing S street or U, or whichever "boule
vard" was his. But such minor troubles
did not mar tho occasion, and such troopers
generally found their way "home."
The regiment left St. Louis at 10 a. m.
on the city of Providence. It marched
from the Armory, Colonel A. C. Sinclair.

other staff officers and band leading. Tho
boat was crowded on the trip down with
Fourth of July excursionists and friends
of the militiamen. Montesano was
reached at U:U. Mounted offloers at tte
head, the march was made to the camp
ground, 150 yards from the landing.

Concentration of Corporate "Wealth.
"Especially great, especially difficult, are
the problems caused by the growth and
concentration of great Individual, and.
above nil. great corporate fortunes. It li
immensely for the Interests of the country
that there should be such individual and
corporate wealth as long as It Is used
right, and when not used right then It be
comes a serlou-) menace and danger. (Ap
jjlause.) The Instruments and methods
with whlf'h we are to meet thee new prob
lems must In many cases themselves be
new. but the purpose lying behind the use
of these methods of those Instruments
must. If we aro to succeed. tx now, as In
the past, simply In accord with the im
mutable laws of order, of Justice and of
"We may need, nnd. In my belief, win
need, new legislation conceived in no radi
cal or revolutionary spirit, but In a spirit
of common sense, common honesty and a
resolute desire to face fact as they are.
(Applause.) We will need. then, new legis
lation, but. while laws are Important. It
is- Infinitely more important that they
should be administered In accordance with
the principles that have marked honest
administration from the beginning of re
cordad history. (Applause.)
"What Is Mennt by Jnatlre.
"In the last analysis the mon Important
department of civilized government is the
Department of Justice. Think what It
means. The Department of Justice. Jus-
i tlce that means that each man. rich or
I poor, strong or weak, shall have his rights
J nnd shall not be allowed to do wrong to
a I hu fellows. (Applause.) Ami on. here, or
this city, have a right to fel proud of
your representative In the Cabinet, the
man under whom we can guarantee that
the Department of Justice will be such In
fact as well as In name. (Loud and con
tinued applause and cheers. Cries of
"When It comes to practice, the ounce
of performance outweighs the ton of prom
Lie. (Applause.) And under Mr. Knox
there has been very much more than an
ounce of performance. (Applause).
"Oh. m fellow-countrymen, as we face
these infinitely difficult problems let us
eer keep In mind that though we need
the hltrhest Qualities1 of the Intellect In
order to work out practical schemes for
their solution, yet we need a thousand
times more, what counts for many. many,
many times as much as intellect we need
character. (Cries of "That Is It." and ap
"Character, that compound of honesty
and courage and common sense, will avail
us more In the long run than any brilliancy
on the stump or any advising legislative
means and methods. The brilliancy Is
good. We need the Intellect; we need the
best Intellect we can get: we need the best
intelligence, but we need mcrr still-char-ecter.
We need common sense, common
honesty and resolute courage. (Applauie.)
"We need what Mr. Knox has shown
the character that wlU refuse to be hur
ried Into any unwise or precipitate move
ment by any clamor, whether historical or
demagegfe. and. on the other hand, the
character that will refuse to be frightened
out of the movement which he thinks it
right to undertake, by any pressure, sUU
less by any threat, express or Implied.
(Cries of "Hear," and "Hear." and ap
plause.) Solution Must Be Gradual.
"Gentlemen, we have got problems; we
can only solve them by degrees. We can
only solve them by doing well each particu
lar bit of work as it comes up for solution.
Much caD be done along the lines of u-pet-vislon
nnd regulation of the great n
duitrial combinations which have becomi
so markod a feature In our civilization, but
If we recklessly try without proper thought,
without proper caution, to do too much, we
shall do nothing, or else wo shall work a
ruin that will be felt most acutely among
thoe of our citizens who are most h-ilpless.
"It Is no easy task to deal with great .r.
dustrlal tendencies To deal with thru in a
spirit of presumptuous and rash folly, and
above all. to deal with them In a rplrit of
envv and hatred and malice, would be ta
Invite disaster, a disaster which would be
so widespread thit this country would rock
to It foundations. The Mississippi some
times causes immense damage by flood. If
you cannol dam It and stop the Hoods you
can regulate them nnd control them by
lfvees. You can regulate and control tho
current; you can eliminate Its destructive
features, but you can do it only by study
ing what a current is and what your own
powers are. (Applause.)
"It Is Just exactly to In dealing with the
great tendencies of our Industrial civiliza
tion. We cannot turn back the wheels of
progress If we could It would mean the
absolute destruction of Just such Industrial
countries as this. We will either do noth
ing or m will do damage If we strive ig
norantly to achieve the Impossible.
"But that fact docs not excuse u- for
failure to strive to. do what It po""itIe.
Srecta'l legislation Is nefded. ne of that
legislation must come through municipali
ties, some through State.-, some through
the national Government, but above anil
beyond all legislation we need honest and
fearless administration of the law an they
are on the statute books. (Applause.) Hon
est and fearless administration of those
laws In the Interest, neither cf the rich
man as such, nor of the poor man a su."b.
but In the Interest of exact and eaual Jus
tice to all alike, and such administration
you will surely have while Mr. Knox re
mains as Attorney General In the Cabinet
at Washington." (Applause.)

Mrs. Pinkham Freely Offers Her
" O, if my mother were only alive." -
How frequently youn-j mothers use this expression !
All through her life she has known a mother's watchful care.
She is now a mother ncrself and gains in strength but slowly.
She would give worlds to do everything for her babe, but cannot."'
That tiny babe has unfolded in the young mothers heart new
emotions: she has a Irving responsibility, and requires strength to
enable her to perform a loving duty. At such a time too much care
cannot be taken, and the greatest assistant that nature can have is
Xiydin. K. rinkliam's Vegetable Compound.
Tho birth of the first child is an especially trying experience and
nature needs all the help it can,get. A happy, healthy, young mother
is a delight to herself and all who know her, and 3Ir3. Pinkham's medi
cine will buiid her up as nothing else can.
3rrs. Pinkham especially requests young mothers and vrives
to write Iht if they necsl advice. She has been mother, helper,
and friend to thousands let her help you it will cost you.

Mrs. Pinkham and Mrs. George Traub, of Elizabeth, JX. J., which goes
to prove our claims.
"Dear Msu. rEfKnAM: I will take my husband's advice and -write to

Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. When I bad finished the first bottle,
that lump I wrote about grew smaller and has now gone entirely. I feel
that I do not need any doctor beside your medicine. Your Vegetable Com

received from it is wonderful. You and you alone will be my guide as long
