STAND BY THE PRESIDENT.
In tho courso of nn ablo nrtlclo In

Dixon C. Williams, tho well known
Chicago manufacturer and Demo

chairman contlnuo his indecent in

of our citlzons nro with him; but, in
tho meantime tho authorities in tho
president's own oMclal, political or
ganization should wnko up, fight all
tho hardor for tho common good and
forget, It you please, that Republicans
havo been sometimes seemingly pre

Democrats who would havo sorved

president and his policies has boen

Tho world is "still on flro," tho
conflagration may any moment reach

JAMES R. RIGGS
The new nsslstnnt secretary of ag
riculture, James R. RlggM, Is n farmer
not merely by way of Interest In the
subject, but by life-long, practical ap
plication. Farming has been his pri
mary occupation all his life. Moro
than thnt, ho Is n farmer by heredity.
His grandfather, Hcruklnli Rlggs, was
born on it farm In Loudon counly, Vir
ginia, In 1701. When ho was twenty
two years old be moved to Sullivan
county, Indiana, and engaged In farm
ing and llvo stock growing. Thcro
Commodore Terry Rlggs, father of tho
assistant secretary, was born and
thcro he spent his llfo as n fnrmer and
stock grower. All of Iih sons and alt
of his sons' sons hae been farmers.
James R. Rlggs was born at Shcl
burn, Intl., February 17, 1805. For two
yenrs after graduation from tho Sulli
vaw county high school, In 1882, ho
was deputy county treasurer nnd
bookkeeper for n hardware and lumber
Arm. In 1883, when he was twenty yenrs old, ho began his career us a farmer.
Ho made Ids first purchase of Innd In 1888. From thnt tlmo until tho present

HENDERSON, BRITISH LABOR LEADER
Tho result of tho by-election ot
Whines, Lancaster, In which Arthur
Henderson, the labor leader, was
elected to tho houso of commons, Is
considered a hevero blow to tho coali
tion government. Henderson said his
victory was "nn emphatic condemna
tion of tho coalition government's
policy and of tho cynical political com
promise upon which tho government
rests." Henderson's recent expres
sions of his views lncludo these:
"Tho presviit world unrest menus
thnt tho old order of things Is in Its
death throes, that n now society is
about to como to Its birth nnd that age
long Injustices and Inequalities that
burdened tho llveS of tho common peo
plo nro to bo swept away. Cluss rulo
in politics Is doomed, but It Is still
doubtful whether tho Ideal of truo po
litical liberty will bo realized In this
or other countries without a violent
convulsion of socloty. Tho main prob
lem now Is to restore popular conlldenco In representative Institutions and to
guide tho movement ot tho musses along tho path of constitutional changes,
nnd to enable democracy to become master In Its own houso without violence"
ZITA SAYS AUSTRIA WAS "HELL"
It Is not to) 1 what reply Charles and tho dignitaries mudo to this emphatic
declaration. Doubtless sho stated Uj exact fact concerning her life In the

Gov. Henry J. Allen of Kansas
says of the movement to estnlillsh n
nntlotml budget system: "Tlio wnr
emphasized strongly tlio Inadequacies
of our legislative mnchlnury In prob
lems of national llnunce. No prlvnto
business concern would dare to rush
blindly Into things as docs congress.
This Is becnuso congress Incks n sound
system of providing public money for
the operation of the ten major execu
tive departments. Tho work of theso
agencies fun be established only
through the adoption of a new method
of budgetary procedure."
Governor Allen Is ono of 22 gov
ernors who are reported by the na
tional budget committee to favor the
substitution of tho budget system for
tho present system of departmental es
timates. The governors mndo many
remedial suggestions, Including the fol
lowing: A BORN FARMER
Secretary Joscphus Daniels of tho
navy is n capable spotlight artist, and
ho was conspicuously In tho public cyo
during hlu recent visit to tho Pacific
coust In connection with tho arrival of
tho licet. They do say that the
ofllclul motion pictures of tho secre

Such delicacies us pig, roasted
wholo In tho ground, with tho nld of
hot rocks ; pol from tho mealy root ot
the tnro plant; seaweed and raw fish;

coconut milk; beef and taro tops

many other viands dear to tho palate
of tho nntlvo Hawaiian, wero served

his honor. Tho guests wero compelled
to cat with their Augers. Napkins

Secretary Daniels did not hesitate.

And this was tho end of tho houso of

tho former Austrian regimo aro con

former Emperor Charles attempt an
active part In Austrlnn affairs.
At ono of tho recent conferences
tho former Empress Zlta was present.
Sho was Princess Kltn of Bourbon and
Purmn. Sho hns spent tho greatest
part of her life In tho convent In which
sho was educated, Sho Is said to know
very llttlo nbout tho great world. Still
sho apparently has learned something.
After tho last conference had
lasted 'for three hours sho said:
"I hnvo had enough talking, gen
