Josiah Quincy of Massachusetts
Favors Currency Bill.
fBsitwss Country Will Give Full Rec
ognition to Its Many Good Fea
tures-Is Wise and Construc
Former Mayor Josiah Quincy of
.Boston, at one time Democratic na
tional committeeman of Massachu
setts, and one of the original Wilson
men of that state, in discussing the
.currency bill, said:
"I believe that the administration
?banking and currency measure has
ixnade a very favorable impression
upon the country. There is certainly
.very general commendation of the
courage which the president has
?shown ia launching the bill at the
.extra session, and tull recognition is
Sven the many good features which lt
"I have great confidence in the abil
ity of the Democratic party under its
.present leadership, both at the White
House and in congress, to achieve the
.passage of a measure which will be
on the whole satisfactory to the coun
try. We must relieve the American
people of the reproach of having the
?worst banking system of any civilized
nation in respect to provision for
meeting conditions of strained credit
"The bill is a great attempt at con
structive statesmanship, and I believe
that public sentiment will support the
(President in his insistence that it
should immediately follow the passage
cf the cariff jill, which ?B necessarily
disturbing to some Unes of Industry,
[however beneficial its general and fu
ture effects may be.
"Some features of the bill may meet
with objection in New England aa
elsewhere, but our bankers and finan
ciers are Independent men, and do
their own thinking. I do not believe
that when they fully understand the
bill they will follow the large banks
in the central reserve cities in the
opposition which some of the latter
seem to be disposed to make.
"With the passage of both a tariff
end a currency bill the administration
would have a notable record of
achie verne ur upon which to appeal to
Much Ado About Little.
After all the bother about the sun
dry civil appropriations bill, and th'
"rider" which was supposed to exempt
Sabor unions and farmers' organiza
tions from prosecution, President Wil
son points out that this prohibition
applies only to a single appropriation
Even so, the president says he does
not like the "rider." and the Journal
agrees with him. But ihat rider does
not change existing anti-trust legisla
tion and does not keep the depart
ment of justice from using other ap
?propriatlons in any way that seems
necessary. It merely states the senti
ments of congress in reference to this
particular sum of money.
President Wilson took a common
sense course in signing the bill, while
making public protest against the
"rider." The efforts of trust schemers
to stir up a quarrel between presi
dent and congress on an unimportant
matter have failed.-Chicago Journal.
"A true indictment of the [Under
wood] bill is that it aids foreign labor
ers by throwing open our markets, and
discriminates against laborers in
the United States."-Representative
Payne, author of the Payne tariff law.
And the Payne law, to what extent,
elded the foreign laborers in the mills
of Lawrence and Little Falls, of which
Mr. Payne and his party took such
good care In order to preserve the
"American standard of living?"
President's State Papers Mcdels.
No president since Lincojp has is
sued state papers to be compared in
force and eloquence with the few offi
cial utterances of Woodrow Wilson.
Yet no man ever sat in the White
House who gave less heed to sonorous
periods and carefully rounded phrases.
Tie does not emulate the polish of
Garfield, the smooth adroitness of Mc
Kinley, nor the pompostuous turbu
lence of Roosevelt.
Attorney-General's Good Record.
A public official's past good record.
If he has it, is of great use to him in
e time of possible suspicion. The fact
that Attorney-General McReynolds has
vbeen an able and fearless prosecutor
of special privilege assures him fair
consideration by the public in connec
tion with the San Francisco accusa
People Will Note a Change.
There is no instance of President
Wilson having given or withheld pa
tronage to influence votes. And he is
going to continue to be unlike any
president Washington has seen in the
last dozen years.
Ten Years of Foreign Trade.
The fiscal year Just closed sees our
?foreign trade for the first time above
$4,000,000,000. Our exports amounted
to $2,500,000,000, an increase of 72 per
cent, in ten years. Our imports were
$1,750,000,000, an increase of nearly 76
per cent. The total, 14.250,000,000, ls
en increase of 74 per cent. It would
not be surprising, now that we are
About to cease the policy of fighting
off commerce with the tariff club, to
see lt grow even more rapidly than
ia the past decade.
DISGRACE OF TETLOW
By CLARENCE HOLCOMB.
"This < roy party comes into the
bunch gn-.-3 country from Noo York,"
aaid the judge.
"Say, he's that green that when he
climbs down off the box of the stage
he looks up an' down the street afore
he gets off. 'Fraid he's goin' to step
In front of a trolley car.
"Sure he's green, but he's good
stuff. I'm runnin' a bunch of control
cattle on Stinkin' Water mountain
that summer, an' I gives him a job.
Shure it looks like makin' him a pres
ent of them wages, but he's such a
decent sort a chap I ain't got the
heart to turn him away. I hears about
him every monti' Tompson's report.
"1 thought when you sent him, out
here you must be losin' your mind,
but I guess you knew wot you was
doin'. He'B a fine chap, an* a hard1
"It ain't long after this till the first
snow falls on the mountain, an' the
cattle has to be got In on the home
"It's hard work this, fur strange
camps don't appeal to the cow-brute
none, BO after it's all over I gives the
boys a week in town. I hangs around
the boardin' hous'/ principle, an' Joe
keeps me company. The house was
run at that time by a little widow by
the name of Cummin's.
"It seems a fellow named Black
Jack Tetlow was playln' all suits both
ways from the middle tryin' to win
the widow, but she don't enthuse.
Final, when Joe arrives on the scene
she passes him up like he's a white
chip, which makes him imagine Joe's
alienatin' them affections.
"Harry, Jed an' Barney is all down
to the saloon, an' before we turns In.
Joe an' I lights our pipes an' strolls
down town. As we pass the saloon
the boys is in I takes it into my head
to drop in an' try to get them to come
to bed an' Joe follows.
"We ain't no more than entered,
when a slab-sided kid called Goggle
Eye George, sticks his foot between
Joe's legs an' trips him up. This Gog
gle Eye George's eyes stick out Uko a
shrimps, but when Joe gets up, he
shure puts one of them back normal.
Just one lick, an' Goggle Eye ain't
got no more fight In him than a sheep,
but he don't need to do his own fight
in', fur right hyer Black Jack takes
his hand an' plays It fur him.
"Gettin' up from the table, where
he's been dealln' stud poker he walks
up to Joe.
'"Wot do you mean?' he snarled,
'a hitting of my particular friend?'
"Joe didn't say anything, just stood
'"Well, HI make you talk!" shouts
Black Jack, haulin' off an' knockin'
Joe over a couple of chairB.
Joe picks himself up, brushes his
clothes, an' faces Black Jack.
"You're not goin' to shoot me?"
asks Black Jack, like he's alarmed.
" 'Yes,' says Joe, 'I think I shall.'
"'Now you're talkin' like a sport,
even if you ain't got the ear marks,'
spouts Black Jack.
"With this he motions the crowd to
get off the Arin' line, pulls his gun, an'
goes to the further end of the room.
"Joe, he pulls a bull-dog 32 he's
raked up somewheres, but keeps on
standin' in the center of the room.
" 'You picks the quarrel, and you
suggests the weapons. Now, I'm goin'
to name the distance,' says Joe.
"'Wot's the matter with this?' asks
" 'Nothin',' says Joe, 'only the school
I attends when I'm a kid teaches matf
ners instead of sharp-shootin', which
same system seemB to have been re
versed where you're brought up. Now
if you will be so kind,' says Joe,
bowin' low, 'you will step this way.'
"'Wot (Jo you mean?' stammers
." 'I mean,' says Joe, cool as a mint
jullp, 'that this affair 1B goin' to be
breast to breast.'
" 'For a moment Black JacL looks at
him lu surprise, then s wallows several
times an' hangs his head.
"If he don't except he knows it's his
finish in the cow country, an' likewise
lt's the same if he does, fur even a
tenderfoot like Joe can't miss at thaC
range. Black Jack is a bad man, with
more than one notch In his gun, but he
don't dare run his brand on the little
slick-ear that's standin' there In the
middle of the room, even if his horns
ain't out of the velvet He looks
around at the crowd, then seeln' it
ain't no use he shoves his gun in his
pocket, an' goes over an' gets his hat
As he does this, Tompson gives a hiss,
an' though you can see it hurts he
"Black Jack Tetlow is a gambler,"
says 'he judge, as we arose and"
pushed our chairs against the wall,
"but he lets a tenderfoot make him
lay doivn a cinch."
