All tlic world is applauding Japan
in her generosity. Tho Japs were
tunart enough to know that thc good

It is openly charged that there is
graft in thc Government Printing

The Cotton Growers' Association
has decided upon ll cents as a reason
able minimum price for cotton. Now,
the colton farmer can bc master of thc

The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania
hts held, unanimously, that it is tho
privilege of tho wife to rule in mat
ters domestic, tho duty of tho hus
band being limited to providing. The
singular part of it is that tho learned
court limited the jurisdiction of tho
wife to matters domestic. In other
States her jurisdiction is unlimited.
The information comes from Wash

ternal revenue has rendered a d?cis
ion that will seriously effect a cum

largely of distilled liquors. Ho has
reversed thc ruling of his depart

decides that manufacturers of these
medicines must take out lioenses as
rectifiers and liquor dealers and that
druggists and others handling them
will have to pay the usua* retail liquor
When it comes to sensational state
ments in psychology and sooiobgy,
commend us to Chicago, where they
seem to discover more things whioh
are not so than any other center of
the globe. One of ?ts learned edu
cators has just announced that man is
a back number, that women are in
creasing in numbers and potentiality
beyond men and that the males will
soon be driven baok to the farms for a
chance to get a living. He makes the
categorical statement that more girl
babies than boys' are born and that
women have, aooording to returns in
the last two census years, leaped from
a trifle less tr?an four millions of wage-,
earners to more than five millions.
Well, what of it?

ward was asked tonight what he had
to say about Senator Tillman's speech
nt Marion. Although on bis way to
Virginia for his family, he did not like
to leave the State without responding
to the request for his views. He re
plied that he had read the report of
the meeting and added: "I have noth
ing to say in reference to hie remarks
concerning me, except I will do my
duty as I see it."
Continuing, the Governor said: "The
legislature appointed a committee to
investigate the affairs of the dispen
sary and this committee bas been
probing for facts, though the work is?
as yet, "unfinished. It is not my pur
pose to be so unfair as to remove the
men elected to these positions in the
dispensary by the legislature; when
such action on my part would be based
on 'rumors as to their official miscon
duct and dishonesty. But I do not
hesitate to say. as I have said already,
that it proof is produced, which will
justify me under the law in taking
action, 1 will act, and act promptly.
