percnanco may poo up some mgoiea
critic of the press as to Its prorlnco'
as a newspaper. Some people would
have nothing of a sensational nature
(which is simply news out of the or
dinary) printed, while others are al
ways glad to read anything a news
paper may print until they or their
relatives become concernod In some
unso.emly incident and then they
want it suppressed. In tno mean
time tho successful newspaper pur
sues the even tenor of Us way, sure
of its mission and what 1b expected
of it, and regardless of any carping
critic. It seldom seems to strike
some peoplo that perhaps the editor
knows his business.
It is said that letter writing Is be
coming a lost art, except the speci
mens produced in divorce courts.
It is yet a question as to whether
a New Year's Resolution has much
to do with the world growing better.

Mr. Harry. Lehr, tho welt known
and wealthy society man of Nowport,

A, circular letter lias besn ad
dressed to the authorities at Wash
ington by those having in charge tho
digging of the Panama Canal in
which they complain bitterly of the
poetic effusions of Maurice H.
Thatcher, Governor of the Canal
Zone. They say ho writes poetry
without any provocation nnd most of
it is of the very worst sort. The
Government ought to uso Its best ef
forts to stop this terrible outrago
upon helpless employes.
Mr. Graham Vrealand has retired
as managing editor of tho Louisville
Courier-Journal, to be succeeded by
Mr. Harrison Robertson as general
editorial manager. Mr. Vreeland
goes Into moro lucrative employ
ment. Mr. Robertson has been with
tho Courler-Journnl for many years,
filling tho posts of managing editor
and editorial writer, haying In spec
ial care the editorial page. The
chango will in no wise affect the
splendid efficiency of the Courier
Journal as a great newspaper.
It wob caused to be reported over
tho Stato, before the meeting of the
Democratic State Executive Commit
tee, that tho meeting would bo only
for a friendly interchange of ideas
and that nothing would ho done at
thaf. timo only talk over party mat
ters. That tho Committee should
meet and at once Issue tho edict of
a primary election as tho mode of
selecting candidates for State offi
ces, and this over the protest of a
majority of the candidates them
selves, certainly looks a little queer,
to say the least. Was tho affair all
cut, and 'dried from the beginning?
In behalf of the smafl towns and
the merchants doing business there
in, a combined effort Is being mado
by almost all the newspapers
throughout the country against the
proposed establishment of local ru
ral parcels-post service. That this
scrvlcq would seriously cripple If not
annihilate tho small retailer of mer
chandise, sccmB plain. That It
would at the same time enrich tho
retail mall-ordor houses of distant
cities to the dlscomflturo of tho
home merchant, Is equally ovldont.
It would also heavily increase the
present postal deficit. Parcels-post
service would thwart tho prosperity
of country towns and merchant3.
Prominent matrons of Trenton, N.
J., havo handed together for the pur
pose of preserving tho integrity of
tho household, as they allege, and
havo Issued an edict that all married
men, must wear rings on their
thumbs as an indication or warning
of their wedded state. Such curtail
ment of man's inherent rights is a
terrible outrage. Hereafter every
brave .married man of Trenton, when
he jcoets a pretty woman, mutt either-
4erp ills bands in his pockets or
bpgta,erles of wig-wag signs wjth
Us hands to warn off the fair one's

whose names are being mentioned
in connection with tho Demooratlc

ablo to answer all questions but It
will bo pleased to answer where it
can and to mako inquiry where it Is
uncertain. Four persons are being
mentioned with frequency Folk,
Gaynor, Harmon and Wilson, and
their records are being examined.
Folk was an active supporter of
Bryan and Sewell in 1896 and has

ticket In all tho Presidential cam
Mayor Gaynor has supported tho
national ticket In all campaigns. In
1896 he was conspicuous as a sup
porter of tho Chicago platform ho
was one of the few prominent Demo
crats in the East who stood up for
the party creed and ticket and ho
has been faithful ever since.
Governor Harmon, the.i p. mem
ber of Mr. Cleveland's cabinet, did
not vote in 1896, but In 1900 pre
sided at Mr. Bryan's meeting In Cln
clnnatl. Gov. Wilson supported Palmer
and Buckner in 1896, but is suppos
ed to have supported the Democratic
national ticket In subsequent cam
paigns. The Commoner has no pos
itive information as to the cam
paigns since 1896, but will be pleas

In all the checkered -.history of

Thursday. . n ' I
At one moment It voted 'for apri

ticket, on the ground that 'this Was
the best and fairest means of getting

Tho very next moment It voted
down a proposal to secure the choice
of tho people for United States Sena

By voting down tho latter propo
sition, the Democratic party of Ken
