- The trade commission hill' on which Congress
i spent so much time to please the President is a
.measure that promises to open a wide field for lit
igation. The proposed commission is to operate
witlV"respeet to all corporations engaged in inter
state commerce, in about the same manner that the
Interstate Commerce Commission is dealing with
railroads, and it will have the inquisitorial and
other powers of the existing bureau of corpora
tions. The vast field open to this political commis
sion will probably lead to its early downfall. There
' has been no demand on the part of the public for
such legislation. ,
"It can harly be questioned that President Vil-
son has made a serious mistake in selecting for the
Supreme Court bench a man of Mr. MeKcynolds'
mental qualities and training," says the New York
Tribune. "The Attorney General is essentially a
partisan and a pjissionate one. Not in one item,
but in many itenA, o has shown a spirit that ser
iously mars his finess for judicial office. The coun
try has been glad to have an aggressive Attorney
General, but evtfn in that quasi-judicial post Mr.
Mcltcynolds has) displayed a temper for wrangling
and a personal bitterness that have much hamper
ed his accomplishments."

From now on it may be expected that British
losses on the seas will exceed the German, for the
obvious reason" that British merchantmen continue
to ply the sens, while German ships stick to their
own or to neutral ports. The allied navies arc nom
inally in control of the seas; nevertheless there
are a numhjf of fast German cruisers at large, bus

The outlook at present is that the first turning
point of the war may he reached before winter
closes in, altho there is nothing to indicate that
airy of the belligerents would sue for pence, even
in case of the defeat of the hig armies now in ac
tion. All of the nations have resources in reserve,
and the struggle has taken on such a desperate
character that it is certain that no one battle, how
ever tremendous its size, will end the war. "Wash
DARK OUTLOOK FOR DEMOCRATS.
"The war in Europe does not alter the fact that
a very important Congressional and State election
is to be held in November," says the Boston Adver
tiser. "Political prophets have declared that the
international situation will stay the avalanche that
threatened to hury the Democrats. If this were
true it would be a grave indictment against a Re
publican form of government. Nothing could fur
nish more conclusive proof of the incompetence of
the Democracy than its lack of preparation for the
present crisis, and its frantic activity in doing the
wrong things after the war cloud broke. The
financial situation forced the Democrats to resort
to a Republican measure that they had condemned
in their platforms and pointed out in their cam
paign speeches ns a crime. Their tariff had al
ready crippled the sugar industry, before war be
gan to obscure our national issues. Their persist
ent opposition to every Republican attempt to en
courage our merchant marine is alone responsi
ble for our present isolation. The war docs not
render their anti-business legislation any more pal
atable than it was two months ago. In short, the
present situation has thrown the political and eco
nomic bankruptcy of the Democratic party into

OCTOBER, GOLDEN MONTH OF ALL
If over tho world Is enwrapped in
n linro that mellows with Its softness-
tho hnrsh edges of earthly existence1,
it Is in tho mouth whoso hnlcyons nover
fall. To talk of tho weather Is man's
primo nnd unfailing topic. To write
of it is to tnko chances with a jade
whose snillo turns to n frown without
a moment's warning, nut October may
bo trusted. Sho is no willful maid, bent
on tho mocking of tho spirit that she
lures. Hers Is tho comforting friend
ship of ono who knows ltfo through the
borrowed experiences of tho months
that went before. Of their promlso, sho
Is tho unfailing fulfillment. Her lnp in
vites, her arms nro a certain resting
Through tho richly blazoned leaves
of her woods tho warm rays of the
autumnal sun fall to the cool ground.
Thero is both n chill nnd an ardency
In the atmosphere. The patter of nuts
from tho oak groves cnll to razor-back
hogs. Tho rain of mast from tho beech
trees Is echoed by tho swish of tho
wings of ring-doves. Squirrels bark in
tho tall branches of the "shell bark"
hickories. Tho shrill notes of summer
Insects havo passed away. Tho raccoon.
Creeps warily to his breakfast of craw
fish in tho bed of the old creek, whose
waters run low, lapping the moss-grown
edge of tho big rock at tho "crossing",
where a few months before, you held
brnvely to tho arm of tho beloved girl.
and wished it Were the swelling of the
.Jordan instead of the rippling stream,
and that .the sun would stand still ns it
ild in tho valley of Ajalon, so precious
wore tho fleeting moments. Tho fox
crapes havo grown purple under the
amorous kisses of that samo sun which
is ripening tho vintago of tho plains
of Oampagne, and you think of the
reports brought back by Caleb and
.loshun from tho Land of)Promise, flow
iiiir with milk and honoy, where the
grapes of Eschol turned all the giants
of existence into mero grass-hoppers.
While the landscape swlnm in beauty,
overhead tho bluo skies of October rule,
filled with the tang of new wino and
the untamed spirit of Hun nnd Visigotl
sweeping down from tho North to over
come and occupy the enervated valleys
too long possessed by dreamy and deca
dent summer. Your own spirit answers.
Tho very buzzard that floats in tho
azure expanso becomes ennobled by his
environment. Haroun al Itaschid need
no longer fare forth in search of rare
experiences. Ho has but to stand still
in the Ohio hills and let the moviug-
nii-turo films of tho season brini' to
him thrice three screens of wonders that
the prototype of "Kaloloo, tho Indian
Maid" knew far better than the dark
eyed girl who draws her -thirty per for
posing beforo the clicking instrument
of modern devising.
Tho berries of the sumach aro red
der than tho blood In Aisno's trenches.
The pawpaw is as yellow as gooso fat
hencath its green rind, and the chest nue
mil persimmon uwnit the first frost of
adversity to prove tho sweetness ot
their usage. To have tasted October
to the full is to gather strength for an
other year, oven as fabled Anteus, the
enrthborn, had to touch tho All-Mother
from tiino to time, in order to live.
