Bryan on the Presidency.
William T. Brvan has written an
article entitled "My Conception of
the Presidency," for Collier's Week
ly. Mr. Bryan says ;
The President's power for good
or for harm is over estimated. Our
Government is a government o f
checks and balances ; power is dis
tributed among different departments
and each official works in co-operation
with the others. In the making
of laws, for instance, the President
joins with the Senate and Houst ; he
may recommend but he is powerless
to legislate, except as a majority of
the Senate and House are also inde
pendent of each other, each having
a veto over the other ; and the Presi
dent has a veto over both ; except
that the Senate and House can, by a
two-thirds vote, override the Presi
dent's veto. The influence of the
President is therefore limited. He
shares responsibility with a large
number of the peoples' representa
"Even in the enforcement of law
he is hedged about by restrictions
He acts through an Attorney Gener
al (whose appointment is approved
by the Senate ) and offenders against
the law must be prosecuted in the
courts so that here again the respon
sibility is divided.
'In the making of important ap
pointments, too, he must consult the
Senate and is of necessity compelled
to exercise care and discretion. The
most important requisite in a Presi
dent as in other officials is that his
sympathy shall be with the whole
people rather than with any fraction
of the populatipn. He is constant
ly called upon to act the capacity
of a Judge decided between the
importunities of those who seek fav
ors and the rights and interests of
the public. Unless his sympathies
are right the few are sure to have
an advantage over the many, for the
masses have no one to present their
claims. They act only at elections
and must trust their representatives
to protect them from all their foes.

Correspondents will please sign
their real names to communications in
addition to the name or initial! they
desire to be printed. Sometimes a
very innocent looking item will turn
cut to be a practical joke at some
body's expense. The editor has
been victimized several times in this
way and will hereafter refuse to
print any sort of communication un
less the name of the writer is made
known. Merely a set of initials is
signed, and we are not good enough
at guessing to learn whose name
they stand for.

When times are dull, when it
rains and pours and everybody gets
blue, did you ever stop to think
what the editor has to contend with?
Nobody comes in to renew their
subscriptions, the merchants order
out their advertisements and cut
down expenses in every conceivable
way. They lay off their clerks,
put off getting printing done, etc.,

From present indications the
school tax per capita for next year
will be increased five cents over the
highest amount ever fixed heretofore.
The per capita last year was $3.40,
and every effort will be made to
have this increased next year to
$3.45. The preliminary estimates
gathered by the Superintendent of
Public Instruction show that there
will be about 750,000 school children
in the state next year, as compared
with 734,000 last year.

Speaking of Napoleon, Robt. In
gersol once said : A little while ago
I stood by the grave of the great
Napoleon a magnificent lomb of
gilt and gold. I saw him take an
empire by the force of his genius. I
saw him upon the frightful field of
Waterloo, when chance and fate
combined to wreck the fortunes of
the former king, and I saw him at
St. Helena with his hands crossed
behind him gazing out at the sad and
solemn sea. I thought of the or
phans and widows he had made, of
the tears that had been shed for his
glory, and the only woman who had
ever loved him pushed from his heart
by the cruel hand of ambition, and
I said I would rather have been a
French peasant and worn wooden
shoes, I would rather have been
that poor peasant with my loving
wife by my side, knitting as th'e day
died out in the skies, with my chil
dren upon my knees and their arms
about me. I would rather have been
that man and gone down to the
tongueless silence of the dreamless
dust than to have been that impartial
impersonation of force and murder
known as Napoleon the Great.

Gasoline at the Courier Office.
After consulting my friends and
carefully looking over the field I
have decided to make the race for
circut court clerk. I am competent
and every way qualified to fill this
office. I have a thorough knowledge
of clerical work including the keep
ing of books.
As to my record, character and
competency I refer you to any man
in the city of Fulton.
I served my country faithfully as
a soldier in the Spanish-American
war and from injuries sustained
while a soldier I have been made a
cripple for life. I am not appealing
to the sympathy of the voters but
assure them that if elected I shall
be more than able to take care of
the office. The present incumbent
John Wesley Morris has held the
the office for two terms twelve
years and is now seeking it again.
I have no unkind feeling for Mr.
Morris but he has become ' well fix
ed" from the various fees that
have been paid into this office dur
ing his long years of service. He is
a strong, active, shifty man and able
to engage in various enterprises. It
is Democratic to give every worthy
man a chance, therefore I seek your
votes and assistance. I believe I am
going to be elected and if I am suc
cessful I pledge myself to carry out
the instructions of the court cheer
fully and without complaint. It
shall be my pleasure to treat all my
constituents with uniform courtesy
regardless of the section in which
they reside. I am allied with no
faction and point to my record as a
Democrat with pride. Vote for me
and I will appreciate it and not for
get it the day after I am elected.
Owing to my physical infirmities I
fear that I will not be able to see all
the voters but expect to keep moving
every day until the primary is held.
If I am defeated (which I do not
anticipate) I pledge my loyal sup
port to all the nominees of the party
who win in the primary.
I ask every voter to carefully con
sider my candidacy and give me a
chauce. Respectfully, J.L.Coluns.
