which he did so much to start he

of a Republican newspaper.
Gone Out of Date.
The New York World says there
is in progress in Moatclair a "moth
ers' movement" agaiust the "menace
of the moving-picture show." The
town authorities have been over
whelmed with letters from corre
spondents protesting 'as mothers and
residents" against licensing these
forms of amusement as "harmful and
detrimental," and the agitation has
been taken up by the women's clubs
and eclectic societies.
There was once a generation of
mothers who would not have found
it necessary to appeal to the Town
Council for the protection of their
children's morals. They would have
'aid down the law at home and it
would have been obeyed, with a full
realization of the consequences that
would follow its violation. The do
mestic flat would have gone forth and
that would have been the end of the
The mothers of the old-fashioned
type would have resented any delega
tion of maternal authority to a mu
nicipal body. They knew and exer-:
cised their powers of home control
and jealously guarded them. They
decided how their children should
amuse themselves, and woe to tht
youngster who disregarded their in
structions! Is the old race of moth
ers extinct, and with them the home
restraint of children?
It does look as if the old race 01
mothers have gone out of date. But
it is an easy matter to remedy the
vicious moving picture show. There
are moving pictures and niovini pic
tures. Some are rood and some are
vicious. To protecs the children from
the vicious picture is easy enough.
See that the people who operate the
show are good people and will ex
hibit no vicious pictures. Then your
children are safe. Without reflecting
on any others, wa take pleasure in
saying that -Mr. dambati, who runs
? he Theato in this city, has all of
his pictures censored before they are
shipped to him. See his advertise
ment in another column.
Exit the Old Guard.
When Congress adojurned some
weeks ago there disappeared from
the senate a few men who have stood
consistently for fhe interests of the
people, and a large number who
closed their public careers of spokes-1
men for the trusts and robber cor
porations by voting to whitewash and
retain William Lorimer in the sena
torial seat he occupies.
To the "old guard" the sound of
the gavel of the vice president strik
ing his. desk as the hands of the clock
pointed to midday resembled the thud
of earth falling upon the political
coffins of their departed leaders and
comrades. The list of men relegated
to oblivion includes:
Nelson W. Aldrich, ?f Rhode Isl
Morgan G. Buikeley, of Connecti
Julius C. Burrows, of Michigan.
Thomas H. Carter, of Montana.
Chauncey M. Depew, of New York.
Charles Dick, of Ohio.
Frank P. Flint, of California.
Eugene Hale, of Maine.
John Kean, of New Jersey.
Samuel H. Pilea, of Washington.
(Nathan B. Scott, of West Virginia.
With the exception of Aldrich, all
if the above men voted for Lorimer's '
?etention in the senate. Aldrich J
vould have done so had he been in
rVashington, being Lorimer's "bell
vether." Another batch or bunch or
jroup will retire next year.
Mew and better men will take the
)laces of these i ingsters, who have '
>een sent to the rear by the people. 1
\. change is coming over the country,
t may take a split in both parties to
iring it. but it it; coming, and, wich
t, is coming relief for the peopie
rom the oppressions of the tan it
)arons, who have been plundering

Gave Senator Cullom a Slap.
Mount Morris College, at Oregon, ,
11., Senator Shelby M. Cullom's alma
nater, has turned its Cullom pictuie
o the wall. An Oregon dispatch to
he Chicago Tribune says: "The stu
lents and faculty In a mass meeting, ,
imid unusual : ^enes, unanimously i
idopted the following resolutions:
Inasmuch as Senator Lorimer was
ipparently elected to his present of
ice through bribery and therefore not
rightly entitled to his seat in the
United States senate, and inasmuch
is the attitude of Senator Cullom had
much to do with the vote allowin?
Senator Lorimer to hold his seat, and
inasmuch as civic progress is serious
ly hindered and political corruption
greatly augmented by Senator Lori
mer continuing in office, and (inas
much as Senatcr Cullom was once a
student of the Rock River seminary,
aow Mount Mo-ris college, and inas
much as this institution has always
stood for purity in politics and civic
righteousness, therefore, be it re
solved, by the students and faculty
3f Mount Mortis college, assembled
in mass meeting, that we condemn
the action of Senator Cullom in vot
ing as he did in the Lorimer case, by
which act we believe him to have cov
ered his own proud record with
shame and also to have brought Into
disrepute the founders of our college,
as well as the people of this state, in
setting before the country a standard
far too low for this generation to ac
Gives His Reasons.
On last Monday Governor Blease
vetoed the act which he himself
urged the legislature to pass for the
investigation of the old State Dis
pensary Winding-up Commission. He
gave as a reason for the veto that
there was no use for the investiga
tion, as the New Winding-up Com
mission could attend to that business.
He has thus vransferred the investi
gation to his own appointees, and
instructed them to investigate every
body, including himself. One of the
members of the New Winding-up
Commission is Mr. Dominlck, late law
partner of the Governor. "While the
members of the new commission are
all friends of mine and personal sup
porters," Governur Blease said Mon
day, "I have asked that they make
a rigid investigation of all my acts as
State Senator, . private citizen and
governor of the State. I want every
thing to come out." We do not know
what charges Felder mayj make
against the governor, but, whatever
they might be, if we were in the
-jovernor's place, we would want
them paseed on by a commission of
impartial citizens of the State, rather
than a commission of our special
friends and personal supporters.
