The election is over and every
body should feel'a sense of re
lief. The people have spoken,
and their will, for all practical
purposes, has been- recorded,
and by that record we all must
stand. In all political iampaigns
there are things said and done,
which could have been left un
said and undone: many methods
were resorted to which should
have been discountenanced, but
it is all over now. and so far as
we are concerned we shall not
be discouraged in our continued
labors for a purified primary
We shall ever feel under grate
ful obligations to those who
gave us their. encouragement
and support in our efforts to
maintain a principle-a princi
ple which we shall always strive
for-Local Self Government,
There are many who did not
support us, who favor this prin
ciple, but were led to vote against
it by partisan politics; there is
a strong hope within us that
those who were misled will -yet
learn that principle is far high
er and nobler than nirro* par
tisan politics,and will learn from
experience the ways of politi
cians who haye no regard for
principle,but anything to win; the
welfare of the country is not in
their line of consideration, office
seeking and office-getting is all
they want. and any means will
be resorted to for gratifying
their desires. The day will come
when those who fight for prin
ciple will be entrusted with pub
lic affairs, and the professional
polltician whose only thought is
self will be relegated to scorn
Washington, Sept. 12.-Ac
cording to the monthly report of
the Comptroller of the Currency
seven new banks with capital ag
gregating $1.205,000 were organ
ized in the Southern States dur
ing the month of August. The
total number organized in the
United States during the month
was thirty-three with a total of
$1,990,000 capital. These figures
show that the Southern States
- during that month had a larger
addition to their national bank
capital than all the other sections
of the country combined. Since
the passage of the act of March
14. 1900,.permitting the organi
zation of national banks with
less than $50,000 capital in small
towns thdre have been organ
ized in the South a total of 776
national banks with capital ag
gregating $42,953,500,figures ex
ceeded only by those for theMid
die Western States in which sec
tion there were organized 832
banks with $53,654,500 aggre
As a whole, Mr. Bryan's Mad
son Square Garden speech, in so
far as it dwelt with the estab
lished creed of Democracy, has
met with the approval of Demo
crat's all over the country. Some
of the most prominent men in
the party, however, including
Senator Bailey, Senator McLau
rin, Representative John Sharpe
Williams. and Representative
Livingston, are not prepared to
endorse the personal views of
the Nebraska orator in favor of
government ownership and oper
ation of railroads. It should be
clearly understood that Mr. Bry
an did not put his view on this
subject forward as the doctrine
of his party, but merely as -the
expression of his personal opin
ion that he was inclined to hold.
He made it clear that he was ex
p r e s s ing only his individual
views and expressly said that he
did not know that a majority of
his party favored government
ownership. This was a recogni
tion of the fact that if govern
ment ownership ever becomes an
issue to which the Democratic
party is committed it must be
made so by a majority of the
party, speaking through a na
tional convention. Unless in
the meantime, Mr. Bryan shall
be convinced that government
ownership would put too much
power in the hands of the Feder
al government, it is possible that
he may endeavor to havehis par
ty <teclare for it in the next na
tiona'l convention. If he fails it
will not be an issue in the cam-1
paign and whether Mr. Bryan or
some-other Democrat shall be]
the Presidential candidate the1
campaign will be fought oni the
platform of the party and not onj
the private views of any individ- 1
ual. At any rate, government
ownership is not in any way an
issue in the present campaign
and conservative Democrats who
do not agree with Mr. Bryan I
will not be misled by the Repub
lican construction that the ,way 1
to eliminate this question from ~
politics, once for all is to vote c
the Republican ticket this fall. c
While Republican politics are
endeavoring to fasten.- Mr. Bry- a
an's declaration on the Demo-s
cr-atic party they are much dis-a
quee by the fact that the most c
braska orator has been subject
ed has come from SouthernDem
ocrats. In other words, at a
time when their own party is
drifting rapidly in the direction
of radicalism and socialism, the
voice of conservatism is raised
in the South. This suggests the
idea that in the realignment of
parties that seems to be inevi
table in the near future theDem
ocratic party, dominated by its
leaders in the Southern States,
will be the organization that will
attract conservative men in all
sections. Sach a result would
not be surprising for the South
is the section of the country that
is traditionally opposed to cen
tralization and to that increasing
of the power of the Federal gov
ernment to interfere with local
affairs which would result from
radicalism in national legislation
The South is developing as nev
er before and- it is realized by
many Southern Democrats thr.t
if this development is to continue
unchecked the Southern States
must be left free to attract cap
ital and population by conserva
tive legislation and the Federal
government must not be given
authority to interfere with either
the social or the business affairs
of the States.

Ancient Stories of the Animars An
tipathy to Snakes.
There is no beast- In the world to
which more legendary virtues are at
tributed than the stag, partly owing
to the tale of St. Hubert, partly to a
supposed antipathy of stags toward
serpents, partly to a peculiar mass of
gristle In the shape of a cross which
is found in the animals heart. A
whole book might be written on the
miraculous power of the heart and the
efficacy of different parts of him
against the troubles of this evil world.
Fouilloux, in the sixteenth century,
gives a long list, and Master Robert
Topsel fills page upon page with them,
but our author in his solid English
fashion is chary of accepting such
Men say, he admits, that when a
stag is right old he beateth a serpent
with his foot till she be wroth, and
then eateth her, and then goeth to
drink, and then runneth hither and
thither till the water and venom be
meddled together, and maketh him cast
all his evil humors that he had in his
body, and maketh .his flesh come all
anew. But, he adds, with the solemnity.
of Herodotus himself, "Thereof make I
none affirmation." And this phrase
occurs again and again, for the Comte
de Foix is too great and noble a hunter
that any assertion of his should be
laughed at'-Macmillan's Magazine.
Gambling a Religioux Duty.
"Speaking of gambling," a mission
ary said, "I know of a sect that re
gards it as a religious duty, like fast
ing or prayer. This sect is the Hindoos.
They one day In each year gamble like
mad from sunrise till sunset The
day is the festival of the lamps, a
day sacred to Lakshun, the goddess of:
wealth. A tremendous lot of money
changes hands in Lakshun's honor. All
this gambling is done to test the finan
cial success that will attend on each
person throughout the year. If a gam
bler loses he knows a year of hard
luck is ahead of him. If he wins he
knows he may expect a twelvemonth
of prosperity. Strange to say, o good
deal of cheating accompanies this re
