JA THE VILLAIN'S WEAKNESS.
' Jerorao K. Jeromo, hi his amusing satire,
'"Stagelnud," points out that if the villaiu iu
"' tho mclodrainma only had gumption enough
not to return to tho sceno of the crime after
thtaccond aet he would never got punished
' '".or the murder. But he has a fatal weakness
or returning to tho ecoue of tho crime. lie
liocivloarns anything from observation. All
of his predecessors have boon rounded up aud
turned over to justice in tho third or fourth
act because they couldn't keep away from the
sceno of the crime. Hut, nevertheless, the
villain, when ho might easily be putting thou
sands of miles between himself and the place
iu which ho bludgeoned the beuevolout old
gentleman who owned tho estates, comes pok-
around just in time to be nipped up.
Aii&jo Vt is with Theodore Roosevelt!
If only Col. Kooscvolt had had gumption
enough to stay out of politics when ho was
well out, and nothing proven against him, all
would have been well with his reputation.
J3ut he has the stage villain's incapacity to re
sist the temptation to return. Therefore the
restates go to Woodrow Wilson. Tho papers
aro no longer concealed. Tho hcroiue, iu this
case Miss Presidency, does not have to marry
tho villain and live unhappily ever afterward.
Egotism is the undoing of all villains. Tho
.; villain of politics, and of the stage,

In real life, have a common quality. Each
.believes that although nobody olso was ever
clevor enough to fool all of tho people rtll of
the time ho can escape detection and live to a
good old age in the enjoyment of the swag,
and in tho keener enjoyment of tho feeling
that the world is made up of virtuous numb
culls and offers rich pickings for a brilliant
inwho is not handicapped by conventional
When Col. Roosevelt arrived at Khartum
upon his return from tho African jungles he
MH tho most popular man in tho world. A
lecorous return to America and a dignified
contentment with private life would have left
hiin iutact aud uuassailablo as a popular hero
.and a great man. Any avonuo of useful acti
tiyity would have been open to him. But tho
linogalomaniac could not. bo decorous; could
sndt bo dignified. IIo must ueeds begin at a
Ijhammcdan university in Cairo, and keep it
'until ho arrived at Osawatomio, haraugu-
tho world, denouncing tho ilesh and tho
1, and blowing his own personal bazoo, to
)vn undoing, lie must needs run about
pa slapping Kings and Emporors upon

as agents to tho fact that they did not

ho had reached Ljcmdou ho had becoino the butt
of ridiculo in the comic journals of tho continent
aud that boforo ho had reached Now York
ho had mado it plain that tho American peo
ple must choose him foi thoir King and make
a boufiro of their constitution, or sit upon him
with tho forco of a ton of brick obeying the
law of gravitation.
Even after tho dobaclo at Chicago, which
was proof enough to all of his supportors. who
were sane, that he had no political futuro aud
could only mako a mqnkoy of himself by
clamoring for proferment that would bo for
ever deuicd him, egotism kept tho scales upon
his eyes. Still, like tho villain in tho play,
like tho villain in real life, ho relied upon his
fancied ability to keep overybody in tho dark
to keep the "papera" in his possession and to
gt "the estates" and tho heroine.
That such of his former accomplices as
Boies Penrose aud Johu D. Archbold would
be hanging around aud would como forward
in the third act and givo him away, ho could
not bolievo. Thoy had helped to do tho mur
der and assisted in dragging tho body into a
wood and burying it. Why should they not
remain as silent as the grave they had made
with a spado iu tho shade? Why should they
peach upon a pal?
But they did! It is always bo! The villain
never has had sufficient gumptiou to resist tho
scone of tho crime after tho second act, and he
has never seou the curtain go down with tho
heroine in his arms.
Well, after all, his weakness does result in
everybody in tho cast finding out exactly
what's what and who's who! It is rough upon
tho vttlaiu, of course. But the. villain who
has been making up to the heroine aud telling
her that somo one else set upon her beloved
great uncle, helpless iirhis wheel chair, and
mauled him to death, desorves rough treat
Tho Tariff is tho issue, aud that means that
the real issue is our bread and butter.
Tho country is prosperous today and the
people are not going to take any chance with
another political party new or old.
If the Republicans who had preferred Roose
velt feel like thoy would rather have another
muss of Democratic times than to voto for
Taft, it's up to them. They will certainly get
their fill of "sour grapes," in the event of a
Somo of our English friends of tho Freo
Trade variety indulge in prematura rejoicings
at what they regard as the death kuoll of Pro
tection in the United States. But possibly
they aro premature. There is time for a good
deal of thinking before Election Day.
Foreign-born voters aro among the most
energotic defendors of the American Protect
tivo Tariff. Thoy know what tho Free-Trade
system is abroad and this, porhaps chiefly, is
tho reason thoy aro hero iu America to win
and enjoy tho highest staudard of wages iu
Ereo-Trado means businoss damnation for
this country. Philadelphia suffered most
cruolly whon Clovolantl was President, for ho
put into forco aud ofFect the the Wilson bill,
which nearly destroyed tho industries of this
country and which resulted iu soup-houses in
Frank ford and Kensington, which brought re
proach and misery to our noblo workingmeu

of recent dato shows:
