"Lord, boro it into tho Loads of tbo Domo
$ ocratic party that now ia tbo tioio to pray for

IF ALL WOULD SPEND ALL
"Spend all you have. It is foolish to
scrimp nnd savo," says Prof. Patton, of tho
University of Pennsylvania. "Men and women
should spend thoir earnings."
Not a bad idea if everybody played fair.
If each and every oue of us spout hid money
as fast as he earned it we could all bathe in
an oudless flowing stream of rippling currency
like sunshine and babbling brooks. Hard
times and "stringencies" would bo as raro as
blue rain drops. We would all be busy and
happy. There would be work for everybody.
Tho wheels of industry nnd the merry-go
'rounds of pleasure would turn like mad.
But suppose somebody on the sly stopped
spending and began to hold out on the rest of
us! The game would go to the' bad and be
come as heart-breaking as ever.
.That's the only drawback to tho professor's
plan. Spend all you have but take caro
every one else is doing tho same. New York
Tho mendacities of the last campaign were
-in sumo instance of a minor character and
some others were simply appalling. State
ments made by the candidate of the third term
party would not bear examination in so many
cases as to leave his reputation sadly sulliod.
Among .the minor mendacities was that of
Governor Wilson in protesting over and over
,ugain that tho Democratic party never was for
;.f FreoTrado and never would be. Me kuow
perfectly woll that Free-Trade was the conven
tional term otherwise called TaritT for revenue
, only, and that it is called Free-Tiade when a
customs Tariff is built on the principle of no
Protection to anybody aud is worked out
solely on the basis of revenue. It is precisely
Tsuclla Tariff that tho Democratic party pledges
itself'to give tho country, particularly when
tho first plank of the Baltimore platform de
clares that all Protection is unconstitutional.
Governor Wilson was not honest enough to
meet that question squarely and deal with it
as ordinary men do and admit that his Tariff
is known as a Free-Trade one.
- Another of the mendacities of tho campaign
that was of tho shocking kind was that ono
?V 'sent over to London to find out market prices
of meats compared with prices in Now York.
But a fow days afterward a woman, who is
head of tho National Economic League, return-
ed from Europe from half a yoirs stay, study
ing tho same question and reporting that
living was higher in Europe than in America.
Then came this emissary back to Now York to
report that roast beef, foroxamplo.was twenty
? . four cents a pQnnd in Now York aud only
. -thirteen eonls in London, although tho beef
"'was brought from America to London to bo
i- sold at half the price charged in New York.
' , Thousands of people bolieved that false
Hr uoou. aii along tuo line tuo people wororou
with Btatemouts allogod to bo truo, which thoy
who mado them knew could not be truo nnd
which were not truo. Such falsehoods were
p''; repeatod by tho Democratic prees without
-.-limit. ; rBuflfalo News. , J :'. ',' -,.
IT CpULD HOT HAPPEN, BUT IT DID.
"It could not happen," blandly assures
Editor Bailoy in reply to an inquiry as to
whother it is truo that Free-Trade would re
sult in a great influx of foreign-made goods
and consequent idlo factories on this side of
tho water. Remomboring 1893 to 189G, folks
nro likely to recall tho story of tho man who
wrote to a lawyer for advice, without tolling
just whore ho was." "They oan't put you in
jail for that," replied tho lawyer with great
confidence. "Mnybo nut, but thoy havo,"
wrotoback the man. Johnfltowu(L,a.)Leador.
Tho Democratic national platform indorses
the idea of only ono term for a prcsidont.
There is a growing necessity for this amend
ment to tho constitution. Political reform de
mands it. Tho oligibilty of a president to n
second term is full of menace tutho public
wolfarc. It makes tho spoils of office a con
sideration for public duty. It is corruption
of ono kind orauother from start to finish. A
one.term president is an independent, self
Of course, this change can be made only by
constitutional ameudment but in practice tho
rule may prevail. The one-term limit may be
declared in tho platforms nnd that would estab
ish tho practice. The Baltimore platform favors
the oue term'only. That iu effect wouldjmako
Governor Wilsou a four-year president, for ho
wouldn't go back on his platform. Of course
tho exigencies of tho situation did not permit
tho Chicago convention to ndopt a ouc-term
plank, but hereafter Republican conventions
will probably see that iuoligility to a second
term will become the expressed sentiment of
the party. Ohio State Journal.
REJOICING IN GERMANY.
German uowspapers are rejoicing over the
election of Governor Wilson to tbo Presidency
of the UnitedSlates.
Thoy hail his election with satisfaction, be
lieving that it will result in closer and better
trade relations between Germany and tho
Tho Tngoblatt says: "Germany greets with
pleasure tho return to a liberal trade policy
and a reduced tariff. This will open an agree
able prospect for permanent and just trado
relations, an agreemout for which Germany
has long been sighing."
The Taeglischo Rundschau says: "Germany
has every reason to bo satisfied with the result
of the election in the United States." It ex
presses tho belief that Governor Wilson will
alter what it describes ua tho inconsiderate
American foreign policy.
Wo recall that the German newspapers talk
ed along these linos when Cleveland was elect
ed in 1S92, and .wo know what happened to
the pottery industries in this country, and es
pecially in this city, after that ovont. And
wo know how the pottery manufacturers of
Germany profited by tho changes made in tho
Taiiff schedules in 1893-4.
Wo sincerely hopo that tho mistake mado
during the Cleveland administration will not
be made during the Wilson administration.
Governor Wilsou says honest businoss men
need havo no fear. That assuranco is a pleas
ing one. Trenton Gazotto.

THE DOCTOR QUIT TALKING.
A doctor who bad a custom of cultivating the lawn and
walk in front of his homo every spring, ougaged O'Brien
to do tbo job. Ho went away for three days and when he
returned found O'Brien waiting for hia money. The
doctor was not.flatiefled with bis work and laid:
"O'Brien tbo walk is covered with, gravel tnd dirt and
in my estimation it's a bad job."

Three years ago Midway and luo sur
rounding country began to think it was
time to have a twentieth century school
plant. They began to feel that It
would be well to have a building as
good as any of their churches. At
first the general public shook Its head
and mumbled under Its breath, but
gradually It began to scu the wisdom
of the movement and at last voted the
While the trustees planned a school
that should be n credit architecturally,
they did not forget to buy enough

stands well back from the turnpike
on flvo acres of tine bluo grass land.
Behind and to one sldo of the school
building is a comfortable Stable stalled
to hold twenty-four horses.
As Is usual In school affairs nil over
tho country, the trustees built this
school with rn ldcn of Its taking care
of all the pupils lu tho district for the
next fifty years. Now, after only two
nnd n half years, they nre beginning to
seo tho natural result of n One grow
ing school spirit among both children
nnd parents. Today live grade and two
high school teachers manago to teach
tho 250 boys aud girls that are en
rolled. This number Is just fifty more
than were enrolled last year. It Is
now plain that the school will have
to ndd a new tfacher each year to take
care of tho steady Increase, nnd In five
more years an addition will Imve to be
built lo take care of the children. Be
sides this yearly Increase, tho trustees
claim that very few of those enrolled
oven try to play truant. Ample play
grounds, clean, warm schoolrooms,
comfortable single desks, light and
pleasant surroundings mako school go

for "plnylng out" has been removed.

Washington, November 18th.
William J. Bryan left Sunday eve
ning tor hia winter homo at Miami,
Florida, whero he expects to hiber
nate until along about the time for
the special session ol Congress with
out taking with him tho alighest as
suranco that ho will ho able to have
hia way as to (he extent and character
ol the tariff revision which is to go
out to the country with the Demo
cratic stump. He epent a week in
Washington surveying tbc field whero
tho tariff fray is to occur and consult
ing with various persons. Ho learn
ed nothing to encourage or console
him hut on the contrary there is
every indication of a studied purpose
to reject his leadership of the party.
Simultaneously with his departure
it was learned that Senator Sim
mons ol North Carolina, who wantB
tho chairmanship of tho Senate Fi
nance Committee, and who is called
tho Aldrich of Democracy, Represen
tative Oscar Underwood, Chairman of
the Ways and Means Committeo and
Democratic loaders of tho House, and
President-elect Woodrow Wileon al
ready have had a consultation on
tho tariff question and aro agreed as
to tho general course that shall be fol
lowed. This news is very important, show
ing that the .'schedules (are to be han
dled conservatively and that tho radi
cal Bort of tariff revision downward
(or which Bryan stands is to be ta
booed. Bryan is a strong advocate of free
raw materials, while Underwood aud
Simmons are as vigorously opposed
to free raw materials, I'.csumably
Wilson is going to tako sides with
Underwood and Simmons as to the
kind of revision that shall be given
the country. Bryan elands for free
wool, free iron, free sugar, free lum
ber and a loug ttcc list. Apparently
ho is not to have his way as to these
Every sign now indicates that Bryan
ii going up agaitiBt tho etiffoat kind
of comhination in hit own party a
combination that is strong at both
ends of tbe Capital, and that ho'cau
not hopo to overthrow. Spjaker Clark
is not on speaking ttrms with Bryan.
While Bryan has been here, they have
not met'. Tbo friends ol Mr. Clark do
not believe it would bo safe for htm
and Bryan lo meet.
Bryan and Uuderwood are at swords
point 8. Underwood openly denounced
him on tho floor of the House at tho
last 808slon and their relations havo
not improved any since then. Bo it is
difficult to seo.. how Bryan can make
any headway in the house.

from this trouble. II y feet began to a well
