Brickbats versus Bouquets.
. Bryan has kicked Gov. Haskell out of
the Treasurership of the National Demo
cratic Committee, and the Governor, with
a Standard Oil tin can, is now running
amuck somewhere in the West.
But he has not kicked that mysterious
$300,000 out of his National Committee's
Treasury, although Haskell admits it was
dropped into the contribution box bvthc

lie had their backs turned and were busy
pleading with the farmers for $1.00 con
Herman Ridder has been selected to
fill Haskell's shoes. Ridder has been
throwing brickbats at Bryan since 1890
up to July 1008, when he began a fusillade
of. bouquets; it is presumed that a prom
ise of a position in the Cabinet or Am
bassadorship to Germany is the reason of
this change bf heart on the part of Rid
der. A few samples of brickbats thrown
are here enumerated, viz :
Brickbat No. 1 "His (Bryan's) elec
tion would surely cause a disturbance of
the industrial and economic development
of the country."
Brickbat No. 2 "We deem a Repub
lican victory less dangerous forthe coun
try than the election of Bryan."
Brickbat No. 3 "Nothing better could
happen to the party (Democratic) than
to get nu oi this incubus."
Brickbat No. 4 "The East is too con
servative and level headed to give a ma
jority to a man (Bryan) who on economic
questions is ignorant, and who, prompt
ed by his confused notions, would grasp

'The Man Who Was.'
The current number of the Literary
Digest discusses the Haskell affair, and
contains a portrait of the some-time
Treasurer of the Democratic National
Committee, with the query, "Who
Charles N. HaBkell?" A sutllcient ans
wer to this will be found in the title of
one of Kipling's stories "The Man Who
Was." HaBkell is the man who was
In the national councils of the Demon-
racy he is now wow est ; yet, in view of
his record, he cannot well be described
as a non est man.
.Haskell's latest appearance is in anj
attempt to pose as still existent, and he
charges thePresident with having brought
the suits in equity to cancel the deeds for
Indian lands fraudulently obtained by
Haskell, "for the purpose of Republican-
izing about twenty-thousand Indian
voters." As to this, the Attorney for'
the Creek nation says that all the suits j
in question except one were begun in
1007, while Oklahoma was still a Terri
tory, and that Haskell has thus far failed
to answer them on the merits, but has
confined his answers to dilatory and tech-
nical averments and motions. Haskell's
views of the matter seem to be that he
should not be compelled to disgorge his
raudulent holdings becauso this might
"Uepublicanize" tlu? Indians whom ho
has cheated, and fs thereore a political
trick. Evidently, Haskell is not only

For County Commissioner
The efficiency of Thomas C Madden
as a County Commissioner has been so
thoroughly proved during the term now
(rawing to a close, few words can be
needed to show the wisdom of Ins re
election. He has not only been faithtul
in the discharge of his duties, but he has
brought to that service ripe cnuusil and
iin eye single to the good of the people
whose interests he has in part had in
charge. The position of Commissioner
is one of the most trying in the county,
mid demands good judgment, patience,
foresight and integrity on the pait of the
incumbents. All these qualities Mr.
Madden is well-known to possess, lie
has made an oxeeptioiinlly popular Com
missioner, and it is in the air that he
will be re-elected to the post which he
has tilled with so much credit to him
self and satisfaction to the taxpavers of
For County Commissioner.
J. K. HORNBECK.
Elsewhere we have, as we believe,
voiced the sentiment of a majority of
the voters of Wayne in regard to the
candidacy of Thos. C. Madden for the
od'ice of Commissioner. We are also sure
that there is an equally favorable senti
ment prevailing as to the elliciene.y and
deserts of his colleague for the past
three years, J. K. I Limbeck. These
two men constituted a majority of the
board, and while if there had been
found anything reprehensible in its ac
tion during the term, they would have
been held justly accountable for it, they
are equally entitled to such commenda
tion as is justly duo the board for its
most praiseworthy record. Mr. Horn
beck has a clear perception of the pub
lic needs, and also of individual rights
in the management of county affairs.
He has not been and will-not be in
fluenced by selfish considerations in the
performance of his duties, but will at
tend to them hereafter as heretofore
with a desire to do justice to all inter
ests, and with a due sense of responsi
bility. It is essential that both Mr.
Hornbeck and Mr. Madden shall be
elected, if Republican supremacy in the
board, with all that implies of economy
and good management, is to be main
tained. For State Senator,

Now that (he campaign is becoming
healed, inquiry is frequently mode re-
I specting any law forbidding tho use of
' the American Hag in connection with
I political designs. The War Department,
I in reply to these, inquiries, announces
that there is no federal statute prohibit
I ing the use of the national Hag for any
I purpose, beyond section 5 of the act of
Feb. L'O, 1!KV, which forbids the regis
tration of any trademark comprising
"the Hag or coat-of-arms or other insig
nia of the I'nited States, or any simula
tion thereof." Some of the Slates, how
, ever, have statutes forbidding the uso
of either nitional or State Hag for im
proper purposes, and theU. S. Supreme
i Court, has sustained the authority of a
State to enact such laws. In Pennsyl-
1 vania, (he act nf May 23, 1907, prohibits
the use of either national or 'State Hag,
or any 'representation thereof, in con
nection with 'advertising, or the placing
thereon of "any word, tigure, mark or
picture, design, drawing, or any adver
tiseinent, of any nature ;" but with i
proviso that it shall not apply to certain
cases ''disconnected from any advertise
ineijt, nor "to any patriotic or politi
cal demonstrations or decorations."
Thus the Hug may lawfully be used for
the usual political campaign purposes.
Bryan's Mythical Heirship.
Bryan still continues his quest for es
tates locked up in the political chancery
to await the claims of missing heirs, and
insists that he is the real "heir of the
lioosevelt policies," audi the man best
qualified to carry them into effect. But
he has been repudiated by Roosevelt,
and thus far is unable to read his titl
clear. There appears to be a wicked
uncle in the caseUncle Sam bent on
keeping him out of possession; and the
probability is that in November Bryan
and Kern will prove to be the hapless
"Babes in the Wood," on the bank of
Salt (liver, done to death by the wicked
uncle, and buried under leaves in the
form of ballots.
Tiik recent death of Senator Allison,
of Iow a, Recalls the different views of the
ige limit in politics thirty-live years
ngo and now. In 1S73 Allison was a
candidate lor the U. h. Senate, to suc
ceed Senator Harlan, and the latter -was
a candidate for re-election. The strong
est argument used against Harlan vas
us advanced age, which, it was con
tended, unfitted him for .further service
in" public life. Ho was fifty-two years
old. This 'view prevailed, and Allison
was elected. A lew mouths before li(H

F.tiiki, IUhkvmouk, the'distinguishod

why marriages between American "soci

often prove failures, is because rich
American women, as a rule, "are not
