Educator tells Farmers Mak-
ing Money Must Not Be
Their Only Object in Life.
Chicaso. IH-. Jul' 16. Before the
Country Teachers association of the
Illinois Normal last evening, L. H. Bai
ley spoke on "Leadership in Country
Life." He said:
The reconstruction of the open coun
try must depend in the main on the ef
forts of the country people themselves.
"We are glad of all interchange of pop
ulations; the influx of country blood
has thus far been the salvation of cities;

piratlons into the country, and it is still
necessary to call on the cixies for labor

Profitable Farming: "Sot Sufficient Object
It is the first duty of every man to
earn a decent living for himself and
those dependent upon him. We must
all learn how to be better farmers; and
a countryman cannot expect to have
rurh influence on his time and commu
nity until he makes his farm pay in dol
lars and cents- ,
But the final, object in life is not to
make money, but to use the money in
developing a higher type of endeavor
and a better society. The richest farm
ing regions do not necessarily have the
best society or even the best living con
ditions Tlio Insufficiencies In Country Life.
I asked recently why the farmers de
sired to move to town. The answer was
to secure gool school facilities, to es

chjTch privileges and to be able to
enjoy oclal advantages. In other words,

Something new in aviation The "Wil
Ham Knobloch Airship which is to be
driven by compressed air pressure. The
model Is now - on exhibition in New
York. The model is only two feet long,
but it has flown on one explosion 35
feet in the air and 60 feet forward. The
principle that lifts and drives the car
is much the same as that which gov
erns the rising of a skyrocket. No gas
bag, planes or rudder are needed,
though the above model carries two jud
ders. The car is propelled and steered
by rapid and powerful explosions
against beds of compressed air. The
principle is not unlike the gasoline en
gine excepting that In this case there
are no piston rods. The place of the
piston rods is taken by a cushion of
air at a pressure of 1200 pounds to the
square inch. Knocloch says the car will
make from 70 to 90 miles an hour.

Insurance Revision a Main

MANY LOBBIES AT
(Horace H. Shelton.)
Austin, Texas, July 16. The advance
guard of the members of the Texas leg
islature are already gathering in Aus
tin for the special session, which will
open on Tuesday. Owing to resigna
tions, there are a number of important
chairmanships of committees vacant
and those aspiring to get in the lime
light by filling these positions are on
The lobby is also showing up. The
brewery and whisky Interests are not
going to be caught napping, although
the call says nothing in regard to the
traffic. T,he impression seems to pre
vail that governor Campbell has some
thing up his sleeve and that a number
of surprises will be sprung.
The Texas Commercial secretaries,
through J. A. Arnold, will also be on
hand as the watch dog of the commer
cial interests and the labor leaders will
also have their legislative committee
Although the specific call for the leg
islature says that the purpose is to
amend or repeal the new insurance law
that is creating less interest than any
other feature. The great possibilities of
action either m regard to statewide
prohibition through the enactment of a
statute, or by forcing submission by
calling a constitutional convention, is
the center of all interest.
The message of governor Campbell to
the special session is being awaited
with interest. All those who have ar
rived in Austin are making a hard ef
fort to get an inkling of what it will
be, but so far the governor has put the
Sphinx to shame for silence- It is gen-
erally believed that his first message
will deal solely with the insurance
question and that, if he has any other
plans in view for the legislature, they
will be submitted In messages which
will follow Still there may be a sur
prise sprung right at the beginning of
Havfkins to Go.
There is no doubt that the governor
intends to get rid of insurance commis
sioner Hawkins, but his plans on this
point have not been announced, nor has
he Indicated who will be the commis
sioner's successor. As Hawkins's ap-

governor will submit nis name with the
understanding that the senate will not
confirm the appointment, and this will
leave the governor free to appoint
whom he may desire. Another possibil-
Ity is that the governor will Ignore the
existance of Mr. Hawkins and suDmit
the name of another person.
Those best informed, say that the
governor will not act in regard tq any
recommendation on the liquor traffic,
until he ascertains whether or not Col
quitt Is nominated. In case Colquitt is
selected as the standard bearer of the
party, the probable course of the gov
ernor has been admirably outlined In an
interview by state senator B. F. Looney
of Greenville, who says:
"While there Is serious diversity ot
opinion among lawyers as to whether
the legislature has the power under
the present constitution to enact state
wide prohibition, no one anywhere ques
tions its power to regulate the traffic
to the extent of abolishing drinking
saloons, and to create zones around ed
ucational institutions, within which the
sale of intoxicating liquors may be ab
"It Is my opinion that if Mr. Colquitt
should be nominated and if the vote in
dicates tliat he is the plurality nomi
nee, the special session will probably
be advised by the governor to abolish
the saloon outright and to prohibit the
sale of intoxicating liquors within a
certain distance from certain institu
tions, both within and without certain
cities and towns.
"Furthermore, If the submission of
the constitutional amendment is again
adopted by the people at the primaries,
the special session will no doubt be
urged to cill a constitutional conven
tion in order ito propose and submit to
the people the amendment demanded.
This can be done by a majority vote.
"It nny be asked whether or not the
legislature has the power to call a con- j ing to spread to the Blackfoot and Flat
stitutional convention, and if so, wleth- I head forests. The failroads have 200
er it can limit the convention to the
j consideration alone of the prohibition
I "In my opinion both of these suggest
ed questions would be answered in the
a.flrmatlve. There is no express provis
ion In our constitution empowering the
legislature to call a constitutional con
vention, but there Is nothing expressly
forbidding such action.
"We have heretofore had three, con
stitutional conventions called under
similar circumstances to the one pro
posed. ..Our present constitution was

Engages in Debate "With
Speaker Cannon in Kan
Kansas City, Mo., July 16 The or
ganization of a new political party in
the United States was denied here by
Gifford PInchot at a meeting of the
Knife and Fork club. Speaker Joseph,
Cannon also attended the banquet and
engaged in a debate with the deposed
forester. Considerable attention was
paid to the conservation muddle, and
as to who is the father of conserrs.
"J. W. Powell was the father of con
servation," shouted the speaker durinff
his talk. It was Powell, said Cannon,
who appealed to him when he was
chairman of the house committee of
appropriations 4o do something: for con
servation. Turning to Mr. PInchot, Mr. Canaon
'I have the greatest personal regard
for you, but I understand that you ara
now engaged in conservation work lor
the organization of a new party." Can
non shook hands with PInchot at th
conclusion of his speech and apolo
gized because he had to leave without
hearing him. N
In his speech, Mr. Pinchot said:
"I believe a new school of politics
is coming to the United States. This
new school wlH decide whether tha
country shall be governed by money
for profit or by man for human -welfare.
I made a speech In St. Paul re
cently and in connection with that
speech somebody mentioned the or
ganization of a new party. Mr. Can
non's reference to me in that connec
tion doubtless is due o his having read
some of the headlines at that time. The
essential qnestions before the people
now are outside of party lines. In look-
