When it's big news, the people always depend upon The Herald to give it to
them. The crowd in front of The Herald office Saturday night and the way the
telephones rang in the editorial offices, demonstrated this. The people wanted
news of the election and they got it accurate news, too.
Giving the People a Chance
THE city of Philadelphia tried, through numerous banking houses in the United
States and abroad, to sell an issue of $5,000,000, 4 percent, 30 year bonds.
The market refused to absorb the bonds, and public improvements in
the city were seriously retarded. Then somebody thought of the brilliant plan of
offering the bonds to the people direct, and in a very short time the entire issue
History affords a parallel case in the second bond issue of Cleveland's adminis
tration, when millions were saved to the government by dealing directly with the
public without the intervention of bankers or brokers.

APOLITICAL scrap in the territories over framing the new constitutions will
be most deplorable. There is no excuse for a partisan division over the
election of delegates.
The wisest way is to elect the best men in the territories to frame the consti
tutions wholly regardless of partisan affiliations. The attempt to frame con
stitutions by partisan conventions along strictly partisan lines will almost cer
tanly delay statehood several years, to no good end- If the Republicans should
frame the constitution, the Democrats would exert themselves to the utmost to
defeat the constitution when referred to the people; and the same thing would
happen if the Democrats should gain control of the constitutional conventions and
frame the fundamental law of the new states, for the Republicans would take keen
delight in bringing about the defeat of such a constitution.
The fairest and wisest way by far is to nominate non-partisan tickets in each
county and to sead as delegates the men holding the highest vote.-,.

her more keenly because it was their
She had had all a young girl's
dreams of the idealistic beauty and
tenderness of the honeymoon. And that
dream had been daily shattered. She
had known that with most married
people there came in time slight disa

had felt they could never come to War

covered with perspiration. A moment

They Secure A Treasure.
At first they had taken their meals

the little kitchen. Anna was a capable,
good natured German girl who at once
took a real "liking" for Helen and a
hearty interest in the welfare of the
Just how fortunate they had been in
securing the services of Anna Helen
did not realize until they lost her some
time later. And that many things, even
in their unsettled state, ran smoother
under Anna's management than they
would later on was something else she
could not know.
Most of the days Helen spent in the
shops buying curtains, bed and table
linen and the many small housefur
nishlngs. Only the furniture and rugs
and a few essentials had been bought
before they moved in, for Helen had
thought the other things could be se
lected to a better advantage afterward.
And now some of the happiest days
of her marriage, though that too she
did not know, were spent in buying
these things. Shopping is an unfailing
source of pleasure to all women at
all times. But to the bride the buy

POLITICAL APPOINTEES Fanc
XXI. THE BRITISH CRISIS.
LONDON, Eng., July 26. One princi
pal factor in the politics of Great
Britain, as of every other Euro
pean country, is exceedingly difficult
for Americans to appreciate or under
stand. That factor is the relation of
religion to politics as manifested in the
Institution of a state church. The abso
lute divorce of church and state in the
United States has removed the religious
factor from among -he posibio political
problems. In Great Britain the church
still is powerful in politics, and in the
present battle between the unprlvilegejl
masses and the privileged classes it is
one of the chief bulwarks of the aristo
cracy. The Church of England is the
.state church in England; the Church of
Wales, a separate Institution of the An
glican order, is the established ehurch
of Wales and Monmouth; the Church
of Ireland, also Anglican, was disestab
lished by the efforts of Mr. Gladstone
in 1S69; the Church of Scotland is Pres
byterian. The Church of England, how
ever, is the principal church of the
realm, and it exercises a vast influence
in politics, and possesses a great deal
of direct political power.
Clergy- of High Order.
About half of the people of England
are communicants of the established
church. That the church lives up to Its
obligations as a religious body cannot
be denied. There are no better men
among all the Christian workers of the
world than are to be found among the;
clergy and the laity of the Church of
England. The church is torn by dis-J
sensions because of differences in opin
ion concerning forms of worship and
theological doctrines, but it is, taken as
a whole, a mighty power for good. So
as it is a relisrious bodv. it merits no
adverse criticism. As a political instl-
tution, accoraing to American sianaaras
and democratic Ideals, it is a survival
of medievalism without a redeeming'
Ik the Legal Church.
The establishment of the church by
law means the incorporation of the law
of the church into the law of the land.
It means' that the church courts have a
coercive jurisdiction over ecclesiastical
matters whch the civil power will en
force. It means that the bishops of the
church sit in the house of lords as leg
islators for all the people. It means
that the church convocation, a religious
legislature, is summoned by the crown
and can enact laws only by the assent
of the king. It means that the doc
trines and ceremonies of the church
have the statutory authority of acts of
parliament to support them. It means
that a large number of benefices, or,
positions, ranging from curate to arch
bishop, are at the disposal of the per
sons who hold Important offices in the
government. It means that the machin
ery of the civil government may be
brought Into operation to collect tithes
and assessments owed to the church. It
means that all other religious bodies
are placed at a disadvantage, that they
are not the equal in power, position or
respectability of the established church,
and that all persons outside the pale of
the state church must labor under so
cial, political and even economic dis
advantages which are unjust, unfair
The heads of tne church, the arch
bishops of Canterbury and York, and a
great number of the bishops, are ap
pointed by the political leaders of the
country. Now. despite what the English
say, political patronage in Great Bhlt
ain is not so very different from what
it is in the United States. If the Eng
lish system were transferred to the
United States we should witness the
spectacle of the archbishop of Cincin
nati of the American church being nam
ed by Frank H. Hitchcock as chairman
oC the national Republican committee,
possibly upon the recommendation of
Boss George B. Cox. In a Democratic
administration Charley Murphy and
Fingy Connors could designate the
bishops of Manhattan and Buffalo. The
cothedral of Chicago would be under
th e ecclesiastical dominion of Hinky
Dink and Bathhouse John.
England vs. America.
As a matter of fact, the head of the
Anglican church may be named by a .
Jewish Disraeli, a Unitarian chamber
lain, an Agnostic Balfour, or a Dis
senting Asquith, quite as often as by
an Anglican Gladstone. But this is not
half. In the rural districts, and to some
extent in the cities, the churches are
the private property of the landlord
upon whose land they are situated. In
such cases the landlord has the abso
lute disposal of the patronage of the
church, called a "living." A living
means a life appointment as rector of
the' church without any regard to the
wishes of the congregation, and with
out any regard to the efficien
cy of .the incument. or his conduct
in office. These livings are sold. When
an Englishman hears that a municipal
political boss in an American city has

THE "didn't thinks" are a very
large community in fact, they
are all the members of every fam
ily but the mother.
If mother should join this band, the
whole family would sit down and gaze
blankly at one another and exclaim:
"Well, the idea! Mother didn't think.
Did you ever hear of anything so pre
posterous?" Mother has to accept "didn't think"
as an excuse for everything.
Father forgets some important com
mission, and his "Very sorry, my dear,
but I forgot it entirely," is accepted by
motber as ample excuse.
Sister forgets to attend to the duties
that have been left to her, and her "Oh,
mother, I'm so sorry, but, really, I for

Big brother forgets the important let

In after every one has finished.
Cheerfully, confidently and carelessly
they proffer the time-worn excuse, and
that ends it.
They All Forget.
They all forget, and they all take ad
vantage of the ever-ready forgiveness.
But suppose mother began to forget
what consternation and havoc would
reign In the didn't think family!

cousins. But when a profligate, inde

ten or fifteen churches, sellh the job of

bidder for life, that is not corruption
that is English, and therefore right.
A clergyman marries the daughter of
a wealthy man, and for a wedding gift
,the bride's father buys a living for his
ecclesiastical soninlaw, and thereby as
sures him a position and an income for
life, wholly without regard to the
young clergyman's moral, mental or re
ligious fitness for the place. Almost
every day the London papers carry ad
vertisements announcing the sale of
these church livings. And yet, so pow
erful is custom, that not even the Non
Conformists look upon this business as
a scandal. When Non-Conformist min
isters are in control of the government
they make quite as much of their pow

It must be said, to the credit of the
good men In this church, that they man
age to keep the church wonderfully
pure and good in spite of the palpable
disadvantages of Its system of govern
ment. The day of the sporting country
parson is dead, and a clergyman no
longer can utterly neglect his duty, be
cause of the swift and sure punishment
of clerical and social ostracism visited
upon the unworthy. There was a time
when the neglect of duty on the part of
a great number of the clergymen made
the entire church ineffective, but this
is no longer true. The Church of Eng
land, as a religious body, is now a mil
itant organization and there are no
braver and better Soldiers of the Cross
in all Christendom than that type of
Anglican clergyman to be seen in the
present bishop of London.
But for all that, puritanical America
would be shocked by the public profes
sions of a great many of the good men
in the Anglican clergy. A great many
bishops and clergymen objected stren
uously to the Lloyd-George licensing
bill, aimed at the restriction of the
liquor traffic, on moral grounds be
cause it would Impair the value of
brewery shares held by widows, orphans
and clergymen. Last spring a prom
inent bishop of the church in a speech
in London, delivered before a temper
ance society, made a statement which
would have precipitated a riot In, any
American gathering of the kind. He
said that he was considering seriously
becoming a total abstainer. In expla
nation he said that In the last hop-picking
season he had gone down into Kent
and while there his supply of liquid
refreshment was exhausted. For four
days he took no alcohol. He was so
surprised by the fact "that he suffered
no particular Inconvenience on account
of his abstainence that upon his re
turn to the city he consulted his phy
sician and asked the medical man if,
In his opinion, it would be safe to con
tinue the abstinence Indefinitely. The
medical man assured him that perhaps
the experiment, although a bold one,
would not result disastrously. The bish
op said that as a result of that experi
ence he was almost tempted to become
a total abstainer, although as yet he
had not done so. The present govern
ment, Non-Conformist, last year intro
duced Into the schools the study of the
effect of alcohol upon the human sys
tem, and opened schools to the itiner

The principal political issue involv
