THE recent elections were iougnt, won ana lost witn less money um a.u.y ouu
ilar elections in the history of this American republic This is the dope from
John Temple Graves, and John Temple has been writing and talking politics
since he was a boy, and he ought to know, sah. John Temple takes the reports of
expenses of the two parties and analyzes them in the analytical manner which only
John can assume, and he finds that it was a mighty cheap election and that it was
wen worth the price to the Democrats, who, by the way, got more satisfaction
out ef it and spent less money than the Republicans. This might be used as an
argament that the country is returning to the good old times of long ago when
it was not money but personality and ability that counted most in getting the
votes. Hardly that, however, for money is worth as much in elections these days
as ewr; it was merely an incident; that was all.
According to Mr. Graves, the heaviest individual contributor to the Republican
fund was congressman William B. McKinley, of Illinois, who laid five thousand dol
lars upon the altar of his party.
The old loyal Union League, of Philadelphia, reduced its lavish record of $50,000
to a modest sum of $5750.
The Republican .state committee of Louisiana laid only $2000 on the altar. Les
lie K. Shaw, exsecretary of the treasury and now treasurer of the Manufacturers'
club of Philadelphia, gave $1630. John Pitcairn gave $1000. The national Repub
lican committee dropped its stately record to a modest $887; ana the remainder of
the Republican, largess was in sums far below that amount.
William C. Beer, of New York City, leads the indiviaual Democratic list with
$5000. Colonel A. 3. Martin ana MajVSouth Trimble ana Capt J. C. Mayer, all
aallant Kentuckians, gave $500 each. The Democratic state committee of stalwart
old Georgia, strainea itself over $440, while Champ Clark, of Missouri; A. S. Burle
son, of Texas, ana Ollie James, of Kentucky, laia their oratorical talents ana their
raHrsad expenses freely upon the altar of their triumphant party.
Postmaster general Hitchcock, alone of the Taft cabinet, gave $500. The rest
all actea the tight waa roles. Charles D. Norton secretary to the presiaent, gave
$100, but his personal friena, R. C. Kerens", ambassaaor to Austria-Hungary,
gave $500. '
Senator Root stanas alone among Unitea States senators with a contribution of
$500. In Democratic expenditures the largest sum was spent in the aistrict of
Champ Clark, whose majority thereby leapea from 1300 to 4000.
Eight hunarea aollars were spent tj the Democrats in Kansas, ana not a Dem
ecrat came to congress in response.

TAC0MA, Washington, Is taking a rap at thedrink evil by passing an anti
treat ordinance, making it a penalty for one man to buy a drink for another.
Canada triea for the same effect bj oraering the erection of stalls in
iront of the bar, compelling each man to go into a separate stall for his arink, the
arrangement being so that a man in one stall aia not know who was in the other,
hence there could be no treating.
The 'Canadian law so aiminishea the receipts of the saloon men that they got it
repealea in many places.
The Tacoma law if enforced would do the same thing to the receipts of the sa

THE old Bornholmer clock had just

were shining through the drawn
curtains, the lamp was about to go out
and the fire was dying in the grate,
but Dr. Biering did not seem to notfce.
He was 'sitting in a big armchair lost
in thought. Only a few hours before
he had proposed to Hennette isoraen

and gave her all she could wish for,
and she was proud of her boy, but
whose fault was it that "he never found
time to visit her, though he knew how
happy it would malce her to see him.
He thought of Henriette who was to

had always moved in the highest so

ashamed of his old mother and her
plain old fashioned ways?
The lamp had gone out long ago; tho
fire was out; the moon had set it was
after two now. The doctor arose to go
to bed. But sleep would not come, and
when at last he fell asleep, he dreamed
ot his mother.
In the little house in the northern
part of Jutland, where Mrs. Biering

old woman had decided to surprise her
boy with a visit. It was a long trip
on trains and ferries to reach Copen
hagen and the only train left very
early. It would be almost dark before
she got there, but how happy Holger
would be! He had never " suggested
that she should via-lt him, but that
must of courss be because he was
afraid the long -trip would be too much
for her, but now she -would show him
she was not as feeble as he thought.
She almost regretted she had not let
the dressmaker fix up the black silk
dress she was wearing, but perhaps
Holger would rather see her in the
dress as she used to wear it. She had
often thought how lonesome! he must
feel. She hoped he would be out when
she came. Then she would take off her
cloak, put on her white lace bonnet,
and when Holger came home he would
find her knitting at his fireplace as if
she had been there always. She could
almost see the joy Id his big brown
eyes when he discovered her.
She thought of all this during the
trip and everyone noticed how happy
the old woman looked, and many found
her wrinkled face beautiful.
The train was late, and. it was dark
when the old woman reached the city.
She felt a little confused at the crowd

a cab for her and gave the address to
"It must be a mistake" she thought
when the cab stopped In front of a

moment later the old woman with half
a dozen bundles stood on the broad
stone stairs and tmidly rang the bell.

take your card now."

How Constitutions Differ Widely;
England's Not Like That Of U. S. Freaeric
British Document May Be Easily Changed; That of America
Almost Inflexible. ZZZZZH.
riTlHE elections now drawing to a
u ciose in ureat .Britain were pre
cipitated by a constitutional con
troversy. In all probability the reader
by, this time has been informed by the
cable dispatches of the final result,
something not known as this is written.
But whether it Is a Liberal victory or
a Conservative triumph, the constitu-
1 tion of Great Britain has been changed.
The mandate of the electors will be
obeyed by the new house of commons
which will meet in January.
The fact that there would be a gen
eral election to decide the fate of the
historic and ancient upper' chamber of
the British parliament was not known
until November 14. "Within flvev weeks
after that date the last member of the
new parliament will have been elected.
"Within six weeks from the time of the
last election the new parliament will
be in session ready to carry out the ex
pressed will of the electors.
Different in America.
' A hundred years ago, fifty years ago,
ten years ago, five years ago, one year
ago anybody in America might have
known that there would be a congres
sional election in the United States in
the autumn of 1910. Any time in the
past' 40 years everybody knew that
election would take place on the first
Tuesday after the first Monday In No
vember. True to the course of the calendar,
the constitutional machinery and the
statutory enactments of the United
Sates government brought about that
election in due ime. No constitutional
issue was involved, the election was not
called to decide any particular question,
it was held because the time had come
to hold an election. It is true that there
were several more or less sharply de
fined national issues, and the repult
was that the people generally recalled
from the Republican party Its mandate
of power, and entrusted the Democratic
party with a majority In the house of
representatives. A session of congress
began in "Washington last week. But
the representatives elected last No
vember are not there. Those members
now sitting in Washington were elpct
ed on the first Tuesday after the first
Monday In November, 1908. Next De

representatives in .congress elected by

The agitation for complete reform of
the house of lords began In England
four years ago, and became acute 13
months ago. Already the people have
had tne opportunity to decide the Ques
tion fbr themselves. , Serious agitation
for the reform of the United States
senate on the proposition of electing
senators directly by the people, was
begun a little more than 20 years ago.
The constitution provides that when
"three-fourths of the states shall peti
tion congress, congress shall call a
convention to submit proposed amend
ments to the states for ratification.
During these 20 years three-fourths of
the states by their legislatures have en
dorsed the proposition of the 'direct
election of United States senators, but
as these resolutions were not uniform
In wording, there is no prospect that j
anything will come of it. Americans j
may think tnat some of the methods
employed to reform the house of lords
are absurd, but they would do well to
remember that the task is Infinitely
more simple and direct than a similar
undertaking to reform the senate would
be in the United States
As a matter of fact, the British con
stitution permits the voters to have a
very much greater direct influence in
public affairs than does the American
constitution. The suffrage Is limited in
England 'to a greater extent than it is
in America, there are special privileges
legally enjoyed by wealthy and noble
persons which would be repugnant to
American institutions, and there Is a
caste system wholly foreign to the es
sential democracy of the great republic
But notwithstanding these limitations,
the British elector has the right not
only to cast his vote on one side or the
other of a great political controversy,
but he also has the right to demand
that his will be carried into execution
Up until this time this right has been
qualified and limited by the fact that
one party has had an overwhelming
majority in the upper chamber of the
