This is said to be all fools day, but
that is no reason why all should be foole.
If this thing keeps up the winner of
the Jeffries Johnson prize tight will make
the Bryan and Hoosevelt demonstrations
look silly in comparison. "Greatness"
and "popularity " are unknown quanti
ties in the public mind. A hero one day
may be a martyr the next.
The story of the liallinger-Pinchot
controversy cao be told iv few words. It
began with the refusal of Hallinger,
within a few weeks after he became secre
tary of the interior, on March G last, to
withdraw from entry certain small por
tious of the public lands for so called
ranger siti-s, at the request of Gilford
Pini'hot, chief of the forest service of
the department of agriculture. 1^ has
grown until it has finally halted congress
in its business of making laws. It is
part of a deep laid scheme to discredit
the Tuft administration.
By the death of Associate Justice David
J. Brewer of the Uuited States supreme
court the eouutry loses one of its most
profound lawyers and jurists. He was
Btricken with apoplexy Monday night
and died before he could be carried to his
room. Mr. Brewer was appointed to the
supreme bench by President Harrison
and was 73 years of age. He was a
member of the celebrated Fie'd family,
his mother being a Field, and David
Dudley Field (nestor of the American
bar), Stephen J. Field (for nearly 40
years a member of the supreme bench
of the United State*). Cyrus W. Field
(father of the Atlantic cable), and Henry
M. Field (a noted divine and author) be
ing uncles on his mother's side. Mr.
Brewer was much in demand as a public
speaker, and was the author of "The
Pew to the Pulpit," "The Twentieth Cen
tury From Another Viewpoint," "Ameri
can Citizenship" and "The United States:
Christ an Nation."
If Huy one pines for good old demo
cratic dnys he should remember the days
of 1893 1 "> and G, when in a single year,
tlmt of 1*<»:? the losses from failed busi
ness firms amounted to the enormous
sum of 1346,000,000. Those were the
days wh»n men, women and children
went to bed hungry ; when strong men
tramped the streets and highways in
search of employment, but found it not.
Those were the dayp of the Coxey army,
"cheap" goods and lines of soup houses.
Compure times then and now and note
the diff reiice. Work it» to be had for all
who \vit:h to work, at wages in advance
of anything ever before known in the
history of the country. The cost of liv
ing ban advanced, of course, as was to
be expected. "Cheap" prices and "cheap"
money go hand in hand with hard times
and when labor is a drug on the market.
If those democrats and so called " insur
gent" republicans who are trying to
overturn everything just now could take
their own medicine without the rest of
poor humanity being made to suffer in
const quence we would say by all means
give them plenty of it; but it so happens
that if hard times overtake us all must
suffer, the innocent with the guilty. The
wise will think this matter over.
A San Francisco dispatch of March 2-1
announces the death of Galen Clark, at
the advanced age of 96 yeara. Clark's
name will forever be associated with the
Mariposa grove of big trees and the
Yosemite valley in California. Be was
the first white man to make known the
existence of the Mariposa grove and one
of the first to enter Yosemite valley.
This was in 1852 or 1853. He estab
lished a home at the big trees, and for
for years, before a wagon road was built
into the wonderful valley of wonderland,
Galen Clark's place was where the tourist
mounted the hurricane deck of a mule
and ode into the valley. Af'er the big
tiees nnd the valley became public prop
erty and were declared to be a park
Clark was for 20 years guardian of the
Yosemite. It was said that he was the
first to enter the valley in the spring and
the last to leave it in the fall. He thus
cime in contact with many noted men,
including P . feseor Le Conte, John Muir
and John Burroughs, three of the great
est naturalists this country has pro
duced, who breathed inspiration by
fre net! visits to this part of California.
The .California Argonaut was buried in
the gnat Rbyss in the mountains that
he loved «*o well and where he spent the
besl years of his life in a tomb which he
hewec out himself in agiant granite rock

They Stultify Th«mselves.
The tommy rot "that fi"B lthe demo
cratic and "insurgent" press about I'ncle
Joe Canßon and tbe ratea of the house
i- ■oflMthiag ru knretoM to contemplate.
One would tbiuk that Mr. Cannon stood
Bp like ■ mighty eoloasui and ru'el ac a
tjrant or a bully would seek to do
thiugrt. As a matter of fact the hoUBe
makes its own rues. It is done by the
■auction, if not the expressed wish, of a
majority of rhe bouse membership. The
rules are formulated by a committee, as
per necessity the rules, as well ac all busi
ness of the house, must beformulated by
committees. The speaker, whoever he
be, is electpd to enforce the rules.
This I'ncle Joe has done—this and noth
ing more. He has performed a task that
any man derated to the epeakership
would have to perform. A person may
have a conviction about the wisdom of
the rules, but to use all the harsh words
that have been used against Speaker
Cannon for euforciag the rules he was
elected to enforce is mean and despicable,
and is born of a desire for political ad
lode Joe Cannon has been made, and
is being made, the football of the repub
lican party by the opposition to throw
dust in the eyes of tha people, by trying
to make it appear that "Cannonism"
(so-called) is a "monster of such hideous
mien that, to be hated, needs but to be
seen." The new rules to be formulated
by the house will h »ye to be enforced by
the speaker just as the rules have been in
the past, whether it is Uacle Joe or
Champ Clark in the chair. We predict
that the rules will not be materially
changed. They will not be materially
changed even if the democrats, by the
aid of their allies, the "insurgents,"' suc
ceed in controlling the next house. They
stultitied themselves in this regard when
they elected Crisp speaker to succeed
Reed, whom they dubbed 'Czar" and
then adopted his rules, and will do it
If the measures President Taft has
formulated and laid before congress to
be enacted into law are not passed it will
not be the fault of the president. He
has urged congress again and again to
pass them. He is not the law-making
power. Congress, however, has wasted
most of the session in playing politics.
It iB "Cannonism" and "Aldrichism,"
and the "Pinchot-Ballinger" contro
versy, to the end that legislation which
the people's representatives are expected
to enact into law and for which they
draw large salaries and enjoy many per
quisites for doing is apparently thrown
overboard Who is responsible for this?
The so-called "insurgent republicans"
are mainly responsible fur it. Without
tbeir aid the democrats would be power
less to blocK legislation and the meas
ures President Taft laid before congress
would have passed long ago. The dem
ocratic congressman from the third
Washington district has been one of the
main stays in this movement. His ad
mirers cannot point to a single piece of
legislation that he ha« formulated since
he took his seat. He has j >ined in every
movement to block legislation.
Will Have to Change Tactics.
CongreHHmnn Poindexter of this state
was one of the very few alleged republi
cans who went the limit in Saturdny's
fracaw and voted to oust the republican
speaker of the house. He lined up with
the democrats with this end in view.
He is running for the Uaited States sen
ate an a republican ! But he will have
to change collars quickly and in a man
ner so pbbiiely that nil may know of the
fact if lie expects any consideration from
the party in this state.—Tacoma News.
