Striking Paragraphs in Judge Par
'The issue of imperialism which
has been thrust upon the country
involves decision whether the law
of the land or the rule of indivi
dual r caprice shall govern. The
principle of imperialism may give
rise to brilliant, startling, dashing
results, but the principle of democ
acy holds in check the brilliant ex
ecutive and subjects him to the so
ber, conservative control of the peo
pie. The people of the United
States stand at the parting of the
"The people demand a reform of
existing (tariff) conditions. Since
the last Democratic administration
the cost of living has grievously
ncreased. Those having fixed in
comes have suffered keenly: those
ivinsr on wages, if there has been
any increase, know that such in
crease has not kept pace with the
advances in the cost of living, in
cluding rent and the necessaries of
Thi section (the reciprocity
clauses) of the Dingley act stands
forth as a monument of legislative
cozenage and political bad faith,
unless the people take the matter in
their own hands at the ballot-box
and demand a reduction of duties in
return for reciprocal concessions."
I am in hearty accord with that
plank in our platform that favors
doing for the Filipinos what we
have already done for the Cubans
And this should be done,
not only in justice to the Filipinos,
but to Dreserve our own rights for
a free people cannot withhold free
dom from another people and them
selves remain free."
'In the face of the continuous
decline in the record of American
shipping during the last forty years
the promise of the Republican
party to restore it is without" en
couragement. The remedy
surely doe3 not lie iu the granting
of subsidies wrung from the pock
ets oi the taxpayers."
"The national Democracy favors
liberal pensions to the surviving sol
diers and sailors and their depend
ents on the ground that they deserve
liberal treatment. But it de
nies the right of the executive to
usurp the power of congress to leg
islate on that subject."
"It is essential, more than ever,
to adhere strictly to the traditiona
policy of the country as formulated
by the first president and never, in
my judgment, wisely departed from
to invite friendly relations with
all nations while avoiding entang
ling alliances with any. Such a pol
icy means the cultivation of peace
instead of the glorification of war,
and 'the minding of our own busi
ness, in lieu of spectacular inter
meddling with the affairs of other
"Reform in expenditures must
be had in both the civil, military
and naval establishments in order
that the national expenditures may
be brought to a basis of peae and
the government maintained without
recourse to the taxes of war."
"If "called to the office of presi
dent, I shall consider myself the
chief magistrate of all the people
and not of any faction, and 6hall
ever be mindful of the fact that on
many questions of national policy
there are honest differences of opin
ion. I believe in the patriotism,
good sense and absolute sincerity of
all the people. I shall strive to re
member that he may serve nis party
best who serves his country best."

but it required many hours to clear
away the debris. Engineers Parrott

Sun Bros.' World's Progressive
Railroad Show is one that has a
standing record for presenting a
good performance in one big ring,
in the good old style. Sun Bros,
run their show strictly on business
and moral principles; nothing is
permitted to appear that will mar
the pleasure of the skeptically in
clined. Neither are the usual army
of fakirs (often seen following in
the wake of shows) allowed to fol
low this organization. The long
standing reputation of the Sun j
Brothers throughout America and
the Domiuion of Canada shall not
be jeopardized by allowing any
catch-penny affair to be connected
with their show. Fifty great cel
ebrated artists will appear at every
performance. Fully two hours and
one-half of enjoyment is afforded.
Let all attend. Afternoon at 2

of Congressman W. Godfrey Hunt

coma caused by a cancerous growth,
due to the wearing of high-heeled

say a word of praise for Ballard'

nail, which caused the cords in my
legs to contract and an abscess to
rise in my knee, and the doctor
tald me that I would have a stiff
leg, so one day I went to J. F.

Denver, Col.) He recommended a
bottle of Snow Liniment; I got a
