ROOSEVELT AND THE SENATE.
Last week the United States
Senate Committee on commerce
decided to report adversely on the
confirmation of Dr. Crura who has
been appointed by the President
as colector for the port of Charles
to S. C, over the protest of the
prejudiced whites of the south and
iwo republicans are responsible for
the committee's action as the com
mittee is republican by two major
ity but two republican senators.
Voting with the democrats does
mean, however, that Dr. Crum
will not be confirmed or that Pres
ident Roosevelt's party is not with
him in his present dealing with the
race problem. The Globe-Democrat
has the following to say on
the subject :
"Of course, the President's posi
tion is that he believes Dr. Crum
is fit for the office to which he is
nominated, and as there is no legal
or moral barrier against his attain
ment of the post, the nomintation
must stand until the senate, by a
full and fair vote rejects it. The
President acknowledges his re
sponsibility for the nomination.
He will force the senate the re
publican members of it as well as
the democrats to shoulder the re
sponsibility of defeating the nomi
nation, if it is to be defeated.
This is the way the matter stands.
Moreover, as the President seems
to have made plain to some of the
republican dodgers, the postpone
ment of a decisive vote by the sen
ate will uot settle the question. If
the term ends without action by
the senate, the appointment will
be made daring the recess, and Dr
Crum will serve in the office until
next December, at least, unless
congress should be called in extra
session and the senate should re
ject the nomination. The thing
for the senators to do, therefore, is
to bring the matter to a vote just
as soon as possible, so as to settle
it. Shuffling, evasion and dodg
ing will not bring the incident to
CAPITAL REMOVAL FIASCO.
The capi'al removal agony which
last wee distressingly disturbed
the repose and business of the
peorie of Jefferson City is over and
wt hope will forever remain a
tnemory only. Excrutiating as it
was, the fiasco though for the time
being painful to endure or contemp
late has its compensations in the
moral and civic reforms which it
seems to have accomplished and the
comfortable reassurance to the peo
ple of Jefferson City that that place
most probably will forever remain
the capital of the State. To make
this, however, doubly sure the
people of the city will see to it that
the Sunday closing of saloons, every
day and night closing of gambilng
dens, and respect for the Christian
sabbath are permanently established
and law and order enforcedly the
It now seems assured that the
capital removal resolutions intro
duced by Representative Charles J.
Golden, of Nodaway, originated in
fun. But Mr. Colden soon found
he was playing with fire, and
afforded another illustration of the
moral of the fable of the boys and
frogs in which while throwing
stones was sport for the boys it was
death to the frogs.
On Monday last Mr. Colden's
resolutions were expunged from
the record by a vote of 55 to 16, and
the beautiful buildings now rest
more securely and peacefully than
ever upon the solid-rock eminence
which they have graced for more
than half a century. So mote it be !

A compulsory education law
would no doubt be an excellent
thing for Missouri, especially
among the negro schools. It
seems ridiculous that after pro
Tiding for free schools the state of
Missouri should find it necessary
to compel its inhabitants to take
advantage of these opportunities,
yet, it is nevertheless a fact.

Free Passesto Public Men.
To pass or not to pass is now a
legislature-troubling problem in
several states. In Utah the senate
has passed a bill by 13 to 5 prohibit
ing the payment of mileage to state
officials and legislators who ride on
free passes. There were those
who favored making pass-using
unlawful, but the consensus of
opinion appeared to be that it was
better business to let the railway
furnish the transportation and make
the officials relinquish the double
perquisite of mileage. Judges and
other public officers defended both
the pass and the mileage fee, on
the ground that 10 cents a mile was
only about right for traveling ex
penses, aside from transportation;
and propositions, such as to in
crease salaries and prohibit passes
or to make a limited allowance for
traveling expenses found little
ravor. 1 ne senate hesitated over
the problem what to do, supposing
the official passholder had to make
part of his traveling by other con
veyance than the railway, but
settled it by an amendment allow
ing mileage for portions of dis
tances traveled, provided
officials paid fare for those
tions. G lobe-Democrat.
THE SCHOOL TEACHER
"It doesn't require much
knowledge to teach a country
school," says the Hutchinson
News. "All the requirements
necessary tor a country school
teacher is to be a primary, inetr
mediate and high school teacher
combined. She must be able to
rustle her own kindling wood,
build her own fires, adjust the
fallen stove pipes, put in window
panes that the boys break, mend the
broken desk, love the dull, unruly
pupils as well as she does the
bright, obedient scholar, or at
least give no evidences of
different condition of affairs. She
must be able to drive a horse
spank the unruly kids, keep the
big boys from making love to her,
keep out of neighborhood rows,
and keep on the good side of all the
people in the district, bhe must
understand the school laws, and be
able to interpret them to the school
board. She must raise money for
the school library, keep all kinds of
records, plant trees on arbor day, be
of an irreproachable moral charac
ter, and pass an examination in all
the branches of modern education
in which half the college gradu
ates ten years examination would
flunk and in which an applicant for
a $2,500 a year government
position would fall, r or all thes

The word Style has various
significations. As used however
in this paper it refers primarily
and chieny to mode 01 expressing
thought in language whether oral
r written, especially to adopt the
ehnition of the lexicons such
use of language in the expression
tof thought as exhibits the spirit
hnJ faculty of an artist in ex
pression; chosen arrangement of
Words in discourse. Ur, according
n'Chesterfield. "Stvle 19 the dress
f"thougths," or according to Swift
pioper words in proper places
make the true definition of Style."
It is derived from the Latin
word "stilus," a style or writing
instrument; manner of writing or
mode of expression.
The general outline or contour of
the human face in all nations and
ages has been the same. Yet
there are lines and lineaments and
facial expressions in the countless
millions of human beings that
enable the beholder to distinguish
one person from another. Although
alike they present the marvelous
paradox of not being alike or
precisely the same.
In like manner and for like
reasons, the Style of speakers and
writers, although in many respects
similar or even alike are dis
tinguishable from each other by
artists in expression. I hey are
susceptible of subdivisions,
analyses and classifications.
Having neither space nor pur
pose to trace even in outline all the
phases of the subject which invite
statement and discussion., we must
be content with a single classifica
tion of btyle, namely, r act and
Fancy, by which is meant that the
Style of many writers and speakers
of our own and former generations
may be classified as belonging to
one or the other of these sub
Fact is logical and argumcnta
tive, and is addressed to the judg
ment. Fancy is sentimental,
rhetorical, air-built castle, "such
stuff as dreams are made of" and
is addressed to the emotions or
sense ot the beautiful in art or
nature rather than to the powers
of reason or analysis. Fact draws
daggers from real scabbards. Fancy
from air. r act is history, rancy
is fiction. Fact is a veritable event.
Fancy is an idealism. The one
instructs, guides and determines the
judgment. The other entertains,;
delights and enchants. This is
its function and mission.
Primarily it is not a teacher, but a
musician, a word and picture
painter who is often clothed in red
plush, and deems it no offence
to leave the reader or hearer no
wiser, no better provided with
knowledge for the battles of life
and the problems of practical busi
ness or official duty. Fact is actual
history teaching by example.
Fancy teaches in hyperbole, often
in unnatural and impossible posi
tions and circumstances. Fact is
fact, to be relied upon in forming
correct judgments of men and
things, issues of daily life, and the
multiplied and intricate questions
which concern the duty and destiny
of churches, states and nations.
Fancy, or the fancy in style of
writing or speaking is highly,
suberbly, emotional and rhetorical,
luxuriant in flounces and furbelows
and in airy and beautiful nothings.
Devotees of this style dwell in
fragrant gardens of orchids and
not of carnation roses or li Hies of
the valley which are too common
and too well known to the masses
of men. Usually they are prolix,
verbose, wordy, and can easily fill
a column with a single idea. They
are skilled chemists who by the
processes of electro plating are able
to thinly spread a sar.all bit of gold
over space the size of a ten acre held
