ample opportunity to show the color
of their journalism.
The country has confidence in

rugged Dutch Christian character
and integrity, modified and moulded
by his thoroughgoing Auicficanisin.

These hand shaking levees by the
President ought to stop. There
never was any sense in it and it is a
useles custom frought with danger
to the public inttiebis, and of no
earthly good to any one or any in
terests. If the court house turns its back
on the south and west, the days of
Democracy in Dates county are
numbered, and if it costs much to
remedy the mistake the day of the
old makeshitt arc "mighty un
certain." President Roosevelt will not
please all the people all the time,
nor some of the people any of the
time, but . he will please many of
the people nil the time; and that
many will be the class of citizen
that love our form of government
and their countiy, and believe in its
hallowed mid ultimate destiny.
And dues the count v have to bor

A great many people thought thtie
was to be a tax levy running over a

this is another one of the surpntes
t'J which the people are to be treat

According to an article lately
published in a leading magazine,
theie is not an honest man in the

And now it it President Roose
velt. The first city born man who
ever occupied the White llnne.
The most highly educated gentle
man whoever at in the presidential
chair. The youngest President tl.s
nation ever had. And yet a man
who has served in the legislntme,
n'socintcd with the cow boys of the
west, fought with the boys in the
trenches, been an officer in the n
vnl department, governor of his
sta'c, a maker of speeches, a preach
er of sermons, a writer of books, a
regulator of police forces, and pies
ident of the United States senate,
and no mistakes charged up against
him. In all these positions he ha;
been a moral force that was always
right and on the side of right every
time. He believed thoroughly that
McKinley's policy was right and
hence it is his own.
vv nen any question arises, ine
country will know where to find
President Roosevelt. Hence there
will be no disturbance anywhere of
present conditions, for the country
knows the man.
IT IS A PiTY.
It is a pity we have newspapers
and politicians too, that persist in
charging public officials, who hap
pen not to belong to their party,
with beiDg tyrants, rascals and
It is a pity too that almost all
such newspapers and politicians be-
long to some other party than the
Republican party, and that such
charges and accusations are made
without any basis in fact or record.
No reputable Republican news
paper or politician ever charged Mr.
Cleveland with being a tyrant, a
rascal or a thief, but always sus
tained him in maintaining the dig
nity of the country and in the en
forcement cf the law, and to this
day about the only defenders Cleve
land's administrations have with
the people are among Republican
newspapers. While these journals
oppose the policy of those adminis
trations and possibly denounced it
as rank political heresy, yet all with
one accord give Mr. Cleveland
credit lor honesty and integrity of
purpose and with having a desire to
execute the functions ot bis 'office
for the best interest of the country
as he understood them.
In 1SS2 at Geneva, Switzerland,
a conference ot anarchists was held
and a declaration of their beliefs
promulgated, as follows:
"Our ruler is our enemy. We
anarchists are men without any rul
ers, fighting against those who have
usurped any power or who w ish to
"Our enemy is the owner of the
land who keeps it lor himself and
makes the peasant work for his ad
vantage. "Our enemy is the manufacturer
who fills his factory with wage
slaves; our enemy is the state,
whether monarchial, oligarchical, or
democratic, with its otlicisls and
staff officers, magistrates, and po
"Our enemy is every thought ol
authority, whether men call it God
or devil, in whose name the priests
have so long ruled honest people.
"Our enemy is the law which al
ways oppresses the weak by the
strong lo the justification and apoth
eosis of crime.
"Put if the landowners, the man
ufacturers, the heads of the state,
the priests and the law are our ene
mies, we are also theirs, and we
boldly oppose them. We intend to
reconquer the land acd the factory
from the landowner and the manu
facturer; we mean to annihilate the
state under whatever name it may
be concealed; and we mean to get
our freedom back again in spite of
priest or law.
"According to our strength we
will wot k for the humiliation of all
lial institutions, and are in accord
with everyone who defies the law
by a revolutionary act. We despise
all legal means because they are the
legation ot our rights; we lo not
want so-called univeisal suffrage

This is the nna. -by which stands
for the "propaganda of action," by
which is meant murder of all lulers
and officers of the law. It has no
kinship w ith socialism and so little
affinity with socialistic atmosphere
that Germain, the hotbed of social
ism, is prohibitive of anarchy.

News Notes From the Capital
A hush has fallen over the city
of Washington. The two days of
mourning for the dead president,
coming in mid-week, has checked
and quieted all business hurry.
On Monday night, as the casket
was borne up the avenue, a curi
ous thing happened. Had the
crowd been mere curiosity seekers
they might have watched it pass
and then turned away to go to
their homes. Instead, thev fell
quietly into line behind the funeral
train and followed it, a mighty
procession that tilled the broad
avenue, until it reached the doors 1
of the White Houe.
There was nothing sensational
about the event; but it was essen
tially dramatic. It was made the
more impressive by the absence of
all music. No band accompanied
the funeral cortege, and the multi
tude kopt silence, except whra
someone softly sang the president's
hymn, "Nearer, my God, to
Tliee," and those nearest joined
in the song. All along the road,
from Huffalo to the capital, this
happened at intervals. At Harris
burn, Mrs, McKinlcy caught the
sound of the singing, although but
faintly, fur the windows of her car

In some ways this informal ccie-
mony was more touching than the
next day's public funeral services.
There were sensation-hunters
among the crowds at the funeral,
and the photograph-fiend and the
fakir were slightly in evidence,
though the police suppressed the
latter when they were noisy in pro
claiming their wares- One photo
grapher eged bis way into a po
sition near the hearse tod tried to
get a snap shot of President Roose
velt just as the casket was lifted
in. The flash of light startled the
hearse horses and made them rear,
and a slight disturbance was ere
An especially untoward incident
was the crush which occurred on
the steps of the Capital, and for
which the guards and the police
department were certainly to blame
At one o'clock there were thous
ands of people in front cf tht Cap
itol, waiting for a chance to eater
the rotunda. The procession
stretched across the grounds and
several blocks to the west. When
the doors were opened there was a
rush. Some say it was caused by
a false announcement that the way
was clear. At any rate there was
a surging, struggling crowd on the
steps inside of a minute, and near
ly a hundred persons were injured.
The room under the rotunda was
1 turned into a hospital. A circum
stance which did not tend to re
lieve the situation was that when
the panic began several ruourted
policemen most idiotically spurred
their horses into the crowd and
got caught in it.
The impressive element in the

uujjjrcds could recall some inci
dent of his life here which showed
his lovable and kindly qualities.
Some one recalled that on Chil
dren's Day at the Metropolitan
Methodist church, where he at
tended, he had beckoned some
children who were without seats to
come into his pew. He was a
lover of children, and one little fel
low who was held up in his fathers
arms to look into the casket, sob
bed out, "Good-bye, dear Presi
dent." The words expressed the
feeling f every child in Washing
ton hJ ever had anything to do
There seems to be even more
disposition to express sympathy
on the part of foreign nations than
there was at tiie time of Garfield's
death, which by the way, was just
twenty years ago JSept. ao. The
London Timrs made the suggest
ion that the Duke ol Cornwall and
York khould be asked to attend the
funeral, and one of bis aides will
go to Canton, as it is impossible
for the Duke to come in person.
Pres. Roosevelt has done noth
ing thus lar but express, with his
usual dtijibion, his determination
to carry out the policy of his pre
decessor, and retain the members
ol th cabinet in their places. It is
hirdly likely that he has been
thinking much about anything else
for unless faces tell lies he has
bt-en greatly moved by the tragic
event of the past few days, Dut

In this connection there are
some interesting rumors about Sen.
Lodge. It was positively stated
at one time that Roosevelt bad
promised him the state portfolio
should he gain the presidency, and
that was an agreement of long
standing. Uut it is bow said that
Sen. Lodge would rather be chair
man of the coramittsa on foreign
relations than to be secretary of
state, and this, to one who under
stands that most of the work of the
senate is done in committee-rooms,
will appear quite natural. Uut
there it something in the way, or
rather somebodr. and that some
body ia See. Cullom. Sen. Frye,
of Maine, would naturally succeed
Davis' but be is now chairman of
the committee on commerce, and
is said to like it very well. Sen.
Cullom is next in succession, and
it is reported that he will, if noth
ing goes wrong, be chairman of
the committee on foreign aflaira
soon after congress meets. It re
mains to be seen whether the
Lodge party, backed by the pres.
ident, will be able lo overcome
the quiet but eiceedingly perti
nacious iofljence of the Illinois
man. It ia try interesting sit
uation at a whole.
