WHAT - WE AKK WOKKIMQ
Every good person desires the
best possible social condition. Ev
ery good , citizen desires, by his
vote, to bring about suck a condi
ticn', and cists his vote in favor of
those men anj measures that will
brintr about such a result. One
hundred years ago slavery, or in
voluntary servitude, existed in ev
ery nation on the face of the globe.
When the Declaration of Indepen
dence was written slavery existed
in nearly every colony whose dele
gates signed that protest against
It was the Dutch who first sold
slaves in what is now the United
States. Jt was the English who
first liberated the slave and made
true the expression "when the
slave sets foot on English soil the
shackles fall from his limbs." Ev
er since the Anglo Saxon began
the work of liberating slaves and
preaching liberty "throughout the
land to all the inhabitants there
of" freedom has been making
rapid strides, so that now there is
not a slave in any civilized coun
try in the world.
Three hundred years ago not
one person in ten could read or
write his own name, nor could
they at any time before that since
the world began. Now the con
ditions are reversed and not one
One hundred years ago the bal
lot was in the hands of the tew, if
they had it at all, and with that
few was so hedged around and en
trammeled with laws and techni
calities that only a small portion
of the few had the temerity to ap
proach the voting place to vott for
tear that in their ignorance they
would get themselves into trouble.
Now every maa of lawlut age and
sound mind in this country, and a
majority of the English speaking
race elsewhere exercise the rights
of suffrage and thus have a direct
voice in making the laws and
shaping the policy of the govern
ment under which they live.
The poor man's vote has the
same power at the rich man's bal
lot. The influence of Anglo Saxon
freedom is extending to all other
races so that the conditions of to
day is infinitely better than a few
The penal coloay of Van Die-
man's land has disappeared, the
slave is a citizen of the United
States. Siberia has ceased to be
a Itnd of horrors sad the serf is no
longer sold with the land. The
debtor is no longer tent to prison,
the insane to the bedlam or the
incurably tick to the pest house.
Now the debtor is provided with a
bankrupt law, the insane an asy
lum and the sick a hospital, where
all the comforts ot freedom and a
good home are furnished without
money and without price. Uni
versities, colleges and schools,
asylums, hospitals and homes dot
the country over and the people's
money supports them without
stint or grudge.
What progress we have made
in one hundred years and what
may we not expect in the next
hundred years. You can't pull
the sua to its senith with speech
or pea nor dispell the darkness of
night by constantly harping about
the evils that exist. The light of
the sua begins with a dawn and
reaches its noonday brightness by
gradual steps and the darkness dis
appears with the approach of
dawn. So it seems to be the eter
nal fitness of things that we ad.
vance by slow steps toward the
realization of our highest dreams
The advancement in the better
mentofthe condition of mankind
in the past century has been won
derful and beyond the conception
of the maa who has made no note
of history and who looks only at
his own times and surroundings.
The nations are steadily marching
on towards better things and high
er ideals. The poor are becoming
more comfortable, the common
people are growing better and the
rich more charitable. The tenor
ant are becoming learned, the edu
cators are getting wiser and the
learned more liberal.
The state lives in the hearts of
its citizens. The nation rules by
the will ot its people and over all
the church sheds its benign influ
ence, preaching the fatherhood of
Gad and the brotherhood of man
When these elements shall have
accomplished their perfect work
then will come the perfect system
of government and the unerring
truths of eternal justice tempered
with eternal mercy.

News Notes From the'. tfup'iVtii
Quite naturally poblic aid party-
interest center'just'noU- in the do
ings and outgivings of the new
President. His unique personality
and the sudden accidency of his suc
cession to the office at trie-very out

make him a curious 'study to both
the people and the politician. De

announcement that he. would en

predictions of new departures ;ir.d
But most" of the expressed feais
and fancies are unwarranted. Pres
ident Roosevelt is an earnest, loyal
nd patriotic republican. While
believing that "he serves his party-
best who serves his cour.try best," 1 1 v ! v
he also believes that the great re-t;,eS
publican majorities of 1896 and ,'.

We see by the Globe-Democrat
that there was a lively tilt at the an
nual meeting of the laymen's asso
ciation of the Kock River confer
ence on October 10, between S. 1
Pye, of the Book Concern, and
Judge O. II. Morton, president of
the association, concerning mem
bership on appointed committees
Mr. Pye left the meeting in anger,
After this a resolution was intro
duced providing that a committee
of five be appointed kr the chair to
make inquiry and investigations for
the purpose of advising the mem
bers of the association at to what
legislation should be recommended
for adoption by the next general
conference which will tend to in

throughout the Union and instantly
