The Republican City Commit
tee of Paducah, Ivy., has offered
to permit the Woman's Club and
High School Alumni Association
to name the ten candidates for
School Trustees to be elected j
next fall, without regard to the
party affiliations of the candi
dates. The anarchists consider the
Haywood case a victory, which is
shown by a telegram sent to the
president, which read: "Unde
sirable citizens victorious. Ke
joice," signed by Emma Goldman
and two other "reds." Evident
ly the difference between labor
unions, socialism and anarchists
must not be very much.
Gov. Folk is holding himself
up to ridicule for his hastiness
in removing Police Commissioner
F. F. Kozzelle, of Kansas City.
It is said Chief Hayes wiil be the
next in line for removal, which
indicates the governor surely has
political motives for his action.
This move ha3 surprised some of
Folk's best supporters and tends
to make him unpopular.
John D. Rockefeller has use
for every cent it is in his power
to grasp, as was shown by his
refusing to contribute his wit

not seem so strange if he did not

the opportunity will come some
time in the future for him to
burn all he ever possessed. He
is headed in the right direction,
The record for the year ending
June 40 showed 1,255, 310 immi
grants landed in this country in
comparison with 1,100,7:15 for
the previous year. And yet
some people wonder at our well
filled asylums and prisons, and
the low wages of some kinds of
labor. America, that should be
for Americans, seems to bo a
dumping ground for foreign out
casts and refugees. In settling
national questions, let us look to
this one lirwt.
The story is going the rounds
about a young lady who went in

portion of mankind for putting
around the lower extremities of
their locomotive members to

clerk is now on a sheep ranche.
Wra. Haywood's Acquittal.
The recent trial of Win. D.
Haywood, Secretary -Treasurer
of the Western Federation of
Minors, who was chnrged .with
conspiracy in connection with
the murder of ex-Governor
Frank Steunenburg, of Idaho,
contains much to bo condemned.
The verdict, although given for
acquittal by the 12 jurymen, does
not satisfy the American people
by any means. From the very
face of the evidence, it appears
as if something must have preju
diced the jurors or the verdict
would have been far different.
The court's instructions were
decidedly in favor of the defend
ant and perhaps on the strength
of it alone rested the fate of Wm.
Haywood. When we take in con
sideration the fact that the trial
was conducted in a mining com
munity amid sympathizers for
the defense, and the confession
of Orchard, which, taken as a
whole, must contain some truth
for falsehood could not weave so
complicated a tale without detec
tion and the perilous position in
which the Western Federation of
Miners would be placed, then it
appears that fear might have
played an active part in the jur
So it goes in so many of our
criminal cases, even though the

law or in such cases as this,
should not cause people to won

It has been said that as we
think, so we are, and ik seems to
be substantiated when we look at
humanity in its various phases.
We see in some, the degeneration
of man and in others, the high
est type of manhood. The crim
inal has characteristics which
are unconcealable. His shifty
eye, low forehead and stealthy
gait indicate his past. Then the
other man, in business, the home

show nobleness of character,

The Secretary of the Treasury
has been working for some time
on a plan to reduce tho trouble
always attending the customs in
spection in New York and other
American ports. This will be
good news to all American toir
i.sts and all others who have to
bravo the terrors of tho New
York customs. Tho Treasury
hereafter will take the declara
tions of trans-Atlantic passen
gers during the voyage instead
of herding them like theep in the
saloon after tho steamer reaches
her dock. Then there will be an
entire rearrangement of the in
spection service on the dock in
New York and the result will be
that the whole inquisition will be
flnifhod in half the time and with
a quarter of tho profanity that
has always marked the incoming
of the trans-Atlantic liners.

Weekly Letter Telling of the Do
ings in the White City.
Tho strike of tho miners in the
miners In tho Iako Superior re
gion is more likely to attract the
attention from tho federal gov
ernment than any other labor
disturbance since tho coal strike.
It is important in whole of tho
iron and steellndustry and thru
that the prosperity of tho whole
country. But more than that, it
is important as it shows a move
of the Western Federation of
Miners toward tho Eart. The
men who have organized the
strike in the Mesaba country are
very undesirable citizens from
the start by driving from work
men who were perfectly satisfied
and who did not want to strike.
The most of the miners in this
region are Slavs and Hungarians
with a good many Italian and
some Spaniards. They are more
easily terrorized than native-born
Americans and thousands of
them have already quit the ore
fields and have either gone to
New York or Chicago or in many
cases back to their own country.
The strike organizers are em
ploying the usual tactacs of the
Western Federation in "slugg
ing" and other forms of violence
and it will not be at all surprising
if troops have to be called out.
An appeal has already been sent
to Washington for the Depart
ment of Commerce and Labor to
to use its good offices in settling
the strike, but with a situation
like that in Minnesota, created
especially for the purpose of
setting labor and capital at each
others throats, there is not much
prospect of settlement without
first some blood letting, either
actual or metaphorical.
There is considerable interest
in the State Department at the
success of the Japanese govern
ment from tho United States to
Korea. There has never been a
situation" approaching a casu
belli between the Japanese and
American government. They
understand each other perfectly,
but the Japanese government
was not strong enough to brave
popular anger, and the efforts of
the Jingo party in Japan was a
continuous irritant to an already
sore spot. Therefore it was that
the row in Korea happened at
such an opportune moment. And
if some American officials are to
be believed, it was stirred up
more by tho Japanese govern
ment than by the Koreans. It is
even said that the alleged Korean
delegation sent to protest at the
Hague was really composed of
Japanese and was intended mere
ly to give tho color of an excuse
for Japan to take over Korea. Of
course the Japanese wanted the
country. They always have
wanted it and they intended ul
timately to have it. ilut the pre
sent moment was very opportune
for making tho grab, and it has
worked so beautifully that dis
patches from Tokiosay one hears
nothing now of the "American
situation" and tho attention of
the whole country is centred on
Korea. Of course it is a little
hard on tho Koreans, but still tho
State Department officials are
watching the situation with com
sure. One of tho few changes of re
cent years in tho State Depart
ment has been tho organization
last week of an Oriental Bureau.
This will have to do with all far
eastern problems, Chinese and
Japanese treaties, trade relations
and immigration questions. It
will be under two heads who
have served in the Far East and
who read and apeak Japanese
and Chinese perfectly. It will
bo the first time tho government
has ever had such a bureau, and
it is believed it will lighten tho
work of the Department mater
ially. We will give you the Tiudune

The Poor Boy and College.
There Is scarcely an rduca
tional institution in tho United
States, bo it a small college or a
great university, where tho pooi
boy of the fighting type cannot
mako good. Everywhere this
boy can find opportunities for
self support, and can find time
to excel in tho class room and in
the activities of the school world.
He is tho kind of man who de
serves encouragement and moat
Missouri Colleges are putting
opportunities in his way. Per
haps more is done in this way at
tho State University than at any
institution evually large. The
last General assembly appropri
ated $7,000, to be expended for
student labor in the next two
years. This money will be usd
in various ways. In the various
offices are employed for a few
hours each day a little army of
stenographers and clerks. In
the library alone last year about
f?00 were expended for student
labor. About 8 student are em
ployed there during their spare
time to act as assistants, and to
keep track of books. In the car
penter shop, the machine shop,
the boiler room, as well as in the
class room aa assistants, are em
ployed students. Tho Publish
er's Office employs four or five
continually, and in rush seasons
a dozen or fifteen. Perhaps the
largest of all is the opportunity
for student labor in tho Agricul
tural and Horticultural Depart
ments. The great State Farm
requires much attention, and the
grounds and building there, as
well as on the Horticultural
grounds, must be kept in order.
Probably there is not an Agri
cultural student who has not
worked for money on the
State Farm, while many of thoso
Departments spend their spare
time in work there. Quite a
force is at present employed in
the harvest field. By these
means and in various other ways
about half tho students of the
State University earn the whole
or a part of their expenses.
