W'EDKE-DAT, jANL'ARr 20, 1897.
Queen Victoria has 1C0, 000.010
laid away for a rainj day.
The republicans best entitled to be
proud now are those who stood out
against the machine.
The first thing Billy Mason should
tell his colleagues down at Washing
ton is that bis election is no joke.
TBI United States senate will
nave a means 01 driving aV.il care
away when Billy Mason gets down
The most gratifying thing about
Illinois' new United States senator is
that John Riley Tanner has eo string
tied to him.
Ex-COXOKESSMAN WALTER I. HAVES

legislature to till the vacancy caused
Dy me neatn 01 uapt. . A. Merrell,
The success of Billy Mason ia as
much a compliment to the Chicago
Times-Herald as was the defeat suc
cessively of Madden and Lorimer
While the Times-Herald has persis
tency ana vigorously fought the ma-
ceine, it has just as steadfastly held
tne Mason banner alort. Editor Kohl
mat's victory is complete
There is one trust that must bs
maintained. That's the trust which
Rev. Potter Insists John D. Rocke
feller promised New York's Taber
nacle church. Mr. Rockefeller gave
the church a bunch of railroad bonds,
and they depreciated in value. Now
Mr. Potter says Mr. Rockefeller
should shell out" the difference and
be made to pay a fixed income in lieu
of interest to the church. The inci
dent will probably cure Rockefeller
of making any more presents.
Maeon the Victor.
One of two explanations is appli
cable to Mason's victory for the
United States senstorship, either the
machine is dethroned as a political
power, and with it has fallen the in
fluence of (Jov. Tanner, or else the
latter courented to the consolidation
of rival interests on Mason, with full
knowledge that another vacancy was
to occur in the Illinois representa
tion in the upper house of congress
oon by Cullom's going into the cab
inet, and he preferred to abide his
time to seize upon the opportunity.
In any event the state of Illinois is
to be congratulated. While the re
publican party has lowered its con
ception of the dignity of the office of
United States senator by considering
such men as Madden and Lorimer in
connection with it, yet through the
aid of public opinion, well pro
nounced, the state of Illinois has not
r uttered the disgrace that overhung
it. Mason is probably not as much of a
statesman as Hitt, but he is a popu
lar fellow, and is doubtless the best
timber that Chicago put forward,
and The Alters congratulates him
on the distinguished honor which has
come to bis political labors. Uo
questionably he was the choice of
leading Rock Island county republi
The Helreaa Traffic.
When he was editor of the Omaha
World-Herald in 1895 Mr. Bryan ex
pressed some very decided opinions
in that paper on the subject of the
barter of American heiresses for for
eign titles. In an article published
Nov. 8 of that year he said that the
rearing of rich American girls in
such a manner as to make them de
sire titled husbands was a reflection
on the parents, who cultivated a love
for aristocracy rather than a pride in
Amcricnn democracy, and added:
"Our forefathers decided that ti
tles were dangerous to liberty, and it
is to be regretted that the patriotism
of revolutionary days has given place
to a disgraceful scramble, among the
daughters of some of our multi-mil
lionaires, for lords, and dukes, ana
counts. W hen an Knglishman or
Frenchman, or other foreigner, with
nothing to commend him but a title
inherited from a remote ancestor
(and possibly only retained because
it could not be pawned), reaches ma
jority, he embarks for the United
States and enters into negotiations
for some marriageable heiress or
heiress apparent. Instead of
taaehing their daughters to
regard with favor the suits
of worthy sons of this country, too
many ambitious parents lead their
daughters into a market place, and
seek to barter a fortune for a crown.
Love may leap across the ocean and
join in holy wedlock 'two hearts
that beat as one,' but social ambi
tion and hereditary avarice can never
weld two hearts into home-building
material. When cupid becomes a
boodler and courtship is carried on
by brokers, marriage is a mockery.
It is significant that poor American
girls, however accomplished, have
no charms for impecunious noblemen.
It ia also a source of congratulation
that American sons do not seek for
eign alliances. It is a shame that
some American daughters do."
Some recent startling events have
amply verified the wisdom of Mr.
Bryan's deprecation of money

of Havlin's theatre In St. Louis, a
brother-in-law of John Havlin, commit
ted suicide there by shooting himself
