The servant girl problem does not

year as a domestic. The anniversary
of her arrival there in that capacity
was celebrated Wednesday, when Mr
Meinecke presented her with a hand
some jrold medal in appreciation of
her long and faithful service. Miss

President Parry, of the Manufactur
er's association, is determined to bring
on a war with organized labor In
forming a new lederation made up of
officers of citizen's alliances of various
places to organize open warfare on
organized labor and incidentally de
stroy the influence of the Civic Feder
ation, which brought about arbitra
tion of the coal strike. Mr. Parrvs so
ciety holds that Senator Hanna and
his civic federation is made up of med
dling politicians, and that their poli
cy of conciliation and arbitration
has proven a costly plaything to the
vested interests. A finish fight is
"what the new organization proposes
and claims to have a defense fund of a
million and a half.
Gov. Yates and the Press.
The announcement of (lov. Yates
that he is a candidate for renomina
tion is not received with glad ac
claims in other- states, according1 to
the republican Springfield News,
which calls attention to the fact that
lie w. papers of all parties unite in
predicting defeat for him and in crit
icising his administration. For in
stance, the Des Moines (Iowa) Capital
'"(iov. Ifichard Yates, of Illinois, has
formally announced his candidacy for
a second term.
"The circumstances under which lie
unfurled his renomination banner
were not as auspicious and inspiring
as he must have -wished. The occa
sion was the Morgan county conven
tion called for the purpose of nomina
ting a county commissioner. The seat
of government of Morgan county is
Jacksonville, the home of Ciov. Yates.
A majority of the governor's admir
ers controlled the convention and se
cured the adoption of resolutions pre
senting him to the republicans of the
state as a candidate. Fifty-one dele
gates . to that convention, however,
voted against the adoption of the res
olutions. "The remarkable fact is disclosed
that 142 state officeholders are cred
ited to Morgan irunty, And yet the
governor received less votes in the
convention than there are members
of his state administration in his own
home county. '
"One must note the apparent set
ting of Ilichard Yates' political sun
with mingled sentiments of regret
and satisfaction. Four years ago he
was nominated by the republicans of
Illinois for the position which he now
occupies. No man was ever confront
ed with greater opportunities for
"win.ning. honorable distinction. He
had the prestige of a venerated fam
ily name. The convention of Illinois
republicans named him as their stand
ard bearer after having rebuked- and
turned down the Chicago bosses who
eternally endeavor to run the politi
cal affairs of the state.
"Instead of starting out upon the
path which opened before him, he
permitted himself to be led directly
into the Lorimer camp, and to the hu
miliation of his friends from that
hour it is openly charged that he has
served" Tirimer with a greater "zeal
than he has served his state. ' He has
shifted, hesitated, evaded, promiseil
and procrastinated. With the time of
Lis stewardship rapidly drawing to a
close he finds to his, chagrin that
those who used him and accomplish
ed their purpose have no. further
time for him. When, he arranged for
a conference a few days ago to dis
cuss his candidacy not a solitary Uni
ted States senator was present..
Even Lorimer had deserted him.
This is a feature of the case which
we say tends to excite sympathy, vet
Uichard Yates, it must be taken for
granted, was acquainted with the po
liticaj history of his state and was
supposed to know whom he could
"There are some bright spots upon
the record of (Jov. Yates administra
tion,' but the general background pre
sents a most unhappy picture. If the
testimony of not alone the Chicago
press, but the -republican press gen
erally throughout the state of Illinois
can be accepted, the man is destined
to overwhelming defeat in the next
republican state convention.
There is a lesson in the career of
Ilichard Yates which ambitious states
men would be wise to take to heart
Commenting upon which the Xews
says it is doubtful if there is a single
newspaper in the United States out
side of "Illinois' which speaks well of
Kichard Yates. And there are few, if
any, in Illinois which do so other than
those tied to the" governor by patron

Closely following on the embarrass

President 1'oosevelt has again shown
his remarkable exclusiveness bv draw

Cleveland should not be present. No
explanation was forthcoming.
When told Mr. Cleveland had already
accepted, and that it would be dis
courteous to tell him he could not

story, said if Mr. Cleveland could not

Such good Republican authority ns
the Chicago Inter Ocean makes a ter
rific arraignment of the result of the
policy. In a recent editorial that pa

one-half the beads of the American
families are in as favorable a position
as they were in 1897." That is Just
what the Democrats have been claim
ing Is the result of the high protection

and that prosperity to the trusts is dis

publican voters should ponder on what
this organ of their party admits, and
Democrats should call their attention
to it and to another paragraph from
the same article, which says:
"The plain truth is that fully one-
half the workers of the United States,

to $3,000 a year, the men who are nei

DAILY SHORT STORY
Molly Hunt's Temptation.
SEPTEMBER NEAR THE
RECORD IN RAINFALL
Data showing the sort of a month
September was has been compiled by
I. M. Sherier, the local observer. He
finds that the month was on the whole
a comfortable one. with an average
temperature of 64 degrees, or .0 de
grees lower than the average month
during the past 32 years. This gives
an excess of temperature for this
year so far of 201, or an average daily
excess of .7. There were light frosts
the 18th and the 24th.
In the matter of rainfall the month
outdid itself in all except one year
during the last 32. The total rainfall
was 7.09 inches, -and the only season
in which it was greater was in 1874,
when 7.86 inches fell. "Trie average
precipitation for the month is 3.10
inches. There has been an excess
since Jan. 1 of 4.S3 inches. Despite
the fact that there was an unusual
amount of rain September was for
the most part clear, having 14 clear
daj-s, 6 partly cloudy and-10 cloudy.

"And now. Mistress Molly, I must bid
you adieu. Your father, your mother,
yoursejf, have merited the thanks of
the Continental congress for harboring
me, and you especially deserve my
thanks for your kindness while I have
been In hiding under your roof."
"Do you go direct to the Americans?'
she asked, putting, up a pair of tempt
ing lips, inviting a farewell kiss.
"No. I go to the house of that Tory
Andrew Moncrief to stop one night."
"And, pray, what will you do that
for?" asked the girl, blanching.
"Margaret Moncrief, his daughter. Is
one of us," he replied. "I must see her
before I return. She and I are warm
The girl drew away. Instinct told
her that when a man risked his life to
meet a woman It was not friendship
that led him to do so. The man called
a goodby, and they hud parted.
The next night a party of British sol
diers appeared on the place of Andrew
Moncrief and asked if a stranger had
stopped there for the night. On being
told that no one was there they search
ed the house, then the outhouses and at
last came upon Lieutenant Lionel Otis
hidden In the haymow. He was search'
ed, and plans of the British fortiflca
tlons at Trenton, with Information as
to the strength of the force defending
them, were found concealed in his
clothing. lie was taken to the house of
Farmer Hunt and led into the kitchen
where Molly was cooking supper
When she saw him she turned deadly
"Good morrow. Mistress Molly." said
the young man. "We meet again very
soon. Some one has given me away.
Molly staggered, without a word, out
of the room, turning her back to the
soldiers that they should not see her
"Strange," said Otis, "that sho should
be so affected. But perhaps she knows
the fate of n spy."
It was late when the prisoner was
taken to the farm, and his guard con
eluded to keep him there over night.
A sergeant in command went to the
second floor and selected a room with
but one window and one door. Into
this room he thrust Lieutenant Otis
placing a mnn at the door and one un
derneath the window. Then the rest
of the guard lay down on the kitchen
floor before the great stone fireplace
alid weut to sleep.
At midnight the sentinel below stood
leaning against the house, his hands
grasping his musket, his hat over his
eyes. Presently he sat down on the
ground, then fell over on his back. He
was asleep. Suddenly he felt his gun
slip from his bands and, looking up,
saw Molly bending over him, holding
a long knife, its point within an Inch
of his heart. He thought her insane,
so wild looking was she.
"What do you want?" he asked.
Molly did not answer; but, keeping
the point of the knife ns near his heart
as possible and her eye fixed on him,
she drew a little away till suddenly
she raised the musket and, pulling up
the firelock, pointed it at him instead
of the knife. Then she told him in a
whisper to go before her, Indicating
the direction by pointing. Marching
him to the house of a patriot whom she
well knew she could depend on, the
two locked him up in the barn, and the
man stood guard while Molly returned
Going at once to an outhouse, she took
out a ladder, raised It to Otis' window
and, mounting, gave a faint tap. Otis'
heart jumped within him as he went
softly to the window and cautiously
raised the sash.
Come," said Molly, and she descend
ed the ladder.
In the barn two horses stood saddled
Molly led the way with one, Otis fol
lowing with the other, through a field
to the rear, and, making a circuit, they
truck the road far from the house.
Molly." paid. Otis, .his voice trem
bling with emotion, "1 owe you every
thing. If I get clear some day I will
return to thank you. If a life of devo
tion will help to repay"
"Molly, listen to me. Perhaps you
thought that .there was more than
friendship between me and Margaret
Moncrief. There is not. She is work
ing with me and was to give me war
secrets. True, her father is a Tory
and must have got wind of my being
on the place."
Oh, no, no! You were Informed on
by a wretch, one unworthy to live a
minute by your side!"
She was ridiug at a gallop, but she
dropped her reins on her horse's neck
and covered her face with her hands.
Molly, sweetheart, never mind who
gave me away, lou have rescued me,
and my life belongs to you. It will be
a willing servitude, for my heart is
also your slave."
No, no, no!" wailed the girl. "I am
unworthy of you. I thought you loved
Margaret Moncrief and were going
from me to her. I betrayed you. I
am a selfish, fiendish creature, x out
you In Jeopardy "of the halter, " and "the
only hope I have for peace of mind is
that I have undone what I have done."
She turned her horse's head and
went galloping back In the direction
from which she had come. Otis reined
In his horse and sat looking after her.
Molly!" he called. "Molly! I for
There was no reply except the di
minishing sound of her horse's hoofs as
she drew farther from him.
After Cornwallis surrender Otis
sought out Hunt's farm, hoping to find
Molly, bnt be was told that she had
pined away and died. Her doctors said
that she suffered from some mental
train that sapped her vitality.
