Jesse James, son of Jesse James,
the outlaw, has been enrolled in the
circuit court as an attoruey-at-law. He

Under the guidance of President But

that they were underpaid.
Professor Felix Adler. founder of the

Ex-flovernor Odell of New York is
believed to be in a fair way to resume
the political power which was wrested

Senator Piatt were violently antagon

likely to be a combination which will

Patti has preserved her voice by tak

At a recent dinner in Boston at
whiah a number of clergvmen were
present there was some good natured
chaff between Bishop Hall of the Epis
copal diocese of Vermont and Presi
dent Buckham of the Vermont univer
sity. The latter had been joked re
garding the case with which anybody
could join the Congregational church
and he replied by telling of a negro
who had applied repeatedly for mem
bership of St. Paul's Episcopal church
In Burlington. According to Dr. Buck-
ham Bishop Hall was not satisfied that
the negro's state of mind justified ad
mission, so he advised the applicant
to pray that his spiritual condition
might improve. After doing so he
made a new application. The bishop
said to him: "Well, Erastus. have
you prayed as I told you to?" "Yas,
indeedy. suh; I done prayed an I done

St. Louis Republic: With existing
conditions withia the republican ranks
in Chicago and the northern part of
the state, the chances for Illinois dem
ocrats controlling the next legislature
on joint ballot are materially im
The democratic state organization
and leaders of the party, regardless of
factional differences, appreciate the fa
vorable circumstances and are urging
the nomination of two members of the
house of representatives in every sen
atorial district where there is the least
possibility of a democratic victory.
Chicago democrats, united for the
first time In 12 years, are consistenly
following this plan, and the number of
uom'nn I ti3 for the lower house will
be at least double the figure for 1904.
The brutal republican majority in"
the senate, the direct result of th 1904
landslide,- makes it practically- impos
sible for the democrats to control that
body, as nearly every i hold-over sena
tor is a republican.
With two nominations, however, for
the lower house in every contestable
district, the outlook is most promising
for a biz democratic majority in the
house and consequent control of the
joint session of the legislature, which
will elect a successor to Shelby II. Cul-lom.
The ltu-ie Bill.
After one of the most strenuous con
tests the congress of the United States
has known, the administration measure
for the regulation of interstate trans
portation went to the president for
signature containing most of the pro
visions for which he contended.
The enactment of the law is a con
cession to the demands of the national
platforms of both the great political
parties, though it is in reality more of a
democratic than a republican measure.
Much more so that it is not the make
shift which the Aldrich combine in tho
senate would have had it. is due to the
able support and ill-requited loyalty
given the president throughout the
long struggle by democratic senators.
The new act strengthens the original
interstate commerce law and makes
more efficient the control of the inter
state commerce commission over inter
state traffic. The iower of the commis
sion is not so great as it would have
been if the court review provisions ad
vocated by democratic senators, under
the leadership of Senator Bailey, had
been incorporated, but the restrictions
upon summary court injunctions are
accepted by democrats like Senator
Tillman as making the measure fairly
That the measure is more democratic
than republican is readily seen by ref
erence to the national platforms adop
ted by the two parties in 1904. The
republicans in their platform did little
more than "point with pride" to the
rather meager achievement of their
party in providing "additional remedies
for the prevention of discrimination in
The democratic platform on which
the conservative Parker made his race
for the presidency contains the direct
demand for such enlargement of the
powers of the interstate commerce
commission as would protect the inter
state shipper and the interstate trav
eler from unjust discrimination of any
sort. The president's prosecutions of
rebaters and unlawful combinations en
gaged in interstate traffic have also
accorded much more nearly with the
demands of the democrats than witn
those of the republican platform of
Yate9 in Cook County.
Former Governor Yates will, on July
9, open his campaign in Cook county.
He will make 20 speeches, perhaps
more, and will keep up a continual fire

with the "trust press" of Chicago and
the gigantic federal combine there,
they will know that somebody has im
pressed the people with the truth. This
somebody is Richard Yates.
While the recent earthquake in San
Francisco was the most terrible and
the conflagration which followed prob
ably the most extensive and destruc

MOLINE IS SHORT
Not Enough Parker Votes to Cive
Delegate to Democratic
COMMITTEE FINDS PUZZLE
Peculiar Situation Confronts County
Organization Appeal May Be
Taken to State Committee.
Because too many Moline democrats
voted for Debs in 1904. they may have
no representation on the delegations
to the democratic state, congressional
and senatorial conventions. It was a
very peculiar situation that the county
committee found itself confronted with
in the establishing of the lines of the
delegate districts, at its adjourned meet
ing last evening, but finally decided upon
a plan placing the two precincts of the
beventh ward, of the Sixth ward, of the
Fifth ward, and the first precinct, of
the Fourth ward, which has a total of
13.S votes for Parker, in one district,
and the second precinct of the Fourth
ward goes with the two precincts of
the Third ward, of the Second ward,
and of the First ward, with the total of
134 Parker votes, to make up the other
Neither Hum 200 Vote.
The calls for the state, congress
ional, and senatorial conventions are
on a basis of one delegate for 200 votes '
and as neither of these Moline districts
has the required 200, neither was given a
delegate. Not only was the committee
confronted with that situation, but
there was also the fact that the law re
stricts all delegate districts to seven
contiguous precincts in Moline that had
as a total 200 votes.
.None of the committeemen from Mo
line were in attendance at either meet
ing of the committee to offer any solu
tion of the problem. However, there
was division of sentiment in the com
mittee as to what disposal should bo
made of the situation. Nevertheless, near
ly e very member and democrat present
favored adjusting things in Moline's fav
or if possible. It was finally concluded
that if the democrats of that city were
not satisfied with the districts and rep
resentation, an appeal could be taken
to the states committee and a settle
ment of the question reached in that
The call for the county convention
will be based on one delegate for 23
