were sitting on the sand In the shade
of a huge umbrella. Oblivious of a

the sunshade and attracted their atten

The man was so exactly like himself
that Jimmie stared in fascination.
Then he sought the box office, where
two men were counting money.

; some kind friend of the gentleman in
the White house who has been so busy
tor years in calling other people
naughty namPt, explain what he would
call himself? As the Nevada Journal
pti is: If Mr. Bowen was an "dlsln-
eou. Mr. Chandler a deliberate and
nqualified. Judge Parker an Inven
tive, Mr. Storer a perfidious, Mr. Wal
lace an utter, Mr. Whitney a delib
erate, and Mr. Harriman a willful liar,
and if others would be called "a short
er and an uglier word," what may we
think of a gentleman who solemnly
declares what is the truth Is not so?
Our own vocabulary is somewhat
limited, we must admit, when it comes
to qualifying a falsehood. So we ask
the gentleman of the White house this
question, merely for information
certaming the inaications. Kansas
was .carried by the democratic party
in 1S9G, but was lost in the two suc
ceeding campaigns. The pendulum is
swinging back, and the spirit manifest
in that state for democratic principles
and for the democratic leader is only
indicative of the public sentimeut in
the states adjacent to it.
Oklahoma has declared for progres
sive democracy and for the nomina
tion of Mr. Bryan. Its electoral votes
are conceded to the democratic ticket
even by the republican politicians of
the state. It is true that some assert
that should Mr. Roosevelt forget all
that he has said about not being a
candidate and allow honors to be
thrust upon . him, he might make a
winning race in Oklahoma. But it is
only the men who enjoyed the gifts
that fell rich and fast from the Roose
velt hand when the state was still a
territory who even hazard this guess.
The people who never subsisted on
federal food from the white house
have no fear that the electoral vote
of the state could be in doubt for a

Minnesota is likewise in the Bryan
column. The candidacy of Governor
Johnson, honorable and proper as It

justified in seeking a higher station,

nor himself, but by certain faction ele
ments in New York that desired
chiefly to spread the seeds of dissen
sion within the party. Governor
Johnson has seen the meaning of that
New York support and has not en
couraged it. He has not made and
his friends say he will not make any
statement that would indicate he is a
candidate for the nomination.
The indications are that the Den
ver convention will be a love feast,
that the party will be a unit after the
nominations have been made, and that
the campaign will be urged with the
vigor and the fire that characterized
the contest of 1S9C, but with different

There are many questions of grave
importance for the taxpayers and cit

of local option or prohibition, and
some of the following leading ques
tions are arguments against prohibi

tions on personal liberty.
If the people can answer these ques
tions in the aflirmative, then prohibi

tions which are pointed out by these
questions are not desired, then you
should vote against prohibition.
Here are the questions:
Do you want to pay higher taxes?
Do you want public improvements

Do you want vacant stores and resi

A City Without Saloons.
BY THE PRESS COMMITTEE OF THE
LOCAL, OPTION COMMITTEE.
Cambridge, Mass., has had no li
censed saloons since 18S45. There were
122 of them at one time, but they are
occupied now by other lines of busi
ness or as dwellings. There is of
course some illegal selling, some
"kitchen bar rooms," but it has been
reduced to a niinimuifi.
Results: Thirty-three physicians
signed the following statement:
"The undersigned, physicians prac
tising in Cambridge, bear testimony
from our observation to the improved
condition of the city since the saloons
have been closed. The streets are more
quiet and free from intoxicated per
sons; and so far as our practice leads
us to those quarters of the city where
the saloons did the most harm and we
find much less evidence of the abuse
of liquor and an improved moral

Review of Church Growth.
Dr. II. K. Carroll, who, was in charge
of the government census of churches
in 1890. has published in the New
Yorki Christian Advocate statistical
tables for 1907 of ministers, churches
and communicants of various denom
hiations in this country. The net gains
lor an denominations in 1907 were
2.301 ministers, 4,214 churches and
C27.54C communican.ts. In point of
numbers the Roman Catholic figures
are estimates and include all persons
baptized. It reports 15,093 clergymen,
12,482 churches and 11,371,970 com
municants, a gain of 240,000 commun
. icants. The Methodist Episcopal
church includes 17.SC1 ministers, 27,
9G5 churches, 3.03G.GG7 communicants
and a gain of 52.40G. The. white Bap
tists, north and south, have 24,410 min
isters, 30,891 churches and 3,137,lii
members, and a gain of 03,205. . The
colored Baptists have 12,204 ministers,
17,721 churches, 1.117,824 members

Springfield Register: . The many
friends of John L. Pickering of this
city are urging him to present his
name to' the democratic voters at the
August primaries for the position of
clerk of the supreme court. Mr. Pick
ering was the democratic nominee for
that office six yeors ago and ran over
IS.O00 votes ahead of his ticket. It
is safe to say there is no man in the
state who would make a more faith
ful and painstaking official and none
whose election would reflect more
credit upon the party. It seems use
less to say a word in reference to his
democracy, as that has been proven
