According to estimates, the property
of the Harriman estate iu Illinois and
from which the state hopes to secure
an inheritance tax, is valued at from
$10,000,000 to $25,000,000. Mr. Harri
xaan's property is alleged to bo tax
able under tthe new inheritance tax
law which went into effect July 1,
1909 . Although he died a non-resident,
this fact, it is contended, will not pre
vent the taxation of a part of his es
tate. The new tax law is most com
prehensive and stringent in its terms.
The. tax rate is 2 per cent.
The Elections This Fall.
With the exception of a couple of
special elections, the people of Illinois
have an "off" year this year; but some
others are not so fortunate. Ten
states will vote for governor or minor
state officers next month, yet in none
of these states except Maryland and
"Virginia hs any especial interest being
Of the, three states which choose
governors. Massachusetts may elect the
republican candidate. Rhode Island
will possibly be carried by the repub
licans, both these results being the
effect of tariff legislation, if they so
occur; but in Virginia the vote will
be close with the chances in favor of
. the democrats.
Maryland's election will be for con
troller, but the proposition for an
amendment to its state constitution
will attract much larger interest than
will the division on that officer.
Rhode Island, in state canvasses, has
been as uncertain for the past 10 or 12
years as Connecticut was a little ear
lier. Several democratic governors
have been elected by that state in re
cent times. In 1909, however, the re
publicans appear to be. in fairly robust
form. Taft carried Rhode Island in
1908 by 19.000. and Pothier. the repub
lican candidate for governor,--won it

There may be special significance
in the report that in some of the
western states so few men have, ap-

The St. Ixniis Republic makes the
following timely and significant com
ment: "It was under the lash of a cruel
necessity that President Taft, shak
ing for, 'party solidarity,' extolled the
Payne tariff and assailed the republi
can insurgent senators and represen
tatives of the middle west. His
Winona speech was, and was intended
to be, the signal for a civil war within
the republican party, the first rally
ing bugles of which are already sound
ing. "The president's attack upon the in
surgents was made deliberately. His
intention to make it was announced
from Beverly several weeks before
ho started on his tour. Disregarding
the counsel of his more conservative
republican advisers in the east, Mr.
Taft, after full consideration, aligned
himself with that element of his party
which tolerates no revolt against the
policy of monopoly protection.
"That faction of the republican party
would rather see a democrat in con
gress than a republican who stands
for the western demand that 'every
schedule which shelters a monopoly'
be cut out of the tariff. The insurgent
senators whose terms expire in 1911
and all of the insurgent representa
tives have the best of reasons for in
terpreting the Winona speech to mean
that all the influence of the adminis
tration and of the Aldrich-Cannon fac
tion of the party will be used against
them in the elections of next year.
"The absence from Winona of every
member of the Minnesota delegation in
congress except Representative Taw
ney, the merely formal courtesies ex
changed between tho president and
the Minnesota senators at St. Paul,
and the politely formal breakfast given
the president by Senator Cummins at
Des Moines show plainly enough that
Mr. Taft was received in those states
only as president of the United States
and not as the leader of his party.
. "The threat that notice may be serv
ed by the 'regulars' in Kansas on Sen
ator Bristow, Representative Murdoch
and Governor Stubbs to betake them
selves to the democratic party, and
the fight preparing against Senator La
Follette in Wisconsin, indicate that the
line of compromise haV-been hopeless
ly left behind. The insurgents burned
their bridges behind them when they
voted against the Payne bill and'Hist

the fullest advantage will be taken

Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the Garden of Eden."
The Book of Genesis, iii 23.
A breeze sighs out from Eden
When day draws on to night
A gentle breeze that sways the tree
Upon each distant height.
It whispers, whispers, whispers
Of lonely Edenland.
But there be few save I and you
Who hear and understand.
The breeze comes perfume-laden
From apple-bloom and rose.
And honey-wines from flowering vtaes
In fields where no man goes.
And on into the sunset
The Eden breeze will drift.
To faint and drowse about the brows
That wearily uplift
It brings the crooning echoes
Of humming of the bees i
Across the hill it bears the trill
Of birds fair, melodies;
It chants of reaching meadows.
It speaKs of laughing streams.
The wondrous shade the good trees mads
It fling's above our dreams.
O. you and I we Know it
The breeze that comes at eve.
When mint and mush float through the dustl
And fantasies we weave
The breeze that seems to murmur.
When all about is still.
Of all we lost the bows that tossed
Their welcome from the hilL
The darh. grows close and closer.
And once again we start
To thread the ways of those eld days
That linger in the heart.
The breeze it whispers, whispers.
Of lonely Edenland,
But there be few save I and you
Who hear and understand.

himself with Porter's eyes, which
were, after all. clear and honest.

He came on her suddenly, and she
