Bottle and Bar.
' Massachusetts" has just enacted a
law designed to distinguish between
places where alcoholic liquors are sold
to be consumed on the premises and
those where they are sold to be car
ried off and consumed in unsociable
guzzling at home. It bears the allitera
tive title of the bar and bottle bill.
With certain reservations in favor of
hotels and their guests, no seller can
have a license to sell by the bottle and
also over the bar.
The theory of the law Is that the bar
room is the poor man's club, but it
would be better for him if? after having
had a few drinks with his friend3
Saturday night, he should not be able
to take away a quart of red liquor to
consume during the hours of Sunday
when he might be much better em
ployed. Sociologists and temperance reform
ers believe the effects of the law wil;
be most useful.
Kitchener the Warrior.

i3 Kitchener of Khartum. No wonder
he is sin object of municipal interest.
Net that he cares. Vanity was left
out when he was made up. Applause
and attention cf tho multitude do not
touch him. Back of his brain may be
a cell or two sensitive of the thought
of fame, but th4y do not control.
What he has been concerned about,
what he always has beon concerned
about, is the day's wcrk, the duty be
fore his nose, with no dreaming or po
eticizing. Not that he is modest, for
modesty is as foreign to his nature as
boastfulness. Taciturn and practical,
a mixture of a bulldog and a captain
of industry, Kitchener, probably more
than any other living man, represents
the implacable character of modern
Senators by Direct Vote.
One after another the states of
the union are rallying to a proposed
amendment to the federal constitution
for the election of United States sena
tors by direct vote of tha people.
Thirty states have today approved the
amendment, and it requires the rati
fication of only one more state to have
the necessary two-thirds endorsement.
The last 3tate to vote its approval is
'Massachusetts. .The states previously
recorded in its support are these:
Arkansas, California, Minnesota,
Utah, Kansas, Texas, Illinois. Indiana,
South ' Dakota, Idaho, Washington,
North Carolina, Tennessee, Montana,
Wyoming, Nevada, Michigan, Wiscon
sin, Missouri, Iowa, Oregon, Louisiana,
Colorado, Kentucky, Pennsylvania,
Nebraska, Oklahoma, Alabama and
New Jersey 29. ,
When one other state shall ratify
the amendment it will be obligatory
upon congress to heed the mandate of
the people. The fifth article of the
constitution provides the course fol
lowed to compel congress to frame tha
In many of the states senators are
cow chosen in the primary, but the
choice of the primary can not be made
binding upon the legislature. That was
shown in Illinois when the republican
voters in the primary endorsed Sena
tor Hopkins, whom the people did not
want. ,In Oregon, a different plan is
followed. There voters cast their bal
lots irrespective of party affiliation for
the candidate of their choice, and It
happened In the last election that the
senatorial nominee of the primary was
a democrat, Chamberlin, while the
legislature was republican. . '
Nevertheless the legislature ratified
the choice of the primary.
Importance of the Party Label.
The party label has few wearers
nowadays. Early -in the present ses
sion of congress, President Taft caused
a railroad bill to be Introduced and
TRADES Tar? COUNCIL
took: occasion to notify senators, who
are members of his party, that he de
sired It passed. Instead of accepting
the president's measure as presented
the senate and house hare amended
it eo that It is beyond recognition.
The vote on Important changes reveals
the futility of 'party cries and the Im
potence o the party whip. In hardly
an Instance have ' party ties been
drawn, senators voting as they thought
best Instead of blindly following party
This indopeldent sentiment was ac
centuated by Senator Clay, democrat,
of Georgia, who In a recent speech,
said: "I will vote .for any bill intro
duced by any senator, whether he is a
democrat .or a republican or an insur
gent If it is right, wise and just and
best for my country." Then as if to
burn the party bridges behind him he
said: ,- .- "...
"I do not hesitate to state that if
my party were to indorse a measure
which I believed to be radically wrong.
which I believed to be vicious in prin
ciple, and which I believed to be
against the masses of the people of
the United States, if it lost me my
political life, I would vote against it
I believe in independence of thought.
I deny that any political party can
force me to vote against my honest
judgment and conviction."
These be timely and brave words
We need to hear them oftener. Party
should only be supported when it is
right and he is not a safe man who
votes with his party, right or wrong.
It is only through independent action,
that wrong can be driven from high
places and that honesty and patriotism
can prevail. The strict party man Is
a menace; the independent is the
strong cog in the machine. This is a

necessary. But he 13 not a good party

Bryan Makes Good His Promise and
Criticises Saloon Interests.
! Nebraska City, Neb., May 17. Mafc
ing goi his promise, W. J. Bryan last
night invaded the enemy's country and
delivered an address in favor of county
option and the principles of the initia
tive and referendum.
Mr. Bryan spoke in a public hall and
devoted himself at the outset to the
doctrine of free" spirits. Referring to
county option, he said: "The attitude
of the saloon Interests is that they
are opposed to county option, that they
are not willing that the people shaft
have the right to vote upon this ques
tion or any other question. In other
words, they would defeat popular gov
ernment as it la expressed in the In
itiative and referendum, rather than
have the county option question sub-
nltted to a vote, and some of them In
this county go so far as to oppose the
public discussion of the initiative and
referendum for fear that reforms may
be adbpted." f

starve than fro through the ordeal of
being mistaken for a murderess. Think
of the long wait In jail for a trial,
my portrait everywhere staring me In
the face, gaped at in a crowded court
room. My God. I shall go mad!
For a week I have been dreading an
arrest. I fancy every one with whom
I come In contact Is a detective watch
ing me. I am getting thin and have
lost all my color. I must divert my
mind and look less worried or It will
be assumed that my crime Is preying
upon me. I will try to read. Perhaps
a sensational novel would draw my
thoughts from this frightful sensation
of my own.
I hnro bwn to the library and
brought home n book. How k!nd that
librarian was to me! I wonder If be
.knew that I wes dreading a 'terrible
misfortune. When he was telling me
about the singular things he finds be
tween the leaves of books returned to
the library I forgot my trouble. He
says be finds everything from a love
letter to a hairpin. How careless we
women are! Men seldom leave things
between the pages of books, but men
don't read as many books as women.
The will bas been found. 1 am heir
ess to a great fortune. I have been
congratulated. I hinted to one of my
congratulators that I shall be suspect
ed of having poisoned uncle. He re
plied that I would at least bave "mil
lions for defense." But that would not
remove the charge, the trial and the
stain to follow. The same person bade
me not worry. He says that detec
tives have been watching my every
act since the crime was committed
and they have admitted to not getting
a single H6rn of evidence against me.
I knew it. That woman who Insisted
on coming in to make a dress for me
for a soug was one of them. That
man I saw at so many places. In the
shops, on the street, everywhere, was
another. I am not reassured by the
person who has comforted me, but 1

another. I long to talk to my friend

This morning 1 received a letter ad
dressed in a strange hand. I studied
the superscription a long while, but 1
could not make out from whom It
could be. It as postmarked as sent
from this town. Finally it occurred to
me to open It. J suppose I would have
done so before had my mind not been
so tortured by the frightful specter
that has been banging over me. What
was my surprise to see at the bottom
of the letter. -Tour friend The Libra

After talking with you yesterday X went
home and, t&iclnff up a newspaper, reed
a detailed report of the doctors who were
deputed to analyse the poison found In
the case of your late uncle. Suddenly
my fingers released their snip on the pa

Cashed upon me. What a singular fac

awakened: I remembered a wet. dismal

rarity. 1 went to the shelf, where 1
found it covered with dust, took It down
and gave it to the stranger.
It was a treatise on poisons.
A group of events recorded In my brain
had led me to this remembrance. Mjr
ehats with jrou as to your uncle' e death,
all I have heard about It and lastly this
report of the doctors might not that book
contain mention of the poison reported by
them aa having been used to kill your un

1 found lying between two past's devoted
to a description of It and lis effects a
soiled piece of paper. On It was a note
written In a peculiar hand referring to
the chapter and page on which this pol-'
son that filled 'our uncle was described.
But one tiling more remained for me to
do to establish my find as a bit or evi-.
dence. 1 referred to the record of the
book's withdrawal and found the name ot
the person who had withdrawn It. or at

that the book had not been taken out
