' The best way the republicans of
Ohio can get harmony out of the war

Crlppen's companion In that sensa
tional voyage across the Atlantic has
a fine vaudeville engagement awaiting
her if she cares to avail herself of it.
Jnst-about now many of the poli
ticians of the country are hard at
srork preparing the impromptu, ex
temporaneous speeches they are to
deliver "on the spur of the mo
ment" whenever and wherever an
opportunity offers itself during the
time that intervenes between the
present and the forthcoming au
Representative Longworth said in
his speech as temporary chairman of
the Ohio republican convention:
"Laying all other questions aside,
there is one thing In Judson Harmon's
career that disqualifies him for the
presidency. No man who has spent the
active years of his professional life as
an advocate of the lnterests'of corpor
ate wealth can bring to the presidency
that single minded devotion to the in
terests of the people, that capacity for
seeing clearly their side of the ques
tion that they have the right to de
mand." The ex-president's son-in-law is en
croaching upon the preserves of the
muck-raking, envious demagogues in
thus reflecting upon the integrity of a
public man. A good many persons,
critical of the make-up of our federal
judiciary and viewing with alarm the
elevation of railroad lawyers and other
corporation attorneys to the bench,
have been branded v.Uh the hot iron
of hate for stating the very conclusion
announced by the altogether respecta
ble and standpat Longworth.
It happens in the case in point that
1ongworth's shot glances off the armor
of the man aimed at. "Guilt is always
personal" is Governor Harmon's de
fense against any intimation of pro
corporation bias in him.

The president has reached a wls.-j
conclusion. He doe3 not appear well
on the hustings as he is lacking in dis
cretion. Only trained public speakers
can steer clear of mistakes, and Mr.
Taft lacks schooling iu this respect.
His speeches, in which he gave clean
bills of health to Cannon and Aldrich,
and his emphatic endorsement of the
tariff bill about wrecked his adminis
tration. The people can not be made
to believe that Cannon and Aldrich are
purists or that the tariff law is "the
best law ever passed." They believe
Cannon and Aldrich stand in the way
of good government and they know

The president has talked neither well
nor wisely and he has been too much
away from his duties. With his re
turn to the White house he may re
cover some of his lost prestige if he
tacks. his course differently. He must
know he can not serve the people and
serve those who are serving the inter
ests. The so-called standpatters are
wrecking the republican party. They
represent the things the people do not
want and will not have. Instead of
patting on the back the 'Aid riches, Can
aons, Depews and Tawneys and urging
war on the Beveridges, Dollivers, Cum
minses and La Follettes, he must re
verse himself or his administration
will be a lamentable failure. He can
not shower patronage upon Lorimer
and deny it to others because they will
not bow to the interests.
Thus far President Taft's administra
tion has been a failure. He may save
it from utter ruin by getting nearer to
Other Cities After It.
Rock Island will have to go some to
keep up with the procession of other
Illinois cities which have begun the
circulation of petitions for the submis

, commission plan of government.
Quincy, Joliet, and a number of other
cities are contemplating submission of
the question this fall. In Charleston
the petition has already been filed, and
.Judge T. N. Cofer has given notice of
the special election to be held Tuesday,
The new Illinois law Is certain to be

In the state will look with Intense in-1
terest upon results obtained in those
other municipalities which adopt the
new plan of government. .
Members of the Chamber of Com
merce were first to start the ball roll
ing In Quincy. Among other things
done before announcing their Intention,
they wrote to mayors, merchants, la
boring men and others In many cities
which have the commission plan in
other states, and requested informa
tion as to whether the new plan of
government had been successful, arid
If so, why.
The replies are unanimous In favor
of the commission plan. Here are a
few brief excerpts from them:
J. J. Elder, mayor of Keokuk, Iowa-

And there are many others with sim
ilar expression of enthusiastic endorse
ment of the new plan of government.
The Telephone Situation.
The telephone situation in Rock Is
l?Ld may readily be adjusted by the
Reck Island council by considering the
Wif.hes of the business men and tele
phone users generally. The Indepen
dent plant war, originally installed as
the result of many years' agitation due
to unsatisfactory service on the part
of the Bell company. What-was true
of Rock Island was true of many other
cites in this respect. .The independent
rtelt phone has not proven a success in
a general sense. In Rock Island it has
bten given every encouragement by
the council in the form of ordinances
and franchise extensions and yet it has
lost money. It is now going in the
i hoic deeper day by day. Lack of pat-
! opposition to monopoly, has not been
forthcoming revenue is essential to
commercial success and the Indepen
dent company has not received the
revenue sufficient to enable it to keep
its head above water, much less to
earn anything on its investment.
P. has failed once and is said to be
on-the verge of complete bankruptcy.
It Is up to the telephone user to say to
'he council whether they will consent
to the release from the franchise obli
gations and an outright purchase by
the Central Union or to leave the inde
pendent to its fate, which in the end
wruld be the same thing as far as the
Central Union is concerned.
The attitude of the average tele
phone user in the present emergency
will naturally be guided largely by the
character of the service furnished by
the Central Union. The council by
recent franchise fixed the question of
rates. The service, it must be
admitted, has not improved and is any-
tiling but satisfactory. The Central
Union, admitting the shortcoming, at
tributes it to unsettled conditions inci
dent to the overhauling of Its plant,
pieparatory to the improvement in its
physical condition. When this is com
pleted, the company promises service.
Hew that will be remains to be seen.
Assuredly there should be no excuse
for Rock Island not having telephone
accommodations equal to the best.
Meanwhile the tendency of public sen
timent seems to be that one system sat
isfactorily conducted from every view
point would be preferable to two lines

dations. Aug. 2 in American

MILLION IN DEAL
But Declares His Profit Came
From Legitimate Purchases
INQUIRY NOT EXPECTED
Chicago Board of Trade Operators
Now Are Planning to Squeeze the
New King in September.
Chicago, Aug.. 2. Theodore H
Waterman, the newly crowned "King
of the Wheat Pit" and successor to
the throne abdicated by James A.
Patton, richer by $1,000,000 or more
as a result of the highly successful
deal in July wheat he closed out on
Saturday, emphatically insists that
the deal was in no wise a corner.
Old-time operators on the Board of
Trade say that if the Waterman July
deal was not a corner, then they do
not know what a wheat corner is.'
The directors of the Board of
Trade, heeding the complaints made
to them of the Waterman "elevator
combine" operations in July wh'eat,
will, it is thought, make a perfunc
tory Investigation and then dismiss
the matter without action.
There is no rule on the Board of
Trade prohibiting corners. An at
tempt some time ago was made to
pass a by-law that would make cor
ners an Impossibility. It was voted
down without ceremony. Board of
LTrade men the majority of them as
the vote snowed take the stand mat
cornering the wheat or oats or the
corn or the provision market is a
legitimate business transaction, and
one that redounds to the benefit of
the producers. The line of reasoning
is this: Corners invariably boost
prices; when prices go up the farmer
gets more money for his grain.
Watmnan Denies II Had Corner.
"King" Waterman, the silent, un
communicative speculator who deals
in millions with as much nonchalance
as many a man deals in dollars, who
risks immense sums of money on his
judgment of market conditions, said:
"I have never attempted to corner
a market. I buy large quantities of
wheat because I want it delivered to
me as the contracts say."
Nearly 700,000 bushels of wheat
on July contracts were delivered to
Waterman on Saturday. He is the
man who will have to find a market
for this amount of grain.
Notwithstanding Mr. Waterman's
denial from Albany, his home, that
he is organizing a corner in Septem
ber wheat, well informed Board of
Trade men estimate the millers
present holdings in September at 5,-
000,000 bushels and they expect him
to largely augment these holdings
within the next f ow days.
Board of Trade men are drawing
comparisons now between Waterman
and Patten, between the Albany
man's deals and those engineered by
the former wheat king.
In May wheat a year ago Patten
successfully ran the biggest vheat
deal in his career. He made millions.
Come to Grief in Slay.
In May wheat this year Waterman
attempted a big deal. He came to
grief. His losses were heavy.
In a July corner thi3 year Water
man was a winner.
In a September deal a year ago
Patten came another cropper.
Waterman has a big September
deal now under way.
Corners in September wheat. Board
cf Trade men say, are rarely attempt
ed. That is why they will'watch the
new "King of the Pit" so clcsely
during the next few weeks.
Waterman differs from Patten in
that where Patten had hundreds of
followers in the market, Waterman
has but few. Like Patten he has a
way of keeping his own counsel and
working in devious paths. He is
about 50 years old, short, stout, with
a wealth of iron gray hair, a closely
cropped iron gray mustache and a
keen blue eye. He is fond of base
ball, automobiles and other forms of
sport. In Chicago he spends most of
his time at leading downtown clubs
during his leisure hours.
That a clean, nice, fragrant com
pound like Bucklen's Arnica Salve
will instantly relieve a bad burn, cut,
scald, wound or piles, staggers skep
tics. But great cures prove its a
wonderful healer of the worst sores,
ulcers, boils, felons, eczema, skin
eruptions, as also chapped hands,
sprains and corns. Try it, 25 cents

I am In a quandary. 1 had supposed I
would marry Donald Cb:;se, and now
comes Oscar Richmond to mix me all
np. Donald is steady, honorable, has
excellent judgment; Oscar is band
some, full of sentiment, fascinating. I

but Oscar carries me right off my feet.

very well, earning a fair salary and
with a prospect of boing a partner.
Oscar is out of business just now. 1
don't exactly understand why. He is
very reticent. I like reticence in a
man; it bespeaks self control. Oscar
can talk with me by the hour without
revealing any of bis affairs. Of course
if be proposes to ice I shall expect that
he will tell me everything.
I have trii d to get Donald to tell ma
why he distrusts Oscar. He says he
doesn't binirclf know why. It is quite
likely that his distrust is due to jeal

I asked Girard what he thought of
Donald and received the same reply,!
"He's n bang up giod fellow too. I
was servr-d right for relying upon the
opinion of such a lightweight person.
Girard Roberts seems to have plenty
of money as well as a taste for jewel
ry. The other day Aunt Allda was
showing him a diamond she wished to
turn into fuuds. lie told her to go
among the jewelers, ask them to fix
a price on It and he would give ber
$10 more than the highest bid. She
did so and pot a bid of $270 for the
stone. Girard told her it was cheap
at $31)0 and he would give her tbat for

1 were present when the sale was
made, and Girard laughingly told us
that be would rely on us as witnesses
in case aunty backed out. lie didn't
have the mouey with him. but said he
would bring it the next afternoon at 5
When he called nunty was out Os
car and I were In the library. Girard
called to me to say to aunty when she
came In tbat she would find the money
for the diamond under a vase on the
mantel in the parlor. I promised to
do' so. Oscar asked me to go to walk
with him. I consented: went upstairs
to get my hat, and we walked to the
park. When I returned I had forgot
ten all about telling aunty that the
money for her diamond was on the
parlor mantel. Indeed, I never thought
of It till Just before going to bed; then
I told ber. She went downstairs to
get it. It was gone.
Everybody is dissatisfied with me
and I am dissatisfied with myself for
being so thoughtless as to have left
$300 so long in an exposed position.
It has unset the whole household. The
servants who consider themselves un

very glum. Aunty t furious with me.

called it. with Oscar and he didn't like
to intrude upon us.
I asked him who he suspected, and
he said that, since the front door stood

during the evening when we were all

I have had a stroke an awful visits
tlon! Donald Chase turns out to be the
thief who took the bills left on the
mantel to pay for aunty's Jewel. This
morning when he was at business a
constable called at his room with n
search warrant and found the bills in
his bureau drawer. To think that Don
ald. who!ri we have all knowa so long
and considered the very soul of honor,
shonld have done such a thing!
How con Id he hare taken the money
without our knowins It? What Girnrd
Roberts told me is the only thing tha
fits the case. Doubtless Donr.'tl caller1,
came right in, was walling for some of
0s, when be noticed the bills. He must
have taken them and goue out without
making himself known.
I am broiten hearted by this discovery
that Donald Chase is a common thief.
Singular, isn't it. that a girl doesn't
know she loves a man till he turns out
to be a thief? That's the way with us
women; we are always acting by"con
trarles. Not long ugo I was uncertain
about Oscar and thought Donald a
splendid man. But I was fascinated
with Oscar, and Donald seemed devoid
of romance. Now that Donald is In
trouble, through his own fault, 1 am
giving him my heart. -
Girard Roberts has just come In. He
says that Donald has given bail for his
appearance when his trial conies off
and bs now free. Girard says that, not
withstanding appearances are against
Donald, he doesn't believe him guilty.
"Then," I said. "I don't believe him
guilty either." But the next minute I
reproved myself for being influenced
by this easy going man. Did be not
say when I asked him his opinion of
Donald before this matter occurred.
"He's a good fellow too?" What's the
use of considering the views of oue
who talks like tbat? I told Girard to
tell Donald to come and see me, but be
said he did not think Donald would un
til his innocence has been proved. I
really believe there has been some mis
take, but it is very bard to feel sure
about It. It all happened so naturally

money was where he would see it at
least, who else could have come in?
and the bills being found In his bureau
drawer. Oh. dear! I must stop think
ing of the horrid thing or I shall gor
One thing more I will say: After all.
there is something Just too loveTy for
anything In Girard Roberts saying that
he doesn't believe Donald guilty. If
any one shonld take anything of mine
and It wore found in his bureau draw
er I couldn't be so generous as to at
tribute the theft to an error.
Donald has been to see me. He did
not act or talk like a guilty ma a.
What's more, he didn't seem to realize
his awful position. I supposed that
he was more sensitive. Though charg
ed with stealing money that was in
tended for aunty, with whom be has
been on friendly terms for years, to
say nothing of bis devotion to me. he
seemed very unconcerned. When I
learned he was downstairs I nerved
myself for a very painful interview.
For fear I should say the wrong thing
I thought over what I should say.
When I entered the room I dreaded to
look at binx Indeed. I kept my eyes
on the floor.-
"Donald." I said, "you know bow in
terested we all are that you should
clear yourself of this horrible charge.
We will all do anything in the world

I looked up. and what was my sur
prise to see an amused look on Don
