Paul Morton was undoubtedly a man
of rare ability and genius, but he made
a grave mistake when he abandoned
commercial life for politics. It is not
to be disputed that his membership in
the cabinet at the time of the expos
ure of the Santa Fe rebate discrimina
tions brought scandal upon the admin
istration, and while President Roose
velt may, with every propriety, now
pay a personal tribute to his deceased
secretary of the navy, his attempt to
place credit upon Paul Morton for what
happened in reference to the Santa Fe
is a little far-fetched. Mr. Morton, as
a matter of fact, could not have been
false to what he knew of the Santa Fe
without betraying the trust that road
had reposed in him, inasmuch as he
had not given up his relations with
the road because of unscrupulous
tactics, but merely because of the al
lurements of fickle Washington, and

Chance for Democrats.
The sound advice of Representa
tive Champ Clark to democratic
leaders at the Baltimore conference,
following upon the somewhat satri-
jcal summoning up of the political sit
uation by Colonel Henry Watterson
prior to his departure for Europe, is
a good thing for all democrats to
take to heart, says the state regis
ter. It should especially appeal to
the democratic members of congress
at this time, when they have the op
portunity of years for the vindica
tion of sound party principles and
the shaping of valuable legislation.
Mr. Clark points out the fact that
the result of the recent election
which gave the democrats a major
ity of the members of the house was
not so much a victory for the dem- j
ocrats as it was a defeat for the re- j
publicans. "Really." he said, "we i
are in a state of probation. The J
country nas conciudea to give us
another chance to demonstrate our
fitness to conduct the government
rying out religiously the promises
we made in Nevember." Then he
points out the wreck of the repuW-
Hcan party as an Instance of the ven-
with the democrats is that they have
been playing politics like children
for 20 years and that Cleveland and
' Bryan played politics like children
but in different ways. He also de
clared that the party had come back
into power without coherence or pre
paration. There may be some truth in the
strictures of Colonel Watterson.
There certainly is hard sense in the
statements of Mr. Clark.
If Mr. Clark in his capacity as
speaker of the next house of repre-
sentatives shall wisely use the power !
conferred uoon him to preserve the!
jthe accomplishment of the things !
which he and other good democrats
ardently desire to be done. The
speaker of the house should be a
strong, self-reliant, and above all. a
diplomatic man. There Is a golden
opportunity for Speaker Clark as
well as for the members of congress.
The democrats believe that Champ
Clark is a great, fearless and able
democrat, that he is the ideal man
for speaker of the national house,
and that he is a presidential possi-

"After me?" Doxie's face radiated
with a strange glow; "Did Lucy name
her little girl after me?"
"Yes," snapped grandmother sternly.
" 'Twas the least she might do after

Lucy wanted to marry Jim Turrell,
but he didn't care for her, so she got
around Howard and married him for

it so be couldn't get out of it, and

"How did you know ?"
"It came direct from Lucy herself,"
returned Mrs. Turner with dignity.
Doxie opened the stove door and
looked at the fire. The red glow shone
on hey sweet face and discovered her
blue eyes wet with tears.
"Something else I never told you,
Doxie," resumed Mrs. Turner, knitting
busily. "Before noward married Lucy
Moore he came here and told me all
about it. He said he knew it looked
as if he was a coward and a villain,
and he asked me what do do. He said
he didn't like anybody but you and
he'd neycr be happy if he married any

her. and she said she'd rather marry
him even if he didn't love her a bit.
and so he did. Doxie Turner, Howard

"I'll cook you a poached egg, grand

ious pension bills now pending before
on. i. kite nn. i, not I'orn.An.
The measure known as the Gillette
bill is said to have the Indorsement
of the president, but it is unpopular
with the average employe because
it is not a straight civil pension in any
sense of the word, but a plan under
which the government proposes "to
withhold a certain percentage of the
wages of civil services employes" until
they reach the age of retirement. It
is in effect a compulsory savings ac
count, compound interest being allow- j
ed. Owing to increased cost of living,
many employes declare this plan wouid
work out a severe hardship.
The amended Goulden bill provides
that employes who have served the
government at least 30 years and shall
have attained the age of CO years, shall
receive 50 per cent of the average j
annual salary received for the five1
years preceding retirement; that em-j
ployes who have served from 23 to 39 j
years, and shall have attained the
age of C2 years, shall receive 45 per;
cent of salary; that employes who
have served from 20 to 25 years, and
shall have attained the age of C5:
years may be pensioned with 40 per:
cent of previous salary. No employes I
provided for in the act shall be retain- j
ed ln the service after arriving at the i
age of 70 years. The payments are!
to be paid quarterly throughout th life j
of the employe.

Section 5 of the Goulden bill pro- i
vides that any employe who has served j
not less than five years, and who, by j
reason of accident or illness not duel
