Governor Fifer's going out of powr
if as graceful as his defeiiwas sensational
But then Governor Fifer always was a
graceful man. That fact was woikad for
all there was in it to bolster up bis can
didacy ..during the campaign, if we re
member rightly. But there was not
enough in the single characteristic to re
elect him governor.
now amusing, indceJ, it is to note the
labored efforts on the part of the Union
to lay the delay in public building oper
tions throughout the c oaatry to the door
of the democratic house of congTCS3. A
few mornings ego it preseuted an article
to that effect and in the patce cnntiection
ackoowle gid that the Columt ian build
ings at Chicago had completely overs
taxed the capacity of the working forces
in the office of the supervising architect.
Now this morning it publishes a letter
written by Congressman Henderson in
reply to one from Congressman Gest, in a
preface to which the Uoion setks in a
cowardly indirect manner to rtflacton
Congressman Cable in assuming that the
delay at Rock Island las been due to
his negligence. In the same letter, how
ever. Congressman Henderson saya he
was informed it hhd not been very long
since the site was j.urchascd here. He
did not tee the supervising architect, he
says, but "some one acting for him
and told bim he would have to hurry
them up a little, as he had represented
the Hock Island district e'gtit years in
congress and was always ready to do any
thing he could for it, etc." Congressman
Henderson has represented the Rock Isl
and district in ml but ic name for the last
four years preceding the present term of
congress. He it is we are In thank for
work on the canal, and other public
ma'ters in which we are interested, and it
is perhaps nttural that Mr. G9t should
look to him now, but Rock Inland bas a
competent and wideawane congressman

flection upon him can injure him one
Democracy In Illinois.
St. Louis Bepnbllc.
Whether Illinois will remain demo
cratic will depend largely on the action
of the legislature just beginning its ses
sion at Springfield. We may assume,
we think, that tvery direct pledge will be
rigidly kept; that the obnrxious leglsla
tion for which the republican party was
driven from power will be at once re
pealed, and that everything possible will
be done to harmonize cot flic ting claims
But tven when this is done, a
great deal remains to be done if Illinois
is to remain a democratic state. Every
act of legislation must be governed by
the spirit of the democracy that is wilK
ing to trust the peof b, speaking through
the majority, and. more than this, is will
ing to trust each man of the million with
all the liberty he does not necessarily
surrender to government that the peace
may be kept.
Illinois has long been subjected to a
vicioui paternalism which bas assumed
that the people are not able to take care
of tnemselves, and that it is necessary to
oppress them for their own good lest by
their ignorance and inexperience they
should be led Into tolly. This theory, as
it has been illustrated in Illinois, has
meant help only for the powerful and op
pression for the weak. The statutes
passed during the long period of republi
can ascendency are tainted with a dis
trust of freedom and of those among the
people who have neither money nor po
sition to force respect for their runts.
Ir, in contrast to this, the democrats
make the democratic belief in freedom
the guiding principle of every act of leg
islation, there will never be a lack of such
winnine issues as that on which tbev
have just ctrrled the state.
Wbe her the question is one of taxa
tion, or of school management, or what
not, the issue between the two parties is
always the same. One wishes more, the
other less freedom for the people. Dem
ocrats have learned long ago that the best
government go, ems least; that in the
long run thai government will be most
satisfactory to the people that lets the
people alone as much as possible. Such
a government will be popular in Illinois,
and by fearlessly inaugurating it the
democrats will make sure of a long lease
of power in Illinois.

The world it w ill lost when the world ia wrong,
No ta&UepUi w men may deride you.
For if yon are mtient and firm and strong
You will Cud ia time, though the time be long,
That the world wheels round beside yon.
If yon dare to na.il Qrst o'er a new thought
For awhile it will scourge and score you:
Then, coming i. breast with a skillful tack.
It will clasp your hand and slap your back.
And vow it as there before you.
Aye, many an error the old world makes
And many a deepy blunder:
But ever and a ways at last it wakes

The celebra'ed Ftibius .Maximns, whose
life was characterized by "greatness of
mind, unalter ible courage and invincible
character," w is derisively styled in boy
hood "the litt.e sheep." His siowness and
difficulty in learning were so .ureal that he
was looked upon by all his preceptors as
"incorrigibly stupid." John Howard, the
philanthropist, was another illustrious
dunce, "learning ncthius; in seven years."
As a boy JCarx leou was esteemed at best a

grim taciturnity and love of seclusion.

,A Parisian Writer.
The woman's movement is making great
strides in modern France, notwithstanding
that a great deal of ridicule is cast upon
it. Mie. Cheliga-Loevy, although not a
Frenchwoman by birth, started the pres
ent movement, and she works unceasingly
to ameliorate the lot of her poor sisters
under the existing laws and regulations.
She is the president of the International
Union of Women, which has its headquai

who is an artist, in a fiat in the old quarter
The only daughter of a wealthy Polish
nobleman, she learned when a child to
speak and write French fluently. At the
age of sixteen she wrote and published her
first novel. About ten years ago she set
tled in Paris, and while there met and
married her husband, who shares all her
ideas, moral, political and social. It was
not until after the congress in 18S9 that
Mme. Cheliga-Loevy made up her mind to
found the Union Universelle des Femmes,
which won the approval of Simon and
Renan. In connection with this associa
tion she started The Bulletin des Femmes,
a tiny magazine devoted to all that con
cerns women's work.
She acts as correspondent of a number of
foreign periodicals and has at times lec
tured. She claims absolute equality with
men, neither more nor less, and is by con
viction a socialist. Her mode of life makes
it almost impossible for her to go much
into society, but she is to be met occasion
ally in literary and political circles. Chi
The College Athlete.
It is a debatable question whether it is
wholesome for a college youth to wiu the
amount of attention aud applause that
falls to the lot of a successful athlete, see
ing that he must soon leave college and be
gin professional or business life at the bot
tom of the ladder, where for a time at
least obscurity w ill take the place of fame.
No doubt it Is a great "slump." But there
are several things to lie considered before
deciding that such an xperience is nu
wholesome. All, or a great ileal, depends on what
sort of a youth he is. If his head is so soft
that the smiles and hand dapping of pret
ty girls who watch the finish of a boat race
or the wind up of a football game can turn
that head; if soil conceit is so large a share
of his natural makeup that he cannot be
carried on the shoulders of his classmates
without thinking himself entitled by di
vine right to ride on other men's shoulders
all the way ihror.:;h life, then very likely
athletic eminence will spoii him; but it
may be that it does not much matter, since
he would be sure to be spoiled in one way
or another, there Itcii.g so little of him to
spoil, and that little such poor stuff.
Otherwise it is f.-.irto reason that in this,
as iu so many other things, a college is but
a miniature world, and he is best iltte.l for
