Of the people. Teddy Roosevelt started
life in tlrs rede and posed in many
high place-, as a purist ?a chevalier
Bayard, "sans pure ot sans reproach."
Then he evoluted into a soldier and
rutV rider, then a politician. As candi
date for Vice President ho Indulged a
wicked tongue, laying many sins at the
door of Ills neighbor, the Ma'or of
New York, who is a democrat. As Gov
ernor of New York, be could remove
the Mayor for his malfeasance, but
Teddy let his little member run riot in
abuse. It is said now that all the
while Teddy, heir apparent to the
throne, was chattering on the stump
about the Mayor s sins, he had in his
pocket documents vindicating the Inno
cence of Mayor Van Wyek. Now, that
Teddy should have it wicked tongue in
his head and have little regard for tho
Christian virtue of dealing fairly with a
neighbor is neither strange or unus
ual, but the danger lies in the discre
dit his example lends to bring on
all that (lass whose vocation is to
cleanse and purify the earth.
There is duscussion proceediug in
the State Press upon the propriety of
giving the election of Judges to the
people and taking it away from the
representatives. We are decidedly of
the opinion that partisan views ought
not to have overshadowing control in
the selection of Judicial officials. For
this reason probably it would be best
to turn the matter over to the people.
You may .-tumble i u a hundred inde
pendent voters, bul the representative
rarely has the courage of his convic
tions political Interest and hopes sway
ing bis action, i hen lawyers are con
stantly under the eve of a wide cou
stltutency, while legislators have
mesg-o opportunity to judge of their
fitness Both pi na are in vogue In
the Statt s of the Union and little com
plaint is heard from any quarter. Pre
eminent talent is randy round in nny
calling and rarely is a Soul to be found
in the Judiciary. The experiment of
g'ving the election of Judges to the
people can be -nfely made since the
constitution of 1805.
The text runs: Remove not the land
marks which thy fathers have set up.
Jefferson and IVladlson make them to
read a low tar 11'or tariff for revenue
only, States rights and a strict con
struction of the constitution. These
have been tampered with, but tho
scars remain, the lines can be found,
and to these the Democrats must stand
or stand outside in the cold. "No man
can tothe time or tide," and events
must largely .shape ibemsolvOS, but
every question or issue must be re
solved to first principles. The minority

Mow sad for tho fond parents and

efforts, by loving tender hands una

one hope. Hint to Him who said: "Suf

nature almost falters when the Ideal

depressed spirit overshadow tho fond
parents, even though they never mis
trust the one that has plucked the dar

tho resurrection and the life."
Fond parents, we know it is hard,
very hard to give her up, but let ub
rest assured tliat while tho ways of
