Hughes is homeward bound after having stumped the west in the Interest of his candidacy for president of the United States. And Charles E. Hughes is coming home to an awful setback for his hopes if he entertains any idea that his tour has made an impression upon the country (Mich as would brighten his chances for election. The candidate en route is quite likely to. become very optimistic over his chances. Big crowds greet him everywhere, but not because they are going to vote for him. These crowds turn out to get a look at a big man — at a mar. who made such a magnificent record as governor of New York, and at a man who held the im portant place of justice in the country s highest court, and at a man whose silence prior to his nomination for the first office in the land was a rare bit of eloquence. There is always a crowd out to hear him at his meetings. There are always enough of the faith ful pie hunters to pack a hall in any town. And there are always plenty of words of encouragement for the candidate. For identically the same reason that Hufhie Jennings stands hopping around down by third base, telling the batter Who has just struck at the ball for the Second time and missed it, to “never mind that, old man,” while at the point in fact of asking waivers on “old man,’ the district leaders get around the can didate and tell him he is going to walk in. The candidate mustn’t lose heart for a moment, because if he did. the jig would be up, and then—then what would become of the jobs? So they get around him and tell him that sentiment here and sentiment then is all in his favor. And it works, usually, just like a shot of dope works on a race horse. But, as we said. Hughes is now on the homeward lap. He has been/met by the curious, cheer ad by the faitnful and jollied by the dis trict leaders looking forward to a future residence in Washington in the pay of Uncle Sam. He is coming home to drop to a disap pointment when he meets the leaders of his party and asks them what they think of him as a “stumper.” If they tell him exactly what, right down in their hearts, they honestly be lieve to be the truth, they will tell him that he failed to make a hit. They will go further and tell him, if It is not their purpose to deceive him, but to be frank with him, that the stumping tour was a decided'frost—in fact, a kill ing frost. Fine man; fine character; eminently qualified for the office; big; brainy; clean and all that, but running in an impos aible year. The apathy proves it. There Is More To the Preparedness Bills Than Glory For the Party Both Republican and Democratic sj»ell binders are going to claim, for their par ticular party, credit for the national de fense program which President Wilson will probably inaugurate with his signa ture within a week. Fact is thst Democratic House leader Kitchin opposed and Republican House Leader Mann supported) the measure, Kitchin being a leader who couldn’t lead. Uu* credit of the minority party in the house it may be said that the prepar edness measure was not made a partisan issue, but the political advantage, what ever there may be of it, will go to the Democratic congress and president. But the people at large will let the spellbinders quarrel over the political glory, very largely, and wisely study two very unusual and important features of the measure, features in which are in volved decidedly progressive principles or policies, to-wit: The measure provides $11,000,01" for a government armor plant. The government has long boon cheated and gouged by an armor plate trust. Under legislation, as permitted by the United States supreme court. 1 nc.e Sam ha< utterly failed to kill trusts. He will now try competition. It is a tremendous entering wedge. There is also on the program $20,000,- >OO for a government plant to produce ; nitrate. Heretofore Uncle Sam has Veer, at the mercy of fore:gn countries in the matter of this all-important ingredient of war munitions. He could raise men. money and grans in plenty but was apt. at any time, to be without powder for hi> guns, a silly and dangerous fix f r any great nation. But, greater and better than plenty of gunpowder is the probability that, in times of peace. Uncle's nitrate plant will be turning out great quantities of nitrate for fertilizers. ; It is the life-taking quality in nitrate ;that most strongly impresses us in these times, when our brothers across the water are slaughtering each other, but, later on. there will be no gardener, no florist no orchardist. no farmer who will not bless Uncle Sam for cheap fertilizer, through the cheap life-giver, nitrate. Another tremendous wedge, this time driven into the foreign cinch, and, at the same time, a godsend to all those who produce and all those who consume food. Government competition! Study it well! It brings down domestic and foreign birds of prey at tremendously long range —if the U. S. supreme court doesn’t find some excuse for declaring it “unreason able.” Read Both Sides Th** Pullman Cos informa u*. an®nt our recent j outburst about riding in up7**r berths »ft*r pay ing for lon-f-r.

My Maryland BY DR. FRANK CRANE (Copyright, 1916, by Krunk Crane) Tht i growth of the collective conscious ness of the race is marked by its songs. At first we sing “a little song of me and thee," the love song. Expanding a hit we are able to roar in the chorus which celebrates the virtues of "The Highlanders," or "The Men of Harlech,” tr "Old Amherst,” or some other local <roup. Widening still more in our group ippreciation we sing “Deutschland Ueber AIKm,“ or “Britons Never Shall Be Slaves," or “Columbia, the Gem of the )cean," or "The Marseillaise." Shall we ever get to singing about Hu manity ? The nearest we come to it at present is in certain Socialist hymns, and in the Missionary songs of the Christian church. In fact, 1 suspect that future histo rians will credit Christian missions with ioing no inconsiderable part in develop ing that world passion which we will have to possess before we can success fully have a world federation. it’s queer how our sentiment lags be hind our intelligence. We already have practical, operative internationalism in almost every line of human endeavor; commerce is international, and art. let ters. and >cience, even capital, is passing over national l>oundaries. and labor is distinctly world wide in its feeling. But we can’t sing it yet. And that’s the trouble. We never really mean a thing until we can sing it. The narrower the sentiment of a song the stronger it burns and the deeper it Kites. lMd you ever notive how "Dixie" lias much rm>re rousem* nt in it than "My Country, ’Tis of Thee"? During the civil \wir James R. Randall got excited over the Massachusetts troops passing through Baltimore, and in the heat of his indignation wrote "Maryland, My Maryland,” which, set to the German tune of "Tannenbaum, < > Tannenbaum,” known t<* all American college boys as the tune to Lauriger 11*>ratins, became fa mous. It still grips. The passion haa outlived the subject. The* '*ate feeling that in spired it was swept away by the merging of the south, at the of the war, into the larger national consciousness. But somehow “Maryland, My Maryland," although we never lived there, and it means no more to us than North Dakota >r Pike County, or Township 5, Range 3, East, warms up our hearts. Also, show ing tht* strange ways of feel ing why does this Maryland song send the shivers down my spine and make me want to wave my hat, while "Illinois, Illi nois" has never got under my skin, and I came from Illinois, and love Illinois folk as "i'!l as the next rmin. Why does that "Illinois, Illinois” song, even though set to the strain of "Baby Mine,” and even though sung by a hundred banqueters, led by the sonorous baritone of Governor Yates- why does it somehow fall short? The life and success of a song is as mvsteriously and undeniably in the set ret hands of tht* gods as the life and success of a man.
