There appears to he no end to the
complications which rise from the
motion-picture innovation, an innova
tion which is world-wide In its extent
and far reaching in its influence. Due
recognition has been given to the ed
ucational value of the movies. But
one of the dangers which we must
recognize is that the education will he
along harmful lines unless we watch
closely the character and the quality
of the pictures. For example, a re
cent cable dispatch from Amsterdam
told how the people of that city are
dumfounded by the eagerness with
which their youngsters flock to see
the motion pictures and are alarmed
by the readiness with which the boys
acquire the habit of purloining the
coin necessary to secure their admit
tance to the shows. But what shocks
the Dutch most is the applause which
their juveniles accord to scenes de
picting crimes.
But the patrons and bystanders are
not the only ones subjected to danger.
At St. Augustine, Fla., a Bengal tiger
that had been helping to give inter
est to moving picture films nearly
killed one of the human actors. The
latter was playing his part in the
water when the tiger leaped upon him
and clawed his back. Any way we
look at this, it is unpleasant. Be
ing clawed by a tiger is too much
when that experience is added to the
hard working moving licture actor's
other perils and privations.
The moving picture has become
man's most popular toy and his fa
vorite medium of instruction. tHe is
spending lots of money on it and hav
ing lots of fun with it and doing more
or less damage by means of it in
places where the better judgment of
the community does not suffice to re
strain the misguided impresario.
Doubtless in time Amsterdam and
other well meaning cities will insist
upon the display only of pictures
that will not inspire little children
to theft and other misdeeds. Fur
ther, some methods will have to Ie
devised to adjudicate the differences
between the Bengal tigers and tlhe
human actors In the melodramas.

Since the republican national committee recently demon
strated to the nation the fact that its party is yet under the
control of the old gang of bosses, the people have awakened
to an appreciation of the false note which those men have
sounded who have told us that the republican party is pro
gressive. Barnes and Root and the rest of them answered
the Cummins claim and, before they got through,.they had
s Borah voting with them. Since that answer was given,
there has been little talk of the proposition of "amalgama
tion." That seems to have been pretty effectually
squelched. And now the country is asking itself what is
going to happen. Since the progressive party was organ
° ized, there has been frequent reference to the parallel in
its history and the history of the early days of the repub
lican party. We have not seen this parallel more clearly
drawn than it is in these paragraphs from the Cincinnati
From Maine to California the progressive party leaders are prepar
ing for a campaign this fall that will compare, as far as political condi
tion: are concerned, with that of 1854, when the republican party estab
lished its solid foundation.
r With the defeat of General Scott in 1852 it was plain to all save
e some blind partisans, that the end of the whig party, as a political force,
was gone forever.
The year 1848 had shown the strength of the free soil element in the
democratic party, and the new issues being discussed throughout the
northern states had contributed to the sloughing off of votes which had
caused the defeat of Scott.
The republicans in 1854 had not nearly such an organization to
make their fight with as have the p rogressive3 in 1914, and yet, with
their capture of whig and free soil democratic voters in 1856 they
formed the political wedge which split the democratic party in two,
ended the whig party and gave them the country in 1860.
The progressives in 1912 accomplished more in one campaign than
the founders of the republican party were able to effect in the years
from 1854 to 1858.
In that campaign of 1912, from June to November, the party formed.
organized, drew to itself the greater part of the republican party, proved
itself the second party of the nation in voting strength and astonished
tihe democratic managers, while it paralyzed those of the republican
It was the most remarkable movement in the political history of
any republic in its rapid rise and national progress, for never before,
under any political banner, have 4,000,000 of intelligent voters been
rallied to a new standard in thy: short time of four months.
Month after month, since the announcement of the progressive suc
cess in attaining second place as a political party in the United States,
those who remained in the republican camp have been studying the
progressive catechism, adapting its teachings to their revised faith,
and, while they have none of the name, many are willing to stand for
the progressive doctrines.
It is a most difficult task to bring up a party, defeated as badly as
was the republican party in 1912, to meet two strong and vigorous op
ponents such as the democratic and progressive parties have proved
themselves to be.
The old wheel horses of the whig party after 1852 did their utmost
to preserve their organization.
They could not believe that tile party of Adams, Clay, Webster,
William Henry Harrison and Winfield Scott would cease to exist, and
while the young, ambitious, vigorous men of their own old party joined
with the free soil democrats and swept forward to victory after victory
the disconsolate and despairing whig party faded away forever.
So the news from Maine, Vermont, Masachusetts, Minnesota, Illi
nois, Ohio, Indiana. Michigan, ('alifornia and other states as to pro
gressive organization hears much resemblance to that of the republican
organization in 1854, when it administered upon the whig estate and
prepared to put the democratic party into bankruptcy in 1860.
It will ring loud and clear in the next campaign when progressive
leaders ask their democratic and republican opponents what portions of
the progressive creed they are prepared to oppose and antagonize.
That the progressives will ask that question is certain.
In fact, they are asking it now. They are asking it in the
hope that they will receive a direct answer. Up to date
they have received only evasive replies. But the lines are
being drawn and the battle front will take more and more
definite shape during the coming months. -A. L. S.

Some time ago we made mention of
an elevator boy who reads high-brow
literature. The pluck of this young
fellow was described in a spirit of
admiration. By an indirect route he
has reached us with the request that
this selection from "The Melting Pot"
be published for the benefit of local
readers. It follows:
"Jack and I were comrades. Jack
never tried to gouge me, never thought
for an instant but that I had as goodl'
right to live on this earth as he had.
"He never took advantage of any
one. He was kind and affectionate
to all. Jack never looked at the
clothes you wore, or at the station in
life you assumed. All men and wom
en were just humans to Jack and he
loved them all, And little children
these he fairly worshiped.
"Jacl was never cankered with the
desire of piling up riches. The lust
of plunder and profit never seized
Jack. He never tried to torture in
nocent children with frightful visions
of endless torment; he never twisted
their brain with impossible creeds.
Jack was too near to nature and too
good for that. Jack belonged to that
splendid breed that has faithfully trod
side by side with man the long track
from the jungle to the civilization of
today. His forbears were they who
watched all night by the camp fire,
when the world was young while the
master slept. A great and glorious
record flowed in the blood of Jack's
veins, and the story of man and his
struggles along the dreary journey
out of the forest and out of the cave
cannot be written and leave Jack and
his race out.
Somnebody poisoned Jack. Some
creature that a social system of war
and hate had inflamed with the mad
lust of killing, took Jack's life just as
wantonly as the master class takes the
lives of the workers. I will miss Jack
just because he loved me, and because
he thought I had as good right to live
as he. Sometimes I feel as the Good

Are so placid and self-contained.

years ago.'
"Such was Jack."

New York, Jan. 19.-R. AV. Sherman,
former democratic mtyor of Uitica and
brother :of the late Vice President
James S. Sherman, threatened James
W. Johnson, a state highway contrac
tar of Utica, that if he did not con
tribute to the democratic party he
would get no accommodations at Al
bany, according to Johnson's testi
mony today at District Attorney
Whitman's John Doe investigation into
state highway graft.
Johnson said he declined to con
tribute and that final payment of
$3,257 on a state road contract he had
completed was held up by the state
highway department for nine months.
Forner Mayor Sherman approached
him in regard to contributing just be
fore the election of 1911, Johnson said.
Daniel L. Mott, another Utica con
tractor, testified that he was solicited
in 1912 by somebody who said he rep
resented Everett P. Fowler, the so
called Tammany "bagman." He, too,
declined to contribute and pay on his
contract was held up from November,
1912, to June, 1913.(
Mott testified also that in 1911,
after he had declined to go to Syra
cuse to see Fowler he was unable for
two months to get the state highway
department to sign a contract for road
work on which he was the lowest bid
der. In the meantime, he said, he
was solicited by the McGulre com
pany of Syracuse and by Charles F.
Murphy, Jr., nephew of Charles F.
Murphy, leader of Tammany Hall, for
the bonding of his contract. They
wrote letters first, he said, and then
sent telegrams, but he declined to give
them the business.
"Murphy said in his last telegram,"
testified the witness, "that if I'd say
the word he'd see that I got m.y con
tract signed that day."

Richmond, Pa. - " When I started
taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound I was in a
dreadfully rundown
state of health,
had internal trou
bles, and was so ex
tremely nervous and
prostrated that if I
had given in to y
feelings I wold
have been in bed.
i As it was I had
hardly strength at
times to be on my
feet and what I did do was by a great
effort. I could not sleep at night and
of course felt very bad in the morning,
and had a steady headache.
"After taking the second bottle I no
ticed that the headache was not so bad,
1 rested better, and my nerves were
stronger. I continued its use until it
made a new woman of me, and now I
can hardly realize that I am able to do
so much as I do. Whenever I know any
