What percentage of the census sta tistics will be valueless because of the great American proneness to boast? We wish someone would figure this out and give us a formula which, when applied to the government reports, will permit the student to arrive it exact facts, says Toledo Blade. Con sider some of these questions: How old are you? It is the custom to joke sibaut the objection of women to sta ting their age. If the truth were known it would probably be found that most men will subtract a few years, par ticularly if they themselves are shift ing into that period known as middle aged. Are you single or married? Old maids who have not ceased to struggle, as the Georgians express it, may let imagination rule them if the enumerators are strangers, and there are men who will "decline to answer on the advice of attorney." What is your occupation? The temptation to let fancy sweep skyward will be great, indeed, to Americans. Are you em ployed or employer? That weakness for boasting will get the better of thousands at this point. Do you own or rent your home? Desire may give the answer. Any mortgage? It is un pleasant to talk about things of this sort. How easy to say no, lest the next question be, how much? The importance of the farm in the life and industry of the nation is being again fully recognized. It is the one industry that is not struck down by panic or financial stringency, says New Orleans Times-Democrat. Mills may close and factories suspend, mines may cease to operate when the money market is demoralized and the de mand for their output declines; but through good times and bad the farm er is at work, for we always need his products. These facts are perhaps better recognized to-day than ever be fore, as we now see that it was through its farm products through the surplus of the crops sold in Europe, and which fed and clothed the people of that continent, that the United States was able to recover from the depression of 1907 in so short a time. It is, therefore, specially gratifying on this occasion to see the tribute paid the south as the agricultural cen ter and hope of the country, its pro tection against demoralization and business depression. Throughout the country men con victed of "black hand" crimes are receiving exemplary punishment. Which is quite as it should be. The offense is most cowardly, cruel and detestable. It is evident that the au thorities and the courts perceive the necessity of dealing sternly with the perpetrators, and in this they are backed by public opinion. By using the law effectively the "black hand" business, which is a very undesirable importation, can be suppressed and those who come to this country to bet ter themselves may learn that It can not be done by such abhorrent meth ods. An Idaho judge s'artled the divorce colony there by refusing a divorce to a wealthy applicant on the grounds that the said applicant was not a bona fide resident and that there was no leason for the divorce. It may have been observed before that there is nothing so startling and so immediate ly effective as an injunction of com mon sense into the law. One theorist of the situation says that living is costly because women are poor cooks, and another blames the women for high prices because they are too lazy togo to market, but order their provisions through the tel cphone. The sons of Adam are still finding his excuse good enough for them. The British public are wildly enthu siastic over speculation in rubber bonds. Securities like these ought to help along the cause of elastic cur rency, but perhaps the speculators will find that the boomers of the bonds have stretched a point. FOR SQUARE DEAL LOYALTY TO THE PRESIDENT IS THE DEMAND. Independent Magazine Sums Up the Situation with a Forceful Pre sentation of the Political Po sition as It Exists. An editorial in The World To-Day bears the above caption, and says: "The difficulties which lie in a suc cession to any popular hero are ob vious. President Taft followed the most universally popular man Amer ica ever knew. Different in tempera ment, he Inherited issues which his predecessor had precipitated and a congrt ss which was only too ready to taete the sweets of independence after six years of discipline. The great financial interests looked to him for a 'safe' administration; people at large looked to him for a maintenance of Rooseveltism. lie had no political organization other than that of the Republican party itself, and this or ganization was already plotting re bellion against the policies on which the people had supposed they had de livered a final verdict. Such difficul ties required for their solution some thing more than a Judicial tempera ment, a sunny smile, and a member ship in the corporation of Yale. And we believe that be will yet show him self to possess such needed abilities. "To condemn Mr. Taft for falling to be like Mr. Roosevelt is akin to the ridiculous. Nobody can be like Mr. Roosevelt. "To claim that the present adminis tration is runuing contrary to the Roosevelt policies is equally unjust. It always takes time for a new admin istration to develop its own individual ity. . . . The difficulty with Mr. Taft's administration is that it is ut terly lacking in a magnetic person ality on the one side and a political manager on the other. But the Amer ican people ought not to pass judg ment on his administration because of the lack of two such essentials. It is unfair to expect him to do in his first year what his predecessor did not do until his fourth. "The president deserves a square deal." President's Good Record. Who would deny President Taft the conciliation and the caution, the prog ress and power he has brought into public life? Who would deny the effi ciency of the man who has been the prime mover in every sane and pro gressive proposal that has been ad vanced during the past year? He has Issued no philippic. He has not dealt in pronunciamentos or I'roadsides. He lias spoken rarely, but wisely and simply and to the point. In view of the year that is past the nation sa lutes Mr. Taft and congratulates him upon a first-year record that is open, clean and satisfactory . Baltimore American. Progress Under New Tariff Law. The railroad car building companies hare lately been swamped by orders and the indications are that when construction figures for 1910 have been compiled it will be seen that this was the banner year. Unless the managers of the big roads are all wrong in their deductions, the country is fast ap proaching a period that may be the high-water mark of business in the United States. At any rate the rail roads are seeing a future that should be disconcerting to those who pre dicted that the new tariff law would prevent commerce swelling to the pro portions now indicated. Brooklyn Standard-Union. The Trusts and the Party. The people get many wrong Ideas from the newspapers. They are made to think by the Democratic newspa pers that the tariff makes the trusts, and that because the Republican presi dent and the majority of Republicans favor the tariff, that must mean that they also favor trusts and corpora tions. The truth is the Republican party is the only party that ever pros ecuted a trust or corporation, and every Republican believes in punish ing every trust and corporation that does wrong—Hiawatha (Kan.) World. Outlook Is Splendid.

MUST AMEND THE SECTION Congress Should Get Busy at Once to Settle Status of the Anti- Trust Act. A special dispatch from Washington, speaking of the waiting attitude of the legislative branch toward the test of the anti-trust act pending in the Su preme court, affirms an unwillingness on the part of congress to enact new regulations until present laws "have been tested and run the gauntlet of the Supreme court." That rule of action may or may not be a commendable one. It depends on the character of the legislative propo sitions But there is one possible amendment which the stated rule of conduct very evidently calls for. That Is an amendment to the so-called "com modities clause," forbidding railroads engaged in interstate commerce to own or control directly or indirectly the 'freight transported over their lines. This provision has been tested and defined up to and by the United States Supreme court. The only real ques tion concerning it at the time of its passage was whether such a provision did not transgress beyond the boun dary lines between national and state jurisdiction. The Supreme court has decided that congress has that power as an essential part of the regulation of interstate commerce. Having thus sustained the constitutionality of the provision the court proceeded to take the starch out of it by construing it to mean that it does not forbid railroads to own stock in corporations produ cing or owning and shipping freight over their lines. The power being thus plainly affirm ed but the provision itself being emas culated in construction the onus is upon congress to amend the section so as to leave no doubt of the prohi bition of stock ownership as a means of controlling shipments. Why such an amendment is not promptly enacted is something that congressmen may find difficult to explain. Corporations Making Returns. Approximately 300,000 corporations amenable to the law imposing a tax of one per cent, of their net incomes above $5,000 have made returns to the internal revenue bureau. Additional returns are expected to swell the num ber to 325,000. which will be in keep ing with the estimate made by the officials before the law becomes op erative. There are 409,000 corpora tions listed in the United States, but a large number have for some time been generally regarded as "dead" and existing in name only. It is now generally believed from the reports of collectors thus far at hand that the estimate of $25,000,000 revenue from the corporation tax this year may be exceeded slightly. Good Plan of Campaign, It Is proposed to conduct the Re publican campaign next, fall in con gressional districts on the line of de fending the course of the majority in cooperating with the president. It is a sound policy. If the administration cannot be defended on that line it can not be defended at all. It will do the O. O. P. good to make a campaign on resolute principles like that. The av erage man tires of mush-and-milk poli cies.— Buffalo News. Needs New Blood. The country will be the better for a good crop of Democratic possibilities. It has suffered from a shrinkage of late years, and we hope to see a large assortment of favorite sons before the convention meets.

Not everything that is written In the Democratic platform is Demo cratic. Free silver is not Democratic, centralization of power at Washington is not Democratic, Populism is not Democracy. Richmond Times-Dis patch. Why didn't the last Democratic na tional convention employ some com petent authority on Democracy to pre pare a genuine Democratic platform? Democratic "Principles." The way the Democrats remember the platform is illuminating. One vote only was cast for the postal savings bank bill by representation of that party In the senate. Evidently their "principles" are not binding—lf they lose.—Cincinnati Commercial-Tribune. Democratic Back-Down. In spite of the pledge of the Demo cratic platform, only one Democrat in the United States senate voted for the postal savings bank bill.

At the feast he carved the great bird with much satisfaction, until his knife struck a bunch of shot. The next day Gustavus was halec to the judge's oflice. "Gus, you black rascal," said the Irate judge, "I ordered you to fetch me a tame turkey; you brought me a wild one. Don't deny it; here are the shot from it; now, what have you got to say?" The colored gen'man shuffled and twisted' his cap, then he grinned sheepishly, and explained: "The fac' am, suh, confidential. The fsc' am this—them shot were inten tioned for muh. Ha! ha! ha! ha!" — Circle. Looking Ahead. Josephine, aged ten, has a decided lisp. She also is very fond of attend ing the matinee.

"My mamma says it isn't good for lit tie girls togo to the theater," said Marion with an air of self-righteous uess, "I'm not ever going till I'm IS." "Humph," retorted Josephine with out any hesitation, "th pose you die when you're theventeen, then you'll be thtung!"—Woman's Companion. An Inward Conviction. Tommy, having disposed of three helpings of sausages and doughnuts sat mournfully regarding his empty plate.
