The Argonauts Return to the Rising Sun.
It was mid-October. The two saddle horses and a team for carriage use had been shipped ahead. In the private car the little party was beginning its own journey eastward. From the rear plat form they had watched the tall figure of I'ncle Peter.Bines standing In the bright autumn sun. aloof from the band of ker chicf-waving friends, the droop of his head anc| shoulders showing the dejection he felt at seeing them go. He had re sisted all entreaties to accompany them. His last injunction to Percival had been to marry early. "I- know your stock and I know you." he said "and you got no call to be rangin' them pastures without a brand. You never was meant fur a maverick. Only don't let the first woman that comes ridin' herd get her iron on you. No man knows much about the critters, of course, but I've noticed a few things in my time. You pick one that's full-chested, that's got a fairish-sized nose, and that likes cats. The full chest means she's healthy, the nose means she ain't finicky, and likin' cats moans she's kind and honest and unselfish. Ever notice some women when a cat's around? They pretend to like 'em and say 'Nice Kitty!' but you can see they're viewin' 'em with bitter hate and suspicion. If they have to stroke 'em they do it plenty ging-erly and you can see em shudderln' inside like. It means they're catty themselves. But when one grabs a cat up as if she was goln' to eat it and cuddles it in her neck and talks baby-talk to it. you play her fur bein' sound and true. Pass up the others, son. "And speakin' of the fair sex," he added, as he and Percival were alone for a moment, "that entcrprisin' lady We set tled with is goin' to do one thing you'll approve of. "She's goin'." he continued', in answer to Pcrclval's look of inquiry, "to take her bank-roll to New York. She says it's the only place fur folks with money, jest like you say. She tells Coplen that there wa'n't any fit society out here at all, no advantages fur a lady of capacity and ambition*. I reckon she's goln' to be 403 all right.+. "Seems to me she did pretty well here 1 don't see any kicks due.her." "Yes, but she's like all the rest. The west was good enough to make her money in. but the east gets her when spendin' time comes." As the train started he swung himself off with a sad little "Be good to your- self." ^ "Thank the Lord we're under way at last!" cried Percival, fervently, when the group'at the station had been shut from view. "Isn't it just heavenly!" exclaimed his Sister. "Think of having all of New York you wantbeing at home thereand not having to look forward to this desolation of a place." Mrs. Bines was neither, depressed nor elated. She was maintaining that calm level of submission to fate which had been her lifelong habit. The journey and the .jpew^ /ifJe.Wjere they formed for her the line of least re sistance along which all energy mustflow. Had her children elected to camp for the remainder of their days in the center of the desert of Gobi, she would have faced that life with as little sense of personal concprn and with no more misgivings. Down out of the maze of hills the train wound and then by easy grades after two clays of travel down off the great plateau to where the plains of Nebraska lay away to a fair horizon in brown bil lows of withered grass. Then came the crossing of the sullen, sluggish Missouri, that highway of an an earlier day to the great northwest - and after that the better wooded and bet ter settled lands of Iowa and Illinois. "Now we're getting where Christians live." said Percival, with warm apprecia tion. "Why. Percival." exclaimed his moth er, reprovingly, "do you mean to say there aren't any Christians in Montana City? How you talk! There are lots of good Christian people there, tho T must say I have my doubts about that new 'Christian Science church they started last i spring." "The term. Mrs. Thornlike, was used in its social rather than its theological significance." replied her son. urbanely. "Far be it from me to impugn the religion of that community of which we are ceas ing to be integers at the pleasing rate of sixty miles an hour. God knows they need their faith in a different kind of land hereafter." And even Mrs. Bines was not without a sense of quiet and rest induced by the gentler contours of the landscape thru which they now sped. "The country here does seem a lot co- sier." she admitted. ' The hills rolled away amiably and reas suringly the wooded slopes in their gay coloring of autumn invited confidence. Here were no forbidding stretches of the gray alkali desert, no grim, bare moun tains, no solitude of .desolation. " It was a kind land, fat with riches. The shorn yellow fields, the capacious fed barns, the well-conditioned homes, alt-told eloquently of peace and plenty. So, too. did the vil lagesthose lively little clearing-houses for immense farming districts. To the adventurer from New York they seem al ways new and crude. To bur travelers from a newer, cruder region they were actually aesthetic in their suggestions of an old and well-established civilization. :to be-undertaken because HOSTETTER' S STOMAC H BITTER S Is entitled to the highest praise as a family medicine if you judga it by its merit and record of cures during the past fifty years.

I'd rather live in Montana City than Chicago," ventured Mrs. Bines. "Whatever pride you may feel In your discernment, Mrs. Cadwallader, is amply justified," replied her son, performing be fore the amazed lady a bow that'indicated: the lowest depths of slavish deference.. "I am now." he continued, "going out to pace the floor of this locomotive bou doir for a few exhilerating breaths of smoke, and pretend to myself that I've got to' live in Chicago for ever.. A little dis cipline like that is salutary to keep one from forgetting the great blessing which a merciful Providence has conferred upon, one." "I'll walk a bit with you," said his sis ter, donning her jacket and a cap. "Lest my remarks have seemed indeter minate, "madam." sternly continued Perci val at the door of the "car, "permit mc to add that if Chicago were heaven I should at once enter upon a life of crime. Do not affect to misunderstand me. I beg of you. I should leave no avenue of salvation open to my precious soul. I should incur no risk of being numbei'ed among the saved. I should be b-a-d, and I should sit up nights to invent new ways of evil. If X had any leisure left from being as wicked as I could be. I should devote it to teach ing those I loved how to become aban doned. I should doubtless issue a pamph let. 'How to Merit Perdition Without a Master. Learn to Be Wicked in Tour Own Home in Ten Lessons. Instructions Sent Securely Sealed from Observation. Thousands of Testimonials from the Most Accomplished Reprobates of the Day.' 1 trust Mrs. Llewellen Ijeffingwell-Thomp son, that you will never again so far for get yourself as to utter that wor 'Chi cago' in rry presence. If you feel that you must give way to the evil impulse, go off by yourself and utter. the name be hind the protection of closed doorswhere this innocent girl cannot hear you. Come, sister. Otherwise I may behave in a man ner to be regretted in my calmer mo ments. Let us leave the woman alone, now. Besides, I've got to go out and help the hands make up that New York train. You never can tell. Some horrible acci dent might happen to delay us here thirty minutes. Cheer up. ma it's always dark est just before leaving Chicago, you know." Thus flippantly do some of the younger sons of n en blaspheme this metropolis of the mid-westa city the creation of which is. by many persons of discrimina tion, held to be the chief romance and abiding miracle of the nineteenth cen tury. Let us rejoice that one such partlzan was now at hand to stem the torrent of abuse. As Percival held back the door for his sister to pass out. a stout little ruddy-faced man with trim gray side whiskers came quickly up the steps and barred their way with cheery aggressive ness. "Ah! Mr. Higbeewell, well!" ex claimed Percival. cordially. "Thought it might be some of you folks when I saw the car," said Hig-bee, shaking hands all around. "And Mrs. Bines, too! and the girl, look ing like a Delaware peach when the crop's 'failed.' Ho.v's everybody, and how long you going to be in the old town?" "Ah! we were just speaking of Chicago as you came in," said Percival, blandly. "Isn't she a great old town, thoa Won- der!" "My boy." said Higbee, in low. solemn tones that came straight from -his heart, "she gets greater every day you live. You can see her at it, fairly. How long since you been here?" "I came thru last June, you know, after I left your yacht at Newport." "Yes, yes to be sure so you didpoor Daniel J.but say, you wouldn't know the town now if you haven't seen it since then. Why, I run over from New York everv thirty days or so and she grows out of my ken every time, like a 5-year-old boy. Say, I've got Mrs. Higbe? up in the New York sleeper, but if you're going to be here a spell we'll stop a few days longer and I'll drive vou aroundwhat say?packing-housesxiake Shore DriveLincoln park" He waited, glowing confidently, as one submitting irresistible temptations. Percival beamed upon him with moist eyes. By Jove. Mr. Higbee! that's clever of youit's royal! Sis and I would like noth ing betterbut you see my poor mother here is almost down with nervous pros tration and we've got to hurry her to New York without an hour's, delay to consult specialist. We're afraid"he glanced anxiously at the astounded Mrs. Bines, and lowered his voice"we're afraid she may not be with us long." "Why* Percival.'" began Mrs. Bines, dazedly, "you was. just.saying--", "Now don't fly all to pieces, ma!take it easyyou're with friends, be sure of that. You needn't beg us to go on. You know we wouldn't think of stopping when it may mean life or death to you. You see just the way she is." he continued to the Sympathetic Hiigbeewe're afraid she may collapse any moment. So we must wait for another time but I'll tell you what you do go get Mrs. Higbee and your traps and come let-us put you up to New York. We've got lots of roomrun along nowand We'll have some of that ham, 'the kind you have always bought.' for lunch. A. L.- Jackson is a miserable cook, too, if I don't know the truth." Gently urging Higbee thru the door, he stifled a systematic inquiry Into the de tails of Mrs Bines' affliction. "Come along quick! I'll go help you and we'll have Mrs. Higbee back before the train starts." "Do you know," Mrs. Bines thoughtfully observed to her daughter, '1 sometimes mistrust Percival ain't just right In his head you remember_ he,did have a bad fall on it when he was two years and five months oldtwo years.' Ave months and eighteen days. The way lie carries on right before folks' faces! That time I went thru the asylum at Butte there was a young\man kept going on with! the same outlandish rigmarole just like Percival.

From The Journal Bureau, Room 45, Post Build ing, Washington. ' Washington, April - 30.rWashington politicians are wondering if there is to be a split in the democratic party next year, the east against the west. ' There are signs in the west which point toward it, and the subject is one which is attract ing a good deal of attention among poli ticians of both parties everywhere. Several propositions bearing upon this possible split and seemingly encouraging it are self evident: FirstBryan must be reckoned with in the 1904 campaign first, in the national convention second, if that body refuses to follow him, in the regular campaign. SecondThe eastern democracy, which dislikes Bryan, and the trust promoters of Wall street, strong supporters of repub lican policies until now, who dislike Roosevelt, are united in an ardent desire to retire both permanently from active participation in public affairs. ThirdThe rumor of a coalition between these hitherto hostile elements has reached the great west, with the result that both Bryan and Roosevelt haVe been much strengthened in that Quarter. FourthThis situation gives promise that the 1904 democratic national con vention will be one of the liveliest for many years. The eastern branch of the party will go to the convention supporting Judge Parker, Olney, Gorman, or some man of that type the middle west de mocracy will go opposing any man whom the east may present. In the struggle which will follow, Bryan will probably be defeated. Then what? . It is a- curious fact that the democrats of the great west, who followed Bryan to defeat in two national campaigns, are friendly to President Roosevelt, and en tirely ..satisfied with him as a man and as president. .-Free silver being dead, they stand for him on all the great issues of the'day, and are prepared to trust him so far as the tariff is concerned. What these men will do next year will depend very largely upoii Bryan. At this time it looks as if one of two things would hap pen.. assuming that Bryan cannot control the. 1904 convention: - .'(%) The nomination, at Bryan'ssugges ti'oh: ,of ah. independent democratic tick e t, adhering to the Kansas City platform and protesting against the swallowing of the eastern wing of the party by Wall street , or . - (h) tbe support at the polls, by. the western, ,or Bryan, democracy, again at Bryan's suggestion, of Roosevelt.. Bryan's friends in the west have said openly, and Bryan has said the same thing in his public utterances, but more guard edly, that the western democracy will not support any man next year whOjjs under suspicion of being managed by the trusts. Cleveland. Olney or Gorman would be re pudiated on their records Judge Parker because of the company he is found in, another case of Old Dog Tray. It is so evident that the Bryan people will not vote for any man who is nomi nated at the behest of thfe old line east ern bosses, that argument of the propo sition is useless. If\the eastern states are* not acquainted with the western democratic situation, they ^are. sadly be hind Hhe times. There are : signs, how eve, that they.'jare" atJQua'irited with it, elseVwhy the rumor, so frequently re peated of"-la-fe. that it is.-!-the intention of the eastern managers, after they have gained control of the party in the .national convention,-to-cut-loose from Bryan, aban don the. great west to Roosevelt, and focus the campaign on the so-called trust states, Kew York. Connecticut. Rhode Island, New Jersey, Delaware and West Virginia Vl*V -jSr 7hW*Mfiff&->j With the electoral votes of these states, added to those ~s.ucir state* as Indiana. Ho%s|yeTt?s No. 7 No. 12 No. 16 22 to 60 lf6rinMitien^ vof the solid south, and o would be more nearly possible than some of his sanguine friends now think. It is another curious fact that President Roosevelt will probably poll .next year the largest labor vote ever cast for a repub lican pnesidential .nominee. -. Hitherto this vote has been JargeJyt: democratic. It is gathered together in .*he great cities, and explains, more than any other single fact, why these centers of population are usual ly-democratic. - ' Roosevelt's- course regarding the settle merit ' of the anthracite coal strike, and his manly, courageous and fair attitude toward, all questions concerning labor, have won the hearts of the laboring classes: They like "his frankness, his very evident purpose to take the people fully and freely into his confidence, his stand for higher ideals and a purer citizenship. They believe in him because he is typical ly an American citizen, his veins filled with rich, red American blood, and his im pulses steadily and immovably on the side of the right. They will vote for him in large numbers, and help swell the popular majority by which his admirers believe he will be elected. In this connection it may be said that the Roosevelt boomers insist that he w jll break all records next year so far as popular vote is concerned, and in the event of a democratic split establish a new high water mark in the electoral college. This estimate of Roosevelt's labor strength is made as.the result of personal inquiries made within the past two months in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Min neapolis. St. Paul, Milwaukee, Kansas City and St. Louis, in which cities democrats as well as republicans, and best of all, business men not in politics, call atten tion to the curious political phenomenon of organized labor preparing to rally in sup port of a republican presidential candidate. The feeling that the trusts do not like Roosevelt has been a factor in this change, of labor sentiment. This article has been written on the as sumption that Roosevelt will have the re publican nomination next year. Any other assumption would do violence to the truths It is true that last winter, while trust legislation was being urged on con gress from the White House, and while the strike arbitration was' at a critical stage, strong efforts were made to induce, first Senator Hanna to enter the field against Roosevelt for the nomination? and afterwards. Senator Fairbanks. Both gen tlemen were taken upon a high mountain and shown all the treasures of the trust world but they did hot yield to the temp tation. They knew what the result would be to them. They saw the irresistible force with which the Roosevelt tide was even then gathering, and did not propose to be' engulfed" by it The time is sev eral months gone by since the trusts have thought seriously of - trying to prevent Roosevelt's nomination. They have seen that they could not bring into the nomina tion contest against him anybody who could command the confidence of the party or of the country, and, therefore, they have changed "their tactics. As was point ed out in the beginning of this article, it is now their hope to secure, the nomina tion by the democrats of some such man as Judge Parker of New York. Having accomplished this, they propose to finance the democratic campaign,, confining it to the so-called trust states of the east, and one middle west state, possible. Indiana and these with the solid south, would al most if not quite elect their man. Obviously, the effect of Such a victory would mean the permanent retirement of both Roosevelt and Bryan. It should be said of the men who have evolved this plan,.that they do not know politics any better-than the coal operators last winter Hnew the labor problem but that doesn't alter the fact that the plan is a very real.one, and that its promoters are in earnest They will probably fall but that story will be told with best ef fect after the elections next year. If, as has been threatened, the trusts undertake next year to prevent the nom ination of Roosevelt thru railroad influence in the several states, there will be trouble for the trusts. The undertaking will fail and the trusts will hasten the day of still further tetlera.1 restriction. It such tot at tempt is made it'wiil be due to the fact thaC the trust managers are not politicians and know nothing of how to manage /men. They will go down to defeat just' is the coal operators went down last win ter.
