Southern Support.
From tiic I:?test news story:
"t.ioorge \V. Perk ins, chairman of the
progressive national executive commit
tec. who has been in the south, reports
that K*>osovelt lias played havoc with
ihe Hughes, Burton. Weeks and MeCail
booms there. Mr. Perkins is expected
to assure the colonel that the latter will
have quite as main republican delegates
from the south as he had in 1912."
Mr. Koosevelt did not have many
delegates from the south in 1912. There
" i many contestants, primed t?? ph'iy
his game, but they did not become dele
srntc>. \ sort of industry of that kind
had horn established. But it had been
carried so far, was so defiant of all fair
dealing, the object was defeated. Some
of the contests were so "raw" they fell
of their tlimsiness. A slight examination
was fatal.
Mr. Roosevelt knew of, if he did not
inspire, the maneuver Men near to
him and in his confidence executed it.
Later, the details came out. Of eours\
after the maneuver failed, there was
nothing for Mr. Roosevelt and his
friends to do hut belabor the other side;
and they did that to the limit. Such
maledictions as were showered on the
heads of southern delegates who had
voted for Taft had seldom been heard.
This year southern delegates are not
being instructed. On the face of things
southern men arriving at the convention
wi'.l be open to argument. The declared
desire on their part i9 to confer with
their fellow party men from sections
where the battle is to be fought. They
well understand that it will not be
fought in their section. Campaign ammunition
used there would be wasted.
The nominee must have strength in
quarters where the party is an aggressive
force and stands a chance to win
at the polls.
If this should prove to be a mere appearance:
if southern delegates formally
uninstructed should be in reality
noosevcu mcii. anu snuuei emurace uie
first opportunity to support Roosevelt
interests in the convention by assisting
in a scheme to stampede the convention
and make the nomination by
hullabaloo, the nomination so made
would be all the more dangerous to the
party because of their participation
in it.
What Mr. Perkins' opportunities on
his southern trip were to sound republican
sentiment on this matter are not
mentioned. He is known everywhere
as the most active ??f the bull moose
leaders, eager for Mr. Roosevelt's retina
to the White House,, which will
mean his own entrance into official life
as Secretary of the Treasury. There
is nothing concealed in his activities;
and politicians, north and south, who
confer with him about Chicago should
understand his purposes, and that in cooperating
with him they do so, not as
republicans, but as assistant bull
moosers. Mr. Perkins himself will not
be. does not aspire to become, a delegate
to the republican national convention.
The loss of a consignment of comic
supplements from New York led to a
horrible suspicion that train robbers
were again out to seize anything valuable
on which they could lay hands.
The 1st of April will not be any improvement
on the ground hog date for
** 11 fools" purposes.
For au American citizen Mexico now
surpasses the high seas as a place of
unsafety first.
Mr. Bryan Puses Muster.
Tins is tlie latest from Lincoln:
"Opposition to the name of William
J. Bryan appearing on the .Nebraska
ballot as a candidate for delegate at
argi to the democratic national convention
on the ground that the former
cabinet member was not a democrat wai
overruled today by the secretary of
state of Nebraska, and Mr. Bryan's name
will remain."
Why, of course. No other decision
would have "consisted'' with common
sense or common fairness. Mr. Bryan
> a democrat ad right. The word is
e'a?,tic these days, and covers inanv
things once, and not so very long ago
citrine the pa!
But it might be well for Mr. Bryan
not to rest on this triumph. He should
whoop up his friends at home for as
big a vote as possible, for effect at Bt
Louis. For he is likely to meet at the
convention the same criticism he ha*
just vanquished.
In several particulars Mr. Bryan
will be the most conspicuous and inter
esting man at the convention. His ora
tory will, as usual, pick him out. Hi?
attitude toward the President will giv?
him a peculiar consequence. His view!
on prohibition and preparedness wil
excite remark. On both of those ques
tious he is in antagonism to the groa'
majority of his party.
On prohibition?which he does no
want made an issue this year?Mr
Bryan encounters the dictum of Mr
Watterson, that '4no democrat can b<
a prohibitionist." Still, Mr. Bryan ii
a prohibitionist, and insists that he i;
t
%
| also a democrat. But he will uot en- |
I counter Mr. Watterson iu person at St. |
. I Louis, unless the latter decides to run
i over on a sightseeing: visit. The faj
nious editor announced some years ago
' that he had attended his last conven- !
j tion; that in future the youngsters must j
I get along without him. I
This controversy will call to the
minds of many that old story coming 1
down from Mr. Cleveland's first admin- 1
istration, of the man who had promised j
an article for a newspaper under the j 1
title. "Why I Am a Democrat,'' but hav- j 1
ing delayed the performance for some t
cause changed his mind, and when re
minded of his promise would write only
i under the title. "Why Am I a Demo- ?
crat?" Clevelandism had proved too j j
much for him. j <

I ('lc\cta?dism. so-called, long since de;- :

casting that Bryan ism had come to j
stay, have never returned to their old |
affiliations. j
War Developments.
For several days the German offensive
at Verdun has slackened so appreciably
as to suggest that tin4 aggressive 1
campaign there has come to an end,]
after four weeks of terrific attack in
which enormous losses have been suf
feiod by both sides. The net result 1
of these four weeks of fighting is a gain
of several miles toward the fortress,
but no actual penetration of the French
lines. Those gains have not proved of ,
any material military advantage. They
have not opened the way toward Paris,
nor have they appreciably weakened the
French defensive. Verdun, as a specific
objective, though of no great military
value, still stands in the French
hands, with the salient that thrust into
the German lines considerably flattened,
but not destroyed.
i
Naturally the German reports have !
minimized the German losses, even as
the French reports have magnified them. ! t
But all conditions rendered inevitable
' :t heavier German loss than a French. ' j
| The attacking side cannot fail to los 4 |
j more seriously than the defensive. I'd- : ,
| til the actual figures are obtainable
ana tliey may never dc Known?u js 1111
possible to judge as to the net value
of the maneuver to the German aide. c
As long as Verdun stands in French
possession, however, the fruitless of- {
fensive against it must be recognized T
as a German defeat, and it cannot fail j ^
to have been a most costly one, which ;
will perhaps have a serious bearing upon j
the general fortunes of the war. j
j A renewed Russian offensive in j *
| northern Poland is reported, the Berlin
dispatches telling of heavy Russian
j losses. Petrograd recites no such de- ^
, tail, but claims success. It is impossible
j to know the truth in that quarter until ,
the dispatches indicate changes in po- ;
sitiou. Meanwhile the Russian advance !
through Asia Minor continues, more
slowly than immediately following the ]
fall of Erzerum, as the invaders pre- <
pare to attack Trebizond. If they have t
the same fortune as at Erzerum and
if Trebizond falls it is probable they
will move once more rapidly westward, '
bringing the menace of capture nearer . 5
] to Constantinople. Reports of Turkish
i disaffection toward Germany persist, 1
and the feeling grows that if the Russians
take Trebizond and continue their I
> advance in Mesopotamia, where they are !
j threatening to cut off Bagdad, the gov- i
I ernment at Constantinople will be
gravely shaken in its allegiance to the .
Teutonic alliance.
... .
In England the old debate as to
whether life is sweeter to a married or '
a single man has been reopened on
rather tragic lines.
j
It would perhaps be a benefit to the j
I wor'.d if the war could be regarded as j
' having concentrated itself, to be settled |,
at Verdun.
>U
j The reward for his o\> u capture is}
about the only loOse change in Mexico j
that Villa does not hope to lay hold of.
France and Germany are both expectant
of a speedy end to the war, but
not the same kind of an end.
When it comes to Mexico Mr. Bryan
seems inclined to admit that an olive
branch has its limitations.

The Pursuit of Villa.
Suggestions are advanced that if the
pursuit of Villa by American troops is '
not quickly successful the expedition
may be recalled from Mexico. It is
difficult to conceive such a development.
Villa will probably be hard to catch.
He is wily enough to avoid a conflict
with a superior force, even on ground
, i of his owu choosing, and he will presumably
delay an encounter at least un[
til he has gathered to his ranks all the '
[ disaffected Mexicans of the western !
? country, notoriously disposed to resist j
. > the established authority. Already re!
ports indicate that he has received ac$
cessions, even from the organized Carranza
ranks, and unless he is pursued
i so hotly that he cannot deploy for re
cruiting purposes he will probably grow
- in strength as the days pass.
% But, however difficult or prolonged
; the chase, it must be continued uuless
* the United States is to acknowledge it
1 self beaten by this bandit. And to confess
defeat at his hands would be to
t invite attacks all along the border. For
Villa, relieved of pressure from this
t j side, would inevitably return to the
. frontier as quickly as possible and re.
new his menace of American lives,
c Thus far there is no reason for belief
s that the de facto government of Mexico
s is capable of an effective pursuit of
i
)
V"i 11a, if it is sincerely disposed to un- I
lertake it. Reports have come of Car- |
ranza columns maneuvering to head j
Villa off from his mountain hiding |
;)laces, luit they are not supported bv f
my definite indications.
However C'nrrnnza acts in the chase
if Villa, now that the United States
lias gone in to catch him, or to drive
iini into Carranza's bauds, it must eon
intie its effort as long as Villa remains
it large. There is more at stake than
lie mere capture of Villa. Withdrawal, I
because of difficulties, would be an unhinkablc
confession of incompetence.
Mexican affairs would be in better
ihape if all who aspire to be called the
at her of their country would follow
Toorge Washington's example as a truth
oiler.

SHOOTING STARS.
BY I'lIILANDKIC JOHNSON.
A Hint.
"I am wedded to my art," remarked
lie idealistic toiler.
"Well," replied the man v.ho works
11 a broker's office, "I wish you joy. |
iiut take it from ui'\ war brides are !
liuch likelier to make home happy." t
Dreaming.
"Where do you intend to spend the
lu miner?"
"I'm going to tind some nice quiet
>laee in the country, where you are not
equired to dress elaborately, where the
'ood is simple and wholesome and I
ibundant and the expense moderate."
"What I wanted to know is where
rou are going. I don't care anything j
ibout your pleasant dreams."
Comprehensive Demands.
jh. men we meet 'most everywhere 1
With ego far from small,
Who don't believe they have their share
Unless they've got it all.
A true friend is one who can see your
faults and spare you useless reminder
)f them. A true friend is not always a
ruthful one.
Incredulous.
"What brings you here?" asked the
limplc savage.
"I want to teach you to lead a peace*ul
life." replied'the missionary.
"Get back to your boat. That's what
rou people said you were trying to injure
all the time you were inventing
aew kinds of explosion."
March Rudeness.
Com in' like a lion an' a-goin' like a
lamb?
Peel de cabin shakin' whiles de windowshutters
slam!
Comin' like a blizzard and a-goin' like
a freeze,
N'ippin' all de little buds a-startin' on
de trees.
Lions has deir faults as I has heard de
white folks say;
Never heard about no lion actiu' data
way.
March it comes a-whoopin' an' a-breakin*
of de rule;
L'oiiiiu' or a-goin* it is like a kickin'
mule.
A lion is de king of beasts. His roar is
big an' deep.
An' when he git's th'uo roarin' he lies
down an' goes to sleep.
He has his dispositions, jes' de same as
other folks.
But sometimes he's good-natured an'
will stand fur little jokes.
Oh, dc wind it come a-prowlin' th'oo
de sunshine or de fog,
A sniflfin' an' a-wailin' like a homeless
yaller dog.
V'ou kin search dem fam'ly records jes'
as fur as you kin see;
You'll never find no lion blood in
March's pedigree.
Critics and Advisers.
From the Ilaltimore Ann-noun.
L'ncle Sam may be short on men and
other things, but the supply of critics
and advisers, all of whom know much
better than he how the campaign
against Villa should be conducted, is
fully up to the mark.
Business Methods.
From the Philadelphia Press.
The czar has appointed a committee
to apply business methods to the administration
of the government. If it
succeeds won't he kindly lend the plan
to the authorities at Washington?
Never Mind the Word!
From the New York Sun.
Senator John Sharp Williams prefers
the word "preparation" to "preparedness."
Call it what you please, senator,
but give it to us at once.'
Baker Busy.
From the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Secretary of War Baker arrived at a
crowded hour, just as the staff was
hanging a map of Mexico over the map
of Europe.
The National Quard.
From the New Orleans Tiuies-Picyunc.
Dispatches from many state capitals
announce that the National Guard commands
will be "ready when needed."
In the actual, or merely in the congressional,
meaning of the term?
Sounds Like Old Times.
From the New York Wafrld.
The first sign of peace in England
Is the expression by Sir Thomas Llpton
of a hope that he may come to New
York next year and resume his great
task of lifting the America's cup.

Black Dress Fabrics
Are Always Interesting.
To a certain class of women black is always the most soughtafter
fabric, and with many others it receives frequent attention and
approval for various garments of their wardrobe.
Black will be largely used this season for the more practical
garments, and every correct weave is ready for you. They are fast
black fabrics, all of thefii. It is important to know this in a season
when there is so much inferiority being offered.
