Tin- announcement that President Rooacvclt still is in favor of a gener? ous supplementary appropriation for the Jamestown Exposition is encour nglng news to those who are virtually Interested in the success of the great celebration which is to take place on Hampton Roads in 1007. In all id' the big expositions there has been government participation am! generous appropriations. There is no re-.sou why the cry of economy should be raised at this special juncture in or? der to discriminate against Virginia enterprise. With a little assistance from the na? tional government it Is certain that the Jamestown Exposition will be as much a linanclul success as was tho tlic l ewis and Clark exposition, which bus just conic to a close in Portland, with a splendid record and with the Unheard nf possibility of paying bnek a large proportion of the stock sub? scriptions which made the exposition possible. AS TO RAILROAD REBATES. Ill his IctlCr to PrCHhIoill Roosevelt, given "in by Colonel Bryan on the c\ ? of Ids departure for Europe, this para? graph is noted: 'Pass over the railroad representa? tives and appeal i<> tin- people, Com? pel the opponents of railroad legisla? tion to nice'. I lie IssUOH ill tile open. There is no logical or even plausible argument against the legislation which you recommend. Extortion in rates, nulalrncss, discrimination against per. sons, discrimination against places, niidiiighl tariff and rebates galore?all of these iniquities have resulted from lack of regulation. They are intoler? able and must he stopped. Will you use the great influence of your office in secure tin- regulation*! now or will you leave the honor to a successor'.'" Tin- opponents of railway legisla? tion present against this view of I he matter the following deliverance of tin- inter State commerce commission found in the last report of the commis? sion : "This act lo regulate commerce pro? hibits a difference in charges as be? tween shippers 'by any special rate, rebate drawback or other device,' an I tin- granting of any undue preference to any Individual or species of traffic 'III any respect whatever.' and the El kins amendment, requiring the publi? cation of tariffs in all cases, prohibits liildet severe penalty any practice on the part oi tin- (artier 'whereby any si-,' ii property shall by any device whatever he transported at a less rate than that named in the tariffs. * ? * rir whereby nny other advantage Is given or discrimination is practiced.* Tin: manifest Intention of the act to regulate commerce, ( specially as ex pressed in the Elklns amendment, is (o strike, through all pretense, all in? genious device lo tin- substance of Hie transaction Itself; and whom cxeco-t l ive divisions or vales an- granted by a i at i let lo another carrier owned and ? out rolled by a shipper, for the pur? pose of obtaining the traffic or that ubl|i|ier, they hem-in ,Ul. shipper and operate as a rebate or other ..-?>>,; la ?.-id Ho- tariff charge in violation of the Jaw."

Tint what ean he expected ol any system of laws when the President himself .-n nounccs the principle that punishment must not reach the offending Individ ual u>< nitiers of a railway corporation which violates the law? The fault Is net in the statutes themselves, hut In the faulty enforcement of them. The prevailing prejudice against married school teachers Is thus han? dled by the Kansas City Journal: "Whatever tends to lessen woman s ability to support a husband dlseonv ages matrimony and defeats multipli? cation." Incidentally it might he well to consider the question upon its merits.

Senator llevcridgc, of Indiana, gets ?>rr Die following sententious remark: "He honest with the world and the world he hones-, with you." This is probably true, for even If the senator world will he honest with you."

Every man who acts crazy is not In? sane.?Italcigh (N. C.) Post. Our contemporary should be careful however, in view of the fact thai such actions are regarded as valuable cor* rohoral ivc evidence in making out a case against a man. Some of our Chicago contemporaries are worried over the apathy of tho voters in connection with the approach? ing municipal election in thai city. It would be more apropos if they were worried over the conditions which ar ? responsible .for the apathy. The Ice supply of the Northwest is said io he running short.
