Tlie Influence which the race from the little coun
try of Scotland has had and still has upon life and
affairs in all lands where the English lnngiiasfc is
spoken stands out as a remarkable feature of mod
ern history. England had no sooner established
union with Scotland than the Scotchman began u
be a powerful factor In England. The Empire be
came, for that fact, greater, .stronger and better.
In the United Slntes, Canada and Australia, where
Scotchmen and their descendants are a large part
of the population, the same beneficial impress is
America owes much to the Dne racial character
istics of the Scot. The Scotchman never forgets
his traditions and his hereditary beliefs. It is thi3
loyalty, with his patriotism for hte voluntarily adopt
ed country and his numerous, well-known qualities
of heart and mind, which endear him to the fellow
citizens of any Government to which he may pro
nounce allegiance. His jespect for his race makes
him an Ideal citizen.
Scottish Day at the World's Fair, next Monday,
will be celebrated by others than those who are of
Scotch birth and of Scotch descent. The programme
for the event will be appropriate, and consequently
interesting, with Scotch sentiment predominating.
There will be addresses in tio Uall of Congresses,
ceremonies at the Burns Cotttige, parades by Scotch
organizations, exhibitions by Scotch associations in
costume, Scotch music by Scotch pipers, Scotch
songs, and, all In all, a thoroughly Scotch celebra
tion. The day will naturally be important to all of
Scotch blood. But it will have significance, also,
for the many who appreciate the value which the
race has been and is to civilization, education, lit
erature, art, law and advancement generally. To
have done m much for the world the beautiful lit
tle country must have discharged wonderful energy
and Inspiration.
It Is Imperative that the judges and clerks who
are to serve at elections in the next two years
should be of the trustworthy element of citizenship
In every precinct. Under the new law, which is
now operative, it is possible to get officials who will
be satlsfactoiy in every respect. Service Is made
obligatory on the part of any citizen who may be
appointed, aud in exchange the appointee Is exempt
from jury duty.
The list of appointees for two years' service has
been published by the Board of Election Commis
sioners and announcement is made that the Board
will conduct a hearing next Monday, when com
plaints against the officials selected will be heard.
If the criticisms are verified, such objectionable of
ficials will be removed. Unfortunately, there is con
siderable difficulty about proving a charge In this
connection, and this difficulty always makes It hard
to get a name off the list, once It is there. But
the board Is disposed to exercise Its full authority,
in order to get the right officials, and no leniency
should be shown in any person's case where there
is sufficient reason for doubt
"While the published list shows a very marked
improvement In the character of men chosen, there
are some names which ought to be excluded. There
is more reason this year than there has been for
the appointment of trustworthy officials. First, the
law enables the department to require good men to
serve. Second, it is a new and Improved law, which
will receive its first trial this autumn, and it should
be put into operation under the best conditions.
Third, serious charges have been made against
former officials, and men entirely free of suspicion
must be appointed. Fourth, and particularly, the
issue Involved Is of the greatest gravity.
Those appointees who may be considered objee
sense of duly about stating objection and charges
to the board, and the board should be more than
willing to exercise its authority in making the com
plete list as thoroughly satisfactory as possible. It
is especially imperative that the hot type of of
ficials should be appointed in wards and precicc's
where election crimes and trickery have occurred, or
may occur. The new law offers ai opportunity to
both parties to exhibit their best instincts.
.lndge Parker stands before the people with the
declaration that if elected he will give himself
ii holly to the discharge of his duty without a
thought for renoniimitloii. "1 am lully persuaded."
he announces, "that no incumbent of that otliiv
should ever be pl.tced in a situation of possible
temptation to consider what the effect of action
taken by him In an administrative matter of great
ImKirtance might have upon his political fortunes."
lie states flatly that if elected lie will not lx a can
didate for nor will lie accept a .second term.
His lK)itIon Is not intended to reflect upon Mr.
Itoosevelt. but the career of the latter lia In-cn in
such conspicuous eontra-t to the principle of disin
teiestcd and unembarrassed service as to bring the.
public mind to rest upon it inevitably.
Mr. Roosevelt began the vice presidency with a
disappointment. There had been talk of him for
first place on the ticket, but he was shelved. One
of the bitterest organization lights in the Kepublic
an record was made on the exclusive hero of San
.loan Hill, aud until the accident occurred which
reopened his political future he seemed to have been
effectually eliminated. But hope liounded high with
his sudden unforeseen elevation to the office he had
sought directly and failed to attain, aud the way
opened as it had opened for other Vice Presidents
for a nomination. Events show that Mr. Itoosevelt
has never taken his eye from the ultimate goal: hi.
series? of endeavors to that end bore unmistakable
significance of punxise; in this one direction he has
exhibited the most unwaering consistency.
To be President In bis own right lias been for
three years an absorbing passion with Mr. Itoose
velt, The passion carried him far away from bin
early promise to continue the jmllcy of McKinley.
lie glaringly discontinued that policy. McKinley
lsm looked plainly toward tariff revision. .Mr.
Itoosevelt has spared no efforts to throttle that ten
dency. In so doing occurred his first great capitula
tion to the machine on Iehalf of his candidacy: a
great sacrifice of public Interests to private ambi
tion. MeKiuleyisni w.-ie. broad and conciliatory,
making powerfully for the eradication of sectional
distinctions. The predecessor of Mr. Itoosevelt
possessed the spirit of intercession and was In-loved
by millions of Southerners for his fair and even
kindly nttitudc; but the incumbent harshly violated
both the policy and the spirit of McKinley's ad
ministration and marked anew the purely sectional
differences. He lit a lino of cleavage with fiery
prejudice as to old issues mutually relinquished long
ago- and he did it distinctly in the interest of his
personal candidacy with the immediate object of
clinching the negro vote.
Mr. Itoosevelt shortly after his succession de
clared that he would rather be a whole President
for three years than half a President for icveu a
statement so diametrically conflicting with his
course of official conduct as to exhibit an inner de
sign. Mr. Itoosevelt hns leen less than half a Presi
dent and more than half a candidate during his oc
cupancy. His first message to Consress made a
low obeisance to the powers of private monopoly
which he had offended in-thedays of his disinterest
edness when he railed against "protection" and
shouted, "Shackle the trusts!" Mr. Itoo-evelt's can
didacy Is written large in his congressional mes
sage?. It is stamped on all of his official acts of
To be a President and a candidate. at the same
time is'difficult. Some of our Presidents have been
big enough men to fill lxrth statures. To serve Un
people well has been the best and surest mode of
securing re-election. That is the only honorable
mode. Three good full years were given to Mr.
Roosevelt to render himself a great and invaluable
pen-ant of the people, but he chose instead ro serve
Ills ambition first and the people incidentally when
it was convenient
Judge Parker has burned his bridges behind him
and has anticipated any possible approaches of
temptation to serve himself at the nation's cost. He
stands free to do his full duty, to fill the office up to
the entire measure of his capacity, to observe with
the most scrupulous conscience the whole obligation
of his constitutional oath. He would be an unfet
tered President.
"Since coming to the Fair and especially since
observing the Eskimo," says the Honorable -r.
N. I'oote, formerly of Knobnoster, now of Protein,
Taney County, "I have become more than ever im
pressed with the principle that heat Is intimately as
sociated with life; and I believe that had it been
possible for the ancient Greeks to visit the great
world's Exposition here they never would have sur
rendered their notion that heat was the very c
sense and Mtircc of life itself. I am not prewired
to go as far as the Greeks were, but I will go far
enough to assert that the Eskimo originated not
in the frozen North but in some more tropic region.
It is clear to my mind that these people would not
require their heavy furs had they been indigenous
to the soil, as it were, but would, notwithstanding
the temperature, or rather the lack of it. be able to
frisk about in nature's garb precisely as the Igor
rotes. Nature could not and did not produce them
under such cold conditions, else nature herself would
have armed them against those conditions, and they
would not have had to adopt artificial skins.
"These matters," continued Mr. Foote, "inevi
tably lead me to a consideration of the principle of
life as applied to our great political parties. Since
turning from the Republican party, having beenj-e-pelled
by its demeanor in this glorious Common
wealth, I have had occasion to note its unnatural
aspect; and I cannot but conclude that nature never
intended it for this country originally. Moreover, I
believe that it is dead interiorly and that its artificial
and superficial exterior is fast taking on the condi
tion imparted from within. It Is cold and unat
tractive. "But when I turn to Democracy I find the
warmth and life of progression. I find the life
blood pulsing In all its veins. Its body is fed from
the heart of the people. It draws its life from the
nation's life. It wears no guise, no false garb, nor
docs It require any. It was born naturally into
this country and the climate suits it first-rate.
"I believe that the Republican party, however,
will have to put on some extra furs in order to with
stand the frost this year. There will be, unless I
read the signs amiss, a blasting frost in November.
In Missouri I believe it will cause the Republican
organization verily to shrivel up. And, to be per
fectly frank, I believe that the Republican party
has no business in Missouri. What's the use of It,
anyhow? It certainly hasn't got any scientific
cm tie friend, Joe Folk. Since then it has only
served to make the people mad. For my part, I'm
thoroughly glad I'm out of it."
Needless to say, a good many of the Republican
politicians are also glad that the Honorable Foote
is out of if. He was, while lie endured to remain
with them, the most conspicuous and, possibly, most
disturbing gubernatorial candidate in the lot.
St. Louis is profoundly inteiested in the auto

In the last fortnight bring to general attention a
new method of easy and quick transportation, a
machine which certainly is destined to be an im
portant factor m facilitating the transaction of busi
ni'ss. in adding to the conveniences of life. In bring
ing city and country into more intimate relations,
and in causing the improvement of streets, roads
and transcontinental highways.
While the automobile still Is a comparatively new
and unimproved vehicle, it is already used to make
one of-tlie most spectacular demonstrations of gen
erations. Coaches, which aie operated by the same
energy as those carriages and delivery-wagons which
are seen daily on the streets of every big city bring
travelers in speed and comfort from the most dis
tant parts of the United States, showing that, with
good roads and streets, the automobile ir, to lie the
most useful of convenient traveling machines.
Itefote tlie tourists arrived in St. Louis, Mr. F. A.
La Roche had completed his endurance te.st from
New York to St. I,ouis and return, covering V,,l0
miles in fifteen dajs and two hours, without making
a stop. His performance breaks the worldV nonstop
rucoid by more than 3.400 miles and gives to an
American an honor which previously was held Iij
Mr. D.'N. Weigel of England.

the advantages of this modern vehicle. But the ob
ject of the tours war, not solely to exploit the auto
mobile. As well, and as particularly, it is to sliow
the need of good roads in all States.
It may be said that the chief object of the tours
i to inspire popular and official interest in the con
struction of gocd rural roads and good -ity streets.
The purpose is to urge the United States Govern
ment to assist the States In improving highways,
and the States to assist the counties in building
good roads. As for good streets, the cities must
help themselves; and. in order to do this, there must
be harmony among officials and citizens.
The Glo'.io complains because of the stamped-; to
Folk among good citizens in the Republican ranks.
If lioodle Democrats can ignore party lines, a.s they
have, to support Walbridce, why cannot good Re
publicans rise above party and support Folk? l'lie

not good citizens, legardles.s of party, rally to his
support as they are doii-s'r AVheu boodlers get to

Decadence marks the New York Sun. It de
ecribes the Democratic platform as "the miserable
hell broth of dishwater and dynamite concocted at
St. Louis." That could have been written by a

The Chicago Tribune takes exactly the view we have
already expressed, viz. that the Missouri Republicans
sinned against the Iisht when they made a party nomina
tion for the governorship and refused to indorse Mr.
"What the convention should hae done," says the
Tribune, "was to indorse him, not as si Democrat, but as
an. antlboodler." "The boodlers," It adds, "will undoubt
edly holt Folk and vote for the Republican candidate, but
for every boodlcr whose vote he loses Folk will gain
ten ballots from honest men who had heretofore voted
for the straight Republican ticket, but who will, in the
coming election, vote for Roosevelt and Folk. Folk will
probably be elected by one of the greatest majorities
ever cast for any candidate in Missouri. Which ls as It
should lie."

HEN sparrows build, nnd the leaves break
My old sot row wages and cries.
For I Knot? there is dawn In the far. far
And a scarlet sun doth rise;
Like a scarlet fleece the snow-field
And the ley founts run free.
And tne bergs begin to bow their heads.
And plunge, nnd sail In the sea.
O, my lost love, and my own, own love.
And my lovo that loved mo so!
Is there never a chink In the world
Where they listen for words from be
low .'
Nay, I spoke once, and I grieved thea
I remember nil that I said.
And now thou wilt hear me no more, no
Till tho sea jrives up her dead.
Thou didst set thy foot on the ship, and
To the ice-fields and tho snow;
, Thou wcrt tad, for thy love did naught
And the end I could not know;
How could I tell I should love thee to
day. Whom that day I held not dear?
How could I know I should lovo theo
Whcn I did not love thee ancar?
We shall walk no more through the sod
den plain
With the faded bents o'crspread.
We shall stand no more by the seething
While the dark wrack drives o'erhead;
We shall part rtp more In the wind and,
the rain.
Where thy last farewell was isaid;
But perhaps I shall meet thee and know
thee again.
When the ea civea up her dead. ,
"After I look at a seascape." said ono
younjr woman who is a faithful h-itor to
the pictures. "1 always want to look at a.
landscape. You know, when one has been
at sea a while, one wants to go ashore,
and when one has been on shore a while,
one wants a trip at sea."
On this theory the Wlnslow Homer ea
paintings and the Bruce Crane landscaj-es
In the American section can be dirurscd
together. They certainly have the re
lationship of contrasts In more ways than
one, but in nway more forcibly than in
the disappointment occasioned bj- the
former and the satisfaction to be had in
the latter.
Wlnslow Homer can afford to be disin
polnted; he his a clientele all his own, and
It ls that particular kind of a clientele
which buys pictures. Within limits, he's
"the rage" In the East as a painter of the
sea. fc'omehcw we expected to s- Mime
fine tumbling billows and enjoy an inland
breath of that "salt tea air" we hear to
much about.
His two pictures do not contribute these
desirable notes to the main gallery. T''e
one 19 called "Bariy Morning" and the
other "Weather Beaten." In the former,
the early morning is rising over what the
novelist would call a "rock-bour.d shore"
Tho leaden swell of the ocean is breaking
upon a forbidden coast. But the mi-fortune
Is that the rocks are not rocky; they
seem rather "loggy"; that Is. like stags
rocks, built in a carpenter shop.
In the second picture are tho billows.
They seem to b" swirling, curling and iturl
in tuna of water upon the shore-: but tho
foam, a white that occupies at least or.e
founh of the canvas, is sugzestive of in
numerable bale" of cotton. If it lsj sea

A deal of skill ls required to i-alnt the
earthly quaJIty of earth, to work out the
clear-obscure In the heavy atmosphere cf
a dtrk day, to use the mysterious effect
which is possible with gray tones and still
depict the solid colors that brighten land
scape under almost any weather condi
tions. When the artist does these things
technically and besides conveys the sug
gestion that this in the literal Is not the
whole of his theme as he tees It. convin
cing' one ahvo of the presence of the rnj stic
and all-embracing robe of nature, then his
landscape will Interest all capable of such
perceptions. Then he strikes the poetic
note In landscape.
To speak of painting poetry or mystio
robes may sound about as profitable ai
discussion of the emptiness of an tnrpty
can. But some landscapes, good from the
viewpoint of the painting it is nil land
scape to many people are as barren of
interest as so much wall space. Others
have a quality that draws you to them
again and again. The secret must lie in
that the mjstcry of nature was felt,
painted and emphasized by the painter.

All must have been painted in the same

Fall, Winter and Spnmr Is apparent and
yet always, though it ls a snow-covered
view- or tho sodden fields after thaw, the
one note ls Eounded. That note, or the
"key" of Bruce Crane paintings, seems not
unlike that which predominates In the
work of a foreigner who handles an en
tirely different class of subjects tho sea
scapes of Jacob Marls in the Holland sec
tion. This may only be a fancy, but. per
haps, here lies the true and suitable re
lationship In contrasts.
