Thomas Jefferson There is one time in the year when deniocraLs of all factions are brought into accord. There is one thing iion which all of them can agree am! that is that Thomas Jelfcrsoli was the founder of ilieii parly and was a model for all good democrats. Hut there is one thing concerning which democrats cannot agree and that is the interpretation of the teachings of Jefferson. The most conservative ad veil as the most radical of democrats pretend to square their conduct with Jcffersonian principles. JJoth cannot he. right and probably neither conser vative nor radical is right. h is foolish as well as idle to iii'tuire what some great statesman would have said or done if he had lived in a later generation. It is ridiculous to claim that any political party of today is the political party of fifty or a hundred years ago. A political party may now maintain some policy that was ad voiated by the leaders of a party of the same name a half century ago, when a reason for such a policy existed though no reason for such a policy may now exist. Such modern party policies art mere fetiches lor Inkling the members of the party together. Whether Jefferson, if living now, would be a democrat we do not know any more than we know whether President Wilson if living at the time ol Jefferson would liave subscribed to his doctrines or vhether Lincoln, if living now, would be a re publican. , AVe make these observations this morning rather than yesterday morning previous to the celebration by our democratic friends of Jefferson day, and the Jefferson banquet last night, for we do not wish to be considered ill the role of a spoil eport or a death's head at a feast. Now, on the morning after, while repentant, chastened and suffering the- pangs of indigestion, we believe our democratic brethren are more open to sound reasoning and more capable of mature reflection. Chicago Women The wonn n of Illinois have not the unrestricted privilege of the ballot that the -women of Arizona tujoy, yet they appear to make a more general us-j t'f such privileges as have been given them. At the late municipal election in Chicago S6 per cent of the total registered vote of women was cast and Thompson the candidate for mayor who stood for good government was elected by a majority little short of lVi.otiO. Eighty-six per cent of any registered vote is an unusually heavy one indicating an intense interest in the issues that have been presented for settlement. AVe believe it is a record vote. It is, at least, a larger percentage than .was ever cast by the voters of this state and was considerably larger than the percentage of the registered male vote in Chicago. In Phoriix, on tho same day the Chicago elec tion was held, when a'really more vital matter wa:i pending here, a proposed radical change in the form of our government, only a little more than 23 per cent of the registered vote was cast. What, percentage of the registered vote of the women of l'lioenix was attracted to the polls we do not know, but it was certainly much less than the percentage t.f the total vote. The Chicago women saved the day there. AVe believe that if X5 per cent of the women of Phoenix bad gone to the polls a week ago yesterday the re sult would have been iUite different as to the pro position to change the charier. Let St. Louis Be Heard The Chicago I tecord-Herald is conducting a symposium on the subject of flilly Sunday1. Sunday is contemplating a visit to that city but he is not mire that the demand for his presence is sufficiently insistent. He wants to be sure that his welcome will be as feverish as his language. The Hecord llerald has thrown open a department for an ex pression of the views of its readers which vary, vidoiy from a demand for the coming- of the evan gelist and a vigorous opposition to his coming. Sprinkled among the views are those of a class of citizens who are wholly indifferent but take occasion to ask why the Kecord-Herald is wasting so much space. One correspondent strikes a sensible note when lie inquires vhy those who do not approve of Sun day take the trouble actively to oppose him. They need not attend his meetings or contribute to his cause. Chicago is a large city, abounding in means and places of amusement and lacilities for spending money. ' Another correspondent suggests that Mr. Sun day has erred in trying to ascertain whether Chit-age wants him. The voice which should direct him. "Preach the gocpel to Chicago sinners" should come from some other source than Chicago. If the apos tles had waited for calls from the cities and locali ties they visited the gospel would not have been carried very far. Evangelists of old entered com munities where they encountered coldness, un friendliness and even martyrdom. It our mission aries, and Mr. Sunday is a missionary, awj.lted a call from "the heathen in his blindness" there would be- no missionaries. Kather than ask the Ciiicagoans whether they need him, Mr. Sunday had better ask St. Louis, a neighbor whether Chicago needs him and we doubt not that Hue St. Louis call for Mr. Sunday to preach the gospel to Chicago sinners would be unanimous loud and not to be mistaken. St. Louis as an im partial, distinterested observer of Chicago's short comings, should be considered an authority. "The Clansman" Protests arc being lodged against a project by an eastern tiieater company to film "Tho Clans man'' under another name, the protest being made on the ground that the pictures will reawaken the sectional sentiment that was stirred by Dixon's novel when it was produced. Some years ago the presentation of a dramatization of "The Clansman" was forbidden in southern cities and some northern ones, including New York, probably then, with good reason. AVe had not then been so far removed from tiie reconstruction period that southern people could be reminded with calmness of its events. But, it would seem now, after the lapse of more than a generation, when every actor on the stag at that time has been removed, when there is not now a living defender of the wrongs then commit ted, that Americans could view without rancor a reproduction of scenes that were enacted or might have been enacted at that lime. There might be some revival of bitterness even now but it would be the bitterness of those who would not have been very loyal to the south or the north in the reconstruction days the hangers-on of the north and the south the camp followers, those less animated by patriotism when there was a call for patriotism. . We remember, long alter the war the most ir reconcilable northerners and southerners were those who skulked when the conflict was on. lleally brave men who fought in the blue or the gray were the first to welcome peace. They were ihose who "bound up the nation's wounds." It was "patriots" of another stripe that kept thern fresh and bleeding. RESERVOIR IS FULL (Written for the High Water Celebration at the Koosevelt Dam, April liith, 131j, by request of Harry Welch, secretary of the l'lioenix, Arizona, Chamber of Commerce.)

NON-EXPLOSIVE FILM .AVhat is slatexl to be a completely satisfactory, tion-inflammablo motion-picture film has recently been produced by a French company, but on account of Kuropean conditions it is not available in suffi ciently large quantities for general uso in this coun try at present. Its Jiasic composition is acetate of cellulose, which is not explosive, is difficult to ignite, and burns only when held in a flame. The principal constituent of ordinary films is nitrate of cellulose, which is highly explosive and readily bursts into flame when subjected to high degrees of heat, Popular Mechanics' Magazine.
