A New Political Era.
(From the Baltimore News.)
"M tho close of every campaign
fur the Presidency we art* accustomed
to speak of it as having been the most
remarkable on record. Months of dis
cussion of candidates and issues make
them loom large in the public mind,
while other campaigns and other can
didates have gone ‘glimmering thru’
a dream of tilings that were.’
“A three-cornered contest for the
Presidency is a new thing to the vot
ers of this generation; at least, a three
cornered contest in which three can
didates are strong enough, have hack
of them organizations p< overfill enough
ami a following numerous enough to
make each a factor in the campaign.
“This Presidential election is re
markable not only for this reason,
but because it has witnessed organ
ization and development of a third
party with a swiftness which has as
tounded the country, a party which
seems certain, whatever the results of
tomorrows balloting, to lie a big fig
ure in the political history of the
“The proverb has it that it is un
safe to prophesy unless one knows;
but where there is so unanimous an
opinion that a new political organiza
tion has come to stay lx lief must he
due to general recognition of its need,
a recognition that assures perman
ency either of the organization which
meets this public demand or the en
forcement of the reforms the organi
zation advocates through other polit
ical agencies.
“The Progressive party has served
a splendid purpose in breaking up
the old party alignments which had
become a danger to good government
in State, in nation and in municipal
ities. The party fetich has been shat
tered. For the first time, thousands
of men who heretofore would have
thought as soon of changing their re
ligion as of changing their party have
lieen swept into a new current of
thought and have seen party organi
zations in their true perspective, as
agencies and as means to ends. This
development will give great impetus
to independent voting in the future
ami make for better government ev
“The campaign has been epoch
making in other ways. It marks the
downfall of the old political regimes,
of old political methods. This is not
to say that from this day on political
Ixisses and political machines will dis
appear, hut party regularity is the
meat on which the political machine
lives and thrives. A contest which
has shattered worship of the party la
ud is Ixuind to have a far-reaching
effect on the fortunes of organizations
which have depended for existence
upon fealty to the party lalicl, no
matter what it represented.
“Thus it has come about that we
of today have witnessed the inaugu
ration of a new political era. Those
who have not lieen able to see and
rejoice in the coming of a new day
Lave lieen blind to signs writ large in
the political firmanent.”
Unburied 27 Years.
The complaint of her two brothers
in-law that Mrs. Nellie, Bromwell
MeEwen has permitted the body of
her husband, Ralph L. MeEwen, to
remain in the vault of the Wagoner
Undertaking Company at Bt. I/iuis,
Mo., 10 weeks without burial reveals
that often Ixidies are kept altovc
ground for months and even years.
A. Frank MeEwen, grieved because
he is compelled daily to pass the un
dertaking establishment in which his
brother lies unburied, appealed to the
Board of Health for an order of
►Statements by undertakers show
there is in one St. Louis mortuary a
laxly which has lieen there 27 years.
Another undertaker has kept a liody
11 years.
At the establishment of the J. P.
Murrell Sons the body of a negro lias
been standing in a corner 27 years.
The man was ernlpoyed about the es
tablishment. When he died there
was no one to claim his body. It
was embalmed and kept to prove the
perfection of modern embalming.
The Murrells also have the body of
a 2-year-old Japanese who was killed
in the 18% tornado. The body was
found in Lafayette Park and never
was claimed. The Murrells embalm
ed it and have kept it ever since.
Ilnth bodies are as hard as stone,
('iiarles Murrell says a Isidy properly
embalmed can be kept as long as
anyone wants to keep it.
At the establishment of Cullen &
Kelly the body of a woman has been
kept 11 years. When the woman
died the body was turned over to the
undertakers, but the relatives could
not agree who slwiuld bear the ex
pense of burial and the funeral never
has lieen held.
Billion Dollars Needed By
Uncle Sam Next Year.
Estimates of the cost of running the
machinery of the government for the
fiscal year beginning July 1, l!l;5,
which have Iteen prepared by Cabinet
officers show that during the short
session now approaching Congress will
have to appropriate money at the rate
of SI5,(>00,000 a day.
At the outside, Congress will have
only 75 working days in which to ap
portion the vast sum $ 1,100,000,000
which will be required to keep the
(iovernment going.
Although the estimates are prepar
ed in confidence and will have to
come up for approval by the Cabinet
before lieing submitted to Congress, it
has been learned that some of the
largest items asked are:
Treasury, £107,000,000.
War Department, 8200,000,000.
Navy, 81:10,000,000.
Agriculture, 8111,00 1,000.
Legislative, 814,000,000, and I'nst
utlice, 8275,000,000.
The total estimates, excluding the
Postoffice Department, will amount
Ito approximately 8770,000,000. Al
though Congress appropriates a sum
i sufficient to cover the total expenses
of the Postolfice Department, the
I money appropriated does not repre
i sent actual expenditures from the
{Treasury. The I'ostollice is now
about “breaking even.”
The appropriation hills will he lar
ger this session despite the utmost
endeavors of economists within and
without the Capitol. One of the first
things that will go before Congress
when it meets will lie a request for
an emergency appropriation of about
810,000,000 to get the parcels pst in
running order. At the last session
Congress granted only 8750,(MX) for
this purpose.
On account of the extreme pressure
of business at the coming session it
is considered likely Congress will have
all it can do in passing the appropri
ation bills without taking up any
other important legislation.
President Taft will take up the es
timates with the members of his Cab
inet shortly after election.

Hunting Season Opens.
The hunting season of the year 1912
was ushered in very unpleasantly, the
atmosphere being heavy with fog and at
intervals heavy showers of rain falling.
But all this did not keep the anxious to
hunt people at home, and reports from
the hunters’ guns made one think the
Turks and Bulgans had transferred their
field of battle to the south of town and
along Hunting Creek.
Reports indicate that rabbits are plen

Will Have One of the Largest Store in
The Farmers Mutual Exchange, the
original farmers’ organization of this
county, with main office at Myersville,
is making extensive improvements. This
organization began business in 1899 in a
small building 22x30. Later this build
ing was enlarged. In 1907 they built an
elevator and later added a grocers de
partment to their line. Later a line of
hardware was added.
Now they are building an addition of
60 feet, making a frontage to the main
building of 115 feet, for the purpose of
carrying a complete line of general mer
chandise. The building will be heated
by Steam and the store room equipped
with modern improvements. In all prob
ability, this is the largest mail store
building in the county. It reflects great
credit upon the officers and managers of
this company for the success that has
attended their efforts. / iegister.
