Bryan, of Nebraska FOR VICE-PRESIDENT: John W. Kern. of Indiana PUT OUR FOOT IN IT We have "sho nuff"put our foot in it, and our venerable head is bowed low, not only with the weight of years, but under the cartload of with ering sacasm, scintillating wit and brilliant satire which the juvenile Adonis who directs the fortunes of our esteemed contemporary piled in big chunks on the aforesa.d vener able bead, in a column article last week. In the halcyon days of our kid hood, so many, many moons ago, when we welcomed the coming of springtime, and the discarding of shoes and stockings, we have many times put our foot into substances that made us wish we had gone round but we had little thought that fate would will that we should come to a' ripe old age in order to put our foot into the worst mess of all. Alas! how forcibly we have Leeni made to realize that the days Vf our youth-the possession of which our. neighbor so prodly boasts, are gone, and we look back, with regret we confess, to the time when we had the youth, although not gifted by nature with the physical perfections of our neighbor; the days when we wore a happy and not a dejected mien; when we had our eyesight and no dyspepsia; and the world looked bright and the future brighter, but now, again alas! we can only repeat the words of some immortal poet and how we have been made to real ize their aptness: "All he can say now is buzz, buzz, buzz; "Once I was it, now, only a wuz." However, we feel that our litt'e article on "Journalism vs. Joshism" has accomplished some little good, as our h .e. c. has evidently profitt:d by the advice carried in our article, for there is no one will dispute that our neighbor's article, referred to above, is the apotheosis of courteous, up-to-date journalism. In the meantime, we are wearing sack cloth and ashes, and taking the dispepsia tablets according to direct ions. WILL THE PEOPLE RULE? The Great Falls Tribune, ij: a re cent editorial headed "Shall The Peo ple Rule?" gives a very apt illus tration of the situation in th- house of represnttaivees, and the attitude of the party which poses a:; be:ng the only real friend the people cv. r had, when it says: "One of the strongest !oints made by Mr. Bryan when he made his speech to the committee on not'f:ca tion the other day, wat; when he called attention to the fact that ,he house of representatives under the republican system oi rules had ceas ed to be representative. and a maj ority of its members no lon~er were able to make their will off etive. All power and authority is vested in the speaker and half a dozen leaders, and the congressamen who failed to obey their commands mli;ht as well take the next train home so far as anything they can do is concerned. "In the congress wh!ich has just ad Journed the minority leader, Mr. W 11 iams, repeatedly declared on the f:oor of the house that the democrats would' furnish all the votes needed to put in-! to law several measures reconmend-I ed by a republican president if the republicans on their part would .urn over 30 votes to bring the laws cut of the hands of the committ e chair , where they were being quietly C _hloPa~ r rmed. Doubtless, far more] than 30 ptublicans favored the pass. "age of these ~t.ws recommended by - the D'0sident. Nof A dozen dared to ~cea their votes with the demo (Yats in :Opposition to the will of the :a Iaer and his ring." Mr TBryan will be up agalnst the real thing after his election, but the Herald has faith that his sagacity, iron will and indomitable energy will be able to bring about some of the needed reforms embodied in republi can promiss which have never been fulfilled. VICIOUS JOURNALISM The attack in last week's Plain dealer on one of our l:adiing citizens unwarranted as it was malicious, un generous and untruthful, and it car ried, all the way through, the pla.n ear marks of personal malice and spitc. The citizen in question be.nr one whore only fault, if it can be call ed a fault, is to give th- best he has in him toward forwarding the best in terests of Havre, and why he should be subjected to sucth a vicious at tack is bye!d the comprchcnsion of all lovers and believers in fair play. In his quiet, unassuming way, he is trying to support his family and educate his children, and it would seem to us that his family, at least, should be respected, even did occa sion, to any extent, warrant throw ing such a poison pointed harpoon in to him. It is well known to all who Pie familiar with conditions, and es pecially to those who have kept in touch with recent events, that this geetlenial in seeking neither political office or political pr fc:mrent of any kind, and subsequent cvcnts wiil ful ly bear out this st:tement. The un called for reference to his call ing was a, unkind n. it was obnhox ious, but fully in accord with the character of the man whc made it, and quite in kc'ping with hi: id ens of ? , ii..., of jou-nalisi l l. - -·C--- t--·· NEW YORK PAPER FOR BRYAN X/ery significant are the recent ed itorials of the New York Times, a strong anti-Bryan paper, in which the Times advises Taft to get off his duck huntin. clothes and don clothes in which he can hunt for votes, and advising the party to come out of the trance of fancied security, and get busy. admonishing them that Bryan has gained vastly in strength, and that his chance fcr election this fall 1; better than ever, and practically admitting that it is fairly good. The Evening Post takes the same view of the situation, and is out with double leaded ,editorials, a!ong the, same lines.

"My father has for years been troub led with chronic diarrhoea, and tried every means possible to effect a cure, without avail," writes John H. Z r kle, of Philippi, W. Va. "He saw Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy advertised iii the Philippi Republican and decided to try it. The result is one bottle cur ed him and he has not suffered with the disease for eighteen months. Be fore taking this remedy he was a con stant sufferer.

'That the demands of the times are toward the practical in education is be sum of the expert opinion brought vat by the World's Work In answer to a direct inquiry upon this subject. The magazine asked several leading edanators to name the new tendency of most value and signifieanee for the present conditions of Ameriean life. Generally the replies favored what one expressly stated as follows: "In struction aimed definitely to assist men who are going into business." In this connection technical training, in eluding agricultural high schools, got a good wordf. In a general survey of our educatinal tendencies by United States Commissioner Elmer B. Brown the point is unsle that as a nation "we have become seriously interested in trade schools" :ulrl that the "interest tn rural schools has taken a new turn" -namely, a new type of rural educa tion represented by the agricultural high schools. While the note of the practical is the one at the front in the majority of the replies received, the idea of knowledge for its own sake is not thrown aside. Thus Commissioner Brown speaks of a farreaching "en deavor to bring together two kinds of education which for centuries have gone apart--namely, the education of the school and education by the ac tual doing of the things of ordinary daily life." This dual ideal is more clearly put by Professor Claxton of the University of Tennessee, who says that the education which will make good citizens and at the same time develop ability to add to the common wealth of the country is now of most value and signficance. That the tend ency of our methods have been one sided in the past is suggested by Tay lor of Vassar, Humphreys of Stevens Institute of Technology and Hadley of Yale. President Hadley thinks that the elective system has plunged edu cation into "chaos" in this country, while President Taylor believes that' the capacity of the child should be taken into account before determining the form of education to be~.given. President Humphreys voices the well worn complaint that "in the effort to cover many subjects we have drifted into superficiality." Some of the these answers are in the nature of criticism rather than of information, yet the tendency of thought is of interest as possibly bearing upon the tendency of action. ........ Modern Diplomacy and Berlin. We still have to take on faith the as sertion that our ambassador, David Jayne Hill, was really never objected to by the German emperor. Gradually doubtless we shall get light on the matter, and the truth will not disclose things other than creditable to Ameri ca and the American idea of diplo macy. Recently Mr. Hill has given the public an inside view of the work ings of his mind with regard to the province of diplomacy in these days. Briefly be intimates that the ideal of today is not intense nationalism, but broad internationalism. No nation stands or can stand alone. All na tions are interdependent. Hitherto in his imperial career Wil liam II. has assumed in the slang of the street that Germany is "it." No matter about the fate of other nations, the pre-eminence and of course the dominance of Germany must be forced by hook or crook. No doubt he pre ferred an American representative at Berlin who would work along the lines he laid down and engage in plots and counterplots calculated to exalt the owner of the "mailed fist." Dr. Hill, being a scholar, is a man of direct thinking and acting, therefore out of place in star chamber councils. It was his style of American diplomacy that held up Germany's overreach in the Morocco business a couple of years ago. America has no favorites in the European political scramble, and if it ever should have it will probably be the "under dog." The whole world i our neighbor, the ally we lean upon and will support. The list of killed and wounded ev ery Fourth is calculated to make one sympathize with that unconvinced Unglishman who said, "In 1776 the United States declared its independ enee of Great Britain and has been punishing itself' once a year ever 1ine1." At a recent test five applicants for the positlon tf life guards eealn't swan.

I th e business Interests of the eun tr cannot stand an adanee oft atces as soa tof the railway heads and all shippers contend, then the raisOads cannot ators to persist in maintala tag an advance. The railroads need boeelag business and full ears ad not stagnant business and empty cars. If the men who are expected to pay the freight ean't pay it they won't ship goods, for in the end it all comes aout of the consumer, and, to go to'the crux of the. argument, consumers don't have to be consumers if they don't want to. One stock argument of the railroads that the rates fixed years ago do not pay now because wages and other ex penses are heavier has.been punetured by one of the chief shippers of the coeuntry. He says that with the rise in the cost of labor and commodities the roads have actually added to theirI rate receipts by cutting off rebates. Sometimes the rates now collected in full were cut 50 per cent under the old system. Every practical man knows that there has been in the past a great deal of rate fixing in order to "get business." Perhaps a uniform rate can now be made which will get business and not kill it. 'All the facts on both sides should be fairly presented to the public by the rail road and the shippers and be consid ered with equal fairness by the pub lic, which first, last and always "pays the freight."
