In his comparatively brief public areer Congressman Watson of this district has acquired a few personal neu.ies within the Darty lines. Had he not done this he would have per formed a miracle. As always hap aen in such cases the few enemies sake more noise than all the friends, ami the outside world, not knowing She true situation, is liable to be de iived thereby. . Ttese enemies break out periodi cally with impassioned manifestos, apparently issued from different sec Sons of the district, but ail bearing the fcatae ear marks and all breathing She tace spirit. Yesterday one of these appeared in the Indianapolis 2sews, purporting to come from Shel kyriile. It had scare headlines such "Supremacy threatened," "Oppo-' ntion developing to renomination of Watson," etc. After virtually admitting that the article was inspired by a personal jrrievance, "turning down of friends" as he calls it in Etereotyped phrase, She writer turns or returns to Mr. "Watson's record on the Porto Rican matter and attempts thereby to make political capital against him. Among 9tber things in this line he says: In the very face of the convention hat met at Richmond in 1900, Mr. Vutson changed his vote on the Por to iiieaa tariff question, after assur ing bis constituents by letter that he was opposed to the bill and would rote against it, and making the same announcement in a newspaper in letvUw. Tnere was only one news paper irhe eitire district that went to -V'r. Watson's rescue, namely, the Shelby Republican, of this city, and all it asked was that time be allowed to hear Mr. Watson before he was condemned. At Richmond there was a strong movement on foot to have The convention adjourn until early in 5be fall, in order to bring out other fcandidats, but Mr. Watson's friends argued that such a move was unwar ranted, because factional fights would be aroused that would forever wuse trouble in the district. The niht before the convention a love kist was held in the opera house. Al most every candidate for a state of fice was present, and each was called on for a speech It was an opportune time, and the meeting was really "Jim" Watson's meeting, but such s the feeling against him that he did not attend. Few of his friends veu knew of his whereatoats, for he quickly disappeared after reaching Richmond that evening from Rush TiLe. Mr. Watson understood that if he attended the meeting he would be asked to explain his vote on the Jaritf question, and not being ready to speat he kept away. Mr. Watson's course on that Porto Ric-n question has been so often and thoroughly gone over that it ouU set-in unnecessary to say any thing more. But "lest we forget" it may be well to recall a few facts. The position he 'ook at the first flush of the Purto r.ioan tariff question was taen by Piecident McKinley atid probably uine-tenths of the Ri Sbiican part v. That President Mc i jley 'a views ere changed on the subject very orjn after his first ex pKaaion c known. No reason able persou would now question his honesty before or after the change. Whether Mr Yutoas views were arged as suddenly as the Presi dent's were is a question of no im portance. His change of position in deference to the views of the Presi dent and leaders of the party in congress siuply proved aim to be a loyal Republican and a man of broad common secse who, with compara tively brief public experience, was mnwillirg t j press his owe privat puiton in so important a mitter against the j iJs'eaient of the Presi dent and Republican, statesmen oi aaany years experience in public affairs. It is true that the misses of the Joxty were not as promptly convinced af tbe propriety of the Porto Rican policy finally adopted by the admin is t rut ion and congress as were the headers in Washington. But it is jnst as true that the rank and file of Sh party are now practically unani HKxia the view that the policy was right, and it is also just as true that the Republicans of tho sixth district are practically unanimous in approv sag Congressman Watson's course in the Porto Rican matter. The statement made by the Shel- bj'ville writer that orly one paper in the district "went to Mr. Watson's rescue" is cot true. The Palladium, though not convinced at that time that the Porto Rican policy adopted by the administration was the wisest, heartily endorsed Mr. Watson's course for the very reason above stated. And it fairly represented the Republican sentiment of this county and district. The talk about there having been a "strong move ment" in this city to have the con gressional convention postponed on account of Mr. Watson's action in the Porto Rican matter is twaddle. The fact that Mr. Watson was not at the Republican love feast the night be fore the convention was not his own fault, but that of a few ad visers who, as they well knew afterward, were mistaken in their judgment. The RepublicaLS in that love feast would have given Mr. Watson the warmest and most enthusiastic reception of his life, and they were greatly disappointed in not having the opportunity, Mr. Watson did make one mistake during that Porto Rican evolution. He yielded to the pardonable tempta tion to gratify the vanity &f a con stituent (who was wiser in his own conceit than the President and the gi eatest statesmen nf the party) by replying to his letters confidentially and under an impulse too sudden to be judicial. However, Mr. Watson can stand the publication of his letters if the recipient can. He will receive more benefit from the lesson in human na ture he has learned than harm from the publication of this private cor respondence. Some people may think high taxes do not appreciably affect the person owning little or no real or personal property. This is a mistake. Taxes hit everybody. Even the tax dodger does not escape. Landlords and merchants increase rents and prices to cover increased taxes. That in crease must in part, at least, be paid by the renter and consumer. It is even more to the interest of the small tax-payer than to the capitalist to keep taxes down. For the heavy tax payer has a means of protecting him self to a certain extent, and, at all events, can stand the burden if he must. The small tax-payer has no recourse whatever. He is caugl t going and comics and the amoui t of tax however small is burdensome to him. Hence the public official who is always ready to increase taxes by public improvements, and who thinks he is sustained in such action by the small tax-payers, counts without his host. AMUSEMENTS. WAT DOWN EAST. UK The Gossip. The Rev. F. G. Richardson, rector of St. James church of Milwaukee, i verv enthusiastic over "Way Down East. He writes: "I want to say unreservedly, that from such a play as "Way Down E.iSt" an voce will profit more than from a dozen sermons. I have notb tig but admiration for the play, and knsolutely no criticism. There is r.othing about it that is obiectiona o , nd there is nothing in the piece thi will not make for good. The cost dramatic situation in the play is the disclosure of the pas of the rirl. I do not see how anyone could it through that with dry eyes. I sat t er t! rilled, my eyes filled with tears. Tnat work was superb. I wish that this style of play could maintain always I wish that it could crowd out the society dramas. A society play will almost always give a false idea of life, and errone ous ideas of values. But a play like 4 Way Down East' and its class" will uplift the multitude," FOXY GRANDPA.

This standard repertoire company will be at the Phillips next week with the exception of Thursday night, when they will be moved to he Gen nett to make room for the "Knicker bockers" who go into the house for the one night.

THE PEX.NV CLUB, The proceeds of the opera Pow hatan under the auspices of the Penny club go to one of the most deserving charities in this city. The club has done an immense amount of good in this city, and has done it in so quiet a way that few but those dirtctly in-; terested ktow at aU its magnitude They have been in existence for 2 1 v- ars In that time they have askc d little from the public outside of their own membership and their own im-, mediate friend-hips, and yet in that time they have helped to clothe and keep in school 1,000 needy children. This ba? been their object; but out- side of that they have bought coal, paid rent and supplied clothing and food to many needy people. Last year they furnished 150 suits of un derclothing to needy people, which is just one item. Their Christmas dinner to poor children, all being welcome, is an annual event in the lives of the poor of this city. On this account the opera tickets ousrht to go with a rush. A t the same time the show is going to be worth much morn than it costs. It is eriven by the bst talent we have in Richmond, drilled by a fine drill master, and is at the Gennett, with all accessories of orchestra and costumes. "When We Were Twenty-One" is to be here soon and ought to do business. It has been a favorite in many towns that resemble Richmond in their show likings. The Girl with the Auburn Hair who was such an attraction at Chicago last season is at the Masonic temple there and as great an attrac tion as before. She now carries two cars of scenery and a complete church organ for her act. Melville & Stetson and George Evans are there too, this week. No one here seems to know any thing about it, but their press agent still insists that Innes' band is com ing here this winter, in their own special train. They start out im mediately a'ter their Buffalo engage ment. The train will consist of sleepers, parlor and observation car, and a dining car.
