EX-CONGRESSMAN HEPBURN The Sioux City Journal of a week ago last Sunday contained a most ex haustive review of the life of Ex Congressman Hepburn. The occasion of the writeup was the fafct that he had just passed his eightieth birth day and still finds himself hale and hearty and a candidate for at least several years more of usefulness on earth. The account of his life goes into the history of his ancestors far enough to develop the fact that they were men and women of strong mental at tainments and ambitious to win their way in life, and it is no surprise that Mr. HenJiurn should have turned out to be an extraordinary character. He came to this state in its early history and soon identified himself with the movements intended to develop it, and make it what it is today, one of the leading states in the union. He soon became one of the recognized leaders among the other giants who lived in those days. His associates were such men as Grimes, Dillon, Price, Kirkwood, Harlan, Allison, Wilson and Gear, and he lived to see the efforts of these great men crowned with the highest success. He attained distinc tion in the legal profession first in a local way in southwestern Iowu and later by being called into other sec tions of the state and even into the other states of the union. In 1881 he was elected to congress, where he served with distinction until the wave of populism surged across the country, when he was supplanted in his congressional work by Major Anderson, whose experience and rep utation in the field of legislation were short lived. Mr. Hepburn, after serv ing with distinguished honor as so licitor of the treasury, was again elect ed to congress, where for twenty-two years he served as one of the leaders in that body. His career as a con gressman was marked by independ ence of thought, clearness of concep tion and ability as an orator. For many years he filled the position of chairman of the important committee on foreign and interstate commerce, and during the period he had the satis faction of reporting from his commit tee practically all of the reform legis lation which was passed during Theo dore Roosevelt's administration. There never was a day while he was in congress that he did not have at home a coterie of small fry bent on defeating him, either for renomi nation or for the election after nomi nation, but his magnificent record of accomplishment at the national capi tal was such that his prestige carried him through, notwithstanding local op position. Mr. Hepburn, during his whole career, was a strong believer in the republican party and while there may have been times that on some matters he differed with his colleagues in the main he was steadfast in his belief in republicanism. It was the misfortune of his dis trict at last to turn him down and to send to congress in his place a demo crat, who was unable to accomplish any thing of moment for his country and who in comparison with Mr. Hepburn seemed of no importance. He, no doubt, wondered during his short ca reer in Washington why it was that the district should supplant a man of such commanding influence as Col. Hepburn for one with no experience in legislation or ability to carry him self to a point of prestige such as was possessed by his predecessor. This is not intended as a reflection upon his capacity or patriotism be cause he was a good man and perhaps as strong as any other man in the district save Mr. Hepburn himself The state of Iowa owes a debt of grat itude to men of the ability and patriot ism of Col. Hepburn, but it seems it is only after it is too late to express the gratitude which is owing such men that the people come to appreciate their work and the glory they have brought to the state. HUERTA'S REFUSAL TO RESIGN. If Huerta intends to resign as pres ident of Mexico he is concealing his purposes in an admirable manner. A few days ago it looked as if President Wilson was to have his way after all, and that Huerta would resign. The symptoms in this direction became so manifest that it was said that Huerta was seeking to bring up anew nego tiations with this country in order to find an opportunity where he could withdraw from the presidency with some semblance of honor. This re port was answered by Huerta himself, summarily dismissing one of his cab inet officers because he grew suspic ious that he was friendly to the United States and was listening to the argu ment of President Wilson that Huerta should resigp. Huerta says that President Wilson has no right or authority to dictate •j ri itt to Mexico as regards her internal af fairs or to say who can or cannot be the ruler in that country. The de mand that he resign has been met by absolute refusal and now it seems that the only way of getting rid of him is to maneuver in such a way with other nations as to keep hack his financial supplies. This plan may work out, but we predict that it will take some time to carry it out. In the meantime both President Wilson and Secretary Bryan are finding it difficult to ex plain why Huerta does not abdicate. It looks very much as though the ad ministration had undertaken a larger contract than it could carry out when it adopted what it called its Mexican policy. The policy has dveloped far enough to show that every faction in Mexico is opposed to the plan and that both rebels and federalists are prepared to resist any further encroachment on the part of the United States. Evi dently it is not the plan of President Wilsoh to use force to coerce Huerta to give up his office and as long as Huerta feels that such is the policy of our president he is not disposed to be frightened and will hang on to the of fice until he is forcibly ejected. We hope the democratic party will not be stranded on the question of how to deal w}th our neighbor on the south of us. One thing now seems evident and that is that the Mexican policy of the administration has proved a failure Our foreign policy is not gaining us any prestige since the peerless Bryan and our new president were given full swing. We became the laughing stock of other nations in dealing with the Japanese question and now we are not to derive anjr more credit with our Mexican policy. IOWA PRESS COMMENT. "It was a new experience for Sena tor Cummins to be snowed under,' says the Des Moines Capital. "If we go to war with Mexico will a commission be issued to Col. Roose \elt?" inquires the Cedar Rapids Re publican. "Senator Cummins is in bad with the democrats and can't ever expect a pleasant smile from them again," says the Pomeroy Herald. All Des Moines is waiting with breathless interest for the duel be tween Billy Sunday and the devil, says the Boone News Republican. "If you have plenty of money and want to loaf, go to California," says me Emmetsburg Tribune. "If you want a job you better stay in Iowa." "Isn't congress going to be able to adjourn in time to get in new milage for the new session, which convenes in December?" inquires the Cedar Rap ids Republican. "The best literature of the day is found in the newspapers," says the Alton Democrat. "It is good thought picturesquely and forcibly expressed in good language." The Lunlap Reporter, with its pro gressive tendencies favors Cum mings" for senator from Iowa. That's a new one to us. But most anybody will suit us next year except the pres ent incumbrent.—Logan Observer. "One wonders how the people of ths country would feel if conditions were reversed and Huerta would no tify President Wilson he must resign, and do it quick." says the Harlan Republican. In two weeks the hazards of the foot ball season will have passed, and anx-j ious mothers will have nothing to wor ry over but the dangers of skating onj thin ice and coasting on automobile infested streets. If you see it in the Register and Leader it may be so, and then again it may not be so. All depends upon the Character of the news and how it strikes the varying prejuduces of Iowa's Greatest Newspaper."—Car roll Herald. 'What will Tammany do now?' is says the Burlington Hawkeye. "It is not so important as to what it will do now as to what it will do in a year or two when the tiger crawls out of the jungle, recuperated and with a pres sing hunger gnawing at its vitals." The Burlington Gazette says that if William Jennings Bryan had an idea that he was to be the power behind the throne when Wilson was elected, he has every reason to feel now that he was mistaken. THE DENISON REVIEW, WEDNESDAY, NOV. 19, 1913. PECK AND HIS FAMILY AFFAIRS OM pect S/*ys we'll HAVfe "lb Be Hia/v/6 A loT of New hBlP THI^ FAU. fSa P£te GAES OUT WaMF fsl hiev uu^i vW/TH -Sv^eu yvomeN r^ey^weuL ipipN" Pur him AQove ir, "The more one studies the demo cratic victories in the election returns of last week, the more one is impres sed that the country is wholly satis ..ed with the democratic administra tion of Woodrow Wilson," says the Manson Democrat. The Onawa Democrat says that Sen ator Cummins is no longer taken ser iously. "Many of his old time follow ers," the Democrat continues, "are beginning to learn that he is first for Cummins, second for Cummins and then always for Cummins. His damn ing the present tariff law cannot be taken seriously by sensible men who have seen Senator Cummins damn a republican tarii with the same ve hemence." Well, what do you think of that? Senator W. S. Kenyon says that he is preparing to introduce a bill that will make it a criminal offence for any member of congress to serve on a political committee. Can it be that our senator has "it in for" our con gressmaan, the Hon. Frank P. Woods, who has been honored with the chair manship of the national congressional committee? If Mr. Woods were to be sent to the federal prison for ser vice on the committee he might Sul zerize the situation by running against Mr. Kenyon for the senate.—Carroll Herald. The Diplomatic Service. Our diplomatic service is in peril of becoming the object of the world's ridicule. Never in recent years was it more completely disorganized than at this moment. With a burst of righteous indignation, President Wil son and Secretary of State Bryan con signed the dollar diplomacy of the Taft administration to limbo, but sub stituted for it an era of peanut poli tics. Jealously democratic, they are displacing the seasoned diplomats of the past regime and paying their po litical debts by appointing men whose fitness for their high posts is merely a secondary, a passing consideration. It is even rumored that the secretar ial staffs of the embassies and the le gations, put on a civil service basis by Elihu Root when he was secretary of state, and composed of men who know the inside workings of our foreign poses, are to give way to the place men of Secretary Bryan and his chief. But these two are not entirely to blame. Ever since the time of the Jacksoinian administration, it has been a part of our political thinking and particularly of the democratic way of thinking, that one man is as good as another for any post in the govern ment, and the rotation in office theory was never more fully applied than in the diplomatic service. The people themselves, al! too ignorant of the great interests of the United States which are at stake in foreign lands have looked on with complacency while our most strategic diplomatic posts have been made the spoils of the party in power. As a result, Amer ican diplomacy, and in consequence the American nation, has been almost everywhere discredited. Our diplo mats simply cannot compete with the trained and mature ambassadors and ministers of other lands. A patriotic Frenchman has said with a certain naivete that his country reveals its soundness by flourishing in spite of its government.
