Te Democrats started out to wake

Last week -Senator Culberson at
tempted to create a-scnsatlon In New
York by reading from the stump a
letter the 'President-wrote, on Octo
ber 10, 1003, to Dr. -Shaw editor of the
Review of JRevlews, In which Mr,
iRooseveltueedthese words; "Private
ly, I f reely-say to you that I should be
delighted If Panatna were an lnde
. pendent State, or If It made Itself eo
at this minute; but for me to say o
publlcallywouldamountto Instigating
a revolt, and therefore I cannot say
It.1' Mr. Culberson, who attempted
to deceive his audience Into the belief
that he was reading to them a letter
then made public for the first time,
although it had, a month after the
Panama revolution, been furnished by
the President, to a newspaper man
and by him made, public, attempted to
argue from theipassagc quoted that
the President had fomented the
Panama revolution, but In this he
failed. The American public is too
intelligent to be-so fooled and in this
private statement of the President
they Immediately saw that the letter
demonstrated, .not that the President
was guilty of complicity In the
Panama revolution, but that be had
, absolutely refused to do anything
which could by any possibility be
taken as encouragement to the
projects of the revolution. It demon
trates that the President, no matter
what his private wishes were, could
not and did not take any ..part .what
ever In fomenting or encouraging the
Foiled In their attempt to make
capital out of this ancient letter the
ingenious Democrats, probably at tbe
instigation of the sagacious , Parker,
have spent several .thousand dollars
collecting evidence that .President
Roosevelt paid President- Marroquln
.of Columbus' 2S0Q00 out ,ai the
'secret fund" of the State Depart
ment to foment the Panama revolu
tion and to prevent itolielng.defcated
by Colombian troops. A iman named
Smythe was charged with this deli
cate, mission and he is expected to
.arrive, almost dally now, UuNewjYork
wlth the "proofs." Fortunately for
jSmythe Marroqulnlsdead and cannot
ideny the calumny. Of course tbe
iwhole story Is as untrue as it Is
ridiculous. Everyone who remembers
.the events antedating the revolution
remembers how earnestly President
Macroquln labored with his Congress
ito prevent tne rejection or tne uay
Jlorran treaty, how he warned the
Congress that Panama would revolt
and that by their greed they would
lose all, and how he deplored that Iobs
after it occurred, This is precisely
the style of roorback to be expected
Iron) Democratic headquarters from
"now until election day.
Perhaps tbe most ridiculous speech
that Parker has aiade during the
campaign was that he delivered at,
Esopus on the subject of the trusts.
Behind this speech' lay a powerful
pur. Representative William R,
Hearst had publlcally warned Mr,
'.Parker that his only'hope of success
lay in bis advocating tbe kind of
Social Democracy for. which Hearst
' and has various newspapers stand
aplops. "Mr, Parker must attack
jsts ix ne wouia win,"' ueciarea
it, Accordingly Parker at-
tfatUcfe on, the trusts
declared that the common law-oflered
a panacea for the trust evil. Now he
comes out with the statement that
the trusts are premltted to violate
the law and that they are contributing
to the Republican campaign fund,
Mr. Parker's common law panacea
meant Immunity for the trusts, as d'd
his New York Democratic platform,
which declared that "Corporations
chartered by the State should be sub
ject to control 'f the State." His
change of attitude, as has been well
intimated by Senator former Attorney
General Knox-, '"smacks of the des
peration of despair."
Speaking -of Parker's fulm I nation,
Senator 'Knox said, "It is astonishing
that Mr. Parker should have the
temerity '.to throw stones at the Re
publican party on the trust Issue
'when 'Che men who conducted the
campaign for the nomination and
who are now conducting thcca'mpalgn
for His election represent these very
corporations which be affects to de
nounce, or else, owe thei? ipollttcal
strength to the contributions they
fcave received from them ln the past
For expect to receive frosi'them In the
future. One and all tbey 'owe their
whole power In politics 'to the Inti
mate connection they have establish
ed between the management of cor
porations and the 'management of
public business. Mr. 'Parker was
created by tttcm, would never have
been thought'of-etcceptf for then, and
has not now one -tihancc of success
save -what tfheyiglve him."

The death of Ex-Governor George
K, Nash, which occurred at the rest
dencc of his sonln-law, Wdrthlngton
E. Baboock, tn this city, 'yesterday
morning, makes three Ohio ex-gover
nors who have died suddenly within
the past year': Ex-Governor Charles
Foster was stricken While sitting In a
chair at the home di 'General . Kclfer
In Springfield, 'just'bdf ore the lnaug
uratlon of 'Governor Herrlck. Ex
Governor Asa S.'Bushnell was stricken
In a cab at the tfJnlon "Station on the
evening of that event, and after par
ticipating in the ceremonies, and now
ExGovernar "Nash' has fallen lifeless
tothe'Door-ofhlsbath room. There
are'only two living ex-governors, Jas.
K. Campbell and 'Joseph B. Foraker,
of 'the three deceased, while all were
men 'df high -standing, none stood
'higher 'than the last.
'On'thc ere of the last week of the
campaign, tntngs are livening up
Domc-Tlt-State headquarters. Repub
lican Chairman Dick says that 'only a
landslide can defeat Roosevelt this
year, and bases his prediction on tbe
Congressional election of 1004. Demo
cretic Chairman Garbcr says that 'he
will give out his estimate and pre
dictions on Sunday before election,
and that up to tnat time he will pre
serve silence. Other Democrats are
claiming that in the State of 'Ohio
'they will carry the 17th, 13th, Cthand
4th Congressional districts sure, they
also have strong hopes of the 35th,
Gth and 12th, making seven Demo:
cratlc Congressmen from Ohio, which
with anticipated results from other
State, will give them a majority of
the House of Representatives. The
Republicans claim that the 12th will
be redeemed, and that the 15th and
0th are In no danger. The Pcohlbi
tlonlsts expect to draw largely from
the silver Democrats and uiauy new
recruits from the Republicans, but
wc have not heard that they expect
to elect any one. Next Tuesday even
Ing, "Uncle" Joe Canon and J. Adam
Bcdc will address tbe voters of Frank'
lln county. The meeting Is under
the charge of the Bilckeye Club,
which Is an assurance that it will be
a howling success.
The news of the indictment of
Captain Aaron Wagoner by a Summit
county grand jury, came as a surprise
to the captain's numerous friends In
this city. The captain was president
of the board of managers of the Ohio
:pcnltentlary, and had resided In the
executive residence at the Institution
since tue.death of Warden Hershey
His health has been very bad for some
time, and be was barely able to be
about the prison offices. When he
was summoned lo, appear before the
grand jury at Akron, ihe furnished
the affidavit of the prison physician
that he.was unable to make 'the trip.
Later his health improved somewhat,
and after the sheriff of Summit coun
ty came after him be went back to
Akron and appeared before the grand
jury with the following result; He
was admitted to ball in the sum of
$2,000 on each .count, of which there
are four. The alleged crimes areiin
connection .with the Akron Savings
uauK xauure, wnicn occurred a year
ago In July, and of which Captain
Wagoner was cashier at the time.
What is wrong at the, penitentiary?
Thomas Hale, a life prisoner from
Hamilton county .died Sunday night,
and the penitentiary officials, who
ought to know believe that he was
murdered, and that the medium used
was opium, administered by a fellow
convict. Ha.le was known as a bad
man and had a host of enemlesamong
the other prisoners. When taken
from his cell to the hospital ward,
Monday, two large knives were found
on his person. If proper discipline Is
maintained at the big prison, how Is
It possible for a convict to obtain and
conceal such weapons' and Jjqw Is It
possible for one to obtain sufficient
opium to kill a fellow prisoner, or any
In fact? another unpleasant feature
about the case Is that the prison
physicians falted to diagnose the case
properly, thought that he was" sham
ming, and laboring under that Im
pression, tried the "water cure" on
him, and other refined means of tor
ture, to make his last hours pleasant.
On the day of Hale's death, the
Cuyahoga county probate court re
ceived cyldcnce that Albert English.!
an Insane convict, in'for 14 months,
had received 17 applications of the
"water cure" and 1700 lashes, and the
prison officials admit the truth of this
testimony. These torments were in
flicted upon a man who had been ad
judged mentally unsound and there
fore irresponsible. It is to be hoped
that "the pew Warden, Gould, will
Inaugurate some much needed re
forms.fi. Th50th annual meeting of the
Qrder.of Kaitefn' ta'r came to a close '
Thursday evening in Schenck's hall,
with the Installation of the newly
elected officers. The next meeting
will Ha held at Toledo the last Wed

Hardly a vcar goes by without a new
member of this vast family llathlng
out for a few months only to sink into
oblivion. How shall the astronomer
be able to say that such a star Is real
ly new and not one of the already ex
isting thousands? The earliest known
method of cataloguing the stars was
by means of the constellations. These
are portions of the sky bounded by lr
regular outlines which have nothing
to do with the grotesque figures so
common to patent medicine advcrtls
ing. The boundaries of these constel
lations all touch like the boundaries
of the states of our country, in fact,
the constellations are an almost ex
act analogy to the states of the Un
ion. kacn constellation contains a
number of starsand these are given
the letters of the Greek alphabet in
order of the brightness followed by
the name of the constellation. Thus
Alpha Lyra: is the brightest, Bita
Lyra: tbe next brightest star of the
constellation Lyra:. To carry the an
alogy still further wc might call Cin
cinnati, Alpha Ohloensls, Cleveland,
Beta Ohloensls. and so forth.
Of course such a method will not
answer the purposes of modern as
tronomy. So wo now locate each star
by Its right ascension and declina
tion. The right ascensions corre
spond exactly to longitudes on the
earth's surface and declinations to
latitudes, the Greenwich of the heav
ens being the Vernal Equinox or first
point of Aries. The first to carry out
this plan on any extensive scale was
Argelander, at the Bonn Observatory,
who also determined approximately
the right ascension and declination
of some 350,000 stars and also added a
number to give their brightness. He
divided the sky Into etrlps one degree
wide and arranged each star In this
strip In order of Its right ascension.
He also made large maps upon which
he located tbe stars of his catalogue
accurately to the scale. This work is
now being done over, but with a much
greater degree of accuracy, a number
of observatories co operating ; when
finished the catalogue will consist of
fourteen large quarto volumes. Pho
tography has been called into service
and maps arc now being made with Us
aid which will show stars several mag
nitudes fainter than those shown by

Salt in Mandamus Brought In Com-
monPleas Court Against the

cation, On Tuesday Moses H, Jones, a col
ored attorney from Dayton, O,, filed
a suit In mandamus in the Common
Pleas Court against the Hlllsboro
Board of Education that will do away
with our separate schools for white
and colored children If successful, as
it is supposed to be simply a teat case.

Ing, and after the said child had at-
tendeu school tor a period ot one week
during the present school year, she
was required by the Superintendent
of said schools, acting under and by

admission to the same, and notified
her that If she desired to avail her

The bill to endow agricultural col

agricultural experiment stations was
introduced many years ago by a Re
publican senator, Morrill, of Maine,
and was passed by a Republican Con
gress and signed by a Republican
President. These colleges and ex
periment stations have been of im
mense benefit to agriculture. They
owe their establishment to the party
that "docs things."

The platform on which Theodore
Roosevelt stands reiterates the time-
honored republican principle In favor
of fostering home industries in order
that American workmen may be
steadily employed and well paid. The
Democratic platform Is verbose and
evasive, but, sifted of all Its plati
tudes, It simply reiterates the Demo
cratic hostility to any tariff that will
protect American Industries.
