There are those *Who abuse the animal—others who have an inherent dislike for him— many more that love him for his hon est affection. "Like me, like my dog," Is an adage as old as the hills—and many men are likely to assault the «wan who kicks their pet canine more qaickly than if kicked themselves. Many tributes have been paid to the loyalty and devotion of pet dogs— many articles written on the heroism Of the animls In protecting their mas ter's life at the sacrifice of their own— and of their intelligence In the pre •ention of loss of life. Standing out from all the rest and in language that makes it a classic—is tile tribute paid by the late Senater teat of Missouri to affectionate pets. -^The senator was called upon by a V ftiimble friend to prosecute a man who had wantonly slain his friend's dog. His client sought nominal damages. When the eloquent Mlssourian con s. eluded his address there was scarcely dry eye in the assemblage and the Jary—Instead df bringing in a verdict ftr a cash value for the canine—want itfl to convict its slayer of murder in the first degree—and have him hanged on the spot. A part of the Missouri senator's address was as follows: "Gentlemen of the Jury—The best friend a man has in this world may turn against him and become his ene my. His son or daughter that he has feared with loving care may prove un grateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust Krith our happiness and our good name, »ay become traitors to their faith The money that a man has he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps when he needs it most. A man's repu Ration may be sacrificed in a moment If Of ill-considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees V to do us honor when success is with Us may be the first to throw the stofte of malice when failure settles its cjoud upon our heads. The one ab 0 solute, unselfish friend that man can 1 have in this selfish world, the one that k never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his f:'4og. "Gentlemen of the Jury, a man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he can be near his master's side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prinoe When all other friends desert he re i1'mains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces he is as con Stant in his love as the sun in its Journey through the heavens. If fort line drives the master forth an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless i- the faithful dog asks no higher prlvi lege than that of accompanying him to guard against danger and when the *. last scene comes, and death takes the master in its embrace, and his body is ^'laid away in the cold ground, no mat ter if all other friends pursue their Way, there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad but open in alert 5" watchfulness, faithful -and true even /=.Unto death.". Wr THE STANDARD OIL CASS. ^The U. S. supreme court vouchsafed y&o explanation of why it refused to re *lew any of the questions decided by i Abe qj»cuit court of appeals at Chicago wv ayywua ,v 'v v- 4- 'r?-' in the case against the Standard OU Co. of Indiana for accepting rebates from the Chicago A Alton Railroad Co. That It should refuse seems unfortu nate for there were at least two iim portant question* Involved which can* not be regarded as- authoritatively determined. The circuit court held in effect that persona or corporations accepting re bates were not bound to know what the lawful scheduled rates weri, but the prosecution must prove intent to violate the law. This comes near making conviction impossible in most cases and if evidence is admitted .and effect is given to it in acordance with the Grosscup opinion, the chance of conviction in another trial of this caae is at least beyond the range of proba bility. It was also held that the num ber of offenses is to be determined, not by carloads or separate shipments, but by the actual acceptance of the rebate payments on the settlements made. This would virtually put the limit of penalties under the control of the of fending parties, says The New Tork Journal of Commerce. There is a prospect of the whole caae "fizzling out," as the result of a weak start by the prosecution, a sensational trial and extravagant sentence by Judge Land is, a strained decision by the circuit court of appeals, and a re fusal of the supreme court to pass upon the crucial questions involved. There seems to be little chance of bringing this caae to a successful termination for the government, and its failure is likely to have an undesirable effect up on the public mind. AMBITIOUS BURKE. The suggestions of Governor Burke that the senatorial election features of the North Dakota primary law should be changed to select men—re gardless of party—causes some mirth over the state. It is possible that the governor sees in such a law—his only hope of eyer reaching the senate—hut. his attempt to saddle a measure like the Oregon primary law on North Da kotans will scarcely meet with success. There appears to be no necessity for a republican legislature electing a demo crat to the U. S. senate. The suggestion of Governor Burke did not strike a responsive chord in the heart of the editor of The Minne apolis Journal, who comments as fol lows: Governor Burke of North Dakota recommends in his message that a senator be immediately elected by the legislature in accordance with the pri mary law, and that the law be amend ed to provide for the election of sen ators- by direct vote, "the candidate receiving the highest vote to be chosen regardless of politics," The "regardless of politics" must mean without regard to the politics of the legislators. Ordinarily, they elect senators of the same politics as a ma jority of the Joint session. When they this, they please themselves and do follow the constitution of the United States. When they choose a senator who has already been in effect elected by another method, they abdicate their constitutional rights and merely regis ter a decision previously made. There may be no unconstitutional feature about a law under which the people by their votes give advice to the legislature, but when an attempt is made to give binding effect to such pledges, it is a question at once wheth er the act is constitutional. When the constitution was made, the manner of the selection of the congress was thoroughly discussed. The result was that while the selection of .repre sentatives was committed to the people the principle of mass voting was re jected so far as the selection of sen ators is concerned. What we are at tempting to do now is to reduce the se lection of senators to the same basis as the selection of representatives without changing the wording of the constitu tion. The desire for this change may be best described as an impulse of enthu siasm. It is "vox populi vox del" carried to an extreme. The objection raised to the election of senators by the legislatures is an ob jection mainly to the character of the legislatures. They have made mis takes. They have sometimes been carried away by extreme partizanship. They have at times been suspected of corruption. But are the people never carried away by extreme partizanship, and are they always free from the cor ruption, not of money, but of the dem agogue who poisons them with false cries and fallacious pledges? Meanwhile, it is better to respect and observe the constitutional provisions and safeguards. tar it isn't always cold la North Da kota. ttr Old Boreas was rat&et consider ate to wait till after the holidays. gr in your work of or PII today don't for get the men and women -of tomorrow.

January A ride on an N. P. passenger train between Fargo and Grafton with a two hours' stop at Detroit the day be fore Christmas ia a sort of prepara tory school for a person who intends to go into the observation business as a means of earning a livelihood. The local train which left Fargo at 9 a. m. on that day was crowded to the glass doors, and what people didn't get on at Fargo got on at Dilworth and the engineer had to take slack vut of the train before he could start. People who were not going home for Christmas were going home anyway and all decided to go on that train, and as the company hadn't been In formed of their intention there wasn't seats enough to go around and many able bod fed passengers stood in the aisles and vestibules and greeted the conductor and brakemao with banter ing remarks, which the trainmen took as standing jokes and kept on about their business and said nothing about the walking being good. While the conductor was arguing the point with a woman who had marked down her ^-year-old son to for the holiday trade, the train rolled into Winnipeg Junction and the brakeman called out the station and informed al! passen gers going north to "change cars." It was 10 o'clock and no change would occur until 2:45. Sometimes two or three passenger trains are in Winni peg Junction at once and then main street, which is the depot platform, is crowded with people, dodging trucks loaded with new mown calves and large busy looking trunks. It is an noying to have a large trurfk with brass trimmings filled with cast iron toys and hard boiled shirts, leave the flock and fall on your foot or other members of your family. I can see very little change In the place in the past ten years except that there are The New York Tribune, with refer ence to the resolutions on labor in terests passed by the Federation council in Philadelphia, and which Wore printed fh»tfeis column a few weeks ago: "r xbor leaders are qeoted as hav ing said that if the resolutions adopt ed by the Philalelphia council may be assumed to indicate the real attitude of the churches toward the working men, there is nq longer any difference of opinion between ie church and labor, that the workingmen will wel come the co-operation of the Christian churches, and that they will uphold the churches in their efforts along so cial lines. Church leaders say that the great majority of the individual churches of all denominations stand ready to put the principles enunciated by the federal council." A prominent New York minister, J. H. Holmes, of the Church of the Mes siah, takes advantage of the centenary of Darwin'B birth to preach a series of sermons on Evolution and Some Problems of Religion. It is evident that the progressive part of the church stands in a very different attitude to ward modern science than that which was dominant a few decades ago. Now the Salvation Army comes to the help of Trinity parish of New York with an offer to take up the mis sionary and institutional work in Var ick street, if allowed the free use of St. John's chapel. Between the pro tests of the leading public men of .'he country and the offers of assist ance from the poorest of the poor, wi.h one of America's leading poets arraigning it in flaming dithyrambs, and the whole country expressing un complimentary opinions with Ameri can freedom, Trinity parish finds its position growing increasingly unpleas ant. Mrs. Russell Sage has donated 8500, 000 to the Amercan Bible society, on the condition that $500,000 additional shall bo secured witbin the year.

The depot re mains in the same place, or there abouts the company's coal burns as freely as it did In the '90'a and tho doors assist the windows in letting In the light. The principal industries at the Junction are changing cars and asking questions. The patient agent allows each person nine questions and two answers, when they are politely asked to move on, which their train has already done. Having spent part of a day there before (and If you are fairly observing you can take in the points of interest in that time) I paid the conductor 42 cents and went on to Detroit, where I shook hands with the landlord and engaged dinner at tho Minnesota House, a full grown hotel. It seemed rather quiet around Detroits which is a summer town it is aiso there in the winter, but guests that come to bathe in the lakes and kill mosquitoes and sand flies, go home in the winter and use coal stoves instead of camp life to keep warm by. Noth ing more exciting occurred during my wait at Detroit than the landlord buy ing a load of wood which a man had hauled in from the reservation. While the landlord was out measuring th« wood the* bar tender kept his eye on the office but no business appeared, although later a child fell down stairs and broke an arm of a China doll above the elbow. After dinner I re turned to the new N. P. depot, which has lately been completed at Detroit and shows up very fine. But the en gineer on the train going to Grafton didn't seem to see it and he pulled right by it to the water tank In the second ward, where the passengers followed it as fast as possible so as not to annoy the trainmen. We then went to Grafton, where we arrived on Christmas eve. 1 I r! 'Uu- ly Father has lost no timt in sending large sums to the scene of the dis aster, and has opened a hospital with in the Vatican, where he himself will be able to visit and console the sick. He has given orders to all bishops and priests in Italy to do all possible in giving help wherever help is needed. His holiness is greatly gratified by the assistance coming to him from the Catholic clergy and laity of the United States." Three hundred beds will be installed in the Vatican hospital and the pope himself bears all the expense. It was hi earnest desire to leave the vaticari in person for the scene of the disaster but his physicians refused to allow it. The sight of the venerable pope, leav ing the Vatican, notwithstanding all the opposing tradition and the serious practical difficulties for the sake of alleviating distress, would have been both moving and sublime. His earn est desire to do so, joined to the sending of high ecclestical officials and his other practical measures, must still more endear him to the virll, both Catholir and Protestant. Criticism upon the Emmanuel move ment is growing. Leading Boston physicians who had expressed them selves as not unfavorable to the ex periment as at first conducted, are now Btrong in their opposition to the work in its present scope and method. There is a w'de expression of regret "that clergymen, without adequate preparation are assuming responsibili ties of a kind that physicians are not onsidered qualified to assume until after years of study and training. The question is whether the best inter ests of the community are really being served by this movement, and in my opinion," says Dr. J. J. Putnam, "this is not the case.' Rolla Corresj-ndenee.
