The measure of the stewardship of a political party lies in the moral and industrial welfare of the nation. The. measure of the success of free gov ernment is likewise in the morals, health and prosperity of its people. When we come to weigh the admin istration of a political party in the balances we must weigh it with re spect to the whole country, having in mind the greatest good to the greatest number. We cannot weigh it with respect to isolated minority, -whose criticisms tainted with the flavor of natural political opposition and are political more than econom ical. Measuring up the republican party and its achievements by these stan dards the whole country will hardly complain of its stewardship. It is true there have been criticisms of the tariff by sections of the nation. But these criticisms are with respect to the "other fellow's" tariff and not with respect to the protective feat ures of the tariff that affect our selves. Some criticisms have come out of this state. But they are with respect to tariffs affecting industries that thrive in other parts of the Country- And having gained pro tection for our own interests, it Is all very well for critics to say we could have gotten along with free trade in agricultural products. If the tariff critics of this state want to find what the farming classes of this state think of free trade in agricul tural products, let them put forth candidates to stand for- the removal of the tariff from wheat, barley, eggs, hay, live stock and other agricultur al products. We shall then have a very clear issue, and one upon which state campaign may readily be waged. The trouble is that our tariff crit ics are not disposed to be fair in their criticisms. They will not admit what is true, that a tariff bill must Be framed by agreement and com promises and cannot be framed with sole reference to theory. Men are not so constituted. Communities are not so constituted. 'Nor would it be economically wise to bring about the condition of greatest cheapness in the price of products in this country, if that meant the sub stantial injury of our established in stitutions. There are better condi tions in this state when prices of farm products are reasonably high and firm, than when prices are weak and low, even though the low prices might mean cheaper foodstuffs to the consumer. For the consumer gains his livelihood through the prosperity ot other classes, and thus all circles ef business and trade are interde pendent. The St. Louis Globe Democrat in #peaking of this subject and the re lation of industrial conditions to the stewardship of a political party, has thjs to say: "On one point at least the entire country is in agreement with Mr. Taft. In Chicago yesterday, as In Boston two days earlier, the presi dent referred to the signs of ap proaching prosperity which were in sight. And everybody, Democrats a Republicans, Westerners and |il||f ^Basterners, concur in* this review. |^|?Secretary of Agriculture Wilson, K-|!^wno has Just gone to Washington V^MSmSXet a five weeks' tour of the west,diminutive .^3*»ys the crop situation was never £*fti#better than it is now.

Not always does the stock market reflect the actual trade conditions, but it does so at his moment The recent rise in most of the active shares is justified by the earnings of the railways and the industrial com binations, and by the work which is just ahead of the country's great industries. A great merger under the direction of H. C. Frick and the Mellon banking and trade interests is being formed either to fight the United States Steel Corporation or to ally itself with that combination. In this coalition many of the inde pendent steel mills of the country are said to be represented. This may or may not mean a contest with the steel trust. Wall street evidently has no fear of any harmful compe tition, for the trust's shares are ad vancing in price. On the other side of the Atlantic, as well as on this side, the reapproachment between the Morgan interests and those con trolled by the Harriman combina tion is having a bracing effect,, as it means peace where formerly there were frequent clashes. The present prospect is that the output of the iron and steel mills of the United States for the calendar year 1909 will be up to the 1907 mark, and be far above the highest figures of the past. The report that United States Steel is about to be listed on the Paris Bourse is revived, and it gets cred ence this time in quarters which discredited the story told a few months ago, when it was first start ed. Most of the steel mills of the country have more orders for work ahead of them at this moment than they had at any previous time, since the setback in October, 1907. Coincidental^ with this improve ment the treasury balance sheet be gins to tell a pleasing tale. The de ficit thus far in the present fiscal year is $24,000,000, as compared with $36,000,000 for the corresponding time twelve months ago. Treasury receipts from all sotirces are on the increase. This is due to the expan sion in trade and to the influence of the new tariff. It is now clear to the country that Senator Aldrich was correct when he said the Payne meas ure would yield more money to the government than did the Dingley act, Like every other republican, Mr. Taft is glad that the new tariff is giving a good account of itself. Along the whole line the business situation is improving. A more phlegmatic man than Mr. Taft would be justified in hailing the financial outlook with de light.lt insures a big victory for his party in the congressional campaign jOf 1910. This is a detail which is calculated to please every member of the party which is in control of the government. The old-fashioned re publican prosperity is dose at hand, as democrats/as well as republicans now realize. \j. After winning a big victory durinjpthe acute stage of the panic of 1907^)8, as the republicans did, it ought to be easy for them to carry the country a year hence, when all the Industrial conditions are fav orable. The congressional cam paign which comes in the middle of a president's term often brings dis aster to the president's party, but even the most sanguine of democrats sees on hope for his party in the ap proaching campaign. Already the re publicansJjave broken all the records in their uninterrupted succession of triumphs in congressional campaigns beginning with 1894, but it is clear that still another victory is in sight. Chew Liquid Food Too. The increased amount of liquids consumed during the summer months renders the following advice of Horace Fletcher of additional impor tance at this time of the year. The famous expert on foods claims at I I S SHOULD BE "CHEWED" —that is, insalivated—as well as solids. He says: "Adult man was not orig inally intended tc take his nourishment in a liquid form consequently all liquids hav ing taste, such as soup, milk, tea, coffee, cocoa and the various forms of alcohol, must be treated as sapid solids and insalivated by holding them in the mouth, moving the tongue gently, with straight np and down masticatory movements, until their taste be removed. "Water, not having. taste, needs ne inealivation and is readily accepted by the fauces." RECEPTION FOR A MONKEY. Mme. Zeagia Introduced te Lenox Pel That Sleep* In Gold Cage. Camellon Zegglo, lady in waiting in the court of Queen Marguerite of Italy, gave a reception at the Aspinwall, la Lenox, Mass, the other evening to honor of her marmoset monkey. So ciety was out la force to meet the creature, which rested light ly on the arms of its mistress. The monkey, which was bought in South Africa for $1,000, sleeps In a gold cage which cost $5,000. The marmoset acquitted himself cred itably, looking grave when be should and chattering affably at the attempt ed pleasantries of the guests. The at fair was such a decided success that ft fs understood that an effort win he made to prevail upon Mme. Zegglo to accept an invitation to a reception in Newport In honor of the monks? which has mtaf^ed with royalty. GRAIN INSPECTORS WITH COMMISSION KERNAN GIVE3 BOARD SOME VALUABLE INFORMATION ON WORK. Newly Appointed inspectors Met With the Board Will Approve Bonds Thursday. The board of Tailroad commissioners met at the capital yesterday, in con junction with the grain inspectors ap pointed to represent the Interests of the grain producers and shippers of the state at the terminal markets at Duluth, Superior and Minneapolis. Mr. J. E. Kernan, who nas represented tlie state at Superior as a member of the joint board of inspectors, was present, as was H. C. Brown of Brhn made, and T. J. Clifford of Mohall, who were recently appointed by Gov. Burke to represent the state on the Minnesota board of appeals, who are to divide their time between Duluth and Minneapolis. The entire afternoon was devoted to a discussion of the weighing, grading, docking, mixing and handling of grain at the terminals and other matters of Interest to the grain trade. Mr. Kernan gave the board a great deal of information relating to the handling of grain at the terminal at Superior, and spoke highly of the Wis consin laws regulating the trade. The Wisconsin board of inspectors have have adopted a new grade for wheta which is to be known as Norht Dako ta No. 1 hard, with a vie wof pro tecting the good name of the North Dakota product and the building up of a demand for the real hard variety of wheat native to this state, and which has been used at some of the terminals to mix with wheat of infer ior grades, in order to advanc etheir grades and value on the market. In order to secure this new grade, wheat must weigh 59 pounds to the measur ed bushel, and contain at least 75 per cent of blue stem wheat, and must be of a bright color and be sweet and clean. The fact that the Wisconsin com mission has adopted a special grad ing for North Dakota wheat will prove to be of great value to the grain producing class fthe state, who will be encouraged in the selection of bet ter seed and the propagation of a higher standard of wheat and its maintenance. ,7 The board of railroad commission' ers of this state formuated a system of grades in August and it Is likely that the board will adopt the'new grade adopted by the Wisconsin conv mission, at their meeting today. Messrs. Kernan, Brown and Clif ford returned to their duties last night and from the interest manifested in the discussion held in the office of the commission, it 1B safe to predict that the nterests of th estate wll be close ly watched and safe-guarded by its representatives at the terminals. The commission took an adjourn ment last evening, until 9 o'clock this morning, when the matter of approv ing elevator bonds and other business will be taken up. PLANS ARE MADE FOR SPECTACULAR FLIGHTS New York, Sept. 22.—A flight from Governors Island across the lower bay and around the statute of liber, ty probably will be the first aviation event during the Hudson-Pulton cele bration. Glenn H. Curtiss, winner of the International Aviation contest, announced today that he would at tempt to make his flight as soon as possible after he has assembled his machine. Wilbur Wright who has his ma chine almost in flying shape, met Curtiss today for the first time since the latter returned from his Euro pean trip, Curtiss will make no flights in the wind of more that five or six miles but it is likely that Wright may at tempt flights in a higher wind if it is from a favorable direction. Wright's contract with the celebra tion company requires a flight of one hour duration, while Curtiss has the option of making any flight which his judgment dictates. FOUGHT A DRAW.
