The advocacy of government owner
ship of the railroads by Mr. Bryan has
stirred up a storm of protest through
out the south. Not only is that section
still thoroughly wedded to the idea of
state's lights, and therefore opposed
to an enlargement of federal power,
but the plan of government ownership
has touched one of the modern idols
of the south.
Gradually the adoption of jim crow
cars has been extended until nearly
every southern state now has a law
requiring the transportation of whitt,
and colored people in separate
coaches. No law save those which pre
vent what the south terms negro
domination, has been more ardently
favored by the southern democrats
than those preventing the interming
ling of the races while traveling.
If the railroads were placed un
der federal control, under the provis
ions of the freedman amendments, the
negro would be entitled to the same
privileges as the whites, and in as
much' as the federal government is
superior to those of the states, the
latter in the south would be unable to
enforce their doctrine of jim crowiem
upon the public. The only lines where
separate coach plan could be enforced
would be those under the regulations
of the- states, which according to Mr.
Bryan's plan would include only those
exclusively engaged in business with
in the state.
The. south has always been account
ed solidly democratis and no ques
tions asked. But never since slavery
days has the south been brought face
to face with a question which goes to
the very core of southern sentiment. It
could swallow the free silver proposi
tion principally because it bad been op
posed by the, republican party. It was
willing to be led to the battle with
Imperialism emblazoned on the banner
of their political faith because it was
anti-republican. They were even will
ing to return to the advocacy of gold,
for it did not touch any of their local
But when one of the things which
the south believe in next to its re
ligion is advocated by the party which
has always claimed its allegiance, it
is doubtful if even the hatred against
the opposition party would prevent
many of the more radical of the south
erners from supporting the ticket and
in all probability breaking the solid
south so far as the democracy is con
Bryan has in all probability in his
desperation to find an issue around
which he could rally the divided and
forlorn democracy, made the greatest
political blunder of bis life, one which
his eloquence cannot explain away and
which his party zeal will not offset.
James J. Hill is nothing if not prac
tical. He is possessed of what is us
ually designated as common sense. He
does not indulge in'day dreams or plan
wild schemes unless there is a strong
possibility of making them materialize.
His recent speech at the Minnesota
state fair bristled with suggestive
points which, were he not engaged in

high rank as a philosopher. In fact he

Sentiment to be Inculcated.
"Lot reverence of law be breathed by
every mother to the lisping babe that
prattles in her lap: let it be taught in
the schools, seminaries and colleges
let it be written in primers, spelling
books and almanacs let it be preached
from pulpits and proclaimed in legis

is a student of practical economics and
his speeches are as full of thought
along these lines as an egg is full of
He showed in that speech that the
great socialistic danger in this country
lies in the increase of the importance
of the cities over the country. In
1SS0 the proportion of people engaged
in agricultural pursuits as compared
with the entire population was 44.3
per cent while in 1900 it had shrunk
to 35.7. This condition was brought
about in the face of the fact that mil
lions of immigrants had reached our
shores during the decade mentioned
and had been assimilated by our
The trouble is that too much of the
population is congregating in tin cities.
The efforts to give employment to
the people of the cities according to
Mr. Hill has resulted in an over
development of our manufactures.
And so long as there remains a market
for the products of the factories that
branch of our industries will prove
profitable. But the danger lies in the
fact that competitors may arise who
will be able to destroy our enterprises
through the medium of cheap lkbor.
It is then that Mr. Hill believes the
land will become the great supporting
base of our population. According to
his figures the arable lands in this
country, without taking another acre
from the forest, should support a
population of 650,000,000, or practically
eight times what it is now.
But on this basis Mr. Hill must in
clude the proportion of people engaged
in manufacturing pursuits which pre
serve the balance between the two
great industries. It must be admitted
that if all the population were en
gaged in agriculture there would be
no market for the products of the
farm, and conditions would revert to
what they were in savagery wherein
every man provided for his own wants
and did not attempt to engage in bar
ter which is the foundation of
modern commerce.
The eqilibrium must be preserved.
The west needs more manufacturies
to bring to it a class of nonproducing
people who cari consume the products
of the farm. The cities of the east are
becoming over-populous and the in
habitants correspondingly reduced in
opportunities and wealth. The one
thing which Mr. Hill did not suggest
and which is as important as the
preservation of the rural population,
is the need of preserving the ratio be
tween the cities.
With the opening of the city schools
on Monday will come the ever present
matter of adjusting the pupils to the
grades in which they properly belong.
This, of course is largely done in the
promotions, but the annoying ones are
those where parents are not satisfied
with the assignments of the children
and seek to have them changed at the
beginning of the year,
There is a certain amount of
justifiable pride in the desire of par
ents to have their children advanced
as rapidly as possible, and to have
them preserve their standing with
their classmates. But this should not
influence them in assisting the teach
ers and school officers in placing the
child in the grade where it will receive
the greatest good.
It is well in this particular to re
member that because the child ad
vances slowly in its classwork is no in
dication that it is not mentally as
bright as the ones who surpass it
in the presented course. The brightest
intellects of the world have been
mediocre in youth. They plodded and
laid the foundations for an education
broad and deep and when age had
matured the mind they were able' to
build upon that foundation an intel
lectual structure which could not be
Lincoln would not as a youth have
been able to compete with the boys of
the intermediate grades in the public
schools today, but he had developed
the power of concentration and ap
plication, and, upon them unconscious
ly built an education that has been the
marvel of the world. He hardly knew
the nature of rhetoric, but he had
made the fundamental principles of
the language a part of himself, and at
Gettysburg he delivered extemporan
eously, an address that has become
a classic, rivaling in grace, force and
polish the best studied efforts of the
greatest rhetoricians.
So it is with the child in the school
today. He may not rush from grade'
to grade like his classmate but in all
probability he is being better educated.
Do not then destroy his work by forc
ing him into a grade where he will
not be able to comprehend and master
the work merely to satisfy the pride.
There is more than the mere lust
for office in the recent movement of
William Randolph Hearst in his fight
for the nomination for the governor
ship of New York as the candidate of
the reform league. Hearst, is not so
much of a politician, but having the
money he has been able to gather
around him men of the highest in
tellectual ability, and it is their abill
ity which has given him the promin
ence he has acquired.
It is a fact well known t-j Hearst
that there is a constant alignment of
the members of political parties to
day. Men are freer to change their
political allegiance than ever before,
though the principles of parties are
preserved and the men who make and
apply those principles are true to
then). But there has developed all
over the country a great, class of rest
less voters who refuse to be perman
ently affiliated with any party, and who
claiming to be independent in politics,
are vet ever ready to join any new
Hearst seeing this and being certain
that as a democrat he can never reach
the presidency through other parties,
which is the goal of his ambition, is
seeking to gather around his standard
this independent class and out of it
to form a new party of which he
shall be the head and the recipient of
its favors.
If he can do this he will have a fair
chance to receive the nomination of
that party for the presidency. And
it is probable that he believes such a
party would be able to sweep the
country as the new republican party
did and that he would be carried on
the crest of this wave of popularity
into the presidency.
There is no danger from Hearst
now. The movement .indicated will
never occur because such an issue
is not born of a day but developed
through years, and must have back
of it some great condition. No such
condition exists. Genuine reforms are
not directed against temporary or
imaginary evils but against those like
slavery. There must be some founda
tion before they will attract the think
ing public. Hearst has nothing of
this kind behind his plan, and there
fore must fail.
It is now a matter of nearly two
thousand years since the .Master re
buked venality among the self-righte
ous, and his scathing words of con
demnation on that occasion are as
peculiarly applicable to the Heralu
outfit today as they were to those other
hypocrites of old:
"Ye blind guides, which strain at a
.gnat, and swallow a camel.
"Woe unto you, scribes and Phari
sees, hypocrites! for ye make clean
the outside of the cup and of the plat
ter, but within they are full of ex
cess and extortion.
"Woe unto you, scribes and Phari
sees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto
whited sepulchres, which indeed ap
pear beautiful outward, but are within
full of dead men's bones, and of all
"Even so ye also outwardly appear
righteous unto men, but ye are full
of hypocrisy and iniquity."
Senator Hansbrough, /hrough his
daily newspaper, ha§ on various occa
sions accused the country press of the
state of being a set of grafters—
The above is a fair sample of the
silly and insane falsehoods which the
whited sepulchre is wont to employ
to serve its evil purpose. That the
statement is a lie pure and simple the
majority of the publishers of the state,
who are on The Evening Times' ex
change list, are fully apprised.
There is need of more residences in
this city even with the large num
ber which were built this year. Al
ready the demand is becoming equal
to the supply, and as the families be
gin to move to the city for the year at
the university, the experience of last
year will be repeated and dwellings
will be as scarce as ever. There are
more houses but there will be more
people to occupy them.
A large number of commercial clubs
are being formed in the cities through
out the northern part of the state."
Would it not be agood idea to begin
a campaign for the federation of all
the clubs in the cities which are in
dentifled with Grand Forks in building
up the commercial prosperity of the
northern half of the state?
The matter of paving the city has
been quietly put to sleep in both the
Commercial club and the city council,
and next year when it is necessary to
do the work the plans will need matur
ing. The time to plan is now, and
the time to work is next summer.
It is probable that the latest strike
at Goldfield attracted more attention
from the general public than any other
which has been made at that ioint
for years. It is also claimed that
the. mine was salted with something
like thirty thousand dollars.

Man About Town
Probably the most annoying pest the
editor has to contend' with is the in
dividual who imagines he or she is a
born reporter or correspondent and
who, at every opportuntiy, seeks to
break into print via the regular news
The Man has many of these artic
les' jokes and effusions handed him al
most dally.
Sometimes, indeed, a valuable- news
item is picked up in this manner.
Many good "tips" have been received
through the fondness of some un
known person to "write for the pa
But. for every service rendered there
are a dozen ocassions when the mat
ter submitted is just so much rot and
which accomplishes nothing other
than to worry "the editor.
The usual salutation is "Dear Mr.
Editor: Please print this ad for me."
Why do they say "ad?" Why can
not they say "item?"
However, here area few of the "ads"
received during the past few days. For
obvious reasons names and .places are
Mr. Blank Dash of was married
last Tuesday a week ago to Miss Mary
Youkno, the popular waitress at the
hotel of this place. Mr. Blank
Dash has been a long time the porter
for this hotel and it was this way
he met, wooed and won the affections
of his wife, who was then Miss Mary
Youkno. The young couple will con
tinue to live at the hotel, their places
being kept for them while they went
on their wedding tour.
A correspondent in Ramsey county"
has been bothered by chicken thieves.
He did not notify the police. Instead
he wrote as follows:
"Dear Mr. Editor: Please publish
the following, but do not use my
Mr. So-and-So. a well-known citizen
of Ramsey county, is mourning
the loss of several of his finest hens
and roosters. He doesn't blame any
body^ but suspicion points to
(here a man's name was given), and
unless those chickens are returned
there will be trouble.
Of course, it would be utterly out of
the question to print these communi
cations—common sense would forbid,
even were there no libel in laws in
North Dakota.
But the class more dangerous than
the well meaning, but mistaken, is the
wou^d-be joker who tries to use a
newspaper as a means of carrying
out his jokes (?).
Not long since the following was re
ceived, this being one of a lot, and be
ing reproduced merely to show to what
ends the dangerous pests will go. The
letter accompanying the "ad" read:
"Of course, there is not a word of
truth in this, but some of us-fellows
want to play a joke on a friend of ours
and when he sees the 'ad' in the paper
he will be as mad as blazes."
Guess he would—anyone would.
This is the "ad:"
a well-known citizen or
county, was arrested last
night for robbing 's grocery store,
being caught with his hands in the
cash drawer. The time was 3 a. m.,
and the arrest was only effected after
a running fight in which several shots
were fired, etc., etc.
The writer of this communication
was evidently a man of education and
intelligence. He was "evidently" so.
"Automobile Spine," is a new malady
with which a number of New York
auto owners are afficted. The disease
is somewhat more severe than "chaf
feuritis," which waB prevalent here
early in the summer and is due to ex
cessive chug-chugging, it is fair to
predict that as cloud pushing has be
come a pastime or a profession its
enthusiasts will develop, some strange
complaint, which the physicians will
dub "aeronaut's" or "balloonists liver."
A glimpse of ah auto party going down
Third street is enough to frighten one
into a certainty of having a severe at
tack of the "auto spine," for a fact
The man about town frequently runs
on to some one philosophically in
clined and today a certain office man
,unbosomed himself in the following
,which the Man took down in short
hand and prints for what it's worth in
his column. He said:
"Every business establishment has
a personage who is styled by the help
as the 'old man.' This person is the
head iof the place and in his hands lie6
.the destinies of the force, their future
and the size of the pay envelope on
Saturday night. JuBt why he is called
.the 'old man' will never be known for
the custom dates back to time immem
oriale. I often wonder if 'the old
man, generally speaking, realizes just
what a responsibility rests upon him
and always weighs his actions. Pos
sibly but not probable. The pathway
of 'the old man' is not always one of
.flowers. He undoubtedly has troubles
of his own the help know nothing of,
but—there is a difference in 'the old
man' in offices and the help learn to
love and respect or fear and dislike.
"Most 'old men' are gruff and blunt.
The successful ones are as a rule.
They have outlived the jolly period
when a manager or superintendent
thinks he must 'say pretty things to
the help in order to keep them feeling
,' ood. Life is just a plain business
proposition to him and from the care of
heavy business responsibilities he be
comes pretty well calloused to senti
mentality. Still, every 'old man' has
{lis weakness and an indifferent help
always seeks to locate it while the
legitimate worker minds his business
and saws wood.
"Some 'old men' make a mistake in
.assuming that It is poor policy to com
pliment the help when credit is due.
A little word of commendation is not
a bad thing and we all like it but the
old man* must be judicious in his dis
pensation of this for many can not
stand prosperity. The 'old man' has his
troubles, indeed, and he is a peculiar
character In business life, but usually
folding a strong position in the hearts
of those under him If he is on the
.square. If he is not, he will not be
'the old man' long in any business
Every now and then one runs across
an old soldier who can fib to beat the
band when it comes to telling war
tales. One veteran, who was a veterin
ary surgeon during the war, tellB the
Man that he was once sent upon the
field in the midst of a fierce fight
and had to cut bullets out of the horse
while the leaden pellets were raining
about like hall. The veteran'said he
escaped unhurt. Even at that some
.stock might have been taken in this
story, but he spoiled it by adding, "Yes,
sir, I was in that rain of bullets for
hours and was not even grazed, al
though horses were falling about me
all the time."

Stories of the Hour
Too Often.
A little girl who attends a Main pub
lic school has quite an idea of nobility,
as was evidenced by hey reply to her
teacher.- The class had been reading
about the king's family. The teacher,
wishing to inculcate, the correct idea
of royal descent, said: "Now, children,
if the king and queen had a son, what
would he be?" "The jack," was the
quick response.
Was Out Alright.
Bronzed by foreign suns, he entered
the dear old office of his colleague.
But the cashier's chair was vacant.
"Is Mr. "Smith out?" he asked anxi
oti8lly. I am an old friend, of his."
"No, sir" returned the clerk. "Mr.
Smith is not out. He won't be out for
16 years."
Here the clerk smiled grimly.
"The firm Is out, though," he went
on, "one hundred thousand, just."
Some Drinkers' Logic.
Russell Sage was much opposed to
drinking. 'He would often rail with
homely and humorous wisdom against
"Men drink," he said one day to a
broker, "because they are happy, be
cause they are sad, because they are
too warm, because they are too cold.
Is there any logic in that?
"When I see men drinking I think
of a little boy at the seashore.
"This little boy, at- play with his
bucket and shovel in the sand, sud
denly ran to the edge of an advancing
wave, and, scooping up a handful of
salt water and foam, drank it greedily.
'Oh. don't drink that!' said his
nurse. 'It will make you thirsty.'
'What if it does?' said he. 'There's
plenty more.'"

An Effective Tip.
A man who travels a good deal and
who recently visited San Francisco con
fides to "The Chronicle" of that city
his method of obtaining the utmost
service from waiters.
"Uusually when I arrive at a hotel,"
he said, "I take a |2 bill and tear it
in half. One half I give to the waiter
and the other I keep.
'Now, John,' I say, 'if everything
comes along all right, the other half
is yours if not, you don't get it.'
"Usually I -get the best of service
and the most marked attention. The
waiter always has his eye on the other
"I find this method to be the best I
ever tried."
Brave In Adversity.
On his sixty-eighth birthday, Andrew
Carnegie tojd this story:
"I like to see men cheerful in mis
fortune. I used to know a young
painter who was so poor he could not
afford to dress warmly enough in the
winter time.
"I met him one coldish day In Pitts
burg. He had on a summer suit of
blue serge, and the wind moulded the
suit to his limbs till the cloth clung
as if wet.
'I never wear an overcoat.' he said.
"'Never?' said I.
'No, never,' he repeated, laughing
"But what do you do in very cold
weather?' I asked.
'I run,' he answered."
The Maid and the Mummy Tonight.
Washington Stubbs, the principal
character in "The Maid and the Mum
my" is pursued by Trixie Evergreen,
an actress. Finally Stubbs in desper
ation, says: "I'll have to marry that
woman just to be ..In a position to get
a legal separation from her." The
troubles of this queer pair are only
one of the bits that go to make "The
Maid and the Mummy" such a perfect
musical play. This merry melange by
Richard Carle and Robert Hood Bow
ers will appear at the Metropolitan
Theatre tonight.
Manager Askin, of "The Umpire,"
rewards the lively "broilers" who play
the game of football in that entertain
ment, by bestowing a prize of $5 each,
on the members of the side which
scores the more points during the
week. This is not done as an inspira
tion for more enthusiasm in the con
test, since in that element it excefls
the "real thing but simply in the
way of appreciation for a really re
markable and difficult piece of work.
In this connection it Is interesting to
note that in the first fortnight of its
out-of-town tour "The Umpire" broke
eight records for high receipts, most
of them having been in the possession
of Miss Viola Alien, whose phenomenal
tour under Mr. Askin's management lr.
"The Christian" and "In the Palace of
the King," may be recalled.
Miss Laura Frankenfield, the young
star, who is to appear here at the
Metropolitan Theatre on Friday, Sept.
14, in her latest success, "A Daughter
of Colorado," a romantic comedy dra
ma, and which is a new play this sea
son, is another girl among the many,
who in recent years have come from
prominent families, who have succeed
ed and made a fine reputation in the
theatrical world. Miss Frankenfield
is a colege girl and from her early
childhood and all through her college
life, she was determined to make the
stage her life's work, and finally adopt
ed the stage for her profession. Here
tofore in Miss Frankenfield's career,
she has appeared In classic drama,
and the change this season to a west
ern and society play, will be a mark
ed contrast.
"A Daughter of Colorado" is a refin
ed story of love triumph over money,
which is rather a novelty in these days,
and is unfolded In a delightfully pleas
ing and unique tiianner. Tears and
laughter are crowdedd Into pretty
scenes, the comedy being of the quite
humorous sort, and interspersed with
witty and brilliant lines. The first
act Is laid in the foothills of Colorado,
at the Mosher homestead, or ranch,
which is the home of Molly Mosher,
the character which Miss Frankenfield
will portray, and as the curtain rings
on the opening of the play, the atmo-,
sphere of the "State of Sunshine" fair,
ly permeats the theatre.
A Grand Forks preacher, who in his
early days had charge of a small
church in southern Ohio, tells this one
on himself:
"The congregation was small and.
poor. We needed hymn books badly,
but there was no money at hand with
which to buy them. An agent for a
hymn book chanced along and I was
telling him our troubles and explain
ing the reason that we could not place
an order.
"Oh I can fix that up all right," said
the agent. "Our firm has a set of
books 4rhich we furnish to churches in
your financial fix. A little advertising
matter is slipped In ,and If you do not
object to this I will have the books
sent to you."
Admits Its Guilt
[Pembina Pioneer-Express.]
The Grand Forks Herald admits the
printing deal' as shown up by the
Times, sayB there was nothing very
wrong about it, and that the Times
was actuated by spite in making the
expose. Thein so as to prove that the
Times is wrong to be thus spiteful, it
proposes to print a series of editorials
to. show, what a bad man Mr. Hans
brough is, which looks as though the
Herald is just as spiteful as is the
Then An Several Others.
[Linton Record.]
The Gfand Forks Times, which un
earthed the printing steal of the
Grand Forks Herald in combination
with other firms, has now sprung a
new sensation. It publishes the affi
davit of a young lay formerly em
ployed by Walker Bros. & Hardy, of
Fargo, in which she avers that she
saw several hundred dollars of "per
centage" boodle paid by a member of
that firm to the then auditor of Rich
land county. If Walker Bros. &
Hardy are in that line of business, it
would be Interesting to know how
'many other county purchasing officers
throughout the state have been tarred
with the same stick. Twenty-three
years ago a young man named Thomas
Wright, who was traveling for a print
ing firm, told the writer in Bismarck
that he had to boodle a good many of
the county auditors of Montana and
Dakota before he could sell them
books and stationery. The scheme was
the same as that adopted by the
Fargo firm. The price would be
raised about 25 per cent, and the raise

The Stork Visits at Sank Center.
[Sauk Center Herald.]
Early Monday morning as Dr.
Charles McCracken was viewing the
beauties of nature that surround his
home on the Brooklyn side of our love
ly city and congratulating Himself that
Providence had cast his lot in such
pleasant places, he noticed a strange
object in the sky which he watched
closely for some little time, when ne
noticed that it gradually was ncaiing
the earth. Presently it appeared like
a huge bird carrying something in its
beak. The doctor grew excited as
this strange bird circled about dlrec
ly over his peaceful home and .great
was his surprise when with "many a
flirt and flutter" it alighted upon his
front porch and .proved to be a stork
with a suspicious looking bundle,
which it deposited at the doctor's fe?t.
"Is it a girr?" questioned the doctor,
but the bird had spread its huge
pinions and soared away. Lovingly
our genial doctor gathered up the
precious bundle and gave it into the
motherly arms of his beloved wife,
who exclaimed,. "Heaven has sent us
another beautiful little hi and there
spread over her face a look that only
comes at such a time. The little den
tist bumped the beam at eight pounds
and is as bright and winsome a little
fellow as one would wish to Bee.
Hearty congratulations aro extended
to the doctor and his estimable wife.
