—Abraham Lincoln.
'Men in this state who put party
principles above public plunder and
patriotism above personal spite, are
giving serious consideration to the
future of the republican party. They
are men who have been identified with
the development of the state since the
days it put off its territorial togs and
donned the dress of statehood. They are
the men who have never entered into
illegal combinations to rob and plun
der the state. Moreover, they are re
publicans whose party fealty cannot
be bought with a mess of pottage nor
traded on the political stock markets
for cash.
There is no need to deny that the
party has been ruptured and that the
democrats of the state mean to take
advantage of the conditions and build
up a party which heretofore has been
unable to secure any considerable fol
lowing, and which has been unable to
influence the selection of either mem
bers of the national legislature or the
national executive. Many of the dem
ocrats are determined to take the
credit of the recent victory as a party
one and turn it to party advantage.
They advocate the building up of a
party which will be able to stand by
itself. Whether the entire wing of
the republican party which supported
the democrats in the late election will
force themselves upon the democrats
remains to be seen.
If the democratic morning daily of
this city is to be taken as the spokes
man of these people, they will remain
with the democratic party entirely.
It says
It is a fact that considerable dam
age was done in the recent election,
(but it was well done, and should not
be repaired.
From this wr are to understand
that the morning democratic daily be
lieves that the 'tiptuie in the republi
can party was 'he best thing that
could happen to ir. This is proven by
the statement in the same editorial
from which the above excerpt is tak
en, that the "republican party has not
been damaged." In other words, accord
ing to this spokesman of the new wing
of the democracy, the partial success of
the democratic party in the state

the majority oi Governor Burke the
votes which he 1 ??e v? I as a personal
compliment and which were given not
because he was the democratic candi
date, but because of the individual
friendship of the voter, and the total
vote is not far from a tie. The total
vote in the state was approximately
sixty-five thousand. The vote for the
democratic candidate for lieutenant
governor, which was in all probability
the actual party vote with small var
iation, was twenty-four thousand.
Deducting this from the total vote,
leaves the republican vote in the state
forty-one thousand. The difference
between the normal democratic vote
cast for the democratic candidate for
lieutenant governor and the vote re
ceived by Governor Burke is approx
imately ten thousand—the actual
strength of the insurgent wing of the
party, as shown by an analysis of the
returns from the recent election.
There are many of those who sup
ported Burke under a misapprehen
sion of conditions, and when he fails
to fulfill the promises of reform which
he made, because there is nothing to
reform—except the printing graft
which was made by his supporters—
they will refuse longer to follow the
will-o'the-wisp which has been rep
resented to them as the lamp of ex
perience. They will return to their
political allegiance because they know
full well that the principles and teach
ings of the republican party are the
ones which have made possible the
prosperity of the people of the north
west and of the nation at large. It is
to their interest to support the repub
lican ticket because the things which
have made them prosperous and hap
py, and which will continue to do so,
are the exclusive work of that party.
Notwithstanding the efforts to
wreck the party which the morning
democratic organ may attempt, and
which were outlined in the editorial
mentioned, it will be found that the
party will live and that even though
it may go down to temporary defeat,
that it, like truth, will rise again, and
become the standard around which
patriots will ever rally because its
principles are the foundation upon
which the republic stands today.
Much as the democratic daily may
desire to overthrow the republican
party in the state in order to gratify
the hatred of itself and the ambition
of a few others, the figures given above
indicate that it cannot be done except
by an open and avowed allegiance of
the entire force of the insurgents with
the democratic party, which accepts
their help but repudiates their alli
The probable readjustment of the
relationship between Japan and the
United States is reasonable and grat
ful to the sense of justice. No one had
credited the declarations, so positive
ly made, that a new treaty, supersed
ing that of 1S94 was to be negotiated.
It seemed too extraordinary, and to
betoken a far more serious condition
of affairs than was supposed to exist,
that summary steps should be taken

for the abrogation or essential modi
fication of a treaty which had been
made for a definite term of years,
which had still five and a half years of
that term to run, and which contained
no provision in itself for abrogation
at an earlier date. Doubtless the two
nations would be competent, by mu
tual consent, to abrogate or to modify
it in any way at any time. But to do
so would be a much more exceptional
proceeding that there now seems to
foe need of. Especially out of the com
mon, if not inevitably offensive, would
it be to seek in such a way and at
such a time so to modify a "most fav
ored nation" treaty as to deny to one
of the parties to it the "most favored
nation" status. To change a treaty in
the direction of closer relations is a
welcome thing. To change it in the
opposit direction is a very different
The intimation that the Japanese
government, of its own volition and
on its own initiative may check the
emigration of Japanese citizens, is
however, entirely acceptable to rea
son. It was urged a few weeks ago
that it was not to Japan's interest to
have many Japanese expatriate them
selves, and that the Japanese govern
ment probably regarded such emigra
tion with disfavor. That view of the
case is strongly supported by the
present intimations of Japan's in
tentions, and will be completely
justified if they are confirmed. The
case is simple. Japan has a popula
tion of only 45,000,000, which is not
increasing at a particularly rapid
rate. It is true her territorial area
is not large, but it is so large that
her population is only a little more
dense than that of France, not nearly
so dense as that of England, and
scarcely half so dense as that of Bel
gium, though, because of the thrift
of her people, she could probably
sustain a denser population than any
of those countries. Moreover, there
is the great island of Formosa, which
belongs to her and which contains
only a few Japanese settlers there
is Corea, lying within sight of her
own shores and under her protection
and control, with a sparse popula
tion and with enormous natural re
sources to be developed, and there
is the vast expanse of Manchuria for
the colonization and development of
which Japan has the strongest
reasons. Common sense would sug
gest that if any considerable numbtvr
of Japanese are to depart from the
isles of Nippon it would be far pref
erable, for the empire's sake, that
they should go to one of these three
countries, rather than to some remote
foreign land.
It is no unheard of thing for a
government to discourage emigration
or to seek to direct its course. It
would be comparatively easy for the
Japanese government to Jo so effec
tively, because of the loya reverence
with which the people of Japan re
gard their emperor. If the Japanese
government pursues such a course
the result will be accepted as a sat
isfactoy solution of what might be
come an awkward problem. In any
case, however, whether or not Jap
anese immigration hither is stopped
by the voluntary action of the imperi
al government, there can be no ques
tion as to the course to be pursued
toward the Japanese who are now in
this country. They are entitled, by
the most solemn and supreme en
gagements of this government, to all
the protection, rights and privileges
which are enjoyed by immigrants
from any other land, and in all mat
ters connected with the administra
tion of justice they stand on an exact
equality with natural born American
citizens. We cannot believe that any
state will seriously and persistently
attempt to deny them such a status,
It's a point that shines very
clearly, too. It's a point to be con
sidered most carefully. "BEST
VALUE" is the point we pin our
faith on.
Many thousand customers know
that we give "BEST VALUE." We
will gladly prove it to you, if you

though if any should, it would be

The Christmas shoppers are 'being
urged to make their purchases early
and so, to speak, avoid the rush. This
is destroying the very essence of
Christmas. We have already destroy
ed the delightful myth of the real
Santa Claus. Now when the stores
and shops are seeking to restore the
beautiful romance, we are advised :o
go down town in the early days and
do the Christmas shopping in a com
monplace manner to lose all the de
light of the rush and hurry of Christ
mas eve to forget the ten thousand
things displayed for the shoppers in
the store windows to miss all the
spirit of Christmas which seemingly
gets in the air on the day before that
auspicious event to miss the fun af
sneaking the gifts home and hiding
them in out-of-the-way places so that
they will be genuine surprises. In a
word we are asked to convert the
pleasures of the Christmas season in
to a matter of fact shopping tour into
which the purchasing of groceries and
dry goods sacrilegiously enters. Nev
er. It may be more trouble to mingle
with the crowds on Christmas eve and
buy during the rush, but that is the
spirit of the season. And the spirit
of the season is what makes it the
delight of every one in whom the spar
kle of youth still survives.
it has been found that one of the
machines used in recording the votes
in New York refused to register those
cast by the democrats. That the ma
chine must have been related to the
one in North Dakota. Both have
about the same liking for democracy.

It Took Him Thirty Minutes Once to
Convince One Census Enumerator
That He Was Not an Indian.
Nearly all men of prominence, more
especially those in public life, have to
put up with jokes of others very often
at their own expense. A friend of A.
A. Bruce, of the university law school
tells a good story on that gentleman
who was at one time a newspaper re
Dean Bruce was born in India, as it
happens, but is of Scotch parentage.
The last time the census enumerator
interviewed the dean, the following
conversation is alleged to have taken
"Your name?"
A A. Bruce."
"Place of birth?"
"Indiana, did you say?"
"No, India."
"Let's see," said the enumerator,
"A. A. Bruce born in India, and an In
dian by nationality."
This enumerator was particularly
dull, and it is said that Dean Bruce
put in something like half an hour
trying to make the numskull under
stand that a man could be born in In
dia and still be a Scotchman.
