TAFT'S FATUITY IX HIS speech at Detroit the other day Mr. Taft dwelt at length on the necessity of party organization «nd the futility of trying to accom plish anything under our form of gov ernment except through such agency. Time and again ho has harped on this string, and he has loft us In no doubt as to his meaning. It is that ho and Cannon and Aldrich and Payne repre sent the grand old party and all who break away from allegiance to tho old group are. recalcitrants. Those de signing men, crafty from long study and practice of the political game, have played on tho president's credulous good natures and convinced him that tho insurgents are few and unimport ant, the irresponsible would-be lead ers of a schism. , How thoroughly they have deceived Mr. Taft is apparent from hia sweeping vindication of Ballinger, his open es pousal of Aldrich, his declarations that the new tariff bill is the best ever passed, and his repeated scolding of the insurgents, or progressives. . Mr. Taft is afflicted with a political eilpbonpolnt that will not lot him got his car down to the ground, If he could do bo ho must gee the significance of such things ns the lowa election, where the masses of his party have passed on the old guard surrounding the president. The Republican nom iti f * *'»■ TMfl^ i*^\ oT* f^ **** 1oyc? Ift i*< 1 1 o c Oi *vlt * %i l*^^ _ grossives to three regulars. What other Inference can there be for Mr. Tnft than that the Insurgents have captured the party banner and that not they but the regulars are outside the breast works? So while Mr. Taft Is talking about the sacredncss of the party and its necessity as an agency of government, by way of implied rebuke to tho in surgents, ho is only making plainer his own fatuous blindness to the course of events. By nature Mr. Taft Is a Bourbon. He is for tho estab lished order of things, and it Is cost ing him his grip on his party because it is keeping a veil over his eyes. If the Boston election, the Rochester election and the lowa primaries do not tear away that veil there is small hope that the president will be able to save himself, when the pi ople bury the old guard und'r an avalanche of vots at the end of tho next congres sional campaign. SCOOPED AGAIN J THE HARTFORD DEVELOPER Is not the name of a commodity on sale In the department stores, but of an esteemed contemporary published in the town of Hartford, Arkansas. The Developer evidently has one of the beat grapevine telegraph services in the country, and many news items that elude the virrilance of other papers find their way to the Developer over this wideawake system. For instance, in a recent Issue we find that: Many tourists that had Climbed Mount Wilson to view the comet were made seasick by the swaying of the peak during the earthquakes which visited Los Angeles, Cal., and surrounding territory. It Is a fine commentary on the Angel city press, wo must say, that a moun tain right in our midst could be rock ing around like a drunken dromedary and not be detected at it. 'Where were the alert newsgatherers of The Herald and other local papers when the sea sick star-gazers were dodging the fly- Ing telescopes, furniture and kitchen utensils of the denizens of the observ atory and telephoning for a relief party? It Is recalled now by one news gatherer that on a night of the comet excitement a preoccupied Individual. with an arm wound firmly about a lamp-post In .in uptown street, had his rigid gaze directed rut/ at the comet, the presumed cynosure of all but in the direction of Mount Wilson, which he snid was rocking around dreadfully. It "almost makes me sheashlck," he said, but his worda were dismissed as the idle talk of one who had succumbed to the Influence of Halley' It Is all i lear now. He was the special correspondent of the Hartford Developer, hi- mind was clear, and he wa« at the mi rin:? his great on the usually alert press of Eos Angeles. Hal ofl to the Developer! It was said from .Mount Wilson by telephone las) nighi that tho observ atory had settled down and wai doing business at the old stand. IN QUAY'S STATE THOSE who read thai the so-called regulars, or Joe i 'nnnonite won in the Pennsylvania Repub lican primaries, although mostly by close margins, may conclude, it' they do not know the Keystone state brand of politics, that the regulars have popularly Indorsed ;u the polls. In Pennsylvania, thanks to the genius of Matt Quay, whose sainted memory is preserved t>j statue In the i ■ lebruti .1 graft capital, nothing la overlooked thai can con tribute to the strength of the machine. The police and fire departments, the corporations, the brothels, all busl s that want to do an 111 gil trade, together with the ■ ncli •:■ used by a political hierarchy, are knitted ln< i a homogi ni ou itlon that Is impregnable to anything but a veritable simoon.

FRANCHISE.' $O*£. hf£'LL ■• yvv'/-! j A WIDENING STREAM A DISPATCH from Chicago pays that i during the brief period between I March 1 and April 15 this spring between 40,000 and 60,000 colonists ac cording to various railroad managers. found ivw homes In the Pacific north west, in California and in Idaho, Mon tana. Nevada. Utah, Colorado an* Wyoming. The spring movement of colonists is regarded as having broken the record made in the spring of 1909 from 15 to 20 per cent. The Harrlman lines alone (the only ones that have given out exact figures) carried 16.542, an increase of 2593 over a like period In 1009. Last year's per iod extended to April 30 and the total movement was 19,935 colonists. Al though no definite figures can be ob tained from the Hill lines, the move ment over them into the northwest is usually at least double that over the Harriman lines. Figuring upon this basis the move ment for six weeks of the spring pe riod into the northwest and into Cali fornia, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Utah, Colorado and Wyoming must have been approximately 50,000 colonists. A great migration toward the Pacific is K.iiiiff on that could not now be chi eked if we desired. The cumula tive effect of the advertising done by our chambers' of commerce, our rail roads and our loving friends, the colo nists who write back and tell their neighbors of the glories of the Prom ised Land, is being felt in ever-in i reusing force. The shrewd part of the American business people are think ing about the vast market soon to be open 1 by the awakening of China and the completion of the Panama canal, and farmers are asking themselves why they should stay on hardscrab ble land in the east when they can raise Tour crops to one on Southern California soil. Great as has been the immigration of the past, it will be exceeded by that of the future—not only in volume tut In percentage.

CORPORATION TELLS HALF TRUTH IN UPHOLDING RATES [Editor Herald]: I am one of those citizens who believe. In fair play and a square deal. As such I have watched the process of establishing rates for electric light, water and telephones from an Impartial standpoint. This morning's Herald publishes a letter from the lighting corporations, purporting to show what Is being charged in other cities. I am a for mer resident of Cleveland, where I paid electric light hilla for about ten years. There the double unit system of charge is employed; the maximum charge for minimum consumption is 12>£ cents per kilowatt, with an im mediate drop to 5 cents per kilowatt upon consumption of the minimum. Under this system of charging, the average rate for lighting my home wag about 8 cents per kilowatt. My neighbors fared likewise. The letter published in The Herald says Cleveland companies charge 12*£ cents. This Is only half the truth; the average actual charge is less than 9 cents. If the ftem regarding Cleve land Is misleading, how about the other cities mentioned? I might add I paid 3 cents per kilo watt for light in my business, fur nished by the company referred to above. L. C. SOMEKS. Los Angeles, June 8. CONTENDS THAT THE SAVIOR WAS BORN WITHOUT BLEMISH [Kditor Herald]: In the present dis cussion, whether the "sin In the flesh" is purely imaginary or a "physical de filement," Mr. Rode says: "Christ had the same flesh and blood that we all have. Will Mr. Kitts contend that Christ was impure? ire will have to If 'sin in the flesh' means 'some phys ical defilement.' " I am pleased that this statement Is presented. I Will not contend that Jesus, the Christ, was Impure. He was the lamb without blemish, free from Kin, a body prepared as a hab itation for the son of <jod to do his Father's will. Now mark the wisdom of the Father in the preparation of this body of Jesus of Nazareth. "Behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a son." (Isaiah 7:H.) "Thou said Mary unto the angel: How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her: The Holy Qhoat shall come upon thee; therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of tliee -hall be called the son of God." (Luke 1:85.) Thus we see that Jesus was truly the "born of the woman," receiving his mortal life of the flesh from his mother alone, cleansed, purified, ac cording to the law of (lod as laid down in Leviticus xv:2B. No earthly father to mar the temple with the sting of death. It can truly be said that since by the offense of .\<lam all mankind has been begotten ami conceived in sin (Jesus alone except" d, he having no cart lily father), all has.' the thorn in the flesh as a messenger of satan to buffet them, for the fathers (mark the genderi have eaten antl still eat the sour grape, setting the children's teeth <ni edge, a truth sadly confirmed by our crowded prisons, reformatories and kindred institutions.

THINKS CHINESE OUTRAGES CALL FOR VIGILANCE RULE [Kditor Herald): If Abbie Shcehan, the 17-year-old white girl, was lost in the mountains, how long would it be until hundreds of men would be en gaged in the search for her? Or. if the girl lost in the mazes of China town was the daughter of—say Col onel Rooftwelt—how long would it he until hundreds of men would volunteer to go through that Bection of the city like a Texas tornado- And she would be found if in Chinatown or something would happen, Who is putting up the money to em ploy attorneys to defend Mills Sing? \n we trying to break up the "white slave traffle" or are we not? What re unopt have the Chinese tor our laws?

SAY MARCELL GOT $25,000 BY FRAUD IN KANSAS CITY KANSAS CITY. Juno B.—The charges here against J. E. Marcell, whom the police of Los Angeles believe they have under arrest, involve his alleged de frauding of banks out of a sum vari ously estimated to be between $10,000 and $25,000 in 1909. At that time his father had established him in business. For several months he had paid his ilflits and appeared to be making a tuccesi.

Her will, filed later In the probate court, disclosed a romance, for by its provision a man half her age, whom she refused to marry because of the differences in their ages, is be queathed $25,000 of her estate of |826,000. The man, Attorney Edgar R. Accetta of New York, was at Mrs. Stecle's bed" side when she died. He was the last person she asked to see when the hotel physicians told her that she was dying. Shortly after the death of her hus band, fifteen years ago, Mrs. Steele be came engaged to marry Aeeettu. She then broke the engagement, telling Ac oettfl he would ruin his life by marry ing a woman of her years. Accetta then sued her for breach of promise in the New York courts. The suit was settled out of court on agreement that Aecetta should receive an annual in come and $25,000 at Mrs. Stecle's death. According to Attorney Nicholas MiohPls, one of the Steele executors, Accetta arrived In Chicago last Satur day on his way to St. Paul.

He sent word of his predicament to Mrs. Steele, and physicians say that the shock of this news hastened Mrs. Steele'i death. Accetta hastened to the hotel after he was released by the police and found .Mrs. Steele in a semi-conscious con dition. WORTHLESS CHECK CHARGE MADE AGAINST P. P.

It was the business rtf the, war depart ment to see that they made as little disturbance as possible, but to move them on unproven charges would bo merely to impose them upon another community and might amuse a pdo test from such community.
