Burns & Smith, Inc. % “BASEBALL is one sport that cannot be fixed.” ANYWAY, nobody can fix it and get away with it. POOR OLD CINCINNATI! Took her half a century to win a world series and then it was crooked. , HOWEVER, Senator Harding is not the only one who has trouble with explanations. The G. O. P. chiefs are now explaining the reason the league covenant was left out of their campaign book was “lack of space.” Contrasted! Ih one of his recent short speeches Thomas Taggart, Democratic nominee for Senator, said: , - I have stated Heretofore my opinion that State and local government is purely a matter of business, and that they should be conducted on busi ness principles. In my opinion the same business principles apply to Na tional Government that apply to local government. The greatest ques tions in this country today grew out of the late war. We have got to pro vide for paying the money cost, to begin with. And, then we have got to provide for making what little compensation -we can to the crippled and wounded soldiers, and to the widows and orphans, and for just recognition to the living men who did the fighting. But, when all that is cone there remains the awful cost of blood and hardship, and suffering for which no compensation can ever be made; and what are we going to do about that? The only way we can make any payment for that terrible waste is by preventing a. repetition of it for future generations. The chief benefit we got out of this war was experience; and that is not a benefit unless we profit by it. - We ought to make it a resource and I think the people of the United States want to profit by their experience by making war in the future as nearly impossible as they can. < And I say that is good business. We are just learning in this country that it is'cheaper and easier to prevent fires than ii is to put them out; and wars are very much like fires. They spread in the same way. You remember that th§ great Chicago fire was caused by the Widow O’Leary's cow kicking over a kerosene, lamp. That is what stirted it, and the con ditions were favorable for the big fire that followed. The late war was started by somebody down in Servia killing fife Austrian Crpwn Prince. The conditions were favorable for trouble, and the world was set on fire. The Chicago fire taught people to keep kerosene lamps away from cows; and it has had some effect in keeping cow's out in thi country, where they can kick without doing much damage. We have a similar problem In the prevention of war* for I think everybody is agreed on the desirability of prevention, and the .only question is as to the mode of prevention. And that is not, or ought not to be, a very serious question, because nobody can imagine any mode of -prevention that would not cost Infinitely less in money, and life, and blood, and suffering than cost. New contrast that sentiment with the plea of James E. Watson the* we make a separate peace with Germany by resolution although “Germany never declared war on us and we are not now officially at war with Ger many” and if you can find it in your heart tq vote for Mr. Watson first go out and kill the family cat. “Seek Ye First the Kingdom —” When nearly two hundred,, million people of Russia are dn'ting into bankruptcy and are despoiling all the accumulated wealth of the nation; when in America explosives are planted so scores are injured and killed; when communism and some schools of socialism foster class hatred and destruction to accomplish their ends it is time, a most serious thought were given the whole situation. No warning words may cause them to delay nor to think aright, but each individual can do something, within himself, to assist in solving the great problem now confronting the nations of the wopld. No one soldier can save the army; each can perform his bit and if he does that part, the sucobss of the whole assured. Equally so with eaclT'member of Tire community. Fundamentally, why all this hatred and all this misery? Malice between neighbors is unnatural; men prefer to abide in peace and to work out problems in order and good "Judgment. The thirty odd murdered in New York by a single blast of a hidden Infernal machine are mutp evidence of malice, or hatred in t£e extreme. Because of what? f What departure from right, what desperate error of judgment has crept in? • It is envy—envy of the good fortune of a neighbor, envy of the riches one may accumulate and ft covetous desire to appropriate what belong*, to another. This is a dreadful error of reason, a breaking of one of the ten commandments and something that jnust be righted before peace comes to bless the toil of the day. All this arises too, from the belief that true happiness is to be found in something outside of one’s self. How unhappy are the rich, if the trpth were but known! How miserable are those who worship and acquire money only to find wealth a relentless taskmaster, terrible beyond the dreams of a Dante’s inferno. How poor indeed is a person who does not realize that self respect and a sunny disposition, unselfish love for others and the pursuit of truth are heritages of every individual, be he surrounded by a palace or living in a hovel, afed each carries Its sure reward. The world can neither give nor take away truth, Yet in their passions men sacrifice life and wealth in the pursuit of that which does not even contain nor depend upon the eternal, and which fades into nothingness. Where today are Napoleon’s splendors or Kaiser William’s pomp of German power? Joy in the tender love of family, consciousness of having done, right, firmness in observance of the golden rule make wealthier than all the gifts of a debauched nation. Right thinking in all of its infinite range, from little"facts of every-day life to spiritual facts beyond utterance, with the long line of human manifestations between, brings true happiness and is the abiding possession of every person who will accept it. Is there reason, then, for envy, murder,-violence? These ari3e from the wrong view-point, taking the lesser thiags of life and making them large, reversing that w-hlch is important for the unworthy and thus pile confusion on confusion. It is essential to our life as a nattop that we live for the verities of not for dollars. We in and practice the golden rule, beginning with our own acts and never with the regulation of the other man nor the destruction nor confiscation of his property. Is it possible, in all these turbulent times, that we are seeking to beat or undo that truth whirti was given us almost two thousand years rgo! “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you?” , % If It is thought to substitute something for that teaching, the folly is desperate, the effort useless. ' Two Classes of People It makes me very, very tired to hear some public speaker talk about the middle class, the common people, the rjch or thpjmor, the godly and the criminal. Dislike, however, as much as you may to use the term “class,” there are only two classes of people in this country, or two elements. _ ' „ . ♦ There is no such thing as the upper, the middle, or the lower class in this country. Society in the United States is made up of only two ele ments —those -who produce and those who do not. Those who belong to the worthless or non-productive class- are the idle rich And the criminal. The other class Is made up of 95 per cent of the people of the United States who thing, and are known as the productive class, whether they work with their hands or their head; whether they work M an undershirt or in a white shirt. If you look over the community fin which you live, you can not pick out more than one out of twenty men or women of the productive age who lives an absolutely jdle life unless they are too old or too young, or unfortunate through sickness or accident. It is this great 95 per cent of the people of this country who DO something that is bound to save us eternally from the other countries have with a population where there is a larger percentage of idle cr non-pro ductive citizens. We need never worry about our country so long as we can require everybody to work or be thrown into the discard. Ancient history tells us of the custom of some thrifty country where the idle were put to death because they were only a burden on those who worked. Nothing in the world equals the nobility of labor.— ip, D. Boyce, in the Saturday Blade, Chicago. I i . •*.

The Pierce-Scott Race of 1852 WASHINGTOS, D. C.—The campaign of 1854 marked the end es the Whig party as a factor in national affairs. For the third time that organisation placed expediency before principle to nominate a war hero for President. Winfield Scott ,wa@ the hero of the War of lSET'and ot the r with Mexico. He had been de feated in the convention by a narrow margin by WUliam.HepXy Harrison when ,it was necessary tp chhpse n hero candi date to oppose V*n Bursa in 1840. That was Tippecanoe against Lundy’s Lana, and Tippecanoe won. As will be remem bered, Scott was defeated in 1840 by a letter written to secure abolition support in New York.-. Writing letters wai the I one great business of General Stott’s j life. He wrote letters to everybody, | about everything, and at all times. His i letter ruined him and pnrty, and when the votes were counted it was found that he had been overwhelmingly defeated by the Democratic "dark horse," j Franklin "Pierce. Scott carried only four i States in the Union, receiving but forty i two electoral votVs to Pierce's 254. When President Taylor died ho was ! succeeded In the White House by Millard : Fillmore# As has been the case In every instance In which a vice president hr* "become chief mngUtrate_ (with a single exception) the policy of the Administra tion was reversed. Taylor had permitted his policy to be dictated by the con aervatlve Whigs. Fillmore was a Liberal. As u result of the right-about-face atti tude taken by Daniel Webster, who went over to' the non interference-with-Slavery side in his speech of March 7, and of tb?' succession of Fillmore, ali parties were enabled to get together once more on a compromise basis. HENRY CLAY AGAIN - MARTS PEACE ./ It was Henry t'lay. the Great Pacifi cator, whose compromises had kept out of the White House, who was one* nyore called to the *front in htw old age to bring abont peae*. The Compromls* of 1850 was It included sev eral measures. The most important was 'the admission of California as a free State, as that broke the balance of powet between free and slave • States in tlig. United v States Senate. It was the one concession to the North, hnt it\wH9 ot far greater importance than the South 'realized. To tha other side the eopeea sions were a stringent fugitive slave law, the maintenance of slavery In the ‘Dis trict of Columbia, the payment to Texas of $10,000,000 for yielding Us claims to New Mexico, and the organization ol Utah and New Mexico as territories with out restrictions aS to slavery. Bv this compromise, Henry Clay .united the war ring elements of the Democratic and destroyed for all time the par’y which he organized.,and had captained for so many years. ' "*'•* j President Fillmore candidate for the nomination. General Scott and Mr. Webster were the other aspirants. Mr. Fillmore had urged the compromise through Congres* and had approved It. He wished the whole country to accept It as the anal- disposition of the whole question. The country, for the most, part, wished to accept It atT such, ffhe Democratic convention approved. The Whigs had to do so. To swallow the F.llmore-Clay compromise the North ern Whigs were forced, but they would not swallow Fillmore. 80 they took Scott, whose sympathies were believed to be with the anti-slavery wing of the party. General Scott was nominated on the fifty-third ballot in tbe convention, after heated sessions in which a delegate would now and then arise to spring a letter from Scott. When the nomina tion was made Senator Jones of Ten nessee, the ‘‘Lean Jimmy" .Tones who had twice defeated James K. Polk for Governor, leaped to the platform with a t letter from General Scott, it was a let ter of acceptance couched in less than a hundred words, hut pledging loyal and exclualve support to the platform. That all too sudden letter helped to do his business In November.

PAUL G. DAIVS,- letters attacking the Catholics and op posing the foreign element In politics. These old letters the Democrats used against him s with great effect. Horace Greeley shouted himself black in the face In his attempts to defend Scott from Scott's letters, but it was of no avail. General Scott himself took the stump In an effort to win over the'voters of foreign blood. He was a great Batterer, and his references to the "rich jrlsb' brogue" and the “sweet Gei-man accent" of some of bis hearers were nothing less than ludicrous. The Whigs soon real ized that Scott would bfe defeated, but the candidate hoped on When it all 'over he gave 'out an Interview in which he declared that he owed his de feat to the New York Herald, the Web ster defection and the lukewarmness of the Fillmore administration. Daniel Webster consented to become the head of a bolting Union ticket, hnt he died a few days before the election and his little party died with him. A few days before his death Webster sept for his bosom friend, Peter H ifvey, and asked; "Is Rufus Choate going to vote for Scott V” "I don’t k*ow.” was Har vey*_jeply, “hut I think not." Then Webster said: ’'Tell him not to ruin his future by voting for Scott, and teil him, as my dying message to him, that after the second day of November next the Whig party as a national party will ex ist only in history.” The publication of this Interview in the Democratic papers a few days before the ejection did dot aid the Whig’s dying caftse, although Choate announced his fealty'to Scoff. Webster's prediction was correct. In 1832 the Whig party died aud in the same year Henry Clay aYid Daniel Web ster, its greatest leaders and its wort* enemies, were gathered to their father*. In the-election the Whig ticket carried but four States— Massachusetts Ver mont in N.-w England and Tennessee and Kentucky in the South. / 1 DEMOCRATS RESTORED TO POWER AFTER HARD FIGHT.

The Bureau of Standards Bays that cratlc convention the Virginia delegation plumped a -Solid vote Pierce of New Hampshire, whose name had not been mentioned in the convention, al though the New York Herald had sug gested him as''the possible “dark horse." That started the ball, and Pierce war nominated on the forty-ninth ballot. -Pierce had a good record as a politician, had served with lome distinction as a Urlgadior General in the War with Mex ico; and had the negative strength of bolus a compromise nftan. AVhen Pierce was nominated the Dem orruta did not yet know how many mA takes General Bcott would make or how many letters he would write. They onlj knew that the WhlgS were certain to nominate him and that he was a war hero It was in the frightened effort to get hero to match a hero that Houston w-n proposed, and that Pierce was selected. Yet how few Americans remember today that Franklin Pierce bad a war record in Mexico? The Pierce nomination was the first in which the unlocking galleries in a na tional convention took part. $1 ben Pierce’s name was first voted for. a New Hampshire delegate, wild with excite ment, invited the people In tne galleries to Join in the cheering. They accepted the invitation, despite the precedent that bad always obtained, forbidding the gal leries to cheer or applaud. The result wo* the first "demonstration." It lasted for eight minutes. > Thus was begun the unhappy custom which has made a bedlam and a mob of every na tional convention aince. The campaign of 1852 was affected to a considerable degree by tw* side show* that were running—the prohibition move ment and the woman suffrage propa ganda. The suffragette* held a Meat na tional convention which was attended by women from all over the Northern States, moat of them attired in "bloomers.’’ Eliz abeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. An thony were two prominent figur&. The prohibjtion movement did not enter into national politics, but it waa a great fac tor tn State and congressional contests. When it was all over the 'country breathed easier. The Democrat*, had been restored to power by an overwhelm ing and nSn-sectional vote. People hoped and believed that the compromise of 1850 would stand, and that the i gltatioti of the slavery question would die out. They Vcre deluded, but their hoiwst belief at the time explains many things that seem to be unreasonable in the light of later events. ’ f „Tlie members of the league agree that ! the manufacture by private enterprise of ; munitions and implements of war Is open ;to grave objections.
