"I would rather have been a rnpinbe of this legislature than any that lia: held a session in the past twenty years," was the expression of a veteru who has served almost continuously in the house and senate since 1S88 was thoroughly just illed by the facts For honest and sincere effort and fot actual results accomplished, the state of Iowa will look a long time to ttnd a legislature that can be compared to the one just adjourned. La,st summer saw a ibitter campaign It was an awful light for friends and neighbors to engage In, but results have justified the cost. Iowa nas a primary election law which gives to the people a voice In nominating their candidates for office and virtually establishes the selection of United States senators by dircct vote of the people. he people.^' vva has\an a Iowa has\an antl-pnsa law that" pro hibits all railroad passes of every kind anc[ description,' excepting only em ployes devoting their entire time to railroad service. Iowa has a law permitting all her people, poor as well as rich, to rido on her railways for two cents per mile. Iowa has. a law forbidding corpora tions to make campaign contributions. Iowa has a law giving authority to her railroad commission to establish joint freight rates which will remove the discrimination In rates heretofore existing against the small towns and in favor of the railroad centers and a law instructing her railroad commission to investigate interstate freight rates and make complaint against all rates unfair to Iowa shippers. Iowa has a law guaranteeing to her people pure food, pure medicines and pure stock foods. Iowa has a law permitting her large cities to adopt the Galveston plan or business corporation management of municipal affairs and a law centraliz ing responsibility^ for administration of city affairs upon mayors, two laws which will go far toward making Iowa cities the best managed in the world. Iowa has a law which provides for reforming all criminals under 30 years of age with an indeterminate sentence and an able board of pardons to grant •paroles to worthy unfortunates instead of closing the door of hope forever to her weaker and fallen citizens. If such an aggregation of reforms had^been the sum total of ten years of effort a /good work would have been done, yet the assembly just adjourned has accomplished all of them. The travail of last summer's campaign has been fully repaid. The people have something to show for their fight to give Cummins a third term. The gov ernor has lived to see more of his sug gestions for improving the conditions 6f his people enacted into law than any other governor who ever'held office. The insidious power of special inter ests in Iowa politics has, temporarily, been annihilated. Pure representative overnment for a session has been set jjp and the results have justified the ideal. Nothing o£ radicalism has been able to get thru both houses, yet much of real reform has-been accomplished. Nowhere has there been a fear to change existing conditions but every where the fullest hearing, most careful consideration and sensible as -well as courageous conclusions shown in set ting up neWsorders of affairs. This is progress of the genuine and beneficial sort. To have -been a progressive in 1906 and '07 will be a pround heritage to bequeath to future generations., O A S IN E N E W S A E S Miss Susan Keating Glaspeli, a good •newspaper woman with literary talent and a news nose, in her paper on "The influence of the Press," read to a Dav enport club, gave Its members a heart to heart talk from the reporter to the reader of daily newspapers. Among other matters handied plainly she gave the explanation of the existence and popularity of "yellow papers as due to a yellow" public and offered as the solution a toning down of the color of public demand. She said a number of true and pertinent things to the as sembled club members but nothing truer than this: It is the province of the newspa per to criticise. It is the province of the newspaper to expose. "TJiink how his poor wife will feel," they say when they come to the' office asking that the story about the grafter bs held out. But the paper which holds' out the story about the grafter is not attending to its business and does not deserve thei name decent newspaper. It is the business of the paper to print the news. It is the business of the paper to tell the people when things are wrong. It is too bad al^out the grafter's wife, but the grafter is re sponsible for that, not the newspa per. We must look in wider sweeps, and farther Into the future. Some people say that newspaper reporters are grafters themselves. "Better fix the reporter with a ten dollar bill," you occasionally hear. It is certainly true that all men are not born good and honest, and newspaper men are no better than oth er people. But what honesty might not Most guilty men who ha\e much to lose in cash, business standing or pri vate reputation thru publicity, rue anxious to pay for suppression. It is to the infinite credit of the profession that so few are able to secure Immuni ty from the press. The few that escape rarely do so thru purchase. It is an erroneous impression that money is a firevailing influence in I elit ri it rooms of a daily newspape In the high c®iss newspaper editor ial sanctum three forces tear at the judgment of the men who govern the wheels of publicity—justice, the neVs value of "the story," and that charity that springs from pity. These men veritably "sweat drops of blood'* on occasions. Especially true is this of big newspapers published in small towns. When exposuro comes to the guilty man who has taken a high stand in public and social affairs, 't(^ the woman whose connections of family and in society are prominent, when the sons And daughters of good men and women go fatally wrong and the pub lic waits to see "what the paper will say about it" the sweating process be gins in the newspaper office. It may be a mother crushed beneath the disgrace of her son and daughter, a true and tender woman pleading as only such women can plead for her children a white faced and white haired father, with a life of honor and respect be hind him, urging his own claim to charity In behalf of some member of his family "with the broken assurance that publication "will kill his moth er.': Delegation after delegation from fraternities representing the vast ma jority of the leading citizenship of the town, come in to plead, argue and at times threaten. Mutual friends flit In and out. Every favor that the news paper and Its editors have ever received from the ones who plead and the ones for whom they plead Is recalled and urged over and over. These exper iences, common in the Inner offices of newspapers are crucial. They leave grey hairs and more lines in the faces of the men who must be just before they are kind, true to the public be fore they are pitiful. If ^t were a ques tion of payment, of common greed and quasi blackmail any grafter could "run a newspaper." The idea that immunity is purchas able of the decent newspaper is a mis taken one. The average newspaper maker's sense of duty to the public is high. If he has another sensp higher is that of duty to "the sheet." He may be "worked," at times thru his sympathies, tout he is not amenable to bribery and not to be bullyragged. If all professions, trades and occupations were pursued as conscientidusly and impersonally as that of newspaper making, there would be little talk and fevv offers of bribery. Topics of the Times The land looters are willing to com promise by handing back part of the loot. It's the old system of thieves. Mayor Busse being a bachelor may be depended on not to favor the mar riage policy of his contemporary at Ft. Dodge. The ministerial association of Coun cil Bluffs is after the icemen who de liver on Sunday. Up to date, however, the icemen'are cutting more ice-than the ministers.

An honest man would not be bribed: a good reporter would not hold out tile news. Those iiie two t«u ts. 1 do not know which of them is the guiding one, but believe thej woi together, and that the reporter who loves his work, and reporters do love their work or they would get into something easier, is honest about his w'ork. The idea of so easily 'Mixing the reporter with a ten do 11 a bill, .-1 out of inexperience. that th» head of the ticket is not taken from New York. Their present gover nor, Edward Casper Stokes, is being groomed for the race and it is said has expressed a willingness to contest the nomination for vice presideit with Governor (Juild^of Massachusetts and all other comers. t-HU Governor Iloch of Kansas may get re.idv for a fusillade trom the Sioux City Journal. He has accepted a num ber of assignments from a lecture bureau:} for this summer and will re ceive as much as $150 a night, the sea son's profits figuring close to $15,000. Recently a letter arrived addressed in a foreign hand and under a Croatian postmark. "Rntered as sdcond^-class matter at the postoffice in Chicago, 111." Now that looks hopeleSs, doesn't it? But ore of Busse's men squinted at It and deduced this: "Meant for some foreign language newspaper hy sender wtio knows no English and copied th-f only English in a paper printed in Chi cago." Sure enough after a try or two the editor was found whom it was in tended for and who could read it and use the money enclosed. Simple when you know how. IOWA OPINIONS AND NOTFS. Say* the Burlington Ilawlt-Eye: "The Iowa legislature having failed to provide, agricultural high schools, the common high schools of ttye state will now be justified in deyotjniy more attention to training in the* elements of agriculture. Why not? Manual •trainlr.g, normal training and domestic science and business training are made part of the curriculum. Is not agri culture the -chief and noblest calling of all? Give the farmer's boys and girls their share of the money and talent devoted to our high school." "Of all humanity's sufferers," the gambler is the worst," says the Du buque Telegraph, "for his mania ap parently is Incurablc. Penniless and unable to borrow, lie steals to get money to risk on the turn of the card or the numbers on the dice. He Is evident in prisons as a forger, embez zler, thief and robber." Observing that the New Jersey as sembly has passed a ^bill making the punishment for kidnaping children 40 years in state prison, the Davenport Democrat suggests, "Here is an ex ampler for other states. As has been said, itnurder is a braver crime in most cases than kidnaping, and it certainly involves less cruelty." "The lawywer members of the state senate got in a fine piece of work when they were amending the railroad pass law by having It provided that the railroad companies may be permitted to issue passes to two law firms in each county seat if it may be so de sired," says the Clarinda Herald. "This would fix It so that If thought best the railroad managers may be able by ju diciously looking after the lawyers to have them all taken care of, and the next move will be to fill the legislature with -lawyers, so as to have the laws made right. It Is quite a shrewd scheme, but under the primary elec tion law the people may have some thfngot say on the subject," "While the legislature neglected to pass some measures the majority of the jieople seemed to demand, on 'the whole they have done well," -concludes the Oakland Acorn. "The two impor tant acts are the 2-cent passenger law and the /primary law. It cannot be said that the railroads dominated -this legislature, tho some bills which the railroai interests wished* killed were slaughtered in the senate. Maybe the legislature worked on the theory that it is better to cut oft the dog's foil by degrees rather than ,all at once, and sd they waited two years before taking another fall out of the railroads." 9 "The correspondence between Presi dent Roosevelt and Mr. Harriman lacks a certain interest that clustered about the "Dear Maria" feature of a former correspondence," renaarks the Council Blufi's Nonpareil. .1 OUTSIDE POINT OF VIEW CUI! •Ml mm) With herei and there an exception, there is a pretty genfe-ral opinion that because Hearst and his newspapers favored Dunne's election ithe voters turned him dowty It's a comfortable thought that we, the intelligent people, are able to detect the demagogery of •the Hearst/ crime, but is not alto gether so sure that we, the people, the intelligent people, do not keep him and KING OF CURES THE WONDER WORKER PR.

The day after the last general election in Iowa, one of Hearst's Chicago dailies was seen on the news stands of Iowa, with a. big head Hue announcing Cummins' defeat, while tne other Chicago dailies-told of his election. And only last week "the limit of absurdity was?'reached when the American, In an edition that was on the streets at 5:30 p. in., told how .M:iyor-elect Busse had "received con gratulations until long after midnight, then, fearing he might break down under the excitement, he retired." This siime paper, in -type that'could be read across the street, conceded the approval of the traction ordinances, and then, one paragraph lower, an nounced: 'Hut the friends of municipal own ership—the forces of honesty and de cency—refuse to concede the passage of the ordinances." It was this paper that on its first page carried a five-column line, "Busse Wins!" and on the editorial, or back page of, the paper, showed a seven column caption in an effusion of dem ocratic cheer. The caption read: "Yes, Mayor Dunne's re-eltJction is certain." Such little things as these seem to have no effect on the general reading public. Lincoln was righ-t "You can tool some of the people all of the time." Hard lines seem to be drawn these days on religious prophets and seers. Dowie went down to his grave a pauper, full of venom In his latest "breath, deserted by wife and son, «nd all but a few score of formerly deluded followers. Betrayed by his chosen lieutenant, he saw hig Ill-gotten gains legally 'transferred to' the control of hated opponents, and the despised news-papers showing up his character and operations In the strong glare of publicity. All this in the last few months of his life. It was a terrible argument in favor of the doctrine, of punishment here on earth. Truly Dowie lived twelve months too long. And what of Mrs. EJddy? True It is her last days are consoling with the thought of the numerical strength of her followers.' But if she retains any of her reasoning faculties, the present legal battle must -be the source of much irritation to a woman, whose very existence is one qf thought. It must be a supreme effort on her part: to avoid thinking of the persecution comoing to her just now. From the Christian Science standpoint, it is all imagination that her gray-halrec! and whiskered son wants a receiver ap pointed. -She has not appointed, any trustees to prevent her appearance in court, or to prevent her millions going at her death to her direct heirs. In fact, to be strictly Christian scientific ally logical, she hasn't any dollars she only thinks she has. unfortunately for lier peace of mind, her son and 'his lawyers think the same. And Mrs. Eddy has too lived too' long. If sh'e had joined the majority two yearn ago, much better for Christian Science and the school of religion she so suc cessfully founded. Carnegie, the great, there is only one Carnegie, Is quoted as saying that he is entitled to no credit In amassing hi-5 millions. He modestly doe^ claim, an unequalled ability to select men to make milions for him. j'o state it any other way, he buys brains, and the brains makes millions—for him. And this is probably the true explanatiqn of Carnegie's -success. As hard as it is to our self-conceit, very-few of us know' how to make money. We are all ex perts in the art of spending It. "Can giive cards and spades" to. Russell Sage in that line. But to sieze opportunity and make the most of it, is only the faculty of one In the thousand. Our. hind sight is so clear, our foresight so dim. And so when Carnegie hires an assortment of brains, and puts them to work in departments where the Jft- sult is dollars for .the brain buyer, why Carnegie gets in a class by himself. A Harriman furnishes the brains for a score, of underworkers, he is it, while Carnegie stands by and absorbs the ideas of others. Both are equally suc cessful in so far as piling up dollars are concerned. And with all this goes this peculiar condition of affairs. Car negie, the brain 'buyer and absorber, makes friends of the very few men -he uses to forward -his own interests. Har iriman, the individual thinker and pro ducer, hasn't a friend on earth. Car negie, the canny Scotchman, indebted to his assistants for his millions, has much of their love and respect. Harri man that ow&s no man for the use of a "thinker," will be followed to his grave not only by hired carriages, but 'by hired mourners.
