SENATOR. FORAKER declares war. He cannot support.Taft l
for president. Notwithstanding the; amiable; pronouhcementj
'of the Hon. Nicholas Longworth, recently given out in this
city) there is no peace in Ohio. In very truth, Senator Foraker
has never been a man of \u25a0 peace. He v would rather fight than eat,
and thus a situation is developed of the highest interest. Foraker
and Dick have for the most part been able in the past to drive
»the party, band wagon in Ohio, but this year the senators 'find a
. rebellious crew in full occupation of that vehicle. Unlike Foraker,
the crew would rather eat than fight.
But Foraker is none dismayed. He flourishes the shillelah
and delivers a notable essay on the ethics and the etiquette o^
politics, partly for his own glory and in part by way of sidewinder
delivered under the well cushioned fifth rib of Secretary Taft. It
•is worth quoting. Senator Foraker writes: v
see it stated almost every day in the newspapers as a reason for the
e claim that Ohio has only one candidate for the presidency that I have not
at any time announced my candidacy for that office. It is true that I have
never made any such announcement A candidate for the presidency must
assume, first, the great and serious responsibility of leading his party in
the national campaign, and if successful, as we hope and, expect to be, he
must then assume the grave and serious responsibilities of administering
the executive office. These responsibilities are so grave and so serious that
any man might well feel highly complimented and greatly honoredto have
his fellow citizens name him in such a connection, but at the same time
they are so grave and so serious that any ordinary, man might well hesitate
to proclaim himself qualified for such responsibility, or prefer at least to
wait until invited by his party associates to take upon himself such respon
sibilities. Such apposition is at least more in keeping with the high dignity
of the office. Besides, it gives his party associates ah opportunity, to declare
their unbiased and unembarrassed judgment, Hvhich he should be willing to
both wait for and abide. . . " * „ • .
This delicacy is superfine. The office should seek the .man.
Taft ought to resume his seat and not fill the air with clamorous
and indelicate outcry. He should take example. by Foraker, : who
presents himself to the nation as a man of unsuspected modesty.
While one may concur in a general way with the fine senti
ments enunciated by Senator Foraker, yet the expression of his
acute sensibilties on this subject assumes a certain humorous
aspect if one considers the source. When a man has been an office
-seeker for forty years it is surprising to be informed that in all
this time he has been doing outrage to his most cherished principles.
All this, of course, is byplay. It may amuse, but it cuts no
ice. The real business is before the house when Senator Foraker
conjures the tariff ghost. The spell is working and nobody knows
what terrifying visions the Ohio senator may raise. He proposes
to try the secretary of war for heresy, treason and flat blasphemy.
While the country* will not take to heart the antic humor
of a candid pharisee, preaching a modesty: that he does not own,
there is no doubt that Foraker has put his finger on the sore spot.
The wise men of the republican party had agreed among them
selves to postpone revision of the tariff for two' years and, if pos :
sible, to keep -the question out of politics next year. But, while
the politicians can make politics, they cannot shape issues, which,
indeed, make themselves. It is already clear that the next national
campaign will.be fought largely, if not wholly, on the tariff and
its revision. . '.'•
fXIHE way of bureaucracy is slower. than molasses on a frosty
I morning. It is no secret that land frauds on a monstrous |
J_ scale have been committed in California. The- pigeonholes of I
the general land office are chock a block with the evidence
and the reports of special agents. The land office is under sus
picion. It has been that way; for forty years, and, 1 although \ secre
taries have labored conscientiously to disinfect the office, their sue-;
cess has not been gratifying. There, have been/ outbreaks ! of
sporadic activity, as in the case of the Oregon prosecutions, but
as to California, Wyoming and other states 'in this region
nothing appears to be done. Does any one recall how many years
ago the prosecution of Benson and Hyde was begun? The last
news about the case is that they: may be tried/some time 'next
year.. It is a most discreditable record.* ,
There is the case of Mr. " H. H. '\ Yard. We are hot prepared
to say that Mr. Yard's locations were hot made tinder color *bfiaw-
There may be no case for criminal prosecution, but there- canlbe
no doubt that the government should at once take steps to; recover
title and possession of the vast body of land that Mr YardThas
located as placer grounji. If He can iprove*. his, claim that allcthese
locations are on mineral land of \ that character he ; may; be able to
support His title,; but we have the testimony, of "State Mineralogist
Aubury to the contrary. * BHHHHBHBBHi

British' delegation -hasfroni ; theXbeginningfacted, 't^ ; quote -Stead;
as "a wet blanket ;on the aspirations of the peace crusaders!" \u25a0-\u25a0•'.
Yet the British delegation fairly represents the tone and type
of the conference. It is : lame and impotent, insincere ' and not ; in
earnest. Baroness ; yon Suttner, an Austrian publicist; is more
severe than Stead. She attacks the conference for its 'dilatory
policy and general inaction. She complains that peace is not .even
given "a first class funeral." 'Her 'bitter words have elicited a reply
from M.Nelidoff,;who leads the Russian delegation. He explains
that the conference is assembled "to study international law", and
is "not able to control ] international politics." The i conference, then;
is a sort of summer schoolfor the sUidy of law, with all the powers
and duties of a nice tea party.^ The;,^^ American .delegates, would' do

If we had that castle here we would call it the county/ jail and ; put
some of our unnecessary mayors in fit, but the always

officer planted the palms, and the Cubans, being-, a highly ;l logical
people, made, this unthinlcing act of a mutton" headed soldier the j
basis of a simple arithmetical (calculation. The"? cocoa : palm ; does 1
not bear .fruit until it is -six years old; -'Therefore, the American I
occupation would continue for at least that period and . probably
longer, if they liked the taste of the fruit. The syllogism was com

Free Dental Service for
Freiburg Children
GONSUL E. . T. LIEFELD reports
that on April 22 a municipal
schulzahnkllnik (school dental
/clinic) was opened In the German
city of ' Freiburg, the operations of
which he thus describes:
The dentist at. the' head of this school
clinic examines all the children in the
•Jity. both* in. their homes and in the
public schools. 'A report on such ex
aminations . Is sent to the parents, who
are asked to send their children to the
school dental j cllntc for free treatment.
Those children having. 10 or more
poor teeth . are first ' treated, an ex
ception being made In the higher
classes where those with only slight
defects are to be^ treated, so that they
•will leave the public schools with sound
teeth. After .'these worst cases have
been attended to, all other children
with defective teeth are to be treated,
the younger ones given preference. The
treatment of the .teeth Includes extrac
, '".ion, filling, crowning, etc" x
"There is no actual instruction In-den
tal'hygiene, but at the opening of the
dental clinic the teachers explain Its
objects and workings to the children.
The "zahnkarte" ( tooth ," report card)
contains on. : ; the. reverse side instruc

SOME eve I'd like to plant myself
By boyhood's long neglected shelf.
Once more- to ope those volumes
/worn •
Which modern 33ges make . forlorn. , ,
Once mor« to !at the moments speed
With Optic. CastJ*monr Mayne Reid! ~.
The "Boat Club" set. "The White Chief"
Ah, these were books, I do declare!
"Jack 1 Hazard!" Joy! Again we meet
By grace of Trowbrl<ig» lines replete!
And *pou my word here's "Cudjo's
(Was Cudjo not a "dandy" slave?)
The "Scottish" Chiefs" Is this. I guess,
With "Thaddeus' of Warsaw" — yes!
And this (I loaned It o'er and. o'er)
la Stephens' "Left on Labrador!"
Pass by., that dog eared treasure? No!"
'Tls Scott's entrancing "Ivanhoe!" *
(How often.* of Its glamour taught,
Have Tom and I In tourney : fought!)
And hsre, imploring boyhood's eyes.
The "Last of the ; Mohicans" lies!
Hall! Hawkeye. Uncas, Chlngachgook!
("Deerslayer" is that next old book.)
Come. "Crusoe." pretty ragged, yon —
A hundred times read through and
Tour woodcuts blurred. While this
\u25a0 one — see?
The far marooned "Swiss Family!"
And look! Their lonesomeness con
"Aladdin." "Sinbad" aad the rest
Peer forth from, covers stained and
k'fljiif ii I ii i.^llMiMi'llill^liillllwpHlH I MUPBTW
Awaiting — cheek by Jowl with Grlmml
Upon. this faded black discern
The tempting, wizard name of Vernet
The title? Must be "Field of Ice" —
Or, no. some "trip" of strange device.
Munchausen, here: that Gulliver:
This, Coffin — truthful chronicler.
(The other three of course are bricks.
But can't beat "Boys of *7«r>
And you. oh gift of gentler pen:
Louisa Alcotfs "Little Men"!
And you, -whom kindred soul ' creates:
"Hans Brinker; or. The Silver Skatea!"
But Duty warns— like mother's dread:
"Stop now. my son; 'tis time for bed."
In vain I'd beg: "One chapter more!"
Farewell, dear shelf of boyhood's lore.
— Edwin L. Sabln.
He has a carriage now. No more win
he see other people passing
And wonder If the time will come when
he such things will be amassing;
For ne Is past : the wonder stage; afar
from speculative notions.
His carriage Is a wicker one. and he's
. . the means of locomotion.
His old friends smile as he goes by and
snap their fingers at the. baby,
And while it bellows in its grief, ob
serve that It looks like him, maybe.
They leave him there to stop its noise,
and throw a3ide all thought of •
That brings a man to such a pass he
rolls a wicker baby carriage.
— Dallas News.
