THE .RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRA31. SUNDAY NOVEMBER 10, 1907. THE RICHMOND PALLADIA AND SUN-TELEGRAM. Palladium Printing Co., Publishert Office North 9th and A 8treets. RICHMOND, INDIANA. PRICE Per Copy, Daily 2c Per Couy, Sunday 3c Per Week, Daily and Sunday 10c IN ADVANCE One Year 5.00 Entered at Rlchjnond, Ind. Postcfflce As Second Class Mail Matte THE REAL SITUATION. Under the caption "presidential can didates are nominated to be elected, and not to be defeated," the Indianap olis News endeavors to show that the flections Just passed proved Secretary Taft a weak man to seek the nomina tion for the presidency on the repub lican ticket. The News claims this on account of the result of the Cleve land election, in which Congressman Burton was defeated by Tom Johnson. The News makes it appear that this defeat for the republican forces was on account of Taft's lack of strength in Ohio, and because President Roose velt saw fit to wish. Burton success when he first entered the campaign for mayor. According to the News, the president in doing this, Injected na tional politics into what was purely a local election. But is that right? Has not President Roosevelt as a re publican president, the right to wish a fellow republican success In his cam paign? No law or custom of the country, written or unwritten, can be found that denies the president or any other officer of our government the right the News would deny President Roosevelt, nor when it is done is It necessarily Injecting national politics into local politics. Burton lost his campaign on purely local issues. Had he won he would have done so on purely local issues. Burton is a republican and Tom John son is a democrat. This difference, however, was not what determined the Cleveland election. It was the trac tion question, and the fact that the cit izens of Cleveland considered Tom Johnson's way of settling that ques tion best, that enabled him to win his election. Nor do we blame the citi zens of Cleveland for feeling this way. Tom Johnson has been nghting the traction interests of his city for five or six years and has almost won the point he set out to attain. With this fact in mind It would have been decid edly foolish for Cleveland's citizens to turn down Tom Johnson now and be gin the traction war all over again and In another way for settlement by elect ing Burton. In support of Its contention that the Cleveland election shows Secretary Taft to be decidedly weak tho News lays, '"What is serious, considered from the point of view of men who 'get delegates,' is the fact that there la a factional fight on in Ohio that seems peculiarly bitter. It is not necessary for tho Foraker people to develop any considerable strength. All they need do is to mak,o a showing tmd to kick up a row all over the state. If they do this, there will be many who will wonder whether a man thus fought at home is 'available.'" Surely, and the more row the Foraker people kick up all over the state of Ohio the more the commou people of Ohio and every other state in the Un ion can feel justified in placing their confidence in Taft. The mere fact that Foraker, old corporation Senator Foraker, is kicking up all this row is enough to place the stamp and seal of honesty upon Taft. If the News is right in its contention that the Cleve land election was lost to the republi can party on account of the factional fight in Ohio between the Taft and Foraker forces, then Foraker is all the more of a dirty politician. For to vent his personal spite on Taft he helped to defeat the republican ticket in Cleveland that is if the News is right in laying the blame for that re publican defeat to factional fighting in the republican party in Ohio. Ohio can thank God that it has a factional fight going on in the republi can party in its borders for the end of that fight will scon bring about the elimination of Foraker and all his dirty gang of corporation heelers and make way for a decent lot of republican leaders. Leaders who have the 1esi Interests of all the people at heart and not the interests of grasping corpora tions. Tho people of Indiana wo.iltl thank God if there were only a faction al fight going on in this s;ate to brins about the elimination of Vice Presi dent Fairbanks and his machine. But as long as the Indianapolis News, the Star League and many minor papers of the state support that machiue either through their own free will or through fear of it, just so long must the people of Indiana be forced to read the kind of slush those newspapers Land out to their readers booming tho Ice president's candidacy for the re publican nomination. Presidential candidates are nominat ed to be eltcted, and not to be defeat d. Indianapolis News. Then why m the name of all that's holy or otherwise keep booming Fair banks'" candidacy. Only a blind, deaf and dumb man would believe he could be elected. PROF. 0. W. DENNIS TALKS 10 MEMBERS OF HORTICULTURAL His Subject Was Mendell's Law of Inheritance, Point ing Out Feature Applicable To Agricultural Pursuits. A SPIRITED DISCUSSION FOLLOWED THE ADDRESS Report on Conditions Showed That There Is Little Corn in The Cribs as Yet Fruit Crop Has Been Light. Mendell's law of inheritance, as it might be applied to agricultural pur suits, was the theme of the very inter esting address which was delivered by Prof. David W. Dennis of Earlham col lege, before the members of tSe Wayne County Horticultural society at its regular monthly meeting, held Satur day afternoon in the horticultural rooms of the court house. Prof. Den nis spoke particularly of the manner in which the law might be applied to growing corn and his entire address was baeed along this line. The sub ject of fruits was also considered. Prof. Dennis spoke of the law and its adaptability to agricultural products in this way; he said, that this law of Inheritance was the only one known to us of variation. This law he con sidered showed that parental influence determined the character of the prog eny; that any peculiarities would be transmitted, either in the first or sub sequent generations. This was par ticularly noticeable in traits or char acteristics that were of the most ob jectionable kind as he styled it, "ex ceptionally bad." Through this me dium, the good qualities that are so much desired, are transmitted with the same exactness. To demonstrate this he referred to three stalks of growing corn, the first of which grow-1 ing a model ear of corn, another grow ing a small, or "nubbin," while the third was earless. In speaking of the good qualities of these stalks, he en deavored to show their causes. He said corn that is selected, usually by the farmers of the country, is chosen without a knowledge of its ancestry. Grains on every ear are not only po lenized by the polen from the tassel of its own skk, but that of others in its proximity. In this way grains on the same ear of corn not only have parent age of the desired grain, but that of the stalks upon which no grain is grown. By this Professor Dennis ac counted for the great loss in yieltf" in bushels on the average farm, from small and Inferior ears. He advocat ed the use of the knife in de-tasseling earless stalks before the silks on the ears have been polenized. which will reduce to a minimum, the chance of growing seew that will produce ear less stalks. The question of saving seed corn Is one that many farmers differ upon, many advocating the se lection of the choicest ears at gather ing time, which can be placed in the dry, and when thoroughly seasoned, will withstand the severe cold and freezes of the winter. The germs of the grains are so often injured by the early frosts and freezes, while the sap in both the grain and ear have not been sufficiently matured. Elicited Much Discussion. The remarks of Prof. DennU elicited much discussion on the point pertain ing to the cause of difference in the yields of the present and former years. Many thought that the different modes of cultivation figured largely in the increased crops, while still others maintained that the great increase in the corn crops of the day was due particularly to the advent of seed corn from different localities. Prof. Den nis paper however, was considered one of the most interesting and at the same time instructive addresses that has been heard before the society in several months. Capt. W. H. Lowe. Caleb King and Isaac Dougan all of this city gave a report on aaxicultural cond'tions at this time which showed that but '.ittle corn has been placed in the crib? in this section. The condition of wheat and rye is very fine, and most encour asrrg they say. Isaac Douvjan claims ' have the banner field of wheat, wh'rh was sown from seed originating in Canada. Tt wa? sown on Septem ber, 17 a"d at present covers the ground a pprfcot green sward. Nathan Garwood cave a short re port on the condition of Wayne coun ty fruits. The fruit growers he taid. during the entire year had to be con tented with a light crop, from the strawberry t the apple, and that any farmers have any apples they have but enough for their own immediate use.

THURSTON News of the T. P. A. Editor The Palladium: Just a few concluding statements in answer to Dr. J. M. Thurston. The last paragraph of the doctor's last fling at us has given us the clue, it would seem, to his whole difficulty, for we steadfastly maintain that the good gentleman is not stubborn or unchar itable in his persistent arraignment of our faith, but that he is merely misled in his views of Christian Science. If our honorable opponent will kindly vouchsafe us the honor of an inter view in the privacy of our own sanc tum, Room 81S Board of Trade, In dianapolis, we believe we can convince him that we actually consider ourselves as yet tabernacling in the flesh, that w are not flighty, imaginative nor un reasonable, either in what we think or in what we say, that with possibly the exception of a few indiscreet ones among our ranks, and a few who as be ginners may possibly be a little over effusive, we are not guilty of trying to lift ourselves by our boot straps. It will be recalled by your readers that it was our critic who started us going In your columns. It will be well for Dr. Thurston, be fore he comes to see us, to clear him self up on a few points mentioned in his last letter, viz.: How can we have a brain for God, without a mind of God to create it? Since God Is truth, as the scriptures teach, are we to believe that truth can not exist apart from brain? j Which is the nearer approach to pantheism, the Christian Science con tention that God is mind, infinite , All Intelligence, or that Deity's being Is contingent on brain tissue? Was the philosophy of the patriarchs and prophets speculative onjy, when they thereby raised the dead, made metal to float and healed malignant disease? i Did Jesus ever speculate on the atomic theory, or did He consult on disease before attempting his wonder ful cures? Who made the first mathematical er ror or struck the first discordant note in music, and who can account for either? Dr. Thurston knows as well as we do that what he has been pleased to term reasonable advancement" in the sci entific world is in every sense a radical departure from the old atomic theory for which he contends. In arguing for his own school of healing he ad mits his own practice to be experi mental, and. at best, but progressive practice, yet he denies to us the same right to progress in our attempt io grasp and utilize the infinite power of God in the healing of disease, demand ing immediate perfection and full dem onstration, in the very face of the fact that it is only what we KNOW of truth that will make us free. He should recall that Jesus himself desig nated death "the last enemy," and ; Christian Scientists cannot reasonably be required to produce the ultimate b- I fore the preliminary in point of prac-! tice. If our critic will but open him self to conviction, the ever increasing volume of incontestable evidence sup-! porting Christian Science practice will 1 mean something to him and he will see that the achievements up to the present are gratifying in the extreme, and our sufficient justification for fur-; tner effort. Judging from the facts which we glean from the Scriptures relative to the healing works of our Lord, we will readily admid that "psycho-therapeuticsis as much divine healing as ad ministering quinine for malaria," for Jesus had recourse to neither, in His healing, but declared, "The Father jWorketh hitherto, and I work," "I can of mine own self do nothing." Chris tian Science eschews so-called mortal mind force or suggestive therapeutics as religiously as it does the inert drug. In Christian Science practice, "the ef fectual, fervent prayer of the right- ' eous availeth" in the operation of spir itual wholesome Truth on human minds and bodies, and the patient is uplifted and healed physically and morally through spiritual means. This , latter fact, let once more remind our good critic, is the vital point of dis tinction which he signally fails to ! grasp, prompting him, as we have seen. : j to make repeatedly unreasonable and. 'unkind statements relative to our faith i , and our sincerity, and necessitating our repeated corrections. The reading public by this time well knows the result of the recent legal proceedings against Mrs. Eddy, as to render it unnece? sary for us to correct jour critic's unkind reference thereto ; in the opening paragraphs of his last 1 letter. In conclusion, let us call attention to the fact that in all that has been said j by contributors to the columns of the ; Palladium derogatory of Christian Sci : ence, not one bit of scripture has been : quoted to offset our contentions, nor ' one bit of argument offered to that jend. Volumes could be written on medical practice without refuting one vestage of the trvth of Christian Sci ; ence. and ail the contumely and Invec tive that can be heaped upon us will weigh not one iota aeainst our conten tion for spiritual, divine methods of healing. As we stated in our first ar ticle, spiritual things and facts can be discerned only spiritually, by Dr. Thurston or any one else, and to con tend for or against spiritual facts on a purely material basis as does our crit ic, is utter folly, and places one in the same compromising position as that in which Xicodemu3 found himself when he went to our Lord "by night." Christian Scientists, however can say to such as pur critic, after all is said and done. "Let there be no strife." for "we be brethren" and "they who are j not against us are for us." Sincerely, R. STANHOPE EASTERDAY. Christian Science Committee on Publi catloa for Indiana. WE believe that Post C, T. P. A. has something to do if it would discuss the shipping situation in Richmond in the meet ings. For several months past Richmond has bad deplorable service from our heavily subsidized C, C. & L. railway, and unquestion ably citizens of Wayne township have not been getting the freight service from this road that should be expect ed. We are, however, in possession of information that they expect to do better now, and are endeavoring to handle the freight In some kind of time. Recently shipments have been from a week to ten days reaching points between twenty and forty miles distant. We think that there la excel lent work for our railroad committee to inform the members that they are willing to take ud matters of this kind and that at any time the C. C. & L. or any transportation company fails to give us the desired service, that the subject should. b discussed and acted on by the Travelers' Protective association. Further than this the interurban freight service in and out of Richmond east has been tied up en tirely for many months. This has been a detriment to the traveling men goine out of our city, as it has iven teir competitors in other cities an pdvantnee over them to points east on the Interurban. Points west on the interurban have ben ropcbed. b'it only by the nonces hauline the freight a half a mile to tret it loaded. The fcil'ties of the inter urban for handling incom'n and out point freight at thir car barns is cer tainly not satisfactory. We bel'eve that if some of the mem bers of our most honorable c'ty coun cil had some personal Interests in this condition, or if our "8nvnx Like" c'ty attorney had some shinning interests at stake, they would do some "taller hustling" to eet this matter adjusted tMn they have been doinsr. The traveling men, business men and shippers have been woefully im nosed upon and they have been taking their medicine without a grunt, but te time may come when forbearance 11 cease to be a virtne and they w'll fel that tVey have bn imposed nton enoueb. and then it will be anything to ffof q freierht cerv'ce. Patriotism Is allr'eht when it d-"s rot c"t too much. Ve tb'nk tWs 's a Matter that can be d'se'issed profi tably in our post rneet.fnsrs as ah of our members are interested In it. Passenger Service Improved. In making the above suggestions re lative to the freiprht service we will state, that there seetis to be but l!ttle complaint registered regarding pas senger service on any of the steam or electric roads. Excellent service is evidently rendered in this department of the transportation companies, as members never say anything about any Impositions as they formerly d!d. We also suppose from the fact that no member ever complains, that the hotels visited in this part of the coun try are in excellent condition, and we believe they are. We believe that Indiana and Ohio have the best class ! of hotels of any of tho states In the United States and that our most gen-j ial landlords that wo meet in visiting the various towns of this section of the country ought to be congratulated for their treatment of their guests and the most excellent service that they render them. Takes it All Back. We are more than pleased to state that we will take baci. all the things we said last week aoout our most worthy president and officers of Post C. in general, as the rooms are being overhauled in excellent condition and we are to have a ladies' night next Saturday night An excellent enter tainment will be provided for this oc casion and all the members and their families should be in attendance and enjoy a pleasant evening. Visitors are Welcome. We were pleased to have with us on Friday night Thad McCowan of Hag erstown and Dow Adamson of New Castle. Thad is as clever and genial as ever and looks very young for a man of his advanced vears, and Dow seems to be prosperous and happy al though his tendency toward baldness is painfully noticeable. Printed Invitations. A nicely printed invitation will be mailed each member this week invit 'ng them and their families to the la dies' night entertainment next Satur day night. Please come up. MINOR NOTES. The members of Post C regret ex- iceedingly to learn of the misfortune of the Jos. A. Goddard Co., at Mun cie. We sincerely trust that they will soon be filling orders again.
