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.
His Subject Was Mendell's
Law of Inheritance, Point
ing Out Feature Applicable
To Agricultural Pursuits.
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

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
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
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,
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

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.
