We can not help but feel that the Item in its editorial of last night has confused the issue in regard to Wayne county's congressional candidates. The Item, after justly stating that it had no personal candidate for any office and calling attention to the well recog nized honesty of the three men who are contesting for Wayne county's delegation to the district convention, stated that it felt that Wilfred Jes sup, the present prosecuting; attorney, was being fought in his campaign by the "elements of disorder and graft and blackmailing in this county." And under this assumption the Item advo cated that the people owed it to them selves to stand solidly behind Mr. Jes up in his race for the honest manner in which he haw fulfilled his duties as prosecutor and. for the fulfilling of which, it is claimed, he is now being opposed in his race for congress. In fact this quotation from the Item's ed itorial sums up the whole situation: ' Were Mr. Jessup a private citizen as are the two other estimable men who are opposing him, or was his official capacity other than that which it is, The Item would not lend its influence be that great or small, in his behalf, as against his opponents who are wor thy men. But the office of prosecut ing attorney is being passed upon by this primary." Now there is where we disagree with ta view taken by the Item. We do not believe Mr. Jessup's official capac ity enters in any manner into this con gressional campaign. When Mr. Jes sup became a candidate for congress he became. In the eyes of the people, a private citizen, seeking the highest honor the district can give. He was on a plane with the other two Wayne county candidates. It was not Prose cutor Jeesup who was seeking the Wayne county delegation, but Wilfred Jessup, private citizen. If he is suc cessful in the coming primary that does not mean a vindication of his course as prosecutor. Nor if he is de feated will it mean that the citizens of Wayne county were against him be- cause he was a law enforcing prosecut-i or. It is wrong to allow the idea to! go forth that the lawless and corrupt element of Wayne county is working against Mr. Jessup and in favor of his opponents. Both the other candidates are clean, upright, wholesome men, as the Item has stated, and both have a wide circle of friends, admirers and supporters. And by this we mean that these friends and supporters rep resent, the flower of the citizenhood of this county. Just such supporters as Wilfred Jessup likewise has behind him. Consider for one moment the fact that Wilfred Jessup has served more than one term as prosecuting at torney. He was as much of a law en forcing prosecutor during his first term as he was during IhK his last term. Yet two years ago he was re nominated and re-elected. Does not that show that the lawless and disor derly element were not much of a pow er when it came to displacing an offi cer who stood high in the regard of the people for his rigid adherence to his oam oi ouicer uatner would we think that the lawless element, if they are so opposed to Mr. Jeasup, would be behind him in his race for congress in order to get him out of the county if possible. The office of pros ecuting attorney is not being passed upon by this primary. Jessup, Yen cer and Campbell, the private citizens, nre the ones who are being passed up on. If Mr. Jessup is defeated it doe.; not mean that his successor as prose cutor roust bow to the lawless clement In order to expect further political ad vancement. The office of prosecutiiijj attorney is not to be considered a eteppins stone to higher political of fice, it is an office the holder of vhieh is expected by the county to fill according to his oath. If his recori Is such as ;o earn the people's highest confidence thai is a political asset K ' may use as he sees fit in seeking high er office. lint the mere fact, that any man has been prosecuting attorney .Iocs not entitle- him, for the past, of fice's sake, to exptct other candidates' riends to rally ; his support. CUT OUT THE STAR CHAMBER SESSIONS. The couLty centra! coiuuiiut'C makes a great mistake in being too secretive. The session Saturday afternoon at which the charges preferred by Frank Jeuklneoa in regard to the race lor county treasurer were aired, resem bled nothing so much as a star cham ber session. There was nothing about this case that should not have been In vestigated, so that the public could have been fully Informed as to what took place. The charges preferred by Mr. Jenkinbon were made public in the newspapers. It would have been no more than right that the newspa pers should have been permitted to have had a representative present at the hearing at the court house. But reporters were excluded. Now why this secrecy'. What was there that the county central committee could not have carried on before the repre sentatives of the newspapers? No proceedings of the circuit court are kept from the newspapers. Why, then, should the county central com mittee pursue such a policy of secrecy? It would be well, possibly, to revert to the old days when the meetings of the county central committee were public, when it had no secrets and, consequently no need of star chamber sessions. Today is ground hog day. If his shadow docsn's scare his hoggish maj esty back into his hole the freezing weather will, so what's the use of ex pecting an early spring?

Man forgets the favors others do him but remembers those he has shown others. When a man has done wrong, one of the greatest horrors of his life is the friend who has a perfect memory. It is the young men who think a great deal of themselves; a man never thinks much of himself after he be comes thoroughly acquainted. The man who doesn't care if he los es an hour himself is very much put out to find that his watch has lost half a minute. If you must loaf, get out of the sight of your industrious friends. It does a man no good to loaf where he !s known. , There is a good deal of talk of for giving and forgetting, but do men and women ever forget or forgive a wrong? Sometimes they pretend to, but we doubt their sincerity. The Business College. Among tho pupils on tho sick list are Harry Lawrence, Cecil Clopp, Rob ert Draver, May Anderson and Belva Whitsell.

Mark Twain blossomed out with a new dog's tale at the weekly banquet of the Pleiades club at the Ifaette-Hrevoort. The ttieme of the humorist was "How It Pays to be Honest When it Doesn't Hurt Yourself." He said he was starv ing with a chap named Davis in Wash ington in the latter sixties, and Davis told Twain to go out and rummage for $3 for Scotch whiskey, while he'd stay home and pray. Twain said he came into a hotel and ame on the prettiest dog he had ever seen in the lobby. Gen. Nelson A. Miles came in with READS 1908 Here's Where We Are Told (Washington Post.) Will Taft be the nominee for presi dent? Will there be war with Japan? Will John D. pay his fine? Will the fleet reach its destination?

A Democratic Union The local unions of the Internation al Typographical Union are about to nominate candidates for the various international offices. Nominations are made at the regular February meetings of the unions. The election will take place on the third Tuesday in May. In asmuch as the typographical union is the oldest and best conducted trade union on the American continent. Information as to its methods of self- government will be of particular inter est at this time. Many persons outside the ranks of organized labor are unfamiliar with the democracy that prevails in almost all trade unions. Aui a democratic body the International Typographical Union of North America is a pioneer, and stands pre-eminent as such in the organized labor movement. The typographical union is a free association of economic equals, men and women, tor be it known women are admitted to membership in this organization upon the same basis as men. mm nf the cardinal orineinles of the union being equal pay for men and women for equal service performed. The international union is composed of unions scattered throughout the United States and Canada, and its jur isdiction extends from Alaska to the Philippines. Each local union admin isters its local affairs in conformity with international rules and regula- tions, said rules and regulations being developed by the combined local unions and administered by a central body known as the executive council ; in the interest of the locals. This ex-1 ecutive council is composed of certain ; of the international officals. who are elected by the referendum for terms of , two years. When more than fifty years ago rep- j tesentatives from the unions scattered' throughout the United States met and i organized a national body, which le- Veloped into t present international oi gamzatoiii. the initiative and lefer cnuuin were but little known or used, to that up to about ten jears. ago the annual convention, composed of dele gates from affiliated unions, elected all of the international officers and formulated the rules and regulations. This has now been changed. While the annual delegate convention is re tained, all of the international officers are nominated and elected by the refer endum, legislation is initiated aud all constitutional laws and amendment: must be submitted to the referendum. The officers of all local unions an elected by the local referendum. Is facL the way in which these men an i women associated in a voluntary 01 i ganization for their collective beneiis ' govern themselves is one of the g: ft expositions of democracy extant. Not only doe each local union g, ern itself, hut each union shop is us fianize-! into a chapel, the member. eiect a chairman and secretary, am' such oih.er officers as tho may deen. necessary . dependiuc upon size of tiv: chape!. The chapel formulates and adopts rules for government of lis members and It is the duty of chap-'" officers to see that all union and chape laws are lived up to. These chape' are not only for the benefit of men: bers. but are a protection to the en. ployers, as the members are as zealoti in seeing that the office rules are ob served as they are to see thai the union laws are lived up to. All members of a union have a voir: iu the discussion of all matters before three months' salary. Miles saw Twa. fondling the dog and offered him s; for the anin.al.

PREMATURE OBITUARIES. One of the traditions of the office of the New York Herald has to do with an editor who was a great upholder of the infallibility of his paper. It sim ply couldn't make a mistake. A flustered citizen once burst into his offIce anrt bustled up to the editor. ial desk. "See here!" he demanded. "This obituary notice. It's all wrong!" "What's wrong about it?" asked the editor in calm confidence. "Why, it's about me. I'm not dead!" "If the Herald says you're dead," sternly replied t tho editor, "you're dead. But," he added magnanimously. j -jf ycm don't like being j print your birth notice." dead wo'll His attitude was rather different from that of another editor, who, on being shown by tho man most inter ested that the death of the complain ant was falsely reported, apologized profusely and offered to make it all right.
