When Andrew Jackson Introduced the "spoils system,"" years ago, he provided American politics with a very potent weapon of offense and de fense, lit is only when friction arises that this force is displayed, for what it really te. Now is not the time to discuss whether it be right or wrong. The truth Is that this is a condition. The federal appointments play a larger part in the sustenance of men in public affairs than is accredited by the average obscure citizen. But even he does not need to be told that "patronage"" cuts a great figure in practical politics. Entered at Richmond. Indiana, post office as second class mail matter. eaaartseCaaieerttfti iKCMMMs WSJlHMl sTSSjSJBJBJSJSj (Nw Yaric City) kaa tdtottsstremUttea Only the tUrass et I te tta mart ass We are told in the press dispatches that the administration Is going to take a hand, in making war on the Insurgents. Patronage will be with held from theni, it is 6aid. And this is on the ground that the administra tion will not give patronage to those members of congress who will not help the administration to carry out its policies, and particularly its prom ises. On the face of it, this is fair enough. But what about the back ground? It is our impression that in the one important thing which has come up in tfcia congress( the tariff), it is the opinion of people hereabouts that the Insurgents did more to carry out the ostensible policies of the ad ministration than did the administration itself. Certainly these men did more to keep the promises of the national convention of the republican party; more to keep the promises of Mr. Taft in his speech of acceptance and in the other speeches which he made all over the country, than did Mr. Cannon and Mr. Aldrich. Heart to Heart Talks. By EDWIN A. NYE. Copy.ight, 1908, by Edwin A. Nye BARS ON TBE WINDOWS. "With what measure ye mete It shall be meted out to you." Robert Morrison of Brooklyn owned a big factory where he made celluloid. He put bars on the windows of the building to keep the burglars out. He failed to put lire escapes on the building to help bis employees get out In case of fire. Fire escapes would help the burglars to get In. One day not Jong ago there was a lire In Morrison's factory. Great quan tities of celluloid exploded. In a few minutes the doors were shut off by the flames. There was no way to get out but by the windows. But the windows were barred. My CSodf My boy is In therel" Streamed Robert Morrison. He tried to rush into the factory, but was held back by the police. He broke away and tried again. He was pain fully burned before the police reached bim. ' And there In the hands of the police be looked at the burning factory and the barred windows. Ten persons were tugging at the bars. Morrison aw the face of his son among the others and, then and there went in sane. The bars bad done their work. Ten bodies were taken out, among them that of young Morrison. For a week the family succeeded in guarding Morrison in his palatial bome. Early one morning be got into a bathroom and killed himself with gas. The law of compensation holds. He who takes all from the world and never gives, somehow, some time, some where there shall be "taken away even that which he hath." No man llveth to himself. Every man Is surely bound by a thousand intimate ties to every other man. You cannot rob another without robbing yourself. If you put up the bars to your win dows to keep your fellow man inside your selfish boundaries, have a care lest you or yours shall perish Inside the selfish circle. Beware of the bars on your win dows! Learn this That to love one's neighbor as one self, to do to others as you would be done by. is not true simply because the sentiment was uttered in the Ser mon on the Mount; it was uttered In that sermon because it is the only true rule of life and woven into the rery constitution of things. Miss Ida Lewis, keeper of the Lime Rock lighthouse at Newport, R. I., has been elected an honorary member of the Newport Yacht Club, Miss Lewis is also to be honored by having the new Hfesaving launch at Price's Neck liie-saving station named for her. She is known as the American Grace Dar , , . nag, u&ving rescued more persons from drowning than any other Amer lean woman. We ha the idea that the people in this section of the country feel the same way :j,bout the matter. Certain it is that Mr. Aldrich and Mr. Cannon will do everything in their power to keep the people from getting real representation in congress. (This is perfectly human and natural). Naturally, if Mr. Taft puts the weight of his power through patronage at the disposal of Mr. Cannon and Mr. Aldrich it will benefit them. The whole matter may then be summed up: If patronage is denied the Insurgents, it means that the administration stands for the perpetua tion of the strength of Cannon. And that as every one knows means the perpetuation of the iniquitous Hous Rules from which he derives his power. That in turn means that tb.3 administration has put up a barrier for the people to surmount in their fight for real representation and the light against Big Business.

Makers ARROW CUFFS. 25 cents a Pair When it comes to such a point fiat the offices of the people are distrib uted for their own chastisement ther will be something for them to reflect on. The Insurgents are not popula with the Cannon-Aldrich forces, be cause they insisted in the special ses ion that the promises of the adminis tration must be carried out. But th people have indorsed the Insurgents. Because of their action, the people have thought them worthy of Iheir confidence, because they kept their promises. If patronage is denied along these grounds it will not diminish their strength with the people. If the administration thinks to strengthen itself with, the people it will not help matters by denying patronage to the men who have fought for the people. A recognition of the Insurgents as the very men who are most anxious to carry out what purport to be the poli cies of the administration, less playing into the hands of Mr. Aldrich and Mr. Cannon, will strengthen the administration more with the people. Whether the spoils system is right or wrong it is a real condition the Insurgents are not read out of the party unless the people are read out of the party, and are therefore entitled to recognition. Any attempt to deprive the Insurgents of the means of re-election should be interpreted for what it is a playing into the hands of the enemies of the people who are the last ones in the country to help the administration carry out its promises. SWAY OF TAGGART IS ABSOLUTE AS SHOWN YESTERDAY If Gwinn of the Second Is Not An Anti-Taggart Man, Then There Is Not an "Anti" on The List. mix deeply in the selection of district chairmen. He Is All Powerful. Outside of Marshall there is no Democrat in Indiana who could make a fight against Tagart with any show of winning. Others have tried it and have fallen under the juggernaut. Marshall might do better that that, but he did not try. On the surface, therefore, there is an apearance of harmony that is beautiful to behold, and the Democrats are pointing with pride to the condition of their party at this time. The kind of "harmony" that really exists in th party at this time was displayed in its true form at the con ventions in the Tenth and Thirteenth districts, yesterday, when the district chairmen were elected. In the Tenth, it is reported that two Democrats en gaged in a fist fight over some trival matter, and thus give an exhibition of what an old fachloned Democratic convention was like. In the Thir teenth Senator Proctor, the State Sen ator from Elkhart county who fought the battles of the brewers in the last Legislature, created a scene by de nouncing the dele action from St. Joseph county. Now, if that is not harmony then what is it? 0SB0RN IS DELEGATE FROM THIS DISTRICT The New Committee Will Soon Elect Wroever the French Lick Boss Dictates as the State Chairman.

(Palladium Special) Indianapolis. Ind., Jan. 6. Tom Tag gart's sway over the Democratic par ty in Indiana was never more effect ually shown than it was yesterday in the election of members of the new Democratic state committee in the various districts. The new committee will be composed of the following members : First district Dr. T. D. Scales, Boouville. Second Fabius J. Gwinn, Shials. Third Max Storen, Scottsburg. Fourth Francis M. Griffith, Vevay. Fifth Peter M. Foley, Terre Haute. Sixth John H. Osborn, Greensburg. Seventh Bernard Korbly, Indian apolis. Eighth George T. Beebe, Anderson. Ninth William E. Longley, Nobles ville. Tenth Charles J. Murphy, Brooks ton. Eleventh Edward E. Cox, Hart ford City. Twelfth Edward G. Hoffman, Fort Wayne. Thirteenth Peter J. Kruyer, Ply mouth. Is a Taggart Body. If Gwinn is not an anti-Taggart man then there is not an anti on the en tire committee. It is known that all of the rest of the members are follow ers of the king of French Lick. This makes it certain that Taggart will or ganize the committee to suit himself when the members come to this city Saturday for that purpose. No matter what the rest of the Democrats think about it, he will elect whoever he pleases for state chairman. Of course, this does not necessarily mean that the man most favored by Taggart will be elected, because Tag gart is a great hand at the trading game and he might trade off the chair manship for something else if he found anything in sight that would But whatever is done will be done with the consent of Taggart, and Gov ernor Marshall and the rest of the fel lows will have to like it. Looks Like Jackson. Stokes Jackson will probably be re elected to the position of state chair man, because Taggart elected him chairman in the first place and it is believed he will do so again. The name of Joseph Cravens of Madison, may go before the committee as a can didate for chairman, but is is not be lieved now that such a thing is at all likely. He could not be elected with out the consent of Taggart, and it is safe to say that Taggart would never consent to his election. While Tag gart does not feel that Jackson is a giant, politically, yet he would suit him better than Cravens. It is regarded here as strange that the anti-Taggart Democrats did not make a better showing in the election of district chairman than they did. It was conceded all along that Tag gart would control the committee, but it was never for a minute supposed that Tagart would walk all over the opposition in this manner. He did n't leave a grease spot. Marshall Didn't Fight. Of course. Governor Marshall was not in a position to make much of a fight against Tagart, even if he had so desired, because there is na rea son, politically, why he should take any hand at all in the election of mem bers of the state committee. If Gov ernor Marshall expects to be a candi date for the nomination for Presi dent, and no one doubts that his name will go before the next national con vention, he will have the Democrats of Indiana behind him to a man, re gardless of everything. He will have the delegation, committee or no com mittee. Therefore, he could not gain anything for himself by fighting for control of the state committee. And this, it is pointed out by some of his friends, is the reason why he did not YOUNG MEN WANTED GOVERNMENT PAYS RAILWAY MAIL CLERKS $800 TO $1,400 A YEAR. Free Scholarships Are Offered.

The Erie railway has provided one car in some of its suburban trains for those who object to the steam heat and stuffy atmosphere of the regular cars. The cars carry signs reading "Fresh Air," and are started out with the doors, ventilators and alternate side windows wide open. Any person riding in these cars is privileged to close the window next to him, but has no right to insist on the closure of other ventilation openings. The will of the majority of those who ride in the cars will control the turning ou of the steam, which may be wanted in very cold weather. Those who find the cars too cold can always move to other cars in the trains. This, it is considered, is a novel but sensible of heating and ventilating cars in winter.

If what you just ate is souring ou your stomach or lie3 like a lump of lead, refusing to digest, or you belch gas, and erustate sour, undigested food or have a feeling of dizziness, heart burn, fullness, nausea, bad taste in mouth and stomach headache this is Indigestion. A full case of Pape's Diapepsin costs only 50 cents and will thoroughly cure your out-of-order stomach, and leave sufficient about the house in case some one else in the family may suffer from stomach trouble or indigestion.. Ask your pharmacist to show you the formula plainly printed on the SO-cent cases, then you will understand why dyspeptic trouble of all kinds must go. and why they usually relieve sour, out-of-order stomachs or indiges tion in five minutes. Diapepsin is harmless and tastes like candy, though each dose contains power sufficient to digest and prepare for assimilation in to the blood all the food you eat: be sides, it makes you go to the table wiOi a healthy appetite; but. what will please you most is that you will feel that your stomach and intestines are clean and fresh, and you will not need to resort to laxatives or liver pills for biliousness or constipation. This city will have many Diapepsin cranks, as some people will call them, but you will be cranky about this splendid stomach preparation, too, if you ever try a little for Indigestion or gastritis or any other stomach mis ery. Get some now, this minute, and for ever rid yourself of stomach trouble and indigestion. COUNTY CLERK. FRANK M. WHITESELL Candidate for County Clerk, subject to the Re publican nomination. GEO.
