I ' Tfce As.srlsrt.net Assorkasi And Now California ' When California Joins Iowa and Kansas in political conduct stamp ed "heretical- in Danville, 111., it becomes less possible to give an ans wer by use of any of the ready reasons heretofore employed to explain that the protest thus expressed Is produced by hysterical and ranting demagogues. When Kansas spoke up the stand pat consolation waa that "Kansas has to do a thing of that sort once In a while." It was not an Intelligent consolation then sad It cannot bo applied now as a poultice to the place where California struck. The success of . Hirsm Johnson, progressive republican candidate ., for nomination, for governor, has a significance that Is of Interest beyond the coast, but the protest may have expressed itself even more emphatically. If the early reports of the defeat of Congressman Duncan E. McKIn lay of the Second California district by William Kent be sustained by completed figures we have another Instance of a member of the Old . Guard yielding to a radical. McKinlay was employed early in the efforts to put an end to insurgency. He was sent from Washington to several of the western states as a pacifier and soother. He went Joyously and worked ineffectively, but returned optimistically. Even if it be found that be has survived a close rsce, he, as John Dalzell of the Thirtieth Pennsylvania district did before him, will observe the primary returns in a chastened mood. There could be no disguising of the Issue between a man of Kent's disposition and habits of thought and a man like McKinlay. When other states have recorded themselves it may become apparent to the men who seek to guide the republican party that Insurgency is a thing not to ' be fought in the trenches but to be taken into the councils of the organ ization. Chicago Tribune. Items Gathered In From Far and Near Does It .Prohibit? New York Times. The publication of ttao Internal rev enue receipts for the fiscal year just ended tempts us again to inquire what effect. If any, the widespread Prohibi tion movement of recent years has had upon the actual drinking habits of the people. According to the Unit ed States Statistical Abstract the per capita consumption of distilled spirits la 1897 was 1.02 gallons, of malt liq uors 14.94 gallons, with wines making a total of 16.50 gallons for each man, woman and child of the whole popula tion; in 1900 the per capita consump tion of malt liquors had risen to 19.79 gallons, of distilled spirits to 1.37 gal lons, and these, with wines, 21.85 gal lons. The maximum per capita con sumption was in 1907 23.54 gallons. The Internal revenue from fermented liquors rose from 132,472,162 in 1897 to $57,456,411 in 1900, and to $60,572, 000 In 1910. The revenue from spir its showed a growth In like ratio from $82,008,643 In 1897 to $134,868,034 in 1909, and to $148,000,000 In 1910. The per capita consumption of malt and spirituous liquors during 1910 ha? not yet been estimated. But the in ternal revenue receipts hold forth slight hope that prohibition has ac complished more than to stimulate the thirst of the new Prohibition states. Perfectly Corking Time.

IF YOU ARE FAT AND HOT READ THIS ARTICLE There Is no necessity of fat people suffering as they do. Moat fat people are so good-natured thev do not rare how they look or how they get along during the hot weather. As a matter of fact there Is a natural fat reducer that In the past several years has been demonstrating that It will reduce fat and not tear down the body or leave Mg. flabby rolla of akin and wrinkles.

Per sons who have been fortunate enough to be possessors of telegraph franks must now join the great army of com mon people who have to pay tor their messages. From now on the use of the telegraph frank will not be permit ted by law except by employes of the companies. This rule is only one of a number of similar restrictions which went into effect yesterday as parts of the amendment to the interstate commerce law passed by Congress last June, but which did not receive much attention at the time. In addition to the abolition of the franks the amend ment provides for the publication of all telegraph rates by the companies, and although the companies will be permitted to establish rates for night and day, for boards of trade and other lines of special business, all tariffs, when made, will be subect to revision by the interstate commerce commis sion. FORCE OF GRAVITY. Hew It Would Affset Man's Weight on the Celestial Bodies. If the planet Mars be really inhab ited tbe people wbo live there must be an exceedingly agile race. The av erage weight, of a man is about 140 pounds, but the force of gravity on Mars Is so much less than on the earth that the 140 pound man would weigh only fifty-three pounds If he were transported thither. With such light weigbt. and still retaining tbe same strength, an individual would be able to run with tbe speed of an express train, go skipping over ten foot walls and do various other ex traordinary things. On tbe moon a man would be even ligbter. But on the sun our 140 pounder would have his troubles. Instead of being an airy individual he would weigh in tbe neighborhood of a . ton and tbree-nartcrs. He would prob ably have the greatest difficulty in raising bis band, for that member would weigh about 300 pounds. According to scientific computation, a man who on earth weighs 140 pounds would on the other relestlal bodies weigh as follows: Tbe moon, 23 pounds; Mars, 53 pounds; Venus, 114 pounds; Mercury. 119 pounds; Neptune, 123 pounds; Uranus, 127 pounds; Saturn, 165 pounds; Jupiter. 371 pounds, and the sen, 3,871 pounds.

Predicts Insurgent Landslide In the State of Washington The following is an extract from a letter written by Frank W. Harned to relatives here in Richmond. It will give a good idea of the political situ ation on the Pacific Coast: In this part of tbe country politics l.gure as about the only hot thing we have. Last Tuesday night at the Grand Opera House here In Seattle, the senatorial candidates including 3 stand-patters or Cannon men, and the one insurgent, Polntdextei appeared on tbe stage before the Young Men's Republican Club and wbile three of the stand-patters are Seattle men and the Insurgent Pointdexter hails from Spokane on the eastern side of tbe mountains, the meeting was decidedly Pointdexter In sentiment. The "Ma chine" candidates were greeted with jeers and derision and Pointdexter waa welcomed with enthusiasm and tumul tuous applause. The voters are awake and are casting off tbe yoke of the po litical bosses. Tbey see who among tbe political aspirants ring true to their interests and wbo are interested in the party machine and themselves. This country was never so aroused before nor have the masses seen so clearly and distinguished so nicely in things political before as they do now. Roosevelt roused tbe dormant con science of the people, but could not see beyond the confines of the Repub lican Party Machine. The insurgents have outdistanced him, in fact have gone far beyond him and tbe people, now thoroughly aroused will go be yond the present stand of the insur gents and any or all wrong officials or principals that may stand In their way will be wrecked by the destruc tive energy of the impending political cyclone. The day of the people Is at band and this country is to be trans formed. The dog-collars that have gaiied the necks of the poor and com mon are to be broken and trampled under foot. At the Thursday night meeting Senator Pile, wlfo is one of Cannon's lackeys, tried to explain why be bad supported Cannon, and wbile they jeered him be mopped the prespiration of his embarrassment and looked like "thirty cents." Pointdexter, the digni fied insurgent, quieted the noisy crowd with the wave of his hand, or Piles would have been unable to finish. When Piles wanted to defend Taft In Taft's declaration that the Aldrich ta riff bill was the best that had ever been passed, the crowd hooted, crying "Aldrich" and "Corporation Rule," and then cheered Pointdexter and chant Heart to Heart Talks. By EDWIN A. NYE. Copyright, 1908. by Edwin A. Nye , i WHY? Why pain? Why suffering? . Sinew tbe world began the unan swered cries have been wrung from suffering souls. When you see somebody suffer, from no fault of his own perhaps, you sym pathize and philosophize. Why should any one suffer? Why should the Inno cent suffer for the guilty? You find the only answer in the perfecting of character. But Pain or sorrow comes to you to YOU. Ah, that's different- Somehow the philosophy does not fit You do not see tbe need of perfecting your character. You question the righteousness of your suffering, and, it may be. rail against Providence. Thou foolisb one! Sorrow and suffering are stern teach ers, true enough, but you are a dull scholar! Your tears fall on the page of tbe lesson and you rebel against tbe discipline of tbe school. But revolt Is useless. You may play truant at times, but you cannot get away from tbe school. .Aye. foolisb one. Why cbide tbe teachers? Face your lesson and learn It! Pass under tbe rod. Hare yon . rend some of tbe short stories of tbe late O. Henry? Well. It turns out since his death that this man at one time In bis life was a prison convict. It matters not what bis of fense may bare been it Is now suf ficient to say to wbat heights he had climbed and out of what depths! It issuers not what' bis suffering was. That It must have been keenly felt those may well know who have enfyd tbe sensitive soul of tbe re markable writer. But out of It all be perfected a rare soul that knew bow to companion wltb other souls through bis pen. kuew how to bring smiles and cbeer and a warm sympathy for tbe suffering and a genial tolerance for all. and.a teaching of wise resignation tn affliction. How? Wby? f Tbe furnace of trial through which he passed did not destroy, but only refined, the gold of his genius, and made of him a ministering spirit. Hsd this rare man never passed through the ugliness of tbe chrysalis stage, be never would bar come out of it tbe brilliant butterfly of genius. We cannot all come op through sor row to such perfection: but we all may learn, in time, that tbe bitter cup of life that la offered us may be tbe very Bast cup from which we should drink SPECIAL TRAIN SERVICE TO - GREENVILLE Via Pennsylvania Lines, August . 24 and 25. account Dark County , Fair. jueave Kicnmond. 8:00 a. m Central time. " aug 1WS-20-23 arlil frosa iHsasis lissSils "" " ed his name over and over. When Piles said. "No one man wrote that tariff bill." some one in the audience yelled "Cannon helped, and the au dience laughed uproarously.. They could not raise a cheer for any other candidate except Pointdexter and nothing but fraud at the primary elec tion can prevent his being triumphant ly nominated at the Republican can didate for U. S. Senator from Wash ington. When some one in tbe au dience called out "What's the matter with Wilson?" and a large man In tbe center of . the hall arose with one hand to his ear and cried, "Who's that said Wilson?" and the crowd sbouted with laughter. Wilson is the editor of the Post Intelligencer,, the great po litical organ of the Republican Party here. He was one time senator from this state but like Mr. Jeffries of de ceased prize-ring fame, he can't "come back." The editor of. the Democratic paper, "The Seattle Times." never speaks of Wilson, except as "The Pren nial," referring to bis yearly candi dacy. Another aspirant (of Seattle) for the nomination on the Republican ticket for U. S. Senator is Judge ThomsS Burke, a millionaire who has accumu lated, bis wealth as attorney for the Great Northern Railroad. He Is the candidate of the corporation Interest, just as Wilson is the candidate of the "Machine" politicians. The third Se attle candidate is John Humphries, who is an honest man but tied to the Republican Party, and has been con tinuously seeking office without break or intermission since he was 21 years nf as. He has served a good pur pose in what he has continuously kept before the voters, the fact that Judge Burke, (the candidate of the corpora tion) is in favor of the Japanese, Burke at one time, having urged tbe passage of a law granting citizenship to the Orientals. While this has not enchanced Humphries political chances in the least, it has seriously injured those of Burke and increased the tide-flood of voters pouring toward Pointdexter. It looks now as If Pointdexter would receive more votes In the primaries that the other five was received with a burst of applause. He began to stating that he had been a Republican for 1G years and "No body could read blm out of the party." He declared that there was a vast dif ference between the Republican party and the men who at times got control of the Machine. He is the personifica tion of manliness, straight-forward honesty and justice. He will win. II IS MOVING WEST Center of Population Has Left Indiana and Settled in Illinois. WAS NEAR COLUMBUS, IND. Chicago, Aug. 18. The , center of population of the United States has moved westward from Ohio, cleared Indiana with a jump and landed in Il linois unless the census bureau ex perts are mistaken. Between 1890 and 1000 the population center, then down in Ohio, changed less than during the 100 years preceding. The change landed it at a point in Ohio in a hick ory, grove 0 miles southeast of Colum bus, Ind. To reach Illinois it will have to move some" 70 miles, but it ex ceeded that distance in the decade be tween 1850 and 18tiO, when It left the vicinity of Parkersburg, West Vir ginia, to roost 20 miles south of Chill cothe, Ohio. The "star of empire" has marched almost due westward srnce it got its start in 1700 east of Baltimore about 23 miles. By 1810 it was 40 miles northwest of Washington, D. C By 1820 it was ntar Woodstock. Va and then the migrations to western states began to move the center west ward into West Virginia' at a lively clip. In 18SO the theoretical or rath er mathematical center was in south ern Ohio, only 8 miles southwest of Cincinnati. Just where the next cen sus and those 10, 20 and 50 years in the future will locate that population center is a matter of keen Interest to southern and western States. Remark able growth of population in the southwest and west are shown by the present census. During the lsst two weeks figures for Texas have been made public, and they show that coun ties that ten years ago were sparse ly settled now have from J 5,000 to 23.000 population each. The remark able increase in the population In Ok lahoma must also, be taken into con sideration In ' speculation as to where the center of population Is like ly' to "light : -' But there have been large increases in population In the east particularly in the larger cities. POINT FOR CRIPPEN (American Jfews Servlee) London. Aug. 18 Dr. H- H. Crippen. held in Quebec for tbe murder of his wife. Belle Elmore, gained v a legal point today when Arthur Newton, the solicitor, retained to represent him here, secured permission to make an independent medical examination of the cellar of the Crippen hame at 39 Hilldrop Crescent, North London. It was there that the mutilated body declared to be Belle Elmore's was found burled in quicklime. : Newton made his application for per mission through Scotland Yard soon after he waa retained In the case. Al though red tape prevented a decision on the request till now, it was said un officially soma Urn aso that It would be favorable. A ustria-Hungary Celebrates Birthday of Emperor Today (American News Service.) Vienna, Aug. 18. In every town and village of the polygot dual mon archry of Austria-Hungary, the eigh tieth anniversary of the beloved ruler, Francis Joseph I., was observed today by popular demonstrations of loyalty 'and devotion. ; AH public and many private buildings were profusely deco rated with the national colors and portraits of the venerable monarch were displayed in great number The Deuma were celebrated in all the churches and business, everywhere, was at a standstill. Practice exercis es and military parades formed the salient feature of tbe celebration in all larger communities. As usual, in deference to the wishes of the aged ruler, comparatively little money was spent for displays, while large sums were contributed to the fund for chari table and philanthropic institutions to which the-emperor also liberally sub scribed. . The official celebration in tbe capl tal included the usual receptions of the diplomatic corps,-the heads of the parliament and the diets, the numbers of the two cabinets, the chiefs of the army,, the navy and the various fiscal departments and of the mayor and oth er officials of the city of Vienna. In the morning the emperor attended mass and in the afternoon the cus tomary review of the garrison ended the official part of the celebration. Francis Joseph I was born August 18, 1830 and ascended the throne in the early winter of 1848. He Is the nestor among the world's rulers and It is a curious fact that with the ex ception of the King of Greece and the Sultan of Turkey no independent mon arch reigning today was alive even when Francis Joseph became Emperor King after the abdictlon of his weak ling uncle Ferdinand during the stormy days of the revolution. Notwith standing his advanced age and in spite of the chain of sorrows, disappoint ments, misfortunes and even tragedies which have marked his career and sad dened, if not embittered his life, the emperor is still hale and rugged of health and capable of enduring hard ships that would tax the strength of even a much younger man. Hunting in the mountains, where the nimble game leaps from crag to crag, is still the favorite recreation Of the emperor, who has always been a mighty nim rod and an exceptionally fine marks man. It Is probably due to his love of out-door exercise and the simplicity of his fare that he has retained bis health and strength to such a remark able degree. The emperor's path of . life has been neither smooth nor strewn with roses. He ascended the throne at a critical period, w ith the odds against him, and bis reign has been a continuous strug gle against unfortunate conditions, but also to win the universal love of his subjects conclusively proves his a man ot unusual ability and force of charac ter, one .of the greatest rulers of mod ern times. i " The fates seem to have conspired to make Francis Joseph the most un happy and most sorely tried of all modem monarchs. Not only did they surround him with difficulties and ob stacles of a political nature which fre quently threatened the. stability of his throne, but they visited him with a Family Reunion Open Season ' VEAL-CAIN. : The Veal-Cain reunion will be held August 19 in the John Catey grove, two miles southwest of Carlos City.

The unhappiness of his marriage to Elisabeth, the younger daughter. " of Duke Maxmillan of Bavaria, was the first great trouble. There have been many theories advanced as to the cause of the alienation ot the affec tion between tbe emperor and the em press. Whatever may have . been the actual cause, it continued until Elisa beth was assassinated in . Switzerland by the band of an anarchist. The next tragic event in the em peror's family came when his brother, Maximilian, the pup'pet emperor of Mexico, was executed at Quertaro. Maximilian's wife became Insane and is still living, ignorant of her hus band's fate. Tbe saddest blow was the mysterious death of bis only ' son. crown prince Rudolph, at his hunting lodge, near Meyerling. A few years later the emperor's sister-in-law, the Duchess d'Aleneon, burned to death at a charity' bazar in Paris. Archduke Johann, a nephew of the emperor, con tracted a mesalliance with a dancer and disappeared with her. Louis Vic tor, the sole surviving brother of the emperor, disgraced himself and was shorn of his rank.
