' HOW THE SOCIALISTS AN INTERESTING QUESTION HAS EEEN presented as to how the so cialists are going to vote this year for president. Attorney Harlan Bixby, who is a leader of the socialist party in quainted with rock-ribbed and rational He finds that Mr. Bryan, the democratic the essence of socialism, the socialism which the profound thinkers of the day only can discuss understandingly. Other Hammond socialists have quite fallen in with Mr. Bixby's views. In this light it is timely to note the declara tion of Colonel Thomas V. Higginson, cialists and deepest thinkers, who says profounded to him: "I can readily say that I unquestionably mean to vote for Mr. Taft as president rather than for his opponent, whom I have learned by observation to regard as an essentially shallow and "In regard to socialism I have done of the subject in our colleges because avoidance of the whole subject which years ago, and which I have heard strongly advocated by college professors This period is now beginning to pass by the introduction of such courses as of social reform, socialism, the single mote such studies that I joined the should be only too ready, were I a dent in these courses. That such studies should be extended into the pre paratory schools I have never even suggested, these schools .being quite overworked already." REPUBLICANS EAGER THE PREDICTION MADE BY The Times several days ago that harmony would prevail between the friends of Governor Hanly and the republican leaders who were alarmed at the consequence of the call for a special session of the general assembly, has come true. The republican legislative pro gram has been adopted and it has received Governor Hanly's endorsement. The split prophesied with much gusto by the democrats, has not come to pass. There is peace and good humor in the republican camp. The members of the state organization and the governor's party are working hand in hand and there is a getting together that is The republicans believe now that the county option bill will pass. They insist that they will have votes to spare. Democrats claim that the re publicans will not be able to draw any votes from the minority, and they expect to embarass the republicans as much as they can. This, of course, will furnish the republican campaigners ing days of the campaign and will simply force the issues for the democrats until It will be the brewers against the Indiana are going to give the brewers WHAT DO YOU think Mr. Union Man of a presidential candidate who is charged in an affidavit sworn to by a union labor official with having called workingmen "public beggars"? known as the loyal friend of labor, the battles for labor than any other living who called workingmen "public beggars." & THE PEOPLE OF THIS country Bryan by his past performances. Suppose free silver was rampant in this country now; suppose government ownership was; suppose the initiative and referendum ruled, what then? Mr. Bryan is admitted to have been wrong in the past. Is it safe to trust a nation in the hands of a man who has been wrong? We do not consider it wise to recommend a doctor whose patients are all in the cemetery. THIS DATE IX HISTORY.

There is a lot of significance in the song, "Everybody Takes a Vacation bnt Father." , , As n rule, American fathers do little vacationing. But there are fathers and fathers. With the coming of the hot months there is an exodus of the families of the Four Hundred from the cities. Brigades cf fashionably dressed wives crowd the piazzas of the resort hotels. Sons go the pace at the races or 6well resorts. Daughters go to Europe. The man who draws the checks stays in town, mostly by choice, to make the wheels of business go round. But there are others. There are tired and nervous wives and mothers who need rest and relaxa tion who go to some quiet place. The children go along. They all need the open spaces, the running water, the air and sunshine. The family purse permits no splurge. Father stays by the stuff. To him come souvenir postals and cute mes sages for "pop." To him come most precions! love letters like "she" used to write before they were married. How the "old man" glows and gloats over the bits of news how Johnny tried to walk a log and fell into-the creek, and how Susie fed the calf. He swells huge when Mollie and the kids write they are having the time of their lives. It might be hard to guess who is the happier those who go or him who stays. And when they all come back! It is easy to pick out father as he waits nervously and happily at the depot The bunch his bunch is on that train. He looks anon at his watch and smiles. And when the train pulls in his old sweetheart's kiss is on his Hps! There is a big bear hug from the kids. Father is about the happiest man in the town. Forgotten is the long, hard pull at business; forgotten the hot, weary days and forgotten the lonesome even ings in the lonely house. His folks are back! "Mamma" is strong again. And the kids are brown and happy as the birds. You see, the tie that binds the bunch, at home or in vacation, is the kind that will not come untied. The vacation of the families of the Four Hundred Is simply husband and father desertion. The other kind is How different! was known as an intimate friend of the German emperor. Mr. Bigelow has made a special study of modern his tory and colonial administration and has lectured on those subjects before several leading universities. During the Spanish-American war he repre sented the London Times in Cuba. In 1906 he attracted attention to himself by several articles he wrote in crlti cism of the policy of the administra tion in the construction of the Panama canal.

When In doubt wait for Time to wtraijthten out the tangle. Hint for Candidates. The Salina (Kan.) Journal tells of a farmer who had the following sign hung on his gate: "Mr. Candidate: I am very busy; don't look for me. You will find the axe in the woodshed, the hoe hangs on the garden fence, the weed scythe has just been ground Take your pick of the tools, and if you can convince my wife that you are really in earnest about saving the country you can depend on getting my vote on election day."

Wonder if any statistician has kept track of the babies that have been christened Theodore in the past five years. The opinion has been voiced and we think it in a very ttood one, that the unwritten law nhould be repealed once for all and never heard of again.

The growth of the socialist vote in Idaho, Utah and Colorado is said to bo a subject of keen concern to the poll ticlans of both the old parties. The socialist vote in 1900 in Colorado was 2,000, and only a few hundred In the other states. In 1904 the socialists polled 4,038 votes for Debs, and In the state election in 1906 cast 16,000 votes for their candidate for governor. Their vote in Idaho and Utah has increased to 5,000 or 6,000. The generally ac cepted explanation of this is that the greater part of the membership of the Western Federation of Miners are so cialists and vote the socialist ticket.
