James R. Hart. Ediur. S M Rutherford. Business Manager John S. FitzgiDbons. City Editor. - . . . . . , . . rTTtt "The fate of nations is still decided by their wars. You may talk of orderly tribunals and learned referees. You may sing in your schools the gentle praises of the quiet life. You may strike from your books the last note of every martial anthem, and yet out in the smoke and thunder will also be the tramp of horses and the silent, rigid, upturned faces. Men may prophesy and women pray, but peace will come here to abide here forever on this earth only when the dreams of childhood are the accepted charts to guide the destinies of men. "Events are numerous and mighty, and no man can tell which wire runs around the world. The nation, basking today in the quiet of content ment and repose, may still be on a deadly circuit and tomorrow writhing in the toils of war. This is the time when great figures must be kept in front. If the pressure is great, the material to resist it must be granite and iron." Kx-Governor Black of New York uttered these matchless sentences in liis speech nominating Theodore Roosevelt for the presidency. They are worthy the man who uttered them and the man for whom they were utter ed is a "great figure" and always in the front. Theodore Roosevelt in his home, and among his near friends, is vine and flower, but when the ex igencies of the times require it, he is "granite and iron." No vacillating, no compromising. He is always master of the situation and always con sistent. . V; .i&L.'iLil.hitlllJlliil During the last few days it was said that there is not much dif ference between Roosevelt and Parker. One man said: "They are a unit on the money question and that is to be an issue in this campaign." Well, yes, the money question will be an issue in this campaign, but it is not certain whether the two candidates for the presidency are a unit on this important question or not. There is one thing certain and that is that the Republican National convention knew just where President Roosevelt stood on the questions that will lie in the current campaign issues. It was not so with the delegates in the St. Louis convention. After the nomination was made, Mr. Park er beiran to dictate and tell the people what he wanted. Mr. Roosevelt snoke before the convention and was understood by the people. The American people despise duplicity and love frankness. There are many Democrats disappointed in the man of Esopus. They would rather know just where a man "is at." politically speaking, and then select bVui than to select him and find out where he is at afterwards. One of the exchanges that tomes to this office suggests that ihe Re publicans label this campaign "Roosevelt and Recklessness. " This cam paign slogan will draw hotter lhan "Dictator and Dives." Just before the Democratic National convention, Judge Parker, eo far as anyone knows, had no immutably settled views on the money question. Rut when he was nou.inated, it did not take him long to e press himself in a dictatorial message. The Democrats found an eld mm willing to accept the nomination for vice president. He s ir his secord ch'.'dhood so far as age is ei- ''rned, but just in the prime of life in his willingness to pay campaign bills. ' The American people have never yet become very enthusiatic in -supporting a party that has nothing better to offer as an excuse for its exis tence than an organized appetite for office. Colonel Bryan declares that tlie Democratic party needs men who will die for it. The most crying need just now seems to be for men who will vote for it. The butchers' strike came at the very best time in the year, feels just as well not to eat meat in July and August. One As Reviewed by Mr. Louis Ludlow in the Star. ? Indianapolis, July 14. The legisla tive convention, to be held one week from today, promises to be interest ing and exciting. A resolution in structing Marion county's ten mem bers .of the legislature to vote for ' Harry S. New for the United States senate until he requests the delega tion not to do so, will be offered, and Captain New's friends say they arc confident it will be adopted. Saptain New wants the senator ship. There is no doubt about it, al though for political reasons he does not desire to appear in the role of a candidate. At Chicago, just after Senator Fairbanks was nominated for vice president, friends of other sena torial candidates, in an excess of zeal, undertook to secure from Captain New a statement that he would not be a candidate. This angered him. He said then and there that he proposed to stand on his American right to be a candidate if he wanted to be and that he would not be dragooned into staying out of the race. Since then he has confided to some of his close friends that he would like to have the nomination. FOUNTAIN CITY. Angie Norman preached at the Wesleyan church last Sunday.

Several Citizens Interviewed on the Subject. Tlie proposition as stated by the Palladium last evening, to maintain and equip a band out of the public park fund, was tlie subject of a good deal of discussion this morning about town. Sides have been taken by taxpayers, one way or the other. While no doubt it would be a good thing, the park fund is too low a.t present. A representative of the Palladium inter viewed a number of the merchants and business men this morning and found that the larger part of them were of the opinion that, while a band might be a good thing the parks should be kept tip and improved con stantly at all means, and if the band project cut into the money for the parks, that the plan of a band should be dropped. Individual opinions dif fered of course, as to the wisdom and expediency of using park money for a band, some thinking that a band should be maintained at all accounts. The parks of Richmond are a source of pride, not only to the city, but to the country around, including all the cities and the general opinion is that they should be kept up. Richmond should have a band and our band boys should be encouraged. As Reported by the Department of Agriculture.

LEMUEL MOSS. Among, the dispatches this morning is one announcing the death of Dr. Lemuel Moss, who was president of Indiana University from 1S73 :o 1SS4. He was also president of th-a old Chicago University and editor of several P.aptist publications. He was among tlie foremost Baptist divines and was one of I he best pulpit orators in the country.

Prof. W. A. Fiske, who has been at the National Educational As sociation, the World's Fair and other points in the West, returned yes terday at noon. Mr. Fiske was one of tlie principal officers in the Na tional Association of Educators and presided over one of the most im portant branches of that body. He attended the Fair and was much impressed with its magnitude and content. After visiting the Fair, he spent a week in Iowa with his mother and other relatives. On his way home he stopped a day with Mrs. Fiske 's par ents at Creencastle. Today he is too busy to come into town. It is not generally known that Professor Fiske is a farmer as well as an up-to-date scholar and teacher, but the same is true and one has only to see his crops in order to feel the truth of this statement. i"H"i- -i-i i-i-i-i- V "The Way To Go" - 11 Special Rates vfa The Dayton and Western to Franklin, O.
