Gen. Madero, commander of the
revolutionary forces in Mexico, seems
to be a man of nerve. It is well for
the revolutionists that they have such
a man at their head.
Something like 1,100 plural mar

I doesn't prevent the Mormon t^nator

You hive laid the foundation for
a successful business life, my boy,
when you have learned to restrict
your expenditures within your in
come. Don't forget this.
Where the government pays out
$10 for the military it expends $1
for agriculture and about 30 cents
for education. And yet we call our
selves a civilized, Christian nation.
The Oklahoman says with more
than 20 applications for state bank
charters it doesn't look as though
the bark deposit guaranty law is
likely to eliminate the state banks
Good roads will pay the farmer
back in cash dividends. He 9hould
not hesitate to talk and vote for
every good road proposition. Good

county can have.
It is advisable for our people to

Read the testimony in the wireless

vinced of this fact.
Friends of Ambassador Hill circu
lated-a story that he had been forced
to relinquish his post at the Ger
man court to' make room for the
?appointment of a contributor to the
Taft campaign fund.
Its a good thing for the country
that a level headed, patriotic gen
tleman is president instead of the
blusterer of Oyster Bay. If Roose
velt was president instead of Taft
we would now be at war with Mexico.
It now looks as if the loquacious
Mr. Hines "put Lorimer over" too
far. iWhen he is investigated the
second time by the senate even
Bailey will not be able to save the
great beneficiary of fraud.
The following germs have been
found on milk and other tickets:
streptococci, staphtroccicci, pneumoc
occi, and the pseudo-bacillus of Loef
fler. The germs must indeed be dan
gerous if they are more formidable
than their names.
It is astonishing how so many so
Called liberty loving Americans are
paying fabolous sums for little spaces
from where they car ?ee King George
crown sd. Some such thing as this
no doubt caused Puck to remark,
"What fools these mortals be."
The Spartanburg Journal says it
is beiag suggested by patriotic per
sons that the shooting of Americans
across the Mexican border will event
ually lead to the organization of the
Daughters of the Innocent Bystand
ers of the /Mexican Revolution.
The Chicago News says that "if
the Democratic senators annoy Bail
ey, he might resign " The News need
not worry on that score. Bailey will
never leave the Senate until the Dem
ocrat in Texas kicks him out, which
they ought to do at the very fir.st
It turns out that the bloodthirsty
politicians who sought the Hon. Tos.
E. Watson's life were two small boys
stealthily preparing to dynamite a
neighboring fish pond, but the Hon. j
Thomas E. continues to foam at the
mouth and swear that he is on the
eve of being murdered because he
knows a few things. The Hon. Thos.
E. is either unbalanced or an un
What is needed in this country
more than anything else to check the
carmval of crime is a strict obser
vance of all laws. Not only the laws
that prohibits murder, but all laws
whether we like them or not. If uv
ery uian who holds an office of any
kind in the State would determine
to cbey all laws that bear on his
office and see that others do the
Sf.aie, there would soon bo a change
for the better.
School year in most sections of I
the laud is nearing its end and a j
mighty host of jubilant boys and girls I
will be set free to enjoy the long
summer days. To that large army of I
teachers who have toiled with such J
faithfulness and success vacation will
be equally welcome. Probably most
people do not sufficiently realize the
wonderful tact, patience and other
qualities a teacher normally displays,
nor the extent of the nervous strain
imposed by the responsibilities of his
or her position.
Take All or None.
In writing to some of his constit
uents, who wanted him to vote for
a duty on a certain article, because
it was made in hir. district, Con
gressman Johnson, who represents
the i Piedmont district, showed his
fallscy of attempting to be half pro
tection and half tariff for revenue,
! as_ .the. protectionists in his district
wanted him to be. As he says, you
must either be for one or the other.
The.ce is no middle ground. Cou
gre&sman Johnson/ says:
"We can't, destroy a vicious system
by becoming participants in it. If any
man in the south sells hiB birthright
for a mess of pottage, he is helpless.
A man who seeks protection on one
article made or grown in his locali
ty, must stand for protection for all.
He dare not fight any tariff Iniquity,
lest he lose his own graft. The
strong beneficiaries of protection be
lieve that they hai e the right to the
cream and that you ought to be sat
isfied wit? the skimmed milk, even
if you did milk it from your own
"The steel trust, the meat trust,
the rubber trust, the harvester'trust,
and all that horde that have grown
fat will give you a few crumbs if you
will stand for their graft. What lit
tle the south has gotten or will get
from protection can best be illustrat
ed by my boyho experience. When
they; cooked po- d cake (the real
article) I stood around with open
mouth to catch tho crumbs from the
bottom of the pan when the cake
was taken out. The southern man
who will help these great influences
to get the cake wlU be permitted to
scratch the crumbs from the bottom
of the pan."
That is good, sound, Democratic
doctrine, and our people should .re
member it. A congressman has no
right to ask for protection for any
thing made in his district, unless he
is willing to vote to protect things
made in other districts. That is
only fair. Therefore, when a con
gressman votes to protect an article
because it is made in his district, he
commits himself lo the whole thiev
ing tariff system,- and cannot con
sistently deny protection to the
things made in other congressional
Takes the i\ight View.
Congressman Joseph T. Johnson,
of Spartanburg, takes the right view
in reference to the duty of a man
holding the office he does. In answer
to some of his constituents who
wanted him to vote for a duty on
certain things that they manufac
ture, and who wrote to him to that
effect when they iearned that he was
going to vote to put them on the free
list, he said, "If you were to con
vince me that I am wrong I would
do the honest thing. The honest
thing would not be to vote for pro
tection, but to resign my seat in con
gress because r.iy views on funda
mental governmental questions are
as well known to my constituents as
is my face. I belijve that campaign
assurances and pledges, when fol
lowed by election, become binding
and solemn obligations, which must
be faithfully observed in letter and
in spirit. If I should become con
vinced that as a candidate I was
wrong on a fundamental proposition,
like the one now in hand, I would
be honest enotu;h with myself and
honest enough with my constituents
to surrender my commission."
That is a high position, but is one
that every congressman and senator
should occupy. They do not repre
sent themselves, but the people who
sent them to congress, and they
should vote as their constituents
want them to or resign.
Stolen All But the Roosfcv.
The Indianapolis New Era says
those who have memories encompas
sing the campaign of 1908 will re
member that during Air. Bryan's
memorable speaking tour he took
occasion to advocate the limiting of
any concern to fifty per cent, of the
country's production in any line. He
proposed this that monopoly in that
line might be prohibited. The prop
osition was received with ridicule by
our business guardians. Now, E. H.
Gary, of the Ur.ited Stages Steel Cor
poration, comes forward with the
same plan, but puts the percentage
at 60. His crmpany now produces
55 per cent, of the steel products of
the country. His proposition will be
received by those who scoffed at that
offered by 'Mr. Bryan as a good bus
iness regulation. If this purloining
of Democratic doctrine continues
during the next decade as it has dur
ing the last, the Democratic party
will soon have nothing left that it
can call its own but the rooster.
Judge Blair Knows.
Judge A. Z. Blair, of Portsmouth,
O.. who fined 1,000 men in West
Union county, Ohio, for selling their
votes and disfranchised the entire
number for five years, is visiting in
Denver. Speaking to a representa
tive of the United Press, Judge Blair
said: "I am in favor of the initia
tive, referendum and recall. I am
firmly convinced that the adoption
of these measures of popular gov
ernment throughout the country will
do more, perhaps, than any other one
thing to put an end to corruption in
politics, and particularly to the buy
ing and selling of votes." Judge
Blair knows what he is talking about.
He has come in contact with the real
article, and he feels the need of a
Illinois in Bad Shape.
Illinois, once the home of great
men and statesmen, has certainly de
generated, and is now a most degrad
ed commonwealth. Members of its
state legislature, in return for cash,
gave the votes which sent William
Lorimer to the United States senate.
Its legisla'.'ire has now defeated
the initiative and referendum. And
the Chicago Inter-Ocean, comment
ing upon the fact, says that the
twenty-nine members who enabled
jthis to be done "deserve the thanks
land honor of every patriotic Ameri
can citizen." May we not expect next
to see the Inter-Ocean accrediting
the murderous Italian Camorrists
We agree with the Oklahoman
that if there is a state in the Union
that needs the initiative, referendum
and recall it is Illinois. That it
needs the recall is shown by the
action of an Illinois court in liber
ating a trust magnate charged with
participation in the conspiracy to
debauch the legislature and purchase
a seat in- the United States senate.
Not since the Borglas ruled over
Rome has there been a more putrid'
political regime than that which
now exists in Illinois. The nation
