AND CHiCAGO u ,T:ira CHE9 IN ALUS WK PRINCIPAC CITZU." .:' i JOHN McNAMARA'S MOTIVE JSJJ tnitifresiaeneiKvan, .. ot the ;JrHl;: Workers' Union, explains the actions -eda. system o dynamite explosions 2WMt5HHIJ!ilfOTetflthenountry including that which blew up the Los Angeles Times j 'j,iaJd:kUled twenty-one men .as due to a "zeal in his work for the organiza tion which caused him to become in sane." Let us hope that that is the frue answer to the question why a man should become so brutalized as to bring about the death of his fel low men in order to be revenged upon the capitalist enemy. Undoubtedly labor has suffered wrongs at the hands of such men as -Otis and Parry and 'Post and Kirby. They are the real causes of violence, of the growth of socialism, of dyna miting and murder. Organization on the part of laboring men has been a necessity. They were forced to it and its benficent effect is seen in -.the increased earniug and spending fcapacityof American woniingmen, in better homes, in better dres.-cd school-children and all the things that go to make up the sum of human happiness. jBut labor should learn this lesson from the McNamara case: It cannot have public sentiment with it in violence and murder, oven when that violence is conceived in the brain of a wrong-maddened sufferer from the oppression of hard-hearted employers. Never was there a strike in this country but had public senti ment with it when it had any basis' whatever as a cause, unless violence marred its conduct, and in every such case that has come under our notice public sentiment went to the other side. An instance of this con dition was seen in the Los Angeles election. A -week befire the MoNa mara confession it appeared certain that Harriman, the Socialist, would be elected Mayor. He was over whelmingly defeated by a represen tative of the very forces that have crushed union labor because of that confession and the fact that he had been one of the McXamara counsel. OHIO'S CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION. Representatives oC each of the eichtv-eight counties of our neighbor north of the river are in session at Columbus, with a view to getting rid of the constitution adopted in 1851 and proposing one to the people more in line with the development of a great and progressive .state. The convention has started well. It is net pleasing the Cincinnati Enquirer, owned by John It. ' McLean, which does not like the initiative and refer endum and recall, nor is the Commer cial Tribune, really owned by Mc Lean but with E. O. Eshelby as figurehead, or the Times-Star, of which Charles P. Tuft is the proprie tor, delighted with the outliook. The progressives are in control, however, and lacy prcpc;o to construct a constitution which the people want and will approve. When one considers the actions of some of the courts of Ohio, particu larly the decisions which prevented the prosecution of Boss Geo. B'. Cox, of Cincinnati, the recall of judges does not appear to be such a mon strous proposition, though the peo ple of that state have been systemat ically recalling such judges at every opportunity given them in the elec tions. Two of them went to the scrap-heap in the election of 1910, along with thc'Republican state machine. MOTHER. Such a play as "Mother" which appeared at Lexington, on Saturday cannot fail to have an uplifting in lhience upon the stage and its pat rons. Infinite love and pathos per vade the story, winch leaves upon the heart and mind a sense of peace and well-being. Ah, a wonderful thing is niothei ltivc. So far-reaching are its effects and so boundless its -extent that it 'delves deep down intb tjjo dives of isih and shame, where liter boy sits amid the clinking of gtasjjes and the shouts of reckless cojnppions; and isoars.forth to tJic spleiidiil theatre in a far-off city, where the 'girl (who to the mother is but a babe?grown tall- Ter) sfands 'gorgeously .ntth-ed, receiv- ing the plaudits oi a tnrong oi coarse admirers. " When' 'f hcJb'oy, grown wearied;jiK bodv and mind,- wrccked",ilisilealth and 'fortune, forgoifoh by old friend. and repiitscd by new, stands shiver ing a hopeless, his mind reverts to home and mother. There he will find a welcome, devoid of reproach; there a peace and comfort for his declining years. And when the girl, her glo rious voice weakened by the passing years and her splendid physique emaciated by exposure and a reck less living, stands face to face with failure and a hopeless future, sud denly a gleam of hope and a promise of content penetrates the veil of dc snnir which envelons her, .and She streches out her aims in the abandon of regret toward that mother-love, and it does not fail. In sickness and in health, in failure and prosperity, in life and in death, the mother-love is the anchor to which all humanity clings. And the love the mother gives to the wayward son and erring daugh ter is as tender and as true as that she showered on the little one, who stretched out its tiny form and died, e'er he could bring to her who bore him, a further heartache. Many a mother carries deep "down in her being the sacred memory of a timy fevered brow, grown strange cold; of tender, waxen baby hands; of plaintive calls upon her name all si lent now; and yet, in spite of the pain and longing, in spite of the emptiness of her life, she turns fo the world a face calm and placid, with a faith unsullied and a soul un marrcd, ready and willing always to speak a kindly word and lay a gentle hand upon the tangled curls of some body's baby, made sacred by the memory of her own. Because of one dear baby head' With golden hair It seems to her all little heads A halo wear. Because of one sweet dream Of long ago She consecrates her life She loved Irim so. In a forgotten corner in a seclud ed atfie stands a treasure chc.t. Its priceless contents could not be pur chased bv the wealth o 31 hundred kingdoms. And yet should a thiet22! break In in the silence of the night to steal the treasure, he would find only a tiny boot with toes kicked out, a silken tress of gold or a broken doll, maybe, or rusted soldier. It must have been a mother who wrote: I wonder, oh, I wonder Where the baby faces go That come and smile, and stay awhile, And pass like flakes of snow The dear, wee baby faces The world has never known But mothers hide, so tender-eyed, Deep in their hearts alone. I love to think that somewhere, In that country we call Heaven That land so fair, of anywhere, Shall unto them be given; A land of little faces very little very fair; And every one shall know her own, And cleave unto it there.

On the 10th inst., an article ap peared in the Winchester News from which the following extract is taken: "The W. O. W. enjoys the title of the Giant of the 20th Cen tury." In justice to the Modern Wood men of America, this statement should not be permitted to go un challenged; but it will be a sufficient answer to give the official records of the standing of these two organiza tions, i e, The Woodmen of the World and the Modern Woodmen of America, which is as follows: The official report January 1, 1911 shows: Total membership of M. W. A. 1, lfiG,207. Total membership of W. O. W. 508,466. Amount of insurance in force, M. W. A., $1,786,098,000. Amount of insurance in force, W. O. W., $758,304,000. Thus it will be seen that the Mod em Woodmen of America not only had,. 011 -the above date, over 600, 000 more members than the Wood men of the World, but it. had $1,035, 783,900 more insurance in force. What the record of January 1, 1912, wheal giveu out, will show U not known, but it is safe to say that it will sihow that no similar order has kept pace with the M. W. of A., in its marvelous onward march. . J. W. WOMACK, District Deputy, M. W. of A. . 5 FURS! FURS!! FURS!!! Will pay you the Highest Cash Prices If or your Furs. J. W. HISEL Bridge Junk Shop.

The old man turned and looked at Snead and then asked him, bystanders declare: "Well, what are you going to ' do about it?"
