Is The Commoner Growing
Oi r old friend William Jennings Bry
an has brought much adverse criticism
on his bald head for bit apology for
taking six week of the lime he owes the
government to perform hi duties as
Secretary of State to go to the Chautau-
nui circuit and lecture at 2j0 or more
ner. which is that he is forced to do so
to enable him to live, his salary of $12,
000 a year being totally insufficient Did
any body ever? A maa with only a wife
now to support, born and reared when
tl 2.000 was regarded as a fortune, can't
live on that sum a year! Truly may his
followers, of which we have been a loy
al one these many years, enquire upon
what meat has this Caezar fed that ba
lias grown so great that 11,000 a month
looks like the proverbial thirty cents to
Mm? His indirect appeal for an increase
of salary, when many distinguished for
mer Slate Secretaries managed to get
along on a third of what he gets, is un
worthy of the great Commoner, and will
not increase his popularity with the
masses, who regard bis salary now ai a
very large one. We do not want to be uo
just to Mr. Bryan, but we fear bis love
of lucre outweighs all other considera
tions wuli him. He has been a great
money maker and is said to have accu
mulated a fortune exceeding half a mil
lion of dollars, yet he is the first to
squeal for more pay, after so many years
of preach inK of JetTersonian simplicity,
Verily Mr. Bryan seems to want to wear
a crown of gold for serving his country
Our advice is that if he thinks that be
is underpaid to throw up the job and let
some one else who hasn't such big ideas
of iiis value, try to rattle around in the
vacancy his frreat loss would create.
All Lexington is singing the praises
of Acting Governor El J. McDermott for
settling the street car strike so quickly
and so satisfactorily. A Republican
governor would have sent the militia to
bring order out of chaos. Gov. McDer
mott went in person. lie told the street
car company that it bad to accept bis
findings and the strikers that ha would

next day if they didn'L

take back its old employes, give them
the preference over union men when
their services merit it and working con
ditions are to be improved. Everybody
was sans tied, the cars started again on

normal appearanco. Now let the rioters
get their dues and such disgraceful
scenes may not be again enacted.
t-EKisu that the tariff bill will pass
without their aid or consent, the repub
lican Senators are doing every thing
they can to delay the bappy day wbea
the masses, and not the classes, will
have their innings. Senator Galleger,
of New Hampshire, has introduced a
resolution to postpone further consider
ation of the bill till the regular session
of 1914, so that the people can express
themselves on it. Such a proposition is
Tommyrotical. The people said in
thunder tones at the last election that
protective tariff must go and privilege
and monopoly shall no longer have
Tbb law of supply and demand doe
not seem to apply to men and women.
England is blessed or otherwise, ac
cording to the point of view with over
a million excess women, while in the
American Northwest there are men who
are compelled to cook their own meals
and darn their own socks. Tberaeyery
marriageable woman has offers galore and
usually speedily weds. Taking the world
as a whole, it is doubtful if there is a
vary considerable disparity between the
male and female population, but there
are many spots on the earth's surface
where women predominate in numbers
and others where men are far more nu
merous. The Northwestern farmers who
want but can't get wives probably are
treated so badly by fate because of the
fact that Northwestern farm life doesn'
appeal very strongly to women. If the
farmer could assure some pretty young
woman that bard work would not quick
ly fade the roses of her cheeks, coarsen
her bands and narrow ber life be might
have less difficulty in finding a mate.

The overwhelming sentiment for

Sidney Winkler Thrusts His
Knife Into The Heart Of
About 5 o'clock on last Saturday af
ternoon, near McSwain's store, in the
East End, Sidner Winkler and Wade
Reeves engaged in a fight in which the
latter lost his life, Winkler stabbing him
through the heart. Death was almost
instantaneous. Winkler used his pock
et knife and t is claimed that Reeves
had him down beating him when he did
so. There was another cut on Reeves'
breast, but it was only superficial. The
two men had been down town and bad
walked out to the East End together.
Both were under the influence of liquor
and this together with a bad feeling that
bad heretofore existed is supposed to
have caused the trouble. A number of
years ago the men were in jail and they
engaged in a fisticuff while incarcerat
ed. Winkler, who is the pest-house
keeper, is about 55 years of age and the
dead man about 33- Both were married,
the latter leaving, besides his wife, two
children. He had been married only a
short time to the wife who survives him.
His burial occurred Sunday afternoon.
After the trouble Winkler started to
the business part of town to give him
self up, and meeting Chief of Police All
man, be told him what had occurred.
He was placed in jail and brought out
Monday morning tor trial, but on ac
count of absent witnesses the trial' was
postponed "until tomorrow morning.
From what we are able to gather,
Winkler was justifiable in the act, but
of this we will have more to say after
the trial. He is considered a harmless,
good natured man, and it is believed
that his provocation was great, or he
would never have committed the horri?
ble deed. Reeves was a painter by trade
and was a good worker sq long as he let
John Barleycorn alone.
