The anti-Elkins movement in West Virginia took definite form at the meet ing at White Sulphur Springs, last Thursday. That state is one of the worst boss-ridden in the Union, both as regards political and business condi tions. "It is my opinion that this fight Which Mayor Weaver is making for clean government will clarify political conditions throughout the State. It will mean the end of the feeling against Philadelphia that has been engendered by gang methods." Congressman Ernest F. Acheson made this declaration in Philadelphia shortly before leaving the city for his home in • Washington county. A Philadelphia assessor has included Justice John P. Elkin of Indiana county in the list of voters for his district, and after exposure justifies it by saying that he called at the Hotel Walton for a list of voters resident there, and was so hurried that he put down all the names that the clerk "rattled off" to him. The assessor who puts down all the names rattled off to him is typical In the localities where there is a use for padded registration. —Ex. City people often make sport of farm ers, and some of the more brainless and Bupercillious ones regard them aa in ferior beings. But the fact remains that when corrnptionists and political pirates are rnling the cities and their inhabitants are weakly holding up their hands while their pockets are beinK rifled and their morals corrupted, the agriculturist maintains his independ ence and his integrity. Save in a few unfortunate instances he is not to be bribed or intimidated. He has no mentor but his own conscience, and the ntate and nation may rely "pon him to uphold its honor and its credit. The sturdy farmers constitute the brake and the balance wheel which prevents the engine of republican government from tearing itself to pieces from its ojFn impetus. They are the ballast of ; - "pho aMp or state which keeps it from ? being overturned by the waves of r avarice and selfishness which dash * against it—Ex. Words of Root, Impulse of Roosevelt. These words, at once so blistering and so inspiring, are written by Hie premier Of the Republican National administra _^r-t»fl. 1 Vile.? Lu.uathe the spirit, as they reflect the impulse, of Theodore Roose velt. They fix the brand of condemna tion on the conspirators, and tear off the mask of Republicanism with which they seek to disguise their 1 'corrupt and criminal combination." With such a declaration from the highest Republi can authority the anti-graft Republi cans will take fresh zeal and courage in their campaign against the grafters and all the pro-grafters. They are fighting to redeem the party from the stigma which false pretenders would fasten on it They knew that all honest Repub licans must be with them, and now they have the commission and the god speed of the National Republican lead ership.—Philadelphia Press. "Iz" DURHAM is to retire from poli tics He will have lots of company by this time next year. NEW ORLEANS has had 34 deaths from and 154 cases of yellow-fever dur ing the past two-weeks. ALL the big life insurance companies of New York are to be investigated by the state legislature of that state, now in extra session. CABBIE NATION has started a paper. It is known as "The Hatchet" and will be published at Guthrie, O. T. Mrs. Nation is editor in chief. The business manager rejoices in the name of Chest nut. It is a monthly, devoted to tem perance reform and will cut deep. # ONE of the boilers of the U. S. S. Bennington, lying in the harbor of San Diego, CaL. last Friday, exploded, kill ing one ofiicer and about sixty men, and injuring many more. The ship was beached to save her from sinking. Of the sixty who wese killed by the ex plosion forty-seven were buried in one long grave on Loma Hill, on Sunday. REPRESENTATIVES of the Japanese government have,just bought SIIO,OOO worth of horses at a stock farm at East Aurora, N. Y. There are 34 horses in the deal, and all will be shipped to Japan for breeding. Seventeen of them , are thoroughbred racers and some are ■take winners. The average price is about $3,000 for each horse. SENATOR PLATT, who has just cele brated his 72d birthday says that his life "has not been worth while" and "if he had it to do over again would re model his political life along different lines." This sounds remarkable, and yet how many there are in other voca tions who feel the same way. The man who is satisfied with himself and the way he has lived is an exception. None of us are perfect, and wq could all uss how a decided improvement if we had it to do over again. JAMES M, BECK, in his address to the New York State bankers the other day, on "Moneyphobia," refuted the idea that we are a money loving people. "No people," said he, "of any time or clime ever cared less for money when earned than we." He asserted that the entire edifice of the commercial world rests upon fair dealing. The true capital of the banker is confidence. There are un questionably broken contracts, but their number is infinitesimal in comparison with the many that are kept with scru pulous fidelity. We hear of many de falcations and breaches of trust, but we must remember that the means of pub licity are a thousandfold fgreater than F > ever before and that the opportunities for such recreancy are a thousandfold J greater than in any other age. There _ are more faithless bank clerks because there are more bank clerks, but how few are the faithless in comparison with tbe fattMul: ** ** 1 The Bridge Case. The Beaver county bridge case, the one regarding damages for taking the private bridge over the Ohio river at Rochester, was given to the jury of eleven, last Friday afternoon, and the jury retired to their room. Here one of the most remarkable battles ever fought in this county's court house began, and continued all night—none of the jurymen getting any sleep, excepting a few minutes towards morning. The jury promptly divided into two factions -one favoring giving the Bridge Co. all, or nearly all, it ask ed. $350,000; and the other favoring giv ing the Company about $"200,000, for which sum, or less, the bridge could be replaced, today. They compromised next day 0n5287,290.53. Rumors of "graft" or outside work regarding the verdict promptly spread over the town, all seemingly founded on the allegation of one juror that he was offered SSOO to keep the verdict over or above the $300,000 mark; and the matter will, probably, be investigated in the Criminal Court. Attorney D. A. Nelson of Beaver, and one of the Counsel for that county, said upon his return to that town, that an effort had been enearthed to tamper with the jury. "This case was carried over to Butler county on change of venue because everybody in Beaver county was interested. The bridge was condemned nearly a year ago in an ef fort to have it free and the damages awarded were $304,000. On Satnrday damages of $287,290 were awarded, and irom this an appeal will be taken. The bridge is between Rochester and Monaca. Two weeks ago a Rochester man was observed in Butler talking to a juryman, Mr. Nel son said, and this man was shadowed. A detective was employed by Mr. Nel son to go to the juror to whom the Rochester man was seen talking. The juror at first denied having been ap proached, but tb r detective put up such a strong bluff that he won out. "Well, if you know so much about it," responded the juror, "mavbe you can tell what he offered." "Five hundred dollars," was the terse reply, made on a bluff, however "You hit it right," admitted the juror, who, thinking his action was ful ly known, told everything, but asked the detective to wait until after the trial ended. Saturday the suspected juror came to Nelson's man and told him everything, but declaring that he had kept himself clear of the whole at tempt to bride The juror said: "Several other men on the jury were approached. When Mr. Nelson in his argument Saturday told the jury that he knew of an attempt to influence the jury several men on it were so very much perturbed that they discussed the matter in the jury room and swore each other to secrecy." While the damages were cut down the commissioners of Beaver county still think they are excessive. Tampering with a jury ia no joke. If any members of that jury went home with Beaver county money in their pockets they should be in the penitenti ary, with the men who gave it to them. OKLAHOMA and Indian Territory are taking earnest measures to push their claim for statehood before the next Congress. They base their application on the ground of right, in that they have attained the stage of population and development that qualifies them to be States. Few people will dispute the truthfulness of that claim. Yet there are strong indications that the well-founded desire expressed by the convention at Oklahoma City last week will be hampered by the same po litical maneuvers as last winter. It is indisputable that the application of a territory for admission as a State should be decided on the merits of that single Case. Tf flHulinmii shows tko j>snna- I nent progress that qualifies it to be a State it shonld be admitted. If Arizo na or New Mexico lacks the qualifica tion it should not.—Ex Why it Was Passed. Viewed in the light of recent develop ments, it is easy to understand why the famous Grady-Salus libel law was pass ed. The men who were behind it, steep ed in corruption to their very lips and knowing that their acts could not for a moment stand the light of publicity, sought to stifle inquiry and exposure. The newspapers of the State must be muzzled, if possible, and these short sighted leaders, ostrich-like, believed that the threat of the • law's terrors wonld force the press into silence and submission. As long as no one dared call their crimes into question they thought they were safe from molesta tion in a career of public wrongdoing. Therefore they took advantage of the thin skin and vanity of the man who had been foisted into the Governorship, and forced the passage of this libel law. The protests of all decent citizens who believe in a free press, subject only to reasonable and rational limitations, were brutally ignored. The measure was jammed through the Legislature, and, once passed, its framers and fathers fancied themselves secure and free to work their nefarious will in public af fairs. Never were men worse deceived. The press of the State paid no heed to them or their law, but went on in its legitimate work of exposing graft and crookedness wherever manifested. In Philadelphia, where political iniquity found its most daring field, the press, with possibly an ignoble exception, never tor a moment slackened its efforts for honest government and the exposure of the wrongdoers. It was uphill work and a long fight, but the victory came at last Proof was heaped upon proof until public sentiment was awakened and the public conscience was touched to the quick. The crimes of the gang were laid bare to the State .and the country, the result being such an up heaval as the United States has not witnessed in a generation. Todav the fang is defeated, disgraced, overthrown. ittsburg Times. A Revival of Public Morals. It may be a delusion, but there are strong indications of a moral and polit ical revival in this country The time appears to be close at hand when polit ical machines for the aggrandisement of their managers, and which have no interest in public affairs beyond pro moting the schemes of a few individ uals, will be looked upon as political pirates. Grafters of all kinds will be regarded as criminals, as they are, and not as 'shrewd men who know how to make things come their way." A higher standard of business, professional and political morality is already being de manded. Hypocracy and pretense are easily diagnosed, and nothing that is not genuine will pass. A good deal of this revival of con science may be attributed to President Roosevelt. The example set by the head of a nation has a great influence on the people. The histories of all countries prove this. In Rome the bad emperors inevitably corrupted the morals of the people and the good ones improved them. The importance of having men of ex alted character and incorruptible in ' tegrity at the head of affairs cannot be overestimated, and the keenest discern ment on the part of the people is nec eesary to distinguish the genuine from the spurious. Demagogues and pre tenders to pure and patriotic motives are constantly seeking to impose them selves on the people, and only high in telligence, unceasing vigilance and nn- J selfish patriotism on the part of the voters can prevent their ascendancy to place and power. A process of renovation and regenera tion seems now to be in progress. The example set by the present administra tion in tolerating nothing that is in the least degree tain*"<l with rottenness in ! public affairs, has spread to municipal | governments and to private business. Cities are being cleansed of grafters and insurance companies are being prob jed to the bottom. That the good work will continue is the prayer of every patriotic citizen,—Spirit. Peace ami War Notes. After consulting with her ministers in Europe and America the Chinese Government has notified all the Powers that she will not recognize any peace arrangement regarding Manchuria, over which she claims absolute sovereignty. Chinese imbecility brought on the war between Japan and Russia, and now that the Big Bear has been whipped, she is getting brave. The alleged peace plenipotentiaries are to meet at Portsmouth Navy Yard next month, but we doubt if anything but a disagreement results from their meet ing. M. Witte. one of the Russian plen's, was in Paris, last week, and out lined the method of procedure as fol lows: Japan is to first state her terms (very likely) to which M. Witte, after com municating privately with the Czar by cable, and after conferring with Baron de Rosen, his colleague, and with M. Pokotiloff, his financial adviser, who was formerly director of the Russo- Chinese Bank, and with the Russian representative at Peking, will make the Russian counter proposition, This re ply will contain among other important concessions a proposal to hand over Manchuria, lock, stock and barrel, to China, charging China a sum consider ably exceeding .$1,000,000,000 for rail roads and other betterments construct ed during the Russian occupation. In other words, Russia hopes to secure from China a large portion of the war indemnity that she will eventually be compelled to pay over to Japan. Meanwhile, during the sittings of the Portsmouth conference, there will be innumerable telegrams, emanating from the headquarters of General Linevitch and from St. Petersburg, representing the Russian army in Man churia as in splendid fighting condition and confident cf victory; for General Linevitch and his 400,000 men constitute the sole trump card remaining at the disposal of Russian diplomacy. Czar Nicholas asked Emperor Wil liam to meet him, and they went in their yachts to a point in the gulf of Finland, and talked the matter over all night. No statement has been made concerning the purport of the conversa tion and none is likely to be made. Whatever the czar may have desired to consult hi? imperial neighbor about, it is not probable he desires to tell. St. Petersburg reports say. however, his people have not been pleased at the meeting of the monarchs and are ready to resent any interference in their af fairs by the king of Prussia. Baron Jutaro Komnra, Minister of Foreign Affairs and one of the peace plenipotentiaries of Japan, and party passed through Pittsburg Monday night on the New York flyer, the Pennsylvania's 18-hour train. " The party was met in New York by Kogoro Takahira, the Japanese minister and taken to Oyster Bay to see Presi dent Roosevelt. From there the party will go to Portsmouth, N. H., where the peace conference will be held. Baron Komura stopped long enough in Chicago to say some things the American people have been waiting to hear since the Japanese plenipotentiaries landed, and not the least important of his utterances relates to the immigra tion of his countrymen to America. The Baron maintains that if a Jap anese protectorate is established over Korea it will form an outlet for the surplus population of the Empire, and there will De little if any immigration to America. This is important if it proves to be true. It is possible that it is backed bj a careful study of the sit uation and a thorough knowledge of the facts. If the Japanese desire to settle on the mainland near their old homes they will have ample opportunity to expand their energies in building up the Hermit Kingdom without the handicap that might attend their appearance iu America in large numbers. They would also be available in assisting the Japanese Government to hold the ter ritory which, the utterance of the Baron appears to indicate, it is determined not to relinquish. LONDON is to have $120,000,000 worth of additional railways, subway and sur face, which indicates that that town is growing. THE first canvass of Philadelphia dis closed 81,817 illegal names on the Reg istry lists, and another canvass has been ordered. The Steel Road. The first steel rail track for wagons to be laid in Pennsylvania was completed, Tuesday, on the Butler plank road be tween Etna and Undercliff. The track extends one mile, 000 feet of which is double-tracked. It was laid for the Steel Highway Track Construction Co., which sublet the work to the Hill Con struction Co., of Pittsburg. The work was started six weeks ago. For several weeks part of the track has been in use and his given satisfac tion. The track is standard gauge, the surface of the road sloping to the rails. Each rail has a six-inch tread with a quarter-inch flange on its inner s'de. The rails are T-shaped, eight inches high, and rest on a plate. They are connected at intervals of eight feet by an iron bar called a bridle, which screws into a chain attached to the rail plate. No wooden ties are used. The track rests upon a solid foundation of stone and limestone. The space between the rails is filled with crushed lime stone, packed tight by a steam roller. The JDamm Family. The troubles of the whole Damm family, largely ascribed to the Damm dog, were aired in the Harlem police, court in New York, Monday. Her man Damm was charged with cruelty to Mrs. Damm, who had thre6 vigor ous Damm children clinging to her skirts. Policeman Kelly, who made the arrest, could not suppress a broad grin—which was quickly imparted to the stern countenance of the judge. "Well." obseryed the magistrate to his clerk, "I have heard of the whole Damm family in fiction and I under stand the family has l>een dramatized, but I never dreamed that the whole Damm family was a reality, and I am sorry to learn that its members are BO pugnacious. As the Damm family have a very slight speaking acquaintance with the English language, it was with difficul ty that the court learned that the row resulted from the husband's bringing home a yellow dog. and then there were blows exchanged. Theie was a commotion in the rear of the court room, followed by loud yells "That's the Damm dog,"" said Officer Kelly. "He's followed the whole Damm family to court." "Put the Damm dost out'" ordered the magistrate. The Damm dog was ejected and the defendant was discharg ed. Notice in Divorce. Eva P. Morrow, "1 In the Court of Coru- I rnon Pleas of Batlcr (Jo..
