IN PART, BY EVERT MAATALA, LOCAL EDITOR OFTHE tLumi. i rniiiion (int rAivAkinii) i riraiMisri TEMPERANCE PICNIC, JULY 2. In Publication and Printing Office, Fifth Street, Calumet, Michigan. Entered at the Post Office at Calumet, Michigan, as Second Class Mall Matter. THURSDAY, JULY 7, 1910. Conferences galore at Oyster Ray these, days. Look like old times. Meanwhile President Taft U enjoying a dandy rest at Reverly. It begins to look a If the fight pic ture promoters, who expe ted t' make a million dollars on the Johnan- Jef fries films, counted their chickens be fore they were hatched. All over th country steps are being taken to pro hibit the xhowin? of the nictures. and! dally those predicted profits are fad ing away Into thin air. Tls we'd. In pome places It would make little dif ference whether the pilures were t-hown r not. but in others, especially where large numbers of negroes ar' congregated, racial clashes would be cure t fellow. Jut as they did after the fight at Reno. It is natural for the negroes to proclaim Johnson' victory as a racial triumph, and In a country f so complex a opulatlon ra ial en counters should be avoided. Kspeci.ll- ly it should be urs-ed that supremacy In a civilized state does not rest on physical fne. Russia has about completed the pre liminaries of absorbing I-'inland as an Integral part of th? empire. In this It violates the pledge of every czar who has been Finland's grand duke, as well us the constitution of the duchy. It Is wholly unjustifiable and will mark one of the most thameful acts of oppression in Russia's history of disgrace. The a-t paed by the duma and about to be approved by the council, will take away Finnish Independence. It will give to Rus sia complete control of the schools, the press, the courts, and the rights of assembly and nsso i;,t ion. There Will be little left of Pii.nish liberty. nnd no people on earth nr" more lib- rty hiving, more indcpeti'l' nt or have I fhown themselves more capable of selfj government. Hut to contend against the power of Russia Is hopeless. The one recourse p-ft them Is emigration, nnd the one country to which they most naturally would turn, is America. V. M. LYON, In the civilized democracy like ours Bus. Mgr. I there prevails free speech, free pre. and no objection to nuttings, A few years aijo these privileges weru de prived from the Inhabitants of Fin land !n such a measure that three per sons could not ston. even at a street corner, to talk even of their own ml nute affairs. Oendarmes were always on hand. If the Crar's name was men tloned. even by uccldent. its pronounc er was taken Into custody without even formal Investigation. Newspap ers were censored all over the coun try, nnd the censorship grew daily more stringent. We had u tyrant, the royal representative of the govern ment of the house of Romanhoffs Robrikoff. He had drawn a Muskow ite program to Russianize Finland. In talking of personal freedom we may admit this truth, which Is self evident: "That all men are created eiial; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, lib erty, and the pursuit of happiness." "Life" alone is a great subject, so Is liberty, and the pursuit of happiness contains almost everything. 1041 Municipal as well as sh ial life in this commonwealth of ours Is so much better lore, that we hardly could compare.it with that of Fin land even though there prevails suf frage for women and linuor prohi bition. This is a free country, for Us institutions have been founded on such a constitution which Is for the good of each and every citizen. Gov ernmental Independence is Just as pafe ns geographical Independence of the country. This Is riot only a repub lie. but this l the most perfect of lepublics on the globe. That's why there nr so many foreigners coming here annually. And here we can enjoy freedom in everv form provided bv the federal and municipal laws. Though it would be very interesting to talk about personal freedom, 1 (hoose to express my opinion of na tional freedom in a few words. What Is national freedom? Does it mean a great navy and army? Or does it typify high civilization or very In dependent resources of wealth and material prosperity? Neither! Of course, leading powers of the world at the present time are well provided w ith armaments, institutions of learn ing, and some prosperity in general. Rut these external signs do not guar antee In every way true happiness of nil the classes and even a majority of the nation. Is Russia a civilized state for like older states Russia tilso has all the symbols of war and peace, and Insti tutions of every degree for every purpose and about 20 nationalities un der her cruel subjection? In our opin ion it is semi-barbarous. Doesn't It j sound rather ironical to question Rus sia's civilization? It may be cynical, but let us see It by details. R Is well known that during the past few years Russia has changed, exiled, and mur dered in prison dungeons over 10, 000 of her literate and freedom loving people. A few weeks agi several hundred Jews were exiled, and now now she has done the most out raceous of all her deeds. Russia has The supremacy In th" mattor of railroad mileage enjoyed by the fnite.j f?tatc. Is In no wise Impaired i,y t'ie latest statistics which have been com plied regarding the railways of the world. The annual compilation by the Archiv fur KiNonbahnwesen (tier many) quoted by The Railway Age Gazette, although it carries the record flown only to the end of RioS, owing to the delay nee. ssarily involved in gathering statistics from all over the world, shows that there were 72.0(H) more miles of railway In North Am erica than In Europe, and If allow ..ii. r- iw mailt? jor me ranway mileage In Canada nnd Mexico and Central America it will he found that the Vnlted States had considerably more railway mileage than the whole of Europe, and about one-third of th world's total mileage. The grand to iai ior trie world Is 611.478 miles. which Is an increase of Cl.r,0. miles. r jj.' per cent., since 1904. and of 16,445 miles (2.8 per cent), oyer 1907. This Is fully up to the progress of recent years. State Senator Charles Smith of Hubbell, the oldest member In point of service in the Mate senate, Is the last of the tipper peninsula leglxlative members, who announced some time ngo that they would not he candidates for re-election, to get back Into the field. Senator Smith's rc.nslderatlon of his decision not to run follows closely on the announcement that Son ntor Morlarlty of Crystal Falls will "gain be a candidate. Represen tatives Dates. Edwards and Maxey l no are In the race. The fact that mat ters of great moment to the upper peninsula are likely to come un In the next session of the legislature fP. nlshes the reason why the old mem rer.s are again candidates, and It U of vital Importance that they should be returned. Recent developments, lillcally. demand their re-election, as their ability, experience n legislative affairs and acquaintance among the members of both house enable them to render valuable service to the ,1!.,. r.rbarously Insulted Justice. A week go the Duma passed a law depriving the Finnish diet of the mof Imnnrl. ant of its privileges, and the council of the empire has accepted the Du ma's act. While this question was under con sideration In the Duma. Finland pro. tested, as did the English parliament and the whole civilized world sympa thized with the cause of Finland. Rut the Russians were apparently blind with anger, vengeance, and Jealousy; absolutely Mind with the rosy and tempting idea to Russianize the flrand Dutchy of l inland and Its progress- tri'ts they represent. WJo believe their candidacies will be well received and that it will bo readily admitted the upper peninsula will n.ed the strongest possible delegation In the next legislature. lve people, ho they could not re sist the criminal temptation. They acted, they ottd, and when they had done the b!oly deed they went half Insane over the victory, and roared "Finis Finlandiae!" it was the end of the Finnish national freedom They knew that Finland was a land of free Institutions; they knew that within those institutions, Finns would gradually grow in the development of Individual life, of Internal life, of faculties, of sentiments and of high Ideas. They saw how Finnish lit trature, science, and the arts began to display more splendor relatively than their own, and they saw how Finland, the land of the thousand lakes, was transforming Into a beau tiful and economically Independent country where civilization was al ready on higher levels than in Rus sia; that's why they rose and contin uously repeated the ancient Roman Senator Cato's closing sentence: "Ce- terum eenseo Carthaginem esse d ntam." but the difference In this ise is. that Russian diplomats meant not Carthage, but Finland. The Romans destroyed Carthage, and so Russia is going to destroy Fin land and Finnish nationality. "They say that Finland was ambi tious; If it were so. It was a grievlous fault. Aim grievously natn I inland an swered it." Yes, Finns have been ambitious to be sound and alert, to be a light In the wilderness to her poor, wandering, be nighted kinsmen of the far north. the Samoyedcs, the Ostyarks, and others, pointing the way to clviiiza Hon, and not only to them, but to Russia itself, huge and strong, but dull inert and stupid longing blindly for i brighter day and the dropping of me guucKfis 01 nureaucracy and su perstition. National freedom Is a great Instru ment when freedom is perfect and founded on principles of sound Justice. This republic is a mighty good exam ple of national freedom. We know how everything began to develop In this country fight after the revolution, and this country has continued to b tho Mecca for about thirty millions of foreigners during Its 134 years of independent existence and still prom ises to be for centuries the crentest f republics and the leader of the common democracy. While asserting this view we are conscious of the fact that we. too, have our advocates of Immoral tac tics In politics and religion, but it Is no wonder, for It Is said, that even Heaven was once occupied by Satan. National freedom is a mighty agent of progress and general prosperity. Un cle Sam's enthusiastically patriotic family Is a good example. He has been manly to his neighbors and fath erly to his foster sons and daughters Cuba and the Philippines. Cuba has national freedom and the Philippines are going to get It soon. We see that Old Sam has been and Is generous and kind, but that's so because he is so thoroughly civilized. We Finns, belonging to a very small national family, are Just as unfortu nate ns the Polish and the Irish peo ple, for we are still suffering the op pression of the stronger and the might ier. Hut we have still one relief ren dering consolation in our continuous agony. It Is this: That heroes of the past centuries like the Polish Kos ciusko, the Italian liberator, Oaribal dl. Ireland's Robert Emmet. the i renenman, La Fayette, the truly no ble Hungarian, Immortal, liberty-lov ing Kossutn, and the sons and daugh ters or our American revolution of '76, are all of them with us; we feel relief and hope, for we know that their spirits protest with us against the cruel oppressors of our clay.

A very lively off-year In politics Is promised in every corner of the United States. Not only are congressional elections due In all of the states next fall, but thltty-two states will vote for governors and other state officers. The terms of twenty-nine Fulled States senators will expire In 1911. Here are the states In which state officers are to ' be elected this year: Alabama, Arkansas , Oeorgla. Ken tucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, California, Colorado. Connec ticut. Idaho, Illinois, Iowa. Kansas. Maine. Massachusetts, Michigan. Min nesota, Nebraska. Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio. Oklahoma. Ore gon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island. Ver mont, Wisconsin and Wyoming. In many of the northern states there will be a fight to determine whether President Taft nnd the policies to which he was committed by the na tional Republican platform of 1908 shall be supported or condemned by men elected to the national legislature ostensibly as Republicans. There will be local Issues In many states which will complicate the main Issue but In the country at large this will be the real matter to be determined hv votes of the electorate. It Is evident. Con gress having adjourned after enacting a rmtable number of statutes recom mended by the president, that he will boom larger In the Imaginations of the people nnd more readily command their suffrages than were he to have come from Congress with nothing to show but a record of failure.
