Apparently, by their curse in the matter of reciprocity, the Insurgent leaders are doing what they ran to forfeit public confidence in their anil ity to lead. John I. Rockefeller wants It under stewil that he does I)'t tare to he both ered by newspaper rtirters. It is easy to see that Mr. Rockefeller is not a member of the theatrical profession. Evidently John Hays Hammond was the right man to send as Amer ica's representative to tne coronation. He filled the part admirably t times receiving evi n more attention than Jack Johnson. Recently several persons have of fered themselves as substitutes for Mrs. Anteliria N'apol tano, the ana eltan S'. woman who Is to he handed for killing n r husband, the individ uals in juestotin being willing to hang in her !-tad if she is tet free. f a ch iUl Jill -il ill LLr 1 JL- 'f J ' u r SS. 1" ' ' ' jut be made. It Is Just an attempt to j,ain a little ri"i-n ty at the expense tif th- " T condtmneil ereature. as to the outlook for president Taft' re-nomination ami re-election in 191-- The cx-senator said: President Taft will have sometlilns more thaw -i sdid eh ligation from West Virginia next e,tr. He will have as a supplementary proposition a wave of enthusiasm among the solid buinebs men of the state, some of them IHmiim irats, and while we nave PreKi.hnt Taft not only a solid delegation in tlu convention last time, hut a big plural ity for presldetitl.il electors, we wll! i increase llwtt majority next )ear f-t the presidential jmrt of the Ue ket WJiat Is more Jhe lanipnUn In West Virginia for President Taft will not ist him a single postage stamp.' He nee-d not worry about West Virginia. The Post expresses the opinion thai the insurgent movement In the Repub lican patty, so far as it antagonizes the outlook for President Taft's re nominatlon and re-elee. tmn, seems to he confined to the insurgent leaders them selves. It might have made the state ment stronger, for there are Insurgent leaders who have indicated that they have no intention of earning; on war against the re-noniinatlon of president Taft. 1 Obstacles Which Retard; Progress of the Nation By CARDINAL C1BRQNS CHINESE POSTAL SYSTEM- 8 June 0 Cardinal Citrons Was the Recipient of State and Na tional Honors In Baltimore In Recognition of Tifty Years of Priesthood and Twenty-five a Cardinal and Archbishop. President Taft and Colonel Roosevelt Attended the Celebration THE NATION'S .WEALTH. The 33rd annual statistical abstract. Issued by the bureau of statistics of the department 4 commerce and la bor, tells In considerable detail the progress of the country In nearly every phase. It shows that the wealth pro duced on farms in 1910 amounted to practically f '..("ei.iuiii.Oiin, an increase of It.Ooo.otia.oiio since l'.'oo.

ICOXSIDKK the republic of the United States one of the most PJJKCIOUS 11KIK..00MS ever bestowed on mankind down tlufugcs and that it U the DUTY and should be tho dolHit of EVERY citizen to strengthen ami jh rpetuato our government by the observance of its laws and by the integrity of his iri vat e life. If our government is destined to be enduring it must do away with the following obstacles: , . muncrr WHICH STRIKES AT THE ROOT OF THE FAMILY j AND SOCIETY. THE IMPERFECT AND VICIOUS SYSTEM OF EDUCATION, WHICH UNDERMINES THE RELIGION OF OUR YOUTH. THE DESECRATION OF THE CHRISTIAN SABBATH, WHICH TENDS TO OBLITERATE IN OUR ADULT POPULATION THE SALU- TARY FEAR OF GOD AND THE HOMAGE THAT WE OWE HIM. THE GROSS AND SYSTEMATIC ELECTION FRAUDS. LASTLY. THE UNREASONABLE DELAY IN CARRYING INTO EF FECT THE SENTENCES OF OUR CRIMINAL COURTS AND THE NUMEROUS SUBTERFUGES BY WHICH CRIMINALS EVADE THE EXECUTION OF THE LAWS. To one of tho five obstacles or vices I havo just enumerated may, be traced our iusatiablo GUEED for gain, the "co-cxibtenco of colossal ...oMi ii-Wli alnrr nnrrrtv. thn rxtrnvarrane'ii -of tho rich, tho discon tent of the" poor our eager and impetuous' rushing 'thrcrUgii lifo and every other moral and Social delinquency. The I'hincse postal s.vstein has been described as 'wonderful" hy those who have Investigated it. 1UI llfteen years ago tlu re was no system at all. An empire 'f hundreds of millions of intelligent, active' and iiiri-ius people, in many respects well civilized and highly organized, in the closing ars of the nineteenth century, wfthoi't a postollice or a postal sxstcm. was surely an anomaly. That In so short a time, much shorter than the date suggests, u comprehensive, accurate, expeditious anil remarkably cheap ss lun of posts should he developed throughout the Immense domain is nothing less than marvelous.

Valedictory of the Founder of the Great Financial Family. one day in September, nearly a hun dred caiK ago, an old Jew lay dying in a gabled house that bore the elcvhe of a red shield in the- ghetto e.f Frank-fort-on-thc-Main. flroiiped aiound his bed were live stalwart sons. In a llrm voice this father in Israel admonished his children to be loyal to the faith of Moses; to remain united to the end; to Intermarry, and to obey their mother in all things. "Observe these rules." he elcolarcd. "and vou will be rich among the rich est, and the world will belong to ou." Such was the earthly valedictory of Maye r Aiuscbel Kothm hild.
