The president la preparing his mes sage on wool. It ought t prove a warm document. Bojn will be boys, but Just before Christmas the-y develop saintly qual ities not hitherto suspected. A Juror in the Hyde trial escaped yesterday, and has not yet been found. Appears to lie a case of Hyde atul seek The McNamuras went to prison convinced that they were the friends of labor. But labor declines to return the compliment. The number of farms in the state in tli" last ten years increased 3,699. Most of this Increase was In the upper pen insula, Houghton county alone gaining 671 farms. This Indicates a substan tial future. The time is not far dis tant when farming In the upper penin sula will vie with mining for first honors In the production of wealth. Secretary Stimson declares we are unprepared for war. that our army is too scatu-rud to be of much use in event of serious trouble with a for eign nation. It Is plain that, In ad vertising our military weakness to the world, the secretary of war does not MM anv war clouds In sight. But his !. la Of alarm on the ineffectiveness of our system of defense may have the desired effect of scaring Congress into doing something more for the army. Mb higan beet sugar saved the con sumers of Michigan and other states rising It over one cent a pound during the months of September. October and November this year. This shows the Import KM of the beet sugar Industry in Kl higan and its great growth in the past few years. It Is a factor to be reckoned with in the sugar market and will continue to strengthen that posi tion. Many copper country farmers will go In for sugar beet raising next year and in a few years this district will become one .,f the best In the state in the growing of that profitable crop. It Is a safe prediction to make as tat) conditions are Ideal. WHY NOT FARM LABORER? The commission appointed by Gov ernor r inborn to Investigate industrial accidents has made its report. It ad I m I "npensation for Injury for near ly all classes Of BBBloyO except those injured through their own negligence, excluding only farm laborers and household servants. The subject has be, n thoroughly investigated and it no louot, lly will result in a compensa tion act acceptable to both employer and employ. Just why farm labor ers wen- left out In the committee' recommendations, however. Is not clear unless the committee feared the farm ers In the legislature would vot against a compensation measure were farm laboren Included Nevertheless the faet remains that farm laborers especially those working about farm machinery, are liable to accident and they should be a corded the same ben efits as other workmen. A SPLENDID RECORD. Postmaster General Hitchcock has put the postofflee department on a paying basis. His annual report shows n surplus of t21H.llx.12 Instead of the usual deficit of a number of millions. the first time since 18H3 that a surplus has been shown. This splendid show ing become! more significant when It Is taken into consideration that Im portant extensions were made in every branch of the service. It demonstrate Mr Hitch M-k's executive ability and fitness. He has set a pare which will make his successors In that cabinet position hurry to keep up. He lias re organized the department and made It more useful to the people. Mr. Hitchcock has done his share In keeping the promises of the presl dent and has applied business methods with gratlfvlng results. Kconomv has been made a reality In federal matters under Mr. Taft. Whether the post master general or any other members of the cabinet will be given deserved credit for this achievement remains to I., aoen however. The necessity for etmW attention to details in govern mental service was a prominent theme In public discussion until it was ac tually brought about, but now that we reully have It very probably Its if sirubllltv will be loss accentuated critics, who, after the fashion or cyn ical humanity, will continue to tliul rault about matters not to tljelr lik ing and overlook entirely the thlng-i that are as they ought to be. All of sjMcibI Mr T;tft. with his usual aplomb, will no iloiitit regard as a happening ,.f the expected and will not allow It to Interfere with hi stur.ly determina tion to go right along doing his duty and letting the cnseouenceM take cute t themselves. THE NEW RUSSIAN TREATY. He.-oKtiltlon 'f Russia of the pass ports of American Jews we expect w I. be othVlalh .ilinolllned before Ne v Year's. The president OOOfldSOtlf eg jm is to have the disputed question M-ttletl by a new treaty in a satisfac tory w ji . His statement.

The new treaty is delaml upon high authority to m. . i fullv the re.Hirements of all creeds, and even to go beyond the AWMUMI of mass meetings In behalf of I'tvnt nltion held the country over. Hut ninl ters will cn.e to a pass very pecd!l MM va or the other, as a year's no tice of abrogation is required under the present tiesit of 1832, if the I'nlted States Is to abrogate. Action, thus. If .l,laetl over Jan. 1, must be de lay, .1 to lsH. But the indication- are now that Russia has been convinced of how serious the I'nlted States has btmMM on the passport question, and is prepared to recognize our view and write it into a diplomatic document THAT ROOSEVELT BOOM. Word MMMM from Washington that no longer are attempts made to dis guise tin fact that a concerted move ment is on foot In the Republican party to nominate 'ol. Roosevelt for the pres idency. Members of the national com mittee and other prominent purty lead ers are being sounded on the feasibility of the plan to "force'' the nomination 00 the ex-presldent. No attempt will be made it is said to bring linos, vi it s. ntiinent to a focus at this time, but his suoporters hope to achieve a vic tory in the convention itself. Col noooovolt has rOPQPtodhr declared he is not a candidate, and It Is not to be exi led he will change his attitude; nevertheless his personal views in the matter apparently will not be consid ered, the Roosevelt boomers taking it for granted that If he Is nominated he will have to accept us an Imperative call from his party. Roosevelt undoubtedly is sincere In his refusal to enter the race in 1912. It is true he has not endorsed the Taft administration, yet he has the sense to know Taft Is entitled to re-immlna-lln and that not to confer that honor on the president would be to afacredil the party. The Colonel may be thinking of being I candidate, of the receptive Sort. In 1916, but conditions at this time would! make his nomination in 1!12 a serious political blunder. The Republican party w have a hard enough fight on Its hands next year with Taft as the nominee, but with Roosevelt at the head Of the ticket the situation the Hepubllcans would find themselves in would be cen Worse. It would be a fine card for the Democrats; a prac tical admission by the Republicans that they had failed; and the people could not be blamed If they accepted the charge of Republican failure as true and turned to the Democrats. PERSIA LEFT TO HER FATE. The way of reform Is apparently ma difficult for nations as for Individu als. a Persia is finding nut to her sor row. With Russia clamoring at her doors and Kngland giving tacit con sent to whatever Is done the prospect I.- not by any means encouraging. The situation Is particularly Inter esting to Americans because an Am erican. William Morgan Shuster. is the storm center A few years ago an awakening began In Persia. The p. .. pie became intolerant of the old, graft ridden nionurchlal conditions and an era of reform Ivegan. The govern ment was put on a new and sounder ha Is and the nation began to make rapid strides toward the fuller c1tIH atlon In the modern sense. In the course of the change it became nce---sary to effect a re,rgani.at ion of the financial situation and the I'nlted States was appealed to for advice and recommended Mr Shuster, an Ameri can who ho hud considerable exper ience In matters of this kind, partic ularly in the Philippines. Mr. Shus ter began his work with energy. He put an nd t graft, reformed the ftftMMM Of the country and started well on the way toward financial solv ency. His RiCCaOi apparently still fur ther an. used the Persian national splr it. And then foreign nations steptnd in. Russia and Kngland are th two nations roost interested in Persian af fairs. In f.-u-t they have made a gentleman's agreement" hy which the nation Is divided Into two "spheres of Inlluerice." Hie-sla takes the northern provinces and Knglund the southern. Rusala has now de manded that Shuster be dismissed. Kntdand is ailent and Persia stands solidly bv the American. Meanwhile the UlflOi States has no direct Inter est in the matter, and cannot Inter vene Sinister was recommended by President Taft hut he is not a repre tntOtlVO of the American tvrn ment. It looks accordingly as If Persia will be bt to her wn fate.
