THURSDAY, MARCH 26, 1908 It la now assured hey on d a doubt that thla will bo a beautiful spring, It may be, aa claimed, that the tonsclousnes of duty performed glWs ui music at midnight but most people would rather Bleep at that hour. Thought for the day In loo larv guage of Lowell; The only faith that wears well and holds Its color In alt weather Is that which Is woven of conviction and set with the sharp mordant of experience. An urgent pica tor pure food In : the household was made by Harvey ' .W; Wiley, chief of the bureau of 1 chemistry of the department of ag riculture, In an address before the International congrws on the wel fare of the child, being held under the auspices of the National Mothers' congress. Dr. Wiley emphasised the Importance of the mothers of the country being eternally vigilant as to 1 be source of the food products that come Into their homes to see that they are fresh, uncontamlnated, pal' atablo and wholesome, adding that the best means of executing the pure food la Is in the household. Building trade journals agree In saying that building Is more active In all Eflct:iH of the country, partly because or the generally improved condltons, on account of the more favorable weather and also to some extent from the fact that construc tion U now proceeding upon a num ber of projects which have boen held up bocauso of the untoward condition of the money market. It is predicted that conditions will lm provo gradually from now, on and that probably before anyone has a full appreciation of the situation af fair will be upon a par with former times. Under the auspices of i' Nation al Mothers' congress, V was started eleven years ago, nn Inter national conference ou the child was licld in Washington last week, Mrs. Frederick Schoff presiding. The day before the mothers already thore had called on Presldont Roosevelt and had received a spirited address emphasizing his well-known views on race suicide. He told them that the mother who does her part toward the rearing and training of the boys and girls of the coming generation occu pies "a more honorable as well as a more ' Important position in the community than any man In It." place. The new laws are applicable to the church all over the world. Why rumors of war between tho I'nltod States and Japan persist, in the face of the woll-known condi tions, first the harmony between the two governments and next the fi nancial burden undor which the Japanese people are staggering. It Is hard to seo. From time to time wo are told all kinds of things ranging from what a serentcenth as sistant naval constructor told an in timate friend of a near relative of his to the solemn assertion that as soon as Admiral Evans' fleet reaches Magdalena Bay President Roosevelt will hurl forth a declaration o( war. Neither the constitution nor the as pect of the probabilities appears to hinder the circulation, by whispered word of mouth or by bold publica tion, of these "mlltary secrets" of the United States. Baron Takabira, the new Ambas sador from Japan, covers the ground when he says: "it is ImpoHslble, In my opinion, for any man of ordinary sanity to think of war 'between the United States and Japan In face of the sin cere friendship that actually exlsta between them. It Is a rrlmo against Civilization, a crime against human ity and a crime against the well-be Ing of all mankind. Such a war, If ever fought, would be the most in human event In the world's history Our people at least, do not think of the possibility of such on unfor tunate event." Common decency no loss than com mon sencs ought to forbid further irritation of the feelngs of a people whose official friendliness to the United States Is as genuine as amity between competing nations well can be. n their vernacular Is "O-liI-o," aud that lie answered rapturously, "You bet I am; and from Champaign coun ty, too!" Most people cun readily sympathize with a man who feels prldo in his birthplace and love for lis old boas. However, this senti ment did not prevent George Ade. the Indiana novelist, from bringing down tho house at a New York ban quet, when he said, when called up on for a toast to his native state: ''Here's to Indiana; We'll never go back on her, nor to her!" Si. Louis courts hold that an aclor doos not take his life In his bands when ho appears on the stage ln that city. The buyer of a ticket has no right cven to bins, to say nothing of organizing a rough house, The six weeks accorded the ground hog expire today and according to Iho calendar spring will begin next Saturday. It H not likely that na tivity on tho part of the spring le ver microbe cau bo much longer du-Isyed. Dorothy Dlx Kays "the busiest man has plenty of time to talk to his wifo every day." A bright contemporary concedes that this Is true, but says that lots of times the explanation will not go. Chicago will this year break ull re cords lu street Improvement. Con tracts will 'be made for 140 miles of street pavement, for which more than $3,000,000 will be expended. The gunners on the cruiser Albany recently mode a record of ten hits In ten shots, in lens than thirty seconds. The ronn behind the gun Is a large factor In the efficiency of the Amer ican navy.' Several thousand men of Philadel phia will in a few days be given em ployment on public works by the passage of the $ J 0,000,000 loan. Punctuating a good story with oaths Is said to be like dragging a beautiful bouquet through u length of dirty Btove pipe. "HOT Alft LINK" HAS FAU.F.D. In all Catholic churches official announcement of the new rules to govern marriage has been made, the rules to go into effect April It. Aft er that date all engagements must be in writing and private betrothal will have no matrimonial obligation. These prenuptlai vows some time ln dvance are encouraged as prevent ing hasty alliances. , N0 marriage will bo recognized by the church tin les the priest asks and receives the consent of the parties. Marriages of Catholic or fallan away Catho lics before a minister of civil mag istrate will "be no marriage at all." The marriage of a Catholic to a Protestant will be no marriage un less by a special dispensation, 'but Ibarriage or a non-baptized man and if will be valid as a life contract, fo all marriages there must be two fitnesses. One of the parties must ave at least a month's domicile in rish whore the ceremony take Investors in the stock of the Chi cago-New York Electric Air Line railroad, which tins been exploited all over the country as the biggest railroad project of the decade, will be interested to learn from New York sources that work on the railroad haa stopped and the Co-Operatlve Con structiou company, which has been doing the construction work, Is sell ag Its equipment and has discharged ita men. The road was to have beea built on an air line between New York and Chicago, turning aside for nothing. The officers asserted the time' be tween the two cities could be" re duced ten hours, which would give the road practically a monopoly of the passenger business between the wo cities. Glowng predictions of the Immense, profits which would go to the stockholders were made In the newspaper advertisements and the literature which was spread over the country. The road was to he constructed, according to the off! cers, on the co-operative plan with out appenl to Wall street, tho issue or bonds or preferred stock. The organization was to "be very deuio- crato and the money was all to be rased by the sale of common stock It is said almost $1,000,000 worth the paper has been sold. The price of the stock ran from $20 to 50, with a bonus of the face value of stock In transportation privileges, In a suit in Chicago last summer came out that President Miller was drawing $3,000 a year n cash and $20,000 a year In stock aa a sal ary, and that other off cers were paid in proportion. Burr Brothers and the Hancock company of New York, who put the stock on the market, are said to have received 23 per cent of It as commission. The New York Sun says of the company; "Tho latest news comes from Chi cago where the Co-Operatlve Con struction company, organized by the promoters to build the road, has been located. According to a dispatch from there, the company bus re-, moved 1U offices from La Porte, near where the first spike was driven last Juno wth speeches that did much to help the sale of stock. It also sold ninety mules that were parad ed before the stockholders on that auHplclous occasion and dismissed ninety laborers that had been at work off and on. A large part of the equipment has been sold to a construction company In Rt. Louis. With tho work abandoned the chances for the stockholders to en Joy the advertised prlvllego of using up the par value of tholr shares In transportation appear to be poor. Somewhere near La Porte there are a few miles of rails which can be traveled on In a handcar, but the right of the stockholders to even these is said to 'be dJeonted.v ' The story is told that a proud Buokoye tourist, npon landing In Ja pan, was greeted wrth the polite Japanese "How do you do?" which A Philadelphia court has decided that mock marriages are binding.

THE OROVILLE WATER POWER Late advices from San Francisco give interesting Information concern Ing progress of the work of develop Ing water power on the north fork of the Feather river nineteen miles above OrovlJIe, Cal. This is the plnnt which has engaged Engineer Coop er's attention during tho past two years. The developing and owning company is known as the Great Wost era Power company. It is a blit eastern syndicate composed of weal thy Now YorkerB headed by Edwin Ilawley, vice president of the West ern Pacific railway. The work has gone on steadily and quietly ln an obscure region, but the results are world's records in power schemes, At the present time there Is a force of 1,000 men at worii tout during a period of many months as many as 1,450 were employed. A tunnel three miles long and 18 by 20 feet .in the clear, through rock and all lined' now with concrete, has been completed. This 1 'greatest '' water power conduit in the world,, practi cally takes a whoe , river. and runs It undor a mountain that looms 3, 021 feet" high. . Within the past few days the tracks of the Western Pacific rail road have been completed to the slto of the plant In the heart of the Sierras, and, material for the com pletion of the lntter Is now being rushed forwdrd so that it can begin furnishing power by October t. The capacity of the plant will bo 120,000 horsepower. The biggest power plant flow In California Is not more than 25,000 horsepower. Within a pe riod of less, than two years tho Great Western power company will have ex pended In California a first Install ment, of $10,000,000. I XIA'CKY CANADIAN FA It MIC Its. Canada is doing a great deal to help its' farmers. The latest scheme is to advance $4,000,000 to those in the provinces of Alberto and Sas katchewan whose crops were a fail ure Inst year and who are therefore crippled in facing the needs of an other season. The announcement will , conio as a surprise to many, however, for the Idea has been sed ulously Inculcated that the Canadian northwest was a region of unfailing prosperity, and thousands have been induced to immigrate in the belief that it was a veritable promised land. n view of the outcome, soys the Troy (N.

We are at times surr prised that the vice and the weak ness of the entire people seems to be mirrored in the field of politics, to be concentrated in the channels worn by the offlceseeker, the place hunter. Here evasion, compromise with prin ciple, winking at evil nnd duplicity of the grossest sort take uubrldled license and work their selfish ends in the darkness sought and created by the political Juntas. The people are directly responsible. They alone can corroct this evil. They are the fountain from which ' the filth of politics flows. -' The politicians are of the people. So long as the moral people follow' a '.'hands off" policy, the evil will continue to go scott free. The people are responsible for the corruptnlg influence of politics. The so-railed moral peoplo are more re sponsible than the Immoral for cor ruption in the body politic. Here Is the weak link.

Mexican sentiment is all on the side of th;s constitution al provision, and It Is not for Amer icans to say that the feeling Is not praiseworthy, Even If the sands of lower California could not lie re deemed by Irrlftai ion, or bo mad useful in some other way, the Mex Iran resolve to keep them would bo entitled to respect.

With two defeats to com promise him, he is now the foremost nutn in the great historical party of this country, and admitted so by the critics and doubters as well as the believers. The man ha the Inherent quality of success. He has a grasp on the realities that no public man of this generation has given such evidence of. He knows the truth that his place in history will be de termined not by what the people do for him, but by what he does for the people. He has at his disposal the nomina tion of a great party for the first of fice of the world. To attain this po sition he had made no compromise or sacrifice of principle.. He has thought that defeat was a loss pen alty than the loss of the least part icle of self-rospect. In nn ago of great wealth and its great power, he has not had its backing. A greater power, though secondary because largely controlled by wealth, the met ropolitan press, has' been in the main against him. It is a monument to the inherent virtue of the ago that Bryan stands so pre-eminently the leader. Men and leaders that have been against him and have hunted high and low for leaders and issues to discredit or displace him have re luctantly had to. admit his suprem acy. Bryan was ahead of his time In his radicalism, but the times are moving faster aud have caught up with him. The devotion to truih and to the best interest of the peo ple and tlmo for study and reloctlon and travel have ripened and seasoned his lodgment, but have not dimin ished the couraee of the man or les sened his devotion to hi Ideals.

Tho man who made the above statement was not the only ono In he country then fueling that way. Ills very saying so made others feel so, and such expressed sentiment has brought forth fruit ono hundred fold and the man of the ability and courage of Bryan, has added im mensely to this crop of honesty.
