A SIGNAL FAILURE.
In summing up the activities en
gaged in the campaign and not'ng re
sults, the signal failure of President
Gompers is the most notable. Gom
pers is at the head of one of the
great labor unions In the United
States and he announced early in the
year that the time was ripe for organ
ized labor to enter politics and he
planned a campaign and centered his
energies on the defeat of certain con
gressmen whom he said had shown
by their acts in congress that they
were the enemies of labor.
The first of these campaigns was
waged against Congressman Little
field of Maine. Gompers and other
labor leaders took the stump in Maine
in Littlefield's district and though
they *>d not defeat him they appeared
Satisfied with the result and an
nounced that they would continue the
fight in other districts. Speaker Can
non was marked for slaughter, but he
thought so little of the attack that he
refused to make a personal canvass
of his home district, but went into the
general campaign at the direction of
the national committee. The result
Justifies his judgment for he was re
elected with an increased plurality.
other, congressmen were on
the Gompers' black list, among them
French of Idaho and Jones of Wash
ington, but in checking over the re
sults there are no indications that any
of these suffered from the attack made
by uition leaders under the direction
ofPrssldent Gompers. It would ap
pear that Mr. Gompers has misjudged
the sentiment in labor circles and that
present conditions in the labor world
do not justify a vote to change Indus
trial conditions. Labor Is too well
employed and wages too satisfactory
for the fostering of a labor revolution.
The facts In the Castellane divorce
suit would make mighty interesting
reading and yellow journalism would
revel In the expose. Count Bonl's
escapades, his brutalities, extrava
gances and Intrigues would In America
fill columns of the daily press, but In
Franoe they do things differently. The
French law makes the publications of
divorce proceedings a criminal offense.
They even suppress the names of the
co-respondents in the records, and
even those who attend the trial are
denied the sweetmeats of sensation.
America might well copy from France
In this particular and make a great
gain for decency and propriety.

♦ Joaquin Miller. «
Joaquin Miller, "The Poet of the
Sierras," was born at Wabash, Ind.,
November 10, 1841, and went to Ore
gon with his parents nine years later.
He became interested in mining in
California, but in 1860 he returned to
Oregon, studied law and later became
an editor. In 1870 he went to London,
where he published his first book of
poems. Afterwards! he returned to
Washington, where he was a news
paper man for several years. Again,
however, the call of the "Great West"
took him to Oakland in 1887, where
he has made his home since. The past
summer, however, he spent in the east
