Some people are worried because
President Roosevelt is using a
government ship for a pleasure
yacht. If he never violates re
pnblicau principles to any greater
extent than that, he will not do
any harm to the government which
was founded by our "daddies".

ball in the white house.
Col. Bryan, in a speech at
Mouutain Lake Park, Maryland,
lest week, said that he prefers the
honor of being a private citizen,
and that he is "too democratic"
to covet the position of the presi
dency. It is most likely that he
will have his ambition gratified,
as ha has beeu twice defeated for
the presidency and, even if he were
nominated again, it does not seem
possible that he could be elected.
It is not even likely that he will
be nominated again, however.

ultimate object of gainiug colonial
possessions for the Germans is
openly talked of. The Czarvof Rus

England may wish to avoid war
for the present, but the German
empire is not believed to feel peace
