Marks, County Superintendent This Reform Will Last Governor Folk believes that the present civic r;form in this country is to be permanent. In his Winona address he said: "Before today there have been in our country great moral movements, but they have been local and the vampire of graft was only temporar ily driven away. But today reform bids fair to be universal, and the question asked on every side is "Will it last?" "Reforms sometimes die. but rev olutions never go backward, ?al this reform is a revolution in the on sciences of men. It cannot die, be cause this generation 'means honor, virtue, worship of God and i p.itrif t -ism that loves country and felloJ man. Christ's life had more iiitluence on civlization than the power ol a hundred kings. This example is whit we need to day not a paricti?m of lips, but of deeds, and one that is felt in the heart. The patriotism of today must pay attention to civic af fairs and the getting of good men in office, and fighting evil." Aged Woman Dead.

The expression, "Government by the People" is being almost as much overworked as is the phase public opinoin." Does government by the people mean the government that U based on the complaints of the un fortunate or the rantings of the dem agogue? Does it mean a government which listens first to the' unreason ing and seldom gives ear tp . the thoughtful? Does it mean a govern nent in the interests orimarily of ihose whose interests are narrow, whose needs are few and whose ex aggerated oopinions of conditions place them within the catagory of dis contents and revolutionists. Or does it mean a government by the great mass of people between the upper and the lower castes of society whose needs ire diversified, whose relations are far reaching, whose interests are multitudinous and whose bpportuni ties of participation in governmental affairs depend upon their intelligence and their knowledge 'of public wel fare? Elkhart Review. The Pace That Kills. Albert O'Brien, aged 24, married for one year and until two years ago a noted foot ball player has made a short run at "the pace that kills." Two years ago he was disabled by in jury in a foot ball game. Popular sympathy elected him unanimously as tax collector and treasurer of Totowa, N. J. No breath of suspicion had been raised against him until in a re cent raid on a poker room he was found within it. An examination was made" of his accounts and he was found short $4,000.

According to recent immigration figures for the port of New Yorkalone of the 880,543 aliens who were ad- a. mitted into the United States during the. fiscal year just ended, over 23 per cent were Italians. The Jewiäh immigrants numbered 125,000, but for this large total notorious evils and atrocities in large measure. There is nothing strange about a movement of population that results directly from massacres to stimulate emigra tion, and the arrivals we are admit ting from that country are not "ref ugees" in any sense, but workmen i.i quest of better industrial opportu nities. Italian workmen come here because employment is to be had almost everywhere on good terms a. wages that are extraordinarily high to Italian workmen. The Soath wants them: railroads doing construe tion wrork stand ready to employ them, and contractors from various parts of the West and Northwest are competing for their labor. Italy is fairly prosperous now. He. finances are in fine shape.' her credit is good and her industries are ex panding. But notwithstanding her re cent progress the demand for labor in her cities is not equal to the supply and for this reason we had 221,000 Italian arrivals last (fiscal) year and are certain to get as many, if not even more, next year, the year after, and so on, as long as our prosperity lasts at alt events. The movement is a rematkaLle one from any point of view. It seems, however, that thousands of the Italian immigrants are mere "birds of pas sge." They do not "come to stay" and be assimilated; they do not con template American citizenship. They spend the spring, summer and fall months here, save all they can and return to Italy to spend the winter and invest their accumulations in lan or put them in the savings banks. It is known that thousands have "cross ed the ocean" several times with z view to employment merely. Wheth er it is better for the Unired States that all immigrants should remain here and become naturalized, or whether the development of "bird o passage" phase of immigration is o the whole a good thing, is a ques tion upon which opinions differ. We want the labor of these Italians, and they earn their wages by the sweat of their brow. What they save h their's, to invest and spend as the; will; but of course, the money they send or take home enriches their na tive country at the expense, in a sens of this. How much of American money haf thus gone to Italy no one is in a po sition to estimate. It is interestiig, however, in this connection to note that, according to Consul Genera! de Castro at Rome, the savings bank deposits in Italy show wpnderfu! growth. In 1870, the deposits ag gregated $69,550,000, while at the en j of 1904 they amounted to $411,803,000 To this must be added the $198,000, 000 in the postal savings banks ai;! the sums deposited in the people's banks and other institutions. It is supposed, and not without reason, in view of the immigration facts, that much of this money "was made in America." Inquest on Living Man. Called to take charge of the corpse of a man supposed to have been killed in the Pittsburg & Lake Erie yards at Pittsburg, early Thursday morning. Deputy Coroner Hugh Dempsey found instead a living man and orfe who displayed remarkable vitality. Althoug h both legs were crushed, his head cut and his body a mass of cuts and bruises, received when he was struck by a train while crossing the yards, the injured man talled composedly to the deputy, giving him all the information as to who he was and how the accident occurred and then died. This is the first case on record where a living man has given th cor oner the evidence and information to be used at the inquest into his death. The injured man was George Earl, an automobile machinest, 25 years old an married. - - - Tribune $1.C0 per year. MONTH & here for are getting. such a big jC tr W WWW W UV-i. Debt Will De Paid. The Rev. Henry A. Boecklemann, who has been priest at St. Vincent's Catholic church in Elkhart since 1801, expects this week to wipe out the last of an $s,000 indebtedness on the church property, which has been rais ed within the last year under novel conditions. Father Boeckelmann, who has been in ill health for a couple of eyars, and was told a year ago that his life was likely to terrr;inate at any time announced to his congrega tion that he was anxious to see the debt removed before he died and he would himself pay $2,000 if the con gregation would pay the other $6f00d within a year. The year was up last Sunday and less than $150 remained to Le paid in. Eut there are pledges that more than cover the difference. Sensible PoxtoCace Order.
