Do not get disgruntled if you fail to get what you think should be coming to you. Mr. Wilson’s cabinet extends from one central figure down to “The Great Unknown.” Mr. Taft retiies from office the worst beat and one of the most admired of our ex-presidents.

( The inauguration of a demo cratic president completes the interment of the republican 1 corpse of last year. __________ i Mr. Taft leaves President Wil- * son many knotty problems to solve but he was sensible enough not to leave an unfinished war between this country and Mexico v for the democratic president to j wind up._ v Judging by the number of ‘ mules brought into the state and sold this Spring the acreage of none of our crops will be cut down tfiis year.

Before the largest and mos enthusiastic crowd that ever as sembled to witness an inaugura ceremony, Woodrow Wilson wai at noon Tuesday sworn in ai president of the United States Escorted to the stand by Presi dent Taft, with bowed head ant his hand resting upon a bible Mr. Wilson received the oath o: office at the hands of Chief Jus tice White, of the United States supreme court. Mr. Wilson is the first demo mocratic president since Grovei Cleveland retired from office. If years ago. Mr. Wilson’s elevation to the presidency was due to the pro gressive sentiment which swept over the country as a result of dissatisfaction with existing con ditions. The sentiment which promoted him to the highest office in the gift of the people was not confined to any section, but prevailed from Maine to Cali fornia and from the Lakes to the Gulf. Entering upon his duties under such conditions, the new president can but be inspired to exert every element of his make up to give to the people a pro • t 1 • • ■» uressive, mean anu juuiciuus au ministration. Mr. Wilson has been a great student of political economy and is familiar with the science of a republican form of government. He is a man of clear cut ideas ind it will be his policy to direct Dublic affairs in the interest of :he whole people and not in be lalf of a favored few. With such a policy his admin stration will prove a gratifying iuccess. Thomas R. Marshall, of In liana, was sworn in a s vice iresident in the senate chamber, ind became the presiding officer >f the senate. During the inauguration cere nonies and the enthusiasm of he democrats, there was noth ng from Oyster Bay except the lull dog snarl. After fifty years of power the epublican party leaves office /ith no prospect of regaining it. laving served the purpose for /hich it was organized it will ease to exist. WEBB LIQUOR BILL PASSED One of the last important : measures passed by Congress ■ was the Webb liquor bill which I prohibits the shipment of liquor i into dry states or through dry } states. The bill was first passed by the House and Senate and up • on the presentation of it to Pres 1 ident Taft, the president vetoed it. Upon the bill’s return to ? Congress it passed both Houses by the constitutional two-thirds i vote and became a law in spite of the President’s veto. Under the Webb bill there can ■ be no shipment of liquor from ' one state where its sale or man ufacture is not prohibited into a state where its sale and manu facture is prohibited. The bill fur ther provides that it will be un lawful to send whiskey through a dry state and common carriers will not be permitted to trans port it from one state to another through dry territory. The passage of this bill will very greatly reduce the govern ment revenue. There will be a great falling off from this source and the government will be the greatest financial sufferer. The passage of this bill is a • , _•_ _ r 1.1__:_ jUSt I cuugiiitiuii uj. me vanuuo states to regulate their internal affairs. The government should not over-ride the expressed wish es of a state by permitting the shipment of liquor into the state for the sake of the revenue that it derives. The statue is the re cognition of the state’s right to control its internal policy and careies out the local option idea which has been employed in many states since the agitation of the whiskey business first be gan. The cutting off of inter-state shipment of liquor will revive the illicit still which is employed in dry sections. Where there is a demand, will be found some who will run the risk of getting caught for the profit the business promises. Uncle Sam will find it necessay to look else where for revenue thus cut off » and also increase his deputy marshals in the outlying dis tricts.
