Essayist Hardy, in a "Book on Manners,"
tolls his readers how to do the right thing at the
right time and in the right manner. All this is
of interest, and no doubt the book is worth the
price ; but as he progresses with his subject, Mr.
Hardy becomes more than an essayist he be
comes a moralist, and at this.task he shows him
He points out that no man should permit his
personal appearance to be made a subject of
mirth, that his manners should be in 'keeping
with his surroundings, etc. Excellent advice,
but it is only when Mr. Hardy reaches the last
chapter that he brilliantly illumes the whole
problem. As a summum bonuin, heconcludes :
"A good wife keeps her husband in shape by
continual priming. If' ho says anything silly
she affectionately tells him so. 1 Jie declares
he -will do some absurd thing, she finds means to
prevent him doing it. A wife is a wholesome
though at times painful pair of shears, that clip
off the growths of marital self-conceit, folly, and
sin. If Dr. Johnson's wife had lived, there
would have been no hoarding up of orange, peel,
no touching all the posts in walking along the
streets, no eating and drinking with disgusting
voracity. If Goldsmith had been -married, he
would never have worn that ridiculous and
memorable coat. Whenever you find a man talk
ing absurdly, oddly dressed, or exhibiting any
eccentricity of manner, you may be sure he is
not married. H he were, these wrong growths
would have been clipped off by his wife."
Here in concise language and in effective style
is an argument in favor of marriage. To the
bachelors who have been waiting for some plea
that would appeal to their pride as well as
heart, why look further?. Matrimony is thus
made attractive to the man who would avoid be
ing made ridiculous before his friends, or who
needs the priming process to keep his growth
directed rightly. Three dollars will do all this,
for that is the cost of a marriage license in this

Ship subsidy, railway rate regulation, and one
or two other of "my measures" alone remained
as tests for republicanism. A canvas showed
that both of these measures had many enemies
in the republican ranks, and so the entire scheme
of using the federal patronage as a club to en
force support for "my measures" was disband
ed. No public announcement was made, as that
would have been an admission of failure, which
would not be good politics.
The idea was abandoned because it was found
to be impractical; the bad congressmen would

so. It will at least give the people of Phoenix

as the Globe district is concerned we can vouch

Special Washington Correspondence.
President Taft's scheme to use federal pat
ronage as a club to force members of congress
to give support to legislation recommended by
him has collapsed utterly, and the idea itself
has been abandoned.
Even the standpatters shudder now to think
of the dangers to the G. O. P. that the presi
dent's plan embraced. Had he insisted in en
forcing the idea, it is realized that instead of
the republican party being divided into two fac
tions as at present, the organization would have
probably been completely shattered.
Here is the Taft-Hitchcock scheme which
failed, in a nutshell :
The president outlined, in messages to con
gress, certain legislation known as "my meas
ures." "Support of these measures," declared the
president, "will be a test of party fealty. Repub
lican members of congress who do not support
republican measures have no rightto consider
themselves republicans, or to expect federal
patronage as such.''
The Aldrich-Cannon type of reactionaries at
first clapped their hands in glee over this bril
liant idea of the president's. "This leaves the
insurgents without a leg to stand on," one in
surgent put it. ' ' They must now either be regu
lar, or be deprived, as is their due, of federal
But the praise-giving was not destined to be
of long duration. Discovery .was made that the
president's federal corporation act contained so
many bad features that a large number of re
publicans who were not insurgents declared pos
itively that, patronage or no patronage, they
wouKl nor support the measure.
This disheartening news was carried to the
White House. A gloomy seance between the
party leaders followed. A new problem was at
hand for solution. It had not occurred to the
president that the scheme might make more in
surgents; he had only figured on bringing the
old insurgents into camp.
It was finally agreed that the federal incor
poration act would be dropped from the list of
measures the support of which would signify
party fealty or party traitorship. This seemed
like a solution of the problem. The counters
left the White House in excellent spirits.
But, lo and behold, two days later, there sud
denly arose a new storm. Mondell of Wyoming,
in the house,-and Guggenheim, in the senate, de
clared they would not support the president's
conservation program, though the political
heavens might fall upon their shoulders.
Once again the wise"men ffatlintwl of i,

there is little doubt but that the dissolution of

ives of the senate. The number of insurgents
and progressives has decreased in the last
month, but those who are genuine still have the
enmity of the standpatters and are being pun
ished in every way possible. Their defeat in
the approaching congressional elections will be
brought about, if possible. President Taft, for
instance, is now taking an active but quiet part
in the efforts to defeat Senator LaFollette and
others of the "genuine" progressives of congress.
