DAILY ARIZONA SILVER BELT Tuesday, March 29, 1910 A THOUGHT FOR TODAY For the sake of our own freedom we dare not yield to the day's baser inclinations. Each day's duty has a relation not only to that day, but also to all the future. Emerson. This recent fall of moisture is calculated to make a eow smile. March seems to be finding a good may things in Globe to blow about. The downward revisionists should take a tip from the stock manipulators. A little snow covers tho Arizona hills. Now listen to tho Los Angeles newspapers knock. Philadelphia acts like the boy who declares he was not near tho jam, although his face is smeared from ear to ear. Frequent train service will be the making of Miami. It is a well backed town and there is ' nothing its people need be afraid of. If hatpins had been one of the things on which the duty had been Aldriched, perhaps there wouldn't bo so much complaint. If spring feels at all diffident or uncertain of its wclcomo, we can assure it that wo will all be only too glad if it will take off its hat and stay. u Very likely Catherine Mann, described as a Dindftrfilla" of Canton. Ohio, cot tired of wait ing for the fairy godmother to make her appear In tho business circles the opinion seems "to prevail quite generally that the Easter lid is about the only lid that will meet with popular ity in Globe. The first robin has appeared at the usual num ber of places simultaneously. For a simultane ous entrance, it beats all the records for a last appearance. If Mr. Peary's data could not bo understood by a layman, he might be able to submit them Avithout interfering with his contributions to popular literature. That tho trolley car is no respecter of persons is evidenced by the fact that it has bumped the carriage of the czar. The operator didn't get away with it in Russia, however. Neglecting to add anything about contribu tory negligence, the coroner's jurors in the case of the Arkansas negroes lynched at Marion re turned a verdict of simple "suicide." Khartoum eulogies of British rule in Africa ought to bo good for the sale in England of many thousand copies of "African Game Trails" when it comes from the press in book form. Congress treats Peary as though it was his wife. It refuses to accept him until he proves where ho has been. It should smell his breath and see if it is not tainted with gumdrops and icicles. If a strange gentleman calls at your house on April 1 and begins asking a lot of curious ques tions, don't conclude too soon that ho lias en tered too exuberantly into the spirit of the day. lie may be a census enumerator. course, that his publishers are themselves con vinced that he reached the pole. The Silver Belt has assurance that there is to be an independent city ticket in the field. Well, that will not hurt anything. It will be up to tlie voters to decide on the men for the res pective positions and errors, if they should be made at tho primaries, can be corrected at the general election. Trot out your independent candidates and tell the people for what they stand. It begins to look as if Peary had better be pro pared to have his records of discovery of the north polo in pretty good shape. Already the seeds of suspicion that even he did not reach the pole are being scattered over the country, and they are beginning to take root. If his publish ers are wise they will allow him to co-operate with the congressional committee, assuming, of J AN AMERICAN MARRIAGE Sometimes we wonder if this is, in fact, Amer ica. We see the rich man's children sent to pri vate schools,so they may not be contaminated by association with the herd. Wo see the rich man's daughter and his millions sacrificed for a title, and the rich man's son cast off because ho marries beneath his social station. But if there is a place in which we should ex pect to find real Americanism, the true spirit of democracy, it is in our national department of state. No caste should bo recognized there as to the people of this country, and no division of Americans into classes. Our diplomacy has been characterized as of "the shirt sleeve" variety, and'we have rather gloried in the term. So it is that American hearts do not burn in sympathy with Mr. Knox because his son has chosen to marry a "ship girl." Rather there is a national chuckle abroad in the land and much satisfaction, mingled with a degree of dis gust. The senior was the son of a country bank er and was. graduated from an obscure college. He needs go back but a couple of generations to find shirt sleeves, and but a few years to antedate money aristocracy. A spoiled cub of a boy has married a poor girl ; but the chances are at least equal that he has married above his deserts. lie has been denied, probably for the first time in his life, parental approval or forgive ness. So he has to go to work with only a paltry $100 a month as his own, which could not be taken from him. He has gone to work and shows both good sense and ambition in neither railing at fate, sulking over fortune, nor shirk ing the result of his own act, but in tackling the job with good heart and hope of advancement. The boy is an American ; he made an Ameri can marriage. Somewhere back among his an cestors there was the right sort of spirit and right attitude to life. He may never be secre tary of state, but he seems to bo of the sort that makes men. The country wishes him suc cess, and looks to him to prove that this country can find its own even from unfavorable conditions. PRESERVING AMERICAN IDEALS Entirely without regard to the personalities of the would-bo recipients of the government's bounty, the lower house of congress is to be commended for refusing to buy and maintain automobiles for the vice president and the speaker of tho house. There would be no possi ble excuse for such an expenditure. Each of these officials receives a sufficient sal ary to maintain a respectable establishment in Washington. Neither has a position which calls for, or makes obligatory, any social display, or that involves any large social obligation. Nor has this country so far outgrown its tradition of simplicity, that an automobile has become a casual substitute for shoe leather. As a' matter of fact, both of the men who now occupy these offices, are very wealthy. If they have not automobiles of their own, it is merely because they care so little for them, that they would only use them if they came as manna from the people. Both can well afford them, as a personal luxury, if they will. But the time is not here when the American people are willing to provide their officials with luxuries. This may be a prejudice, but it is a most wholesome one. It is one that extends to a preference for men of small financial means in these national positions, men who by their associations, manner of life, and consequent point of view, are in sympathy with the people. It is strangely incongruous, that Mr. Cannon, who has always affected the homespun, the man ners of a commoner, and has made a rather os tentatious display of personal simplicitj7 and guardianship of the treasury, should wish to ride to and from the capitol in a touring car at government expense. It is rather a confession of insincerity and of a willingness to take for nothing, what he would scorn to buy. Seldom in the history of this country have the vice president and speaker been men of as large fortunes, as are Mr. Sherman and Mr. Cannon, and never before in the case of the speaker. It is hardly seemly that they should be willing to accept as gifts, what they can so amply afford personally, and so set a precedent, so contrary to American ideals. But irrespective of them as individuals, it is fortunate that the house has refused to set this precedent. It has refused to enter the path of personal extravagance and display, that would not stop short of additional White Houses with all the elaborate entourage of social elegance. In The Halls of Congress BY TAV. Special Wnshinclos Correspondence. Cannon and Cannonism are still destined to be two of the leading issues in the approaching congressional campaign. The people will be asked, in the November elections, to reverse the decision of the present house of representatives, which, by a vote of 191 to 155, squarely endorsed Cannon and Cannonism by refusing to declare the office of speaker vacant and elect a new speaker. And this situation exists wholly by decree of the so-called republican "insurgents," who, when placed in a position where they were forced to either vote for or against Cannonism, voted for it. The situation is clear-cut. There is no oppor tunity to fool the "folks at home" through technicalities. Only nine republican insurgents are in a position to stand before their constitu ents and declare: "I stand against Cannon ism." All other republicans are on record here in Washington as being for Cannon and Cannon ism. Cannon and Cannonism mean Aldrich and Aldrichism. Aldrich and Aldrichism mean tar iff revision upward; they mean rule by Wall street and the tariff trusts. The opportunity to take Cannon and Cannon ism, as issues, from the oncoming campaign, pre sented itself in tho house when, on last Satur day afternoon Representative Burleson of Texas presented the following resolution : "Resolved, That the office of speaker of the house of representatives is hereby declared to be vacant, and the house of representatives shall at once proceed to the election of a speaker." Page 3190 of the Congressionel Record tells what happened. Every democrat voted in favor of the resolution. One hundred and ninety-one republicans voted against it. Here are the republicans who showed suffi cient, courage to vote as they have talked against Cannon and Cannonism : Murdock of Kansas. Cooper of Wisconsin. Cary of Wisconsin. Nelson of Wisconsin. Lenroot of Wisconsin. Lindbergh of Minnesota. Davis of Minnesota. Poindextor of Washington. Gronna of North Dakota. Here are some of the republicans who at vari ous times have posed as insurgents, but who, when the crucial test came, supported Speaker Cannon : Kinkaid of Nebraska. Norris of Nebraska. "- Ilinshaw of Nebraska. ,''-. Kendall of Iowa. i? . Pickett of Iowa. Haugon of Iowa. ' Good of Iowa. , Woods of Iowa. ij ' Hubbard of Iowa. Fowler of New Jersey. Garnder of Massachusetts. Ames of Massachusetts. K " Parsons of New -York. " i ' Madison of Kansas. Campbell of Kansas. ' - Kopp of Wisconsin. . Davidson of Wisconsin. -" ' Howland of Ohio. K Volstead of Minnesota. Steenerson of Minnesota. " t Johnson of Ohio. Douglas of Ohio. Taylor of Ohio. nollingsworth of Ohio. Townsend of Michigan. Hayes of California. "Had the insurgents stood by us on the vote to declare the chair vacant," said Minority Leader Champ Clark in a statement issued to the press associations, "Cannonism, with all the name implies, would have been as dead as the men who lived before the flood. As it is, the issue of Cannonism survives in full force, for, as sure as a gun is made of iron, if tho repub licans elect a majority of the next house, Mr. Speaker Cannon will be re-elected speaker.'.' "In the public mind Mi Cannon and Cannon ism are absolutely synonymous. They cannot be disassociated by any sort of incantation leg erdemain. We have, in this victory, simply scotched Cannonism, not killed it, and the net result is that tho people, if they really desire to do away with Cannonism, must do so by elect ing a democratic house. "That's the only way known among men by which to accomplish that result a consum mation devoutly to be wished." From a political standpoint, Representative Albert S. Burleson of Texas made a master move when he introduced his resolution provid ing for the unseating of the speaker and the electing of a new speaker. He forced the in surgents to go on record as to their real attitude toward Cannonism. Mr. Burleson is one of the leaders on the democratic side of the house and his action in introducing the measure referred to won him the praise of practically every demo cratic member of the house. "The democrats," said Mr. Burleson, in re viewing the exciting events of March 19, "could not have afforded to pass over the challenge thrown down to them by Speaker Camion when he offered to entertain a motion looking to the election of a new speaker. If we had run away from the trial the republicans would have gone back to their constituents and have said: 'We have revised the rules and put the speaker off the rules committee. This proves wo have not indorsed Speaker Cannon.' But now they can not make such statements to their constituents, for the democrats have forced them to go on record, again indorsing Speaker Cannon and Cannonism." MORNING SMILES "He is a self-made man, I am told." "Quite true; hut his mother-in-law insists ou making some alterations." Adam had just blamed it on the woman. "There wasn't any tariff," he exclaimed. Herewith all agreed he had done his best. Cook I'll be lavin' yez, mum. Mistress Very well, Bridget, keep to the right. Incoming cooks keep to the left. Bacon I see the London suffragettes have adopted colors. Egbert What are they? Black and blue? He Now that we are married, pet, do you love me well enough to cook for me? She Enough, darling? I lovo you entirely too much for that. Teacher I want to impress upon your young mind never to strike the first blow. Jimmie In dat case I don't see how we are ever to have any scrap. "Ah, sir, we do enjoy your sermons," re marked an old lady to a new curate. ' ' They are so instructive. We never knew what sin was until you came to the parish." Beulah When he kissed me last night I asked him to tell no one. Belle And did he? Beulah Why, it wasn't two minutes before he repeated it. Lawyer Am I to understand that your wife left your bed and board. Uncle Ephraim Not 'xactly, boss. She done tuk mah bed and bo'd along with her. "You're buying cheroots since you're mar ried. Beginning to economize, eh?" "No, my wife likes for me to leave the long butts. She loops' em with ribbons and hangs 'e mup about the flat." Miss Elder The idea of his pretending that my haiiwas gray. Miss Peppery Ridiculous! Miss Elder Wasn't it, though? Miss Peppery Yes, just as if you'd buy gray hair ! The dean of a western university was told by the students that the cook Avas turning out food not "fit to eat." "Why, sir," exclaimed the cook, "you ought n't to place so much importance on what the young men tell you about my meals ! They come to me in just the same way about your lectures." "A statesman never looks really impressive," said the student of human nature, "unless he has a distinctive beard or moustache or a bald head." "I suppose," replied the suffragette, con temptuously, "that you are trying to think up another sill reason why women should not go into politics." Cincinnati Tourist (who, for the first time has just entered a restaurant in Paris) Have you ordered? St. Louis Tourist (who has reached the table some minutes before, and who looks up from a French bill of fare) Yes. Cincinnati Tourist What did you order? St. Louis Tourist (impatiently) How do I know? POINTED PARAGRAPHS A lawyer's wife may be his hardest trial. No, Cordelia, a cowcatcher isn't necessarily a cowboy. But kiss by any other name would 't rhyme with bliss. When money talks it doesn't have to use a megaphone. Many a man's life is insured for several times its real value. Remember, girls, the fairest flower is often the first to fade. Ministers and divorce judges are kept busy revising the marriage lists. SPOTLESS AS A JUDGE should be, correct as any of his decisions.
