On June 2, Mr. Bonaparte, head of the Department of Justice, under the prod ding of incisive aitides in the New \oik World and other newspapers that l.e whs hIO'V and behind the time 9 as a buster, paid: "In some cases wht-re continuous vio lati >ns of the law involve a large lium b:r of illegal acts, each one of them criminal, the total lines which can be imposed have proved a sufficient deter rent. But in other cases it is the opinion of nn st piosecnting officers that the law e in be much more clearly and effective ly enforced throigh the imprisonment of indivl'-u il defendants." That indicated that the attorney-gen eral intended to try his hand at putting some of the "bad" trn»t and corral ion magnates, including such an undesirable citizen as Mr. Ilarriman "behind the bare" if he could convince a jurv he was as black as painted by President Roose velt and others.

Kaufman & Berliner Lumber Exchange Building Aberdeen, Wash. the cabinet concurring, took the wind , out o( the attorney general's sails by de- j (tiding that Mr. Harriman, although j branded as u law breaker, and a most undesirable citizen, could not be pro ceeded against criminally. This decis ion of all the leaders of the republican party was evidently a tub thrown to the Wall street whale, where the Btock mar ket was disorganized and needed a tonic to prevent disaster. The trouble with Attorney-General Bonaparte was—he is now undeceived— that he, like others, had taken President Roosevelt seriously as ready to go to ex tremes to curb the trust magnates and control the railroad managers. He had evidently overlooked the fact that the president in his correspondence with Mr. Harriman bad declared, "you and I are practical men," while l?onaparte ev idently thought the president was an iconoclast and ready to smash thiugsieft j and right. Practical politicians do not 1 work that way, at heart they are as much j mollycoddle as the veriest mollycoddle of them all. The editor of the St. Louis Globe- Democrat appears to be on the verge of nervous prostration these days, and his tender feelings iiave been lately lacerated by the statement of the Chicago Tribune that ' there is no republican party in any of the so-called Southern states." One can barely blame the Globe-Demo crat for getting excited about it, for it is so evidently true that outside of the fed eral officeholders, there is not much to be found of the republican party in tbe South. For instance, at the caucuses in New Otleans lately there were only about 700 votes cast, and there are over 700 republican officeholders. Ilenry M.

J In weighing the bo called arguments against the restoration of majority ru'e that are being put forth throughout the country, bear in mind that wherever there is flo special privilege in a bill the gnaiflians ol the public's welfare aie willing that the people should vote on it; but wherever a special piivilege i§ wrapped up and tucked away in a bill or other public measure these public gua>- dians are wildly opposed to "government as a nnob!" Charles P. Taft, brother of the secre tary of war, is a millionaire president of the Cincinnati gas monopoly and is .vehemently opposing the restoration of majority rule. His connection, however, with private monopoly is not shown in the biographical sketch in "Who's Who," writen by Mr. Taft himself. Why is it that this is concealed? Senator Lodge, of Massachusetts, is I another open antagonist But every one 1 knows that Mr. Lodge is one of the chief speakers in the Massachusetts republican machine. Only the ruling few of the uninformed are opposing the restoration of the peo ple's rule. There are a good many "cornfield law yers" and som>' who would scorn such a designation, giving opinions on constitu tional questions that indicate they do not understand the constitution when they read it. Others like Secretary Root make the sinister proposition that the constitu tion must be construed to mean what the republicans require to carry out their policies. President Roosevelt has so far en dorsed the Labor Unions' program for a shorter work-day by advocating an eight hour day for wives and mothers. A Memorable Day.

The Ground (a Alive. We are so used to thinking of tile soil as mere mineral matter that It comes quite as a shock to find this is a mis take. As a matter of fact, the layer of soft mold which clothes the ground in all cultivable districts and irom which vegetation springs is actually in great Dart a living layer of tiny plants and animals.* Interlacing threads of molds and fungi, worms and grubs, creeping insects, tiny root parasites, decaying leaves and the millions of bacteria which spring from them—all these are lnixed and mingled together .'or many inches down below our feet in a con fused .nass tif life. Germs of all sorts •warm iu countless millions. Indeed, all the" plants that grow and life that exists on the face of the earth owe their being to the fact that the ground Is alive. You take a shovelful of the Inest soil in the world and sterilize it—that is, beat it till all the life in it Vs destroyed—and then plant seeds in ,f. No amount of care or watering will make those seeds grow. Their life de pends on the life in the soil around them.—London Answers. Elephant Life In the Jungle*. Without elephants Jungles would he | virtually Impassable. The great beasts I are a mixture of strength and weak ness, of craft and simplicity. The paths through the jungle from village to village are merely tracks from which the interlacing foliage has been cut and thrust aside and the virgin soli trodden Into a black mud. After a rain this mud is many feet deep, and I no living creature except an elephant, j a buffalo or a rhinoceros could labor through It. The elephant makes his way by lifting one foot at a time and inserting It deep Into the slough In front, withdrawing another with a sound like the popping of a huge cork. Nothing but a ride on an earthquake could be compared with the sensation of being run away with by an ele phant. As for stopping him, some one has well said that you might as well try to stop a runaway locomotive by pulling with your walking stick on the funnel as seek to check an elephant at such a moment with a goad.
