But I say let the people keep, to be exercised UN DER THEIR VERY EYES, all the governmental powers not necessary to national unity and safety, and let them adhere to REPRESENTATIVE government IF YOU HAVE A GOVERNMENT BY REPRESENTATIVES CHOSEN WITH REASONABLE FIDELITY, YOU WILL HAVE A GOVERNMENT BY THE PEOPLE. THE EXTREME VIEWS OF ONE REPRESENTA TIVE IN ONE DIRECTION WILL BE OFFSET BY THE EXTREME VIEWS OF ANOTHER IN ANOTHER DIRECTION. AND THE RESULT WILL BE A SAFE AND ROUNDED GOVERNMENT.

CON FISCATING. SHRIEKING] MEDDLING AMERICA. God save us from such a dav. Let One Man Control All the Railroads. By EDWARD H. HARRIMAN, Railroad Magnate. I HAVE been quoted seriously for an expression made JOCU LARLY to the effect that I WOULD MANAGE THE RAILROADS FOR THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, that I would turn my holdings over to the United States for a fair compensation and act then as a commissioner. But lam mis understood. THE TIME HAS NOT COME FOR FEDERAL OWNERSHIP. PER SONALLY. WITH ALL THE LINES IN MY POSSESSION I WOULD BE BETTER SUITED. My policy is to pay dividends.

More Ships In the Pacific Our Only Hope of Peace. By RICHMOND P. HOBSON, Congre»»m»n Elect From Alabama. CHE ONLY POSSIBLE HOPE OF PEACE IS TO GET OUR ENTIRE FLEET OUT TO THE FAR EAST. If Japan cannot And some FL RTIIER pretext between now and the sailing of the fleet it is not unlikely that she will cause the so called yellow press of Japan to inflame the people of Ja pan and use this as a basis to make representations to America to with hold the further progress of the fleet and it necessary PRETEND WITH REGRET THAT SHE HAS TO URGE AND INSIST THAT WE DO NOT SEND THE FLEET FURTHER. All in all we are at a very CRITICAL JLNC'TLRE in our country's for eign relations, and at a period when the Panama canal is not complete, •which will be our dangerous period, the period that will be sought by Japan, backed by the powers, to bring on a war. DURING THIS PERIOD. BECAUSE OF OUR UTTERLY INADE QUATE NAVY, OUR PEOPLE MUST BE PREPARED TO NOT ONLY BE EXCEEDINGLY CALM AND CONSERVATIVE. BUT TO ACCEPT ANY FORM OF HUMILIATION THAT MAY COME. WE HAVE NEG LECTED THE QUESTION OF DEFENSE SO LONG THAT WE MUST NOW "EAT DIRT." OUR POLICY MUST BE TO BUILD SHIPS AND BAT DIRT, AND WE CANNOT STOP EATING DIRT UNTIL AFTER THE SHIPS ARE BUILT. The official announcement that the empress dowager of China will abdicate next February, on the Chinese New \ear, brings to the front the whole question of the fate of that great empire. American diplo macy inaugurated under Secretary Hay and continued under Root secured the adoption, WILLINGLY OR UN ILLINGLY, by the powers of the ''open door policy" for China. Since Japanese ascend ency in the far east a plan has been on foot to overturn this just policy and to substitute for it the DANGEROLS OF INFLU ENCE" POLICY. Japan, alons with the military power? • t Europe, has misgivings lest, with a fair chance and no favor, America might secure the lion a share of the COMING GREAT COMMERCE OF CHINA, and Japan has organized a movement by which America is to be left u» and China is to be subdivided into spheres of innuen :e.

Health Is Worth Saving, and Some Aberdeen People Know How to Save It. Many Aberdeen people take their lives in their hands by neglecting the kidneys when they know these organs need help. Sick kidneys are responsible for a vast amount of suffering and ill health, but there is no need to suffer nor to remain in danger when all diseases and aches and pains due to weak kidneys can be quickly and permanently cured by the use of Doan's Kidney Pills. Here is the statement of an Aberdeen citizen who has reclaim ed good health by the use of thU remedy: August Carlson, living at the Ger man Hotel. West Heron St., Aber deen, Wash., says: "I had so bad an ache in my back that I could hardly walk about or sit down at all. I was terribly weak when I got a bos of Doan's Kidney Pills and used them. The pain disap peared and I was again all right. I had taken different kinds of med icine before this for my kidneys but nothing ever did me any good un til I began using Doan's Kidney Pills. I am thankful to say they cured me." For sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents. Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo, New York, sole agents for the Unit ed States.
