All City Legal Notices are Published in this paper. THE PRIMARY LAW. The very fact that lue legislature saw fit to regulate by law the nomination of candidates for office by political parties dignities the importance of the primary election. Heietolore it has been th«t habit of numerous well-meaning citizens leave to the "politicians" the nomi nations of candidates, but to go to the polls at the regular election and vote. For that reason the "politicians" exer cised a power far out of proportion to tbeir numbers. To diciate who shall ran for office in a paity is g'jing a great ■way toward dictating who shall hold of fice. It has happened in this country that the name ,seitisli interests dictated nominations in bothjparties. In such a case it is quite clear that ,lhe power to nominate is also the [power to elect. Il every well-meaning citizen in tt.e city, county or state gees to the polls at the regular election, he cannot undo what lias been done at nominating conventions controlled by a lew men for seifieli pur poses. Cleaner municipal government is the dominant thought of today. The gov crnuient of municipalities, it is generally recognizsd, has not beeu up to the standard of the'governuient of the states aud of the United States. For years we '• gave too little attention to the cities- Meanwhile city officials were wasting taxes and assessments in extravagance or corruption. Finally we came to re alize that there were great wrougs in cities to be righted. All over the land the movement in cities is against cor ruption aud incompetency and for effi ciency and uprightness.— i'acoma Ledger. ! A CAT HOUSE SCHEME. A house bill hasjbeen introduced which looks like a clever scheme for cat houses to get lists of names from the post office department. Here it is: "Be it enacted by the senate and house of representatives «1 the United States of America in con gress assembled,Jihat postmasters shall not furnish list of names of persons re ceiving mail at j their offices; neither shall snch information be furnished by members of postmasters' families; Pro vided, however,,that;any person, firm or corporation who jmakes aflidavit before any postmaHter.of the Urited States that auch person, firm or corporation is com piling a directory (?) for puulic use from such list of names upon payment of a sufficient sum of money for expense of copying same, not to exceed $5 per thous and names; Provided, further, that any person, firm or corporation who wishes his name withheld; from the public or Ann directories may ; notify the post master where he [receives his mail, in writing to withhold his name from the lists, when the postmaster shall with hold the name." It is probable that the bill will not he taken up by the present congress.—West Coast Trade. President the republi can leaders in Congress are bucking each other, and there will isoon be blood on the politic*! moon, unless Congress passes the measures the president has recommended. If; Senator Knox and some other aspirant for the republican nomination for had voted as they now talk the railroad rate issue would have been settled some year# ago. "GOD KNOWS!" TAFT DOESN.T The ot'er helplessness o! what Glad stone called 1 the c'as-es," in the Ice of the desti uiion of the masses, could not be beter expressed than It was by Mr. I'alt at C'Ki|«r Union when asked what a man is to d*> when out of woik and starving i" » financial criei". "tiud Knows!" was Mr. Taft'i despairing re l,ly. Yes, <Jod known; but hasn't (jod crmrged men with the responsibility ol finding out for themselves? tiod knows everything presumably, b'Jt doel that exempt us iiout trying to find out what «e ilon't know but ought to? In an in dustrial era, 'he statesman who answers *'ijod knows!" to such a question proves his incapacity. A leader who miscon ceives what God knows of such a matter at such a time, and therefore makes mis takes, is infinitely greater than one who thiows up hin hands in despair. Mis takes enow w hat not to do, and by pro ce-s uf elimination lead ou to human k now ledge r*f what "God knows;" but despair bteeds iniMfvietice and leads to nothing.—The Public, Chicago. APRIL SMART SET. Beatrix Demarest Lloyd has written several novelettes for The Smart Set, but her latest (story, "The White Stain," will undoubtedly prove the most popu lar of them Ml. The opening scenes ire in Italy, whither a young English artist has gone to paiut a certain picture. There lie meets a beautiful young Ital ian girl. The story then thifte to Paris, * here the teal drama begins, and a deli* cate yet strong situation is handled with consumate ait. The tinai chapter ol this story is written witli such riepth of teeling that it will linger long in every reader's memory. There is a disposition to regard free trade as ao international question only. It is in fact an iriteistato question as well. Custom-houf>e tariff* obstiuct traffic between people in different com munities of our own country. For this reason the railroad question and the protective tariff question are two phasts of the Paine question. Excessive freight rates and custom-house tariffs operate alike to "protect" the people who have to pay them. Referring to Comptroller Kidgeley's objections to the guaranteed deposit plan the Pittsburg Dispatch says: "Thns an other Bryanism fulls." Everything which does not meet the approval of the interests for which newspapers like the Pittßburg Dispatch speak appears to be "Bryanism." But the guaranteed de posit plan is not to be disposed of by the mere dictum of a comptroller of the cjrrency. South Aberdeen l.euome alive to the fact pointed out in this paper last December, that the Ward gerrymander was calculated to do that dintrict out of a councilman, and an agitation is started to have that suburb annexed to Cos rnopolis. This would be a silly move. It would he easier and better to change the wards back an they were. > It is hardly worth waiting time in | criticising the different currency bills, | for Congressman Keifer, one of the old wheel horses of the republican party, de clares, "I don't think we will get any thing substantial done in regard to fi | liancial relief at this season." Yet the | republican leaders boast tiiat they "do j things." j The republicans are determined to do i nothing about reforming the tariff that protects the trusts, yet we have that high authority, former Governor IJouu las, of Massachusetts,; for saying that the tariff profits of the Steel Trust alone amounted to $162,000,000 for the years 1002 and 100:1. The .Bulletin detective force is entitled to the hearty thanks of the community for ferreting out the religious faith of Secretary Taft. We will all feel easier now thst vie know the distinguished candidate is a member of the Episcopal church. The Taft boomers have him already nominated on the first ballot, but as only a few delegates have so far been elected they may be mistaken, but why discourage this White Houhc figuring based on beautiful hope? The supreme court of Ohio, has de cided the conviction of the Bridge Trust magnates is unconstitutional. ABERDEEN HERALD, MONDAY. MARCH 16, IPOS TAFT. TAKE NOTICE!
