One party will "commend," the other "condemn"; one "endorse" and the other "de nounce;" one will advance a plan for a campaign and the other will bitterly oppose it, and so matters run up to the day of election. One party will want a campaign soned with humor, and another will i *ist on the most vindictive abuse and slander. One will exaggerate, magnify and misrepresent in figures and another will keep figures in the background and continue sawing wood. One will want advisers from the best business and social circles of the community and another will take them from pbants, toadies, and the baser class of society. Politics makes strange bed fellows, and with all its peculiarities it hag a faci nation for gome who cannot survive without it. Taken ail together politics has a rich store house of humor, a big Store bouse of worry, some pleasure, some disgust, and much to make wish that be had never taken in its school. sea n "VOO one a course Democrats Gaining In Obi*.

The Japs are a small people but pro gressive, aggressive and ambitious to reach the front with the civilized na tions of the west. In war they make spleodid soldiers and great fighters. Their military and naval discipline is thorough and their privates are thoroughly obedient to orders. They have a splendid army and navy. Their navy is perhaps the best in Eastern waters. In the war now being waged in China the Japs are at the front and are doing splendid fighting. All reports credit them with great bravery and magnifi cent soldierly conduct. In the near future Japan will be the leading coun try in the far Elast and that nation will be fortunate which wins and hold» its confidence and friendship. We believe Japan will be the mistress on Eastern seas. a a ed Already more pensions have been applied for on account of the war with Spain than tho number of men who saw actual fighting service in that war. In the 30,981 pensions that have been ap plied for a great number are for the widows whose husbands died of disease in unhealthy camps or from eating bad beef and other food. These figures alone, taken with the fact that our soldiers are still sickening and dying on their "police" duty in the Philip pines, constitute a pretty good argu ment for the anti-imperialists, an argu ment which touches the pockets of the voters.—Philadelphia Tjmes. Hon. Edgar Wilson has made a good congressman and ft is regrettable for many reasons that the fates of fusion were against his renomination. But of such is life in politics. The good, the faithful and the trustworthy are not always rewarded for what they have done; but then, it is comforting for one to know, as Mr. Wilson knows, that he is rich in the confidence and love of the constituency whom he is serving so faithfully and well. go to The State department at Washing ton has been notified that the Im perlai Palace at Pekin, China, would be entered August 28, and a military prom enade of all nations mode through it.

Ingalls m Death. a speech on the death of Senator Ben l^rd H J. H nu« r th * COn * reMU '' , * 1 "Ben HiThaVgoné to the undlscov- j ! (Ft ered country. "Whether his journey thither was j but one step across an imperceptible frontier, or whether an interminable ocean, black, unfluctuating and voice less stretches between these earthly coasts and those invisible shores—-we do not know. "Whether on that August morning after death he saw a more glorious sun rise with unimaginable splendor above a celestial horizon, or whether his apa thetic and unconscious ashes still sleep in cold obstruction and senseless obliy lou—we do not know. "Whether his strong and subtle ener gies found Instant exercise in another forum, whether his dextrous and disci plined faculties are now contending in a higher senate than ours for suprem acy, or whether his powers were dissi pated and dispersed with his parting breath—we do not know. "Whether his passions, ambitions and affections still sway, attract and impel, whether he yet remembers us we remember him—we do not know. These are the unsolved, the insoluble problems of mortal life and human destiny which prompted the troubled patriarch to ask that momentous ques tion for which the centuries have given no answer: 'If a man die, shall he live again?' "Every man Is the center of a circle whose fatal circumference he cannot pass. Within its narrow confines he is potential, beyond it he perishes; and if immortality is a splendid but delusive dream, if the Incompleteness of every career, even the longest and most fortu nate, be not supplemented and perfect ed after its termination here, then he who dreads to die should fear to live, for life is a tragedy more desolate and inexplicable ihun death." as in In be Oom Paul has issued a stirring ad dress to his soldiers; he said: "If you go home you go into exile.
