All of one Nation.
; Referring in his speech at Cairo, j 111., to thegovernment's program of sending the Atlantic fleet around to the Pacific coast, President Roosevelt said: "Inci dentally, I think the voyage will have one good effect, for, to judge by their comments on the I , movement, some excellent people in my own section of the country 1 need to be reminded that the Pa- | cific coast is exactly as much a part of this nation as the Atlan-1 tic coast. In these few words the presi- 1 , ... , . , ; dent has said just the right thing 1 in response to the critics of the , : proposed voyage. Uncle Sam's i I ff war vessels beloug to the whole nation, not to any one part of it. i .,,, . i he east has no greater claim on ! . , I it than the west, nor the west , . I any greater claim than the east. ! ..... It this country were at war with I ,, a Luropeau power, or with one j that had or might seud a strong! fleet into Atlantic waters,it would be good policy to concentrate our navy on the Atlantic coast. In the abseuce of any sucli dan ger the fleet may advisedly be disposed of in a way that will impress upon all people its na tional significance. In President Roosevelt's words there is a mild rebuke to the sec tionalism that, perhaps uncon sciously, prevails in some locali ties. He spoke less emphatically than others might have done on the same subject, but his words were truly expressive of condi tions that are known to exist in parts of the east where the vision is limited by prejudice or ignor ance. Fortunately the ignorance is gradually disappearing, but the idea that the west is as much a part of the nation as the east seems slow in implanting itself in some minds.-Spokesman-Review. j The Bloated Farmer. The western states boast a great deal about their bank de posits. It is true that a single bank of New York City has as much money iu its coffers as do all those of Kansas, for instance —but in the latter case the sav ings are not trust funds or specu lators' accounts; they are those of tens of thousands. of hard working citizens, and represent long days of toil beneath the burning sun. The ownership of the farmers' comparatively plethoric bank book has had a liberalizing effect. The fateful things promised dur ., j ... -ill ing the days of financial darkness , , „ rn , . have been forgotten. I he eapi tahst, while perhaps not cousid , j . , , , ered a comrade, is looked upon . . . . . .... , * as having rights—an attitude , once unknown. There is no more talk of elect ing judges who will refuse to or der mortgages foreclosed. For one thing, there are few mort gages to foreclose, and, for an other, the westerner is in favor of enforcing the law to the utmost, since the local loan fund is a staple source of investment in these latter days. The material welfare that has ; come out of eight years of abund ance is easily outlined. It is ex pressed in a catalogue of canceled j mortgages, new dwellings, re funded bonds, swollen bank de- , j . P<»its and improved belongings. , In some sections the trans formation has been marvelous.

The Richmond, Va., Times-Dis patch of the date of October 4th, contains among its notes of the Episcopal convention in that city special mention of three of the Ida ho representatives, Bishop Funsten of Boise, Archdeacon Jennings of Nampa, and Colonel T. R. Hamer of St. Anthony, lay delegate to the House of Deputies. Of Archdeacon Jennings, who for the third time has been selected to represent his section in the church councils of the east, the paper says: "The venerable Samuel J. Jen nings of Nampa, Idaho, clerical delegate to the House of Deputies, has been for many years a pioneer minister of religion in Wyoming and Idaho. Extraordinary interest attaches to his personality and his career. No man is a more welcome guest than he. His fund of enter taining reminiscence is inexhaust ible and boys and girls of all sizes, sorts and conditions share the de light of their parents and friends in his stories of the frontier, of In dians, wild beasts, adventurous travel and hardships, quaint char acters and humor and primitive uuoouthness. This clerical Othello, master at first hand of narrative, is fluent and interesting as a public speaker, a clergyman of high char acter and earnest purpose, with the practical experience which adapts him peculiarly to share in the com Pensive councils of his church and to promote its activity and use women of the church is the money • raised bv the ladies'auxiliary of the church. The report made at r the convention showed that in the i last three years the ladies have J raised $222,353.35, a figure exceed ing by more than $70,000 the best previous record. As Nampa ladies hel P ed to raise this amount they wil1 be intere8ted in knowing of the results of their work.-Nampa Leader-Herald fulness." Another item of interest to the railroads, which, because of their Some R.ooseveltisms. The first need of this nation is to exercise federal control over the peculiar position, offer the most im mediate and urgent problem, j When federal control is exercised over railroads as it is now exercised , over national banks, there will be . , no falling off in the business pros perity. The chances of the average man to do better will he increased by the new order of things which iR sure to come. I do not believe that our efforts will have anything but a beneficial effect upon the permanent prosper ity of the country. I think the excellent people who have complained of our policy as hurting nusiriess, have shown much the same spirit as the child who re gards the dentist and not the ulcer ! ating tooth as the real source of his , ! woes. The corrupt man of business is as great a foe to this country as the corrupt politician. Both stand on the same evil eminence of infamy. — Weiser Signal. Secretary R.oot in Mexico. Americans can learn many les sons in politeness from cultivated Mexicans. Some of their ways can be understood by the way they are treating Secretary Root. He was met and welcomed by the great Diaz himself, who among the great men of this age. in our estimation, stands where Cromwell stood when the world needed an anchor and human liberty a strong support. All the way to the capital he was greeted everywhere by great crowds and unlimited cordiality and en thusiasm, and. arriving there, a castle was set aside for his use "as long as he would do Mexico the honor to remain." And Secretary Root is wearing the honors showered upon him with consummate tact. He tells his callers that he is in Mexico to dis cuss with their government matters relating to the governments of Cen tral America. tral America. At a dinner he welcomed the growing closer relationship between the United States and Latin Amer ica, especially those states that cluster around the Caribbean sea. That Secretary Root is a very It is a wonder to us great man. that the chiefs of the Republican party do not gathe raround him and make him their candidate next year. He has every needed quali fication and his temperament is of that kind that never follows an impulse into the fire. He is a scholar, lawyer, statesman and an American who holds the honor of native land above fortune or life. He would make a President that all the world would revere.—Good win's Weekly.
