Postofflce Box 4. Railway Kings and Railway Men. The other day 30 labor leaders got together in Chicago and adopt ed resolutions, refcring to President Roosevelt's message in the where as, and then resolving, that "any interference with the earning power of the railroads will be detrimental to the railroad employes and make harder the conditions now existing and would be used as a bar toward any future movement on our part for the betterment of wages or con ditions, and for this reason we are opposed to placing the rate making power in the hands of any commission." These resolutions were signed by Geo. W. Lovejoy, of the switch men's union: W. 11. Clark, of the Order of. Railway Conductors; A. Goyt. of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, and P. J. Cuikins, of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. No doubt many honest railway employes will be seduced into making the same serious mistake of fighting against the president when he is advocating a policy that will take arbitrary power out of the hands of the few in order to protect all the rights of the many. The president's policy does not demand a crippling of the earning power of railroads, and does not menace the well-being of railroad employes. What he demands is that the people of this country through THEIR government, shall control railroad rates and prevent rebates. So long as the railroads arc permitted to take the law into their own hands and levy a railroad tax on all shippers—for that's what money collected for hauling either freight or passengers really is— just so long will railroad managers have the power to build up their friends among shippers and kill off the men in competition with their friends. And just so long will they be able to kill off communities by dis criminating rates aud rebates where organized lalwr gets strong enough to protect its rights. And just so long will the money kings who control the railroads be able to silence any big shipper who might liave the temerity to stand by the people in any contest against the encroachments of greedy, unscrupulous and predatory wealth. The place for all railroad employes is shoulder to shoulder with all other men who earn their bread in the sweat of the face, and right tack of President Roosevelt in his courageous fight for the people. Away down deep in the very heart of things, the fight of the people in America is not essentially different from the fight of the people in Russia against the non-producing czars and grand dukes. It is a fight for human liberty. And the fight here is for the freedom of all who work from the grand dukes of finance and industry, who aer as much our overlords as the grand dukes are the overlords of the •working classes of Russia. ' Mary Sontag, Heroine. Mary Sontag of Chicago is a heroine. Mary doesn't know she is a heroine. She doesn't ever, know the meaning of the word heroine. She is 9 years old. Her mother died r/.mt a year ago. uesides Mary there are six children—Mike, aged 8; Rosie, aged 7; Georgie, aged 0; Susie, aged 5; David, aged li; Pinkie, aged 2. Mary mothers all of them. She gets up at daybreak to get her father's breakfast so that he may go to his work. Then she helps dress Mike and Rosie and Georgia and get them off to school. After that she feeds and washes Susie and David and Pinkie. Mary can not read or write. She has been too busy to If.am. Her mother was delicate and Mary had to help with the others. And now her big brood takes all of her time. Besides being a mother Mary is financier and general manager. Bhe pays the rent. She buys the children's clothes and washes and mends them. She gets all the father's wages except what is reserved for his pipe and his car fare. She makes every cent count. The neigh bors say the Sontag kids always appear clean and tidy. Just a slip of an Irish lass with a warm, brave heart—hut a heroine (Just the same. Do you know, we need a new and wider definition of heroism. A kero, in our definition, is one who does the unusual, the startling thing. Whereas real heroism lies in doing the usual thing, doing it over and over with smiling face. The heroism that labors puffers gladly is the heroism that is to save the world. Let the frenzied financiers rage. Let the great strut in their pride. Let the censorious preach their pessimism. The glory and the blessedness of the race is in its every day fWary Sontags. Keelhaul the hazers, dod gast 'em! Somebody please lend Pa Corey a woodshed.

A hap py young husband and a devoted wife struggles through hardsh'ps to success and then on toward wealth and —misery. Is Mrs. Laura Corey, wife of the millionaire, W. Ellis Corey, wish ing for the good Old days of pov erty? The father of the millionaire says: "If my son thinks that Lau ra does not love him, he is wrong, dead wrong. WHEN' A WOMAN SLAVES AND STARVES THROU SLAVES AND STARVES THROUGH A $10 PER MONTH PERIOD WITH A MAN, when she mends his clothes AND DIVIDES Till': LAST CRUST WITH HIM, when she bears him children and rears or buries them, as Laura did for Ellis, ii is safe to say that SHE LOVES HIM." And still we are told the same old story, the story of a pretty face, a man's mad Infatuation; the story of a man's millions and of a wife's broken heart. "THE LAST CRUST!" TO SERVE IN "THE ZONE" ENERGETIC YOUNG MEN OF LINCOLN, NEB.. ON THEIR -WAY TO PANAMA GEO. L. CAMPEN, LINCOLN', Neb., Dec. 21. — In performing the tasks of the govern ment in the canal zone, Chas. E. Magoom, governor general, former ly of Lincoln, has surrounded him self with a number of the friends of his youth. Chas. E. Weidman and Geo. L. Campen have just left to take im portant positions under his direc tion. Weidman, who has been cap tain in the Lincoln fire department for years, will be chief of the Are department. Campen, who lias served as city engineer, will be the water commissioner of the canal zone. He is a student friend of Magoon. Thos. M. Cooke of Lincoln is in charge of the customs. E. Lew i Baker of Lincoln was appointed deputy collector of customs. D. C. O'Connor of Norfolk was selected FAILED. All efforts have failed to find a better remedy for coughs, colds and lung troubles than Foley's Honey and Tar. It stops the cough, heals the lungs and prevents seri ous results from a cold. J. N. Pat terson, Nashua, lowa, writes: "Last winter I had a bad cold on my lungs and tried at least half a doz en advertised cough medicines and had treatment from two physicians without getting any benefit. A friend recommended Foley's Honey and Tar and two-thirds of a bottle cured me. I consider it the great est cough and lung medicine In the world." Chas. McNab, 402 Riverside. In the good old days, for the trusting wife, THE LAST CRUST WAS SWEETENED BY THE LOVE of the only man in the world. Empty is the success that bows in shame the gray head of a de voted father. Cursed is the gold t that only feeds the evil desires that break the heart of a faithful wife! And sometimes we of poverty complain of our hard lot. Is there no glitter of glass upon your table? Maybe the shine of glass and sil ver is not for you. Look for the shine in the eyes of the husband, still youJ fever. Though his hands are gntiyiwith toil and though your own ire hard ened with homely duties, IE frllE SHIXE OF LOVE IS THERS BE GLAD. Think of the brokenhearted wo man of wealth and count *your mercies. LOOK AND THINK, THEN BREAK YOUR CRUST, 'AND THOUGH IT BE THE LAST, BE GRATEFUL FOR THE LOVE THAT KEEPS IT SWEET. CHAS. E. WEIDMAN. for superintendent of the schoi\ system of Panama. All the men selected by Magooi are young, energetic and capabla of active service in the canal zotii.

AT THE THEATERS In his characterization of Abra ham Lincoln at the Washington theater this week, Stephen Fitzpat rick is doing some very clever work, ami the sketch staged by himself and company is being well received. The mysterious Phroso is still puzzling the patrons of the new house, opinion being equally divided on the question of identity. Haverly's minstrels gave a very creditable performance at. the Spo kane last night. Many of the jokes were of uncertain age, but it ap pears jokes, like humans, must grow old. However, Heard and Pearl were very clever, and gave a good account of themselves. Wal ter Wolf's song "King of the Winds, and I," and Beard's "Who's There, Hannah?" were very good. In the olio, Marion and Beard and Marseilles, acrobats, were exceed ingly clever. Manager Henry W. Savage's standard production of musical comedy, "The Prince of Pilsen," one of the greatest successes in this especial field of amusement ever staged in this country, will be presented at the Spokane thea ter Sunday and Monday, Dec. 24 and 25. It is now in its fourth season of continuous success, a record that is rarely attained by a musical comedy and which most pertinent ly evidences its remarkable and distinctive merit and worth. "I will tell the sailors that the safety of the czar and the country lies in their hands," said the ad miral. "They joined the revolutionists yesterday," said the batteship's cap tain.
