The sup pression of Recession ly Lincoln did not mean the abolition of Slate powers, either by legislation, en croachmeut, neglect or construe tion." Senator Foraker, in his Memo rial Day speech at Steulienville, tuio, while not mentioning Presi dent Koosevelt's name, gives him this home thrust for his dictatorial attitude in wishing to mime the next li'epulilican nominee leu- Presi dent. After expressing his belief that this ouiilry will nut lollow the Mexican precedent, Mr. For aker said: "Any man whom the American people shall have placed in power nmy well trust them to name his successor, and if he! should not, they would find a way to impress on him that they are sovereign and that lie should be content to trust them as they have trusted him." Henry Watterson, the veteran and brilliant editor of the Louis ville Courier-Journal, who is dis posed lo sipliut sidewuys ut th' popularity of Mr. Uyran as (In probable, almost certain, Democrat ic candidate for 'resident in 1!H)S, suggests that he eould give the name of a Democrat "without en tangling alliuuces with any of the money powers, yet without ante cedents which could drive away j conservative Democrats" who I would (ill the bill for that place. Mr. Watterson might be able to do this to his own satisfaction, for in deed there are iniiliv able Democrats any one of whom would make an ex cellent chief executive of the nation, but this one fact remains undis puted, that not one of them holds the place in the mind and heart of the great democratic masses that William Jennings P.vran does, or who could it t this time poll the vote or be us sure of an election as the Xebraskiin.

CRUELTY TO HUMBLE HEN. Man Complain of Mian Trick Playad on Defenscleaa Biddy. "The meanest trick I erer beard of," aald a poulterer, "la now being played on a certain family of New Jersey hena. This trick comes uuiier two heads. It comes under the bead of cruelty to animals nnd under the head of giving intoxicating drinks to minors. It should be taken up and put a stop to by our female societies Let the sex stand by one another ull the way down the line." "Dill I thought you were talking about cms "I am talking about eggs. That Is the point to my Btory. You know how hens only want to set at certain times after they've laid a couple of dozen gga running? Well, on this New Jersey hen farm I speak of they f 1 tho hens alcoholized grnin. nnd while the poor, unprotected creatures are under the influence they place thein on lop of nests of eccs. and when they come to themselves the past Is a blank, they think they laid the ckiis beneath thein, and for many days sijuut there dullfully until the chicks are hatched. It's a moiiey-makliiB trick, but It ain't right. To make a poor hen drunk to deceive her be sides In so Important a mutter an that of offspring!

He gave utterance to some sane ami sage epigrams that would lit admirably into a democratic platform, and while he did not mention the President by name, some of his pungent thrusts were evinently aimed al l.tin. He fpoke earnestly, the .'ispatohef. say bitterly, of "the Usurpation of those in power, drunk with the lust of uflictal might." That is good, but here is uuutlicr hot" shot : "The crying lawlessness of the age is the gradual weakening of tho legis lative branch of government. We need not denounce the cause ; we deplore the fact. The fact may be the personality of its members ; it may be the insidious attacks of the executive from time to time." Then, probably thiuking of Presi dent Koosevelt's centralization sentiments, he said: "The police power of the State cannot be lost by failure to use it; here inoetion does not justify the seizure of that power by Fedeeal authority. The State cannot be reduced to a mere outlying Federal province, depend- City vj Telephone Company. 'Hie fjhy "f Kniiniiigton sued the I aiiiiinlnii telephone Company f . i f'.'L'U franchise lu.

The ipiostlon us to whcihcr the Couuly Court may legally grant a dramshop license at an adjourned 111 special term came up in the Circuit Court Tuesday. A week or so ago ono Smith applied to the County Clerk for blanks to get up a petition for a dramshop to be conducted in Klvins. He secured the requisite number .of signers and requested the County Clerk to call a special term of tho County Court, al his expense, to pass upon his application. The Clerk did bo, as has been the custom for twonly-live yours. At the special term so called, the Court granted tho dramshop li cense to b'mith. Messrs. I'ipkiu and Nations applied to Judgo KUlian, in open court by potiliun, for a writ of certiorari, lo cause tho County Couit to certify up to the Circuit Couit its records concerning the issuance of llii draumhop license. Tho Circuit Court granted the writ and tho records of the County Court wero corlilied up to the Circuit Court. In passing upon tho caso Judge Kil linn held that I ho County Court was warranted in calling n special term al the expense of the applicant fur a dramshop license; that the Counly Court may grant dramshop liconses at a regular, adjourned or special term: that had tho Legislature intended Unit such business could only bo transnuled at a regular tern., the statute would say "at a regular term," and not "at the next term" of said Courl; that the Supremo Court and Court of Aappcals, in construing tbe meaning of the phrase, "at tho next term," in electior, contest cases, held that it meant at any regular, adjourned or special term The Circuit Court, therefore, held llin Smith's dramshop license- was legal though granted ut a special term and at his cost.

"Hut doctor. It cost me $24." "No matter; better lose your money thun your health." Hut as tho lady seemed unconvinced, tho doctor add ed. "I will Rive you one-quarter the price, and see II I cannot get rid of the thing." 80 the stove departed.

Where Beggars Ride. "If wlho -wore horse lioccars nilKht rlilii," says the old snw, hut In Persia h'-Kuurs actually do ride, al thoiiKh thoy patronize the humblo donkey instead of the morn aristocrat ic brother. How thpy muiuiRe to ob tain thoHO useful animals, or even to exist themselves, passes European comprehension, but tho fr.a remilrrs that they do both. The Persian tramp, astrtdo his donkey, often makes very long journeys even as far as Meshed or Mecca, whence he returns with tho proud tltlo of "Hadji." Useful as the donkey Is to his mendicant mns ter, the latter usually treats him in most brutal fashion, a length of chain belns; a frequent substitute for a whip when the unfortunate animal needs encouragement.
