Theodore Roosevelt is making a
trip thru Europe that is surprising
the world. Everywhere he is re
ceived as one of the great rulers of
the earth. Immense throngs of the
people congregate everywhere he is
expected to pass.
In the great ancient hall of the
Sorbonne in Paris he made an ad
dress on "The fitizenship in a Re
public," that is one of his best.
The following are a few quota
"The success of republics,
like yours and ours, means the
glory, and the failure, the despair,
of mankind and for you and for
us the question of the quality of
the individual citizen is supreme.
IJnder the rule of one man, the
quality of the ruler is all-impor
tant the average citizen is an al
most negligible quantity. But
with you and us success or failure
will be conditioned upon the way
in which the average man, the aver
age woman, does his or her duty,
first in the ordinary, everyday
affairs of life, ana* next in those
great occasional crises which call
for the heroic virtues." He scored
sneering criticism and cynicism:
"Let the man of learning, the man
of lettered leisure, beware of that
queer and cheap temptation to pose
to himself and others as the cynic,
the man who has outgrown beliefs,
the man to whom good and evil are
as one. The poorest way to face
life is with a sneer."
"It is not the critic that counts
not the man who points out how
the strong man stumbles or where
the doer of things could have done
better. The credit belongs to the
man who is actually in the arena
whose face is marred by sweat and
dust and blood who strives valiant
ly who errs and comes short again
and again because there is no effort
without error and shortcoming, but
who does actually strive to. do
things who knows the great enthu
siasms, the great devotions who
spends himself in a worthy cause
who, at the best, knows in the end
the triumph of highest achieve
ment, and who, at the worst, if he
who know neither victory or de
"Shame on the man of cultivated
taste who permits refinement to de
velop into a fastidiousness that un
fits him for doing the rough work
of a work-a-day world. There is
but a small field of usefulness open
for the man of cloistered life who
shrink from contact with their fel
lows. The man who does nothing
cuts the same sorry figure in the
pages of history whether he be cyn
ic, fop or voluptuary."
In regard to war Roosevelt said,

brave he should be able to serve

The choice must ever be in favor
of righteousness, whether the alter
native be peace or whether it be

ly be, is there to be peace or war?
The question must be, IS THE
RIGHT TO PREVAIL? And the
answer from a strong and virile
people must be YES, whatever
Then imagine the great virile
American enunciating his pet sub
ject at the heart of the nation said
to suffer the most from the evil de
scribed: "More important than the
ability to work or to fight is the
ability of a nation and its citizens
to have many children. It is the
crown of blessings for any nation
that it shall leave its seed to in
herit the land. The greatest of
all curses is the curse of sterility.
If the failure of society to increase
is due to deliberate and willful
fault, then it is not merely a mis
fortune, it is one of those crimes
of ease and self-indulgence, of
shrinking from pain and effort and
risk, which in the long run nature
punishes more heavily than any one
other. If we of the great republics
bring down on our heads the curse
that comes upon the willfully bar
ren, then it will be idle to prattle
of our achievements."
"Money making, the money
touch, is useful only when con
trolled by other qualities.
"My position as regards the
moneyed interests can be put in a
very few words. In every civil
ized society property rights must
be carefully safe-guarded. Ordin
arily and in the great majority of
cases, human rights and property
rights are fundamentally and in the
long run identical. But when it
clearly appears that there is a real
conflict between them, human
rights must have the upper hand,
for property belongs to man and
not man to property."
"There is nothing to be done
with that type of citizen of whom
all that can be said is that he is
harmless. Virtue which is depend
ent on a sluggish circulation, is not
impressive. There is no place in
active life for the timid good man.
Just now and during the past few
months Willmar has been the target
for the misrepresentation and abuse
of the literature sent out by the
brewing companies. Why? Because
there is no stronger argument than
a living concrete example. The
success of the no-license policy of
Willmar is shown up in every city
and village where there is a liquor
fight in the state and far beyond
the borders. That is why the brew
ing companies find it necessary to
try and misrepresent conditions at
Willmar. And that is why they
joyfully took up the lying state-
merits of the local hooligan sheet
as a corroboration of their slander.
It is said that untruth travels fas
ter than the truth. This may be
true, but truth crushed to earth
shall rise again, and Willmar will
not eventually suffer any evil con
sequences of the campaign made
against her by hooligans either at
home or abroad. The best proof of
the pudding is the eating thereof,
and there is no better way to prove
the progress that Willmar has made
as a clean city thau to induce peo
ple to visit the city and see for
OUR HOUSE OF LORDS.
Froro the Congressional' Record of
Feb. 14 we clip the following extract
from a speech delivered by Congress
man Heury of Texas In reply to Mr
Boutell of Illinois. Every man aud
woman who complains of high prices
should read it:
It is interesting to know bow the
tariff act was framed and brought into
existence. I will call a high Repub
lican authority and permit him to give
expert testimouy. He is a lifelong
member of that party. His indictment
and narrative run:
"Our bouse of lords Is not made up
of landlords, but of steel lords, woolen
lords, cotton lords, lumber lords and
as the latest creation zinc lords. The
amount of taxes and bounties on steel,
woolen and cotton goods, lumber and
zinc is determined for us not by a re
sponsible ministry, as in England, but
by these lords, through the influence
they can exert on individual members
of congress: still more through the
pressure they bring to bear on senate
and house committees and most of all
by their power to dictate terms to the
committee of conference which, sub
ject to the votes of their colleagues
and the presidential veto, practically
determine what the tariff shall be."
Again, with startling interest, this
same author asserts:
"For instance, when the president
sent his demand for a reduction on
lumber to the recent committee of
conference Mr. Aldricb announced
that if that was an ultimatum the
whole bill was at an end. The confer
ence did nothing for six hours until
one of the conferees on the part of the
house, himself a lumberman, went out
and labored with the representatives
of the lumber interests, induced them
to withdraw their claims and reported
their concession to the conference com
mittee, whereupon Mr. Aldrich said.
'Of course if they yield, we yield.' and
so by grace of these lumber lords we
pay the Aldrich-Payne rather than
the Dingley rates of tax and bounty on
all sorts of things. A protective tar
iff is a bounty bid behind tax. a tax
concealed within a bounty, and this,
its dual nature, is not altered by the
fact that bounty and tax are paid to
gether over the same retail counter as
often as we buy a woolen coat, or cot
ton shirt, or a steel hammer, or a gal
vanized iron kitchen utensil. What 1
am objecting to is not either the tax.
or the bounty, or the mixture of the
two, or the amount of both, but hav
ing these things assessed upon me by
the very persons who are to draw the
bounty. This is utterly inconsistent
with the traditions of Anglo-Saxon
liberty on both sides of the water and
is a disguised form of essentially the
same tyranny as that against which
when attempted by the British house
of lords the English nation is protest
And here is the way he frames and
joins the issue for the campaign, and
we promise you now it shall be a
"In some form or other the tariff is
bound to be the issue of the campaign
of 1910. The tariff is with us. and
prices are rising upon us. To be sure,
the tariff is only one of three causes
of the alarming rise in prices, monop
olistic tendencies of both capital and
labor being the second and the infla
tion of the currency of the world
through the increased production of
gold being the third. But on the Dem
ocratic stump the tariff will figure as
the sole or chief cause, and on that
issue pure and simple the Democrats
are sure to win. The Republicans can
hardly expect to create a diversion like
the Spanish war. and this not being a
presidential year the Democrats are
not under the necessity of putting up
a candidate for whom independents
refuse to vote.
"The only chance for the Republic
ans is to shift the issue from the
merely economic aspect of the tariff
to the political issue outlined above."

Witt Hyde, president of Bowdoin col

MRS. NANCY YOUNGBERG OLSON.
Mrs. Nancy Youngberg Olson,
wife of John Olson, formerly a res
ident of this city bat now located
at Estevan, Sask., Canada, died in
Minneapolis last Friday, death be
ing due to cancer, with which the
deceased had been afflicted since
December, 1908. She had been in
Minneapolis receiving medical
treatment since January this year.
The remains were taken here and
the funeral took place Monday af
ternoon, services being conducted
by Horatio Gates. The following
acted as pall bearers: 0. R. Berk
ness, G. P. Karwand, F. G. Handy,
Aug. Anderson, M. D. Manning and
A. E. Rice. Interment was made
at Fairview. Among those besides
the immediate relatives who were
present at the funeral were 0. A.
Hedin and Mr. and Mrs. J. P.
Madison and Mr. and Mrs. Elof
Lee of Moose Island.
The deceased was a daughter of
Mr and Mrs. Andrew Youngberg,
and she was born April 7, 1864, at
Vasa. She moved with the family
to this county in 1873, and they
lived for a number of years on the
Stephens farm four miles southeast
of Willmar! Later the family
moved to Morris where they now
make their home. On May 4,1885,
at Herman, Miss Nancy became the
wife of John Olson, and the same
year the couple came to Willmar to
make their future home. Mr. Ol
son was for some time employed at
the general store of Hans Paulson,
and later worked for Rice & Man
ning. In 1891 he went into part
nership with M. D. Manning and
0. A. Hedin, and conducted a gen
eral mercantile business under the
firm name of Manning & Co. This
continued until in 1897. From
here Mr. Olson moved to Belgrade,
and from there to Kerkhoven, but
the past seven years he has been in
business at Estevan, Canada. Be
sides the husband and a son Roy,
the deceased is mourned by her
parents, two sisters, Mrs. Charles
Stoneberg, of Herman, and Miss
Hattie Youngberg, of Estevan, and
four brothers, Emil A., Leonard,
Edward and Arthur, all of Macoun,
Sask., Canada, and a host of other
relatives and friends.
