Engli»lv-8peaking Jews.
"It has been calculated," says the
Hebrew Standard, "that against 60,000
English-speaking Jews toward the end
of the eighteenth century, there are
now 3,000,000. That is to say, one
quarter of the entire Jewry throughout
the world to-day are using English as
their medium of communication. Oo
Jns on at that rate, we may say that
at the end of the present century Eng­
lish will be spoken by 6,000,000 Jews.
That will then put a new face to. the
Yiddish. It will be a Yiddish-English
Instead of a Ylddish-Deutsch, and a
Tch»rnowiteh congress at the open­
ing of the twenty-first centory wil!
stamp the English jargon as the a#
tional language of the Jews."

THE world admires a good loser.
But any admiration for Theodore
Roosevelt is not derived from this
general tendency on the part of man­
kind—not by any means.
THAT Democratic convention was
not so warm a number as was the
Republican convention of a week ago,
but had some numbers on the pro­
gram which might have been omitted
for the good of the party.
P. H. McQARRY, who needs no

SAM GORDON claims the nomina­
tion of Taft was accomplished by
fraudulent means and that the reac­
tionaries who forced his nomination
will all go down in a heap. Further­
more, Sam says that in case of his
own nomination for governor of this
great state, he will not feel in duty
bound to support the' Republican
given out that Bert N.
Wheeler may again be in the race
for legislative honors on the prohi­
bition ticket this fall, and that A.
Baussfield, president of the Duluth
Prohibitionist club, may shy his hat
into the ring for the office of county
sheriff. Mr. Wheeler made a good
run for the senate two years ago, but
the placing of a prohibition candit
date on the county ticket will be a
new Innovation.
THE opinion of the city attorney
on the petition for an eight hour
work day on city work favored the
petitioners, citing where the state
and national government made eight
hours a work day for all laborers
and artisans, and stating that he
found nothing in law or in the city
charter against such concession to
labor. The question is thus left in
the hands of the city council for such
action as they may deem fit to be­
stow upon the petition.
says that "reapportionment, which
Governor Eberhart demanded in his
call for an extra session, and which
the Democratic papers of northern
Minnesota were so insistent about
was killed in the house through an
agreement entered into by southern
Minnesota representatives and the
northern members who were favora­
ble to Gordon's candidacy." If this
be true, Gordon is entitled to lose
caste in northern Minnesota.
TAFT on the first ballot was the
result from the hour of the formal
organization of the body. It is now
up to the president and hls.adherents
to make the fight of iheir lives in
what to all appearances is a Demo­
cratic year, augmented by the split
in the Republican ranks.. If Taft
can be re-elected under existing cir­
cumstances he will show some gen
eraiship which will give him a better
standing with the American voter
than he has enjoyed in the past.
GOV. HADLEY, of Missouri, ..one
of. Roosevelt's staunchest supporters,
has washed his hands of the Colonel

Mr. Gafvert, who is one of the best
known men in the county, was'a
^respective candidate for the office
two years ago, but stepped out of the

year would be James G. Vivian, Mr.

THERE are few men, indeed, who

than does Theodore Roosevelt.
there are few men, indeed, who will
not admire the attitude of La Fol­
lette to a greater- degree than they
do the attitude of. Roosevelt as a se­
quence. ?f the Chicago, convention.
Roosevelt's bolt on the evident idea
that he was greater than the Repub­
lican party or than any other mem­
ber thereof is in marked contrast to
the attitude of La Follette, who says
he "expects to continue active work
in the ranks of the Republican party,
believing that through this party will
be carried out the progressive ideas."
IF the city council has the right,
under the provisions of the charter,
to appropriate monies for the Fourth
of July celebration—a moBt proper
thing—why should it not have the
right under the same provisions, ta
make appropriations for the endow­
ment of a city band? The band
question in Virginia has been a bone
of contention for several years past,
and while there has been a disposi­
tion on the part of citizens to lend
support insofar as possible it has
always been considered out of the
question for the giving of municipal
aid to such an organization. We be­
lieve, however, under the attorney's
construction of the charter, that
such aid can be legally granted.
