Qu i n cy He ra 1 d MUST CHOOSE THE BEST. Congressman De Armond of Missouri is justified in his as sertion that the coming session of Congress promises to bi a most important and far-reaching one, and tha it would not be surprising if its influence upon the approaching national elec tion should be great, perhaps even-controlling, in scope. It is by this Congress that the American policy for the set tlement of the Philippine prob lem is to be definitely outlined. It must also indicate what is the American intention with re gard to the keeping of Ameri can pledges tor the national in dependence of the Cubans. Through its deliberations and action it must be made known what is the American attitude toward the growing trust evil The dangerous proposition for the establishment and mainten ance of a big standing army will be made at the session now soon to open. It is more than likely that important financial legislation will be attempted. The Democratic minority in the House of Representatives must be led by a strong, well trained and thoroughly equip ped man throughout a session of such exceptional importance. It is by tin; course of this mi nority on the lloor of the House that the Democratic policy on these momentous issuts will be officially announced. It is through the efforts of this minority lliut the Republican majority must also be placed on record in a manner calculated to make platform trickery or evasion in their next National Con veil tion impossible. The Republic urges Congress man De Armoud as the strong est leader of the Democratic ininority in this jreat fight. For the best interests of the part' it hopes to see so capa I ble and earnest a Democrat j chosen for leadership. The is sue is not that of what section should be "'revived" in its Dem ocracy by being thus honored, but of what is the best man for the place.

DRINK HABIT IS PUNISHED. Rev. Dr. Guirey gave an il lustrated lecture on the liquor traffic to a crowded house in the First Baptist church last night. The lecture was altogether out of the beaten path, the main feature of which was an origi nal drawing on a large canvas nine feet by seven, of a brewery on one side and a distillery on the other. Gut of the brewery came a lony procession of ani mated kegs, bottles, cans mugs and glasses bearing the mot toes: "Down with the church, up with the brewery." "Down with the home, up with the still." "Down with the school, up with the bottle," fid lowed by the others with the motto: "So say we all of us." At the same time, they were supposed to be trampling on law, relig ion and morality. Out of the distillery cama into the foreground an enor mous serpent: This was the liquor traffic, audit was coil ing itself around the home, the church, and the school, and crushing these into ruin. Over the scene was written "Ruin and death." On one side was a large bottle this was "The Bottle of Death" the letters being in the form of an acrostic. The doctor drew a lesson from each word of the acrostic. He had an imaginary jury of twelve drinking men to whom and to the common sense of his audience he frequently appeal ed as he made his points. He declared that the perpetuation of the liquor traffic meant just what was pictured on his can vas. He scored unmercifully the professedly Christian voters who prayed the Lord to put an end to the fearful evils of in temperance, and at the same time voting to perpetuate the j saloon and the liquor traffic. He appealed to the voters in I I . . I 1 , i , . I . . ls I... I t - with their profession, and vote as they pray. Either vote down the liquor power or cease pray ing against it be consistent; vote as you pray. Don't pray to God to destroy the evils of the liquor traffic and then vote for the devil to continue the business. The doctor declared that w were a nation of drunk ards, that the liquor power was the most influential in the land; that the annual drink bill amounted to $700,000,000. This morning the saloons were open as usual. Quincy Herald. Mrs. Walter Moore, of Kan sas City is the guest of her aunt, Mrs. Luta Proctor. She is looking for her husband to-day.
