Why Not Delight the People? should be allowed to sink out of sight in the grave where its coun try hns laid it. Piute County Landmark. Only Death to Stop Him. President Taft announces that nothing but death can keep him out of the approaching presidential fight. It is evident that the presi dent sees no reason why anyone should be ashamed to be a candi date openly and avowedly for the highest office in the land. St. Louis Republic. Teddy Gets Them Both Ways. Roosevelt takes the same posi tion in regard to the supreme coutt's interpretation of the anti-ttust law as does Taft and the trust magnates while at tbe same time he poses as progressive. Thus he catches them "coming and going." Atchi son County Mail. They Are Correct. Both the revolutionists and Im perial government in China fear foreign intervention in the affairs of the empire and are asking the asking the other naiions to keep hands off. They are more afraid of the foreigners than of themselves. for they say that the foreigners will come only witn one idea, tnat oi personal gain, and will do as they did in the Boxer uprising, demand a large indemnity or a slice of ter ritory. And the Chinese are right- Platte County Landmark. Should Make Htm Falter.

The most urgent need of legisla tion for the disposition of mineral deposits is in the case of oil and gas It is most apparent that the placer law, which is none too well adapted to meet modern conditions in min ing placer gold, is wholly inade quate if applied to public oil lands, inasmuch as oil is discovered at a late stage in the exploration and development of the land claimed under the law.

Now that the government has raised the warship Maine it should be taken out into the deep ocean and while a salute is being fired it W. S. Crouch has the records for some extreme cold weather in Car rollton that are not included in the records published Saturday. He says the longest severe cold spell ever known here was in the winter of 1863-4. Two or three days be fore the first of January, 1864. the temperature went down to 28 de- j grees below zero and ranged be tween zero 20 and 28 below for ten days. In 18G3 the weather was so i severe that the Mississippi river froze so solid that a railroad track ' was laid across the river and sev eral engines crossed on the ice. When this ice broke up 13 steam boats were crushed. Ia the winter of 1878 9 the heavy snow fell. , Snow fell from Thursday night un-' til Saturday noon and measured 27 j inches on a level Carrollton Dem-! ocrat. i befote any right is acquired against the Government, and during all this I time there is uo legal protection of . the oil prospector against unscrupu ; Ious claimants or competitors better ; backed by capital. The need for , remedial oil legislation is some I what less pressing than it was a year ago. by reason of the passage of the act approved March 2, 1911 the effect of which is to validate a ; class of claims which, although clouded by the construction which i the department was forced to place upon the misfit placer law under which title to oil lands must now be gained, were bona fide in that the inception of their development antedated the oil-laad withdrawals. The need for a better law is, how ever, imperative, and the legislative action demanded by the situation should not be limited to an attempt to revamp the general placer law but should consist of tne enact ment of an altogether' new measure especially adapted to provide for the sane and equitable development of this industry in the future. (From 32d Annual Report, Di rector United States Geographical At its meeting Tuesday evening j Survey.) the Paris Odd Fellows' lodge voted to make the public school a gift of the drop curtain and scenery that came into its possession on taking over the Poage opera house - now the lodge building. It is as hand some as on the day it was taken down, and the gift is another evi dence of the spirit that moves that body. It will add greatly to the school auditorium, where it is to be mounted.
