Mil nave a consiurrame pnn 10 piay, Ri Ar,raham Lincoln was a Unltarlnn. I jJf onp;8 attitude of soul religiously (l, r,n' nlaee. then Lincoln Is un- I j anuhtedly regarded correctly as a Unl tor'.an. Lincoln nrtoe said: "I have nev er united myself to any church, be cause I have found difficulty In giving my assent, without mental, reservation to the long complicated statements of Christian doctrine which characterize their articles of belief and confessions of fnllh. When nny church will Inscribe jover her altars, as Its folc qualifications i f or membership, the Savior's condensed statement of the substance of both Law and Gospel: 'Thou shalt love the Lord Ihy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and thy neighbor as thyself,' that church will I Join with all my heart and all my soul." In Lincoln's statement, which Is enr; roboratert by his biographer, Mr. Nlrh olol, Is precisely the condensed creed that many Unitarian churches publish us the Inspiration of their views. It may then bo said that Mr, Taft would bo the (list Unitarian president since Lincoln, A MISTAKEN MAY. A Kansas farmer, becoming tired of life, hanged himself the other day and left a concise, luminous explanation of his act, pinned to his coat-tall: "For forty years I have been raising more corn to feed more hogs to get more money to buy more land until I now own more land than one mitn ought to own, so I quit the Job, I am not crazy, but Just tired of life and want re.it jnd peace and ship." . Now what was the matter with this man? He had been going the tread mill round, as many others are doing, with no leisure apparently for the en joyment of the refinements of life. He was tied to his land. Very likely he could pace over his fields and declare his acres without missing a foot; or guess accurately the weight of his hogs, and discuss Intelligently the cause for the high price of corn,, and all .i,ie established ths .evel of his life. Bo he became weary of It all and sought rest from his toll and free. idom from his slavery by the wrong route. This man va's under no ihllg.-itlon :o "own more lnnd than one man ought to own." He could have stopped short of this and could have turned the sur plus value of his hogs Into means for cultivating the higher aspirations of h's being that reveal life In It truest and highest meaning. Can It be possible that this man had gono the treadmill round so long that desire and aspira tion for better things had been crush ed out of him? Was all that remained the physical shell only and the sort ofraR0? Tnlnk ot tnc pleasure of llet- "rest 'and peace," he craved U to bo j expressed in physical terms? It is not an impossibility for a man to become so deeply In bondage to material !n crptl'. es and ends as to tleiitrjy uf fertually his initial power to' appreci ate, lay hold of, and enjoy life of the I. . .. . . . . . , ... lruri ana most oenencini Kind. Al- though this man declares emphatical ly that he Is "not crazy," the public v 111 continue to have a suspicion that ho did not act In a thoroughly sano manner In persisting In a course so slgnnlly blind to his highest Interests. JOUISAMHTIC .OMISRES. The belief used to he strong that the business of the Journalist and that of the politician had best be kept opart. In deed, it was our own Sam Powles, of New England, Who was one of the strongest believers In the doctrine that an editor to do his best work, should not take an active part In politics and there accumulate ties anil obligations to hamper his free thought. Whether the reverse Is true, that Is, whether it is for the best In terests of a politician to bo an 'editor on the side, is another question. We can consider the connections of Mr. Bryan, the probable nominee of the democrat party, with The Common er, anil the connections of Mr. Hearst, the heart and soul of the Indepen- lent party, with certain papers all over the land; then there seems to be reason to wonder why It was that Mr. Taft did not keep up his Journalistic work so successfully started as a court reporter In Cincinnati.. This wonder Is only the greater tn view of the extending of the olive hraneh of peace by Air. ltryan to Mr. Hearst the pther day. Perhaps If Mr. Taft were of the Journalistic fraternity to-day, liistPiid of a "hns been," he, too, might be singled out for expressions of friendliness from Lincoln, Nebras ka. The advantage Mr. Dryan has when able to place on the newsstands during the convention copies of The Commoner is nut to be laughed at. Few aspirants for office have been ablo to express their views to the del egatfs at a national convention In such an effective manner." As for the particular article referred to, that In regard to Mr. Hearst, Its objects are not difficult to discern. For Mr. Bry an to defend Mr. Hearst's attitude and sincerity at this time Is particularly significant. Aa the Providence Jour nal says: "Mr. Aryan has no reason to like Mr. Hearst, whose wildly rad ical program Is a sort of burlesque of his own. Furthermore the Inde pendent party threatens to cut Into 1 j, ... , tno ((moeratlc vote more than the republican." Continuing, says that paper: "Does Mr. Hryan think that In this case a soft answer will turn away wrath? If he does, he has misconceiv ed the character of the chief apostle of yellow Journalism, Tho Hearst movement Is not'ljlioly to bo retarded by anything a democratic candidate can say." Jt Is Bryan, the Journalistic politi cian, rather than the political Journal ist here? His object Is not hard to, see. One Kentucky delegate Is quot es as giving 11 as nis, nonet that the independent party, when It holds Its convention, will endorse. Mr. Hryan fnr thA nrcsldencv r,r n i,t for tne presidency or, possibly, ac- cept the whole -ticket. Whether this will really be the result Is qucsHnn- nhlo. Certainly Mr, Hearst's newspa pers could more enthusiastically en dorss Mr. Hearst for president than the Paexli'sa one of Lincoln. And, In case he were not elected, those sheets would have enough material to (111 countless pages, demanding a national recount, which might not show any fraud but would sell any number of papers. Tho silly season truly hns opened, A member of the committee on resolu tions of tho democratic convention, who Is a former governor of tho statn of Colorado, declares with all serious ness that ho believes the bent run ning mate that Mr. Hrjan could have would be Mr. Roosevelt. "I believe that If his namo should he presented, he would .prove a winner and that, If nomlnaWd, ho would accept; I don't see how ho could refuso." Indeed, he Is not sure but that tho mere men tion of Mr, Roosevelt's namo 1 would result In a stampndo of democrats for him for first place. Mr. Roosevelt has an important engagement In the African Jungle next year. The Bridgeport Telegram waxes ethereal. On Its front paso yesterday Is tho following effusive heading: "Winds do blow; boats they go fast, not slow. On they dash through waters blue, steered by sailors bravo and true, hustling for ' the prize. There was life; there was strlfi. Ab the vic tories were won, some surprises at tho rivalry and fun." My! My! Tho report Is that New York state Is to build' a new $2,000,000 prison at lona Island to take the place of tho present prison at Sing fln. In con sequence not a few "triidlow-dram-mers," which depict thrilling escapes from the last named Institution, will have to change their setting. Early yesterday morning a dozen boxes of records were delivered at Mr. Taft's otflco at Hot Springs, Va.. ac cording to the news accounts.
