M. Bryan's Rebuff In His Own State.
The democrats of Douglas county,
Nebraska, have passed a resolution
tinging Mr. Bryan. The resolution
"We deplore and condemn the action
of William J. Bryan, who, having re
peatedly received the loyal support of
the democratic party of Nebraska, I
hour of need and accomplished its de
feat." Mr. Bryan is always quick to decide
upon a course, always fearless in fol
lowing out. and usually right, as The
Argus maintained at the time, but in
the matter of local option he blundered
by mistaking for a world movement, s
sporadic local protest against political
abuses and loose police regulations.
These were matters for such two-by-four
chautauquans as former Governor
Hanly of Indiana and politicians of
bird-shot calibre Kenerallv. but not wor.
thy the serious consideration of a big j
man HKe .Mr. Bryan, mat ne spilt the
party in Nebraska is to be regretted,
not merely for the local effect, which
will soon be forgotten, but because the
incident tends to weaken the useful
ness of Mr. Bryan on the larger and
more vital matters.
Upholds the Recall.
The supreme court of Texas has just
decided that the recall, the initiative
and referendum are constitutional. It
declares that these three measures are
not is conflict with the constitution of
the United States, and the courts have
no power to overrule or modify such
laws. An elective officer has no more
claim on his Job than the employe cf
an individual and may be fixed at will
by his employers, the people. This
opinion Is the embodiment of common
sense and only one Judge on the su
preme bench of Texas dissented, it
seems the people of Dallas were dissat
isfied with two members of Its school
board snd they fired them and elected
few ones. The old members refused
to vacate and took the case to the su
preme court on the ground that an elec
tive officer has a vested right in his
office and cannot be removed except
by Impeachment The supreme court
dealt with the measure in larger and
higher sense, holding that the people
are supreme and when they find an
official unfaithful they have a right to
discharge him on the spot.
As Governor Deneen said in his testi
mony before the Lorimer investigating
committee, the recall is needed to
make the weak and unworthy walk the
straight but narrow path. Bad govern
ment and corruption dominate. What
ever gives assurance of enabling the
people to Improve conditions should be
Preventlon of Cholera,
Now that there is at best the possi
bility of danger of the introduction into
this country of Asiatic cholera, a pla
gue that has in the past proven most
destructive to human life, it is well for
the people to consider the best means
of prevention. Since the two great
epidemics of choera which swept the
United States in the thirties and the
fifties, great advance has been made in
medical science. It has been discover
ed that cholera is not contagious in
the common acceptance of the word. In
order for the germ of cholera to devel
op in the human system, it must, like
the germ of typhoid fever, pass through
the stomach and lodge in the alkaline
tract of the small intestines. If the
stomach is in a properly healthy con
dition and has a normal reaction the
germ of neither cholera nor typhoid
can pass through it alive.
This is easy for anybody to under
stand and it suggests that the best
way to prevent cholera is to keep the
stomach in a healthy condition. It has
also been suggested that in the actual
presence of the disease the use of acid
drinks made preferably from the miner
al acids, which most closely resemble
that secreted in the stomach, will as
sist in the prevention -of the conditions
which foster the disease. At this time
it is very proper to emphasize the
plain fart that can be understood by

John W. Gates, Dead Game Sport and Nervy Fighter
Once Had the Nerve to Buck
JOHN W. GATES, one of the most
picturesque figures in Ameri
can finance, was bora on an Il
linois farm In 1855. He had
but a brief term of schooling and early
embarked In the hardware business,
starting a small hardware store at
Turner Junction. CL He himself has
told something of his career from thU
Here it is, as told by himself to a I
little group of friends who gathered j
about him at a found table in the red
room of the Waldorf-Astoria one even
leg Just before he sailed for Europe
several years ago.
"First I started traveling for Isaac
L. El wood. I erected the first corral j
in the state of Texas, hiring men to
help me put It up to show the rangers
what use could be made of barbed
wire. I had not traveled very long
when I came to the conclusion that
there was more money In the manufac
ture of barbed wire than In selung it
at a salary of $100 per month. I had
a friend in St Louis I was living In
Chicago at .the time named Alfred
Clifford. Clifford and I started in to
manufacture barbed wire la a very
small way. I think we had three barb
ed wire machines. Our total Invest
ment was less than $S,000 to start
with. The business proved very profit
able, and we shortly increased, not in
the same factory, but in an independ
ent factory. We started an incorporat
ed concern under the name of J. W.
Gates & Co.. into which eight of us
put each $2,500, making a total of $20,
000. All these men are still alive. We
declared dividends of about CO per
cent per week. Our profits for the
first year were $150,000. At the end
of the year I suggested that I either
buy out or sell oot."
The evolution of that plant was the
American Steel and Wire Company of
New Jersey, with a capital stock of
$00,000,000, and tie American Steel
and Wire Company of Illinois, with a
capital of $24,000,000, with Gates as
chairman of botb. Gates sold out bis
interests to J. P. Morgan & Co. when i
the United States Steel corporation
was formed, drawing down many mil
lions in cash, bonds and stock.
Only Bent, Not Broke.
Gates was hurt, badly In the North
ern Taciflc mid in the spring of 1901.
It was estimated that he dropped $5,
000,000 af that time, and, while he ad
mitted that he had been "bent," he
was not broke. Early the next year
he -butted" Into Louisville and Nash
ville and. with his powerful Chicago
following, twisted the control from the
August Belmont people, who had for
years been the dominating factors Id
the management of the railroad. Gates
Is said to have bought one-ha If the en
tire issue of stock at from 08 to 110,
and then the stock Jumped to 130,
when s truce was declared through
the Influence of J. Pierpont Morgan,
then In Europe.
After the organization of the steel
trust Mr. Gates continued In the Iron
and steel business for himself. One of
his latest appearances in the limelight
was as a witness in the steel trust In
vestigation In Washington when he
convulsed the nation by his descrip
tion of Andrew Carnegie and his re
marks on the trust's absorption of the
Tennessee Coal and Iron company
There has probably never been a
financier in America about whom so
many good stories were told as John
W. Gates. A good story teller him
self, his sallies were alike popular in
Wall street, at the race track, before
the faro tables or wherever good sports
and ependers most did congregate. His
popular name in those days was "Bet
You a Million" Gates.
For the last few years Mr. Gates
rather settled down and lived in Tex
as, or at least his home was there,
although Gates lived pretty much all
over the earth, especially In New York

Major Charles O. Birmingham of

a great friend and admirer of Mr.
Gates and gave eome of his reasons.
In the smoking compartment of a train
on his way to Asbury Park be regaled
a group of men with a story about
"Mr. Gates Is surely a dead game '
sport," he said, "and I have been much !
amused to learn that some of his Tex- i
as friends want to run him tor con-
gress. If he runs in that district he (
will be elected hands down. The oth-
er day he paid a short business visit j
to a Texas town and endeared him- i
self to the hearts of the local popu
lace. "Some of the gamesters of the tows
heard In advance that Mr. Gates was
coming snd prepared to furnish a lit
tle entertainment and excitement.
They raised a poker pot of $40,000.
"All right, boys, said Mr. Gates.
'I really haven't the time to play
looker for that roll of money, but I'll
tell you what I'll do. . TU match yon
"There was a hasty consultation, and
the delegation agreed to the proposal.
Mr. Gates pulled out s half dollar and
slapped It down on the table saying,
I'm matching you.
"One of the members of the delega
tion fished out a quarter and covered
It on the table with bis palm. Gates
lifted his hand. He had heads np.
The Texan lifted his hand and dis
played tails up.

If was several days, however, before
Bob recollected the empty apartment
andthe hungry nsn. The night was
Insufferably hot, and he threw wide
the windows and settled back in Dick's
favorite chair, gratefully enjoying the
breeze. This certainly was an im
provement over his own close quar
ters, and he decided to spend the night
here. When, upon the following morn
ing, presenting u rather ungroomed ap
pearance, he afcain entered the living
room a small mound of cigar ashes
upon the rup met hi ye, and he went
in search of brush and pan to remove
the evidence of his carelessness. He
was thus busily engaged when he dis
tinctly heard a key inserted In the
lock and looked up, startled, as the
door swung easily open, but it was
merely to admit the maid, who passed
him with an Indifferent nod and ap
proached the goldfish bowl. A dainty
white apron was tied over her dark
blue dress, and her little high heeled
slippers clicked as she walked across
the polished floor.
Bob arose to his feet. "I fed them,"
he Bald, motioning toward the flh.
The maid turned and looked at bim.
She had the most beautiful eyes that
be had ever seen large and blue and
full of wonder. like a child's.
"You need not trouble any more,"
she sail quietly. "I will attend to
them after this."
He went again to the great apart
ment house that evening at twilight
and. groping his way across the shad
owy rooms, dropped wearily upon the
couch, a high screen concealing bis
figure. Suddenly the entire apart
ment was flooded with light Some
one entering evidently had pressed the
electric button. He lay silent, await
ing developments. Past hli hiding
place came the click of high heeled
slippers. Tbey went on into Mrs
Brant's dressing room.
Bob gathered back the silk of the
screen and peered through, ne saw
the little maid sink upon her knees be

of keys, trying one after another In

found It a difficult matter with that
childish gaze fixed upon him.

I am in charge of his belongings, you
