The friends of pre- i datory interests —the beneficial’- I ies of special privilege and gov- £ ernmental favoritism —are al- t ways at work. They never sleep. ( With them politics is a business < because they make the govern- < ment a business asset. They are 1 able to bring pressure to bear 1 upon their class of papers. When < they want to nominate a man for i office, he at once becomes a man 1 of distinction, a man of ability just the man for whom the peo- < pie are looking. And they have < somebody for office whenever J there is a place to be filled. They 1 have their candidates for con- < gress and for the senate. They < have their candidates for all the judgeships, for the cabinet and > for the presidency. They are ' just now laying their plans to < capture the democratic national convention and nominate a cart- ! didate who will be satisfactory to the Wall Street interests. If 1 they find that the progressive sentiment is too strong to be en- ' tirely ignored, they will take someone who has been progres sive enough to furnish them something to talk about bat not progressive enough to frighten 1 the interests. The democrtic party seems ready to e< me into its own. After a long fight the progressive polici es which aroused the opposition of all the predatory interests in 1896 are becoming the accepted policies of the country, but the interests will do their best to nominate a candidate who is not in sympathy with them and who tried to retard their progress. Let not the democrats be deceiv ed. The work of a democratic president will be no easy work. The cleaning out of the stables will be a Herculean task. It will require strength of body, stren gth of mind and unflinching mor al purpose. It is no time for compromise. The times require a stalwart, fearless, progressive leader. The time is not ripe yet for the selection of a candidate. Congress will largely shape the issues and may develope the man but whether he comes from the senate or the house or from a state position, he must measure up to the requirements of the occasion and be able to summon the pro gressive hosts to his banner. He I must be positive and progressive i if he is to win the confidence of .! those who are seeking remedial • | legislation. - TARIFF COMMISSION. | At the last session of Congress | the appropriation for the present tariff board was made, but the ; bill for the Tariff Commission, failed of passage. Under the new conditions that will govern , Congress by reason of a change in membership, the probable fate : of a new bill along the lines of the old one cannot be predicted. ! Champ Clark, who will be the j ! center of the Congressional hub, j is, however, outspoken in oppo j sition to the measure, and when it was originally before the house expressed himself very clearly, j saying: “Mr. Speaker, for some time, I do not know how long, there has been a proposition; ; pending in the United States, in j a sort of nebulous way, for a tariff commission; that is, a body intended to fix rates or even to suggest rates. I was opposed to that last year and I am opposed to that this year, because it is idiotic. It is idiotic because the i constitution of the United States absolutely precludes such a performance. The Constitution lays upon on the Congress the duty of passing revenue bills and lays upon the House the duty of originating them. This duty can not be delegated to a commis sion.— Commoner. DFMOCRATIC POSITION. Senator Culberson presents the case in behalf of Arizona as follows: “Some objections are urged to the constitution which the people 1 of Arizona adopted, but I favored ( its admission upon the broad I' ground that these internal affairs should be left to the people of that territory free from federal dictation, for that is an attribute 1 of their sovereignty. The act of congress of 1910, which provided •: for the admission of Arizona into ( the union, commonly called the enabling act, grants the admiss ion upon condition that the cons titution shall be republican in form and make no distinction in civil or political right on account 1 of race or color, and shall not be repugnant to the constitution of the United States and the prin- i ciples of the Declaration of In- I dependence. 1 ‘ ‘The enabling act also declares ! that the constitutional con veil- < tion of Arizona should make nine < certain provisions by ordinances which should not be revocable except by consent of congress. These are absolutely all the re quirements. “The constitnticn of Arizona complies with the enabling act as j being republican in fr mi, with.; no distinction in civil or political rights on account of race or color without repugnancy to the federal constitution and the Declaration of Independence, and the nine ordinances referred to were pro vided for in proper form. Okla homa was admitted into the un ion in 1907, although con stitution contained the initiative and referendum. This is the democratic position whether one approves of all in the constitution or not he must recognize the right of the people to have what they want provided it does not conflict with the fed eral constitution. KNOCKING THE TEACHERS. To criticise a teacher is easy; it is excellent pastime: it is enter taining to listeners—depending somewhat on the class of listen ers; and it does so much good. It costs nothing to the one who offers the criticism, and the teach : er who is being criticised has nothing to lose—absolutely no ! thing of consequence. ; Os course, it might ruin her )' reputation, but that amounts to i nothing. It might make her un • j popular so that she loses her po i i sition, but that balanced against j the pleasure of the critic is not f worth noticing. She might have 1 to go elsewhere to seek employ ment, with a scandalous story going ahead as a recommend, but that is all right. Her pupils may have their confidence in her 5 destroyed, which would discount ; i her work to her pupils one half; » but if forty pupils do lose half the value of a year’s work, that >| is small in comparison with the pleasure offered some chronic ! I kicker. ! Jonnie does not get along with I his teacher, but it is not his fault. ;Of course not. That cranky tea- I cher ought to know how to make i him like to go to school; He doesn’t work, and is as full of mischief as they make them, but he is just at the awkward ag# and means no harm, therefore ; the teacher should put up with ! him even if it ruins the discip line of an entire room. The fond parent complains to others parents, it becomes common gos sip; and finally the trustees are importuned not to re-employ a teacher who is such a failure. Os i course, that is a perfectly proper thing to do but is it not also fair j and proper for that parent first to find whether he has just couse for his action? In the majority of cases where; severe criticisms are passed, the I one making the charges is not! competent to judge, and even less often has he ever poked his ignorant head inside of a school room, and the more ignorant he | is the more severe and positive he is in his criticisms. One time a man said to a crowd, j “That old woman don’t know nothing. She haint. got no busi-1 ness a teaching school” and then he poured forth a string of such j eloquence. It is doubtful if he j could read in a third reader, and certain that he had never visited the school; but he did keep his boy out every few days so that! he lost his grade. Them he blam-: ed the teacher for the boy’s fail-1 lire. Such a criticism comming : ■from such a person is unworthy of notice, except that in this ins- j tance his influence was sufficient to secure the removal of a good j teacher the next year. There are j many such instances. Another time a man worked ! hard to defeat a trustee at elec-; cion tim?, because the trustee! was favorable to a teacher whom the man objected to. He bad a perfect right to do that, but the reasons for his objections were groundless. The complaint a common one was that the teach er could not get along with his 1 boy, and his boy had never had i trouble with previous teachers. This man’s memory was serious ly at fault or else he was not con-; versant with the facts, for the; teacher in question visited the i previous teachers of this boy ano ! ;in each and every instance they I had had trouble with that good (?) little boy, and the parents! had upheld the boy. Complaining parents ought to tumble to the fact that when the child fails to get along with the teachers, and nineteen out of j every twenty pupils in that room do get along, the chances are good that it is the child’s fault, and not the fault of the teacher. School patrons have a right to investigate school conditions. It is more than a right, it is a duty. There are teachers who are fail ure, and it is a shame for them ; to be retained and waste the time of pupils; but before a removal is made, it should be known that there is good reason for the change. A child’s story or the complaint of a disgruntled parent is not sufficient ground for a re moval. The likes or dislikes of pupils are by no means safe guids of a teacher’s worth. Poor teach ers often please the public, and the best of teachers sometimes , fail to. People who are compe tent' to judge of work should visit schools for long enough periods • of time to know the worth of a > teacher, and then the employ ■ ment should be based on such ■ knowledge. t Parents as a whole, are just, t considerate, and helpful; but it is s doubtful, very doubtful, whethei - they are careful enough in know / ing the real condition of the school room, and there by enabl- ing themselves to foster the best interest of their children.—Re t:cord. • Saved Mis Mother’s Life. : ‘ ‘Four doctors had given me up, ’ ’ . writes Mrs. Laura Gaines, ot .
