THE BELDING BANNER
C. It. CO WHIN, Kditor. THURSDAY, FEB. 8, 1900. KITH IMC imioni:. THE EDITORS MET. The ttepiibllt-au IT Amo-UUoii Meeting In Detroit Lmt Unk. Tho Michigan Republican Press As sociation met at the Way no Hotel, Detroit, last week Tuesday and Wed nesday, and was very largely attended by tho representative editors from all parts of tho state. The variuus ses sions were full of interest and there was much helpful interchange of opin ions on the various prominent topics of state interests. Plans were formed for the dissemination of information rela tive to state affairs that will furnish the people throughout Michigan witlr facts not heretofore thoroughly under stood by them, and especially along tho line of taxation. Tho resolutions adopted certainly show no spirit of cowardice and were as follows: Jlesolced, That tho proper regula tion and control of trusts and corpora tions is one of the most important and urgent needs of the commercial and Industrial Interests of our country and believe that such an end can best bo reached by Federal authority, there fore be It licsohed, that It Is tho tense of tho Michigan Republican Newspaper As sociation that Congress should submit to the states a constitutional amend ment giving to the national govern ment the necessary power to legislate for tho just control and regulation of corporations. Jtcsolced, That a copy of this resolu tion bo sent to each Congressman and atid Senator from Michigan. JUnoUed, That the Michigan Repub lican Newspaper Association hereby expresses its sincere desire that prac tical and intelligent discussion relative to the means and methods of equal taxation shall be continued, and we deem it desirable that the position of our party on that question shall be aggressive and persistant in behalf of the fair distribution of all public bur dens. We have noted with interest the work of the state tax commission in the revelation of gro?s Inequalities in individual and corporate assessments and we cordially approve of tho labors of the commision in that direction, and will aid all practical efforts to have its Information made the basis of a more equitable tax apportionment. Jicsolced, That the Michigan Repub lican Newspaper Association heartily approves of tho lullest investigation into state affairs and the conductor all state officers at all times, whether such investigation be made by judicial authority or by the public at large, and we favor the fullest publicity thai can be given to all otlicial wrong-do ing, without regard to the politics or standing of any persons who may be affected by such investigation. Jicxolccd, That it is the sense of thU Association that such investigations are a part of the duty of the whole state, and not of any part?ular section thereof, and we feel that the state of Michigan, and not one county should . bear the expense of such investiga ftion. The association was placed under ob ligations to that prince of good fellows and popular landlord Mr. J. R. Hayes, for the courtesies of his Wayne Hotel, furnishing free entertainment to each member of tho association while in the city, and use of the "Sun Parlor" for the sessions, which is located on the banks of tho Detroit river, and fitted up with all the taste and convenience necessary. Mr. Hayes also tendered an invitation to a banquet on Wednes day evening, but this was declined be cause most of the members were obliged to leave tho city on early trains. Tuesday evening the entire party attended the Lyceum theatre by special invitation of manager K. 1). Stair an ex-newt-paper man. The annual election of city ollicers is only six weeks from next Monday, but if it is being given inuoh thought by our citizens, they have refrained from giving them publicity, so far as the Banner has be en able to ascertain at least. This is a matter which all should bo deeply Interested in and needs to be carefully considered. Tho prosperity and growth of tho city de pends to quite a largo degreo upon tho officials who control its public affairs. We trust that when the party caucuses aro held and nominations made, that they will be such as to inspire in tho minds of all confidence that the city business will be wisely conducted. Tho BANNER understands that Mayor Spencer does not wish to again be a candidate. As to the wishes of other officials we aro not informed. The Banner has no slate to present but hopes that tho men who shall bo hon ored will bo well qualified for tho posi tions. Our city enjoys a very good reputation near and far for its progres slvcness and we want to maintain It. The Lincoln Republican Club ban quet at Grand Rapids was, as usual, a splendid success, and again shows the great interest and activity Michigan Republicans are taking in the coming political events of 1900. Seven hun dred or more sat down to the tables, and eloquent spoeches were listened to. The BANNER places tho present standing of tho gubernatorial candi dates in point of strength in tho fol lowing order: Ferry, Stearns, Blls9, O'Donnell, Osborn, Campbell. The golden moments In tho stream of life rush past us, and wc seo nothing but sand; the angels como to visit us and wo only know them when they aro gone. George Eliot. W. C. T. U. COLUMN. Eltmctt truiu lrkage of Nrliool !.' Ktudljr liKeii U by tt l'ubllc Sthool Tfttther. When I was about five years old ray father used to smoke a great deal. Ho saw that this was ruining his health. He made up his mind that every time he would go to buy a cigar ho would keep that money and put It in my bank and In a short time he had broken him self and he was a healthier man and my bank was-richer. A lawyer of Los Angeles made at ono time thirty-eight thousand dollars, moro than three times as much as some men save up In a lifetime, but ho got to drinking and got so poor that ho died In the city hospital at city ex pense and was buried at city expanse. ( In Missouri a young man who was going to bo hanged said, "Whenever you take a glass of whisky look at tho bottom and you will seo there tho shadow of a rope." I knew a man who after smoking for many years began to turn blue in tho face and later a cancer settled in his throat. Everything was done to pro long his lifo a little and after many attempts a silver tube was inserted in his stomach and ho was fed liquid food through this tube, and iiftcr having been kept alive in this manner for two years tho cancer spread and went to ward his windpipe and about two weeks later he died of suffocation. About two years and a half ago my father smoked a great deal, and from doing so he got cold sweats at night, but he did not know what tho cause was. I was In Miss Cutler's class, and as we were studying physiology I found out the whole cause of ray father's ail ment. It was smoking and nothing else. I told him what wo had studied, and he made me promise that if I would stop eating so much butter and would never smoke, ho would quit smoking. About three months after he had quit smoking entirely, and ho has not had cold sweats near as much as he had. The result of this les?on was to help 6ave my father's life, and perhaps It will do tho same to more than ono other. The other day there was an item in the St. Paul Dispatch about a man who WHS an habitual drinker. He drank more than he ousht to and got drunk. Tho alcohol excited his brain so that he tried to shoot his wife and then shot himself. Liquor often brings sickness. A con stant user who gets drunk every little while gets dropsy, because tho liquor fattens the inside of the body. The fat grows around tho heart and stops it suddenly. This is dropsy. Tobacco when chewed makes the teeth brown and makes tho breath smell bad. This chewing hurts the salivary glands and wastes the saliva. Tobacco Is hurtful to the teeth. I have heard men Pay that it stops the teeth growing on tho side they chew it. It Inflames the stomach so that it can't digest food. Tobacco smoked weakens the lungs and often causes consumption. 1 k:ew a man who always smoked cigars and got a cancer on tho lip, and as a result suffered much pain and then died. I think the W. C. T. U. is a very good society, and hopo that it will come out victorious at last. The Kalamazoo Telegraph very truly says: While It Is dangerous for any state to make unjust war upon corpora tions, especially railroads, it is equally dangerous to ali, for corporations to gain the upper hands and control legis latures, tho safeguards of tho people And it Is all tho more dangerous to allow corporate Influence to dictate In matters of state taxation, so vital to tho Interests of thousands of farmers and small property owners and busi ness men with comparatively small capital. It is conceded on all sides, that the agitation of this tax question has brought to public notico much In equality and injusthe. Tho remedies proposed may have been imperfect but it will not do for us to bury our heads in the sand and toil ourselves that everything Is all right. Tho Republi can party must act, and act through an honest and conscienscious legislature, free from corrupting Inlluences. Twenty Year of I'hIii. A. II.

The Judgr' Alllduvlt. Some years ago Justice of the Peac Beasley of Missouri was personally In terested la a lawsuit, being a party thereto. It was necessary for him to make an affidavit, and he deprecated the Idea of making It before another Justice or n notary and depriving him pelf of a fee. So he filled out his affi davit, swore to It before himself, sign ed it as Justice and as witness and awaited developments. lie was sure that he would win and thus be able to tax the costs up to the other side. When the case came up before Judge Kelley, the affidavit was offered In evi dence and promptly objected to, the reason being given that a Justice could not swear himself. "Let me seo the affidavit," said Judge Kelley. It was handed up to the Judge, who scanued It carefully for a few mo ments nnd then asked: "Mr. Beasley, will you kindly tell me how you appeared before yourself when you swore yourself and Identified, your own signature?" "That was very easy, your honor, replied Beasley. "I borrowed a look ing glass and went through the formali ties before It." Beasley was somewhat astonished when Judge Kelley sustained the ob jection. Omaha World-Herald. An Awful Mlahnp. Two passengers on an Atlantic liner, one an American and the other an Eng lishman, did not exchange the farewell courtesies when the steamer reached her pier usual between voyagers who have occupied adjoining staterooms and hobnobbed during nn ocean voy age. A plausible explanation was vouchsafed by the American. During the voyage the Englishman persisted in fraternizing with the American in a most obtrusive and an noying manner. Within two days of Boston the Englishman one morning hunted up the American and found him In apparent despondency, gazing sea ward from the hurricane deck. "Confounded blue this morning, old chap. What's the matter?" And the Britisher slapped his companion on the back. "Matter enough," growled the Amer ican. "Ship's lost; captain don't know which way to steer. Forgot to wind the compass Inst night." The Englishman listened with mouth agape, then rushed off to tell his friends of the consequential mishap. Evident ly the gullible Britisher was "pushed along" for f.o:;u time until he found everybody guying him. Boston Post.
