the property that secures the mort gage This is notonly double taxation that directly and seriously injures the state by keeping out foreign capital and driving out home capital We cannot tell the extent to which either expul lion or fencing out goes because it is to the interest of those most directly con cerned to keep their own council but we do know that capital always timid h 10th to stay and will not readily go where it is the law that it shall be doubly taxed where its owner is forced to resort to dangerous shifts to insure justice MBS CLEVEL ANDS DEMOCRACY- A lady who knew Mrs

Senator ByronIt the voters of each county the right to yotq a school tax for the pur- POse of extending the school term in the rural districts It does not affect cities of the first second third

The attorneys of the states of the northwest are preparing to file their suits in the United States supremo court for the prevention of the merger of their railroads in the Northern securities company While they do not reveal their plan of action it is intimated that they will attack the adjoined power of Now Jersey to create corporations tor the violation of the laws of other states and this will lead to a determination of the right of states to protect themselves from out side interference WEAK EYES If only for the sake of sustaining their admiration for him as one of the heroes of the SpanishAmeri can war the people of this country will doubtless hope that there is something serious the matter with the eyes of Captain Pearson Hob- son oi the American Navy Captian Hobson himself con tends that there is He applied for retirement from active service on the grounds that the condition of his eyes incapacitates him If he had been retired on this plea he would have been entitle to a salary oi 3 000 per year for the balance of his life But the Naval Retiring Board has declined to grant his request Coincidently the statement comes from Washington thnt Captain Hobson wished to leave the navy in order to enter politics having his heart set on a seat in Congress as a Representive from 4labama Defectiyo eyesight is a bad thing ot coarse but week eyes are preferable to impairedsincer

conventions Any plan can be abused but the primary election plan is the fairer opportunity for obtaining the choice of the people Tho fairest plan is a legal primary at tho time of the regular

BITE AT MR HARRIS RAILROAD Tiptonville Tenn Jan 2SFrom all The American correspondent can gather the railroad proposition of the Hon J C Harris is meeting with cool reception by Tiptonville oltizens The reason of this tho majority of the citizens claim is that Mr Harris rea ses to state at what point the terminus will bo There are two desirable points Tiptonville and Ridgly and it is claimed that when approached upon the subject Mr Harris declares that he has not yet decidedthat st all depends on the amount Tiptouville is willing to put up He has much larger interests at Ridgely than Tiptonville and there fore the demand of the citizens Should the citizens respond and then the road terminate at Ridgelv they would not only be out their subscriptions but would practically sound the death knell of business to this town Mr Harris is very taciturn and so far has not unfolded any of his plans at least definitely New Century Wonder Millions are daily finding a world of comfort in

of Individual observers who declare that the true condition in the Philippines is being coocealiul or that we are hugging delusions of peace that con never ba brought about Is that the government is

Wholesome Advice to chose in the Twenties nr Nell an Those Who Have Itenchcd the Allotcd Three Score and Ten I Copyright W02 by Louis Kloosch N YI From an unusual standpoint Dr Talmage in this discourse looks at the duties and trials which belong to the different decades of human life text Psalms 9010 The days of our years are threescore years and ten The seventieth milestone of life is here planted as at the end of the jour ney A few go beyond it Multitudes never reach it The oldest person ofI modern times expired at 109 years Greek of the name of Stravaride AI to 132 years An Englishman of name of Thomas Parr lived 152 years Before the time of Moses people lived 150 years and if you go far enough back they lived 900 years Well that was necessary because the story ofI the nojd must come down by tradi tion and it needed long life safely to transmit the news of the past If the generations had been short lived tho story would so often have changed lips that it might have got all astray But after Moses began to write it down and parchment told it from cen tury to century it was not necessary that people live so long in order to authenticate the events of the past If in our time people lived only i3 years that would not alfect history since it is put in print and is no longer dependent on tradition Whatever your age I will today directly ad dress you and I shall speak to those who are in the twenties the thirties the forties JtobeyondgFirst then I accost those of you who are in the twenties You are full of expectation You are ambi tious that is if you amount to any thingfor some kind of success com mercial or mechanical or professional or literary or agricultural social or moral If I find someone in the twen ties without any sort of ambition IU youhaveis not the world for you You are going to be in the way Have you made your choice of poorhouses You will never be able to pay for your cradle Who is going to settle for your board There is a mistake about the fact that you were born at all But supposing you have ambition let me say to all the twenties expect manipulation youlookingthat God controls the money markets the harvests the droughts the caterpillars the locusts the sunshine the storm the land the sea and you will get wealth Perhaps not that which is stored up in the banks in safe de deposits in United States securities clothingendabout anylrowTo youforf money and if you get nothing more than the absolute necessities you get an enormous amount of supply Expect as much as you will of any kind of success if you expect it from the Lord you arc safe Depend on any i j other resource and you may be badly I I chagrined but depend on God and allI l will be well It isa good thing in the crisis of life tolmxe a man of large thingtobehind you in your undertaking But it is a mightier thing to have the Goof d heaven and earth your and you may have Him 1 am so gla that I met you while you are in the twenties ourplansand the next for five hundred million years of yqOr existence will be affected by those plans It is about sigh oclock= in the morning of your life Whicwaye twenties Twenty is a great word in the Bible Joseph was sold for 20 piece- of shyer Samson judged Israel 2 years Solomon gave Hiram 20 cities the flying roll that Zechariah saw was 20 cubits when the sailors of tb ship on which Paul

accost those in the thirties You are at alt age when you find wiiat a tough thing it is to recognized uul established in your occupation or urofesiuH Tea years ago you Y thought all that eras Uvcessary for I success was to put on your shutter the sign of physician or dentist or attorney or broker or agent and you would have plenty of business How many hours you sat and waited for business and waited in rain three persons only know God your wife and mrsclf In commercial life you lime uot had the promotion and the increase in salary you antici pated or the place you expected to occupy in the firm has not been vacated The produce of the farm with which you expected to support your self and those depending on you and to pay the interest on the mortgage has been far less than you antici paled or the prices were down or special expenses for sickness made drafts on your resources that you could not have expected In some rc spects the hardest decade of life is the thirties because the results are generally so far behind the anticipa tions It is very rare indeed that a young man does as did the young man one Sunday night when he came to me and said 001 have been 30 marvelously prospered since I came to this country that I feel as a matter of gratitude that I ought to dedi cate myself to God Ninetenths of the poetry of life has been knocked out of you since you came into the thirties Men in the different professions and occupations Star that you were rising and they must pot an es toppel on you or you might somehow stand in the way Thus think you must be suppressed From 30 to 40 iis an especially hard time for young doctors young lawyers young mor ehantsiyoung farmers young me chanics young ministers The struggle of the thirties is for lioness and helpful and remunerative recognition But few old people know how t treat joung people without patronizing them on the one hand or snubbing them on the other Oh the thirties oseph stood before Pharaoh at 30 David was 30 years old when he bean to reign the height of Solomons temple was 30 cubits Christ entered upon his active ministry at 30 years of age Judas sold him for 30 pieces of silver Oh the thirties Whet a word suggest vcTof triumph or disas ter Your decade is tho one that will probably afford the greatest oppor tunity for victory because there i y the greatest necessity for struggle Read the worlds history and know what are the thirties for good or bad Alexander the Great closed his career at 32 Frederick the Great made Europe tremble with his armies at 3i Cortes conquered Mexico at 30 Grant fought Shiloh and Donelson when 35 Raphael died at 37 Luther was the hero of the reformation at 35 Sir Philip Sidney got through by 32 The greatest deeds for God an against llim were dour within Urn thirties and your greatest battles are now and between the time wbc yoit cease expressing your age by putting first a figure 2 and the tim when you will cease expressing it by putting first a figure 3 As it is the greatest time of the struggle I adjure you in Gods name and by Gods grace make it the greatest achieve meat My prayer is for all those in the tremendous crisis of the thirties

favorably from the senate commerce committee This ttiLl not Surprise anybody It lJUII bo understood as a matter of course that the commit tee would report the bill with as little amend ment and with as much haste as was compatible with a tolerable show of dignity 55 Senators Hanna anti Frye profess to entertain no doubt that the bill J will pass But that consummation undoubtedly would surprise some I statesmen even on the republican I side of the chamber men who are I afraid for some inscrutable reason I to face a record vote but who are opposed to the grab and who think they know how to prevent the bill from being brought to a vote j The abovenamed senatorial attor j ness for Standard Oil anti the rest of the allied poor begyars make be lieve they have nothing to fear cx cept from the democratic side of the chamber Accordingly they do not hesitate to Ilet it be known thnt their plan is to repent their last winters tactics get their grab on the calen dar as unfinished business so that it may be kept before the senate to the exiunioii of everything else until the democrats have talked Jhemnelves out and yield from sheer exhaustion This plan of operation goes on the theory that republican senators who are opposed to the outrageous steal lark the courage of their convictions and will not dare to vote against the bill if they are forced to face the issue much less to fight it openly as thoy ought The prospect is therefore that a great deal of time will be wasted which might as vfcll be saved if time republicans who are opposed to the bill would assist in bringing it to a vote after denouncing it as itlIe serves and stand up like men and be counted against it It is diilicult to discuss the details of the measure with any degree of patience It was reported after cer tain conferences of the multimillion nire treasury raiders that they had so changed their bill that it would be somewhat less a source ofmum earned wealth to the Standard Oil and allied interests The report of the committee however shows that those Interests have beet carefully provided for It shows that the Amer lean line will get the snug sum of 4700000 a year for carrying mall matter across the Atlantic or nt least 700000 more than it would have received for the same service under the bill in its old form This one fact is a sufficiently sharp commentary upon the claim of Son JMfif115 I United States in trade It gives the lions share of the shameless grab to lines already in existence and lines which will get the money not for carrying freight but for carrying the snails This fact calls to mind Commis sioner Chamberlains admission thnt the mail steamers will draw most subsidy and carry least bulk of car go It auto calls to mind his cons meat that to complain of that was about as pertinent as to complain that a general gets more pity than a captain but does Iless lighting Finally it recalls time remark in a cir cular of the lleform dub that Mr Chamberlains comment implies that the Internationals great passenger steamers carrying tourists both ways immigrants this way mind prac tically no exports at nil except n few protected manufactures to be sold abroad at lower prices than charged here ore generals in com mand of the export trade which is actually carried on by the freighters who are cut off with a pittance This lute of argument against th monstrous grab is tolerable only as showing how superlatively bad the pending bill is and as exposing time false pretenses under which it sails While opposing the entire grab in whatever form or guise it may ap pear we may turn aside to show how its promoters seek to conceal their real purpose provided we do not forget that it is the steal itself and not any particular manner in which it may be accomplished or time parties vho may get the swag to which the mericon people should olfer all the resistance they can The only argument in support of this grab which has the semblance of reason consists in time fact that European governments have paid and to some extent are still paying ship ping bounties That fact proves nothing If other countries are foolish enough to pay shipping bounties or sugar bounties or any other bounties out of money contributed by their taxpayers with the result that the people of other countries get cheap service at their expense it does not by any menus follow that we ought to be as foolishly generous as waste ful and as unjust to our taxpayers as they are to thiiirsChsicago Chron ide S There is no question as to the folly of maintaining an unnecessary tariff on certain foreign
