Brvan has written an article entitled "My Conception of the Presidency," for Collier's Weekly. Mr. Bryan says ; The President's power for good or for harm is over estimated. Our is a government o f Government checks and balances ; power is distributed among different departments and each official works in with the others. In the making of laws, for instance, the President joins with the Senate and Houst ; he may recommend but he is powerless to legislate, except as a majority of the Senate and House are also independent of each other, each having a veto over the other ; and the President has a veto over both ; except that the Senate and House can, by a two-third- ''jslheld lfftA. vt s vote, override the Presi- dent's veto. The influence of the President is therefore limited. He shares responsibility with a large number of the peoples' representa tives. "Even in the enforcement of law he is hedged about by restrictions He acts through an Attorney Gener al (whose appointment is approved by the Senate ) and offenders against the law must be prosecuted in the courts so that here again the responsibility is divided. 'In the making of important appointments, too, he must consult the Senate and is of necessity compelled to exercise care and discretion. The most important requisite in a President as in other officials is that his sympathy shall be with the whole people rather than with any fraction of the populatipn. He is constantly called upon to act the capacity of a Judge decided between the importunities of those who seek favors and the rights and interests of the public. Unless his sympathies are right the few are sure to have an advantage over the many, for the masses have no one to present their claims. They act only at elections and must trust their representatives to protect them from all their foes. 'The President, mqst have a know Killed by Cow. r.Thos.

He must possess the moral courage to stand against the influences that are brought to bear in favor cf special interests. In fact, the quality of moral courage is as essential to a public official as either right, sympathies or a tiained mind. 4A President must have counselors and to make wise use of counselors he must be open for conviction. The President is committed ledge by his platform to certain policies and the platform is binding; he is alsOcommitted to certain principles of government, and these he is in duty bound to apply in all matters that comes before him." There is nothing purer than honesty; nothing sweeter than charity; nothing warmer than love ; nothing bnehter than virtue j and nothing more steadfast than faith.

Judge C. C. Kohlsaat of the United States circuit court Wednesday declared Illegal all contracts between newspapers and rail roads whereby the newspapers pay for railroad mileage in advertising. This opinion, which was rendered in a test case against the Monon rail road, sustains the Hepburn act, and also sustains tho interpretation of that act by the interstate commerce com mission. The court grants the Injunction sought by the government restraining the Monon railroad from Issuing passes In return for advertising. Contract With Magazine. The suit was brought by the dis trict attorney to enjoin tho fulfillment of a contract between the railroad and Munsey's Magazine. It was submitted to Judge Kohlsaat on an admission of facts and presentation of briefs and arguments. The government contended that tho exchange of advertising space for transportation amounts to a discrimination against the general traveling public, In that, according to the contention, the value of advertising space is not fixed, as is that of money. The railroad company took tho posi tion that tho Interstate commerce laws do no apply to an agreement such as the one In question, claiming that advertising has a sufficiently fixed value to make it a lawful consideration for the Issuance of transportation.

Income Tax. We favor an Income tax as part of our revenue system, and we urge thn submission nf a constitutional amendment specifically authorising congress to levy and collect a tax upon Individual nnd corporate Incomes, to thn end that wealth may bear It proportionate ihare of the burden of the federal government. Labor nnd Injunctions. The court of Justice are the bulwnrk of our llbertlea, nnd wn yield to nonn In our purpose to maintain their dignity. Our party ha given to the bench a long linn of distinguished Judges, who have added to tho respect and confidence In which this department must bo Jealously We resent the attempt of maintained. the Republican party to raise falso respecting the Judiciary. It Is an unjust reflection upon a great body of our cltltens to assume that they lack respect for the courts.

The only basis upon which the Integrity of our courts can stand Is that of unswrrvlng Justice and protection of life, personal liberty and property. If judicial processes may be abused we should guard agalnat abuae.

We demand that all over thn world a duly authorised passport Issued by the government of the United States to an American citizen shall be proof of tha fact that he Is an American citizen and ahall entitle him to the treatment due him aa such. CIsU Service. The law pertaining to the civil service should be honestly and rigidly en forced, to the end that merit and ability shall be the standurd nf appointment Marine. The Democratic party recognizes tha Importance and advantage of developing friendship closer ties or and commerce between the United States and her sister nations of Latin America and favors the taking of such steps, consistent with Democratic policies, for better acquaintance, greater mutual confidence and larger exchange of trade, as will bring lasting benefit not only to the United States but to this group of American republics having constitutions, forms or government, ambitions and Interests akin to our own. We favor full protection, by both nawithin tional and state governments their respective spheres, of all foreigners residing In the United States under treaty, but we are opposed to the admission of Asiatic Immigrants who cannot bo amalgamated with our population, or whose presence among us would raise a race Issue and Involve us In dtpiomatlo controversies with oriental powers. Wo believe that where an American citizen holding a' patent In a foreign country Is compelled to manufacture under his patent within a certain time, similar restrictions should be apptled In this country to the citizen of subjects of such a country. Conclusion. Tho Democratic party stands for the Republican has drawn to Itself all that Is aristocratic and plutocratic. Thn Democratic party Is the champion of civil rights and opportunities to all: the Republican party Is the party of privilege and private monopoly. The Democratic party listens to tho voice of the whole people and gusges progress by the prosperity and advancement of the average man; the Republican party Is subservient to the comparatively few who are the beneficiaries of governmental faof voritism.

Watson, the ferryman between New Madrid, Mo , and Madrid Bend, this county, was struck over the right temple with the butt or side of a poll ax in the hands of Robert F. Ferguson, sustaining a fracture of the skull from which he died Monday night about 11 o'clock. to There were no the tragedy other than the participants, and Watson was unconcious from the time the blow was dealt until death. Just what the trouble was we are unable to learn, but those who are in a position to know say too much bad whisky is the prime reason for the differences between the men, who had been good friends up to this time. The fight occurred on the public road near the home of Bob Grooms. Rumor has it that the men first came to blows with their fists, Ferguson getting the worst of it; Ferguson thdn left the scene of the fistic encounter and went to the Grooms home where he procured an axe, returned and upon renewing the trouble, used the axe with fatal effect.

The company now charges 5c per message for all messages that go to or from phones outside the city limits, unless the party who rents the phone pays the amount the company wants to charge. In other words, you can pay franchise rates (SI. 50 pr month for residence phone) and 5c per message for messages as stated above, or pay $1.65 and receive free service to phones. Consequently most of our business men will be 'forced to pay the business house rate of $2.75 instead of the franchise rate of $2,00, as messages at 5c each would amount to more than the difference in the rate.

Dr. PiiicHs has measured the growth 'el hair by cutting off circles about one inch in diameter from the heads of healthy men, and o comparing the growth of the patches with that of the rest of llw hair. lie found that the growth rate, generally became slower after cutting; that in mine caws the hair on patches grew at the sflmo rate m the rest, hut that it never grew any faster. The ordinary length of the hair on the head ranges between 22 inches and about 15 inches, flic latter being considered unusually long. It has been calculated tlmt the hair of the beard grows at the rate of one line and a lialf a week; this will give a length of OlA inches in the course of a year.

Money in itself is of no value to anybody except the miser. It is not edible until it is exchanged fcr food. It does not keep off the rain until it is paid out for rent. It docs not protect from cold until it is exchanged (or clothing. Idle money is the most useless commodity . in the world. What money a man does not need to pay his bills he should deposit in a bank, where it will be put to work, In a bank's vault, money is a basis for credit, and credit is necesssary for profitable business. The worst place for a man to keep his money is in his pocket. It burns holes there. It is a' constant temptation to excessive expenditure. The money which a man does not need tor his necessary purposes of food and clothing and shelter should be put to work. Do not hoard it. Its possession is the cause of ceaseless worry. The hoarding of money is the surest way to check prosperity and to throw out of work the very peoples who do the hoarding. Cures Chills and Fever. V. Wirt. NRcoialochoH.

Some of the rich men of that section who could easily supply the needs of those helpless folks by contributing an amount that' they would scarcely miss frpm their vast hoard of money, were appealed to but refused to assist in alleviating the great suffering. The United States government finally took the matter in hand and ordered rations supplied to the food victims for 30 days. , m Take your prescriptions to e Cowgill's Drug Store where they will be filled by a REGISTEREQ PHARMACIST at any hour - Day or Night Cowgill's Drug Store (Incorporated) 1 ' f EXTRA SPECIAL!

It is doubted if this condition, which has now been to a considerable degrco supplanted by a bo hold demand for responsible for tho continued decrease which records kept now show. Sen otis objection is mndo in certain coun tries of Europo to tho rato nt which emigration to tho United States hai reduced their population. Tho United Slates will now seek to learn through Its representatives abroad whether tho methods taken to keep immigrants from this country aro such as to mis roprcsent conditions here. The number of immigrants for May was 3G.317, as compared with 184,886 last year, and 160,327 In May, 190G. Tho immigration from Russia, which was 35,506 In May last year and 28,817 in May, 1906, this year, dropped to 3.SS0. Immigration for six months, in eluding May, show an equally largt falling off, tho total for tho period be ing only 227,283, as compared with 674,6S4 last year and 616,503 the pre vious year. Austria-HungarItaly and Russia show the largest decreases. Tho of thoso coming from Italy for tho month of 32,591 suggests that peonago prosecutions bavo been well nnd perhaps not always truthfully nd vcrtlscd.

Gaines Will Be Missed from the House JOHN WESLEY GAINES, the the orator of Tennessee, guardian of tho Jackson Hermitage and bearer of tho Democratic ark of 'the,cove'nant in congress for 12 years, will no longer grace the floor of tbo liouse. After his present term expires he will return to Tennessee to take up tho simple life and muse on the "ashes of empire" and "what might havo ibeen." For John Wesley Gaines had ambi- tions as well as ability. Ho dreamed of a day coming when the southland would clalnvits own and when anqther Andy Jackson would sit in the presidential chair and scatter tho evil birds from the sacred temples of Democracy. But from these wild dreams Mr. Gaines has just received a rude awakening. In the primaries in the Sixth district ho was defeated for the Joseph. W. Byrne, a renomlnation. corporation lawyer, who told tho votors that Mr. Gaines was of no account in congress, seems to havo been taken at his word, for Mr. Byrne won over Mr. Gaines by a big majority. As tho nomination Is tantamount to an election, Mr. Byrno will Ten-nesse- o cold-hearte- d tnke his scat next March. But Washington will miss Representative Gaines. For, in truth, he was one of tho most popular men on tho Democratic side. Abovo all will be missed his annual request for an appropriation for tho care of "tho Hen mltage." John Wesley has filled more pages of tho Record than any living human being since tho beginning of the government's history. It speech be sliver, he has coined more of It than all of tho mints since tho crlmo of '73. John Wesley first sprang to fame when "Bob" Taylor was governor of Tennessee. One day there came to the gubernatorial sanctum a tall youth who said: "I am John Wesley Gaines." "Have a chair, Mr. Gaines," said "Bob." im"I am Col. Colo's pressively added tbo visitor. "Tako two chairs, Mr. Gaines," 'said "Bob." Whereupon John Wesley became famous. Ho campaigned against J. R. McReynolds for congress when that young scion of the tennis cabinet chartered a street car and a brass band and went out to creato a bigger noise than John Wesley. He didn't and Gaines went to congress. Now cometh young, Joe Byrnes to smite the Goliath of the Sixth Tennessee district While ho may fill the place with credit, there will be an aching void of dense and dignified silence where once the corridors of tbo national house rang with the echoes of a people's wrongs. Spies Hired by Both of the Goulds It will bo alleged, according to report, that Mr. Gould has for several years been training this woman's voice for the grand opera stage nnder the best masters in Europe, and that she accompanied him on long cruises on his yacht. A specific act of misconduct with the young woman will be alleged to havo taken place three or four years ago nt Sidney, N. S. There will bo much testimony from former members of tho Helenlta crew. This, it is said, was only one of a number of acts of misconduct to be charged by Mrs. Gould against her husband. Mr. Gould has had his wife shadowed for a long time, though It was not until her old butler, Paul, found one nt the Jealous husband's paid agents peeking through a keyhole that even tho servants suspected tho house was filled with private detectives. At tho present time acquaintances of the Goulds say, Mrs. Gould has spies In her husband's establishment and the husband has spies In his wife's. THE filing of a suit for J.absolute has by Mrs. Frank Gould rovealed how both Mrs. Gould and her husband have been employing prlvato detectives to watch one another. Mrs. Gould placed detectives on her husband's yacht, Hclenlta, and It Is said the evidence secured by these men will play an important part in Mrs. Gould'8 suit. Mr. Gould In turn placed detectives in his wife's home as servants, It is alleged. Mrs. Gould will seek her freedom on statutory grounds. Tho most sensational feature In tho action has to do with an eplsodo on Mr. Gould's yacht, in which a young singer, whose name has not been divulged, played a leading part. What Republican Is to do tho "fat frying" this year? Thero Is no doubt that Mr. Cortolyou would be best ablo to undertako it. Ho knows all about tho weak spots In the armor of tho trusts and protected monopolies and, therefore, Just about how much fat can bo squeezed out of each corpora tion without making them feel they are being Imposed upon. Then the Wall street financiers, who havo heretofore been charging up their donations to some corporation, must also bo dealt with tenderly now they have to draw against tholr own bank ac counts, and who knows better than Mr. Cortelyou Just how much to as sess them? But there aro peculiar difficulties this year In making collections, be-causo the Interests that gtv; do not repay for what has been dono for them, but expect promises of protection and advantages in tho future. The trusts will require assurances that their particular schedulo shall not bo revised, and with a platform promising all kinds of reform, although none Is intended. It will be difficult to mako a skittish trust magnate bcllevo ho and his Interests will bo left alone, when the Republican spellbinders and candi dates aro assuring tho gullible Republican voters that real reform Is in tended. Rockefeller and Morgan will evidently havo to do tho bulk of the giving for the financial interests, for they hopo to havo tho currency law made perpetual. But thero Is a rich kottle of fat In tho railroads that will yield enough to grease all tho Republican machinery, and allow tho politicians to live In luxury. Tho railroads aro poor now. In consequenco of tho Republican panic and the continued business depression. but If they don't yield to the fat fryer they may, expect that reform legislation, heretofore threatened, might be come a reality, Thon, too, nearly every railroad has been a law breaker, and some are still at It, and the ovldenco s on file In the secret archives of tho Interstate commerce commission. Yes! Harrlman will havo to como down again. Tho Republican fat fryer will havo the evidence of rebating and restraint of trade and high rntes at his fingers' ends boforo he starts on his mission of collecting tho tainted funds to savo the country and incidentally, of course, to save the railroad and the Republican party. The poor old Democracy will havo to trudge along with about enough to pay printing and postage, and rely upon dollar subscriptions and volunteer help. Unless all signs fall, tho Republicans will be swimming In fat, and all the now, reform laws and regulations havo been arranged to help tbo frying process. Still, it will need nn adroit fat fry er. If the Democratic candidates would demand publicity as to where all funds come from and for what ex pended, to be published every day from tho opening of tho campaign, thoy could put tho party of great mor al Ideas, but of corrupt purposes and actions, into a hole that would keep them busy to cscapo from until election was over, tariff-protocte- Tho Republicans In 1S96 had no doubt as to who should bo blamed for tho panic of 1S92-3- , which was brought on by tho reckless silver purchaao act of 1890. That law was proposed by a Republican administration and passed In tho houso of representatives with a udanlmous Republican voto In its favor, and a unanimous Democratic voto against it. Therefore, tho Republican party proceeded to rcsolvo that tho Democratic party was responsible, for: "It has precipitator panic, blighted Industry and trado with prolonged depression, closed factories, reduced work nnd wages, halted enterprises, and crippled Amorican production." The Democrats can now retort in kind by adopting that Republican plank as exactly fitting present conditions for "every consideration of public safety and individual interest demands that the government shall bo rescued from the hands of thoso who havo shown themselves Incapablo of conducting It." Tho Republican party having had full control of the government for tho past 12 years, there can be no Just accusation that tho devilish Democrats havo "precipitated panics, blighted Industry and trade, with prolonged depression," etc. But tho brazen effrontery of our Republican frlonds was qulto equal to the occasion, for to get out of the panic mess they could not charge to the Democrats, tho platform Just adopted at Chicago declared that: "Nothing so clearly demonstrates tho sound basis upon which our commercial. Industrial and agricultural interests aro founded, and tho necessity of promoting their continued welfare through tho operation of Republican 'policies, as tho recent safo passage of the American peoplo through a financial disturbance, which If appearing In tho midst of Democratic rule or tho menaco of it, might havo equaled tho tho familiar Democratic panics of m rates Amy ti local manmer CUMBERLAND TELEPHONE coiiriuTta ft TELEIRAPH CO.
