SPRINGFIELD SUN ROGERS GORE EDITOR t WOE TO JlIM THAT BUILDETH TOWN WITH pLOOJj STABLISHETH CITY INIQUITYn WHY Why dId the Republican party in National Convention by a vote of nearly 9 to l refuse to adopt a plank favoring the election of Uni ted States Senators by the direct vote of the people What excuse can Republican speakers offer for this refusal to recognize the desires oi the farmers arid laborers of the country Every farmer in Washing ton county knows that the United proposedlegislation of the farming classes Only last winter the United States Senate un ceremoniously killed the bill to re move the unjust tax from t6bacco after the Lower House by a unani mous vote had declared ifi favor of the tax What do the farmers think of the Republican par tys refusal to stand with them in their effort to throw off this miser able yoke The United States Sen ate is a partner of the trust it is the majnstay ot the tobacco trust If yoikpyote the Republican ticket next November YOUR VOTE WILL BE CAST FOR THE TO BACCO TRUST it will be cast just as any trusji magnate in the nation would cast it werq it possible for you to place your suffrage in his hands If you are a Republican ASK ANY ONE OF THE REPUB LICAN LEADERS TO EXPLAIN WHY THE REPUBLICAN NA= TIONAL CONVENTION BYA VOTE OF NEARLY 9 TO 1 RE FUSED TO ADOPT SENATOR LA FOLLETTES PLANK DECLAR ING FOR THE ELECTION OF UNITED STATES SENATORS BY J THE DIRECT VOTE OF THE PEO lPLE MISS EDITH RUBEL The Springfield Sun congratulates MisS Edith Rubel She enthused her Audience last evening with the melody of the violin a melody as sweet as the ripple of crystal waters in a land i7toses When she touched the Old Fiddle it laughed like a happy child J and carried the audience upon a wave of ecstasy From her violin she sent a message of Good Cheer into every heart in1 the audience and turned the tide of the mind to the Pearls of Life Miss Rubelip an artist arid into her soul the Almighty has breathed the wonders of genius When she comes again lots of I lIsalrpf uswill listen happily while she makes the silyerfeet of the lit r tIe bow romp oer the Old Fiddles strings like fairiesin pastures of lilies CONTROLLED BY THE TRUSTS iThe Republican National Convention Jwas confrulted1 bsolutely by the agents of rjch corporations The work of the contention was contrary to the desires of 80 per cent of the Republican voters of the country The voice of the party was smothered by the big blighting liand of the trust Mr Roosevelt and even Mir Taft vereT ignored and were notTallowed a voice in shaping the plat form Mr Roosevelt was one of the loudest advocates of a Publicity Plank lie also desired that the convention de clare for the election of United States Senators by the people and Mr Taft fay red these reforms but the convene tion turned a deaf ear to their plead ings Mr Sherman the Republican VicePresidential nominee and trust magnate was very distasteful to Mr Rooseyelt Indeed Mr Sherman as a member of Congress was one of the stanch anti Roosevelt Congressman cH ayored none of the Roosevelt re forms and assisted the Lower House of Congress to insult the President bv pigeonholing for twentyfour hours a message he sent to the House Not in the history of political parties have the people seen another spectacle liketh presented by the Chicago con vfentionJ It was a con ention of trust kings pure and simple and it brazonly defied the resident the Presidential candidate and hundreds of thousands of Republican voters t l DEMOCRATS SHOULD I ONTRIBUT TO ST TEi a CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE From pur exchanges we learn that quite a number of Kentucky Democrats are sending 1pa gn contributions out of the State In our opinion this is a mostserious mistake We believe ev ery dollar cpntribdted bya Kentuckian can be used to a better advantage by our State Campaign committee in push ing the work in Kentucky There is much to do and to do it properly will require an outlay of several thousand dollars ISIretardedw a at least to capture the State In every yoting precinct in Kentucky la good strong organization is needed tout the drgariization cnot be satis factorily made if our treasury at State Headquarters empoyerished We have in Kentucky 2000 voting precincts The average cost of organ CQnservativeyesjtiIJ1atedis JItrIbuteings tcfllof these things will cost the committee a very considerable sum of money The postage bill alone will amount to 10000 When we place cost for each precinct at 510 the estil mate is economically made Figuring THE REPUBLICAN BOLT The boltI in the Republican party grows bigger as the days goby theI spreading like waves of wind In East the West the North and the South lifelongloyalty is forgot and Republicans are shouting Nay Nay tq their party leaders The bolt is the Biggest Best thing in America It is reported that 2000 Republicans rin one county in Ohio hvejoined Dem ocratic clubs From other sections of the same State this sort of very grati fying newsis being sent out and a dis patch from Cleveland announces that th State is no longer in depot that Bryan and Kern will carry it from 50 Q00 to 100000 This front the Harrodsburg Demo l crat is very delightful A well known citizen arid merchant of Harrodsburg is in receipt ot a letter from an uncle who resides in Indiana in which the writer stated that he had been a life long Republican ard had never before voted anything but Republican ticket but that in the comI ing election he mtenaed to vote use his influence for William J Bryan and the Democratic ticket He also stated that he was one of flye hundred Repub hcaris in his county who would vote against Taf t and Sherman The writer said Indiana would unquestionably g Democratic at the coming election 0I And again the Harrodsburg Demo crat gives another piece of good news A gentleman told the Democrat that a prominent Mercer county farmer who has for years been a factor in the Re publican party would this time vote for Br an OUr informant says the wan makes no concealment of his pur on a bJsisof 10 to the precinct itwiIJII require 20000 to make precinct izations Of course this includes a big part of the above mentioned postage expendi ute Is it r ot easily seen tht it will cost b 30000 to properly State Headquai tweej25OOOand come from those people iii Kentucky who want to see the Staie redeemed it must come largely from people who are able only to contribute in small amounts We take it that every Democrat who contributes to the campaign fund wants his money used where it will do the most good When this matter is rgiven sober thought we believe every Democrat who desires to contribute will under stand that the State camoaign commit tee can use his contribution to the best advantage j Every thing now indicates that the National Committee will have ample means but we have every reason to be lieve that the State Committee needs funds Therefore The Sun advises I all Democrats to forward their contri butions to the County or Chairman and request that CampaignI butionand the name of the be sent to Hon Ben Johnson Chairman of the State Campaign Committee pose And a little further down the same column in the same we were again very much Jratified to read that uJ Sherman Porter managing editor of the Lexington Herald and formerly the editor of an Ohio Republican news paper will yote and work for Brynn and Kern in the cpming campaign He nas Offered his services to stump hs Home congressional district in Ohio OF THE CITY iSMARES If your boy believes he can do bet ter in the city tryto persuade him that

preconception of him I met riot a visionary orator but a f man of sense in deadly earnestr direct and candid Coming to know him better seeing him in his homey I found a man able and sincere devoted and devout having a childlike faith in the people in God and truth changed mv opinion al together jlfelt that I had done him injustice I would as soon trust him in the Whjte House as George Gray or

the influence of a Chris tian mother to guide his footsteps to that ppint in life here he may see that true success walks hand nhand with clean manhood DOVE HUNTING Do you enjoy hunting Do you enjoy oing out with a gun in search of some t ling to slay something with life in it If you do why not hunt crawling rep tiles Why not hunt poisonous and hideous things You ought to findiruch pleasure in hunting andkilling those things that area menace to mankind Your efforts would be appreciated by the people and you could delight your self with the thoughtthat your time was not wasted you could even con gratulate yourself upon being one of the benefactors of the community But are you a dove hunter Do you find pleasure in killing these pretty birds If you do can you not find an other pastime in which to satisfy your desire for fun asjsocshe is an emblem of the Holy Ghost the symbol of Purity Did you ever read the story of the dove and the olive branch in Genesis Its a beautiful story Do younot re member that the Ark rested upon the mountains of Ararat while oer the face of the world there were the desolate waters of the flood and that Noah opened the windows of the Ark Sent forth a dove from him to s andi the waters were abated from the face of the grolmd But the dove found no rest for the soleof her foot and she returned unto him IiAnd he stayed yet another seven days and again he sent forth the dove out of the Ark and the dove came in to hun in the evening and lo in her mouth was an olive Isaf plucked off so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth Is this not a pretty story of the little birds devotion to duty Can you not now see the little fellow soaring oer the vast deep in search of some object that might be placed at the feet of the Master of the Ark as evidence that the drwn of the New Day wjis at hand And you love to killj doves What about the dove with the olive branch If you could go back through all these centuries and take a stand upon the mountains of Ararat would you kill the dove with the olive branch Would you slay the first herald of Itfe New World When Jesus Christ was baptized it is recorded in holy writ that he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove land lighting upon him Indeed the doye is a sacred bird Let it live and coo and make light for the World ALL IS NOTWELL4 Mr Hitchc clc and other Republican campaign ma lagers are alarmed pver the Idthargy n Republican ranks in the Eastern Stat s They have consulted President Rcosevelt and he advises hard work in hose States that have al ways been sal ely Republican This in dicates that even the very confident Mr Roosevelt is uneasy and is appre hensive as to the outcome in sections heretofore strongly Republican Word is sent forth that something must be done to enthuse Eastern Republicans It occurs to us that the undertaking wiiPbe difficult The Republicdn party is guilty of too many of the sins of com mission and omission and these con scientious Eastern Republicans who have served notice that they will vote the Democratic ticket and others who are indifferent will refuse to open their hearts to Republican erithusiasm Mr Taft says that the man who says that he said that one dollar a day and plenty of fat meat to eat was enough for any laboring manf is a liar INTERESTING REVIVAL And Bunch of Good News Reported By Mr Cocanou her of Lung Run On theinigjit of the 10 of August the Beech Grove church and pastor began ReviIThe meeting continued until the night of the 21st On the evening of the last day thirteen candidates were buried byj the pastor with Christ in baptism hi denom1inationsing which was throughout a haimom ous one From a heart full of love Bro Rawlings in a plain practicable way told ot the unbounded privileges of the Christian which left the heart thirsting for a deeper spiritual life and closer communion and fellowship with the Master and held up Jesus as the sinners only hope and Savior We have had many good meetings before this one but we seriously doubt whether the church since the war has had a meeting of such deep spiritual power Among the candidates was a woman who waS seventyseven the day fpllow ing her baptism and who on a bright day last June married her third husband Amid good wishes and loving farewells our pastor and Bro Rawl ings left us for other fields As the yeairs go by it is beautiful to see how love and friendship grows stronger between church and pastor A visit to an historic spot is always interesting to a lover of history so during this meeting the preachers availed themselves of the opportunity of visiting the famous Per ryville battle field After a good din ner which was served at the kind and generous home of an old friend Mr Nelson Dunsmore in West Boyle who was reared back in the mountains of Tennessee and served under Gen Price in Missouri during our late unpleasant ness In addition to the above named fnends Messrs Adam and George Elliott Mesdames Martha and Ida Elliott and Josie Hold rman Misses Lula Grain Annie Dunsmore Clida Covle and Cloe Grain and Master Henry Holderman drove over to the monu ment which was erected in 1902 by the gen rosIty of State and citizens and stands on a hill that was all stained with blood on that October evening in 62 On a pedestal some twenty feet high is a figure of a rebel soldier in fun uniform and fully armed standing with a faraway gaze as if looking for an approaching enemy who is still sur rounded by his fallen comrades who are taking their long rest while he keeps ward over their sleeping dust After looking upon the hard stony features of that lone sentinel keeping watch over that thatisi and is an eternal monument of a Cause we thought of the noble boys in gray who far ayay from home and friends surged and beat against the bulwarks of the Union on that day and gave up their lives in a fruitless effort to sustain a cause to them so dear Bro Rawlings after quite an exten sive search was rewarded by finding a bullet that was planted there on that fatal day As a result of the meeting at Beech Grove the Sunday school and prayer meeting have taken on new life Bro Hatchett and his Pleasant Hill church Marion county will begin a protracted meeting on the night of Sept 7 Rev W T Short of Whitley county and former pastor will assist The Christian or disciple brethren are having quite an interesting meeting at Perryville Ky The pastor Mr Glendon is assisted by Rev Walden Up to this writing there have been eleven additions Mr Harding Isham who lives over in the edge of Marion county had the misfortune to lose his dwelling with nearly all its contents by fire on the morning of the 29th It was a neat lit tIe farm house There was 500 insur ance A few days ago we went over to see our friend Willie Lay ot Jensontoti who was our last mail carrier on the Star Line He has been sick about seven months with inflammation of the bladder but under the blessing qf God and treatment of Dr Hames of High Bridge he is improving very fast His sister Mrs Tatham of near Lebanon is with him Mr John Elliott Carpenter John is working at his trade in Danville We still hear from our old friend Mr Hacyey Lawson of Rockwall Tex as Though feeble from an attack of la giippe last winter he is able to be up and still writes letters to his friends I He will be eightysix on the 30th of November He says The Lord is still I his helper and his future hope w bright tI Oh the birds and rabbits We just hardly eyer saw the like Ii dont knpw just how many flocks of birds there reJon our farm The other day our boy was cutting weeds and ran the machine in a flock of tiny little birds about as large as the end of your thumb The mother fluttered off pretending to be crippled After driving out from the little fellows the machine was stopped and in a short time we heard her cluck ing to her scattered brood very much like a hen would call to her chicks i About the middle of August Mr Harve Key and wife went to Martins ville Morgan county Ind for his health As his many friends know he t has been afflicted with rheumatism for tmany years fIthe misfortune to lose six ten dollar bills He believes it was lost at the watering place in Nevaea This is the A largest loss in cold hard cash that we have heard of for some time Some people are so forgetfulas to lose their temper before folks We once knew a lady who colored up and got angry and that too in thei presence of company Others get angry before their tamilies and large assemblies we have known some who yielded to the heat of passion in the House of God ItImatters nOt when nor where Vie allow this subtle enemy t9 enter our hearts unless it be a righteous anger we show up to a disadvantage before an t f iels and men lowering ourselv

Bro bas failed to answer my second letter on the subject qf Instrumental music in the church I wiH proceed to give my views to the public xAs he affirms that the use of the organ in the church is unscriptural and sinful I will try to give a tangible view of the subject and affirm the neg ative That brings me to the defense I of the organ injthe church as Scriptural and right and not only admitted and sanctioned of God but under the law ofitfoses was a command and a promise to the Christian era arid a fact in the church of Christ or Christian church My good Bro lays down three facts in his first and only answer as a basis to stand on and a standard to approach Walk by one rule Be of the same j mi land speak the same things The question is how will my good Bro ac complish his objecta great majority submit toa small minority and that too in the face of all the facts that we find in Gods word against his views on the subject Now to facts see Ex 1512 Then sang Moses and the ChIl- dren of Israel this song 2 v The Lord is my strength and song and He has become my salvation 20 v And Miriam tile Prophetess the sister ot Aaron took a timbrel in her hand and all the women went out after her with tim brels 21 v and Miriam answered sing Can we be of the same mind bets see did they slug Yes Did they Use instrumental as well as vocal music Yes Did they sing to the Lord Yes they sang and made melody unto the Lord How was it accomplished By strong faith deep love and earnestness of soul and with their voices produced yo al music and with their timbrels made melody to the Lord see Matt 158 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth and honoreth met with their lips but their heart is far from me 9 y But in vain they do wor ship me We can agree here that it is heart service either in singing or4ny other part of divine worship and that if selfishness prompts us tp action that God will reject it or us And we will further agree that we are not only ad monished to sing but to make melody in the heart to the Lord II am cprrectwe have two facts be fore us First sing 1 seems to make melody in the heart tgthe Lord My Bro did you ever stop to think that there was a Divine as well as a human part in this melody that God accepts If X am correct would it not be fair to let God decide as to what makes the mel dy to Him see Amos 523 Take thou away trom me the noise of thy songs for I will not hear the medoly of thy viols Can we agree how one is ready to say it would be more agreeable to me and my people if the Prophet had said take away the noise of the viols for I will not hear the melody of thy songs but God has spoken and we dare not gainsay see Jer 222829 The Prophet that hath a dream let him tell a dream and he that hath my word let him speak my word faithfully Is not my word like a hammer that breaketh the rock My Iet us be careful at this point God has said What is the chaff to the wheat The Lord compares the dream or impression to the chaff and faithful to wheatandthen adds Is VWtniy word like as a fire Having the fats before us as to what makes the melBdy to God from His words we will turn to Chron 235 Moreover four thousand were porters and four thous and praised the Lord with the instruments which I made said paid We can readily agree that David not only made instruments but that he made them to praise God with But one is ready to say perhaps a whim ot his own brain for we find in Amos 65 that i chant to the sound of the viol and invent themselves instruments of music like David Can we not agree at this point Lets s e what was the purpose of Davids heart with the love of Jod permeating the soul with the hid len fire of love that quickens the whole man David could say four thousand Praises to the Lord With theinstru ments which 1 made to praise there with Yes we can agree How can we not agree seelAmos 65 Invent or make how to or for self and not God and with a heart fullof cpr ruption sin and crime whoseffingers were blackened with oppression see Amos 15 23 Takeaway the noise of thy s ngs for I will not hear the melody of thy viols For a more vivid view ot sell see 1st John 215 16 If any man loves the world the love of the Father is not in him for all that is in the world the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the pride of the life is not of the 1ather but of the world We can at a glance see the great difference between the two characters one with a heart trusting in God the ouiiwith a heart defaced and black ehed with sin but says one I am not fully settled in my mind as to Davids rightto makethose instruments but 1 m Lets hear inspiration speak see t 2nd Chron 2925 Ahaz had desecrated Gods house and after Hezakiah had fully cleansed that consecrated holy Temple andhad arrarigedthe holy ves sels in order he then set the Levites iq the house of the Lord with cymbals wijh psalteries and with harps according to the commandment of David and Gad the Kings Seer and Nathan the Prophet for so was the commandment of the Lord by the Prophets but saysone we cant object to instrumental music under the law of Moses but under Christs reign Very well lets see Zion or Sion the church as it is sometimes called Jerusalem or New Jerusalem see Isa 62 15 For Zions sake will I not hold my peace and for Jerusalems sake will not rest until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth and the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness and all Kings thy glory and thou shalt be called by a new name which the mouth of the Lord shall name Isa 6515 The Lord shall tall His servants by another name We have three facts em braced here Zion Jerusalem and his servants by another or new name Gods eternal truth has united them and we cant gainsay newj names see Acts 1126 And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch Then we have Sion Jerusalem see Heb 1222 House of God see Ps 654 and 84 in Church of God see 1st Cor 12 Christs House see Heb 36 Holy Temple in the Lord see Eph 221 a Spiritual House see Peter 25 God has affixed all of those high titles to his people the Church Thi being a settled fact we can easily agree here but one is ready to say what have these inIAnd of Zion it shall be said this and that man was born in her The Lord shall count when he writeth up the people that this man was born there inIi of truth could God have employed plainIIYworth while to squirm or twist God has spoken my word is as a hammer that breaketh the rock Continued next week KENTUCKY TATE FAIR RACES Horse racing always an attraction ala

ptomaine pot soning from eating crabs should be a warning to housekeepers and cooks as to all kinds of ptomanic dangers A ptomaine is not a microbe but is the product of a microbe as all grain alcohol is the product of fermentation caused by the yeast microbe which changes sugar into alcohol Alcohol Itself is therefore a ptomaine but as to its poisonous effects opinions will continue to differ Vinegar Is another ptomaine the product of the microbe Mycoderma acete This ptpmaine Is not dangerous when properly used But there are many dangerous pto maines the products of various putre factive microbes The microbes them selves may always be killed by boll ing but ptomaines may not be killed as boiled alcohol is still soI The only sure War says the American to prevent ptomaine poison ing in meat fish crabs or any other article of diet Is to kill the microbes and thus prevent the production of ptomaine Crabs are not healthy unless killed by severe and sudden heat as by being thrown alive into boiling water This practice appears to be cruel but it Is Just the cdntrriry as the hot water causes the crali to lose consciousness Instantly and its suffering ceases at once And any crab killed by boiling water can be eaten with perfect safety If crabs are kept six hours after boiling they should be boiled again for at least a few moments after which they may be kept safely for another six hours Then they should be boiled again for the same reason as before to prevent the production of ptomaine It is not safe to keep crabs fish meats or any other cooked articles of food longer than six or eight hours without rebelling even if kept on ice Ice retards the work of microbes but does not kill the microbe or stop his work In fact unless the greatest care Is taken by the housekeeper an ice chest may become a most dangerous incubator of microbes Water made boiling hot Is mans best defense against hi infinitesimal but ioftbn fatal enemy since no microbe can survive contact with it How to

blazed forth in big headlines the advertisement of something startlingly new you are stunned rather than interested If however for two or three days you have been looking for this announcement and each 4daygettnga little more curious about it you get your self keyed up in anticipation and then if the announce ment is even better than you had imagined you surrender in a body Dot pay the United

WALK Proper Carriage and Stride to Be Manifested Tip on Breathing Some useful directions to be follow edlln walking for health or pleasure are by Professor Richard F Nel atJcbherstuted to Country Life In America fortJuly Professor Nelllgan says that Is surprising how little is generally known abdut the proper carriage stride and breathing in this form of exercise The carriage and stride op a level country road differ of course from those tliat are best for a country and differences u build make it impossible for all to walk alike yet certain fundamental rules should be followed as far as possible These the writer proceeds to give ih brief as fol lojjvs For ordinary walking on city streets or po d level country toads the front upper ch st should be raised in order to give to the lungs and heart Per to this position of the lne with deep breathing willfUIplay formation of a most desirable will naturally assist in keeping ers in their proper place By a natural but not constrain- te4 position of the shoulders can be ac nUircd ilhe stride should be shorter and slower In long distance walking than in short lest too long arid fast a stride cause cx h ustlon and destroy both the pleasure and profit of the exercise For ordinary walking the ynilitary stride of thirty 120 paces per minute is about right for the average man and Is the re acUerobnstjride Is too short and slow and the pe S must use his own Judgment and lejarn from experience In races of from one ten miles the writer who is fiver t eleven and threefourths inches in height frequently strode three feet nine ihphes at the rate of 175 steps per minute Some writers claim that the body should bdl inclined forward even when walking on level ground for the reason that favors speed giving the Indians gaitthisI oil example Others claim that Is a series of falls from one wal1dngI other and therefore for speed Itf Is necessary to lean forward writers seem to forget that the mbmeh tujhi gained while going at the rate of miles an hour is considerable and If tithe same time the body Is inclined for ward it brings an undue strain upon them scl s which were intended to hold the body erect The best argument against this Is that the erect position favors a longer and faster stride when walking on level ground than is possible In the bent pbsltion and furthermore the upright position Is less tiring The best long and sb r distance walkers In the world with vyfew exceptions carry the body erectt The principal Reason in fayor of the urirfjjht position Professor Kelligau tells us is the lessened strain on the conIepe tq obtain the best results Bertha von Hillen the greatest woman walker was perfectly erect To quote further Th main difference between the Ions posl1HonIn walking rc nore action at the knees and less move nient at the hips and this results in a siortcr stride The knee Is slightly bent in some cases as the peel touches the ground while in others knee is bent Just after the straight leg touches the eirth Either method of bending the Knee relieves the Jar and also the nervous s rain caused by speed walking For short distances at th0 greatest pos 8 ble speed as in athletic competitions tie leg In all cases must be straight and tie knee stiff as the hedl touches the ground and the knee must remain stiff throughout the stride until the heel of t 0 following foot Is placed for the next stride There Is also a peculiar hip ac t bn known among racing men as the roll which Is very exhausting The shoulders and armfl are swung violently forward and upward and the whole gait purely artificial and tiring requires t ng practice Is not at all pleasing to witness and Is apt to degenerate Into a vry awkward run The distinction be tween Walking and running is that in walking the heel of the forward foot be placed In position before the toes ot the rear foot leave the ground while In running both feet are off the ground at the same tlme yj How to Use Turpentine When

form of Judge Newman who bustling into the room with ill his customary pompous dignity luddenly stopped in his tracks and wilted at sight of the boss Good morning Mr Horrigan said the judge ingratiatingly wriggling un lef the boss glower I hope Im not WllinIfor For your renomination queried Horrigan speaking as though to a dis graced servant If thats what youre here for you mjght have spared your self the trouble1 What I told you be fore still goes But Mr Horrigan consider how long Hve been on the bench and SAnd ts time you got your nose out 5f thefeed bag and gave some one else i

will be so grateful Well I wont detain Foil any longer Goodby Goodby judge answered WaIn tvrlght tolerantly Goodby Mr Horrigan went on Fudge Newman with effusion A grunt from Horrigan who had turned his broad back on the visitor was the only reply and the judge departed to bear the message of hope to Mrs Newman i4Have you any special objections to Newman asked Wainwrigbt4- lNo said Horrigan except I think perhaps theres men who can do better by us You know how much it means lometlmes to have the right judge ban He yburcase II think at a pinch we can manage newman and i Oh if it is a

already growing but just be tween you and me its going to be a hot fight The people at large seem to Deta little sore on the organization A few deals lately have been a little raw ind some of the papers are kicking Good Lord If it wasnt for the news papers what a cinch a boss would have In running a Cityl Itd be like taking pennies from a babys bank Bi i Then you think there is some doubt ibout the election I wouldnt go so far as that Itll bet tussle but with plenty of cash and the right man for mayorjmark me I Jay and the right nianwe ought to win The woods are full of right men replied Wainwright The money is the chief thing to consider That 5s why I asked you heretoday This is J the point Im getting at As soon as election is safely oVer the Borough Street railway will apply for a fran aenueitoyou own the City Surface line and as that is the Borough Street railways worst rival you want the Borough franchise bill killfed when it comes be fore the board of aldermen IYoure wrong To paraphrase your own words you know a lot aboutl oli tics I want the Borough Street rail ways franchise granted and I want the franchise to be perpetual IHBut I dont see what your driving oroughIStreI dont mean to merge them I own both roads and I run them sepa rately The Iyou do IThat a little surprise eh I justIBorigranting of the franchise ind the news that I control the road will work when they are made known j Sure Itll send that stock sky high Youll scoop In a million r two i1A million or two echo Wainwright scornfully Nearer fHold on interrupted I orrIgan Whats that noise He had jumped to his feet with an alacrity that was surprising in so large a man and was listening iuteni ly That clicking asked Wainwright Oh thats only the private wire in my office IJPrivate wire Any operator Of oourse Why Suppose he should happen to be listening to us Who Thompson Absurd I dont know Id rather Nonsense Its Thompson my pri rate secretary a man whos been with me nine years I trust him as But I dont I dont trust anybody Send hirn Into some other room- I cant IIi his absence some 1m portant message might come and If be wasnt here on the very moment to transmit it to me I might lose thou sands Hes all right if ever a man was I jtrust him implicitly Y VOh al riht then Go on with what you weie saying I Mat the Borough Street railway franchise made perpetual Catch my drift Sure But the papers and the prop erty holders will make a big kick Alwun Bennett uLelt them Theyll soon get hoarse and rest their throats As long as the votes what do we care if havejo agreed the boss Impa all right but what I want to know Is How does all this concern me- Horrigan 1 threw himself back in his of1hISholes and eyed his host quizzically Wainwright did not even pretend not to understand Still Instead of giving a direct answer he went on with seem ing Irrelevance I flm a public spirited citizen I be here Ivlc welfare would suffer by any change In municipal administration so to keep the present party in power I am willing to donate to It 200000 to ward election expenses That sounds pretty good as far as it goes but maybe you didnt hear some thing Tasked you a minute ago What I want to know Is How does all this concern me Im comIng to that As I said lam a public spirited citizen Im also a good friend such a good friend that Im always glad to put my friends on to anything in the market that looks particularly promising Suppose I car ry for your account at the market price thats 63 just now 15000shares of Borough Street railway stockuWell UIt that franchise Is granted Bor ough stock will go upat least 25 points withln W9 s That would clear up for you a profit of lets seeabout 375000Horrigan had pulled a pencil from his pocket and was figuring on the back of an envelope YeV he said at last thats right 375000 That would be my profit while yours would run into the mil lions Thats notwarm enough friendj ship for me Surely that is a generous Generous maybe but Id like some thing munificentsay 25000 shares at 63 Then at the 25 point jump Id makcrld make consulting hs figures on the envelope something over 600000 That sounds better to me HeiT But Mr Horrigan Youve got my terms Take em or leave em Oh very well conceded Wain wright with lame graciousness Anything to oblige an old friend Good So we get 200000 for election expenses and my personal ac count receives 25000 shares at 63 Quite so And now And now comes the question of the right man for mayor We Again Horrigan paused rising to his feet stealtLiiy like some ponderous cat his head bent slightly as though catching h faint or distant sound What the matter asked Wain wright looking up Nothing returned Horrigan But he did not resume his seat Instead as he talked he began to pace the room in apparont aimlessness yet every turn chanced to bring him nearer and near er to the door of the adjoinlngoffice You seej he said we must have Thompson stepped quietly over the threshold the right man If we dont we havent a shad ow of a show towIn We must be carcfultoc- hoose the best man possible in fact Mr Vain wrght In fact His wanderings had brought him to the office door With the last word he sud deuly jerked it open Thompson stepped quietly over the threshold Into the library walked over to his employer handed him a dispatch and went out again under the battery of Horrigans glare closing the office door after him That fellow was listening to every word we said shouted the boss as the door shut behind Thompson How foolish you are protested Wainwright He was bringing me this message Ive tried and tempted and tested Thompson in a hundred ways and hes always rung true I trust jiim utterly f Well I dont trust a man living0 retorted Horrigan reluctantly convinc ed I dout sign receipts or keep ac counts or write letters or have witnesses wheii I talk I always make It a Questioa of veracity between me and the other man If theres an investiga tion My words as good as any ones and they cant prove anything against me in case of a showdown I advise you to try the same plan Its a good one And in the meantime if I were you Id keep an eye on that secretary Hell bear watching Never mind about Thompson Hes all right Lets get back to the elec tion Who have you In mind for mayorWell considered Hqrrlgan hes got to be some one who isnt mixed up In politics or corporations Someone the public isnt on to A man with no queer past fUl advise you to consult the calen candidateCould notclearly follow his guests rea soning uNo1 think I can find him on arth laughed HorrIgan Hes got lo be young clever educated with a good name a good family and social standing and plenty of cash The cash is Important so the public will under stand he isnt a graft hunter t Theyve got to be made td think hes in the game for purity of politics and high principles and love of civic duty aucJ till that sort of thing At the same time hes got to be some one we can handle to suit ourselves Thats the mun wholl catch em coming and go Ing Weve got to find him Any sug gestions Well how about Gibbs Wont do Broker and rnoijey jug gler The public wouldnt stund for him Young Sawyerri Sawyer was born foolish and hes been getting steadily sillier every year since and his face shows It Ten Broeck then uTeri Broeck Is too fond of turning a cigarette Into the connecting link be tween fire and a fool And besides he wears a monocle Whatd happen Ifhe was to flash that monocle In a Fourth ward meeting Thered be a massa ere j Well who then Have you any one In mind 1 Yes assented Horrigan I have Do you happen to know a young tel low who spends his summers near here a chap named BennettAlwyn Ben nett Certainly I know him well BHt Well how does he strike you1 Id never have thought of him in such a connection Why wouldnt you He pretty near fulfills all our qualifications Besides his father used tobe a big man in the organization Got some fat contracts from it in his time too But young Bennett has never Hes well off well educated clever and all that I ran across him last fall when he came over tohelp Lorimer hi me ficht in the Fourteenth He made L i some rattling good speeches and the boys all took a liking to hini A swell but not a snob good mixer good tel low popular clear headed no pastes hes our man More I think It over tjhe surer I am I shouldnt wonder if youre right How would you like to talk it over with blmnow- HNow Yes Hes still around the place somewhere I think Wainwright rang a bell andvlhe butler appeared Find Mr Bennett said the finan cIer atid ask hIm It he will step here for a moment Yes went on Horrigan reflectively rubbing his huge plump hands together hes the man for usthat Is he added with less assurance uif we can handle him I think we can answered Wain wright a fragment of his conversation with Qlbbs flashing across his mem oryhYou see I have fairly good rea sons for believing hes in love with my niece Miss Dallas Wainwright So Thats And as I control her fortune and her brothers until Perry is twenty five Oh its a cinch chuckled Horn gan He Mr Bennett Is playing tennis reported the butler coming to the door He will be here atonce Now resumed Horrigan the only thing that remains is to find out if hell consent and then You jvanted me Mr Wainwright asked Bennett stepping thrpugh the long window from the erundauOh good morning Mr Horrigan he added on seeing the second occupant of the roomThe young man was coatiess and col larless his sill shirt being turned in at the neck In one hand he swung a ten nis racket With the other he mopped his flushed face for the day was hot and the game had been swift Yes answered Wainwright Im sorry to interrupt your tennis set but we want to see you on a rather important matter Weve been talking about you V t Thanks said Bennett with a puzzled smile from one to the other of the two older men What about Want to be mayor queried HOrn gan abruptly Whats the answer countered the perplexed youth UIt isnt a joke intervened Wain wright Mr Horrigan is in earnest In earnest I hope the heat hasnt gone to his head You dont understand put In Hor rigan I control the partys nomina lions The nomination for mayor is yours if youll like it Not not really gasped Alwyn aghast Yes really We But with a whole organization full of good material why do you come tome Because youre the man we want JAs an answer thats excellent but as an explanation its mystifying Ill tell you Were lOoking forward to a risky fight and And since you see no chance of winning you pick me out as the victim instead of some organization man Good Idea as far as youre concerned but I beg to decline without thanks No no corrected Wainwright Mr Horrigan thinks that you have a strong chance of winning Thats right corroborated the boss Itll be a hard fight but with the right man well win and we believe youre the right man Even If you lose youll show the world what youre made of Folks admire a fighter They havent much use for an idler The coarsely spoken words brought back with a rush Dallas Walnwrights plea and his own yearning to do some thing to make her proud of himto win her by great deedsto prove his love worth her acceptance Was this the chance the chance he had so eager ly longed for It seemed providential His face alight with the joy of battle and the hope of his hearts reward Bennett turned upon the waiting boss I accept Good yelled Horrigan slapping him resoundingly on the back Good bby Now well But remember one thing Mr Horrigan Interrupted BQn nett and his careless boy hood seemed to have fallen away from him like n discarded garment leav lug the man hood and rug ged strength stripped 01 all IHis careless boyhood seemed to havcfnll en away from him the follies and Idleness that had hitherto masked it remember one thing it I win this fight If 1 am elected mayor I shall never once swerve from my solemn oath of office I Waluwright uneasy at the candi dates unwonted words and jmanner started to speak but Horrigan deftly interfered Of course youll keep your oath of office he bellowed jovially Of course you will Thats understood Then In an undertone to Wainwright as Alwyn moved away the boss whis pered Dont butt In Leave him to me Thatsllly reform talk dont mean any thing Its the way all youngsters In politics blow oil steam Leave him tome

ofjso apt as to turn the laugh on his torr symjpathAt last election day came and went falrmajorIEven his severest critics in the organ thatBe9nett tl party from severe defeat Horrigans judgment and choice of men for thea thousandth time in the boss crooked political career was vindicated and Horrigan himself was verjoyed beyond measure Nor did the fact that he had failed to oust Alderman Phe Ian in the primaries wholly cloud the boss d JightIThere was however a slight clou E WalnI Dallas had gone with an aunt on an eight months tour of Europe and the Mediterranean But Perry who at her secret request had kept her posted oos every detail of the stirring campaign cabled her the result on election night and the following day a reply mes sage of congratulation crossed the At lantie to gladden Alisjyns heart fIn a letter that followed a week lqte las asked the first political favor the future mayor was called upon to grant She begged that In his office Bennett would try to find a place for Cynthi0 Garrison in consequence of which when the young man made up his list of personal appointments Miss Garri son found herself listed as assistant private secretary at a decidedly com fortable salary It was while she was working in that capacity in the mayors private room in the city hall during Bennetts lunch hour one day in midwinter that her solitude was broken by the entrance of a visitor Perry Wainwright redolent of band- boX and soap as ever found hi way past the doorkeeper and burst into the sanctum Hello was his greeting HiS honor isnt around uNo answered Cynthia demurely looking UR from her work with the most businesslike air she could as sume lies out at lunch I knew he would be grinned Per ryeUI timed it fine dldntl If you knew he was out whydldl you come she asked severely You know I never receive callers during business hours It you didnVcome to see Mr Bennett But I did Honest I did r have a message for him awfully Important He mustnt miss it Perhaps youll leave It witl1me1i can + No its got an answer to it Itt have Ito wait I suppose He sat down uninvited with an air of mk resignation that was too much for Cynthias gravity f Perry Wainwright ske exclaimed in exasperation how often am lito tell ou you mustnt bother me herein office hours Ndw youve hurt my feelings an convictionIprove you peac offering See Your old Boston terriers Betty and Prince Charlie ancfc me holding them And he laid before her a photograph She aught it up with a little cry or pleasure Oh the beauties she exclaimed Wp do look well In that pose5 he admitted modestly II was speaking of the dogs she reproved him with lofty scorn But Im in the picture too he explained Im the one with the baton And Thank you so much for the picture I shall keep it always Theyre the nicest dogs I ever had Im nice too llt Isnt my fault Im not a dog I i told you once before not to give up hope Youll grow I I told that to some fellows at the club and we tried to figure It out and we decided you were guying me What clever men you must be at that club Are you going tbfthe ad ministratlon ball next week Are you Why Because thats the answer Ive never been to an administration ball but if your there I guess ltrDont be s1lyThe administration ball Is a very great function Indeed Ive been asking questions about it Not only every one connected with the administration goes but all sorts of capitalists and other people like that Ive heard that some of the biggest financial deals are arranged during that haiL Isnt it queer Not especially Theres a deal Im thinking of putting throagh myself that night if I dont get a good chance earliera deal that ta1a lot toime Then why wait till the ball Why not 7f j f I l r- T 4t r t THE SPRINGFIELD SUN WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 2 1908s i mighttWhat a worker Mr Bennett is r broke In Cynthia turning very pink LIndhastening to change the subject uIn the old days we thought he was the soul of laziness but now hes working here night and day Hes not only the youngestmayor this city ever bad but I think hes the busiest too He The eulogy on the new mayor was cut short by that dignitarys appear- Ance from the center room AS Alwyn paused to hang up his coat and hat and pull off his gloves Cynthia bent once more over her work while Perry straightened up and tried to ook as though he really had business of presS lug importance with his honor t The months had brought changes to Bennett There were care lines on his face and his eyes were tired A few SIlver strands too had crept into the darker hair on his temples There was little now about him to suggest the Idler Well old man he exclaimed on seeing Perry whats the excuse this time1 The what asked the youth un xeasily The excuse You come here when Im likely to be outabout four tunes i week and always with a perfectly new excuse for your intrusion I tol erate you for the originality of those excuses What Is todays I have no need of an excuse re plied Perry with an air of hurt dug nlqcIamthebearer of a most Im portant message to you From whom I Fromfrom Dallas home land ed this morning A light came into the mayors tired eyes at the news tAnd the message he asked ea gery J Thats the message Shes home She sent you to tell pIe thai No not exactly that evaded Per ry wriggling uncomfortably Well whatwas her message then ASheshe didnt send any Then who sent the message that she has come home Well the fact is I sent it myself Thats why I brought it Oh you popr Idiotr laughed Ben nettuThe same excuse in a new ahape Well now youre here you can stay just five minutes t Im too busy to play with little boys today Little boys Ill be twentytwo next apring F Any messages while I was out Miss Garrison Yes one answered Cynthia Your mother telephoned that she would be laere at half past 2 She said she had a surprise for you Say remarked Perry feeling he was being excluded from the talk Id go easy on that surprise if I were you Alwyn Ive had surprises over the telephone thyself and theyre punk Once a girl- 4Aldorman Phelan would like to speak to your honor said Ingram the old doorkeeper popping out of V anteroom theI Show him In answered Now then Perry Were i you about to ask me to stay awhile longer asked the boy Be cause Im sorry but I cant Goodby Good afternoon Miss Garrison Glad you liked the photo So long Maybe Ill bring another message from Dallas tomorrow What can Phelan want of me I wonder mused Bennett half aloud He and I scarcely Good afternoon alderman I think this is the first time youve honored me with a visit Then be lenient with a firstoffense Your honor suggested Phelan shak- Ing hands with the mayor anda pleasantly to Cynthia as she passedI out to her own office Something important I4 suppose hazarded Bennett uMaybe It Is Important and maybe it isnt retuned Phelan It all depends on whether that was a true story in the Chronicle today about your veto Ing the Borough Streetrailway bill If youve really vetoed that bill air Ill lave to do Is tojsny Sorry I cant stay longer and get put uNo said Bennett that announce ment wasnt authorized I havent vetoed the Borough Street railway bill I In fact I havent mage public any de- cision on it Why t Im glad to hear It and that being- S e ease Ill invite myself to a seat and stay awhile Say your hpnor on the level that Borough bill was the raw st thing that ever came across Gee but they did their work with a meat ax Thenyou werent one of the alder men who voted for it UMe Nothing doing I dont belong- to Dick Hofrigans solid thirteen lln cant buy and sell me at his own geezersr And yet alderman from your rep utation From my reputation Ima crook ey Well theres cr mand crooks And Im one of the other kind If Im crooked at all which I deny most en thooslastlcally At least I follow n Horrlgan whistfe Then why are you here in regard to the Borough Perhaps ts on the theory of set a thief to catch a thief Well laughed Bennett mused in spite of himself by the alderman V frankness at least you call a spade a spade fItsure dont refer to it vague bpt as a utensil You dont need any foot note explanations in one syllable when Jimmy Phe ms talking Every move- a picture If I hadnt been through the frame from shuffle to cash In would I be wise to what the HorrIgan- crowfI Is framing up on you now done some raw work Iq my lime but this Borough business is the coarsest yet They must think youre 1t original Mr Good Thins j 3S You speak as if I were to be made responsible for And aint you cried Phelan Sure you are When the people get wise to what theyrfe up against and cam mence to do their scream will they remember that Soandso framed the bill and that such and such aldermen voted for it Not them What the public Will remember Is that you signed It Itl go screechlu down the corridors of time as the iniquitous Borough franchise bill that Bennett signed Catch the idea Yes sold Bennett grlIplyiI un derstand But what I dont see is why ou should have taken the trouble to come here and Warn me of this Youve never shown any special fond riess for me hitherto Thats right But Ive shown bunches of unfondness for Chesty Dick Horrlgan Uid HorrIgans the man whos rushing the Borough bill through Lord what i bill Its so crooked that if it was la out like a street the man who tried to walk along itwould meet himself coming lack Why your hon or I Mr Wain wright your Honor said Ingram at thedoor says he wont de tain you long Let him in If iou like suggested PhetanJcanvalt Shall I go into the other No Walt here If you choose His business isnt likely to be private Im sorry to break in pn your rush hours said Wainwrlght as he ad vanced to greet the mayor I wont keep you long Good afternoon alder man Howdy returned Phelan walking over to the far end of the office where by falling Into deep and admiring study of a particularly atrocious port trait of some earlier mayor he denoted that he was temporarily out of the conversation Ill cometo the point at once Mr Bennett began Wainwrlght I called to see you about the Borough Street railway bil- lThats an odd coincidence answer youlupof It What do you think of the measure What does he think of it mutter ed Phelan addressing the portrait in an aside that was perfectly audible What does he think ofIt And him ownin the rival road Oh easy Ask him a real hard one Youre mistaken alderman returned WainwrIght blandly uI am in dined to favor the passage of the Borough bill Phelan shot one keen glance of In credulity at the financier then wheeled about and resumed his rapt study of the portrait Yes continued Wainwright I ad mit that my City Surface line is inaIway the rival of the Borough Street railway but in a big city like this theres surely room for both lines toI carry on a prosperous business so should they try to injure each other CWhyoh why echoed Phelan IIIWainwright paid no heed to the In terpolation but went on Of course the franchise will be a good thing for the Borough road but It neednt hurt the City Surface line Besides the passing dftlie bill made Borough stock rise from 63 to 81 Then when that unauthorized announcement was made today that your honor WOU1 veto it the stoOk tumbled from 81 tq 73 Just see what power rests wltti you Mr Bennett If you should verj Ulli be hcqrln harps next said Phelan the bill tbe Borough stock will srump to almost nothingL Think will mean to Fwidows and or phans and all sorts of Jooi people who tIm1stock Ill be iicarj in horns roanIcdwonder Has the poor dear man got swellln of the heart or is lie maybe th advance agent of the millennium To think of old Tightwad Waln wright Ingram fprestalled any reply from the financier by entering with the tid ings that Thompson was in the ante room with an Important message for Wainwright May 1 see him in here asked the visitor It Is my private secretary and CertainlyV asserted Bennett tShow him in Ingram Id like to see a private secretary of mine tome buttln in like this con fided Phelan to the picture Id chase him so far hed discover 1ncw street Id The alderman broke off short HIs eye had frllcn on Thompson as the latter entered Phelan stood rigid with mouth open and eyes bulging taking Jn every detail of the quiet pallid young mans appearance The secretary meanwhile had gone up to Wainwright and begun to deliver his message = ul1r Horrlgan called you up slru said he Just a minute or so after you left the office He wIshes you to come and see him Immediately If possible All right answered the financier Ill come at once Im sorry your honor that I am called away just now for Id like to discuss this Borough bill further with you But wLfot I wished to express can be said In a nutshell If I who own the rival road am In favor of granting the Borough fran chise I caht see why one else should object to ItCome on Thomp son Good day your honor Good day alderman u 5 J The financier passed rout Thompson was following when Phelan who had never once removed hubeyes from the secretary stepped in f t of him Well young man he surprise Well sir said Thton in mild You remember me I donH think so sir Huh Thats queerl Im Alderman Phelan of the Eighth Ive read about you of course sir but I But you dont know me Never met ne bfOreSIm sorry sir but I cant recall it f I did Good day sir The secretary hurried out after his employer Phelan with a puzzled shake of the head seemed trying to solve some elusive problem But Bennett who had not noted the bref scene between Thompson and the alderman broke in on the latters musings with the mk You appeared to be amazed at Mr Walnwrights attitude toward the Borough Street railway franchise Amazed Is a mild gentle word for my feeling declared the alderman uTohear that old flint heart prattlin about widows and orphans and fair play why say your honor I knOw Charles WainwrIght from way back and I tell you he has the same affec tion for the money of widows and orphans tunt a tomcat has tor a canary As for fair play he wouldnt recognize It if he tyas to hear It through a mega phone Hes up to something I dont know just what But Ill Come come remonstrated Bennett good humoredly Im sure you do Wainwrifcht an injustice He Hes a fine old bird Do you chance to remeifaber the Garrison case nine years back 1 President Garrison of the Israel Putnam Trust company Who shot himself after being ruined by a financier who was his dearest friend Yes What has that to do with jWith Wainwrlght 9b nothin much Only Wainwright happened to be the financier UNo You must be mistaken IAm I I ought to know something it I was thechief of police at the time and handled the case It was I who suppressed Wainwrights name For a small consideration 1 Wainwright gasped Bennett Of all men But So ypu see why I coppered the mercy and fair play cards when he dealt em just now purred Phelau Theres something big behind this talk of his in favor of the Borough bill Wasnt it at his house last summer that Horrigan offered you the nomi nation Thats the story and Yes On the 25th of July He The 25th of July hey That was the day he had me out there The diy wayjfirm thats buyin all that Borough stock Theyve been buyln It up on the quiet r

of the reatiealuc of a mauls and a wo mans cfpinion of women It wajp about a week later that Aus tin Hainrnoncl received an invitation from one of the partyinformally for a game of yhist He met there a widow Mrs ph6ever somewhere between twentyftwo and twentyfive years old She wJ3s modest and shy almost to timidity Nevertheless there was som- ethhiglbout her that grew upon Ham was not her conversation not a talker It might have een her eyes set In a small oval shaped head At any rate there was something away dowq in those eyes ti excite a mans fancy and set him wondering About what Hammond it least dfdnt know but he wondered tail jthe same Hammqnd asked permission toonll and becau e ai frequent visitor at her home a suit of iipartments In which she lived with fa servant He took her out oc cnsioi ally either to drive or to places of an usciment and it was not long before his friends began to speculate upon a probable engagement One morn ng 1h was surprised to receive a note rOn the lady who introduced him 10 Mrs Qherver in which she said sub stantially that having heard of his at tentins she wished to disclaim nny Inteution to recommend the lady she had introduced as a suitable person for him towarrv If he made a match with Mrs Cheever he must do so on his onn responsibility Hammond was surprised Later on he received a second note from another of the ladies he had met at tie dinner party This note was a positIve j warning against Mrs Chee ver Hammond kept the note a secret for two days then showed It to the worn in lit condemned She looked troubleI but told a very straight story which agreed especially with Ham monds opinions In matters between women She said that she bad robbed the TIter of a lover Hnimmond at last found the young widdw so necessary to him that he asked her to be his wife She declined at first giving as n reason that she would bring him nothing Indeed could not mafce oven a respectable show at the wedding Hammond told her that he
