New York Dec lj Even more sensational than the tumultuous close of the recent National league playing season were the closing hours of the leagues annual meeting when charges of attempted bribery of umpires who officiated at the game that decided the championship of 1908 between New York and Chicago at the Polo grounds Oct 8 were sprung and the magnates appointed a committee to probe them even in timating that criminal prosecutions might follow the investigating com mittees report President Pulliam in presenting the charges stated that Umpires Klem and Johnston who officiated at the game in question had made a signed statement that an effort had been made to bribe them with respect to their duties pertaining to that contest In one of these state ments the name of the person who approached the umpire was given as well as the names of persons he claimed to represent In the other statements the names of the persons who approached the umpire were not given this umpire stating that they were strangers to him Will Not Recognize Simon Washington Dec tJAt a recent meeting of the diplomatic corps at Port au Prince Haiti the decision was reached that it was not oppor tune at this time to have the governments represented formally recognize the administration of General Simon for the reason that this action perhaps would give him an advantage over his competitors in the

that the only hope for 4 the Democratic party is in the tariffs Tlie following were the questions submitted Should an effort afcjonce be made to put the organization of the party 1Ijn abler hands I With the whole question of tariff r x revision certain to come up in Con gress not later than March should r not special zeal be shown in uniting t the Democratic minority for a vig broiis fight in defense of the low tariff views of the party Could t there be a better way of preparing x for the congressional elections of 1910 J In what way can the election of i Democratic Governors in Ohio In 1dianaand Minnesota be utilized to t infuse new spirit into the party and show it how to win popular support j What other suggestions can be fmade as both true lessons of the de constructivesi plan that shall complete success jv The answers have been varied They are mostly a groping in the lark Here is what a Democratic l editor of Central Kentucky thinks Desha Breckinridge president of f f4he Lexington Ky HeraldIn my judgment the first requisite is for the Democratic members of Congress V to make the tariff the one issue up on which they concentrate their acr tivity and to which they devote theirf efforts In my opinion there isno VBope of the Democratic party win v ringa national victory upon any other issue Guarantee of bank deppsits condemnation of the foreign policy of c the

and the honest administration of the Government t f the issue and cannot win upon any f other issue The whole party organization ought to be changed Mr Bryan r lip was nominated for President hot because a majority of the Democrat ic party was for him but because he vnd his friends had control of the I f a l r s I r party orgknizamon and Democrats tlpuhgout the country who wished either to maintain dr to secure con trot of the party organization in va- riouS Stateshad to support him to do so He must be eliminated fromJ leadership of the party t If he himself will aid in developing arid strengthening such maIas Johnson Marshall and Harmon so that by 1912 the country may have the opportunity of selecting some man who had demonstrated his qual ities of leadership ins State affairs and so won the confidence of the people we can win that election If he continues his past policy of attempting to destroy every man who tippearswho is not subservient to his ambition it may be within his power Jo prevent the election of any Dem- t Ja ti Mr Bredkinridge believes in male jug the tariff the one issue The query noiv is whether it is not too late The party abandoned the tariff issue after having won a national election on it and since that time has been following after strange gods Now the Republican party proposes to revise the tariff and according to President Taft the revision wof the schedules are to be thoroughand hone t If this be done at the extra session next yQar the Democrats will be again groping for an issue We believe that if the Democratic party had stood faithfully for tariff re form tvelve years ago it would now be in control of the national govern ilent Mr Martin W Littleton who nominated Parker in the St Louis con eiition and who is a leading New York Democrat thinks that Sooner or later this country is to have a real ampaign and the question will then be Socialism as opposed vto indi = vidualism The Socialists this year had almost one million voters j they believe in what they advocate and then political faith is with thema sort cf religion They have enough ardor for their cause to carry them a long way I think that if the Dem b jrtlic party would prepare itself to meet the anarchy of unbridled wealth and the socialism of thriftless pov erty by standing not in favor of popular Democracy but by taking a stand upon the principles ofa rep resentative republic from which bothparties have gone in tlleir ef fort to get away from Socialism if the Democratic party should do this I say then they would be in a position to win the respect and trust of the people In the last few years the cam pains have been exhibitions of platform snatching and both have snatched ina modicum of Socialism just enough as they think to win approval Whenever politics and Pros idential campaigns in particular hinge upon the race to have the con vention before the other party and so to take the best policies to be had without much reference to any clear cut principle the second party comes and sets up the first platform as a straw man to knock down and there are the national issues The result of this is that although we despise t he Socialists we are bound to re ciject them for their complete prop itibn to run the administration of the country But issues are not made to order by party leaders They arise as the needs of the country calls There must be two great parties in the field The partyof opposition must be strong enough to keep in check the tendencies of a dominant and suc cessful majority to disregard the wishes of the peo le and to be care less in the administration of the af lairs of the nation The great Republican leaders Roosevelt and Taft have headed a reform in the Republican organiza tion They have succeeded so far in keeping control of the party machinery It remains to be seen whether their influence will be strong enough to wrest the party from its old position of friendship for predatory wealth The hopes of Democracy is that Harmon and Marshall and Johnson and men of their ilk will be great enoughand strong enough to grasp the national problems as they may arise and lead their party to take the right position on those issues But r I J 4Wr i 3Sr t t P Ti 4dno cbldrblorod di suggestions as to the proper party position dan m21ke issues that will succ ssivilly appeal to the American people Those

holiday work of the session during the presv ent week The date of the adjourn ment for the holidays has not yet been definitely determined tout prob ably it will fall on the 21st inst In that event it is not expected that any business would be done on Monday week because between the dates some of the new members will leave for their homes and in such numbers that it would be impossible to main tain a quorum it is expected that both houses will deal during the week with the ques tion of the paragraph in the presi dents message relating to the secret service The Perkins committee probably will present its report to the house early in the week and in case a resolution dealing with the subject is recommended it will be acted upon before the dispersal of the house for the holidays The present program in the senate so far as the senate has a program is to have introduced a resolution similar to that passed by the house which author ized a committee to deal with the question and report back

sensitive than women Of course they are What ii foolish question It is demonstrated every day all over the tforld and in a hundred different ways And th from youthup in either sex Is there anything on earth for instant more sensitive more delicateminded than a wet bred publicschool boy of 14 Compare him with his shy reticence his curious sensitiveness his innate modesty1 with a girl of the same class of life and the same age Nor is the superior sensitiveness of man in any way a reflection on his manhood A womans lack of sensitiveness is due often to in nate obtuseness and phlegmatic stolidity character A mans sensitiveness is a part of his finer organization which rende his power of perception infinitely keener and more subtle than in t case of the majority of women to whom the changes andchances of th mortal life come without mystery and depart without reflection on theitasI part No wonder that Mahomet declared that woman was without a soul Let us thank God all the more for her charming body At the same time feminine stolidity probably comes as a protection anda benefaction to women in the somewhat arduous role they are called upon to play through life It has been well said that no man could ever go through the terrors of childbirth and any ridingmaster will tell you that women funk far less than men as 1i rule That may be partly owing to the fact that they have less imagination and therefore less fear of making themselves ridiculous No man for instance couldever dulge in the vagaries of the modern suffragette His sense of humor preserve him from so undignified career in much the same way th his infinitely superior sense of honor renders awomans petty meanness incomprehensible and impossible to him Partly because the mans mind is essentially more refined his appreciation of what isrefined is far keener immeasurably more delicate In social distinctions for instance a woman will frequently be more imL posedupon by axfiashy exterior than will a man who mows intuitively when he is in the presence of a highly bred man A woman however ire11Thebred herself frequently does not A mans sympathy andienderness of heart is often more easily arouse- than a womans As a striking instance of this Harry De Wintft thearewellknown explorer told me once that Tie traveled for a thousand miles over the snowy steppes of Siberia with a convoy of political exiles of both sexes and he frequently saw men after hearing anN air sung which reminded them of their faroff Russian homes burst into uncontrollable sobbing while the women would stolidly impassivelyand complacently continue munching their kalatchi or small loaves of breadutterly iinim pressed and unappealed to by the poignant pathos Of the moment And yet who after all would have a

Lat timer and Eppner were busy and had hopes Where is it now l asked Sixtynine and a half I meditated an instant whether to use my authority to throw another 5000 shares on the market But I caught sight of Decker opposite pale hawklike just seizing an envelope from a messenger He tore it open and though his face changed not a line I felt by a mysterious instinct that it brought assurance of the aid he sought Buy every share you can get I said promptly Dont get in the way of Lattimer or Eppner Put on steam tOO A moment later the clamor grew louder and the excitement increased I heard shd ts Of 75 78 80 and 85 Deckers men had entered into the bidding with energy The sinews of war had been recruited and it was a battle for the possession of every block of stock Thus far I had followed closely the plan laid down for me by Doddridge Knapp and the course of the market had agreed with the outlines of his prophecy But now it was going up faster than he had expected Yet I could do nothing but buy I dared not set bounds to the bidding I could only grip the railing and wait for the end of the call At last it came and Omega one hundred and five and threequarters was the closing quotation I feverish ly took the totals Qf my purchases from the brokers and gave the checks to bind them Then I hastily made my way through the excited throngs that blocked the entrance to the Ex

in the lock and he entered with a calm smile on his face I gave him my memoranda and tried to read his face as he studied them r You did a good job with Crown Dia mond he grunted approvingy Thanks I

pretty fast The King of the Street looked sour ly at the figures before himYouought to have got more stock he growled This was a shock to my selfcon gratulation over my success and I gave an inquiring

you will though I have a scheme that may bring a reaction Doddridge Knapps scheme for a reaction must have been one of the kind that goes off backward for Omega jumped skyward on the afternoon call and closed at 130 And I had been able to get a scant 1500 shares when the call was over- I did better than you said Dodd ridge Knapp when I explained to him the course of the session I found a nest of

happy collaboration of two Frenchmen M Pierre CarrierBel leuse the painterand M Gregoire Cal vet equally celebrated as a sculptor Together these two artists have spent three years In designing and

of the dance when the little figure the gauzy skirts the graceful limbs the expression of the Irresistible countenance gill combine to define an emotion that is captivating The graceful abandon of the figures and the management of the ballet skirts convey a wonder sense of motion The figures seem almost to skip on toe tips to whirl about to fly so painstaking yet apparently careless have the artists been with their detail The material of these joyous little statuettes is biscuit de Sevres The models are executed for the art mar ket at the French national factory at Sevres Probably no

Winter Will Give You Stronger Colony in Spring The bees have been but littlp trouble to you so far and will be but little more yet they do require some atten tion and In the spring when other work claims your attention is the time when they are most likely to be neglected At the present time about the only thing to do is to look Into them occasionally and see that they have plenty of winetr stores and that he mice and moths are not molesting them Get the hives ready for spring occu pancy when swarming begins If you wait till the bees are swarming there will not be time to make preparations Clean all frames and sections by heating a case knife and scraping propylus and comb away This is good weath er for that you can sit near the stove and keep the knife warm If any of the colonies need feeding thick sirup of granulated sugar is about the best that can be fed to them unless you have extracted honey recommends Farmers Voice Some form of feeder is best but in want of these it will be satisfactory to place the sirup in a shallow pan and set on top of the frames It is not so easy to feed in an old box hive but where thereare holes in the top for putting a cap on the sirup may be set on the holes opened and a box set over it or the sirup may be placed under the hive on the bottom board Renewing Nests To keep the fowls free from disease and lice including mites it Is necessary to keep all about them in a state of as perfect cleanliness as pos sible Renewing the nests will great ly help and this should be done oft ener than it is A barrel of cut straw at hand

COWS NEED PHOSPHATE An Experience That Has Raised a New Query During the past summer we have treated the growing heap of manure in our barn yard every two weeks to a sprinkling of ground phosphate rock or floats Some of the ground rock was scattered on the ground next to the barnyard fence away from the manure We noticed the cows were eagerly gnawing away at the ground and thought first some salt had been scattered there Examination proved however that they were licking up the phosphate rock doing so very greedilyNow here is a new question The oows are fairly wild for the phosphate rock Why Is it that they feel the need of this form of phosphorus We wonder if any of our brother dairymen have ever discovered the same thing In their cows We had before discovered that p gs will eat the ground rock greedily if they can get it Phos phorus is very essential to a certain extent in the animal economy We would like very much to hear from some of our experiment stations or from individual dairymen if they have had experience in this line says Hoards Dairyman The experi ment made with pigs by the Wiscon sin experiment station in feeding one lot with a certain allowance of phos phate and denying it entirely to an other lot convinced us that there is something valuable for all feeders to learn in this direction DAIRY DOTS AND DASHES rOn most American farms It is not necessary to keep the cows in crowd ed quarters yet five often see small dairy barns on big farms and the cows crowded close together The prejudice in favor of beefy cows is still a great obstacle in the way of the progress of dairying It Is easier to keep a big barnyard clean than it isa small one The best buttermakers say never- to pour water on butter when washing it but around it then move the but ter in the

advisability of an Operation pfoundwill perform it atBerlin During his stay in this city Castro hishotelment to newspaper men except through some member of his suite On the train however he accorded an interview to a representative of the Temps saying that as he was leaving France he felt at liberty to receive a journalist Tile interview while guarded fully confirms the representations made by Castro at San tauder to the effect that he was desirous of settling Venezuelas out standing diplomatic differences and so far as France is concerned had al rsady made the first step in that direction
