the Mine Workers of America appeared on the stage at Tomlinson hall the thirteen hundred delegates went wild with enthusiasm There was a storm of cheers and many of the delegates wept from intense emotion Seldom has such a scene been witnessed in a convention and John Mitchell was made the hero of the largest labor organization in the world Mr Mitchell who was deeply moved came forward to the edge of the platform and said I feel keenly sensitive to the reception which you have given me this day It would seem that at least in a miners con vention a former leader of working people loses none of his luster be cause he is sentenced to jail He was interrupted by another thunderous burst of applause When the tumult had subsided AIr Mitch ell began a long speech dealing with the condition of the organization but principally with what the sentence to jail imposed upon him Samuel Gom pers and Frank Morrison by Judge of the District of Columbia and his conception of its significance to the cause of organized labor and the freedom of speech His address frequently was broken by shouts of applause from his audience which hung intent upon every word Mr Mitchell pictured what he con sidered the injustice of a system by which the constitutional rights of free speech and a free press were denied and bfwhich men could be deprived of their liberty without a trial by jury He repudiated nothing that he Had said or written in his book in the past concerning the duty of resistence of any order unjustly depriving people of these constitu tional rights He denied the charges made that laboring men wish special privileges under the law but he declared that they do wish rights guaranteed by the constitution to all men He that no one decried law vio lation more than he himself He said the Wright decision only emphasized the need of legislation that will secure to every citizen the right of trial by jury before being sent to jail P J McLester a delegate from Springfield moved that a petition be prepared addressed to President Roosevelt and protesting against the Wright decision It is to be signed by every delegate and officer in the conventionThe 1 tlon voted 2500 for the defense of Messrs Gompers Mitchell and Morrison and specified that fur ther financial aid would be given if Gompers sent the following message to the convention Please convey to the delegates greetings and best wishes for a most theItime that tries mens souls Now is the time to more thoroughly organize and solidify the ranks of labor Stand true for the cause of justice and hu man freedom SEND CHEERING MESSAGE Mine Workers Tell Gompers to Stay In the Game Washington Jan 23Stay in the game flashed the United Mine Work ers of America in a message from Indianapolis to President Gompers of the American Federation of Labor The message referred to the fight of the Federation of Labor officials in the Bucks Stove and Range company contempt case in which an appeal Is now pending before the District of Columbia court of appeals from the sentences imposed on Messrs Gom pers Mitchell and Morrison by Jus tice Wright of the District supreme court The telegram read Thirteen hundred and fifty delegates attending the thirtieth annual convention extend fraternal greet ings appropriated 2500 for present needs and instructed the executive board to furnish more when needed Stay in the game Three hundred thousand black diamond artists are with you In this fight to a finish to determine our legal rights LEWIS MAKES STATEMENT Will Recommend Joint Conference With Pennsylvania Operators Indianapolis Ind

program for the fiscal year 1910 was adopted by the house of representa tives and the naval appropriation bill was passed The opponents of the navy increase feature of the bill found themselves in a hopeless minority The only vital alteration made in the measure was the striking out of the provision restoring marines to naval vessels The aggregate amount appropriated by the bill is 135000000- As has been the case in the past the increase in the naval estimate gave rise to extended and heated debate in which members were accorded an opportunity to air their views of the Japanese question The peaet advocates were much in evidence lit opposition to such increase while the adherents of the proposition were alive at all times to every move made to cut down the number of vessels authorized Calling attention to what he said was the alarming increase in the naval expenditures Mr Burton In opposing the naval increase inquired What nation on earth is threatening us1 The periodical war scare he declared occurred whenever the naval bill was up for consideration One time he said it Is Japan and the next time some other nation and they will pass away like phantoms of the air- That which the present congress should do he contended was to pro vide for the rational needs of the people and not to guard against groundless fears of phantoms of then imagination The United States he said may trust the traditional friend ship of Ja an we may trust the fact that she is in no condition from apt economic standpoint to wage war with a great nation we may trust thatshe will not engage in an aggressive movement which Is unjustifiable against a powerful nation of the Cau casian race After admitting the possible evil effects of race prejudice he declared that all influences pointed to the morning dawn of peace and accord Continuing he declared that no great contention of the United States had ever been accomplished by sr great navy He instanced the securing of the open door in China which he said would have been menaced by qrientThe ton said could not go on in this road rush for naval expansion The burden he declared if not already In tolerable would be so in a very few years He urged that the United States take the lead in keeping down armamentsAn by Mr Bacon Ark providing for one battleship was defeated 80 to 160as was also an identical one offered later by Mr Burton Othe

INTER A TIONAL HIGHWAY CONGRESS wardness of our own country In almost every phase of rod construction and maintenance Widely differing conditions render comparisons difficult yet a study of the roads of these countries the high state of intensive agriculture noted everywhere with the resultant beauty of the surrounding landscape proves most interesting and instructive They jfumish a lesson which America cannot afford to ignore The law of gravitation is universal The question of gradient applies alike to every road in every country The traffic to be handled differing as It does in quantity and character de mands a way over which it can be moved To do this at a minimum of cost considering both the surface of the road and the means of conveyance isthe problem The road must be dif ferentJy adapted to meet varying con ditions In other words the traffic must be suited to the road or the road tq the traffic- 4Experlence and observation are the est teachers In the opinion of those whose views are herein expressed the attention of the American public should be directed primarily to three things in road construction namely FirstThe selection of the route should be mado with reference to gradient align ment character of soil drainage and gen era adaptability for road purposes SecondIn construction the character Of the traffic to be borne the accessibility and cost of material should be care fully studied The road best suited for horses differs In character from that best adapted to motor vehicles and wherever possible different ways should be provid- edJ for different kinds of traffic on the same route In America where for years to cqmo earth roads will form a large proportion of our highways much future expense may be saved by planning these ways so that when a portion of the road Is metaled an earth road may still belied at one side thus relieving the metal surface of considerable traffic during cer tain Seasons of the year urhirdToo much stress cannot be laid on the importance oE the proper maintenance of our highways No road Is ever finished Traffic begins to pound and wear away a road before construction is completed Maintenance must begin on the very day the road is opened for traffic and continue without ceasing throughout the years to come Two of the best specimens of roads seen were in England In the vicinity r Nottingham we passed for more than a hundred miles over roads built by E Purnell Hooley which were as nearly perfect as it seems possible to make them In the environs of Lon don we rode for an equal distance over roads which were well built the surface of which had been treated under the direction of Sir Herbert Pread All of these roads carried heavy traf fic Including automobiles and traction engines yet they were perfectly smooth and free from dust They exemplified in a startling degree the effect of careful construction and con stant maintenance where a stitch In time saves nine as opposed to the laissez falre of some of the leading i thordp asadeli as around the French capital The first International road con goodtwhich will be held In Brussels two years hence promises greater things 08Danger In Dust

Little Briton Be Able to Maintain His Speed For Full Marathon Distance Old Marks Are Sure to Be Shattered on Jan 26 Can Alfred Shrubb the great Eng lish professional runner retain his phenomenal speed for the full Mara thon distance 2G miles 385 yards This is the question followers of dis tance running throughout the country are debating in view of the match be tween Shrubb and Tom Longboat the Indian at Madison Square Garden New York Jan 26 Shrubb is best at five ten or fifteen miles Can he get far enough ahead of Longboat to stall off the untiring rush at the end Longboat has proved that he has no peer at the Marathon distance when he is right Shrubb has an even more complete monopoly at the middle distances Their meeting should make a race with a thrill in everyone of 262 laps and prove one of the greatest spiked shoe duels in the history of athletics Shrubb intends to make the Indian run faster than he ever did In his life for the first ten miles or lose a lot of ground In fact Shrubb is confident he will be able to gain several laps on the Indian in the first part of the race The little Briton can run single miles around 4 minutes 22 seconds while Longboats extreme speed Is about 4 minutes 40 seconds for that distance- It Is another proposition however as to what will happen during the last half of the race Shrubb himself is not sure he can stick the distance out but he says If his legs do not give way he will be far in the lead at the finish Longboat has a great amount of endurance with a long stride and he will plug the route In close to record time unless he goes back on the form he has shown so far Shrubb will have to get under the record in order to win Shrubb is not any larger than the average primary school boy He weighed IIS pounds before his twelve mile relay race against Kanaly Simp defeatedIincontest he tipped the scales at 112 In a recent interview Shrubb said I can surely beat Longboat at the shorter distances He will tell you so But he is a great Marathon runner I must admit There isnt any question about his staying powers or his game ness but in a ten mile race Ill give him a lap handicap and beat him I was at my best when I was twen tyone How I could run in those days Ive just turned thirty but Im only a minute and a half off my former speed When I made the ten mile worlds record at Stn mford Bridge track I was paced by n field of thirty two men I had to travel some too I can tell you I was setting a worlds mark and had to pick my way through that flying bunch The handicaps were so arranged that some of the men were two miles and a half ahead of me before I started So you can liming ine how I buzzed around that quarter mile track The Marathon fever has reached Cal ifornia Several sporting promoters In Los Angeles have offered a purse of 10000 for a three cornered race with Longboat Dorando and Hayes as starters the distance to be 20 miles 385 yards The purse will be cut up so that each man can have 3000 with an extra 1000 for the winner It is said that Longboat has accepted and that if the others follow his example the race will be run Feb 22 SUSPENDEES TO COMPETE Six Athletes Recently In Trouble Again In

of the Lesson Acts iii 126 Memory Verses 9 10Golden Text Acts iii 16 Commentary Prepared by Rev D M Stearns Copyright 1903 by American Press Association In this chapter we have another testimony from Peter to the power of the risen living Christ in the presence of a large congregation the temple who were gathered to see the man who had beep lame from his birth now perfectly healed In this discourse Peter looks back not only to the death and resurrection of Christ but away farther back to the prophecies concern Ing Him and to the covenant made with Abraham and then onward to the time o His coming again to re store all things of which the prophets have spoken Thus we have another example of the contents of the Scrip tures and how to use them the hu miliation and suffering of Christ the center of all and the kingdom the circumference See Jn I Pet i 11 iv 13 v1 hisjrepeated references to the sufferings of Christ and the glory that shall follow It is written in Isa xxxv among other samples of king dom life that the lame shall leap as an hart and in this man of out les son walking and leaping and praising God we have a fulfillment of that prophecy for as I understand it the kingdom was not irrevocably post poned till by the martyrdom of Ste phen they rejected the Holy Spirit as they had the Father and the Son As the apostles preached the good news there were not thousands saved every day or every week but daily some saved ones were added to the church ii 47 There is quite a con trast between helping a poor blind beggajand winning thousands of souls and yet the former may as truly glo rify God as the latter Not many lives are filled with startling events but every redeemed life may be filled with to called commonplaces to the glory of God I find much help and comfort in meditating upon the life that was lived iu the humble home and the carpenter shop of Nazareth with which the Fa ther testified that He was well pleased In the opening verses of our lesson the temple Is very prominent but neither tabernacle nor temple was anything apart from Him who said Let them make Me a sanctuary that I may dwell among them Ex xxv 8 one greater than the temple who when He cleansed it said Make not My Fathers house an house of mer chandise Matt xii John iifl6 While as a rule there was at this time no real worship of God in the temple we must remember such as

the time of the king dom when the walls 40f the city shall he called Salvation and her gates Praise Isa Ixvi IS The inhabitant shall not say 1am sick and there shall be no more death nor sorrow nor c

of many who profess to pray to God May Ps Ixii J become truly our own experience We see in the days in which we liven unprecedented grasping for silver and gold because of that which people think It

their Saviour and Mes siah and thus obtain the forgiveness of sins The gospel that does not proclaim the forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ is notthe gospel of God but some other which does not

pounced that the evacuation will be completed by April 1 After that date the ever faithful isle will be left to work out its own destiny It is problematic whether the cit izens of Cuba are fitted for selfgov ernpaent The fibst assay wasa failure and a dismal failure at that JJMatry of the merchants and leading men of the country are against the new government and in favor of annexation to the United States We do not want the island In spite of the assertions of the press of the world that the United States was after Cuba and would sever let itgo this government has twice shown that its original declarations were made in good faith But if the present experiment in self gpvern ment provesavjulurje it ignore than likely thatsbmevkTnd ofa pr tectolj 1 r ate will be established by the

these meetings we find that the subject of securing regular and punctual attendance is given atten tion JAs a character builder a school can do no better service than to cul tivate in the pupils habits of regularity and should have the cooperation of every parent But this is by no means true We know that children are permitted to absent them selves for the most frivolous reasons A child fails to prepare his task and headache suddenly develops He is not well enough to go to chool but does not miss a meal and can play in the streets however bad the weath or The irregular attendance of a pu- Pil not only does injury to him but his absence one day requires more of the teachers time the next which ip due to other pupils Not only this but losing the thread of the course ofstudy loses interest in subjegt We notice that at a recent meet ing of the faculty it was determined to give additional credits for punct uality and regularity in attendance beginning with the second tern Jan 25th This seems tows wise and we sincerely hope that the teachers will not be disappointed in this effort to improve the school UPSETS PRECEDENT Judge In Libel Suit Says Witnesses Need Not Testify

for preparation for the im portant ceremony that Mrs Allen deemed necessary During this pe riod the busiest spot in Arizona was the kitchen of Allen Hacienda An Immense cake big as a cheese was the crowning effort of Josephine who wept copiously at the thought of los ing her daughter as she measured and jmixed the ingredients A layer of frosting an inch in thickness Incrusted this masterpiece of

courtships are magnified torn to pieces paraded before the world his tenderest emotions being dissected and laid bare in a manner the most cal lous His despair over the death of one sweetheart his letters to his misunderstandings with anotherI who finally became Mrs are set forth to the last detail They are only such experiences as occur to most men with variations of course to fit each Individual case With oth ers they are considered sacred how ever and if mentioned at all it is with a delicacy which one would wish r shown to his own love affairs It seems to be the price of greatness that nothing is sacred If the future immortal I whispers tender nothings In a J corner they are afterward bawled from the housetops If he so much as casts a melting glance at some fair one it is photographed for the inspec tion of future ages There are three affairs in the life of the martyr president and a fourth is hinted at by at least one biographer the average man can remember an equal number and perhaps several more The beauty with Lincoln is that wasnot insensible charms nil his heart attacks came before mar riage which is not invariably the case in these days of affinities and divorce courtsThere must be no mistake made in one regard Abraham Lincoln was a society man In Springfield his name Was on most of the committees that got uP functions and he was a wel come guest at all houses The same was true in Washington the two years he served in congress While he was not exactly a ladies man for the rea son that he was forever telling stories and so got all the men around him he was not insensible to feminine charms and was as ready to fall in love as any young man with strong passions and an eye for beauty This seems so much a matter of course that it is strange Mr Lincolns biographers should dwellon it at such length It Is on a par with referring so constantly to his height to his homeliness and to the fact that he told broad stories It is as though we- Should say that Abraham Lincoln is chiefly noted for his ugliness his love affairs his risque anecdotes and his t great length and not that he is cele brated for liberating race for saving a nation for being merciful democratic truth loving and of soul In other words we put forward his nonessentials at the expense of his es i sentials We emphasize those things he was not distinguished Ffrom his kind to the exclusion of those things in which he was so distin guished Other men have had love af fairs not essentially different from thoTC of Lincoln others have been as ugly or as tall and others have told M many stories but nobody else ever tocued an emancipation proclamation rfco one else ever held together the J worlds greatest republic in the hour withiemeekness and greatness and fear pth rts dale been more tender hearted it 1 c i 1 ByJames A Edgerton tt Copyrhtht 1908 by the t+ American Press AociationI d benevolent honest and truthful He was the very incarnation of the thing we call Americanism of the demo cratic spirit He was the glorified type of the common man the voice and leader of the plain people It is these things that have made him the gen tlest memory of our world Presuma bly he had ten fingers two ears and the usual number of found in optrudethesekins are equally endowed in this re gard There are a billion and a half of human entities now living nearly all with ten fingers two ears and the full complement of bones Most of them likewise have had love affairs or will have them when they arrive at the susceptible age most of them old enough to talk at all have told stories themIsort or other Yet there is not a sin gle Abraham Lincoln in the whole billion and a half Why spend so much time on describing a mans hair and eyebrows when he has a soul or rather is a soul so supremely worth studyNot that Iwould minimize Mr Lin colns love affairs These things in the IiHe to femiriineJ white bones life of any man are beautiful and are cherished according to the degree of his development With a man of Lin coins tender heart and sensibilities such things would be sacred and holy not to be profaned by light references or prying eyes A mans public life belongs to the public His private and domestic affairs are his own The mere fact that one is prominent does not make him the legitimate prey of the merely curious Many great men have had unhappy home lives Poor Lincoln was none too fortunate in this regard But he Is at least entitled to respect even though he was denied his full measure of happiness Such respect would shield him from a pry Ing scrutiny after death that would never have been given hiS affairs dur toIhave been his devoted friends it must be said that they have dragged his purely private affairs to light in a very tactless if not ah indelicate manner Moreover many of their conclusions reflecting on his parents and some re garding his wife have been shown by thorough investigation to be untrue For example Herndon says that Lin coln absented himself on his wedding night As careful a biographer as Ida M Tarbell denies this and gives the word of numerous personal friends of proveIcerning Thomas and Nancy Hanks Lincoln have been proved untrue by the actual records brought to light The simple facts are that Lincolns parents his early life his education ais courtships and his doniestic life were about such as fall to the lot of he average man born reared and liv ing his adult life in a similar environ ment His stories were about st1 has were told by other frontiersmen la w exceptAt Prsk l that Lincoln were better and nior to the point He might have been a little taller and more homely than most but If so what of it There was nothing abQut all these circumstances to differentiate him from his kind or to explain him They were the shell of the oyster but gave no indications of the pearl inside Yet there are beautiful things and such as can be spoken of with all propriety and respect in the love affairs and the home life of Abraham Lin coln His despair at the death of Ann Rutledge his agony over the snows beating on her grave the fears of his friends for his sanity which went to the length of their taking precautions against his possible suicideall thisv presents a touching and pathetic pic ture As for the affair with Mary Owens there is nothing in it worthy a pass ing notice except that it showed a fine sense of honor on the part of Lincoln and an unselfish thoughtfulness for the happiness of his future wife About the courtship with the woman be finally married and about his home life with her there has been more or less dispute Herndons exploded sto ry that Lincoln ran away on his mar riage night has already been men tioned With quite as much particu larity Lamon states that at this time Mr Lincoln was regally in love with a Miss Edwards who lived in the same house with his fiancee and that this fact accounts for his dejection which was then more pronounced than usual and also for the long delay In his mar riage to Miss Todd So far as the writer Is aware no other biographer mentions the alleged infatuation for Miss Edwards That Mr Lincoln was to some extent unhappy in his married life is a fact disputed by none The degree of this unhappiness has probably leon exag gerated Moreover there hare been so many slighting references to Mrs Lincoln that I feel like taking up the cudgels in her behalf That she had a temper is probably true A temper is not necessarily a bad thing Mr Lincoln himself had a prodigious temper when it was aroused So had Wash ington So has man or woman that amounts to anythingIBut there is this much to be said for the wife of Abraham Lincoln She loved him as was shown by the fact that she married him despite his long delay While Herudons story about the marriage night dereliction is prob ably untrue there was some kindred happening at about that time An other thing that can be said in Mrs Lincolns behalf is that she showed enough discrimination to prefer Abra ham Lincoln to Stephen A Douglas Under the circumstances this required true insight into character Douglas when he paid court to her was already a great man which was not so ap parent in Lincolns case Douglas was brilliant polished and had a most winning manner while Lincoln was more or less uncouth and shy in fem mine society Miss Todd was the daughter of a leading man of Kentucky and thus Douglas belonged to her own social class in those outward things which make up class distinc tions while Lincoln did not Never theless she chose Lincoln She is en titled to honor for both her vision and her heart Miss Todd always said that she would marry a president of the United States No ordinary woman would have had the courage to say that in the face of the ridicule it would occa sion and no one but a very extraor dinary woman would have had the ability to pick the winner Is it not just possible that some of Lincolns biographers have overdrawn his unhappiness at home just as they have unduly emphasized his poverty and have done positive injustice to his father Is it not possible that there was some resentment due to the fact that Miss Todd belonged to an aristo cratic family and did not share her husbands views on slavery And is It not more than possible that there has been an undue prying Into the private affairs of both Mr Lincoln and his wife Lincolns great love for his children which caused him to err if at all on the side of too great indulgence would not indicate a Wholly unhappy home life The fact that Mrs Lincoln was loyal to her husband and his ambition that she shared his great life that she bore double sorrows in the death of jeer sons and his own assassination and that she endured so much abuse from biographers without murmur en title her to our charity and respect She was a woman a wife and mother She is dead Common chivalry and common humanity would at least dic tate that nothing should be said of her now except in loving tenderness if not that silence For one I am tired of much of the utterly trivial stuff written about Abraham Lincoln He was a great enough man to be treated in a great dignitydthose who would show his true spirit to the world His domestic life was utterly white The same high honor the same thoisht fulness for the happiness of others the same patience and forbearance the tame great love nature are found hi his courtships and his home that appear in all his other relations and seeds He was so much greater than his early environment and associates that there islIttle gained by dwelling apon them- Abraham Lincoln as we have come to know him appeals to all men be cause he is so like what all men want 0 be He appeals to all boys because he shows them their possibilities He
