THE COMMONWEALER3 It is probable that the Coxey craze has culminated In the retirement of the Coxey ' 'army" over the border of the District of Columbia into Maryland, to remain for a brief season as an army of occupation and observation and then disappear among the millions it has interested, amused and tired out. It is doubtful if any other such army ever reaches Washington, These deluded bands of men have, as a rule, exemplified some of the good traits of American citizenship. They have been patient, enduring and law- abiding. The roost of them are native Americans or naturalized citizens of the beat types. Many of them are skilled workmen out of employment. Few of them are professional tramps. As an object lesson In the prevailing industrial conditions, they have excited much pity and itlrred the best feelings of humanity, but their mis. sion is based upon dangerous delusions, and their methods of exploiting It cannot be safely tolerated. The end must come soon, and the full sway of law and order be restored. The seeds Of disorder can only produce anarchy And revolution, and our lynoh- ers white-cappers and dynamiters, are quite enough of that kind of seed, without the aid of pilgrim armies,traversing and living upon the country on vagrant missions that are purely revolutionary and utterly do- structive to the common welfare. Let us hope that all that has been commendable In the conduct of the oom- monwealers will remain with them, to their credit, at hour of their final dis appearance from the public gaze.

It is a tariff for protection with incidental revenue, and a tariff for revenue with Incidental protection. The Senate dicker bill protects traders In payment for votes to pass it, and southern interests on sectional and partisan lines and subsidises trusts for partisan boodle. All other interests of this country are handed by it'over to the .tender mercies of foreign countries, who are massing their forces to take posseislon of our markets when it passes. Under these conditions it is small wonder that so many persons are wishing that Congress would pass the appropriation bills and adjourn, lotting Coxey's army, If need be, camp In the Capitol and be fed upon the fat of tho land.

That's what they are all claiming to have nowadays. And by they, I mean woman with or without a capital, with or without a spring bonnet, but always with a tongue oalcu» lated, like that famous brook, to run on forever. I saw a picture the other day of the prehistoric woman and after her death, evidently to keep her quiet there had been drawn through her lips long strings of flax so that they could not possibly more. There are some women I would like to see undergo this treatment while alive, and there are some others who are so delightful to listen to and who spy such truthful things that one wishes time wasn't fleeting and art less long. I listened to both kinds the other day. One of them gleefully announced that she had put her name on five different petitions advocating woman's suffrage, and she supposed when she got a vote she would be able to vote fire different times. She finished up by saying: "I can't understand why you object to suffrage, because I think it will be so awfully cute. THE WOMAN WHO HAD AN IDEA. Its outeness hadn't struck the other woman, so she started in to tell why she didn't believe suffrage was desirable. "In the first place, said she, "instead of extending the suffrage, I would contract it. I would let to man . vote who had not lived in this country five years, who did not know how to read and write, and who was not a property holder. Then, I do not think the women of this generation or tho next or the next will be politically educated. What do I mean by that? I mean this. It is Inherent in every man to value his vote. Generations of men have taught him its worth. From the stand point of a professor of English literature, this man may know nothing, but politically, he Is educated. He knows the meaning of great movements, he knows what men in political life represent, and he hasn't learned this yesterday, or laet year, but It has come from father to son In a strasght line. Then, I do not believe that women will be able to separate the man from the politician. At present they seem to thick that when they get the vote, all men will become saints. Now, If you happen to hear that the man who was put up for Mayor had committed a little fault that was against your idea of what was right and wrong, you would refuse to vote for him, and perhaps keep out of place a man competent to make good laws for tho commonwealth. Women are essentially emotional, and their votes would represent, not their knowledge of what was good for the nation, but their personal likes and dislikes. Then there Is another thing. It la proven by statistics that one-quarter of the life of every woman finds her ia a condition when, mentally and physically, she is not able to cope with men. I tell you, tha whole thing ia wrong. "There Is what you call the bad vote—and you say, very glibly, that you will keep theie unhappy women from voting. How are you going to do it? Will any one of these women register her trade? Won't her vote be bought? By-the-by, talking about Shadw Of ftrorge Wuhlngtop, '• ton, Daniel Webster, Henry Clay, Wlnthrop, Roscoe Cockling, Randolph and all the great procession who were fine politicians, who made good laws, and who yet saw tho virtue of taking a little wine for their stomach's sake and their often infirmities, what do you think of this? These are a few of my reasons for objecting ''to suffrage." The other woman didn't say much, but she pouted a little and then for her criticism announced: "I don't think that what you have said Is very nice, and I don't think you ought to have such positive ideas; it isn't refined." THEATRICNL OPINIONS ADVANCED. And this woman thinks she ought to have a vote! Somebody else was talking about the play which has caused so much discussion—"Hannele." Said she; "I saw It the night that there was an audience, and right here I must say that, under those circumstances, when the people were a thinking, cultured set, who came not to condemn without reason or to praise unless they saw cause for It, and when there was no noise, it presented itself to me as at once one of the most wonderful dramatic plays and one of the saddest I Highert of all^ Leavening Power.—Lttert U.S. Gov't Report al Bakip* E*'Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE evening, when the visitors were to arrive. THINGS WERE SPICK AND STAN, and I don't believe there were happier boys in the world than those hard-working little chaps as they escorted their visitor*, around and let them look at the glories of the new rooms, the dainty curtains and the flowers and plant?. They dedicated it all by singing 1 'America,' but when I Bay all I mean as many as knew it. After It was finished they all—this time it was all—eang, but the next song was "Molly and I and the Baby,' and after that erery boy came In with exti a force as the charms of the Bicycle Made for Two' and the rap. turous love felt for 'Daisy Bell' were dilated upon. They dirt have a good time; and I don't believe they ever have a thought about suffrage, or had never seen. But I do not think , . , . . It should ever be acted before an ordl • I «"f " £ ft f"' or ^** el , 8 ° 6XC6p ' n*ry audience, nor can I brine myBelf I dolnif their work as well as the, can. ^ u 11 14 I u» t i. 4 14 u u u I getting through It BS soon as they can, to believe it right that it should be f , \ , , M A „ , I bavins-as much fun as possible, and Brought played by ordinary actors, before us as the Passion Flay is at Oberammergau, played In a spirit of reverence by people who lead believing, simple lives, it would have its place. It is a marvelous lesson against cruelty. The great objection to it has been that it would make familiar fall that should be approached- with deference. This it might do If, at any time during the play, there was an attempt at wit or at religious controversy, but it repre« sents people who believe, and, after all, the story of the reward that is to come to the little creature who has suffered so much Is only a dream. There is not an effort made, unless Indeed, it should be in the use of words spoken by our Blessed Saviour, to Induce one to believe that the good angel who cares for Hannele Is other than a good angel, for although cloth, ed in white garments, the face and the hair, the whole figure are those of the schoolmaster, the only human being, except her mother, who had been kind to the child. As a mystic play, It is great; but it should not be presented in the theatre, nor do I think it possible that In a nation lacking belief, like this, it would be understood. Now, for my objections to it. I have never belived In CONFOUNDING THE THEATRE WITH THE CHURCH. "A play should either Interest or amuse; that, usually, the wicked are punished and the good are rewarded in a play is because the audience prefers that picture of life. The theatre Is Intended as a place of recreation, consequently we do not want to have THE plan of the new gas pany is guarded at every com* point In tho Interests of the lubsorlbers who want cheap gas and plenty of it, and they will get such gas prompt. ly and surely If they pay their modest consumers fire subscriptions, no matter how much the old gas company "heathen" may "rage" and "say vain things." >i ^__^_^^ PROTECTION does "restrict trade 1 ' in one direction, and only in that one. It restricts trade In foreign produo. tlons, but to a much larger extent promotes trade in home productions. I The intelligent American will readily I w ' no can say P her registering,reminds me of a funny story I heard once, which may be true or untrue. A VKttY CLEVER WOMAN got up an opera, and, standing behind the scenes, she said to a friend: 'Isn't it lovely to see a good ballet?" And the friend answered: 'Yes, they dacce vary well." "And she said: 'Oh, that isn't what I mean; isn't It lovely to see a virtuous ballet? 1 "And bor friend asked: 'How do you Know they are all virtuous? "'Qh,'she said, 'I sent a paper around, and every one of them wrote that they were, opposite their names.' •'Now, that Is what will happen to what you call the bad vote. Then there Is something else. It Is right and proper that a woman should love pretty clothes. Don't you suppose there is many a young girl who will sell her vote for a blue silk frook? Or a preity brooch? or a new parasol? 'I don't deny that men sell their votes, but I don't believe as many sell them as Is believed, and I think the sale of votes would be less if suffrage were reitrloted. "Wyoming? Yes the women vote in Wyoming, and people who have lived there .tell me that gambling is allowed by law, morality is at Us lowest ebb, and If there have been fewer hangings—legal ones. I mean—it has been because lynching Is more popular. What the Influ • ence of the favorite clergyman may be upon the votes of his congregation, I heard one woman »n- our souls harrowed and our hearts torn to pieces by what we see there. I do not think any woman who had ever lost a little child could endure seeing 'Hannele,' for there Is brought to her and before her, not alone tho restfulness of death, but the horrors of It and the trappings cf it. The lesson that it teaches would, when this story is played in the theatre, not reach the class of people who nood it; but, played as the peasants .might do it, and before people not unlike those in the play, who would see it as it was meant, the purpose desired by the author, who I do believe wrote it in all earnestness, might bo attained. What we, as a nation, need, and what the theatre should give us. is some* thing that will prove interesting, amusing and restful and this play, with its wonderful mysticism, can not do this." "Well, the night you went to see that," said another woman, "I went somewhere else. I saw the new road- ing room started for the Boys' Club. There is more goodtess to be derived from that than there is from either mysticism or suffrage. The boys had appeared about three o'clock, with faces glowing from the effects of soap and water and they began with great energy to arrange to receive their guests. Chairs were carried to where they would be needed, and everything done to have the place in order for having aa much fun as possible, putting a little money in the Fenny Provident Fund. That's the sort of thing that appeals to me." Somebody elee was talking about gratitude, and a woman put up her lorgnette, looked at the other one curiously, and then said: "Do you over expect It? Why, I got over that long ago. When I do anything unselfish or generous nowadays, I do it because It gives some pleasure and makes me feel more comfortable, but I don't ex- pectQffratitude any more than I do that there should be no weeds because they're all flowers. THE MORE I SEE OF HUMANITY 1 , the more I am convinced that gratitude is an unknown quantity. People seem to dislike you as soon as it is possible for you to do anything that is good for them. It is the old story of one man hating the other who has lent him money. Perhaps it Is pessimistic, I don't like to think it is, but people will force these disagreeable things upon you. So nowadays, when I am made unhappy, I ask myself: "Who did I oblige? Who did I Rive anything 1 to? Who did I let eat my bread and butter, and who did I share the contents of my purse?' For I am certain that the blow comes not from the stranger, but from that one within my pates who should, of all others, regard me." I don't like to bear this, but, oh, I know it is so true, and BO do you my friend. And so does every human being who has ever tried to be good and kind and thoughtful of other people. I tell you what we will do—you come to the eame conclusion that I have. One only reaches this when there have been a good many blows to the heart. THE FLOWER THAT GROWS IN THE HEART. Conclude to be generous as well as just, to be thoughtful as well as polite, not because of the reward that will como, but because it Is right, and then you are bound to make yourself happy. I' you know you have done as near right as you know how, and as your Invlronments would allow, then you can give the smile, perhaps it will be a sad one, at every fresh species of Ingratitude, and If you keep on doing this you will find that there is a little flower that is growing and growing in your heart. One day you will dis. cover that It is the rose of happiness, and that its sweet odor is so delight, ful that you will forget in the joy it gives that your kindness and generosity have met with no human recognition. Lot us try to cultivate that flower—you and I—it Is well worth while, and every now and then you help me by sendiLg a word of encouragement to BAB. sliantytown makes wiTitinjf at thai dreary junction even more depressing.
