In commenting upon the Sherwooi bill the Register reniarkrd that large i;roporlion of tlie ex-vl'nion sol diers now survisin.i; were men wh( enlisted late in the war and there fore had comparaii.riy short term of service. That remark was base upon statenniHis we had seen else where and which, without persona verification, had been taken as au ical demagoguiw who misrepresent thentic. Rut it must be wide of thr men and motives, make a noise about inark if the membership of McCooV evils which do not exist and main- I'ost furnisfies a criterioji by whicl tain a perpetual agitation for their ! to reach a conclusion, li/a communi own selfish benefit." They I'ciiit otit |«alion printed elsewhere in this is the fact that fundamentally the iia-j sue, Mr. J. U. Goshorn. shows tha :.liundi:nt ns it is now should be absolutely no illfflcuUy flnanclng it. But one time after another they have been turned down because the men who have money invest do not want to put it Into corporate investment at a time-when and in a place where the only public men who seem able to command public support or attention are thoae who have made a specialty of denounc Ing corporations and demanding that there be thrown around them legal rcstrictioTis and rcqiilntions und which no private business could <• 1st. It is one thing to frame laws wjiich will protect the people from extortion and discrimination. Ks'erybody is (n favor ot that. It is quite another thing to demand legislation of such a character as to absolutely put stop to legiiiniato investment and thus retard the development of the country. This lattfr is-what has been done by the poHilcal agitators encouraged, .ildid iiirl abetted by sensational ir.rc. .vriicr;^ and pro feRsloiiiil nlntronn ••.•.•,riii"r>.," and is 11'. :e iriilli •.'•.—<- |i ti.ld. th't" eoun '.iy v • '. iiil;! wliii ih our (1, iliii-!i l( V 111 vr:y I 'a 'jil ih nuind. !.•> a le'lt'ci v\\'<' i/ ;-,">Mm, p.nMy platform <r:-.i riii-;Ivf< .ind no deatri'clive, «i)on whleli shall placed parly candld»;< •. wi:h sent-enough to see an drourar,- enoii.c to declare that a country nny booming with bis; busliies.'-.. li!:)t Iher' may be regulation wilhoii! str.ingii lation, that there may be sueec: without criminality.

And that this is not the opinion e "big business" alone anyone ma: learn for himself by a very little In quiry. Ask the men in lola. for ex ample, who have been struggling fc two y <>ars with the problem of an In ter-urban railroad. The propositioi is. an absolutely sound one.

This i very iuteresting and to the ex 'ent tr which the same contliiioiis would holr" good the countr>' over, it would tvnC to modify in part the criticism of Sherwood bill. Still, as Mr. fioshon -ays, McCook Post, and we believe th ank and file of Old Soldiers ever> vhere would prefer the Sulloway bill '•^or one thing the Sullowny bill nnkes no discrimination among th' oldiers on account of income, as the '.herwood bill docs, and we think that 3 right.

Later: Since the above was written the bill has been passed by the House after beteg amnedcd by striking^ out the $1 ,08^ clause and there strlction in regard to admission to the Soldiers I^omes,—amendmont.-i which very much improved the bill. T '.'O Repuhiican papers of the country seem to he unnnimoti.s in their opro?it!rm to tlK nomination by he Dcnifcrais of \V( <)W .Wilson iVonder why? —Otla-va Republic Here is one Kepifblican paper that •is not at all uii.'inimous in opposing the nomination of Governor Wilson by the Democrats. Wo do not think then is the least chance of his nomination so far as that is concerned. But if he were nominated he wouldn 't com.- withln a mile of carrying states tiiat the Democrats, under any ordinary circumstances, must have in order to win. There are a good many reasons why this would be so, but tho chief )f them Is that the .\mcrlcaii_ia;<y)lo never y<'l elected a man president •vho deliberately set out to be I'roal- dent. (ilfTord rimiinl says the peoi)le are <d:icinK social justice above partisiin mccess. Hut how can social justlcv 'le secured except through the suc- •egs of some party? That is tin liiestioii which a good many earnest Mid sincere reformers, such as Mr Pi:;ehol undoubtedly Is,^seem to overtook. They seem fo forget that there =s no war by which there can be gov- rnment in a Rejjublic except through •;o! it ical parti's. That b'-in-; true fhe men who break down inirty lines md dtmnraiize party organization, 'ntrodiiee chaos and not order and iring al'on! conditions which go far 'o make "sr.cial justice" unattainable. .•\fter trying it for four years lli ^elolt Daily Razelte retires from th leld givin.!; the simple and sufficiynt -eason that "iSeloit is not big enough for t^wo daily papers." Substitute the name of any town in Kansas below 'wenty thousand in population for hat-of Reloit and the same staleh'.ent would be true.

My Dear Theodorh: I hasten to answer your hios- welcome and suggestive letter. I have been through the perplexity time and again, both ih solitary fret and fever, and in company with all sorts and condi.icr.s of people. Kverybody laments our terribly mis­ fitted and extraxagani giving during the especial sc-son or pence and .qood will. Everybody is quite sure that our custom should he thoroughly transformed, and our i.oint of view find a more wertliy v.-.ntuge. And everybody, speaking broadly fails in any contagious way of putting thei conviction into practice. Your characters ^nd capacities have -given you intimate relations with various circles of iieoide. Your wealthy friends re<iuiro so much con sideratlon. They make such hand some gifts as a matter of course and always remember you so generously Your heart goes out to all our kith nnd kin, rich and i^oor and middl class,. You -Lave your church and business nfllllatlons, and your per sonal missionary Interests on tin frontier and over-seas. There are obligations and expet tutlouK, and ih< utter confidence, of llnle chililreii You "hate a mnkeshSft of any sort des))ise anything cheap. :ind abomi na!e trash. You always have EO liltl money that you are free to use for Christmas giving, so little limi' nnd strength you dare to devote to it. and you cannot content yours<vlf to risk any ajipearance of being too dri'ad fully economical, or in any wise in different." It is a very clear putting of th case, and I thank you for your can dor, inasmuch as 1 can sjieak out m mind with greater < aae. Someone told mo the other day that 1 'wa "brutally frank" wiien asked for a bi of critical judgment, but that is not nearly as. bad sounds.
