I Jlhere is Dotbin; , new to any thoiuhtful man or to anyone who' is oven moderately familiar with the history of his own and other times In either tlie speech of Dr. Schurman or thjKt of Representative Underwood. But so many speeches have been made and so many articles have been written In favor of these heresies by men who are either thoughtless or Ignorant or deliberately, demagogical, that a real service is rendered to sound government when men like Schurman and Underwood discuss the subject. BISCtSSI>G DIRICT BEMOCR.VCY. _ It Is rather an inieresiing coincidence that on the same day two of the'well known men of the country, President Schurman of Cornell L'ni- versfty, and Oscar Underwood, Democratic leader of the House of Representatives, should have spoken upon the same subject and taken the same [ peal fails to see the slU.v, not to say arSAMARAS A>1) JOHN BROWN. The answer of tho Appeal to Treason to the McXamara confession is a full page of editorial comment in which the brothers are likened to Jphn Brown, and their d>Tiamiting outrages aro compared with Brown's raid on HafjJer's Ferry. It would be- IntercSafing to know whether any single reader of the Ap- view of It " The subject was direct legislation, as embodied in the Initiative, referendum and recall, and both of these very able men, one a Demo- cratjind the other a Republican, one a statesman and the other a scholar, spoke with the utmost emphasis ^against the "reform." President Schurman declared that thes'ft proposed new methods of government "take us back a thousand years to the wretched governmental machinery of the ancient world," a remark that is prayerfully commended to the fledgling "reformers" who imagine that in advocating these measures they have bit upon something Tiew. "We now have government by second thought," continued • Mr. Schurman. "the question is, shall wfe replace it by government of first Impulse? A direct democracy would cnd'ln political chaos and dictator- ^Bhip.*^ And we commend that remark - also to those who have imagined they •were advocating a system of government that would bring about ideal conditions. Mr. Underwood, like Dr. Schurman, called attention to the failure of direct democracies wherever and wben- ever-they had been tried, and polnt- _ed ont the danger of Individual rights —and Individual liberty that would be _Jncurred by vesting final and unap­ pealable power in a political majority. He expressed the opinion based __on a long legislative experience, and borne out by all our history, that all legislative bodies are ultimately responsive to the enlightened and ma" tured sentiment of the people and that'll measures demanded by the J'people were sometimes delayed, thoy wertJ all the wiser when finally enacted, by Reason of the delay. But the strong point he made was the obser- Totlon that the masses of the people are far better judges of men than they are of measures, that they are far more likely to select an honest man than they are an honest measure. That, In our judgment, comes about as near to summing up the advantages of representative over direct government ap can be done in a single sentence, ft requires a very "considerable dpgrijo of education, a of tima study and discus- sacriligious absurdity of such comparison. The evidence already made public makes it fairly clear that the Mc.N'a- maraa were in the dynamiting business for a livelihood. Tliey follow.^d it for the money there was in it. I They had a regular scale of prices- for, Riven jobs, the amount varying according to the risk involved and tho she of the structure to be destroyed. AM ^ the "cause," with the cloak of which they made a pretense of hiding their brutal and infamous crimes, was more nearly human slavery than human freedom. Their blows were di- rectedjwt tho men who claimed the right to 'work for whom they pleased such wages as suited thrm. It was these men, guilty of no other crimfl than that, that the McXa- maras were fight ing, and twenty-one of whom' they killed in the Los Angeles explosion. John Brown was fighting for tho great principle of human freedom. Ho was not'fighting individuals. He was fighting an institution, the institution of human slaverj*. Tho raid on Harper's Perry was an attack upon tlio govertjment which fostered and protected this institution. It was not an assault upon some Individual citizen or firm who differed with lilni on a merely eoonomlc question. Thr raid was planned to concentrate attention upon the institution of slavery intolerable, inhuman thing that must no longer he permitted to exist in a country that called itself frep. To liken the McNaraaras, mere mpT- cenary murderers, destroying property and if necessary taking human llff at so much per "job," to Old John Brown, the Crusader for Freedom would only occur to a mind that is hopelessly perverted and incapable of logical argument there ver» Ukeljr' to be Indlaa raids any whers. from Caasds to Mexico, it 'was aecflssary to have a string of forts iloac that.line. 'But that ne- ceBslty has disappeared. The building of raiUroads has made It possible also, to concentrate the army rapidly aild send troops from one end of the countr Tto the other with little delay. There Is'no reason lafft, therefore, for the division into'small de- ta'cliitaents of our little army, and It would be In the interest of both efflc-, leacy and economy to have the old. plan abandoned. •fxt-4> •!> 4 + f •i'4> 4> •»> • AS 0TIIEB8 SEE THnfGS. • « • •f>4>4"l>4<»<»4>4><l><l>4>4><|><»4><l"» •Tfiere is one change in the organiza tion|Of the army recommended by the Secretary of War, which should certainly be made.

The Tariff Board reports that Ii;. a suit of clothes that costs $23.00 at retail, tiie farmer's profit Is cents, and the manufacturer's profit 23 cents, while the wholesa](er cleans up $2.18 and the retailer $l50. The questi<m that naturally arises is How -will a reduction of the duty on wool or woolen goods help the fellow who must buy the suit at retail? We are asking thI6 qu^stfoh for'Informa­ tion, as they say-at-Washington, and not I nlhe way of controversy. We quite agree with the Topeka Capital In the opinion that Detective Bums is cheapening his reputation by his intemperent attacks upon Mr. Gompers. This paper Is not a champion of Mr. Gompers particularly Indeed it •will be surprised riather than otherwise, if he is not found to be unworthy of the trust that Unfon Labor has reposed in him. But Mr. Bums knows him to be a crook, as he says he does, he ought to produce the proof instead of ealllng him names In newspaper Interviews. "I have voted for Bryan three times and I will Tote for him again, if 1 get a chance. My Republican choicci would be LaFollctte," writes some man to the Topeka Capital in response to that paper's straw ballot scheme. It Is perfectly natural that a man'with that political record should prefer LaFollette: But what righthas he to a "Republican choice?" And will the Capital record his vote aa counting one for LaFollctte? A couple of farmers way down in Salom township telephoned in to the Register yesterday that thry .wanted in on the Big Brother business.

Journal: The rising star of Roosevelt In the political firmament has played hob with the insurgents. Although the former president is not a candidate to succeed Mr. Taft and has repeatedly said that he would not be,' ijiany of his strong personal friends are urging him to reconsider. It does not seem probable that he will allow his name to go before the Chi cage convention and he has trfed In every dignified way to stop the movement In his behalf. But the posslbll ity that at the last moment it might be considered c.vpedient to call upon Roosevelt to carry the Republican banner has flattened the LaFollette boom completely. I In no direction Is the effect of the Roosevelt sentiment more manifestly disconcerting than in Kansas. Gov eraor Stnbbs and,his machine had it all figured out They intended to call a special session of the Kansas legislature, pass a presidential preference primary and with the help of Democratic votes commit the Kansas Republicans to LaFollette. The cards were already to deal, when somebody "whooped it up" for Roosevelt and Governor Stubbs slopped In surprise If he shoold succeed in placing the Kansas Republicans on record'for La FoUette it might make It imposslbl for the delegation to be stampeded to. Roosevelt at the last minute. Suddenly the beauties of the direct pri mary faded in the mind of the governor. It was to beat Taft that the Kansas Insurgents took up the scheme of tlie direct presidential prI mary so as to give the state to IA FoUette. To be sure, it is only remot* ly possible that Roosevelt will permit his name to be used in Chicago. But even such a possibility cannot be disregarded. It would be highly embarrassing for All of the Kansas Insurgent politicians to commit them selves unreservedly to J.aFoIletto and have Roosevelt "come back. Such a contingency might deprive them of the patronage at the Presl dent's disposal, for Roosevelt would be under no obligation to feed those who had come out for another instead of shouting continuously for him. In Ohio the carefully planned, state wide whirlwind campaign in favor of LaFollette has suffered a similar blight Several days ago it was an notuiced that practically all the lead ing insurgent; orators would spend the Christmas holidays in Ohio in the interests of the Wisconsin Senator. But the spectre of Roosevelt has appeared to each of these politicians and all but three have suddenly can celeld the engagement They dare not oppose ti»e possiblo claims of Roosevelt and espouse the remote and unpromising chances of LaFollette. Of all that awsome battery of insurgent orators who were booked for speeches in Ohio only IjiFolIette and Pinchot and Clapp are left. In vain does Pinchot shout to his disorgan ized following that Roosevelt will not be a candid.ite. He cannot rally the wary old politicians who believe in pla>ing safe. It is the same in Ohio as in Kansas. The insurgents do not want to commit themselves and their state to LaFollette when an opportunity might arise to jump into thn Roosevelt bandwagon. Tim entire LaFollette gasbag seoms suddenly to have collapsed. THE BE.ST PROOF. lola Citizen!* Cannot Donlit It Doan's Kidney Pills were used— they cured.

For twelve years I had been trying various medicines to find relief but my efforts were unsuccessful. My back was very weak and the least work caused Intense pains to dart acrosH my kidneys. My feet and llnibs oftt -n became badly swollen and I had dirri- culty in paPsiiJR the kidney secretions. This latter symptom led me to belinve that I had kidney trouble and on a trend's advice, I began using Drian's Kidney Pills. In a short time I f^t iKtter and 1 steadily improved until I was cured. On January; 3, 1907, I gave a statement for publication recommending Doan's Kidney Pills and sdnce then my opinion of this preparation has not changed.
