Frif lion pxIstK l:("iw«'«'ii iln" adiiilrnl am Men of Illinois, and you, men Kentuclcy and Missouri: I am glad to have the chance lo speak to you today. This Is the heart of what may be called the Old West, which »e now call the Middle West, using the term to dcnots that great group «f rich and powerful States which literally forms the heart -.if the coimtry. It is a region whose iieopio ^ are distinctively American in all thsir j iLought^, in all their ways of looking' at life: and in Its past and its pres'^nt | alike it is typical of our country. The; oldest men iiresent can still reniem- i her tha pioneer days, the days of the ! white-tilted o* wagon, of the emigrant j :)nd of the log cabin in which that niignint lirst lived when he settled to • i :is task as a pioneer farmer.

II is curious and | .•inuisiug to think that even as genuine; a 1 OV;T of his kind, a liian normally j so free from national prejudices as Charh^ Du-kens. should have selected the region where we are now standini; j :is th:' seat of his forlorn "Eden" in ; Martin Chu/.zlewlt. The coimtry lie | ! so bitterly assailed is now one of Iho most fertile and productive portions of one of the most fertile and pro- i .:diicllve ngrlculitiral territories liv ail the world, and the dwellers in this territory represent a hieher averaj;u of comfort intelligence, and sturdy ea- liacity for s'lf-government than the the bureau ofli.ers.

Thu trouble, coniliic as it docis oa the ev«; of the cruise of Rear ,\(lmiral Evans' flept to the Pacific. Iia:^ caused a sen- sal lou among naval men and government oflicials. Only the. peculiar position of "Fighl- ing Boh" ii is said, saves him from official leprinianil. or peiliaps. court- marliai. If some other officer irenl- ed the board orders as Evans did. he •would have b?en called upon for a'l explanation. But nothing has been done in Evans" case because of his unquesi 'Oned ability and the. public's deep affection for him. He'd Had a Few Battles Himself. Tha re|)or(ed defiance of orders liappened when the. North Atlantic fleet was practicing battle tactics a few weeks ago. For at least six months previous to that lime the general naval l>oard had worked arduously preparing plans for th.^ practice. WSien finished they were sent to the Secretary of the Navy, who sent them lo "Piphting Bob." Wlien Admiral Evans read the plans h? is said to have tlirown up his hands. Navy men said today that he gave veni to his usual frank and hearty seado;; style, to certain sentiments concerning the unwisdom of "old fossils" in Washington being allowed to give instructions in how to fight battlas to a man "right on the spot." with any other continent. The land teems with beauty and fertility, and but n score of years .ifter Dickens wrot • I: was shown to be a nursery and bleeding ground of heroes, of soldiers and stjilesmen of the highest rank, while Ih? rugged worth of the rank nnd- file of the citizenship rendered possible the deeds of the mighty me:i v.'ho Jed in c<iuncll and in battle. This was the r.-^ion that brought forth the niiclity .\braham.

Evil >ot Predominant. I commend a careful reading of Martin Chuzzlewit to the pessimist of today, to the men. who instead of flglit- ing hard to do away with abuses while at the same time losing no jot of their buayant hopefulness for the country. Insist that all our people, socially and industrially. In theli- private I'ves no less than as politicians, newspaper men. and business men, are at a lower ebb than ever before. If ever any one of you foels a little downcast over the peculiarily gloomy view of the present the fleet, and who incldentallj- had . taken by some well-meaning pessimist taken something of «« part in naval melees himself. Officers say that he did not follow Instruct'ons. He. ran the battle tactics according to the battle Iriaas of Robley T>. Evans and not of the general naval board. And in viirorous letters ho itrotestcd against th<' hoard's orders, hut his protests wen' II? no ava'l. He was toM to follow or- <| s'-nt to him by the Secretjiry.

PO.STAL BECEH'T.S LAK(.EK. tola's PostoiViee Reports Show Increase of iO Per I'ent for SeptemlRT. That lola has grown a great deal in population and is doing more postal business than a year ago, is shown ^y the lola postoffice reports for the month of Seiitember. The report which Isuot yet entirely completed and there fore not ready for publication has been far enough completed for the iiostmaster to see that there is a decided increase from the same month last year. He believes that the flg- .ures will show an increase of not less than twenty per cent. I PKESIDENT i:(M»SEVKiX most readily be dealt with; so that town, county, city, and State have their respective spheres of duty, while the nation deals with those matters which concern all of us, all of tlie people no matter where we dwell. Our democracy is based upon the belief that each individual ought to have the largest measure of liberty compat- abile with securing the rights of oth- er^ndividuals, that theaveraga citizen the pl.-un man whom we nieen in daily life, is abnormally capable of taking care of his ow-n affairs,' and has no desire to wrong any one else; and yet that in the inter?st of a|l there shall be sufficient power lodged somewhere to iirevent wicked people from tramp- Jing the wiak under foot for their own gain. Our constant endeavor is to make !i good working compromise whereby we shall s<icni-e the full benefit of individual initative and responsibility, wliile at the same time recognizing tliat it is the function of a wis? jLiovernmeiit under modern conditions not merely to protect life and property, but to foster tlie 'soc'al de- veloiunent of the people so far as this may be done by maintaining and promoting justice, honesty, and equal rights. We believe in a real, not a sham, democracy. We lulieve in lieni- ocracy as regards political rights, as regards eilucation. and finally, as re gards Industrial conditions. By democracy we understand securing, as far as it is humanly possible to secure it, equality of opportunity, (.quality of the conditions under whicli each man ! is lo show the stuff that Is in him and to achieve the measure of success to which his own force of mind and character entitle him. Ueligionsly this means that each man Is to have the ripht, unhindered bytjie state to worship his Creator as hjii conscience dic- bUos, grantinr fre.^'ly to. others the same freedom which he asks for himself. Politically we can bo said substantially to have worked out our democratic ideals, and the same is true, thanks to the common schools, in educational matters. But in indu.stry Th- li-eiid of in tilis ciiiiiitry j IK (• ~sary on the one hand lo mete is iiir.vard, not downward: and this is' out a geniToiis justice to all other peo- the trend in the' tliin.ns of the s <uil ; idi-s iiiid show llieiii courtesy and res _ _ as wel! as in the lliiiijis of the body. ! p. c:: and on the other hand, as wo j {iVe ^e has not'as vet been tlie govcrn- (•'ouTi ^nent. rrinci|il «.s Simple.

COUGriS COLDS and confidant hope for the tutiire. (There are many wrongs to right; there are many and powerful wrong doers against whom to war; and It would be base to shrink from the contest, or to fail to wage it with a high a resolute will. But I am sure that we shall win In the contest, because I know that tiic heart of our peoule IF sound. Our average men and women are good men and women—and this is true In all sections of our country and among all classes of our countrymen. There Is no other nation or earth with such vast natural resources, or with such a high standard of living and of Industrial efflclencj^ among Us Workers. We hare as a nation an era of unexampled prdaper- Ity ah'^ftd of us; we shall enjoy It, and our children will enjoy it ifter U8. others, he is even wori^e and should l)<- liunted out of the cotnmiinil .v.

The Control of Corponitions. Tliese (!ori)orntions, like the industrial «()ndilionH which have called HK-IU into being, did not exist when tiio CimsHiulion was founded; but the wise forelhoiiglit of the founders Iirovldcd, under the intcrsuite commerce clause of tlie Constitution, for th(! very emergency which has arisen, if only our |ieople as a whole will reallzn what this emergency is; for if the - iieople thoroughly realize it. their governmental iciirescnlatives will soon realize II also. The National Government alone has sufficiently• extensive jiowcr and jurisdiction lo exercise adcciuate control over the great interstate corporations. Wliile this thorough suiiervisloii and control by the .National (Jovernment Is desirable lirlmarily in the interest of the pco- lile, it will also, I firmly believe, be to the benefit of those corporations themselves which desire to he lionest and law-abiding. Only thus can we put over these coriiorations one competent and efficient sovereign—the Na­ tion—alile both to exact justice from there will be plenty of room left for ample legitimate reward for business genius, while the chance for the man who is not a business genius, but who is a Rtjod, thrifty, hard-working citizen, will be better. I do not believe, that our efforts will have anything but a beneficial effect upon the penna- nent prosperity of the country; and, as a matter of fact, even as regards any temporary effect, 1 think that any iroubie is due fundamentally not to the fact that the national authorities have discovered ami corrected certain aliuscs, but to the fact that those aliiisrs were there lo be discovered. 1 think that the excellent people Who have -omidaiucd of our policy as' hurting business have shown much the .same spirit as the ciiild who regards an achinj,' iiiciili as the real source of his viin: I itiii certain as 1 can be of any thing that the course we are pursuing will iiliiiiiaieiy help business; for the corniin man of business is, as .!;real u foe to this country as the cor- rujit iiolilician. Hcith stand on tike same evil eiiiiiieiu-e of infamy. Against both it is necessary to war; and if, unfortunately, in either tyjie of warfare, a few innocent people are hurt, tlie responsibility lies not. with us, but with those whej have mislead them to their hurt. This is a ia|)idly growing nation, on a new continent, and in an era of new, complex, and ever-shifting conditions. Often it is necessary to devise new methods of meeting these new conditions. We miisl regard the past, but we must not regard only the past. We must also think of the future:, and while we must learn by experience, we can not afford to pay heed merely to the teachings of exiierience. The great lueacher Channing in his essiay on "The Union" sjmke with fine insight ou this very jioint. In commenting on liie New England statesman Cabot, whom he greatly admired, he said that nevertheless "he had too much of tlie wisdom of experience; he wanted wliat may be called the wisdom of Iioiie." . He then continued la words which have a jieculiar fitness for the conditions of te)-day: "We apprehend that it is i)ossible la make exiierience too much our guide. .There are seasons in human affairs, of inward and outward revolution, when new dejUhs seem to be broken up In the soul, when new wants are unfolded in muilifudes, and a new and undefined goejd is thirsted for." These are iieriods when the principles of experience need to be modified, when hoiie and trust and Instinct.claim a share with iirudence in the guidance of affairs, when in truth to DARE is the highest wisdom." These sentences should be caVe- fully pondered by those men, often very good men, who forget that con; structive change offers the best method of avoiding destructive change; that reform is the antidote to revolution; .-ind that social reform is not the |)reciirsor but the preventative of Socialism: make good is demanded. National Courtesy Im|iorlant. Well, all this is just .is true of a nation as e^f an individual, and in dealing with other nations we should act as we expect a man who is both gani" nnd decent to act in private lif:-. There are few things cheaper and more objectionable, wheWier on th I'art of tha public vate man, on the : hope will be steadily followed here' ar 'er .-thal. namely, of keeiiing the battle ship ali.-rnalely in the Pacific and ill Hie .Mlaiitic. JCarly in December : Hie lle^et Will begiu its veiyage to the I'acilir, and it will number, friends, aiiioiig its formidable figliting craft i.irai'd. This year 1 am happy to sayjthom and to secure justice for them, 'ili;>i W'- .shall beiiiii a'which I |SO that Hiey may not be alternately pampered and opiiressed. The propo­ siti need be dreaded only by those corporations which do not wish to obey the law or to- be ce>ntrolled in just fasliion. but prefer lo take their chances under the present lack of all system and to court the chance of getting improper favors as offsetting the chance of being blackmailed—an attitude rendered familiar in the past by those corporations which had thriven under' certain corrupt and lawless city governments. Railroad Control. The first need Is to exercise this Federal control In thoroughgoing and efficient fashion over the railroads, which, bocaiisc of ihelr imcullar posi- tlem. offer the most immediate and urgent problem. The American peo- I»Ie abhor a vacuum, and are determined TL . i'M'ir.'e great battleships namad. resiiec- part of H wrier 'or ''^•'•'•^' """«'^' »»<^ .

To do so It Is concern itself only and which can somewhere: it is most unwise for the railroads not to recognize this and to submit lo it as the first requisite of the situation. Wlien this control is exercised in .some such fashion as It is now exercised over the national banks, there will be no falling off In business pros|)erlty. On tho contrary, the chances for the average man to do better will be Increased. Undoubtedly there will bo much less opiKTtu- nlty than at present for a very few individuals not of the most scrupulous type to amass great fortunes by speculating in and manipulating 'securities which are issned without any kind of control or supenrlslon. But} ONE ON THE CUSTOMER. A rather amusing story is told on a man who went into a hardware store of a neighboring town and wished lo purchase an axe, says an Ohio paper. Being sliown tlic articlo and informed that the price was $1.15, he said: "WJiy, I can got that same kind of an axo from a mailorder house for !»0 cants." "Very well," said the hardware man, "I will give it to you lor the same price i)rovided you will do the sam». with 'rac as you would do with Iht-m." "All riglit," replied the customer, as he handed over a dollar bill, the merchant giving him back ten cents in change. "Now," said the bardwaro man, I want 25 cents more to pay express charges." which the purchaser gave him. "How much did your axe cost you?" "One dollar and fifteen cents," the man answered. "Very good; now give me five cents more for money order fees and postage," which the purchaser had to hand over. "Now;, how much did your axe cost you." "One dollar and twenty ceiils." said the customer.
