Democratic editors are not very boisterous in their criticism of the presidential message. It was one of the ablest state communications ever received by con- jgress from the chief executive. The American Protective Tariff League now has in print and will soon issue a Complete protection text book entitled "American Tariffs from Plymouth Bock to McKinley." Every republican should have a copy oif the book for purposes of reference, , The Republican Temperance Guard of Massachusetts will endeavor to push a bill through the next legislature of that state requiring all saloon keepers to sell liquor only to parties who take food on the premises. If the bill is passed it will probably have the effect of enormously increasing the number of gluttons in democratic districts. The Sanborn Pioneer gives Us opinion in regard to "what ought to be done" as follows: One thing is sure; the demo crats claim toe victory, and to the victor belongs the responsibility. Republicans c» not be expected to take the initiatory ftepfl. When it is proven that th« demjj- cr«,ts cannot or will not do anything it ,i • A, . « ;, fe*&& A news item in the daily papers last week read as follows: "Every saloon in 1 Paso, Texsas, was closed yesterday by the county attorney, acting under instructions from Gov. Hogg." Gov. Boies told the people of Algeria last fall that the governor had no more power to secure ,he enforcement of law than any private jitizen. If that is so we would like to see the Governor of Iowa invested with some of the power of the Governor of Texas. Alexander Hamilton one of the earliest and greatest financiers this country ever produced, and one of the earliest -advocates of protection, once said, and the saying is as true now as it was then. '•But though it were true that the immediate and certain effect of regulations controlling the competition .of foreign with domestic fabrics was an increase of price, it is universally true that the contrary is the ultimate effect with every successful manufacture." It is the result which will be accomplished in the long run which should be considwtA. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report. ABSOLUTELY PURE Elmer Taylor of the Traer Star-Clipper administers a gentle rebuke to the Dysart Reporter for running a patent medicine advertisement in its editorial columns. The Star-Clipper says: '-The leading editorial in the Dysart Reporter of last week reads as follows: "Do you fearo neuralgia, lame back, pain in the side, sore throat, sprains, soreness of the chest?" No, none of these troubles afflict us. Wo have a small wart on the north finger of the right hand and are threatened with a corn on the left foot. Will the philosopher of the Reporter tell us how to escape from the torments to come? Tomorrow John Greenleaf Whittier will be 84 years old. Aside from Oliver Wendall Holmes America will not have a poet left when Whittier is dead. Holmes is an old man also, and the best works of his life have been written. Where will we turn to find one great American poet when Holmes and Whittier are gone? It is a melancholy reflection, The early history of the present century is full of the names of eminent men who nave given dignity to American letters. Longfellow, Lowell, Bryant and Poe, with Whittier and Holmes; a greater group of American poets will never again live contemporaneously with each other. Of this bright galaxy of literary minds Holmee and Whittier are left alone. Their deaths will mark the close of an era in American Utgrajure, Jujt written «letter of "I congratulate you on having climbed another glacier and crossed another crevasse in your .ascent of the white sum-; mit which already begins to see the* coming twilight of the coming century. A life so well filled as yours has been cannot be too long for your fellow men and women. In their affections you are secure, whether you are with them here or near them in some higher life than theirs. I hope your years have not become a burden, so that you are tired of living. At our age we must live chiefly in the past. Happy is he who has a past like yours to look back upon. It is one of the felicitous incidents—I will not say accidents—of my life that the lapse of time has brought us very near together, so that I frequently find myself honored by seeing my name mentioned in near connection with you now. We are lonely, very lonely, in these last years." NOT SO BAD AFTER ALL. The Newspaper Reports as'to the Extent of Mr. Daniels' Defalcation Higrhly Exaggerted. West Bend Journal: Our usually quiet town hap been in throes of excitement the past weekr caused by the sudden disappearance of T- M, Paniels. Tlie talk of the town has been fed to a certain extent by the untruthful and highly exaggerated reports of the affair that have been sent broadcast over the country by the daily papers. Very little truth and a great deal of wild rumor has been contained in all the accounts of the affair coming under our notice. The facts in the case, as nearly as can. be ascertained at this writing are these: Mr. Daniels had been gambling quite frequently during the summer and fall and had been using the lumber company's money for his own private uses, He had lost large sums Of money in this way, andwattsr* w.ere M*** •5*^™ interest in the stock of the company, so that he might be in a position to stave off an investigation. But as he failed in this attempt, there remained nothing for him to do but take what money he could collect in a few days and seek new pastures. This he did and the amount of his collecting was not very large. The stories in the papers saying that he skipped out with from $12,000 to $15,000 and owing personal accounts of nearly as much more, are such that they must almost make Daniels wish to appear before their authors and accuse them of malicious falsehoods. Of course an exact statement of the amount of money Daniels squandered and took away with him cannot be given, but enough is known to make an estimate possible, and this could be given if it were the bestpolicy to do so. The amount is not very heavy and the West Bend lumber company will weather the flurry in ship shape we hope, an*j go on to a prosperous business career. T. M. Daniels possessed fine business abilities. He was sharp, keen and not over scrupulous in many things. He had prospects such, as but few men enjoy, and had he stood on honesty of purpose, left bad habits and degrading associations severely alone, might have been one of the most influential and successful business men in the northwest. It is strange to contemplate that a man with prospects so flattering would permit himself to go astray bringing dishonor upon his name, leaving a lasting disgrace upon his family, and destroying one's confidence in humanity. The lesson of T. M. Daniels should be taken as a terrible warning to any others who niay be permitting themselves to form questionable habits for it ia but one irj a hundred who can break away from sjieh when once they have been firmly' bound. No effort has been made as yet to bring him back and perhaps none will be. His associates In business are well rid of him, and did not the welfare of CQmmuQ$i£8 demand it, it would be the bett^ jielicy to allow bits to keep in bid* JJ§ has turned mHi ^upsoi tbe J. H.
