The recent message of President
It 3sevelt has evidently "raised Cain"
with the republican family. A contest
;si milar to that in the democratic ranks
o.'r silver in 1896, is predicted.
Tilt eollectorship is still puzzling the
ft'ohra ska delegation in congress. No
agreement was reached Saturday, and
an adjournment of the "-rraf t dispesers"
wj ; taken to Wednesday of this week.
It is nw believed that both Hammond
an 1 P. )se will have to side-step for an
TiiG president's message should be
co.r.mended by the toiling millions in the
west from the fact that it contains ma v
reiterations of the gentleman from Ne
IvMsVa, who will be the democratic
sl.indard-bearer in the ensuing cam
pa in, whose name is a household word
throughout the entire land.
Congressman Norris has stirred up
a good sized bunch of trouble in his dis
trict by that attempt of his to be funny
the other day in congress. The resolu
tion was not only a slap at Bryan but it
was also a whack at Teddy's month, and
the president's admirers are hot about
it. It is dangerous to get funny, sometimes.
Despite the character his eulogists
accord him as a man of action, Mr.
Roosevelt is given a good deal more to
talking than to doing. And pretentious
threats to do things may readily cause
trouble that would never come if action
took the place of threat. Positive ac
tion gives a chance of defense to the
party threatened, whereas for mere
words there is ofttimes no defense.
It appears from the records that the
President's objections to stock gam
bling did not stop efforts to rush the
Treasury surplus to Wall street when
much of it might have been saved by
the proposed closing of the Stock Ex
change, to prevent which "disgrace" to
Wall street millions were rushed to the
floor by the same panic managers who
were in touch with the Treasury and
the White House.
The results from the panic, so far, has
not seriously disturbed the farmers. In
fact, with the exception of fat hogs, the
markets for all kinds of farm products
have been exceptionally good, but the
laboring man is the ieilow that is
"gett ing it in the neck" now. All over
the east and in all industrial cities come
the daily reports of reduction of em
ployes and a reduction in wages and
hours of those who are fortunate to find
employment. What excuse can the re
publicans put up for this state of affairs
during campaign? It looks as if they
would have some pretty hard nuts to
crack. But you need not fear, they will
try to concoct some scheme to pull the
wool over the eyes of the voter. These
conditions have arrived just in time for
the people to begin to do a little think-
themselves Deiore casting tneir votes
for the trust party candidate for presi
dent next fall.
Short Items of Interest, From Mon
day Evening's Daily Journal
-, ,. V'jfj
N't?.. Bryan speaks for all democrats
in demanding full publicity for contribu
ti'Mi.? to campaign funds. Patriotic con
AJ'ibu lions made and used only for right
ani lawful purposes will honor those
-who make them. Money contributed
-siiivl u?ed to coi-rupt the ballot ought to
h ive the full publicity on the jail records
its contributions deserve.
"FitOM recent reports from Washing
ton it appears that "graft dispensers"
Barkettand Brown, will succeed in their
efforts in having that grand old soldier,
Captain Palmer, removed from the post
ofTice at Omaha. Nocharges have been
preferred against Captain Palmer, and
the only reason why the two senators
demand his removal is to give the place
to one their pets.
Congressmen Henswhaw and Norris
will have the fight of their lives for re
eomination, from reports from their
respective districts, all because they fa
vored and took the salary grab. What
Mi Congressman Pollard do? We all
know that he accepted the "tainted
emr.ey." but did he favor "the grab?"
The voters of the Third district will
want to know all about this matter be
fore they will consent to his return to
coi-Tess again.
The assassination of the King and
Crown Prince of Portugal sends a shud
der of horror around the civilized world
and arouses genuine sympathy for the
Queen-mother whose husband and elder
son fell dying at her feet while the sec
ond of her offspring lay twice wounded.
That she escaped the rain of bullets
which almost wiped out the royal family
seems miraculous. That she tried to
sacrifice her own life to preserve her
children is only another illustration of
the divinity of true motherhood whether
in palace or cottage. But apart from
the human side of the tragedy students
of the rise and fall of dynasties will read
a lesson which again emphasises the fact
that the day of autocratic rule is past.
By abruptly abolishing the parliament
and establishing a dictatorship, King
Carlos fanned the flames of a popular
discontent and aggravated the opposi
tion to such an intense degree that he
was practically a prisoner in the hands
of his loyal guards for fear that he
would meet some such fate as befell
him. Had he pursued less drastic meas
ures in his attempt to govern his people
there probably would have been no in
centive to lead an inflamed mob to such
a deplorable tragedy.
District Attorney Jerome's pas
sionate abuse of Thaw in his closing
speech has nothing to do with the merits
of the case. Assuming that the defend
ant's guilt deserves the supreme penal
ty of the law, the habit many prosecu
ting attorneys have of abusing defend
ants with passionate intensity is merely
a result of precedent, going back to
JSngland in the Middle Ages, when the
attorneys for the crown abused defend
ants accused of treason with animosity
fierce enough to show their own loyalty
and win promotion' at court. In acting
this long line of precedents, Jerome

Neighborhood Favorite
Mrs. E. D. Charles of Harbor, Me.,
speaking of Electric Bitters, says: "It
if a neighborhood favorite here with
us." It deserves to be a favorite ev
erywhere. It gives quick relief in dys
pepsia, liver complaint, kidney derange
ment, malnutrition, nervousness, weak
ness and general debility. Its action on
the blood as a thorough purifier makes
it especially useful as a spring medecine.

Tin only departura we shall make from medical ethics in the conduct of
Peruna arairs in ths future, is the fact that we shall continue to advertise and
sell o ir product TO THE PEOPLE.
If we would agree to sell to doctors only, to advertise for doctors only,
thn tha medical fraternity would be obliged to recognize Peruna a being
entirely within their approval.
7e shall continue to offer Peruna to the people. We shall continue to
convey to the people our claims for Peruna as a household remedy. We shall
continue to supply the people with free literature, teaching them how to use
our modicine, teaching them how to avoid disease, teaching them many things
of benefit to the home. We shall continue to do this, whether the medical
profession like it or not.
We are proposing from this time on to take the public into our confidence.
Notwithstanding that some imitators and substitutors will be attempting to
put up something which they consider just as good as Peruna, we are going to
draw aside the veil of secrecy and allow any one who chooses to know exactly
This ought to disarm all honest criticism. We expect, however, that crit

success of Peruna will continue to find
fault. But we are determined to give
such people no just complaint.
It has become a household word in
millions of homes. Our faith in the
remedy is stronger than ever. Every

Peruna has cured thousands of people of chronic catarrh, in many phases

We are determined to beat our opponents by being fairer than they are,
by dealing squarer than they dare to. We are determined to meet falsehood
with truth, duplicity with candor, insincerity with sincerity.

that the dealers in Peruna will applaud our course. We expect even our op
