Washington, July 12. (Special cor
respondence.—Democratic leaders in
congress find little consolation in a
review of election figures in the so
called "doubtful” states. With repub
licans and progressives united and
working in harmony, it is little wonder
they view the outlook with despair.
The combined votes of these two par
ties is enough to give democrats the
cold shivers. For instance, in Indiana
in 1912, the republicans and progres
sives vote was 313,274, while the demo
cratic vote was 281,890. In Illinois, 640.

Ohio. 506.393 against 432,152 democra
tic; Michigan. 369,828 against 150,751
democratic; Minnesota, 193.190 against
11*6,426 democratic; Nebraska, 127,124
against 109, 109 democratic; Iowa 281,
51*4 against 183,376 democratic; New
York, 845,440 against 655,476 democrat
ic; New Jersey, 234,245 against 173,289
democratic. This is what Wilson
leaders are up against and they know
The way some of the leading demo
crats, most of them from the south,
opposed aid to the families of soldiers
who enlisted for service in Mexico,
caused considerable unfavorable com
ment about the capitol. The fact that
men prominent in that party in the
senate succeeded in defeating the
proposition occasioned no end of dis
cussion. Many republicans have been
heard to express the view that it ia
i he duty of this nation to care for
the wives and children of the soldiers.
They say that it is cheaper than main
alning a great standing army and that
the humane act is an encouragement
to the volunteer to enlist.
Senatoi Gallinger, of New Hamp
shire, nipped in the bud a scheme lu
boost the salaries of some of the at
torneys, special agents and examiners
in the recently organized Federal
Trade Commission. Under the leader
ship of Senator Hollis, a democrat, a
plan was on foot to raise the pay ol
these assistants from $5,000 a year tc
$7,500 which would have caused the
reduction of the small-salaried clerks
in order to get the money to boosl
these well-paid attorneys. Senatoi
Gallingersaid: “If larger salaries are
given to the lawyers of the commis
sion, certain other employees drawing
smaller salaries would of necessity bt
dismissed, because it is not proposed;i
to Increase the appropriaton. It has i
been the custom in this body for sena- i
tors to make appeals for those draw
ing small salaries and not for those i
drawing large salaries, and I was i
quite surprised to hear the sugges
tion made by the mover of this
amendment." The proposition was
voted down by a vote of 43 to 28, and
thus another democratic "economy"
proposition fell by the way-side.
Nearly every republican senator and
member of congress is receiving the
most encouraging reports from the
people "back home” relative to tii
! outlook for party success at the com
ing elections. Letters and personal
j visits from constituents tell of many
! voters who supported Wilson four
I years ago who will vote for Justice
I Hughes this fall. Word oalso comes o:

i former progressives to the republican
I The attempt of the present adminis
tration to muzzle the periodical press
'of the country by placing in the hands
of the Postmaster General power to
| put almost any magazine out of busi
ness by sending it by freight, has been
' given its quietus in the senate, and an
other un-American proposition foster
ed by the present postoffice depart
ment has been snuffed out by proper
publicity and the showing up of the
offensive provision proposed in the
postoffice bill. ,
May, 1916. found us at the full tide
of our war-order prosperity. During
the eleven months ended in May our
exports totaled $3,867,000,000, imports,
‘$1,951,000,000, favorable balance oi
! trade, $1,916,000,000, to which should
' be added millions of dollars formerly
1 spent by our tourists abroad who have
1 lately betrayed a cordial desire to seo
“America first.” Everytime a demo
cratic politician sees a laborer or a
farmer with a dollar in his fist h.
climbs a tree and yells “prosperity!
Then he slides down and takes away
one-tenth of that dollar by way of
taxes. The democrats are trying to
claim credit for the transitory pros
perity which we receive from the Eu
ropean war. Meanwhile they are dc
| vising 57 varieties of taxation to make
up for the deficiencies of their tar i
bill as a customs revenue producer,
'and at the same time the evils result
ing from ther blundering legislation
and inefficient administration are laid
!to the foreign fracas. The best proof
of their crass stupidity is that they
actually believe the people are addlo
| pated enough to believe them. The
war temporarily restored our prospeii
,ty. The w*ar is not to blame for demo
! cratie mismanagement.

leficiency appropriation of $25,000,

militia and other immediate military
preparations. The army approprta
ion bill has now gone to the senate
where the military committee has al

100. In the senate, the program of the
general naval board has been agreed
to by the naval committee and is like
ly to be adopted by congress. This
calls for an appropriation of $315,
S36.843 in 1917, and contemplates a
total expenditure of $538,180,576 'or
construction in the next three years.
The impetus given to preparedness is,
in our opinion, one of the most un
fortunate things about the whole un
fortunate Mexican situation. A for
eign policy about which the people
have not had a word to say is shaping
our domestic affairs. This shows that
until the people have something to say
about the foreign relations of the
country they really will not have con
trol of their government. —Nebraska
''One or the reeeut interesting-dis
cussions that has been on, is the
proposition to change the number of
months in each year from twelve to
thirteen. The plan as proposed would
make each month have exactly four
weeks. This would give thirteen
months in the year of four weeks each
and one day over; the extra day, it is
proposed to assign to New e\ars'
Day, not incorporating it in any month
and it being a universal holiday, it
would not interrupt the business lines
that would be followed under the new
With thirteen months of four weeks
each and the odd day se aside with
out reference to any month as New
Years’ Day. there would still Ve 'ett
unaccounted for, the odd minutes and
seconds that go to make up the com
plete year. These minutes and sec
onds would accumulate enough to
make another day in something over
four hundred years and if the new
calendar were adopted, it would have
to provide for leap year once in four
hundred years instead of once every
four years as at present. Leap year
as we have it at the present time,
would be wiped out and it would only
be once in four centuries that the ex
tra day would have to be accounted
for in the calendar.
The new plan is more of a scien
tific plan than the present division
of the year into months, and in this
way, there is much force In the argu
ment for the change. With thirteen
months for the year, and exactly four
weeks to the month, the first day of
the month would always fall on the
same day of the week. The first day
of each month would probably be
fixed on Sunday as the first day of
the week. Sunday would always be
the first of the month, and every
month would be shortened to twenty
eight days. This would, on monthly
salaries, involve sore ^adjustment
in business. It would involve a read
justment on loans but there would be
a tremendous advantage in the even
time that would cover all transac
tions. There would be no months with
odd days or even days and there would
be a multitude of complication in figur
ing time that would be obviated
through the even months of four
weeks each.
It would not be on the whole, diffi
cult at all to adjust affairs of very
kind and character to the thirteen
months a year basis. After the ad
justment was made, there would be a
certain amount of satisfaction as well
as larger convenience through always
having equal months.
While the discussion is on concern
ing the setting of the clock ahead =.n
hour, why not discuss the more ';n
portant and more scientific project
of making thirteen mouths a year in
stead of twelve months? The advanc
ing of time an hour a day would un
doubtedly be advantageous in the
long day period of the year, providing
it was universally accepted. There
would be no advantage in it in the
short days of the year and for that
reason, it would not be an tlll-the
year improvement. The changing of
the months to even periods of four
weeks each, would be advantageous
all the time. It could be universally
accepted in every line of business
without great disturbance and once
changed, would be so much more sat
isfactory that there would be no dis
position to ever revert to the old fra<>
tional method of days in a month that
we follow now in order to have simply
twelve months in the year . The
difference would be entirely optional
between twelve months or thirteen
months making up a year, and the
separation of the odd day. the setting
aside of New Year's day, without
reference to any month, would be no
Inconvenience or interruption and at
the same time it would emphasise
that day and its observance as the
commencement of a new yeur and
thd marking c* a new period of time.

My, oh my, how the democratic
newspapers now hate Teddy Roose
velt because through his leadership
the progressive party has dissolved
and the republican party stands solidly
united. And three short weeks ago
Roosevelt, in the estimation of these
newspapers, was a real darling dear.
That was when they believed, hoped
and urged that he be the progressive
candidate for president and thereby
aid in keeping the republican party
divided. Strange how a man's worth
can dwindle—in the estimation of
democratic newspapers—but demo
cratic newspaper estimation of a re
publican never amounted to much any
way. When a democratic newspaper
takes to praising a republican leader
then it is time for Wilson to believe
everything Carranza tells him.—Ex.
Uncle Sam is about to dip into the

it seems to us, us congress ever has
passed. We <*an see no good reason
why the federal government should
have anything to do with roads In the
states, aside front furnishing informa
tion. The people must pay the bill—•
federal aid is not a gift—and for the
most part by a system of taxation
that is even less equitable than the
general property tax by which state 1
and local revenue are raised. Just '
at this time especially, when treasury 1
olTicials are talking about a bond is- 1
sue to replenish the national money 1
chest, it seems most inappropriate to 1
make large expenditures of federal ‘
funds for work that belongs properly '
to the states and counties.
Worse than the fiscal features of
federal aid to road building, however,
is the centralization of road authority.
Talk about centralization of road au
thority ut the state capitol—that is
nothing to the centralization caused
by this bill. No road into which a *
dollur of federal funds goes can be
built until the plans have been sub- t
mitted to, and approved by, the secre
