THE 00uNT , ,
kindly reference to the 74th an
niversary of the birth of the
present speaker of the house of
repicsentatives. It is a great
body , 392 in number , represent
ing in round numbers 90,000,000
people , with a great area from
the 49th degree of north latitude
down to the southern boundry
and from the Atlantic to the
Pacific , stretching across the
continent almost 3,500 miles ,
with great natural resources ,
the greatest wealth , from the
standpoint of nature , given by
the Almighty to any similar area
on the face of the earth , and we
are especially blessed with a
population that has been grow
ing from one decade to another
since the landing of our forebears
in Virginia and on th6 Massa
chusetts coast. We have been
contributed to from the Caucasian
race by the best that the world
had to contribute , by individuals
coming to the new continent
the Old World , seeking to better
their condition , and under the
hand of necessity to earn their
bread in the sweat of their faces
they have developed , as we hope ,
as we believe , in the grand aver
age the most virile , patriotic ,
and capable population on earth.
Ours is a representatide govern
ment , and as we gather from the
various portions of the republic
representing populations with
different climates and with dif
ferent resources , our constituents
have different direct personal
interests , end we voice our con
"In consideration of legislation
that will bring the greatest good
to the greatest number , we nec
essarily have different views.
Theretore , being virile , to the
best of our ability we seek to
write the views of the constitu
ents we represent upon the
statute books for the common
good. In the clash of interests
we make compromises , and all
legislation of a general nature i
the result of compromise. v\"hile
sometimes there is hot blood and
virile partisanship , after all ,
want to say for the majority side
K of the house and for the minority
side of the house , that we are all
Americans , under our oaths rep
resenting , according to our best
judgment , the respective con
stituencies which have given us
their power of attorney to act for
" /jnd while there are hot words
at times , I feel when , as you
have done , you have halted the
business of the house to reme'm
ber my 74th birthday , which is
away beyond the average of lift-
to man , that you do it in tbe
kindness of your hearts , and thai
however much you may be mis
taken us to my capacity , you
would not do it unless you recog
nized that I walk in the light i f
my best judgment , as you walk in
the light of your est judgmen : .
I thank you " ( Loud applause. )

Just so , when the time comes
for the voters of the Massachu- ,

to be what they ought to be , and
not again what they happened tote
to be at elections to fill uncxpired
terms , Albany Journal.
There is no reason why the
republicans cannot get together ,
adjust their differences and go
ahead to retain control of the
country. As a party , they are
more efficient than their adver
saries and better fitted to carry
on the government , and for these
reasons the people have kept
them in power for many years.
Hryan scores severly the ap
pointment of Hughes. Two
years ago the ablest speaker on
the republican hustings , the one
who most thoroughly analyzed
Bryan and his speeches , was
Hughes. More , even , than the
speeches of Taft did those of
flughes contribute to the dis
comfiture of Bryan. Sioux City
Secretary Knox has made good
in all the responsible offices he
has held , and , judging by what
he has already acomplishcd in
the state department , his ad
ministration ol that great field of
governmental activity , when he
has worked out his plans , will be
worthy of comparison with the
administrations of Secretary Hay
and Secretary Root , both of
which were exceptionally bril-
iant and successlul Rochester
Democrat and Qhronicle.
I here is a pretty vigorous de
mand on the part of people , re
; irdless of party , for the passage
of the legislation mapped out by
Presdent Taft If he bus bor
rowed some of his ideas from the
Democratic , so much the better
for the party. I will give its
orators something tangible to
talk about on the hustings nex
fall. But opposition to the
measures , predicted on such as
tonishing grounds as those' of
Mr. Adamson , will make no
friends for him or his party.
The Villain Still Pursues U.
Some weeks ago some lumber
dealers met in a western city and
said they regretfully must raise
the price of common boards on
account of the Payne tariff , says
the Guthrie ( Okla. ) State Capi
Think of it !
They must raise the price from
50 cent * to $1 a thousand on ac
count of the tariff
When the same law reduced
the tariff on common boards 75
cents a thousand.

The volume of business through
out the country as shown by the
bank clearings to increase. The
indications at the beginning of
.March were fully borne out by
the figures the entire mouth m
which nearly every financial
center of importance showed mat *
crial improvement over March of
a year ago , Total clearings for
the United States according to
the returns of the New York
Chronicle , arc $15,017,000,000 , an
increase of 19 pec cent. This is
the highest March total yet re
corded , and shows that all the
ground lost during the panic has
been made up. The total for
March , 1909 was $12,621,000,000 ;
for 1908 , $9,789,000,000 ; 1907 ,
the previous high record , $4,657-
000,000 ; 1906 , $13,007,000,000 ;
1905 , $12,918,000,000. Early returns -
turns for April show continued
activity. The increase for the
first week amounted to 11 per
cent. Totals for the three
months of the year tell the same
story ; the 1910 figures being $45-
267,000,000 , as compared in 1908
and $41,817,000,000 , the previous
high record , in 1906.
Not a Close Corporation'
The republican party has
been , is not , and never will be ,
a close corporation. It c me into
existence with a general invita
tion to all good citizens to unite
u checking slavery. It has
ever since practiced the policy ot
the open door. In its own ranks
it accents and approves wide
differences of opinion , as long as
they are honest , based on prin
ciple and resting on a determi
nation to support the broad pur
poses of the party.
This is not the policy of the
Democratic line of action. Jeff
erson began and Jackson con
tinued the policy of treating the
Democratic party as a close cor
poration. Wherever it is in un
challenged power it draws the
party line sharply and refuses to
permit dissent. The unit 'rule
prevails in its National conven
tions u der which a majority of
a single vote in a State delega
tion controls absolutely every
vote from the State. The rep
ublican party in , 1876 decided
against this practice and in the
conventions each man from every
State is free to vote as be deems
Democratic Senators at Wash
ington under Democratic train
ing are naturally challenging
independent action in republican
Senators In the democratic
party there would be no room for
"independents" or insurgents.-
There is in the republican party.
Honest differences as to details
and honest agreement as to es
sentials is its principle and
practice Every man in the
republican party can vote for the
/'dtuinisown conscience. No
i \i. can drivi him or boss him
The republican party is united
as to the general policy of Presi
dent Tafl on legislation now
before Congress. Every repub
lican can vote for the Adminis
tration measures and every rep
ublican is free to make every
effort to perfect these measures
they are on passage. This com
bination of criticism within th
party and action with the party
may be strange to Democratic
Senators at Washington but it
is , and always has been good
republican doctrine. Philadel
Verily it is a hard task to
fathom the processes of the Dem
ocratic mind. The only safe
theory seems to be that if there
is a wrong way of going about
anything that is the way the
Democrat is going to adopt.
Witness the performances of
representative Adamson , of
Georgia. Mr. Adamson , anu arc-
est Democrat , is a member of the
House Committee on Interstate
Commerce and in such capacity
he is opposing the President's
As near as can be discovered ,
Mr. Adamson's objections are
based chiefly on the ground that
the bill is an execution of certain
Democratic principles and poli

"The provision as to initiating
an inquiry into the rates and
practices the President borrowed
from the Democratic leaders , "
asserted Mr , Adamson. He also
says ; "The President has bor
rowed froni the Democratic plat
form the suggestion that the
commission may arrest a rate be
fore it goes into effect. "
Naturally the average citizen ,
unversed in Democratic ratioci
nation , will inquire why these
facts should embitter a Democrat
against the bill. It would seem ,
rather , that they should inspire
him to advocate it and and to
lend his influence to its early
adoption. For , surely , measures
urged by the revered Democratic
platform and advocated by the
estimable Mr. Bryan must be
good for the country , even
though an unkind fate has de
creed that they should be ad
