FACTS THAT WORRY WILSON
“I tell you,” said the Gover
nor of New Jersey, as reported
1 y Mr. William Bayard Halo in
The World’s Work, ‘‘the people
of this state and this country are
determined to take over the con
trol of their own politics. We
are going to cut down the jun
gle in which corruption lurks. We
are going to drag things into the
light, break down private under
standings and force them to be
public understandings. We mean
to have the kind of government
we thought we had.
“If this doesn’t, work, why
then we shall have to try the
initiative and r eferendum. Be
lieve in it? Certainly I do. I
haven’t the slightest fear of its
disturbing our theory of represen
tative government. T don't wor
ry about theories anyhow; it is
facts that worry me. The fact
is, we in New Jersey have at
present little more than the theo

have tried it, the initiative and
referendum has given them hack

A SPORTY PASTOR.
In tho earyl days of Topeka
the First Baptist church called
to its pastorate au athletic gentle
man of French-Canadian exl-ac
tion, whose name sounded like
Bajoic. This preacher delighted
in all sorts of manly sports, such
as baseball boxing, rowing and
fencing. Ilis study was fitted up
with a full equipment of the par
aphernalia necessary for boxing
bouts, fencing bouts, etc.
One day one of tbe church eda
cons called on the pastor and
found him taking his daily ex
treme with a punching bag. The
deacon appeared more or less
shocked, but the minister began
an enthusiastic defense of this
“Now,” he said, “Brother Dea
eon. this is a most healthful and
manly exercise. Simply because
it lias been abused in certain
eases is no reason why its good
effects should be lost to good
church people. It not only de
' velops the muscles and helps the
circulation of the blood, but it
trains the mind and eye. It
teaches you to think quickly.
Just put on the gloves with me,
brother, for a friendly bout. 1
will show you some of the sci
ence of it.”
Tlie deacon reluctantly con
sented at last to put the gloves
on and placed himself in the at
; titude of offense and defense as
shown him by the pastor.
“Now, brother,” said the pas
tor, “watch my eye. The eye
tells where the hand is going to
strike. Bay no attention to the
hand. But watch my eye, and
watch it closely.”
The deacon said: “Well, pas
tor, you will not strike hard?”
“Oh, no,” said the pastor, “I
will be very careful about that.
Now, when you see me make a
pass at your head, sidestep—
duck—also use your right and
left guard. All ready! ”
Then the pastor commenced to
move his hands with lightning
rapidity. The deacon evidently
became confused and forgot the
instructions about watching the
eye, and the muscular paftor.
warming up to the excitement of
the sport, forgot the promise he
had made about being easy. He
let out with a straight righthan
der which caught the deacon in
the eye. The deacon's head hit
the floor on the other side of the
room. It was some little time be
fore he recovered consciousness
and waked up to find the pas
tor pouring water in his face.
The pastor was profuse in his
apologies, but the deacon did not
appear to he at all satisfied. He
put on his hat in a dazed man
ner and left the study. In about
five minutes his eye was closed
<ntirely and a discoloration was
appearing all around it. For two
or three days he was very much
annoyed with embarrassing ques
tions and at the next meeting of
the church board he arose in his
place and said:
“Brethren, I do not know
what you think about it, but so
far as I am concerned I prefer
to have a man for pastor who
has more grace and less muscle.”
The other deacons took the
matter under advisement, but did
not vote to dismiss the pastor at
that time. Later on, however, the
pastor’s love for fast horses got
him into trouble. There was a
race meet in Topeka and the
pastor, who had purchased a fast
trotter, entered his nag. The
church deacons were considerab
ly horrified to learn that the
pastor, in the garb of a driver,
was speeding his horse around
the track in competition with the
other trotters. They decided that
he was a little too sporty for
them, and at the next meeting of
the church board his relations as

ATTEMPTED RAPE ON LITTLI
Robert Sutton Charged With
From Suturdty’s Daily.
Feeling against Robert Sutton,
a painter in the employ of Bob
Drake, was roused to the high
est pitch last evening, when it
was noised around that he had
attempted to commit a rape up
on the person of the little 9-vear
old daughter of Los Leeds. Ac
cording to the account of the
affair given the Tribune reporter,
it occurred as follows:
Sutton was employed as a
painter on the Leeds house, and
yesterday afternoon, when the
little girl returned home from
school, lie took her to the barn,
and committed, or attempted to
commit the crime. Her sister
returned about ten minutes la
ter, and ran screaming to the
home of a neighbor, who return
ed with her to the Leeds house
and demanded to know what Sut
ton had done to the little girl.
Sutton made no reply, hud shed
his painting clothes in a hurry
and hiked for the country.
Sheriff Fenton and the city po
lice force mustered all the autocs
they could, and started in pur
suit. Sutton was caught about
six miles south of town, at the
Paul Shulenbcrg place, and was
brought to town and lodged in
In the evening a crowd of
about five hundred people gath
ered about the court house, and
talk of serving Sutton as Lillis
was served could be freely heard
on every hand. Accordingly,
■sheriff Fenton and chief of po
lice Aldrich removed the prisoner
from the jail, placed him in an
auto and took him to Humboldt,
catching a train from there to
Lincoln, where the prisoner was
placed for safe keeping.
This is the second affair of
the kind within a few months,
and public sentiment is strong
ly aroused. While it is freely
admitted on all sides that the
law will probably take the proper
course and punish the guilty, it
is doubtful if it will be allowed
to do so in case tbc people get
their hands onto the culprit.
Such a crime is the most awful
in the annals of our country, and
who will not eveincc some feel

be their daughter next, are very

will have a just and speedy trial,

SPECIAL TO THE DAILY
Current News And Events of Im
portance In Which Ne
During the tariff debate, Mr.
Sloan of Nebraska made a
speech which fairly sparkled with
bright sayings. Mr. Solan at one
palee in Usi speech turned to the
Democrats and said: "You are
the party in power. If we had
not read it in the papers, we
would have heard it hero. 1 lis
tened to all the debates of this
session, and twenty-three gentle
men solemnly referred in orot
und voice to Democracy's being
"instructed with power.” Whe
ther you were intrusted with
power or whether it was simply
taken away from the Republi
cans, and being left around loose
and you happening to be there,
gobbled it, I do not know. You
hove frequently referred to your
large majority and our depicted
ranks. 1 presume the extraor
dinary modesty as to what you
propose to do to us and to the
country is owing to your care
ful consideration of the way that
the people of whom wo have
hoard so much in your speeches,
saw fit to vote.” Referring to
the Canadian erciprocity matter
Mr. Sloan remarked: "Your
hill for which you ask support
is charged on tlisi s ide, and prac
tically admitted on the other, to
lie the means of rederss for the
wrong or damages of the Cana
dian pact. A sort of ‘hush
money’ for the injury committed.
What arc its claims? It will
deprive the Treasury of $10,000,
000 of revenue. That is scarcely
■i virtue. The real claim of every
speaker on that side seems to he
that it will save money for the
farmers; hence it is called ‘the
farmers’ free-list hill’. If it
stands that test, in the interest
of my district I shall vote for
it.” At another stage of his
argument the Congressman ad
vised the Democratic majority
that, if they wanted to do a
‘‘little proselyting” they should
strike out the meat and cereal
schedules, reminding the advo
cates of the bill that these pro
ducts include "nearly 90 per
cent of the northwestern farmers’
annually produced wealth; make
it in deed what you have named
it and you will obtain some as
sistance from this side.” He
continued, ‘‘as it stands now the
farmers’ free list is a misnomer.
‘What’s in a name?’ To para
phrase Iho inspired William, ‘Dog
fennel by any other name would
smell just as loud.’ ” Mr Sloan
asserted that, ‘‘you can remedy
this, and strictly within 1 lie rules
of the game. I appeal to OYasar
for the benefits of the imperial
proceedurc announced at the
Baltimore winter meeting. That
was an event not wnouy iorgoi
ten nor, perhaps, forgiven. T
note that they cut down the
Democratic majority in Balti
more the other day several
thousand on account of it.” The
Congressman asked: ‘‘Who are
we legislatures for? Is it for
America’s industries or is it for
the foreigner and his invest
ments?” Analyzing his own
query he proceeded: ‘‘To make
this matter a littel more concrete,
