It Is not to bo a house divided ngalus

Ohio has been within seeing distune
of the white house before today mid

In her sons that what has been done
before can be done again.
Taft and Fornker have drawn up In
line of battle for a fight to the finish.
The fray will bo watched with greater
Interest because Secretary Taft Is
known to enjoy ( ho backing of his
executive chief. AH of the political
power of the white house today maybe

clashed with the president severely at

That is Taft's challenge In answer
to a recent challenge from Forakor.

the roar of large-sized guns , and one
which the rest of the country will look

BRYAN STILL FOR OWNERSHIP.
Yes , Mr. Bryan has It. A now Idea ?
No ; no ! Calm yourself , America. , Ji.t
Is just the same old Idea that came
forth on the peerless leader's return
from Europe , when he told the country
In the Madison Square Garden address
that federal ownership of trunk lines
and state ownership of stub roads > wafc
the proper caper. '
It Is apparent tha't the Ncbraskan ,
who Is to ho nominated by democrats
to race once more for the white house ,
intends to put Into the national demd-
cratlc platform , with his heel if nec
essary , the government ownership
plan as a paramount issue. Inconsis
tent as It Is with democratic prin
ciples and ' with economical govern
ment , it is a dramatic nppqal just now
and it is not to die.
Mr. Bryan , In a letter just * sent to
II. M. Whitney , reaffirms his' belief in
the Idea that this Is the solution.
Where the money Is to come from
with which to buy the railroads Is not
apparent ; just how wo are to keep
away from a political machine which
controls more than a million votes in
railway employes , is not yet solved ;
just what would be called trunk lines
and what the stub roads , is another
puzzle ; but government ownership
sounds well and will furnish material
for eloquent address to the downtrod
And meanwhile the statement in
Norfolk's dally newspaper of many
months ago , that the government
ownership movement , backed by the
government ownership club , would
become paramount foe the LJncqln.lte ,
is being exemplified by revelations.

\ynH forced to recognize his Inflitonco
; ind to counteract what th < 5 Hearst
sheet might do for Dunne , ' the Trlb-
mo took a few shotfl nt William Ran
ilolph. Among other things It printed
his extract from Rcot'n speech , which
was delivered by Root with the en
lorsement of President Roosevelt :
"Listen to what President Roosevelt
hlmselt has said of Mr , Hearst IIIK
ils kind. In President Roosevelt's
flrst mcHsagc to congress , speaking of
the assasbln of McKlnloy , ho spoke o
him 'as Inflamed by the reckless utter
ances of those who , on stump , In pub
lie press , appeal to the dark , evil
spirits of malice , greed , envy , am' '
sullen hatred. The wind Is sown by
men who preach such doctrines , nn <
they cannot escape their share of the
responsibility forthe , whirlwind tlm
Ih reaped. This applies alike to the
deliberate demagogue , to the exploiter
of sensationalism , to the crude , foolish
visionary who , for whatever reason ,
apologizes for crlmo , or excites aim
less discontent , "
"I sny , by the president's authority ,
In penning these words , with the horror
ror of President McKlnley'fl murder
fresh before "him , ho had Mr. Hearst
specifically In his mind.
"And I say , by his authority , that
what he thought of Mr. Hearst then
ho thinks of Mr. Hearst now. "
"It Is not calm , lawful redress of
wrongs which ho ( Hearst ) seeks. It
Is the turmoil of inflamed passions and
the terrorism of revengeful force. Ho
spreads the spirit , , he follows he
methods , he is guided by the sefilsh
motives of a revolutionist. Ho wduld
plunge our peaceful land into turmoil ,
discord , and perpetual conlllct out of
w.hlch the republics of South America
happily are now passing.
"The public knows the character of
Mr. Hearst only by the newspapers he
publishes. God forbid we should setup
up lit the hlKh station of governor *
of New York , for the admiration and
niltntlon of our children , a man whose
diameter Is icllected In the columns
if the New York Journal and the Now
"The election of this violent ex-
remlst ( Hearst ) would Inevitably
end to reaction against all true re-
'orm and genuine redress of grlev-
uncos. There Is no enemy of true
reform so fatal as shani reform ; tjiero
is no enemy ot the''Slnrere , faithful

scrupulous wealth so potent as- the
violent extremis . , who drives- good ,
honest , conservative men away from
the Cause of true reform b'v UIQ violence
lence of his words and thq Intemper
ance of his excessive proposals. "
"But the worst of Hearst Is that ,
with his great wealth , with his great
newspapers , with his army of paid
agents , and for his own selfish pur
poses , he has been , day by day and
year by year , sowing the seed of dis
sension , strife , and hatred throughout
our land. He would array , , lcibqr

great mass of our people that kindly ,

brotherhood of citizenship , which is
so essential to the peaceful conduct
of a free popular government. Up
would destroy that respect for law ,
that love of order , that confidence li

Ing class at school and , in a clever
changing of expression in voice and
poise she brought out strikingly the
varied sort of pupils whom the ordi
nary teacher has to deal with.
The Other Speakers.
But the gold medal winners did not
epresent all of the clever or compe
tent readers on the program. It was
really a crowd of rare impersonators
whom that audience listened to and
enjoyed. Clande Fisher of PlainVlew
did clear cut work in the "Fight w'ith
Auroch , " a dramatic piece portraying
the flght between giant bullfighter 'arid '
beast , in which the man ofi muscle
twisted off the animal's neck 'and1 b' '
came the hero/ Clarence Galbraifn'bf '
Beemer held the audience In rapt siTfli1
pense with. "Ono Niche the Highes "
in which was pictured a boy climbing"
up the side of a cliff , unable to climb
down , nearly dropping -300 feet 'to *
death and finally saved by"a rope from
above. It was as good as a 'moving'
picture show. Miss Gvace Olmsted 'dfJ'
Butte , who came more than 100 mil s '
to contest for the hdnors , displayed ti
marked talent'in her rendition of "Tliti
Sioux Chief's Daughter. " Miss Mary
Turek of Pierce drew a strlking' frlc-
ture of a young woman's rebellion (
against the wine cup that had k'llled'
her brother in "Tho Bridal Wine Cup. "
In the humorous class Miss Agnes
Barnes of Battle Crqek deserves very
special mention. She was heard In
"Biddy's Trials With a Yankee , " and
there wore many in the house who
would have rejoiced to see her receive
a medal. Her dialect was perfectly
done and her acting was bewitching.
Miss Harriet Ruslow of Randolph , with
"Tho Ruggleses , " Miss Marie Seidel of
Scrlbner with "Mrs. Puffer's1 Silver
Wedding , " Miss Amber Adams of Til- '
den with "Sho Would Be a Ma'sbn.
Too , " Earl Stilson of Atkinson 'In' "
"Trick vs. Trick , " and Miss Ha'iei
Jones of Hartlngton in "The1 Pudding1 , ' ' " ,
were all capable entertainers
