In military circles them Is consid
erable discussion as to whether Ger

preparation for war is all abandoned
in one universal desire for peace. It
would seem that with all the wretched

It is amusing enough to be pathetic
to notice how solicitous the republi
can politicians are that the democrats
properly conduct affairs In the next
congress when they will have control
of the house. The best thing the re
publicans can do is to attend to their
own knitting and make this present
session of congress a "hummer" in
the achievement of constructive legis
lation for the general welfare.

On his recent Boventy-llfth birthday

prouder of his schools than anything

Carnegie seems to be able to Judge
pretty shrewdly as to the relative val

have been a good Investment. They
are centers of Influence for good In
numerous small places , but there Is
more civilization In a school like the
Carnegie Institute In Plttsburg than
In ninny libraries. Mr. Carnegie could
not do better than to fix his mind on

I It Is one of the anomalies of Amur
i lean politics that the congress electo'i '
| by the people in November of this
year will not take Its seat until a y i > .i
from next December. We talk aboui
the "voice of the people , " but It ! t-
not heard until thirteen months nftci
It has been expressed. Such antiquated
machinery as this ought to be taker
out in the national back yard and lit
erally hacked to pieces. The countrj
at the recent election chose a congress
gross with a majority of fifty demo
prntn In the house. Why shouldn't

The widely reported accounts of ed

their education in college , some are

honorable callings , While 112 of flu

This Is as good a record as othei

The news from the front that the
