The prompt ratification by the sen

that the continued Instigation of sus

source in Europe where some foreign
power would profit from a clash be

and Hobsons who are always crying

THE ONLY "REAL THING. "
Mr. Friday has told us that ho is
the only real mayor that over held
office In Norfolk. No other mayor
ever did anything for the city. And
wo must all admit that Mr. Friday
has done things that no other mayor
ever undertook to do ho has abused
the office of mayor In moro ways
than all the other mayors put together
could ever have thought of.
No other mayor over was so puffed
up with his own importance as to
make a speech In the city council ,
bragging about his achievements and
belittling the work of his predeces
sors ; no other mayor of Norfolk ever
so lowered the dignity and BO dis
graced the responsibility of his office
as to publicly attack a new enter
prise seeking to locate here ; no other
mayor of Norfolk over acted In open
hostility to the Commercial club of
the city , attacking It by Innuendo and
refusing to hold membership In it
with other business men : no other
mayor ever attempted to give work
( as the Htnndplpo painting ) to an out
sider at a higher prlco than n homo
man was glad to do It for ; no other
mayor over had the nerve to ask a
fourth term In office , clinging to the
position with n persistence that has
not yet been satisfactorily explained
hi Mr Friday's case ; and no other
mayor wan ever so paper to have the
city spend such large sums of money
as Mr. Friday has asked the city to
spend under his supervision.
THE COST OF A COLD.
People who arc miserable In the
early spring weather from colds may
perhaps console themselves with the
reflection that the cold caught by Caruso
ruse , the tenor , February C , has al
ready cost him $10,000 and will cost
him $10,000 moro.
For millions of people , however ,
his common malady Is a personal die-
omfort and an Interruption of work
nvolving relatively just as much loss.
The worst of It Is , that no matter

Mr. Ballinger announces that he will
prosecute his accusers and that the
ruth regarding him shall be known.
An open investigation , 'such as this
prosecution would seem to promise ,
ivill perhaps be the only means of ever
setting the true status of the ex-secre
ary before the public. With his en
emies on the one hand painting him In
such untrustworthy colors and with
resident Taft on the other upholding
him as an honest and much abused
man and official , the ordinary citizen
has a pretty hard proposition to deter
mine the justice of the case in his own
mind. So the libel action ought to
help clear things up and set the case
ilown In its true light for historical
On the whole , the opinion of the
president ought to be more acceptable
than that of Mr. Ballinger's enemies.
In naming an enthusiastic supporter
of Pinchot as the new secretary of the
nterlor , the president has drawn the
Pinchot fangs and put up to his fac
tion the responsibility of the office
which proved so burdensome to Mr.
"UNCLE JOE. "
Though we may not all agree with
Uncle Joe" Cannon in all of bis
opinions , the fact remains that there's
something about the old man who
has just stepped down and out of the
speaker's chair in the bouse of repre
sentatives after so long a service , that
can but attract the keen admiration
of the average American.
Despite his ago Uncle Joe is still
a vigorous fighter , as all who have
clashed with him have had opportun
ity to observe. Ho Is gameness to the
very last and his staying qualities In
a battle , his unflinching nerve and
his flashes of quick wit and homely
wisdom make him a picturesque fig
ure in American life who will be
missed when the next congress opens
and Champ Clark takes the speaker's
Few men in public life have been

he has stood his ground with unfail

attacked in the house as a "czar , '
there was something good about the
lusty cheer that went up Saturday
when , in answer to the Kentuckian
who said ho wished Cannon were a
younger man , intimating that he'd re
sort to fists ff he were , Uncle Joe
flashed back his defiance , declaring
ho wouldn't take advantage of his age
Uncle Joe is down and out , so far
as the speakership Is concerned. Ho
goes down with the republican party's
control of the house. Ho has been
termed an unreasonable czar , but after
tor all ho only followed the rules o
the house as they had been laid down
many years before ho came Into hi

MITCHELL DRIVEN OUT.
John Mitchell , the former head of
ho United Mine Workers , seems to
mve committed the sin of consorting
uid dining too much with the million-
ilres , in connection with his work as
hnlrman of the trade agreement de-
mrtment of the National Civic federa-
ion. At least so the socialists think ,
and the Mine Workers have , forced
him out of the federation.
Of course one must have sympathy
or the blind helpless rage often dls-
> layei by the under dog , at the In-
ranched arrogance of wealth. Feei

himself but the slightest cog in a stu-
tendons machine. The mechanism

ompelled to travel one narrow circle ,
while others outside lead on the dance

whom fortune has cast her gifts.
But few advances In life are achiev
ed by those who merely seek to tear
down those who are higher up. The

The Civic Federation , at Its 1010
neeting , showed its aims and attitude
by considering such subjects as pro-
ection of children , compensation to
working men for accidents , consorva-
, ion of resources , speedy litigation.
The makeup of the committee that
nvestlgated municipal ownership
show its methods. There were but
three men representing corporations.
Two were city officials. Nine were
rom callings like newspaper work ,
college professors , etc. The labor
union men , six in number , were the
argest single group. The whole com-
: nittee must have been very friendly

Such an Influential body is a vast
engine of social progress. If n man
ike Mitchell could have been permit-
: ed to remain in it , he might have
turned Its efforts still more forcibly in
behalf of the toiler.
A PROGRESSIVE PLATFORM.
At the city election which comes
within a month , candidates for office
should be elected who are enthused
and inspired by the possibilities that
are now opening for a better and
greater Norfolk. The city is now at
a crucial stage in its career and It
needs a city government more the next
two years than ever before that will
put a spirit of progress and enterprise
nto its transactions , because largely
upon the attitude of the administra
tion will depend whether we will make
the long strides necessary to take our
position as the commercial center of
a vast territory to which our geograph
ical location entitles us. There should
bo prominently written into the plat
form of those who are to become a
part of the administration for the next
two years , declarations for the up
building of Norfolk that are certain
and unequivocal. Among these should
