Will Gather Governors on Way.
It is possible that If tlio populace
gather in Butllclcnt numbers at points
along the route and demand a stop the
governors will accommodate them. It
Is also probable that other governors
will Join the train along the -way.
How could they keep away ? Governor
Teller of I'eunsylvania has sent word
of his Intention to personally escort the
party while passing through his state ,
and It is understood that at the re
ceptions to be given to the governors
in most of the cities the governor of
the state will be on hand to do the
honors. It is needless to assume that
the governor's special Is going to be
welcomed impressively wherever It
stops. There are receptions , dinners ,
banquets , and in some cities the pro
gram of entertainment will include the
presence of the governors at meetings
in large auditoriums , so that their wel
come will be a public one.
For two decades the west has offer
ed its hospitality to visitors from the
east , and the opportunity of recipro
cating will not be overlooked. Assur
ances to that effect have already been
received not only from state and city
ofllclals , commercial clubs and kindred
organizations , but also men prominent
in business and manufacturing. In
other words , the governors will return
the calls that have been made by east
ern visitors , break bread , leave their
cnrds and murmur that they hare had
n perfectly delightful time. Since they
cannot be expected to make a rctum
call on each Individual they will ren
der It n sort of wholesale social func
tion by dropping In on tlio whole state ,
Including all the Inhabitants thereof.

Beating Canada's Game.
Our "Lady of the Snows" has been
casting coquettish eyes at American
farmers. For the American people col
lectively she has not the slightest use.
She rejects their trade agreements
with heavy majorities. But for the
American people Individually she has a

Canada is about the same age and
size as the United States , yet she has
only 7,000.000 people to our 90,000.000.
After spending a large amount of mon
ey on n campaign to promote linralgra-
tlon'her last census was a bitter disap
pointment , being far below the expect
ed figure. The single state of New
York has more Inhabitants than the
whole Dominion. As a population mag
net Canada is a frost.
Yet any kind of proposition will
catch some people , and the Canadian
advertisements got an American farm
er hero and there. Most of these went
from the northwest. Now that section
is doing a little advertising on Its own
hook. By means of land shows and
this trip of the governors It Is giving
notice that there are other gardens of

Invited to the White House.
The tour of the governors was the
suggestion of former Governor James
II. Brady of Idaho , who Is Included in
the party , and the inspiration to him
came from the spirit of co-operation
between the states that has been fos
tered through the Northwestern De
velopment league , n meeting of which
he attended in St. Paul In October , at
which several of the governors were
present. That the governors should
be assembled for the northwestern
land products show at St. Paul , Dec.
12 to 23 , and that most of them de
sired to attend the national rivers and
harbors congress at Washington and
had also been invited to attend the
gathering of southwestern governors
at Baltimore suggested the feasibility
of the idea that they should all go to
gether in a party , which was strength
ened by the approval of President Taft
on his western trip , who added a
formal Invitation for the governors to
visit him at the White House.
Added to all this was the practicable
phase that the governors' trip could
bo made to emphasize In an impres
sive and dlgnllled way the prosperity
of the entire northwest and Its great
development projects without serving
my sectional or Individual Interests.
That It could bo made vastly educa
tional , not merely In exploiting northwestern -
western resources and opportunities ,
.but in Illuminating national problems

of natural resources , was at once ap

was a member of congress who after
he was declared re-elected resigned be
cause he thought there was a taint
of fraud in his election. If that does
not make him distinguished , not to
Kay unique , there is nothing on earth
that could. It is safe to say his Is the
only case of the kind in history.
Then there is Hiram W. Johnson of
California , who became a progressive
despite the fact that his father , who
had also been distinguished In his da.\ .
was a regular of regulars. Before tils

He was determined to have an educa

DIAMONDS AT THE DURBAR.
Why th Kohinoor Will Be Worn In the
Two notable crown jewels which did
not appear at the coronation will be
worn by Queen Mary at the coming
durbar nt Delhi. One Is the famous
Kohinoor nnd the other Is n large diamond
mend lotus , which will form the pen
dant to a necklace of matchless stones.
A tradition concerning the Kohinoor
says , "Who holds the Kohinoor holds
India. " for It was this marvelous gem
that crowned the head of an Indian
emperor fi.OOO years ago. King Ed
ward once wished to have the gem set
in his crown , but was petitioned not to
do so by many leading Indians on ac
count of the superstition that the gem
had always brought dire disaster to
the man who wore it , whereas If the
wearer were a woman fortune would
shine on her for the rest of her days.
Thus it is that five years ago the Koh
inoor was mounted in Queen Alexan
dra's diadem , from which It is being
Transferred to that of Queen Mary.

GENIUS OF SCHUBERT.
Whatever the Great Composer Felt
Flowed Forth In Music.
Whenever Schubert happened to turn
over the leaves of a volume of poetry ,
verses that pleased him would be
come clothed In melody They would
sing themselves in his mind with su
perb accompaniment , noble in rhythm
und rich in harmonies. If paper hap
pcned to be within reach the song
would at onrp be written down.
One July evening In 18215. after a
long walk , the composer strolled into
a beer garden and found n friend sit
ting at a table with n volume of Shake
speare. Slmbcrt picked up the book
and rend the song In "Cyinbellne , "
