After howling for years against a
protective tariff, Senator Tillman of
South Carolina, stood up iu the senate
last Wednesday and made a speech iu
favor of an amendment to the Aldrich
bill placing a duty of ten cents a pound
on tea. In the next campaign Till
man will take the stump and rant
about the robber tariff.
How would a plank like this in the
republican state platform suit our pro
hibition and county option friends:
"We reaffirm oar unswerving devotion
to the personal rights and liberties of
oar citizens. The first concern of all
good government is the virtue and
sobriety of the people and the parity of
the home. The republican party cor
dially sympathizes with all wise and
well-directed effort for tbe promotion
of temperance and morality."
How the United States is to secure a
representative system which will less
en the evils growing out of the over
emphasis of district loyalty is one of
the problems for the future to solve.
No one would today suggest that our
congressmen and senators should be
directly chosen to represent industries
instead of localities. But centain it is
that a senator directly representing
the cotton or iron industries, known to
the people as such and unable to hide
hiamself behind flamboyant oratory
about the "people" of this state, would
be better under control than one nom
inally representing a state but ac
tually a group of industries. The man
wko will furnish the idea for a xmn
effective basis of popular representa
tion will prove one of the most valua
ble of our political investors. Chicago

The first state prohibitory law was
passed in Maine in 1846. In 1851 a
more stringent law was adopted. Ver
mont in 1852, New Hampshire in
1855 and Connecticut in 1854 adopted
tbe Blaine law. Then the "great pro
hibition wave," as it was called at the
time, spread to New York and a cam
paign for state wide prohibition was
fought. Thecontest resulted in favor
of the prohibitionists, and from 1855
to 1857 New York was on the water
wagon. It was not until twenty-five
years later, after nearly all the states
named above had repealed the prohi
bition laws passed in the fifties, or
refused to enforce it, that the move
awentcroaaed the Mississippi. In 1880
Kantan adopted prohibition, and after
trying in vain to enforce the law did
usage to close tbe saloons and trans
fer the liquor traffic to the drug stores.
Iowa passed a prohibitory law in 1882,
but tbe law was declared unconstitu
tional. In 1884 Iowa tried it again
and got a prohibitory law, that with
stood tbe constitutional test, but the
law finally became so unpopular that
tbe legislature repealed it in 1894.
North and 8outh Dakota came into
the Union as prohibition states, but in
1896 South Dakota returned to the
license system of regulating the liquor
traffic. Since the first Maine law was
passed and up to the time the move
ment gained strength in the south,
twenty-six states had passed a prohi
bitory law, but of this number only
three states Maine, Kansas and
North Dakota have retained the law.
The North has had its "prohibition
ware," and the Southern states are
now' having a like experience.
The present period in the history of
the world has been referred to as an
"age of great mental activity." And
it is true. Within the past one hun
dred years tbe world has made won
derful strides in advancement. Within
that period the population has in
creased from one billion to one and
one-half billion, the ingenuity of man
has made it possible to cross a conti
nent in less than six days, and steam
across the Atlantic in five days; with
in thirty minutes after a yacht contest
off the English coast, the news boys
were selling papers on the streets of
New York announcing the result; two
hours after the birth of a child in
Philadelphia, its grandfather in
Chicago was called up by phone at
midnight and heard the infant cry;
the wooden plow used by our ancestors
to scratch the soil, has given place to
the steam plow that turns over thirty
acres of earth in a single day. Free
schools, a free pretsand the reparation
of church and state and greater res
pect for the individual rights of man
were instrumental in blazing a trail
along the highway "of Time for the
uplifting aud advancement of the
human race.
Yet during this eriod of great men
tal activity, thrre have been outbreaks
of "mental epidemics," which have
threatened ill for the good of man and
endangered his political and religious
freedom, but iu combating extremes
and marching on in the middle of tbe
road, the people of this country have
kept the old Ship of State from strik
ing the rocks, although many times
tempest tossed on a dangerous coast.
The mental activity period has at
present reached a stage which has de
veloped a "reform" microbe that
threatens to cause an endless amount
of agitation and endanger the per
sonal rights of man. In the name of
reform the abolishment of the supreme
court has been suggested; in the name
of reform the acknowledgement of
God in the constitution is demanded;
in tbe name of reform the confiscation
of private property is advocated; in
the name of reform there are men who
advocate the expenditure of billions of
dollars of-the people's money for the
'purpose of purchasing the railways of
the country at a price to be fixed by
congress regardless of the rights of
those who own railway property to fix
their own price or sell at all; in the
name of reform the country is being
harangued by professional agitators
who preach the gospel of discontent
and fauaticism at so much per
In commenting on mental epidemics,
G. G. Wenzloff, in a recentarticle
taken from "Mental Man," says:
Socially and historically the signifi
cance of suggestibility may be seen in
certain epidemic-like movements anil
affections that have, from time to time,
stirred communities and even whole
nations. Tbe Crusades, which involved
tbe great nations of Europe, started from
tbe appeals of an insignificant hermit.
The suggestion to possess the Holy
Sepnlcber found lodgment in a mental
soil perfectly adapted, and soon the
hosts of Christendom, including even
children, launched out repeatedly on
those ill-fated expeditions. Tbe story
of witchcraft and its suppression fur
nishes another instance of a persistent
and widespread suggestion that held tbe
nations in mortal fear, and sent thous
ands of guiltless wretches to the stake.
The dancing mania has arisen at dif
ferent times and places snd spread over
considerable areas. By thousands, men,
women and children were drawn -into
the dancing vortex. In Italy they
danced to tbe tone of Tarantella, which
was believed to care the dancer from tbe
supposedly poisonous bite of tbe taran
tula, and so widespread became this
mental epidemics that few were quite
exempt from it. During tbe French
Revolution tbe Carmagnole song drew
tbe Parisian populace, men and women,
into a wild dance that went whirling
down tbe streets, and was conspicuous
at tbe public executions.
Quasi-religious epidemics furnish ex
cellent illustrations of tbe varied possi
bilities of suggestion. Tbe affected per
sona were seized with quaking and
trembling, or with ejaculations and roll
ing on tbe ground, accompanied with
either deep remorse or intense joy, or
with a swaying motion and a shouting of
more or lees meaningless phrases. In
tbe great revival in Ohio in 1800 (at one
of the meetings al Cane Ridge it is esti
mnied that twniy thousand people were
pnsent) nome were taken with "the
jerks," some with the "holy laugh,"
others with harking aronnd a tree in
veritable dog fashion they were "tree
ing the devil," etc. During tbe Dark
Ages (Thirteenth Century) the Flagel
lants, seized by unexampled remorse,
marched about in procession, almost
entirely naked, scourging themselves
with leather thongs that brought tbe
blood. '
One of tbe lecent mental epidemics of
this nature is that among the Donkobers,
a Russian sect settled in the Canadian
Northwest First thev discarded tbe
use of animals ia their farm work, hitch
ing themselves to the plow, etc. Then
they left their homes en masse and wan
dered about naked or half clad in quest
of the Saviour Neither reasoning aor
entreaty could turn them back, ss ban
ger, cold sod other hardships bad not
done. Nothing but force oa the part of
tbe Canadian authorities finally brought
the fanatics back to their hones.
like the senators who favor an
income tax, the men-who have capital
invested in breweries in Tennessee,
hope that tbe supreme court of the
United States will reverse a former I
decision rendered. 'The income taxi
law passed in 1893 was declared un
constitutional. In 1887 the supreme
court held that the fourteenth amend
ment to the constitution that "no state
shall make or enforce any law which
shall abridge the privileges of immu
nities of citizens of the United States,
nor shall any state deprive any person
of property without due process of
law," did not apply to saloon property,
and held that it is within the discre
tionary police power of a state to pro
tect the public health, safety and
orals, even bv the destruction of
property without compensation. Be
lieving that the state does not possets
the constitutional authority to destroy
or confiscate their property without
compensation, the Tenuessee Brewing
Company has secured an order from
the court which resttains, temporarily,
the enforcement of the state prohibi
tory law so far as it applies to the bus
iness of the company named. The
case will be watched with interest
throughout the country, and if the
supreme court reverses its former de
cision, as rendered iu the Kansas case,
and decides in favor of the brewing
company, you won't hear much shout
ing among prohibitionists. Natural ly,
Columbus people'will be interested in
the legal fight which has been com
menced by the Tennessee Brewing
Company, as the decision, when ren
dered, will effect the brewery here in
the event of a prohibitory law in
The Peoria Journal, a strong demo
cratic paper that supported Bryan in
1908, has become disgusted with the
.members of its party in congress, and
scores them for, violating the tariff
plank of the Denver platform. The
Journal, in demanding the nomination
of Theodore Roosevelt in 19i2, is in
perfect harmony with the sentiment
that prevails in Nebraska and other
western states: "Nominate Theodore
Roosevelt, uominate for congress men
who will stand by him in the great
work that he inaugurated and that he
should have been allowed to finish, and
the people will, get what they want,
and through him that power will be
restored to the people that is now in
the hands of a few. Theodore Roose
velt is greater and better than bis
party or any other party. Theodore
Roosevelt should not be a party choice.
He should be nominated by the people
regardless of party, and that people
would elect him just as surely as God
Sme people get into jail charged
with queer crimes. A man is in jail
at North Platte for kidnapping his
own child, and a Hastings woman has
been arrested for stealing a bible.
When asked as to whether or not he
would take a hand in the Nebraska
contest on the liquor issue Mr. Bryan
answered: "I most certainly will.
For eighteen years I have engaged in
discussing other questions but I shall
do my part to keep our party from be
ing controlhd by the liquor interests."
Commenting on this expression the
Charleston News and Courier says:
"This would seem to indicate that Mr.
Bryan intends to attack the American
electorate on another flank in 1912.
We do not known to what extent he
will go into sumptuary legislation, a
wholly un-Democratic policy, but we
can count on him surely to do the
thiLg that will not only accomplish
bis defeat, but the defeat of the party
on which he has fastened bis hold."
Mr. Bryan will have some difficulty
iu getting the Democratic national
convention of 1912 to make prohibi
tion a new paramount, but he has been
so successful heretofore in commit
ting that unfortunate organization to
his fads that predictions of failure in
the case of prohibition can not be made
with any confidence. Prohibition, as
a national issue, can never carry the
country, but, conceivably, it could car
ry a Democratic convention if it had
a powerful man behind it like Bryan.

Wake Up with a Thirst.
Queen Elizabeth of England is re
puted to have drunk a quart of ale
every day with her breakfast.
Though not the leader in progressive
legislation for wage earners, England
having awakened to a sense of the in
adequacy of its ancient system of poor
laws and enacted an old age pension law
under which certain classes of working
people who have reached the age of
70 are given a pension of 5 shillings a
week, its statesman are discussing
other measures by which the economic
insecurity .of workingmen under the
present industrial system may be less
ened. Mr. Churchill and Mr. Lloyd
George have proposed a measure i of
state insurance against sickness and
unemploymet misfortunesfrom which
not even the most thrifty and temper
ate are immune. The suggestion has
met with the usual opposition from
the element in every community which
so highly respects that natural law tin
drr which bodies tend 'to remain in a
state of rest that it overlooks the fact
that nevertheless thiug?, even such
stable Ihinga as government forms, do
To Americans weighted by a tradi
tioual fearof 'paternalism" aud slow
to admit the fact that since here iu this
democracy many desirable ends have
been accomplished through collective
agencies, more social legislation is not
only desirable, but inevitable, the pro
position that insurance is as properly
within the functions of a state as are
public educatiou, public highways,
public control of water ways, health,
sanitation and care of the insane and
poor may seem so Utopian as not to
enter into the realm of practical poli
tics. Yet, though it is still a matter
ouly of discussion in Great Britain,
compulsory state insurance for work
men has been in actual practice for
more than twenty years in that most
practical and energetic nation, the
German Empire.
Frank W. Lewis, member of the
Boston bar and careful student of so
cial problems, has devoted much time
to the world-wide agitation which is
resulting fh old-age pensions and other
measures for the relief of those who
without help of some kind are destined
to be submerged by industrial condi
tions over which they have no control.
The result of his study he has embodi
ed in a book on "State Insurance," in
which with other valuable information
he sets forth a clear statement of the
insurance plan as it is followed in
Germany. His sympathies are re
vealed in the descriptive phrase follow
ing the title of his book, which reads,
"State Insurance, a Social aud Indus
trial Need."
Oddly enough the policy of compul
sory state insurance, which in Ameri
can eyes is so strongly socialistic and
opposed to the old individualistic the
ory of letting each man work out his
own salvation, was proposed by the
iron-handed Bismarck as a remedy for
what seemed to him a malignant form
of Socialism. To cure it, he prescribed
inoculation. But behind his imperious
will there must be recognized a solici
tude for the working classes on the
part of the royal house which accept
ed the declaration of Frederick the
Great that to hold the balance between
the classes is the supreme duty of the
Disastrously Deceived.
Miss Ethel Barrymore described at
a luncheon in Boston the way she hood
winked the reporters over her wed
ding. "For one reporter, a pretty girl, I
was sorry," said Miss Barrymore.
"She told me she was horribly fooled
she lost a two-column story some
ten dollars.
"She said she was almost as disas
trously fooled as she bad once been
at home in her girlhood. ' They were
playing, she said, blindman's buff and
she was the blind man. She crept
about a bit, caught hold of some one,
explored a little with her bands, and
cried in triumph:
" 'Ah-a, I know who this is. This Is
Uncle Jabez Carpenter. I can feel his
funny mustache and his wiry old whis
kers.' "But, the girl explained, it wasn't
her Uncle Jabez Carpenter at all. It
was her rich old Aunt Annie Plummer,
who cut her forthwith from her will.
Pneumatic Knee Caps.
"Let me sell you a pair of new pat
ent pneumatic knee caps, madam,"
the salesman said. "They save scrub
women from housemaid's knee."
The knee caps were of rubber.
They fitted on the knee with straps
and buckles. They were the size of a
man's hand, and they cost $2.50. The
kind-hearted visitor bought a pair to
give to an aged pensioner.
"These testimonials go with them,
madam." the oierk said. "Eight doc
tors testify here that the pneumatic
knee cap besides preventing the aasty
disease called housemaid's knee
changes a scrubbing from a torturing
to a bearable occupation, such aa
even you or I might try."

The obligations of -a community
based on Christianity were especially
recognised in the message on the pro
posed insurance scheme sent by Wil
liam I, to the reichstag in 1881,and this
ideal of a Christian duty on the part
of the state enforced by the demands
of the growing Socialist party had a
determining influence on the passage
of the bills. The imperial plan worked
under Bismarck contemplated three
branches of insurance against sick
ness, old age and invalidity. The bill
providing against sickness became a
law in 1883, that against accidents
was passed in 1884 and that respect
ing old age and invalidity in 1889, so
for a score of years, the workingmen
as part f the nation': industrial ma
chine which must be cared for has
been recognized
In his sketch of the scheme Mr.
Lewis say: "Insurance apiinsl t-ick-uess
is compulsory upon workmen and
employes iu all of the main employ
meuts which are designated in s une
detail in tbe laws mainly iikhi those
receiving wages or salary of not more
than 9476 per annum, but uhh cer
tain classes of workmen, regardless of
ages. It may be extended to those, en
gaged in domestic industry, agricul
ture and forestry.
"The range of accideut insurance is
similar, and it is subject to similar ex
tension, but it is compulsory pn those
receiving -wages not exceeding $714
per annum. Old-age and invalidity
insurance applies to all workmen above
16 years of age, to apprentices and do
mestic servauts, without regard to the
amount of earnings, and to employes,
teachers, etc., who earn less than $476
a year.
"Reckoning not only those insured
but their families, the insurance ex
tends to more thau one-half of the po
pulation of the empire. There is a
wholesome provision that the insur
ance shall not in any case be assigned,
mortgaged or attached under legal pro
cess, nor shall tbe benefits be waived
by any contract between the parties.
"The contributions for sickness in
su ranee are made, one-third by the em
ployers and two-thirds by the employ
es; for accident insurance entirely by
employers, and for old age and invali
dity insurance employers and employ
es contribute equally, the state adding
to their joint contribution for each an
nuity a subsidy of $11.90 per annum.
While in accident insurance the em
ployer meets the entire charge, he is
largely exempt from liabilities on ac
count of accidents. The charge varies
much according to the greater or less
hazard of the industry; this hazard is
not averaged between the various in
dustries, but each must meet its own."
The development of this scheme has
shown to the German people that a
state cannot afford to be indifferent to
anything which affects the worker's
capacity to produce. Accidents and
sickness harm not only the individual
but the community of which he is a
part. "State Insurance" is published

Helping Lonely Women.

state in the union. There are said to
be no less than 100,000 spinsters and

has been much discussion of schemes
for their benefit and relief. Recently
prominent business and professional
women of Boston have organized foi
the purpose of getting the state to aid
in purchasing small tracts of land, on
which lone women can engage in ag
