THE GERMAN IDEA.
' I Prof. Ward Meyer of the University
,' of Berlin is lecturing at Harvard as an
,j "exchange professor." and has ex-
U pressed Jtbese views:
,!l "If, for example, the Monroe doc-
. trine were violated, the United Jstates
would appeal to the sword, aud not to
i Th HiifriiP. True, the United States
does not own South America, yet they
consider it to their advantage to keep
other nations from gaining a foothold
there. Inevitably this attitude must
lead to war as the only solution."
How happens this distinguished pro
fessor of Berlin to select the Monroe
doctrine for a subject, and to illustrate
it by South America? The doctrine is
also being expounded above our north
ern border. A few years airo the pre
mier of the dominion was against
entangling Canada in tin vortex of
transatlantic troubles, but now he is
sure that war upon England means
war with Canada, and that our Cana

The United States is not a "conquer
in" nation" nor animated bv "land
hunger," as Prof. Meyer asserts. We
rejected Cuba when we might have
taken it, and there are many of us who
would like to reject the Philippines
compatibly with our responsibilities.
There is no nation whose possessions
are not secure against our coveteous
ness. Contentment with our own is
the justification of our attitude regard
ing unlawful acquisitions of American
territory. It is about equally useful
that Germany should understand
Monroeism and that we should under
stand the German understanding.

WATSON VS. BRYAN.
The Hon. Thomas E. Watson of
Georgia challenges the Hon. William
J. Bryan of Nebraska to a joint debate
and offers to donate to the "peerless"
and the"matchless"Sl,000cash in hand
paid, if he will accept the defiance
aud come to the scratch. But the vul
gar herd is disappointed in the subject
selected by the intrepid Georgia
champion foreign missions. This,
we take it, is a quasi religious issue,
and more fit for the oratory of a clergy
man than a statesman. But Mr.
Brvau's lecture entitled "The prince
of Peace," evidences that he is at home
in the pulpit, ami entitled to rank as a
near-preacher at least. We have never
imagined the Hon. Tom with other job
than journalist, historian and states
man, though it is possible that he can
also play the role of a hardshell Bap
These two young gentlemen they
were very young men first met as
members of the Fifth-second congress.
Mr. Bryan adhered to the democratic
organization; Mr. Watson was a popu
list, though earlier he had been an
elector on the Cleveland ticket. Not
withstanding the populist strength in
that congress was mainly from Kansas,
Nebraska and other western states,
Sockless Simpson, about as attractive
a demagogue as congress ever saw, ab
dicated the primacy and was instru
mental in securing the nomination -of
Watson by the pops of speaker.
It was the natural thing, for the
Hon. Tom, then, as now, was chockfull
of individuality, backed by a courage
that could gaze an eagle blind. But
while the Georgian's ability was rec
ognized by all, he was not gifted with
that tuneful verbosity that soon made
the Hon. Bryan a very distinguished
member of that congress, and while
the Honorable Tom is incapable of
envy, it was apparent that he was
chagrined to seethe house go wild over
the fervid, florid, musical rhetoric of
the gentleman from Nebraska.
Later Mr. Watson ran for vice pre
sident on one or two tickets headed by
Mr. Bryan, and all doctors in Padua,
assisted by all the lawyers in Philadel

years that both tickets were not of the

CHICAGO'S MOST INTERESTING
"A cavalry charge and an Ameri
can national convention are the two
most exciting things I know," remark
ed a distinguished foreigner from his
seat in the diplomantic section at the
1908 Republican convention in the
Chicago Coliseum, during the progress
of the fortv-nine-minute Roosevelt de
monstration. The same distinguished
foreigner was at the Democratic con
vention the following month in the
Denver Auditorium and, again from
the diplomatic section, he witnessed
the eighty-nine-minute Bryan demon
stration. "I want to amend my Chi
cago declaration," said he to one of his
friends after adjournment, "and go on
record that a Republican national con
vention and a Democratic national
convention are the most exciting things
Prior to I860 the conventions had
been comparatively tame, says a writer
in the Chicago Record-Herald. They
hfcd been in the nature of semiprivate
assemblages, the general public not be
ing admitted in large numbers. The
convention of 18G0 was the first to
have a special building erected for it.
At that convention telegraph wires and
instruments were for the first time
brought into a convention building.
For the first time large numbers of
spectators were admitted and for the
first time there was organized cheering
aud planned demonstrations.
The convention which nominated
Lincoln perhaps had a wider, deeper,
more enduring effect on the history of
the country than any other convention
of a political party in American annals.
Nominations began almost at once af
ter the convention was called to order.
William M. Evarts presented Seward's
name. New York immediately got
into action with that species of care
fully planned demonstration and scien
tific cheering which have become the
most spectacular and thrilling parts
of a modern convention. So startling
was the effect of the well arranged Se
ward cheering that members of the
Lincoln forces felt somewhat "appal
led," as one of the Illinois delegates
expressed it. When the name of Se
ward was presented "the shouting was
absolutely frantic, shrill and wild.
Comanches or panthers never struck a
higher note nor gave screams with
more infernal intensity.
The Illinois, Indiana and other Lin
coln delegates at once proceeded to
avail themselves of New York's leson
in the art of demonstration. They
marshaled their forces into yelling bat
talions and arranged that there should
be one great demonstration of lung
power when Lincoln was nominated
and a second, & still greater demon
stration, when the nomination was se
conded. The organized Lincoln
cheering duly began when the future
President was put in nomination by N.
B. Judd, chairman of the Illinois de
legation. It was a good beginning, but
not quite equal to the Seward nomina
tion shouting. The Seward cohorts
had another chance to show their pow
ers as noise-makers when the Seward
nomination was seconded.
But then Caleb B. Smith of Indian i
took the floor to second the nomina
tion' of Lincoln and then was afforded
the opportunity for which Illinois had
particularly planned. Women had
been requested to wave their handker
chief during the demonstration follow
ing the seconding speech, while hun
dreds of flags were distributed to be
waved as well. Signals were agreed
upon to regulate. the cheering. "No
mortal before saw such a scene," wrote
Leonard Swett in describing what
happened alter Mr. Smith had spoken.
"The idea of us hoosiers and suckers
being outscreamed would have been al
most as bad as the loss ol our man.
Five thousand people at once leaped
to their seats, women not wanting in
the number, and the wild yells made
soft vesper breathings of all that had
proceded. No language can describe
it. A thousand steam whistles, ten
acres of hotel gongs, a tribe of Coman
ches, headed by a choice vanguard of
pandemonium, might have mingled in
the scene unnoticed." As the roar
died out a voice cried: "Abe Lincoln
has it, by the sound now. Let us bal
lot." Balloting followed without delay.
There were three ballots. On the first
Seward received 175 votes, while Lin
coln had but 102. Delegates to the
number of 183 divided their vot3s
among Simon Cameron of Pennsylvan
ia, Salmon P. Chase of Ohio, Edwards
Bates of Missouri, William L. Dayton,
of New Jersey, John McLean of Ohio
and Jacob Collamar of Vermont.
These delegates held the balance of
power. On the second ballot the
break to Lincoln began. Pennsylva
nia cast her fifty-two votes for the Mi
noisan after going into conference.
This was regarded as a certain index
of what happened on the third ballot
Lincoln on the second ballot got 181
votes, while Seward had 184. On the
last ballot the break gathered full head
way. As the ballot progressed it be
came plain that Lincoln was running
in advance of Seward. Suddenly the
word went around the hall: "Two
hundred and thirty-one and one-half
for Lincoln. Two and one-half more
will give him the nomination."
An instant of silence followed, ac
cording to the chroniclers of the epi
sode. The convention was grappling
with the idea. Then the chairman of
the Ohio delegation sprang upon his
chair and cried: "Mr. President, I
rise to change our vote from Mr. Chase
to Mr. Lincoln." Lincoln .was the
WASHINGTON NEWS LETTER.
Washington, Feb. 19. "Economy"
is an administration slogan at present.
The appropriation bills are beginning
to come over to the senate from the
house, and the retrenchment idea is
noticeable in the reductions being
made. Some of the items left off are
being put back by the Nebraska sena
tors, the appropriation for the Indian
supply depot being one instance.
Others may be saved by watchful care.
Indeed it is not at all sure that there
will not be some new public buildings
for Nebraska. But it is going to take
The Nebraska men are keeping
busv, however. Legislation passed the
senate last week which will call for the
expenditure of a few thousands out of
the U. S. treasury for a fish culture
station in Nebraska. Senator Burkett
got the bill through, and will try to
keep the item in. If it passes the
house, 325,000 will be expended in
Nebraska by Uncle Sam in breeding
and growing fish to stock the streams.
Already, however, the economical
program of President Taft has present
ed an obstacle to the enactment of
legislation dear to the hearts of the
Nebraska delegation. It has given
rise t.i a curious situation with refer
ence to a bill which Mr. Taft very
strongly endorsed when he was secre
tary of war, that of increasing the
size of the signal corps and making a
regular arm of the service.
The Nebraska men are interested
.because the headquarters of the signal
corps are in Nebraska. To increase
the size of the signal corps would,
therefore make Nebraska the base of
operations in experiments with aero
planes and other flying machines
which the war department is trying
out. Last year in a letter to Senator
Burkett. who introduced the bill. Sec
retary Taft set forth at length the im
portance of increasing this branch of
the service, and urged that the bill be
passed. As president, however, he is
put in the position of lteing slow to
endorse bills calling for new appro
priations, and his precise attitude can
not be determined. He has not yet
indicated just how he feels about the
bill now, but within a few days he
will probably be called upon to do so.
Major Squier, who is practically at
the head of the signal corps, and who
last summer made many flights in the
Wright machine, had a -long confer
ence with Senator Burkett last Thurs
day, outlining the situation and advis
ing an interview with the president
with a view to having him adhere to
his former recommendation as secre
tary. Senator Burkett has arranged
to see Mr. Taft and it may be that the
bill will yet go through.
The same difficulty will have to be
met in connection with Senator Bur
kett's proposal to buy a tract of land
near Ashland for a rifle range for the
use of the troops at Fort Crook. The
matter is now liefore the appropria
tions. The signal corps is before the
military affairs committee. With
Senator Burkett on one and Senator
Brown on the other committee, Ne
braska will have a distinct advantage
in the fight that will have to be made.
An interesting study in types of
American citizenship was presented
last week by two young Nebraska men
who were in Washington on leave
from different eastern colleges. Both
young men were comely, well groomed,
polished in appearance, and seemed
fairly representative of the cultured
American college man. Each has won
laurels in his studies. One has a rare
tenor voice, is a member of the Har
vard glee club and a singer in one of
the Hub's exclusive churches. The
other is the winner of many athletic
victories, has done 100 yards in ten
seconds, flat, has played football for
four years, and is a star on his college
track team. Both met at the com
mittee room of one of the Nebraska
men in congress, on whom they came
to call. One of these dark haired
youths can trace his ancestry to good
old Puritan stock. The other's fore
fathers may have met the Puritans
when they came to these shores, for he
was from the Carlisle Iadiaa school.
The point is, you could not tell
which was the Indian.
It was a gathering bright with the
promise of a splendid and deserved
success a success on which hugs the
future of a free people and their free
institutions. Omaha World-Herald.
These are the closing words of a
powerful editorial on the recent demo
cratic love-feast ia Lincoln where
many ambitious democrats forgot self,
forgot the allurements of power and
patronage, and allayed the itch for
office with the balm of devotion to im
perishable principles. In his desire to
promote the freedom of a free p"Kple,
and to perpetuate free institutions,
Jim Dahlman forgot some of the im
portant things he intended to have
said, and the same remain unspoken
up to the present time. Bat the occa
sion, as has been well said, was "bright
with the promise of a splendid and
deserved success," and Jim basked in
the sunshine of it'along with the rest
of them as happy as any aspiring poli
tician could be hearing the boys holler
their heads off for the fellow whose
scalp he wants lifted. Some were
happy to a degree in trying to forget
the admonition of William J. Bryan,
printed in the morning newspapers,
feeling that harmony must prevail in
spite of hellandhigh water, or the im
pression would go out that the future
of free institutions had been tampered
with in the household of its friends.
And so these fellows, it appears.

Insurgency is a breaking out of the
unrest that has been working among
the common people in the republican
party for some years. The so called
leaders have been leading away from
first principles and toward the interests
of the corporations, the trusts and the
moneyed classes. Thecoaunon herd
have stood this as long as is possible.
Koosevelt was the first insurgent.
His insurgency became so pronounced
that in 1904 the interests would have
defeated his nomination if they could.
He was a bluff, bold, open fighter and
his work gave a great impetus to the
uprising that is now felt in every vot
ing precinct in America. Today some
are insurging because President Taft is
not making the noise that Roosevelt
did. These are criticising the presi
dent without waiting to see his hand
or the moves that he is making. There
is always a danger that the pendulum
will swing too far; that the kicks will
be too hard and become unreasonable;
that we may stand against true reform
while clamoring for it' tThe masses
often run wild when they get started.
The writer believes in.inaurgency, but
he would have zeal tempered with judg
ment and discretion and not run road.

The French do not. as a rule, employ
Inverted commas to indicate a dialogue,
but they employ the dash to indicate
a change of speakers, which is just as
bad. Certainly many punctuation marks
are sadly misused or overused. Dick
ens flung unnecessary commas all over
his pages whole battalions of them.
Walter Pater also employed them with
extraordinary prodigality, frequently
before the word "and" where the con
junction rendered them superfluous.
Pater was also overfond of the mark
of exclamation, so that when he drops
a "Yes" Into his measured style It must
needs appear as "Yes!" But. though
the Bible does without inverted com
mas, there Is real art In Its punctua
tion. How admirably it marks the ca

Old time physicians prescribed even
more unsavory remedies than rancid
butter, which was Emperor Menelik's
cure for malarial fever. In "Culpep

1656 and reprinted as recently as 1S20,
are such prescriptions as "oil wherein
frogs have been sodden till all the
flesh is off from their bones," "horse
leeches burned Into powder" and
"black soap and beaten ginger." Some
of Culpeper's remedies are of a more
practical nature. "If redhot gold be

fisherman who once tried to lure the
dainty trout from some of the nearby
brooks. The fisherman did not get a
bite in the brooks. He drove back to
Manchester rather disheartened aud
went to a restaurant to get something
to eat. He asked the restaurant keep
er if he had any trout and received an
affirmative reply. He ordered some of
the trout for his supper and then told
the proprietor that he might put two
or three of the uncooked fish In bis
fish basket out at the -door, as he
didn't care to go home and receive the
raillery of his friends. The proprietor
of the restaurant told one of the clerks
to carry out the order, and it was sup
posed to have been done faithfully.
But the clerk was not very alert,
and when the fiesherman got home
and opened up the fish basket to his
astonished wife there reposed two fine
