Governor Shallenberger Rampant.
The fulminatlon Itsued by Governor
Shailenbergcr lambasting the federal
court for preferring to- nullify the de
posit guaranty law rather than to nul
lify the constitution would indicate
that obr democratic governor, instead
of keeping his equanimity, hid allowed
himself to be stsmpeded. A famous
statesman once declared, "that loud
noise does not betoken sound argu
ment,'1 and neither does mere denun
ciation of a. court establish the un
soundness of its decision.
That tho governor's proclamation Is
the product of an excited mind Is best
proved by the flagrant mistakes, and
misstatements, which he surely would
not have made In a deliberate mood.
The governor ' deplores the fact that
Judge T. C. Munger happened to hear
the case Instead of Judge, W. H. Mun
ger, whom he characterizes as "that
distinguished democrat of this state
who was made a federal Judge by n
revered republican president." This
is the first time that any Bryan demo
crat rccognlstd Judge W. H. Munger
as a distinguished democrat, because
his refusal to follcw Bryan was always
regarded by the Bryanites as a deser
tion of the party. Moreover, Judge
W. II. Munger was not appointed by a
republican president, but the signrng
of his commission was one of the last
official acts of Grover Cleveland as the
last democratic president.
Governor Shallenberger asserts that
two acts of the recent 'democratic leg
islature have been set aside by nine
judges, "of whom six were appointed
to the bench for political services,
either to their party or to the powers
that created then.." While this num
ber of Judges participating In 'these
two decisions is incorrect, one of the
six Judges' fie thus slaps as appointed
for political service is at this moment
running -for re-election on the demo
cratic ticket, pretending to be a non
partisan. Of course, the governor in
tended to except' this' one of the six,
but in his blind fury ho evidently over
looked it. ; r
The governor's diatribe about the
legislature being "the only voice"
through - which the people may rule,
rnd about, the theory of our govern
ment making the legislature supreme,
has no foundation In fact. The theory
of our government, contemplates three
co-ordinate branches--executive, legis
lative and judicial. .Where, questions
of constitutional validity are Involved
the executive has the first veto on leg
islative acta, and the judiciary the. sec
end. The governor's veto may be
overridden by tho legislature, but not
the Judicial veto. t Whether a British
judge can, or cannot, set aside nn act
of Parliament Is not in point, because
the British Parliament, when commons
and lords act together, may maks and
change the British constitution Instead
of being subject to it. In, this country
the legislature is governed by the con
stitution, the same, as the executive
and the Judiciary,' and the acta of any
of them in conflict with the coastitu
tlon are null and void.
The charitableconstruction to put
on the governor's outburst is that
someone else wrote it for him and mis
led him into standing for it. .
The Baling Influence. .
That indeterminate term"un3ue in
fluence," which; is , so of ten . used In
the effort to set aside wills; hassmet
with a specific rout in' the judicial
pronouncement that when love Is the
basis for that influence, the wishes
inspired by love should be fulfilled.
The case Is one in which relatives
of a dead woman sought to obtain be
quests made by her to her fiance, who
had also been her adviser In business
affairs. The court held that the fiance
had justly earned the gratitude of the
testator by his counsels,' and that she
had a right further to reward him for
his personal aid. "There Is no telling
what value a Woman might place upon
such service," rules the court, Vwhose
heart had become Interested and
whose affections had been aroused.
The last act between the testator and
her affianced lover, before the opera
tion that preceded her death, was that
they kissed, and she asked that her
engagement ring be left on her fin
ger. There is no evidence of undue
Influence exceptthe influence that
legitimately controls everything
Here we have the modern Judicial
application of the poet's claim that
"love makes the world go round," and
of the ancient injunction that love is
greater than faith and hope. Those
who 'believe that the promptings of
the heart have a right to their sway
over the dictates of the reason will
be ready to applaud the legal dictum
that sordid claims and blood ties alike
are subject. In common with all the
rest of the affairs of men, to that mys
terious power which, as unbidden
guest, sets up Its throne in the human

From the fakir at the fair grounds to
the operator in speculation, success
in hooking victims depends largely on
the replenishing of the bait.. Gam

,. The sudden reappearance of Lo

a. demonstration of how to beat the
market and win fabulous sums, may
be heeded, by the wise as a langer
signal; for while it is true that in a

Illustrated in the case of New Jersey,
which now faces the probability of an
extra session of. the legislature In an
effort to head off a water grab
scheme. It would seem as though a
state of-such. limited territory placed
so near to large centers of population
under other Jurisdiction would long
ago have safeguarded so necessary a
factor as its water supply, but not un
til the peril was immediately upon it
did New Jersey awaken to the fact
that alien interests were about to di
vert to New York territory a consid
erable flow of the potable waters of
the state. The legislation that fol
lowed, after keen legal conflict, es
tablished the state's right to keep
within Us borders its drinking water,
and the New Jersey people breathed
freer; but it is now evident that their
legislators again were caught napping,
for the old enemy is discovered . to be
pushing anew Us project to convey
New 'Jersey water under Staten Island
sound to th borough of Richmond,
It . transpires that, the law which
was put on the statute books only af
ter vigorous arousing of popular
wrath against the contemplated grab,
merely prohibits the diversion to an
other state of the surface waters, and
the new effort is tp sink huge wells
and drain the subterranean supply
through pipe lines beyond the borders.
Tapping the water supply by means
of wells cannot fail to be a drain upon
the very lakes and streams which the
Jerseyroen have sought to conserve,
and if New York be permitted to be
gin this exhausting process against its
neighbor state the people of New Jer
sey might soon face a shortage for
themselves. Governor Fort has lately
been on the outs wfth the bulk of his
party, and his present popularity with
the members of the legislature is not
very high, but in this crisis every loyal
Jerseyman would rally to the govern

' Dr. Eliot to the Nation.
' One of the final public services of
Dr. Charles W. Eliot, crowning his
long career of usefulness as president
of Harvard, is his translation into
text of the sentiments represented, by
the allegorical figuies to be placed
over the entrances of the great new
Union station at Washington.. It is

famous educator should be enlisted ia

thoughts of Dr. Eliot will be blazoned
to welcome the coming and to speed
the parting guest.
Dr. Eliot in classic verse hails fire
as the greatest of discoveries, but
electricity as man's "greatest servant,
itself unknown." He halls "Freedom,
the fairest of all the daughters of
time and of thought," and pays trlb
ute to "the farm, best home of the
family, main source of national
wealth, foundation of civilized society,
the natural providence." The march
of transportation he attributes to the
"old mechanic arts, controlling ' new
forces," and he pays bis respects to
the present era of conservation by
giving an up-to-date application of
making the "desert blossom as the
rose." As a final counsel he urges
'.'Lei all .the ends thou aimst nt be
thy country's, thy God's, and truth's."
-Altogether, It is an . Impressive
choice of words that the worthy doc
tor has Inscribed for the gateways of
the -nation's capital. He has drawn
from the deeps of past knowledge
and has applied his own exhaustless
fund of wisdom in framing an appre

thought for the future development

Elderly clerks quartered' In the Treasury

A correspondent of the Brooklyn Eagle
report that the general staft of the army
ia working out Its plans for Increasing the
number ot officers for the regular army,
thereby Increasing Its effectiveness. Ex
perts have long held that the American
regu)ars are under-officered. All calcula
tions' are based on a larger output of
graduates from West Tolnt military acad
emy, and, consequently, on an increase In
the number of cadets.
Tha plan to be recommended for Increas
ing tha corps of cadets provides that ap
pointments to the military academy shall
be made every three years instead of every
four years. Each member of the house of
represematlves, each senator and the presi
dent will make appointments more fre
quently and there will be no disturbance
In the method of distributing such appoint
ments. Under this plan the corps of cadets would
be Increased 86. The president has inter
posed no objection to this plan of the
general staff, and members of the military
committee of tha bouse and ser.ata have
Intimated that congress would not bo op

has favored the plan for some time.' (
Each graduating class of the military

than 89 per cent of tha whol(i number ot

There Is said to be at least one enlisted
man aboard most of the large vessels of the
navy who makes considerably more money
than the captain or commanding offioer.
That is the barber, the aristocrat of the
gun deck. It is easy to see where the
barber accumulates money, when one
learns that he charges each Jack H a
month to remove his whiskers and cut his
hair. If there are 500 enlisted men aboard
the vessel then the barber makes his 1500 a
month, hot or cold, rain or shine. Twelve
times that makes him out as making
$6 000 a year, all of It outright profit Be
sides, he may roll up a few hundred dol
lars more by giving shampoos and hair
cuts and the like to the officers.
Never a cent of rent does the ship's
barber's stand cost. him. He is not taxed
for the privilege of making $8,000 or more
a year. H is sought for and invited. The
only requirement Is that he must enlUt
like any other man, and serve out his en
It Is one of. the strictest rules of the
navy that pone but enlisted men are al
lowed aboard ship. So on the lists the
baiber Is technically rated as seaman,
like the rest of them. He geta his pay,
too, In that capacity, by the way, from
the government, and adds that mite to
the handsome sum that he earns himself.
When a ship Is being put into commis
sion Its executive officer hunts around for
a good barber hankering to enlist as
patiently aa a fiddle maker hunta for a
beam of seasoned wood.
The cook does not maka so much as the
barber, nor anywhere1 near it, but his
merits have as much to do with keeping
the men sound and happy as anything or
anyone aboard Ship.
It Is a sort of officers' saying that men
are at their best under a mean captain and
a good rook. If the cook Is mean the
combination Is Intolerable, and they de
sert. If the captain is popular his reputa
tion Is spoiled by a bad cook. The men
lump tha captain and the ship together
and vote them bad or good according as
the food satisfies and renders them cheer
ful or the opposite.
The cook has a high rating and good
pay, but no other legitimate profits. On
tlub other hand he has plenty of assistants,
and his tu.uk is an easy one. At least. It Is
less, labor than that of the barber, with
more leisure In between times.
It Is surprising how much difference the
abilities of the cook make in the comfort
of the sailors. Though the food is simple
and the cooking simpler yet, the tar 1.-1 a

A great gam of poker Is reported from
Carson City, Nev., many thousands of dol

IHATTCKlXa A TRADITION.
President Taft's Visit to Mexican Ter
St Lols Times.
President Taft. should receive due oredlt
for shattering what was at best a .foolish
tradition. When ha steps across the border
between the United States and Mexico
today ha will have put to rout, we hope
for all time, the idea that a president of
the .United . States cannot go beyond the
dimensions of the country of which he
happens to be tho head.
There will be no one, except a few silly
sentimentalists, who will criticise the presi
dent for his action in attending the re
ception which has been prepared for him
at Juares, Mexico. The tradition has never
had any basis in sound sense, but has been
growing stronger with each year that the
chief executive of this country, in mak
ing long trips, chose to observe its' re
strictions. Rulers of other countries find it the part
of diplomacy occasionally to pay well
timed - visits to foreign lands. Why a
president of the United Btatea should not
ba permitted to strengthen the good feeling
obtaining between this country and Mexico,
or this country and Canada, by brief
visits, does not appear, except as preced
ent governs. Presidential "swinging about
the circle" is becoming common, snd mere
seems no good reason why it should not
include. In a amahl measure, at least our

Come the opalescent days when the world
Is Jewel-tinted ,
With the gleamlngs through . the lAza
where the summer fires have glli4t.
When the faintest flash of gold tips tha
leaves and rims their edges
And bronse colorings enfold .all tha mead-
owlands and hedges
When the woodbine, drips as wine from a
golden chalice spilling, 1
And a flavor fair and fine- th autumnal
air Is filling, . m
And the maples dance with flame, that Is
bright yet uncojtsumlng, . r '
And a scent that none can name all the
breeses Is perfuming .
When the oak leaves born' with red, ano!
the forest hues commingle
In mosaics overhead, and there 'is a tang
and tingle . : ' ,
In the very air' you breathe, " till It fill
your blood with laughter.
And the grape leaves Idly wreath chap- ,

When the sky at - night Is fair with a
That the stars are dripping there till the
dawn has made them dimmer,

frosty fields all hoary ....
And the drowsy shocks of corn trembl to
