One Woman. Who Wini.
' It appears that Mrs. Ella Flags
Young of Chicago bas "It on" her sis
tera and brothers, too, for that mat
ter, In having discovered the coveted
key to success against men even In the
field of school politics. Mrs. Young
was able to capture the office of super
intendent of schools In Chicago, where
many men were available and anxious
to get the place, but her triumph baa
not ended there. She goes to the con
vention of the National Educational
association at Boston and defeats a
man for president of that organiza
tion. Today we hail Mrs. Ella Flagg
Young as the leaderof her sex in the
United States, a woman who. In aplte
of the denial of the suffrage, la yet
able to circumvent the political
machinations of the men aud beat
them at their own game. Nor must
it be said that her success came as a
trophy to her sex from a chlvalric op
position; rather as a tribute to supe
rior skill at the little game of politics.
Those mere men at Boston had forti
fied their candidate with what they
conceived to be every assurance of vic
tory; they bad laid tho wires through
which It seemed utterly Impossible for
the poor, weak woman opponent to
But, pshaw! It was easy for Mrs.
Young. She Just put her thinking cap
on, summoned a sister or two to her
side, gave a few orders and the next
thing the convention knew the presid
ing officer was proclaiming the elec
tion of Mrs. Young.
A striking object lesson to the rest
of those good crusaders who have been
pursuing this phantom of woman
rights so long in vain! More striking
in its Impressive force because
wrought in Boston, the hub and home
of assertive womankind, the source of
so many of the uplift institutions de
signed for woman's political uplift!
Surely such successful strategy, such
generalship and such a victory should
place Mrs. Ella Flagg Young at the
head of her class, well in advance of
other women for years trying to learn
of the present session, and further de
clares: Nothing could be so futile as to agi
tate fo:" an Immediate general revision of
thi new tariff law. We are not In pos
session of the facts for the proper re
vision; the business of the country ought
not to be subjected to the disturbance of
a premature tariff agitation; neither of
the existing parties at the present time
la a fit Instrument for sound tariff leg
islation; and the same forces which
made the present taw could prevent the
adoption of any bill .hat tould attempt
radical Improvement. But In due course
of time the public will 'revise Its own-
tariff, on the basis of sclentlfo study
and diffused Information.
If these remarks reflect the views
of both. Mr. Roosevelt and Senator Bev
eridge, as they doubtless do, the en
listment of the ex-prestdent in the
campaign for the Indiana senator will
have no unfavorable bearing on the
position of republicans generally who
stand by the present tariff as the best
that could be had under the circum
stances, and hope ultimately to get
something still better through the

Prayer and Pugilism.
Just how far prayer figured In the
struggle between the races at Reno
probably will never be known, since
its efficacy was tested on both sides.
So far as is known neither Jeffries nor
Johnson personally invoked divine aid,
but many of Johnson's people over the
country and Jeffries' father, who is a
minister, did resort to prayer. On
concluding his prayer the elder Jef

gambling. Subtract the telegraph

Is, the illegitimate traffic it has
been regarded by law then this move
on the part of the telegraph manage
ment has everything to commend it.
Bucketshops have long been under
the ban because they have conducted
form of speculative trade that does
not come within the limits of legiti
mate commerce and they cannot hope
to survive the opposition to them
much longer. This action of the tele
graph company should be the begin
nlng of the end. If so, men engaged
in stock market trade on a legitimate
basis ought to be the first to welcome
the order. Lawful business has noth
ing to lose, but everything to gain by
putting the bucketahop entirely out
of commission. For many years it has
existed only by sufferance and the abll
lty to dodge the assaults of the law
in various cities, but it is not reason
able to suppose that it can stem this
adverse tide Indefinitely.
The report came from New York
that the action barring the wires grew
out of orders from the Department of
Justice at Washington, and officials of
the company declined to discuss the
matter, but it is claimed that the com
pany acted on its own initiative. The
government's attitude, however, to
ward this species of trade has been too
well defined to be misunderstood. It
has grown weaf y of having Its author

BeTeridffe and the Tariff.
Because of the announcement that
Colonel Roosevelt will lend active as
sistance to Senator Beveridge in his
campaign for re-election by making at
least one speech in bis behalf In In
diana, it must not be assumed that the
ex-president la going to denounce the
new tariff law, against which Senator
Beveridge voted on its final passage.
As to the attitude of Senator Sever
ldge on the tariff bill, he, himself, has
explained his vote to be not a repudia
tion of the bill as a whole, but a pro
test against the omission of tho tariff
commission feature In which he was
particularly Interested. In this con
nection the comment In the current
Review of Reviews by its editor, Albert
Shaw, who Is as close as any other per
son to both Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Bev
eridge, is illuminating. Referring to
the appropriation of $250,000 to make
the work of the expert tariff board
effective under the direction of the
president, he says:
Tbe clause In the Payne-Aldrlcb tariff
law that provides for a tariff board was
drawn bv Senator Beveridge, and It
passed the senate in the proper form.

If leading conferees like Senator Hal
had not solemnly avowed that President
Taft would be unable (under the clause

has actually been doing, It la quite prob
able that Senator beveridge would have
voted for tbe tariff bill Instead of
ag-lnst It. For, although he disapproved
of several leading schedules. It was his
particular contention that the present
congress ought to create tHe machinery
whereby to give us a different sort of
tariff-making In the future.
Dr. Shaw goes on to say that, 4a his
opinion, the minor item in the appro
priation bill providing for the work of
the tariff board may in the end prove
to have been the most importaut act

yet he came here and personally went

vote it straight."

Did Mr. Bryan denounce them two
years ago when he thought he had a
chance to be elected president with
their help? Oh no! But now that he
says he Is not a candidate for office,
and never expects to be, he boldly tells
what he thinks of them.
It la a fair proposition that the Omaha
chief of police has made to' the intimation
of the governor that the latter has received
reliable information that the liquor laws
are being violated. The chief has responded
that he will thank the governor for the In
formation he has. Inasmuch aa It relates
to the sale of liquor In the clubs, it seems
unlikely that his proffer of thanks will be
accepted. Lincoln Star.

What Is clashed as epochal triumph
for the French ministry was scored by
Prime Minister Brland In the Chamber of
Deputies last week. The ministerial pro
gram of electoral reforms, after a debate
lasting three weeks, was approved by the
chamber. The chief significance of the
victory lies tn the fact -that the prime min
ister refused to compromise with the par
liamentary factions, constituting the ma
jority, Insisting on a broad national policy
regardless of local political needs. The
determination of the mlnlstery to stand
or fall on that proposition was argued
with sucl) eloquence and force, that petty
opposition was shattered, and the hitherto,
Invincible system of compulsory stronghold.
The proposed electoral reforms contemplate
three fundamental changes: (1) Reestab
llshment of the scrutln de liste Instead of
the existing scrutln d'arrondlssement; t')
proportional representation In the Intereat
of minorities; (8) reelection of the chamber
by sections every two years. As a rule the
department will continue to be the electoral
district the constituency except In cases
where It is either too small or too large.
It Is proposed that there hH be one
deputy for every 70,000 Inhabitants, with an
extra deputy In any const'tuency where
there la an additional fractlcn of population
amounting to more than 86,000. One re
sult of this) rearrangement will he to re
duce the existing number of deputies, ion,
by twenty. It la proposed that each con
stituency shall return at least four depu
ties. In some casea several small depart
ments will be grouped together In order to
obtain sufficient voters for these four rep
resentatives. On the other hand, the great
departments, like the Nord and the Seine,
which would elect more than fifteen depu
ties, will be divided Into smaller constitu
encies, livery deputy will be elected for
six years, Instead of four, aa at present.
One-third of the chamber will be renewed
by election every two years.
Although the Liberal party of Great

at one time also represented the liberals
in the House of Commons. The two last
named have for several years been spoken
of as coming liberal peers. Of the ninety
two peers created by liberal prime ministers

The county conventions of the republi

But President Taft will be given a strong

convention. Not a single county conven

to Taft. Not a single county convention,

thing mean In regard to the new tariff.

TOWN OF NOTHING-TO-DO.
Edgar A. Quest In Detroit Free Press.
They say romewhere. In the distance fair,
Is the town of Nothliig-to-lo,
Where the tsun, they say, slilncx every da
And the sides are always blue;
Where no one tries for a silver prize
And nu one strives for sold;
There every race, has taken place,
And every tale been told.

Of the town of Nothing-to-Do,
And vowa In his song, though the road li
Whan with anvil and forge he's through
He will wander far, where the glad folk;
And will rest In that happy town, .
He dreams of the day when he'll put fo;
His hammer and apron down!
O it matters not, what the toller's lot,
Be he preacher or soldier brave,
Though he delve a ditch, be he great ot
Be he Judge or a statesman grave,
He dreams always of the future days
When he'll come to Nothlng-to-D ;
When he's faced life's test, and his hands
And his time to toll Is through.
But Nothlng-to-Do, folks tell' me who

For the streams cf care surround It.
