The Transit of "Mike."
The list of delegates commissioned
to represent Holt county in the demo

the name of "Mike" Harrington. We
take it that this means that "Mike"
has finally shuffled off the last remnant
of his populist clothes and clad himself
In out-and-out democratlo garments
Up to two years ago "Mike" had al
ways insisted that he was a populist of
the blown-in-the-bottle variety, al
though he was always busy steering
the populist cart In the wake of the
democratlo machine. Two years ago
"Mike" got one foot over the fence
when he ran as one of the Dryan pres
idential electors with the populist
brand on one shoulder and the demo
cratic brand on the other. This
flagrant fraud proved to be successful,
If the theft for Bryan of votes Intended
for "Tom" Watson can be called suc
cessful. But "Mike" has evidently
been forced to the conclusion that the
game has been overplayed and that
he now has nothing more to gain by
masquerading as a' populist. The
transit of "Mike," therefore, is now
complete, and he will perform in the
democratlo ring at Grand Island aa he
used to perform in the populist end of
the tent. ,

In a series of reminiscences by an "Old
Political Iteporte'r" In the Brooklyn Eagle
Is the following story of the relations of
Theodore IloosevelL assemblyman, with
Orover Cleveland over a quarter of a cen
tury ago:
"Recently I have read as the conclusion
of a writer visibly affected by the revealed
greatness of Mr. Roosevelt that Roosevelt
exercised a commanding Influence over
Cleveland during the two years the latter
waa governor. Nothing could be further
from tha truth. In their intellectual con
stitutions and their mental habits and pro
cesses they were diametrically opposlto.
Cleveland arrived at his conclusions
through laborious thought; there was noth
ing Inspirational about him. The natural
tendencies of hH mind were confirmed Into
habit by the praotloe of the law. Rooaevelt,
In those years, at least, seemed to be wholly
Inspirational. His mental processes were so
'rapid that, he apparently reached conclu
sions Instantaneously and he seemed to be
surprised when his opinions Were not taken
at his own valuation of them. Indeed, in
being opposed he seemed to take as a per
sonal grievance the necessity of offering
argument In support of his determinations.
"Roosevelt -was a frequent caller on the
governor, but not mora so than other mem
bers of his party In tha assembly. To Cleve
land Roosevelt was a perplexity. The gov
ernor liked the assemblyman personally,
but the latter' peculiar mental attitude
bothered the executive. The governor "would
sit, large, solid and phlegmatic, listening
gravely to th energetic utterances of the
mercurial young man, but signifying neither
assent nor dissent. : Not infrequently, tak
ing silence for acquiescence, Roosevelt
would go away thinking that ha bad car
ried everything before him.
One day while standing at th private
secretary' desk with Lamont, watching
th two at the executive desk, th latter
said: 'I never see those two together that
"m not reminded of a picture I have of a
great mastiff solemnly regarding ' a small
terriar, snapping and barking at him,'
One day I asked the governor his opinion
of Roosevelt: 'There Is great sens in a
lot that he says, but there Is such a bock-
suredness about him that he stirs up doubt
In me all th time.' Turning to Lamont,
he asked: 'Dan, what was that you quoted
to me that some on said of Macaulay, that
he wished be was as sure of ona thing a
Macaulay was of all thlngsT Yes?' Then
to me: 'That fits Roosevelt Then h
seem to be so very young.'
It was In 1881 that Roosevelt Introduced
a number of bill relating to th city and
county of New York, some of them re
ducing fee offices to salaried offices. He
passed them with great effort 'and against
serious opposition. '
"One day after the legislature had ad
journed and Roosevelt was in attendance
on the republican convention at Chicago
that nominated Blaine, the governor, at
work on the thirty-day bills,' as the passed
measures left unacted upon by the execu
tive on adjournment were called. In pursu
ance of his habit to talk out what was
on his mind to any one in whom he had the
slightest degree of confidence, said to the
Old Political Reporter: 'I shall have to
veto most of those Roosevelt reform bills.
Not that I object to th principles Involved,
but th bills are so loosely drawn that they
will be as laws ineffective and give endless
"A day or two later, while walking down
Stat street In Albany, I met Roosevelt,
Who: was on his way home from Chicago
and who had stopped off at Albany to look
after hi legislation. He immediately asked
what th governor had done with his bills.
I replied that as yet th governor had don
nothing, but- that I thought that he In
tended to veto soma of them. Without seek
ing to know why, Roosevelt exclaimed:'
" 'He mustn't do that. He mustn't do that,
can't have that. I won't let him do it
I'll go up and see him at once.'-
-He fairly flew up tha hill. Having In
my mind that old stock problem as to what
would be the result of an irresistible force
meeting an Immovable body and perceiving
som fun ahead, I followed after into the
executive chamber.
"The contest was begun Immediately by
Roosevelt's asking what th governor pro
posed to do about his bills.
" 'Mr. Roosevelt,' replied tba governor, 'I
must veto them. While I'm not opposed to
th principles involved th ' bills are so
loosely drawn that it they were made laws
the city and county of New York would
b plunged into prolonged and expensive
"Roosevelt bristled up Immediately and
after stating that th main thing was th
establishment of the principle and com
bating the Idea that litigation must follow
he went Into a forecful argument, In which
ha used the most vigorous language, pound
-ing the desk for emphasis. Finally he con
cluded with these words:
ou must not veto those bills. You
cannot You shall not I can't hav It, and
I won t hav It'
" 'Mr. Roosevelt' said th governor, alt
ting up very straight In nis chair, 'I am
auing to veto those bills.
"And his fist cam down on th desk with
a solid wbaok.
"Th Irresistible force bad been smashed
on th Immovable body!
"Roosevelt fell back In hi chair, declar
ing it was an outrage to overturn a year'
work in that way. Lamont went to the
window and looked out on th green in
an endeavor to get rid of th broad smile
that was plastered on bl face.
"With hard and stubborn front Cleveland
turned to hi work and th Interview waa
over. Th bills war vetoed."

there are many Japanese army Instructors
In the Chines army, but their services are
gradually being dispensed with, as the
Chines learn th army tactic and become
accustomed to their own officers. . There
are also a large number of German military
Instructors In th Chines army, as well
as French and other nationalities. A spirit
of patriotism is also coming to the front

The Berlin Lokal Anselger comes as close
as the average foreign critic In measuring
American traits and results. In support of
Its assertion that "Americans are bad
losers," th Anselger cite th fact that
after every exhibition of the national game,
base ball, the crowd is aocustomed to as
sault and brutally maltreat th defeated
team as revenge for lost bets." This native
peculiarity has escaped th notice of ad
mirers of clean sport who usually hasten
away from th bleachers before the end
of the gam and rarely see th unhappy
riulsh noted by the foreign critic. More in
sorrow than in anger let It be admitted
that the evil complained of cannot he
remedied so long as th management fires
tne righting blood of the crowd wffh pink
pop and permits the visiting team, in vio
lation of the rules of hospitality, to steal
bases openly and brazenly. There are
limits to American patience which visiting
teams cannot overstep with safetv. "Kill.

There are two of them a republican col
onel and a democratlo colonel the first
standing for success; the second for failure.
Not a docade ago, or about that time, the
democratic colonel was the most consplclous
personality in th republic, though a cap
tain without a victory. Since 1901 the re
publican colonel, like another Corlolanus,
has been "every man himself."
It Is amusing to not th view each party
takes of It own colonel. Ia th republican
camp they do not seem to know exactly
what their colonel is going to do, but all
alike, regular and Insurgent . are agreed
that he Is thinking of ajid will work for the
exaltation of tha O. O. P.
On th other hand. In th democratic
camp there Is a feeling, amounting to In
cipient alarm If not demoralising panic, that
their colonel Is a bull in a china shop. This
impression Is not confined to th "sane"
contingents, but pervades th ranks of th
crank as well. And even enthusiastic
Bryan men of 1908 are asking the portentous
question; "Is our colonel for us; and If so,
what does he mean?"

And at this writing the democracy of
Indiana, with fear and trembling,' ia debat

asset?" Until now the Indiana democracy
was ready to swim the " Wabash to hear
the "Peerless One" make a speech; but
In the impending campaign the consensus
