But since these honors go according

shows how shifting have been the
sands of northern democracy; or, we
might say, the democracy, since the
south, of course, votes the ticket by
tradition and habit. There has been
no coherent democracy north of 'Ma
son's and Dixon's line since 1896. The
old organization that year went down
with the "crown of thorns" and the
"cross of gold" and did not come up
again until temporary disaffection In
republican ranks permitted Us resur
rection. Many democrats believe that Mr.
Bryan long ago determined that If he
could not be president, neither could
any other democrat not of his school
and naming during his day. Thus far
none has, and thus far none seems to
have any bright prospect of It. Mr.
Bryan Is still on hand. He says so
himself; says that while no longer a
candidate for office, he remains in
politics. The party will be short
sighted to attempt to reckon upon
plans for 1912 without him. Let it
look again at the Sixty-second con

Uncle Joe Spurns the Stage.
Some harsh things have been said
of Uncle Joe Cannon. He has been
called the most tyrannical speaker
that ever mauled the house with a
gavel. He has been assailed as a czar
representing "the interests." He has
even been accused of being a common,
every-day millionaire. But he pro
poses that no man may with Impunity
charge him with aspiring to the stage.
He refuses, at the age of 75, to become
a monologue artist; he declines a
golden opportunity to shine as a gate
money performer and no money can
tempt him from his high resolve. He
burled back at a keen-visloned pro
moter not long ago an offer that might
have turned green with envy the eyes
of other great statesmen. Now, at
the zenith of his career or, to be
strictly correct, a little on the leeward
side of his zenith he refuses to con
sider an offer of $500 a night for 100
nights to peddle preachments for a
lyceum bureau, he to choose his own
subjects and name his dates.
. , It is a fine thing to. poaeesa courage
enough to say, "No" under "such cir
cumstances. Possibly It may set a
wholesome example to aome of his
ambitious colleagues; ' possibly 1t may
even influence' his distinguished suc
cessor, who, himself, is something of
a popular idol on the lecture platform.
But It ought to comfort Champ Clark,
for it assures him of the advantage of
Mr. Cannon's advice and counsel in
how to wield a gavel. No one can
doubt that with congress In extra ses
sion this Is going to be a hard season

mercial value. The crowd demands
an "is." It wants no "has-beens."

in concealing its motive for this move

because they did not come to Victor Rose
water aid In preventing the appointment of
Cadet Taylor. Wless his dear little heart;
most of the insurgent republicans In Ne
braska know that Senator Brown belongs
to the breed of cata who scratch their
friends and purr to their enemies. They
also know that If It waa not for The
Omaha Bee, Fremont Tribune and a few
other papers that were loyal to Norrls
Brown that he" would not be a United
States senator, but be would today be a
briefless barrister at Kearney. We all
know what he tried to do to Ross Ham
mond and to many others who were his
best friends, then why not give Victor
Rosewater the same kind of a dose. Norrls
Brown Is by nature a base Ingrate and we
have Just as much respect for a common
horsethlef as we have for a political In
grate. Norrls Brown la a pussyfooter and
a trimmer and the voters are onto his
trickery, they will give him what's com
ing to him at the next election.

Minneapolis Journal: Bailey has never
put his name on a good law, or done .any
thing that could by any stretch of charity
be called statesmanlike, lie has ability,
no doubt, but It Is a useless ability because
there Is no confidence that he represents
himself or his constituents. Bailey could
well be spared from the United States sen
ate. He might have gone out with Hale,
Kean, Scott anit some more of that Ilk

PETULANCE OF JOE BAILEY.
Borne men succeed by working hard
With pick or spade or pen,
But not a few still get ahead
By working other men.
There was a young man In Tlmhuctno
Who said to the maid that be d tuck tot
"1 have loved you, sweet Ruth,
Pnr o venr that's thA truth!'1
he said; "that a a lie wen stuca to. -
"Nevada, 'tis of thee,
Sweet state of liberty,
Of thee I sing.
State where our fathers flee,
Stnte that sets mothers free
Marriage, because of thee.
Hath lost its sting."
When women votes came Into style.
We let them pass and had to smile;
But now the harem skirt s the fad
They've taken all the rights from dad.
But I won't countenance this thing.
I am going to smash the fad. by Jing!
If my wife Says she's going to wear 'em
By heck I'll go and get a harem.

As novelist might win esteem.
His works, 1 trow, would be the scream

Pittsburg- Dispatch: So the' country can
not lose him. Nevertheless the opinion will
prevail that when a seator of mature years
ndopts the childish attitude of "I won't
play," he should be left to come out of
that mood on his own Initiative.
Washington Post: It will be a source of
satisfaction to the people of the entire
country that Senator Bailey la to remain
In the senate to achate the treat questions
confronting the statesmen of today, throw
ing his great strength to the Gibraltar of
reason In the United States tho constitution.
New Tork Sun: What an actor In heavy
melodrama Joe Bailey would have made!
It seems inartistic to remind him that the
Arizona constitution and such maniac
notions are not to be beaten or weakened
by theatrical demonstrations. ' He re
minds us Btrongly of a Chinese who hangs
himself to spite and haunt his neighbors.
Ixiulsvllle Courier-Journal: It ' Is a new
Idea that a legislator must resign because
his colleagues do not accept his views
that he "will not play" unless he can run
the game to suit himself. If Senator Bailey
Is going to resign every time he finds him
self In a minority of his party In the senate
he Is likely to do more resigning than any
New York Tribune: Mr. Bailey was
right In his resistance to the ill considered
radicalism of the Arizona constitution, es
pecially its recall of judges. If he had
quit the senate as a protest against his
party's attitude on that subject his prestige

She dabbed some powder on her nose.
"But I rejected him lHt week"
She rubbed some rouge upon her cheek.

Man rides along the level land.
And up the inoun.an steep;
He Journevs over wastes of tan. I,
And billowy waters deep;
He glides o'er streams ny sun unseen.
In subterranean caves;
And, hidden In a submarine.
He slips between the waves.
Man bravea the terrors on the way
To a far frigid goal.
And on, undaunieii, nittht and day. '
He sledges to the pole;
He invlrs the great bird that swings
In careless circle, hie.ll,
Then builds an aeroplane and flings
Himself across the sky.
Man floats on fluctuant waves of thought.
Steered by a mystic helm:
And oft In chariots tinwruiiKht.
Ho runs thruUKh Fancy's nalur,
He travels ever and afar.
And "hitching his wagon tu a Star."
Gains the eternities.

Tackles the Theory of Kvolntlon an
"I am not yet convinced that man is
lineal descendant of lower animals, but
If anyone takes pleasure In tracing hla
ancestry back to monkeys I would be the
last to Interfere with him. The theory of
evolution la a dangerous theory, for if
man from monkeys, why not monkeys from
man? I have en them going in both
directions. Then the theory or evolution
doea not explain the mystery of life."
These, the latest worda of the silver
tongued Bryan upon the theory of evolu
tion, will breed, we fear. In most normally
educated people a desire to revert to the
practices of the long-forgotten past and
hurl a cocoanut at the seasoned orator of
the Platte. It would be hard to find a
man of Mr. Bryan's prominence In English
public life who would be guilty of an
equal number of Ineptitudes In the same
space and on tba same theme. Mr. Bryan
haa stolen for Chautauqua time which
should have been spent la reading con
