Can Ton Beat It?
"Can you beat It?" asks our local
democratic organ. Heally, we don't
believe anyone can who looks dispas
sionately upon the campaign of bluff,
Muster end deception which the
democrats have been waging locally.
First. A hue and cry has been
raised over-alleged Illegal voting in
the primary election, which election
was held on the registration lists
made by the democratic gang last
year to pile up a majority for Mayor
"Jim" for governor and Hitchcock for
senator. if any fraud was per
petrated In that registration, It was
perpetrated by and for tho very
detnotrats who now neek to charge It
up to the republicans.
Can you beat It?
Second. A part of the democratic
howl has been directed against the
Judges and clerks of election, but it
develops that a large majority of
the election officers are democrats
named by the boss of tho democratic
machine, himself now running as a
candidate, and that the democrats
absolutely control a majority of the
election boards In every precinct In
the county but three. And still they
want people to believe that the ballot
boxes are In danger of being raped
Can you beat It?
Third. The democrats are crying
out that "the machine" must be
balked and dislodged by filling the
court houso with democrats. How
would they have us smash the ma
chine? In order to smash tho ma
chine they want the office of clerk
of tho district court turned over to
"Boss" Flynn, chief push of the
street gang, and a patron saint of
tho Dahlman club.
Can you beat it?
Fourth. In order to smash the
machine they want the sheriff's of
fice turnod over to what "Jerry"
Howard deslgnntea "as a rich youth,"
but, In fact, a mere cog in tho demo
cratic machine, and a putty puppet
for "Charloy" Fanning, king of the
paving combine and democratc chan
cellor of the exchequer.
Can you beat It?
Fifth. In order to smash the ma
chine they want the position of police
Judge conferred on a common ward
heeler who has been drawing double
pay as Dahlman'a police court clerk
and Fannlng's bookkeeper at one and
the same time.
Can you beat it?
Sixth. In order to smash the m
chine they want us to re-elect tb'
democratic county commlsHlgner .as
one of the democratic combine that
has" been, dealing in court house con
tracts, and himself perpetrating all
sorts of petty graft.

8eventh When. pretending , 'a
sense of decency, Senator Hitchcock
and bis democratic newspaper called1
for repudiation of an accidental nom
inee for the School board on the re
publican ticket, unfitted morally for
uch a position, The Ueo promptly
joined In the demand. At the same
time The Bee called upon Senator
Hitchcock likewise to show good
faith by repudiating Just one im
moral candidate on the democratic
ticket, which he knows, or ought to
know, contains at least one candi
date aa unfit, if not more so, than
the repudiated republican, but up
to date he clings to his democratic
Can you beat it?
Eighth. Senator Hitchcock's same
democratic organ has been loudly
accusing the republicans of waging a
campaign of misrepresentation and
uiud-sllnglng, when the only, mud
sllnglng so far haa been that of his
own paper, and Its fakes have be
come so coarse that when cornered
even he had to 'fess up and retract
some or his fabrications.

Tha. City u a Social Worker.
Municipal, state and federal gov
ernmenta are doing more every year
for the social and civic uplift. When
one takes the time to look at this
comprehensive scheme of what might
be called official philanthropy he
surely gets the healthful Impression
that more and more his government
la caring for him and concerning It
self minutely with his individual
welfare. Nothing tho state Is doing
quite so distinctively marks the dis
tance we have come In our deter
mination to get away from what U
slothful or Indifferent in the gov
ernments relation to society.
Bearing on this thought, it Is in
teresting to note that in New York
City, the Department of Health 1
Just now asking the taxpayers to in
crease its iinnual budget for 1912 by
52 per cent, to enable It to proceed
with Improved methods of medical
Inspection for school children, for
mere funds to fight consumption.
for better care of contagious dis
eases patients and for milk stations.
The department wUhea to maiutain
seventy-three milk statlona and for
this purpose alone aska a big In
crease over the present appropri
ation. To show that its work is not a
failure, the department discloses
that alnce It took control of the
city's milk the death rate of babies
haa been redued from 141.3 per
1,000 to 124.6. Of the 3,997 babies
cared for by the city at Its milk sta
tions from April to September, only
eighty-five died, less than I S per
New York la not the only city do
ing such work; tn fact, nearly every
American city Is engaged in various
degrees in similar enterprises and
so are the states and bo la the na
tional government. Tremendous re
sults for the good of humanity have
already been accomplished and yet
the work la only In Its inclplency.
The possibilities make us look back
with much more Incredulity than we
look forward to pictured goals. t
in an address to a confirmation
class In Washington last week, Card
inal Clbbons read the young people
a lecture on lntemperanre, not only
on Intemperance In drink, but alrio
Intemperance In language, and par
ticularly the Intemperance or gossip.
As quoted, he said:
OIiIm. do not gonnlp. I am aure you
are not likely to ba Intemperate In the
uso of xtrong drink, but Idle goKpIp la
Inte-nipetHnce of the groeaeat sort. I
beeeech you not to spend your apare
time In goanlp about your friends or
acquaintance)!. It In unkind and cruel.
This advice or the eminent church
man deserves to be taken home
everywhere. The evil or gossip Is
altogether too common and preval
ent. It is not confined to girls, nor
to women, for many men are alBO
prone to gossip. Where gossip con
sists of peddling suspicions and In
nuendoes, In exaggerating petty do
ings Into ominous acts. In passing
along hearsay tales and touching
them up In transit, It Is a most in
sidious force ror evil. It Is all the
more Inexcusable and despicable be
cause the victim has no opportunity
ror self-defense, but Is stabbed In the
darft, as It were, and the, damage
done can seldom bo repaired. The
cardinal's Injunction against gossip
should be repeated and reiterated by
every preacher and teacher In the
Priority in Tripoli.
Criticism of Italy for Invading
Tripoli with the purpose of acquiring
title to that part of the Turkish em
pire takes on new phase under the
light of history. Perhapa it will not
do to let one's sympathy for the
property owner carry him too rar
In condemning Italy ror wreBtlng
Tripoli from Turkey on the ground
of Turkey's prior claim to that por
tion of Africa. Without stopping to
discuss how Turkey gained Its hold
oo Tripoli, it Is, Interesting to ob
serve that It was several centuries
behind Italy In gong Into Tripoli.
,, Alleyno IrelanaV a student of trop
ical colonization, reaches back in his
tory for this observation in an interr
view published in the New York Tri
bune":"'' . ' '','7 7 -7''1'
Ho far as Tripofl ' la-' '"concerned. Italy
can at least claim a more ancient right
than Turkey, tof Italy founded a colony
In Tripoli In the year 11. C, and the
Itullan state of Amalfl, risa, Uanco,
and Vonlce bad settlements' In North
Africa centuries before Turkey invaded
and captured any part of Africa. As a
matter of faut, Turkey la a compara
tively modern ' participant ' In tha
"si ramble for Africa." hee first exploit
In that direction having been the sets
ure of Egypt In 1517.
It might also be shown that
Turkey has had control of Tripoli
only since about the middle of the
seventeenth century and that Italy
was given certain colonization rlghta
under the treaty following the
Russo-Turkey war In 1878, since
which time. Italy has been rapidly
colonising Its people In that coun
try, so much so that when the pres
ent conflict broke out the Trlpoll

Love for Liberty Human.
Does it tax people's faith to be
lieve that heathen China, superstiti
ous, idolatrous China, is about to be
come a republic? 'The question is
asked by the Independent of New
York, which wisely conceives that
the love for liberty is human before
It Is Christian. "It Is human rights
we proclaim when we talk ideally."
Quite true and it is nothing else but
human rights, human liberty, that
animates this revolution In China to
And why should enlightened peo
ple doubt China's becoming a re
public? What was the goal at
which the enlightened powers of the
earth aimed when they took up the
task of teaching China? Now, that
they get the ftrst dim glimpse of It,
perhapa atlll afar off. are they un
able to believe It? Is it too much for
their faith? They have made extra
vagant claims for the future of
China. Are they going to discredit
them so soon by a lack of faith In
the power behind them?
The leaven or civilisation has
worked Its way through centuries of
ignorance and superstition In all
parts of the world and it penetrated
the wall of China, Indeed, It la last
penetrating It now. Nothing could
be sudden In a country as old as
China. Should China next year or
r.cxt month pass from an empire Into
a republic that would not be sudden
because the process of changa has
been going on for years. Step by
ctep, China has been emerging from
her darkness. In recent years the
barbarous footwear of the women
goes off, the demoralising Institu
tion of opium eating trembles from
Its foundations, queues are cut, every
year China sends an Increased num
ber oi young men and women to
American schools and colleges, mod
em customs and wares are carried

chants have had an influence. Their
seeds have grown and are ready to
China not only may, It must, de
velop some form of more liberal gov
ernment. That Is tha Inevitable
logic of events. Her people adopt
r modern modes eagerly and do
ot give them up. Leaven worka
It h In out and so It Is working that
ay In China. The Chinese, bavin
round out what human liberty Is,
demand It In Its fullest form and no
power In that ancient empire can
hold back the onrush or that de-
Mills of Citizenship.
Tho highest service our colleges
and universities can render is the
production or good citizens. If they
can do that they will come up to the
level they should reach. President
Vincent, the new executive of the
University of Minnesota, seems to hit
the nail on the head when he says:
"The university should aim to serve
the commonwealth through individ
uals rather than to offer personal
privileges and advancement to a few
at state expense." Many people for
get that stato universities are main
tained by public money. Has not the
taxpayer the state therefore, a
right to demand the worth of his
money? And how Is he to get that
except in a well-rounded product, a
young man ready and prepared to
take up a useful part In the great
scheme of American citizenship?
The times are beset with roforms
and agitation. The reforms are
chiefly moral. That Is why they
cannot be so easily achieved by leg.
lslatlve enactment, which fixes limi
tations and penalties. Men are not
made honest or Just by law. The
state must depend for the civic bet
terment it seeks on the schools and
the universities, along with the home
and the church. Most men will ad
mit, In discussing this social abuse,
or that moral reform, that the goal
will be reached only through a steady
process of education. Our schools
and universities will, we repeat, per
form their best service to the state
when they give to It men trained for
citizenship, equipped with a keenly
developed sense of moral, political
and economic Justice and right.
