A Year of Politici Ahead.
Although the common complaint I
that we have too much politics, and
the constant cry Is for a rest from
political controversy, the duration o
the presidential campaign seems to
be lengthening rather than shorten

the battle of 1912. and there Is no,""" '. cinircn. .n mo
escaping a solid yesr of politics
ahead. I'eople may debate whether
this Is a good thing or a bad thing;
they may lament Its repressing influ
ence upon business; but the stern re
ality is there that In this grent and
glorious republic we have politics be
cause we want It, and we want poli
tics because we like it. Kew, If any,
subjects appeal so Ftrongly to so
many people at the same time, and
no subject Is able to hold popular In
terest so steadily and continuouHly as
does that of politics.
More than 1,1,000,000 will next
year march up to the ballot lux and
express their choice as between those
who aspire to head the national gov
ernment for the ensuing four years,
and the year of politic that Is to pre
cede this momentous act is the term
at school for their education and
preparation. The year ahead is to
bo a year of politics, but it will bo
worth while as the stimulating leaven
A Friend in Need.
"A friend In need Is a friend in
deed," runs the old adage, and it Is
sad, but true, that wn usually have
to meet with adversity in order to
test our friends. The fair-weather
companion who takes to cover at the
first . sign of threatened storm Is
found wanting at the crucial moment.
His previous professions of devotion
are proved to have been hollow, and
Instead of resembling a strong staff
to lean upon, his promlso turns out
to be a fragile reed. It Is the friend
who stands firm through thick and
thin, who, though unwilling to over
look or even to excuse mistakes and
misdeeds, yet holds out a helping
hand over the hard places, and asks
only a sincere effort at si-lf-help,
who really counts.
. People are ofteu mistaken in their
friends, but the discerning judge of
huliian nature can frequently separate
the genuine from the spurious as he
goes along. It Is for us to cultivate
and strengthen the friendships In
which we have confidence, and to
waste as little time aa possible on
those we have reauon to suspect. A
tried friend, like money in bank,
makes us feel easier to know it Is
there, and can be had when necessity
, Triie : friendship, however, Is re
ciprocal. The man who would accept
the tribute of a friend must also be
wjlllng to give It to the extent of
his ability no matter whether the ex
change, be-disproportionate. Without
the friend In need, life would be
much more empty, and Its enjoyment
far less keen.
Mri. Pankhunt'i Address.
ThoBe who heard Mrs. Pankhurst
speak on woman suffrage must have
been Impressed with her intenscness,
her lucid argument aud the fact that
woman's need of tho ballot appears
to bo much more urgent In Great
Britain than In the United States.
No matter how radically opposed
to woman suffrage one may be, he
cannot possibly fall to give a respect
ful hearing to the cause when pre
sented with the fairness, earnestness
and logic which characteiixed tho ad
dress of the distinguished leader of
jilm militant suffragettes of Great
Britain; ' Her diction and delivery
are elegant and her entire presence
admirable; All ,tb,ls does much to
command respectful attention for tho
principles Mrs. Pankhurst advocate.
Taking conditions as Mrs. Pank
hurst pictures them In Kngland and
lu this country as we know them to
be, they are not identical, and one
muy even see no Immediate necessity
of giving votes to women In the
United States and at the same time
sympathize with the struggling
women iu Kngland. Heralded as sho
h:is been by sensational report of her
militant methods, Mrs. Pankhurst
brings, not only a complete refuta
tion lnt her gentle manner, but like
wise a persuasiveness that Is really
eloquent lu its reach. Like many of
the great women who have led
woman's rights In the United Stutes,
this quiet little English woman bus a
way of presenting ber cause that
wins respect for herself.
The Boy and the Home.
Many good men and women goiii
by the name of reformers habitually
complain at the moral and civic lax
ity of the times. They tell us this
looseness is worwe than it used to be;
thut standards aro lower, w rona more
rampant. The grown-up inUdiously
compares the youth of today with the
young of yesterday and all agree that
the man lu public lire Is not w hat he
used to be in scrupulous fidelity to
As a matter of course, the aitgre
gate of error must be greater today
tbau iu former days in our country,
for we are growing at such tremen
dous bouuds, but is the average of
eiror greater? If it is, why? What
does that argue for all our uplift and
reform movements? If the boy today,
furuishesMs not as tractable, not as obedient,
jnot as courteous, as wus the boy of
other days, hy so? The former boy
did not have all theBe aids and sgcn -
cles to help lilm be good and sweet.
AII he had was "ma" and "pa" and
f I home, sweet home. Nor were such
safeguards thrown about the conduct
of our public men In former years.
Sometimes a sober, second thought
suggests that posnibly society is trying
to do too much for the boy, to say
.w . . 1 , 1 n . 9 . 1 . if 1 . . I . i ....
In divers spheres of public action. An
expert teaches him this, another that
find so on, until there Is really little
left for bis father and mother to dn
for him. Can it be possible that so
ciety Is overshooting the mark? If
the boy of yesterday was a tamer,
better lad than his brother of today,
Jl'cn it must have been because he had
fewer temptations and more simple
home-training. After all there Is no
Influence like good home Influence
for tho boy and only when home In
fluence is not good, should outsiders
step In and preempt this function.
Uplift for the Pulpit.
Colonel Watterson declares he
would have all ministers of the gos
pel as free to discuss the things of
this world as the statesman or the
Journalist, "but with this difference,
that the objective point with them
shall bo the regeneration of man
through the grate of God and not the
winning of olflco or tho exploitation
of parties and newspapers."
Now, more than at any other time,
perhaps, the need Is for a worldly-
wlso and broadly" Independent clergy,
but nonetheless devout and conse
crated. Tho larger function of the
church Is not the propagating of any
particular dogma or creed, not neces
sarily the recruiting of its ranks, but
rsther the wrvlco it can render in
tho solution of mundane problems.
Hut how can that be dono unless
the churchman .knows what those
problems are and knows how to get
at them? A prominent layman, ad
dressing a body of churchmen In
Kansas City the other day, said many
churchmen are too ignorant of tho
sins and evils of tho world to be of
useful service in dealing with them.
Ho urged them to glvo more thought
and study to these things, to the so
cial evil, for instance, abhorrent and
repellant as it is to refinement and
culture. It la one thing to condemn
without knowledge of what Is con
demned; It Is quite another thing to
know conditions and to know how to
Colonel Watterson places upon the
church the largest share In this, great
work of mankind's uplift. "Jour
nalism," he says, "is yet too unripe
to more than guess at truth from a
slnglo side. 'Tho statesman stands
nminjy for political organism. Until
he dies he la suspected. The pulpit
remains, therefore, still the moral
hope of the universe and the spiritual
light of mankind."
Hut what of the hope and what of
the light? Scholastic efficiency, deep
piety, tender sympathy and. emotion,
not even oratorical power, will sus
tain either and give to the pulpit this
penetrating potency unless there Is
back of it all a searching sympathy
for the. world as It is, a fellow feel
ing, a worldly wisdom, i breadth of
view and the virility and Indepen
dence In mind and action.
Rouirh Road for Health Bureau.
Senator Owen of Oklahoma has
given due notice of his Intention to re
Introduce his bill for a national health
department at Washington. He pro
motes It as a move toward the con
servation of human life and argues
that we are employing scientific meth
ods to protect our food and domestic
animals, while neglecting that of the
man himself. He gives a money tide
to his project and declares that, valu
ing a human life at $1,700, the Unltel
States loses $1,000,000,000 every
year needlessly and another $1,000.-
000,000 from Incapacitation through

session of congress, lost out, is des
tined to travel a rough road when it
comes up again. It arouses the Ire and
opposition of other than tho so
called orthodox schools of treating

uutua.il uiB-Bti. r rom tins source
comes the charge that the bill Is In
the Interest of a medical trust aud
that the question "touches the liberty
of the individual, that touches
the home, that touches the whole
life." Such an argument is made
by Senator Works of California
and lauded by the Christian Science
Monitor of Boston. The San Fran
cisco Call declares the proposed plan
would "create a bureau of domicili
ary Interference and would consti
tute an intolerable invasion of the
i right of private Judgment
tian Scientists, of course, oppoae the
bill, so do some of the osteons! ha
and no doubt an tbe other various
schools or cults not counted in the
orthodox class. The argument is in
sisted upon that medicine will never
be an exact science and that every
perbon should be left free to choose
his own physician and treatment.
To all such opposition the reply is
made that the same gigautlc Inter
ests that so bitterly condemned Dr.
Wiley and his reforms are the real
opponents of this bill. And so the
fight goes on. The country appar
ently la not aroused to the prime
necessity for such a department to
come to the rescue, though undoubt-
edly if a feaMble way could be
fouud for the federal government .o

life without unduly antagonizing the
various faith cults, It would be wel-
corned as a forward step.
Aviator Rodger thinks he baa
fathomed one Important problem in
the mystery of aerial travel, that Is
that the common rause of many
deaths Is ethereal asphyxia, inducing
a somnlpathollc condition, which, It is
easy to see, Is almost certain to prove
fatal. As he is convinced, tbla deadly
ether lurks in the pocket of the
tipper air strata and breathes Its
noxious breath Into tha senses of the
victim before he realises It and, nine
times out of ten, he falls Irresistibly
and unconscious to hla doom.
At precisely what altitude this
ethereal asphyxia is encountered, or
the depth of tho strata it occupies,
Is not stated, but this much seems
true: if the theory of young Mr.
Rodgers be correct, then certainly
aerial navigation as a practical util
ity has run up against a serious snag
at the outset, except under favorable
condltiona where lines of travel can
be kept close to earth. For the num
ber of people who cannot endure high
altitudes is largo. Tbcy are unfit
even for the rarifled air of the lofty
mountains and many of these peo
ple are unable to tell until too late
that they are thus constituted.
It remains to be proved whether
Mr. Rodgers, who recently bad quite
a fall himself, is really correct In his
version of the causes of death of
Ely. Hoxscy and Johnston. There is
no question at all about tho atmos
pheric rarefaction In certain strata,
but whether it has the effect de
scribed must be determined by the
Court House Marriagei.
A New York Judge who has his
office In the city hall was recently
quoted by the New York Herald as
Baying that nearly all the couples
who apply to his court for divorce
were married in the city hall.
That should not, of course, pre
judge these marriages performed In
city halls and court houses that do
not end In divorce. Many happy
unions are formed before magistrates
in their offices, and so these must
not suffer in name becauso all do
not terminate as happily.
New York, possibly, ia no different
from many other cities in this experi
ence. It cannot be gainsaid that
very many of these marriages are the
result of brief and unwise courtship,
the product of impulse or passion. It
la no wonder, therefore, that the per
centage of their failure is large.
Here is another suggestion for those
who are Interested In devising ways
and means of remedying the growing
divorce evil all over this country. If
there were fewer of those uade-while-you
wait matrimonial unions, in
city halls, court houses, preachers'
studies and elsewhere, certainly there
would be fewer legal and Illegal sep
arations and fewer blighted lives.
Hut this, hop-sklp-and-Jump fash
ion of going to the altar Is not con
fined to the public official. All too
many clergymen are willing to take
chances on couples of whose anteced
ents they know nothing. These
churchmen have a duty In this con
nection even more serious than that
of the magistrate and It is a sad
day when they become the least bit
callous to that duty. It Is well enough
to talk of marriages being made la
heaven, but the real ambassadors of
that kingdom can help to see that
more of them are made In heaven
by exercising more discriminating
vigilance to prevent the untimely
mutch. There is, after all, not much
for which a minister of the gospel
should strive In simply seeing how
many marriages he can perform.
It's Just possible that the tri
umphant re-election by the biggest
majority of all of our fellow towns
man, Frank L. Mailer, as state uni
versity regeut over Lincoln's pre
ferred choice, may have had some
thing to do with Jarring loose that
medical school appropriation.
Our socialist friends are unfortu
nate in the fact that their most noted
leaders are foreign-born, and thereby
disqualified from aspiring to be presi
dential candidates. This may be
overcome in time, but right now It Is
a real handicap.

York, tho progress of which hus been
marked by "riot, mayhem and murder,"
to use the words of one newspaper on the
scene, was caused by an order of Cotn
mlfsioner Kd wards compelling night work
In the collection of garbage. "The real
reason why night work Is objected to,"
to nuote another New York newspaper,
"la that there are no tips In night work,
no one awake and around to give tips."
Springfield Republican: In various
quarters the war on tipping Is having re
suits. In Philadelphia, the managers of
several hotels have agreed on a reform,
and last week the Continental began by
breaking off tho contract for the "cloak
room privileges" which had been given
to a New York firm tnr five years. In
this case the full absurdity of the tipping
system was shown. The boys, supposed
to be benefiting by the liberality of
patrons, wero really paid Jl a week and
put all tips in a box for their employer.
To guard against their retaining any part
of what was given, their uniforms were
made without pockets and they were vigi
lantly watched. Does the public really
enjoy giving away dimes and quarters to
smart busln"s men? Then why does It
not pay double fares on the trolley cars
instead of clamoring periodically for 3
cent farts? '
