The Democratic Auril Chornt.
It Is the democratic play to keep
hammering Incessantly on President
Taft.wlth a View to creatine; a false
impression that his administration is
a failure because Mr. Taft Is the

This anvil chorus of democratic
knockers, however, is attuned to no
new political melody, but Is simply
repeating the noisy outcry which has
been .directed from the same source

and .that he ahould, therefore, be

nominee, who had been a palpable
failure as a military commander.

Hy by the democratic opposition

the 'endorsement of a second term,
and the same anvil chorus was kept
busy on Harrison, on McKlnley and
on ftoosevelt. The only praise the
democrats ever shower on republican
leaders falls to those who do not, In
their opinion, stand In the way of
Eight years ago, and again four
ears ago, Theodore Roosevelt was
the target for democratic assaults
and-accusations flrt charged with
swinging th big atlck to force his
own renomlnatlon, and again with
misuse of official authority to name
his successor In the White House.
Everybody realizes that Mr. Taft
has had some difficult problems to
deal, with, and embarrassing situa
tions to meet from tbe very day he
became president, but everyone who
wants to be fair with himself also
knows that his administration as a
whole has been a success and that
he -has been gaining In public euti
tdatlon and strength, particularly
since the reverse pendulum swing
that gave ua. a. democratic congress.
The anvil chorus of the democrats
will, however; be kept up all the
time that Mr. Taft la In the running,
but It remains to be seen whether it
will fool people any more now than
It baa In the past. It
J A Theatrical Failure.
, Is It going to be necessary fo
adapt the lines of serious drama to
the fickle standards of musical and
farce comedy to get It patronlied?
What caused the failure of the New
Theater; in ; New York was' lack of
patronage, t course. Its 'mission
waa to raise the stage to the lauda
ble level of educational influence,
yet It failed completely. ' Not, how
ever, because It did .not have the ac
tors It had the services of consum
mate artists but because consum
mate artists could not comDet iti
drawing power with . the fancy
dancer, tbe purveyor of doubtful
Jokes or the musical comedy atar.
It Is 'an unfavorable comment
upon tbe theater and tbe theater
goer,, on the theater because It has
cultivated the demand for the lower
grade of stage productions and on
the. attendant because he has been
susceptible to this cultivation. Of
course, the old answer will be that
the .tired mau of affairs" does not
care, for. the, heavier : entertainment
on, the atage. But the "tlred man
of. affairs" must not be thus nr.
Judged. - He should be" alio wed to
iui uiiuivii,, uvuaei no is not
the only person who goea to tbe
Nd matter about' that, the fact la
that the failure of a theater like this
one lb New York can reflect nn
credit upon the atage aa a really ele-
vatlng or refining force. The stage
used to claim for Itself more than
merely the inUaloo of amusing
"tired business men" or sordid-
minded men; it used to claim title

Premier Yuan Shi Kal rather sud

Evidently Dr. Wu's long contact and
experience with Americana Is bearing
fruit In this oldest of monarchies
and his services from now should
prove ef Incalculable value to China.
From press dispatches It has ap

republican triumph than anything

A week ago It did not seem at all

the finale has been reached. The

A century-old struggle against the co
ordinate" legislative power of the heredi
tary,' lords' of Groat Britain waa brought
to a close last June when the House of
Lords was forced to approve the restricted
veto, L.ll , passed by the Hons of Com
mons.' The certainty of the creation of
enough new peer to overthrow th two
thirds unionist majority ' convinced the
members' that' resistance was pfteless and
that'll were' wiser to preserve the pres
tige of 'the peerage from the' threatened
deluge of aobodles than fighting to the
last ditch! tTnder the new law a measure
passed jby . the House of Commons at
three successive sessions becomes a law

way .for the enactment ' of popular
nvaaures advocated by the liberal party
representing the democracy of the United

is pledged td Introduce next March. Im
portant constructive legislation of a social
and economic character marked the two

With practical unanimity the French
Chamber of Deputies ratified the Franco

summer month when France- undertook
to exercise In Morocco th police powers
conceded .by tha treaty of. Algeclraa.
Germany foresaw the absorption of the
territory by France and . forthwith dis
patched a gunboat to the port of Agadlr
on the Atlantlo coast. If .there wa to
be ' any,, division of ' territorial , loot the
kalrer' government desired to be within
reach. Explanations of the gunboat's
mission failed to satisfy France or Its
ally. Great Britain. Several warm note
were exchanged between th .allied pdw
er and Germany. War' feeling was
aroused and' unofficial bluster filled the
newspapers and emanated from political
leader on both sides. Th OUtcom of
th agitation and cogitation wa a sub
stantial recognition of French supremacy
In Morocco.' By th new treaty France

Inaugurated constitutional government
Two year prior to this event the puppet
hah entered Into a triple alliance with
Russia and Great Rritaln by which the
former was granted a "sph-re of In
fluence" In the north and the latter In
the south of Persia. Troops of both na
tions occupy portions of their respective
spheres. The signing of this treaty, was
th beginning of the end of Persia aa
an Independent state. A succession of
event this year, each revolving around
the American, William Morgan Shuater.
treasurer-general, are revealed as dove
tailed part of th plan, devised and exe
cuted by Russia. 8huter had made con
siderable progress In re-organising the
financial system of Persia, had collected
delinquent taxes, paid off many debts
and had, good prospects of puttlWg the
government firmly on Its financial feet
before. hla three years' contract expired.
Such an achievement would give the
Peralans self-confidence and popularise
constitutional government, two things
repugnant to th-Russian system. Ob
stacles were raised against Shuster at
every turn of the reform road. Objec
tion came from banker as well as from
mercenary governments. A brother of the
exiled shah - organised an Invasion of
Persia on Russian territory and was put
to flight on crossing the northern border.
As a penalty for the raid the Persian
government ordered the . seizure of the
brother's property In Persia. Russia pro
tested and' demanded a return of the
property and an apology for the "Insult"
cf confiscating property mortgaged to 'a
Russian. Persia, hoping to avert further
trouble, returned the property and apolo
gized. But Russia wasn t satisfied. A let
ter from. Shuster in th London Times,
In which Russia's motives were Impugned,
was then seized as a pretext for demand
ing the dismissal of Shuster. Persia was
obliged- to submit against Its will. Never
theless, because the dismissal was not
done as promptly a desired Russian
troop are marching over northern Per
sia, from Resht to Tabriz,, slaughtering
young and old, who manifest an outward
sign of disrespect for the wolf.

'Tis after Christmas time for you
To do the things you've promised to,
'Tla time to entertain a guest.
To sew a button on a vest.
To mako a call to Iron a shirt,
To sew a ruffle on a skirt.
'Tis after Christmas, time to think,
To read a book, to sleep a wink.
To have a heart, a soul to feel.
To eat a good, substantial meal,
There's even time for feelln' sick.
Now that tiler are uo stickers to lick.
'Tis after Christmas, now there's time
To put a thought or two in rhyme,
To laugh a laugh, to make a pun,
To black a shoe, to clean a gun,
To read the news, to catch a car,
To dally where the presents are.
'Tis after Christmas, time to sigh
For happier days when you and I,
our plans and labors still pursuing,
Kelt keenly pleasures found In doing.
And last of all. 'tis time, right here
To wish you a glorious, glad New Year.
