closed in the sure-thing' predictions

I The Third Party Call
The call for a national convention
to serve as the foster parent of a new
political party has duly made its' ap
pearance, but it must be disappoint
ing to those who expected something
to electrify the country. It fixes the
name as the "national progressive"
party, and Invites co-operation of all
who are dissatisfied with the old par
ties, but it is signed only by adher
ents of a Bingle presidential candi
date, one-sixth of the states and all
of the territories being unrepre
sented, and only three of the sub
scribers professing to have been
previously democrats. ; T '
In ' context the call reads very
much like other calls issued ; from
time to time' for other new parties
that were going to remedy, long
standing evils overnight,' and put
the old parties out of business at
the first skirmish. The projectors of
these new parties have always been
cocksure of a widespread and crying
need for them, and convinced that
the old parties had completely out
lived their usefulness; that the bosses
were all bad bosses except those en
listed under their own flag, and that
there would be a general popular up
rising for their standard bearers as
scon as they were in the field.
Yet it should be remembered that
since the republican party emerged
nearly sixty' years ago from the cru
cible of negro slavery, no new party
has met with any measure of. suc
cess in the national political arena.
If this one is from the outset to mark
the. exception, it will have to over
turn all our historic precedents.
C , Mexico's JCe&l Fighter.
General Huerta's occupation of
Chihuahua, the rebels' stronghold,
puts the revolution down on its last
legs and drives Orozco Into guerrilla
warfare. According to the rebel chief,
himself, this is the last of organized
fighting, and must, therefore, be
taken as the beginning of the end of
the present revolt. How long tho
fragmentary band of bushwhackers
can hold Out against the growing on
slaught of the federals no one can
tell, but Orozco's own utterance is
impressively doleful. 5 ' s v
' Out of It all, General Huerta looms
up as the one man, on'hls side, save
possibly Madero himself, who has
proved himself a real fighter, ex
celling the lnsurrecto enemy both in
strategy and fighting. He has known
what to do with ground gained. He
has not suffered a serious reverse.
And he has had to combat methods
of resistance more savage and bru
tish than the annals of modern war
fare contain 1
" Taxes, v ,
Taxes form a dry subject at best
and particularly unattractive in hot
weather, yet death and taxes are
Inevitable and unescapable,' and the
sixe of the tax burden, is determined
not when payable in December, or
May but when the assessment and
levy are made In June and July.
The reason why we have no con
trol over the amount of taxta we
murt pay Is the multiplicity 0 our
tcutng authorities. Our tax ntt is
not made by the city council, but Is a
combination of levies independently
made by the Water board and the
School board, as well as by the coun
cil, Then, we have county'tates im
posed by the County board, and state
taxes imposed by the state authori
ties, and when they are all added to
gether and rolled into one, the tax
payer weaders how the aggregate
got to big. ' ''
What is the solution of the prob
lem? will be asked. It is the reduc
tion of independent tax levying
authorities, and the centering of re
sponsibility in as few places as pos
sible. ; T. -

right to engage in a spectacular war

In th soft bours of summertime, when
the mind . of the man or woman, looking
toward th hills and th se&sbor Is filled
with flitting visions of some atavistlcajiy
suggested past, of primordial delights in
th days of prlmitlv race blessedness,
when all' the time was sounded upon th
bells of paradise, how fin a thing Is it
that the present moment falls to fill th
volume of th life. Th present moment
1 filled with business and laden with
worry or Imperative with social demands,
it is the common factor of time. It Is
the unit ml of living. It la th unsenti

moment stands for lrksomenass, for duty,
for doing. It baa no character because
it has no past It has no heritage because
It has no future. Away, then, with th
present moment Let It not bring Its de
mand with It during th season of va

Iwtead of the present moment, un
couth and commonplace as it Is, th mind
turns to the past and back from th
mists of reminiscence com pictures that
are worth more than the product of th
old masters. Back from th day that

that flit th galleries of th mind. They
ere mostly neglected, often covered with
th fin dust of time, but they ar there,
nevertheless. The present moment stands
at th door. Thrusting it aaid as an Im

Whstever happens, this old land
Will hold its own and keep it stand
Whatever happens, it will swing
True to th purpose and th ring -Of
growth and progress and th prime
High usage of the golden time.
Whatever happens, don't you fear
This old land won't be bright with cheer.
Whatever happens, It will keep
Its onward course toward the steep.
And ollmblng slowly to the day
Break through the clouds that bar Its
way. . "
Whatever happens, this old land ; -Will
trlve three cheers and clap Its hand,
And taking breath for one more, sprln
Go onward to the higher thing
For which the fathers, true a gold,
Strove in the mighty days of old.
Whatever happens let 'em fight
The old land always comes out right: -The
saving common sense of men
Brings back the balanced power agilr.
And out of chaos and of night
The old land turns up sound and right.
Whatever happens let "em split;
This old land will not wince a bit,
But greater than all.weakness shown
By party strife, come to her own 1
Through an unconscious human will
That help hr kep the right road tl!l.
