A Deserved Honor. .
In making Frank B. Kellogg pres

a deserved honor, which at the same

at the American bar, having
achieved his high position not only
by the conduct of Important private
and public litigation In which be

In the Kame of the Children .
In the name of 'oppressed juvenil

mediate and compulsory reform of
circus parades. We want something
done to compel the prompt perform
ance of the promise of a free street

time advertised . instead of making
these poor i little tots spend halt a
day under a baking sun waiting for
a go-as-you-please procession, mak
ing no effort to live up to the ad
vance agent's schedule.' We mean
this in'all seriousness. For a circus
to lure children out on the streets
and subject them to a tantalizing
wait or complete disappointment, is
an outrage -on the community. It
could be stopped by putting a penalty
clause into the license ordinance,
and exacting a forfeit for its ob

The colony of bounced and exiled rulers
greets a raw recruit. Mulal Hafld of
Morocco leaves the country for the coun- j
try's good and his own health and will !
make Paris the headquarters of his actlvl-
ties in the future. Besides the assur-1
ance of French esteem and consideration,
Mr. Hafld will enjoy a pension of 75,0W
a year out of the French treasury. This j
is balm for wounded feelings not often
bestowed upon ruling lias beens. Tho
toddling Pu Yl of China connected with
the national nursing bottle before retired
by the revolutionists, and Mohammed All
Mlrza was awarded a national dole in
consideration of leaving the country and
staying away. President Dlaa of Mexico,
Abdul Hamld of Turkey, Manuel of Port
ugal and lesser lights put out of business '
were retired uurrledly to admit of nego
tiation for pensions. The Moroccan
potentate remained in power long enough
to make the French dominant and the
pension comes as a reward for past fa
vors. Ever since the entrance of French
troops into Fes Mulal. Hafld has been
restive. Originally gaining power In Mo
rocco by raising the popular wrath
against his brother as a friend of the
Christians, he was Inevitably brought
into a position where French troops sup
plied his sole protection from the rebels
among Ms own people. Regarded by
them now as the traitor who sold out Ms
country, his abdication and withdrawal
from Morocco in fact has the character
of a flight from popular wrath. French
dispatches Indicate that a successor has
already been provided in an Infant son
of the abdicating sultan. Such a change
will be satisfactory to the French, who
will find It less difficult to govern In the
name of an Infant than to exercise actual
power in the name of a lull-grown sultan.
"Mntsnhito the Great."
William Elliott Orlffls, writing In the
North American Review for September,
pays a high tribute to the achievements
of the late emperor of Japan, and place
his emancipation - of the serfs- on. the
same plane with Lincoln's freedom of
the southern slaves. "I lived In Japan."
he writes, "when nearly one million of the
Emperor's subjects were outside the pale
of humanity and reckoned as Hl-nln (not
human). Victims of age-old religious
prescription or outcast from, obscure so
cial reasons, these followers of despised
occupations, butchers, leather-workers,

China's "Stronm Man." ;
To show that there are two sides to a
man as well as to a question,, a corre
spondent of the New York Sun, writing
from Shanghai, sketches Yuan 8ht Kal, !
president of the Chinese republic, in a
more attractive light than the "strong
man" Of China appears ' to most Amer
ican observers. Of the good he Is doing
the writer eays; "Perhaps no class ' In
China Is more enthusiastic over the work
already accomplished by President' Yuan
than are the foreigners and this is par
ticularly true of those In the big cities.
In a certain sense an industrial boom,
emotional prices arid subterfuges
the female criminal and could be
nended on to hand out Justice with
bark on. Say, girls, la Mr. Wayman
as Americans would call it has taken
hold of commercial and industrial life.'
This, following so soon after the chaos
and bewilderment of the revolution, is
considered to afford good evidence of the
strength of Yuan as head of the nation.
One of the strangest evidences of the
awakening of China is the popularity of
the regular army, which is growing rap
Idly. In times gone by It was almost
Impossible to get recruits for either the
army or the navy, and It is well known
that during the Chinese-Japanese war
hundreds, if not thousands of men, both
young and old, had their heads chopped
off because they refused to enlist. Condi
tions are so changed Jhat one finds It
difficult td believe that the same race
is In question. As a matter of fact the
recruiting offices are overrun with ap
plicants. 'It is the most remarkable thing.
I ever heard of.' said Colonel Fusada,
who is an officer on the retired list in the
Japanese army, this awakening of the
dragon. Everywhere these peace loving
people are talking about the army and
the navy, and what an Immense force
China will be in another ten years. And
they are right China will be the Germany
ot Asia, as Japan is now the Great
Britain, if the spirit of military progress
that has been awakened comes to full
fruition.' " , '
Rnaal In Persia.
Having effectively strangled the spirit
of independence In Persia, Russia pro
poses to make its grip permanent by
pushing the construction of the trans
Persian railroad, provided the treasury
of Its old friendand ally, France, will
advance the money. . France has no
direct political interest in the proposed
railroad through s the Russian zone of
Persia. England dislikes the project which
would open a land route to India. But
because of the certainty that the road
would be built with money obtained from
French bankers and therefore represent
ing the savings of the French people, the
leading Paris . papers are following the
matter closely and are anxious that the
relations between the "ally and the
friend" of France may be so maintained
that the road will be a safe venture.
Kitchener and others have declared
against the road, which, if it is com
pleted, must pass eastward out of the
zone of Russian Influence, Into the Eng
lish zone and Into Betuchistan. The
French editors, however, hold that fears
that a Russian invasion of India will be
Invited by permitting the road to be
built sre groundless.
At a Standstill. ' '
Official statistics for 1911 indicate an
approximate arrest of depopulation ' of
Ireland. For 1911 the total, number ' of
births was 101,758, of deaths 12,475, leaving
a surplus of 29,283. The emigrants num
bered 30,671, leaving a net reduction In
population of 1,290 for the year. For the
decade 1901-1911 the decline was but L7
per cent, against 6.2 per -cent for the pre
ceding decennial period. The dawn of the
brighter day so long anticipated Is at
hand. Land Ownership, increasing Indus,

THE AMERICAN CATO
By Bey. Thomas, B. Gregory. aJEi:
Silas Wright died sixty-five years ago-
August 27, 1847 at thes age of 62 years. '
Born at Amherst Mast. In 1795 and
graduated from the Mlddlebury college In
181E, he was admitted to the bar In 1819
and Immediately thereafter settled In
Canton, N. Y where he began tha prac
tice of law. x.
Pessimists are given to being Sceptical
upon the subject ot "honest lawyers," but
In spite of the pessimists there are such
lawyers, and Silas Wright was one of
them. In the practice ot his chosen pro
fession he was scrupulously honest and
rigidly just, and the man who did not
have a clean cause could find no advocate
In the Canton attorney. No retainer,
however splendid, was able to secure the
services of SUas'Wrigh in the defense pf
an unrighteous case.
Loving his work and thoroughly happy
in the midst of it, Wright gave no
thought to anything else. It Is said that
not once In his life did he seek office.
And yet office was thrust upon him time
and again by the people who knew his
sterling patriotism and integrity. By
rapid stages he became surrogate," state
senator, congressman, comptroller, United
States senator and governor and in every
Instance It was the office that sought
the man, rather than the man the office.
And when he had finished hie course,
Stricken down In his prime, his . hands
were absolutely clean. Not once did he
abuse the trust that was committed to
htm, riot once did he strain hie soul with
official corruption. Not one dollar ot the
people's money found it way into his
pocket unearned. Never was he false to
what his conscience marked Out for him
as his plain and simple duty. It was
Silas Wright who first voiced the Idea
that "public oftloe is a public trust," and
unfailingly did he live up to his high and
noble conviction. .
Upon his little farm In the Immediate
vicinity of Canton Wright worked, when
not officially engaged, as faithfully as
any of the hired laborers. Like the old
Roman Cato, he loved the earth, and In
working In it and In "seeing things grow"
he found his deepest and most genuine
satisfaction. In his big straw hat blue
shirt and overalls, the great man might
have been seen at any time during the
recesses of congress busy with his piow,
hoe or Scythe upon his farm.
A firm believer in the word of God and
the pHnelples ot Thomas Jefferson, simple
as a little culld tnhls disposition end
habits, honest as the day was long and a
patriot so true that he would cheerfully
have preferred death to the betrayal ot
bis responsibility to the people, SUM
Wright lived and died an honor to his
state and nation.
We cannot afford" to forget such men.
The remembrance ot them, especially in
times like these, will act as a tonic upon
our spirits and help us to fight for the
return of the time when there shall be
more men In public life like (Silas Wright
men who shall represent us and not mil
represent us, who shall honestly serve us,
and not rob and disgrace us; who shall
have enough of the soul of honor in them
to make them the conscious servants of
the people rather . than their would-be
masters and despollers.

and not to Bliss?
Springfield Republican: It should not be
forgotten that there waa a time when the
colonel found Senator Penrose useful and
used him without compunction upon all
convenient occaadona. Mr. Penrose ia far
from an admirable , figure , la American
public life, but those Who have followed
his career seem to have reason for as
serting that he is a more desirable citizen
today, when the colonel excoriates him,
than he was when the colonel relied upon

; I alladelphia Record; On one of the
transcontinental roads there is a station
whose name is spelled "Eurella.". A con

pronunciation ot the unfamiliar' name,
and the passengers were affronted dally
by the conductor, who thrust his head
into one end of the car and shouted,
"You're a bar! You're a liar!" Imme
diately afterward the trainman would
stick his bead Into the other end of tbe
car and confirm this astonishing an
nouncement by yelling, You really arel
You really are!" Mr. Roosevelt Is nr.r

the country that everybody Is a liar, and
then confirming It to his own Vntlre satis
