William P. Jackson, tho newly ap
pointed senator from Maryland to
occupy the seat vacated by the lato
Sonator Rayner until the legislature
elects his successor In January, Is
said to ho a .millionaire. He is less
than 45 years of age. "Another
millionaire in tho senate," exclaims
a newspaper, following Its derision
with the aUtoment that "Mr. Jack-
i son always has been noted for his
great industry A a boy ho spent
his school, vacations working hard
at Industrial labor." He seems to
havo capitalized his Industry into
very rich material rewards.
If this Is all that stands against
the youug sonator from Maryland,
then It is tlmo for congratulations to
the state and tho senate, Instead of
belittling criticism. It would bo n
good thing for tho youth of this re
public to omphaslzo the qualities in
Bonator Jackson that seem to havo
triumphed. Hang such a promlso be
fore tho eyes of ovory boy and It
ought to Inspire him, too, to Industry
and thrift, nut It Is apt to put a
sordid phase on tho worth of such
efforts and succobs to make too
much of tho point that because this
young mnn happens to havo con
wertod his push and enterprise. Into
millions he is an undesirable man to

An act of Omaha Presbytery In April,
190S, consolidated tho Second rresbytcrtan
and Knox Presbyterian churches. Sach
of these churches had brn In existence
about twenty-five years. Kach had been
a strong and Influential bodv of about
ZOO Christian people of the Presbyterian
faith. When consolidated the Joint mem
bership was between SW) anil -MX.
The Second r.huteh had counted among
Its strongest pastors Dr. H. M. Steven-son,-i?r.
Samuel Ware and Iter. Newman

gtown particularly under the pastorates
of Dr. Asa ljlrd and Dr. M. D. Ixng.
Kach church hud a strong session, con
sisting ot nine men In the Second nnd
"ven men In the Knox church.
Soon after the actual fusion of the two
congregations on July S, J&w, the new
congregation called Iter. M. V. Hlgbce,
who had been for three an a half years
pastor of the Knox Presbyterian church,
to the pastorate of tho consolidated body
which waa named tho North church. I
waa Installed two weoka later and con
tinued to bo the pastor of the church.
The new conregatlon worshiped for
two years In thevold Knox church build
ing at Nineteenth and Ohio streets and
then began vigorously to work for a
new building, which waa dedicated Feb-
ruary 4, J9lt. Tho new building is mod-
ern and commodious and an ornament to

FRANKING- CAMPAIGN MATERIAL
Ions of Political Dope Circulated at Nation's Expense.
It has buen suggested that the people's
national, state and local governments
might with propriety help to finance from
the publlo funds the campaigns jof candi
dates for public office, in Oregon, to cite
one example, the authorities circulate at
publlo expense a campaign pamphlet In
which every candidate Is allowed a cer
tain amount of apace to present to the
voters the arguments for his election.
This plan has much to commend it, since
each candidate has an equal chance with
every other candidate to place before tha
voters his claims to their favor.
The United States government has a
system ot aiding some candidates for
office while giving; no aid to the oppos
ing candidates. The system Is there open
to etrlous objection because ot its rank
favoritism. A member ot congress who
s a candidate for re-election can have
his political documents printed In tho

To fix your touring cart .
He stands upon the curb and tells
Tou what a chump you are.
But when his lawmnowi-r starts t
He knows Just where to drop
The oil to make It run again,
And Honda it to the shop.
I know a man who tells you how
You should Invest your dough;
How you should place j'our bankroll s
That It will thrlvo afnf grow.
But still UUs frenzied financier
Has nover got a cent;
Ills wife takes In plain sewing; so
That they can pay the rent.
Whenever I encounter ode
Who blows and blows and blows,
I have my opinion on
How much he really knows.

Who's certain to mako good.
