A Bail Bond Graft.
Tho rolooso on bond pending ap
peal In tho fedoral court of the bus
iness agent of tho structural iron
workers in Omaha Implicated In the
big dynamite conspiracy, dlsclosos a
scandalous condition that ought to
be romedlcd. It transpires that the
prisoner's bond Is furnished by a
Texas surety company in considera
tion of the payment of J400 raised
by his friends, who In addition
thoroto wero compelled to deposit
cash, or caBh Items, equal to the full
amount of the bond. In other
words, tho sutety company gobbles
$400 for tho uso of Its namo with
out running any risk, or subjecting
Itself to any liability whatover.
As oxplalned by those who know,
this graft Is possible only becauso
the rules of the court do not permit
a cash bond to be given, Uiub forc

Promoting Country Life.
Governor Eborhart of Minnesota
relates In World's Work how he la
trying to "keep Minnesota farmers
on thetr farms by making tho coun
try school houses confers for social
recreation, for amusement and for
practical instruction In agrlculturo
and household economics." It is a
worthy purposo to which any state
exocuttvo might wish to dedicate the
Influence of his great office and a
purposo that has been in tho public
mind for some tlmo. It is genorally
ndmlted that promotion of country
life must begin In and revolve
around tho school as the center of
social activity, and that groator so
cial attraction must bo created to
hold the farmers and their families,
especially the young folk, on tho
farm. It is definitely appreciated
that our problem Is not moroly
"back to tho farm" for tho city
man, but "stay on tho farm", for the,
farmer. That is why Missouri,
Minnesota and other statos aro far
sightedly endeavoring to 'Improve
conditions nnd stlmulato content
ment among their farming popula
tion. 11 ut ono thing , in this connection
must be ombaslzed, and that is tho,
need of revising tho charactor of
education in country schools, as
Governor Eborhart's plan contem
plates. Tho Boo has frequently
referred to tho Importance of adapt
ing rural education to rural inter
ests, of training tho minds of the
boys and girls from tho farm toward
tho farm, to Inculcato In. thorn Ideals
of farm llfo moro than city llfo. To
do this effectually requires teachers
of higher averago ability and oxperi-encotha-n

James Bryce, the Man.
It Is generally agreed that Great
Britain never sent as its ambassador
to the United States a man of larger
caliber or more admirable attain
ments than James Bryce, to whom
wo aro reluctantly saying farowoll.
Statesman, diplomat, scholar, trav
eler, author, Mr. Bryco brought to
the office an Impress of distinction
no mere- title or official act could
give. Ho was too large for a title,
so ho accepted tho appointment upon
tho condition of his remaining sim
ply Mr. James Bryce. Endeared to
Americans by his long nnd Intlmnte
knowledge of them and their Insti
tutions, upon which he Is an author
ity, his rejection of a profferod lord
ship ns his official habllament natu
rally deepened our senso of admira
tion for tho man.
England's selection of Mr. Bryco
as its representative in America was
the most fortunato that could have
boon made at that time, and while
his distinguished successor comes
with gracious welcome, Mr, Bryco's
going con but occasion regret. It
seems ho really was ono of us, be
longed horo and ought to remain.
Tho tributes leading Americans havo
paid him upon his departure bespeak
a national sentiment, and sense of
appreciation, In which there is none
or tno clatter or perfunctory cer
Firemen's Wages and Freight Rates.
It is gratifying and quieting to
know that the railroads and their
firemen have reached an amlcablo
agreement under the Erdman arbi
tration act, averting a strike. Now
comes tho rumor of an Intention of
the railroads to urgo their demand
for lncroasod freight rates largely
on tho basis of this settlement, in
volving additional wage expenses.
Accoidlng to the reports tho wages
of the flremon under tho terms of
this agreement will be raised in the
aggrogato from 12,000,000 to $3,-
480,000. Assuming tho latter, with
fifty-four railroads involved, It
means, that oach on an averago
would hnve to add less than C5,000
to Its annual payroll.
Of courso, railroads in common
with all other interests, individual
ns well as corporate, aro compelled
to moot the exactions of a rising
scale of prlcos, for equipment as well
as labor, bu If they are entitled at
hub time t,o- nigner freignt rates, it
must be for other reasons than that
of tho advances to the firemen. That
might enter Into consideration, .but
only as a. partial, olemont. There
may be almost constant need for re
adjustment tf 'freight rates, hut tho
need of a general flat Increase is by
no means proved.
Lynchinga and Causes.
Dr. Bookor T. Washington shows
in a recent' lotter to tfio Louisville
Courier-Journal that of the thirteen
lyhchlngs of negroes In the south
slnco Jnnuary 1, not one waB In con-
Boquonco of assault upon a white
woman. Dr. Washington has for
years maintained that crlmo was not
tho primal cause of so many lynch
ings' .and ho has certainly offered
some convincing proof here, which
should go far toward removing tho
last fatuous argument in defonso
of thlB species of; outlawry.
Sovernl of thoso thirteen lynch-
Ings wore for murder, or alleged
murder; (In at least one case the
wrong man -was executed) somo
were for stealing, somo for attacking
white men and ono or two for un
known causes. Tho Courlor-Journal
no doubt Is correct in saying that
lynching has come to bo moro a mat
ter of frolic than vengeanco, though
It must be put down as a deplorablo
kind of frolic. Thoso facts ought tq
sorvo to arouse a moro Intense fool
ing on thlB subject. Many well-In
tended and ordinarily lawabldlng
peoplo have beon disposed to condono
the crime of lynching an the speed
iest form of justice, even though not
in. conformity with law, simply be
cause It .has always been rogardod
as. the natural effect of a certain
c'auso. Even If that traditional here
tical belief were entltlod to a sem
blance of justification, then in the
light of the showing made by Dr.
Washington it loses that title nnd
should in' common honesty and jus
tice bo renounced.

The Publicity Cure.
In Boason and out of season The
Beo has preached publicity as tho
best euro for evils and nbuses beset
ting the poople. Imposture, fraud
and devious ways, whether In the
political, industrial, social or re
ligious field, cannot long withstand
tho searchlight of publicity focused
upon them. The tremendous progress
mado In recent years toward the en
forcement of a higher code of morals
in all our vnrlotis activities is due
moro to the potent influence of pub
licity blighting noxious growths, and
stimulating wholesome develop
ments, than to all tho laws that have
been enacted for that purpose.
It is gratifying, therefore, to find
President Wilson laying special
stress upon tho bcneflcenco of pub
licity as a curativo agency. In his
latest chapter on "Tho New Free
dom," contributed to the current
World's Work, ho says:
Publicity Is one of the purifying elc
meiitn of politics. The best thing you can
do with anything that Is crooked Is to lift
It up where peoplo can sec that it is

body, insists on doing business In the

and energetic press the best laid plan

succeeds. While tho searchlight
may hit some objocts that might as

accomplished by it is Incalculable

Mil. MORGAN'S nEI.IOIOJf.
Orthodox Strain nuns from Grand
father to Grandson.
Some persons will contrast the profes
sion of faith with which John Pierpont
Morgan opens his will with some of the
familiar hymns of his grandfather, whose
name he has borne, long a minister of
the HoIIIb Street church. Other observ
ers will see In the two the same religious
strain, manifesting Itself In one case
through the poetic mind and In the other
through that of a man of large affairs.
Listen to these words of the elder:
O, Thou to whom In ancient time
The lyre of Hebrew bards was strung,
Whom kings adored in songs sublime.
And prophets traised with glowing
Not now on Zlon's height alone.
Thy favored worsnlper may dwell;
Nor where, at sultry noon, thy Son
Sat weary, by the patriarch's well.
From every place below the skies,
A grateful eong. a fervent ptayer;
The Incense of the heart may rise
To heaven and find acceptance there.
O. Thou to whom In ancient time
The lyre of prophet-bards was strung
To Thee, at last. In every clime
Bhall temples rise ana praise do uns.
The grandson writes:
"I commit my soul into the hands of
my Saviour. In full confidence that, hav
ing redeemed It and washed It In His most
precious blood, He will present It fault
leas before my Heavenly Fither; and 1
entreat my children to maintain and de
fend, at all hazard, and at any coat of
personal sacrifice, the blessed doctrine of
the complete atonement for sin through
the blood of Jesus Christ once offered
and through that alone."
John Pierpont was a radical temper
ance man. Hla views gave offense to
some of his Boston parishioners, and
eventually led to his withdrawal from the
Hollla Street pulpit. He was also an In
tense abolitionist, taking the nomination
of the free soil party here for governor
In one year and for congress In another,
Although 76 years old at the outbreak of
the war, he insisted on going to the front
as the chaplain of a Massachusetts regi
ment But In theology he would not
have agreed with his distinguished grand
aon. Seldom has the doctrine of the
"blood atonement" been asserted with
more emphaala than in the last will and
testament of America's greatest financier,

CRY OF THE DEEAMEE.
John Boyle O'Reilly.
I am tired of planning and tollln
In the crowded hives of men;
Heartweary of building and spoiling,
And spoiling and building again.
And I long for the dear old river,
Whero I dreamed my youth away,
For a dreamer lives forever.
And a toller dies in a day.
I am sick of the Rhowy seeming,
Of a life that Is half a lie:
Of the faces lined with scheming,
In the throng that hurries by,
From the sleepless thoughts of endeavor,
I would go where the children play;
For a dreamer lives forever.
And a thinker dies in a day.
I can feel no prldo but pity,
For the burdens the rich endure;
There is nothing i.-eet in tho city
But the pnticnt lives of tho poor,
Oh, tho little hands too skillful.
And the child mind choked with weedsl
Tho daughter's heart grown willful.
And the father's heart that bleeds I
No, nol from the street's rude bustle,
From trophies of mart and .stage,
I would fly to the wood's low rustle
And the meadow's kindly page.
Let me dream ns of yore by the river,
And be loved for the dream alwayi
For a dreumer lives forever.
And a thinker dies in a day.
