Take Your Choice.
Although tho democratic tariff bill
has gono only through ono house, a
controversy Is already threatened as
to who should have tho credit for It.
Hero Is part of a eulogy pronouncod
by our amlablo democratic contempo
rary, the World-Herald:
The passage of the democratic tariff
bill through the house, practically with
out change as drafted by tho commllteo
on ways and menns, constitutes a re
markablo trlbuto to the leadership of
Chairman Underwood. About tho only
concesslonn Mr. Underwood made were
those mado In the beginning to President
In contrast with this, read this
paeon In another democratic organ,
none other than Mr. Bryan's Com
moner: All praise to President Wilson for tho
stand he has taken, and to 8peakcr Clnrk
and Chairman tTndcrwnod for tho hearty
co-operation they have given him.
Head ono version and you will havo
tho Impression that Mr. Underwood
waB tho whole thing, merely throwing
a crumb or two to tho president to
keep him satisfied; read tho other
version, and you will bo sure Presi
dent Wilson did It all, graciously per
mitting Speaker Clark and Chairman
Underwood to push along behind.
"You pays your money, nnd you
takes your choice."
Wilson and the Colored Man.
Says tho Washington correspond
ent of tho Atlanta Constitution:
President Wilson today replaced throo
moro negro federal officeholders with
white men. thus answering the query an
to whether ho would let his Virginia bloo.l
or New Jersey training guldo him In ap
pointments to federal office.
It Is nn old Baying that "blood Is
thicker than water," and evidently
tho rule applies oven to presidents.
Many negroes In public office aro
rapidly discovering to their sorrow
what supplanting a republican pres
ident with a domocratlc president
moans. Whether all tho colored men
aro to bo turned out of office is not
certain, but a good many aro being
displaced. Ono of tho last throo to
go is William H. Lewis, an assistant
attorney goneral, whoso reten
tion Mr. Wlckorshanv is said to havo
urged strongly on tho ground sim
ply of etftclenoy,
Tho democratic party, of courso,
has never done anything for tho
negro In politics and naturally, as
history fully explains, tho negro as
a rule, supports tho republican
party, but novertheloss thoro Is
moro thaa mero party politics In
this mattor. While wo aro preaching
civil service and tho merit system
In offlco-holdlng It ought to -bo
maintained without a color lino. Tho
capable efficient black, office-holder
is entitled to tho samo consideration
as tho capable efficient whlto office
holder, yet apparently nepd not ex
pect It at tho hands of a democratic
Mr. Morgan's Offer.
In publicly disclosing tho offer of
Mr. Morgan to place his colossal re
sources at the command of President
Wilson In ovent tho government
neodod help, ' Colonel Hnrvey adds
that the lato master of flnanco re
garded tho policies ndvancod by Mr.
Wilson with honest npprohenslon,
"but nover considered tho domo
cratlc party fully capable of govern
ing tho nation."
But for tho solemn nnture of tho
caso and the doslro not to show dlB
respoct to Mr. Morgan's groat spirit
of patriotism, ono might bo Btruck
by tho humor of a certain aubtle
suggestion in his cstlmutlon ot the
democracy, What could ho expect
from four years af domocratlc rule
that he should offer In ndvanco to
throw Into tho breach tho influence
of his llmltloss resources?

would appreciate too keenly the fact
that threats aro not calculated to

adopted by tho pioneers, tho Amerl-

MAY BUILDING HER HOUSE.
Richard Le Galllenne.
May is building her house. With apple,
She Is roofing over the glimmering,
Ot the oak and the beeoh hath sho
budded Its beams.
And, spinning all day at her secret
With arras of leaves each wind-swayed;
She plctureth over, and pcopleth It all
With echoes and dreams,
Jtni singing of streams.
May Is building her house. Of petal and
Of- the roots or the oak Is tho flooring
With a carpet of mosses and lichen andi
Each small miracle over and over.
And tender, traveling green things
Her windows, the morning and evening;
And her rustling doorways, ever ajar
With the, coming and going
Of fair things blowing1.
The thresholds of the four winds are.
May Is building her house. From'tha
dust of thing's
She Is making the songs and the flowers
and the wings;
From October's tossed and trodden gold;
She is making the young year out ofi
Yea, out of winters flylns sleet
She Is making all tho summer sweet.
And the brown leaves spumed of No
She Is changing back again to spring's.
