Explaining Away Maine
Jaatla Dtsaatch K- Star.-
"How about Maine? What comment. have
you to make on the result!?" Speaker Clark was
asked. .
"We got hell licked out of us got beat good
' and plenty. There's nothing to say. It reminds
me of the country preacher who was called on
for prayer unaware!. He turned to the congrega
tion and said: 'Sing a sockdologer while I col
lect my thoughts.' I'm collecting my thought!."
. Vice President Marshall took a cheerful view
of the results.' "If any republican can get any
comfort out of such a small majority as they
got in Maine -yesterday, I aay welcome," he ssid.
"I expected the democrats to be beaten. I
aid so publicly two weeks ago. Anything under
fifteen thousand was favorable to the democrat!
and it was under 15,000. ' . ; -
"I did not go to Maine because I knew we
Couldn't win and I didn't want to see democratic

alsoeshowed'that many had not. Why, on the

"' Maine, the democrats would have to make up
140,000 votes iri Indiana to win. 4 And if I be
lieved it was any luch proposition ai that I
wouldn't be going back there to yell my lungs
cut. On the basis of the way the Maine vote
divided, we can wiu over the nation and we will
win." - ;-: ..: ...
Before Taking and After Taking.
Democrats feigning to be satisfied and pleased
with the result of the Maine election remind us
strikingly of the contrast picture! in the patent
medicine ads labelled "Before taking" and "After
taking," only with the sequence reversed. The New
York World, which is the most Valiant of all the
democratic newspaper championa of Preiident Wil
son and his adminiitration, on the day before the
voting, blazoned on its front page as vouched for
by most reliable and best known political corres
pondent, after a personal survey- of the political
battle field, this statement: '
The democats, supremely confident of the
re-election of their governor, Senator Johnson,
and two out of the four congressional candi
dates.have good reason to believe that Hughes
has helped their side of the government
On the. day after the voting, which showed
that Maine had elected a republican governor, two
republican United States senators and four re
publican members of congress, the World un
burdened itself of this language: '
' It was inevitable that Maine would go re
publican. What was in question was the size
of the majority, and the republican majority is
anything but decisive.
' To hearten the democrats the World would
have its readera now believe that the loss of a
governor, a United States senator and a congress
man, to say nothirfg of an additional senator and
congressman, whom they counted on winning, is
not discouraging, but encouraging. ,
, When a democrat pretendi to take comfort
out of Maine, pnt it down that he it limply
whistling to keep up hit courage. '
- Upheaval in "War Brides."
A general scramble to buy has lent prlcei of
Itocki in companies that have -to do with the
munitions trade shooting upward again, and thui
il the way opened for lome speculation ai to
what baiii exists for this movement It is cer
tain that the trade will not outlast the war; it is
almost equally certain that a new and lower level
of prices must be reached soon after the war.
Indeed, wise investors are agreed that the first
sign of approaching peace will be the signal for
a break. If this is true, the present movement
may be taken ,ai supporting the belief that the
war is not to end this year, and that the present
traffic in munitions will continue for mary months
to come. ' ," ' .. ,
The extent to which the tradb has riien ii
hardly understood, even by those who have
watched it closest, For the week ending Septem
ber 9, 1916, the exports from the port of New
York were $66,379,382. Of this $14,490,573 went
to France; $15,916,497 went to Russia, while the
United Kingdom ' took $19,030,737, and Italy's
share wai $3,107,323, a total of nearly $53,000,000
to theie four belligerents alone. Nearly seventeen
million dollar! of thii amount waS represented
by exploiivei; another million was for empty
shells, another for firearms, and another for picric
acid, which is used in manufacturing high ex
ploiivei. For the lingte week from the port of
New York almost twenty million dollars worth
of msterial for use on the battle line, while other
item! of service to the armies will foot up quite
as much more. . ; ' ; .'
''War brldei" are earning their keep in Amer
ica just now, and form a magnificent basis for the
"prosperity" of which tde democratic president
and his admirers boast with such enthusiasm.

Keeping It All In the Family. '
While the, democrats have spent over a billion
dollars in the last four years more1 than the re
publicans did in the preceding four years, they
must be given credit for doing their utmost to
keep it all in the family.. The rJccord of the ad
miniitration so far, has not only been charac
terised by an titter disregard of the civil service
raw, and the crea .ion of many thousands of new
positions to be rilled by "deserving democrats,"
but It ii notorioui for having placed on' the pay
roll more relatives of cabinet officers, congress
men and senators than ever .before were 10
recorded. The Cleveland dictum, "A public office
ii a public trust," haa been amended to read, "A
public office is a family graft," and the Jacksonian
doctrine as to spoils has been enthusiastically ap
plied along thii line. J. .
' This practice persistently pursued by the con
spicuous higher-ups has been carefully imitated all
down the line, until the pay roll is filled with soni
and daughters, brothers and sisters, even wives
assisting their husbands in. taking out the cash.
Some deserving democrats, perhaps, were takes
care of, but this must . have been because not
enough relatives to fill the places could be found.
The situation must be Inspiring to those faithful
follower! of the donkey, who actually believed
they were voting for a better form of govern
ment, only on find they were merely providing
meam for gratifying an inordinate appetite for
"pie" and "pork." i :
Nepotism was never so rampant as under the
present democratic adminiitration, whole per
formance! contrait strangely with its protesta
tions of high purposes.
Reforms for County Fairs. ,
A correspondent touches on an important point
In luggeiting that certain forma of amusement be
banished from county fain. The day hal long
passed in America when rural patrons of the fairs
are property described as bucotic. Entertainment
at these exhibitions is not designed to "amase the
gaping ruitics ranged around." Much progress
has been made in the way of doing away with
forms of amusement that were offensive to good
taste and good morals, but room for improvement
exists. The purpose of a county fair in its first
sense educational, and it ahould be made to con
form closely to thia ideal. Entertainment features
provided should be of such a character ai will
harmonize with the general idea of improvement
Device! designed merely to lure stray nickels from
idleri or the unwisely curious are unworthy of a
place where the high achievements of modern
agriculture are being shown for comparison. The
county fair will not realise .its real service until
its ii established on a plane with the industry it
chiefly represents. ; ' - . ,

A few years ago, when the Butgars were on
their backs and Greeks, Serbs and Turks stripped
them of the spoils of war, Roumania slipped over
the line and squatted on a choice chunk of north
ern Bulgaria. The operation developed a con
tinuous sore spot, which lent peculiar lest to
the recent victorious raid of the Bulgara into
Roumanian territory.- Reciprocity in land-grabbing
approaches a fine art abroad. ...
' Of course, good democrats' must chip in to
help re-elect Wilson and the use of the money to
finance the campaign to save the senator will
give them no right to complaint That's what
that "tow-line" is fo-- . . ' -
Yes, He Kept Us Out of War
Adaraaa of Censtrenna JuHua Caha.
It has often been asserted that President Wil
son has kept us out of war. I deny the assertion.
We had war with Mexico for the second time in
our history when we invaded iti territory at Vera
Cruz. We again had war with Mexico when we
invaded iti territory after the raid on Columbus,
N.'M. One might just as well say that Belgium
is not engaged in war. ha territory, too. was
invaded. Unlike the Mexicans, the Belgians
fought back. The Mexicans only made sporadic
attempt! to fight back. In these attempts they
killed and' wounded American soldiers. If the
Mexican people had been imbued with the spirit
of the Belgians, we would not have escaped so
easily. .'-.;.,' : .. A '..' ,'-... '
If anyone doubts that we made war on Mexico
when our marines snd sailors landed at Vera
Cruz, ask the mothers and fathers of the boys
in blue who were killed on the streets of that
Mexican seaport whether they believe we were at
war with Mexico.
Ask the boyi who were wounded on that occa
sion and for many weeks suffered intense pain
as they lay groaning upon their cots in impover
ished hospital! whether the president kept us out
of war. . -
- Ask the wivei and mothers and the sisters ot
the Mexicans who were killed at Vera Cruz
whether we were at war with Mexico.
Ask the wife of brave Captain Boyd, who was
killed at Carrizal, whether we were at war with
Mexico. . i, -
Ask the mother of brave Lieutenant Adair,
who wai also killed at Carrizal, whether we were
at war with Mexico.
Ask the relatives of the United States soldiers
who were treacherously stain at Carrizal whether
we were at war with Mexico.
Ask the relative! of the eighteen American
civiliana who were butchered at Santa Ysabel in
Mexico whether we were at war with Mexico.
Aik the mother! and the liiteri of those who
were slaughtered in the raid on Columbus, N. M.,
whether we were at war with Mexico.
Ask the citizens of Brownsville, Red House
Ferry and Progreso postoffice and Las Peladaa
whether, in the attacks of Carranzista adherents
and the looting, burning and killing of the peace
ful inhabitants of those places, the president has
kept us out of war.
Aik the women and children who were threat
ened with death at Tampico by an infuriated
Mexican mob whether the president has kept us
out of wtr. ' . i
' Ask the thousands of American citizens who.
were called upon to abandon their property in
Mexico and to return forthwith to the United
States whether the president has kept us out of
war.
And, finally, ask the wives and the children,
the dependent mothers and fathers and sisters of
the 150,000 National Guardsmen who have been
called from their usual peaceful avocations and
who will be encamped on the Mexican border for
the Lord knows how long whether the president
has kept ua out of war with Mexico.. .
' In 1912 the democratic platform proclaimed
thia high-sounding doctrine:
. "The constitutional rights of American citi
zens should protect them on our borders, and
50 with them throughout the world, and every
merican citizen residing or having property
in any foreign country ii entitled to and must
be given the full protection Of I the United
States government, both for himself and his
property."
In the campaign of 1912 the president was
very insistent in saying that
.. ."The democratic platform means what it
says. It is not molasses to catch Hies."
Surely tne way tnis pianx nas Deen executec
by the present administration ia proof poiitive
that not a word of it wai intended to be carried
into effect, but that it waa only "molasses to
cstrh flies. i
How the lives and property of American citi
zens have been safeguarded on the border I will
leave for Mr. Lansing, the secretary of state of
this administration, to describe. After several
yean of "watchful waiting" the lecretary of itate
lent a letter to the head of the de facto govern
ment in Mexico in which occurs this remarkable
language: ..!..,
' "The progreu of the revolution in Mexico:
.Continuous bloodshed and disorders have
marked its progress. For three years the Mexi
can republic hai been torn with civil strife; the
lives of Americans and other aliens have been
sacrificed; vast properties deyeloped by Ameri
can capital and enterprise have been destroyed
or rendered nonproductive; bandits have been
permitted to roam at will through the terri
tory contiguous to the United Statea and to
seize, without punishment or without effective
attempt at punishment, the property of Ameri
cans, while the lives of citizens of the United i
Statea, who ventured to remain in Mexican ter
ritory or to return there to protect their in
terests have been taken, and in aome cases bar
barously taken, and the murderers have neither
been apprehended nor brought to justice. It
would be difficult to find in the annals of the
history of Mexico conditions more deplorable
than those which have exiited , there during
these recent yean of civil war.
"It would be tedioui to recount instance
after instance, outrage after outrage, atrocity
after atrocity, to illustrate the true, naure and
extent of the widespread conditions of lawless
ness and violence which have prevailed. During
the last nine months in particular, the frontier
of the United States along the lower Rio
Grande has been thrown into a state of con
stant apprehension and turmoil because of fre
quent and sudden incursions into American
territory and depredations and murders on'
American soil by Mexican bandits who have
takei the lives and destroyed the property of
American citizens, sometimes carrying Ameri
can citizens across the international boundary
with, the booty seized. American garrisons
have been attacked at night, American soldiers
killed and their e.quipment and horses stolen;
America., ranches have been raided, property
stolen and i d itrovid, and American trains
wrecked .and plundered. The attacks on
Brownsville, Red House Ferry, Progreso. post
office an-i Lai Peladas, ill occuring during
September last, are typical. In these attacks
on American territory, Carranzista adherents,
and even Carranzista soldiers took part in the
looting, burning and killing. Not only were
these murders characterized by ruthless bru-"
tality, but uncivilized acts of mutilation were
.- perpetrated. '
"Representations were made to General Car
ranza, and he was emphatically requested to
stop these reprehensible acts in a section which
he has long claimed to be under the complete
domination of hil authority. Notwithstanding
these representations and the promise of Gen
eral Nafarrete to prevent attacks along the in
ternational boundary, in the following month
of October a passenger train was wrecked by
bandits and several persons killed seVen miles
north of Brownsville, snd an attack was made
upon United Statea troops at the same place
several ds11' ! Since .these attacks leaden
of the bandits well known both to Mexican civil
and military aunioruiea as well as to American
officer have been enjoying with impunity the
liberty of the towns of northern Mexico. So
far haa the indifference ol the de facto govern
ment to these atrocities gone that some of
these leaders have received not only the protec
tion of that government, but encouragement
and aid as well.
' "Depredations upon American penons. and
property within Mexican jurisdiction have been
still more numerous." , (.'
That is the indictment of the Wilson adminis
tration in Mexico by its own "secretary of State.
. .And yet our democratic colleagues have tl.e
effrontery "to tell the people bf'the United States
that President Wilson has kept us out of war.

"Yes, Jane, I do want to hear him.
They say he's a fine speaker."
"Cut, for pity's sake, Mike, If you
do come with me, keep awake! You
know you're always falling asleep

,, "I'll do my best Jane." '
Next day, when Father Burke be
gan to preach, Mike watched him for
five minutes and then dropped off to
sleep. When they were back home
Jane gave Mike a tcngue lashing.
"Well, Jane," said alike. In self-defense,
"If just this way. When I
engage a new hand I watch him to

find he's efficient and hard working I
don't bother about him any more.

I saw he was right on to his job, and

' TOO PROUD TO LOAF. r
We're camping on the Rio Grande
With nothing mucn to ao
But wash our shirts and dam our socks.
And darn the Insects, too.
We want the world to unde atand i
We're not too proud to fight, .
But draw the line at loafing here
With things that sting and bite.
The rattlers are s friendly lot .
And visit us by scores, .
Tarantulas prefer our tents
To sleeping out or aoore. I
We've learned the horned toad Is but
A ha mless little oaf,
We're not a bit too proud to fight
But how we hate to loafl
In napping In our ehoes and hats
The scorpion persists, .. .
And we did Sot enlist to be
Ahtmrh of naturalists.
We're not too proud to fight tho foe
No matter when he comes.
But are ashamed to wait around
And loaf and twirl our thumbs.
While we are valeting for mulea
And hulldlne feneea here.
Some other feliewo have tha Jobs .
We held for many s year. j
We're not too proud to fight in faot
But we're too busy Just to sit ''
And loaf our time away.
Ol thia la net s soldier's life, ,.

We're not too proud for Freedom's sake
To fight and bleed and die,

A Famous Physician's
Wonderful Discovery
Alter a series of careful experi
ments and tests at the Invalids' Hotel
and Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y.,
covering many years Dr. Pierce,
the medical director of that hospital,
made announcement that he could
prove that a medicine which he call
ed "ANURIC" was the best uric acid
solvent now to be had. As a remedy
for those easily recognized symptoms
of inflammation as scalding urine,
backache and frequent urination, at
well as sediment in the urine, or if
uric acid in .the blood has caused
rheumatism, lumbago, sciatica, gout,
it is simply wonderful, how quickly
"Anuric" acts; causing the pains and
stiffness rapidly to disappear.'
Swollen hands, ankles, feet are due to a
dropsical condition, often aaueed by die
ordered kidneys. Naturally when the kid
neys are deranged the blood is filled with
poisonous waste matter, which aettlea in
the feet, ankles and wrists; or under the
eyes in bag-like formations.
It fa Just as necessary to keep the kldneya
acting properly as to keep the bowels active.
Tha very beat poesible way to take care
of yourself k to take s glass of hot water
before meals and an "Annrle" tablet. In .
this way it la readily dissolved with the
food, picked up by the blood and finally
reaches the kidneys, where It haa a tonic
effect 'In rebuilding those organa. a
Step into the drug store and ask for s
RO-cent package of "Anuric" or eend Dr.
Pierce lOe for trial pkg "Anuric" many
timea more potent than Ilthia, eliminates
uric acid aa hot water melts sugar, A short
trial will eonvinee yon. Advertisement-
