of the greatest political events of this

There was a test vote taken in the

which will be found recorded on page
1,502 of the Congressional Record of
the present session of congress on the
question of repealing the application of
the eight hour law to alien labor em

against the extension of the hours of

The southern states are the strong

brought forward no candidates for the

'equal rights to nil aud special privi

from the state that has heretofore al

which has hitherto been content to fol

blood will at

Bladder troubles almost always result
from a derangement of the kidneys and
a cure is obtained ouickest by a proper
treatment of the kidneys. If you are feel

taking Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the
great kidney, liver and bladder remedy.
It corrects inability to hold urine and
scalding pain in passing it, and over
comes that unpleasant necessity of being

night. The mild and the extraordinary
effect of Swamp-Root is soon realized.

Dear Mr. Editor: I notice, in
your last issue, an interesting ar
ticle on the above subject, indicating
that such is the case, beyond a doubt
it is true and the cause of it is not
hard to locate.
We find the' conditions of polite
ness, just as portrayed in Prof.
Craven's article, in cities, towns
and schools and to great extent
throughout the country. Hence,
no wonder the Journal that pub
lished the article be styled a re
freshing exception to the general
It may seem strange on first
thought why the poverty-stricken
poor, and the old time negroes, are
the most genteel and polite of our
day and race; why they really love
each other most, and haye a nobler
opinion than those in higher life have
even of their own class members.
The thing ia selfishness pare, un
adulterated selfishness, that should
be condemned on all occasions
in the pulpit, school room, around
the fireside, on the streets, in busi
ness affairs and at every turn of life.
Then pure and nobis politeness will
flourish like a beautiful tree planted
in rich soil beside many waters.
The ladies in poor little down
trodden Cuba, and even before they
were free, felt slighted by our boI
diers, when passed without recogni
tion. "Como esta, bonita senorita,"
meaning, "How-do-you-do, beautiful
young lady," would always bring
Wk expressions of gratitude and
th&nki from their hearts. I
All the South has to pay for its
bustling business, must never rob it
of its already scanty gentility.
It is the contaminating influence
of greed that makes us selfish, so
let us get out, clean up the trash
and live more polite.

80 here Is a concrete case where the
Republican leaders refused to allow
the representatives of organized labor
to even be heard in their own behalf
on one of the most Important questions
that labor Is Interested In. To memo
rialize a Republican congress or presi
dent Is only time, thrown away by the
labor people. For at least ten years
organized labor has been begging the
dominant party to pass an antl-lnjunc-tion
bill and other legislation, bnt a
deaf ear has been turned to their re
quest, although Just before an election
the bouse once or twice passed a bill,
knowing It would be allowed to lapse
In the senate.
With this record of tbe Republicans
it Is no wonder tbat tbe labor leaders
have at last decided upon more stren
uous action that will produce results.

That bridge trust in Ohio that the
Republicans have fostered has all the
characteristics of tbe worst features
of the sugar trust, the beef combine or
any of the other octopl that the Re
publican party has made possible by
tariff and other protective legislation.
Tbe attorney general of Ohio declared
before the Judiciary committee of the
legislature tbat "I never knew of a
conspiracy so Infamous, so thoroughly
steeped In crime, as tbe bridge trust"
With the president scurrying around
after cabinet material and Secretary
Taft appealing for help to make np
his mind, the senate, all mixed np on
railroad rate regulation and the Re
publican members of the bouse trying
to show tbe dear people bow they love
them, Washington Is having all the po
litical excitement It cares for.
Jndge Tarker in his late speeches did
not say, "I told you so," but he again
expressed the opinion that the Repub

which even President Roosevelt will
now hardly deny In view of recent exposures.

"When such conditions confront you
why should you hesitate any longer?
Ton have borne the beat and burden of
the day. Your statesmen have demon
strated their ability not only to take
care of the Interests of their states and
their section, but they have been the
only dam against aggression at home
and the threat of discredit abroad.
Among them are men with the knowl
edge, experience, honesty and courage
to represent their fellow partisans
without the surrender of principle and
their fellow countrymen with safety
and honor. 1
"The time has come when the really,
effective Democrats of tbe country
should be recognized and when they
themselves should no longer hesitate,
decline or refuse to seek or to accept
those honors which are their Just due
for work well done. I believe firmly
tbat It will do better, because It will at
once eliminate the factions which7 are
Inevitable so long as their leaders feel
tbat they have only to capture a few
state organizations In the north, nomi
nate their candidate and then depend
upon the south to support and elect
him. If possible.
"But If this course would give
southern Democrats the recognition
they deserve It will also put them upon
their mettle. It will make It necessary
for them to Insist upon devotion ' to
Ideas and principles, to avoid, as their
character and traditions assure, ex
treme policies, to keep themselves thor
oughly In touch with all the elements
to be found In a national and progress
ive party and to be ready and willing
to anticipate and promote all tbe needs
of a great country. .
"If we ore honest with ourselves,
earnest and vigilant in the recognition
of those popular needs which are both
safe and Democratic and regardful of
our own Ideas and traditions, we shall
again be Intrusted with power, and we
shall be ready for it When this time
