During a presidential campaign,
Washington ia about as lively politi-
cally as a last years bird's n«at. Since
no votes are to be gleaned in the Dis-
trict, both parties let the capitol strict
ly alone, and its residents have to scan
the out-loud papers ft|- guidance in
farming their political opinions. At
the.preaant moment, Washingtonians
are Jnaquandry. It appears from pub
lie print, that Mr. Roosevelt's first
address made a mockery out of Mr.
Hoovers pretentions, and also that Mr.
Roosevelts suggestions are abhorent
to all sensible persons; that worse
could .be said of Mr. Hoover, and that
Mr. Roosevelt has never done any
thing himself; that the speech is the
work of a poorly informed phrase
maker, and that it is likewise a vig-
orous criticism of a decent rule. In-
deed, until both parties cut loo8e, j ation ^ some degree from the shoul-
Washington did not know that either jders ot the common P«>P,e- There wU1

Although it is unbecoming to speak' Respectfully yours,
of one's own abilities, perhaps the Dis- ]
trict of Columbia is better fitted than
any other territory in the land to pass
with even handed justice upon the
merits of the prominent. Through its
streets the great men come and go,
busy in the conscientious discharge of
their duties. When examined in the
"light of first hand scrutiny, they ap-
peal- to have neither halo nor horns.
The writer recalls a deceased candi-
date for presidential nomination, not
of his own party, as a pleasant neigh-
bor, incapable of perpetrating upon
the-country at large, through ignor-
ance, prejudice or malice, a wrong
which he would scorn to do to the city
bloclc "in which, he lived. It is too bad
that each voter cannot peer in a simi-
lar way, right into the life of every
uian who solicits Ms ballot. As a sub-
stitute for such an advantage, let it
be recalled that the poet said there

bills of the session are practically
disposed of, and the opinion of some
is that the Legislature will be in ses-
sion the full 30 days allowed by law.
Even if the session should last a
month, however, the complexity of the
question and the certainty of stren-
uous opposition to further truck tax-
ation of regulation at this time makes
it highly improbable that any bills
on this subject will be introduced.

y Industrial News Review
The public Ls always tin; loser when
competition is unfair.
This modern industrial axiom is es-
pecially applicable in the case of the
railroads. Eighty-fivi; per cent of the
nation's freight is carried by thern-
and no other agency could carry it as
cheaply and as efficiently. Yet in-
ecjualitably regulated land and water
competition ha; forced railroad re-
trenchment. resulting in passing of
dividends by many lines, and contrib-
uting further to unemployment.
In the single state of New Jersey
there are 16,000 fewer residents in
railroad employ than there were four
years ago, and railroad payrolls to res
idents of the state have been reduced
$27,000,000 annually. It ritust be re-
membered that the eatings of rail-
roads cannot be compared to those of
other businesses, inasmuch as during
years of prosperity stringent regula-
tion prevents them from making even
as much as 0 per cent on their invest-
We are all interested in the rail-
roads, whether we know it. or not.
They occupy a position of the first
importance in the industrial scheme
and their prosperity is directv related
to the prosperity, or lack of it, of
banks, insurance companies and a mul
titu.de of manufacturing and produc-
ing industries. What happens to the
railroads will, directly or indirectly,
affect us all.
NOT SO CHANCED
"Has Meyer changed much in UK-
years he has been away?"
"No. but be thinks he has."
"Why. he is always talking about
what a fool he used to be!"
A good thing to remember,
And a simple thing to do-
Is to work with the construction gang
And not the wrecking crew!
Because of the extensive use of the
Court House as a play-house, we do
not want any more visitors at band
' to past occasions there has been i
much disturbance that County Offi-
cials have ask us to discontinue the
use of the Court House. Unless
conditions are corrected we will Ml
have a place to meet. We urge that
everyone try to cooperate with US ia

Beer neve r built a cottage. It
never stuffed a hungry little stomach
never inspired a kiss of purity.
It never planted a garden or sent a
happy little girl to swing upon the
gate in anticipation of a father's re-
turn. It never made a contented
hearthstone or bred a yeomanry to
inspire their country with sturdy pride
It deals in mortgages and evict-
merits. It wrenches bread from the
fingers of childhood. It triumphs in
blows and hate, in suspicion and fear,
in lust and disease. It tramples Upon

ness, hopelessness, decay smite the
