with the <4 A.‘It, tha public will nat-
urally subnet (that this now organi-

with a view to commanding sufficient
Influence In the politico! world to en-
able Its members to raid- the public
treasury at will and to dictate a few
government appointments. The rank
and flic of the G. A. H. membership
are men who went Into the organiza-

radeship and to keep green the mem-
ory of those heroes who fell fighting
for the preservation of the Union.
Hue designing politicians and office
seekers were not slow to discover
that this association of veteran*, or*
ganlzed solely to enable old soldiers
and comrades to keep In touch with
each other, could be made a powerful
political machine, and these offlc.e
hunters promptly pushed themselves
forward as champions of the O, A. R.
ami made the assooltftlon the toast
of every political gathering, state and
national. As a consequence some of
the most bare-faced Bteals ever perpe-
trated on a people were made in the
shape of pension raids on the nation-
al treasury, Officials did not dure op-
pose those steals, as they were threat-
ened with the solid vote of the O. A.
R. But as'thc years passed and the
honest, patriotic clement, which Is
largely In the majority, In the O.

were rebuked; but still the pension
frauds went on and now, nearly forty
years after the war. our people are

were known, politicians who want a

they are good things and Inspire the

of their fathers. But for heaven's
sake let's not Inspire them with a de-

A Disgraceful Incident.
That assault on a Jewish funeral
procession In New York Wednesday
was a disgrace to that City and a dis-
credit to American civilization. It
was the funeral of the late Rabbi Ja
coh Joseph, head of the OrtWMox He-
brews In the United State*, and that
the sons and daughters pf Israel
loved their dead spiritual Sead&r was
evidenced by the fact that nearly all
of the Jewish store* and other places
of business were closed and thous-
ands of the faith were following the
rabbi's remains to tjielr last resting
place. The employe# of the printing
press factory of R. Hod 4 Co.. wRh-
out provocation, turned the hose on ,,
the mourners, and threw buckets of r,
water and wet clothing Into tbelr
It was only natural that the Jew*
should retaliate hnd because they did
they were unmercifully clubbed and
beaten by the police. What the po-
lice should have done waa to have
arrested every person found In the
Hoe 4 Co. factory and landed them'
in jail. Such a disgraceful affair
could not have occurred in any other
city outside of New York. Mr. Hoe
admits that his employes have been
In the habit of taunting and jeering
at Hebrews who passed the factory.
Why these taunts and jeers? We
have never heard anything, except
his religion, urged against the Jew
and In this country he has as much
right to his religious beliefs as
Protestants have to theirs. HI# re-
ligion I* much older than our own,
and besides in this age of enlighten-
ment religious creeds are not con-
sidered In estimating the social and
moral worth of a man.
The members of that funeral pro-
cession should now be allowed the
privilege of clubbing the police and
drowning the water throwers.
Is to-politically array the poor against
the rich, and with that object to con-
trol Hie democratic party.” Mr. Bry-

-day that be did not - preach in 1896,
and in that respect he differs from
evsry other prominent man In the
country. He has remained firm to bis
convictions of six years ago. Incon-
sistency can not be charged against
W. J. Bryan.
Titles Bestowed on Writers.
The Pittsburg Times thinks the re-
cent coronation honors published In
England -tow that the literary craft
and the yer folk have succeeded
In really breaking into tha ranks of
the aristocracy. There was nothing
out of the way In Tennyson, lu-lng
pool laureate, getting a title, hut
when, several years ago, Walter Be
sunt was made a “alf,” the affair
caused a good deal of comment. Then
Henry Irving was raised to knight-
hood. and at the last distribution Gil-
bert Parker and A. Conan Doyle also
received tlfles, along with Charles
Wyndham, perhaps the best “David
Garrick" who ever appeared In that
well known play, it bad been usual,
ycaf* before, to give titles to com*
posers, but novelists and actors were
considered beyond the pale.
In the olden days actors were vaga-
bonds, but amateur playwrights were
often men of title. They wrote those
dramaitic compositions*' which were
known as umsques. These efforts
were usually acted by Individuals In
tt>6 Dame circle of society In which
moved the writer of the masque. But
now the ruler of the most powerful
monarchy in the world haa shown
that he recognizes that writers and
actors merit titles, us well as brewers
thud tea AitiCchants,' aad It- is Itkelk
that the fashion will be followed In
other countries. In the United States
the writers and players had long been
accorded recognition because the
great ones made money—the only cri-
terion of success In this country.
Is It More Expressive?
The phrase “government by in-
junction" has been more expressively
put by the Indianapolis Sentinel,
which paper calls It. “suppression by
injunction." The Sentinel says:
‘The decision of Judge Jac kson of
the West Virginia district court is a
judicial enactment for the United
States of the Filipino sedition law,
Its application should deceive nobody.
You may not be In sympathy with
the striking coni miners, but the fact
remains that the same principle can
be extended to others It It can be ex-
tended to them. These people are
punished for talking. And not be-
cause there is any law against talk-
ing, but because a Judge had ordered
them not to talk. There Is no law
against talking, because the consti-
tution of the United States prohibits
any. That was one, power which the
people refused to confer on the na-
tional government. Before the con-
stitution could be ratified there had
to be a virtual agreement on the bill
of rights amendments, and the first
of these Is as follows:
' ‘Congress shall make no law re-
specting un establishment of religion,
or prohibiting the free exorcise there-
of; or abridging the freedom of
speech, or of the press; or the right
of the people peaceably to assemble
and to petition the government for a
redress of grievances.'
'What congress can not do by law
the judge proposes to do without law.
The mluers can not hold it meeting
to discuss their affairs under this rul-
ing. But that is not all. Nobody can
hold a meeting for any purpose If a
federal Judge sees fit to prohibit It.
It Is not tbe object of the meeting
that makes It unlawful, but tbe fact
that the judge has Issued an Injunc-
tion against It. There Is only one
way to meet such an usurpation of
power. Judge Jackson ought to lie
impeached. If this Is not done other
judges may take bis action as a prec-
edent and carry the principle of arbi-
trary rule still further. Either a curb
must be put on the aggressions of the
federal courts or the constitution may
as well lie sold for waste paper."
A traveler who has evidently been
weal complains; “Car windows ought

him out of mischief. In the winter

monia; In the summer be fills his eyes

dust and dirt. The curse of the Amer-
ican passenger coach Is Its miserable

shut at all times. Ventilation ought
to be provided from above nnd per
mitted to be regulated only by the
trainmen. Just as the heat of the car
Is regulated In winter time.

horse slid has already broken, and away'

looks nt them Ull she finds one that
suits her fancy; then she lassoes It un-
erringly, briugs It to tlie ground and
breaks It in like a rough rider In tho
wild west show. It snorts Insanely,
Struggles nnd bucks frantically; but It
bucks against fate, for tbe young lady
Is Its master. When It was a wild

In addition to their other accomplish-

ire has here also been eliminated, and
tho woman Is all the better for it. She
will love her children Just as devoted-
ly when she has them and will be all
tho better able to take care of them.

plow. What to more, when the young
lady student has Cane her stint at
plowing or harrowing she must unhar-
