A MISUSED WORD.
What is populism anyway? A
few weeks ago a New York paper
denounced Governor Hughes' direct
nomination bill as "a flower of the
populisUc fancy." Speaker Cannon,
aurii the attempt to revise the
House rules referred scathingly to
that movment as populistlc. A
Southern Democrat, the other day,
bitterly assailed William Jennings
Bryan as a populist for his belief in
Government ownership of railways.
Do these uses of the word show pre
cisely what populism is? Not at
Populism, whatever it is, or is
not, has been abroad in the land
for a long time. Railroad rate reg
ulation was populistlc, insurance
legislation was populistlc, and the
Income tax law was a very bad case
of It indeed.
Whenever, in the name of profits,
three or four gentlemen with bank
accounts like lllrlfrlllln linllnnna nn,l
faces like asphalt pavements gather
together over frugal eighty-seven
dollar dinners to protect against
popular legislation, the word popu
lism has a very busy evening.
We think wo have the secret at
last. Populism is not a political be
lief, nor a religion, nor a disease,
nor a breakfast food. It is an
In tho progress of the country to
ward a broader and deeper democ
racy, men will propose laws for
direct nominations, for initiative and
referendum, for recall, for control
and ownership of public utilities.
If these proposals Interfere with
your happiness or your plans, and
argument is distasteful to your re
fined nature, you need not despair.
You can call these schemes populis
tlc. There is always a chance that
somewhere with some doddering,
simple soul, that will pass as argument.
The Supreme Court having, It is
announced, declared the two-cent a
mile bill unconstitutional, is is
qute certain that the railroads af
fected will return to the old-time
tariff. That is hard for the traveler
but it makes the railroad people

WAR ON THE CIGARETTE
The legislature of the state of I
Washington has just passed an act
making It a misdemeanor for any
person to smoke, have in his posses
sion or offer for sale cigarettes in
the state. The act provides for the
arrest of any person who uses cigar
ettes and the police authorities are
Instructed to enforce the law .on all
persons within the confines of the
state, whether they be citizens or
visitors. This means that visitors
to the Alaska-Yukon-Paciflc exposi
tion will be prohibited from Indulg
ing in the brain-wrecking cigarettes,
which will serve to make the exposi
tion a more pleasant place to visit
than it would have otherwise been.
Why does a state legislature enact
a law of this kind? Not because it
desires to prevent any person enjoy
ing the pleasures of the life. Not
because the legislature wishes to re
strain the people in their liberties.
Not because there is a desire to op- i
press anybody. The act was passed j
in the interest of the young men i
nnd boys of the state whose mental
end physical health is endangered j
by the use of the cigarettes. Other
states will in time nnd it to the au-1 to extend from Mr. Dunnigan's

denly of heart trouble. He was
about 60 years of age and was

manager of a small store. He mar
ried Alice, the daughter of the late

at the ,.Bee H,ve ft department
store in Newark, owned by W. V.
Snyder & Co., and at the time of
his death was head lloor-walker for
that concern. His health has been
falling for some years, but nothing
serious was expected, although he
had been confined to his home on
several occasions. Death came
suddenly and unexpectedly. He Is
survived by his wife and one sister,
Mrs. Dr. Reed Burns, of Scranton.
The funeral services were held at
Newark on Tuesday, and the body
brought to Honesdale on Wednes
day afternoon at 2:13, thence to
Bethany Presbyterian church where
services were conducted by Rev.
W. H. Swift, assisted by Rev. J. B.

at Bethany. Mr. Ward was
a man respected by all who knew
him and his friends in Newark and
Wayne county were legion.

An Emergency Message That Failed of
At ihe last session of congress there
was very close division on an im
portant measure that was pendiug. A
western member was lighting tho bill
with all of tho vigor at his command,
and his success depended absolutely
mi liis presence at his post. A clever
member of the opposition devised a
scheme whereby the troublesome man
tould be lured away. Accordingly on
the morning of tho day the vote was
to bo taken a telegram was sent to the
hotel of the fighting member. It read:
"Come home at once. Your wife Is
dangerously 111." The congressman
glanced at it, read It carefully two or
three times and then started toward
the capitol. Tho perpetrator of the
scheme asked tho congressman what
the telegram contained. He' showed It
"What!" gasped the Inquirer, "and
In the face of that are you going to the

It appears from two decisions late
ly made by the Superior Court of
this State that the owner of a horse
has still some rights with regard to
tho actions of other people tending
to frighten the same. In other
words, brass bands and automobiles,
under these decisions, have to be
handled with care.
In the brass band case, the Court
practically held that a brass band
had no right to take Its stand at tho
intersection of two streets, gather a
crowd around it and play with their
drums and horns in such a way as
to frighten the horse of a man driv
ing by at the time.
In the case of the automobiles, the
Court held that the operator o an
automobile had no right to discharge
from the same a volume of vapor
with a hissing sound and strong odor
in such a way as to frighten a horse
standing near by.
It looks as though the Court had
commenced to take cognizance of
these matters and to hold persons
occupying the streets and making
unusual noises frightening horses to
a strict accountability for their acts
and it would be wise for persons so
offending against the public to take
