WKDNKSDAY, JANUAHY 10, 1010.
One blessed liopo wo havo to holp
keep us warm this winter, Is that
Ice may bo chenp next summer.
Speaker Cannon, "Uncle Joe," did
wino talking on Thursday when ho
gave a treatise on party regularity,
but not until the newspaper boys
did a whole lot of coaxing. Cannon
has been in the political game long
enough to know that anything said
by him on the subject is certain to
cause the people generally to do
just a bit of thinking.
"Jly test of regularity In politics,
church, finance, or family," ho said.
is "co-operation, harmony. I am a
great believer in caucus the wick
ed caucus. Get together and fight
out the differences there, and if
you are licked, come back and fight
again. We can't all have our way
in this world. We do not have our
way, no matter how big or high wo
may be. The manly man gives and
takes, fights or yields, as he thinks
best for his cause. I haven't much
patience In these men who are wiser
than all the other fellows put to
gether, and whose views are un
changeable. I always feel that a
man of that sort has no business in
an organization. If he can't light it
out in party ranks and yield if he
is beaten then he had better go out
and join the enemy, or, better still,
form an organization of his own."
Certain Democratic organs alarm
ed at the consequences to Demo
cracy of Taft's appointment of a
Democrat to the Supreme Court
Bench yell loudly and wonder
what the Republicans In the South
will finally think of the President
in refusing to build up his own par
ty in the South.
The Democrats are worried. They
seo things. They cannot under
stand why the pie does not always
go to the hungered of the same
faith. They saw in the appoint
ment of a North Carolina federal
judge a terrible mistake made by
Taft. But as the appointment was
a Democrat glorified they couldn't
say anything against that. But
Democracy becomes the keeper of
its brother and its brother is a Re
publican. But bless your souls it is easy
to see the point. .President Taft
feels that incidentally he is Presi
dent of the country President of
the Democrats Just as much as of
the Republicans, although demo
cracy voted against him.
What does it all mean? It means
that President Taft proposes to show
the South that he is bigger than any
Democrat yet hatched. He proposes
to suggest, officially, that he will
choose the man he wants for an
Important position the man in his
judgment best fitted he proposes
briefly to go after Men, not polltl
cains. And how will it work In the long
run? How will it come out of the
wash? Why, when Mr. Taft or any
other Republican runs again for
president tho Democracy that al
ways had a happy habit of attempt
ing to frighten the South with bogle
men called radicals will bo like
Othello with their occupation gone.
Taft has emphasized and will furth
er prove that tho federal bogie man
is a myth. Therefore when tho
Democracy attempts to yell
"federal laws" and Insist that Re
publicanism means destruction to
the South tho records will point
that tho Republican party recog
nized decent Democrats and what
are you going to do about it? No
wonder tho Democratic papers are
yelling loudly. No wonder they seo
much harm to tho Republican par
ty but their zeal is understood.
They see what all men seo that
President Taft is leaving a record
that will make Democratic success
forever impossible. Ho has taken
away from Democracy its last hope
tho hope to abuse tho Republican
party by yelling "Radical"- when
forsooth, thero is nothing radical
It develops as wa progress, that
President Taft is as much of a di
plomat as he Is a lawyer and judgo
and tho whole country will lovo the
man before ho has finished his first
' go round. And that Is why Domo
cracy Is unhappy.

According to a recent report to
tho Senate by tho Commissioner of
Pcns'ons, tho soldiers who served in
tho Union army, during tho Civil
war, are dying at the rate of one
every fourteen minutes.
It makes people tired to hear tho
Insurgents and rhlnoceros-hlded
Democrats grinding and harping
about Cannon being an "old fogy"
and so forth. These noisy objectors
havo forgotton about their
Methusalah Gassaway Davis, who
sat on tho tall end of the Democratic
ticket in 1904. Why Joo Cannon
looks and acts young enough to bo
a grandson of Gassaway.
Tho esteemed editor of tho Her

KHMINGTON'8 JCAKLiY CAREER.
This sketch of Remington's early
career appears' In tho Now York Sun:
"Fred Remington was born in
Nwo York State. His father was a
newspaper man and political factor
whoso editorials had a rank of their
own among county newspapers. His
homo was at Canton, St. Lawrence
county, nnd thero his Bon wns born
on October 4, 18G1. Tho boy wns
a lively youngstor, much given to
outdoor sport and not taking a very
serious view of life. His father
wanted htm to be a newspaper man,
but Fred felt tho call of art, or
thought he did ho had a second
thought presently and it was long
ere ho returned again to nrt and
at the age of eighteen was permitted
to go to tho Yale nrt school. Ho
didn't learn much there, ho used to
confess; that is, not much of what
ho went thero to learn, but be got
a lot of Information about football
and wns on Walter Camp's original
eleven when Camp was booming
nnd developing tho American game.
Tho death of his father' interrupted
his course at Yale and ho returned
to his home and worked as clerk
In a country store, afterwnrd acting
as confidential clerk to Governor
Cornell at Albany. Then he took
1,ls flmrc of tho Patrimony and went
west ns a cow-punchor, an occupa-1
tlon at which ho kept for four years,
practically living In tho saddle, much
of the time In Montana. Part of tho
time ho lived among tho soldiers at
army posts, taking especially to the
cavalry. He got ahead, established
a sheep ranch and a mulo ranch and
made some money, went to Kansas
and lost It, and then wandered farth
er to the Southwest, serving as
scout, ranchman, anything that of
fered In tho free and exciting life
of the great plains. He has been
over the ground from the interior of
Mexico to Hudson Bay. Once when
ho 'dropt his wad he made up his
mind to quit ranching and come
East. His father's friends, Senator
Piatt among them, were ready to
help him and he soon had a job at
clerical work in the office. Figures
fretted him and he went to the sup
erintendent of the counting-room
one day and said to him: 'Do you
like this sort of work?'
" 'I do,' said the man.
" 'Well, you are welcome to all
you want of it. I don't,' said Rem
ington and he put on his hat and
coat and went out.
"The next place he got ho stayed
half an hour. Tho West was calling
again and art once more was stirring
within hlra. He had always liked
to make pencil sketches, and he
went to the editor of The Century
Magazine and told him of an as
tonishing group of Indians of the
Southwest and asked to be Bent out
there to mako drawings of them and.
to have a writer sent with him.
Remington was so enthusiastic and
so entertaining in his talk that tho
editor told him to go out there and
do the whole thing himself, both the
writing and illustrating. Reming
ton told tho editor that the only
writing ho had ever done to his sat
isfaction was signing" his name on
tho back of a railroad pass.
" 'Never mind,' said the editor,
'If you write what you have told me
you will do well enough.'
"Remington went ,and a little
later presented himself to tho pub
lic as an illustrator and author in
The Century and in the Harper
