One of the G. O. P. spellbinders

warming up in Portland and Bangor

as "Bill" BENNET. He is slated
to talk this week and next in the
principal Pine Tree cities and then,

Maine will be benefited by his lucid

IS NOT A BRYAN VICTORY.
HOKE SMITH, who will bo the
next governor of Georgia, having just
administered an impressive primary
whaling to Gov. LITTLE JOE
BROWN, the deposed railroad com
missioner who In 1908 downed Gov.
HOKE by 14,000 and a littlo bit
more, is a BRYAN man from tho top
of his high Panama to the solo of his
patont leather footings; but the
SMITH victory in tho Peachtree stato
should by no means bo counted as
equivalent to a resumption of the
Peerless Pleader's prestige In tho
most intelligent state, of tho solid
South. Tho anti-railroad agitation
that elected SMITH tho first time
was again very busy as primary day
drew on; other local Issues, with
possible statewide prohibition in tho
background, assuredly had something
to do with tho return of SMITH to
the statehouse in Atlanta.
Mr. BRYAN never was strong in
Georgia; and no mentally vigorous
southern Democrat savo Capt. GON
ZALES of Columbia and Col. JOE
DANIELS of Raleigh 1b green enough
to believe tho thrice-belated knight of !
the Platto country could get a fourth
nomination if he wanted it. Mr.
BRYAN, though ho never tells it, Is
as much n 16 to 1 advocato today
as he was in that spellbinding 1896
campaign of his. He still believes
there should be silver coins among
the gold. The South sorao time since

becility of 14 years ago, and tho man
who still Is a sllverlte at heart is as
dead politically In the country below
the Potomac and the Ohio as ho be
came in his own Nebraska when a
state convention that is a part of very
recent political history told him to go

The census olllco announces that
Paterson's population, 105,000 In
1900. Is 125,000 now. How many
out of that new 20,000 are Anar
chists? We wrote something the
other day obout the desirability of
quality as well as quantity in the
population of large, cosmopolitan
cities and here is an illustration. If
1,000 out of Paterson's 20,000 new
citizens arc men and women trained
to troop under the red flag, it would
have been much better If the Jer
sey silk city, with her 100 mills and
her abundant opportunities for the
employment of skilful and order
ly workmen, had rested at 75,000 in
1890 instead of climbing to 105,000
in 1900 and to 125,000 in 1910.
There was sincere sorrow mani

the sad news was broken in the
borough that ORVILLE L. ROW

companion, had crossed the river
where there is no bridge. His call
ing away was so sudden, so totally
unexpected, that his friends and
he had a world of them in Pike as
well as in Wayne county simply
cannot comprehend It. The men
that knew him best will mourn for
ORVILLE ROWLAND many days.
He was accomplished, unostentatious,
approachable and kind. Ho made
his friends readily, without seeming
effort, and his friends stuck by him.
No man In the circle wherein he
moved was more congenial to his
associates, and on those who met
him professionally and otherwise
the loss occasioned by his untimely
death is second only to that of the
family bereaved. They know, as
well as any men need to know,
there was much to admire and to
love in this man ROWLAND, and
to them it is particularly distressing
to see him cut down in his prime.

When I was a lawyer In Wood
county, Ohio, I met some interesting
men. There was W. F. Duncan, Judge
of the common pleas court in Han

In tho lot was Tyler, a criminal
lawyer, who once was hired to de

but the $500 promised by tho broth-1

Tyler rendered bills, but they were
Ignored. At last he got tired of
waiting. Selecting a day when he
knew the brother of his client would
have a storeful of customers, he
walked In, strode up to the counter
where tho proprietor was handing
a bundle to one of his best custom
ers, and shouted:
"Did you employ mo to dofend
your brother and keep him out of
"I certainly did," meekly an
swered the frightened man on the
other side of the counter.
"Did you, or did you not, agree
to pay me ?500 mind you, sir,

"Yes, I did," was the desperate
"And did I succeed, sir, in
keeping that rascal out of the pen,

eager for a settlement on most any
basis. "That's what you did, Mr.
"And did you pay me, sir? Did
you give me that $500 you agreed
to give me for keeping your rascally
relative out of state's prison, tho

"I don't," began the proprietor.
"Can you give me a check today,
sir a check for $500, to pay me
for keeping your "
"Here's your money," fairly
shouted the agonized man behind
the counter. "I'm making you a
check. (He was getting out the
book and the pen.) I'll pay you
now. I'll give you $500. I'll "
Before he finished, Tyler had the
check and was off, and tho proprie
