Let tho wholo thing be perfectly
clear. There must be no praise of
winning by fair means or foul.
Itoosevelt Is entirely at liberty to
start his third party movement but
let him and his followers squarely
6houIder their responsibilities. They
must go to the polls in November as
an independent party, and any at
tempt to smuggle themselves upon
the official ballot as Republicans will
only invite the abhorrence of honor
able men.
From a Georgia paper we learn
that the price of watormelons has
fallen so low that in one county
three thousand acres of the fruit aro
allowed to rot because the prices
will not pay for the picking. One
grower complains that he shipped a
carload to Philadelphia and got $5
after paying expenses. Watermelons
are far from being cheap here in
Honesdalo and we would llko to
know how it is that tho consumer
pays so much and tho grower gets
nothing. A good many melons can
be packed in a car and the freight
on any one melon is not much. It
looks as if we aught to be paying
no moro than ten cents each for a
good melon. Who gets tho surplus?
About a year ago it was reported
that there was a big increase in the
price of shoes in prospect. This
year it is announced that twenty per
cent, will be added on September 1.
That is ridiculous. It seems likely
that the price of shoes will increase
somewhat on account of tho high
price and scarcity of leather, but
twenty per cent, is out of tho 'ques
tion. Retail dealers hero say that
most of their contracts for fall shoes
were mado long ago and that there
Is not likely to be much difference
to tho consumer save in some of the
higher grades. One explanation of
the alleged rise is that automobiles
consume so much leather. It is true
that this irdustry consumes a good
deal of leather, but with free hides
this ought not to do much more than
tax tho tanneries to equal tho de
mand. We are assured by those
who ought to know that the price of
shoes is not likely to increase moro
than a small sum on a few grades,
and that tho public has no need of
anxiety on this subject in contem
plating tho Increased cost of living.
Colonel Roosevelt has been very
fond of drawing on Abraham Lincoln
for illustrations that seemed to lend
force to his own position. It may
bo out of place to recall a Lincoln
story that seems to fit tho exigency
that confronts tho Colonel.
Lincoln, as everyono knows, rolled
a good deal upon anecdotes to point
an argument or illustrato a problem
under discussion. Ono time, to ex
plain tho difficulty ho was having in
finding a suitable placo for a certain
army general, ho told a story about
a blacksmith who was struggling
with a pioco of metal that did not
seem woll suited for any use for
which It was tried. Ho endeavored
to hammer it first into ono thing and
then Into another, but each timo it
went back to tho forgo to bo heated
anew. At length tho blacksmith,
his patience almost worn out, de
cided that It tho piece of Iron would
tho Citizen Publishing Company.
not make anything else it at least
would mako a bolt, and so ho Eat
about trying to mako a bolt of tho
intractable metal. But It was not a
success as a bolt nny more than it
was as an as or a hammer. Finally
in disgust tho blacksmith hurled tho
hot iron into a tub of water and ex
claimed: "Well, If it won't make any
thing elso It will make a big fizzle."
The cold water that is being dash
ed on the Roosevelt boom and third
party movement from all parts of the
country suggests that this is what the
Colonel's third party movement Is
about to resolve Itself Into.
Col. Roosevelt says, in a recent
number of The Outlook, that: " No
self-respecting man should stay with
in the Republican party," under ex
isting conditions. That's rather hard
on us, Colonel. Wo have been In
the Republican party for a good
many years. Our fathers were in the
party before us. We feel at home In
It. We should hate to leave it. But,
at the same time, we want to retain
our self-respect. Can't tho thing be
compromised some way, Colonel?
Suppose we should discard Senator
LaFollette, a pretty lively Progres
sive Republican out In Wisconsin?
How would that do? Or suppose we
should drop Hon. William Flinn,
head of the present Republican or
ganization in Pennsylvania. Wouldn't
that fix It up for us so that we could
stay in the party? We don't llko to
part company, on such short notice,
with Lincoln and Garfield and Mc
Klnley and the other great Republi
cans of the past. There have been a
good many men in the party in years
gone by for whom we have had groat
reverence. We often confess to hav
ing had a sort of sneaking admira
tion for you, Colonel, when you were
a Republican. And as we look
around us now and consider the
standing and character and patriot
ism and political honesty of most of
the Republicans whom wo know,
both locally and In the state and na
tion, wo can't help having a kind
of notion that wo are still in pretty
good company. We want to preserve
our self-respect. Sure wo do! And
we're very sorry that you think there
can be no such person as a self-respecting
man who belongs to tho Re
publican party; that hereafter all
Republicans must of necessity be de
based and despicable in their own
esteem as they aro in yours wo are
sorry, but if you will kindly excuse
us, Colonel, wo think we'll remain
for another season yet, under the old
banner and with the old friends.
And you know there is a possibility
you won't admit It of course but
there Is Just a baro possibility that
you yourself aro raistakon in charg
ing all those of us who adhere to tho
Republican party as wanting in self
respect. Think it over a bit, Colonel;
maybe you will change your mind.

Manhattan Bench, N. Y July 25.
The Arbitration Commission to de
cldo whether tho Eastern railroads
ore to Increase tho wages of loco
motive engineers somo $7,500,000
nnnunlly, met Monday to resume ses
sions, when railroad officials began
the full presentation of their case.
The Commission arbitrating tho
present wage controversy is compos
ed of Oscar S. Straus, formerly
United States Secretary of Commerce
and Labor; Charles Richard Van
HIse, President of the University of
Wisconsin; Frederick Newton Jud
son, ono of tho leading lawyers of
St. Louis; Otto M. Eldlltz, formerly
President of tho Building Trades As
sociation of New York; Dr. Albert
Shaw, Editor of tho "Review of Re
views"; P. H. Morrlssey, formerly
President of tho Brotherhood of Rail
road Trainmen, and Daniel Wlllard,
President of tho Baltimoro & Ohio
They were chosen by Chief Justice
White, of the United States Supreme
Court, Martin A. Knapp, Presiding
Judge of tho Commcrco Court, and
Dr. Charles P. Neill, United States
Commissioner of Labor. Mr. Mor
risscy and Mr. Willard, the represen'
tatives of tho engineers and tho tall
roads respectively, who were to have
chosen tho other members of the
Commission, had been unable to agro
on tho remaining five to complete
the Board.
Last week was taken up with a
preliminary presentation of the rail
roads' case, and tho full presentation
of tho engineers' arguments for an
A careful analysis of tho demands
presented by tho locomotive en
glnecrs shows that they are demand
(1) Tho adoption of the principle
that wages and rules of servico shall
bo standardized throughout the East
em territory.
(2) Tho adoption of certain stand
ard rates of pay and certain standard
rules of service, resulting In increas
ed compensation to the engineers.
(3) Tho adoption of the princi
ple that locomotive engineers shall
havo the right to operate tho motive
power when it is changed from steam
to electricity or other motive power,
and that electric servico shall be gov
erned by the schedule covering rates
of pay and rules of servico in steam
(4) That locomotive engineers
shall havo the right to operate elec
tric or multiple unit trains when the
samo enter upon steam tracks or
tracks formerly operated by steam,
or where trackage rights are leased
to holding companies.
Tho railroads, on the other hand,
aro rejecting tho demands of the en
gineers as above set forth, upon tho
ground that existing rates of pay are
full and liberal, that existing rules
of servico bear some relation to local
conditions, that standardization of
either rates of pay or rules of ser
vice aro not Justified by conditions,
and that electric servico is not en
titled to be paid upon a steam basis.
In arguing the railroads' side of
the case, B. A. Worthington, Presi
dent of the Chicago & Alton Railroad
" In nearly every instance Stand
ardization will havo tho effect of im
posing a very heavy burden on a very
weak road.
" Tho railroads claim that the ex
isting wages aro fair and liberal,"
says Mr. Worthington, " becauso
railroad employes are as well, If not
oeuer, pam man laoor in otner em
ployments. Engineers constitute the
highest paid class of employes in tho
railroad service.
" Tho existing differential in the
rate of pay in favor of tho engineers
against tho conductors, growing out
of tho wage adjustment of 1910, cor
responds in a majority of cases with
tho differential theretofore existing
for a number of years in favor of the
engineers. Tho 1910 adjustment of
engineers' wagea was made, except
ing in threo or four Instances, on the
fifty-two railroads involved, subse
Treatment of Live Stock.
Horses and, in fact, all domestic
animals, aro very much moro Im
pressionable than they aro generally
supposed to bo. Cattle which havo

but firm nature, show tho effect of
their associations as a breed or
strain. Years of impressed with
such force as to become a bred char
acteristic. In short, good treatment

Individuals, but are a keen judge can

horso should not ho underrated.

will do moro work and do it better
than ono which has not got a well
balanced temperament.
