September seems to me to be the
fairy among the months of the year.
She is so crowded with gold, so full
of play and magic spells, she has no
work to do, and It Is she who trans
forms the green woods and gray
marshes to wonderlands of fairy fire,
and brings the great pale moon back
round and full night after night into
the skies. Yes, September has a
magic ! Illldegardo Hawthorne.
Laboring under the disadvantage
Imposed by hostile control of the
House of Representatives and a hope
lessly split majority In the Senate of
the Sixty-second Congress, President
Taft has had an unusually difficult
course to steer. The majority In the
House, ably captained, with a deplor
able but thoroughly human Instinct
has Insisted on "playing politics."
The Insurgent Senators have bent
their energies to play the devil. In
the Congress the Republican party
has been in a hopeless minority.
Under these circumstances the pos
ition of the Executive has been vex
atious, trying and exposed to unusual
dangers. It is to Mr. Taffs credit
that he has sustained it without more
concessions to tho expediencies of the
hour or the necessities of the politi
cal campaign In which he is engaged.
He has been the President of the
United States first and an intelligent
partisan second. He has not been a
trimmer, nor has he sacrificed his
convictions because of clamor or mis
representation. President Taft has made mistakes
as every 'President must. But his es
sential sincerity, modesty, good sense
and strength of character aro con
vincingly apparent. New York Sun.
session. Hotchklss and Prendor
gast, the two rival candidates, had
locked horns for a determined strug
gle when a somewhat spectacular
character, known widely as "Sus
pender Jack" McGce, mounted the
platform and in an impassioned
speech presented tho name of Mr.
Straus. Tho idea caught tho con
vention, tho delegates wcro swept
from their feet, everybody was
shouting for Straus, Hotchklss and
Prendergast and Timothy Woodruff,
seeing tho unavoidable trend of
things, tumbled over each other to
second the nomination and amid wild
applause and enthusiasm It was made
Whether this nomination was tho
result of a careful but secret pulling
of the wires, or, as It appears to be,
the unpremeditated result of a situa
tion grasped at the psychological
moment, does not now matter. It is
in many respects an admirable one.
Mr. Straus is a man of exceptional
character and standing. As business
man, philanthropist, cabinet mem
ber, and foreign ambassador he has
done distinguished service to his
country and deserves well of his
fellowmen. But the platform adopt
ed by the convention, on which he is
supposed to stand, will doubtless
prove his undoing. The voters of tho
Empire stato aro not yet ready to
accept in all of Its eccentric and
rauicai ieatures tne Roosevelt pro
paganda. Nevertheless- it behooves
the Republicans of the Stato to meet
this nomination with one equally as
President Taft undoubtedly is
winning the approbation of large
numbers of his fellow country
men by the dignified course ho is
pursuing with relation to his candi
dacy for a second term.
While the Insatiable Third-Termer
Is cavorting about tho country
with his customary clatter, and tho
Democratic candidate is Issuing
daily pronunclamentos as to his atti

attention quietly to directing tho af

The unparalleled campaign of
abuse and misrepresentation waged
against him by Theodore Roosevelt
in advance of the primaries made It
necessary for tho President for a
time to enter tho lists and personally
correct tho falsehoods uttered
against hlmsolf and his administra

possible to do so ho quit tho stump

this will be tho best proposition of

form will be fifteen miles long, four
miles wide, and cover twelve thous

feet, yielding from 20,000 to 25,
000 horse power. This great lake
is to furnish power for various In

of this vast undertaking here will be

Tho Progressive stato convention
of Now York, held at Syracuse last
week, nominated Oscar S. Straus as
its candidate lor govornor. Tho
nomination camo as a dramatic cli
max to an otherwise uninteresting
The result of tho stato election in
vurmonc last, weeic is doubtless a
fair indication of what tho result of
the national election will bo in No
vomber. After a vigorous campaign
by all three of tho leading parties,
the vote stood In round numbers
about as follows: Republican 2C.000,
Democrat 20,000, Progressive 15,-
000. An analysis of tho result
shows that the Progressive votes
camo entirely from former adher
ents of the Republican party. Not
only did tho Progressives fail to
draw from the Democratic ranks, but
tho Democrats, encouraged by tho
three cornered fight, increased their
normal vote by about three thousand.
Neither party having polled a plur
ality of tho votes, the election will
be thrown Into the state legislature
and as that is strongly Republican,
a Republican administration for Ver
mont is assured.
The position of tho Progressive
party in this campaign is strongly
Indicated by the vote In Vermont.
Its strength Is drawn entirely from
tho Republican ranks. It cannot
hope to poll as many votes as will
tho Republican party. As in Ver
mont, it can cripplo but It cannot kill
tho party from which It separated.
Tho only advantage to bo attained
by any party as a result of tho Bull
Mooso movement will accruo to tho
Democrats. This was clearly fore
seen when tho movement was in
augurated. Not that tho leaders de
sired Democratic success, but that
Col. Roosovelt and thoso in his con
fidence, had but ono end in view,
and that was tho defeat of President
Taft and thoso who supported him
as against tho third term candidate.
Whilo it is already clear that Col.
Roosevelt cannot bo elected ho is
still carrying on his campaign In tho
hope of defeating nnd humiliating
tho President and his administration
by any means in his power, oven
though it should lead to Domocratlc
success and tho consequent ovils of
froo trade. But tho Progressive
movement has reached Its climax
and Is now on tho wanu aB tho re
sult In Vermont distinctly proves.
And as its purposes and fallacies
como day by day to bo hotter under
stood by tho peoplo, and its strength
dwindles accordingly, tho Domocrat
lc hopo of defeating tho old-tlmo an
tagonist of Democracy, 'becomes
raoro and moro faint. Tho campaign
of education is going steadily on, and
long before tho day of the November
election tho result so clearly fore
shadowed in Vermont will be practi
cally assured.

The latest Information is that C.
D. Fortnam and bride were given one
of the loudest serenades on wednes
day night last that has been heard In
these parts since boys were boys,
Night was mado hideous until mid
night by the use of various kinds of
instruments, and weapons or war-
