Tho serious illness of Mrs. McKinley has cast a shadow over an otherwise enjoyable trip and called forth universal sympathy.

2 The Commoner. r; y less ormino of tlio judicial robe fell on John Jay, it touched nothing less spotless than itself." It was John Jay who was chosen to pre pare an address to thp people of Great Britain. This was in the nature of a protest against colonial government and was read in Congress Octoher 18, 1774. Three days later the ad dress was formally approved by Congress. That address has been referred to as "one of the land marks in the advancement of the prin ciple of self-government." The first para graph in that address deserves a place in every well regulated scrap hook. Read it: "When a nation led to greatness by the hand of liberty, and possessed of all the glory that heroism, munificence, and humanity can bestow, descends to the ungrateful task of forg ing chains for her friends and children, and, instead of giving support to freedom turns ad vocate for slavery and oppression, there is reason to suspect she has cither ceased to be virtuouB or been extremely negligent in t...

It is reproduced at this time because it presents the editor's views on the subjects considered on decoration day and also because it contains a recommendation that Lincoln's Gettysburg speech be read as part of the program each year a recommendation which has since been fol lowed in many places With flowers In our hands and sadncsB in our hearts we stand amid the tombs where the na tion's dead are sleeping.

W PVJfZ ? " The Commoner. Women Speculators. Even the women have not b'een exempt from the speculative craze which has recently been sweeping over the country. There may "be something attractive in the reports which have described the happiness of those wjio came off victorious in the struggle for gold. But although interesting, there is nothing inspir ing in the reportB of the hopeless, hapless crea tures who staked and lost their all in the gambling halls of Wall Street. A New York dispatch under date of May 0, to the Chicago Tribune, tells the story of how women, old and young, met their ruin while gambling in stocks. This is the tale: The Wall street panic was to women specula tors a stunning blow. Room traders up-town had the usual assembly of feminine patrons today. 'It was not so much a panicky as a hysterical market for them, and the men and women in charge of these places were hard put to it to keep any semblance of order. Some women speculators were those who started in wi...

; The Commoner. Good Advice. Interesting, But Not Reassuring. The new mayor of Garnctt, Kansas, after being sworn in to office, opened the city coun cil meeting with prayer, and issued a manifesto directed to the city officials advising them to "fear God, keep His commandments, and avoid cigarettes." It would be difficult to get more good advice into a volume than is contained in this terse admonition. If the Garnctt mayor's advice is followed the people of that town will have as faithful a lot of public officials as were ever called upon to serve the public. Maude Gonne, the famous champion of Ireland, predicts that within ten years Ireland will be a free and independent nation. Miss Gonne's optimism on this point is refreshing, but it would bo more reassuring if there was anything in the present situation to warrant the prediction. Certainly there is nothing in the attitude of British statesmen to ward Ireland that would give encouragement to Irish patriots. Even the pretenses of ...

The Brooklyn Eagle contains an in teresting account of the rlso and progress of m two Hebrew poets who have appeared in the ranks of the wage-carnors. It says: Ono is Morris Rosenfeld, who re cently wont there from New York, and tho other is Isaac Itoingold, who has lived there foi4 years. Both speak from experience; both have known tho pri vations and tho toil that thqy so pa thetically picture; both havo worked in sweat shops and both began their literary labors amid tho surroundings that thoy describe. In fact, tho first poems of both wero written while thoy wero earning their daily bread with tho shears and the needle, in that soul-destroying grind of which so much is heard and so little is really known by tho average man or woman.

To show the modern organization of agriculture under the "best conditions in a well-developed community in one of the central states, I take the actual instance of Mr. Bussell. Mr. Russell is a farmer who owns eighty acres of land and makes a specialty of dairying and fruit raising. Of course he hires a man and his wife by the year; gives them a neat, separate tenant-house, and pays them $300 a year in cash for their services. An electric car line runs past the farm to a good market town, about four miles away. A creamery and canning factory is reached by this same trolley route. At 5 o'clock in the morning, whir-r, whir-r goes an automatic electric alarm in the tenant house. The hired man gets up and hurries to the big barn. He feeds and grooms the cowa and cleans out the stalls. Then the proprietor arrives in time to help at the milking. Both men -wash their hands and put on clean -white duck BUits used only -when...

i The Commoner. Vol. u No.. 19. Lincoln, Nebraska, May 31, 1901. $1.00 a Year William J. Bryan. .Editor And Proprietor. Tillman and McLaurin. The most important item of political news last week came from South Carolina. Sena tors Tillman and McLaurin have agreed to leave their political differences to a democratic pri mary and to that end have placed their resig nations in the hands of the governor to take effect in November, after the primary has de termined the wishes of the voters. It is an honorable course for the senators to pursue and "beneficial to the state. At present' South Carolina virtually has no voice in the settle ment of public questions as the vote of one senator kills the vote of the other. Senator Tillman has just been re-elected and thus risks the loss of a longer term, but Sena tor McLaurin really sacrifices more because he has less chance to win at the primary. The readers of the Commoner will be kept inf ormedrasto-the progress-rofcstlie .contest. It. is needl...

In commenting upon these -words I said: "We yield to none in our devotion to the doc trine just enunciated. Our campaign has not for its object the reconstruction of society. We can not insure to the vicious the fruits of a virtuous life; we would not Invade the homo of the provi dent -In order to supply the wants of the spend thrift; we do not propose to transfer the rewards of industry to the lap of indolence.
