Perhaps serious faults should not be
found with residents of Indian Terrl-
entory for the position they have taken
as it Is to be expected that they will
use every advantage to be gained
through their proximity to Oklahoma.
While in so doing they are holding
back a territory that Is commonly
known and believed to be ready for
statehood at this time, they are mak-
ing their own case stronger each day
they delay Oklahoma, and it seems
probable that they care little for Ok-
lahoma's feelings in the matter. Some
residents of Indian Territory have at
times been very bitter In denunciation
of Oklahoma republicans, alleging that
they aro showing a lack of regard for
the rights of their neighbors, but it
is doubtful If Oklahomans have ever
gone as far as to say that, even though
they believed Indian Territory not
ready for statehood, they would oppose
a bill conferring sovereignty on the two
territories If It were seen that its pas-
sage were possible. This, however Is
about such a position as the Indian
Territory delegates to the Shawnee
convention have* taken.
However, from an Oklahoma stand-
point. the resolutions are gratifying.
They make plainer the single-staters
belief that the passage of a statehood
bill for Oklahoma is much nearer than
is the probability for the passage of a
Joint statehood bill, and that they are
in favor of holding back one territory
until the other is ready for, and possi-
ible as, a part of the new state. It Is
with this Idea that Oklahomana will
find fault. They want immediato
statehood. the kind that can be secur-
ed quickest will suit them best. Re-
cent declarations of men high In au-
thority and well versed in knowledge
of Indian Territory conditions, a gen-
eral knowledge of titles and taxable
values as they now oxlst, persuade
them that single statehood is at this
time Impossible. On the other hand.

OUT OF MICHIGAN
The news that the university of
Michigan's dally paper always known
in abbreviation as the "U of M. Dally,"
has been bought by the administra-
tion, and will henceforth be an official
publication, Is certain to start discus-
sion among the thousand of undergrad-
uate editors, Cast and West There
are now about a score of college dail-
ies and their position is seldom per-
fectly satisfactory. The rocks of the
classical metaphor are hard to avoid.
On the one hand, the paper must not
be made purely a vehicle for official
notices, and on the other, it must not
become yellow. It Is constantly com-
peting with tbe outside newspapers
which print college news, and also with
the hallway bulletin boards, which give
their information for nothing. This,
too, is only a problem of the executive
editors of the paper. When questions
of policy are concerned, the situation is
even more delicate. What is to be done
when the editors believe that an u.i-
wise or unjust policy has been institut-
ed by faculty or trustees? What is \o
t doss unywhere else, when It
has permanent orchestras to bent the
band and when th«-r ' are amateurs who
are ready to pay $70,000 deficits year afte r
year just for the love of the gentle art?

THE "KEEP- A-GOIN' " SCHOOL OF
One of the encourglng signs of the
time* is the widespread popularity of what
might be cniled "ksep-a-goln" ,r poetry.
We see this kind of poetry in nearly all
the great Journals of the land. It la the
poetry of hope, and the people must like
It or the output would be reduced, liopo
springs sternal In the human breast, wo
are told, but perhaps the keep-a-golng' "
poets feel that a spring which has no out-
let Isn't any better than no spring at ail.
8o they .sing these songs of good ciear.
Sometimes tne "keop-a-tfoln" poem comes
along In about this style:
When the road looks dark ahead
When your heart Is tilled with dread
Don't give up the light today:
Who can tell? Tomorrow tnay
Bi« yjur •.-oihlM i l< ared a-va/,
Ke- p n g. i i ;
Then there Is the "keep-a-comln'"
style.. This In merely a variation of the
"keep-a-goln" " poem, and is generally
conatrueted after the following fashion:
Does th« world Ignore your worth'.'
Are you weary of this -arth?
Though your feet are bruised and sore
Who can tell? J-jst on befo.e
Joy for you may be In store.
Also there is the "keep-a-plugln" "
lem. whleh Is popular, especially In the
est ami southwest. Scores of poets are
keeping busy year In and year out furn-
ishing "keep-a-comln' " poems to the
clamorous masses. This Is the style of
the "keep-a-pluggln' " song:
If your burdep'a hnrd to bear
Joy Is on ahead somewhere.
No use slttln' down to fret,
Whlnln* never helped man yet.
Grit your tseth, get up and get.
Keep a-pluggln'; >
Of tho same general style of poetry la
the "keep a-smllin' " poem, which has a
wide and well deserved popularity, es-
pecially In the south, where it Is almost
as well known as the watermelon poem.
This is a sample of the "keep a-snulln" "
Ain't no use to sit and frown,
Fnts csn't always hold you down.
Clouds'll roll off pretty soon.
All the bells of Joy In tune
Itingin' roses round In June-
Another and a Justly popular version Is
the "keep a-hoplu' " stylo. This blooms
In all parts of the country and mav bo
found growing wild In winter as well
In summer. It tskeH about this form:
If your lot seems very sad
Maybe things are not so bad,
There's a laugh for every sigh
You'll have your turn by-and-by,
Can't win out unless you try,
Every little while wo hear of somebody
Who was about to glvo up the fight when
happened to find an old newspaper and
read a "ktep-a-goln" " or a "keep-i

he goes ahead and in a little while his
wife is keeping two servants besides
nurse, and he has an automobile. It Is
probable, too. that scores of people who
do not acknowledge the truth has been
saved by the "keep a-comln' " and the
"keep a-tryln* " poems. It may have beer
such a poem that kept John W. Gates
from becoming discouraged and going
back to the farm after his first deal In

turn the light on peonage.
The only thing to be done In the matter
Of the peonage charges in Alabama is for
the Htatu authorities to take up the work
of Investigation with a free hand, help-
ing any federal Inquiry that may be in
progress. All the people of Alabama must
not be made responsible for the cruelty
of a few contractors of convict labor. The
practice of hiring out convicts to private
parties has always resulted in abuses,
nardly as bad as the convicta themselves
maintain, but nevertheless shocking to all
persons of sensibility. Prisoners ought
to be punished only In accordance with
court decrees no matter how brutal and
treacherous they may be. The hand of
man ought never to be laid In wrath upon
any of the earth's unfortunates evan un-
der the moat extreme provocation.
We have no doubt the atorlea of the
convicta are exaggerated, but as the
Courier-Journal was always against the
Infamous convict lease system until It
drove it out of this state many years ago.
ao It Is against the system anywhere and
everywhere. It hnpes the people of Ala-
bama, through their own officers, will
probe these charges to the bottom and
then act as la best. This will vindicate
the fair name of an Illustrious state, *uch
as no other proceeding could be effectual

It Is encouraging to get a plan, straight,
unexnggerated. unemotional statement
from tho best authority on tho subject.
The quiet efficiency with which thia re-
markable administrator ti dealing with
the agricultural situation in the islands is
reflected in the tone of his report to the
war detriment. Thero is a shortage of
the usual food supply, but Governor Taft
haa been surprised to find thus far how
little real famine or hunger there has
been. Not a single provincial governor
has yet made requisition for free rice.
Any possible calls In tho summer months
will be readily met by the commlsalon
from its fund of $8,000,000 available for
that purpose, a threatened corner In rice
was prevented by government purchases
of the article, amounting to M00,000 trold.
The entire report of Governor Taft ia
as full of practical common sense as It is
free from either foolish optimism or any
conscious or unconscious exaggeration of
conditions with a view to magnifying the
Importance of hla executive efforts. It will
be read with the Increased conviction that

cleveland DODGE8 the main
Former President Orover Cleveland
takes two hundred and twenty-five words
In which to Inform a correspondent for the
New York World that he is out of politics
and that he haa no desire to re-enter pub-
lic life. Indeed he assures the country
:jiat he haa not "remotely entertalnd the
thought" since he left Washington more
than six years ago.
Mr Cleveland does not atop with theae
Illuminating utterances regarding his at-
titude toward a fourth randldacv. Tho
ex-president waa never known to aacrl-
tlce clearness to succinct utterance. Al-
though a plain blunt man. he haa no fond-
neas for brevity when It comes to eluci-
dating a proposition In which he is in-
terested. He loves to amplify and elabor-
ate. lie has a penchant for stating a
propoaltion In several different kinds of
sentences, ao that no one may misunder-
atand hla meaning
That is what he did In making his state-
ment to the New York newspaper's corre-
The annual Fourth of July noise and
slaughter are beginning enrller, continu-
ing longer, and growing more frightful
each year. Officers, and especially the
henlth officers of cities, should ponder
well the article published on "Fourth of
July Tetanus" by Doctor Wells In Ameri-
can Medicine, June 13. 1908. In Chicago
the health conamitRloner a month before
the craze should begin, already reporta
during the five preceding weeka seven
deaths from tetanus due to flrenrms. toy
pistols, etc. In last year's entire seaaon
there were only twelve, and in 19fll. when
the mayor'a proclamation was enforced,
the number was reduced to four. It had
been twenty-four In 1900. Health officers
should issue popular directions how to
treat such wounds, ns Dr. Reynolds has
done. The Journal of the American Medi-
cal association says that the greater num-
ber of cases follow bad treatment of phy-
slclana. who do not act with scientific
thoroughness. "The responsibility lies
with the phyali'lan who first Bees the
wound." The selling or use of the deadly
and misnamed tov pistol should be pun-
ished. And one day Is enough! If mayors
cannot he made to do their duty as to
this single day let them rigorously pre-
vent criminal folly from beginning a
month or two before and dragging on for
a month after the fatal day of "celebra-
New York Evening Post.
One moral to be drawn from the prog-
ress of the postal Investigation Is that the
way to prevent a destructive flood Is to
head off the little streams which go to
11 the big one. The Postoffice depart-
lt probably contains as many honest
d up: Ight clerks as any oth«-r of equal
sire; yet the effect of the disclosures of
the last three months has been to spread
the idea that it is a nest of corruption,
and Justly or unjustly to put everyone
connected with It under the shadow of
suspicion. Now, what good citizens de-
mand is not a long catalogue of exposures
of Individual wrongdoing, but restoration
of purity In administration. It is the
substance of reform, not the mere insig-
nia. that they care about; and the way
to make administration pure and keep It
so Is to take up each charge of corruption
of Irregularis or even indiscretion, as it
arises, and dispose of it then and there.
Tbnt lessens the posalbillty of a torrental
accumulation such as we have recentlv
witnessed. In which crime and error, bad
motives and bad Judgment become so con-
fused that there Is no separating them,
and malefactor and unfortunate go down
Into the abyss of infamy together.
THE COMING GREATEST CITY.
St Louis Globe-Democrat.
The fact that New York city Is soon to
have the largest bank in the world need
not surprise anybody. New York ia the
second of the world's cities in size and
the first in the amount of busnl.ss The
total of Its bank clearings has le<l that of
London for several years. The gup be-
tween them must grow wider as time
passes. More millionaires reside In New
York than In London and Paris together.
Within a quarter or a third of a century
New York, at the present relative rate
of increase of the two towns, will lead
Losidon In population. Long before that
time the world's financial center will be
on this side of the Atlantic. That $100.-
000,000 bank which la soon to be establish-
ed in the American metropolis will prob-
ably have many counterparts within the
next ten years.
The Hanta Fe lost 443 cars loads of mer- '
chandiae by damage In the flood. It is
estimated that the losaea will average $1.- '
000 per car, or $443,W"i

There is never any use to worry over

crop ia planted and everything done to
make a success of It. If there are good
seasons there will be a bountiful harvest,
and If there are bad seasons there will
be a poor harvest, or a medium harvest.
