The statement that the emperor of
Germany is a courageous man can no
longer be doubted. While he wan in
London recently he bought some new
feats for bis wife without consulting
The ballooni8ts promise that this
will be a good year for flying, the
politicians are sure that it will be a
great year for running, the immigra-
tion bureau thinks it will be a greu
year for moving, while the auto own-
ers expect to go some.
Anyone who is striviug to make
the world better should first look the
•world squarely iu the face. He should
remember., uot only that, "whatever is,
is right," but that "whatever Is, is
no." Then, and only then, cau hf
help humanity in a practical kind of
uplift that will go."

She is not the sort of woman to be
flaunted into public view, shameless
though she be in capitalizing her ex-
ploits as Manuel's favorite at $4,000
a week, which it is reported will be
paid to her on an American tour.
After all that has been printed
about this saucy damsel, it would be
surprising, indeed, if she failed to at-
tract further attention by appearing
here as Manuel's friend.
But her hopes should be cut short
by actiou on the part of the Ameri-
can people against her landing—from
the moral point of view, she Is dis-
tinctly among the undesirables.
It is a fact that the peasantry of
most countries has better health than
any other class of people in the same
latitude. The reason is easily found.
Out-of-door air, simple food, uot too

own living are probauly the best fac
tors for good health.
On Jan. I, the Grand Trunk put
into operation a pension system
which is said to be the most compre-
hensive and generous in existence.
The system embraces every employe
in the United States and Canada
The compulsory retiring age has been
fixed at 65 years and the minimum
pension $200 per annum. No maxi-
mum pension has been designated
Clyde Fenimore Burns, associate
editor of the Railway Review, in
recent magazine article on "Will the
Railroads Abandon Steam?" answers
it affirmatively in the long run. He
says: "The present operating cost
for the movement of every car and
engine in the country is $1,400,000,000
in one year. By electrification this
would be reduced by about $250,000,
000, representing that much actua
saving. The total cost of changing
the entire railway system from steam
to electric roads is estimated at $1

J. M. BROADY,
United States senate have lost a;
great public servant by the death of
Senator Frye. For 30 years follow-
ing the senatorship of James G
Blaine, Senator Frye devoted his lif<*
to public service, and to the interests
of the whole country.
Quite as widely known was John
W. Gates, the financier, whose busi-
ness career covered about an equnl
period, but whose activities were di-
rected in the interests of John W.
Gates. Dollar hunters will accord to
John W. Gates a greater fame than
to Maine's senior senator, but the
history of the years to come will
doubtless show the name of the pub-
lic's survitor, when Wall street will
have forgotten the spectacular deals
of the great trader.
While he lived the fame of Gates
was likely more advertised but his
labors were not as enduring as that
of the constructive statesman.
DESLYS, THE DANCER.
Is Gaby Deslys to bo permitted to
ct>me to America without a protest?
This woman, known here solely be-
cause she danced herself into the
favor of Portugal's deposed and
exiled king, is certainly undesirable.
She may have talent, though it is
doubtful if it is more than mediocre,
have a very large number of literary
students. 1 think that we will b
able to give you value received. That
certainly will be our purpose.
Now, fellow citizens, if you be
lleve in us, if you want to help us
to succeed, if you want to show the
people of Oklahoma that you believ
in the institution, then 1 most en
nestly ask that you give us your pat
ronage. I will guard your children
as if they were my own.

Oklahoma City. Aug. 11. The in-
vestigation by Go\ Lee Cruce of W.
E. McLamore, state enforcement of-
ficer, on a charge of conduct unbe-
coming an officer, is to make public
many things which will surprise Ok-
lahoma City and Oklahoma county
1 eople. according to those who are
interested in the case. The inves-
tigation is now scheduled for Monday.
While the investigation is chiefly to
concern McLamore, the inquiry will
go into the actions of certain other
state enforcement officers who are
alleged to have made their head-
quarters at certain roadhouses in the
west part of the city. Liquor con-
fiscated by certain officers is said
have been sold to the roadhouse
The instigators of the inquiry also
assert that the officers have received
donations from city and county boot-
leggers for protection. The money it
is alleged as given them by a local
attorney who acted as go-between.
The bootleggers are said to have do-
nated from $20 to $30 a month to
have iheir places passed by.

large that officials at the Brooklyn

The matter was discussed at a
meeting of officers of high rank a

that the juniors had too little to do;
others were strongly in favor of re-
stricting shore leave almost entirely
It was urged that many cases of
