SECRETARY ROOT S MISSION.
K. C Star
The President l.as gone to his
summer home in Oyster Ray and
Cabinet members are going here
and there away from Washing-
ton, but these summer journeys
do not mean rest. The Roose
velt system doesn't provide for
rests. It has been go and do
from the day the President took
his chair, and those of his official
family who could not keep up
the gait had to drop into some
easier berth or quit altogether.
Mr. Roosevelt has gathered a
group of "stayers" about him,
with Taft and Root as pace
makers. And think of the State
Secretary's vacation across the
equator to Buenos Ay res, with
the delightful summer task of
conciliating several Spanish-
American nations that want to
understand! They know the
United States as a power that
protects then) from |iossible ag
gressions of European, but be-
yond that office they look upon it
as an enemy protecting its prey
only to the time when it should
find convenience to dovour it.
These Souih Americans acci-pt
America as a defender, but do
their trading with the nations
threatening Mr. Root is to
prove to the Southern neighbors
thn' A'ii 'rioa is a friend as well
as a protector and that it would
profit them to have social, com-
mercial and close political rela
tions with the United States, in
stead of passively accepting this
government as protector only
Mr. Root will have a busv sum
mer, but that is to be exiiecied
of a man in the Roosevelt ser
vice. Mr. Root's mission will
probably bring good results,
and that. too. has come to be ex
pected of Roosevelt plans.

"In the session that has just
closed, the congress has done
more substantial work for good
than any congress at any ses
sion since I became familiar with
public affairs. The legislation
has been along the line of real
constructive slatesmenship of
the most practical and efficient
type and bill after bill has been
enacted which has been of an
importance so great that it is
fair to say that tho enactment of
any one of them would have made
the session memorable: such for
instance, as the railroad rate bill,
the meat inspection measure, the
pure food bill, the bill for free
alcohol in the arts, the consular
reform bill. Panama canal legis-
lation, the joint statehood bill
and the naturalization bill.

—Pond Creek Vidette.
Congress adjourned last Satur-
day, and presumably the senators
and congressman are kicking up
their heels like boys out of
school. While we have at times
been disposed to rail at it, this
has beeu a good congress after
all, and when you come to cast
up its work you find that a large
amount of very important work
has beeu accomplished during
the session just closed. If the
senators and congressmen will
feel any better about it, we are
willing for them to know that
this paper is fairly well pleased
with their labors.
From the way the Democratic
papers jump in to tight Wm.
Johnston, of Bartlesville, they
must regard hira as a strong
man. The Nowata Star accuses
the papers that have mentioned
him as a candidate for congress
of being "bought up." When
the editor of the Star gels better
acquainted with the writer he
will not cast such insinuations in
this direction. We cannot say
at this time whether the editor
of the Messenger will personally
favor Mr. Johnston's nomination
or not. We never met the gen
tleman, and don't know him.
The fact reported in this paper,
however, that he seems to be the
favorite amoug Republicans in
this vicinity, remains a fact, and
we don't think they are bought
either. There is too much of
this talk about buying. The
writer has been pretty intimate
ly acquainted with quite a num-
ber of newspaper men in three
states during the past thirty
years, and in his opinion there
are very few editors. Republican
or Democratic, who can he
bought by politicians.

Modest Claims Often Carry the Host
When Maxim, the famous gun In-
ventor, placed his gun before a com-
mittee of judges, he stated its carry-
ing power to be much below what he
felt sure the gun would accomplish.
The result of the trial was therefore
a great surprise, instead of a disap-
pointment. It is the same with the
manufacturers of Chamberlain's Colic
Cholera and Diarrhtea Hemedy. They
do not publicly boast of all this
remedy will accomplish, but prefer to
let the users make the statements.
What they do claim, is that it will
