A judge in Washington decides that
tho' law against "bucket shopping" is
unconstitutional because it "deprives
citizens of the liberty of contract.'
The decision should afford much en
couragement to lotteries and other
forms of the struggling young gamb
ling industry. Kansas City Times.
In all the forms of vegetable life
there is none more beautiful enduring
or magnificent than the tree. Begin
ning with the germination of a tiny
seed it grows from the small insigni-
Meant plant to a splendid tree the
giant of the forest or mountain side
and will live many centuries. Trees
of .various kinds have character and
are distinguished from their fellows
by a difference iu trunk branch and
foliage. The profligacy of nature is
perhaps Ho where so exemplified as in
the natural seed production' and pro
pagation of trees. The tree seeds are
sown by the hand of nature "beside
nil waters." The .millions - of seeds
produced in a single season are car
ried by the winds to the end of the
earth. If one in a thousand grows
and finds a permanent rooting nature
is abundantly satisfied with the waste
of all the rest. Then again who does
not love a tree. It ia said the great
Gladstone wept when a huge oak in
. . - . . -
ins grounas was 80 wrecked oy a
storm that it had to be chopped away.
The trees of childhood how we re-
member their rugged forms hoary
with age. How we climbed into their
very tops or took shelter from the
summer sun under their friendly
branches. Yet there are men and
women who never planted nor protect-
ed a tree in their lives where in many
instances they could leave to posterity
no more enduring mounment. Other
men have a trail of trees marking
evry spot where they ever lived like
Abraham left a long line of altars
marking his journeylngs from place
to place he knew not where.
Governor Wilson of New Jersey has
once more heightened his prestige as
a practical politician by another
smashing victory over the state ma-
chine of his own party. In his cam-
paign for election Dr. Wilson made
a crucial Issue of his faith in the di-
rect primary and it ia wt'H remember-
ed bow after his inauguration he com-
pelled the legislators of tho dtate in
electing a federal senator to reject
James Smith Jr. the candidate of the
machine and elect Mr. Martine the
choice of the primary. Having thus
disposed of Mr. Smith who in times
past has been an invincible boss Gov-
ernor Wilson undertook to secure a
thoroughgoing amendment of the New
Jersey primary law along lines that
are now commonly' designated as pro-
gressive politics. A bill embodying
the governor's views was introduced
into the New Jersey house by a mem-
ber named Geran. The chairman of
the democratic state committee James
Nugent found the biH entirely too
stringent to suit bis notion of party
control and he sought to displace it
with a milder measure. Governor Wil-
son accepted without hesitation the
gauntlet thus thrown down and de-
clared tb'nt the Geran bill should go
through the bouse unamended Mr
Nugent declared It should not. The
clash that followed was fierce and bit-
ter but the governor's will prevailed.
With the crushing defeat of Nugent
following ho close on that of Smith
Dr. Wilson's political supremacy in
the state becomes absolute. His jic-
cess cannot fail to commend Mm to
men conscious of the Importance of
practical political sagacity in a reform
