The Man Higher Up
The testimony developed in the
investigations recen'y begun at
Muskogee is nothing if not sensat-
; The effort to implicate the man
“higher up,, (in other words “high-
er than Haman,,) will doubtless
fail as it should because of the re-
luctance of the public to believe in
such depravity at such exalted
heights, and the unreliable hearsay
character of the evidence,
Senator Gore’s testimony of his
own knowledge however corrobora-
ted in part by other witnesses, car.
ries conviction, and doubtless has
a good foundation in fact.
The Committee of investigation
will hold further sessions at Mc-
Allister and Sulphur and additional
may be adduced which may throw
a clearer light upon this unholy
subject; meanwhile the man “high-
er up,’ in the councils of the Nat-
ion may be thoroughly and com-

“Death loves a shining mark”

What is Insurgency?
(Judson C. Welliver in Hampton’-!
It must be kept clearly in mind that
the new insurgency—the insurgen-
cy that has taken on :t present
form and force since lb cccvelt
left the country—is not partisan
It cannot be partisan because there
is no party that fits. it. Just now it
is looked upon too commonly as a
revolt of Republicans against their
party’s leadership. But if you will
go back to the people you will find
(hat it is as much Democratic as re-
publican. Texas, torn by Bailey
and anti-Bailey factionism ; Florida
with Broward and Taliaferro fight-
ing for control ;Tennesee, with par-
ty lines destroyed in the contest
for and against the Patterson mach-
ine—these all tell the story of the
same inspiration and purpose that
have produced Cummins and Dol-
liver in Iowa, Bristow in Kansas,
Foss in Massachusetts, La Follette
in Wisconsin, and Beveridge m Ind-
No’ insurgency is not a party
affair It is a national arousal of
conscience. It is the world-old figM
of the many for an even chance
with the Few. It is the contest of
classes as truly as was the fight for
the Maga Charta ; a contest of the
unprivileged against the prilvilege,
It proves that the world moves.
Insurgency recognizes that polit-
ical feudalism has been cucceedtd
by industrial feudalism. It would
arouse the people to realize this and
to remedy >t. It is optimistic to be-
leive that if the people of Kin g
John’s day could win freedom those
of the Twentieth Century could do
We will understand the real sig-
nigt iinan ;e of the new movement
when we realize that all these in-

themselves, today are flighting for j
the same end : The overthrow of,

Thirty millions of dollars for
450,000 acres of wild lands in East-

very good price as it would net the

do as well by its wards. It is four
times the cost of Alaska and if we
are correct in these propositions the

be fairly earned.
This view of the matter is sug-

per acre or at about 30 to 40 percr.

a great opportunity to read
| /‘DMOND ROSTAND'S wonderful “Chantecler” is the dramalc sen ition of the world. In it Rostand)
p proves himself to be one of the greatest drama-
■* " tists of all times. “Chantecler” is not only the
greatest play of the century,—it is the one great play of the
last hundred years. It is an exquisite story, palpitating
with human sympathy and interest. It warms the blood
—stirs the emotions—arouses every commendable senti-
ment. “ Chantecler" sparkles with satiric wit—counsels
with wise philosophy—entertains with fascinating idiom
—while the tones of the hour bell of today, and today’s
problems, are heard through the medium of "Chante-
cler’s” deliciously up-to-date slang. No language con-
tains sufficient superlatives to describe it. Only reading
and study will enable you to appreciate it. It has aroused
all Prance—London has gone mad over it.
The Only English Translation
Rostand has chosen Hampton's Magazine as the medium
through which to present “Chantecler” to the English-reading
world. The publication will be in four instalments, one act to
each instalment, beginning in the June number. The translator
is the same who helped to make." Cyrano de Bergerac” so fasci-
nating to American booklovers.
We have made special arrangements with the publish-
ers of HAMPTON'S by which our readers may get “Chantecler”
and the many other fine features published in HAMPTON'S

by Charles Edward Russell is one of the greatest magazine
