Stirring Address Delirered by Farnm

Crowd at Chautauqua Grounds
Touches Upon those Influences

the Public Conscience to Fight.
Twenty-one hundred people, It la
conservatively estimated, heard Ex
flavernor Josenh W. Folk's lecture on
"'Era of Conscience," at the Chaut '.u
qua grounds last evening, and of into
number, are Included people of 'our
t(.'iiities, and liberal attendance Iron
all rections of Union county..
As a Bpeaker, the ex-governor im

qualities, it, is no wonder that his ad

tone, struck deep In the. minds of his
The Bpeaker was introduced , by
President T. A. Rinehart of the Chau
tauqua association, who paid compli
ment's to Mr; Folk's political career
in terse sentences. With deafening ap
plause, the Missourlan commenced:
"The government is no worse than
a majority of the people of the nation MERE HANDFUL HAVE REGISTER
suffer It to be," he declared, and in j.D AT THIS TIME.
this earnest sentence lies the keynote
ef hls-address, for through it all he
appealed to patriotism; not of the
sort that takes men and bpya to the
front rank of battle, but that patriot
ism which awakens a sense of right
eousness In the bouIs of men. He con
tinued: ' 1
"There has been a great awaken
ing on the subject of individual re-'
sponsibility for the affairs of city,
state and nation within the last few
years. The public conscience has
been aroused against evils and things
are not tolerated, now that for af few
years ago were submitted . to In si
lence. Will the movement toward
higher Ideals go on? Will not the
people soon forget? Have not the
people already forgotten, and will not
things be allowed to go in the same
old way as they were before t'le
awakening of the .people? These ques
tions are being asked all over the
country today. ,
Reform sometimes die, but revolu
tions never go backward, and a revo
lution has been wrought in the con
science of men. The awakening is
merely a determination to . have the
government of city, state and nation
represent the public interest and not
special privileges. In . the battle
against privilege some ngnis ibubi ue
lost. With each fight lost we should
not lose courage, but fight all the
harder; with each fight won we
should not become apathetic, and
think all has been won. If the issue
could be represented squarely be
tween public rights and special privi
leges everywhere, there would be no
doubt as to the outcome. For the ma
jority of the people here and every
where will do right when they know
right. The representatives of privi
leges are too shrewd to permit a
plain issue between public rights and
special privilege to go before the peo
ple. They adroitly manage to com
plicate the main issue with other
questions bo as to bewilder men of
even the best Intentions. By confus
ing the issue the representatives of
privilege divide the forces In opposi
tion. Those who object to Teform do
not usually put their protest upon the
true ground, but they seek some other
pretext. They ask why is not this or
that done?, If one examines the source
of a complaint like this he will usual
ly find that It Is not because of a de-

Several Hundred Persons 111 from
Bites and Some Seriously.
" Galveston, July 8. Mosqultos have
Invaded Port Arthur and vicinity In
great awarmg today, and 700 persons

Rockefeller's Birthday.
. New York July 8. Business was
transacted as usual today at No. 26

spirit in the air, due to the fact that
this is the seventy-flrBt anniversary

it, but his benevolent influence was
felt to 'such ah extent, it is alleged,
that several office boys were given
half-holidays without the necessity of
sacrificing grandmothers.
Unlawful to Sign Nomination Petl
' tlong Unless Registered. " .
Unusual apathy is evinced ay vot
ers of Union county In not register
ing. Only about' fifty have thus far
compiled with the primary lawa by
designating their party affiliations
and giving voting precincts. When
it is known that it is unlawful to sign
any candidate's position without fli :it
being registered, voters should ' at
tend to this trivial matter. A person
is not a qualified voter until he has
registered and qualified voters alone
are eligible to sign petitions.

The Doctor Sadler company is the
chief attraction at the Chautauqua
grounds today, and like so many pf
the numbers that have preceded them,
they are unusually clever. They come
recommended highly, and before they

is not idle talk. In announcing them

Nineteen . hundred dollars U the

journed last evening after beln In
session two days to transact business
of the June term. Union had asked ihe
court to donate the old building fo the
city of Union for school purposes, but
life court found that It was not rha
court's to give. It belongs to the en
tire county, and to give Union J do
nation for school purposes," Would es
tablish a precedent that. would bring
other cities and towns to the frott,
asking for similar donations, Is the
belief of the court. The court has been
offered $2,000 for the building at Un
ion, but clipped an even ?100 from 1V
quoted price, provided the city of Un
ion would take it. No action has Dei
taken by Union at this time. .

ance came up for consideration by
ihe June term. The court was abla to
transact all routine work In two day

Indianapolis, July 8. There will be
no tall to the comet when , Colonel
RooBevelt flashes across the Indiana
political horizon, pee'chmaMog in be
half or Beveridge. Democratic leaders
have : bean awaiting t this announce
ment for crnne time, apprehensive,
and have been figuring, a scheme to
counteract his influence. It Is prac

Roosevelt Cultivates Grouch.
Oyster Bay,' July 8. Roosevelt has
become annoyed by the manner which
he Is being pushed Into the Insurgent
whirlpool. While no doubt he thinks
the, '.'.water is just fine," the rush of
Insurgents and progressives to Saga
more Hill,: and the ' graphic descrip
tions sent out by all correspondents,
of the smiles when they depart, has
tended to carry him toward the
"ahow-down", point ' faster than ,he
wants to go. He has announced he
would keep out of ' politics for two
months, and thera seems to be no
little doubt but that he, is welded to
the insurgents' cause. ; . .. ; ;
Governor Marshall will champion
Kern. He Is immensely popular with
citizens and Is violently opposed to
many RooBevelt policies. A , warm
time Is expected as Roosevelt la popu
lar and politicians say his exposing
the cause of Beveridge and the insur
gency, will intensify his popularity.
The issue is either that the legisla
ture returns Beveridge or elects r
democratic successor.

nouncement that Roosevelt ' wouM
take the stump to expose Beverldge'a
cause In Indiana.
The proposed ' - endorsement p Jta
Roosevelt more squarely In line with
the Insurgents than any action he
has taken since his return. Regala-s
are hoping that Roosevelt will confine
h!p remarks to aq eulogy of Baver
!de and not touch on the republican
atuu. platform, which Is dlcked by
Beveridge and himself, and ; slapped
the regulars' pet measures,, and prac
tically repudiated the tariff bill and
endorsed the Taft administration oly
conditionally. ,
