IT whs n very clever scheme of
the railroads of this country to give
birth to the slogan "bee America
Pirst" because nil over America

The dwiired end is a cx
cellcnt one to gain: but why should
the newspapers do all the work am
the railroads leap all llic rewards
The railronds of this great north
west do not have the same oticn
policy possessed by their brethren
of the cast: nor do the papers here
acting til)on the .selfish precedent o
the raihoads, have any sincere love
for the roads.
When the railronds of the north
west tilirstte the same liberal policy
adopted in all civilized communities
the uewsiiatiers will do more than
their share of urging jwople to "Sec
America Mint." Were it not for
the country press thousands o
localities would fail to be brought
into prominence: and it is to th
wiiue country ptus all railroad
should enter.

HVHN in this democratic country
it is cstimnted that fully five
hundred thousand columns of stuff
have been printed about a mere
wedding. Frankly speaking it is
two-thirds rot and the other third
is maudlin idiocy.
Just as good couples arc married
every day and a dozen lines tell
the story of each. Alice Roosevelt
happened to have a father who is
as truly a ruler of America as this
great country has ever enjoyed
while Nicholas Longworth was
sufficiently lucky to gain her as a
wife. Farther than these two facts
there is nothing about the jierson
ality of either of the couple to make
them better, grander, or greater
than the thousands who are con
tinually entering upon a like part
nership. The American people ton certain
extent delight to gush over any
thing in society circles: and in order
to satisfy this yearning column after
column is written. When one
stops and calmly considers the case
he wonders why so much comment
is made upon a simple marriage.
Why all this balderdash over an
affair which resulted from two
people being stuck 011 each other!
America, as n nation, is getting
tired of grand-stand plays.
A LL the rough houses are not
among oliticiaiis und papers. In
Chicago Sunday a mob drove a
priest from his sanctuary, one man
was killed and many injured, and a
special detail of police had to pro
tect the man. This riot was started
by women.
The same day at St. Paul a
preacher in the African Methodist
church ixiundcd a deacon who de
sired to handle the contribution
plate, theiuiuister was then knocked
galley-west, and a general free-for-all
followed for thirty minutes.
