THOSE REPUBLICAN DOLLARS.
The National Republican Congressional
Committee has called for a dollar
a head, from the republicans of the
country, wherewith to carry on the im
portant campaign for the maintenance
of congressional supremacy. In the light
of the magnificent work done at the
last session, by that party, the cost weri
a bagatelle if the men and the work
shall be perpetuated, and every partizan
in the nation actually subscribe to the
fund. There is no cost too great that
secures a manifest advantage to the
whole people such as must accrue from
the continuance of the present good in
fluences radiating from the party cen
ters, and no member of the great orga
nization will begrudge the paltry dol
lar that "make good." It is only nec
essary now that the head go with the
dollar; the brain to back the coin on its
way to success; the heart to Btand for
the tasks and do them, as they were
done a few months ago. The democracy
Is straining every point it possesses to
defeat the dominant party, knowing
that unless it does, it is doomed to
extinction in the ensuing few years;
they will leave nothing undone to rout
the republicans from their stronghold
in the public confidence, and will light
as only men fight for a forlorn hope.
The utter strength and prestige of the
republican party, in numbers, wealth,
influence, purpose, must be brought to
bear in all its fine significance and po
tency, to hold the ground it has
achieved, against the re-united demo
cracy, and its allies. The fight is to
be the greatest in many years and there
mut be no bad generalship at any point
of the wide campaign. One dollar, or
ten dollars, whatever is essential, must
be given. But, beyond the dollar, lies
the vital requisite of a popular platform
whereon the strongest, cleanest, best
men of the country shall stand for the
good of the nation. The republicans must
go back to the country offering nothing
less than they have given; there can be
So lapsing from the high ground they now
occupy; no cheap make-shifts in men
nor measures; the work ahead is rich
in superb records if the party is alive
to the opportunity, and the country ex
pects much from those that have done
. CRAZY IN SPITE OF HIMSELF.
The other day an absurd story was
going the rounds of the press of a man
Who, under the impression that he had
committed a capital offense against the
laws, was insisting, by every cunning
process that brain and money could de
vise, to invoke a sentence to, and incar
ceration in, the penitentiary.' And now,
after the most con vicing declarations a
to his own sanity, Harry Thaw is to be
declared insane by his attorneys in be
half of his acquittal of the crime of
murder already self-confessed. This is a
funny old world. Its a wild medley of
things one can't get, and things one
don't want being thrust upon one!

V are permitted to give out the
simple statement that the American
Syndicate, just empowered by the Km
pcror of Russia, to broach the work of
the great Trans Siberia-Alaska Railway,
will use thi city as it first Pacific Coat
terminal for a series of years, until it
shall determiue the expediency of pro
ceeding further. Details will be re
leased early in the fall. We regtvt the
baffling uncertainty of thi report; but
the interests involved are so large that
the utmot caution is necessary, and wo
refrain only in deference to the safe
guarding of s'ecrets not our own.

While it neither adds to man' or
woman' looks or comfort to lie bald
headed, people so afflicted may be com
forted by the statement just made by a
high medical authority that baldness is
more, common among intellectual per
sons than among any others. It is of fre
quent occurrence among all who are
subject to intense mental strain and it
may occur comparatively early. With
the increase of civilization baldness ha
become more and more common and one
scientist goes so far as to say that
since woman has developed broader and
deeper intellectual and interests she has
lost much of the strength and wealth of
her "crowning glory." Baldness has be
come progressively more frequent in
women in the last century or more.
