HOW TUB PRESIDENT LEADS.
When the fight of the Insurgent
' wing of the Republican part)
broke out Speaker Cannon and
Senator Aldricb, who domiuate
the House and Senate respectively,
succeeded in controlling President
Taft to the extent of having evcrj
item of patronage cut off from tht
No Insurgent Senator, of whour
there were n, and no Insurgent
Representative, of whom there
wete about 45, could secure the ap
pointment of n cross-roads post'
During the last few weeks the
people have had a say in this mat
ter. They have had a shot at Sen
ator Burrows of Michigan and
Senator Hale of Maine; two notori
ous standpat Republicans and bittei
enemies of the Insurgents. The
voters have endorsed overwhelm
ingly LaFollette of Wisconsin, the
leading Insurgent of them all, and
Poindexter of Washington, scarce
ly less radical.
Now after the president has cut
off patronage from the Insurgents
for more than a year, he comes out
and announces that hereafter In
surgents shall have all of the
pie that can be found and that no
discrimination will hereafter be
made against them.
President Taft reminds us of a
certain perfervid French orator
who was addressing a mob that
suddenly ran away from him. He
followed, crying: "When they run
go, too, for I am their
(. County Snperintendent Ford
calls attention to an error in last
week's Bulletin, wherein it was
stated that school district divisions
were made without notice to the
old districts. He says he always
requires legal notice to be given in
all districts affected, old and new
Injustice to Professor Ford and the
other members of the Boundary
Board this correction is cheerfully
made. The statement complained
of was based on the practice that
prevailed prior to the present admin
istration. Old districts did not then
have notice when part of the terri
tory was to be taken for a new dis
trict. A particular instance is that
of taking the Laidlaw district from
the Bend district. The Statute is
a little ambiguous a nil (he former
Snperintendent took- the ground
that notice to the old district was
not required. Tbat this practice had
been chanpert had not previously
come to the notice of The Bulletin.
It is certainly in line with rational
improvement of the public service.
Why do so many disinterested
people manifest so much concern,
activity and ingenuity to defeat en
forcement of the law? Is this an
evidence of good citizenship? Is
the law a hideous monster which
must be crushed at all hazards?
Or is it hideous only to some
people? And, if so, why?
Might it not be well to have the
City Council meetings held In a
room which can better accommodate
the growing audianct? Last night
22 persons were in the Recorder's
office and it seemed a wee bit

A GREAT BATTLE.
The On Known In HUtory a the
"Victory of Vletoris.M
The battle which Is known In his
tory as the "Victory of Victories" took
place at Kebavend, In Ecbatana, and
was fought between tho new Moslem
power to U3T and tbe empire of Per
sia, then ono of the most powerful of
tho eastern monarchies. It was oue of
tho most absolutely decisive battles In
the history of war, and It was all tho
more amazing by reason of tho fact
tbat It was won by n peoplo who
twenty years before had been un
known barbarians, lost In tb deserts
Arabian historians place tbe Persian
loss In a single day at 100,000 men
killed. This may be and probably Is
an exaggeration, but tho fact remains
that tho Persian dynasty came to an
end when the battle was over and tbat
Zoroastrlanlsw. which had been the re
ligion of Persia for over a thousand
years, was at once supplanted by Is
lam. Its modern representatives, as la
welt known, am now tbe Parsecs of
Tho victory was so absolutely de
cisive that it extended the Arabian do
minions over tho whole of the region
tying between tbe Caiplan sea and tbe
Indian ocean. With ttn exception per
baps.of the battle of Tours, no single
fight erer made such a difference In
the after history of tho world.
