Holds Up the Eatlre Government In

Trying; Maintain the UaeleN
Commerre Court
Washington, Aug. 22. Within an

hour after President Taft sent back
the legislative, executive and judicial
appropriation bill to Congress yester yesterday,
day, yesterday, with his veto upon It for the sec second
ond second time, the House had by more than
the necessary two-thirds majority

passed it over his veto. The vote was

156 to 53.

The bill was immediately sent on to

the Senate for action. It U hardly be believed
lieved believed the Senate will be able to dupli duplicate
cate duplicate the action of the House and thus

make the bill Into a law without the

consent of the president.

The pres'dent gave as his explana

tion of the veto the fact that the bill

carried with It the amendment abol

ishing the commerce court- This
amendment and another Which limited
the tenure of employe under the civil

servi?? aet. caused Mr. Taft to veto the

bill the first time It was ssnt to him.

The bill he vetoed yesterday did not
carry the amendment regarding the
elYH service.

As the legislative, executive and

judiciary appropriation measure must

be passed in order to provide funds

for the operation of the various de departments
partments departments of the government, it seems

certain that the two nouses of Con Con-gfess

The first time we ever heard of Tom
Watson, he was a rip-roaring populist,
a bolter from the democratic party,
and a side partner of Gen. James B.
Weaver and Mary Ellen Lease. That
was In 1892. Since then, he has made
periodic and spasmodic Irruptions Into
the political arena, but has never car-
d away any prizes. He abuses the
Catholics for their confessional, which
In the nature of things he can't know
anything about, and abuses the Prot Protestants,
estants, Protestants, for their system of foreign
missions, which they can't help know knowing
ing knowing more about than he does. Some
people are useful because they are able
to build up, and some very few are
useful because they can tear down, but
about all the effect that Tom Watson
had had In political, economic and re religious
ligious religious structures has been to smash a
few of the windows. He has made a
good deal of noise and caused some in inconvenience

Not long ago, the civic authorities of
Schenectady appointed Miss Hlene Kel Keller
ler Keller a member of the local board of
public welfare. Behind this simple
statement is a miracle of human
achievement almost without parallel,
for, as most people know, Miss Keller
is deaf, dumb, and blind. In the face
of this well-nigh insuperable handi
cap she has been brilliantly educated;
she has become a force for progress in
society; and now a full-fledged city,
recognizing her talents, makes her one
of its advisers.
Miss Keller's career is just one more
example of what will-power can
achieve. Doomed to spend her life in
darkness and silence, and having only
her marvelous sense of touch to lead
her to Intelligence and learning, she
has triumphed and become useful to
her generation. There has been noth nothing
ing nothing spectacular or sensational in her
experience. It has been a question of
work, character and determination.
Here, then, is an inspiration for all
the world, and particularly for that
part of it which is dissatisfied with the
scheme of things, and which believes
that through circumstance, infirmity,
or some other reason it is not fairly
equipped for the great struggle. Miss
Keller began with crushing afflictions,
yet she has risen supremely over them.

Secretary Muncasrer gave a report
of the recent meeting of the State
Chamber of Commerce at Kissimmee.
on which occasion he secured the next
meeting for Ocala. He was listened to
with close attention and his good work
highly praised. Mr. Muncaster has
made some more improvements in the
Board of Trade headquarters. It now
has a neat and comfortable office, not
only suitable for meetings of the board,
but calculated to give visitors a good
impression of our city. There are often
people here from other cities, who by
reason of the customs of the home lo localities
calities localities seek the board of trade head headquarters
quarters headquarters in every strange town as a
bureau of information. The Star
thinks it would be a good idea for the
Ocala board to give its headquarters
here a good supply of maps and all
other suitable information regarding
not only this section, but the whole
state. The city papers should be kept
on file there, and the Star will be glad
to furnish copies of its daily and week weekly
ly weekly editions for that purpose.

new board are and how they have de decided

that it is to everyone's advantage to

Avery, you're the very biggest sort of
goose. What In the world Is the use
of It? If the money's spent. It's spent."
"But It helps, to know how It was
spent," Mrs. Avery replied. She had
said It a hundred tinus before, for
Anna's whimsical earnestness always
roused her to defense.
"I don't see how," her sister retort retorted,

ways always remember, anyway. I wanted you
to go down to the chrysanthemum

Mrs. Avery sat idle for a moment.

parting departing skirts in her ears, the work
did seem foolish. Then, with a reso resolute
lute resolute sigh, she turned again to her task.
She had tried Anna's way, and she
had always run several dollars over

for her but this.
Three days later Anna appeared

"Jenny's left me," she began.
"Jenny left you! Why, I thought she

"So she was until I lost $5. I want wanted

anything but sweet as a word. The

what these young girls and boys did.

school girl style, and the boys "took
the cake" by carrying with them In
their pistol pockets a plug of Tooth Toothpick

wound around their necks. Eric Mills

The Wall Across the Way.
It "was dark when Rose reached
home. She had walked rapidly, me
chanically taking familiar turns, crest cresting
ing cresting the long slope of the hill at a
panting speed, rounding corners where
gushes of light revealed her as a dark,
flitting figure hurrying by almost at
a run.
She was as oblivious to her sur
roundings as Berny, left motionless on
the park bench. Never before in her
life had anything like this touched her.
Such few troubles as she had known
had been those of a sheltered domes
tic life the life of a cherished child
whose dainty self-respect had never
been blurred by a coarse breath. Now
had come this horrible revelation. It
shook the pretty world she had lived
in like an earthquake. Idols lay
broken In the dust. She had often
seen her father rough and brutal as
he was to Gene, but that was a dif
ferent thing to her father's buyingJ
that wretched woman's husband, buy
ing him for her. Berny's face rose up
on the darkness with its pitiful assump
tion of Jaunty bravado. Its mean
shrewishness under the coating of
powder and rouge.
"How could they do It?" the girl
panted to herself. "How could they
ever do such a thing?"
She did not suspect Dominick. She
could not have believed he was party
to such an action unless he had told
her so with his own lips. As she hur hurried
ried hurried on the thought that this was the
woman he had bound himself to for
tho rest of his life mingled with
the other more poignantly-hateful
thoughts, with a last sickening sense
of wretchedness. The sudden, aghast
consciousness of chaos, of an abrupt
demolishing of the pleasant, familiar
settings of a life that never comes to
some, came to Rose that evening as
she ran home through the fog.
She entered the house noiselessly
and sped up to her room. It was time
to dress for dinner, and an old woman-servant
who had once been her
nurse was waiting to help her. The
mistress and maid were on terms of
affectionate Intimacy and the progress
of the toilet was generally enlivened
by gossip and laughter. Tonight the
girl was singularly silent, responding
with monosyllables and sometimes not
at all to the remarks of her assistant.
As the woman drew the fastenings of
the dress together, she could feel that
the body the gown clipped so closely
quivered, like the casing of machinery,
vibrating to powerful concussions
The silence that continued to hold
her throughout dinner passed unno unnoticed,
ticed, unnoticed, as Gene was there and enlivened
the passage of the meal by contrib contributing
uting contributing an almost unbroken stream of
talk. The night'before he had been to
a play, the plot of which, and its de development
velopment development In four acts, he now related
with a fullness of detail which testi testified
fied testified to the closeness of his attention
and the accuracy of his memory. As
each course was removed from the
table, and the young man could once
more give his undivided attention to
the matter of discourse, he leaned
back In his chair and took up the
dropped thread with a fresh zest and
some such remarks as:
"In the beginning of the next act,
the hero comes in with his hat on,
and first he says" and so on.
With each of these renewals of the
narrative the Bonanza King subsided
against his chair-back In a limp atti
tude, staring with gloomy fixity at his
boy, and expelling his breath in a long
audible rush of air, which was some
times a sigh and sometimes ap
proached the proportions of a groan
At the end. of dinner, when Gene
announced his Intention of leaving as
he was to attend a vaudeville perform
a nee, the old man began to show signs
of reviving animation, going so far as
politely to ask his son where he was
going and with whom. His manner
was marked by a warm, hearty encour
agement, as he said:
"Get the whole vaudeville program
down by heart, Gene, and you can tell
It to us tomorrow night. There'll be
about twelve parts to it, and Rose can
order two extra courses for dinner,
and we might hire some men with
stringed instruments for an accom accompaniment."

sponded responded gaily:
"All right, father. Ill give it my best
attention, and if there's anything es especially
pecially especially good, I'll report to you. You
and Rose might like to go some night."
His father, disappointed that his
shaft had mad9 no Impression upon
the young man's invulnerable ami amiability,
ability, amiability, emitted a scornful snort, and
made no further response to Gene's
cheery "Good night."
"There," he said, in tones express expressing
ing expressing his relief, as the portiere dropped
behind his son's departing figure, "he's
gone! Now, Rosey, you and I can
have a talk."
"Yes," said his daughter, looking at
her coffee-cup, "that's what I wanted.
I want to have a long talk with you
tcnight, papa."
"Fire away," said the old man. "I've
had to listen to that fool for an hour,
and it's broken my spirit. You can
say anything you like."
"Not here," said his daughter; "in
the sitting-room. I'll go in there and
wait for you."
"Why not here? What's the matter
with here? I like it better than the
sitting-room. I'm more comfortable."
"No, the servants will want to clear
the things away, and I don't want
them to hear what I say."
"Tell the servants to go to hell,"
said the old man, who, relieved by

Gene's departure, was becoming more

No, this Is something something
serious. Ill go Into the sitting-room
and wait for you. When you've fin finished
ished finished your coffee, come In."
She rose from her chair and walked
to the door. He noticed that she was
unusually unsmiling and It occurred
to him that she had been so all
through dinner.
"What is it, honey," he said, extend
ing his hand toward her, "short on
your allowance?"
"Oh, no, It's just just something."
she said, lifting the portiere. "Come
when you're ready, I'll be there."
She walked up the hall to the sitting-room
and there sat down in a low
chair before the chimney-piece. The
chill of the fog had penetrated the
house and a fire had been kindled In
the grate. On its quivering fluctuation
of flame she fixed her eyes. With her
hands pressed between her knees she
sat immovable, thinking of what she
was going to say, and so nervous that
the blood sang In her ears and the
palms of her hands, clasped tight to together,
gether, together, were damp. She had never in
her life shrunk so before an allotted
task. It sickened her and she was de determined
termined determined to do it, to thresh it out to
the end. When she heard her father's
step in the passage her heart began
to beat like a woman's waiting for her
lover. She straightened herself and
drew an inspiration from the bottom
of her lungs to try to give herself
breath wherewith to speak.
The old man flung himself into an
arm-chair at one side of the fireplace,
jerked a small table to his elbow,
reached creaklngly for an ash tray,
and.-having made himself comfortable,
took his cigar from his mouth and
"Well, let's hear about this serious
matter that's making you look like a
tragedy queen."
"It is serious," she said slowly. "It's
something that you won't like to hear
"Hit me with it," he said, wonder wondering
ing wondering a little what it could be. "Gene's
gone and a child could eat out of my
hand now."
Looking Into the fire, Rose said:
"I was out walking this afternoon
and down in the Union Street plaza a
woman stopped me. I'd never seen
her before. She was Mrs. Dominick
The old man's face became a study.
A certain whimsical tenderness that
was generally in it when he spoke to
his daughter vanished as if by magic.
It was as if a light had gone out. He
continued to look at her with some something
thing something of blankness in his countenance,
as if, for the first moment of shock,
every faculty was held in suspense,
waiting for the next words. He held
his cigar, nipped between a pair of
stumpy fingers, out away -from him
