One hundred and thirty shoe dealers met in convention in New York City last Thursday and on account of the McKin ler bill decided to increase the price of boots and shoes 25 to 50 per cent Yet the

your telling Harry Torr that its all politics has done our campaign much barm acd your telling Treasurer Woll that you were making the tax levy figures to serve your purposes has in jured the riag cry very much You had better make some defense for Billy Owen or he ia a gone gosling THATS THE QUESTION Whats the UJne of Keeping Up a Ctiii trovfrsy With a Fool Editors the words ot Sol OTIOU Whats the use of keeping uv controversy with a fool You hiive shown from official proofs that countys tax levy ia not ths highest in the state as can readily be seen by finy one examining the lists at the treasurers office whicbycan be done at any time and yet the Journal keeps insisting that it is Yet admitting that it is so what of it if the legitimate and necessary ex penditures of the county are more than other counties and no corruption or job bing is found to exist Nothing of the kind is even charted Even if the 35 per cent was paid for collecting hidden taxes this does not affect the county levy at all for whatever is thus collected is so much gain anyhow nolhiDg would have been collected if uo effort had been made The fact is if anything like a fair val uation of property had been made bj1 the assessor the levy for county and city could be very materially reduced Take the case of the Taner Hamilton water power It ia assessed a 89000 The owners value it at A tract of land on the Southaide is assessed st 800 The owner holds it at Stocks of goods in tbe city are assessed as everybody knows away down below anything like the real value If the rdi of tbe Journal would tura his efforts lo a reform in this mutter and set a good Example and encourage instead of dis courage the collection of tke thousands of dollars of delinquent taxes due the county and if these results could be ac complished the county would be all right financially and its tax levv among the lowest in the state TAXPAYER Words foe IonaIilflOn Sheriff Donaldson is receiving many evidences of good

Copyright by American Press Association NEW YORK Oct of the most wtraordinary things abont the most ex traordinary man William Shakespeare Is that wonderful as his genius la overshadowing as his reputation we know next to nothing of him per j tonally We are even ignorant of the data of his birth but the tradition ia that he was born on the day of the month on which he that it is three hundred and twentysix years since that event It would not be JO strange if the poet had failed of ap preciation daring his life and his great ness had been discovered by posterity But he was regarded as tta first drama tist of his own time not by critics alone who are generally above their contempo raries but by the people who flocked to see and enjoy his plays Not until nearly a century after his death was there any regular collection or editing of his tvorks but since then he has been edited corrected and inter preted as no other mortal has ever been That there has been anything intelligi ble left of Mm is the best ovidence of his marvelous power and significance Despite almost two hundred years of in cessant investigation of everything even remotely connected with him the mys tery of Shakespeare the man is not a whit abated Not a line of his manu script is extant beyond four of his signa tures all of which are eacredly preserved in London and which will be remem bered by most Americana of culture and travel Even tho spelling of Ms name is in blind signature does not remove he himself as well aa hii friend Ben Jonson appears to have writ ten it Shakespeare when they printed it In Ms day men wrote their names vari ously He sometimes wrote his Shakspere and his contemporaries spelled it in a dozen different ways What claim to be portraits of him are familiar to everybody but the bulk of i these are copies of tho Chandos picture i which has no relation to the original The only representations that can lay claim to authenticity ars the well known bust at Stratford and the Droeshont en graving They are both very hard and stiff not answering at all to our ideal of the poet bnt they havea striking sim ilitude which justifies their claim They who have studied Shakespeare have a feeling and a half belief that he was singularly handsome and distinguished If we could see him as he was in the flesh we should doubtless find that lie looked very unlike the man ought to look who had created Hamlet Othello Lear Eminent characters very seldom bear the appearance we ascribe to them Alcibiades Aspasia Julius Caesar Cleo patra must have been very different in form and feature from what we fancy them The facts of Shakespeares life are poor and he was born at Stratford married at 18 for urgent reasons Anne Hathaway eight years his senior had three children one sou and two daugh ters that he went to London to better his fortunes became an actor and a dramatist succeeded returned to his native place died in a few years and waa buried there What a meager rec ord this for the mighty master whose name is immortal whose fame beyond that of all others fills every part of civili zationl As we detect almost nothing of his personality in his this he was supremely he man aged to hide his personality from the world He must have considered life a drama He certainly treated it object ively All the indications are that he bad no concern for bis plays after they had served him in the theatre There is every reason to believe that he had no band in their publication that they often appeared without his consent even with out Ms knowledge Vet he does not ap pear to have been wholly indifferent to tame for he seems to have looked after the printing of Venus and Adonis and Lucrece as well as his sonnets Remarkable as these are or would be were they by anybody else they are cheap and commonplace compared with his matchless dramas This strange apparent want of dis crimination of literary judgment has been accounted for by bis editora and commentators on ground that during the Sixteenth and early in the Seven teenth century plays and players were held in no esteem while poems proper were very differently regarded But this fact hardly explains so incompre hensible neglect Notwithstanding all that has been said to the contrary genius is and must be self recognizing and why should the greatest genius of all time fail to appreciate work that had never been equaled The question is hard to answer The necessary infer ence is that be waa either consciously capable or believed himself cspable of so much higher achievements that what he had achieved seemed of small conse quence And this theory gives us a more exalted idea of his genius than do the imperishable monuments he has left us It makes the mind giddy to contemplate the possibilities of bis performance if he felt that he could afford to forego the prodigious deathless reputation which bis dramas must certainly secure him All that is known of Shakespeares method of composition sustains this view He seems to have been spontaneity itself dashing off his marvelous lines at white heat of inspiration which melted thought imagination lesirning and ob servation into a stream of vifail pictur esque pregnant enduring language such side add considerationf 250 00 as never before flowed from tinman pen Thomas C Bradford guardian to fja Tar7o t Tiniro Frank J Diehl tno

him Labor at his secret as you may you shall never master it or even approach it Among the countless host of poets there is but one Shakespeare He shines like the sun and is the center which gives light to others about which revolve Any schoolboy may point out his blemishes the sun has its spots but still it is the sun Unlike most great authors unliko Homer or Dante or Moliere ho is not simple His stylo is a rich mosaic made upof precious stones and rare fragments gathered from every land and age and arranged with infinite variety by hia own incomprehensible cunning He is the intellectual wizard of the world the magician of thought the sovereign en chanter of erpression The fact that Shakespeare has taken almost all his plots from the sources whence he got his plays has induced many to believe him deficient in con structive imagination But this is an unfair inference He was evidently dis inclined to form a plot when he could find one ready made just fia he fre quently adopted the exact phraseology of other authors rather than frame his own lines from his limitless equipment Ho did not care to take any needless trouble he was again let it be said thoroughly and continually practical in spite of his unreckoned wealth of poetry To put it plainly he was bent on mak ing money at tho Blackfriars theatre and on making it in the easiest way He felt more concern for direct pecun iary success than for any reputation which his writings might yield Had he required plots there is small doubt that he could and would have drawn them in abundance from his Inward sup ply But his transcendent excellence is In his creation of and clowns philosophers and simpletons dreamers and men of action women devilish and angelic courtiers and fai ries priests anil cynics wits witches beings of earth and numberless crew but all individual distinct defi nite as if evolved from nature No other poet has revealed a tithe of his omnipotence in tins respect and he has made every one of them memorable and unforgetnble Thousands of years hence Hamlet Timon Benedick Portia Shy loclr Desdemona Brutus Cleopatra Othello Lear Cordelia Macbeth Rosa lind Falstaff Imogen Cossius Viola Dogberry Creasida will ba as fresh and human as they are today as they when the ink was not yet dry that gave them birth One might almost sy tbat if this planet should be lost types of ita inhabitants might be reproduced from Shakespeares models They are more human than humanity and yet moro ideal than our ideas of them The controversy still goes on over question whether the dramatist was a man of much or little culture He ap pears to have known nil that was worth knowing from books and observation and imagination and above anght else Jrom the clairvoyance of universal gen ius Is nature educated sounds much like the queries concerning Shakespeares degree of culture It is not strange thut the obscuration of his personality should incite specula tors to the denial of his identity to the affirmation that he was only a name that his plays were written by another or by t others This view instead of lessening merely augments the mys tery understand how the mas ter dramatist might hide his private self from the world but that Shakeepjars onld be somebody else passes credencu The poet of poets is so sinewy so uni versal so ideal so inashaustiMe to pat nil who understand him into closest relation with him and make them think that they have got at the secret of his power and influence He U not a whit classic lie is romantic Teutonic Gothic above and free from all rule despising convention challenging precedent To the Latin minJ be makes no genera ap peal he belongs especially to the Ten tonic family and is the rarest heritage of i the English speaking race we Americans I appreciating Viim far more in the mass than our British kinsmen The Germans i feel that he is especially related to them j that his genins is their property though j he chanced to be born on foreign soiL They never tire of writing abont him j they are veritable Shakespeariacs They I are convinced that they have interpreted j him to us thit his inmost spirit is open j to them alone Although transcendental and overdrawn they have brought limit fess learning anl I agonulty to ms elucida tion and the world of serious thought eternally indebted to them He antici pated the America of today and in deed more American than English In combining the highest idealism and the greatest practicability In this country we are in a way brought up ou him and our love of Mm grovrB with our years First and last tie is a poet but common sense forms hia base He Is truly English in mak ing his dramajs wholly subservient to earning money He wrote Lear Ham let Henry IV Othello not from passion for
