Infancy lives in the pre~-ent. It lias,

Very soon the growing child begins
to live in the shadow and sunshine of
the future. It is a mistake to suppose
that childhood is a halcyon period and
of every life the happiest part.
George Elliott, who thoroughly
studied and understood child life,
once said:
"Every year strips us of at least one
vain expectation, and teaches us to
reckon some solid good in its stead. I
never will believe that our youngest
days are our happiest. What a mki-
erable augury for the progress of the
race and the destination of the indi-
vidual If the more matured and en-
lightened state is the less happy one.
Childhood is only the beautiful and
happy time in contemplation aud
retropect; to the child it is full of
deep sorrows, the meaning of which is
Children share the good as well as
the evil fortunes of their elders, and
when families are in easy eircum-
stances the children are often more na
peril from the exzesive liboralityof
unwite love than from neglect or the
cruelty of poverty.
It tIona of the mot fruitful sources
of the world's emnsantly rcrring
tragedies that lif may be ruined at
its beginning as well as at its ending:
-Tbe dew drop *a te baby plaat

Childhood is pecullady susceptible
to the influence of forboding and
terror; it has Its anxieties, its cares
and its sorrows, but it has the buoy-
ant, expectancy of hope.
In this country-providing he does
not live in the south-It is said that
every boy expects to become president
some day. Age, on the contrary,
brings disillusions. The more a man
knows the less he thinks he knows.
The more he does the less he feels that
he accomplishes. The object of ambi-

Sen. Jesse J. Faley.

Ieu. Jesse J. Finley celebrated his
81th year on fionday, .slth instant,
entering upon his 90th year. General
Finley was born November IN, IS1, in
Wilon county, Tennessee. He served
in the Indian war in Florida, having
raised a company in his native state
tA firbt the Seminoles, and retired
from the successful conflict as brevet
major of volunteers. Thoroughly de-
lighted with the climate he moved to
our state and served her continuously
as state senator, circuit court judge,
confederate district judge, representa-
tive in congress and United States sn-
ator, until his retirement from active
life in 1898, on account of infirmity of
old age.
Judge Finley, feeling that his coun-
try needed the service of every active
man, resigned his office as confederate
judge and entered the southern army
as a private. He became captain of
his company, then colonel of the Sixth
Florida regiment, and was finally com-
missioned brigadier.general.
His life has been one of service to
public trust and he is loved by all who
know him. The closing years of his
life are being spent with his son, ('apt.
Charles A. Finley, and family.
The writer called on General Fiuley
this week and found him enjoying
perfect health, though on account of
his age, is confined to the premises.
His intellect is bright and the old
school courtesy sad geniality still ad-
heres to him. May he live to see many
more birthdays, surrounded by loving
children and grand-ehildren.-Lake

Anareby and Anarchists.
The anarchist, and especially the anarch-
ist in the United States. is merely one type
of criminal., nor. dangerous than any
other because he' represents the same de-
pravity in a greater degree. The man who
advocates anarchy directly or Indirectly
in any shapw- or fashion or the man who
apol.ogiz<.s for a';;.rci.ists and their d.t-,sd
makes himself aior.;;ly accessory to mtur-
der before the fa-t. The anarchist is a
criminal whose p'.rv rted instincts haI
him to prefer confusion and chlaos to thl I
most beneficent form of social order. 1 is
protest of concern for workingmen is out-
rageous in its impudent falsity, for if the
political institutions of this country do
not afford opportunity to evry hon-st
and intelligent son of toil then the door of
hope is forever closed against him. The
anarchist is everywhere not merely tht-
enemy of system and of progress, but the
deadly Joe of liberty If ever anarchy is
triumphant. its triumph will last for but
one red moment, to lbe succeeded for ages
by the gloomy night of despotism.
For the anarchist himself, whether hr
preaches or practices his doctrines, we
need not have one particle more concern
than for any ordinary murderer., He is
not the victim of social or political Injus-
tice. There are no wrongs to remedy in
his case. The cause of his criminality i:;
to be found in his own evil passions and
In the evil conduct of those who urge him
on. not in any failure by others or by the
state to do Justice to him or his. He is a
malefactor and nothing else. He is in no
sense. In no shape or way. a "product of
social conditions" save as a highwayman
is "produced" by the fact that an unarm-
ed man happens to have a purse. It Is a
travesty upon the great and holy names
of liberty and freedom to permit them to
be invoked in such a cause. No man or
body of men preaching anarchistic doc-
trines should be allowed at large any i
more than if preaching the murder of
some specified private individual. Anarch-
istic speeches, writings and meetings are
essentially seditious and treasonable.
Should Keep Asareeasts Out.

I earnestly recommend to the congress
that in the exercise of its wise discretion
It should take Into consideration the com-
Ing to this country of anarchists or per-
sons professing principles hostile to all
government and Justifying the murder of
those placed in authority. Such individ-
uals as those wh noit long ago gathered
in open meeting to glorify the murder of
King Humbert of Italy perpetrate a crime.
and the law should insure their rigorous
punishment. They and those like them
should Ie kept out of this country, and if
found here they should be promptly de-
ported to th,' country whence they came.
and farroaching provision should be made
for the punishment of those who stay. No
matt,-r calls more urgently for the wisest
thought of the congress.
Th fheral courts should be given juris-
diction ov.r any man who kills or at-
tempts to kill the president or any man
who by the ,orstitution or by law is in
line f sueession for the presidency.
while the punishment for an unsuccessful
attempt should be proportioned to the
enormity of the offense against our Insti-
Anarchy is a crime against the whole
human race. and all mankind should band
against the anarchist. His crime should
be made an offense agalast the law of na-
tions. like piracy and that form of man
stealing known as the slave trade, for it is
of far blacker infamy than either. It
should be so declared by treaties among
all civilized powers. Such treaties would
give to the federal government the power
of dealing with the crime.
A grim commentary upon the folly of
the anarchist position was afforded by the
attitude of the iaw toward this very crim-
inal who had just taken the life of the

ss energy and mechanical aptitude of
ir people make foreign markets essen-
al. Under such conditions it would be
ost unwise to cramp or to fetter the
Duthful strength of our nation.

The blow was aimed not at this pre4l-
Gsat. but at all president, at every sym-
bel of government. PresMent McKinley
was as emphatically the embodiment of
the popular will of the nation expressed
through the forms of law as a New Sag-
land town meeting to in similar fashion
the embodiment of the law abiding pur-
pese and practice of the people of the
town. On no conceivable theory could the
murder of the president be accepted as
due to protest against. "inequalities in the
social order" save as the murder of all the
freemen engaged in a town meeting could
be accepted as a protest against that so-
clal Inequality which puts a malefactor in
Jail. Anarchy is no more an expression of
"social discontent" than picking pockets
or wife beating.

The growth of cities has gone o beyond
comparison faster than the growth of the
country, sad the uphbuldlug of the great
industrial centers has meant a startling
increase not merely In the aggregate of
wealth, but in the number of very large
todividual and especially of very large
corporate fortunes. The creation of these
great corporate fortunes has not been due
to the tariff nor to any other governmen-
tal action, but to natural causes tIn the
business world, operating In other coun-
tries as they operate In our own.
The process has aroused much antago-
nism, a great part of which is wholly
without warrant. It is not true that as
the rich have grown richer the poor have
grown poorer. On the contrary, never be-
fore has the average man, the wagework-
er, the farmer, the small trader, been so
well off as In thief country and at the pres-
ent time. There have been abuses con-
Tecttd with the accumulation of wealth.
yet it remains true that a fortune accu-
mulated in legitimate business can be ac-
cumulated by the person specially benefit-
ed only on condition of conferring im-
mense incidental benefits upon others.
Successful enterprise of the, type which
benefits. all marl-ind can only exist if the
unditi.ns are such as to offer great prizes
as the rewards of success.
Reasons For Cautlim.
The captains of industry who have driv-
en the railway systems across this conti-
nent. who have built up our commerce.
who have developed our manufactures.
have oa the whole done great good to our
people. Without them the material devel-
opmeut of which we are so justly proud
would never have taken place. Moreover.
we should recognize the Immense impor-
mance to this material development of
saving as unhampered as is compatible
rith the public good the strong and force-
ul men upon whom the success of busi-
iess operations inevitably rests. The
lightest study of business conditions will
atisty any one capable of forming a
judgment that the personal equation is
the most important factor In a business
operation; that the business ability of the
ian at the head of any business concern.
Ig or little, is usually the factor which
ixes the gulf between striking success
nd hopeless failure.
An additional reason for caution in deal-
ig with corporations is to be found in the
international commercial conditions of to-
ny. The same business conditions which
ave produced the great aggregateions of
xrporate a;l individual wealth have
iadc tlaem very potent factors In later-
ational commercial competition. Bud-
ess concerns which have the largest

state commerce should be regulated if
they are found to exercise a license work-
tng to the public Injury. It should be as
much the aim of those who seek for social
betterment to rid the business world of
crimes of conning as to rid the entire
body politic of crime of violence. Great
corporations exist only because they are
created and safeguarded by our institu-
tions. and it is therefore our right and
our duty to see that they work in harmo-
ny with these institutions.
Publicity Needed.
The first essential in determining how to
deal with the great Industrial combina-
tions is knowledge of the facts-publicity.
In the interest of the public the govern-
ment should have the right to inspect and
examine the workings of the great corpo-
rations engaged in Interstate business.
Publicity is the only sure remedy which
we can now invoke. What further reme-
dies are needed in the way of govern-
mental regulation or taxation can only be
determined after publicity has been ob-
tained by process of law and in the course
of administration. The first requisite is
knowledge, full and complete-knowledge
which may be made public to the world.
Artificial bodies. such as corporations
and joint stock or other associations de-
pending upon any statutory law for their
existence or privileges, should be subject
to proper governmental supervision, and
full and accurate information as to their
operations should be made public regular-
ly at reasonable intervals.
The large corporations, commonly called
trusts, though organized in one state, al-
ways do business in many states. often
doing very little business in the state
where they are incorporated. There is
utter lack of uniformity in the state laws
about them. and as no state has any ex-
clusive interest in or power over their
acts it has in practice proved impossible
to get adequate regulation through state
action. Therefore In the interest of the
whole people the nation should, without
interfering with the power of the states
In the matter itself, also assume power of
supervision and regulation over all corpo-
rations doing an interstate busines q. This
Is especially true where the corporation
derives a portion of its wealth from the
existence of some monopolistic element or
tendency in its business. There would be
no hardship in such supervision. Banks
are subject to it and in their case it is
enow accepted as a simple matter of
course. Indeed it is probable that super-
vision of corporations hy the national gov-
emrnent need not go so f ir as is now the
case with the spervisin exercisedl over
them by so conservative t. state as Mas-

Ing questions which we group together
when we speak of "labor." The eh;et
factor in the success of each man-wag. -
worker, farmer and capitalist alike-mus-
ever be the sum total of his own individ-
ual qualities and abilities. S-cond only to
this comes the power of acting in com-
bination or association with others. Very
great good has lwen and will be ac-om-
pUshed by associations or unions of wage-
workers when managed with forethought
and when they combine insistence upon
their own rights with law abiding respect:
for the rights of others. The display of
these qualities in su.'h bodies is a duty
to the nation no l' s than to the associa-
tiems themselves. Finally there must also
la many cases be action by the govern-
ment In order to safeguard the rights and
taterests of alL Un,ier our constitution
bere is much more scope for such action
by the state and the municipality than by
the nation. But on points such as those
touched on above the national govern-
ment can act.
When all is said and done. the rule of
brotherhood remains as the indispensable
prerequisite to success in the kind of na-
tional life for which we strive. Each man
must work for himself, and unless he so
works no outside h',lp can avail him. But
each man must remember also that he is
Indeed his brother's kt.eper. and that while
no man who rtfu'ses to walk can lie car-
ried with advantage to himself or any ono,
else. yet that each at times stumbles or
halts, that each it times needs to have
the helping hand outtstretchtd to him. To
be permanently effective aid must always
take the form of helping a man to help
himself. and we can all best help our-
selves by joining together in the work
that is of common interest to all.

Our present Immigration laws are un-
sattsfactory. We need every honest and
efcient immigrant fitted to become an
American citisen. every immigrant wao
comes here to stay. who brings here a
strong body. a stout heart, a good head
and a resolute purpose to do his duty well
to every way and to bring up his children
as law abiding and God fearing members
of the community. But there should be a
coft.i .hnsive law enacted with the ob-
ject of working a threefold improvement
over our present system. First we should
aim to exclude absolutely not only all per-
sons who are known to be believers in an-
archistic principles or members of anarch-
istic soletdes but also all persons who
are of a low moral tendency or of unsa-
vory reputation. This means that we
should require a more thorough system of
Inspection abroad and a more rigid sys-
tem of examination at our immigration
ports, the former being especially neces-
The second object of a proper immigra-
tion law ought to te t,, secure by a care-
ful and not merely perfunctory education-
al test some Intelligent capacity to appre-
elate American institutions and act sane-
ly as American citisens. This would not
keep out all anarchists, for many of them
belong to the intellige-nt criminal class.
but it would do what is also in point-that
Is. tend to decrease the sum of ignorance
so potent In producing the envy. suspi-
dcon, malignant passion and hatred of or-
der out of which anarchistic sentiment in-
evitably springs. Finally all persons
abould be excluded who are below a cer-
tain standard of economic fitness to enter
our industrial field as competitors with
American laber. There sabould be proper
proof of personal capacity to earn an
American tving and enough money to in-
ure a decent start under American condi-
tiaes. This would stop the Influx of cheap
labor and the resulting competition which
gives rise to so much of bitterness in
American Industrial life. and it would dry
up the springs of the pestilential social
conditions In our great cities where an-
archistic organizations have their great-
est possibility of growth.

There Is general acquisemeo In our
present tariff system as a national policy.
The first requisite to our pruperity is the
continuity and stabiity of this economic
policy. Nothing could be more unwise
than to disturb the business. Interests of
*e country by any general t-.rLf change
at this time. Doubt, apprehension, un-
eertainty. are exactly what we most wish
to avoid In the Interest of our commercial
and material well being. Our experience
In the past has shown that sweeping revl-
ineas of the tariff are apt to produce con-.
dittoms closely approaching panic in ite
business world. Yet it is not only possi-
ble. but eminently desirable, to combine
with the stability of our economic sys-
tem a supplementary system of reciprocal
befit and obligation with other nations.

of the arm establishment and preservation

Reciprocity must be treated as the hand-

I ask the attention cf the, senate t th'-
reciprocity treaties laid before it by my
Merrhant Marine.

The condition of the American merchant
marine is such as to call for immediate
remedial action by the congress. It is dis-
creditable to us as a nation that our
merchant marine should be utterly insig-
nificant in comparison with that of other
nations which we overtop in other forms
of business. We should not longer submit
to conditions under which only a trifling
portion of our great commerce is carried
In our own ships. To remedy this state of
things would not merely serve to build
up our shipping interests, but it would
also result in benefit to all who are inter-
ested in the permanent establishment of a
wider market for American products and
would provide an auxiliary force for the
navy Ships work for their own countries
just as railroads work for their terminal
points. Shipping lines, if established to
the principal countries with which we
have dealings, would be of political as
well as commercial benefit. From every
standpoint it is unwise for the United
States to continue to rely upon the' ships-
of competing nations for the distribution
of our goods. It should he made advan-
tageous to carry American goods in
American built ships.
At present American shipping is under
certain great disadvantages when put in
competition with the shipping of foreign
countries. Many of the fast foreign
steamships, at a speed of fourteen knots
or above, are subsidized, and all our
ships, sailing vessels and steamers alike,
cargo carriers of slow speed and mail
carriers of high speed. have to meet the
fact that the original cost of building
American -ships is greater than is the<
case abroad, that the wages paid Ameri-
can officers and seamen are very much
higher than those paid the officers and
seamen of foreign competing countries
and that the standard of living on our
ships is far superior to the standard of
living on the ships of our commercial ri-
Our government should take such action
as will remedy these Inequalities. The
American merchant marine should be re-
stored to the ocean.
The act of March 14, 1900. intended un-

That law was largely an experiment.
Experience has shown the wisdom of Its
purposes, but has also shown possibly
that some of Its requirements are wrong.
ertainly that the mans devised er the
enforcement of Its pro tslos are defec-
tive. Thoee who complain of the manage-
ment of the railways allege that estab-
liMhed rates ar not malntainsd, that re-
bates and etsimar devices are habitually
resorted to. that these prIftranas are
usually Into favor f the large hipper. that
they drive out of business the smaller
competitor, that while many rates are too
low many others are excessive and that
gross preferences are made affecting both
localities and commodities. Upon the oth-
er hand. the railways assert that the law
by its very terms tends to produce many

of these illegal practices by depriving car-
riers of that right of concerted action
which they claim Is necessary to estab-
lish and maintain nondiscriminating rates.
The act should be amended. The rail-

be just to and open to all shippers alike.

agenci~s. The subject is one of great im-

still greater use in the future than in the
past. Additions should be made to them
whenever practicable, and their useful-
ness should be Increased by a thoroughly
businesslike management.
At present the protection of the forest
reserves rests with the general land office.

her with the United States geological sur-
vey and the preparation of plans for their
conservative use with the burteau of for-
estry. which is also charged with the gen-
eral advancement of practical forestry in
the United States These various func-
tions should he united in the bureau of
forestry, to which they properly belong.
The present diffusion of responsibility is
bad from every standpoint. It prevents
that effective co-operation between the
government and the men who utilize the
resources of the reserves without which
the interests of noth must suffer. The
scientific bureaus generally should be put
under the department of agriculture The
president should have by law the power
of transferring lands for use as forest re-
serves to the department of agriculture.
lie already has such power In the case of
lands needed by the departments of war
and the navy.
The wise administration of the forest
reserves will be not less helpful to the in-
terests which depend on water than to
those which depend on wood and grass
The water supply Itself depends upon the
forest. In the arid region It tI water, not
land. which measures production. The
western half of the United States would
sustain a population greater than that of
our whole country today if the waters
that now run to waste were saved and
used ftr irrigation. The forest and water
problems are perhaps the most vital in-
ternal questions of the United States.
Certain of the forest reserves should
also be made'preserves for the wild forest
creatures. All of the reserves should be
better protected from fires Many of them
need special protection because of the
great Injury done by live stock,. above all
by sheep The increase in deer. elk and
other animals in the Yellowstone park
shows what may be expected when other
mountain forests are properly protected
by law and properly guarded Some of
these areas have been so denuded of sur-
face vegetation by overgrazing that the
ground breeding birds. Including grouse
and quail, and many mammals. including
deer. have been exterminated or driven
away At the same time the water stor-
ing capacity of the surface has been de-
creased or destroyed, thus promoting
floods In times of rain and diminishing the
flow of streams between rains
In cases where natural conditions have
been restored for a few years vegetation
has again carpeted the ground, birds and
deer are coming back. and hundreds of
persons, especially from the immediate
neighborhood, come each summer to en-
joy the privilege of camping Some at
least of the forest reserves should afford
perpetual protection to the native fauna
and flora, safe havens of refuge to our
rapidly diminishing wild animals of the
larger kinds and free camping grounds for

women who have learned to find rest.
health and recreation in the splendid for-
ets and flower clad meadows of our
mountains The forest reserves should be
set apart forever for the use and benefit
of our people as a whole and not sacrificed
to the shortsighted greed of a few.

The forests are natural r.. -..... -
restraining the streams in flood and re-
plenishing them In drought they make
possible the use of waters otherwise
tasted. They prevent the soil from wash-
Ing and so protect the storage reservoirs
from filling up with silt. Forest conserva-
tion is therefore an essential condition of
water conservation
Storaff Works Neeessary.
The forests alone cannot. however, fully
regulate and conserve the waters of the
arid region. Great storage works are nec-
eseary to equalize the flow of streams and
to save the flood waters Their construc-
tion has been conclusively shown to be an
undertaking too vast for private effort.
Nor can It be best accomplished by the In-
dividual states acting alone. Farreaching
interstate problems are Involved, and the
resources of single states would often be
Inadequate. It Is properly a national
function, at least in some of Its features
It is as right for the national government
to make the streams and rivers of the
arid region useful by engineering works
for water storage as to make useful the
rivers and harbors of the humid region by
engineering works of another kind. The
storing of the floods In reservoirs at the
headwaters of our rivers is but an en-
largement of our present policy of river
control under which levees are built on
the lower reaches of the same streams.
The government should construct and
maintain these reservoirs as It does other
public works Where their purpose ts to
regulate the (tow of streams the water
should be turned freely into the channels
In the dry season to take the same course
under the same laws as the natural flow.
The reclamation of the unsettled arid
public lands presents a different problem.
Here it is not enough to regulate the flow
of streams. The object of the government
Is to dispose of the land to settlers who
will build homes upon It. To accomplish
this object water must be brought within
their reach
The pioneer settlers on the arid public
domain chose their homes along streams;
from which they could themselves divert
the water to reclaim their holdings Such
opportunities are practically gone. There
remain, however, vast areas of public
land which can be made available for
homestead settlement, but only by rer-
votrs and main line canals b.h-a.tkahble
Sor private enterprise. These htlaUo
works should be built by the national
government. The lands reclaimed by
them should be reserved by tie govern-
ment for actual settlers, and the eost of
construction should so far as possible
be repaid by the land reclaimed. The
distribution of the water, the division of
the streams among trrigators, should be
left to the settlers themselves to conform-
ity with state laws and without Interfer-
ence with those laws or with vested
rights. The policy of the national gov-
ernment should be to aid Irrigation In the
several states and territories In such man-
nor as will enable the people in the local
Sommunitles to help themselves and as
will stimulate needed reforms In the state
laws and regulations governing Irrigation
Will arilet the Whole Country.
The reclamation and settlement of the
arid lands will enrich every portion of
our country. Just as the settlement of the
Ohio and Mississippi valleys brought
prosperity to the Atlantic states. The
Increased demand for manufactured arti-
cles will stimulate industrial production.
while wider home markets and the trad.

In our statement of the Monroe doctrine
as compatible with the purposes and alms
of the conference.
The Monroe doctrine should be the car-

the nations of the two Americas as It is of
the United States. Just seventy-eight
years have passed since President Mon-
roe in his annual message announced that
*the American continents are henceforth
not to be considered as subjects for future
colonization by any European power." In
other words, the Monroe doctrine Is a dec-
laration that there must be no territorial
aggrandizement by any non-American
power at the expense of any American
power on American soil. It is In nowise
intended as hostile to any nation in the
old world. Still leas is it intended to give
cover to any aggression by one new world
power at the expense of any other. It is
simply a step. and a long step, toward as-
saring the universal peace of the world by
securing the possibility of permanent
peace on this hemisphere.
During the past century other influences
have established the permanence and In-
ipendence of the smaller states o- Eu-
repe. Through the Monroe doctrine we
hepe to be able to safeguard like inde-
pendeace and secure like permanence for
the lesser amo the new world nations.
This doctrine has nothing to do with the
eemmercial relations of any American
power save theit it truth aDows each of
them to form such as it desires. In other
words, it tos rally a guarantee of the com-
mercial Independence of the Americas.
We do not ask under this doctrine for any
ezdlusive commercial dealings with any
other American state. We do not guaran-
tee any state against punishment If it
misconducts Itself provided that punish-
ment does not take the form of the acqui-
sition of territory by any non-American
Our attitude In Cuba is a sufficient guar-
antee of our own good faith. We have
not the slightest desire to secure any ter-
ritory at the expense of any of our neigh-
bors. We wish to work with them hand
in hand. so that all of us may be uplifted
together, and we rejoice over the good
fortune of any of them. we gladly hail
their material prosperity and political sta-
bility and are concerned and alarmed if
any of them fall into Industrial or political
chaos. We do not wish to see any oldi
world military power grow up on this
con tilreit or to be compelled to become a
military power ourselves. The peoples or
the Americas can prosper best if left to
work out their own salvation in their own

each day. When thistis not attended

The Navy.

The work of upbuilding *he navy must
be steadily continued. No one point of
our policy, foreign or domestic, Is more
Important than this to the honor and ma-
terial welfare and. above all. to the peace
of our nation in the future. Whether w>-
desire it or not we must henceforth re:og-
risze that we have International duties no
less than international rights. Even If
our Hag were hauled down in the Philip-
pines and Porto Rico. even If we decided
not to build the isthmian canal, we should
need a thoroughly trained navy of ade-
quate size or else be prepared definitely
and for all time to abandon the idea that
our nation is among those whose sons go
down to the sea in ships. Unless our com-
merce Is always to be carried in foreign
bottoms we must have war craft to pro-
tect itL
Inasmuch. however, as the American
people have no thought of abandoning the
path upon which they have entered, and
especially in view of the fact that the
h tilding of the isthmian canal to fast
Ie.-coming one of the matters which the
wi :te people are united In demanding, it
is Jimperative that our navy should be put
and kept in the highest state of efficiency
and should be made to answer to our
growing need.i. So far from being ln any
way a provocation to war. an adequate
and highly trained navy to the best
guarantee against war. the cheapest and
most effective peace insurance. The cost
of building and maintaining such a navy
represents the very lightest premium for
insuring peace which this nation can pos-
sibly pay.
Probably no other great nation in the
world is so anxious for peace as we are.
There is not a single civilized power
which has anything whatever to fCer
from aggressiveness on our part. All we
want is peace, and toward this end we
wish to be able to secure the same re-
spect for our rights from others which
we are eager and anxious to extend to
their rights in return, to Insure fair treat-
alent to us commercially and to guaran-
tee the safety of the American people.
Our people Intend to abide by the Mon-
roe doctrine and to insist upon It as the
one sure means of securing the peace of
the western hemisphere. The navy offers
us the only means of making our Insist-
ence upon the Monroe doctrine anything
but a subject of derision to whatever na-
tion chooses to disregard it. We desire
the peace which comes as 3f right to the
just man armed; not the peace granted on

WeouMd Create a General Staff.
A general staff should be erected. As
for the present staff and supply depart-
ments, they sald be filled by detail
from the line, the men so detailed return-
ing after awhile to their line duties. It is
very undesirable to have the eailor grades
of the army composed of men who have
come to il the poselttions by the mere tact
of seniority. A system should be adopted
by which twher shall be an elimination
grade by grade of those who seem unfit
to render the best service in the next
grade. Justice to the veterans of the
civil war who are still in the army would
seem to require that in the matter of re-
tirements they be given by law the same
privileges accorded to their comrades in
the navy.
The process of elunination of the least
fit should be conducted in a manner that
would render it practically impossible to
apply political or social pressure on be-
half of any candidate, so that each man
may be judged purely on his own merits
Pressure for the promotion of civil o~.-
clals fur political reasons is bad enout h. ,
but it is tenfold worse where applied on
behalf of officers of the army or na"y

Field Exert4ses Advocated.
Our army is so small and so much mat-
tered that It is very difficult to give the
higher officers (as well as the lower om-
cers and the enlisted men) a chance to
practice maneuvers In mass and on a com-
paratively large scale. In time of need
so amount of individual excellence would
avail against the paralysis which would
follow inability to work as a coherent
whole under skillful and daring leadership.
The congsem should provide mean
whereby it will be peaoible to have Seld
exercises by at least a division of regu-
lanr and. If pos ble. also a division of na-
tional guardopen once a year. These -e-
ercisesa malght take the form of field =a,-

and again marched inland. Only by actual

hie to train the higher officers to pecfod

A great debt isto owing from the public
to the men of the army and navy. They
should be so treated as to enable them to
reach the highest point of efilcency so
that they may be able to respond Instant-
ly to any demand made upon them to sus-
tain the Interests of the nation and the
honor oft the flag. The Individual Amer-
Ibaa enlisted man is probably on the
whole a more formidable fighting man
than the regular of any ether army. Ev-
ery consideration should be shown him.
and In return the highest standard of
usefulness should be exacted from him.
It is well worth while for the course to

The Petall Serviee.
The remarkable growth of the p.cstal
service Is shown li th-. fact that its rev-
enues have doubled ard Its expenditures
have nearly doubled within twelve years.
Its proginesive development compels con-
stantly Increasing outlay. but in this pe-
riad of busmess energy and prosperity its
receipts grow so much faster than its ex-
puenes that the annual deficit has been
steadily reduced from 511.411.77t in 1897 to
RSa.727 In 1901. Among recent postal ad-
vances the success of rural free delivery
wherever established has been so marked
and actual experience has made Its bene-
Sts so plaim that the demand for its ex-
tesion to general and urgent.
It is t that the great agricultural
PMeplaton should share in the improve-
meut of the service. The number of rural
route now In operation is C.00, practical-
ly all estabUlhed within three years, and
there are .W applications awaiting ac-
ties. It Is expected that the number In
operation at the close of the current fiscal
year will reach M10. The mall will then
be daily carried to the doors of 5,700,000 of
our people who have heretofore been de-
pendent upon distant offices. and one-third
of n'l that portion of tl e country which is
adapted to it will be ci.vered by this kind
of service.
The full measure of postal progress
which might ie realized has long been
hampered and obstructed by the heavy
burden imposed on the government
through the intrenched and well under-
stood aboe which have grown up in con-
nection with second class mall matter
The extent of this burden appears when It
is stated that. while th.- second class mat-
ter makes nearly three-fifths of the weight
of all the mall. it paid for the last fiscal
year only .94 .445 of the aggregate postal
revenue of 111.42.193. If the pound rate
of postage. which produces the large loss
this entailed am which was fixed by the
ogress with the purpose of encouraging
the dwlseminatlo* of public Information.
wre limited to the lettlmate newspapers
and periodticalis actually contemplated by
the law. no just exception could be taken.
TIat expense would be the recognized and
accepted cost of a liberal public policy de-
Mlberately adopted for a justifiable end.
But muhek e the matter which enjoys the
privilud rate tos wholly outside of the
latent of the law and has aseured admis-
ion ao ly through an evasion of Its re-
quilrements r through lax construction.
The property of such wrongly Included
matter is estimated by postal experts to
be one-half of the whole volume of second
class mail. It It be only one-third or one-
quarter, the magnitude of the burden is
apparent. The post office department has
now undertaken to remove the abuses so
far as is possible by a stricter application
of the law, and It should be sustained in
its effort.
The Chlaese Sltatties.
Owing to the rapid growth of our power
and our Interests on the Pacific, whatever
happens In China must be of the keenest
national concern to us.
The general terms of the settlement of
the questions growing out of the antifor-
eign uprisings In China of 1900. having
been formulated in a note addressed
to China by the repres-ntatlves of the In-
jured powers in December last, were
promptly accepted by the Chinese govern-
ment. After protracted conferences the
plenipotentiaries of the several powers
were able to sign a final protocol with the
Chiaese plenipotentiaries on the 7th of
last September. setting forth the mesas-
a taken by China In compliance with
the demands of the Joint note and ex-
pressing their satisfaction therewith. It
wll be laid before the congress, with a re-
pert oC the plenipotentiary on behalf of
the United States. Mr. William Woodville
Rockhlll. to whom high praise Is due for
the tact. good Judgment and energy he
has displayed t performing an exception-
ally diffiult and delicate task.
The agreme t reached diposes in a
manner satisfactory to the powers of the
various grounds of complaint and will
contribute materially to better future re-
atitoes between China and the powers.
Rsparatkon has been made by China for
the murder of foreigners during the up-
rtaing. and punishment has been inflicted
on the ortiaia. however high in rank.

lIg all ofmcials directly responsible for the
futur- safety of foreigners and for the
uppresmn of violence against them.
Provisions have been made for Insuring
the future safety of the foreign repre-
saetatlves In Peking by setting aside for
their azcluslv use a quarter of the city
which the powers can make defensible
and In which they can Itf necessary main-
tain permanent military guard. by dis-
mantling the military works between the
caital and the sea and by allowing the

temporary maintenance of foreign mili-
tary pests along this line. An edict has
been taIsme by the emperor of China pro-
hibttew ftr two years the Importation of
arms aMd ammunition into China. China
has agreed to pay adequate Indemattles
to the states. soceties and individuals

the expenses of the military expeditions

and restore order.

Under the provisions of the Joist note

Vise the treaties of commerce and naviga-

essarily claim parity of treatment under
the conventions throughout the empire for
our trade and our citizens with those of
all other powers.
We view with lively interest and keen
hopes of benefcial results the proceedings
of the pan-American congress convoked
at the invitation of Mexico and now i.?t-
ting at the Mexican capital. Th. dflle-
gates of the ULnited States are under the
most liberal instructions to co-operate
with their colleagues in all matters prom-
ising advantage to the great family ct
Amerlean commonwealths, as well 1i
their relations among themselves as in
their domestic advancement and in their
Intercourse with the world at large.
My predecessor communicated to the
congress the fact that the Well and La
Abra awards against Mexico have been
adjudged by the highest courts of our
country to have been obtained through
fraud and perjury on the part of the
ealmants and that in accordance with
the acts of the congress the money re-
maining in the hands of the secretary of
"iate on these awards has been returned
to Mexico. A considerable portion of the
money received from Mexico on these
awards had been paid by this government
to the claimants before the decision of
the courts was rendered. My Judgment is
that the congress should return to Mexico
an amount equal to the sums thus already
paid to the claimants.
The death of Queen Victoria caus-.d th
people of the United States deep and
heartfelt sorrow, to which the government
gave full expremaon. When PresidentI Mc-
Kinley died, our nation in turn received
from every quarter of the British emliire
expressions of grief r.nd sympathy i
less sincere. The death of the Empres.
Dowag;'r Frederick of Germany also
aroused the genuine sympathy of Cie
American people, and this sympathy was
cordiaPr.y reciprocated by Germany when
the president wv:- assassinated. Inded
from uvrry q,.:trter of the clviiixzd
we received, at the time of the president's
death. assurances of such grief and re-
gard ,:a to touch the hearts of our people.
In the midst of our affliction we reverent-
ly thank the Almighty that we are at
peace with the nations of mankind, and
we firmly intend that our policy shall be
such as to continue unbroken these inter-
national relations of mutual respect and

Land Crabs.
One of the couniiuontst and the lar-
gest of the 'hristmas island land crans;
is the well known roller crab. which-
is found in most of the tropical islaijal
of the Indian and Pacific oceans. P
sometimes reaches a length of two fe,"t
and may measure seven inches across
the back. Its colors are of a very
gaudy description, the ground color be-
ing a bright red, upon which there are
stripes of yellow, but in some cases a
purplish blue is the prevailing tint.
The eyes are fixed on stalks which
can be moved independently of one an-
other, and there are two pairs-of feel-
ers, one long. the other short. The lat-
ter pair are continually jerked up and
down. There is a pair of powerful
claws, then several walking legs. In
general appearance these animals art'
much more like rather stout lobsters.
than crabs, and one's first encounter
with one of these creatures in the mid-
dle of a forest far from the sea Is pro-
ductive of much astonishment on both
Another species of land crab com-
mon in Christmas island is a little
bright red animal which in general
shape is much like the common shore
crab. This variety mnklps burrows in
the ground. and in soine places the soil
i is honeycomlnhd with hundreds of holes.

Crabs In DIi uie.
Human beings are not the only crea-
tures that have discovered the apl-
petizing. though indigestible, qualities
of crabs, and some of these animals
have been compelled to resort to vari-
ous defensive measures. Disguise is
one of these and s practiced with
great effect by spider crabs.
These deliberately bits up seaweeds
and plant them on their backs, very
soon establishing a growth which hbar-
monises perfectly with the surround-
ings and deceives many an enemy.
bSould the weeds grow too vigorously.
the crab Industriously prunes them
with his claws and every now and then
scrapes the whole lot off and starts a
fresh garden on his roof, so to speak.
The sponge crab behaves in a similar
manner, nipping off little bits of living
sponge and sticking them on his back.
where they grow vigorously. The
same end Is served as in the other case.
It is very amusing to keep crabs of
one or other of these kinds in an u.a:-
rium and deprive them of the i:. ::.l
means of concealment.
They get very nervous and agitated
and try to cover themselves with bits
of paper or anything else that may be
provided. One such captive Is said to
have had a little greatcoat made for
him. which be put on In a bhurry as
soon as it was handed to him.

meet in Ocala, Ileember 27. It will
be a remarkable convention, and
more largely attended, perhaps, of any
ever held in the state. The following
address to the public has been is-
To the public: The forthcoming
meeting of the Florida Etate teacher's
association promises to be one of the
largest and most enthusiastic gatht r-
inga we have had for several years.
Our association has been hindered
and its officers hampered for some
few years because no rates could be
secured from railroads for these oc-
The executive committee is pleas-
ed to announce that for the meeting
at Oeala we have been granted by all
railroads of the state a rate of 1I cents
a mile each way, or 8 cents round
tickets will be on sale December 26,
27 and S8, with final limit January 1,
1902. Aselation will begin Friday
airht, December 27, and close Mon-
day night, December 50. Each per-
son purchasing a ticket will pay to
agent $1 additional for membership
fee, and will receive from local agent
a cupon, upon presentation to the
secretary of association there will be
issued a certificate of membership
and a badge that will entitle the
holder to full admission to all se-sions
of the association.
The association is to be congratu-
lated upon gettiug the services as
principal lecturer, Superintendent J.
M. Greenwood, of Kansas City, Mo.,
who is facetiously spoken of aQ the
"cornbread and buttermilk educator
of the west."
The child-study movement, which
perhaps began, for this state, at Talla-
hasuee three years ago, will undertake
ita claims this year, and its commit-
tee, through Prof. H. E. Bierly,
chairman, is preparing for one of the

most elaborate displays of instru-
ments, material and literature ever
assembled at any similar occasion in
the south. This display wi!l be worth
several thousand dollars.
The kindergartners and mothers'
clubs are fully aroused, and will have
their exhibit in the armory, Ocala.
The committee will give to the teach-
ers and public au object-ls-oni in this
phase of education.
The schools and county -y'tems
that had at the state fair .i.c a re-
markable display of work, are expect-
ed to make a similar di-,piny at Ocala.
The school for the dem i and blind,
St. Augustine, will give an exhibition
of the kind of work that is done, in-
cluding the moral and religious train,.
ing of pupils.
For the first time in the history of
the association will a governor of

to the association. Governor Jennings
will be with as, and will address the
association in his felicitous style.
The Rev. Sam P. Jon3e, who has,
perhaps, addressed larger audiences
and covered in hi lecture tours, a
a wider range of territory than tiay
other minister or speaker now living.
and who today commands the respetr.
and attention of the American people
as never before, will lecture Saturday
night and preach Sunday, December
28 and 29.
The afternoon and evening of .in-
day will be devoted !o -hort addresses
from some of the most notte diuviues
upon subjects that ,-onne.-t the ttiech-

church work. We h..sve no hesitancy
in saying that this period, wbeaust of
its practicalness, will be one of the
most profitable of the entire session.
The citizens of Ocala, having found
that ihe association promises to be too
large for any single auditorium in the
city, have rented a large tent for the
occasion. This tent will seat comfor-

lighted and heated. Nothing will go
undone that human brains and skill
can furnish for the perfect comfort of
our association.

A British officer who has served in
South Africa and is now in the United
States tells a characteristic story of Lord
Kitchener. A young subaltern in charge
of some construction work in upper
Egypt had the misfortune to lose some
native workmen through the accidental
explosion of several cases of dynamite.
Fearful of a reproval from headquarters.
he telegraphed to the sirdar. "'egret to
report killing of ten laborers by slyna-

ed rebuke with fear and trepidation.

away with the present system or work-

To Be Cheerful.
The sovereign, voluntary path to
cheerfulness. if our spontaneous cheer-
fulness be lost. is to sit up cheerfully.
to look around cheerfully and to act
and speak as if cheerfulness were al-
ready there. If such conduct doesn't
make you soon feel cheerful, nothing
else will on that occasion. So. to feel
brave, act as if we were brave, use all
our will to that end, and a courage fit
will very likely replace the fit of fear.
Again, In order to feel kindly toward a
person to whom we have been inimical.
the only way is more or less deliberate-
ly to smile, to make sympathetic In-
quiries and to force ourselves to say
genial things. One hearty laugh to-
getber will bring enemies Into closer
communion of heart tlhaI hours spent
on both sides in iuward wcevtiiug with
the mental demon of uncharitable feel-

Why we Wink.
No satisfactory determination has
been made of the reason we wink.
Some suppose' that the descent and re-
turn of the lid over the eye serve to
sweep or wash it off; others that cover-
ing of the eye gives it a rest from the
labor of vision, if only for an inap-
preciable Instant. This view borrows
mFine force from the fact that the rec-
onrl of winking Is considerably used by
experimental physiologists to help
measure the fatigue which the eye suf-

no one to take li, place. and so they

All went well unt.l they came to that
scene where Faust. in leaving Margue-

Faust on this oo.asion got to the othl

measured the distance with a wabblinev

across he was trotting, one-half way

Wh'by (he Lases of the Emerald Isle
Are Beautiftl.
The Irish peasant girls have long
been famous for their beautiful, clear
skins and healthy complexions. They
owe much of their loveliness to the
moisture of the climate and the sim-
plicity of their lives. Plain, wholesome
fare and rainwater for the wash basin
tell their own tale. No matter how
homely are the features of the genuine
peasant girl. her skin is almost Invaria-

rounded, the eyes brilliant and express-

So much time Is spent out of doors
that the feet. usually bare, become en-

Wow to Lie W he Sleeping.
The correct posture for sleep is to lie
oa the right side with the limbs stretch-
ed out to their full length and the arms
either straight down by the body or in
any comfortable position, provided they
are not raised above the bead. The
mouth should be closed, and all the
muscles of the body should be relaxed.
The lungs work with greater delib-
eration during the hours of sleep, and
!f the arms are raised above the bead
at this time and fc.r any period the ac-
tion of the heart drives the blood away
from the arms and sends It to the head.

Wavlgs Purpose In Life.
Ambition to achieve has saved many
a man and woman from an early grave.

purpose in life, something which the

As ideal Nedge Plant.
F'or either ani ornamental or defenis-
ive hedge f4r all parts of the country
in and soumdia f the latitude of Phila-
delphia, Pa.-or wherever the mercury
does not fall lower-nothing can sur-
pass the hardy Japanese orange, citrus
In points of beauty and defensive
qualities it is unexcelled and leaves
nothing to be desired. It differs front
other oranges in having trifoliate or
clover-shaped leaves, larger and finer
blooms than any other sort, and pro-
duces over a much longer season, fre-
quently blooming two and three times
during the summer. The fruit is
orange-red, about the sixe of a Man-
darin orange, and is Paid to make an
excellent marmalade, and that the
juice, like that of the lemon, afbfords a
refreshing drink. Every branch and
twig is a bright, glossy green both
summer and winter, and so set with
an abundance of formidable thorns
that a sniall bird can hardly pass
through it. The magnificent appear-
ance of such a hedge, or of a single !
specimen on the lawn, in full bloom
or weighed down by its brilliant and
no less ,ornamental fruits, is more eas- 1
ily imirinled than described.
As to its perfect hardiness in the
section for which it is recommended,
there is absolutely no question. It has
ieen growing aind fruiting in the open
ground, and totally unprotected, in
the government grounds at Washing-
ton for many years, and also in Fair-
mount Park, Philadelphia. In North
Georgia there is a hedge-of it half a
mile long and several years old, and it
has been grown in Louisiana for
twenty years or more. Dr. G.Devron,
of the latter state, maid of it several
years ago: "I must ay that I know of
no variety of the Citrus family that
can be more neglected, more exposed
to the extremes of temperature, or to
excess of moisture and dryness, with
so much impunity. In seventeen
years that I have had that Citrus un-
der observation I have never
found an injurious insect on the tree
or its leaves, flowers or fruit."
1 Prof. W. F. Massey, now of the
North Carolina College of Agriculture,
fully tested it years ago in the hills of
northern Maryland, where the first
winter after the little plants were set
out they were subjected to a tempera-
ture of 18 degrees below zero and 4
degrees below at noon, with a bright
sunshine and no snow on the ground.
Although entirely unprotected, they
were not injured in the least, and long
since came into full bearing. Professor
Massey says of it: "It is naturally a
dwarf tree and will need but little
trimming to keep it within bounds
It will never become a nuisance, like
the so-called Osage orange or Macliuri,
by sprouting from the roots. We

Oklahoma's Claim.
At the present session Oklahoma
will knock at the doors of congress tor
admission to full statehood.
It is only eleven years since it was,
organized as a territory and the en-
sus taken a year ago gives her a popu
nation of 4Ml,<014.
Most of the states had lees popula-
tion than Oklahoma when they were
admitted into the union and only by
rank discrimination can this young
territory's claim be rejected.
Oklahoma is a rich and well watered
country and its future is bright with
promise from an agricultural, mining
and trading standpoint, and if Frank
Clark, J. H. Carry and D. H. Hunni-
eutt are sample types of Its pioneers
forensically it will be heard from
somewhat after the style that Nebras-

Kouiak. Not Kadlak.
On the coast of Alaska, near Cook in-
let, is a large island which has had trou-
ble with its name-trouble with its spell.
Inh, trouble with its pronunciation.
The spelling now adopted by the United
States board of eocraphical names is
Kodiak oprono;:nced Ko-di-ak), this being
a reversal of the decision Kadiak made
by the same boa;d about ten years ago.
The universal local usage as to this name
is Kodiak. Sunch, also. is the general
usage on the 'acific coast. It is this
widely extended and firmly established
usage which has led the board to discard
an alleged "correct" form and a4opt an
alleged "corrupt" form which local usage
has firmly established. National Geo-

The electric light was exhibited for the
irAnt time in the Unitedl States at the
Centennial exposition. but those who !aw
it were skeptical regar~din,1 the. possibili-
ty of ui.iuig it upon any si-ale that woulj
be of practical benefit to mankInd.
While are lichtinc wa-is produced Aupon
a commercial scale in 1S77, the real his-
tory of the art as regarlds its modern as-
pects dates from the opening of the Pearl
street station in New York city by Thom-
as A. Edison on Sept. 4. 1882. in which
the Edison inauanles-et lamp was used.
In ninetee-n years this industry has grown
to where the investment in electric light-
Ing plants in the United States alone now
reaches the enormous sum of $7M0000.-
000. according to a very careful tabula-
tion made by The Electrical Iteview of
New York. .
This extraordinary achievement repre-
sents a struggle with powerful and well
organized competition of a long estab-
lished industry-that of gas illumination.
It made its way against bitter opposition,
against corrupt councils and the difficel:
ties and failure incident to overcapital-
isation to where it is now, one of the sol-
id, certain and remunerative Industries
of the country.
