These amounts and those included in
the general appropriation bill, amount-
ing to $472,000. make the demands upon
the general revenue fund for the next
year a total of $868,111, Af9M, in my
judgment, necessitates the tax levy at
the maximum figureofli mills for gen-
eral revenue as fixed by the Legislature.
I believe, however, that some relief
may be given the taxpayer in the mat-
ter of pension levy, the Legislature fix-
ing the maximum of that millage at 4
mills, when 3 mills will probably meet
t he demands for the next twelve months.

Black peolmism reigned at Ports-
mouth, N. H., Friday. The prevailing
view is that the fate of the peace
conference is already sealed hat
It has ended In failure, and that al
that now remains Is for the plenipotemw
tiarles to meet on Tuesday to which
they adjourned Friday afternoon upon
completing the nsrlatim (onsideraTlon
of the Japanese terms, sign the final
protocol, g9 through the conventions
and ,bid each other farewell.
Hut thero Is still rOm for hope of
a compromise. Neither President
Itoosevelt nor the powers will see
that chance of peace shipwrecked
without a final effort, and that prea-
sure is being exerted, especially at
Toklo ,to induce Japan to moderate
her terms, is b.-yond question.
Just what is being done or Is to be
done has not transpired. King Edward
Is understood to be now lending a
helping hand, and the financiers of
the world are known to be exerting all
their lnfluen tersburg, the final issue will be der
The Japene'se have been Implacable
thromghout the sis day slttlngs. They
have listened and explained, but they
have yielded not an lota of the sub-
stance of their original demands.

There is a blind man living nl the
heart of New York who walks nearly
every day from hti hoae to a little
restaurant In Canal street. The dis-
tance each way is from eighteen to
twenty blocks, according to bhi route,

smell of thb streets are all mixed
up, but when he Is blind he learns
to separate them. The odors of the
shops when the doors are open these
fine days are almost as plain to my

doors. Some of them yon might
never notice. Take a dry goods store,
for instance. It smells of cloth. Iron
and tin have smells of their own, ama
I ran tell a hardware store laimedl-
arely, I pass two book stores nearly
every day, and I seest them yar4s ot

great many other Indmecribable oaore
by which I know this place and rhat.

Booker Washlagton Denies Escorting
Wsnwmakir's Daughter to Dinner
Table In Saratoga Hotel.
A New York dispatch says: Book-
er T. Whahington, the Tuakegee negro
educator, has made a statement in ref.
erence to dining with the family of
John Wanamaker, formerly postmastorr
general, at a Saratoga hotel. Wash-
ington admits that he dined with Wan-
amaker's family, but5 denies that he
escorted, Mars Barclay Warbuton,
WUnamaker's daughter, to the dining
room. Washington statement follows:
"I have'Just seen for the flrst time
the misleading and false reports in
southern newspapers referring to my
escorting female members of Mr. Wan-
amaker's family, but denies that he
of a Saratoga hotel. I have not re-
ferred to these reports because they
have just come to my notice.
"I did not escort any female mem-
ber of Mr. Wanamaker's family to
or out of the dining room. I did dine
with Mr. Wanamaker and members of
his family at a hotel at his request,
for the purpose of talking on a mat-
ter of business, but at the time was
a guest myself at a colored hotel in
"During the last fifteen years I have
been at the hotel, where Mr. Wan-
amaker was, on three different occa-
alons when I was to speak at public
meetings, as I was this time, and
no comment was made of it.
"WIhen in the south, I conform, like
all colored i:eople, to the customs of
the south, but when in the north I
have found it necessary during the
last twenty years. as stated fully in
my loolk, 'Up Fromu Slavery.' to come
il contact with white people in the
furtherance of my work in ways I do
not in the south.
On Friday and Saturday The Mo-
Htle (Ala.) Herald asked by wire for
the opinions of The New York Sun,

The lmrald then sent the following
to each of the five papers:

In an extract frem an address by
Mr. Ralph Petets, published in this
issue under the title of "Tne ftallroaft
and the People," the fundamental
iolnt is well made that transporta
tCon is a commodity, not a tax." Whon
you consider the generic differeac
Let een the business methods by
which prices for the commodities ol
commerce are fixed from day to day,
almost hourly, and the political meth-
o.s by which taxes are assessed and
t collected, you will realize the fact that
ra.t'-fixing by law will destroy abo-
lutn y t er.';, :.:d tiu' oi pc t Ii t, !.::. a tonmp.'t! [vo mar-
kit. Hallroad tratlic r:a;iagers will .be

that tare always ot-eturr.ng in relation
ito so0111' proA;wi',' r locality, which re-
(;llre proni pt atc In it a benefit is to
lie secured.
In our opinion, shippers who are
urging the eractment of a measure
(,conferring rate-making power upon
the Interutate Commerce Commission,
or any other governmental agency,
viw the subject from an unsound
t.-onomic s:andpoint, and for that 3.-
ton are asking for a remedy for the
abtiiuss of r'fbat'A and dscriminatlons
which will cause greater evils than
the abu,;es of which they complain.
Tlit important fact is, transportation
rates have been reduced to a lower
point in the United States than in
aiy other country as a result of a
free hand in fixing rates that has com-
pellel every tratfc masnger to be
keen to prevent his road from losing
tmraffc because of lower charges by
Pome other road. Destroy this condi-
tion, interpose the barrier of a gov-
t mental agency between the pro-
d(ucer and buyer of railroad transpor-
tation, so that they can no longer
meet In a free market, and make
the prompt adjustments required by
Sver <'hanging commercial conditions,
andl you will place a handicap on the
shppours of thil country that will para-
lyze them in the:r efforts to handle
a very large numoer of transactions.
Careful reasoning from a correct view-
i:oint will convince shippers that this
lia true. It is easy to make the mis-
take uf trainsferring the rate-making
plow'r to a governmental agency, but
it w!: 1 hl exceedingly difficult to cor-
ri'-t th mistake after experience has
tcoimpellel tile peop!e to realize its
ild'Hdvantages. This rate-making prob-
lIm in similar In many respects to the
proposition for the free and unlimited
,oninage of silver and gold at the ratio
of if; to 1. It would have been easy
to have enacted such a law. Once en-
acted, it would have promptly put the
comtutTrcilal and financial operations
of the people of this country upon a
silver basis. The resulting disaster
would have been terrific. and it would
have taken a hundred years to secure
the repeal of the unwise legislation.
the substitution therefore of correct
laws and a recovery from the damage
done. Relieving this, an we do, we feel
the nee,j of stating this case clearly
andi frequently. We feel it to be a duty
to 1do our share in the work of aidlng
to prevent the making of the fuda-
mental mistake that will be
made if rate-making is transferred
from the sphere of business oper4tUCs
to the domain of poittcal intrigue a14

ed an address before a large audience
of life Insurance men, at Milwaukoe.
Wis. He devoted most of his talk
to modern graft, and praised Preasl
dent Roosevelt for his efforts to makv

This had been a year which might
be characterized as one of great In-

had been full of startling allegations
In respect to the manner In which
some Inaurance business had been
conducted. The result had been pre-
judicial to the Interests of certain
companies and also to the business of
others. He believed there would re-
mult great benefit to insurance bust.

The moment private pecuniary gain
was sought through the advantage of

They're telling a story on a waiter
In the German garden at Electric
Park. At Intervals around the garden
are nailed lsgns which read: "Gct
your waiter's number when ordering.'
One night recently a man sat down
at a table and ordered a glass of lenm-
onadp. The waiter was about to start
away when the customer said:
"Hey, gimme that badge you got
on "
The waiter removed the steel badwe
and handed it to the man, supposing
the latter simply wantsel to see it.
He soon returned with the lemonade.
When he had got his money and the
badge back (he farmer said:
"Say, friend, what did I have to got
that badge from you for?"
S "Have to get it -what do you
mean?" asked the, waiter.
"Look a-the're'" replierl the man
pointing to one of the signs.
'The waiter then realized why the
