Spirit Raises the
Standard of Living.
Dy OSCAR S. STRAUS. Secretory ot Commerce
XTR era, the commercial era, began with tho Doclarn-
1 tionof Indcpondonco.
am placing your patriotism on a lower lovoi wncn jl
say that America started, her career with n commercial
and economic declaration that lod to her independ
ence. It contained two principles tho first, that tho
2 V t
king of Great Britain had cut us off from all tho trado of tho world;
tho second, taxation without representation is tyranny. Behind theso
economic questions rest tho great principles upon which our form of
THIS SPIRIT, THIS COMMERCIAL SPIRIT, INSTEAD OF BEING
THE LOWEST IS THE HIGHEST IN CHARACTER. IT DOESNT
REST ON CONQUEST OR NATURAL ANTAGON'.SM, BUT UPON MU
TUALITY AND GOOD WILL. THE ERA COMMERCIAL HAS DONE
MORE TO USHER IN THOSE INTERNATIONAL MEASURES THAT
MAKE FOR UNIVERSAL PEACE THAN ALL OTHERS COMBINED.
r The Caesars and tho Pomp"eys fought to enrich therasolves that
they in turn might rule tho Roman government and dominate tho
people. They sought war for selfish purposes. How much nobler and
grander is tho modern spirit commercial !
Trado does not follow tho flag nor seek its own at tho cannon's
mouth. TRADE SEEKS THE HIGHWAYS OF PEACE and
makes those highways more and moro peaceful.
Formerly tho bright and brilliant men who camo from the col
leges cast their fortunes with tho law, medicino or tho ministry, leav
ing to thoso who " n'e loss gifted tho marts of trade. Now it is all
changed. Now tho brightest, brainiest, ablest men seek the ways of
commerce, of manufacture, of industry.
The spirit commercial brings prosperity to tho nation- and to tho
ppoplo. It raises tho standard of living among tho masses. It is not
measured by commodities or by tho number of millionaires wo have,
but by tho condition of tho millions it affects.
There novor was a timo or a country where tho standard' of living
was higher than horo in tho United States today. True, thero is dis
content, but I do not object to that. It only means that tho masses,
having had a taste of some of tho good things of life, desire advance
ment to better things. Therein lies tho cssenco of progress. I don't
mean jealousy or envy, but that restlessness which makes for higher
and better living.
THE BEST CIVILIZATION 18 THAT WHICH OFFERS THE
GREATEST OPPORTUNITIES TO THE MASSES. OPPORTUNITY 18
GIVEN TO ALL IN OUR COUNTRY. SUCCESS IN ANY 8PHERE
DEPENDS UPON THE INDIVIDUAL, HIS CAPACITY, HIS ABILITY,
HIS ENERGY, HI8 SACRIFICES. COMMUNISM, OR WHATEVER YOU
CHOOSE TO CALL IT, CRU8HES OUT THE VERY THING THAT
MAKES FOR THE PROGRESS AND PROSPERITY OF A COUNTRY.
Signs of Certain Dissolution
Of the British Empire Visible.
Hv Cirdlnal LOGUE. Prlmtto of Ireland.
IT is a gratifying realization for me to observe' that one of tho
great factors in your progress has been duo to tho emigration
from Ireland of its millions of sturdy and devoted sons and
EXGLAND IN ITS BLIND PERSECUTION OF OUR PEO
PLE did not f oreseo that it was creating on this sido of tho Atlantic
an Ireland greater and moro progressive than tho littlo island from
which oppression forced so many of its children to flee.
I well remember telling Chief Secrotary for Ireland Forster,
known in tho early days of tho great Land League agitation as "Buck-1
shot" Forster, that I should not bo surprised to seo tho coup do graco
administered to England in its declining days by tho Irish in America.
IT MAY NOT BE THAT SUCH A WORLD EVENT WILL TAKE
PLACE IN MY TIME, BUT I SEE ALREADY THE SIGNS OF THE
CERTAIN DISSOLUTION OF THE BRITI8H POWER.
Its colonies are restive. Australia is today practically independ
ent of the mother country, and tho trend is every moment moro and
moro in tho direction of absolute rebellion. Now Zealand is carrying
a chip on its shoulder.. Canada is enacting laws that show its desiro
to conduct its own business in its own way.
In tho great domain of the East Indies thoy have not yet reached
tho point where insurroctionariea are shot to pieces from tho cannon's
mouth, as in tho days of Cawnpur, but THE FIRES OF REBEL
LION ARE LIGHTED, and "they're hangin' men and women"
for daring to counsel the never dying doctrine of freedom.

CHE constitution needs no amendment. It has triumphantly
carried us to OUR PRESENT EXALTED POSITION
among tho nations of tho earth, and if it continues to bo ex
pounded by tho supremo court, unawed and uncontrolled by
popular clamor, passions, combinations or interests of any character
or by legislative or executive dictation, it will carry us through an
other century and indefinitely beyond TO A STILL MORE
The constitution is "not a nose of wax, to bo twisted this way or
that." Tho rights of tho state as against tho central authority and of
tho citizen as against tho state must be maintained in all their integ
rity and vigor.
When tho light of the supreme court shines the "twilight zone"

SECOND THAW CA8E DELAYED
Judge Mills Orders Postponement of
Two Weeks to Permit Filing Briefs.
At White Plains, N. Y.. Judge
Mills adjourned the Thaw case two
weeks, when counsel will submit affi
davits and arguments on the question
of a Jury trial.
Thaw was remanded to Poughkeep
sle jail for convenience ot his counsel,
Mr. Morschuuser, who lives in Pough
keepsie. Under the proceeding by which
Thaw was brought there the question
of his right to a jury trial was raised.
In the first habeas corpus proceedings
in Poughkeepsle this point was not
brought up, as counsel for Thaw as
sumed that his sanity was perfect.
Thaw's chances for a jury trial as
to his sanity appear to be Very bright
Situation at Teheran.
A dispatch received by the London
Times from Teheran paints a gloomy
picture of the situation It says that
general uncertainty exists and that the
feeling of Insecurity Is increasing.
Tho people are driven to despair and
the half famished soldiers, eager for
loot, commit acts of flagrance Mean
while the royal camp Is Increasing In
strength and Is said to number 10.000
men. General Llakhoff Is the master
of the sltuution and Is ruling as an
absolute Independent viceroy. The
shah, the dispatch concludes, seems
to have no program for the future ad
ministration of the country.
