kx When the historic edifice of the col-
onies, crowned by the gift of auton
iXiJli omy. disappeared, destroyed by your
l.yst squadrons, all the hopes of their peo
pie turned to that other edifice which
i.0f3 was to be erected on the broad basis
of a democracy which is the aston
ishment of the world. Even the most
pessimistic believed that in no case,
under no pretext, would It curtail the
liberties conferred by the former rule.
Ah, air. not only does it curtail, it
annihilates anf. destroys them. In
Porto Rico popular suffrage Is a farce.
The order of the governor the, only
law in the case for the conduct of the
elections, creates a board of inscrip
tion in San Juan and various subordi
nate boards throughout the island. All
are alike appointed by the governor
himself. And they have the power of
inscribing or not inscribing the elec-
tors, according to their caprice and
without any further responsibility.
Thus It was that at the election of
the chamber only one party cast their
votes, the party which flattered the
government, seconding its plans, bow
ing to its acts of injustice and accept
ing in shameful silence or with in
comprehensible applause the death of
their country. And, therefore, it is
that the chamber in which only one
shade of political opinion exists, rep
resents not the idea or the interests
of the country, but the ideas and the
interests of the government which im
posed and sustains it by force. Those
who in Porto Rico represent the
wealth and the intellectuality of the
island remain proscribed by the ad
ministration, doubtless for the enor
mous crime of desiring for their coun
try American liberties under the Am
erican flag.
Those liberties do not exist in Porto
Rico. The municipalities cannot ap
point the teachers in their schools,
for in their appointment the commis
sioner of education intervenes, nor the
physicians in their districts, for the
health commissioner must be con
sulted; nor the watchman in their
wards, for the governor appoints all
the members of the insular police and
the towns are not permitted to have
their own police force, nor can they
impose or collect their taxes, for the
treasurer of the island has entire
charge of this function, so that in
Porto Rico there are no municipalities
and even the vacancies in the offices
of mayors and councilors are filled by
the governor.
The judicial body, from the judges
of the supreme court down to the
justices of the police courts, are. ap
pointed in the same way.
And they are appointed exclusively
in the Interests of one party, so that
the tribunals are not the highest guar
anty of society in the island, but the
docile instruments of political pas
sions. Not long ago, in the month
of April, all of the judges who were

not appointed by the republican party
were deprived of office. Among them
were jurisconsults of great distinction
and of unblemished reputation. They
were replaced by young men just grad
uated from the universities, the admin
istration of justice being thus, in
trusted to ineptitude and inexperience.
Tyranny such as this is known only
in the steppes of Russia, the domin
ions of the Ottoman porte or among
the despotic mandarins of the celestial
empire. Chicago Chronicle.

To request that I settle my bill;
My landlady asks with a frown for her
And there isn't a cent in the till.

But I walked into town, and I walked
all the way
With a step it's surprising to tell.
And I'm gayest tonight in the ranks
of the gay,
For my meerschaum is coloring well.
At first I had fears of what looked like
a crack,
And my breath came in gasps of
But oh, how the joy of my heart
flooded back

Gannon's Com Story
Congressman "Joe" Cannon of Il
linois is a man of strong likes and dis
likes, and never does anything by
halves. In the list of his likings, so
far as culinary matters are concerned,
his fondness for green corn takes first
rank, and on this score he tells a good
story at his own expense.
After a long sojourn in Washington
he returned home and started out to
look after his political fences in his
district. At a small village hotel,
where he stopped for dinner, a
scanty plate of fine roasting ear3 was
placed before him as a side dish. Im
mediately he abandoned the main bill-of-fare
and applied himself exclu
sively to the green corn. When the
plate was depleted he called for more
roasting ears, and continued his feast
until he-had made his entire meal
from he staple product of the Illinois
prairies. The hotel keeper noticed
the array of cobs stacked upon tne
plate of the tall politician, whose iden
tity w-as unknown to him, and said:
"Say, stranger, what in thunder do
you want to board at a hotel" for? The
place for you to put up at is a livery
stable.- Don't you know green fodder
is a dum sigut cheaper in a barn than
in a house?"
During the remainder of the cam
paign Congressman Cannon retailed
this story to his constituents and
turned it to good account among tne
corn growers. Saturday Evening Post.
Test of Good Breeding
One of the shibboleths of life is the
ability to receive an apology graceful
y. It is far easier to make an apol
ogy than it is to take one. The "I-told-you-so"
reception is an old story
that is worn and threadbare, but it is
by no means the only form of discourt
esy, not to say cruelty, that springs
hydra-headed from the lipsof the re
ceiver of an apology. It seems never
to occur to these persons what the bat
Vie has been that the giver of an apol
ogy has gone through before he has
arrived at the point of humbling him
self sufficiently to say he has made a
mistake, or, even worse, committed
an affront. The air of "Well, have
you at last come to see what a fool
you are?" that characterizes nine per
sons out of ten u whom an apology is
offered, is, if no one tut themselves
were concerned, sufficient reason for
never acknowledging a wrong done.
But the apologlzer has also himself to
consider, and must, in order to keep
his self-respect unsullied, - go on ac
knowledging his fault, even at the risk
of being thrown back upon himself
through the lack of fine perception in
the arrogant and self-righteous. He
who can receive an apology in such a
way as not to hurt the giver is well
bred indeed, for his breeding resfs
upon that firm rock, a full understand
ing. "Do not unto others that thing
which you would not wish done unto
you." Boston Journal.
"when I came pretty near letting a
chance go by."
"But your presence of mind saved
you?" , , :
'.'Exactly. I had boarded a train and
discovered that I had carelessly left
all my firearms behind me. But the
Black Raven Ranger , was not to be
daunted. I took the porter's white
jacket and whisk broom. It was a
little slow, but I got all there was be
fore I quit." Washington Star.
A New Acid Plant
A large fertilizer chemical plant is
now in course of construction at At
lanta, Ga., which will be used by Ar
mour & Co. The plant will cost near
ly a half million dollars, and will be
situated on the Southern railroad and
Seaboard Air Line. The buildings,
when completed, .will consist of a sul
phuric acid plant with a capacity of
sixty tons of acid per day, and a man
ipulating plant to take care of the
various materials used in the manu
facture of commercial fertilizers.
Armour & Co. has been extending its
fertilizer business greauy cf late and
using its own materials in the manu
facture of commercial fertilizers,
which it sells direct to the planters and
farmers, thus avoiding middlemen's
charges and retaining control of the
animal products. The animal fertil
izer ingredients claim superiority oyer
cotton seed meal fertilizers, owing to
their preponderance of nitrogen, and
are largely used.
The Virginia-Carolina Chemical
company, familiarly known as the
"Southern Fertilizer trust," has with
in the last six weeks purchased the
eight plants of the Southern Cotton
Oil company and some twenty indepen
dent cotton oil plants. This move
has evidently been made with the idea
of controlling cottonseed meal, which
it can use in the manufacture of fer
tilizers, and thus be Independent of
the packing houses, from whom it has
for many years been buying large
quantities of blood, tankage, bone,
etc., known as ammoniates, and used
in the compounding of fertilizers.
Chicago Tribune. ,
"There was one occasion," said the
train robber who was exchanging
reminiscences with his companions,
Last night a brown bird flew straight
Into the west,
Straight into the glow of the sun
- set's red light,
And see, he comes back with Its fire on
his breast,
Speeding to tell a wee baby good
night, , ;
Before hl3 eyes close, 1
And to dreamland he goes.
The soft air is full of a blossomy whirl
Of tiny dreams, fluttering down from
the trees1
Each one is as pure and as fine as a
And all for a baby, his fancy to
While mother sings low,
"Go, little one, go."
Up, up, in the darkness, the rosy stars
Like crocus buds, 'broidered on win
ter's black hem;
And, hark, through the stillneB3 of
pine-scented hush,
Each note of the lullaby falls like a
Slow, tender and deep,
"Sleep, little one, sleep."
"O dear little heart, press thee closer
to me!
I love the soft touch of thy head's
sunny gold,
Hedged round by my prayers through
the night thou shalt be.
As safe as a lamb in the sheltering
Thy pillow my breast.
Rest, little one, rest."
