The close of the tourist ticket season
ha brought out the fact that at least
2,000 persons have taken up perma
nent residence In Colorado, a3 a result
of mid-summer excursions.
Friends, thought absent, are still
present; though In poverty they are

A man In Alpine, Col., Is at least
willing to sell his body for money.
His name is W. 8. Coburn, a prospec
tor. He owns a lot of mining property
that Is valuable, but his credit is ex
hausted and he cannot get money to
further work it. Hence he thus ad
vertises In a local paper: "If I have a
right to sell my body when it becomes
a corpse I am in the market for any
body desiring such Investment. My
body will make a good skeleton."
A fault In the New Zealand submar
ine cable, which recently caused much
trouble to find and repair, is stated to
have been caused by the bite of a fish.
It was almost bitten through, a broken
tooth, half an inch long and apparent
ly belonging to a fish of lare size, be
ing found embedded in tbe strands,
which rested 330 fathoms below the
surface. The accident is of a very un
usual nature, as large fish do not usu
ally descend to such great depths.
An effort will be made at the coming
ession of congress to have the census
office made a permanent bureau of the
government. The proposal has the
support of common sense. To assem
ble all the experts necessary to carry
on this great undertaking, as well as
to train the thousands of clerks, Is too
large a task to undertake "from the
ground up" on each decennial year.
Much statistical work, moreover, might
be distributed to advantage through
the decade.

girl used to run away from her hus
band's house to her father's, and on
the last occasion she was brought by
the accused, who, after subjecting her
to various tortures, branded her with a
pair of red-hot tongs, and thereby dis
figured her permanently. The accused

A portion of a hatpin, about three
Inches long, was found in the Intes
tines of Alfred Phillips, a four-year-old
boy of No. 733 Wythe avenue, Brook
lyn, who was operated on for appendi
citis. The pin was badly rusted, and
evidently had been in the boy's body
for some time. Tbe child had suffered
from severe pains for several months
but It was not until recently that an
operation was decided upon. It Is
feared that the boy cannot live, as
the intestines were perforated several
timet by the pin.
The common notion that Germans
are the heaviest beer drinkers is refut
ed by statistics published by the Britisb
Board of Trade. Last year every Ger
man, on the average, drank twenty
seven gallons, while the average Eng
lishman drank thirty-two gallons. The
consumption in the United States was
less than half as much, per capita, as
in Germany. With the exceptions of
the Belgians, tbe British an tbe larg
est beer-drinkers in the world, and the
consumption has grown rapidly during
the last fifteen years. A sharp change
toward total abstinence would compe
a recasting of budgets, for last year
36 per cent of the net revenue of Great
Britain was derived from the taxation
of beer, wine and spirits.
Ten thousand dollars Is the price
which Andrew Foy, a stonemason
thinks the city of New York should
pay him for three of his front teeth
On the night of Sept. 17 Foy stepped
off a new cement sidewalk In the
vicinity of Kedzle avenue and West
Taylor street, and, losing his balance,
fell against an upright piece of scant
ling. Three of his front teeth were
driven far into tbe scantling by the
force of the fall, and Foy could not re
lease them. He took the scantling
long and sought a dentist, but the
teeth came out when tfcr dentist tried
to pull the scantling off. The scant

Another step has been taken toward
the consolidation of the railroad sys
tems of the United States in the hands
of a single group of capitalists. The
formation of the "Northern Securities
company, witn a capital or iuu,uuu,
000, for tbe purpose of holding the
stock of the Northern Pacific, Great
Northern and Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy railroads, clinches the arrange
ment by which 47.372 miles of West
ern road3. capitalized at about two
billion dollars, have been brouw:.t un
der one control.
Practically this creates an entire
monopoly west of the Mississippi, for,
while a few systems remain nominally
outside of the combination, almost all
of them are in complete subjection to
t We may say, then, that the work
of monopolizing the West i3 finished.
But when we glance at the list of
the men who have formed this combi
nation, and note that it contains the
names of the Vanderbilts, the Rocke
fellers, the Goulds, J. P. Morgan, James
J. Hill, E. H. Harriman, Daniel S. La
mont, James Stillman, D. O. Mills, Au
gust Belmont, H. E. Huntington, Og-
den Armour and others as well known
in New York, it becomes plain that
the "community of interests'' is by no
means confined to the West. It would
be interesting to trace the power of
this great aggregation of wealth
through the directorates and stock lists
of the country. It seems an extremely
moderate statement to say that the
capitalists who have united in the
Western deal control at least one-half
of the railroad mileage of the United
And it will be much easier for them
to obtain the second half than it has
been to get the first. They know how
to go to work now, and they have the
money to do It. One railroad after
another will Blide gently into their
grasp until any passenger anywhere
who objects to traveling on their lines
can take a trolley car or walk.
A few year3 ago this process would
have thrilled the nation with rage and
terror. We observe It with perfect
calmness now. It seems a long time
since the Interstate Commerce act was
expected to prevent "pooling arrange
ments" between competing roads.
We have ceased to expect anything
from competition now In the railroad
business any more than in gas and
water. We have learned that concen
tration in such matters la inevitable.
and that the only question is whether
the concentration shall be in the public
interests or against them.
Thus far the engineers -of the rail
road combination have done a most
useful public work. They will con
tinue to do a useful public work until
the last independent road is brought
into the general system.
If the government had undertaken to
assume control of the railroads of the
United States a few years ago, when
every road wan running on its own
hook, it would have found Itself facing
an appallingly complicated task As
it is, the best business brains in Amer
ica are doing the work of organiza
tion for it. They are smoothing out
all tbe difficulties, consolidating the
staffs, harmonizing the schedules and
creating one vast, smoothly running
machine. When they have finished, all
the government will have to do will be
to assume the debts of the system, is
suing national bonds for stock, and
give the general manager a commis
sion from the president of the United
Some of these able capitalists are
working consciously towr.rds this end.
The rest are doing tbe same thing un
consciously. "SO PERSONAL PROPERTV."
It Is the general conception of the
unthinking masses that taxation does
not interest them. They talk of taxa
tion as does a child of its rattle box.
They have as yet been unable to com
prehend that the power to tax is the
power to extort, and through the
method now in vogue the poor, the
great masses, are robbed of the fruits
of their toll.
Everything produced by human
hands from the time human hands
first laid hold of it "Is taxed," and
within the price of that commodity on
the market are embodied all the taxes
that were levied In Its course of pro
duction. "Pergonal property," if I understand
the meaning of this term, relates to
those things which the exclusive prop
erty of a perron. If this definition be
correct then there Is no such a thing
as "personal property." For how
could a thing belong exclusively to a
person If tbe government by taxation
bas a claim upon it and compels the
possessor to pay a part of It In the
form of personal property tax each
year It is found in bis possession?
That you may see the injustice of
this tax I Illustrate: If you purchase
110 worth of bread the assessor does
not levy tbe tax upon you, but if in
stead you purchased a table the as
sessor will tax you not once, but each
year he finds the table la ye or pos
session. This tax cannot be collected
with any accuracy and breeds liars
Inasmuch as everyone tries to escape
The newspapers recognising that
this tax Is detested by tie people,
should and will receive as hearty a
support as Cleveland and Cuyahoga
county, Ohio, gavu it the recent elec
tion to those who bland for tax reform.-
G. J. Foyer,
Senator Spooner is reported to be as
much opposed to the principle of the
Hanna-Payne shipping bounty bill as
ha was last winter. He would like
to see something done to restore the
merchant marine in the foreign trade,
but "not along the lines now contem
plated." Two lines are now contemplated.
One of them along with the Hanna
Payne bill was constructed, leads In
the direction of speedy "ocean grey
hounds" and passenger traffic. The
other leads in the direction of freight
business "under the flag," without
much regard to passenger business.
Tbe Hanna-Payne crowd propose to
bounty In proportion to speed and
leave freight to take care of itself.
The other bountyists propose to
bounty in proportion to freight car
ried. Both these factions have much to
say about the small percentage of
oversea freight carried in American
bottoms, implying that the chief pur
pose of the bounty is to increase our
oversea freight business. The Hanna
Payne plan, however, would bounty
corporations which are now doing a
profitable business without bounties,
and it would not be much of an Induce
ment to the building of freighters.
One plan is about as bad as the
other in that it would take a great
many millions of money contributed by
American taxpayers and hand them
over to individuals and corporations.
If it is true that Senator Spooner is
opposed to both these evil methods
there is reason for satisfaction. He
can exert a good deal of influence
when he chooses, and it Is gratifying
to know that he intends to use his in
fluence against these bad measures if
such is the case.

New York Evening Post: The latest
shift of the "let-the-tariff-alone" fac
tion In the Republican party is to sug
gest that all questions of revision of
duties, with all reciprocity arrange
ments, be turned over to a commission,
which is to report to congress in 1S02
or 1903. Even a tariff commission has
its dangers for the monopolists. It
will have to grant hearings and to
bring out facts. The result may be
to kindle, instead of to smother, pop
ular agitation, and even to convert tbe
commission itself, as the tariff com
mission of 1882 was converted. That
body was chosen as a band of trust
worthy protectionists, yet was com
pelled by the testimony presented to
it to recommend a reduction of the
tariff by an average of 20 per cent ad

We hear from Washington that
American statesmen are busying them
selves with "great world problems,"
to the exclusion of American problems.
If this were true it would be deplor
able, for we have plenty of homo prob
lems which are vastly more important
to us than any "world problems." But
It Is not true. A glance over the list
of some fifteen "world problems" dis
closes the fact that most of them are
petty and even contemptible as com
pared with home problems which our
statesmen are trying to ignore. It dis
closes the fact also that the most Im
portant of all the so-called world prob
lems are really domestic ones in so far
as we are specially concerned in them.

Boston Herald: Tbe experience
which France has had in the last twen
ty years with shipping bounties fur
nishes strong proof that successful
shipping lines cannot be built up by
government subsidy aiono to a point
where they cau shift for themselves.
Instead of arriving at a condition
where they can do away with the boun
ty of the government, the French ves
sel owners are always asking for more,
and will doubtless now get a higher
rate, both for steam and sail vessels,
than that paid twenty years ago.
Should our own congress adopt a ship
ping subsidy policy, we will doubtless
have the same experience.

more than offset by the ill odor of Its

Indianapolis Journal: It appear
from tbe report of tbe commissioner ol
pensions that 25 per cent of the total
enrollment of soldiers during the Spanish-American
war have filed claims for
pension. In 1872, seven years after
the civil war, only C per cent of the
soldiers engaged In It had asked for
pensions. This unprecedented rush for
pensions the commissioner attributes
to the canvassing for such claims by a
class of claim agents.

Believes That Debating Societies) Should
Be Organised On Independent Lines
In Order to Keacb Those Outside the
The election is over, and while the
returns are not sufficiently complete
for analysis it is evident that the Dem
ocratic party has not made any con
siderable gains since 1900, writes W.
J. Bryan in the Commoner. In an
other column the returns, so far as
they are in, have been discussed and
tume of the difficulties encountered
have been enumerated. It is plain
that there must be a large amount of
educational work done if the country
is to be saved from the evil results
that must necessarily follow the con
tinued support of Republican policies.
How can thiK work be done? The
large dailies cannot be relied upon, be
cause they are too intimately connect
ed with the men and the corporations
enriched by Republican policies. It
cannot be done entirely through the
Democratic and Populist weeklies, for
they do not, as a rule, reach the peo
ple who most need enlightenment A
debating society should be organized
in each country precinct and in each
village. Let it be non-partisan in Its
membership and educational in its pur
pose. Meetings should be held once a
month, or, if possible, once in two
weeks, for the discussion of public
Let the motto of the society be:
"Country first, party afterwards."
To avoid any wrangle about the of
ficers It would be well to select the
president from the party having the
largest vote in the precinct, and the
vice president from the leading minor
ity party. If three other officers, re
cording secretary, corresponding secre
tary and treasurer, are selected, all
parties can be given a fair representa
tion in the management of the society
and the arrangement of programs. The
officers of the society, if they consti
tute a committee on program, should
arrange, besides other features, for a
discussion of some live question at
each meeting the leaders to open the
debate and the other members of the
society to have an opportunity to
speak briefly when the leaders are
No one should be afraid of having
his party Injured by a full and fair
presentation of all public questions.
The person who objects to the discus
sion of public questions confesses the
weakness of his own cause or bringi
an indictment against the intelligence
and patriotism of the people. The
hope of the nation lies, first, in the
study of public questions, and, next,
lc a baliot cast according to the dic
tates of conscience and Judgment.
While It is Impossible at this time to
measure and weigh the local Influences
which may have affected the general
result, says W. J. Bryan's Commoner,
enough la known to justify the con
clusion that the two leading political
parties show practically the same
strength that they did a year ago. If
the Republican policies which have
been developing during the last twelve
months have aroused any protest
among the people, that protest has
been off-set by the Influence exerted
by the assassination of the President.
The Republicans everywhere con
fessed their reliance upon this Influ
ence when they devoted so much time
to appeals to the personal regard felt
for McKinley, the man. It Is not un
natural that the Republicans should
have been spurred to greater activity
by tbe President's death, neither Is It
ft ran go that It caused some apathy on
the other side.
There was another general cause
which the Republican position, name
ly, tbe ability of the Republicans to
get out their vote. The off-year elec
tions always show a falling off in the
voting population as compared with
Presidential and congressional elec
tions, and the party that Is best or
ganized and most successful In getting
Its voters to the polls has an advan
tage. Take, for Instance, the election
In Nebraska this year. The total vote
will probably fall fifty thousand below
the vote of last year. If there is a loss
In the Republican vole of twenty thou
sand, and a loss In tbe fusion vote of
thirty thotmand, the Republican candi
date can have ten thousand majority
more than his ticket had last year, and
yet have twenty thousand votes less
than his party polled last year.
Sometimes the gold Democrats who
bolted the ticket In 1S9G complain be
cause the regular Democrats Insist
that those who deserted the party five
years ago should, on coming bark,
give some assurance of their purpose
to support the ticket hereafter. While
the conditions imposed have never
been unreasonable or severe, they have
aroused violent criticism In some quar
ters. It may not be out of place, there
fore, to quote what the St Paul Globe
says about local bolters. In a recent
issue It condemns some St. Paul al
dermen who deserted their party In
the election of a county commissioner,

Treason to the party has not been

more In the future. Hunt and Bantz

An almost incredible story comes
from Mexico about the behavior of out
delegates to the Pan-American Confer
enc?. President Roosevelt should lose
no time in looking it up in the interest
of our national honor. An American
who has been watching the proceedings
writes from the Mexican capital:
"Ordinarily it would be considered a
distinguished honor to be asked to lead
in to supper the wife of the President.
But when this honor was offered to
the chairman of the United States dc
egatlon he simply replied that he was
tired and was going home, leaving tbe
first lady of Mexico speechless with as
tonishment, and the President unable
to find words In which to express him
The same critic adds:
"Agiiin, on the occasion of the re
ceptlon given at the department of for
elgn affairs, all the ladies of the United
States party were present but only one
was In evening dross, the others being
in various street costumes, shirt waists
and tailor gowns. This was the most
elaborate function Mexico can give,
The inevitable comment Is already
beard among the members of the best
Mexican society who thronged the
rooms of the foreign department on
that occasion that the American ladles
either think the Mexicans do not know
or do not care, or else they do not
know themselves.
"Either horn of the dilemma is awk
It Is conceivable that the ladles of
the American party might mistake the
nature of a Mexican function and go
in inanpronriate costumes, but that
the head of the delegation should of
for a gross and deliberate Insult to the
wife of the President of the sister re
public is unthinkable. A boor capable
of such conduct could never have lived
through a season in Washington with
out being found out. But it would be
well to have the facts In connection
with all these matters authoritatively
stated. Congress should Investigate.
Major General John R. Brooke,
United States Army, made a speech
Saturday evening at a dinner given by
a British society to celebrate King Ed
ward's birthday. That was his right

representative of the government of
the United States when he said:
"England bas never conquered any

Lord Kitchener has Immense difficul
ties in his way, but the flag of Eng
land will In time proclaim freedom to
all lands of South Africa. Otis, Mer
rltt. MacArthur and Chaffee have been
doing a similar duty In the Philippines,
the same duty to God and country."
It Is a ghastly mockery to speak of
the attempted destruction of two re
publics as an extension of Republican
institutions. It is an insult to com
pare Kitchener's work of havoc In
South Africa with Chaffee's work of
pacification In the Philippines. But
even If General Brooke's remarks were
not open to criticism on these points,
the fact would remain that the South
African Republft and the Orange Free
State are friendly powers, in whose
war with Great Britain our govern
ment Is neutral. It is as scandalous an
impropriety for an officer of that gov
ernment to express his gratification
over the attempt of their enemies to
conquer them as It would be to com
mend an attempt of Germany to con
quer France. Chicago American.
The New York Mail and Express is
still harping away on the old and ex
ploded argument that the value of sil
ver bullion In the dollar can be meas
ured by the value of silver bullion that
has no opportunity for coinage. The
fallacy of the argument lies In the fact
that H overlook the Increased value
of silver created by an Increased de
mand for It The free coinage law, by
giving silver access to the mint, would
create a demand for It, and this fact,
recognized by all who think, Is entire
ly disregarded by most of the advo
cates of the gold standard. It was
thought that the Sherman act of 1890,
although it provided for the purchase
of sliver Instead of Its free coinage,
would create a demand for all tbe sur
plus silver, and under the stimulus of
this demand sliver rose to 1.20 an
ounce, Secretary of Agriculture Rusk,
In bis, annual report, pointed with
pride to this Increased value which
tbe Sherman law had caused, and de
clared that agricultural products rose
with silver. The Mall and Express,
however, does not require facts. Its
theory looks better when facts are
cent out of sight. Commoner.

versify Gives an t'nblased Opinion.
In a letter to "The Farmer," St. Paul,
dated Spt. 1st, 1901, 1'ror. io5
Shaw of the Minnesota State Univer
sity bas the following to nay, after
having made a trip through Western
The capabilities nf the Immense-
area known as Western Canada are but
little understood on this side of the
line. Our people are apt to look upon
it as a region of frost and snow, a
country In which but a small portion
of the land relatively will ever be till
able, because of the rigors of the cli
mate. True, the climate is cold In win
ter, but Western Canada bas, neverthe
less, just that sort of climate whlcn
makes It tbe most reliable wheat pro
ducing country in all the continent
An Immense Area.
Western Canada is not only an Im
mense area, nut me samo uckhiiuuu
will apply to those portions of th
tountry that are capable of being suc
cessfully tilled cr grazed. Nearly all
of the prairie Province of Manitoba
can be brought under cultivation, al
though probably not one-third of It
surface has been laid open by the plow.
Assinlboia to the west is a gruln and
stock country. Saskatchewan to me-,
north of Assinlboia has high adapta-.
tion for the same. This also may be
said of Alberta to the west. Here lies
what may be termed a grain-growing
and stock producing empire, the re-
sources of which have been but little
drawn upon comparatively, viewed
from tbe standpoint of the agricultur-,
alist. When It Is called to mind that
even in the Peace River country In
Athabasca, and several hundreds of
miles north of the Canadian boundary,
wheat was grown which won a pre
mium at the World's Fair in 1803, the
capabilities of this country In wheat
production 1th m up more brightly than
even the brilliant northern lights or
the land that lies toward the pole.
Adapted to Stork and Grain Production.
The rsglon under consideration Is,
however, mainly adapted to growing
grain and grazing stock. Much of it is
adapted to growing both grain and
stock, but certain areas, especially to
wards the mountains, are only adapted
to ranching, except where irrigation
will yet be Introduced. This, of course,
can be done successfully along the
many streams that flow down from the
Rockies and water the eountry towards
the east and north. The adaptation of
the country for wheat production is of
a high character. The cool nights
that usually characterize the ripening
season are eminently favorable to the
filling of the grain, and to the secur
ing of a plump berry, and consequently
large yields. The crop this year Is a
magnificent one. In Manitoba and the
territories it should certainly give an
average of more than 20 bushels per
acre. But should the yield be not more
than 20 bushels, tbe crop will be a
most handsome one, owing to the large
area sown to wheat. Many farmers
only grow grain. But those who do
succeed as well In growing oats and
barley as In growing wheat, hence
these foods for stock should always be
abundant. Some grow cattle mainly,
and others combine tbe two. The last
named, of course. Is doubtless the saf
est of the three during a long course
of years, that Is to say, where much
farming Is practicable.
Quality of the l ive Stork.
It was a p'easurable surprise to
note the high quality of the stock.
The average of quality In cattle la
higher than the average of cattle in our
state, unless In the dairy classes. This
opinion is not reached rashly or with
out ample opportunity for Investiga
tion. I spent three long days In the
show ring at Winnipeg making tbe
awards In the ben( classes. I question
If any of our states, single handed,
could make such a showing In cattle.
It was my privilege to make the
awards at several shows and at all of
their fairs were evidences that much
attention Is given to the Improvement
of the stock. I noted carefully the
character of the herds that grazed
along the railroad and everywhere the
high average of the quality of the stock
was In evidence.
Reasons for Quality In Slock.
The quality of the grass Is good.
Many of the settlers came from On
tario and had been schooled as to the
value of good stock before going west.
The railroads end tb government
have taken a deep Interest In making
It less difficult and costly to the farm
ers to secure good males.
Those who are anxious of changing
their residence should bear in mind
that the lands In Western Canada are
many of them free and others reason
ably cheap.
