Momentous New Krn.
We are entering upon a new and mo
mentous era that calls Tor the highest
iu:ilitles or constructive statesmanship.
The movement must be broadly rounded
nml firmly and Intelligently managed. We
are planning, not for ourselves but for
future geiioaiitinns, for We are the fori1'
fathers of n mighty future In u mighty
laud. If we are eiiial to our duty and
our opportunities, we shall make homes
for a hundred million or the freest men
who ever walked the earth.
We are living in an ace or mighty
Achievement. Ktigiuccritig works which
the lust generation would have thought
nil impossibility will be the completed
task of this generation. The New York
tnihwny, the great tunnel of the I'onn
njlinhi railroad, the Isthmian canal and
the Salt River reservoir in Arizona and
other mauiiuoth irrigation projects will
faioii stand as completed monuments to
the constructive senilis ot our people and
this ago. The future Is potent witli still
grander undertakings which will, in u
few brief years, also stand as accom
plished facts. Fgypl was for centuries
the. granary of the world. That hind of
mystery nnd romance was the cradle of
our civilization, For countless ages the
Nile has risen annually, to fertilize the
land which has yielded, from year to
year, the sustenance or teeming millions.
O rent est location nf the Ace.
The question of irrigation which now
confronts the people of the I'liiteil States
is one of the most important of the ago.
It is or more importance than the Isth
mian canal or u deep waterway to the
ea. It involves the solution or the ror
st and tlond problem. It embraces the
future Internal development of the I'ult
d States, It will reiuilre years or work
to perfect the syMein or national irrltru

the wise citizen should reach out and
sei.e whatever remedy may be within
his reach ami apply it so that nil the
years to come may be free from fear ami
disturbing torces such ns are always at
work in every nation. That remedy ap
pears to be, to put the balance of our
population back on the laud nnd keep it
there. There seems to lie no other rem
edy. The mull who has his homo upon
mother earth, the man who draws his
IIvIiik straight fro a: nature's granary, the
man who Is rree from nil the uncertain
ties or a wage earner's employment, the
mail who gathers his wife nnd children
around his own hearthstone and gets his
living by his own labor from his own
laud, Is the anchorage of this country. It
behooves our statesmen to rise to tlio
occasion nml imbue the American people
with a patriotic determination to turn
the balauiv of our population back to
the laud and plant It there with homes
that no social upheaval can ever disturb.
This will safeguard this, uutioti lor all
years to come.

The nation has land for every nun

Visible increase iu American tonnage
In trade between the Asiatic iO.ist and
the i'aeilie coist is beyond the concep
tion or the ordinary cituen. Tills trans
portation issue concerns the merchant,
the manufacturer and the mechanic or
the Atlantic States, the Middle States
and the f.ir West as well as the I'aeilie
coast. These merchants, manuhcturcrs
and mechanic have the same Interest iu
the Asiatic trade that they have in tin

the greater the iI.mu in.l for the industrial

In u way the merchants, manufactur

the 1'acllie coast States. Increased trade
with Asia, especially an increased de

how these values, when once created,

The Postmaster Oeneral iu his iiuiiual

WHAT IS TO BE WILL BE

The Asiactlc notions have lived upon

r.ud the Teutonic races have for some
generations lived upon Hour. It has
become standard within the last year or
two, that nt least one of the Asiaetie
nations his come to live upon Hour.
Those desperate little fighters, the .lap
nnese, hnve taken to hard tack, as did
our own American fighters during the
Civil War. as a part of their subsistence,
and the Name regard ns to whatever is
made Train our wheat has already ex
tended, in a measure, to the more vast
Asiatic empire or China. That clever
correspondent. William K. Curtis, speak
ing or the. extent to which our Hour is
nlrendy used by Japan, says:
While the Imports or flour within the
Inst year or so liae been much greater
tlinn ever before on account of the prepa
rations for war, nevertheless there Is rea
son to expect a continued expansion of the
innrkct Japanese families generally are
beginning to use wheat Hour for various
purposes Nearly everv household In now
using II to make the little cakes and sweet
meats which they use with their ten sev
eral times n day In large quantities. A
still linger amount or u cheaper quality Is
need Tor paste liy the manufacturers of
screens, umbrellas, fans anil other alleles
nf that kind. Since the wnr liegnn hard
bread has been Introduced Into the tinny as
nn nlteruate rntlon with rice. The soldiers
icllrli the variety: hard-tack Is easy lo
handle mid carry, the uutrlthc alue of a
pound of Hour Is equal to that or n pound
or lice, and It costs less. The Japanese
exHiit their best flee to I'rniice, i:uglnnd
and I'hlmi, wheie II brings big prices, lielug
or the erv highest grade. They Import
vast quantities or cheaper rice for the con
sumption of the coolies nml the hiliollug
class from Keren, llurmah. China, Singa
pore nml othir purls of the l-Iust Indies.
It Is entliely praellcalile to substitute
cheap brands of Hour for this low-xrudc
lice, and It will be easy to do so when
the soldleis come home with their ttppc
tiles for liard-taek and wheat bread.
Could there be, under any circum
stances or conditions, expressed a vaster
idea of the enormous trade relations thut
must henceforth exist between America
nml the Asiatic countries! America
produces bread. The Asiatics have learn
ed to cat bread with the rest of the
world. Wc are going to tuipply them
with It. We have to ship It ncross the
Pacific Ocean over the commercial path
way which we have made and beue.it li
which underlies our cable system. There
Is nothing In the world that can stop
the Asiatic demand for the wheat prod
ucts of the United States, and the wheat
products nt the I'nlted Stages have made
this country, to n great extent, the tre
mendous power It Is.
They talk about "Imperialism!" There
Is no "Imperialism!" This continent is
producing what the rest of the world
needs, and the Inhabitants ot this con
tinent, under the rule or Republican ad
ministration, associated with other intel
ligent governments on either sjde, pro
pose to supply Asia with theo prod
Hits that Asia needs. The fact that
the United States has completed Its
pathway across the vast ocean and has
its intermediate stations, mid Its posse
sions close to the Asiatic coasts, is but
an incident of event which are part
of the industrial history or I lie world.
Does anyone Imagine that the present
majority or the American people are go
ing to neglect their ostensible duty, not
merely to themselves but to another por
tion or the human race'.' They will
hardly do It.
This Is but talking of the products of
the wheat Holds tint Asia now demands.
H has nothing to do with iron ami steel
mid the thousand and one other prod
ucts or all our fields and all our facto
ries which they will otherwise demand.
This Is but rereirius: to the simple uT
fair nf one fciugle product, but it U
eunuch to afford, an illiutr.itiou.
And yet they talk abtut "Imperial
ism!" There is no "Imperialism." We
arc but brothers who are going to as
sist in reeding the rest of our brothers
or the world; to give them the benefits of
It nil and to reap ourselves the benefits
of it all. To submit to anything else
would be silly. It Is but :i problem of
com moil sense.
Hz port of Manufactures.
Figures recently issued by the Depart
ment or Commerce ami Iibor nt Wash
ington show that during the month ot
duly last our exports of manufactures
amounted to $10,000,000. against ,$:il,.
000,000 of agricultural products. During
June the exports or manufactures were
nearly St'J.OOO.OOO. against S,'t7-.00,000
of agricultural products. This is the lir.st
time iu the history or the country that
the exports or manufactures hare ex
ceeded those or the rami. This does not
mean that the exports or farm products
are railing oft', but that those of nianii
fuctiires have greatly increased. This is
due to n protective turlff which, while It
benefits American manufactures, also in
cteases the home demand ror American

When the veterans or the Civil War
wero with tien. tirant before Richmond
or with Sherman mnrehliig to the sea, n
Democratic national convention declared
the war u failure and demanded a dis
honorable peace. When the business

or nil classes were battling ror sound
money and the gold standard the Demo-
rutlc party, as an organization, was
clamoring ror Tree silver at 10 to 3.
When the Republican party was contend

turers and workmen, Its opponents wero
advocating u policy destructive to both.
What good thing has the Democratic
party ever Hone, anyhow V

Admitting that the gold standard is "Ir
