In Tlmo of renee Prepare for AVar.
Washington, Nov. 10. Admiral
Wnlkor adds his testimony to tlmt of
General 'Miles concerning tho weak
ness of tho government coast def oiircs.
"1 am n good American," said he,
"hut i cannot shut my eyes to cold
facts.. Wo are not prepared to-day to
engage In war with any first claBS
power. We aro in tho position that
Chiua occupied in her recent struggle
with .Japan. "We have a vast popula
tion, great wealth, boundless resources
ami endless patriotism, but wo cannot
maintain an offensive or dofenslvo at
titude against any one of a. half dozen
foreign countries. What lioucnil
Miles .says about tho defenseless con
dition of our coast cities is entirely
coircct. It is true that Now Yorlc and
San Francisco aro better protected
than our other commercial cities, but
even they would bo helpless against
tho assaults of a dozen powerful
iron clads. So far as tho re
maining cities aro concerned they
have no protection whatever.
Congress ought to mako liboral
appropriations for coast defenses, and
for additional ships of war. Moro
than anything olso wo need a strong
navy. If wo had a dozen battleships
of tho Indiana class on tho Atlantic
coast wo could defy as powerful a
maritime country as Great Hritnin.
Wo have now four battleships build
ing and two others liavo been appro
priated for. Wo need at least mjven
more. With anything like a fair sys
tem of coast defenses wo would be be
yond tho probabilities of war. There
would bo no moro Corinto incidents;
no more talk of foreign aggressions on
American soil. The United States
would be pre-eminent on tho American
continent. The greatest preventive
against war is to be fully prepared
THE BIBLE IN SCHOOLS.
A St rone Movement Toward Tills End In
Chicago, Nov. 10. A petition bear
ing HO.Ooo signatures, and asking that
tho reading of tho llible be restored to
the public schools will bo presented
soon to the board of education. It
was circulated by tho Woman's Edu
cational Union of Chicago. The union
held a meeting last night to consider
the outlonk for the movement. Re
ports from tho committee having
charge of the petition were encourag
ing, und it was announced that mat
ters were in such n slinpo that thu doc
ument could bo presented to tho board
of education in a short time.
Sirs. C V. Kimball read vs. paper on
tho subject of reading the bible in the
public schools, and giving a history of
the work done by tho union blnco'tho
organization in 1SS0, Sho quoted
letters of indorsement from Mgr.
hatolli and many other prominent
and lugh churchmen. There were
also letters from IJlshop Fallows,
President Uogers of the Northwestern
university and President Harper
of the Chicago univcra'ty. In his let
ter Mgr. Satolli expressed solicitude
for the movement und indorsed the
past liibo of the uuion, expressing
himself as 'n favor of reading selected
portions of tho bible. 'I would like
to say," said Mrs. Kimball, "that wo
have received a great many communi
cations from tho Catholic clergy, and
in nq instance havo they opposed tho
move, so long as it is strictly non
sectarian in its nature."
It is the plan of tho union to select
passages of Scriptmo for uso in tho
public schools, which shall bo entirely
noi, -sectarian. Tho selections aro to
be made by a committee composed of
different rolicious denominations.

Kansas Citv, Mo., Nov, 10. It will
not be long before a man may speak
into a telephone in Kansas City words
which will bo heard in New York,

TO DISCUSS IRRIGATION.
Approaching Convention to ho Held nt
Sidney, NoU, Nov. 10. Hon. L A.
Fort, president of tho State Irrigation
association, was here, giving directions
about tho third Rnnunl convention to
bo held hero December 18 and 10. Tho
oxccutlvo committco iu charge of nil
preparations for tho entertainment of
visitors is working hard und leaving
nothing undone. It is expected that
more than COO delegntcs will bo pres
ent, besides hundreds of visitors. The
railroads will mako cheap rates and
many will come hero to seo tho prac
nl demonstration of irrigation. Invita
tions will be sent to all tho county and
municipal bodies in tho state, irriga
tion associations, nnd all nowspapors.
Colordo and Wyoming will send emi
nent speakers, Nebraska's orators will
bo fully represented, nnd a Hood of ex
cellent" thoughts will bo brought out,
showing tho value of united action
upon this important enterprise. Thou
sands of dollars will be expended in
western Ncbrabka the coining year
upon wind mill and pump irrigation.
The largo canal companies aro nlrendy
reaping tho bonetlts of their work and
tho valleys aro producing vast amounts
of tho necessaries of life.
It is a revelation to visit an irrigated
farm arid seo what nature can unfold
when supplied with Wator. Tho wntor
wasted every year in the Platte valley
would irrigate 5,000,000 acres of land.
Tho coming convention will bo a
thorough educator and will demon
strato to tho people how to utilizo this
vast body of water, which at tho pres
ent timo benefits no one.
With only a small effort tho farmer
can bo educated and taught how to
handle tho water. There will bo
plenty of liotol accommodations. Tho
ladies of Cheyenne county aro also on
listed in the cause and will endeavor
to entertain with a lavish hand.

of tho Interior for several years. Moro
interest centers about the recommend

tho settlement of tho Pacific railroad
debts than anything clso. It is

Omaha to the Pacific ocean, and that
ho thinks such a line can bo oper
ated to advantage. Some time ago
ho held up all patents of lands to tho
Pacific railroads which wero bond
nided amounting to 7,000,000 acres.
Whether this is an indication that ho
intends to make Some radical recom
mendations to Congress is not known,
but it is a, fact that he has been secur
ing statistics relative to tho earnings
of the roads and their capacity to earn
enough to pny a moderate interest
upon tho present indebtedness. It is
expected that Congress will undertake
to legislate upon tho subject of the
Pacific railroads' indebtedness durintr
the coming session, nnd the Secretary
will no doubt recommend a plan of

CoxatAxtinoit.k, Nov. 14. It is now
believed that tho powers will not tako

nil tho naval Bqundrons sluill havo as
sembled in Turkish wnters, which will
be about tho tlmo that tho British am
bassador, Sir Philip Currio, returns
after consulting with his government
as to tho futuro notion of Great Bri

suspenso is decidedly wearying, nnd
the ambassadors themselves will bo
greatly relieved when tho hour for ac
tion on tho part of Europo arrives.
That this time is coming now seems to
be only a question of days.
Thcro seems to bo no doubt that tho
spirit of revolution Is spreading evon
nmong tho old Turks, nnd the young
Turkish party is said to bo rlpo for ro
volt. Tho army needs money for pay,
equipment and provisions," and tho
same stnto of affairs prevails in tho
navy, liut tho arrears of pay aro not
forthcoming, and there is much grum
bling In consequence, except nmong
the palaco troops, which are kept woil
fed, well paid and comfortably idle,
for upon them depends tho safety of
the Sultan, who is in hourly drend of
assassination. Under tlico circum
stances it is not astonishing that tho
army and navy nro becoming disaf
fected, and nobody would bo as
tonished to hear that they had sldod

uprising tako plnco.
Replying to tho inquiry of Unitod
States Minister Alexander W. Terrell,
as to the safety of tho American mis

telegraphed from Ilarput saying that
the missionaries are alive but in ex

formed Tewfik Pasha that tho govern

safety of tho Americans. Tho Turk

As Mr. Terrell has great iniluenco

a very strong representation on tho

A squadron of flvo Frencli warships

CARLISLE FOR JUDGE.
ald t6 Ituvo Ticen Selected for tho Sn
prcuio IScneli to Succeed Jackson.
Washington, Nov. 1 4. It is rumored
in well informed administration cir
cles that Secretary Carllslo is to be
appoiutcd to tho supremo bench to
succeed Justice Jnckson. Tho plan to
name Judge Peckhamof New York has
been changed by the recent elcctioiif.
Had Kentucky elected a Democratic
legislature, it was confidently expect
od that Mr. Carlisle would, on
tho fourth of March, 1807, atep
from tho Cabinet into tho Senate.
Tiiis anticipation can not now
be realized. Tho political revolu
tion in Kentucky hn3 also ma
terially affected Mr. Carlisle's chances
for tho presidential nomination, as
well as greatly reduced tho advlsabll
ity of being a candidate with tho odds
so largely against tho Democrats.
Under theso circumstances tho politi
cal futuro has littlo attraction for Mr.
Carlisle, bcsldci which his tastes and
desires lead him naturally to a judicial
position. Ho has been so loyal to tho
President, even to tho extent of sacri
ficing to bonio extent his prcstigo in
his own State, that his appointment to
the Supreme court would not be ques
tioned. Curtis of Kamai for Iteod.

It is stated that this sum is too small

Tho route ns proposed by tho com

four miles longer than that which tho

Hcndx nnd Tall of Animal.
Judging from tho number of small
beasts' heads neon on tho winter trap
pings, ono would lmaglno thoro had
been wholesalo slaughtering during tho
summer. In many cases, as, indeed,
in almost all of them, theso small
heads, wjth their knowing ears and
eyes, nro tho productions of skillful
manufacturers, but so llko tho genuine
littlo beasts as to dccelvo many people.
Theso heads aro used not only as clasps
on fur capes, collarettes or muffs, but
as fasteners on cloth jacket fronts, as
ornaments on street frocks and often
as bat decorations. Tails como next in
favor, and adorn muffs, collarettes,
often wholo collarettes aro composed of
them; and one often sees them lying
sedately on the brim of a smart hat.
The head of the ermine Is seldom seen;
that is, tho genuine article for the tiny
animal is quite scarce, making the fur
