J'ornkcr has made a reply to the 10-
( cnt njccph at Ann Arbor , Mich. , of
lontier President Harrison , In which
Mr. Harrison criticised thn Porto
Rlcan policy of the government , char
acterizing It as a deinrturo from cor
rect principles. In a uptech before the
Mamittieturers' club of thin city lutu
night Senator Foiiker said on this
All the questions arising under the
Porto Rlcan legislation are soon to bo
[ mscil upon by the supreme court. For
that icascn I do not care to discuss
them at this time , but It la In order to
Bay that the view taken by congress , as
reflected by that legislation , was crcl- (
itnblo to the generosity , patriotism and
th6 industrial spirit of the American
[ icoplc. Wo found Porto Rico'as poor
an poverty could make her. She had , no
money , no credit , no syntem of taxation
of any kind. She wanted a civil gov-
sinmcnt and a revenue to tmnpoit It.
We gave her a far moro llbsral civil
government than wan over given to
any territory prior to the civil war ,
so far las participation In It by her
.icoplo Is concerned , and wo deajt by
icr moro generously In providing sup-
iort for that government than wo
invo over yet dealt with any territory.
Jn requiring her to pay tariff duties
on Imports from foreign countries we
did only what we did with Louisiana ,
Florida , California and all our other
territories ; but In allowing her to put
these duties , when collected , Into her
own treasury for the support of her
local government , wo did what was
never done before for , anybody else ;
for In all other cases wo have not
only required the payment of these
same duties , but wo have also re
quired them , when they were col
lected , to bo paid , Into the national
treasury at Washington for the com
mon benefit of the whole country , and ,
an to duties on commerce between
Porto Rico and the United States , we
did not levy 15 per cent , but wo re
mitted 85 per cent of the existing
on a number of articles , and the whole
duty on til the rest , and provided that
the 15 per cent should be remitted af
ter March 1 , 1002 , or sooner if the
legislature of Porto Rico shall pro
vide , nnd that in the meanwhile all
collections of 15 per cent b"th there
nnd in the United 'States , shall be
paid over to Porto Rico for her own
support. Wo made this provision be
cause It was the best and least bur
densome way possible to ralso Indis-
pciiBlblo revenue for their govorn-
nnd not because it was in any sense of
Jmy benefit to either our government
or other people.
The Porto Rlcan legislature Is now
In session , but neither that bpdy nor
any member of It , nor anybody else ,
has taken any stop to repeal or alter
the tax system so Imposed by con
gress. On the contrary , all testify
nllko to the highest satisfaction with
what congress has done , and the re
quest will bo almost unanimously
made that the provisions enacted
may bo continued , If not indefinitely ,
at least until some satlsfactoVy sys
tem of proper taxation may be sub
In addition , it should bo stated that
congress , also in the same generous
nplrlt , exempted Porto Rico from all
internal revenue taxation another
favor never before extended to any
part qf our people nnywhero. Yes , it
Is true that the legislation for Porto
Rico was a "departure , " but It Is not
true that It was a "departure from
correct principles. "

LINCOLN , Dec. 31. The State Ll-
brnry association met here1 In conjunct
tlon with the teachers' association.
There were ten libraries represented.
The first impor was read by P'rof. W ,
K. Jlllson , librarian of the Doano college -
lego library. Mips Dennis of the hin-
coln city library read a paper on "Li
brary Co-operation In Lincoln. " She
urged the systematic planning of the
development and management of Lin
coln libraries , so that each may com
plement the other.
Mr. Brigham cautioned the Nebraskans -
kans against making the mistake of
getting a library commission 'with ' no
means of support , as has been done
lu. Georgia , Kansas and New Jersey.
Ho naid :
"No state can afford to lot n popu
lar demand for libraries dlo out for
want of sustenance. No state can af
ford to let the library movement with
in Its borders fritter away In vain
attempts on the part of benevolent but
financially weak organizations to per
form educational functions which do
not properly belong to them. The
duty of the state to lester and develop
free public libraries Is quite as Im
perative as Is the duty of the sate
to foster and develop free public
schools. The reasoning which lies at
the base of our public school system
also sustains the superstructure of that
system the public library. If It Is
worth anything to the state to have
an educated citizenship , it Is worth
moro to have a well-bred , intelligent ,
happy , home-loving citizenship ; and
what moro directly to the purpose than
the free public library ? The schools
that cost us so much money and are
worth far moro than they cost on-
fortunately lose their hold upon a
largo majority of the children of the
state before they reach the critical ago
of 15. A vital question for the citizen
Is : Should the education which makes
for good citizenship cease at the very
point at which the serlous'buslncss of
life first projects itself upon the young
mind ? Statistics everywhere confirm
the conclusions of the crlmlnologista
that the blossoming period of crimin
ality 7d between twenty an < l thirty
years of ago and the criminal's train
ing years are from the first conscious
ness of manhqod and womanhood ,
early In the teens , to that dangerous
period of action beginning early in the
twenties. The community that has
nothing to offer the young but the
licensed saloon and the regularly-fined
and therefore virtually licensed broth
el and makes no move for the enrich
ment of community life through the
entertaining , Instructing , reforming
and elevating influence of good liter
ature deserves its heavy expense bill
for criminals anijl paupers and also
deserves the disgraceful record and
awful consequences of criminality. The
state that makes no effort to induce
communities to raise the standard of
citizenship by placing the Incentives
to high thinking ana right living
within the easy reach of all is throw
ing away the opportunity of the ages. "
