A SENSIBLE CRUSADE.
You may have observed recently
that Catholic societies in many cities
have started a war'against profanity.
It is a movement which.) should have
the encouragement of all people, re
gardless of what church they belong to
or whether ..they belonged to any.
Profanity hasn't much of an excuse
for itself, and there.are plenty of rea
sons for avoiding its use. It not only
oilends other people, butrchcapens the
man who resorts to it It is said some
times that profanitv acts, as a sort of
safety valve in times of great stress or
anger. Perhaps it does in a way, but
there are many better, ways; a far bet
ter way is to learn to avoid the anger
which might prompt it. There aren't
many more valuable assets than per
fect control of the temper and polite
ness; these things are well worth striv
ing for, and, when they are attained,
the use for profanity'fpasses, for, even
if you fail to feel the sacrilege of pro
fanity, you will not, if you are polite,
risk ofFending others by its use. And
if you never get angry except on the
rare occasions when you have ample
and righteous cause, you will not miss
the oaths which form so important a
part of the vocabulary of the man who
"flies to pieces easily." A great many
men and a few women can afford to
help the Catholic societies a little in
and incidentally help

Mark Twain was a firm believer in
the national movement for good roads.
A Hartford man recalled the other
day this experience of the famous hu
morist: "I once had thirty miles" so Mark
Twain began "to go by stage in Mis
sissippi. The roads were terrible, for
it was early spring. The passengers
consisted of live men and three women
three large, well developed women,
swathed in shawls and veils, who kept
to themselves,?talking in low tones,on
the rear seat.
"Well, we hadn't gone a mile before
the stage got stuck two feet in the
black mud. Down jumped every man
of us, and for ten minutes we tugged
and jerked and pulled till we got the
stage out of the hole.
"We had hardly got our breath
back when the stage got stuck again,
and again we had to strain our very
hearts out to release her. In covering
fifteen miles we got stuck eight times;
and in going the whole thirty we lifted
that old stage out of the mud seventeen
times by actual count.
"We five passengers were wet, tired
and filthv when we reached our desti

Turn to your United States histories
and read there the story of the first
siege of Richmond, the battles of
Bloody Lane, Peach Orchard, Mal
vern Hill and a dozen others, the re
treat of the federal army upon Wash
ington, and the tremendous confusion
and lack of system which prevailed
throughout the campaign, both with
the union and confederate troops, and
you find there the best answer possible
to the people who insist that the United
States needs no army; that it can
muster troops and prepare to fight
with any power on earth after war has
That campaign illustrated the fact
that it takes time to train an army.
Had the union army in that cam
paign been thoroughly drilled and
prepared for the great battles in which
it was engaged, it might have driven
the confederates back into Richmond,
and ended the war. Instead of that
the conflict raged for years afterward,
and at tremendous cost.
The report of Secretary of War
Dickinson, which has just been made
public, calls attention to the fact that
in case the United States should be
called upon to go to wat with some
first class power, such as Germany,
Japan or England, it would be almo.-t
helpless for a long time, in case the
enemy was able to make a landing on
American soil with an expedition of
It would be difficult, if not impos-i-ble,
to prevent such a landing. The
coast line is too long to make it possi
ble for the fleet to guard all points at
once. It might be possible to destroy
the convoying battleships if the Amer
ican fleet could find them, but it is
very doubtful whether the invading
fleet could be caught before it had
landed the hostile army on the coast.
The chief object of a power like
Germany or Japan, in case of war,
would be to laud troops on the Amer
ican coast, and sweep the country far
According to the army experts, the
country should be prepared to put into
the field an army of 450,000 men on
ten days' notice, as a "first line of
defense." It is figured that with a
force of this size ready to come to the
colors the first quick attack of the
enemy could be repulsed and the
nation would then be practically im
pregnable, because no nation can hone
to conquer a eountrj like this if the
country is given time to prepare itself
The millions of armed men in
Europe or in Japan are of no great
menace to us except in their power to
strike so quickly that we ate unpre
pared to parry the blow. We would
be obliged under present conditions to
oppose such a force with a scattered
regular army of about 50,000 and
100,000 state militia who are ill pre
pared for service as "minute men."
And it would take time to collect
this unmatured array; it would be im
possible to pit them at once against the
veterans of Japan or the seasoned sol
diers of Germany.
me qiieoiion is wnetner it is not a
good plan to take out insurance
against a repitition of such misfortunes
as followed the firstseige of Richmond
by preparing a reserve army of suffi
cient size to be able to respond quickly
and effectively to a call to arm?.
Army men seem to be unanimous in
the opinion that such a course is the
only safe policy, and in the secretary

nary success comes more from the
manner of its operation than from the
nature of the organization. The
Tammany leaders have learned in their
century of experience just how far
they can go in giving favors to groups
of people with a large number of votes
without antagonizing other and larger
groups. The disaster following the
Tweed experience of forty years ago
has made them cautious about attack
ing the tax payers too openly. They
therefore hare developed an elaborate
system of distributing official patron
age and social and political assistance
among the submerged classes and the
immigrants that enables them to swing
an enormous number of votes at the
polls. This compact following gives
them control of the local democratic
organization nearly all of the time,
and through the old system of straight
party voting this puts them in control
of the city more times than the
thoughtful citizens of New York like
to contemplate. Since the office of
mayor was made elective in 1834,
Tammany has had that place nearly
two-thirds of the time.
The fire, it may be added, did not
even wipe out the building. The
tentacles of Tammany which reach I
down into every block in the great
city were therefore not even scorched.

CUMMINS AND LAFAYETTE
WHAT TAMMANY IS.
It may surprise some newspaper
readers to learn through the report of
a small fire in New York that Tain-manj-
hall is a real building. It is in
fact one of the landmarks of the city,
a plain, old fashioned structure on
East Fourteenth street. This hall,
erected forty-three years ago, is the
home of the Tammany hall organiza
tion, which has had a continuous
existence of more than one hundred
years. It wa3 one of the number of
patriotic societies formed toward the
close of the eighteenth century, all of
them more or Itss associated with the
Sons of Liberty. A number of these
organizations bore the name of Ta
manend, a famous Indian chief of the
seventeenth century, and from this
was derived the title of Tammany.
One hundred and five vears azro the
Saint Tammany or Columbian order
was regularly incorporated as a fra
ternal society, after it had enjoyed an
informal existence of about sixteen
years. The order soou entered politics,
and while the fraternal society still
exists the political organization that
has grown up around it is by far the
most important machine of its kind in
the United States.
Tammany has a closely knit organ
ization, extending down from the man
or group of men in supreme control to
the district leaders in charge of assem
bly districts, and the captains in
charge of the election districts. Com

LaFayette Young was appointed
senator from Iowa to succeed tempor
arily the late Senator Dolliver.
Mr. Young is a distinguished pub
licist and an orator of national repute.
He is also classed as a regular republican.
For that reason, and before Mr.
Young has taken the oath of office,
Senator Cummins has declared war
upon his colleague. He proclaims
that any member of the Cummins in
surgent faction is more worthy to be
senator than LaFayette Young.
All will remember how Albert B.
Cummins, on the eve of the recent
election, w:th panic in his looks and
tears in his voice, stood on a public
platform here in Chicago, swallowed
his so called principles, and implored
his hearers to forget everything and
vote for any and every caudidate
wearing any sort of republican label.
It is quite in character for such a
moral coward before election to play
the blatant bully when the election is
over and he finds that his own hide,
however scarred, is still on his bones.
The Cummins declaration of war
against all Iowa republicans unwilling
to be his henchmen and grovel at his
feet shows why the insurgent move
ment h failing and was bound to fail.
Its chief, like Mr. Cummins, have
no use for associates. They desire
only slaves. They do not aim to be
leaders, but masters. And the repub
licans of most American states will
never suffer such an ignominy.
An American political party can
never be made of one despot and a
herd of serfs. The plan may have
succeeded for the time in Wisconsin,
but Wisconsin is not the whole coun
try. Mr. Roosevelt learned the differ
ence in New York.
In other states republicans feel that
they arc first American citizens, and
that, above and before everything else,
they are free men. Chicago Inter-Ocean.

a fight they had when Jim Corbett
beat John L. Sullivan for the champ
ionship of the world.
The ten thousand men packed iu the

There was a little clapping of hands
when Corbett entered the ring, for there
were a few spectators who had bet on

believed was a hopeless encounter and

moments of consciousness. He smiled

cheered and howled and shrieked and

short little bow and sat down in his
corner. He glared over at Corbett
for two reasons: 1 , he felt himself so

world that he hated any one who dar

knew that the glare generally took the

Jack Sheppard as a Text.
Jack Sheppard had a great hold upon
the imagination of the people of his
time. The fact that 200,000 people wit
nessed his execution at Tyburn on
Nov. IS. 1724. "unon the trwthnr honra
twelve times a yeare" is some witness
to his grim popularity. But one of the
strangest tributes ever paid him was
the sermon preached upon him in a
"Oh. that ye were all like Jack Shep

human being would dare to treat John
L. like that and hope to live? Impos
sible. Something of the same sort,
much intensified, must have passed
through the great man's mind, for his
glare now became a scowl of fierce
malignity before which the strongest
must quail. But Corbett did not
know how lo quail. When, iu con
formity with cu.-tom, he advanced to
shake hands iu the middle of the rinjr,
he still regarded Sullivan with his su
John L. was raging. That huge
bulk of his seemed to throw off hate in
vibrations, and the corners of his mouth
snarled downward as he came face to
face with his adversary. Corbett,
twenty pounds lighter and three inches
taller than his enemy, smiled down up
on him patronizingly. This was too
much. When they clasped hands
Corbett quickly grabbed Sullivan's
fingers, squeezed and wrenched them
as hard as he could, aud then disdain
fully threw the hand aside. That is
the way John usually crusheil the spirit
of his antagonist, but this bold young
upstart had actually beaten him at his
own game. Not only that, but he
grimaced exultingly in John's face,
and then, as he walked off, turned and
grinned mockingly while he uttered
some sucering phrase which, of course,
none of us outsiders could hear. That
moment, it seemed to me, witnessed
the most daring act of Corbett's life.
Surely it would have been safer to
have put his hand iu a lion's mouth
and twisted the lion's tongue than to
take such liberties with Sullivan, the
destroyer of men. No other human
being had ever dared to think of such
a thing, much less try it. Moreover,
when he returned to his corner he
pointed at Sullivan and made jokes
about him that caused Bill Brady and
Delaney and the others to explode with
Corbett's taunt was delivered with
the deliberate purpose of jarring Sulli
van off his mental poise (."getting his

fully succeeded, for when the bell clan

The first physical encounter was a fas

head down and neck arched, more
than ever like a mad bull. As he
came close, Corbett, seemingly without
It was not until the third round that
Corbett felt safe in replying to the
enemy's fire, and then he leaped only
half as far back as usual, crouched low
and drove his long, lean left arm
straight up in a piston-like blow that
made the first thud against Sullivan's
mouth, jarring his head back, puffing
the lips and drawing blood. The ex
pression of hate and baffled fury in the
champion's face at that moment would
have scared most men out of the ring;
its only effect on Corbett was to in
crease the width of his grin. Now he
was convinced that he could hit Sulli
van while Sullivan could not hit him.
The rest of the battle was a mere mat
ter of care and endurance,
Barring accident the battle was al
ready ended, yet every moment of the
contest was full of thrills; for again
and again Sullivan's blow came within
an inch of destroying his mocking
young adversary. I was reminded of
the hairbreadth escapes of the matador,
of the miraculous deliverance of Victor
Hugo's man who struggled on the roll
ing deck with the loose cannon, of a
score or more of near-tragedies.
But the end was at hand in the
twenty-first. Sullivan came out on
tottering legs, but he was on the ag
gressive, still charging on the foe.
Corbett drove left and right into the
body and Sullivan's arm dropped
limp. Corbett turned loose a rapid
fire of left and right hooks short,
round-arm blows on the jaws.
Sullivan wavered, dropped, sprawled
on the ground. In five seconds he was
up, only to be sent down in a shorter
time. Five seconds later he was up
again, only to be battered down a
third time. He tried hard, but he
couldn't get up. Slowly the referee's
rising and falling arm told off the fatal
ten seconds. The greatest battle in
the history of the ring was ended.
