NEW LONDOX, Conn.. Oct. 12. Report
04 addresses on mictions occupied the
attention of the delegate at this morning's
melon of the convention of the American
Missionary association.
la an address on Indian and A lank an ml.
Ions Rev. Dwlght M. Pratt, D. D., of Cin
cinnati affirmed that the Indian ran never
be redeemed and uplifted and fitted for the
duties and responsibility of clt.lzentb.lp by
the civil government.
The vast sums expended by the govern
ment for this purpose In the last I'jirty
years, he said In effect, bad accomplished
but little. The Indian today Is as much a
ward of the nation as he was a generation
ago. If the Indian Is ever to be educated
to citizenship and Christian manhood, If be
Is ever to be emancipated from the nursery
and from bis awaddilng clothes and made
an Independent and constructive factor In
our national life. It must be through just
such vital and effective work as Is done by
this association.
Rev. II. A. Ilrldgeman of Massachusetts
spoke on m lflon in Porto Rico. He said
that modern- missionary onterprlso and
American Christianity. were on trial in that
island. It, governors, be averred, -com
home and paint, la reseate colors the prog
ress of American . Ideas, the eagerness of
the people for self-government and. their
growing efficiency therein.
But, be continued, ask a Christian leader
like Dr. C. J. Ryder, who has spent weeks
Investigating moral conditions not only in
the seaports, but in the mountain districts,
to teU you what he baa seen and beard and
the moral statue of the people will seem
Centuries of misrule, the exactions of an
oppressive and often Immoral ecclesiastical
system, the baneful Influences of a soft
tropical climate have produced a people,
Inert, childish, ignorant aud impure. Amer
ican Christianity has a big task before it
and one demanding the generous outlay of
money and not less generous offering of
consecrated personality.

John C. Calhoun expressed the popular
notion when he said that if a negro could
conjugate the Greek verbs he would be
willing to admit him to brotherhood. Some
time ago I stood by his moss covered tomb
In Charleston and thought of what he said.
Could I call him up tonight I could tell of
young negroes In the Carolines who could
conjugate Greek Verbs with as much fa
cility as his closer kin. I would tell him of
negroes In Harvard, Yale and Chicago uni
versities who can conjugate that verb with
as much accuracy as he. Moreover, I could
tall him of a negro who has written a Greek
.book which has found his way to Harvard
that Calhoun never did. Today nobody
doubts the -negro's ability to learn.
What Douglas has done in eloquence,

PHILADELPHIA. Oct. 22. Two Important
topics were discussed at today's sessions of
the missionary council of the Protestant
Episcopal church.
The first, which consumed the morning
fission, concerned the desirability of a
change ' in the missionary canon of the
church. The principal speakers were Bishop
Satterlee of Washington and Bishop Brewer
of Moutans.
Th second referred to the need for ad
ditional mission workers and how to meet
It, addresses being made by Bfebop Cam
eron Mann of North Dakota, Rev. J. C.
Roper of the General Theological seminary,
sod Rev. L. B. Ridley of China.
Bishop Satterles In discussing the first
advanced many reasons why a change would
be beneficial. In his opinion the restric
tions placed upon the council hampered it.
New conditions had arlsed and new methods
should be devised to meet them.
Bishop Brewer argued against change,
as he believed the organization was satis
Ths subject of mission workers, discussed
at the afternoon session, brought out nu

PORTLAND. Me., Oct. 22. Much time
was devoted to two Important resolutions
by the national Woman's Christian Tem
perance union here today. Both were
adopted. The first wss In effect:
That we stand committed to the rrlndple
and practice of compulsory scientific tem

Americanists Hear Interesting- Pa
pers on Customs of Nebraska
NEW YORK, Oct. 22. Miss Alice C.
Fletcher of Pesbody museum. Harvard uni
versity, Tvho for four year has been in
vestigating the ceremonies and ritual of
the Ptwnees, read a paper on the Pawnees
before the Americanists today.
She said the tribe was locsted In Ne
braska and divided into four bands, who
always built their villages In definite geo
graphical locations to each other.
The Skldl band was divided into number
of villages and each village possessed sym
bolic articles believed to have been given
by as many different stars. ' The village
of the Skldl reflected the position of their
atars In the heavens.
Everything to ths Pawnees was either
male or female. Thus, the shrine of the
west was feminine; so, too, was that of the
yellow star of the northwest, which was
first tn order of leadership. Next came the
masculine star In the southeast, the white
feminine star in the southwest and closed
with the black masculine star in the north
east. The care of these ' shrines was do-
puted to a- woman, the knowledge of Its
rituals and ceremonies to a man.
Dr. O. A. Dorsey of the Field Columbian
museum Of Chicago followed with an ac
count of the sun dance among the Pawnees.
When the thunder crashed in spring It
meant that the god Tl Ra Wa bad returned
from darkness.
The swan neck and head used symbolized
the world, over which it flew. The fawn
skfn' signified plenty, on account of the
Pawnee version of Genesis that three does
were their forerunners: The whole cere
mony prepared the fields for sowing.
Ernest Cronan, the historian, ssked If the
missionaries had 'not had an effect on the
customs of the Pawnees.
"I do not believe It," said Dr. Dorsey.
The Pawnees are 'the most conservative
of the plains Indians."

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland. Ort. 22. An
drew Csrnegle was today formally Installed
as a director of St. Andrew's university In
the presence of a large and brilliant as
semblage, over which Principal Dorisldson
The honorary degree of doctor of laws
was subsequently conferred by St. Andrew's
on Mr. Carnegie, Ambassadors Choate and
White, Prof. Alexander Graham Bell of
Washington and Henry White, secretary of
the United States embsssy In London.
Mr. Carnegie's address consisted of
lengthy study of the comparative growth of
nations In the paths of Industrial ascend
ancy, with a striking commentary on their
future. In this speech, which was repleto
with notable statistics and Important eco
nomicprophecies, perhaps the most remark
able feature was an appeal to Emperor Wil
liam to use his Influence toward the even
tual creation of the United States of Europe
under the form of a political and Industrial
In this way alone, Mr. Carnegie declared,
can Europe conquer the foreign markets or
repel the American Invasion. France, Ger
many and Russia, which had already taken
Joint action against Japan, would suffice to
ensure a satisfactory union in Europe.
"The czar," he continued, "having taken
the first step toward the peace of the world
In The Hague conference, the other mighty
emperor might some day be impressed with
the thought that It is due to himself and
to Germany to play a great part upon the
wider stage of Europe, as Its deliverer rrom
the Incubus which oppresses and weakens
It, the appalling, paralyzing fear of war and
of ruin between members of its own body.
Appeals to Kaiser.
Mr. Carnegie, in the course of a glowing
tribute, to Emperor William, said he could
not help believing that "one so supremely
great" could "Influence the few men io
today control Europe to take the first s'ep,
not to federate, but by an alliance to en
sure international peace, which is all that
can be expected at present." Unless the
powers agree to something of the kind
all they could look forward to was to
"revolve like so many ltlliputlana around
this giant Gulliver, the American union,
soon to embrace 200,000,000 of the English
speaking race and capable of supplying
most of the world's wants."
For the best essays on this subject Mr.
Carnegie offered a rector's prize.
Dealing with the events which caused
the Industrial supremacy "Once yours, but
now passed to your lineal descendants,
who bears the industrial crown," Mr.
Carnegie maintained that it waa a physi
cal impossibility for Great Britain to pro
duce material things rivaling in amount
those of countries the size of America,
Germany and Russia, nor would a union
of the empire change the situation, for
"neither Canada nor Australia gave
promise, of much Increase In population or
industrialism. All thought of material
ascendancy, even with the British empire
united, must, therefore, be abandoned."
' Mr. Carnegie spared bis Scotch audience
no details. "America," he said,' "now
makes more steel than all the' rest of
the world. In Iron and coal Its production
la greatest and K is also so in textilea.
It produces three-quarters of the world's
cotton. The value of ita manufactures is
about triple that of your own. ' Its ex
ports are greater and the clearing house
exchanges at New York are almost double
those of London."
Germany, the speaker aluo said, now
threatened to oust Great Britain even from
second place. France was not likely , to
Increase its trade much further. It was
only through the frugality and virtue
of Its people that It remained amongst
the first-class nations.
Government Urged by President
to Pass a Vagrancy
MANILA, Oct. 22. Governor Taft dis
cussed the suppression of ladronlsm in
Cavlte yesterday at a conference held with
the presldentea of twenty-two towns of
Cavlte province. He told the assembled
presldentes that they and their people must
unite and work for the suppression and
punishment ot crime. The presldentes
promised to organize volunteers for this
purpose in each town. They asked Governor
Taft to secure the passage of a vagrancy
act that would reach ladrones and dissolute
Americans and foreigners. Many discharged
soldiers and other foreigners make their
homes with the natives and the influence of
these men Is often bad. The government
has been asked to secure the deportation of
such persons, but up to the present time it
has had no means of dealing with them.

8T. PAUL, Oct. I. The taking of test I-J
tnony for the defendsnts In the suit of the
United States and the Northern Securities
compasy and others Interested in the so
called railway merger was resumed todsy
before Special Examiner Ingersoll tn the
United States circuit court.
Frederick Weyerhauser, a well known
lumberman, who for the last year has been
a Oret Northern director, was the first
witness. His testimony tended to show the
greater business convenience of shipping
over one system as compared with several
systems. He was not cross-examined.
George B. Harris, president of the Chi
cago, Burlington Quincy railroad, was the
next witness. He thought the acquisition
of the Burlington by the Northern Pacific
and Great Northern was the practical exten
sion of the Burlington to the coast.' He
emphasized the extent of the country
reached by his road where no trees grew end
asserted that Nebraska and some other
spates would be almost uninhabited if tim
ber or fuel could not be carried In. He
said the future lumber supply must come
from the Pacific coast. The new Burlington
connection with the northwestern ststes
helped also in rattle shipments; his line
reached nearly all packing centers, making
a direct connection between the market and
the grazing sections. His lins reached all
Illinois coal fields and UP to a few years ago
the supply actually exceeded the demand.
It was necessary to find' new markets;
soft coal was not susceptible of ' tranship
ment because easily broken, and a per
manent connection' with' other lines was
sought and finally found In these north
western states, thereby bringing the ship
pers and consumers closer together. He
told of his desire to extend the Burling
ton to the north In order to secure lum
ber shipments and their final decision to
build in that direction. The sale to the
northern lines then came up and made a
better and more permanent arrangement
for this class of business. Speaking of
coal, he said his company Jioped by the
union of interests) to secure Iron ore as
a return haul for coal sent north. They
were already assured of the use of such
iron ore in and about St- Louis.
Mr. Day, interstate commerce commission
attorney, examined Mr. Harris, bringing out
the Burlington survey north to Oreat Falls,
Mont., which the witness said had not yet
been abandoned. He told also of surveys
west of Denver twenty years ago, but ex
plained that the management, simply se
cured the facta in. order to present them
to the board If ever wanted. As to the
western lumber rates, there was material
reduction to the people In Nebraska and
Missouri river points.
Recurring to the coal shipments, be said
the union ot .interests avoids the reship
ment ot coal and makes possible the haul'
Ing of unbroken tif ins from the coal fields.
Hla road was maATed by its directors, as
it always had be In. Mr. Day, persisted
in questions, as to J yhere President Harris
got his orders. W - 'Harris- said there had'
been no change W y time In, bis orders;
that the direotoraAiemed to think, that he
had some commosTTgense and. might use it.
He consulted freely with the directors,
however, regarding the policy to be pur
sued Agents for the Burlington at various
Pacific coast centers looked after business
for that line out there. . He believed
thoroughly In publicity In rates and said
secret rates, were steadily going out of use.

LONDON. Oct. 22. William O'Brien cre
ated a great deal ot excitement among
hla fellow nationalists in the House ot
Commons today by questioning Premier
Balfour regarding President Roosevelt's
letter to the convention of the United
Irish lesgue at Boston, Mais.
Mr. O'Brien asked the premier if ho had
observed that Mr. Roosevelt sent a letter
and whether in view of future friendly re
lations between the United Statea and Great
Britain he could make any announcement
that this country wss not indisposed to
learn wisdom regarding Irish affairs from
the hesd ot a grest and friendly nation.
The speaker promptly ruled the ques
tion out of order, to the evident chagrin of
the nationalists, whose excitement In
creased aa Mr. O'Brien continued to press
his point. He urged that this letter of
the president was an International fact of
the first importance to the future of Great
Britain and that it would not be a friendly
thing to the head of a great nation that bla
letter should be treated as if the House
of Commons wss disposed to "avenge an
Insult to the chief secretary for Ireland

The speaker maintained his ruling and

died. It will take many years to re-estab

llarrlman Lines.
It is possible though no decision has
been reached that the strike now In prog
ress on the Union Pacific may be extended
all over the Harrlman system. It is the
desire' of the strike leaders that this policy
be decided upon, since there is no indication
of concession by President Burt.
The executive committee of the Interna

session in Chicago and has promised to con

pathetic strike of all lta members who are
employed In shops on the Harrlman roads.
Strike leaders here believe such action will
be taken. If it Is, the other crafts, tbe
boilermakers and blacksmiths, probably
will get similar concessions from their ex
ecutive boards and the strike will then be
come universal over all the roads controlled
by Harrlman. In this way the strikers feel
assured of forcing a victory within a short
