"The Earth and the Fullness Thereof,"

hand among those be has championed.
After many amusing adventures the book
Is written In the form of letters he suc
ceeds In getting employment In the family
of a farmer high up on a mountain. Here
amid poverty he dwells the allotted time,
performing the most menial tasks, eating
the poorest of food and In every way living
the simple life of the peasants, with their
suspicion, their frugality and their simple
faith. The story ends with Rosegger mar
ried to the lovely Barbel and settled on tha
farm for life. Incidentally Mr. Rosegger
has given us an Intimate picture of the
Syrian peasants, their poverty, their In
dustry, their frugality, their struggles and
temptations, their superstitious ignorance
and their blind faith. Published by G. P.

Dr. Cleveland haa gone exhaustively Into
the subject, and tho resulta of hla study

Into three central Ideas, vlx.: (1) What Are
Funds? (2) How Funds are Obtained; (3)

WRIGHT WANTS CnEAP SUGAR
Urges' Senate Committee to Eeduo Tariff
on Filipino Product
PRESENT DUTIES CALLED PROHIBITIVE
Vice Governor Holds Beat Wit to
Pacify lalaadere la to EMaMUh
Close Trade Relatione
WASHINGTON. Dec. . Luke E. Wright
appeared before the senate committee on
tbe Philippines today and urged the pass
age of tbe bill reducing the duty on Phil
ippine goods to this country to 25 per cent
of the Dlogley rates.
He also thought Chinese laborers should
be allowed to enter the Islands and sup
ported the bill tor reform In the Philippine
In his opinion, the tariff of 75 per cent
really amounted to a prohibition. He
pleaded for larger and more liberal trade
relations with the Islands and said ship
bringing sugar and tobacco to this coun
try should take back American producta.
Senators Burrows and Dietrich chal
lenged his statement and said the imports
of sugar since 1900 had Increased steadily.
Mr. Wright replied that the amount waa
a mere bagatelle compared to the produc
tion. "Aa a mere matter of sentiment," said
he, "I think there is hardly anything con
gress could do that would have such a
fine effect on the Filipino a to establish
more Intimate trade relations. It would
remove the Impression that Americans are
there to exploit the islands and not give
them the benefit of American marketa. Tbe
possibilities of sugar production In the
Philippines would be unlimited were the
Importation of Chinese labor permitted."
Replying to a question suggesting that it
would be better for the United Statea to
produce It own sugar and obviate the
necessity of shipping it across the Paclflo,
Mr. Wright said as a Philippine commis
sioner he was bound to advance the Inter
ests of the Philippine people.
Turning to the Philippine currency, he
urged authority for the commission to Issue
temporary certificates of Indebtedness re
deemable in gold.
HOW SOCIETY IS DEVELOPED
Dr. Ilovrerth Expounds the Doctrine
of Kvolntlon to Good
"Social Evolution" was the aubject of
Prof. Ira W. Howerth's lecture in the First
Congregational church yesterday evening.
He said In part:
"There are two schools of social philos
ophy, one holding that all of our aoclal
difficulties will be remedied by tbe gradual
and Inevitable advancement of society due
to evolution; the other, urging the neces
sity of hastening the solution of our so
cial problems by Intelligent concerted ac
tion. "The Idea that nature alone will take
care of all aoclal difficulties that beset
mankind, and that any attempt to order
aoclal life In accordance with a precon
ceived plan can only result In making mat
ter worse, la due to the recognized fact
of unconscious evolution In the past.
"The theory of natural selection applies
aa well to tbe development of societies as
to the production of animal forms. The
principles underlying social evolution are
the same as those upon which the theory
of natural selection le baaed, namely, vari
ation, heredity and the etruggle for exist
ence. Thus we have what many are dis
posed to look upon aa an unchangeable law,
that whenever one race comes In contact
with another tbe tendency la towards the
suppression or the elimination of tbe
weaker race. It Is the old law of tbe sur
vival of the fittest. This law. however. It
should be observed, la a law of nature and
not, a law of mind. In the artificial selec
tion practiced In developing domestic- ani
mals the natural law Is counteracted. It
la equally possible to counteract that law
so far as It applies to the development of
"Society today then ha opportunity, by
taking It evolution Into It own hands and
making It conscious, to eliminate the In
ordinate waste and destruction, to prevent
tbe Iocs which la likely to take place of
what has already been gained In human
history, and to determine social destiny.
The Idea that tbe deatiny of a nation la In
dependent of the conduct of lta people la
not worth a moment's consideration. 'Social
force are aubject to the aame possibilities
of regulation aa natural forces. It 1 true
that governmental Interference In matter
Industrial, religious and social haa pro
duced generally more barm than good. But
this need not necessarily be the case. Tbe
great aoclal question then really I, whether
society is to be left to drift listlessly along
or whether the people are to regard so
clety a the legitimate object of art and
make it aa auperlor to what It 1 now aa the
artificial producta of the field and garden
are to those which nature alone produces."
LOVE AND SOLDIER CLOTHES

There waa a deal of tear and mutual re

through complaint of Private Harry Hop

haa attached herself to the regiment at
Fort Crook and Is called "sergeant" by
the men. It seem that lately ahe left the
reservation and came to the city. While at
liberty Hopkins visited the "sergeant"
here and ahe waa ao loath to have him de

he apoke of leaving. Hopkins found a
campaign hat belonging to the woman of
the regiment and departed for hla poet.
The company sergeant, however, demanded
that the government property be aecured
and, aa Lou refuaed to deliver the goods,
she was arrested. After a tearful confer

STRIKERS' HEARING BEGINS
Testimony Taken from hoa Employes
rente to Be Rather I
Hearing of testimony In the case of the
attachment against Union Pacific strikers.
fchargtng certain of the latter with viola
tions of the federal court Injunction, was
begun before Judge Munger In the federal
court yesterday afternoon at S o'clock,
tbe case having been postponed over two
week. Four witnesses were examined.
All of these were atrlke breaker employed
In the Union Pacific shops. There is an
army of witnesses to testify and, aa a
large number of them are unable to readily
understand the language, there Is every
Indication that the hearing may be pro
longed Indefinitely. John N. Baldwin, who
la conducting the railroad'a aide of the af
fair, said he hoped to get through with
the witnesses In two day. C. J. Smyth of
Smyth Smith, attorneys for the strikers,
was In charge of the latter'a Interests yes
terday. Tbe first witness yesterday waa Joseph
Firth, a blacksmith at the shops, who had
worked there before the strike and Is still
employed. He lives at 1319 Webster street.
He swore that on the night of November
17 William Richelieu, with other strikers,
accosted htm in front of his door and that
Richelieu applied aome epithets to him.
There waa no violence, but the prosecution
attempted to show that the profane lan
guage which Richelieu was said to have
used seriously disturbed two members of
Firth' family who were sick and also hla
Jamea U Silver, 115 South Nineteenth
street, elevator operator at Union Pacific
general offices, practically corroborated
what Firth had said. Silver had been at
Flrth'a house that night to see how his
alck children were getting along.
Fred Thlelman, who boards at S18 North
Fifteenth street, said he came from Ger
many eight months ago and began work in
the Union Pacific shops since the outbreak
of this strike. He told the court that on
the night of November 17 three men, whom
he did not know, but who were sup
posed to be striker, one of whom hs
thought might possibly have been William
Richelieu, met him on Cass street between
Fourteenth and Fifteenth and indulged In
some threatening talk. He told the men
he and the three fellows with him hal
quit the shops and were going to their
home In Chicago and then told the court
that he waa not telling the truth, but did
this to deceive the men who had accosted
him and his comrades.
The last witness waa Mekolos' Fischer,
who rooms at 409 North Nineteenth street
and eata at the Union Pacific boarding
house. He had been In the United Statea
two year and at the Union Pacific shops
since July. He claimed to have met Wil
liam Richelieu on November 10 at night.
He ld Richelieu was accompanied by
othera and that aomeene In the crowd ex
pressed a desire to penetrate hla cranium
with a bullet. He was not exactly sure of
the author of this remark, which he
averred had a very atlmulattng effect upon
hi nerrou system. There waa no escape
of atray bullet, however, or any other
form of violence and finally the two squads

MAY HAVE TO PAY TEA TAX
Importer with Goads la Bond Here
May Have to Stan
The local collector of cuntotns and the
wholesale dealers In lea were very much
perturbed yesterday over a report ema
nating from St. Loula that the United
States court had decided that tea In bond
January 1 would be aubject to the duty
which I to be removed on that date.
The collector bad but a few days ago re
celved word from the Treasury depart
ment to release the tea from bond without
the payment of duty after January 1, and
the Jobbera and retail dealer for six
month have been looking forward to the
removal of the tax. In tbe last six months
no tea ha been sold except for Immediate
consumption, and orders have been but a
fraction of the usual buslneea. At the aame
time the purchases on the part of importer
have been as large a usual, shipments be
ing so regulated that the tea would be In a
bonded warehouse on or before January 1,
at which time the delivery to retail dealer
waa to be made.
If the report from St. Louis I correct It
will mean tbe payment Into the Omaha cus
toms bouse of not less than $77,000 within
the next sixty days, aa the tea will be
drawn for consumption rapidly If the duty
must be paid. It may have the effect of
slightly Increasing the price of tea.

reer the Corn Belt, a monthly Issued by the
Chicago, Burlington A Qulncy, haa sus
pended publication. This was announced
Tuesday by John Francis, general passenger
agent of the B. A M. road. But one reason
Is assigned for the Corn Belt' retirement,
that being that It has fulfilled its mission.
The Corn Belt was founded under extra
ordinary conditions to perform a remarka
ble task and It therefore has filled a unique
place in progressive railroad advertising.
The paper came Into existence during the
period of financial depression, about 1893,
as a champion of Nebraska's Interest. It
prime object wa to aid In establishing the
state In the right light in the east, where
It had been brought Into Invidious compari
sons with other statea during that crucial
period. Naturally the Burlington was look
ing for effective means of advertising lta
own Interests and found In this little peri
odical Just what was wanted.
