Tbe Monro doctrine has been ackuowledgeri
by two of the greatest powers of Europe.
President Roosevelt has been accepted a
arbitrator by all the powers conccrn'-d, and
the South American states have been per-
uaded by tbe events that the United Statea
la the only power between them and Europe.
The only annoying thing to the German
government has been the alleged readiness
of Americana to -suspect Germany of secret
designs. The reported extraordinary dis
trust of Germany has been a painful sur
prlse to the emperor and the cabinet.

PHILADELPHIA. Dec. 22. The New
England society of Pennsylvania observed
"Forefathers' day" by giving the usual an
nual dinner tonight at Horticultural ball.
General James M. Deck, president of the
society, acted aa tosstmaster. Senator
Hoar answered the historic toast, "Fore
fathers' Day," Charles Emory Smith told
of New England men In the presidential
cabinet, Senator Foster of Washington re
sponded to the toast, "New England an the
West," Senator Piatt of Connecticut spoke
on "New England In the Senate" and Con
gressman Llttlefleld on "New England In

ST. LOUIS', Mo.. Deo. 22.--One hundred
and sixty natives of New England, compris
ing the New England society of St. Louis,
held a banquet to night In commemoration
of the ?82d anniversary of the landing of
th Pilgrim fathers. Cyrus P. Wslbridge
was tosstmaster. Among those present
were William H. P. Fsunce, president of
Brown university, and Winston Churchill,
the author.
Improve Municipal Politics.
W. H. P. Faunce, responding to the
toast, "Production of th Pilgrim Spirit,"
said In part:
In no place are the sons of the Pilgrims
more needed tod-ay than In the life of our
great cities. Our national government IS
the admiration of the world. Our stste
governments are for the most part upright
and efficient, but American Intelligence and
character have not been equal as yet to
mtmicipHl success.
The sons of the Pilgrims should see to
It that we maintain total separation of
municipal administration from national
politicians.
ftm' rurms of tyranny must be met by
the resurrection of the old spirit. Let John
l o l,,wn a-am open his Blole and let the
mighty spirits of Hrewster, Carver and
Wtnslow speak again from the soil of old
Plymouth and tell us that liberty, civil,
religious and Industrial, Is their bequest
and our birthright.
In response to tbe toast "New England
of Today" Winston Churchill said, in part:
In a hundred years an empire has sprung
into existence One of the most typical
Americans that ever lived. General William
Tecumseh Sherman, said the Mississippi
valley was the sest of a comtpg empire.
The largest of New England has resigned
Itself to Its fate not an unpleasant one of
becoming a park for the rest of the Unltfld
States. All our legislation in New Hamp
shire Is tending this way. We have a pro
gressive party in our legislature, which Is
gradually gaining ground, and we hope
soon to build roads so that we may sell
our abandoned farms and take advantage
of th new class of citisens which this
latest evolution has brought about.

DECIDES ON BLUE FACINGS
Army Uniform Board Selects Union
Color in Preference to
White.
WASHINGTON. Dec. 22. The special
army board on the new uniform bad a
meeting at the War department today and
decided In favor of blue facings for the
uniforms Instead of white facings, aa had
been suggested.
Tbe action of the board -was based mainly
on the fact that many officers had gone to
the expense of having their new uniforms
mad with the blua facings, and It Was
thought that the work had gone too far
to Justify a change, simply to gratify , a
taste in th matter of color. There is a
strong sentiment in fsvor ot white facings
in the army and the matter will not be
Settled Until Anally passed on by. th sec

Property of Purchaser Directly
Selllagr Hoose Hands Them Over
to Conipnny for Delivery,
KEOKUK. Ia., Dec. 22. Judge McPher
son of the tedersl court today overruled
th decision of the state supreme court,
which held that the Adams Express com
pany was carrying on the business of a
retail liquor dealer when it delivered
liquors ordered outside tbe state. The fed
eral court decided that as the express com
pany was only an agent of ths vendors, it
was not engaged In the business of a liquor
dealer.
Tbe packages of liquor which led to ths
charge were sent by a Ilquot house at
Dallas, 111., to parties at Birmingham, C.
O. D. Tbe government claimed that title
was transferred to thu company when it
received C. O. D. packages. Judge Mc
pherson, however, says:
The only question to be considered In the
case is where and by whom the liquor was
sold. If In Illinois, the court Is without
Jurisdiction. If by the Dallas company In
Iowa, then the grand Jury has erreil In
naming the defendant In this indictment.
Did the Adams Express company carry on
the business of liquor dealer In Iowa?
A common carrier may exact carrying
charges In advance, or may waive prepay
ment, In which event it has and retains
a lien on such merchandise for carrying
charges, payment of which by consignee
removes the Hen In such case the carrier
has no Interest or profit In the transac
tion, other than as a carrier. It receives
no commission or the sale of liquor.
Judge McPherson holds that title to the
liquors passed from the Dallas company to
the consignees when It was deposited in
the express office at Dallas.
