The application of scientific discovery
during the hint quarter of the nineteenth
century hut wrought a stupendous In
liiHtrinl revolution. Within lens thnn n
quarter of century electric light baa
Supplanted gas nnd kerosene, the tele
phone liii s supplemented and In ninny
ruses supplanted the telegraph aud the
electric trolley lina displaced the home
nnd the mule na ft public carrier on
ufhnn. nml auburban highway. The
close of the nineteenth century wit
ncsscd the harnessing of waterfulls for
the transmission of energy generated by
natural forces to distant industrial
confers as .n motor power in mills and
factories and for the propulsion of tram
way and rollway trains. Almost on the
heel of these wonderful inventions came
the horseless carriage that has within
lens than ten years been perfected Into
a machine that copes Jn speed over com
mon public roads with the locomotive
travelling over the most perfectly bal
lasted railway.
But the world Is destined to witness
still more marvelous and seemingly mi
raculous Inventions and discoveries In
the twentieth century. To first of these
Is wireless telegraphy. The achieve
ments of Marconi in transmitting signals
and messages flcroes the Atlantic have
blnxed the way for new discoveries in
aerial transmission that to the receptive
mind appear to border on the miracu
lous. During the past week a new
system of wireless telegraphy has been
successfully tested on Lake Michigan
between Chicago and Milwaukee that
promises to eclipse Marconi's invention.
Signals ind messages were transmitted
from the private residence of the In
ventor ot Chicago to the deck of the
whalcback atoamshlp Christopher Co
lumbus, plying on Lake Michigan. This
system it is clulmed can be operated
without masts or poles, nnd its signals
cannot b$ Intercepted or Interrupted by
other wireless dispatches transmitted
across or parallel to its path.
Auother most startling electrical in
vention has been successfully applied on
a new electric railway in Bohemia
whereby a trolley train in motion was
kept in wireless telephonic communlca.
tlon with other trolley trains moving
on the same tracks at long distances.
A still more marvelous discovery that
baffles the scientific world Is the preci
ous substance, denominated radium,
which continuously diffuses heat and
light rays of astonishing penetrating
power. We are told on unquestioned
authority that when King Edward and
Queen Alexandra visited the London
hospital recently a pile of six English
pennies was placed on top of a minute
piece of radium and tho light was visible
through the coins. According to tho
calculation of eminent scientists, if the
one-mllllonth part of the sun's volunio
Is made up of radium it would be-sufficient
to account for till the light and
heat which the sun radiates into space.
If this view is correct there is a resfr
volr,. of energy In the eleuients that
nake up universal matterwhlch has
never been suspected and which is capa
ble of exerting most tremendous power.
A writer in .Nature calculates that
one grain of radium gives off sufficient
energy during its life to raise 500 tons
a mile high. The effects of radium ap
plied in the treatment of human bodies
cannot be regarded as supernatural, but
they certainly defy explanation with
our present knowledge. The rays from
radium pass easily through the flesh and
develop a phosphorescent light by strlk
Ing so many substances. It Is claimed
by scientific Journals that it has been
found possible to produce the seusatlon
of light even in the blind and a cose is
reported from London of a boy blind
from his first year who has been taught
to read by letters illuminated in this
What further undreamed discoveries
the world will witness before A. D. 2000
is beyond human ken. We have not
yet passed the first half of the first de
cade of the twentieth century.
The action of President Roosevelt In
regard to the issue raised in the gov
orryiieut printing office, with which the
reading public Is presumed to be fa
mlllur, hue met with general approval.
It established the fact, as to which thero
should never have been any doubt or
question, that a law of congress must
bo respected even though It be In eon
f.lct with a rule of a labor union and
tuni tne government can brook no
divided authority and no divided alle
giance on the part of its employes. No
one who considers the matter impar
tially and without prejudice can arrive
at uny other conclusion than that the
president acted as his duty required.
If there are any who doubt the friendly
attitude of Mr. Iloosevelt toward or
ganized labor a reference to his public
utterances should convince them that
thoro Is no reason for such doubt. In
his address last year before the Brother
hood of Locomotive Engineers he said
he believed emphatically in organised
labor, in his last annual message the
preside referred In the most friendly
spirit to organized labor and his interest
In It was notably manifested In connec
tion with the anthracite ceal strike, the
appointment of commission to arbi
trate that difficulty being a distinct
recognition of organised labor. In re
gard to the trouble at Washington
President lloosevelt, In his lettrr to
Secretary Cortelyou, said: "There Is no
objection to the employes of the govern
ment printing office constituting them
selves into a body If they so desire, but
uo rules or resolutions of that union
can be permitted to override the laws
of the United Statee. which it Is my
worn duty to enforce." No Wiw-respect-lng
citizen will object to this.
Among our public men organized labor
has never, had a better friend than
ineodore uooseveit and irom no one
has it ever received wiser counsel. He
would have it pursue a policy that would
give it greater strength and a better
claim to r-ublle confidence. He has said:
"Organised capital and organised labor
alike should remember that In the long
run the Interest of each must be brought
Into harmony with the Interest of the
general public, and the conduct of each
must conform to the fundamental rules
of obedience to the law of individual
freedom and of Justice and fair dealing
toward all. Each should remember that
In addition to power It must strive after
tho realization of healthy, lofty and
generous Ideals."- Such advice denotes
a lieitrty sympathy with labor and on
earnest desire for Its elevation.
The first plank of the reorganized
populist porty declares in favor of a
money, whether stamped on gold, silver
or paper, to be coined and Issued ex
clusively by the government and made
n full legal tender, for art debts, both
public and private. If money is a
purely arbitrary standard of value and
medium of exchange created by the
stamp of the government, the stamping,
or rather the coinage, ot gold or Oliver
money Is n stupid waste of substance
and energy.
If stamped paper will perform all the
functions pt money why coin silver
dimes, quarters, and dollars and gold
eagles, and double eagles, when it Is
Just SB easy to stamp hundred dollar
bills, thousand dollar bills and ten thou
sand, or hundred thousand notes? Why
waste labor in mining and coining the
precious metals when the- government
printing machine can be set in motion
and stamp millions, billions and tril
lions at the nominal outlay of muscle,
ink and paper?
If the flat of the government rreates
value, why can't the government make
us all rich and put on end to the ever
lasting Jangle and turmoil between
Mbor ana capuaiY wny cam every

government provide every cltlsen with
all the luxuries that can bo Iwught with
money? What Is the use of saving it
and earning bread by the sweat of one's
brow when the stamp of the govern
ment can transmute n piece of blank
paper at its pleasure Into a legal tender
that will exchange in the markets of
the world for all the products of tho
farm and factory and all the commodi
ties accumulated by ages of toll?
If Uncle Sam can really buy us all n
form and transform at will the cottage
of the mechanic Into a palace, is it not
really criminal for hlra to keep so many
of his nieces and nephews, cousins and
nunts, striving with might and mnln
for paltry day wages? Why not nsher

keeping millions of people watting nnd

The report from Paris regarding the
new French tariff on American meats,
which will have the effect of greatly
reducing our meat exports to that
country, will undoubtedly revive inter
est in the question of reciprocity with
France, for which a treaty was nego
tiated several years ago. We are now
doing a business with that country In
salted meats which, while not very
large, is worth preserving and It seems
that this can only be done by making
some concessions on French goods. Ac
cording to the advices, which are unoffi
cial, though probably inspired from offi
cial circles, any reduction in the new
tariff rates will depend upon conces
sions t6 French goods, under the reci
procity provisions' of the Dlngley tariff.
A reciprocity treaty with France was
negotiated under the McKlnley admin
titration and sent to the senate, where
it shored the fate of the other like
ogreementg in being Ignored. President
McKlnley was earnestly in favor of the
ratification of the French treaty, but
his Influence in that behalf was without
avail, although it was shown that the
concessions obtained from France were
decidedly favoruble to the United
States. Mr. Kasson, commissioner for
the negotiation of reciprocity treaties,
stated that France agreed to give the
rUnlted States reductions In dutlea aver
aging from 20 to 49 per cent on all the
possible exports of this country now
dutiable, ssve nineteen in number, only
a few of these being of Importance to
the United States. We gave her In re
turn reduction averaging only 6.8 per
cent and applicable to about one-fourth
of the articles In our tariff list, reserv
lng without any concession upon them
all other articles, including many
manufactures and woolen goods of
every kind. Mr. Kasson pointed out
that the probable effect of this treaty
would be a gain In our annual exports
to Franco of from $20,000,000 to $30.
000,000. tn spite of a strong opposition
to the treaty in France it was accepted
by the French government, which un
doubtedly wae very greatly disap
pointed at the fftllure of the American
aenate to ratify it.
The action ot the French government
In raising the tariff rates on our meats
may be Intended tc force a favorable
consideration of the reciprocity agree
ment negotiated and which the senate
can yet rotlfy if disposed to do so, but
whatever the motive of that country
the matter should be considered by us
from a purely practical standpoint It
is" manifestly desirable to retain what
trade we now have with France and to
Increase it If possible. In the Judg
ment of Mr. Kasson, whose opinion In
such a motter is wot .V of great con
slderatlon. reciprocity aa embodied In
the treaty negotiated would enable, us
to very largely Increase our business
with France. It ia quite possible that
a few Interests here would not be
helped by such a treaty, but It Is neces
sary to have regard for the general
welfare. The urgent demand is for
aa extension of our foreign markets.
We want a greater Htlet for our sur
plus products. .It la admitted on all
hands that to obtain this concessions
must be made. France wants reciproc
ity. She has shown her Willingness to
concede more to us than we are dis
posed to give to her. Can we wisely
decline such an opportunity for Improv
ing our trade relatione with Uiat country?
DlMCtieslon of the prevalence of mob
violence continues unabated, showing a
degree of public Interest In the matter
from which It Is reasonably to be hoped
practical results will come. It is an
nounced that a conference to consider
this very Important subject will soon be
held at Chautauqua, In regard to which
the Now York Evening Tost observes
that there should be no mincing of
words, "no description of the evils re
sulting from lynch law which does not
go to the root of the matter, or portray
the national character of this disgrace
to our civilization. Sympathy for the
victims of horrid crimes Is well euough
In Its place, but not In a discussion of
those dangerous men who add murder
to a previous Infamy. The law draws
no line between those who lynch In hot
bloo.d and those who conspire at leisure
to take a prisoner from Jail." This, it
is pot to be doubted, reflects the very
general sentiment of the American peo
ple, though unfortunately there are not
ft few apologists for lynching, some of
them persons who profess to be law
respecting. The growth of mob law calls for tho
most earnest attention and discussion.
As Governor Durbln of Indiana says:
"Let the American people take to heart
the Issues involved in an appeal to mob
law and the mob spirit will instantly
disappear as a national phenomenon.
We need only a national awakening to
what this issue implies. We need ft
strengthening of tho arm of authority,
widening and deepening respect for the
law by Its enforcement without fear or
favor." It would seem that tho needed
national awakening must come from a
continuance of the discussion now wide
The latest new departure in Insurance
Is the American Mothers' Birth Insur
ance compuny of Boston, Incorporated
on the mutual plan for the benefit of
members, who may receive by monthly
payments graduated cash benefits ran
ging from 100 to f 500 on the birth of o
llvjng child, depending upon the form
of membership of the beneficiary and
the number of payments made before
the time of the child's blrtb. The policies
Issued by the American- birth , Insur
ance company evidently have two ob
jects In view: First, the protection of
married women against dependents and,
second, the stimulotion of the birth
rate. Unlike the standard life insur
ance companies, which depend on mor
tality tables as a guide for their
premiums, the birth insurance com
panies are walking In th.e dark, having
no available table of probabilities as a
lamp . to guide their footsteps. The ex
periment, will, however, be wotcbed
with Interest by fathers as well as by
mothers. '
The, next chance for arbitration to
score a distinct triumph Is in the dispute
waging between the Journeymen Bar
bers' union and the National Under
takers association as to which shall
have the. exclusive claim to the per
quisite of shaving the corpse. This
privilege would perhaps not be so
sought after were it not for the fact
that the barbers have fixed n fee of $.1
In their scale of prices, applying to the
practice of the tonsorial art, against
which the undertakers are not only
protesting as excessive, but also offer
ing to do a better Job for a smaller
compensation. This grave controversy
Is eliciting cutting remarks on both
sides of the dead line, but baa not yet
reached the hair-splitting stage. It is
to be hoped the warring hosts will soon
get together and bury the hatchet
It is proposed to rearrange the
grounds surrounding the state bouse at
Lincoln In accordance with a carefully
prepared landscape plan, the chief fea
ture of which will be th,e removal of

many of our lawmakers and other state
officers In the past seem to have pre
ferred to travel the crooked paths, even
where straight roads were accessible.

A song for the unsung heroes who rose In
the country's neea.
When the life ot the land was threatened
by ihe slHver's cruel greed.
For the men who came from the cornfield.
who came from the plow and the flail.
Who rallied round when they heard the
sound of the mighty man of the rail.
They laid them down In the valleys, the: 1
iHld them down In the wood,
And the world looked on at the work they
did and whispered, "H Is good."
They fouxht their way on the hillside, they
, fought their way In the glen,
And God looked down en their sinews brown
and said, "1 have made them men."
They laid them down where the rivers the
grtenlng valiays f:em,
And the song of the thund'rous cannon waa
their sole rtqutcm.
And the great smoke wreath that mingled
Its hue with the dusky cloud
Was the tlaa that furled o'er a Saddened
world and the sheet thbt made theirs
O mighty Qnd nf the battles who held them
In Thy hand. '
Who gave them strength through the whole
dny'S length to light for their native
They are lying dead on the hillridos, thty
are lying dead on the plain.
And we have not fire to smite the lyre and
sing thero cne brief strain.
Olve Thou rcme seer the pawer to sing

The men who feared the inatter'a whip, but
did not fear the light,
That he may tell of their virtues t.s mln-

Till the pride of face and the hate of race

A sens for the unsung heroes who stood the
awful test. ...
When the humblest host that the land could
boast went forth to meet the best;
A song for the unsung heroes who fell on
the bloody sod, . . .
Who fought their way from night to day
and struggled up to Qod.
