Letter from Cleveland.
Hughes offered in evidence a letter from
Orover Cleveland, chairman of the board of
trustees ot the Equitable Life Assurance
society under the Thomas Ryan purchase
of the stock. Mr. Cleveland's letter was
explanatory of the work of the Equitable
trustees under the deed of trust and de
tailed the progress ot the trustees in mu
tuallsing that company.
The letter detaf ed the election of twenty
on new directors on recommendation of
the trustees, all of whom except two are
policy holders. These two are expected to
take out policies as soon as possible. Mr,
Cleveland also calls the attention of the
committee to the difficulties In the way
ot carrying out complete mutuallsatlon
owing to litigation by minority stock In
terssts and to the provision of the society's
charter that directors shall be stock hold
ers. In concluding his letter Mr. Cleve
The trustees feel that In the difficulties
that have confronted them. Inasmuch as
they were compelled to act promptly under
the powers conferred by the trust agree
ment, the results of their care and labor
have been as satisfactory ns they could
possibly have expected. They are not
blind, however, to the fact that obstacles
lie In the path of the proposed mutuullia
tlon which are so Inherent that even with
the greatest study and care they cannot
be easily overcome.
Mutuallsatlon and policy holding control
are pleasant to the ear, but in and of
themselves they do not necessarily Impart
food administration or successful manage

forty, among which Is an address signed
by six professors of the Imperial university,
ono of whom was recently placed on the

anti-peace thesis. This memorial strongly
urges the necessity of refusing to ratify
the peace treaty and condemns It as en

set forth In the declaration of hostilities.
It Is also stated that indisputable reasons
exist for refusing to ratify the treaty
which Is deemed to be pregnant with ele

WASHINGTON. Sept. 22.-Th board of
consulting engineers of the Panama Canal
commission will make an Inspection of the
Fachussett resennlr, a part of the water
supply of Poston, before sailing for" the
Isthmus next Thursday. This trip was de
cided on today during a meeting at which
the discussion of the construction of dams
was the continued subject. The Poston
reservoir Is mnlntslned by an earthen dam,
with sand and earth foundation. It holds
water to the depth of sixty feet and was
built by Engineer Stearns, a member of the
board. It Is regarded as a practical Illus
tration of the strength of an earthen dam
on an earth foundation, and In this connec
tion offering valuable data In solving the
problem of dams on the Isthmus, where
many borings have been taken In the search
for rock foundations for dams, with vary
ing success. The board has spent the
greater part of the time during Its sessions
here on this question, but under a resolu
tion passed no vote or conclusion can be
recorded until after its visit to the Isthmus.
In the discussion today the practicability
of dams at various heights, ranging from
sixty to ninety feet, was discussed, as welt
as the various locations for dams along the
line of the. canal. The details of the trip to
Boston have not been arranged. It Is ex
pected the engineers will leave here the

The question of remuneration for labor,
always a mooted one, Is susceptible of being
viewed from various standpoints.
In a small community In Texas where
water Is hard to find Mr. Henderson, the
owner of a well, fitted out with a patent
pump, was a person of consequence. It
was also a -matter of public concern when
the pump got out of gear and refused to
perform Us proper functions.
All the men In the locality spent the
day In Henderson's bsck yard, consulting
and "tinkering," Jointly and severally, at
the pump, but nil to no avail.
Finally along eame a young fellow, Joe
Brady by name, from a neighboring raach.
He looked the pump over, thought a couple
of minutes and Inside of two minutes more
had it In working order again. Approbation,
"Just name your price. Joe, my boy."
said the owner of the pump heartily.
Joe considered a bit and then said that
he guessed $5 would be about right.
There was a change at this, and remarks
of a different nature from approbation were
freely Indulged In.
"Now, see here, Joe." said the aggrieved
Henderson, "thought you was a square kind
of a chap. That ain't any white man's

and one of us could a-done what you done
and you wa'n't more'n five minutes doln'

Joe considered again.

turning on his heel.
When the bill came It read thus:

to the fresh Invlgoratlon. Now start the
dandelions, seedlings of those that made
the spring so cheerful amid the grasses
and along the roadside; not all of our
gold Is May's, they say; even now there Is
time for revival, and the goldenrods can
not monopollxe the aureate splendor. So
the buttercups are encouraged and send
out new blossoms on the old stems; It Is
but a trifling effort to do this, and If it be
In farewell. It Is also In promise. The
heart of the old earth beats now as svarmly
on the verge of sleep as when the year
The autumn sweetness Is In possession
of the wI.kIs that waft the pollen of
myriad flowers; and when the sun beams
strongest In midday the balsam of the firs
and pines and hemlocks floats out as
warmly as In summer noons. Beneath the
shades glow the crimson mushrooms and
the weird blossoms without foliage of the
coral root orchid haunt the rambler In those
sacred recesses. The nuts are beginning to
ripen and provident squirrels are clipping
them from their bunches In the air. Beech
nuts must be gathered early If they are
to be gathered at all, but even the other
nuts that are not ripe are subject to the
foreseeing enterprise of these shrewd
creatures. They have their concerns to
attend to, and do not neglect them.
There Is a calm and rest in the processes
of nature that deeply Impress the restless
and perturbed ' soul of man. To many
who are short of sight as to beauty and
significance In the work of nature, this
tenderness of the departing life Is melan
choly, as foretelling the harsh onset of
Imprisoning months, when the snows
come and the north wind, now only In
vigorating and welcome, shall be fierce and
forbidding of pleasure. This Is to take
but a petty thought out of the great
thoughts offered by the noble changes of
the encompassing life. Hour by hour the
life develops Into myriad manifestations
of beauty and glory; hour by hour these
fulfill their purpose and slowly vanish Into
memories; but the life Itself does not van
ish. In all things, as In man himself, the
phases melt and resolve into other phases.
Presently w shall see the superb and
lovely blossoming of the trees Into won
derful colors for flowers are but leaves
diverted from one form of service to an
other and a higher form, and the blossom
ing of the woodland Is redoubled and en
gloried above the gentler graces of spring
and summer. Already, for a month past,
there have been signal boughs of maple
and the sumach's reddening pinnate.; and
ferns have been growing pale and glowing
white In the shaded woods. Nothing Is
don In haste, but all In gracious and lov
Ing moderation, and when the splendors
come, we shall, have been prepared for
them In a thousand ways
The birds are going now: many, that go
a they will, have already grown few In our
region, and now the thickets, the fence
corners, the fields, know the assemblies
of one and another migratory family. The
shore birds are swinging over us, day and
day sandpiper and others that go In
flocks, bound for fields ot food that w
know not of. The voices of song ar fewer
as the fall comes on. But the bird that
sings no longer her may sing In Bouth
America, and all will return when they
know the sign that urges th.ra one again
northward. All Is as It should b with all
