Work that Lies Ahead.
And now, fellow citizens, my fellow
Americans, exactly as all of us, whether
we live lit the east or the west, in the
north or the south, nave the right merely
as Americans to feel pride In every great
aeed done by an American in the past,
and exactly as we are knit together by
this common heritage of memories, so we
are knit togetner Dy the. bo. id of our com
mon duties in the present, our common
Interests In the future. Many and great
problems -lie before us. If we treat the
mighty, memories of the . past merely as
excuses for tutting laslly down in the pres
ent, or for standing aside-from the rough
work of the world, then these memories
will prove a curse instead of a blessing.
But if we treat them as 1 believe we shall
treat them, not as excuses for inaction,
but as Incentives to- make us snow that

In foreign affairs we must make up our
rhtnds that' whether we wish it or not, we
are a greuf people and must play a great
part in the woild. It is not open to us
t choose whether we will play that great
part or. not. We have to-play It; all we
can decide. . Is whether we shall play It
well or Hl. And I have too much confidence
ih my countrymen to doubt what the deci

should be one of peace, but not the peace

It evident that we do not act through fear

In doing Justice to others and scrupulous
in exacting Justice for ourselves. We must
beware equolly of that sinister and cynical
teaching which would persuade us to dis
regard ethical standards In international
relations, and of the- po less hurtful folly
which would stop the whole work of civil
isation by a well meant but silly persis
tency in trying to Apply to people unfitted
for them those theories of government and

of order in the coasts and Islands of the

wise and generous aid we can help even
the most backward of peoples In these
coasts and Islands forward along the path

help the result will be bad both for them

', Problems at Home.
The problems that face us abroad are Im
portant, but the problems that face us at
Lome are even more Important. The extra
ordinary growth of industrialism during the
i last half century brings every civilized
' people face to face with the gravest so
cial and economic questions. This is an
age of combination among capitalists and
combination among wage workers. It Is
Idle to try to pruvent such combinations.
Our efforts should be i to see that they
work for the good and not for the harm
of the body politic. New devices of law
ure neceeeary from time to time In order
to meet the changed and changing condi

Square Deal fof All.
Bo it Is In civil life. The government
was formed with as Its basic idea the
nrlnrlnli nf treating each man on his worth
as aman, paying no heed as to whether he
was-- rich or poor, no heed to his creed
or his social standing, but only to the way
in' which he performed his duty to hlmseit,
to his neighoor, to the state. From this
principle we cannot alTord to vary by so
much as a hand s breadth. Many repub
have risen in the past, and some of them
flourished long, but sooner or later they
fell: snd the cause most potent in bringing
about their fall was in almost all cases
the fact that they grew to be governments
In the Interest of a class instead of gov
ernments In the Interest of all. It made
no difference as to which class it was that
thus wrested to Its own advantage the
governmental machinery, it was as fatal
to the cause of freedom whether it was the
rich who oppressed the poor or the poor
whe plundered the rich.- The crime of
brutal disregard of the rights of others
Is as much a crime when It manifests
Itself in the shape of greed and brutal
arrogance on the one side as when It mani
fests Itself In the shape of envy and law
less violence on tho other. Our aim must
be to deal Justice to each man; no more
and no less. This purpose must find its
expression and support not merely in our
collective action through the agencies of
the government, but In our social atti
tude. Rich man and poor man must feel
alike that on the one hand they are pro
tected by law and that on the other hand
they are responsible to the law; for each
is entitled to he fairly dealt with by his
neighbor and by the state; anil if we as
citizens of this nation are true to our
selves and to the traditions of cmr fore
fathers such fn'.r measure of Justice shall
be dealt to -each man; so that as far as we
can bring It about each shall receive his
Hues, each shall be riven the chance to
I show tho stuff there is In him, shall be
secured against wrong . ana in turn pre
vented from wronging others. More than
this no man Is entitled to, and less than
this no man shall have.

NEW TORK, Oct. 18.-The district at
torney's office was called upon today by the
legislative insurance Investigating company
because of the testimony of one witness and
the question ot an arrest for perjury Is now
being considered by Assistant District At
torney 'Rand. The witness In question is
Geotge J. Plunkett, an 18-year-old telephone
operator In the .employ of the stationery
firm of L. W. Lawrence & Co., from whom
the Mutual Life Insurance t-ompany pur
chased a great deal of Its supplies of this
nature. It was brought out in yesterday's
testimony thst among ' the vouchers for
money charged to legal expenses was one
for IVOl signed by George J. Plunkltt. His
identity was not disclosed until today,
when Plunkitt was called to the stand. He
testified as to his employment and when
shown the voucher denied that he had ever
signed it. He further denied that he had
ever received that amount of rnonear from
the Mutual Life Insurance company or that
he had rendered the company any service.
Mr. Hughes asked Plunkltt tn write his
name In Ink on a piece of paper, which he
did. This and the voucher .was then of
fered In evidence and the similarity of the
signatures was called to the attention of
the committee.
Shortly after this incident the sergeant-at-arms
was sent to communicate with the
district attorney's office and soon Mr. Rand
appeared. He was escorted to a seat beside
Chairman Armstrong, and for a tirne he
critically examined the signatures. All that
Mr. Rand would say was that he had been
summoned by Chairman Armstrong, and
when the chairman Was questioned he said
the matter was now out of the hands, of the
committee and "was up to the district at
torney's office." . . , .
Tilt Between Hnahea and Seek.
Another feature of the day's hearing
was the passage at arms between Chair
man Armstrong, Counsel Hughes and
James M. Beck, counsel for President R.
A. McCurdy. Mr. Beck accused Mr.
Hughes of misleading the public by not
following out his lines of Interrogation to
the end, and asserted that he dropped a
subject before the witness was allowed to
explain. Chairman Armstrong then said
that the work of the committee niuat not
be obstructed. The committee, he said,
wanted all the Information it could get
that would be helpful and the witness had
placed himself In the position he followed
himself by his continual evasive answers.
Mr. Armstrong said further that every
witness will be treated with all possible
courtesy. Mr. Hughes then said if he had
erred it was by showing courtesies when
circumstances justified an entirely differ
ent course, adding that evasion would be
held up to the contempt It has always
received. There was a spontaneous out
burst of applause when Mr. Hughes had
concluded, which was stopped only by a
threat to clear the room.
House for Lobbyists.
William M. Carpenter, a clerk In the sup
ply department of the Mutual Life Insur
ance company, made an excellent witness
for the commission by his frank manner
and apparent desire to give whatever in
formation ha o--ivld upon fiie matter before
the committee. Mr. Ctrenter was- under
the direction of A. C. Fields, the 'iipeTin
tenfleut of this department and was very
close to Mr. Fields In his "legislative .su
pervision" at Albany. Mr. Carpenter told
of hov a house had been maintained In
Albany for several years at the expense of
the Mutual Life. Mr. Fields occupied , It
only during the legislative session and on
several occasions two members of the leg
islature lived at the house with Mr. Fields.
Mr. Carpenter leased the houses and paid
for the servants and supplies With money
furnished him by the Mutual Life. He did
not know whether these members of the
Insurance company ever shared fn the ex
pense; he never received any money from
them; but he said they might have paid
Mr. Fields. No account wns kept of these
expenditures, and the money was all r
cel'ed on vouchers calling for disburse
ments for legal expenses. A house has been
maintained for a period of nhotit ten years
In Albany under these conditions, but riot
always In the same street.
Later In the dsv, when McCurdy was re
called, the president said he did not know
that the Mutual Life's funds had been
maintaining this house, although he did
know that Mr, Fields had rented a house
to escape the risk of Illness In hotels. He
was assured Mr. Fields pild P) rent. Mr.
Carpenter said the entire exnense of run
ning the house had been about t?.5no.
. Thomas It. Jordan Mlsslnar.
An attempt was made by Mr. Htirhes
today to get trace of Thomas P. Jordan,
former controller of the E'juitahle Life As
sura nee society. Frank B. Jordan was
called under a subpoena and he said he
saw his father last Labor day. He did not
know then that he was srlng awav and
did not know where he ws now. Tndr per
sistent questioning by Mr. Husrhes ynttns;
Jordan said no mail was forwarded to his
father and that e dirt not know whether
his father or hla mother were living or
Edgar W. Rogers, a clerk for L. W. Law
rence A Co., was called and was repre
sented by John B. Stancbfleld. Rogers Is
also the president of the Globe Printing
company. He was shown the Plunkltt
voucher and said he was of the opinion
that the signature on the voucher and that
written by Plunkltt on the stand were
Identical. He could rot recogiilie either of
them definitely aa the signature of Plunkltt.
A voucher drawn. In TVeemher, 19o, for
I1.Rff7.50 and signed by Rogers was chareed
to les-al services of the Mutual Life, but
Rogers could not remember the circum
stances of a transaction so far hack. He
scknowledged that It bore his signature
and that he must have received the moner.
hut for what It was disbursed he could not
remember. The checks for which both
IHunkltt's and Rogers' vouchers were signed
were ordered to le produced, and they will
be presented at a later session of the com
mittee. Toward the close of the day's session Mr.
McCurdy was being- Interrogated on the
trust companies with which tho Mutual

WASHINGTON, Oct. 18-The special
agents of the Treasury department recently
succeeded In locating-a Valuable diamond
necklace which . wsa Smuggled into the
country and -securing a-large amount of
customs duties, which the owner sought to
evade. Bem -weeks ago the treasury offi
cials secured information that a woman of
means, living In News fork, had purchased
abroad a necklace, for which she paid $21,
000, and had succeeded In getting It through
the line cf baggage Inspectors st New
York. Her name and residence were given
to the customs .officials, wjio went promptly
to work on the case. On calling at her
house It was learned that she had gone to
Philadelphia, where , they followed her.
From Philadelphia she, went to Chicago and
from there to Boston, thence to New York
again, the customs officers In close pursuit.
She was finally found In a New York
theater. When approached the woman said
that the diamonds tn the necklace she then
wore were not genuine- and pleaded with
the officers-not to publicly disgrace her by
making the arrest In the theater, promising
to them to surrender the necklace she had
procured in Europe If they called at her
home the next morning-, but on the officers
going, to the residence 'the next morning
the woman was not to"be found. ' Her at
torney culled on the officials that afternoon
and In her name paid to them about I13.000,
which represented 1 the duties properly

LAKE MOHONK :. 7., Oct. 18,-The I
Lake Mohonk conference of Friends of the
Indian and Other Department Peoples was I
opened today by Alfred K. Smiley. It was
on Mr. Smiley's Invitation that persons
particularly Interested In the Filipinos, the
Ha walla ns and the Forto means Joined
with those especially Interested In the
Indians, in the-yearly meetings at Lake
Rev. Dr. Lyman Abbott, editor of 'The
Outlook" presided. He dellverd an address,
saying In part:
It Is the American conscience that creates
the Indian problem. Tne American con
science asks not "What shall we do?" but
"What ought we to do? How shall 6H.0O0.0U)
of peopl. themselves partly civilised,
civilise 300.000 men and women In language,
in customs and In religions?
Civilisation Includes three processes.
First Is the establishment of a Just govern
ment, so that fundamental rights shall be
adequately protected I'nder the reser
vation system, the Indian was denied all
these rights. Thanks Isrgely to the In
fluence of this conference, treaties with
tribes are no longer mad; the tribal
relation Is no longer recongnlzed.
The second step In the development of ft
people Is adequate provision for their edu
cation. But these two processes are not
sufficient to solve the Indian problem, be
cause Just government and secular educa
tion are not sufficient to clvlliie a people.
I received last wcrk from Miss Annie
Beecher Scovllle a letter describing certain
conditions as she found them af the Winne
bago agency In Nebraska. It said:
"This trib" flf'pen or twentv years ago
rfas considered t-ie of the thriftiest,, hard
est working tribes In the country, so we
got thei- land allotted and the Dawes bill
gave tl cm rltuienshlp. At once a system
of leasiiiir and buying their votes began to
grow and the people were weakened by a
w'orse system than rations. Three years
ago an order went Into effect that heirship
land could be sold and since that all work
lias ceased, drink and gambling are run-hlng-
KITeet of Conrt tleelslnn.-
Tlie evils here described are aggravated
as a result of the decision ot the I'nlted
States supreme court that the Indian who
has received his allotment of land and be
come a citizen can no longer be prevented
from purchasing liquor under reservation
regulations. Civilization carries with It
evils as well as benpfils. The remedy Is
not l"s?ned development, but lar-er,
broi.5;t. better development. The Indian

merit In civilisation. We must furnish him
wit'u the inspiration which the ten com

It .. - - t ..... Hiiallns-s with the !
r mra raoe. The country Is beginning to see
' that to make the negro safe to his neighbor
and to himself, to mike him a civinsea nu
man being, moral development must keep
pace with the Intellectual culture and with
the political emancipation. This, then,
seems to be the problem which in the fu
ture will press most heavily upon the
friends of the Indian.
How to Help the Indians.
First We must do for the Indian what
we are beginning to do for our public
schools In the states: Insist upon some
thing more than merely academic qualifica
tions In the teacher. We can do something
to create a public opinion which shall keep
the Indian schools out of reach of political
Influence and which shall give to them
teachers Imbued with the spirit of a Gen
eral Armstrong and a Booker T. Washing
ton and thus make the government scbf.ola
morally and lnsplratlonally aa woll tis Intel
lectually educative.
Second We can do for the Iridinn what
untier- ine inspiration or nmii-r vthmiuhb-

Work of Indian Buretio.
Dr. Abbott was followed by Miss Emily
S. Cooke of the Indian office, who spoke on
the "Resume of the Tear's Work of the
Indian Bureau." Miss Cooke said In part:

average attendance has been 28 455.
Of the 2.400 persons ehinloyed In Indian
schools, one-third are Indians. More and
more Indians are seeking employment and
railroads, ranches. het fields, etc., are
coming to depend on this Intelligent though
somewhat fitful labor.
Unfortunately they handle much more
money than they earn. From the sales of
Inherited lands the Indians continue to
gain large revenues of which their white
neighbors stand ready to despoil them
The lensing of Indian lands, alloted and
unalloted. assumes larger proportions each
year. This gives money to the Indians and
work to the ants. hut has little tendency
to forward Indian, civilization.
The decision of the supreme court f the
lnltd Stites in the "Heff case" that It Is
not Illegal to sell liquor to an Indian allot

vastly to the difficulty of keeping Indians
