Dr. Charles F. Akd, the newly Im
ported New Tork pastor, and Luther
Burbank. the plant expert, have both
sounded warnings within the week
against dangers which threaten the fu
ture of the American people. Dr. Aked,
fresh from Europe, devoted his first
sermon to discussing the Immigration
question as presenting a problem for
solution by the American people. He
spoke pointedly of the menace to the
nation's future which Is a part of the
cargo of each Immigrant-laden vessel
arriving at our porta. "It Is a ques
tion." said Dr. Aked, "whether the
primal American stock Is vitiated by
the interpermeatlon of an Inferior
race," and he urged great caution In
the admission of Immigrants and In
their education and Instruction after
their admission. ,
Prof. Burbank seea a similar danger,
but he has a different remedy. , "We
are more crossed," says he, "than any
other nation In the history of the world
and her we meet the same results that
are always seen In a much crossed race
of plants, all the worst as welt as all
the best qualities of each are brought
out In their fullest Intensities." Prof.
Dnrbank would have plant cultivation
methods adpoted in population rearing,
crossing and development, combining
by gradual process the hothouse speci
mens with the hardy outdoor wild
plants, to the final production of per
fect species. Rome such method, he
Insists, is essential to the saving of
Americans of the future from the evil
Influences that come over with the Im
migrants from inferior European
Both Dr. Aked and Prof. Burbank
are worrying themselves needlessly
about the dangers that threaten the
"primal American stock." The "lnter
permestlon" of the races has been
going on since the days, now being
celebrated at Jamestown, when the
Anglo-Saxon landed In "Virginia, for
permanent settlement. The "interper
meatlon" has been going on for about
$00 years. The broadened field of op
portunity in America has furnished un
limited opportunity for the immigrant
to throw off and overcome his "Inferi
ority" and he has taken advantage of
It to an extent which robs the warnings
of racial alarmists of their terrors.
OPTIMISM VP THE QOVLDS.
George Gould and his associates in
the railroad business have refused to
share any of the gloomy forebodings
of other railway financiers as to the
outlook for either the immediate or
remote future of the transportation in
terests in this country. "The one great
problem which confronts all of the rail
roads," says Mr. Gould, "Is to furnish
facilities to handle the business of the
country, which la growing at an un
precedented rate and is already taxing
the .facilities of transportation com
panies beyond their limit. I have no
fears for the future. The country was
never bo prosperous nor the outlook so
bright as at the present time." Mr.
Gould adds an endorsement of Presi
dent Roosevelt's railway policy and ex
presses a belief that good would result
from the adoption of some system of
judicious government supervision over
issues of railway securities.
Moreover, Stuyvesant Fish, recently
elected a member of the board of di
rectors of the Gould system of rail
roads, furnishes evidence In an inter
view that thw Gould optimism is to
take the form of deeds, rather than
words. He explains that Mr. Gould
proposes to commence the general re
construction of the railroads of his
entire system, Intending to spend about
$100,000,000 a year for this purpose,
the work to extend over a period of ten
years. This Is no philanthropic move
on the part of the Ooulds. They simply
recognize that the country grtdlroned
by their rails .has developed 8 traffic
far beyond the possibilities of existing
facilities and that lmprovementsmust
be made to care properly for the busi
ness offered at profitable rates. The
determination of the Goulds to spend
a vast sum of money in Improving their
roads Is proof that they see no possi
bility of a serious halt In the progress
8ACCT NIC AH AQUA.
President Zelaya of Nicaragua ap
parently Is taking a mean advantage
of the fact' that Secretary Taft, the
political diplomatist of the administra
tion at Washington, has engagements
that will keep him busy for several
months. Under such conditions, the
Nlcaraguan president Is openly refus
ing to be satisfied with any peace prop
ositions offered by the United States
authorities looking to a settlement of
the troubles growing out of the latest
Central American revolution.
The trouble arises over the refusal
of Honduras to pay the expense of
being whipped by Nicaragua. Not satis
fled with achieving a victory over the
Hondurana and driving President B6
nllla Into exile, the president of Nica
ragua has filed a claim for Indemnity
la which he asks Honduras to pay all
the eipenses of both parties to the
contest. Honduras refused, and ap
pealed to President Roosevelt, who ad
vised Zelaya to make pear with Hon
duras and cut out the money consider
ation. Zelaya answers with a defiant
refusal to modify his terms and inti
mates that the Nlcaraguan forces will
be marching on Washington unless
President Rooaovelt backs down.
Th!o business of policing Central and
South America Is getting to be a pretty
big lob even for Uncle Bam. As soon
as one insurrection or revolution Is
suppressed trouble breaks out ts the
next block, and Mr. Taft cannot be la
more than three or four places at once.

at the same time.
TR HIQHIH PRICK LKTEtS-
The bureau of labor at Washington
has just completed the compilation of
statistics secured from a wide investi
gation Into the cost of living for the
year 110$. The figures now published
relate to wholesale prices, and the
bureau Is at work upon returns show
ing retail prices which will be printed
In July. The consumer will not be sur
prised to learn that the wholesale
prices of living commodities are still
increasing and are higher than at any
other time In the seventeen-year period
covered by the bureau's Investigations.
Wholesale prices on 268 commodities
reached a higher level in 1906 than
at any other period since 1889. The
average for the year was S.6 per cent
higher than for 1905, $6.5 per cent
higher than for 1897 and $1.4 per cent
higher than the average for the ten
years ending with 1899.
The Investigations by the bureau In
cluded prices of farm products, food,
clothes and clothing, fuel and lights,
building material, drugs and chemicals.
furniture and house furnishings and all
of the necessities of living. In but two
groups was a decrease In prices shown
In 1908, compared with 1905, In farm
products and drugs and chemicals. The
average price of farm products In 1906
was but one-half of 1 per cent less
than for 1906, not enough to make
any appreciable difference in the
family's butter, egg and milk bills.
Food as a whole increased $.6 per cent
over the average prices for 1905, the
Increases being In fish, fruit, hog prod
ucts, rice, milk and vegetables. Minor
decreases were shown In coffee, eggs.
beef, sugar, flour and tea. These de
creases were In wholesale prices only
and were not noticed In retail prices.
Of the seventy-five articles included In
the clothing group, sixty-six showed an
Increase In price, five were stationary
and only four showed a decrease. Coal
and fuel prices Increased and there waa
a big boost In metals, building ma
terials and all articles entering Into
house construction and house furnlsh
ln. Officials of the bureau of labor make
no attempt to explain the causes of the
rise and fall of prices, explaining that
the causes "are too complex, the rela
tive Influence of each too uncertain, in
some cases involving too many eco
nomic questions to permit their dis
cussion In an article dealing only with
the facts and figures." The consumer,
however, lias his own explanation of
the causes. While he may blame some
to trust combination and the manipula
tion of prices In food supplies, he
knows that the old law of supply and
demand Is working overtime. With
work for every man, at advanced
wages, with an unequaled export de
mand, with the population increased
greatly by natural growth and Immi
gration, the mills and factories and
farms have been overtaxed to supply
eager customers waiting with cash In
hand. The people are buying more anil
better goods than ever before and in
creased prices are Inevitable until the
factories and farms get ahead of the
demands upon them.

A list of most excelUyit laws passed by tha

said: "You want to stand up for- Ne

Tha hour ia come because the struggle is

And holds the Jamestown fair.
Where long ago the painted brave
Propelled his birch cam.
The fleets of mighty naval powers
Are anchored on the blue;
A thousand silken banners gay !
Are fluttering In the air,
And batteries from every ship
Salute the Jamestown fair.

Three centuries of renown
In war and pence have won for her
A fadeless laurel crown.
The fruits of all her years of toll
Are proudly garnered there
Beneath the countlesa clustered rooBJJ
That mark the Jamestown fair.
From Indian tepees she has reared
The palaces of trade.
From strings of savage wampum shells
The gold of commerce made.
The smoke from her tobacco crops
Is fragrant everywhere,
Ami like an asure aureole
Surrounds the Jamestown fair.

Among the glittering spires
Arising from the ashes gray
Of ancient council fires,
And ready to receive her friends
With pride beyond compare,
Bhe opens wide her spacious gates
