senate against the adoption of the
emergency currency bill, Senator 1a

organs aa a champion of the people, a
man with the courage of his conviction,
fighter against the aggressions of the
money power, a republican worthy of

The chief objection to the leave to
print plan Is that it allows members
Of congress to insert in the official
record "whatsoever they may evolve out
of their Inner consciousness" and these
rulminatlons go to the public without
the answer and challenge that would
have met them Jiad they been uttered
In debate on the floor. The plan
violates parliamentary privilege. Is
unfair to all sides and calculated to
mislead. Durfng the session of t-;i

although other members have tiwh
recourse and ail, opportunity to rtjly
to speeches prlnttnl under such toadi
tlona. There Is no r Lance, however, to
reply to speeches prepared and piluted
after the adjournment. '
Another objection to the system is
the needless expense It entails upon
the government. Copies of the Con
gretsnlonal Record containing thoae
speeches are furnished by th govern-1
hirered by the thousands or hundreds

Twenty-five years ago there occurred one
of tne wonders of the world. It was the
opening on May 24, 1SS3, with a great dem
onstration of the Brooklyn bridge. In com
memoration of that event American flags
were flung to the breeaes yesterday from
the top of the great stone towers.
For a few years after the opening wise
acres, looking up from the ferryboats,
held many conferences 'aa to how long the
structure would last. They never dreamed
that the, bridge could possibly stand the
strain put upon it for a quarter of a cen
tury. In fact, soon after the opening there
was much discussion over what was termtd
the "folly of permitting heavily laden
wagons on the roadway. Whle the record
of the number of persons 'crossing the
bridge Is no longer kept, the number of
trolley cars alone crossing gives a fair

FIRST OF THE DREADNOUGHTS.
Launch of the Michigan Marks a err
Era In the Mary.
With the launching of the Michigan In
the Delaware river from Cnmden, the
new nRvy" of the t'nited States enters
on Its third stage. The first came when
four cruisers were built twenty-five years
go. The second arrived when the four
battleships, which were at Santiago were
planned and launched from ten to fifteen
years ago. The third comes with the
launch off the first all big gun battle ships,
the other being bullfc In this city.
With these vessels the United States for
the first, time takes an even start with
other powers In the naval race. When the
cruisers were built, other powers had been
launching cruisers for twenty yeara. Battle
hips had been building as long when the
Massachusetts waa planned. But the Michi
gan repreaents the Dreadnought type, less
than three years old, and the United States
from the atart matchea any power In them
The Michigan Is not only 16.000 tons, and
therefore larger than Ita predecessors and
close to the Dreadnought at 17,900 would
be as big If naval expert's advice had
been followed but its battery Is all con
centrated. Instead of guna of 12-inch. 8-Inch
and 16-Inch it carrlea eight 12-Inch guns
where other battleships as big carry four.
Thla not only doublea the amount of fire
on one vessel, but It Is .believed that eight
guns firing together on one battleship can
do far more than tho divided fire of four
guns each on two battleships.
No one has yet tried this in act,lon. At
Santiago at point-blank rangea of under
two miles no 12-inch or 13-inch gun hit
anything, but a revolution haa taken place
alnce then In naval markmanshlp. The
Japanese ara believed to have used their
12-Inch guns with effect at Shushlma and
began fire at a range of four miles.
