BELGIAN DEFENDS LEOPOLD
T. Mellstrpm of Bruges Says Dead
AMERICAN COMMERCE IS GOOD
Traveler Declares tnat Increase in
Tariff Has Been Followed by
a Steady Growth of
''i v - :
According to T. Mellstrom of Bruges. Bel
gium, the tariff has not affected he bust
ness relations of the United State and
Belgium. Mr. MedUrtroni travels for Sander
son & Sons, one or the leading florists of
Uolslum, and was seen at the Paxton.
"The tariff on plants," said the man from
Belgium, "is 25 per cent ad valorem, which
Is a high tariff, but It has not affected our
business, which has Increased over 25 per
cent with the United States since the tariff
was In effect."
Speaking of t)ie late King Leopold and
conditions as they ealst In Belgium, ha
aid: "King Leopold was held In the high
est respect throughout the entire kingdom,
lie was a constitutional king and lived up
to the letter of the law, so that Belgium
expanded and grew prosperous under his
rule. He was a member of the Clerical
party, which Is now In power, but was
looked up to by the Liberals and also by
tho Socialists In so' far as any king could
be looked up to by the latter party.
"I am not a Catholic, nor a member of
the Clerical party; In fact, I am Inclined to
be a Liberal, but . I have the highest re
spect for the wisdom and honest rule given
the people of Belgium under the reign of
Leopold. He undertook a big thing In
Congo and deserves credit for the way In
whloh he handled the situation. He never
visited the oolony, as far as I know, and
It is not surprising that some of the na
tives might have been maltreated by the
white people who settled In Congo, but
such Is the history of nearly every colony
of Ignorant people settled by a wiser na
tion. If history Is correct, the American
Indians were not always treated as prop
erly as they should have been.
People Should Get Facta.
"People who know nothing of the situa
tion should not Judge until they get facts.
The English were bitterly opposed to
Belgium In the Congo and circulated some
rather hard stories about affairs, but I do
not believe them, neither do the Belgians.
The. . English are prejudiced and con.
sequently are not good judges. ' The Bel
gian people did not question the wisdom
of their king, and they were Inclined not
to pry Into his private life, saying that he
should be the Judge of that, as long as he
ruled the country according to the con
stitution, which he did.
"I do not believe that a king has as easy
a time as many who know nothing of his
duties and responsibilities would think.
Leopold was considered to be a good ruler,
and he encouraged his people to do big
things. 'Don't stop at details,' he would
say, 'but accomplish big things.' He was a
doer, and placed a great portion, of his
private capital In the Congo.
"Nebraska Is a great wheat raising state,
but the Belgians are up-to-date In this
respect. They cultivate their soli wltb
great care and much labor, so that excel
lent crops are obtained. The finest rye I
ever saw in Belgium. The Belgians
eat white bread, but besides raising wheat
they grow large quantities of rye for the
nation close at hand. I think that their
success as wheat growers comes from the
fact that they are careful farmers. Noth
ing is considered too much labor which
will benefit the soil and no trouble Is ex
perienced In getting the farmers to do In
tensive farming. In this country most of
the farming Is extensive, owing to the
large amount of land available, but Bel
glum is a small country and the people
aim to get the most possible out of their
limited amount of noil."

the Riding Tests
Robust Soldiers Make Their Ninety
Miles Without Being in the
Colonels Cornelius Gardener, Sixteenth
Infantry, and Thomas F. Davis, Eighteenth
Infantry, have completed the ninety-mile
riding test, as directed in orders from the
War department. These tests are generally
.aken by field officers of the United States
army during August of esch year, but ow
ing to Colonel Gardener's early departure
for Alaska he was directed to take this
ride at this time, as It would be In lieu of
the one required for him to take during
the fiscal year 1911. The ride oonslsts of
not less than thirty miles tor three days
In succession, under conditions suitable to
the making of forced marches in active
field operations, and were as follows:
First day, thirty miles. 1:40:00.
Second day, thirty miles, (:3S:00.
Third day. thirty miles, 7:06:00.
Prior to taking this ride the officers were
examined by Major J. T. Clarke, medical
corps, and First Lieutenant Blase Cole,
medical reserve corps, who constituted the
board of medical officers as directed In or
ders from department headquarters. Upon
the conclusion of the three days' march
they were again examined by the medical
board to ascertain whether cr not their
health had been Impaired by these rides.
