A letter written by former United
States Senator William V. Allen has
been siren publicity which would indi
cate that the great leader of the pop
ulist party of Its palmy days is In
sharp disagreement with William J.
Bryan, who Is trying to make a new
populist party out of the. democracy
Tho pith of the Allen statement is to
bo found In tho concluding para
graphs, which" are herewith repro
Wblla I have always yielded assent to
the doclrlna of tha Initiative and refer
endum, I have never regarded It as a
panacea tor political evils. I readily
recognise the benefit to bs derived from Us
adoption and enforcement In municipalities,
but In state and national affairs. It seems
to ma. It will be so cumbersome and expen
sive as to ba practically worthies. In
faot tha expanse of It enforcement will be
ao enormous, that by comparison the bur
dens of the tariff will be as light as a
feather. Besides it will rob our legislator
of that independence of Judgment and
character which must always, characterise
competent and efficient of floors.
The so-called recall Is entirely visionary
and wholly Impracticable, and I know of no
man whose Judgment Is worth following,
or any political party that appeals to pub
llo, approval, that Is In favor of It.
In my Judgment a serious mistake was
made by all political parties in adopting
what Is called the "primary nominating
system.' It is utterly destructive of that
Individual .Interest that must always be
taken In the affairs of the state and na
tion to make the enactment of laws and
their administration, effective. While it
may ba true that a nominating convention
is' attended by some evils. It Is likewise
true that those evils are due to the In
attention of the people. The people can,
if they will, control any convention, and
experience shows that they are more ne
lectful of the so-called primary election
than of the convention. If the people will
not - Interest themselves In the affairs of
the government to the extent of leaving
their fields, offices and shops a sufficient
length of time to discharge their political
duties, evil consequences most follow as a
result Bo that vice is not in the eon
ventlon system, which has many commend
able features, such as profitable Inter
change of ideas among Its members, but In
the failure of Individuals to devote proper
attention to publlo affairs.
The so-called Oregon plan of electing
United States senators is a flat violation
of the latter and spirit of the constitution
of the United States, and is bound to re
sult in evil consequences, the result of
which cannot be foreseen.
It was the Judgment of the constitutional
convention . over which Washington pre
sided that the federal features of our gov
ernment constituted the foundation of the
governmental struoture. These features
comprise the present constitutional method
of electing United States senators, the
method of selecting the federal Judiciary.
These are three Indispensable elements of
stability, no one of which can be removed
with safety to the political edifice.
I feel deeply that we are entering upon
a period of dangerous fads; of dangerous
experimentation. That true security and
safety are to be found In a speedy return
and a rigid adherence to those primary
principles of government that have guided
us for more than a century and a quarter
of national existence, I do not permit my
self to doubt.
Without commenting favorably or
unfavorably upon ex-Senator Allen's
views, we aubmit that they will beat
careful reading and rereading.
and not exploitation. Newspapers and
magazines might help materially in
this good work, too, If they would. It Is
understood that the president has in
structed his cabinet officers to ascer
tain all they call as to what, it any, mis
takes have been made by any of the
government's representatives in the
conduct of affairs In Alaska and the
best means of correcting them. This
ought to comfort those anxious guar
dians of the national honor who have
been sitting up nights waiting to see
some pirate ship sail away from the
Alaskan roast with the whole territory
aboard, gold, coal, timber, power sites
Now that we have disposed of all
the contiguous territory by molding
It into states, the nation has more time
to devote to working out Alaska's des
tiny and, while Its statehood may be
remote, It Is nonetheless essential that
its physical development be taken up
without delay even more assiduously
and systematically than has yet been
done and this is wliat, evidently, the
president propose to do.
Before the most intelligent develop
nient of Alaska is possible the govern
ment must have more accurate Infor
mation as to what la to be developed.
The secretary of the .interior himself
reports to the president that with all
the Immense fields of .coal land in that
kingdom, the explored portion Is only
20 per cenT of the supposed area,
which is said to cover 1,200 square
miles. The need . of Immediate sur
vey work, then, Is apparent and

for responding to the public demand

the fact that It Is also enjoying more

Exports and Imports!
The United States' foreign com'
merce shows an improved condition
for the year closing June 30 over last
year and a most encouraging tendency
as to the relation of Imports to ex
ports. The total business for the year
came to $3,250,000,000, with imports!
at $1,500,000,000 and exports $1,750,.
000,000, to use round numbers. To
be exact there is an excess of exports
over imports or just i87,ni,349.
This, to be sure, is not as great an
excess as has been shown in late yearn,
but it represents such a large gain in
that direction as to furnish all the en
couragement which the government
and private business require at this
time. It indicates that, after exerting
all the influence of the new tariff law,
the government has succeeded in
changing the eurrent of commerce and
getting it started back once more in
the desired direction.
, Tho value of our imports Is larger
than In any previous year, but at the
same time our exports have exceeded
those of any year except 1907 and
1908. and with, the tendency as It Is
the gain in exports over Imports should
be continuous from now on, other
things being equal. The country had
gone too strongly to imports because
It had been drifting too much toward
overconsumption and. prices were be
ing advanced .too much In comparison
with prices in Europe and as a natural
consequence imports increased, while
exports fell off. The reversal of con
ditions, therefore, is the best proof
that our commerce is put back on a
sound basis and since this has been
accomplished in the last year, during

Kinal action has utt yet been taken on
the adoption of the equipment for the foot
soldier, recommended by the special board
which conducted Its Investigations and ex
periments at Rock Island during the p"t
year or more. The, comment of the cniers

feature of the equipment, are still before
the special infantry committee of the gen
eral staff. It Is expected the final report
will be rendered during the coming week.
n the meantime, the preliminary steps are
being taken to furnish parts of the new
equipment, aa far as may be, to some of
the regular Infantry troops at the various
encampments, with a view to further try

braces instruction in the measurement of
Individuals to determine the else of gar

nomenclature, computation of cost of labor
in the manufacture of various articles and
the making out of requisitions, contracts,
etc. The lecture Include the subject of
fabrics, tableware, headgear, underwear
munical Instruments, etc. It is proponed to
extend the Instruction to Include the care
of public animals and the economical op
eration of heating and power plants. It Is
appreciated that there must be a somewhat
varied course for the reason that the men
who are appointed post quartermaster ser
geants do not come from the same souce
and have no had the advantage of ldentl
cal experience In service.
The questlqn which has been long under
discussion between the surgeon general
and the commissary general of the army
concerning the allowance of sick ration at
military hospitals has been settled by the
acting secretary of war. 'It was recom
mended by the surgeon general that the
sick ration be Increased from 30 cents to
0 cents. Formerly this ration amounted to
cents, but It was decreased at different
times to 40, 38 and 30 cents. It was pointed
out by Surgeon General Torney that the
30-cen allowance was Insufficient, con
sidering the Increase In the cost of food
and the necessity for delicacies and "best
portions" for those who are convalescing.
The commissary generad took the position
that the 30-cent ration was sufficient, In
view of the fact that many of the patients
were not able to Indulge In solid food. The
War department has decided that the 40-
cent ration shall be established at the gen
eral hospitals only, which Includes the
division hospital at Manila. The Increased
ration will not apply to any of the post
hospitals, although it has been considered
by the medical officers that It is as much
needed there as at the general hospitals,
ine surgeon general also recommended
that the ration of the female nurses be In
creased to 60 cents,, owing to the fact that
these nurses Tav4 a separate mess and are
not in sufficient numbers at any place to
permit much of a saving In the ration. The
War department has allowed 40 cents in
stead of the 60 cents recommended.
The extension of the business of selling
articles to enlised men of the army on the
Installment plan have reached such pro
portions that It Is . considered proper for
military authorities to Interpose with reiru
lations which shall place a limit upon this
ciass or commercial transactions. It has
been pointed out to the War Department
that many enlisted men obligate themselves
to a form of' Installment Indebtedness
which Is sometimes impossible for them to
dlsoharge. The articles that are purchased
are frequently of the class of luxurle
which the soldiers do not need and which
have no service value. A report received
from Captain Henry J. Hatch of the coast
artillery corps has precipitated the Is
sue. That officer has expressed the view
that this installment traffic is proving del
rlmental to the service. In which expression
of opinion he is sustained by the post com
mander, who ' adds that the rrethods oil
some of the installment companies are
positively mlschevlous and that a number
of the concerns whioh have encouraged
soldiers to go Into debt In this way have
resorted to methods which are nothing
short of malicious. Having regard to the
rapidly Increasing number of transactions
of this character, it Is believed by the W'a
department that the time has come to
adopt a policy In respect to sales to en
listed men. The traffic is one from which
the soldier derives no real benefit and the
obligation Incurred, extending over con
slderable periods of time, are not fully
appreciated by those who voluntarily sub
Ject themselves to their operation. Th
War department will no longer concern It
self with the business and all communica
tions In respect to such sales and all ar
rangements looking to such relations must
be had with the commanders of the organ!
satlon to which enlisted men belong. The
department will decline to assist In secur
ing the payment of the obligations inotirred
without a previous knowledge and consent
of the officer commanding the company or
detachment to which the Installment
debtor belongs. Where debts are contracted
by enlisted men for reasons which are
necessary In the performance of their en
llstment contracts, such as post exchange
clothiers, shoemakers, and so forth, the
practice of the department will continue
unchanged. It Is only where transactions
are entered into on the installment plan
that a change in the policy of the depart
ment Is made.
