is the united states guiltt of
sedition'?
It now appears tnai mr. eiward
atkius-jn, ot b)ston, seni pamphlets
to manila, which were really docu-j,
ments of he united stutes seuate.
we have already refe:red to the fact
thnf nnrvi ?he order of ihe postmaster >
General these pamphlets we.e takeu I
froc: fhd mail on tbe giouud that they j
would incite the America i soldiers to
mutiny and sedition. It seems hit
ths administration objcs to th-se
documents on the ground that they
criticise "the Philippine policy ol tne
Government" and advises "tbe v-Mmi
teers whose terms of service is about
to exoire not to re-enlist." A cabi
net officer h teported as taking ihat
Mr. Atkinson 'Ms unqussiionably
guilty of assisting an insarrecuon
against the authority of the United
States, and is subject to a term ot imprisonment
or & fine, or both." The
law cited to support this po-iti>? is

the United S ates, which provides for
the punishment of any person who
incites, 63ts on foot, vr assists in any
rebellion or insurrection against the
authority of the United Sta?<s or
"gives aid or comfort thereto." Postmaster
General Smith is red hot on
the subject. He Is quoted as saying:
"The pamphlets actually incite to
mutiny and it would be utterly unjustifiable
to permit their circulation
among the soldiers in the Philippines.
Their circa'at ion is a movement to induce
the soldiers to disobey orders,
aad in effect to embarrass and resist
tin Government. * * * He uot
only attacks the President and the
Government in the most violent lan
gnage, bat disputes the national policy,
but also calls on American troop3 to
defy tho Government."
What is ".he national policy" or
"the Philippine policy of the Government'?
This is what Mr. Atkinson
is said to have criticised, and yet
thousands of good loyal Americans
have ifesen anxiously inquiring what
i8 "the national policy." They catch
glimpses now and then, mere suspicion
of "the administration pelicv,"
and they do not like what tl ev se.j of
it. "The Philippine policy of the
Government" has not been decided by
s the American people, and they will
x not accept tho administration policy
for the Govern meats policy until it is
ratified by th) American people.
m.: /' We would not adviae an American |
soldier to disobey orders, and we do
not believe that he would take snch
advice if given. It woald be against
his traditions not to obey o:ders, but
the American citizen has a right to
question any public issu*. The American
citizen has always done so, and
he will do it so iong as this is a Republic.
Mr. Atkioson has briefly given his
si;?e of the pamphlet episode. He
states that the "compile ions of facts
? and figures" were "taken from debates
in the national House and Senate,
and caliiog attention to points overlooked
in debate." It farther appears
that some of the materia! is not new,
a3 the first edition "was printed Ia-t
November aDd was dedicated to
President MeKinley in support of his
statement that forcible annexation
would be critnin il aggression " That
the head of the administration should
have made a "statement" which is
now regarded as seditions is too funay,
and from this is would seem that Mr.
Atkinson can enj >y a good laugh on
the President.
B)th of thi pimphtets were published,
by order of the Senate, in the
Congressional Keord. Mr. Atkinson
concludes; "If it is unlawful for
a citizen of the United State3 to inform
other citizens in Manila by sending
them documents in a private
.-edition, which have been printed by
order of the United^Stsle* as public
' documents, I am content to leare the
matter at that exact point, which requires
no comment from me."
The case against Mr. Atkinson may
well rest wnere ne leit it. i
AX EMPIRE Hi SIGHT.
The average American citizen, per- |
hap9, does not fully appreciate thorough
what changes this country is
now passing, and the dangers that are
ahead of us. What wonderful things
have happened in our history since
Dewey sank \hi Spanish ship in
Manilla bay about one year age! We
have in so short a time seen the evidence
of the great power of the United
Slates among the nations of the world,
and a certain element including the
administration have been drunk with
our power, and a mad craze has seized
them to possess the ends of the earth.
The policy is a new one to the Republic.
and it will necessarily uproot
the fundamental principles of the
~ x
trOVerEineni as ituu uy vui iuici?u?;. I
In the brief space of a few months, |
many thoaghtful students of the evo-1
lution of oar history see an empire j
rising up in the distance to supplant a j
Republic. It is time for the people
B to begin to thick whither they are
bei'gledby the administration ternK
porarily in power, aDd to it quire
whether or not the Governmeut bemgg
longs to the administration or to !be
mg people. Shall the people decide
appi whether they shall "expand" or will
flSg the administration decide? We read
thoughtlessly that tbe administration 1
has ordered that certain articles shall
?1 be admitted free of doty into Cuba,
V passing it over as one of tbe incidents i
.hi t?
of a temporary miiitari government
there. Vie read almost as thoughtlessly
of the censorship of ietters from
the Philippines, attributing it to a
necessary military precaution for the
* ^ j ^
promotion off discipline ana aemauuuu
by the proper management of a war.
Militarism, however, leads to imperialism.
Governments do not
change in a moment; The changes
come gradually, often imperceptible
except to the diligent and thorough
student?statesman. Radical changes
creep on the governed step by step.
What an easy step from the military
rule in "our foreign possessions" to
radical cianges at home. Even now

in evidence. Imperialism must lead
to tyranny. An instance has been
reported. Edward Atkinson, an eminent
political economist who devotes
practically his life to economic questions,
is an anti-Imperialist. The Associated
Press, :a few days ago, sent
oat to its clients the following: "The
circulation of the anti-imperialistic
doenman'iS admitted to have been sent
ont by Edward Atkinson, of Boston,
was officially called to the attention of
Postmaster General Emery Soitb
to-day" (May 1st), "and is now pending
official action. In all probability
it will be taken np for official action
to-morrow."
Are we to lose the liberty of free
speech for the sak-s of Irapsrialism.
Is ir treason uot to agree wiib ihe a imiuis'ra'i
jii? We hive not seen the
literature m ?mioneri, bnt ii it is simply
an argument against imperialism,
where will the muzzling stop? Will
auii-Iasperialist newspapers be fuppressed?
Then will ic be trea?o.? for
a privite citizen ^in conversation with
his neighbor to express his views
against the policy of the administration?
Really it does seem that all
other issues should be subordinated
in 1900 to the one great issue left us
by the war.
THE DEAD CONFEDERACY.
Carolina Spartan.
Appropriate to this day 13 the ode
which Mrs. Clara Dargan Maclean
wrote for Confederate day in Atlanta,
daring the Exposition iu 1895. Mrs.
Maclean h is breathed into her song the
soul of the true poet, and the inspiration
of her pea has been ihe sacred
memory of those princip'e; for which
the South contended in uoble bttttie
and for which her most precious treasure
was sicrificed. Mrs. Maclean has
written many other poams and some
novels among which, "A Light 0'
Love" 13 a story of Cnarleston iu the
golden days before the war. One of
the stories won a prize offered by the
News and Courier in 1874, and is said,
it being a story of the war, to be oue
of the most striking pictures of the
great struggle ever penned. She is a
S>ouih (Jarolinian by oina ana sympathies
and is well known in ih:i world
of letters.

WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY AND IXSUi
LAB PREJUDICE.
There is a very genere tendency
auoug English scientific men to treat
Signor Marconi's system of wireless
> telegraphy with indifference and to
, prefer to it other systems invented as
will as developed in Great Britain.
Oi.e English professor, however,
9peaks a good word for it. Prof J. A.
I Fleming, in a recent letter to The
i Times, London, which has been
quoted in all the electrical journals,
say?, speaking of the Italian's recent
success in signaling to France:
"Within the last few days various
scientific men have been invited to
, give the pub ic the guidance of their
opinions oa the novelty and utility of
these demonstrations. These criticisms
for the most part have not been
of a very helpful character. The
geueral public are not much conc3rned
with question? of priority or with the
claims or suggestions of rival experi,
mentaiists, but th3y are interested in
^ ascertaining the serious possibilities
of that which has been actually
achieved * * * ;
I ^an not help thinking that the
timi has ariived for a little more
: generous appreciation by his scientific
, contemporaries of the fact that Signor
Marconi has by minute attention to
detail, and by the important addition
, of tbe loug vertical air wire, translated
one method of space telegraphy

experiments and placed it on the same
fbo.ing as regards, certainty of action
and ease of manipulation, so far as
present results show, a3 any of the
other methods of electric communication
employing- a continuous wire be?.

small achievement. The apparatus,
' moreover, is ridiculously simple and
not costiy. With the exception of the
flagstaff and 150 feet of vertical wire
I at each end, be can place 011 a small
kitchen table ibe appliances, costing
t not more than ? 100 in all, for communicating:
across 30 or even 100
miles of channel. With the same
simple means he has plactd a lightship
on the Goodwins in instant communication,
day and night, with the South
Foreland ligUtbonse. A toucn on a
key on board the lightship suffices to
ring an electric bell in the room at
South Foreland 12 miles away, with
the same ease and certainty with
which one can summon the servant to
one's bedroom at a hotel. Ar, at.
tendant now sleeps hard by the instruments
at South Foreland. If at
i any moment he is awakened by the
bell rang from the lightship, he is
' able to ri'ag up in return the Ramsgate
life-boat, and, it need be, direct it to
the gpot where its services are required,
wiihin a few seconds of the
arrival of the cali for help. Ia the f
presence of thu [enormous practical
i importance of this feat alone, a?d of
the certuinty with which communication
cm now be established between
slrp and shore without costly cable
or wire, -he scientific criticisms which
; have bccu launched by other inventors
against Signer Marconi's methods
I h?ro almcplher iii their aDDre
ciation of the practical significance of
the results he bas brought about.
The public, however, are not ia the
least interested in learning the exact
meed of meritt to be apportioned to
various investigators in the npbuildiog
of this result. They do, however,
want to know whether the new method
of communication across the Channel
established by the. expenditure of a
few hundred pounds will take the :
place to any considerable extent of
submarine "cables whick have cost i

To appreciate the necessary or pres- :
eot limitations of the method, it is
requisite to explain that each vertical
wire or rod connected to a Marconi
receiving or sending apparatus has a :
certain 'sphere of influence.' Signor t
Marconi ha? proved by experiment up
to certain limits teat the distance to <
which effective signaling extendi
varies as the square of the height of
rod. A wire 20 feet high carries the
effective signal ouc mile, 40 feet hfeb :
tvue miles, SO feet sixteen miles, and i
so on. Up to the present time he has i
not yet discovered any method of '
snieicung any particular iuu as iu i
render it responsive only to siguals '
coming from one station and not from i
all others within its spere ot influence.
* * I Bat this ofiers no difficulty. I
In an ordinary eleciric-bell system in a
hotel the servant recognizes the room j
from which the signal comes by means i
of a simp^s- apparatus called an indicator,
and a very similar arrangement ]
can be applied to distinguish the origin <
of an ether-wave signal when several ,
instruments are at work in a common '
region. * * * * * <

Mr. Ja rues E. Fry or, of Chester, Marries
Miss Edna May Mills.
Special to the Stale.
Blackstoek, May 4.?The most beatr
tiftil and charming church weddini
that the people of our quiet little city
hsvo ever witnessed was that o? Miss
Edna May Mills to Mr. Jame3 Ebci:
Pryor, of Chester, at 8 o'clock, in the
First Presbyterian Church, on tb(
evening of Wednesday, May 3.
The cbtirch was beautifully and artistically
decorated; the decorations
consisting altogether of green and
white. Everything conspired to make
the occasion all that could be wished.
Dame Nature hersulf allowed auspicious
and pleasant weather.
Across th;arch at the back of the
pulpit was a festoon ot evergreens.
Immedia'ely ander ;hi3 was another,
and suspended between these were the
lett< r3 M-F made of evergreen. The
pulpit was tastefully decorated in evergreens,
white ciroaiions and calls
lilic*. At the head of eich aisle was
an arch covered with evergreens interspersed
with white flowers, and
closed bv gates trimmed in ivy leaves.
About mid war of the aisles were similar
arches and from tbe top of one
swung an "M," and from the other a
UP."
At a few minntes past 8, the pipe
organ sounded forth in the strains oJ
Mendelssohn's wedding march, played
by Miss Jdnie Thompson. Th:s was
the signal for the two little flov^ei
girls, Misses Mary Kennedy and Annie
May Pryor, who cirne up each aisle
and opeued ihe gates under the arch;
following them" were the {ushers,
Messrs. Laurie Brice and Victor Ward
in the right ais!e, and Mes$r?rSann
Brice and Rando'ph Kiikpa'rick in
the left ais'e, who crossed,, over, ex

of the pulpit: next came Miss Strauss
Mills and Mr. Sidoey Davidson, who
like tha Utheia made a cross; foliowing
them tvas Miss Kathleen Ha!i with
Mr. \V, J. Simpson; the next couple
wa* Miss Jlel.-n Walker witb Mr. McNeace;
the next in order was MisEva

LYNN'S FLOATING BRIDGE. 1
In Use For a Century and Growing Better
All the Time.
A new ppf of three iucb planks is
required eve.> ill : i year in replanking
the floating bridge on Glenmore
pond. Few people of the hundreds
who cross the bridge dail> have any
idea of its great thickness, which has
been proved by recent soundings to he
aa rnnr.h as 17 feet in some nlaces. Al*
though so much thicker and heavier
than when first built, it seems to lave
lost none of its flexibility and always
adapts itself instantly to any changes
in the level of the water.
Floating bridge is one of the curiosities
of Lynn, and it is claimed to be
the only structure of its kind in the
world. In 1803 a bridge of somewhat
similar design was bnilt across Lake
Quinsigamond, nesr Worcester, but if
was constructed simply of two tiers
of log? cohered with plaDks and was
never saMe.uctory. The Lynn t>ri<lgf.
on the oih' r band, has been in constant
use vor nearly a century ai.d i*
stronger uow than ever, as the wood
does not rot unaer wsier, auu me [n.ic
logs which form the foundation at e
as firm as on the day when they we e
hewed and pnt together.
Captain Moses Brown was the originator
cf tiis idea of thus bridging
Collins pond, as if was then calleJ.
In March, 1802, a charter was granted
to the Salem Turnpike and Chelsea
Bridge corporation, and the bridge
was completed in 1804 at a cost of
$55,409. A diver has investigated the
foundations of the structure and has
fnnnd that, the original bridse was
made of five layers of pine, "laid at
right angles to each other. The first
two layers of pine logs were on one
side and the upper three of hewn
timber one foot square, the whole secured
together by three inch dowels
and covered wiih planking 5? feet
thick.
The bridge is 511 feet long, 28 feet
wide, and the pond which it crosses is
about 17 acres in area and about 64
feet above the sea level. The bed of
the pond appaars to be a bed of quicksand,
and it would be very difficult to
build a road around the pond with >ut
making a very long detour, owirg to
the boggv nature of tiie son. liie
bridge is kept from tipping over by
being moored at the ends, imbedded
in long trenches dug in the shores of
the pond at the approaches.?Boston
