Lesson In Patriotism.
SAN FRANCTSCO Feb. 23. The
"parade" yesterday in celebration
of Washington's birthdiiy'seemrd nb-
surb to the heedless ami Pathetic to
the old fashioned pat riot. In a way
it was a sharp rebuke administered
l y a hnmlful of bo s to ti.ose orgaiii
zations from whjch something was to
lave been expected in the., obser
vance of one of the Nation's days of
Several weeks ago the First Corps
Cadets, an in Jependetit military
organization composed of very young
men, began to work up a parade
plan. After hard worlt it persuaded
the various authorities to acquiesce
in a plan to have the regular Army
companies, the naval marines and
the National Guard of the S ate,
participate. The programme was
arranged with this understanding,
but at the last moment notices were
received from all the organizations
which were expected expressing
regret that they would be unable to
join in the celebration.
Undismayed by the failure of the
troops to appear for the parade,
the cadets formed their line of march
on Grant avenue, near Bush, at 10
o'clock yesterday morning and moved
over the original line of march down
Grant avenue to Market street, to
Golden Gate avenue, to Jefferson
square, where they were drawn up
Following the Cadet Corps came a
company of little e.hjps from . the
Boys' and Girls' Aid Society, eeven
five strong, commanded by Abraham
Lincoln Pierce, aged 6 years.
At Jefferson square the companies
were drawn up in platoons and list

Taft Talks Of Canal
DETROIT, Feb. 20. Secretary
of War Taft last night, at the annual
dinner of tho Detroit Board of Corj
merce, discussed the building of the
Panama canal. Secretary Taft told
of tha improved sanitary renditions.
He then discussed the Panama Rail
road, and said:
"That railroad needs a thorough
re-epuipment. We shall have to build
a second track and many miles of
sidings. For, bear in mind, that the
difficulty of constructing the canal
is not digging, but disposing of what
we have excavated . I think 1 have
said enough to indicate that there is a
great deal lo do before the dirt be
gins to fly. The trouble with the
American people is that they want
everything to be done the next morn
ing. The danger is, not that we
begin too late to dig, but that we
begin to early.
"Now, a word 83 to investigations
We have had a good many recently
in Washington. The President and
all in authority are glad that the
Senate committee is now making a
full and complete investigation into
every statement of improper condi
tions of any sort on the isthmus
regardless of by whom made. But
after one thorough investigation has
been completed, and every tru'hful
man uiid every liar has been heard
then let the wo-k go on. You cannot
be answering questions and building a
canal at the same time.. You can
not have the chief engineer and the
other constructing officers engaged
in that work both in Washington
and on the isthmus. 'Therefore I
say that all those who wish to be
heard ought to bo heard or ever
after hold their peace."

ways in a hurry; always restless; al
The single word "wait," his holi

thing. It has vet to be applied.

exact position of our adversaries we
will in turn disclose ours. We are

To Build Piers - At Jamaica
NEW YORK, February 14 E. H.
Harriman is to establish a great ter
minal station at Jamaica bay, where
steamers may load and unload, thus
obviating the tortuous trip to the
piers of Manhattan. For the present
these plans contemplate a freight
service only. - '
To develop this great scheme will
require the expenditure of approxi
mately $25,000,000 and will involve
the building of a system of piers, a
breakwater, the dredging of the
channel and its maintenance.
Harriman owns at the western end
of Rockaway point, at the entrance
to Jamaica bay, a tract of some 400
acres. On the bay front of this tract,
offering a sheltered harbor, well pro
tected from the storms that sweep
the Atlantic coast, there is a depth
of water varying from twenty to six
ty feet. With a comparatively small
amount of work for clearing the bot
tom and deepening it in some places,
a waterway would be provided for
the largest ocean steamers.
