The President's Message.
Those who do not find time tc road
the President's message may tret the
substance of it in the following
, He begins by recommending the
enactment of a law forbidding direct
or Indirect contributions for political
purposes by corporations, and an
others conferring upon the Govern
ment the right of appeal upon ques
tions of law in criminal cases. lie
also recommends a law providing that
in United States courts no judgment
civil or criminal, shall be set aide for
technical error unless, in the opinion
of the reviewing court, the error re
sulted 1 i miscarriage of justice. He
suggests the passage of some law
calculated to prevent or remedy any
abuse of the power of injunction with
out impairing its efficiency when H
ougbt to be employed. Incidentally,
he expresses the opinion that Judges
are not, and should not be, above
criticism in the press, or elsewhere,
for their judicial acts, and that
lynching is a blot on our civilization.
Abhorrence is expressed of the de
magogues who, under the pretense
of love for "labor," . promote class
divisions and excite class hatred. A
measure is favored limiti.ig the hours
of labor on railroads and all other
legislation which Congress is com
petent to enact looking to the general
adoption of the eighthour day in all
industries where it can be applied in
the United States. He brands as
foolish and useless all attempts of
labor agitators to interfere with the
hours of labcr on the isthmian canal
or prevent the employment there of
any class of alien labor. An invusti
gation is recommended into the con
ditions ot child and female labor in
the United States and drastic legis
lation for its control wherever Con
gress has power to regulate. He also
favors a law Dlacing liability for all
accidents in factories on employers,
whether due to their neirligence or
not. and the creation of a Federal
commission with authority to inves
tigate and report upon iabor dis
He states that he has temporarily
withdrawn from entry all remaining
public lands supposed to contain coal,
and asks Congress to make the with
drawal permanent and provide for
their administration and use substan
tially on the dan adopted for the
forest reserves. The opinion is ex
pressed that still more rigid regula
tion of the great corporations wil
ultimately be found necessary and
favors'a law permitting railroads to
pool under supervision of the Inter
state Commerce Commission and with
full publicity of conditions. A grad
uated Federal inheritance tax is re
commended and Congress is exhorted
to try and devise a graduated income
tax law which will pass the ordeal of
the Supreme Court. Some will un
derstand him to intimate that the
Supreme Court as now constituted
would probably try hard to find such
a law constitutional. Technical and
industrial schools for the District of
Columbia are asked for. A para
graph is given to agriculture and the
farmers with special recommenda
tion for the Appalachian and White
mountains, and a memorial amphit
heater In the Arlington National
Cemetery. The President believes
that a Constitutional amendment
should be proposed putting entire
control of marriage and divorce in
the hands of the Federal Govern
A ship subsidy bill of some kind is
urged provision for lines running ro
South America, if nothing better can
be obtained. . Currency legislation of
some kind calculated to impart efas
ticfty Is recommended, and also the
Secretary of the Treasury should be
allowed to deposit customs receipt:
in national banks. Free trade with
the Philippines is urged, or any ap
proach to It. Citizeuship is recom
mended for Porto Ricans and enrou
racement to Hawaii in its effort "to
secure immigration fit, la the end
to assume the burdend of full Amer
lean citizenship." The Presiden
thinks that the government of Alas
ka must be reorganized.
The President interpolates
lecture on "international morality
as preliminary to an attack on his
own countrymen of this city in tt.
Interest of Japanese coolies. He
calls their exclusion from our school
as a "wicked absurdity, and pro
poses to use, apparently 10 force
them back, "all the forces, ci.il and
military," which he may, "lawfully
so employ. The President Is evidently
very mad. He asks Congress to
pecifically provide for the naturali
zation of Japanese. We advise all
our people to read this paragraph or
the message in full.
Our occupation of Cuba is explain
ed with the statement that it willfnd
as snoii as a Cuban government is
lectert and installed. The Rio Jane-
o conference is referred to with the
internee t that our delegates weie
instructed to join in the request that
P ace Conference at The JLii'ue
Dsider the question of collecting, by
force, international debts founded on
contract. Secretary Roots South
American trip is described and the
President congratulates himself on
is success in promoting peace in
Central America. He urges the ra
tification of the treaty with Morocco
which resulted from the Algiciras
convention. The rapid destruction
of fur seals by pelagic sealing is des-
ribed as barbarity and the sugges
tion is made that, if effective regula
tion of seal huntintr cannot be obtain
ed by international agreement, we
had better ourselves exterminate the
pecies at the rookeries and put an
nd to the trouble. The coining se
conil Hague Conference is mentioned,
followed by a short essay on "Peace
and Righteousness," which concludes
with a plea for maintaining the Army
and Navy in a high state of efficiency,
nd so ends the message. S. V.
"Did you call at Roxley's house?"

A great deal of attention is being
given by the .United States Depart
ment ot Agriculture to the subject of
ry farming is semiarid regions.
The subject is treated at length both
n Secretary Wilson's annual report
and in the Year Book of the depart
ment; and now a farmers' bulletin
has come to hand from the depart
ment, entitled, "Management of Soils
to Conserve Moisture, with Special
Reference to Semiaria Conditions,"
the author being George H. Failyer,
the Bureau of Soils. Hawaiian
griculturists would do well to make
a special study of this newly exploit
ed branc) of farming science,, for it
may mean the, transformation of a
large amount of land area in these
islands from barrenness into produc
tive' fields, orchurds and gardens.
Probably the Hawaii Experiment
Station, if it receives the increased
support bespoken for it by Secretary
Wilson, will be able to advance the
investigation of the subject to some
practical solutions. Advertiser. '

A steamer was laboring in a heavy
sea, tho waves sometimes sweeping
er decks, but the officers had assur
ed the passengers that there was no
anger and all seemed reasonably
calm with the exception of one meek-
ppearing little man, who every few
moments would approach an officer
and anxiously inquire if- he thought
the ship would founder.
No, I tell you," one of them finally
xclaimed with impatience. "What
the matter with yod? Look at

scared to death."
"Oh, I'm not scared," the man re
plied, "but if the ship was going to
