Reverse for the Kaiser's Diplomacy In Morocco.
CONTRARY to expectation, the tenor of advices from European
chancelleries appears to indicate that Germany will recede from
the position taken in Morocco, says the San Francisco Call. If
this forecast is fulfilled the affair must be regarded as a distinct
and unexpected reverse for German diplomacy. The sudden
dispatch of German warships and their occupations of the
harbor of Agadir on the west coast of Africa had all the
appearance of a definite ultimatum, and if Germany recedes from
that, position it will inevitably be said that the retirement was due to
the British threat of intervention on the side of France.
Perhaps it should be said that the kaiser's diplomacy is irritating
and headstrong. The steps he has taken in Morocco were started
without notice or any steps to feel his way, either at home or abroad.
They appear to supply evidence that he still regards himself as absolute
monarch by divine right, with full power to invite war without con
sulting his own people. It begins to be made clear that the German
people, or a majority of them, are not hungry for new warlike ad
ventures. The kaiser must reckon with the strong party among his own peo
ple, classed under the general and perhaps misleading name of social
ists, who appear to occupy the position held by the liberals of progres
sives of other countries. These elements everywhere all over the world
want peace among the nations, and they realize that war is a game for
kings and for those who sit in the seats of the mighty, while the burdens
and the losses, the sufferings and the misery are the lot of the people.
It may be laid down as a fact that there never was a war by which
both parties did not suffer severely, and the world is coming to recog
nize this fact and is at length disposed to act on the obvious conclusion.
There seems to be a great difference of opinion regarding the most
desirable location for a steamer landing on the lee side of the island.
The great majority favor Maalaea Bay, while both Kihei and Mc
Gregors have their adherents. Each landing has its benefits and draw
backs. It seems that Maalaea Bay is the only place which would pos
sibly be likely to suit all parties. . Here crops up the argument that
the appropriation is not available for Maalaea. Many favor Kihei in pre
ference to McGregors, and it seems that with Maalaea Bay out of it,
that Kihei could be made the most convenient to all points of the isl
and. Another drawback to McGregors is the impossibility of ever get
ting a wharf where steamers could come alongside. As at present this
landing is not only inconvenient, but positively dangerous. There has
been a committee of the Chamber of Commerce appointed to make re
commendations to the wharf commissioners, and it will be interesting
to note just what they will recommend, or if they will dodge the issue

The luna homeward wends his weary way,
(That is he does if all his work is done.)
"Now fades the glimmering landscape from our sight,"
We sadly say goodbye and watch it go,
Because how bitter, bitter dark the night
Will be when it is gone full well we know. '
The old lamp-lighter with his ladder goes
From lamp to lamp, on duty bent, once more;
And now from each a smoking incense flows,
But still the world's in darkness as before.
Like fireflies in the gloaming are their beams,
Or distant stars that ever dimmer glow;
A Christian land is ours and yet it seems
We still must walk in darkness here below.
Yet there is hope for even such as we,
Benighted once of earth that blindly grope
The welcome dawn of electricity
Is just at hand, so brothers, let us hope!

John W. Gates Was the Host Dar
kg Speculator of Ills Time.
With the deatli of John W. Gates,
better known ns "Bet You a Mil
lion" Gates, passes one of the most
interesting figures, one of the most
daring speculators, one of the most
remarkable characters that ever. a p-
peared in Wall Street. Like so
many of the 'multimillionaires of
America, Gates began life on a farm.
He was born at Turner Junction,
now a part of West Chicairo. in
1855. After graduating from the
little college at Nnperville in 1S73
he became part owner of a small
hardware store and grain warehouse,
and the following year married Miss
Delora II. B. Baker of St. Charles,
111. It was during this stage of his
career that he met Colonel Ike Ell-
wood, which marked one of the
most important .epochs in his life.
He hired out to Ell wood and start
ed through Texas selling barbed
wire. He made a great bucccss of
this work, but soon saw that the
possibilities of the business were in
the manufacturing line rather than
in the selling end, and before long
started the firm of j. W. Gates &
Co. in St. Louis. The original in
vestment was $20,000. The eight
partners at the end of two years di
vided 1175,000, and then Gates
bought all out but one, his friend
About that time some friend offer
ed Gates a tract of land in Chicago
Seeing another chance, he bought
the property, put up another mill
and, with one that he already had
in Pittsburg, planned to consolidate.
In 1883 he lost one of the plants by
fire. . With the courage fur which
he was famous above all his busi
ness contemporaries, he was un
daunted by this and proposed to
William Edenborn, one of his for
mer partners and later a successful
competitor, that they

found himself handicapped for lack
of ready cash. Calling on J. P.
Morgan', he secured a hail of$ 300,-
000, which loan later led to the for
mation of the steel trust. The in
ner story of this deal was revealed
only recently at Washington before
the investigating committee of the
house. Gates admitted on the wit
ness stand how Carnegie had been
forced to abandon plans for extend
ing his steel business, but who later
received $320,000,000 in securities
of the corporation for the interests
he had formerly offered for $1(J0,
The beginning of Gates' really big
deals was in 1892. In one year he
consolidated . the Iowa barbed wire
company of Allentown, the Brad
dock company of Braddoek, Pa.;
the Southern .wire company, of St.
Louis, the Baker wire company of
Lockport, 111., and the Lambert, &
Bishop wire company of Juliet, 111.,
into the Consolidated steel and wire
company, having a paid up capital
of $4,000,000. Meanwhile he was
secretly buying into the Illinois steel
company. In 1898 he organized
the Federal steel company and took
over the Illinois steel, the Minne
sota iron company and the Lorain
