Butter Farmer: Since road making was
first commenced in this county prob
ably a quarter of a million dollars have
been expended from year to year in
building and repairing our highways.
If that sum had been applied In the
way of permanent road building, Sut
ter County would now have solid stone
or macadamized roads for all the
principal thoroughfares. By the pres
ent patchwork system another century
could go by and leave the county with
the same roads as It now has with the
annual expenditure of $10,000, or there
Oakland Enquirer: President Hadley
Of Yale is lending his influence to a
movement for the suppression of pto
fanity upon the amateur athletic field.
Because it is wicked? Ostensibly not
so, but because, being the expression
of Irritation, it conduces to "improper
co-ordination of movements" and "in
terferes with physical and mental har
mony." Also, it "alters the respira
tion and heart beats." In other words,
a ground of scientific objection to pro
fanity has been found, and when the
runners, high Jumpers and football
players learn that their muscular
power will be partially burned out by
the use of swear words, they will blas
pheme no more, and upon the athletio
field at least their yea will be yea and
their nay will be nay.
TROUBLE FOR LURIDS.
Oakland* Tribune: Atkinson and some
of his lurid anti-expansion disciples arc
evidently about to run across serious
trouble as- a result of their seditious
•work. - The report from Manila that
the capture of the rebel archives has
resulted in placing the Government In
possession of correspondence of a
sonable nature is ominous for some
body, anid the Administration wUI un
doubtedly not let the matter drop out
of sight. The penalty for high treason
is death, and if the rumors be true, At
kinson is liable to come dangerously
close to earning that fate.
BOERS AND ENGLISH.
Tulare Register: Once in awhile some
newspaper writer, who writes first and
thinks afterward, declares that the
Boer war is likely to prove the down
fall of the British empire. There could
not be ranker nonsense. That there will
be stubborn fighting cannot be doubted,
and that the result will be some sort
of a patched up compromise that will
leave both parties about as they were
before the fight began, minus the dead
and destruction of property, is likely,
but there will be no destruction of the
British empire or relegation of Great
Britain to the rank of a second-class
Power. The Dutch and the English
have fought before, and at one time it
looked as though the power of the
Dutch would be supreme on the sea,
but tenacious as the Dutch people are
they are not more dogged than the
British, in whom there is little of faint
heartedness and a great deal of tenacity
and power. It will be a stubborn con
flict, but the outcome cannot be a mat
ter of doubt. South Africa will, in its
genius and administration, be English
and not Dutch.
OUR MENACED INTERESTS.
San Jose Mercury: The interests of
California at Washington are in a bad
way. The several pending reciprocity
treaties —with Jamaica. France and Ar-
gentine—menace a wide range of our
special industries; and there seems no
body among our official representatives
able to make a protest loud enough to
be heard. Mr. Kasson, who negotiated
the Jamaica treaty, admits frankly that
he has no knowledge of California af
fairs; and then, upon the basis of con
fessed ignorance, undertakes to assure
us that no harm will come to us from
the admission of West Indian fruits at a
reduced tariff rate. Similar ignorance
and disregard of California interestsare
manifest in the other pending treaties.
Under their provisions France is to send
wines to this country on a reduced
tariff basis and Argentina Is to have a
cheaper rate on wool. Thus, three of
our leading industries are threatened
by arrangements made undsr the tariff
laws; and not a voice is raised to pie
vent the injury and injustice. Even
the President, who, as a student cf
tariff affairs, ought to understand our
position and protect us, speaks In bland
and gracious generalizations which,
when analyzed, come to this, namely,
that we must be good children and take
IS IT PROPHECY?
Santa Rosa Press-Democrat: The
forty-sixth star will soon be pinned to
the nation's emblem and the State it
will represent is Oklahoma. In a re
cent statement Governor Barnes an
nounces that the Territory now has a
population of 375.000. In 1890 the pop
ulation as shown by the census reports
was 60.000,. While the enormous in
crease has* been the occasion of some
comment it Is easily understood when
existing conditions are taken Into con
sideration. Formal application for ad
mission to Statehood will soon be made,
and while the Territory's political com
plexion may prevent the recognition of
her claims by the present Congress that

THE PACIFIC POWER.
Treka Journal: Hon. John Barrett,
late United States Minister to Siam,
said, in a lecture on "The Philippines
and the Far East," delivered under the
auspices of the National Geographic
Society: "If I were asked to state the
necessary immediate influences that
will assist in making America forever
the paramount power of the Pacific, I
would enumerate in order of import
ance: First, permanent sovereignty
over the Philippines; second, construc
tion of the Trans-Isthmian Canal;
third, preservation according to the
treaty of our trade rights throughout

cable; fifth, upbuilding or reasonable
subsidizing of our merchant marine;
sixth, a new but Important proposition,

seventh, the early sending of a commis

How Edison Tested Vibration.
Mr. Edison has always believed in
harnessing and utilizing the power of
vibration. Not long ago a newspaper
man stopped Edison on Broadway and
told him he had just been to interview
the late Mr. Keely, of Keely motor
fame, and when the newspaper man
told Edison that Keely's fundamental
idea was really to utilize vibration the
inventor was all attention at once, re
lates the "Ladies' Home Journal."
"There is something in that," he said.
"Why, I have a tuning fork out at
Menlo Park with which I could tear
down the whole shop. There is some
thing In it." Then, taking from his
head his well worn silk hat and stand
ing bareheaded, he said: "Put your
hand on the top of this hat and feel
the pulse of the traffic of the town—
that is vibration." And, sure enough,
the top of the hat beat and throbbed
just as the pulse of a human being.
"All of that wasted power," he added,
"ought in some way to be utilized, and
some day it will, I think."

IN AN ENGINE CAB.
LIVES OF PASSENGERS IN THE
Crucial Seconds When the Man at
the Throttle is Severely
To the engineer belongs the most
hazardous and at the same time the
most responsible task of any of the
men who run the train, and the pas
sengers on one of the great flyers as
they 101 l back in their seats reading
the most recent work of fiction or gaz
ing placidly forth at the scenery,
scarcely ever give a thought to the
fact that ahead of them is a dust and
oil begrimed man who, for the time be
ing, literally carries their lives in the
hollow of his sweaty hand, and to
whose watchful and alert eyes and un
flinching nerve they may owe their es
cape from a horrible death.
But so it is, and this man, the en
gineer, usually of humble origin and
meager education, is a man for all
that, and one of force, and with the
power and will to do and to die in the
pursuit of his duty should the occasion
ever occur. It is extraordinary how
few cases there are where engineers
have been found derelict in the moment
of trial. There have been innumerable
wrecks since railroads were first In
troduced into the country, but the rec
ord of the number of engineers who
have failed when the crucial test came
is infinitesimal. Tt should be remem
bered that there is no way in which
the courage of an engineer can be test
ed, and only by actual participation in
a wreck can he receive his baptism of
When once danger appears in front
an engineer's duty is, first, to close the
throttle; second, to apply the air
brakes; third, to reverse the engine—
that is, to throw the reversing lever,
which enables the engine to run In the
opposite direction from which it had
been going; fourth, to reopen the throt
To do these four acts calls for but a
fraction of time, but where wrecks re
sult the danger is usually so imminent
as frequently not to leave even suffi
cient interval to accomplish them, and
often when the ruins have been cleared
away the body of the faithful guardian
has been, discovered with his hand stiff
in death on the throttle, reverse lever,
or brake, and bearing silent witness
as to how far he had got toward the
accomplishment of that duty which he
had yielded his life to perform.
Many engineers are reckless, and will
take awful chances. At one time a
certain driver was taking through a
special train consisting of empty
freight cars and a caboose. The sta
tion master told him that the down
train was a. trifle late, and due at the
next station beyond, seven miles away,
at 2.37 o'clock. Glancing at his watch
the engineer said he had nine minutes,
and decided to take the chance. He had
to cross a bridge just beyond the town
he was leaving, and midway across he
began to increase his speed.
CAME TOGETHER HEAD ON.
As the engine struck- ground again
on the other side, and they headed
straight up the river's valley, he
threw her wide open, and gave her
every ounce of steam there was in the
boiler. Three miles further on, when
running to the limr. of his capacity, he
struck the down train head on. Both
engineers and firemen were killed out
right, and the engines reduced to a
condition that rendered them fit only
for the scrap heaps.
Strange to say, no passengers or
other members of either train crew
were killed outright, or afterward died
as the result of injuries received. Only
the shoulders and head of the fireman
of the special were ever found. He
had been driven into the door of the
firebox feet first, but stuck at the
shoulders. The white hot fire within |
had completely incinerated the rest of ;
his body. To look at the door of a
fire box such a casualty as that seems
all but impossible, the opening looks so 1
small. In reality, however, it is large i
enough, as any railroad man can tell j
The watch of the engineer of the spe
cial when found was still running, and
was four minutes behind. It was to
this error of his timepiece that the trag
ic death of himself and his three com
panions was due.
In daylight It is the habit of the en
gineer to follow with the eye the
glistening track of rails over which he
must travel. Should a rail be mis
placed it would break this line of light
and betray itself to the watchful man
in time to stop and save his train. This
particular wreck, however, resulted
from the curse and dread of all rail
road runners — the washout. The cul
vert which caused It was a short on?,
Its width being hardly greater than the
combined length of engine and tender.
The masonry had been carried away,
but, the fishplates and spikes holding
firm, the rails still crossed the gully.
This held the rail line of light true, and
in consequence the engineer was well
up to the danger before he realized it.
He was able to stop the train, but to
do so had to go into the ditch himself,
although, fortunately, he did not lose

a thing was It that when the train came
to a full stop the front wheels of the

washout. No one was injured save the
engineer, who escaped with a couple
of broken ribs and a dislocated shoul
der. He completely recovered, however,
and Is one of the most trusted en
gineers on that particular line to-day.
A FIREMAN'S AERIAL FEAT.
A rather amusing thing occurred in
connection with this wreck. There was
little coal in the tender, what was left
being in tbe rear end, and the fireman
had gone back to shovel it forward.
The impetus of the engine caused it to
jump clear across the gully and stick
its nose in the opposite bank. The rear
part, being the heavier, dropped first,
carrying the forward part of the ten
der with it, causing tender and engine
to shut up like a jackknife. The fire
man was tossed clear over the engins,
and alighted uninjured on ,the track
beyond the "washout. He was a lanky,
six-foot Irishman, with carroty hair,
and the brogue still strong upon h.m.
In telling of his experience afterward
"Sure, It was a quare expayrance
there was. l one minit stopped wid me
shovel over the coal hape, and the next
minit there was I and me shovel and
the coal all flying troo de air, and each
trying to see who would get there fiist.
Glory be that I was not hurt at all, at
all. It's a brave man is Moike (the
engineer), fine, big, brave man, sor. The
last thing he said was . What do
you think it was, sor, and him expect
ing to die the next minit, at that, sor?
Without turning his head he yelled out
to me: 'Jump, you red-headed scoun
drel!' he yells, and while I didn't hava
no toime to do as he tould me, I take
it very kindly that he thought of me
as he did." j . ,
The tears stood in the honest fellow's
eyes as he told the story. "Scoundrel!"
was not the word the engineer used;
he spoke with far more vigor.
An engineer is supposed, winter and
summer, to lean constantly out of the
cab window and maintain vigilant
watch on the track. Sometimes this is
impossible, and again unwise, as in the
case of storms, where no good can pos
sibly result, and the faculties of the en
gineer might become benumbed
through exposure. But as a general
rule he is expected to do and does this,
especially when running In daylight.
A certain wreck occurred on a biting
December day. The thermometer reg
istered more than 20 degrees below zero
and hoar frost, completely covering the
forward windows of the cab, had ef
fectually cut off any view of the rails
through them. It has always been sup
posed since that on account of the cold
ness of the day the engineer had taken
a chance, and was not watching from
the side cab window. This he denied.
FORTY MILES AN HOUR.
He was running the through North
ern express, which had a limited time
schedule. A sidetrack at the foot of a
heavy two-mile grade ran to a . steam
sawmill, and on this span lay a train
of a dozen or fifteen cars. The first
two or three cars were loaded with
compressed hay in bales. When the
express reached the foot of the grade
it was running at a high rate of speed,
probably forty tcv. forty-five miles an
hour. The switch lay wide open, and
into the siding the express crashed
without any abatement of its head
long speed, and struck the other train.
Such was the force of the impact that
the forward cars were literally rent in
twain and the broken bales of hay
scattered on either side of the track.
A fierce fire soon started.
The fireman, two mail cierks, and a
brakeman lost their lives, but no pas
sengers, save one ; woman, who died
later from injuries received. Scarcely
any one, however, escaped unscatched.
j Of the three mail clerks one was killed
outright; the two others were both
caught in the broken car. One they
dug out and got free, with the excep
tion of one foot, but, try a:< they would,
this foot they c<ruldn't loosen.
Twice had the' Clerk's clothes caught
fire, and he was almost beside himself
with fear. He begged them to cut his
foot off with one of the axes whi<* had
been brought from the adjacent saw
mill. Twice the brakeman raised the
ax to do as he was urged, and twice d d
his heart fail him. Then, handing the
ax to a bystander, he bent and ran his
hands down the'mail clerk's leg until
they touched what seemed a red-hot
Iron bar. Regardless of blistered fln
j gers, he grasped it with both hands

afterward that had his effort failed he
should have tried to chop off the mail
clerk's foot, but that he didn't think he
would have had time. Had that failed
he intended shooting him, as he was
armed with a revolver.
The other mail clerk was inextricably
caught. They had only dug him out to
the waist line when the onrushing fire
drove them back. The clerk cried pite
• ously and begged them to kill him, but
.they had no arms. He was soon be

at him with an ax, only to be pulled

procurable—and it attacks churches
even in preference to private houses.
The dominant desire is not loot. There
is no loot to be obtained by hacking
pictures of the Virgin, breaking 'ip

cloths to ribbons, and a genuine French
mob seeks those indulgences sooner
