A DAY 01- PERFECT UNION.
Nowhere is the union of the Blue and the Gray more perfectly
rcalizefd than in the Army and Navy, where the lianics of great leaders
on both sides arc represented by those of their descendants. Both
North and South supply the officers and men of the twin services.
Since the Southern States were readmitted to the Union they have kept
their quotas at West Point and Annapolis filled, and the names of
Lee and Longstreet are familiar in the army as arc the names of Grant
and blicrulan. Lately at Schohcld Barracks Lieutenant Phil Sheridan,
now at Washington, had a superior officer whose father, a general in
the Confederate Army, fell at Gettysburg; and the common patriotism
of these men is emblematic of that which prevails amonsr all our
military and naval officers. And as
security irom the memories drawn from both sides of the great civil
conflict. Both North and South now sec that the confidence of the
people in our national strength is the greater because both North and
South fought so long and gallantly. Had either failed of its duty the
fact would be a source of weakness now : and in facing the vicissitudes
of the future the whole nation is thankful that Grant and Lee, Sheridan
and Jackson, Sherman and Longstreet, Thomas and Johnston, the
Army of the Potomac and the Army of Northern Virginia, were all
i a ; r
, . On Memorial day there is no
but tnerc is no lack of common pride.
AMUNDSEN'S PROPOSED 'QUEST.
There is enough unexplored territory some 50,000 square miles
about the North Pole, to warrant a venture in that direction by Cap
tain Amundsen, the Norwegian discoverer of the South Pole. Geog
raphers, ethnologists and naturalists generally want to know all about
this terra incognita: and there are various people in Europe who still
call for confirmation of Peary's discovery. Interest in the waste places
of the arctic also extends to those who believe in the existence there
of great mineral deposits, while the discovery of a lost tribe in the
northern part of British Columbia, last year, has stimulated ethnol
ogical research. Another point which a wider area of discovery,
farthest north, might settle, is why
south from the polar solitudes arc so fat, a phenomenon which is noted
of the herring off the coast of Scotland, which are "spent" when they
go far north on their great migration and come back plump and well
flavored. Besides all this there arc vital points of Mormon theology
which are involved in a better knowledge of what is hidden in what
the Book of Mormon calls "the North Country."
A NATIONAL DEFENSIVE POLICY.
Whatever the Democratic desire may be to make a showing of
economy in the coming campaign, it will be of little advantage to the
party to make it at the expense of the army and navy. There seems
to be no public sentiment in favor of a cut in army strength or in the
' navy-building programme, and no small part of the favor given
Roosevelt is due to his approbation of a constructive policy for both.
Nobody feels the cost of two new ships a year or .i few extra regi
ments. A proposition for more ships, forts or troops, would carry
at the polls anywhere in the country. And we take no risk in prophesy
ing that no party except the Socialist will venture to declare against the
interests of either branch of the popular armed service in their national

The United States should build a

to a stated number of people. At present the army represents a ratio
of less than one in a thousand. If it represented two in a thousand it
would be none too large. And if we are ever called upon to defend
our coasts, including the insular ones and Alaska, to say nothing of
upholding the Monroe doctrine, we shall need to keep on building
more than the two a year which the Democratic House objects to. It
is of no use thinking that we can improvise vessels of war to meet

THE WAILING PLACE
By WALT MASON.
I look around on this world so gray, and size up its stock of
sorrow; there's nothing worth while in sight today, nor promise of
good tomorrow. I make a howl that would raise the dead, and weep
till the world is wetter, and all of the gallons of tears I shed don't seem
to make things much better. This life's an expensive thing, I sigh,
free rein to my anguish giving; and when man makes up his mind to
die, it costs a lot more than living. And brooding o'er mournful things
like these has made me a chronic weeper; but all the gallons of brine I
squeeze don't seem to make things much cheaper. I look around on
my busy friends who toil with their spades and axe-, and weep for
them ; when their labor ends their bundles will go for taxes. I moisten
well with my scalding brine the path of the smith and sower; but all
my stunts in the weeping line don't seem to make taxes lower. I stand
aghast when the sun's in sight, and groan when the rain is pouring, and
have bad dreams both by day and night, and spend all my time deplor
ing; I am chief grouch at the Wailing Place, the boss and the peerless
kicker ; and all the rivers that streak my face don't seem to make things
