Wo wish to particularly urgo

the difference between tho civili

tho men there In charge, even as
concerns matters so Important as
those, of lorms of government,
coastwise traffic, or Immigration.

PRESIDENT .DRYDEN'3 TE3IMONY.
Newark (N. J.) Advertiser
The testimony voluntarily tcUen to
tho Insuranco Investigating commltteo
in jew jorK by Senator Drydcn th s
week, ns president of tho Prudential'
i,iro insurance Company, made a fav
crablo contrast to that which was ex
torted from the presidents of tho New
York Insurance companies on the same,
itnnd. The only point brought out In
connection 'with the company's affairs
not a matter of common knowledge
was that of the company's campaign
contributions, which were limited to
three Presidential contests, and wcro
comparatively small In amount.
ino financial issuo beforo the coun
try and tho Involvement of tho Inter
(eta of hundreds ot thousands of policy-holders
offer a reason, not political
partisan, for these contributions. Thero
have been none made to State cam
paign funds, and thb testimony Is that
nono of tho funds of the company has
ever been demoted to lobby uses In tho
furty States In which the company
docs business. The company has nov-ti-
been Interested In any syndicate,
and no officers of tho company had
received commissions on Insurance.
The salaries of tho highest officers av
(rage about one-half tho amounts re'
eelved by the officials of tho New
lork Insurance companies, whllo the
nggregato or official salaries paid
bardly bear comparison.
Tho testimony given yesterday by
tho company's actuary was practically

Pope Abandons Plans
For Apostolic Delegation
Home, Dec. 9. All hopes havo now
been abandoned nt the Vatican of erect
lug the Apostolic Delegation at Wash
ington Into a regular Nunciature. Tho
plan was conceived by tho late I'opo,
.'ho hoped that the Washington Gov
ernment would, sooner or later, con
cent to rccognlzo the Papal envoy to
America as a member of the diplomat
ic corps in that country, ylth all tho
privileges Inherent In tho recognition.
This opinion of tho lato Popo was
strengthened by tho fact that the
Washington officials tent, to Rome, a
lew months beforo his death, Mr. Taft,
tho present American Secretary of
War, as It Is an Implied princlplo In
Vatican diplomacy that official recog
country by tho Pope carries with It tho
official acknowledgment that the
Pope's envoy to that country is an of
ficial accredited to the Government.
Steps wero taken In that time to
obtain from tho Washington officials
tho recognition of the Apostolic Dele
iato to tho United States as an envoy
Irom a European power, but all nego
tiations to that effect failed entirely.
It was represented to the late Popo
that America, being essentially a Prot
cntant country, could not number n re
lirlous representative among Us dlplo-
s atlc envoys.
Almost Immediately after Plus X
was elected Popo the same schemo
was proposed at tho Vatican, especial
I) by Cardinals Satolll and Martlnelll,
tho former Apostolic Delegates -to
America, who well knew the advan
tages tho Papal Envoy to the United
Etates would enjoy if once placed on
the samo footing as tho other foreign
representatives. President Itoosnvclt
sob sounded about the, matter several
tlmes by American prelates, among
Ihem'Mgr. Ireland, tho Archbishop of
St. Paul, tMlch. President Iloosevclt
expressed his personal Inability td
bring about tho proposed change, and
rnly recently the Vatican authorities
were officially Informed that the plan
was Impossible of execution.

king address on the Profession of
Teaching this afternoon nt tho Stato
Normal School. The assembly halt
was crowded with students and San
Jose teachers to hear him.
Dr. Wlnshlp, In speaking of tho fop
ward movement of civilization, char
acterized the genius of tho seventeenth
century as authoritative, that of tho
eighteenth as controlled by opinion,
end that ot the nineteenth ns controll
ed by organization. Ho argued that
I the ago of organization is on the wane;
and prophesied that the new century
Is to ho onn of standards,
, He told how in the recent state and
municipal campaigns traditional or
ganizations had given away before the
now movement of tho century.
I William Randolph Hearst, he said,
had won single-handed a moral vic
tory In New York, because ho had set
up a standard. He told how tho Hearst
newspapers had been hitherto shut put
of the fashionable clubs of New York:
how Hearst himself had been hated
r.cd despised by some of the men who
made his fight the strongest in the
November election, referring to tho
management of the Now York Herald
and the- Now York World. Tho
strength of the Hearst movement lay
In tho standard set up. It received a
majority in every rcspsctnblo precinct
In tho city, and was only beaten by
the combined operation of political
tlckcry and bribery In tho disreputable
quarters of thoelty.
I Dr. Wlnshlp sold that the new teach
er must look to tho higher standard;
and that tho teacher who would do
tho best by her charges must bo ready
to utilize tho best means the times af
ford. A teacher who clings to old
plans Is as blamablo as a surgeon who
persists In using the Burglcal Instru
ments of twenty years ago. The lat
ter ho characterized as a murderer.
Dr. Wlnshlp spoke eloquently for an
hour and a half and made a profound
Impression. He Is on this coast as tho
guest of tho California Teachers' Asso
ciation, which meets In Dcrkeley the
