The original Roosevelt third tp-m
man appears to hae reached terra
llrma unnoticed b means of the icar
Senator JelT Davis calls William
J. Bo an a "belted knight ' lie has
earned the title, too, on two different
ncciiHlons, and linn a line chance ol
helng belted once more next fall.
On the platform nt n Cooper Union
meeting In New York city with Mr.
Ilrjan were Mr. Gore, the blind
United States Senator from Okla
homa, and Senator Jeff Davis. The
trio made up a remarkable combina
tion. One mentnlly blind, unothcr
physical!) blind, and the third af
flicted with brainstorm.
While the letter of the Delegate,
reproduced In this Issue, recalls the
unsuccessful fight to have the I'cail
Harbor Item Included In the bill of
the Naval Committee, his message to
the Governor, stating that the bill
exempting passengers from the oper
ation of the coastwise shipping law
has been favorably reported, will
give considerable cheer to tho com
munity. One light Is on the high
road to success and the other has not
jet been lost; so Hawaii may be sat
isfied with the turn her affairs aro
taking In Wnshtngton. The passage
of tho bill whereby passengers to and
from Hawaii will be allowed to trav
el on foreign bottoms, will have the
practical effect of adding several lino
liners to the passenger fleet plying
between this port and the Coast, and
the prospects for nn enlarged tourist
trade will brighten accordingly.
Senator Tillman, who recently had
n conference with John D. Rockefel
ler, declares that "In un earlier age
of tho world John D. Rockefeller
probably would havo organized Ills
tribesmen Into a militant force nud
led them to the conquest of neighbor
ing tribes. I take It that Jlr Rocke
feller never would have been batls
tled eo long as there was a known
tribe which did not acknowledges his
rule. He teems to be one of the men
who come into the world's history
tery few centuries who are dominat
ed by a lust of power which must be
satisfied at all costs." In these days,
when the law la stronger than man,
even the one who would enslave his
I el low a through control of. tho neceJ
tarles of life realizes that his Held of
operations Is limited.
THE UNfTED STATES SENATE.
For tho first time In tho history of
this country, tho United Stntes Sen
ate consists of ninety-two members,
Forty-six Commonwealths nro ropre-
tentcd by two members each, and at
roll-call It has been currently noted
that they "aro nil present or account
ed for." The control of legislative
movements in tho upper chamber of
the Nnttonnl Legislature will not be
disturbed by the Increase In numbers
at the present session, as It Is part or
the unwritten law that new members
modestly rofrnln from making them
lelves conspicuous during tho eaily
dayH of their terms.

RATHER THAN REMAIN IDLE,
Army recruiting officers report n
remarkable Increase In tho number
of applicants for admission to the
sen Ice within tho past few week J.
This is the more remarkable, as In
the latest annual roporl of the Secre
tary of War, based presumably on tho
t-ttitc of affairs existing tluce months
ago, the matter of recruiting for tho
army was made tho subject of some
what anxious comment. Increased
pay, better accommodation, and the
offer of other privileges nnd advan
tages were suggested by the Secre
tary as necessary to render tho ser
vice more nttrnctlvo to destrablo re
cruits. Today young men nro offer
ing their services faster than tho re
cruiting officers can tnko care of
them. Twice ond threo tlmc3 us
many applicants nre received as here
tofore, nu.l the class of men nppbing
is mcj higher than nt any time
since tho Spanish Wnr. This Hood of
applications Is probably only n tem
po! ary phenomenon. Tho fact of the
matter doubtless Is that many young
men nre finding themselves nut of
emp!o)iuent just now, nnd whether
from cholco or necessity they nro
ready to take a term of service In tho
army rather than remain idle.
