WHAT AMERICA NEEDS IN
Richmond Pearson Hobson Is eith
er a proiihet or a fool In tho esteem
of a great number of people. 111b-
tory will probably record that he Is
no fool, and while his predictions aro
not likely to come true, one reason
for it will bo that he drew such a
dark picture of American future In
the Pacific as to create an ample sup
port for preventive measures.
At the Democratic Notional Con-
vcntlon, Hobson gave one of his so-
tailed Jingo speeches and was all but
booted from tho stage. Tho conven-
tlon refused to glvo him a single
cbeer. Tho assembled representa
tives of the Democracy were In no
mood to sanction a tcire-tnlk or give
offense to friendly nations by ap
pearing to bellevo what he said.
Tho ncwspapeis throughout tho
country, however, reported his words, prepared nnd our danger is closo at
Some praised him. Others praised hand. Japan has been making stu
the men who hooted him. Ho never- pendous preparations, naval, mill

duty to prepare for the maintenance

more far-fetched than the Indlffer- oat dirt." We must build ships nnd
ence nnd supreme confidence of the cnt dirt. When tho ships nro built
American people for tho last ton We can stop tho dirt diet, and not
years. until then."
One of Hobson's latest articles Is i
In "The World Today" for July, Conies of the B u 1 1 e t i n ' s Fleet
wherein ho deals with the "Defense Edition, wrapped ready for mailing,
of Our Outlying Possessions." Here, ean oe procured at this office for five
as In all his other articles, Hobson cents. Cost of mailing, three cents,
shows that tho weak point of Amer-, - ?- -
lea Is In tho Pacific: He believes In
proceeding on tho theory that our
country should be prepared to cope
with the strongest combination of
naval power possible to be thrown
into this ocean. In this he is right,
be the strong naval powers of the
present or future what they may. He
"We control about seventeen bil
lions of the world's banking capital,
nearly three times that of Great Brit
ain and Japan combined. We could
maintain supremacy upon both
oceans and our people would not bo
conscious of tho burden. Tho cost
ot the Navy that would thus insure
our peace would not be tho hun
dredth part ot tho cost ot tho war
that is Inevitable without It.
"In moving out to this, our natur
al and invincible position ot naval
supremacy, we should adopt a consec
utive and conservative, but a relent
less prbgram of naval expansion, car
rying forward simultaneously all tho
departments of efficiency, ships, men,
shipyards, naval bases, and coaling
stations. At the present juncture
such a program would require the au
thorization at each session ot Con
gress ot four new battleships and
two new armored cruisers of the larg
est size, auxiliary vessels, and all
other departments In proportion. We
should not hesitate at the expense of
these vessels, but should set the pace
with vessels four or five thousand
tons larger than any other In the
world. The more expensive the pace
becomes, tho sooner tho other Powers
must drop to the rear and accede to
us our rightful position ot leadership
In the race.
"In laying the foundation for na
val supremacy wo must remember
that a merchant marine is necessary
for -supplying needed auxiliary ves
selsand the seafaring habit to men
required for naval expansion in time
of war. The question of becoming
independent ot our competition and
our probable enemies for tho trans
portation ot our great over-ocean
commerce Is ot urgent Importance,
and. to this end we must revise our
navigation laws, encourage ocean
shipping and, if necessary, have
our Government own and operate a
few over-ocean steamship lines from
Atlantic, Gulf, and Pacific ports. '

fense of our Insular possessions, we I

"The condition of our preparedness
must uttlile our dlnlomacy and na
tlonal attitude. While wo are mov-
lng forward on our march toward
naval supremacy, particularly during
the period of lncomplctlon of the
Panama Canal, for which period the
Anglo-Japanese treaty holds, wo
must expect Japan to try to preclpl-

votes which vlgllanco would gain.
Hitchcock will leave tomorrow for
Colorado Springs, where ho will meet
the leaders ot the Republican party
nnd State Committeemen of Califor
nia, Oregon, Washington, and other
States west of the Missouri. Ho real
izes that llryan will mako a great
effort to snatch thoso States from the
Republican column, and while it is
believed generally that ho will fall,
Hitchcock Is for taking no chances.
He will counsel making tho cam
paign a vigorous one.
Later he will go to Chicago, nnd
there ho will meet State Committee
men and prominent party men from
the States lying between the Mis
souri and tho Alleghanles. Not an
effort will be spared to win votes In
Utah, Colorado, Kansas, and Okla

tucky, and Michigan.
New York, July 4. Khartoom, an
African elephant at tho Bronx zoolog
ical gardens, had his first taste of par
lor matches yesterday.
Visltois wcro feeding Khartoom and
his charming, If somowhat bulky, wlfo,
Sultana, peanuts. A joung man of
fered Sultana a handful of mntches.
Sultana, as crafty a joting lady as
over camo out of tho African Jungle,
bniffered .it the proffered handful ami
turned away. Khartoom reached out
his long trunk, scooped In all tho
matches, tossed them into his capac
ious mouth and crunched them.
In n moment there was a splutter
ing, a flash and then a wild trumpeting
as Khartoom began to spout burning
matches. In trying to get tho matches
out tho elephant tossed his head so
that somo went down his throat. They
gavo him a stomachache and Khar
toom walled moro vociferously than
ever. His cries were taken up by Sul
tana and by Ounda, the Indian ele-,
phant in the next inclosuro. Then all
uiu inner ummuiB wiuiui earsnui mai
could mako any nolsa added to tho
din. For ten minutes tho zoo rang
with wild echoes.
Tho burning matches that dropped
from Khnrtoom's mouth set fire to tho
Ltraw at his feet and Keepers Thuman
and Bcyruther had to pour half a
dozen buckets ot water on tho bjaze.
Dr. W. Rold Blair, tho zoo animal doc
tor, peered down tho elephant's mouth,
discovered It was not badly btinicd
and decided that Khartoom was suf
fering principally from fright and
"Barring Tils stomachache," re
marked the doctor, "he isn't harmed
much, but wo would like to catch the
perpetrator of the outrage."

The Last Suit
Stein Bloch Make
fits as accurately as the model upon which that suit was
based. This is important to you.
Good friends have pointed out that when Stein-Bloch
advertise that they have been tailoring 53 years they are
not saying anything that should lead a man fo buy Stein
Bloch Smart Clothes. These good friends forget that
Stein'-Bloch advertise "53 Years of KNOWING HOW."
The "Knowing How" is what makes the last suit fit as
well as the first. It is what makes this suit fit you, no
matter whether you live in New York, or Oregon, or Hawaii
One tailor doesn't make the suit or overcoat. It is the
united product of a body of tailors, each of whom holds
his place because he is the best man at that task. When
each one has finished his special work and tho results are
assembled, the suit or overcoat fits because the men who
made the parts knew what they were doing.
This is modern, economical tailoring.
