MONEY FOR IRRIGATION.
Following the lead of President nfoosMe
velt's message talk, government irriga- t
tion enthusiasts are springing up all
over the East. It Is a matter of gratit- o
cation to Western people to see that 0
none ask that the project be launched t
in the experimental stage. It is generally o
admitted the president knew what he s
was talking about when he spoke fir r
national irrigation and the wor: should
be undertaken In no half-hearted way.
The press of the East is giving aid to
the scheme so vital to Western interests
with gratifying enthusiasm. It is Iiing
urged quite generally that the sum ap
propriated to reclaim arid lands he
as liheral as the condition of the coun
try's finances will admit. The Chicago
Tribune hits the itril on the had with J
telling force when It puts the matter he:

The reading public Is Indebted to the
Indlanapolis Sentinel for some curious
and interesting information. In this age
of speculation when long chances are
taken it is of more than ordinary im
portance to be informned concerning the 5
likelihood of hitting or missing the good I
things of life and the Sentinel has
figured the whole thing out. According
to the statistician of the Sentinel the
chances are 30,000,000 to one that a boy
baby arriving in the world during the
coming year will never be president. f
This ratio is discouraging to say the º
least. It is almost as much of an uphill a
undertaking to overcome it, in fact, as t
to offset the baneful influence of 1t to 1.
The Sentinel further alleges that the
chances against the boy becomllng it
United States senator are 410,000 to one,
and iti the game of .politics the percentage t
against his winning a seat in congress Is
103,330 to one. The child has one chance
in 820,000 of sitting in a governor's chair.
On the threshold of the new year these
percentages are of more than ordinary
Interest. They possess a charmn and
fascination which does not ordinarily at- t
tech to calculations of this sort. The
chances for political advancement in the
light of the above figures seem few and
far between. Nevertheless it is i cool
forting reflection that were the road to I
Came twice as rocky as the Sentinel's (al
Culator makes it out and the chances
only one In a million the coming boy will
face the future with grit and ability and
take the solitary chance. And if he fails
to reach the loftiest elevation he will in
1ll likelihood reach a height where he
can see what the top looks like and con
clude that after all he doesn't want it.

It is reported Ihtl the ltnlted States,
governmentt will reelieve C'hina of p ly
ment of $18,000,000 out of the $25,0,00'
Indemnity allotted to this country. The
Itotll Indemnity was levied by agreement
of all the powers Interested, inomllltll
to satisfy clainms of fo))elgners for out4
rages and to pay the' e'xpellees of thj
military occupation., it wn notoriously
excessive and was, for the most part, a
sheer nil act of robbery as the lootlnd

sion in the East, which has learned to
expect nothing but brutal greed from
what are called civilized nations. It
confirmed the good feeling of the Jap
anese for the United States, and ce
mented a friendship that began with the
first opening of Japan to Western trade
by an American fleet.
It can be imagined that the remission
of nearly three-fourths of our share of
the Indemnity exacted from China would
make an Impression still more profound.
We have been the constant friend of
China, seeking nothing for ourselves but
opportunities to trade and striving to
prcserve her political independence and
native instilutions. We have discour
aged European aggression and frowned
Supon private outrage. During the occu
pation our troops refrained from loot
and massacre, and during the negotia
tion our representatives resisted money
exaction and assault on political Integ
r!ty. With (reat Britain and Japan we
saved the independence of China.
All this will be revived and perma
nently Impressed upon the Chinese mind
by the extraordinary act of remitting
so much of the indemnity as constitutes
exemplary damages. The act will be
such a startling exposition and rebuke
of the greed of the continental powers
that it might be mitigated by the other
nations friendly to China, if they could
afford to be just. Unfortunately both
(reat Blritain and Japan are in almost
as great need of money as the conti
arntal powers. Probably we shall have
the good fortune to stand alone in our
title to the gratitude of China and the
good opinion of civilization. It will be

PROGRESS OF THE YEAR
[Henry C(ews' Letter.]
Our exports of manufactures show a
falling off due to the operations In cop
per, lower prices for oil and the more
pressing demand at home for Iron prod
ucts. The clearing house returns of the
United States for 11 months of the year
showed a total of $108,724,000,000 compared
with $77,123,000,000 for the same time last
year, an increase of about 40 per cent.
'T/hI most extraordinary feature of our
home Industry has of course been the
demand for Iron and Its products. We
are produclng pig iron at the rate of over
15 to 16 million tons a year, or nearly
double the product of 1896. Our output
of coal will be about 53,000,000Ttons. We
have already surpassed Great Britain In
morchalidso exports, in pig Iron output
and in coal production.
For this great and continued activity
in iron the chief explanation Is the de
mand from railroads for cars, engines,
rails, etc. To secure the highest etflliency
at lowest cost the railroad systems of the
country are being practically recon
structed. The big modern freight car
which carries most economically de
ma~nds heavier rails, stronger bridges
and larger engines. New and better ter
minals are also essential; as wllness the
contemplated expenditure of $40,000,000 by
the Pennsylvania for an entrance to New
York city. Still another large outlet for
iron is the modern method of construct
ing high buildings, which promises to
continue until the business secticals of
our large cities are practically rebuilt.
Plenty of examples could be cited
showing that the United States is far in
the lead In the race of industrial
progress. Our future, too, is bright, and
success will be aided or retarded very
much In poportion to the intelligence of
our legislation. Commerce is the hand
