OFFICIAL PAPER OF GRANITE CO.
and the City of Philipsburg.
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1901.
SENATOR HOAR AND ANARCHY.
SENATOR IIOAR'S proposed
solution of the anarchiis prol,
lem would be hardly worth consider
ation but for the fact that it was
brought up on the floor of the Sen
ate by one of the most influential
members of the uppller ho-use.
The senator frtom laa-ach usetts,
during the cornse of some remarks
on anarchy, ldeclared that the
best form of punishment, in his
1ludgeme't, woulld ie to deport all
followerc; of aiiarchyv to an island
set apart for that ,it ,pose. All the
civilizedl natons of the world could
co-operate in the work, and the
island could thus be made a vast
dumping grotund for the anarchistic
spawn of Europe and America.
Not less radical plans have beeni
offered by others not less prominent
than Senator lloar, but such a plan
is not in line with the thought of
the day, besides being so impractic
able from the mere standpoint of
operation that it cannot be consider
ed. It is recognized that anarchy is
a disease of the body politic and
that society must go to work to cure
itself. The subject cannot be ap
proached off-hand and permanently
solved by depolrtion or increasing
the secret service, or by any such
means. The seat of the disease
must be reached before a permanent
cure can be effected. This can only
be done through the law. Provid
ing punishment for the actual crimes
of anarchy is a matter of easy per
formance, but curing the disease of
anarchy is evidently another matter.
It is probable that the cure will be
effected in time, through evolution,
if not by a quicker process, but it
will not come through any suggest
ion such as that made by Senator
WVith the American farmer rais
ing his own beat sugar, and turning
his watertmelons into whisky, there
will not be any xexcuse for going to
town after anything but the lemons.
NEW YEARS CALLS.
IE are told that the old custom of
, making New Year's calls ia
goinig out of fashion among the bon
ton and too-utterly-too society of
certain towns. As it was practiced
in ancient tinies thlis is s perhaps well.
When the custom was to serve spirt
us fruiuenti and other drinks at each
receiving place it had a discouraging
effect on the humanii system we
would suppose. After a man has
called at say twenty-live different
houses and inserted about "three fin
gers" at each place we would sup
pose that his ideas of things in gen
eral would be more or less vague
and shadowy; but here in Philips
burg this objection to the custom
does not exist. No man will get in
toxicated on account of New Years
calls in Philipsburg. It is a trifle
straining on the tank of capacity of
average individual to drink ten or
twelve cups of coffee within the
space of three hours but lie is not
intoxicated. On the whole we think
the custom is all right and a good
Affairs are warming up in Wash
ington, but Senator Wellington
still has to carry a hot potato in each
hand to keep from being frostbitten.
A wise amendment to Senator
Htoar's bill to colonize the anarchists
on an island would be to provide
two islands-one for the males and
another for the females.
THE TREATY RATIFIED.
T IE Senate ratified the isthmian
canal treaty last week by a
large majority and thus the way has
been opened for direct proceedings
toward the construction of a great
highway connecting the Atlantic
and the Pacific.
But the ratification of the treaty
does more than this. It removes
the only stumbling block between
the United States and Great Britain
in their diplomatic relations by ab
rogating the old Clayton-Bulwer
treaty. There was no serious dan
ger of a disagreement between the
two countries on occount of the can
al project, but nevertheless it must
be a soulrce of satisfaction on both
sides of the water that this matter
has been disposed ot in so amicable
and pleasant a way.
The United States will construct
and control the canal, but Great
Britain will get all the benefit out
of the highway that it could derive
were it a partner in its construction
except its use in time of war against
the United States. There is no dan
ger of such a war and there probably
never will be any. The canal will
be simply a commercial highway in
respect to the relations between the
United States and Great Britain,
and in that particular it will be as
valuable to one as to the other.
It is probable that congress will
soon pass a bill authorizing work to
be begun on the Nicaragua project
unless the holders of the Panama
concession couclude to reduce their
price sufficiently to make it the pre
ferable route. This will probably
be determined in the near future.
It will take the greater part of
ten years to build a canal through
Nicaragua, for work of that kind
usually requires more than the es
timated time. But the outlook is
that the first decade of the twentieth
century will see the enterpise com
pleted and the highway between the
two great oceans established. It
will be a great achievement and a
credit to the enterprise of the
The distinguished senators who
opposed the canal treaty should en

Congressional Record for explanat
LORD ROSEBERY'S SPEECH.
LORD ROSEBERY'S remarkable
speech at Chesterfield, in which
he urged the closing of the war by
granting the fullest possible rights
to the Boers, would probably have
resulted in the speaker being hissed
from the stage had it been delivered
a few months ago. But the temper
of the British public has evidently
undergone a tremendous change, as
shown by the fact that there is only
commendation for Lord Rosebery's
There is no question that the popu
lar policy in England to-day is that
which favors peace at any price save
honor. Lord Rosebery has point
ed out how a policy of extermination
will prove more costly and probably
less effective than giving the Boers
amnesty with the fullest civil rights,
while at the same time the British
nation will gain much by trimming
its sails in European capitals and
overcominig the bad results of Mr
Chamberlain's arrogance aud tact
It is a question, of course, if the
Boers themselves would subscribe
to Lord Rosebery's policy. The
burghers are stubborn in holding
out for independence, and the pro
babilities are that they would refuse
to accept annexation, no matter what
advantages were proffered. Lord
Rosebery's sane words or council,
however, show that he is England's
coming man. His bold, clear-cut
speech has let a flood of light upon
the situation, and it shonld open the
way for general solution ot the
many problems which have been
vexing Britain of late and which
the flounderings of Mr. Chamber
lain have only intensified.
An optimist is a man who can
look happy despite the fact that he
has been inveigled into buying an
overcoat with a yoke in the back.
MARCONI the Italian electrician
and scientist, has achieyed a
wonderful result in transmitting by
wireless telegraph signals across the
It is true that this was accomplish
ed at just about the narrowest part
of the great ocean and that only a
simple signal was sent and received;
but what was done with a mere sig
nal may later be done with lengthy
communications. From Newfound
laud by means of a short cable and
land lines, to say nothing of wireless
telegraphy itself, messages may be
sent into all parts of North America
to which the existing telegraph sys
The beginning of the twentieth
century sees approach to perfection
of a means of telegraphing which
was discovered in the latter part of
the nineteenth. The day can not be
far distant when what is now crude,
defective and uncertain will be de
veloped into practial use. Whether
the Marconi system or some other
will utimately be adopted is uncer
tain. The Marconi method requires
the use of tall poles, kites or other
means of elevating part of the apar
atus to a great height above the sur
face. It is said that in England a
system has been tested whicn is
much simpler. all the instruments
being near the surface.
In some way, however, wireless
telegraphy will almost certainly
come into practical use, and it will
require so little capital compared
with what is now expended for tele
graph wires and poles, that will in
evitably reduce the cost of telegrap
hing far below what it is to-day. It
is possible, however, that in long
distance telephoning it and all
other kinds of telegraphing will find
a formidable rival. Recent improve
ments promise to make it as easy to
talk between New York and San
Francisco as it is now between
houses but a few blocks removed
from each other in the same city.
SIGNS OF DISCONTENT.
Boars Said to Be Tiring of Life in the
New York, Dec. 17.-The correspond
ent of The Times at Pretoria says the
recent British successes occur oppor
tunely at a moment when the Boers
are showing signs of discontent with
the life on commando, but the British
instead of congratulating themselves,
ought to put forth further efforts on a
Another dispatch from the same cor
respondent says that of the 800 Boers
collected north of Bethel under Gener
al Piet Vilijoen, only two commandos
of a hundred men each remain in the
neighborhood. The rest, including Vil
joen, have gone to the northeast, to
ward the Delagoa railway line.
"There seems," says the correspond
ent, "no reason to doubt that Acting
President Schalk-Burger and the 'Boer
government officials,' have crossed the
line north. After addressing a large
meeting near Carolina, at which he
t'ld the burghers that they must be
steadfast, as foreign intervention was
certain before long, Schalk-Burger
seems to have decided that the coun

was more- attractive than the high
veldt, where the British columns are
hustling the Boers incessently. He
probably is now in the neighborhood
of Pilgrim's Rest, where some 400
Boers have settled for the summer.
"VilJoen is the leading spirit in East
ern Transvajal. After General Botha
had been busy encouraging the Boers
with tales of the withdrawal of British
troops and of Boer successes in Cape
Colony, his (VilJoen's) defeat by Gen
eral Bruce-Hamilton should materially
increase the discontent which is very
rife among the Boers in these districts.
WANT CHICAGO LAND.
Claimants Seek to Gain Valuable Real
Chicago, Dec. 17.-A claim has been
made to practically all lake shore prop
erty lying east of the United States
survey line of 1821. This time every
thing is included between the Indiana
and Wisconsin state lines, covering
property held by the Illinois Central
railroad, the Illinoids Steel company and
other big 'corporations, representing a
value of millions of dollars.
Claimants' to. the north shore tracts
are said to be Dr. Jacob Nine, E. H.
Pickering and M. P. Benson. Those
alleging title to the south shore tract
are said to be B. D. Ma'rks and S. M.
Biddison, both of Chicago. The north
siders assert that their title rests on
Revolutionary scrip, secured many
years ago, while the south siders place
their faith in some other scrip, ob
tained by reclamation.
GOVERNOR GREGORY DEAD.

Wickford., R. I., Dec. 17.-William
Gregory, governor of Rhode Island,
died at his 'home 'here of acute Brights
