New Building for the Bureau of

Formal Opening Is a Brilliant Affair

palace erected as a home tor the In

Republics was dedicated Tuesday with
elaborate ceremony in which the rep

the building, took the chief part
The erection of the building was
made possible by Andrew Carnegte,
who gave 1750,000 of the million which
it and its site have coat, and the
ironmaster was one of the chief
guests and speakers at the dedi
cation ceremony. President Taft
delivered a fine address, and speeches
were made by Senor de la Barra,
the Mexican ambassador; Secre
tary of State Knox and John Barrett,
director of the bureau, who was in
charge of the ceremonies. Prayers
were delivered by Cardinal Gibbons

Nearly everybody in Waahine-rnn
wanted to attend the dedication cere

evening in honor of President and Mrs.
Taft and Mr. and Mrs. Carnegie. In
vitations were sent to members of the
diplomatic corps and to official and
resident society, and the reception
proved to be one of the most brilliant
affairs of the season. The Marine band

outside the building was illuminated
with electric designs of the South

elaborate refreshments were served.
The affair was a great credit to Di
rector Barrett and to Francisco J.
Yanes, the able secretary of the bu
reau. These gentlemen and their fel
low workers in the bureau have given
a vast amount of time and labor to the
task of perparing for the event of
Tuesday and it was indeed their red

the two years' work on the new build

Growth of the Bureau.
As most people are aware, the In
stitution known as the International
Bureau of the American Republics, or
the Pan-American bureau, as It is usu
ally called, is a sort of common bead
quarters and clearing houae for in
formation, maintained Jointly by all
the American nations from the great
lakes to Cape Horn. It was the out
growth of the first Pan-American con
ference, which was held In Washing
ton in 1889, and it is maintained by a
common fund to which all of the Inde
pendent nations of the three Americas
"chip In" in proportion to their popu
lation. Inasmuch as the United 8tates
by this plan pays more than half of
the expenses of the bureau, its head
quarters have from the outset been lo
cated in Washington.
Some years ago when the rented
quarters of the bureau In Washington
became manifestly Inadequate for its
expanded activities, a project was set
afoot to erect a permanent home for
it. It was to cost $125,000, and the
different republics were to contribute
in proportion to population as they
do for the annual expenses of the in
stitution. Several of the South Amer
ican countries proceeded on this basis,
and there was something like $50,000
on hand when the congress ot the
United States declared for a more pre
tentious building and appropriated
$200,000 instead of merely its share ot
the $125,000. Soon after Andrew Car
negie came forward and offered to do
nate the whole sum needed for a build
ing and a much finer building than
had previously been thought of. H
had previously donated millions of dol
lars for the famous "peace palace" at
The Hague, and it was his idea to
have the new edifice in Washington oc
cupy the same relations to the cause
of international peace on this conti
nent that The Hague palace does te
the cause of international arbitration
throughout the world.
Buauties of the Marble Building.
With three-quarters of a million dol
lars provided by Mr. Carnegie for
building, the Pan-American bureau
was enabled to devote S250.000 on
hand to the purchase of a site, and a
most admirable tract of several acres
was secured in an Ideal location south
of the White House and overlooking
the Potomac river. Here a surpass
ingly beautiful marble palace has been

provision of a "patio" or Inner court,
such as constitutes the most distinc

policy In the case of this building has
been to provide a structure more sug
gestive of a palatial residence than a
public office structure.
The -patio," or picturesque court
yard, is protected from the sun
by an overhanging roof and cooled
by the waters falling from a
beautiful marble fountain. On all

The Democrats in congress say that
it makes little difference whether Mr.
Taft wants harmony in Indiana or not,
for harmony there Is impossible, not

In the Republican party which can be
depended upon either to stay away
from the polls or to go to them to
vote the Democratic ticket at the
election next November.
There are several representatives
of the old-line regular Indiana Re
publicans now in Washington, men
who went out of office when the Dem
ocrats succeeded in electing all but
two of the members of the lower
house of congress from the state.
These visiting Indlanana say that the
Democratic claims that the men of
their tariff habit of mind will stay
away from the polls are not true, and
that for the good of the administra
tion, if not for any overweening love
for tariff revision, they will vote next
November for Republican candidates

One can hear in Washington dla
metrically opposed stories about the
situation in Indiana each being told
with all the evidence that the relator
is sincere in the belief that he is
speaking the truth. It takes nothing
more than these entirely opposed sto

diana in reality is a doubtful state
at the present time. There are some
Republicans who think that because
Senator Beveridge voted against tariff
revision, many Democrats will sup
port the candidacy of Republicans for
membership in the legislature, men
who will vote for the retention of the
senior Indiana senator in the upper
house of congress.
Democrats Have High Hopes.
The Democrats say on the other
hand that there will be po division of
their ranks and that with the help
they get from dissatisfied Republicans
they will have no difficulty at all next
November in making the Hoosier
state practically solid in Its Democ
It is curious what great mischief
one little won? can create. Nearly all
the newspapers in the United States
in printing the Republican platform,
adopted at the Indiana state conven
tion, printed the word "genuine" be
fore the word "progressive" in the
platform's statement of indorsement
of the Taft administration. In the
platform as it was adopted the word
genuine did not appear, but it did ap
pear in the first draft, the one appar
ently which was given to the newspa
per men to send out to the country.
The platform as it appeared in the
newspapers set forth that the conven'
tion indorsed President Taft in every
endeavor for "genuine progressive"
policies. This made it appear to men
who know the subtleties of language
that the convention intended to inti
mate that some of Mr. Taft's meas
ures were not "genuinely" progres
sive. The president read the platform
in the newspapers and as he under
stands the use of words thoroughly,
he concluded, with perhaps thousands
of others, that the word genuine was
put in in a captious and ironical
President Is Satisfied.
Later when the president found put
that the platform did not contain the
word and that his policies had been
indorsed heartily without any chance
of misunderstanding, he forgot his
first displeasure and it is said told his
friends that he was entirely satisfied
Since Mr. Taft has reached the mood
of satisfaction over the convention
platform as It related to his adminis
tration, he has become outspoken in
his desire for harmony in the Hoosier

Shakespeare's Greatest Play.
It is impossible to say which of
Shakespeare's plays is the "greatest"
It is safe to say that the greatest of
his productions are "The Tempest,"
"Julius Cansar," "Hamlet," "Lear,"
"Macbeth" und "Othello," but to pitch
upon any one of these six, or of the
others, as being the greatest would be
a bit of unpardonable temerity. It is
a question of individual taste and
judgment Some claim that "Hamlet"
bears the palm, others are found to be
in favor of giving that high honor to
"Macbeth," while each one of hia 15
or 20 greater plays seems the "great
est" to some people. Perhaps the
most talked ot. if not the most popu
lar, of the Shakespearean dramas is
''Hamlet;" while the majority of the
profounder Shakespearean critics
unite in pronouncing "The Tempest"
to be the high-water mark of the great
dramatist's wonderful genius.

governor of the state, Judson Harmon,
might make some errors of omission
or commission that would strengthen
the Republican cause, Mr. Harmon
has been going ahead doing things
apparently which the people of the
state cannot complain about
There are many members of the
present dominant party who come
from districts that are exceedingly
close politically, and these members
are disturbed over the seeming indif
ference of some of their Republican
colleagues as to the result of the next
congressional election. The members
whose districts are close say that
lukewarmness on the part of their Re
publican colleagues certainly will have
its effect, and that the party. Instead
of being indifferent if not dispirited,
ought to show its old wartime front
and go into the fight as though there
could be nothing ahead but victory.
Selfishness, it would seem, may
have something to do with the feeling
on the part of some of the Republicans
that it will make no great amount ot
difference whether the Democrats con
trol the next house or not The party
members who look with careless eye
upon the vision of Democratic vic
tory are in the main men who come
from districts where the Republican
majority is overwhelming and where
n' Democrat, even in a year of revolt
has any real hope of election. So it is
that these Republican members ap
pear to their colleagues who have to
fight for their election, to be extreme
ly selfish in the view that they take
of the matter.
From Republican Viewpoint
When the careless-minded Repub
l'cans are asked why they seem to
think it will make no material dif
ference if the Democrats control the
next house their answer is that things
seem tending toward Democratic suc
cess, and that it will be a great deal
better to have the success come to
the minority next fall than to have
it come In 1912, when a president Is
elected. Further, they say that if the
Democrats come into power In the
house they surely will pass legislation
which the country will look at with
much concern. In other words, the
Republicans who do not care particu
larly whether or not the next house
is controlled by their party, say that
the Democrats when in power can be
depended upon to commit blunders
enough to make it certain that In two
years the people will be glad enough
to return a Republican house.
The Democrats have heard the Re
publicans' explanation of their reason
for not fearing that the present mi
nority party can remain in power for
more than one congress. The leaders
of the Democratic party say that If
the Republicans expect their Demo
cratic brethren, when in control of the
house, to make blunders enough to
bring defeat to them at the next elec
tion, the enemy is counting on some
thing which Is not going to happen.
If the Democrats carry the elections
next November and come Into power
In the house after March 4 next the
belief is general that they will at once
take up the tariff and will pass a low
tariff bill for the sheer purpose of
sending it over to the senate to be
killed. The Democrats would like
nothing better than to put the respon
sibility of defeating a low tariff meas
ure on the shoulders of the Republican
The minority party members seem
to believe that If this Is done and the
people know that the Republican sen
ate has killed the downward revision
measure the election of a Democratic
president and another Democratlo
house is a foregone conclusion.
Some of the Progressive Republi
cans in the house, and many
of those who never markedly
have been advocates of progression,
are worried because of the seeming
disinclination on the part of the Re
publican leaders to push any of the
Taft legislation at this session except
that which has to do with interstate
The Democrats Just now are looking

Mr. Fosa carried the Fourteenth dis
trict running as a Democrat, by a

he would be certain of election, and
that the prestige of his name would

A Grain Prcdu::r
NEVER SAW SUCH FINE WHEAT
Gust Anderson of Maidstone, Bask,
was formerly ot Minnesota and has
been in Central Canada three years.
On January IS, 1110, he writes:
"Arriving fifteen miles from Maid
stone, I bought a couple of steers from
a rancher, as my capital was not
large, and with the two oxen I brought
with me, I broke 25 acres which I put
in crop in 1908 and bad to clear some
brush. I earned 45.00 by breaking
fifteen acres for a neighbor and dur
ing the summer I put up hay and
hauled timber and put up houses for
other settlers. Notwithstanding a
heavy frost on August 12th, I bad 22
bushels of wheat per acre and 60
bushels of oats. Off 35 acres of wheat
in 1909, I got 27 bushels of wheat
per acre and 1,300 bushels of oats off
20 acres. I never saw such fine wheat
anywhere. We have plenty of rain
between May and August and after
August seldom any but dry warm
days. Water can be bad at from 20
to 40 feet and plenty of grass for cat
tle." The evidence of Mr. Anderson is
given because it is encouraging to the
man of small means who is desirous
of bettering his condition. It shows
what can be done, and there is really
but small limit to the man with push
and energy to become wealthy on
Canadian lands. And the grain that
he raises is good. A press dispatch
The quality of the wheat continues
to be the feature of the deliveries. In
the total of 3,378 cars in the February
inspections there were 2,847 of high
grade stuff, a percentage of 84.28. For
January the percentage was 82.21, and
for the six months it was 88.6. This
is an unusually high average, and it
demonstrates beyond the shadow of a
doubt that the farmers in thin part
of the Dominion Btlll know bow to
grow first-class wheat The crop of
1908 was considered good enough, and
Its average of contract wheat was
only 70 per cent. Good weather
throughout the season was an impor
tant factor, of course, in insuring the
high quality of the grain, and it is not
likely that atmospheric influences of
30 favorable a character will be en
countered for a long time to come.
The best that can be expected is that
a fair average for a term of years
will be maintained.
"Young man," inquired her father,
sternly, "will you give her a home like
the one she has been used to?"
"No," replied the truthful suitor,
'for there will be no grumpy father to
:ome home and make everyone mis
srable by his kicking over trifles and
swearing at matters in general. There
will be no mother to scold her from
morning to night for wasting time
merely because she wants to be neat.
There will be no big brother to abuse
tier for not doing bait of his work, ana
ao little brother to make enough noise
to drive her crazy when her head
aches. There won't be any younger

novel while she does all the work.
