supervision in au outerprisc which t.alls
together large numbers of people.
St. I-ouis lias already learned one les
son from the incompleteness of the Paris
exposition when the time apiointoil for
opening the gates arrived. The lesson
is au eatly statt in the pieparations
and a thorough planning of tile work.
The exhibitors at any big fair tend to
use the List moment of time available,
(ireat energy on the patt of the exposi
tion authorities is- needed to urge the
exhibitors to promptness .and to dissuade,
them Horn undertaking greater projects
than can be brought to completion.
The second lesson which Paris has
taught the Louisiana I'urchnse is in the
accident of last Sunday. In the. election
Vf a city of buildings like those of a big
evposition. which aie intended to last
only a few months, the tendency is to

why certain supplies were billet! to Ihe
city at prices far above the prices
charged to private buyers. The proviug
or disproving of these charges should be
easy. The reeonLs are teilainly ipeti

It will not fail !o strike the people of
SI. Louis that the Mayor is singularly
obtuse in his bundling of the February

ttdoptetl a line ol action calculated to
preveut any possible revelation of the

This is the wrong way to investigate.

THE GKEAT ADMIKAL.
In the welcome whidi the city and
people of Chicago extended to Admiral
Dewey there Is proof of the faithful
esteem and la-ting gratitude fell by the
patriotic West for the immortal Amer
ican who fought and won the glorious
battle of -Manila Bav.
There is no development in the polit
ical life of this country which can af
lect Admiral Dewej's bold upou the
hearts of his countrymen. It is as the
Ureal Admiral that he is iou-d by ail
Americans. One cannot think or him
without recalling the iiiemoiy of that
splendid tkty when the news of the an
nihilation of Moutojo's bVel Hashed
across ihe seas to a wailing ami appie
heusive people, it told of the lirst shock
of encounter between Spain and the
United States, of the lines! s,.a i,ght oft

which n.ade every American Iieatt swell
From that d.i.v Dewev's pkue in hi
turj was taken. Uroin that day it was
cci tain that his name could never fall
on American ears without causing a ie
spoiisive thnll iu American bosoms. In
the national Valhalla be stands side by
side with Paul Jones, with Perry, with
Decatur, with Farnigitt ami Porter a
glorious group of Western Vikings who
have made their touutrj-'s name re

siiauge that Aiuernaiis gather with en
thusiasm to see the weather-taiineil lace,
the white hair and mustache, the calm
and plucky eyes of the luiiti who stood
on the olympia's bridge on the morn

was to live iu song and slory as one of
the epic sea Il.lt ties of the ages.

of gaining a most imuonaul naval nost

if the Oeiman t.'ov eminent is in icalily

This activity is due. of course, to the
fact that the Motitoe Doctrine may not
now legitimately be invoked as forbid
ding Europeau aettilsitinti of terrltory

States Covernment may lescnt by force

but Its one-time unanswerable claim of
right under the Monroe Doctiiue has
been voluntarily surrendered, it was
.surrendcted when the McKinloj- im
perialists announced to the world that
they proiK.scd to establish an American
colony iu the Eastern Hemisphere b.v
whipping tlif Filipinos and taking their
count i y away from them.
It is just as well to face these plain
facts. It imperialism is lo prevail as an
American doctrine the Monroe Doctrine
must lie put asitle. We must meet
Europe with armed hands now if we
forbid her interference in the Western
Hemisphere and jet insist upon our
right to establish wlouits iu the. East-
