MATTERS FINANCIAL ,
Henry Clows, in his weekly Kinanel-tl Kevie w, Oct.
2S, Rives nonif reasons for the unsatisfactory imimy out
look as shown iu the continued firmness of foreign ex
change and the orohahle export of n"'d. The rea-uns an1:
hirst, the tendency of our Internal ionnl Undo liainnre
continues unfavoralilc. In Septi mle r our iiupoits show
ed an increase of nearly $ 1 S.iimi.ii'i'i, while our exports
showed a gain of less than 2.iiimi,immi. i his i:reat increase
in Imports was the natural se jueiice of our renin rkalde
Industrial activity, the hulk of the pain heing in raw
maler'als or those only partially manufactured, intended
to satisfy the unusual demands of consumers. Our
exports are large, but their niowth Is not sufficient to
offset the expansion In the imports, especially as the
high prices of commodities p lie rally tend to discourage
the outward movement. This is especial y true of cot
ton, the backward movement of which has not yet been
offset by the free outward movement of grain.
Another important factor in the exchange market Is
the fact that our banks ftiil have on deposit a large
amount of Japanese funds subject to call at any time.
Still another element in the situation Is the weak
ness of the Dank of England and the Bank of Germany
in fac of the heavy prospective Russian loan. The bulk
of this Issue will, of course, be placed In Europe, France
being in a particularly favorable condition to make sub
scriptions. The amount of the loan is estimated at -'5',-000,0(10.
and it is expected that fully one-half of this will
be raised in France, which Is not only favorably disposed
to Russian investments, but has a large accumulation of
Idle capital awaiting employment.
Mr. Clews concludes: "Our general business situa
tion continues promising. The chief danger ahead Is that
of excessive speculation: high prices and prospects of
continued activity arising from the great prosperity ot
the interior being exceedingly -powetful stimu'nnts. It
will requlro all the foresight ami self-denial which our
bankers and business men can exercise to prevent the
country from running Into a career of reckless specula
tion. A speculative debauch wouid promptly check pres
ent prosperity, and the self-interest of all parties calls
for conservative action and much self-restraint. The
outlook is brilliant and satisfying, and over-anxiety to
anticipate Its advantages will not only bring present pros
perity to an early end, but precipitate un unnecessary
the: sweat boh
"Detectives will not allow Cunliffe. who robbed the
Adams Express company of $100,000 to sleep or rest until
be discloses the hiding place of the missing cash." News
It Is not so stated but it is altogether likely that
Cunliffe was subjected not only to loss of sleep and rest
but also to brutal treatment by detectives who sometimes
do r ot .hesitate to commit a crime In order to disclose
one, or to make an innocent prisoner appear guilty. The
instrument used is called the sweatbox. It is a relic of
cruel ages, un-American and unlawful. It belongs to the
time of the Inquisition and has no proper place in mod
ern methods of crime, detection. The old common law
plainly says that no man shall be forced to incriminate
himself. And all statute law is of the same purport. The
sweatbox Is for the purpose of making a man incriminate
Even a criminal has some rights which officers are
bound to respect. No officer should be permitted to force
a plea of guilty from unwilling lips by threats or cruelty.
The few facts that leak out from the sweatbox concern
ing the methods employed by policemen and rletctlves
make one's blood boil. To say nothing of putting strong
men to the torture, frail women and children have been
forced to pronounce themselves guilty 1 becaus of 1 bar
barous treatment. Many of the persons who are arrested
on suspicion and put upon In the sweatiTox do not know
their rights In the premises. If they did there would be
some sensational trials of officials, '
The Inquisitorial procedure Is a sixteenth century
method. It is ot native to this country. It has been im
ported. It conies from China, where criminal law is the
most arbitrary and cruel thing in the world. The arrest
and punishment of some of the sweatbox officials would
put a check on the unholy practice.
It Is rumored that the call of the territorial republi
can central committee to meet In Santa Fe on Friday
of next week, Is for consideration of a proposal that the
committee publish an official protest against the passage
by congress of a joint statehood bill. t
The Citizen finds It difflculi to believe that such
rumor is founded on fact, for the following reasons:
Joint statehood is not a political question in New Mexico,
all pa-rties having some for and some against It. Hence,
it is a question altogether outside of the jurisdiction ot
the republican central committee as such. It is hardly
to be supposed that the committee, acting in their capac
ity as the governing body of the New Mexico republican
party, would be so unwise as to place the party in direct
conflict with what is well known to be a national party
measure. The enemies of joint statehood, at this late
day, would materially weaken their cause by such acticTh,
inasmuch as it would be an open and unmistakable ad
mission that they are afraid to permit the question's
subinissinon on its merits to the voters o'f the territory,
after their long insistence that the people of New Mex
ico are overwhelmingly opposed to Jointure.
However, If such is the purpose, the public will know
it In a few days. Nevertheless, it may not be amiss to
warn the movers in this matter, provided always that
buch is their purpose, that there is no other way in which
they can so largely and permanently injure the repub
lican party in New Mexico.
There Is rejoicing not only in Russia, today, hut
throughout the civilized world, at ihe czar's promise to
grant that country, without further bloodshed, a consti
tutional government, lint it musi not be forgotten that
such a government has not yet been organized, that the
promise was wrested from the czar ly force of condi
tions he was not prepared to resist, that even m the
promise he styled himself the autocrat by the grace ot
(od, that he will have abundant time ami oppurt'uiut y
tit whittle his promise down to almost nothing, thai even
W'ilte himself is none too progressive in the matter el
popular government, that the privll. ged cla-s hold
nearly all the wealth of the country and are opposed to
the people ruling, tbit this wealth can always command
the seri'ce of 4 brutal and blood-i hii,t y Cossacks, that
the iiio.-t powerful and the most intolleraut priesthood
on the face of the earth, oppose popular government
and thai this bigoted priesthood has absolute sway over
mind and soul-nf the most numerous, stolid, ignorant,
supers; it ions and non progi essive peasantry the world
ever saw. The Citizen rejoices over any improvement
in the g.iverniiu ntal conditions of Russia, but It fears
that for a long time it will be a case of small favors
Concerning the proposal to pm the life insurance
companies under federal supervision, a suggestion from
the Ohio Policy Holders association reaches the heart
of the matter. The association urges that In taking over
the supervision from the states the government should
het a limit upon the "loading" of premiums. This means
in life insurance parlance, adding to the ascertained cost
of carrying insurance a certain amount to pay the ex
penses of the company's managemrnt. The rates are
simple. The cost of carry.ng a policy at a given age Is
derived from Mat is'ical tables. The amount that should
be added for legitimate expi n.-es is easily ascertained.
Regulations of this kind would put a limit upon salaries,
induce economy and prevent largo accumulations of sur
pluses, the manipulation of which has given rise to so
much scandal. The cost of administration of American
companies Is tw ice that of the European, ay the experts.

IGNORANCE OF LITERATURE
BV AMERICAN COLLEGE GIRLS
San Frincisco Chronicle
Some discouraging statements regarding American
college girls' Ignorance of literature are contributed by
.leanette Marks to the October Critic. As the writer re
marks, what other people read determines their reading,
and "they will take their Shakespeare only disguised and
diverted in the gorgeous dress of the spectacular by Mar
lowe, Sothern and Henry Irving; they will take their
Dante not at all I know two co.lege girls who In their
senior ear asked who Dante was; and 'if need be they
will u?e their Homer in translation as a reference book."
in her experimenting at Mount Holyoke College the writer
obtained some astonishing results. On matter which was
required for the entrance examination these were par
ticularly noticeable for example, a year and a half after
the examination. "Out of 180. fifty-three could not te.l
when Shakespeare lived, although either the sixteenth
ar seventeenth century would have been accepted as cor
rect. Two students placed him In the tweltth century,
four in the fourteenth, seven in the fifteenth, twenty In
the eighteenth, and four in the nineteenth century. Six
teen students did not attempt to assign him at all."
The test In general reading, such as the students
might have been expected to obtain at home, were eqaully
lisastrous. "One hundred and tilty-four did not know
who wrote 'Don Quixote'; one student, hard pressed,
made Marion Crawford the author. Sixty had never
heard of Thanatopsls,' and thiH striking name was spell
ed In every fashion, from 'Annatopsls' to ' Thanatophia.'
H'orty-flve could not tell who wrote the 'Divine Comedy.'
Forty did not knew who Henry Esmond was, one contus
ing him with 'Q. Cleveland'; by inference I suppose she
meant Ford's 'Peter Stirling." Fifty-nine bad not heard
(?) of Maggie Tulliver; 111 were unable to place Dickens
in his century; they began with the seventeenth century
and with a gradual crescendo closed with fifty-two as
signments to the eighteenth century. Tiity-elght were
unfamiliar with Hawthorne'B century. ' One' hundred and
forty-one did not know who wrote the 'Ode on the Inti
mations of Immortality.' One-hundred and thirteen had
never heard of Burne-Jones, and 129 were unfamiliar
with Wilifam Morris. These last two questions among
others were given to teRt general Information more or
less intimately connected with literature. Of spelling 1
will not speak. Itv was essentially modern."

SOME STORIES WISE
AND SOME OTHERWISE
Calculating Little One.
A West Philadelphia grocer relates that, some tew
days ago a little girl entered his store, and laying down
a dime, asked for ten cents' worth of candy.
"Its for papa." she exclaimed. "I want lo 'spise him
when he conies home."
The grocer displayed several kinds, but none seemed
to strike the fancy of his young customer, who finally
"Give me caramo.s; I just love caramels. "
"Hut I thought you wanted them for papa," said the
"1 know," assented the little girl, "but when 1 give
them to papa he'll just kiss me and say 'cause I'm such
a generous little girl he'll give them all back to me, so
you'd better give me caramels."

Ilisliojl Ames tells a story of a slave master in Mis
souri in the olden time of negro vassalage, who said to
"Ponipey, I hear you are a great preacher."
"Yes, massa, de Lord do help nie powerful some
times." "Well, Poinpey, don't you think the negroes steal
little things on the plantation?"
"I'se mighty 'frajd they do, massa."
"Then, Poinpey, I want you to preach a sermon to
the negroes about stealing. "
After a brief reflection, Pompey replied:
"You see, massil, dat wouldn't never do, 'cause
'twould trow such a col'ness over de meeting."
