Where Wc Win.
A London letter to the Now York
Siinrfgardlng Mr. Chamberlain's Blue
Book states definitely thnt English
goods 1111 being displaced by those of
foreign manufacture In the colonial
markets. Thu reasons nsslgned nro
vailed and Interesting. As regards
the trade In American tools nnd cer
tain other articles the following ex
planation is given:
"American tools nre conspicuous for
their finish; the English are not. It
is generally admltUd that the foreign
er iiorsesses greater enterprise than
Ills British rival. The former takes
trouble to llnd out what is wanted,
but the latter makes what he chooses,
and if bis colonial customers reject it,
takes no further pains. The English
inanufacturerers will insist on lcnnv
ing so much better than their custom
ers what they require or what they
ought to require.
"Tills works out In all kinds of ways:
Some time ago English manufact'ir'er
urs monopolized the trade of miners'
picks. But they sent in a clumsy ar
ticle, fur too heavy for the miners to
wield. The Americans sent In a short,
neat, easily handled pick, which nt
once drove the British tool out of the
market. The English lost the trade
of Victoria in tacks by falling to pack
them in cardboard boxes Instead ot
paper packages. In the same way
they were cut out In the market for
cartridges. The Victorian, for some
reason, good or bad, prefers to got his
catrldges In packets of twenty-flve.
This may show fchockingly bad taste on
his part, but there It Is, and the obvi
ous thing to the lay mind would be
that while rityini; his preference wo
should humor him by letting him have
l.ls twenty-five package. Not a bl'. of
It. The Ilri-UI; plan is to have a luinl
rcd cartridges in a packet, and if the
Victorian does not like the plan, well
he ought to. Tho Britisher urguss:
"What can It matter, so long ns I glvo
him a good cartridge?" In the mean
time tlvj level-headed American manu
facturer steps In, gives the co'ontat
what he wants, and takes the trade.
In very many cases the shape of Brit
ish articles Is unsuitable to Victoria.
The r.ammer, for Instance, is not in
t'10 opinion of Victorian carpenters,
nearly so well shaped as the American
hammcr,"i.nit the British pattern seems
unalterable." As tho Newfoundland
report phrases It, "the English move
along In tho old rut." Tho Britisher
probably thinks he can get other cus
toiurs, but this Is unsatisfactory when
competition begins to outstrip the
growth of the markets of the world.
According to the report from Trinidad!
the Canadians ure as bad as the Eng
lish In their Indifference to customers'
But here comes In the point which
Is a source or encouragement to Ameri
cans. From the returns shown In the
Blue Book It appears that the main
advantages of our manufacturers lies
In that they are the greatest adver
tisers in the world. They know when
they make a good thing and see to It
that everybody else is informed of the
fact. Their catalogues are often fine
specimens of art and their press and
magazine advertisements are such as
to selt the goods on sight. As an In
stance In examining the catalogues of
bicycles It was seen that the United
States sent out much the best. Ger
many came next. England was worst
of all. Advertising pays.
Modern Creek tragedy Is only a piti
When Health Is Appreciated.
An exchange upitly remarks that
well persons seldom nppreclato the
blessings of health, and that It is only
during the prevalence of yellow fever
or cholera scares or other epidemics,
actual or threatened, that the priceless
boon of health Is rightly valued- by
those who passes It. It Is the most
priceless blessing In the'world, and yet
the least appreciated,. Epidemics ceem
necessary from time to time to cause
a more fitting appreciation of It, and
to spur people on to more considerate
care In tho preservation of It. In a
New Orleans dispatch It Is explained
that sixty people have been found hud
dled In one rather small tenement
house, and that, with one family goats
sleep tho same ns the regular mem
bers of the household. In a time such
ns that which marks a threatened
epidemic of the yellow fever people
nro guarded enough with respect to
their health. They forsake all other
things to preserve It and Heo to other
parts of tho country In the pursuance
of that aim. In the quarantine regu
lations the shotgun appears when
necessary Instend ot the helping hand.
If health h -so prccfous why Is It not
considered worth while to taker greater
care to preserve It when no such epi
demics nro threatened? It la better
than all the wefctth of the Klondike or
of any other region, nnd It cannot be
too often nor too directly pulntitd out
to those who possess It that they
should consider It n priceless legacy
nnd guard It accordingly.
The beautiful symbolism nt Ilosh
Hashnna, whether or not fully, ob
served by the modern Hebrew, might
with profit bo more frequently Imi
tated by other churches In that It Is
the occasion for reconciliation nnd for
giveness among the believers of the
fnlth. Once a year Is not often enough
to honestly lay aside the memory of
feuds and tho bitterness of resentment
because of Injury, but It Is better to
nllow the splrk of forgiveness to enter
the heart once a year than never.
Another Fad dots a Blow.
It Is a very difficult thing to follow
a course of treatment according to the
Ideas of many physicians of the same
school. Now that the sanatorium fad
has taken firm hold of most people of
culture, Dr. Whltcnmb, of Liberty, N.
Y writing to the Medical Record, on
consumption, declares that n sana
torium Is not only useless for consump
tion In the early stages of that dis
ease, but diminish their chances of life
by a large percentage. Ho asserts that
the all-pervading and ever-present de
pressing effects of Instltutlonallsm on
the mind ennnot but be detrimental to
bodily nutrition, and that In no dis
ease does the condition of mind have
such a powerful effect for good or evil
as In phthisis. Too much doctor, nurse
nnd treatment, too much surveillance
tend to produce a morbid self-con-Fclousness
and sensitiveness to .slight
symptoms altogether disastrous to
healthy, bodily functions. In habit of
thought and disposition the patient
soon becomes like the typical "rounder"
of the city hospitals. She studies her
symptoms and treatment and discusses
them with disgusting familiarity, In
season and out.
He also says that the constant nnd
exclusive association with the sick In
this dampening social atmosphere more
than neutralizes all Its obvious advant
ages, All exercise Is apt to be half
hearted, perfunctory nnd void of In
terest, thereby losing much of Its value.
The outdoor life prescribed soon be
comes nothing more than sitting
wrapped In furs on a veranda.
Dr. AVhltcomb advocates active out
door exercise with a definite object.
Those who cannot afford to board in
the country whore dry air at a high
altitude Is to be obtained, should hire
out to farmers and thus save their
lives, He advises patients suffering
from Incipient consumption to club to
gether nnd live outdoors in tents for
eight or nine months In the year, and
stear clear of the wily sanatorium
That the argument regarding the de
pressing association in an Institution
with sick people Is true will be recog
nized by all who have been so unfor
tunate as to be ordered away for
treatment. Invariably th,ey bemoan
their fate in being obliged to see no
body in their Immediate vicinity who
has more than one lung or less than a
hacking cough. A resident of this city
who went south for his health last
winter, tied homeward at the expira
tion if a fortnight In sheer despera
tion from the solicitous inquiries of
other patients at the resort, and their
determination to see that ho took tho
Innumerable remedies they prescribed.
It Isn't such an, enviable position to
be a domestic employe of tho Emperor
of Germany. "Women servants receive
$12 per month, men from $15 to $2j. No
wonder they wnnt to come to America,
where they can run the entire ranch In
which they are located.
A New Investment.
As a health resort alone, Hawaii
would bo n valuable acquisition. Tho
temperature never declines below C3
degrees and does not rise above SO de
grees. Cases of sunstroke are unknown
and the notable difference between the
climate of Uo Islands and of tropical
latitudes In America is that no ener
vation ensues from Its effect. It Is
possible to perform hard, physical
labor In the open air at any time In
the year. Epidemics have very seldom
visited the Islands and have been of
the lightest description. Diphtheria,
pneumonia and kindred diseases are
unknown and while one of the islands,
Molokai, Is the sad Isle of lepers, so
strict are the quarantine regulations
that an extra safeguard Is thrown
around the Inhabitants of the others.
Its sea bathing Is unparalleled.
There are eight habitable Islands In
the group capable of cultivation. Ha
waii, the largest, contains 4,210 square
miles, or 2,500.000 acres of land, nnd
has an elevation of 13.&05 feet above
sea level. It Is particularly well adapt
ed to tho cultivation of coffee In Its
highest degree of perfection. Some cof
fee planters have 200,000 trees on their
plantations. Thousands of acres are
not under cultivation and now await
the inllux of newcomers certain to Hock
thither If annexation is assured.
Old Mrs. Terry, who celebrated her
one hundred and fifth birthday at her
home in Philadelphia, on Saturday, at
tributes her long life In part to the
fact that she never worked hard when
a girl or later. This theory, If true,
should not be too much advertised, as
there Is a reasonable possibility that
some people who might be named will
undertake to live on Indetlnltely by Its
Joy for the College Hoy.
There Is good news for the men who
propose to go Into training for col
lege contests In athletics, Sandow, the
athlete, condemns the training process
given to oarsmen, runners, etc., on tho
grounds that It is pernicious and even
dangerous. In the normal man this
cutting off food and little luxuries to
which he has been accustomed all his
life does not produce muscle and "go,"
which he might obtain by moro judic
ious methods and far less exercise'.
Sandow asserts that ho has proved his
theory by training two men, ono ac
cording to university methods, tlia
other by a system of his own. Ite
peatedly the latter Has won In applied
tests. IIh'Is willing to guarantee that
If he could have the training of ono. of
the unlverslt,crew3 they shall win.
If superiority In muscle, wind and gen
crnl vitality can do It, and that no
such crew will ever have been seen In
a university eight or any other racing
boat before. Sandow should bo given
the task ot fitting one of our Ameri
can crews to challcngo Oxford. None
oftho oarsmen would object to being
allowed their tobacco nnd usual bill of
faro and to do considerably less work.
Senator J. J. Ingall's daughter Is to
take tho vows of a deaconess, nbjure
marriage nnd promise obedlcnco to
church authority. A number of deacon
esses of various orders have taken up
the work of college settlements In
various neglected portions of tho coun
try. "Whether Miss Ingnlls wilt bo
chosen to do city mission duties or will
bo sent to a settlement has not been
announced. It Is snld that Borne of the
deaconesses located In the south after
some months' residence In a log cabin
among the mountains, are able to re
joice over the result of their labors In
beholding some of their disciples cat

WHY NOT GET TOGETHER!
From the Ilarrlsburg Independent.
Just as was expected tho new stato
capitol building affair has gotten Into
tho courts, and now, if tho commission
docs not watch Itself there will bo no
end to delays and tho erection of tho
new capitol will bo far distantly re
moved. An architect has taken tho mat
ter Into court, nnd this is only tho be
ginning of tho trouble. Moro Is to fol
low. Tills should servo as a warning to
tho members of that commission and they
should not forget that they have a sac
red duty to perform nnd tho people ex
pect the members of that commission to
bo true to their trust. Governor Hastings
lilts the nail on the head in speaking of
this tanglo and suggesting a way out of
tho difficulty when he said: "Stand by
our plighted faith to tho people ot tho
state; carry out tho terms of tho pro
gramme as originally ngrced upon: stop
lawlng and commerce building; glvo tho
state 100 cents worth of capitol for every
dollar appropriated. There is yet time
to complete tho building before the next
meeting of tho general nsxembly, but
there Is not a day to spare." Tho gover
nor says bo can assure tho people of tho
stato that tho new capitol can bo built
within tho appropriation and bo ready
for tho next legislature. If ono of the
plans presented to the commission is
ndopted. What moro can the peoplo of
this commonwealth expect? Delays nro
dangerous, as tho Star-Indcpendcnt has
previously remarked In connection with
this matter, and wo nro all familiar with
the courso pursued by tho courts. If
litigation Is onco properly begun the stato
capitol building project will be tied up
Indefinitely. Gentlemen, why not get to

a business-like way without further do

From tho Wllkes-Barro Times.
Those newspapers that are continual
ly posing as tho "friend of tho working
man" and endorsing lawlessness nnd mob
lulo Instead ot government by tho legal
ly constituted authorities aro tho worst
enemies of the worklngman nnd every
ono of their anarchistic articles an In
sult to him. Tho Intelligent working
man or trades unionist Is a law abiding
citizen and it was not ho who kicked
up tho riot in tho Hnzleton region. On
tho contrary tho American spenklng
worklngmcn and members of trades
unions nro tho peoplo who wero most
anxious and potent In putting down tho
foreign peaco disturbances and prevent
ing violence. If tho nowspapers which
nro counselling resistance to law and
order nnd calling Sheriff Martin and his
deputies murderers Imagine that they
nro pleasing tho honest worklngmen nnd
members of trade organizations by their
courso and thus making business friends,
they are much mistaken. These aro tho
very people, who want tho laws upheld.
KEEPING CLOSE WATCH.
From tho Rochester Democrat Chronicle,
Tho dispatch of tho gunboat Wheeling
to Honolulu 0vlth dispatches In ndvanco
of tho mall steamer, may mean much or
little. If tho reports that Jupaneco sol
diers nro landing as contract laborers
aro true, It may bo deemed advisable
to hoist tho flag In Honolulu nnd give
Japan to understand thnt further at
tempts to lnttmldato tho government of
the Islands will bo resonted.
Judging from reports by tho last mall
steamer, Senator Morgan did not lot any
grass grow under his feet before mak
ing full Inquiry of tho Hawaiian cabinet
ns to tho situation. What he discovered
Is not known, but tho Information ho
obtulncd, backed by his sound Judgment,
may hava influenced tha administration
to send out tho Wheeling as quickly as
she could clear, and nlso got the Balti
more ready. Spreckcls Is quite as likely
to be tho chlof disturbing element as the
Japanese. He would not hesitate to work
with tho Japnncao to protect himself In
tha use of coollo labor for tho production
of sugar to bo ndmlttcd free, of duty at
tho ports of tho United Btates. Spreck
els should bo squelched, If necessary, to
assuro peaco and prosperity.
Ratification of tho treaty ot nnnoxatlon
by tho Hnwallnn legislature renders tho
raising of tho American flag a more form
ality which mny well bo observed nt
onco If our representative deems It neces
sary. Senator Morgan's Judgment In re
gard to tho matter will havo great
weight, as ho enjoys tho confidence of his
account of his sound nnd patriotic views
on International questions. Tho visit of
tho senator to Hawnll at tho present
tlmo Is opportune, nnd It may bo pre
sumed that his going wits of moro Im
portance than that of a minister pleni

From Congressman Dlngley's Paper, the
Lewlston (Me.) Journal.
Thero is a pretty good reason to believo
that tho members of tho commltteo on
ways and means those of tho majority,
nt least fully sympathize with t'ne views
against trust protection, and that in fram
ing tho bill they will bo guided by a de
termination to gunrd so far as possible
against any provision whlah would give
special privileges to any person or com
bination of persons, or hinder or prevent
freo domestic competition. Tho manu
facturers themselves, who havo nppearcd
beforo tho ways nnd means committee,
through their representatives or In writ
ing, havo protested that they not only
do not fear, but that, on tho contrary,
they desire nnd welcome homo competi
tion, and they will be taken at their
word, If present Indications can bo re
garded as trustworthy.
Closely related to this subject nnd hav
ing nn Important bearing on It, In tho
opinion of members of tho committee, Is
that of wages. Tho representatives of
nearly every manufacturing and other
Industry, no well as every wage-earner
who appeared liefore tho committee, dwelt
on and complained of tho enforced reduc
tions of wages and tho loss of time and
employment caused by the tariff legis
lation of 1SJI. Theso facts will undoubted
ly and deservedly havo great weight with
tho committee on ways and means, and It
would not seem rash to predict that In fix
ing rates of duty they will be careful not
to discriminate in favor at least of thoso
branches of Industry in which combina
tions to control production or regulato
prices and restrict domestic competition
havo been formed nnd tho wages of per
sons employed therein at tho samo tlmo
From tho Loulsvlllo Post.
It would occasionally seem as If somo
physicians dovoto much of their tlmo to
hunting up rensons why mankind should
glvo up tho wheel. Long ago It was tho
bicycle hump, then tho bicycle face,
these being followed by the bicycle volco
nnd other equally serious troubles, all of
which havo been laughed to scorn by de
votees of tho wheel. Now comes a med
ical person of Philadelphia with tho
alarming Information that bicycle catarrh
Is among the perils that must be faced
by thoso who rldo wheels. Says tho
"It's no fancied 111 this 'blcyclo ca
tarrh,' and It's putting lots of money
Into tho pockets of cyo specialists and
opticians ns well ns physicians whoso
practice Is general. Tho blcyclo crank,
you know, nearly nlways overdoes tho
sport und rides live times ns far and llvo
times as long as bo ought to. His own
motion creates a continual wind pres
suro on his faco nnd tho strain upon
eyes, ears, noso nnd throat Is abnormal.
I havo found In my practice that thrco
wheelmen out of every ten nro uflllcted
with catarrh In if more or less advanced
stage, the conditions generally affecting
tho eyes. Tho snmo stato of affairs Is
notlcenblo In motormen, locomotive en
gineers nnd others who are constantly
facing the wind, but tho modern Instru
ment of locomotion Is responsible for
such a largo Increase In tho number of
cases that wo feel perfectly Justified In
calling tho ailment 'bicycle catarrh. "
THE POLL TAX EVIL.
From tho Philadelphia Bulletin.
An nttempt was mndo in tho last leg
islature to havo poll taxes paid directly
by citizens; but tho politicians got tho
better of it in tho law that was passed,
by having a clause Inserted which allowed
tho taxable to glvo n written and signed
order to somo ono clso to pay the tax
Tho Republican city committee ngrced
yesterday to have blrinks for that pur

power of attorney to the committee to

Is likely to bo llttlo difference between
the old way and tho new way, oxcept

The man who does not care enough for
tho right of franchlso to pay tho twenty

of him, ought not to hnvo tho right to

havo set Its face against tho practice,
