English Fears of Invasion
The Bitter Experience of France. Cited by
Way of Justification
Ey H. ID. Stebbings
?. i R. Siegmund Hubert in a letter smiles at British fears of a
I ? 1 German invasion and talks of the wild panic in London in
f^$J jj 1CS3; but he aeed not go so far back-the coast towns cr
the North Atlantic States were just as panic-stricken dur
ing .the Spanish-American war, though Cervera's fleet was
thousands of miles away.
France neglected repeated warnings to keep her fron
tier protected, and Germany after long secret preparation:
caught her napping and descended on Paris is a war which
?was pure military aggression, except in the eyes of this military nation, which
ls, was, and probably will be the greatest menace to universal peace until
lier star shall set.
Germany is building up a wonderful home empire, and with her great
?army she is perfectly secure from invasion; but she has few colonies to pro
tect and has very secure seaports, so that it hard to understand her feverish
desire to build a mighty navy. It. is hardly likely that England with her
enormous outlying possessions and her own exposed coasts can complacently
?lt idle. Her very existence is at stake. Only the ignorant in each na\ion
Indulge in Cheap sneers at the other's expense. History in the past has
proved that in her worst hours of trouble Germany has found foes, around her
cn all sides, but never England. Germany is forging ahead now, but her rise
to power is no more wonderful than the stupendous power gained over the
sea and in every quarter of the globe by practically the smallest country in
Europe. Of course vre arc trained to think tbe British slow, obtuse, and quite
deserving of cheap insults commonly thrown at them, but the fact remains
that the British have opened up the entire world, while other nations stayed
at home. Th-.jy have built up a foreign trade which is amazing. On their
trade routes Germany and ourselves have eagerly followed, and perhaps with
newer methods, and by avoiding their mistakes, and profiting by their experi
ence we may beat them out in the end, but we have yet to oust them. And
ought we to boast too loudly when we have yet far to go?

~7Th~? "Palmy Days" of the Profession
Mw ay s Receding : : : : : :
Ey Charles Eattell Loomis, of New York
LD fogies of all ages (some are not yet 21) make me tired.
You'll always find the. old fogy who longs for the days when
actors could really act and when Shakespeare was ade
quately represented. Old fogies of this year of grace hark
back to the "good old days" of the late '70's, but I remem
ber that critics who wrote in those days were in the habit
of picking flaws in Edwin Booth himself and prating of the
days of his father and Macready and Forrest.
Now as a matter of fact (I like to be didactic this hot
weather) those-who saw the recent production of "Twelfth Night" at the
Academy of music saw the very best Malvolio that has been seen in New
York in thirty years. I have seen at least half a dozen Malvolios, Americans,
. English and one German in that time, and Edward Sothern more nearly real
ized the part than any other.
Thirty years from now some old fogy of that time will be mourning for the
palmy "old days of the first decade of the twentieth century, when Shakes;
peare was really played," and yet I'll venture to say that each ago will raiso
up its own capable actors.
For versatility there was of courte one Edwin Booth, but as great as
he may-now be doing turns In some cheap East Side music hall. Not only
do we have the poor always with us, but genius is peculiar to no generation.
Perhaps the man who will make New York remembered may to-day be crying
for his bottle in New Zealand; but those who did not see Sotherr. and Mar
lowe missed a dramatic treat th it in a smaller theatre would have been
almost too good to be true.

At an extended conference Friday
night -with Secretary Nagel, of the
Department of Commerce and Labor;
Past master General Hitchcock and L.
Dana Durand, Director of the Census,
President Taft at Beverly, approved
the appointment of 330 supervisors
of the thirteenth census. The list
had been prepared here for the Pres
ident and the qualifications of every
man inquired into.
There has been marked discontent
among some Southern Republicans
over the decision of the President to
divide the census patronage in the
States of the "solid South."
Coi. Cecil Lyon, Republican na
tional committeeman from Texas,
who came to Beverly Friday, told the
President that be would rather have
the State put in charge of one super
visor-a good Republican-than to
have to divide the congressional dis
tricts: with the Democrats. Colonel
Lyon said the declaration of this pel
icy on his part held good for all of
the States. Oklahoma, he declared,
had been included with. Tennessee,
Kentucky, North Carolina and Mis
souri in the list of nearly doubtful
States that had been set apart from
the other Southern States for a full
list of Republican supervisors.
"If Oklahoma is a Northern
State," .declared Colonel Lyon, "I
am iu favor of moving Mason and
Dixon's line still further South to
let Texas in."
Each census supervisor will hav^ a
tremendous field force of enumera
tors under him, The supervisors will
receive a salary of $2,000 and their
work will extend over eight or ten
months. ThcStates where the super
visors are divided equally between
the Democrats and Republicans are
Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia,
Florida, Alshama, Mississippi, Ar
kansas, Loi ibiana and Texas, in most
of the States supervisors are appoint
ed in each congressional district.
President Taft, it is said, laid down
the-rules ^specially in. States where
a div ?sion has been made between
Democrats and Republicans, that su
pervisors shall not be active parti
sans and that no attempt should be
made to build up political machines
out of the census patronage.
The President appointed Charles A.
Overlock, of Douglas, Ariz., as Unit
ed States marshal for that Territory.
He also signed the commissions of
some sixty-odd supervisors in differ
ent sections of the country and the
names of these appointees were made
public by Mr. Durand at the conclu
sion of the conference.

President Taft at Beverly, talked
over the Cuban situation for an hour
Sunday afternoon with Carlos Garcia
Velez, the island's minister to Wash
ington. From 3 until 4 o'clock the
diplomat and the President sat in
earnest conversation on the veranda
of the Taft cottage. Mr. Velez de
clared after the long interview that
he had found President Taft deeply
interested in Cuba and thoroughly
acquainted with the ideals aud ambit
ions of the people. Mr. Velez said he
realized that forces were at work in
the hope of disintegrating-the repub
lic. Some of the American newspa
pers, he declared, had said unkind
things about the Cuban people which
were disheartening and discouraging,
but he emphatically shook his head
and. said, "No, no, no," when asked
if he thought it ever would be neces
sary for the United States again to
intervene to set the republic'* J:ouse
In a letter addressed Sunday to
Secretary Nagel, of the Department
of Commerce and labor, President
Taft served notice that any man en
gaged in the taking of the thirteenth
census of the United States who en
gages in politics in any way will be
dismissed immediately from the ser
vice. At the same time announce
ment was made of the appointment
of 134 additional supervisors. Out
side of casting their votes the Presi
dent believes that census supervisors
and enumerators should keep clear of
anything that savors of polities, nat
ional, State or local. In his lettter
President Taft orders that the Secre
tary of Commerce and Labor and the
director of the census embody in the
regulations governing the taking of
the census the rule as forcibly laid
down in his letter. Mr. Taft says
that in appointing census supervisors
it has been found necessary to select
men recommended by Senators and
Congressmen in their districts. Ho
says he realizes that this method of
selection might easily be perverted to
political purposes, and it is to take
the census out of politics, so far as
the actual work is concerned, that he
has explicitly expressed his desire as
to tho regulations. The census super
visors announced from North Caro
lina and South Carolina as follows:
North Carolina-First district, Jo
siah C. Meekin, Sr.: second, James M.
Newboxn ; third, H. Frank Brown ;
fourth, William Claudius Pearson;
sixth, Irvine B. Tucker; seventh, A.'

Between 1890 and 1896 there was very
little progress, but then began a mar

without abatement ever since, by
1900 the total value was $4,717,000,
000. Since then the momentum has
continued until in the last three
years, estimating 1909, the aggregate
