Despite Assertions of Postoffic*:
Officials, Republicans Arc
CONTROL OF LIQUOR TRAFFIC
Striking Suggestion Made By
Member of Virginia Con?
(From Cnr Rogulnr Correspondent.)
?\ ASUNCION, D. C, July ? 7.-Rur;iI
free delivery statistics bIiow that the Flrrt
Congressional District of Tennessee, rep?
resented by ,W. CI. Brownlow, ties with
the Tenth District of lown, In the num?
ber of rural free delivery routes es?
tablished, and that they'are the banner
rural free delivery districts In the United
States. It Is probable that the I^lrst Ten?
nessee, will lie ahead of the Tenth Iowa
before tho end of the present month. Each
of these districts now have 263 routes es?
tablished, but the Tennessco congressman
still has the most petitions pending.
An nnalysls of the department's figur?e
wou|d seem to show that there 1? poli?
tics In- the establishment of rural routes,
despite the assertions of the postofflcc
officials to the contrari?. Por Instance It
can hardly bo urged tnat there "Is occa?
sion for twice as many routes in the
First Tennessee District as there Is for
any other district In the entire South,
and yet they are there. It can hardly
have "Just happened so," that there
should be fewer rejections in that dis?
trict represented by a Democrat, either
In Tennessee or any other State in the
country. It could hardly have been a mere
matter of chance that In Democratic dis?
tricts there are almost without excep?
tion more rejected petitions than there
arc In districts that Republican. So it
Is In the matter of pending Applications.
The figures show that almost without
exception ' the Republican members get
more prompt consideration for their peti?
tions than the Democrats do.
"It Might Prejudice the People."
Congress recently enacted a law pro?
viding that no railroad should keep stock
In care longer than twenty-eight hours
without giving them water and feed.
From the day of Its enactment to the
present the majority of railroads have
wilfully and persistently violated Its pre?
visione, despite frequent admonitions
from the Department of Agriculture.
>lnally the department decided to prose?
cute the railroads violating tho law, and
'over 1.390 cases were made out against
railroads In every State In the Union.
In order to get the cases against the
roads operating in territory covered by
this paper the writer went to the solici?
tor /or agriculture and asked to see
the list, but that official refused point
blank to show it, saying that It would
noi be shown, to any newspapcr,.manvAnd
then '. In .'explanation of his", action, he
said that It might create an unjust pre?
judice against the railroads, and at least
make a feeling against them.
"It may be true that It would create
some feeling against the railroads," re?
plied the correspondent, "but If they have
gone ahead and defiantly violated the
stock shipping law, what reason Is there
that you should now be so careful as to
not hurt their dear feelings? And further?
more, the cases will come up In the court?
after you have put them into the hands
of the Department of Justice, so what are
the odds whether the Information Is given
out piecemeal then, or as a whole now?"
To which the solicitor roplicd that it
would be unjust to the railroads. It Is
rather paradoxical that he should take
mich a position.
To Control the Liquor Traffic
. A member of the Virginia congressional
delegation who is neither visionary' nor
dreamer, but one of the most level-headed
men In the State, in tho course o? a re?
cent conversation while here, suggested a
new method of dealing with the liquor
question, and It seems to be about tho
most logical proposition yet brought for?
ward for overcoming the evils attendant
upon, and growing put of the sale of in?
"Knact a law prohibiting the drinking'
of liquor at the place where It Is sold,
and you will abolish nine-tenths of tho
evils of the liquor traffic," Is the way he
put It. "Do you know," ho continued,
"that very few men would get drunk If
It were not for this habit of treating. It
Is tho 'come nnd have a drink with me,'
and then tho 'have one on me,' that
makes men drunkards, When we get
ready to enact such a law we will have
taken our most Important step In con?
trolling the liquor traffic."

"Oh, Hyde's Just a young fool. His

"Ifs as hard for a wealthy man to got

executive committee of the East Caro?

tion, relative to the advisability of
changing the location of the new truck
tent farm from Willard to Wilmington.
It looks now like the change will not
be made, as the soils at Willard are
tho most representative of th? . general
trucking section, and the Wilmington ;
parties seem to desire more of an "objet
iesson" farm than an experiment farm.
They want a farm that will exempt.fy
the. yield possibilities of. the toil rather
thanthe mere improvement of the yarle
tles'bf truck arid berries, which is the
prime object'of'the State Board of Agri?
culture In establishing these farms.

This case has become a noted one in
the annals of this court. It has been upon

Running Things at Less Than
Cost on His Great Bilt
(Special to The Times-Dispatch.)
'. 'ASHEVILLE, N. C, July 7,-Bumor of
an impending shake ijp on the estate
of George W. Vanderbih has stirred the
village of Blhmore to a considerable
extent. When Mr. and Mrs. Vanderb It
returned to Biltmoro last year, rumor
had It that Mr. Vanderbllt would prob?
ably mnke Biltmoce his permanent place
of residence, and would givo pe.sonni
attention to the Immenso estate, and
that the working forco 'would be mate?
rially reduced. This rumor was confirm?
ed last November by the wholesale cut?
ting off of employe?, nnd tho subsequent
resignation of Charles McNamee as gen?
eral mnnager of the estate.
Rumors now afloat will probably again
find verification in a further reduc.lon
of forco and tho plac.ng of
several of the departments und.r

(By Associated Press.)
ASBURY PARK, N. J., July 7.-? crowd
of 30,000 porsons, which turned out to
welcome President Roosevelt, made Fri?
day, the closing day of the National
Educational Association Convention, the
most Impressive of all the great educa?
The duties of the rich, was tho subject
matter of the speech which the Presi?
dent delivered to the educators. Although
this was tho last day of the convention
the President found 12,000 delegates, near-;
ly all school teachers, whiting to hear
his'speech, which was made |n tho
Ocean Grove Auditorium.
Several pretty receptions marked the
trip from the depot to t^ie auditorium.
Outside the depot the, Indian hand from
Carlisle school was In waiting and fell
into line Immediately before the Presi?
dent's carriage. As the carriage turned
into Main Street it pnssed a wagon Oiled
with negroes, who hegan to cheer. In
response tho President waived his hand
at tho delighted negroes.
When tho President entered the auditor?
ium thousands mounted chnirs and cheer?
ed hi. As soon as quiet had been restored
he began to speak. He said:
"I am glad to have the chance of
greeting the National Education As?
sociation: for In all Its democratic
land there Is no more genuinely demo?
cratic association than this. It is
truly democratic, because her/? each
member meets every other member as
his peer without regard to whether
ho Is the president of one of the
great universities or the newest re?
cruit to that high and honorable pro?
fession which has in Its charge the up?
bringing and training of those boye
and girls who in a few short years
will themselves he settling the des?
tinies of this nation.
"It Is not too much to say that the
most characteristic work of the repub?
lic Is that done by the, educators, for
whatever bur shortcomings as a na?
tion may be, we have at lenst firmly
grasped the fact that we can not do
our'part in the difficult and all-Im?
portant work of Self-government,
that We can not rule and govern our?
selves, unless we approach the task
with developed minds and trained
characters. You teachers make the
whole world your debtor. If you did
not do your work well this republic
would not endure beyond the span of
the generation. Moreover, as an in?
cident to your avowed work, you ren?
der soave well-nigh unbelievable ser?
vices to the country. ' For Instance,
you render to the republic the prime,
the vital service of amalgamating Into
one homogenous body' the children
alike of those who are horn here and
of those who come .here from so many
different lands abroad. You furnish
a common training.and -common ideals -.
for'the'children'of Ail the? ralx'ed; peo?
ples who are here being fused Into
one nationality. Jt Is In no small, de^?
gree due; to you and your efforts"that
we are one-people instead of*a group
of Jarring peoples. - ?
The Man of Wealth.
"Moreover, where altogether too
much prominence Is given to tho mere
possession of wealth, the country is
under heavy obligations to such a
body as this, which substitutes for the
ideal of accumulating money the In?
finitely loftier, nonmaterlallstlc Ideal,
of devotion to work worth doing sim?
ply for that work's sake. I do not
in the least underestimate the need
of having material prosperity as the
basis of our civilization, but I most
earnestly Insist that It pur civilization
does not build a loftly 'superstructure
on this basis, we can never rank
among the really great peoples. A
certain amount of money is of course
a necessary thing, ns much for the
nation as for the Individual; and there
are few movements In which I. more
thoroughly believe than In tho move?
ment to secure better remuneration for-,
our teachers. But, after all, the ser-!
vice you render Is incalculable, brause '
of the very fact that by your lives
you show that you believe Ideals to be
worth 'sacrifice, and that you are
splendidly eager to do nonremunern
tive work If this work Is of good to
"To furnish In your lives such a
realized high Ideal Is to do a groat
service to the country. The chief
harm done by tho men of swollen for?
tune to the community is not the harm
that the. demagogue Is apt to depict
as springing from their actions, but ,
the fact that their success sets up a
false standard, and so serves ns a bad
example for the rest of us. If we did
not oursolves attach an exaggerated f.
importance to the rich man who Is
distinguished only by his riches, this
rich man would have a most Insignifi?
cant Influence over us. It Is general?
ly our own fault If ho does damage to
us, for ho damages us chiefly by
arousing our envy or by rendering us
sour and discontented. In, his actual
business relations he Is mudi moro
npt to benefit than harm the rest of
us; nnd though It Is eminently right
to take whatever steps are necessary
In order to prevent the exceptional
members of this class from doing
hnrm. It is wicked folly to let our?
selves be drnwn Into nny attack upon
the man of wealth merely as such.
"Moreover, sucli nn attack Is in it?
self an exceptionally crooked nnd ugly
tribute to wealth, nnd therefore tho
proof of nn exceptionally ugly and ?>
crooked state of mind In the mnn
making the attack. Venomous envy
of wealth Is simply another form of
the spirit, which In ono of Its mani?
festations takes the shape of cringing
servility toward wealth, and In an?
other the shape of brutal arrognnco

(By Associated Press.)
OYSTER BAY, July 7.-Offlc!al an?
nouncement was made here to-day that
Ellhu Root has been appointed Secre?
tary of State. The folowing statement
was Issued: .
"Ellhu Root has accepted the tender

of office In a couple of weeks, but It
will necessarily be some little time
before he closes up his busln?s? affairs.

by Mr. Root In again taking up tho
burdens and duties of a member of the

department, he will give up entirely his
President Roosevelt paid an appropri?
ate and eloquent tribute to the life and
services of the late Secretary of State,
John Hay, In his addrosa before the
National , Educational Association at
Ocean Grove tb-day. He followed this
tribute with an estimate of the personal
sacrifice Ellhu Boot had made |n be?
coming Secretary Hay's successor in of?
fice. The example of these two men, not
entirely unique as the Pres'dont Indi?
cated In references ho made to other
members of his cabinet, enabled him
to point the moral that tho country al?
ways hnd at Its command the services
of men of ability.
on tho part of certain mon of wealth.
Each one of theso states of mind,
whether It bo hatred, servility, or ar?
rogance, Is In reality closely akin to
the other two; for each of them
springs from a fantastically twisted
and exaggerated idea , of the impor?
tance of. wealth as compared to other
things. The clamor of the domn
gogue against wealth, the snobbery
of the social columns of the newspa?
pers which deal with tho doings of
the wealthy, and tho misconduct of
those men of wealth who act with
brutal disregard of the rights of
others, seem superficially to have no
fundamental relation; yet in reality
they spring from shortcomings which
are fundamentally the same; and one
of these shortcomings Is the failure
to have proper Ideals.
The Truly Great.
"This failure must bo remedied In
largo part by the actions of you and
your fellow-teachers, your fellow-edu?
cators throughout this land. By your
lives, no less than by your teaohlngs,
you show that while you regnrd wealth
ns a good thing, you regard other
things as still better. It Is absolutely
nocessnry to earn a certain amount of
money; it is a man's first duty to those
dependent upon him te earn enough
for their support; but after a certain
point has been reached money-making
can never stand on tlio same plane
with other and nobler forms of effort.

who have used their riches aright, who?
have treated wealth not as an end, but
as ? means, who have Bhown good
