If you want to save fees elect Itepub
llrnn nfllclsiK The truth ot this state
ment Is shown In the efforts of City
TiPtisurer Oreen to save the taxpayers
of the city fees in connection with the
business ot his otriee. He Is anxious to
see an amendment submlttted to the
charter which will do away with the ne
cessity of every land owner who-e prop
erty Is sold for taxes being compelled to
spend jr, in extra fees when he comes to
redeem the property. The sale of the
land Is hardship enough without burden
ing the owner with unnecessary fees.
The taxpayers of the city nre very anx
ious that this amendment shall be sub
mitted and on general principles It is
certainly safe to save fees whenever it
can be done.
There l nothing complicated In the
amendment desired. The charier at
present requites the certificate of pui
chase, when land is sold for taxes, to be
acknowledged before a notary, which
costs r,0 cents. This certificate must then
be filed with the recorder of deeds,
which coits M.23; when the propel ty Is
redeemed, the certlllcate of redemption
must be acknowledged, which costs 50
cents again, and the certificate of re
demption must be (lied with the re
corder of deeds, which tnkes another 75
cents out of the pockets of the taxpayer.
If the owner sells the land after It Is
redeemed, he must pay the abstracter
U fur showing In the nbstract that the
land was sold for taxes and anuther St
for showing the redemption of the prop
erty. There are on an nverage about
3.000 tractB of lutid sold every year, and
this entails tinder the present charter
a needless exppnse nf 5tr,.000 In addition
to all the heavy costs attached to the
sale of the land and Its redemption.
This could be saved by simply doing
away with the necessity of recording
the certlllcate of purchase, as the city
treasurer's books show eveiything that
the recorder's books show The city
treasurer's office Is an olllci of record.
If such an amendment as is proposed Is
submitted. It will undoubtedly "add
strengih to the ticket" and will relieve
th people from unnecessary fees.

The assurance that an interstate fair
Will be held here this fall Is nn evidence
uf both good judgment and enterprise on
the part of the fair management, and
the decision to hold the fair during the
week of the 11 tests of I'allas festivities
Is a wise one. There is no reason why
Iheue two enterprises should not work
together In harmony unci without any
trleiloii. They do not eonlllet In eithsr
objects or results, but are mutually
helpful. The people of Kansaa City owe
It to the people of the great Sonthwost
to Issue Invitations for an annual "at
home," when the city may entertain In
formally btn attractively the people
from whom the city receives to many
courtesies during the year. The terri
tory tributary to this city Is growing
richer and more populous mery year,
and there Is nothing mercenary in tu
elfon to gain the good will of the people
of this territory. H Is nelRhborllness
and good business sense combined.
The success of the interstate fairs In
the past has been if niarkahle, and in
the proportion In which the fairs have
been a llnnncial success they have re.
suited In public good. There Is no lea
son why the people of the great South
Wfst should go anywhere else for their
entertainment. They have long ceased
to go anywhere else for the spectacular
paReants in the fall, and they should
come lure lo witness the exhibition of
the resources of the two great states
bound together so closely by commer
cial ties. Tor every dollar the Interstate
fair puts In Ihe pockets of the fair man

To the Kditor of the Journal.
There Is no more Important duty in a re
public than that of toleration, nnd guard
ing against tyranny that creeps In under
a thousand plausible forms. I saw It stated
that the woman at the head of the
"Christian Scientists" In Kansas City Is
to be arrested for practicing medicine. No
posslblo twist ot language or facts can
make It appear that people who absolutely
refuse to have anything to do with medi
cine arc guilty of "practicing medicine."
It Is simply a manifestation ot hydra
headed tyranny to arrest one of them.
I started out In lite to be an allopathic
physician and have paid a good deal of at
tention to medicine. I believe only In that
practice, always call such physicians In
case of need and believe In calling them
early in a case. Nobody can be fnrthei
than I am from any belief In "Christian
Silence," Hut when grown persons, In
health, and In possession of whatever
sense they have, decide that whenever
sick they want this, that or the other sys
tem tried on them It ! their right and to
Interfere iw tyianny. The praeiUe of ty
ranny makes a brute and barbarian out
of the one who practices It on the others.
Most persons believe In a soul and that
Its destiny Is immeasurably more Import
ant than that of the body. And who could
know all about the soul as well as theo
Igians, Just as "regular" doctois about the
body? And when folk would not take
what the theological doctors prescribed
for their souls what more natural than
that they should he saved from themselves
by governmental wl.-dom using various
tortures'.' We have at Inst agreed that the
tremendous question of the destiny
of "the Immortal part of man"
bo left to each man himself, bm
we hang to the Idea that nls body shall
only be dosed according to the dictates of
the supreme and unquestionably very great
wisdom of the Mlssotiti legislatuie.
Suppore Ihe boot Were on the other foot;
that the ('. S. weic in the majority and
were to go lo work to imprison every al
lopathic physician who has ever in hl
practice caused or permitted uselessly a
death. Would there be a stampede from
the state or not?
When the Salvation Army first began It
was most bitterly assailed by th" church.
Now every one sees that It is reaching a
doss that can not be otherwise t cached
(like Meneral Jo Shelby's negro marshal).
So the I'. S. are reaching certain nlnlades
itnaginalres who would bailie nnd have
ballled allopathy, And the worst harm
done Is cutting olf the pruflts from the
salc-s of placebos.
There Id. no profession In the world that
ought to be more modest than that of med
icine, when it looks back upon the toad
over which It has come as proved by word
lore unit by the evidence of the two words
from which came our words "medicine"
In the writings in the language of Hie
cuneiform Inscriptions of .Mesopotamia
called "Akkadian" by Ihe great French
scholar I.enormnnt. there are vast iiiimbeis
of ways of protecting against and curing
attacks by evil spirits livery sickness
was thought to be catt,ed by an evil spirit.
The nnme in Akkadian Is gigim. The two
last letters only indicate the plural form;
the root Is gig. In Ihe Assyrian transla
tion this Is eklm. This shows that the e
of the latter word was the e of the Husslan
language or to-day. Yh as "et," and the
llrst g in the oblei word was soft like y.
This sound of ek ibd;) und gig lylki tilings
us near to our own wind "sick." Swedish
sink ispoken as "shook"i. It is thus plain
that sbkiiess was thought to bn "demon
iac possession" amopg early men. (Follow
ing Cesenlus I believe in the "Slav theory"
of the origin of .Mesopotainliin civilization.
The Aryan race never got a solitary ele
ment of civilization fluni any oilier race.)

Washington, April .1. Thero Is rinson to
believe Hint the Hrlllsh government has
given our ambassador, Mr. Hnyard, to un
derstand, In response to his represeiiln.
tlons In tho Venezuelan boundary matter,
on his suggestion that It be submitted to
arbitration, that It must persist In regard
ing the subject as one In which only Orent
llritnln and Venezuela aro concerned. Of
course the Idea was set out very dlplonuU
IcaHy nnd courteously so ns to avoid giv
ing offense ns far ns possible, while still
making It plain that the United Slates
could not bo regarded ns having any proper
Interest In the matter. So, as It stands,
tho Hrltlsh government still Insists upon Its
absolute title nnd right to occupy nil ot
the territory to the eastward ot the Hchom
berg line, while professing a willingness to
submit to arbitration Its claims to the
lands lying west of that line. This was the
offer mado to Venezuela years ago, and It
hits not been modified In any respect since,
notwithstanding Mr. Hay aid's efforts. It
has been intimated that the Fulled States
might acqulro a right to Intervene In be
half of Venezuela by declaring u protect
orate over that cuuntry, with tho assent ot
Its people nnd behind this suggestion Is tit
least one of the great lluropean powers,
who would be glad to have Its relations
with the disturbed countries of South and
Central America placed on a stable basis
so that It might look to some thoroughly
responsible highly civilized government to
ensure the permanence ot trade ami pre
vent frequent revolutions. Hut to concede
the necessity for such a protectorate as a
prerequisite to Interfering to prevent the
acquisition of American territory by an
lluiopean power would amount to a renun
ciation uf the Mutllou doctrine by the
I'nlted States anil this cannot bo contem
plated by tho administration.
There are Indications that the Hrltlsh
foreign olllce oillclals nre willing to discuss
this leature of tho case with Mr. Hayard
at length, and so the negotiations may drag
along for many mouths unless a collision
occuis between the Hrltlsh and Venezuelan
forces In the disputed territory, or the new
Minnesota syndicate forces negotiations by
beglunlng operations under the large con
cession it bus obtained from Venezuela of
lands In that territory. The apparent ef
fects of .Mr. Hayard's efforts are being
watched with intense Interest by nil the
diplomatic representatives of the South and
Central American countries stationed In
Washington, for they realize that the Issue
may be of vital Importance to all of them
In the future. They bad expected that the
administration would be called upon to as
sume a definite position in lespect to the
extent to which It would permit the Kuro
pean powets to Interfere In the affairs of
the American republics In the recent San
Dominican affair, but the Fnlted States was
enabled to avoid the Issue, owing to con
cessions on the part of France, resulting
In nn amicable adjustment of her differ
ences with tho Dominicans. Ono of these
diplomatic representatives. In speaking
upon this subject, remarked that tho ma
jority of the South American republics
were staggering under fotelgn debts and
were unable longer to meet their obliga
tions. They could not meet the Interest on
these debts, much less could they pay off
tin, principal, owing to the terrible corn
met cial depression. Some of these coun
tries had defaulted on their Interest on
foreign debts and in others, notably Costa
HIca, It was now proposed to repudiate at
least hnlf of the debt.
Tho question confronting these countries
Is whether the Fnlted States will stand by
and permit the ctedltor nations of F.urope
to collect these debts by force. Mean
while to strengthen their claim for protec
tion upon the Fnlted States, there is In
progress among tho smaller and weaker re
publics a movement to entangle their in
teicsts wllh our own so us lo make It a
matter of deep concern to our people should
nnv lluropean power attack them. The
llrst Indication ot this policy was seen In
Hip claim of San Domingo to exemption
from the French demand upon her revenues
on the ground that these had all been
farmed out to an American corporation
which would be ruined by compliance with
the French ilemnnd. Then there is tho re
cent concession made to an American cor
poratlon to Venezuela to force the I'nlted
States Into the Issue between her and
rireat llritnln by motives of direct self-lit-tetest.
and In other countiles there has
b-en adopted a policy of farming out to
syndicates certain privileges, such as the
right to Import tobneco and opium and the
collection of customs duties.
