Dressing Used for Them Does Not
Contain Acid Blacking Does.
It seems pretty certain that for
some reason or other tan leather
keeps softer than black leather. One
explanation of this may be that in the
greater number of cases the blacken
ing used for polishing black shoes has
strongly acid properties, whereas the
pastes used for polishing brown boots
are never acid and consist of a var
nish made of oils and waxes.
In many of the formulas given for
making blacking a very large propor
tion of oil of vitriol, or strong sul
phuric acid, is directed to be used.
The chief ingredients of boot black
ing, according to the London Lancet,
appear to be ivory black, treacle and
oil of vitriol. Sometimes hydrochlo
ric acid is used.
Tbe object of the acid apparently is
to dissolve out the mineral matter
(chiefly phosphate of lime) of the
ivory black and so to reduce it to a
very fine spongy state. The result is
that the blacking is very acid, if not
with sulphuric arid, certainly with
phosphoric acid. As a matter of fact,
we have found sufficient free sulphuric
acid in blacking which we have exam
ined to char paper when dried upon it.
PHONOGRAPH SCARES THIEVES.
The wave of crime which has been
passing over Paris lately and which
the police seem quite powerless to
prevent has caused the citizens to
adopt various devices to protect their
homos from invasion by the Apaches.
Dogs having proved utterly useless,
more than one family has sought pro
tection by placing a stand with a par
rot or cockatoo possessing a specially
loud squawk just inside their flats
almost every one in Paris lives in a
An electrical engineer, however, has
found a phonograph the best possible
watchman. He locates it with the
megaphone attachment directed to
the door and he has wired the hall and
arranged batteries so that the moment
the door is opened three inches the
phonograph gets into action.
It begins to bellow: "Police! Help!
Murder! Thieves!" and it keeps it up
until he gets out of bed and turns off
the current. His Rat is well furnished
with plate and other valuables and
several attempt have been made to
rob it, but thieves have yet withstood
the phonograph bombardment. Thpy

THE STANDARD SALOON AND
(Continued from First Page.)
It was stated to a Globe renresenta-
tive that nothing whatever occurred to
warrant the raiding of the saloon and
especially the restaurant. A disturb
ance took place early in the night be
tween a man and a woman in a wine
room and ...e parties were promntlvnut
under arrest by a special policeman
who is employed and paid bv the nro-
prietor of the establishment. The man
"iado his escape by shedding his coat
n the hands of the special police
man. The screams of the woman At
tracted the attent'on of the pnssers-by
''nd excited the patrons of the then-
tre who chanced to pass. A regular
noliceman could not be located and
he woman was beld in custody until
a telenhone pessnrp brought an offi
cer from headquarters.
The raid occured just after the
nlay at the theatre was over and the
men and women had gone into the sa
loon and restaurant. The proprietor
stated that women are not allowed in
the saloon under any circumstances
and that his is the only saloon in the
city that employs a policeman to
The people are aroused over the oc
currence of last Monday night, and it
's believed that, steps will be taken to
remedy the evil.
SENATOR FORAKER'S STAND FOR
Thp sense of fair nlav. whiHi rn

nates the lives of some men. was novm-
more fittinely disnlayed than that
which has characterized the ar-tiona nf
hat intrepid and fea'dpsg sPn!,tor from
Ohio. .Tosenh B. Foraker, in his sin-
r-pre efFort to asrprtain the truth
Jbout the B'-ownsvillp affair. TTp was

the Twnty-fift.h Tnfantrv onlv inso

Hp cannot be accused bv any. but
hose who are wilfully blind to his
Meh character, both private and pub
Mc. as a man and as a statesman, of
having any overweaning npnchnnt fov
the black soldier bovs. or havimr an
ax for the Npcpt), as a rnp. to frrind.
It is reasonable to sav that Senator
Fr-raker's rspoual of tho rusp of the
black soldiers was nrpdWt"d nnon
something whifh arouspd in bis kppn
"nd aleit mind a doubt as to the!'
ruilt of rartkinaHon in the famoue
"raid" of Brownsvillp. Whatever evi-
'ence raised that doubt, when hp came
n possession of it and where, be wao
oo big a man and withal too conscien
tious to swallow It down and remain
silent. He said that if anv of tbe men of
he Twenty-fifth were cuiltv of the "af
fair." they should bp punished, but
tuat. their guilt should first be estab
lished by competent testimony or pvI-
'lence. Th s was the. bnrdpn of Tit
Hpa for the black defenders of the
Nation. That was his position on fbo
matter. Is there anything unjust, un
fair or unreasonable in it?
In his speech at Canton. Ohio. Wed
nesday night. Anril 10. Senator Fov.
aker stated that he bad supported tbp
Roosevelt administration In all of Its
mensuras evcept three. nampV: the
coming in of New Mevieo and Arizona
is one stae. tne confenner of the
atp-mal.lnrr never nnon tbn Tntprstuto
Commission, and tho dlscbavs:p with
out honor of the mr-mbpvs of compan
ies B, C and D of tho Twentv-fifth Tn
fantrv. The latter, be maintained
was an Incident and not a policy, but
one of those Incldpnts which oonld nor
he phHved because it seemingly affect-
-i --r( f)f COIOr.
nator Foraker Is one of the most
thoughtful, brilliant and powerful
members of the upper branch of Con
gress. He, being one of a few excep
tions, entered actively upon his ca
reer from his induction as a member
of that astute, august, conservative
body, participating in its legislation
and affairs. This was indicative of his
worth and future greatness as a states
man. He has an intellectual grasp
and comprehensiveness of the spirit
and genius of our democratic form of
government and its institutions which
enabled him to appreciate the danger
which lies in allowing the President
to discharge without honor, as a mat
ter of punishment, the men of com
panies B, C and D of the Twenty-fifth
Infantry, without allowing them a
chance to be heard in their own de
fense. Such a sweeping and danger
ous precedent would carry with it a
far-reaching menace to the basic prin
ciple underlying the protection of
American citizenship the right of a
fair and impartial trial. Take away
the right of trial and the basic founda
tion on which this government stands
is undermined and the liberties of the
people are gone. He has been fighting
for a principle and not merely to ex
ploit his generosity for the Negro sol
diers. The principle he is contending
for will affect posterity for all coming
time and he wants it to be safely set
As Senator Foraker contends. t
would be an inexpedient thing to
clothe the President with the power
or allow him to assume the authority
to discharge inert from the army or
navy without giving them a hearing.
The Senator's contention is based on
the soundest statesmanship. Ten
million Negroes applaud his efforts
and they place him along side' the il
lustrious Wendell Phillips, William
Lloyd Garrison, Lovejoy, Frederick
Douglass and Lincoln men who
fought the battles of humanity in the
face of overwhelming odds and won,
as Senator Foraker deserves to do.
Principles should not be affected by
race or color, and in reality they can
not be. Men whose patriotism is only
bounded by the confines of our great
country, will not stop to question who
is affected when a great principle is in
volved, they gird on their armor, un
sheath their swords and prepare to
fight. Such men will not only con
tend in the forensic arena, but they
will pay the highest prie on the field
of battle. How can we hold our hom
age from such a men, among whom
Senator Joseph B. Foraker is a con
What President Roosevelt gave to
the world in beautiful phraseology,
Senator Foraker is trying to maintain
in his noble effort to keep ajar the
"door of hope" by giving to all men,
irrespective of .color, "a square deal."
Curtis, the Roman, wrapping his
martial cloak about him, mounting his
horse and plunging into the gulf that
threatened the safety of Eternal Rome,
presented no nobler picture than does
Senator Foraker standing in his fdace
in the United States Senate contend
ing for a principle on which rests the
safety of his country.
