PEOPLE OP THE WEST.
The August World's Work a Noith
west number, devoted to an account
;>f the country which is now celebrat
ing the anniversary of the arrival of
Lewis and Clark. The following is
from an article describing the life of
"Life here has its own kinds of pro
vi-ioialism no doubt. It is ° long way

it is a long way also from the poiut of
view of New York, or Washington, or
Cbioago Yet there is a grateful re
lief also from the old prejudices and
from the provincialisms of the East
ern state?. The talk you hear in the
clubs iv New York, and Boston, and
Washington, and Chicago, seems very
looal and remote when you get to the
Pacfio ooast. Theie is local gossip aud
small talk a-plenty iv the clubs of
these Pacific cities; but here big sub
jects s o eiu larger. Y T ou begin to feel
that the United States is much larger
than it s«emed in New York. These
poaple have a way and without boast
ing of assuming that they and not
tha ejateru people are the masters of
things—that the ultimate American
judgement will be their judgement.
"It is difficult to say precisely how
they convey this impression. If you
talk about politics they frankly confess
that their politics are bad. Few men
of first rata ability or of highest char
acter have time to take an interest in
publio affairs. If you talk of com.
roeree, the commerce of the Pacific is
really yet to be developed. But they
do think iv large units. You will
hear them talk about the effect that
the Panama canal will have, as if the
oanal were ten miles from where you
are sitting. When they speak of going
south they mean a pleasure journey of
2.000 miles more or less to Southern
California. They talk familiarly of
tows and camps in Alaska, as if they
were a day's journey away. They talk
of going to New York or Chicago as if
they were contiguous cities. Perhaps
it is their large units of space that
give a sort of continental scope to their
"A better explanation is the wider
knowledge that men here have of
American geogiaphy and of American
life than most men in the Eastern
cities have. They all know eastern
life. Eastern men do nit all know
western life. Indeed almost every
body here came from the Eastern or
Middle states. Thus, a knowledge of
the whole United States is common
knowledge with them. But " know
ledge of the Pacific coast is not oom
mon in the Eastern or Middle states.
"Life in these cities, then, in spite
of Pacific provincialism, is mature and
broad—in some ways broader than
Amerian life elsewhere."

Paul Jones and the Experts.
Was it the real Paul Jones or a sub
stitute whose remains were passed
upon by a corps of experts In Paris
last April? Tom Watson's Magazine
contends that "French experts were
called to Identify a certain corpse as
that of Paul Jones aud solemnly pro
nounced a verdict which they knew
was expected." Tom Watson is the
author of a history of France and a
work on Napoleon 1., aud his Judgment
on the evidence presented in this mat
ter is of interest. He says:
The search for Paul Jones' body had
reached a crisis. Only four leaden coffins
had been found in the old graveyard, and
one of these had to be Paul Jones 1 , be
cause be had been buried In such a cof
fin, and the other three bore name plates
which showed they could not be his. The
fourth bore no name plate; therefore it
must be Jones' coffin. The necessity of
the situation required it. Consequently
polite French experts measure, compare.
Incubate, decide and bring in the verdict
Looking at the matter as a lawyer, I
should say that there is not sufficient le
gal evidence offered as yet to establish
the identity of the dead body. The ceme
tery in which Commodore Paul Jones was
buried was closed by law In 1793. A canal
was afterward cut through It. The great
sea fighter was buried, as Napoleon was.
in uniform. The body which General Por
ter has found was not clad in uniform.
There was ao sword or other article found
in the coffin.
Commodore Jones died of dropsy, which
had swollen his body to such an extent
that he could not button his waistcoat.
Yet the French experts declare that all
the measurements tally exactly with
those of the living Jones.
Most biographers put the height of Ad
miral Jones at "about five feet and eight
inches." Won't you find a greater num
ber of men—in France especially—whoso
height is "about five feet eight inches"
than you'll find at any other figure? And
will you not find more corpses of about
that length? Yet in these measurements
consists the whole of the testimony which
has been offered to the American people.'
Commenting upon this, the Baltimore
American says, "Mr. Watson can claim
to have distinguished company in his
unbelief, but when the most is said
by them all will be compelled to con
fess that General I'orter was on the
ground to examine the body and its
belongings and they were not." The
New York Sun declares that a medical
examination proved that the man
whose body was exhumed died of the
disease which caused the death of Paul
Jones and that the remains correspond
accurately to the authentic descrip
tions, portrait and measurements of
Japs Showing the Chinese How.
Europeans in the interior of China re
port that the Chinese people have been
stirred to a remarkable degree by the
Japanese victories over Russia. The
Chinese say that it is no wonder that
the Jnps won in the war with China
ten years ago and lay great stress
upon the western methods adopted by
Japan. What is good for Japan will
be good for China, it is argued. High
military officials of China recognize the
fact that under the old policy their
country will be left hopelessly behind
Japan aud at her mercy.
The imperial government of Chiua is
active in opening schools for instruc
tion in western learning aud science,
aud the people are iv line with the new
movement. The ferment is working
in every stratum of Chinese society.
There is a dearth of teachers qualified
to give instruction in western branches.
Many Japanese teachers are employed,
and military teachers brought from
Japan l>efore the war have not been re
called by the Japanese government, ev

ested in bringing the Chinese people up
The wizard Thomas A. Edison has
evolved, among other marvels, a novel
working philosophy. "Although I work
a good many hours a day," he said re
cently, "my life is very quiet and rest
ful. I do not worry. I am fond of
fun and of good fellows. Ido not want
to deal with men whose whole lives are
devoted to getting money." This is a
philosophy that will carry any man
beyond Dr. Osier's chloroforming limit,
and Edison at fifty-nine has the ardor
of youth and is looking for new sci
entific worlds to conquer.
