JOHN U. WARNER,
i NEWS FROM
Congress has adjourned for the
holidays and is devoting itself In a
vi'isatilH way, according to indivld
uil tastes, to the enjoyment ot Xuins
festivities. An unusually large con
tingent will remain in Washington.
This was not the way in days of
yore, when free railroad passes or
bribes were as thick as leaves In
Velambroae. Now let the various
constituencies of our niuety million
nation send members to Congress un-
tainted with Other insiduons bribery
and we will have still othor reforms
anihbt farther from the decline and
fall which historians say is inherent
in all nations.
The Cuban situation is exciting
much interest in political and official
ofe. President Taft Btopped in Cuba
on bis recent return from Panama.
Flo talked with representatives of
both factions. The President of
Cuba, it seems, wants to porpetaate
his presidency by reelection. Presi.
dent. Taft, perhaps, does not consider
hi unnatural, but the ways and
tricks of perpetuation in Cuba, in
Mexico, in Central America, in tact,
wherever Spanish precedents and
o lstoms prevail, are not according to
Arglo-Saxon ideals, although they
may find parallels in Anglo-Saxon
practice. Our grandmotherly inter
est in our Latin neighbors may yet
result in our giving them a I'nrto
Rioo or Philippine government under
the flag. There have been official
denials of early intervention in Cab
au affairs. Nevertheless, it is known
that the entire American battleship
fleet with twelve or fifteen hundred
marines aboard will be at -Guantan
anio early in January and it is said
that five thousand United States, sol
diers fully equipped can be landed in
Cuba in three days.
Notwithstanding this country has
the best fire fighting equipment In
the world, it each year loses more
than two hundred millions of dollars
hy fire. This is fonr or five times as
rtuch as la lost in all the European
countries. The president of one of
the fire Insurance companies has said
that if the loss by fire in this country
could be cut down to seventy five
millions a year, the saving would be
equivalent to adding a billion of dol
lars to the wealth of the eountry
every ten years. The conditions are
bid, but better than in farmer years,
for concrete and steel are to some ex
tent protecting oities from the holo
causts of former days.

further presidential aspiration and
he has named four candidates who in
the order given are, in his opinion,
eligible to the office. We have beard
of them before. They are Folk of
Missouri, Harmon of Ohio, Gaynor
of New York and Wilson of N. J.
The war soare so prominent two
weeks ago has been pretty effectual
ly smothered. Coining as it did on
the heels of Mr. Carnegie's ten-mi
lion donation to the cause of peace,
it had all the effect of contrast and
incongruity. The President, the
Secretary of War and Gen. Wood
have hastened to disclaim any anx
iety with reference to the safety of
t ie country. Militarists, and these
are quite numerous, are positive in
thoir ntuteiucnts that our condition is
one of defenselesness against the
warlike nation of the Orient, between
whioh aud our nearest shore there
are nearly CO0O miles of suit water.
It is glibly asserted that Japan can

much like that of England with rtf-1

that he hud planned half a dozen

MILFORD BASE BALL.
The last isRue of the PRESS pub
lished a communication regarding
the necessity of supporting a Milford
base ball team eaoh season. The
writer made the assertion that with
out base ball Milford would be less
attractive to summer guests and the
summer business in this community
w mid materially suffer if the mer
chants and hotel and boarding house
keepers refuse to give their financial
support to Ihe seemingly one attrao
tion which will bring people from
the hot cities to this mountainous
and most delightful locality. If we
have no base ball wa will have no
summer guests and Milford willoease
to attract those who bring and spend
their money hero, says the writer of
this communication and the met.
chants and the hotel men will be lo
blame for the financial panic.
Iu the face of an indictment of
this nature, It may not he amiss to
enquire into the real situation regard
ing the Ixmefit of base ball to Milford
and to ascertain the real value of
tliis form of entertainment to the
community flnanoially and other
wise. Base base is a fine, manly sport
we will concede. It is entertaining
for summer guests, but does it pay?
That it iIiks not pay is admitted. At
least it has proven itself to be a fi
nancial failnro up to the present
time. Again, does base ball bring
people here who otherwise would not
visit this spot of natural attraction?
Base hall has not heretofore consti
tuted THE attraction of Milford and
is not responsible for the excellent
reputation this community bears as a
sun inier resort.
We are iulormed that nearly $1700
constituted the income ot the Base
Ball Club lust summer. This proved
insufficient to support the team aud
to pay all the expenses of landing
games. Tne previous season also
witnessed a deficit. Milford base
ball is a financial failure. Why bur
deu a town with an expense wiiioh It
cannot ufford? A few persona who
are interested in the game promote a
base ball team and expect other citi
zens to support their project. It Is
evident that the merchants, hotel
keecr8 aud citizens, cannot afford
the expense of a professional team
and it should not be forced upon the
community. The amount required
to be expended each season would
support one of our churches; it would
oil the Port Jervis road; it would
advertise Milford in a way which
would bring returns to the citizens
greater than ever, before, and so
many other necessary things to
make Milford attractions permanent
If, for example, this amount of inon
oy might be devoted to the activi
ties of the Field Club, more good
might result than from base ball.
Milford does not need base ball
like the cities. Milford is an out of
doors in itself. Nature has bound
fully supplied sufficient attractions
io this locality, Base bull is not a
necessity. It would be enjoyable
and acceptable, but has proven to be
too great a financial burden for so
small a community. If the income
of a business does not pay expenses,
that business must cease, If the
income from base ball does not meet
the necessary disbursements to sup
port it, then we might as well make
up our minds that we cannot supply
our summer guests with this form of
