"I am not ono of those who beliovc
that tho success of tho democratic
party in tho next presidential election
doponds upon tho nomination of any
ono man. 1 do not subscribe to tho
doctrine that tho Democratic nartv
snoum oo orpnancu in caso ono or oven
two men should die. I nm not an
idolatrous admirer of Mr. Bryan or in
deed of any other leader of tho party.
What is more, I do not agree with and
cannot bo induced to concur in Mr.
Bryan's views regarding governmental
ownership of railways and other public
utilities. I believe, howovcr, that al
though our party is plentiful in men of
presidential caliber, Mr. Bryan is now
easily in tho lead for tho nomination,
and that unless conditions greatly
change ho will be the most nvailablo
man' that can bo nominated and the
ono that would most likely bo elected.
"All democrats have tho right to ox
press their opinion on this question, but
when theso gentlemen in Alabama who
profess and call th'emselves democrats
link their opposition to Mr. Bryan with
tho avowed opposition to tariff rovision
it seems to mo it is high time that tho
rank nnd filo of tho party, not to speak
of tho leaders, record their emphntic
protest. Tariff rovision or tariff reform
has been the rallying cry of tho demo
cratic, party for tho past forty years.
Upon that issue wo elected in 1881
and ro-electcd in J892 tho onlv demo
cratic president choson sinco 1850.
Thero is, in my judgment, greater and
more immediate need lor tariff revision
now than at any other period of our his-
tory. 'iruo democrats recognize this
and are determined to mako a concert
ed nnd united effort to relievo the
people of the increasing burden of un
iust taxation imposed upon them by tho
Dingley tariff. It will not escapo tho
attention of democrats that this latest
opposition to Mr. Bryan and to tariff
reform, of which ho is an eloquent and
logienl advocate, is voiced from tho
center of the coal and iron industry of
Alnbama nnd at a timo when that in
dustry has but recently passed into
tho coutrol of tho steol trust, a cor
poration that is ono of tho greatest
beneficiaries of tho Dingley tariff rates.
Governments Tako Great Fains to Kcop
Thorn From Leaking Out.
i' , ., . i
Perhaps tho most difficult secret to
kcop is ono relating to any now gun
or other weapon of war. Thero is prnc
tically no such thing ns secrecy in, such
mattors. Almost before a government
miB settled upon a now weapon its do
tails aro known in every war office in
Europe. Our now nnyal quick-firer, for
instance. Spies tttolo tho documents re
lating to it, and ,ovcry particular has
been for a year past in tho hands of
our chief rival.
When Mr. Louis Bronnan, of gyros
cope railway fame, first invented' the
torpedo which bears Ids name, our gov
ernment paid 120,000 for his inven
tion. Tho most extraordinary precau
tions wcro taken to prevent the details
of tho now torpedo from becoming
public property. Each portion of the
machine was made in a separate shop,
and the workmen woro searched both
on entering and leaving tho shop.
Tho various parts of each torpedo
were assembled by Mr. Brennan and
his pnrtnor. Yot, oven so, it is' fairly
certain that foreign powers wcro not
very long in ignorance of tho special
secret of tho torpedo.
Thero is ono thing which has to bo
successfully guarded. That is tho pro
visions of a secret treaty. Such a
treaty is usually in print before tho
most alert roportcr has nosed out its
existence. The precautions ob.crvcd
are mainly those of employing a vory
largo number of printers, who each sot
up "a few lines only, Over 200 men
were employed in printing our original
secret treaty with Japan.
Undoubtedly Gcrmnny nkes moro
pains to preserve her military secrets
than does any other great power, nnd
is moro successful in doing to. About
thrco years ago an American manufac
turer' of gun cartridges was requested
to givo an oxpert opinion upon a certain
cartridge making mnchino which the
German government thought of purchas
ing. Accustomed to tho comparatively
free and easy methods of British and
American nnvy, yards and arsenals, he
was much nmnzed at being met at tho
gate by a strong gunrd.
He was then blindfolded and led
through various passages to a little
room whero the machine stood. Tho
guard never left him, and before ho
went nwuy ho was again blindfolded
and led out by hand.
Such precautions arc almost unknown
in other countries.
Wo have all heard of tho great Lord
Dundonald's famous "secret war
plan," which at tho timo of tho Cri
mean war, would, it was said, annihilate
Cronstndt nnd Sevastopol, in four hours,
but which was condomncd by a com
mittee as "inhuman though infallible,"
Quito recently an Australian hat
made a remarkablo invention, evidently
it a similar naturo to that of Lord
Dundonald's', for a competent oxpert
ans said that It would turn tho balance
in a war between two powers of equal
(trcngth. Seldom, if ever, liavo such
precautions been used to preserve sec
recy. Only four persons tho Inventor, the
war office expert, and two others
enow tho details of the appliance, and
every plan or model was destroyed be
foro the inventor left for London. Bc-
'ore ho sailed the most stringent con
ditions-were imposed upon him. Ho was
not to smoke cigars, drink alcohol, ven
ture on deck after dark, or speak to
a stranger, especially a Jndy.
That these precautions were not un
warranted Is proved by tho fact that
no fewer than fivo secret agents of
foreign powers were shadowed by the
Sydney police, and that decoy plans
and sketches- placed in a private safo
were mysteriously stolen.
Tho Australian inventor was mot at
Plymouth nnd taken straight to Lon
don and Lord Roberts. Wo may expect
to hear moro of his invention whenovor
the next war breaks out. Pearson's

From tho westorn grain areas and

It is common enough nowadays to
hear people remark that tho government
is curuuuiy going 10 nuiiu mo canal;
and that tho work is going ahead rapid
ly and well; but that tho cost will bo
"out of sight," "because government
work is always so costly, you know!"
Whilo it is too soon yet to say what
unit priccs will be reached for tho
bulk of tho work, when tho whole plant
is in placo and tho operating force is
"tuned up," the figures for cost of
excavation in the Culcbrn cut for tho
past year aro certainly interesting. It
appears that tho average cost of ex
cavating about 5,500,000 cubic yards,
three-fifths of it rock, hauling it some
ten miles by train, and distributing it
op tho dumps, -was 82V cents por cubic
yard, which figuro includes an arbi
trary nllowanco of 12 cents per cubic
ynrd for tho cost of tho plant used.
Homombering tho tropicnl conditions.
tho reavy rainfall, tho eight-hour day,
thp high cost of labor, fuel, materials,
and everything elso, this indicates that
thoy aro not only "making tho dirt
fly" at Panama, but making a dollar
do tho most work possible which has
been sot down by high authority as a
proper function of tho cnginocr.
Again, .in dredging work, we lenrn
that at La Boca, on tho Pacific end, an
old French ladder dredge excavated
during tho past year 1,213,000 cubic
yards, at an average cost per cubic
yard of about 10 1-3 cents, tho material
being towed out to sea in' hopper barges.
Certainly fieurcs like these deserve
consideration by thoso who mako rash
generalizations as to tho oxtravagauco
of government work. Engineering
