A UNIQUE EXPOSITION.
bMion of the Janientovrn Celebration
The greatest lesson of nil in the com
lnK celebration at Jamestown, Vn., in
(BtnmemoratlOD of (he throe? hundredth
annhorsary of America's first perma
nent white settlement will bo the let
»oii in American history, says Harper's
Weekly. It will be more thau anything
•lge v historical exposition. Even the
naval display will run Into history.
Alongside the modern men-of-war and
some of the latest types of modern
transatlantic passenger steamers there
will be anchored reproductions of all
craft made by man from the earliest
tges -triremes, such vessels as brought
the Jamestown settlers over In the sev
enteenth century, the caravels in which
Columbus and his followers crossed the
sea In the llfteeuth century, and so,
through the entire range of marine
American colonial history Is to be il
lustrated in every conceivable way by
collections, charts and maps of all
sorts. For that matter the country
about Hampton Roads for miles
around is strewn with the most im
pressive landmarks of our country's
history to be found anywhere within
an area of like size. The colonial era
Is represented by the old mansions of
the James, by many time stained
churches going back to the very days
of the Jamestown settlers. The cli
matic event of the Revolutionary war,
the surrender of Cornwallis, occurred
In Yorktown, only a few miles away,
where the old houses that were there
during the siege still stand. And then
there is Williamsburg, the second seat
of government, and Jamestown island
Itself, all close at hand. An electric
railroad to be constructed will link all
these places up with Norfolk and make
them In a way part of the historical
exhibit of the exposition itself.
Twelve Story Structure Dalit With
out Ilrtck, Beam or Timber.
An absolutely fireproof hotel twelve
stories high, built without a single
brick, ste^el beam, girder or column, is
Atlantic City's latest novelty, says a
dispatch from that city. The duplicate
Of this structure is not to be found any
For various reasons, one being that
the noise of erecting a steel frame
building would have driven away pat
rons from adjoining hotels, the builders
and architects were called upon for
plans by which It would be possible to
put up a structure 320 feet long and
100 feet high without the racket made
by steel riveters and stone workers.
The first exclusively hollow tile and
cement building on a large scale Is the
The necessity for keeping compara
tively quiet was only one trouble of the
builders, who at the very outset were
confronted with a foundation problem,
which was finally solved by driving
1,800 piles into the sand of the beach
by Jettylng. On this foundation a
frame of concrete uprights and girders,
strengthened with steel rods, was
raised. Next came the walls and floors,
all of fireproof hollow tile.
Outside the tile is pebble dashed, but
makes a handsome and substantial ap
pearance. Inside the plaster Is applied
directly to the tile. In the floors hollow
tile Is also used between re-enforced
cement, thus saving weight and mak
ing of the transverse as well as the
nprlght partitions so many fire bar
riers. Comparatively low cost, great
•aving In time and superior fireproof
qualities are claimed for this new style
Engineers and builders are deeply In
terested In the novel methods of con
struction, and experts have Inspected It.
Frlsen For Army Cooks.
General H. G. Sharpe, United States
commissary general of the army, has a
plan for giving prises to those who
make the best showing in competitions
In cooking and baking, says a Washing
ton special dispatch to the New York
Tribune. This Is done in foreign armies
with great benefit to the system of food
Preparation for armies In the field, and
General Sharpe believes it would stim
■late cooks and bakers to much better
work If they had the incentive of com
petition and a small prize which would
reward them for their skill. ' The
•cnools of cooking and baking at Fort
"ley, Kan., are being attended not
J«ly by the enlisted men who are se
lected for this sort of work, but In the
passes now are captains of the line as
*el as subsistence officers.They do
we actual cooking and- baking and
*«,"!. at first hand and under the most
Practical conditions the method of pre
inn* food. It is General Rharpe's

JJ™, class, and he believe it would be
***** well invested.
Duels and Pistols.
That a German army officer Bhonld
be cashiered for refusing to fight a
duel seems out of keeping with th«
spirit of the twentieth century, but tot
Imperial chancellor, Yon Bulow, Justl
flea the verdict as necessary In Ger
many at this time. The ehancelkn
says that the army "cannot tolerate
the presence of a man who Is onwUllnj
to take a wenpon in hand for the pur
pose of re-establlshlug his honor.'
There is room for two opinions as tc
Just how and where the honor come;-
In. It often happens that the duelis
kills the innn ho has wronged and it
point of fact thereby adds to his hi
famy. Then, too, where Me victor It
more skillful than his antagonist the
honor is of a piece with that of tlu
bully who whips a smaller fellow.
Looked at In every way, it seems thai
Germany Is behind the times in cling
ing to the duel and mixing up .-hivnlrj
and honor with out and out murder
Recently Colonel Jack China, who has
the reputation of a fighter of the old
southern school, came out with ji
speech for fair play in the matter ol
carrying weapons and incidentally con
demned dueling. The colonel said
that he had never carried a pistol in his
life and had never taken human life.
Once when called upon to second a
duelist he spoiled the tight by the ab
surd choice of axes for weapon! In a
ten foot ring. Colonel Chlnn said noth
ing about the bowie knife, which has
been supposed to figure In his encoun
ters. The sword is the German weap
on and perhaps for the reason that the
Irishman sticks to the shlllalah, be
cause it never misses fire. The pistol
means death, whereas with the sword
the honor may be satisfied with the
letting of blood. With a German a
scar from a sword cut is a mark of
honor. Tin? sword and the dueling field
are better than the concealed weapon
whipped out in a moment of excite
ment. It is hoped that Colonel Chinn'a
appeal to young men will bear fruit
and the concealed wenpon, whether
pistol or knife, be tabooed among de
cent men. Dueling ought to go, but
even that is nobler than a blow In the
So far as concerns decent and proper
social information the daily newspaper
of today fully treats the subject and,
in fact, exhausts the supply. There is
no legitimate field for the strictly "so
ciety" organ in this sphere, and the
result Is that journals which under
take to live on social patronage must
plunge into the scandal and gossli
which the more respectable press re
With the development of dally news
paper enterprise the distinctively "so
ciety" paper has In many cases fallen
Into disrepute, and men and women
who value their reputation do not care
to be seen reading it. The circle whose
doings and scandals it reports number
but a few hundred in the great cities
and ull over the country only a few
thousand. But the paper which de
votes Itself to social scandal has a wide
field for its industry. There are inci
dents in most large and wealthy fami
lies the publication of which would be
unwelcome to innocent parties involved
and equally pleasing to their enemies
and envious neighbors. Upon the vani
ty, envy and timidity of the few the
"society" editor plays to his profit,
printing stuff that decent newspaper
men turn from the sanctum doors every
Scorn for the claim that football
makes hardy cltlzeus reached Its cli
max iv this passage In a speech to the
alumni of the University of Pennsyl
vania by Ur. S. Weir Mitchell: "Alas
for the generation which ventured into
the war of the sixties without the
training of modern athletics! Let us
reflect with sorrow on how much moro
splendid might have been Round Top
or the fight at the Bloody Angle or at
the bridge at Antletam If Lee and
Grant had played football."
Onco again the Spanish-American
fracas Is made to parallel the great
civil conflict. It has produced a school
book war. The author of a new United
States school history omitted the Inci
dent of General Funstou's swimming
the Bagbag and excuses the extraor
dinary dereliction by saying that he
investigated the incident and found by
the testimony of eyewitnesses and ofH
clal war department records that Fun
stoii crossed the Bagbag on a bridge.
Here's another story Illustrative of
Ben Franklin's foresight and philosoph
ical reach of mind. Some one said of
his drawing the electricity from a
cloud with the kite, "But what Is the
use of It?" Franklin replied, "What Is
the use of a baby?"
It Is a decided compliment that the
peace societies of Italy pay to George
Washington by that movement to make
the birthday of the Father of His Coun
try a holiday the world over for mani
festations In favor of peace.
It must be discouraging for the
proud father of a budding American
admiral to havo him dismissed from
the Naval academy for hazing. There
will be no warm welcome at home for
that sort of prodigal.
How Senator Warner Had the
Laugh on Secretary Taft.

Hamilton I.ml» on Illmaelf — Rep
resentative Wnoli lit on Fauci,
An incident In connection with the
visit of W. 11. Taft, secretary of war,
to Kansas City last November camv
out in a reception at Washington re
cently, says the Kansas City Star. Sec
retary Taft, who Is a friend of Senator
Warner, was chuffing the senator about
Ills state and his role as the "mysteri
ous stranger" lv Washington. Senator
Warner took It good naturedly, and
when the laugh had subsided some
what he said:
"That Is good, Mr. Secretary. You
are here at home and surrouuded by
your official family and have their pro
tection, but I can recall a time when
you were not so chipper."
Secretary Taft Joined In the laugh
that followed, and ho told the story
himself. "You see," he said, "I went
out to Kansas City as the guest of the
Commercial clQb. They aserfgned me to
Senator Warner, and he was my escort
during my stay there. They treated
me quite handsomely out there, and
Senator Warner and I rode In a car
riage side by side through the streets
of the city. I remarked repeatedly to
the senator on the enthusiastic recep
tion 1 was receiving, and he laughingly
said, 'Never mind, part of It Is Intended
for mo,' moaning jokingly and good na
turedly to reduce my bump of self es
"But unfortunately for me just at
that moment a tall man on the curb
close beside the carriage was hoard to
say, 'That's him—that's him sitting in
the carriage beside that Hg fat man.'
You bet that Senator Warner had the
Inagb on me."
The publication In various newspa
pers lately of the fact that Speaker
Cannon had donned a homespun suit
resulted the other day In the appear
ance in the speaker's room of Repre
sentative Aiken of South Carolina, He
bad n package In his hand, says the
New York Times.
"Mr. Bpeaker," said he, "a constitu
ent of mine down In Abbeville lias road
about your homespun suit, and ho baa
sent me a pair of homemade galluses
to go with them. I am requested to
present them to you."
The speaker opened the paeknge.
They Were "galluses" all right. The ef
fete eastern word "suspenders" -was
((tally out of place. They were made
of white yarn nnd were the oddest
looking pair of braces seen In Wash
ington slnoe Andrew Jackson's day.
"Are you going to wear them?"
naked Aiken after the speaker had ex
pressed his thanks.
"Wear 'em?" echoed the speaker.
"Well, I should say ko, nnd It -won't be
anything new either. They're just the
kind 1 wore when I was n boy."
There woe melody on the house side
of the capltol the other afternoon, says
the Washington correspondent of the
Kansas City Times. Up through an ele
vator abaft came the strains of n song,
"They say that she Is false, but I still
believe her true." The song was ren
dered as a duet and with powerful ef
fect. The voices were n tenor and a
The policeman who stands at that
elevator has no music In him. At the
first note his eyes assumed a startled
expression, then his face hardened. The
proceedings of the national legislature
were not to be Interrupted by singing
ns long as he had authority to make
arrests for disorderly conduct. "Cut It
out!" he yelled down the shaft at the
approaching elevator. When the eleva
tor reached the landing the warl.lers
proved to be Representative Hamilton,
Chairman of the committee on territo
ries, and the elevator man. Hamilton
was the baritone. The policeman said
The drought In railroad passes has
been the subject of much cloakroom
lamentation since the first of the year,
says the New York Times' Washington
representative. The other day .several
congressional Jerenilnhs were lifting
up their voices on the topic when Rep
resentative Wachter of Maryland hap
pened along. "Oh, pshaw!" said he
cheerily. "That doesn't jar me a bit I
have thought over this proposition for
a long time and have become convinced
that it Is wrong to travel on ■ pans.
Why, so firmly convinced did I become
that on Jan. 1 I returned my annual
pass to the road." Aitf Mr. Wacbter
paired on with a pale halo fluttering
faintly around his head.
James Hamilton Lewis called recent
ly at the White House and told a Htory
on himself, says the Washington corre
spondent of tbe Kansas City Times.
When he arrived at the railroad sta
tion In Washington he met Speaker
Cannon, and the two men walked down
the platform together. One of the ue
jfro Pullman porters rushed up to the
two men and, totally Ignoring the
■peaker, said to Mr. Lewis, "We 'mem
bers you very well and often talks
about yer." Mr. Lewis said to the
speaker that It was gratifying to be re
membered by the bumble and then
turned to the negro porter and asked,
"Who are you?" "I's Ited Cap Jim,"
replied the porter. "Well, what do yon
gay about me?" Inquired Mr. Lewis.
