Prof. Hugo Jlunsterberg. the cele

"Certainly the Kuiopean masse- know
more about President Roosevelt, but the
leaders of European thought have con--ideied
President Eliot for years as the
greatest and mo-t important American.
They felt that hi- widom and idealism,
his strength and judgment were the de
ciding foice- for real progress in the
intellectual life of this country."

a resume of his message, an appeal to
imperialism of the higher tvpe. Ik-
said in part:
'"There is one remark I have often
heard from Canadians, not from Eng-li-hmen,
and that is that the public
life in Canada is unattractive because
there are no big i-siies. That seems
to me to be an extraordinary point
of view. Xo big i-suesl The next
years arc going to determine whether
Canada will remain a part of the Brit-i-h
"The decision of that question rests
with Canadians alone. Xo external
compulsion could be, certainly none
ever would be exercised to inlluence it.
It rests with them alone the decision
of that question, and with that ciues-
tion perhaps the decision of the fate
of the empire as a whole. Even in its
badly organized condition the empire is
the greatest political entity in the
world; properly organized, it would be
the greatest power.
"It lies with all parts of the empire,
and especially with the people of the
younger dominions to decide whether it
shall be capable of discharging its great
mi-sion in the world."

all on board perished.

Polk Miller of Virginia, famed as one
of the foremost entertainers on the Am
erican stage, will come to Columbia
next Monday evening with his quartet
of negro singers from the tobacco fac
tories of Richmond.
Mr. Miller's recitations and sketches
are full of touches which mark his
familiarity with the southern negro.
and the quartet he has selected to ac
company him is composed, not of min
strels in dress shirts ami oronmn
clothes, tbttt of four real '-darkeys,"
with melodious untrained voices, who
sing as the negroes of the south sang.
The value of the entertainment, accord
ing to those who have witnes-ed it, lies
in its naturalness and truth to south
The announcement that Mr. Miller
would come to Columbia was made
today as follows:
Of Sociological Value.
'Mr. Polk Miller, of Richmond, Va..
has consented to stop over in Columbia
on his way to Kansas City where he
is to give an entertainment before the
Commercial Club. Mr. Miller is a gen
tleman of rare gifts, perhaps the most
perfect master of negro dialect living,
and his character sketches of the old
time Virginia darky, besides affordins
a unique and enjoyable entertainment,
will be of special interest to the stu
dents of language as well as to the stu
dents of sociology. Where he is known,
he is sure to draw a large house. A
the University of Virginia last week
he had an audience of over 2,000. As
he is a stranger to many Columbians
we take pleasure in vouching for him
and promise to all who are fortunate
enough to hear him a delightful even
ing's entertainment. The University
Auditorium will doubtless be full to
overflowing. To vary the program he
brings with him his quartet of necro
singers not negro minstrels."
