7t i.s an amusing, as well as an in- i
us, view of the third term matter
which Senator Depew presents in hid
communication to his associate third
tenner, (Jon. Grosvenor.
Why not twelve years aa well as eight,
for the duration of .... esidential term?
Are a .- intelligent and devoted
to liberty as are tho American people to
be geared off by such a bogey? And
again: Suppose that there arose such a
condition <>f affairs as that, finding an
other Abraham Lincoln In the White
house, it became prudent to retain him
In Office for a UUrd term what Colly it
would l>e t>i east him asid< ?
These are the specious arguments
Which will always be advanced by the
must skillful of the adherents of the third
term. They are in spirit f.nd principle
the arguments most frequently heard in
sustainment of the new imperialism.
They appeal to intelligent men when any
suggestion of force or pressing necessity
would arouse their fears and sus
When Gen. Grant was being put for
ward for a third t<>rm by Conkling and
his followers he was known to have
previously written a letter in which he
declared that he had taken a first term
unwillingly and the second term still
more unwillingly while a third term he
regarded with utter aversion. This
avowal did nut deter his friends. Neither
did it occasion any declaration of hos
tility on his part while his political for
tunes hung in the balance in the nomi
Senator Depew knows that the third
term business is far from ended, even
for the present The letter of the presi
dent may operate to deter the more faint
hearted of the administration politicians.
But may there not be found men
strong enough among his admirers to
overcome his scruples expressed or enter
tained? Is he a man of as great caliber
as Grant? Is there anything in his career
from the ;>->rie.d when he permitted
llanna and the others to pay his debts
and relieve him from bankruptcy, to his
repudiation of his own sentiments re
garding the Philippines and Porto Rico,
to lead anyone to believe that he cannot
be diverted from any opinion or purpose
of his own?
What is ihere to prevent those among
his trust keepers who have control of
the imperialist press from inaugurating
a campaign of laudation which will im
pose him on the unsuspecting adherents
of his own party as another Lincoln,
and calling into existence such conditions
as will had good men to believe that
there is a vital need that he be renomi
It i:; rill very well to laugh at or with
Senator Depew. Ills capacity to crack a
joke has caused him of late yearsjto be
taken less seriously than a tnan of his
grand attainments and notable achieve
ments should bo- taken. In his third term
business he remains the only courageous
and consistent imperialist of them all,
and it will be queer if his reward is not
forthcoming, long before the expiration of
the next three years in the general ac
ceptance of his views by the responsible
leadership of the Imperialists.
THE RISH FOSt LA3D.
Ever since that ancient day when our
old friend, Adam, and his estimable help
meet, Eve, sojourned in the Garden of
Eden there has been in the human breast
a consuming desire to possess that which
Is forbidden. The consequences which
were visited upon the heafls of the afore
mentioned pair by reason of the appro
priation of the apple, has served only to
intensify this hunger for forbidden fruit.
As a part of the eminently just and
human? course which our government
has pursued toward the aboriginal tribes
of tins continent, there has been from
time to time certain lots and parcels of
land set aside for the especial and ex
clusive use of the Indians. Sometimes
t'nese parcels, called reservations, have
been located in beautiful river valleys or
about sparkling inland lakes where game
nnd fish abound, sometimes they have
embraced barren hills and rugged moun
tains, level grasslcss plains and sun
baked Jccks. All the same, to these for
bidden tracts the eyes of the would-be
settlers have ever turned with a longing
that could be appeased ouly by actual
possession. One by one these reserva
tions have been opened to the exploitation
of the white man. The few tracts that
are now in the possession of the Indians
nre eagerly watched and the time when
they also shall be thrown open is antici
pated with the nervous fervor of an ar
dent lover waiting for his expected bride.
We have, scattered along our frontier,
c. sort of advance guard of civilization;
a distinct people who combine the roving
char of the gypsy with the
dare-devil disposition of the Indian scout
"f the middle of the nineteenth century.
He- would rather move than become rich
by .staying in one place five years. With
a pair of horses, a. rickety wagon and his
wife and brood of children, he hovers
about the boundaries of the forbidden ter
ritory waiting for the signal gun to an
nounce its opening for settlement. He
takes his claim and keeps it only long
enough to sell it to a less forehanded set
tler, packs his wagon, shoulders his gun
and starts for another field.
The territory of Oklahoma is the scene
of a gathering of seme 20,000 people
waiting for the opening of the Kiowat-
Comart^fli(vApache reservation. And they
will remain there and suffer all the
privations of famine rathfr than give up
tin fun of being the first settlers of a
new country. The ma<d rush attending
the opening of Oklahoma and the Cher
oki c .strip will not be repeated this time.
Not because the would-be settlers are
loth to make the race, but on account
of a rule of the interior department
which will make a race for any particu
lar land unnecessary. Those making ap
plication ior lands in these reservations
are given a number. At the opening day
the land (;ftice diaws by lot these num
bers and the holders are given the priv
ilege of selecting from the land left the
piece which best suits them. By this
means the quarrels between squatters
v» iil be wholly avoided and the race will
not be to the swift alone, but to the

would remain a wilderness, haunts of
the gray wolf, the coyote and the prairie
dog. They blaze the way for others to
follow and remain. But what is their
WHO ARE TO BLAME?
There can be no doubt as to the depth
and intensity of the public feeling aroused
by the Quay franchise grab in Philadel
phia. Quay has for many years been
recognized as the living incarnation of
corruption in American public life. With
that other distinguished Republican lead
er, Thomas C. Platt, he Is the survivor
of the corrupt bossism which, in locali
ties, was much more prevalent twenty
five years ago than it is today. His exe
cution of this act of wholesale public
plunder was, no doubt, in his own estima
tion a most commonplace transaction. It
is altogether improbable that the public
excitement and condemnation which has
attended it will give him an hour's con
sideration. He has proven himself in
vulnerable, so far as relates to the pun
ishment which the law says shall be
meted out to criminals like him, and no
dcubt Hie proceeds of this single steal
would cilice, even if he had no other rev
enues, to save him against adversity dur
ing the balance of his days.
The American public find themselves
practically helpless in the presence of
such giant scoundrelism. The ordinary
citizen has observed transactions of this
general character in operation regularly
all through his life. He has seen that it
is net the known plunderer who reaps all
the pecuniary advantage, or even the
greater share of that advantage. Men
of recognized high standing in business
circles are usually behind such trans
actions, and the ultimate beneficiary
almost invariably takes the form of a!
corporation, the majority of whose stock
is in the hands of reputable persons.
Since it is thus shown to be impos
sible to reach those who benefit by such
transactions, It is not surprising that
the people should look in other direc
tions for their remedy. They are doing
so in. this case of the latest plundering
transaction of Quay.
The impetus which the movement in
favor of municipal ownership has de
rived from this particular steal is not
to be denied or overlooked. Ten years
ago municipal ownership was rarely
heard of in this country. Five years
ago or less it began to be discussed.
From time to time some more than
ordinarily outrageous act of public plun
der or oppression by a public service
corporation has caused intelligent men
to stop and ask each other whether the
people themselves should not do what
these corporations do with so much of
scandal and waste.
The men who united v.ith Quay in the
Philadelphia street railway franchise
steal are morally more responsible than
he. It is they and such as they who
have to bear the cost of such transac
tions finally. If they and such as they
feel aggrieved at the growth of the pub
lic sentiment which demands the own
ership and control of public facilities by
the public themselves, they must not
forget that they have themselves most
ly to- blame for its existence.
AX RiVllli A\D ITS nEMEDV.
A subject which is growing daily in
public interest is the wisdom and neces
sity of establishing uniform state laws.
Many efforts have been put forward to
bring about this result, and the move
ment still continues. It assumes two
fold form. The National Divorce Reform
League concerns itself entirely in bring
ing about uniformity in divorce legisla
tion in the several states; while, on the
other hand, there is the National Confer
ence of Commissioners on Uniform State
Laws. This latter body is made up of
commissioners appointed in the different
states and organizing themselves into a
national body for the advancement of
the principle of uniform laws. They are
usually appointed for five years, with au
thority to confer with like commissioners
appointed from other states, and to rec
ommend forms of measures intended to '
bring about uniformity in the execution
and proof of deeds and wills, and in the
laws relating to bills and notes, marri
age and divorce and other such subjects
where uniformity seems desirable and
It cannot be said that much advance
ment has been, made in the direction, in
dicated thus far; and the suggestion is
being heard very generally that the
movement should take into serious con-,
sideration the plan of appealing to con
gress, so as to get a constitutional
amendment which would facilitate the re
The time has apparently come when the
i TTHE^S'T. PAUL GLOBE, MONDAY, JUNE 24, 1901,
idea of investing the general government
with control over matters of purely do
mestic concern to the citizens of the sev
eral states is to be seriously regarded.
The tendency of our times is running
strongly in that direction, and the efforts
of those who would maintain at all haz
ards the autonomy of the several states
in all that relates to the immediate in
terests of their people have become ma
terially weakened. For almost every dif
ficulty arising out of the diversity of so
cial institutions existing in the several
states the remedy is heard of an amend
ment to the federal constitution. In the
matter of divorce alone, the best judges
of the evils growing out of the chaotic
condition of our state divorce laws in
sist that no substantial advancement can
be made until the plan of reform through
the federal authority is seriously consid
In. spite of all that is advanced in this
direction, more conservative public opin
ion will be found insisting that no re
course shall be had in matters of purely
state domestic concern to the
federal power. The suggestion of
such action must be based on
an entire disregard of a fundamental
principle in American constitutional gov
ernment. The wisdom of suffering the
ills we have rather than flying to those
that we know not of may well be in
voked in connection with the prevailing
tendency to rush to congress for relief in
The need of uniformity in certain lines
of state legislation is universally recog
nized. But all that can be done in that
behalf for many years to come, and, in
deed, all that should be done, can be ef
fected through the action of the several
states. If all the states could unite in
the appointing of commissions on uni
formity in legislation" the worst evils
complained of might he remedied. The
last conference held of such bodies had
representatives from the states of Cali
fornia, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia.
Maine, Maryland, New York, New Jersey,
Indiana, Rhode Island, Virginia and Illi
nois. Thirty state in all and two terri
tories have established such commissions,
although under such laws in some cases
appointments have not been made or
Encouragement should be given to this
movement of the appointment of uni
form law commissions. In the direction
of commercial and criminal law and in
the regulation of marriage and divorce
the greatest good could be accomplished.
Indeed much good has already been done
in securing uniformity in laws relating
to negotiable instruments through the de
liberations of the commissioners now
acting under state laws.
If those who are convinced of the neces
sity of reform in the laws of marriage
and divorce would unite in securing tho
appointment of commissioners in those
states in which there are none, it would
not be long until substantial results
would be produced. Minnesota is not
among the states which has such com
missioners. Until we take our place in
the movement there can be no reasonable
expectation of an intelligent or at all ad
equate remedy for the recognized evils of
our divorce system.

poor a part in the role of Jailer as he

interested some surprise that the world

"The Three Mrcs-keteers" at the Met
For the first time in their St. Paul
engagement the members of the Cri
terion Stock company doffed fin de siecle
attire for .the velvet, wigs and patches
of earlier times. With their modern
clothes the majority of them dropped
also their modfern manners and became
as much a part of the French Louis
XIII. period as their courtesies and their
"The Three Musketeers," which they
presented last night, is a very active
play. It's the sort, too, that appeals to
every class of theatergoer, and surely
every class must naive been represented
in last night's large audience. Not the
least of the play's attractions is its
hero. A handsome, penniless, devil-may
care fellow who makes love to all
women and is ready to fight any man—
such a character at D'Artagnan. Robert
Drouet fitted neatly into the role, giv-
ingr another proof of his surprising ver
satility. The swashbuckling air, the
good humored effrontery and the shrewd
bravery that are the chief characteris
tics of D'Artagnan were faithfully pre
sented, not caricatured, by the player.
There are fewer rough edges about a
first night presentation of a role by Mr.
Drouet than about that by any other
member of tlhe' company. He received
numerous curtain ' calls last evening.
Scant courtesy is paid in "The Three
Musketeers" to the character of Rich
elieu. Whatever the great cardinal's
faults he was "not' a cringing trickster,
but this is what the playwright has
made him. Victor de Silke gave a very
fair presentation pf the character last
evening. Occasionally he dropped the
role and was just Mr. Silke, but on the
whole his portrayal was satisfactory.
Harry Burkhardt as Louis 111. and
George Irving as the DuKe of Bucking
ham played well the minor roles in
trusted to them. As Athos, one of the
three musketeers, Mr. Irving was also
satisfactory- Wlllard Hutchinson as
Aremis, another of the musketeers,
made the most __of the single opportunity
his role afforded him to show his ability
as a player. Robert Folso-m was excel
lent as Porthos.
The women were decidedly in the
background last evening, the stage being
given over almost entirely to the men.
Miss Countiss as Anne of Austria
played the part with dignity. The only
thing that marred her presentation of
the character of the queen was a slight
unreadiness with her lines, noticeable, es
pecially, in the first act. Miss Buckley
was a charming Constance. She haa
played with finish and spirit the rather
small parts heretofore assigned her in
the plays presented by the stock com
pany and her appearance in something
more ambitious cannot fail to raise
pleasurable expectations. Kate JacKson
was satisfactory as Lady de Winter, but
this actress appears to better advantage
in character roles.
Brock Beckwith, a' St. Paul man,
played last night the part of De Tre
ville. He filled the rather small role ac
ceptably. Mr. Beckwith has a fine voice,
a good presence and plenty of intelli
gence, surely enough good points to win

exhibitions of rough riding by cowboys,
Mexicans, South American gauchos and
cavalry of all nations. A special feature
is a juvenile wild West in which Indian.

CHAIRMAN JOKES' VIEWS. I
"Whatever congress does during its
session next winter In the direction of
establishing a government for the Philip
pines, its further treatment of Cuba and
Porto Rico and its attitude on the grow
ing demand for tariff reform and for the
building of the Nicaragua canal, these
things will furnish the issue of the con
gressional campaign In liK)2. and, per
haps, for the presidential campaign, two
Senator James K. Jones, of Arkansas,
chairman of the Democratic national
committee, made this statement to Hie
Washington correspondent of the Chron
icle this afternoon.
"If the supreme court decided any
thing," said Senator Jones, "it decided
that congress has undoubted authority
to legislate for our island possessions.
That right being established beyond per
adventure, the Republican majority of
congress cannot longer escape the re
sponsibility of providing a government
for the Philippines. The character of the
government that will be extended to t"no
inhabitants of tha islands will determine
one of the most important issues of the
next campaign. The whole insular policy
of the Republican party will be more
nearly on trial than it was last year when
that issue was partly obscured by condi
tions that made President McKinley's
"The people were enjoying prosperity
after years of depression, and as they be
lieved McKinley was responsible for their
good times they decided to vote for him
regardless of governmental policies. The
question of good times will not enter so
largely into the next campaign. The
voter will stop to examine the McKinley
insular policy and will determine in his
own mind whether he likes it or not.
Our future attitude toward Cuba will
have a great deal to do with settling the
issues. The president will attempt to
play a shrewd part In dealing with this
island. While pretending to. give the
Cubans a free hand he will in reality cir
cumscribe their powers and leave them
almost completely subject to the govern
ment :in Washington, All of the signs
point that way now.
"I do not telteve that anybody who is
familiar with the history of the Repub
lican paTty In congress," Senator Jones
went on, "entertains the notion for an
instant that there will be a serioua at
tempt to reform the tariff. Some Repub
licans may entertain the -ueai that it
would be wise for the party to heed the
warnings that are being sounded daily
by the business men of the country, but
they will be powerless to force the com
mittees to act. The reciprocity treaties
will remain as they are at. present, un
acted upon, when the Fifty-seventh con

PRKVEXTIVES OP ALCOHOLISM.
In discussing the best means of pre
venting alcoholism at the recent anti
alcohol congress at Vienna, Dr. Burtsch
er, of Berne, laid great stress on the
importance of an abundant, inexpensive
food supply for the poorer classes. He
state-i that the consumption of liquors
is most prevalent and the effect worst
among the most poorly nourished people
of Europe. The excessive use of alcohol
is not so frequently the cause of poorly
developed and nourished bodies, as Is
imperfect nourishment the cause o>? an
abnormal craving for liquors. The ef
fects of alcohol are also decidedly worse
among the badly nourished. Drunken
ness, delirium tremens and mental dis
eases are uncommon among the well
nourished people of Germany as com
pared with the condition among the bad
ly nourished Poles and Irish. Temper
ance societies, tracts, cures and institu
tions for the treatment of drunkenness
•will all prove of little avail as long as
the poor are unable to obtain food to
nourish themselves sufficiently well to
prevent abnormal craving for stimulants.
The shortsighted policy of the Agrarian
party in striving to prevent the im-
Cleary in all good qualities, and on whom
the Republicans of thiis district could
unite as their representative. I would
give $1,000 to help nominate and elect
him. I shook hands with him today just
as he was taking the train to Redwood
Falls. He is a man of destiny and ono
I would like to see go after the Repub
lican nomination for congress and get it,
and you ought to all feel proud of him."
"While there is a manifest opposition fo
Congressman McCleary in his Second dis
trict, the latter does not seem to be much
concerned about his nomination next
year. He is evidently paying less atten
tion to the matter than those who are
working to accomplish his overthrow and
secure the nomination of State Senator
Scmerville, to whom the above statement
has reference. It probably would be a
good thing for the Democrats of the Sec
ond district if the Republicans would
name somebody beside McCleary, for then
there would be more chance for a Demo
cratic congressman down then;. con
gressman McC!eary'3 last election was
obtailned, it will be remembered, by the
largest plurality given to any congres
sional candidate in the state.
Apparently there is a growing demand
on the part of country Republican
editors to do away with the "press
bureau and its abominable ready marie
editorials, and have the men who con
duct the papers do thoir own writing
during the campaign, as well as the
period intervening. This demand is due,
r.o doubt, to the constituency of the vari
ous papers which have allowed them
selves to indulge In this wholesale pros
titution of their editorial columns. The
character of these "ready mades" is
enough to disgust any man. no matter
how strong a partisan he may be.

Proper nourishment Is certainly as im
portant in preventing diseise as in pre
venting alcoholism. This is specially
true as regards the prevention of tuber
culosis. In our own country no difficulty
exists as 'to the possibility of procuring
an abundance of nourishing food, for so
great are our resources of food supply
that even our poorest classes eat at least
twice a$ mqch meat ;-'.s tin- most for
tunate people of the same standing m
most foreign countries. There is n^ lack
of badly-nourished people among us,
however, and I hey are not found among
the poor alone. With us the fault lies
more in the preparation than in the qual
ity and abundance o-f food. Sloppy
scups, greasy, indigestible fried meats,
fried esgs, fried fish, fried potatoes, In
fact every food possible fried and
ftreasy; soggy hot bread and eivkes, and
unwholesome pastry lacking in food
value, are the common foods of not only
the poor, but many of the better classes.
Cooking Is now taught in many of our
public schools and institutions aj well
as in private classes. Let us hope that
this will promote much needed reform

petising food may be prepared, help to

BOYS WHO WON'T SIT WITH GIRLS. I
New York World.
In the country school of old the boy of ;
bashful age was sometimes sent for i.urt ■ I
ishment to sit among the girls. If Ilia
blushes were of the genuine sort the pen ■
alty never failed of its end. The merry
lasses who surrounded the offender could
be trusted, In mischevous impulse, to
mete out torture to the full for the self
! conscious sufferer.
It was believed that the day of this
disciplinary resort had past d. There has
been a suspicion that the bashful hoy
had been eliminated by our "advanced
j civilization." But now it seems that this ,
' latter proposition at least may not bo
true. For what can it be but bashfulnesj!
which has stirred the senior and Junior
young men of Wesleyan university to a L
fierce resolve neither to sit with the fair .
"co-eds" of their classes nor to conduct
class-day exercises with them?
To be sure. Uncle Sam has ofl'.cially i
pronounced girls better student", than
boys. But we refuse lo attribute jealousy
to the Wesleyan lads. The theory of
bashfulness Is preferred. We therefore
conjure the resolvera to think better of
I their resolve—to sit serenely amen 4 tho •
I girls and to be surprised at how quickly
they will be happy. Girls have moie
mercy and sympathy, as well as quicker
powers of learning. They will not be
too severe on repentant male seniors and j
juniors. And It la wise to reflect that i
they cannot be barred out of college : y j

OVIt TOBACCO CROP.
There are in the United States 700,000
acres of land devoted to tbacco, of
which I1,(.n) acres are in New England.
The annual yield of all kinds in the coun
try is 500.000/00 pound,-, of which N- W
England raises about 19,000,00. The aver
age yield per acre throughout th? coun
try is 700 rounds, but in N-w England
it is 1.700 pounds. It is interesting that all
the tobacco raised in th • country be
longs to two or three botanical species,
yet there are more than sixty varieties
grown commercially—a'l of th» m Quite
distinct in shape, color and quality of
leaf. The raising and curing of ra h
class and type of tobacco is a business
by itself; in its methods of culture, har
vesting and curing as distinct from the
others as the business of a cream-ry is
distinct from that of a cheese factory.
