NOT ONLY TRADE IN MIND
Nations of Old World Are Being
Compelled to Throw Off Sloth,
Red Tape and Old-Fashioned
Restraint of Enterprise.
CHICAGO, Fefb. 22.—The Union League
club tonight observed the anniversary
with a banquet to its members. The
guest of honor was Baron d'Estournelies
de Constant, member of the French house
of deputies, who spoke on the union of
France and America in the past and fu
ture. He said in part:
"America during the last fifty years
seems to have been metamorphosed as if
by the touch of a magnet. Fifty years
ago Europe flattered herself that she had
discovered America, .today she may con
tinue to flatter herself, but her satisfac
tion is not mixed with alarm. She is
proud of her discovery of America, but
she is alarmed at American discoveries.
Fifty years ago you were her customers,
today you have become her competitors.
You have increased your production,
both industrial and agricultural, in a few
years, to such a point that our European
markets are crowded with your mer
chandise, harvests, fruits, butters, tobac
co, machinery, engines. You have grown
so alarmingly quick during these fifty
years that it seems to me you are not so
very young as we think.
"Your marvelous progress, however,
ought to surprise no one in France. Good
blood cannot lie, and you have the best
tolood in Europe. Ignorant people call
you Anglo-Saxons, but you protest; you
know well that in your veins flows the
blood of the most energetic and enter
prising sons of the old world. No doubt,
you have English blood, but the English
themselves admit that the purest and the
best of their blood is Norman. You
have the blood of Holland, the name of
your president, Roosevelt, is Dutch; you
have the blood of Germany, Denmark,
Sweden, Norway, Italy, but how much
more have you the blood of France.
"Your progress may, perhaps, alarm
Europe, but not France, Guaranteed, as
we a**, by the inimitable specialty of
our productions, there is no real compe
tition possible between France and the
United States, and it is Europe, not
JTftince, that may be threatened by
American competition. And yet this need
not be an economic evil; it might become
a positive good, for your prog-ress will
oblige European nations to abandon their
old-fashioned ideas, their red i#pe, their
sterile antagonisms, in order to keep to
the level of your economical development.
or find themselves distanced in the race,
and thus the fear of American competi
tion may be the beginning of European
■wisdom. You will have rendered an in
estJmable service to humanity if that so
called "American peril" may be trans
formed into the "American cure." You
•will not confine yourselves to selling your
goods to Europe; you will give us your
example, the example of your energy,
and of your wisdom.
"We have tod»r, as much as ever,
a great role to perform. The brother

fruitful in the past; we can moke it still

BOTH mJST KEEP SILENT.
Fighting: Senators Cannot Speak Till
' Purged of Contempt.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 22,-The status
of Senators Tillman and McLaurin is
that they are still in contempt of the
senate, and only by a vote of the
senate can either be recognized either to
speak or to vote on any question what
ever. The senate is operating under a
clause of.section 5, article 1, of the con
stitution, which recites:
"Each house may determine the rules
of its proceedings, punish members for
disorderly behavior, and with the con
currence of two-thirds, expel a member."
The senate adopted a resolution declar
ing both Tillman and McLaurin in con
tempt. By a vote both were allowed to
make statements, in which both apolo
gized for- their actions. But the senate
took no further action and the resolu
tion referring the matter to the commit
tee on privileges and elections is still in
operation, and until the committee is
discharged or the senate relieves the
South Carolina senators of the contempt,
they must remain silent in the senate.
CATS SPREAD MICROBES.
That the microbe of the bubonic plague
has been carried across seas by rats on
board ships is a fact demonstrated by
science. It is also said to be demon
strable that malarial fever is dissemi
nated among the inhabitants of tropical
lands by the mosquito.
The cheerfully buzzing bluebottle fly
has been accused of conveying blood
poison from putrefying carcasses to hu
man beings, but it is not so generally
known that many of the diseases of hu
manity may be contracted by the favor
its of all our domestic animal friends,
the sleek and purring cat, and communi
cated through it to human beings.
In one locality in Canada, where a
quickly fatal type of diphtheria was
prevalent, the spread of the disease was
for a long time exceedingly puzzling to
those who engaged in fighting it. As the
community was widely scattered, and the
popular fear of the disease was very
great, it might appear to have been easy
to avoid contagion.
But day after day new cases appeared
in houses separated by long distances un
til a kind of panic set in, and most of
the tin infected families shut themselves
up in their houses and refused all com
munication with friends, strangers and
Still the diesease continued its ravages
with deadly effect until a clew was ac
cidentally given to a young woman who
called across the front garden from the
doorway of her home to a passing trav
eler to inquire about the diphtheria epi
demic. There was no other house with
in a mile or two, the road was little used,
and the family had so far escaped the
"It's as lonely as can be," the young
woman declared. "We go nowhere, and
nobody comes here. The only excitement
is over the cats, for old Jim is very sick
and little Manx tortoiseshell is dead.
We cannot think what in the world is
the matter with them."
The words came back to her friend as
he stood at the graveside two days later
and heard that the two lads of the house
hold were also in the grip of diphtheria.
Then a woman of means in a neighbor
ing house asked the advice of the local
practitioner respecting her Angora,
which had a sore throat. On general
principles he refused to have anything
to do with grimalkin, but advised doing
away with it at once.
Instead of following the advice the
woman vainly attempted to save her pet's
life by blowing sulphur down its throat.
The next day ohe developed diphtheria,
and within a week her baby was buried,
and she was fighting bertween life and
death, from which struggle she escaped
a physical wreck.
After that the cats were looked after,
when to the general surprise it was dis
covered that very few were to be found
Those that remained had short shrift of
it, but were sacrificed to the public good.
When the plague subsided there was
not a pussy in the community, and it
was a long time before the settlers began
importing them. Evidence and subse
quent result appeared to prove conclu
sively that the cats had been among the
most potent factors in the spread of the
disease. And the effect of their sick
ness for farther reaching than could have
been imagined.—New York Sun

OBSERVED THE DAY
WASHINGTON'S BIRTHDAY THE OC
CASION FOR MANY PATRI
ELOQUENT TRIBUTES ARE PAID
Sons of American Revolution, G. .1.
R. Pomtm, Y. M. C. A. and Other
Yesterday was Wellington's birthday
and the day was very generally observed
throughout the city with appropriate ex
ercises. The holiday was taken full ad
vantage of and the city was partially off
duty. The state capitol, me court house
and city hall, the banks and the postorhce
were practically closed and many of the
stores in the city closed their doors and
gave their employes a vacation.
A number of meetings were held'
throughout the city at which eloquent
orators impressed upon the rising gener
ation the lessons of the heroic life of the
Father of his Country. In the afternoon
the Minnesota Society of the .oons of the
Revolution held a public service at wh'ch
Rev. J. P. Montgomery, of Minneapolis,
delivered an eloquent oration. The vari
ous Grand Army posts held services com
memorative of the patriotic occasion.
One of the noticeable features of all the
meetings was the large number of cnil
dren in attendance. Young America was
out in force yesterday, and the speakers
generally tooK occasion to make it worth
their while by speakiing of the lessons
which the rising generation should take
to heart from the life of Washington.
The meeting at the Commercial club is
treated of in another column.
The Human Washington.
The Minnesota Society of the Sons of
the American Revolution celebrated
Washington's Birthday by a public
service at the Central Presbyterian
church yesterday afternoon. The church
was filled with an enthusiastic audience.
Three hundred children from the Sibley
school were brought down in a special
car, and they filled the balcony of the
church, and did the largest part of the
singing, making the church ring with
their youthful voices in the patriotic
songs of the afternoon.
The House of Hope quartette, Miss Al
berta Fisher, Mrs. Allen C. Krieger, Mr.
Harry Eugene George and Mr. David
Fergusson Colville, assisted in the musi
cal programme. Miss Anna C. McMillan
was organist, and Miss Elsie M. Shawe
director of the chorus.
President Henry Augustus Boardman,
of the society, presided. The chorus
joined in "Columbia, the Gem of the
Ocean;" Rev. J. D. Paxton offered
prayer; the quartette sang "Lord, While
For All Mankind We Pray," after which
President Boardman made a few intro
ductory remarks, and the chorus sang
"God Guard Columbia."
Rev. James F. Montgomery, of Minne
apolis, was orator of the day, and he de
livered an address of eloquence and
power. The spirt of the whole oration
was the humanizing of Washington. The>
speaker did not deify Washington, but
discussed him as a flesh and blood man,
living and acting" as other men, and be
cause of this fact being nearer and more
interesting to mankind. He began by
reciting the events of Washington's
youth to prove him a healthy, natural
boy. Much humor was injected into this
part of his address, the speaker referring
to Washington's popularity with the fair
sex daring his young manhood. He
read some "poetry" which Washington
had written to his youthful flames, "just
as we all have done," and declared that
as a poet the Father of His Country
"was the worst that ever happened." The
speaker Injected many humorous Inci
dents tending to throw light upon Wash,
lngton's character, and proving him the
very opposite of the cold, classic type of
man he had been made by the historians,
reckless of truth in their unpardonable
efforts to make him a little god.
Dr. Montgomery referred to the ofv
made comparison of Washington and Na.
poleon, and declared it to be sacrilege.
Napoleon, he said, was the incarnation
of selfishness; Washington wholly un
selfish. All that Washington did he did
for his country, without thought of per
sonal aggrandizement. In this utter un
selfishness of public service he was the
type for the present day, and his lesson
of unselfish service the most needed l#s
son of those times. He spoke of Wash
ington's great magnanimity and generos
ity and called attention to his many per
sonal donations to the army during the
hardest times of the Revolution. He
was a wealthy man, but the kind of
wealthy men we are greatly in need ot
His money was always at the disposal
of his country."
Accounted for Stewardship.
He said Washington's highest praise
was the manner in which he accounted
for his stewardship as the head of this
government. A dishonest man, a man
even indifferently sensitive to the high
est cense of honor, would have made a
personal fortune out of Washington's op
portunities. Washington could have done
this without being harshly criticised, but
in all his life he turned not one opportu
nity which came to him to his own per
sonal advantage. He gave his whole life
and power to the foundation of nis coun
try, and the progress of that country
was the highest tribute to the stability
and basic strength of his work.
He was a God-made man, a product
of the times, filling a place no other
could have filled, and by his life proving
his title clear to Brougham's tribute, "He
was the greatest man of his own or any
The great events, in Washington's life
were described with thrilling power by
the speaker—Valley Forge, Crossing the
Delaware, Surrender of CornwalUs, the
first inauguration. Dr. Montgomery sa:cl
the patriotism of that day, not only
Washington's, but the patriotism of the
colonies which so nobly supported Wash
ington In his work, was the patriotism
The quartette sang "The Boys of the
Old Brigade," and the audience joined in
"Upon thei platform were two sons or
Revolutionary soldiers, John Wesley Ora
ry, of St. Paul, and Van Rensselaer Git
ford, of Northfield, the latter the youngest
living son of a Revolutionary soldier.
They were introduced to the audience by
Teachers Observe Occasion.
Although the state capitol building was
closed yesterday there was a Washington
celebration in the building. It was held
by the teachers engaged in reading the
examination papers for the department
of public instruction. W. G. Smith, ed
itor of the Minnesota School Journal, ar
ranged the programme, and yesterday
afternoon the teachers took a half hour
from their work to give over to the birth
day of the rather of his Country.
Mr. Smith introduced the programme in
a characteristic speech, and presented Dr.
John Ogden to speak on "The Woman
Who fnspired Washington." Dr. Ogden
saiu that for buk thousand years women
had been in the business of inspiring men,
so it was no uncommon thing in Wash
ington's case. Washington, left father
less at thirteen, derived a. large part of
his strength and resolution from his
mother, and later from his wife. Dr.
Ogden eaid that the teacher should re
member the influence of woman, and be
to the pupil not omy teacher, but mother
and sister as well. The .eacher, said he,
has the opportunity of molding the oes
tiny of the nation.
Mrs. E. K. Jacques spoke on "Wash
ington's Highest urade." "When ali
have done their utmost, surely he hath
given the best who gives a character
erect and constant," was the thought of
County Superintendent E. IT. *Ericson,
of Isanti, spoke of "Washington in His
tory," and declared that the lessons of
his life ought to be impressed upon the
mind of every school pupil and enforced
on the attention year after year," until
the lesson became at part of the citizen's
character. .'•'■:... :■:■. ■ - ■

oping the citizen of the coming genera
tion so that citizenship should become a

Assistant Superintendent C. G. . Schultz,
of the department of public instruction,
spoke briefly and then the teachers all
joined in singing "America," led by Mrs.
A. B. Chapin, of Hastings.
At the Y. M. C. A.
The debating club at the Y. M. C. A. ■
last night held a patriotic service on the
life of Washington. :E. R. Wakefleld
delivered the principal address of the
evening. He took up the life of Wash
ington and studied it from its personal
aspect. In it he found many things that:
are of assistance to the young man who
is struggling to make a success of life.
His address was well received, and th©
members of the club took up a discussion
of the life of Washington, several of them
speaking in terms of eulogy. One of the
features of the general discii^,n was
the fact that among the speakers were
three foreigners, who were glad to have
the opportunity of praising the "greatest
hero of the world."
rA t the next meeting of the club the
question, "Resolved that Cromwell was a
greater general than Napoleon," will be
discu^.d. The club also made arrange

IN HOTEL FIRE
Continned From First Page,
poX °f the house by firemen and by
At the windows on the Park avenue side
of the hotel many persons appeared.
Women were screaming frantically for

of the hotel, who were to leave today on
the transport McClellan for Manila ap
peared , at a fifth floor window on the
Thirty- street side, screaming loud-
Jninped From Husband's Side.
.A. Mrs- Charles Bennett and her
husband, of Alabama, stood at the fifth
floor on a ledge directly over the Rortico
and main entrance of the hotel. Mrs
Bennett, evidently thinking that no one
was going to rescue her, struggled from
her husband's grasp, and shouted that
she was going to jump. The firemen
gathered in a circle below and, stretched
out their arms. She broke away from
her husband and flung herself out of the
window, while the flames had almost en
veloped her. She was killed. Her hus
band rushed into the hall and made his
escape, though he was slightly burned.
Col. Burdett, after making a desperate
attempt to save Ms life,, met death in
a shocking manner. His skull wasl split
open and he was found shortly after 6
o'clock lying in the courtyard within the
hotel. He had fallen six storie?.
Col Burdett dragged the mattress from
his bed and dropped it to the roof of an
extension over the hotel dining room,
three stories below. Then, by tying the
sheets together, he made a rope and se
cured it to the window. His object was
to land on the mattress. He miscalcu
lated the distance.
J. M. Sheehan, a contractor from New.
burg, Pa., bravely removed two elderly
women and hie himself escaped only
finally to fall over in a dazed condition
in the corridor of the hotel.
A pitiful sight was that of Mrs. Piper,
whose hustoand, Col. Alexander M. Pi
per, was found burned to death near the
elevator shaft. She managed to escape
and was taken by friends to a private
residence, but partly clad. She was not
informed of the death of her husband,
as it was feared that the shock would

One of the saddest incidents of the

S. B. Granger, of Seattle, Wash., wl:o
had Ibeen a guest at the hotel for three
days, has this to say of the fire.
"I was in my room on the second floor
front when I awoke. I went down into
the hall and met a man hastening
through the corridor. He said to me with
out my asking the question: 'Don't wor
ry; this hotel is fire-proof.'
" 'There is always danger,' I said. "1
lost my wife ten years ago by fire in
a Nebraska hotel, and I am going out
as fast as I can.' Soon afterward the
flames were discovered in the hotel. There
was no notification and no rapping by
any of the hotel employes."

he was in the hotel on the sixth floor and
was aroused by smoke. "In the hall,"

no means of escape In the building. This

Fire Chief Croker says: "The fact
that the hotel was practically fireproof
was responsible for the fact that a great

Armory Loss Is $70'0i,000.
The Seventy-first regiment armory coit
the state $700,000 to build. The loss
will be somewhat more. The only thing
saved from the fire was the tablet com
memorative of the killed and wounded
at the battle of Bull Run, which was pre
sented to the regiment by Col. Heiiry 1.
The damage to the Park Avenue hotel,
Manager Reed said, would not exceed
$50,000. The hotel Is still open and is
serving meals and providing accommoda
tion for its guests.
Maj. Gen. C. F. Roe estimated the
state's loss on the equipments, etc., as
between $75,000 and $100,000.
"The armory contained," he said, "the
headquarters of the First brigade, the
Seventy-first regiment, with about GSO of
ficers and men; the First signal corps,
with three officers and! forty men, and
the second battery, with five officers and
"The state owned the clothing supplied
to all these.
"The Seventy-first had a distinctive full

of these were in the armory, the loss en
them to the members of the regiment
was about $13,000. If all the dress uni

fire started, but assume that it must nave
been from a cigar or cigarette."
