THE WHOLE STORY
The story of Republican extrava
gance and incapacity in business af
fairs is told in the report of Mr. Rob
erts, treasurer of the United States, for
the last fiscal year. During the twelve
months ending June 30, 1904, the net
ordinary revenues of the government
decreased nearly $20,000,000, and the
net ordinary expenditures- increased
ever $76,000,000. We have here a total
change for the bad of only a little short
of $100,000,000. And this is the record
of a party that prides itself upon its
ability in the conduct of practical af
Republicans say that theirs is the
party that "does things." If by "doing
things" they mean spending money, we
agree with them. They know how to
get rid of a surplus in great shape.
They have increased protective duties
to the point of prohibiting importations
altogether in many lines. Thus they
decrease the treasury's receipts. It
must never be forgotten—it is, indeed,
a cardinal fact of Republican doctrine
—that high duties bring in less money.
The original McKinley bill had as a
part of its title "an act to.reduce reve
nue." The Dingley bill is even more
attractive in that direction.
While our protected trusts are selling
to the foreigner at prices pretty nearly
50 per cent below what the home con
sumer has to pay, the foreigner may
not sell to us at all. The duty that he
must pay is so high that he keeps out
of our market altogether. The Ameri
can consumer loses the benefit of com
petition, and the United States treasury
loses the money that would be paid
on importations if duties were reason
able enough to make importation pos
sible. We have, therefore, restricted
our dutiable imparts to those com
modities where a sufficiently high price
can bevextracted from our own people
to cover the cost of the duty. The
treasury feels and must go on feeling
the effect in diminished receipts.
At the same time expenditures grow
and grow. Leaving out of the ques
tion the payment for the Panama
canal, we are still running up enor
mous bills. The figures that we have
given are for the fiscal year only.
Since that time three and a half
months have elapsed, and the record is
still worse. For the first three months
of the current fiscal year, entirely sub
sequent to the report that we have
Quoted, we have lost $6,500,000 in reve
nue and our expenses have mounted
by $18,000,000. At this* rate the de
crease of revenue for the entire year
■would be J26.000.000 and the increase
of expenditure $72,000,000. We should
thus have by the end of the fiscal year
1905 another deficit of $100,000,000 to be
added to the $100,000,000 charged up
against the year just closed.
What sort of business management
can this be called? We are a great
and rich country, but we cannot go on
wasting at both ends in this way for
ever. We shall never do anything else
until there is a change of administra
tion at Washington. The party in
power is saturated with two ideas and
utterly in the power of two great
forces that work to the same end. The
ideas are insanely high protective
duties and an equally insane willing-,
ness to spend money. The two forces
that own the Republican organization
ere the tariff protected trusts which
fatten on monopoly, and the greedy
combinations that sv.ell every appro
priation bill far beyond reasonable
limifs! There is no possibility of re
form for Republicanism in either di
rection. It could not if it would. It
is joined to its idols. It is not a free
agent, but must do the bidding of its
masters. These have a first and a last
command; which are to suffer no in
dustry to escape from the utmost ex
actidns of tiigh tariff, and to let no
maw go unfilled that clamors for ap
Everyone knows now that the disas
ters of 1893 and the years following
were the ripened fruits .of Republican
administration. Everyone knows that
the last year of the Harrison adminis
tration was a struggle against an emp
ty treasury and a declining credit, and
that had it done its duty it would
have issued the necessary bonds in
stead of transmitting its embarrass
ments and its duties to Mr. Cleveland
and the Democratic party. The same
conditions are being repeated. The
golden stream has been pouring out
of the treasury, and the time of danger
is near. Leave the Republican party
in power and we shall be a bankrupt
nation before the end of another four
years. There is no issue that ought to
appeal to us as a sensible business
people more powerfully than this.

point out something that he is for.
McCLELLAN'S FIGHTING BLOOD
Mayor McClellan, of New York,
probably had no idea what trouble he
was brewing for himself when he in
dulged* in the remark that the old
Adam in him sometimes cried out for
war. He was talking to delegates to
the peace convention and it was rather
a startling thing to say undec-the cir-
cumstances. But McClellan voiced the
sentiment of a very respectable ma
jority of his fellows, the peace conven
tions to the contrary notwithstanding.
His utterance is not to be taken as in
dicative of a "bloodthirsty disposition.
It was not the warrior's son in him that
spoke, put just the ordinary man who
is sickened by the balderdash that is
indulged in by those excellent persons
who are writing and talking platitudes
about the era of universal peace.
There are some things that require
the arbitrament of the sword. In the
abstract we are all for peace of course,
iut wheji sonje other power steps on
rtTncle),..Sam's corns it is remarkable
with what unanimity we forget our
peaceiul intentions and insist on
punching somebody's head. .When
Mayor McClelian spoke of the old
Adam in him he referred to that belli
cosity which is latent in all of us and
which is aroused so promptly when our
rights are invaded.' It is by no means
the spirit that inspired Col. Roosevelt
to advise that we speak softly and'
carry a big fetick. In that advice there
is a plunderous instinct. It is the spirit
of the marauder who dissembles in
order to strike the harder. McClelian
does not declare for war, he simply ad
mits the necessity of a resort to arms
under provoking conditions. War is, of
course, deplorable, but peace may be
too dearly bought sometimes.
The mayor of New York voices the
spirit of his Jime and country. We
nant peace—and we will have it if we
have to fight for it. ,
A reform wave has reached Minne
apolis. In two weeks it will be a ripple.
THE REAL TROUBLE WITH KAN
One may select one's grandparents
with the greatest care, but if fate elects
that one shall be born in Kansas the
care will avail one little, for it is not
the occasional Kansas citizen but the
state itself that Is mad. At least this
is what an lowa professor who has
been diagnosing Kansanitis assures a
concerned public. In the light of his
revelation, Mr. White's attempt to ex
plain Kansas eccentricities appears un
successful and superficial. The editor
laid the blame for.the state's reputa
tion for dementia on the shoulders of a
few citizens, but the professor places
it where he believes it belongs, in the
latitude and longitude of Kansas.
It cannot be denied that this latest
diagnosis explains much. It explains
the smallness of Kansas potatoes as
well as the ebullitions of Mrs. Nalion.
It explains Kansas cyclones and Kan
sas politicians. It explains the weather
and Mary Ellen Lease. It is as rich in
explanations, indeed, as the last act of
Nevertheless, we fancy the diagnosis
will not be gratefully accepted by Kan
sas citizens. For the thought that one
is predestined to madness because of
one's geographical location will de
prive the great bulk of Kansas citizens
of hope and may deprive Kansas of
many of those citizens. For while the
professor does not state that a native
of Kansas becomes normal as soon as
he leaves the state, he suggests -be
tween the lines of his utterance how
the Kansas citizen may save his chil
It is not probable, therefore, that the
university man's diagnosis will be ac
cepted as the last word on Kansas.

that runs something like this:

There is a periodical revival of th«
old scheme to give Canada an outlet
to Europe through the waters of Hud
son's Bay. It has held the imagina
tion of many people in the Dominion
from the very earliest days of settle
ment. Its advantages would be two
fold; commercial and military. From
the fact that the curvature of the
earth makes the northernmost route
east or west the shortest, such a line
would gain greatly in distance over its
competitors. By its remoteness f
the United States it would be most se
cure against interruption in case of
war with us or any other power.
The construction of another railroad
line to the Pacific through Canada
witnesses the restless desire of her
people to make themselves a conti
nental factor, and to gain commercial
independence of their powerful neigh
bor on the south. If such a line could,
in the future, establish a direct east
ward communication with Hudson's
Bay, it would become not merely a de
veloper of internal resources but a fac
tor in the transportation of the world's
commerce. This is the idea which the
Canadian mind finds it impossible to
The whole thing Is nothing r-ore
than a plaything for the imagination.
Inexorable nature settled the question
long ago. Railroads can be built, giv
en engineering skill and enough money,
through any kind of country and over
or around all obstacles. But ships
cannot be sailed through seas locked
up in Impenetrable barriers of ice. All
sorts of fairy stories have been told
about the possibilities of the Hudson's
Bay .route, but,lt is strictly and for
ever limited by the presence of ice in
the bay or in the straits through which
ships must pass from it to reach the
ocean. Exceptional seasons aside, not
more than five months of open naviga
tion could be counted on; while there
are years in which vessels would not
find a passage free to them for more
than three months out of the twelve.
This is-a condition that no, effort of
man can overcome. Russia is in the
midst of a great war whose moving
cause was the necessity of having a
terminus for her great railroad on an
ice-free harbor. She had Vladivostok,
but she needed Port Arthur and Dalny,
and she needed to own the country
through which the road must run t«
reach them. Tet Vladivostok is a com
fortable winter resort as compared to
any spot that could be chosen on Hud
son's Bay. The dream of a northern
route is as idle as the ambition to
reach the pole, and would prove as
practically useless If it could ever for
a moment be turned into fact.
Perhaps Mr. Young declined to run
because he feared he would be indorsed
by the Good Roads association. i
Since young Lo^hinvar rode out of
the West, the Occident has been a
synonym for masculine self-sacrifice
and for gallantry, but it has remained
for Arizona to furnish the most recent
proof that "The ladies, God bless
'em," is still the favorite toast drunk
in the land of the setting sun. A citi
zen of Tombstone, Ariz., having de
cided, modestly enough, that he was
something of a matrimonial prize and
being averse to placing under the ban
of his disapproval all other women l)y
his voluntary act of selecting one, has
determined to raffle himself off, one dol
lar a chance. With the money thus ob
tained he and the winner of the prize
will begin housekeeping.
Marriage has frequently been dubbed
a lottery, and the ingenious gentleman
from Tombstone (he prefers to remain
anonymous, a great unknown) will
thus make it one in fact. But the deli
cacy that prompted the Arizonian's ac
tion, his reluctance to offend the many
by declaring in favor of the one, his
willingness to give everybody .a chance
(he has mentioned no age limit) must
convince the public that whatever risk
there is jn the matrimonial venture is
assumed by him.
For whereas the holder of the lucky
ticket will have a tolerably clear idea
of what she is getting, he, because of
his gallant disinclination to make it
anything but a free for all race, must
expect the worst and will doubtless
get it. It would be comforting to be
lieve that the Arizonian's heroism will
be appreciated by the right sort of
woman, but with regret it must be
confessed that such self-abnegation is
seldom rewarded in this world.
However, no matter what unfortu
nate turn the course of events may
take in this matter t>f the Tombstone
citizen's matrimonial venture, it is most
probable that his gallantry will be ap
preciated by the gentler sex as a whole.
There will not be that disquieting
thought that one woman possesses that
which all other women lack. On the
contrary, the Arizonian's commendable
humility will convince all womankind
that she is still securely poised on her
pedestal and that, rumors to. the con-
trary notwithstanding, she has not ex-:
changed her superiority for equality.

At St. Paul Theaters
A musical extravaganza, slightly more
extravagant than musical, but withal a
first-rate evening's entertainment is "The
Runaways," in which the abbreviated
comedian Arthur Dunn is the feature at
the Metropolitan for the first half of this
week. The comedy element is predomi
nant. Much of it has r; connection with
the gastronomic theme which serves as a
plot, but it is all bright and clever and
nearly all new to local theatergoers. The
music is of the variety known as
"catchy," but is not distinctive from any
one of a number of recent musical pro
ductions. This fault, however, possibly
belongs to the said recent productions
which may have "cribbed" from the
The interest naturally centers on Arthur
Dunn. Having done so it remains
on the extremely unctuous little com
edian. His suavity of manner i 3 sug
gestive of Francis Wilson, but there all
similarity ends. His limited stature, his
smooth little swaggering walk, persuasive
smile and roguish eyes are all very, very
funny to say nothing of the things he
says and his dry way of saying- them. He
uses all these arts, too, in singing one of
the hits of the piece, "A Kiss for Each
Day in the Week," which was encored re
peatedly, and in some clever parodies
which were also applauded until Mr. Dunn
complained that "the shown is long and
I am short."
The second act is much the better of
the two in every way. The scene is
Salad Glen in the Isle of Table d'Hote,"
a haven for dyspeptics and is prettily
mounted. In this act the music is more
pleasing than the first, the costuming
much better and the large chorus appears
to better advantage. The musical num
ber, "My Radiant Firefly," i s most tune
ful and is enhanced by splendid lighting
effects and costuming.
Miss Gladys Coleman* who, on account
of the illness of Miss Blanche Wayne, was
compelled to substitute on short notice in

A topical song, "The Man With the
Dough" proved popular as sung by Gen.
Hardtack (Clarence Harvey). The latter
is a capable comedian and deserves a
share of the credit for the success of the
entertainment. Charles Dox is another
comedian who is as tall as Arthur Dunn
is short and his characterization of the
"skin doctor" is very laughable. The role
of Josey May Darling, a comic opera
queen, receives excellent treatment in
the hands of Miss Erminie Earle, who is
of most pleasing appearance and the pos
sessor of a very good voice. An acro

The melodrama is familiar to most pa
trons of the Grand, and apparently pleas
ing to all of them. The most commend
able acting, from a critical viewpoint, is
displayed by Frances Desmonde, who en
acts the imperturbable wronged woman
who rights herself before the final concus
sion. Frederick Ormonde is also a capa
ble villain. August Gill as the heroine
and Harry W. Fenwick as the hero de
port themselves in strict compliance with
the melodramatic laws of heroic etiquette.
Miss Gill is especially convincing in the
soldier's uniform and goes through the
manual of arms Ike a veteran. Then there
is the rough riders' band and lots of sol
diers and supernumeraries and scenery.

nately, are not funny. Wilson's enuncia
tion is so bad that very little of what
he says is understood?
The best specialty in the whole perform
ance 1 is that of the Zeb and Zarrow trio,
trick bicyclists and comedians. Aside
from their extraordinary Yeats on wheels
they uphold the comedy end of the bur
lesque, and are the most entertaining trio
of men in the show. Rhoda Bernard, a
coon shouter, has a big voice. Two Eu
ropean acts, which. are exhibited for the
first time in this country, are the Bo
hemian musical troupe and the Austrian
troupe. The musical act Is not very at
tractive, inasmuch as the selections played
by the not over-talented performers do
not appeal to the American popular fancy.
The Austrian drill, however, is very spir
ited and the songs sung in German are
quaint and pretty and are well sung by
the vivacious six women who march and
countermarch and fence with the broad
sword. The burlesque is well mounted,
but is too long. The song. "Come Take
a Trip in My Airship" is well received, but
the parody on the same, sung by Jolly
Zeb, is a "scream."

DR. (UM ARRESTS
Physician Takes Man In Charge
Whom He Accuses of In*
Dr. J. A. Quinn early yesterday morning
arrested a man and stands ready to ap
pear In police court and prosecute the
case if such action is necessary to secure
the proper punishment of the fellow.
The man against whom the charge is
made spent yesterday and last night in
the central police station, being charged
with disorderly conduct and unable to fur
nish the bail necessary to secure his lib
erty. He gave the name of George Ga
As Dr. Quinn stepped from the Metro
politan hotel he noticed Gagewski approach
a woman who was rapidly walking on
Fourth street, and heard him use vile
language. Not content with this Ga
gewski is charged with having followed the
woman, giving her a bad fright. She ran'
to escape from his attentions, Gagewski
There being no policeman in sight Dr.
Quinn took Gagewski in charge and turned
him over to Sergeant Pat Murnane, with
the request that he be locked up. This
was done, the doctor agreeing that he
would appear in police court today and
prosecute the case.
"I don't know who the woman was."
explained Dr. Quinn. "She had apparently
just come from the train. She was car
rying a small grjp, and inquired with a
decided French accent the way to Seven
corners. Gagewski, or whatever his name
is, called out to her in a most insulting
manner, and when she started off tried to
overtake her. I thought it would be a
good lesson to mashers and took him in
charge. I don't know the identity of the
woman, and not being able to secure her
testimony I suppose that it will be neces
sary for me to prosecute the case. The
fellow used vile language and is certainly
guilty of disorderly conduct."
Children Under 16 Scarce on
Streets After 9 o'clock
Last IN ght
"If the citizens of St. Paul would
follow The Globe's example and
go after the violators of the curfew
ordinance, thereby helping the police de

satisfactory results, and the practical

a police officer to a Gl ob c reporter last
The streets, however, were remarkably
clear of youngsters last night. Lieut.
Twohy was in charge of the downtown
districts, and kept moving all the time.
The boys were keeping very quiet, and

The only stir of the evening came when
the theaters were let out. Then a num
ber of the gallery godsx who had not as
yet reached the age of sixteen were de
posited in the streets, and each and every
one of them met a blue coat as soon as the
door of the 1 theater was reached.
No trouble, however, ensued. The boys
said they had been at the theater, and
would immediately depart for home. They
were all helped along with a few words
of warning, and none of them had the
hardihood to disregard the warnings.
Three youngsters, however, eluded

On Wabasha street not one child was
seen after the hour of 9. In the lower
section of the town and the slums, the
officers kept a sharp lookout, and when
the reporter visited those sections not a
boy or girl under sixteen was in sight.
No arrests were made during the even
ing. The scare is evidently on among
young America. The youngsters were
given to understand by Chief O'Connor's
men ihat an unceasing vigilance would be
maintained and that after a warning
which was deemed sufficient the.patrol
wagon would be their finish.
Members of Total Abstinence Society Dis-
cuss Need of New Quarters
The Crusaders' Total Abstinence society
met yesterday afternoon at Cretin hall,
elected officers, talked over plans for the
winter and discussed the advisability of
securing new quarters.
The increase in membership necessitates
larger quarters. Several locations were
considered at the meeting yesterday, but
nothing was done, and the matter will be
taken up at the next meeting.
This winter the society will give several
social entertainments and will make the
season a pleasant one. During the past
four months not so active an interest was
taken in the society's welfare by the
members, but with the return of coid
weather they will revive the .old, spirit and
it is promised that much will be done to
improve the society.
The officers for the ensuing year were
unanimously elected as follows: P. J.
Ryan, president; T. F. Young, vice presi*
dent; J. W. Barrett, recording secretary;
J. T. Harrington, financial secretary; E. J.
McManus, treasurer, and T. P. Harrington,
librarian. With the exception of the presi
dent, all served In their various capa
cities during the past year.
The following were chosen as the ex
ecutive committee: J. E. Corcoran, J. N.
McHugh. R. A. McDonnell, J. Burns and
M. E. Brown.

DR. BOYLE SCORES
Pastor of House of Hope
Church Replies to Man
Who Defends Them
"I'd rather have my son enter the Rob
ert G. Ingersoll school of agnosticism
than to have him listen to the kind of rot
served at the St. Paul theaters last Sab
bath evening." declared Dr. W. H. \V.
Boyle in the House of Hope Presbyterian
church last evening, when in a prelude to
the regular sermon he answered an anony
mous letter giving three reasons why the
Sunday theater should exist.
"I wish the man who wrote this letter
had signed his name. I would like to
pray with him," continued Dr. Boyle.
"He says that he does not believe in con
science; that the matter of conscience
does not bother him. I would not like to
be at the deathbed of that man, when
he is called upon to face the hereafter,
concerning the existence of which he ex
presses a doubt. He says to me, 'You
may want a good time hereafter, but I'll
take mine now. it is evident that the
writer is in sore <iced of prayer.
His Three Reasons
"As you know I asked from this pulpit
for three reasons for the existence or Jus
tification of the Sunday theater, and have
in my hand an answer. The writer says:
" 'First—That Sunday is his day off a*nd
that he conceives that he is entitled to
spend the day in a manner that brings
rum the most pleasure. "I can better for
get my worldly cares," he says, "while
listening to one song containing some of
the spice of life than by spending an hour
and a half with you." For his second rea
son he says: .
•' 'I feel more independent at the theater
when paying my way than I do occupying
a seat i n your church free of charge and
having the collection plate passed around.'
Possibly Re was one of the 300 who last
Sunday gave 5 cents each at this service.
Thirdly he says:
" 'Sunday is like any other day to me.
being a time when the animal has a
chance to spread itself. A good time is
a good time to me, and I cannot see why
you should object if I take pleasure in
what I see from in front or find behind
the footlights. In my estimation nothing
can be very wrong that is natural.
Wants His Good Time Now
"'I have no use for religion. Do not
believe in conscience and therefore the
matter of conscience does not bother me.
I find my pleasure and my recreation in
the theater. You may find it in the
church. You may want a good time here
after, but Tl take mine now.' "
The evening's sermon was on "A Por
trait of God's Young Woman; Her Pe
culiarities and Powers." Mr. Boyle took
the position that woman should be a mod
el in deportment, and should in all ways
assist her husband or other relatives.
"In a world like this idleness spella
selfishness," declared Dr. Boyle. "I would
prefer the toil-hardened hands lifted to
God in prayer to the soft, white hand 3
that are not raised in recognition of Him.
I know a young woman, moving in a jjood
social circle, who recently said of a func
tion that she attended, 'I had a bully
time.' Of another event she remarked, 'I
had a heavenly time.' Genuineness in
womanhood—l love that word genuineness
—is the joy of God. Exaggeration is a lie
fully told; fabrication a lie without rea
son. Forego such and live the upright,
genuine life of truthfulness, usefulness
