The attempt of ihe Methodist
church to make $1,000 the minimum
salary which any of Its ministers
shall receive may be followed by sim
ilar action on the part of the Congre
gationalists. The Rev. Dr. George A.
Gordon of Boston, In commentls on
the matter recently, called attention to
something which Is frequently forgot
ten, namely, that conditions of life
have changed, until now. Instead of
churches somewhere nearly equal in
financial resources, there are Bome
very rich and powerful churches, and
some very poor and weak; and what
is needed Is a general sustentation
fund which shall put the poorer
churches more nearly on a part with
the richer ones. Dr. Gordon sas,
probably with justice, that It is fast
becoming an impossibility to get self
respecting young men. even among
those who follow an ideal, to work for
such small salaries as many churches
pay, and therefore the churches suffer
from the lack of the kind of preachers

President Roosevelt, ex-President
Cleveland, Dr. Henry van Dyke and
the best of the nature writers can Dsh
and hunt and give a fair account of
themselves in their relation to beasts
and fishes. At a recent convention of
anglers Dr. tan Dyke defined a true
sportsman as "a man who finds his
recreation in a fair and exciting effort
to get something that is made for hu
man use la a way that involves some
hardship, a little risk, a good deal of
skill and ability, and plenty of out-of-door
life." Mr. Cleevland sent his
word of protest against "fishing hog
gery," and Mr. Roosevelt's utterance
on the subject Is characteristic: 'To
make a veiy large ha;, whether of
d"er. or pruirle chickens, or d icks, or
quail, or woodcock, or trout. Is some
thing of which to be ashamed and not

tice with the requisite tools. Foot
ball, apparently, cannot be learned ex

college paper gravely protests against
the freshmen's increasing habit ol
walking on the prohibited side of a
certain street, and declares college
customs to a sacred tradition, to be
reverently observed by each youns

- Was Reprehensible-.
Washington. President Rooscv cit's
attitude on the question of the cum

which resulted in the resignation ol
Rear Admiral W 11 lard H. Itroannon
and Incidentally some caustic observa

and their adherents as to details ol
naval construction and methods ol
training, were made known Sunday
when Secretary Metcalf gnv.- to thf
Press two letters from the president
addressed to hint on the-"! subjects
In the first of these letters. Presi
dent Roosevelt, without mlnrln?
words, condemns In unmeasured
terms the act of Admiral lirownson
declaring it to be unseemly and im
proper. The question as to which
Admiral Iti-ownson took Issue with the
navy department the president de
c'ares Is one as to which there can
be entirely legitimate differences of
opinion, but he adds, "there 19 no
room for difference of opinion as to
the gross Impropriety of the admiral's
conduct in resigning sooner than
carry out thesorders of his superior
officers In such a matter. The officers
of the navy must remember that It Is
not merely childish, but In the high
est degree reprehensible to permit
either personal pique, wounded van
ity, or factional feeling on behalf of
some particular bureau or organiza
tion to render them disloyal to the
Interests of the navy and therefore
of the country as a whole."

I'nited States Senator J. P. Dolliver
of Iowa delivered an address on "The
New Moral Outlook." Sunday In
Brooklyn. lVspite the critics who
contended that the government was
in the hands of the corruptl.mists.
Senator Dolliver said that the ountrv
was improving steadily. Speaking of
President Roosevelt, who he !e?'.are1
the greatest American he had ever
known. Senator Dolliver said: "Then
are many business men who say that
the country has taken alarm from
what the president did in trying to
clean up the market places of harmful
influences. I think the market places
should be purged, and I believe the
right course has been pushed."

The development of the American
Japanese situation Is beln studied
here day by day because from It there
may Issue events which might change
the present International balance and
deeply affect Europe as well as Amer
ica. The Marine Rundschau, the
principal naval magazine of Germany,
says In Its January number:
"If war does not come between
Japan and the I'nited States, the
I'nion may thank the preponderance
of its fleet for the maintenance of
peace. This fleet already is sufficient
ly strong to restrain Japan from the
hazard of war."
In conclusion the magazine says
the threatened conflict may now be
entirely avoided as a result of the
transfer of the fleet to. and other de
fensive measures In the Pacific.

ances From Japan Making Ac

Washington. Further information
relative to the contents of the com
munication from Ambassador O'Brien
dealing with the Japanese reply on
the immigration question was refused
at the state department Friday. Thir
ls the Invariable rule la cases when
negotiations are still In procrrss and
the Inference Is that Mr. O'Brien re
gards the Japanese answer as evine
ir.g a satisfactory disposition towards
the American desires, but that th
reply is not conclusive.
It Is expected that the Japanese
government will l:i some formal man
ner register Its purpose of preventing
the further immigration of coolies tc
the I'nited States and when the as
suranee on this point has taken satis

from the necessity of enacting au
legislation looking to the exclusion o:
