More land frauds have come to light,

such small matters.
The republican nomination for pres

the report that the "Dick forces in

may feel that the pull of the succes

As the1 republican national conven

that congress will be adjourned by the
republican leader by June 1. That

Poverty a Cause of Drunkenm-sK
The socialist's answer to the individ

the result of economic conditions.
England offers a great field for analy

drunkenness is the national curse, in
volving not only men, but women and
children. The evil is worst in London
In 12 hours each of 23 days that the
public houses or saloons of England
were kept under observation, no less
than 39,351 women and 10.74C children
entered them. Many of the children
were infants in arms. During the year
ending April 30, 1,050 persons were ar
rested for being drunk while in charge
of children under 7 years of age. Of
the number 830 were women and 220
men. The women who enter the pub
lic houses are not, as might be sup
posed, the fallen, but respectable wives
of workmen. The women frequent, the
saloons at all hours of th night, and
they feed the children the strong drinks
they tako themselves.
The drink evil Is worst in the manu
iacturing towns. Macaulay long ago
warned the government of Britain that
in tolerating the conditions which
cursed factory towns it was breeding
a future race of men and women phys
ically weak and easy victims to the
allurements of vice. r General drunken
nesa proves one feature of his proph
ecy, the other feature of which was
borne out when Britain sought to re
cruit its army in the factory towns
and found practically all the men of
military age physically incapacitated
for service in South Africa.
In this connection it is important to
view another fact, which is that four-
fifths of the land of England is owned
by about one-quarter of 1 per cent of
the population. The average holding
of each peer is about 36,000 acres. The
peers control the house of lords and
have defeated every proposed land" re
form. The land of London is taxed
today as though it were farm realty,
and no more than centuries ago. What-'

'SOUL HOUSES" FROM EGYPT.
Boston Museum of Fine Arts Receive:
Valuable Egyptian Relics.
Two "soul houses," probably mori
than 0,000 years old, were recently in
stalled in the Egyptian department of
the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
While possessing no importance as art
objects, they are of great historical
interest, because they show what were
the ordinary houses of the Egyptians
in the country at a date prior to 3000
B. C, says the Boston Globe.
These "soul houses" are made of
rough pottery and were placed upon
the graves for the shelter of the soul.
They show that from simple hutches
the Egyptian dwellings developed into
houses of several compartments, with
courtyards, balconies and stairways, to
what appears to have been n roof gar
Iu one of those secured by the Mu
seum of Fine Arts a pile of firewood
Is shown in the corner of the yard,
and there are bins for the reception of
corn, while the roof is supported in the
front by round pillars, and there are
covered porches on the balcony. The
second one is simpler in form, but has
a stairway in the tront leading up
to the balcony.
The strongest belief of the Egyptians
and one which influenced the whfcle
character of the nation was a belief in
the immortality of the soul, or "Ka."
In order that the ka should at the last
day have a body in which to be cloth
ed, 'mummification was carried to a
most advanced stage. That the soul,
after leaving the body, should not be
homeless, the little "soul houses" were
made la imitation of the ordinary
dwelling In which the deceased had
Very few of these "soul houses"
have ever been found, as they were
naturally frail and in the course of
centuries were broken.

(Special Washington Correspondence hi
When the Democratic national com
mittee Bv-epted the proposition offered
by Denver to take the convent ion to
that city it acted wisely and well. It
is perfectly true that there was some
coiisider;tiojii of the hotel facilities of
more eastern cities. It is quite proba
ble that both Chicago aud Kansas City
will raise the question as to whether
Denver can properly entertain a great
convention. F.ut the men who are
members of the national committee
have no fears. They believe that the
great capital city of Colorado Mill
take tare of the national convention
successfully. If Denver does not take
pains to entertain the national conven
tion, troubles will come of it. If it does,
it will have a new reputation for being
one of the most prominent, one of the
most successful, 1 convention cities
which the nation knows.
It is fair to say about Denver that its
proposition was passed upou chiefly
because its 'financial suggestion was
the best offered. Denver offered $100,
000, ChieagO&J0,000. Kansas Glty $25,
000, Louisville practically nothing. As
a result Denver won the convention. A
national convention is not an easy
thing to handle. A national committee
is even harder. When the convention
ia over there will be some mouths dur
ing which the national committee must
have its own funds. Unless those
funds come from the convention there
will be a serious stringency, and it is
for this reason that Denver, offering
as It did a good surplus, had the best
of theXlispute. When Denver sends to
the national committee its contribu
tion It will, be warmly approved and
will receive from that committee a
very strong statement, as to the aid It
has given toward the work of the na
Mr. Cortslyou'a Position.
The story published widely that Mr.
Corteiyou ia antagonistic to the prfsi
, dent, and to the presidential policy is
absolutely ana uteraiiy untrue. I talk

assured me that there was no truth in
the statement. Afterward I went to

"Humph!" Roger grumbled, and Fe
licia made a little face at him and

waste of good material for you to

Felicia opened her eyes wide at that.
"Do you like to talk to me, Roger?"
she questioned, and Roger laughed and
said, "Yes. but you don't deserve it."
And Felicia, feeling very much flat
tered, leaned back in the carriage aud
peeped at Roger now and then, while
Mary mapped out the programme for
the next day.
"We will go to the hairdresser's ear
ly. Roger, don't you think Felicia
will look dear" with her hair marceled?"
"I think Felicia looks dear with her
hair any way."
"O-o-o-h," murmured Felicia from
Mary laughed aud went on.
"There are the Deering luncheon and
three teas and the art exhibit and the
Colburus' dinner aud a box party aft
er, and then the cotillon."
"Oh. stop!". Felicia pleaded, looking
at her cousin with 6tartled eyes. "Do
you expect me to do all that iu one
"She does." Roger, asserted, survey- ;
ing his couutry cousin with melancholy
eyes, "and where, oh, where, in all
that programme will you have a min
ute to spend with me?"
"I am not worrying about that," Fe
licia told him. dimpling, "but what
am I going to wear, Mary? What am
I going to wear?"
"There's your while dress," Mary
"But I can't wear that one dress to
a luncheon and three tens and a thea
ter party and a dance. What are you
going to wear. Mary?"
"My pale blue broadcloth will do for
the luncheon and the tea and the view.
Then I shall wear white lace to the
dinner and the rest of the evening."
"When in all that rush will you find
time to change?", was Roger's ques
tion. Mary leaned back in the corner of
the carriage. She was very pale, and
there were dark circles around her
"Oh, I don't know; I don't know,"
she said. "Sometimes I feel as if 1

Mary straightened up at that.

trying to speak lightly, "it's not so bad,

Between rushes that night Roger
caught Felicia for a moment alone in
the library. "Mary is dreadfully blue."
he told her. "She broke ber engage

"What did she break it for?" Felicia

From him I got nothing except silence,
but I did get the impression, which
may or may not be right, that the story
told alnuit his hostility to the presi

wholly without foundation. What Mr.
Corteiyou may do later I do nut know.
He may right Mr. Taft. I am very
sure he would fight Mr. Cannon or Mr.
Foraker. I don't think he would right
Mr. Roosevelt should the president
himself be a candidate.
Whether Mr. Corteiyou will be a
candidate or not n-i one can tell. From
the Democratic standiioint I ain not
able to say that lie would lie a very
strong candidate. Let us not forget
that it is Corteiyou who took from the
Mutual Life aud the Fqultable Life
associations almost $10O.!Hi of the
money of their itoliey holders and gave
it to the Republican national commit
tee. If Secretary Corteiyou shall be
nominated for the presidency, he will
have to explain this. He will have to
explain whathe has done with the
moneys that he as secretary of the
treasury has expeuded and why he de
posited them in favored banks: Iu
brief, Mr. Corteiyou will have more
matters to explain than any candidate
who might be offered for the presi
dency. ' r
Tha Sailing of the Fleet. "
If it is possible to make the cruise
of the-fleet to the Tacirie a political
incident, it seems likely that it will be
done. If it is practicable to make out
of the cruise a possibility of war, that,"
too, seems possible. For example.
In both the Washington and New
York taiers I reitd that all the Japa
nese servants on the ships have been
discharged. It appears that one serv
ant was detected in making drawings
of various parts of the ship on which
he was employed.'. The newspaper sto
ry is that not merely he, but all Japa
nese so employed have been given
their discharge. This may or may not
be true. Personally I do not think it Is
tue, but I do think that the publica
tion of matters of this sort is likely to
do incalculable harm to the relations
betw'een the United States and Japan.
Looking back some years, I can re
call very well that almost every cap
tain, commodore or admiral In the
United States navy had a Japanese

world with him!"
"Would you?" Roger asked.

Felicia gazed at him with intense in
dignation for a moment; then she turn
ed Jier back on him. "Silly !" she said.
When Felicia went to bed that night
she was so tired that she could not
sleep. The next morning she was as
pale as Mary. For a week the two
girls dragged their engagements, fin
ishing up on Saturday night with an
"Felicia wore her white dress. It
was mussed, and she knew that she
was not looking her best, but she was
so tired that she did not care. Roger
had sent her a bunch of violets, and
her dance card was filled with names,
but the fact gave her no satisfaction.
The fourth dance was Roger's.
"Enjoying it?" he asked briefly as
he swung her out Into the floor.
"Oh, I am so tired I shall drop," she
said. "Can't I go home, Roger?"
She looked so like a little weary child
that Roger laughed. "
"Baby," he teased and then tenderly,
"I'll hunt Mary up, and we will cut
the rest of It."
In the carriage Mary collapsed. "I
didn't dream I was so tired," she sob

So Felicia packed her little trunk,
and Mary packed a larger one, and
away they went to the country, where
the trees were crimson and gold and

commented, and he and Felicia fol

Mayor Dahlman's Interview.
There has come from the White
House no denial of the president's
statement to Mayor Dahlman of Oma
ha that he did not regret being instru
mental in bringing on the recent panic
In Wall street. Two New York news
papers denounced the president bitter
ly the World and the Sun but all
that Mr. Roosevelt Bald was or all
that he was quoted as saying that if
the conditions in Wall street were as
rotten as they appeared to be he had
no apology to malj? for having exposed
them. A Nebraska man who is not at
all friendly, politically speaking, either
to Mr. Bryan or to Mayor Dahluiiui
was present when the president made
his statement and stands ready to in
dorse all that the mayor of Omaha
has sa Id on the subject. It Is possible,
of course, that Mr. Dahlman will have
his name added to the lor& list of
members of the Ananias club; but, aft
er all, there seems to be no reason why
Mr. Roosevelt should take such action.
Mr. Bryan has been saying that the
Wall street panic was not due to any
thing said or done by the president,
Init rather to the methods of financier

panies which had aroused general pub
lie suspicion of the integrity of the big
figures in the street. If Mr. Roosevelt
can say that he exposed these methods,
one sees no reason why he should not
boast of it. The only attacks made up
on hlin are made by the well recog
nized organs of high finance in New
York. These attacks will not hurt.
What might hurt would be his talking
In one way in private and another iu
public. There will be rather a close
watch kept to discover whether he is
going to repudiate the Dahlman inter
view or not. It would be unwise for
him to do it, as it expresses a some

The Political Game of Chance.
Only a few weeks ago the more
righteous ieople of the land were re
buking the president for permitting
the senators from South Dakota to
cast lots for the selection of certain
public officials whose appointments
were In the bauds of the president. It
happened that the two senators were
not on the very best terms of friend
ship, and it is hard to discover what
better method the president could have
adopted to make a fair division of
spoils between them. Of course it
doesn't sound like the earlier Theodore
Roosevelt, the famous civil service re
former, the member of the civil service
commission. But with advancing years
he has become, like his friend Mr. Har
rimau. a practical man, and the mere
question of fitness for office seems not
to npieal to him quite as much as the
long or the short straw held in the
hst of a senator trying to take care or

were assigned purely by chance.
The new otfice building is going to

Prohibition In the District.
One of the first measures to be press
ed after cougress reconvenes in Jan-
nary wWCIie the one providing to make
the District of Columbia -dry." It
is going to have some strength. It will
be opposed by the District commission
ers and by most of the proierty own
ers in Washington. Today the Capital
City exacts from its liquor dealers the
heaviest license tax of any city outside
of Boston. It has within the borders
of the District three extensive prohi
bition territories. No liquor is sold at
the cnpitol nor at any point facing the
capitol park. But the demands of the
extremists for complete prohibition is
Influencing many memlers of con
gress. The argument does not seem j
logical, lecause the man from North
Dakota who comes to congress and
votes to regulate the morals of the
people of the District of Columbia can
not lelieve in home rule, cannot l
lieve in local self government. If con
gress shall ultimately determine to
leave the question to a vote T the
District, it may le fair enough.
Washington has more nonresident eiti
eens than any city in the United
States. There are more people who
live here, in fact, but whose Interests
are largely elsewhere than could le
readily enumerated. Nevertheless if
congress should submit the. question
of prohibition to a vote of the people
of the capital there could le no Issue
raised as to its propriety. It would be
time then, to argue before a Jury of

or the wrongfulness of the proposition.

A Home Made Happy by Chamber
' Iain's Cough Remedy.
About two months ago our baby girl
had measles which settled on her
lungs and at last resulted in a severe
attack of bronchitis. We had two doc
tors but no relief was obtained. Every
body thought she would die. I went
to-eight different stores to find a cer
tain remedy which had been recom
mended to me and failed to get it,
when one of the storekeepers insisted
that I try Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy. I did so and our baby is alive
and well today. George W. Spence.
