WU ON STREET CAP, ETHICS.
Chinese Minister Urges Countrymer
to Give Up Seats to Women.
Chinese of New York city will in fn
ture be sure to rise and givi their
seats to women on the street cars,
even if all Americans do not do so, for
Wu Ting Fang, minister to the United
States from China recently to!d them
that by following this custom they
would make no mistake.
Mr. was the central figure at a
mass meeting held in the theater iii
Chinatown to aid the New -York Con
f ucian association, which will teach
the morals and the precepts of the il
Iustrious sage. The minister, clad in
oriental costume, appeared for the tirst
time in the quarter in response to au
Invitation from leading residents.
Mr. Wu indorsed the Confucian as
sociation, which is planning to erect
a $100,000 building, with libraries,
gymnasium and baths, something like
a branch of the Young Men's Christian
association ,'- Although the- ethics . of
Confucius will be taught there. uon ob
jection will be made to Christians
Joining it ;
"Wu Ting Fang said that he was not
so particular about the kind 1 of re
ligion his fellow countrymen embraced
provided that it was a good one and
that they followed its precepts.
"In the same way," he continued.
with au engaging smile, "I commend
to you all good American customs. One
thing in which you may well emulate
your American neighbors, my breth
ren. Is In respect for women. I would
6ee the social state of women improve
In our own country, and I think it Is
gradually doing so. Here it is the
custom for men when in a street car
to give their seats to women. It is re
spectful and courteous, and I suggest
to all of you that you observe tul3
very commendable course.
- "In fact, my brethren, you will also
find that the American habit of pay
ing good heed to what your wives say
to you will be of benefit to you. The
advice of a good woman profits much.
It will keep you from the excesses of
gambling and also from the use. of
tobacco, which is not good for you
and gives you a shocking breath'

Achievements of the Rear Admiral In
His Active Naval Service.
It falls to few men in the naval serv
ice to achieve the reputation of signal
ability in its various branches enjoyed
by Rear Admiral A. S. Crownlnshleld,
who recently died in Philadelphia.
Aboard ship, in command of training
vessels, as chief of the bureau of navi
gation, as ensign facing the enemy's
guns in front of Fort Fisher, in all
places where duty called in peace or
war, he gained honors- and friends and
ofttimes the praise of the department.
He was born in New York utate
March 14. 1843, and was appointed a
naval cadet In 1SG0 and graduated
three years later. Promotion to master
came within two years, to lieutenant
within three and to lieutenant com
mander within five. In. 1S80 he be
came commander, captain in 1?'J4,
chief of the bureau of navigation with
the relative rank of commodore in
1897 and rear admiral in 1902.
He saw active service at the begin
ning of his career. This was when
ensign , on the United States steam
sloop Ticonderoga, which participated
in both attacks on Fort Fisher in 1SG4 i
and ISflo. t or this service lie was
highly commended. He afterward com

On April 20. 1902. Rear Admiral
Crownlnshield relinquished his duties
as chief of the bureau of. navigation
and member of the general board and
departed for the European station to
hoist his flag on the battleship Illinois,
which took part In the naval demon
stration Incident to the coronation of
King Edward. Secretary Long compli
mented him-upon bis administration of
the bureau. . In the five years he had
made many notable reforms. He was
a member of the board of officers
which recommended the amalgamation
of the line and engineer corps, which
was enacted into law. As a member
of the naval war board during the war
with Spain he displayed sound judg
ment and knowledge of war conditions
which were of great value to the de
partment in the distribution of vessels
and the final cornering of the Spanish
squadron at Santiago. Finding it im
possible at this time to procure enough
men for the navy on the const the rear
admiral suggested and Secretary Long
adopted the suggestion that landsmen
be enlisted and trained. In a very
short time thousands were receiving
an education In the duties of men-of-war's
On leaving active service, in March,
1903, the rear admiral retired to the
Anchorage, as he called his villa at
Seal Harbor, Me., where, with his wife,

Best Trainers to be Employed at Re

to Break Steeds.

cavalry service, is au experiment to
be tried out by the United States gov

are to be shipped to old Fort Reno and
given lessous in "what to do." This
is the order of J. B. Aleshire. quarter
master general of the United States
Instead of a general military post
picturesque, old Kort Reno is to be
made a "remount station." a place
where new mounts will be provided
for cavalrymen, says an El Reno corre
spondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
H is proposed to turn out more than
1,600 head of horses and mules each
year ready for the military. The cav
alrymen who have been . stationed at
the fort have gone to other posts, and
just as soou as stables can be built the
horse school will open. By July 1 the
three-year-olds are expected to be on
the reservation, and the' taming will
begin. England and France have re
mount stations, but Uncle Sam has
never attempted them before. If the
one at Fort Reno proves a success it
is probable that all horses and mules
In the United States will hereafter go
through their course In school "before
graduating Into regular army life.
"A horse usually lasts about , seven
years In the service."' said Captain
Letcher Tlardeman, who is at Fort
Reno arranging for the opening of
the school. "A mule Is good for ten
years. The contractors who have fur
nished the army horses nave been buy
ing them- between the ages of four and
eight years. -Our experiment will be
with .three-Tea r-olds.

We don't care for any man who would
mount a tbree-yenr-old. sock n pair of

it's broken in spirit and, broken in

on the plains, but It won't do for the
United States, array. 'A' good cavalry
horse must have a cavalryman's spirit
Nor will the cavalrymen themselves do
the breaking. This work will be in the
hands of civilians, under the supervi
sion of army officers. .
"The best trainers we can find will
be employed . After the horses hare
been-, broken, cavalrymen, will " tench

to be roughly handled. Kind treatment

"We believe there.: Is economy In a

but by. taking them as three-year-olds j
more service from" them than when we
took them four to - eight years old.;
They may be bought cheaper too. A',
rebellious, unwilling horse can almost
disrupt a cavalry movement, and the
sooner it has 'I. C inspected, con
demnedbranded on Its side the bet
ter off that troop of cavalry Is."
Captain Hardeman says that not a
great many horses are condemned for
viclonsness, but occasionally one eutire
ly unfit for nse is got rid of.
, About sixty, mea will be employed at
the Fort Reno station, and they expect
to break in 800 or 9()0 head of horses
and from 300 to 400 head of mules each
year. The old barrnx-ks at Fort Reno
have practically been abandoned for
months. The fort is on a reservation'
over which bands of Cheyenne and
Arapahoe Indians still rove, 'but they
commit no depredations. The Darling
ton agency is just a few miles distant

which might prevent him from draw

too, the Iudian police, mounted .on fast
ponies, who feel the 'Importance of
their blue uniforms and brass buttons.
Captain Hardeman recently finished
checking tip the supplies which have
been stored In the old fort and ha
shipped them away to other depots.
Only a few caretakers are now at the
post and their chief duty lies in wan
dering about the deserted barracks,
waiting fwr the new stables to be built
and the horses to come. Lively times
are expected then.
Afraid ot Safety Pins.
It Is not e;rr;y to realize the bondage
to fear under which barbarous people
live on account of their superstitious
ignorance, Mrs. Theodorf Bent tells
In her book, "Southern Arabia." how
she tried to make a preseut of a safety
pin to n native woman and what a
storm of indignation was occasioned
by her act On our arrival at our
camping ground and while we' were
waiting for our tents to be ready I was
surrounded by women all masked.
They seemed highly astonished at a
safety pin which I was taking out. so
I gave or, rather, offered It. to an old
woman near me. She wanted to take
the pin. but several men rushed be
twcea us and roared at us both and
prevented my giving it to her. I stood
