Him, Which Onuses Senator Till

Just before tim tin Ked States
Sonni o adjourned Tuesday Senator
Aldrich received a letter from Sec
rotary Cortelyou explaining the de
lay that has been experienced in his
reilly to the resolution calling on
him for information concerning the
recent Panama canal bond Issue and
tho lotter was promptly laid before
the senate. Karl lor In tho day Sena- 1
tor Tillman indulged In caustic, com
ment upon what he characterized
as the secretary's apparent "diso- 1
bed lonee" to a sonato resolution.
In his letter Mr. Cortelyou said:
"1 am sorry that there should

"Nothing yet," responded the vice t

seems strange that, tho secretary of

Chairman Aldrich of tho finance
committee, who was out of tho room i
when Mr. Tillman made tho inquiry,
reentered tin? room at this juncture,
just aa Senator Platt suggested that
ho bo called.
"Wo aro told," said Mr. Tillman,
"that Secrotary Cortelyou is Ul, but
ho was not too lil to go to Now York
t.o mako a speech. It seems extra
ordinarily phenomenal that wo can
not get a report from him."
"The fact ls," said Mr. Aldrich.

Mr. Tillman. "As soon as possible

"Those of us who knew Mr. Cor
telyou," sahl Mr. Aldi ich, "know
that he ls in ver delinquent In his
public duties, and I think if Ibo sen
ator from South Carolina would find
an opportunity to talk this nial tor
over Willi him he would be satisfied."
" M (lld not lake that long to issue
tho bonds," insisted Mr. Tillman.
"Thal was a simple maller," re
fortod Mr. Aldrich. "The senator
from South Carolina does not realize
that ho can pul down on paper in

"This is purely an executive function 1

I think they will show, that tho sec- 1
rotary of the treasury has utterly 1

laudable as it may have boon, to

Mr. Tillman then turnod to Mr J

We often meei Iii our dreams peo- f:
lo who, as we well know, have long ()
eon dead. Vet, somehow, we are (
ot in the least surprised. We talk q
) them, ami hear (hem speak, as if
[ wore quite a matter of course. Why ,.,
hould this lie so. Professor Haer |
ays it is simply became ghosts are ;l
ho most natural kind ot' persons (o ;l

lt is in the realm of the Hereafter v
hose people dwell; a realm in which j,
so Professor Haer believes) we must ?,
onie day take up our ow n residence. ?,
t seins to be a country of shadows. (]
int, unfortunately, the glimpses we
i>t of it aro too fleeting to enable us t
roporly to judge. Or rather, lt c
light be said that, for some reason
ot easy to explain, our waking mein- ;J
rles of our experiences in that mys- f,
I I ions region are so feeble and In- j,
1st Incl, save in rare imdances, that
hey serve only to puzzle and confuse ,
ur minds. i
Tin- dream folk, who dwell in the 0
md beyond the threshold of waking v
'lusciousness, appear (o be cheerful ^
noilgh. If we can judge of the coll- s
ilion of the dead from what we see (,
I' them When WO visit the stl'UllgC 0

oem that they are otherwise than (.
tippy. On the contrary, (hey are j

lt may lie said that lllOsi of th*' "
copie wo meet in dreams are living ,
ndividuals. Yes, undoubtedly, but v
ot (he Ivlng persons themselves. ,
hese likewise (says Professor Haer) t,
re phantoms. For the living have .
.hosts a:, well as the dead. What we J
nean hy a ghost is the soul of a hu- j
nan being dead or alive, made vidi- s
de to tho eye. Such phenomena an- ,
arely, if ever, obsborved, in waking

but many are friends of our waking
lives, and Sometimes (bey aro near]

changes of recoil cotions in regard to
such moetings might bo made after
wards, between yourself and your
neighbor Smith, for example, follow
ing a dream conversation in which
you two engaged-woro lt not for
the excessively fleeting and frag
meutary oharactor of such memories,
which haston to escape us evon us wo
are trying to rcall thom.
One thing fairly cortain in that the
ghosts of tho doad hnvo no power to
communicate with us, unless it ho in
dreams. If they possossod such pow
er, thoy would undoubtedly exorciso
lt; yot (putting aside all tho phenom
ena of so-caled "spiritualism" as
hopelessly discredited) they give us
no opportunity of the kind, though
wo would so eagerly grasp it.
Deep down in the human mind
Lhere exists a belief that tho dead,
gOlierally speaking, aro hostile and
langerons lo the living. Hence tho
lread which will withhold not only a
-hlld, but almost any grown poison
)f either sex from passing alono
hough a graveyard at night. Indeed,
I is safo to say that nothing In tho
>vorh|, ur out of it. is regarded with
niel? universal fear as a ghost -Ibis
oo. notwithstanding tho fact that no
llithenUcatod instance ls on record
n which a specie or apparition of
my kind did harm to a living oroa
ure. Tho sttporstltutien in question
s doubtless an inheritance from our
nest remote ancestors, who believed
hat tho dead wore liable to assume
ho guise and role of malignant de
ntis; but lt seems strange that mod
trn enlightenment should not have
lono away with BO nonsensical a no
Oddly enough, however, when in ''
mr dreams wo encounter the ghosts '
>f the dead, we aro unterrifled. To '
lo so, indeed, appears quilo natural '
iud a matter of course. For under '
melt conditions the point of view is 1
dtattged. We ourselves ?ire phau '
oms likewise (according to Profos
?or Hiter), abd wo meei them, those 1
?Ibers, on an equal fooling. They
ire liol afraid of us, and why should 1
ve he afraid ol" I hem ?
Al the hot lom ol' the ghost-fear is
i dread of the mysterious, lite un- '
mown and tho intangible. Hut, 1
V'hetl your soul lins made a ti-mpor
irv escape through Hie mind's hack '
loor, it finds il sid I' in a world where, 1
s one might say. all the relations of
binga aro altered. It has arrived, 1
o to say, behind tho scones, and (as ?
?udor circumstances on the stage) *
he mystery becomes mere maller of 1
