RALLY Rf9WD THE FLAG.
Rights of the American People at Stake. ALASKAN FRONTIER PUSHED BACK Great Britain Has Acquired a Strip o.ne Hundred Miles Wide In the Poreupine Eistrict-Advancing To ward Tide Water by Leaps and Bounds-Time For Action. The servility and cringing of the Re publican administration to Great Brit ain have arosed even the Washington Post to protest, and this is what it says: "We make our compliments to Mr. George Miller, attorney at law, Eugene, Or. Mr.. George Miller seems to be the kind of a man we need aloug our frontier, especially that which touches British America. We need ibont T5,000 of him, stationed in small detachments at very brief intervals *nd so equipped as to be able to shoot dowxi British flags instead of resorting to the comparatively respectful meth od adopted by Mr. Miller. "We hav e needed such men in large *umbers for some years past. We need them more and more urgently with each new demonstration of the Anglo ilaniac policy of our government, with each new modus vivendi and each ad ditional recrudescence of the high joints. We have been dwelling in an atmosphere of affectionate internation al gush, under cover of which British encroachments and American groveling have gone steadily along, with gov ernment approval on either side. Eng land has buried our seal fisheries rights In the tomb we call the high joint com mission, she has acquired a slice of our Alaskan territory about the size of the state of Rhode Island In the name of a modus vivendi, she has resur rected, with the eager assistance of our state department, the long dead and thrice dishonored Clayton-Bulwer treaty of 1850, she has put our whole official establishment under a spell of flunkeyism, and we have received in return for all this the banqueting of a few American tradesmen and politi cians, some inexpensive guff in the London newspapers and a puddle or two of British slobber, signifying noth ing. "But the Amern=n people ought to have something to say to this. Their rights are at stake. In the Porcupine district, where our frontier was pushed back 100 miles, Americans by the thou sand were expatriated against their wills, to their shame and indignation. 'And now we have from the Skaguay News an account of the British aggres sion and systematic insolence which provoke.d Mr. George Miller to check the marchl of Englnrnd's pirate flag last sweek. It will repay perusal: "'The question which bids fair to assume international proportions as soo~adhe'rews oV It can reidh Ottei isand Waghington is being discussedl todW fth the mass of sentiment in favor of the man who hauled down the flag. On this strip of land, whieh the .United States has occupied undisputed since the days of transfer in 1807. the Canadian officials have gradually en croached, unrestrained by the Ameri can government. "'By leaps and bounds the Canadian customs house advanced toward tide water-from Tagish to Bennett, then to Log Cabin and lastly to the sum mit- and when the customs ensign of Canada was hoisted at Skaguay it is small wonder that some John Brown would not wait for the action from Washington and cut down the flag.'" Up,: the whole, ft was well he didn't wait for "action" from Washington. Had he done so the British flag would have moved proudly on to tide water .without let or hindrance. Action from Washington, when it interferes with any of England's schemes, has not been a feature of our iaational policy since Cleveland trod upon the advancing foot and called, "Stop thief!" in a tone that made Great Britain gasp. What we want and must have, unless we propose to surrender everything that England covets, is action of the kind Mr. George Miller gate us at Skaguay. We want just such men all along the line-want them armed not only with good guns, but with the knowledge that a few millions of fight ing Americans are behind them. They cannot too soon meet this insolent British encroachment with the shot that will lead to a rehabilitation of our frontier and our self respect. But what can we explect of the lead ers of the Republican party, who are Intent on commercialism in partnership with their London associates? * Chandler's Easy Job.

The commission will sit dur ing the whole of the summer, but a clerk or two will do the business, the commissioners finding the granite hills of New Hampshire or the seacoast re sorts more cool and comfortable than Washington. Depew Will Tell Us. .That vain old gentleman, Senator De pew, before he left for Europe boasted of hIs friendship with the two or three men ini each country that control polit Ical affairs.

Justice Brewer Thinks England and America Can Bring It About. Unless David Josiah Brmver, associ ate justice of the United States su preme court, is too sanguine in his pre dictions the day is near when there will be no more war and all disputes between nations will be settled by ar bitration. Justice Brewer believes that the two countries in whose power it lies to accomplish this desirable result are the United States and Great Brit ain. The Anglo-Saxon nations should act In concert, according to the learned justice, in bringing the rest of the world to a proper appreciation of the horrors of war. "These are the two nations, the Unit ed States and Great Britain, that have been more -conspicuous in war than any other, and it Is natural that they should be foremost in the efforts at peace. I believe their efforts will be crowned with the glory of success and that they will bring about settlement by arbitration." So reads a portion of a recent address by the justice. In connection with Justice Brewer's remarks -abqut the necessity of preserv Ing a good understanding with Crest Photo by BeU, Washington. aUST1CE DAVID J. BEWEI. Britain in order to further the pence of the world it is interesting to note that many Britons hold the same opinion. Last year a number of prominent Eng lishmen called into being what - they term the Atlantic union. This is a non political, nonpartisan organhzrtion, formed with the purpose of drawing together people from the United States and those from Great Britain and its colonies. It is to strengthen the bond of union by ties of personal friendship among Individual members. The At lantic union is social and does not con cern itself with the greater matters of International politics. It hopes to at le~ ends bilaarc as private hsiait uthe giving o semipublic functions, like dinners, re ceptions and visits to places of historic or artistic interest. Much progress has already been made by the union in England, and knowledge of it Is spreading on this side of the water. Among the English members are a number of prominent men, such as Dean Farrar, Dean Hole, the Rev. Dr. Stopford Brooke, Lord Coleridge and Sir Michael Foster. The late Sir Walter Besant was a member of the executive counciL. A CHARMING PLAYER, iss sherrod Is to Act With Her Hus band During the Coming Season. Among the most vivacious and good looking .f next season's players is Dor othy Sherrod, who is to have a leading part In "A Capitol Comedy." This is a new play, written by Paul Wilstach, that deals with the humorous side of Washington life. Miss Sherrod will be in the company. supporting her hus band, Tim Murphy, the popular come dian. Both Mr. Murphy and Miss Sherrod have gained their professional reputa tions in the farce comedies of the late Charles IH. Hoyt. Miss Sherrod made her greates: hit in the part of Bossy in "A Texas Steer," probably the most Photo by Baker's Art Gallery, Columbus, 0. DOnOTHY suzIunoD. laughable of all Mr. Hoyt's produc tions. In the same play Mr. Murphy was cast as Maverick Brander, a role written especially for him by Mr. Hoyt. Miss Sherrod succeeded the late Flora Walsh, Mr. Hoyt's wife. Her lever acting is expected to gain much praise for her during, the coming sea Von. BEAN DISEASES. Fungous Troubles and Remedies. Points of Bean Growing. Even the humble garden beans arc not exempt from fungous enemies ,which have so asserted themselves as to become troublesome to the growers of this useful vegetable. Since 180-4 the New Jersey station has been study Ing diseases of truck crops, and beans have received a full share of attention. In bulletin 151 seven fungous diseases of beans are considered, namely: 1. Th<- anthranose or pod spot. 2. The bean bacteriosis. 3. The lima bear mildew. 4. The lima bean pod blight 5. The bean rust. 6. The bean leal spot. 7. The bean leaf blotch. All of these were met with in the field studies of the diseases. but the first three, being the most common anc serious enemies, have been the subjects for special treatment. Tlge bean seed is often infested with the anthracnose and becomes thereby I ~ AN'TIRACNOSED BEAN PODS. .a prominent, if not the chief, means o tiding over the inactive or winter sea son. The same is doubtless true witl acterlosis. It has been shown that soaking th( seed in fungicides, while destructive t( ithe fungus, is not always without il effect upon the seed itself. F;xpert ments differ upon this point, and fur ther investigations are here f&eded. There Is only one opinion as to th desirability of discardig all dlease seed bef onl at w' althy is 'si en conse upoi the same land, two crops eh reasor that the anthracnose is checkid b; fungicides. The same is true .oi th bacteriosis. The bordeaux mixture ha proved of substantial value as a ren: edy for bean mildew. While .the experimental -.spraying have been at intervals of ten days, I s not recommended that they be mor than three in number for the ordinar; wax sorts. For pole varieties or an; tthat require the whole season spra) -ngs once in three weeks would pe: haps be most profitable, and yet th distribution of the drenching rain .hould determine the times of the ar plications.

TO NAME THE TRUXTUN. Descendant of Famous Naval Oicer Will Christen Ier Namesake. To Miss Isabelle Truxtun of Norfolk has been given the honor of conferring her name on a vessel of the United States navy. Miss Truxtun will smash the usual bottle of champagne over the bow of the torpedo boat destroyer Truxtun, which is nearing completion at Sparrow Point, .ld. She will do this by virtue of her direct descent from Commodore Truxtun, the distin guished naval officer of a century ago.

H lenrik Ibsen, the great Norwegian author and dramatist, is now regaining his strength after -the long and severe illness which at one time seemed likely to be his last. Hie is living quietly at his home in Christiania and expects to resume his literary labors very soon. rIbsen's study Is a plainly furnished room overlooking the street. is desk is always heaped with newspaper clip pings, from which he secures many iIdeas. The enormous correspondence he carries on with women na all coun HE~T.rK IBSEN. tries and climes where his books are read aids him in his studies of broken hearts, of hungry souls. The letters and confessions he receives are filed away as human documents with the newspaper clippings. The method of work of this literary gant.Is interesting, lie Is always In his study from 8 a. m. to 2 p. m. Then he takes a walk, returning at meal tIme, 3 sharp. The rest of the day he devotes to investigation, reading, at the cafe, in the family circle and with Intl mate friends. He loses no opportunity eIto .look into the depths of a storm tossed soul-man's, woman's or child's. If he sees an interesting or sad face In Sthe street, he follows the person at tracting~ his attention and If possible fnds out all abut him or her.
