Then we were reminded of one of the big circuses, "the grandest and largest now traveling," when a. i. ustebee ana unas uoieman appeared upon the scene with tri pod and camera and the photog raoher's act. Of the real natives of the New World wo had a representative each from the Comanches and Kiowas, who made the life of oarlv settlers in the Lone Star state interesting for vears by their many raids.

Since Presidont McKin:ey's return froin the west be baa beeu givon con. niderable attention to tbe preparation of bis annual message to congress Tho urincimd Dart of tbe message will h devoted to consideration of the future of the islands which have beuome the property of the United States as a result oi tue war. Thn resident will take tbe crouud that these islands shall uot be a bur den, financially or morally, to the United States. He will recommend the orcunization of native recriments to garrison the islands of Cuba and Porto Rico, aud tbe Philippines ana Uuam under tue command or ivmer icau officers. He will nlso recommend that sen arate tuiiff systeuis shall be provided for these islands, so ns to make them Stir supporting. He will also strontrlv favor the budding of the Nicaragua canal uu tier American ausmces. Tbe president will recommend that Porto Kico. tUe ruiUppine croup fliiam und CuLa. until un indepen deut government can be estublhbetl they ubull be treated as colonics ami not iih territories, like Alaska. He will suggest that as the people iu iIicho iHlaud oiOL'ress in civilization aud iu their uu Jerstandiug of Ameri can ideas, there may come a time iu ilia f ut..re wbon tbe United States will be willing either to unuex theHC territories us constitutional prts of this C'niutry or establish indepen dent forms of government thereon, uudor the supervision tif the Ameri can federal government. A highly importuut, feature of the president's recommendations will be the BiiL'ryestion that 80 para te tariff systems be provided for tbe differ ent isluuds. The president does not believe that it would be wise to estubltsb free trade between the United States and these islands and he will take tbe sround that the American pioducers must not be allowed to suffer as a result oi tue expansion of American territory, nnd that they honld be protected from the cheap labor and climatic advantages of the islands. Tim nreaident will recommend that the croverntnent of these islands . - - , , , . ., be eft for some years at east i the whom, he will suy, a good, clean ad ministration of ufluirs may be ex pected.
