For chickens and dogs It Is best to
slow down, If possible. One reason for
this is the ethical one thaUydu have no
right whatever to destroy other peo
ple's property. Chickens . and dogs
mean a jjreat deal to farmers who own
them, and they have. f ally as .good a

HEAVY SEA REPORTED TO HAVE
WASHED THE CEMENT WALL
AWAY AT LEPER SETTLEMENT
The landing at Kaktipapa has suifer
ed by the 'heavy weathir of last wwk
The cement bulk head which was used
as a means of shelter to enable the
boats to make landings at Kalaupapa
was undermined by the heuvv seas and
washed away. The bulkhead coilr.psod
News of the accident was brought
by the steamer 'tnwall which arrived
Saturday evening from her run to La
halna, Maul and Molok.U parts. Pur
ser Jerry Birmingham says that so far
as he was able to ascertain no body wt;
or. the cement wall at the tlmo of tho
accident and no body was hurt. I
The Idea of the force of the sea can
be gained from the statement that
when the steamer 'Hawaii was at Ka
laupapa last Tuesday the sea was com
paratively smooth. Two days later the
sea had Increased to such ail extent
that It washed away the. bulkhead.
It will require some' time to replace
the bulk head. Until the damage has
been repaired, boats will find the land
ing 'of freight and passengers at the
Settlement rather a difficult task In
heavy weather. At best even with the
bulkhead as protection, the landing at
TCalaup.ipa Is bad and now that the
bulk-head has 'been washed away, land
ings which under ordinary circumstan
ces would not have ibeen considered
serious can probably not be attempted.
The weather 's good now however
and It Is thought that the Hawaii will
be able to make a landing tomorrow on
her regular run to windward Molokal
ports. Should heavy weatljer set In
however befors the bulk head will have
been completed, and continue for any
length of time, some classes of supplies
at the sstlement might run short.
ONE OF THE NATURAL CURIOSI
TIES tF THE PRAIRIE REGION
At a spot eleven miles southeast of
this p.laS&, says the Oklahoma Capital,
In the, level prairie upland, is an open
ing about forty feet in diameter and
sixty feet In depth. Hy clinging to Its
rocky an'd precipitous walls a person
may descend to the bottom and there,
find the openings .to two caves, one
leading -westward and the other to the
east. For years this cave has been
known as Rock Prairie cave. It is one
of the most striking natural curiosities
in the Chickasaw Nation. The caves
are of unknown length, and through
one rushes a substerranean stream of
great- depth in places and of Icy- cold
ness. Exploring parties have ventured
into these labyrinths for hundreds of
yards, but the danger of becoming lot
has pr.jvented a thorough examination
of the underground passages.
The cuve leading westward is easiest
of access and contains a number of
spacious chambers. One room Is about
seventy feet square and-fifty feet from
the floor to the celling. The lloor is in
structed with huge bowlders. The
darkness and stillness are intense.
Picnic parties sometimes go there
and with ai large bowlder of a
table et their lunch in the glare of
torches that cast uncanny shadowa
along the massive walls.
Timid jierspns hesitate In venturing
into the depths of the eastern cave.

depth estimated to be 200 feet be.'ow
the surface of the ground is" a natural
bridge formed by a thuge stone that
fell across the stream. The water
plunge.i underneath this bridge like a
mill race. A boat can be pulled over
the bridge," however, and launched on
the other side. A'bout 100 feet below
the bridge the stream -widens into a
broad, deep pool, .with a high vaulted
roof. Beautiful stalagmites are stalac

Is dlfllcult. It'Js.tclalmed that this-cave
has been explored Hod a 'mile.
The.atream is believed to find Its out
let at a spring about three miles from
the .entrance to the "cave. This spring
is of' great size and volume and flows
with remarkable swiftness. In rainy
seasons the spring 'bolls and gushes an
if choked with the flood of water that
pours from Its mouth. The stream In
Rock Prairie cave rises when there is
a heavy rainfall in the surrounding
country, and the Increased flow of both
spring and stream at such times is
.taken as evidence that they are con

There Is room for division of senti
ment concerning the dispute and the
manner in which the European powers
are cqmpelllng a settlement. The pre
sent government of Venezuela does not
command the highest degree of sym
pathy and respect. It Is dictatorial,
and is opposed by a. Ittrge- part of tho
Venezuelan people. Its conduct has
not been such as to commend It to the
world. It ought .to pay its debts and
discharge all legitimate obligations
which rest upon It. It cannot hope
to find in the Monroe doctrines or in the
United States a screen ngalnst the
consequences of ill doing. On' the
other hand, it undoubtedly seems to
some rather harsh to expect payment of
claims so peremptorily at the very mo
ment when Venezuela Is embarrassed
with the results of a costly war, and
it may seem arbitrary to do so by such
means. Other countries Including
some In Europe, have delayed to meet
tneir undoubted obligations and to fur-
i nish Indemnity for their misdeeds, nnd

HITTER ARRAIGNMENT Of
MONROE DOCTRINE WHICH IS
CALLED THE MONROE "FICTION"
BERLIN, Jan. 2. Officials of the For
eign Office In the Wllhelmstrasse. In In
terviews given out to German corres
pondents, are extremely bitter over tho
defeat of the German policy In Vene
zuela. It would be an Interesting sym
posium, to say the least, to collect the
venomous editorials which have appear
ed during tho last two weeks in the
German .press directed against Unlteu
States Interference In Venezuela, as It
Is called, although there Is nothing to
Indicate that any other than moral
Influence wna exerted lit Washington
to prevent the powers stepping upon
the "live Monroe doctrine" wire. These
arraignments do not stop at scornful,
reference to tho Monroe doctrine "lie
Hon," but proceed to attack President
Roosevelt; questioning lils motives In
appealing to the powers to submit the
Issues to The Hague tribunal and
charging- the United States with selfish
mntlves to gather the South American
lepubllcs under a union hat when the
proper moment arrives.
A fierce storm Is being raised in tho
press against the Government for
yielding so easily to the proposals of
the Rrltlsh allies and for being "fright
ened Into giving up its plan" by the
jingoistic American press.
The Dresdener Nachrlchten comes out
with strong philippic ngalnst Amerlcnn
Jingoes, against the Monroe dootrlne
nnd ngalnst the "absurdity of Washing
ton's presumption that It is called upon
to protect all South American countries
against European 'aggressions. The
same journal calls for a European al
liance to resist -this American danger.
But what the Dresdener Nachrlchten
says Is mild compared with some of the
bombastic arraignments of the, Monroe
doctrine and the German Government's
weakness In not carrying out its origi
nal designs which may be rend In tho
conservative and democratic press."
