The following sketch the conspirators chose, from their point cution of their reputed gigantic plot with the murder of this man: J It was in prosecuting the conspirators who assassinated Alexander III that Von Plehve first came into prominence. He was public prosecutor of Warsaw in the seventies, and showed so much ability that he was sent up to St. Petersburg. He soon became a Alexander's assassination he devoted himself to stamping out nihilism. He made the most perfect organization for the detection and punishment of crime that Russia has ever known. And he never showed mercy. Nihilism wilted before him, and in three years he has hunted down and punished 1 every member of the gigantic band that made czar-killing a possibility at St. Petersburg. It was during this campaign that he formed his close association with M. Pobedonosteff, Procurator of the Holy Synod, the Czar's personal representa tive in matters of religion and the government of the Russian church. These two men laid their reactionary campaign together. They plied their trade as extirpators of everything liberal and enlightening with the abilities of trained statesmen and the devotion of fanatics. Old Russia became their idol and their model. De Witte and his program for improvements and education, his enlightened system of administration, became the bane of their existence.

Some people probably read these instructions and may possibly try to live up to them, but the main thing wrong is that they consist of hard and fast rules which most people could not begin to live up to for any length of tim.e One set of experts sets out to prove that the secret of health and happiness lies in dietary matters and the weird menus which are sometimes printed are the result of their cogitations. Others have the physical culture idea in such bad form that the wonderful pictures' in the big Sunday supplements are to be found. They depict young women and old women doing all sorts of circus "stunts" in order to become or to remain beautiful. It is bad enough to lose beauty, but if a middle aged matron has to preserve herself by donning bloomers and doing the splits perhaps it would be well to let beauty go. But the worst of these unauthorized advisers are those who lay down a time for every particular thing that unfortunate readers must do. In all of these cases the advisor seems to have based views on his or 'er own case and to have remained blissfully unconscious of the fact that there are others- What is the use of telling people who have to rush away to work at an early hour that they must not hurry over their meals or in advising the hard-worked head of an interesting but expensive family that "worry" is the cause of unlinppiness? It seems unfortunate, but the fact remains, that there are just as many unhappy people in the world as there were before the Sunday papers started to print rules for happiness, and there fore the same papers began to give instructions on how to iron out wrinkles. Perhaps there were more. ,0. Hawaii And Alaska Compared j u t , 8nld territory of the United States, and its interests have been carefully looked after by the home government, while Alaska is governed principally by local Judges and has, until lately, been almost altogether neglected by congress.

In Hawaii industrial conditions are almost stagnant; in Alaska they are booming all the time." Just why two-thirds of Hawaii's com merce should be "taken out" of the reckoning does not appear. Even though it is sugar it Is commerce. The fact remains that tho federal govern ment paid a big price for Alaska and has got nothing out of it for years, while Hawaii was acquired without tho expenditure of anything and kept up the immense commerce she had had for years before tho acquisition. No nation ever made a better bargain than the United States by annexation of Hawaii, considering the matter from a financial point of view. A comparison of the revenue per capita which Hawaii pays into the national treasury with that of Alaska places Alaska, as It places ev ery other part of the country, far be hind Hawaii.

Such methods would ' certainly make matters more than interesting for the victims'of such attacks, and if they are adopted some one will have to try to find something stronger than Sherman's saying "war is hell." The conditions in Colorado continue to be most extraordinary. Here Is a happening of July 29: "Cripple Creek, Colo., July 29. Patrick McCarvel, ono tf the men who were deported to Kan sas by the military early in June, re turned to Victoria, where he owns property, Including a large hall and business block valued at $25,000. When McCarvel disembarked from the train he was taken In charge by Major H. A. Naylor, acting city marshal. McCarvel was allowed to attend to some business affairs and was then placed on board the first outgoing train, with an order that In future police protection would not be afforded him should he again re : jrn. McCarvel was originally deport ed for openly expressing sympathy with the miners' union and denouncing acts of Governor Poabody and his military subordinates." This seems more like Russia than the United States. It Is to be presumed that such measures are a necessity to restore order In the strike region. But It Is no wonder that Gov ernor Peabody, who is responsible for the drastic scheme, 1s the center of a hot controversy.
