MONDAY . AUGUST 32, 1904
Colonel Ferdinand V. Peck, of Chicago, one of the leading spirits of the
World's Fair there, and commissioner general to the Paris Exposition, recent
ly concluded a visit to St. Louis and is extravagant in his praise of the com
pleteness and extent of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. Especially was
he surprised at the extensive display in the Palace of Agriculture. "No
such presentation of agricultural exhibits has ever been made in the world,"
said Col. Peck, $h discussing what the Palace of Agriculture contained. "I
have attended AH the Expositions of any Importance that have been given
in this country and Europe, and the agricultural exhibits, even in those where
agriculture was made a specialty did not even approximate what may be
seen in the Department of Agriculture here at the World's Fair. I recall
nly two or three exhibits at the other Expositions that I have attended
-which measured up to the average of the exhibits in the Palace of Agricul
ture. Here there are scores above the average. The foreign countries have
contributed more largely to this branch of Exposition work than ever before,
and their exhibits are of incalculable value in many ways. Whoever is in
terested in agricultural science in any way should see the World's Fair
Agricultural exhibit. I do not believe any such valuable display will ever
again be gotten together." What Col. Peck says of the Palace of Agricul
ture would apply to almost all the great structures which have been reared
to house the world's exhibits in every branch of human industry and en
deavor. o

If the Tourist Committee desires to
take up oft repeated suggestions that J
its campaign should be devoted to .
securing permanent settlers rather j
than transient visitors, it would seem '
that there should be little difficulty in '
1 making a success of the plan, if the highly concentrated liquid
possibilities at this end can only be shown to be satisfactory. Every time
the United States Government opens good lands for settlement there is such
a rush of applications that the crowd develops into a veritable army and mili
ftary force is needed to handle the situation and keep order. There are ap
parently thousands upon thousands of Americans wildly anxious to get hold
f land that is productive, and settle on it. The great question is as to the
possibilities of raising and marketing produce.
Recently the federal government announced the opening of 382,000 acres
f land in the Rosebud reservation, South Dakota. The efforts of no promo
tion committee were needed to bring settlers. There was a rush of applica
tions that made it necessaryfor the government to adopt the lottery system,
leaving chance to settle which of the thousands of citizens applying should
get land and which should draw blanks. The terms were $1 per acre down
.and seventy-five cents per acre for four years. The 382,000 acres were
divided into 160 acre lots, so that there were over two thousand of them.
All were taken on the spot. The only requirement except the nominal I
payments is that the holders shall settle on and cultivate the land. Those 1
disappointed in getting land on these terms number thousands. If Hawaii
lias anything to offer them, it should be easy to reach them. They want to
settle on land they can call their own, but it must be land that is productive
and has a near market easily reached. In the present conditions of Hawaii j
coads'and transportation facilities, it is doubtful whether the territory can
meet the demands, though of course roads and transportation would improve '
5-ylth need for improvement. "

on the spot seem to have taken a very
prominent part In the affair. There
must be many more British war vessels
on the scene than there are American
and Great Britain's Interests at Shang
hai are greater, yet as the cable reads
AU over the country there appear to be thousands of men, married and un
jmarried, who have enough means to establish themselves on small farms.
In less than a year there will be thriving cities in the great Rosebud tract,
-just as such cities have grown up in Oklahoma. There is no reason except
that of distance why the same class of people would not come here, and the
.matter of distance is not a hard one to overcome. alwavs nrovidine that we

Exclusion act business? Of course the United States has no vast population
f cheap laborers, or laborers of any kind, who want to settle in China, but
he has a large and increasing traveling population and undoubtedly a growth
n American business houses in China is looked for. The average American
usiness man would cut a sorry figure, perhaps as sorry as the unlucky
hinese doing battle with our immigration bureau, if required to qualify
or landing in China as Chinese qualify to land here.
Imagine an American citizen arriving at Shanghai and being herded away
om other travelers to be examined by Chinese officials as to his right to
Thd. Imagine him being examined and cross-examined as to all sorts of
?tails of his life, his ancestry, his business and his intentions, and all the
lille kept even from communication with shore until he had passed the
st, not even allowed to shout good-day to other white men on the wharf.
uppose the unlucky American to nave been norn in cnina ana
be returning after a visit to the states. Imagine him having then to prove
s Chinese birth and former residence by two witnesses, not American.
r, in the cases of those already in the country, conceive them all calling at
me great Chinese bureau of registration and being photographed as if for
'gigantic national rogues' galleyer and each told that if he were ever found,
der any circumstances, without a certificate bearing a photo and a lot of
comprehensible Chinese characters, he would be subject to summary de-
Vrtation. Imagine Americans being told they could not hold property in
ina. Conceive the American in a Chinese court of law, listening
a. Chinese judge, gravely laying it down as one of the principles of Clii-
se jurisprudence that an American was not to be believed under oath
cl that any man who would as soon believe an American as a Chinese is a
ol. Finally fancy a Chinese Congress enacting into a law of the nation,
doctrine that American testimony in a court of law required the cor
poration of Chinese witnesses.
II this would of course be impossible. No one can conceive a white race

f'?s have the power to resist them. Yet it is what we are forcing upon
Ihlnese all the time. From the standpoint of an impartial, unprejudiced
ver, It Is doubtful whether there Is a statute on the hooks of the Chi-
emnlre more barbarous than some of the provisions of our own en-
ncd Chinese exclusion law. It has been known to operate to tear litis-

It would be Just like the Russians
to declare that the destruction by the
Japanese of the cruiser cruiser Novlk
was Noviktbry.
The situation at Shanghai with the
Russian cruisers there refusing to dis
arm and a Japanese torpedo boat ready
for action is fraught with all sorts of
dangers to the peace of the world. The
average person If asked what power 'Is
responsible for maintaining the neutral
ity of Shanghai would probably reply
off hand that China was but the repy
would be Incorrect. There are no'
less than three Shanghais, all distinctly
defined. First there is the Chinese
city, a walled plac of many hundreds
of thousands cX people and of almost
as many smells. Next It Is the French
city, a concession which offers many
attractions to the visitor and then
comes the territory known officially as
"the Shanghai Municipal Corporation."
It Is In this latter tract that all of the
consulates, other than the French, are
located. It is praotloaMy a republic on
an international basis, or rather a mild
despotism with the "chairman of the
corporation" as Us deapot. Its terri

have no right whatever to interfere
without Joint action with the vessels of
the other powers and it is not to be
conceived thut the senior ofiloer of the
American forces would make any such
mistake. The situation, '-with all its
dangers, is a perfectly plain one. The
Russian ships must be anchored In that
part of the "Whang' Po rlver'whlch Is
under the control of the Shanghai cor
poration, for they were off the
French concession or the Chinese city
there would be no cause for Interna
tional Interference. If the ItussJans
refuse to dismantle they will violate
the neutrality of the port and will con
sequently put an affront on all of the
powers othe'r than France. It is not
to be Imagined that the Japanese will
open hostilities In the port under these
conditions 'for Shanghai Is always
crowded with shipping and the idea of
a fight there Is not to be entertained.
Still the matter may culminate In some
Hort of a conflict and if It does there
would seem reason to believe that the
trouble in Shanghai will be the bolt to
bring down the Hoavens.
