the present edition Is put forth.
As a refutation of the assertion that no
one buys or reads poetry, the Bowen-Mer-rill
Company announces that the first edi

Poems," by Edward UtfiriEiton Valentine,
is entirely exhausted. Mr. Valentine's
verse has been reviewed seriously and
praised in high quarters, and the poetry
loving public showed its appreciation by its
purchases. The book Is temporarily out of
print, but the publishers hope to offer the
new edition within a few weeks.
McCIure, Thlllips & Co. announce a series
of novels for publication this fall which
thc?y will call "First Novel Series." Any
author who has published a book may not

cess with "first novels" that they feel war
ranted in Instituting such a plan of publica
tion. "The Bagged Edge" is the initial
volume, and the author, John T. Mclntyre.
the first author to have his maiden effort
thus cried out to the world. The novel is a
study of ward politics and social life.
An attractive fail list for younger readers
is offered by A. C. McClurg & Co. The
titles include a book of nonsense prose and
verse by Carolyn Wells, called "The Pete

by Edith Ogden Harrison, who is the wife
.f Chicago's mayor, and who makes her
literary dtbut in this volume.

The Sfrlbners will issue this fall a rw w

Dr. David Starr Jordan has in press for
publication by Elder & Shepard, San Fran
cisco, "The Philosophy of Despair," an es
say embodying the reply of science to pessi
mism, taking for his text certain quatrains
of Omar Khayyam. The following selec
tion from his introductory lines will best in
dicate the point of view: "In the presence
of the Infinite problem of life, the voice of
science is dumb, for science is the co
ordinate and corrected expression of human
experience, and human experience must
stop with the limitations of human life.
It Is my purpose here to indicate
ome part of the answer of science to the
philosophy of despair. Direct reply science
has none. We cannot argue against a
(Inger or a poet. The poet sing.- of what he
feels, but science speaks only of what we
know. We feel infinity, but we cannot
know It. for to the highest human wisdom
the ultimate truths of the universe are no
nearer than to the child. Science knows
no ultimate truths."
T1IK nillTII OF THE WEST.
Emerson Hough nnd Hin Story of the
Famo un John Lavr.
Literary Bulletin.
Assuming it to be true that we are all
interested In success, every man his own
first and after that his neighbor's, then
any word about Emerson Hough and his
popular novel, "The Mississippi Bubble,"
must be of the widest interest. For suc
cess Is certainly Mr. Hough's.
Ten years ago he began work on his
story of John Law. Last September he
sent the completed manuscript to his
publishers and the following April, under
the title of "The Mississippi Bubble," the
book was offered to the public. Its recogni
tion was prompt. The reviewers praised it
with an enthusiasm that carried the con
viction of sincerity to the reading public.
The book was bought, read, enjoyed and
recommended. In the June Bookman it
stood third in the list of the six best-selling
books in the United States. In July it was
second and now the August issue of that
magazine has It at the head of the list.
During the ten years in which "The Mis
sissippi Buble" was taking shape, Mr.
Hough spent eight hours. a day at his desk,
earning the salaries paid him by the At
lantic Monthly and Forest and Stream.
Outside office hours he write "The Girl at
the Half-way House," "The Story of the
Cowboy." "The Singing Mouse," and in
numerable articles on ell manner of sub
jects. All this time John Law was ever in
his thoughts and the romance to be built
around him was his chiefest Interest and
concern. Of course, Mr. Hough is pleased
that readers have found his story as fas
cinating as he found the raw material out
of which he constructed it. Speaking of it
a few days ago he said: "The book is not
history but fiction. Many years ago Wil
liam Harrison Ainsworth wrote a novel
called 'John Law, but it was not fiction, it
was history. Yet in my romance I have
had at heart one great idea the tremen
dous impression the Mississippi valley must
have made on the early venturers; especial
ly the impression on John Law. the man
who was later to be much concerned with
lt. I have been asked why I brought htm
to this country. Not to have brought him
here would have been to kill the story,
to tell simply what the encyclopedias
tell. As a matter of fact I Van quite
as fully prove that John Law came to
America as any one can prove that he
did not. He stood in the virgin valley of
the Mississippi, he realized its greatness
and with prophetic eye he saw the promise
of the future. Then he returned to France
and told the Recent that here in his pos
sessions in the New World was the basis
for a national credit. Logically. Law must
have come to this country. If he did not.
he certainly ought to have come. How I
covet the experiences of those men who
saw the West at its birth! The West, that
is the main thing. My efTort was simplv
to arrange the essential facts of that
early day in such a way as to offer the
most vivid and convincing picture of a
new world as it mi.ht have been at the
time In question. The failure to chronicle
dates and duly marshal facts is not in my
opinion a fault but a virtue. The book has
a hundred faults, but this is not one of
them."
Mr. Houh is a sreat lover of the West
as readers of "The Mississippi Bubble"
must have guessed, and a s-hort cut to his
affectionate regard is to nsk him. adroitly,
where to go for a moose, or what kind of
snow-shoes he wore the winter he took
the census of the buffalo in the National
Park. Mr. Hough is loyal to Chicago, but
should his pen earn him a fortune, it is
not likely that he could withsand the allur
ing voice of the wilderness.

industrialism, which is bringing about a
gradual, though guarded, movement in the
direction of state socialism. The Owenite
experiments were a direct result of a similar
state of affairs created by the advent of
modern machinery a little over a century
ago, with the accompanying disregard of
wealthy manufacturers for the welfare
of worklngmen and of society In gen
eral. As a protest against that spirit
Robert Owen's life and achievements, both
in England and in America, deserve ever
to be held In remembrance.
"His work of reform among the employes
of his cotton mills at New Lanark, Scot
land, was a marvel of philanthropic
achievement and was the beginning of the
industrial ameliorations that have consti
tuted one of the chief glories of the nine
teenth century. Though his socialistic
scheme, attempted at New Harmony, was
impracticable and became a disastrous fail
ure in two years, it contained the seeds of
many of our most valued social and educa
tional betterments of later years. The
New Harmony failure deserves closer
study than it has had in the last half
century, and Mr. Lockwood's volume pre
sents its strange story with a luminous
comprehensiveness that tempts to pe
rusal. Mr. Lockwood Is an Indiana man
and a graduate of De Pauw, and has spirit
the leisure of a good many years in col
lecting the materials for this complete ex
position of the rise and fall of the New
Harmony communities. He has digested
all the literature on the subject and has
been enabled to use much new material,
the most valuable of which he credits to
the collection of data made by Arthur
Dransfield, secretary of the Worklngmen's
Institution at New Harmony."

MANILA, Aug. 21. The defense in the
Freedom sedition case has called Governor
Taft as a witness to show that many for
mer insurgent leaders who were gailty of
various offenses not recognized by the laws
of war have been appointed to civil posi
tions. Governor Taft gave testimony to the
fact that many such former insurgents had
been appointed, but that they had proved
honest, straightforward and earnest. He
said that some of them had been guilty
of murder from American standards, but
that from their own standpoint they un
doubtedly believed their conduct of the
war to have been legitimate. Governor
Taft said that he had found these ap
pointees to be loyal and that they were
not chosen because they happened to be
insurgent generals, tut because they were
men of influence among their own people.
He said the experience of the civil author
ities with these men had been most satis
factory. Governor Taft has resumed the governor
ship of the archipelago, relieving Luke
E. Wright, who has been acting Governor
during Judge Taft's absence. Commission

WASHINGTON, Aug. 24.-"The Subma
rine and Land Telegraphs of the World"
Is the title of a monograph prepared by
the Treasury Bureau of Statistics which
will appear In the forthcoming Monthly
Summary of Commerce and Finance. It
presents some information regarding the
submarine telegraphs of the world which
is especially interesting at this time in
view of the prospective construction of an
all-American cable across the Pacific. It
shows that the submarine telegraphs of the
world number 1.7Ü0. Their aggregate length
is nearly LYV,000 miles; their total cost is
estimated at $275,0uO,0OO, and the number of
messages annually transmitted over them
Is more than 6,000,000. All the grand divi
sions of the earth are now connected by
their wires, and from country to country
and Island to island the thoughts and words
of mankind are instantaneously trans
mitted. Beneath all oceans save the Pa
cific the universal language which this
system has created flows uninterruptedly
and man talks as face to face with his
fellow-man at the antipodes. Darkest
Africa now converses daily with enlight
ened Europe or America, and the great
events of the morning are known in the
evening throughout the inhabited world.
Adding to the submarine lines the land
telegraph systems by which they are con
nected and through which they bring In
terior points of the various continents into
instantaneous communication, the total
length of telegraph lines of the world is
USO.OuO miles, the length of their single
wires or conductors 3.S0O.0O0 miles, and the
total number of messages annually sent
over them about 400,0X,OC0, or an average
of more than 1,000,000 each day.
In the short half-century since the prac
ticability of submarine telegraphy was
demonstrated the electric wires have in
vaded every ocean except the Pacific. Near
ly a score of wires have been laid across
the Atlantic, of which no less than thirteen
now successtully operate between the
United States and Europe, while three oth
ers span the comparatively short distance
between South America and the African
and south European coa?t lines. Through
out the Indian ocean lines connect the far
East with Europe and America via the
Red sea, the Mediterranean, the western
coast of Europe and the great transatlan
tic lines. The Mediterranean is crossed and
recrossed In Its entire length and breadth
by numerous cahle lines, and the "Medi
terranean of America." the (lulf of Mexico
and the Caribbean sea. is traversed in all
directions by lines which bring its islands
and colonies into speaking relations with
each other and with South America, Cen
tral America, the United States and thence
with Europe, Africa, Asia the whole world.
Along the eastern const of Asia cable lines
loop from port to port and island to Island,
receiving messages overland from eastern
Europe via the Russia-Siberian land lines
and forwarding them to Japan, China,
Australia. New Zealand, the Straits Settle
ments, Hong-Kong and the Philippines
and receiving others in return. South
America is skirted with cable lines along its
entire border save the extreme south,
where they are brought into intercommuni
cation by land lines. Along the entire
coast of Africa cables loop from place to
place and Irom colony to colony, stretching
along the entire circumference and pene
trating the interior by land lines at various
points.
Every body of water lying between the in
habited portions of the earth, with the single
exception of the Pacific ocean, has been
crossed and recrossed by submarine tele
graph lines. Even that vast expanse of water
has been invaded along its margin, sub
marine wires stretching along it western
border from Siberia to Australia, while its
eastern borders are skirted with lines
which stretch along the western coasts of
the two Americas. Several adventurous
pioneers In Pacific telegraphy have ven
tured to considerable distances and depths
in that great ocean, one cable line run
ning from Australia to New Zealand, a
distance of over 1.000 miles, and another
extending from Australia to the French
colony of New Caledonia, 800 miles sea
ward. A cable which is to connect Canada
with Australia across the Pacific is now
being laid at the joint expense of the
United Kingdom. Canada and the Austral
ian commonwealth, and has already been
completed from Vancouver, British Colum
bia, to Fanning island, just south of the
Hawaiian islands, and it is expected that
the entire line will be completed by the end
of the present year.
The chief obstacle in the past to the con
struction of a grand transpacific cable
was found in the fact that midocean rest
ing places could not be satisfactorily ob
tained or arranged for, no single govern
ment controlling a sufficient number of
suitable landing places to make this seem
practicable, in view of the belief that the
distance through which messages could be
sent and cables controlled was limited.
With landing places at Hawaii, Wake
island, Guam and the Philippines, how
ever, no section of a cable stretching from
the United States to Asia and touching
at these points would have a length equal
to that now In dally operation between
France and the United States. The length
of the French cable from Brest, France,
to Cape Cod, Mass., is 3,250 miles, while
the greatest distance from land to land
on the proposed Pacific route would be
that from San Francisco to Hawaii, 2,0SJ
miles; that from Hawaii to Wake island
being 2.044 miles, from Wake Island to
Guam 1,200 miles, from Guam to Manila
1.52) miles, and from Manila to the Asiatic
coast fCO miles.
While the depth of the Pacific is some
what greater than that at which any cable
has been laid, the difference betwe?n its
depth and the greatest depth reached oy ca
bles in the Atlantic would be very slight, the
cable recently laid from Haiti to the Wind
ward islands being in 1S,.m) feet of water.
The recent survey for a cable between
the Pacific coast and Manila justifies the
belief that a route can be selected in which
the depth will not exceed 2t,0tX) feet and
may not exceed 1S.0U0 feet. The recent sur
vey made by the bureau of equipment.
Navy Department, under the direction of
Rear Admiral It. P. Bradford, disclosed
the greatest ocean depths heretofore known
lying between Midway island and Guam
and being 31.614 feet, or but sixty-six feet
short of six miles depth of water. This
depression, however, which has been named
the "Nero deep." in honor of the vessel
from which the sounding was made, can be
avoided by a detour, and it is believed
that the necessary depth will not exceed
20.o") feet and may not be more than lS.OuO
feet.

side. The flagship was Just falling down
into a trough when he notified the ensign
at his side that he could see the enemy.
The officer of the dock called Flag Lieu
tenant Evans and Flag Secretary Bristol,
and it was but the work of a moment to
inform Admiral Higginson of the probabil
ity that the time for decisive action was at
hand.
It was real war then. General quarters
were sounded. There was a quick rush of
many feet, the manning of a hundred posts,
the clank of the anchor chain, the ringing
of bells, the giving of orders and a general
clearing for action. Not many moments
passed before the flagship was under way.
steaming at fourteen knots, with the Ala
bama and Massachusetts many lengths in
the rear. Some distance back was the
Barney, rapidly overhauling the ships
ahead.
At 5:40 o'clock the three battleships, aided
by the converted yacht Scorpion, which
had chased in from the south in time
to be in at the finish, and the Harney,
which had overrun the fleet, formed a
horseshoe about the white squadron. The
elation among the men on board the blue
squadron ran high.
SWORD REFUSED.
There was something pathetic in the pic
ture when Commander Pillsbury, after he
had signaled his surrender, passed in his
barge from the Prairie, walked up the star
board gangway of the Kcarsarge and of
fered his sword to Admiral Higginson.
"Keep your sword, sir," said the senior
officer, his voice quavering a bit in spite of
himself. "I would not accept the sword
from so gallant a foe."
"And I, sir," responded Pillsbury, with
dignity, "could not surrender to a nobler
or better officer, sir."
This exchange of words ended the actual
surrender and at the invitation of Admiral
Higginson, Commander Pillsbury stepped
down to the cabin of the Kearsarge and
here the two officers discussed In privacy
the Incidents of the days since the "declara
tion of hostilities" on Wednesday.
At the conclusion of the conference Com
mander Pillsbury returned to his flag
ship and it was not long after that the
Prairie headed down the coast. A little
later signals were given for the blue squad
ron to return to Rockport. Later, by the
same system of communication, established
and maintained so successfully since
Wednesday, messages were dispatched to
all points from Portland to Provincetown
ordering all the warships of the defending
squadron to return to Rockport for fur
ther instructions and at the same time to
collect on the way to this harbor all signal
men who had been detailed at both island
and mainland stations along the coast.
In an interview on board his flagship
Admiral Higginson expressed his pleasure
at the real work which had been done
during the week. He commended Staehle,
the apprentice boy, who was the first to
report the presence of Commander Pills
bury's squadron. He said he believed that
to some extent the maneuvers had taught
the navy its points of weakness and
strength during a time of real action, and
he believed that much good would come
from the "war game."
The naval experts are discussing the rea
son for Commander Pillsbury's maneuver
in steaming finally to the northward and
coming to anchor as he did at a point off
Magnolia and near to Gloucester harbor,
especially In the light of the announcement
that he had determined to anchor in Salein
harbor, and the theory was advanced that
the acting admiral of the white squadron
either had observed that he had been
sighted and decided to surrender hopeless
ly, or try at the last moment to run unseen
by Admiral Higginson into Gloucester har
bor. The main theme of discussion In Rockport
to-nlght among the seafaring people, who
know the Massachusetts coast as well as
they know their own houses, was the ap
parent rejection of all strategetic move
ments by Commander Pillsbury. He had
not tried to land officers or marines ashore
to learn of the enemy's movement, and he
had sailed almost to the base of the de
fense just before daylight when capture
seemed inevitable.
WORK OF SIGNAL MEN.
To the Associated Tress correspondent
Admiral Higginson spoke very freely of
the signal service. He laid special em
phasis upon the effective work of the men
detailed to signal duty, and said he in
tended to Issue a commendatory letter to
all the men of his command. He scored
the telephone sen-ice and said it appedred
very antiquated. He emphasized the
necessity of the wireless telegraphy and
illustrated the benefits, If ships of the navy
were fitted with new invention.
"There would have been no need of the
torpedo scouts," he said, "for I would have
known at all times the exact location of
my ships. We need this service badly. We
arc three years behind our foreign friends
in this respect and I hope the system will
'da installed on the ships of the navy very
soon."
Commander Pillsbury was asked regard
ing his movements and stated that when
he left Provincetown last Tuesday his fleet
steamed directly to sea, running off some
400 miles about southeast of Cape Cod. His
plan was to lay off there until Saturday
night and then to try for Salem harbor.
Coming on the coast last night, he had
first thought of making a feint with one
of his ships in the direction of Portland,
hoping to draw off Admiral Higginson and
the big ships of his command in that di
rection, but as a heavy sea was running
and his ships were slow of speed and their
bottoms foul, he decided not to do this and
made his run direct for Salem harbor. The
only ship of Admiral Iligginson's fleet he
saw during the entire period was the tor
pedo boat Barney, which he sighted just
about the same time he found he was dis
covered by the sharp-eyed Stehle of the
Kearsarge.

mation of Commander Pillsbury's defeat
in his attempt to enter Salem harbor and
hold it against the ships of Admiral Ilig
ginson's fleet came to the Navy Department
this morning in the following dispatch from
the commander of the attacking fleet, dated
at Gloucester:
"White squadron surrendered to blue at
daylight this morning while entering Sa
lem harbor. The Panther and the Supply
have been ordered to proceed, in obedience
to the department's instructions. The
Prairie goes to Boston to-morr.ow for re
pairs. PILLSBURY."
The whites defeat has been anticipated
here by naval officers. They believed Pills
bury was handicapped by the limited area
of the defending line, the slow speed of his
ships and the small number of ports which
he could enter under the rules.

Lodge Plan for To-Da.
NAHANT, Mass., Aug. 24. President
Roosevelt left Newport, to-daV, at 2 o'clock,
in a sumptuous train of four special cars.
Accompanying him to, the depot were Mr.
and Mrs. Winthrop Chanler and Senator
and Mrs. Lodge, the two latter journeying
with the party to Nahant, the home of the
Lodges, where the President will spend the
night.
A more quiet day could not have been
spent by the President. As is his custom,
he rose early, and, after eating a light
breakfast, left the Chanler house about 9
o'clock and went out to meet Mrs. Roose
velt, who had come up on the Sylph during
the night. The President was aboard the
ship for about two hours. Mrs. Roosevelt
accompanied him ashore and spent about
half an hour at the Chanler residence, tak
ing a look at the baby, but did not remain
for the christening. She left Just before
the ceremony for Oyster Bay. The Presi
dent remained at the Chanler villa, where
the ceremony of christening the baby was
performed by the Rev. John Diamond, of
the Episcopal Church, In the presence of
the President, who acted as godfather;
Senator and Mrs. Lodge, the latter acting
as godmother; Mrs. Julia Ward Howe and
a large number of the personal friends of
the family.
The affair was regarded as one of the
most auspicious functions of the season
at that fashionable resort, due not only
to the social prominence of the Chanlers,
but to the fact that the President of the
United States would act as godfather to
the child, for whom It was named.
Traveling on Sunday was something new
for the President, but in this Instance he
was obliged to depart from his usual cus
tom, as he went to Newport for no other
purpose than to attend the christening, and
It was necessary to make the short Jour
ney to Nahant to-day in order to maintain
his schedule. Lieutenant Governor Bates
and Adjutant General Dalton, of Massa
chusetts, boarded the train at Newport
and completed the arrangements for the
entertainment of the President and party In
Boston to-morrow night.
That the enthusiasm attending the Presi
dent's journey shows no abatement was
made evident to-day by the crowd gathered
about the depot at Newport, which cheered
his arrival and continued cheering until the
train was lost to view. Stone Bridge, R. I..
Fall River, Taunton and Mansfield. Mass.,
turned out in force to greet the President,
and as each place was reached the train
was slowed down, the President appear
ing on the rear platform and bowing his
acknowledgments. At Boston the entire
party entered the special train which was
standing on another track, the crowd in
the meantime keeping up a continuous
cheering.
At Lynn, where carriages were In waiting
to take the party to Nahant, the sight was
one long to be remembered. Stretched
from the station through the city and
across the peninsula to Nahant, a distance
of four miles, were fully G0.OX) people, who
cheered time and time again as the Presi
dent passed. There were two miles of car
riages on either side of the road. The
President rode with Senator Lodge, and
was escorted from Lynn to Nahant by a
troop of cavalry.
The arrival at Nahant was a signal for
another outbreak of applause and cheering,
and the two places seemed to vie with each
other as to which should be the more cor
dial in its greeting. Flags and bunting
were displayed everywhere.
To-morrow afternoon the President will
deliver an address from the steps of the
public library building In Nahant.

THE WONDER OF THE AGE
The "Omega"
Odorless Gas Stove
Marks a revolution In gas heating and
household sanitation. Perfect combustion
is secured by the generation of intense
heat and the thorough mixing progressively
of the gas supply with air. by which it is
possible to use at least forty-five cubic feet
of air to every cubic foot of gas.
Its operation combines three important
and indispensable factors economy in fuel
perfect combustion, sterilization. In the
"OMEGA" they are the result of mechan
ical combinations produced as the result of
extensive scientific research.
