In his address to the graduating class of Cornell uni versity today President Schurman said : "The most imminent danger in mod ern politics is the exploitation of the weaker races by the stronger races, in to whose power they have fallen. It may be done by regulations of trade anu commerce, or it more insidious ways. uoin?, n is certain to prove a bane to both. For the world is a moral world and history is governed by moral laws and oppression and injustice never fail to bring as their Nemesis discontent, chronic revolts and impoverished treas uries. Good policy prescribes absolute justice in dealing with weaker races who have come under the sovereignty of stronger races. In the ca.?e of us Americans it would be an unpardonable thing if we forget our own ifieals and conceivea mat we had any inission m ! iiriLiun iu loreign peoples who may come under our flag except to train them up to the exercise and enjoyment of the privileges, rights and libe'-ties which the Hag symbolizes and guaran tees. Our true greatness consisting in the character of our intellectual and moral ideals and the energy with which we devote ourselves to their realization, the success of our government of lower races will be measured by the degree in which we train them up to become sharers of these ineffable blessines To our aavantage and not theirs. would be to repeat the criminal blunder which in the last century cost England her American colonies. "I feel sanguine, however, about the future of cur enlarging republic, and the ground of my confluence lies In the nature of the ideals of the American people and devotion with which they pursue them. The great American na tion loves order, justice, liberty and in telligence and desires them for others as well as for itself. See how sensitive public opinion was on the Porto Rican legislation and how, in response to the demands of independent citizens irre spective of party, a bill was passed giv ing the Porto Ricans home rule and providing for free trade with the United States necessarily in two years and just as much earlier as the Porto Ricans themselves desired." 89c 39c PHONE 822 E A FLAT FAILURE. The American Pavilion at Paris Is So Regarded. New York, June 22. A dispatch to the Tribune from Paris says: President Loubet, accompanied by M. Millerand, minister of commerce, and M. Picard, commissary general of the exposition, made his official visit this morning to the United States national pavilion. The time appointed for the visit was 9:30 o'clock. It was exactly 9:30 o'clock by the Paris railway station time, according to which Parisian watches are usually set, but which is five minutes in advance of the time in dicated by the clocks in the interior of the stations, according to which trains start, that the presidential party ap peared at the threshold of the American national building. The president was re ceived by Ambassador Porter. General Porter walked beside President Loubet, who seemed pleased with the plaster statue by Borghum representing a stampede of three American bronchoes which has recently been placed in the center of the large octagonal hall of the pavilion. The president also noted the plaster busts of Lincoln, Grant, Cleve land and McKinley. He looked at the portrait of McKinley by .Pratto and he glanced at a portrait of a Sioux chief tain, a portrait of Prince Ching, "uncle of the emperor of China," and one of a llama (high priest). There are also some strange canvases by Harrison, Vail, Howland, Neman and other American painters, but all badly hung. The United States post- office box was duly inspected and also the registers where the Americans write their names and addresses. The presi dent looked up at the pasteboard shields hung on the three tiers of balconies rep resenting the Lrnion. Ambassador Porter then took the president to see the elevator, which however, did not happen to be in work Ing order. General Porter looked at President Loubet, who looked at Minis ter Millerand who in turn glanced at sphinix like Picard. All smiled and the presidential party, after cordially shak ing hands with the United States am bassador, walked off to visit other na tional pavilions. The presidential visit at the American building did not last more than five minutes, the reason being, unfortunate ly, that there was nothing of particular interest to see there. Just as President Loubet left the building Commissioner General Peck arrived to welcome th president.

CROOK WRIGHT MAY WAIT. His Case Por Highway Robbery Con tinued In District Court. The famous Crook Wright has again worked his rabbit foot and succeeded th having his trial, which was to have come before the court this morning, postponed until the November term. Just what reasons there were for con tinuing the case could not be ascer tained, but they were "good and suffi cient," and satisfied the court or the case would have been tried. Mr. Jetmore presented an affidavit which caused the continuance. The paper was not on file in the clerk's oifice this morning. It appears that, it is impossible to get Wrisht sentenced. There is al ways a lack of evidence or a delay which ends in his being given his lib erty. Of course his political "pull" has nothing to do with it. It is just his rabbit foot which he always uses to "fade" justice. Wright was held for highway rob bery. People who are acquainted with the manner in which cases are prose cuted in Shawnee county will not be surprised to hear of the continuance of the case. HEWES DON'T LIKE IT. Starts Habeas Corpus Proceedings to Get Out of Reformatory. The habeas corpus case in which Albert Hewes seeks to gain liberty from confinement in the Hutchinson re formatory will be argued in the su preme court July 3, at which time Hewes will be brought to Topeka by the superintendent of the reformatory, J. S. Simmons. The proceeding was established by a Kingman attorney. He claims that the law of 1897 providing for the interchange of judges of the district court is void. This law provides that where a district judge is by any cause disqualified from trying a case, instead of ordering a change of venue, the judge may sum mon the judge of any other district to try the case. The regular judge at Kingman could not hear the Hewes case, and under the provisions of this law summoned a judge from a neighboring district. Un der this proceeding Hewes was convict ed and relief is now sought ' through habeas corpus. Should the law be held void Hewes will leave the reformatory a free man. He had a hand in a King man county murder. Concert To-Night At Garfield Park by Marshall's band, 8 o'clock. is the nroerramme at The Hats, Shoes and Furnishing Goods Never Before Equalled.
