drifting near the shore in the strong
current of the river about a mile oe
low Parkville, the nose of the boat ran
into a half submerged row of piling
near the Quindaro pumping station of
the Kansas City waterworks. As the
boat stopped persons on the river bank

Boys in Niagara Rapids.
Niagara Falls, N. T., June 23. Don
ald Roscoe, 10 years old, and Hubert
Moore, 9 years old, both of Buffalo,
went to their death in a small boat
in the whirlpool rapids, while hundreds
of men watched helpless from the
shore. The boys were playing in a flat
bottom scow, half a mile above the
rapids, when the rope holding the boat
broke and they were carried out into
the stream and down the river.
Up to the time the boat reached mid
stream it made little progress. After
it passed the bridges the current car
ried it rapidly towards the rapids. The
bridgemen did not see the boat until
it was close at hand. Then they called
fire headquarters and two companies
of firemen were sent to save, the lads
if possible.
Hundreds swarmed to the river banks
in a vain effort to rescue. The boys.
realizing their fate, stood up as the
boat neared the edge of the roaring
whirlpool and shook hands In farewell.
A second later they were engulfed by
a great wave in the rapids. The boat
shot out of sight. One of the boys was
seen for a moment struggling in the
rushing waters and then both disap
peared. Neither body has been recov

bera and in the committee rooms is
likely to become a burden as the sea
son lengthens, and that every con
sideration of personal convenience and
personal comfort, perhaps, in the cases
of some of us, considerations of per
sonal health even, dictate an early con
clusion of the deliberations of the ses
sion; but there are occasions of public
duty when these things which touch us
privately seem very small; when the
work to be done is so pressing and so
fraught with big consequence that we
know that we are not at liberty to
weigh against it any point of personal
sacrifice. We are now in the presence
of such an occasion. It is absolutely
imperative that we should give the
business men of this country a banking
and currency system by means of
which they can make use of the free
dom of enterprise and of individual
initiative which we are about to be
stow upon them.
W are about to set them free; we
must not leave them without the tools
of action when they are free. We are
about to set them free by removing the
trammels of the protective tariff. Ever
since the Civil War they have waited
for this emancipation and for free op
portunities it will bring with it. It has
been reserved for us to give it to them.
Some fell in love, indeed, with the
slothful security of their dependence
upon the government; some took ad
vantage of the shelter of nursery to
set up a mimic mastery of their own
within Its walls. Now both the tonic
and the discipline of liberty and
maturity are to ensue. There will be
some readjustments of purpose and
point of view. There will follow a
period of expansion and new enterprise,
freshly conceived. It is for us to de
termine now whether It shall be rapid
and facile and of easy accomplish
ment. This it can not be unless the
resourceful business men who are to
deal with the new circumstances are
to have at hand and ready for use the
Instrumentalities and conveniences of
free enterprise which independent men
need when acting on their own in
itiative. To Sew What Business Needs.
It is not enough to strike the shack
les from business. The duty of states
manship Is not negative merely. It is
constructive also. We must show that
we understand what business needs
and that we know how to supply It.
No man, however casual and superfi
cial his observation of the conditions
now prevailing in the country, can fail
to see that one of the chief things bus
iness needs now, and will need in
creasingly as it gains in scope and
Ttgor a the years immediately ahead
of us, is the proper means by which
readily to vitalize Its credit, corporate
and individual, and its originative
brains. What will it profit us to be
free if we are not to have the best
and most accessible instrumentalities
of commerce and enterprise? What
will it profit us to be quit of one kind
of monopolyif we were to remain In the
grip of another and more effective
kind? How are we to gain and keep
the confidence of the business com
munity unless we show that we know
how both to aid and protect it? What
shall we say if we make fresh enter'
prise necessary and also make it very
difficult by leaving all else except the
tariff lust as we found It? The tyran
nies of business, big and little, lie
within the field of credit. We know
that. Shall we not act upon the knowl
edge? Do we not know how to act
upon it? If a man can not make his
assets available at pleasure, his assets
of capacity and character and re
source, what satisfaction is it to him
to see opportunity becokonlng to him
on every hand, when others have the
keys of credit in their pockets and
treat them as but their own private
possession ? It Is perfectly clear that
it is our duty to supply the new bank
ing and currency system the country
needs, and that It will immediately
need it more than ever.
The only question Is, When shall we
supply it now, or later, after the de
mands shall have become reproaches
that we were so dull and so slow
Shall we hasten to change the fariff
laws and then be laggards about mak
ing It possible and easy for the country
to take advantage of that question. We
must act now, at whatever sacrifice to
ourselves. It is a luy which the cir
eumstances forbid us to postpone. 1
should be recreant to my deepest con
victions of public obligations did I not
press it upon you with solemn ana
urgent insistence.
Responsive to Credit.
The principles upon which we
should act are also clear. The coun
try has sought and seen its path in
this matter within the last few years
sees it more clearly now than it
ever saw it before much more clear
ly than when the last legislative pro
posals on the subject were made. We
must have a currency, not rigid as
now, but readily, elastlcally responsive
to sound credit, the expanding and
contracting credits of everyday trans
actions, the normal ebb and flow of
personal and corporate dealings. Our
banking laws must mobilize reserves;
must not permit the concentration
anywhere in a few hands of the mon
etary resources of the country or their
use for speculative purposes in such
volume as to hinder or impede or
stand In the way of other more legiti
mate, more fruitful uses. And the
control of the system of banking and
of issue which our new laws are to
set up must be public, not private,
must be vested in the government it
self, so that the backs may be the In
struments, not the masters, of busi
ness and of individual enterprise and
The committees of the congress to
which legislation of this character is
referred have devoted careful and
dispassionate study to the means of
accomplishing these objects. They
have honored me by consulting me

have come to you, as the head of the
government and the responsible lead
er of the party in power, to urge ac
tion now, while there is time to serve
the country deliberately and as we
should, in a clear air of common coun
sel. I believe that you share this
conviction. I therefore appeal to you
wnn connaence. I am at your eer
vice without reserve to play my part
in any way you may call upon me to
piay it in this great enterprise of ex
igent reform which it will dignify and
distinguish us to perform and dis
credit us to neglect.
Tells Washington Correspondents of
Attitude on Currency Bill.
Washington. June 23. President
Wilson freely discussed the Glass cur
rency bill with Washington corres
pondents today at the regular semi-
weekly conference and made It Plain
that he intends to stand as firmly be
hind it as he does behind the tariff
bill. The general principles of the
bill, Mr. Wilson considers clearlv de-
iensiDie but he epects there will be
amendments for detail. Mr. Wilson
is inclined to believe that the bank
ers themselves eventually would be
glad of direction of a federal reserve
board of which they have no control,
but which would properly safeguard
their interests. The president made it
clear that he had no fear of politics
in that connection. So far as the re
discounting teatures of the bill are
concerned the president regards the
provision to compel federal reserve
banks bf one region to rediscount as
sets of a reserve bank of another, as
imperative to prevent concentration
of funds in the hands of a few.
Storm Broke One Hour After Illinois
Church Appeal.
St Louis, June 23. An hour after
prayers for rain had been ordered in
the churches of Belleville, 111., a
suburb near here, a heavy rainstorm
broke the two months' drought
throughout Missouri and Southern Illi
nois. A hailstorm completely blan
keted the lawns of Forest park with
ice while streets here were flooded for
several hours. Lightning did consid
erable damage to property.

Peking, June 23. A special dele

sidered probable that the choice for
this mission will fall on Dr. Wu Ting

Bed Sox Strike Gait, but Hare
Little Chance at Athletics.
New York. Jure 23. With New
York and Philadelphia engaged in a
hot fight for first place and Brook
lyn again playing superb ball, sprint
ing rapidly toward the front and not
far bahlnd, the National League race
has entered one of the most interest
ing phases of the season. Chicago still
has a look-in and, according to Man

It also is a third place club the Bos

strongest showing.
The Red Sox, champions of the
world, apparently have struck their
gait at last and the American League
is taking notice. Jake Stahl's com
bination and with its old infield lack
ing only Stahl himself, working to
gether again and its wonderful out
field trio Speaker, Hooper and
Lewis fielding and hitting as well as
ever, dropped only one game in seven
during the week Just ended and
wound up its six days' play by trim
ming Philadelphia twice in succes
sion. The Clevelands are some distance
ahead yet and the Mack contingent
still further away. But a week or
two more such as last, when the Naps
dropped five of seven, and the lead
ers were only able to get a three and
three split, would do wonders toward
tightening up what has looked like a
lopsided race, even if the Boston
speeders should not fare as well as
they have of late.

Calgary, June 23. When the trial
of Arthur Pelkey, the pugilist, who is
charged with manslaughter in causing
the death of Luther McCarty, in the

Newest Republic a Wonderland
Which the World Knows Little.
China, the oldest civilization, the
largest nation and the world's young
est republic! The authentic history of
nina as an integral empire goes back
to about 1000 B. C, but the names of
dynasties reaching back 2,000 years
earner are preserved by the Chinese
While hundreds of years before Christ,
and even during the dark ages, the
civilization of China was more ad
vanced than that of the European or
otner Asiatic nations, very little prog
ress has been made since that time
Several explanations for this condition
are given. The Chinese, though pa
tient and painstaking workers, are not
inherently Inventive, and it has fur
ther been the policy of the ruling
power aunng the modern era to iso
late China and to discourage advances
on the part of foreign nations seeking
commercial relations. Another hln
drance has been the custom of ances
tor worship, the reverence for old cus
toms and habits, and so a horror of
all innovations. It speaks well for the
organization of the Standard Oil com
pany that kerosene oil is the only well
known product of foreign origin in the
- As early as the seventh century A.
D. the Chinese manufactured paper
and printed In a crude sort of way.
The baking of porcelain and the weav
ing of silk, some .processes connected
with which have never been improved
upon, antedate records. One of the
wonders of the world and a remarks
able feat of engineering, the great
wall of China, was built in the third
century B. C. as a protection against
the raids of the Tartars. It stretches
for nearly 1,500 miles along the north
era border of " China proper, often
reaching a height of 50 feet, and sup
ported by frequent garrison towers,
and was so thoroughly constructed
that portions of it today remain in
good condition.
Intensive agriculture and hortieul
ture and the processes of irrigation
and fertilizing have been highly de
veloped; in China proper, in the val
leys of the Yangtse and the Hoang
Ho, water is pumped to the hill tops,
7,000 to 8,000 feet above sea level.
and two or three crops a year are har
vested. These valleys support a denser
population than any similar area in
the world. If all the people In the
United States and 40,000.000 more
were crowded into the state of Texas
the population would be no denser
than it is in southern China, The
Yangtse is one of the principal thor
oughfares of China and is navigable
for nearly 2,000 miles, but the Hoans
Ho is shallow and frequently over
flows its banki . In the last Z.5UU
vears it has changed its course eleven
times, and the different channels it
has occupied are hundreds of miles
apart. The great loss of life on one
occasion reaching t,000,000 and the
damage to property resulting from the
floods- accompanying these changes
have given to the .river the name of
"China's Sorrow1, " ,
The natural waterways, supple
mented by the Grand canal, which is
1,200 years old, furnlsH elaborate
means of intercommunication, and
the tonnage of China's inland com
merce is estimated larger than the
combined tonnage of all the rest of
the world. The boats and methods
of handling the cargoes, however, are
antiquated, and - steam is barely
known. In all occupations the great
motive power for the 450,000.000 is
manual labor. Coolies, or porters, the
laboring class, earn seven cents a day.
Oxen and mules are used to some ex
tent at the Irrigation pumps and In
packing. Cattle and sheep cannot be
raised, for there Is no ground that can
be spared for pastures. There are no
roads, only footpaths, and in some
parts of China passengers are trans
ported overland by wheelbarrow.
The great maustnes ouusiue oi mo
production of food for home consump-
tion are the raising of tea and silk!1
worms and the mulberry trees for the
worms to feed upon. While few agri
cultural possibilities are now unde
veloped, that is, land possibilities, for
the tools and methods are unutterapiy

barely been touched. The coal fields,
the largest in the world, alone repre
sent incalculable wealth, and many
other minerals are found In commer
cial quantities. Whenever China does
permit the invasion of foreign capital
and enterprise there will be revolution
in the commerce or tne worm. .in

Rebel Aeroplane Drops Death Among
Mexican Federals.
Douglas, Ariz., June 23. An offi

states that the battle of Ortiz, begun
Thursday, has been resumed. The
rebel war aeroplane,, piloted by Didler
Mason, the French-aviator, did much
execution among the federals, it is
said. Pesquirea asserted the Huerta
commander was surrounded and could
not get away unless he cut through
the rebel lines.
Mason, according to the message,
