There have al w4ys been plenty of Americans who wi uld have readied one. too, if thrones lU*een open to competition. But •b °f labor has not gone that 'a and hitherto the deserving person frs f #tood no chance against the tenth trf nnmftter of a foolish face. So many 1 Winn tin I.monarch among us has had ro.Jook on while others muddled the r business In a way to make him ?rtt.his teeth. Such n man was Com :lWider ’ of the Boston Navy a * urn a^a^rs ted the gov- to take him away from rou- and anoint him king of iiiiam. Not that there was a formal for that would have offend- sentiment. And as to any legends that he was burning ‘•‘ike's in a peasant’s hut at the time or that lie was at his plough clad only in 1 tußlc and had to send home for his toga, we may say in advance that is nothing in them. The one au thenticated fact is that he became kiitg of Guam*. Jis king he has justified the hopes of a lfthat knew him. There was nothing Bourbon about him—no blind null' to the mistakes of his predeces ■ He saw, for example, where men the Pious and Edward the GSBrssor had failed, and .he soon ’Mlw? home that “Having disposed of ra P icl progress will be made f ur^er resistance will be en- Rapid progress was made, progress as is seldom seen in a Pacific archipelago. The people were Inland producing just enough food Kthem alive. In his ukase of 1 he commanded them to plant ind vegetables. lie has re ery adult native to contribute [>port of the government. He celled each one to maintain *ns and a sow. He has order to bring tnelr produce to the id sell it In short, he has hem at the regular produc ?alth out of which they are to their debts and pay their wor< ’ backward than the Russia of Teter’s time, and the reforms are more sweeping. He may be compared to the Hohenzollern who beat idlers over the head with his rattan and made the ap ple women knit at their stall. But be hind Frederick William was an army of 70,000 men, the best drilled force in Europe. On the other hand, when the Navy Department asked the ruler of Guam if he wanted more troops he re plied that the only thing l.e needed was an ice machine. Where other kings required standing armies he wanted only ice water. That, as an American, he felt he must have. And it is no mere matter of issuing decrees. These decrees are obeyed even when they run counter to the strongest popular traditions. A light and transitory marriage tie, or no mar riage tie at all, is one of these tradi tions. Yet when the decree went forth that people should marry, the entire adult population made a rush for licenses, and the officers had more than they could do to meet the demand. These are the rumors that come to us from Guam, and of no man is it easier to believe them than of the present rider. It should encourage them who fear that we should be unequal to our new duties. Even for a queer ana chronistic job like this we can find our man. and he fits in a good deal better than the average porphyro genitus. The Uncertainty of Fishing Fishing is notoriously an uncertain calling. The motions of fish are past all understanding. One season they will visit every part of these shores and those of Labrador in their count less shoals. The next season certain bays or even a whole shore will be al most deserted. The herring are espe cially fickle, and there are places that were once good herring grounds that have scarcely seen a herring for many years. All sorts of theories are ad vanced to account for this, some of them ridiculous enough. But the fact remains, and when the fish fail to turn up in numbers at the accustomed place destitution follows. From a very early period the Government has granted relief in such cases. It is far easier to start doling out public funds than to stop, and it has now become a regular affair. The effect of such doles may readily be imagined. The baser look for them, ana the higher minded soon accept the philosophy that they have as much right to get a share rs any one else.—New York Sun.
