Differs "Vastly From and Is More Stringent
Than Old Law
The new naturalization law which
was passed by congress a few days
before adjournment is substantially
the same as the bill introduced. The
president approved it on June 29, and
it will take effect in full ninety days
after that date.
Immediately upon its approval cer
tain sections took effect, such as al
lowing the secretary of commerce and
labor to make use of the $100,000 ap
prpriated for the purpose of establish
ing the new law and the machinery
foi carrying it out, changing the
name of the bureau of immigration in
the department of commerce and la
bor to the ''Bureau of Immigration
and Naturalization" and giving that
bureau, under the direction and con
trol of the secietary of the department
of commeice and laboi, full charge of
the natui alization of citizens, also
giving the secietaiy of the department
authoi lty to establish such rules and
i egulationtj as may be necessary.
The law itself is considerably differ
ent fiom the piesent naturalization
law The buieau of immigration and
natmalization must have an accurate
desci lption of each immigrant and the
connecting link comes in this respect:
that the cleik of each couit where ap
plication is made for full citizenship
papeis must notify the bureau and
send a desci lption of the applicants,
including the date and place of his
amval in this countij, naming the
steamship on which he came, and giv
ing full paiticulais, piesumably in
oi dei that the applicant may be
checked up fiom the lecords of the
buieau His intention to become a
cut/en must be foimally declared at
least two jeais and not more than
seven yeais befoie he actually applies
toi citi/enship papeis. He must be
able to speak the English language
befoie he is gianted full citizenship
unless physically unable to do so,
and unless he has made entry under
the homestead laws
En case his application for citizen
ship is not satisfactoiy to the bureau
the United States attorney will be in
sti ucted to appear in coui when the
application is to be heard, which
shall be at least ninety days after he
has made the application, and the at
toi ney will ha\ the right to oppose
the gi anting of citizenship and bring
witnesses and intioduce documents
against it.
At any time after citizenship papers
will have been granted and the United
States attorney will have been con
meed that the applicant has prac
ticed fI aud obtaining his papers,
pioceedmgs may be started to cancel
such citizenship. The practice of
fiaud in obtaining citizenship papers
either by the one obtaining them or
by others in forging citizenship pa
peis, as has recently been done, and
selling them to foreigners, shall be
punished by not more than ten years'
imprisonment or $10,000 fine or both.
The protection of the new law is
insured and fortified by the most ex
treme provisions in it, providing
heavy punishment for any violation
ot it The law is stringent in every
respect and will soon be put into
effect throughout the country
Steel Passenger Cars.
The first steel passenger coach ever
built this country has just been
ompleted foi the use of the Pennsyl
vania railroad. In its general ap
pearance it does not materially differ
from other coaches now in use, but it
possesses certain important advant
ages over them that are expected to
commend it strongly not only to the
leading railroads of the country, but
also to the traveling public. Most
important of these advantages is the
claim that the use of steel coaches will
greatly decrease the danger to pas
sengers in case of accident, especially
due to derailment or collision. All
steel construction is of course much
stronger and more rigid than wood,
or part steel, and it is therefore held
that the danger of crushed cars or
telescoped cars will be largely less
ened when coaches aie made of this
matenal, while there will be a similar
decrease in the danger of fire follow
ing a wreck This latter danger is
one that is feared fully as much as the
chance of wrecks themselves, for ex
perience has shown that many times
more people meet death from the fire
which frequently follows a wreck than
directly as a result of the accident.
And of course if the coaches are com
posed largely of metal there will be
little to burn, thus giving a far better
opportunity to rescue survivors not
killed in the crash itself.
For a number of years many of the
leading railroads have been adding
steel freight cars to their rolling stock
for practically the same reasons now
advanced in favor of steel passenger
coaches. The cost of steel construc
tion is somewhat higher than for
wood, but the companies have felt
that the additional investment was
warranted by the superior protection
afforded to goods in transit and the
lessened chance of losses through ac
cident. And now they are planning
to try the same plan with passenger
service, and if the experiment proves
as successful as is expected and
Jioped, it will probably not be many
years before steel coaches will be
adopted to a more or less extent on
most of the roads of the country.
The coach which has just been com
pleted for the Pennsylvania road is
the first of several passenger cars of
the same kind which have been or
dered by that company, and naturally
there will be considerable interest in
the tests to be made of these cars.
The use of passenger cars which will
not burn under any circumstances is a
step far in advance of the abolition
of the old fashioned coal stove and
oil lamp.
The proposed improvement, there
fore, must command great public
favor If the patrons of the rail
roads could have their way, there
would be a rapid substitution of steel
for wooden cars all over the country.

Tainted Paper 3Ione
Treasurer Treat has submitted to
Secretary Shaw a report recommend
ing provision of law for cleaning the
country's paper currency. Mr. Treat
does not say why such laws are neces
sary in the United States rather than
elsewhere. It was not within his
province to do so, but it is sugges
tive that other countries do not have
paper. The treasury counters are
sickened by its odor, and there have
been cases of blood poisoning traced
to it. Why is it that the United States
has '"tainted" money in a sense about
which there can be no dispute?
In other countries currency has a
life like that of a plant or animal.
When it has survived its cycle it dies
a natural death, and there is birth of
another monetary unit, in an equally
natural manner. In some countries
the life of currency is that of a tax
period. Currency is issued to facili
tate tax collection, and when it comes
into government hands it is not re
issued. In other countries currency
is issued for planting the crops, or
harvesting them, and when it has
discharged its duty it dies until the
next crop season. Generally the life
of a civilized currency is that of a
trade cycle, corresponding roughly to
the life of an average promissory
note, two or three months more or
None of these considerations affect
the life of our curency. Bank notes
are not issued when and as wanted,
but only when the issuing bank's
bond account shows a profit, and re
demption, instead of being assisted,
is obstructed by law. Legal tenders
are taken from the bank reserves when
wanted for use, and are returned when
not wanted. The consequence is that
bank reserves are almost always defi
cient or redundant in the United
States, and both conditions are alike
uneconomic. Deficiency of bank re
serves does more than upset the bank
ing situationit affects prices, and
through them disturbs trade and in
dustry, thus doing harm which may
be very serious. And redundancy of
bank reserves has similar ill effects
in feverish stimulation of prices and
trade. The corollary of an elastic
currency would be undisturbed bank
Cooper's Success
I the South.
Those who have followed the stor
ies of the remarkable work that L.
T. Cooper has been accomplishing
with his two new medicines will be
interested in the report that comes
of his invasion of Nashville, Tenn.,
after nearly four weeks of
phenomenal success in New Or
Since Cooper's arrival in Nash
ville a few days ago, says a dis
patch, the city has been in an up
roar of excitement. The newspapers
print detailed accounts of his every
move, and recent issues contain
names of several prominent persons
said to have been cured by the use
of his preparations.
The cases thus far made public
seem to be confined largely to stom
ach trouble, although the names of
several persons have been mentioned
as having received excellent results
in cases of kidney trouble and rheu
matism. One thing that has done
much toward creating the present
excitement is the theory advanced
by Cooper that about fifty per cent
of the so-called stomach trouble is
due to immense parasites or tape
worms and which indeed seems true,
if one can judge from the number of
cases that are being continually
made public.
Reports from New Orleans say
that upwards of fifty of these para
sites were expelled from the systems
of persons who thought themselves
suffering from stomach trouble. So
far there have been reported seven
cases in Nashville, and in almost
every instance the patient was un
aware of the real cause of the trou
ble. Mrs. M. Murry, 1605 James
St., Nashville, a well known and
respected lady, who, according to
her story, had been sick for several
years and had been using Cooper's
medicines since his arrival in Nash
ville several days ago, was among
those whose names recently ap
peared in the daily papers. When
seen and asked about her experi
ence, Mrs. Murry said: I had
been a victim of stomach trouble
for years and doctored in vain. I
suffered greatly from an irregular
appetite, sometimes not being able
to eat at all, and other times not be
ing able to eat enough. I used to
feel tired and worn out all the time,
lost all ambition. I did not seem
to gain any strength or nourishment
from what I ate. I was nearly al
ways troubled with constipation and
frequently suffered from severe
headaches. Sometimes I would
have queer dizzy spells and could
see dark spots floating before my
eyes. After eating I would invari
ably experience a pain and bloat
ing sensation in my stomach. I had
doctored for a long time and have
used every remedy I ever heard of
without any benefit. When this man
Cooper came to Nashville and every
one was talking about what his
medicines were doing I secured a
trial treatment. I had taken only a
few doses of the New Discovery
medicine when a horrible tape worm
passed from my system. Soon I felt
better and have improved very rap
idly ever since. That is the whole
story. Now I am feeling much
stronger and better in every way. I
eat well and never have headaches
any more. I am more than grate
ful for what Mr. Cooper's wonderful
medicine has done for me and I am
satisfied that my suffering of all
these years was caused by nothing
but that awful worm."
Cooper, it will be remembered, is
the man who created a sensation in
St. Louis a short time ago, at which
time the newspapers all over the
country were full of the reports of
his work. The sale of his prepara
tions has reached enormous"propor
itons wherever introduced, and, al
though he has never visited Prince
ton, it is said at The Home Drug
Store, where the medicines are sold
in this city, that the demand for
them is startling and that several of
our prominent citizens have received
great benefit from their use.
reserves, and each proportioned to
the need of it. If we had a clean cur
rency we also would ha\e sounder
conditions of credit, a quieter money
market and less nervous trading on
all exchanges. It is because our cur
rency has no normal term of life, but
is used until it is rags,that it is so dirty
and so unsound. Mr. Treat's report
is convincing, but he does not hint at
even stronger considerations than he
mentions.New York Times.
President Hadley, of Yale, was talk
ing about his student days.
I remember a stately and venera
ble professor," he said, "upon whom
some sophomores once tried to play
a trick.
"The professor, one morning, being
unable to discharge his duties on ac
count of a cold, wrote on the black

is unable to attend to his classes to-
"The students erased one letter in
this notice, making it read:
'Dr. Dash, through indisposition,
is unable to attend to his lasses to-
"But it happened, a few minutes
later, that the professor returned for
a box he had forgotten. Amid a roar
of laughter he detected the change in
his notice, and, approaching the
blackboard, calmly erased one letter
in his turn.
"Now the notice read:

Had No Objection.
When Governor Head was in office
in New Hampshire, Col. Barrett, an
estimable member of the governor's
staff, died, and there was an unseemly
scramble of would-be successors for
the office, even while his body was
awaiting burial with military honors.
One candidate, somewhat bolder
than the rest, ventured to call upon
Governor Head, thinking to ascertain
the bent of the governor's mind upon
the important question.
"Governor," he asked,"not to speak
in a manner too positive, do you
think you would have any objections
if I was to get into Col. Barrett's
The answer came promptly: "No
I don't think I should have any ob
jections, if the undertaker is willing."
