Gold Galore Without "Prosperity." It is rather a curious condition of things that the,Transvaal, in Africa, the region now producing a greater quantity of gold than any other part of the world, should be in the throes of a business depression. The phenomenon is probably due to the fact that the gold taken out of the Transvaal mines does not stay in that country. There was a time when the United States, although a producer of gold on a vast scale, was periodically in a state of monetary panic and business depression, a condition which, in many if not all instances, could be traced to the fact that this was a debtor country and was therefore unable to maintain a stock of precious metals sufficient to provide an ample basis for its con stantly expanding credit system. There is little hope of reform and the abatement of the so called "expert evil," says Dr. Allen McLane Hamilton, the noted alienist retained for Thaw, until the expert is made in a measure the direct representative of the trial judge himself, and the sooner some legislation to this effect is provided the better not only for the reputation of the medical profession, but for the wel fare of the community. The czar has ordered for the first time in history a requiem mass for the repose of the soul of Alexis, the son of Pleter the -Great, who was executed by nfs father foivjoining the reactionaries 4 bis time. This is a strong hint of the czar's own views toward reforms. The passion for gambling is carried to a disgusting extreme when the life of a man on trial for murder is made the subject of a bet. The wagers laid on the outcome of the Thaw trial were not the least revolting feature of a pe culiarly distressing case. The average citizen now thoroughly understands the opinions of Mr. Harri man and Mr. Roosevelt concerning each other and is willing to let it go at that. While New York was busy with the discussion of financial complications Ohio took occasion to step forward as i center of interest in national poli tics.

Nye, marine superin tendent of the United States army transport service, who has spent 27 years on the water, registered at the Raleigh yesterday, and for several hours was doing laps in the lobby in an effort to get his land legs back, says the Washington Post. "I have sailed on almost every body of water in the world," said Capt. Nye, "and have never been in an accident. Seven times I have rounded Cape Horn and I have been as far north as 75. It is trite for me to say that one is safer on the water than on land, but anyone who has been sea-going as long as I have cannot believe other wise. Some accidents on the water, of course, are unavoidable, as are some on land, but a large percentage of the disasters, in my opinion, are due to the employment of incompetent men. It is not to be expected that first-class men will long work for the meager wages that are paid by the big steam boat companies and railroad corpora tions. They can make more money elsewhere, and the consequence is there is a continual shifting of the working forces. "I have made it a rule ever since I was first placed in command of a ship in times of danger never to trust any one but myself. If an accident hap pens then. I alone am to blame. Of course, I place trust in my officers, but it is a captain's duty in times of peril to be on the bridge until all danger is past. There have been times when I have spent 72 hours on the bridge without food or sleep. It is to this watchfulness that I attribute in a large measure my success in avoiding accidents. In my opinion a captain who, through cowardice or neglect Jeopardizes the lives of the paaeengers on a steamboat is as much of a crimi nal as is a murderer." Abe Ruef and his San Francisco pals must have felt like amatturs when they heard of those tables in the state, capitol of Pennsylvania which cost the people $1,400 each. Now that Harriman's stenographer is accused of selling his employer's se erets a good many men may conclude] to master shorthand and then dictate1 to themselves. THE PllJKCJETON UNION: THURSDAY, JUtfB 20, 1907. State New9,f ?W Vice President Fairbanks will ad dress the people of Fergus Falls on July 4. The corner stone of St. Paul's new Y. M. C A. building was laid on Fri day afternoon. St. Paul has been selected as the place for the next.'meeting of the Na tional Editorial association. The regents of the university are preparing to establish an experi mental fruit farm near St. Paul. Ben Eistad, a riverman, fell off a log at Sandstone and was drowned al though he was an experienced swim mer. The Minnesota Association of Co operative Creamery Men has decided to establish selling agencies in the principal market cities. H. E. Struckman, a rural mail carrier of Fergus Falls, has pur chased an automobile and will here after deliver the mail by auto instead of by team. Mrs. C. A. Lans, aged 81 years, who resided in the town of Maple Ridge, Isanti county, fell down stairs and broke her neck-on the 10th inst. She had been a resident of the county since 1872. The Minnesota Steel company, a branch of the United States Steel company, which is to build the big manufacturing plant at Duluth, has filed articles of incorpocation with the secretary of state. The capital stock is $10,000,000. John P. Quirk, the Minnepolis gambler, given fifteen years for the killing of William Dowell, a Minne apolis newspaper man, will have to serve his sentence. The supreme court so decrees. Former State Senator William E. Harrington of Hutchinson has become a convert to the proposition that the productiveness of Minnesota lands can be doubled by tile draining and has employed a crew of six experts who will lay for him this year twenty eight miles of tiling, takings one-third of the output of the Hutchinson Brick and Tile Works, one of the largest plants in the state. E. W. Randall, for many years sec retary of the State Agricultural so cietj, resigned last week to accept the deanship of the State School of Agri culture. C. N. Cosgrove was ap pointed to succeed Mr. Randall. Mr. Cosgrove has been president of the society for five years. He will prove a worthy successor to Mr. Ran dall. Genial B. F. Nelson of Min neapolis succeeds Mr. Cosgrove as president. A well dressed man worked a few farmers near Hutchinson for small amounts by representing himself as collection agent for Minnesota daily papers. He carried printed receipt blanks, but persons from whom he obtained money became suspicious and followed him to Dassel and com pelled him to disgorge. He was ar raigned in justice court and given fifteen days in the county jail at Litch field. He gave his name as Max Zoelbe. The White Man In Africa. Our freed negroes have at times been advised to go to Africa and carry the knowledge gained by their race in the midst of white civilization back to their benighted brethren. Africa, it is said, is the negro's proper home, and he can have it to himself because the white man cannot live there. But there Is noTi-^goins on in Africa a wondrous^ work of transformation and reclama tion, instigated and controlled by white genius and white power. Even white farmers thrive there, and European peasantry are to be settled there with a view to making them actual tillers of the soil. European soldiers become acclimated there, and many of them remain from choice after their military service ends. And soldiering, as the white man in Africa prosecutes it, is hard work. As a rule, of course, white men do not perform the hardest toil in tropical Africa. They do not need to. Their best hold is arousing and directing the natives, bringing them out of the tor por of ages. Steam, electricity, and machinery that the sun cannot wilt are doing the work in Africa which even the natives would sink under. Railroads now haul freight into the wilderness where it never went before except a savage chief with his spear or a white man with his gun stood over the blacks who were impressed to "tote" it. Negro women, who take to the woods at the sight of a washtub and pile of clothes, will sit all day at a sewing machine making overalls and jumpers for the black laborers, who think the white man's machine is doing all the work, as it really is. It is no won&er that the sons of Stanley's ar my of fighters, guides and porters will work the best that is in them to ex tend a railroad along Stanley's track in the Kongo wilderness. Negroes are not dead to sentiment nor blind to the fact that white men are now doing things in Africa which their^ traditions told them could not be done except the gods interfered. So in Africa the race issue is a long way off. White and blacktire necessary,the one to the other, the man of brain to the man of muscle. ~*'\K~\A New Cariosity Shop. $!:&% Since the consolidation of the trac tion lines of Manhattan and Bronx boroughs of Greater New York a vast and varied assortment of "lost prop erty" is gathered under one roof. As to the quantity, it is estimated that at least 500 articles are picked up by re sponsible custodians every day on the street car lines and-railroad trains and ferryboats which empty their passen gers into the heart of the metropolis. The number picked up and carried off by unscrupulous persons cannot be known, but it is considerable. In variety the things found by transit employees and turned over to the "lost property" department resembles the as sortment to be seen in a pawnbroker's bargain window. Watches, jewelry and wallets, likewise gloves, furs and umbrellas, do not seem out of place in this flotsam and jetsam of city life. These articles of daily use are natural ly dropped or laid down and forgotten in the confusion of travel. Rain coats, overcoats and novels, too^when not in use, are easily overlooked for the mo ment until it is too late to go back and search the boat or car where the owner remembers to have had them last An other class of "mislaid" articles sug gests that the owner lost himself and that his property, having more poise, stayed put Bundles of schoolbooks Btrapped together, picks, shovels and other cumbersome tools carried by workmen are among the curiosities of the collection. Dogs and cats seem to belong there, for they can help lose themselves. But it would be supposed that caged parrots would be able to call an absentminded owner to his or her senses. From the manner in which a newly arrived immigrant clings to his trunk or chest often even sitting on it in transit, the mislaying of his earth ly all by one recently must be set down to a panic and nothing less. The mother tells her heedless child he would lose his "head if jt were not tied on," and the curiosity shop, where claimants hunt for lost property, has dally proof that adults are every whit as heedless as youngsters. People who travel as a business, so to speak, seem now and then to forget that they are not in their own dooryard and that the surest way to have their odds and ends where they'll be found when wanted is to keep a grip on them from the journey's beginning to the journey's NORTHWESTERN HOSPITAL AND SANITARIUM.
