LONG T[RM Of CAPTIVITY. Monday ..is. 'Elle'n Stone, the l ins elolnary captured by brigands, will 'have, .spent nearly a half year dn captivity. She was cap tulrd Septi'n'hor 3. All told, about $61,000 ha ve' been raised by popu lar subsuieri]rtion IO pay the ransom de manded by 'ht'r c'aptors, bilt so far U'nited States Consul I)hIkinson has been unable to effect 'her rlease. The fact that Ih(e s~aptlve is still In the hands of hier ab ductors at tDhe end of li\'ve itontdls' effort to secure her I'tl.'edolli speaks but poorly for those who 'hilV' i'llen in charge of 'the negotiations. The hoard of foreign mnlssions and Consul Dicklnson have the ransom money ready, and the ,sum Is even Itl excesh if the aliounIt demandse. But there is a hitch In the proceedings and no heeadway has been made for sev eral months. The question that now arises 1s: If five months lk not long enough to effect the captive's release, how much tlime will be required? The Lincoln Republican club of Ana conda is In all respects the best organ ized campaign club In the state. It is well ofilcered, and Its members are as loyal and enihusiastle as their leaders. 'No differences are allowed a place In the club's deliberations and the organiza tlon presents a solid front to its party foes. As an import'ant branch of the atate's organization the Lincoln Itepub Ilcan club of Anacolda is entitled to every praise. Before the senate committee yester day Governor Taft made the statement that a compar.ion 'between the Filipino and the Spaniard was 'immensely in favor of the former. Pub)lic sentiment for a number of years has clung to the belief that only dead Rlpaniards were really of the better class, and Governor Taft's statement seems to bear out this impres dlon. A heartlems judge in Chicago lies ap pointed a receiver for'the c~hurch of John Alexander D owic, who claims to be the retinearnate Elijah. This fraud, who professes to 'have some of thq qualities of the prophet who ascended In the chariot of fire, Is drlifting dangerously lnear a ride In the patrol wagon. The modesty of Santos-Dumont has lone more than anythlng else ,to make him popular. Hlls disincllnatI'sn to "crow" over his a.hievements convinces every one that he Is 4 "lird," or something very near 1it. PRINCE IENRY. What manner of man is Prince Henry of Germany, who is coming to call upon the people of the Un'ted States In in formal style and mingle with them as cordially as a prince may? That's a question In which considerable interest centers. The answer to the query gives rlse to no misgivings respecting the ca plcity of the royal sailor to enjoy lis visit. Hle Is bred to the sea, having salled around the world before he was out of his teens, and has little of the pomp and citrcumstance of courts about 'him. He is said to lack much of the brusqueness of 'his brother, the kaiser, and can make himself at home in any quarter of 'the world,, afloat or afheore, met-ting citizens of foreign nations with easy courtesy and perfect freedom from affectation or pose. Had he been in the harbor of Manila when Admiral Die trichb came near precipitating interns tional complications there would 'have been no friction between the naval com rmanders. He speaks English perfeotly and Is affable and entertaining without sharing with 'his brother the ability to respond eloquently to after-dinner toasts. While Prince Henry is making 'his tour of this country's principal cities he willl, in all probability, find himself growing immensely in i.,ularity. He is the kind of visitor who will not incline ito overdo the part most becmning to him las a guest. LARGEST PRINTING OFfICE. The United States printery at Wash Inkton, where the publications of the government 'are turned out, is the largest ertablishment of Its kind in the world. Tih, new printing oflice now In course of conrtructlion is projected on Li niiiaglilicent sale,. It will be coinpleteil some tineo cldurtilg the Iprestentf year and will house 14,000 employes. The stru'o ture will cost nearly $2,500,000. The Iln innse nu' bellll r iof reporlts of varilous de paitrtment, and other publications of the govi'rnicmnt requiresio ri ll:lnllnth e.slai lishlmlnt, tiloroughly e(quipped, to turn out its wo'k. riThe new plant is inl kt'i'p ing with the national policy of woril wide exp.tnsluist, antid, by the' way, :a lOllntat:a Il lanl IS ill ,'n h ,rge' of the e ti(' I ( t trks.

A lecturlr on law at llar vald has secured an injunction restrain ing students from taking shorthaltLI notes, aInd seelllng tlhem to young meti who have plenty of money and are anl bilious to got through school with a minimum amount of mental effort. What effect this restralning order will have upon Harvard's r'op of lawyers, only those who make a business of detecting the presence of approaching calamity can tell. e'arnegle hais suggested a fund for In digent newspaper men, instead of a home, as suggested by Henry Watter son. nBut the steel magnate gives no hint of his intention to either donate or build. The whole matter is a pIoetic fancy of the editor of the mint Julllp state. Many an old and needy news paper man is richer than Carnegie was before he began to give his money away. The president of the United SBates Is a man whose breadth of understanding embraces the W"rest as well as the East, and he is heartily in favor of Irrigation for Ihe arid lan ds of the Western, states. If the present congress passes a bill ploviding for national Irrigation, the gratitude of the people of the states benefited will be due Theodore ltoose velt. A jailer's wife in Plttsburg, l'a., be came infatuated with a handsome crim inal and enabled shim to break out of prison. The fact that there was a wo man at tlhe bottom of It, gave the case sensational phases that made it the feature of the news until the criminal and his crack-bradned accomplice were captured. The congressmen who voted against the bill to provide "for the shelter an.l protection of the officers and enlisted men of the army on duty in 'the Phillp pines" must 'have been hopelessly at sea regarding the sentiment of ,the country. Their conduct excites general condemna tion and disgust. The Amerlcan people, regardless of party, 'are In favor of building up 'the merch a. marine. Democratic politi cians characterize 'the ship subsidy bill as a "steal" show a narrow partisan feeling In a matter Into which no poll tics can properly be allowed to enter, Glueslping in mid-ocean by vessels over a hundred miles apa't is a common oc currence since wireless telegraphy has come 'Into use, As yet, however, the vessel on whichl Marconi has taken pas sage has m.ot held a gabfest with odban liners. A WISE ADMIRAL [DetrdAt J. Admiral Schley has given short shrift to the rumor that he would be a presl dentlal candidate in 1904. The admiral has, as it were, strung the story to the yard arm and shied marlin spikes at it* He prefers to be a sailor. He woul4lot j,opard any fame he hap won on the ocean by holding down the executive chair at Washington. What he wants is the love and esteem of the people and a secure niche in the hall of fame. The admiral's language Is crisp and pertinent enough. It is timely, too. No one can say that he waited to gauge public opinion before making his Chai cago announcement. On the very I'est occasion In which he had a chance to speak in public and address a national audience he definitely pushed aside the civic crown that the political artiflcers were bent on making for him. His man ly frankness in dealing with a ticklish situation will vastly increase that pop. ularity which he protests is his most precious belonging. Admiral Schley may well be commend ed. for turning his back on a presidential campaign that would be filled with bit ter personal invective and baseless rec riminations. He wisely saves his coun try the ignominy of an election contest In which the merits of the candidates would be sacrlficed for the discussion of a futile quarrel in the navy depart ment. It is quite in line with his gen tle genial nature that he refuses to stir up a subject that would sear the na tional honor and give rise to a lot of bitter talk, to be as bitterly regretted afterwards. In the heat of camnlpalgn It is conceivable that unbridled things would be said which would not look well on record and would give point to the jeers of Europe that republics are ungrateful. Fromn such a contingency Admiral Schley, like a true patriot, de livers himnself and ails country at one stroke. Admiral Schley has only to look over the history of his own country to com fort himself on his decision. There have been soldiers in the white house but It would be a bold man who would say that their experience as chief ex ecutives added largely to their reputa tion. Martial heroes invariably lose some thing of their flavor when tied down to a civil office. The same power of com mand that operates so well in the fer vor of battle must be curbed and bitted In the presence of many conflicting opin ions. The result Is that the great lead er appears before the people as being led and to that extent he suffers In popular estimation. When the crisis is over the necessity for strenuous ac 'ion to some extent vanishes and though performance may be as prompt and de cisive as ever, it is masked under con stitutional forms and verbal diplomacy. It in another case of Hercules and the distaff of Onmphale. President Roosevelt probably finds the white house the most difficult proposition he has tackled yet. If it were not for his large experience in gubernatorial functions, he might find It a hard mat ter to preserve his reputation for mas terfulness and resources which the Span ish war conferred on him. 13ut Admiral Schley is a sailor, has always been a sailor. He is a novice in politics and a brief scrutiny of po litical methods increases his dislike. Ile realizes that the duty of a hero is to stay on his pedestal and not to come down to take part in things he knows nothing about. Welcome to Henry. [Indianapolis News.

[New York Press.] A woman's logic moves backward Just like a crawfish, but it doesn't go so straight. THE CASE OF MISS STONE [San Francisco Ilulletin.J ! The gratifying intelligence is received that Miss Ellen Stone, an American mis sionary to the less progressive regions of enlightened Europe, is about to be released from captivity. Miss Stone had committed no offense against the author ities, unless teaching school and praech ing the Gospel is in that part of Europe considered an offense. Her capture was a speculation which has turned out much better than could reasonably have been anticipated. It is true that but little more than one-half the ransom demanded has been paid, but the captors are doubtless satisfied. They banked on the opulence and lib erality of the American people, and their trust was not ill-founded. There has been some talk of action by the state department to recover the ransom money, and to bring the Turkish or the Bulgarian government to an ac counting. If responsibility could be clearly proved against either govern ment, the state department would have a tolerably clear case. That the offense was committed there is no doubt. It seems, however, to be one form of rob. bery which the brigands regard as a legitimate industry. Neither the suzerain country nor its dependent, which shelters itself under the wing of the more powerful govern ment, admits responsibillty. Bulgaria has no status as an independent na tion, and Turkey adpmits its inability to prevent such outrages in Bulgaria as the one complained of. Probably Turkey would not protest against a naval dem onstration against Bulgaria by the Unit ed States, but as the province is an in land division of he Turkish empire, a naval demonstration would only serve to distribute among the people of the offending nation a large amount of Amer ican coin. But the $60,000 which Is being paid the brigands as ransom money will be well expended if it suggests to American mis sionary organizations the impossibility of affording adequate protection to mis sionaries in semi-civilized or barbaric countries. An unenlightened people may have their religion and may even per suade themselves that they have a kind of natural right to repel attacks upon it. The missionary societies themselves called a halt in the raising of ransom monley for Miss Stone, on the ground that the payment of a large sum of money would establish a precedent which might cause the capture of missionaries to develop into an industry. Without doubt much of the excitement that has resulted from tlhe capture of M4ss Stone is due to the fact of sex. A woman in the hands of lawless men awakens the chivalrous impulses of a people. Equality of rights between meni and women ceases to be a tangible con dition when one woman is at the mercy of a number of men.
