London. April S.— An article on Cecil Rhodes by
W. T. Stead will appear in the forthcoming number
of 'The American Review of Reviews." The ar
ticle, excerpts from which follow, consists of a
frank, powerful explanation of Cecil Rhodes's views
on America and Great Britain, and for the first
time sets forth his own inmost aims. It was writ
ten by himself • ) Mr. Stead in ISM. In those days
•y r ptead was not only one of Mr. Rhodes's most
Ultimate friends, as indeed he was til! the last, but
also his executor. Mr. Stead's name was only re
moved from the list of the trustees of Mr. Rhodes'?
vcVil on account of the war. which forced the two
BMD into vehement political opposition. Of this
episcde Mr. Stead says:
Kr Rhode^'s action was only natural and. from
point of view, desirable, and It
< r " r--, wa.y affected my attitude as political con
related to Mr. Rhodes's world
T3 its throe columns of complex sentences the
whole philosophy of Mr. Rhodes's international and
Individual life is embraced. Perhaps It can best be
sucsnarized as an argument in favor of the organ
ization of a secret society, on the lines of the Jesuit
Order, for the promotion of the peace and welfare
of the world, and the establishment of an Amerl
can-Brltish federation, with absolute home rule for
the component parts.
"I am a t>3d writer." said Mr. Rhodes in one port
at what might bo called his confessions, "but
through HOT ill connected sentences you can trace
the lay <>: icy ideas, and you can give my idea Ike
literary clothing that Is necessary."
Mr. Stead refused to edit the letter, saying:
I think the public will prefer to have these rough.
hurried and sometimes uncrammatical notes qjt
actly as Mr. Rhodes scrawled them off, rather than
have them supplied with literary clothing by any
one else.
Mr. Rhodes began by declaring that the key to
Us idea for the- development of the English speak
ing race was the foundation of a "society copied.
as to organization, from the Jesuits." combined
with "a differential rate and a copy of the United
States Constitution.*'
America both in its yossibilities of alliance and
its attitude of a commercial rival, was. apparently.
ever present in Mr. Rhode's Bind. He wrote:
'The world, with America in rhe forefront, is de
vising t iriffs to boycott your manufactures. This
is the supreme question. 1 believe that England,
with fair play, should manufacture for th-> world.
a.nd being a free trader. I believe that until the
•world comes to its lie i ii . you should Hectare war.
I mean a commercial war. with those trying to boy
cott your manufactures That is my programme,
you r..-- • finish the war by a union with America
and universal peace aftor a hundred years."
Toward this millennium. Mr. Rhodes believed the
inos-; powerful factor would be "a secret society.
organized like Loyola's, supported by the accu
jaulat*d wealth of those whose aspiration is a de
sire to do something," and to whom is spared the
"hideous annoyance" daily created by the thought
s.s to which "of their Incompetent relations" They
should leave thoir fortune. These wealthy people.
Mr. Rhodes thought, would thus be greatly relieved
and be able to turn' "their ill-gotten or Inherited
gams to some advantage."
Revertirg to himself. Mr. Rhodes said:
It Is a fearful thought to feel you. possess a pat
ent and to doubt • ether your life will last you
through ihe circumlocution • ■:' the Patent Office. I
fcave that inner conviction that If I can live I have
thought out BOaaething that is worthy of being
regist^r^d in the Patent Office. The fear is. t?nati
I have time and opportunity T and I believe, with
ell the enthusiasm red in the soul of an Inventor.
that It is not self-glorification that I desire, but
ihe wish to live and register my patent for the
benefit of those who, I think, ar>- th..- greatest peo- :
pie the world has ever Been, but .nose fault it is
that ••■ ■ ''':■■ not know their s:r<r-ngih. their groat- ■
ness or their destiny, but who are wasting their
time la minor or local matters, but. being alseep,
do not know that through the. invention of steam
and ectricity, and. in view of their own enormous
increase, they must now be trained to view the
world ....... and not only to consider the so
cial questions of the British Isles. Eve.". a Labou
cherf- who possesses no sentiment, should be
ta-jght that fie labor of England is dependent on
the outside world, and that, as far as 1 can see.
the outside world, if he does not look out. will boy
cott the result of English labor.
Again, be says:
The are calling the now country Rhodesia, I find
I am human, and should like to be living after my
death Still perhaps, i: that name is coupled with
the object of England everywhere it may convey
UK discovery of an idea which ultimately l^d to
the cessation of all wars, and one language
throughout the world. the patent V.einc the gradual
ahforptJor, of wealth and human minds of the
hipher orofr to the object.
What an awful thought it i.= that if. even now. we
could arrange with the present members of the.
United States Assembly and our House of Commons
the peace of the world would be secured for all
eternity. Wo could hold a federal Parliament— five
years in Washington and five fears in London.
Mr Rhodes added:
The only thing feasible to carry out this idea Ira
secret society gradually absorbing the wealth of th"
world to be devoted to such an object.
There is Baron Hirsch. with (30.000.00% very soon
to cross the unknown border and struggling in the
dark to know what to do with Ms money, and so
one might go on ad inrinitum.
Mr. Rhodes says further:
Farcy the charm to young America just coming

own country an.i do not know what to tackle next.

■whole world. Their present President IMr. Har

•would intrigue in Canada. Argentina and Brazil, to
the exclusion of England. Such a brain wants but
little to Ff-e the true solution. He is still groping in
the dark, but very near the discovery, for the
American has boon taught tho lesson of home rule
and of the success of leaving the management of
the local pump to the parish beadle. He does not
burden his House of Commons with the responsi
bility of cleansinc the parish drains. The present
josition cf the English House is ridiculous. i<"i

fpeakir.s world of taking the responsibility for the
still uncivilized world." and commenting upon the
necessary departure from the map of such coun
tries as Portugal, Persia and Spain, "who are
found wanting." Mr. Rhodes said:
- What rcopo! Whs* a horizon Of work for the
Mat two centuries, for the b*st energies of the best
leople in the world.
On the matter of tariffs Mr. Rhodes was char
ectorlstira'ly positive. He says
I note with satis action that the comrnlttoo ap
pointed to inquire Into the McKinley tariff reports
that in certain articles our trades have fallen off
50 p^r cent. Yet the fools do not see that if they
do net look out they will have England shut out

Father Spotanskl, of St. Joseph's Roman Catholic

The burglars compelled Father Bpotansld to wlt

"William H. Bell was the owner of a farm of on«»
hundred acres near Lockport, twenty-two of which
c r * sowed to certain oats purchased of Frank B.
Mills, who lived near Syracuse and carried on a
largo seed business Early in the year Mills issued
a catalogue, in which he guaranteed that all seed?
Fold by him should be In "trood condition, fresh and
true to name." He also advertised in the cata
logue a variety of oats called the "Record Breaker."
concerning which he stated
■ After readlne the experience of my Customers In
growing this oat. is there one that can doubt that
this is not coins to be a lea/Jin? variety? Order
early, for you certainly cannot make a mistake.
Frice of choice Ftock. well cleaned, as follows." etc.
Bell received this catalogue, read the guarantee
and the advertisement of the "Record Breaker"
variety of oats, nnd ordered by mail sixty bushels.
The oats were put up in twenty bags, and In each
bap was a card statin* that all seeds were "fresh,
pure, clean and true to name, and if such should
not be the case. I will refill the order free of charge,
providing sufficient proof is given me within a. rea
sonable length of time "
Bell took the oats into his field opened the bags
and read th* cards, and observed that the oats were
•plump and looked weir 1 He sowed forty-four
bu«hels of the oats on twenty-two acres. He was
parts of three days sowing the twenty-two acres
when he discovered seeds of noxious and foul
weeds ir. the oats, which turned out to be mustard
■Mas Correspondence then ensued between Beil
and ' Mills which resulted in Pell's brlnjrinK an
action against mils in the Supreme Court, County
of Niagara, for fl.fiOO damages.
T-pnn the trial the Jury r«ndere<J a verdict for
JVO The Appellate Division, however, has reversed
the action of the trial term upon several grounds,
one being that the verdict was excessive, in that
it was shown and undisputed, that the value of
the whole twenty-two acres was only $990, and that
it d'd not appear but that with some care and at
tention for a year or two every plant and peed could
b*- disposed of and the farm be entirely relieved
