Smuggling In tile Northwest
Tho operations of tim schooner Halcyon
furnish I fresh Illustration of the scale on
which smuggling is prosecuted along the
Pnelllo coast Tho high duties on opium
and tint grout demand for tho drug make it
n ptincipul subject of illicit importation
Victoria in naturally tho bnso of this busi
ness and it was from that port thut the
Halcyon reeontly started Tilth a cargo of
opium valued nt 830000 Tho success of her
trip to Hawaii whero she smuggled in 1
30000 worth ot It no doubt stimulated her
present exploit which is bellved to bo
t land her cargo In Oregon or California
But this bold attempt ou 1 largo scale Is
the ers usual form of the smuggling
Opium is brought into the United States
oftoiior lu smaller quantities and by a ro
sort to tho moat Ingenious devices Piiget
for smugglers The
Sound Is I paradise slulllen
run across from Victoria and Vancouver
being short and usually sheltered may be
mado by all sorU of boats The sound Is
well studded with Islands and there ate
many opportunities for concealing I night
voyage from the revenue cutters and of
landing at points hidden from observation
The sal craft can take t shallow waters
where thcro Is little danger tho revenue
steamers prowling about after them There
is alto emiiKRlluff sometimes It Is said by
passengers or others on thu largo craft
plying regularly between tho ports of
llritlsh Columbia and ours
The smuggling of Chinamen Is carried on
iiidnsti busty also iu this same region as tho
recent arrest ofToutcd by the cutter Wolcott
indicates In this case tho smuggled art
des aro a good deal bulkier and a some
what different mode of pperatlng Is re
quired Yet it Is evident that the peculiar
ities of Puget Sound lend themselves also
t this form of illegal trafllo and the
rewards for success aro so great that It is
prosecuted at all risks The Vancouver I
boatmen are tempted by the high foes of
forod and the absence of international reg
ulations increases tho extent t which this
business is carried on

tho case tim Importation of Chinamen has
been carried on at Detroit itself It Is evi
dent that on the long stretch of boundary
between tho Dominion and tho United
States there ore plenty of places where It
can bo tried
The bold operations of the smugglers on
tho Paclflo const suggest the need of o
stronger force of revenue vessels In tho
last Congress preliminary steps were taken
to Increase this force both on the Pacific
and tho great lakes The Treasury Do
pertinent has called attention t tho ex
cessive amount of work imposed upon Its
cutters through the Increase both of legiti

demands for the patrolling of Uohring Sea

The Trotter A D 2141
Nancy Hankfifl trolled mile In 207J line
brought to light n record of scientific calcu
lation which shows that tho font was not
simply nn Instance of natures apparent
frcaklshncBri for suddenly producing n
creator of monstrous superiority t its
kind but In accordance with n regular and
normal evolution for which tho higher
mathematics can furnish with substantial
accuracy I table of progress A professor
of Yale and another of Washington Uni
versity have turned a little scleutlllo at
tention to the history and prospects of
tho American trotting records and ten
years ago as our esteemed contemporary I
the Turf Field and Farm shows nis l > rof
NirnFK of Washington published the fig
ures which by his calculations ttio past
predicted for the future carrying them for
ward to thin time when the trotters dovol
opmont should be approximately completed
like tIm running horses today
The llguro of two minutes for tho mile
which since Maud S dropped below 210
has loomed in tho distance of tho Imagina
tion ns perhaps the ideal trotters ultimate
limit gets a place In Prof NIPIIEIIS reckon
ing only ns a I stop in tho march to a goal
far enough beyond to put tho twominute
trotter hopelessly out of nn ordinary free
forall Starting from 1818 the year
of tho that threeminute performance
and observing tho spread and reduction of
records since the oscillation has been made
that In the course ot another century and a
half or in tlio year 2141 tho trotter will
have fairly lapped thin runner and will bo
good for a nub in 141 I Doth divisions of
the equine race will finish their existence
with powers iu the neighborhood of such as
they have then
The argument for Prof NrpnEns espoc
u I i1 sv t
unions rtio most sutisrying is tnat in
Ids tables published ton years ago Which
showed that from 1851 to 1881 tho mathe
matical curvo representing tho Increased
speed calculated for every three years coin
cided with trivial discrepancies with the
line of development In fact the record
foretold for 1892 was 207 Nancy Hanks
has made 207Jiand the year is not over
The record given for 1900 is 204 Who
will bet that it wont come t time Wo
must wait and see Meanwhile we havo
pretty powerful hopes
Verdict and Sentence
For good reasons of his own Mr DONATED
NICHOLHOK of the Tibun declined to ex
press an opinion concerning the honesty ot
tho Now York World Such an opinion
however now rendered In very emphatic
of the United
fashion by tho newspapers UDlte
States without regard to party
Tho response of the press is a verdict
from the highest court I is only necessa
ry to read tho comments which we are
printing from flay to day to understand
how conclusive is tho evidence that has
convicted tho swindlers in Mr JOSEPH Pu
IITZEUS employ and how hearty is the
contempt In which he and his methods aro
held by honest and selfrespecting journals
Not tIm least encouraging feature of this
impressive and indignant verdict Is its
unanimity So far as we can discover not a
single newspaper in tho country has lifted a
pen in behalf of tho swindler or ventured
1 single word in denial defence or exten
uation of the frauds of which the impostor
stands convicted
We may say that this Is precisely what we
expected when wo referred the case of I
JOSEPH PULITZEK and his Now York World I
to tho profession which ho is doing his
mercenary utmost to disgrace
Did Mr CLEVELAND as tim New York

WAunneoTOX Aug S7Ono of tho taiVn sa
sIgned to tho President by Concrcsa rtt IU
rooont session was that of appointing a Board
of three array and three navy officers to ecleot
a alto for a new ordnnncb factory on tho Paclflo
lopo This Board will have to be constituted
lon I ltd report In to ba ready for Congress
at the noxt session Tho reason for Including
fly with ArmY offloors on this Board Is that
tho factory Is to be avnllnblo for furnishing
tho battorlos of Bhlpa as well as forts Bonie
nrmy officers do not rollsh this prospoct of
sharing tho new itabllshmont with tho nnvr
Thoy urge that tho two sorvlcos have sonarato
run factories at West Troy nnd Washington
and that the Qun 1actory Board of several
roars ago nrosontod cogent reasons for keep
ing thcm distinct Thoy argot that tho guns
used aboard ship aro different from thoso of
tho land service nnd that I divided or joint
administrative control Is not wise
I may not bo well to Insist too strongly < on
those objections The establishment of tho
now gun factory will bo opposed undornny cir
cumstances by tome Concreismon and atf
cordlnely It should hnvo In IU favor n Inreo
prospective sphere of public uses Apaln the
navy Is very popular In Congress BO that the
army should bo cautious about rejecting this
valuable ally Finally tho foils would In any
case got tho chief uso of tho now factory
Tho Washington ordnanco yiird now llnlshoa
all tho forglncs that the liutlilchom and 1itts
burgh foundries can furnleh ant that tho
lidos raaulro Tho largest calibre likely to
bo needed for cruisers In the present views of
naval ordnnnoo aro tho IllInch which can
probably be ont with safety by rail to tho IV
clllo for tim few largo ships built there Hence
though Congnm Is planning 1 joint army and
navy factory the forts would bo most con
cerned with It
Turning to tho question of site It scorns
likely that Itcnlcla will bo chosen Oregon
and Washington dispute with California tho
possession of tho factory and tha Chamber of
Commerce of Seattle has urged upon Cun
groas consideration tor establishing It
nt that point

But It Is doubtful whether tho possibilities
of producing pig iron In Oregon and Washing
ton will form an Important clement In tho se
lection of tho factory I Is clear that a great
part of I the manufactured ctlr would i > y used
nt and near Han Francisco In fact tho only
points of much consequence for harbor do
fence outside of California are 1ucut Sound
oulslro Cnlfornll lulot
and tho mouth of the Columbia Accordingly
It Is not I vital objection that tho rough forg
Ings would Imve to be parried to tho neighbor
hood ot San KruncKeo lorllnlahlntand n om
bling the no mil Indeed I the t > Mnhll hmint ot
a gun factory on the 1aolllo coiit does not depend
lllctu rc
pond upon tho ability to produco tho steel
thorp rho argument for llenlcln wai presented
sented by Senator Fnlton ut a hearing hold
during the present year befom tha henate
Committee on Coast Doftncoa The town Is at
the head of Knniuiroa straits a deep channel
tlrlis I dlol
connecting tho bays of Han Francisco nnd
conneetnj is about thirty miles beyond the
range of guns carried by 1 hostile fleet supposing
ranlo Iunq
posing that tho defences of San Francisco are
not fvrced and Is also protected by mountain
ranges Vessels of deep draught reach Its
wharves and tho railroad connections art
ample It has perfect facilities for a proving
ground adjoining tiltl arsenal and Its
proximity to San Francisco aids It In procur
ing both skilled and unskilled labor San
Francisco already has oiionheurth furnaces
capable of casting a 27ton stool forging
However tho question or site will bo care
fully considered by thl now Board Besides
Uonlcla and Koattlo the claims of tho mouth
of the Columbia for this purpose have been
presented Two years ago a Board of three
army odlcers was appolntid I to examine thin
subject In connection with possible sites In
the Mississippi aiiov and on the Gulf coast
Itreportedln favor of placing the factory on
the racillc coast but since Oaalclawns HDO
daily Indicated for thorn to nxaralno they did
not Investigate tho ntnoss of other points on
that coast so that tim now Board has this duty
to perform
The argument a 1nclflo coast gun factory
whatever site may be selected rests upon tho
great number of guns and mortars needed for
our coast defence and the Inability of Wntor
vllet unaided to supply them except after a
groatman > cars Of course assistance will be
given by tho 100 heavy guns and tho lllnch
mortars to bo made under private contract
but ns tho total number of guns ultimately to
be required on tho Paclllc coast Is l estimated
at over GOO It will bo seen that there Is an
abundant Held for u new factory there There

Tar SUN has rendered a valuable iervleo to
honest and legitimate journalism b its com
ploto and conclusive exposure of the Worlds
fraudulent Interviews and bogus cablegrams
Newspaper men have long known the Quack
methods employed by tho World but this Is
tho first time they have over been held UD bo
fore tho public Newspaper readers them
selves are vitally Interested In honest jour
nalism but hardlyas much as those who
make newspapers
Pulitzers bunco methods hnvo Injured jour
nalism and wronged newspaper readers In this
city more than can easily be computed They
reflect upon tho honor of every newspaper
man they havo tondod to bring tho employ
ment or calling Into disrepute Every jour
naljst should rojolco to see them exposed
Nor aro the Worlds efforts to cover up Its
slimy tracks marked by any more prudence
than Its fnklshneas Its plan to havo the bogus
cablegrams sent from tho other side to try to
provo they were originally genuine was bird
wlttod I waq a subterfuge characteristic of
those who toy with buzzsaws and shake
hands with cyclones Only those who have
been romarkaoly successful in frauds would
attempt It I proves tho ok maxim that
fools rush in where angels fear to tread
Tho entire business of fake fraudulent and
fictitious Pulitzer journalism Is so nauseating
and dlSgUStluc to thin RVorairn Infnllloan
AOc that It Is a n wonder t has ever boon attended
with any success whatever The sooner hon
est newspapers rise up and expose and de
nounce It the better
from Me Cliea ITtratd
Tnr SUN convicts the World of manufactur
ing cable specials beyond possibility of er
ror The Worlds pretended cable Interview
with Rchlaparollt on Mars and Its pretended
interview with Prince Bismarck
Dsmnrck are proved
never to have taken place and to have been
cabled only when exposure of Us fraudulent
news service threatened Thon the Inter
view with Bismarck printed a month pre
vious was cabled to London and ordered re
peated to the World Tho exposure forfeits
ho New York World right t ask the rub

The evidence In apparently Indisputable
form is coming to light So far as TUB BUN Is
engaged In an attempt to expose corrupt
fcnd fake it should the
journalism hate hearty
support of every newspaper In the country I
the New York World or any other of the sen
sational sheets of the day manufacture Inter
views and socalled news specials It and Its
ollpwers should be held up to tho world as un
reliable denounced frauds and condemned
as unworthy The fakir In journalism must
go or reliable newspapers will lose tho respect
of tho reading public
from the Iktlllnori Work
Just now TiE SUN is cracking tho ribs of tho
Pulitzer windbag tho World THE SUN seems
to bo getting down to hard plain facts too and
doesnt hesitate to denounce tho World as a
swindler that Imposes upon tho public by the
publication of alleged telegraphic and cable
news which had boon made up In tho World
office Apparently TiE SUN has caught tho
World In a nasty piece of Imposition upon the
public Just how tho World will avoid tho
issue remains to be
ssue le soon
From Its nu invon ool
Every wellInformed journalist has long
known that the socalled enterprise of the
Now York World In K foreign and domestic
correspondence and reports was a sham and
a fraud on the public Many of the tricks of
also protouco wore from time to time exposed
but denied with characteristic audacity and
unscrupulous lying At last this piratical
trickster that hiatitunhly caters to tho most de
praved appetites has been brought to book
of base practices
with a dnmnlng exposure laso Ilraotces
which dishonor reputable journalism and from
vhlch there Is no possible escape consistent
with truth honor or common deconcy Tho
pride of honorable journalism Is honest deal
lag with tile public which tho World has dis
graced by its corrupt and reckless disregard
of all hue recognized principles of the profes
sion Money is tho only god It worships Tho
advice of logo to Iloderigo Is the creed that
rules all Its actions and for which family and
friend would bo freely sacrificed

The New York World seems to have mado a
great mistake In not accepting tho criticism
of U SUN In an humble way and endeavor
ug to profit by It without retorting It Is hard
to conceive of a more torrlhl calamity to a
Bolfrespoctlng newspaper than to find Itself
ho victim of deception from its correspond
ents or from outsldo sources where Imposi
ton Is sometimes practised I Is far more
orrlble for any newspaper to bo detected and
convicted of base Imposition itself conceived
and executed In Its own onice and for the
single and express purposo of deceiving and
imposing upon an honest public
TUB SUN has certainly fastened upon tho
World the charge of manufacturing bogus In
orvlews and calming thor off on Us readers
as honest cable despatches Tho strongest
recommendation that a newspaper has Is to be
ollublo I Is better to havo no news at all
than to havo spurious news nows which has
no foundation In truth or which has merely
enough basis to build a largo superstructure
of fancy upon Having the knowledge of the
truth of the Worlds tricks wo commend Tnt
SUN for Its boldness exposing them Wo do
not believe that newspaper ethics require
silence to bo observed In cases like this I Is
I right and honorable and It Is duo t tho pub
ic as well as to a distinguished and useful
profession that vlllauy should be exposed
rhothor committed In high or low places
The World In a position where a suit of sack
cloth and ashes would be very becoming
from the So union That
The burden of proof rests against Pulitzer
and ho cannot brush his responsibility aside
by pretending that ho does not wish to ad
ortlseTiiR HUN In this Instance TiE SUN
doesnt need advertising half as much as
hn World needs vindicating and If the World
is I not cullty ot the grave crime alltged against
It by Its neighbor it owes It to Itself t Its
reader t Its contemporaries and t the pro
fession of journrllsm to make tho fullest
fairest and clearest explanation of tho matter
III The 7rui Is slow to

The World has been detected in an attempt
to defraud a contemporary out ot 1000 We
say therefore that any man is a fool who wIll
Ventura to contribute a dollartotha UnrM1

a member of the Democratic party that the
fund gathered by a disgraced and dishonest
newspaper will be used honestly
From fAe St Ionic CkronMt
This adds another to the long list of Pulitz
ers crimes against decency in journalism
From Ae JlarforJ burant
THE SUN has now completed and clinched
the proof of the truthfulness of Its charges
that the Now York World first foisted bogus
cabled specials on tho public and then
when menaced with Ignominious exposure
tried to save Itself by cabling the stuff ore
portion ot It to London with instructions to
have it recabled in hot haste to New York
What the World will deem it advisable to
cay or do now we dont know nor la it a mat
ten ot any particular consequence Very likely
it will continue to publish large editions and
find purchasers and readers and make money
But a very serious thine has befallen It
whether its proprietors are conscious of the
fact or not Its reputation has now definitely
followed Its character overboard The World
may not miss it much at first but it will feel
resultant inconveniences as time goes on
TurkIsh Official Trying to Shield the
JUollem Offender
WASHINGTON Aug Constantinople de
spatches saying that the burning the house
of the Ilev Dr Bartlett the American mission
ary at Bourdour Asia Minor for which prompt
reparation has boon demanded by the United
States has been traced to the carelessness ol
an American servant aro quite at variance
with reports made by the American Board of
Commissioners for Foreign Missions and
transmitted to tho State Department and are
also contradicted by despatches received from
Mr Pendloton King tIm American ChargiS d
Affaires at Constantinople
The experience of the American Legation in
Turkey in tho case of numerous preceding
outrages of a like character has boon that the
facts in each case have boon mot by denials
from Sold Pntiha this Turkish Minister of Jus
tice sometimes In the taco of the clearest
proof and some plausible excuse like that in
the present Instance has been assigned to ex
plain away the occurrence Minister IHrsoh
has more than once put on record In his offi
cial despatches to the State Department that
though till Grand Vizier and the Minister ot
foreign Affairs of Turkey wore willing to do
justice to American citizen when wronged
Jald Pasha by misrepresenting the facts to
ho Sultan had delayed redress
The present explanation of time Bartlett out
rage Is regarded ns a repetition of Bald
1aslmn adroit manoeuvres to defeat tile ends
of justice and to shield Moslem offenders
against the treaty rights of Christians It Is I
understood that the explanation will not delay
tue peremptory orders given to tho gunhoutn

Itootn and lllno Koom and thin result was found
so satisfactory that It has been followed up as
far as appropriations would permit this year
Plans have boon drawn and accopUd to
