Hiikrman of Illinois, thnt the right of petition has been abused, and we hold with Senator Hustino that, while thn peo ple tlo not want war, "they won't be hacked down from a righteous posi tion because they are afraid or be cause of an active minority." The searchlight should be turned on this latest enterprise of the American Em bargo Conference. The Nerretary of the Treasury and the Bubonic Plague. The Incident at Callao Is satisfac torily explained by Secretary McArso, so far as the charge of deliberate discourtesy to the Peruvian authori ties Is concerned. On a somewhat vague mission of pleasurable politics Mr. MrAnoo has been travelling around South America on the United States man-of-war Tennessee. The Peruvian Government made elaborate preparations to en tertain his party upon Its arrival from Valparaiso. There was great disappointment In Lima when the Ten nessee, after a very brief stay In the port of Cullao, departed for Halboa carrying the distinguished passengers for whom the festivities hud beep prepared. The affair was even repre sented ns u heartless nffront to one of the friendliest of our sister repub lic beyond the canal. ' Mr. McAnoo now Informs the Treas ury Department by wireless from tho Isthmus that the captain of the Ten nessee had been notified by General Uokthals of the existence at tho one of a quarantine against Cnlluo. When the Tennessee reached Callao the Peruvian health officers reported to the ship's doctor tho presence of several cases of bubonic. The captain of the Tennesseo accordingly forbndo any officers or men to go ashore ; and after a few hours In port the vessel proceeded northward. Yesterday the Peruvian Consul-Hen-eral nt New York published n Mute ment declaring that "the sanitary con ditions In Peru are absolutely nor mal, and are thn same to-day us they were when the Hon. Klihu Moot visited Peru." It Is possible, of course, thnt Consul General Kouaiwo Hiooinson has not yet received medical Information that Is In the possession of the sanitary authorities of the Canal Zone; for It Is not conceivable that those very vigilant officers should wantonly or without Mifllclcnt reason Impose n quarantine against so Important a port ns Onllao. Secretary MrAoon'n despatch to the Treasury Department continues: "Drs. Thompson and Robertson, the shlp'a physicians, strongly advlasd thnt no member of the commission go ashore. The dilemma was frankly explained to members of the Teruvlan Cabinet, who had coma on board. All realized the awkwardness of the situation, but recoir- nlied the, necessity for accepting the advice of the ship's doctors. "NotwIthaUitdlnv this, I went ashore myself, ajid arrived In l.lma about half- past 11 A, M where I was cordially received by the President. 1 explained to him the unfortunate developments which prevented our commission from coming anhore and cart-ylns" out the plana to generously arranged for us. returned to the ship st half past 4 P. M., accompanied from I.lms to Callao by the Peruvian Mlnliter of Finance and other hlsh officials. While every one was distressed about the matter, all recognised that It waa unavoidable." We nre bound to sny that this ac quits Mr. McAuoo of any Intention to affront the Peruvian Government. In deed, his statement shows that of all the passengers on the Tennessee he alone was willing to brave, and In fact he alone did brave, the dnngcrs of Infection at Callao and l.lma in the Interest of International courtesy und for the gratification of the Peruvian authorities eager to receive him. Yet this explanation, so creditable to Mr. McApoo'n personal courage and devotion to ofllclnl duty, leaves un solved one mystery of chronology. Tho other passengers and the ofilcers und crew of the Tennessee, by remain ing on the ship while ut Cnlluo on April 23, escaped detention In quaran tine upon their arrival at Ilulbou on tho morning of April 27, they being then within the period of suspicion. The Secretary of the Treasury had been exposed to bubonic as late us the afternoon of April 23, and was therefore suspect for at least twenty four hours after his arrival at the Zone. The report of his participation In entertulnnients on tho Isthmus on I tli.it very luy, Incliiilliu: a dinner at .V,,, , ,i, , ,.. Ciiliiii In honor of the party, must be Incorrect; for the tjtiii rant Itio system nf the Canal .one Is rigid ami Im partial, and It recognizes no ofllclnl immunity In the case of bubonic. The Secretary must therefore have uudcritnnc the o,tmruiit!ne which his companions escaped, The Cuult ak Hero. (Vedlt where credit is title, believes Captain I. mil fUiii-soN, forty pounds heavier when he sailed away than when he lirnuulit back the berl-berl stricken schooner Tlfton with Its tiliosillke nlllii'rs and crew. In his voyage to the west coast of Africa, "a blow In hell and buck," ho says Hint the ship and every human helm: allxe 011 her were saved not by his iiiivlcallon, able seamen or I'lnvl deuce, hut by the cook, It takes 11 real man to praise -his cook; It Is easier to tflury lu his workti and Ignore ihe author. Napo- i.ko! acknowledged the cook'a worth when he said that an army travelled on lis stomach. Hoiikrt HrrvrnN said cooks nre "gentlemen," nnd old Dr. Pmmik remarked that "we have some good families In Knglaud of the name of Cook or Cookk," and that they alt "originally sprang from real professional cooks." William the Ojnqticror bestowed a manor on the maker of n dish that pleased him on his coronation day. And so thn trib utes might he extended lo pnges. There Is nothing to Indicate that the cook on the Tlfton was better than thn usual run of cooks on mer chant vessels and they are all gen erally considered poor. He may have drunk nil the liquor In thn lockers. sworn like Uncle Tonv's armies In Klnndcrs and ruled the galley like the thoroughly Intrenched tyrant of a suburban kitchen. The sklpiwr may have wished n hundred times it day to kick him over thn rail, hut he did not, nnd see the reward of his for bearance. Says Captain Cari.hon: "H stayed on deck, and when be naw a Hint or when the wind changed he called down to me. I was pretty nearly ul I In and ha called me about every five minutes, but I must any the cook was a handy man. Talk about having able seamen under the now shipping law ! I'd rather have a handful of cooks like blm In a good blow than all the seamen I ever saw." Some one ncknowledged years ngo that we could get along without al most anything except cooks, and since we must hnvn them, why not .show forbearance? Who knows but thnt cir cumstances may develop other heroes or heroines of the runge, or perhaps even good cooks? At least. If Is easier to praise them thnn to discharge them. The skipper of the Tlfton has set a good example. General Maxwell In Ireland. The Rrltlsh Government wisely ties Ignated a Scotsman to administer martial law in Ireland. An old Rugby football player, Mnjor-Genernl Sir John Gremcli. Maxwki.l Is likely to be In good condition at fifty-seven. He will need to be a strong man. mentally as well as physically, to deal with the dangerous situation. It Is singular thnt all of General Maxwell's active service hns been In Africa from the day he Joined the famous Black Watch, Forty-second Highlanders, as n subaltern In 1870. From first to last he saw it great deal' of fighting, steadily winning promotion either as a commander of troops or ns n staff officer. At Oindurman, when still under forty, he led a brigade with the rank of Colonel. In the Hoer war he commanded tho Four teenth Hrlgnde. From 1P08 to 1012 Sir John Mat- wei i, wits at the head of the forces In Kgypt. He nppears to he a man of executive ability, for while the Hoer war was still In progress he served as -Military Governor of Pretoria, a post that was no sinecure. The Rrltlsh Government knows Its man probably; but General Maxweil will have to be cool headed and toler ant, as well as swift to act and reso lute, in order to succeed In his work of restoring pence In Ireland. Thn Government has set the Kgyptlnu vet eran n tusk thai bristles with proli lems and difficulties. The Shelter Island Deer. The nfflclul battue nf tho deer on Shelter Island mi May Day Is Justi fied by no less n lover of wild life than Dr. William T. Hounaiici, di rector of the New York Zoological Garden, who has given tip the prob lem of Uow to dispose nf the unwel come deer otherwise. "There Is ab solutely no way out," he says, as It would he "practically Impossible to catch theso tleer so as to transfer them from Shelter Island to r.oolnel cal parks or to Ramo preserves." Why when the raiiKo of the deer Is m limited on Shelter Island Is It Im possible to round them up and capture them' We undertake to sny. Mutt "Huffalo" .Tn.sr.s, If he is still about, would undertake the job with the assistance of cowboys nnd pet the last deer alive. Unfortunately publicity wns not given to the plan of the Conservation Commission until the arrangements! had been matlo to exterminate these beautiful and Inoffensive iinlmulN, which were not naturally on Shelter Island as wild game hut were brought there seven years ago by a summer resident like entile to adorn his estate.

To tub KntTos or Tine Sun Hlr: We nre wllneealng an odd exhibition of the degree In which present day Instruction, both scholastic and popular, falls short of Impressing upon sny but a speclallted few the fundaments! truths of science.

Profesaor Knrlcnt's motor fuel commands notice by virtue of the pub licity It has Kulned. It is given nut that the basis of this fuel Is water, to which a certain "chemi cal" or combination of "chemicals" Is added, whereupon (or by passing through the "chemicalized" water the electric cur- tent from an ordinary dry cell) hydro ten gas is generated and fed t the engine for producing power in place of vuporlird gaaolone. Ju water the chemical combination of two parts by weight of h)drogen to six teen parts by weight of oxygen is what Is termed a very etable one; that Is, the hydrogen and oxygen have a very fast bold Upon each other, and exactly as much energy, In one form or an other, must be applied to water to ob tain its hydrogen gas as you can ob tain from that giui when you have got It and exploded It In an engine. To gel from u.iter enough hydrogen gas by electrical decomposition to develop a home-power when exploded requires that al least an electrical horae-powcr be passed through that water; and even this la only in thtoty, for In practice a great deal more Is required. The current available from a dry' cell, or from a battery of dry cella, uch as la used for auxiliary ictilt ioti in mnia cars, could not under an circumstances within the r.wigc of clenllllc law pio duce from water enough hydrogen to de velop more than a small fraction of a horsepower when exploded In an auto engine. And In snr raao an auto en gine will not deliver nearly Its full power when run upon hydrogen ga. though it could by changing the car burner be made to turn over on n hy ilrogen and air mixture. The power de- eloped depends on the weight of gas exploded, and aa hydrogen la many times lighter than gasolene vapor, and the cylinder capacity of ntt engine Is unchangeable, not nearly enough weight of hydrogen can be got Into the cylinder to cuuw sn explosion of the necessary degrcw of strength, If It H asserted that the chemical Itaelf decomposes the water Into 7sies the law Mill holde.

You could stilt see, sometimes, a "tlowery Hoy" of the type thnt Chan frau presented on the atngn, promenad ing th sldewHlM with a "Howery rial" on his arm, and you made way for them respectfully If ynu were prudent. (loop skirls were coming In, and the "Gal" wore exaggerated one. Do not, by the way, Imagine that "(lal" was a term of reproach or that It implied any thing out of tho way.

That wns before my time, but I mv much of thn trouble In the six day Draft Riot, and the Howery was no place for a deacon's daughter that week, Kven then the decadence of the Bowery bad begun. The trees that bad adorned It had mostly disappeared, for at that time and for years afterward a tree was about the only obstruction that was not tolerated In a New York street, and the beautiful ones that gave the old llouwerie Its name had been le muved elrher by old ge or the ae. And the character of the street bad changed ns Ktfth aenue Is now chang ing.

These men were on the border'when Mr. Wil son became President, and there wns no tenson for their being there other than tho prospect of eventual hostilities. U was durlnc the early part of Mr. Wil son's administration nlso thnt a power ful lleet was assembled In the harbor of Vera Cruz. Preparations of this sort do tail, ns u rule, Indtcato peaceful In tentions. When Mr. Wilson assumed the Presi dency our t dictions with Mexico were already very much strained, and he strained them still further by demand ing the teslguallon of President Huerla nearly three years ago. .lust two years ago Vera Cruz was bouibuided and seized by Mr. Wilson's order, ostensibly to avenge, an Insult to the American Hag; and to this day there has been incessant meddling In Mexico's internal affairs by our Government. Any one who believes this sort of thing can go on without the risk of war is possessed of a degree of Ingenuousness that has no plaeo outside of a kindergarten. As a matter of fact, every one who followed our dealings with Mexico knew that trouble was bound to come of them : et when General Fuuston was ordered , t ' f lncn n , Infantr y companies of a scant fifty K( h,(,h g , ccnt Mow pca(.B t, uhl, th() follr t,,lUcr.sc of the ,,..,, ,,-,,,, AHniPr.. attached to the to vera Cruz his latins were woiuuy ))a ( lH(.K,.(i 170 animals of their full i-.mildr men!

Two jears Is not a long time, but it Is enough to accomplish moro than hns been done. It is long enough to recruit our existing regiments to something like normal strength ; nevertheless, we rend of Major Tompkins at Parr.il with his "squadron'' of 111 men. or not quite lucnt-nlne men to a troop.
