There hardly could be a strongei r ondemnation of autocracy than the record of illiteracy of the Russian em pire. Seventy-five per cent, of there cruifs for the army, in which service ls CHni J>ulsory, can neither read noi write. Newspapers are published, nol for the masses, but for an educatec minority. The principal paper in the capital of the empire lias a circulation of only 33,000 and others with an in fornational reputation have only aboul one-third that many subscribers. With these facts before us there is no room to wonder at the backwardness of the Russian empire and no one can fail to perceive why it has typified mere brute strength in the affairs of the world and was feared for that reason alone until the giant was laid prostrate by the intelligence of a smaller and Physically weaker nation. Were czar dom the benevolent institution that its lv tT and advo ™tes would have the world believe the people of Russia would not be sunk in such depths of ignorance as is shown by unimpeachable records, jf Russia is -V he " lace among nations to Which its population and area entitle vastly more money will have to be spent on schools.

This caused some " to be expressed as to the au thenticity of extracts from a United State's consul's reports as to the in crease of wheat production in the northwest provinces which were pub lished during the excitement attend ing the recent wheat corner. The in crease of wheat production in the Canadian northwest has been almost sufficient to stagger belief. It will be a great blessing to the crowded cities o the earth whose cry goes up f or bread. Although the battleships Alabama Maine, Kentucky and liearsarge are comparatively new additions to the navy, they are all going out of com mission for heavy repairs, which in the rase of the Maine in particular will amount almost to reconstruction. In addition to work on her hull, the •Maine will have to receive a new bat tery of boilers. The rapidity with which, battleships become worn and obsolete is surprising to those who have been imagining that navies built of steel are good for many decades of service with little expense or repairs. Ihe truth is that these big ships must be undergoing protective "tinkering" r.il the time, from the date of launch ing until that of final retirement. The Russian ministry of commerce has prepared an elaborate plan provid ing for the general improvement of all the seaports of the empire at a cost of $110,896,237. The amounts which it is planned to expend at Baltic ports ag gregate J 14.011,862. This is a large amount of money, but Russia will get more in return 'or it than if she were to spend it all in the race for naval supremacy. Navies can be obtained eno »Sl> When nations are prosper ous; and the only way in which pros perity can be secured is by enterprise such as that indicated in the deter mination to give Russia seaports that will accommodate the commerce of the world.

PRESIDENT EXPLAINS BILL Duty Increased on Luxuries and De creased on Necessities, Accord ing to a Statement Made by Chief Executive. Winona, Minn. —In the most import ant utterance he lias made since his occupancy of the White House, President \V. H. Taft here, in a stato which is the hot bed of the "insur gent" movement within the Republi can party, defended the Payne tariff bill as the best tariff measure ever passed by a Republican congress and hence the best tariff bill the people have ever known. The president boldly asserted that the insurgents who voted against the bill had abandoned the Re publican party. "Was it the duty of the member of congress who believed that the bill did not accomplish everything that it ought to accomplish, to vote against it?" asked the president. "I am here Ito justify those who answer this ques tion in the negative. I am not here »o defend those who voted for the tPayne bill, but to support them." 1 Mr. Taft waited until September 17 when, with a mass of facts and figures before him, with a new state ment just prepared by Chairman Payne of the house committee 011 ways aud means and with his own personal knowledge of all the intimate little de tails of the tariff light in Washington still fresh in his mind, he sat down in a stateroom in his private car, the Mayflower, and dictated to two ste nographers the speech he delivered at night and which represents a state ment on the accomplishments and de merits of the Payne bill, from an ad ministration point of view, more thor ough in its simple appeal for an un derstanding by the people, than any j document which lias heretofore been issued from any source. The statement contained only enough figures to make clear a point which the president has dwelt upon for some time in his confidential talks, that tho measure of the new bill should be taken by the amount of re ductions made on articles of general consumption compared to the in creases on articles little used. The president., by means of a table pre pel rod »t hie roquoot hy Mr I'uyiic, showed that the tariff had been in creased on articles whose consumption in this country amounts yearly to $851,000,000, and that of this amount $.'179,000,000 is represented by such luxuries as silks, wines, liquors, per fumes and pomades, leaving a balance of $272,000,000 representing increases on articles n<k luxuries. Against this, the president set, with great emphasis in his delivery, the fact that the tariff lihs been reduced on articles, mostly necessities, whose consumption in this country amounts annually to $5,000,- 000,000. STEAMER'S BOILERS EXPLODE Boat Which Foundered Off the Coast of the Isle of Pines Cost the Lives of 29 Persons. Mobile, Ala. A graphic story of a marine disaster which cost the lives of 29 persons when the steamer Nico las Castania, en route from Havana to Cienfuegos foundered off the coast of the Isle of Pines on the night of Au gust 23 last, has just reached Mobile. The crew numbered 27 officers and sailors, and there were two passen gers. Eighteen human bodies have been recovered. The missing 11 are believed to have become the victims of sharks. All the bodies recovered were in a terribly decomposed state, and identification was impossible. A government commission, after an ex amination reported that the immedi ate cause of the wreck was the sim ultaneous explosion of the steamer's battery of boilers.
