ago, but recovered' sufficiently to go
to England in 1001. lie spent last
winter at Torquay, and moved to
Brixham in May. Mr. Godkin was
twico married. Ills first wife was Miss
Footo of Now Haven, Conn. Ills sec
ond wifo, who was Miss Katherine
Sands of Now York, survives him.
Mr. Godkin was 71 years old. His
son, Lawronce, is a well known mem
ber of tho Now York bar.
Mr. Godkin was an "apostle of
higher journalism." He was always
in his element when editorially lash
ing such men as Richard Croker or
Thomas C. Piatt or TaramUny Hall.
Ho was called soverely to account once
by a grand jury for some things he
had written. Ho did nothing in tho
matter except to prove that ono of ths
grand jurymen had beon continuously
connected with a disreputable house in
New York. That endod tho grand jury
trouble Later bo wad arrested on
tho charges of criminal libel. There
wab a warrant, and the officer serving
it selected Sunday morning as tho best
time to drag tho editor to an account.
This experiment only called for an
added assortment of editorial broad
sldos directed against New York poll
ticans. Mr. Godkin had been a newspaper
writer almost from tho time of his
graduation at Queens' college, Bel
fast, in 1851. At the conclusion of the
Crlmoan war, througiyjut which he
was a war correspondent lor tuo ijon

of law in tho olllce of David Dudley
field, and in 1859 was admitted to the
bar, " .In 1805, after a brief period as
an editorial writer on tho Now York
Times, ho established Tho Nation, a
weekly publication, which he edited
until It gained control and was united
with tho. Evening Post. Mr. Godkin
becamo connected with tho Evening
Post In 1881. Tho force and influence
of tho paper are credited to his vlgpr-,
ous administration of its polloy. Ho
was born at Moyno in Couqty Wick
low, Iroland, the son of the Rev,,
James Godkin.

were unlike thunder, having no re
verberating roll and were accompa
nied by decided tremors, while tho
sky in the Bouthwcst was suffused with
a' glow.
Tho roports-came at Intervals of
perhaps threo) minutes, and persons
who remember tho earthquako at

similar to the subterranean noises ac
companying that occurrence. Tho
sound traveled from tho south to

The night was porfectly clear. A
number of citizens gathored on

tho American flag tho emblem of sac

ings and the horrors of water torture.
You havo converted into sullen enemies
a peoplo who threo yonrs ago wore
ready to kiss tho hem of tho garment
of tho American. For tho Philippines
you hno repealed tho Declaration of
Independence und for Cuba, you gave
it now lustre. For the Philippines,
you converted tho Monroo doctrine
Into a doctrlno of solflshness ana in
Culm you vindicated it."
"All you havo achieved In tho
archipelago Is to get a few thousand
children Into the schools and to get
this you havo slain many tiroos that

LIQUID FUEL TESTS.

rat '1 lirmiKliout Country.
The coining tests with liquid fuel un
der tho navy department are exciting
the greatest interest throughout the
country. The latest inquiry on the
subject received by Hear Admiral Mel
ville is from the California Petroleum
Miners' association. This association
is made up of wealthy men, who have
bonded themselves together ior tbo
promotion of the petroleunTndustry
of California, supported by. voluntary
contributions, and is, ao tocakJhit
flclently dismtorent.ed'jn thc'iccn.'in
intc.rest it takes in the matter, to of
great value in the development of
liquid fuel plans.
The process suggested by the Call
fornla association is the use of com
pressed air in spraying oil instead
of cmplojlng steam for that purpose.
The advantage, of course, 1b on the
side of economy, especially ns the use
of steam is at the expense of fresh -water.
(
The people who nre Interested In the
Texas oil fields also arc taking n lively
interest in the bureau tests. It means
a great denl to them In affording n mar
ket for the product of their property.
The plants which might use liquid
fuel arc just now too busy to under
take any change In their system.
Although coal is more expensive
than oil, no plant which is overstocked
with orders wilt shut down to make
the change. Arrangements aro being
made in Washington to carry on the
tests. It is necessary, 'inder the mu
nicipal regulations, tf construct a
moat around the bol'ir to be nscd for
this purpose and to '.ike other precau
tionary measures,
DEVISES CEMENT FURNACE.
Sciential ni Ann Arbor UnlvrraHy
rromiaPK to Hr nlndunlse
Great Industry.
Prof. Edward D. Campbell, the blind
professor of anal tical chemistry in
the university nt Ann Arbor, hn de
vised a furnace for the manufacture
of Tortland cement which will rev
olutionise the present methods. At
the completion of his tests the product
will he turned out on just ns scientific
a basis ns is steel at the present time.
"It is the first furnace to be built
in which yon can make cement under
actually known conditions of time and
temperature and the condition of tho
flame passing through it," said Prof.
Cnmpbell. "I can hold the tempera
ture at any point so that the furnace
will not vary five degrees.
"I take a mixture of clay and mnrl
and gradually raise the temperature
and make a series of tests. Then I
take a different mixture und find the
influence of each individual constitu
ent upon cement. The complications
or possibilities of the different condi
tions of mixture, time and tempera
ture makes the series long, but when
I finish the work there will be some
tables that ought to be of great com-
merlcal benefit to the manufacturers.'
There is nt present a certain nir of
mystery about the manufacture of
cement, and Trof. Campbell' inesti
gntiou will remote this. Cement mak
ers now are men who hate learned by
experience and work by "the rule of
thumb," and ns n consequence there is
general but not systematic informa
tion at hand.
THE STRONGEST COLLEGE.

lloil ol Stinlfiita.
College men throughout the United
States havo begun to take strength
tets for the purpose oT etching the
institution which numbers in its ranks
the SO strongest men among American
colleges. Tills competition is unique
in intercollegiate rivalry, ns the ath
letes do not meet in an actual contest
of strength. Each unit ersity scuds
to a committee the statistical records
of Its 50 strongest men and to the col
lege whose athletes make the highest
total is awarded the intercollegiate
championship.
The tests by which the strength of
the men is measured were devised by
Dr. Dudley A. Sargent, of Harvard.
There are seven tests, which respec
tively record the strength of the back,
the legs, the right grip, the left grip,
ability to "dip," to "push up" and to
pull up, and finally the strength of
lungs.
At present Columbia holds tho cham
pionship and expects to increase the
total of 5,0(10 points made by her 50
men last year.
