The company expects to return 5 per cent interest on its capital and to de vote its surplus earnings to the construc tion and maintenance of churches, schools, parks, theaters, libraries, hospitals and baths. Lady Henry Somerset, president of the world's W. €. T.

It is impossible now for art or beauty to change the hereditary ten dencies acquired by the Anglo-Saxon race. Alcohol has too long possessed the raoe's brain for it to kill those tendencies In any other way than by the total abstinence of ■everal generations.

ANARCHY WILL PREVAIL .'IBAXS WILL REVEL IX LOOT Representative Warner Predict* an American Intervention After Mnety Days. New York, March 27.—Representative Vespasian Warner of Illinois, who has Just returned from an extended tour through Cuba, believes the constitutional convention will accept the Platt amend ment, cays a Washington special to the World. Mr. Warner said: We must, of course, turn the island over to the Cubans, but It is a crime against human ity to withdraw at this time. When our troops leave the island you will witness a reign of lawlessness which will startle the world and compel us in the name of justice to take matters into our own hands. The Cubans will sign anything or do anything to get us away from their property, and when they have the reins in their own hand* you can expect the worst. From whet I can learn tbey will assess everybody with any money, and have a divis ion of the spoils. They will drive all Span iards and American sympathizers from the island, and for <a brief period will revel in loot. Law and order will become a mockery and a state of anarchy will reign. It is foolishness to talk of the Cubans governing themselves at this time or for years. The island must become ours eventu ally, and It seems a shame to undo all of th« progress made In two years. We will have to intervene within ninety days and set up a protectorate again to begin the work of re construction anew. "$5 OR YOUR SON" Boya of Lead, S. D., Make a Demand on a Business Man.

S. D. EDUCATIONAL BILL SEX. WILLIAMSON DISCUSSES IT ——————— Discrimination Found by a Pierre Correspondent Will Not Hold, He Say*. Special to The Journal. Sioux Falls, S. D., March 27.—While in the city yesterday J. H. Williamson, of Madison, state senator from Lake county, was aeked in regard to the statement re cently sent out from Pierre to the effect that the new educational bill, through an error of the engrossing force, or other wise, provides that graduates of sectar ian colleges of the state shall be allowed state teachers' certificates, -while those of the state institutions receive only first grade certificates. Senator Williamson was instrumental in shaping the bill, and an attempt has been made to hold him re sponsible for the error in the bill. He said: I think there ie nothing in the charge. I made the amendment to place both state and private colleges on an equality, and pre sume that that amendment appears in the law as written. However, I can't be sure of that until I see the new session laws. But even if the Pierre correspondent is right and through a clerical error an appar ent advantage is given by the new bill to the private institutions, such a discrimination is not the law and it will not hold. The repeal ing clause of tba act a» passed read* aa fol lows: , "All actß and parts of acts relating to edu cation passed prior to Jan. 1, 1901 (except chapter 57, laws of 1897, relating to the board of regents of education, and special acts relat ing to schools in cities, towns and villages, and also to Independent districts created by special acts) are hereby repealed." Thus the entire chapter 58 of the laws of 1897 is untouched by the new law and remains in full force and effect. Now, the concluding sentence in wcUon 14 of the chapter reads as follows: "A certificate of graduation from a full course in any one of the normal schools or from the state university, provided the gradu ate of the university baa taken a course in pedagogy as given in that institution, shall be a license valid for five years to teach in any of the public schools of this state " " '* thus evident that under the lawe of i 897 the graduates from the state colleges are entitled to a five-year state certificate, while the new bill gives only a three-year certificate to graduates of the private colleges Those who have been so deepiy worried over the alleged error in the present law are doubtless unaware that the law pasaed in 1897 has not been repealed RAZED BY HIGH WINDS Special to The Journal.
