Stirs His Audience. W. 13. Humphrey ol! Seattle, in an address upon ""Win- America Is Losing its Pacific and Oriental Trade," en thused tho audieuco to frequent ap plause. Ho explained what Congress was doing regarding a subsidy and what it is to do. Ho devoted niost of his timo io tho condition upon tho Paci6c ocean. He said thoro wcro now only eight American merchantmen upon tho Pacific ocean, whereas about a yoar ago there woro about fifteen, and in tho near future all will pass from tho Pa cific unless something ia dono by the govornnicnt. 4 'Wo havo wasted our opportunities.' ' he said, '"'and havo wasted our time in talking about trade following tho flag. Japan has taught us a valuablo les son. Prom practically every standpoint Jupan's great victory over llussia in the lato war was due to ship subsidy. Japan is gaining tho mastory of tho Pa cific. I do not belicvo thorc will bo war with Japan and I will do all in my power to prevout it, but if it should conio I want my country to be pro pared. 4iWo aro willing to subsidize our riv ers and harbors and our railways, but not our merchant marine upon tho high seas. 1 do not boliovc tho people of this country arc content to spend $100, 000,000 a year in tho building of a great navy without providing for an auxiliary fleet. "What will it avail us to have scoros of! war vossols if wo cannot man them"? Wc must havo this auxiliary fleet of merchantmen to not only draw our sailors from in timo of need, but lo attend our "big fighting vessels. We cannot borrow vessels from other nations in timo of war. Tho best measure of poace is always to be ready for war. "It is my bono that when tho great Panama canal is completed tho first vessel to pass through will bo a national ship, built in our own shipyards and bearing tho namo of M. A. llanna, and I would like to see Theodora Roosevelt standing on tho deck under tho Stars and Stripes when tho boat makes thu trip through the canal which will unite our two oceans.'' At tho closo of tho address of Con gressman Humphrey an impromptu dis cussion was precipitated oy Welding King aud W. 15. Cragin, Iho dolegates from tho New York Produce Bxchango, who advocated repeal of the law pro hibiting purchase of foreign vessels. Senator Gallinger said free ships would not help our ship yards, except possibly I in a few repairs. Lewis Nixon took a hand iu the discussion and appealed for more patriotic motives. The conference proper was closed by the address of J. T. iOeOlcarv, assistant Postmaster-Geuoral. who spoko in favor l of subsidized niail-carryi ug steamers upon tho high seas. A't tho banquet Sonator Forakcr's ad dress was a strong alignment in favor of building up an American merchant marine. As boariug upon his subject, ho took occasion to discuss tho present financial condition, which ho declared was inevitable because of many influ ences, among which was the passage of tho rate "bill by the last Congress, mak ing tho revenues of 200,000 miles of railroad dependent upon a "rate-making commission of seven men sitting in i Washington. ' ' Ho continued : How to Eestoro Confidence. "To restore confidence and recover; the ground wo havo been losing, we must understand aud romVly the causes ,of our trouble. It is not duo to a scar cit' of currency, for we havo moro money and better money today than ever "before. It is not duo to over speculation or inflated prices; it is not duo to a conspiracy of rich mon to bank rupt themselves and the whole country foT political purposes. Man" things havo contributed, but it was inevitable that sooner or later wo should have aomo such experience as wo aro now having when wo provided by law that tho roveuues of over 200,000 miles of railroads, representing moro than $11, 000,000,000 of securities, m should lie turned ovor to a rate-making commis sion of seven men silting in Washing ton. Tho work assigned to them was an impossibility." Senator Forakcr paid a strong com pliment to tho late Senator Hauua and in closing said: "I continue lo believe that tho surest and best way to rcstoro our merchant marino is by a return to discriminating duties, and I continue to believe that as soon as we shall have dono this our flag soon will be flying over all the oceans. " ' II. B, Goulder was electd president of the association. Senator Gallinger of New ITampshiro also spoke. Ho said, in part: "Wo must havo moro ships. These will not only be profitable iu a com mercial sense, but will be messengers of peace and amity wherever they go. "As a nation we have blundered in our legislation regarding shipping until now wc are the laughing stock of the 'maritime countries of the world."

The longest year on record was tho year -13 B,- C. This year had -Mo days, because Julius Caesar ordained that it should throughout tho Roman sphere of influence. To clear awny all the con fusion which had previously existed in reconciling the lunar with the solar year, Julius Caosar, with the help of So Gugenes. an Alexandrian astronomer, undertook a thorough reform of tho calendar, Ilo effected it bv making the year uow called '115 B. C, 'lho year of confusion,'' consist of 445 days, and the succeeding year of 3G5 days, with the exception of every fourth year, which was to contain 3t6 days. Thus was established tho Julian calendar aa we know it toda t'i ' W "Hr -'WtlMji Ukl -Jrr It t-TtiIII II 1 1 Passing of the Long-Horn. "There's something we'll never sec jH after' a. fow years," a cattleman re- marked as he pointed toward a. pair of JLu long horns mounted and highly pol ished. "I can remember whcu the vast majority of the cattle .marketed iu IH Kansas City woro thoso things, but the long-horns arc becoming scarce." LLw From a news report of tho Kansas City livestock show. 2N'ot without historic interest is the passing of tho Texas long-horn. It is IH a real opoch-making incident. Tho long-horn belonged to another day the LLm day of the frontier aud the pioneer. When tho railroads invaded tho rauge and built shipping tracks from tho maiu lines to the loading pens at the rauch the long-horn was 'obliterated. Before the railroads were pushed into tho great Southwest the long-horn was au abEo- LM lute necessity. When it was compul- sory to drive tho cattle for tho' market LLW soveral hundred miles to reach tho noar- LLM est shipping point, the long-horn was tLU equal to tho test. Beside him the fat, IH sleep short-horn would havo died by tho wayside the first few hours of the LLm iournoy, but tho "Texas ranger" the IH loug-horu was famous both for speed LLM and endurance. His modern rival was vLLw au impossibility under frontier condi- LL The problem of wator supply was an- other factor in the culture of tho long- LLm horn. Ijq the early settlement of the Southwest the stockmen wore forced to vLU depend upon the streams that afforded vLLm a pcVpctual supply of water, and there LLm werc'few of them. That was before tho LLm day of the windmill and the artificial tLU lake. Only the long-horn could find VLLM pasture in the hills "many miles from those streams and make a daily pil- grimao w- Lho water without dctrimoni; mmmm to his physical condition. This ho would do at a paco which taxed tho en- tLU during qualities of tho hardy mustangs of the 'eowpunehcrs. ( The ability of tho long-horn to with ; stand the blizzards was wonderful, adapting him peculiarly to the pioneer period. Tho early settlers were uoft jiLw prepared to provide shelter .for their LL stock. Tho long-horn would seek hia JLLm own shelter in the hills, whilo the pe- LLm uuliar characteristics of the short-horn, LLm that has supplanted him. is to surren- LLm dor to the storm aud dio without au LLm attempt at self-protection. LLm But with all his commendable traits, LLm the loug-horu has no placo in tho twentieth century scheme. Tho pros- cot civilization demands meat rathor than speed in tho marketable produc- vLU tion from tho range, and the long-horn was not a moat producer. He was healthy, vigorous aud picturesque but never fat. His appctito was prodigious, aud his digestion perfect, but he defied every law of nature in his porsistcnt refusal to "take on meat." Ho might 'LLw have been, to paraphrase a sentimeut from a certain Western Governor "tho rich, "juicy meat in the national sand- H wichJ' but tho long-horn simply would bo nothing but horns and bone and muscle. Hence hia exit from tho puo toral stage. President Eebukcd. IH In a lecture on the liberties of l.he LLW people, before the Lowell institute, Prof. Frederic J. Stimson of Harvard jLLU caused somulhiug of a stir among hi3 audience when, in referring to tho con- stitutiunal provision guaranteeing that no person shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witucss against himself, he said: "You may remember tho very severo criticism imposed by the President upou one judge for his decision sustaining the people's liberties. Tho judge's dc- cision, given in tho Chicago beef trust prosecutions, was referred to with an- gry disapproval by the President in nn oilici.il document, his remarks being al- IH most identical with a remark mado by James I. of the great Coko when ho jl also refused to carry out tho wish of Jl tho executive. jH "Aud I may tell you that it is crodi- IB bly rumored in tho high places, of my profession that a .certain other judgo a higher judge was approached by tho UM President or his ugent and asked whether he would affirm this decision if it were appealed and came before his court; aud wo lawyers aro told that LM that judge who has recently been in Boston made tho same answer that tho great Coke made to King James:. 'Sir, when that case, comes before me for LM judgment. 1 will consider it ns.bccoin- cth a iust judge.' " Boston Herald. Four Generations at Reunion.
