IS GIVEN AN OVATION
VICE PMO.MTENT BRERTLY AD
DZZ85=S CONVENTION TODAY.
President Schleicher's Annual Report
iead--Addresses on Panama Canal
and Other Themes.
Vice President Fairbanks in an
address, which was applauded to the
echo, welcomed to the capital to
day the delegates to the conven
tion of the National Republican Edi
torial Association. His presence at
the convention was attended by sig
nificant incidents which made it evi
dent that a large majority of the edi
tors present will favor his nomina
tion for President in i908.
The frequent mention of President
Roosevelt's name was the signal for
outbursts of applause.
The diplomatic pen-wielders of-4he repub
lican party, the opinion molders and
"thoughtometers," as they have been term
ed, comprising the National Republican
Editorial Association, assembled in annual
convention at 10:30 o'clock this forenoon
at the New Willard Hotel. In the repre
sentative gathering were editors of dailies
and weeklies from Maine to the Golden
Gate of California; from the icy boundaries
of Canada on the north to the Florida reefs
on the south. Men who have helped to
stem the tide of political defeat or to
flush the exultant and triumphant flood .of
victory. Men who create political ideals
and policies, and smash political idols and
threadbare flotions, all were represented
in the distinguished gathering of editors
in the picturesque hall on the tenth floor
of the New Willard today.
Mr. A. 0. Bunnell, editor of the Adver
tiser of Dansville, N. Y., secretary and
treasurer of the association, called the
meeting to order and announced that
President John A. Sleicher of New York
had been detained by important business
and would be unable to preside over the
forenoon session. He called Vice President
William S. Cappeller of Mansfield, Ohio,
to the chair.
The announcement was made that Vice
President Charles W. Fairbanks, who was
to have delivered the address of welcome,
and Senator Chauncey M. Depew of New
York, who was also to have delivered an
address, had both been unavoidably de
tained, and could not therefore attend the
opening session of the association.
Annual Address Read.
Secretary Bunnell then read the annual
address of Precident Slicher.
"We assemble two centuries after the
first American newspaper appeared. It may
be a pleasure to recall that the editor of
that paper, the Boston News-Letter, was
the postmaster of his town. Today any one
of our leading great dailies has a larger
circulation than all combined of the 205
daily and weekly newspapers of a century
ago. Now, with 2,400 dailies and 16,0(0)
weeklies, we have the freest, best-governed.
best educated, best natured and most pro
gressive and prosperous people in the
world. It is in part because we have so
many newspapers and because so many of
the people read them that we are so con
tented and prosperous. Lord Balfour may
continue to boast that he never reads a
daily paper, and he may continue also to
lament the decadence of England. If any
thing helps a people to reflect it is to read,
and we all would be better off if we read
and reflected more and talked less. We are
so fond of admonishing others, we of the
editorial profession, that we do not take
kindly to admonition ourselves. But a
friendly word of admonition is always in
season.
"We have passed through a strenuous
presidential struggle. We have won an un
precedented victory and have permitted the
democratic party once more to retire to the
oblivion of that simple life which befits it
so well. The republican party still has a
record and the democratic party still has an
obituary.
"We have just inaugurated President
Roosevelt. His temperate and conservative
address befitted the solemn occasion. With
that imposing event still fresh in our
minds, let us record a stronger determina
tion than ever to consecrate our best en
deavor in an effort to sustain the cherished
institutions of the republic, and to preserve
them, not only from dangers without but
from the still greater dangers that threaten
from within. Above all, let us not be mis
led. in this era of the disturber and the
demagogue, by the noisy shouts and tu
mult of the thoughtless crowd. History
has told us more than once of a populace
moved by hysteria. After the hysterics
always has come insanity and, finally, the
torch.."
Growth of 'be Orgamntion.
Secretary Blinneli made a short verbal
report. He said the National Republican
Editorial Association was organized in 1900
at Philadelphia, when the national repub
lican convention nominated Theodore
Roosevelt as Vice President. Since that
time President Roosevelt has grown in
strength, as has this association. Mr.
Bunnel spoke of the unprecedented ma
jority President Roosevelt received at the
last election, and said the editorial as
sociation had contributed to that great
result.

AN EASY WAY
TO KEEP WELL.
It is easy to keep well if we would only observe
eacb day a few simple rules of health.
The alimtportant thing is to keep the stomach
right, and to do this it is not necessary to diet or
to follow a set rule or bill of fare. Such pamper
ing simply makes a capricious appetite and a feel
ing that certain favorite articles of food must be
avoided.
Prof. wiechold gives pretty good advice on this
subject. He says: "I am 68 years old and have
never had a serious illness, and at the same time
my life has been largely an indoor one, but I
early discovered that the way to keep healthy
was to keep a healthy stomaeh, not by eating
bran crackers or dieting of any sort; on the con
trary, I always eat what my appetite craves, but
daily for the past eight years I have made it a
practice to take one or two of Stuarts Dyspepsia
Tablets after each meal, and I attribhte my robust
health for a man of my age to the regular daily
use of Stuart's Tablets.
"My physician first advised me to usa them be
eause, he said, they were perfectly harmless and
were not a secret patent medicine, but contained
only the natural digestives, peptones and diatase,
and after using them a few weeks I have sever
ceased to thak him for his advice.
"I1 beneatly believe the habit of taking Stuart's
Dyspepaia Tablets after meals is the veal health
habit, beesuse their use brings health to the sick
and afling and preserves health to the well and
strong."

all the ideal sentiment of the country car

The Republiean West
Vice President William S. Cappeller ol
New Mansfield, Ohio, was received with
applause when he. began his address or
"What Makes the West Republican?" Edi
tor Cappeller said, in part:
"'What makes the west republican? i
easily answered. It is not because all of the
old abolitionists and republicans left Massa
chusetts that they might elect a democratic
governor whose factory-made soles, by
newspaper advertising, have been marching
on from one end of the country to the other
for years. The more direct reason is that
the republican party had candidates at the
head of its ticket who, by intelligent hon
esty, won the admieatgn of the people.
"President Roosevelt early demonstrated
his wisdom in the selection of the chairman
of the national committee In naming a man
who had been a student of men and affairs,
and who, as chair;ian if the national com
mittee, recognized that our boasted civiliza
tion and education coud be properly put to
the test by a campaign, of journalism. Time
was, before the nalti icity of newspapers,
that the Columbian orator, the modern spell
binder, was the only means of communica
tion between national and state legislative
bodies and the people. Posters and hand
bills announced meetings in city and coun
try, and when the eventful night came the
sounds of fife and drum and the torchlight
procession heralded that there were doings
at the cross roads or at the township school
house. That slow, expensive and uncertain
means of reaching the people, like the secur
ing of a list of names and mailing docu
ments, is passed and has been succeeded
largely by the A1spaDers of the country.
"Another thing that helps to make the
west republican is that there has been a
never-ceasing tide of immigration from the
east of live, progressive young men of force,
ability and enterprise, who from experience
and observation have learned that the prin
ciples of the republican party have been
largely instrumental in making ours the
grandest republic on earth.
"And again, the west, so largely devoted
to agriculture, knows full well that the pol
icy of the republican party on economic
questions has been and is such as to confer
a direct benefit upon the farmer, for while
the protective principle has made possible
the great industrial and manufacturing de
velopment of the east and middle west, It
has also provided the great agricultural in
terests with that best of all markets-the
home market.
"Another reason as to 'what makes tho
west republican' was manifest in the vigor
ous sledge-hammer response of the Presi
dent to the charges of dishonorablb or Im
proper campaign methods. Like his letter
of acceptance, by the aid of the newspapers
it, too, went into the bands of all intelligent
voters of the country. The minds of the
people were responsive, so that by the time
'the frost was on the p~umpkin and the fod
der in the shock' the-tilow of a Hercules fell
full in the face of his maligners and sent to
the political junk pile the sage of Wolfert's
Roost and his stalking horse."
Ovation for Mr. Fairbans.
When the tall form of Vice President
Fairbanks appeared, framed in the main
doorway of the hall, he was given a rousing
ovation. The delegates and their ladles
arose and applauded with might and main.
The ovation continued while a committee
of editors escorted Mr. Fairbanks to the
platform. Then it was renewed with vigor.
"Fairbanks! 1908!" sang out one of the
delegates.
Another editor declared that the Vice
President was $he logical candidate of the
party to succeed President Roosevelt. Then
the truth dawned that the Fairbanks boomi
for 1908 had been launched, and the launch
ers were republican editors, representing
every section of the country.
Vice President Cappeller of the associa
tion is an Ohio man, and in presenting
Vice President Fairbanks he referred to
him as "formerly from Ohio."
"Yes," sang out one of the delegates,
"but he is from Indiana now."
"I have not come here to nmake a formal
or extended speech," said Mr. Fairbanks,
"but rather to meet and greet you and bid
you welcome. The influence of republicanr
editors is felt everywhere, and republicar
editors are welcomed everywhere. They are
nowhere more welcome than at the nation's
capital, of which we are all so proud, We
cannot overestimate the influence of the
republican press. .If we have a wise and
successful adminf9traUon, we are largely
indebted to the r publican press for that
fact.
Power 'o Q Press.
"We had the powerful support of the
press In the recen l~eat political campaign,
and the political '~~Wer of the republican
press was manifested, the overwhelming,
unprecedented 're &b14 n majority' given
And when we iiugifrated our splendid
President, 'Theodo1m Roosevelt, it was the
consummation- oftpe 'pwise and ceaseless
work of the repu lapress. In the con
sideration of the q~tO5of today and the
settlement of tho f loinorrow the repub
lican editors of thetUnited States will play
a most Important port.y
"I hope," said Ve resident Fairbankrs,
In conclusion, "yq y here will be a
pleasant one and ftirjourneys home safe
ones.
As the vociferous aplauise was dying out
the editors formed injiine and each received
a hearty handaak,from the man who
holds next to the hh'est office in the land.
"I am due at the Senate," said the Vice
President, "but the Senate must wait until
I have shaken the honest hands of the re
publicans of the land."

editors, as they passed by and rebelved a

conditions brought about by the rejection
of the treaty on the part of Colombia.
The President was wise enough to know
that we not only needed the right-of-way in
the canal, but needed contiguous territory;
therefore, he secured an American strip ten
miles wide from ocean to ocean, the dis
tance being forty-six miles and a half. This
was the triumph of the Panama canal
treaty. On the canal zone; as it is called,
Uncle Sam is the only power; he has his
own policemen, schools, post offices and
his own laws. No alien or native has any
rights on the canal zone. Uncle Sam could
place an army the full length of it and for
tify it. Revolutions may come and revolu
tions may go, but there will be one piece of
lan.d between Central and South America
on which there will be peace. The little
republic of Panama is a sort of stepsister
or handmaiden to the canal zone. Uncle
Sam got a good bargain. He got manufac
tured iron enough to fill half the public
buildings in Washington, if they were de
voted to that purpose; he got a canal,
partly dug, spaded to some depth along the
entire line, deep enough at each end to
make the only harbors that there are or
ever have been in those waters.
He got twenty-five hundred pretty cot
tages scattered along the canal, practically
ready for American occupancy. He 'got
the Culebra cut one-third dug. He got
surveys, plans and blue prints from entire
canal, to which the French devoted three
years before they stuck a spade Into the
earth. He got office buildings and larger
residences for the general managers, and
he got the great Ancon Hospital. He got
the Panama railroad and all its belongings.
Other Things Accomplished.
So far as the great canal is concerned,
he got everything ready for bis use and
much more that he never can use. And,
above all, he got the French career of the
horrible example to his own men. And he
got all of this for forty million dollars.
with ten millions thrown in as the conso
lation prize to the new republic of Panama.
The canal, Panama railroad and the Cha
gres river practically parallel each other
from Colon on the Atlantic side to a point
eighteen miles from Panama city, where
the river comes down from what we call
the north. From that point on to Panama
the railroad and the canal keep company,
but the river is no longer one of the trio.
If the -Chagres river ran from ocean to
ocean it would form no part of the canal
problem; but it butts in at nearly the cen
ter of the isthmus, and in the rainy season
it is a torrent prepared to destroy a canal
or anything else. Therefore, one of the
problems is the disposition of the Chagres
river and its waters. The only other prob
1em is the diggidig down of Culebra hill.
The canal through that hill is now 1,300
ifeet wide at the -top, and all the men em
ployed by Engineer Wallace in the actual
digging of the canal are in that cut-2,800
in number. They are taking out the lava
rock by new American steam shovels at a
less cost per cubic yard than the French
ever did work. The cut must be deepened
yet an average of 800 feet, and the length
of the' cut is eight miles. It is fortunate
that Culebra is made of rock, otherwise
its problem would be greater, for after the
canal should be built its sides would be
constantly drifting into the canal. The
soil of the isthmus is alluvial and easily
moved, as is illustrated by the way the
canal has filled up since the French left
It.
A World Problem.
The visitor goes to Panama looking on
the canal as a world problem, having some
relation to civilization; after he remains
awhile the canal becomes a local problem
and he thinks only of mosquitoes, yellow
fever, lazy working, a shiftless people and
the hundreds of difficulties which confront
the American engineers and superinten
dents. Engineer Wallace is as devoted to
his work as if he were a missionary in the
foreign field. He neither looks to the right
nor the left, but only wants to dig the
canal. He should be unhampered. His
hands should be untied. The commission
should be reduced to two men and those
two men should not be civil engineers, but
business men -who could make the pur-.
chases in requisitions, who could pay the
bills and keep the financial matters
straight, handling all moneys.
The poorest member of a city or a village
school board is a retired teacher. There
fore, every engineer should go off the canal
board. All Wallace' needs is men to band
him the~ tools. He will do the work. Fur
thermore, if Uncle Sam is not prepared to
dig the canal deep enough and wide enough
to permit the world's commerce to go
through without the ships being raised from
the sea level he ought to stop right now
and not spend another dollar.
Behind thxA Times.
A lock canal, raising vessels many feet
above the sea level, would be entirely be
hind the present time and the present de
mands, There could be no exctise for build
ing the canal in that cheap way except the
lack of money, and I fancy we shall not
lack the money. This is an age when things
must be done right or not at all. The world
has waited a long time, and the world can
wait until the canal is built in the right
way. There will be troubles connected with
the canal, but that cannot be overcome.
It is a project to arouse ohe's enthusiasm.
The Culebra lill is really the great con
tinental divide whittled A4own to a strip

RENDEZVOUS POE OFFICERS
Spanish War Volunteers to Purchase
Home in Washington.
In pursuance of a call issued three weeks
ago, twenty-two delegates representing the
men of the Spanish war volunteer service,
met here Monday and yesterday to formu
late plans for the establishment of a na
tional rendezvous in Washington for Span
ish war volunteer officers and members of
military societies throughout the country.
The meeting consummated the plans re
solved upon by the United Spanish war vol
unters at their annual convention at St.
Louis in September last.
In addition to the money subscribed at
St. Louis, $11,400 further subscriptions and
pledges have been received, aggregating
$4,00. Effort is being made to purchase
the Justice Gray property, corner 16th and
I streets, for which the committee is pre
pared to pay $0,000 cash. It is reported.
however, that this property was sold yes
terday by Thomas J. Fisher & Co. to a
wealthy widow, who will use it as a resi
dence.
If the committee fails to secure this prop
erty It will immediately lease, with privi
lege of purchase, such available and suit
able property as can be had.
The non-resident membership of the so
ciety aggregates 1,100, which together with
the various other Spanish- war associations
and military and patriotic organizations
who will join as bodies, will make a non
resident membership of nearly 10,000.
The committee on purchase of property,
which paid the Army and Navy Club 61,000
for an option on the purchase of the club
property, decided to abandon this proposed
purchase, It being considered that the
property was not suitable for the purpose.
CROWDS WELL H A DLED.

Messages of congratulations are still be
Ing received by Major Sylvester because of
the manner in which the police performed
their work during the Inaugural period.
Mr. Ediwin B. Hese, private secretary to
thie superintendent, also comes in for a
share of the praise. Among those who sent
congratulatory communications were i4eut.
Gen. Adna R. Chaffee, who was grand mar
shal last Saturday; several members of
Congress and business men.
Mr. Charles A. Baker wrote: "Permit me
to congratulate you upon the excellent
work of your department during the in
augural period. Better results it would
seem impossible to obtain, and I am sure
that our visitors have gone home impressed
w:ith the fact that your force is composed
of men who are both effcient offcers and
courteous gentlemen.
In the letter from General Chaffee the
writer says: "It affords me very great
pleasure to commend in the highest degree
the excellent police arrangements devised
by the department in connection with the
inaugural parade and to add my congratu
lations to the others you must have re
eived for the splendidly effcient manner in
which these arrangements were carried out
by yourself, your subordinate offcers and
the policemen who assisted them."
