President's submission of a special ttiessan* to Congress on the subject of coast defenses brings oni'e more to a point the w!.< 'e question of our preparedness as a na t! n for warfare Fortifications are es st-i.:hilly Investments In future protection. 'I h- army nnd the navy may have a use In t!n > > of comparative peace, the army in quelling domestic riots and. In the outly ing | . ndencle*. In preserving order on a laix- scale, while the navy is at all times serving the nation<U Interests by carrying flag Into distant waters and upholding t ? pre.stlg,- of this government and thus safeguarding the lives and property of Amen an citizens. But coast defenses can l.avt only one use. one meaning They are ?instructed, at heavy expense, to insure a (!? grie of protection against u foreign foe in case of a war with a maritime nation. i h>> I nited States, exposed as It Is on l>o n the east and west and also on the south to incursions by a possible assailant. mtiM . it her protect its coasts effectively or r ' ?'* It must adopt one or the other of the two broad policies of national ad ministration. It must make its forts the l? st possible or It must dismantle them ami trust to ontlnued peace to save it from iiLvasi .(1 and loss. A weak chain of forts 1- a waste (>f money, virtually an imitation to disaster. ' The I 'nited States has thus far In Its course adopted the general policy of pre paredness. although it has flagged in the course from time to time, and has been for eii it heavy cost to relearn the lesson. After the war between the states, which demonstrated the true state of affairs and j trained the nation to a high state of ef t: u. \ in til.' art of warfare, the country lapsed into a condition of indifference to tie Ways of self-defense. It had been ex halisted by the struggle of four years. It w H bMrt-flfek at the thought of blood she.) I,, consequence its coast defenses utid i;s naval armament were allowed to fall a low condition. The naval revival of twenty years ago was followed by a resumption of Interest In coast defense en terprises. Successive boards have consid ered the question and Congress lias appro priated millions to execute the plans they have prepared. The President now sub mits the documents relating tO the latest development of the subject and urges the provision of funds for the completion of th^ work. ' ls v ir ually too late for the country to turn back In its tracks In this matter. It "l,ls "nimltted to a policy of armament, us opp.!>.,.?] to the policy of disarmament. It must go forward, unless it Is willing to allow -lie expenditures of the past to go utterly to waste as useless encum brances. It we could be assured beyond t;.' i issihility of mistake or betrayal that t ? itlon would remain at profound peace ' 1 1 'lie world Indefinitely, without a b ? if honor or power or trade, it would b- !

The Cocaine Evil. In sequence of the Imperfections of st.itut.s now in force, there exists in th.s District a heavy traffic in certain arigs ?r a narcotic and stimulative nature 1 "glily deleterious to health, both moral and j>h> sichI. This evil Is well known to the authorities who, despite all their efforts .lie powerless to check It. They are forced t<> listen to appeals from wives and mothers and fathers and husbands and brothers for assistance In the abolition of a trade which is sapping the strength and wrecking the lives of loved ones, replying merely that the liw does not express the desired prohibition ar:d that they have besought Congress to i emedy Its defects. it has been said that the cocaine evil, f^r an example, has grown to great pro portions In this city, so readily do tho vic tims of this habit obtain the drug for which they crave. While many pharmacists do not sell the stuff without a prescription, others dole it over the counters without question or hesitation, knowing full well that it is being purchased by unfortunates ?who are losing ground with every dose, litis traffic, worse in some respects than the unrestricted sale of liquor. Is virtually at this time beyond regulation, and the dealers In the drug are for the present Im mune from any form of punishment. There Is now pending a bill for the sup pression of the cocaine trafl.c save RO far as the drug Is actually needed in the prac tice of medicine. Whatever differences of opinion there may be as to other features ?f the proposed legislation, there should be o* the part of reputable pharmacists n? desire to block this proposition In Its enact ment Into law. WhUe those who are Inti mately acquainted wKb the case are aware that many of the local druggists refuse to engage In this traffic and are earnestly de sirous that It be stopped, the general pub lic la prone to believe that the entire trade Is thiti engaged In it. It Is therefore due to themselves that the druggists who have put a ban upon the indlecrlminatlng sale of cocaine should work vigorously for the passage of the bill. It has been said In behalf of the drug trade that there Is little use In refusing to sell cocaine to a victim when he can step arour.d the corner or across the street and obtain the stuff without difficulty. This is no defense. It is a confession of the need of action which will prevent the miserable man or "Woman from getting the drug any where. The ease with which it Is procured. Its comparative cheapness and the ease of dosing all combined go to make the evil of tremendous proportions and grave signifi cance. Cocaine produces a peculiar stimulation for a brief period, but It leaves the victim in a sad state of nervou9 collapse. Sold sometimes under the name of "catarrh pow der," it leads the user Into the habit un awares and many a case of absolute aban donment to the drug has found Its begin ning In this manner. Thus the campaign against cocaine strikes also at certain prep arations of the drug under other names, which some pharmacists persist In selling witnout giving warning of the subtle nature of the components. The pending bill should be promptly passed by Congress and in Its final form it should positively put a stop to all the ways of dispensing cocaine without the prescription of a reputable physician either as such or as a so-called cure for some dlaea?. I The Philippine Tariff Bill. It was hardly to be supposed that so good a lighter and so capable a manager as Mr. l.odge would permit the Senate committee's adverse action on the Philippine tariff bill to close the contest. The Importance of the measure called for a continuation of the struggle, and this is assured. In his own time and way, Mr. Lodge, it is stated, will ask a vote of the Senate on a bill which, as malters now stand, is in the control of three men Instead of the ninety composing the Senate. Opposition to this measure springs from two sources. The sugar and the tobacco interests assert that they would be injured i by the reduction of the Dingley rates on those two Philippine staples. They made their argument In the House, and the House, by a large majority, overruled it. They are but repeating it in the Senate. It is no stronger, no ampler, now than then, but has proved strong enough to in fluence several votes in the committee, and, temporarily, to tie the bill up. There is then the opposition influenced by the opinion that our whole course respecting the Philippines has been a mistake, and that a serious blow to our Philippine policy would be the defeat of this bill. The idea seems to be that to increase our difficulties j in the Islands will be to shorten our slay; that by a study of our hard side the Fili pinos will grow in discontent, and, after j awhile, if we do not withdraw voluntarily, will expel us. At the outset we had a choice. We might have accepted a money consideration from Spain In the matter of the Maine?comput ed on the value of the ship, and so much j per head for the officers and men who went down with her?and that would have pre- | vented the war. There would then have arisen 1:0 Philippine problem. The mere j hint of that course, however?there were those who favored It?raised a storm in i this country, and but made war the more ' imperative. When the war was over wo had the Philippines on our hands, and every step since with regard to them has been In dorsed by the people at the polls. The vor- j diets i>f 1000 and l!nH covered American control of those islands as distinctly as they j did sound money and protection. Mr. Lodge should press his point, and put j everybody on record. Strangling by com mittee is doubtful legislative procedure. It Is now claimed tliat subway transit exposes the passenger to danger of lung trouble because of the minute metallic par ticles blowing through the tube. The old fashioned man who is content to travel from place to place In a spring wagon has a right to feel a little superior sometimes. The declaration by dressmaking authori ties that woman's attire will be less expen sive than formerly gives room for hope ! that the melancholy Easter bonnet Jest may become extinct. In discussing the boycott the Chinese officials appear to have adopted some of M. Wltte's diplomacy, which relies on telling people what they desire to hear. It would serve Poultney Bigelow right it he were sent down as a special correspond ent a few years hence to report the tri umphant opening of the canal. The time may be coming when a corpo ration, instead of being annoyed when re quested to contribute to a campaign fund, will feel llattered. The demand for the coinago of more nick els and pennies again shows the Importance of the slot machine in our social economy. -v The Sultan of Morocco's chief responsi bility Is that of standing around and ap pearing politely Interested. Africa and America. The following communication, over the signature "Peacemaker," appears In the New York Sun: "The distressing riot against the negroes In Springfield. Ohio. Impels me to copy a portion of a letter received from H. M. Tur ner, colored bishop of the African Metho dist Episcopal Church. Atlanta, Ua? in which he says: " "The noblest and most Important work for the action of the American people now is to sctiarate the white and colored races. This problem must be settled or the nation will i-oirtlnue in a state of discontent. A racial separation must come, and would be a blessing to both races and to the nation. A line of steamers between this country and Africa would bring the desired result. The negroes would leave by millions.' "It Is to be hoped that some of our philan thropists will answer this request and sup ply the need, and bring peace and Justice where now Is restless enmity." Some of the Afro-American newspapers declare that Bishop Turner possesses but small Influence with his people, and should not be taken too seriously. Friends of the negroes would b? glad to believe this. But the fact remains that he holds an office which suggests influence and respect, and the office. If not the man. counts. How comes It that he remains unshaken in his place If he has few supporters among his own people? Such deliverances as he occa sionally Indulges In on public questions would be likely to bring a weak man to book. This is not the first time that Bishop Tur ner has proposed "a line of steamers be tween this country and Africa," and pic tured the negroes of America packing their traps and "lighting out" by w><ot;sale. He never goes Into particulars, bui the gener ality glitters, and he sticks to the proposi tion. And here In this New York corre spondent he seems to have made a convert. This person calls on the philanthropists to put their good money Into the good cause, build the ships, and start the glorious exo dus which will brtng haziness to all, black and white. It Is useless to ask particulars of such people, or to supply them. Particulars de stroy the Illusion. If all the money of all the Rockefellers awl all the Caraegfes lumped together were at onc? subscribed. ships enough for such a purpose could not be bought. Or If an order for ships enough were given tomorrow, the yards of till the wdfld could not All the order In half a cen tury. Or If the largest fleet that ever floated could be summoned by magic and put into commission at once. It would be years in executing such a task, assuming a willingness on the part of the negroes to leave the choicest spot on earth for a wil derness. Loose talk abounds unfortunately on many subjects, and Btshop Turner Is not alone in his glory. Quite as wild sugges tions about relieving some of our other dif ficulties are heard, and the authors of them are men of mark among us. They, too, are shy of particulars. It seems to he the day of get-rich-quick schemes for individuals, aand get-cured quick schemes for the gov ernment. and the people are strangely at tentive to the quacks. New York's policemen are now expected to be mild and gentle toward all comers, allowing commissioners to monopolise the irascibility. The bill to prohibit betting on the races at Benning suggests the old comparison or Hamlet with the title role omitted. Count Boni might not Insist on an absolute reconciliation If he could only arrange to be put back on the pay roll. Gov. Higgins of New York says he Is not a boss. The title Is not one which is coveted these days. SHOOTING STARS. An Immunity. "Won't you he handicapped in Europe by your deficient knowledge of French?" "Not at all," answered Mr. Dustln Stax. "It will prevent me from being bothered In Paris by any Inquiries about where I got my money." Privileges. "Has wealth any special privileges In this country?" asked the tourist. "Certainly." answered the American citi zen. "Wealth entitles a man to wear a silk hat every day in the week, and also gives him a license for the use of light colored gaiters and side whiskers." Another Accusation. By trusts we've been so much annoyed We charge them now with every crime. No doubt the ice trust has destroyed The good old-fashioned winter time. A Candid Avowal. "What books have benefited you most?" asked the literary woman. "I forget the authors' names," answered Mrs. Trimm. "But they were mostly cook books." Going Along. "What is the cause of your intense an tipathy toward the railroads?" "I haven't any intense antipathy," an swered Farmer Corntossel. "But unless there's something to find fault about there can't be much conversation, an" I'm goin' along with the general Indorsement of the railroads as the popular topic." Blessings. Oh, blessed is the man who knows Enough to make a speech: Whose graceful erudition shows A mighty mental reach; Who comes before the listening throng With eloquence and skill. And wakes them all, both weik and strong. To a responsive thrill. But far more blessed is the man Who goes from day to day And merely does the best he can With nothing much to say. Ureblamed by all his fellow-men. It Is his Joy to find Himself his only critic when He wants to change his mind. The Crime of Causeless War. I rom the ChiesRO Chronicle. It Is hard for the world to believe that two great European countries will go to war over a question of ascendency in Mo rocco. These powers have professed to be among the most pacific. No other1 nations have espoused more strongly the conten tion that the surest way to promote peace is to make the most tremendous prepara tions for war and no others have more strongly protested that their own motive in preparing for war was a desire to pro mote the world's peace. The world may not have accepted these pacific protestations as entirely sincere, hut it is nevertheless unwilling to believe that two such nations as France and Ger many would engage in deadly conflict for alleged rights and for opportunities, most ly Illusory, wholly outside of their ac knowledged jurisdiction. The proceedings at Algeciras have disclosed the matters ostensibly in dispute and they are not such as should be deemed a sufficient cause of war. The Curse of Shiftlessness. From tie Hartford (Conn.) Times. Whether shiftlessness is a vice that is in curable or a habit that can be overcome it is, anyhow, a condition that perplexes and irritates relieving officials. Shiftless ness is paying one's last r>0 cents for a circus ticket without learning where to morrow's breakfast is coming from. It Is a refusal to repair the leak in the roof when the sun shines. It is killing the goose that lays the golden eggs. It takes no thought of the morrow. It never lays up anything for a rainy day. It always Ignores opportunities. It prefers to rely on neigh borhood bounty to hustling for itself. It won't work except under the pressure of necessity. It never gets ahead. Some Poor Men There. From the Philadelphia Record. A poor man had better keep out of Con gress. Campaign expenses are heavy and they come every two years. No man can go to Congress without neglecting his law practice or his business. If he is a poor man he will probably lose his clients or his customers: a small business or practice will not support partners or managers. After a few years in Congress nijpe men out of ten are beaten for renomination and then, If they have not a fortune or an established business to fall back on, they will try to get some small salaried place under the government and may not be successful. The Butcher Bill. Froji the Hartford Courant. Last month there were 53 accidents serious enough to be written up In the Rail road Gazette?on our Amerloan railroads. Of these 20 were train collisions. The "butcher's bill" for !) of these accidents was IS citizens killed and sixty citizens wounded. Impossible! Froji the Baltimore San.

Moneybak QCC The Great Window Display * of Moneybak Silks. ? Black Silks. One fact known to most ladies is the loss, disappointment and annoyance they have experienced in the J wear of foreign silks, PARTICULARLY TAFFETAS. That has been overcome in the famous Money Sbak Silk (an American brand). No deleterious dyes are used to give them weight. Their B E A U T Y, LUSTER and WEIGHT are solely and naturally caused bv superiority of the pure silk used, by the ab 5 sence of loading with injurious dyts and filling, by skill and excellence in manufacture, using only the lat 4 est and best machinery produced. Still further to show the faith and confidence in the durability, the Moneybak Silks are guaranteed by us not to CRACK or wear badly for the space of Six Months. Think what that means, that at any time imperfections show that can possibly be attributed to the material, we at once, without argument, give the Money Back. What more can be done? The silk itself is beautiful and unequaled for the wardrobe of the first ladv in the land, the price reasonable and the guarantee absolute.
