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

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

turn back In its tracks In this matter. It

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
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
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
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.

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
This is not the first time that Bishop Tur
ner has proposed "a line of steamers be

traps and "lighting out" by w><ot;sale. He
never goes Into particulars, bui the gener

tion. And here In this New York corre
spondent he seems to have made a convert.

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

knowledged jurisdiction. The proceedings
at Algeciras have disclosed the matters

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.

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.
