Prosperous Palestine.
From the Chicago Tribune.
The holy land Is flowing with milk and
honey. The stimulus given to Palestine
trade Is In great measure due to plentiful
rains and consequent good cereal and
orange croDs and th? unt
tlve restrictions. Twenty years ago the
revenue was about ffJ.ooo. while last year
It was estimated at $2UO.OOO. Another incentive
to trade is the annually growing
number of tourists who now visit the country
in spring and autumn, arriving frequently
in specially chartered vessels. At
Gasa th? government purposes to build a
?ea Jetty, which would give an Impetus to
trade there, us at present there is only
an open roadstead, and whenever the sea
Is rough the loading or dlschanrlnir of car
goes is Impracticable. The governor of
Heersheba Is doing his best to encourage
building. A carriage road Is being made
to Hebron from Beersheba, which is also
a telegraph station. The Jaffa-Jerusalem
railway Is a prosperous line. In about a
year a new carriage road will be finished
to the Dead Sea and Jericho.
The Entomologist Clown.
From tlie Daily Graphic.
The relics of the famous clown Grlmaldl,
which are to be sold In London during the
autumn, do not bear any reference 11 his
favorite but little-known hobby. When his
Inimitable talents as a clown this popular
favorite combined a passion for entomology,
which he was able to practice amid fields
and hedgerows which have long since been
transformed into bricks and mortar. Indeed,
Ills energy and enthusiasm led him even
further afield, and in the counties of Surrey
and Kent the Camberwell Beauty and
other species which have since become ln?.
creasingly scarce fell victims to his net.
Altogether the drawers of his well-stocked
cabinet contained no fewer than 4,000 specimens.

Program to Be Formally Opened Next
Friday Evening
Meetings to Be Held Daily in Differ
ent Sections of the
Beginning with next Friday, November
30, and continuing until Thursday, December
6, the Young Men's Christian Association
of this c'.ty will conduct what is J
ulanned to be the greatest religious cam- | ,
paign ever conducted in Washington, excelling
even previous one.1? under the aus- ,
pices of the local association. Fred B. ,
Smith, the noted Y. M. C. A. speaker, who
not long ago returned from a successful
tour of the world, will conduct the series of
meetings. Donald Chalmers, basso, will
sing and will have charge of the musical i
features of each meeting. Other prominent
Y. M. C. A. workers from American cities
will assist the local staff of secretaries and*
I officers at various stages of the campaign.
Mr. R. A. Waite, jr.. of New York city,
has been here for the past two days in con- .
ference with the local authorities in arranging
the program for the campaign,
which is to be carried out under the guidance
of the religious work committee of
the board of association directors. Commissioner
H. B. F. Mucfarland is the chairman
of that committee and his assistants
are Miles M. Shand, Hugh T. Thrift, '
Charles F. Nesblt, John B. Sleman, jr., W. !
H. H. Smith and M. W. Baldwin. H. M. ;
Arnold, the religious work director, will
witH Mr Smith.
The exercises will be formally opened at '
6 o'clock p.m. Friday, when a supper and i
conference will be held In the banquet room j
of the T. M. C. A. building, 73(5 G street
northwest. The dinner will be followed, at
8 o'clock, by a big meeting in the gym
naslum of the association building, to which
I Invitations will be sent out. 1
Saturday Program l
Saturday will be a busy day for the lead- 1
ers of the campaign. At !?:30 o'clock a.m.
there will be a boys' rally, In the boy^
building. At noon Mr. Smith and h!s party
will Join the men at mess at the marine 1
barracks, and he will make a brief address.
At G o'clock is scheduled a meeting of the ,
high school boys' committee, including two
representative boys from each of the high
schools of the city. During the evening a 1
reception to Fred Smith will be given In the ?
lobby of the association building.
Sunday Is expected to develop one of the '
notable features of the campalgn, a big '
meeting In the Belasco Theater at .i:w p. i
m. being the most important. A special \
musical program will be included in the j
service. At 9:30 a.m. there will be a meeting
of the dormitory men in the lobby of '
the association building. At 7:.T0 o'clock t
there will be a meeting held in the First j
Congregational Church, at which Mr. Fred
B. Smith will be the speaker. '
Monday at noon there will be a conference '
with the ministers of the city. At 4:30 8
o'clock a theater meeting for women will be 1
held, and in the evening there will be a f
meeting in a church, in either Anaoostla or
** * "I Tiiflcflav's ftfhedtllft for J
XVIUUiil x icaoaiiv, -?
Mr. Smith opens at 12 o'clock, with his attendance
at several shop meetings, which
are being started under the auspices of the
local association. As these are regarded as
of great importance, Mr. Smith will give
them special attention. At 4:30 o clock Mr.
Smith will speak before an audience at the
Howard University. The Northeast Temple
will be the scene of the evening assemblage.
Meeting for Students.
A meeting specially arranged for George
Washington University students will be
held at 12:30 o'clock Wednesday, and at
3:30 o'clock the same day Mr. Smith will
speak at local street car barns, when ar""
will Ko mo/lo trt norm} t ctroot
iangciuciiiii n in uv. tuuuv w v w?. ?.w> j
railway employes to attend. The evening
meeting will be conducted In Georgetown, f
at a place to be decided upon. i
One of the notable events of the campaign
will take place at 5:30 o'clock Thurs- *
day. when a converts' supper will be held /
In the association building. The attendance _
at this supper, It is believed, will be a good ?
indication of the success of the campaign. 5
The evening meeting, the closing one, will h
be held at Fort Myer.
This religious campaign is expected to
mark an advanced step over anything ever I
attempted In the country. The theater meetings
held in the past have been copied by J;
many associations In other cities; the whirl- ;
wind campaign for a new building has been
attempted in a manner similar to that car
ried out here in many western cities, Including
Houston and Dallas, Texas; Detroit,
Mich.; St. Paul, Minn., and other places, so
it is expected this series of religious meetings
will set an example and a pace for
other associations to follow.
Fred B. Smith, who is to be the leader,
has just returned from a western trip, having
been very successful In Denver, Col.,
and other large cities. Donald Chalmers, ?
the basso who accompanies mm, has won
for himself a reputation as one of New r
York city's best bassos, singing there until 1
recently !n one of the largest churches. ~
Busy Week Ahead. I
This week will be one of the busiest fh *
the association, several Important events a
being scheduled as preliminary to the cam- g
palgn. Mr. Walter M. Chalmers, a lawyer I
of New York, will address the men's meet- d
ing this afternoon at 8 o'clock In the gym- v
naslum on "The Trial of Jesus From a t
Lawyer's Standpoint." Tuesday evening the _
club, led by Mr. C. F. Nesbit, will discuss i;
another of the live topics of the day. They
took up last week the question, "Does Re- i
liglon Interfere With Business?" Thanksgiving
night the first annual dinner to
"young men away from home" will be *'
given, and the number of acceptances already
received by the association indicate
that the attendance will be large. Friday, as
stated, will begin the campaign meetings ?
under Fred B. Smith.
Plan Submitted for Secretary Taft's t
Consideration. 1
Brig. Gen. Edwards, chief of the bureau r
of Insular affairs, and Charles A. Conant of 1
New York, who was a member of the com- c
mission which framed the Philippine cur- a
rency system, have presented to Secretary 8
Taft a plan for the recoinage of the Phil- ?
lpplne silver money. That plan, however,
will not be made pulbic until It has been G
aaopieu Dy me I'nuippine commissioners 11
and approved by the President, as pro- '
vlded by the law authorizing the recoinage. "
The necessity for the recoinage was to ^
reduce the percentage of silver to an t
amount less tlian Its bullion value In or- P
der to put an end to its being melted. The P
law provided that the percentage of silver o
should not be less than seven parts silver f
to three parts alloy. It has been found t
that if that amount of alloy is used it will a
make a very hard coin and that It will not C
stamp as easily as silver.
Therefore. It is believed that it would be a
mucn easier to counterfeit It than It would v
to reproduce the present coin. The bureau 1
of Insular affairs and their advisers con- r
sldered the advisability of reducing the i:
weight of the coin without decreasing the a
percentage of silver, and It Is believed that t
Is the plan that has been recommended, g
The plan will be cabled to the Philippine h
commissioners at once. n

riiioiiunu, .fa., November 24.?The
announcement is made here this evening
that next Tuesday morning there
will be started from Washington, D. C., to
Atlanta. Ga? one of the most unusual convict
trains in the history of the world, in
that on it there will be all the government
prisoners from the penitentiaries In the
eastern states of the country. The new
government prison at Atlanta has but
lately been thrown open to the government
convicts of the countrv who arc at nreu.

of the government. Orders were received
by United States Marshal Stone
here today to take the government prisoners

convict named Miller for a stay in the proceedings.
Miller was cashier of a national
bank at ClaysviUe, Pa., and went

ROME, November 2-1.?The Nuova Antoogla
for November contains an interesting
irticle by Commendatore Bonl upon the leg;nds
of Trajan?a subject which seems to
lave .been suggested to him by his recent

of photographs from the Flemish
:apestries now In the Berne Museum from
:he capitals of the ducal palace of Venice
is well as from medieval and renaissance
jictures, engravings and majolica, which
end to show how the legend of Trajan

Startling Decline in the Exports of

PEKING, November 24.?The tea and silk
rades of China are In a bad1 way, and
here is no use on the part of the governnent
to longer attempt to disguise this
act. In 1804 the silks represented 82 per
ent of the exports of the empire. Now they
ccount for only 45 per cent. The commisioner
of customs at Oanton is authority
or the statement that the tea industry
eems doomed.
The London customs in 1904 registered
,000 chests of tea adulterated with flings
and sand, hence it may be Inferred
hat the tea consumers alone are not to
dame. This shifting of the tea trade can
>est be shown by the fact that in 1904 the
Jnited Kingdom consumed 16,557,720

Spanish War Veterans Approve
President's Course.
Addresses Delivered at Meeting of As*
tor Camp, No. 6.
For Best Interest of the Army and
# Good Citizenship Generally?
Yells and Cheers.
The action of President Roosevelt Jn
dismissing from ,the military service,
three companies of the 25th United States
Infantry was indorsed last evening at a
gathering of Spanish War Veterans comnncpH
of mombprs nf oie'bt nf on mnA
In the District of Columbia. The occasion
was a eampfire given by Col. John Jacob
Aster Camp, No. 6, United Spanish War
Veterans, at Costello's Hall, to whi?h
soldiers generally had been invited. A
number of Grand Army veterans were
also in the gathering.
This action mentioned was brought
about by an address delivered by Department
Commander J. Walter Mitchell, who
occupied a seat on the platform.
Significance was attached to the fact
hhil tuc iiiciiiuci n ui ^rtiup, uiiuci
whose auspices the campfire was given,
are all former regular soldiers of the
United States army, and that every man
among them was either disabled in the
war with Spain by either disease or bullets.
Best Interests of Army.
Commander Mitchell began . by saying
that an army officer had asked him what
the Spanish War Veterans thought of the
action of their comrade in the White House
In discharging three companies of the 2jth
Infantry. He replied, he said, that all
American suiuiers nave ine greaiesi iaiLii
In Col. Roosevelt and his judgment; that
"we do not believe he has erred in this
matter, and that what he did was for the
best Interests of the entire American army
and for good citizenship generally."
Capt. Mitchell Intimated that had the
three discharged companies been composed
of white troops there would perhaps have
been no protests, no indignation meetings,
nor communications to the newspapers condemning
the President's course.

the department commander Insisted, was i
based upon the evidence before him. That
evidence was furnished by tried and trusted
army officers of long experience In the
military service. It showed that American 1
soldiers wearing the uniform of their country
had committed an act of outlawry
which, had it been committed by men,
white or colored, not wearing the army
uniform nor seeking protection within a
military post, would have resulted in their
arrest and punishment by the law they had

indignant protests that "shooting up" a
town and killing law officers, besides endangering
the lives of Innocent women and 1
children, should have been passed by without
punishment to the offenders.
Color Question in Another Guise.
He also stated that in the last analysis the
matter would be found to be but the omnipresent
color question in another guise. He
said tile American soldier had more latitude
and is treated with more consideration than

should be models of good citizenship and
the tiue guardians of the people and the
law In time of peace. The quiet judgment
of the great American people, which Is analytical
and just, has rendered Its verdict,
he believed, and It Is that President Roosevelt
acted conscientiously and to the best
of his judgment, and In doing so gave the
entire army a square deal.
The department commander deprecated
the false impression that, he said. Is
sought to be created that the President
has "turned against the colored

his contribution to the fund for the sailors
who prosecuted certain parties in Rhode \
Island for ejecting them from a public en- c

ldent was the true friend of all true Amer- i
lean soldiers, be they colored or white. I
Difficult Matter to Decide. *
"The case of the colored soldiers of the ^
25th Infantry," Commander Mitchell said '
In conclusion, "was a difficult one to decide,
but I contend that in his decision
