America and Japan.
Baron Uchida's first deliverance upon
reaching town is worthy of his mission
He is here to help promote good feeling
between America and Japan, and he an
nounces for his government a policy cer
tain to work that moat desirable end.
Japan, he says, does not desire her
laborers leaving home to head this way.
She does not desire them to leave home
for any quarter. She has work for them
there, and thinks they are best em
ployed there. She will exert herself to
keep them at home.
The success of this policy will remove
all friction between the two govern
ments. The labor question was the basis
of all the recent trouble on the Pacific
coast. With that removed?as it has been
by Japan's course?no danger of a re
newal of the trouble remains. Japanese
students, and travelers, and merchants
have always been welcome in America,
and will continue welcome. Whatever
they may find here of interest and worthy
of study is open to their inspection.
Had China adopted a course like this,
the trouble that for years has vexed her
relations with us would have been avoid
ed. The anti-Chinese agitation on the
Pacific coast grew out of the labor ques
tion. So powerful did it become that an
exclusion law, aimed at coolie labor, was
the only remedy. Had it not been applied
we should soon have had an appalling
situation to deal with. Chinese coolies
were pouring into the country, American
labor was in angry protest, and Congress
fell obliged to act.
China not onl> did not want to keep
her laborers at home, but resented the
prejudices felt against them in this coun
try. And while it was comparatively
small, there was just enough opposition
to the exclusion law in America, pitched
in a sentimental key, to increase the
anger in China. Co-operation by her.
in the way of discouraging coolie emi
gration to America, would have bad a
most excellent effect.
But the law was challenged, and a reg
ular system of smuggling by individuals
established. Chinese coolies in America
increased in number. They came in both
from Mexico and from Canada. The
borders were closely watched, but the
pickets were evaded. Some injustice was
done as the result of increased vigilance.
Now and then a Chinaman entitled to
enter the country was halted and sent
back hrfme. But this was due to the
rigidity of the inspection the smugglers
. had made necessary, and not to any pur
* pose in official quarters to misapply the
Today the general situation is greatly
improved. Our relations with both China
and Japan are most cordial, and there Is
nothing on the horixon threatening any
undesirable change.
The Christmas Spirit.
The day before Chrietmas brings reflec
tions as to the nature of the occasion and
the tendency today in some measure to
forget the real significance of the celebra
tion in the social and personal aspects of
the modern holiday. The making of gifts
is now the dominant concept of Christmas
day, unfortunately in many cases apart
from the spirit which originally moved
men to pause in their activity and com
memorate an event of the greatest sig
Gift-making should be undertaken with
thought for the motive of giving and not
merely the pleasure of selfieh enjoyment
bestowed upon the receiver. Value in
terms of commercial appraisement is the
poorest possible measurement of a Christ
mas present. The merest trifle offered in
the true Christmas spirit Is worth the
most precious gem or costly fabric that
can be tendered.
There is time in these last few hours
before the candles are lighted on the
trees and the home is aroused by the
clamor of young voices to consider this
aspect of the case, if it has not been borne
In mind before. Many children are taught
to expect Christmas presents as cer
tainties. Some are led to anticipate them
as rewards for good conduct. "Santa
Claus will not come if you are not care
ful" is often heard. This threat of dep
rivation is held over the heads of the
little folks for weeks before Christmas
Christmas should be celebrated, not
utilised. It should have a deeper, fuller
significance, even to the children, than
merely the time for something pretty,
something interesting, something enter
taining and something good to eat. It
should be impressed upon the minds of
every one who observes the day that it Is
the birthday of Him who came to help
humanity, and that His grest gift to the
world was understanding.
Mr. Taft may enjoy getting. Into a
sweater and taking a brisk walk, but he
will scarcely attempt to revive the mara

One of the most favorable things to be
noted about foot ball is that its season is
very short.
Politic*?The Modern Oame.
Former Senator Hemenway, who re
cently resigned an office here whose sal
ary was large and whose duties were
pieassnt, will return to Indiana, and
report assigns him to an Important busi
ness post In that state. It is believed,
however, that the real object of the
change Is political, and that Mr. Hem
enway?still a young man?will be heard
from again In the political world.
This is the era of very strenuous and
very practical polities. Indeed, it Is
the era of politics all the year round.
One campaign shades off into another.
The doors of the party managers are
never closed. These astute gentlemen are
alwsys on the job. Every movement of
voters between elections is promptly re
ported. and considered, and recorded.
Men moving out of a state are traced
to their new homes, and local chairmen
notified. Men moving into a state sre
made welcome, and invited to call at
headquarters and meet the "boys."
Here, then, Is the problem for men with
political ambition to solve. They must
remain near base; watch developments:
appraise sll changes; keep In sight of and
In touch with all party workers operat
ing close hy. To accept a place at a dis
tance la to lose poeitlon In line; to give
a rival at home the advantage; to go to
the foot of the class. Washington is a
pleasant town of residence, but a long
way from New England, or the west, or
the middle states. An ambassador's or
a minister's place has attractions, but
it takes a man out of the country. Polit
ically considered, he might as well be on
the planet Mars, working on a canal
ooat, as at Tokio, Peking. Constantinople,
or St. Petersburg. His flvals at home
undermine him. The "boys" forget i
him. He returns to find himself almost a
stranger. j
Gen. Jackson entertained a strong at
tachment for Martin Van Buren, and,
thinking to promote his political for
tunes. appointed him minister to Great
Britain. A hostile Senate refused con
flritiation, which kept Mr. Van Buren
close to base, and he succeeded Gen.
Jackson in the presidency.
In the case of James Buchanan the
wheel turned differently. He was ap
pointed minister to Great Britain, the
Senate confirmed the appointment, and
he was thus out of the country during
the three troublous years Just preceding
the wrestle for the democratic presidential
nomination in 1856. He returned home
in time to play the role of a compromise
man. and, as such, won the prize.
The old order has passed. There were
giants in those days, and they played a
great game of politics, but their descend
ants have introduced wrinkles which
would puzzle some of the fathers
Diplomacy and Trade.
The coming American diplomat will be
an accomplished "drummer." He will
keep "samples" in his office, and show
them upon application. His concern
will be about extending his country's
trade, and he will be a mine of informa
tion about his country's resources. He
will, by such means, earn his salary and j
justify his existence.
Such is the criticism of the new tend
ency of things In the State Department.
It is characterised as too commercial; as,
indeed, having nothing but commerce in
Twenty-four years ago a man of prom
inence was an applicant for a diplomatic
post upon a proposition of this kind. He
was Gen. John S. Williams of Kentucky,
whose term as United States senator
had Just expired. He waa called "Cerro
Gordo" Williams, having, when a young
man. won distinction in the battle of
that name In the Mexican war. He had
Just suffered a severe reverse at home,
and as nothing further seemed open to
him in domestic politics, he desired serv
ice out of the country.
The Mexican post Axed hia fancy, for
two reasons, one sentimental; the other,
practical. He wanted to go back on a
peace mission to the country against
which he had once fought as a soldier,
and he thought he saw in the post of
American minister to Mexico an "oppor
tunity to improve through American in
ventions and agencies the agricultural
life of the Mexican people.
Gen. Williams, although long In poll
tics. was also a farmer of large and
successful operations. He know how to
till the ground, and had alway^ employed
the latest and best means of sowing and
reaping. He knew also the backward
conditions of that day In Mexico, and it
occurred to him that he might be of
great use to his own people and to the
Mexicans as well by stimulating trade
between the two countries, and particu
larly In the matter of farming imple
ments and farming products.
His Idea was regarded as a little droll.
But he stood to It, and declared that an
American minister could not be better
employed than by concerning himself
with practical, everyday questions, in
stead of Indulging in a sort of gilded
loafership, with now and then an official
dispatch to the State Department at home
to show that he was still alive.
Gen. Williams was a little ahead of his
time in this matter, and met the usual
fate of such man. He failed of ap
pointment, and spent his remaining years
on his bluegrass plantation. But some
thing of what he then proposed has since
taken hold, and both our consular and
our diplomatic representatives today are
under Instructions of a very practical
character respecting everyday affairs in
countries where they are serving.
The Independence League.
Mr. Hearst is entitled to the control of
the Independence League, and should he
run for governor of New York next year
a* its candidate, the race will be one of
nat'onal and absorbing interest. Oq the
republican side there is some talk of
Mr. Roosevelt, although Gov. HugheB
would again make a very strong candi
date. On the democratic side the situa
tion is as yet shapeless. With Leadei
Murphy of Tammany Hall and Chairman
Conners of the state committee at dag
gers drawn, all discussion of candidates
is more or less idle.
There is every prospect that the Con
gressional Record's list of gifted and en
terprising contributors will begin next
month to make up for the absence of
special holiday editions.
Steamship companies are being called
on to reform the steerage. Such a pro
gram might save some trouble for the
New York polio*.
The argument seems to be that King
Leopold was one of those high financiers,
who could not restrain their subordinates
from misbehaving in a lucrative manner.
Mr. Bradley, who was Mr. Cook's
backer, says "To the infernal regions
with the north pole!" These are melting
Uncle Joe Cannon may Joke with some
of his troubles, but that will not prevent
him from insisting that the Insurgents
keep their distance.
The lata Christmas shopper is under
special obligations to keep his temper in
the crush he has helped to create.
Doubtless Mr. Bryan takes some credit
for the fact that he never indorsed Dr.
Cook as a democrat.
Cook's Story.
Now that Dr. Cook has been rejected
by the University of Copenhagen, there
is no lack of post-fact critics who are
able to analyze his story and all the cir
cumstances connected with his claim with
profundity and precision of reasoning.
Nor is there a dearth of specific accusers,
sure of credence and a hearing in the
I general feeling of antagonism against
Oook which prevails at this time.. It was
to have been expected in these cir
cumstances that even the undeniably in
teresting and thrilling narrative that
Dr. Cook put forth as a description* of
hia Journey to the pole would be as
persed m cribbed, borrowed or bought.
Quite as a completion of the cycle of
condemnation now comes a story from
New York to the effect that a young
Dane declares that a countryman of-his,
an accomplished Journalist, who has ac
quired a fluent command of the English
language through long residence in Eng
land, wrote large portions of the Cook
story a* it was published, and that he re
ceived for it a considerable sum of mvney
In payment. It doe* not appear that this
disclosure Is made in consequence of a
failure of Dr. Cook to pay his bllla, as
was alleged in the caie of Barrille, the
Mount MoKinley guide, and Loose and
Dunkle, self-confessed fabricators of
polar observations.
All that is now certain about Dr. Cook
in this respect is that he went up into
the frozen region with two Eskimos and
that, after spending some months out of
communication with inhabited centers,
he returned with a remarkable story of
polar attainment. The Danish Univer
sity declares that he has not proved his
claim as polar discoverer. The world
accepts the verdict, with few exceptions,
and is ready to forget Dr. Cook as quickly
as possible as one for whom the only
conceivable excuse for his remarkable
fraud is that he is not mentally respon
sible, a theory which gains some color of
probability from his unthinkable folly in
hiring confederates end failing to pay
them the wages of their service.
About the only advantage that a presi
dent of a Central American republic en
joys is the fact that he is not expected
to have regular office hours..
Even Peary's just indignation toward
Dr. Cook does not equal the indignation
of the men who tried to get him to pay
for a gold brick outfit of records.
Of course, strawberries are expensive
just now, but no ultimate consumer will
Insist on them as one of the necessities.
Some of the controversies are affording
strong temptations to the muck rakers
to reorganize.
A Sense of Superiority.
"That family seems inclined to put on
airs over the neighbors."
"But they are no richer or more dis
tinguished than the rest of us."
"No. But they got. all their Christmas
shopping done two weeks ago."
An Anti-Noise Opinion.
"Are you familiar with Dickens" "Christ
mas Carol'?"
"Not exactly familiar with it," replied
Mr. Growcher. "But I heartily approve
of it. One of the best things Dickens did
was to invent a Christmas carol that
people could read quietly Instead of try
ing to sing it."
A Shopping Experience.
If time Is money, as they say,
It is surpassing strange
That for a half hour we delay
To get 2 cents in change!
In Fear.
"Why does Santa Claus move about so
stealthily?" asked little Rollo.
"I suppose," remarked his father, "that
he's afraid all the families on his route
will insist on his staying to supper and
hearing the youngest recite ' 'Twas the
Night Before Christmas.' "
"So your father dresses up and Imp'er
sonates Santa Claus?"
"Yes," answered the sadly critical Juve
nile. "Sometimes the only thing father
gives me for Christmas worth mentioning
is a good laugh."
A Juvenile Appreciation.
Old Santy is the nicest man
That anybody knows.
He doesn't do a thing but plan
New joys where'er he goes.
Among the people, great or small.
Who make this old world glad
He surely Is the best of all?
Of course, excepting dad.
His whiskers are so long and white!
His face is red and roi#d.
But just the same, he is all right,
As we have often found.
We never laugh at him. You see,
'Twould maybe make him sad.
Of course, he can't expect to be
Good looking, like my dad.
Though Santy's strong on Christmas day,
And wondrous things can do,
He doesn't cheer me on the way
And help the long year through.
Some time to thank him I'll contrive
For all the gifts I've had;
And just as long as I'm alive
I'll love him?next to dad.
Another Inauguration Say.
From the Salt Laka Herald.
There can be no reasonable objection to
the changing of inauguration day from
March 4 to some time in April?or even
in May. A bill now under consideration
in Congress contemplates the abandon
ment of the old date, and the selection
of one not so likely to produce pneumonia.
Without doubt the date or the manner of
celebration should be changed. So long
as thousands of people from every part
of the republic want to see the President
inducted into office, the ceremonies will
have to be conducted In the open air. No
house would be large enough to accom
modate them. And the people are likely
to insist on attending.
And, since it cannot be managed within
an lnclosure. then some consideration
should be paid to the health and comfort
of the throngs who want to be In Wash
ington at the time. When March 4'was
selected as inauguration day all the peo
ple likely to be interested could be accom
modated in a Philadelphia church. It was
only because of his courtesy that Wash
ington stood on the front steps of the
Treasury building in New York when he
took the oath. He could have retired into
the lobby of the building and taken his
whole audience with him. Things are dif
ferent now.
Home for the Holidays.
From the Baltimore American.
Pouring from the various colleges of
the land the stream of homegolng stu
dents bent upon Christmas vacation
pleasures makes one of the finest fea
tures of the glad season. Most of them
by this time are home, but very many
have long jaunts across the country
and are still en route, bent upon mak
ing the hearthflre by the break of
Christmas day. Every one with a home
to return to and with parents or guar
dians in whom to center affection Is
sure of the warmest welcome and the
most delightful holiday. Meetings with
friends,- the exchange of experiences,
the outburst of pleasure over gifts and
the general geniality of the Christmas
occasion form a strong contrast to the
humdrumness of school life.
Belgium's New King.
From the New York Tlmea.
King Albert begins well with a prom
ise of the enforcement of a policy of
humanity and progress Jn the Kongo
and an assertion of his unshakable be
lief in constitutional liberty and inde
pendence Everybody believes that he
means what he says. He is expected
also to free the Belglsn throne from,
scandals. He goes to It burdened Ity
none of his own making.
A Foolish Weakness.

One of the most foolish weaknesses
to which men become addicted is stub
