extensive voyage ot ili<- American
battleships to foreign countries will
be regarded as one of the most re?
markable Incidents hi the history of
the country. /
It la evident that ihr people of San
Francisco propose beginning, today,
to show tknt they appreciate and rea?
lise fully what the trip thus far menu*
and ?hat the coming voyage conveys
to the nation. They are right in be
licvlng that 0ie officers and men who
man the ships should be given a royal
welcome and that their entire stay
In the city should be over remember?
ed by them for Its cordiality and1
whole sou led hospitality.
For a long time one of Chicago's
flourishing Industrios has been its
numerous matrimonial bureaus. Other
cities have similar institutions in
their midst but is ha.; been the Windy
City which has been the chief gold
' brick dispensor iti this connection,
but the city seems to be tiring of Its
; distinction and is taking steps to
drive the matrimonial brokers out of
' business. Ouc woman has already
been convicted of conducting a bu
j reau on the ground that the whole!
' thing was s fake affair and trials of!
'other matrimonial brokers are to fol-i
I low soon. During the trial which pre-1
I ceded the conviction of the woman'
' It was shown that the same pictures'
[wore used and reused and the wealth]
j of the affinity hunters was greatly ex?
aggerated in all cases. It ap|waredj
' that a number of business men of tile
city furnished financial backing for a
number of love-providing enterprises
and derived handsome profits from
the frauds. These men are to be
charged with swindling and proceeded
against criminally.
The matrimonial agency is a bunco
game so old as to almost entitle It
to a ?place as an American lustitu
| lion, and while there can be no doubt
that such concerns should be broken
I up. It is almost impossible to have
, any sympathy for the annual crop of
fools who drop iheir money into them.
The right spot for any man who hopes
to draw an affinity out of a matrimo?
nial agency is a home for Imbeciles.
But it was a wise old gambler who
added to the long list of truisms K
declariug that a "sucker is born even
minute." and It is upon this unfailing
supply of fools that the matrimonial
bureau thrives amazing well. U in?
variably happens that the soul mate
supplied by the marriage broker rap
Idly develops into a proposition so
hard" as to make adamant feel like a
bunch of eiderdown, and if the mat?
rimonial agency serves a useful pur?
pose at all. It Is furnishing a school
g| experience. In which fools learn
something which they would have,
never learned in any other way.
However, as a money separator and
divorce-breeder, there is no other en-'
terpriae yet Invented by American
genius to equal the matrimonial bu?
reau as it is conducted in Chicago and
other large cities. The fool not hav?
ing anywhere near as much brains as
the mules being driven through the
streets of Newport News Is. of course
not aware of this fact, nor ran he
know that marriage ofien is a failure
even when approached along the most
cautious and legitimate lines. An
abundance of the double extract of
trouble Is as inevitable as death if
other than the time honored methods
of securing a wife are adopted.
In one respect at least, these upperI
air and <<olar walk navigators of the'
empyrean seas, as some of the bal
loco sailors call themselves, hate an!
advantage over poor mortals whoi
merely crawl about the surface of the'
earth. They ran really make their'
wives look up to them

At the close of a recent speech In
New York. Mr. Bryan was question?
ed as to his views on the disfvan
ehlsfemcnt of negroes In the South
and he said that they had the oppor?
tunity to get wlthl nthe law by com?
ing within the educational qualifies
tlon. In this connection he took oc?
casion to call the attention of Repub?
lican.-; in the North to the fact that
under the laws they have fastened on
tile Filipinos not one of the latter CSg
vote under any qualification. On the
ether hand the negro In the South
has the advantage of living under the
laws made for the black man and the
white man alike, but the Filipinos are
kept under luws made for them and
not for us.
Rut the most Interesting part of
Mr. Bryan's reply to the question pro?
pounded to him was his assertion that
the white man in the South had dis?
franchised the negro in self-protec?
tion, and there ig not a Republican
In the North who would not have dons
the same thing tinder the same clr
cunistances. "Those Repul^lcans in
the. North." he said, "who dispute Ih's
or say they are different from the
j South either are not frank with them
! selves or are assuming what Is not
tmc The white men in the South'
will not allow a few men to use C.ie
solid black vote to further their own
financial and political Interests. And
that wah what had l>een done."
Mr. Bryan was well within the
I mark when he told his audience that
I the white men in the South were giv?
ing the negroes better laws than ths
negroes'would give to-the white men
were they making the laws.' Moreov?
er he made a rather telling point by
citing the fact that the disfranchise
! ment of negroes did not originate, in
j the South, but in Washington, where
It was determined lo disfranchise
j every negro, even If they had to dis
! franchise every white man to do It
i The great number of negroes in th(
, electorate made this course neccs
nary In order to secure orderly and
intelligent government in the District
of Columbia.
It Is gratifying to know that Mr
i Bryan stated his views on the qnes
: tlon of negro disfranrbiscment frank
ly and clearly, and also the position
'of the white men of the South, when
i be said they were'determined that
the negroes shall be disfranchise,:

Novel Methods of Raising Revenue
Resorted to Years Ago.
The statement that the chancellor
of the exechequer is "considering"
the question of taxing theater tickets
is certainly somewhat startling. Rut
, such a, method of raising additional
I revenue would by no means be so
Inovel cr disturbing as some of the
suggestions which have been made to
, harassed chancellors of the exche
] quer in the past.
I In 1!HW Mr. Austin Cljamb'-rlain had
j to provide for a deficit of some 6.000.
| flu? pounds, and some extraordinary
suggestions wefe made to the mem
Irrr for Ea^t YVorcestershir ? on that
{ occasion by these who considered
. themselves fully capable of teaching
? Mr. Chamberlain his business. Among
! other thlnes on which It war. said dn
? tics should be imposed were such ne
> ressitics as hoots, baths, lamps, hats
and even umbrellas and perambula
i tors.
l/>rd Randolph Churchill wa.J the
first chancellor of the exeehetpter to
propose a tax on tickets of admi<sion
to theaters. In fact, this was oniv
onc of several novel schemes which
' he Intended to introduce Info his i??d
