Oliver Rosea In making arrangements for the ship ment of flour and other products from St Louis to Porto Rlcan points by way of New Orleans Instead of New York as has heretofore been done. Mr. Roses Is a merchant of Porto Rico who wishes to purchase certain supplies In St Louis, and he believes that a 'sav ing of both time and money can be ef fected by shipping his purchases through' New Orleans. It Is to the inter est of the St Louis trade to discover whether the Porto Rican is correct In this belief, and, if so, to profit by the dis covery. St Louis Is an active and ag gressive competitor for the trade of Porto Rico and Cuba. The Porto Rican buyer will find St Louis merchants acting In thorough ac cord with him in a quest for the quick est and cheapest transportation route between this city and Porto Rico. He should also learn that their Influence counts in securing legitimate conces sions, from railroad and steamship lines. In competing for the trade of Porto Rico and of Cuba the business men of St Louis must utilize every fair ad vantage which they may possess. OPENING ON TIME. It should be the determination of St Louis to answer in the affirmative and to the entire satisfaction of an inter ested world the question "Is it possible to open an exposition on time?" by a resolute energy that will compel the completion of the World's Fair on or be fore the date set for Its opening. This achievement would of Itself con stitute a typical Western performance; the doing of a thing which less master ful and less confident folk had declared could not be 'done. It would be emi nently In keeping with the spirit which animated the dauntless pioneers in the Louisiana Purchase territory; bold and masterful men who refused to limit their own performances to the standard et by men not so forceful as they. An intelligent mapping out of the World's Fair work, a fixed and unshaka ble resolve that it shall be done between now and the summer of 1903, a tireless Industry, will result in the opening of the Louisiana Purchase Centennial Ex position on time. It doesn't count that other World's Fairs failed to accomplish such a task. For the World's Fair civic motto of St Louis bears finely on such a point That motto reads "Nothing Impossible!"- MISSOURI'S COMMISSION. Governor Dockery's appointment of members constlrntlnc tho mi,...i Board of Commissioners to the Louisiana Purchase Exposition bears evidence of a careful regard for the board's effective ness as a working body, upon whose ability much of the success of the Mis souri State exhibit must necessarily de pend. The men named to office as State Com missioners are practical and success ful men capable of a satisfactory dis charge of the Important duties which wilt now devolve upon them. The vari ous callings represented by them 'con tain promise of an Intelligent conception of all phases of their work on such a board. It would seem that thn Ktnto-o Inter- estaas an exhibitor at the World's iFair should be safe In the hands of a typical aUssourl body comprising two farmers, no railroad man, one manufacturer, ttumlmatfiiess Ben gad. two lawyers. xast people of Missouri will naturally tae Mtt results from the labors Oommlaaioneni to the This State should lead all a .-.. m T&?

It rests with the State Com missioners as now appointed to achieve this desirable result RESTRICT THE EMPIRE. According to the Supremo Court the United States are an empire, holding de pendencies as chattels, without restric tion upon the central government. Thoughtful consideration of the rul ing to the effect that the people of the Philippines and Porto Rico are nomi nally American citizens, but without rights, except as individuals, under tlio Constitution, emphasizes the necessity for so amending the Constitution as to guarantee their equality before the law. Tills is imperative because of the fact that, under the conditions now created, the government of these dependent peo ples Is exclusively in the hands of Con gross and the President to an unfair and dangerous extent. They may be ruled as a dominant American administration sees fit. They may lie subjected to trade dis criminations and special burdens of taxation. It Is possible to destroy their industries and tlieir commerce for the greater profit of the trusts controlling the industries and commerce of the American States. Taxation without representation Is authorized. Justico and decency demand that the people of our island possessions be se cured in rights which will give equality with the people of other American ter ritorial possessions. Tills can be ac complished only by means of an amend ment of the Constitution which shall place all unorganized American territory on footing of equality. It Is due to our selves as well as to tho people of Porto Rico and the Philippines that this action shall be taken. The Federal Supreme Court's ruling In the Insular cases has established the law governing our new possessions. Under this law as It now stands the new American citizens are not equitably secured in their rights. An aristocracy of citizenship is created. "There are no noble men but Romans." American institutions are a mockery. The Constitution must be squared with the Declaration of Independence. CHANGING A CREED. Calvinism took a great step forward In Philadelphia when one branch of that faith the Northern Presbyterian voted unanimously to affix a declaratory state ment to the Westminster Confession. The action promises to become a mile stone In the history of modern theology. As a practical measure the assurance that the most distasteful doctrines In the time-honored creed will be modified to conform with the convictions of a large majority of the communicants of the church will undoubtedly work for good. There are ministers In Presby terian pulpits whose devotion to the basic principles of the creed is unques tioned, but whose work has been ham pered by certain expressions in the Con fession that in the light of present-day thought are unfortunate. There has been nothing precipitate in the harmonious decision that the Gen eral Assembly has reached. The agita tion for a change is not of a year, but of decades. The great moment of the ques tion has been delicately appreciated by the commissioners In attendance at the sessions In Philadelphia. The discussions have been of a nature to reflect the highest credit on the convictions of the leaders who spoke on the recommenda tions made by the Committee on Revi sion of the Creed. In arriving at a unanimous decision regarding the proposed changes a notable proof of Christian forbearance and patience has been given to those' without the pale of the church. On the first day of - the discussion, the diversity in opinion was great great enough to have discouraged men less balanced. Yet who shall say that the spirit of prayer and love that pervaded the councils of the body and which finally brought about a mutual understanding was not Inspired? By the adoption of the committee's re port, the matter will be taken up again next year, when the million souls con nected with the Northern branch of Presbyterlanlsm will again be repre sented in an assembly that will deter mine .the exact wording of the changes to be made in tho Westminster Confes sion. The whole proceeding is a bril liant page in church history. APPLY THE CURB. Dispatches from Yassar College recall once more the enthusiastic devotion that students pay to athletics. In this In stance, one of the girls in attendance at the school had bo far permitted her good Judgment to lapse that she walked twenty-three miles "for exercise." As a result she had an attack of appendi citis making an operation necessary. Professor Arlo Bates of Boston In a recent article discussing this tendency to overdo athletics in the schools says that the physical results are the least harmful. He cites as an example the case of a Harvard graduate who after a year's absence from school came to him In an effort to find some way for In culcating a love of reading. Books were distasteful to this alumnus. He had spent so much time while at school in following the fortunes of the various teams that his mind had become filled with athletics and little else. There Is a fascination about contests of skill that tends to monopolize the time and attention of the participant In the games played between universi ties and colleges the anxiety to win over tops all else. Amateurs become profes sionals In fact even though the money consideration be lacking. By a gradual weedtng-out process, the picked team and the few substitutes are the center of physical activity. Seldom is there a medium between the professional ath lete and the student who Ignores exercise- altogether. In determining to place a more thor ough scrutiny upon the exercises of the students, the officials of Vassar College are doing only what many of the West ern schools have already done. If more stress could be laid upon hygienic living, exercise or no exercise, the tone of health would be raised. It was the late William M. Evarts who at the age of 80 years boasted that his longevity was due to the fact that he never took any exercise. He was a student above all things. However, he did pay- attention to what entered his stomach, to the air he breathed and to the hours he kept The genius who re marked that "success lies In excess" was far amiss if he referred to physical activities. In no other field docs excess breed decay as In athletics. Germans, above all others; have real ized tho truth of this fact While one of the best developed races on earth, there Is a noticeable lack of this Ameri can love for violent exercise. Their Turner societies, almost a national In stitution, are wisely given up to general development under the direct surveil lance of trained directors. Americans have much to learn in mat ters of tho body. The exuberance of the individual will have to be curbed before the best results can be realized. APPLES VS. WHEAT. In the current number of the Inde pendent attention is called to the rel ative values of the apple and wheat crops. Wliile the fact Is not generally known, it Is nevertheless true that Uiq wheat crop is in dollars and cents worth less than tho anutial yield of apples. The total crop of 1900 was 215,000,000 barrels. Supposing that an average price of $2 a barrel was obtained, the aggregate value of the crop was $-130,-000,000. The average value of wheat is but a little over $300,000,000 annually. By this estimate the apple crop Is worth about 50 per cent more than the wheat There is a reason for this state of af fairs. A European market for American fruit has been obtained. Already the exports of fresh apples exceed 4,000,000 barrels a year. Abroad these apples bring nearer ft than ?2 a barrel. Even at such prices the export trade has in creased every year, until American ap ples hnvo a fixed value from Liverpool to St. Petersburg. Despite the cash value of the apple crop, Uicre is small likelihood that -a failure of the crop throughout the United States would bring on a panic or a depression in the money market such as would a wheat failure. We do not regard apples as a staple. There are comparatively few sections of the country that make the raising of apples the sole means of support Yet there is reason to believe that be fore long the American palate will re gard the apple as a necessity. It Is the usual thing for a family living in the city to have a meat bill running.lnto the hundreds of dollars while only two or three barrels of apples will be used. "We are growing frugivorous instead of carnivorous," observes the Independent and before long pastry and bread will be subordinate to the better food. Since the Paris Exposition the trade in American apples has Increased enor mously, owing, it is said, to the fine dis play made there last year. Americans aro beginning to think more and more of the distinctive American fruit Own ers of large orchards have a bright pros pect OTHER BRESCIS. It is difficult to.see.ln what way.Gae tano Bread advanced "tho cause of lib erty" by his assassination of King Hum bert Yet more difficult to believe is the theory that his suicide wiU hasten the day of "universal freedom." Bo far as most of us have been able to discover, the fact that Humbert was killed and Brescl committed suicide Is sufficient evidence that the world is free enough for anarchists already. Within the ken of present readers there falls memory of assassination ever having accomplished the high Ideas In whose name the deed was committed. Dynamiters who slew Alexander in St. Petersburg did more to hinder the ad vancement of freedom in that country than all the efforts of despotism. Poor Wilkes Booth did more hurt to the South through his rash act than Lincoln could ever have attempted. Later, the assassins of President Gar field, of President Carnot of the Em press of Austria and of King Humbert only cemented the people against out rageous methods. Behind Brescl remain comrades who are as depraved as the dead man. More Is the pity, the members of this band are said to have their headquarters in this country. With high sounding theo ries, striving for "natural rights," they violate every elemental virtue. For the sake of human progress these half crazed villains should be caged in every country. Just to make things Interesting, Gov ernor McSweeney of South Carolina has decided to get into the Senatorial game. The jack-pot looks bigger every day. - It seems that the Porto Ricans were, constitutionally, 100-per-cent American citizens until Congress shaved off 10 per cent to oblige the Sugar Trust Uncle Sam's determination on a record-breaking World's Fair exhibit proves his possession ' of the genuine Twentieth Century spirit. i Gooseberries and cherries are on the market. For the 6mall boy's benefit it may also be observed that paregoric is also on the market. Whatever one may think of the Judg ment of Senators McLanrih and Till man, it is not possible to doubt their po litical pluck. Since the Constitution doesn't seem to reach to our Island possessions fair play demands that we extend Its 6copo by amendment Somo persons will naturally conclude that tho Vanderbilt University medal won by a Chinaman is made of wash-' leather. Judging from St Louis's recent ex perience a May day In May is much rarer than the poet's 'vaunted day in June. An Indianapolis woman is renorterl in .have kept a diary for the past flftv years. It must have, been a borrowed one. Among the bther unique features of the World's Fair of 1003 will be the fact that it opened on schedule time. Six sites have been offered for the World's Fair. Needless to say, no light ning rods have been planted. Some people have greatness thrust upon them. Messrs. De Lima and Downee, for Instance. Those Texas oil prospectors who didn't get In on the new Sour Lake strike will feel bitter.

Some Big and Impressive Chunks of Ore How Big Red Ap ples Are Displayed The School Exhibits. SPECIAL, CORRESPONDENCE). Buffalo, N. Y., May 28.-The Stnte of Mis souri has no exhibit building at the Pan American Exposition, but the Louisiana Purchase Exposition Company has mode arrangements for the erection of a $10,000 building on tho grounds, to be used as headquarters for Missouri and as the source of Information regarding St. Louis's big exposition. The Louisiana Purchase building will be erected on a site In the heart of tho dis trict set arart for the State and foreign buildings. The site was at first granted to the State of Maryland, and plans for a big building were made, but as the State did not show sufficient energy to promiso completion at tho proper time, and as the Louisiana Purchase emissaries were clam oring for space, the slto was turned over to them. The building is to be In the early Nineteenth-Century stylo of architecture, to em blematize the period in which the purchase was made, and is to contain no exhibits. Offices, a bureau of information, a bureau for the distribution ot Louisiana Purchase Exposition reading matter, retiring and resting rooms and a post olficc where Mis sourians may receive moll will be the feat ures of the structure. The appropriation of SO,C00 made by the last General Assembly In Missouri for on exhibit at the Pan-American Exposition and at the Charleston Exposition has been devoted to the preparation of elaborate ex hibits In the main exhibit building. Divided the Exhibits. Immediately after Governor Dockery ap pointed the Commissioners they went to Buffalo to secure space. Then they re turned to St. Louis to plan and design the exhibits and separated to travel to various points In Missouri to collect materials. The Commissioners found it hard to get space. They had been appointed In March and the exposition was to open May L. The space had practically been all assigned when they reached Buffalo. By bringing pressure of various kinds to" bear they prevailed upon the superintendents of exhibit divisions to force other exhibitors to divide space with Missouri.

The Commissioners divided up the ex hibits and each proceeded with the work assigned to him. advising, with his con freres whan necessary. C. C Bell prepared the horticultural exhibit: E. S. Garver the ogrlcultural exhibit Ed Crumbaugh, who hnd charge of the Missouri exhibit at Omaha, was chosen ns chief assistant In the preparation of the agricultural exhibit. F. P. Graves, manager of the Doo Run lead mines, was given charge of the mines and mining display. 5eorgo Reeves of Jasper County was made-hl9 assistant. Missouri's educational exhibit In the Manufactures and Liberal Arts building was assigned to Robert M. Yost, and the dairy and forestry exhibits were given to John F. Beat. The Space Allotted. Tho space secured was: Horticulture. 1,000 square feet; agriculture, 1,000; mine and mining, GOO; educational display In the Lib eral Arts building, "seven units''; dairy, 10 feet, with SO running feet of shelf; forestry. 110 square feet. Despite the tardiness of the beginning and .the fag ends ot space to which Missouri was assigned In some of the buildings, Missouri's exhibits ore as near completion as the ma jority of the displays, and compare very favorably with those that surround It. In each display is an elaborate bit of planing mill work, bearing the name of the State, and In some cases Its coat of arms. This work Is the product of a St. Louis mill. Missouri has wasted none of the space that was assigned to her. Her mines and mining exhibit 'occupies a triangular corner of the very small Mines and Mining build ing. Over the entrance Is an arch of elabo rate planing mill work bearing the Inscrip tion, "Missouri." Beside the entrance Is a stack of pig zinc, weighing two and one half tons, contributed by the Rich Hill Zlno works of Rich Hill, Bates County. At the other side is a bank of tho disseminated lead ore that forms the wealth of St. Francois and Washington counties. This Is the solid palenn, with very little of the limestone that forms the "gang" rock In these locali ties. Tho floor had to be shored up to sustain this great weight. Rising in terraces Into the corner are shelves bearing specimens of Missouri's min eral wealth. There Is a big section showing the lead and zinc, tho galena and blende, of Jasper and Newton counties. Another sec tion has the syenite granite and the barytes. or heavy-spar, of Washington County. Here also are beautiful bits of specimen ore from the lead, zinc and Iron fields of the State great chunks of the ore made up entirely of the characteristic cubic crystals of galena, great masses of doubly-terminated calcite crystals or dogtooth spar. Here also are specimens Of hematite, from Pilot Knob and Iron Mountain. ' The Ore Exhibits. Several series of specimens, showing the ore concentration processes used In the St Francois County mills, are also shown, be ginning with the rough-crushed ore and go ing on to tho ground ore, the products of the Jigs and the collections from the slime tables. Specimens are also shown of the process through which granite is put to pre pare it for use In granitoid paving. The counties represented In this exhibit are St .Francois, syenite lead; Ste.

Commissioner Graves has also sent to Buf falo several glass cases ot specimens col lected by him during a lifetime, showing the mineral resources of the "Three Ameri cas." The specimens all have curious feat ures of gsng rock or crystallization to rec ommend them to the collector. Doctor Day, superintendent of the Mines and Mining building, has devised a unique method of concealing the bare walls. He has covered them with paintings, supplied by the exhibitors, showing mining plants In their States. Missouri has two paintings, showing the Plcher Lead works at Joplin and the St. Joe Lead works at Bonne Terre. With the permission of Superintendent Day, Missouri has lodged at one sldo of the out side entrance ot the Mines and Mining building a great chunk of solid galena, weighing several tons, as it cornea from the St Francois County mines. Only a few displays In the Mining build ing compare with Missouri's in Interest One Is Michigan's showing of the product of her copper mines; another Is Ontario's dis play of graphite. The Canadian Province has erected a big pedestal of solid graphite and surmounted It with a figure emblematic of Ontario. Agricultural Dlaplay. Service as a Missouri Commissioner at Omaha and Buffalo has whetted the exhlb ltlve appetite of Commissioner Graves, and ho promises that at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition his company will show a com plete St. Francois County milling plant, crushing. Jigging and concentrating the ore, all In active operation, If the space Is avail able. Missouri's display In tho Agriculture Building Is moro elaborate than its mining display, although the exhibit Is made up of "between-crops gatherings." "The appropriation camo so late," says Attacho Crumbaugh, "that we had to scour the State for specimens of agricultural wealth. Walt till wo get the new crops ready for Charleston, and then you will see a real agricultural display." Missouri's agricultural display abuts that of Illinois: The latter State had a longer time to gather 'the material for Us exhibit and has made a remarkable showing. Mis souri's display, however, is easily in the same class. In the center of her exhibit space. Mis souri has planted a column thirty-five feet In height, the highest exhibit in the build ing. The column Is crowned with a sheaf of wheat supporting a banner bearing the Inscription, "Missouri." The pedestal of this column has glass compartments in which are shown grains In seed and in straw, six varieties of corn, wheat, oats, millet and blue grass. Another feature of the .display Is a corn crib, containing corn from Boone County. The corn Is In layers, yellow, the Boone County Gold Mine; red, the Red Butcher: and white, the St Charles White. It Is crowned with an artificial car of corn, twenty-seven inches high and four and one halt inches In diameter, closely resembling the real car. On shelves In the rear of tho exhibit are shown fifteen varieties of wheat, twenty varieties of oats, beside broojncom,. clover. cow pease, buckwheat, Hungarian grass. M.is. on tssvszsnssa sssi COMMISSION. read the World's Fair act very carefully. The section of that act which provides for a building- constructed entirely of Missouri materials lays on the commission a puzzling task. We cannot construct that building entirely of wood or stone or gran ite. The Intention, it seems to me. is to make that building an epitome of tho re sources for building material which Mis souri has. ... "I myself would like to hear from MIs souritins In this matter, and I am sure my i-olleasues will Join with me in asking foe suggestions from Missourians as to the ex hibits and the buildings to be supplied un der the supervision of the commission." i MMHBMBMl LUMAN P.
