Contributors to the Fresh Air Fund cannot fall to be impressed by the happy significance of this finan cial statement. The money contributed is for the pur pose of Riving poor children an outing on the river and excursions in the country at regular Intervals through out the summer. It is evident that the Fresh Air Mls- tion, her rich territory laid open for tiust spoliation, the monopoly combines will be satislied indeed. Then, with Ilanna himself nominated for the Presidency, they can afford to spend money like water for Ito publican success at the polls. The American people are in synipithy with Mr. Roosevelt In this fight, but they do not by any means j nccept his defeat as meaning the triumph of the Han- elon has reduced its working expenses to the lowest na crowd at the polls. Quite to the contrary, this possible point in its determination that the children j ,noit recent illustration of trust dominance in the Re shall enjoy to the fullest the benefits of the Fresh publican party has strengthened the popular deter- xue snowing oi jib atiiioicujL-ms m auiBii- miuatlon to remove that pnrtv from power In tho Air Fund larly gratifying. - FRIDAY, JUNE 20, 1002.

H- PANAMA CANAL VOTEX Yesterday the Panama Canal bill passed the Senate nnder'-Senator Hanna's leadership. If this Is a maneuver to ultimately force favorable terms rom tho Central American States whose inter ests aro affected by tho Nicaragua canal it may be statesmanship, though not of an exalted kind. But. remembering that the transcontinental railroads have maintained a lobby to thwart any canal consumma tion and that the French Panama concern has been long anxious to sell to the United States, It Is a mat ter of national regret that Senator Hanna was suc cessful. Senator Jones and several other Senators who voted for the- bill were undoubtedly honest in relying upon .the -Walker recommendation of the Panama route. It Is always fair to admit the force of an opinion from such authorities as those on the "Walker board. It Is alsoalways wise to hope that the national policy se lected, though apparently mistaken, may turn out to be' the best The-country will Insist that tho Panama, vote shall not be followed by a prolonged obstruction of all plans for an Isthmian canal. The canal is a commer cial necessity. $ STREET-OAR SCHEDULES. Lawyers employed by the street railroad compa nies contend that the city ordinances should not med dle with tho schedule of cars on the various routes. Their argument Is that the companies should not be forced to run a car unless the travel is sufficient to afford a profit That is exactly what the city ordinances should force the companies to do. Of course, nobody expects a street-car system to be operated, as a whole, at a loss. But the public convenience would be sadly em , barrassed in fuel is right now embarrassed if the companies were left unwatched to their prime busi ness of making1 every car pay a dividend. St Loute grants street-car franchises for public convenience.' The companies invest their money f6r privnte profit Tho dry cannot rightfully Insist that ( cars bo operated to suit every Individual citizen's con venience or whims, but It would fail in Its duty if it did not require the general public convenience to be served and served well. licit alone the companies will run tho smallest pos sible number of crowded cars. At hours when the traffic (does not fill the cars they will be run at long intervals. Xo detailed explanation is required to show that such a method will put almost every man at one time of dayor another to harmful Inconvenience. City -ordinances should fix a minimum schedule for each route. The principle to govern should not be the dividends of the companies on one side or the unreasonable demands of Individuals on the other, but a fair and sensible regard for the general convenience of the public ., FItESH AIR MISSION REPORT. There Is so excellent and unusual a showing in the financial statement of the Fresh Air Mission for the pastear that It is well worth while to call public attention to the matter as furnishing additional proof of the directness of this organization's work of help fulness. The money subject to the disposition of the Fresh Air Mission for 1901 amounted to a total of $1,3J.37. 'Of this amount there was expended $14150.56, leaving a balance on hand of 510S.81. And of the ?1jo(5.50 HOLD A CONFERENCE OF EXPERTS. Colonel Bill Phelps has not retired so far into the tall timber that ho cannot be called forth by a cry from his partners. Surely the Colonel Is needed. Five financial ex perts employed by the Republican machine to estab lish by mathematics certain campaign allegations are further apart than ever were Kerens and Akins over pie. Colonel Bill is an expert himself in producing "el bow to elbow, shoulder to shoulder" harmony. His powers aro needed now worse than whan he herded the Republican leaders In his office. Unless the live financial experts can be brought elbow to elbow and 6houlder to shoulder the State debt campaign upon which he and Keren and the rest eotmt will fall to pieces under popular ridicule. Phelps's O. K. is probably considered necessary, any how, before the "expert" tables can be officially accepted as Republican campaign documents; so he Is the man to get them in line, elbow to elbow, shoulder to shoulder. As tho experts now stand, each set of elbows and shoulders Is far apart from the others and at most unmilitary angles. Between January 3, 1ST3, and the same date 1901, there was available In Missouri from all sources for the payment of bonded debt $33,S02,564. According to the claims of the five experts, the wicked Democrats have stolen S32,0."S,119. Tho Globe says that the debt at the start was 521,000,000. Conse quently, the Democrats, If these experts are to be be lieved, have paid off nearly all of $21,000,000, with all accumulating interest and expenses, and have stolen $32,03S,119, with only 503,802,504 to work on. Mis souri must have produced a dynasty of supernatu rally smart Democrats In the past thirty years. Colonel Phelps's team of experts are muddy In their statements but as nearly as can be gathered from their figures, they get their 532,058,119 this way: Aggregate of daflcits oa current bend transactions as flrurad by Mr. Drer er In a lone sarlta ...... -310,843.000 XIlsouri Pacific bonds paid twice, as fltured by Mr. Parkas 19U.C00 Hannibal mad St. Josaph bonds net credited, as figured by Mr. Partes....

Look a little further. Gnstin says that the total de ficit is $11,200,170; Parkes says thai la it $11,59?,863; Creclllus says that it is ?13,60S,257; Ramsey appears to make out ?3,710,200; Dreyer did not totalize any where Intelligibly, but seems to regard $10,S4t),000 as enough for his purposes. There Is, to be sure, a certain resemblance of to tals among these expert allegations. But see how the experts get at their results. Gustln makes up his $11,200,170 out of these Items: $S,32G,19S loss on school funds, $783,972 of overpaid debts and $2,090,000 of bonds still unpaid. Parke con structs his $11,596,363 out of the $1,91S,000 Missouri Pacific bonds, the $3,000,000 Hannibal and St Joseph bonds and other items; Creclllus makes an interest fund loss of $G-19,045, a bond payment loss of $1,091, 230, a school fund loss of $1,802,000 and adds other Items; Ramsey makes a loss of $4,650,000 In bond payments, one of $549,340 in interest payments and one of $510,234 In premiums on bonds; Dreyer gets at his $10,840,000 deficit In bond account In a totally dif ferent way and with a multitude of totally different items. Can anybodyman, woman or child put these "expert" findings side by side and not perceive the ab surd Incongruities which vitiate the whole business? The Globe parades its faith In Missouri experts as against New York accountants. That has as much weight as If a Southerner boasted of fidelity to John Jasper's astronomy on the ground of John's place of residence. It Is pleasant to see the Globe at last prais ing anything in Missouri, but mathematics has no geography. We have the Star's word that the Globe's afternoon colleague applied to Haskins and Sells when it contemplated an examination of tho State books. So it Is not a fault In Republican eyes to seek the highest accountant talent In New York when a long series of complicated fund accounts Is to be examined. But without that example it is axlomati cally true that geography does not make mathematics better or worse. The Globe's expert mathematics is bad so bad that a boy on the street could see the badness in five minutes. Five "experts," no two agreeing either in totals or in the items of which the totals are composed, have charged deficits In the man agement of State finances and errors in the report of Haskins and Sells. What are the charges worth? What aro such "expert" labors worth? These men contradict each other and disprove the figures of each other. The net result is that an Infamous attack upon the integrity of Missouri has been revived under condi tions vthlch of themselves eliminate everything but the shameless malice behind the attempt. Government. The party has reached that point where Its most evil men are In tho ascendant. A party In this stage of decadence is no longer to be trusted. The Hanna crowd now stands in its true colors before the voters. Its nominee for the Presi dency Is doomed to defeat as certnlnly as that the will of the people Is still supreme in tills country. ..- DC WET'S ADVICE TO THE BOERS. General Do Wet's address to the Roers gathered in camp at WInburg wai notable for a manly acceptance of defeat and its penalties which is characteristic of one who has maintained a good fight in a good caue until so hopeless that a further continuation of tho j conflict would mean a criminal sacrifice of life. The patriot-soldier now advise his countrymen to submit to the new Government and make the best of existing conditions. "Perhaps It is hard for you to hear this from my mouth," he says, "but God has decided thus. As a Christian people, God now demands that we be faith ful to our new Government. Let us submit to his de cision." All the Boers under arms will doubtless accept this wise view of the situation and abandon thoughts of further resistance to Great Britain. There will be no double-dealing and no attempt to rebel against au thority once recognized. The Boers are a manful peo ple. They hive fought in a good cause and been de feated by overwhelming numbers. They will abide results with the dignity inseparable from straight forward coura.30 and essential steadfastness of character. Congressman Bartholdt of St Louis annonnces that Missouri is for Roosevelt and that the President sends his greeting to the Republicans of Missouri through the Tenth District Representative and asks him to "work in harmony to redeem the State." An alliance to "redeem" Missouri has already been formed by Missouri Republicans, with Colonel Dick Kerens, Colonel Bill Phelps and the Globe-Democrat constitut ing Its head and front This, presumably, is the or ganization with which Mr. Bartholdt will "work In harmony." Its head. Colonel Dick Kerens, prefers Senator Fairbanks for the Presidency instead of Mr. Roosevelt and personally launched the Fairbanks boom In Missouri. How does Mr. Roosevelt like the aspect of things in Missouri as thus Indicated? $ And now It's the Tennessee Republicans who Insist upon "booming" Mark Hanna for the Presidency. It's just terrible the way Mark is being tormented in this matter. Even In Washington, right under his very nose, there's an organization to direct the Hanna Presidential Boom. Why won't they leave the poor man alone? $-j With the defeat of th'- Cuban reciprocity bill In Congress the final act of starving the Cubans into sur rendering their independence and accepting annexa tion will begin. It Is a spectacle which cannot be contemplated without shame by Americans. RECENT COMMENT. MARRIAGE OF MISS MARY DURKIN- SURPRISE FOR LOUIS BESCH.

Senator Hanna is reported aa havlnc made the air sulphurous yeaterday'ln denunciation of the newrpapers that have criticised his attitude on the isthmian canal Question, and was specially vituperative In regard to a cartoon In Friday's Star that represented him as the painter of a lurid picture of KIcar&suan olcanoes, with J. J. Hill In the background applauding his work. This be regarded as an Insinuation that he was under the in fluence of the transcontinental rallroadB In his opposition to the Nicaragua route. Now, for a man of the ability and sense of humor of Mr. Hanna. he shows a surprising roadlr.ess to fit this cap to ills head. The Star believes In tho honesty of mo tives of Mr. Hanna, not only In the canal matter, but In all his career, yet, as has been pointed out in these columns many tlmea, the adocates of tho Panama route, and all tin.- other elements of opposition to the Nicaragua route, aro unwittingly plajlng Into the hands of the steamer and railroad Interests that are working to prevent the con struction of any Isthmian canal. In Mr. Hanna's hair-raising description of the Nlcara gu&n volcanoes ho waa simply echoing the horrified utter ances of Railroad President J. J. Hill a month ago, who said: "Nicaragua la a dangerous and tmflt place for any great works of a pabllo character, and, most of all, for a vast canal system, built of concrete and masonry, to which any earthquake or olcanlc disturbances would be- fatal." Qutte naturally the Star's cartoon put Mr. Hill in tho attitude of applauding Mr. Hanna's graphic work of art In the some line. Tiiey bith use a big brush and the reddest kind of paint.

President Roosevelfs announcement that he will make no further effort to secure the passage of the Cuban reciprocity bill Is in effect a notification that he realizes the power of the Republican machine op posing that measure and la hopeless of obtaining fair play for Cuba. The insolent and arrogant Hanna Republicans who, at the bidding of the trusts, have thus humiliated Mr. Roosevelt in bis attempt to maintain American good faith are playing a crafty game. They hope to accomplish two effective strokes by defeating the Cuban reciprocity bill. The first Is to put Mr. Roose velt off the track for the Presidential nomination by distinctly repudiating him as a Republican leader of authority. The second Is to starve Cuba Into beg ging for annexation. This game Is undoubtedly being played at the dic tation of the trusts. The monopoly combines have no manner of use for Mr. Roosevelt as President Mark Hanna's hatred for Roosevelt was undlsgulsed ly shown In the Republican National Convention of 1000. It will be shown more plainly in that of 1004. The trusts command that Roosevelt be destroyed as a Presidential possibility. Klaalnc the Boole In Onth-Tnklnc Syracuse Herald. Kissing the book, which is a practice of oath-taking In the couru of most enlightened countries. Is a relic of the time when kissing was general In the older countries. It Is purely a form ot custom for which there Is no direct authority In law. The date of its introduellnn In iinlninm although it Ib certain to have originated within about three ' centuries. But tho laying of the hand on the Bible In taking oaths i9 of great antiquity, and the laying of the ' hand on the altar of a deity In invoking tho deity to wit- ' ness a statement or promise Is older than the gospels. The I English people were formerly more addicted to kissing! than they now are. It was a form of salutation so common I that It excited the Interest and amusement of forelgn-r-. It is, therefore, at least possible that the kiss be'towed upon the book In taking an oath may not have been In Its origin h much a kiss of veneration as a form of salutation or acknowledgment. A new Jaw recently enacted by the British Parliament allows that witnesses In court may be swornfln the Scottish manner, that Is with uplifted hand, repeating a solemn invocation to the deity Instead of tak ing the Bible and kissing It. This has long been a practice In this countr. 'AflrY Thrnslieil a Foreign Minister. Washington Post. Representative champ Clark of Missouri tells an Inter esting story concerning an independent young American who thrashed a foreign Minister. "When Mr. Blaine was Secretary of State," says Mr. Clark, "he deputed a young man in hit office to go with a message to a certain foreign Minister here. The young man, after searching In ain at the Legation, finally found the Minister nt a club and gave him Mr. Blaine's message. Tho Minister, who was rather testy, flared up and gae the joung man a tremendous 'cussing.' Thereupon the latter administered a good, sound kicking to the foroign Minister and departed. The Minister complained and so the young man was publicly reproved. In private, however. Blaine congratulated him, 'only,' he added, 'thank God It yias not i-aunceiote whom you kicked.'
