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

'WORLD'S J904 FAIR.
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
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
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
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
As tho experts now stand, each set of elbows and
shoulders Is far apart from the others and at most
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:

In this citation The Republic has endeavored to
avoid any items In which the five experts, or any two
of them, agree.
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
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
"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
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
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.

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

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
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.
Thrnslieil a Foreign Minister.
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.' "
Left ta the Imagination.
Rear Admiral Coghlan. who was with Dewey at Manila,
brought home with him a lot of good storief including one
that Illustrates how readily Japanese women take on
Occidental Ideas as to costume. At an early day in the
career of new Japan some ladles of Tokio decided to adopt
Anglo-Saxon dress, and so they ordered elaborate ward
robes from Paris, Bending explicit instructions that the
garments should be packed In cases In the order In which
they were to be worn. These orders were carefully carried

VT. then, farewell!
I have touched the highest point of all my greatness.
And, from that full mcrid'an of my glory.
I haste now to my setting; I shall fall
Like a brlsht exhalatisn In the evening
And no man see me more.
So, farewell to the little good you bear me.
Farewell, a long farewell, to all my greatness'
This Is the state of man: to-dy he puts forth
The tender leaves of hope; to-morrow, blossoms.
And bears his blushing honors thick upon him:
The third day comes a frost, a killing frost;
And, when he thlnks-good, easy man full surely
His greatness Is a-rtpenlng. nips his root.
And then he falls, as I do. I have ventured
Like little wanton bojn that swim on bladders.
This many summers In a sea of glory:
But far beyond my depth; my high-blown pride
At length broke under me, and now has left me.
Weary and old with service, to the mercy
Of a rude stream, that must forever hide me.
Vain pomp and slr" of this world, I hate jc!
I feel my heart new opened Oh, how wretched
Is that poor man that hangs on princes' favors!
There Is, betwixt that smile ho would aspire to.
That sweet aspect of princes, and their ruin.
More pangs and fenrs than ware or women hae;
And when he falls, he falls like Lucifer.
Never to hopo again!
Cromwell, I did not think to phed a tear
In all my mUerles; but thou hast forced me.
Out of thy honest truth, to play the wrman.
Let's dry our ejes; and thus far hear me. Cromwell.
And when I am forgotten, as I shall be.
And sleep In dull, cold marble, where no mention
Of me must more bo heard of say I taught thee
Say Wolscy, that once trod the ways of glory. i
And sounded all tho depths and shoals of honor.
Found thee a way, out of his wreck, to rise In;
A sure and safe one. though thy master missed it.
Mark but my fall, and that that ruined me!
Cromwell. I charge thee, (ling away ambition!
By that sin fell the angels; how can man, then.
The Imago of his Maker, hope to win by't?
Love thyself last; cherish those hearts that hate thee
Corruption wins not more than honesty.
Still in thy right hand carry gentle peace
To silence emlous tongues. Be Just, and fear not.
Let all the ends thou alm'st at be thy country's.
Thy God's, and truth's: then. If thou fall'st, O Cromwell,
Thou fall'st a blessed martyr! Serve the king;
And, Prithee, lead me In:
There, take an Inventory of all I have.
To the last penny; 'tis the king's; my robe y
And my Integrity to heaven. Is all
I dare now call mine own. O Cromwell, Cromwe'i
Had I but served my God with half the zeal
I served my king, he would not In mine age
Have left me naked to mine enemies!
