WORLD'S 1904- FAIR
..
TWO MAIN APPROACHES.
Llndcll and West Fine boulevards are the mala
avenues of approach by vehicle to Forest Park and
the World's Fair.r They vie with each other for
popularity as convenient driveways. On each street
are located some of the finest mansions in the city.
The roadways of both hre wide and the promenades
broad, and the yards and walks are adorned with
trees, shrubs and flowers in greater lavlshness than
on most of other residence thoroughfares.
Running from east to west, in the very center of
the city, to the parkway on King's highway, to the
principal entrance to Forest Park, and onward
through and beside Forest Park to the World's Fair,
they are, naturally the. most convenient driveways
and therefore the most used. Add to their conven
ience of location and course, their utilitarian ad
vantages of wide roadways and broadi promenades,
and their aesthetic attractiveness of elegant man
sions and landscape decorations, and the causes of
their popularity are apparent.
The present Inferiority of LIndell boulevard to its
parallel claimant for favor is due to the pavement,
which is variously described as a dirt-road or a
park-road pavement, according to the point of com
ment. The pavement on West Pine boulevard is a
smooth-surface material, which Is clean, presents a
good appearance and makes Tiding easy. The mac
adam pavement on Llndell boulevard Is not at all
In keeping with the surroundings. It is dirty, soft,
has a surface which In places might be called deckle
edged and Is kept in repair only at great expense to
the taxpayers of the whole city.
The Republic does not recommend that LIndell
boulevard be reconstructed with the samd pavement
that has been laid on West Pine boulevard, although
this pavement Is probably as satisfactory as any.
But It does advise the owners of property along LIn
dell boulevard, who have objected to the street's
Improvement, to withdraw their remonstrance and
support the city In its plan to make LIndell boule
.vard as lot an avenue as West Pine boulevard now
5s.
The situation of LIndell boulevard is such that
ihe property-owners cannot, under present circum
stances, have it maintained as an exclusive drive
, yray. It will bo used, whether It be Improved or not;
and, if the roadway Is not reconstructed, It will In
comparatively short time assume an appearance
1 that would not bo creditable to the costly residences
on its sides. The dry cannot afford to bear the high
cost of repairs, inasmuch as this favor is not shown
to other streets, and consequently, so far as the city
Is concerned, the plain macadam pavement' would
have to be neglected.
The publieaplrited reasons mentioned will prob
ably appeal to the civic sentiments of the protesting
property-owners and Induce them to change their
attitude and concur in the plans for providing a bet
ter pavement on LIndell boulevard. Owners of prop
erty on "West Pine boulevard realize that a good
pavement would be beneficial in every respect, even
though it should increase the number of conveyances
on the avenue, and they not only advocated the im
provement, but fought for it.
IJndel boulevard property-owners should do like
wise. It needs a better pavement A better pave
ment will produce real benefits for the property
owners and residents as well as for the public in
general and for the city. LIndell boulevard is too
Important an avenue to be what Is termed a park
road. It ought to have a new, durable, good-looking
pavement The city should proceed to have the boul
evard improved and the property-owners should give
the. improvement zealous support
:
WASH THE SUN.
The surprise exhibited by "the man who was as
tonished to hear that there was a;Bpot on the snn
and no reporter on the spot Is acquiring added point
Judging by the numerous phenomena and disturb
ances which the said spot is declared to hate caused,
it surely is time that some enterprising journal dis
patched an Investigator to Investigate.
We are informed that the spot is nothing more
nor less than a tremendous electrical storm. The
authority for this statement is not at hand, but the
explanation has been advanced In all seriousness.
It seems as good as any other, and as imaginatively
logical as auy that could be supplied, barring, of
course, the discoveries which would be accomplished
were the reporter to send a special from the scene.
We are furthermore Informed that the great
storms in the East, the marvelous and recent dis
play of the Aurora Borealis, and, last but not least,
yesterday's earthquake, are the direct result of the
electrical storm, or, rather, the spot.
In the light of these things any rational man must
be convinced that the sun need's an application of
the panacea for spots which removed the spot after
a spot had been spotted on the butcher's gown In
Spotless Town. In short, the old sun needs to be
burnished up a bit. Wo simply cannot stand for a
sun with a spot on it It puts us under a cloud.
TUESDAY'S EFFECT OX NATIONAL POLITICS.
Only a few States were directly affected by the
filling of otlices in Tuesday's elections, but the re
turns excited actually more comment than those of
last j car's congressional contest.
Johnson's complete rout in Ohio aids in making
New York and Maryland the center of attention.
McCIellan Incomes a presidential possibility. Sen
ator Gorman will now be more definitely named
by those Southern Democrats who favor a plan of
campaign based on the old alliance of the South with
New York and other doubtful Eastern States. Judge
Parker is scarcely to be in the list from this time
forward. If New York Democrats press any of their
own number, obviously it will be the young Mayor
elect, "Little Mac the Second."
Senator Gorman as a presidential candidate has
always seemed stronger than he was. Most political
leaders who are In touch with Washington admire
him. These leaders are always conspicuous and what
they say quickly becomes public reading. But when
ever the inquiry reaches the stage of weighing the
favor of the party's rank and file the Gorman pres
tige begins to be less potent. After all Is said it
Is the tariff which divides the Democrats of the
country from the Republicans. Other issues are to
be fought out next year as other issues have been
fought out in other campaigns, but the fact remains
that nine Democrats out of ten believe in a tariff for
revenue only with no special privileges; and that no
man who does not represent that common party con
viction can satisfy the great mass of party voters.
Senator Gorman, therefore, In spite of his many
services to the party and his unquestioned skill of
management, is not likely to be nearly as strong In
the convention of 1904 as he was In that of 1S91';
and it Is remembered that not even the Intense feel
ing of the opposition to Cleveland could inspire a
coalition for Gorman on the anything-to-beat-Cleve-land
side of the convention.
Missouri has united its entire Democracy In urg
ing the nomination of Senator Cockrell. If the cir
cumstances warrant an energetic and tggresslvc
movement as matters shape themselves next year,
this State will throw Itself unreservedly Into a Cock
lell campaign. The Senator has all the personal qual
ifications of a successful candidate and a great
President But.Missouri Democrats realize Senator
Cockrell having been the first to Insist forcibly on
that view that the union of all elements of the na
tlonaUDemocracy on positive party questions Is the
main object The situation in other States may indi
cate a ticket neither member of which has yet been
named in a prominent way. Certainly, neither Sen
ator Cockrell nor the voters who trusthim will per
mit the delegation from this State to be bundled up
by ambitious manipulators who entertain the design
of trading with It when the convention assembles.
Missouri will be ready to exert freely and with In
telligence its naturally powerful influence in Demo
cratic national councils.
It Is doubtful whether Tuesday's elections have
made much more definite than before the phophecles
concerning the Democratic nominee. Mr. McCIellan
has not shown that he can carry New York State.
With a majority fifty per cent larger 'n the city, Mr.
Colcr lost the State last year. The chances are that
In the State outside Mr. McCIellan is not as strong
as Mr. Coler. It must, however, lie said that, while
he is not as strong, the Democratic party Is doubt
less stronger ihan it was last year. It Is therefore
possible that he can defeat Roosevelt inNew York
State. Still, the municipal victory in the city cannot
be called convincing evidence of Mr. McClellan's
availability even in his own State. If Western and
Southern Democrats surrender their own prefer
ences and yield to an apparent political necessity of
carrying New York they must at least believe It to
be fairly sure that New York can be carried.
As this year's elections affect the case nothing in
dicates that the West and South may not most prof
itably look for the nominee among their own leaders.
In other words, the East has not, in New York or
Maryland or anywhere else, brought forward a mnn
who either arouses the general enthusiasm of the
party voters or who offers a certain prospect of local
strength at the great pivotal points.
More and more, as the situation Is dispassionately
considered, It becomes probable that the Democracy
will elect the President next year. With wise use
of its opportunities there Is something approaching
certainty that It can defeat President Roosevelt
Missouri and the rest of the West and South need
not yet commit themselves to any particular geog-
.raphy of nominees.
THE PANAMA REVOLUTION.
The secession of Panama from the United StatPS
of Colombia Is of grave concern to the United States.
This nation's interests in that quarter are of such
paramount Importance that hostile foreign influences
will assume that Americans incited rebellion. De
spite" the gross Bttipidity of the Colombian Assembly
In refusing to accept the offer of the United States
with relation to the canal, there can be no logical
ground for any such assumption; but the fact re
mains that this is one of the factors which will com
plicate the situation.
The revolution, contrary to the general precedent
in South and Central American troubles of the kind,
la a very logical occurrence. The United States de
sire to build an Interocean waterway through Pana
ma, which Involves an expenditure of vast sums
and which, when completed, means an enormously
increased business activity in the neighborhood of
the canal strip. For reasons not altogether plain,
which hint at the persuasive Influence of a corrup
tion fund, The Republic of Colombia turned down
the proposition, thereby working great Injury to
Panama. Panama certainly has good cause for un
dertaking the unequal contest
The action of the American Government in send
ing Bhlps of war to the scene, under orders to pro
tect "American interests," was a necessary step.
The United States, by treaty, must keep a traflic
way clear across the Isthmus, and has every right
to land marines for the purpose. Circumstances, de
pendent upon the' course of Colombia and upon acts
overt and covert which may be, committed by, that
Republic, may justify even more" active" measure.
The occasion Is one for the exercise of caution as
well as determination.
Still, the sight of a few United States battleships
"cruising" down in that region m.iy have some cr
fect in bringing Colombia to its senses In a matter
which is mobt vital to the people of the United
States. Let them "cruise," then. And let us hope
that this influence, together with the activities of
Panama revolutionist1!, may lead to a palpable dem
onstration of Colombia's sanity.
q..
Missouri, looking at the Woild's Fair year and
the best battleship afloat, is determined that the
fame of the State shall be heightened at every op
portunity. Missouri likes to be shown. This time it
will show the country how to get up a testimonial
which will make the navy proud. Let. every town

RECENT COMMENT.
Spanish Customs Inspection.
Chicago Record-Herald.
If you want the real thing in the way of a customs
Inspection, cross the border from France Into Spain. The
New York Inspections are idle to them. At Irun, where
we entered the country from Biarritz vestcrday, every
thing was overhauled. The passengers from the train
were driven Into a sort of pen, where their small pieces
of baggage were first examined, and very carefully ex
amined. I couldn't find out what they were so lgilant
for, and -suspected that there must be a good deal of
smuggling across the French border, but was told that
it Is only the Spanish way. The officers confiscated every
cigar they found, and every cigarette, and wouldn't even
let the owners pay the duty upon them. And every duti
able article, no matter whom it belonged to or where It
came from, was taxed. Wo got oft comparatively easy,
but I was compelled to pay $7.50 duty on my typewriter
so much a pound. The Inspector took It out of the case,
put it upon the scales, noted the weight, wroto it down
upon a form, required mo to sign It, and then sent mo to'
the cashier's desk to settle before he would let the ma
chine go by. But the officers wero very polite and han
dled the contents of our trunks with great delicacy
more than they showed to some of the natives, whose
wardrobes were scattered over the whole place. Men
snore and women cried, but the revenues of the king
dom were protected.
Mndnmc Mnrclicst's View of Death.
Saturday Evening Post.
The teacher of Melb-v, Calve, Dames and a long list of
lesser celebrities Mme. Marches), Indefatigable toller
and Interesting pcrs-mallty, at tho ago of 76 Is still so
absorbed in her life-work that she has forgotten to grow
old.
At the end of a long afternoon that I spent with her
at her home in Paris last summer, and as we were say
ing good-by, I told her that I hoped to seo her again in
April.
"Who knows?" she answered. "I am old, I may be
gone. Oh, that wo have to die! That wa hive to die!"
She exclaimed passionately, all the conventionality gone
out of her tone. "That is the hard part of It."
She seemed to forget that I was standing there, and
was looking at the walls hung thick with portraits of
her noted pupils.
She is a thoughtful woman, piously Inclined. Death
in the ordinary sense has no fears for lir. It was of her
life-work that has absorbed her energies, and of her de
sire to keep on doing in the world, that she was think
ing of that which she might accomplish If years were
granted1 her. not of regret at tho mere snuffing out of
life, but of life's usefulness.
npoleons of FInnnce.
Engineering Magizlnc.
"Tho flippant term 'Napoleon of Finance' embodies a
fundamental truth. The same restlessness of con
ecious power, the same hungering for empire, tho same
craving for the Intoxication cf victory, now find In the
field of Industry the outlet that once was to fojnd only
In tho field of battle. And the. same glamor of im
mediate success dazzles the people and throngs them
about the victor, de'lrious in the glory of tho present,
careless of the stability of the future. But the same
law underlies all nature, and will not be denied. The
overblow bubble will burst the overstretched fabric will
break the unstable structure will fall."
The analogy is plain. The American leaders of
finance, beginning with undertakings which had econo
mic justification, but sinco drunken with success, have
expanded their campaign to the limits of dreamland.
Varying Xcjrro Tjpes.
Outlook.
Most of us make an error in the very beginning of our
study of the negroes We falsely nssumo that they are
a homogeneous people, while, as a matter of fact, the
numerous African tribes represented widely varying de
grees of Intelligence and of savagery or semiclvilization.
The individual emigrants to this country exemplified
these distinctions. Many of them had been slives before
coming to America; a few had been men of authority.
A strangely tattooed negro woman who once lived in this
community claimed to have been a princess. To indicate
the contrasting tvpes, it is enough to say that near my
son's home are the ruins of a cabin In which a Guinea
cannibal onco lived, while a Wilmington, N. C, slave
who died a few years ago was found to be a good Arabic
scholar and could speak several tribal languages.
A Criminal Offense.
Indianapolis Journal
The run on the St. Louis banks shows how easily a
panic of that kind may be started. In this cise there Is
reason to believe It was started by idle and, perhaps,
malicious rumors from Chicago, originating, probably,
with stock manipulators. The banks and moneyed insti
tutions of St. Louis are conservatively managed, and as
little likely to get Into trouble as any In the country.
The run of Tuesday demonstrated their perfect solvency,
but It was a cause of groundless alarm to a great many
people. The whipping post would be none too severe a
punishment for a person who maliciously or recklessly
starts a false report regarding the solvency of a bank.
Ilia Own Devices.
Cincinnati Enquirer.
Congress is not enthusiastic on tho Cuban reciprocity

difficult to put In the time during the extraordinary ses

back away from his own device.

terday in the announcement of Miss Emllj
Co.ladaj's marriage to Mr. Albert W.
Zollinger, recently a California resident,
but lately engaged In business In Granite
City, 111, -which took place very quietly
on Tuesday in Chicago.
The bride has been visiting friends in
Chicago for several weeks. Her engage
ment had beer, known by friends, but no

that the marriage of Tuesday was dis
tinctly a surprise.

formerly Salllo Colladav, now lives In

Very few guests were present when the

veil of tulle, and carried pink roses in a
shower. The bride carried no fiov.crs dur
ing the ceremony, but later, at the recep

of the valley and roses to her costume.

Hawk on hough!
Sec tho creature stalking f -
Whllo we speak!
Hush and hide the talking.
Cheek on cheek. .,
What so false as truth Is,
False to thee?
Where the serpent's tooth is.
Shun the trao
Where the apple reddens.
Never pry
Lest we lose our Edcns,

Be a god, and hold mo
With a chirm!
Be a man, and fold mo
With thine arm!
leach ire, only teach. Love!
As I ought
I will speak thy speech, Love,
Think thy thought
Meet if thou require It,
Both demands.
Laying flesh and spirit
In thy hands.
That shall be to-morrow.
Not to-night;
I must bury sorrow ,
Out of sight:
Must a little weep, Love,
(Foolish me!)
And so fall asleep, Lov e.
Loved by thee.
