It will surprise most people to read
that the jinrlkisha Is not a Japanese in
vention. It was the notion of an
American named Goble, who was cob
bler, peddler and missionary In Yokoha
ma, long ago. He was an honest and
good man, it is eaid, and designed the
Vehicle for his frequent travels In the
country, and the first one was made by
" a Japanese blacksmith "either in
Kawasaki or Fujisawa," writes an old
resident In the Kobe Chronicle. The
Japanese Immediately accepted the
Jinrlkisha, but it was long before the
foreigners took It up.
According to the Philadelphia Ledger,
George "W. Guthrie, the Democratic
candidate for lieutenant governor of
Pennsylvania, was asked the other day
if he could suggest a single logical issue
upon which William Jennings Bryan
might again come before the people as
a candidate for President. He replied
that Bryan never had but one issue,
and that his position was exactly that
of a negro fish peddler Mr. Guthrie once
encountered In Pittsburg. The peddler
was urging his horse along with cruel
blows from a heavy stick, andTall the
time crying at the top of his voice,
"Herein! Her-rin'! Get yo fresh her
rin'J" Mr. Guthrie, wishing to save the
horae, stopped the peddler and asked,
J'Have you no1 mercy, fellow?" "Nope!"
-was the reply, "nothln" 'cept herrin'!"

. When the excursion train from Paris
filled with negroes, bound for the camp
meeting, reached this city, says the
Louisville Courier-Journal, it passed the
station and went through Cynthiana at
a .rate of about twenty-five miles an
hour, the idea being to keep the crowd
on board until the arrival at the
grounds at the Falmouth Pike crossing.
Just before reaching Pike street a negro
man Jumped from the train. Of course,
the momentum of the cars carried him
along at a terrific pace. His body was
going so fast that his legs could not
possibly keep up, but they made a val
iant effort to do so, and such a lickety-
1 split a negro never cut before. He gal
loped across the gutter at Pike street
at a tremendous speed, barely missed a
telephone pole, flew up into the air,
turned a couple of somersaults, and
, landed all in a heap in the middle, of the
street. His eyes were as big as saucers
and seemed to pop out. As he slowly
' gathered himself together his trousers
were spilt, his knees were bruised and
bleeding, his arms were wrenched, his
coattails were in tatters, and his batter
ed stiff hat was mashed down right over
: his ears. At that moment a negro girl
who knew him came along. "Why, how
do you do, Mr. Hopkins?" she exclaim
ed. "Why, how do you do?" he an-
swered, in deep, calm notes, with care
fully measured accent "How do you
do? You are looking quite we-we-well.
I Just stepped off the train to meet
A BlT.l, BVSKAMt-ltEATrn.
There are many "new women" in
Kansas and some new men. One of the
new men has Just applied to the courts
for release from his wife, who has been
treating him with intolerable cruelty.
In his petition he tells how his wife
was wont to become enraged and swear
at him and then strike him with her
brutal fists. Patiently he bore with
these bursts of temper, hoping against
hope that she would do better in the
future, but the outbreaks became more
frequent, the blows fell oftener with
preater fierceness, his tears and pa
tience grew less effective, and at last
he fled in terror and took refuge in the
borne of his parents.
An example should be made of this
Kansas husband-beater. When a gen
tle, trusting man marries a woman he
gives up much for her sake, and he is
entitled to be loved and cherished.
When Instead of love and kindness
cuffs and kicks are his portion the law
should step in and show the brutal wife
that there is a limit to the sufferings a
husband Is obliged to endure.
When Senator Piatt of New York
talks he is apt to say something. This
is what he says about the action of the
New York Republicans at their State
convention next month: The platform
which will be adopted by the State con
vention next month will contain a very
warm Indorsement of the administra
tion of President Roosevelt, but it will
not declare for his renominatlon In 1904.
The platform will contain a plank on
the subject of trusts, but at this time
it is impossible to say how this will be
worded. No one knows how far the
platform will go on this subject, but
the matter Is receiving the considera
tion that its importance deserves. I
cannot say that the platform will go as
far on this subject as the President has
gone in the speeches he has been mak
ing In New England.
When it is remembered that the Re
publicans of Pennsylvania, Iowa. Kan
sas, and other States where conventions
have been held have declared for the
reriomlnation bf President Roosevelt
the significance of Boss Piatt's remark
that New York wfll not do it is very
The contribution of U. M. Rose, pres
ident of the American Bar Association,
to the trust discussion is as Interesting
and perhaps as important as any that
haa been made. He isn't as hopeful
about the situation as some are, but
perhaps that is because he knows more
about it than some do. Mr. Rose re
views the history of monopolies-since
before the days of Pharaoh. He shows
that for the fifty monopolies which op
pressed the people under Queen Eliza
beth we have "more than 4,000, to say
nothing of price and rate fixing and
profit sharing pools, all organized for
the purpose of fixing prices arbitrarily."
He recalls that the Greek, the Roman
and the English common law all prohib
ited monopolies, in spite of which mo
nopolies existed. He points out that the
most drastic state legislation in this
country instancing that of South Car
olina, which Is fiercer, if anything, than
the laws of Missouri and Texas has
been powerless to curb the trusts. He
discusses President Roosevelt's propos
ed remedy of publicity and doubts its
effectiveness, because the science of
"flexible bookkeeping" has gone so far
that reports of the corporations would
not reveal things which the managers
wished to keep secret. The proposition
to amend the Constitution Mr. Rose re
gards as "a very drastic remedy indeed,
one that would greatly strengthen the
lobby, one that might introduce an era
of political corruption hitherto un
known." Tariff reduction, Mr. Rose
thinks, would have an excellent effect
in limiting the control of prices by those
trusts whose wares it affected, although
the relief wfould necessarily be partial.
If the trusts need restraint, and if
there isn't ' a strong probability that
they can be adequately dealt with by
law, where are we?

The evidence Is increasing that there
Is business in the negro, and that the
negro is in business. The meeting of
the National Negro Business League at
Richmond, Virginia, last week was
very encouraging to those who believe
that the negro has soul enough In him
to do business successfully. Some very
interesting stories of business effort
and success were told by members of
the League. For Instance, that of A. C.
Howard, a young colored man who not
many years ago was running as. a por
ter in a Pullman car out of Chicago. Of
an inventive turn of mind, he began to
experiment in the making of shoe
blacking, succeeding in a year or so in
producing a satisfactory article. The
porter went on running, and in his lay-
offs in Chicago made blacking and sold
it until he had saved $180. With this as
a capital he embarked in business life
as a manufacturer of shoe-polish. That
was less than six years ago. Now it
takes three teams to supply the trade
In Chicago alone with his shoe-polish.
Last year a Mexican firm placed an an
nual contract for six hundred gross of
It, and a New York firm has Just order
ed two hundred and fifty gross for for
eign shipment.
Mr. Howard and sixteen other negro
business men who went to Richmond
from Chicago were not troubled by the
color line. They went in a special Pull
man car chartered by them for the trip,
and as there is a good negro hotel in
Richmond they had no difficulty In find
ing hotel accommodation there.

Chicago News.
A Georgia hostess, entertaining a
large party of her guests in her planta
tion home, expected an English lord on
a night train. While her Jet black
"George Washington" served her Amer
ican guests admirably, he had had no
experience with English titles.
Therefore, considering a little instruc
tion necessary, Mrs. G proceeded to
give it, as follows:
"George, Lord C will be here for
breakfast in the morning, and you must
pass your tray to him first, and say,
'My Lord, will you have so and so?' "
After going through the formula sev
eral times George was dismissed, look
ing more than usually self-important.
When breakfast was announced
George was In his place, his face shin
ing like polished ebony and his eyes like
full moons. When the guests were seat
ed George hesitated a moment, then
made a dash at the guest of honor with
his tray, and burst out:
"Good God A'mighty, will you hab
some o' dis?" Current Literature.
Death of the Leader of a Powerful Reli
gious and Military Fraternity.
The death of the Sheikh Mohammed
es-Senussi is an event of some impor
tance. Senussi was the acknowledged
head of a powerful semi-religious, semi
mllitary confraternity, whose head
quarters were In the Borku oasis of the
Sahara, but whose influence extended
from Morocca te Mecca and from Lake
Chad to Darfur. The founder of the
sect, who preached a return to the
"primitive doctrines" of the Koran, was
Mohammed Sidi, father of the Sheikh
whose death is now announced. Mo
phet, through Fatma, gained a great
reputation in Fez, some seventy years
ago for canctity. He performed the pil
grimage to Mecca and afterwards
founded a convent at Alexandria. His
doctrines not finding favor with the
Sheikh ul-Islam, Mohammed Sidi re
tired to the Libyan Desert. At first he
settled near Bengazi, in the peninsula
of Barea, afterwards removing to Jera
bub, near the oasis bf Slwa. At Jera
bub he gathered together a large fol
lowing, and when he died, in or about
1860, the Senussi organization was firm
ly established. His son, who cherished
bitterly anti-Christian feelings, had
largely extended the power of the
brotherhood, which now has converts
scattered all over North Africa. Dur
ing the seventies he removed into the
Sahara to the oasis of Kufra and en
tirely closed the desert to European
travelers. He acquired a predominant
influence over the ancient Sultanate of
Wadai, which he prevented from falling
under the sway of Mohamet Ahmed, the
Suran Mahdi. With the Mahdi's move
ment Senussi would have nothing to do,
and he contemptuously rejected Mo
hamet Ahmed's offer to make him
(Senussi) one of his khalifas, or lieu
tenants. About the time of the Fashoda crisis
the Senussi Sheikh made an important
movement southwest into the Tripoli
hinterland. When, in March, 1S99, the
Anglo-French agreement defining our
respective spheres of action In North
Central Africa was made, it was found
that tha Senussi country lay entirely
within the French sphere. For a time
the campaign against Rabeh kept th
French fully engaged , but last year the
forces of the French and the Senussi
came into conflict in Kanem, the king
dom in which the Senussi is reported to
have died. For many years the follow
ers of the Senussi had spoken of their
Sheikh as El Mahdi "the guided one,"
who is expected to complete the work
left unfinished by the Prophet and
from the reports which have reached
France of the fighting in Kanem it
would appear that the Senussists have
proclaimed a "holy war." It Is, how
ever, impossible as yet to estimate the
strength of tha Senussi army, or wheth
er the brotherhood intends at this time
seriously to challenge the advance of
the French. At present, the Colonial
ministry in Paris has given orders for
all aggressive military movements to
ceaes. Judging from past experience it
might be expected that the Senussi
would remain quiescent If left alone.
They have, however, largely extended
their influence westward during the
past two years, Kanem, which lies
northeast of Lake Chad, belncr the last
country to fall under their sway. In
1S9!, when Kanem was traversed by the
Foureau-Lamy and Joilland missions, it
was free from Senuissism. Since then
Mohammed es-Senussi and the Sultan
of Wadal have placed themselves In
closer relations with the Sultan of Tur
key, and through the vilayet of Tripoli
there exists a safe and easy means of
communication and of Importing war
like stores. If the new head of the
brotherhood who will be either a son
or brother of the Sheikh Just deceased
were to choose to begin an active cam
paign he would not lack for men, mon
ey or munitions and the Arabs of the
Sahara are among the finest fighters In
the world. Not only would the French
position on Lake Chad be threatened,
hammed Sidi, a descendant of the Pro
but aalso It might be found that the
newly established British posts In Bor
nu would be in danger. Indeed, the
whole of North Africa might be In
volved in the conflict. Nothing Is
known of the personality of the Senussi
leaders, and this ignorance greatly adds
to the perplexity of the situation. Lon
