ADDRESS DELIVERED BY HON.
CHARLES EMORY SMITH
Before the Ynle Law School Political
Club at Henaie Hnll Last Night
Distinguished Scholar Tells What
We Need to Gain Commercial Su
premacy and Other Interesting;
The following Is an abstract of the
address delivered before the'' members
of the Tale Law School political club
last night by the Hon. Charles Emory
Bmith of Philadelphia:
"Constant expansion has been a dis
tinguishing feature of American
growth. All the movements have been)
In the line of natural development.
Our earlier expansions were contigu
ous and cotermlnal. "We had to arch
the continent and fill the space be
tween the seas. We had to have the
wile continental base for, a great pow
er. Our lotest expansions have been
transmarine, and they have been just
as opportune as the others. In the
earlier days we needed room. At the
present time we need commerce.
Then we wanted, land for material
growth. Now we want the sea and the
sea-footholds for commercial commu
nication. Then We required the broad
arcl solid foundation on which we could
build the agricultural and industrial
supremacy to which we were destined.
Nok we require the outposts along the
lines of commercial outlets for the sur
plus of a producing power which sur
passes anything the world has ever
eenand which should lead at no dis-
Jtant day to a commercial supremacy
.as distinct and undisputed as our as
cendancy in agriculture and industry.
As to the acquisitions which came with
the Spanish war we can all agree at
least that they were unforeseen and
unintended. Whether they could hon
orably have been avoided I do not now
propose to discuss. My present pur
pose is to consider where they have
pleased us as a nation and whether the
moral and material gains are not im
measurably greater than all the cost
and trouble. This point will best be il
lustrated by taking a great world
chapter and measuring our American
relations to it at two different dates.
We all vivMly remember the violent
Boxer outbreak in China. It a
momentous contest between civilization!
and barbarism. It carried with it a
tremendous Import as to the desainy of
China and as to its moral and political
aspects and l'ts trade possibilities in the
future. Had that vital chapter come
in 1897 the United States would have
played no part in It. Kngland, France,
Germany, Russia and Japan would
have furnished the allied forces for the
subjugation of the uprising and
would have decided all the questions
which grew out of the conflict, and the
United States wouB have exercised no
more 'voice in their determination than
did Belgium or Holland. But the chap
ter came In 1900, instead of 1897, and
the United States, instead of looking
on in helpless horror, played a great
and lea'llng part in the stupendous
drama. Our troops were among the
first to reach the Chinese capital and
raise the lurid embargo. Our counsels
were controlling In shaping the settle
ment. It was the United States that
prevented the outbreak from becoming
a general war by Insisting that It
Says I to myself
says I they
should be treated only as a revolt, and
thus keeping off the hands of the pow
erful southern viceroys. It was the
United States that enforce! moderation
in the adjustment and brought all the
(powers to accept a reasonable indemni
ty. At every point the voice of the
United States was heard and its influ
ence was potential. We went into
China because we had already gone
into the Philippines. We were thera
by right and we were there with force.
We went in when the Chinese house
was set on fire because we had a house
next 'door. The whole movement was
a logical development. We had to have
world interests before we could become
a world power. We had to be a world
power before we could sit at the
world's council table. We had to sit at
the world's council table before we
could become the world's peacemaker,
as we have largely become."
Mr. Smith then pointed out how the
United States is now a world power in
Its broad relations and in the councils
with other governments as distin
guished from the position it held before
these relations, and then proceeded:
"Consider some of the results already
achieved. We know that in the nego
tiations of the powers during and fol
lowing the Chinese outbreak the United
States gained the position of the best
friend of China. We know that China
came to feel under greater obligations
to us than to any other nation. I be
lieve it Is within the bounds of truth to
say that the attitude and action of the
United States prevented the dismem
berment of the ancient empire, at that
Juncture. Some of the great powers of
Europe were disposed towards the par
tition. But the United States stood as
the great obstacle. The United States,
with all the prestige of its new position
in the east and In l'ts new power in the
worl'J, and in the masterly, diplomacy
of Secretary Hay, clearly and firmly
declared that the integrity of the Chi
nese empire must 'be maintained, and
through its unselfish spirit, its moral
influence and its lofty representation,
It stayed and stopped the threatened!
division. When the . United States
stopped that division and Insisted on
the open door, it kept the growing and
incalculable trade of China for the
world's free competition. It saved anj
equal chance for Americans and an
equal chance is all that Americans ask.
Even the very demand for the open
door wag made possible only by our
new position in the east. 'The moral
position of the United States, strength
ened by its physical presence and pow
er in the east, brought success where
others had failed. I do not know
whether the open door can always be
kept open the new power and ambi
tions of Japan have "brought new ele
ments Into play but I do know that Its
opening hinged on our successful de
monstration in the Orient. Thus the
saving of China from dismemberment,
'the open 'door and all our vastly In
creased prestige and Influence in the
east, with our augmented power of
preserving the peace and equipoise of
the nations, are the direct fruits of our
expansion 'in the Philippines, and no
man can estimate the advantages."
As to the immediate results in the
Philippines, Mr. Smith said:
"We have given the Filipinos a de
gree of personal protection and securi
ty which they have never enjoyed be
fore. We have Rescued them from the
pestilent system, of administrative cor
ruption and exactions which had op
pressed them throughout their history.
We have largely destroyed the native
brigandage under which they had suf
fered for four hundred years. We are
training half a million children in pri
mary and industrial education, and
more people now speak English than
Spanish. We are building a thousand)
miles of railway where only one hun
dred and twenty existed under Spanish
rule. We are making hundreds of
miles of good wagon roads all over the
islands. We have established a system
o courts where Justice is administered
and legal protection is guaranteed. We
have organized autonomous municipal
ities and provincial governments an'3
have Just called a national assembly
which is to carry the peoplo still far
ther in the art of self-government.
We have opened new lands, driven out
pestilence, ' established hospitals, or
dained a practical civil service In
which the Filipinos chiefly share, and
have made their daily lot of life im
measurably better than they had ever
dreamed of under any preceding rule.
After the lecture a banquet was held
at the Union league as a reception to
Hon. Charles Emory Smith. A very fine
dinner was served and the large attend
ance of business men and other Invit
ed guests enjoyed a very pleasant even
ing. The guests left shortly after mid
night. This morning Mr. Smith will be
shown around the university buildings
previous to his leaving for his home.
He Will leave at 12 o'clock this noon.

When the disagreement of the jury
was announced in court Thaw turned
even paler then he has been for the
past several days, and when he was re

suggestion of District Attorney Jerome
tie hung his head dejectedly.
Up to the very last Thaw had hoped
that the twelve men would firmly agree
upon a verdict of not guilty.
It was 4:20 p. m. when Justice Fitz
gerald sent court messengers to sum
mon District Attorney Jerome and
counsel for the defendant. Three min
utes later he ordered the jury to report
before him in the court room. The
jury filed into the court room at 4:25.
Ttiere was considerable delay waiting
for Mr. Jerome, who had left the build
ing. Thaw was brought before the
jury at 4:29. . He entered as smiling
and confident as ever. When he had
taken his seat, however, and noticed
that none of tiie members of his family
was in the room, he began to get ner
vous and anxious. In a few seconds,
however, his wife appeared and after
smiling a greeting to him she was mak
ing her way to her accustomed place,
when Thaw caught her by the sleeve
and beckoned her into the unoccupied
chair beside him. He put his right
arm around her waist. The other mem

As soon as the latter arrived Justice
Fitzgerald took his place on the bench
and Clerk Penny began to call toe roll
of the jury. When this was over he
turned to Thaw and in a loud voice
"The defendant will rise."
Then for the first time those in the
court room knew that the end of the
famous trial wa3 at hand.
Clerk Penny turned next to the jury
box and said:.
"Tue jury will rise."
Then he went on:
"Defendant, look upon , the jurors;

"We have not," quickly responded

grasped her husband's hand. Thaw sat
down limply beside her. She whisper

told him she believed, from what coun

chance of his being liberated on bail.
Justice Fitzgerald, turning to tiie
Jurors1; said: ,' '.
"Gentlemen of the jury, I have deem
ed it my duty to keep you here as long
as there was a possibility of your
reaching a verdict.. I have arrived at
the conclusion that it will be impossi

with counsel or the defendant and the
learned district attorney, and I am go

sideration of the case, Uie public pros
ecutor and counsel for the defendant

Justice Fitzgerald called upon Dis
trict Attorney Jerome and Messrs.. Dan
iel O'Reilly and Clifford Hartrldge, of
Thaw's counsel, to arise, and formally
enter their consent.
Then Mr. Jerome spoke.
"I will ask,'' he said, "that the de

Mr. Jerome later' said that the ad

to do, with the Thaw case.
The district attorney also stated that
ho considered it would be his duty to
put Thaw on trial agnln.
"There are thirty-four homicide cases

A very largely attended meeting of
the Police Mutual Aid association was
held yesterday afternoon and the mat
ter of increased pay was taken up and
thoroughly discussed. It was decided
to appoint a committee of five members
consisting of an officer from- each sta
tlon and the detective bureau. The
men on the committee are Sergeant
Watrous of station 3, Detective. James
Wnrd, Officer Tlernan of station 1, Of
ficer J. H. Moore of station 2, and Offi
cer J. T. McGrath of station 4.

uniform which the men must w ear has
gone up nearly 20 per cent.

WHERE BIRDS SLEEP IN WINTER
In zero weather, wiien the night is
pitch dark and there is a piercing wind
driving a biting snow, perhaps you
have wondered, as I have, to think
how the little wild birds could man
age to sleep and not freeze, nor ba
covered up with the snow. .;
One stormy winter night, while
walking through Central Park, New
.York City. I partly answered toe ques
tion. A branch of a large pine tree
swung close to, and a little above a
street lamp. The branch and its twigs
were quite free from snow, the dense
leaves or "needles" forming a rooC
above them and catching the snow
which had quickly filled up the spaces
between the slender leaves. Here and
there under the most cosy-looking of
leaf clusters was a little group of Eng
lish sparrows looking as comfortable
as could be. Tie were somewhat dis
turbed by my pausing to watch them,
and a few left to find a perch on some
higher branch. Probably there wera
scores of these sparrow in this tree,
for I was able to examine only the
branch near the light. Who know but
that every pine in (he park, and many
a one in the woods as well, is a -very
tenement for the birds? St. Nicholas.
