While it is well for the government to 'continue its programme of building up a great navy of bat AT THE tleshlps, it is neverthe- BOTTOM OF less possible that within THE SEA. a few years the battle ship will be a helpless monster when attacked by the subma rine torpedo boat. The great progress made in the construction of boats for operation under water makes it inter esting to speculate as to what would be the1 outcome of another situation similar to that which confronted the American navy at Santiago. Admiral Cervera's fleet was In the harbor, bot tled up like a rat in a trap. Had Samp son possessed such a boat as the Fulton, it is probable that he could have sent it into the harbor and blown up the Spanish ships, one after an other, without any danger to the attacking force. The performance of the Fulton in New York waters a few days ago, brief mention of which was made in The Republican's dispatches, has caused the world to wonder whether it is facing another revolution in naval warfare more radical than that which was ushered in by Erics son's ironclad Monitor. The New York Commercial Advertiser, commenting upon the trial of the Fulton, says: The experiment made with the sub marine torpedo boat Fulton on Satur day night must have been exceedingly gratifying to her builders. With six men in her, including Hear-Admiral John Lowe, the Fulton lay all Satur day night on the bottom of Peconic bay, undisturbed by the gale raging abo'e. The time of submergence was fifteen hours. but the significance of the test is in the fact that If there had been food enough for the men the boat might have remained for a week under water in perfect safety. In fact, the time of submergence Is limited only by the food supply. Such are the state ments which appear in this morning's papers, and which the lay mind will be disposed to accept, subject to the cor rection of experts, who may possibly put a less optimistic Interpretation upon them. There is no dispute, how ever, as to the facts., which prove clearly that the Holland submarine boat has made a distinct advance to ward that efficiency as a weapon of naval warfare which Is claimed by the inventor. The test was made to prove that the air supply in boats of this type is sufficient to enable the crews to remain in comfort under water for a practically Indefinite period. It will be interesting to note the verdict of experts as to what remains to be done before a boat like the Ful ton can be regarded as deadly In naval warfare. The Fulton can sink herself, find her way about presumably at any depth and rise to the surface; but what is her efficiency against an enemy's battleship armed with searchlights? How near must she be to the surface to find out the point of attack and dis charge her torpedoes safely? There Is no answer yet to these questions be- ! yond the assurances of those whose opinions are interested, but enough has been done to warrant expectation of Improvements in the boat that may change the whole character of naval I warfare. Very rough weather may, as I a naval officer remarked after the test. supply conditions during which the most powerful searchlight might be unable to detect the approach of such a boat in time to sink it, and In such cases we may already possess a sub marine weapon that could turn a whole fleet of battleships into junk in a few minutes. ., . . , At all events, the submarine torpedo boat is now recognized as a permanent addition to the navies of the world, and in the near future invention will be at high pressure to secure the most ser viceable type. It is gratifying to know that the test made on Saturday is de clared to have surpassed all previous records In some respects. The French and the British naval authorities are fully awake to the advantages which an efficient submarine torpedo boat could give, and already speculations are being- made as to the effect of the possession of a fleet of these craft in supplying the deficiencies in other ves sels of a great navy. That the current estimates as to the relative value of battleships, cruisers and torpedo boat destroyers may need to be revised is quite probable, and In doing so the new submarine boat may be the chief factor. . , In the meantime theorists and rnlcu lators like M.. Bloch may nvlutge in gratifying forecasts as to the effect of u-h new weapons upon the develop ment, or rather the effacement, of naval warfare between civilized na tions. They have reduced land war- : fare to a nullity already, and if the deadliness of the submarine boat be at all what Its promoters declare, there will be abundant material for recasting the destinies of -nations in the light of a new discovery as potent in its way as the magazine rifle behind entrench ments. The Los Angeles Express says these good words of Arizona: Wholesale merchants ARIZONA In this city all agree IS PROS- . . in saying that the state PEKOrS. of their trade with Ari zona Is very prosiN'rous and decidedly on the increase. , A large dealer in groceries is authority for the assertion that the principal towns and mining; camps of the territory this uuiumn are ouying iu per cent more goods in his line than they did last year. And an extensive dealer in sad dlery, hardware and leather commodi ties has been heard to say that Arizona orders received by his house during October and so far In November exceed those filled in the corresponding months of last year in the ratio of seven to one, both in number and quan tity. The collections, too. are most satisfactory. This presents a very en couraging condition of things to all the jobbers in this city, who unitedly, and with good reason, regard Arizona um their own territory for the purposes of trade. Turning from these evidences of the prosperity of Arizona to the summary of Governor Murphy's report to the secretary of the interior, contained in the secretary's report to the president, ample proof is found that this territory has more to show for itself than have many of the states in realized wealth and general growth. The assessed val uation of property has increased nearly 56,000,000 during the year. The population is estimated at fully 135,000. This estimate exceeds the probable results of the late census, but the fault is chargeable to the enumera tors, as is made clear by the proved injustice they did to a number of I towns, and in particular to Phoenix in pncing the populaUon at 6j614 The enumeration was made In the summer. when a large proportion of the inhabi tants were in California. It also is true that a large part of the town is not Included within the city limits. The city election In May, 1901, was held on a registry of 2,317 voters, indl eating a population of 10,000 or more. The school census bears out the same conclusion. The government census is said to have returned a population of 92,903, in which there are found 2.3l5 persons of foreign birth. Governor Murphy objects to these being classed ..mostly as Mexicans, and says that the mining districts contain a large num ber of Irish and Cornish del vers, and that there Is a fair representation from Sweden. Germany and Italy, Here is an important Hem tn the gov ernor s report: "The quality of Ari zona citizenship is of the highest char acter; the population is typically American, and the percentage of illit eracy Is smaller than in any state in the union. The public school system is liberal and comprehensive, and educa tion is free throughout all the grades to and including the university." Here follow a number of interesting par ticulars. There are 23,503 children of school age in the territory, an increase of 2.670 since 100. There are 270 school districts, an increase of twenty-three for the year. Within the last twelve months new school houses in the num ber of eighteen have been constructed. mere are st teachers employed, an increase of forty-one for the year. Of the total number of teachers 315 are women. The average remuneration for male teachers is $H0.61 a month; for women teachers, $64.80. The total value of school buildings and furniture Is $553,181. Tha total bonded debt for school purposes is SJ57.787. The terri torial university is well Attended and has an excellent faculty. There are two normal schools for the training of teachers, where the requirements for graduation are high and rigid. The total of the state debt is but a little more than a million dollars, incurred largely by the building of the capltol. The assessed valuation of the taxable property is $38,853,831.37. But Governor Murphy complains that a vast amount of personal property escapes taxation, owing to faulty methods of assessment; "that by reason of the custom of as sessing at a nominal valuation produc ing mines which are worth many mil lions of dollars, as well as on account of the uniformly low valuations placed upon many classes of property by the county assessors, the total assessed valuation falls far short of the actual value of the property which Is subject to taxation." He cites instances where single mines are worth as much as the assessed value of all the property in the territory. Besides, there are 506 miles of railroad exempt from taxation under special territorial enactments for a term of years. One of the tricks of Gorman's lieu tenants in Maryland was most success ful In Talbot county, on the eastern shore. The county was very close. The republican managers had Instructed the negro voters to mark their ballots "in front of Massa Lincoln's nose," the face of Lincoln being the party emb lem. The democratic emblem was a figure of Jackson and Liberty. The democrats had control of the election machinery and the printing of the bal lots. hen the official sample ballots were published net one republican in the county, for some strange reason, noticed that Lincoln's head in the re publican emblem was turned to the left Instead of to the right, as had always been 'the custom. The result was nat urally that all the illiterate negroes who voted "in front of Lincoln's nose" marked their crosses to the right of "Jackson and Liberty," thereby voting the straight democratic ticket. The fraud was detected about 11 a. m., but already more than 200 negro votes had been wrongly marked and cast. General Shelley of Alabama, demo crat and ex-confederate, says that the white men of the state who voted against the new constitution will put up nominees of their own for every offiVe "from governor to constable." They will hold a state convention next year, he says," and hold it early. Th? Montgomery Advertiser sees In this merely a new edition of the "Jefferson democrary" schism of the Hcuben Kolfcltes of 1892. It accuses General Shelley of wanting and scheming to "build up a formidable, permanent white opposition to the democratic or ganization." It predict?; that he and his associates. will ultimately rcorKan ize 'and head the republican party of Alabama. One feature of the senate during the coming session of congress will be that it will be divided, politically, between republicans and democrats. There will be no such designation an populist" or "silver republican" or "silver demo crat." Senators lieitfvld and lubuis. the first a populist, the second a silver 1 republican and at one time secretary of the republican caucus, will both act with the 1 democrats. Senators Jones and Stewart of Nevada, who were classed as populists during the silver agitation, have both rejoined the re publican ranks. Senator Teller, a life long republican and once member of a republican cabinet, has gone clear over to the democrats, as has Senator Har ris, the Kansas populist. Senator Du bois is a Yale man, and has already despite his new party affiliations, es tablished pleasant personal relations with the president on the collegiate basis. The impossibility of monopolizing the vast industry of iron and steel In this country is again illustrated in the movement for consolidating several strong concerns outside of the United States Steel corporation. The evident purpose is to strengthen competition by bringing together the various interests that overlap each other In the several fields of activity between the getting out of ore and other materials and the output of finished articles, and thereby to acquire the same advantage that the larger corporation now holds. Even when this is done there will be many Independent establishments and great possibilities still undeveloped. There is a limit to single control which no one will be venturesome enough to try to pass, and iron and steel can no more be monopolized in this country than agriculture, though the industry can be systematized on a vast scale. "Our Dumb Animals" tells this story: "W. W. Hall, a young farmer near Montpeller, enjoyed himself hugely a few days back in watching a couple of city girls attempt to water their horse at the trough at his place. The horse was checked up, and of course could not get his nose down to the water. This seemed to surprise the young wo men at first, but finally, realizing the trouble, they both got out of the buggy and going behind lifted up the hind axle, and, after raising the hind wheels clear of the ground, peeped around the sides of the vehicle to see the horse drink. Finding that the horse didn't seem to know enough to stick his head down at the same time liiey raised the hind wheels, one girl remained behind to hold the buggy up and the other went to the horse's head and tried to pull his note down to the water. Aftr laughing. Hall went to their assist ance and unchecked the horse." The establishment of a women's uni versity club house in New York is an excellent illustration of the new activi ties of the sex. One of its promoters describes its advantages as being: "First, that it gives a meeting place, for the alumnae associations of the city where no card of entertainment or re freshment falls heavily upon some kind hearted hostess, us it Inevitably did under the old regime; second, that it brings about a desirable community of feeling and interest among college women; third, that it makes a pleasant center for visiting alumnae and their friends; fourth, that its cheeriness and homelikeness and social possibilities are inestimable benefits for the army of cellege girls who come to New York to study or work, without acquaintances or friends and with no home but some dreary boarding house. The Fifty-seventh congress convenes at noon today, but it is not probable that any business will be transacted. Jt is expected that in the senate Sen ator Hanna. and in the house Ueneral Grosvenor. will formally announce the death of President McKinley, and in honor of the memory of the martyred president both houses will adjourn until noon tomorrow, when President Roosevelt's first annual message will be read. OX ACCOUNT OF SICKNESS. The torn and tattered remnant of a confederate regiment one day toward the close of the war was lined up by Its colonel and told that the command- ng general was to pay a "visit of In spection" on the following day. The soldiers were admonished to "do their prettiest." J ust brace up as though your clothes were brand new uniforms and as though you had the best on earth to eat and plenty of It. We haven't any bugles left, but Smith there has got a drum, and it's a plumb fine one big as a barrel. Now, Smith, when I give you the word tomorrow you let her go for all she's worth." Thus spoke the colonel. The next day came the general to 'inspect" the poor, half starved fight ers, and as he appeared In the dlHtance the colonel gave the order to "line up." As the commanding officer drew near, the colonel shouted. "Now. Smith, let her go!" and turned to salute the gen eral. But not a note came from the big barrel drum. The colonel, red in the face, turned toward the drummer and again shout ed his order for music. Hut still the drum remained as mute as the harp of Tara's Hall fame. . Infuriated t this open disobedIane of orders, and In the presence of his commanding officer, too, the colonel rode down the line, and as he reached the refractory drummer, cried out: "Say, Smith, what in and do you mean by not beating that blankcty blank drum?" "I can't, colonel." whispered Smith. "The old drum is full of chickens, and hslf of 'em are for you." The colonel paused but a moment be fore he shouted so that the general and the soldiers might hear: "AM right. Smith, but if you were too sick to play the drum, why In and didn't you say so?"

What can be done with the waste land which has been stripped of Its timber and is unsuited for agriculture? Left alone. It will soon be covered by o second growth of inferior timber, which is more than likely to he?' de stroyed by me. Mr. Coleman K. Sober of ijcwisburg, - who Is well known throughout the state hh a tuniber of the hoard of gume commissioners, lias demonstrnted that there is a way to turn these forbidding waste lands to good account by growing chestnut trees upon them. The soil and climate of Pennsylvania Is very favorable to the American chestnut. It grows everywhere, and is especially luxuriant and dominating as second growth timber. The sweet little native chestnut is much beloved by small boys, but it has not the commer cial value of the larger European chest nut, which is an important food staple in Spain, Italy, Switzerland and Ger many.. Mr. Sober has planted his waste land with chestnut trees and grafted on them scions. of a larger chestnut, which he calls Paragon, and what-is probably an improve! descendant of the Spanish chestnut.
