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
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
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

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

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.
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
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
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:

of ijcwisburg, - who Is well known
throughout the state hh a tuniber of

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

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

which he calls Paragon, and what-is
