PHOENIX, ARIZONA, MARCH 9, IS03. ' Women at Washington. It is not exactly clear why, within the last year or two, the department and bureau chiefs at . Washington should have concluded that women are not desirable as government employe?. The general impression has been that for routine clerical work women have proved themselves to be the equals, if not the superiors, of the average male clerk. It Is a fact, however, that there is a decided preference for men in most of the departments. In the pension bureau, .especially, women are unpop ular, and a recent dispatch from Wash ington announces that if Commissioner Ware and his successors continue the policy of Henry Clay Evans, the pen sion office will soon be an Eveles.s Eden. For six years, not a woman has been selected from the civil service list of eligibles for a position in the pen sion office. The head of the office has constantly made requisitions on the civil service commissioner for certifica tions of men. Deaths, resignations and discharges have made places for many stenographers and copyists, but women have not been considered for the va cancies. Three hundred and fifty women are now employed in the pension office. Twenty of these are charwomen. Tho number of male employes is 1.3S8. The civil service commissioners are com pelled by law to certify men to appoint ing officers in case they make such a request. Consequently, the commis sioner of pensions or the chief of any other bureau may' bar women regard less of what their standing in examina tions may have been. It is explained that frequently women who have higher grades than men cannot be cer tified to a chief on account of the notice ! that only men are desired. Not long! ago the commissioners called the atten- i tion of the chiefs of bureaus to the fact I that men whose grades were down in the 70s were securing appointments asj stenographers while the eligible lists of the commissioners bore the names of women who had secured marks of 90 or more in the stenographic examina tions. .The geological survey and the gen eral land office share the pension office aversion to women. Only a few have secured appointments in these bureaus as stenographers. But there are ex ceptions to the prevailing rule, and this dislike of women does not extend to all branches of the department of the in terior. The patent office prefers women typewriters and seldom employs men for work which is suited to women. Women, it is stated, persist in tak ing the civil service examinations, de spite the fact that they . are not suc cessful, in securing places. In 1902, twenty-seven women typewriters and stenographers were appointed, while 114 men secured similar positions. The grand . total of women appointed through the civil service commission was large, but most of the women were employed as printer's assistants, with salaries of $1.25 a day. German Professors on the American Policy. About : the most unpopular thing in Germany just now is the Monroe doc trine. "The Monroe doctrine is an empty pretension,, behind which is neither energetic will nor actual power." Thus Professor Adolf Wag ner, the celebrated political economist of Berlin university, begins his reply to -two questions submitted by a cor respondent whether the Monroe doc trine was in a moral sense as binding as international law, and what action seems dictated first in the interest of the German people and then in the in terest of the European nations. "Scarcely could such a doctrine be forced upon a conquered people after extraordinary victories," continues the professor. "No people and no great ruler ever proclaimed such a doctrine. Neither England nor Russia, nor Na poleon at the height of his power ever made a similar pretension. But not even the United States' predominant in terests are behind this unheard of as sumption. South America is neither geographically nor historically so allied with North America and the United States as to justify such a pretension, even from a North American point of view." Answering the second question. Pro fessor Wagner says: "It is only the divisions of European politics and lack of insight and recog nition of the solidarity of the interests of . middle, western and southern Eu rope, which - hitherto have been and will remain the chief seats of human civilization, that explains why Europe, why Germany even, takes this empty pretension into consideration, for every European country's practical, political course, will naturally depend solely upon Its interests, and accordingly upon considerations of strength. There fore, any binding engagement in ad vance regarding this pretentious doc trine of union appears to be a wrong policy. "From the point of view, too, of the wider Germanic races a simple recogni tion of the Monroe doctrine would be a false step, even if it were settling the world question whether the Germanic or Romanic elements should dominate the world. As a member of the Ger manic race I do not want to see the Romanic element pressed to the wall, because it is indispensable to the world's civilization and is a necessary complement to Germanic culture. This applies to Italy and France, and even to Spain. What do we Germans owe to them? What would our civilization be without Italy and without France? They are as indispensable to use as the classic peoples were. No objective member of the Germanic race can wish to see the world exclusively Germanic, but if we once concede the United States' predominance in South Amer ica, according to the Monroe preten sions, would German interests be pro moted thereby? Would not we Ger mans be completely pressed to the wall by the English element on both sides of the sea? We really have no Interest in furthering the preponderance of the United States or England, or both. Tho world's civilization would hardly be advanced thereby. Aside from some technical and business spheres what have the United States yet done of im portance for the real civilization of the world? What have they done that hns deserved to be named in the same breath with the achievements of Italy, and France? Middle, western and southern Europeans, hold yourselves together against the east as well as the far west. That seems to me to be the only right answer to the Monroe pre tensions. The Germanic people should not act against but should act with the Romanic peoples. That would serve the true interests of the civilization or the world." Professor Eduard von Hartmann, the philosopher, declined to discuss the question, because, he said, it was "in expedient, since the Americans make capital out of both affirmative and neg ative answers." He added: "An indorsement of the Monroe doc trine, however hedged with qualifica tions, would be accepted as a recogni tion of their programme, while the merest theoretical criticism would be interpreted as expressing Germany's plans for conquest, and the American people would be called on to resist the same. Silence is best." Baron von Zedlitz und Neukirch, a member of the Prussian diet and editor of the Berlin Post, wrote: ' "The Monroe doctrine is from the point of view of international law a non-binding monologue, whose enforce ment is purely a question of force. Germany's interests, however, are so little touched by the doctrine ,at least as interpreted in the Venezuela inci dent, that we have no practical ncea for opening the question." Professor Hans von Delbrueck, or Berlin university, discussing Venezuela in the Preussische Jahrbueher, alludes to the "perfidous nature" of the Amer ican policy, and advocates an alliance between Great Britain and Germany, "which," he says.'would be the strong est coalition in the world," as "while Germany covered Great Britain's rear against Russia and France she could develop an overwhelming superiority toward the United States. Germany would have no need to fear the French Russian alliance, because, with Grea: Britain, she would be sure of Italy's support, while Austria in her own in terests would range herself alongside Germany." The - Hartford Courant thus happily sums up the whole question of com pulsory arbitration: "The young Cic eros of two Indiana colleges are going to debate about compulsory arbitration and a debater-elect asks us to send him the articles on the subject that have appeared in "The Courant" and in other newspapers, handsomely offer ing to foot the bills. The shortness of lie is one of the considerations that forbid compliance with his request, but we will give him (or else the boys of the other Indiana college) a pointer gratis. Under compulsory aroitration, it might be feasible to enforc the judgment of the arbitral board upon the wage-payer, but how are you go ing to enforce it upon the wage-earner? How fi.re you going to compel workmen to go back to work at the wages fixed by the arbiiral board if those work men say "We won't?" Let the affirma tive chaps put that question in their pipes and smoke it-" A Chigao hospital surgeon who per formed a surgical operation without the consent of the patient or of her husband, has been- condemned to pay $3,000 damages. No accusation of want of skill, malpractice or malice was brought against him. "The absence of malice," said tho court "does not ex cuse an unauthorized trespass on the body of the plaintiff." As was to be expected, the newspa pers of the country have taken up and are discussing more than its import ance calls for, the idiotic speech made by Bishop J. W. Hamilton at San Francisco last week in favor of misce genation. Every prolession not cepting the clergy has its due centage of fools. ex-per- Every legislature has some very small men. For several weeks a reso lution has been pending in the Kansas house, providing for a bust of the late Senator John J. Ingalls to be placed in the national capitol, and a number of small politicians in the legislature have objected. With most men persona grudges end at the grave. John Mitchell says there isn't a word of truth in the tory that he's trying to combine all the labor unions in a uni versal boycott of products made by non-union men, of the men themselves and of their employers or patrons. "I have never been and am not now en gaged in any such scheme," he says, "and I know nothing about it." I comment! The Bible in the Furnace of Science. The letter of the German kaiser on Professor Delitzch's conclusion as to the Babylonian origin of "many of the myths and legends in the Old Testa ment," to use the language of Professor Harnack, has started anew the stream of letters which always comes to us when any question affecting religion is brought into special prominence. The particular subject discussed by Del itzsch and Harnack. however, can only be treated profitably by those having a far more intelligent understanding of it than most of our correspondents pos sess. At the bottom, it is a question of fact; and a disputation which is unable to controvert the authority of the phil ological and archaeological evidences and is ignOrant of them is manifestly vain. Accordingly, the pope has institute! a commission for Biblical studies for the special purpose of weighing all such evidence, on the ground that "the task of explaining them intact is too diffi cult for our Catholic interpreters to acquaint themselves well of if left to their individual efforts; and he tells the commissioneis that "none of tho recent discoveries which the human mind has made is foreign to the purpos-? of their work." Thpy are to avail themselves "even of the assistance of non-Catholic scholars," and he has put at their disposal a certain part of the Vatican library and "a numerous col lection of manuscripts and volumes of every epoch which treat of Biblical questions." The commission is to reply to advice asked of it, and, "periodically or as need may require," it is to publish its writings. The examination at the Vatican of such evidence as Professor Dolitzsch presented is to be, therefore, very thorough; jet some of our correspond ents who have no precise knowledge of it or of the fruits of archaeological and philological investigations generally, in their relation to the Scriptures, under take to settle the whole question off mand, from their interior consciousness merely. The pope's commission, it may be assumed, will find enough to do in examining this evidence to keep them long at work. Tears are likely to pass before it comes to any decision on them. The Roman Catholic church moves with great deliberation in such mat ters. The council of Trent, which opened in 1545, did not close until 1567. or eighteen years afterward. A quar ter of a century may pass before the Biblical commission is ready to make a final report, and they will be years in which the critical and scientific investi gation and analysis of the Scriptural evidences are likely to be carried to an extreme far beyond the point reache:i by Professor Delitzsch. It is plain that the Bible will be sub jected to every scientific test, and the' more severely as the resources of sci ence are enlarged and broadened by archaeological investigation and dis covery. The kaiser has rebuked Pro fessor Delitzsch for drawing conclu sions from his Babylonian explorations, but no imperial dissuasion will prevent him and his scientific contemporaries and successors from proceeding to every demonstration and every conclusion they are able to make or logically to draw. The Bible is now in the furnace cf scientific test and nothing our cor respondents can say will either impede or accelerate the process through which it is destined to pass. New York Sun. Dwindling of the Public Domain. Half a century ago the United States had about 2,000.000,000 acres of publis lands. Less than one-fourth of this vast estate is now in the possession of the government. According to the re port of a senate committee, "the entire public domain suitable for settlement will be exhausted and there will be no land left for our people who desire to make homes on it if our present system of land acts continues five years longer." It appears from the investiga tions of this committee that while the land laws served a beneficent purpose at first, they are now utilized to pro mote fraud. "We are making all pos sible haste under our present land acts," says the committee, "to turn over to wealthy men and corporations this rich heritage of the people. The popu lation of the United States, today S0.- 000,000. will doubtless reach 130.000,000 in the next twenty-five years. Wher; will this rapidly increasing population find homes on the land if we permit the public domain to pass into the posses sion of men seeking to own and control vast landed estates?" That there have been flagrant viola tions of the law is very clear from the reports of special agents of the Interior department. Immense tracts have been absorbed by powerful interests and used for grazing cattle. Their influence has been so strong that it has been impos sible to secure legislation which would limit their holdings. In states in which the grants of public land have aggre gated an enormous acreage in the last decade there has been no increase of population, as there would have been if the land had been allotted to actual settlers. This fact alone is conclusive proof that the public domain is passing into the hands of a few individuals or corporations. In opening these lands to settlement it was the intention of the government that they should be al lotted to persons intending to make homes for themselves and cultivate the soil. That purpose has been thwarted in late years, If remedial legislation is not enacted by the next congress a comparatively few mc-n will control what now remains of the 2,000,000,000 acres of public lands once owned by the nation. President after president has emphasized the necessity for such legislation, but their recommendations have fallen on deaf ears. Baltimore Sun. In Reply to President Eoosevelt. "An OH Maid," commenting on Pres ident Roosevelt's recent remark that "the man or woman who deliberately avoids marriage .... is in effect a criminal against the race and should be an object of contemptuous abhor rence by all healthy people," says in a letter to the Argonaut: "The man professional, clerk, employe or other who on a small salary or income mar ries and raises a family in genteel misery is a fool. The old man who, after acquiring a fortune, marries a young girl usually the case is u knave. The man who marries a woman for her money is a scoundrel! The man who marries to have a cook and a ser vant is level-headed, but uninteresting. The girl who marries a clerk or em ploye with a small salary is ignorant, and to be pitied. The rich old woman who marries a young man is a foo'. The woman who sells herself for money is despicable. The workingwomau who marries the workingman to be his ser vant deserves her fate. Marriage is only desirable when the man and the woman are intelligent, devoted one to the other, ready to bear in common the troubles of life and to share its pleas ures; when the man is valiant and a money-maker and the woman a good housekeeper. Unfortunately, such con ditions are rare." San Francisco Argo naut. The Elusive Secret of Lor g Life. Pope Leo XIII, who is again reported to be seriously ill, is remarkable not only for his great age, but for having attained it while bearing the burdens of rulership. As a rule kings and poten tates have been short lived. Queen Victoria's eighty-one years of life had only one precedent in over a thousand years of British monarchs. George III lived to be S2, but he was senile for nine years before he died. Only four British sovereigns in ten centuries lived to be 70, and the great majority of them died before they were 60. It is outside the circle of sovereigns , and statesmen that we find the most evidence of increasing length of human life. The few distinguished examples to the contrary are misleading. A Leo XIII, a Queen Victoria, a Gladstone or a Bismarck does not upset the rule that to stand in the highest places of public honor and duty is unfavorable to length of days. This is assured by the over whelming evidence that women, not men, furnish the largest number of human century plants. Out of 203 cen tenarians found in Massachusetts a few years ago 153 were women. The British registrar general of England, analyz ing the mortality returns of that coun try, found four female to three male centenarians.

The people formula. Pope Leo XIII gave one a few years ago, in which he recom mended a sparing use of meat, a plenti ful consumption of milk. eggs, honey, fresh vegetables and ripe fruits, a mod erate use of pure, light wine well di luted with water, and a little coffee. On this semi-vegetarian diet the pope has lived long and with great freedom from bodily ailments. Nevertheless, the conditions of his life are not uni versal, and no always-applicable rule for the making of "old bones" can bi given. New York World. The Disguises of Nature. By a decree of nature one-half the world nourishes at the expense of the other half. The sparrow chases the butterfly, but the hawk chases the spar row. For the problem of life is twofold. It is not enough merely to eat; it is necessary to avoid being eaten. Yet nature detests killing for killing's sake. Massacre forms no part of her great plan. So we see that every creature is provided with some more or less effect ive quality of defense by means of which the attacks of its natural ene mies are rendered less frequent cr less deadly. Thus the antelope, by means of its superior speed, at times escapes from the lion. The armadillo, rolled in it- wondrous coat of mail, lies secure among a score of hungry, gnawing foes, while the white hare, scarcely distin guishable from the snow on which it crouches, is often overlooked by his fof the fox. But of all creatures none have received more ample protection than the insects. Some of them possess stings, others bite and a few puff out clouds of poisonous vapor to stupefy or blind their pursuers. Again, there are insects covered with sharp spines and prickles and others whose means of defense consist in nothing but a like ness to the objects which surround them. The Royal Magazine. B'g Steamers in the Pacific. Last week the Siberia arrived in this port. The Siberia is the second of the new fleet of mammoth lineis that the Pacific Mail company is having built foV the oriental trade, and the largest vessel th&t has ever entered the port cf San Francisco. She is 572 feet in length, and measures three tons more than the Korea, which is a sister Vessel, and is built upon practically the same lines. The Siberia came from New York in 54 days, which establishes a new record for steamships over this route. The trip through the Straits of Magellan, a distance of 318 miles, was made in 22 hours. The Korea broke all previous recoids in her first round trip on the China run, and is now away on her second trip. On her trial trip the Si beria made 22 knots, which is about two knots better than the Korea did, so she is expected to make an even better showing when placed on the regular run. AVhile the Siberia is the largest vessel that has yet entered this port, the large modern liners are becoming more and more common in these waters, and it will not be many years before the Korea and the Siberia will not be conspicuous on account of their size. In order that these larger vessels may be handled with quickness and economy, the harbor facilities must be considerably increased, and there is certainly no time to be lost in adjust ing the harbor to the newer conditions. San Francisco Argonaut. Oklahoma Monuments. Few people in Oklahoma have forgot ten Col. David L. Payne. However, lest they forget. Senator Campbell has introduced in the Oklahoma legislature a measure which has for its object the erection of a monument commemorat ing the deeds of that worthy man. He was the original Oklahoman, says a Guthrie correspondent of the St Louis Globe-Ddemocrat. He started the agi tation which finally forced the United States government to open Oklahoma to settlement. He accomplished this by leading numerous raids of boomers into the territory, then a part of Indian Territoty, now Oklahoma. After the Indians relinquished their titl? to the lands in 1866. Payne considered it gov eminent land, open to settlement, and claimed that the cattlemen who were holding it under pretense of a leis-. from the red men and were making one big pasture of it were occupying it wrongfully. After years of hardship and persist ent endeavor Payne forced the govern ment to recognize the rightfulness of his claim and as a result the "Land of the Fair God" is now dotted with farm houses and prosperous cities. Its fine, broad acres, once trod by herds of cat tle and inuring to the benefit of only a few, now produce the wealth which I makes 600,000 people happy. The land on which only fourteen years ago were a few ranchhouses is now filled with prosperous homes and contented fire sides; Payne organized his first expedition of boomers in Wichita. Kan., in 1SS0. It consisted of between 300 and 400 men, who were not soldiers of fortune, but bona fide homeseekers. They made their first camp in Oklahoma at Rock Falls, just across the line from Hunnewell, Kansas. They paused there a few day? only, when they proceeded to what is now Oklahoma county, and Payne staked off the first claim, six miles from the present site of Oklahoma City.

The civil war must surely be over when, r-t a banqi'et of ex-confederates i:i New "iork City, a toast can be drunk In silence and respect to the memory of Jefferson Davis, and when at the same banquet Mr. Henry Watterson, the in fluential Kentucky editor, can deliver one of the - finest eulogies of Lincoln ever heard, and receive the hearty ap plause of all those assembled. This in dicates the elimination of the lust trace of sectional feeling in this country, and we are glad of it. "When, a few weeks ago, Mississippi, the home of the president of the con federacy of 1861-65, placed Lincoln's portrait in her state capitol, a striking evidence was furnished of the conquest which the great emancipator's memory is making over the affections of the people of the south. That region's change of sentiment toward Lincoln is clue to many causes, some of which will be outlined here. Through its stupendous industrial de velopment and financial expansion the south is learning that it has gained more through the overthrow of slavery than did the rest of the country. When the south" remembers the record of the reconstruction era it sees that Lin coln's assassination hit it a harder blow than it did the north. In the in telligent study, made possible by the historic research of the last few years, of tho cataclysmic period from South Carolina's secession in the closing days of 1860 to the removal of the last of the federal troops from the polls in the south by President Hayes in 1S7T, the old confederate region has discovered ISA AS VS.
