Xew York, July 11 (Special corres pondence of The Republican) During many years the public at large has been taught to study Wall street, it having been repeatedly declared a mir ror reflecting the prosperity of rail roads and industries, the value of crops, wheat, corn and cotton, and the output of mines, gold, silver, iron, cop ier and coal. For the past six months prices for securities have declined. All the benefits presumed to lie in high prices have evaporated. Many "gilt edged" securities are lower than they were before the magnificent "boom" took place. Labor commands a god price and is no drug in the market. Capital is in demand and many oppor tunities exist for employment, indus trial wealth and population have mul tiplied, acreage yielding magnificent crops has increased, mining wealth has been added to, and forge and factory, loom and mill report healthy demands for every class ot goods for future use. Railroads report increased freight and travel receipts un.F business in abun dance ahead of them. This is all known to he true. If so, what is the matter with the mirror? Prices for many bond. and stacks during the palmy days of speculation reflected the insane antics of crazy speculators rather than the valuers placed on them by conservative in vestors or their values as producers of income and conservators of invested funds. It is not to be wondered at that "when the mania for speculation sub sided, or rather when the optimistic speculator got a nervous chill, the pushed up prices sagged for lack of support. Then the ever-ready Bear, with his tale, of woe- had his innings and the pessimistic operator pointed to WHY IT SUCCEEDS Because It's for One Thing Only, and Phoenix Is Learning This. Nothing can be good for everything. Doing one thing well brings success. Doan's Kidney Pills do one thing only. They're for sick kidneys. They cure backache, every kidney 111. Here is Phoenix evidence to prove It. L. S. Dunbar, proprietor. of the fruit and cigar store, 33 North First avenu, residence 576 North Seventh avenue, says: "Doan's Kidney Pills are not a new remedy to me. We first used them in our family several years ago when living in Marietta, Ohio, where they are considered a household necessity. They are the finest remedy for backache or any symptoms of irritated or weakened kidneys on the market. Shortly after moving here some three years ago symptoms of a recurrence of kidney trouble in cur family became evident, and we tried to get Doan's Kidney Pills at several drug stores. They knew nothing about them and we sent to our druggist, Mr. Styer of Marietta for a supply. Noticing them advertised In Phoenix last winter when we required them we procured them at the Brisley Drug Co.'s store. They are a necessity in our household, particularly so when compelled to drink the water in Phoe nix. On every occasion when their use is required they have never failed to bring prompt relief."

The railroad and industrial situation In the United States may be clashed as the Kastern Mississippi and the West ern Mississippi interests. East of the great river are th" great commercial centres heavily populated, and the-bulk of the nation's industrial wealth. The experimental period is over. Railroads have gone through their critical per iods. Great cities are fixed, their fu tures merely a matter of growli in a direct ratio to time. Hence "the silt -crlged properties" Pennsylvania, New Haven and Hartford, Post on and Al bany, New 'York Central. Erie, Balti more and Ohio, Louisville and Nash ville, Lake Shore, Michigan Central and Illinois Central. West of th? gre;-. river a territory still in its infancy. A country sparsely populated of incalculable- wealth agriculturally, and In mines of coal. Iron, copper and gold. It will also be rich with industries. Its railroads, in time will haul enor mous freights and millions of passen gers. Vet, the problem of the future is to be worked out. The former is attractive to the investor, the latter to the speculator. It has been stated that the oil indus try has furnished the Rockefellers with untold millions which need invest ment and further that within a defi nite period of time oil production will diminish. The New York Central be come an attractive proposition to the Rockefellers. None of the Vanuerbilts remain at its head giving It the "close attention that the three generations who made it did. The founder of the' Vanderbilt family, "Commodore" Van derbilt. W. H. Vanderbilt and Cornel ius Van lerbilt were men who worked many hcurs a day. V. K. Vanderbilt is an able man, but has more time for pleasure than business. The fourth generation, the sons of the late Cor nelius and William K., don't amount to much. It wouldl not be .surprising therefore. If the hardworking John D. Rockefeller and his pious and equally industrious son, should secure con trol. To obtain the stock it is necessary to cause timid holders to feel that "something must be wrong." They read the "something" in the quotations on 'Change. The price has gene down. The timid sell. No Vanderbilts stand ready to take it, but the Rockeft Hers are ready. It enough stock is released Rockefeller will control. When un influence as powerful a3 Rockefeller Is exerted to reduce prices so that tney can acquire at a low price and they hammer "gilt-edged" prop erties, others must decline in sympa thy. The Roe kefc-ller scheme is always to buy so that an investment will net C per cent. When "gilt-ed'ged" secu rities that have been paying 3 per cent, on invested funds are hammered, thousands of shares which have bt-en placed with banks as collateral for loans are forced on the market. And the Rockefeller banks can keep him pretty well informed as to hypothecat ed securities. A comparison; of the cost of Xe'.v York Central and other gilt-edsed In vestments with the $200,000,000 issue of the United States Steel bonds, paying 5 per cent, shows a ridiculous condi tion of affairs. New York Central and PennsyH-ania have sold as high- as 170 and paid at those prices about 2Vi per cnt. net per annum. At 114 it pays about 3Vi per tent. The Steel bonds pay at current prices over 6 ier cent, net; and as I have before stated, the company's net profits ier annum are suflicient to pay the interest on the total bond issue for five years. Still in the prevailing bear movement th; public is warned off the steel bonds. If the Wall street Influence did not so humbug the public" it would realize that funds invested in Stwl bonds were more secure than In New York Central and yield a better rate of in terest. Any one doubting this state ment should compare the net earnings of the rallioad with the Stetl com pany; also the decline in values and1 loss in the investment of funds in cither property during a given period. I The ready purchase of the Pennsyl- j vania s recent issue proved that the public has mcney ready to invest. Al though a determined effort was made by bears to bloc k the( transact!')!! it was made to prevail. S' much for confidence. Will the New York Cen tral's application for millions in view of the raid on its stock values, be as successful? Time will demonstrate. Yet it must be borne In mind that its receipts have not diminished. The on ly question is will its earnings suffice to carry a 125.000,000 or $30,000,000 tem porary loan? It Is interesting to compare the Penn- j sylvania and the Central with the' United States Steel. The latter has i not 'only enormous earnings, but iron mines of Incalculable value. These mines will increase not decrease in value. Their product becomes more and more in demand as population multiplies and its varied necessities' become a demand on mine and mill. The steel Industry in all its branches is as fixed as railroading. Mines of ore possess better property values than railroad ties and steel rails which are but short lived, and factories and forge s are no more perishable than engines and freight and passenger cars. Competition no more threaten the United States Steel corporation than do rival roads those of the New York Central and Pennsylvania. Yet in the face of extraordinary facts pre f.enteci by United States Steel the pub lic rushes for New York Central and Pennrylvania. I saw tho same situa tion in this city when Jay Could leased the two elevated railroads and formed the Manhattan Railway company. The stock hung in the market around 10. It Is now seling at l.ti. I saw New Jersey Central sell at 0: It Is now sell ing at 165. Wall street talked of these properties as it now talks of United States Steel. West of the Mississippi men like lUrriman, Gould. Moffat, Clark, Hill an'di Rockefeller are fighting to gain footholds of strength to meet the great advances of the future. At Denver there has been a concentration, of loads, the Missouri Pacific seeking an outlet to the far wst by running south and west and north to Ogden the Union Pacific ruining north and west to Salt Like City. The Reck IslanJ. the Burlingtoir and other roads here re ceive freight for the East and deliver for the West. West of Denver rises the hitherto Impassible Colorado Di vide. West of the granite wall lk-s a country rich with anthracite coal, coke coals, gold mines, gilsonite, primeval forests and fertile valleys. This great territory is larger than the state of Pennsylvania. UNITED STATES AND ENGLAND. There can be no question as to th" sincerity of the governing classes in England, from the King down, in the!r efforts to be on the most friendly term: possible with the United States. It may ) that the millions of the British peo ple share in the same sentiment, al though they seem to be very apathetic, on the subjec t. We never hear erf a i great meeting in Hyde Park to voice their opinions with respect to it and in the labor publications, which dis cuss the problems nearest and n-.ost vital to their interests, allusion to it is scant and rare. Their thoughts centre on things far more practical ti. price of bread, the rate of wages, th length of the working day, old age ensloin, municipal ownership, improved tene ments and scores of other problems on the solution of which their comfort and ad vance-ment. present and prospective, depend in so great a degree. With the larger xditic s of the empire they' have r.o concern, ,r else they avoid it as either beyond their comprehension or unworthy of their atti-r.tion. What is the situation among our stives? While we have, of course, no governing classes In the sense they have in England, that is no particular divisions of the people from whom the principal officers and officials are ex clusively taken because of the acci dents of birth or wealth; there is nev ertheless a professional iolitieal caste to whom the offices generally go be cause the acquisition of them has be come a regular pursuit. Mr. Roose velt, for Instance, is a good represen tative of this element. Prom almost the year he attained to man's estat he has been in political life, either a candidate for office or a holder of one. He was very young when he became a member or the legislature. When he was running for mayor of the greatest of American cities, one of his compet itors was double his age. He managed to ljecome a police commissionr with out the slightest experience In that di rection. Civil service reform became fashionablle and populalr with men whom the political machines had re jected, and he speedily got the very highest office in that field of usefulness. A not very able or accurate book about the naVy which he called a history, helped to make him assistant secretary of that department of the government. Without training as a soldier, he rais ed a unique regiment in the war with Spain and came out of the conflict dec orated by his admireres as a hero. Sore pressed for a candidate his party made him governor of his state. Then he wr.s shuttled Into the vice presidency and the bullet of an assassin made him chief magistrate. Taken all and ell, it is a pretty long political career. Liut there are scores of men who dou ble it in length of time, particularly In congress. Mr. Allison of Iowa Is one. Mr. Hoar of Massachusetts is another. Senators Piatt of New York, Quay of Pennsylvania and Gorman of Mary land are others on the long list of men who have made public service the main pursuit of their lives. Hy men of this type little is ever said or written on the English ques tion. It is not within the sphere of practical politics and so does not con cern them. If pushed to expression on the subject they will smilingly ac quiesce in the prevailing sentlrr.cr.-.t of their audience. And the reason of it Is that for them it Is dangerous ground, fitted with all sorts of traps, snares and pitfalls. Rut although the politicians maintain a judicious silence concerning the relations that should exist between the two great English speaking r.a tiens, there' is undoubtedly a very deep and earnest, feeling fill over the country that our national policy should travel along the lines of the closest friendship with the English people. The fires of past controversies have expended themselves. Ancient ani mosities concern not this generation and are remanded to the keeping of history Where they belong. No right minded American wishes to see any other nation In distress, but most es pecially the country from which the republic has chiefly sprung, the coun try with which we have a common heritage in law, in religion, in language and literature. Rut above and beyond all there is the business nerve. Great Britain is the very best customer we have for all our products, the product of the factories as well as of the farms. Any Interruption of the com merce between the two countries would be one of the greatest calamities that could befall us. A blow to the prosperity of Great Britain would be a blow to our own progress and advance ment. Self-interest, therefore, if noth ing else, commands that nothing be left undone to foster the ties that bind us to our English brethren. No one advocates a formal alliance. Nor Is one necesssary. A mutual under standing based on frank, honest, sin cere, manly good will is all that is necessary to accomplish every end In view. Perhaps England has more to gain by such an understanding than we have., what if she has? Mathe matical exactness cannot be expected in such a case and it would be churl ish and un-American to insist upon it. In the meantime a good deal of non nense bordering on idiocy is spoken and printed on the subject on both sides of the Atlantic. In this category may be set down Ambassador Chonte's Fourth of July suggestion at a ban quet in London, to set up a statue of Queen Victoria In the capltol at Wash ington, and to put one of George Wash ington In tt.e house of commons or some other sanctuary of monarchy. In ane gush of this kind do.'s more harm than good. Equally absurb and fan u...cal Is the proposition advocated in a volume Just issued by a leading publishing firm that both England and the United States abolish their natur alization laws, so that Americans may acquire lull citizenship in England and Englishmen be admitted to com plete citizenship and political equality in the United States, change of alle giance being allowed at the option or these American-Englishmen and English-Americans. The author of thj work in question would permit an Englishman to sit in Congress and an American in the house of commons or lords if he could get there. The idea is pot new, having been suggested by two or three English enthusiasts years ago without meeting with the slightest favor. Common interest Is the only sure and certain foundation on which to bas an international friendship of any kind. In the case of England and ourselves that common interest is or. a solid, substantial, plain, incontrover tible fact and It is all that is necessary, provided there Is common sense on both sides. The earlier statesmen or the republic, Jefferson among them, saw It. and committed themselves to such a policy. In the first year of his he'-ond presidential term, Jefferson wrote to Monroe these words: "No two countries upon earth have so many points of common interest and friend ship; and the rulers must be great bunglers. Indeed, if with sucn disposi tions, they break them asunder." Eng land's rulers were then unwise and did the breaking act, but the wrong should not be cherished against the England of today. The joints of "common in terest and friendship" still exist. By Phineas Fletcher. o A DOUGLAS CORPORATION. Recently Organized for the Handling of Mining Properties.

"But it's bigger dan it sounds." says Mr. Paul. "It's de graftlest graft dat ever grew out of doors," he says, using some real langwudge, which he can. when he wants to talk straight.
