Perhaps le has. At all r-vctits. if he can show the country the absohiti nerd of four ionic battleship there Is little doubt but that the country wll' et VJ such a iowl that Congress will provide for the battleships. Heretofore whenever Congrss cot its back up and refused to do things the u-resident hJi.i gone to the people. C,nera!Jy the people have responded nnrMinuIr hecu I ue the nreslilent was riuht. When he A.IS Wiling, he SOi.il found out and dwisted. If In this eas the president rvilly believes tbi.s country is in treat need of four more battleships instead of two. It would be n good idea to take the matter uv with th people and loan .them the use of the bis stick or a short time. There exists in the minds of mod people considerable doubt about that batthMhlii i.ronosltioi. in fact, about the entire navy and fortification regime. It U a matter of such large scope Hint the average person does not readily grasp It in all Its various branches.. Events ie past years have shown tl at the American people were very tctrongly opposed to militarism in any form and while II cannot be- charted that an aileuuatn navv Is militarism, wt i 1' the average pcrsxm is not well enough infornusil on the subject to know itist where the lint should be drawn. It appears, however, that the country has been rather neglecting Its navy ami Its forts and strategic points. To Just what extent this .should be remedied Is 0. mailer of grave concern at this time and in fact at any times. The press 0 J he country cxpressen such a wide variety of views, that it i not easy for any one to i rm a clear idea of the situation unless he be an expert In such mutters. tine of the most concise newspaper comments upon the subject of the fortlficatiop of points if strategic importance, appeared recently in the St. 1-ouIh Globe-Democrat. The St. Louis paper turned its attention solely to the Pacific waters and the defect in our fortifications there, as shown by the cruise "Vif the big fleet. Congress has already taken action on a bill tu remedy some of the most glaring defects in the Paelgc sltuntlon and will likely continue building up our fortification! there. Thfc Globe-Democrat speak of tbe matter as follows: The cruise of the fleet Is probably responsible for the paage by the lUtixe of th8 appropria tion of' $?.000,OUO for the erection of adequate fortifications at Pearl Harbor, In the Hawaiian Island. (several weak points in our defenses have been re vealad by the movement of the fleet to the Pacific. One of them Is tha lack of transport and colliers. Most of the supplies for the fleet have been car ried, by foreign vessels. Not enough American ships for the Job were avail able CTh's was tba first weakness which was discovered In our defenses.

Ji u'bpr jus a la near the center of the Pacific. The- Importance of Pearl ' ' i,,U)jJi J naval mation was one of the reasons for the annexation of Hawaii. Au- I we have had the islands Tor utmost ten years, we have never made any ihi Htart In the work of fortifying Pearl Harbor. The House acted wisely in appropriating sufficient money to make a good beginning In the work of creating a strong nfival station in Hawaii. The object was so necessary that a partisan division was not made In the vole. The appropriation passed by a large majority. I'ndoubtedly the Senate will follow- this good example. As the president has often urged this work he Will be glad to use his Influence in getting the Senate to ratify the action of tne other chamber. Not Uite so many muv vt-ssels will be authorized by Congress It; this session as the president and the secretary of the navy have recommended, but a good beginning will be made in the work of fortifying Hawaii and the"ph!)(pines. This Is a result of the cruise which had not been looked for at thv start, but it will be very agreeable to the Amt-riean people. .'

She got down on her knees to search under the ch'ffonler for the outfon which had come off. Whin she struggled to her fed her h?it was over one 1 ar and her veil was crooked and she had not found the hut''.'::. The girl turned pale. "I wish this day was over!" she sobbed. "Every thing goes wrong! I'll miss that train and be late to dinner .Hid Jack hates 10 wait. ih. dear! How 1 loath black gloves with a brown suit, but I'll have to wear black gloves now!" The front door shut on a fold of her skirt and the resultant tug at her belt loiiseiii'd the fastening, so she had to go back and repair the damage to her appearance. Whea she emerged again she began to run toward the suburban station, four blocks away. She hoard the roar of the oncoming' train. As she slammed her dime before the ticket window tile train was ut a standstill. Mie staggered up the stairs Just In t'me to get a good view of the last car platform as it pulled away. 1 "Well!" she said, violently. "Well!" For a moment she walked the de serted platform. Then she -went in- ide the stuffy wuitlng-rooin. It would be useless to try to explain to Jack, w hen he met her on the ar rive! of the next train in the elty. why he had been kept waiting a half hour thinking things about the unreliability and unpunctuality of women! And the pleasant little dinner which might have meant so much would be spoiled just spoiled by his annoyance and her nervousness. When olio had to hurry so and things went wrong one nev r looked one's best. At this point the girl she hated worse than any other walked into the waiting-room anil headed straight for r. so she was obliged to sit mid talk to that awful girl the rest of the time! When the train came at last and she stepped in she remembered "with a Jiang that her new goid-mesh hand bag which she had inteneded to carry was reposing in its case at home. Half way to the city something hap pened and the train stopped for live minutes, which seemed hours to her. Getting out uf the train a big man tiod 011 her toon and she also remeni- 1m red she had forgotten her haudker- hief with the real lace edge. When she reached the plaoe where Jack was to meet her she was tired to leath and ready to go back home and ry herself to sleep. She looked hor rid, she knew, and she loathed all din ners and theatres. As she hastily glanced ardund and it dawned on her that Jack was litfj, standing there with anxiety and an noyance on his face, she realized that the worst had happened. Ho J)d got ired of waiting, had concluded tut she had broken their evenine.. 111- igement and so had gone away! it was the last straw. 'i,i.n him vV n W'"'s" elio hated her self.
