Mr. Champ Clark used to be a treDerous Insurgents In the Democratic bunch of sophomores more than anything lOver 1150,000, 000 was disbursed In New York on April 1 in the shape Ot dividends paid by corporations. It Is a tidy sum and will assist In mak ing the wheels of Industry turn faster In this country for a little while to come. rrhe sting of a bee as a cure for rheumatism seems a little like an "old wife's tale," but perhaps there la real science In It. At one or the New York hospitals experiments are being made, a supply of beea being kept for the purpose. Patients expose the afflicted parts of their bodies to the Insects, and It Is said that relief follows the sting, will be fort Iven to the bee. New Tork Is likely to make the maximum penalty for kidnaping fifty years and for extortion and blackmail, twenty-five years. It is a very good Idea. Crime can hardly take a more contemptible form than cither kidnap ing or the levying of blackmail. The prospect or spending the greater part of a lifetime In the penitentiary would be likely to put a ilumpcr on that pe culiar kind of Industry. An Associated Press correspondent declares unequivocally that the story . Of an attempted assault on ej-iPresIdent Roosevelt by a crazy steerage pas . seng4r:on the steamer fyamburg was made out of whoi cloth. , Despite the dental, some papers persist In repeating the yai'a. and1 It will probably1 be mad to stick, even'tnough the affair never took place. The Irish land bill Is up again in the House of Commons. It was crowd ed out at the last session of Parliament, and the fact that the measure will entail an expenditure of at least 1775,000,000 suggests that It may again meet the same fate. The demand for additional Dreadnoughts is too pressing just now to seriously consider drafts of such magnitude on the treasury. Japan declines to submit her differences with China to arbitration, al leging as a reason for her declination that the Dragon Umpire has neglected some of the formalities prescribed as a necessary preliminary to submission of a case to The Hague tribunal. Perhaps China has been remiss In that re tard, but In the Interest of peace Japan might overlook the omission. It is not hard to forgive a slight when a real desire for peace exists. The process of "reawakening" In China is not always a triumphal march, but every now and then something happens that is a hopeful sign. One of these is the announcement by the regent. Prince Chun, that the fireworks and Incense ceremonies for the purpose of frightening off the monster sup posed to be swallowing the sun or the moon when an eclipse occurs are to b discontinued. Prince Chun says the custom is "superstitious." It does look a little that way. i "A man who shoots an elephant." declares lencral Miles, in a sudden burst of confidence, "must have a depraved mind." If. 'being given three guesses, you should guess that General Miles still nurses his petty spite against Roosevelt, you could have two guesses left. "Elephants are so use ful to us. you know, for they are put to work at so many things." In his mind's eye be seems to see them making overalls, scrubbing the kitchen, spading the garden, shining shoes, and climbing trees, and he weeps and weeps. "Excuse these tears," he says. In sub-stance, "but when 1 think of that depraved Roosevelt person, I get this way." General Miles is what re mains of what was once as gallant a fighter as ever fearlessly faced death. He has never been himself since he contracted the millinery habit, and hnd 'his room walled with looking glass. We do not understand how the Inter view with him was procured. Some nimble reporter must have waylaid him on the well worn path he travels from his milliner to his photographer and from his photographer to his milliner. Prior to llie presentation of the Payne tariff bill by the wajs und mean'" committee to the House of Representatives there was conslclerabl t;ilk as to the possibility of the measure providing for a tax on coffee for the purpose of increasing the revenues of the government. When the bill was finally Introduced it was seen at first glance that coffee was left mi the free list nd the consumer's heart probably leaped a little w ith joy over the fact that the revenues of the government were not to be increased by an import on a commodity which would strike ut the pocketbook of every family. A closer scrutiny of the Puyne bill, however, disclosed that fact that it proposes to levy a retaliatory or countervailing duty on coffee. An analysis of how this will work out shows that while such a duty probably would not affect prices to consumers who buy their coffee at 30 and 10 cents a pound, it would, in all probability, be the means of increasing the est of the cheaper grades of coffee, and that is the kind which Is th.; more generally purchased by the bulk of the people of the United States. The Chicago News recently ex plained the situation In this regard moot lucidly as follows: "The so-called Joker, slipped Into the free list, provides that if any country or province shall put an export duly on coffee sent to the I'nlted States there shall be levied on its product an Import duty of like proportions. No duties are im posed "ii Java and Mocha coffee, the high grade varieties from the Dutch East indies and Arabia, respectively. The states of Hrazil, however, levy export duties on coffee. Santos and ltio coffee, from the South American country, makes up SO per cent of the supply annually used In the 1'nited States. It provides the cheaper grades, sold ut J 5c, 20e an,l 2Dc a pound retail, to wrkingmen's families. About four-fifths of the nrazllian coffee consumed in the United States conies from Santos, the port of the state of Sao Paulo. At this moment the export tax lex led on coffee by Sao Paulo la 2 5-8 cents a ixiuiul. The tax is lower at other seasons, being 1 5-16 cents a pound on the first U.OO'i.Ouu buna of 132 pounds inch exported after July 1 each year. When the exports have rem hed that total there Is added' a tax of 20 .:? cent ou the value of any coffee exported This higher tax Is intended to prevent overproduction of coffee in Sao l'a'ilo. The House as and means committee explains it provision for a retaliatory duty by sayini; that It would force the state of Sao Paulo to lift its export duly on coffee, or at leat to lower it. Secretary Kil"X, however, has sent to the Senate finance committee confidential data, supplied by the Hra.ilian embassy at Washing ton, which shows that this export tax of Sao I'auio s cannot be repealed be cause foreign loans lire secured by It. Thus it is plain thit the Imposition of the proposed retaliatory duty uould add tniiteii.i!l to the price of each pound if 1.1 to LMe coffee soil at retail in th" United Slat'. it is reported from Washington that the Senate finance committee will strike from the Payne toll the iiiovibion for a coffee tax. The House of Representatives liuuld not wait for the senator to do this, but should attend to the matter Itself." WILLIAM. F. BROGAN MANAGING EDITOR m:ysiI'i:ii. 5-J -ov college professor.

Is trying 10 preserve the Morgan iKir.-e of half n teututy ago, and alao establish it type or carriage horse distinctly Ameri can. While the Importation of Ivirs s from foreign countries continues year .titer year, yet there Is constant and continuous demand for the American home for carriage iind sinlilW' pur poses. The pn serving of the M"i Kan horse is to provide u t'nmily hnrse. The speeil eraze which struck Mor gan horse iir lers and led to tho ciossing of the old-time Vermont Morgan with other strains, result-id In a sacrifice of conformation and rttyie to speed and the original was threatened with extinction. As a re sult there is a Strang'' Morgan situa tion today a few rial Morgans, fos tered by breeders loyal to breed standards, and many that are regis tered was Morgans but tire Morgans only in name. The government's work Is being carrier! on in il iff ere it part of the country. The M.irgan farm is at Mlddlebury, Vt, and ex periments also are being made at the Colorado state agricultural college. Morgan breeding was arranged f-Ji' ii. co-operation with the Vermont ex- perinivllt station In the full of 195 j, purchase were mad. until Juae, 1908, when seven maris ana two fillies were bought from various per sons in Vermont by a board of auth orities. In making the selections for the Morgan farm an effort was made to get the true Morgan type, with an increase In size and quality over that possessed by the original Morgan. However, type was not sacrificed to size. When it became necessary to go below the prescribed lze to get the desired type this was done. The next purchase was two mares from Kentucky as an experiment, the Idea being that a cureful out-cross would give increased size and quulity with out destroying desirable type charac teristics. The (Stallion General Gat''S and a filly were purchased July 1, 1907. General Gates was purchased after careful consideration, not only on his own individuality as a modern Morgan out upon his ability km a mi'-..' qf the type desired, J Only two crops of foals have ,l("ii Jbtainod in the Morgan work. T.ie aim at the Vermont farm is to pre serve the Morgan type at its be.-tt. keeping the splendid conformation, spirit and endurance, for which these horses were famous, and eliminating the tendency to coarseness, heavy withers and low bucks. A careful ef fort will also be made to improve the action by getting away from- the chopplness and irregularity in gait, and particularly to eliminate tin: tendency to pace and mix gaits. .Size will be Increased carefully by selection, but it is not the purpose ut the department to make the ne Morgan a big horse. It should be un dcrstood that the work with the Morgan Is not to be merged into the American carriage horse; although the Morgan always has been and probably always will be a prime fac tot In the production of carriage horses, the type will be kept distinc:. It Is not patriotic fancy to urge taut native types of light horses should be preserved. It is not a fallacy that out of these types can be evolved the horse par excellence for farmers and horsemen, who prefer the light type. Neither Is it paternalistic nor social istic for the federal government to assume the Initiative In tho work. It is a broad movement requiring a na tional policy to insure uniformity, concentration of effort and continuity of purpose. To KENT Ily day or hour. .Mux well touring car.

S. llreniuell, for five years superin tendent of public buildings and ground In this city, has been or di red hack to his regular work in the engineer corps of the army, where ho will be in charge of t:ie harbor im provements on the Wisconsin side of Lake Michigan. In an inti rview summarizing the work lie has done in Washington, he takes the position that Washington is di stined to be the most beautiful city in the world, the world's garden wpot and architectural wonder, outranking i i-aris, long me ni-isi neuutiiui city n Ktirope. "Washington," says Major Itrom e, "is today second to none In the world from the standpoint of physi cal beauty, but with a comprehensive gi m ral plan of Improvement like that of the park commission, and systematic, appropriations from Con gnws, It is eventually to become more beautiful in every way than any oth er city in the world. "Landscape gardening Is not exa :t ly In line of what an engineer officer expect, but I became deeply inter ested in It after 1 had heen assigned to the office of superintendent of public buildings and grounds. The assignment w as a pjost agreeable one , and I shall remember it with pleas ure. "My opinion is that Congrn-s has been liberal in the matter of appro priations for the beautlfication of Washington. If the money can be furnished as needed, and is used Tor the carrying forward of a general plan of beautif icatlon, Washington will become a more wonderful city than Paris, or any other city of the world, undent or modern. "There should be a general plan, however, and it should oe rigidly ad hered to. "1 am not specially committed' to the ISurn.iam plan, but in improving the city for five years I have borne it in mind, and have made changes which would not conflict If that plan should ultimately be adopted. "With a comprehensive plan, Im provements can be made in certain localities as the money is appropriat ed. There will not be a great deal of Improvement, going on at any one time, but by constant work, year af ter year, Washington, in perhaps one generation, certainly in two, will find Itself the garden spot of the world. "Paris now boasts of Its Champs Klysee, which leads from the center or the city, under the beautiful Arc de Trlomph, to the Bols do Pou longe. This is a magnificent stretch of a mile, and the arc of triumph, nf which twelve avenues intersect, is one of the architectural beauties of France and all Europe. "This boulevard will extend from this cupitol to the west end of Poto- mac park, near the river bank, where it is proposed to erect a magnificent monument to the memory of Abra ham Lincoln. With Potomac park connected with Kock Creek park, one can readily appreciate what the beauty of fin h a plan will be. "1 believe the White House ellipse should be left here, as It now is. It is well graded, is covered with grass and Is imposing In appearance. "The opening of new streets and the extension of old ones In the far ther northwest section of the city will develop many new Intersections, where undoubtedly there will be lo cated parks. In these parks In time statutes will be placed. In time Washington is to be in a very true sense a city of parks and gardens and of public buildings, the most at tractive from an architectural point of view the world linn ever known. "Millions of dollars have been ex peuded for new buildings in the heart of the mall the past few years, and the plan to erect practically alt of the public buildings of the future within this park enclosure Is a wise nne."

The regime of economy and reform, however, would not per- mit of so simple a course. What ae- tually occurred was this: The sur geon, made a requisition on the pay master for one coffin. Naturally, he did not have one In stock, and there tore it was forwarded to the fleet pay master, who, also, not being in the undertaking business, had no Collins on hand. Then the admiral directed I he licet paymaster to purchase one i ollln. after obtaining prices from six reputable dealers. The same course had to be followed In securing the grave. The surgeon made requisition on the paymaster for one grave. Strange as it may seem, the paymas ter had no graves in stock. Neither had the fleet paymaster. Consequent ly, the commander directed the fleet Taymnstcr to procure bids from six tellable dealers In graves, and pur chase one from the lowest responsi ble bidder. All this, of course. Is a screaming farce, but it Is the horrible example to show what comes when common sense and experience are set aside to give room for the play of amateur and academic fancy. En gineering.
