demands that were not just. The

wise judgment of their leaders and
their own good conduct thus com

Some small boy out in Ohio threw
a stone which hit Colonel Roosevelt
on the head during one of those tur

Yorker loves so dearly to be in the
thick of, and afterwards in speaking
about it the colonel said he had not
been injured at all. Theu he added:
"Had I been feeling in low spirits I
might have felt the pain from the
blow more than I did." Now how
can Roosevelt possibly know any
thing about this or even guess at it?
He has never, for a moment, in all
his lif e been low spirited, and ' has
never been able to find the time to
investigate such a womanish phe
nomenon in others. It takes a man
of much finer feeling than Roosevelt
to , feel low spirited, a man who is
occasionally conscious, though even
dimly, of his own limitations. Who
ever heard of a toy Jack.in-the-box
being low spirited anyway?

THE SOUTHERN INDUSTIAL
The business men of the South
are becoming as practical as they
are energetic. They have countless
sources of undeveloped wealth to
invite not onl the money of the
capitalist but the labor of the
wage-earoer; aud they bare lately
been organizing tnd perfecting
practical method to hasten their
industrial nd commercial achieve
ment. The most effective agent now
employed in the South to develop
her industries and trade is the
Southern Industr al Convention,
and it has become a fixed institu
tion. Its existence has been brief,
but it meets semi-annuaily, and
each mooting of the body has in
creased its numbers, widened its
influence, sod to- day it can point
to positive achievement in quick
ening Southern development.
The next meeting of tbe South
ern Industrial Convention will
open at New Orleans on the 4th
of December, and it promises to
to be one of uncommon interest.
Official invitations from the gov
ernor of the State to tbe officials
and proauGeut business men of
the country have b en issued, 'in
viting the co-opera tio a and the
sending of delegations of busi
ness men to personally icvesfci-
gate the vast resources of the
South. Instruct1 ve addresses will
be delivered by thoroughly ex
perienced men on the leading in
dus'riil interests and the advance
ment of the Southern States, and
a nuniet of prominent men from
the North and South are acnoune
ed as speakers.
This industrial Convention
should attract not only the atten
tion of our busina3S men gener

iness men of Philadelphia. They
have been slow t-o raap the rich
fruits from the South which are
offered to them, but now that our
city has reestablished steamship
connections with the Southern
ports, our merchants and manu
facturers should follow it up to
attain closer connection with the
South; and the best way to do
that would be to send a strong
delegation not only from our city
but from other portions of the
State, to attend the New Orleans
Convention ou the 3rd of Decem
ber. The South is today the most
inviting field of the world for
legitimate employment of both
capital and labor. Philadelphia

and her experienced and practi.
cal business men should be in
the front rank of those who aid
Southern development and gather
the rich fruits which that devel
opment must bring to those who
take the lead in the great" work.
Let Philadelphia and Pennsylva

London, Oct, 21. Following
is official statement given out
here as to the ag-eemsnt be
tween Germany and England to
preserve tha integrity of China,
as was &gieed upon last Tues
day between Lord Salisbury and
Count von Hazfeld1-, German
Ambassador to Eagland.
"Tbe German government and
and Her British Majesty's gov
ernment being desirous to main
tain thsir interests iu China and
their rights under existing treat
ies, have agroad to the following
principles regarding a mutual
pcliey iu Chine.:
''First, it is a matter of joint
permanent international interest
that tbe port3 on the rivers and
littoral of Chica should remain
free and open to trade and to
every other legitimate form of
economic activity for th9 peo
ples of all countries without dis
tinction, ,asd the two govern
ments agrdeon their part to up
hold the same for all Chinese
territory as far as they can ex-
"Second, both governments
will not on their part make use
of tha praseut complications to
obtain for themselves any terri
torial aivantasra in Chinese do
minion, and will direct their
policy toward maintaining un
diminished the territorial condi-
lon of the Chinese Empire.
"Third, la case of another
power making use of the com
plications in China in order to ob
tain under any form whatever
such territorial advantages, the
two eontracting parties reserye
to themselves the right to come
to a preliminary understanding
regarding the eventual step to
be taken for the protection of
their own interests in China.
'Fourth, the two governments
will communicate this agree
ment to the other powers inter
ested, especially Austria-Hungary,
France. Italy, Japan, Rus
sia and the United States and
invite them to accept the princi
pies recorded in it."

this morning. His family was at

from which the aged statesman
died took the form of a general

and to the effects of the serious
illness Twhich he suffered while
on a trip to the West Indies two
years ago. He never fully recov
ered from that illness.
