WEBSTER DAVIS RELATES ONLY WHAT HE HAS SEEN. Violation of the Sacred Obligation of Tract At Dundee an English Buggy with a White Flag Becomes a Murderous Maxim—A Wounded Briton's Treachery—He Kills a Boy who had Handed Him a Canteen of Water. " Why should we not sympathize with the Boers?" exclaimed cx-Assist ant Secretary of the Interior Webster Davis at a great pro-Boer meeting lately held at the National capital. "Why should not the greatest Repub lic in the world assist the smallest of Republics? " Is tlie word ' liberty' to become ob solete in our national lexicon? Must this greatest Republic of the world's history chain its destiny to the chari ot wheels of the British empire in her mad race for land and gold? " Shall the fair name of this great Republic, whose prowess on land and sea has been the marvel of the cen tury, be used in Europe by British of ficials and the British press as a men ace to other European powers who are anxious to assist the Boers in their brave struggle for freedom and inde pendence? "No people in all the world's his tory has made a more valiant effort to seaure liberty for future peoples than have the Boers; no people lias endured more hardship for the cause of liberty. "These men have the same spirit that prompted the farmers to face dentil for liberty at Lexington Green ; that nerved the arms of Americans at Saratoga, Bunker Hill and Brandy wine; that warmed the hearts of Washington and his shivering patriots at Valley Forge; and at New Orleans, where Jackson and his men taught old England that easier were it to hurl the rooted mountain from its base than to force the yoke of slavery upon men determined to be free." Mr. Davis witnessed the battle of Spion Kop in company with Mr Hil legas, the World's correspondent, with the Boers, whose thrilling description of thai historic battle was printed re cently. Referring to it, Mr. Davis said: "We have seen many charges made by British officers and British news paper correspondents that the Boers have frequently outraged the white flag and the Red Cross flag. Upon investigation, not only among the Boers themselves but among the 4,000 British prisoners, including the officers, who were at Pretoria when we were there, we learned that these charges were absolutely unfounded. "On the contrary, we did learn that this was a set-up job to deceive n6t only the people of Great Britain at home, but to deceive the peoples of other civilized countries. " The truth is—and I defy contra diction—that the British soldiers themselves are the parties who violat ed many of the rules of civilized war fare, und frequently ignored the white flag and also the Red Cross flag. "It was my fortune to witness some of these scenes myself. On the top of Spion Kop, when that wonder ful battle was almost over, a young Boer soldier—not more than seven teen years of age—was passing by a wounded British soldier, and the Brit ish soldier asked him for a drink of water. As the tender-hearted Boer lad was kneeling down by his side to let him drink from his own canteen that British soldier thrust a bayonet into the poor boy's side. And I my self talked with him, and, kneeling by him, shed tears when he died. " During the battle of Dundee there was a lull in the firing for a time on account of the Boers seeing a buggy approaching them rapidly and float ing a white flag. All awaited its ar rival. At a distance of about six hun dred yards from them the buggy stopped, wheeled about, dropped the white flag, and that innocent-looking buggy was suddenly transformed into a murderous Maxim gun, which felled nearly a dozen Boers. " I talked with the man who cap tured that flag and saw it myself. It was a white flag with a small black stripe through the centre, but a short distance away it seemed perfectly white. That flag is now in the pos session of Col. Blako, the brave Amer ican officer who commands the Irish brigade, which is composed almost en tirely of Irish-Americans, and no braver men are in the Boer army, said Gen. Jonbert to me." England's acquisition of the dia mond fields at Kimberly Mr. Davis characterized as a transaction without a parallel " for cupidity, dishonor and injustice." Then followed a period of peace. "But finally this period of peace and rest was broken by the discovery of gold in the Transvaal. Then it was that the British Government deter mined to seek a pretext for obtaining "Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall Where they May." control of the richest gold fields in the world, ns it had before secured the richest diamond fields. " Wherever gold has been discovered, tiiere the British have turned a wist ful and longing eye. When gold was discovered in Alaska only a few years ago how quickly an effort was made to extend the Canadian line far enough westward to lake in the gold fields! " How long would the people of our Republic stand it, if foreigner, from any country in the world were to come here and after getting rich in our gold mines would undertake to control our government, and failing to do so would endeavor to destroy it? "No flimsier pretext for robbery aud murder ever emanated from the wickedest Cabinet in Europe in it. palmiest days than the British de mand for a five-year franchise in the South African Republic. Not an Englishman in the Transvaal would renounce allegiance to the Queen. " The question of the naturalization of foreigners in the South African Re public is no more the business of the British Government than are the nat uralization laws of the Republic of Mexico a matter of concern to the Re public of the United States of Amer ica. " The simple truth is that the Brit ish Government forced President Kru ger into a quarrel after lie had done everything in his (tower lo avoid it. The British demands were trumped upaud are without a sound basis,either in morals or in law." OUR " PLAIN DUTY." Prof. Schurman's suggestion that bad faith shown the Puerto Ricans in the matter of promises is likely to prove an instructive lessou to the Filipinos, and encourage them in con tinuing their blind resistence to the blessings desired to be showered upon their great benevolent assimilator, is worthy of all consideration, but some what late. The Filipinos have had a little experience of their own already. Gen. Anderson, the first American general in the Philippines, and the first with whom Aguinaldo had deal ings, owns, in an article in the North American Review for February, 1900, to an " evasive answer" given to the Tagalo leader in reply to the direct question whether the United States intended to hold the Philippines as dependencies. Having on a preceding page admitted " whether Admiral Dewey and Consuls Pratt, Wildman and Williams did or did not give Aguinaldo assurauces that a Filipino government would be recoguized, the Filipinos certainly thought so, proba bly inferring this from their acts rather than from their statements," he goes on to inquire, " What could be inferred from the fact that Aguinaldo and thirteen other banished Tagals were brought down on a naval vessel and landed in Cavite?" where they were given arms by Admiral Dewey, and also by himself, at Dewey's re quest, allowed to organize three brigades, and also to arm a small steamer they had captured. Yet, he says, " I was the first to tell Admiral Dewey that there was any disposition on the part of the American people to hold the Philippines if they were cap tured. The current of opinion was setting that way when the first ex peditionary force left San Francisco, but this the Admiral had had no rea son to surmise." After so informing the Admiral, what was the reply made by Gen. Anderson to the downright, admittedly " embarrassing" question asked by Aguinaldo on July 1, 1898! Why, that "in 120 years we had established no colonies," when "he (Aguinaldo) then made this remarkable statement: *1 have studied attentively the con stitution of the United States and I And in it no authority for colonies, and I have no fear.' " Not to correct this impression was to confirm it. That Gen. Anderson has a con science is evident from his weak con fession; "It may seem that my an swer was somewhat evasive, but I wits at the time trying to contract with the Filipinos for horses, carts, fuel and forage." In common law, this would perilously resemble an attempt to ob tain these under false pretenses. In what condition he keeps bis con science is to be questioned, when, after such admissions, and others no less confirmatory of the contention of anti-imperialists, he goes on to speak of our retention of the islands as a " task, imposed upon us by a combi nation of circumstances, we must now carry to its logical and legitimate conclusion." "It is a part of 'the white man's burden' which we cannot now lay down." With bim and his conscience we are not concerned. The fact remains that, as Judge Harmon admirably said at the ban quet to Judge Taft in Cincinnati some days since, promises to the Filipinos were not needed. Our whole history, OLYMI'IA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, APRIL 2(1, 1900. the principles of our political lifetime, were promises, which it is as much our " plain duty" to keep as those made in our name by Gen. Miles in Puerto Rico. To fail lo do so will consign our country to a position of infamy in the future history of na tions. S7STO HAVE A GOWN PERFUMED One of Mrs. George Gould's Extravagances The fad of perfuming among fash, ionable women has reached a point where Oriental B»(r»v«gance of purse and fancy beggars the chemist's art. From the delicately scented bas sinette and soft baby linen, redolent of Florentine orris, to the ball room where the frou-frou of smart femininity exhales a violent fran ranee, the costly craze for perfume devices finds ex pression. The aroma of a pretty woman is her hall mark. In the modish desire to exhale an atmosphere of evanescent fragrance, a luxurious woman spends for scented extravagances every season a sum equal to a working man's wages for a year. The Countess de Castellane, who is said to out-Paris Parisians in her ex penditures for perfume, has carried an ideal of French perfumers to a fanci ful extreme. The rixtecn four-story trunks which accompanied the countess on her recent visit to New York were lined with perfumed flan nel, and through the gowns and lingeries were strewn scented amulets, stamped with the Castellane erest. New York chemists offer similar perfumed flannel, at sl2 and sl6 a yard. An order for thirty yards from a fashionable woman is not unusual. Closets, cedar chests, hat boxes aud every compartment containing dainty toilet belongings aud lined with it, and everywhere the pungent amulets are scattered lavishly. While violets continue the distinc tive perfume of the ultra-fashionable, the duchess of Marlborough has cre ated a vogue for jasmine in London, which has been taken up by certain New York women. At a coat of f75 Mrs. George Gould lias had a gown scented with jasmine by a process that represents the last word in the perfume extravaganza. The bodice and skirt were adjusted in an enclosed frame over a lighted per fume lamp filled with jasmine essence and left for twenty-four hours to ab sorb the delicate fumes. Mrs. John Jacob Aetor has a collec tion of perfume lamps which burn with some characteristic fragrance in different rooms; peau d'Espagne in the Moorish library, a breath of san dalwood in the Turkish smoking den and her owns partments suggesting the cremation of fresh violets. Mrs. Ogden Mills' particular fad is beautiful linen, and her famous nap ery is kept fragrant with thyme and carnation, and her linen closets fresh with lavender blossoms. The " per fumed tub" luxury is a practical thing. A miniature shower bath in silver, to be filled with violet spray, has just been made for Mrs. Ladenburg. Mrs. Stuyvesant Fish has revived the drooping fancy for smelling salts, and into the languorous atmosphere of smart society this winter she ush ered a salts bottle resembling an or nate Mason jar. Our Consul-General at Frankfort, Mr. Guenther, sends the State De partment some very interesting facts as to " Krupp's," the great provider of the tools of war. " Krupp's" at present has 41,750 people employed in making war ma terials. To such huge proportions has the business grown since it was founded in 1810 by the grandfather of the man who now directs it. " Krupp's" owns iron mioes and iron furnaces in various parts of Europe. It owns steamship lines to take them to the points nearest the factories in Germany. Within the last three years "Krupp's," recognizing the growing importance of sea power, has been building shipyards at Kiel, where nearly three thousand men are already employed, with a certainty of more than doubling the force before very long. "Krupp's" is a monopolist. But its is not the kind of monopoly that seeks to sell inferior goods at high prices by means of a complaisant gov ernment. Its is the monopoly of merit—the ideal monopoly that is the admiration of all that love progress and the despair of the slothful and the incompetent. Where the Shots Strike.

Six Hundred of the Nine Hundred American Railroads Are Less Than Ten Miles in Length—You Cannot Form Any Opinion of Their Trackage From Preponderence of Nime—Some Art Active Little Fellows. General Passenger Agent Francis, of tht Burlington Route, sends out the (flowing interesting information re garding tiie mileage of some great American railroads: Exclusive of side and double tracks, the mileage of the four longest roads is as follows: Chicago & Northwest ern, £,345 miles; Burlington Route, 7,859; Stnta Fe, 7,718; Canadian Pa cific, 7,(84. Most persons guess the Pennsyhania and the Southern Pa cific among the first four. The South ern Pacific ranks fifth with 7,201 miles; ilien comes the Pennsylvania with 7,093 miles. The other railroads longer than 2,000 miles follow in the order named: Chicago, Jtilwaukee Jc St. Tanl .. 6,420 St ui hero hallway 6.416 Miwouri Pacific 5,326 Great Northern 5,203 Northern Pacific 4,746 Grand Trunk 4.183 Illinois Central 3,WW Chicago, Kock Inland & Pacific 3.771 Louisville Si Nashville . 3,235 Union Pacific 3.060 New York Central A Hudson River 2 024 Big Four 2.845 Missouri. Kansas 2fc Texas .... . 2,222 Baltimore & Ohio 2,204 Plaut System 2.140 Erie 2.104 Mexican Central -.. 2.064 New York, New Haven & Hartford . 2,047 It is surprising to some people to find so many well-known roads of the east with comparatively small mileage. The Boston <t Albany is only 394 miles long. In other words, the road that unites the Hub with the capital of the Empire State and is one of the busiest and richest roads on the conti nent, is scarcely more than one-twen tieth as long as the Burlington Route. The Fitchburg road, favorably known not only in New England bat all over the country, is exactly 458 miles long. The Lackawanna line, which hae be come widely known as a great trunk line since western enterprise came to direct its management, is less than 1,000 miles long, and might be ab sorbed as a branch line by an one of a half dozen western railroads. Some railroads with but little mile mileage have been endowed with un commonly long names. The Beaver Meadow, Tresckow & New Boston railroad lias all of three miles of track built and in actual operation. Some day the superintendent of the depart ment of motive power and machinery of the Beaver Meadow, Tresckow & New Boston railroad may take a trip over his own line, stretching from Beaver Meadow, Pa., all the way to New Boston, Pa., a total distance of 21 miles. The Manitou & Pike's Peak railroad, the! famous cog-wheel road ascending Colorado's lofty peak, is nine miles long, but if you tried to walk the ties of this railroad you would think it had a mileage of 999 miles. The Cairo railroad is four miles long, and there is a small road in the Catskill mountains which has a mileage of two miles. The most popular length of the nearly 9QO American railroads appears to be less than 10 miles. There are over 600 railroads less than this dis tance in length. Therp are many other interesting features which a cur sory examination of the mileage of American railroads will disclose. But if you want to collect a*few beta from your friends, just ask them to name the four lougest railroads in America. You'll win. STAR-SHAPED ELECTRIC LAMP. The Invention of a Worcester Man of Special Use in Sleeping and Parlor Cars. New York Journal. Samuel B, Husseltnan, president of the Worcester Optical company, has invented a new incandescent electric lamp, which, he believes, will revolu tionize incandescent lighting. His patent will be issued March 27. Robert T. Lincoln, president of the tollman Palace Car company, has written to Mr. Husselman asking for his price for the invention, as he thinks the new style of light would be of inestimable advantage in sleeping cars and parlor coaches. Mr. Husselman calls bis invention the electric metallic filament lamp. It is made on the same principle as the ordinary incandescent bulb lamp, only that, instead of a single slender coil of carbon inside, there is a stron ger substitute. Mr. Husselman has invented a fila ment of asbestos, iodine, aluminum and alcohol. The asbestos is saturat ed with iodine and coated with filings of aluminum. Crystalized alcohol is applied as a dust to the coating of the asbestos aud the thread is then sub jected to enormous heat. The filament is to be put in the bulb in a star-shaped coil and the shape gives a much larger surface glow with light. The star will not tjucli the glass at any point and will be kept in place by the strength of the filament itself at a point where it en ters the bulb. The lamp will not be a suspension lighter, but will be lodged solidly in walls or ceilings. A PATHETIC APPEAL Can Anything be More Impressive than This Pen Picture? James Crt--lman in S. F. Examiner. Now that the Administration lias had its way, and the fetters are forged for the limbs of our our Porto Rican wards, it may be well to ponder upon what a mighty thing is for them, and liow closely it affects life and death on the unhappy island. I looked to-day [March 19] on the most sorrowful sight ever seen on American soil. Vast multitudes of merchants, bankers, planters and la borers, headed by the Mayor of San Juan and the president of the Cham ber of Commerce, walked in deathlike silence, like a great funeral procession, to the palace to ask the American Government not to make the Ameri can flag the symbol of oppression in American territory. Nothing like this solemn spectacle has been seen since the colonies revolted against King George. Wiien they arrived at the palace the crowd waited in the street silently, while the committee, headed by the Mayor and Mr. Crosas, president of the Chamber of Commerce, entered. General Davis, being sick, the deputa tion was received by Adjutant-General Hill und Chief Surgeon Hall. The committee handed Hall their petition. " We speak in the name of the busi ness men and the agriculturists of the whole island regardless of property," said Mr. Crosas. "It is a matter of life and death to us. We want a de cision now. We cannot wait. Delay means death, ruin." Surgeon Hall read the petition and said: "The recommendations in this petition are in line with the sugges tions General Davis has made to the President of the United States again and again. General Davis will imme diately cable the petition to the Secre tary of War and will do everything in his power to aid you." Adjutant-General Hill said: "I can inform you that the Secretary of War has authorized that a million dollars be spent immediately for the relief of the island. All this will be used in making roads. Within six weeks we expect to have 30,000 labor ers employed on public works. Mean while, we will continue to give food to prevent starvation." " That is good, but we are sorry that the people must receive the bread of charity," said Mr. Crosas. " What would you have at this mo ment?" asked Hill. "Free trade," answered Crosas, "is the condition of stability under which commerce and industry can re vive. With free trade business will be resumed by merchants; bankers will have money to lend to planters, who can employ labor." " Suppose Congress makes the tariff 15 per cent?" suggested Hill. " Then for God's sake let us know our fate at once. Make it 15, 20, 25 per cent. We cannot help ourselves. But act quickly." The committee returned to the street and announced the answer, and the multitude gave three cheers for the United States and for General Davis. Meetings of merchants were held to day in all cities and towns of Por to Rico. Telegrams are pouring into the palace. Meanwhile special prayers are offered in all the churches. This morning, for hours, I watched American men with tears in their eyes distributing relief to hundreds of white, trembling widows and orphans. Huudreds of women in the mountains are almost naked. Long live imperi alism! An Estimate of Padcrewski. New York Times. A London paper credits " a Kansas journalist" with making the following remarks about Paderewski: " The fellow is deceitful. He makes you think all the time he is go ing to play a tune, but he never does. He flirts all around a tune, but never touches it. His hair looks like a wig, but it isn't. He deceives you in a hundred ways. He makes the sweet est sounds you ever heard that were not a tune. He has his piano so trained that it will keep right on play ing when he is not touching it. He reaches out slowly and strokes it, drawing back his elbows like a man brushing a girl's hair. You see the moonlight, and you're there with your girl, but somehow she doesn't love you. You know the sorrow of that, and that's wlyr wo dontj like Paderewski." That is criticism which, whether it was written in London, in Kansas or somewhere else, has certain elements of grandeur. Several phrases in it are calculated to make one suspect that the writer knows more about piano playing than he cared to reveal, and that he was trying to teacli true doc trine by indirection—writing down to the level of uneulightened readers. DEWEY AND GEN. TAYLOR. Spokesman-Review. Dewey's candidacy and its surround ing conditions bear some resemblance to the political situation in the cam paign of 1848. The Democratic ad ministration of President Polk had conducted a successful war of reprisal and conquest with Mexico, and fur ther enlarged the territory of the na tion by bringing in the disputed re gion of Oregon. Here was discourag ing prospect for the Whigs, and to meet it, they cast about for a popular candidate. He was found in the per son of General Zachary Taylor, who had fought in the Mexican war with distinguished gallantry and success, just as Dewey fought under the ad ministration of President McKinley in our Spanish war. General Taylor, like Admiral Dewey, had not been a partisan, but the Whig leaders ob tained from him the admission that while he had not voted at all in 1844, if he had voted, it would have been the Whig ticket. Upon that they constructed this interesting platform declaration; " Resolved, That General Taylor, in saying that, had he voted in 1844, he would have voted the Whig ticket, gives us the assurance—and no better is needed from a consistent and truth seeking man—that his heart was with us at the crisis of our political destiny when Henry Clay was our candidate, and not only when Whig principles were well-defined and clearly asserted, but Whig measures depended upon for success. The heart that was with us then is with us now, and, we have a soldier's word of honor, and a life of public and private virtue as the secur ity." President Polk declining to make the race for re-election, the Demo cratic party nominated Lewis Cass of Michigan for President, and William 0. Butler of Kentucky for Vice-Presi dent. The free soil convention nomi nated Martin Van Buren of New York for President, and Charles Fran cis Adams of Massachusetts for Vice- President. General Taylor was chosen by an electoral vote of 163 to 127 for Cass, and by a popular vote of 1,360,- 601, as against 1,220,544 for Cass, and 291,263 for Van Buren. Points of difference between the sit uation in 1848 and that of the present year are the improbability that Presi dent McKinley will decline to make the race for re-election; the aggressive presence of Bryan, with the rank and file of the Democratic party with him; and the injudicious action of Admiral Dewey in conveying the Dewey home to bis bride, and thereby removing the bloom from the popular flower of admiration. BARNUM OUTWITTED. How an Elephant Helped Spread the Fame of His Rival. Saturday Evening Poet. At one time James A. Bailey was Barnum's moet formidable rival in the circus business. A short time be fore open hostilities began between them one of Mr. Bailey's large female elephants gave birth to a baby. This, by the way, was the first baby ele phant ever born in captivity. It proved an immense card for Mr. Bailey. The birth was chronicled far and wide over the country. Mr. Bar nura, quick to see the advantage of having so important an attraction as a real live American baby elephant, telegraphed to his rival, Mr. Bailey, as follows: " Will give for your baby el ephant $100,000." Mr. Bailey wired in answer: " Will not sell at any price." This seemed a daring thing to do, for SIOO,OOO was an enormous sum to offer for a tiny little beast. But re fuse he did, and hustled with his show to meet the great Phineas T. Barnum on his own ground, meanwhile pon dering in his fertile brain a coup which was to land Barnum a captive on his back. By the time Mr. Bailey reached the region where the Barnum show was exhibiting, the whole coun try was billed with huge potters on which was most conspicuously printed in flaming type, "What Barnum Thinks of the Baby Elephant," and underneath that heading was printed Barnum's telegram to Mr. Bailey offer ing the big sum for the animal. This poster greeted Mr. Barnum wherever he went, and worried him very much. To avoid seeing it, and in search of better business for his show, he changed the route of the latter and made direct for the far West, leaving Mr. Bailey in undisputed possession of the fighting ground. This defeat nettled Mr. Barnum. WHOLE NUMBER 2,090. He was not used to being beaten. However, the fact was before him, he was a defeated showman. The world knew it. It was now a matter of his tory. He was far too sagacious not to desire to make of such a redoubtable foe and rival as Mr. Bailey an ally, and accordingly at the end of that year negotiations were entered into, which resulted in the combination of the two great exhibitions into what in literal truth became the greatest show on earth. To Mr. Bailey was' at on re given the laboring oar, and very soon the entire responsibility and manage ment of the immense combination and business. OASTOniA.
