H;lD\\ MHRMMI, mum M, IMI.- •' Li't Him Go It " What profundity of meaning is die played in the words uf tlrover Cleve land when a.-ked hi* opinion of Brian, and he said: He lias the Mage; let him gn it"' At liret thought their depth it not clearly perceptible, hut when the deep import is considered inversely, what a world of meaning ami malice they express. In this in stance the " prophet" did not seek among the uunsual or obsolete words, piled like rubbish in unabridged dic tionaries, but had pat a street slang phrase to express his opinion of a man who is at least his peer in all that goes to make the statesman. While it may be that Grover has not much cause to love William, it must be borne iu mind that the latter has had just cause to condemn the man who claims to be so much bigger than his party as to pursue any policy whether held by it or not. " lie has the stage; let him go it," means com plete, unqualified, malevolent con demnation of the candidate of the party twice and utter repudiation of the salient features of the Democratic platform the past eight years. It means that unless the party is reor ganized under his dictation that he will "go it" into the ranks of the op position, as he has done twice, profes> sedly to discipline the party. The term " into the ranks" is not too strongly expressed, for the Palmer and Buckner movement was the most effec tive means for diverting the few honest votes from the regular party and en sure a plurality for McKinley. The malcontents had " the stage" then, and the 133,000 votes thrown away on the so-called National Democratic ticket and the secret votes cast by the main conspirators for the Republican ticket defeated the party, at a time when its principles were eo essential for checking the rapidly growing power of corporate greed. Unchristian Methods. In glaring contrast with the noble work of Ghas. 8. Crittenden, the mil lionaire engaged in establishing Rescue homes for fallen women all over the country, to whose noble work reference was made in these columns lsst week, eomes the announcement that Mayor Boyd will be prosecuted by the Spo kane Ministerial Alliance, for failure to drive out the class who are in the main victims of misfortune, and made so by man's perfidy. At a meeting of a committee of the Alliance, held last week, a plan of action was mapped out, which includ ed, as its main feature, profound secre cy ss to the methods to be employed. It has leaked out, however, that if the demand upon the public prosecutor is not obeyed, they will ask Judge Rich ardson to name a special prosecutor to arraign the Mayor. How different is this from Christ's example! Instead of an order to get off the Earth, he spoke words of kind* nesa: "Go thy way and sin no more." Instead of emulating the example of Crittenden, which has met with great success in affording the means for abandonment of a life that is worse than death, these whited sepuichers mark the boundary line of intolerance and bigotry. Instead of the peaceful injunction of the Saviour comes the imperative command, "Drive them out; send them to perdition if need be, but relieve our moral atmosphere of their pestiferous presence!" "Altai the rarity, Ol Chrictlan charity." SHOWS THE BTATCRB OF THB MAN. —One needs no further evidence of the lop-sided nature for a public man than the treatment accorded by Roose velt on retirement from office of Gen. Miles and Secretary Root. While the former with over forty years of brilliant service was precipitately dismissed and was denied the sparing words of commendation which the Secretary of War had prepared as a formal tribute to duty well performed, Secretary Root's exit was an ovation, with every army officer on duty as a guard of honor to escort him to the train that was waiting to carry him back to pri vate life in his profession. Every honor that it was in the power of the autocrat in the White House to be stow was unstintingly heaped upon the man who it is expected will help mould popular opinion to subserve the interests of the President for an other term, while the usual honors were denied a much greater man for the same reason, that he could not be used for that purpose. All this shows the venality and selfishness of a man whose soul is not large enough to fill the office which circumstance placed within his grasp and which bis vaulting ambition inspires him to seek by such despicable means. IT seems that the Congressional ap propriations for the Lewis and Clarke Fair is not yet a law, the bill having been sent to and fro from one house to the other for amendment. The appropriation recommended by the House committee is for 91,225,000, or a less amount.

Japm, which nation isjut-t now fill ing such a large place in the public eve, embraces an archipelago, separ ated from the eastern coast of Asia by the mas of Japan and Okohotsk. It commences with the Kurile islands, and descends in a southwesterly direc tion to the Loochoo group, to which the Japanese reasserted their claim in 1*75. The southern portion of the island of Saghalien was ceded to Rus sia, in exchange for the Kurilos. The government is an empire, anil known in Japan as Nippon, meaning Sun's origin, or land over which the Sun first rises, thus denoting the position it oc cupies in the extreme East. The principal islands number ten that are quite large in area, and half a dozen groups, numbering in all about 4,000 isles and islets, many of which are, however, barren rocks, or sterile waste, uncultivated and uninhabited. The area embraces about 148,000 square miles. Much of the country is hilly and volcanic, and at times earthquakes prevail. The rivers are numerous, but short. There are many lakes; one, Biwa, being 50 miles long and 20 wide. The country abounds iu minerals. The population, in 1887, numbered 30,000,000. The principal cities in Japan are Tokio, accredited with about 800,000 inhabitants, Ozaka about half that number, and Rioto about 370,000. The last named was the ancient capi tal, and bad been in existence cen turies before Tokio, and a considerable time before Ozaka was founded. The Emperor's court now resides at Tokio, and it is there that foreign legations are stationed. Yokohama, about eighteen miles to the south of the capital, on the western shore of the Bay of Yedo, enjoys by far the greater proportion of the whole foreign trade of Japan. Tho chief exports are tea and silk, the former going principally to the United States and England and the latter to France. Although possessing considerable mineral wealth, Japan is not a rich country, and is said to have a his tory extending back 2,500 years, with rulers whose unbroken line extends 660 B. C. The Mikado is an absolute sovereign. The religions are Budhism and Shinto, although the latter is noted more for an absence of the es sential element of all religion, if it means to bind fast to some definite creed or tenet. Shinto means, liter ally, " way of the gods," it contains no moral code, even asserting that there is no need of a system of morals, as the whole duty of a good Japanese consists in obeying implicitely the commands of the Mikado, who is a direct descendent and actual represen tative of the Sun. It also embraces a system of hero-worship, in which re nowned warriors are exalted into the places of demi-gods. Budhism and the Confucian philosophy are of more modern origin. Since the admission of foreigners into Japan, various Christian missions have been established, principally in Tokio and Yokohama, and quite a number of missionaries reside through out the country. In the older history of Japan, Christianity was prohibited by government edict. The present Mikado, Mutsuhito, is a wise and enlightened ruler, born in 1852, who ascended to the throne in 1867. Within the past few years, Japan has made unparalleled progress in civilization, adoption of Western manners and systems. The feudal form has been abolished, retaining, however, distinctions of caste corre sponding to the European titles of duke, marquis, count and the like. The standing army of Japan, on a peace footing, is 60,000 men, which may be increased in time of war to 200,000. The navy consists of 10 first class battleships, 1 second-class battle ship, 1 third-class battleship, 3 coast defense ships, 8 armored cruisers, 16 cruisers first-class, 14 cruisers, other classes, 18 gunboats, 35 torpedo-boat destroyers, 46 torpedo boats first-class, 41 torpedo boats other classes, 4 trans ports and auxiliaries, 4 dispatch boats. The war vessels carry 562 heavy guns and 1,168 secondary and machine guns. EATINO-TRUST AT THB STATE FAIR.— A change in the policy of the Inter state Fair of selling the restaurant privilege to but one applicant at an advance on the premiums for the ten or more lunch-counter concessions last year, is creating considerable oppo sition at Spokane, coming from princi pally four church organizations which have hitherto reaped quite a harvest from refreshment stands. An offer is likewise made for exclusive manage ment of the race pools, hitherto held under the management of the fair authorities, botes tbey cleared over 14,000 on that resource last year, when they conducted the betting, that concession will not go begging, if indeed any change will be made. THE stalwart defense made by the Republicans of the many administra lion scandals that have been un earthed is the best evidence that the Democrats have a splendid issue to advocate, which embodies, enough principles in detail for an entire plat form. If there ever was a time, when a change is imperatively de manded by many considerations of public welfare, it is just now, when the thought of four more years of Roosevelt carries apprehension of dis aster in every thoughtful mind. CALIFORNIA will manufacture olive oil at the St. Louis fair. Idaho will exhibit tin ore. Nevada will exhibit 118 varieties of mineral ore, and na tural soap from the soap mountain at Elko. The Portents of War. Tlie brilliant success ! the Japanese at the beginning of her war will Rus sia seemed at first to presage an early termination of the conflict. It now looks as if calm reflection justifies no hope that such will he the result. Russia is a powerful nation, and when driven to desperation by unexpected reverses will tight with ijuite as much spirit as her opp« ncnt Hushed by vic tory. The greatest fear of a prolonged contest, is however, in complications which may arise with other nations. Government is, after all, but au ex pression of human will, through pre scribed forms, swayed by finite wisdom and controlling passion, which require hut a trifling motive at times, to throw discretion to the winds. If, amid the many conflicting interests that may arise, our country should become in volved, she will find that our colonial system will he a costly appendage to maintain, if indeed it he found that Roosevelt's " club," as he calls the navy, lia9 grown to those respectable proportions that may be recognized as a fairly proportioned policeman's ba ton, in the emergency. Russia, should the fortunes of war, turn in her favor, will undoubtedly justify her austere nature by a war of aggression to make up her losses and firmly re-establish her prestige as a ruling power, and it is possible that Turkey and India may lie in her course of conquest. The downfall of Japan, would leave her master of China and Corea, unless restrained by intervention from other powers; and there is just where there is a probability of an inauguration of the greatest warfare that lias ever dev. astated poor Mother Earth. The Anglo-Saxon may be pitted against the Slavonic races, and that would mean a force in opposition drawn from 120,000,000 Russians, 480,000,000 Chi nese and 1500,000,000 from Turkey and India, a population of nearly a billion people able to mass ten or fifteen mil lion soldiers in a world-wide warfare for supremacy. Then indeed would be verified the the weird predictions so often made by the Mother Shiptons of every ago, wherein the world at war is portrayed in all the horror of halting feet and crippled rhymes. Let us hope that the war-cloud will pass over and leave the firmament again clear, under the bright and invigorating rays of a sun burst of peace, progress and prosperity. Let It Be Met on the Threshold. The Walla Walla Statesman, while conceding to Chairman HeifTner, of the Democratic State Committee, pos session of commanding ability, at tributes to him a disposition to take "snap judgment on the Democrats of the State in the interest of railroads." It then goes on to charge that, at tbe last session of tbe Legislature ho was apparently allied with the railroad lobby. It is to be regretted that at the very commencement of as important a campaign as that impending, any cause of discord should arise, but if such questions are to be presented, it is well tbat they should be submitted early enough to be met and con sidered before the primaries are held, so that each citizen may have a voice in reshaping any perverted line of policy as well as to aid in putting forth an accurate and specific code of principles to be supported at the polls. If there is no truth in the Statesman's charges, an immediate denial should be authorized by Mr. Heiffner, for the Democratic Convention was practi cally a unit on the matter of railroad legislation, only differing in whether the commission favored should be ap pointed by tbe executive or elected by tbe people. If the charge be true the Statesman points out the only alternative to be to "go to the party tbat is tbe especial champion of trusts and monopolies." In times past, the STANDARD has bad nothing but admiration to ex press for Mr. Heiffner, as a firm, con sistent and able exponent of Demo cratic principles, and it does not pro pose now to change its opinion with out a fair and impartial hearing. For the success of the party, as well as support of his own reputation, we hope the reply will be immediate and conclusive. ROOSEVELT WILL BE REPUDIATED LIKE CLEVELAND —The strenuosity of President Roosevelt has secured one thing that he may be proud of, an apparent unanimity of party-leaders that is at least remarkable. His posi tive nature, manifested on so many occasions in expressions of pronounced antagonism, if not hatred, has placed all pap-hunters on their guard, and led to the expression by Senator Bail ey, lately, " That everybody is for him and nobody wants him." Even Boss Hanna, in the Ohio campaign, it was observed, said little, but seemed to keep up a great deal of thinking. Mr. Bailey declared it to be his firm belief that four years from now there would be as few to defend the present admin istration as there were or are to speak a good word for that of Grover Cleve land. He said that already many who clamor for the President dislike bim just as he bad found it unpleasant to defend Cleveland long after he had been condemned by publio opinion and was only sustained by him from a sense of party fealty. TORPEDO boats which fell into dis favor, from some cause, during the Spanish war, have a revival of con fidence from their management by the little Japs, who seem to have a qualification for directing their use that approximates the vaunted " eye sight" of our gunners on the warships. It may be that" Teddy's club" will, after all, assume the form of a bamboo pole. Death of Senator Hanua. Senator Marcus A. Henna died in ! Washington, Monday evening at 0:40 j o'clock, at the family apartments in I the Arlington Hotel. His illness dates j back nearly two months. Two weeks j before his death he attended the an- j uual dinner of the Gridiron Club and j remarked jovially, that no attack of j gri(i—from which he had been sutler-1 ing—could keep him from that meet-1 iug. Late in the afternoon of the 3d iusi., he suffered an alarming relapse. Drs. Rixey and Magrudcr were sum moned and found the patient suffering from a congestive attack. On Mon day, the Blh, it was announced that the fever had developed into regular typhoid. He gradually grew weaker with high temperature. A saline in jection was used to repair impoverish ment of the blood, and strychnine to stimulate the heart. These heroic measures conspired, however, only to prolong life, the final result being foretold when his temperature attained 105 degrees. Both branehesof Congress adjourned Tuesday, on announcement of death by Mr. llanna's colleague, Senator Forakcr, and resolutions of regret were adopted as well as arrangements made for funeral observances in Washington and at Cleveland. A committee of 22 Senators was appointed to have chargi" of the obsequies. Resolutions of re spect were likewise adopted by the House, and a committee, consisting of the Ohio delegation, was appointed to co-operate with the Senate committee. The official funeral was held in the Senate Chamber, Wednesday, the body having laid in stale in the Marble room in the morning. The Gridiron Club quartette sang the hymns. This was suggested BB appropriate from the intimate relations of the Senator with tho club, and his last public ap pearance having been with its mem bers. Senator Ilanna was born in Lisbon, Ohio, on Sept. 24th, 1837. He gradu ated at the Western Reserve College, and entered a wholesale house, of which his father was sonior partner. On his death, in 1862, the son repre sented his father's interest five years. He then formed a partnership in the iron and coal business, which is still carried on. He was also connected with shipping on the lakes, and with many important railway and other corporations. He was a delegate to the Republican convention of 1884, 1888 and 1896. In March, 1897, he was appointed by Gov. Bushnell to fill the vacancy in the U. S. Senate from Ohio, caused by John Sherman's ac ceptance of the position of Secretary of State, in McKinley's cabinet. The Senator was elected by the Ohio Leg islature, to succeed himself for the term ending in March, 1903, and had been re-elected to the present Senate and just taken bis seat. Mr. Hanna was one of the noted men of his age. He was in business a success; in politics a born leader; in statesmanship far-seeing and patriotic. He was a sturdy foeman and a stead fast friend. Probably no man was less understood by his opponents, from the fact that he was so unquali fiedly positive in nature that he took no means for justifying his course, at times inexplicable except by a review of connecting circumstances. It may now be said that while the exponent of the wealth of the country that had passed under trust domination, be contributed in many ways to the harmonizing of the contentions be tween it and labor. He was a violent partisan, and while giving bard knocks, he was the patient, uncomplaining scape-goat for much of his party's misdeeds. A " SALTED" OIL WELL.—It turns out that the reported oil discovery in Cbebalis county Is a fake. A special dispatch of the 14th states that an engineer named Cook, employed in a logging camp on the Wynooche, is re sponsible for the whole matter; that he had " doctored" the ground with a compound of refined oil and skid grease, an admixture formed to obtain something that looked like crude oil, but to an experienced eye lacked the assimilating qualities to perfect the deception. He had dug a hole, two or three feet deep, and poured in the compound, when he was ready for business, which consisted of obtaining a deed for the land and then gave out the story. Options were obtained on land for miles around by the excited people, and it is said Cook refused 85,000 for bis tract. The exposure was made by E. C. Finch, manager of the Gray's Harbor Electrio Railway, who has had considerable experience in the oil businees in California and Texas, and be pronounced the Cook well " a fake, pure and simple," perpe trated by Cook, or somebody, ignorant of the nature of crude oil. IT is "Judge" Weir now (in the Eastern papers). He is heard from in the prosecution of an Edward D. Snif fin, in a New York Court, a confidence man who it seems swindled the Nat chez Logging Co., of which Weir is President, out of several hundred dol lars on a promise to float $400,000 bonds of the company. It seems that the only " floating" thai was done was of a " retainer" to his own pocket. We are glad the "Judge" has been located, though it be in a police court. THE Equitable National bank of New York, lately pasted into the hands of a receiver after a struggle for existence of about two years. It had for President, C. R. Shultz, notably the youngest bead of a National bank in the country. A Rt.izzAKD was reported in New York, Tuesday, with a drop of temper ature in ten hours of 25 degrees, down to from four to ten below zero. A Clerical Climax. The pastor of the Central M. E. Church at Tacoma climbed to a very sensational height, in bis sermon Sun day night, by propounding the query t " W hat is Tacoma's greatest sin?" It must be acknowledged that the rever end gentleman launched rather a pon derous and difficult proposition upon his hearers, for if there is a community under the sun that has a long list of transgressions to answer for, it is surely that of the city at the head of Com mencement Bay, which, among other things we bear in mind just now, stole the terminus from Olympia, thirty years ago, and tried later on to steal the capital. The dominie held up for review In temperance, Sabbath Breaking, Swear ing, Dishonest Business Methods, In fidelity in the Home, Deceitfulness, and all these were given no more than passing reference by the pastor. Lying received more attention, and he depre cated even white lies, those little con venient falsehoods resorted to to main tain the amenities of social life, and then passed on to mercenary lies, the cheating by short weight and measure, or by misrepresenting the quality of commodities. Then there were big lies, involving a turpitude that might consign the sinner to penal servitude and the audience fairly held its breath as they anxiously waited for the cleri cal hand to swing the net and land the bee that was buzzing so viciously. After a pause, however, the preacher declared it was none of these, and the audience, with a look of despair, set tled back, having evidently formed a resolution to " Give it up." The pas tor gazed with supreme satisfaction at the depth of the feeliug he had aroused and pausing a few moments to give full dramatic effect, he slowly and de liberately announced, " The greatest sin of this city is neglected salvation ; or, more strictly spoaking, unbelief,'' and the lock of the congregation changed to one of intense relief :s the murmured refrain, "Is that all?" passed from pew to pew. LESE MAJESTY IN THE WHITE HOUSE. —For the third time since Mr. Roosevelt mounted the Presidential saddle, he has asked that a reporter shall be " with drawn" from White House functions. In 1902 he de manded withdrawal of the New York Sun't represented from Oyster Bay. The second demand was for the dis charge of the reporter lor the Wash ington Timet. All these men did was to write up what took place just as it occurred, and if there was any thing that should have been suppressed it should not have happened. The third reporter dismissed was a lady, society editor of the Pott. A dispatch of the 4th states that Secretary Loeb telephoned the editor that his assign, ment of the lady should be rescinded, as she was " distasteful to the Presi dent." When asked in what way, the answer was "come up here and I will tell you." "My office is in the Post building," was the response, " and if you have any communications to make I will receive them here," and the receiver was bung up with a click that would doubtless have aroused the Presidential ire to fever heat had bis ear been at the 'phone. The so ciety editor of the Post is a cultuied lady, who has long been engaged in newspaper work, and has the esteem of members of official, diplomatic and residential society. Her work has always given satisfaction and she acted as recorder of events at the White House during McKinley's entire ad ministration without criticism from any source. DEATH OF A NOTED BKKWKR.—Wil liam J. Letup, the famous millionaire brewer of St. Louis, Mo., committed suicide by shooting himself in the forehead, last Saturday. Depression over the loss of his sou Fred, three years ago, and the death of Frederick Pabst, of Milwaukee, a life-long friend, is supposed to be the cause. Mr. Lemp was a native of Germany, 68 years of age, and had lived in St. Louis 48 years. AND now it is claimed that the fire in Iroquois theater may have originat ed from a patent gas machine, which Klaw & Erlinger, owners of " Mr. Bluebeard," insisted upon using, against the protest of the house man agers. If it was not the origin of the fire, it seems probable that it may have contributed to the extraordinary release of gaa which caused the death of so many. THK Women's Christian Temperance Union of Tacoma have begun another crusade against Sunday performances in theaters, and will endeavor to have the matter made an issue politically. In response to determined protests, Sabbath performance bad been aban doned, but was resumed when it was thought that public sentiment had subsided on the matter. THE Yakima Democrat now appears as an eight-page paper, and is one of the neatest and ablest edited weekly papers in the State. It combined with the Wathingtonian at the begin ning of the year, under the experienced control of Bro. J. D. Medill. IT is said that the Japanese have introduced in the far Eaat campaign a terrible exploaive said to be the most powerful in the world- It is called shimosite, after Shimose its inventor. Dinamite is not as powerful by a darned-sigbt. CONGRESS has appropriated $25,000 to ascertain and report upon the prac ticability of a tide-water canal across Florida. THE lots to the insurance companies in the Baltimore fire is estimated at from $80,000,000 to $90,000,000. PARTY TREND IS CONGRESS. —The alignment in Congress, on the Orien tal war matter, seem to he that Repub licans are generally for Japan and Democrats for Russia. The former are for Japan because the British are, and Democrats are generally for the Bear because he is England's mortal foe, and for the reason that Japan be gan the war without a moment's warn ing, in violation of international law, just as Naval Secretary Roosevelt (.according to Secretary Long) wanted to blow up the Spanish fleet clandes tinely, before any declaration of war. Teddy has given his sanction to organ ization of a regiment of Rough Riders to invade Russia. They are invincible, you know. THE NAVIES OK THE WORLD.—A Congressional committee has prepared an official chart which shows the relative size of the navies of the world, our country standing fifth in naval equipment. Great Britain is first with 201 vessels, of 1,500,000 tons, built and 38 vessels now building; France is second with 90 ships built, of 570,000 tons, 14 ships building; Russia is third with 59 built of 410,000 tons and 14 building; Germany is fourth, with 73 built of 387,000 tons and 13 building; America is fifth, with 65 built of 294,000 tons, and 13 build ing. The next in order are Italy with 28 built, of 255,000 tons and C builds ing; Japan with 44 built, of 243,000 tons and 3 building. "THE WORLD'S FAIR INDUSTRY."— It seems Congress has "gone wild" over World's Fair appropriations, af fording Senator Lodge the opportunity of calling the persistent activity of getting a fin in for appropriations, " The World's Fair industry." The Senate has now given St. Louis ten millions, Jameston three millions (to celebrate Pocahontas), Portland two millions (to celebrate a trip made by Lewis and Clarke a century ago) Wheeling has a spoon out, New Or leans is holding up a platter and the May Flower decendanta want to thrust a finger in the pie at Plymouth Rock. Meanwhile the deficiency steadily in creases. A WONDERFUL EXHOUTEK. Miss May B. Lord is creating quite a stir at Bethel, near Banbury, Conn., as an evaugelist, by her discourses in churches, on the streets, in the high ways and byways, and her success in reclaiming sinners. Her success is phenomenal, and her converts from all classes of people—rich and poor, man ufacturers, merchants, laborers and professional men. The lady is a grad uate of Wesleyan University and has been in this work but a short time. COTTON sustained a disastrous fall soon as the certainty of hostilities be tween Japan and Russia became as sured, bringing ruin to thousands of speculators. A fall of 100 points in a single day in New York, reported on the 4th, shows how actively the con firmation of disturbances abroad up set prices. The same conditions ex isted at Liverpool, where there was an overnight slump of 100 points, the same date. Since then prices have become more steady. THERE is not a sensible man in the United States who can place his b and upon his heart and say he believes Roosevelt a safe man in any great emergency. His impetuosity over rides reason, at times, even in trivial matters. He may have many traits to admire, but he certainly has some serious ones that overshadow the chief qualifications for ruler of a peaceful country. THE death of Senator Hanna is likely to place Senator Mitchell, of Oregon, at the head of the Canal com raittee. Piatt, the ranking member, does not seek the place as, it involves much hard labor, and he has much other committee work to do. Senator Mitchell comes next, and precedent requires that he be given the chair manship. IT seems a little strange, with so many city directories and traveler's guides at hand, the city dailies could not have obtained two maps of Balti more that presented the same typog raphy, and with school atlases for the mere asking, that the Russian and Ja panese battle-grounds could not pre sent the same general outlines. OUK Washington correspondent (whose letter is crowded out this week) writes that Senator Ankeny used the Yakima dialect, in introduc ing some Indians to the President.
