James R. Hart. Editor. S. M. Rutrierford. Business Manager. j John S. FltzgIMons. City Editor. THE PRESIDENTS MESSAGE. President Roosevelt sent a special message to confess today. The message deals entirely with one subject, "An act to provide for the con- struetion of a canal connecting the waters of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans." By this act the President is authorized to secure for the Unit ed States ttie property of the Panama ( Vnal company and the perpetual control of a strip six miles wide across the isthmus of Panama. The Psvs:"'-1.?n?; reviews all the treaties and legislation on this subject and then gives the reasons why the United States should and did recognize the independence of Panama. ' - " . 1. The Panama route for the canal was decided upon by act of con gress, June 2S, 1902. 2. The people of Panama desired the canal and wanted it constructed under American control. 3. Colombia refused to ratify a treaty whereby the United States could construct a canal across the Isthmus of Panama. 4. Panama separated from Colombia and declared her independence. The United Stales government was ih no wise implicated in the revolu tion. The President says: "I hesitate to refer to the injurious insinuations which have been made of complicity . by this government in the revolutionary movement in Panama. . They are as destitute of foundation as of propriety. The only excuse for my . mentioning- them is the fear lest unthinking' persons might mistake for acquiescence the silence of mere self-respect. I think proper to say, therefore, that no one connected with this government had any part in preparing-, inciting-, or encouraging- the late revolution on the Isthmus of Panama, and that save from the reports of our military and naval officers, given above, no one connected with this government had any previous knowledge of the revolution except such as was accessible to any person q ordinary intelligence who read the newspapers and kept up ?. current acquaintance with public affairs. "By the unaimous action of its p?ople, without the firing- of a shot with a unanimity hardly before recorded in any similar case the people of Panama declared themselves an independent Republic. Their recogni tion by this government was based upon a state of facts in no way de pendent for its justification upon out" action in ordinary cases. I have not denied, nor do I wish- to deny, either the validity or the propriety of the general rule that a new state should not be recognized as independent till it has shown its stability to maintain its independence. This rules is derived from the principle of nonintervention, and as a corollary of that principle has generally been observed by the United States. Put, like the principle from which it is deduced, the rule is subject to exceptions ; and there are in my opinion clear and imperative reasons why a depar ture from it was justified and even required in the present instance. These reasons embrace, first, our treaty rights; second, our national interests and safety; and, third, the interests of collective civilization. "This recognition ws, in the second place, further justified by the highest considerations of our national interests and safety. In all -the range of -oar international relations, I do not hesitate to aliirm that there is nothing of greater or more pressing importance than the con-struf-iion of an interoceanic canal. Long acknowledged to be essential to oar commercial development, it has become, as the result of the recent ex tension of our territorial dominion, m e than ever essential to our na tional 'self-defense. "In the third place, I confidently maintain "that the recognition of the Republic of Panama was an act justified by the interests of collective civilization. If ever a government c'ald be said to have received a man date from civilization to effect an object the accomplishment of which was demanded in the interest of mankind, the United States holds thai position with regard to the interoeeanic canal. Since our purpose to build the canal was definitely announced, there have come from all quarters as surances of approval and encourage'nen, in which even Colombia herself at one time participated; and to general assurances were added specific acts and declarations. Tn order that no obstacle might stand in our 'way, Great Britain renounced important rights under the Clayton-Pul wer treaty and agreed to its abrogation, receiving in return nothing- but our honor- to build the canal andprotect it as an open highway. "That, our position as the mandatary of civilization has been by no means misconceived is shown by the promptitude with which " the powers have, Onr- after another, followed our lead in recognizing Panama as an independent state. Our action in recognizing the new Republic has been followed by like recognition on the part of France, Germany, Denmark, Russia, Sweden and Norway, Nicaragua, Peru, China, Cuba, Great Britain, Italy, Costa Rica. Japan and Austria-IIung-ary. " It will be noted that the President gives the best of reasons why the Senate should ratify the canal treaty at once so that preparations for its construction may begin at once. able pledge PRACTICAL . EDUCATION. From an educational standpoint, the past year has been a conspicu ous one. No better expression of the thought can be found than the one in the Louisville Herald and we reproduce it here in part: "One work epitomizes the year's educational effort and aspiration practicality. This is true of Germany, France, England and especially of the United Slates. It applies from primary grade to graduate university work. The most impressive instance in our own country w:is the $3,000, 000 school of professional journalism, entrusted to Columbia University by the munificence of Joseph Pulitzer, editor of (he New York World. The teaching of practical journalism was begun also at Kansas University. In many colleges for women new courses in domestic science were started. At Yale and elsewhere insurance was taught, and at Chicago a new de partment was devoted to elaborate coarsens in tire protection. Forestry was taken up at California, cattle killing at Iowa, and gardening at Columbia, Western Reserve started a school for librarians. Missouri had a travel ing school of farm work by rail. Columbia established a chair of Chinese. Southern schools gave increased attention to actual gardening, both for training and support. Throughout the North, more attention was paid to manual training and kindergarten work. Charles M. Schwab began the establishment of a series of trade schools. There was a continuance of the era of expansion, the enrollment of students in public and private schools and colleges rising to new records, and the total of many factions running into the tens of millions. Throughout this country a concerted effort was made by teachers in public, schools to secure higher salaries. Western League Starring. 'Clubs. Played. W. L. Pet.
