Washington Letter.
D. C.,
On 1 uesday of this week was held one
°f the greatest meetings ever held in
Washington, viewed from a moral stand
point. It was a mass meeting in Lafay
ette Opera House called together by
champions of the principle of internation
al arbitration of disagreements between
nations. The meeting was remarkable in
the personnel of its speaker Andrew
Carnegie, Gen. Nelson A. Miles, John W.
Foster, Edward E. Hale, Cardinal Gib
bons, and numerous other famous people
addressed the people who were present.
The sentiment aroused and developed on
t.iis occasion will probably exert a saluta
tory influence on' nations in the future
when they are involved in controversies
witlrother nations.
The Democratic National Committee
met at the Shorenam hotel on Tuesday
and decided to hold the next national con
vention at Saint Louis on July Oth. I.
was the desire o: Hearst and the New
York forces that the convention be held in
Chicago but Gorman, fearing that by
means of the leverage of his two daily
•newspapers at that place W. R. Hearst
might stampede the conventions for his
nomination, decreed that the convention
be held elsewhere, and thus the deft hand
of the master again controlled. William
J. Bryan was here 011 the day of the meet
ing of the committee but did not appear at
the hotel until after the session was over.
He appeared at the capital one day where
he met a great many of his friends which
seem to be legion,
The astute lecturer ijVakes it a -:oint to
deliver one or more of his lectures in
Washington if it is possible for him to do
so under favorable auspices. Last week
John lemple Graves, thai flowery rhetori
cian from the South, gave one of his lect
ures .in the Rifles Armory un:ler the.
management of the Shiiners. It was he
who recently gave expression to this much
talkediof ebullition on the problem of the
negro: ''Lynching is riot it is blow to the
constitution it is stab at the law, But it
is here to stay until the crime which pro
okes it is destroyed. \\*e are tempering
with a giant danger we are healing a can
cer with a catnip tea. Separation is the
logical, the inevitable the only solution of
this great problem of the races. We have
come in Gods providence to the parting
I of the ways. In the interest.of both
I races and in the fear of God, I call for a
divisidn.'' Some of those who heard him
at the Armory acknowledged that they
detected the aroma of tlCAvers,-the song of
I the mocking bird, arid thr languor and
I beauty of the southland in his address
but when they came away they tried in
vain to recall some vital and substantia
truth which lie had uttered.
On Tuesday evening while at the Co
iumbian University.expectin|.to,'attend a
recitation, we found the assembly room
I where we are wont to hold forth occupied
by sundry people whom we are not accus
tomed to see in our class, and soon we were
informed by the professor of oratory that
I Elbert Hubbard was to lecture in that
room on that .evening, and that'owing to a
combination of circumstances our class
wouid not then meet, but that we might
go in and hear "Fra Elbertus" if we so de-
sired. As we acquiesced in the arrange-
ment, the professor, having his heart in
gool points, and is worth hearing. While
he has certain affectations and peculiarit
ies,, he is Strong in some ways. When he
I speaks in that low serious tone, he seems
to drawyou toward him." (Here-the profes
sor extended his arm and by a sweeping
motion illustrated his idea.) The profes
sor then considered his duty done and we
went into the assembly room On the
rostrum stood a man rather small in stat
uie, who jwore a frock coat that did not
seem to fit him very well, and fn which he
seemed to have difficu'-ty in adjusting him
self comfortably. His hair, (where it was
not .missing was black and long, and pro
traded'at the "base" like the starched
pinafore of a child. He aflected a certain
primness, and suggested an old time peda
gogue. When he spoke he made frequent
gestures, which were well timed, moderate
and effective. features are not great
ly unlike those of William J. Biyan. El
bort Hubbard makes no pretense at ora
tory, but confines himself to a conversa
tional style of address. Like his discour
ses in the Philistine, that disconcerting
periodical which he publisher, his address
was largely along ethical and philosophi
cal lines lie described in a humorous

Letter From Missouri, By W111. SliiVes
to the Tail ObserTer.
CkawfordCounty Ohserver,
"f 'AJ&t
Dear Sir:—
When I left Crawford county I prom
ised some of my .friends that they
should hear from me through the col
umns of your valuable paper and no
doubt you are feeling disappointed by
this time, but I want something to talk
about before beginning. As I have been
liying in north Missouri almost ten
months I believe I amSeapable of stat
ing to the Observer and its many
readers who are my friends, some im
portant facts pertaining to north Miss
First I will say that I am well pleas
ed with the county, which 13 all 1 ex
pected it to be. am located in Char
iton county, three miles.north of the
town of Salisbury which is on the main
line of the Wabash Railroadjand has a
population of 3,000 and is one of ttfe
fcist towns between tSt. tLouis and
Kansas City. The distance to Chicago
is 410 miles, 1(59 miles to'St Louis, 108
miles to Kansas City and 242 miles to
Omaha, so you will readily^see that we
have all the privileges jthat are neces
sary to the popular markets. Our rates
to Chicago'on stock are Sljcents, to
St. Louis 14 cents, to Kansas City 124
cents. This is a good stock country
and a much batter grade of stock th.in
I expected to see here. We can grow
any kind of crops here that we could
grow iii Iowa and more of them and
have more time to do general farm
work here than you have in Iowa. We
have a heavier soil here than Ioiva soil
and it is a trifle harder to plow but all
it wants is good farming and the results
will be satisfactory. Clover grows fine
tiere. both red and white, blue grass Is
a native, of this country and timothy
grows as high as my head. Bat we do
not have a good ciass of farmers here
and they are not inclined to do any
thore work than is necessary to'make a
living. All this country wants is more
Iowa and Illinois farmers here to show
those natives what can be done with
this country. There is in my mind a
great chance here for speculation in
land. There is land here that cau be
bought from $35 to 845 per acre that
seems to me well worth the money. Our
couatry is more or less underlaid with
il' many places th6 coal is sticking
his work, gave us a brief preliminary_criti- Rood coal at $1,70 per ton. On our
lism of the. speaker whom.he had heard on streams we have a choice grade of hard
I former occasions. He said "He has some
top of the ground. I can buy
timber which is being sawed into
lumber by our local saw mills. This
lutnbsf can be bought from $12* to $15
pjr thousand which, of coursa, would
look cheap to an Iowa man. So taking
all thiufTd into consideration, there is
no excuse for the man thatpoea hungry
here. People here live well and live
easy and a,l seem to eD]oy life real well.
There are many farmers here living on
40 or 80 acre farms and seem to make a
srood living. But, for myself, I still
b. lieve in the old Iowa style, that is, to
buy plenty of land to raise plenty, of
corn to feed plenty of cattle to buy
more land. We have 480 acres of land
and are handling 175 head of cattle and
Joing business in the usual old way and
Russia anti Japan happen to need
iny of my beef I will try and have some
ro spare.
Now if any of my friends should take
ny exceptions to what I have written
feel like coming down to see Mis
uri 1shoul be pleased to see them
Hid I assure you will do my best to
ntertain them and to show them our
i»untry." ??yJ

itrons the compliments of the ISTeyir
