Washington, D. C., June 26.—The
most recent report ot the consul at
Barcelona shows a case of carrying
coals to New Castle. He reports that
a cargo of 5,500 tons of iron ore was
shipped into Philadelphia from Bilbao,
the Spanish city that has gained con
siderable notoriety from the fact that
It shipped 10,000 tons of steel rails to
Mexico, winning the contract In com
petition with the United States Steel
corporation. Bilbao since that first
shipment has been content to rest on
its laurels, but Vizcayn has come to
,the front with a shipment of 3,500 tons
ialso destined tor Mexico. The consul
'does not pretend to indicate whether
this is merely a. sporadic outbreak by
Spanish manufacturers or whether it
Is to be a continuous performance.
Practically all the opposition to the
passage of the Lake Erie and Ohio
river ship canal has arisen from the.
fact that democratic senators cannot
get Jt out of their heads that the pro
"posed waterway is a scheme on the
part of''the Pennsylvania-railroad to
'get another line between Pittsburg
and the lake ports and one of such
a character as to prevent very serious
competition with it The same kind
•of suspicion prevails among deino
dfatlc members of the house. The
^suspicion arises from the general im
pression that the big railroad com
f^pany counts the state of Pennsylvania
and all her. representatives in both
JL ri dbnwiwi of conigress funong its
?rhe muck rakers have industriously
f^yVllnstllled that idea in the mind of the
r.^k^seneral public. At times things have
#M* |liappened that might have afforded
fe&Ji&jIground for a suspicion that the Penn
|lp |:^|sylvania had a right to so count the
P^Sartate and its servants but the so-called
i^MSSBourbons are slow, even'when things
^'Milipare so plain In learning that a new
^condition has arisen in the Keystone
sl^-cdmmonwealth. They will probably
"'l^^^dlscover -that there has been a change

PP Senator Knox, during-the debate on
-tf-^-^the canal charter bill, has shown him

ffeof fun with him.
$!p' Senator Bacon was using some old
^{gfrfigures In a pamphlet issued^ by the
„,#£canal company at the end of 1904
•??')§1which represented estimates made
probably a year before, when prices
•'fj.ifor labor and materials were much
lower than they are now. The Geor
I'/Mglan was gloating oyer the Pennsyl
L'' avanian'when the latter arose to re
g^mark that he supposed that the sena

reported the billy
"But I had a right to assume that
what was placed on my desk by the
S authority of the senator from Penn
,/sylvanla was correct," said the "Geor
.^glan smiling at his colleague and per
mlttlng the point to penetrate.
JCJ® "The information given therein is
/. correct," said Mr. Knox, "but the sen
•skft ator from Georgia will notice that it
•"is"' dated 1904 while the report was
made this year."
"But I certainly have a right to as
sume that what the senator-plitces be
fore me is acteurate Information*' in
sisted Mr. Bacon.
"Oh, yes," answered the Keystone
senator, "but I am simply trying to
., add a little later Information to the
stock of the senator from Georgia.
But'of course he'is not required to ac

A brilliant critic in "The Saturday
Review" puts his finger on a serious
flaw In Mrs. Humphry Ward's im
agination—a flaw which he is not the
first to perceive. "A constant element
In her stories," he says, "is something
which it may seem harsh, but Is,
nevertheless, exact to call Snobbery
snobbery of all degrees, from the most
elementary to the most exalted and
rarefied. It appears in various shapes.
^Sometimes it is the intellectual snob
bery of pedantry. That appears in
the present tale ("Fenwlck's Career")
in what concerns the painter's life
and Ideas. With all her knowledge
and intelligence, Mrs. Ward betrays
that she remains outside ofV her
knowledge, here. The social snob^
bery is more poisonous, th« assump
tion appearing not fbr the first time
in her stories that the solution of
problems not only of manners but of
life and speculation is to be found'In
the companionship of the socially ex
alted, with the borollary that those
who are 'wrong' about social con
ventions cannot be 'right' about any
thing else. The flaw' hero, which
would require considerable space to
Illustrate, 1b the more annoying be
cause Mrs. Ward has a keen, indeed
a cruel, eye for small social difficul
ties, and if the comic vein were pos
sible to her might do great things in
the manner of the 'Man from Blank
ley's.' Worst of all is this moral:
snobbery that makes an Idol of Mme.
de Pastourelles." This novel the

Mayesville Instltate's Efforts la
Behalf of Yoaag Negroes.
The woman farmer Is. not yet so
common as not to be an object of con
siderable Interest to the public. Never
theless, there Is a large class of woman
termer*- In^ the South-that has escaped
ttention. The Mayesville educational
industrial institute a school for
colored boys* and girls at Mayesville,
S. C., is turning them out by the score
every year, and they make splendid
farmers. Agriculture is a regular part
of the curriculum here, and the girls
do .everything that the boys do except
ploughing. They love it, too, and when
they, go home they revolutionize the
methods of farming employed by their
fathers and brothers.
The principal of the institute, Miss
Emma J. Wilson, who is now |n New
York, is a practical farmer and her
greatest delight is the farmers' con
ference, which meets at Mayesville
every year and to which the colored
people come from far and near. Miss
Wilson is the president of the confer
ence, and the most expert of the
farmers acknowledge her their mis
tress. Miss Wilson does not know how
she came to be such a good farmer.
She supposes it must have come
naturally to her, for she never learn
ed. She began heT agricultural and
pedagogical career at the same tlmer
one her return from Scotia Seminary.
"When I came back to our poor
little cabin," she told a Tribune re
porter, "I was ashamed of it I told my
mother that I wished we had a nicer
place to live in, and she said we could
not afford anything better. I didn't
believe that so I went to work to
cultivate the little land we had. As I
was able to I got more land, and be
fore long I was able to build a house.
I carried on the farm for six years,
but by that time my school was tak
ing so much of my time that I had to
give it up.
"The school I started at the same
time as I did the farm. I expected
eventually to become a missionary, but
I saw that this work needed to be
done, and I decided to do it while I
waited. I never saw the time, how=
ever, when'I was ready to give it up.
I began with ten pupil3 in a shed, and
for years no one ever knew where to
find us, for. the reason that we were
always moving. We went where we
could get quarters rent free, and some
times we would be notified in the
evening that we must move next day.
But I- never closed the doors for a
day, and from 1882
to 1882 I carried
on the work alone.
"Then we had a chance to get a
house and a farm of sixty-seven acres,
and a little later we were Incorporated
las the Mayesville Educational and
Industrial Institute."
It is a good thing for the institute
that it has a farmer for its principal,
for It has never attracted the at
tention of any wealthy philanthropist
and the farm goes a long toward pay
ing its expenses, besides serving as
a means of education to the pupils.
The 'running expenses last year were
only $2,600, and this paid the salary
of twenty teachers, exclusive of the
principal, who gets no salary. Miss
Wilson says that if the school only
had all the building and equipment
that it needs it could be entirely self
supporting, and she has now come
North for the purpose of getting these
things. At present the school is ter
ribly handicapped for lack of room and^
tools to work with. During the last
year 145 pupils had to be refused
admittance and1 the girls' dormitory
has grown so small that the smaller
pupils are sleeping three in a bed,
or, in times of, unusual stress, four in
a bed. The woman teachers, too, must
make this their home, an arrangement
which not only takes up room that
the girls need, but is a great incon
venience otherwise. Miss Wilson
would, like to build a new wing to the
dormitory this summer, and could do
so for $2,000, for the boys would do
'the greater part of thi| work. A thou
sand dollars is wanted to enlarge the
main building and $3,000 for a
teachers' home. Five hundred of the
latter amount has already been raised,
a considerable part of the sum having
been contributed by the white people
of Mayesville.
Besides this. Miss Wilson wants im
proved machinery for the new brick
yard, and she greatly longs for a print
ing press so that the school can publish
a little paper and keep its, work con
stantly before the public. She can
also use almost anything in the way
of clothing Or household furnishings,
no matter how useless things may
seem to persons accustomed to plenty.
"Some think that things are not
good enough to send to ,us." she said
to a friend who had refrained from
making a contribution for this rea
son. "We can use anythifig."
The work at Mayesville is conduct
ed on much the same, line as that of
Tuskegee, but developed quite inde
"The school simply grew out of the
conditions," Miss Wilson says, "and I.
saw. from the beginning that some
thing more than mere/book education
was wanted." The enrollment at the
Mayesytlle institute is about five hun
dred, most of the .number being day
pupils. The boys are .taught trades of
various kinds In addition to the more
ordinary branches of education, and
the girls are Initiated Into all the
mysterleB of housewifery. The officers
