THIS PACIFIC CU.M.MKHCIAL A I V KUT1SKII: HO.OULL JCLY . 1W.
4 n i 1 If ft i ! i i 1 1 TUB PAC1HO oinniercial Advertiser. W. N. ARMSTRONG EDITOR SATURDAY JULY 22 OIIAUNCY I)KPKWS LOUP, Staacor IK pew has for a numb.-r of years addressed t"he four hundred mem bers of the M on tank Club of Brooklyn on th' anniversary cf his birthday. Tiicsf? speeches have now been pub lished in book form, and present the Senator's characteristics as a business man, a politician, a moralist, and a man of the world. lie indulges in these speeches in talks aboa himself -without any display of egotism. He sooms tin say to bis audience: "I h ive knocked about the world more than the most of you have, and I can give you , a iew points. He is a most patriotic American, without being one of the bla1h.erski.te3 on the platform whose- lov-e of country is best expressed in 'w-tiirllng iiie eale above their head and provoking it to scream. He be lieves that the free silver men brought cruel poverty to millions of homes, but the resistless energy and sense of the people will in the end correct political vils. In his views of social life he is most instructive. A few of his words are quoted. "What kills people is worry worry for that which they do not want and do not need. I have seen hundreds of men who (had passed middle life and who were assured competence for the rest of their days, launch into speculation, lose their fortunes and die of worry." "Do not let deceptions destroy con fidence in the real 'honest goodness, generosity,- humanity and friendship that exist in the world. They are over whelmingly in the majority. I have lost twen'ty-five per cent, of all I have ever m'ade in leaning money and en dorsing motes, and have incurred gen erally the enmity of those I have help ed because I did not keep it up. But once in a while there was somebody who did return in suc'h a full measure the credit for the help that was render ed, that faith was kept alive, and the beauty and goodness of our human na ture was made evident. I have ap pointed about one thousand men to office and employment which gave them support and the chance .to climb to positions of greater responsibility and trust if they had the inclination and ability. About nine out of ten of them throw stones at me, because I did not do better for them, and keep pushing them, and yet there are a .hun dred or so who by the exercise of their own ability, their own grasp of the situation, have gone on to the ac complishment of such high ambitions and successes, that again my faith 'in human nature remains undiminished." The Senator makes this remark in one of his speeches: "I have been impressed during a re cent tour over eight thousand miles, with the fact that we as Americans .know less (about each other than Ave do about foreign countries." -tle suggests- that there should be a depart ment cl government to teach congest ed population where they can find air, health, wealth and liberty. Some of the thoughtful writers dur ing the . last few years, tell us that the American people put a higher va lue upon the promoters of industrial success than they, do upon the teachers lit religion and morals; that the stain of sin fades before the color of gold; that the "jingle of the guinea" drowns the ringing cf the church bells. Of the founder of, a polygamous colony in America, which s usually described as a "blot on our civilization," Senator Depew said: "Strange as it may appear, the his torian in looking over our century and eating the benefactions of our country, will fiVe a plae, and a good one, to Iirighani Young. He saw that if he brought water from the mountains and distributed it on the plain, he could produce an earthly paradise for his vo-religionists. He also discovered that the real secret of successful farm ing is n. small farm which the farmer and his family can look after personal ly and attend to every detail. Utah is the most prosperous of inter-montane States and Salt Lake Ms the largest eity." But Mormonism gave Young his great opportunity. In Stockton's re cent history of the "Buccaneers in America," he mentions a bloodthirsty "missionary" pirate, who plundered ships and then founded churches with the proceeds. Is this benevolent pirate to be reckoned also among the benefactors of mankind? Why cannot wiicked men be compelled by law to be .'either good or bad? Senator Depew does not like to say that the sood which Brigham Young did is owing to a "mysterious Providence." He states the fact that this polygamous founder really did more good in the world than millions of men who -were not poly gamous. But he does not clear up the matter. These speeches will be referred to again. NICARAGUA CANAL. Rear Admiral Francis J. Higginson says, "It is astonishing, in view of the s? i :;ris consequence: involved, with what indifference and pro ra.s; ination the project oi ine .Nicaragua canal seems to be enveloped." The truth is that behind this ever- lasting talk about the necessity for the canal, there is a strong suspicion that its construction may giva more " ct,.-. .w ijinu LLiaii L-.j . iii'-i i j.. Uncle Sam does not like to be "taken in." He cannot keep th? cana! to himself, and he fears that Hritish com - merce will have the best of it, it lie . bill makes it obligatory to cr:m;e jn constructs it. The shipping men un- j all eases where .1 m!i is due :. ir ins derstand the embarrassing i;:ai:on, mis-vib! ilise.ies. such as small but do not openly oppose the canal j scarlet fever and tuberc u!:.---.. project. Senator Daniel saitl: ' Uuild The sooner we realize tli ' fa. t up our marine service first, and then ' we lie at the cross ways of ihe Pa. il open a canal. Why open it first and let tho Dritish use it, until we have created a marine ?2ivic??' Aim tm trans-ccntinental railway companies say: "It is wicked and un-American to take the traffic away frcm railroads which are owned by Americans, and Eire tho tramc , fo,-eiBn 8hi,. it is iiol (iimcuu in explain the rea- son why the canal project is not push ed, although it should be, in the in terests of all commerce. THK CH1.NKSK AD WAYS. Mm. m m .ma aj ,r. . . . thousands of armed Chinese peas-1 ants living near Kiaochou have unitetl I 'and tried to destroy the railway which the Germans are building. The Ger man infantry shot a number of the rioters. We despise these peasants because they 'are ignorant, but we also forget that there were riots in Germany many years ago after the railways were con structed. The potato rot anncared in Prussia the year after one line was constructed, and the peasants believed that the railway Drought the rot. Several attempts were made to tear up the tracks. A good many of the New England farmers protested against the construction of railways because they might, it was believed, decrease the value of horses. Within twenty years. a mob of farmers in Eastern Marv- land tore up the tracks of a. railway because they might increase the price of negro labor in the eastern part of the State. The civilized races are only a generation in advance of the Chinese in this respect. The racial habit is weaker in the Anglo-Saxon than in the Chinese. Twenty years ago the Chinese bought from the En glish owners the new railway betwe3n Shanghai 'and Woosung. The rails and locomotives were carried to an island and made into a rubbish heap. To-day new rails are laid, and there is a large traffic in which the Chinese share. Mr. Brice who has recently surveyed a route through middle China says the Chinese will approve of the railways after they have once "smelt of them like horses," and find that they do not breed wicked spirits. CREMATION IN EX 1 LAND. The people of England are beginning to take a serious view of the subject of cremation. This method of dispos ing cf the dead would relieve the poor of a burden of expense, and sanitary ' conditions dem'and it.
