THE PACIFIC COMMEKCIAL ADVKKTISKK: IIOSOLl'LU. JULY L'7f 10!.
THll PACIFIC f ommerdal Advertiser. W, N. ARMSTRONG EDITOR. "THURSDAY JULY 2G 3I0KK ABOUT SKXATOK DKPKW. There are three college mates of -Chauncy Dein w living here. They find it i most fascinating subject to review the career of a young fellow who was "one of the boys" in the college days, and In due time becomes one of the most influential politicians of his State. the president of the richest railway corporation in America, and also one of the most celebrated orators of the times, it is the first union of exalted fKwitions in American history. In look ing over the "Birthday Addresses" of this remarkable man there is much to be found that should be read by every young man. For, after all, it is the talk of the doer and not of the preach er that takes hold of young men. And it is not Depew, the railroad president only that attracts them, but the man who, knowing much of life, instructs men and women and children. He Bays in a late address that men have said that his long personal pros perity fral unfitted him to understand the limitations of the ordinary wage earner tin t'he pursuit of happiness. Read his reply: "This is not the case. Happily for me my" father, a success ful man with an iron will' and a fixed purpose, having given me a university education and a profession, threw me out with the remark that I would never 'have another dollar from him, except in his will. But for that ap parent cruelty, we would not be here tonight. There was not a hard time possible in the experience of early struggles which did not come to me. The old gentleman would sit in his room with 'the tears strolling down his cheeks at my difficulties and hardships, .but he never relented nor rendered one particle ot assistance. Twice, through -over confidence in friends, and a fatal weakness for endorsements, my accu mulations have been swept away and a load of debt assumed. It was after all these struggles and misfortunes that a rule of life was suggested, the results of which have been so happy that they easily form a code for en joying existence applicable to every .condition of life." iMr. Depew, then refers to Epictetus, who Avas the slave of a, Roman, who .broke his slave's leg, because a slave "got more pleasure lit of life than his master with all of his wealth." Then lie continues: "Certainly my owai career is riefh in great disappoint ments which have proved significant blessings." "The best informed, allround man, and the most contented, I ever knew, was ' barber. He was a success as a Jjarber; he would have failed as a mer chant. His shop kept him comfortably, anxl furnished a surplus which, with great discrimination, he invested in a library, every book in which and every author in which was his intimate and familiar friend. He was the encyclope dia of his neighborhood to the preachers, lawyers, and the students; and instead of wearying his customers with ivahiable suggestions as to his pa tent for restoring their hair on the outside of their heads, no customer ever. left the chair without getting something of value lodged in his head.' "Another man whom I watched from early boyhood to middle age, was a :araran in my native village who had a vital faith in the doctrine that what ever is for the best, and comes from on high, and though 'his troubles were many, his soag in the street, as he trundled by with his load, was an an them of joy, .ringing through the houses and fairly causing the clams In the bottom of his gon to open their Shells. His infectious, happiness, loudly proclaimed in the weekly prayer meet ing, dieted saints and sinners out of themselves to a closer contact with their better selves and a clearer vision of the Pearly gates tind the Golden streets." Mr. Depew only reissues with his etamp on it, the current coins of wis dom of all the ages, but one takes and looks at it, when it is thrown out by the hand of a man, whom many re gard as the most successful all round in America. He, with oceans of wealth lapping at his feet, standing on the heights ; of personal popularity and oratorical fame. Surely not. For if modern society gave its opinion aoout the matter, it would shout with thun der tones: "no contented barbers for as," and the business men will sav these maxims about contentment are like the gongs the Chinese use in war, not 'intended for fighting purposes, but admirable contrivances for keep ing up the courage. FUEK THE SAILOR. There is now an excellent chance for those who denounce the penal con tract labor system to protect the Amer ican sailor. Deserters from the vessels 'Antiope" and "Amphitrite" have been arrested for violating the labor laws of the United States which concern shipping. The American tar is de prived of his freedom. He must enter Jail and abide with the Galicians. And precisely for the same reasons. If hu-, manity calls for the frexlom of the ; Galicians, so does it call for the f ree- ' av Solve dom of the American sailor. The penal contract labor law is an abominaiion. Why is not the penal shipping act an abomination alo? MQUI1) AIR AVOIDED A "31 ESS There is still another aspn-t of the Constitutional question, which the gentlemen who believe in the present the Problem of the White Race and the Tropics. In the July number of the Forum th Hon. Truxton Deale states that we may reasonably expect the time to com' when science, in the beneficent garb'of I liquid air and solid water, will rend.-r ' '.he air of rooms in tropical abodes as cool as the bracing air of mountain . tops, says the Chicago Tribun Hv means of steam plows, steam thresh ers and modern seeders the farmer also crotfula SUB-DIVISION OF YllE mm IIOISTEAD. existence of the Constitution over this 'will ..n - ... , '.uuuiru iu i-uiuiuie uie icriiie territory would do well to consider. ; lands of the tropics with less danger local Supreme Court had do-;1" neaiin tnan "was encountered by ins iainer piowinc the vallev r.f ti, ----- v V If our cided that the Election of duties on a nnarlnr ttt - ' Wa basli jrrnrl imnrrtffl tr rlipp Tln n 1 frvm 'o-i. .

An importer of such goods in San Francisco would show a copy of deci sion to the Collector of Customs of that port and demand a free entry of the goods. If the decision is good law in one case, it is good law in the other case. The Collector would at once open his eyes and then telegraph, the i facts to the Secretary of the Treasury. What would the Secretary reply? "Obey the decision of the Territorial court?" or "Collect duties. Territorial court has no jurisdiction?" Does any lawyer believe that the Secretary of the Treasury would pay the slightest regard to the decision of the Territorial court and remit the duties in the United Sta'tes because they were do mestic goods? We should have, then, the Territorial court holding that do mestic goods at either port are free goods, wihile the Secretary of the Treasury is holding, at tho samo tlmo that they are subject to duty. Or, in other words he would reverse the de cision of our court on the Constitu tional point, and follow the Newlands Resolution. Our Supreme Court, if it had so decided would now be the laughing stock of lawyers and judges besides exasperating the Executive in Washington. One can imagine the smile in President McKinley's Cabinet, when the Secretary announced: "Gen tlemen, the Supreme Court of our new little Territory has declared one pro vision of the Newlands act unconsti tutional. Next Ave shall have some local Philippine court or a local Porto Rico court, or a local Alaska court, or a looal Arizona court telling us we are violating the Constitution." Our Territorial court has sense enough to avoid laying down a prin ciple which would, if it could be en forced, compel the Secretary of the Treasury to remit all duties on Ha waiian goods entered at San Francisco. Such would be the absurd predicament if our court had adopted the views of these gentlemen. The Advertiser chal lenges the lawyers "to show how it could be otherwise. If a decision of the Federal courts is really wanted, it can be had easy enough. And the sooner the better. AVe claim that we are under the an nexation act entitled 'to laws extend ing the Constitution to these Islands. This, we understand, is President Mc Kinley's view, may yet minimize their effect, just as we have already done with many dis eases of the temperate zones."
