It will be remembered that the Cunningham claims were the central factor in the controversy which raged under the administration of Secretary Garfield and again under that of Mr. lialliiiger. The claims apply ti it is suppiist'd, A Reporter's Aeroplane Ride J There are plenty of reporter- at the aviation meets, but as the;r observa tions are usually made from terra firma. we have so far had very few acounts of how it really feels to tlv.

The situation is one which is likely within a to affect the whole of the coal trade of the Pacific C Canal is opened to affect the coal trade generally. As it would take action by congress to get anything done toward placing the matter in the hands of the courts, the opportunity will be open for an extremely bitter struggle on the floor in which the wh'ole Ballinger-Pinchot controversy can be aired. This controversy is in a very delicate situation, at the present time, owing to the widely different reports made yesterday by the majority and minority of the investigating committee. It was known, vf course, that at least two reports would be offered by different sections of the- committee at the opening session of congress, and news comes from Washington that intriguing in behalf of each side of the controversy lias been under way foe come weeks. It would be considered unfortunate for the administration to afford another opportunity to pti-h this matton promi nently before the public. a would be the case were legislation asked for. comparatively short time, ;ist. and when the Panama conservation and j motion cioanv win. to think about. ami graphic writer.

The sensath'ii of anticipation is not unlike the feeling that one has when one is waiting for a wounded boar to l.reak cover from the corner into which he is driven.

The earth in this case the sward of the Lanark racecourse seemed to be racing away from under us, and in a Hash we were level with the first pylon and the judge's box. "The machine was now up to ISO feet, and 1 became engrossed in Mr. Grace's method in flying. It seemed to me that his attention was glued n his elevating-plane, with just moment ary glances out of his eye to judge the distance by which he had to shun each pylon in its turn. We were now cross ing fields and water. I could observe the gates, the wire fences, and a man bathing in the water. Then we were round into the wind, (fur pace imme diately slackened, and Mr. Grace was working to keep his machine in the air. As we crossed a rad we were going so slowly that I could observe atelv outline,! in an article on me mr-t eign spv bugaboo by Gardiner Mack :u i opuiar .vi.ee na in es ior i 'ecein hit.

This list contained the names Xif pe who would "bite"' at anything offered them in tin scheme, if the list was at all representative it must have been a long one. One of the discouraging signs of the times is the eagerness .wit h which temptations for reckless investments prevail. Not only inexperienced women and young men just out if school, but men of mutiny years and some success sometimes snap up propositions that should not, on their very face, deceive anybody. The love of money is the root of a good deal of credulity. . - - Through error, either in the Associated Pre-s oliice in San Francisco or in the cable transmission, a recent message was received by The Advertiser and published to the effect that Secretary Uallinger was the author vf a ship subsidy hill, which he expected would be passed during this session of congress. Instead of the bill being from Secretary Ballinger, however, mail advices show that it is the bill formerly presented iu the senate by Senator Gallinger. dust how Secretary Hallinger was to have a hill presented in the senate was not apparent, but the Associated message received was clear enough.

The judge might have gone further ami annouunced that the making of agreements between the lawyers for the prosecution and those for the defense that, if a jdea of guilty were made sentence would be suspended, has also got tv stop. It leads to sn-picion and it also gives the city attorney's department the power to be not only the prosecuting department of the gov ernment but the sentence imposing part as well. Every week, a dozen or so. notices which the writers would like to see appear in the Ivcal coliimn of this paper, are thrown in the wastepaper basket because the ones writing them have not seen fir to follow the yle of this paper iu their communications. If a notice is worth being printed, it is worth being properly written by the one it benefits. A few minutes devoted to studying notices that do appear will shvvv others how to write. The Advertiser office is a busy place and there is no time to spare to correct other people's mistakes, made week after week. Ihmolulans are uniformly considerate. This is a trait generally shared and one for which the citizens of this city are noted at home and abroad. P.ecause of this de-ire to be considerate, Ilouohilaiis will do their Christmas shopping early and will not unite iu one grand rush during the last two or three davs, when Jerks wil overworked, the chance of a good -election will be b the possibility of disappointment more.

Ac cording to the annual report of Adjt. ( Gen. Ainsw.irth, there are 4. 310 otlicers ! and fi7.4o!t enlisted men in the regular ihe war department or th army and ;i otlicers and "r.liti.t enlisted j ment and their desires an men in the Philippine S.-outs. making j I'11'''1 with- This is a itli'tti" a total of 4.470 otlicers and 7l.'.."i."i!t en- ! listed men. not including .'!,ls0 enlisted i men of the Hospital Corps, hut includ- ; ing If'7 first lieutenants of the Med'oa! ! I'eserve Corps on active duty. The I commanding generals of a majority of j jth" geographical military departments, I as in previous years, invite attention m i their annual re; orts t the shortage of! oliicers due tnanily to the relatively large numl-rs of oliicers absent from their comma mis on detached service. From these reports it appears that l!-"."!! per cent of the ! ne oliicers and lo.f,7 per cent of the general and staff oliicers were al sent from their com mands. Of the (U-2 line otlicers on de tached duty. ")'"). or 4 per cent, were captains or lieutenants. .. Reductions in Desertions. " Tn the matter of desertions, the nd- infant general says that the condition that confronts the government is a very grave one. The ollieial returns show ".111 desertions from tht1 enlisted force during the past fiscal year. This num ber is :J,.r,ii per cent of the whole number of enlisted men in service, or of en listment contracts in force, during that year. The number is Mn.fi per cent less than the number of desertions during the preceding fiscal year. The adjutant general says that the 'eduction in the desertion ratio is un doubtedly due to the continuance of svsfemat'c a ml vigorous efforts to ap prehend and punish deserters. The regiments serving in the United States that had the lowest percentages of desertions during the year were the 21th Infantry and the lblh Cavalry, both colored organizations. The regi men s with the highest percentage-: of desertions were the 4th Field Artillery, the sfh Tnfantrv and !th Cavalry. Of the white troops 11.77 per cent and of the colored troops hut 1" per cent were reported as deserters, as compared with o.oVi per cent for the whole army. Compared With British Army. Comparative tables show, the adju tant general says, that the desertion rate of our colored troops compares favorably with the very low desertion rate of the P.ritish army, and that both of these rates are very mtn-h lower than the .lescitioii rate of our white troops. "Ina-mtich as our colored soldier-, including tho-e who desert as well as those who do not," says the adjutant general, "are treated in every way pre- nit white sonnei-s, i: s labor- Expert witnesses are allowed to give evidence as to what is their opinion, and hence are out of the reach of an indictment for perjury, which always hangs over the head of the ordinary witness, who can testify to fact Qiily. Apropos of this, there used to he a --.aying current, years ago. of a judge who recogi ized three degrees in liars: the liar simple, the d d liar, and the expert witness. There is another ver sion which is of interest namely, the three degrees of liars, which are said to he the liar, the d d liar, and the mining engineer. Rebuke to the Technicians. The Outlook.
