R. J. Shannon, Manager, Brunswick
"lulldiug, New Vork, N. Y.
Trustee Hilton M. Letts. of the
slate college, and resident of the Kirs I
district, near the fountain-head of all
political inspiration in the reserva
tion, ha-s stated tho proposition in
brief and In fullness. In Dos Moines
this week he predicted the election of
Senator Allison, declaring that "the
election of Mr. dear for a second term
was an adequate precedent."
Now Mr. Letts may not have been
conscious of it at the time, but he has
covered the whole argument in a very
few words. The election of Mr. Clear
was an "adequate" precedent, so ade
quate. in fad. that when the people »f
Iowa recall th.Ti spectacle they grow
Impatient at any further argument.
Mr. Oear'js re-election was forced
from a legislature by the power of
railway Influence in politics. At the
time he miade the campaign lie was in
Ills dotage. So pathetic was his
senility that men turned away in dis
gust from a system of politics that
would impose a tottering old man upon
a great state for its I'nlted Stales sen
ator. When lie was stood up in the
hotel at Des Moines to receive polit
ical callers, one trusted lieutenant
was sLationed on one side to keep him
from falling and another on the other
side to recall the names of men who
had be.n lirelong acquaintances to
Gear, but whose face.s were lost to him
in the maze of a fleeting memory. The
deed was done. The midnight caucus
held and the re-election accomplished
for the sole purpose of keeping Cum
mins out of the senate, but Nature had
not been consulted. She evidently did
not approve of Hiythe's program, for
she tailed the old man to his fathers
before he could enter upon the new
terin to which he had been re-elected.
Talk about the Gear precedent being
"adequate" what more could be de
After diligent inquiry Hradstivefs
has conic to the conclusion that of all
the business failures last year, fully 8
per cent of tln-m were due to causes
wholly witihin the individual, while
about one-fifth were due to causes
over wliich the individual did not have
control. Among the faults of the in
dividual and in the order of their im
portance are numbered "ipcompe
tency." "inexperience.*' "lack of capi
tal." "unwise granting of credits,"
"outside speculations." "neglect of bus
iness." "personal extravagance." and
fraudulent "disposition of property."
So we have it in cold statistics that
the two first causes of business fail
ures are the incompetency and inex
perience of the men who engage. Then
the next in importance with five other
causes trailing behind, is the lack of
capital. The average banker will in
sist that this should .have come first.
Certain it is that the lack of sufficient
capital Is the greatest cause of dis
tress to those already In business and
it is not surprising to learn that it
ranks foremost among the known
causes of failure.
The causes over which the individual
ihas no control but which have pro
duced (business failures are only three
in number, "specific conditions," "fail
ure of others" and "competition." It
would seem that Incompetency con
sisted largely in one's inability to meet
competition -and that "specific condi
tions" were the very problems which
men were expected to solve in busi
ness in order to prove their competency
so that in actual fact the only cause
of failure outside of some fault of the
individual wou-ld be the failure of oth
ers and even this Is .guarded against
by the far-seeing. Business failure
Is one of the great tragedies of life,
against which Is pitted a large portion
of our education. There is a long ser

Mr. Ketchum has tackled a propo

When the framers of the Dingley
law reached oil they virtuously put it
on the free list. But to get even with
Russia, which produces practically all
of the oil the United States does not,
they added:
"Provided, That if there be imported
into'the United States crude petroleum,
or the products of crude petroleum,
produced in any country which imposes
a duty on petroleum or its products
exported from the United States, there
shall in such cases be levied, paid, and
collected a duty upon said crude petro
leum or its products so imported equal
to the duty imposed by such country."
Russia, to protect its oil monopoly
from the Standard monopoly, of
course, levies a duty. Thus automat
ically and noiselessly, and as tho
the wheels had themselves been oiled,
the Dingley law operates to prevent
the only competition in this market
the Standard oil trust could have.
And so last year we made Russia pay
$35,963 for the privilege of giving us
competition, or at the rate of 5.4
cents per gallon on the crude and 2.34
on the refined.

Horrigan tho Deserter.
"Horrlgan has been captured," was
the news received on Governors Island.
Horrigan was an Inveterate deserter,
and altho every conceivable decora
lion is tatooed on him, he has managed
to fool tho recruit:ng officers of the
irmy and navy for fifteen years, in
which time he has enlisted thirteen
times In the army, each time under a
different name, but always with the
telltale tattoo pictures on his body.
Horrlgan's desertions soon became
such regular events and caused so
much trouble to the officers who had
:lie misfortune to have him in their
commands that when he deserted for
the thirteenth time, General Alnsworth
adjutant general of the army, took
charge personally of the work of re
'apturing him.
Tho description of the deserter,
which was sent to every army post
from New York to the Presidio and
from the Gulf to Jackson Barracks in
New Orleans, was the most complete
•ver sent out by trie adjutant general's
department of the army. The circular
said that Horrlgati was between 30 and
35 years old, and was so liberally tat
tooed that his identification should
prove easy, and that from previous ex
perience he would again apply for en
listment soon.

The central picture represented a .prize
fight, the picture showing the pugilists
hammering away at each other and the

being the spectators and seconds of
tho fighters.
Horrlgan's right arm according to
the Alnsworth rcular, is even gaud
ier than his chest. On this arm there
is the picture of a heart, a knife, a.
wreath of flowers, a Maltese cross, and
a girl swinging from a trapeze. The
left arm is decorated with two clasped
hands, a reproduction of the aurora
borealis, a star and a. shield. On the
back of the left hand is a star.
