TH E colonel was in his best vein when addressing the Sorbonne.
He gave no quarter to the mollycoddles~and showered con
tempt on that which is known as the ''leisure class," an institu
' j tion scarcely yet domesticated on this con
tinent. He expounded to this learned body
his well known theories of the strenuous life.
He became eloquent in denunciation of race
_ suicide, and said some words that- should be
heeded in other countries than France. For example:
If we of the great republics, if we, the free people who claim to
have emancipated ourselves from the thralldom of wrong and error,
bring down on our heads the curse that comes upon the willfully barren,
then it will be an idle waste of breath to prattle of our achievements,
to boast of all that we have done. No refinement of life, no delicacy
of taste, no material progress, no sordid heaping up of riches, no
:*ensuous development of art and literature, can in any way compensate
for the loss of the great fundamental virtues; and of these great funda
dsmenta! virtues the greatest is the race's power to perpetuate the race.
What to do about the "useless rich?" was a question that looked
as big as a house to Colonel Roosevelt. Personally he had no use
whatever for these parasites on society, but he did not appear quite
clear about how to put them to work where they_ might do some
good.
It is a question, indeed, that might puzzle the wisdom of Roose
velt and the Sorbonne combined, but the strange thing is that it is
a comparatively new matter of debate. A brief score of years ago
the idle rich were counted a part of the unchangeable scheme of
the universe. They were usually belauded by other parasites, be
cause "they put money in circulation." As it is now, people are
beginning to speculate whether these parasites have any right to
exist and are quoting scripture td prove that he that will not work
neither shall he eat.

Lloyd George in England has invented a budget to knock them
down and take it away from them, and Colonel Roosevelt announces
that he is willing to go a step or two with the socialists, but he
knows where to stop and put his foot down. The learned doctors
of the Sorbonne were as pleased as Punch and greatly edified.
JOHN S. McGROARTY, whose romantic pen touches nothing
that it does not adorn, welcomes into the union of states the
youngest of commonwealths and at the same time the eldest
" daughter of America — Arizona — in this wise
for the pages of the West Coast magazine :.
Old as Eg3 r pt, or even older, Arizona is yet
as young as yesterday's bloom and blossom on
the peach trees that flame from the deep heart
1 1 of the age forgotten valleys of Cibola. It was
. a populous land before the pyramids were reared as a tomb for Rameses;
its ancient peoples builded cities and wove and spun tapestres and gay
raiment in the sun for lithe bodies as fair as Cleopatra's before Cleopatra
• was born; gold and silver and bronze were smelted and wrought from
its hills into queen's girdles and chieftain's battle i axes when the Teuton
and the Gaul were stiil storiemen; its marvelous engineers had watered
its fertile fields from concrete lined aqueducts and giant irrigation dams
that had fallen to decay and disuse centuries before Montezuma ascended
the throne of the Aztecs. Under the sands of Arizona. lie buried the
walls and towers of vast communal pueblos, the countless inhabitants
of which disappeared into the mi«.ts of oblivion in years that ante
date not onlr history but tradition itself.
How long she slept "like a tawny lion," as Mr. McGroarty says,
no man knows, but it is certain she is now rejuvenated in a recreated
youth, busy with the sound of the miners' pick and the whiz of the
devouring drill. Bisbee. Douglas, Globe, Prescott, Morenci and
other great mining centers astonish the world with their wonderful
output, and the remarkable thing is that each and all of these
"camps" are provided with a nearby agricultural district so that
Arizona "can if she will build a wall around her mighty boundaries
and live within herself secure and opulent though no trade from
without were ever to knock at her gates.''
This result is due to the magic of water, once more applied by
science to give life to these arid wastes. The Roosevelt dam, for
instance, near Phoenix, is accounted one of the most celebrated
irrigation feats of history, and 1 the Salt river Galley is one great
garden studded with orchards. There is another -less material
aspect of the picture:
! Withal, Arizona will remain the land of wonder and of mystery,
the land of faithful skies and of health, for the desert is the sanatorium
of the world. Here are the footprints of the lost and mystic past, thY
deserted homes of ancient cliff dwellers, the hieroglyphs of departed
peoples, the painted desert, the petrified forest, and, finally, the ultimate
wonder of all, the Grand Canyon of Arizona, gashed across an empire
as the last word in the mightiest tragedy nature has ever recorded.
California welcomes this elder and prodigal daughter of America
to the sisterhood of states, and rejoices that she has found in Mr.
Mc£roarty an accomplished prophet and proponent of her multi
farious and profitable charms. It all depends now on congress

WHO will lead the senate after Aldrich retires? It is a ques
tion that agitates Washington in no small degree. There
is an obvious lack of competent leadership among "the
old crowd" of the standpat forces. Senator
Flint might easily have been promoted to the
job had he chosen to>un again for~office and
j won his fight. He was Aldrich's chief lieu-
I tenant in the tariff debate, and he stood so
well with the standpat faction that his retirement is evidence that
he does not believe he could win a 'fight -for; re-election, it is
scarcely conceivable that a young man who had the prospect of suc
ceeding shortly to leadership of the most powerful legislative body
in the world, would voluntarily retire had he not seen a lion in the

Aldrich out. of the way, but he, like the' Rhode Island .. 'senator J

tana and Warren of Wyoming. Warren is a man of very consider
able ability, but he, like Carter, is a standpatter of the extreme type,
and his leadership would amount to a declaration of war.
Lodge of . Massachusetts may- be regarded as eligible if the
standpat element holds control. ' He is a scholarly man, who can
make pretty speeches. His colleague, Crane, is a far abler man, but
suffers from the fact that he is no public speaker and can not hold
his own in debate.
The coming elections may so change the complexion of the
senate that the standpatters will no longer control the republican
majority, and- in that case, the leadership would naturally fall
either one of the lowa pair, Dolliver or Cummins.
The whole situation is clouded with doubt— so much so that
it is now intimated that Aldrich wijl be told that he must reconsider
his purpose to retire. In the public announcements that purpose
was based on "ill health." It is now said that his healthwas never
better. \u0084 - \u0084..., - V ;

CALIFORNIA shows a remarkable growth of the high school
system, and yet the present proportion of high school grad
uates to the whole number of children of school age may be
regarded as small. The fact is that. the state
schools graduate less than 4,0Q0 students
every year, and ten years ago the number was
considerably below 2,000. The . increase is
gratifying, but there is obviously, room for
more.
From the Western Journal of Education we get jthese official
figures of growth for eleven years:

Proportion of
High School
Graduates
It is obvious from these figures that a great many high school
students do not pursue the course to graduation, and some explana
tion of the causes for this failure, should be interesting as well as
instructive. It may be that the high school courses are not what
the world calls "practical," and this quality is what the spirit of the
age demands. The present demand is for more technical schools
and for institutions that teach tlte scientific use of the hands.
The school census for last- year showed 469,410 children _of
school age, that is, between 5 and 17 years. At the same time
the average daily attendance at all the high schools was only 27,470
and the graduates, were 3,771. These figures demonstrate that less
than one-tenth of the children complete the high school course.

The struggle is one of unexampled bitterness, and the feeling is
so strong that fist fights on the floor of the house of commons were
narrowly averted last week, but the budget, as proposed by Lloyd
George, is being remorselessly put through the. regular stages to
enactment, and with it goes the measure to depfi\ti the peers of
their powers of veto on legislation. ' Now the question is, will the
lords accept the situation and^acquiesce, on will they force another
general election? The present belief is that the peers will not sub
mit- and the country .will be ; acutely disturbed by another angry
campaign vthe : next/ three months. This must be the -result
if the lords remaiiv obdurate," but compromise isaHyays possible and;
as Mr. O'Connor points out, the king will be placecl in an extremely
delicate situation if he is forced into the position of arbiter between
the warring £ lords . and com mons. Tlie responsibility of deciding
would -nominally rest on the crown, but,;in fact, hewould haveno

INSURGENTS WIN
FIGHT ON COMET
Motion- to "Bump the Earth
Defeated— Smoker of
'\u0084 House Loses Job
ARTHUR L. PRICE
H ALLEY'S COMET, April 24 (by in
terplanetary wireless). — John
Pierpont Halley's comet is not to
strike the earth. While that decision
seemsysimple enough it-was arrived at
only by the breaking of party lines.
The 'interests wanted to strike the
earth in the vicinity of Wall street, in
the hope that a little gold would stick
in passing, but the Irregular party,
while having no love for Wall street,
considered the welfare of the rest of
the planet and took the stand that it
would, cause more harm than good to
have a collision.
As a consequence of the debate in
congress today, Uncle Big Gun, the
revered Smoker of the House, lost his
job. The Irregulars are casting dice
tonight, for the honor of becoming
Smoker of the House.
When the population of Halley's
comet first caught a glimpse of the
earrth through their telescopes with the
famous 19 mile reflector, it was thought
by the -Higher. Ups that it would be
great sport to work up a collision. The
annual election of Steerersv of the
Comet, the most important position on
the big flyer, was held about the time
the telescope first picked up the earth,
j In the election it was thought that
the Irregulars had. elected their ticket,
but later it appeared that the Chief
Steerer was a regular and would be
tolerably willing to do anything that
the regulars called upon him to do. As
assistant steerers he selected men who
had been employed in the coal yards
of the interests and in other positions.
That is where all the trouble came.
William, the Chief Steerer, was ap
proached early in the year by Uncle
Big Gun, the head smoker of the
House, and by Allrich, leader of the
Senators, with the suggestion that he
aid them in giving the world a jolt.
The Chief Steerer, who is noted as a
man of good nature, laughed amiably,
but said that it wasn't his policy nor
the policy of his illustrious predecessor
(may the African tsetse fly do its
work) to do anything that might re
bound to the disaster of the' Regular
party. However, he intimated that the
Regulars might go as faras they liked
and when it became necessary for them
to resign in- the face of popular dis
satisfaction he would', give them a tes
timonial of honesty of purpose.
In the meantime the Regulars were
busy with their plans. Mr. John Pier
pont Halley, from whom the Comet re
ceives its name, , was daily interviewed
by the press, but was enigmatical.
John Pierpont Halley, as is well known
among the planets, in his private life
is kind and unassuming and would
deprecate any catostrophe such as
would come if the Comet and the Earth
hit each other.
In an interview published in the
Comet's Tale on April 1, the national
holiday of the Comet. Mr. John Pier
pont Halley made the following state
ment:
"As is well known, I am a member
of the established Cometary church,
and have always been known for my
wide beneficences and my interest in
"works of art. It was through no fault
of\mine that this Comft was given my
name. That, fact has come about sim
ply because I came to own a majority
of the. stock- of .the Comet. As for a
collision with the Earth, I do not care
to discuss that now. There are some
men on the Earth whom I may regard
as my colleagues. I believe there are
two who own the Earth — particularly
Mr. Morgan and 1 Mr. Rockefeller— and
for them I have a fellow feeling. I
would hate to think that they might be
injured.
"Still, btisines is business, and there
is no question but that we must find
new markets for our trade and new
lands for our surplus population.
"On these accounts, if the master
minds of this Comet — meaning, you
knbw, Uncle Big Gun and Mr. Allrich
— if they should decide that the needs
of the Comet demanded a collision with
the Earth, I would be the last to go
against their will. I realize that if this
Comet and the . Earth come together
there would be a tremendous loss of
life and property, but as long as that
did not damage my interests or those
of my friends I could not permit that
fact, however grim, to stand in the
way of advancement, particularly since
we are led to believe that ultimately
such p. collision would be of immense
value to civilization and the proprietors
of this Comet, among whom I may
modestly claim to be one."
This indifferent attitude of Mr. John
Pierpont Halley did little to assuage
the fears of the people on the Comet,
for there was a decided lack of faith
in the disinterestedness of Mr. Halley.
The matter came up for decision in
the Cometary House this \u25a0 morning.
Uncle Big Gun, the Smoker of the
House, moved that under the rules the
Chief Steerer and his assistants be in
structed to steer the Comet into the
Earth. The motion was ably supported
by members who" are in Mr. John Pier
pont Halley's employ.
The Irregulars and- the Outsiders
combined and defeated Uncle Big
Gun's motion, and passed another order
prohibiting him from riding his bicycle
on the tall of the Comet. ' ,
The Chief Steerer, made a speech4o
night In which he declared that the
Irregulars had done irreparable injury
to the Comet because they refused to
take orders from Uncle Big Gun. He
said that while he was too good
hearted himself to favor a collision be
tween the Comet and the Earth, and
while he would have advised a revision
downward of the course of the Comet
in passing the Earth, still- the course
decided upon by" the wise : and . rich
Uncle Big Gun and the richer and
therefore wiser Mr. Allrich should be
supported by all men who owe their
fealty to Mr. John Pierpont Halley. j
"Whose Comet is this?" shouted the
Chief Steerer in thundering tones, as
he reluctantly followed the plans of
the Irregulars 'and xevlsed the -course
of the Comet away from the path of
the. Earth. "Whose is ' this but Mr.
John Pierpont Halley's Comet?. Didn't

The Insider
Tells how two men lodged in the same house for twelve
years without becoming acquainted and then met under
circumstances that were taken to indicate burglary.
P]I*y|iSTAKEN identity was carried to
/ V \ the iimit a * cw days aso at tlie
home of a local real estate man,
who -has. two lodgers. The guests had been in the place for a score of years,
but, after the manner of the city, had never met. On returning home at night
one of them decided to sit on the front steps and enjoy the night air.
In time, lodger No. 2 came along and, seeing his fellow lodger on the front
steps, jumped at the conclusion that burglars were in the house and that;
the individual on the steps was a guard or lookout man. jßeing alarmed and
of a mild disposition, lodger No. 2 decided to walk up and down the street
until a policeman showed up. ;" »
Mistaken Identity
Carried to Limit
Lodger No. 1 saw the other marching up and down the street, a;;-!
decided that he was a burglar awaiting an opportunity to enter. Thereforf,
lodger No. 1 decided to remain where he was. For an hour one suspect sat
on the- steps while the other walked the streets. The latter tired of the
exercise and decided to go around the block in search of the police. No
sooner had he turned the corner than the man on the steps rushed into t!:e
house, grabbed a revolver and started in pursuit. Before long he caught op
with No. 2, grabbed him by- the shoulder and, thrusting the gun in his fa .•,
told him to remain quiet until a policeman arrived.
"I'm looking for a policeman myself," said No. 2.
"That doesn't go With me," retorted No. 1.
-Explanations and expostulations followed, and the ultimate result was
that No. 1, still holding the revolver, drove No. 2 to, their home. There the 4
two suspicious characters were introduced as fellow lodgers of a score of
years.
Field Marshal Sees
a Misplaced Button
•When Lord Kitchener was at Sydney hc»*
reviewed the colonial forces, and hi> ap
parent indifference caused some concern
to the titled officers who were escorting the field marshal. Accompanied by
Lord Chelmsford, governor of New South Wales, and a whole string o£
knights and colonels. and generals, Kitchener walked along the ranks of men
and apparently paid no attention whatever to the soldiers. The party re
turned to the reviewing stand. Kitchener suddenly and without a word leu
them and strode rapidly away. In walking along the ranks Lord Chelmsfonl
had noticed a soldier the top button of whose blouse was unbuttoned, and
he thanked his stars for Kitchener's indifference. It wa3 for this soldier,
however,' that Kitchener headed: lie stopped in* front of him, placed the
neglected button in 7 its button hole, smoothed down the blouse and then
returned to the reviewing stand, where he made the following speech:

Dollar Under Mast
Proves Counterfeit
There are .few people who were not acquainted
with the late Commodire Isadore Gutte
of the San Francisco Yacht club and
owner of the trim schooner Chispa. About 15 years ago, when the Chispa
was having new masts put in, the olfl commodore, who was a great believer
in the sea and its traditions, asked a number of friends who were present to
contribute, according to custom, a silver dollar to be put under the foremast.
About $9 was realized, and a man named Brooks, who was then boat keeper.
was instructed by the commodore to deposit the coins under the mast. Some
years ago Brooks was murdered aboard a boat at Sausalito, and the incident
of the coins was forgotten until the Chispa was put on the ways a few weeks
ago to receive a new set of sticks. The,n Captain Chitteuden, who has
always sailed^ the yacht, remembered the incident of the coins, and when the
mast was removed looked out for them. He was rewarded with one lone
The gigantic mentality of bureau clerks in
Washington, D. C, was made evident in
mstructipns received by Captain George B.
Baldwin, director of the census here, which accompanied several cases ot
blafrk forms sent from the printing department. The instructions read:
"These cases contain blank schedules. If these cases are placed on top
of each other they will take up les3 room thaa if scattered around the office.
Notify "your assistant to this effect." » .
Captain Baldwin replied: ,-• ~" \
"This to acknowledge receipt of theY cases which contained the blank
schedule form. In accord with instructions D. 432 A, I have notified my
assistant that if the cases are placed on top of each other they will take up
less room than if scattered around the office." . \u2666
Captain Baldwin did not add that when he read the instructions to his
assistant the latter bowed to the ground in profound relief and then wanted
to know, with much profanity, if Washington lingered under the impression
that a Californian' wore his brains breaded.
Valuable Lesson in
Economy of Space
While the various committees and news
papermen were wafting for the arrival of
Prince Tsai Tao * of China the whisper
went around that the secret service men feared an attack would be made on
his life as the parade went through Chinatown. Accordingly, the newspaper
men, fluttering with excitement, gathered around the royal carriage, ready to
be on the spot when the bomb was thrown. There was one exception— a
veteran in the game, who trudged in the rear at a safe distance.
"Are you scared?" taunted a younger enthusiast.
"My son," said the old man, puffing wearily and* wiping his brow, 'if
that bomb— is— thrown— l— want— to write— up— the— incident. I realize
that— a busted newspaperman— is only an— innocent bystander— and useless—
to his paper."

More Than Dead Hero
There was a gloomy pause as the horse sense percolated through the 1
skulls of the ambitious ones, and by common consent they trudged alon
with the veteran in the rear.
