"The domination and prostitution of government by railroads and other cor porations is unquestionably the great est political evil we have to face in the United States today,' was the declara tion of Churchill during his campaign for the governorship of New Hamp shire. This sentiment ts powerfully expressed in the authors recent novel, "Coniston," which embodies a skillful attack on railroad rule in an unnamed New TOngland" state, closely resembling New Hampshire.

April 10.—The change for the better In f the condition of Pope Pius X is so marked tonight that If no com plications intervene his speedy recovery 119 to normal health assured.

It is entirely false that the pope is af flicted with heart disease. Bulletins regarding his condition have not been ] issued, because this is done only In cases of great gravity. "The pope certainly needs a period of rest. He must take great care, but I can affirm that within'a few days perhaps two or three—if nothing un foreseen occurs, he will be able to re eume, at least in part, the ordinary occupations of high ministry." Another evidence of the fact that ap prehension is no longer felt is to be found in the fact that Cardinal Merry del Val, the papal secretary of state, left the Vatican today and went to his estate near by. It was reported tonight that the pope left his bed for about half an hour »arly in the evening and sat In an armchair. When he retired he ap peared to be in the best of spirits and even showed a desire to take nourish ment. After lila. evening , visit Professor Marchiafava decided that it was not necessary for Doctor Amid to keep a night watch In the antechamber.

Captain John Hood, then captain of the dreadnought Delaware, the pennant ship of the fleet, told the Navy league today at its session here. Captain Hood, now a member of the navy general board, gave his views on a desirable naval policy.

France will have ."S capital ships of which it will be dread noughts; Japan will have 36 of which 17 will be dreadnoughts or- dread nought cruisers. -Nothing short of the general board's policy of 48 battleships for the United States can even approach ade quacy and a fleet inadequate is a burden without protection. -We have a fleet too small and heterogeneous to meet the ends which justify its maintenance and too large to be carried as a burden for a play "Take as the basis of your naval policy a building program that will give us by 1925 a fleet of 4 8 first I lin ** bsttleships. • We have inherited from our fath- j ers no 'entangling alliances, , but we have the Monroe doctrine.
