Yesterday Ed ward 0. Stokes, the new governor of New Jersey, was Inaugurated at.Tren ton and in the course of his address he laid much stress upon the policy he suggests for the state with regard :to the incorporation of big concerns. In the course of his remarks he said: "The financial condition of the state of New Jersey is well known. At the close of the last fiscal year the balance in the treasury amounted to $2,940, 9jL8.98. The ordinary receipts for the same year amounted to $4,302,370.61, of which nearly 78 per cent or $3,361, 543.69 came from railroads and the "business companies domiciled in our state. Of the entire income of the government not a penny was contrib uted directly by the people, yet all of it was expended for their benefit and in their interest. "The state is caring for the blind, the feeble-minded and the insane, sup porting our prisons and reformatories, educating the younger generatidns, de veloping a magnificent road system (embracing quite one-third of the .macadam or state roads of the United States maintaining the state gov ernment and courts of justice, all of -which would be at the direct expense of our citizens as tax payers, except •for our present fiscal policy." "If "this policy is to be contln wed we must preserve the present re sources of revenue as well as add new ones. "We cannot maintain our revenues if we destroy their source. We tax the business/companies that incorporate in oar state: ,A policy of-taxatioa--ls not [Consistent with a policy of destruction. You cannot tax that which you have destroyed or driven from you. "The incorporations In one state for ten months of last year show an active capital of. $111,255,500 in another state $251,971,620 in another, $285,- .663,700 in New Jersey, $31?,569,620. Our state is,, therefore, by no means ohfo nL wi attracting all bf the great moneyed in- °h*° ™lq"e l°^at terests seeking articles of incorpora-1 tion. The recommendations of the de partment of commerce and labor for the regulation of state corporations by the national government are by many tfjjif regarded as the preliminary steps to "j't*natlonal incorporation, that capital will seek incorporation un der federal law rather than deal with forty-five independent states. "All these elements seem to threaten the revenues of New Jersey." '.not be allowed to drift times." antJpinatlne' Evidently Governor Stokes can see nothing wrong with New Jersey's sys tem of Incorporation except that it i. needs an improvement so that the goose that lays the golden egg shall not be killed. New Jersey to judge .. .from Mr. Stoke's address, is in the busi ness for the money that can be ob tained. If trusts are to exist, New Jersey may as well reap the benefit as any other state, seems to be the .sentiment. And, if the governor is right and tells the whole truth, his position is a good ane, for he declared in his address that other states, which ." have not a good reputation for caring well for the Investments within their territory but have laws more lax than are New Jersey's, have fallen behind New-Jersey in the amount of capitaliza tlon of the corporations given the right to exist during the past year. The moral Governor Stokes draws from his essay on corporations and incorporat '"-tag them is that,the laws of the com monwealth of New Jersey should be made over, if necessary, so that they will be suitable to the so-called trusts. In conclusion he says: "The revenues of our state, her ma terial welfare, her good name, and the Interests of thousands of stockholders and Investors in business corporations now chartered under her laws, the pro taction of the public in.its rights, the safeguarding of corporate interests and vested rights, demand constant and careful review of its acts of incorpora tlon. "It has been the policy of this state in the past and should be in the fu ture to remodel and amend the corpor atlon laws whenever necessary to meet new situations without doing violence to the established rights. "If our enactments fail to give either to "the public or to investors sufficient protection, let us make them efficient. If in any respect they are weak, let Vfj ^us make them strong. If they are bur jVgdensome, let. us lighten the load. If avS experience shows that any part of our enactments is wrong let us make them i-t-'right. If abuses ^have crept in, let us eradicate them.

One of the allegations is that the judfee charged $10 per day expenses against the government, which is not in accordance with the law, but Congressman Lacey has found that ther# are several others who have made the same charge thinking, as Judge Swayne -doubtless did, that this was the legal charge. Major Lacey, always a lover of fairness, has taken .up the fight against impeachment, and is waging an interesting campaign in the bouse. THE NAVY AND PEACE. Admiral Dewey, than whom no one can be expected to give better advice on naval matters, is pronounced in his view that a strong navy is the best and most powerful protection against a war a country can possibly have. In an in terview yesterday Admiral Dewey said: "Whatever action congress takes upon the recommendation for the in crease in the navy made by the Presi dent and the navy department it should at least authorize three additional bat tleships. They are necessary in order that our naval policy may not suffer interruption, and that we may sooner be in condition to avert a war by being prepared for it. It is not economy to build a navy in a hap hazard fashion. Its construction should occur along certain well defined lines, and the result would be both ad vantageous and economical." This view has been shared by Presi dent Roosevelt and other prominent Americans tor several years and the improvement of the navy, which has, however, met with much opposition, is being carried out along the lines which President Roosevelt favored when he was in the navy department as assistant secretary. That a navy cannot be too strong to prevent war is a fact which, though apparently, at first glance, a para doxial one, is simply what is to be ex pected. It is true in every walk of life that the man who has once out classed all his competitors is seldom called upon to defend his position. From the boy who onc6~ gets the reputation as the school slugger and is respected by his playmates there after, to the head of a wealthy corpora tion or the nation with strong de fenses, the rule Is the same. Power brings immunity from danger of hav ing to use that power. A strong navy is the best provision a nation can make for peace among the countries of the world. I' CARNEGIE'S BIG HEART.

Iowa has set the pace In many things during the past soor.e.of years, but of nothing may she be mere proud than of the fact that she has been the first to have a professor spread abroad^ throughout the, state the gos pel of good, healthy seed corn. Pro fessor Holden of Ames last year made a tour through the state, traveling on several different lines and "lectiirlng at every station to crowds of-farmers. It was interesting to learn that the till ers of the soil, instead of scoffing at the pollege professor, who esteemed himself wise enough to tell them how to conduct their own farms, they at tended the lectures en masse, listened attentively, asked questions in .good faith and profited by the advice given by Professor Holden from his store of scientific knowledge of farming. The result was that Iowa had a record breaking crop of corn and got a record breaking price for it. Now, throughout the big corn belt of the United States corn specials will be run by the various railroads. Pro fessor Holden has (his time engaged far ahead and many others who are versed along the lines he has studied and mastered will take other trains and go out among the people to spread the gospel of corn. Mr. Holden is the highest authority on the subject in the world and his advice is valued and val uable. An article by H.' M. Cottrell, reviewing the progress of the science of growing corn in several states and the benefits derived from the experi ments in different states Is of interest in this connection. Mr. Cottrell says: "In 1900 the Iowa experiment sta tion grew nineteen leading /varieties of corn. Reid's Yellow Dent yielded 100.3 bushels per acre, while another variety gave, a yield of only f-2.6 bush els per acre. In another year, in a test of fifty varieties of corn at this station, the best variety yielded Bev enty-five bushels per acre, the poor est variety thirty bushels. "The Illinois experiment- station found in a five-year test of thirteen se lected varieties of corn that the best variety yielded 25.6 bushels of corn per acre yearly more than another good variety. In a test one year of seventy-two varieties of corn that were offered for sale by seedsmen the best variety yielded seventy-five bush els per acre more than the poorest variety. "At the Indiana experiment station, in a test of twenty-five good varieties of corn, the best variety yielded thirty five bushels per -acre more than the lowest yielding good variety. "In a five-year test of thirty-six standard varieties of corn, the experiment station found best variety yielded of of deserving people and the blessings!

It means that the country has a president who makes the parties and the factions forget their little animosities and remember that we are all Americans, heart and soul Americans, men with but one country and but one aim—the better ing of the conditions of that country. It is of course necessary and beneficial that there should be two political par ties but it is not necessary that every action. In and out of campaigns should be influenced by the fact that these two parties do exist. "President Roosevelt is fast becom ing a good democrat," Senator and Elector Barksdale is quoted as saying. sary "and if he comes a little further down -cousin to his hindsight. Praise tj twenty-four bush- than the poorest variety soil and ex pense of raising the .same for both. The Missouri experiment station made a test of forty-one varieties of the poorest sort.

"In a test of twenty varieties of corn the Nebraska experiment station found that the best variety yielded sixty- po,?^st "The Ohio experimental station, in a test of seventy-six varieties, found a difference in yield of seventy-eight bushels per acre." These tests made by the experiment stations of the seven leading corn states of the union show most force fully the great difference in the yields every corn IOWA PRESS COMMENT. The Webster City Freeman-Tribune believes that the time is coming when the members of congress will be obliged to abandon generalities and line up on the rajlroad question.

Dr. and Mrs. LaForce are making a tour of Europe, and his letter from the German capital city tells of the expe rience of himself and Mrs. LaForce in an interesting manner.

New Jersey has Just suppled some statistics that may help somewhat in the solution of the question, of legiti mate courtship expenses. In that state, where the amorous ardor is fully up to the normal warmth, figures have been collected showing that an ordi nary courtship might cost as little as $20. The average cost is only $22, and the average duration is eighteen months. Here is practical proof that court ships are not neceSbarlly costly. It Is as cheap to get married as It Is to" get divorced. A man can get a wife for less money than a good suit of clothes. Is it any greater wonder that many change the one almost as often as they do the other? The necessary expenses of court ship are small. Lovers care for little but each other. If the same strict economy be maintained in everything, as is so often maintained in the direc tion of gas bills, the total expense of courtship would be a .mere bagatelle. Lord Odo Russell, for years the Brit ish ambassador at Berlin, used to tell the following story: One day he had an appointment with Bismarck.

He smokes unceasingly and always the most frightfully .strong ci gars. I had to ask hlmvto open the window, as I could not stand it any longer." When Lord Odo went into the room the first words Bismarck said to him were: "Some people have the most extraordinary foibles.

Today he was so perfumed that I was obliged to open the window, as .1„ could not, stand It any longer." ,Y The Little World.
