It is evident that the young Mis sourian who fell heir to a fortune the <lay after he enlisted is going to be one of the most popular recruits the . army has ever possessed. The fishermen «towed to sea nt Ocean City, N. J., >by a whale are prob ably not at all in sympathy now’ with the movement to preserve the biggest of all animals from extinction. A German military man says the American army lacks discipline. Per haps he made his observations in the vicinity of Fort Sheridan before the Highwood saloons were transformed into ice cream parlors. The New York doctor who left a rubber tube and a safety pin In a Mon tana man's chest can doubtless re cover his goods, besides getting a more or less florid indorsement, by ad dressing him air urgent letter.

If the past is anything to judge by, man will use plenty of It without any In formation from science as to its merits. The Boston Herald points out that It is difficult to kiss a girl who wears one of the present fashionable hats. The thing for the true gent to do in such a case is'to give the lady proper warning so that she may remove her headgear In as dignified a manner as baste permits.

After this grand work is more nearly perfect possibly when two old men meet one will say to the -other: ••What’ll you give me to boot if I trade livers with you?” Seventy-flve thousand people turned out In New York to attend the funeral of a Yiddish poet. We are not sure whether this is an indication that the 'Yiddish hold poets in great esteem or whether the demonstration was In tended as an indication of the tri umph they felt In having one less poet among them. The Keats-Shehey Memorial asso elation is of English origin, formed to do honor 1e two English poets. The society has succeeded in raising sl7, 600 for its purpose, and of this sum $12,500 comes from the United States.

The total arrivals at the Ellis is land immigration depot in New York during the present year were 1.330,- 624. The figures from other points bring the aggregate to more than 1,400.000.

An Engiish "suffragette,” now in New York, has persuaded some Amer ican advocates of woman suffrage to engage In an aggressive campaign, and to that end street corner speeches have been arranged for. It will not be worth while for the aggressiveness of the suffragists to continue, after the English fashion, to the point of making violent attack upon unfriendly legislators, for, remarks the Indian apolis Star, at the very first move in this direction those wise and wary > gentlemen will taka to the. woods to remain until the danger Is past.

Guests of Colorado Manufacturers’ As sociation and Traffic Club. i Denver. —A great number of mer chants from every section of Colorado have bean in Denver this week at the Invitati >n of the Colorado Manufactur ers’ Association. Tuesday night they t were given a reception at the Traffic Club. Previous to gathering at the club many of the visitors were enter tained at dinner by the C. S. Morey | Mercantile Company. State Senator James B. Berger acted i a* toastmaster at the Traffic Club cere monies, introducing as the first speak ! er Acting Mayor A. J. Spengel, who I welcomed the visitors and told several amusing stories. He declared that * Denver could not get along without the I rest of the state, but that Colorado i could exist without Denver. So. he said, the commercial bodies or Denver were always boosting and helping the whole state. All advertising done In the name cf Denver brought attention and v labors to the rest of the state. ; The interests or the city and state were identical ami all should work to gether for the good of the common wealth. President E. L. Scholtz of the Cham ber of Commerce spoke in a similar vein, telling the visitors how glad he was to welcome them on behalf of the organization that he represented and behalf of the whole city. Hon. Frank C. Goudy criticised the financial f.vstem of the country. Father William O'Ryan also spoke In a happy vein, telling many of his in imitable stories to illustrate the points that he wished to call to the attention of his hearers. Other speakers, both from Denver and from abroad in the state, added to the pleasure of the evening, and refreshments were served during the exercises. Secretary Scott of the Manufactur ers' Association organized the visitors and their escorts for their raid on the big factories at 9 o’clock. One large party of forty started with the Inten tion of taking in all the factories on the list, while others in smaller parties were provided with escorts to direct them to industries in which they are especially Interested. All the factories were decorated In honor of the guests and there were special guides at each plant to explain the process, whether it was the mak ing of ink, the blowing of glass or the pegging out of shoes. Every industry was represented by its largest plant, keeping open house, and all the busi ness men of the city joined in helping to make the tour of the sightseers both pleasant and profitable. Souvenirs of the various industries were given away at many of the plants, nnd it is predicted that the visiting merchan’s never again will forget the fact >nat Denver-made goods are not only equally as good, but in most cases better than the products of eastern factories in the same line of business. The guests of the manufacturers ex pressed themselves as highly pleased with their insight Into the manner of making the goods that they sell to their customers through-out the state, and It is believed that this social gath ering will result in a big boost for Colorado-made goods of all descrip tions. President’s Plea For Higher Life. Washington.—lnterest in Wednes day's work of the fifth general conven tion of the Religious Educational us sociation centered in a reception and an address to the delegates by Presi dent Roosevelt, in which he declared that our material prosperity will avail but little unless it is built upon the superstructure of the higher moral and spiritual life. The delegates were received in the ■east room of the White House, when the President said to them: *’l doubt if there is nny lesson more essential to teach in an industrial dem ocracy like ours than the lesson that any failure to train the average citi zens to a belief in the things of the spirit, no less than the things of the body, must in the long run entail mis fortune, shortcomings, possible disas ter upon the nation itself. **lt is eminently right that we Am ericans should be proud of our ma terial prosperity. It is eminently right that we should pride ourselves upon a widely diffused nnd exceedingly prac tical system of education.- "1 believe in both, but neither will avail if something else Is not added to the nation. The mateilal prosperity | is essential as a foundation but It is ! only a foundation, and upon it must be ' built the sni»ers*ructure of the higher moral and spiritual life; for otherwise in itself the material prosperity will amount to little. So with education; it is necessary that we should see 1 that the child is trained not merely in reading and writing, not merely in the i elementary branches of learning strictly so defined, lint trained indus -1 trially. trained adequately to meet the . ever increasing demands of the com -1 plex growth of our industrialism, trained agriculturally, trained in hand icrafts. trained to bw more efficient workers In every field of human activ ity. But they must be trained in more than that, or the nation will ultimately go down.” Work For Colorado Buildings. Washington.—Members of the Colo rado congressional delegation are ar ranging for a meeting to discuss the possibilities of securing action on vari ous bills pending tor federal buildings in Colorado. It has not been decided by house leaders whether there will be a general omnibus public building measure enacted at this session of Congress. If it be decided that there shall be such legislation, provision will be made for but part of the many buildings for which bills have been introduced and there w-ill have to be a general scaling down of appropriations and places. Rills have been introduced for build ings in Colorado at Denver. Fort Col lins, Greeley. Durango. Grand Junc tion and Glonwood Springs, and for additions to cost the limit at Colorado Springs nnd Rouldor. The meeting of the Colorado delegation will be for the purpose of agreeing on the course to pursue should it become evident that but a part of these buildings can be provided for in an omnibus bill, should one be reported.

WAR WOULD BE TOO INHUMAN JAPANESE AMBASSADOR COMES WITH A MESSAGE OF PEACE. JAPAN STILL FRIENDLY WAR WITH THE UNITED STATES TOO HELLISH TO BE THOUGHT OF, NEW YORK, Feb. 16.—Declaring that war between the United States and Japan would be "the most in human event in the world’s hietory" and "too hellish” to be thought of, Baron Kogoro Takahira. the new Jap anese ambassador to Washington, said Sunday, upon landing in New York from the steamer Etruria that the Japanese people know absolutely nothing of a break in the cordial re lations which have been historic be tween the two nations. Talk of war. Baron Takahira declared with much emphasis, was utterly unintelligible to him, unless, as some one had sug gested, it was spread broadcast to serve the commercial ends of some newspapers. The new ambassador said there might be some matters pending in Washington which would require his attention, but they were not serious. As to the cruise of the American fleet to the Pacific ocean, he regarded it purely as a naval maneuver on a grand scale- —designed to show to the world at large that America has a won derful naval power which can be dis patched anywhere at a moment's no tice "in support of a legitimate cause, which always is at the bottom of American diplomacy.” He Is a warm, personal friend of Mr. Roosevelt, and is looking forward to his meeting with the chief executive with a great deal of pleasure. The baron is reluming to the American capital after an absence of two years spent in Rome as ambassador to Italy. The baron left Washington as minister and was subsequently elevated to the rank of ambassador. He was one or Japan's envoys at the Portsmouth peace conference. “I am pleased to come back to this country in my present capacity,” said Baron Takahira to a representative of the Associated Press. "I started my d.plomatic career as an attache at our legation in Washington some 30 years ago and I have always regarded that city as my cradle. Now I am going back there as the personal rep resentative of the Japanese emperor, accredited to the President of the of the United States nnd I think I can consider it as the triumphal entry Into that city. ”1 know there were some questions arising after I left—about the segre gation of Japanese children In some of the schools of the Pacific coast and of Japanese immigration. I cannot, of course, tell you at this moment how I will have to deal with what remains to require my attention at Washing ton. "As to the voyage of the American fleet to ’he Pacific so much talked of recently. I consider It purely an Amer ican affair. 1 hear th?re has been all sorts of speculation as to the motives of such a voyage. I always thought that the most reasonable one wc can attribute is a naval maneuver on a grand scale. The United States Is a country of the most pacific intentions as has been well proved by history. As we say in our proverb. Don't for get war in time of peace,* it must be -necessaT even fpr such a great coun try as this to ascertain now and then the working capacity of its ships and the good discipline of its men. **We have, therefore, no reason to be suspicious about the visit of the ships to the Pacific. You may have noticed that the Japanese newspapers have been publishing lately their de cree or direction of welcome to your fleet If it should come to Japan. This shows how our people regard the cruise. “War talk which I hear has been published frequently In eonection with the cruise is utterly unintelligible to me. You know it is well said by your famous general that ‘war is hell.’ It is now a concurrent opinion among the best military experts of all the great powers that war is more hellish than it used to be. owing to the great scientific improvements which are con stantly being applied to man-slaughter ing machines. It is impossible in my opinion to any man of ordinary sanity to think of a war between two powers like ours, in view of the sincere friend ship which bo long has actually ex isted between them. To think of it is a crime against humanity, against civilization, aaginst the well being of the whole of mankind. Such a war. If ever fought, would be the most in human event In the world’s history Our people nt least do not think of the possibility of such an unfortunate event.” Denver Tramway Victory. I Denver. —A decision handed down ! Friday by Judge Robert Lewis of the U. S. District Court practically grants the Denver City Tramway Company a blanket franchise on the streets of Denver, to run at least until February 5. 1935, and perhaps to run forever, j While guarded in its language, the de ' cision is most sweeping in its effects, j It declares valid the ordinance of 1885 granting a blanket franchise. The company to which this franchise i was granted was chartered for fifty I years, and the judge holds that the life of the franchise, not being specified, must run at least an equal length of time. He further declares that the or dinance »>/ July 15, 1899. repealing the ordinance of 1885, save as to such streets as the tramway then occupied is invalid and void. Peru Will Welcome Fleet. Lima. Peru. —The American fleet, which is steaming up the west coast of South America, is expected to ar rive at Callao Thursday, and the gov ernment has ordered that Rear Ad miral Evans be tendered the honors of a vice admiral. The cruiser Coronet Bolognsi left Callao Sunday for this port. Everything is in readiness In Lima and Callao for a glorious wel come to the American visitors. The official program includes a great ban ouet which will be given by President Pardo to the officers In commemora tion of Washington’s birthday. LIASILITY OF EMPLOYERS. Bill Introduced in Congress to Protect Railway Workers. Washington.—A comprehensive em ployers’ liability bill has been intro duced* in the Senate and House by Sen ator La Foilette of Wisconsin, and Rep resentative Sterling of Illinois. The authors say the bill has the Indorsement of the Brotherhood of Lo comotive Engineers, Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen and Brothernood of Railroad Trainmen, and is intended to meet the ic-cent de cision of the Supreme Court, by which the employers' liability act of June 11, 1906, was declared unconstitutional. Every common carrier, while en* gaged in interstate or foreign com merce, or commerce between the pos sesions of the United States, is made liable to its employes who ire injured while employed in such commerce, when such injuries are due to the negli gence or mismanagement of any of ficer or employe of such carriej - , or when due to defects or insufficiencies in equipment. This provision is made equally ap plicable to carriers in the territories, the District of Columbia and the Pan ama canal zone, and carriers engaged in the transportation of United States mails. The bill recognizes the doctrine of “comparative negligence," as it is now recognized in the states of Wisconsin. South Dakota. North Dakota, Ne braska, Nevada. Georgia and Florida, and in the act of Congress which was declared unconstitutional. It permits an employe to recover damages if he has been guilty of con tributory negligence, but says the Jury shall diminish the damages in accord ance with the amount of negligence they may find is attributable to such ■employe. It is provided that an injured em ploye shall not be held to be guilty of contributory negligence in any case where the violation of the law by the carrier contributed to such injury; also that questions of fact relating to negligence shall be for the Jury to de termine. In the event of a verdict in favor of the employe, it is required that the court shall allow as a part of the costs a reasonable attorney's fee, not exceed ing an amount equal to twenty-three per cent, of judgment recovered, and an additional fee equal to five per cent, of the amount finally recovered for each appeal. An Injured employe shall not be held to have assumed the risk of his em ployment In any case where the viola tion of law by the carrier contributed to such injury. One section of the bill specifically makes void any contract, rule or device whatsoever, the purpose of which is to exempt the carrier from liability urder .the act. The statute of limitations within which suit can be brought is fixed at three years. Food Adulterations. Denver.—Through the labors of the state pure food and drug commission the general public of*Colorado has of late seen some remarkable revelations concerning the nature of the things It eats. The commission. Instead of pros ecuting cases, has been warning deal ers. and the result is that a close in spection nowadays will show strange changes from the labels that have hith erto been made familiar to the public. In design and general appearance the new labels are like the old. but a close examination will show strange things printed, usually in very small type. Here is a list of some of the changes: Formerly "Pure Maple Syrup,” now “Cane and Maple Syrup;” on what wan previously known as pure apple cider the words "imitation and artificially colored,” but in very small type, now appear; potted turkey Is now "potted meat, turkey flavor;" pure cider vine gar is now "distilled and artificially colored;” "pure apple butter” is now “fruit butter, apple flavor, 25 per cent, g.ucose.” The new labels confess that bologna sausage has preservatives in it, that current jelly is 75 per cent, apple juice, and that pepper contains 25 per cent, of adulteration—such as.charcoal, corn meal and ground cigar boxes; that Ice cream is frozen milk .and coloring mat ter; that French mustard is 75 per cent, not mustard at all; that olive oil is made from cotton seed, and that wmaay and port wine are mysteries. Fleet Passes Valparaiso. Valparaiso. The great American fleet of sixteen battleships, under the command of Rear Admiral Evans, passed Valparaiso Friday afternoon and continued on Its voyags northward for Callao. Peru, the next stopping place. All Valparaiso and thousands of persons from every city in Chile wit nessed the passing of the fleet. President Montt and other high offi cials of the republic came out from shore to greet the battleships and al most the entire Chilean navy ex changed salutes with them as they swung around Curaumilla Point and into Valparaiso bay in single file, head ed by the Chilean cruiser Chacabuco and five Chilean torpedo boat destroy ers. Swinging around the president’s ship firing salutes as they passed, the war ships headed for the open sea without stopping and went north. Clemency to Prisoners. Denver. —At a meeting of the State Board of Pardons Friday Thomas C. i»*orris, sentenced from Otero county in January, 1906. for robbery, to a term of three to five years, had his sentence commuted to a term of two and a half to five years. C. F. Harris and William D. Mitchell, both sentenced to three to five years for grand larceny committed in Gunnison county, will be paroled on Monday, their sentences having been changed to one and a half to five years. And Dominie Job. sentenced to four to five years for assault to murder com mitted in Clear Creek county, had his sentence commuted to one and one fourth to five years. The action taken by the hoard and the governor means that all these con victs will he released on parole within a short time. Fish Hatchery Insurance. Denver. —David I. Farr, -state game and fish commissioner, has received a draft for $1,500 from the St. Paul Fire & Marine Insurance Company, In pay ment of the insurance on the Del Norte fish hatchery, which recently burned. A new hatchery has now been built at a cost of something over $2,000, making the actual loss to the state on the fire only SSBO. The capacity of the new hatchery Is 1,500.000 eggs at a time, with thr?e hatchings a year. UNCLE SAM’S WAR VESSELS REPORT OF ADDMIRAL CONVERSE ANSWERS HOSTILE CRITICISMS. OUR FLEET DEFENDED PERSONNEL OF NAVY FIRST CLASS AND ARMAMENT IS UNSURPASSED. Washington.—By direction of the President, Secretary Metcalf has made public the report of Admiral Converse on the fighting ships of the American navy, called forth by many criticisms recently published in magazines and otherwise. This report was prepared primarily to satisfy the President as to the exact state of our navy ships compared with those of other navies, and its publication is authorized with | the design to reassure the American ! sailors as to the quality of weapons with which they must go into battle. I Admiral Converse characterizes the criticisms as “prepared by persons l whose knowledge of the subjects dis cussed was limited and incorrect." | There was, he says, ample justification * for the adoption of the battleship de- I signs which have been followed, j “It is not claimed that mistakes have not been made.” he adds, “or that our ; ships are without faults, but in view I of the then state of the art of battle ship building this fact is not to be wondered at. It is remarkable that the mistakes were so few and that none were really serious. In this re spect out record will compare favor ably with that of foreign services.” In the ninety-one pages which the admiral devotes to the defense of the I navy, the subjects dealt with include ] battle drills, freeboard of American i ships, height of gun positions, torpedo I defense guns, battleship armor, turret ' designs, ammunition hoists, In and out j turning screwb, the Kecrsarge and Kentucky and general notes. His em phatic conclusion Is: “Our ships are not inferior to those in foreign services.” “We have,” he Bays* “made com promises in our designs of battleships, ' because it is impossible to construct a perfect battleship; such comprom ises have, perhaps detracted from the desired perfect ships in some respects, but at the same time have made it pos sible to Improve upon some other ex isting disadvantage, and. on the whole. | the compromises, each and all, have tended towards a nearer approach to the desired perfect finality. Other na tions have labored and will, like our selves, continue to labor, under this snme>lifflculty In endeavoring to ap proach as near as possible to that im possibility—a perfect battleship. "The quality of the material of our navy is Inferior to none; In quantity of vessels alone are we lacking. With an increase in number of ships the Am erican navy will have been supplied the only feature necessary to make It second to none in all that tends to ward fighting efficiency. And when the stress of actual combat, if such should ever unfortunately come, brings the only real practical test, our coun try need have no misgivings or fears, but that our battleships will give an excellent account of themselves, and prove themselves ail that we have de signed them for and know them to be.” The admiral says in treating our battle drills that it was not until the spring of 1903 that our “new navy” achieved the size of a squadron — eight battleships; and not until last spring that we acquired a fleet—two squadrons. It then for the first time became possible to carry out fleet tac tics. These were begun In July, were interrupted for target practice and re sumed again in the present voyage to the Pacific coast. In this connection the admiral remarks: “The personnel of our navy, in ambi tion and professional knowledge, is second to none In the world.” It is admitted by the admiral that the Indiana and Kearsarge classes (the first battleships of the navy) are too low forward for efficient fighting at sea in fairly heavy weather, ’’but the remainder of our battleships could without doubt give a good account of themselves in a fight at sea in any weather in which it is at all likely for a fleet to engage.” The question presents the choice of being well armed and consequently weighted lower In the water, or being lightly armed and setting high out. It is stated to be the policy of the Am erican navy “to always have our ves sels armed better than our opponents.” Beets Pledged For New Factory. Denver.—A News special from Rocky Ford Saturday night says: At a meeting of the Otero County Beet Growers’ association held here today 1,000 acres of beets were pledged by the farmers here for the new Man zanoia beet factory, to be built inde pendent of the trust. La Junta sent word that it would guarantee 1,000 acres more, and Fowler 2.000 acres. Manzanola has promised 3,000 acres, and there have been 500 acres more pledged, making a total of 7.500 acres for the factory before even the ground I for a site is selected. From Manzanola to the meeting to j day. which was a protest against $4.50 ! beets, came a committee of three on | behalf of the independent mill. J. M. ! Baty, E. J. Brewer and William Me ! Castill. The meeting was largely at | tended and many addresses were made. Among other things brought out was that Rocky Ford grew the best beets in the United States and got the least for them. Speakers also showed that the profits in making sugar from sugar beets was enormous, and that there could be no question that the Man zanola independent plant would be a success. All efforts to get the sugar com panies to pay more than $4.50 per ton have been without avail, the profiosi tion of the farmers insisting on $5 for beets being flatly refused. Large Shipment of Lambs. Denver.—The largest consignment of fat lambs which has come to the Den ver market this year arrived at the stock yards Friday from Romeo, in the San Luis valley. The lambs were fed on field peas by the Conejos County I-and & Investment Company and in the consignment are 3.000 selected lambs, averaging between go and 90 pounds. The bunch Is In charge of Homer Neel, the company’s superinten dent. and came through from Romeo in record time, being Just twenty-four hours on the road. PERUNA ’EDITORIAL NO. I.

It was all over her body but the worst was on her face and hands. She cried and scratched all the time and could not sleep night or day from the scratch ing. I had her under the doctor’s care for a year and a half and he seemed to do her no good.
