A nation animated by a single mot

possble. Witness Jupan conducting a
war against Russia, an enemy vastly
more powerful but eaten up with the
rust aud rotteness of greed and
graft, while the people of the little
island empire full of faith, full of
strength and purity of purpose will
ing to saorifice all for the the oauee,
win viotory everywhere. What a pic
tare! Great Russia's "nobles" steal
ing like the basest of sneak thieves
the Red Cross funds designed to cave
their own soldiers from suffering aud
de«th; on the other hand every dol
lar of Japan's funds expended pro
perly without grab or graft. Is it
any wonder that Japan wins

The move made by the best men of
all parties for fairer methods in bus

only way to bring any desired object
to pass. Kvery man owes it to him-
self and to his neighbors to enlist and

Thomas Lawson Addresses Thousands of
Kansas Psopls at
OTTAWA, Kan , July 9.—Thomas
Lawson yesterday delivered an address
to thonsanas of Kausans here, denoun
cing "the system" in scathing terms
and assailing Rockefeller, Paul llorton
aud James H. Eckels. He asserted
mm ioioal ownership to be a will o'
High Priced Life In Washington.
Tbe British ambassador at Washing
ton recently had bis salary jumped
from $32,500 to $30,500 a year to make
up for alleged increase In the cost of
Uviug at the American capital within
the past few years. All Wwhington
ians will bear out the assertion that it
costs more to live now on tbe same
scale in the capital than it did ten
years ago. The price of everything
needed In tbe home has advanced. This
applies to all conditions of life and is
not confined to families which must
keep up social appcurauces.
The people of Washington claim that
tbe embassies and legations are them
selves mainly responsible for the high
cost of living. They set the ball roll
lng with their extravagant social, or
semisocial, semlpolitical functions. Ev
ery reception, ball, dinner and lunch
eon must be outdone in magnificence
by its successor. If foreign govern
ments want Washington to be quieter
in Its social tone and less expensive for
their representatives they have but to
pull tbe purse strings and set a slower
Tbe Washington people claim, with
a show of truth, that they get more for
their money than tbe bihabitauts of
any other large city In the country.
Tbe capital ls a city made to order and
is comfortable as well ns beautiful for
a place of residence. It has no com
merce to speak of, no manufacturing.
no smoke nuisance and no boss. The
three executive officials are named by
tbe president, and congress legislates
for the municipality. The population
has increased 44,000 lv five years and
now stauds at 332,000. As the official
business of the nation is expanding,
the citizens of the capital expect it to
grow In population and perhaps out
strip Baltimore in size.
American Tars Man Our Warships.
The statement that the Japanese
warships are manned solely by natives
of Japan has led to comment in some
quarters disparaging to the personnel
of our navy. It has even been said
that the United States need not expect
the same devotion in battle that char
acterizes Togo's sailors because com
paratively few men on the American
warships are American citizens. The
foreign element among enlisted men
in our navy has been rated as high
as 75 per cent.
Years ago, ljefore the Spanish-Amer
ican war aud when the navy was
smaller, the percentage of foreigners
behind tbe guns was very high. At
that time recruits were gathered from
the merchant sailor class aud along
the wharfs of great seaports. The
war with Spain, however, stimulated
patriotic enlistments, and It ls now
shown by tbe naval records that among
petty officers 74 per cent are native
born citizens aud 20 per cent natu
ralized. Among the men 79 per cent
are natives aud 80 per cent are citizens.
Furthermore, 95 per cent of tbe ap
prentices, fully one-seventh of the total
force, are native American boys. It
Is evident that the foreign element in
our navy ls very small, and congress
has been urged to keep It so by mak
ing the sendee attractive to American
sailors. Since tbe navy is to be kept
up, good sailors are a necessity. Sea
men and gunners are wanted who will
tight for tbe flag, aud fight to the
death. Science has done much to make
the modern warship armament effec
tive, but it has not found a substitute
for the "man behind the gun."
Comfort In Clothes.
This la the season of the year when
men and women of all stations learn
to know how largely clothes have to
do with comfort. Tbe habitual wear
ing in tbe town social season of silks,
satins, laces, broadcloths, furs and the
like make life a burden which the vic
tims are glad to shake off and get out
in the open dressed in loose, strong
garments which weather and earth
cannot barm. Then comes a taste of
real luxury In clothing.
No clothes are actually more uncom
fortable than tbe expensive, fashion
able and so called luxurious ones. Tbe
tight patent leather pointed shoes, the
excruciatingly high, stiff collars and
the almost iron ribbed hats are the
devices that can
be imagined in articles supposed to be
luxurious. Something "as easy as an
old shoe" ls what truly civilized men
and women come to out In the woods
beyond the whims of fashion. Happy
the day for the human race when
comfort sets the fashion in clothes.
Pious Japs and pious Russians are
praying to their national gods to smite
the other feflow hip and thigh. And as
their gods are far apart there ls no
chance for an appeal like that which
Lincoln addressed to the belligerents
in tbe last year of the civil war, '-Both
read the same Bible and pray to the
same God," and ought therefore to get
together on a basis of peace.
The action of the United Staies in
compelling Admiral Enquist's Russian
squadron to remain at Manila until the
end of the war undoubtedly saved
three cruisers for tbe czar's future use.
Had the ships been allowed to repair
their damages aud put to sea the Japs
would have scooped la three mora raj
Contented lv Spain.
There ls one charming feature of
Spain—a fine capacity to imagine your
self the center of the earth for the time
being and yet not be offensive. You
meet a man on a donkey in the in
terior and get to talking with bim, and
soon you learn that be has tbe finest
donkey of the province, and so far from
envying any man he It ls who is satis
fied that be Is exciting the admiration,
if not the envy, of bis neighbors. If I
met that same sort of outfit In the
mountains of Colorado or Nevada, the
cavalier would be sure to bold bis bur
ro in contempt and would talk of the
fine horse be meant to have when his
mine had been developed. We Amer
icans preach contentment, but we de
spise the people who are contented.
