NECESSITY OF A PACIFIC FLEET If the United States had a power-' ful fleet tin the Pacific, one corres ponding r o its interests in that part of the world, there would be no chance for jingoes ;e *tir up m'.-| pleasant sensations and friction, and j the Japanese inquietudes would be: allayed by a sober sense of responsi- j bility. Preparedness is a great peacemaker, a fact especially empha- Sized in the papers of President Washington, Holding a large fleet at every outlying point exposed to secret concentration and attack is impossible, but our navy is too far from the Pacific when it must double a long continent to get there. Japan holds the short line not only against the Philippines, Hawaii and much of Alaska, but could, at this time, place any of our Pacific ports on the defensive. The eventual outcome of any such assault is scarcely In question, but this country was hu miliated in 1814 by the destruction of its capitol, notwithstanding the latent national strength and re sources. Threats on the Pacific, whether real or worked up by jingoes, must necessarily arouse attention until until our fighting force on that ocean represents something positive. Japan has possibly developed a purpose to assert itself as a world power, if not as the arbiter of the east and the Pacific. It has a strong navy in the Pacific, and we have aot. Conse quently, anything that Japan may propose will in a certain sense be one-sided, no matter what the intent. It is a pity that the old friendly at titude of the two nations should be disturbed, or that Japan, oh the strength of the resistance it offered to Russia's territorial designs, should change its old position of na tional defense and peaceful devel opment to one of exaggerated ambi tion and over self-estimate. Perhaps lit has not such tendency in its su preme authority; but, in any case, the United States must remedy its present defenselessness in the Pa cific.—St. Louis Globe Democrat. It is a very pitiful appeal that has just been put up to the Hague by the special delegation of Koreans who were not invited to the conference and whose appearance there has been greeted with frowning disapproval by the Japanese and with uncomfort able sensations by the other delega tions. The uninvited Koreans have , made an appeal to the conference that i 3 likely to be in vain, but that is none the less interesting to the world at large, and that will have its effect on world sentiment even if it does not get officially before the conference. The Koreans claim that the Japanese in defiance of treaties and moral obligations, have simply appropriated Korea as the spoil of the Ruso-Jap war and are exploiting it for the benefit of Japan and with out regard for anlyshrdlumwfpyyp o atitny regard to ther ights of Korea as an independent nation. This ap pears to be perfectly true on the face of it. Japan did go into the war with Russia with the avowal that she did not intend to profit by the war in that way. She based her statement on the statement of the United States when it engaged in the war with ...... < the war with Spain. Of course, every-1 one has seen since the close of the war that Japan has taken over Korea bodily, and it is said that what she is doing openly in Korea, she is do ing secretely in Manchuria, making It a Japanese province. It will be instructive to see what view the rest of the world tak?s of this defiance of treaty obligations. HIS GREATEST CATCH. Those who have heard the Rever end William A. Sunday, the evangel ist, in one of hi 3 characteristic evan gelical sermons, will never forget him or the sermon. In his famous "Base Ball Sermon," he describes his first afternoon on the diamond after his conversion. His words are the moa forcible. j "That afternoon we were to play I the Detroit club. The race was close and there was much rivalry. The crowd was immense and the gam was a marvel. The score stood 2 to j 3 in favor of Chicago. Detroit was 'at bat with two men on bases an 3 j two men out. John Clarkson. then as I firmly believe the best pitcher In ' the country, was in the box for Cnl ; cago, and Kelly was behind the bar. ! Charley Bennett, the best batter for j th? Detroits, was at the plate and he i had 3 balls and 2 strikes. Fate i [ hung on the next bal Ito be pitched. I [I knew Bennett's weakness and his strength. I knew he couldn't hit a high ball (I don't mean a Scotch high ball), but he could kill a low one, so 1 yelled to Clarkson as I squared myself out in the right field, "You know him; high and in." Clarkson dug his toe into the earth, , swayed backward until his hands clasping the ball almost touched the grojjnd in his famous delivery, and then like a bent hickory sapling sud denly released, he whipped forward and sent the ball hissing toward the plate. He had grasped his sphere for the high inshoot, but in some manner the grip failed him. As the ball sped from his hand it took a dive and started lo split the pan Just at Kelley.'s knees. 1 heard a sharp crack. It was a familiar sound to me. It was made by a stout stick of ash striking a league ball squarely on the nose. I glanced into the air and saw the black sphere sailing away over Clarkson'a head. It came for right field, and I knew in an in stant that it was tip to me to save that game. Quickly judging the fight of the ball I turned and ran. keeping the ball in the tail of my eye ovt. my shoulder. The crowd of 15,000 spectators were sttill as death. They had slopped over into the field from the bleachers and barred my way. 'Clear the track; get out of my way,' I yelled, and the crowd separated like the Red Sea before the hosts of Israel. On I went, and on that ball came. I saw that it was going be yond the field; I judged thai it would light in the bleachers. Up the seats I ran, people tumbling to right an;? left to clear a way for me. Five steps up I paused. The ball was up on me. Leaning far over, I stretched upward and then uttered my first in voluntary prayer: O Lord,' I prayed, "if you help me catch that ball I'll be ever so thankful to you.' Spat went the ball as it hit in my hand—and stuck. You ought to have beard the crowd yell. Al Johnson, a brother of Tom Johnson, rushed up to me and said: 'Here's a ten for you, Billy, and to morrow I will buy you tthe best suit of clothes In Chicago.' And he paid $85 for that suit. I believe God helped me to catch that ball." Since that great catch, "Billy" has caught the devil out many a time. — The Lyceumite. It seems that the Hague confer wants something in the way of float ing mines that will be like a good many promissory notes, thoroughly worthless thirty days after floatnig. THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE INHERITANCE TAX The inheritance tax in the Unittd j States is traveling toward the com-J mon death duties in Great Britain. Apparently the federal government is going to leave it to the states, ex cept in the emergency of war. The federal inheritance tax was repealed in 1902, but one state after another has taken it up. The tendency is more and more t? make it apply to all inheritances with increasing burden a? tbe heirs are farther removed in blond from the testator. Some states, like Mass achusetts, began with a tax on col lateral inheritances only. In New York we believe that these are extra ordinarily heavy in comparison with the tax on natural heirs. In every state there is a graduated scale with larger exemptions in favor of the nearer heir. The last session of the Massachu setts legislature enacted a complete inheritance tax law in place of the former uniform five per cent on col lateral inheritance alone. The new LADY FRANCIS COOK. Formerly Tennessee ('lafliri, who has been a champion of wo man suffrage in America an j Eng land for forty years. law retains the five per cent tax on collateral inheritance outside of two specified classes, exempting 'vlitf ious and educational institutions and bequests under $1,000. The first class includes father, mother, husband, wife and children, has $10,000 exemption md pays from one to five per cent on a scale ranging from $25,000 to above $250,000. The other class includes brothers, sisters, nephews and nieces, has an exemption of $1,000 and pays Irom three to live per cent on a scale from $25,000 to above $100,000. This tax is expected to yield about $1,500,000 in addition to $600,000 from the present tax on collaterals. The distinction between direct and collateral inheritances in taxation sometimes leads to queer revelations in probate courts. When a very rich man in Milwaukee left a fortune to his adopted daughter, a matron of good position, the federal inheri tance tax was half a million dollars, till the lady sec up the fact, pre viously carefully guarded, that her relation to decedent was near enough to secure a large reduction or com plete exemption.—Minneapolis Trib une. The coarse Of the San Francisco grafting prosecutions seems to indi cate that it is a good deal safer to give bribes than it is to receive them. EVER THINK ABOUT IT "There is no quality in business life so valuable as courtesy." .The above i s one of the maxims printed on the card of a prominent business house in Spokane. It is given to the employes of tbat store because it means more business for the house when the employes fol low out the idea, and it means high er salaries to the clerks who take warning from the precept. There are few better qualities in business than courtesy, neither are there many better examples to follow in every day life than that of the man who is courteous. It is better than occasional diplomacy, for the man who is constantly courteous in his actions soon flnas it natural to be so. He not only makes business —he keeps friends. If every manager of a business house appreciated the importance of courtesy, its application would be more general. The clerk who treats every customer with uniform polite ness and consideration, whether the latter buys or not, will be the clerk who will attract the most trade, and the business house which has no other kind of clerks will have the most business, everything else being equal. One may go further than that. It will be a pleasure to travel when every street car conductor, every pullman conductor, porter and rail road official treats the travellers with courtesy. It will be a more pleasant world when every man dis pensing courtesy is paid back by the same kind of "politeness. Courtesy is one of the main qualities of a gentleman. It costs nothing—and it does a lot of good. For Sale. School district No. 46 will offer for sale the following described property, tow it: Begin at a point on the north line •f Sec. 4, tp. 22 N..
