THE LATIN AMERICANS A Illannosln of What lln Come To lie Regarded na n Xert Type of the Human Ilnce, TO KEY WEST BY RAIL. Henry Link M. Flnglrr's I'nrtrrlnklng Will A merli n nnd Culm more Closely. A speck of reef far out In a tropical sea, much nearer lo tho coa.st of Cuba than to any port of Its own country, Key West ha long been the most remote and Incongruous city claimed by an American State. In days gone by Its spongers, wreckers, and Spnnlsh-spcakIng cigar makers nor more dreamed of ln-ltig linked with th mainland by rail than do the people of Honolulu. Until ten years ago their nearest home port was Tampi, 2.YI miles up the Gulf of Mexico. Then the Flagler railroad, which had lieen advanc ing down the strip of wilderness along the Atlantic seaboard, brought Key West within naoh of Miami, I.TT miles away, by steamers which skirted the far-flung chain of the Florida keys. A railroad is now to he pushed, with stupendous difficulties and at nn expense of Jlfi.'Wi.nro, through the Atlantic to a remote reef- what Is the reason for to monumental an undertaking? The answer lies In Henry M. Fl:igl"r's belief that the island of Cuba w.ll some day strike It? destined gnit of prosperity and growth. For Cuba s the true obje tlvp of Hip raMroad to Key West. When the work is finished, huge ferries will carry solid trains to nnd from Havana; and a through-rail route from New Vork to Cuba will bp complPiPil. Ralph D. Palnp, in the February Everybody's .

Mr and Mrs Bishop, who for nenrlv seven years have had rhargo or the Kurn Hattln Homes for boys 111 Westminster, have resigned from the work. Their resignation Is to take effect April 1, 't which time Mr. and Mrs. Bishop pur pose a trip to lingland where they are to visit with relatives. General rpgret uy the boys and townspeople Is expressed at their leaving, savs the Bellows Falls Times. 1'lin tru.stfps. at the meeting at which the resignation was accepted, offered resolutions appreciating very highly their work, regretting the termination of their connection with the Homes, and accept ing the resignation to take effect at their convenience. Mr. and Mrs. Bishop came to Kurn Hattln in April. 1M1, from Lynn, Mass. The finances of the Homes were then in a low state, there being a mortgage, on the property of and other in debtedness to several thousands of dol lars. In IMS the land near Westminster street was sold and the mortgage on the remaining property was reduced to f:.. This was paid by a wealthy New Hamp shire lady, and the property was eleareJ of all encumbrance. In the summer of ll the treasurer, K. M. Abbott of Bos ton, died and in the fall of the same year, Miss L. M. Strain of Burlington, who had successfully repi isentnl the work in Vermont, died also. These seri ous blows to the cause almost decided the trustees to give up the Warner Mem orial Home at Saxtorrs River, and pos sibly the Westminster Home also. With t" boys In their care, Mr. and Mrs. Bishop were unwilling to consider lite, matter and begged for two months grace. They both visited Interested wealthy people, mostly In this State, with results that warranted the tni'tees continuing both homes. The homes were without a treasurer for nearly a year. Mr. Bishop acting In that capacity and was ap pointed general manager also. K. L. Walker nf this village was dectetl treas urer in lMfl. In May of the same year, Mrs. I'., C Thayer of Keene died, bequeathing thn Homes the sum of JlO.iXO, beside an ad ditional flS.ono to be paid on the death of one of the beneficiaries of the will, of the former amount JS.W0 was received in 1X4 and the deficit of previous ears was paid. From this time the homes have been .able to meet their bills as they came due. Mr. and Mrs. Bishop felt the need of better equipment for the work, and brought their plans to the attention of friends of the cause. Mrs. Frederick Billings of Woodstock, this State, inter ested her friends In a new school build ing, and with her own generous contri butions raised nearly all of the required sum. She also contributed thn cost of an annex to the main building to include kitchen and other rooms. This schoil building is now nearly completed, while the annex Is finished and has been oc cupied for about six weeks. Other Im provements have been added, thn princi pal one being a well arranged and sani tary wa.sh room for the hoys. Mr. Bishop has always interested him self In the outside work, and with M' boys' help established a good sized poul try plant, clearing t-lon profit last oar. About ISO fruit trees have also bee-, planted in the poultry yards. An endow ment fund has been started, which now amounts to )i:,vi. But the boys are t!v greatest assets of the work, and one old gentleman who recently visited the homes, and sent money to' the superin tendent to help them have a happy Christmas, wrote; "1 often th nk of your little troop of smiling, happv and Jolly boys."

Writing In Collier's for January 18, WW, Mr. Arthur Iluhl reviews Senhor Manoel llomfim's "A America lAtlna" and anal lzcs the South American character and conditions. Mr. Iluhl says: Tho average North American forgives fow things less readily than the lack of what he calls "horse sense." Ho himself generally has It. linvlronment and In heritance combine to give It to him. Ills environment has lirought him Into Im mediate contact with things our leisure class Is as yet almost negligible and things have for him that reality which comes only from clnso observation of, and physical experience with, them. Ills life, In a country comparatively new has given hint plenty of practical 'problems to solve, and all his Inheritance of liberty, of thought and action has mado him in itiate Invent, work out such problems by himself. Tim cause of the very common at titude of superiority with which the North American regards his southern neighbors Is his belief that the latter probably lack these qualities. They are, nfter nil. as Iip would put It, "dago's" summing up In that phrase a feeling very rniieh like that entertained bv tho old-fashioned Briton for the "frog-eaters" across the channel; a nation that, In nnv contingency where a practical grasp of causes and effects, ways nnd means "horse sense" tn a word Is re quired, ho would be his neighbor's superior. There are obvious explanations of tl feeling, insular and Ignorant as It gen erally Is. The romlc oppra revolution, so dear to occasional story-writers In rur magazines, Is one. The newspapers ap proximately .UTiirate mirrors of the peoplp's siirfare life -are bookish and verbose. There Is little news-this, nf eoiir.se. does not refer to "fi Prensa" or "KI Dinrio" of Buenos Avres, "lil Mer eurio'' of Santiago, the "Journal do Comerc'o" of Dlo, and papers like them and many communications from "llt- terv" correspondents who write about street stlK nr trolley -ears and quote up unci down from Paul Verlalne to Homer and describe snme little ga'den parlv as though It were Versailles. Their politicians speak In dithyrambs. Their engineers, even when graduated from northern te"hnlcnl schools and able to draw beautiful blue-prints, are often dis placed In the field bv gringos of much less theoretical training. It was after encountering many such manifestations nr a general trait as these during the long pilgrimage which was n-,-ltnll.. -1 ... .. .

And here was a book which, paragraph by paragraph. numbered and lettered, marched sanely along, went down below the vivacious externals of South Ameri can life and Interrupted them. It Is Impossible, in this place and space. more than to hint at the Interest which such a work had. read it an Instant so opportune. For hero, in the land of dithyrambs, w-as a man who looked plain facts in the face; who analyzed Saiirh merlean weakness as relentlessly and often as enterta!ninglvhv rtilrlsli re. sponsihlllty is picked to piece., by Mr. Shaw; a thinker with a scientific point of view In a continent where saeh a thing Is almost unknown. I say "Shaw" advisedly, for I am not putting forth this puiily negative criti cism as a final Judgment nor as my own opinion. Various works, one on.w the same title by Renor Sylvlo Romeo, have been written to refute !t. It S offered rather as a vrrv animated "ho. man document" a proof that t.-iiln merlcans are not only aware of de ficiencies, but have the intellectual cour age to search them out nnd expose them. Those familiar with Bogehofs "Plnsc nnd Politics," to which ho rpfers in his prpface. and with kindred works, which treat the State as an organism subject to much the same phenomena of growth, heredity, and decay as animals and plants, will readily understand Senhor Domfirm's point of view. Briefly, the hook is a study of national patriotism as developed In Spain and Portugal, trans ferred to the South American colonics. ind showing in Inheritance to-day. The conquerors. Inflamed with the na tional Idea of the Iberian world, heroic adventures, conquest, and spoliation parasitism, in a word, pv'ng without work, however this prosaic r.ict was glamoured over fell on the sontln rn con tinent, sacked- exterminated. While :t solid, healthy, political organism was spontaneously growing up in North America, this system of exnloratlon and subjugation went relentlessly on. "Prog- ress was condemned as Useless, intelli gence preseeuteil as dangerous. liverv- hodv explored and oppressed. Production depended on the number of captives nnd the cruelty of captors, The colony was over the captive, the treasury over the colony, religious absolutism and nr. rhalsm over all. Wealth poured hack to the peninsula. The metronolis hpam.,.1 fairly barked Its joy. It had realired its ideal, complete parasit.sm " Parasitism so complete as this became, naturally, a congenial tendency. When the colonists revolted, the revolutionists, having had no experience In democracy, and oppressed by the Iberian Idea of vonsvrvatlsm,'' no sooner had thrown off the old dictator than, forthwith, thev constituted themselves dictators and continued the same under another name. Not mere Latin volatility, then, but, upar.nloNii.illy, this ingiained conservat ism en uses Snit'i Anicilcnn revolutions, "Forgetting that conserving can not lie liiade anvbndv's especial active function, but that society conserves itself. Inde pendent of any outside fon-e, by the simple fact that It exists: that It is an organism In evolution, a body In move ment, total, continuous, integral, like u river in Its descent, these conn'rviiiloies set themselves up as dams to stop, Ihis normal progress." The revolutionists "are levolutlonar v up to the moment of making the revolution: us long us the leform is limited to words. To-nlgbt they are apostles, inflammatory, radical.
