In the shelter of that wall ever na tional tree has a chance to tiourlsh. Nor need there be any fe.ir lest we shall envy their prosperity or object to their growth. We shall be only too happ to have them able to take care of themselves. A DIGNIFIF.D CAMPAIGN. Yesterday President Taft called Ii tcvtnf McKinley of his campaign com mittee. Senator Crane and Secretary Ililles iii conference ami discussed the progress of the campaign. After the meeting it became known that the president had insisted that the pub licity bureau in his behalf refrain from personalities and attacks on Col. Roosevelt This is In line with the president's announcement some weeks ago that he would confine his remarks to principles, not men, and that those who speak for him must do like wise. The president has rigidly adhered to this rule, and while some of his lieutenants have broken loose and red a few shots at the ex-presldent, the Taft campaign to date has been divnifled and remarkably free from personal strite Bat this is only what might Ve expected of Mr. Taft It show the splendid qualities of his heart and mind, and his firm convic tion Miat the people want to know what hi administration stands for rather than hear one candidate attack another. So the president in his trips about the country expresses his belief in this and thut great issue and leaves it to the people to determine who la right And a good word, too. may be said for Col. Roosevelt. TTe also has kit his campaign utterances within bounds of political decency and good sense, and w hatever personalities have In en indulged In have emanated from i few individuals which neither eandi l.i r.- a responsible for. but whose re marks nre Ignored In the discussion of th" things Mr. Taft and Mr. Roosevelt gdl oc.lte. It speaks well for the Republican party when two such big men as Taft and Roosevelt, each recognizing in the nthcr i personage worthy of his utmost perrxon.il respect and regard, can con line themselves to principles of gov ernment and in their quest for conven tion support appeal to the best Judg ment of the electors. It Indeed Is a II' nlfie d campaign, at least so far as the principal' are concerned, and a . rcii it to the rival "orces. The situa tion i not without hope that harmony will he restored In the party when the will of the majority of Its members Is Tprcsed. DREAM OF WIRELESS POWER Cr.-ai lint mi's coal strike lends point to the inquiry whether n real ubstHute Is to be found for the power of coal. The strike reveals how com plete is modern dependence upon coal. Therefore with addvi interest we turn to Niiola Tesla's account of his dis- ovcrv of the means of transmitting k ctrt a! t.owcr without w ires. While theoretically Niagara could :urnish suflklent power to supply half the industries and railways of the United States, practically the power of Niagara is llmiti-d to what can be transmitted by wire and to a certain adjacent territory. Most of the unuyed water-power that mid he utilized as electrical energy is in mountains or places remote from Industrial centers. There Is Immense ratef-power running to waste in the ''.dorado tin kles, which is unavailable for practical use. There are the Vic toria Falls of the Zambesi In the Atri CM wilderness. The virtue of coal lies in the fact that its stored energy call he transported to any scene or be car ti d ihout by the locomotive it is to serve. Mr Tesla sees clearly the problem nd thinks he can solve it. By his plan electrical power generated at Nia . II, i ould be delivered in Minneapolis or New Orleans just as vel as in Boffntn, or such power generated In ew ..-alasjd could be delivered ' in London or Manchester, as well as In Wellington or Auckland. Distance Is e'l.ctcd by I'. sla. and wires are not employed. The earth and the air arc the transmitters. .Mr Tesla claims he has discovered law of electrical transmission, hot . .. - n t promise immediate application ..f the law in the manner indicated. Indeed, he doubts whether mankind Is vet ready for such application. Men will have gradually to grow up to the new knowledge and to approach the application by degrees. Meneili ent genie that coal has been to mankind, what an emancipation re lief from Its necessity wraild be! No morn coal pits, no more oal smoke no more black diamond trains and heavy wagon loads, no more sooty fire men and stokers In bowels Of ships' I BjOjajy turned on hy a switch. Invis ible energy, without furnaces, without wire. It -pays to advertise. Divorce Taking Us Back to Conditions of Prim itive Civilization By FRANCIS C. PEA BODY.
