Washington May QS Special
Whatever the general belief
concerning the policy which add
ed to theterritory of this country
the Philippine Islands one thing
is certain and that is that hav
lug gotten them we find them
very handy for experiments
The echoes of the struggle in the
country over the ratio of coinage
are hardly dead yet nearly
every day some one comes for
ward with a nev scheme to pro
Vide for a more clastic currency
and though all bayed impractica
ble or at least not sufficiently
proven to try on this country
Uncle Sam is now about to at
tempta readjustment of rates of
the Philippine coinage to say
nothing of establishing a more
elastic currancy It wont mat
ter much to the little brown
brothers for aside from having
any money he generally lacks a
a pocket to put it in All ratios
look alike to him the only way
in which elasticity can appeal
tohis dusky soul is by stretching
Out his income As a matter of
fact the readjustment is not to
be undertaken so much in behalf
of the Filipinos as to protect the
government from loss through
the exportation of the silver
deco or dollar from the archipel
ago The great trouble at pres
ent id due to the fact that that
coin while having a purchasing
power of fifty cents contains
fifty two and onehalf cents
worth of bullions Very natur
ally it is expected and Uncle
Sam loses two and onehalf cents
on each one The readjustment
will give a longsought opening
to amateur financiers all over the
country and it is expected that
something like a million sugges
tions will be received by the Sec
retary of war under whose super
vision the work will be carried on
The call which Senator Ald
rich Republican leader of the
Senate made at the White House
this week is taken to be signifi
cant in many ways It is the
first which he has made since the
rate bill came into the Senate
and shows that although gener
ally referred to as the chief Op
ponent of President Roosevelt in
the rate fight he has not let the
Presidents victory rankle The
President got what he wanted
in the shape of effective legisla
Mon and Announced himself as
satisfied Contrariwise Mr Ald
rich didnt get all that he was
after and consequently didnt
do any announcing There was
some fear that the Rhode Island
er dissatisfied with the result
might stir up trouble in the Re
publican ranks where he is a
power but his call at the White
House has quieted as much
rumor It is understood that
Mr Aldrich will support Mr
Roosevelts presidential candi
date even though that candidate
be such a Rooseveltian as Mr
Taft of whom it is now whisper
ed that the White House and not
the Supreme Court bench will be
his next field of activity
The United States is about to
see another of its pet i industries
taken up by a foreign country
according to the Department of
nothing less indeed than the
production of maple sugar
Sugaring off among the Alps
may sound a bit fantistic but
this is just what will take place
experiments now being carried
on In Switzerland are successful
Some mouths ago 800 sugar ma
ples were imported by that coun
try from New England and altho
half of them died from poor ship
ment and lack of proper care
the other half are now flourish
fag with the result that large
plantings are contemplated in
the immediate future The re

A GOOD BHOWi
A Country School Marm Presented at
Olymphic Theater
The following isfrom the
Green River News
f i Country School Marm
presented at the Opera house
Friday night by a company com
posed of young ladies and gentle
men from Earlington Ky af
forded a couple of hours of the
most pleasant recreation
The play which was quite an
interesting comedy drama with
wlithjust
just enough tragedy to make it a
little exciting was well dope
each character being portrayed
with a reilism so true to life as
to at once demonstrate the per
former an amatuer of far more
than ordinary ability
Each member of the company
composed of fifteen or twenty
people did his part Well and if
with our humble ability to crit
icise dramatic performance we
should attempt to name those
who played their parts exceed
ingly well as all would concede
We should begin with the leading
lady Miss SueFoard who repre
sentod the Country School
Marm then should follow in
regular order as the arrange
ment of the play brought them
before the footlights Misses
Shelby Wise Minnie Fenwick
Celeste Moore Mrs Frances
Kline and Messrs Fred Ashby
Robt L Feuwick Jr J
Strobher Hancock Dr 0 B
Johnson Chas Truempy and
Arden Livingston
While we cheerfully commend
the above named ladies and
gentlemen for good work as the
dramatis personae at the same
time we should state that the
quartet composed of Messrs
Leonard Goodloe George Rob
inson Nick A Herb and Leon
ard Huff were generously ap
plauded and called back for the
third performance by the au
dienco
And last but by no means
least except in years and
stature we should like to Cora
mend most sincerely the work of
little Miss F Layne in her song
specialties as constituting a
splendid feature of the enter
tainment
The entire company of re
fined and cultured young ladies
and intelligent and gentlemanly
young men won the highest
esteem of those who came in
contact with them either as
patrons of the entertainment or
in social intercourse on the
streets
The only regret expressed is
that owing to some confusion
caused by the management can
celing the date at one time
Counter attractions had been ar
ranged by a number of our
young people which could not
be changed and the attendance
on this account was much
smaller than it otherwise would
have been
bavebeeIiDr B Johnson and Col
Arden Livingston who had the
management in charge espec
ially impressed our people very
favorably for the business like
and professional mariner in
V h i oil everything connected
with their visit here was at
