for ages but for the coming of the
white man. Nor did the white man
come to much purpose, so far ae he
is concerned. Ol the 191,lK)l) people
on the island over 55 percent are

making 45 percent. Of the Hi per

Caucasia', peoples, Tneso Islands
are one of tho beauty spots of thn
world, but fur some reason It is not
n "white man's country." For res
idence nothing from all accounts
could be more delectable, but the
climate Invites to leisure rather
than to work. . Tho natives are the
right product of that environment,
and it is a pity that tlm strong and

Honse-Building in China '
When a Chinaman would build a
house, he consults a wizard itistoad
of an architect. Ho decldeB the spot

never toward tlie'eoutlK unleBs it is

out tho evil breath not human
breath,, made by eobat'co'jtfr' liquor,
-nor malarial vapors, but some mys
terious and fatal somethlng'that no
one knows .much about. ,i
Then the wizard locates he spot
for the kitchen, and he settles the
jthne to begin digging, for- if
earth od should be at home
e the
workman might thrust the spade
through his skull, and the family
would all die.
The question must also be 86ttled
whether this Ib the right year to
build. There are lucky years and
there are unlucky years. For In

any year beginning with an even

Root Declares Lea Resolution
Wholly .Void Without Le-
-gal Effect
Washington, Feb; lii. Four
S.uators resisted vigorously .to
day the proposal of the Senate
Committee on Contingent Ex
penses and Interstate Commerce
that a special group of five Sna
tors be appointed to r.q-operatee
with the Interstate Commerce
Commission in its efforts to se
cure access to the flies of the
Louisville & Nashville railroad.
A desultoly debate was carried
on for several hours after Senator
Williams, of Mississippi, had fav
orably reported the resolution of
Senator Lea, of Tennessee, pro
viding for the special committee.
"Mortifying Failure''
Mr. Brundegee-'s argument
deaU with the subject of the jus
tice or iu justice of Smate action
while the courts were dealing
with the point at issue. Mr.
Sutherland made a long legal
argument in his opposition. Mr.
Works attacked the" Lea resolu
tion on the ground of4-inexpedi
ency aud superfluity, while Mn
Root contributed the most striking-
passage of -the debate by- ex
claiming hotly :' . ' Vmir"..
1 ' W.e can. do nothing mqre t'liau

mission lias-already ( done.' In
making the preliminary i.nvesti
gati.on the commission has-been

This resolution is wholly void
aud cau have, no Iqgal effect.
Its passage will simply subject
the Santite to' mortifying failure
in an attempt to exercise power
it does not possess."
"Those who spoke against the
Lea resolution seemed to accept
it as a matter of course that if
the ollicials of the railroads are
summoned for contempt of the
Senate they will go to jail rather
than produce papers which they
regard as privileged, and which
the speakers uls seemed to re
gard as probably privileged,"
Score Commlnlon
Drande'gee scored the com
mission for not being "willing to
uwait the .outcome of the due
process of law."
"Wo think the L. & N.is using
the time exhausted iu court,'?,
remarked Senator Lea, "to de
stroy many of the records the
Senate has demauded."
"A remarku bl proceeding,"
scoffed Mr. Braudegee. lrou

may be as guilty as hell and

right to inspect the documents
before he turned them over."
'But they mixed up the privi
leged with the unprivileged doc
uments apparently," repliedMr.
WillianiF, "and insist that they
shall.judge which is which,"
"If somebody rushed in on me
ip the eaiiie way," retorted the
Connecticut Senator, '"I should
be inclined to exorcise my own
tiidument. too. 1 would be at
