Fear In High Places PRESIDENT WILS01TS dennndation of the "industrious and insidious lobby" in Washington, which, be declared, bad been, actively attempting to create pwbtkr sentiment against tertain features of the new tariff bill, might have bad some weight if be bad confined himself to generalities; bat when be made bis charge specific be made it ridiculous. The president's personal statement was as follows: X think that the public ought to know the extraordinary exertions beiag made by the-lobby in Washington to gain recognition for certain alterations of the tariff bill. Washington has seldom seen so anmeroas, so industrious or so insidious a lobby. The newspapers are being filled with paid advertisements calculated to mislead the judgment of public mem not only, but also the public opinion of the country itself. There is every evidence that money without limit is being spent to sustain this lobby, aad to create an appearance of a pressure of public opinion antagonistic to some of the chief items of the tariff bilL ft is of serious interest to the country that the people at large should nave no lobby and be voiceless in these matters, while great bodies of astute men seek to create an artificial opinion and to overcome the in terests of the public for their private profit. It is thoroughly worth the while of the people of this country to take knowledge of this matter. Only public-opinion can check and destroy it The government in all its branches ought to be relieved from this in tolerable burden and this constant interruption to the calm progress of debate. I know that in this I am speaking for the members of the two houses, who" would rejoice as much as I would to be released from this unbearable situation. One result of the statement was the appointing of a senatorial committee which was ordered to investigate the charges and report to the senate within ten days. The committee has undertaken to examine every individual senator, and the report will soon be ready. With one or two exceptions, every senator has denied ray knowledge of the existence of any such formidable body of lobbyists as the president warned against. One senator was found, who expressed his" fear of the activities of men rep resenting special interests, who took senators out to dinner, played golf with them, and even took them riding in automobiles. His whole statement breathed a provincial, ignorant, simple minded, or evil minded suspicion and fear of any such unrighteous social attentions. His principal grievance seemed to be against the "lobbyist" who won the personal friendship of senators and secured their ac ceptance of bis social invitations; as if a United States senator were not able to take care of his virtue when playing golf or riding in an auto or eating dinner with a friend. But this senator's silly fear of undue influence by sack means was not a worse betrayal of a wrong conception of public service, than was the allusion of the president to the use of newspaper advertising in the effort to influence pabKc opinion. The president says: The newspapers are being filled with paid adver tisements, calculated to mislead the judgment of public men not only, bat also the public opinion of the country itself." How it happens that large display space has been used by sugar men, wool growers, and others affected by eertain sections of the new tariff bill, in the lead ing newspapers of Washington, Philadelphia, and Hew York, and in some of the weekly periodicals of general circulation; the advertising space has been used to set forth certain facts about the various industries, in their bearing on tariff schedules, aad to present arguments as to the necessity of careful consideration before radical action should be taken. The advertisements have carried signatures showing their exact authority and foundation, and they have quoted recognised authorities, including government statistics. They have in no sense been masked or concealed as to their purpose, origin, or authorship. They have frankly appealed to the great reading puttie, and have frankly challenged that very public, opinion to which president Wilson seems to think he has a warrant, a title deed, a patent, and a copyright. During recent months tab country has witnessed other demonstrations of this same kind, other direct addresses to the intelligent public, by railroads and public utilities. In the east, the Hew Haven railroad, the Boston Gas company, the Chicago street railways, the strikers and the manufacturers of Lawrence and Paterson, the shipping interests of Philadelphia, the public service commissions of Hew York state and city, the coal producers of Pennsylvania, the telegraph and telephone companies, and numberless other public and semipublic institutions and enterprises, have used this most admirable and wholly innocent means to appeal to the people for consideration of their special problems and a hearing of their side of controversies. In the west, we have recently seen a good example of the same modern and highly commendable purpose in the advertising of the Arizona railroads at the time of the recent referendum election en certain laws affecting railroads; in the advertising of the telephone companies, and the "safety first" companies of the steam and electric roads; and in the Missouri railroads' appeal to the referendum and their subsequent educational campaign through the advertising columns of newspapers. The president uses the term "paid advertisements" as a term of censure or blame, as if the advertising might be wholly proper and admissible if it were sot paid for. The president says that the "paid advertisements" are "calculated to mislead the judgment of public men and the public opinion of the country." Yet they all carry on their face a plain statement of their source, and the facts they present are always open to challenge by any person who thinks or knows that they are falsely presented. The arguments they present are open to controversy and reply by those who differ with them. Such appeals to public men and to public opinion are wholly honorable and straightforward. Ho method of -appeal could be devised by any "special interest" to reach the minds of the public and of public men, that is freer from a taint of improper pressure than this plan of baying display space in decent newspapers and paying the asaal rates for the service, such advertising carrying on its face the exact measure of its authority. This plan is the direct opposite of the socalled "tainted news" which some newspapers have been in the habit of running, wherein the authorship is obscured and every expedient used to deceive the public into thinking such staff has the newspaper's own authority behind it. The president, and those who side with him in the radical features of tariff revision, are simply betraying the weakness of their own cause, and their fear of full and free discussion and of the verdict of "public opinion," when they resent so keenly this most sincere and above-board method of placing both sides of a controverted question squarely before the people. Senators, presidents, or people, who are afraid of the influence of eoW type, have a loose screw in their machinery somewhere. A senator whose virtue is not safe in the presence of a good dinner or of a7 beet sugar advertisement is not very mack of a success as a guardian of the people's rights. When presidents and congresses are bent on doing something in defiance o! public opinion, not in accord with it, then they may have good reason to fear the influence of published facts and of well grounded arguments presented in behalf of those who are to be most directly affected by such acts. o One-Sentence CM7AKKR MEDITATIONS.

Weights Standards Supplied B Early D) Are FoHHd Corroded In the Cellars of Capitol. - By Frederic J. Hagkin W1 i ASHINGTON. D. C. June 9. bureau of standard in Wash ington is the court of last re sort regarding sll matters peStaining to weights ana measures in the United States. It is the suc cessor of the office of weights and measures originally established In the treasurey department, and afterward a branch of the United States coast and geodetic survey. It was from the office of weights and measures that stan dards were supplied to each of the states for the purpose of furnishing the means of a uniform system of weights and measures throughout the nation. How these standards were neglected and the manner in which they are now being called into public service Is but a small part of the excellent work ac complished by the new bureau of stan dards, established in 1901 and at pres ent supplied with an equipment that is the admiration of the scientific world. unnpaniuTeijr lew or the sets of standards supplied Jo the governors of all the states between 1838 and 1850 have been used to any appreciable ex tent. Those belonging to Colorado were found In a subcellar under the state capitol, their appearance indicat ing that they had not been disturbed since they were received and placed there 35 years before. Those furnished to Kentucky are supposed to have dis appeared during the civil war. No knowledge of them is possessed by the present generation. In Iowa the stan dards were discovered in a little vault connected with the state university of Iowa City, which was the state's first capital. When the capital was re moved to Des Moines the former capitol building was turned over to the state university. It is prorided by the con stitution of Iowa that the state super intendent of weisrhtx nnrt ... - shall be selected from the professors of the university. It wu fnnnii ,,. a recent examination that the oil stand ards, the existence of which had been almost forgotten, were in good condi tion, while the standards of the metric system which were furnished at a much later date were corroded and im paired in value. T SIate? VT lar Standards. In Ohio the set of standard weights ?. measures furnished to the state In 1839. by the state law were made the legal standards for the business of the state. Conies of these standards were required to be furnished to each coun ty for use of the county sealer and also to cities upon reauest mil t thai, .-,. f0"- The act of congress passed ! io iriuYiuni mat eacn state should be furnished with one set of standards. When these have been lost as in Ken tucky, or destroyed by fire as in Penn sylvania, the state itself must pav for the new set The bureau of standards is ready to supply euch sets, but the expense of them must be paid by the state. Test State Weights. The bureau of standards was called into existence by the need of a means of securing absolute accuracy in all measuring instruments. It is a public office paid for from public funds and its services are available for every state. The enactment of a federal law is under consideration which will re quire each state to send its standards in at regular intervals to be tested and corrected. It will not be neces sary if the states themselves recognize their responsibility in the matter. Many already are doing this. Within the past year the standards of Connecticut. Indiana, Arizona. Minnesota. Montana, Nevada. New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Wisconsin h hu. . tested by the bureau, besides those of . large numeor of municipalities. The bureau of standards is ready to make the tests upon scales required for public use. the fees in some in stances being paid by the state bene fited. It has been so difficult to se cure dependable and accurate scales suitable for use by the county or city dealers at a reasonable price that some specially constructed scales have been made by several companies from de signs supplied by the bureau of stand ards. McBKHre Records AlHtade. The wonderful commercial and In dustrial development of the country during the past quarter of a century requires the standardization of a num ber and variety of articles non-existent in former years. The United States government must have standards of quality, chemical composition, tempera ture and numerous other qualities, some of which until recently have been unknown even to scientists. The adop tion of these standards is no less im portant than the keeping of them, and both offices are being filled in the numerous departments of the bureau of standards. The development of aviation required some standard of altitude bv which the altitude record of an airship could be gaged before its purchase by the government. A scientific studv of the aneroid barometers which register these altitudes is now In progress at the bureau. In cooperation with the leading electrical interests, reliable copper wire tables have been prepared by the bureau and adopted as standard by that industry. Through Interna tional cooperation the electrical units and standards of England. France and the United States are now in close agreement. . Chemical Test Necessary. The standardization of Industrial processes and products and the appli cation of precise methods in both science and technology hajre become Imperative. The quality of materials depend upon their physical and chemi cal qualities. Each of these may be measured and standardised as exactly as their dimensions are standardized. Because a difference in method or in time consumed in the process of manu facture may change the chemical com position, a standardization of process often is necessary. There Is a "standard specification" for every ordinary article, the con struction or delivery of which is a mat ter of contract. This standard must be based upon the measured properties of the materials and the standard test determines the nrooertie which i- Indispensable in the efficient and eco nomical use of materials. These tests may apply to anything from "the paper which goes Into the manufacture of official stationery, the cement which m used in the Panama anal locks, or the steel girders used In the construc tion of same great building. New Standard Required. With such an increasing demand for standards indicating certain quality the responsibility of providing them naturally falls upon the national gov ernment. The bureau of standards has been organized to meet these wants. Modern requirements have made the care and maintenance of standards a technical laboratory operation which can only be performed by trained spe cialists in amerent orancnes or science. The measure and control of high tem peratures, the magnetic properties of different classes of steel, the testing of illuminants and flame standards are among the newer matters for which scientific and industrial standards must be secured by which to set the standard measures for commerce. Among the objects tested by the bu reau of standards during the past year were 18,000 thermometers. 9000 capac ity measures and 3000 standard weights.

ALEXANDER Hamilton, one of the largest sized young men in history, was born in the West Indies, January 11, 1757. For 12 years Hamilton lived like other boys and suffered the indignity of being patronized and orderedaround by grown ups. Then bis father failed in business and he went into a store to earn his living. In a year or two be was man aging tbe store. Hamilton made a great success in business and in bis spare moments he wrote up a cyclone for tbe local paper so brilliantly that his neighbors clubbed together and sent him to New York to college. On just such little points history balances. If they had sent him to Eng land the United States might have been sold off for junk over 100 years ago. Hamilton entered King's College, now Columbia university, at 17 and a few months later was making speeches nrg ing the colonists to rise and swat the tyrants. At IS he had a wide reputation as a writer of political pamphlets. At 19 he was a captain of 'artillery in tbe revo lution. At 24, a veteran of the late war, he began to manage the new fledged re public. Hamilton served in the continental congress the next year and soon after called a general constitutional conven tion to save the country. "When the con stitution was adopted be wrote essays on it for the Federalist and people used "Urging tbe colonists to rise aad swat tbe tyrants.'' to go three blocks to meet the postman on the day the paper came out. He be came secretary of the treasury which at this time had a few, counterfeit dollars and some old porous plasters in it and in a Jew years he filled that treasury so full that it has never been empty since. Before he was 35 he declined to become chief justice and retired to a well earned rest. Hamilton never became president but enjoyed himself making presidents and then standing in the wings and prompt liw thtfm H ltltwl WAatiiiMvisin t1.maMti J r " .

Adams then proceeded to Taftize all of Hamilton's friends in tbe government and during the next election, without Hamilton's help, he ran Hke a stone dog set in concrete. Jeffer son and Burr tied for the presidency and Hamilton persuaded congress to elect Jefferson. Burr never forgave this and after Hamilton had helped defeat him for the governorship of New York, Burr chal lenged him to a duel It was fought at Weehawken and Burr got his revenge. Hamilton was 47 years old when he died. He had fought in one war, staved off two others, organised a republic, financed it and had elected' three presi dents. Still there are people who believe that young men should be seen and not heard. Copyrighted by George Matthew Adams.

Every little while she had to take out her handkerchief to wipe away the stupid tears that filled her eyes. How could Richard ever have the heart to talk to her as he had done? They had been married only a year and now fee already behaved as If he were the master and she his slave- She had never thought that they would be unkind to one another, but of course she would not remain silent, when he came home from the office in bad humor, so her replies were sharp and biting. Again she wiped her tears away, for coming towards her at the next corner she saw her late mother's friend, her own godmother, Mrs. Berner. Mrs. Berner immediately noticed Julie's red ey"es and made up her mind to find out what was the matter, not from curiosity, but because she was fond of her goddaughter and wanted to help her If she could. "Come home and have a cup of cof- fe-" shcv ""i- "Mary " baked Julie accepted, and a moment later they were sitting in Mrs. Berner's cosy flat enjoying Mary's homemade cakes. "Mary is a jewel," she said. T won der if Richard would find fault with this coffee and cakes, too." "So he is not satisfied with your servant's cooking," Mrs. Berner asked, with a smile. "He is not satisfied with anything any more," Julie answered, and burst into tears. "But what has happened, my dear girl?" "Oh. I am so unhappy! Richard does not love me any more." "What do yau say? Doesn't he love you any more?" "No, I am sure be doesn't or he would not talk to me as he does." And she told about several of their latest quarrels. "But are you quite sure that you are not to blame a little bit yourself?" "I know I am not," said Julie with determination, "but of course I -cannot always be gay and jolly, when he sulks and is unreasonable. There will be no happiness for me in life any more." "Now, that is nonsense, my dear. I am sure .your husband loves you as much as ever, but you are ruining your own happiness quarreling over trifles." "But what do you want me to do?" "I will help you. dear." said Mrs. Ber ner. "I will lend you a talisman." "A talisman?" . "Tea, here it Is," said Mrs. Berner. and handed Julie an old fashioned bracelet. "What do you mean, when you say it is a talisman?" "I will tell you. When I had been married about a year. I too imagined that my husband did not love me be cause we sometimes quarrelled. Then my mother gave me this bracelet and told me to wear it always. She told me that when we were about to quarrel I must turn it three times before I answered my husband and then my answer -would be such that there would be no quarrel. It has helped me many times and I hope it will help you too." Julie thanked her very much, but put no faith In the bracelet. When she came home there was a. strange smell of something burning. With trembling heart ahe went out into the kitchen. Her fears were real ised. The roast had been burnt and the servant was talking to a friend on the kitchen stairs. When Richard came home for dinner I 1.A t.A.4 , . f AW M V, 1 t.l. ttAOTVllfr a 1Anj4 , " nnlr wa". rather"spV,iled: his humor 'was not the best when he was alone with his wife afterwards. "It was disgraceful to offer Miller a dinner like the one you served to night." he said angrily. Julie came very near losing her tem per and was about to give him a hot answer, but at the last moment she remembered the talisman and while she turned the bracelet thrice she thought how annoying it must be to Richard to have his friend discover what a bad housekeeper his wife was, and she an swered very gently: "I am very sorry, Dick, but I shall be very careful not to let it happen again." Richard looked up in surprise, and then came over and kissed her and said that of course it was wrong of him to get cross. One morning a few days later, -when Julie entered the dressing room she found her husband standing at the closet looking very much annoyed. "Toa have not had my gray suit to the tailor to be pressed." he growled. "Why have you not done soT "Because I am not your slave. Julie was about to answer, but again she re membered the bracelet and also that Richard had several times asked her to send out the suit, but she had thoughtlessly forgotten it. "Do not be angry, Dick, dear. she said. "I know it is a shame that I have forgotten it, but I shall send it to the tailor today." Richard again looked at her. greatly surprised, but she pretended not to notice It. "Well. It really does not matter so very much, dear. Today will do Just as well." A week later Julie visited her god mother. She looked as happy as dur ing her 'honeymoon and Mrs. Berner told her so. "Well, godmother. I do feel as If I were having a second honeymoon. I know that Dick loves me as much as he ever did." "And how did you discover that?" "It was the talisman you gave ml." "Then it has brought you luck?" "Indeed it has. I have brought it back, as I do not need it any tiore." "Are you quite sure?" "Quite. I have discovered Its secret." Julie laughed. "One of my own brace lets will do just as well now that I know the truth of the old word, 'A soft answer turneth away wrath.' but I thank you all the same, for it was really your talisman that brought me happiness." WOMAN'S WARNING PREVENTS ESCAPE Blsbee. Ariz., June 9 A woman liv ing on Chihuahua hill, looking out of the window of her home, saw a brick fall from the side of the county jaiL She immediately notified the police and an investigation showed that Jmes Negro, a prisoner, was attempting to bore his way to liberty. He had man aged to retain the heavy knife and fork that ' are sent in with meals to prisoners. With these he had removed about a dosen bricks and. had he been able to have worked a couple of hours more, he would probably have obtained his liberty.

So now I am writing to you quite an unconventional proceeding oh my part, but the difference in our years will excuse the informality. I happended to be sitting near the entrance of the car and saw you stand aside to let soiue ladies step into the car before you came on, and 1 saw you assist one old lady who was some what lame, and you did it in a very gentle and modest way which quite captivated me. Then you steadied your mother's arm as she was about to take a seat at one of those "hold fast" places, and you took her purse and paid the carfare and returned her purse to her, all so quietly and neatly and with a business like air. Be Net Think Mansers Iftrtant. After we had ridden a few blocks and while your mother was talking with her friend, an old man came aboard the car, and you rose and gave him your seat.

All these evidences of good breeding were silent compliments to the mother and father who brought you up, and show how fortunate you are in having had such good guidance. But there are many boys of your age who do not practice the lessons in good manners which they have been taught at home when they are in public places. TJiey seem to think it is not a matter of importance, and they allow the exuberant spirits of childhood to get the better of their training. In every part of America one may see boys of your age and older boys and youths pushing past grown people to enter public conveyances, showing no courtesies to elderly men or women. and sitting while others stand, and in innumerable ways making themselves annoying to persons of good taste. They shout to one another from end to end of crowded cars; they eat fruit and candy and peanuts, and chew gum in public, and scuffle and push one another in the aisles. Boys whose dress and general ap pearance denote well to do parents hurry into car seats with their school books in their hands while ladies stand swinging from straps beside them. It is a curious commentary on our much-vaunted public school system that such manners can exist after oos have entered high school. What good will their knowledge of books do them if they are to grow into young man hood unconscious of their selfish boor lshness? Good Manners Basis of Education. Good manners are the very founda tion of a good education. Without that foundation the question will not stand the test of time. I congratulate you, my dear younir friend, that you have been so beauti fully taught the small, 'gracious court esies of life, and that you put them to use so charmingly. A well bred boy of good manners and gentle deportment Is an ornament to the world. And he is sure to make friends wher ever he goes just as you have made a friend of me without suspecting it.
