McKinley nnd Domestic Monopoly.
In the platform on which Mr. McKinley
Was elected his party declared Its opposition
to "domestic nieuopAly." The president can
not be igr.orani of the fact that monopoly has
never so extended and intrenched itself ns
since liis election. Nearly every hranch of
business In which combination can be ef
fected is now controlled by a trust, in de
fiance at law.
Has there been no "desertion of duty" In
the failure of the administration to prevent
or to punish these organized robberies?— Ne

New e*i Idence turns up every day that the
whole power of the war department is being
Used :o cr::-'; Gen. Miles. It gives out of
ficial corresrondenoe, very likely garbled, In
the hope of discrediting him. This Is an
o'd trick of Alger's. He began it wiih a
confidential letter of Roosevelt's last August,
which he unblushingly gave to the press in
mislead-tng extracts, and then went about
Washington boast*|ng that he had "laid out
Teddy." Just now he und all the force of
his Offlce are engaged in laying oui Miles.
'Ihey furnish the new venal newspapers
which support them with "official" copies
oi contracts, etc., all showing the zeal and
capacity with which the war department can
wage war when It Is against the general
commanding. Still more astonishing than
this, if lhat were possible, is Che furious at
ta '• on Gen. Miles made by Dr. Conner, of
McKinley's precious investigating commis
sion, lie seized the occasion of a "banquet"
in Cincinnati to denounce the commanding
general of the army, and to declare: "If
the board of inquiry reaches the same con
clusion as the w.-.r investigating csammittee,
tfcen the commanding general will be dis
missed from the army of the United States."

President's Object Lesson.

the lesson may be effective.— New York Times.
The Dwindling Rothschild*..
The fact that Baron Ferdinand de Roths
child died without issue suggests that the
house of Rothit-hild threatens to dwindle in
to very stnail numbers. The founder, Mayer
Amselm, left at his death, in 1812, five sons,
and Jewish fami.ies are proverbially large!
yet the progeny of these five sons today la
far from numerous, either in England or
on the Continent. The founder of the house
had little to do with England. It was his
son Nathan, who came here in ISOO, who laid
tho foundation of the fortunes of the English
branch. Baron Nathan married a Oohea, buy
his eldest son. Lionel, married a daughter
of Baron Anselni Rothschild, aad his eldest
daughter a so:i of Baron Anselm. Lionel's
son, the present Lord Rothschild (who suc
ceeded a sonless uncle in the baronetcy), mar
ried his cjusin. The intermarriage of the
family may perhaps help to explain its not
Increasing and multiplying.— London Chron

Sarah Bernhardt Is not only going to play
"Hamlet," but she proposes to costume the
piece in the flowing robes of the ninth
FeiUory, ••This is an innovation." she says,
'for •Hamlet' has hitherto been presented
in the dress of the Middle ages."
Now we are told in the first chapter of
'The Hystorie of Hamblet" that the events
recorded took place "long time before the
kingdome of Denmarke received the faith of
Jesus Christ;" and the fact that ambassa

The second lecture In the Church club
course on great men ae.d great periods iv
English church history, will be delivered
in Christ church on Tuesday evening, Feb
28. by Rt. Rev. George F. Seymour, D. D.?
LL. 1).. bishop cf Springfield, upon the topic!
•Lranm r and the Reformation Period." This
Is an epoch in church history of profound in
terest to all Protestant Christendom and it is
not too much to say that there is no prelate
in the American church who is better
equipped than Bishop Seymour is to handle
it 1n.,-1 clear, forcibl. and statesmanlike way.
Bishop Seymour is a native of New York
city, where he graduated at Columbia college
as Greek salutatorian and head ot his class. In
1850. and from the general theological semi
nary in 1854. From the time of his ordination
he has always recognized the importance of i
and lias been deeply interested In, education
under the auspices of the church. His early
ministry was spent at Annandale, N. V
whare he founded and was the first warden
of St. Stephen's coll.ge, an institution chiefly
intended for young men who expected to
study for holy orders after completing their
co.legtaite education. In 1865 he became pro
f Sfor of ecclesiastical history In the General
Thee logical seminary in New York, and later
ill ■ dean of the seminary, both of which po-
Eltions he held until his consecration to the
episcopate, June 11, IS7S. as bishop of Spring
n id. He brought to hi 3 new work the re
sults of deep and thorough study and a wide
experience. He is a scholar, an ecclesiastical
historian, a man of great culture. He is an
eloquent speaker, a sound and exact th.clo
g.an. an accomplished canonist, a skillful con
troversialist, a ready writer, a born leader
Possessed of a marvelous memory, great
familiarity and readiness as to the events of
English church history, he is able to ad
dr.ss his audi nee freely and fo-reibly upon
such topics without reference to notes. He
ranks as one of the great crators and contro
versialists In the American church, and is in
fr gut-nt dem-Mid as special preacher In
thise days of doubt and shifting in matters
theological he has ever been a stanch and
courageous defender of the faith, and is not
inar:ly cahed the Athanasius of the Ameri
can church. H-e has strong convictions, and
the courage to express them with no uncer
tain sound. When upon the platform or in
tho pulpit his presence and manner his
solidity and force in arguni nt, remind cc
of Daniel Webster.

Senator-elect W. A. Clark, of Montana, in
spite of tho fact that his fortune Is counted
by tens of millions, is said to work as hard
and constantly as tho man who carries the
tin pail. Several years ago a Washington
man visited Montana with a letter of in
troduction- to Clark. He found the million
aire seated in a plain, poorly furnished of
fice, working as if life depended upon it
He was pleasant enough, but It could be
plainly semi that he hud no time to devote
to the gentleman from the capital. Noting
this, Mr. X. retired, not, however, before
he had received an invitation from Mr.
Clark to return lv an hour and lunch with
him. The meal was of the plaiuest descrip
tion and hurriedly disposed of. Again there
was no time to talk, but Mr. X. managed to
make Clark consent to meet him the follow
ing morning. v
"What time will you come around?" asked
"Any time that will suit you," X. replied.
"Seven o'clock, then," responded Clark,
explaining the earlineSs of the hour by say
ing: "I am rather an early riser. It Is a
habit I have got into. I do not ask my em
ployes to get around any earlier than I do
myself. I am always at my office at 7
o'clock every morning when 1 am in town."
Subsequently Mr. X. ascertained that the
office hours of this Croesus were from 7
a. m. to 7 p. m., with the brief interval of
half an hour in the middle of the day tor

If its aim was wide the Democratic national
committee made a mistake when it intrusted
the chairmanship to a gentleman resident iv
Arkansas, necessarily not in touch with the
great body of the people in the republic nor
in sympathy with the party struggling as a
minority and hoping for success in common
wealths which were not politically as solid
as Arkansas. Mr. Jones was net broad. He
was not familiar with large affairs, HI3
knowledge of men and of business methods
was necessarily circumscribed. His environ
ment was not that which would produce a
capable actor upon the large stage to the
center of which he was thrust. His inca
pacity, his narrowness were demonstrated
in the campaign of '96. That he is lacking
in intelligent grasp is seen almost daily.
If the Democratic party is to be committed
indefinitely to the Ideas which have their
strongest hold upon such states as Missis
sippi and Arkansas Jones is as well suited to
the chairmanship of the executive committee
as any other Democrat, for, as the campaign
last fall demenstrated, under his manage
ment the party goes from bad to worse; not
that a change in the chairmanship would at
all affect the result, but the narrowness of
the whole view emphasized by Jones tends to
make Democracy merely sectional and dimin
We have recent demonstration of the inad
equacy, the lack cf tact and knowledge which
characterize Jones. He deems that an ad
visory committee is necessary and while go
ing to Michigan he chooses the national com
mitteeman of that state; he gees out3ide the
national committeeman In Illinois to select
one who is in opposition to the Democratic
party as recognized by local organization.
Jones deliberately "throws down " as the
Phrase is. Mr. Gahan, who last November
was a victim in part of Jones' incompetency
and his lack of tact and discernment, to take
up with Mr. Altgeld and, necessarily to en
courage factional strife in Democratic" ranks
This is not the work of a deft leader. It
is. on the contrary, a proceeding character
istic of a stupid leader. He should use all
means to conciliate. As for crushing Jones

Globe Year Book.
Vastly Interesting to* Everyone.
The Herald acknowledges the receipt
of the Tear Book and Almanac issued
by The St. Paul Globe for 1899. It
is a very valuable compilation of sta
tistical and other information, not only
for the editor, but for every intelligent
citizen. The work consists of 600 pages
and contains much pertaining to the
state that cannot easily be found else
where. It embraces a complete list of
all the state officers, the officers of the
state institutions and state societies, a
list of the names of the legislators,
standing committees, and the names
of district judges, the names of their
districts, etc. It has a large amount
of political information relating to the
different parties, giving national and
state platforms. In fact, it is pregnant
with intellectual pabulum that will
prove vastly interesting to the reader.
— Winona Herald.
A Valuable Reference Work.
The Year Book and Almanac issued
by The Globe Company, of St. Paul,
is the best work of the kind which has
come to our notice. Complete in every
particular. It combines history and
facts, statistics and general informa
tion, properly classified and Indexed In
a manner which permits of Instant
reference. The statistics axe piost com
plete and admirably arranged for In
telligent understanding. Sixty pages of
the 500 which this wonderful book con
tains are devoted to Minnesota, and the
political Information Is the most com
prehensive and valuable ever publish
ed in the state. We bespeak for thi3
work the consideration of every intelli
gent person in the state, and we can
say without hesitancy that It is valua
ble alike to Merchant, Farmer, Me
chanic, Sportsman or Politician.
The price of the book is 25 cents,
mailed anywhere, and, considering the
amount of information it contains, It
is worth fully three times that amount
— Austin Dally Herald.
Agulnaldo Is wise ataong his people, Ig
norant among Europeans. A man must be
judged by his environments, his compatriots,
his race. Agulnaldo is. not a Napoleon nor a
Washington; neither is-;; he a Tecumseh or a
Sitting Bull. He-Is Agiitnaldo. and his name
stands for no metaphor. He has the astute
ness of his race,.' the fearless bravery of the
savage warrior, the' sphinx-like Imperturbabil
ity of the Indian: the straightforwardness cf
childhood, and the ?lrinate sense of Justice
that characterizes alt^ aboriginal races. It
may be premature to "turn up a man's char
acter whilo his career is at the zenith.
Some trick of circumstance or expediency
may shift the kaleidoscope, for no man can
stand under the microscope of the historian
until the last page of evidence has been
turned In; but Agulnaldo, as he Is today,
commands the consideration and respect of
all who have taken the trouble to study his
character and watch the trend of events of
which he is the Ot-ntral figure. — Edwin Wild

Senator Morgan's Bandana.
The late Senator Thurman is still remem

carry. Senator Morgan, although his fame
rests upon a thousand things, carries a red
bandana also.* >.
As punctual as the rising sun, Senator
Morgan appears every day, emerging from
the Democratic cloakroom as the reading of
the Journal is concluded. In his band is a
red bandana, conspicuous because of its
rich and glowing color and its generous size.
The bandana, is visible afar off. It is like a
danger signal or an oriftamme of war. As
the senator walks down the aisle to his desk
In the front row, the bandana slowly dis
appears from view. It is carefully folded

A Day for Birds.
Bird lovers and Band of Mercy children
had reason to rejoice Friday when the house
pas.ced the bill authorizing the governor to
designate a day to be known as Arbor and
As T. S. Palmer points out in the Con
servative, the object of the day "Is to dif
fuse knowledge concerning our native birds
and to arouse a more general interest in bird
protection. As yuch it should appeal not
only to ornithologists, sportsmen and farm
ers, who have a practical Interest in the
preservation cf birds, but also the general
public, who wou'.d soon appreciate the loss
If the common songsters were exterminated."
"Bird day is more than a suggestion," con
tinues Mr. Palmer.-' "It has been already
adopted in at least two cities with marked
success, but as yet it is still an experiment.
Apparently the idea originated with Prof.
C. A. Babcoek, superintendent of schools iti
Oil City, Pa., who wrote to the department
of agriculture In 1894. of which J. Sterling
Morton was secretary, urging tha establish
ment of such a day, and stating that May 4
would be observed as Bird day in Oil City.
In reply the secretary of agriculture wrote,
among other thine?:
" 'Your proposition to establish a Bird
day on the same general plan as Arbor day
has my cordial approval.'
"It is a melancholy fact that among the
enemies of our birds two of the most de
structive and relentless are our women and
our boys. The love of feather ornamenta
tion so heartlessly persisted in by thousands ■
of women, and the mania for collecting eggs

and killing bird? so deeply rooted In our
boys, are legacies of barbarism Inherited from
our savage ancestry.
"The number of beautiful and useful birds
annually slaughtered for bonnet trimming 3
runs up into the hundreds of thousand?, and
threatens, if it has not already accomplished,
the extermination of s-ome of the rarer spe
cies. The insidious ess-hunting and pea
shooting proclivities of the small boy are
hardly less widespread and destructive.
"Birds are of Inestimable value to man
kind. Without their unremitting services our
gardens and fields would be laid waste by
"Of the success of this first experiment
there can be no question. The day was ob
served in the Oil City schools with a de
gree of enthusiasm which was good to see.
The amount of information about birds thai
was collected by the children was simply
amazing. Original compositions were read,
infoimal discussions were held, tak? by teach
ers were given and the birds in liteiatur*
were not forgotten or overlooked. • • •
The idea simply needs to be known to meet
with a warm welcome akin to that with
which we greet our first robin or song spar
row in the spring.
"La--t spring (1896) the movement was
started in lowa by Prof. C. li. Merrill, super
intendent of schools at Fort Madison, who
was apparently unaware of the experiment
In Pennsylvania. He set apart May 29. 1896,
as Bird day in the schools under his JurU-dlc
The department has also received inquiries
concerning Bird day from Connecticut, and

[ of agriculture to include Minnesota among
the avowed friends of birds.
