Telephone, Mnin 1005. SUNDAY, JULY 6, 1902. Ambassador Ohoate's effort to stop a gathering of loyal Americana from making'speeches and having a good time on the Fourth of July was an .ig nominious failure, as it deserved to be. His excessive flunkeyism met a merited rebuke. FIGHTING CONGRESSMEN GO. Congress having adjourned, "Wash ington is on a peace b^sis again, and street-car conductors, hackmen and others who in their daily routine have had to rub up .igain.st national legis lators are coming out of their holes and preparing to enjoy a summer of r.-stfulness and security. Tillman, Mc- Laorln ana Money have gone back to ihfir bees and cows, Bailey to his oil wolls and Beveridge to his law books and the capital city militia has stacked arms, folded its tt-nt and slipped away to a watering place. In the meantime, the dear people are wondering what will happen on the north bank of the Potomac next Sep tember when these and other violent tempetvd law framers return to their places in the senate and house of rep resentatives. These fellows with big lists and boiling passions have been dealt with so gently in the past that it seems certain that when they get back to their seats, corn-fed and "sassy," they will have the same old desire to carve their monograms on menials or knock each other's noses some degrees out of plumb. The question, however, of this peren nial bellisrerency is much more serious than it looks from a well or a tower. Men who cannot behave themselves are usually placed under some sort of restraint if they are ordinary mortals I possessed of only such privileges as are granted in.iivilu.ils ,in<7er the law:? and ordinances. Why not treat con gressmen in the same impartial way f A United States senator who has an overweening desire to change the con tour of another's face merits no bet ter fate than to be placed under bonds to keep the peace. Tnis wouldn't, it i» true, keep some senators from Trying. in season and out, to uppercut those whose views .should run counter to their own, but for these some special plan might be devised. For instance, Ben Tillman might be brought into the changer each morning by a keeper who had flrnt securely handcuffed him. Around the desk there might be built a kind of c;t.?e of sufficient dimensions to give him a chance for comfortable movement and at the same lime pre vent bis thrusting an arm through the bars and taking off a handful of the hirsute adornment of an oppcoent. It Is apparent, at any rate, that the national legislative bodies must, to preserve their own dignity, make more stringent rules for the government .of their members or else each set off a twenty-four foot ring and see to it that every "scrapper" gets fair show. Some visiting- Venezuelans in this country thought there was a large sized revolution in progress Friday and expected to read in the papers next morning that the capital had fallen into the hands of the rebels. SUNSHINE FOR HOUSEMAIDS. The young women who preside over the steaks, salads an«l washtubs are right at the verge of a new 'ife if we are to believe a itory which has been sent to the remainder of the world from Chicago, the point of origin of a great many good yarns but of only a few real reforms. Chicago housewives have not hitherto been noted for their tenderness toward their female help, denominated variously as hired girls, servants and domestics. In fact, in most "instances the Windy City cook, laundress and cleaner of the family silver has usually had to sleep in the garret and sometimes in the barn or at the home of her parents six miles away. Hut all this is over now. it appears, and the Chicago hired girls are going to see much sunshine and poke fur. at the young women who have to earn their living clerking in stores or acting as cashiers in restaurants. To be definite sixty-eight Chicago matrons have Tret in solemn conclave and re solved that servant girls shall be ele vated, at least to a considerable de gree. If the young persons hire to make bread and dust out the corners actually do their work they are to be given a diploma after a year of serv ice in the home of any member o£ the association. Moreover, they are to be known in future as housemaids and if they remain two years in one place and serve acceptably they are to be awarded a second diploma and also a medal, which, it is stated, may be worn on a ribbon for display at balls and parties. Then, to heap up the kindness and perhaps to atone for the neglect of the past, graded diplomas are to be given and the hint is thrown out that there will be post-graduate courses in culinary and domestic art. This Is all very cheering to the young women who knead the dough (indeed they do) and wrestle with pots and pans, and The Globe sincerely hopes they will get several of the things that are coming to them. They deserve, as a rule, much more than they receive. Let the new association proceed to business without further ado. A DANGEROUS IDEA. If there were any doubt left as to the president's readiness to utilize occa sions wholly disconnected from poli tics for the delivery of stump speeches on behalf of his administration, such as characterized his appearance as an orator on Memorial day, his most re cent address at the Harvard alumni dinner would remove any such doubt completely. The text of that address was the devotion to high ideals in pub lic conduct of three of his chief polit ical aids, Secretary Root, Gov. Taft and Gen. Wood. These three men, of course, occupy, or have occupied, three of the most distinguished positions in the national service to which it was possible to appoint them. The encomiums heaped upon them by President Roosevelt would seem to indicate that American citizens should bow down in adoration of these gentlemen for the patriotism and self-denial which they have mani fested in the acceptance of their sev eral positions and in the ordinary dis charge of the duties of such position. The one point which seems to appeal with most convincing force to the president as demonstrating the supe rior spiritual qualities of Root and the others appears to be the fact that there is no especially princely salary attached to the offices to which these men were appointed. Gen. Wood, he points _ out, had $60,000,000 pas 3 through his hands; yet he came out of office having to draw on his slender capital "in order that-he might come out even when he left the island." Root, he tells the world, gave up the lucra tive position of being leader of the New York bar to assume the office of secretary of war; while Taft is quoted by the president apparently as making a very plain bid for appointment to the office of justice of the supreme court. Referring to him, the words of Roosevelt's Harvard dinner address, are as follows: He said to me: 'Mr. President, it has always been my dream to be in the su preme court, but if you should offer me a justiceship now, and at the same time congress should take oft entirely my sal ary as governor. T should go straight back to the Philippines, nevertheless, for those people need me and expect me back, and believe I won't desert then*.' " The burden of the president's address is, in brief, that all these men did an exceptionally -virtuous and high-mind ed thing in disregarding the possible pecuniary advantages that might ac crue to them had they not consented to serve in public office. This is a new doctrine. It is a very serious doctrine for the president of the United States to assume the sponsorship of. It im plies the unquestioned and unques tionable acceptance of the all too prev alent idea that there is not on earth a thing that a man should set his heart upon save the accession of mon eyed wealth. Evidently the honor which was bestowed upon these sev eral men in being allowed to serve their country in civil positions of the highest possible honor is not to be considered in estimating the sacrifices with which they are to be i-ccredited. This, as we say, is a very serious dog ma to find indorsement by the presi dent of the United States as it does. These men, as a matter of fact, have done no more, but really infinitely less, than hundreds of thousands, nay, mill ions of men, who have served their country before them. There is not one of them, unless rt be Gen. Wood, who is entitled to a tithe of the honor that is due to the commonest private soldier who enlisted in the ranks of the Union in the recent Civil war, or even the humblest volunteer who en listed to fight the battles of th* Cuban people. It will be a sad day for this THE ST. FAUtr UUJOS, SUNDAY, JULY 6, 1902. republic when men who " serve their i country are to be extolled only or ehlefly by reason , of the N pecuniary sacrifices which they have made in doing so. That sentiment given ex pression to by President Roosavelt may tend to promote the, fortunes of his administration. It certainly will not aid in securing currency for any particularly exalted, estimate of him or of his understanding of what con stitutes true Amei-ican patriotism. SEA SERPENT OF 1902 ABROAD. Horrible news comes in from th 3 pine forests of Wisconsin. The sea serpent has been seen over there. What matters it that he is in a fresh water lake leagues away from the sea? He's a sea serpent all the same to those who see him and quite as much, so to those who imagine they sea him. Leo Brown and Alexander McChes ney, unlike Washington only in that they can tell a lie but won't, keen eyed youths of the rural environs of Big Moon lake, are ready to make afHdavits singly or in-blocks of five that they saw this amphibious animal a few days ago. They also give •'veri similitude to an otherwise bald and unconvincing narrative" by going into harrowing details, so to speak. They assert that his sea serpentship opened and closed his jaws like a crocodile and that he poked about six feet of his neck and body out of the water just to show that if there was any "rub bering" to do off shore he didn't have to call in the neighbors. He did not show any desire to come ashore and milk the Badger cows or "hot foot" af ter the trusts, but just disported him self, around in a gentlemany though distant sort of way. ■ Those who are disposed to throw cohi, fresh water on the story of these boys are warned that they do not drink any of the stuff that made Milwaukee famous and are not in politics. They ne^er saw a sea serpent before and do not want to see another, but "stand pat" on their story in every detail. Will some physician please inform The Globe what effect bonny clabber has on the eyes of those who drink it? SUMMER GIRL IS STRENUOUS. Those young men who have gone to the summer resorts for a nice quiet dolce far niente ninety days or so are receiving the big jar of their lives. They love the girls, particularly the girls they meet at the sea shore, and hither to they have been eagerly willing to do . the bidding of the sweet creatures, but this year things are shockingly dif ferent from other years. The young woman of 1902 isn't like her sister of IS9B, a tender, pale person who spent her time reading, swinging in a ham mock and dressing for dinner. This year's girl is a brawny, rosy-cheeked, pretty picture of health who knocks on one's door at 5 o'clock in the morn ing and demands that you go for two hours of play on the golf or tennis links before breakfast. Then she In sists that yon take her rowing for three hours, she taking her turn at the oars. In the afternoon she de mands your company in a climb over any mountains or high hills that may be handy and winds up with an hour of rapid golf at 5 o'clock. This strong, energetic girl is always doing things from morning till night and doing more things every day she lives. And how she lives every mo ment of the time! She travels at a nerve-racking pace and yet her nerves are under such control that she doesn't know she has them. The girl of 1902 is the right thing in the right place. Nobody need take the time to wish her long life, for she is putting herself out of the reach of the undertakers and fitting herself to be come the mother of brainy, brawny men. "THE RIGHT OF PRIVACY." Girls of America who have had the good fortune to be born pretty or to have become pretty as they grew ur have just had thrust before them a problem of first importance. "Th| right of privacy" has been jarred off the legal boards by the court of ap peals of New York, and hereafter that young woman who wants to keep her picture off flour bags, beer barrels and cigarettes will have to think of some other way than "the right of privacy" to attain her ends. If there is such a thing as "the right of privacy," judges are stumbling and disagreeing over it at such a rate that it is likely to be a mooted question for many years. Some twelve months ago a Rochestei (N. V.) young woman, aggrieved over her picture's use on certain advertise ments, sought such redress as tlu courts could grant her, making the plea that a woman's beauty waa her inviolate property and not public ma terial for advertisers. New York's su preme court found that "the right of privacy" had been violated and grant ed an injunction. This decision ha.3 just has been reversed by the court of appeals, which holds as follows: An examination of the authorities leads us to the conclusion that the so-called right of privacy has not as yet found an abiding place in our jurisprudence, and as we view it, the doctrine cannot now be incorporated without doing violence to settled principles of law by which the profession and the public have long been guided. Taking a broad view of the matte? the court reasoned that if any pc: •> could keep his picture out of a news paper or off a flour bag he could also enjoin any publisher from putting his name in his paper or prevent any other person from writing or speaking about him. Of course the Rochester younp woman and all others who feel they have been wronged can drop the plea of "right of privacy" and bring a sui; for libel and secure such damages a; have been suffered. It has been suggested that a special law be enacted to cover the misuse of photographs by advertisers. A statute could easily be framed which would precisely meet the case. Did any Republican spellbinder In this vicinity recite to an admiring au dience, or the Fourth of July, the story of the immortal struggle of the fore fathers for independence and liberty, and the right to establish a govern ment deriving its Just powers from the consent of the governed, and the right to representation when taxed? In all that speech of Roosevelt's on Independence day he never intimated to the Filipinos that they might ulti- mately have liberty and independence. And he knows,* and ejfery man of in telligence knovis, thai the imperialist Republicans do* not intend th,at they ever shall have independence. Roose velt has murdeued the, hope of the Fil ipinos that they might one day have a flag of their awn an,d liberty such as the American c|>lonleH won from Eng land. Secretary RooTavaifed himself of an other opportunity to put a slight upon Gen. Miles, dottles* with the advice and consent of Roosevelt. Too cow ardly to execute their desire to dis grace the fighting head of the army, these two have adopted the policy of nagging him into retirement. The whole country hopes they will fail. Now the states have taken up the Sampson-Schley controversy and the last of it may never be heard. Louisi ana leads off with making it a penal offense to use in the public schools of the state a history which gives Sampson credit for the victory over Cervera at Santiago. It is k difficult matter to conjure up sympathy for a full grown man who suffers injury from exploding fire works of his own ignition. Experience is a painful teacher, but there are cer tain people who will learn at no other school. Wanted—The address of any good Republican in St. Paul who read the Declaration of Independence on Friday, or heard any one else read it, and who approves the document. Some 600 Filipinos were pardoned out of jails and other prisons for the offense of aspiring to make their coun try free and independent—pardoned on the Fourth of July! There may be a repetition of the Abel-Cain tragedy in Minneapolis if the brothers Ames should both be at liberty at the same time. The Fourth of July did not attract much attention in Minneapolis, for they have been having fireworks for several weeks. "We said Cuba should become a free republic and we kept our word," said Roosevelt. Why not say the same thing to the Filipinos? Just by way of variety, the boys at Evanston, Wyoming, played snowball on the glorious Fourth. The Fourth of July ran a close sec ond to Mont Pelee. j: Wangled in a j ;i Mergenthaler There is only one song for the dear girls this summer, "Wearing of the Green." Still one of the most numerous things in this horseless age is horses. New Jersey at least is making no loud outcry against the trusts. Its taxes from the big corporations claim ing the state as their home were $2, --000,000 the past year. It rains so frequently in Chicago that the newspapers are printing the base ball games under the head of aquatics. The trusts have cut their summer watermelon. We paid Spain $20,000,000 for the Philippines. The Philippines have cost us $500,000,000. Startling figures! Anyhow, nobody can ever say that an American P^ourth of July "passed off quietly." Darius F. Reese by this time regards Mr. Pidgeon, of Wright county, as something of a Minnesota flyer. Even the Fifty-seventh congress sometimes did a wise thing. It ad journed. Well, let it pass. Beveridge is no fighter. A Waukegan (Wis.) man has re turned $2 he stole in 1877. What a phlegmatic conscience! And what would he have done if the amount had been $2,000. Hamlin Garland isn't a bit bashful. He names Edward Eggleston, Joseph Kirkland, Octave Thanet, E. W. Howe and Hamlin Garland as the great writers of the Middle West. The Fifty-seventh congress appro priated $800,000,000 and everything else it could lay its hands on. What a prospect for Lily Langrtry. She is now in line to become a grand mother. Alfred Austin's poetry suggests that he would shine as the writer of law briefs. + We hasten to announce in advance of the Faribault Pilot that there are two Sams on the Republican ticket and several better ones in the Bible. The high bridge seems easy. Put a spring board on It and let the boys somersault from it to a bath. Probably the fellow who drank two quarts of brandy a day for two days and then died won't have to be em balmed. And, by the way, did you ever notice that the homeliest woman usually has the prettiest hair? There must be something soothingly soft about New York brick and stone. A man fell five stories there and is on the road to recovery. New York girls are wearing mono grams on their stockings. Nobody ought to see them there, but somehow they do. It has just been decided that the strange fish brought to the United States from Bermuda is the channo muraena vitata. Well, let it go at that. So long as ft Is not related to our Miss Mary Mac Lane we have no ground for protest. Some men only have time to sit around and increase bank stock. How sad!

Men who fight with the gloves should remember that occasionally the knockout punch is made by the bar tender. Minnesota Republicans want reci procity, with Cuba, but only the kind that will be pleasing to the beet sugar barons. New York's fashionable set, having eaten with a simian, may fairly be said to have made a monkey of itself. People and o'kings The glorious Fourth, the day that we celebrate our independence and the subjection of the benevolently assimi lated Filipinos, is now over, with the proper number of eyes blown out and fingers burned off, and with the small boy sleeping it off animated by the de lightful consciousness that he has made the largest number of people available as miserable as possible. The cannon crackers were louder than ever before, and the streets simply swarmed with infant fiends who could not have told what it was about or of whom we were celebrating our independence. Considering our present attitude of warm friendship with out ancient en emy, and grief that we could not dis play our diamonds at the dear king's coronation, every firecracker was an insult.and mony of the celebrators, had they realized the significance of the day, would have refrained from any demonstration. From different motives and entirely with an eye to self-pres ervation, all mothers of future presi dents regretted that the English were not successful a hundred years ago. It is understood that the Filipinos were allowed to celebrate with blank car tridges. It is reported from Chicago, that center of literary effort, that a certain Miss Minetta Theodore Taylor has been elected president of an associa tion of Western authors, and it is fur ther reported that Miss Taylor can read no less than seventeen languages. The fact that we have never heard of Miss Taylor is nothing against her, and no doubt she is well qualified, by a res idence in Chicago, to be the president of Western authors. Her ability to speak the tongue of nearly every street in the Windy City alone makes her eligible for any position of honor. But Where's Ham Garland? For why is this sV.ght put upon Ham? He is the real thing in Western authors, and not only entitled to the presidency, but to every office in the association, as being the only man who can read his own books through. There has been recently in Chicago a unique gathering of elocutionists in the manner of a convention, in which mat ters pertaining to the trade were dis cussed and elocuted. We can think of nothing pleasanter for the world at large than a gathering of elocutionists reciting to each other, and the person who conceived and carried out the idea was not only possessed of an unusual amount of gray matter, but was a hu manitarian of a pronounced type. It should be made an annual affair, or at the call of any member who feels com ing over him the desire to recite. Some great mind in the gathering proposed that it should be made a criminal of fense for a father or mother, not elocu tionists, to teach a child to speak a piece. It is certain from this that there are some master minds among the members, and any sum of money could be raised speedily to assist in an effort at legislation tB the end mentioned. The fact that morally it is a crime now to teach a child to speak a piece, may aid lawmakers in making it legally a misdemeanor. • * • Senor Buencamino, who is something 1 somewhere in our new possessions, has had his feelings hurt. Having been reconstructed and made over on the American plan, he naturally knows that when he has a grievance it is his prerogative as a free-made American citizen to go to Washington and make a howl. So to Washington he' hied himself and howled. His complaint was that the president, in hi 3 address at Harvard, had much to say about Wood and Taft and Root, but nary a word did he utter about Buencamino. This oversight will have to be remedied and it is rumored that Mr. Roosevelt is contemplating making a speech which shall concern only one Buen camino, in which Ills virtues and at tainments shall be set forth in a prop er manner. It is no trouble for the president to make a speech, and should the audience be very select he is al most certain of one appreciative list ener. • There is a cross man who rides very frequently on the Selby avenue line, and while he finds fault with every motion made by the car or con ductor, the rest of the passengers do not. find fault with him, as he pro vides about the only free entertain ment ■ offered by the street railway company.

E. Hasxw, Mtr. , SEVENTH AND ROBERT. $517,700 consisted of specie ajpd $1,671, --400 of legal tenders. The statement does not agree in this respect with the estirhates which were based upon the traceable movements of money during the week. Indeed a disagreement wai looked for because the estimates In cluded only the changes for the bank week up to Thursday morning, while the official statement embraced thci movement on that day. The loans were increased $17,011,400. This was large ly due to the fact that the additional capital and surplus of the National City bank, which was paid in casb during the week, was promptly loaned by the bank, thus augmenting the item of loans and more or less affecting the average of loans reported by all the banks. The deposits were increased by $2, --818,100. This amount is less by $12. --004,200 than the sum called for by the increase of loans, less the decrease of cash, and the statement, therefore, is technically out of proof. The discrep ancy was chiefly caused by the above noted loans of the National City bank of the cash paid in for the new stock, which cash was, of course, not includ ed in the deposit line. The reserve re quired was increased by $704,">25, which sum added to the $2,189,100 loss of cash, above noted, makes $2,593,625 as the decrease in surplus reserve which item now stands at $10,084,725; at the corresponding date last year it was $5,211,525. The daily average of bank clearings during the five days of the bank was $275,000,000 against a daily average of $204,000,000 in the previous week. The increase was largely due to the July disbursements and also to the City bank's operations In connection with its increase in capital above re ferred to. The surplus reserve of the banks, though reduced, appears to be ample for all requirements even though there should be a further re duction in the current week as the result of gold because Paris Is now in creasing its stock of gold in expecta tion of the conversion of about $48, ---000,000 of 3% per cent into 3 per cent rentes. The demand for gold at Paris was last week reflected in the decline in exchange at Paris on London to 25« francs 15% centimes, elsewhere noted in this issue, and it is probable that Paris will this week draw gold from New York; withdrawals hence for shipment will, however, .be partly off set by receipts of Klondike gold through assay office checks. Compar ing the changes in loans by the prin cipal banks, it appears that six in stitutions gained $15,400,000, of which the City alone had slo,soo,ooo. * The net loss in specie by eight banks was $1,800000. The City shows a decrease of $3,200,000. the First National $3. --600,000 and the Western $4,000,000. The largest gaina were by three banks, which showed a total of $7,500,000. m .
