CANADA ASSERTING ITSELF. Canada owes a great deal to Sir Wil fred Laurier. The part he is now so successfully playing at Westminster is one of surpassing importance to the empire, as well as to the Dominion. He has stamped on the conference of colo nial premiers the deep impress of his own strong personality. He has taught the imperial secretary of England's col onies some true understanding of the real destiny of the northern section of the American continent. He has brought the insular mind of English statesmanship to realize that England is what she is because of the existence of the colonies; and that of all the col onies, Canada has within her bounda ries pre-eminently all the main re quirements to national greatness. It is a new character in which Can ada reveals herself through her pre mier to the British mind. We on this side of the boundary line have laughed often/it the attempted assumption by CanadJan public men of national signif icance on behalf of their country. Sir Wilfred Laurier has made Mr. Joseph Chamberlain understand that it is far from a laughing matter, and his fellow premiers have cast the sanction of their concurrence on his attitude. ' Those who read newspapers can al most locate the exact date of the pa tronizing admission made by the then existing government that the empire owed some substantial recognition to the colonies of the importance of their relations to the empire, and that it owed a duty toward them which it had never performed. Canada and the Australias, even during the lifetime of many a man not yet old, were good enough places to which to ship alike Irish rebels and British thugs. The measure of self-government bestowed on them was bestowed in the spirit in which concession is being made to Irish demands from time to time —to get rid, for the moment, if not for all time, of the bother of giving attention to things that were not sacredly of British im portance in themselves, and to do it at the minimum of cost. Today Canada is moving with some- thing of the strides which marked our own Western growth for a half century. The fertile fields of Western Canada lying waste for so long are being tilled by American farmers. The tide of im- I migration beats with tremendous force upon its shores. Railroads spring up and measure their lengths through the wilderness of yesterday. Canadian steamships will soon leave Canadian ports to carry to and from the ends of the earth the products of Canadian in- dustry and commerce. Leaving aside the insignia of national authority, Can ada has at her disposal today all the essentials necessary to becoming an important factor in the conduct of the affairs of the world. ' . It is to his ready recognition of these conditions that the Canadian premier owes the ascendancy of his present po sition in the councils of the British empire. His fellow-conferees defer to his superior sagacity, and to the supe rior importance of the great land he rep resents. The destiny of Canada is in her own hands, not in the hands of the pol iticians at Westminster. Nor will Lau rier surrender it into their hands. Whatever others may do; however oth ers among the colonial representatives may view the correlative obligations of empire and colony, he is so strong and immovable in his position that the em pire must show to the colony wherein the gain is, not to the empire but to the colony, in any proposal looking to clos er relationship between the two. Must Canadian trade remain in Brit ish leading strings? Sir Wilfred Lau rier has evidently answered this ques tion for his people to his own and their satisfaction. The answer may not suit British imperialists, nor Canadian To ries. But it looks to the promotion of Dominion interests first, and of impe rial interests afterward. It is not the manner of answering the question which Mr. Chamberlain might com mend; but it is that which must decide the commercial and industrial future of Canada, and the greatness or small ness of the part which it is destined to play in any future scheme of British imperial federation. "The tariff is the mother of trusts," said Havemeyer, of the sugar trust. The whole brood of monopolies sprang from the tariff incubator. END OF THE AMES REGIME. The events of the past week or ten days in Minneapolis are now certain to operate in bringing to a close one of the most distressing situations ever re vealed in the history of American mu nicipal government. The resignation of Mayor Ames is now actually in the hands of the municipal authorities. His brother, the chief of police, under whose administration so much of in famy was revealed, is out of office, and with him have disappeared, apparently forever, the worst of the band of cor ruptionists so long in control in Minne apolis. The whole municipal system estab lished under Mayor Ames has literally dissolved by force of its own helpless corruption, and those who survive Mayor Ames and his brother in the direction of municipal affairs have shown by their conduct within the past few days that city government in that commu nity will soon reach normal conditions. The exhibition which is thus given x>t the ability of the people of Minneapolis to bring to a prompt ending a condi tion involving both danger and disgrace to the municipality is worthy of the highest praise. If it were not attended, as it has been, by the practice of indi vidual politics, it would be still more commendable in itself. The end of the Ames family in the public service has been reached. The people of Minne apolis have had taught to them a bitter lesson. If they have taken this lesson really to heart there is no possibility that in the future they will be disposed to fly in the face of all political experi ence by selecting, as they did at their last city election, a class of men to control in the administration of their municipal affairs whom years of ex perience had shown to be utterly lost to all understanding of public morals or public responsibility.

It contains all the news, the best pages of specials and features, pictures of local and foreign celebri ties, and, in fact, everything that any one should know or be interested in. THE CORONATION. King Edward of England, in his re cent proclamation, declared that he re garded his forthcoming coronation as an event of sacred importance. How ever seriously the statement is to be taken, it is quite evident that the peo ple over whom Edward rules regards his coronation as a great events However much or little of historic truth there be in the statement that Thomas Jefferson tied his horse to the White house railings and proceeded on foot to take the oath of office, it is certain that the third president of the United States sought to give emphasis on the occasion of his installation to his conviction that pomp and public dis play over the event did not comport with his understanding of the require ments of such an occasion. Within the past one hundred years there has been something of a change of the point of view from which this people regard the inauguration of their chief magistrate. Then the occasion was celebrated throughout the country as an event of surpassing national im portance. Now it is attended each suc cessive occasion by more and more of the pomp and circumstance which until recent years we were wont to regard as more befitting monarchial govern ments. The formal inauguration of Eng land's king is not, we are told, a con stitutional requirement. The laws of succession operate to make the heir apparent the actual ruler. Why, then, all the spectacular show of yesterday in London? Human kind have always shown their readiness to yield to the influence of outward show. Kings and emperors have since their first appear ance in the world done what King Ed ward has done; and the multitude have stood open-mouthed to watch the scene. All the military and civic pageant visible on London's streets during the past twenty-four hours cuts no figure whatever with men who are concerned in the serious events of life and do not allow themselves to be diverted by the foolish glamor which attends them. The gaping mob, the industrious shop keepers and the retainers of the court, all have great concern in such display; but the world passes it by, and takes ultimately as little account of it as the American observer does of the gyra- THE ■-.rAUU, ULrTJBIS, , .BUWDAT,.

In that light we may all read with more or less interest the ac counts of the coronation scenes. But for the worth of the tawdry glitter and show of it all —that may be well left to the unthinking herd whom it is chiefly intended to affect. Harvest hands in some sections are gathering more in wages than sheaves from the field. TRIBUTE TO A MINNESOTAN. The people of Kansas are preparing to pay J. V. Brower, the distinguished Minnesota explorer, a graceful, unusual and deserved tribute on Tuesday by erecting a monument to him for his re discovery of the old Spanish village of Quivlra and the adjoining province of Harahey, first discovered by Coronado in 1541. For three and a half centuries the point at which Europeans made the discovery of the Missouri basin re mained an enigma. In 1896 and 1897 Mr. Brower made a careful study of the region around the junction of the Re publican and Smoky Hill rivers and found evidence of an indisputable char acter that the Spaniards settled at that point in 1541. An obelisk of polished granite, on an axled granite die, with native lime stone base, has been set up at Logan Grove, Kansas valley, three miles from Junction City. To the celebration 1,000 invitations have been issued by Capt. Robert Henderson, one of Kansas' lead ing men. Among those who will de liver addresses are Profs. Warren Up ham and N. H. Winchell, of Minnesota. "Keeping everlastingly at it" is the secret of success in business —that is, keeping everlastingly advertising. RELIC HUNTERS IN DISGRACE. Relic hunting, always due to some form of insanity, was never carried to more revolting lengths than when the body of Harry Tracy, the suicide out law, was hauled through the streets of Davenport, Wash. It is stated that when the remains were deposited in the morgue the crowd broke in and took away bit by bit every stitch of the dead man's clothing, even down to the blood-stained handkerchief, with which the desperado had sought to pre vent bleeding to death. The bloody strap which the bandit had drawn tightly around his leg to stanch the flow from the severed artery was also seized and cut into small pieces. Nor did the crazy Washingtonians stop here. With a pair of sheep shears they "snipped" locks of hair from the dead man's head until it was wholly bald in spots. It is difficult to divine what is run ning through the heads of men when they commit acts of vandalism of so horrible a character, and it is still more difficult to believe that officers in charge should permit of deeds so awful as to appall humanity. Bad as Harry Tracy was he did not deserve such treatment from feilow men who have had the advantages of twentieth cen tury civilization. Starvation is abroad in the coal re gions, it is reported; but the report does not state that the barons have begun to feel the pinch of hunger. MAY YOHE'S ABSURD CHASE. The most ludicrously disgusting epi sode of the year is the chase across sea, kingdom and republic of May Tohe jn her futile search for Capt. Bradlee' Strong, the young reprobate who a year ago, under the pledge that he loved her, accompanied Lord Hope's wife to Japan. "I do not want any body to think," said Miss Yohe, "that I am running after Mr. Strong, for I am not." Seeing that she had traveled across the Atlantic, gone to London and thence to Paris looking for the young man, nobody would have to think she was running after him. They would know it without going through a process so elaborate as thinking. And could anything be more absurd than Miss Yohe's act. Strong had not only robbed the young woman of what honor she had left, but he had pawned her jewels and run away from her, rumor strongly hints, with another woman. With all this evidence right before her eyes Miss Tohe makes a hurried trip of thousands of. miles to plead with a worthless scamp who isn't worth going across a forty-foot lot to see, unless for the purpose of giving him a hard kick. It would serve Strong right if he had to work in the cotton fields of Texas the rest of his days, and it is by no means sure that Miss Yohe should not have to do some sort of pro tracted penance for her acute attack of moral obliquity. What so rare as a day that goes by without furnishing an Oyster Bay date line for the newspapers? ■ —. CAPT. STREETER'S GREAT BAT TLE. Sitting in an old barn, stroking his red beard slowly and looking ruefully 1 out over the waters of Lake Michigan at Chicago, is Capt. George Wellington Streeter, regarded by many as one of the heroes of the century. For sixteen years Streeter has been fighting with powder and ball, in justice shops and in state and federal courts, for title to a portion of land owned along the lake shore which now amounts to 186 acres, but which at the outset was only a sandbar on which his steamboat Reu tan grounded over 400 feet from the shore line. Little by little the lake threw up earth until there was 186 acres of solid ground, where sixteen years ago there was nothing but water. Streeter stay ed on the sandbar and watched the growth, aiding it wherever and when ever he could, all the time laying claim to the accretion. His title to the prop erty was of course disputed and with growing vehemence as it gained in value. The "made" land is near the heart of the city on the North side and is today worth millions of dollars and scores of people assert ownership to it. Strangely through all these years of fierce warfare in courts, both civil and criminal, not until a few days ago was •* * a decision ever rendered upon the title to any part of the tract. Now Judge Chytraus has found tlgit Streeter has no good title to six acres of the realty, a portion, too, w|ich gave the old man much concern because upon that he had built his coiit house. Therefore it is that Capt. Streeter, baffled but. not l£;aten^has moved his court trappings to a barn at the foot of Chicago avenue and is preparing, sorrowfully, b,ut £he less gamely, for the next step in the great battle for "the district of Lake Michigan." The contest is at least the most pic turesque in the history of American le gal collisions. One more denial Is added to the rec ord of the report that other lines of railroad are seeking admission into this city. Whatever else the denial proves it shows at least that all the arrangements for that particular ad dition are not made—or the denial would not be necessary. Mr. Bryan cannot complain of the impartiality of the press reports con cerning him. It is not every man who can be proclaimed, all within forty eight hours, as at once announcing himself to be, and declining to be, a candidate for the presidency. The need of propping the industry of American ship-building with gov ernment bounties is most painfully felt when one reflects that every ship building yard on the Great Lakes is busy with contracts which will occupy every hour for a year to *ome.

The fact, however, does not not suggest that the animal is any less of an important factor in American society. Well, Mr. Heatwole, if you will make affidavit that you do not intend to run for congress in the Third district, we will consider the incident closed.

(Arab Proverb.) borne wise old Arab in the days of old looked out on the desert, wild and wide. A sea of sand like burnished gold, ihat never is moved by wind or tide: The sky above and the sand below Away, away to the bounds of space When Time's river has ceased its flow And broken ages have left their grace. Where the pyramids guard their kingly dead, And the sphinx looks out with stony eyes, And the wild beast sfeals with noiseless tread, And simoom rages and swoons and dies: He gazed at the passive plain and sky The same through the ages, the same today. But he looked through the years with a prophet's eye. "This, too, shall pass forever away." And if true of the desert so lone and drear, Where change has forgotten his name to write, Where Memnon mourns when the mowi is near, ' And (he centuries brood till they fade in flight; Yet truer by far of the changeful play, From comedy's smile to tragedy's strife where the actors change as day by day They take their parts in the play of life. The king rides in on a cloth of gold. And the vassal bows to the craven dust, And the tread of the warrior—fierce and bold, And the villain, filled with hate and lust; Riches and pomp are on the stage, The good and the bad have a part in the play. But—remember the words of the Arab sage, "This, too, shall pass forever away." I Joy comes on with a goodly tra,in. The roses of June, the sprays of heather Pale and alone comes ghastly pain, And the songs and the groans are blent together, Parcel and part of the lives we live, " From father to sqn since time began, Whether we hold or whether we give. It seems a part of the common plan, No creation can last for aye, Though long ,the acts and many the parts, - But come and go with the passing play. On the tragic stage we call our hearts Love and hate are closely allied, As earth's mutations of night and day: Close are the springs by both supplied, But, "This, too, shall pass forever away." Through weal and woe, through woe and weal, Our hearts are beating the steady knell. And the plastic clay by the flying wheel, Is molded by fate in its mystic spell, I sit and gaze on the tragic stage, From the glittering audience far apart, And in grief and silence the contests wage, That trample the galled and bleeding heart, And there in the silence I sit alone, Till the body is lost and the soul is king, And back to a grave it has safely flown, A grave is only a shallow thing, I see ag-ain that beautiful face, The queen of my heart forever and aye, And I will not believe such heavenly grace Can pass forever and ever away.

Schwab has been telling a long-suffering public what he thinks about things in general, and how to get a start in life. He says a college education is not a necessity for a man, and the worst thing that can happen to a young man is to start in life "with influence." We take it for granted from these wise remarks that Mr. Schwab did not have a col lege education and neither did he be gin life with Influence. It is singular that when a man makes money what he thinks upon every subject from metaphysics to door mats becomes of great importance. It he went to col lege, a collegiate training is of prime importance in his eyes, but if he did not go to coHege he fails to see where in it assists any young man to suc cess. If he ate with his knife and swept out the store in his early years, he talks learnedly about beginning at the bottom of the ladder and sniffs at culture. One of the pleasant things to look forward to is a time when the papers will have something else in them than "how I succeeded," by Schwab, or a description of the par ticular pump at which Tracy stopped to wash his face, or what May Yohe intends to do next. Then, indeed, will the millenium have arrived. Had Gems in Great Number. An interesting item from London tells of the reception given for the visiting Indian princes who came to the belated coronation. It is reported that one of the most expensively at tired potentates was the Maharajah of Kolapore, who wore a necklace of 500 pearls; next to him came the Ma harajah Scindia of Gwailor, who went the ruler of Kolapore one better in the matter of jewels and was so covered with gems that he was unable to sit down. The Maharajah of Tagore came under the wire a close second with a turban that was so weighted down with large rubies that his ma harajaship went home with a head ache before the afternoon was half over. But that is not all. The neck lace of the Gaekwar of Baroda made, says the report, the European prin cesses feel hopeless. Now it would not be pleasant to have the world at large know that we were unaware what a gaekwar is, but such is the cold fact, and the dictionary giving no clue we are obliged to fall back upon a very slight knowledge of logic and argue from cause to effect. Even here one hesitates, as it is perhaps only in this country that men do not wear necklaces, and to say that un doubtedly a gaekwar is a woman, be cause it wore a necklace, might result in confusion. We have a strong sus picion, however, that gaekwar is fem inine for marharajah. The point of the report is that at the reception in question these personages left their trunks empty and wore the best they Farmers' Anxious Season. This is the time of year when all Westerners live in the shadow ot hope or fear about crops. They rise in the morning trembling with fear that the weather man may predict rain, and we have had so much rain that the crops will be "rusted." When lo! a farmer from somewhere comes out with the announcement that unless we have rain within twenty-four hours, the crop will be ruined. Then every one begins to pray for rain, litanies are said for rain, and the oldest in habitant may be found searching the skies at 5 a. m. for signs of a cloud. Suddenly it starts in to pour • and keeping it up for three days we learn with consterntion that unless it stops there will be no crop at all! Prayers for surcease from rain are then sent up and answered with suc]fl celerity that the farmers are again in trouble. But what's the use of worrying?

In the first place there is the happi ness that comes when you first order up the suds. As the cool, refreshing stuff slides down your parched throat a sudden warmth seems to pervade your whole being and a happiness comes over you. I canot describe it. You cannot describe it. But it gets there just the same. This happiness I identify with that of a pig wallowing in a fine, large, well-churn ed mud puddle. It is so comfortable. It is so delightfully delicious. It is just real nice, so there now! But there is the great still happi ness that comes to you after you are all in. Then is that unspeakable joy. After you have fallen under the table, the lights are dim and the other com panions have taken the big sneak. What more in all this world is there to wish for? What greater, deeper joy can there be in all the world than to lie under the table in the sawdust, your only companions the affectionate little flies, and the only noise the sound of your snoring? The happiness is beyond anything known to science and to the volupt uary. It throws all other joy away back on the last seat under the bal cony. It makes the reddest bliss look pale and wan. It looms up beside the happiness of other events like a dia mond alongside a doughnut. It looks like real country cream beside the blue milk of a Chicago dairy. Such joy as that comes not to the many. It takes too much dough. It is like a rag-time selection sung by a vaudeville artist. There is some thing in it beyond words to tell. It is like a coon song sung by a coon song artist of the most approved type. But the words pounded out on a typewriter fail to convey one iota of A HOME IN WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA.

Nearly everyone in the city has had something happen to him, and those who have not yet had any ex citing experiences suffer from hal lucinations and presentiments of ap proaching trouble. A woman was ar rested the other night who was sup posed to be insane because she feared that her house was to be burned by the neighbors. Such a fear at such a time in Minneapolis Is surely a sign of unusual sanity and the cruelty of depriving the poor woman of her lib erty on such a pretext adds one more to a long line of injustices. The fact that nothing had happened to her, and that her house had not been set on fire, naturally made her suspicious, particularly as her husband had not been arrested for any crime. It is to be hoped that One of the acting mayors will see that the poor woman is re leased. The pleasantest bit of news of the past week was" the report that Capt.

It is such a kind of happiness as will come to me some day when I marry the brewer's daughter. Ah, hasten the day when I shall stand before the J. P. and say "You bet your sweet life," when he asks me if I take her for better or for worse. She is the one altogether lovely. She is the daughter of the man with beer vats. When she shall tread the path of life side by side with me then will this unspeakable bliss be mine most of the time. There are so many fools in the world. If there were more men of sense the brewer's daughter would be surrounded by a mob all the time and her offers of matrimony would out number the applications for a govern ment position. But I wait in my loneliness for the coming of the brewer's daughter. Some day she will dawn upon me and all my troubles will be a thing of the past. But, Oh, how can I wait? To be a young man, alone and with a terrible thirst is something frightful. I carry about with me a terrible weight. How I wish I had a load. Oh, how can I wait? Oh, darn, darn, i&m. Oh, fudge! Darn the whole world. Darn every thing living and all things dead! Darn Mark Hanna! Darn some of Chicago's constables! Darn Carrie Nation and all those who smash saloons and spill good booze! Darn the heat and darn the cold! Darn the summertime and the win ter and ditto the spring and fall. Darn the city and darn the country. Darn the evening and darn the morn ing thereof, and darn the night and the noon and the dawn and the twi light!. Darn everything, yea, darn socks! Oh, I am so tired. Can't you see how frightfully tired I am? Please won't some kind person come along and hit me with a brick?
