SUNDAY, AUG. 10, 1902.
Roosevelt has not had time to an
swer the questions propounded by
Bryan—and it is probable he will
make a poor out of it when he under
takes thte job.
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.
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
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.
The Sunday Globe Is the most
cosmopolitan newspaper in the Twin
Cities. 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.
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
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
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-
tlons of a skyrocket on the Fourth of
It Is really a great historical event—
the formal induction of the ruler of a
great empire. 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.
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 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.
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?

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.

People and things
Mr. Charles M. 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?
Farmers were never known to be suit
ed, yet, for if the crop is large, they
tell us it will bring a small price and
By Himsslf in Chicago Chronicle
April 15—Happiness I have found
out of two kinds —and both are but of
short duration. Both brands are as
elusive as an eel in melted butter.
Neither one remains as long as a book
agent when you are in a hurry.
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
It takes too much dough.
It is like a rag-time selection sung

thing in it beyond words to tell.
It is like a coon song sung by a coon

typewriter fail to convey one iota of

of bliss. 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.
