However, it wu hourst of the chief executive to say no. ami now if he will as cantlidly mlmit that the name condition prevailing elsewhere are due t'j the siime cause we shall entertain a better opinion of him than formerly.

The Missouri river improvement com mission is coming to St. Joseph toexnui ine the work that hns been done here Bnd to determine the present condition of the encroachments of the river. Many earnest efforts hare been made of late to attract the attention of the govern ment to St. Joseph. There is no fuult to be found with the work that the gov ernment has accomplished at this point, but it has slopped short of complete effectiveness. The river is now cutting into the western limits of the southern part of the city nnd one of the public school buildings is endangered. It is to be hoped tbat the commission will lied it expedient to make n report that will secure for this point funds suOicieat to avert the npptehended-difi&iter until an appropriation of sufficient importance Ban be secured to make perfect the pro tection. There is as question that the work here is badly ueeded. St. Joseph Herald. Our Affair Witk Turkey. Another and still more urgent note from Secretary Hay to the sultau of Turkey is evidence that our government has no intention of backing out of its position in regard to enforcing payment of that $90,000 claim. There is a strong popular sentiment behind the govern ment in this matter. Strangely enough from bucIi peaceful and peace-loving sources as the church, the clergy and the missionaries has come the loudest clamor for instant and summary pro ceedings agaicst the monstrous Turk. "Send warships!" is the cry which has been shouted into the president's ears for a month past. There is little need to inquire why the Christian world has no great love for Abdul Hamid or any of his tribe. The Armenian massacres are still too fresh end terrible in the public mind. Hut there are other reasons why the Turkish sultan should be a friendless monarch. Prom his position as the bone of con tention between the great powers the sultan is indulged, and has been for years, in small meannesses and perlides tbat would not be tolerated in an inde pendent nud responsible ruler. The Turk has therefore become the violator of oaths, a diplomatic coward doiag by stealth what he could not accomplish by any honorable means. From being ever lastingly watched by jealous rivals the sublime porta has become sublime only in petty knavery, and the Turkish ruler has felt safe from reprisals so long he the nations keep guard of each other. Thus the "sick man of the East," the rotten and groveling government of the sultan, has lost the respect of mankind and offers himself to all comers as the deserving candidote for humiliation and diegrace. Xevertheleos it is not likely that the United States w ill go to war with Tur key or any other country for a paltiy ?W0,000. The improbability of uuch a thing is no doubt largely responsible for Abdul Hamid's failure to respond quickly and satisfactorily lo Secretary Hay's demands. And yet great nations haye gone to war for as trivial causes as the oue herein involved. Government Aid for Roads. Representative Grahnra, in the house of representatives, and Senator Penrose, in the senate, have introduced bills ap propriating $3,000,000 tor the building of public roads in the several states of the United States, the appropriation to be applied to each state in proportion to the mileage of roads within the state, to be used exclusively for the building of permanent roads under the direction of the department of agriculture. These bills are fathered by the League of American Wheelmen, which has done more to forward the interests of bicycle riders than all the other organizations put together. It is not likely that the money will be appropriated at this ses sion of congress, but the leaven will work, nnd if the national government will aid the states in this matter we may in a few years see the mud paths which now pass for roads become magmticenl highways such bb every European coun try possesses.

The incisure i- aimed at the legislation by which Germanv has proposal to pi. ice duties on certain American meat products which wouliLvirtually be prohibitory .The Auik'rican live stock interests havo in spired tho bill, ami if the German Gov eminent carries out the Agrarian pro gram of shuttim; out American ineatfi there can be no doubt that this measure or Homcthiii on tho same lines will bo passed by congress As the hums uro Ktamls at present it is a warning to the interests in the German Empire which have been making war on American imiMirts. The bill reads that "whenever tho President of the United Suites shall be informed that the government of the German Empire has passed, a law imiosing prohibitory duties on American meat products which may bo imported into that country from the United States ho shall issue a proclama lion using u time when all articles pro duced or manufactured in tho German Empire, when entered for consumption at the ports of tho United States, shall pay a duty of 10 per cent in excess of tho duties imposed thereon prior to tho pas sago of this act; and all such product) and manufactures, when so entered for consumption, after said timutlxed bv tho President, shall pay such increased duties." As this session is close to its tod tho bill will go over to the winter meet ing of congress, but tho fact of its intro duction may render its passage unnoces- parv. For more than twenty years the Ger man Agrarians have been making war upon American products of one sort and another, chiefly on meats. During part of the 80s American pork, hams, lard and like products were virtually excluded from tho German Empire by unjust laws passed in the interest of a small class, against the protests of the masses of the German people. At the present time the legislation aganst the United States which is threatened is opposed hy the consumers and is antagonized by the German Government, but tho Agrarians who are pushing it believe they can enact it. The bill which has just been intro duced In the House of Representatives at Washington will show them theconsc quences of such legislation. The necessity for the passage of tho Bailey bill will le exceedingly disagreeable to tho United States, but if the threatened anti-American legislation goes through tho German Parliment, this bill will be suro to re ceive a large majority in House and Sen ate. Tho bill in not likely to be reported at the present session, but if, when con gress meets next December, tho Agra rians' hostility to American imports gets into tho German statutes this measure will promptly le put through House and Senate.

Gen. Corbiu reviews the old condition aud citeH the existence then of scores o low groggeries in Washington and else wnere, in ine neigniiorliooil or army ptifth, in support of his position. II also refers to tho export opinion an to sick rate, extent of drunkenness in this country nnd at insular points, and says "lu tho face of the men who are in di rect contact with the system, aud of ex pert investigation, it is safe to presume that the prohibition of the sale of beer in the post exchange means an increase of whiskey drinking and drunkenness, aud the consequent uecessily fur medi cat treatment, an increase of the horrors of delirium tremens and an increased number of courts-martial and punish ment, ami of desertions, to the scandal of the service, no less than a decrease o discipline, health aud morals and the consequent diminution of contentment pelf esteem and self-reliance on the part of enlisted men, to say nothing of its etiects upon surrounding communities ! or hygienic reasons, Gen. Corbiu says, the war department has not en cournged the establishment of canteens for the selling of beer in Cuba, althougli the advisability of this course is doubted as the men run in debt nt the shops and cafes, and drink vile liquors, which often throw them into convulsions. In the Philippine islands, Gen. Corbin says that every etTort is mode to keep the soldiers from drinking, but they have no dilliculty in securing from the natives a vile stuff called "anisado" or "vino," the effect of which is to drive men to a crazed condition that, as a pathological prob lem,has occasioned much concern among army medical people. To meet this condition, a canteen was established at Manila for the sale of beer, aud the beneficial effects there from were almost instantaneous. The wine shops were driven out of business, and the vino question, so far as our sold ters wereconcerned.died a natural death In conclusion, Gen. Corbiu says that the canteen system is being carefully watched and perfected, and that the in terests of the service require if should not be disturbed. He says those most interested regard it as a success as a temperance measure, and he adds: "The woudcr of it all is that the pro fessional temperance reformers are, in this respect, allied with the aggressive saloon interests in their efforts to secure egislation to destroy it."

Hut Missouri rows bijr K" appUs, big white apples, big wine color ed apples and big strips! apples as well as the big Ben Davia varietv. The tnt s in thousands of apple orchards bloomed abuudantlx this spring, and there is a line prospect for the biggest crop in three- ear. Growers are especially fortunate in having sent so tine an exhibition to Pari-. In giving to Missouri this valuable ad vertiseiuent the services of Secretary U. A. Goodman of the Horticultural Society cm not be ostimitiHl too highly. The work involved iu collecting, selitting. storing, packing and shipping the fruit wns unite ardous. The attention which Misouri apples an now attracting at Paris will prove of great advantage when the exporting xeasons oHns next fall Visitors to the fair from England and countries on the Continent, as well as the Parisians themselves.will prefer, uu doubtly, thechoicp liHiking.liiiely-lhnor ed Missouri apples of which those on ex hibition ato samples. The prime quality of Missouri apples should place them on as high a level in the markets of the world as Danish butter now holds in lmdon or as Missouri mules have gain ed in South Africa. A full crop or oven ono half crop of apples in this state means the production of an enormous supply. Frenchmen and all other lovers of fruit who nro in trodueed to tho big red apples at tho Paris exposition sbould bo impressed. not only with the good quality of Miv souri fruit, but also with tho fact that orchardists in this state will bo able to supply largo quanitics at reasonable prices.

Important political issues are daily growiog more import ant. An intelb gem understanding of the policy of a nation or a great political party is some thing to be desired, aud it ie the duty of every citizen to thoroughly inform himself upon the lending topics of the day. The Semi-Weekly Republic is the greatest nnd best of all newspapers. Its telegraphic and cable news service ex- cells that of nny other paper. It prints the new news fully; not imaginative oc currences, out domestic 3ntl world dis tant, fully authenticated facts. The policies of the great political par tics are now being formed and the can didates discussed. .Sow is the time to subscribe for the beet medium of keep ing in touch with the whole world.

Its beautiful half tone illustra tions have already made it famous and their quality and quantity will be pre served. Xews features of ubsorbing attraction are illustrated and enlarged upon in a manner equal to the high priced maga zines. Events of current interest ore set forth in entertaining style. There is humor in its pages, too, and for the benefit of the ladies the latest Paris fashions are each week exquisitely illus trated and described. The Republic's Sunday Magazine is dtandard.

It is unfortunate for the Democrats that congress is still in session, nnd doubly unfortunate that the Republicans are about to ruin one of the chief "arguments" of the party of Rryan, JelTertson, Jackson el al. After conferring with Speaker Hen dersou. the committee on nil. intro duced a rule for the early consideration of the anti trust measures aud the ant trust constitutional amendment i to come up as a special order on June 1. The Democrats have attempted to iniike great capital out of the anti-trust agitation, but as n matter of fact when they have been in power they have never projiosed any plan or offered to remedy the evil of which they now so loudly complain. The Republican party hns al ways been ubliged to advocate and adopt without any help from the Democrats reforms for the benefit of the people Hut tho Republican party has always beeu equal to the demands made upon it. U will meet the trust question to the entire satisfaction of the people, aud thus another "plank" of the Iiryan plat form will be rendered useless. lty the time congress adjourns about the onlv "i88ue" left to the Democrats will be their support of Aguinaldo, and to that they are welcome.

A f-w weeksagn a steamer sailed from Xew Vork with twenty-rive hundred bar rels of American apples. The cargo in cluded choice specimens of a large num ber ot varieties, selected for their keep ing qualities as well as for beauty and flavor; and the whole shipment forms part of the Uuited States exhibit at the Pans Expedition. Iu addition to this, the state of Cali fornia has arranged to send a car load of nn.-cellaneonsi fr'uit t Paris once a week durugthe whole period the ex position lemains open. The fruit will cross the continent in refrigerator cars, and then proceed in cold t-torsgn from the Atlantic seaboard to France. Few Americans who have not traveled abroad are aware how small a quunity of fruit is ..aten in limit Uritniu and on the continent, as compared with the enormous supplx consumed in this coun try. U is an otd saying lhat an English man makes the eating of a peach almost a religious ceremcoy. Uindon papers treat as prodigious the receipts of orau ges from the continent; but it is inoigm licant as compared with the aniounl c.n suiued in this country. The European abstinence from fruit is due nut merely to the scarcity of fruit, but also to lack of appetite fur it and a belief that, as uu thing inure Hum an occasional article of diet, it is un wholesome. Our own experience as a people is exactly the continry. Amen cans are tint onl tho greatest fruit mis ers but the greatest fruit eaters in the world, Iheir tate in that respeel being one which their iliveisiliid climatic con dilions enable them to gratify in uuus ual variety. It is hoped that our fruit exhibit at the Paris Exposition will help to over come the European prejudice, aud so extend our mnrkets. It will at least demonstrate the penological wealth of the country, und the ability to deliver it anywhere in good condition.- Youtli'a Companion. Glorious News. Comes from Dr. D. II.
