A The Smiths at Denver.
About 8 o’clock last night a bellboy In the lobby of the Albany got out In the middle of the floor and yelled: “Call for Mr. Smith.” ' Immediately there was a regular football rush around the boy.

At the station house the sergeant said to him, pointing toward a tub: “‘Strip and take a bath.’ “ ‘Vat, go in de vater?” shrieked th£ Magyar. “ ’Yes,’ said the sergeant, ‘take a bath. You need it. How long is it since you have had a bath?' “The Magyar lifted up his hands and rolled his eyes. “ ‘Oh,’ he said, ‘I never vaß arrested before.’ ” Down by the Lake.

It is but recently that the oriental has begun to awaken to an apprecia tion of himself. Hitherto he has not only allowed himself to be treated by the occidental as chance ordained, but has measured his ability with the crite rions set up by westerners. It is but yesterday that the Asian assumed an aggressive attitude and vowed that he would resist the intrusion of tho European and American, employing the occidental weapons to accomplish thrft end. The change In the attitude of the east towards the west during the last two decades has been phenomenal. It has led the Asiatic to resent the west ern insinuation that the oriental is the inferior of the occidental in mental and moral caliber. It has also wooed the Asiatic out of his inaction and leth argy of ages, inspired him with the de sire to break the shell of his limita tions and set his face towards modern ization and evolution. Time was. and not long ago, when the rank and file of even the cultured orientals were obsequious in their at titude towards even the mediocre westerner. To the Asiatic, “white” skin was synonymous with superior talent and character. The white man represented to him great strength of mind and body and skill of arms, of fensive and defensive. The Asian no longer mentally or physically prostrates himself before the Caucasian. To him, no more the Anglo-Saxon boast of surviving as the fittest has any weight. A brown or yellow hide has come to be, to him, as good an Index of character and cal iber as the white. What the new Occident wants to day is reciprocity. It demands for it self perfectly oven privileges in re turn for those which it extends to westerners within its gates. This attitude is likely to assume more aggressive and intensive form as the awakening proceeds apace and as the oriental succeeds in learning the arts and crafts of subjugating the forces of nature and utilizing them. Considered In this light, it is easy to understand the oriental view of Asiatic immigration to North America and the British colonies. The fli** thing to be noted in this connection is that the oriental Is no longer prepared to brook tho aspersion that he is the inferior of the Americans or British colonials. Another and more impor tant feature is that the hostile treat ment of the oriental immigrants can not but lead to untold and vexatious trado complications. The peddler who sold his wares from door to door had no status in the minds of his buyers and he could well afford to cheat as he never wished nor expected to duplicate a sale. The modern metropolitan de partment stores find that it is essen tial for them rather to lose a sale than dupe a customer. In business circles more and more the retentloh of good will and the satisfaction of the purchaser is becoming the sine qua non of success. It is not the new-fangled salesman, who induces a state of hypnosis and dupes the buyer into taking some article that he does not need or that is not its money’s worth, who Is the cornerstone of a successful store; nor is the impa tient and unobliging man behind tho counter or at the desk the keystone of a business enterprise. In the long run, both prove failures and represent the crystallization of penny-wlse pound-foolish philosophy. As it is with internal trade, so Is it with international commerce. The economic is an essential feature of inter-continental trade relations; but it has been the experience of business people whose operations extend world wide, that, other things being equal, the business man who is the most gentlemanly and obliging wins out in the race. To verify this statement, one has but to see how much business the Englishman loses in India through his snobbery and boorlshhess in his deal ings with the native East-Indian trader. In the past It has been the case that on account of the weakness and inalertness of the oriental, the west erner in the east has had his own way. It was very much similar to what he did in North America. The North American Indians, unable to cope with the aggressors and incapable of civilizing themselves according to the western canons, found themselves driven to reservations and extinction. In several of the oriental countries the Anglo-Saxon has attempted the same thing, but without the same suc cess. In India, for Instance, 70,000,- 000 people have been ground to such dire and painful poverty that they cannot manage to secure a single sat isfying meal a day. In China the at tempt has boon made to parcel tho country and divide it amongst the Eu ropean powers. The near-east has similarly been the subject of such machinations. Persia and Afghanistan and the adjoining territory have been threatened with a similar fate. But for many reasons the oriental coun tries have been saved from the doom of the red Indian. Their present-day awakening to a realization of their situation and possibilities promises that they will not only avert an igno minious fate, but that in the near fu ture a better and more equitable ad justment of the relations between the orient and the Occident will take place. So far there have been two stand ards of equity. With the one the westerner has measured himself — with the other, he has adjudged the easterner. The occidental has gone to Asian countries, through intrigue and base devices obtained possession of the land, fettered the people and ex ploited the resources for his Belflsh Interests. But he has Invariably re sented it when the Asiatic turned around and showed a disposition to pay him the same sort of compliment. The fiasco which has resulted from Asiatic immigration in Australia, Can ada, the United States, South Africa, etc., is mainly to be attributed to this unreasonable and inequitable dealing of the occidental in regard to the Asiatic; but there is hope of a satisfactory solution, a's the spirit of the times has sounded the death knell for the maintaining of this dual stand ard of ethics. Gradually the emanci pated woman is obliging man to judge her by the same standards with which ho judges himself. With the march of civilization and with the gradual evolution of the orient, the Occident will find that, like the “new” woman, the “new” oriental will not submit to humiliating treatment. This new rapprochement appears even at this moment just about to mount the horizon. In size it is no bigger than a man’s hand: but from all indications It Is certain to Increase in dimensions. The resistance that the East-Indian immigrants are of fering in the Transvaal, refusing to submit to degrading immigration laws and preferring to lose all their vested property and rights and even to rot in jails: the recent memorial of the native East-Indian soldiers to the com mander-in-chief of the British em pire that they be taken out and shot dead rather than be allowed to be hu miliated by unjust and tyrannical Brit ish colonists; the preparations that India is making to boycott the incom ingof British colonials and their goods; the stout resistance that the Japanese immigrants have offered .on this conti nent; all portend the aggressive atti tude that the orient is displaying— that the day is near dawning when the occidental shall have to do by the oriental as he wishes to be done by. In considering the matters per taining to oriental Immigration, it must be remembered that the orient is not planning a fell swoop on the Occident. Tho aggressiveness of the oriental Is not flowing into the chan nel of an attempt to despoil the North American continent as did tho Huns the Roman empire. The pres ent-day oriental finds too much con structive work to do at home, to think of such an invasion; and deems the very mention of yellow and brown peril a ludicrous monstrosity. His aggressiveness Is finding an outlet merely in the attitude which he is as suming toward tho Occident —which, it must be distinctly understood, is not of hostility but rather of reci procity. The Asian is not scheming to thrust himself by sheer force upon the Occident. He only pleads for equit able treatment. Asia is the oldest continent of the world. Many of Its countries pro thick ly populated. However, the re sources of the orient are practically inexhaustible and have scarcely been touched. The occidental exploiters have but secured the crude surface wealth, and beneath this somewhat exhausted crust lie treasures untold. The new orient, unless it is usurped as a breeding place for tho European exploiter, will provide an ample living to the oriental himself. With a sys tem of intensive and scientific agri culture, with the harnessing of rivers, creeks and waterfalls, with the em ployment of steam and electricity in manufactures, with the extension of the transportation facilities and with the development of educational policy and administration, the orient, thick ly populated and old as it is, will supply better opportunity for a com fortable life; and tho masses of orientals who are being pinched by poverty and famine into America and the British colonies will live content edly in their native lands. If tho $100,000,000 that India pays annually to England as Its tribute to Its liege lord remained In the country; and if the lucrative government appoint ments that to-day are monopolized by aliens were held by the natives of the land, the home-loving Hindoos would not find it necessary to go to Canada or British Africa. As It Is, the settlement of the Hindoo immigra tion problem hinges to a large extent upon whether the Occident will or will not continue to “milk” Hlndostan. If the west will but keep its hands off Asia —will cease looking at the resources of the orient with covetous eyes and fighting for their possession, the ori ental will be enabled to stay peace fully at home in his own land, and th« problem of the “yellow and brown peril” will solve itself. Even the "little men” of Japan will more and more confine their Immigration and ex ploitation to their own continent and cease thrusting themselves upoa the hostile occiden* JAMES S. SHERMAN SIDELIGHTS ON NOMINEE FOR VICE-PRESIDENT. Is Very Popular In His Home City ot Utica, N. Y.—Fond of National Game and an Inveterate Reader of Fiction. Utica, N. Y.—“ Jim” Sherman, the Republican candidate for vice-presi dent, is very popular here. So is his family. He has several brothers and one of them. Richard W., finished a second term as mayor of Utica last January. The mayor is a Democrat. So is the whole Sherman family ex cepting Jim. He, too, used to be a Democrat, but iu 1876, shortly after serving as a Democratic delegate in the state convention, he became a Re publican. Ten years later his new party sent him to congress aiulfyio has been there ever since, except for the two years 1891-93, having been one of the many who were swamped in the Democratic tidal wave of 1890. “Jim” is chairman of the local Ice trust, and liis brother, while mayor, got after him in warm style, making sensational charges against the trust. However, all the Sherman brothers are the host of friends. Mr. Sherman came most widely in national repute when in 1906 he was chairman of the Republican congres sional committee in charge of the cam paign. It was in that campaign that he earned the sobriquet "Send Your Dollar Jim,” or “Dollar Jim,” as the solicitor and recipient of dollar contri butions, suggested by President Roose velt when so much was being said in criticism of great campaign contribu tions by corporations. Sherman had the fight of his career in that same campaign to retain his own seat, for there was strong opposi tion organized in his district. Samuel Gompers personally campaigned against him. Also opposing him were the anti-organizations Republicans, the Democrats, united laborites and Inde pendence leaguers, besides the candi dates of lesser parties, and the cam paign was active.

When the rain keeps Mr. Sherman indoors he can usually be found en grossed In a piece of fiction. He is an inveterate fiction reader. Not that he has neglected the classics, but he prefers something lighter for Ills rec reation hours. Once when Reed was speaker of the house he telegraphed that he would go to Sherman's home In New York to discuss a matter with him, and asked him to have .a certain report ready. When the speaker arrived at the Sherman home he found the congress man poring over a book, deeply in terested In it “Ah, looking up data on our mat ter?” commented Mr. Reed. “Yes,” replied Sherman. “Just wait a minute; I want to see if the heroine really weds this fellow or not. I’m interested.” A story is told of Mr. Sherman that he was in his committee roo?n at Washington one evening dictating a report to his stenographer while two pages were carrying on a discussion as to the relative batting ability of Lajoie and the late Delehauty. Mr. Sherman apparently was engrossed in the reports and figures in front of him, and baseball scores and averages seemed the furthest from his mind. "Lajoie batted .402 last year,” said one of the pages, “and Delehanty has not hit more’n a double this year. He's battin’ about .200, if that much." “He batted .316 up to yesterday, sonny," came the sudden interruption from Congressman Sherman, "and he leads the league In extra base hits. And you’ve got the Lajoie dope wrong. He batted .406.” And then he resumed his dictation. Mrs. James S. Sherman Is a woman of attractive address, who is In no sense a social butterfly and who has in Washington confined her social ef forts and attentions to the congres sional set and such matters as are re quired of a representative’s wife. Her health is not such as to permit a stren uous social campaign.
