FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1002. Bebgxant Julius Fridehicks, •ho was one of the ill-fated Oreelcy expedition to the North Pole, states that the region of the North Pole ie habitable in his opinion. That while on his trip he saw a great city to the north of Uia farthest point he reached ssd unmistakable signs of verdure, and paatures for the sustenance of animal life. Tha farthest point north leached, wal 83 degrees and 24 mln htes. And there the temperature •as warmer than at 81 degrees. Wild geese were still going north at (hit point. He thinks that Prof. Andres may yet bo alive in the vi cinity of the pole. All of this seems kt first glance very foolish, but the (precession of the equinoxes proves that as the earth slowly swiugs round from south to north so that the west will at some fntnre day occupy the present north, is it not possible that a people may bo caught in the regions of tho pole and from sheer Necessity on dure the rigors of that togioa. The Committee In charge of tho Construction of the McKinley monu ment at Canton, Ohio, nre greatly disappointed at the smallness of tho popular contribution. It is thought It will not exceed, ovcu if it reaches 1200,000. whereas they had made preparations to expend $2,000,000 Id its construction. Marble and brass cannot represent the true esti mate ia which oar great men arc hold by the common people. Mr. McKinley built his own monument in hla lifo lime and it he. had died be fore the treaty of Paris, not a stain could attach to his fame. But tho Philippine Archipelago end bin deal ings with that despoiled people will ha his monument to time unniemori- M.

Bat one faraway feature is the old steamboat pilot in a stormy sea ss he stands oat in the frontis piece, with a visage of a truo Mark Twain dimension; and its funny when ire stop to think the nearest naviga ble water is Salt Lake GOO miles away.

Mr. Turner concluded his speech begun last Friday on the legal and constitu tional phaso of the Philippine ques tion. Ho held In tho mam that as the Filipinos had established an in dependent government in the islands prior to the falling of Manila, the United States, under the principles of international law, had no right iu ths Islands. He denounced tho Philippine com mission as puppets of tho exoco tivc, and declared that their so called laws were not enacted in the misrsst of the people of the islands. The commission, he said, do only what they are told to do by the presi dent and the secretary of war. Mr. Turner referred to the Philippine se dition act as not only unconstitution al, bnt as “A relio of barbarism TOO BLACK F.VF.N FOR THE MOST DES POTIC AND TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT THAT NOW EXISTS ON THE FACE OF the earth.” —[The foregoing extract from tne speech of Senator Turner of tha stato of Washington—especially the latter part—is certainly strong language. If the charge he makes against the sedition act, by which free speech is interpreted to be treas on in tho Philippines is false, he ought to he expcllod from the senate. But if it is true it ought to cause the American people at least to stop and think what they are doing.

The case is one brought to forco an adjudica tion between Colonel Moore and Mon te ’Blevins, as to rights growing out of their old partnership here in the Park.

They succeeded in renting several and the dogs gave chase and caught and ktllel three. It was rare sport and the dogs did remarkably well, considering their training.
