WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT. WEpJSESlUY, DECEMBER 23. 1903.
Jk ri- Old IF a Oo r i t e tggy y if J THE L"D VER'S ERR A N D By Henry Wadiworth Lonjfllew -? TITE poem reprinted below Is an extract from "The Courtship of Miles Standlsh." The arsument of the first part of the long poem Is that Captain Miles Standlsh. the commander of the military forces of Plymouth colony, being a hardened man at arms and unused to courting, tends his friend, young John Alden, to plead for him wtth pretty Priscilla. Mulllns. What follows Is best told In the poet's own words. , The portrait of Miles Standlsh Is shown herewith. mw HATE been thinking all day," said gently the Puritan maiden, 'I I "Dreaming all night; and thinking'all day, of the hedgerows of Eng J - land, They are in blossom now, and the country is all like a garden; Thinking of lanes and fields, and the song of the lark and the linnet, Seeing the village street, and familiar faces of neighbors Holne about as of old, ( and stopping to gossip together, A. nf the nd nf th street, the vlllace church, with the ivy . 3. & Climbing the old gray tower, and the quiet graves in the churchyard. ' T- . . ... ft A iJ A H 'T Kind are the people l live wun, ana.aear to me my ieuwu( , .,.. x Still my heart is so sad, that I wish myself back in Old England. You will say It is wrong, but I cannot help it: I almost j Wish myself back in Old England, I feel so lonely and wretched." t Made by a good man and true, Miles Standlsh, the Captain of Plymouth!" J ' ' - ' '. ' ' "If the sxeat cantain of Plymouth is so very eager to wed me, 4 Why does he not come mmseir, ana tatte uie uoupib vu www mei If I am not worth the wooing, I surely am not worth the winning!" Then John Alden began explaining and smoothing the matter, s niHTier it vnn as he went by saving the Captain was busy. Had no time for such things; such things! the words grating harshly 'ell -on the ear of Priscilla; and swift as a, flash she mad,e answer: Has no time for such things, as you call it, before he is married, Would he be likely to find it, or make it, after the wedding? That is the way with you men; you don't understand us, you cannot When you have made up your minds, after thinking of this one and ; that one,, . . v'l.' Choosing, selecting, rejecting, comparing one with another, Then you make known your desire, with abrupt and sudden avowal, Thereupon answered the youth: "Indeed 1 do not condemn you; Stouter hearts than a woman's have quailed in this terrible winter. ' YnriiR Is tender and trusting, and needs a stronger to lean on: So I have come to you now, with an oiler and proffer of marriage -K - -fc And are offended and hurt, and indignant perhaps, that a woman f Does not respond at once to a love that she never suspected, Does not attain at a bound the height to which you have been climbing. -This is not tight nor Just: for surely a woman's affection 4c - Is not a thing to be asked for, and had for only the asking. i When one is truly In love, one not only says It, but shows it. ; ?

Old and rough as he is; but now it never can.bappen." ' Still John Alden went on, unheeding the words of Priscilla, Urging the suit of his friend, explaining, persuading, expanding; But as he warmed and glowed in his imple and eloquent language, Quite forgetful, of self, and full of' the praise of his rival, Archly the maiden smiled, and, with eyes overrunning with laughter, . Said, in a tremulous voice, "Why don't you speak for yourself, John?" SCHWABJNSWER. Denies Emphatically All In tent of Conspiracy or Fraud.

PARKER, Illinois State Senator HE churches have failed to do their duty by the la boring man. .THE CHUKCH OAK SOLVE THE LABOR PROBLEM, BUT DOES M)T. The church as such should enter politics in . the interest of labor. The churches have catered TOO MUCH jto capital and have thought , TOO LITTLE of the needs of the -vcorldng classes. Union labor is justified in its bitter 'attitude toward the churches. - The workingman is not in need of a religion of HU3MILITY, the basis of -which is faith. The church has no monopoly of the Ten Oom- mandments. .The average workman practices them as carefully as: the ordinary church member. The workingman is an ordinary hu man being, no BETTER , than the. capitalists, and he could not be rmuch WORSE. . . -V'1-..,', ' ? n ' , 1 - ; : .-"v , He wants the same religion that we want, a religion tthat 'will help in the everyday struggles and enter into the conditions of his daily life. He does not want a fanciful thing that NO ONE can ....understand..' -;;; ( ". How can the workingman who sees graft taking away the ben efits of franchises and special privileges and giving them to monop olies believe in a church which never lifts a finger to prevent these ' robberies? The political power of the church must come back to it. Reform Is Needed In College Athletics By A. E. STEARNS, Principal Phillips Academy. Andover, Mass. HAVE seen, many an athletic coach, devoting hours to teaching his young followers how they may cleverly disobey the rules of the game "WITHOUT RISK OF DETECTION, and I think that I am safe in saying that the majority of coaches are given to this business. I have heard boys complain that they were advised that a little profanity at times would tend to demoralize their opponents. And from college graduates I myself have on more than one occa sion heard some of the vilest and filthiest abuse heaped upon a player in their charge to which it has ever been my lot to listen. H The senseless and disgraceful wrangles which are constantly tak ing place between the representatives of our institutions" of learning over the question of their athletic relations are a disgrace to the in stitutions. THE SITUATION CALLS FOR .VIGOROUS AC TION, FOR NECESSARY REFORM. WHAT CIGARETTES DO FOR BOYS By City Magistrate LEROY B. CRANE Of New York i IONGRESS SHOULD STOP THE SALE, MANU FACTURE AND IMPORTATION OF CIGA RETTES. I AM DETERMINED TO DO ALL I CAN TO PREVENT THEIR USE. , t Out of 300 boys brought before me charged with various crimes 205 were cigarette smokers. This surely goes to prove that the boys who do not smoke do not stray into the paths that lead to the police court. , PARENTS SHOULD IMPRESS ON THEIR SONS THE' EVIL OF THE CIGARETTE HABIT, AND IT SHOULD BE TAUGHT IN THE SCHOOLS. There in an endless chain movement to get millions of signers to prohibit tho palo of cigarette?, and I believe it will do much Vlnftticlr flaya He Kmr Mlrpre' ented Bethlehem Company' Po sition mnd Make Heneral De alal o( All 'Wrons-dolns. NEW YORK, Dec 23 CUarles" M. Bebwab has fllod answer to the crons bill of tbe United Statea Ship building company and James Smith, Jr.; Its receiver, In tlie United States circuit court for the Southern district of New York. The case Is that of the companj' and It recelrer against the New York Security and Trust company and Mr. Bchwab. . v After admitting certain of the funda mental facts which have heretofore been established "Mr. Schwab takes up the various allegations and charges of the crow) bill. He say a: "I deny that I ever wag or became one of the promoters of the shipbuild ing company or that I and a number of persons associated with me acquired the capital stock of . the Bethlehem Steel company as averred in said cross bilk "I admit that the property of said Bethlehem , Steel company was on the 12th day of August, 1902, encumbered by a first mortgage executed by the Bethlehem Iron company, the predeces sor in title of said steel company, to secure bonds Aggregating $1,351,000 bearing- interest at the rate of 5 per cent per annum and a purchase money mortgage executed by said steel com pany to secure the payment of $7,500, 000 bearing interest at the rate of 6 per cent per annum." . ' Mr. Schwab denies that he ever made any false representations regaining the Bethlehem Steel company and denies that his stock on July 31, 1902, was not worth to exceed $7,500,000. He says: VI admit that I am the own er' and holder of upward of $9,000,000 of the $10,000,000 of the bonds and up ward of $9,000,000 of the $10,000,000 of f the preferred stock and upward of $9, 000,000 of the $10,000,000 of the com mon stock of the shipbuilding company' issued for the stock of the steel com pany, but I deny that any associates of mine are the owners of the "remainder of the preferred and common stock so ? issued for the stock of the Bethlehem Steel company, except that I sold and ; transferred some of said bonds and stocks to third parties." j Mr. Schwab is of the belief that the stocks received in exchange for the steel 'stock did not exceed the value of the steel stock. He denies that the bonds were issued without considera tion. . . Mr. Schwab closes his defense by de nying every charge of fraud, misdoing, unlawful combination and confederacy j and "humbly t prays to . be hence dis ; missed with his reasonable costs and charges in this behalf most wrongful ly sustained." - ' Novel Suggestion. , The earl of Meath, a somewhat en thusiastic British humanitarian, has suggested to the London school author ities that children of the elementary trades be taken from the city and brought up in model country villages, the parents to pay only the bare cost of food,' the county council footing other expenses. He urges that , in this way children of the very poor would have an otherwise unobtainable chance to grow up strong, healthy and good' citizens. In addition, many of them would prob ably stay n the country, thereby help ing to repopulate the rural districts. Told Her Ae. ' Usually only cruel necessity, would compel an unmarried woman to ac knowledge herself over 30 in the face of a large public meeting. But Miss"Vida Goldstein, a female candidate ' for the commonwealth senate in Victoria, did not shrink from the ordeal, for 30 is the minimum statutory age for .an Aus tralian senator. In the opening speech of her campaign, delivered in Portland, her birthplace, she contradicted the ren port that she was only 25, and boldly proclaimed herself 32. FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL.

J '- . Time o It, " It will be something to see the Rus sians fight the Japanese. It will be nearer . demonstrating what happens when the Irresistible force meets the Im movable object, than anything that has . occurred in a long time, writes O. K. Davis, former war corre spondent, of the "Threatened Strug gle," in; Everybody's. In the end weight may tell, and Russia win, but it will be only after some desperate and spectacular fighting, in which it is by no means sure that the Russians will have all the advantage. , Behind entrench ments, there .is not much choice be tween them. In the open field the Jap anese should be victorious, other things being equal, because of their astonish ing mobility. . They will go around the Russians very much as the cooper in the old adage went around his barrel. But after that, what ? Admiration of the Japanese is unavoidable for one who has Been them in active service, but one who has seen the Russians will never forget the impression of mass they give. Contemplation of a struggle between the two always brings up a picture of a small may trying to stop a great stone from rolling down hill by getting in front of it. He may check it at the start, but it E' "iers momentum as ' his strength rs out, and it will overthrow him at and crush him. POPULAR, PENM-A-WORD A ; LATE WANTS..

Consequently British philanthropists, who know how care fully the children are looked after in their new homes, think that the num ber sentfrom the overcrowded British cities to the spacious colonies could be Increased with profit to the empire1 as well as to the children.
