We're All Right.
We recall a story about a baby who
" tad always, to the few months of his
' existence, been kept in a 'room where
a little gas burned at night. Once he
opened his eyes on utter darlfnes. At
first he showed great terror at "the new
unknown blackness. Then be realized
his own personal immunity f rom what
ever catastrophe might have en
veloped the world,1 and cried 'out re
assuringly, "Baby's all right!" Looting
across at Asia to-day, feel con-
siderably like that baby., All kinds of
disaster may' lurk ; in the clouds f in
' that, direction, but not for us. War
ox . no war,; alliances or single foes, !
victory for Russia or Japan, the Unit
ed States of America can feel its body
and be assured that all is about the
same.. Our security . is '.'due primarily
: to fortune and geography. It is in
creased, however, bythe judgment and
astuteness .of our pilot in foreign, af
fairs. If Mr Hay should suddenly ex-s
pire, and!' the delicate business of
fencing with clever diplomatists were
Intrusted to Sir Roosevelt himself, for
instance, or to somfl one equally '3.e
pendent upon luck for diplomatic safe-'
ty. a certain tremulousness would take
place of our serenity. If an 'untested
democratic candidate should be elect-'
ed president in ; November next, his .
choice of a cabinet would be observed
with serious concern. Perhaps a"
really enlightened democrat would en
deavor to retain Mr Hay, who has
never been known as much of a par y
man. The secretary's present hand
ling of eastern matters has equalled
any of his performances in the past.
He takes everything he can1 get for
this country, while risking nothing.
By closing a treaty with China iy
cable and sending consuls to the
treaty Sports in Manchuria, he has
made the open door a reality, and giv
en Russia ' no pi'etext for ; complaint,
since her professions in the past, how
ever insecure,1 are a complete . answer
to anything to which she may ob
ject. Her newspapers may rave at 'us,
but her diplomats will see that they,
have been outplayed; From the day
when' he Insisted, in. face of general
-incredulitv, that the legations .were
safe in Ping, down to this latest
outwitting of the country which !s the
cleverest . diplomatic gamester ;in Eu
rope, "Mr 'Hay's cautious baldness ha3
been one series of triumphs. ' In only
one' instance have we been- discom
fited in ' our foreign nefrot'atlons in
tbe case, namely of the Kishinef? peti
tion and that affair is nerally be
lieved to -have been hmdld by the

COLORADO'S COSTLY -fk
, Inthe grim tenacity of purpose, in
the methods f employed, in the number
ennstea on Dotn siaes in proportion to
the population of the state, and in the
appalling cost, both in life and proper
ty, the industrial war now going on in
Colorado is one of the most far-reaching
ever recorded in the labor history
of the world. ' ,
, .Thirty-five thousand workmen idle
on an average of five months each;
4,000,000. working days lost; $10,000,-
000 a .low estimate as a wage loss;
$30,000,000 conservative estimate
loss from direct damage and non-production
; $300,000 cost of national
(riiard ordered to three different .parts
of the , state within nine months fou
the protection of life and property.
A total loss at the mbst conservative
estimate, of $50,000,000. Andthjs is
a state where the total assessed val
uation is less than $150,000,000.
. This is the stupendous cost to Colo
rado of the labor troubles of the year
1003. Sixteen strikes. That is the
year's record. -Sixteen strikes affect
ing from 300 to 21,-000 men each and
lasting; from ten days to ten months
each."-- - ... i;. v
The results: A declaration of war
between capital and organized ' labor
as represented in tne state; the in
crease' of the national guard from 350
men in March, 1903, to 3,000 men ful
ly armed arid equipped; courts and
civil writs superseded in the mining
districts and martial law declared;
the suspension of the writ of habeas
corpus and the enforcement of the
"vag" law; in the mining . camps and
the subsequent deportation of all men
who refuse to -work.1 And, with all
this, the 25,000 miners in the metalli
ferous and coal camps are still out,
and threaten to "stay otit for months
to come, although their places: '. are
gradually being filled with imported
non-union "men-! . i ;
It has passed the point where one
can , refer to it as on "industrial up
heaval." It has become a (Social re
belliona rebellion against every
recognized standard of business as it
exists to-day a rebellion brought
about .by the determination of organ
ized labor , to reign supreme In Color
ado. ,. x tv--
To get at the real beginning of this
trouble you have to go back just
three , years. In , 1901, the state legis
lature, at the insistent demand of the
labor unions, passed an eight-hour
law, applicable to all classes of labor
in the state. A few months later, the
supreme court declared it unconstitu
tional at the behest of the mine own
ers, so the' labor leaders declared. But
whatever' the cause,, that started the
flght.v Labor in Colorado organized for
an eight-hour lay. They went into
politics and united with, the democrat
ic party, and at the; succeeding session
the eight-hour law failed to pass.
Then the unions , took the matter into
their own-, hand. . They ! formally Es
poused the cause of socialism in
June, 1903 and supported the social
istic platform , at the next election.
They ! failed to win at the polls,' and
then came the .threatened deluge of
strikes, with a war cry: ' '''011 fight

German' princes. With his next brother,
Eitel Fritz, the crown prince worked
very hard, first at home in Potsdam, and
then at the college at Plon, in Schles
wigHolstein. Oh, finishing his course
there, Tthe prince went to Bonn, where he
thoroughly enjoyed university life, and
matriculated with due honors. . .
' It was whilst he was at Bonn that he
was besieged one day by a 'deputation
. r- -
of schoolgirls, who brought postcards
for him to sign. After .the prince had at
tained his majority -celebrated with
much ceremony at Berlin he came out
into the world by visiting foreign courts.
j The prince had often been in England,
where he was much liked by his great
grandmother. Queen Victoria, and when
over there the summer after her death
he ; was invested by King Edward with
the! order of the garter. .
j Last spring the prince and his brother;
Prince Eitel, made a tour in the east,
and came home by Rome, having an au
dience of the late Pope. Leo XIII. spoke
of the young prince as the pambino piu
grande-7-the eldest little boy, much to the
brother's amusement. . Now the prince
has settled down to military duty" in
Potsdam .with his guards' regiment, , ,
; The crown prince shows his English
origin by his love of outdoor life. He is
a crack rider, and has competed in sev
eral military races-r-hardly altogether to
his father's satisfaction, as the em
peror detests horse racing. But shoots
ing is his favorite pursuit not in big
court drives' but a quiel day's sport with
' only a forester '0 'in .attendance. Th
prince has been very successful in deer
stalking, and displays the utmost pa
tience in following his quarry. '
At home he proves his talent as a pi
anist, for all the" princes have been
s taught, some musical instrument, and
the emperor and empress are very fond
of quiet family; musical evenings at
Potsdam. . The question of the day is:
; "Who will the crown prince marry?"
He is a little susceptible, but the choice
of a wife is as yet in the balance.
