Not less than one hundred com pleted cabinets have been offered to Mr Taft but the newspapers will probably learn that Mr Taft Is some thing, of a cabinet maker himself. South Dakota has voted away a $600,000 annual Income and the glory of her divorce courts.! Where is the state now that will come to the rescue of the slightly married and reap the reward of gratitude and a full treasury. The republicans are so securely entrenched in Connecticut that the Internal rows they are having does not jeopardize the' chances of the g. o. p. Before the election there was a hand to hand combat and now the biggist light in the history of te party is on between Hill and Brande. gee for a place in the United, States senate. It Is , well for the country delegates that this is their dull sea' son, for they will be kept busy enough by the workers for the. sena torial candidates. A good sharp rep resentative, without a conscience ought to be able to make enough to keep him through the winter, if he is anything like those Cheshire vot ers that took and delivered. The growth of the mineral indus tries of the United States is graphi cally exhibited by a chart just issued by the geological survey, tabulating for each year of the last decade the quantity and value of the output of our metallic and non-metallic min eral products. This chart shows that in 1898 the domestic production of the metals pig iron, silver, gold, copper, lead, zinc, quicksilver, alumi num, antimony, nickel and platinum had a total value of $305,482,183; in the same year, the total value of the other mineral products amounted to $418,790,671; the grand total for the country in 1898 was therefore $724,272,854. Ten years later, at the close of the calendar year 1907, the value of the minerals had in creased to $903,024,005, that of the other products to $1,166,265,191, and the grand total was $2,069,289,- 196. The chart has great interest and value in connection with a sum mary of the mineral production of the country, published by the survey as an advance chapter from "Mineral Resources of the United States, Cal endar Year 1907," and copies of both the chart and the summary may be obtained by applying to the director of the survey at Washington, D. C. The survey has also published for free distribution separate chapters of its annual report on the mineral re sources of the country, giving detail ed statistics of many of the products that make up these details. On December 1 the national con servative commission will meet in Washington and a week later it will hoid a joint meeting with the gov ernors and their representatives, The commission has started work with much enthusiasm, evinced particu larly by those members who are con nected with the federal government at Washington. The ambitious plan was at once adopted of taking an "inventory of. the natural- resources of the United States," and this work, the public is informed, has, been pro ceeding at a gratifying pace, so that the Inventory may be presented at tbe forthcoming meetings, while it will be in good time to be Incorpor ated in the report which President Roosevelt has requested the commis sion make him not later than Janu ary 1 next. Enthusiasm and ambi tion are to be commended in all le gitimate work, says an exchange. but there is sometimes a question whether they may not lead to the de taching of a morsel larger than can be masticated properly. At any rate, it is painfully evident that thus far the conservation movement is along statistical rather than practical lines. It may be well to learn just what our resources are, but in the long run It is more important to find practical means whereby they can be con served. Encouragement to the use of natural resources in a way which will give the public the greatest good with the least depletion is one thing and general restriction to activity is another thing. Tbe former is the line of action which most commends itself. It should be borne in mind that the work which this country is doing Is not a unit nor a group of units; .it Is merely the sum total of tbe 87,000,000 poeple who are fit to do anything. .. . Had the fathers foreseen ths power and patronage wielded . by Tresldeut Roosevolt, perhaps a hun drod fold broader than their broad est Imaginings, they would have de spaired of the permanency of the re public. Yet we see that the Inter ests of the people and the perpetuity of the republic have been as safe In President Roosevelt's hands as they were In those of the first president." This statement was made by John C, Richberg, president of the Illinois commission on uniform state laws, In making a plea before the American Prison association for a voluntary adoption oj uniform laws by all states. Mr Richberg said that "Pres ident Roosevelt has, during his ad ministration, devoted much of his time and energy In the Interests of uniform laws and has urged upon congress, particularly under the In terstate commerce clause of the con stitution, the enactment of laws upon subjects over which the national gov ernment can properly take jurisdic tion. The demand for national leg islation will increase in the future, and it may be necessary that, from the impossibility of perfect adapta tion of one great law to a thousand local conditions, certain communi ties, and even sections, may bo re quired to sacrifice personal desires, individual methods of business and even, perhaps, climatic habits of thought,' for the furtherance of the general welfare. Yet it may be con fldently expected that, members of such associations as this, striving for high ideals, will Individually wield I influence to prevent sectional' and state jealousies, local pride and preju. dices, from nullifying the conscien tious efforts made by the commission, ers on uniform state laws and similar organizations,' to unify the interests and social standards of a far-spread people and hasten the realization of a truly united nation." HEARD IS PASSIMS. Governor Taylor, formerly of Ken tucky, and now for well known rea sons temporarily residing in Indiana, naturally feels anxious to know how ; the democratic governor-elect stands i on the little matter of requisition. We can't blame him for being a bit nervous. Bridgeport Post. According to Sheriff Pennell of Portland, Me, the male prisoners at the county jail are fed like animals instead of like men. The sheriff Is In a position to know what he is talk ing about and no time should be lest in making a change. Maine is pre sumed to be a civilized state. New London Day. If the empress of China, who has just died, could only have seen some of the many and varied pictures of herself now. being printed on the front, pages of American newspapers from Maine to California, we believe that she would have given way to a heartier laugh than years Of her dull, eventless life in the Pekin palace have provided. Xew Haven Journal Courier. Governor Lilley is going to live n Hartford and has secured a home there already to which he will move with his family In due time. He will be in touch with the "executive cham ber" most of the time, and that will be an advantage to him and the state. And then something goes with the mere fact of living in Hartford! That counts for considerable as a gu bernatorial privilege. Bridgeport Standard. Spanish Nicknames. One of the peculiar ways In which Spanish differs from English is in the names the language gives to all peo ple with a certain Infirmity or peculiar ity. A blind man Is referred to as el ctego, a man with but one eye is a tuerto, a pug nosed man is chato, one who is cross eyed is a blsojo, a cojo is a lame man, and a inanco bas but one arm. If he Is humpbacked, he is a Jorobado; if baldheaded, a calvo, and if bis hair is very short be is a pelon. Tbe feminine titles for the same classes are the same, with the exception that they end in "a" where the masculine terminate with "o." These short names are need most commonly. In fact, they are applied as nicknames in many cases, and especially among the lower classes persons are addressed or re ferred to only by these names.

LANGLEY Yellow Front ONE BROTHER DYING, THE OTHER SHOT DEAD Pittsburg Lawyer and Race Track Follower Quarrel. nttsburg, Nov., 19,-Reuben Crown, until recently a follower of eastern race tracks, shot himself to death here after mortally wounding bis brother. Joseph Crown, the brother; a prac ticing attorney, well known in this city. Is dying in a hospital, a bullet having penetrated bis breast. Both 'shots, it Is alleged, were fired by Reuben Crown following a quarrel between the brothers over money mat ters. The brothers inherited valuable prop erty in this city, and Reuben borrowed upon the property from time to time until three years ago, when, according to the deposition made by Joseph, the latter bought him out. Reuben appeared at Joseph's office in the Blakewell building and asked another loan. Other tenants beard Jo seph refuse and order his brother to leave the office.
