'A gift of a return ticket to Mexico may yet look like an ac ceptable compromise to Dowie. While there will be a greater San Francisco, it is safe to say there will not be a taller one. Doubtless the shrewd Chicago detectives who went to San Francisco, have discovered al ready that the city had a fire. From the size of his contribu tion to the San Francisco Relief Fund, it is quite evident, that Rockefellow has no intention of dying poor if he can help it. Senator Tillman has been on all sides of nearly every public question, but generally for the purpose of finding its weak spot and jabbing something sharp in to if A correspondent in the New York Sun has at last solved for all time the problem as to what constitues a gentlemen. He is a man who "recognizes intense thirst in a fellow being and furn ishes the dime to satisfy it. All the railroad lines are carry ing refugees from San Francisco free of cost us far east as Chica go, are carrying supplies into San Francisco free of cost, and the Southern Pacific has offered its services free in removing the debris from the streets of the fal len city. The express companies are carrying packages and mon ey free to the people, and the tele graph companies make no charg es for transmitting messages. This proves that while corpora tions have no souls, the men at the head ot them have, and are very much like other men. The decision rendered by the Federal judge in the Packers' case granting immunity , to the Packers as indivuduals and hold ing their business responsible, appears to many as a farce. Un der the law the books of corpora tions can be opened for inspec tion for the purpose of ascertain ing whether the law has been re spected. By the decision in this case, if the books show a viola tion of the law. which renders the incorporators liable to pro secution for a criminal offense, such evidence cannot be used a gainst the perpetrators of the ofiense. They are immune upon constitutional grounds, which exempt them from being com pelled to witness against them selves. The evidence, may be used against the corporation. ... The Federal Constitution, born under the throes of great repres sion of individual rights, at tempted to guarantee the larg est individual liberty compatible with effective government' While it desired to extend ample power to the Government, it provided safe-guards of liberty for the citizen. It guaranteed freedom of speech, of the press, of assembly, and worship. It de nied prosecution for criminal of fense without formal indictment or an information. It exempted the one charged from being com pelled to witness against him self, from being placed twice in jeopardy for the same offense,, from excessive bail, and from cruel punishment. It guarante ed him a speedy public trial by an impartial jury, a process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and council where he was unable to furnish it. On the first day of his speech in the Senate, Mr. LaFollette noticed that some ot his col leagues had left the chamber. He defied all precedents by com men ting - on the fact. He had the audacity to say that if his iellow statesmen would not listen to him the public would do so and that the temporary absentees presently might find themselves obliged to be absent permanently. At the close of his address he went'further practical ly assuring the Senate that if it did not like the attacks of re formers and exposers it should keep its record tree from repro ach. The fact that after this un parrelled exhibition ofcontumeli ousness the Wisconsin Senator remains alive and in fighting trim, is suggestive if not inspir ing. Not withstanding the blows to Senatorial" courtesy the Sen ate walls did not fall nor did the ceiling drop. The object lesson thus afforded may prove highly useful later on in case other sen ators who care less for tradition than for the people.s welfare, take advantage of the precedent established by Mr. LaFollette. Making a Change. "You don't mean to tell me that you have named your baby Ananias?" "Yessuh," answered Uucle Ben, "dat's his name." "But Ananias was the most untruthful man in history." "Dat's de reason. We's gwine t'put that boy in politics. We's been namin' chillun George Wash ington foh yeahs an' it don't do no good. Now we's gwine t'try de odder fellah." Some newspapers are terrible liars. In writing of a cyclone in Kansas one of them said it turn ed a well inside out, a cellar upside down,' moved a township line, blew the staves out of a whiskey barrel and left nothing but a bung hole, changed the day of the week, blew the mortgage off a farm, blew all the cracks out of a fence and blew the wind out of a politician. Relief Measures Reduced to System. What to do with the immense amount of money which has been contributed for the relief of the San Francisco homelesl was a question that received earnest consideration by all those now engaged in the all important work of caring for them. So many inquiries have been sent to the heads of the various depart ments, civil and military, asking how and by whom the money so generously contributed will be expended, that the Associated Press has been asked to commun icate to the country at large the plan for disbursing these funds and the assurance that every dol lar will be put t use for which it is intended. ' while complete details of dis bursing and accounting for the immense sums contributed have not been thoroughly discussed in committee and may be briefly stated as follows: All expenditures will be author ized by the finance committee of citizens of the relief and Red Cross funds, members of which are representative bankers, busi ness men and jurists of San Fran cisco, with Dr. Devine, of the Na tional Red Cross Society. This committee will audit all accounts, make a detailed report to the war department, where a final audit and .statememt will be made. The recent British "Blue Book" estimates the territory over which the Union Jack now flies contains an area of 11,908,378 square miles, and is inhabited by 400,000,000 people. This is the largest empire of ancient or mod ern times, so far 'as area is con cerned. Curiously enough, an insignificant fraction of the whole area, comprising not more than 126,095 square miles produces and consumes more than the re maining 11,783,283 square mil es. Ex. GHAS.
