Insisted that German should be spoken in

Although the socialist party In Italy has
succeeded lh preventing the proposed visit
of the csar to Italy, and thereby Inflicted a
serious blow against the credit of the gov
ernment, the achievement, according to the
testimony of English newspaper correspon
dents, has made them so unpopular that
they are not likely to profit much by It.
There Is a chorus of Indignation against the
weakness displayed by the Zanardelll minis
try, which remained passive and Inactive,
although the socialists were declaring
openly In their meetings that the csar. If
he ventured to come to Rome, would en
counter a hostile demonstration. Some of
the Italian newspapers, while condemning
the ministry, are complaining that the
Krench socialists maintained fully as
threatening an attitude as the Italian, but
that the ciar did not, on that account,
hesitate to visit Tarls. The answer to this,
of course, la that the French government
had exhibited the determination and the
ability to keep Its revolutionists In order.
The refusal of the csar to visit him Is un
derstood to have been a bitter disappoint

been on terms of .close personal Intimacy
with the Russian potentate, and bas al

velopment of the country. The moment
of the supreme struggle was on hand.
The government of Holland, after ap
pointing a competent board of engineers
to carefully estimate every Item of cost, i
is considering a proposition to csnallse
the Zuyder Zee by diking the North sea
and diking the Tesel river and other trib
utaries. The total capitalised expenditure
for the principal and Interest at S per cent
will be $14s,128.4M, but this will be reduced
from time to time by the rentals and sales
of the reclaimed lands until it snail do

greatest sea wall In the world, costing W,-
00,000, will be the initial structure, and the
rest of the money will Inclose the river

A great canal scheme for the English
Midlands Is under consideration and likely
eoon to be put Into execution. The object
of It is to connect Manchester and Liverpool
with the Potteries, Wolverhampton and
Birmingham. A surveying party has been
making an exhaustive examination of the
levela with a view to beginning digging
operations In the course of a few months.
It is believed that the promoters have the
upport of the Mersey Weaver Navigation
trustees and that tho canal will be an ex
tension of their system. This runs from
"Weston Point, at the Junction of the Man
chester Ship canal and the Mersey estuary,
to Wlnsford (Cheshire), and at present car
ries a large proportion of the salt, chemi
cal and earthenware traffic of the coun
try. It la proposed to extend the canal so
a to admit of the paasage of steamers of
S00 tona to the Potteries, Wolverhampton
and Birmingham. There is a small canal
already existing, which only carries barges
of from twenty-five to fifty tons, and china
and the earthenware manufacturers are en
thuslastlcally In favor of a waterway which
would enable them to secure their china
clays in larger bulk and export ware with
out trans-shipment and consequently at
much less expense. The local chambers of
commerce are expected to furnish sub
stantial aid to the enterprise.
There are symptoms In Denmark of an
Inclination to 'enter into more friendly re
lations wfth Germany and It is even re
ported that King Christian has promised
to visit Dresden to be present at the un
veiling of a statuo to Bismarck. The edftor
of the Danish ministerial organ, the PolitU
ken. suggests that the economic situation
of Denmark and the danger of a protec
tionist England, may account for this ac
tion on the part of the old king. Denmark,
he says, could not support the crisis which
would be the consequence of such a change
In England. 8he must have new openings
at any cost and shs could find no better
substitute for the English market than
that of Germany. "The conquest of the
German market is the object aimed at by
King Christian and It is In order to preserve
tar his people the possibility of a treaty
of commerce with that empire that he for
gets the Just grievances of Denmark
against her southern neighbor."
Senor Balmeron, ex-president of the
short-lived Spanish republic has been talk
ing with a newspaper correspondent In Hi-.-drld
and declaring his conviction that the
monarchy will soon disappear and be sue-
cwjuimi oy a popular government, tie ae
clined, however, to explain his reasons for
this confidence. The retirement of Senor
Bllvola from public life he described as an
vent of extraordinary political signifi
cance, and he commended his views of the
situation as extremely statesmanlike.
Ppaln, he said, was passing through one of
the most serious crises In her constitut
ional history. The republicans had a
, higher duty to fulfill than the mere' utter,
ance of criticism upon Us blunders of the
liberals and the conservatives, which hud
brought about a permanent conflict be-,
tween the royal authority and the will
of the country. They must combine to
put an end to the evils that threaten the
ruin of the country. They appealed to
ail men of liberal tendencies to help them
In the deliverance of the country and 'the
restoration of liberty. Only the liberals,
he added, understood that the salvation
Steel Trust Passes " Threatens
Dire Things.
Minneapolis Times.
A decidedly refreshing bit of anti-
monopoly work was that done by Sec
retary Moody in awarding to the Mldvale
Steel company a contract for one-third of
the 16,000 tons of armor p'.iite needed for
the new battleships. Tho Carnegie and
Bethlehem companies, 1 nut sad of gobbling
the whole contract at their own price.
secured awards for (.000 tons each and
waxed exceeding wroth.
As a matter of fact the Mldvale company
was the lowest bidder and. If It had
possessed facilities for uolng the work,
would have been lawfully entitled to the
entire contract. It offered to give bond
for the fulfillment of the contract, but
there was some question of Its ability to do
the work on time and for this reason the
award was divided.
There are two encouraging features in
tho transaction. One is the administration's
defiance of the dictates of the steel trust's
armor plate monopoly and the other the
certainty that a new plant for the manu
facture of that important material will be
established. The government has been pay
ing double prices to the trust and If the
Mldvale company succeeds in meeting re
quirements this extortion will cease.
This will renew ogitatlon for the addition
of an armor plate factory to the naval
construction and repair equipment. . It is
entirely Illogical that a rich and powerful
government should remain at the mercy
Of a greedy trust and pay exorbitant prices
for Its armor plate. If we are to have a
large navy the taxpayers will be robbed
of many millions unless one of two things
shall occur either the bringing of prices
to a reasonable level by the competition of
the Mldvale company or the manufacture
of armor plate by the government Itself.
Meanwhile, the steel trust is theatenlng
dire vengeance. It proposes to overthrow
the Roosevelt administration In return for
being balked in Its extortion. If the people
have anything to say about It the admin
istration will not be defeated on that ac
count, whatever other causes for dissatis
faction there may be.

"Nothing In the way of illustration that
has yet appeared affords anything like an
adequate conception Of the impresalvenees
of the new Washington station," Is Major
Pangborn's comment upon such as has thus
far been published in connection with the
114.000,000 union passenger terminals for
which the Baltimore Ohio and Pennsyl
vania companies have just completed the
letting of contracts. Major Pangborn Is a
Baltimore ec Ohio man, the director of that
company's great Boctlon at the St. Louis

feet allotted to It, will typify the evolu

in the vast structure devoted to transporta
tlon exhibits, and, for that matter. In the
entire exposition will stand a model of
the Washington station as t-ppeartng when
finished. Fronting eighty feet, with a depth
of forty feet and rising to a height of
fifteen feet from the floor, it Is upon a
scale of proportions and effectiveness be
lieved to have never before been attempted
in an architectural model. The showing
of the interior is being as painstakingly
looked to as is the exterior, with such ar
rangements of the base perfected as to
enable the passing through below and rais
ing head high, so to speak, to fully com
prehend the Inside plan. As a matter of
course, a muuui, iibcil as uif as a uuuae,
as the saying goes. Is of ample dlm?nf Ions to
permit a thousand or mors people to walk
upright about In It, but this manner of In
spection would be at the expense of
dwarfing the noble proportions of the struc
ture, hence the provisions for the heads

points, through the marble floor.

well known personal knowledge of all the
great railway stations abroad, his years
of study of transportation development
throughout the world rendering him In
position to Institute comparisons at once
Intelligent and comprehensive. Without
reservation It is his conviction that th
Washington terminal wlll.be tho most inv

ern lights upon passenger demands In ths
Germany's present foremost station, and.
at this time In most respects the greatest
abroad, that at Frankfort, will be relegated
to second rank when the new Hamburg

Paris, the great station at Presden, not to
enumerate others claiming prominence for
vastoess. modern perfection of facilities,
convenience for passengers and Imposing

the same class with the latest American
creation. Perhaps the Hamburg. Frankfort,

strictly ' pertaining to operation, the
measures of which the passenger has no
knowledge, but which, of course, are of
vital Importance to him In Insuring the re
alization of his anticipations both as re
gards his movement and his safety. No
stations anywhere excel those In London
In these respects. In and out of the Liv
erpool Street station that of the Great
Eastern railway, there are almost. If not
quite, double the number of trains dally
of any other In the world upward of 1,100.
Nobody gets hurt, everybody gets there,
and It Is a whirl in every morning and a
swirl out every afternoon that is of the
remarkable sights of London. But the
station, what there Is of it, is as barn
like, cheerless and ramshackly as most
others in London. Dust and dirt would
seem to be at a premium, and advertising
signs, posters and cards thrust themselves
into your face at every turn.
To Bo Marble Palace.
Architecturally, the London stations
make no special pretensions. Many of
those on the continent do; Frankfort, Dres
den, the Orleans at Paris and the new
Hamburg, for instance. Imposing In
appearance, suggestive of - the real
thing, they, as a rule, are not. Facades
with their reliefs, and colonnades with their
statuary, are' all of the same substance,
composition. The development of the sky
scraper here has brought terra cotta, as it
Is termed, literally to the front, and it is
much the same thing as the general sub
stitution for stone, granite and marble
abroad. It hasn't got Into railway station
use on this side as yet, at least, to any ap
preciable extent, and assuredly the Initia
tive will tot bo at Washington. Marble,
wholly unknown on the other side In such
connection, will be the material. Its purs
tone will harmonise as could none other
with the pure classic form and lines of the
structure. Within there will bo marble ga
lore, mahogony, bronse and glass. Nothing
less rich and permanent.
At the best, a structure 760 feet frontage,
with a depth of J0O feet and height of 100
feet, is most difficult of anything approach

three magnificent arches each thirty feet
in width and fifty feet In height opening
into a vestibule with triple domes sixty
odd feet high and thirty-five feet in diam
eter. And, from within the vestibule, a
vista through arches and domes three hun
dred and more feet on either hand. The

Yankee Alarm Clocks and Other
Grades of Tickers Doing; Busi
ness at Home and Abrond.
Like the sound of the shot fired by tho
"embattled farmers" at Lexington, the tick
of the Tankee clock is now "heard round
the world." Our clock export trade Is
worth about 11,000,000 a year. Unfortunately,
Its volume shows no very great Increase
during the last ten years. In 1893 it was
$962,423. In 1902 it shows as 11,146.381, a fall
ing off of $150,000 from the figures of 1901.
The clocks exported are generally of an
Inexpensive class, and $1,000,000 worth
makes quite a little mountain of them. The
extent of their distribution is Indicated by
the report of a single week of August last.
During that week clocks of a total value
of $15,000 were shipped to England, Scot
land, Germany, Spain, Maderla, the Asores,
Cuba, Colombia, Brazil, Argentine, Natal.
India and Newfoundland. Shipments of
other weeks to these and to other lands
show that the cheerful tick of the Yankee
timepiece Is a familiar sound In nearly
every country of the globe. The exasper
atlng shriek of the American alarm clock
breaks the stillness of the morning from
the equator to the frozen pole, and men of
all races, colors and tongues hurl their
anathemas at it in their respective lan
guages, even though they hurl nothing
more weighty.
Our export of watches is close upon the
neeis of the clock trade, and shows an n
crease which gives fair assurance of still
greater Increase. Tho export of watches
in 1893 was valued at $241,758. In 1903 It had
risen to the sum of $998,109.' The fact that
about three-fifths of the watch exports of
1902 went to Canada Is only a fair argu
ment of a very extensive trade awaiting our
cultivation elsewhere. During that year
Canada purchased $575,000 worth of Ameri
can watches. From England, to whom It
gave a preferential tariff rate, Canada
bought during the same year $9,000 worth.
Germany and Switzerland sold on equal
tariff terms with the United States. The
Garman sales were $12,700 and the Swiss
$18.550. Canada bought last year $198,000
worth of American clocks, $8,250 worth of
English clocks and $6,000 worth of French,
chiefly In marble cases, a French specialty.
We quote these Canadian figures because
they exhibit the ability of the American
product to meet the competition which it
bas to face In foreign markets. That which
Is done In Canada can be done elsewhere
by the expenditure of a modicum of trade
energy. The United States can and should
make the timepieces of the world. New
