Among . them is pre sented the curious figure of -John Taylor, whose picturesque and terrible character might well furnish a hint for a modern Sir Walter Scott,, if we were fortunate enough to possess a successor to the great novelist: John Taylor waa only a . sojourner . In Arkansas from 1837 to 1844, but he was so remarkable a man that tie' should not be forgotten. -. Everybody who heard him agreed that In cupaclty for Invective, for withering, blustering, envenomed elo quence he excelled, hny human being that ever sfklte, ' and that he seemed posseiised of a demoniac power. He waa' a( tall, iank. red-naired man, repuhtrvejy ugly, with little green eyes that jglistened Hko those of a snakev and with a fashion of licking out tils tongue that waa strangely terpentine.

Letter from President Roosevelt. - The following letter from President Roosevelt wss read: ' White House, Oct. 17. 1908. Gentlemen: It Is with sincere regret that 1 find myaeir unable to accept your invitation. If I could leave Washington for any such pur- Bose it would be to attend your banquet, ut congress ineeta In special session, No vemlier V and it will then be a hard quest tlon -for ma to get awuy. The Chamber of Commerce of the state of New York occu pies a unique position. It is distinguished not only by Its long history and by the vast importance of the business Interests which It represents, but slso for the hiirh type f public and business morality which It represents. I nay you no Idle compli ment. Tha record of the men you have chosen as presidents; the record of the cause with which the Chamber of Com merce has been identified, and, above all, the standard of business integrity which the Chamber of Commerce has consistently represented and which It haa determined among those; for whom it has in any way stood sponsor, -shows the truth of What I say. ...... Bouquets for Chamber. It is surely necessary to add that no body of men can render a greater service, not onlv to the American bunihess world, but to the American body politic than has thus been rendered by the Chamber of Commerce. The true Ideal of this country Is that hand in hand with Its material de velopment there- shall go a high and fine sense of responsibility to the public on the part of those whose power and ability en able them to take the lead In this develop ment. It Is the good fortune not only of the state of New York but of all our peo ple, that we can conscientiously say of the Chamber of Commerce that, among' Its members, we have found to an unusually high degree this combination of great busi ness ability with the spirit which practices and .demands integrity in public and pri vate afTalrs alike. I congratulate ycat upon this banquet en the one hundred and thirty-fifth unnivor earyvf tbe Chamber's- foundation, and I profoundly regret my inability to be prea ent with-vou. -Sincerely yours,' TIlpO DORU ROOSEVELT, - - ? :-- ,Afier the; toasts "The.

He said; Tiie only unprotected American industry, Is Its merchant marine.

The secretary pointed out. that, by acts of congress and through, government en couragement this country has . the best railway ystem. In. existence,, , aud . the cheapest' .-ates;. its factories turn out more manufactured products than any two. countries on the map by more than, $3,000,-, 000,060,000 per -annum; its agricultural In terests art more valuable than . those of any other country, , and its inlnpral. output haa passed the $1,000,000,000 line. The secre tary continued: Without attempting to give the reasoi.s therefor, I content myself with stating tbe fact that fortv years am we had only one- fourth as much foreign commerce to trans port as we have now, yet we actually car- nea in American ooiioms roriy years ago, three times as much foreign commerce aa We carry today. These conditions may be Satisfactory to you. They teem to be satis factory to many; nut tney are not sDtis facory to me. I am not ignorant of the argument that If foreign countries are willing to subsidize ships to carry our frelaht It Inures to our advantage. This might be a sufficient excuse for our supine excuse If there were no other consideration Involved than merely carrying our freight across the Atlantic ocean In times of peace. Unfortunately, however, there are many other and weightier considerations. Helpless la Time ef War. If wsr were to be declared between any two of the great powers of Europe, our foreign commerce would not only te neip less but hooelees. I forbear reference to our military and navul condition In the ab sence of available colliers and transports. were the United Btates to be Involved In uch a conflict. The urouriest navy In the world is utterly worthless without coal. As certain ts the world revolves tne time will oorae when our people will give more heed to securing a respectable there of the trade of the South American re publics, - South Africa, the Islands south of the equator and the countries waahed by the Pacific ocean. Suppose we now haft regular lines of steamship communication between our Dorts and the countries 1 have mentioned, the government paying the loss until our trade should be estaDiisiien. What would be the result? A representa tive of these lines would wait at the door Of every factory in the land begging for the production or goods, specially ae lirned tn meet the Decullar needs, desires and whims of the country for which they were Intended. And. mark you. gentlemen. foreign market for n,ooo,ioo manu factured products means a domestic mar ket for at least $800.0uu of labor, - World's Connie Commercial, Nor wduld this be all. Tha establishment of trade in these Countries would be fol lowed by American warehouses, the Ameri can branch omce and the American banks. The conflict between the great powers or the world Is no longer military, but com mercial. Europe la not seeking to estab lish naval stations in the direction I have Indicated, but it has already estab lished commercial' stations there and out ot these are name to arise complication! fullv as intricate and vastly more delicate, Vm-tunatelv tha Venezuelan matter la be ing settled by arbitration. God grant that all difficulties of this character that may hereafter arise on the western hemisphere may be aolved In the rr.e way. If we hud our share of commerce to the south and west of us. Instead of a paltry 11) ner cent, we would be in a poxltlun to Insist that thev would be so settled. I am not contending for ship subsidies If any more feasible course can do ae vised, but. If ship subsidies will insure us a merchant marine, then 1 am fu shin aubsidlea. If some other measure will insure a merchant marine then I am fur some other measure, If several measures II Nam Dayt OS) avary Always R4mr tb Ful I sxatlve Uromo f s r n g.

Senator Allison, In responding td the toast, "The Senate of the United States," explained the work of the senate. When he, said that-he agreed with the secretary of the treasury that all disputes should be settled by arbitration, the banquet ball rang with appaluse. . Bishop Doane of AJinny, In speaking on "Capital and Labor," took the position that capitalists are laboring men. The bishop wss hesrtlly applauded when he said he believed that Dewttt Clinton was a harder worker than any man who dug In his Canal. Rev.. Dr. Donald Mackay, in his address, said "the trust Is the greatest peril of the commercial imagination today, because It Is falling Into our national mistake of con fusing quantity with quality and exalting bigness-over greatness.

PANAMA'S PROUD DAY (Continued from First Page.) property to the United States, it la pointed out at the State department that no such cancellation can, be effected without a breach of contract that, would not be tol erated by either' the French government or the government of the United States. The nature of the engagement between the United Stares government and the Panama Canal .company It (a said, has changed somewhat since the original undertaking arrived at by Attorney General Knox. He secured an undertaking from the canal company to. sell Its property to the United States'for 840.000,000., the option to expire March 4, Thia option expired with out attracting much attention, but , the State department meanwhile quietly had secured a new agreement which Is In fact in the eyes of the law officers a complete contract by the terms of which the canal company agreed to sell Its property to the United States for the figure named on the conclusion'of the canal treaty. The state department holds .that, this agreement Is aiive. The training ship Prairie carrying a battalion of marines arrived at' Ouantan amo yesterday.

VTalk about $'o'u'r '"optical Illusions Induced by hypnotic 'Influence,'' said an pld trav eler, "an experience which" I' had In India some .ftlmcy ago served to show me what a tremendous Influence one mind has over another, and also gave me a clue as to the manner In which 'the native magicians are enabled to deceive their audiences in the performance of flieir seemingly marvelous tricks. I was wlrh a party of friends; we veTe four, counting myself, and were put ting, up for the night In a native bungalow, after having traveled the greater part of the day over a wide desert. We were assembled on the plazsa In the cool of the evening, while on all sides of the little oasis,' with Its solitary hut and few trees, ' stretched the wide expanse of sand. It was just twilight when a native juggler appeared and inquired if wt wanted to see bis exhibition We gladly assented. as any diversion was welcome. He began his preparations by. spreading a linen sack upon the ground.1 Near this was a basket of considerable: tlxe,' but we never learned what It countalned... All our party were present except one, who waa inside the bungalow .when ha began. .. "With great solemnity the magician sa laamed three times, at the 'same time in toning a hymn. Tha trick, at he Informed us, consisted 'in vivisecting a boy, placing him In the bag and bringing him out alive. The thing was almost Incredulous, but It was done to all appearances. - We sat there and watched him aa with great dexterity he proceeded-to chop up his victim. First the head, then arms, then limbs; until there remained only the trunk. These be placed together In the bag. which he tied. He mumbled come words in Hindu and passed his wand over the bag. In a few moments more the child was standing before us, smiling, without a scratch. The necroman cer salaamed, and before wt knew it was gone. "We tat there scarcely believing what we had aeen, and were recalled to ourselves by our friend asking us what was the mat ter. We told him what we had Just wit nessed. lie laughingly remarked that ha happened to see the trick from the window. He said he saw nothing but a melon cut up. This he saw the magician place In the tuck. The boy, he' said, was hidden In the basket. To my mind tba mystery Was ex plained. The sorcerer had hypnotised us, Wt saw Just what he wanted ua to see. It was tho only explanation of the Impossible, feat, for wt would have aworn that wo taw the boy and not tha melon cut up be fore our 'very eyes." New Orleana Timet Democrat.

The money went at far as Sanger by tha express company, and was there called for by John Price, manager of the stage lint' to Millwood. Price put tbe sack of coin in a valise and carried it to the stage of&oe, putting it In a locker for safe keep. Ing. ..) In the morning the ataga driver put ths valise aboard without looking into It and delivered It to Harrigan at the hotel In' the evening. When Harrigan opened It ht found it contained not hit money, but a brick wrapped up In a twlna sack. The weight was almost equal to that of tht tack of coin. The , supposition Is that somebody who knew that the money was In the stage office entered it with a skeleton key and substituted the brick fur money. nan Francisco Chronicle.

" . -n 'At "the Dtitidrum petty'sesston's "court in Dublin County nine respectable ydung men were cnargen recently with "unlawfully as sembling together to disturb the peace." A policeman swore that they alt repeatedly threw volleys of atones at him. On cross examination he admitted that alT the time of the stone throwing the young men were only ten yards away from him and non of the atones hit him. l- The charge behind the charge was that the young men attended a Gaelic class where they met -"feloniously to learn"- the language of their forebears. Counsel for the defense offered to product witnesses who would clearly establish tht Innocence of the young men. But the prose cution objected to any evidence for the de fense, on the ground that, under the act of Edward III, the defendant! were not tn tltled to It. The court sustained the ob jection and the young men were convicted. ut here is a case less serious and mora novel, reported In the Dublin Freeman by tta correspondent all the way down in "Droll Donegal."

In the evenings nearly all tht sports In Donegal came to sea the "fine Amerlkln gintleman" In his villa in Ballyweel. He had entirely too many friends and his doctor told him that If ha did not cut down the number the ahadea of the long-departed Irish snakes would all appear to him. But Mc Groary waa a nan of resources and he knew how to dodge snakes. So he decided to go to the poor house, and thither be went, sure enough, in a carriage and pair, The master of the establishment wss flab bergasted, but Mr. McGroary's persuasive powers soon softened him. So he allowed tho gentleman to have a room "a II to him aelf." "Now," said McGroary, "here at last : win have peace. If them blokes want to see me they will have to hunt me up in tht poor house." The master tent for the legal adviser of the Board of Guardians and explulned the case to him. The learned gentleman .was puzcled. In valu he searched through, all the musty statutes. He could And no law to keep rich people out of the poor house. Ht advlaed tht master to bring tht matter before the board at the next regular meet Ing. In a few daya tht board assembled in all Its accustomed solemnity. ' "After the transaction of the usual rou tine business" to borrow from tha local re porters the master rose and appeared to be in great embarrassment.
