There is a Mexican Carnegia, who be
lieves he ought not to die a millionaire.
He is Pedro Alvarado, a young mine
owner, who has just given $10,000,000
to give homes to the poor and schools to
their children. He ajso proposes to pay
the national debt. May the example of
hese tw man spread!
So far as it has been figured op at Tok
yo, the total money cost of the war with
Russia amounts to $1,100,000,000. This
does not include the interest on the war
debt to be paid hereafter. It cost Great
Britain little, if any. less than that to con
quer the small Boer republics of South
Africa -some $700,000.000' being added
to the principal of England's public debt
alone. Little less amazing than Japan's
overwhelming of Russian power in East
ern Asia is the comparative smallness of
the money cost.
A German expert, for the purpose of
creating sentiment in favor of an enlarged
navy, adds up the tonnage of the several
national navies, and he finds thdt Ger
many stands fourth, and behind the
United States. First comes England,
with 56 battleships built since 1882, and
67 large cruisers; then France, with 26
and 20 severally; then Germany, with 19
and 12. but with a cons derably smaller
aggregate tonnage; and after these four
come Japan and Italy. To his view the
fact that the three largest navies belong
to the three nations that are most closely
allied gives the assurance of peace to the

Ti, ia'.'.iili vi rrndum is the
most important ''.-.ext step" in political re
form in this country. Its advent ought to
do wonders in breaking up corrupt polit
ical machines and preventing the passage
of vicious legislation, and under it, real
leaders af the people will find it easy to
arise oa real issues. The movement has
not yet attracted the popular attention it
deserves, yet it is quietly being extended
all over the United States, especially in
the West. In the recenk elections, Mass
achusetts, Maine, Deleware, Montana and
Oklahoma, following the previous lead of
Oregon, South Dakota, Illinois, Ohio, Utah
and Texas, voted for soma form of the
initiative and referendum, or 'sa elected
a majority in their legislasure pledged to
such a system, while it is said that 1 04
members of the neat House of Congress
are also pledged. The N. Y. Indepeneent.

While there is a feeling quite genera
throughout the country, that sooner or
later the United States and Japan will
engage in war, it is not expected at this
time. The idea of war between these '
two countries is based ujhjn the presumed
knowledge that Japan would attempt to
secure the Philippines in this manner.
that owing to the facttht her base would
be nearer the Philippines than nurs. she
might be successful. Tnat is a debate-
