iSfiperor Nicholas is said to have ac

Sea-Level Canal.
PARIS. May S. The Academy of Sci
ence today heard a communication from
M. Bunau Varilla, former Panaman mln
lster to the United State?, upon the so
lution of the Panama canal problem by
the new method of combining a lock
canal for the immediate demands of com
mercc and a sea-level waterway for the
ultimate requirements.
The communication says a lock canal
will be sufficient to meet present require
ments, whereas a sea-level waterway
will be necessary only when the traffic
Is three times that of Suez, thirty years
hence. A lock canal ample to meet all
present requirements can be built In four
years. M. Bunau Varllla added that the
trans-it of the canal and the work of
transformation would proceed as inde
pendently as if In different hemispheres.
Transportation would not be obstructed
one minute for the despatch of the dredg
ing material. M. Bunau Varilla ex
plained to the Academy that this double
end would be secured by a special ar
rangement of locks and by employing
Gamboa lake for the deposit of material
dredged from the summit level canal.
The plan had been submitted to Presi

Occasionally They Develop Into Fine
Women, but Not Often.
Emporia (Kan.) Gazette.
Did you over notice a group of little
girls between the ages of 1 and 18
chatting away in a corner? The next
time you sit near such a group listen
and hear if about every tenth word Is
about what "he said." It it is, you have
found some more of the "he said girls,
and they are not the nicest little girls
in the world. The "he said" girls are
likely to loiter down town after school
too late to help their mothers with the
afternoon work. Tney are likely to
wear better clothes than their fathers
can afford, so that the neighbors won
der what their mothers can be thinking
about. The "he said" girls also too
often think more of the boys tnan of
their books, and frequently fall to get
through school. They are in for a good
time, and have nothing in their heads
but hairpins and two-steps.
Sometimes Nature takes a "girl out of
the "ne said" family and makes a fine
woman of her, but generally she gets
to going out to parties and is devel
oped before her time, and either mar
ries and Cades at 20 or hangs on after
all the other girls are married off, and
takes generation after generation of
young boys to raise by hand, and be

There is nothing so sweet as a sim
ple, frank, open-hearted girl. But the
boy-struck girl is an abomination. The
whole matter rests with the girl's
mother. She can either bring up one of
the "he said" girls or she can have a
daughter to be proud of.

Paltcrson Extcls President.
He was followed by Governor Jesse
McDonald, wio spoke on "The State."
and Mayor Robert W. Speer, who re
sponded to "The City." Senator Thomas
M. Patterson then spoke to the toast,
"The President." In opening, ho said:
The few of us who voted for another candi
date at the last election. If not ready to take
on rackcloth and artie?. are at icart willing
to admit that probably the great majority
were wler than the small minority In select
ing the man they did for pmldent.
He then referred in terms of the
highest approval to the announcement
of President Roosevelt on the night
of his election that he would not be a
candidate for re-election, and said:
AVlth tho announcement of his pollle and
unalterable determination to retire to private
life Ht the "end of the coming four years,
Uiose conservatives who had professed to fear
for the future of tho country by reason of the
aggressive methods the President at times
adopted and the popular acclaim with which
they were received, raw the man on horse
back become a . plain citizen on foot, the
crown of a Caesar vanish as an air- nothing
and the scepter of a Napoleon replaced with
a copy of the Constitution as the sign and
measure of the President's rule over his coun
trymen. Such voluntary renunciation of the
IKwer and glory of the greatest office In the
world brought to him the confidence and af
fection of all the people. By that message
h stripped himself of the jrlous Impediment
that had wrecked not a few administrations
and put himself free to perform his full duty
as he aw It to his country. Then he stood
forward as he wm and became to all what
he wanted abov- all to be the President dear
to the hearts of the entire American people
fixed In his purpose to redress the wrongs of
the masses, to compel, the predatory rich to
keep within the limits or the law and to urge
such new laws as were needed to overcome the
Injustice that under existing laws he could
not strike.
He then drew a contrast between the
President's great services toward the
reclamation of the arid Wes't and Dan
iel Webster's denunciation of it as a
worthless desert, and continued:
As the great canals and reservoirs arc cop
structed, as the remnants of the arid, world
old deserts are being made to bloom with
rich dowries of undulating grain ami fruits
and to pulse with grateful life, they will
be a part of his monument, telling posterity
that here Theodore Itoocevelt moved and
He spoke with approval of thfc Presi
dent's opinions on race suicide, his ef
forts to reunite North and South, and.
finally, of the democratic spirit in
which he greeted the people In the
mountain church last Sunday week,
contrasting it with the manners of
European monarchs. He went on:
Inspiration of Mountains.
We feel that the experiences of his outing
have intensified his patriotism and turned his
mind more than ver to the reforms In whkn
he must take the lead or doom them to
present failure. Whether It be to secure a
policy that In dealing with tho grievances
of foreign governments against other Amer
ican governments will remove the constantly
increasing menace to peace from tho Monroe
doctrine while that doctrine ehall be pre
served In all its vigor, or to grapple with the
trusts that ape fattening upon the extor
tions practiced upon the people which they
are helpless to resist and that are overturning
our social and Industrial systems, to replace
them with the degrading condition of feudal
times, or to eccure laws that will Insure fair
rates upon transportation lines and drive out
discriminations against shippers and localities

public trusts and elevate the standard of dim-
owed by man to man and by the citizen to
our common country, we know that he Is gifted
with the moral courage, the Intellectual force
and the physical prowess to wage unceasing

with the help of Cod and the people, to win
the battles and save the country.
At the conclusion of the specchmak
Ing, patriotic airs were played by the
orchestra, the 300 participants in the
banquet singing in chorus. Then all
surrounded the President and escorted
him to his room's In the hotel, where
they shouted "Good night" and cheered
him for several minutes.
Shortly afterward the Prosidont and
- his party were driven to the station
and entered the cars for the night.

train bearing the Presidential party ar
rived at the Union Station in this city
promptly on time. 320 P. M.. and not a
hitch occurred in the arrangements at the
depot. The Chamber of Commerce recep
tion committee, headed by President Tem
ple and Including Governor McDonald and
Mayor Speer. stepped to the rear end of
the President's private car Rocket, ready
to .receive the city's distinguished guest.
Standing on the platform were- Secret
Service Agents Sloan and Tyree and Sec
retary Loeb. Mr. Temple introduced him
self and was allowed to mount the steps,
being followed by the Governor, the May
or and Senators Patterson and Teller.
Almost Immediately President Roosevelt
emerged from the rear door of the car
and grasped Senator Patterson's hand In
a warm greeting. The other members of
the reception committee were quickly In
troduce!, and then the President descend
ed from the car, while the crowd banked
behind cheered lustily. The President was
takon in hand by President Temple, the
Governor and Mayor, and. surrounded
by a squad of local detectives, went
hurriedly through the arched entrance to
the station. As the President stepped
Into the court on the Seventeenth-street
side of the station he became plainly vis
ible lo the multitude held in check on both
sides of the street by the police. A great
cheer rent the air, and the President
doffed lils hat and. bowing, smiled. At the
same time a detachment of United States
Infantry from Port Logan, under com
mand of Major H. L. Bailey and two cav
alry trooos of the Colorado National
Guard, who were standing at attention
inside the large coart, saluted the Presi
dent. The President's carriage was drawn up
to the curbing and he entered with elas
tic step. Almost without orders, the reg
ulars fell Into line and proceeded up Sev
enteenth street, followed by the cavalry
on spirited mounts. Preceding the mili
tary a platoon of mounted police led by
Chief Michael Delarey marched". So per
fect were the police arrangements that the
head of the procession found little neces
sity for active work, and no Interference
was met during the journey of about one
mile to the Brown Palace Hotel. Large
throngs banked the streets and waved
flags and cheered vigorously. The Presi
dent stood up most of the time and bowed
hatlcss to the cheering crowds. He paid
marked attention to the women and chil
dren in the lines, smiling with evident
pleasure at the latter. The buildings
along the line of march were gaily deco
rated In streamers and festoons of trl
colored bunting, flags, shields and pictures
of the Nation's chief.
Arriving at the Brown Palace Hotel at 6
'o'clock, the President was escorted to
apartments on the seventh floor, where he
spent an hour and a quarter with his
secretary. During his presence In the
hotel none but His party and .guests from j
the banquet and Press Club and legiti
mate guests of the hotel were allowed
above the sixth floor.
At 7:15 P. M. he received the members
of the Denver Press Club In his rooms
and was initiated as an honorary member
of the club. A solid gold membership
card, made of Colorado precious metal,
with his name Inscribed thereon as the
first honorary ""member of the club, was
presented to the president. This was ac
cepted In a brief but feeling speech of ap
preciation, and then the President shook
hands with all the members of the club.
A few minutes later the President was
taken in charge by the Chamber of Com
merce members and was made an hono
rary member of that organization. A re

held, and the President then entered the

Bryan Alone, or Presidential Aspir
ants, Keeps Up Lively Clip.
ington. May 8. The year following a
Presidential election Is a dead one po
litically. This year Is no exception to
the rule. The people had cnoug.t of
politics last year to last them until the
Congressional campaign one year
hence, and they can not be aroused at
the present time.
True, there nave been a few slight
ripple on tho calm sea of politics
since the election last November, but
none has reached impressive propor
tions. They one and all died down in u
surprisingly short time.
Immediately after the inauguration
of President Roosevelt several Republi
can lenders, with Presidential aspira
tions, launched their boomlets. but the
attempts proved utter failures. The
Fairbanks boom, the Fprakcr boom, tne
Taft boom, the Shaw boom all died
down after exciting passing Interest.
They may not be absolutely dead: they
may be merely sleeping, but for prac
tical -purposes all Presidential booms
are dead for at least a year or two to
come. Perhaps it Is better to say these
booms have been placed -In cold-storage
for safe keeping.
Then there was a slight Democratic
ripple on Jefferson day. One started in
New York when Judge Parker an
nounced his Interpretation of Jeffer
sonian principles; another and con
flicting ripple started simultaneously
at Chicago, -.when William J. Bryan
made a very different interpretation of
the ideas of J the "father of Democ
racy." These two ripples clashed: the
on? offset the other, and the political
sea again became calm.
The only instance when the people
paused a moment to take Interest in
things political was on the occasion of
the Chicago $Ily election. The declara
tion of that gfeat city in favor of mu
nicipal ownership of street railways
created more .of a sensation, than did
the Presidential booms of various Re
publicans, or the clash between Bryan
and Parker. But even the Interest in
the Chicago election his subsided, and
the people are now awaiting to see
what will come of it.
Politicians have all retired from view
all save one. William J. Bryan Is irre
pressible. He has not tired" of politics:
he Is not discouraged. He alone keeps
on. He appears here and there, always
with some radical idea in line with his
ideas of four and eight years ago, but
even the "peerless leader" fails to
arouse much interest In these dull days.
But he is not dismayed.
Bryan believes the Democratic party.
In face of Its defeat last year, should
reorganize on radical lines; he be
lieves Bryanlsm alone can save it. and
thoroughly believing In himself, he will
not cease in his efforts to bring about
an early reorganization of his party.
But. he " meets, with slight response.
Other Democrats agree that the party
must reorganize, but the rank, and file
of the party hesitate to jump at the
first plan presented. They. have tried
Bryanlsm without success; they have
tried "safe and saiie" Democracy with
loss success; the. next-tlw'e they line up
they want something better. -
Forestry Service Improved Un?

ington. May S. Up to a few months ago
the forestry service, including forest in
spectors, forest superintendents, forest
assistants and forest ranger, were outside
the classified service, and the positions
paying all the way from 1720 to $2000 a
year were prey for Influential politicians.
As was to be expected, many Incompe
tents were loaded onto the government,
and there was much complaint beeausa
of the Inefficiency of the forestry force.
December 17, 1904. the President brought
the forestry service under civil service
protection: soon thereafter Congress
transferred forest reserves to the control
of the Department of Agriculture, and
now Gifford PInchot, chleX of the forestry
bureau, who is actually in charge. Is In
augurating reforms which he believes
will greatly Improve the service In every
The Roosevelt idea of promoting good
men Is being applied, and the higher po
sitions in the forestry service are here
after to be tilled by the promotion of
competent men In the lower positions.
In the new service the positions" will be
graded as follows: Forest supervisor,
J1SO) to $2300 a year: deputy forest super
visor. $1500 to $1700 a year; forest ranger.
$1200 to $1400: deputy forest ranger. $1000
to $1100, and assistant forest ranger, IS00
to $900.
Persons who were in the forestry serv
ice on the date of the president's order
were carried under civil service protec
tion; hereafter all appointments will be
made after examination of applicants and
preference will be given to local men, '
selecting rangers and supervisors, when
practicable, from the states In which they
are to be employed.
2io Invalids Arc Wanted.
Mr. PInchot. in a newly prepared cir
cular, gives an Idea of the kind of men
he wants In his service. Rangers must
be able-bodied men capable of perform
ing bard work. Invalids seeking out-of-door
employment need not apply. Ap
plicants for ranger appointments must be
able to build trails and cabins; must
know something of surveying, estimating
and scaling timber, lumbering and the
live stock business. On some reserves
the ranger must be a specialist in some
of these lines. All must be personally
familiar with the region In which they
sec"k employment.
The examination of applicants Is along
practical lines, and actual demonstra
tion by performance Is required. Expe
rience, not book education, -4s sought, al
though ability to make simple maps and
write Intelligent reports upon ordinary
reserve business Is essential. Although
initial appointment as forest ranger Is
usually to the lowest grade. In cases of
merit service therein may be for a short
probationary period only. But promo
tions will be made only as vacancies oc
cur. Forest rangers will be required to
h-devote their entire time to their public
service and will not be permitted to en
gage in any other employment or occu
pation. Their duties Include - patrol to
prevent Are and trespass, estimating, sur
veying and marking timber, and the su
pervision of cuttings. They Issue minor
permits, build cabins and trails, enforce
grazing restrictions. Investigate claims,
and arrest, for violations of reserve laws.
They are under the Immediate direction
