If they believed they rould do s. By

force the weaker states to accept scherl

words, thny would force through a bill
which wnuld not materially affect the
tariff on oil. steel, coal. Iron and sugar,
and make reductions in the tariff on
lumber, wool and other raw materials
which supply the factories of the at.
But the ver right of nnlimitcd speech
In the Senate will prevent the canying
out of any nu'h programme, and the
know ledc of this fact will deter Mr.

the Western Senators would have no

THE BOOK OF GENESIS
A Modern Critical View of the Ori
gin of Its Karly Traditions.
Indon Saturday Review.
Understood in the light of modern
knowledge, the early traditions of Gene
sis, so far from hing emptied of a present
day application. sem to gain fresh worth,
ly.-gends and myths we are bound to call
them: and as the terms are apt to raise
suspicions. It Is. well to make clear what
we mean. Lrt It be safd at once that
legends and myths are neither frauds nor
conscious literary inventions. Behind the
letend lies a background of historical
fact, behind the myth an attempt to find
an answer to the inevitable questions
raised by the mysteries of life. Both con
tain an idnl element created by the Im
agination, and both are worthy of the rev
erence which Is due to the sincere efforts
of the human mind at the primitive stage.
Tt has now become almost a commonplace
to say that the early traditions of Israel
do not stand by themselves; they belong
to a clas of kindred stories and miut he
examined on the comparative principle.
The principle, however, requires caution

the secrets. On! school traces everything
to Babylonia, another forces an astral
theory through the text.
Dr. Gordon, of Montreal. In his hook on
'The Karly Traditions of Genesis." uses
the maieriiil with more discrimination: he
rvcoftniz.-s several source as contributing
to the Israelite traditions, and suggests
that the author of the Jehovist document
had before lilm an earlier narrative round
which he cathered his stories. Some of
them are of desert origin, reminiscent of
the days when thet Hebrew tribes hail
their home In Arabia, others are obvious
ly Babylon, others a;ain seem to be col
ored by Canaanlte associations. Of course,
the connection with Babylonian traditions
Is the moet marked, but it varlc-s curious
ly in degree. iTor example, of the two
documents which narrate the legend of
the flood, one adheres to the general out
line of the Babyloniun original, while the
other shows a closer acquaintance with
the details. The influence of Babylon was
thus neither continuous nor exclusive.
I'rohably the Hebrew tribes first became
familiar with the Babylonian legends
somewhere about the fifteenth century
"B. I'., when the civilization of ancient
Babylon was dominant in Palestine. The
next stage would be that which Is marked
by the advance of Assyria into the west
In the days of Ahax and Isaiah: finally at
the period of the exile t 19 Jews came to
close iiarters with local traditions on
the shores of the Kuphrates. But while
the traces of lorrowlng are more or less
distinct, we mark the presence of another
clement, which is native and owes noth
ing to outside intluence.
Over against the fantastic, immoral,
polytheism of the Babylon epics stands
the grave, moral monotheism of the Book
of Genesis. The old traditions have been
purged by Israel's relVsious and moral
ideals, and without a doubt these .ad
their foundation In the conception of God
which we find In Israel and nowhere else.
Certain fundamentals of religion. Indeed,
such as the belief that man Is capable of
fellowship with God and that the universe
had its origin in the divine will, are com
mon to mm; of the hlgner religions; pe
culiar to Israel Is the conception of Jah
veh as an ethical personality, a God of
righteousness; and this belief In the in
flexibly moral character of the national
God determined the whole course of Is
rael's religious life and secured from the
rtrst its survival and expansion. It was In
evitable that as time went on the God of
Israel should come to be regarded as the
only true God. The full creed did not re
ceive expression till a later day; but Pro
fessor Gordon adopts the opinion which
is steadily gaining ground, that the
germs of a pure monotheism were already
present in the religion taught by Moses.

E CUT WAY OUT
TWEXTY-OXE ESCAPE FROM
Celestials Saw Their Way to Liberty
Through AVire Cage and Slide
SAX FRAXCISCO. Xov. 29. Twenty-one
out of 116 Chinese held at the Pacific Mail
dock, pending the decision of the Immi
gration officials as to whether or not they
were entitled to enter the United States,
escaped from the detention shed at Sec
ond and Brannan streets about 12 o'clock
last night. Four of them were recaptured
in Chinatown today and returned to the
shed. Immigration officials, the local po
lice and the officers of th.6 Pacific Mail
Steamship Company are prosecuting a
vigorous search for the others.
The Orientals cut the heavy wire net
tint? over one of the windows, sawed
through two Iron bars and slid down a
water pipe. A nightwatchman discovered
the open window a few minutes after the
Chinese had "landed" without the ap
proval of the Immigration authorities.
This Is the second time that Chinese
have escaped from the rickety old deten
tion shed. Last September 11, four of
them awaiting deportation, sawed their
way to liberty through the roof. Sensa
tional charges made at the time by a
petty officer of the liner Mongolia that
Chinese were being landed by the process
of substitution, led to an investigation
recently, which, however, did not disclose
anything tending to support the charges.
The question was brought up during the
investigation as to who was actually re
sponsible for the safekeeping of the Chi
nese pending the determination of their
right to land, the local immigration au
thorities or the Pacific Mail- Steamship
Company. Each asserted that the re
sponsibility rested upon the other and the
question has not yet been determined.
Last night's escape. It Is believed, will
result in another and more rigid inquiry
Into conditions at the detention shed which
makes possible the escape of Chinese held

PORTLAND, MAIKE, CHILD
111, Weak and Emaciated, Re
stored to Health, by Vinol
"Our little daughter, six years of age,
after a severe attack of the measles,
whirh developed into pneumonia, was
left pitifully thin, weak and emaciat
ed. She had no appetite, and her stom
ach was so weak It could not retain
food. She- lay in this condition for
weeks, and nothing the doctor pre
scribed did a bit of good, and we were
beginning to think she would never re
cover. "Xt this time we commenced to give
her Vinol, and the effect, was marvel
ous. The doctor was amazed at her
progress, and when we told him we
were giving her Vinol, he replied, 'It
I. a fine remedy, keep it up.' We did
so, and she recovered her health .and
Btrength months before the 'doctor
thought she could." J. W. Flagg,
Vinol cures conditions like this be
cause in a natural manner' it increases
the appetite, tones up the digestive
organs, makes rich,' red blood, and
strengthens every organ in the body.
