MOORE AND WHEELER TALK
2loosevelt Professors Deliver First
Addresses in Germany Power
of Public Opinion Theme
, for Californian.
BERLIN. Oct. 30. The Emperor.
Empress and Princess Louise occupied
front seats In the auditorium of Ber
lin University today when Presi
dent Wheeler, of the University of
California, and Professor Moore, of
Harvard, delivered the opening lec
tures of their courses. Each spoke
for half an hour. Seated near
the Imperial party were American Am
bassador Hill. Mrs. Hill, other Ameri
cans and many distinguished Germans.
i Professor Erich Schlldt. rector of Ber
lin University. Introduced the American
Power of Public Opinion.
President 'Wheeler's message from
!the New World was as to the power
of public opinion In the United States,
and as he bey an with the words: "The
j source of all power in the United States
I Is public opinion." there were those
present who saw something dramatic
' in a situation where a Sovereign of one
j ef the most powerful monarchies of
Europe listened with an expresslons of
pleased attentlvcne.ss to the speaker's
.explanation of the transitory character
f any governing machine in the United
States which ceases to correctly Inter
pret the present public opinion.
The Californian said that, nothwith
standtnsr their radical theories, their
fierce spirit exhibited in elections and
their predilections for novelties, Ameri
cans were essentially conservative. He
.was convinced from personal acquaint
ance with William J. Bryan, he said,
that Mr. Bryan would have been con
servative if he had been elected Presi
dent; or that otherwise he would have
been bound hand and foot.
At the mention of Mr. Bryan, there
was a stir in the audience among those
who happened to know that the Em
peror's couuciHors of the Foreign Of
fice had advised his majesty against
giving an audience to Mr. Bryan when
the distinguished American visited Ber
lin In 1907.
Roosevelt Called Conservative.
Following his reference to Mr. Bryan.
President Wheeler turned his attention
ti ex -President Roosevelt, whom he
' also described as conservative in his
Innermost impulses. The latter's capa
city for understanding public opinion
accounted, the speaker said, for - the
great place which he held in the hearts
of the American people.
Professor Moore outlined the course
of lectures which he will deliver on
the function of religious history. He
aid he would treat the subject In a
historical snirit strictly.
At the conclusion of the lectures tlie
Emneror heartily complimented botn
Americans, and with the audience
joined In three cheers nroposed by Rec
tor Schmidt. Mrs. Moore, Mrs. Wheeler
and Miss Eva Sprague, the latter ac
companying Mrs. Wheeler, were pre
sented to the Emperor and the Empress.

FARMER HOLDING HIS OWN
American "Agricultural Products
Show Steady Increase.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 30. In spite of
the declaration that the production of
foodstuffs is not keeping -pace with
the growth of population the Depart
ment of Agriculture has issued a state
ment showing that the United States is
more than holding Its 'own in the task
of feeding its people. The Bureau of
Statistics Is authority for the declara
tion that during the fiscal year the Im
ports of farm products Into the United
States were valued at $50.000,000,
which was $14,000,000 less than in 1906
and fS7.000.000 iess than in 1907.
That the American farmer Is awak
ening to the necessity for closer and
more extensive cultivation of his land
is evidenced by the fact that during
seven years prior to 1900 more than
one-half of the total Imports Into the
country consisted of farm products. In
he nine years since l'.ioo much less
than one-half of the imports have been
products of the farm. (
