THE EAST AND THE WEST.
The Xew York Commercial, in an editorial expres
sion commending congress for cutting down the
. appropriation asked for the Lewis and Clark exposi
tion, advances some opinions that are decidedly in
line with those usually expressed by easterners. The
Commercial believes the exposition business is be
ing overdone, and says that, while the Lewis and
Clark expedition was no doubt an important en
terprise, "it is hardly of sufficient significance to
warrant the commemoration of it in the manner pro
posed by the people of Portland." Portland, the
Commercial goes on to say, is a city of "only 90,000
inhabitants, situated in a remote corner of the re
public and out of the usual line of travel." It is a
new city, this New York pillar of knowledge as
sures us, and around it cluster no "historic associa
tions that would justify the holding of the fair, or
entitle the proposal any consideration at the hands
of the national congress.
Presumably we ought to be thankful for the con
cession that the Lewis and Clark expedition was "no
" doubt an important enterprise." It can be readily
understood that the men who, early in the last cen
tury, fought their way through 3000 miles of wil
derness to add to the nation one of its most important
sections of country have no historic interest for the
vastly superior resident of Hoboken ; and it is equally
plain that your effete New Yorker wants nothing of
the great west except its money. It little concerns
those of the Atlantic slope that the Lewis and Clark
expedition was distinctly a government enterprise,
instituted ata time when St. Louis was a village of
a few hundred souls and there were no white habi
tations beyond it. That Captains Lewis and Clark
risked their lives to insure American domination of
the best part of North America and the opening of all
that portion of our country west of the Missouri
river is a circumstance which does not appeal to the
Dutchman whose explorations consisted of a sea
voyage, and whose interest in the actual advancement
of the country ended with his money-making pro
4 pensities. What does it matter that Lewis and Clark
made possible the great west? Why should the con
gress appropriate the enormous sum of $475,000 in
aid of the Lewis and Clark fair when the money goes
to help the people of the Pacific coast ? Who are these
roast people, anyway? Three or four million in
ferior beings who do not own a. foot of property in
New York rank outsiders who are enjoying Ameri
can latitude because of the sufferance of the people
of New York!
For the sake of history we ought to congratulate
ourselves that the New York antipathy for the west
does not dominate congress. Most real Americans
feel pardonable pride in the achievements of their
forefathers. They wish to commemorate those events
in our history which have built up the greatest
nation of the world in 100 years. We are not ready
to confess that residence on the Pacific coast is a
erime, or even a disgrace; in fact, have been proud
our western country. But we will confess, and em
phatically, too, that we are ashamed of that scrub
class of Alleged Americans that entertains so little
regard tor our historic career as to belittle the enter
prise of such an "insignificant" community as a state
ef half a million people. We westerners, who are
proud of New York City because it happens to be
the American metropolis, are wasting our public
spirit, as the protest against the apportionment of
the stupendous sum of $475,000 would tend to con
STOCK IN THE ALEUTIANS.
The possibilities which arc before the Aleutian is
lands in the way of live stock farming is shown, by
the experience of Charles II. Frye, a wholesale butch'
er of this city ,says the Seattle Post-Intelligeueer.
He wintered 9,000 sheep and 500 head of beef cattle
on Kodiak island, and during the season lost 20 per
cent of the animals. The largest percentage of loss,
however, was due to the ravages of wild animals,
principally bears, which a paternal government has
classes as game animals and protected from hunters.
Other losses were largely of a preventable nature,
such for example as winter breeding, responsible for
the death of a number of heifers. The remainder of
the animals came through the winter in fair shape,
subsisting almost entirely on the native grass, as there
was but 500 tons of hay sent north to supplement the
Taking everything into consideration, the showing
is as good as could be made in any of the northern
grazing states. The last winter was exceedingly se
vere all over the northwest and the snow lay on the
ground much later than usual. But much more
severe weather was encountered by stock men in this
state and in Montana than anything ever witnessed
in the Aleutian Islands.,
There is no substantial reason why the Aleutian
islands should not be devoted to the raising of sheep
and horned "cattle on a large scale. Grass grows
luxuriantly on many of the islands; the climate is no
more severe than it is on many of the British isles
the snow fall is light and there are present all of
the requirements for a good grazing country; not
the least of which is the fact that on the mainland
of Alaska there will always be found a market for all
of the meat which can be raised on the islands. There
is certainly enough in the experience of Mr. Frye to
warrant a belief that there is an opening for the
sheep and cattle business in the Aleutian islands out
of all comparison better than can be found elsewhere
in this country now unoccupied.
i, DO WE EAT TOO MUCH f
Many scientific investigators of the average diet
of civilized people long ago arrived at the conclusion
that most people eat too heartily. Professor Chiten-
den of New Haven, after his extensive experiments in
feeding soldiers from the regular army on shedules
carefully thought out and regulated, may be able to
throw some further light upon this important every
day subject of discusion in families. Heads of house
holds in great numbers who find it a difficult task to
meet their bills at the grocers' shops and the markets
may discover reason for rejoicing, provided it is made
indisputably plain that people are really eating too
much. It is to be hoped that among the men of lead
ing and of light in this department of science some
thing like an agreement of opinion may be obtained.
The catastrophe of the battleship Missouri -ty
which five naval officers and twenty-four men lost
their lives, while others were wounded, some fatally,
is the most serious and distressing casual ity that has
occurred since the blowing lip of the Maine in Ha
vana harbor in February, 1898. Since that date the
American navy achieved a complete victory over the
sea power of Spain, practically annihilating both her
Asiatic and Atlantic squadrons with losses on our side
that were insignificant hi comparison with the losses
by the explosion on the Misouri on Wednesday. But
for the overshadowing disaster to the llagship of
the Russian admiral Marakoff which occurred on the
same day, the tragedy enacted on the Missouri would
have caused a world wide expression of horror and
regret. As it is the loss of so many American officers
and men is a matter that concerns our own naval in
terests and comes nearer home than the disaster
which has filled Russia with gloom and corresponding
ly elated their enemies. It would seem that a terri
ble sacrifice of life was made in the effort to reload
and fire one of the great 12-inch guns of the Mis
souri in too great a hurry. Target practice is neces
sary to the discipline and instruction of the men
who man our great battleships. Rapidity in firing
is not essential and the reloading of a hot gun is
fraught with danger which might as well be avoided
Regulations should be made to guard against any pos
sible repetition of such a disaster. The lesson has
been learned at a terrible cost. The sympathy of the
whole nation has been aroused by the terrible dis
aster, for nothing can happen to the brave fellows
in the army or navy without toubhing a tender cord
in every patriotic breast.
