it had a total output of 43,27M83 abort

waa 41,470,433 abort ton. The lo of

It remained for Prof. Edmund J.

In savor of tha ettabliihment of a na
tional unlveraity here la Wellington.
In a letter- lauding tbo ambition of
George Waahlngton Unlveraity to fill
that poiltlon Dr. Jame aayai
"Such a unlveraity, located In the
Federal capital, could do many thing
for Amerlca.11 higher education which
no other Inatitutlon in any other loca
tion could accomplish. Another great
advantage of, inch a (obool a thi, lo
cated In the capital, would be Its pow
erful Influence on Cjongrea a 1 whole
in the direction of the acientlflo treat
ment of all political and economic prin
ciple. Such a school, with faculty
consisting of able experts in all the dif
ferent line of government policy and
admlnUtratloni would Inevitably exert
an Immediate and helpful Influence up
on the country and upon tho attitude
df our Congrcwmon and our govern
ment aa a whole." '
Thla view, ha never been taken be

providing, lu reality, an invaluable
clnaaroom In which 'the student of the

study political soience at flrt hand.

President in his den and told him that
he was In complete sympathy , with
Representatives Prince amd Chapman,
of Illinois, both of whom had declared
previously that the III nols , delegation
to the convention would vote ns a uni
ty for Speaker Cannon from beginning
to end, Senator Cullom believes that
"Uncle Joe" would be the most appro
priate successor the President oould have
and think that the movement to put
him at the head of the ticket next year
is gaining ground steadily.

Four Out of Five Passed State Examina
tion; of Thus Who War Rot
Student, Only On in Six Passed.
The great work that th International
Correspondence : School, of Scranton,
I'a., are doing wa never demonstrated
more forcibly than it waa whan 89 can
didate for th position of Or boss
presented themselves to take the State
examination before th State Mine In
spector at Unlontown, Pa.
Nineteen of the candidate were I. C.
S. Student! fifty were not. The prac
tical experience of all averaged about
the same, and all bad equal opportunity
to pas th examination. The mult
wa a tlgnal triumph for the I. C 8.
ytm of training by mail. The 60
candidate that were not student of
the achool averaged only 64.7 per cent
In the examination only seven patted j
forty-three failed. The nineteen I. C
S. student averaged 781 per cent 15
passed; only four failed.
Th examination shows that tbe man
who ba th forealght to Invest a few
dollar and a little spar time in an
L C. S. Course of special training bat
nearly six times the chance to pass tbe
examination as tbe one that lack such
preparation; that the chance? that an
ICS. student will succeed are fourj
w one, wnue me cm nee tnat a non
student will fall are tlx to one.
The foregoing i simply one of a thou
sand Instances where I. C. 8, students
have triumphed in examinations, In
promotions, etc Such success is easily
accounted for," when It Is remembered
that these schools have had nearly 18
years of experience in teaching by mail
and have expended the great sum of
one million dollar In the preparation of
home-study textbook, which are so easy
to understand and to apply that any
man able to read and write can succeed,
provided he has little ambition.

Shortage of Enlisted Men Causes Change

NEW YORK. May 25.-Bcause of
the shortage otf enlisted men and the
lownesa with which recruit are being
gathered in the daily dress parade,
which had been a great feature of army
life on Governor's Island, has been
abandoned. There are 49 garrisons in
the Department of the East which in
clude the district east of Ohio and
North of North Carolina, which is
commanded by General Grant from
headquarters at Governor' Island. The
normal strength of this department
should be 10,702 men, but there is at
present a shortage of 2000 men. t

NKW YORK, May 2S-Tbe two moat
famous fighting men of the world, Ad
miral Dewey and General Kurokl link
ed arm this week at the great banquet
given to tbe Japanese visitor at the
Hotel Astor. That meeting and the
banquet are likely to go down In diplo
matic history not only on aceouut of
the importance of the guAt b-it because
the affair possessed greater signifi
cance far greater than might appear on
the surface. The administration at
Washington, It is known, bat all along
been anxious for a proper understanding!
of the really cordial relations existing
between Japan and thi country and
baa been desirous of Its publi-t demon
tratlon as a proof of the obliteration
of all feeling over the California troub-
le in which President Roosevelt too'i
such a prominent part. General Kuro-
ki bad planned to return directly to,
Japan from tbe Jamestown Exposition
without taking part In uy publio dem-.
onstration. The opportunty," however,'
wa too good to be lost, and somehow j
from high aourcee things were started
moving. A committee was organ! red
significant in its composition. Not only
did it number men who had been prom
inently connected with tbe political life
of the present administration, such as
Paul Morton, Cornelius Bliss and Seth
Low, but also E. 8. A. de Lima and
other who are laboring to extend the
foreign commerce of the United States
and to eliminate adverse, influences.
Just how thi committee worked is not
known but as a result of its efforts
General Kuroki changed hla plana and
came to New York to take part in a
friendly demonstration of the relations
existing between the two countries
which may well live in International
history baa th visit of Commodore
Perry to Japan "half a century ago.
The people of New York helped along
the movement by giving the men of
the visiting fleet a glorious time during
their stay ashore.
There is probably no other estate in
New York about which it would be so
difficult to secure exact information as
that with which Trinity Church was
endowed by good Queen Anne 202 years
ago. The very vague statement recent
ly put forth by it rector concerning
the income of the parish, gtimuhtted the
inquiry df one of the title guarantee
companies a to how long it would take
to niake a list of the various parcels of
rt-al estate held by Trinity and what
such a list would cost, elieithg the in
lormaiion mat 11 would be necessary
to search the public records for three
centurie past, and that the cost of the
investigation would not be Ie than
$1,000. One of the chief difficulties in
the way of finding out how much of the
famous old "Bowerie" of Anncke Jane
is now the property cat "Mre. Trim as
the corporation wa styled in a para
ble written fn its defense more than a
century ago, lies in the fact that a
large portion of her holding are leased
for long periods to others, under whose
names they appear on the Tax Assess
or's books. Fifty year ago, when Trin
ity wag investigated by a committee of
the State Senate, it appeared that orig
inally the mother of Protestant church
es in New York owned 2,008 lots, of
which 318 had been, given away and 691
remained. The other 1059. it wa in
ferred, hnd been sold. This report Is
the only full one made since 1814, when
the present policy of keeping the finan
cial affairs oif the corporation a secret
was adopted. With this report for a
basis, however, and some-shrewd com
putations of the present value of the
una!sessed property therein listed,
Trinity' wealth in real estate has been
estimated at $30,308,100. The famous
brown structure which frowns unheeded
upon the Mammon worshippers of Wall
Street is assessed at $115,500; but the
sit which it tccupies and the cemetery
surrounding it ia one of tho choicest
piece of New York real estate, being
valued at no less than $17,000,000.
When "Silent" Smith, the most ec
centric of New York's multi-million
aires, purchased the sumptuous palace
at the corner of Sixty-eighth stireet
prosiacally known as 871 Fifth. Avenue,

with his accustomed brevity orf speech

There ar now seven of these

for a musical entertainment wbicb tho

hired for these concert number few
than 14 pieces and some of them include
23. At each of the eight piers these

112 concert each, or nearly a thousand
