- THE BRITISH "ALPHONSE.":
f A. :.-;;:-,:, r - ' V '. -
We Americans have been laboring
under the delusion for the past twelve
months op more, that sooner or later
we would have to get in and drub the
sturdy little Jap into condition of
rationality and take the. stuck-up kinks
out of his doughty little backbone, ac
quired from his conquest of the Russians;
but is seems we have but been playing
the .American "Gaston" to the "Al
phonse" of our dear British cousin.
The rumpus kicked up over in Van
couver, B, C where a mob of 3000 rough
handed Englishmen nwn-hanled all the
Jpps and Chinks they could reach in
the course of a single day and. especial
ly a group of 500 newly arrived immi
giant Japs, including a couple of their
consular officers and a distinguished
member of the Mikado's, cabinet, trans
poses the initiative and the burden of
accounting, to the mighty shoulders of
John Bull, than whom no one on Earth
i better able to handle the job. That
our bully old cousin has our sympathy
and unirersal good-will, goes without
saying; and we hope he will settle the
business once for all as far as convinc
ing the "little Brown Man" of his exact
ktitude and license on white man's soil,
is concerned. ' 1
And if ito be we are drawn into the
mess by reason of our juxtaposition,
and harmony of sentiment, we will en
deavor to enlighten the bumptious new
pupil in international comity end west
ern politics, that ' two war "rods in
pickle" are wore than staying at home
in the quiet pursuit of "those things to
which God had called him," as the old
Catechism has it. The Jap is strictly up
against it; and it is certainly his hour
to renig and find his true level, and what
is more, keep it! V
HEARST AND HARRIMAM.
, The news is abroad that Hearst and
Harriman have made a compact, to con
duct a campaign next year, wherein the
right of riches to rule will be the cardi
nal principle; and the general purpose of
which will be to re-establish the su
premacy of wealth over all other doc
trines, for that is the length to which
all such dogmas go.
Hearst took occasion, at Jamestown,
recently, to announce his new precept
and launch his advocacy of it, to the
dismayed astonishment of his really
great following; and when he did it, he
calmly threw off the mask of years and
went deliberately back to the class he
really stands for, and made plain the
pose he has assumed through his papers.
It need not surprise anyone out here;
he is known as one of. the richest of
the rich and bred and bom to the code
and customs of the rich. But his raw
candor will do him infinite harm and
shatter his political ambition -forever.
The people that have given him their
loyal, even ardent, support through all
the years he has preached the gospel of
the commonalty and the dogma and
dogma of equality, will turn from him
in a whirl of disgust, with only un
belief and (corn for any creed he may
For years he has been one of the most
democratic of leaders and has been ex
traordinarily successful in making good
the falsity of his position, and the only
credit that falls to him in the new and
radical deal he has made, is that he has
not sneaked his way into it, but has
been there heart and soul all the time.
He is not bluffing this time. He is in
his own fold and will sing its song to
the end. But it is a swan's song, for
hliff. ' '

CHANCE OF ARREST.
Teddy Roosevelt, Jr. is Hunting With
out a License and Deputy is on Trail.
MIXXEAPOLIS, Minn., Sept. 9. A.
K. Rutledge, deputy game warden at
Bemidji, has been instructed to go to
Colraine and arrest Teddy Roosevelt Jr.
for hunting in Minnesota without the
license required by law of a foreign resi
dent. It is the result of Captain Green-
way, of Duluth, formerly in command of
the "Rough Riders," inviting Teddy Jr.
to take a hunting trip on his private
property near Colraine. The game and
fish commission at the capital say the in
vitation was accepted and that the two
are already on the hunting grounds.
The matter was called to the atten
tion of Samuel J. Fullerton, superintend
ent of fish hatcheries. Fullerton called
Greenway up on long distance telephone
and explained matters. The law re
quires non-resident licenses to be taken
out with the commission through its
officers at the capital.
Not only was no license issued for
young Roosevelt, but there was not even
an application on hand.
The law must be enforced against ft
president's son as well as against any
other offender, was the ruling of Mr.
Avery, the executive agent, and he at
once instructed Deputy Warden Rut

brought into contact with Mother Xa

A FAMOUS "BOY SPECIALIST"
Superintendent Charles D. Hilles of the
New York Juvenile Asylum, a Leader
in Reformatory Methods,
those who have him in charge. Time was
when it was thought that any ruffian
wag fit to be the keeper of juvenile of
fender? but happily better counsel now
prevai and it is recognized that special
knowledge and training are required in
dealing with the boys if the work of re
form is to succeed, Such knowledge"
and experience are needed to gain the
confidence of the typical street boy at
the start. If any one doubts this, it
would be made clear to him should he
attempt to learn anything at first about
one of the army of Xew York gamins
who have been called the "princes of the
The novice is immediately "up against
it," as the boy himself puts it, since only
the merest baby of the slum, too young
to talk intelligently, i unable to "size
up" the stranger. Older children are so
"wise" that they instantly discern lack
of experience on the part of the ques
tioner with disastrous results to him.
Suppose j that, with a desire to show
kindness and sympathy, you should ask
'How old are you, little boy?" or "Do
you go to school?" of some precocious in
fant of seven engaged in the paper vend
ing business. The imp, covered with a
degree of accumulated dirt which, caused
Owen Wister to exclaim of a London
street boy on similar occasion, "How
is it possible in the short span of seven
years?" very likely would answer your
inquiry -with Aw, go on you Joisey,
watcher tink I am?"
But the novice should not feel the re
buff too ' keenly because even, in the
presence of the one he calls the "wise
guy," the man who knows all about the
street boy and the way to hi heart,
the gamin is not abashed, though to be
sure his impertinence is then a mark of
favor rather A than derision. A little
story in point in that told by Charles
D, Hilles, superintendent of the New
Ybrk Juvenile Asylum, who devotes all
his time and energy to . saving street I
boys from shipwreck upon the rocks of
crime everywhere present, in the slum
life of the greater cities. Each boy
sent, to the Children's , Village of the
Asylum is taken before Mr. Hilles to
be questioned as a means Of learning his
Individual traits and as a method of
establishing amicable relations. This par
ticular boy had come into collision with
the law upon numerous occasions -but

Children's VilLige he was called Into the
superintendent's office in no very ami

persuasive questions he answered only

had almost despaired of making a friend
of him. ,

continued with a suspicious quiver about
his lips, "I won't never see 'em again."
"How would you like to have them

"Aw, stop your kiddin," came the
surlv reply, and then as an afterthought
and altogether incredulously, "do you

"Yes, I mean it."

bond of friendship between the special

therto, had felt, that every man's haul
