TRIED TO KILL
Revengeful Neighoori Threaten Life
of Gladisse Murder Witness.
Andrew Jackson (colored), known in
the Whitechapel district as the "'Spy," on
account of his connection with the Glad
issee murder case, which resulted in the
sending of (Uadissce to prison for 15
years, received a warm reception In that
community on New Year's Eve. It ap
pears that sentiment in that locality is
stronp against Juckson, because It was
his testimony that was instrumental in
convicting Gladls-iee. This feeling crys
tallized Wednesday evening when Charles
Appleton. alias "Kansilfs," met Jackson
and fired a few shots at him. Jackson
got his revolver and started out to perfor
ate Appleton's anatomy.. On his way to
commit murder Jackson encountered Po
liceman Huberts, who took his pistol
from him ami escorted him to the sta
tion hefuse. Later he was released, but
upon returning to his old haunts, became
eugaed In bloody conflict with Jerry Wil
liams, one of his time-honored friends.
Again the police got him and Williams
ami now theyare In jail. Jackson says
that he fear his neighbors will some day
kill him. "

We see every day proofs of the suc

PBOBX.ZM Or THE TQU OIL CAH.
(New York Commercial.)
Prices for Illuminating oils tk-ivie reach
ed a high level, said to be unprecedented
In the history of the business. Pennsyl
vania (-rude oil touched $1.j1 per barrel
toward the closing of last week, and the
latest quotation for It Is around $1 ;i2. The
prices for the refined product have, of
course, advanced proportionately with
those.of the crude, and inasmuch as the
Standard Oil Company of New Jersey ?s
popularly supposed to control these
prices, outcry at the grasping' policy of
the "robber oil trust" was to have been
(xpected; It Was Inevitable. And, de
spite the known fact that the prices of
petroleum and Its products have decreas

before the consolidations under Stand

many persons who are now llrmly of
the belief that fhv Standard Oil manage

THE HEART CAN BE TREATED.
The diseases of the heart are not
-tnscari)-y .iar.Vrr ,ilryoi -Coalvley. a
well-known vlvisectlonist of Chicago, has
Just discovered that to administer local
treatment to the heart Is not the lmpos
slolllty the world's scientists have al
ways held it to be.
By means of a fine hollow golden
needle seven or eight Inches long, which
he terms "organotone." Dr. Coakley not
only has been able to pierce the heart
without causing death, but to Inject Into
It various fluids without subjecting the
patient to the slightest danger.
Thus far Dr. Coakley has been com
pelled to confine his experiments to dogs,
rabbits and similar animals, but so cer
tain is he of- his ground that he will
attempt to secure a human subject for
a demonstration which he has been
asked to make before the International
Medical Congress, at Madrid, Spain, in
While at work over a dog recently the
dpctor conceived the Idea of injecting a
salt solution Into the animal's heart. To
his surprise, the dog not only withstood
the shock, but the heart action was Im
mediately greatly Improved. This led
him to make more extreme Investiga
tions, and these resulted in the verifi
cation of his first experiment.
BTEW TOSH RESIDENCES.
The number of private j-esldences thnt
are being erected In New 'ork for any
body but, rich people continues to grow
steadily less. Land values in the desir
able residential section have Increased
so enormously that inexpensive residences
are out of the question. In a-fashionable
section like Murray Hill a building, bit
tvlth only a 2 foot 'frontage Is reckoned
cheap at T5,00t), and the average cost of
29 house erected on such lots this year
has bjeenf JMS.OOO above the price of the
land on which they have been built. These
are reckoned only fairly good houses.
Sixty-seven residences of a higher class
erected this year are fetching from $500,000
to $600,000. It Is reasonably tafe to say
that In' no city In the world have so many
magnificent private residences been erect
ed at such enormous cost as has been
the case on Manhattan Island, particular
ly during the last three years. And there
are no signs of a diminution of the de
mand for them from the rich people who
are flocking thither from all over the

NOT A 8I.OT MACHINE,
Brunetlere, the French critic, was re
cently asked for a contribution to a sym
posium, the questions being: "What do
you think of the intellectual Influence of
Germany?" and "Is that Influence still
existent and justified by Its results?" M.
Iirunetiere made this scorching reply: "I
am not a slot machine from which by
dropping In your penny you get-a pack
age of .cigarette papers, a cage of choco
late, a matured, opinion on Shakespeare
or a criticism ofI)ismarck. I admit those
machines, but am not one. Go to them
and get your penny's worth."

Secretary Shaw says that Washington
Is very different from Dentson, la..
where he kept baik before becoming a
member or President Roosevelt's cabinet.
"In Denison," saW : the secretary. ,:ln
making his point, "we were taught .in
common with a great many other simple
country people that. Cleanliness is next
to godliness. Here fit Washington this
old proverb la reversed and cleanliness is
desecration." . ,
The secretary started out to carry hlB
Denison training Info effect as soon as
the dull summer months set In, and he
Is still working at. hla Job. He put a
force of painters and decorators at work
In the treasury building who cleared
away the dust accumulations and bright
ened the walls with reli , paint ahd new
decorations, The Washington public did
not take the secretary's action seriously
until he began on the exterior of the
building. The eastern side of the gran
ite structure was black and grimy with
deposits of dust and smoke, and as such
a condition of affairs did not accord with
the Denison idea of respectability, Mr.
Shaw secured the servioea of a Chicago
firm that cleans the exteriors of stone
buildings with a sand blast and In
structed ; that all evidences of age and
filth be removed. The cleaning is now
In progress, but the commendation which
Mr. Shaw expected from the Washing
ton public did not manifest Itself. In
stead came denunciation. Mr. Shaw
was proclaimed an Iowa Iconoclast and
it was asserted that he was destroying
the chief beauty of the magnificent
building over which he has temporary
"Might as well take a sand blast and
remove the moss of ages from Westmin
ister abbey or the. tower of London."
said the Washingtonlans, "as remove the
grime from the treasury building."
Mr. Shaw stopped the sand blast for a
couple of days to think lt,oyr. Then it
started tfp- again and each' day a bright',
clean column supports a clean section of
the long building ns the sand blast
moves along the building.
The President and Secretary Root are
much Interested in the plan of Senator
John T. Morgan of Alabama for trans
porting the negroes of the I'nlted Slates
to the Philippines. Like others who have
given the matter attention, Mr. Roose
velt is convinced that the race problem
Is as serious as uny now confronting the
people of this country. After nearly 0
years of freedom it has been demonstrat
ed that the black man Is nut suited to
participate In the affairs of a felf-gov-ernihg
people on a plane of equality with
thu white race.
On the other hand the emancipated
blacks do not seem to be Willlns or able
J.oJJhvc .fc'Vcef ullj with, J.hg white people
of the Soulh. or even of the more North
erly States, and It Is becoming apparent
t tin t it is only a question of time when
the races must be separated Or eilous
trouble be precipitated. Senator Morgan
looks to the nw Insular possessions as
the natural and Ideal refuge of the col
ored man. There is an Ideal climate fhr
him there, with plenty of room for all,
arid assured protection under the Ameri
can flag,-.autL the fostering varo. of our
republic. . in'tho PlUltvPibcat rich with
minerals and agricultural possibilities,
the rnoe might work out Its salvation.
Senator Morgan's Idea Is to establish
steamship service, and give uach settler
a certain amount of land to start him in
Independence and sClft-st'PPOrt. He will
frame legislation Tor his project later.
THE "SUAXL PRODUCER."
(New York Evening Post.)
The real question which Is that of ef
ficiency has been too much overlooked
in all the mistaken or crafty talk about
the small protlucw. It would be foolish
to set a limit to the growth of a large
enterprise In order to protect an ineffi
cient producer; and it Is equally absurd
to retain high duties In order to preserve
a small rival that cannot prcducc as
cheaply as a rust. How can the Inter
ests of consumers be safe-guarded by the
"weaker competitors" to whom the pres
ident refers? Efficiency Is the chief
thing to be desired, and, If foul play is
prevented, competition will leave the
most efficient factories, whether large
or small. In possession of the field. If a
smaller concern Is as efficient an a truit.
Tf will survive the reduction or removal
of protective duties; but If less efficient,
it cannot moderate the exactions of mo
nopoly. For the vivid Illustration of
these truths, in a way to Impress the
general imagination, we have to thank
the recent steel -merger.
