'When I consider the geo
Krnphlcnl position of the United
States with respect tu Mexico,
with respect to the Pacific Coast
States of I.atln America, with
reference to the Pacific Coast
provinces of China with their
teeming millions of population
now dependent on Kuropo to pro
vide them with the necessities,
and that Europe to gain the
trade of the Orient must cross
two oceans, while tho United
States will cross hut one, I am
convinced that the Great .Master
of tho Universe has designed the
American Republic to eventual

One of the most remarkable facts
connected with Amerlcnn civilization
is that every important record of the
nation and every scrap of history, is
preserved on paper. A great fire or
inundation, extensive enough tn
.scope, would completely obliterate all
written records of the nation. In tho
sands of Egypt, the professors of
Stanford University are unearthing
tablets containing written history
over 4,000 years old. There Is not a
record written on nu substance In
this country, which would stand such
a tost. It would bo possible to wipe
tho record of the American people off
the face of the earth, but there Is no
immediate probability of such an oc
currence. Since inc first dawn of European
history, the brigand races of the Hal
kaiis have been us a nest of scorpi
ons to tho civilized people surround

ple within reach of them, has been
safe from their fiendish, fanatical at
tacks. They have opixised every civ
ilizing Influence and have murdered
ovory civilized person left unprotect

commercial and industrial subjects
now befoie the people are being dis

go numerous committees to the na

to tho West.
Among the great topics now being
discussed are tho opening of the Co
lumbia rlvnr, tho most feasible meth

The congress was organized
to bring transportation facilities to
the producers of the larger part of
the nation's domestic and export
wealth, who loll in the cotton ami
grain fields, in the lumber, the iron,
the coal, and the oil regions, and lu i

The millers of North Dakotu anil
.Minnesota have Just held a rousing
meeting and adopted strong resolu
tions favoring reciprocity with every
country importing American Hour. If
these same millers were asked about
the tariff on articles In which they
were not Interested In, It Is safe to
say they would favor a high rate.
Hut when you reverse the order, and
touch tho pocket of the American
manufacturer, the high tariff becomes
a source of grief to him. A high tar
in' Is the acme of selllshncss, as is
piuved by this very Instance. The
American manufacturer wants all the
advantage, both wnys. Ho wants
protection If he bolls abroad, anil yet
wants a prohibitive tariff against all
foreign goods which are sold In this
country. It is n case of "heads you
lose, tails I win."

easily approached of presidents. Tho
writer never heart! of a declination
by hliu of a single request by a news
paper man for u porsounl meeting.
Indeed, It seemed to distress hint to
bo obliged to postpone the call of a
visiting newspaper man, although the
change may have been made for the
best reasons. Ho was always eager
to meet either individual newspaper
men or the entire body of correspond

to bo on familiar speaking terms with

Where romping waters dance and
And sunshine glinting through the

Or lu the cascade fades away,

Show dimples edged with aniethysl,
And riffles gleaming In the sun,
Where limped waters murmuring run,
And laughing softly, show beneath
The milk-white pebbles of their teeth,
Thoro bluebells ring, und there, per

To perfumed music, ami some sprite

Quaint, dainty sabot, made lo suit

And lu Its shadow darkly deep,
