A sapplement of a recent issue
of the American Economist has
just foundFits way to our tab e.
It is one of the finest things of
its kind ever put out by any
publication and is in reality a
veiy , eompletej financial history
of the United States - during
periods, of panic and prosperity.
The supplement is worthy the
following quoting:
Well paid employment and
generous living mean prosperity.
These two conditions call . much
money into circulation. There
fore, the national circulation of
money per capita is an authentic
index of the general national
prosperity and of national ad
irersity. The government report of
annual circulationof money ex-
tends back to 1830, only. Hence,
tbe record of importation per
capita is taken 'to outline the
panic of 1819. The circulation
of money per capita at this time
TvaslS-SGi At that period there
ware neither embargo, blockade,
near non-intercourse laws to affect
foreign trade. We had no rail
roads; manufacture was small;
we depended largely upon im
ported goods. A decrease of
urosperity produced a decrease
-of importation.
When men see good opportune
ties ahead they borrow freely at
the banks in order that they may
profit by such opportunities
""When the future . is forbidding
they borrow little, and the banks
are less willing to make loans
Therefore, the record of bank
loans and discounts per capita is
. an authentic index? of prosperity
-and adversity in the three great
industries, manufacture, trans
portation and merchandising.
When farmers, manufacturers,
lumbermen and fishermen pro
dace their wares bountifully,
jailroads have a large freight
fejsiness and at paying rates,
lErom this fact it is recognized
ibat railroad freight earnings per
-capita furnish a third effective
index of the industrial and finan
eial condition of thefcountry.
From many records lit wouid
appear that the'panic of 1819 did
not last until 1830. It is a matter
of regret that the treasury de
partment has never computed the
annual circulation of money per
capita prior to 1830. It reports
lor census years, as follows:
1820, $6196; 1810,' $7.50; 1800,
4.99. The present amount of
money per capita in the United
Sates is figured somewhat above
After three trials Williamson,
Gesner and Biggs have been con
victed of conspiracy to suborn
perjury. John Newton William
son is representative to congress
from Oregon. Dr. Van Gesner is
Ms partner and Marion R. Biggs
is .their friend and also the
United States Land Commissioner
'for the general land office at
The jury in the other trials dis
agreed, some being willing to
convict Gesner and Biggs provi
ded Williamson would be turned j
Joose. The opinion prevails
among the mass of the people
that members of former juries
who made such a stand for Wil
liamson were either interested
themselves or else had close
friends in some way connected
'with Williamson's transactions.
There rriust have been some such
reason, else, why on the same
evidence would one man, a party
to the same misdeeds as his
confederates not be guilty like
lis pals?
, The example set by the gov
ernment authorities in regard to
this wholesale land siealing is j
certainly one of which the coun
try stood in nsed. Too long and
two often have .we heard the cry
that the rich are privileged ;ye
yond the daring of the poor: too
QTl listened to the assertion that.
. - . ,
J rich that they may grow richer
while the poor grow coiTespond-
mgly poorer. If ever this was
true, there are at present many
signs of a change of method;
there are indications that while
Teddy is in the saddle he will,
indeed, insist upona "square
deal" for every man.1. . ;
While many may bewail the
luck of Oregon in having her re
presentatives at the national
capital convicted of crimes
against the statutes,- few there
are bold enough to assert that in
the case just concluded the de
fendants did not have a fair and
impartial trial. Only, recently
Senator Mitchell fell from his
high place in the minds of men.
AncUo what dqes'tiis future
point? To naught but old age
and disgrace. Surely he has
paid a heavy price for overstep
ping the point of strict honesty.
So have the men just convicted-
lhat they might acquire a few
thousand acres additional land for
sheep , pasture, they have sold
their honor, their own self -re
spect, bartered away the right
to look honest men in the face
they stand today as rogues in the
estimation of good : men. A
kingdom is not worth the price.

in this matter is due to the ef
forts of the lieutenant, both with
officials of "the war department
and in the task of working the
Doys up to such a splendid state
of efficiency on "the field . A few
days ago Lieutenant Quinlan re
ceiyed the following communica
tion from the war department
D'treau 01 insular affairs:
I have the honor to bring to
your attention a request cabled
by the Governor-General of the
Philippine Islands, that, this bu
reau choose conditionally about
twenty-live high grade college
men irom which selections may
be made for the appointment of a
number of Lieutenants in th
Philippine Constabulary. The
selection are to be made by Brig
adier General Henrv T. Allen.
Chief of the Constabulary, upon
his arrival lp Washington - on
leave of absence.
There is enclosed herewith
copy of General Orders . No. 78
and an extract irom Circular 28,
or the Constabulary, series of
1904, which afford much detail
ed information as to the requisite
quanncations. in addition, now
ever, I might add that some two
years ago in connection with the
selection of a number of 3rd
Lieutenants, General Allen wrote
as follows respecting the type of
men he desired to secure:
"Fellows who are by temper
ament soldiers, strong, fine look
ing, and intelligent, with plenty
of good sense and nerve." ;
The cablegram indicates that
the Philippine Commission has
passed a new law respecting the
pay of Constabulary officers, fix
ing the scale as follows: '
Third Lieutenant, per year :..$110O
Second, " 1200
First, " ." ' 1300
They have also adopted the
Army scale of longevity pay.
Appointees may pay their own
expenses to Manila subject to
rebursement after two -years' sat
isfactory service, or transporta
tion may be advanced bv this
Bureau, subject to deduction
irom their salaries at io per cewt
ana reinbursetrnnt aner two
years' service.
The examinations referred to
in General Orders 78 and Circu
lar's are not held in the United
States, and it is contemplated
that the selection of college men
may be made without such ex
amination along the line indicat
ed in paragraph 2 of the order
.It is hoped that you may know
of one or more thoroughly com
petent aMi desirable men, grad
uates of your school, who would
like one of these positions, and
this Bureau will appreciate your
interest in bringing the, matter
to the attention of such graduates
as you may regard desirable and
who would likely accept appoint
ment ifselec'ted. . I am enclosing
herewith three copies of Form 2,
on which it is desiied that ap
plicants set iorth their training,

they may desire to offer.
For the guidance of r General
Allen it is. requested that you
write this Bureau regarding the
various graduates whom you can
recommend, so that he will have
as full information as iriav be ob
tainable to guide him in selecting
those to be appointed.
In case you can nake no re
