THE HRITISH PRIXCE
s A great deal ol nonsense, favor
able and unfavorable has teen writ
ten about the proposed visit of the
Prince ol Wiles to this country..
Nearly all the speculation regard
ing the social aspect of the Prince's
visit, the requirements of precedent,
the people who will be permitted to
meet him or entertain him, the so
ciety bude who will exhibit ' their
charms In his royal presence, etc.,
may be swept aside as silly. There
is, unfortunately, much toadyism la
tent in certain strata of American
society; but that Is not the dominant
spirit of the nation, and has nothing,
to do with the purpose and- spirit
with which the Prince is coming and
with which he will be regarded by
the American people as a whole.
Just as aflly is the critical and
oven scurrilous comment emanating
from some of the professional an-,
glophobea or 'British-baiters in the
United States, who use the Prince as
a: text for a new series of diatribes
against the British empire and peo
ple. A favorite device of these critics
fa to "damn with faint praise." Ed
ward is described patronizingly as
"a nice boy," personally likable and
commendable. Between the lines is
the implication that as the prospec
tive ruler of the British Empire he
is but a sorry spectacle, and that any
nation that will even pretend to be
ruled by Buch a commonplace Indi
vidual Is absurd and undemocratic.
": The fact is that the king-emperor,
who is now George and will eventu
ally be Edward, is literally the "king
pin" that holds the British Empire
together. That empire is a great
aggregation of democratic and virtu
ally independent nations. Without
the Imperial crown, they would fall
apart. Making an exception of Ire
land, it may be said truly that in the
present stage of affairs, such disinte
gration would" toe a lamentable thing
for the world.
Politically George Is, and Edward
will Toe, little more than a symbol of
unity. But there Is nothing on earth
more powerful than symbols. Viewed
in that aspect .alone, the American
government and American people
may well give a respectful and friend
ly greeting to this representative of
the British government and British
people. Through him the two great
est peoples on earth shake hands
with each other.
It is all the easier and pleas inter
for Americans to be hospitable to
Prince Edward because, wbtle not
pretending to brilliancy or special
ability, he hat proved his mettle In
the war, and is known for the qual
itlee of modesty, manliness, sincer
ity and democratic simplicity whltih
Americans always' admire.
ROOSTER SUNDAY '
Do you keep Rooster Sunday? If

"better egg." ' t

Quality and Service
Persons who have been experi
menting in the flavor and lasting
powers of eggs have discovered that
a non-fertile egg is much more deli
cate in taste than a fertile one, and
as a subject for storage is far pref
erable, since it keeps longer without
acquiring that racy flavor which only
a trained palate can appreciate.
In the. Interests of the "better
egg," a movement has been Inaugu
rated to kill the rooster and eat him
for Sunday dinner, hence the watch
word, "Rooster Sunday." ,
Of course opponents of the scheme
see in it only another phase of the
feminist, movemnet, one more effort
to increase the supremacy of the
female of the species.
But the true
eggotist, who maintains that there
should be good taste in eggs as in
everything, sets his aw and whets
his ax, and goes rooster, stalking

TRUST IN DAWSON
(Caltxico( Cul.) Chronicle)
The whole world etltl loves a atory
of the frontier. There l a JIurIb and
a human side, particularly In Ameri
can frontier history, that Is intensely
fascinating. K. J. iMcCormlck of the
Cottage Hotel, tells a ood one', Now
Mac has seen something of the old
world, and 'has bwn in the mining
game wherever the rush has been.
Ilu tells this experience while he was'
"I was in Dawson City In the
spring of 1899; It was the big ban
nor year In population, thore being
somewhere from forty to sixty thou
sand people there from all parts of
the globe. The meat busliuM tbeef
soiling at 85 cents a pound) was a
perfect gold mine for the dealers.
Hilly Perdue. William Rudlo, Pat
Galvlu, Pat 'Hums, the N. A. T. & T.
Co., North American Transportation
& Trading company or In other
words the Cudahy 'Packing company
of Chicago, with John J. lleley as
its manager; and there were several
other smaller firms, but t!ine men
tinned were the principal wholesale
hoiiHm who sold .meat only by the
"I boiiHht my 'beef, pork and unit
ton from the Cudahy ix'ople all win
ter, at the above figure. Perdue was
in for dinner one day and luppcnivl
to mention that he did not think all
the beef in ntorage there could be
used before the Ico broke up, or the
time when the new stock of freeh
meat would come down the river In
scows aud boats. The weather was
bitter cold and everyone wus weurinK
fur coats, capos aud moccasins; one
could not tell his own brother, muf
fled up as we were compelled to be.
I went up to lleley's as the place
was called, dressed In aM my furs,
and asked the price of beef, and he
said, 'Why you have certainly been
buying all winter and know the price
without asking.' I told him Perdue
was now Boiling at 65 cents. Instead
of leaving my order I walked out
and down to my place of business,
had taken off my furs and was weigh
ing out gold dust when a man came
in from Heley'a and asked for the
man who was up for a side of beef.
I told him he had just gone over to
Billy Perdue'a for some. ,He said:
'Tell .him when he come In that If
Billy 'Perdue sells beef for 65
cents we will go him one better and
make it 37'4 cents.' I told him to
send down a side, which he did, and
to my surprise the fblll called for
just 37 Vi cents a pound. I epoke to
Billy the next time he came in to
dinner about the big companies not
giving the smaller ones a square
deal, and he asked me why. I show
ed him my bill at 37 Vt cents and that
afternoon he saw all the other deal
ers and they all announced through
the Dawson Dally Nugget that
cents would be the price of beef.
From that time the miners came
down with their sleds and every man
took home a side of beef. And it
was the best thing that could hap
pen to the, companies, they had sold
ail their beef out just as the fresh
beef came in with the breaking up of
