District President Nlcholls Is quoted at Indianapolis as saying that he never was personally in favor of a strike. That must refer to tho proposed gen eral strike. Mr. Nlcholls is generally credited with having been the parent of the anthracite strike. Christian Endeavor Progress. ANNOUNCEMENT of the forthcoming retirement of John Willis Eaer from tho general secretaryship of tho United Society of Christian Endeavor to become one of the assistant secre taries of the Presbyterian Board of Home Missions supplies an occasion for glancing at the growth of the Christian Endeavor movement. This is concisely set forth in the resolutions of the trus tees reluctantly accepting Mr. Baer's decision: "When Mr. B.ier assumed the duties of general secretary at the St. Louis convention In 1S00, there were 11,013 Christian Endeavor societies in all the world; today there are more than 62,000 societies. Then there was a total mem bership of GGU.000; now the enrollment exceeds 3,(100,000. In ISOO the United Society of Christian Endeavor was the only national organization; now there are United societies in Canada, Mexico, England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Australia, South Africa, India, China, Japan, Switzerland, Spain, Germany, France, Italy and Jamaica, many of these having their own general secre taries. Thus, where in 1S90 the move ment had barely started in a few lorelgn countries, ..today there are Christian Endeavor societies in prac tically every country on the globe, while the Endeavor constitution and literature have been translated Into more than fifty languages and dialects. In 1S00 tho local work was largely limited to the development of the young people's prayer meeting. By natural process, lcspandlng to conditions us they arose, tho society bus not only broadened its lleld of usefulness in the local church, but has developed a ser vice of wide Influence and Importance along tho vuiious lines of flouting Christian Endeavor for the sailors, societies In army posts for the soldiers, societies in prison tamps (as among the Boer prl&oneis In the late South Afri can war), personal work for prisoners and societies In penal and reformatory institutions,' noonday evangelistic ser vices, open-air service's In summer, work In missions and hospitals, and practical effprts in behalf of Christian citizenship and good government, In deed, In all lines of Christian philan thropic effort the Interest of the young . people has been awakened and their activities enlisted by this movement." To a largo degree this growth reflects the Industry, persuasiveness, tact and fine moral enthusiasm of Mr. Uaer. In jhjs new (eld there Is no reason to doubt that hei will bu equally a power for g8fcd;?Tha nature of that Held and tho character of Mr, Baer's work In it are well Indicated in the following state riibntXiby the Presbyterian Board of Home Missions: TTlio board of homo missions believes that tho evangelization of our country has a deeper meaning and a wider reach than ever beforo, Tho Ralvatlon of our cities, tho training of our foreign popula tion to Ideals of Christian citizenship, tho gospellzlng of new parts of tho country co rapidly tilling up that now utates aro born in a day, ond tho extension of our - national authority and Institutions to tho islands beyond our shores, unite in a call tXr a strong and steady homo mission ud jance. Desiring to help tho church to answer theso calls and meet theso duties, fno board has made larger plans, and to hlslst In carrying (hem out has elected yjhn Willis Uaer, general secretary of tho United Society of Christian Endeav or, os nn assistant secretary of the board, Mr. Baor has accpted tho office, and will sbter on his duties on the first of Octo-W-r, Bccauso of Ids long and successful farcer In kindred mission work, his proved executive ability, nnd his ntrong purson allty, the board receives him to Its offl clal staff with largo expectation and most cardial welcome. It Is a line thing to see our churches keeping pace with the swift piovement of events. ' The statement that Congressman Ht tletleia had been commissioned by the president to draft an administration itntl-.trust bill proves to haye been fan- clful. Tho president la not commls elonlng anybody to do tho work of congress. But he Is getting ready to give congress somo good advice, nnd Mr. Llttleficld la just the kind of man to profit by It, Tho friars are not to bo ordered out of 'the Philippines: they will merely find It desirable to scnkjOthcr fields, tho suggestion coming through their ec clesiastical superiors. All's well that ends well. Views of John W. Gates. THE CAREER, of John W. Gates from tho tlino when, in the enrly seventies, he be came dlssutlBflod with $100 a month salary nnd expenses ns a. trav eling salesman for u barbed wire fonco manufacturing concern and decided to set up a business for himself, down, through tho long scries of Nupoleonio plunges to tho comparatively recent execution of his corner on corn, tho usufruct of which Is reported to be $1,500,000 of profit, Is full of human In terest. Ho Is a gambler and ,a sport and yet withal a man of exceptional shrewdness, absolutely loyal to hts friends; and his head Is full of Ideas, for making money. He engineered the wire trust, first suggested tho steel trust, played ducks and drakes with Louisville and Nashville and cleans up a million or two on 'change every little while, just for pastime. Yet notwith standing the checiinesa of his methods, ho Is a master of exact knowledge and Is trying hard In his maturer years to become conservative. Tho other day ho talked long and en tertainingly with a New York Commer cial Advertiser reporter concerning a variety of topics. Naturally chief among these was the subject of rail roading, Mr. Gates' present hobby. Ho predicted decreased freight rates with Increased profits, explaining the latter by calling attention to the wonderful Improvement taking place in the trans porting business and also In the shut ting off of rebates. "The amount of money paid out by railroad Companies In rebates since tho passage of the in terstate commerce law In 1SSG would, In my judgment," ho said, "almost pay the national debt. What has made the railroads poor has been the carrying of people for nothing and cutting nominal tariffs actually In two in many In stances." Speaking further as to the future of railroading he said: "The railroad inteiests of this country are to go tluough a continual process of consolidation. Small linos will be absorbed by larger ones. The ten dency of freight rates in the United States will within the next ten years be lower, and yet tho profits of the rail roads will, in my judgment, be even greater with the lower rates, owing to the Improvements in rolling stock and motive power, roadbed, the cutting out of curves and cutting down of grades and increasing train loads. Only a few years ago every man of any prominence in the United States who was riding on a railroad pass felt as though he was entitled to it. This Is being done away with more nnd more each year, and justly so. The standard of railroad men is being elevated. ' Closer compari sons are being made; the cost of main tenance of road, rolling stock and main tenance of equipment is reduced. Great er care is exercised in the purchasing and engineering departments. Many men who twenty-five years ago were presidents or general managers of rail roads would not today be considered suillclently efllcient to opeiate a log ging road. The system of accounts has become a science and has been brought down to tho finest possible point. Ten yeuis ago nearly every prominent rail road In the United States was slow in paying Its current bills, letting them run two or three months past due and in many cases three to six months. To day there is scarcely a prominent rail road In the United States that has not millions of dollars in Its treasury.whieh it Is continually using to better the con ditions of its road-bed, to put In new steel bridges In place of wooden struc tures, to cut out curves and cut down grades, to erect new docks and general ly to enhance the value of Its property." Mr. Gates Is of the belief that tho coun try has seen the last of serious rate wars, and that the developments of the future will be wholly In the direction of greater economy, stability and har mony of service. One other point In this interesting man's Interesting Interview Is his opin ion of ship subsidies. On this point he said: What this country lacks most today 1o further leach tho inntkets of tho world properly Is butter shipping facilities by water. This can only be accomplished to my mind by subsidizing steamship lines. My theory would ho to do that on tho following basis: Pay subsidies to ev ery ship built of American malcilal, by American woikmen, at so much per ton for each 1,000 ndles, so much for each ad ditional thousand miles or fractional part thoicof on any products which they might tianspoit to foreign countries, whothor It bo agricultural or manufactured mato lal. My reason for this statement Is that what Inteiests tho farmeis of tho United States and tho manufactures of tho United States uro not speedy steam ships which aro ablo to traverse tho ocean at tho rato of 25 knots per hour, but ships that will cheaply transport tho pioducts of tho United States, whether they bo agricultural or manufactured, to all parts of tho world at tho lowest possible rato, thereby Insuring to American producers tho highest obtainable piico for their products nnd encouraging munufuctuiers to pay tho present or even a higher lute of wages to American worklngmon, Cer tainly no sane man will arguo that any American shipbuilder an constiuct ns cheaply in tho United Suites us In foreign ports on account of tho ono question of labor. Besides this, every American ship owner has to pay a higher rato of wages to his hcamen than is paid by the for eign shipowner handling tho same cioss of tonnage. Mr, Gates' view on tho subsidy ques tion Is absolutely sound. If General Buller imagines that he can write history better than ho mado It In South Africa, ho Is probably cor rect. In tho matter o'f tho crowning of King Edward on August 0, seeing will be bcllevlns. Count Matusakata, Japan's former minister of finance, says he fears that American business men are doing business at too rapd a pace and are taking too many long chances to es cape serious setbacks in case of mis fortune. Tho opinion -Is warranted ! yet tho foundations or our present pros perity aro durable. Banker Moroslnl'n gift of $100,000 to tho fund for tho restoration of the Cam panile at Venice will undoubtedly in spire other poor Italian boys to como to America nnd grow into wealth like wise. If they shall make ns goor citi zens ns ho has made, they, will de serve a cordial welcome. Reports from Blucflclds leave little doubt that tho latest revolution In Nicaragua is on its last legs. A tu multuous battle has Just been fought, nnd the Invaders have been beaten back with u loss of four killed. Captain Strong's desertion of May Yohe, after n year of scandalous living, exemplifies tho course of nature. It would properly punish this pair should they bo made to live together the re mainder of their lives. William Jennings Bryan is certainly making n plucky though hopeless fight against the past tense. General Wood's comment that tho Pennsylvania guardsmen are soldiers covers tho ground. m A little civil service reform is needed In the consul generalship at Havana. A stogie trust Is the latest. This is a burning shame. Progress Toward Tree Protection Special Correspondence. Washington, July 20. THERE is reason to feel that tho American peoplo havo been awak ened to tho need of safeguarding their great forest areas and intro ducing in the management of tho lumber business scientific principles of forestry. On July 1 tho bureau of forestry begnn its Held season of 1S92. and its work Is now being carried on In twenty states. Tho bureau has appointed ninety new student assistants for this season, tho entire field force numbering 1G5 men. Tho work Includes, among other things, tho gathering of the necessary data for several working plans, a study of a number of well known commercial trees, the exam ination of farm woodlots, and a study of tho treeless areas with a view of de vising plans for forest extension. Tho bureau of forestry begins tho new fiscal year of 1902-1903 with an Appropria tion of $291, SCO. The amount for tho year just ended was J1S3.410. This increased appropriation shows how this work com mends Itself to congress, and It makes possible a much wider range of work. Tho present senson's work Is by far tho mo3t vailed and Interesting yet undertaken by the bureau and Is being carried on in Maine. New Hampshire, Vermont, Massa chusetts. New York, New Jersey, Mary land, Tennessee, Kentucky, West . Vir ginia, North Carolina, Michigan, Min nesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Da kota, Montana, Arizona and California. Later In the season It will be extended to still other states and territories. Tho field work necessary for a work ing plan for tho tract of tho Great North pin Paper company which was begun last field season Is being continued now, nnd will bo finished this year, it is be ing carried on by two fully -equipped parlies, each consisting of fifteen men. A working plan Is being mado for tho tract of hardwoods of the Llnville im provement company, lying around Grand father Mountain in western North Caro lina. The bureau is also makins a care ful study of tho forest resources of Ot sego county, New York, with the purpose of drawing up a simple and direct man ual of Instructions for tho management of tho prlvato forest lands In that county. Tho expenses of the field work aro being borno wholly by airs. Alfred Corning Claik, who Is greatly Interested in for estry, and desirous that the forests of tho county shall bo treated In a practical manner. Through tho co-operation of Mr. Ring, forest commlslsonor of Maine, a study has been undertaken of tho forest condi tions of that state. This Is to Include nn Investigation of tho behavior of tho spruce after lumbering, in order to draw up simple nnd practical rules for has tening tho production of a second crop upon lumbered laud. It entails also a careful study of tho flro problemmnd of tho host means of fighting tire In this region. This Investigation further In cludes a consideration of local log scales. Much attention will bo given during tho present season to tho examination ot woodlots, In tho management of which tho nsslstaneo of tho bureau has boon re quested. Two skilled men will bo du talled for this work, and It Is tho Inten tion ot tht bureau that Its ngonts shall visit nil woodlots for which applications havo been made. Ono of tho most Important and Inter esting undertakings by tho bureau during tho present field season Is a careful study of n number of tho most valuable Amor lean commercial trees. This will Ineludo among others a study of tho Adirondack balsam. In Franklin county, Now York, Imident-to tho work of tho bureau In connection with tho Chippewa Indian res ervation In Minnesota a careful study of tho. red pine Is In progress, A study of tho rato of growth of tho sugar plno In California, which was begun last season, Is now being continued, Last year's work began In tho northern part of tho state and In southern Oregon, and this season tho examination will bo continued south ward with tho Idea of covering tho full commercial rango of this Important tim ber tree, The southern hardwoods will ho studied In Kentucky, North Carolina and West Virginia. This work will bo main ly devoted to a consideration of tho oaks nnd tho yellow poplar, tho Idea being to study them In their rommo'rclal ranges, nlong with other trees which occur In mixture with them. On July 1 tho division of forest exten sion was established In tho bureau of forestry to take rhargo of tho work hcro toforo dono by tho section of treo plant ing, Tho work of tho now division will bo to dovlso plans for Increasing tho for est area whero It Is deficient. This It will do by tho encouragement of planting whero that Is necessary to secure a stand of trees, nnd by Improving tho con ditions for natural seeding over areas whero tho present forest stand Is In sufficient. Several parties are now m tho field In connection with this work, in tho Mlddlo West a largo number of land ownors havo mado application for assist ance In establishing woodlot and otlior forest plantations, nnd the work of ex omlnlng these farms ond preparing plans for thorn Is pow under way, On tio for est reserves recently established In the snnd hills if Nebraska, by President Roosevelt's ' proclamation, preparations for extcnslvo planting are being carried forward as lapldly as possible Tho nee cssary buildings will bo erected, seed beds and nurseries will bo prepared, and a largo quantity of seed collected In prepa ration for planting next spring. A field pnrty of seven men Is making a forest survey of Oklahoma, Including a special study of forest conditions on the Wichita forest reserve. On tho Pres cott forest reserve In Arizona an Inves tigation is being mado to devise methods for Incicaslng tho forest stand by Im proving the conditions for natural seed ing. In Massachusetts nnd Now Hamp shire a party studying the reproduction of white pine, on old Holds nnd pastures, for tho purposo of determining tho beat conditions for eecd germination. In ad dition a patty will study tho results of planting to reclaim tho sand dunes. alom? tho Atlantic coast. A great dcul of work has been dono for this purposo on Cnpa Cod In Massachusetts, and somo In Now Jersey. A thourough Bttidy Is also being mndo of tho drifting Rand along tho Col umbia liver In tho vicinity of Tho Dalles, Oregon, to devise means for controlling it by planting. Tho work along thin lino by tho bu reau of foicstry Includes on Investigation of the distribution of forests, tholr char acter, extent, nnd tho available supplies of timber. Tho study of the forest ie sources of tho beat timbered counties of Maryland la being continued, This work was begun In 11)00 nnd Ivib been going on through each field season since. Exam inations nf tho forest conditions nnd re sources of Votmont, nnd also of portions of tho northern peninsula of Michigan aro being made. Investigations havo begun In tho collection of published nnd unpub lished data, showing tho post nnd pres ent yields of wood of various kinds, In cluding Imports nnd exports nnd con sumption for nil purposes. This Inves tigation also Includes a consideration of Amcilcan woods In foreign markotP, nnd foreign woods In homo markets. Atten tion is behig given to tho collection of data showing tho production nnd vnluo of by-products of American forests. This will Include commercial gums, rosins, tur pentine, and tar extracts. In short, tho wholo subject of forestry In Its Innumerable aspects Is being lapld ly approached from a sclontlflc basis. MADE IT PLAIN From tho New Yorker. A gentleman, whose liberality In no way corresponded to his means, found out ono day that thoro was somo remainder nlo In his cellar almost spoiling, and decided to get rid of It without delay. Tho next morning when ho was rambling over his estate, ho camo across a party of workmen. Addressing tho man In charge, ho ostentatiously presented tho ale to tho men, nnd said they could go and fetch It ns they liked. A few days afterward ho happened to meet, tho foreman again, and Immediately proceeded to extract from him in somo way a sultablo acknowledgment of tho bounty recently bestowed. "Well, Williams," said tho donor, with tho air of a man who had granted an un speakable favor, "did you and your men havo that ale?" "Oh, yes, sir, thank you, wo bad it," was tho reply. "That's right, and how did you like It?" said the gentleman, desiring a warmer expresslbn of gratitude. "Oh, sir, it was Just tho thing for us," was tho rather vaguo response. "Ho, that'll do then. But what do you mean by 'Just tho thing?' " "Well, sir," said WIIHanjs, "if It 'nd been a little bettor wo shouldn't a 'ud It, and If it 'ad been a little worso wo couldn't a drinked It."
