THE RECURRENCE of vio
lence which Is reported from
various places in the Btriko
holt, and which In nearly
every Instance takes the form of forci
ble lntoi ference by strikers or their
sympathizes with men at work or
seeking work In or about the mines, Is
greatly to he deplored and cannot be
tolerated. It violates tho counsel and
instructions of the responsible strike
leaders and It affronts and challenges
all who believe in law nnd order.
Undoubtedly this violence is tho work
of hot heads; of boys, women and men
who are carried away by their feelings
and prejudices, and do not realize that
they are doing exactly what the opera
tors would have them do so as to turn
tho current of public sympathy and
bring on tho Interposition of troops.
For this reason, while oflicers of the
law must enforce tho law at any and
all hazards, and must be upheld while
doing it, it especially behooves the more
intelligent and judicious strikers to
take active measures to hold these
violent persons in check.
Nearly twelve weeks of the strike
have passed without violence of a
serious or general character. The ab
stention from violence by the men on
strike has been their strongest weapon.
It has enabled their leaders to appeal
to the countiy to take notice that the
contest, ono of the lurgest in the his
tory of tho labor movement, has been
at the same lime one of the most peaee
lul. Dependent as they now are upon
outside contiibutious for tho con
tinuance of their struggle, the strikers
have a monetary as well us a moral
Flake In preserving this good reputa
tion. Mob demonstrations and defiance of
tho laws of the land would shut the
pocket books of outside sympathizers
more quickly than anything else that
the strlkeis could do.
From tho evidence at hand it npprais
that Pugllibt Goddurd, the Camden rc
pcaur and polling place thug, gof
about witat ho deserved.

q. most-adventurous journey, which was
practically taken with u view of Inves

ho-imllt through from Europe to tho
Bering Straits to connect with un Alu3
kaa,roj.d. "De Wludt and his companions left
Paris on Dee. 19, and, proceeding via
Moscow, they went over tho Trans
Siberian railway to Irkutsk, ut which
point they arrived on Jan. 12, anil there
abandoned the railroad for horses and
rokas. Horses were not spared, nnd
with relays they made the arduous
jurrtey over 2,000 miles of steppes to
IVikutBlc, which the explorer declares Is
E&fcf to be the coldest spot of the
vjonld, in twenty-three days. At Ya
kutsk the ofllclals Insisted on a guide

upd tho party proceeded north 800 miles
to Vernoyskl, where, after a short stay,
fresh reindeer were secured and the
Prty started on their thousand-mile
journey to the Arctic coast.
''Arriving at tho coast, little food
could bo secured by the travelers, but
dog teams were obtained and a sort of
pemmlcan, the only food available, Jt
forming the main article of diet on
their next stage, which was 1,600 miles
to past Cupe, on the Siberian coast of
Bering Straits. Most of the wny this
Journey was over the arctic ice, nnd
was traversed with dlflleuity. Along
the shore line but little driftwood was
available, nnd many days the pnrty

tent was used, nnd on nccount of tho

severely from tho terrible cold. The

Minister Wu's Recall.
THE DUTY for which Wu
Ting-fang has been recalled
to China Is ono of great Im
portance, and It Is likely to
prove very helpful to American In
terests that Mr. Wu Is to have charge
of It. He Is to revise the laws of China.
At present that country has no law3.
Separate edicts are Issued for every
matter requiring governmental atten
tion. These are often conflicting and
are based on no definite underlying
principles, being usually Influenced by
the latest "pull." How far Mr. Wu
will be permitted to substitute for such
an erratic method a disgested system
cannot, of course, be foretold; but
Americans will readily believe that ho
will do his best, and they know that
means much. Ho is probably the ablest
living Chinaman; a man well educated
in both Chinese and modern lore; and
apart from his scholarship, his friendly
influence at Pekin will be a valuable
Aside from the general Interest which
Americans have in the modernization
of China, their financial and commer
cial stake In that country is consider
able, and growing. In tho August Pro
tectionist Walter J. Ballard makes this
plain. Upon tho authority of Consul
Geneial John Gocdnow, of Shanghai,
Mr. Ballard gives our sales to China as,
as near as the records show, but he
thinks the correct figures would be
considerably larger, as American goods
shipped by Canadian Pacific steamers
(for want of American ships) are credit
ed to Canada. Those shipped by tho
Japanese line fiom Seattle and San
Francisco (also for want of American
ships) are credited to Japan. Those
via London are credited to Great Bri
tain, and those via Hongkong to Hong
kong. We get credit at the Chinese
Imperial maritime customs for only the
goods' shipped on the few American
lines, and cleared from United States
ports to ports In China.
Our principal sales to China In 1900
and 1901 were
Cotton drills $l,7ffil,W)9 J3.IS1.113

Tea 3,403,545 1,513,307

Our total trade with China In 1901
(exports and Imports) was about $42,
000,000, as against about the same in
19C0. Imports from tho United States
Increased about $7,500,000 and exports to
tho United States fell off $7,500,000,
making tho balance of trade $15,000,000
In our favor. Our trade with China
last year was about 11 per cent of her
total foreign commerce, but only 1.3
of It wus carried In American ships.
Mr. Ballard well says; "As wo have
never Incurred tho hostility of tho
Chinese by forcing grants of territory
or ports, In compensation for real or
fancied Injuries, nor In any way sought
to benefit by tho many embarrassments
of tho CeleBtlal empire; on the contrary,
as In our dealings with her, we have
always governed our actions by the
motto, or title of Charles Heude's cele
brated novel, 'Put Yourself In Ills
Place,' wo can fairly count on Chinese
good will towards Americans and
everything American, which meuns n
much larger share of the future busl
nebs of Unit densely populated country
of enormous consuming capacity, and
very limited manufacturing facilities."
As a substantial proof of tho favor
which Americans ut present enjoy In
China the fact should be mentioned
that an Imperial edict has just been
Issued at Pekin authorizing tho com
mencement of construction work upon
tho proposed railroad between Hankow
and Canton, and tho issue of $40,000,000
of gold bonds as a subsidy to assist
the enterprise. The several governors
and other ofllclals along tho line of the
road are commanded to render every
uld in their power to the contractors.
nnd engineers, and it Is Understood to
be the wish of the empress dowager
that not less than onchnlf the stock
and bonds of tho company shall bo sub
scribed for by native capitalists In
order that they may share the control
of tho property. This Is nn American
enterprise, organized by tho late Sen
nlor JJrlCe, of Ohio, nnd a syndicate
of the richest men In Now York Is be
hind It. At present the Imincnso trnmo
between these two places has to be ship
ped 1C00 miles by river and then carted
or carried 30 miles over tho Che-ling
mountains, an expensive process even
with coolie labor. The railroad will
shorten the distance to 1200 miles and
do away wllh re-hnndllng. Tho cxlont
of the Chinese government's Interest
In the matter Is shown In Its willingness
to furnish $40,000,000 of the $50,000,000
required to build tho railroad. Tho
railroad company also has concessions

THE CENSUS bulletin on the
drink Industry In the United
States will furnish material
for many temperance lec
tures. In 1900, tho census year, tho con
sumption of liquors containing alcohol
amounted to 1,325,333,094 gallons; 1,198,
602,104 gallons malt, 103,330,423 gallons
distilled liquors and 23,425,567 gallons
wines; an average consumption of 17.3
gallons per capita. Tho product of the
2.3S3 establishments doing more than
$300 btlslncss a year, which was the
limit of the census' investigation,
amounted to $340,615,460, divided as fol
lows: Wines, $0,547,210; distilled
liquors, $96,"0S,443; and malt liquors,
The great increase Is in beer. This
Is fast becoming the universal Ameri
can drink. Deducting exportatlons of
It, the average consumption of beer in
1900 by Americans was 15.7 gallons per
capita. This growth has come about
In comparatively a few years. From
1830 to 1860 It Increased 272 per cent.;
during the next decade it was 161.4 per
cent.; from 1870 to 1SS0, 81.4 per cent.;
1SS0 to 1890, S0.8 per cent., and In the
last decade, 29.8 per cent. While the
percentage of Increase Is falling, the
iate of growth Is yet more rapid than
the growth In population. In 1863 the
total beer production of the United
States was only 2,000,000 barrels; today
It Is In excess of 40,000,000 barrels. In
half a century the number of breweries
has trebled, the capitalization has In
creased more than ono hundred fold,
the number of wage earners Involved
has multiplied more than fifteen times,
wages have multiplied nearly thirty
fold and the value of the product has
multiplied forty fold.
Tho domestic wine Industry dates
back only to I860. Since that time it
has grown rapidly, but notalarmingly.
The consumption per capita is today
less than one-half gallon. Coming to
distilled spirits we have most cause for
congratulation. While beer production
from 1850 to 1860 was increasing 272 per
cent., the production of whisky In
creased only 96.2 per cent.; the next
decade the Increase was only 17 per
cent.; from 1870 to 1S80 the increase was
but little larger, tho decade following
It grew to 153.7 per cent., but last dec
ade It was only 7.1 per cent.. In half a
century the total output in gallons has
not multiplied by five, notwithstand
ing the great increase in population and
the largely Increased use of spirits In
It Is evident from these figures, as It
Is from common observation and a
worldly knowledge of human nature,
that the substitution of malt for splrlt
ous liquors is a substantial victory for
temperance reform. That it has been
hastened by extremist movements, such
ns attempts at state prohibition, may
fairly bo doubted. More probably It
has come through a natural process of
evolution whereby the underlying com
mon sense of the American people hn3
admonished them to cut loose from In
temperate use of strong drink and seek
stimulation, if at all, In tho milder
forms. But whatever the explanation,
the fact itself stands forth conspicu
ously that Intemperance Is on the de
cline. It Is bojng drowned, so to speak,
In a sea of beer.
The United States government spends
hundreds of millions of dollars very
wisely on battleships, forts, batteries
and armies for external defense, yet
when tho educational interests of the
country call for more than a $60,000
annual expenditure In federal aid to
education (the present cost of the bu
reau of education) small economists
object. Tho value of Uncle Sam's pub
lic school plant is nearly $540,000,000
and It takes $213,000,000 a year to run
It, more than 15,000,000 pupils being in
attendance. This large interest, most
vital for Internal defense, Is surely
worth more than $60,000 of the national
It is announced that Attorney Gen
eral Knox will have the aid of Senator
Spooncr In examining tho title of the
Panama Canal compuny, Mr, Spooner,
like Mr, Knox, earned when In private
practice, more than $100,000 a year but
lie will do this work for nothing, while
Mr, Knox will get only his salary as
attorney general, about $150 u week.
Secretary Root is another able lawyer
who loses largely by acceptance of
public office. But really big men seem

"The total exports for last year aggre

will bo a contest In November. Tho vote

"Civil government has now been es
tablished over two years, during which
tlmo there has been a wonderful adapta
bility to free conditions nnd thus far no
serious setback. The new code of laws
are In effect. Tho Island Is now con
trolled by American statutes. There was
a ready adjustment to tho change, and
reports of the operation of the new laws
are gratifying. Tho criminal code, mod
eled largely after tho California penal
laws. Is giving particular satisfaction.
"Porto Ricnns are ambitious for closer
relations with the United States and de
serve all encouragment. In my residence
of over two years In the Island, I found
them generous, warm-hearted, good peo
ple. They aro impressionable, but gentlo

them and the citizens of the mainland.

It will not be lone beforo Porto Rico

for the Philippines, besides the Porto Rl-

"It seems to be now plainly Indicated
that the next national campaign is to bo

Tho Republican party will heartily wel

FUTURE OF JOURNALISM.
From tho World's Work.
Tho period of tho Great Editor tho
man who called on 11 party debate every
morning nnd gave his readers a sort of
continuous gladiatorial performance Is
past. Tho day of tho Sensational Jour
nalist is passing tho man who boasts of
his paper's circulation and of his char
ities becauso other sorts of self-conscious
millionaires also havo risen to play this
sorry game; and tho newspapor brag
gart is ceasing to nttract attention. Mean
while tho conscientious, well-equipped
army of high-minded men who prnctlco
tho profession Is Increasing every year.
Tho truth Is, Journalism Is Just now be
coming for tho fltst tlmo distinctly un in
dependent and attractive profession, It
yet needs a better csptlt de corps, a sense
of professional' dignity, and relief from
tho quacks nnd tho loud advonturors of
tho craft. Thero Is need, too, of htlll
higher pay to those that write well, and
of moro stublo conditions of employment.
But these conditions are following the
moro stable prosperity that tho business
Is taking on.

additional expense is less with us than at most other schools.

Plant, and a new Recitation Hall now being erected, which will
contain fifteen large and fully equipped recitation rooms. In ad

other changes made in the dormitories for the further comfort and
convenience of the pupils of the school.
