‘Washington, Nov. 24.—It is no joke
to the congressmen that they will
lose their mileage because it has been
decreed that there shall be no ad-
journment before the regular session
begins next month. Probably the
larger number of the Senators ana
Representatives have been obliged to
go home to attend to private or pub.
lic business, or both, and they have
had to put up for th expense out of
their own pockets, with no prospect
of being reimbursed. The item of
twenty cents per mile allowed them
for traveling is not very important
to those who live at no great dis-
tance, but to the members on the
Pacifie Coast it comes to $1,200 or
$1,300 for each term, and of eourse
that sum is missed when it is with-
Attempts haye been made to cut
down the rate of mileage but with-
out success. The result of cutting it
would be to discourage some mem-
bers from bringing their families to
Washington with them, amd as Con-
gressman Mann of Illinois remarked
when the subject was being discussed
on the floor of the House, itis better
for members to have their families
with them. However, it occurs to
‘one to ask why Congress should not
be a Tittle more liberal with other
pul servamts for traveling expenses.
3Také our Oensuls, for example. They
are ‘allowed but ome fourth as mmeh
as Members of Congress, «or five cents
per mile, and frequently this will not
cover 'the bare epst of the comsul’s
individuell fare, mot to mention that
of transporting his wife, family, and
possibly chattels, to his post of ‘duty.
However, thereiis a disposition in the
business "world to ask that CGengress
show more libsrality to the Ceasular
Servige, which is largely instrumen-
tal in building up our immense for-
‘eign trade of “over four billions of
dollars a year.
The foreign trade of Great Britain
is-about five billions of dollars a year,
and that ofthe United States is gain-
ing on it steadily. In the promotion
-of the expovt business of thie country
the State\ Department has accom-
plished a igleat deal, mostly through
the ‘consular\ service and the Presi-
dent is desirous" of extending it to a
further degree, He has approved of
‘a proposition to\establish.e corps of
consular agents at foreign capitals,
with the idea that they shall work in
conjunetion with the eomsuls. If the
right kind of men shall be sent abroad
this plan will prove of great advant-
‘age to American exporters. Germany
J probably has the best system of this
kind at present, and her foreign trade
is going .ahead by leaps aml bounds.
-Binee the Consular Serwice was put:
under:2ivil service regulapions, it has
greatly improved, and a better class
«of men: has been sent to fereign coun-
tries. :Some of the oldereonsuls pro-
bably -ought to be remewed for the
good.of the service, but en the other)
hand, Congress should provide some |\
form.ef retirement for cemsuls, who
receive. but a modest rate.of pay and
and can hardly keep up the appear-
ancessdemanded of them by the Gov-
ernment and lay aside amything on retire. They should be teat-
«©d as the Army and, Navy, at
Jdeast. :
American trade agencies have been
formed abroad, ome of the first of
these being the American «Chamber
of Commerce in Paris, feunded in
1894. Since'then other similar organ-
izations .have been formed at, Berlin,
Naples, Constantinople and .one is
Proposed for Rio de Janeiro.
The study of foreign commerce is
both interesting and profitable. This
country farnishes three-fourths of

world, yet thesbiggest trade in <otton

Wilson Still Thinks Huerta Will Re-
1 tire—Hale’s Break with Carranza
Renews Dictator’s Hope of Re-
maining—Can’t Defer Longer.
Washington, Nov. 20.—When it be-
came known that the British govern-
ment had ordered three warships to
Mexican waters something akin to a
sensation was caused in Washington,
and it is certain that this unexpected
step has great significance. It was
only on October 28 that the Secre-
tary of State announced that Great
Britain, France and Germany had
been asked by the United States to
take no action in Mexico until they
heard further from the United States,
and that each of those countries had
agreed to do this.
It was definitely understood at the
ine that Secretary Bryan approached
these European countries becsuse of
aotivity which he believed to be
threatened. There was certainly
much evidence of European dissatis-
‘taction over the course the United
‘States was following, and it was ex
pected that the representation made
‘to Europe by Mr. Bryan would be
followed by come @canite action.
Such, however, has mot been the
result, and conseguently the dispatch-
ing of British warships to Mexican
waters, hitherto sedulously avoided
by British ships, arouses comment
and speculation. The speculation ex-
tends even to the corclusion that the
British govermment ‘is tired of Amer
‘can inactivity’ and has decided to
look after its ‘own interests in Mex
‘co without deferring to President
Wilson’s policy, ‘or to the prestige
America is supposed to have in Latin
American affairs.
President Wilson has some reason
to beljeve that .before long Victoriamo
Huerta, dictator of Mexico, will retire
from the office to which he so tena-
ciously clings in utter defiance of the
wishes of this government. Therein
lies the reason for the optimism
which has pervaded official circles in
the face of bad news from unofficial
sources in Mexico City.
Despatches from Mexico City “indi
cate that Huerta is more determined
than ever ‘to ignore the demands
made by the United States. He will
not resign the presidency and both
his cabinet and the new Mexican con-
gress are expected to. lend their ap-
proval to his defiance.
The provisional Presidents latest
move is to accuse an American offi.
‘cial, United States Consul-General
Hanna, at Monterey, of aiding rebels.
Despatches from Nogales report
«that William Bayard Hale's wegotia
tions with General Carranza ' have
been a complete failure.

British Shipbroker Does Not Look
for Great Trade Increass mt
London, Nov. 20.—Howard Houlder,
of Messrs. Howard Houlder and Part.
ners, shipbrokers, in an inaugural ad.
dress ‘at the Institute of Shipbrokers,
said the opening of the Panama ‘Canal
might lead to a result exactly the
opposite to ‘what apparently some of
the large lines expected, in so far as
they were adding to their tonnage on
the score of increased traffic when
the canal opened.
It seemed to him that the question
was one of population on the other
side of the canal and that they were
not going to have any great increase
in the volume of trade until the Pa.
cific coast, both north and south, had
a very much larger population than
it had at present. :

LESSON TEXT—Joshua 37-17.
GOLDEN TEXT—"Fear thou not for 1
am with thee.”—Isa. 41:10.
The spies sent out by Joshua (ch.
2) were animated by quite a different
motive than that which’ governed
those who first visited Canaan, and
they brought back a much different
report (Num. ch. 13). The story of
their experience in Jeriche’ with Ra-
hab, their escape from her house, and
the incident of the “scarlet thread,”
will prove an interesting introduction
for today’s lesson. There are two
suggestions in the preparation for the
crossing of the Jordan mentioned in
the first seven verses of this chapter:
(1) It was to be an orderly advance
(v. 4); mo disorderly crowding about
those who led. This was also to be a
sure path, though they had not passed
that way before, for God was leading,
(2) It was to be a prayerful advance
(v. 5). Literally, they were to “un-
dertake great things for God and to
expect great things from God.”
Jesus Must Lead.
i. The Leader, vv. 7, 8. The cir
cumstances surrounding this episode
are far different from those at the
grossing of the Red sea. Moses’ en-
‘counter with Pharaoh had stamped
him as the one who should save the
nation. True, in the battles and im
his association with Moces Joshua
had occupied a position of leadership,
but now he is to deliver Israel from
the death of the wilderness inte ‘the
life and possessions of Canaan, hence
the words, “I will magnify thee in
the sight of all Israel.” It is motice-
able, however, that Joshua did not
lead this forward march, but Tather
the priests. The ark which they bore
is a type of Christ and he must al-
ways lead. Jehovah magnified Joshua
because Joshua had magnified Jeho-
vah, see I. Sam. 2:30, John 17:4, 5.
Il. Those Led, vv. 9-13. Jo
once communicates Jehovah’s order
for a forward march to the ‘people (I.
Thess. 2:13). But God graciously ac-
companies his word by a visible mani-
festation of his presence (v. 10, 11)
cf. I. John 1:1, Col. 2:9. It was the
word and presence «of ‘the “living
God” (v. 10) that was ‘to work this
miracle, and to accomplish the victo-
rious possession of the land in ac-
cordance with his own sure promise.
This lesson is a great lesson of
types. God, through the leading of
his priests bearing the ark (a type of
Christ), leads man from the failures
of his wilderness experience, through
death (the Jordam), into newness of
life (C#naan), Rom. ‘6:4,°9. Previous:
ly the mention of the names of these
enemies (v. 10) had ‘so frightened
Israel that they turned aside in a
panic, but Israel had ‘been learning
in the bitter school of .discipline and
failure. “The Lord of :all the earth”
(v. 11) is to lead, why then fear?
There was, however, to be a test, viz.,
the path was not to open until their
feet were in the waters. There was
no such test at the Red: sea, for they
did not then have sufficient faith, I.
Cor. 10:13, I. Peter 1:7.
‘Israels One Way.
Il. The Dry Ground, wy. 14-17. Up
until the moment they stepped into
the water, priest amd people alike re-
lied upon the bare word of Jehovah,
I. Sam. 15:22. We, too, will surely
find a way of escape if ‘we yield him
implicit obedience, Isa. 43:2; I. Cor.
10:13. As if to heighten ‘this miracle
we need to remember it ‘was the sea-
son of flood tide {w. 15). The river
