ONE OF THEM
Boy Scout Not Military.
Tho leaders of tho Boy Scouts of
America Insist that tho movement is
not military. Upon this point they
linvo issued the following statement:
' Tho primary object of the Boy
Scouts of Amorlca is not military,
Jbut peaco scouting nnd educational
character building for good citizen
ship. The military virtue of obedi
ence, neatness, order, endurance, and
erect nlcrt bearing are, however,
scout virtues. It also appreciates tho
fact that boyhood properly doveloped
nnd cared for will produce cfTiclont
material for tho defense of our land
if this should become necessary. Its
Im thereforo is to center its interests
on the peaco scouting activities that
will fill up tho recreation periods of
a boy's life, and give him tho train
ing which Is necessary to tho devel
opment of an all-around man.
Everything that tenders to develop
l)oys In this manner is good Scout
craft, and tho Boy Scouts of America
insist on tho knowledge of camp
craft, woodcraft, chivalry, live-saving
liersonal hygiene and patriotism be
ing put into the boy's recreation edu
cation in right properties.
Boy Scouts Must Not Carry Kiro
Tho leaders of the Boy Scouts of
America aro taking active measures
to discourage boys from carrying ri
fles and revolvers. Boy 'Scouts are
not supposed to carry arms. When
ever reports come to the National
Headquarters concerning any patrol
or troop of boys who are said to be
carrying rifles, an Investigation is
made at once, and the scout master
or commissioner having supervision
of the boys is asked to see to it that
the boys no longer carry the arms.
Tho report came to headquarters re
cently that a troop of Boy Scouts In
Albany were carrying Springfield
rifles; that their officers were named,
captains, lieutenants, colonels and
tho like. Stralnghtway, James E.
West, Chief Scout Executive, wrote to
E. L. Miller, scout commissioner for
Albany, asking him to investigate the
affair. In this letter he said:
" I am very much surprised that
any scout master should take upon
himself the responsibility of injuring
tho scout movement by having his
boys use rifles when wearing the
scout uniform. As you undoubtedly
know, this Is directly contrary to all
of our regulations and has caused a
great deal of misunderstanding, and
necessarily will hurt us very much.
" Scouting," says Lieut General
Sir Robt. Baden-Powell, "is not as
uomo think, in any way connected
with soldiering. It Is really the work
or Colonial frontiersmen, coupled, In
our case, with a good deal of knight
errantry. That is to say, the boys
learn baokwoodsmanship, and have,
as part of their duty to do a good
turn to a fellow-creature every day.
It Is a method of developing among
boys the manliness nnd character
which are so much needed among our
future citizens. It consists, briefly,
In giving them scouting-craft n place
of loafing or rowdlness, which aro
now becoming so prevalent. To drive
out a bad habit it is necessary to in
culcate a substitute, and scoutcraft Is
tho substitute we suggest. By scout
ing I mean an education in charac
ter outsldo the school walls, as dis
tinct from mere book-learning learn
ed wlhln tho school."
Central's Effort to Control O. & W.
Albany, March 21. Tho appllca
tloo of the New York Central to ac
quire the majority stock of tho Now
York, Ontario and Western was tak
en up yesterday beforo tho Public
Servlco commission. Central's law
yers argued that although testimony
showed that there Is competition be
tween the New York Central and the
Ontario &. Western at Utica, Oneida
and other points, tho ovldence
showed that the amount of such
competitive business Is so Insignifi
cant that it plays no part whatever
In consideration of tho question.
.1. H. Jenkins, of New York, rep
resenting shareholders hording 7,
400 shares of stock, objected to the
granting of tho petition, first, on tho
ground that the proposal was in vio
lation of tho Sherman act; second,
that it would placo tho trackage
rights of the Ontario & Western un
der the control of the Now York
Central, thus causing depreciation
of Ontario & Western stock; and
third, that it would in all probabil
ity result In the loss of 2!i per cent,
of .the coal traffic of the Ontario &
Western, which would be equivalent
to about one million tons a year. He
argued that the only deslro of the
New Haven to sell the Ontario &
Western to 'tho Central was so that
It might obtain control of tho Hut
land and that It proposed to pay
nearly twice as much for tho Rut
land stock as It is now selling for
In the open market. Its desire to
secure the Rutland, ho said, was to
prevent tho Grand Trunk from ob
taining an entrance Into 'Providence
and Boston along exclusive territory
of tho Now Haven.

Strange Car on Eric.
Thousands of passengers going
through tho Erie Railroad terminal
In Jersey City Sunday, were aston
ished by the appearance of a special
car on a sldo track. Along thirty
feet on each side of tho car in gold
letters a foot high was tho name
"The Countess of Warwick."
It Is the car in which tho English
woman will mako a lecture tour of
the United States. It Is provided by
tho New York, Susquehanna and
Western Railroad, controlled by the
Erie, and was used by the late E. 'H.
Harrlman in the daily trips between
Jersey City and his estate at Arden,
N. Y. It is said to be one of the
finest private1 cars in the country,
containing four bedchambers, two
bathrooms, dining room and library,
kitchen and observation parlor.
'But It was tho display of signs on
the car that attracted attention. Be
sides he foot high letters of ho name
of the Countess, which extended half
the length of the car, one whole
window display on each side bore a
rather daring display of the arms of
tho House of Warwick.
It was said at tho station that
none of tho great prima donnas has
ever put their names on their cars.
Somo persons thought the car be
