America's Future Development
By CHARLES STELZLE
'IlE United States has today an area nearly four nnd n half tltnca as
groat as it was In 17S3. In 1S03, with tho Louisiana purchase, tho ter
ritory of this country wns moro than doubled. Steadily wo hnvo grown
until in 1004 tho Pannmn cnnnl 7.0110 of 14S square miles was ncqulred. This
latest acquisition will mean moro to tho United States than tho mere saving
of time in transporting freight. It will somo day figure significantly in com
manding tho Pacific ocean, the futuro battleground of tho world, for In this
arena Russia, Japan, Chlnn nnd tho United States will determine whether
tho world Is to bo dominated by the Anglo-Saxon race or by a nation which
is foreign to most of tho ideals which have nindo America great nnd powerful.
'Xhomns Cnrlylo ouco said, "Vo may boast o' ycr dlinocracy or any ithcr
'cracy or nny kind o" polcetlcal rooblsh, but the reason why ycr Inboring folk

LABOR SHORTAGE HINDERS
RECRUITING FOR U. S. NAVY
Officers Find Harvest Fields Appeal
More Than tho Sea.
The general shortage in tho labor
supply all over tho country Is causing
the navy department considerable dif
ficulty in its efforts to increase enlist
ments. There now exists a shortago of 5,034
men, this shortage including the 4,000
additional men allowed flic navy by
act of congress In tho session just con
cluded. Naval olllcers on recruiting duty re
port that they are confronting a tre
mendous shortago of labor all over the
country, but moro especially In the mid-
In Illinois it Is estimated that there
is a demand for 80,000 in uddition to
those available. In Iowa, Minnesota
and the Dakotas tho deficiency in farm
laborers is estimated at 50,000. Texas
employers are said to bo paying the
lines of vagrants in order that they
may put them to work on tho farms.
Harvest and other farm hands nro be
ing offered as high ns a day in inairy
localities, nnd common labor is getting
$2 and ?3 n day and transportation in
the Mississippi valley.
Naval olllcers believe, however, that
with the end of the harvesting season
hundreds of young men who havo been
taking advnntago of this great demand
for labor will turn to tho navy.
Tho naval advertising campaign will
then bo renewed with vigor. New re
cruiting stations will bo established at
Denver, Salfl.ake City and Hlchmond,
Va. Traveling parties nro already on
the road through various states seeking
enlistments, and already a gain has
been reported. The shortage is partly
due to tho tremendous lullux into the
navy in 100S nnd tho resultant expira
tion of hundreds of enlistments tills
sailors havo had their noildny asnore.

WILLS 18 HOMES TO TENANTS
Death of Landlord Reveals Remark
William Hawkins of Philadelphia, a
wealthy leather goods manufacturer,
who died in 1010 at tho ngo of ninety
eight years, surprised eighteen families
by bequeathing to them the houses In
which they llvo nnd for which for
years they paid rent to Mr. Hawkins.
Although Mr. nawklns has been dead
for two years his will wns not offered
for probnto until recently, when the
mystery regarding tho houses was ex
plained. For two years the tenants of
the eighteen houses havo been sending
their rent regulnrly to tho agent of the
dead manufacturer, only to have it re
turned by mail with a note saying no
rent wus duo.
The eighteen houses nre valued at
about ?4,000 each. All of them were
subject to ground rent, but n few days
before the death of Mr. nawklns ho
paid tills off, had tho deeds executed,
leaving tho beneficiaries with clear
