time to settle before the Winter freezes begin1It makes a good solid foundation when worked in dry weather and then it is a leisure time and easier for overseers to get hands to come in promptly We be

EQUITABLE CASE Higgins Sends the State In surance Superintendents RaIport to District Attorney The Governor Says the Matter Cans Not lie Laid Before the Extra Legislative Session A Final Report Will Be Made By tha Superintendent in Regard To the Equitable Life Society in About Six Months Albany N Y June 23That Gov HIggins regards the report of Insur ance Superintendent Hendricks upon Ithe Equitable Life Assurance society as worthy of the attention of the criminal authorities of New York county was made plain by him when he broke his silence on the subject of the Equit able situation Ly a reference to the commandment Thou shalt not steal as having been among the laws violat ed in the management of the insurance company ad by the announce ment that he hiJ sent a copy of the report to District Attorney Jerome The text of the Icier follows hI herewith enclose for your consid eration a copy of he preliminary re port of the superintendent of insur J ance upon the affairs of the Equitable Life Assurance society of New York The findings set forth in the report are based on evidence taken by the superintendent under the insurance laws Legal Evidence i1ay Be Submitted- If in your judgment any of the al leged facts established by legal evi dence would constitute criminal mis conduct in the county of New York on the part of any person I will if you desire request the superintendr ent to submit to you the evidence ta ken before him The governor was asked whether legislative action could be taken upon this report- uThis is only a preliminary report J1er p1iedIn my Judgment the legislature should not and would not act before receiving the final report The investigation of the case of the Mu tual Life Insurance Co occupied between four and five months and Mr Hendricks tells me that he believes the Equitable investigation will take as long This you see would mako it out of the question to submit tho Equitable matter to the present extra ordinary session

Julius M Mayer arrived here from Washington and will remain in town several days in I vestigating Equitable affairs In an interview Mr Mayer said It is manifest that the people throughout the whole country are profoundly interested in the affairs of the Equitable Life Assurance society Therefore I think it fitting to say that appropriate steps will be speedily ta ken by me First to accomplish the return to the Equitable of any profits wrongfully made or retained by reason of trust relations or otherwise Second to debar from holding office in this company any person who has been faithless

beverages First No total abstainer ever becomes a drunkard and total abstinence removes this danger altogether This consideration is sufficient motive to induce men and women and boys and girls to look not upon the wine when J it is red when it gives color in the cup when it moveth itself aright for at the last it biteth like a serpent and stingeth like an adder Moderate drinking precedes drunkenness It is best andsafest not to have anything to do with3the deadly stuff Second On account of the in fluence that one is liable to exer cise upon another it is expedient not to drink intoxicants at all Every life touches some other life and makes an impression up on it either forjgood or evil If it be granted that a given indij vidual is drinbnk in moderation and never get drunk the example might lead some weaker person to start in on the moderatejidea but soon land jn the lap of excess and finally wind up in utter ruin And such a one might be a very close and dear friend of the man whose ex ample started him in the down ward course Third It has been demonstrat ed again that the abstainer is better off in point of health than the moderatejdrinker Statistics gathered by clife insurance com panics show that this is true and it cuts a figurelin the matter ofI life insurance risks the abstainer being regarded as a much better risk than the fmoderate drinker It has been shown by actual exI Pthmore exposure and more fatigue than one who drinks in modera j6tionFourth It avoids an unneces sary outlayjof money One whbj drinks regularly even in moder ation would be surprised at th results if he should count up the expense of it for a year Prob ably three drinks a day would be drinkingband that would run up to 5475 in a year and in forty years it would amount to 2190 Interest on this sum at 6 per cent for half the time hich is isbasisto 2628 and the principal and interest would be 4618 the sum squandered in a lifetime f drink with absolutely no returns unless they be evil ones Fifth It would discourage and cripple a great evil and encours age and strengthen that which would be of incalculable benefit to mankind namely a univers prohibition sentiment Every inJ dividual owes it to the society of which he is a part to do all he can for the betterment of the gener community The Christian ciple is that no one is to look sin111 ply on his own things but on the things of others also Perhaps the saloon could not live without the moderate drinker and if this be true the moderate drinker responsible for the saloon with all of its horrible evils Clipper Jap Army Dr Frederick J Stanley of Philadelphia who formerly be longed to the faculty of the Uni versity of Tokio attributes Ja 1 pans commanding position to ed ucation and devotion to the Em1 P Jeror contains the smallest percentage of persons unable to read and write of any country on the globe Only 6 per centof her people are illit erate compared with 82 per cent in Russia The Japanese army is

dies he will be added to the list of deities So great is the reverence for the Emperor that he has only to express a wish to be obeyed Decrees are not necessary nor in accordance with the Japanese idea of courtesy For instance when the Emperor in 1878 concluded that the interests of the Empire would gain by a general observ ance of the Sabbath he made known his wish to that effect and since that time Sunday has been as much a day of rest in Ja pan as in any other Christian country The spread of Christi anity among the Japanese has been rapid Of the seven most prominent military men now con ducting the war six are Christ raps The famous Admiral Togo is a Presbyterian elder During his attendance at the Annapolis Naval Academy 30 years ago his interest in the Y MkC A affairs was so great that he was made president of that organization The Emperor and his cabinet have shown their respect for Christianity by directing that interpreters for war correspondents shall be taken only from among the members of the Y M C A and Epworth Leagues This is done for the purpose of insuring reliability Dr Stanley says Japan deserves victory Russia while nominally a Christian country is far

upon a Chinese Judge at the Palace of Justice It was summer weather and one side of the building was entirely open to the courtyard through which one entered the building In this courtyard there w ere about twenty criminals in various stage- of dirt and dilapidation Some were in stocks some had each thumbsuspended by a string to a beam so that they knelt with outstretched arms like scarecrows t all had their hair unshaven and matted and their faces so caked with dust as to have lost the look of humanity Inside the courthouse Judges of various de grees were seated on benches behind long desks just as they do in England the only difference was that they wore gorgeous silks and drowsily drank tea from little China basins to while away the afternoon After some conversation it oc curred to the chief Judge that we might like to see a trial So he called for No 19 A pitiful figure came in dragging its shackles heavily over the floor and then knelt on the far side of the desk The visitors were accommodated on the bench itself Then the Judge leaned over the desk and glaring angrily through his spectacles at the cowering creature in front of him told him the story of his crime which the prisoner must have heard ad nauseam since he had been in Court for two years The trial proceeded somewhat in this man nerJudgeOn such and such day two carts were going to t village of Yingpan The

broken off so to speak while the tendant went for the implement of torture A little stool was brought to which the prisoners hand was tied palm upward and then the bamboo was brought down with vigor upon the poor wretchs wrist He howled lugubriously but made no signs of confession and thanks to our presence the performance was cut short This man had been in prison for two years and still had not confessed Sooner or later however he would give in and then his great day would come Preceded by trumpeters and flags he would ride through the city on his tumbrel the observed of all observers he would be taken to the potters field outside the walls and there before a crowd of spectators he would suffer death for a crime which in all probability he had never com matted That last day is a blessed relief and for the most part the prisoners go to their end laughing and chatting with the crowd It is better of course to confess quickly and be done with it Yet instinct of self preserva

White In these latter days of Spring when there is due the heartwarming whistle of Bob White in search of a mate it is to be feared that many a lane and fence tangle well used to the cheery call will be silent The Winter of 19034 was a desperately hard season in many parts of America on nonmigratory birds that feed on the ground The blizzards of 19045 have been eVen worse in nearly every part of the Union When 50000 cattle die of cold within two weeks in only a part of Kansas and Nebraska what chance has Bob White to getthat plentiful sup ply of weed seeds berries grubs and wheat gleanings that he must have to keep him from freezing Last Febru ary quail were found frozen in South EnglandIcut the species has suddenly become extinct Bob White can stand any degree of cold any depth of snow for a short time Halfstarved through long lying hardfrozen snows he loses the power of resistance and gives up the- unequal struggle Lovers of this mag countryIMany of these survivors exist only through the charity of the country folk and sportsmen who guarded and fed them last Winter It is in pleasant contrast with our usual neglect of na tures bounty to see how many individuals and associations and game wardens took up this rescue work with the birds last Winter In Maryland the game warden had his deputies pur chase grain and feed the birds in Illi noise the game commissioner used in this way 5000 of the funds at his dis posal but most has been done by game associations and private individuals In New England some of Bob Whites admirers have invented an inclined trough with pockets for the grain to be held at various heights so as to get above successive layers of snow With some brush thrown about them those troughs saved numbers of totally wild quail The birds would feed about the sanctuary for two or three hours each day and then fly back to their Winter refuge in the swamp American sportsmen and still more Americans who disapprove of field sports are prone to show horror at the English guns brag of a thousand birds a day We have however something to learn from that same Englishman he carefully and scientifically feeds and protects the gamebirds and each year he sees that two partridges are reared for each one he killed last season Country Calendar My Old Kentucky Hills The cow bells tinkle tinkle And the zephyrs whisper low Some dear but fading story

meeting of the Russian and the Japanese plenipotentiaries will not be held before August at the earliest and in all probability not until Septem ber the chances are that the passage of events in the mean time will greatly simplify their workThe armies of Oyama and Len evitch which have been in touch for months are now in motion and affairs between the outposts are of daily occurrence Re ports from St Petersburg are to the effect that Linevitch is awaiting the final result with confidence and news from Tokio tells of oyamas desire for a de cisive engagement before an ar mistice can be arranged It may be accepted as true that Japan recognizes the advantage that would be given her in enforcing her demands in case of the defeat of the Russian ar my and that the Mikados Government will impose no check on the wishes of oyama should he determine to put the present military situation to an immedi ate test Unfortunately for Russia the same lack ofability to size up conditions that has been apparent in all other stages of the war appears to exist in equal degree at the present time and there seems no disposition on the part of the Muscovite Government to avoida conflict from which she has so much to lose Under ex isting conditions France is about the only country that can deal directly with Russia and by use of the financial thumbscrew force her into the adoption of a policy in better accord with her present necessities The war was not of Japans choosing nor is it to be expected that she will end it of her own accord short of every advantage to be secured If danger of further disaster is to be averted the move should come from Russia and come quickly Louisville Times Nice civilized country this The limb on which a negro was hang ed a lynching some time ago in a

States cavalry arrived at Ft Snelling from Ft Apache Ariz last Monday morning We had just finished a days journey t five which was a march across the plaines of Arizona and weo l were too fatigued to take part in flagday parade and celebration We spent the day in unpacking our belongings and arranging our new quarters ii There are one hundred and eighteen men in the two troops Captians C A Hedekin and AaE Williams are in command ing the short leave of absence of Maj Andrus who will assume command of the troops in a few daysMost of the boys were tired after their journey but other wise in good spirits as we were glad to get into our new commo dious quarters after a stay by some of them three years only one and onehalf years myself in Apache Ariz which I de scribe as away out of the world The troops left Fort Apache ten fdays ago The five days march across the plaine was not particularly hard on us but it was not a pleasure trip by no means The horses suffered a good deal as it was very hot and drySince we arrived many people have sympathized with us for having to spend our time in such a place We are all glad to come here for the quarters are so much better everything is brand new and uptodate At Apache our quarters were mostly bad We arrived in St Paul from Kansas City at 8 oclockand reached Ft Snelling at 11 a m and ate dinner with the Tenth Battery of Artillery The St Paul people are not likely to see any cavalry drill this summer as we left our horses be hind us Uncle Sam wont al low any horses to be taken from that Fort as they all suffer more or less with a contagious disease known as glanders As the Third Cavalry will leave San Francisco for the Philippines December 31 1 it is improbable that horses will be purchased for us while here t The two troops contain a nUll ber of crack athletes who will enter the annual outdoor field meet at the post the latter part of the month I am confident that we can carry away a majori ty of the prizes We have a ten r second runner who beat everything in the southern division at Denver Col last July and also have a number of fast hurdlers IIbesides being strong in the weights and jumps During our stay in Apache we organized our own libraries with a superintendent at the head Each mem he r contributed a montJkept on hand a large suply of monthly and weekly magazines besides a number of daily papers- I am well

your living expenses daily though a healthy debt is good if you have 2 made to pay a 1 debt Collecting is the true secret of a business pans success It is a bad policy to fallout with your banker and change your account The bank left will give you a bad name Fight it out with your bank it will be better in a long life time Never consent to arbitrate a case for two of your friends un less they will consent in writing that your decision shall be final and that there shall be no appeal In business always remember you make your living honest out of your friends not your enemies Strive daily to make friends Shun a loud talker ordinarily they talk too much Words once spoken can never be recalled The man who talks his busi ness indiscriminately very soon does not have any business to talk A wise man keeps his business to himself Men are but grown up children Be scrupulously careful in making promises to always keep them with the young middle aged or old i Politeness is the cheapesfom modlty in the largest dividends and it is de yourdailyPay your laborer promptly for services rendered He or she needs the money for daily ex penses You get better servic and more satisfaction For services rendered as agent never under any circumstances tak a fee on both sides in a transaction It will sooner or later be found Out aiid will do you great harm Be particularly careful of the company you keep businessmen are watching Ex v fe Nr f z f 1j 1 Japs as Ball PlayersI The Japanese as players of baseball are the subject of these Qbserv tionsbyan American naval officer recently back from a cruise in the East The Jap anese are great ball players and theyare true sportsmen Even the umpire is safe over there They never dispute decisions and when the game is over they treat their opponents with great hospitality Teachers in many of their schools have been edu in the United States and ave introduced the sport into the flowery kingdom and the eople have taken to it readily They are not good at football being too light but they are much better than would be expected on the diamond At- elding they are fine If ever a y is batted out the batter as well go to the bench They are airlygood at the bat and their reat weakness is in pitching Somehow they have not caught the great trickoWhen the Japs play they dont wear shoes and their headgear is a long Japanese towel worn as a negro mammy wears a bandanna Their masks and gloves are made in Japan and closely resemble the American At Tokio I have seen 10000 people at a game and every time a good play was made no matter by whom they would be invited to a regular feast at which the American and Jap anese flags weuld be crossed and everybody would be made to feel like a hero The Japanese do not play quite as well as the Hawaiians When our fleet put in at Honolulu a picked team from all the fleet went ashore and played the natives losing the game though there were sever al good players in the naval clubICity There is not another

has been definitely decided that Washington will be the scene of the peace negotiations between Russia and Japan The Japanese Government preferred Che Foo as- a meeting place while Russia preferred a meeting in any European capital and it was then agreed that Washington should be the point of negotiating It is expected that within a few days the names of the plenipotentia ries will be made public
