New York, miulo tin; remark that miM! could not made good by law but they could be prevented from being had by law. The Governor of New York is at the head of an anti- gambliriL' campaign and those words were lined while making a speech on that topic. They hit the nail on the head. Minister Wu, the official reproson- tatm: of China in the United State; can't be fooled by the American ques- tioner. At a banquet in New York re- cently he consented to answer ques- tions from the audience and one fel- low wanted to know if China was like- ly to dry np and if so what would be- come of.the Chinese. Wu hadn't ex- pected such a query but he had an answer on its way back to the rnnn in the audience in an instant. "T don't know what these geologists an thinking responded Wu with a grin. "I don't-see any likelihood o China drying up. For years she has never dried up. But if it should take place, which I hope it neve does, the population would dry up at the same time, so there would be no emigration." The audience laugh- ed till the tears came and the Minister beamed delightedly. The interrogat- or was satisfied that the Chinese were not so slow as some people try to out. But the Bryan admirer accepted the challenge, and has faithfully kept his compact through all the defeats of the "inspired son." He hopes Bryan may be elected this fall, but he looks rath- er wistful when he discusses his chances. "If you get tin's story up right, and don't stretch it too said Mr. Robertson to his inti rviexver, "I'm going to semi Mr. Bryan a copy of the paper and ask him if it isn't about an hour or so. The city should do as much as pos- sible to keep the, square from looking like a howling wilderness, even if it does belong to the company. A S-t-at barren, brown spot in the middle the city is no mark of beauty. A little juice pumped on onre in a. while will do a whole lot to improvre.
