Num Bah 53 astern trip has strengthened him president declares he returns Washington feeling cheered and encouraged speeches made in Illinois addresses at Waukegan Lake Forest and Evanston left for the fast yesterday likening. Of Imago oct. 18.�?the train bearing the presidential party from the North slipped into Chicago at 2 4n yesterday afternoon was transferred to the Michigan Central tracks and left for Michigan Points and the East immediately. Winn the train arrived at the Northwestern station there was not a Large gathering of people As few apparently knew that the president was to arrive. President Mckinley did not appear Ami no speeches were made. V few friends entered the president s tar during tin ten minutes wait and greeted him. The train was then transferred to tile Michigan Central tracks and left at once for Kalamazoo mich., and the East. I he presidential train after leaving Milwaukee made a Short Stop at tidally and slowed lip at South Milwaukee. I lie president did not make a speech at either place. Stops were made at Racine and Kenosha wis., where the president talked briefly. I Here were Large crowds in attendance at both places and the utmost enthusiasm was shown. The members of the Cabinet were introduced and spoke briefly. After crossing the Wisconsin line stops were made at Waukegan Lake Forest and Evanston. Ii where the president made Brief speeches. At Pacino president Mckinley said in part a i have no sympathy with that sentiment which would Divide my countrymen Tito classes. I have no sympathy with that sentiment which would put the Rich Man on one Side Ami the poor Inton on the inline re labor on one Side and capital on the other applause because All of them Are equal before the Law All of them have equal Power in the conduct of the government. In very mans vote Iii the United states is the equal of every other on that supreme Day w Hen w e choose presidents and congresses and governors and Legislatures. Apple use our citizens accumulate great wealth Anil Many of them do. But they cannot take it with them nor eau they entail it from generation to generation. He who inherits it must keep it by his own prudence or sagacity of lie does not it is divided up among his there was an immense crowd at Waukegan hundreds of school children Viking massed about the platform from which the president spoke. He said a i never meet my countrymen in Idie Assembly that i Ani not assisted the great responsibilities which by your Suffrages i am carrying rho counsels of the people in a government like ours is always commanding. I be will of the people is the Law of the land and i am glad to be advised by them always what they think is right and what is Best Iii administration of the government. For after All the great body of the people have a single interest that of having their government wisely and faithfully and Horn stir administered. They have Little care for Mere individuals except As this individual or that individual May serve them Best and la St represent the principles that Are dear to them in governmental policy. Above All else you want your government administered w Ith integrity and for the equal Liene fit of All. You want your not to the representative of one class of people but of All the people and to embody the Best Aims Aud noblest. Aspirations of All the people. A and so i shall go Back to the great duties of my office cheered by your encouraging words strength healed by your Happy faces Iii which i read Devotion to country and an increasing love for our free institutions. I shall go Back feeling that i carry with me the purpose which Are in your hearts. Ami if i con carry those purposes into Public administration then i will have achieved tin highest office of a Public servant. A i cannot my fellow citizens misread your purpose or your Conception of Public duty. I am endeavouring As i am i min my to do by the Constitution of the United stats. To execute the Laws in every foot of territory that belongs to us. Rebellion has been raised against your authority in a territory that u As much our own As Alaska tithe District of Columbia or any territory of the i 11it�?��i states. Ami that rebellion will be put Down and the authority of the United states will in a people say the pre Ion an unholy War Iii a unholy War to Banner Vav High i in e their hands and Are chiefly of men of dutch descent anti mein hers of the afrikaner bund. A the Only difference among us a said one of them recently is t ii a t some of us Are More bund than others but we i Are All their natural sympathies go out to i in ref re to their of n race and blood. I the Boers of the Transvaal. Yet they j Are Bourn by their oaths of allegiance and of office Aud by personal interest to be Loyal to the British Empire. Their position has not been an enviable one All through the i British Transvaal controversy. Now that War has let gun it is Little Short of pitiable. No doubt every Man of them would like to lie out of office. For if they remain in they must move actively against their own Kindred. There can be no such thing As neutrality. They must either be foes to their own race and Kin or traitors to tile Crown. It should be frankly said that thus far the ministry has acquitted itself uncommonly Well. Its influence has been constantly for peace and Justice. Neither briton nor Boer has had ground for fault finding. For this much of the credit must be Given to the prime minister. Or. Schreiner a brother by the a Way and not. As some have said tile husband of mrs. Olive Schreiner Uron Wright is a Man of narrow views Ami hesitating manner but he is intelligent honest above All suspicion and absolutely Loyal to Bis High ideals lie is an afrikaner but lie has always held his Secretary ship above the influx Knees of the bund. It May be added that he used to be a close Friend and Hearty supporter of or. I Ceil Rhodes and that lie saw no incompatibility Between British imperialism and the afrikaner bund. This last remark May also be applied to tilt attorney general. Or. Solomon w to indeed used to rank As a More ardent imperialist thy ii or. Rhodes himself. On tin other hand the treasurer. Or. Merrimac who is not of dutch blood but English is actually More Boorish than a Dom Paul Quot himself though his ardor against the British Empire has been Well kept in Cheek by his colleagues. The commissioner of Lam and railway -. Or. Sauer is a strange anomaly to wit a Cape dutchman who does not hate the negroes but is their Friend Anil Champion. He sides strongly with the Boers against great Britain. The minister agriculture or. He Holt is a dutchman with Strong Boer sympathies and so is the minister without a portfolio. Or. The water. We May reckon therefore that it is or Schreiner backed by or. Solomon. W to has held the ministry in line for loyalty to the government under which it holds its commission. How much longer or Schreiner eau do this is an interesting question As is also How Long the British government will care to have him do so. Iii the present emergency sir Alfred Milner and or. It Ham Erlain must have a ministry at Cape town that can lie absolutely depended upon. It would not be pleasant to dismiss this one without cause for that would alienate friends and emitter a ape politics. Yet it is not satisfactory to know that of the six chief men in the Cape government four Are in Hearty sympathy with those who Are waging War against the British Empire.

I Newell Hydro Grapher of the United states geological Survey claims to have designed a system of conduits by which it is practicable to irrigate tin Large arid lands in the various states. Outlining his plan. Professor Newell says a for years plans have been discussed by members of the United states geological Survey relative to the reclaiming of vast tracts of arid land Iii the West but not until lately has a plan been made which will bring the important project within the Bounds of practicability. The difference has heretofore lain in the fact that from the investigations of the division of hydrography most of the water which can easily be taken from perennial streams has already been appropriated but the flood Waters and til Large Rivers run mainly to waste. To conserve and utilize these works of considerable magnitude must be built requiring the expenditure of Large sums of Money. Experience has shown that great enterprises of this kind have not in the past been financially successful to the owners although of great value to the Community where built. In other words the Community gets the Benefit while the investor unwillingly becomes a philanthropist. A Elf we Are to continue As in the past to Transfer tin surplus labor of the in to the surplus agricultural lands of the West. It must be done by state or National supervision. Private Enterprise has too often suffered financially to continue this Beneficent course. Hut i have at Hist conceived a plan by which the great Rivers May in utilized to water this vast Region of Fertile country. My project Calls for tile construction of a Mammoth system conduits by the government which will abundantly Supply the arid territory with moisture. A of course the work of flu geological Survey is primarily that of ascertaining the facts and clashes of land Iii the National Domain. Beyond of taming and recording these conditions the Survey has really nothing to do with the problem of reclamation for this is a matter for Congress to determine but As action by that body must be based upon intelligent opinion. All reasonable Effort Quot have been made by the geological department to Lay the facts before the people in order that a Wise policy might result. Vast area of vacant land. Quot fully one third of the area of the United states exclusive of Alaska. Consists of vacant lands belonging to the people of the United states As a whole and being at the disposal of Congreve. There Are. Of course additional unused areas belonging to individuals and corporations but these Are Small compared to the vast body of Public land open to entry and settlement under the Homestead and other Law the greater part of this great extent of land is vacant not because of the sterility of the soil but because of the fact that droughts prevail and the Supply of moisture is too scanty for the production of crops valuable to Man. A a i he aridity of the Region is due not so much to Complete absence of water As to Iii fact that Rains occur at irregular intervals and the torrents pass off rapidly to tile sea without thoroughly moistening the ground. By conserving the water and saving the available Supply until the time of need Many acres of land can be reclaimed. The land thus relieved from the curse of aridity is found More productive than that of the humid Region and with the continuous Sunshine of the West. Several crops can be produced during each season. If is thus possible i to provide water Supply such that a j population As urge As that East of the Mississippi liver eau be supported Iii tin West provided that a Wise treatment is Given to the use and distribution of the water. A the United states geological stir j Rev has since its organization devoted its energies towards investigating the j resources of the country and portico j Early. Those of the West where the j great body of Public lands is situated. Under its former eminent director Majo i Powell much attention was j Given to the question of irrigation 1 and through his efforts the people of j the United states gained their first a j curate knowledge of the possibilities of the reclamation of the arid regions la instituted the systematic mapping of the country and Laid the foundation for the exact work now being brought toward completion by Bis successor j Cha re Quot i. Walcott. Iii the fall of 1ks8 lie found that til study of the water j resources if the country might Well be j specialized from the More Genera work of mapping or examining rocks j and. Therefore created what is known j As the division of hydrography. This i has been for ten years under my direction. And i have carried on measurements of the principal Rivers of the West As Many streams of importance Iii water Power development in the East. A j Arach Tate and territory systematic measure aleut s of the flow of various Rivers have been made and computations prepared showing the discharge Day by Day throughout the year. Reservoir Sites have also been examined and where practicable have been surveyed and. Iii Many cases the Cost of construction Esti mated. The occurrence of water under ground has been a matter of careful study and particularly the conditions governing Artesian flows. There has thus been gathered a mass of information concerning the availability of Waters such As to rentier a kissable a knowledge of the extent to which water can be had for irrigation anti for Powers and it is hoped that the government will soon begin Active measures for the reclaiming of this vast wealth along the lines of the report soon to be made by this 30ers repulsed by the British found mite.

He is particularly bearish in regard to j the Industrial stocks. To justify his position or. Keene has Issue the following statement a perhaps men at the present level of prices a Stock might be found Here and there which would furnish a fair Opportunity to a buyer were it not for the enormous increase in the new securities Iii the last fifteen the consolidation into trusts of nearly All the principal Independent manufacturing concerns in every Branch of Trade Iii the United states with Stock issues of Over $ ,50d,0o0.im>0, half of which May be fairly put Down As fictitious capital. A during this period the increase of Money in circulation in the United states had Mirely been .?140. H 0,Uno, a sum so insignificant to finance this vast creation of new stocks that the wonder should be not that Wall Street prices have declined but that they have not declined More violently. A few people know How serious have been the losses to individuals an i firms in and out of Wall Street by too extended underwriting of the issues of new Industrial combinations lately exploited. It is Well known that with the exception of tin fir tissues the Hulk of the flotations since have failures bringing with such failures widespread losses to underwriters and institution. A the Stock Quot of the new combinations or most of them Are absolutely unsaleable and of course valueless As collateral.

Conspicuous bravery was displayed Oil both sides Blit it soon became adv Parent that the Rifle of the burghers w Ere ineffective against an armoured train. The latter however was at on time forced to Retreat be fur a succession of Strong assaults but it soon returned accompanied by a British mounted contingent and Hie fighting was resumed fiercely. A fighting still continues the Boers holding their positions Well. A dozen Boer were killed or wounded but the British casualties cannot be ascertained. A heavy firing can in heard South of Mafeking where general i Jonjev it onion and is operating. A a corps of experienced Continental engineers former officers has left Pretoria for the southwestern Borders an a escorted by a commando of picked Boer shots.
