Great criticism is made of the steel manufacturers, who make little effort to fulfill contracts that are awarded to them in good faith. If we were in the business of war as rigidly as such a country as Germany our government would not stand being the sport of contractors as it is. And not only this, but in every exceptional boom in shipbuilding, or in great strikes, the government is supposed to wait patiently till the labor war is over.

G000 STORIES, Pilgrims on Penitential Road Around Lhassa. JwRWOOD. Jan The celebration of Its 10th anniversary and ladies' night by the Norwood business association and board of trade last evening was notable in the history of Norwood. It was an event that had long been looked forward to, and for which ample preparation had been made. The affair took place in Village hall, and the place was handsomely decorated for the occasion. The program as arranged was a most attractive one, and opened with the reception in Masonio hall, which lasted from 6:30 until 7 o'clock. James A. Hartshorn, H. Allen Halstead. Hon F. A. Fales, J. F. Plimpton, George F. Willett, Charles T. Wheelock, Hon Warren E. Locke, Francis O. Winslow, George H. Morrill Jr, Thomas A. Houl-lahan, Walter F. Tilton, Fred L. Fisher and Dr L. F. Bigelow acted as ushers. The banquet took place in Village hall, a Boston firm catering. Prayer was offered by Rev James B. Troy of St Catherine's church. RAPID TELEGRAPHY. The telegraphic system is wonderful enough in itself, but the improvements In the code and in rapid transmission Experiment of Raising Seals in Great Lakes May be Triad. The success which has attended tha cause of organized labor is a sufficient excuse for its existence. With labor and capital firmly entrenched, ready to enforce their demands by strike or lockout, the community at large Is likely to suffer, and It is the present opoortunitv of boards of trade to furnish a meeting ground between the two forces, where thev may confer and adjust their differences. All organizations partake largelv of the spirit of the community in which they exist, and it rests with your board of trade to determine whether organized labor in Norwood shall be a menace or a blessing. Admit to your banquets, your meetings and your membership the worthy representatives of organized labor, realize that the welfare of the community rests upon the welfare of the warge-earner, win the confidence of -the employe, retain the confidence of the capitalist, mouid public opinion when, conflict is impending, and you will have taken a long step toward the solution of the greatest industrial problem of this or any time. Capt J. Stearns CushJng, the first active president of the association, was the last speaker, and devoted a few minutes to a-resume of the work accomplished by the Norwood business association. He closed his remarks by offering to Pres Halloran a toast: "The town of Norwood Is to be congrxtulated for its board of trade; long may It continue in its good work and prosper under your management."

Mr P. H. Delany lias been working on a device for the last 10 years by which it is now possible to send and receive from 1000 to 3000 words a minute. The most serious obstacle that has confronted Mr Delany has been the interruption of the static current, as the accumulation which gathers while the message is being sent is called. This difficulty has now been overcome by a very direct method, and at last "press" wires can by the use of the shortest code and the best operators carry an average rate of -500 words a minute, the actual record being 3000. Whether this invention will finally be made practicable in this country remains to be seen. The contrivance is very complicated and technical, but to have messages running at a continuous rate of even 1000 words a minute means much. If telegraphy can be thus accomplished with so much labor-saving it ought to be accomplished with a proportionate money saving.

"I may be pardoned, however, for my seeming trespass on the time which is allotted to our guests if I call attention in a brief way to a few matters which this occasion suggests to me, to say to those who are strangers to our association and its work. "In the decade of our existence many things have been done In a public way for the town which have had their inception in this body and were carried out through the activity of the men who are its members.

"The fur seal is naturally a salt water amphibian." said he, "but it has been known to live and breed in captivity 1000 miles from salt water. However, the captive seals were always well cared for and well fed. Fish is their chief food, and if fish are found in sufficient quantity in lake Superior that objection to the success of the plan would be removed. "Climatic conditions are another matter to be considered. It Is somewhat questionable if the Intense cold of the lake Superior region would not prove detrimental to tho health of the seals. The fur seals of Alaska remain at their rookeries In the Pribylov islands only during the heated season of the summer. The rest of the year they are somewhere in the southern Pacific, at their feeding grounds.

H. recent candidate for governor, was introdued and followed the reading of the letter from Hon Herbert Parker. Hf.n Sir Hollis was accompanied by his wife, a Norwood girl. Mr Hollis was a very entertaining speaker and in opening his remarks said: If I have a proper understanding of the aims and purposes of a board of trade in its best and truest sense, its activities are not confined to the advancement of business alone, but extend to all that makes for the happiness, contentment and well being of the community. New industries are of prime importance, electric railroads and telephone systems must be supplied, but no well regulated board of trade will fall to keep a watchful eye on the public schools, public libraries, parks and streets, the public health and even the public morals. Anything that will make our town more wholesome, more respectable or more attractive, is a fit subject for discussion by our board of trade. As tho house of the individual Is his home in a personal sense, so the town Is the home of the community at large and of each individual in his public re-lntion. It should be the constant study of an association like this to make the collective home so pleasant and charming that our own young people will be induced to stay among us. and the best class of citizens will be attracted to us from abroad. Let us remember that while one dollar is very much like another, and all peoplo are eriual before the law In the sense that they have ft legal riht to equal opportunities there Is a tremendous difference in peopl? as citizsns and neighbors. The very best citizens and neighbors are none too good for our home own. This personal element is freauentlv overlooked when a new industrv is un- Mr Mrs Rice I Miss Susie Wbeelofk DEMOCRACY'S OPPOBTTJNITY. THAT imperialism and turbulence must be superseded by conservatism in the conduct of national affairs Is the sensible argument leading democratic statesmen are advancing in these early stages of the presidential campaign. The conventions will be held in a few months, hence the advocacy by the democratic party of a return to a calm, judicious and business-like administration of governmental affairs, favorably impresses all citizens. Many people view with disapproval the Jingoism, of bragging spirit of war, which has prevailed to an alarming extent in Washington for some time, and they welcome such high-minded and conservative declarations as fell from the lips of the distinguished speakers at the banquet to Mayor McClellan in New York. The democratic contention that the constitution of the United States still means something meets with popular favor. The time has not arrived when a President can afford to ignore the provisions of the constitution, which say3 that congress and not the chief magistrate must inaugurate war measures. There is always a reaction after a period of excessive or false prosperity, and the democrats are wisely endeavoring to adapt themselves to new conditions which have arisen, while their opponents seem to think that a do-nothing policy is best. Mr Richard Olney states the. case concisely when he says that: In matters domestic the democratic party will repudiate the "stand pat" policy, and will advocate both economy in expenditures and such tariff reform and revision as industrial conditions and the interests of tho country at large demand. The public is looking to the democratic party for reforms such as Mr Olney suggests. The republican policy is fixed to ignore them. Discerning financiers, manufacturers and merchants believe in proper tariff adjustments and reciprocity treaties, and they know that unless such matters are regulated rightly the trusts will continue to retain their tenacious hold on the leading industries and make the prices for all important commodities. These things have been practically ignored for eight years, and the democrats will quickly receive the public confidence and support when it is seen that they intend to conduct a presidential campaign on these most vital issues of the day. In the language of Col Gaston, "The democratic party has been successful only when it has been a conservative party, and it has its best opportunity this year." New York will still be the pivotal state in the coming campaign, and the outlook there is very encouraging for democrats. Mayor McClellan is popular, energetic and conservative. Does he duly appreciate the arduous task before him? His intimate friends think he can be relied upon to heed the following suggestion of Mr Cleveland: The manner in which the democracy ef the city shall meet its municipal responsibilities will, in a large degrees determine the extent to which our few low countrymen in every part of the land will be willing to trust the democracy of the nation in broader fields of governmental rule. Apropos of this suggestion, it may be supposed that the present scandals in the departments at Washington have already created an impression very unfavorable to republican rule. The contrast with the honesty of the last democratic administration is very striking. Hon David B. Hill pertinently observes that: The Cleveland administrations of JSS5 and 1893 may have made mistakes, but to their credit be It said that there was never any charge of corruption seriously made against them, and none at all was ever established. All things considered, the national outlook for the democracy could not be better. The question of a standard bearer should not give any trouble. Any one of several prominent democrats who are already favorably mentioned could carry New York and several other doubtful states. From the NJew England standpoint, no fitter candidate could be named than Hon Richard Olney. It has never been suggested that he lacked any of the qualifications for the office. His career in the state department proves that he is of presidential size. Does he not, in fact, meet all the requirements which in his speech at the New York banquet he assigned to Mr Cleveland? Has he not "the proven courage of his convictions," and is not his "record in the past an all-sufficient guarantee of his action in the Your letter containing check for $5 received, for which I you.
