Hallway Development in Africa. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
Hallway Development in Africa. In twenty years' time, it . is safe to prophesy, railroad development in Africa will have made enormous strides — and the many important branch lines to connect with, the Cape-Cairo trunk will have been constructed or be near completion. In the south the line from Johannesburg will have joined that at Bulawayo; Bulawayo, again, will be connected with a line running right across the country " to Walfisch Bay In German West Africa. In Central Africa, the trunk line will connect with German and British lines running to the east coast; and it is only reasonable to suppose that by that time a line or lines through Belgian territory will connect or be in close touch with the Cape-to-Cairo route.' And that the trunk will be a paying concern there is no reason to doubt. In the Ehodesian section already built the returns have advanced by leaps and bounds. The engineering difficulties of the Cape-to-Cairo line are considerable, but not insuperable; so that, with...

FUTURE OF OLD IRONSIDES Recollections of the Frigate, Constitution. HER ill AND RIGGING LIKELY TO BE REPAIRED It May Be Yean Before This Historical TuVWill Be Ready For , Active Service Again. The President's approval on February 14th of the act "authorizing the Secretary of the Navy to place the frigate Constitution' in the same condition as regards 'her bull and rigging as she waa when in ' active' service,'" recalls among naval officers many interesting reminiscences of the more recent career of the famous Old Ironbides, which had been almost forgotten in the rapid development of the new steel navy. It is not generally known, for example, that scarcely a ' stick of timber from the original conqueror of the Gue.riere now exists, save a few decayed ribs and frames, so often has the old hull been restored and extensively repaired, and, in fact, when the provisions of the new law are carried out the Constitution will be practically a new ship. The Navy Department has been anticipatin...

OF THEORY AND PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
OF THEORY AND PRACTICE Their Relation as Generally Understood. !. L. KIP PREStfITS AN IMPRESSIVE ARGUMENT He Says the Practical Theorist Makes the Feat Time and Is the Sureest of His Kesults. Theory and •practice 'are quite commonly set at opposite poles. ' They seem to be regarded as occupying a sort of an east and west; relation to each other, and not being on speaking terms, and that whatever one rhay.be the other is not. :' Now,' this is a very erroneous j idea.' - In all wise, safe conduct theory underlies practice. A railroad time table, a physician's prescription, an architect's plan, are all theories. All action that implies a voluntary and conscious agent is the expression of plan. It is the practical theorist who makes the best time and the surest getting there. : There is truth in the old couplet, .'.'A good rule is a .'good tool." And the emphasis rests. on the adjective. In rules or tools we want those that will work! - It just aoout makes all the difference we observe ...

CHINESE IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
CHINESE IRRIGATION. Although Their Methods Are- Crude, the Chinese Are Expert Gardners. The vast Chinese population knows nothing about irrigation systems in the modern sense: the Chinese are ignorant as to centrifugal pumps and yet with their crude methods they are expert ivrigatore and get all there is out of lands kept fertile by the constant use of water. The Grand canal between the Yang-tsze-Kiang and the old bed of the Yellow river in China carries a vast volume of water which is used largely for irrigation, the Chinamen laying off their little farms in plats and terraces, raising long-grained rice and curious Chinese vegetables, and utilizing every inch of space. In some of the provinces of the great Celestial Empire where the rivers are subject to spring floods, to protect themselves from inundation, the natives have thrown up embankments or levees on both sides of the rivers, but at distances of 100 or 150 feet from the natural banks. . This intervening space is, of course,...

PUBLIC APPEAL 7 [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
PUBLIC APPEAL 7 Aid From the Whole State Bought In the Palo Alto Chinese Case. . It is a mutter of. common -knowledge that the Statn;«tf has long been disgraced by the slavery of Chinese girls. The fact that this tratlio is confined to Chiuese hubjects does not mitigate the [ offense against- law and decency or loss-on tho moral responsibility of the citizens of the State. It is also a matter of common knowledge that this traffic could not continue were it not for the connivance or assistance of unscrupulous attorneys and officers of the law. That the people of the State have not ' hitherto crushed out this traffic is a disgrace. The recent case of Kirn Quey is an aggravated one. Rescued from a Chinese den in San Francisco by the Presbyterian Chinese Home, the girl was arrested last Thursday evening on a warrant issued by Justice Dyer of Palo Alto on a charge of petit larceny. Miss Cameron, superintendent of the bom*?, accompanied the prisoner •to Palo Alto. She dwlined to leave the...
