AN AMERICAN "OO.H PAUL "
It appoirs from a study of the early
history of New York City that a name
eake of President Kruger played an
important part in our national history
about two nunarea years ago. xne
American Kruger spelled ma name
with a C bub the two patronymics are
a contraction of the Latin ''Cruoiger
a cross-bearer and it is possible that
the same blood moved the heart of the
American Cruger that now moves the
heart of the South African Kruger.
The name first appears in the records
of New York City in 169S. John Cru
ger was then a prosperous-mercbant of
theolty and subsequently became mayor
. and died in 1741 after paving the way
for the more conspicuous political career
of his son John Cruger Jr.
The latter was a member of the gen
eral assembly in 1759 and of the long
assembly from 1761 to 1768 the first
member of the New York chamber of
commerce and one of the first mer
chants who signed the non-importailon
agreement: but more than this he was
mayor of N&w York oity on that event
ful 1st of November when the Stamp
Act was dated to be enforced and the
people burnt Lieutenant Governor
Colden's effigy under the very muzzles
of his guns; and when (in the words o!
Bancroft) "the head of the province
and the military head of all America
confessing their inability to stop the
anarchy capitulated to the municipal
body which represented the people."
Mayor Cruger it was who at the
head of that "municipal body which
represented the people" called in per
son at the government headquarters
and it was under the pressure of 'his
urgent request and his solemn waraing
of imminent danger that Colden in the
presence of General Gage gave his
promise that the stamps should be de
livered into the custody of the city au
And "they accordingly soon after
accompanied by a Prodigious Con
course of People of all Ranks attend-
ed at the Gate of the Fort when the
Governor ordered the Paper to be
given to them and upon the Reception
of it gave three cheers carried it to
City Hall and dispersed. After which
Tranquility was restored to the city."

before she conquers the "Oom Paul"
of today and restores tranquillity to
A DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE.
Those who favor the creation of a
new government department to be
known as the department of commerce j
are finding powerful supporters in
both houses of congress. In the senate
Mr. Nelson addressing' the senate
committee on comroerce.made a strong
and convincing argument in favor of
the proposition. He traced the steady
expansion of the cabinet machinery
from five to eight distinct divisions
and proceeded to show how the duties
of the treasury department which now
has charge of all matters of commerce
had multiplied beyond the powers of
the secretary to look after them.
Senator Neloon dwelt upon the ne
ceesity for special recognition of th
manufacturing' interest with a view to
the extension of our foreign trade and
declared that the country's industrial
and business development imperatively
demanded representation in the cabi
net. Perhaps the most convincing
reaion which Senator Nelson oould
have 61ted In advocacy of the new de
nartment. Doints out the Baltimore
Herald is to be found in the fact that
the trreat trading nations of
Europe years ago recognized the im
nortanoa of Diviner close at
tent ion to commercial mat
ters and of making the -acquisition of
new markets as well as the retention
of old ones together with such other
measures as are calculated to foster
business activity the special care of
a minister chosen for his knowledge
and wide irr&sD of the subject. The
wisdom of this etsp ia manifestly ap
parect in the gains made by Germany
Russia and other nations.
Our commerce is too valuable to suf
fer contraction and impairment
through iocomDetence or neglect. It
has outgrown the scope of asub-divl

Mrs. JuiiiA Ward Howe has been
interviewed on the subject of the Phil
ippine problem and she has deolared
herself on the expansionist side. A
good many of her wonted associates
have taken a different view but she is
not in agreement with them. "I find
myself unable" she says "to indorse
the various utterances of those who
name themselves anti-imperialists.

of SD&in was in the first instance a
military necessity. Having success
fully dealt with this emergency we are
bouird to see that the last state of the
people thus freed should not be worse
than the first. Savage anarchy is
even more to be dreaded than civilized
oppression." Mrs. Howe is true to her
late husband's position; when a similar
subject was in earlier issue. At the
time President Grant proposed the an
nexation of San Domingo Dr. Howe
