New Orleans and San Francinco
are contesting fur the honor of hold-
ing thi* Kxpoaltion, and both cities
have guaranteed Immense minis of
money as an evidence of their ability
to finance go great an enterprise.
An Kxposition worthy of the terra
"World's Fair,” such as New Orleans
proiwiseg to build, will he a great ed-
ucational movement. Its success aa
such, however, will depend entirely
upon the percentage of our popula-
tion who can secure Its educational
advantages, this In turn, depends up-
on Its location, as the time in travel-
ing to and from the Kxitoaitlon, and
the coat In railroad and Pullman
fares, are the most Important factors.
Considering these matters. New
Orleans' rlaima to being the "Logi-
cal Point" for this Panama Exposi-
tion, seem to be fully substantiated
by the following farts: —
New Orleans Is BOO miles from the
center of population In the United
Rtates. San Francisco Is 2,500 miles
Within a radius of BOO miles from
-New Orleans there are 17,500,000
people Within the same radius from
Ran Francisco there are only 2,000,000.
Within a radius of 1.000 miles from
New Orleans, there are 65,000,000.
Within the same radius from San
Francisco there are only 6,000,000.
At an average of 900 miles from
New Orleans, there are 70 of our
principal cities with a combined
population of 20,000,000. Averaging
900 miles from San Francisco there
are only 8 large cities, with a com-
bined population of Just 1,000.000.
The average distance of all these
cities to New Orleans Is 792 miles,—
to San Francisco 2,407 miles.
Over 75 per cent, of the people of
the United States could go to an
Exposition there at au average ex-
pense for railroad fare of 112.50, as
ngainst an average of $37.50 to the
Pacific Coast; and for several mil-
lions of our people, the Pullman
fare and Dining Car expenses alone,
for a trip to San Francisco, would
amount to more than all their trans-
portation expenses for a trip to New
This Is an Important public ques-
tion to be settled by Congress at the
session which convenes In December.
Many of our readers will wish to
visit this World’s Panama Exposi-
tion, and if held In New Orleans a
groat many more could spare the
time and money for the trip than
could go to San Francisco. There-
fore, we urge our readers to write to
the two senators from this State and
the congressman from this district,
requesting them to support New Or-

GOV. HUGHES HAS RESIGNED
Queer questions come over the tele-
phone to the newspaper offices. Here
was one that the man who chanced
to answer the phone had put up to
him the other day:
'Say," began the unknown seeker
after the truth, "do you—do you re-
member who it was that killed Abel?"
"Why, Cain, of course,” replied the
newspaper man, who put In several
years at Sunday school. "Who'd Ju

other end In an annoyed tone, "doggon

Whoro Ho Assumes Duties of
Albany, N. Y. — Charles E.
Hughes retired from the governorship
of New York state, submitting to the

To The legislature:
I hereby resign the office of gover-
"Charles E. Hughes."
Mr. Hughes Immediately left for
Washington where on Monday he ts to
assume the duties of a justice of the
United States supreme court and per-

reached Knoxville after a stop at
Bristol, Va., whera he launched Into
a defense of his new nationalism and
told the crowd that he waa fighting

the crowds that turned out for him
all the way through Virginia and
Tennessee to be equally demonstra-
tive as those on the western trip. The
former president made brief speeches
from the back platform of his private

SAM) BY THE YOUNGSTERS’A LITTLE TOO PRIMITIVE
Bright Remarks Worth Fra-
serving. That Have Fallen From
A little girL after listening to the
Mb heaven there stands an

must be two heavens, "'cause grand
ma d sever had any open door where

laddie, visiting a city Sunday school
and hearing about the "many man-
sions” of the better land, later ex-
plained that they had been “studying
all about ‘Paradise Flats.’ ”

frequently are puzzling to the little
ones. A small Chicago cl tires waa ta-

the aun and silvers the start and

long and effective periods. Finally
came the Interrogatory climax: "Who

Managing a Husband.
Men are like children; they want
managing, although you must never
let them dream that you think so. No
child likes to be ordered about, no
man will endure coercion. But man-
aging! It la an art so subtle, so elu-
sive, that few women understand even
the rudiments of It. Slaters mine, let
us reason together, says Woman’s
Life. In every human being there la
a spark of the divine; It la youra to
fan that spark Into a flame—that la
managing a man—It la to get the very
beat out of him there la to have, and
not two women In ten can do It,
Do not think that there la anything
unworthy In managing a man—to
bring out the best la a high vocation.
Only let us aee to It that we are
worthy of It. There are women who
have made angele of men, but at the
coat of their own divinity. There la
room for more than one unselfish per-
son In a family.
A Kansas woman wants a dlvoroe
