HABVKYA. Fuller, the blind poet,
formerly of Milwaukee, who is now
living at Hillsdale, Mich., has in press i only twenty thousand
another edition of Ms book, "Dark

will come iuto competition with the
Democratic national administration,
which has been producing dark shad
ows ever since its inauguration last
Tut PACT that Repreamtalive Mo
Creary discredits the story that -Minister
Willis demanded the retirement
of the provisional government does not
disprove the allegation. On the con
trary, advices from Hawaii lend color
to the statements, because the official
instructions given to Minister Willis
were in conformity with that idea.
Too sympathies of the administration
were manifestly with ineen Li and
her late kingdom and our minister was
instructed to do what he could in re
storing the gueen to the throne.
The iNLiEi'KNDKNT Washington Post
hlstues a goodly share of those hard
times upon the interstate commerce
net, under the operation of which
twenty percent, of our Amtrican rail
ways have gono into bankruptcy. It
does not appear, though, that the
Post's diagnosis is well taken. The in
terstate commerce act is very far from
perfect; but it baa done good in many
directions ami hss proved agreeably
innocuous in tboss clauses which mani
festly violate common sense. The
railway business has suffered much
more badly from speculative owner
ship and management than from the
C'nllom law; and possibly more from
the tariff uncertainty, in its depression
of all business enterprise, than from
ART INFLUENCE OF THE FAIR
The prevalent universal demand for
pictures of the beautiful "White City"
is the earliest evidence of the quick
ening influence of the World's Colum
bian Exposition. Publishers without
number are issuing series of World's
Fair pictures, and there seems to be a
growing call for more. Before the
great fair was thrown opn so many
pictures of the bnilding were printed
by the newsoapers that the public was
wearied by the repetition, but after the
same people bad seen the classic build
ings and enjoyed the beauties of the
teen" as a whole they became heart -hungry
for something that would keep
the fair bright in memory.
Photo-engraving meats this want,
and the attractive pictures of the
"White City" now to be had renew the
delights of the scenes at Jackson park,
last summer, and awaken gratulation
that photography and photographic
engraving are so far advanced that
they can reproduce the beauties of the
Fair with marvelous accuracy as to
architectural detail, and light and
Hhade. The longing for a continuance
of the Impression the "White City"
produced is the first manifestation of
uew-bom aspiration for beauty in
irchitectural effects that will surely
reflect itself in the buildings of the
Even the architects snd builders of
the fair are amazed over the result of
their own work. Architect Van Brunt,
who designed one of the buildings, de
clares in the Engineering Magazine
that "the soul into which at least some
jpart of the architecture of the great
exposition did not enter as an illumina
tion never to be extinguished could
not be touched by any manifestation of
A SIGNIFICANT EXPERIMENT.
The fact that a foreign built locomo
tive is to be tested on the Chicago,
Milwaukee and St. Paul railway is
suggestive, if not significant, when
viewed in connection with the pend
ency of the Wilson bill.
English locomotive manufacturers
would uot go to the expense of makiug
trial ruus 04 American roads if they
did not believe that the Democratic
congress will open American markets
to thorn. The natural policy of &Uf
li-.li stockholders who can control
Amerlcau railways will be to buy
equipment for those railways in Eng
land, if it cau bo accomulisheil, and in
that case what will become of the
American mechanics now employed In
the manufacture of looomotirei and
rails and other railway supplies?
Amoricau locomotives have hereto
fore stood high in tho t'steem of
the world. In many respects thoy
have borne the palm. But if the
Democratic free trade folly is persisted
in, the competition between American
and foreign-built locomotives will not
be decided entirely on tho basil of me
chanical merits. Besides, what would
there be to prevent foreign manufact
urers from availing thomselves of
American-designs? English capitalists
controlling an American railroad miglit
also own stock in locomotive-building
works. What would bo more certain,
if the tariff were out of the way, than
that these men should make their
American railway interests contribute
to tho prosperity of their English man
.Nothing is clearer than that the car
rying out or Uemoeratic tree trauo
policies will tend to make the United
States a poor and dependent nation,
THE PROFOSED NEW STATES.
The senate committee on territories
has now under consideration bills that
have already passed the house provid
ing for the admission of I' tali and
Arizona to the I'uion. It is taken for
uranted that the house, at an early
day. will also send to the senate a bill
giving the right of statehood to Now
Mexico, as tho I'hicauo platform de
dared iu favor of the admission of all
three of these territories to the Union.
The impression prevails at Washington
that the senate Will ratify the action
of the house in short order. There are
nevertheless, strong reasons why tho
senate should take a broader and more
statesmanlike view of the subject,
and reject the bills iu their present
Utah, Arizona and New Mexico
should not bo admitted as states for
the sufficient reason that none of them
has a population that warrants admis
sion, under existiug circumstances.
I tah has a population of two hundred
thousand, Arizoun of only fifty nine
thousand six hundred and twenty, and
New Mexico of one hundred and fifty
three thousand five hundred and ninety
three. Air three territories have been
growing very slowly of late years, and
there is no reasonable certainty that
they will grow in population more rap
idly in the future. Arizona increased
iu the decade
from 1S!U to 1880, and New Mexico
only thirty-three thousand. Why
should the little groups of people who
live iu these territories, many thou
sands of them Indians and Mexicans,
unable to speak the English language,
ho granted a moasure of power in the
United States senate equal to ths in
fluence wielded by great common
wealths like New York, Pennsylvania
Senator Proctor has introduced a
bill providing for the annexation of
1 ' ill to Nevada, thus making one large
state of the two, and this idea is inset -ing
with much favor. Another equally
good plau would be the union of Ari
zona and New Mexico. 1'nitedly they
would have only a population of two
hundred and fifty thousand, and not a
very desirable population at that. If
these three territories should be ad
mitted, as the Democrats propose, ten
western states, having a total popula
tion not much in exesss of the city of
New York, will have twenty represen
tatives iu the senate a representtaion
not only wholly disproportionate to the
population and intorest involved, but

nothing gool or bad, but thinking
makes it so," would seem to apply to
kissiug. There were enlightened peo
ple in ancient times who thought it
shameful for women to hear the music
of the lute. Yet in Scrautou there are
thousands of members of the gentle sex
who listen delightedly to moilO by a
wholu orcht-atra of stri.iged instru
ments, and who are very estimable per
sons. A society or tim vicinage wnicn
devotes itself to tho culture of music
and which entertains no distrust of tn.t
once suspected lute, Is, singularly
enough, divided by a controversy over
the permissibility of kissing. The
leader of tho organiz itiou has been
called to account to answer to the
charge that he openly kissed a member
of the ladies' choir, He admits the soft
impeachment. lie explains, however,
that the manner of tho occurrence was
this: There had been a dancing pro
gramme, which was concluded, and
one of tho young Indies begged tho
director to play one more dance. He
jokingly replied that he would if the
young lady would give him a kiss. To
his surprise, she accepted the proposi
tion. What would any man have done
under circumstiiuces like this'.'
Kisses of the kind that Kiln Wheeler
celebrates and even kisses such 11s the
lato Kiimin Abbott introduced upon
the stage are no doubt too warm and
Intimate for public perusal; but u
light and laughable salutation such as
that with which the director of a
Kinging society under highly ameliora

barnusment of a playful and pretty
young girl, may perhaps be safely
overlooked without danger to the

likely to shoot up very high in all am bitious

The opinion of in- Philadelphia l'res
and some other Kepubllcau journals
nearer home that the honorable William
Mines will be easily walloped next fall, by
reason of his falling out with the adminis
tration, Is more plea-iant than accurate.
Hiues is now situated just where he
wants to be. As a "cuckoo,1' ho would
have been merely one among a hundred
or two. Asa "kicker," though he looms
up iuto conspicuous publicity, guts a
cbauce to practice his cunning arts, at
tracts tbe eyes of tho gossips and can
blame auy patronage disappointments Iu
his district upon the administration's owu
bull-headeduoss rather than get them
chalked up against his own f uturo. Wbon
it is recalled, how every appointment iu
Luzerne county means a dozen malcon
tents, each thereafter living solely for re
venge, aud utilizing all their friends and
relatives against the congressman who
has "thrown them dowu,'' Mr. Uiues' es
cape from such a perplexity means liter
ally a new grip on the situation.
ABOLISH THE PARDONING POWER.
The one fear of law-abiding people,
when the conviction of Prendergast by
the Chicago jury was announced was
that Governor Altgsld might pardon
bim. The prerogative of executive
clemency introduces an element of un
certainty into the operation of the
criminal law which is highly de
moralizing, and which robs punish
ments, when they are administered, of
a large share of their exemplary effect.
When a criminally disposed person
argues with himself on the chances of
being made to suffer for a contem
plated misdeed, he says: "I may be
ablo to conceal my crime. If J fail in
this, I may bo able to get away. If 1
am caught, and (lied, a good lawyer
may manage to secure my acquittal.
Hut even if I am found guilty, and
sentenced, I shall still havo the chance
of obtaining n pardon from the gov
ernor." With the expectation of punishment
so shadowy and uncertain, what won
der that fear of the law cuts a small
figure in deterring people who hare
munlor in their hearts? One of the most
serious arguments against sentences of
life imprisonment instead of the death
sentence for mnrdsr in the first degree
is the opportunity which life prisoners
have for renewing appeals for pardon
time and again, before different Gov
ernors, with the probability that sooner
or later a governor with an impression
able nature may surrender to the ap
plication. It would be hotter for tho
cause of justiee if the prerogative of
executive clemency were abolished, and
if sentences imposed by the courts
could bo commuted only by a board of
jndgee, 011 the basis of evidence which
had not boen produced at the original

THE MORALITY OF KI8PIN0.
There are people who consider danc
ing and going to the theater improper,
and who are, nevertheless, of opinion
that kissing Is a form of salutation
which may be indulged in by persons
of opposite sexes without impropriety.
They even sanction it as nn exercise to
give zest to social games, such as
"Copenhagen," "forfeits" and other
recreations familiar to patrons of the
church sociable and the Sunday school
picnic On the other hand, there are
people who place theater-going and
dancing among the most innocent of
amusements, but who object to kissing
in public as an act of indecorum.
