Ignoring and cold-shouldering of the
Republican by Connell's candidates,

campaign printing was given us by the

ticket without complaint."
The senior proprietor of the Republl
can, Dem., did complain. To a repre

visited him to ascertain If his paper

The Retirement of Senator Porter.
State Senator Charles A. Porter, of
Philadelphia, David Martin's ally in
the so-called Quuker City combine, has
announced hla unqualified retirement
from politics. Mr. Porter Is a rich
business man. Who got into politics
through loyalty to friends, and once in
found for many years no suitable op
portunity of getting out again, without
deserting those who had stood by him.
He has been abused, caricatured, ma
ligned and misrepresented with a per
sistency worthy of a better cause; but
those who know him have never had
their faith shaken for an Instant in his
Integrity or In his manliness.
In the celebrated Philadelphia may
oralty fight which divorced David Mar
tin from Senator Quay, Senator Port
er's opposition to the nomination of
Penrose was open and above board. He
never promised Penrose his support
and never agreed to acquiesce in his se
lection. Upon the contrary, Mr.Porter
emphatically proclaimed, weeks before
the mayoralty convention. Ills belief
that Penrose, if nominated, could not
be elected. Although the Penrose ieo
ple, in their bitterness ct the sudden
turning of the convention from Penrose
to Charles F. Warwick, trained their
batteries upon Porter quite as viciously
as they did upon 'Martin, who aione
acted In an appearance of bad faith,
it is an incontrovertible fact that Por
ter, In the whole episode, conducted
himself fairly and honorably, and was
abused with an entire absence of jus
tice or provocation.' "' v . ' r -
In the senate Mr. Porter was ait able
tad resourceful legislator, who added
weight to the upper branch of the state
congress. The hounding to which he
has been subjected Is as disgraceful as
It will, In time, prjive damaging to the
party which tolerates and encourages
such personal methods of warfare.
The real secret of the revolt of the
group of Republican silver senators
who defeated the Dlngley bill Is ex
plained by the statement that inasmuch
as the sllverites will control the senate
for four years to come, they propose to
stand as a barrier against any tariff
legislation whatever until they can
force the Republicans into accepting a
free coinage rider. If they can carry
out this programme they will be big
men. But can they?
Municipal Themes in the Schools.
Is It desirable that the public schools
and colleges should teach the princi
ples underlying wise municipal govern
ment, and also Inform their pupils how
the municipality Is conducted? This
proposition was recently mude by May
or Swift of Chicago, in a speech wherein
he unmercifully castigated the critical
stuy-at-homo element which Is never
satlsllcd with municipal government
yet does nothing to help improve it
and It occurred to one of the Chicago
papers the Times-Herald to follow
the suggestion out by soliciting opinions
f.'om the leading college and university
presidents concerning the advisability
of such a course of Instruction.
President Charles Kendall Adams of
the University of Wisconsin, heartily
approves the Idea, which hus already
been put into practice In the Institution
over which he presides. Says he:
This year, in the University of Wiseon

liKin who has devoted three years of sya.
tetnatic study of the subject, having pur
sued his work partly in this country, part
ly in KuMland, unl partly in continental

the I nlted Slates and Hie leading cities

pear In important modern municipal sys
tenia. The third course Is devoted to mu
nicipal administration, following the sem
inary method, with a study of statistical
ami administrative reports of the largest
cities of Kurope and America. The prob
lems discussed are municipal budgets, sys
tems of communication and lighting, the
problem of dwellings, distribution of pop.
illation, etc. These courses are given part
ly uy systematic Investigation, carried on
according to the seminary method, the
whole occupying two hours of lectures and
class work per week. Tills course fur
nishes a good opportunity for every stu
dent who desires systematic Instruction
in methods of municipal administration.
I regard the course as of the utmost value
The suggestion Is also approved by
Presidents Cut ter, of Williams, North
rop of the university of Minnesota, fill-
man of Johns Hopkins, Angell of the
university of Michigan, Uuckham of
the university of Vermont, Rogers, of
the Northwestern university, Andrews
of Rrown, Harper of the university of
Chicago, Schurman of Cornell, Smart
of Perdue and several others. Not all
of these educators believe that It would
be necessary to establish a separate
professorship of municipal government,
but all concur In the proposition that
the trend of Instruction In the higher
Institutions of learning should be such
as to qualify, rather than disqualify
the gWuluatte for the practicnl and
prosy duties of citizenship for the
party cuuetts, the city council chamber.

As usual. President Eliot of Har
vard strikes a discordant note. This
dyspeptic academician replies: "It
does not seem to me that municipal
government Is a proper subject for a
professorship. It Is a branch or de
partmi-nt of public administration In
which our free Institutions have failed
and on that account we take, for the
moment, a special interest in it. It is
to be hoped thut this great evil will
be corrected before long, und then,
think, the narrowness of the subject,
as only one topic In public administra
tion, will be more clearly seen than it
Is now." We hope that President
Eliot's prediction will speedily be real
ized, but we fear that Its realization
will come. If at all, In spite of rather
than because of the kind of teaching
wrought by the mugwump executive
In the Boer republic, 14,000 male Bo
ers, mainly a conservative, pastoral
people, have the exclusive suffrage,
while 120.000 Ultlnndcrs, modern in
every particular, have no voice what
ever In the government of affairs. But
the Boers were there first. It Is their
land and their government. If the Uit-
landors are not satisfied to "squat" In
peace, justice would seem to indicate
that they ought to get out, Probably
they would, were it not that the Trans
vaal happens to contain the richest gold

by fair means or foul.
Farming in Days to Come.
The Electrical Student prints a pic
ture showing a trolley car preceded by
half a dozen hay wagons, potato loads,
wood loads and miscellaneous vehicles
conveying farm produce, nil impelled
by electricity after the fashion In vogue
in our city streets. The picture is la
beled: "The Farmer of the Future Go
ing to Market at the Rate of Twenty
five Miles an Hour." The Student sup
plements its picture with some very in
teresting reading, in the form of an
interview with the late Colonel James
M. Clark, of Cincinnati, a most In
structive person. The colonel was com
plaining of the backwardness of the
farmer's lot as compared with the resi
dents of our cities when he said:
K very body else bus his dully moil, his
daily paper, his access to comforts, his
club and nil those things that go with the
easy assemblage of iieople at any one
point. But the furmer is practically where
he was 100 years- ugo. He has things a lit
tle more comfortable in some respects, but
he gets very few of the luxuries, be he
rich ur be he poor. Ho in too fur away
from other folks, and I say It Isn't fair.
Besides that, he won't stand it much lon
ger. He is bound to Insist upon having
his daily market report, so that he can
buy and sell his produce on the fluctua
tions, the same as other people. He Is
bound to have the means lo dump 2,000
bushels of wheat into the elevator In a
half day any time he tlnds the market
right. It's got to come to him, and elec
tricity will bring it.
"You say, why doesn't the farmer build
good roads and get near to nil market in
that way? Huh, a farmer never built
roads anywhere. Take France, road
very line, but built by Napoleon for mili
tary purposes. Take Knxlun 1. roads start
ed by the Ituir.an voldicrs ai:l completed
by the same interests that are bu!l llns
railroads In America today unj have bullc
all the good roads the commercial Inter
ests. It Isn't the farmer's turn to build
roads, und ho won't build uny until he can
hold the stork in them like other folks.
Another thing, whers would the farmers
of the great prairies get material to make
roads? hy, It would be about as cheap
as anything else they could get to pavo
them with gold. No sir, a few ties and a
puir of flat rails and there it the farmer's
road of the future. Put twenty or forty
loaded wagons behind each other, hit -h
a motor In front and uway you go, twenty
Hve miles an hour. If you've ever sen
a wagon running along on a street car
track you can imagine how smoothly n
train of loaded lumber wagons would i.klm
along a country road on street car rulls.
Your farmer muy live twenty miles from
town, but if the market suits him he can
get up at a decent man's hour, take In
his entire crop, sell It, bank his receipts
and be at home In time to kiss bis wife
over his fat certificate of deiKisit before
dinner Is ready. That would be living.
That would mak farm life attractive
enough 'to keep the tjoys at home."
The colonel ininuines that the resl
dents of the various county seats. In
agricultural districts would subscribe
for the stock to build radial trolley
lines reaching1 Into the country, since
It would centralize the trn:Hc of tl w hole
county In one town, enable the steam
roads to build large warehouses and
cause a general but a substantial
"boom." As to the question, will these
electric rouds pay? Colonel Clark says:
"It pays the steam roads to haul the
produce und people out of town, doesn't
it? Then why won t It pay the electric
roads to haul them in? Steam roads fur
nish their own. rolling stock, ut that, but
with the electric road the furmer would
of necessity desire to own ami furnish his
own wagon, for It would mean only one
handling of his load between his granary
and it lie elevator. If be lived oil' the ele
trie line he would build a short stretch of
road himself, hook a pair of hordes to bis
wagon, haul bis load ito the. main line
and zip, his grain would be In town.

ed as the mini who buys und sells on the
board of trade In Chicago, New York or
Liverpool. That Is. be will If lie has
the bruins, und I guess you can trust
our furmers for brains.
It cannot be denied that this Is an
Inviting prospect, for the farmer; but
It would go hard with wheelmen.

As yet life is strife, und every man who
succeeds, und who does good to his fel

good, by striving mightily nnd by holding

laws, well administered, to keep the
wicked in check, and to prevent the wreck
of decent men; as yet we neetl. as every

we do our work well In that grim und

alike, ure moving slowly forward toward

shrouds from the most far-sighted.
There Is great need for the exercise of
criticism, both by public men and by the
press; but there Is even greuler need that
this criticism should be honest and should
