M. S. Quay,
J ere H. Hex,
W. H. Andrews,
For the seven months beginning July
1, 1S9C, our foreign trade ninilit a gain
of $90,370,671 as compared with the same
period the year previous, but Inasmuch
as J70,S07,tH I of this gain was in Imports,
It Is nothing much to crow over. We
are doing too much buying abroad.
Better do Home.
That congress made a muss of the
Cuban question will not be denied.
Klther lis first course In rallying for
belligerency rights was wrong, false
In foundation and dangerous in trend,
or else its later somersault was a cow
ardly bit of backing down before the
clamor of ' mugwumps, Uly-llvered
peace enthusiasts and downright, sym
pathizers with tyranny. We do not be
lieve in the flrst horn of the dilemma,
and the alternative Is by no means
The best thing that congress can do,
In reparation for its blunder, Is to pass
the senate resolutions anil adjourn. It
has shown Itself incompetent to handle
subjects requiring tact, patience and
discretion, anil while It may at heart
mean well, It Is evidently more likely
to create mischief thun to allay it.
These remarks do not apply to the
house of representatives, a body which
under trying circumstances has ac
quitted Itself nobly. They are direct
ed at the upper chamber, the place that
mteds a cleaning out.
The business Interests of the United
States do not want any new tearlng-up
of. the tariff, question. They, want a
few glaring defects remedied; they
want reciprocity restored, and that Is
all. , . , ..
' For Social Purity.'
"A number of young women of Wash
ington, we are told, have organized the
Kqual Standard Purity club. Their
Object la to establish a single code of
morals, equally binding upon men and
women, and to protect their members
from the society of men of impure lives.
Every member is required to sign the
I solemnly promise, by the help of flod,
to hold the law of purity us equally bind
ing upon men and women and to use my
utmost efforts to obey the command,
"Keep thyself pure"; to discountenance
all coarse language and Impurity In dress.
In language and art, and to lend a help
ing hand alike to men. .and women, giving
the penitent of both sexes an equul cliunce
of reform, so fur as my nssistuiice and
influence can do this.
It is further stated that a method of
ascertaining the private lives of young
men has been devised. Every young
man whose private life Is found to be
Impure will be blacklisted. This black
list will be In the hands of the executive
committee, the members will be In
formed, and they are pledged never to
receive the Attention of persons on the
It Is to be hoped that this courageous
experiment will succeed. The single
standard in morals can prevail when
ever women want It to. It Is not mas
culine depravity which Is discriminat
ing between the man and the woman
Inner; which exonerates the one and
mercilessly condemns the other. No
male voice ileads for special exemp
tions and special privileges. The double
standard in morals Is wholly the estab
lishment of those women who excuse
In the sterner sex misdeeds which. In
their own sex, they make the provoca
tion of systematic and exquisite tor
ture. We are not, however, sure about the
wisdom of the last clause In the pro
gramme of the Kqual Standard Purity
club. The chances are that If It Is
carried out, the results will be far from
satisfactory. Reformation is not usu
ally permanent along spy lines. The
man who Is moral only so long as he is
watched will manage somehow to evade
scrutiny and sin in secret. The black
list is one way of doing things, but
the white list rescued from blackness
would be preferable. For all that, the
Washington experiment Is novel and
will bear watching. J
taceo, the Cuban general, may lie
sick, but his condition probably Isn't a
circumstance to the condition of Spain.
There is one consolation in the failure
of this government to recognise ' the,
Cubans as belligerents, j Americans
whose property" Interests In .Ctiha are
damaged by the revolution con hold
Spain responsible. Claims, amounting
to upward of 130,000,000 have 'already
been tiled against the government at
Madrid, thus materially adding to
Spuing embarrassment In Jbe prem
ises. . i

A bill Is being formulated at Wash
ington to assess every civil service of
ficeholder 3 per cent, of his salary to
form a fund for the pensioning of su
perannuated employes. .The idea, so
long as left optional, would be excellent.
Once More th) flay brick Case.
- r .
One cannot help admiring the persist
ence "of the generous-minded women In
this country and in England who be
lieve in the Innocence of Mrs. Florence
Maybrlck and who, undaunted by two
refusals by the British government to
re-open that celebrated case, propose to
carry on the war for what they believe
to bo Justice. Such loyalty, fidelity and
courage appeal at once to our warmest
appreciation, even though as an ab
stract Intellectual proposition their case
presents hardly the shred of evidence
and less than a ray of hope.
The facts, so far as the public pos
sesses them, leave in the impartial mind
scarcely any 'doubt of Mrs. Maybrlck's
guilt. Her conviction after a careful
trial hedged round with all the safe
guards' of Rrltish Jurisprudence, left
the English government smull option In
the matter of ordering a re-opening
of the case. At the same time. Dr.
Helen Densmore, president of the Wo
men's International Maybrlck associa
tion, presents good reasons why tlreat
Britain, us an act of International
courtesy, might extend to this Ameri
can culprit a pardon. According to lr.
Densmore, one of the lust acts of Sec
retary Bluiue was to send a petition to
the' English government signed by all
th members of President Harrison's
cabinet and praying for Mrs. May
brick's release; while the president
himself addressed a personal letter of
the same tenor to the queen. Surely
these solicitations might well hove
been acceded to as a mutter of Interna
tional comity, regardless of the earlier
question of the prisoner's Innocence or
Such an action on the part of the
Rrltish government would be no more
than reciprocal when remember that
during our civil war an English captain
who was' charged with conspiracy
against our government, was arrested,
tried, convlcted'and sentenced to a term
In the penitentiary. After peace was. es
tablished John Bright asked our gov
ernment that the man be pardoned.
There was no claim that the man was
innocent or that he was suffering an
unjust punishment. As a matter en
tirely of International courtesy he was
at once liberated. In the present In
stance, the prisoner is a woman who,
If Innocent, Is being tortured and who,
If guilty, has probably already suf
fered enough to make a tolerably fair
expiation. I'nlucklly for this line of
argument, the British mind apparently
does not run In the direction of reci
procity. The failure of Senator Chandler to
bring forward proof of his fat-frying
stories would prompt an honest man
to make public apology.
The Cigarette Nuisance.
It has been the fashion to regard
anti-cigarette legislation in general as
something of a Joke, but in the state
of Ohio, at least, it has become no
laughing matter. A dispatch from
Cleveland explains what led to the en
actment at Columbus recently, by a
unanimous vote, of a bill providing
that "whoever sells, gives or furnishes
to any minor under 14 years of age
any cigarette, cigarette wrapper or any
substitute or. either, oi any cigar or
tobacco shall be fined not less than $-
nor more than, .$100, or .Imprisoned
not less than two nor more than thirty
days, or both, for the first offense
and lined not less than $r0 nor more
than $300 and Imprisoned not less
than five nor more thun sixty days for
the second or any subsequent offense."
The dispatch says that lit the neigh
borhood of nearly every school building
in the city are small stores where cigar
ettes and tobacco are sold to children,
and so general has its use become thut
the evil effects have assumed alarming
proportions. One teacher, after detect
ing the odor of tobacco In the school
room, Instituted a search and found in
the pockets of the scholars 142 cigarettes
or stumps thereof and six portions of
plugs of tobacco. This was in a pri
mary grade, where the oldest scholars
were not over 10 years of age. Other
teachers noticed that scholars were us
ing chewing tobacco even during school
hours, although they were obliged to
use Ink wells, desks and sponges for
cuspidors. The Injurious effects of
cigarettes upon growing boj-s was pain
fully shown by the fact that here were
victims In the lowest high School classes
whose hands hud the painful unsteadi
ness generally characteristic of extreme
old age, and thut more than a few were
wholly incapable of any continued or
concentrated mental effort. The rapid
growth of the habit wus Impressively
shown by the fact thut the percentage
of regular smokers In the lowest class
of the high school was greater than In
the highest class, although the mem
bers of the latter had three ndtlltlomil
years In which to acquire the habit.
It is probable thut u similar condition
prevails In many other large titles.
Thut It prevails, to a less degree. In
Scranton cannot be doubted. The Ohio
law is stringent enough In its penal
ties to break it up, but if It should prove
insufficient, other means will have to be
employed. The stunting of the child
mind and the child body by the deadly
clgarette habit must somehow be stop
ped. An amusing feature of Senator Will
iam Fllnn's oratorical arguments in
Pittsburg In favor of McKinley Is the
fact that had Senator Quay accepted
his terms of capitulation the same gen
tleman would now be making the wel
kin ring with appeals for votes for
Governor Morton's "memorandum"
accompanying his signature of the
Raines bill presents strong arguments
In Justification. The weak point In the
bill Is Its making the excise commis
sion a political department. To be
sure, the local excise boards under the
old order were political, and often of-
rtetislvely so.- But It would have been
better. Is Eee-nis to us, had the excise
commission beep made Judicial in or
Conization and In iiowers, after the
manner of the lluckenbeig preposition
In Pennsylvania. Even then, the fuc
tor of purtixan bius would In all prob
ability have- been none too obscure.
Events are moving; raoldly in Eu
ropean politics. The declaration of
Colonial Secretary JosephChatnberlaln
in England's parliament Friday that
the Salisbury government had deter
mined to al'l Egypt in reconquering the
Soudan, sustained as It was by a vote
of 2P8 to 143. brings into view a new
center of activity despito the fact that
within three months the attention oi'
the world has been successively f.i
cusscd on Venezuela, Torls, South Af
rica and Abypsinlu. The reconquer
ing of the Soudan, for Egypt means its
reconquering for England; it means,
furthermore, that Egypt Is to remain
a British dependency. And thus the
promise of Gladstone, made in lSSH,
that England would, within live years,
evacuate Egypt is carried forward a
second time, this time indefinitely.
If the senate wants by one final ef
fort to redeem Itself, let it pass the Mor
gan Joint resolution recognizing Cuba
and hHve done with all this shilly shal
lylng. ' '

not support for the presidency any man

with ull the force at Its command both
before and after the St. Louis conven

are many shrewd politicians in Wash

Chris Magee says that when the An

he told Senator Quay that the sentiment
of the senators was not in favor of such

was to be hurt, and that he only wanted
the commit tee to use It as a political club

From now on the presidential contest
promises to become lively. Only a little
more than one-third of the de'ecutes have
been chosen. There will be Mil delegutes
III the convention and 3'ia have been elect
ed. I Hiring the next htirty duys nearly uUO
more delegates will huve been selected.

will secure er.ou!i of these to tiomlnute
Ihcir man on the first ballot, ami that
there will be u scramble to get on the Mc
Kinley band w u non. This, however. Is
probnbly mi exaggerate.! cluim fur effect.
At present writing It does not seem pos
sible for McKinley to poll more than 20
votes on the II ret ballot, or within TU of
enough. It Is possible that the contested
seats may hold the balance of power
and that the committee on credentials will
really name the president. At the same
rule of progro s'S there will I).' over let)
contested seats In the convention. Thus,

'"Will.''. Is. the, cecret of MnKlnley's

cret about it. It isn't the man hlms
but the principle ho represents. It's I
protection Idea. Tho repeal of reciproc
and the passage of the VVilsoi-fJnrn
tariff bill are responsible. McKinley
not the personal popularity ! iilulnc-,
hus he the robust Individuality of Cli
land. He Is a man of very little magnetic
attractions. He is not 'brilliant, nor wit-
tf. nor wise.' He Isn't a great orator. He
never makes u speech without careful
prtparatton. and he has not the -gift of
eloquence. His social qualities have never
been developed, und us u conversationalist
4 well u m debater he Is slow and heavy.
McKinley is a student, u man of fuels
and itKucFH, who has never attempted to
muster but one utibject. but that happens
to be the subject -thai Is uppermost In the
minds of x he people today, and constant ly
'-minds them of their empty pocket. .In
!NS2 the citizens of the Culled States, who
number 7o.0cM0 and are mostly fool, as
Thomas Carlyle would have said, got a
notion thut tariff reform would make
ih.m all prosperous and happy. So they
blamed every misfortune they suffered
to the McKinley bill, and voted the Demo
cratic ticket. They have had nearly four
years to reflect upon their mistake, and
i ow they want a chance to correct it.
McKinley is associated with that mis
take more closely than any other man,
und they think they can atone for It by
making him president. That's the secret,
as you call' It, of his popularity."
CHICAGO NEWSPAPERS. .
From a "Syndicate Article.
In the matter of country circulation the
records of the postollice show the Times
Herald now has the lead. Mr. Kohlaaat,
who graduated from a bakery Into jour
ralism. has developed surprising capacity
a newspaper man. His chief editor.
Major M. P. Handy, tells me he never
knew a man more fertile In suggestion
than Mr. Kohlsuat. If he develops on the
lines of his recent progress In journalism,
he promises to give the newspaper world
ore of the most striking examples In his
tory of independence.
Mr. Kohlsaat can afford to be Independ
ent, l'stiully the journalist of high ideals
Is hampered by the restrictions of the
ctuntin; room. Mr. Kohlsaat s paper is
edited and Its policy controlled entirely
"up stairs." it hus left the held of ten
satlonulUin and is bulldlug up a family
circulation, it was probably the only pa
per in Chicago which published the story
of the recent prize tight in an Inconspicu
ous pluce on an Inside page. The Trib
une, which once represented dignity and
conservatism In Chicago Journalism, now
caters to the taste for sensation more than
any other Journal.
Mr. Kohlsaat of the Times-Herald prom
ises to become a factor In national poli
tic. He has been a warm admirer ef
Mujcr McKinley, and he Is pressing Mc
Kinley' claims to the Republican nomi
nation In the columns of his. paper, not,
he nays, for any Influence he may pos
sesa In ease Major McKinley is elected,
but beeuuse he believes Major McKinley
lo be the best man to be president and be
caus he thinks the people wnnt him nom
inated and elected, lie has told hi
friends thut he does not want anything
from the administration If McKinley I
elected, that he will not take anything
and that he will not sign a recommends,
lion for uny man who wunts an appoint
ment. it will be an object lesson to the newspa
per profession if Mr. Kohlsaat live up
to his ideals In Journalism and prospers.
