A Singular Delusion.
Senator Mitchell, of Oregon, has con
tributed to the June Forum a paper In
which he undertakes to prove that the
election of United Stutes senators by
direct popular vote will (1) afford an
efficient remedy for the many evils re
sulting from the present system of
senatorial elections such ns length of
time consumed and frequent failure to
choose, and the consequent distraction
of the legislative mind from Its proper
business; 2) discourage the use of im
proper means to Influence the control
of senatorial elections; CD greatly di
minish the temptation to gerrymander
(4) enlarge the political rights of the in
dividual voter relating to suffrage; (5)
eliminate from elections Involving tho
selection of members of the legislature
one great cuuse for Irritation and un
seemly contention wherein as a rule the
question upon which everything is
made to turn Is as to how this or that
inun will vote for senutor, rather than
upon the question as to his fitness for
the oflice of legislator; and (C) effec
tively tend to the destruction of "boss
With due respect to Senator Mitchell,
whose argument we have not yet
perused In full, but await with expect
ancy, we must say in advance that we
lack fuith In his platform. It seems to
us thut only two of his points are wor
thy of serious consideration, the first
and fifth; and In reply to both of them
we submit that If the people cannot bo
trusted to elect as their representatives
In the state legislatures men fit to do
the duty therein now delegated to them,
they could not with reason be .expected
to exhibit a greater measure of trust
worthiness if they should be permitted
to choose their United States senators
by direct vote. If they are hoodwinked
under the one arrangement, they would
be hoodwinked under the other; and no
improvement In the system of elections
would cause the political stream to rise
higher than Its fountain head. The ad
vocates of change confuse the effect
with the cause. The cause of bad sena
torial representation and indifferent
state legislatures Is not tbe fact that
senators are elected by legislatures; it
Is the fact that the mass of citizens who
elect the state legislatures do not take
pains to see that fit men are chosen to
represent them. So long as they are
thus lax In their electoral duty, It will
work no permanent good to tinker with
the machinery of elections. It will be
Imply labor wasted.
It seems very strange to us that so
many people should rest under delu
Blon on this point.

How Spain Fights.
Some interesting testimony was civ
last Wednesday before a sub-commltt
of the senate committee on foreign af
fairs by Rev. Alberto J. Diaz, a native
Cuban who had for many years been
Paptlst minister in this country, but
who had, more recently, been pastor
a church of 2,700 communicants in Hav
ana, from which city he was recently
expelled by Weyler. At the time of his
arrest and expulsion he was actinir
the president of a White Cross society
which aimed to relieve the sufferings
of those sick and injured In battle.
Rev. Mr. Diaz declared that the Cu
ban army numbered 50,000 men while
Spain s effective force was not greater
than 70.000. He thought Spain would
rive up the fight within six months, but
contended that though she were to
continue It for thirty years she could
not subdue Cuba. The insurgents, he
aid, are refraining from general en
gagements because they consider that
when the rainy season begins, yellow
fever and dysentery will play more
havoc among the Spanish troops than
oil their bullets could.
But the most interesting part of Rev.
Mr. Diaz's testimony related to the bru
tality of the Spanish. He gave several
Incidents which hud come under his per
sonal observation, and which ho said
he could substantiate. "In one case"
we quote from the Washington Post's
report of the committee hearing "a
woman who was assisting her husband
In the field wan shot, their only offense
being that they were Cubans. Another
east was at Cluatao, where the Spanish
soldiers killed six or seven men, non
combatants. Then the Spaniards went
Into different houses and gathi red sev
enteen rm-n. They tied these together
two by two, among them being Ladlslao
Quintero. an American, twenty-one
years old. of Key West, who was found
sick in bed. They were taken to the
street and commanded to kneel down.
The soldier tired at them, killing all ex
cept the American. This occurred on
February 22, In the Immediate presence
of the wives and children of the unfor
tunate men. Amadar. to whom tuln
tro was tied, was not killed by the
gunshot wound and one of the sjldiers
stepped forward and beat hint to death.
Dr. Vina saw the entire proceeding."
Hut this is not all. The report con
tinues: On the 13th of March, In Havana, lie
saw a crowd u round a pro-it rate man,
unci ns a menibor of the White OniM
society he went to rynili-r hfm uld. The
man was ileail. He hail srvemy-one bayon

xlves other Instances of iilloit.'d cruelties
hy the Spaniards. He asserts that the
approach of the Spaniards to t ho in
terior towns Urines k it'll t contusion an.i
fear, us they destroy everylhinii that
comes In their way. take complete pos.-es-slon
of the houses, and violate women
in many cases. . hen ihe invadliiK foive
nre Instirtrcnt there is great tranquility,
as thev do not destroy anything unless
Spanish forces are lo'-.iteil there. Aiieln
he tells of the assasiivition, on the Nth
of April, of a n umber of persons after Ir.'
inir forced bv the Spaniards to ill thci'-
own graves. The statement asserts that
over u hundred pers.ms w;-re shut wtttitn
n radius of ten mil's of Havana and with
in n period of llftven days, ull non-eomba:-uuts.
Rev. Mr. Diaz added that while Cam
pos had command, the rules of civilized
warfare were strictly enforced by his
orders, but as soon as Weyler assumed
command, he (Diaz) and others were
instructed not to treat or otherwise
enre for the sick una wounded soldiers
of the Insurgent cause. This and much
rlmilnr testimony was given In a man
ner which Is said to have carried con
viction. Anyway, it would seem ns if
the word of a clergyman In good stand
ing ought to go as far with our govern
ment as the special pleading of the
Spanish minister, who naturally tries
to earn his salary by making out the
strongest possible case for his employ
And still Cleveland hesitates.

The New Immigration Bill.
The bill to further restrict Immigra
tion, which passed the house on
Wednesday by a vote of 195 to 26, ex
cludes from admission to the United
States all male persons between 10 and
BO years of age who cannot both read
and write the Kngllsh language or some
other language. The parents of for
eigners now In this country are ex
empt; so that aliens now here who
wish to have their parents come to
America can do so by proving the fact
This measure, it will be seen, rejects
the Stone principle t of consular cer
tification abroad and embodies the sub
stance of the Lodge literacy test. It
Is assqmc-d by this bill that the steam
ship companies will not sell tickets of
passasge to illiterate immigrants when
they realize that all rejected passengers
will have to be returned at their ex
pense. The Immigration league esti
mates that if the foregoing principle
hnd been In force during the past ten
years, not less than a quarter of a mil
lion Immigrants who are now In this
country would have been kept out.
Another feature of the bill thut prom
ises to produce Interesting results If the
measure shall become a law Is the
fact that It prohibits the temporary
immigration of Canadians. It was
claimed by the sponsors of this
provision that at present thousands
of Canadians enter border Amer
ican towns, get work and high wages
without adopting American citizenship.
and go back with their earnings to
Canada. The section putting a stop to
this practice, and limiting admissions
to those who are willing to declare
their intention of becoming American
citizens was adopted by a vote of 121
to 45, and now Canada threatens to re
We are not sure that the evil suffered
from the temporary Canadian Influx
warrants the extreme remedy here con
templated. Theoretically, of courts,
those who earn their living In the Unit
ed States ought to be willing to settle
down In this country, declare allegl
ance to it and give to the community
whence they derive their livelihood the
benefits of their residence. But prac
tically the barring of Canadians would
be likelier to cause trouble than to do
good. The other features of the bill,
however, are excellent, and the senate-
Is recommended to concur In their en

Tom Reed goes to New York to practice

The New Flying Machine.
The recent test, at Oscoquan, Va., of
Professor Samuel P. Langley's Hying
machine an apparatus upon which Its
Inventor has been at work for nearly
six years, and In the development of
which he had expended $00,000 was
noted at the time, somewhat briefly, ill
The Tribune; but the subjwt Is of nut-
fleent Importance to warrant a more
extended reference. We have been try
ing for several days to find an account
of tho machine and of thd testing of It
which would be Intelligible to unscien
tific readers, but the search has not yet
been very successful. Protocol' Alex
ander Graham Bell, howaven. who has
for some time been In co-opnratlnn with
Professor Langley In this' enterprise,
gives a pretty clear description of how
the machine was tested, how it looked
and how It acted. Says ho:

of about loo feet tu the air. at the end
of a course of about a half-mile, when
the steam auve out und the propellei-j

further surprise, the whole. Instead of

From other sources it Is learned
that the principle In the Langicy aero

Kdward Lauterbach, chairman of tho
New York county Republican commit
tee, is credited in an interview with
these singular words: "Owins to his
quibbling on the money question, if Ma
jor McKlnley Is nominated at St. Louis
he cannot carry tho state of New York,
and cannot be elected president of the
United States." Mr. Lauterbach's
opinion fortunately is not of sufficient
weight to make Its expression danger
ous to anybody but himself.
The convention of German Catholics

we question its wisdom in urging that
Its membership refuse to send their

same; but any attempt to discredit or
oppose them would be likely to create
more evil than good.
