Here Is an Increase In one year of
SI per cent. In the number of persons
charged with crime and only 29 per
cent, in convictions. Last year the
proportion of convictions to persons
accused was 1 to 13.7; this year, 1 to
14.1: last year's percentage of ignored
bills was 70.S9, this year's, 71.02.
It needs no elaboiate argument to
prove that this Increase of Inefficiency
In the treatment of crime, whether
the Increase be attributable to the
manufacture of criminal litigation for
fee-swelling purposes or to defective
machinery In the administration of
punishment or both, is most significant
and alarming. That It puts a burden
on the taxpayer far in excos3 of the
natural lncrea&e In the valuation ot
his propot ty is self-evident. In view
of the foiegolng figures doubt may
"ell be entertained that everything Is
being done which could be done to
keep down this rising tide of artificial
litigation and especially to draw a
cordon of necessary restraint around
tho creative agencies of this useless

In the existing situation it is obviously the
true policy of tbe Democratic minoiily in the
legislature to aid in tho election of an Inde
pendent Republican for speaker of the bouse,
What did the Democratic minority
get for Its surrender to the Insurgent
blandishments last session? Nothing
but a capacious gold brick. The Demo
crats are wiser now. They will not re

The Amended Canal Treaty
TODAY In the senate a vote
will be taken on the two
amendments to the Hay
Pauncefoto canal treaty
which have received the approval of
the committee on foreign relations, and
which will undoubtedly pass. One of
these strikes from the original draft of
tho treaty Article III, which binds the
contacting parties to bilng the treaty
to the notice of the other powers and
to Invite them to adhere to It. This
elision Is advocated as essential to the
Integrity of tho Monroe doctrine, al
though the opinion seems fur-fetched.
Tho other amendment adds an article
setting forth that the present treaty Is
to be understood as superseding In Its
entirety the Clayton-Bulwer compact of
1830, which pledged us to a partnership
with Great Britain. As thus amended,
including the Davis amendment which
was adopted one week ago, the treaty
will provide In substunco as follows:
That, with tho understanding that
, the Clayton-Bulwer ticaty Is now void,
ythe United States shall bo fiee to build
Vand exclusively provide for tho iegu
Vlatlcin and management of an isthmian
'''canal, subject to the following rules:
1. The canal shall be free and open, in time o
(jwur as In time of peace, to the vmseU of eom
AWeuo and of wr of all nation, on teims of en-
tire equality, bo that there thall be no discrimin
ation ugaliibt any nitlon or Its citizens or sub
v jects in respect of the conditions or charges of
traffic, or otherwise.
2. Tho canal hlull never be blockaded, nor
shall any right of war be exercised nor uny act
of hostility be committed within it.
3. Vessels of war of a belligerent thai) not
' rcvlctual nor taku any ttoiea In the canal except
,",ko far as may bo strictly necessary: and, tbe
. transit of such vessels through tho canal shall, be
effected with the least possible delay, in ac
coidance with tba regulations in foicc, and
0 vith only such intermission as may result froii)
, ,tlie necessities of the service. Prlzts shall be in
(' all respects subject to tho samo luks as vessels
of war of tbe belllgeients.
4. No belligerent shall embark or disembark
troops, munitions of war, or warlike matirials
In tbe canal except in case of accidental hind
rance of the transit, and in such casa tbe
transit shall be resumed with all possible dis
patch. 5. The provisions of this article shall apply
to watera adjacent to the canal, within three
T marine miles of cither end. Vessels of war of a
,' belligerent shall not remain in such waters
' ',lci.ger than twentyrfour hours at any out time
i except In case of distress, and n such case shall
A depart as soon as possible; but a vessel of war of
Tone belligerent shall not depart within twenty
y lour hours from the dtparture of a vessel of war
' of the other belligerent. It Is agreed, however,
A that nono of the Immediately foregoing condl
A tlona and stipulations in section numbered I, 2,
8, and S, of this Aitlcle. shall apply to meaj.
urea which the United States may find It nece.
Hn to take fyf securing Jy its ovvu-forica the

of public order.
0. The plant, establishments building, and
all work nectMifry to 0x6 fonstruillon, inalnten.
nnre, and operation of the canal shall be deemed
to be part thereof, for the purposes of Ihli con
entlon, nnd In lime ol war ai In time of peaco
hall enjoy complete Immunity from attack or
Injury by bellfgeretil and from acts calmlated
to Impair their Usefulness m part ol the canal,
7. No fortification shall be erected command
ing the canal or the waters adjacent. The
tJnltrd KtutM, however, slnll be at liberty to
mnlnhln such military police along the canal
as miy bo necessity to protect it against law
lri'ticHS and disorder.
This makes the canal ns distinc
tively an American property ns If It
vote located wholly within American
territory. The fact that It Is to bo
locnfed In two foreign countries, who
will have something of their own to
hay ns to the conditions of Its man
agement, appears to weigh somewhat
lightly In tho minds of the senatorial
majority at Washington. As origin
ally drawn, tho treaty secured for tho
United States every possible advant
age derlvnble from the canal without
ruflllng the other nations which have
nn Interest, legal or moral, In tho en
terprise. As amended, wo tell thes-3
other nations, In polite language, to
go to Hnllfax, and It will be Interest
ing to observe whether in years to
oonio they may not recall and recipro
cate the Invitation.

AS A REBUKE to bolting and
party treachery, which has
. bpcome a profession In cer
tain localtles, the Philadel
phia city Republican committee has
adopted the following rule:
' "All persons who desire to become
candidates of the Republican party In
the city and county of Philadelphia for
congress, senators and members of the
general assembly, Judges and for all
city and county offices, shall deliver to
the Republican campaign committee
before the date fixed for the holding of
the primary elections at which thev
wish to be candidates a pledge In writ
ing that they will faithfully abide by
the decision of the convention before
which their names may be uresented
for nomination, and that they will loy
ally support the candidate or candi
dates of the convention and of the Re
publican party, and that pledge shall
be forthwith filed with the records of
said campaign committee. In case of
candidates for ward offices, said pledge
shall be filed with tho officers of the
ward executive committee In each
ward. The pledges of all candidates so
filed shall be publicly presented and
read In all conventions before the bal
loting for candidates shall begin."
The adoption of this rule has fulfilled
expectations by eliciting a chorus of
frantic shrieks from the professonal in
surgents whom It compels to get Into
regular line or make permanent choice
of other political Identification. The
rule is drastic but the conditions
prompting it appear to be imperative
In their need of energetic treatment.
When minorities after fair defeat in
open strife within party lines set up
insurrections and plan fusions with the
political enemy, carrying Into this ef
fort at party disruption every known
artifice of political hlghwaymanshlp,
there must be a drawing of the party
lines and a census of numerical
The ballot law recognizes the right of
a majorjty to prescrbe party rules and
throws around that right the sanction
of the commonwealth. Those opposed
to such a rule as the one just Quoted
have at all times the right and oppor
tunity to' organize a party and enact
rules to their better liking. Factional
ism such as Pennsylvania has had dur
ing the past five years tends Inevitably
to this result.
The Boers are demonstrating that it
Is possible to be upon the retreat and

An Unprecedented Honor.
AN EXECUTIVE nomination
peculiarly agreeable to tho
newspaper fraternity has
just been made in the ap
pointment of Charles S. Francis, editor
and proprietor of the Troy, N. Y.,
Times, as United States minister to
Greece, Roumanla and Servla. Twenty
nine yenrs ago President Grant con
ferred the same honor upon Mr. Fran
Pls' father, the late John M. Francis,
founder and for well-nigh half a cen
tury editor of the Troy Times, The
senior Francis, who afterward servod
his country with distinguished ability
as minister to Portugal and later as
minister to Austria, took with him to
Athens to serve aa his secretary the
son who now Is to return to tho court of
Greece Jn the capacity which his father
fulfilled nearly a generation earlier.
This double honor Is without prece
dent in the American diplomatic) ser
vice, but that it Is thoroughly deserved,
oth by the personal merit of the two
recipients and by the influential and
progressive Journal which they each In
turn have owned and directed with
such conspicuous ability and success,
will bo freely conceded by all who are
familiar with the facts. The new min
ister to Greece is a man of exceptional
energy, Influence and public spirit.
Whatever ho undertakes ho carries

will make an indefatigable representa

ONE HUNDRED YEARS
(Copyright, 1000, by It. E. Hughes, Louis
ville. AT THE CLOSE of the eighteenth cen
tury the costume of man and woman
underwent marked changes. Men'a eoata
became very Ions and sloped off
from the waist, where they were hut
toned both upward and downwatd; their
sleeves were moderately tight with small, close
fitting cuffs, and their collars cither were high
and doubled biLk stiffly, or were mule to spread
upon the shoulders; the flaps of their pockets
were placed ut the back and close together, and
all puffing and lace and embroidery were laid
nsldo. The flaps ot waistcoat, If retained at all,
were short, and the garment itself was made
open at the throat, the frill of the shirt appearing
from under It. Tho brcfchei, fitting very tightly,
either were cut short at the knee, or carried a
few inchca below it, and there buttoned and
tied with strings, knee buckles, except for court
dresses, having gone out of fashion; the tight
breeches at this time were frequently pudongcd
ta pantaloons to the middle of the calf cf the
leg, where they were met ny half top-oots. A
rather large cravat was tied loosely in buvvs
about the throat; tho hair, worn long gensri'ly,
was powdered and tied In a queue, nnd the hats,
round In form, were cither of moderate I eight

A curious slory is being told conieriiing t lie
facts which caused the publication of one of the
most popular novels of the day. Some months
ago a New York publisher heard that John Uri
Lord, a prominent chcniUt in Cincinnati, b id
written a rather remarkable story. He had
no idea, however, of committing it to print. It
had been written purely as a solace and an
amusement, and the manuscript was being bound
to tuck away in his library, where it was to
remain until his death, The publisher, of course,
begged permission to see it. On reading it he
immediately recognized it aa a novel of great
force, individuality and interest. The author
was unknown, and the risk miy nt first have
seemed hazardous. The story was called "String
town on the Pike," and "serialized" in a liter
ary paper. So deep was its effect and so instant,
tti.it before the (l.ite of Us publication in book
form 10,000 copies bad been sold a remarkable
feat for an author then almost unknown. A sec
ond edition was put on the press and sold within
two weeks of the date of publication; a third
edition was hold in the next week; while the
fourth edition is now selling unci a fifth is in
preparation fall within one month from the date
of publication. And why is all this? Because tho
characters arc absolutely alive, absolutely Aimrl.
can and truthful to the last degree.
