NOT ONLY tho Innitest, Victor

history. Tho chronology which wo

notable political Incidents compacted
within tin: G3 1-2 years of this gracious
Mjverelgnty; but It was In the mental
nnrt moral progress or tho Kncllsh
people duilnir the Victorian era that
history will ilml Its most giatlfylng
Ileadeis of Thackeray have had In
sight into tho social conditions and at
mosphere of court life under the sway
of the reprobate George IV. It was
into this air of debauchery and un
cleanness that Victoria was called In
her lSth year by the death of the color
less AVilllam IV. At that time it may
In truthfulness be 3aM that Intem
perance was the rule iininni; the men
and chastity probably the exception
among: the women of tlu court. How
by quiet tact, staunch virtue and
faultless example Victoria changed all
this, until In the later yeais of her
reign the lltltlnh couit was recognlze.l
throughout the woild as the cleanest
in Kuroric, Is a fact properly citable as
among the most noteworthy of her
achievements, for It reveals the sphit
of her telgii and the uplifting nnd
wholesome trend of Iter soveielgn in
lluences. What Victoria did for tho Improve
ment of the manors and morals of her
Immediate environment she did with
equal tact for the encouragement of
general education and philanthropy.
Not only by money did she give more
in aid of humane purposes than any
predecessor or contemporary, but the
benefit of her counsel, patronage and
influence could always be countel upon
in behalf of a worthy purpose. The
democratic spirit of these mojern
times does not piesent the biime per
spective as does history for a cotrect
view of tho outlines of monarchical
influences and achievement; but In the
universal nnd Intensely personal grief
into which the British people are now
plunged may be found a testimonial
to Victoria's worth which no ordinary
sovereign of colorless iccord nnd nega
tive character could hope to command.
As facts hitherto held In confidence
are revealed, we shall know presently
that Vlctoila was much nioie than a
llgurc-head sovereign. The world will
learn that until almost the last minute
she fullllled conscientiously and ably
tho functions devolving upon her
queenly ofllce, directed the course of
ministries, shuped the ends of foreign
nnd domestic policy, and 'was In large
degree Instrumental In the choice of
the tight men for grave emergencies.
This did not til ways appear on the bur
face. Since tho death of tleorue III
no English soveielgn has undertaken
to iuIo by sheer force. Vlctoila em

An act approved May 18, 1S03, is
now on tho statute books making It
legal for one or both patties to an
industrial dispute to petition courts
of common pleas to nume a hoard of
mediation and arbitration. Where
Joint application Is made, court may
grant a rule on each party to select
three citizens not oonrcted with tho
Interests of (;lthqr party as arbitrators.
The ooiirt Is to select throo pther mem

trators are appointed. A majority or
the members of the board shall make
a decision, which, nfter proper attest
by tho secreary of the board, becomes
a court record and Is to bo filed for
safe keeping. According to the act,
the finding Is to bo "flnat and conclu
sive" but no provision for enforcement
Is mndo and the act therefore stands
on the statute books as a dead letter.
The bill lhsplred by Governor Stone,
while not yet made public In detail,
contemplates the plnclnB of a kind of
police quarantine around tho mini,
mill, factory or shop in which a striko
of magnitude occurs. It provides
substantially that upon notice given
by the mine or factory Inspector's de
partment, that such a strike Is In pro
gress, and If within three days follow
ing neither of tho parties In conillct
shall have named three arbitrators,
tho governor, In tho Interest of ths
public order, and without waiting for
further summons, shall order to the
scene of trouble a sutllcleut military
foico to do elther or two things. If
the strikers name arbitrators and the
employers decline or fall to name
them, the mine, factory, mill or shop
Is to be Fcliteil by the commonwealth
and closed until arbitration Is ac
cepted by the employers. If the em
ployers name arbitrators and the
strikers decline or fall to name them,
the commonwealth Is to use Its mili
tary power to afford protection to all
men who shall elect to take the va
When both parties have named three
arbitrators each, the president Judge,
upon notice from either side or both
sides, shall name one or three addi
tional arbitrators, the whole number
to constitute a court with full power
to try, hear and decide tho issue.
Nomination or arbitrators carries with
it a pledge to accept the completed
llndlng, but should cither party arter
ward disobey the verdict of the arbi
tral court, the commonwealth Is to
use Its military power as before, either
to close tho working place until the
employers obey, or to protect other
employes In case the strikers shall re
fuse to return to work. The proposi
tion to assert tho commonwealth's
power In this manner Is defond-jd by
the governor nnd his advisors upon
tho ground that It Is a Justifiable! ex
erclso of the police function to prevent
the disturbances of the public pence

Supremo court would sustain the pro
posed act against attack on the score
The question here touched upon is
of such vast nnd far-reaching Import
ance t(iat thorough discussion rather
than hasty conclusion Is called for.
This Is worthy of widespread partici
pation so that when the legislature
shall act It may proceed wisely. One
thing is certain: The complex organ
ization of modern Industry Into Im
mense and often rival" camps, cmploy
ei s merging into great corporations on
the one hand, and worklngmen, on the
other combining In powerful labor
unions and giant federations, has
brought forwnrd economic and social
conditions beyond the control of for
mer legislation on this subject, and
civilization is called upon to revise Its
laws. Is It powerless to do this ef
fectively and Justly? This Is for tha
near future to determine.
The proposal to abolish stamps upon
bank checks of small denomination Is
socialistic. All checks or none should
Electric Conveyance of Freight.
FOlt MANY years one of the
most perplexing problems in
New York state has been
what disposition to make of
the Erie canal. Millions have been
spent on this unsatisfactory waterway
and millions more must be spent un
less it be abandoned, but those who
argue for Its abandonment have hith
erto offered no substitute.
It has remained for a former city
surveyor of Utlca, N. Y., Mr. J. H.
Ehrehart, to supply this missing link.
In a letter to the Engineering News he
proposes to construct an electrlo
freight railway on the canal right of
way and work a revolution In the
costs of transportation. Such a road,
he points out, would traverse tho en
tire state without a grade crossing,
and by constructing u tunnel four
miles long southeast of Schenectady,
f i eight can be hauled from IJuffalo to
New York and raised leas than flftv
feet In the entlte distance, and part
of this amount of elevation Is only re
qulied to modify the grades In Roches
ter, Syracuse and Utlca. As to tho
possibilities of electrical transmission
"The state has unlimited water
power at Niagara; It has 70 feet hmd
at Lockport for all the water It can
carry to that point; It has 00 feet head
nt Rochester, with the great storage
reservoir at Portage nt its command;
it has 800 feet head at Rome on tho
Illaclt River canal, with largo storage
capacity In tho Adlrondacks; It has 40
feet head at Little Falls on the Mo
hawk river; It has 200 feet head in the
Mohawk river from Schenectady to
Troy, which can all be utilized, with
storage reservoirs on Schoharie creek
and East and West Canada creeks.
Economical transmission is now pos
sible at fifty miles, and will probably
soon reach seventy-five miles. Thus it
will require but two stations on tho
Hudson river, ono about Fonda on the
Mohawk, and one between Syracuse
and Rochester, to be operated with
steam with coal for fuel. Even in these
last districts there is considerable
water power controlled by tho stat
that can bo used.
"Tho three electric locomotives of tho
Baltimore and Ohio railroad have been
in constunt service for several years
nnd have proved a completo success.
These locomotives haul thirty-five
loaded cars irpttfrttw'f69i'r44e'
at tho rato of fifteen miles per hour,
and, running light, have mndo the trip
through tho tunnel nt fllxty-elght
miles per hour. These locomotives, on
nuch a grade us can be built from Buf
falo to New York, could haul fifty
pressed steel cars with a capacity of
fifty tons live load, 2.G00 tons of freight
per train, and the average work with
such freight as hns been handled by
canal could average 2,000 tons live load
per train, not six months, but twelve
months In the year.
"A double track railroad, with middle
passing sidings, handling only car load
lots, estimating on a basis of eight
million tons east-bound and two mill
ion tons west-bound freight, allowing
the railroad, with equipment and ter
minals,' to cost $100,000,000, could movo
freight for less than $1 per ton, or S
cents ier hundred, 3 cents per bushel,
I car load lots, at owner's risk, whether
sixth class or first class. We can bet
ter appreciate what this means when
' a local rato could bo made bo that
Rochester manufacturers could ship to
New York for 414 cents per hundred,
Syracuse 4 cents, Home nnd Utlca. 314
cents, Amsterdam and Schenectady 3
cents, nnd Kingston and Newburg 2
cents per hundred; or, In the caso of
the latter cities, for a less amount per
ton than It costs the coal dealers to
deliver a ton of coal to a private resi
dence anywhere In the city."
While the foregoing Is or greater In
terest to New Yorkers than to others,
It has a suggestive value which Is gen
eral. In many communities are canals
1 about ready to be condemned. In other
communities are abandoned railroad
rights of way, already graded and
easily convertible Into roadbeds for
electrlo freight trains. To this must
be added the numerous passenger
1 street railways that hunger and thirst
i for legislative permission to carry
parcel and bulk freight. Soon these
possibilities will be realized. It Is
doubtful ir the steam railroads, with
all their potency at state capitals, can
much longer postpone the Inevitable.
As a matter or ract, many shrewd
steam railway officials are quietly pre
paring to occupy the electrical field
themselves, furnishing tho capital to
figurehead trolley corporations with a
view to pre-empting available fran
chises. In a private letter to a friend In
Washington General S. M. B. Young
of the army, who has been In the Phil
ippines from tho beginning of Ameri
can occupation, writes that the natives
are much more difficult to deal with
than the Indians of the United States
because they have the same savage in
stincts, with habits of civilized people.
He adds: "Tho encouragement they
receive from tho United States and the
delusive hopes held out to them by the
antl-imperlallst politicians Is the prin
cipal cause of prolonging the trouble."
No comment Is needed.

Sir: When Sir Charles Dilke was a joung man

The influence of Queen Victoria on the histori

The opening of the century found Croat

whin his hand was staled by the annnunrc
men that Nicholas I hail Miccerded Paul cm the

backbone of the lca.-ue.
This news would bale startled most generals;
