fT UV. AllTU'l.K In yesterday's
I Times headed "Another
JL Jlogey Scares The Tribune"
Is about the win at example
of mendacity In Journalism that wo
have ever seen, Tt H a dishonest and
an unprovoked attempt on the part of
the Time?, by misleading statement
and false innuendo, to an ay organized
labor against Tho Tribune, and why'.'
Hecnuse The Tribune has been coun
seling conservatism; because It has
been advlsliiK our working people to
use ptudence, care and self-control:
because It has been solicitous for that
general and uninterrupted welfare of
the whole community without which
neither labor on the one hand nor capi
tal on the other, nnd Incidentally
neither the circulation of the Times
nor Its advertising' patronage, can be
pei manently prosperous. This line of
leasonlng Is exactly the line which Is
being followed by Samuel Compere,
and John Mitchell and every other In
telligent and effective leader of organ
ized labor In the United States who
feels restrained from mad Impulse by
the weight of grave responsibilities;
and yet for offering It as a general
pi oposltlon lecommended Impersonally
for all to whom It may apply, The
Tribune Is viciously and maliciously
attacked by the Times, absolutely
without provocation, Justlllcatlon or
excuse; Is scornfully held up to view
as a "corporation organ;" and the ef
fort Is made to draw upon It, to Its
business injury, the 111 will of the gieat
hosts of men nnd women who labor
within the limits of Its circulation.
This wanton attack, we may add,
lonies with the more peculiar grace
fiom lMvuiicl J. Lynctt, who owes his
present ownership of the Times nnd
largely his present business standing
to friendly Influences set In motion by
the president of The Tribune com
pany. A gaibled expression of Justice
Harlan niado lu an extempore speech
on Chief Justice atnrshall has been
magnified Into an Indication that he
believes the Constitution automatically
goes with the Hag. The time Is ap
proaching when Justice Harlan will
express his opinion on this subject
ofliclally nnd It is sate to guess that
It will be the opposite of the foregoing
Tho Gentleman from Hawaii.
OON AFTHH Hubert W. Wil-
coxS was chrscn delegate
in congtess from Hawaii
charges were made against
lilm with a view to Influencing con
gress to expel hlm-NR It expelled Uoli
rts of Utah. Tho charges were simi
lar to the charges against Hoberts but
worse. It was alleged that while Wil
cox was n student at n military col
lego in Turin, Italy, he married an
Italian princess, Glna do Stlgllano by
name. Tho twain came to this coun
try nnd lived for some time in Cali
fornia, where a daughter was born.
Wilcox, It Is alleged, subsequently per
tuaded his wife to return to Italy and
tho next thing she know Wilcox had
wedded the princess Theresa Ka.sholi
lanl, n descendant of one of the early
Hawaiian kings. Wilcox claims th
popo annulled his first marriage but
the, Italian wife asserts that this U
'false, and Hence her petition1 to con
Kress, tp turn the alleged bigamist out.
Hun oI stilus on
.2S " .273
Hut now a more serious offeiico is
charged ngalnst Wilcox. Letters of
his to Aguinaldo and other Filipino
Insurgents nru exhibited which come
pretty closo to making out a cnsr of
treason. Borne ppeclnicn culllngs fiom
Ihciri, showing his mental ns veil as
his moral cnllbro urn appended; "I
am already made up my mind," ha
tnys, "to Join with your In your coun
try ngalnst tho Amei leans." "H?
tween Oeneral Aguinaldo's determln
atlqn nnd myself it would bo 7vcry Ut
ile ehtinceB left to tho invader army
f the United States to conquer your
country' ."Tell General Aguinaldo I
, nn aheady given my cervices for your
country." "I am thinking to go to
assistance to Aguinaldo ngalnst tho
Invaders nnd hypocritical yankees, the
carpet' vHigsetitlUtlcIan ptla.", "It Is

the'IInlted fetates influence in the east
f would have glory nnd honor and
tny work would bo appreciated by tho
Filipinos. jChlneses and .Tapancses and
Arnbs, It is my great folly to oao
nil these chances',"
It is evident that the country had
a? narrow escape yf'hcn Wilcox, Instead
of joining Aguinaldo and .diivlng the
American Invaders into the pea, deter-
mined to seek the suffrages of his fel
low Knnakas nnd Invade Washington.
Hut It may bo doubted that Hawaii
receives much luster from such a rep-leietitutlvc.
To the question, Is actions crime on
the Increase, a partial answer Is re
turned In the annual report of the city
magistrates of Clrcntcr New York. In
1S90 the number of persons arrested lu
that city charged with felonies was
4211'. If the Increase In crime had been
equal to the Increase lu population the
number of arrests for felonies should
have been CG9t In 1900. As n matter of
fact It was SR38.
TDK 1MIESKNT libel law,
enacted In 1897, Is certainly
fair, so far as It goes, but
It does not go far enough.
It ptovldes. very properly, that no
publisher can be prosecuted twice for
the came crime, and says Hint If the
matter charged is, lu the opinion of
the court, proper for public Informa
tion, the truth may be given In evi
dence to the Jury. A state
ment proper for public Informa
tion, If true. Is not libel, nor without
constitutional amendement can any
statute make It libel. A statement
pioper for public Information, It true
in the main, may be Incorrect in cer
tain particulars and yet not consti
tute a crime. If by reason of lnac
cumey damage Is done, the publisher
doing It certainly ought to pny such
damage as, In civil action, a Jury may
Itnd, provided It Is a. reasonable
amount. In the Judge of trial may
well be vested discretionary power to
reduce an excessive award.
A statement which would be proper
for public Infoimallon If true, but
which Is untrue In the main averments
and which dUcloses to tho Jury rea
sonable presumption of malice In the
Intent of Its publication, Is criminal
libel, nnd should be I mindly punished,
even though true In Incidental details.
And, finally, the persistent reiteration
or a statement which may have been
originally proper for public Informa
tion and In the main true, but which
through lapse of years or by reason
of popular condonation of tho offence"!
charged has lost pertinency should,
upon Information sworn, be admissi
ble before a grand Jury, nnd If the
grand Jury doteimlne that It icpre
sents malice, Indictment and trial
should follow, as in any other case.
In other words, the Indecent ex.
posuie of nn out-grown past should
bo outlawed by a statute of limita
tions. This will trim the longest
clnws of buzzard journalism.
A desire to get back at Hanna seems
to be one of the chief factors in the
opposition to the shipping bill. That
is a poor standpoint fiom which to
view public duty in a question of na
A State Excise Commission.
IT IS PHKDICTRI) In correspond
ence from Harrlsburg that legis
lation will be enacted this ses
sion to take away from the
judges the power to grant liquor li
censes and to place It In the hands
of a state excise commission. This
proposition will provoke factional dis
sent based on the contention that It
would stiengthen the political power
of the state administration. And the
extent to which this dissent will pre
vail among the people will be deter
mined laigely by tho details of the bill.
These not having been announced,
consideration of the proposition Is
necessarily limited to the principles
The vesting in the Judges of juris
diction over liquor licenses places
upon them a task out of keeping with
the character of their olllce nnd In
evitably tends to surround them with
political considerations and necessities
which should not be. It is of great
impottance that the bench should re
tain the high measure of public re
spect which tradition nsslgns to It.
Hut this id often rendered difficult by
the annual proceedings In license
court, when the cherished theory of
law administered without fear or fa
vol Is fortunate If It does not get sadly
damaged by court practice. This Is
not to say that our ludges willingly
present on these occasions a different
front than when in the discharge of
functions more strictly judicial; It is
to point out a condition of fact un
watlsfactory alike to Judges and public,
for which the remedy Is to make excise
supervision a separate police task.
It would be Interesting to know what
there was lu the public cateer of Wll
Ham Cioebel to warrant any consider
able number of the people of Kentucky
In honoring his memory.
IN A KKTTKH to the Commercial
Onzette Mr. Edwin 55. Smith, a
substantial citizen of Pittsburg,
offers a suggestion on the sub
ject of the proposed new second-class
charter which Is pertinent and force
ful. He- writes:
"It may be a hardship, but It is not
Illegal nor neoessnilly unjust to sum

though honest and canable. for no mio

but It is neither right nor proper to de
privo tho people of the llbetty of choos
ing the officials who are to govern
them nnd to do ho for mere partisan
advnntnge is absolutely Indecent nnd
indefensible. A provision requiring nn
election to fill all olllces under the new
charter, within, say, thirty days after
its adoption, would do away with this
very serious objection, und would bo
welcomed and approved by all Just and
Without abandonment of the Monroe
doctrine, Cuba never can bo uncondi

Tl.tlr commanding ofllrer silenced them In an
Ingenious manner. The aergeant-major, awaiting

"Sir, I bellctc theie art complaints to be made

"Serge ant-inajiir," said the colonel, "let the

une. REAL STATUS OF CUBA.
From Hie Philadelphia Fir.
The Pulled State's In pledging "independence"
to Cuba pledged no more and no less a measurj
of national power than American nations turn
larly situated enjv. If the present constitu
tional contention of fulu were to call oter an
Fuiopcnn prlneo to head the new ttati the
United Slates would act as cutalnly and more
promptly than It did when a "eoiinill of nota
bles" In the capital of Mexico called over an
Austrian prince some forty .scars ago. A consti
tution may lie-, as Cuban papeis argue, a domes
tic Instrument, but It the new constitution
opened tho wat eten for such a financial supei
tlslon over Cuban railway and banking fran
chises by foreign ngencie-s as Uracil permitted
oter a generation ago under Hie empire, and
fiom which Hie republic seeks to extricate Itself,
the Fulled States would act without hesitation.
Cuban "independence'" docs not permit Cuba to
cede territory, to giant any i:uroan state a
iort or loallng station, to establish any but a
rrpublliiin form of goteinment or to mortgage
Its ereellt so ns to Imperil Its financial or admin

and the lights of all sum states etery manual
of Intel national last declares to be equal, yet no
American state to the south of Hie United States
has Hie power to do these things, and Cuban
"Inde-iKiidciice" as little permits thus. Pnless
(icncral (inincz has been mlsreportnl he lias de
ilaied that Cubans hate a light, If they prefer,
to inisgotrrii Cuba. It must be giately doubt
ed If Cuban Independence goes eten so far as
that. A the Supicmc court has wisely slid, the
Fuller! States lioleh Hie island as tni'tce, not for
the gotemment, but for the people of the Island.
"As between tho United States and Cuba," atd
Hit- Supreme couit, "that Island Is territory held
tu trust for the Inhabitants of Cuba."
This Is the cestui quo tnist or ward for whom
the Pulled States act', and, like any prudent
guaidlan, the United Slates Is bound to consider
til st and foremost the welfare of those for whom
Its ails the inhabitant to whom Cuba right
fully belongs and to whose cxclmitp tontrol it
will be surrendered when n stable government
shall hate been established by their voluntary
ce.ni.eiit. This pledge will be facredly kept.
Whether It w,i wise or fuvllsli or whether Cu
bans are grateful or ungrateful Is npirt fiom
the discharge of a solemn International pledge;
but this pledge committed the United States to
no Indefinite or unlimited independence, to no
wilful mlsgotemmrnt and to no administration
or constitution which docs not i epic-sent the teal
will and real Interests of the Cuban people or
"the Inhabitants cf tho Island." Win re a sov
ereign KouTiuucnt exists In a gitrn territory it
Is assumed that that govcitinuiit expresses the
will and represents the Interests of the people
oter which It rules and for which It speaks; but
this is exactly what does not exUt In Cubi,
There la no soterelgnty there, The "constitu
tional contention" Is not the sovereign reprc
sentatltc of a sotereign state, 'I he cfstuco and
element of soterelgnty is and remains lu tiust
in tho hands of the United States. There U no
"Cuban" gotrrnmtiit, and therefore today no
"Cuban" soterelgnty in Cutsin hands. "The
declaration by congress," raid the Supreme
court, "that the people of Cuba were, and of
right ought to be, free) and Imlcpcndcnt was
pot intended as u recognition ot an organized
government Instituted by the people of thit
It could not he. lty the treaty of ParK oot
trelRtity oter (siba pissed not In fee, so to
speak, but In trust to the t'lilled States, and
since but cne supreme sotiielgnty exists In any
one territory the only sotrrrlgn In Cuba todsy
Is this soterelgn power held by the United
States as trustee. Ily result, as the Supreme
court Justly atld, Cuba Is "foreign" to the sjs
tern ol law by which the United States Is inter
nally goterned, "foreign,' to use a technical
term, to Us "municipal law" as distinguished
from International law. Put being "foreign"
Cuba Is by no means left free from the rightful
and ncceaeary power of the Pulled States In
discharging Ha trust. This power Is to be
exercised, and the character and extent of Its
exercise are to be determined by the political
branch of our government. As the Supremo
court talc!, the present relation of Cuba with the
t'nlted Statin Is a polltlcat question, created by
tho political branch with which the Judicial
branch has nothing to do.
The Supreme court might as well be asked
to enjoin congress ngalnst declaring war as
against the steps needed to end conditions crett
ed by wir. Both are "political" acts, both ire
within the complete- ajid untrammcled discretion
of rongrrw. This power and this deelaritlon
arc not changed or altered beiause Cuba Is "for
eign" to the United States. This power and
this discretion both exist became the question I
"political," and It is "'political" because Cuba
Is "foreign." The Idea that the dictum of
the Supreme court that Cubi Is "foreign" leates
congress powerless to act In determining na
tional imllcy In discharging the trust assumed
by congress shows a complete misapprehension
of the language and meaning of the Supreme
court and of the precise elllTcienee between
the legal tnd contltutlonil and the public
and political powers of congress. The Supreme
court was at the pslns to sav that the steps by
whlih Cuba reached Its present position and was
to leatc It wore botli "political," both In Hie
power of Hie political branch of the gotern
ment. So. other conclusion Is possible. Any
other is prepostcious. So far Iroin precluding
action by congress, the utterance of the Suprmie
court points toward such action.
Hon. Thomas V. Cooper, In the Delaware County
The act of 1W7 Is weak lu gltlng too much
power to the court, and taking all power from
the- Jury. The latter should lute Hie ll.'ht to
ccnslder the fiefs, and us well what is for the
public wi'lfare, epeelilly when Judaea are them'
seltes candidates for gmVc. Our cluertitlon
goi-s to Hie effect that Jiidges urc then human,
like the rest of us. The law of 1V7 abolishes
the old legal nisxlm, "the gleatrr the truth the
gleater the libel," and that was the leal ob
ject, though it was hidden by a limit ulon of
ilaiiiiges of Injuries actually sustained. Is either
of these things Wholly right? The oil law
had Its defects; Is the new- free from them?
The old law protected public officers eten 'then
their conduct was publicly wrong; the new law
proteits none but tho newspapers. Not only
the public officer but the prltate citlreii If he
can In any way be connected with what Is or
may become a public abuse, Is denied all tub.
Our atato has lawyers and judges aide enough
and some editor broad enough to note the dc
fcits of the old s.tstcm, and to note us well the
defects of the new. The old muizlcd the pres
as to public characters; the new has promoted
the "yellow kid" Journal with Its rciklc seda
tions and attacks upon public and prltate elnr
actcrs. There ought to lie a safe line betttwn
the two a golden mean and Just now is pre
sented a good opportunity to Unci It. The ques
tion Is of wide Interest, for good Journals In
struct and clctatc the tone of all, while bad
ones ireate greater wrongs than those they pre.
tend to deplore, but upon which they thrlte.
Olte us good, wholesome libel laws, such as will
at one and the same time protect the fireside and
pennlt the bratest exposure! ot public vt longs,
and the right ststem will hate been icaclud.
Our state has sufferetl at both ends of the ejin-s-tion
and the fact Is known to all.
