this rcahon the bill which the commit

hazing will be generally commended.

of the academy shall suppress nil chal

by compiling a I'ourt of Inquiry and

CONJEOTURKS as towliat King
lMward may say to parlia
ment on Thrsday In reference
to the South African war
have bcn freely offered by vailous
cntcrpilsing coi respondents, who have
in many rates volunleetcd to put
winds In his mouth expressive of hor
ioi at the long continuance of hostil
ities and favorable to caily peace te
gardless of price. Hut these are all
nullified by Lord Unglan's announce
ment, chronicled in yesterday's Trib
une, Unit "Hoops, not peace eonrrnlb
sIoiihh, are going to South Africa."
While .it mid leslstancu lemalns, the
only way to peace la thtougli muelcnt

and equaliy true in the Philippine.
There can bo no doubt that the pub
lic opinion of Gioat Hrlt.rlrr, In com
mon with that of the ilvlllzcd wot Id,
has undeisono a change In Its atti
tude tow aid the Uocis. Where otlgln
ilb" It was contemptuous It Is now
"holly icspcctful and to a notable de
kHu lull of ndmliatlun for the mat
eloiih personal couijgo and enduiancc
which the Uoem have shown. It would

Rtubboin, too. and notwithstanding
thai ull thought of glory or glamor
has. long since depat ted from tho cam
paign which Kitchener Is trying to
close, up in South Africa, the con
cclousnesa Is deeply present with every
norjnul Uugllshman that to stop now,
after all that has been done and sac
rificed, short of a complete assertion
of britlsh sovereignty and power, un
questioned and impregnable ftom the
Cape to the Zambesi, would bo to cap
a series of blunders und dlsappont

Idiocy that would spell humiliation

A Strike and Its Consequences.
NOW THAT Chicago's groat
building trades strike has
come to an end, it is in
structive to review what it
has accomplished nnd to consider
whether, after ull, It has paid.
The stilko, or lock-out, fur It was
n case of both employes nnd cmployeis
going on stilko at about the same
time, waa instituted mbre than a.
car ngo and came us the culminating
feature of a long series of petty ills
agi cements and annoyances which
hud almost piostinted the building in
dustry In Chicago. The men btruck
for higher wages. Th' c.upenter.s,
who constituted the inalnstny of tho
Ilulldlng Trades council, wcic getting
42Vi- cents nn hour for nn eight-hour
day, und they demanded CO cents. The
other woikmen made demands In pio
pot lion. On the other hand, the con
tractor declined that tho exactions
of the Ilulldlng Trad's council nnd of
the walking delegate system of declar
ing sttlke.s cm puiticulur Jobs iitbi
trarlly had become so Insufferable
that they would not resume business
lolatlons with their foimer employes
until these evils had been icinedlcd.
This was the situation which pro
longed Itself in deadlock for mote than
a year, practically suspending the en
tiro building operations of Chicago,
keeping 23,00ft men idle, involving nu
merous scenes of disorder and turbu
lence nnd Inflicting a Ios3 upon busi
ness which, runs high Into the millions
of dollars. Various cffoits to nrbl
tiato failed, the contractors remain
ing steadfast in their dolci initiation
not to i enow foimer leUtions with
the building Unties unions until they
could have assurances that their busi
ness would no longer be capriciously
tied up by sjmpathy sttikes or by tha
snap judgment of walking delegates,
inferred without notification or ap
peal. At the outset of the stiuggle the
Building Tiades council hnd u mem
bership of '.'7,000, including bricklay
ers mid stone masons, hod cut i lets,
plasterers, pltimbets, btldgeand sltuc
luial It on woikeis, steam lltlcis, elec
tticlanx, ga flttcis, mosaic workeis,
slate nnd tile roofers, ouipentors,
pulntei?, rtono cutters, lathers, sheet
metal wotkers, bollcrmakers, tunnel
miners, paper huugcis nnd teprescnta
tlves of ten to fifteen smallei tiades.
One by one these unions tell by tho
wuyslde. Pi lor to tho settlement with
the carpeutiiH the membei.ship of tho
council had fallen to 10,201. With the
withdrawal of the r,,500 ciipcnlcia,
who have always been its backbone,
the council collapses. This with
drawal Is a condition of the settle
ment reached on Thuisday of last
week between representatives of the
carponteis nnd contractois.
The other conditions of that settle
ment nie thnt wages shall be ns before
the stilko, except the, concession to
the meu-of n Saturday hulf-hollday at
their own expense; that there shall
be no limitations as to the amount nt
work a man shall perfoim dating his
working day: that thete shall be no
restriction of the use of machinery or
tools; that tlieie shrill be nn lestiie
tlon of the use of any manufactured
materia, except prison-made; that no
person shall have tho right to Inter
fcie with the woikmen during wink
ing hour; that the use of apprentices;
shall not be prohibited; that the foie
irrnn shall bo the agent of the cm
plojor; thut all workmen are tit lib
erty to woik tor whomsoever they
see fit; that nil employers ato nb lib
city to employ nnd dischaige whom
soever they set) fit.
Provision Is made in tho settlement
that nil disputes which may heieafUr
arise dining the two-year poiiod cov
eied by tho agioement uu to be bot
tled by iiibitiatinii, und theio ohnll be
no stoppage of woik pending u set
tlement. A joint uiblttatlon commit
tee ot contractois und labor men Is
piovldel for, with u disinterested um
pire to adjust tho tiouble If the arbi
tration board falls. Tho employment
of non-union rnerr b tho conttactois
Is not prohibited, but it Is stipulated
thut no non-union cat pouter Is to br
emplojcd on tho same Job with u
union eutpenter. Non-union men In
other tiatlrs, however, may woik i Ida
by side with him without off-rise.
The same contiactor who einpliycj
union carpenters on one Job niayt em
ploy non-union caipentcrs on another
nt the Mine time. It is explicit!
Mated, though, that the contractors
shall rrot puy any carpenter less than
the union wngo .scale, and that no
union carpenter shall work for less
than tlie union wngo scale.
This, it will bo seen, Is a complete
victory for tho contractors; but nt
the same tlmo It Is n vlctoiy for bo
ciety, Inasmuch as it does away with
costly blrlkes und substitutes a fair
machinery of arbitration. That is tho
one gain growing out of tho long
struggle; but nt what a frightful cost
it Is purchased!
While congiess is tin ashing about to
discover a means of ubollshlng hazing
at West Point, u freshman ut the
Agtlculturnl college, at Irnslng, Mich.,
appears to have hit upon a feasible
plan. When a puity of his fellow stu
dents approached his room declaring
their purpose to ".stack" it, ho met
them at the dour with a loaded revol
ver and threatened to shoot the first
person who made a move. The thrent
was effectual, and huxlug nt Lansing Is
temporal lly suspended.
An Inter estlng plnn Is credited to Dr.
ltuthrock, the ntuto forestry commis
sioner, who pioposes the establishment
of camps on thu various forest reser
vations of the state wheiu persons suf
fering from consumption, Hnd finan
cially unable to go to California. Ari
zona, Ploildu or the AiHrondueks for
their health, e.ur spend several months
in tho summer In the hope ot gaining
lelief. Dr. Uothrock's Idea Is to pro
vide suitable habitations for tubercu
lar patients und let them have tho flee
ue of tho same as long and us often
as they may deslio He will not nsk
the state .for an iippioptlallou because
ho Is conlldent thut the necessary funds
can be provided thiotigh pilvuto means.
All he wants of tho state Is permission
to try the experiment. Titer o are u
number of reservations In different
portions of the commonwealth which
by reusorr ot their elevation and puro
iitmospheic are eonsldcied to be ud
vuntageous us abodes fin consump
tives, and If tlie onnjlng out of his
ptoposltlon enn contribute to t hocking
the spread of this Tnost Insidious and
wldespieud of prevalent maladies the
expeilment would be fully Justified. It
Is certain that additional measure are
needed In this dliecllon.
On the Island of Hollo, the tuvoilte
method of one of the Insurgent patilots
In arms against the American Imudeis
Is to bury his Yankee captives up to
their necks In a bed of sand, nnd then
cut ort their herds'. Another expression
of his belief In the tiod-glvon right ot
self-government Is to lead his pilson
ois nut Into the pinz.i und lortuitj them
to death by cutting nit strips of flesh
with ii bnln. Doubtless these patriotic
ceremonials have Hie full suppoit of
the American "untls."
As a means of smashing the so
called lumber trust a Kansas solon has
Introduced a bill making It the duty
of the oouit to tllsinNs nny suit lor the
collodion of a debt If the defendant is
able to show that the plaintiff Is In u
combination to conttol pi Ices or re
strict trade. The equity of aiich a law
would hinge largely upon the composi
tion ot the Juiy. The average Jury in
Ivans. is would probably make short
work of the lumber octopus.
