Mourccs. yet thesu Inteiesta have taken
no practical stops to plve their opin
ions loproM'ntatlon In the convention
which Ii.ih boon framliiK the proponed
icpublle'H fttnd.iuiental charter. Tho
merchants and planter, who conHtitute
i he teiili.stautlnl element of the Island's
population, nnd pay it Brent majority
of all tuxes contributed to the hiip
port of the government, have abstained
Horn all participation In Insular poli
tics, and have left tha field free to the
levolutloiuiry type or agltutor and
Place-hunter now In command.
Naturally these men view with
dread the constitution of asovernmont
In which power will be largely vested
In mi In ('sponsible nnd non-producing
class, but like many merchants
nnd business men In the United States,
they have not learned that the way
to prexent Mich n contingency Is to
t light down to practical politics
and out-votc It. They deserve no
sympathy If their failure to receive
oonsldoiatltm n elite to theli failure to
demand it. It is a familiar fact ot
evcry-day life that people got Eoma
t lines less than they ask for, but very
rarely more. The patient nnd retir
ing citizen, who expects that In the
busy whirl of affairs somebody will
Mop aside and look after his particu
lar Interests, while he neglects them,
Is Indulging in a vain hope and laying
up ticasures ot disappointment
Sooner or later the pioporty-ownlnpr
ii.tercilH In CuIli must awaken to
'I'lr lot-poiiHlbllltlos. When that time
r.mios I hey will recognize, and not
onlv recognize, but nor upon tho
knowledge that their mture piosper
!iy Is Intimately imohed In the pros
neilly or the I'nltid States: that the.
mat hots for ihelt tobacco nnd sugar
no to I'u had mainly In the United
Sl.itv. and that the quickest and best
woy in avuio favorable access to
ilioo inuikPt. and to entourage the
interthaiige .tf trade which is ut tho
bottom of all social piogrcs Is to be-
"inn .1 p.iit .if th" rt.lted States.
Whether this will come before the
NpoihiKiit of an Independent republic
has bien put to a trial or not, (he
fuiuio only can leietnilnr, but the
m ry fact that everybody with .my
knowledge (if the situation recognizes
that annexation Is the ultimate solu
ilou of th? whole problem establishes
a stiong practluil reason why those
who i-dillv want annexation and for
rtlwni It Is in the nature of economic
s.iivaiion .-hould not fall into the
puorllc habit of hesitating to express
liielr opinion nnd to shape means
towaid that end. This Is said not from
any splilt of greed to aequir? "Cuba,
but wholly from the standpoint of
i'uIm'k own best Interests, and it Is
about time that the Cuban people who
know what Cuba's real interests are
diould develop the spirit of willing

An Index of Public Sentiment.
AMONG the Interesting freak
bills of the present legisla
tive season is one befoic the
general assembly of Illinois
providing for a "public service coin
mission" to regulate the contiol of
corpointtons of a quasi-public charac
ter, liy Its terms the control of all
railroad, telegraph companies, tele
phone, electric light, power, heat, ex
press nnd water companies would pass
Into the hands of seven men to be
named by the governor. This commis
sion Is to llx the rates the corporations
shall charge, the wages they shall pay,
the number and kind of people they
shall employ. It would nlso have
power to pre&cilbe the amount ot
stocks and bonds to bo Issued, and one
of Its duties would be to see that no
coi poratlon paid a higher dividend
than fi per cent.
Manifestly this bill Is an Impossi
bility: yet laughing at It does not 10
niovo the fact that It Is an expression,
distorted and fanciful, It Is true, of a
public belief, which Is growing stead
ily In the United Stntes, In favor of
more stilngent public regulation of
public utilities. There Is hardly n com
munity of considerable sizes In the
countiy which Is not awakening to a
consciousness of the truth that in the
easy-going methods of regulation here
tofore prevalent It has been getting
the small end of the bargain. There
are exceptional cases of conspicuous
honesty nnd fairness In the dealings
of quasi-public coiporatlona with the
people whom they serve, but these are
so tare and beautiful as to piove the
rule that the tendency of such cor
porations, when not restrained, Is to
operate upon the Vanderbllt Idea of
"the public be d d." There have
been local Illustrations In which lates
have been raised without a word of
parley or "by your leave" beyond the
ox parte assertion that tho Increase Is
fair. As to the truth of this assertion
the public has no means of learning
save through Individual litigation; and
the average citizen Is rarely In mood
or funds to meet the bother and cost
of lighting a powerful corporatism
through the vatlous courts essential
to a final decision; he naturally pro
fers to submit, for a time, to what ho
regards as extortion and, while sub
mitting, muse his wrath against a day
It Is this patient nursing of popular
wrath which constitutes the danger of
an excess of testiictlve legislation
when once tho avalanche moves. The
American people on tho average are
fair. They are not conllscationlsts.
They do not, when at a normal con
dition of mind and temper, want any
corporation w hlclt serves them with
light, heat, water or lapld transit to
do so on terms that, with good man
ngement, will make impossible a fair
profit on tho capital and enterprise
actually Invested. The straightforward
method of dealing with them Is al
ways tho best method In the long run.
because it wins their confidence and
respect. The great trouble Is that In
tho majority of Instances tho man
agers of publlo utilities, In their eager
ness to shape tesults to tho liking of
the stockholders, fall Into the habit ot
forgetting the other parties In Inter
est. They try to bluff or cheat the
people; they rely on their ability to
corrupt legislative bodies or to win
legal battles on technicalities by rea
son of their supeilor power to employ
ablo and Ingenious counsel and to meet
the expenses of frequent appeals, all
the whllo overlooking that in bathing
the public's Intuitive senso of light
they are simply toying with a volcano
that ono day may buist forth and
sweep them to Inglorious destruction.
Vo continually hear complaints In
regard to tho lack of confidence in
spelling on the pnrt of tho rising
generation, und yet it would probably
be impossible' to induco the, educational
experts of the country to abolish tho
system of teaching pupils to read he
fore they know tho letters of the ul-
phabet. Tho return to tho good oh
method of standing pupils up In a row
and lotting them "spell" each other
down, would, In u few years, elevate
the standard of spelling In our public
schools to a plane that would leave
no cause for regiclM,
An additional restriction upon Immi
gration Is proposed by Congressman
Adams In a hill providing that foreign
ers who have been confined In an asy
lum for the Insane, Idiotic and epilep
tic, before landing In the t'nlted Btates,
or who, within two yenra nfter their
arrival In the United States, shall be
come Insane shall be returned to tho
country whence they came. Tho pres
ent law simply excludes those who arc
Insane, Idiotic or epileptic nt tho time
of landing. As a result of an Investi
gation made by the Immigration au
thorities tho fact Is discovered that
while tho foielgn-born population of
the United States Is 10 per cent, of tho
entire population, thlrty-flvo per cent,
ot tho insane arc forclgn-born. It Is
evident, therefore, that wo have been
receiving a considerable number of
persons who should not have been per
mitted to land under any circum
stances and whoso Immigration has
doubtless been expedited from the oth
er side. Them Is enough Insanity ns It
Is among our own people without In

Instead of taxing savings banks'
sin plus one per cent., as originally
propscd, the Odell programme In New
York state has been changed to put a
tax of ono per cent, on the par value
of the secuiltles held by taxings banks
as suiplus. This, It Is estimated, will
yield $"0,000 of state revenue nnd yet
represent not more than seven cents
on every 3100 ot deposits too small u
tax to warrant the banks In teduc
lng the rate of Interest.
Tho tests of the recently invented

It is to be regretted that the report
that King Edward had pardoned Mrs.
Muybiick Is unfounded. The guilt ot
this woman, who claims to be inno

and It would seem that after the many
weary years kIio has buffered In prison
she could, with ptoprlety, be given tho
benefit of the doubt.
