How Long?
ONi: OF TI1K most clirctKe
arguments brought by labor
leaders iigalnsl trusts Is that
they are liable to enforcn
their sunieinacy by tyrannieal mutli
oils, such, for example, as crushing out
miiiiII eoinpelltors or demanding of
transportation companies preferential
lutes by means of secret rebates. It
has also been claimed that trusts re
I'tricl the liberty of the retail dealer
by making war upon him If lie dares
to handle goods not bearing Ihe trust
is tliere nut danger of labor unions
using mill justifying, when used by
themselves, the weapons which, when
used by others, they have bitterly con
demned'.' To make our meaning clear,
let us cite an instance.
In a certain city not a tliousaud
miles from Scianton, two merchants
leased store looms in u newly con
structed building well situated for
their pin pose. They did not learn, un
til after they had signed leases and
spent much money in litting up their
stores, that the owner of the building
had had trouble Willi the. labor unions.
The. lii st knowledge they had of the
matter was through notice from a
labor union that they had been boy
cottPil for moving into a non-union
Their trade is mainly with working
people. They have always been on
friendly terms with Ihe labor unions.
3Iany a time, during strikes, tliey
have extended liberal credit to strik
ers, borne times at a considerable loss.
This apparently counted for nothing in
the present case. The boycott was de
1 Idccl upon in star chamber fashion
nnd clapped on before its victims had
had any opportunity of defense. It
was an illustration of tyranny as bold
nd unadorned as was over credited
against the most domineering trust,
and wo arc sorry to say that It Is not
an exceptional case.
How long will American manhood
Dl.ind for such practices'.'

HUNG CHANG was a typi
cal Asiatic. Vcw careers
have been more instructive
to the student of Oriental
jiolltlcs than that of the stntor-nuin,
soldier and courtier who has passed
away amid the wreck and partial ruin
of the kingdom who.-e destiny he has
during the past (ll'ly years so largely
Influenced In its relation with the
western world, M Huns Cluing was
as enigmatical to Occidental concep
tions as this philosophic: Ideals of his
countrymen are esoteric to our per
ceptions, lie knew vastly mote about
us than we knew about him or tho
motives which dlieeted his actions, nu.l
he was as conscious of our Ignorance
as wo wero unconscious of the ulterior
aim of his policy and tortuous diplom
acy. He could not contiol the trend
of events from the west as It surged
on with a tidal Impact on tho shores
of the Middle Kingdom, but ho did
what It wai possible fop him to do to
hold bad; the inundation by conces--Ioub
and placatlons whoto tho morn
dei)filtif Kuroiieau or American do-mands--voutd
have proved fruitless or
wotfse. 'Jfu was a great statesman In
Thociiso In which ho and his more
conservative countrymen understood
stafesimuinhlp, but his life and works
were tin alien to our notions of political
progress and expediency as Oriental
obr-curanlism and reaction could be.

Mr. Croker's reception of the news
is worthy of .consideration by the

admits that Tammany's defeat was due
to a lack of vote".
Why Not?
MONG the many messages nf
congratulation received by
Mayor-elect Low was out:
fiom Secretary of 'War Hoot
cxpiessiug his satisfaction at the vic
tory gained for the principle of Jude-
I'emiuji;; municipal pontics. "1 coml
ilently believe." he added, "that you
will give the city an administration
which will make lis people unwilling
1 vcr again to saerillco the interests of
good home government for the pre
tended benefit of a national party or
ganization." It is singular that one usually so
clear-headed as nihil I5out should in
dulge in day dteams on this subject.
The endeavor to separate municipal
from state and national politics, to
make fish of one and llesh of the other,
has been tiled for 11 great many years
in a gieat many places, under all kinds
of promises of success, and it lias in
vaiiably failed. Iiy this we mean tlmt
there has not been power enough
among Its suppoiters to keep munici
pal politics and other politics apart.
Mr. Low's administration will doubt
less begin as a non-partisan experi
ment, but inevitably it will take on a
partisan character, not peihaps from
intention, but in obedience to human
nalui e.
Men who do things have to be p.ntl
sans; have to bo for or against each
other, which is tlio basis of partisan
ship. And so long as party organiza
tions aic maintained in state and na
tional affairs, those interested in them
will uso them in municipal affairs In
preference to going to the trouble and
expense of keeping up separate politi
cal establishments. It is undoubtedly
tine that In city affairs party Hues are
not as stltf as in federal alfairs. liul
generally speaking, the parly align
ments correspond, and we can see no
reason why 11 party tit to administer
the government ol a state or a nation
should not be equally competent to ad
minister the government of a city
