ACAREEIt well-rounded, useful
and notable for Its high
standards of personal and
public honor was ended sud
denly yesterday In the death of "Will
iam H. Jcssup. Thev sense of loss is
made very lteen by the unexpectedness
of this summons; but consoling is the
Knowledge that no amount of prepar
ation could have added to the beautiful
simplicity and purity of the dead jur
ist's character or heightened the esteem
in which his memory will be held.
Though death came quickly ho was
ready to meet it as he had been always
ready to meet the duties and responsi
bilities of life.
-Villlani II. Jessup belonged to the
class of fine, old-fashioned gentlemen.
Of English ancestry, he Inherited anil
personified the best of both Old and
New Englund traditions. Vrom this
clean stock he derived the high ideals
which g.iidcd him safely through a
varied career and kept him ever true
to conscience and God. The Yale thor
oughness of intellectual training built
on this solid foundation of moral worth
a beautiful superstructure of elliciency
and with natural talent put him easily
in the forefront of his environment.
Leadership came to him wholly through
merit. lie was not presumptuous or
assertive; on the contrary, ho had
modesty not without diffidence, lint
duty was his unvarying watchword and
he followed where it led.
The story of his life, as briefly
sketched in another place, misses many
of the lovable personal traits which are
difficult to picture in print, yet Is tin
inspiring narrative and n most fitting
memorial. It shows a character and n
career which, with those of Its kind,
form the strongest bulwark of our in
stitutions. Our community and our
country, though poorer since it closed,
is yet rich in tho memory of it and in
tho example which it places before the

Tersely Put by (leiicrnl Wood.
X AX article which will appear In
tomorrow's issue of that superior
weekly journal, the Outlook,
General Leonard Wood, the ac
complished and efllclent chief repre
sentative of our government In Cuba,
explains clearly and tersely why- an
Immediate grant of tariff concessions
to Cuba Is necessary, both to Cubans
and to ourselves. The substance of his
argument is contained In tho following
"Wo have pledged ourselves to es
tablish a stable government In Cuba,
and the far-reaching provisions of the
Piatt amendment have done much to
make such" ft government possible;
but governments are not maintained
by legislative measures solely; mate
rial resources are required. Cuba can
not maintain a stable government,
with all that it Implies, unless her In
dustries are hi such condition as to
produce sufficient with which to buy
what she ueeils and maintain and
build up a profitable trade with other
countries. Cuba's ublllty to maintain
a stable government under present
economic conditions, in which she,
hardly out of the ruin caused by the
war, her great industries paralyzed, Is
obliged to compete with the bounty-fed
sugars of Europe and the highly pro
tected sugars of the United States
single-handed and without assistance,
is open to grave doubt, and, if we
leave her under the present tariff con
ditions, we do so knowing that. It Is
highly probable that she will not be
able to maintain such a government
as we have declared she shall estab
lish and maintain. This is a position
the United States cannot afford to
take. It means the ruin of the great
Industries on which the Island de
pendsa ruin which will be .totally un
necessary and benefit no one, and will
destroy for all time tho good-will of
the Cubans for us and their confidence
In our good faith."
We am not called upon, In General
"Wood's opinion, to give to the Cuban
people anything which would embar
rass us. All that is necessary is a mod
erate concession on sugar and tobacco,
in exchange for similar concessions af
fecting tho articles which we shall ex
port lo Cuba. "Xo American industry
'is threatened by reasonable conces
sions to Cuba," says General Wood,
and he aptly adds: "And it cannot lie
demonstrated that a reasonable con
sideration for Cuba will be other than
beneficial to the United States."
tt has been Intimated in the discus
sion of this question that the United
States has done enough for Cuba; that
the Cuban people are -an ungrateful
lot, unfit to run a government of their
own; that the Teller resolution tying
our hands from annexing Cuba was a
great mistake, etc. Some of these as
sertions may be true and some partly
true, but the fact remains that we are
pledged before tho world lo start the
Cubans off on a stable footing, and It
would ill become us to grant with one
hand and draw back with the other.
Cuba's future must be attended to
when it arrives, If such a solecism is
nllowable. Just now the United States
Is dealing with Cuba's present, and
every consideration or national honor
and good faith requires that our part
in the launching or the now republic
should be complete in its generosity.
The report that Mrs, Roosevelt and
the ladles of tho cabinet have been
physically exhausted by tho social de
mands of olllelul life may bo exagger
ated. But It Is not to ho doubted that
the strain Is wearing upon them. The
pneo should be eased.
Some doubts havo been expressed as
lo whether tho movement of the Daugh
ters of the Confederacy against "Uncle
Tom's Cabin" has been provoked by the
sentiments of tho play or the eojnpaules
that produco It.
