THE Kentucky congressman
who In a crude and rude way
recently voiced the fear that
the American people are be

evident from the discussion which his
outburst evoked that Ills soot is not a
The coming to tills country of the
bi other of the emperor of Germany on
u. mission of friendly import demands
no exorcise of sycophancy on tho part
of either visitor or host. From nil that
we have learned about the prince he
would be the last man to want from his
entertainers anything in the nature of
sycophancy. He represents one strong
and progressive people who send him to
greet another people of similar origin
and similar In kind. These two peoples
have never been at enmity one with the
other, but they have not at all times
been on as good terms as' bhould and
will prevail. Misunderstandings, not
of governments so much as of public
sentiment, have occuned; not at any
time serious but In elTeol bad. The
coming of the German pilnte supplies
an appropriate occasion for brushing
away these petty memories and culti
vating frankly mutual good will.
For his own sake, as a. man or merit
and character, and for the sake of the
public which In a sense lie represents,
the American people are going to give
him a cordial and hospitable reception.
It will have In it no considerable ele
ment of snobbery, neither will it be Ko
austerely and severely democratic as to
excite doubt of the genuineness or our
democracy. Tlio time has happily gone
by in this country when it was deemed
a necessary proof of Americanism to
boorishly disparage the customs, man
ners and traditions of other countries
and affect disdain for their representa
tives. In .the larger view which has
opened to the intelligence of America
it seems becoming that every reason
able effort should be made to cultivate
peace and friendship with nil other na
tions and peoples, while allying our
selves to none. So far as this can be
promoted by social amenities and his
tory shows that they are of large in
fluenceIt becomes not less a duty than
a pleasure to make welcome on the soil
of republican Ameiica those who rep
resent other forms but not other alms
We have no doubt of Prince Henry's
hbllity to stand the pressure of the
nest few days, but we are not so sure
of all of his entertainers.
UNTIL last Saturday, in all the
years of tho United States
senate, amidst its many
scenes of passionate speech
tvnd deeply stirred feeling, never bad
one senator used a physical blow upon
iinother senator while the senate was
In session. There have been encounters
cAsIde the senate chamber arising
from feeling generated within; and on
ono or two occasions tho floor of the
pennte has witnessed fisticuffs alter ad
journment. Out the blow struck Sat
urday by "Pitchfork" Pen Tillman, a

Tlic Small College.
i much In what the
tor of the Presby-
General assembly, the
Itev. Dr. Mlnton, said yester
day, In tlie course of his lcuuirks In the
First Prosbyleilitn church, about the
relationship which should exist be
tween thu college itml the university.
Ho deplored the tendency to invest
great sums In Immense lnstl(utlons of
learning at the expense til' that more
Intimate and pergonal form oC Instruc
tion obtaining In tho small college,
where the personalltv of the teacher
has a chance to encompass the pupil
and to draw out or that pupil what
should be drawn out and to put' In what
should be out In.
Perhaps one of tile reasons why many
old-fashioned business men, like the
-Mr. Cruuo of Chicago who, as we men
tioned the other day, lias gone to the
trouble of publishing a book decrying
the usefulness of a college education In
commercial life, do not place more con
fidence In the f-o-callcd higher book
learning is because of Into years the
tendency in university development has
been awav from the best iinpiovemcnt
of the Individual attendant and almost
wholly in the diiection of securing the
most costly buildings, equipment and
applinncos. While this has greatly aug
mented the opportunities for higher
education it has by no means increased
the quality of the average of that edu
cation. Fine buildings, expensive lab
oratories, ovoi crowded libraries and
ample funds for the employment ot
famous lecturers help to a higher edu
cation when the foundation has been
properly laid; but when so much effort
is expended on setting them that little
thought remains for the personal equa
tion of the individual pupil there Is a
situation not wholesome in its final In
fluences upon life. Much better, as Gar
field said, a log with a boy on one end
and a Mark Hopkins on the other.
Immense combinations and central
izations may be wise in the business
world, especially where tho production
of quantity with economy is the great
consideration, nut tho production or
well-cultured character is of enough
Importance to wariant the taking of
all necessary time, patience and pains.
Dr. Million's thought that the small
college, surrounded by u Christian at
mosphere and permitting the establish
ment of intimate personal 1 elation
between those who teach anil those who
are to be taught, constitutes the saving
grace in our whole educational system,
and that it must come again into the
old time popnlaiity, has much to lecom
All hour'befoie the l'.ivk Avenue
hotel in New York caught fire the Seventy-first
legiment armory, just across
the street, was burning fiercely; yet it
Is claimed no alarm was sounded
among tho hotel's sleeping guests. If
this assertion Is true it ought not to bo
dtflleult lo 11 the responsibility for Sat
urday's frightful loss of life. '
The ninistry as a Career.
FTRP noting that In the decade
just past the number of div
inity students in tills country
has baldly more than held its
own while the number or students in
law and medicine almost doubled, a
contributor to the New York Sun asks
the pertinent question, Why aio young
men so reluctant to undertake the du
ties of the ministry as a life work'.'
Then, of course, he answers, saying:
"I do not find myself able to Indoi.se
the proposition that the ferment of
critical scholarship, the unrest of creed
and doctrine, has played an Important
part In diminishing tlio number of can
didates for the ministry. I doubt
whether tluee out of five among the
laity care a button about such ques
tions. It is the ferment about social
questions, the commercialism which
Is sapping tho very life-blood of
churches in cities, which causes a
young fellow to think twice before he
risks advanced views of social conduct
on the stormy waters of a fashionable
parish. Let lilm gain the leputation of
men like IJishop Potter or Dr. Ilnins
ford and he will lie able to speak fear
lessly without standing In jeopardy
every hour. Put, as a neophyte, con
formity is tho price he must pay for
assured position. lowover careful his
teaching, out hu goes If the wealthiest
parishioner, usually tho most sensitive,
and who Is relied on to make up tho
annual dellelt which confronts most
i lunches, objects to u close personal

The writer in the Sun proceeds to
point out tin) small Incomes of tho min
istry as a rulo and the harsh fate
which awaits tho average minister
when advanced In yeais; and that
leads him to offer a suggestion as to
how the ministry may best bu recruited
so as to preserve its Independence and
coinage. He would have young men
of Independent means encouraged to
study for a lire-work In the pulpit and
In the activities which cluster about It.
Hither that, he contends, or a celibate
priesthood. In his judgment, tho bread-and-butter
problem must be elhninntiM

plausibility In these arguments, Cer

of young men with means is heartily

It will, upon reflection, be perceived
that to take from tho ministry the
