the retusai 01 the operators
to confer jointly with the
United Mine Workers of
In reference to anthracite
while a disappointment to
many, Is at least better than prolonged
suspense. AVo must say, In all candor,
that wo cannot perceive the nlsdom of
that refusal, it wns UlsmareU who
wild that It never paid in diplomacy
to Ignore substantial facts; and we
know of no fact more substantial than
that the United Mine AVorUers of
America at this time represent abso
lutely tile labor employed in the an
thracite coal mines. AA'hether this
would have been true had the present
powers that be among the opeiators
two years ago taken heed of the eoun
hel given them by certain individual
operators of ions: experience, is now a
profitless Inquiry; the fact Is that it is
true, and that it is a truth of practi
cal importance in the immediate fu
ture of the anthracite Industry.
To deny a hearing to the represen
tatives of the miners, lest it should
constitute a technical recognition of an
already substantially recognized fact,
is a development of casuistry too sub
tle for us to comprehend. However,
It, also, ia now a tact; and the peitl
nent question In reference to it is:
Shall It be made the signal of another
war? Under tha authority placed by
the Indianapolis convention ia his
hands and in the hands of the execu
tive board, which is pretty much the
same thing, John Mitchell could un
doubtedly force a light and bring to it
ii degree of strength- absent fiom the
struggle of two years ago. But, on the
other hand, the operators are now in
better shape for a tight than they were
then. There is no presidential elec
tion pending; the unification of control
of coal properties has progressed since
than and the financial ability of the
operators to endure :i long and final
contest is much superior now to what
It was then.
Tliete considerations, no less than
the fact that the mine workers are
now In the main contented in the en
joyment of the ten per cent, advance
and by no means eager to jeopard
what they have for the faint possibility
of securing more, undoubtedly point in
the direction of peace. John Mitchell
is too good a general tu risk the con
sequences of a desperate strike unless
he Is convinced that the chances of vic
tory are on his side; and it Ii Impossi
ble to llgiiio out such a preponderance
in this case.

limn, thinks offets numerous Ideas for
American adaptation. In It the factory
owner is a kind of venerable patriarch,
enjoying a benevolent despotism over
the dolly affairs or his Industrial- chil

tiful! but for a country ot dnuocrnllo
Ideas nnd Ideals, like the United States,
Is Is of small exemplary value. The
American worklngumn, though easily
led around by professional ngltators,
does not want to be coddled. He Is,
however, tuifreeptlble In tho long run to
liberality and fair play. The old-age
pension jihui comes under this head.
So does the provision by employers of
opportunities for labor's self-government.

and unronicio in a umeiy
editorial calls iiltentlon to
the fact that congress has
still neglected to perform a "national
duty" by falling to provide for pay
ment by the nation and government
of the debt incurred through the ser
vices of the eminent surgeons and
physicians who attended President
McKinley during that terrible week
last September after he was shot down
by an assassin.
Tho murderer in that case did not
aim at the man but at the president.
McKinley's life was declnied a forfeit
because he stood for government and
law and organized society.
There has never been a thought in
tho public mind, or withholding full
and ample compensation from the
learned and skillful men who so nobly
and so ably devoted their professional
services to his welfare between the
hour he was shot and the moment of
his death. AVhlle unreasonable de
mands should not be granted, it is
hardly probable that any of that char
acter have proceeded fiom that quar
ter, and niggardliness would bo justly
resented by the American people. It
is true, as tho Medical News says, that
"the surgeons in attendance literally
staked their futme careers upon tho
exercise of tliei.r judgment and pro
fessional skill under the distressing
and inconvenient circumstances in
which they were placed"; and It Is
equally ti lie that "the unfortunate ter
mination of the case does not lessen
the moral responsibility of the na
tional government to provide due com
pensation for tills."
AVhy should tho government be so
slow about paying its Just debts?
Neaily six months have passed since
President McKinley's death, and over
three months since congress assem
bled, it Is time now for action.

"The Scotch Result."
William Inglis has a story which illustrate
what he calls "the Scotch lcsult." lie told it
to the Alclinc aociation, the other night, i-ajs
the New York Tribune, together with seveial
stoiic of hi experiences in 1'iance, when he was
an art student in l'aii.
Mr. Inglls was a isitor at a Scotch yaclit club
on the Clyde during1 a legatt.i week, and one
night he Was called on for a btory. Knowing,

man, who met a policeman and ask.d him tlie
"Three o'clock," said the policeman.
"01 didn't beai," said the li Mini in.
"Three o'clock," the cop yelled.
"Mime, Oi didn't hear that, either."
'I lie cop then bit him tluce whack on the
head with his club. "Piil 0ii hear tlntV" lie

They, one and all, wcie blank, and tlowly each

"Siiddenij," Mild Mr. luglis, "I saw an old
Scotchman in the far corner break into a biuile.
