Little Likelihood of a Strike. r-r V1K ANNOUNCEMENT of T the retusai 01 the operators to confer jointly with the United Mine Workers of In reference to anthracite while a disappointment to America matters. 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. AVhlle it is not Impossible for police men to err In making arrests, nn oc casional mistake were better than un rebtiked street-walking. Some critics of the pi went city administration evi dently mean to rind fault, no matter v hut Is done. Fnir Play for Labor. THE EXTENSION of the old age pension plan over the 15,000 employes of the Metro politan Street Hallway com pany of Now York, insuring for faithful tiervants of long service adequate pro vision In their period of outworn use fulness, Is. uuo(her econoinlo sign of the times. Tnlsi'Olppuny, upder the signal ly elllclent ilmnugunient of Henry H, A'rcclund, a graduate from the ranks, had already gained favorable i epila tion for humane treatment of em ployes and jisii result had built up a qualltp-f'5H;vlce'-imong those em ployes which Is the envy of street rail way managers of other cities, The ad ditional step now taken Is really an evolution. The hccrct of Mr. Vreeland's success In dealing with the labor problem, so far uslt can be explained apart from the personality of the man himself, lies In the fact that he has discountenanced utterly-jjll. forms of socialistic alms Klvlnanpd lias made It u rule to do nothing' for the men under him tltut they are not willing, when given the chance, to do for themselves. He has provided chances for the employes un der his direction to occupy their hours of lefaure profitably In wholesome iimusemcts, jn social relations und In hearing good muslo and Instructive lec tures. And he has personally Inter ested Himself in beelng that they have taken advantage of those chances, The result s that while the wages paid on tho lines under his contral are no higher thun on competitive Hues his company has tho pick of t)ie njeu and employment on tho Metropolitan la sought-after, In the March number of the World's Work ,th,ero s nn Interesting descrip tion of a "model' fuetQiy In Holland position h .si 1 .11 which the wilier, Dr. William H. Tol 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 dren. For Holland the picture Is beau 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. When these factors shall have been exhausted It will bo time to con sider what next. i. AVall street has now seen Secretary Shaw. He got there tho other morn ing before anybody of Importance had yet came down town; did quietly und quickly what he had to do, and then went away without a single note from a brass band. Tills was certainly a shock to AVall street traditions, but be fore Secretary Shaw gets through, we shouldn't bo surprised to hear of more. Close It Up. V THE leports which are being sent out from Washington In re lation to the attitude of those leprescntatlves who represent beet sugar constituents to the admin istration's demand for justice to Cuba be correct namely, that they will stand In resistance to the last then there Is just one thing for loyal republicans to do and that Is to combine with patriotic Democrats and crush this greedy re bellion. if a little coterie of men is to hold up the whole government and write bad faith upon the national escutcheon as well as fallme upon tho most deep ly cherished policy of the late AVilliam McKinley, now being faithfully carried forward by Theodoie Roosevelt, then It is time that the country knew the names of the obstructionists and all that Is behind their incomprehensible course. e read that another effort is to be made to pacify these insurgents. This has been tho cry for weeks past, and so far as we can see they are no nearer to pacification than at the beginning. That being true, it is time to try another tack. If honeyed words will not avail, use a club. The country is grow ing anxious to have tills vexing matter settled. It Is believed that the country could bear up under the withdrawal of Lord IVumcefote, the British ambassador. iTKInley's Doctors Not Yet Paid. -IIE ROCHESTER Democrat 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. A noticeable fatness In the advertis ing columns of the New York Sun fol lows the settlement of its long-standing dilferenees with tho Typographical union.

FOR tho last two years France, Ger many and Austria have been swept by an artistic enthusiasm for what is known as the modern art, or L'Art Nou veau.
