Hwt how 1u remedy these conditions
our contemporary does not ny, If, In
deed, It hnows. The probabilities are
that no remedy Is possible short of the
formation of n strong corporation to
take over and systematize the business
of cab-lcttlng along the linos of the two
railroad companies above mentioned,
who have been compelled to enter this
field in protection of their pnssengcis.

HOM reliable reports It ap
pears Hint Hie conservatives
have carried the day in tho
matter of the Urumpacker
resolution for a committee to investi
gate the restriction of suffrage In the
various states. There is to he no iur
ther action in this matter at the pres
ent session of congress. The Demo
cratic leaders who rait-ed tho bogey cry
of "force bill," "revival of &ectional
ism," "bloody shirt" and "sure method
of insuring Democratic leunlon" ap
pear to have carried their point, which
was to scaio the Renubllcan managers
Into pigeon-holing- the whole matter.
The excuse given for postponing the
proposed Investigation is that "public
opinion has not yet ripened," bat it
would be Interesting to know by what
process of reasoning it is assumed that
public opinion needs to iipen before
congress shall be warranted In inquir
ing into an alleged slate of fuels in
direct conillet with the constitution of
the United States.
The fact which seems most closely to
lit the attitude of the majority is that
among the men now in the lead in the
house are some who lack either tho
courage of their convictions or are de
llcient in convictions. Their view is
ttoo eloselv at the immediate and too
little at the ultimate effect. The de
nial of suffrage to the negro, as prac
ticed in various Southern states, can
be strongly defended fiom-lho stand
point of the Southern white; but there
is no possible defense of using the
negro to get a large representation in
congress and then disfranchising him
by grossly unfair discriminations. Eith
er the negro must have the vote which
the highest law of ihe land declares
that he is entitled to, or the men who
lestrlct tlie sulfrnge must lestrict their
representation in proportion. That is
tho lawful and the equitable view;
therefore, It is also, in a broad Inter
pretation, such as statesmen should
take of public Issues, the expedient
That this wiong can ever be lighted
without mflllng Hie feutheis ot those
who politically profit by its continu
ance wo do not believe. If tho repub
lican majority is walling for such a
time to come to pass It may as welt
postpone the subject Indefinitely. But
if a great and notorious wiong can
be committed and gloried in cm the
door of the American congress and
those who know it to be a wrong and
whoso sense of fairness calls for Its
righting are iil'ruid even to undertake
an Inquiry Into the matter lest it should
offend the beneficiaries of that wiong,
a condition of affalis Is indicated which
we should hesitate to believe true of
the Itepubllean party.
110 New York court, of ap
peals has decided that work-
Ingmen organized into la
bor unions have the right to
strike to pi event the employment of
worklngmeu not so organized. The
opinion of the court says:
"They (worklngmen) have the right
to strike, provided tlie object is not lo
gratify malice or Inflict Injury upon
others, but to secute better terms of
employment for themselves. A peace
ful and orderly strike is not in viola
tion of the law. A body of men. hav
ing organized for purposes deemed ben
eficial to themselves, have the light, if
they feel It is detrimental to interests
of their organization, to refuse lo
work. Their reasons may seem Inad
equate to others, but if it seems to be
in their interest as' luembcts of an or
ganization to refuse longer to work, it
is their legal light. So long as woik
nit'ii must assume all the lisk of Injury
that may some to them through' tho
cai elessness of coemployes, they have
the moral and legal right to say that
they will not work with certain men,
and the employer must take their dic
tation or go without their services. A
labor oruanization is endowed with
precisely the same legal right as is an
individual to threaten to do that which
it may lawfully do."
This is sound law. The converse of
it is also sound: namely, that if an
employer does not wish to employ ex
clusively worklngmen organized into a
union he can dismiss the union workers
and take the consequences. In that
event, his property is not to be injured
and men whom he hires are not to be
nttacKed or intimidated. Liberty with
in the law Is the fundamental rule in
this country and it works both ways.
In tho long ran, dictation on either
side, enforced by threats or the might
of superior strength, is a poor basis of
mutual prosperity, since It leads to
almost endless 111 will, sullemiess and
friction. Much the better plan is for
both employers and employes to try to
be just to each other: to cultivate
friendly instead of hostile relations;
and to desist from recklessly locking
tho boat that holds both. The (IoUIp.m
Rule is Hie best rule, notwithstanding
its apparent absence from many vex

What Once Was Waste.
N THE excavations made in th
vicinity of tho court house samite
large quantities of peat have
been removed. It may be inter
esting to know that two uses for this
substance have lecpntly been found.
One, ,by a prouess not divulged, con
verts '.tbf iieat Into n. highly carbonized
fuel resembling coke but much more
Jasliner In combustion nnd also cheaper.
The claim Is mndo In behalf of this dis
covery thut It will provide u superior
Mtbstltutu for anthracite' coal when
the supply of the latter becomes ox
haunted. The attention of men of large
wealth has been turned toward the
piocess unci the Information which wu
have Id that they me favorably im
pressed wilh it.
According to Kuhlow's lierumu
Triulo RovJijw, t means of using peat

ldeacbd "and dyed. The vegetable

this yam la Its adaptability (o the

iirses a more effective regulation of eab
charges. This the municipality has the
power to do nnd by ordinance has tried
to do, but like many other wise laws,
this ordinance Is not properly enforced,
Says our contemporary:
"When the ofllcers of the llohenzol
lern were here a good Illustration of the
outrngeotiM conditions existing- ninong
cabbies was furnished. These ollleers,
who were unacquainted wilh tho city
nnd had only a limited amount of time
to spend In seeing It, had to pay $3 and
$7 to cabmen for being carried liom
Herald Square to tlie Christopher street
forty. The result was that tho ofllcers
.remained on shipboard rather than run
tho lisk of such treatment. Such an
outrageous and disgraceful scandal as
this might have been expected to arouse
some outburst or publlo sentiment, lint
Now Yorkers proved too hardened and
loo resigned to tho sltuntlon, and the
sumo condition continued to ptovail,"
There are two items as to which the
Tribune demands reform. Klrst, a
lowering of ihe lurlff which tlie city
permits the cubmen to charge. Fifty
cents 11 mile Is the lawful charge: anil
twenty avenue or seven stteet blocks
constitute a mllo; yet tile Tribune as
serts that In Philadelphia. Chicago or
llostou the rate Is much lower, and It
adds: "For it shilling one can cover n

.Moreover. In l.undon If one lias any dis
