foreseen that the Issue had none too far
to lie compromised, even when the ap

Hearst and Devery. ,
-w-MK LAY of Illness finds n
I bentitlfiil application In the
"JL nomination for coiiKi'ess of
Wllllani Itandolph lleiirsi by
William S. Devery. Hearst Is u mill
ionaire: Devery. If not one in the pluto
cratic sense. Is very near being' one, and
In any oilier country would be accepted
and classed as one, Hearst Inherited
his great wealth; Uevery certainly did
not earn Ills. Hearst has prostituted the
highest functions of Journnllsiu to gain
ami maintain n squalid notoriety. Dev
ery has acquired his political popular
ity by pandering; to the physical appe
tite of a poor and hungry section of
Xew York. Uevery will prove a more
Insuperable and Implacable foe to Hill's
presidential pretensions than (roker
ever did. Watch If this does not come
to pass. ,
Hearst Is no fool, although he some
times acts like one. Devery Is the em
bodiment nf disciplined vulgarity. He
Is practically Illiterate, bill he hits a
profound knowledge of human nature.
If t'roker vanquished Hill at every
turn, the boss had to cieate n. place for
Devery ul the head of the police force
of (iothain.' The ways of Democratic
politics in Xew York are . mysterious,
lull Iheie Is nothing very hidden in
Devery's rise to power, wealth and,
now, political const qlience. He forced
his way to the top and there he Is.
Iletweeii Hill and Devery, It Is a
choice between Ihe devil and the deep
blue sea. Tile lortllues of Hill Were
never so low. He hits stooped to a
socialistic propaganda to maintain Ills
hold upon Xew York Democracy, but
to give Ills hypocrisy the varnish of
sincerity, Iih rejected Devery's creden
tials as u delegate In the Democratic
convention, Devery had every whit as
good a right In his place there as I lit
committee who cast him oui at Hill's
Instigation. This has very natuially
aroused Devery's ferocity. This Is not
artilicial or political. It Is as instinct
ive as that of a rhinoceros and no less
remorseless. If this was the only trick
Hill had up Ills sleeve he played It very
clumsily. A novice in the political
game of Xew York slate anil city poli
tics could not have blundered more
tnttiously. Hill, moreover, misinter
prets the signs ot the times. The coun
try Is in no humor for socialistic
propaganda of superficial experimenta
tion. We have, unfortunately, too .much
of them In the social crucible to satisfy
almost the hallucinations of an an
archist. Devery at any rate has Un
acquired Intultiveniss of a policeman.
He Is a large property owner. He can
no more afford to preach socialism than
Hearst. The dual alliance formed be
tween Hearst and Devery Is less
strange than ti'ting. It is signillcant,
and, us far as David H. II til is con

A Problem in Education.
W II 11,10 the tumult and the
shouting in South Africa
have died down, Knglnnd
has by no means gotten
over her difficulties, and one of the
worst of these Is the problem of edu
cation for the children of the liners.
Knrly In the history of the concentra
tion camps, his majesty's government
established to the best of its ability a
system of kindergarten Instruction for
the children In the camps. At first In
struction was largely Improvised by
the aid of generous women from the
cities, wlio aclid as volunteers but in
many cases had more zeal than ettlc

brought from Knglnnil, anil they have
dune woiideis In the short time which
they have had at their disposal. A re
cenl Issue of the London Times prints
ti letter from lteuier's coriespomleni at
Harberlon descriptive of one of these
camp schools. The following extract

Manui'iiettirers' association, In ses
sion nt the Waldoir-Asloila Wed
nesday, O. P. Austin, elder or the
bureau of statistic of the I'nlted States
treasury dcpnrlluclit, delivered -.an In
structive address showing the gtowth ami
possllillllles of the Aineilcau cotton In
dustry. Air. Austin began his address by Hid
ing that tlie principal suggestion which
lie deseed to iiffel- to the cottuu inanil
raedilcis of the Culled States was that
the time hail now come in which tlu-y
might enter actively upon the task of
turning Into inauufactuieil form a much
larger share of tlie cotton which the
I'nlted States supplies to tin- win Id than
they have done In the past, I'p to HiIh
time the cotton nianul'aelurefs of Ihe
Culled Slates have apparently conleuled
themselves with supplying: the homo
market. In tills they have been extietiie
ly successful. Practically all of the cot
ton goods consumed In the I'nlted States
Is produced by Its own manufacturers,
Impnrliitluiis of niaiiufaettncd cotton
nmnimtlug to less than III per cent, of tin-
home consimipllon. The consumption oc
cotton tmimtritctiirc In the I tilt -it Slates
has Increased enormously and the lnanu
fnclmers have fully kept pace with that
consimipllon, The value of Ihe cotton
manufaetiireis of the I'nlted States was
stated by the census or IsTn at $I".ihi,wi)
and In l!Hi at JituniHi.niKi, or an average or
Jt,(l.-i per capita In IsTu and Jl.li! per capita
In l'K. Hut the fact Mint prices have
fallen more than one-half meantime,
while the per capita consumption has not
materially changed, Indreat-s that the
quantity consumed per Individual has
greatly Increased, and this is sustained
by Ihe fuel that the amount of cotton
annually consumed by American mills
has more than quadiupled since IS70. The
fact that Ihe nmiiuracturers have fully
kept pace with a consumption which has
quite quadrupled since IS7 anil have dur
ing recent years begun to seek markets
abroad suggests that they are now In a
position to enlarge their field of opera
tions. In recent years they have devel
oped the art ol' relieving the congestions
hi the home market, caused by oicr
produetiou, by exports of cotton miiuu
I'aeturers. and the exports or cotton
cloths have Increased Train 1 l.miii.iinii yards
In l.sT.'i In HT,ihki.i,ihi in ISS.1. and J."hiI."S1,(hio
In 1WL'. or thirty-six times ns much In
l!iu:' as hi ls7n.
Ci to this time the great tollon mar
kets or the world have been chlelly sup
plied by manufacturers located In coun
tries which produce no cotton and which
draw their raw cotton from Hie I'iiIPmI
States. The value of the cotton gunds
Imported by those counliies having sta
tistical recti! ds amounts to nearlj i'w),
(mil. i in I annually, and of this the I'nlted
States supplies at present but about P,
Hhi.ihiO per annum, or less than ,', per cent.,
marly all or the remainder being sup
plied by countries which do not produce
cotton and which draw practically all of
their raw cotton from the I'nlted Slates.
The fact thai the Called States produces
three-fourths of the raw cotton of thu
world and has so developed the art of
r.aiuifat-tuie that Its manufacturers are
able lo fully supply the enormous home
market and to begin supplying their sur
plus to oilier parts of the world sug
gests In Mr. Austin's opinion, that such
a country should be able to make lor II
seir n permanent position among those
sui. lying the world's glowing demand
fin' manufactured cotton goods. The an
nual Inipoi tallons oT cotton goods, con
sidering the world by grand divisions,

Anieiiea, S'S.imhI.iiuIi; Africa. JI-'.imi.ikhi;

added probably J.".h,in'I.ihh Tor tho.se coun

Importers are India, with annual imports
to the value or $ltT,l ii. and China. ?7.!,-
At the present time this mnikel for
