1 results at this short session of
M -J congress should not rise too
hlph. The regular apprnprlu
tlon bills will occupy every minute at
the time which the session will have nt
its disposal, and If any broad proposi
tion of general legislation frets a heav
ing, it. will. bo by special grace ot the
ruling' powers and with scant probabil
ity of ilnal action.
No doubt there will bo a raft of prop
ositions for arbitration, suggested by
the coal strike. They will get on tho
calendar and place their authors'
names in print brlelly and that will bo
the last ot them. Then, too, we may
expect a deluge ot bills to regulate
trusts. 15ut that is a matter of delicacy
sulllelent to require separate and ample
consideration. It can never get due
attention in a crowded short session.
I Whatever the administration may urge
will bti simply in the nature of a
starter. The problem in its entirety
must go over to another congress.
The minority may be expected to ring
1 the vocal changes on tariff revision for
effect In 11101. That is evidently to be
(heir rallying Issue, the subsidence of
1 Populism and tho failure of anti-imperialism
and army abuse leaving nothing
'Ise. 15ut the talking will be all on one
' plile. The determination of the Re
publican leaders to attempt no disturb
ance of existing tariff conditions at this
'.Ime Is manifestly wise. Let well
iiiough alone is clearly the dictate of
irudeneo when well enough happens to

prosperity ever vouchsafed by an all

idea of the vastness of tho' Canadian

If asked to name the fourth busiest
port In the world, who would think of

that would be correct. Chicago follows
London, New York and Hamburg in
the order of Importance and is, in fact,
really not far behind the foremost, re
quiting to gain only a little more than
one-seventh In her total tonnnge to
equal the tonnfrgc of London. New

A New Kind of Union.
A UNION of employes and em
ployers together is proposed
by C. "VV. Post, the Uattle
Creek philanthropist, and baa
been started hi Washington. Its princi
ples and purposes are thus defined:
First The widespread distribution of
reliable market reports, at least weekly,
of the labor market In the various cen
ters of America, .open alike to the In
spection of employer and employe.
Second All contracts between employ
er anil employe shull evidence! an agree
ment for tho piuehaso of labor and of a.
standard quality for a definite period
of time, six months or a year, perhaps
the periods of payment to be stated.
Third A deposit with tho treasurer of.
tho local union, -or with a designated
trustee, of twenty-llvo dollars or a satis
factory bond by the employer for each
employe, and a deposit .by tlie employe
of two cents on tho dollar every pay day
until tho total amount of the employe's
deposit Is twenty-llvo dollars or a satis
factory bond placed in the hands of the
s.-inio treasurer or trustee. These depos
its to stand for the guarantee of tho
faithful performance of the contract.
Fourth The employo .fihall have tho
light to discontinue work at nny time on
two days' notice if ho is dlssatislied with
his treatment or should become sick or
la any way incapacitated, or for any
reason whatsoever, with onu exception:
he shall not discontinue work for the
purposo of obtaining a higher rate of
wages during tho life of tho contract
and shall not Interfere in any way with
any other employe.
Fifth The. employer shall have the
light, to dismiss the employe if the qual
ity of the labor is not such as contract
ed for, or if tho employo becomes impu
dent, unmanageable, or for any reason'
whatsoever except one: he kluill not dis
charge the employo lor the purpose of
tilling his place at a lower rale of wage
during the life of tho contract, nor shall
he Interfere In any way with tho employe
securing work elsewhere.
Sixth Xo restrictions shall be placed
upon cither party regarding the pur
chase of supplies..
Seventh Neither employer nor employe
shall he a member of any federation,
trust, union or agreement which, by
combination or otherwise, seek to force
wages up or down.
Klghth Threo mouths after employe
ceases working both employer and employe-
shall be paid tho full amount of
the deposit fund, provided tho terms of
agreement have been kept. In case of
failure to keep such agreement the party
breaking same shall forfeit to tho other.
In the councils of tile union It is pro
posed that each employer shall have
one vole for qvcry employe member of
the union, thus Insuring full attendanco
iind a balance of power. This featuro
will never be acceptable tn men who
foment labor organizations for tho pur
pose of acquiring olllce and power. Hut
the Idea of closer fellowship between
employers and employed, uricl especially
the recognition ot the fact, so frequent
ly overlooked, that lhe.fr mutual Inter
ests exceed in Importance those Inter
ests of each which are hostile, as cm
bodied in ihe Post project, certainly'
are timely and 'worthy of encourage
ment. President Kruger has asked .permis
sion to return to South Africa. ils pat
riotism does not seem to ' be fervent
enough to bring happiness when sep
arated from his gold bars. .
IT IS OVICIt a hundred years
since tho republic of Ilaytl was

IN TIIKSK days ot unjustillable criti

refreshing to turn to our new possessions
and see what a grand work in education
Is being successfully carried on by Amer
ican educators, who are, themselves,
products or the American public school.
Kor Instance, let uS seo what has been
done and is being, done, in the American
public schools of Porto Rico: This work

by Dr. Martin ii. Uriimbaugh, and Is
now under the successful care of Profes
sor Samuel M. Lindsay, of the Univer
sity of Pennsylvania.
Professor Lindsay's report for tho

published by the National Uureau of
ICducatlon, gives us the de-ired Informa
tion very fully. The following is brlelly
extracted: Klght hundred and flfty
suven common grade schools were opened
during the year, exclusive id' kinder
gartens, night schools, and schools, nor

the eolith grade. The Increase In schools

Tho enrollment and attendance- show
up well. In March, 1!'2. -12,187 pupils
were on tho rolls, .mil the average at

and American education. For some part
