To-morrow In almost nil tho Rrcnt
cities of Ihtropo nml America It Is ex
pected that workingmen will mako
public dunionstratlons against tlic con
ditions umlcr which thoy aio now rc
fjulrctl to labor. Reyontl expressing gun
ernhiurust there seems to bo no dellnlte
itlcn as to what the demonstrations will
signify. I'xcept tho agitation for the
eight-hour per tiny arrangement, there
is no formulated grievance on the part
of labor of which the geneial public
Yet It Is anticipated that the display
of tho numerical stiength of working
men to bo given to-morrow will be the
most Impressive thing over shown In
the history of Industry. The govern
ments of Europo have, for tho most
part, issued proclamations forbidding
assemblages and processions. If tho
worklngmcn remain cool and maintain
nider these proclamations will boa (load
letter. If they should forget themselves
and their own best Interests so far as to
commit some deed of violence, thohcavy
hand of repression will at once take ad
vantage of the mlstako and feel justi
fied In exercising overwhelming force.
In this country probably the demon
stration which will bear the closest
watching will be that at Chicago. In
their attempts to ncgotiato with tho
bosses, tho labor men of tho "Western
metropolis have had no success and
have stincd up considerable friction.
Tho men are not now as near to the
position of their employers as when
they lirht began to talk to them. This
is a fact which docs not augur well f r
an easy or speedy settlement.
Still, Aniciican woikingnien are
above all things distinguished for com
mon sense. They w 111 contend strenu
ously for their rights, but they cm
nadily perceive when tho limit of van
tage giound has been reached. A gen
eral strike of tho trades would greatly
embarrass progress and no doubt involve
the temporary discomfiture of some of
the ilch people; but its gieat, abiding
and appalling effect would bo upon
woikingmcn and their dependents.

thrown out of gear It is not easy to re
Btoie them to their accustomed revolu

The friends of tho bill for the estab
lishment of the Hock Creek Park enter
tain thohope that, on a reconsideration,
the fi lends of the measuio will rally in
suflleicnt foico to carry It triumphantly.
The adverse vote which surprised every
body was obtained in a very light
House, not more than half the members
being present. It is thought that in a
full House the result will bo very dif
ferent. Ir. Atkinson, who was one of the
members in chance of the bill, had little
doubt that it would be passed next Dis
trict day. One of the difficulties, he
said, in the minds of Representatives
was the unit of value to which they are
accustomed at theirhomes. An Indiana
member who had viewed the park site
said: "I could get much more valuable
ground than this broken and hilly conn
tiy in Indiana for $50 an acre, and I
don't understand why this compara
tively worthless land should be so
cofitly." The great trouble Is to get
members to obtain a knowledge of real
estate values in tho neighborhood.
"When that shall have been done the
majority of the Iiouso will pass tho
Rock Creek Park bill, because they will
understand that the giound will bo
much dearer next year than this.
The only advantage which can come
out of the delay Is tho possibility of a
dirri ate of cost in tho purchase of the
territory desired for park purposes.
The largely increased assessment of ad
joining real estate will have tho effect
of fearing the owners out of their free
holds and of leading them to reall.o
at reasonable rates. It is very certain
that the purchase should bo made at
the earliest possible 'date. There aro
no conflicting opinions as to tho desira
bility of the Rock Creek valley for
paik purposes. The property Is avail
able and can bo acquired. Nothing
will hinder Its duo acquisition but in
illfferenco or lack of Intelligence. It
is to bo hoped that neither of these
will unduly prevail.
TII15 SEXT 1'ICISON UDXaulHS,
It will generally be regarded as a sin
gular ciicumstanco that the next Euro
pean Prison Congress Is to bo held at
St. Petersburg. What renders the cir
cumstance additionally strange Is that
at tho piescnt time general attention Is
being directed to tho Russian penal sys
tem. Georgo Kennan, both In his lec
tures and articles has described the
prisons of Siberia with so much vivid
ness that ignorance of their character is
well nigh Impossible. Kcnnan's ac
counts may bo gicatly exaggerated, and
they probably are, but they could not be
wholly false, and their extravagant pro
poitlons must have a ground-work of
Now, tho Prison Congress Is com
posed of philanthropists. To them tho
privations and restraints which seem a
necessary part of any cfllclcnt penal sys
tem aro useless and Inexcusable cruel
tics. It will bo curious to noto what
they will think and say when thoy ex
amine the prison methods of the Czar.
It ought, however, to bo borne in.
mir.d that the Ru-slan government pro

of putting culprits to death for treason
nnd other capital crimes, It places them
tinder a sentence of banishment, and,
whllo Siberia has Its hardship', life

lug clicumstances, be healthful and
AVhoio prisoners aro deprived of

conditions or closo confinement that

found to bo duo to somo conspiracy or
an attempt at revolt. In this connec
tion it Is worth lecnlllngthat tho prison
philanthropist, John Howard, lost his
life In trying to alleviate tho horrors of
n Russian prison and that tho ltmstuii
Government has ever slnco held his
name in honored rcmcmbraucc.
At all events the meeting of the
Prison Congress at the Russian capital
will be a most Interesting ovcut. What
precise eireet Its deliberations may have
on the mind or tho Czar cannot bo fore
seen, but, In tho nature of things, It
cannot bo otherwise than beneficial.
MIOI'I.ll Hi: AMERICANS.
The peculiar political contest which
thiealens to develop in Wisconsin gives
opportunity for emphasizing the doc
tilue that no matter where American
citizens may have been born, or what
country they may claim as their father
land, their duly hero Is to bo Americans
and Americans only. '
There is not the slightest objection to
citizens of foreign blith indulging in
lealnlscenres of the history nnd tradi
tions of their native land. Tho English
man in his mindful mood maybe allowed
to revel In thehistory of his country from
tho granting of tho gi eat charter down
to the American Revolution. Tho
Scotchman may continue to rovereJSt.
Audicw andRobeit Bums. Tho Irish
men, to his heart's content, may swear
by St. Patrick and Robert Emmclt.
The German may yield his allegiance
to KingGambrlnus and Bismarck, and
so with the olhcis.
But in thopiescncoof an'Amoiicauin
tcrcst all these nntlvlst l (.'collection? and
sentiments must give way to a para
mount senso of duty. In regard to any
American institution, considered as
tiich, tho man whosys"I am German,
or English, or Irish" Is unfit for citizen
ship in its best sense.
In Wisconsin thoy have a law which
' Is known as tho Bennett law. Its pur
pose is to piovido that the Encllsh
language shall bo taught in all tho
schools of the State. Tho school svs-
t.m in that State is compulsory, but at
tendance at a private or parochial school
whcie the curriculum mainly conforms
to that of the public school system has
been held to piactically fulfill tho re
quirements of the act In respect to at
tendance. But the Bennett law lequires that In
any school that can bo recognized by
the State authorities coitain instruction
shall be glvcu in the English language.
Theie are in Wisconsin wholo town
ships where no English is spoken and
where no English is taught. An at
tempt to enforce the Bennett act aroused
the wrath of tho whole Gorman, and
especially the Scandinavian, popula
tion. At the recent municipal election
in Milwaukee the Democrats took ad
vantage of tho excited state of the pub
He mind, and the movement so begun
threatens to overrun the wholo State.
In taking this course the Democrats,
as we think, acted most unwisely. The
position they have taken is in overy
way indefensible. The Republican
party is prcpaied to stand by the law,
and will Insist on Americanizing the
schools and on securing in tho institu
tions recognized by the State tho neces
sary amount of instruction in the Eng
lish language. In this it will bo eventu
ally sustained. Indeed, it is a question
whether It will not be Immediately sus
tained, for alicady there is on foot a
citizens' movement carried on by Demo
ciats who cannot join in tho crusado
against American ideas and the common
schools. Tho Bennett law may require
gieat diseietion and wisdom in its exe
cution, but to oppose it for a temporary
advantage looks like political short
sightedness, and it may provo to be a
Is ir A:to-ruKii illustration of tho fact
that llteratuie does not pay? Judge
Albion AW Tourgec, ex-carpet-bagger
and ex-mii-slonary on " A Pool's
Errand," ha been hitherto supposed
to have stmck It rich with his books,
magazines and syndicate work. Ho has
jlist been allowed $!!0 a month pension
and $2,000 back pay. Thus one by one
do our fondest Illusions vanish.
Chant Cot xiv Is perhaps tho most
notorious county in Kansas. A recent
election In Ulysses, tho county seat, was
conducted by covering the polls with the
"Winchesters of a party ambushed in a
building whoso windows commanded
tho situation. Tho county has natural
advantages, and It will doubtless be
come clvlli.cd in time, but at present it
is unmistakably Republican.
Mn. EnwAiiu Atkinson doubts
whether there Is any geueral distress
among farmers. Yet Secretary Rusk
declares that tho existence of sevcro
agrlcultuial doprislnn Is universally
admitted. The ono thing that wo havo

that they do not pay sulllclent atteutiou

howovcr, asked for an investigation.
A competent authority was designated
to examine Mm in molody, harmony,

tation and execution. Tho tuba player
stood tho test gloriously. Even tho
musical critic of the Post could not
have answered more satisfactorily.
Then tho musician took up his instru

tho tuba, mind you with such beguil

Ills Version of the Amur,
t'wni the Mal and Exprtu, April 23.
Colonel Cockcrlll could not stand tho
combined pleading of tho fat ox-President,
Dan Lamont, and William C.
Whitney and their barrel, so a promlso
was given thnt Mr. Cleveland would h9
set right before the public If tho World
could do It.
.The editor thereupon sent for Mr.
Crrwford nnd snld to him that ho must
deny thnt Grover Clevelnnd had made
any such statements as wero attributed
to him In tho Interview. Mr. Cockcrlll
told tho reporter that tho ex-Presldcnt
had been lo the ofilco and explained that
tho nbuse thnt ho heaped on Mr. Dana's
bend was not intended for publication.
"Why, I didn't wrilo half of what
Cleveland snld," Crawford replied; "If
I hnd written tho string of profanity
that the fat man said it would rnlso tho
roof off the City Hnll."
Cockcrlll insisted that Crawfoid re
tract, but the reporter sternly declined.
An arrangement, howovcr, was agreed
upon subsequently, -whereby tho Now
Yoik World would print a repudiation,
with tho express understanding that Mr.
Ciawford would be taken caro of.
This appeared in tlio Now York
World on Sunday, April 20. On Mon
day Fred. Crawford tendered his resig
nation, which was not accepted, as
Colonel Cockcrlll impressed upon htm
the fact thnt it was "policy" to pursue
mo courEO tuey nau none.
Crawford Is recognized In the profes
sion as a most painstaking and careful
man and incapable of misrepresentation.
When Colonel Cockcrlll first asked him
to deny tho interview ho declined, and
Instead furnished him with an affidavit,
in which he swears to tho truth of tlie
Interview, and adds that he did not tell
all he heard.
Mr. Crawford has been placed In a
falso light by tho paper for which ho
woiks, and ho has deemed it wise to
make a statement. This statement will
soon nppenr, and will explain his ver
sion ot the Cleveland-Dana Cockerlll
Interview and Its disgraceful repudia
