'Ilio ilcnth of Senator Heck Is Ulllo
fchoit of a national calamity. Ho was
cue of tlio ftw nun left who had par
ticipated in tlio poH helium discussion?
of the j enrs succeeding tho great war
lieiiod, and by leason of that ohcum
stnncc ho wns one of those who left
3if 8 Impicss on the legislation which
lliat period rendered necessary.
Mr Beck brought to tlio discharge- of
lils duties knowledge, honesty, fidelity
nml diligence. In behalf of what ho
thought wns light his determination
was invincible and his intellectual io
.sources were completely available.
Economic subjects had received a largo
ii mount of study nt his hands, and he
wns believed to be on such (juestioiis
one of the best Informed men In Con
gicf. Accordingly, on the tariff ho
took cMreme Democratic ground. And
Jie was known as a consistent free
tinder whenever the finances of the
nation were under consideration.
He was a man of strong convictions,
Mcrling integrity and Inflexible lesolu
tion in short, the kind of man who
leaves Ills maik on a deliberative as
itinhly. He was also a man of remark
nble pcisonal magnetism, so that few
men ever came within the reach of his
acquaintance who did not acknowledge
the spell of his genial attractiveness. He
was stalwart in all respects. Ho was a
strong paitisan, an able debater and an
i vcr faithful friend. Kentucky has now
many accomplished and conscientious
public men, but it is no disparagement
to them to say thai it will not be easy to
mpply from their number the loss which
the State and the nation has sustained
in the sudden death of Mr. Deck
KENTUCKY'S NEXT SKNATOIt.
The stioke of fate which lias de
julvui Kentucky of her e.xpcilenced
Miiduble repiesentatlvu in the Senate of
the United States, Is one which pro
duces n vacancy which that State will
won be cnlled upon to fill. It so hap
pens that the Stato is at present well
vupplled with able public men. In
ears gone by Kentucky has furnished
the nation with cabinet and opicr
officers whose nnmes and. -acts "are a
part of Its hlslpry-lf has also had the
.Wjiottji gfvinc to the nation tho service
of Henry Clay, one of the great trium
viinte of statesmen who dominated tho
iv nale during a considerable period.
If the mantle of Clay did not exactly
lit the figure and proportions of James
13. Heck It was not because that states
man -was mora indifferent to the ques
tions of the time, hut because those
questions had so changed their bearing
that their status had undergone a ic
MRikable alteration through tho events
Of the war. The progress of the country's-history
made Mr, Beck a Demo
crat of the most pronounced type. In
this Tespect hu was a thorough iepre
Mutative of his Stale, which tho course
of events hail placed in the fiont rank
f the Democratic column.
The deteuninatlon of the succession
to the vacant Scnatorship is the business
of the Legislature of Kentucky. There
is no scarcity of worthy matciial from
whfch to chose. The whole Kentucky
delegation in Congicss Is one which
docs honor to the Stato, and somo of its
members, like Mr. Breckinridge and
otheis, have made themselves con
spicuous by extraoidlnary ability and
suavity of manneis.
But there will be no question in the
.Kentucky delegation still less thiough
jut the nation as to who should be
Mr. Beck's successor. Beyond question
Ihe foiemost publicist of Kentucky, per
Laps in the whole country, Is John G.
fnillsle. About this there will be little
dispute. His long and ably sustained
rimer as Speaker of the House won
Hie uniform respect of both political
parties. His ability both as a theorist and
as a practical leadei is unquestioned.
"While he is strong In conviction ho is
moderate and adroit in statement. Ho
is above any lesort to unfair or merely
partisan measures. His temper Is emi
nently judicial. AVithout doubt Mr.
Carlisle gathers to himself all the intel
lectual hopes of tho Democratic party.
In a sense in which no other man can
hope to rival him ho is tho leader of tho
paity. lie is theiefore the man to sue
cid to the vaeant Senatorship, and
Kentucky cannot more honor heisclf
than by choosing as Mr. Beck's suc
cessor John G Cm lisle.
TIIK IHKIUAIIOX l'KOltl.UJI.
A few days ago Tin: Cuitic presented
to its-readers a synopsis of tho argument
of Mr. Flower of New Yoik against
iriigatlou. It is only just to place be
fore them now tho salient points of tho
wilier side of the case.
Two years aeo tho Secretary of tho
Interior was directed by a joint resolu
tion of Congress to ascertain the practl-
ability of constructing rcseivolrs In tho
iirid regions of tlio "West. The result of
Ids report was an appropriation of
-flCO.OflO by the Fiftieth Congress for
reservoirs, ditches and canals foi iirl
At thu second soasion of tho same
ngrfS3 250,000 was appropriated for
continuing this work. Mr. Iteagan of
Texas now pioposes that thu country
shall be platted into Irrigation districts
by hydiographlc basins. Maps, arc to
hbow tho lands that can bo easily
watered, These irrigable lands are to
be acquired In tracts of eighty acres un
der homestead laws.
TJn provision of what hfts barn
known as tho desert law has operated
through tho seluro of millions of acres
of the public domain and of rivers and
streams for tho practical opulslon of
tho humble seekers of homesteads. A
new policy "seems to havobcen rendered
ntc,6ary. It is utged that henceforth
tho Government should mark thu sites
along the Valleys and gorgos of tho
streams which may bo suitable for
great lescrvotra lo bo filled by tho
spring freshets so that tho water may
afterward bocanicd to tho surroundlue
areas through nquedttcts and ditches In
the dry season.
A contrary policy would give tho
whole "Western domain, which lcmalns
to the Government as a perpetual pos
sesion, to the cattle raising monopo
lies 'which now to so great an extent
occupy tho Government lands of that
"Willi tho ilWO.OHl) thus far appropri

In California, Coloiado, Utah, Idaho,
Montana, and New Mexico This is the
situation to which Senator Ilcagan's bill
nppllcs. It looks as though it might
serve a useful purpose. The nreument
against It is that at tho public expense
it cheapens Western lands lo tho disad
vantage of Bastern farms.
On the faco of It, it bcems that If tho
"Western country can ba settled through
the whole cMcnt of tho American desert
a great gain to tlio people may bo at
tained. It is evident enough that this
can only he done by iirigation. If it
can bo so done theie is no rc.ison why
an experiment which has had no ovll
lesult either in Europe oi Asia should
fall in America.

Tho depression which Is now prevail
ing In every -branch of agricultural
interests is attraotlhg very general atten
tion. Tho venerjiblo Secretary of Agrl
culture is himsejf oncof tho'ihostlnter,
cslcd spectatois. But while Mr. Rusk
may choose to be diplomatic, ho has
been by no means dumb.
He declares that the decline of agii
cultuio is due to caielcss cultiuo in tho
ill st place, to unlawful combinations of
middlemen in the second place, mid to
inequalities In the rates of transporta
tion. The ruinous competition of the peas
ant of Europe, of tho fellah of Egypt,
and of the Indian ryot working for pau
per wages is pitted against the American
fanner. That means that the pilcos of
our agilcullural pioducts aie wholly
legulatcd by the piices at which our
products arosold when they aie exported
Sccretaiy Busk's lemedy is tho ill vcr
Mflcatlon of the farmcis' crops and the
p oductlon of a largo proportion of the
aiticles we now import. But like all
supporters of the present tariff system
he ignotes the fact that the farmer is
obi Iged to sell his pioducc for whatever
he can get, whilo ho must purchase all
the nccessailes of life at the highest
known rate in the civilied world. No
nmcloriatlon of the condition of the
farming class can be effected until It ha
awakened to tho truth of this condition.

One who goes to see Edwin Booth
enact Jlnmlet knows what to expect.
He Is charmed with the actor's beauti
ful leading. He gets his money's worth,
and Is satisfied if he docs not hear the
soliloquy, "To be or not to bo," spoken
a second time in lesponsa to encore.
When it comes to a song or dance or an
entertainment mado up of specialties an
audience seems to become hoggish, and
wants a double dose. Reasonable people
who attend concerts aie made to sutler
by tho unicasonablo people who encore
everything without discrimination. Es
pecially is this so at complimentary
affairs and amateur snaps.
The worst performer gets the loudest
call. There is more of sympathy In
the noise than compliment. A veteran
and accomplished teacher of music ie
cently arranged a conceit for her pupils
and on the tickets she announced that
no bouquets would bo received and no
encores responded to. This1 at once
lifted an expensive buiden fiom tho
fiicnds of pupils and a weight of ex
pectant sonow from the minds of those
who felt it a duty to attend the concert.
In the lowest places of amusement,
where the patter of beer glasses joins
the stamping of feet, the encore is so
common that the stage manager- does
no, wau lor n.
Ho rings his bell and sends tho per
foimcron again for another turn, no
matter how tough and undesirable the
act just witnessed may have been. John
Stetson, the blunt spoken and cccentiic
Boston manager, when running a va
riety show.was persuaded to try a ham
fat actor, who said ho had a specialty lu
which he could make a hit if be had a
chance. The perfoimev went on and
went off, and there was not a sound of
applause in iho audience. "That set
tles you,'' said tbemanagei; "get out!"
"I tell you, governor," pleided the
poor actor. "I made a hie hit." "nit
he hanged!" Bald Stetson. "There
wasn't a handl" "Of course not; of
courso not," Eald tho actor. "I par
alyzed emj they couldn't applaud."
ft It may have been. But at genteel
concerts, where icfined audiences come
to listen to the numbers set down on
tho piogramme, the encore should be
discouraged. The gieatest compliment
a singer can have is a full houso. No
amount of noise, hand-clapping, stamp
ing or whistling in a half empty hall
can compensate for tlio small show of
dollnis in the ticket ofilce. The persist
ent encoie has come to bo quito a nuis
ance: it mnkes many people tiled. It
should be discontinued.
