The (suggestion by the Executive
that a. Commission bo appointed to re
commend Improvements In Chinatown
Is a most excellent one. it gives rea
sonable ns-jurnnco of notion and dis
places criticism with honest discus
sion and guarantees calm Judgment
based on facts.
The most significant Item In thu dis
patches from th'j Tr.umvril Is iho
statement that President Ki tiger Is
making preparation to neconuncdtito
30,000 moio piisonrrs lit Pretoria. If
thu ifBiilts continue to follow tho line
maintained slnco tho opening o! the
war, the number of prisoner laden
Js likely to be u factor In tho lJoora'
undoing. Up to tho present time the
HoerB have won every point In Or
ganic. Leading off with a crushing de
feat of White's forces at Ladysmlth,
the noer generals have huccooi'ciI In
pnictlcally defeating ovcty relief col
umn Bent out by tho Iirltlsh. Mcth
licn'B "victory" was one that stopped
his progie3s mid tho result of Gen.
OatncMs's encounter with tho enemy
.shows that tho Ililtlsh have much to
learn In dealing with IJocr strategy.
Well may tho London paper say, "If
ilrltnln ever needed a victory alio
needs It now."
BOARD Ol3 IIUALIII MONliY.
Still the wranglers over tho Hoard
of Health money question liavo failed
to touch upon facts that will enable tho
public to draw definite conclusions. If
a detail ol what tho Health Bureau
naked for could bo obtained and com
pared with tho Cabinet's estlmato of
what was needed, It would doubtless bo
Bhowu that the Board's original estl
mato wns cut down by tho Cabinet, and
later reduced to sonio extent by tho
Legislature. Tho documents showing
lho Board's original estimates are said
to bo among W. O. Smith's private- pa
pers and cannot bo obtained. It Is not
likely tho Advertiser will make a dili
gent search for them, since Its whole
campaign has been, not to establish
facts, but to condemn tho ofilclals. It
Is known, however, that tho Board
asked for u garbage crematory and
failed to get It. Provision was nlso
asked for a crematory In connection
with the cemeteries. This wns not
As to the legal authority of the
Board to condemn piopcrty, tho public
knows that every board pnd bureau Is
controlled from anil by tho Executive.
lli.5 tho proposition to improve China
town by opening up passageways ap
pealed to Mr. Dole at any time during
tho past two yenrs ho could have ac
complished tho work. Tho govern
ment organs aio basing their whole
campaign on after thoughts, with the
result that they aie giving free lcln
to ciltlclsm of ceitalii otllclalsc whom
they dlsllko to glvo credit. Tho Star
has uluayn had a knife out for Dr. Day,
and tho Advcitiser Is not disposed to
allow Minister Cooper to receive cre
dit for anything, slnco It apparently
supposes that such action mlglit assist
Mr. Cooper In worthy ambitions.
Tho public Is unanimous In its sup
port of tho members of tho Board for
their prompt and vigorous action of
tho past week. Every member has
been prompted by broad minded, hon
est motives and highest regard for
tho puDilc wclfaro and the Board has
done Its work to completo public sat
isfaction, Tho attempt to cast dis
credit upon present notion, by discred
iting tho work of tho past demon
strates tho motives that prompt the
critics. Discussion to secure better ad
ministration of any department la to
be commended. Captious ciltlclsm nt
a period when assistance should ho
rendered on every hand, accomplishes
nothing for public good.
If tho Government organs will rend
over some of the Issues of tho Into Sun
day Volcano, they will find that they
aro now taking up a lino of argument
which boveral months ago they joined
in condemning. If tho Board has been
short sighted and neglectful, tho gov
ernment organs now practically charge
themselves with a right to a place In
the samo category.
Pope Declni'CH the Century.
Washington, Dec. 11. In tho Human
Catholic world tho twentieth century
begins nt midnight, December 31, 1899,
according to the text of dloceso of con
gregation of lites, bolcmnly dedicat
ing tho year 1300 as tho holy year.
This decrco was received today by tho
apostolic delegation here. Tho decreo
permits tho celebration of a midnight
mass In all tho churches of Christen
dom upon tho night of December 31st
uoxt. This la a prlvilcgo of unusual
interest. Never before in tho history
of tho church has any priest of tho
church, except tho Homnn pontiff, been
permitted to celcbrnto a mass, at mid
jileht on tho eve of tho new year.
