THE BEEF REPORT.
The roport of tli<- court of Inquiry 'nf0 ^pn
crnl Milcs's chargos about tho Army Wf snr
priacs nolxxly. Its t?>nor was wt il understood
many days ago, an.l the j.ul.liration of Its toxt
but confirms the varlous opiuious formed on
the strength of foi^oasts. lt cannot be aald to
cliaugc any oplnions. Tliose who lx?llered that
th<? War Department, and especially tho com
inlssary bnrcan, wcrc incxcusably inisinanaged
will continno to think so. and flnd in tho roport
much eviden.o to . upport thelr bellef. Thoae, 00
the other hand, who ar?- convinced that thcro
.vaa nothinK in Mip charges and that tho Sec?
retary of W:ir and the offleera of the staff
bureau* *r*tA marvcls of adminislratlve ablllty
will i^ilni to varlous flndlngs in the rvport for
their Justiflcation. and urge that tho only mls
take this court oould dlscovcr was the pur
chase "f an exeesslre amount of the canned
beef. So every body will perslst lu the vjpw he
haa taken. for the report furnishea the raw
inaterial for almost any kind of eoncluslon on
varlous phMM of the dlfference between (ien
eral Miles and the Department, indudlng some
concluaions far different from those Indicated
by the court itself.
Thls is ln mauy waya unfortunate It may
perhaps be thought impossible that an ex
tended report on such a eomplicated state of
facts should not ofTer the opportunlty for Just
such dlffen nces and discussions. But W* think
lu thls case the dlfflculty ls raiher wlth the
manner In which the subject is treated than
with the inhereut ob?taclcs. great as they are,
to oarrylng coiivietion. The rcpor goes either
too far >r in>t far euough lioth ln Its crltlclsrna
aud comiiieiiiliitions. Not tliat the court should
have brought in I ivliolesnlc verdiot on one
side or the other. It was Indeed Its duty to
dlscriniinaie, to say If it found one person
wrong at OM point and soinebody else wrong at
another. Rut when the court flnds colossal
trrora In vnrious qnaiton while rej. utlng that
everytliing In general is all right and that no?
body ..ught 10 tx- piiiii-lii! for anythlng. lt sub
Jects Itself inevltably to the charge that it haa
not the courage of its own eonflctlons. It aaya
General Eag&n made s "colossal error." for
which ihere ia no "palllatlon," ln buylng nearly
seven million pounda of canned beef. It crlt
lclses (feneral Mllea for failure to do hls duty
and promptly report defecta ln the auppllea.
Why, lt wlll be asked, if these offleers nre so
blameworthy, ls lt recommended that nothing
bc done about lt? And from rarlous quartera
the <-ry la likely to go np that the court saw It

TRE LATE8T VARIETY OF TRAITOR.
The great loynl meetlng nt Chlcapo wns rn
tlrelv rlght ln dcrlaring thnt the conduct of
such men ns Atkinson. Lnughlin nnd Starr Ib
trenaonable. It dlffers from the troason for
which Ynllandlgham wns sentencod during the
Civil Wnr onlv ln the ted that thej cannot
rench anv eonsldemble number of persons
whom their utteranco* can influence. whlle, the
Northern traltors in 18fi3 were able to reach and
Influence the mlnds of many Fnlon soldiers ln
thr servlce. nnd of great bodles of inhabltanta
b, tho revolted States. If the two cases were in
that one respoct the same. \\ would probably
become the duty of the Government to punish
now ns it punished then.
The erlticlsm that publlc notlce of theae men
onlv gives thelr idens wlder circulntlon ls mls
taken. because the widest possible circulntlon
only deepens nnd Inrensifles the popular feellng
toward men of the Vallandigbam sort. The
mistake of these persons and thelr newspnper
bnekers ls ln supposlng that the people are not
loyal. and have not a thoroughly Intelligent and
pi-ofoundlv earnest approvnl of their Govern?
ment. lt need not be said to any who have
watched the development of publlc oplnlon ln
this country that there would have been long
ngo a strong expresslon of popular approval for
those in Congress nnd elsewhere who set theni
selves ngalnst the course of tbe Government.
unless the publlc feellng had been wcllnlgh
unanitnous. It does not take a large mlnority ln
this conntry to mnke a grent uoise. and the
wlld talkers and writera are suffiolcnily nnmer
ous to get up a considerable stlr lf there were
even n small minorlty to shout approval. Tbe
performancefl of these vociferous persons have
n.et so llttle rcsi>onse. have been treated with
such contempt or reprobation, and have eauscd
so mnny of thelr former nssoolates to drnw
back wlth disgust. that they have given useful
evidence of the abouudlug loyalty of publlc
It is the speclal mistnke of ngltntors ngainst
expanslon that they mnke an appearance of
being more Ignornnt and more laeklng In ordi
nnry oommon-sense than the plain people who
Judge them. There nre many mlllions of Amer
lcnns who hnve never written books. nor
tnught ln oolleges. nor advertiserl themselves by
extrnvagnnre of speech, but who know enough
of current ov-nts to know thnt lt is n falsehood
for anybody to pretend that Agulnaldo and hls
followers represent the great body of the Phll
Ipplne Inhabltants. or that the Goverument be?
gan war a.nlnst them, or that they have been
anywhero trented wlth rruelty or hnrshness
beyond the llmlts of olvllized warfare. When a
writer or professor pretends not to know these
things the mlllions of plaln people do not be?
lleve hlm, slnce they cannot coneelve how he
should be so mueh more ignorant lhan them?
selves. It Is the flnal and fatnl mistake thnt
men keep up ranting who can suggest no prtC
tical mode of dealing with the Diilipplnes, eon
slstently with the laws of natlons, the honor of
the flag, and the dutles of tbe (iovernraent
toward those who have aceepted its authorlty
and protectlon. Men who do not dare to face
Ihe renl probleras wlth whlch the Government
has to deal show even to the plalnest mlnds
thnt they are not slncere In pretemllng to be
goverwd by a sense of right or duty.

RACIXO WELL UXDBR WAY.
lt the ofltelnls who are responslble for turf
success or failure wlll aee to It that the si>ort
Is kept up ln the manner seea at Morrls Park
lnst Saturday the friends of thoroughbred
horses wlll have cause for rejoicing. <>n tJie
0l?< dnv of the spring meetlng of the West?
ehester Raclng Assoclatlon the contests were so
well ninnaged tliat the most exaotlng of crltlcs
could flnd no fault. Few raclng occaslons wlt
nessed bv Amerlcans have ealled out so gen?
eral approval. The devotees of turf batflea as
sembled In generous nurnbers. In fact. the
attendance waa much greater than had been
nntlclpated. aud tbe interest manifested by the
spectafors and thelr gratlfleatlon over the lnot
dents of the afternoon and wlth regard to the
results of the varlous sfruggles were Impresslve
to a degree that Is rarc ln thls part of the
Morns Tark. however. has alwaya been un
fortunate ln railroad arrangements, and rhe
throngs at the track dld not reach thelr homea
untll a late hour. Were the plans for carrylng
people to and from the course anythlng llke
what they ought to be the chorus of praise on
the flrst day would have been free from any
Jarrlng note. It may be that when the brldge
now bulldlng from Second ave. to Wlllls ave.
ls completed some Improvement may 1*> made
in transnorting miiltitudos to and from the
Westehester grounds, but the corporatlons
?whlch now control the avenues of approach to
Morrls Park exhibit a eallous indlfference to
publlc comfort nnd convenience. They eonduct
thelr business as If they looked upon thelr pas?
sengers wlth contempt.
It ls a grlevous Injury to Morrls Park that
the transportation Hnes act ns if they were de
iiroOi of o.iuslng all the dolay nnd dlfflculty to
Ihelr patrons which It is In thelr power to
cause. These companies are deaf to appeals.
complainis and protests. and do not seem to be
affected ln the lenst by the intensely bltter
fceling which they have stlrrod up among those
wh<> are compelled to make nse of thelr cars.
This meetlng at Morrls Park. however. ls
sure of llberal publlc favor. In splte of thr an
noynneos which the transportation companies
lnfllct upon their unhappy patrons, provlded tho
management will furnlsh to the votarles of
sound and honorable sport the sort of enter
talnment whlch was seen on Saturday. The
contrast between the raclng at Aqueduct
throughout the recent meetlnc on tho Queens
County track and the sport which was enjoyod
at Westehester was startllng. Presldent Rellly
of the Queens County Jockey Club ls anxlous
to have elean and decent contests on hls track.
I'nfortunately, the stewards at the Aqueduct
meetlng were so apathetlc nnd inefflcient that
sonnd.ils were frequent. and there Is reason to
bolieve that several of the races were flagrant
Jobs. Stewards who are so neglectful of thelr
duty as to take no actlon when strong ground
for susplelon exlsts ought not to hold any turf
position. rnserupulotis bookmakers. tralners
and Jockeys nnd all tlie disreputable persons
who do so much to degrade the sport spoke of
the stewards nt Aqueduct with Jests and Jeers.
Racing offlclals should have snfflelent dlgnlty
and snfflelent energy to make their authorlty
felt and to Inspire respeet among the men and
boys who are Inclined to play trieks and to
carry out evll sohomes. When stewards are so
careless or dull or stupld that they fall to see
whnt Is plain to ovorybody elsc, nnd fnil to take
nctlon when actlon is needed, they are unfit for
stewnrdshlp. The turf ln the East has been
aftlleted too often and too gravely with Incom
petent aml Inefflcient stewardshlp. If the asso
clatlons enn provide hereafter dlverslon as
agreeable as that of Saturday tlie turf wlll
prnsper; but if careless and slugglsh stewards
nl any track allow such dlseredltnble lncidenis
as were frequent at Aqueduct to pass unpun

DEBOBALIETBQ A (ITY.
The truth of the Apostolic saylng thnt evll
coniiuuiiications corrnpt food uianners waa
never more striklngly shown than ln the case
of the use of soft coal In this city, and e*|_>
cially In the Borough of Rrooklyn. At tlie lie
glnnlng tlie law wns broken surroptlrlmisly. or
under cover of denl.iL and ihat by concerns
wlileh in other matters had long shown them
selves to be ready to evade the raqatfMMPtl
of tlie stfltuto. and to Ififrlnge upon the rlghts
of tlie pul.llc whenever they could do so wllh
a fair promlse of lmpunity and wiih a pcospsct
of thereby galnlng a few extra dollara. Hut as
time went on, and these were permltted to pur
IM thelr detegtable course unpunished and un

began to follow thelr example. nnd to do so
more and more openly, untll now men and cor?
poratlons of the highest ?tandlng are vlolnting
the law without the silKhtest pretence at eon
cealment or excuse.
There Is. ns v.e have frequently taken occa?

The fact |?, pendstent neglect or refuaal of
tbe offleera of tbe law to enforce the law la
havlng Its natural result. Tt Ib brlnging the

the whole clty. Beyond questlon, the people of
Hrooklyn. wlthout exccptlon worthy of note,
nre in favor of preserrlng the atmoBphere of

ln favor of enforclng the law agnlnst Its pollu

and the fnilure of the health offlcers to enforce
It. nnd the pollutlon of the alr already efferted
and Btefldllj Incrensing. nre demorallzlng their
mlnds and eonsclences. Seelng some break tlie

Brooklyn should by and by petitlon for a re

enactment of one maklng the use of such fuel

When M.ircon! sent mrssages aeross the Eng?

recorded was only one of degree. not of kind.
In MM sense the experlmentft conducted on
iK.ard tlie French warshlp Ibls a few days ago
are more Instructlve. On this occasion the
young Itallan dispatched one mrssage that wns
'recelved slmultaneously nt two polnts, South

dlntolv therenfter he applied some additional
nppnr'atus to his transmltter, and was thereby
ennbled to conflne hls correspondenee to a

Kj of Insiirlng secreey.
None of the published accounts Indlcate the
preclse ehnrnctrr of the drvlce employed to
eon?"ntrate the actlon of the transmltter. But
lt sremB pronnbli-, from the phrnsi'ology of
some of the referencea of the F.ngllsh press to
the matter, that the nttachment resembleil, in
prlnclple, the pnrabollc mlrror which focusses

expedtent, whleh fumlshes a close parallel be?

the use of the hellogmph in nrmy slgualllng, is
entirely dlstinct from the "tunlng" process,

if either of the statlons were moving. and if
fog or battle smoke were to veil one from the

The theme of "Romeo and Jullet" Is Idola'roua
love predestlned to ruln and mlsery. and th'-refora
the play Is saturated wlth passlon and .te. ped la

nlav ls over-brooded wlth a strange, vague _r.er.aca
of dcadly danger. Both the lovers are consriou*
of thls presentlment; both are aware of ?\?oma

without tho beauty that r ubdues. the gl.imo.r that

being in love rather than any woman who haa
touched hls heart. In Jullet there ls no s ubtlety:
love changea her, at once, from glrl to woman, and
mnkes her strong and glorlous In her power of
self-devotlon and eacrlflee. Mercutio also. whlla
