THE MURPHY ISSUE.
"Tbe New York World" told the

Murphy is unreal would do tbat or
recommend the doing of it.
TROUBLE OVER THE FLAG.
An unpleasant incident has Just
arisen in a New Jersey town concern?
ing the -Stars and Stripes. It is the
practice ln public schools ln that state
to have every morning a salute to the
tlag, ln whlch all the scholars stand at
attention, raise their right hands ln
salute and repeat ln unison a pledge
of aUeglance. This is not, we r>elleve,
requlred by law, but may be made com
pulsory by munlclpal ordinance. It is
generally praetised and ls an interest
lng custom. capable, if properly dlreot
ed, of lneuleating patriotism and re
?spect for the flaff.
In the high school at Cedar Grove.
, however. there was one lad who de
tcllned to take part ln the ceremony.
Hls father wa* a British subject, not
naturalized here, and the boy, being a
minor. was of course also a Brlton.
Claimlng that hia lawful aUeglance was
not to the Amerlcan b?*t to the British
flag, the boy at hls Mfcefl dlrectlon
decllned to repeat the j.edge of .lle
glance to the Stars and Stripes. The
local Board of Educatlon lnslsted upon
his doiug so as a coDdition of attend?
anee at school, and on bis penclstence
ln refiual expelled him. It is now ln
timated that the matter will he further
censtdered by the board and a com
promise will be sought.
The incident was a shlning example
of the klnd of thing which should never
be permltted to occur. if it had not
already been guarded against, the tirst
intimation of trouble should have sug
gested the applicatiou of the obvlous
remedy. Tbe hoard was rlght ln re
quirlng a salute to the flag, and that
tbe boy wae wllllng to glve. The ob?
jectlon whlch.be made was to saylng,
"1 pledge aUeglance to the tlag and to
the Republic for whieb it Btands," when
he hud no legal right, even if he hud
tbe inrlinatlon, to do so; and ln that
he was right. When be reaches the nge
of twenty-one he will probably b-e-eome
naturalized, and will then give aUe?
glance to tbe Stars and Stripes, but
untll tben be obviously owee allegiance
to hls father's flag.
All the ucpleasaiitness and trouble
would bave been avolded if the Boanl
Of Edu-cmtlon bad requlred, as lu many
other placea, merely a silent military
salute to the flag, or had permltted
children of non-cltlzens to give such
salute and refraln from Jolulng tu tbe
verbal pledge of allegiance. The latter
ls probably the way ln which thls v-ase
will be settled, but it ls a plty that it
waa not thus settled hefore it went so
far. Incldents Involvlng treatment of
the national flag are always strong in
thelr appeal to sentiment and passlon,

THE REAL LEADER.
When (Jovernor Wilson's speeches

more pretcntituis and ubiquitous prln?

lntellectual impulse to the PflfliOl **lHl*
eanvass, coinlng real thought into
Rtappf eiilgnuns. wlif!<* his assoelate
has heen showing himself to the
crowds. obscured in a penmnbra of in
consistencies and platitudes.
Governnr Wilion has been Indulging
recently in hnzy talk about diseipliu
ing the trusts by "regulating competi
tion." He says that he hopes tfl see
the evlis of the trust system ellmi
nated hy eompelling people to com
pete who have lost all interest Ifl coni
petitlou. He 1- going to ranka the
labor unions _______ their cardlnai
principle of action and restore the free
shop and the free lalior markel. He. is
llflO going 10 l-diioe mauufacturers to
fight one another for the privilege of
selling, although they prefer not to
flght and flnd lt more profltable to do
business In a spirlt of unity and fra
ternlty. Mr. Wilson does not tell the
public how he is going to restore
competitlon before he beglns to regu
late it But that ls a trifling detail
to nn expert dealer ln generftlitics.
The public might as well expect hlm
to tell how he 1? golug to do away
with what he regard- as inlqultous and
oppressive protective duties without ln
the least upsettlng condltlons in Indus?
try adjusted to those protectlve duties.
Go*fil*I10_ Mnrshall is too keen ind
candid to lnvolve himself ln such ab
surciitios. He has I remedy for the
trust evil which is at least infdligible.
In Illinois the othor dny he sniri thnt
the proper way to curb the trusts was
through the tariff, taklng the duties!
off all artlcles onrupetlng wlth the
products of _,**-_-_. trusts. Here. tt
lenst, ls something deflnlto and _?_?
crete. It mlght ronflict wlth the **"_?
dltinnal Democratic pollcy o? tariff for

There would he lltlle revenue left if

not rench the trusts which deal in ar?

SKEAT AND HIS WORK.
It is perhaps symptomatlc of the llt
erary, and particularly the llngulstic
trend of the time that the death of
William W. Skeat. should havo been
recorded with little comment, and
should have been passed by as of no
more interest than the _0___fl of any
of ten thousand other college profes
sors. To what oxtent there ls among
scboiars a sense of loss it would be
lnipoB-ible to say, but there ougbt to
be a deep feellng of repret, and at the
same time ofl endurlng gratitude for
the work which the man left behlnd
hlm, on the part of all who have
regard for English speech, not in its
Mternry style, its rhetoric, Us eyntax,
Its rhythm, but in the very words
theniselves, which are the essentiaJ
elements upon whlrh all these other
qualitles nre dependent.
Skeat did one of the greatest works
for etymology of all English scholar*
of his tlme, aud there ls no greater
need of our language than that Its
etymology shall l?e studied and under

Indeed. tha hlgh importanee of ety

whleh are being made or attempted In
the spelling and pronunclation of the

to njl-pi .nunciation. particularly to the
ignoring of those flne gradatlons of
vowel sound. whlch, when rlghtly bb

THE EASTERN EMPIRE.
There is doubtless much truth in the
remark of our Loudon correspomlent
lhat the great danger of the Balkan
situation 114-s in the fact that the inter
L-sta of Austria and Russla are antag
iiiistlc and irreconcilable. For many
yeara it has boen an open secret that
Russla cwvets Constantinople She
wants. thnt ls to say, the control of
the straits whlch connect the Black
Kea wlth the Medlterranean. Such
?4introl ls obvlously of incalculnblo im
[iortance to ber. It would give her the
iutlet for wbic-b she lias been seeking
and strivli-g ever since the days of
Peter the Great, and lt would give her
that outlet, and inlet also, not merely

'or which she has so vigoronsly con
:ended would l>e inconslderabie trlflc-s
n coutrast with the ownership of the
llosponw snd Dardanelles.
But there Le remorsel.se opposition
to her schemes in thnt directlon, not
only on the part of nations whlch do
not want to see her planted at Constan?
tinople. but also on the part of one
great power which wishes itaelf to be
planted there. The very name of Aus
jtria is signiflcant?Oesterrelch. tbe
Eastern Empire. Tbe Eastern Empire
was By.antlum. It has long been the
ambltlon of the Kalser at Vienna to
make that name an hlstorical reality.
Tbat is why Austria-Hungnry has per
| mitted herself to become almost a neg
i ligihle quantlty in the dtplO-MU*. of
Western Europe and tbe reft of the
[ world and has for n full generatlon
I concentrated her attentlon and all the
resourcea of her deft, raasterful and

ii|>on the soutbeastern corner of the
continent. She is the only great jiower
that nhuts upon the Balkan States, and
she does directly abut upon Montene?
gro. Servia and Kumania as well as
upon Turkey itself.
It ls true thut Salonlca, whlch hns
long been regarded as the goal of Aus
trlflfl aiiibition, is u long way froin
Constantinople. Yet even three hun?
dred miles mlght be too little for com?
fort in some cases. We can scarcely
siippose that Russia would enjoy hav?
