U Brlgham City is to make a very plcas

to release war newa freely just as soon
as It ha somelhing that it thinks1 good
enough to print.
Mr. Condle wishes the public to un
derstand that It Is not his fault that
thero is much dirt on the pavements, as
he did not take it there.
1 Ogden Is to have a bull fight on
Washington's birthday, which will be
quite appropriate, as George himself,
you remember, once fought a Bull, the
celebrated John Bull.
Though the Mayor, so far as we
know, does not pretend to be a doctor,
j he thinks he can diagnose the Health
; Board trouble better than Its physicians
But those who feel that Congressman
Shafroth violated one of the principles
of the Democratic party in resigning his
-?at, should bear in mind that he knew
he couldn't hold it, anyway.
But Mayor Morris, not wishing to be
too rough with the Bepublican em
ployees, considerately Intimates that
they may work on a while longer if they
are willing to do so without pay.
The death of Mr. Bruback was pitiful
in the extreme. He was victim to the
quality of his mind which required that
he verify for himself what he had gone
to investigate. How the distressing ac
cident happened will never be positively
known, but that It caused Mils death is
tho affliction. Mr. Bruback was for
twenty years prominent as a mining
man and expert, active, Intelligent, ex
act. His loss will be deeply felt in the
Tho dispatches say that Buesla will
have an army of four hundred thousand
men in Manchuria in twelve days. It
won't have as many In twelve months,
if ever. We doubt If It has one hundred
thousand there now, or that Japan has
that many. We look to see the prcliml
nary land battles fought with, not more
than fifty thousand men on each side.
And It will be no small effort to maln
tain and thoroughly equip, that number,
with the difficulties that are to be en
countered. Wo note a tone of sarcasm In some
of the papers of tho country on the
presentation of the name of Mr. Wall
of Wisconsin as a Democratic Presl
dcntlal candidate. It is probable, to
be sure, that Mr. Wall Is not seriously
a candidate; but If he were, his candl
daey would compel respect, not only
because his forco and ability would
compel It, but because he Is worthy of
that respect. He is of a caliber far
greater than Bryan, for Instance, and
much above that of a number of worthy
Hj gentlemen who have occupied tho White
fl Germany has secured the right, it
seems, to inaugurate a uniform police
system in all tho cities of Shan Tung
province. That is rather more than
permitting the camel to get his head Ih
Hj side" the tent: It !o alluring him to get
H' in with all his feet A German police
system in tho cities there means Ger
man control, absolutely, Inevitable.
Shan Tung Is the province In which tho
Germans made their aggressive splzure
of ICIau Chau; It Is densely populated,
the most densely of all the provinces of
China, C53 people to tho square mile;
area, 33,500 square miles, total popula
tlon, 26,217.835. It Is a sacred' province,
within its borders the revered Confucius
was born, and thousands of Chinamen
go there on pilgrimages. The report
says that the people of the cities who
aro to get the German police system
want It. If so, they ought to have it,
and of course will get It, for Germany
Is more than willing, and China can't
hinder. But the true meaning of the
move Is that the province will be a Ger
man possession, and that the process of
the partition of China has made an
other important advance.
THE BURIAL OF THE GREAT SENATOR.
Tho burial services over the body of.
Senator Hanna In Cleveland yenterday
were representative of the sorrow In
every American heart at the death of the
illustrious man. There, among the
friends who had known him from his
youth, was the right' placo to take his
measurement and to define his high
character und: services to his fcllow-cltl-zens
andi to the public.
That measurement was made, that
definition took form. Tho result was
tho exaltation of his memory to the
highest pinnacle in the hearts of all Just
and patriotic hearts, and the humiliation
of every one of those who have so abu
sively, maliciously, and Indecently as
The tribute pronounced' upon the Il
lustrious dead by Bishop Leonard' of the
Cleveland diocese, was both eloquent
and veritably fit as to the character,
works, purposes, and laudable embltlons
of the man. It was a beautiful and true
summary of what the best men of the
Nation have been saying since Senator
Tho hand of Mr. Hanna has been felt
in every important political event since
he came to tho front In the arena of
public affairs. It had been felt years
before In the important economic and
business of the country.
In labor circles the mourning Is that
for a true champion and friend. The
Hon. Carroll D. Wright, United States
Commissioner of Labor, says that Hanna
was one of the two greatest friends
t.hat labor has ever known. John Mitch
ell, Samuel Gompers, and the other
labor leaders, mourn his loss as that of
a great ally.
President Charles F. Thwlng of the
Western Reserve University says that
Senator Hanna was not a scholar, but
he was a thinker; he embodied tho fine
qualities of tho gentleman. "But above
all, he Tas a great public servant. As
an employer of labor he wished- to be
just to the laborer. As one who stood,
In a sense, for capital, he wished to be
fair to capital. He knew well that no
endeavor in the solution of the present
industrial crisis could be of permanent
value unless It proved to be of benefit to
both capital and' labor. He was Repub
lican in politics, but ho desired to use
his partisan relationship for the benefit
That, we take it, is a fair and just
estimate of the man. And these and
other similar expressions are the univer
sal sentiment of the country In the pres
ence of Its illustrious dead.
In that presence, the bitter and Igno
ble voice of calumny Is stilled; groveling
malice shrinks back abashed; the rail
ing tongue Is paralyzed. The man was
greater than all his foes, more mighty
than those who would pull him down.
Ills exaltation Is great, and by the
universal acceptance of mankind. None
now questions It, none seeks to deny his
title to greatness. If his life and' worth
shall have the effect to make more cau
tious those who are prone to assail with
out cause and revile without restraint,
then another lesson will have been
drawn from his life and work that will
be of service to the republic".
The general lesson of his life Is that
the citizen should be devoted to his
country, and that every act and thought
should be for the public good and" for the
upbuilding of humanity, the relief of dis
tress, and the harmony of the relations
Great In his economic and public ser
vices, remarkable- in his faithfulness to
principle and to his friends, he was a
shining character, beloved by all, the
strong fortress of those who championed
the right. God rest his noble soul.
Russia declines to receive U. S. Con
sul Morgan, appointed for Dalny. But
Dalny Is not in Russia, but In Man
churia, over which Russia has repeat
edly disclaimed sovereignty and af
firmed It for China. It Is difficult to
see, therefore, on what ground Russia
objects. Consul Morgan is not accred
ited to Russia, and that power might
well keep its nose out of the affair
altogether. It Is Impossible to consider
Manchuria as both Chinese and Rus
sian, and as Russia dare not claim the
country, she has really nothing to do
but subside. Anyway, it seems likely
that Russia will be out of Dalny alto
gether by the time Mr. Morgan can

retary Hay's note; In fact, she gets

powers, Including China, If It Is worth

connection, or In any connection which

REPUBLICAN C0UNCILMEN, BE TRUE!
The Republican members of the City
Council owe It to themselves, as well as
to their constituents, to stand firm In
the contest which Mayor Morris and his
aggressive partisan Democratic advisers
have forced upon them. They owe It to
their party to stop the raid which the
"heelers" have begun to capture the mu
It Is well known that the Democrats
have no reason for their clamor to get
In, and to ousj. Republican? and good
officials to give them place. The people
chose nine of the fifteen members of the
Council from the Republican nominees.
These successful candidates were as bit
terly fought by the hungry gang which
Is now clamoring for office as were the
defeated candidates. If this crowd
which is now demanding concessions
from the Republican Councllmen could
have had their way, the Republican can
didates In the wards would all have been
It comes with an 111 grace, therefore,
for these clamorous ones to now ap
proach these Republican Councllmen
with the demand for their consent that
Mayor Morris shall pack the offices with
men who supported) him, regardless of
the public Interests, and to the weaken

can Councllmen, should they yield to the

Is that they shall have the unrestricted

to them by the law; and this right must
The character of some" of the Mayor's
would-be appointments Is such, too, as
to destroy all respect for his judgment
of men. We suppose that In a great city
It Is inevitable that there shall be clam
orous, vile, and noisy perrons for whom
It Is Impossible t6 have any sort of re
spect; for whom no reputable citizen
could possibly entertain anything but
unspeakable contempt. It is bad enough
to have such persons among us; but to
pick them up and attempt to put them
Into public office Is scandalous.
Wo notice that the Democratic organ
and Its evening ally in this attempt to
bulldoze the Council Into yielding to the
Mayor the control of the appointive of
fices, are trying to scare tho members
with threats of what Mayor Morris will
do that the payroll will be held up;
that ho will make vacancies In all the
appointive offices, and then fill them,
and all that sort of rot.
But he cannot make vacancies; the In
cumbents will hold until their successors
are confirmed by the Council, as the law
requires. If the Mayor's appointees
think they can get Into office In defiance
of the Council, let them try It in the
courts. That matter has been pretty
thoroughly thrashed out at different
times, and the chance of such bob-tailed
appointments succeeding is not In the
By the way. how does It happen that
one great backer of Morris In his per
sonal, selfish, and partisan raid on the
offices, is the same which last year was
so tearfully pathetic in support of the
rights of the Council against the Mayor?
That maintained the right of the Coun
cil to have and exercise the restraining
hand, as the direct reprpsentatlves of
the people? This, too, while all the
while sustaining the present system of
municipal government as the right and
proper one, which should not be
To allow the Mayor to carry through
his contemplated partisan office-packing
would be a disgrace to the city. It is in
cumbent upon the Republican Council
men to save the city from the reproach
which Mayor Morris would bring upon
It, and to stand firm on their rights,
privileges, and duties, which are clearly
defined In the law.
A COURSE TO BE AVOIDED.
Our correspondent from Park City
yesterday morning mentioned a war
which the labor unions there are mak
ing upon three men, one of whom, Har
vey Hardy, Is mentioned as having
"Just returned from the coal fields,
where he served ns a member of the
National Guard." The other two' named
are alleged to have fought against the
unions; but as to Hardy, thero Is no
such statement, only that he did ser
vice as a member of the Guard at the
coal fields. We trust that If there Is
any purpose jn the minds of any mem
bers of the unions to attack Mr. Hardy
for that reason, the wiser men and
cooler heads In the organization will
shut off that Intolerance.
Wherever this spirit of persecution by
labor union sentiment has shown itself,
It hasbrought odium upon the union,
such conduct is against public policy., Is
treasonable In essence, and Is Justly con
demned by every right-thinking mind.
It Id to be hoped that the unions of
Park City will steer clear of any such
exhibition of spleen against the laws,
and hostility to organized government.
For It is the anarchistic view, and
wholly reprehensible from the stand
point of civilization and popular rule.
The statement of Col. John I. Mar
tin, who Is to be tho sergeant-at-arms
of the National Democratic convention
at SL Louie, that there will be room
enough for all the Democrats who may
come there may be a warning to tho
Republicans to stay away, or a confi
dence game on the Democrats, which
ever way you look at It. And anyway
It Is rather an ungracious way to put it.
GALLANTRY OF IDAHO MAN.
From tho Now York World.
Of course It Is the youngest member
of the Houea at Washington who has
prepared a bill designed to permit tho
womon of the land to vote for Repre
sentatives in Congress. Mr. French of
Idaho Is entitled to recognition as pos
sessing the courage of his .gallantry.
It may be that he will push his meas
ure with the enthusiasm of his years.
His own State, It will be remembered,
Is of that progressive quartette of
Western commonwealths In which the
full suffrage Is accorded to citizens
male or female.
However, we may safely expect that
the House will be kind to Mr. French
without being Indulgent. The 3S6 mem
bers of that body may not be strictly
representative of the broad Nation.
They are sufficiently so, however, to re
spond to the popular conviction that
women in the majority do not want to
vote, and that it Is therefore both safe
and expedient not to thrust the suf
frage upon them. There Is an older
chivalry which believes In the higher
right of women not to vote.
