Hj1 l i und many are the rchemes to improve
j l,j them- to say nothing of Representative
, j 1 'I Brownlow's "good roads" bill in the
U ""i ,1 lower house of Congress. In Southern

fl 1 j The fl'st experiment In this line, near
j j 1 j ' Paris, showed that during a period of
l , ( twelve months the dust and the mud
Hij J' ,!'' wholly disappeared, and the cost of
H1 1 j j'j' ' maintaining th2 roads was materially
H -.( i ' i;J reduced. In another province, a section
H ' 4i'.V' t of road was coated with tar in 1902,
'1 . j ' w,th entire success, the road being now
H" j ! -j : covered with an elastic coating which
H' j ,1(1)" muffles the sound of traffic, and re-

NEW JERSEY DEMOCRATS.
A morning contemporary copies with
editorial glee an epistode In a Republi
can convention in Kentucky in which
a colored delegate objected to having
his- vote counted against the way he
wanted to vote. The Joke was no doubt
sharpened by the use of the negro as a
stalklng-horre for the story, the Idea
that a negro should be a delegate in a
convention being to the Democratic
mind the height of absurdity.
Of course, reprehensible methods In
conventions are to bo denounced when
over and wherever they occur. But
that they do occur in the East and the
South is beyond any question. It io not
everywhere In the country that the peo
ple are left as we have it In this most
happy Slate, entirely uncontrolled in
their political affaire, free to act, vote,
and caucus without the least shadow
of any extraneous influence hanging
over them where every citizen io a
law unto himself, and the person or the
power that would presume to intrude
between him (or her) and the ballot box
would be promptly exposed, de
nounced and taught such a lesson that
no person or power would dare to re
peat the Insolent attempt.
But let us consider for a moment the
unhappy case of New Jersey. We had
by wire not long ago an account of the
Democratic conventions there, to elect
titnirntou 4ha Vntlnnnl Tlnmnnr-itln
convention. It was said that the Hearst
delegates withdrew, held a convention
of their own, and will make a fight
for recognition as the real delegates
from New Jersey. The wires did not
go into details about the troubles, but
Mr. Eltwced Fomeroy tells all about it
in the latest number of The Inde
pendent. From this, it appears that the
Hearst men were more than justified in
Mr. Pomeroy shows that at the
primaries, though Hearst men were
elected, the credentials were given to
the opposition. Hearst men could not
get near the polls In some places;, in
others the primaries were held behind
barns, without notice, two or three men
getting together and fixing up the dele
gation. The Hearst men got even
then S5 of the 181 delegates from Essex
county; they would have had nearly all
if there had been fair primaries; they,
In fact, elected 100 to 110 of the dele
gates, a clear majority.
A caucus of the delegation was hold,
in which the chairman, put in by the
machine, refused to recognize any of
the Hearst delegates, put everything
through on the machine programme,
refused to listen to an appeal, and sup
pressed everything that was not agreed
At the convention the delegates from
Cumberland county, 32 in number, al
most unanimously for Hearst, though
they had their regular credentials, were
ousted, and a fake list made up by the
county chairman (there was not even
a contesting delegation) was seated;
most of these had not even been voted
on at the primaries. In Camden
county, 77 out of 90 delegates, were for
State Committeeman John A. Smith;
tney were ousted, ana the Thompson
gang given their seats.
In the Second Congressional district
the delegation, by a voto of 102 to 21,
chose French and Brown to go to St.
Louis; there was no contest over it, but
two other men, whose names had not
been mentioned, were reported to the
convention and ratified. When the dele
gation from Essex county presented
themselves for admission to tho con
vention in tho afternoon, the door
keeper, aided by a lot of toughs, refused
admission to the So Hearst men, tore
up their credentials, though he himttilf
had signed them; and he sent In other
men in their places. J. R. Buchanan of
Montclair, though he had a platform
ticket, was seized by toughs and put out
of the hall.
Tho work of the convention was a
repetition of that at the caucus; recog
nition waa refused to every one who
had not been agreed on, and the pro
gramme was put through without a
break. Mr. Pomeroy is sure that' In
spite of the dark-lantern primaries, the
Hearst men would have had a large
working majority if those who held,
bona fide credentials had been seated.
If there had been fair primaries as well,
and .a fair credentials committee, the
Hearst men would have had not less
than three-fourths of the convention.
A State's delegation was thus stolen,
its real preference reversed, free
action suppressed, and the popular
choice outraged. It may not be con
sidered as funny a proposition as the
words of the protesting negro In poli
tics: yet if there is humor in cheating
at the primaries and in conventions,
certainly New Jersey's Parker Demo
crats are entitled to the laurels as the
funniest fellows alive.
A curious interpretation of the word
"white" as applied to a race is coming
Into vogue in Texas. At the Burleson
County primaries, the test for voters
waa: "1 am a white man, and pledge
myself to vote for the nominees of thl
primary." And It was voted by the
county Democratic executlvo commit
tee that the word "white man" as used
in the declaration agreed on and here
quoted, should be construed to exclude
Mexicans and Italians. This Is narrow
ing the Interpretation of the phrase
"whito man" with a vengeance. About
tho next thing we may expect ,wlll bo
that men from the North are no longer
considered "white men" in the South,
and that they will bo excluded from the
primaries and the polls.
TlE REPUDIATION ISSUE.
A decision recently rendered by the
United States Supreme Court, though
little has been said about it, is of far
more Importance than the Northern Se
curities case, or the "coal roads" case,
where the court sustained tho conten
tion that those roads must show their
books and contracts.
There is in this country a vast
quantity of repudiated Slate bonds.
Eleven of the Southern States have
borrowed sums (says The Independent)
which now amount, with accrued inter
est, to about seven hundred million dol
lars; and "this debt they have wiped
from their books by the simple process
of refusing to pay." This refusal they
have been able to make 'good, because
under the Constitution an Individual or
a corporation cannot sue a State.
But one Slate may sue another. And
under this privilege various attempts
to make a State the agent or represen
tative to sue on such defaulted bonds
and Interest, have been made; always,
however, without success, as It was not
the genuine claim of the State.
Now, however, a case has come
squarely on in which one State sues
another In its own behalf, in the Fed
eral courts, and gets judgmont on some
of those repudiated bonds. The owner
of ?27,000 of them made a clear gift of
the bonds to South Dakota, rellnquqlsh
ing all Interest In them, and suggest
ing that If It could collect, it might use
the money for its schools or other pub
lic institutions, at the same time inti
mating that more of such bonds might
bo forthcoming if the suit were successful.
It was successful, anu now the re
pudiating States have awakened to the
peril of their po3ltlon. If the owners
of those bonds choose to make presents
of them to tho States, those States can
sue In the Federal courts and get Judg
ments and orders of sale of any prop
erty of the defaulting States, that
comes within the jurisdiction of the
It is the most upsetting decision
that has been rendered for a long
time. Those States which repudiated
their bonds have for a generation or
two thought that they were secure In
their rnscality, and could defy the
creditors whom they wronged. Thus
(as The Independent quotes), one of the
Governors of Mississippi defiantly and
Insultingly referred to the matter of re
fusing to pay certain bonds which had
fallen Into the hands of the Rothschilds,
in this puerile manner:
In his veins Hows tho blood of Judas and
of Shylock. . . . He has advanced
money to the Subllmo Porte, and takon as
security a mortgage upon tho holy city of
Jerusalem and the sepulcher of our Lord.
... It Is for tho people to say whether
this mnn shall have a mortgago upon our
cotton fields and mako serfs of our chil
dren. Now, suppose Rothschild had done all
this, whloh he had not; would that
be any reason why Mississippi should
refuse to pay back the money It had
borrowed? But the childish dishonesty
of the plea is disgusting, any way one
can look at It, and It Is such depravity
of morals, combined with the dis
honesty of the thing, which makes one
glad that at last a way has been found
to make the defaulters come to time.
IN THE MArTER OF SPELLING.
It has come to be a general remark
that the pupils in our public schools
are not able to spell; this in fact is
conceded. But how to remedy the mat
ter is the question. Some suggest drill
similar to the old "spelling bees;" some,
that the pupils should be marked for
bad spelling wherever it occurs In any
of the written exercises. But these are
all spoken of in a half-hearted way, as
though it was not expected that they
could be adopted. In fact, there is no
indication of any tendency to adopt
them vigorously in any place.
Some, indeed, deny the necossity of
learning to spell; they say that wlih
an unphonetic, irregular language like
ours, it is not to be expected that the
masses of the people should bo asked
to learn to be expert spellers; that they
never were so, never will be, and the
effort to mako them so is a waste of
time. And It must be-odmittnd that
there Is a good deal more In their view
of the case than would appear at first
But the remedy proposed by the advo
cates of this theory Is worse than the
trouble which it is designed (but would
not be effectual) to cure. They propose
phonetic spelling. Tho trouble, with this
is that the same word does not eound
alike to all ears, and the variableness
of spelling would be increased rather
than diminished by this remedy. The
fact is, that changes in and variations
of pronunciation am quite as marked as
the variations in spelling.
What Is to be done, then? Must we
continue to be a people of poor spellers?
It Is not likely that there will be much
Improvement as long aH present meth
ods prevail, and the present neglect of
spelling is continued. The true remedy
(which can never be expected to be
wholly and universally effective under
any system whatever) is to first yield to
some standard of authority in spelling,
and then work to it. Keep It con&tanily
before the pupil that he must 00 his
best in spelling and Insist upon correct
ness In every exercises he writes, what
ever its nature. This, begun early and
continued throughout the school life,
will be effectual If any practice will,
and If under it the pupil does not gradu
ate a good speller, then nothing cou.'d
have made him on&
PRICES OF PRODUCTS.
From the Phlludolphla Ledger.
Some singular figures, tho explanation
of which Is not obvious, arc presented
In a comparison of wholesale prices of
stage products prepared by the Bureau
of Statistics of ihe Department of Com
merce. In the closing week of March
quotations for nearly all the great
classes of domestic production were
lower than those at the corresponding
date In 190?!, the chief exceptions being
cotton, wool, wheat, corn, oats and re
fined petroleum. On the other hand,
prices of many articles imported for use
In manufacturing advanced. Another
curious fact Is that while beef cattle
show an Increase family beet has fallen.
Mess pork is also cheaper, but tea and
coffee are among the items which cost
more. These changes are slight and,
while they may affect the transactions
of wholesalers, there has been no appreciable-
lowering of family market bills.
Wholesalers, Jobbers and retailers must
first adjust prices. It takes a long time
for a reduction in price to reach the re
