Hl , ' .'! stoning of her Minister at Port au
, i '1 Prince, and that Germany views the
fl j' ' il incident with calrrmcss, as her Minister
Bi j V; was not hit. The apologj to France by
H, , ; the Haitian Government was prompt
i 'I JVij and full: no doubt It avIH be made ab-
Bi J fi ject If demanded, and the same to Gcr-
' many. If the wretched incident passes
Hi . over thus ea'sily, this country will have
Hlt' reason to be happy, for It might easily
H have become an acute case of Monroe
i,, doctrine, In case the European nations
' had Insisted upon occupancy as indem-
1 I f. nity. But we have our doubts alwut

W. y ' I having In wind the severe and unjust
.'j ( 1 ( X action of Germany, on a former occa-
J ,-. ; slon. In exacting Indemnity from Haiti
1 'Ji' for "abuse" of a German resident, when
, j ( ' there was no abuse.'and when the Hal-
'fi tian authorities were altogether In the
(;. right. But a German cruiser held up
1 ' the port for damages, and they had to
Hl i be paid. If now that Haiti Is alto-
H'i 1 i';! gether in tho wrong, that wrong Is ex-
, ), cused, it will be a very curious clrcum-

H. ' V The Russian press seems determined
, to frighten itself into a fit over Amerl-

fiaak of that Japanese brandy which the

A PERSISTENT VETO.
Wc noto that Mayor Morris has again
vetoed the Council proposition to allow
tho Sealer of Weights and Measures a
fair sum for buggy hire In going about
to perform his duties of verifying and
scaling the weights and measures of the
middlemen- of this city. Ho insists
that a rig muat be bought for that of
ficial, evidently with the purpose of
making the office which Mr. Richards Is
attempting so much to magnlfs. a per
manently active affair.
We would suggest, before going so
far In the matter, that there be first a
determination of the law. So far as
the legality of tho procedure had to
date is concerned, there has been no of
firmatlon of Its validity, It Is stated
that thero-'are good lawyers who doubt
very seriously whether there Is proper
legal foundation for tho acts of the
Sealer of Weights and Measures. A
test case Is now pending boforo Judge
Dichl which Involves the validity of the
acts in question and the authority
which Is claimed.
Until that case Is decided, it might
be well to go slow, and it is our Idea
that the Council has the better of the
position. It provided a sufficient ease
ment for the official until his status Is
more perfectly defined, and that is all
that should be asked at this time.
It may be a good thing to make, this
wide advertising of the dishonesty of
Salt' Lake merchants, and proclamation
that they use false weights and meas
ures; but we do not concur in that
opinion. We don't believe that there is
any substantial basis for such a claim.
We believe that the middlemen of this
city arc in the main honest; that they
use honest weights and measures. Wo
don't believe that they mean to cheat
lliosd who buy of them, nor those of
whom they buy. And as to tho testing
of the exactness of those weights and
measures, wc are Informed that there
is no official standard here; If there had
been, as we are told and as seems
likely, the tests would have been made
long ago. As a matter of fact, what
lias been done in this hullaballoo ap
pears to have been rather technical
Let us first clear the ground, and see
Where we are at. If wc have the
rcquislto legal enactments and the
standards of test, all right; go ahead.
If not. let us stpp until we have. But
In either case, It is an outrage to ad
vertise as bumptjously as has been
done, that Salt Lake dealors arc cheats
AT GARFIELD AND BLACK ROCK.
It is sorrowful to see old Garfield in
Its decadence, "the MasonB haH an out
ing there yesterday, and many were
the reminhsconces of the great old bath
ing place, which was the chief in its
day. Those who had enjoyed the baths
there in the days of the glory of the
place sadly pointed to where the
water "used to come," and, looking
back to where it comes now, hopelessly
shook their heads. Yet not all were
hopeless. Grand Secretary Dichl, with
cheerful countenance and with the pos
Itiveness of absolute convlcJJon, pro
claimed that the old days would surely
return again; that tho rise and fall of
the lake goes In cycles of years, and
that again the water would come up to
its old level. We are all familiar with
that as a theory, and all hope that It
may be the absolute fact which Mr.
Dlehl belleres It to be.
At present, however, Garfield is out
of the question, so far as bathing fa
cilities go. Yet It would not take so
very much work to push bathing-houses
out into the lake, and make a good
bathing resort there again. And It
would not be so tremendously costly,
But oC all the places on the south
shore of the lake, old Black Rock haa
held its own the best. Not but that
the water has receded there as much
as elsewhere, but the rocky point be
yond Black Rock proper is surrounded
by living, moving, active water as no
other portion of the shore is. It was
refreshing to go out there and feel the
old swing and swirl of the moving
water, as of old. It Is a groat thing
to come In contact with, and makes
one wish that the San Pedro road wo'uld
look Intb the possibilities there, with a
view to reviving the old popularity of
that spot as a bathing' resort; for be
it known to the. newer population, as
the older rcmembern very well, there
was a time when Black Rock took the
palm a3 a bathing resort. It Is quite
possible that It might be made to do
so again. It Is clean and sweet there
now, while at all other places, the smell
from the exposed lake rim is an of
fence. It would be a great thing to
have Black Rock revived.
A good deal is being eald, and much
rubbish talked (that of the disaster be-,
ing a punishment from God for Home
body's f?ln being the worst), about tho
burning of the steamer General Slocum,
and the shocking loss of life attending
that disaster. Many remedies are
called for, and the punishment of' those
supposed to be responsible is loudly de
manded. We have no faith in the
remedies, for all fall through careless
ness and indifference; still less do we
look upon the punishment of any one as
probable In this connection, or as reme
dial or preventive of aocidents. The
only thing Is to require that vessels be
made absolutely fire proof. And even
then, no doubt, there would be disasters,
for tho American public Is po" reckless
and Indifferent alout peril and losa of
life that It seems impossible to bring
the public sentiment up to the point
where precautions are enforced or
THE CABINET CHANGES.
The transfer of Secretary Moody from
the head of the Navy Department to
tho Attorney-Generalship made vacur.t
by the resignation of Mr. Knox, Is no
doubt In accord with Mr. Moody's de
sires, though the Attorney-General docs
not rank as high In seniority as the
Secretary of the Navy. But Mr. Moody
is a good lawyer, has been United
States District Attorney for flic Eastern
District of Massachusetts, and has
served prominently as a Representative
In Congress, having been elected for
three terms. He is a strong man and
will easily maintain the traditions of
the Attorney-Generalship to their full
The successor to the Navy portfolio Is
Mr. Paul Morion of Illinois, one of the
-most prominent railroad men In .the
country. He has been since 1SDS vice
president of the Atchison, Topeka &
Santa Fe, having worked his wnj; to tho
top by service In tho old Burlington,
the C, B. & Q and with his present
railroad company. He has been promi
nent also In other business enterprises;
and Is one of the foremost citizens of
Illinois. He was born In Detroit on
Muy 22, 1857, so that he is compara
tively a young man.
The resignation of Mr. Corlolyou from
the Secretaryship of tho Department of
Commerce and Labor left a vacancy
in that office, which the President fills
by naming tho Hon. Victor 11. Mctcalf
of California, who is now representing
the Third Representative District of
that State In Congress. Mr. Metcalf
was born In Utlca, N. Y., October 10,
1S53, and so Is In his fifty-second year;
he Is serving his third term in Con
gress, and lias made an excellent rec
ord. Tho new appointments to these Cabi
net positions measure up well to the
high standard required of the Presi
dent's official family, while tho prompt
ness with which the places were filled
Is at once gratifying to tho public and
characteristic of the dash and activity
always so well manifested by President
THE CAPE TO CAIRO RAILWAY.
The Cape It) Cairo railway has been
completed to Victoria Falls, sixteen
hundred miles north of Capetown. But
the bridge over the Zambesi at tho
falls, w.hlch Is to cross the chasm Just
below the plunge, and will make tho
view one of the grandest In the world,
has pot been laid. The sectiono of the
huge single-span bridge which Is to
carry the railway across the falls are
now on their way out from England,
and it Is expected that the structure
will be completed before the end of thJs
year. Meanwhile, says the Central
News, the line will be taken a hundred
miieo further north to Kalomo the
headquarters of the Administration of
The next section to be built is from
the Zambesi to Broken Hill, 350 miles In
the direction of Lake Tanganyika. Af
ter that point nothing further has been
definitely decided. The whole length of
the line planned by Mr. Cecil Rhodes
was 5700 miles. Of this length, over 1600
miles has now been constructed from
Capetown to theZambesi. while from
Cairo the line extends 1-100 miles' south
to Khartoum. The section from the Cape
to Bulawayo was opened on November
1. 1897, and the section from Belra to
Salisbury on May 1, 1S90
Of the whole distance, therefore, more
than holf Is already completed, while
that in hand will by the end of the year
bring the completed part up to fully
three-fifths. It will run for a time
through tho wildest ahd least known
country of any railroad ever built.
THE BOY CONFESSED.
From tho New York Tribune.
Secretary Shaw told this story tho
other day as to the propriety of ex
tending clemency to violators of the
customs laws who furnish evidence
against their associates. It was at a
Echool In Mr. Shaw's native State of
Iowa, and one of tho boys had commit
ted some grave Infraction of discipline.
The teacher announced that he would
thrash the whole class if some one did
not tell him who had committed tho of
fense. All were silent, and he began
with tho first boy and thrashed every
ono in the class, until finally he reached
the last one. Then he said: "Now, If
you will tell me who did thi3 I won't
thrash you." "All right, sir. I did It,"
was tho reply.
AFTER THE THE BANQUET.
From Feathered Life.
The editor of a certain paper recently
received a fine chicken which he, sup
posing It to be fi token of appreciation
from a discriminating reader, took
home and enjoyed for dinner. Tho fol
lowing day ho received this letter:
"Deal- Editor Yesterday I sent you a
chicken In order to settle a dispute
which has arisen hero. Can you tell us
what the chicken died of7"
