H it will be no surprise to-xhear that Hol-
H hind and Denmark have concluded a
H treaty of arbitration by which they
agree to submit- to The Hague court all
V differences, without exception, which
K are not settled by the ordinary chan-
H nels of diplomacy. The only rcscrva-
B tlon is that covered by clause 1C of the
Hj convention, which excludes cases where
1 the vital interests or the honor of cither
K rarty are involved. This Is the first in-
H' stance in which two states have made
H. a general treaty of arbitration, and a
supplementary clause leaves It open to
other signatory powers to Join on a
similar footing. The treaty now awaits
ratification by tho states-general.
THE POLITICAL GOSSIP.
O'f all tho dilemmas of all the poli
ticians In the country, that of the Popu
lists, now holding an alleged National
convention in Springfield, Illinois, is the
most amusing. Absolutely Impotent
now, whereas they have for the last
two quadrennial periods dictated both
platform and candidate to a great par
ty, their plight and bewilderment are
comical. The delegates In attendance
recognize to the full tho ridiculousness
of their "position, and bewail the error
through ' which their convention was
called before that of tho Democrats.
Four years ago thoy had their con
vention first, at Sioux Falls; and they
not only nominated the candidate for
the coming Democratic convention, but
laid down the platform for that body,
both of which the Democrats were
bound to accept It Is possible that
those who called this Populist conven
tion to meet ahead of tho Democratic
convention, had an Idea that they could
repeat their performance of four years
ago. If they had. they havo had a
rude awakenlng from their silly dream,
and they exhibit themselveS'as a laughing-stock
for the public. "Whenever a
party gets to that position, it might as
well go out of business.
In the meantime, the Democrats are
doing the real work for the Populists,
and compelling the latter to stand by
and look on without any power to take
part. The gossip, the pulling and haul
ing, the sec-saw, first Parker up, and
then Parker down; Gorman day and
Cleveland djy, with Bryan standing
ready with his stuffed club to hit
whichever head comes up, with equal
vigor and entire Impartiality It all
makes an Interesting spectacle. Many
preliminary battles will be fought out
today and tonight, and many plays for
advantage will be made. ,The fight for
delegates Is on, with contests from
many States, that claim that the dele
gates accredited hold their credentials
by force and fraud, and that the legal
representatives of the Democratic
masses are the contestants. The latter
will necessarily lose In most cases,
for the primary reason that the votes of
the fraudulent delegates are necessary
to the schemes of the bosses, and for
the further reason that a convention
that had been purified of fraudulent
delegates would not be a right Demo
OPPOSITION TO THE ANT.
"We have spoken hitherto of the find
ing of an ant in Guatemala which 19
sure death toThe cotton boll weevil, and
which keeps the cotton fields of i Its na
tive region free from the weevil.
Agents of the United States Depart
ment 'of Agriculture, who made the
find of this ant and the discovery of
its beneficial work on the boll weevil,
have been preparing to Import a lot of
those ants Into Texas In order to see
whether they will not also save the cot
ton fields there by exterminating the
But a Texas planter has announced
his determination to enjoin the Intro
duction of this ant. He doesn't know
about ts properties, but judges that If
It cap kill the boll weevil it must have
powerful nippers, and If It has, It will
bite the bare feet of the cotton-plcikers,
and prevent them doing their work. It
is his Idea that it won't do any good
to raise big fields of cotton If they can't
get It picked they might as well let
the cotton be ruined by the bolt weevil
as to have a good crop, and not get It
picked because the ants drive the pick
ers out of the field. And yet, no doubt
he will .be unsuccessful In his opposi
tion to the lnbrlnglng df the ant, for
his fellow-planters will not be likely to
agree with his views, while the agents
of the Department of Agriculture are
so many and so active, that they are
pretty certain to get their way, and
bring In those ants in spite of any and
Even at the awful prospect of having
the cotton-pickers wear shoes and
trousers, tho effort to exterminate the
boll weevil beetle will certainly be
That order of President Harrlman for
sixty thousand tons of steel rails for
his roads, ought to have a stimulating
tone on the Iron and steel market,' One
sixth of this Is for use on the Union
Pacific, one-third on the Texas Cen
tral, one-sixth on the Oregon Short
Line, and one-third for the Southern
Pacific And besides all this, the rails
for the San Pedro. Los Angeles & Salt
Lake railroad must also be furnished.
The handling and placing of all this
steel will be a good, lively business,
which will not only add materially to
the solidity of the railway tracks, but
will give employment to many persons
in doing the work.
The unfair methods taken In Euro
pean countries to disparage goods of
American manufacture are Illustrated
by an instance reported to the Depart
ment of Commerce and Labor by C. J.
King, Consular Agent at Lille, France.
He reports that in shoe stores cardboard
signs are displayed on shoes shown,
stating that they are of American man
ufacture, and 'warning the purchasers
that they ought not to buy them, be
cause the merchant selling cannot guar
antee the Amerlcau-made shoe. On de
manding an explanation, the' Consular
Agent was Informed that the shoes are
faulty, let in water, and that in case
of dissatisfaction and returns, the
American sellers will not make good.
At the same time, in tho same store, a
shoe Imitating the American shoe
(which Is the most shapely and flt-
tractlvo shoe offcrod In tho market) lo
handed the customer and recommended
for his purchase. This probably Indi
cates a hold-up policy against the
American shoemakers; but In so far as
It represents genuine business, the
American exporters ought to meet the
requirements of the trade. ' '
THE UTAH POSTMASTERS.
"What will really be tho first educa
tional meeting of the Utah postmasters
Is to be held In Provo on the 20th of
this month. It Is true that the first
meeting was held in this city on April
10th last, and the organization was per
fected at that time. But there was
nothing else done than the work of
organizing and providing for future
meetings. The real work of the as
sociation is yet ahead of it,
That work Is primarily one of edu
cation, training, and effort to obtain
better facilities and such changes in
the laws and regulations as expeiionco
may suggest to be desirable and In the
public Interest. Postmasters are changed
from time to time, and new men take
the places of tho old; and In a num
ber of tho minor offices questions come
up that puzzle the postmasters whose
range of mall-handling Is not wide; and
In all offices there may be questions
that the united acumen of tho body of
postmasters as a whole can easily an
swer, but that any one may be puz
zled over. For the settlement of prob
lems and questions of every-day ad
ministration, then, nothing Is so good
a school as these postmasters' meet
ings. And there are changes In rules
that would much expedite business
while in no wise Iinnprlling the effi
ciency of the service. For all such mat
ters, tho united action of the post
masters Is the best lever to work the
At the coming convention, It Is ex
pected that the president and tho secretary-treasurer
of the National As
sociation of Postmasters will be pres
ent. Their counsel and suggestions will
undoubtedly be of much value. There
will also be papers by postmasters of
the State on subjects related to the
postal service, explaining existing reg
ulations and conditions and noting
where changes would be advantageous.
Discussion on these papers, and also
on any point which may be raised by
any member of the association, will be
welcomed, and It Is expected that no
one will hold back1 for any cause, but
that all will come to the front and do
whatever they can to enliven the pro
ceedings. It ought to be both a pleas
ant and a profitable meeting, and The
Tribune's best wishes go out to the
postmasters In this praiseworthy ef
fort of theirs.
THE USUAL IMPOSTURE.
An Importance which Is wholly un
warranted has been puffed by the Dem
ocratic and mugwump press Into some
remarks about Independence for the
Philippines, which have been made by
the visiting Filipinos now In this coun
try. These comprise a party of edu
cated men, not representing nor claim
ing to represent their countrymen In
any capacity, but who are here simply
for observation, and to note at first
hand the workings of republican Insti
tutions. In various places they liavj
been heartily welcomed and entertained,
and they have been given every oppor
tunity to see what they desired, and to
learn just how the various forms' of
municipal, district, county, State and
National Governments are conducted
In this country.
Among other places they have visited
Rochester, New York, and w"bre there
the guests of General Otis, whom they
knew and' advised with when he was
Governor of the nrchlpelaso. A care
ful report of their Ideas and sentiments
was made by the Democrat and Chron
icle of Rochester, in which they "ex
pressed themselves as much gratified
with the treatment accorded their coun
trymen by the United States Govern
ment. Each and all spoke In highly
complimentary terms of the adminis
tration of General Otis during the two
years he was In the Islands. Through
out the remarks of the Filipinos there
ran the thought that lome lime, after
they had grown strong enough for self
government, It would be accorded them.
They recognized that, as far as self
govornment Is concerned! they (their
people) arc yetiis children."
- That Is a wholly different thing from
the rampant and dictatorial things
they are tricked Into saying, or fals'ely
reported as Baying, in the Pemocratlc
newspapers. It is reasonable and prob
able to say that these are their senti
ments, and It Is evident. that the howl
for immec'late Independence for the
Philippines comes not from this parry
of visitors, but is the same old antl-lm-perlal
howl, masquerading fraudulent
ly under the pretense that It comes
from another source.
Judging by the reported order from
the Japanese Government to a New
York firm for ten thousand horses, har
dy and of the smallest efficient size,
the range horses of Utah and surround
ing States ought to be Just the sort of
animals the Japanese want, further
particulars of this Japanese order for
horses will be awaited with much In
terest In all this region, for the supply
of hardy horses of a comparatively
small size Is aood general description
of horses that are both numerous and
to spare throughout all this mountain
region. And there can not be the
slightest question of the power and en
durance of the native animals. Thus
far, but little profitable use has been
found for those range horses; but this
opening looks like a good one; and if
the Japs would try ten thousand of
them, they would be pretty sure to
want ten thousand more.
