QUESTION OF PROTECTION.
In his founders' day speech at the
commencement exercises of the* I.aw
renceville School, at Princeton, oil
Tuesday, Hon. Groyer Cleveland said:
?-" How then shall the people pro?
tect themselves against the folly of
a departure from their national
purposes and against the crime of
unnecessary and unjustifiable war?
Manifestly by an intelligent study
on their part of the character of the
government and the exaction of a
clear apprehension on the part of
those who represent them?in pnbliu
life of their nation's mission and of
the baneful effect of war upon a
nation's health. This considera?
tion emphasizes in the strongest
possible mannet- the Important!*'
of a large participation by thought?
ful and educated men in political
affairs. Nothing, however, will be
found sufficient as a protection of
the people against betrayal, if con?
science and moral courage are
lacking. Intelligence, study, and
knowledge arc not protective
agencies unless they are regulated j
and guided by a conscientious and
serious desire to do right and by an
adherence to patriotic conviction.
If we rightly remember the Incidents
leading up to the results that provok?
ed these remarks, it seems to us that
Princeton's most distinguished citizen
has hold of the wrong end of the ques?
In the discussion of the question*
which provoked the war it was the
President and Congressmen who had
the greatest need for protection against
being forced into hasty and ill-advised
action. The course of the administra?
tion and legislative branches of the
government was so conservative and
cautious that the people threatened to
take the matter into their own hands.
Theoretically, it is all right to talk
about protecting the people from the
action of their rulers, but In free and
Intelligent America the people arc well
aware that they hold the remedy In
their own hands and they know how to
use it, too. when the occasion arises.
The efforts of trie French ministry to
attract attention by resigning remind*
one of the actress who follows the o!<l
time "fake" of losing her diamonds oi
getting a divorce in order lo obtain a
little free advertising. If I he Kreuch
statesmen really wish to create a sen
sation the should agree upon some sen?
sible proposition and let it cryst.alize
into a policy.
This is the very iatest effort

surprising thai some of our esteemed
contemporaries arc demanding "peace

The national colors are not so
pretty anywhere as In the face of ?

No doubt our esteemed contemporary
has frequently looked Into the combi?
nation and gives its opinion as an ex?
The Americans are pretty good on
schemes, but none of them has yet
shown sufficient versatility to concoct
a plan which has for Us object the

The happiest living being In the

came listless and seemed to take no
interest in life or Hies, and gradually
drooped during Hi.Id. rainy weather,
till one morning when la- was found
? ?old and stiff. His master regretfully
decided on a military funeral, so Bill
was buried in the .-and ami a firecrack?
er exploded over his grave. Hill's for?
gotten grave was trampled by many
feet during the next few days. Then
came the hot weather, when the tuen
were forced to seek what shelter their
little tents afforded. While some of the
boys, half stripped, lay panting in a
tent they observed a movement In the
sand in front of their floor, and on
closer inspect ion discovered Billy
Warts contentedly winking ami blink?

bulging with Hies he had snapped olT a
