J NO 11EASOX TO IHU'E.
3'here does not seem to bt? any especial
promise of peace in the offer of the Ital
' Ian Government to act as mediator b
tween tie British and the Boers, provid
ed the latter modify- the demands out
lined, la their plea for mediation.
The struggle of the Boers has been a
struggle for national Indei-udem-e. :tnd
it Is not likely that they will terminate
hostilities, tsare on a basis of agreement
.which shall leave the Transvaal and
Orange Free State Republics mill iu ei
r Ictence. Desperate as Is their present
plight, they have as jet given no Indica
tion of a wililngnes to surrender their
liberties until finally crushed to i-arth
by superior numbers. The hope of Euro
pean intervention is :aid to be still cher
ished by President Kxuger. and It. ex
pected to lead to a long and desperate
defense of Pretoria.
England, on the other hand, N imr
determined to bettle ouee for all the
luestion of supremacy lu South Atiica.
The British Govemmeut bees its way to
the definite subjugation ot the Uoeis and
the acquisition of the Transvaal and
Free State as crown colonics. That it
will be content with nothing less is
plainly In evidence. General Lord Rob
erts's first act on occupying Bioeiufou
tein was to declare the Free Stale Gov
ernment dissolved and to proclaim Brit
ish supremacy. The same course will
be followed In the Transvaal when Pre
toria shall have fr.lleu.
Intervention, not mediation, offers the
8le chance of the preservation of Uoer
liberties. There is a laiut promise of In
tervention by Kusia. in which event an
Anglo-Russian war would most lively
lie precipitated. With this remote like
lihood dispelled, the ultimate fate of
the Boers is cerlaiu. They must submit
to destluy iu the shape of .superior force.
WHAT'S THE TROUBLE?
Although General Wood, the Military
Governor of Cuba, recommends that
2.000 American troops be now brought
back to this country, reducing the Amer
ican army of occujkiUou to about 0.500
men, the Secretary of War disapproves
of the recommendation and declines to
net favorably Hjwn It.
Upon Its face, this Is rather a strange
proceeding. Tranquillity prevails
throughout Cuba. The claim is not ad
vanced that there is apprehension of
trouble justifying the maintenance of
the present American strength In the
island. There is. indeed, every rea.sou lo
believe that the Cuban people will con
tinue t icspect aud abide by our rule,
provided that, under such rule, they
now Ik.- allowed to establish the Inde
pendent, government of the Cuban Re
public, rollowini: which all American
troops must be withdrawn.
If. howeer. the formation of this in
deoudeut government is not lo be al
lowed, then I here will Mirvly be trouble.
The 8..V.K) Aincrirau Mieis imw iu
Cuba will he needed, and olheis must be
sent to rc-fin'orcc them. There will In
war a renewal of that war which l lie
Cubans so lon ami .,, hravcly waged
au'ainsi Spain, and which this Goteiu
luenl deil.'iicd to be a righteous w:n.
The Cubans will be lighting for iheir
indeeudeucc -and iu our declaration of
war against Spain two jearago we an
uoiwced thai they then were, ami of
ristht ought tu be. fri-e and independent.
The I'niieil States Government decs

from this time ouward will atWc lioiu

iuuucudK.s.aniI proposes
lo take In lime in acting on it report,
iiutiiiu.-ii as the Grand Jiirj "had two

ing ihU tetsuniiieudafioti ot twelve e
cepiioually represeulaiive and faithful
Si. I.ottisaus; "It was spite work, and 1
kuow tt."
This Jumping at conclusion tin the
part ot the Machine :-. cauiiot fall to
impress the public as ominous of the
certain failure of anyiitempt to reform
or improve local government by wotk
done from the inside. It is not demanded
of the Mayor that lie shall believe Supply
Commissioner Meier iucumpcleut or uu
lit for otlice on tu- Gmud Jur.t'.s recotn
metidatiou for that othecr's removal. Ititt
It Is demauded of him that be -.hall insti

the Supply Uejianmetit and that be
llall not from the very outset constitute
himself the champion d defender of
the olticial Hhcve removal Is urged for
the public Itruetit.
Supply Commissioner .Meier will be re
tallied Iu othce It machine lutltteui-e can
be made lo prevail. .Mayor .legeiiliciu
and the gaug are with him. Grand Jury
reports and public sentiment cut no
figure nltu tlnt-e riugsters. They Ialld
together "one for all; all for one." Aud
until the voters of St. l.ouis adopt this
same principle or ktanding together at
the polls against the gang, the gang will
continue lo misrule St. Louis.
IT IS THE FIRST STEP.
In his address befoie the Business
Men's, League of St. I.011N. discussing
and suggesting certain jilaua for the bel
tenueut of lo,-al municipal conditions,
Mr. Adiel Sherwood rightly character
ized as the hesl of all rolioseri leluedies
that which should lead Si. Ixuisaus to
organize and Insist iijjou a business ad
ministration or city affairs.
Until this .shall be done there Is no
hope of a materially imptoved adminis
tration of miiuiciiial affairs. With the
cily governuieiit in the hands of rlng-bt'-i-b
and professional politicians, any
aud all movements for reform aie
doomed to certalu failure. The gang
will nee to this. They hold the neces
sary jiower as long as they remain Iu
otlice. They will not jiermit 11 change
of conditions which threatens ibeir jios
bessiou of jxiwer.
It Is, indeed, a waste of time to strive
for good government under an evil ad
ministration. The maclnue gang must
be thrust out of the Cfy Hall and hon
est aud able men jiul lu their places
before thete can be the faintest promise
of ri'Iorm. The Rtisiuess .Men's League
Is 1111 excellent organization to lead Hie
jieojile iu this great aud necessary move
nieut. Its members are skilletl men of
affairs,, -j-hey are esjieeially of the class
to furnish excellent administrators ,,f
muiiicljial goveiument on a businesslike
basis.
Professor Halsey C. Ives, a former
member of the L'Hy Cotiniil, jiointetl out
to the Hiisiucss Men's League exactly
wlienlu It has failed In its duty to the
community. "Thete are men iu this
room." he declared at the recent meet
ing, "who have rejieatedty declined to
serve their jieojile on the ileu that Iheir
business would not permit them lo
do so. It is :t shame" iil it, this Mr.
Ives sjoUe the plain and unvarnished
tiuth. 1

TALK OF WHITEWASH.
Subservience to tin y.iegenheiii admin-Istt-alloli
seems lo hate led Hie Cloho
Democral to the lciiglh of ojH'iiiug a
light ou the recent Grand Jury. Edito
rially it questions l In honesty of the
Grand Jury's puipo-.- ami act-uses ii of
jiarlisan bias.
"Iu the report just Jiilbllshcd." it says,
"the ;niud Jury treats the jiolice with
tender cousiderallou aud surrounds it
with excuses even more elaborate lhau
usual. But il must be remarked that
the whitewash Is extremely thin in
spots aud enough of Ihe truth shows
through to show the complete inelli
ciency of the department. The arraign- ;
uieiit lt sufficient, though liuluteiitioual." ,
The mere naming of the members of '
the Grand Jury is a refutation of this
attack. I
The Globe-Democrat has heretofore
championed Ziegeuhciuism. lis defense
of iolice oiurts and grafters, its failure
to attach weight to the arraignment of
Supply Commissioner Meier and of the
Municipal Assembly was not uncxi'cct
ed, but Its assault on the Grand Jury
