It was natural that Chairman Ilitt
nnd oilier members of the Toncressional
Investigation Committee should have
been -eriously disturbeil hy former Con
sul Macrum's revelation of this Govern
ment's refusal to intercede for the pre
vention of war between the Itritish and
Mr. Marram's testimony indicates
that the McKinley administration has
been hostile to the IJoers from the out
fcpt It wonld mive been jiistitiahle for
the United States Government to eiert
It be.t efforts for the maintenance of
peace and the settlement of the I'.rllKh
Boer disputes on a basis that would
have saved the Boers from national ex
tinction. Through American CoumiI
General Stone at Cape Town a plea to
this effect bad been made on behalf of
the two Republics by President Steju
of the Orange Tree State.
This plea, Mr. Maemm further testi
fied, was forwarded to the President of
the I'nited Slates by Consul General
Stowe. Most Americans would be prone
to believe that such a plea from two
little Republics at the far ends of the
earth would have touched deeply tho
heart of an American President. Rut it
did not so touch President McICinley's
heart. "I was informed by Consul Gen
eral Stowe." tjestlties Mr. Marram, "that
the answer from V.'ashiuston was un
favorable." And then came the war
furred by the British fur the suhjuca
lion of the people of these two Re
publicsand the American Consul In
Pretoria was placed under the domina
tion and surveillance of the British cen
sor at Durban clurinc the war's pros
loss. The Marram testimony may well dis
turb the President and ids imperial fol
low ins. It indicates on the udininKtra
t ion's part an almost Incredible lark of
American spirit am of American
thought. It cannot but nlann the
American people by its ominous MKiiili
rauce. The ollicial American record in
the matter of the British-Boer war Is a
reproach to Americans.
FOR BETTER RESULTS.
It Is to be sincerely deplored If As
sistant Circuit A torney Hodgdon's of
ficial direction of the February fSrand
Jury's Investigation nf municipal mat
ters has been such as to lead that body
to fear that it has not received the full
benefit possible to faithful service.
A Grand Jury Is very signally de
pendent nivnn the Assistant Circuit At
torney for lejuil guidance nnd trust
worthy assistance in the prosecution of
its inquiries. An honest nnd energetic
otlicer of the law Is Invaluable in the
Grand Jury room, fine who. for partisan
or other reasons, wishes to embarrass
or nullify the work of the Grand Jurv,
leissesses exceptional opportunity to do j
so. His professional ail vice, which
should be the safety and strength nf the
Irani! Jurj then constitutes its danger
and its weakness.
Uor these reasons, therefore. It will be
hoped that Mr. Ilodgdou has not in anv
way failed in his jur.vrooin duties, aud '
thai whatever may have been left un
done in the recent Invrstlpation Is not
cliargeable to his account. The raising;
of thi' question, however, lends renewed
force to The Republic's recommendation
that there should lie a separate Grand
Jury for each Criiniual Court, that ujmn j
one 01 tliese should fall exclusively the
duty of investigating all charges of mu
nicipal corruption or iueUicIency. and
that the machinery for this work should
be organized with a view to Its especial I
Illness and freedom from partisan in
fluences. Only In this way, with the Grand
Jury and a special law officer, relieved
of the burden of felony cases and tsu-
perior to the claim or clamor of parti- '
s.'iiislup, may the best results in the
corns-lion of inunli-ip.il abuses, ho ob-
t.-iincd. The plan is irarti-ahle nhd full '
f promise. t :- f.iiiiiii.'iiili I lo tin- :il-'

There in something touching In the

licials nhfiM- romnn-t lias been con
dcinntsl hi :ui investigating t.nmd Jury
t'irn to Major Ziogcnhein for comfort
anil iuiol.'iiioii also fur renewed as

TIiom' pilloried puhlli' t-ervants htiow
that the Major will resent, ulih .-pirit

and Innucniloes" tints made as.mist tln'ir ' "'"ss Men's League will be able to nr
ollicial character, and service. Thcv'"imt in a measure fo- the iimniii.:il
ficl sure of the sympathy welling up
in the Mayor's bosom. They rest tran
inil In tlie knowietle that never will
he order an invalidation K-i.sis) on
Grand .lury "spite work," or thai. If he
doe, the investigation will lie .(inil'iclcd
with a wliitewasti brush for a probe.
And th' Major docs, not disappoint his
henchmen. .Not a hair of a sansster's
head shall suffer if he can prevent. It's
a rase of "Woodman. Sparc that Tree."
so to speak "In youth they sheltered
linn or in his i-amiiaisn for election, at
.iiij raie -aim He II protect them tiow.
What is the word of a measly Grand
lury that it should be hn-di-d by mu
nicipal saugsicrs or the Ross of the
Gangsters'; And so these men write let
ters of Urinous luilizuation to the
Major and put their tongues in their
cheeks and wink at his Honor .mil hold
their jobs in great security.
So touching - picture should not fail
to Impress the people of Si. l-ollls. If it
impresses them as n should, the gang
and the Gang rSos ought to lcam at the
polls that tin- people in turn are touched
by the fidelity of the gang to the gang.

Davis Is willing to outrage his Ameri

the justice of the Hwtkiin; or by lienr
