THE PRESIDES I 'S I'OSI IION.
Those partisan critics who arc
disposed to make light of the investigating
committee that President
McKtnlcy has appointed to inquire
into the conduct of various departments
of the military service and to
fix the responsibility for the alleged
mismanagement, should read carefully
tho President's instructions to
fie committee. It is farthest from
the wish of the chief executive thai
this committee be a "whitewashing"
committee. It is the President's desire
that the military branch of the
government be as effective as possible.
Tho European governments
have reduced their military organization
to an exact science The
American attache appointed to attend
the recent military rcicws in France
has reported that the management of
the commissary and quartermaster's
departments in the large European
nations is as nearly perfect as possible
; that this government would do
well to adopt their methods of or
ganization. It will be the work of
the coming congress to change the
rules now gocrning our departmental
organization so as to secure the
greatest efliciency. The work of
this committee will pave the way for
such congressional work. But in
addition the people and the administration
demand to know the defects
now existing. They also must know
where the blame lies for the mismanagement
that is supposed to have
existed and that this blame be fixed.
It is with this in view that the Presi
dent has appointed his committee.
Tho commission has plenary powers
and if it does its duty the people will
have the information they desire and
congress much valuable and needed
In addressing the commission, tho
President said, among other things:
"Gentlemen: Before suggesting
the matters which shall come before
you for investigation, I destre to express
my appreciation to each of you
for your willingness to accept the
patriotic service to which you have
been invited. You are to perform
ouc of the highest public duties that
can fall to ary citizen ; and your un
selfishness in undertaking it makes
me profoundly grateful.
'There has been in many quarters
severe criticism of the conduct of the
war with Spain. Charges of criminal
neglect of tho soldiers in camp
and Held and hospital and in transports
have been so persistent that,
whether true or false, they have made
a deep impression upon the country.
It is my earnest desire that you shall
thoroughly investigate these charges
and make the fullest examination of
the administration of the war department
in all of its branches, with a
view to establishing the truth or falsity
of these accusations.
"I put upon you no limit to the
scope of your investigation. Of all
departments connected with the army
I invito the closest scrutiny and examination,
and shall afford every
facility for the most searching in
quiry, luc records of the war department
and the assistance of its
oillccrs shall be subject to your
"I can not impress upon you too
trongly my wish that your investigation
shall bo so thorough and complete
that your report, when made,
will fix the responsibility for any
failure or fault by reason of neglee',
incompetence or maladministration
upon the oillccrs and bureaus responsible
therefor if it be found that
the evils complained of have ex
entitled to know whether or not the
citizens who so promptly responded
to the call of duty have been neglected
or misused or maltreated by
the government to which they so
willingly gave their services If
there havo been wrongs committed,
the wrong doers must not escape conviction
A NATIONAL SAFEGUARD.
Tho brilliant but thus far brief career
of Ex-Secretary of State Day
illustrates ono of those phases of
American political life thai endear
our form af government to the people.
We like to believe that theo
retically every American boy may be
president. Just as long as such N
the case, just so loog are the
that underlie this government
safe. Our law-makers will held the
rights of the people sacred.

Tho Washington correspondent of
tho Chicago Record tells this story :
Judge Day was giving his expert
enco to a friend in Canton recently
while ho was resting between the close
of his labors as see rt't ary of state and
the taking on nf his responsibilities
as chairman of the peace commission.
He spoke of the momentous sccno at
the white house when tho peace protocol
was signed. It was a great
historical event and the gentlemen
who participated were ntlerward pho
tographed in a group that their faces
might not be forgotten. After the
signatures had been attached to the
document that closed the war the
president made a brief impromptu
address, which was eloquently
to by the Frcuch ombat
Judge Day says that, by one of
those menial phenomena fur which
we are not rcjp'iusible, while M.
Cainbon was speaking his mind went
back thiity years to the lime ho
met President MeKinley. Doth had
recently come to Canton to practice
law and were employed on opposi'e
sides of a case that involved less
than S20. It was tried before a
country justice of the peace iu a
blacksmith shop down in tho southeast
corner of Stark county, and to
save expenses the opposing counsel
drove there in the same vehicle.
Thirty years later they stood together
as the chief figures in the diplomatic
negotiations that closed a war, one as
presidenthiid tho other as secretary
Tiik suggestion recently made hy
the Sun that a commercial line of
telegraph posts be established
throughout the city, thus greatly reducing
the number of poles and improving
tho appearance of our streets,
has met with marked approval by the
citizens of Paducah. The large
number of poles ou our principal
streets is an eyesore, in addition to
the fact that the poles take up agrcat
deal of space. Tho council would
be showered with congratulations
should it remove all tho unnecessary
It is- announced now that 10,000
Spaniards residing in the Island of
Porto Riuo have refused to live in the
island under the American tlag, and
have demanded that they be returned
to Spain at the expense of the government.
Nothing in the situation
of the Porto Hican question would
suit this country better than that the
above statement, which comes from
Madrid,sbould prove true. It would
mean room for 10,000 up-to-date
American citizcDs and that is what
we want in Porto Hico.
