Hiding for u 'Fall.
The downfall of the Spaidsh premier,
Cauovas del Castillo, is what, in a mule
Tace, would bo called a victory. In point
of fact the Tctuan episode, resulting m
the withdrawal of liberal and dissident
conservative members from the Cortes, has
been a godsend to him, and he has saddled
It and ridden it for a fall.
Nothing could have happened more for
tunately for Canovab, than the Oppor
tunity to take advantage of a parlia
mentary situation and get out from under.
Confronted with the dismal failure of his
heartless and bloodthirsty policy in Cuba;

' The political madness of Thomas Bracket!
Itecd beemsto havclnrected hiscapoulzed
Republican majority in the suppressed
House of Representatives In that nom
inal body yesterday Mr-Terry of Arkansas
rose to a question of privilege and of
fered a resolution providing for immedi
ate organization of the Comndttee on For
eign Affairs, that the Cuban belligeiency
resolution paired by the Senate and other
appropriate matters might have piompt
and ordeily consideration. Thomas Brack
ctt Ree.l lost no time In hammering Mr.
Terry Into his scat and declared his reso
lution out of order. Mr. Terry appealed
and the Autocrat tried his best to ignore
blm, but finally was compelled to submit
iuo question to the Houso.
On a yea and nay vote Mr Terry was
suppressed by ninety jnlsreprcscntaUveRc
publicans against sixty Democratic and
other friends of the people and of liberty
, The ninety ul!iC3 of Spain, the "busi
ness Interests,' the Sugar Trust and
tho Oluey-Atkins-Reed-Long-De Lomc-Hale-Uoar-Hawley-navcmeyer
on record by name. They will wish they
llnuna's Cuban Intentions.
, The resignation of the Canovaa ministry
and the probable results from It excite
American interest and fill the columns of
the press. The principal question in Wash
ington Is: What difference will it make
in the uttitude of this country, or In the
prospects generally for Cuban independ
ence? ir the repotted Interview with the
Secretary of State, published In the New
"York World, Is correct, nothing in the
changing situation Is likely to mar our
relations of allied friendship with Spain.
Secretary Sherman is quoted as declaring
that the "reforms" which Senor Sagasta
has In view arc such as he would recom
mend the Cubans to accept. It cannot be
doubted, that Secretary Sherman speaks
for Mr Hanna, if it be true that he ha

World report. It is stated that Mr. Cal

fence between Spain and Cuba, notwith

the course of the Spanish authorities. He
will make only a verbal report to the Presi

a written one made by Consul General Lee
which we sincerely" hope Is -not marked
"private and confidential."
It may be said with confidence that
today all indications point to a desire on
tho part of the Adminlsttatlon to avoid
anytnlng that would tend to Jeopardize
the sovereignty of Spain In Cuba. The
"business interests" and the Sugar Trust
are known to favor the schema of autonomy
and to viclouslyoppose anything that would
wink at Cuban Independence or even
belligerency. There is not the least use.
in mincing words. Senator Ilanuals atone
with the Spanish bondholders and the
Sugar Trust against the cause of liberty;
and Senator Hanna is the Administration.
Arbitration Agitation Heuowed.
It Is evident that we were quite right in
accepting the essay of Mr Carl Sehurzou
arb:tiation as the opening gun In a cam
paign for the revival of that treacherous
British scheme "The National Arbitra
tion Committee" has already broken lo-e
with an address to the country, couched in
luugtioge so like the text of the Schurz
paper in Harper's Weekly that it J.s prob
able he wrote It
"The National Arbitration Committee"
calls attention to the fact that the project
was authorized by a Joint resolution of
the Congress passed in 1890, but is care
ful not to add that said resolution was
carefully promoted from the British for
eign office and lobbied through in Wash
ington by a member of the House of Com
mons. The addruis contends that the re
jection of the Cleveland-Olney conspiracy
ngalnst the Monroe doctrine, the Nicaragua
Canal aud the right of the Ameiiean peo
ple to pay foreign bondholders in tlte
money of the contract, was agaiust pre
vailing national couviction; which is a
statement too mendacious to delude many
persons. For some time before the final
rejection of the treaty, Senators were
snowed under by letters begging them to
save the honor cf the couutry from the
disgrace and enslavement to Great Britain
that would follow ratification Many of
these memorialists were people who pre
viously had been led to favor the scheme
through tlie careful propaganda worked
m its support from Wall street, but had
discovered their mistake when the real
purjioses of the conspiracy were exposed
by Senator Morgan.
The "National Arbitration Committee"
suppresses bueh facts and declares. "By
every available mode of expression the
people, without distinction of party or lo
cality, manifested their desire for the rati
fication of the treaty. Seldom has a na
tional measure received a support so cor
dial. We believe that the national conviction
remains essentially unchanged. It appears
that the vast majotity of our citizens are
still In favor of an equitable system of
arbitration between the two countries.
They still think, with President McKlnley
m the words of his inaugural address, that
the treaty deserved approval, "not merely
as a matter of policy, but as a duty of man
kind,'' and that "the importance and moral
influence ortheraUfication of such a treaty
can hardly be overestimated in the cause
or advancing civilization," and, with Mr
CIeetnnd, that the treaty had in It "the
promise of transcendent good."
Mr. Cleveland was rlghtin one thing The
treaty bad In it "the promise of trans
cendent good" for the foreign political
Interests opposed to the Monroe doctrine
and to our control of the Nicaragua Canal;
also for the foreign holders of American
national bonds, wLo, with such a treaty,
could bring under European monarchical
arbitration the question or our liability
to pay our debts in gold coin, notwith
standing a different kind of money Is
made a part of the contract.
This renewed arbitration movement will
need constant watching and exposure. It
Is both villainous and dangerous
The I ssuf of Bradstreet'i, dated May 29,
comments on the exportation of $4,100,

doubt that ali this bullion will find its

Ruwsia, both which governments are hoard

on. Obviously then, these shipments re

money to the extent of their quantity.

At the meeting of the Maryland State
Democratic committee in Baltimore on
Wednesday, It became apparent that the
most complete harmony reigns throughout
the party in that commonwealth. In other
words.it is manifest that Got man is in the

Senator Lindsay, who Is one of the fore
most constitutional lawyers in the Sen
ate or In thecountry for that matter, says:
"Senator Morgan is clearly right in his
contention that the constitutionality of
the tariff bill is being placed in jeopardy
by the action of the House." Autocrat
Reed affects to laugh at the idea. He
will feel rather uncomfoitable when he
learns of certain measures that are being
matured In TCew York", Boston and' Phila

newspaper. When they use slang in their
headlines they take pains to enclose it

A leading paper in New York, objects
to tho relinquishment of tho beer tux;
says that It would yield $25,000,000 or
$30,000,000 of revenue, and would simply
Impose upon concrete wealth some small
shaio of Its proper contribution to the

in buch a case "concrete wealth" would
bear the burden? Of course, it would not.
It the price of beer remained where It Is,
the quality would be reduced to make
the diffeieuce. Mr. II anna knows this
and is very much afraid that the Republican
voters of Ohio know it, too.
If we do not look out the Japanese will

Semitor Stewart does not believe with

will win our by cettlng their full vote on
that account. "You cannot avoid the fact
that the campaign is national whether Mr.
Bryan goes there or not," said Senator
Stewart. The mere fact that Mark Hanna

with the President, his control of him,
makes him a national ilgure, and one,

In the Review of Reviews for June, the
notable articles are "The Queen's Em
pire," by W. T. Stead; "8ugar; the Ques
tion of the Day," by Herbert Myrick, and
"Teachers' Pensions,' by Elizabeth A.
Allen. Mr. Stead's article reviews tlie
progress made in the sixty yeaijj of Queen
Victoria's reign, in a most Interesting way
'air. Myrick, who is the editor of that
widely known periodical, the American
Agriculturist, begins his article on the
sugar schedule with the remark that tho
question of the day in the United States
Senate seems to be "to sugar, or not to
sugar." He gives, in brief, the history of
the sugar industry in the United States, and
his own opinion as to its future. The de
partment called "The Progress of tlie
World," is illustrated with several news
paper cartoons, among them one from The
Times ou the Hawaiian issue.aad one from
the New York Telegram representing Mr
Chapman sitting in his cell, and politely
told that if he doesn't see what he wants
he must ask for it. The cartoonist of tho
Telegram, Mr. Bush, is given an article all
to himself a little further on, In which his
career and qualities are spoken of, and
several of bis drawings reproduced.
Perhaps the most striking article In the
June Century Isthaton the Shaw Memorial,
by three well-known authors: Edward
Atkinson, who gives the history ot the
monument; William A. Coffin, who con
tributes an article on St. Gaudens, the
sculptor, and T. W. Higgmson. who writes
ot "Colored Troops Under "Fire," giving
tlie history ot the Fifty-fourth Massachu
setts, which Col. Shaw commanded. The
article is carefully and profusely Illus
trated and Interesting In every way. Tho
Queen's Jubilee, ot course, comes in for Its
shaie of attention, in the shape of two or
three portraits of the-Queen, an article on
the coronation roll, and one on "Queen
Victoria," by Thomas F. Bayard Mary
Hartwell Catherwood's serial on "The
Days of Jeanne d'Arc," and that ot S. Weir

Briscoe, "How Sarah Paid for Peace." It
is full of humor as refreshing and bizarre
as a lunch off wlntergreen leaves.
The leadingartlclcof the Atlantic Monthly
for June is on "Greece and the Eastern
Question," by Benjamin Ide Wheeler. It
necessarily deals with the subject rrom the
broad hittorical view, since magazine ar
ticles must be prepared far In advance of
publication; and, therefore. none ot its con
clusions are injured by the recent swift
developments in the Levant. Albert Shaw
contributes an able article on "Muni
cipalistn and Greater New York," and this
is followed by one of the best articles
ever written on our educational system,
entitled "The Lock-step ot the Publlo
Schoole," by William J. Shearer The
writer, who speaks not from theory, but
fiom experience, points out the waste ot
time, energy and brain work under the
present herding bystem ot our scliools; the
evils of the piomotion examination, with its
consequent cramming and excitement, and
after doing this, proposes a simple and
erfective remedy. Another Interesting ar
ticle Is "On Being Civilized Too Much," by
Henry Chllds Merwin. Mr. Menvin's idea
is, that people may become so civilized as
to low valuable qualities which belong to
the primitive man, such as simplicity ot
tastes and moties, and Instinctive lean
ings toward patriotism and generosity He
does not say anything about the danger ot
over-civilization lii International ques
tions, but the principle is there. Just the
same T. W.Higginson continues his papers
on "Cheerful Yesterdays." Paul Leicester
Ford and Charles Egliert Craddock are rep
resented by serial stories.
Tlie Cosmopolitan for June contains a
valuable paper in tlie line of political his
tory, by T. B. Connery, called "The Secret
History of the Garfield Conkllng Tragedy."
Tlie illustrations are almost us Interesting
as the article, and the data given by Mr
Connery are of especial interest Just at
present, in view of the icturn of Mr Piatt
to the Senate. That clever Israelite, I.

In his usual entertaining and forceful way.
One of tho prettiest and daintiest bits of
verse in the month's mugazincliterature is
contributed to this number ot the Cosmo

called '-'Sweet Peas."
The liuney for June Is a Byron number,
and tlie photographs of Byroo portrait and

ter, and through his courtesy, arc for the
first time reproduced and published.
The particularly notable feature In St
Nicholas for June Is an article by C. T.
Hill, on "The Risks of a Fireman's Life,''
illustrated by the author. Every boy and
girl, and a good many of the older people
as well, will read this sketch with deep
Interest There is also a charming bit of
literary hietory, by Edith M. Nicholl, con
cerning "A Great Poet and a Little Girl,"
which describes the encounter of a three-year-old
lassie with Lord Tennyson, on
the day which happened to be both his
birthday and hers.
Llppincott'sfor June contains Its usual
complete novelette, this time entitled "As
Any Gentleman 5Hght," by William T.
Nichols, author of "My Strange Patient."
It Is an English tale, with a considerable
amount of exciting adventure and mystery
betvveen the first page and last. Any gen
tleman might doubtless have had these
adventmes but some gentlemen would
not caro to have them. A delightful bird
sketch by Lnlnge I). Morgan, describes "A
Feathery Debut," beingthe adventuresof a
brood of thrushes, told in something the
style of Olive Thome Milter, or John Bur

first time since the merchant made his
speecli in which he handled he Admin
istration harshly because good tlima hud
not returned according to the promises
made during the campaign last November.
The President was the first to the at
tack, and he charged Wanamaker with
endeavoring to sow the seeds of discord
In the party. Then the heads ot McKlnley

together in an earnest conversation Sud

we are all good Republicans."

good humored sarcasm "I have read your
Just then Mayor Warwick stepped up
to stop thr argument, and he put in "Oh,
yes; certainly weare all good Republicans "
This was re-echoed by the gentlemen
present In the private room of the museum
secrptary, and what was about to be a
lively, although a good-natured, scene was
nipped in the bud The President then
took the former Postmaster General's ana
and the two moved oft through the museum
building. There was a sigh of relief and
the Incident was the theme of conversa

the attack ot Mr. Wanamaker, made as it
was two weeks ago, on the ulght ot Mc
Klnley's arrival here to attend the Wash
