The comedy of arbitration never would
tie complete tuthout a star actor In the
sUane of a European monarch. In the
latest Instance Japan suggests not a tri
bunal, but an arhitiator in the person of
King Leopold of Bclgiatn. Personally King
Leopold ib open to few objections. We al
ways Jiavc regarded him as a very fair
specimen of n king. His local opportunities
Jitvc btjn small, but his Ideas have more
tfenn made up for them. Little things
havnw said about himin connection with
the estate of his sister, the unfortunate
ex-EtMpiesb Carlotta of Mexico; but his
experience in the affairs of a lady who
has had such an unhappy connection with
matton in the western hemisphere ought
to reader him alive to things wherein
AiMrtoftn interest, are concerned".
In another direction. King Leopold is
'Tactic prtnoeps" on subjects pertaining
te 'and Interests His adventures In Africa
have affordd htm much experience. The
Congo Free State is famous evidence to
this point, and nobody Is mad enough to
euepect his Belgian Majesty of any sordid
motive in r around those premises They
have been loo philanthropic to mention,
and landgrabuing neer hah been in his
Having thus offered our little meed of
pralse to the man.it Js proper to devote
some small consideration to the facts and
other GoatderalSons We are very much
interested, or would be. In the matter of
an arbitration of differences between Ha
waii and nuy other country As our said
andscvaralinterests are particularly Ameri
can iu their scops and nature, we may
be exMieed for objecting to their settle
ment oat of hand by the "Ipse dixit'' of
any monarch of any small state iu Europe
It 1b not the small state part of it
that we so muh object to, as the Euro
pean and monarchical element in the ar
rangement; but, if Japan wants to confine
selection to among chiefs of small states,
and also wants this country to approve
of the arbitrator so selected, what would
be the matter with the governor of lihode
Island, for ln-tance?

They are having trouble In Northwestern
University. The president of that institu
tion has purchased a bicycle. Other peo
ple In the town of Evanstoa have bicycle,
and there is no law against a college
president having one, but the trouble is
just here. He doesn't know how to ride.
The proper "way for any oaa -who wishes
to "wheel Is to learn to ride before buying
Ills machine learn at some one of the
numerous riding schools, -where they keep
old wheels that -will stand knocking about,
and -where .there Is a Kind instructor with
a strap, ready to tag mound after the
learner and hold him up. But President;
Henry Wade Rogers does not do that. Ho
teems to have an idea that he can learn
through Ills inner consciousness, on hi&
own wheid, in the streets of Evanston.
The streets 'ire narrow, and more or Jprs
populous. And there you have the dif
ficulty. What "would be a young man's standing
at -hie next examination. If he should'
chance to see the college president taking
a hcaCer into a barbed-wiro fence? What
If ho lhughed7 What If some unlucky fresh
man should "be run down by the president
In Borao erraUo dive of the machine?
Suppose the president should make a "wild
clutch for help as he felt his whce.t
careen, and bo seen with his arms around
n young lady student's neck? The students
of Northwestern University have con
cluded to keep out of the streets until tho
president learns to ride
It may not be improper to express our
sympathy for the Republican gold organs
who hare aavlsed, and wisely advised,
the Tffalled-Off ".Democrats" of Ohio to
come Into the camp where "they belong
and not to make another exhibition of
themselves, as they did in the campaign
of 1896; In which struggle their weight
and influence was as Importaut as a
straight driDk of bourbon would be to
the genet al mas of liquid if it were
poured into the sea.
The occasion for onr sympathy Is that
the Republican party needs these or any
other recruits, while the Democratic army
doos not require or want them, and would
not have them, in their present unregen
er&te condition, At any price. But they
tre ashamed to follow out the logic of
their position. They have an inherent, and
largely hereditary, distaste for the label
'Republican," while they are not per
mitted to wear the regular union label
"Democrat.'5 Hence they are bojeotted
and fraudulent goods, obnoxious equally
to all legitimate political organizations.
There is vldence that these Ohio gold
dinner party people fancy they can do
something' this yeaT. If noMilng else, they
hope that their show of modality will Im
press one or other of the genuine po
litical parties with an idea of their im
portance, and so, either open the way to
a return to the Democratic crib, or raise
thecaph value of their Republican "cuca
Uou." Thoy are likely to be dlBappo'nted
In both directions. In addition to that,
they have made a serious mistake in the
preparation of their convention. They will
allow a delegate for each 1,000 votestiast
for Cleveland in Ohio In 1892. That
would necessitate a membership of 4.04 in
the convention. Unless they can hire some
Republicans to act the part, and help them
out, it msj be considered doubtful if
they can find enough voters of their
peculiar kind to make a quorum.
Not a Slow Jones.
The gunboat Helena must have been too
late or too slow, or something. The ocean
tug Alexander Jones, which veel has
teen under feureillance of the Spanish
American naal and revenue authorities at
"Wilmington, N. C, was searched at the In
stance of Mr dc Hale de Lome, but, as
nothing ol a filibustering nnture was found
on her, was allowed to stuain away.
The Jones appears to have taken full ad
vantage of the permission extended, and.
sometime later, accidentally to have hailed
a large sc'ioouer rrom Knight's Key, Fla.,
out at sea The schooner happened, it is
said, to be loaded with arms and ammuni
tion for Gen. Gomez; and, further, it is
alleged trat the cargo was transferred
to the steamer, and, some hours after
ward, landed near Matanzas.
Those riorida keys, connUtuting a laby
rinthine archipelago quite impossible to
police, have become the pillars of the Cu

A Harper on Heed Instrument.
Very seldom is it our privilege to agree
with the organ of gold and bonds of wntch
Mr. Carl Scliurz is the simian attachment;
but a few current editorial remarks In
Harper's Weekly on the subject of tho
suppression of the people's House of Rop
resentatles by Thomas Brackett Reed,
of Maine, seem to indicate that the na
tional and institutional dangers of tho
Fpcaker's violations of the House rules
and of the Constitution are sufficiently
apparent to cause alarm, even among
influences so devoted to the material good
of the Republican party, and of its friends,
the syndicates, trusts, and monopolies,
that they find it diffioult to discover any
thing wrong in whatever may be done
or dared to further It; and, accordingly,
It Is both surprising and pleasant to find
ourselves for once In agreement. The

The la-jt sentence In the extract above
quoted seems to crry a covert shot at
the Autocrat, -which we muBt pass by
in silence. It is open' to the suspicion
of Indicating tl3t, at some time, Mr. Reed
must have done something to Mr. Schurz.
We will not call names. We never do,
unless on occasions when it manifestly is
necessary to bring some lost public sheep
back to a sense of propriety or duty.
Aside from that we must beg to insist
that the Autocrat is anything but a foo
If he had been one, in the ordinary sons e,
he never could have accomplished what
he has against the principles of constitu
tional goernment and the rights of the
people As to the other terra, we leavu
him to Harper's and his friend Schurz.
He certainly has contemned and defied the
Constitution, which he took oath to sup
port, and ho has suppressed free speech
in the popular branch of the national
legislature; but, personally, what he should
be -denondnate.l, because of these things,
is another and a delicate matter.
Everyliodj knows Abbury Tark; and
every acquaintance of Asbury PaTk knows
James A.Bradley. Some people have fun at
Asbury I'aik. Pounder Bradley is one
of them. A recent method of his for
having fun is the little lion safe on the
pier. On the sides of tlds safe are painted
conundrums of a religious nature, and
each one of them is a quciy whether it
Is "sare" to uo this, that or the other
thing. That is why the safe "vas chosen
as a medium for the conundrums instead
of a board walk, or a board fence, or a
For some inscrutable reason the pun
seems to be the only form of wit per
missible to ecme "unco guid" people. Au
thorities on literature say that the puu
Is the lowest form of -wit, the most easily
made, the mort exasperating, the most in
excusable. The bad pun is an atrocity
perpetrated by the mentally incapable.
But for some reason or other the only sort
of witticism which is allowable at church
conferences, missionary meetings and Ad
bury Park places of a certain grade is a
very mild form of pnn.or possibly conun
drum. Not long ago in a Sunday school
leaflet appeared the directions:
Cut two hearts out of pnner, stick them
together with mucilage and show them to
the class; explain that the hearts cannot
be separated; so stick to God.
Founder Bradley" explains that the Ten
Commandments should be put away "safe"
in the memory. He also inquires, "Is the
yo ang man Absalom safe?" What on earth
the young man Absalom has to do with a
bathing beach is not easily explained. The
young man Absalom lost his life because
hit hair was so long that it caught on the
hmb of n. tree, and It is '"sare" to say
that nobody is likely to- meet with pre
cisely that accident while in swimming.
It Asbury were a football resort it mightbe
different. But perhaps this ia a barber
shop advertisement in disguise. Possibly
the bather is warned against drowning
maidens who may want to grab him by the
hair if he does not liave it shingled. It
might be thought that curiosity on this sub
ject would lead the capual passer-by at
least to find out who ALsalom was, but
as people seldom carry their Bibles with
them on cummer vacations, and as the
average summer youth wouldnotknow, any
way, whether Absalom was a character in
First Samuel, In Shakespeare, or in .one of
Hoyt's farces, theonly logical way tojnake
this Idea of value would be to chain nwater
proor edition of the Bible to the safe and
open It at the proper place.
Now, there Is no earthly reason why
Imbecilities like this should be perpetrated
iu the name of religion. The triumphant
intcrJption on the safe cover declares that
nobody can get the conundrums out of his
mind. The same is true of Blats Soap
and Tavone Prescription advertisements,
but it is a question whether most people
will be more benefited by clear, clean,
fragrant memory or the ocean just as God
made it without any advertising, religious
or otherwise, mixed np with the memory.
A dispatch printed in the New York Sun
states that an Orange hatter ate a gieat
m"ny green apples, inconsequence ol which
he died or cholera morbus. In these days
of u'idefcpreadlnvcstigation and much med

ask whether or not a green apple hatter
who should surfeit himself with oranges
would be liable to die of the jaundice?
The subject is a fruitful one for thefaeulty.

TWO NAMED FOR ONE PLACE.
Fociilinr Dilemma Confronting the
Interior Department Offlclula.
It fomethnes happens that tho wrong
man is nominated tor an office through
error, but the Interior Department is Just
now wrestling with a problem that is
without precedent in the history of the
country. Two men have actually beey,
nominated and confirmed us United States
commissioner at St. Michael, Alaska,
and are now on their way to that port.
What the outcome will be when they begin
to crow official swords Is a question the
department cannot answer, and how to
correct the mistake that has been made
is a problem far moie difficult of solution.
The last sundry civil act authorized the
appointment of additional commissioners
for Alaska and under that act, on the
recommendation of Senator "Wilson, Wil
liam J. Jones, or!Port Townscnd, Wash.,
was named for St.'Michael und confirmed,
July 22. Meanwhile Mr. Jones changed
his mind and "wired his Senator that he
he did not want the place and would re
sign. The department waB notified and,
the session belug.n its last throes and
haste being nect-ssarj, L. B. Shepherd,
wa ruminated for the same place and con
firmed. Mr. Jones' case shows how easy It la
for the human mind to fluctuate. The
gilded tales fiom4.ie Klondlko rields rilled
him with a zenl to serve Uncle Sam In
that northern cpuntry, and Mr. Jones Im
mediately reconsidered his determination
to resign, but said nothing about it to
tho man who hnd secured his appoint
ment. The department patiently awaited
the arrival or his leslgnatlon, Intending to
place it on file and close the Incident. In
due course o' time Mr. Jones' communica
tion came to hand, but, instead of theres
lgnation.it proved to be his bond and his
oath of office, with the statement that he
had gone to his pobtoT duty.
Mr Shepherd had lost no time in filing
his bond and making tho start for St.
Michael. Both men are on the way there.
The rtiMnnceis great, and it will be some
weeks before the department understands
the exact status of al fairs.
When Senator Wilson notified the de
partment and the President thut Mr. Jones
had resigned nnd his resignation was on
the way to Washington, be acted in good
faith and on the dispatch of Mr. Jones
to him, hut the failure of that gentleman
to do so, he said, doos not relieve the
embarrassment In which the department
now rinds itsrir. At the department It
was stated jestcrday that the second com
missioner was appointed in such apparent
haste because it was believed that uch an
orficlal. on account or the growing Im
portance or St. Michael, should be sent
there at the earliest possible moment. It
was for this raj,on that the communica
tion from Mr. Jones was not waited for.
The department will probably hold thut
Mr. JoneB shall be taken at his word and
that he must tender hl resignation. It will
take some weeks, however, ror the depart
ment to reach Mr. Jones and convey to
him tho of ftrial intimation that hissprvces
at St. Michael will not be longer needed.
When Mr. Jones gels his yellow envelope
he will be conveniently located to begin
hlH search for the yellow metal.

TVAXTS TO BE GOVERNOR.
Congressman Charles W. Stone Is
Ambitious for the Honor.
Harrisburg, Pa., Aug. 6., There is at
last one avowed candidate for governor
in Pennsylvania, and his name is Charles
W. Stone, the popular representative of
the Warren district in Congress. He was
in Harrisburg today, and let it be under
stood that he will be in the field.
Stone occupies a position with respect
to factional lines in the party which may
be of greac importance to his candidacy.
Whilo not an uncompromising Quay man
he is i.oe a rabid opponent of the Beaver
chieftain. His friends thlhk he is-probably
the one man of the several mentioned for
the office of governor who would be
acceptable to both factions of the party.
His prominence In Congress has given him
.more than a State reputation, and his
friends believe that he would be an ex
ceedingly available selection for the head
of tne ticket next year.
