Dollar "Wheat In Sight.
In New York on Thursday wheat touched
the pgdnl of 90 3-4 cents a bushel on the

Mr. MoKmley has done it with his little

prophets of prosperity. Jhey are more
than fortunate In the fact that -wheat crops
are so short in Argentina, Russia, India,
Ilungary and Italy, that there will be aa
unusual tlemand for American -wheat thin
The praximate consequence Is, that our

conditions which only arise from the tem-
prary misfortunes of their neighbors. Tha
producf-ons of competing countries will
revive as:aia, and very likely next year.
Then the silver basis crops of South
America and India again will flood the
European markets, and shot out our agri
cultural interest Prices this year will bo
apt to result in a vast Increanc of acreage
in America, far the ensuing season, and,
while Che pxesut is urigh for the wheat
farmer, he must nat delude himself into
the belief that the parted of fat things is
to be always.
Eeally, there is something sad In the
consideration that, whoever benefits In
these sordid and grinding days, somebody
else must suffer for it. It is quite legiti
mate aad prober that our farmers bliould
lwwc the advantage of the world's crop
failures; but if they are good meu they
will take it with some tliought of the
Buffering that oomos to other peoples
through the failure of their harvests. In
;ulte another direction, it is painful to
know that the vast Wealth pouring into
tho coffers of trusts and monopolies is
at the expense of the whole citizenship

It Is more than encouraging to reflect
Jin connection with the two notable aac6i
nations which have marked the Spanish
Ouban troubles since the revolution r.e
gan, that the Cubans, are guiltless of
crimes of that kind.
Maces was assassinated by the orders
of Weyler, who watbe oreaturof Cano

Italian anarchist. Throughout tho Cuban
war, and while the Spaniard r-jgularly
have been murdering honorable yrltonera
-of war, and outraging and buUhcrlng in
nocent women and gjrhs, the gallant pa
triots of the hJar.a have scorned To re
sort to savage retaliation. They aave re
leased Spanish prisoners, and, whre euch
unfortunates have been ill cr wounded,
they have nursed them tenderly to health
cgain and restored them to their friends.
' History will accord to the gener lis and
soldiers of the Cuban Republic the glory
of having been unlfcrralyhuiua,ie .to their

One ot the things in which the parks of
Germany are said to be a refreshing con
trast to our own is la their neatness. It
1e related by admiring travelers that
German children are ail trained not to
scatter peanut shells, and tin cans, and
paper bags, and exploded balloons, and
remnants ot firecrackers on the pretty
green grass. When a Gorman family goes
for a picnic the debris is all carefully
gatherpd up and put back In the luncheon
basket to be thrown away at the proper
Possibly one reason why we are not
like Germany lies in this very carefulness
of the Toterfand. After having a path
marked out for one's every footstep It is
refreshing to come to a place where one
can. rac? through the fields and climb the
fences Thus it comes to pass that the
iyidrea of Immigrants are often ultra
JLrnn46c youag Americans in the matter
hBf fflEuberant freedom. All the same, it
would be a. gcod thlpg If we could get rid
of this rubbish in our parks, and this rub
bish In our sentiments and cur laws as
Well. If ugns nretuek up all over places
of puWIu amuicment, warning pleasure
seekers to keep orf the grass, and not
to pick flowers, and to refrain from throw
ing thlngH on the ground, It takes away
from the bcrrce of personal liberty and
rouses a perverse desire to tear down
the board and break the rule. It torno-tiirw-i
produces this effect even in thcbo
naturally inclined to behave themsclve3.
ThP only really effective way to prevent
this sort oi UUng is through the aesthetic
hide of human nature, "Let the children
be taught that It Is ill-bred and vulgar
to litter puhUc places with rubbish and
obstruct the atmosphere with bad tobacco
and loud talk, and these habita will be
corrected twice as quickly aa they can bo
There t. a disposition, even among those
who think they know how to Influence
the poor, to laugh at attempts to be "gen
tlemen" end '"ladies," and dress like tho
rich and wll-bred, and treat each other
with the ceremony u&ed by the more cul
tured classes They teem to think that
a fchop girl on ?3 a -week has no busi
ness to want to wear a pretty and fash
ionable gown or to grasp at the beauties
and refinements of life alxive her, unless
her instinct is true enough and her ex
perience large enough to enable her to do
as they would do In her place. Again and
again, it has bean tried, this plan of
making the poor live like the poor, econom
ically, plainly, without any attempt to
rise beyond their station, and the experi
ment has failed. Again and again have

plain and wholesome food in the .slums
of tin rill anl have fai.fd. Int.
when a woman of tact went there and
showed a dozen poor woman how to mnkd
a plain and wholesome soup, explulnlng
at the same time that she had partaken
of that wiup at the house of u governor,
and that tt wat. his favorite dish, she had
twenty requests for the reclpo.
It seems to be a hard thing for the
rich to undcistand thaS one of thedearest
things In life Is self-respect, and that when
yon say to a poor man that he has no right
to reach out Tor things above his slation
you are telling him tbat be lias no right
to the feelings and aspirations of a rich
man. These failings may workoutln pecul

We are glad to observe that the national
authorities have waked up at last to tho
international dangerb involved In the ap
proaching .situation on the upper Yukon
River in Alaska. Probably they would have
teen the peril. and earlier prepared to meet
it, but it happened, unfortunately,. that the
Klondike craze developed just as the Con
gress adjourned, and as the Administration
was preparing to suspend active butlness
and tettle down on the shores of Lake
Cbamplaln for the summer. We thought
then that It was a grave mistake to cancel
iheordsrs which had been Issued, providing
! for the dispatch of a regimentot regulars to
the vicinity of the gold fields, and we have
not changed that opinion; but, in view of
the fact that pursuit of such an enterprise,
possibly prolitlcof executive correspondence
with, and explanations to, Great Britain,
might have compelled the President to re
main In his capital, perhaps nothing nior
should be said about It.
Now, however, it is satisfactory to note
that the Treasury Department has taken
alarm,, and has Invoked the aid of Its
brother, the Department of Stats, to pro
test against the "nefarious" cxactlonand
cctoTtions proposed by the Canadian au
thoiitics agalnbt American miners who are
flocking to the gold field. Itla announced
that our foreign office will mildly and
courteously suggest to Sir Julfan Paunce

to apply a cotk to the provincials In

It Is about time that something were
done. It Is bad enough for thousands ot
American adventurers to be told that they
are to bo robbed and swindled with il
legal and rascally duties, on what they are
taking Into that Inhospitable territory
to sustain life during a, Mghttul polar
winter. It is worae that they shonld know
they mutt meet a force ot Canadian mount-
ed polica with two rapid-fire guns, charged
with the perpetration of the intended out
rages. 16 Is still worse to reflect that our
hardy citizens are to be left to tlieir own
physical resources, to enconntr such
abuses and trials. They are able ana
willing enough to dolt. What the Govern
ment does not accomplish for their Te
ller, through diplomacy, and, perhaps, the
threat of retaliation, the bold prospectors
and miners will attend to on their own
account;, with their Winchesters
The chances are that they -will not have

"I don't mind giving you my opinion
of tho T.nd!ana.?rlBnld Admiral Eokine,
"yet I can speak only from a cursory
examination: of the ship. I had not tho
time nor was there opportunity for a
thorough investigation. But Ihexo Is
no doubt about it. that the Indiana Is a
most formidable aud a very heavily uimored

battleship in every way. As a sailor I
would Uc, IoAth to express an opinion of
her valuo unless I had seen the ship atsoa.
The value oC a battleship ot the Indiana's
