Thp 1indnn Times amtolincM that
Mr. Whltney'a vrh fot an Internm

not lie gratified, nf i-ottwe tint, if the
Khgllah eyndlcate, of thlch th flme
hna niwayg hertl the orffan. can pre
vent. ttat It Is dellclou to hear tti Tlmw
declare that neither the lhrtAlMon
act tior th Sherman act did th wkhI
expected of them. The ftCli wW not
free coinage acta, hut only made dollar
from punhaeil bullion the nntt of
value imd been deatroyed and tttvur a
a mincy metal vaa not reatored by
either act. The dollar coined tm
and are legal tender, but the
runrllon of xllver as prtmary money
wae not restored Ijeyond the monthly
limit. They made Mlver a commodity
only. Then again, both were compro
mines with n principle, dictated by ihe
money power to defeat the full restora
tion of silver as n money tuetnl. In fact.
It is well known that the Sherman act
was a device to prevent the paswaRe of
ii free coinage bill, which it was known,
bv Ihe originators of the measure, that
President ttarrison would sign. The
fnct Is now genernlly understood that
Harrison, whtle not favoring free coin
ngc himself, would, under the pledge of
the Minneapolis platform, have signed
It will be remembered that a free
rolnage bill 1iad passed the senate nnd
was pending In the bouse, and that at
the last moment the Shennun bill was
introduced as a compromise giving
4,000,000 ounces a month to coinage.
But It did not restore sliver to Its equal
nine with aold. We do not believe tho
authors of the Sherman bill will deny
the fact we stale that its Inspiration
Was to prevent a free coinage bill goltir
to the president nd which they knew
he would sign.
And now comes the London Times
under the stress of th silver revival,
the infusion of a bimetallic force Into
both the new parliament and cabinet,
and Issues Its ukase that all Interna
tional talk must stop. It gives the
usual reason that It is only productive
t.f "mlsrhlef.' AH tho encouragement
the Times can stve us is that it expects
tho good crops of America and the bad
harvests in England will, for the cotn
irg year, prevent the drain of Sold from
America. It too very blandly informs
vs that tve have more money now
than we need, but if we are
;a:i?nt and wait Mil our popu
tten increases we may get the
right supply. And there are people wHh
..--ramon school advantages who will ac-cr-t

wisdom because It is English, you

of unimproved roaduny, from which
mud and dirt will constantly be carried
to the pavement, to be ground into dust
or be removed at the city's ppcnp.
And s-stematlt? Improvement means
something more than iempornty make
shift. The essence of the proiwsltlon is
to do away with the evpenslve folly of
past yenr. and to Inaugurate n system
that will telleve the progressive prop
erty owner from the necessity of re
peated taxation for changes and renew
al", nnd at Ihe same time protect the
city at large from the enormous cost of
repairs, consequent upon the use ot out-of-date
materials. The enterprising,
puhllc plrlted nnd progressive properly
owner has right which should lie pro
tected by the otnctal vlinsc duty It ts
to carry out improvements.
It is the Individual who holds property
as a permanent investment whose
wishes should be conulted In the matter
of street improvements before tho-e of
any other. Especially should the owner
of Improved property, and those who
keep their holdings for the purpose of
improvement, have n voice in the cnfce
of all contests as to material.
Some people find a hand) use for the
word confiscation, whenever a project is
on foot for the Improvement of streets
where they have property Interests.
There is no such thing ns confiscation
In the plan advocated by the Journal.
Good paving on the downtown thor
oughfares, known as business streets. Is
demanded by every public Interest. No
property owner should stand In the way
of making these Improvements of a per
It is the Journal's proposition that
these Improvements be extended, in
permanent form, as rapidly as public
interests demand, without overburden
ing property owers.
We are gratified to find that with the
exception of & few indtv iduals. who have
personal Interests at stake, we have th
hearty support of the entire community
In the policy outlined.
The board of public works has it In
their power to discourage a continuance
of the patchwork plan, and if they will
but use t.ielr influence in that direction
we will soon have street Improvement.
put on a basis that will be a standing
credit to the citv. with an enormous
saving to the owners of property.
It I'.VK-n.tY K.XfUK'IONS.
The Commercial Club will accomplish
a great deal for this city, as well as the
thousands of visitors who come here
every week, if it can induce the rail
roads to establish a week-day excursion
system. The advantages which will ac
crue to all concerned by the adoption of
such a system are self-evident, and it
would be Idle to recapitulate them.
Every reason which can be given for
anybody coming to Kansas City at all
are especially applicable to a week-day
trip. When it is remembered that these
excursions are very few in number from
any given section of the territory adja
cent to Kansas City, there Is absolutely
no force in the objection that the peo
ple would be too busy to come on any
other day than Sunday. People are
pretty busy this year, but they are not
so busy that they cannot spare at least
one day in the uionth to transact busi
ness "here which cannot be attended to
on Sunday. There i no question but
that thousands of people who have no
scruples against Sunday excursion, stay
away simply because thoy cannot trans
net any businuss that day. Then there
are the thousands of conscientious peo
ple who do nut believe In spending Sun
day on an excursion. From these two
classes the number of those who would
stay away because they are too busy
would be more thnn offset.
Hualness and pleasure can be most
conveniently combined on week - day
triiis. The attractions at the parks are
practically the same during the week as
on Sunday. In addition there Is a multi
plicity of other attractions which are not
available on Sunday. It is the fushlon
in some quartets to "take a shot" at
Kansas City on every occawlnn possible,
but the people do not share these views.
There are thousands of people who want
to transact business hue, and if the
Commercial Club eitn enable them to
do so it will be woiklne for the best In
terests of nil concerned.

Th Hon. John U, Carlisle, of Ken
tucky, doth protest too much. With
him it Is not n costs of rather being
right than president, as It was with
that other Kent within. It Is simply o
case of fox and grapes. When ii re

Carlisle would hav to abandon his ptes
identiai aspirations if he got the pltico
on tho supreme bench made vat ant by
tho death of Justice Jackson, Mr. Car
lisle got testy. He declared he had no
presidential aspirations, and that "a
man'i word ought to count for some
thing." Yes. it ought. John. Some
men's word does count for n good deal,

Wilson, the new president of the Grand

Majestic this afternoon. His arrival has

Iliej- Occupy tho Attention of tlio Western
Chicago, 111., Aug. 14. The Western roads
put in all of to-day working on their pro
posed agreement on hat vest excurslons.but
It was not quite as much of an agreement
as it was expected to turn out. When a
vote was taken late In the day on tho ad
visability of adopting the ccitltlcate plan
or return tickets proposed by the commit
tee which has tor two days ben working
on the matter, thtee of the lines repre
sented declared that they weie not pre
pared to vote at to-dav"s session, as the
man present did not have full authority
from the executive road olllcials of his line
to east a vote. Thl caused a delay, and
the whole thing went ovei till to-morrow,
when It Is thought that all of the lines will
be ready to cast their votes. No matter
what the outcome of this meeting will be,
It Is certain that all the toads will run ex
cursions. The Illinois Central has no In
tention of abandoning Its announced ex
cursions, and the Burlington has declated
flatly that It will run seteral excursions
along its line in Nebraska, and with the
example of these two lints before them, all
the other lines nie not likely to krep their
hands off the business. The best thing the
lines as a whole can hope for Is to leach
ome agreement on the manner In which
the excursions shall be run. If they fail
to do this, there Is no telling how deep the
rates all over the territory of the Western
Passenger Association lines may bo cut.
