It seems to be settled that the Mitchell

The difference will not amouut to a

Ax organization of the New York

policies and candidates arbitrarily. Per
haps its wings should be clipped, but
this could be done without crippling or
destroying its influence for good upon
the voters. The Iroquois club aud the
Country Democracy in Chicago work in

Tin: sensational story that comes from
Kansas of a plot to kidnap the presi

her for ransom, is probably the creation
nf the brain of some sensation-monger

mention of such a thing moy create in
the mind of soina crank the desire to
commit the crime. There are thousands
of uuconfined lunatics, and especially
in Kansas, who are capable of under
taking such a deed if they thought there
were any chance of success, and the
president will be justified In taking all
necessary precautions to prevent it.
And, if it should be attempted, the mis

Tammany Ham. takes the right view
of the tariff situation. At the meeting
of the general committee on Thursday
night a resolution was adopted unani
mously declaring that "the imperative
duty of the national legislature is to
afford without delay all possible relief
to the vast and increasing number who.
willing to work, are denied employment
by reason of the hazardous conditions
bow affecting the investment of capital
in and the prosecution of business en
terprises." These are words of wisdom
well and timely spoken. Any unneces
sary delay in settling the question of
tariff taxation will make the party re
sponsible for it guilty of aiming a blow
at every manufacturer, business man
an 1 mechanic in the country. No dila
tory tactics should be permitted by the
friends of the measure, whatever the
excuse. Two weeks is ample time for
the discussion of all the issues involved.
It should be in the hands of the senate
by the middle of January, and before
the president for his signature by the
first day of February.
ARRESTKD THU WRONG MAN.
The arrest of Supt. Hoskins, of the
city railway company, for not vestibul
ing the electric cars was a mistake.
There is just one man who is respon
sible for a non-compliance with the law,
and his name is Thomas Lowry. If any
arrest was to be made, he was the mar
who should have been captured.
Mr. lloskins does not hold a positiou
which makes him responsible for non
vestibuling. in fact, he could not incur
the expense necessary to comply with
the law, except by Mr. Lovvry's sanc
There certainly should be some move
made to enforce the law, though we
question whether any one needs to be
arrested to compel action. The street
oar compauy have willfully disregarded
the law until we are in the midst
of winter, and it will be soring before
the work can be completed. It is not
probable tiiat the company intended to
pay any attention to the la»v until the
matter was agitated. As is too often
tne case with large corporations, they
relied on defying the law, aucl forcing
it to be a dead letter.
Whatever legal remedy, by arrest or
otherwise, can be applied to Mr. Lowry
should be done without delay, and an
endeavor made to teach hiir. that laws
are enacted to be obeyed.
TOM KEKD'S UIJPLiY.
It is fair to presume that the minority
report of the ways and means commit
tee is written by Mr. Reed, the senior
member of the minority. It is not only
that the paper bears his unmistakable
earmarks, but the possibilities of '96, on
which Mr. Reed has an ever-watchful
and anxious eye, would prompt him to
"sound the keynote" of that campaign
and direct the lines of preparation.
The whole tenor of the paper is criti
cal.often hypercritical. This is.perhaps,
unavoidable.as the sole position left the
party which Mr. Reed hopes to lead:
the rear guard, whose captain he would
be, is now confined to an obstinate in
sistence on the riuhtfulness and good
policy of taxinz imports, not for rev
enue, but that domestic ma&ers may
make greater gains "In order that they
may be able, " etc., etc. Having no
new policy to ur^e. it is driven either to
silence of captious opposition.
But criticism, to be of any value, to
command any attention or to compel a
revision or reversal of judgment, must
display an accurate knowledge of fact.
a desire to present facts only, and
an intelligent application of facts in the
reasoning based on them. It fails to
command respect or attention, or to de
serve anything but derision, if instead
of fact it bases itself on fiction so trans
parent as to cross the line which divides
tlie creations of the imagination from
those of downright and conscious fal
This Mr. Reed does in his opening
sentences, when he condemns the bill of
the majority because by it "the larger
part of the burden of taxation is trans
ferred from foreigners and brought to
our own citizens." It does little credit
to Mr. Reed's candor, and iess to his re
gard for the intelligence of the people
whom he addresses, that he can thus
soberly, in a state paper, iepeat a state
ment so glaringly absurd and false that
it deceives no one now. The declaration
that "the foreigner pays the tax" is ex
cusable in Mr. McKinley, whose imagi
nation rides his reason bareback and un
bridled; but it is accountable for in Mr.
Reed's mouth only because he permits
his ambition and his partisanry to ride
his reason as they will. lie knows bet
As far as the report is directed to the
concessions made to the manufactures
in its protective features, we must ad
mit the justness of the criticism. The
majority of the committee admitted it
in advance, and sought to avoid its force
by avowing an unwillingness to with
draw entirely and at once the support
which has been mistakenly given manu
factures, and on which it assumes they
still rely. With this we have no sym
pathy, nor do we believe it necessary.
It is a compromise not of methods, but
of principle, which should never be
compromised. Lowell sagely says that
"compromise makes a good umbrella,
but a- poor roof; that it is a temporary
expedient, often wise in party politics,
almost sure to bo uuwise in statesman
That a full and complete redemption
of the pledge of '92 is not possible at
this time— and we know the views of the
chairman of the ways and means weil
enouzh to know that he is essaying all
that he knows he can now accomplish,
and that it is far short of what he would
do— is the most conclusive evidence of
the demoralizing effect of protection on
character, and of how it transmutes un
selfishness, manly independence and
self-dependence and broad patriotism
into greed, selfishness, and that narrow
localism which sinks the nation in the
native hog trough. Men who call them
selves Democrats, who may believe
they are such, who were elected as such
on the Chicago platform, declare they
will oppose a bill because it reduces the
burden of taxation which brings un
oarned increment to some petty indus
try which flourishes iv their districts.
When legislation produces such results
it is time for all patriotic men who see
the danser of it to tho nation to demand
the complete and speedy excision ot the
baleful policy which breeds it.
But Mr. Keed will have to pardon the
couutry if it looks to see him wink at
his fellow-augurs as he solemnly be
wails the disastrous effect tho Wilson
bill will entail on the country. We can
well believe that if Mr. Keed really be
lieved this he would sit silent in his
seat, aiding, if anything, the passage of
a bill so sure to overthrow the party
that enacts it and so surely restore him
and his party to power, if he be a
prophet. We apprehand, however, that
under all of this lugubrious foreboding
there is an uueasy sense in Mr. Heed's
mind that the bill will defend and jus
tify itself to the good will of the coun
try when in operation.
Ob' DOUBTFUJU PROPRIETY.
The bill introduced into the senate on
Thursday by Senator Mitchell, of Ore
gon, for the consolidation of the state of
Nevada with the soon-to-be state of
Utah has much to recommend it to pub
lic favor. Nevada, with a population of
little more than forty thousand, and
which is constantly decreasing, has a
representation in congress altogether
out of proportion to either her popula
tion, wealth or natural resources. Its
only products of any consequence are
silver, sage hens and crank statesmen.
The silver is useful in its way; the
other two are not.
But whatever the propriety or necea -
THE SAINT r&TJL DAILY GLOBE SATURDAY MOIOTNGr, DECEMBER 23, ]893.
sity of consolidating the two states may
be, the power to do so is open to ques
tion. The congress is empowered to
create new states out of the territories,
and as a war measure it assumed the
power to create a new state out of the
territory of old Virginia. But neither the
constitution nor the laws give to it the
authority to deprive any community of
the powers of statehood after it has once
been granted and lias exercised them.
We have never been forced to consider
such a case, and good constitutional
lawyers are of the opinion that the
power to create uew states does not
carry with it the power to consolidate
old ones without the consent of the peo
ple therein residing.
But even if the authority to consoli
date Is conceded, the plan will arouse
much opposition. The population of
tne two states is reasonably homoge
neous. Mining is the chief industry in
both, and the miners' characteristics
predominate. But there are many am
bitious politicians in both communities.
Those of Nevada have the present ad
vantage of possession of the senatorial
seats. They are men of unbounded
wealth, and can in the future, as they
have done in the past, purchase the
legislatures as they would a drove of
cattle. They will not surrender the ad
vantage they now hold without ades
perate struggle, and the result, in all
probability, wouid be that, while the
representative might be chosen from
the present territory of Utah, both of
the senators would be selected from the
present state of Nevada. This would.
Of course, uive the rotten borough of
Nevada an undue influence and prom
inence in conaress, and lead to discon
tent, if not rebellion, in Utah, containing
six times the population and four times
the territory of the old state.
It may be that Nevada will improve
somewhat within the next quarter of a
century. Although her mines are being
exhausted, irrigation is improving her
arid plains, and agriculture and stock
raising may in time be profitable. As
she is already invested with statehood,
perhaps it would be as well to permit
her to remain as 3he is. Her influence
is on the wane, and she may soon be
powerless for harm, as she has ever
been for good. It would be somewhat
of an injustice to load the new state of
Utah with such an incubus, and her
people would doubtless protest against
statehood granted uuder such condi
Congress will do well to consider the
prooosition of the Oregon senator well
before approving of it. Even though
its legality may be demonstrated, its
expediency is open to question.
The American Screw company is
another of the robber gang that is try
ing to bulldoze congress into letting its
stealing alone by threatening a cut in
wages. And yet this is the same com
pany which, Joseph Chamberlain says,
paid his company a large bonus, said to
be $50,0.)0 a year.to keep out of our mar
kets with its screws until it found an
easier way in a prohibitive tax on them.
GIVE HAWAII A REPUBLIC.
It may well be doubted if the people
of the Hawaiian islands are qualified,
either by nature or education, for self
government. They are scarcely re
moved from a condition of barbarism—
but two or three generations from can
nibalism. They are an indolent race, as
are other peoples in the semi-tropics.
They lack both the moral and intel
lectual stamina of the Caucasian, and,
beintt prone to vice, seem to be rapidly
succumbing to diseases resultant from
their indulgences. The Kanakas, like
the native Indians of North America,
are dying off, and ere many years will
follow the Aztecs and become extinct.
They are unused to the new civilization
that has been forced upon them, and no
down before it as the grass does be
fore the prairie fire.
It is manifest to every one who has
investigated the subject that the-Cau
casian race must ultimately supplant
the Kanaka on the Hawaiian islands. It
may be that the existing crisis in the
affairs of the kingdom may greatly
hasten the footsteps of destiuy. In ihe
light of present advices the affairs of
the country are in a hopeless muddle.
The monarchy has the support of the
native population, but is impotent
against the foreign influence, and, even
if restored by force of arms, could not
long sustain itself. It lias neither the
respect nor the confidence of the for
eigners, who would disregard its au
thority with impunity. If the United
States government should undertake to
sustain it, a military and naval force
would have to be maintained there, an
undertaking that would be impractica
ble. We cannot afford to permit the
kingdom to pass under the control of
Great Britain or Germany. Such a
change in its status would be a constant
menace to our government. The only
course remaining is to permit or encour
age the establishment of a republic on
the ruins of the monarchy.
But such a republic would necessarily
be one only in name. The dominating
races would control its every depart
ment; the natives would be practically
disfranchised and ignored. Even if
they cared enough to seek to vote, they
could be easily Influenced, for they are
weak and prone to barter their iulluence
for some present and tangible ad van
tage. They cannot understand the be n
elits or the duties of citizenship; it is
doubtful if they can ever learn them,
auy more than they can learn industry
or chastity. They are too shiftless and
indifferent of the future to care for it.
A monarchy, mild and Indulgent in
form, would be the best for the natives.
It would please them most by relieving
them of all responsibility tor the gov
ernment. But the queen, having re
fused the offer of restoration to the
throne, has destroyed hope for the
monarchy. A republic is the only re
course. But it should be a republic in
fact, as well as in name. The existing
provisional government is not republi
can iv any respect. It is simply a band
of conspirators organized for purposes
of plunder and power. It has the sanc
tion of neither the native nor the for
eign inhabitants. It is self-constituted,
autocratic, iudefensible from every
point of view. It should have no lot or
part in the adjustment of the affairs of
the people, for it is inherently traitor
Probably the easiest and the best plan
for our government to adopt would be
to order a plebiscite of the people of the
islands, and, if a republic were favored,
to assist in establishing it on a basis
that should secure to every person his
right to a voice in the administration
of affairs. If ho shall hereafter neglect
to enforce that right, the fault will be
his own. But a satisfactory and fair
constitution having been adopted, and
the first officers havine been chosen
under the supervision of our govern
ment, the supervision should be with
drawn, and the responsibility should
cease. In all contingencies, however,
we should guard agaiust the interfer
ence of European nations in the affairs
of the islands. If they shall recognize
any foreign power as their "guide,
philosopher and friend," that power
must be the United States; for our in
terests in the islands, commercial and
political, are too important to be en
As the queen will not accept the
throne of which she was wrongfully
deprived through the acts of an official
of the United States, the people of the
islands should be assured of a repub
lican form of government, but the cabal
that now assumes to be the governing
power should be compelled to step
down and out.
The postmaster at Indianapolis is an

Excellent Performance of "Ricb
It was unpleasant to note that Mr.
Whiteside's production of "Richelieu"
was greeted by a small house at the
Metropolitan last night. But to those
who failed to attend the performance,
it can be said that the loss Is their own.
Mr. Whiteside is more satisfactory all
the way through in his Richelieu than
in his Jlamlet, which is rather unac
countable, since his make-up in Rich
elieu scarcely conceals his youth and
immaturity; still, he is very strong.
His voice is especially eood, aud
he uses it with excellent skill.
His personality is too buoyaut to en
able him to assume the role of the old
cardinal to as ureat perfection as. we
are bound to feel, he will with a few
more years' experience. His expression
is very fine, and in this part it is pleas
ing to note that he does not rant. It is
only in facial expression that his play
luji is defective; and as that is attrib
utable to his youth, it seems almost a
crime to find fault with an actor on that
score. He plays the part weil through
out, rising to the great occasions with
force; and while one is conscious
throughout that a very young man is
essayiug the part, one id pleased with
the young man's interpretation of it.
Mr. Whiteside does net cay sufficient
attention to the dressing of his play, and
this detracts from the perfection of tlie
whole. His stage manager needs coach

Christmas matinee at the MetroDolitan

Charles Frohman's company from the

successful American play, "The Girl I
Left Behind Me."
This play is everywhere spoken of R3
being one of the most intensely inter
esting plays known in the annals of the
American stage, and comes to us with a
record of success that is remarkable.
All the scenic environments and sur
roundings which accompanied the New
York and Chicapo productions, which
lasted 500 nights, will be seen here.
The seat sale is now in progress, and
unless all signs fail the engagement
will be one of the most brilliant of the

"Ta<n Kauvar" will be seen for the
final times at the Grand this afternoon
and tonight. The performance given
by the present cast of this successful
play his been satisfactory in every re
spect and well worthy of the liberal
patronace that has been accorded it,
aud although the week before Christ
mas is always looked upon Dy managers
of places of amusement as the worst
in the year, the present week has been
an exception to the rule at the Grand.
"In Old Kentucky."
In the present days of depression, in
not only things theatrical, but in all
kinds of business, a play or entertain
ment of any kind that can draw is con
sidered a phenomenon in its way. For
tnis reason, if for no other, "In Old
Kentucky." which opens at the Grand
tomorrow night, should command at
tention, as it has been the winning at
traction in the whole of Manager Litt's
very successful career. This play is to
a certain extent connected with the
history of theatricals in this cfty, for its
merits were first applauded by a St.
Paul audience; and it is to the eood
opinion placed upon it by our press and
public that Mr. Litt attributes his de
cision to buy it and tho record it has
made show that he did wisely to base
Ins venture on such a foundation.
Among the nov3l features of the play
that caught the popular fancy from the
first night was the "Pickaninny Band,"
and although it was oniy put in as an
incident of the play, the little colored
boys were made a< feature in spite of
themselves, or the calculations of either
author or manager. Aside from its re
freshing novelty of scene and situation,
its exciting incidents, and at times
thrilling episodes, its story develops a
beautiful little love story, quaint and
pathetic at certain stages, but thorough
ly effective throughout. I

HE WAS IN HAPPY MOOD,
And Declared That the Story of

Never Grow Old— Other Orators
Help to Make the Occasion a
Memorable One — Banquet by
Washington, Dec. 22.— Vice Presi
dent Stevenson wsis the leading orator
at the annual banquet >ield here tonight
to (commemorate "Forefathers' day."
He responded to the toast "Sons of the
Pilgrims in the .Nation." In happy
words he referred to the fact that he
came from the West— almost within
hailing distance of the "extremely un
pretentious city of Chicago." He was
a Westerner, a poor Scotch-Irishman at
best, and neither a pilgrim nor the
descendant of a pilgrim. He said he
was like the colored brother who want
ed a license to exhort, but not to preach,
as he said, "If I had a license to preach
I got to taKe a text, but if I jist has a
license to exhoit, 1 can branch." Mr.
Stevenson added: "In the early days
of its history Illinois was the common
ground where met the Kentuckian aim
the New Englander. Fidelity to truth
compels me to observe that their nieet
were not always of a strictly religious
character. In one respect, however,
the desceudants of the pilgrims bear a
striking resemblance to those ot Scotch-
Irish and cavalier ancestry. I refer to
their readiness at all times and under
all circumstances to accept positions of
trust or responsibility and of profit.
You do well to celebrate Forefathers'
day. The story of the pilgrims is oue
CAN NEVER GKOW OLD.
"That the pilgrims were men of deep
religious convictions— of a living faith
is attested by the churches, charitable
institutions, seminaries and great uni
versities which have followed the path
of New England emigration to tbe
western limits of the continent. In the
mart, at the bar, in pulpit aud in hall of
legislation, the influence of the Puritan
has beeu all-powerful. How, in the
vast area stretching westward from the
Alleghenies to the ocean, their hands
have aided in carving out new states—
in establishing upon permanent founda
tion the public defenses, in developing
the great natural resources and caus
ing, as if by magic, cities to spriug
into being— can be told only by
the historian. Lying iv the future
pathway of our republic may be
perils as great as any that have in the
past menaced our free institutions.
May we cot abide in the belief that
whatever dangers the future may dis
close—inspired by the memories of the
past, nerved by the taith that 110 tie or
circumstances can abate— the men wish
whom Plymouth Bock is the shibboleth
will stand the bulwark of ail that we
hold most dear, in our government, its
institutions and its laws?"
Other speakers were Justice Brewer,

ONLY A FEW LEFT.
Nominations Unacted Upon at the
Close of the Session.
Wasiiixgtox, Dec. 22.— 0f the 400
nominations sent to the senate by the
president during the time the senate
has been in regular session, fifty were
unacted upon when the senate took a
recess for the Christmas holidays.
These nominations do not expire at this
time, however, as they would in case of
an adjournment, and will be considered
after congress shall reconvene on the 3d
of Jauuary, just as if they had
not been scut in until that time.
A large majority of the nominations
which co over are those of postmasters
in small towns. There are some nomi
nations leftover, however, not included
in this class, and among these are the
nomination of Judge Uornblower for
justice of the supreme court, and of
Robert E. Preston for director of the
mint, which have been In dispute almost
ever since the beginning of the ex
ecutive session. The list also includes
the name of J. Scott Harrison, brother
of ex-President Harrison, for surveyor
of customs at Kansas City, Mo.; of
Walter H. Bunn, appraiser of merchan
dise; William O. Oaillman, super
intendent of Indian schools, and of
A. J. Arnold, postmaster at Topeka.
Isaac W.J. Wolf, of New Jersey, as agent
of the Indians at Nevada agency, and

Wasuixgtox, Dec. 22.— The house

THE HAWAIIAN BUSINESS.
Ex-Minister Stevens bears a striking
likeness to a hen in a hailstorm.—Chica
go Evening Post.
Grover is probably sincere. But the
fact that he lacks judgment is no reason
for congress to support his mistaken
course. — Milwaukee Wisconsin.
The stick of President Cleveland's
Hawaiian sky rocket has come down,
and how Mr. CleAelanrt had to "hustle"
to dodge itl— New York Tribune.
Mr. Cleveland's Hawaiian policy was
foolish. This fact will remain, no mat

is proved to have done the lying.—Mil
The president's letter was the turn
ing point for the organs in the ilawai
iau war. They are now turning in all
directions trying to get arouud it.—
We very much mistake the temper
and houesty of the American people if
the message is not generally conceded
to be full of patriotism and wisdom.—
Queen "Lil" may yet prove to be a
blessing in disguise to those congress
men who have had only favors to ask
from Mr. Cleveland and none to offer
linn.— St. Louis Republic.
If President Cleveland took the same
interest in restoring conlidence as he
does In restoring a rotten monarchy, he
would be ol greater value to the coun
try. — Baltimore American.
The Hawaiian provisional government
is composed largely of men of New
Englaud ancestry. That's why there is
so much of the spirit of '76 in their
present attitude.— Philadelphia Press.
The message, stripped of all verbiage
and surplusaee. Is a very reluctant con
fession on the part of Mr. Cleveland
that he started wrong, and thereby
failed to carry out his undertaking.—
Piitsbura Commercial Gazette.
The message is already the laughing
stock of the country; and only makes
the attitude of this would-be profound
and imperious administration more than
ever criminally ridiculous aud ridicu
lously criminal.— Dea Moines Register.
Nobody knows what Queen Liliuoka

The only danger of bloodshed from
this Hawaiian business is threatened by
Chandler in the senate and Boutelle in
the house. If their noble and patriotic
rage can be stilled, there will be no se
rious interruption of peace.—Philadel
Have you noticed how grasefully
Cleveland in his message ignores con
gress' demand for the Hawaiian docu
ments? You couldn't phase Grover
Cleveland's pompous egotism with a
government pile driver.— Philadelphia
It is a complete back-down for the ad
ministration. From now on we shall
expect Mr. Cleveland and his secretary
of state to take orders from congress.
There may be more blundering, but
they will not aionfl be to blame.—Cleve
The situation is no doubt embarrass
ing, but it is not President Cleveland
wiio lias made it so. 'J'iie unpleasant
complication is due to the usurpation of
war powers by the last administration,
as represented by Minister Stevens.—
Louisville Courier- Journal.
Our people would be very glad to
have the llawaiians "fight it out among
themselves." Perhaps in this way a
happy solution of the question may be
arrived at, and our country relieved
from the embarrassment* of the present
situation.— Richmond Dispatch.
It was creditable in the president to
ask for amnesty, and to abstain from
warlike measures, but is still as true as
ever that no interference whatever with
Hawaii, and no proceedings whatever
in behalf of the monarchy, are desired
by this country.— Washington News.
Congress now takes the helm. If the
Republicans are for Stevens and an
nexation, let them say so. If they dare
to defend the immorality of an unpro
voked attack upon a friendly govern
ment, lee us hear how they get at the
law of their position.— St. Louis Re
President Cleveland is as fortunate
in the opposition to his Hawaiian policy
as in the impregnable ground upon
which the policy itself is based. Its
intense partisan temper makes more
striking by contrast the culm and in
flexible patriotism of the president. —
Mew York Times.
The documeut is terse, well rounded
and complete. That ihe efforts of this
srovernment were thwarted by the seem
ing obstinacy of the queen made in nec
essary to lay the questiou before con
gress for investigation and action. The
president and secretary of state have
donu well.— Cleveland Plain Dealer.
That the president did not succeed in
all that he desires is no reflection upon
his line of action or the righteousness
at tiie course which he adopted. By
adherence to the same high principles
of international honor and integrity,
congress will merit and receive the np
proval of all men who love justice.
— Detroit Free Press.
This nation cannot afford to sell its
honor for any price, however great. It
caunot afford to descend" trom the high
plane of morality and justice which has
distinguished its treatment of other na
tions, and the president has not mis
taken the people in believing that they
will not consent to use their power to
despoil a weak aud defenseless nation.
—Kansas City Times.
It is a logical conclusion from the
whole tenor of the message that the ad
ministration never proposed to restora
the queen by a resort to armed force. If
this is true, there seems to be little rea
son to doubt that the Hawaiian episode
is practically ended, so far as President
Cleveland is concerned. If so, congress
will now assume the management of
the questson, and Queen Lil's rule is
probably at au end forever.— Chicago
President Cleveland's rnessaee on
Hawaiian affairs clears the subject of
all the mists and contradictions that
have hung over it, by a concise state
ment of facts, showing the evolution of
the provisional government and the
treaty of annexation to have been
the outcome of interference by the
American minister and naval forces
landed at his instance. It is the cold,
hard logic of facts that makes the presi
dent's statements impregnable, carrying
conviction to all.— Pittsburg Post.
Mr. Cleveland is' entirely correct in
turning upon the annexationistshouteis
their favorite phrase by characterizing
Mr. Stevens' use of the United States
troops us "an act of war." He is correct
in saying that this act left upon the
United States the responsibility of re
pairing it so far as lies within its power,
lie is also right in pointing out that the
de facto government at Hawaii has not

ment- But where the administration
made its error was in concluding that it
