SHIELDING A CONSPIRATOR.
It will be remembered that the former
governor of Kentucky fled to Indiana as
Boon as the government of the state
whose executive office he had usurped
was taken control of by the existing ad
ministration. The requisition which was
made on the Republican governor of In
diana for the return of Taylor on the
charge of complicity In the murder of
Gov. Goebel was not honored, and Taylor
haa thus secured immunity against the
conseiuences of any offense which he
may have committed in connection with
the assassination of Gov. Goebel.
The chief grounds on which the requlsi.
tion was denied was that Taylor would
not secure a fair trial, and that his
prosecution, if ending In conviction for
murder, would Involve grave Injustice.
The country well understood when the
requisition was denied that partisan pol
itics was the true explanation.
There is a general knowledge prevailing
of the evidence on which the conviction■
thus far had were obtained. None will
say that that evidence does not warrant
the men who have been tried being in
dicted at least. Whether or not we be
lieve In the guilt of the men who have
been tried for the murder of Gov. Ooe
bd. none will deny that the ends of pub*
lie Justice would have been disregarded
had they not been brought to trial. That
evidence shows, too, that the man Taylor,
whose determination to hold on to the
office of governor was the main cause of
the bloodshed and turmoil of months,
ought at least to have been put on trial
for the part he baa borne in the disgrace
The effect of the action of the governor
of Indiana In denying the requisition for
Taylor's return has l**n thus far to
•hl*Jd one man among many who rlgiitly
or wrongly have been adjudged guilty of
offense* in which all bore a part. Taylor
knew what he wu about verr evidently,
when he quit the state. He is now a
fugitive from justice, and he will so re
main until he is founff within the con
fines of some state whoso executive officer
has a more exalted conception of official
duty than has the present governor of
If Taylor was the type of man whom
he has been endeavoring to. represent
himself as being he wculd not consent to
occupy the despicable position he dors
occupy. He would have returned volun
tarily and stood his trials he is
conscious of his own guilt and is too
cowardly to take the consequences of it,
or else he has a mighty poor opinion of
his own state and Us people, since he
gives both credit for submitting to a
conspiracy to rob him, their former chief
executive, of his liberty and punish him
for a crime which he never committed.
No view that can be presented will
save Taylor from the imputation of play
ing the cowani. His present position is
a dishonorable one In any event. He
ought to return to his state and stand
his trial. He would do so If he were
conscious of his innocence. Some day he
will be caught and returned, and will
have to stand trial. Many who cro not
at all deeply concerned in the outcome
of the prevailing presidential election will
be glad to see Indiana go Democratic, in
order that this fellow nvay be returned
to Kentucky or be obliged to run else
where for shelter.
A MILK A MIJTUTE.
Day by day those who axe charged with
the management of the great railroads
of, the United States show their worthi
ness of the trust reposed in them by the
appearance from time to time of some
one or other new device, either increasing
the safety or comfort of passengers or
Increasing the speed and ease with which
public travel and commercial distribution
can be carried en.
Americans in this particular branch of
industry, as well as in most others which
relate to personal well being, are far
ahead of European countries. Our rail
roads are better equipped, better operated
and more economically administered.
They give a service to the people with
which the best railroad service in Eu
rope does not admit of comparison.
There a-re many individual trains oper
ated between the large c'tles of the
United States which make wonderful rec
ords each succeeding day in point of
speed and general superiority. The fast
express trains between New York and
such cities as Chicago, Philadelphia, Bos
ton and Washington make wonderful
runs in point of speed and are ahead of
anything that could be found elsewhere,
at least until recently. But as the press
dispatches within the past few days have
pointed out, a train service now exists
between Paris and Calais which covers
the distance at a uniform rate of speed
of a mile a minute.
To traverse 185 miles day by day in ISS
minutes comes pretty near to the realiza
tion of the very perfection of rapid train
service. With a perfect equipment anl
capable administration it ought to be
feasible to maintain even that rate of
speed for distances less ttian 2uO miles
without endangering the safety of pas
sengers or making too serious a demand
en the machinery necessary.
To men who are charged with the cares
of large business establishments, and
who are obliged in the transaction of
their business to visit adjacent cities,
time is a very important element. It Is
for their convenience alone that such
trains are or should be operated. And
Judging from the progress which is be
ing made every day It will be but a short
time until the rate of a mile a mlnuto
will be accepted as the standard spead
for special express trains which are op
erated between the large cities and are
designed to meet the requirements of the
traveling business public. For all gen
eral purposes, however, the prevailing
rates of speed on American passenger
trains are sufficiently high.
The aphorism that the country la beat
governed which is least governed hold*
as true today as it ever did, notwithstand
ing the trend which is manifesting itself
In favor of the intervention of govern
mental authority in all kinds of privata
affairs. The distinctively American dis
position is to leave the Individual to look
after his own affairs, and to leave to him
his own ideals of what is best and most
pleasing, so long as it does not interfere
with others' rights to do so. This dispo
sition shows itself in every relation in
social as well as in political life.
For some years past what is known
as the settlement movement has been in
successful progress in the large Ameri
can cities. The purpose of the movement
has been the betterment of the social con
ditions of the inhabitants of the poorer
and more crowded districts of urban life.
It has met with great success, and has
spread quite generally throughout the
Of late, however, there is a disposition
shown on the part of those who are de
signed to reap the benefit of the move
ment to find fault with their benefactors.
A reaction has set in, and the poor of the
East side In New York city are under
stood to have risen in revolt against the
operation of. the betterment movement.
The chief complaint is that there is too
strong a disposition shown among those
engaged in it to correct the habits of those
with whom they come in contact, and
that the direction in which this meddling
disposition is most frequently shown fa
in trying to "Americanize" the older •*
the boys and girls of foreign-born fami
This revolt is not at all surprising. The
danger was always present In the move
ment that it would become a fad, and
that those who engaged In It might for
get the real spirit from which the settle
ment movement sprung, by setting them
selves up as the saviors of those whom
they were designed simply to visit and
help along on easier paths tn social and
worldly concerns than those on which
they might otherwise travel. Tbere is al
ways the disposition to patronize. This
the poor people are «ot willing to submit
to. Unnecessary Interference with their
personal habits is never regarded favora
bly, and when the women of the settle
ments proceeded to mold those whom
they went amort* according to their own,
THE ST. PAUL, GLOBE, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1900.
preconceived notions of what Is right and
best, they had reason, If they knew what
they were doing, to expect the resistance
which has come to them. •
The practice of philanthropy may very
easily degenerate into mere tactless inter
meddling in others' affairs. The family
which needs assistance is always ready
to accept It when It is properly offered.
But It is not properly offered when it
comes in the form of unsolicited advice
or unneoessary Interference with people's
Those who are constantly prophesying
the beautiful state of things which Is
coming into existence as soon as the so
cialistic state is called into being would
do well to think of this matter of the re
sentment with which even the poorest
and the least well Informed will receive
any interference either by the public or
by the individual in the secrets of their
daily lives, and how resolutely they will
refuse to order their lives according to
the slandards of others. When the men
and women of the settlement movement
have learned the first rudiments of help
ful social work, they will know that even
the poor foreigner or his child, once they
are incorporated in American society,
will not submit to being run through any
grooves which some other person presents
to them, no matter what excellent inten
tions they recognize their would-be ben
efactors to be possesssed of.
A READING PEOPLE.
One of the most striking circumstances
to the observant foreigner In the United
States is the great extent of reading
which is done by the people of every
rank. In no European country is it pos
sible to see the thousands of men and
women going to and coming from work
who are absorbed in their dally papers,
that may he seen in any American city
While the American people are not a
reading or Indeed a studious people,
the standard of intelligence is so high
that the ordinary hard-working man is
not content unless he is able to keep well
up in the daily progress of the world,
and that he can do through his daily
It Is estimated by the federal commis
sioner of education that there are some
thing like 17,000,000 children In attend
ance at school. Every one of these
children will probably remain at school
until he or she has secured at least
the basis of a sound English education.
They will associate with those every
day who are well informed on the cur
rent events of the world. They will have
access to almost every form of periodi
cal literature, and must show a fair
acquaintance with most subjects of cur
rent interest if they are to maintain a
reputation for intelligence.
In such a state of society illiteracy,
the .curse of European society in cer
tain European countries, is practically
an impossibility. "We may not receive
the full equivalent in popular education
for the vast sums which are being ex
pended every day in the sustainment of
the schools. But few boys or girls can
leave the American school, no matter
how poor the system may be, without
having learned enough to spur up the
Intellect to making some Increase on their
current slock of knowledge as time ad
Few, if any, of that army of 17,000,
--000 will be allowed to grow up illiterate
by their parents if they are in a position
to prevent It. The illiterate is never
the child of one who reads and writes.
The work of popular education goes on
and the standards of popular intelligence
are advancing every day. Yet there has
been something of a struggle to keep
illiteracy under. In certain regions of
the South today the proportion of il
literates is quite high, and It Is easy
to find numbers of American families
who can trace their ancestors back to
the very beginning of the nation's de
velopment in which reading and writing
are unknown arts. The problem of negro
education is still unsolved, and its dif
ficulties are only beginning to be thor
oughly understood even by the people
of the South.
Whatever future there 13 before the
United State 3as a nation, the evils which
may inflict American society will not he
the product of popular ignorance. Even
the legislation, which has aroused so
much feeling, excluding negroes from
the ballot box, has a direct tendency to
' promote popular education and will ope
rate in time to lighten up many dark
places in the South among the illiterate
whites, who will find it necessary to be
able to read and write if they wish to
exercise the franchise.
When those yvho fear for the future
of free institutions in America stop to
reflect upon the general spread of edu
cation among the people, they must at
! least admit that If this people are ever
deprived of their political freedom It
will be done, not through any military
dictator, but by the people themselves
in the intelligent exercise of their priv
ileges as reasoning members of an en

Tonight is Halloween. Its'observance
is a relic of pagan 1 times. The old lead
ing idea of this night was that a uni
versal walking abroad of spirits takes
place. In England apples and nuts are
eaten and a general good time is had
by the young people. The girls put seeds
on the stove, naming them after their
lovers. If a seed cracks or jumps, the
lover is not faithful; if it begins to blaze
or burn he has a regard for the person
making the trial. Another sport of the
evening is placing apples in a tub of
water and then taking turns at trying to
catch the swimming fruit with the
mouth. Parties are frequently given on
this night in America, and these and
other sports indulged in. The spirits
moving abroad at night in this country
are boys who bang doors, misplace signs
and do all kinds of mischief. In the
Catholic church it is the "vigil of All
Saints," a time of fast and abstinence.

sclentious consideration of every citizen
of this state, and more especially that
of the city populations. Only two years
ago the partisan press endeavored to
accomplish John Lind's defeat under the
pretense that the election of a Populist
(?) governor would drive capital out of
the state." The whole gist of their ar
ticle was that if capital were compelled
to pay its just share of taxation, it
would withdraw to some other state
where it would not be subjected to such
a heretofore unheard of proposition.
I don't care who he is nor what his
politics are, the St. Paul, Minneapolis, or
Duluth taxpayer who votes against Gov.
L.md votes against his own best inter
ests. The inuendoes indulged In by the
Dispatch in re Bank Examiner Pope,
are simply campaign tactics that should
have no weight with the man or woman
who is compelled to rely on the savings
banks of the state as a depository far
his or her earnings. Mr. Pope has done
his duty, and if some people got hit by
his action in closing certain banks, they
acted as martyrs for many others who
would have been hit with them later
had Mr. Pope been less sincere.
In my thirteen years' residence
in &t. Paul I must confess
that John Llnd is the first
governor who has had courage
enough to stand up for the rights of the
people as against their masters—the cor
porations—and for this act alone he de
serves the unqualified support of every
voter, no matter what his politics may
be. Yours for principles, not parties,

Politicians are awaiting the announce
ment of the census count, as the basis
of representation in congress depends
upon the number of persons In the coun
try. The result Is of vital interest to
.some members of congress?, as the gen
eral belief is that the basis of represen
tation will be made 200,(110, instead of 173,
--901, as at present. If the basis of repre
sentation Is increased It is more than,
likely that the membership of the house
will be reduced and that some of toe
members will be legislated out of their

Instead of parading an affidavit, ths Globe invites any one and every ona

convention of the League of National j

Two interesting papers were present

voted, the paper stated, to three dis
tinct purposes, comfort, culture and phi
lanthropy. It was impossitnle, the paper
said, to give any estimate of the pro
portion of these expenses, for people's
tastes were varied and not all spent
wisely. Women, as a rule, showed little
wisdom In the expenditure of money en
trusted to their care. The more retired
a life the woman led the less was she
apt to be wise in her expenditures.

Th« annual reception of the Mothers*
Club union was held yesterday afternoon
at Unity church. About 100 women aU
tended. Mis Clara M. Bailey, president
of the union, presided over the Interest
ing programme which preceded the re-
oeption. Dr. Alexander McGregor, of the
Park Congregational church, delivered an
address on '"The Mother and the Child."
Mr. McGregor thought that parents as a
ru?a did not make sufficient allowance
for the difference in character of in
dividual members of a family. Iron
clad rulee were too often laid down for
all when what was good for one child
was really bad for another. He stated
th*t in the training of children, mothers
had the greatest wovk in the world to
do, and congratulated the women present
on the organization which they fcad
brought about for mutual help and im
provement. Mlsw Oi;ve Long read a
paper written by Miss Alice J. Mott, ot
FaribauH, entitled "The CWld." "In our
seal for instructing the child," she said,
"we were too apt to overlook the fact
that In nunar-—us ways the child Is cap
able of teaching us." The following con
clusion summed up the general trend of
the paper: "In view of the vulgarity,
the narrowness, the pride and the solfi-n
--ness which we embody ourselves and
necessarily pass on to little unworldly
chiMren when we essay to guide them
through the conventionalities of life; in
view of the glamor and purity they lose
in our society and the guile and axtl
flce they gain, I c&n but hope that the
next fad of educators will be toward
more neglecl Instead of more culture
toward leas and later tutelage rattier
than more and earlier; and that when we
feel Inclined to meddl* with the my a*
terlous processes of character growth w«
may remember-that solemn word: 'Who
so shaH offend one uf those little ones
who believe in me' (ami It la only the
little child who realty does believe) 'It
were better for him that a millstone w«r«
hanged about his neck and that he were
drowned in the depth of the sea.'

CONCEET WAS A TEEAT.
Splendid Programme Rendered, at
Atlantic C ongregatlonal Chnreli.
A large audience enjoyed an excellent
programme presented last evening at the
Atlantic Congregational church by local •
talent. It was the annual concert of -
the church, and it was successful not
only from an artistic standpoint, but
from a financial one as well. A quar
tette, consisting of Mrs. June Hunting
ton Yale, Miss Florence Marlon Pace,
Harry George and Prof. H. E. Phillips,
gang Schuman's "Gypsy Life" and Les
lie's "Lullaby of Life." A lino har
mony marked the rendition of both
numbers. Mr. George sang "Shine On, ■
O Stars," by Sawyer. He was in ex
cellent voice, and his well trained tenor
was heard to advantage in his selection.
Arthur Berg, the violinist, played two
of Tschaikowsky's compositions, "Ro
mance" and "Humoresque;" later he
played Wlenlawski's "Adagio Elegiaque."
It Is always a distinch delight to hear
Mr. Ber* play. Not only is his reading
invariably correct, his technique excel
lent, but his Interpretation is marked -*
by a rare sympathy which more than
atones for any suggestion of immaturity ,
In his work. i£iss Pace sang Nevin'e
"Nocturne" and "Swallows," by Cowen.
An Insistent encore failed to bring a v
response. Mrs. Yale sang AllitsenV ex- J
qulsite "Unto Thy Heart," with violin !
obligato by Mr. Bergh. A St. Paul au- •
dience does noi have an opportunity of L
hearing Mrs. Yale often. When she does
sing her fine contralto makes a marked
Impression. Mr- Phillips was heard in
two solos, King's "Israel" and Nevin's
"Rosary." They were Quite up to the
high standard of the remainder of the
programme. Mr. Falrchild entertained
the audience with readings and numerous
recitation*. Especially enjoyable was
his recital of Kipling's "Mandalay" and
Arthur C. Koerner acted as accom-"
