OUR ERROR IN CUBA.
News and Courer.
Senator Beveridge's speech at the
Republican mais meeting in Ob-ago,
Wednesday night, is of the same
quality as the one he delivered in the
senate on the sama general subject a
few months ago- 200,000 copies of
which were printed for di-tribution
and then burned by order of ibe Re.
publican campaign committee-and
this is enough, perhaps, to say of it as
a whole. The eminent gentleman con
trived, hovrever, to put some interest
into one part of it.
"If the opposition," he said, "de
clare that we ought to set up a separate
government over the Philippines, be
cause we are setting up a separate
goverament over Cuba, I answer that
such an error in Cuba does not justify
the same error In the Philippines. I
say that for the good of Cuba more
even than for the good of the United
States a separate government over
Cuba, uncontrolled by the American
Republic, never should have been per
And again: "The resolutiou bastily
passed by all parties in Congress, at
an excited hour," declaring that the
people of Cuba are, and of right ought
to be, free and independent, "was an
error, which years of time, propinquity
of location, common commerce, ma
terial interests and similar dangers
surely will correct." "The President
considers that resolution a promise.
And so the unnatural experiment is to
be tried. What war and nature-aye,
what God hath joined together is to be
put asunder." "I say that it will be
an evil day for Cuba when the Stare
and) Stripes come down from Morro
The distinguished orator was care
- nl to say that in expressing these
views he spoke for himself alone, but
it is to be remembered that he is not a
private citizen, and did not speak as
one 'He spoke as a United States
Senator, representing the party in con.
trol of the government, to a mass
meeting of the party in the seco'nd
largest city in the country.. Had he
spoken as a private citizen his speech
would not have been worth noticing;
it certainly would not have been tele
graphed all over the country; and it
to equally certain that it would not
have been delivered in the same place
and presence. [t is of interest, or the
part we have quoted is of interest,
only because of the position of the

t he did not speak for himself
alone, but was reflecting (lie senti

colony of the same power; why Cube

and its sister islands should not be so.
Senator Beveridge alone troets the
diman~eity frankly and sqnarely. The

We may exense the rest of the speech
for th3 sake of this part of it. It is

* COLLEGE BRED MEN.
President McKinley has shown a
decided appreciation of the superb
qaalificat ions of college men in politi
cal affairs. On the commission t bat he
sent to the Philippines last year to in
vestigate and report upon the candi
tion of affairs in those islands were
President Schurman, of Cornell Uni
ver.ity, and Prof. Dean Worcester
of Yale, we think. President Seth
Low, of Columbia University, is to be
offered one ot the places on the com
mnission to negotiate peace with China.
President Eliot, of Harvard, is spoken
of for ambassador to Italy, and will
probably be offered the position.
* It has not been many years since a
popular impression prevailed that col
lege-bred men and college professors
were impractical, that they knew noth
ing outside of their studies and recita
tion-rooms. It was always a mistake.
It is a greater mistake now than it
ever was before,- for the reason that
eollege-bred men are taking more in
It was always t rue that college ed
cation was a help to any man. It
could not make a Solomon of a dance,
but it could and did make a wise man
wi-ar. There are many wise men
sound thinkers and judicious actors
who have never been inside a college;
but they would be much wiser if they
had had that advantage,
Numabcrs of pesky little politicians
can be found who sincerely think, or
tink they think, that they know in
finitely more about government and
"practical life" generallyAhan the most
distinguished presidents of the best
collegea in the country; and more than
any college graduate who fools his
time away with books and magazines
and other "literary track." But the
world has come to know that the
thinking man is the wise man; that
questions of government are grasped
and handled with far more skill by
men of trained intellects that by pot
house politicians; and, speaking gene
rally, that the man who studies and
thinks is more capable of expressing a
safe and sensible opinion on matters
of public interest than one whose
thinking never goes beyond the point
of studying how to catch the popular
breeze and utilizing popular prejudice
for the purpose of his own political
Lest we might be misunderstood,
we say again that a college education
is not necessary to correct views or to
a high order of mental development
only this, that all other things being
equal-natural endowments. correct
principles, etc.-the college-trained
man is better equipped for serving his
country and his generation than one
not so trained.

widow of the brave General Burnham,
of Machins, Me., when the doctors
said she could not live till morning,"

she must soon die from Pneumonia.
