The London papers are alarmed because
of the success of Tammany. Those Eng?
lish ed'.tors are fond of alarming them?
selves over the affairs of this country.
It is creditable to the city of Rounoke
to know that in a population of twenty
thousand, less than two dozen of its cit?
izens have so lnr shown a desire *to take
the property of their neighbors without
giving a consideration in return.
The movement for a national quaran?
tine is gaining force rapidly. The citizens
of Memphis have taken the matter up
and petitioned Congressman Carniack to
use his best endeavors to secure the en?
actment of a^nationnl quarantine law at
the coming session of Congress. Mr.
Oarmack, In reply, says that'he heartily
favors the plan, .and is already at'work to
bring about the desired end. He hns
wi itten to the chairman of the House
committee on epidemics suggesting the
importance of such a law. The Georgia
legislature has also interested itself in the
movement. A resolution introduced in
that body Saturday calls upon Congress
to enact laws empowering the Govern?
ment to take charge of quarantine regu?
THOU SHALT NO! STEAL.
The supreme and linal judge of our
conduct has given us a plain and unvary?
ing guide to point us to the real pleasures
of this life. He lias put a sting in every
wrong and whether or not such wrong
be sanctioned by the laws of man the
withering pcison of it will not ouly
curse Its^viotlm here, but damn his soul
in eternity. Thou shalt not steal. No
man has ever denied the perfect justice
of tnis law. The highwayman who risks
his life to gaiu by robbery is a wretch,
but is be worse than the man who will,
when the bars of the law between hon?
esty and dishonesty are down, delibei
ately plan to steal his neighbor's property
In the face of a conscience that rises be?
fore him and tells him he is committing
a theft? Would not the man who would
??ob his neighbor under the forms of law
pilfer his neighbor's pockets If assured
of immunity from detection and danger!
AMERICAN APPLICATIONS OF THE
This decision in Philadelphia, about to
be mado by popular referendum, suggests
the growing favor in which the idea is
held of a direct decision by the people
upon various matters of public interest
or concern. Seth Law, for example, has
made it evident In his speeches that he
would be in favor of referring the ques?
tion of the Sunday sale of dr'nks to a di?
rect vote of th? citizens of New York. In
the two States of Connecticut ami New
Jersey the voters have within a few
weeks taken direct action on important
questions submitted for their determina?
tion. The voters of Connecticut, by a
very large majority, declared themselves
on October 3 as iu favor of an amend?
ment to the constitution of the State
which restricts suflrage to voters able to
read in the English language any article
of the constitution or any section of the
statutes. The vote against the proposi?
tion was very slight, every community,
whether urban or rural, voting in the
affirmative. In New Jersey a great popu?
lar tontest was waged upon the question
of an amendment to the constitution
prohibiting gambling?the ovil practi?
cally aimed at being that of race-track
pool-selling, book-making, and betting.
The country districts of New Jersey
were in favor of the amendments, and
the large towns were against it At first
the amendment seemed to be lost, but on
the final count of the votes it was found
that this salutary provision had been
adopted. The good citizens oi New
Jersey have found themselves unable to
trust their law-makers to ?'o their duty
as against the powerful Influence of the
gambling fraternity: ami thus it has been
deemed best to appeal to the referendum,
and seek protection under a constitu?
tional clause. The most complete domi?
nation of our legislatures by bosses and
corrupt elements will probably drive the
people of this country to a constantly in

Ex-Minister A. W. Terrell *n a recent
article In the Century Magazine draws a
very different picture of Abdul Hamid,
the Sultan of Turkey, from the one so
lonir accepted by the peoplo of the Uni?
ted States and the rest of the world as
the correct one. Instead of being a
blood thirsty ruler and ??ruel anil cow?
ardly as an individual, Mr. Terrell de?
scribes the Sultan as a modest, refined
and kind-hearted gentleman, of a philo?
sophic mind and somewhat melancholy
temperament, and with a broad charity
for men of religious faiths ether than his
From this view of the Turkish ruler it
would appear that the terriolo massacres
of Armenian* were due more to the
ferocity ami fannticistn of the Turkish
people themselves than to any cruelty and
vintlictiveness on,the part of the Sultan.
The world, however, rvill be slow to ac?
cent this picture of the Turkish ruler, in
view of the despotic mit" roof his govern?
ment, which it believes ought to have
been able to have checked the. wholesale
slaughter of nnolfending Armenians antl
curbed th? ferocity of the Turkish people.
It must l>e confessed, however, that in
his dealings with the Greeks during and
after the late war, the Sultan manifested
a patience and a forbearance highly cred?
itable to him us a ruler and a man. Re?
sides, it sometimes happens that the
most autocratic of sovereigns apparently
ate ruled by cabals In their own govern?
ment who, under the cover of his author?
ity, commit excesses whicb at heart he
not only disapproves, but actually con?
demns; and it is barely possible that
Andul Hamid may be similarly situated
in regard to his immediate advisers.
AN INDEPENDENT CITY.
In commenting on the recent election,
several out-of-town papers have said
that Baltimore can now be regarded as a
normally Republican city. This same
claim has been made by some local poli?
ticians in the midst of their jubilation
over the result of Tuesday. But !;tho
claim is unfounded. There are probably
about 20,000 Independent voters in this
city, and they hold the balance of power.
They'voted to down hosaism and are as
quick to punish corruption In one party
as in the other. They will keep the Re?
publicans in power as long as they give
decent, honest government, and they will
put them out when they misbehave them?
selves and forfeit, public confidence.
This independent army of voters can
use a club on the new administration at
the next election just as effectively as it
did in beating the Basin ring last week.
We hope it will not be necessary. But
one of the surest ways to breed rascals
in a party is to encourage the idea that
the party has an absolute held on the city
and no matter what is done the party
will win. The fostering of this idea was
responsible for much of tne crookedness
during Basin's reign, and if the Republi?
cans who are just coming in delude
themselves with any sind? notion they
will waku up some morning and lind out
their mistake ? Baltimore Sun.
