If the sale of a hot ; tie of whiskey could he made a simple misdemeanor with an ade quale penalty which could be itn .sed by a primary court the crime could be more effectively re str.iuad.

Every city is called upon to : meet these conditions. The wear ! of a year of traffic would make an insufferable slush on a granite pavement it the slush could not he ; removed. The cement gravel on the streets of this city tortus a roadbed as hard as granite. If the requi.-ite contour can be attained and drainage can he provided Lew iston will have streets as nearly perfect as can lie found anywhere. The test to b e applied to determine te value of the paving material used in the experiments of last summer is simply a test of capacity for maintaining the weight of horses and wagons and of dura bility. That these qualities are demonstrated seems apparent to the casual observer. If this pave ment is practical a thorongh sys-, tern of paving the principal streets should be iuaugurated nt once.

These events have made the McKinley administration very populir. The feeble voices of censure have been drowned by applause. The exuberance of patriotism permitted no close scrutiny of methods or future probabilities. It was easy going with the popular tide while the en thusiasm of success prevailed; but now the time has come for wise statesmanship. The time for the application of the cold science of government is at hand. The cou trol of colonies is in the first place not compatable with the fuuda mental principles of our govern ment; but the colonies have come to us not as the result of deliberate policy, they are ours as the result of a condition thrust upon this republic. The colonies ere ours auü by the edict of public sentiment we must retain them and the other conditions follow. We must govern them. Humanity demands at our hands the civilization of our islaud possessions We must secure for them constitutional liberty, we must provide a broad commercial policy, a financial system and edti cational facilities. All of this calls for a radical departure from the policies that have been regarded the fixed principles of republican-__ ism. To successfully meet pressing demands the present administra tion, which has risen and now stands at the height of popular esteem, must exercise the wisest possible statesmanship. An eruer geucy exists, a cricis is immiueut The statesman of the day who sue-, cessfully meets the issues will be a hero of history. Can McKinley rise to this occasion? If so another star will adorn American heroes. the galaxy of ~, There are too mativ pessimists tn 1 the world.
