It Is evident from the tone of the self
nnnud antl-imperia'ist press and spokes
men that they are in doubt what course to
pursue to balk the United States govern
ment in its purpose to give the people of
the Philippines security and peace und r
intelligent control. They have criticised
Agulnaldo, some of them going so far even
as to accuse him of planning his own cap
ture. All of them have deprived him of the
halo with which they crowned him when
they made him the George Washington of
the Philippines. The other able leaders,
whom Mr. Erving Winslow, secretary of
the Aguinaldo society in Itoston, predicted
would rise up to take the place of their
former hero, have not materialized, no one
now seeming to be desirous of assuming
the precarious rule of the captured and
now peace-advocating chieftain. If these
champions of the Insurrection against the
United States In the Philippines do not do
something at once theirs will be as lost a
cause as If it had never existed. The de
spondency of the people orphaned by the
capture and recreant course of Aguinaldo
is calculated to touch the feelings of the
kind-hearted. Jieing amicably disposed,
the Journal has a suggestion for the. lead
crlcss Tagals in the United States. When
Aguinaldo was eaptyrcd It was-hinted that
tho man In possession of Funston is not
the genuine article. Now, why should not
the Atkinsons, the Winslows and the occa
sional instructor in universities who depre
cate the attempt to rob the Filipinos of
their civilization turn this suggestion of a
bogus Aguinaldo to their advantage? They
can dec;are that the person who has made
use of tho phrase "the glorious sovereign
banner of the United Statt s" is an impos
tor and not the genuine Aguinaldo. They
can assert with vehemence that their
George Washington is yet true to the Tagal
civilization and will lead his hosts forth
to battle against the United States and Its
Imperialism. This suggestion is not copy
righted. SHALL TUR WOItlv. OF CIVILIZATION
Even under military supervision, with
many Cubans as officers, it Is evident that
the people of that island are having for
the first time In their history a govern
ment which Insures security, freedom, rea
sonable taxation and public instruction
for the children. All that 'stands In the
way of the pushing of enterprises I3 un
certainty as to the future political con
trol of the island. In the Philippines, re
sistance to the authority of the United
States is practically at an end; military
control is soon to give way to civil govern
ment. In towns and provinces local self
government has been established. With a
wonderful rapidity the methods of peace
in government are spreading over the
Islands. Wrongs tolerated by the Spanish
government have been overthrown; the ex
actions of the monks are at an end. The
people have been delivered out of the
hands of tho Spanish tax-gatherer, life
and property are being made secure, and
scnools aro being established. In short,
for the first time in tho long history of
tho Philippines a system of civil govern
ment is being established in justice and
intelligence. The work is by r.o means
perfect, but it Is a vast improvement over
anything else the islands have ever known.
Far better results are being attained than
could have been under any native rule.
It is doubtful if any candid man would
undertake to question the declaration that
under American rule the peoples of Cuba
ana tho Philippines- are having far better
government than could be obtained by
tho entire Independence of these peoples.
Such being the case, why object to hav
ing this government proceed to build up
stablo and intelligent local governments?
Could the natives, if acting under the most
worthy impulses, begin to give these
islands as good government In the real
meaning of the term as they aro certain
of having under the control of the United
States? Is the good work that has been
begun to be abandoned and the Islands
left to the conflicts of ambitious leaders,
simply because there is no precedent for
the exercise of paternal or protectorate
powers "over these Islands? Is the gov
ernment of the United States to be de
terred from bringing the inhabitants of
these Islands to higher levels of civilization
pimply because a class of politicians de
clares that such rule Is Imperialism, and
that it will surely undermine our repub
lican administration to devote ourselves to
raising the people of the Philippines to
a better civilization than they could other
A SIGNIFICANT SPEECH.
The full text of United States Senator
McLaurin's. address at Charlotte. N. C,
a few days ago, shows that it was a
strong appeal te Southern business men
to abandon dead political issues and align
themselves with a party that favors na
tional progress and commercial expansion.
In effect it was an arraignment of Eourbon
Democracy and Populism and a plea for
tho political emancipation of the South.
Tho speaker took for his subject "Present
Conditions in the South ami Our Duty for
the Future." His speech dealt with prin
clpWM ami policies rather than with sta
tisties. In opening he said:
The time Is past for the discussion as to
whether this government it to bo one con
solldated in its structure or a loose aggre
gatlan of (so-called) sovereign States. The
civ H war settled that. It Is useless to
discuss the question of whether this is to
be a purely theoretical democratic govern
ment or an expanding and giant republic
The Spanish war settled that. Why not
then accept conditions as they are and
make the most of them? The agitation of
such issues only serves to sidetrack broad
American doctrines and should not be
mad party questions, because they grow
out of aetual political and economic condi
tions, which Is beyond the. power of either
partv to change, i care nt of wh t po
litical faith the occupant of the White
House might have been; for. if a true
American, mindful of the Honor and dig
nltv of the Nation, the results of the Span
ih war could not be widely different from
what they are to-day. Why should our
people be the only ones to close their eyes
to what Is going on? Why should we move
alone In the name obi ruts and Insist that
political policies and old traditions, long
Kin lead, are vital living Issues, and de
pend upon them for the salvation of the
Prom this the speaker proceeded to show
how the Southern people hail been duped
by false leaders in the North until they
hid become "the miserable slaves of one
party and a football for the other." He
said the triumphant re-election of Mr. Mc
Kinley whs a victory for national progress
and growth over their opposite, llu re
pudiated the Northern leaders of P.ryan
Democracy as the worst enemies of the
South. "The real Democratic leaders in
the South for the past three years." he
said, "have been Allen, Teller and Pet-
tlgrew, all of them able men, but one a
Populist, one a high-tariff Ilepublkan, and
the other I do not know what." He gave
his hearty approval to territorial anil com
mercial expansion, and declared his belief
that the South has more to gain than any
other section from the broad and progres
sive foreign policy of the present admin
istration, "particularly when the Isthmian
canal is constructed, as it will be." He
concluded by declaring that "A statesman
ship so partisan in Its character as to ad
here to old political doctrines, either set
tled by the arbitrament of the sword or
firmly fixed as government policies, cannot
solve the political and economic problems
now confronting the Southern people."
Coming from a Southern Democratic sen
ator the speech was very significant of new

Claude Hanbury Cooke, fourteen years
of age, commonly referred to as "Jack"
Cooke, began a series of revival meetings
at Meridian-street M. K. Church last night,
assisted by his brother, J. II. C'ooke. a
blonde haired young man of about twenty
one. Poth are from England. Jack Cooke
is known as the boy preacher. He appears
in the pulpit in knickerbockers. He and
his brother are accompanied by Dun ford
Auidermoll, of Los Angeles, Cal. The lat

The boys arrived here yesterday evening

conducted services in the leading churches
in the United States, lie made his first
bow before the world as a public preacher
in May. lv:i7, in Manchester. England.
The young evangelists opened at Meridian-street
Church last night for two wee ks
rvf revival meetings. Jack Cooke is an elo
quent young orator and speaks extem
poraneously. Prior to the sermon last night
his brother recited a poem entitled "It
Touched the Very Spot." written by their
father. The brother possesses a full, rich
tenor voice and leads the singing. The text
was selecteel by some one in the audience
It was from Unmans and was on the ques
tion of faith. lt is said of the yiung
evangelist that he always allows his audi
ence to select his text and he then frames
a sermon on this text. Last night as soen
as the text had been decided on he pro
ceeded to preach h sermon on faith. He
said that men should have the kind of faith
that would be ready at a moment's notice
to serve them. He said it seemed to him
that the active faith of tho days of miracles
Is the kind of .aith people need to-dav.
"Friends." he said, "you are Christians
sure enough, but how much faith do you
possess?" He urged that people make God
a companion. "You have faith." he de
clared, "that when you go out of this
church you will go home saMy. In this
same way have faith in God." Faith te
him. he said. Is the only thing that can
bring that assurance that accompanies
peace. The young preacher urged his hear
ers to practice a prayer of faith. "Friend."
he said in a voice of eloquent appeal, "if
you are a Christian weak don't be weak
any longer but have faith."
in concluding his remarks he appealed
to those who lieard him to assist In mak
ing the meetings a success. "We want you
Christians for about two or three weckstto
drop your dignity and pride," he remarked.
The meeting closed with an appeal to peo
ple to come forward and kneoi t the altar.
J. H. Cooke ass'sted the young preacher In
getting the people to conic forward. A
number of people pressed forward and knelt
at the altar whUe prayers were offered.
After this It was announced that they
would have what they termed "live min
utes with Jesus." This consisted of testi
monials from different people who stood
about the altr. Pctween the. brief state
ments made by those called on the young
singer would lead the audience in a verso
of a familiar hymn, such as "Stand Up
for Jesu." "What a Friend We Have in
Jesus." "We're Marching to Zion." etc.
Another meeting will be held to-night,
and the work will probably continue night
ly for some time. There was not a large
audience present last night, but tho young
evangelists expect a larr turnout to
night. Rev. W. A. Quayle. pastor of the
church, took part in the services.

CHIEF JtSTICC Fl LI.EIt.
Supreme C ourt OppoMeil to Admitting
the Army ('nptniii to Hall Insu
lar I'nst'N .Not Decided.
WASHINGTON, April 22.-Thc United
States Supreme Court to-day denied the
application of former Capt. Oberlin M. Car
ter to be admitted to ball. The court con
tenteel Itself with a bare announcement
made by the chief justice of the result of
Its elellberations. No reasons were as
signed and no reference "was made to Car
ter's motion to strike Solicitor General
Itichards's brief from the hies of the court.
Chief Justice Fuller announced the final
adjournment of the court for the term on
the :7th of May. The call of the docket
will be suspended next Friday and the
court will take a recess next Monday until
May 13. No Intimation has been given by
the court as to when the decision of the
insular cases may be expected or whether
they will be decided at all before final ad
journment. An opinion was handed down to-day In
the case of II. L. lledford vs. the Eastern
Huildlng and Loan Association of Syra
cuse, N. Y. This case grew out of the tale
of ttock iu the building association to Bed
ford and the making of a loan to him In
Pm, he being a resident of Tennessee. Bed
ford made- default in the payment of his
note and pleaded the violation of a law of
Tennessee requiring the deposit of funds
by building associations doing business in
the State. The court held, however, that
the loan was a contract which the act of
the State Legislature could not impair.
The time of the court was given to-day
largely to the question of the right of one
State to quarantine against another. The
contention arose in connection with the
case of W. 1. Smith vs. the St. Louis Ac
Western Railway Company,. Involving
eiuarantine regulations against tho importa
tion of cattle in Ki7. The cattle shipment
upon which this case turned was made by
Smith over the St. Louis road from Plain
Dealing. La., to Fort Worth. Tex., the offi
cials of the road being unaware that a
quarantine had been established, as had
been done' by tho Texas Alheials. When the
existence of this restriction became kneiwn
the railroad company refused to deliver
the stock to the -dealers and reshlpped It
to Plain Dealing. There Smith refused to
receive it. as he also did the proceeds of
the sale of the stock. Smith then brought
suit for damage's, contending that the regu
lations were an interference with Inter
state commerce and unjustified by the
facts. The trial court sustained this regu
latlon, but the State Court of Appeals re
versed the decision, holding in favor of
the railroad company. To-day's opinion af
firmed the latter decision on the ground
that the State had a right under its police
power to protect itself against infectious
disease, even though commerce may inci
dentally be Interfered with by the regula
tions for such protection. Justices Harlan
and White unite'd in a dissenting opinion
ami Justice Brown dclivereel a elissenting
opinion of his own.
The court denied a motion for leave to
file a potitkiu for writ of mandamus in
the American Sugar Refining Company's
controversy with the government concern
ing the polariscopic tests of sugar. The
motion had in view a proceeding authoriz
ing United States consuls in foreign coun
tries to take the testimony of experts in
behalf of the sugar company.
Justice Brewer handed down an opinion
in the cae of Hasmusscn vs. The State of
Nevada, in which he c.rhrmed the constitu
tionality of the law of the State of Idaho
authorizing a quarantine against sheep in
outside States supposed to be affected by
an infectious disease.

not reached until 1 o'clock to-day, sime
which time the jobbers, warehouses and

east ef this city.
At Newport and Dayton, Ky., very many
people have been driven from their homes.
The water works of Newport are unable to

settled that the Newport race track will
not be fiooded. The races are proceeding
under very sloppy conditions.

that there is not the least danger of an

present, but towns on the Ohio river below
are net yet out of danger because of rains
in the valley last night and to-day. All up

Ohio registered l'.'.S feet at the dam here at

city are elown so that the works along the

The flood brought in much slimy mud

require a uay er two to remove it from

the mud has clogged up the machinery,
some of which will have to be taken apart

LONDON. April 22.-A dispatch from St.
Petersburg, dateel April 22. says the wis
dom of the Czar's appointment of General
Vanovsky. as minister of public instruc
tion, liecomea more apparent every day.
With the permission of the idice the stu
e'ents of the university, technical Insti
tute and high schools heM meetings to-d:iy
tc eliscuss various questions In which tn?y
are concerned. General Vanovsky attend
ed the meeting of the university etudems.
A letter from St. Petersburg, dated April
S, says: "The appointment of ex-MliiHlcT
ct War Peter Semcnovitch Vanovsky to tho
responsible and pejssibly elangerenis iosl
tion of minister of education is the l-et
proof that the Czar does not share the ap
parent belief of the political police that
university students are Invariably revolu
tionists In disguise and that the way to
reiorni higher education is to abolish higher
educational institutions or turn them lny
military barracks. This appointment hal
been talked of, as it was known that the
Czar was taking General Vanovsky's al
vice in the matter of student discontent,
but it was scarcely believed the aged sol
dier would receive his highest commander' a
all to re-enter the tanks, lie is In hU
seventy-ninth year. That he was called
upon to put em harness again is the best
proof of the great scarcity of able men in
Russian public life.
"General Var.ovfcky was commissioned to
investigate and report on the student
troubles of two years ago. He maele a num
ber of wise recommendations then which,
possibly through the intluence of the lata
minister of eüuculiu:i, M. BogoliepofT, cam
to naught. General Vanovsky's secret re
port on the troubles of K'j was printej
in Berlin in Russian, and lie has been gen
erally recognized since then as a deiided
opponent of tho police legime of M. Bogo
bepoff and M. Sipiaguine.
"In this conneetion one finds a notables
example of the way in which imperial good
will t an and is t ome times turned into the
tpposite by those intrusted with the re
sponsibility of carrying out the design of
his Majesty. As has been stated in dis
patches from here, it has been provision
ally eleclded not to enforce for the present
the temporary regulations against stueient
ejisoniers. These regulations order the en
rollment eif turbulent students into thj
army. The whole agitation eif the present
school year centered arounel these regu
lations. The elemand for their abrogatl ui
was the eattllnal cause ejf th outbre-ak of
disorders in so many higher schools, though
lesser grievances were often put forwar.l
for tacitical reasons. They are, tn fa'-;,
regareled by the students an an unheard of
punishment for otten trilling breaches of
university discipline and as a barbaric dis
play of contempt for their aspirations. On
the either hanu the army officers feel thnt
the enrollment of btudents into the army
us an act of punishment Is a dishonor t )
the army, which is, in fact, turned into a
penal Institution. Matters are made muc.l
worse from the fact that the students aro
distributee! in many regiments, instead of
being confined to the avowedly penal regi
ments. Now it may te a surprise to most
people to learn that these much-contested
military regulations were intended by th
Czar as a proof of his good will, as a youni
ruler, toward his young, if sometimes ..
orderly, subjects. At the time of the last
great troubles he was confronted with tha
prospect of many brilliant young men of ex
cellent families being cast into prison a
felemn for youthful lollies. He knew that
this meant the absolute ruin of the futur-j
of every one of them and the blasting of
the happiness of hundroels of homes. Oa
the other hand, it was felt that leniency
would allow revolutionary doctrines to gain
a firm foothold in the universities. The
guilty must be weeded ejut, the erring re
claimed. His Majesty and his auiseT8 be
thought them of that other great educa
tional Institution, the army, and it wa
decided to place those who apjeared to bo
leading the disturbances in the army for
various periods. There they would le-atu
discipline and would, if composed of tho
prope-r ingreelients of manhood, re-turn to
civil life sobereel and lifted te take up the
burden of life. The Czar Insisted that such
enforced military services should have no
unfavorable effect upon the future prospect
of the disciplined young men in other
words, no Record should be made that tho
service was disciplinary; that all previous!
scores should be regarded squared by hon
orable bearing of arms, and that no 11
crlminatlon should be maele in appointment
to public positions against the student sel
dlers, whe It was expressly stated, were
tc be allowed upon their release to re-enter
"The Importance of this can scarcely hi
appreciated In e-ountrie-s wlare citizens do
not lead a double life, as they do he-re a,
physical and a paper life, a life elescrlbed
in documents .that must be presented on
every occasion anel which register every
stigma and every fault. The Czar's design
was to run a wet sponge over youthful mU
demeanors. It ha pened, however, that M.
Bogoiiepoff was minister of education, and
M. Bogoiiepoff was a proud, unreasonable,
stubborn man. His appoint ent was re
garded by friends of the univers ities as a
calamity, and their prognostication!! were
unhappily fully realized. He bad extin
guished himself for harshness while cura
tor of the Moscow educational districts,
and was cordially hated by all students be
fore his appointment. Himself the child of
very humble parents, he had no sympathy
with poor students. Knowing hlmelf dis
liked, he was determlneei not to bend to
Hudent opposition, and the Czar's gracious
intention failed. Why? Because Bogoiie
poff, whose eluty It was to execute tho
plan and to pUce it in its proper light be
fere the academic world, represe nted it as
h p?nal measure. The students were given
to understand that they would b sent to
distant regiments In Siberia or Turkestan
and would hive menial taiks to perform.
The possibility that they might refuse? 1
teke the military oath was considered, and
they were threatened with court-martial if
they did refuse.
"It was not generally known until th
Ministry began elebating thn abrogation of
the temporary regulations that the enforce I
military service did not carry with It anv
stigma or disgrace. Minister BotrnlleiN.rf
wanted It to be regarded, as a disgrace.
Bogoiiepoff Is dead. It may seem harsh to
say so. but few Russians oven in public
life regret bis eleath. and hundreds am
hturd to express gratification over his mur
der to one who condemns It. The renewed
expression of the Czar's kindly intention
toward the students In the circular ad
dressed to General Vanovsky will doub;-le-ss

majority of the student?-. The energy and
