It is to be rtegretted that enemies of Biutte derive n-tlieiious delight fromt the unlfortunate incident which affects so directly the well-b Iing of all her citizens; but that is the situa tion, and thttse are the conditions which residents of Htutte aret compelled to face. There is no estiangement between the men employed in Butte mines and their employers--nothing but the most cordial relations exist, and if the consliderations of honor and good faith are not swept aside there is no reason why the l'tesent trouble cannot be speedily settled. fOR MRS. MAYBRICK'S PARDON. Once more the friends of Mrs. May brick are making aitn effort to secure her release. Florence ithel Maybrick, n Ameletian, eas still a young woman when sihe was sentenced to death 1: years ago fo' poisoning ther husband, an Englishman. The se' nteencte was after wards conmmuoted to IlImp'soment for life and the and the unfortunate woman whose liberty was taken fronom her on the filmsiest kinl of circtlntstntial evidence, Is still languishing in an English prison. Friends, many of them men of power and influence 'in 'both countries, have striven to secure her release, but the stubborn English law has closed its tentacles tightly around her, and sot far all attempts to save her from in Justice have been Ineffectual. Mrs. Ben Jamin Harrison and Mrs. James G. Blaine were among the leaders in the first attempt to restore her to liberty, and to that end wrote u personal letter to Queen Victoria beseeching her to in tervene, but the English sovereign did not condescend to give them even the satisfaction of a response. Later, the women and children of this country subscribed a substantial suin towards an organized effort in her be half. The case was turned over to a prominent firm of attorneys In London, and some of the best legal talent was engaged-among 'whom was Sir Charles Russell-to take every step to secure jus tlie for the injured woman, but after several 'months' investigation they, gave up the fight discouraged. Not many years ago tihe ntltter was tiltught up again and ai strong petition signed and forwarded to the, home secre tary. Among those who signed it were the vice president of the Utnited States, lIhe pr'osidient of the senate, the speaker of the house, all members of the cabinet and chiefs of departments, Cardinal Gib lans and the minister to France. The reply of the home secretary was brief and decilive. He saw no reason for extending further clemency toward the pDlsoner. Despite the fact that many new phases of the case have been prod'ced since the trial, and that the presiding judge, on whose charge the conviction was mainly secured, shortly afterwards became men tally deranged, Mrs. Maybrick drags out her wretched life, Ill most of the time, In her prison cell. Here is an opportunity for King Ed ward VII to win the favor of the Ameri can people and to manifest his charac terlstic gallantry and sense of Justice by giving the unfortunate woman her liberty. Emperor William's diplomatic stroke in sending his brother to hobnob with demooracy would be outdone by the English king if he would mark the coro nation year with the rielease of Mrs. Maybrick, and thus kindle the enthusl alstn and receive the gratitude of Illberty loving America. THE SUNKEN BATTSN.IP. General Wood, in his report on the condlitions in reconstructed C'uba, makes a suggestion to the war department that the wreck of the Maine should be raised and the last vestige of the memorable but Ill-starred battleship ticnoved from the harborur of lHavana. The wre.k, it is understnod, lies not far from the middle of the harbor, uIlipyling lnce which would othelrwise I,. aricaii lali, for anchorage, and consti tuting not only an obstruction but a mrrll-n;ace to navlg:itlion. In the hull still lie the remilns of aome fifty American sailors, which ought to be recovered and lrlced in a suitable grave In the land that so efflitively avenged their dealth.

A scientific a com:nnllssion of recognlizedl ability tlladle l ;ut elalsrate and c'areful exramination of g the proiposied lroutes at P'anatma and at Nicarat'agua. The immensil amiiiounlt oif %ork which n had alreadty beeln acomrplishei at j Pnan mta by the nIotorioius Fretnch syndi- ' (ate led the comlllliissioni to decile in favor of this route, but it arppars that there ai- conrplicatiotis of an inter ratitonal and Iinaticial nature which l stand in the way of the project.

In pushing Mayor Davey to the front as an issue in this spring's campaign, the gtandurd is exptosing its protege needlessly. In appealing for six alder men to support the mayor, that news paper Is leaving a way open for voters to tell what their real opinion of the mayor and his adminlnlistration is. The result of the election April 7 will be sig nificant. The newspaper organs of the demo cratic party of Butte betray the dread of defeat which Is demoralizing the city hall politicians. The party is fighting a losing battle and its leaders know It. The frantic efforts of democratic neiws papers to save the party from total wreck would be more effectual if the forces were not so hopelessly divided. The present city administration sentems Inclined to go before the people on Its record of farcical police investigations. The newspaper organ of the city admin istration appears heartily in favor of such a test of merit at tire polls. The Standard asks that voters of Butte do not trip up the mayor. The trip up Saft river is doubtless the one the mayor's Anacnda organ has in s mind. ANOTHER DODGE. [Bolton Journal.] W Those republican representatives who are still opposing reciprocity with Cuba have taken a leaf out of Congressman Thayer's hook, and are pretending fdr political effect that reciprocity is merely a scheme to benefit the sugar tr. t. They declare that they wilt support the Payne resolution for a 20 per cent tariff reduction if the differential duty on re fined sugar, which now gives the r6 finers of the trust some small protectioi, is abolished. This would be an economic absurdity. It would admit the raw material at tlpe same rate as the finished product. In stead of depriving American sugar e. liners of the present discrimination in, their favor, It would actually establieh a discrimination against them. Raw sugar of course is bulkier than the re. fined article. It takes considerably more than a pound of raw sugar to make a ipound of refined sugar. If the raw sugar and the refined sugar were to he admit ted at the same rate of duty, the prac tical result would be that very little of the bulkier artlcle would be imported. l~urropean refiners, who have a trust of t,.elr own, would be in a positmon to d.ominate the American market, and just what the American people would gain by pulling down an American trust iand setting up a European trust to lord It over them Is something which most of us will never be able to under stand. A uniform duty upon raw and refined sugar would In effect be a bonus for the transfer of the American sugar refining industry to Cuba or the Philippines. The Standard announced this morning that democrats will still have something to yell about should the election result in the election of four of their candl dates. That statement is not in line with the Standard's declaration when it laid down the law to Butte voters, say Ing that Mayor I)avey should be given a council majority. If the administra tion saves four aldermen out of the wreck its voting strength in the cotunlll will he seven, two less than a majority. If there is anything In that ilrospec t to yell about tihe vocal exercise might as well begin before the votes are counted. The wildest prediction made since the calnpaign began is that In this morn ing's Standard where a forecast of the result in the Eighth ward is printed. The prediction that the democratic can diluate will carry the Eighth shows how wild are the prophecies of the Anaconda organ. The only good argument ad vanced by the Miner since the campaigs began was printed the day after the democratic convention, when that news paper proved that the freak plank adopted by the democrats was the initia tive and referendum without any dis guise. Is the plan of making Mayor Davey's admlnistration an issue a scheme to In jure his future political prospects? There are no political exigencies in this c.mpalgn which demand the sacrifice of the mayor's political fortunes. There is not even a tighting chance for him to secure a vindication; the democrats can not elect six aldermen out of the eight now running for office and those who have placed Mayor Davey on the firing line know it. This morning the Anaconda organ of the democratic politicians of Butte jubl lates over the fact that Mayor Davey's administration is anl Issue and asks that six aldermen he elected to support hint In the council. If the request of the Standard, which seems to be the may or's ofllilal organ, Is not compiled with it will be plain that voters of Butte have repudiated the administration. The joint debate between the Miner and Standard over the initiative and referendum plank has been postponed indefinitely at the earnest sulicitation of the city central committee, which is try ing to keep peace in the democratic family. In the Eighth ward 1,321 voters are registered. This ward is strongly re publican; a republican was elected there last year and the year before. Alexan der Macaulay will carry it easily at the coming election. Police investigations which are de nominated a "farce" by the democratic chairman, and at which witnesses have been "fixed." are part of the record of the present administralion. The "city hall machine" has the en dorsement of the Standard yet, unfor tunately for the machine, citizens of Butte will still insist on holding an election. The ridiculous claim set up by toe democratic party that it intends taking the police department out of politics di the lamest "bluff" ever attempted in, Butte. A Drawback in Delaware. [Chicago Tritsune.] It must be borne in mind, howev..r that the election of United States seflta tors by direct vote of the people would make it more expensive for Addicks, Public Baths as Moral Agents. [Brooklyn Eagle.] By all means, let us have more public baths. The more of those institutions the less cholera, smallpox, diphtheria and 1 other expensive adveraities, and the Smore self-respect and Americanism. Our refiners would find it profitable to close their plants In this country send their machinery overseas, refine their sugar with cheap labor near the plantsa tions that produced It, and save the fright rates on the shipment of the bulky raw sugar to the United States. This proposition of the foes of reciproc ity that the small differential or protec tive duty on refined sugar be abolished is too foolish to hold for a moment the serious attention of the national law ma kers.

The parrots belonging to Madame 'atti are a source of constant amuse mrnt to everyone near them, and there could not be a greater contrast, for, w'hile one talks and sings all day long, imitating its mistress' thrills In a weird, thin voice, the other is constantly silent. The former only cost $105 and the latter $1,000, for he was represented to be the finest talking parrot alive. Results Make the Difference. [Cincinnati Commercial-Trl'bune.] Nations are like men. If they can command respect and are entitled to re spect they will receive it; otherwise they will not. It is wholly immaterial to Uncle Sam whether England begun the racket against the war or whether Ger many took the initiative. He knows if he had been licked the quarrel would have been to establish which was first to jump on him, as it now is which was first to pull the other fellow off. WEST POINT. [New York Tribune.] I The United States military bill comes up for consideration in congress in a few days, and the people who know the needs of that institution and its in adequate provisions for the demands male upon 't hope that the bill will be assed. The report of the board of tisltors for the year 1901 speaks of the barracks in which the cadets study and sleep as only a little better than "the avo'rage country poorhouse," and calls attentlon to the tact that in many re Sla'ets the build'ngs are today equipped as they were one hundred years ago, when the instltution was established. "''Mw of the buildings," the board of Visitors report, "are equipped with any of the conveniences now to be found in the average public school building in the country districts of many of the slates, and there is pressing necessity fort complete tearing down and new building up." The plans suggested by Colonel Mills, \\ho has appeared before the committee having charge of the bill, call for a thorough overhauling of the buildings With a view to accommodating the in ''cased number of cadets now allowed by law. The number will be still fur ther augmented next year. At present snfme of the little rooms in the barracks are occupied by three cadets. Foul air, dlefective drainage, crarped quarters, inperfect light and -primitive sanitary arrangements are among the features of the cadet quarters, and these have 1had a bad effect on the health of the yaoung men and an unsatisfactory influ once on their work. The plans for the aiptrovement and enlargement of the aW'ademy buildings were drawn by offi ''.r of the institution, who have felt th.at sacred traditions must be pre.

When the suggestions of Colonel Mills and Colonel Larned have been carried out West Point will still be the pictur esque place that it was in its early days. Its new buildings and additions to old structures will be in harmony with the present architectural scheme, but mod ern improvements will also have made the academy comfortable and its dormi tories and living apartments as health ful as those of other educational Insti tutions in this country. Nature has done much for West Point. The spot has be come sacred to Americans because of its history and the records of the men who have gone forth from its class rooms. The men who aim to make it architecturally and hygienically worthy of its good name should receive the sup port of congress. As High as the Gallows.
