WOO does not kuow what ho ".vants to find out.
and thai they may bc beyond tbe Jurisdiction
of the Stale by which tbs corporaiion was not
.-liartiTi'il. lt is not probable that any fair law?
yer would have been astonished by the claim
that a company chartered by New-Jersey, which
ts tva-uired by tho laws of that Stale to koop its
bo.iks always open to proper inspection at a
place of business within lhat State, could not
be expected lo surrender them at the ditnand
gf any oilier State from Maine to Washington.
As tho company would bb liable to procedures
of tho most serious character by tho State, or
by any New-Jersey shareholder. If it should fail
|0 comply with the law. Mr. Lexow nlgbl have
perceived that ho had asked what ihe company
was warranted in refusing, lt was a piece ol
claptrap, also, for some newspapers to say thal
tbs sujr.it* company "defied Ibis State" when il
cona*]tided to obey the laws of New-Jersey.
lt ls moro surprising still that anybody ima";
ines it kl of the highest importance to ascertain
what was paid for the various refill:!)"" plant'
acquired. Curiosity might prompt tbs inqulr*
what Mr. Wanamaker paid for the "Bloch nnc
business of Hilton, Hughes it Co., but the pub
lie has M particular right to demand ihat tin
details of the bargain should bo sprawled ovei
sundry columns m the newspapers. If a cor
poration lias not the right of privacy which bo
longs lg an individual or a linn, it is at loa>t tin
business of the State ohanering tho corporation
anil no* of any other State that may have euri
oslty oa ihe subject, to demand the disclosun
of business transactions. Tho bottom fact li
that it is not iuqiortant to know what was tin
allowance for different properties acquired. Th.
salient question which ir ls right to ask am
have answered is whether so unreasonable ;
profit has been charged for refining sugar tha
lt ls In restriction of trade and prejudicial to tut
public welfare, whether lbs trust has used lt
opportunity to plunder tho public, and an invesij
gating couimittoo might possibly discover this, i
it knew enough about tbg business to BSk intelll
gent questions. When Mr. Lexow loosely calle.
for the cost of refining sugar, tho answer Um
lt depends upon the quality ami condition o
the sugar relined should not have stagg.-iei
him. Ho might then have inquired what wa
the cost of producing granulated sugar from M
degree Muscovado, or from 0G-degree centrifti
gal, putting either question with sufficient defl
uiteuess to preclude evasion.
It is a highly Instructive fact that eminentl,
competent witnesses have sworn that the co*
of refining is as little ns three-eighths and a
much as three-quarters of a cent per pound, pn
sumably for different qualities. A very larg
pro*tort! >n of the sugar actually refined is of ih
lower or medium grades. Thus of S.TaOO.tXlO.OO
pounds imported in 1880, ahout I.sM^MIOlM
pounds were of 96 degrees and over, 1,328,000
issi pounds of 00 degrees or less, and the rv*
was between those two grades. Evidently th
larger allowance for cost would apply to mor
of the sugar produced than the allowance prope
for lift-degree centrifugal, whatever ihat may bi
But this at least is clear, that the eommitte
has not greatly enlightened the world aa ye
Neither mere curiosity about the private bus
ness of those who nave sold property Dor th
legitimate desire of tbe people to know whether

remarkable extent.
Every day increases Hie probability Unit
Creen* will have her way In Crete. The in
vanlon. occupation nnd technical annexation of
Iks Island have actually l.ei*n effected. Tin*
Great Power*, have made a quasl-piotest, but
are apparently not Inclined to attempt to undo
the accomplished fat, They have taken formal
liossenslon of a single town, and have blockaded
its harbor against the ..reek fleet, but have left
all the rest of the island open, so that Greek
forces have landed without hindrance actually
within sight of the blockaded port. The (.reeks
are warned Hint they must not attach the town
which the bluejackets of the Towers have oc?
cupied, but are not ordered to evacuate the rest
nf the island. That ls an arrangement to which
they will not seriously object.
The Towers are apparently disposed to con?
cede thc inevitable. Crete belongs lo (.reece,
and Grates must have lt. They probably deem
it more feasible lo placate St restrain or
coerce the Porte or in some way to prevail
upon it to let Crete go. than to thwart the whole
Greek race in its natural and Just ambition.
Or perhaps lt would be more correct to say
some of them do. (.rent Brita!* and Italy eer
t;iinly do. Their sympathy with the Creeks has
bews unmistakable from the outset. Frauen
and Austria-Hungary are non-committal, an.l
the latter has enormous interests at stake, com*
pelling her to exercise the ul most prudence;
but it is not conceivable that they should wish
to coerce the Greeks and bolster up tho Turks.
Russia's Attitude is not yet fully declAred, but
is probably liol friendly to ('.reece, and (Jer?
main- is avowedly hostile to that plucky little
But since the Towers are not unanimously in
favor of coercing (.reece, the probability ls
that (.reece will not be coerced. 'When doc?
tors disagree the patient then is free." It is
all very well fo; Germany to propose blockad?
ing the Tiraeus. If that were done it would
not undo what has already been done in Crete.
But will it, or can it. bo done? lt is scarcely
conceivable, (.rent Britain positively refused
to take part in blockading the Cretan coast last I
year. She probably will not, therefore, agree
to the blockading of the Creek coast or of a J
single (.reek port now; she cannot, without
self-stultification. And that the other Towers
will undertake such a Job without Groat Brit?
ain's co-operation or assent is not to be cred?
ited. If. then, tho Towers cannot agree to re?
store forcibly the status quo ante. Hie Malus
quo mine will naturally abide, and that ls Greek
ownership of Crete.
To the mind that feeds on yellow Journalism
as a steady diet the war situation must seem
Just now somewhat blurred and indefinite. The
Junior yellow appears lo have withdrawn its
I trained corps of word-painters, fiction writers
and inspired artists from Cuba, where they WOW
encased In expelling Spanish tyranny from the
island by bringing to bear upon lt all the re
' sources of the American language, accompanied
I by woodcuts of great power from Fox's "Book
I of Martyrs," and to have addressed Itself to
i the enterprise of conveying to a public, quiver
i iny with expectancy, the very latest and most
1 ciiiiions u tiera noes of tin* two gentlemen of
J chivalrous renown who contemplate settling
i presently at Carson, Nev., In the presence of
j larne gate-money, the momentous question,
j "Who's who?" Overcoming Its natural desire
I to do good by stealth, the Junior yellow has per
' milted the public to be informed hy means of
headlines and large type, fo that Its accuracy
cannot be questioned, inst it has copyrighted
both gladiators at enormous expense, and at
tiie sacrifice of its most cherished political con?
victions secured a monopoly of their intellc'iual
processes during the period of preparation. By
this means its readers will be enabled to enjoy
by far Hie most stirring part of that grant
tournament without incurring travelling ex?
penses or potting out gate-money.
Whether this change of venue is due to a con?
viction on the part of the younger yellow that
Christendom i? more profoundly Interested lu
the settlement of the question "Who's who?"
in Nevada than in the progress of the war for
freedom in Cuba; or from its discovery that, as
matters dow stand, if this country should de?
clare war against .**pain it would be solely on
account of the detention of the correspondent of
Its rival, the older yellow which would be sim?
ply disgusting or because ihe older yellow,
practising the amenities of yellow Journalism,
has corrupted and taken into its own service the
younger yellow's Cuban word-pa inter, ls not yet
known. The bare, cold feet is that the younger
yellow has transferred its enterprise from Cuba
to Nevada, and established in the latter liv
means of copyrights and iron-bound contract!
with the gladiators-a monopoly of news from
that Interesting contra of InteOlgenoe. it must
not be for a moment supposed tlint on this ac?
count the readers of the older yellow will be
left in darkness as to the movements, lind?
ie.mal and physical, of the heroes upon whoa
the interest of the votaries of yellow journalism
is centred. It already lias a corps of its own
word-painters on the ground, whom no copyright
nor contract can deter from saying "Good morn
i?K"' or "How are ye"/" every day to each gladi?
ator, and who know their business well enough
to put Into well-watered and amplified yellow
Journal American what their contracts compel
then to omit saying. The gladiators will, of
course, repudiate it the next day in the younger
yellow in very large type. This will donbtleSf
be kept up until the deilsive day arrives. And
the odds are about 10 to l' th.it the Ugh! between
the yellows will be more bloodcurdling and
heart-rending than tbs fight between the gladi?
Meantime the senior yellow, having secured
the services of tho younger yellow's Cuban word
painter and being in sole possession of that BeM
of enterprise, ls diligently preparing for war
It will either declare war or discharge Its word
painters and melt up its large type. The word

gentleman in whose behalf I ho uprising ls in?
voked. He makes no complaint of his treat

ure the advantages which his new relation as
prisoner of war affords him for interviewing his
raptors and "scooping" his rivals in gathering
information direct from headquarters. The
simultaneous publication of the two documents
tended to dampen tho war spirit, lt looks now
as though we should have to gel along, for tho
present at least, without any war.
So Loni Salisbury will agree, after all, l<> Ihe
Sonnie Committee's amendments to tho Arbitra?
tion Treaty: What a disappointment that must
bo lo tho advocates of tho "jamming through"
policy. For weeks they have been In men! ing be?
cause tho treaty was dead, killed, innssnored ba?
the wicked Senators. Every word of tho orig- |
inal draft was sacred, .ind if so nindi as a dot
were changed Into a dash by sacrilegious hands
Lord Salisbury would have none of H. And
then where should wo be? Throe times a day
homo one would "cry havoc .mid lot slip tho dog*
of war." and presently the Swiss Navy would
bombard New-York, or wo should llnal the
United States partitioned between San Marino
and Andorre.
Yet now it appears, through the correspondence
of Mr. Olney and Mr. Havarti, that Lord Salis?
bury does not think Uss* Senate's amendments
fatal or off' nsive or object lona hie. Ho does
not protest against ruling out of an arbitration
treaty nil manors Hint are not properly and prflC
t lei lily arbitrable. He does not object to the
dismissal of visions nnd the acceptance of facts.
He is qutio willing that tho Government of tho
United States should continue to manage its
own foreign and domestic policy without the
Intervention of an impot-nt and ineffective tri?
bunal of hybrid composition. Ile thinks it bel?
ter to establish a eo'iipotent ami effective court

fabricate a vague and indeterminate conclave
which should have neither pertinence nor po?
Grievous ns tliis may be to the would be "jam?
mers," not to say kntzonjaminors, it is not at
all surprising io mer.' ordinary men. There has
long been prevalent an opinion among those
who are neilin".* Anglotnanlaos nor Anglophobes
that Lord Salisbury is a reasonable and emi?
nently practical statesman who believes in nn
(lertakiiig what can be accomplished, rather
than what cannot be accomplished, and that,
moreover, ho and his colleagues are nt least ns
desirous as most Americans for the conclusion
of a treaty which, while benoiicial to hoih na?
tions, would bo of greater value to I'nglaiid
than to America. It ls pleasant to have thai
opinion confirmed. As for tho contrary opinion,
bold by the "?jammers"?well. Lord Salisbury is
loo good I philosopher to mind a little thing
1 ko that, if indeed li** lins boen made nwnre ol'
Hm existence.
The chief evils to be corrected Ifl the I'nlted
States Consular Service form tho topic of a pa,"
tlcularly suggestive article in tbs February
"Forum" from tho pen of Mr. \K'. W. Rockhill.
Um Third Assistant Secretary of Stale, who
writos from tbe fulness of long experience and
shrewd obsorvniion. That serious evils exist
is, of course, notorious. The*** bave been eon*
plnined of and exposed lima's without nniii
b< 1". Yet so Strangely bave they boon it-noted,
or worse, by Congress, that, tis Mr. Rockhill
reminds us. from the foundation of lin* Gov?
ernment to tbe present time only one general
law for the improvement of the service lias
been enacted. Thnt was moro than forty years
ago: lt dill not begin to touch the root of tho
matter and it has become largely inoperative.
We may weil cali stieb neglect "grange, berranee
to a groal commercial Nation an eHieieu* Con?
sular Service Is of supreme iinporlmico. Rut
instead of regarding it as such this Govern?
ment lins target* looked iipi.u lt as n medium
for pnying political debts a tint which Mr.
Iiockhill generously forbears to mention -and
fog paying them as cheaply as possible. Tho re?
sult ls, too often. Just what it naturally is
win rover cheapness is Ibo chief aim a service
so poor as to be dear nt any price.
Tho lust great evil is lu the system of ap?
pointment. Men aro chosen who have not tho
proper qualifications, who do not expect to
make a career in the service, who got tho places
as rewards for political work or because of in
fliiontlnl friendKhlps, and who aim merely to
"get as much out of lt" as they can before the
next change of Administration ends their ton?
nie. Such men. however honest and well
meaning, are moro 'prentice hands, not masters
of tin* craft, and their work cannot be satis?
factory. Tasty have little inllueneo in the con?
sular body or in the communities in which tho.;
are station.*.!. If loyal and upright, they fool
themselves handicapped, and aro called home
just when the handicap ls being removed ami
they ate becoming able to serve with credit tr
themselves and with profit to Hie Nation
Otherwise they nre apt to yield to tho tempta
tion ol' "mnkitig liny while tho sun shines," b\
pla. ing their own pecuniary Interests above th.
interests of tho Nation. For tho remedying ol
this evil Mr. Rockhill urges tin* extension of tin
Civil Service reform system, no that coiisul.u
otli. ers will be chosen oil the ground of illness
and bo permanently retained nnd successive!
promoted according to tho full hf illness mid vf
licleney of tho service they lender.
The second major evil is in the system of com
pensation. To a considerable extent the lei
system still prevails a survival of the burbar
otis farming-out style of government whiel
slid flourishes among tbe tax--at h.?rots of Mo
i rocco and China. Tho most judicious observer
I hnve repeatedly denounced lt ns vicious, dole
, teriotis to tho service and debaocfalflg lu its in
t j lluonoo. 'lhat Indiclinoiit of it is not too seven
I j Yet not only ls tho system maintained, for th
." sake of getting a cheap service, but consiila
r i and commercial ngenis, paid with fees or thoi
6 j own levying, ate appointed in unlimited nun:
- j hors, often ad nally li.mpete with the Coi;
i j sills themselves for business. For this th
- remedy required comprises tho aliolitlon 0
e ! those agents or gn-at p-duction of their nun
1 i hers; the fixing of foes by statutory schcduli
" : all of them to Iw account*.4 for lo the Treasurj
r i and the placing of tho service to tho ut mo*
- ].osslhl** extent upon n salaried basis, nnd
i- basis of salaries sufficient to induce men n
?- lirsl-rate ability to enter nnd to remnln In th
t service.
ii These nre the two chief points In Mr. KocI
i- bill's discussion. In addition, however, he urgi
o mont earnestly the need of n regular and ibm
a ! nigh system of inspection of consulates. Vern
nco tho sending of n. mnn nround the world d
sneh an errand was regarded as n mixture r
fane nnd Junketing. Klthor the inspector wn
Incompetent or his work was nullified hy fal
ure to execute his recommendations. But wlu
can be done in this direction was shown lat
year, when -.onie adequate Inspection wns un?
dertaken, with gratifying results. Flagrant
abuses were ShttSd, improvements were made
lu Hie service, and a saving to shippers effected
live times as great as the whole cost of inspec?
tion. Mr. Rockhill thinks the most Important
stop toward the improvement of the service
made in twenty years was the Kxeciitive order
of September Un. !??.*>. placing a large proportion
..r consular places ail between$1,000 andEVSOO
annual pay under Civil Service rules. It was
generally recognized ns such, and credit was
ungrudgingly given lo .Mr. Cleveland for so far
repudiating the spoils system of his own party
ami so far coining over to the Civil Service re?
form principles of the Republican parly. Mr.
Rockhill deems il possible/or Ihe Kxeciitive to
go still further, so as to minimize, if not ab
soluiely lo end. the evils complained of. Ter
haps so. Hut il would, from many points of
view, be far mon* satisfactory fer Congress ind
tho Tresident to co-operate in the matter. To
the general pilbil.- an act of OongreM seems
more authoritative than an Kxeciitive order,
and li is obviously more apt to be permanent
.?uni lo be kept consistently in force. Mr. Kock
hill raC-gnlaSB, Indeed, that Congress luis a
proper share In the work of reform, and al?
though his Bribie deals Chiefly With the Kxecii?
tive aspects of the case, lt is, ill effect, a strong
appeal for united action of the two branches
of Government io establish and maintain a Con?
sular Service worthy of what is destined to be
the greatest commerclul Nation of the world.
An especially rommendable feature of the ath?
letic agreement between Yale and Harvard ls
the provision requiring ail contest! except boat
ra.'is to take place on college gRNUItis. This ls
a step which has been zealously ad voca ted for
several yeara by many graduates, the sincerity
of whose Interest in college sports is shown by
their efforts to eradicate thc evils which they
have developed and which have threatened to
bring them into general disrepute. It will prob?
ably do more than any other single regulation
C0UM do 10 exclude professionalism, check irra?
tional excitement and restore the wholesome
spirit of simple college rivalry lu tbs athletic
contests of Yale and Harvard; while under the
Influence of their example others will almost
inevitably adopt the same policy. The Tribune
has repeatedly said thal college j.r.ninds were
the righi pisces for college sports, and we heart?
ily congratulate tin* men who have brought a
long negotiation tu a satisfactory conclusion
upon this article of their agreement
The restricting of college sports to college
loams has been opposed in some quarters on the
plea that it would largely diminish gale receipts.
Nu doubt it will have that consequence, and lt
will bi- a very good thing; in our opinion. The
present scale of expenditure may be such as to
require the proceeds ?.f a football game iii
New-York attended by 30/100 or 40,000 persons,
but if that is the fact ii furnishes a good
reason fer eluting down expenses, not for keep?
ing up the revenue. It is one of the evils of tho
present system of management thsl it is exceed?
ingly extravagant. Such lavish outlay for the
maintenance nf athletic teams is not essential
to the highest proficiency, and if it were it would
still be objectionable for various reasons, and
especially because it has great Influence In giv?
ing to college sports a place in the estimation of
Student! Which Ihey do not deserve. They are
too spectacular by far. and if a loss of revenue
should render necessary the adoption of simpler
and more frugal ways, that change would not
be the least salutary consequence of thc Yale
Harvard agreement..
