It dawns upon *ucb a spectacle as man seldom has seen before. Webster described the earth as circled with one continuous and unbroken strain of the martial airs of England. To-day It is circled with halfmasted flags and sable streamers and all the trappings and the suits of woe. Not more than once, If even once, in history has the world's mourning been so cen eral as it Is to-day. Our own whole nation pauses from its vocations and gives up the day to solemn commemoration. In scarcely less measure 50 does our sister nation of Great Brit ain, from King to humblest commoner paying a tribute of sympathy for which no precedent nor parallel is to be found. The French Re public halts in its high festivities and surren ders the day to mourning. The other nations of Europe, and those of Asia, of Africa, of South America^ of far away Australia and the isl ands of the sea. all join as never before in a sentiment which makes the whole world kin. <»rateful. indeed, is it to this stricken laud thus to bo sustained with sympathy, and noble is it in those who lay aside nil former rivalries in this generous outburst of fraternal fellowship. It will not be forgotten. The causes of this scarcely precedented dis play of sympathy are varied, but are not diffi cult to divine. The personal character of the man we mourn and the peculiarly "deep damna tion of his taking off" may be named conspicu ously among them. There Is, too. the wider knowledge of McKlnley which the world pos sessed than Of almost any of his predecessors. Each year sees International communications made*- closer and more intimate, and Interna tional knowledge of men and affairs made fuller and >-•:•,. perfect. There is also the large part which MeKinley played In international affairs. So other President has touched the world, or under no other administration has this nation touched the world, at >.. many points as lie and his. The world-wide interest in the financial Issuf upon which ho so largely came into. office. as well as In the tariff policy with' which he 1.-. . thitherto been Identified, the war with Spain, the acquisition of outlying territories in various part? of the world, the leading part taken in the congress nt The Hague, the action of American troops and of American diplomats in China, the movement for a Pan-American Congress— these and other things set all the world to thinking of the United States and of Its President. Th*> phrase "world power" is hark-i)#»ye<«. yet it indicate* in a measure the chance in American status which from some points of view was effected under McKinloy's administration. No wonder that the world takes greater note of this nation's affairs than ever before. In one other sense there Is a peculiar l)ond •f sympathy between the United States and ttie rp*t of the.world— or at least the great na tion* of Europe. For the first time in our his tory we. are bereft of a Chief of State through the' sane Infernal agency which ban hitherto bereft some and threatened all of them. Blind ly, . fatuously, indolently, this nation dreamed that it whs exempt from the menace of anarchy. It could pive shelter to dynamiters and assas -ins with impunity, with never a fear that their infernal arts would hp turned against it. From that fool's dream m are now rudely awakened. This nation sees, and the whole world sees, that the murder cult called anarchy cannot be trifled with or tolerated here any more than elsewhere. ness Whose profession is murder make no dis crimination between the American President and the Russian Czar. In the realization of that common affliction the United States and Russia and France and Austria-Hungary and Italy are all united. In appreciation of its menace Si nations of the world are at last kin. This nation will not move backward by a single step from the proud place among the nations in which it was confirmed through the administration of William MeKinley. But it will do well, on this most solemn day in all its history, to realize the responsibilities of that pj a( . l t he responsibilities to law and order which have been so tremendously emphasized in these last few clays. Nothing can ever make this less than I land of liberty. Nothing should ever be permitted to degrade it into a land of license. It has already been drawn too near the latter Slate. There has been too much toler ance of anarchy and its ways, not, we may be lieve, through any sympathy with it, but rather through a fatuous pride in being superior to its menace, or through sheer civic laziness and un willingness to assume the task of extirpating the evil. From that tear wet sepulchre in Can ton there comes to-day a solemn warning, which should penetrate every honest heart In all the land and which should rouse the nation of world leading rank to take the world's leader ship in assuring that, so far as human wisdom and human energy can effect it. this latest tragedy of anarchy shall be the last. V 0 CHANGE IX THE CABINET. President Roosevelt's declaration just prior to his takin? the ontl. of sflVee .it Buffalo that it would be his aim to maintain absolutely un broken the policy of President McKinley for the peace, the prosperity and the honor of the coun try was universally accepted as perfectly sin cere. Hardly any man so placed at such a time could have taken that pled** with less thnn all hip mind and heart, and nobody has for a mo ment suspected Mr. Roosevelt of a mental reser vation impairiu!; its validity. Nevertheless, his prompt and successful effort to retain the ser vices of all the members of his predecessor's Cabinet is a welcome reassurance, not of fideliry to his promise, but of discernment as to the best means of carrying It into effect. His ward was s sufficient guarantee of his intention, but some apprehension concerning the future might have lingered if he had preferred to make im portant dMUges in his official family, or if the late President's constitutional advisers had been unwilling to keep their places. The country has sustained a profound shock, and foreipn t:ovennnents have necessarily con templated its consequences with keen solicitude. For the time beinir jrrief at home and sympathy abroad are the controlling sentiments, miuffle.l With a solemn pride and exaltation of spirit at the spectacle of a great nation calmly and con fidently confronting a direful emergency. Yet there may have been danger that when the ten sion of feeling relaxed and the inevitable re action s?t in doubts would arise to breed de spondency among our own people and misun .!. i standings among our neighbors. If such a possibility existed it has been averted, so far as official action could avert it, by President Boose velt's immediate appeal io Secretary Hay and his oeOeagwes for their continued assistance in the government and their patriotic response. National policies do not Invariably depend for tfcelr success upon their intrinsic quality alone. UM estimate widHy placed upon the instru ments chosen to promote them may be an im portant factor in the case. It is conceivable that 'i reorganization of the Cabinet at this time might have encouraged a disposition to look too curiously for signs of a departure from the path marked out by President McKinley. and even to manufacture evidence of innova tions. That contingency, remote, we believe, yet not to !)*» ignored, has been anticipated by President Roosevelt. The continuity of a great administration remains unbroken. It is a timely and universally acceptable fulfilment of his pledge. The President has been not only wise but fortunate. Ctrenmstanees might have prevented him from accomplishing his desire. Indeed, it was commonly supposed that some members of the Cabinet would feel constrained to insist on reTirinc. even if he should earnestly entreat thorn to remain. Their unanimous consent to continue at their posts is not only an assurance to the country and the world of the govern ment's steadfast adherence to tlie course which h.-iK so signally advanced the honor and pros perity of the nation, but a worthy example of ihnt line civic spirit which is essential to the maintenance of free institutions. Tin: exd of the steel strike. With tlio opening of the mills at MeKeesport the steel strike may ho said to have finally ended, oven though a few plants are still closed and some of the steel workers still hold out against the inevitable. McKeesport was the strikers' stronghold. There they had the '•up port of the authorities in pursuing a lawless course,, and their complete surrender there marks the collapse of Shaffer's ambitious cam paign for power. Ills leadership has robbed the Amalgamated Association of practically all au thority as an arbiter of the labor situation in the steel industry. Not only is it left weaker by far than when the strike began, hut weaker than it would have been if any one of the offers made by the manufacturers during the progress of the strike and rejected by the union ists had been accepted. The association loses Its standing in several mills, and henceforth will not be regarded as representing the steel workers of the country. It has lost the privilege of the annual confer ence with the employers, a much more serious blow, for that status as negotiator between the companies ami their men was one of its chief sources of power over the latter, and em of its chief instruments for obtaining conces sions from the former. It lias also lost, mo«t serious of all. the goodwill and respect of the great body of its own members, as well as all prestige and influence over other workers in iron, steel and tin, who might naturally be in clined to join it. or at least sympathize with it and follow its lead. Nothing but a broken and discredited organization is left, which must spend years to "regain confidence, recruit mem bers and accumulate funds before it will again be in position to exorcise any large influence oven along wise and helpful lines upon the fortunes of labor It is .i melancholy conclusion, which even those who more severely condemn the reck less and unreasonable course of Shaffer must re gret. Yet it seems to be the almost inevitable late of great labor organizations as they have been j managed. Vain, ambitious or unscrupu lous leaders use them in tin- day of their power and prestige to enforce extravagant and vii- Just demands; employers who have boon will ing to see them grow In influence are forced into opposition for self-preservation, and the end is a labor union wreck. Labor organiza tions ought to have a place of usefulness in in HEW-TOBK DAILY JRTBTTfE. THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 19. 1901. dustry. Wisely managed, with due respect to rights of free workers sad the rights of em ployers to saaaage their own property, they may be of ggaal service to workmen, and. In ¦pita of their abuse*, they undoubtedly have been. The prevailing willingness, however, of the men to let their organizations he used by leaders for selfish and even unlawful purposes has undoubtedly driven many persons who naturally sympathize with all efforts to improve the condition of their fellows to regard the trades union as in itself an evil and a menace to order. It ought, not to I.e. and would not be. with conservative and wise management. A few conspicuous exceptions show that large labor organizations can be conservative forces, instead of being potential agents of industrial disruption whose growth is to be feared. KINO RIcnARIVS DILEMMA. Kins RtdWfd the Absentee tnds his domain somewhat disturbed by rebellion., His people In two of Us dukedoms have refused to accept tlie lords he wished to set over them. His personal friend and partner in Ills private business of working for kia own pocket all the time. Duke Meyer, was «ent by him to take possession of the forfeited estates of Duke Hopper in the north. The latter nobleman, however, refused to bow to the -will of his sovereign, raised an army of yeomen in the district, and completely routed the Staffs favorite. Just how he can make peace with the King and be recognised as a loyal subject Is not clear, but he is undoubt edly in possession of the lief and a knight lo be reckoned with. The quarrel between Dyke Potey and Duke Divver in the south is of even more serious concern to Kins Richard. During King Rich ard's absence on the crusades some of his min isters and nobles, as is the way with the vassals of absentees, conspired against his peace for their own purposes. Lord Constable Devery and Duke Snllivnn made themselves the head of a group of nobles in whose train nil the thieves and gamesters and lewd persons In the kingdom travelled. From them vast wealth -svas amassed. Before the King's return these men put up Duke Foley to invade the territory of Duke Divver. one of Richard's faithful followers. The King's regular troops, under the command of the Lord Constable, were sent against him. and the dis trict was also harried by the irregular criminal bands that look to Duke Siilliv;ui for protection from justice. A great battle was Imminent just as King Richard landed a the kingdom. At his first court audience he showed his displeasure at the Lord Constable and sharply rebuked Duke Sullivan for daring to invade the estates of a fellow vassal dwelling in the King's peace. But the rebellious nobles continued their war fare on Duke Divver. and have completely rooted him and set Duke Foley in his place be fore the Kiug's eyes, and now they defy him to dispossess their tool in the old dukedom of Divver or to punish them for their intrigue. Richard the Absentee is now confronted by a serions situation. If he tolerates such defiance he himself may soon become I puppet in the hands of powerful nobles, sad if tie tries to pnn- Isa them they may break into open rebellion nywtaf* himself and leave the kingdom a prey to foreign enemies. The Lord Constable already tramples ortr sll UM King's subjects. His nom inal superior. Lord .Marshal Murphy, he treats with contempt; the Regent Lord Vaa Wyck. has been complacent to his domination, and he has boldly gone about the kingdom encouraging ruffians, maltreating officers who tried to make them observe the law. sneering at those who preached righteousness, and attaching in per sonal loyalty to himself the criminal bands which have hitherto paid the privy purse for liberty to overrun and oppress the populace. King Ri'har 1 must soon decide whether he will let this Lord Devery be master of the kingdom. ui'l even when here reign without ruling. Of fneo the Issue, charge the Lord Constable and Duke Sullivan with treason and chop off their heads, if they do not Instead depose him and seize his crown. . BACK TO THE DRIEST. In more than one American city of no moan rank Chinamen who have been tolling for many a year and living chiefly on rice are preparing to return to the scenes of their childhood with the savings which they have set aside from the money earned In this country. The longing to see their fatherland again and to spend their declining years in conditions and surroundings from which they derive more satisfaction than seems to - them possible of attainment in America has become a consuming flame in their hearts. The Dragon Kingdom has been abased and humiliated in the eyes of th* nations, and Its pride has been cast down. Minions of its peo ple are almost on the verge of starvation. The recent floods have been frightfully destructive of life and of properly. Taxes will be higher in China in the future than they have been in tho past. The conditions of life in the most populous country of the jrlobe are not alluring in the judgment of unbiassed observers. Never theless, disciples of Confucius who have been prospering under the Stars and Stripes in th« Chinese quarters of New-York and other im portant American cities are not willing to re main hero permanently. Of course, there are exceptions to this rule, but it was long ngo chronicled that the dearest wish of the most successful merchants and others in our Chinese colonies was to go back to the Orient and re main there after they had got together money enough to provide for their old age in the country from which they came. In the Knst their lot may be uncertain. They may be sub jected to exactions almost intolerable, and op pressions and troubles which they would never encounter in this republic may be heaped upon them. Yet go they will. The old home culls to them, and they shut their ears to other voices. Nothing can" persuade them to abide here to the end, if their possessions are suf ficient to enable them to retirn to the land of the mandarins with the possibility of self-sup port. Even New-York, most cosmopolitan and most hospitable of great New World capitals. cannot prevail upon them to tarry here. This movement back over the Pacific suggests more than one theme for study. In what cycle of Cathay was the Bltn-St. im provement begun? Will it be finished before the millennium? If Divvcr and Foley had each dealt the other so deadly a political upper out that neither would ever he heard of again in municipal af fairs, that knockout blow would ha\e been more- useful thnn any on record in the history ¦>f prizefights. Grade crossings must be given up. Although the -population of Chicago is only about one half that of New- York, the list of fatal acci- ; dents on railroad tracks is longer in the great ' Western capital than it is here. But the ex planation Is not far to seek. Over the enormous stretches of the old prairies which are now i included within the borders of America's. second city -:.a multitude of steam cars upon many j great railroad lines Is flying every day and every night, and grade crossings are almost countless. In New-York the electric cars roll up a fright ful death rate, Inn -the principal steam rail- i roads, with the exception of the New-York Cen- ! tral, do. not touch the heart of the town as th- do in Chicago. Will the automobile <omp«titinn from New- , York to Buffalo be followed by important ira- ' provementa In the roads over which th# chauf feurs travelled If SO. the Journey will not have been made in vain. Walk about our streets and avenues and see how badly the task of restoring the pavements after the filling of excavations has been botched. The Instances of inexcusable carelessness on the part of contractors are numerous. And they are offensively conspicuous also. Plans for new theatres in this city are well nish as numerous as dreams of castles In Spain. and in many cases not much more substantial. But of new hotels and apartment houses pro jected in real earnest there is a wonderfully long list. Brooklyn was at one time known all over this country, and in foreign lands also, as the City of Churches. New-York ere this cen tury is far advanced may be celebrated from zone to zone above- all other great capitals ns the City of Hotels. Is Crcker talking to Pevery as bluntly ;is Devery talks to policemen who come before him? Croker has ample reason for plain Spsses to the man whose vulgarity and profanity al the trials of patrolmen have disgusted decent people so much that his utterances will surely cost Tammany no small number of votes. Mr. Croker has a lurid vocabulary of his own. A dialogue between Croker and Devery. In which both gave free rein to their tongues, would be eminently unfit to print. ..O ORATEt WHERE IS THY fMTOsTTf" In bitter, voiceless, unavailing Brief, .
