A resJ4eat of tiis city mi^lit hare greatly

#*antr in the local skies yesterday, Many a
0240 -n-as tempted to carry his umbrella to his
place of business in spite of the forecast of
"fair we*t£er.~ The gentle inward drift of air
from the tea suggested the tog of dog days, as
did tiie cißbarrftssiueot to navigation- When
«sSfi learned that •'thick weather" prevailed at
Bloc3s laiaci twenty miles or more away from
the >"ew-EDgland soast. he would probably
bare been more than ever convinced that the
alter theory wae correct On the other band,
his nostrils indicated smoke. Maine aud the
Adjrondacks were too far away to affect the
raetrepollfi, but there were extensive forest
tires right out on Long Island,' only thirty or
forty ■SUSS eway. Moreover, almost the whole
aC New-England, a large part of. Eastern and
Northern NeTi*-York, and even portions of
Canada, where other fires have existed, like
wi&e reported exceptional darknesa. On the
•trLole, it i& safe to say that both 6moke and
psrtltilly condensed vapor had a share in pro
dudii£ the phenomenon, though the former
crgbajjjy contributed most largely to tii«» oh-
Mured result
If th« question arose In any one'e mind re
garding tbe abruptness of the change In a single
nJcL: it wonld^>e easy to dispose of such
doubts, at least eVlar as Netr-York City is con
<^fri4! C The w}yd 03 Wednesday came from

The opposite quarter. Under the former condl
rigns smote could not get here from Long I*l
and, while the latter were favorable to Its
translation B9 a few hours. At Sprlnrfe'd.
Mast., there was uncertainty as to the source,
bat none as to the character of tie trouble, lx?
cauf-c there was a deposit of ashes on window
tills and other eligible places. Inasmuch as
Portland, Me., bejran to suffer on Wednesday, it
!s easy to see why Boston should be bothered
ce^t day. They are net much over one hundred
mll& apart inAeeA, York County. M«., which
hns abounded in Enaoke for days, lies between
the two cities.
The Jor«st fires, of which this widespread
pall Elves impressive evidence Us*| now be
cone so uuiofrtne and peoeral as to cause great
folicitudft. They are reported from Long lei
• and, the Catckills and Adlrondaeks in this
j State, from the vicinity of Montreal, from
i Northern Vermont and many parts of Maine.
Xo doubt less formidable ones exist iv intei 1 -
I veiling districts, but these appear to be tbo
chief centre* of mischief. It is estimated that
i the \>j^ in -Maine uiouo baa already amounted
ti> about $1,000,000, and the damage there may
well have* been paralleled in Kortbern New-
York. Besides timber of great value, several
cottages and hotels baTe been destroyed in the
Adirondack?, and many similar buildings? are
in more or less danger. When ouce auiiiciently
wide tracts of -forest are brought under scien
1 tific Management, impassable belts may be cot

expedient way not prove a"n infallible safe
guard, but it will go far toward preventing tbe
spread of Ores. As it Is, almost the only hope:
of checking a conflagt-iitiou liko those now in
progress is based on the chance of a heavy
rain. I: is the drouth Of the last six or seven

Tho> controversy over the question of declar
ing for President Roosevelt's nomination next
year having been suitably and harraojiinu?ly
setUed in advance, the Ohio convention as
sembled in a spirit which made the satisfactory
transaction of its business easy and agreeable.
As Republicans in all parts of the country will
rejoice to observe, Senator Hauna bus given
BO one a chanco to say that, having beeu con
vinced against his will, he is of the sam- opin
ion .-till His speech as temporary chairman
of the convention, already printed in our di*
patches, contained so Just and hearty a tribute
to the President that tic cannot refrain from
reproducing that part of it:
Republicans to-day '•an congratulate them
ee]vea that in the direction of national affairs
they have realized all they hop«d for and all
they expected in the administration of Theo
dore Roosevelt. We look back but a feve
months, when that heroic youne man, standing:
undo- the gloom of that awful tragedy nt
Buffalo, feeling and appreciating the reaponai
bilitiee which had come upon h'm, and in the
presence of the American people, made that
sacred promise to them that, to the best of his
ability, with his heart full of desire, it should
be his aim to carry out the policies of President.
McKjnley. Arid how w^ll he has succeeded we
all Know and we all feel, as this convention will
express m appreciation of that administration.
We all realize to the youns:, heroic President
ip due, as coming- from his heart, the most
patriotic, unselfish and energetic devotion to
the interests of the people and th<? principles ••■
his party. Standing in the presence of the
American people ami hearing words, the
solemn import of which indelibly impressed it
pelf upon all who stood Dear him. no one can
doubt bis motives or even his ambition. No one
i an place him in the category of men whose am
bition is greater than their patriotism.
The ringing applause which greeted that fer
rent oulopy sbowod how perfectly it reflected
the feelings of the convention and the (Treat
1 aodienee which beard It. Th« platform unani-
I mously adopted yesterday, giving official ex
; pression to the Senator's sentiments, testified
to the President's devotion to duty and the
practical wisdom with which he has conducted
the national government; declared that he had
shown himself worthy in every"- way of being
j elected by tha pt-opje to the office to which he
succeeded under gloomy mid difficult circum
j stances, ami joined in the parry's unbroken de
! mand for bis nomination next year. It was pe
culiarly Incumbent on Ohio Republicans to
make au early acknowledgment of the scrupu
lous fidelity with which the Presjdeut has ful
filled his promise to carry out the policies of
McKini.\v. and that might have been sufficient
if the question of commending him to the ac
ceptance of th(» National convention a year
hence bqd not been raised. Having been
raided. only one answer was appropriate, as
Senator Haass clearly perceived when lie had
Siren Hie matter due attention. It is greatly to
his credit, not that he comprehended the situ
ation without long delay, but that when the
time faun- to speak far the party in his State
and for himself he spoke with a sincerity be
yond suspicion.
The Columbus convention, faithful to the
truditionfl of Ohio Republicanism, has done its
appointed work in a straightforward ujaunc-r,
1 offering no advantage to the cxiemy and con
firming anew a lung established claim to tiie
confidence of the party iv every State.
Mr. Gladstone would begin a db?cus>aiuii of
political economy wit]} the assumption that
protection in any form was essentially and
necessarily stupid, illogical and immoral; and
then upon the basis of that premise would
amiably invite a dispassionate and impartial
consideration of the relative merits of protec
tion and free trade. We are uut sure but that
tome American economists, even sotno of the
protectionist persuasion, are inclined to ap
proach at len».t some phases of the subject
with a similar lack of openmindednesg. Es
pecially is this the case when the possibility of
Great Britain's conversion from free trade to
protection is suggested. We are told in the
most cocksure manner that of course that ia
absolutely impossible.- Protection is the best
policy for this and for all other countries, but
the United Kingdom must forever stick to fre«
trade. Thus '"The Chicago Evening Post" de
scribes the notiou that .Mr. Chamberlain's pro
posals are a tribute to the American system of
protection as "puerile and silly" and as "child
ish twaddle." and declares that "stanch Ameri
"can protectionists have fully recognized the
"economic impopeibiliry. of a protective eyptem
"under the material, climatic, industrial and
"commercial conditions prevailing in the United
Why? It may be that all thia is so. It may
be that protection is imnossible in the country
which invariably practised it down to two gen
erations ago. It may be that to turn away.
from free trade in the least degree would auto
matically abrogate Magna Charta aud destroy
the Protestant Succession. But we really can
not help wondering why. The United King
dom Is not quite unique. There are other Euro
pean countries in very much the same "ma
"terial. climatic, industrial and commercial
"conditions." They do not practise free trade.
They have elaborate protective tariffs. And
they prosper under the protective system. Why
should not Great Britain do the name'? What
ii there Jn the air mi soil or water, or what is
the speciSe bacillus, that maUes a protective
tariff possible in the countries on one side of
the "silver streak'" and impossible in. a country
on the other fide? Germany is strongly protecr
tioidft. Yet In many conditions she closely re
sembles the United Kingdom. Like the latter
she is/a manufacturing and commercial coun
try rathn- than an agricultural one. Like the
United kingdom she does not produce enough
food for ncr own people, but has to import vast
quantities of bread-stuffs, meats and other pro*
visions froyi abroad. Yet she levies, heavy
tariffs upon these things— upon her imports of
$70,000,000 worth of wheat. .$20,000,000 worth
of barley. $30,000,000 worth, of cons. $22,000,000
worth of rye. She has to buy nearly $20,000.
000 worth cf horse* a year, but she levies a
tariff upon them. She buys more than $20,000
009 worth of woollen yarn a year, end collects
a heavy tariff upon it She buys 510.Q00.000
worth of iron a year from Great Britain, anil
Imposes a heavy duty upon It Yet with all
this tariff upon articles of food and materials
for manufactures, we are assured that protec
tionist Germany Is beating free trade Great
Britain in the markets of th« won.l. Why
should protection succeed In Germany and be
impossible in ihv, United Kingdom? Why
should protective tariffs be possible and profit,
able ami commendable in Belgium and Hoi
land, m«cb more densely populated countries
than Groat Britain, and. like her. essentially
industrial and commercial, and yet be absurdly
impossible in the United Kingdom?
It may be that SIMM people have become po
accustomed to repeating, unthinkingly and
parrotlike, that protection is impossible in Great
Britain that they have actually come to believe
it a* one of the eternal and immutable verities..
It may be that some keenly realize what a
good thine British free trade is for this coun
try aad for all others that have anything to si-11
to the United Kingdom, and so, the wish being
rather to the. thought, insist that such advan
tageous conditions— for them— must be main
tained. But we cannot regard either of these
or any other that is conceivable to M aw an ade
quate answer to the question why free trade Is
accessary and protection Is impossible in Great
Britain. Until such adequate answer is forth
coming we must, even at peril of being "guilty
of childish twaddle." regard the present move
ment in the United Kingdom as a tribute to
and in a measure ■ vindication of the Ameri
can system of free trade within the empire and
protection against the outside world.
The "Congo State 'Mimas" of which we
spoke the other day scorns indeed to be at
hand, though its precise, form is not yet de
termined. It Is announced that Kins Leopold
and several high functionaries of the Congo
State are going to London to deal with the
charges of inhuman treatment of the natives
and effect a general settlement of Congo State
affairs. It is, as we said, time for something
of the Fort to be done. The charges against
the Congo administration are too grave and too
authoritatively made to be disregarded. They
deserve the prompt attention of the King him
self, and it is gratifying to know that they are
receiving it. That they are true is, of course,
by no means certain; surely not that the gov
ernment is responsible for or sanctions the evil
deeds reported. But if they are false or grossly
exaggerated, as we sincerely trust they will
prove to be, that fact should be made clear
as soon as possible and on unquestionable
authority. '
TLere is. indeed, another side to the case.
Thus. Sir Harry Johnston, the eminent Brit
ish Commissioner In Uganda, after visit
ing the Congo declares that be found ibe
natives cheerful, happy and prosperous, and
rejoicing in the excellent administration of
the Belgians; and he suggests that the
atrocities row and then complained of are
probably committed by Arab and Manyema
slave bunters whom the Belgians nave not yet
been Hble to subdue. The Her. Mr. Orcnfcl!,
of the Baptist Missionary Society, pronounces
the administration of the Congo to be "infinitely
more beneficent" than that of any nntiv« gov
crnmejit lie has l:nown, and tin; Rev, Mr. Vor
p«r, of the American Presbyterian Mission,
says that the reports of barbarities ore exag
gerated, that tbr- few isolated cases of bad con
duct are chiefly to ho (-harped against subordi
nate officers, and that the administration as a
whole is well i Mentioned and efficient. Many
other testimonies and opinions to like effect
have been given, indicating the desirability
of waiting for a. fair hearing of both bides be
fore passing judgment upon the case.
It is quite possible, and is greatly to be hoped,
that the coming climax or crisis in Congo af
fairs, if It shall indeed come, will prove to be
favorable to the administration of that coun
try. The Congo government may be able to dis
prove many of the tales of horror, and to show
that it in taking gteps to prevent the repetition
of any improper acts that may have occurred.
It is well known that it lr done mqcli
for elrilization and humanity. That a rindica*
riou of his stewardship will result from King
Leopold's visit to London is earnestly to be de
sired. The world has no wish to believe tales
of horror, which it Jjnows are often published
without sufficient baste, and it certainly would
greatly retrret to nee this Interesting experiment
of civilization in the heart of Africa brought to
a failure or seriously discredited.
Thousands of professional men and women
and school children have occasion to consult
newspaper BIOS In search of information. Per
haps they wish precise details of a fact which
in a general way they remember. Perhaps they
wish to investigate thoroughly some subject
which they have not carefully studied before.
One of a dozen other motives may inspire the
attempt. They will then go to a library for
bound volumes of a paper which, on account of
its reputation for accuracy and conservatism,
they feel they can trust. Having found these,
however, they are liable to bo confronted with a
new difficulty. To look at random through a
file, without a guide as to date, page and col*
umn, is like looking for a. needle in a haystack,
It consumes an enurmous amount of time. It is
an apt-ailing task to rind what one is looking for
without an index. The fact that Th« Tribune
prints one eiery year affords an admirable rea
son for keeping and binding that paper for
future reference. The two together enable a
person to study current history with an eaee
Otherwise impossible. When one has had a little
experience with such resources, he is sure to
take advantage of them again and again.
To those who know what The Tribune Index
is it will be good nev's that the volume fur liKKi
is now to be had. It contains 479 pages. As
usual, foreign affairs are kept separate from
domestic. Thus, if one wished to read up on the
coronation in London last summer, he would
first turn to the back of the volume, look for
"Great Britain" and then for "King," where he
would find about one hundred and fifty -efer
ences to the new ruler of the British Empire. Of
course, he would know better than to seek clews
to events in Porto Rico, Hawaii and the Philip
pines In that part of the book, but would pro
ceed as with any other strictly American topic.
This and other features of the classification of
references will quickly commend themselves to
critical people. An even stronger reoommrnda
tion is the fulness with which those matters are
covered In which educated and thinking people
are interested. Over a page Is given up to. legal
decisions, four to religious news, four and a half
to strikes (not counting two more about labor
unions), six to colleges, and three to steamships.
All important book reviews and notices of musi
cal and dramatic events can be traced by the
same means. Further hints of tha completeness
of the work are derived from th« statement that
there are forty-four items under the heading
"Volcanoes," and 115 under '•!>legra.phy. Wire
lcßa." Many a man would be willing to pay the
price <3f this Jade*, SI. for the service It would
render in running down a solitary detail. Li
braries cannot afford to be without it.
An ent«rprlaing cleric in an up-State town haa
caused the Judicious to grieve and some of hi?
brethren to envy by havinc the city billed with
posters advertising h!« sermons, after th*» man

Instructive chiefly because it shows the? &ensa

Hi» aim v to entertain, to attract the attention
of the flippant and thoughtless, while he wins

frankness of this particular so-called teacher oZ

The Metropolitan company persists in violat

Th«» British Government having practically
accepted the American plan for the payment
of the Chinese Indemnity, all the other powers
are reported to be more and more inclining to
do the same. If they do. It will be a triumph
not merely tor tha American diplomacy which
already lias so much to its credit in China, b'lt.
also for Justice und for practical business sense.
As for the intimation that America can afford.
to deal thus generously with China because the
indemnity claimed by her considerably exceeds
h«r actual losses, there Is probably not a bit
of truth in it: but if there were, we know of no
other indemnity grabbing power that Is entitled
to cast even a tiny pebble at this country on
that account.
The condition of the atmosphere yesterday

The report from Russia th*t a law has been

Jews will henceforth be permitted to acquire

matter of fact. 101 towns «re a painfully i»mall

The hot proposition that because of last Sat
urday's disputed game of baseball Yale ought
to sever athletic relations with Princeton has
failed to command general approval. Neverthe
less, If the Princeton mansger nt a rrUtcal
moment sent .a strong batter to the plate in
place of the weak one whose turn it was, an
apology is clearly due. The young men who are
supposed to have, inherited Jonathan lid«-ar<is's

A discovery of considerable Interest to British
a*it!quari*» baa been made in the River Tyne. Th«?
Commissioners' divers, working near the Swing
Bridge at Newcastle, found a Roman altar in the
river bed. The altar is about four feet in height and
in good preservation. On the front of It, In a
moulded panel, 1? a representation of an anchor, aT! <j
the dedication reada: "Ociano L*gf. VI. VI. P. T."
The translation of thia, K. Oliver Ileslop. cf the
Newcastle Societies of Antiquaries, tells us. Ib: "To

of two which were probably in the same place of
devotions, for a counterpart of It. found some years
ago in this locality, was dedicated to Neptune, and
bore In a panel the trident and entwined dolphin of
the deity.

been floating around the Eastern sea. The Fannie
Kerr Is a four-masted bark of 2.-126 ton?, built of
steel. 6h« left Newcastle in April, HOB, with a
cargo of coal for San Francisco. She rounded th.9
