THE PHES10t:\T AT CBAUTAUQUA. President Itoosevelt's ("hautauqua speeoh deals witli two main features of his present policy. The attitude taken by the administration ln Santo Domingo has still to be approved hy the Senate. Its programme for regulntlng railroad rates and assertlng fuller federal control over interstate commerce has still to he lndorsed by Congress. Properly and helpfully. theti. the President continues to present the argumnts and motives which have itnpelled him to sanotion a friendly receivership in Santo Domingo and to urge legislation ending railroad rate abuses and freeing trade from the restraints put upon it hy lawless trusts and eombinatlona. As to Santo Homingo, It i? hard to see how any one can dissent from the President's eon clusions. His interpretatlon of the Monroe Doc trine and of our duties under It ls dear and logioal. We cannot assert that doctrine aml then seek by casuistry to avoid its rtwiaa queuees. We guarantee the republics south of us against territorial apoliatimi. We have an? nounced our purpose to proteet them from Euro pean aegreaslon. But we cannot undertako to ahsolvo them from all aceountability for their eondui't. If they are drawn into conflicts with Kuropean states and we deny these European states tbe right to territorial iudemniflcatinn for torts comiuitted. we must see to it that some other niode of settlement Is supplied. We nnist pay aome price for the right to say to Bttrope that tlie Amerieas are no longer open to eolonir.atlon or eonquest. We must insist that our southern neighhors square their accounts with Europe honorably and in good faith. For the protec? tion which these southern republics aocept from us they, too. are bouiul to pay a priee* and that price is tlie aeknowledginent of their duty to settle thelr dlsputes with Europe on a basis whlch is fair ond equitable. If. then. we are appealed to by n southern republic to adjust its forelgn tiulebtedness. especiallv under eircumstanees which threaten a r?*sort to ' paclflc blockades" and a seizure of oustoms and (ustom houses, w? are only doing the rational and neighborly thing in tnstituting n friendly receivership. From thls point of view the President rightly defends his policy iu Santo Homiagif as in the highest gei_M huniane nnd cbaritnlile nnd patriotic. His attitude toward trust and railroad abusos the President justines with equally COgent nrgu nit'iiis. His pmppaa has been to strike at evi ilent evils and to expose intual wrongiloers. Much fervent denuin'iati"ii has been beaped on combiuatlons as such. But coiiibinatioii as an econoinic principle has come to stay, and we must get aecustomed to its eonsequenoes. As ihe President well puts it: The effort to prevent all raatralnt of .ompetl tion. whetqer harmfui or enefletol, haa been 111 judged; what 18 needed is not so much the effort to prevent combination as a vlgilant and c-f fwtlve control of the combinatlons formed, so as to secure just and oqultabl. deallngs on thelr part nlike toward the public generally. toward their smaller competltors and toward the wage workers they employ. What lli?* President wauts to obtaiu is *'the square ileal for everylnjily." The Impatlence with wlin-h he BPOB-I "i tbe spirit of lawleaa n.as and grced which rtiles in some of our trusts to-day is ftilly abared bv the American public. Tliat spirit is a menaee to the stabillty of our institutiniis. for. as the Presldenl says. it is awakeuini. a feellng of ln.u_t.ee which may lotid to drastic and ill conaldored legisla? tion. Strieter supervlsion of the aotivities "f all eorporations ?pp**! in inlerstato oomniorop is the remedy whlch he would apply: and that remedy seems now tbe only practieable and logioal one. The President will flnd the great bmly of the people Bnatainlng him in tbe pott cies whlch he lias niinle his own aud which he is soon to urpe on the attention of Congress. BlOB BXPLOBIVB8 l\ BBELL8. There have been two ways of trying to dam? age a war vessel with shells fired nt her. One is to better the annor froin the outside. aml the other is to try to jrenetrale tlie plate and ex plode the sliell after it is inside the bull. To pier.-e the armor it is, of course, neepssary ba pr.'je't the shell with suffieient for<*e. The gun froin which the latter is disohargod inust irlve il ? high initial velocity. Soinetliing depemls. too. on tli<* form and material of the projeetilo. The adiiition of a sofi cgp has also been found M fa'illtate au entranee. Penetratioii under certain circunistain-ps being ? possiliiliiy. then, it has been necessary to guard ;i(_ainsi one great danger. Tbe contents of ihe sliell might explode iu i-oiise<pieii<v of the shoek of discharge?in which case it would wreek the gun?or as a result of striking the exterior <>f the ship. Ilncb effort has accord inKly been devoted to r-doclng the aenaitlveneea of the eontainod explosive. to avert both of these .ontingeiH ies, detonattoo being affected by ineans of a stiitable time fuse. An explosive %vas tested at Sandy Hook the Other duy wbleh is ineant to work in tlie old fashioned way of doing damage externally. Its lnventor. Willard S. Ishain. elaiins for it greater power than haa ever been developpd hitherto (ine account of its coinpositlon make*- '.mi per cent of lt nltroglyecriue, 8 per oent truneotton anii _ i>er cent enniphor. the lust nieiitioned In gredient being meant to retanl the action of the others. The effect of the solitary trial given to Mr. Isham's oompouud. however, does not appear to hare tieen startltng The annor plate ihut was employed aa a target was deuted. l,ut the fahrle behind It was not partlcularly d-BOr* gaiiized. From a popular poliit of view there was llttle prideuce that a vessel thus att.ioked, cvi-n at short rauge, would suffcr sp\erply. The l.otion that a ship might be holsted hodily out of water by sueh a shot has been imputed to Mr. Ishain. but thi* stiggestion is wihlly ox truvagtiiit. I'nless tlie army offlcera who watched the test reach a iliffcrent eonclusloii. lt may b?* i ssuuied that no lm|>ortai?t aclditiou haa Im-pii iiiaile to the resouro<*s. of war. ("uns aml l?rojectlles will. in all probabllity, continue to be (i.'sigiied with a view to paBs-tratlon. Mr. Ishain is said to have cberiabed a bope that tbe g.ses llberated by Hip i-iplusion of one of his shells would stiii>pfy or klll thp cr?*w of a war vessel and thua render It helples-*. Tln* stateuipnt is probably Inaeeurate. If suffor*a tion arere hia prime object. be would aeeouiplish it better by libernting the fv.tnes only after the hull was pierced. But, as the use of poisons or poisonous arnis 1n war wns sptviflcally prohib ited by the International Peai'e Congress at The ftiiguc In 181)9, the practice would liardiy be permisslble. The less said about this phase of Mr. Ishani't* fcBTanUon tlie less his reputation will suflir. THE FAITH FVL WOUWDM OF A FBIEXD. If Mr. Jerome has behind hts inapulsiveness the largeness of mlud to see his own mistakes and the oapacity to govern himself so neeessary for the best work ln helping to govern others, he will, ln thankfulness and seriousness, read, mark. learn and lnwardly digpst the admonitlona ad drpsspd to liim yesterday by "Tbe New-York World," whlch we repriut ln another colunin. They are the faithful wounds of a friend. When Mr. Jerome flrst declared his Independenee of party niachinos and hit readiness to nm for ro-eiection ns ti candidate of umu-ganlzed citi? zens "The World" went enthuslastifally to his support and made his cause its own. It has secured names to he put on his nomlnation papers. It is still enrnest ln Its belief in him nnd the poticy of pottttcal independenee which he chainpiotis lis rebuke of his lntemperance and rei'kless injustiee ls delivpred solwly nnd in ? helpful splrlt. If a Republiean newspappr, even though it admired Mr. Jeronie's sturdy independeine nnd wlsheii his re-election, were to lecture him for his unbriilled tongue, lt would, of course, be snl4l that it was disturbed hy his "tnith telling." The World" Is uot open to that charge. It i? as mui'li opposed to Republlcan party politlcs as Mr. Jerome i*nn be. Nor Ss Its eonoern merely baaed on thoughts of expedlency. It objects be? cause it feels that what Mr. Jerome says ls not true. Mr. Jerome may or may not, hy his reck lpsg apeecli. alienate possible supporters whose aid is nbsolutely necessary to his suceess. He night 84'orn such eonsidprations. and gain ap plniise in so dolng. His prnsptvts are not the point at issue, but his own character. Strnight forward courage of p-xpresslon is one thing: ir raeponfl-t-e slander is quite another. And Mr. Jerome sbould be on his guard if he does not want to arousp the belief among sober ruiuded citizens that hia bonsted (*alling of a spadp a spade is something pntirely diflferent. Thp Dis? triet Attorney ought to proflt by "Thp World's" admonitions and live up to the responsibillties of his bigb officp. He should avoid Ipvity anil rpcklpssness of speech and learn to weigh his words. BOBOB ASD PARLIAUEST. The romiug Natlonal Assembly in Russia will not be an effective parlianient. but still Ipss will it bo a BOfnaky sobor of the old Russian kind. The sobor was aii Institutlon wbich flour lahed from the time of Ivan the Terrible to that of Michae. Romanoff, or perbaps that of Alexis Miohaelovitch Romanoff, thp fathpr of PetPr tbe Great but has since been unknown. It was always called ad boc, for a spooific purpoee, as thla assembly wil! not dp, and it was investPtl with a certain atithority. which tbis assembly muy not possrss. The occasions of the chief lObori are worth rpcalling, to show thp part those gatheringa played in the early history of ihp pnipire. Tlie first was called togptliei* by Ivan Gr _ny. or the Ti'fi-ible. the most aiitocratif and despotic of all Russian Czars, nn4i the first of all to abandon thp old title of Vpllky Kniaz, OT Great Prince, nnd be croaned as t'-psnr. He sum inonpd to Moscow 838 boyars. olprgymen, lande>l proprietora, merchants nnd townsfolk, to deoide whether or not he should continup his war against I'oland for thp acquisltbui of Riga and otber parts of I.ivland. aud its unaniiriotis de cision was that he should do so. A second came at tlie end of the Ivanovitch 4lynasty, when for a titiH' there was an interivgnuni. Roris ibciunoff. the Mong4-?i uaarper, aarmnmaaed a sobor of 474 members, of the mme classes as before, to elect f. new t*zar. ?>f course !t onanlmoualy eiectod bim. Again, at another interregnum, at.tlie end of the dynasty of Rurik. a sobor was enllpd to plect a Czar. It unani nioush choee tHehae. TbeodornTitcb Rouianoff, and ilius eiidwl the Time of Troubles and estab llahed the modern Russian Empire. Thp last of all. coDcernlng whlch recorda are obacwe nnd ijin eitain, was t-albnl probably by Alexls, son of Mi.liael Roinanof. and father Of Peter the Great, iu coKU-ecttoa with his great reforins, for it was be who coditled Russian laws. prodaimed tha equallty of all his subjects under thp law, and eatabtiahed the Russian dlplotnatic service. Nicholas H will not sununon hts assembly in Kii4-h ji way. (Vrtainly it will not have for its Bim thp ostabllshment of a iipw dynasty. If lt should be identlhed with tbe endlng of the war and with th?> establishnient of great domoatic reforins. combintog some of thp featurPs of tlip tirst and last sobors. it would bp n worthy link between the sobors of thp past and thp parlla nieiits of the future. l V <U.O JOKB KILLBD. ln the g4?4(4l old daya of tlie BucUey Spre oadera and tbe Chriety Minsireis, BOdiencea alwaya langhed wben tbe pompous fcnteriocu tor asked: Now.

"Why can't you serve?*' asked the otber. "Boeanse." said the worried young man.
