The Trnnafcr Controveray.
The opinion of the assistant attorney for
the District. in which he holds that passen
gers of the Brightwood Railway Company
are not entitled to free transfers to the
Metropolitan Railroad Company, and that
the act of February 20, 1WK1. authorizing
and requiring the Brightwood company to
sell four coupon tickets for 25 cents, good
for one continuous ride in the District over
the lines of that company and the Metro
politan railroad, is still in force, has no di
rect unfavorable bearing upon the matter
at Issue between the people and the rail
road company.
Those who are familiar with the situation
and have a thorough understanding of the
legislation which brought about the consoli
dation of a number of local roads under the
name of the Washington Traction and Elec
tric Company have ncrt been inclined to deny
that the company had a legal right to re
vert to the old tariff of charges on certain
suburban loads If It saw fit. But the ques
tion at issue is regarded as one not of law.
but of equity. When the Incorporators of
the new company were seeking the neces
sary consolidating legislation last session
there was a tacit understanding that they
wished to straighten out the matter of ex
travagance in transfers, but it was not
suggested or dreamed that there would be
a discriminating advance In the tariff.
Otherwise, there Is reason to believe that
the act of Congress would have touched
specifically upon the subject. The railroad
company in its own interest will probably
do well to exercise moderation In forcing
the public (to the wall under a jug-handled
law which Is made to consolidate eleven
roads for the pecuniary benefit of the con
trolling corporation and to leave them un
consolidated so far as the community's In
terest Is concerned.
Cheap car fare, together with a geperous
transfer system, has worked in two ways.
It has served to develop the suburban sec
tions of the District, and has thereby vastly
Increased the travel on the various roads.
It is a question whether the Traction Com
pany, If It increases the car fare, will be
dealing in good faith with the people along
the Brightwood and Tenleytown roads, with
whom the matter of street car transporta
tion and its cost figured largely In the se
lection of places of residence, and to some
of whom officials of the company have
made equity-raising representations. That
the action of the railroad company will re
tard the development of the two suburbs
affected needs no arguments. To that ex
tent, the company would seem to be propos
ing & penny-wise, pound-foolish policy.
The company will be wise to withdraw
entirely its proposal to Increase discrimi
natingly the Brightwood and Tenleytown
fares, and to overcome Its financial deficit
through the economies of administration
which consolidation permits, and through
the saving which will result from checking
the abuses of a wide-open transfer system.
Our Relation to Cuba.
The pessimistic utterances of such a
man as Salvador Cisneros regarding the
independence of Cuba In no way add to
the good feeling that should exist between
the people of the United States and the
Island. If the ex-president of the old pro
Visional republic of Cuba represents public
sentiment where he lives then the people
have certainly forgotten the work of this
country In their behalf. Furthermore, they
are showing an impatience and lack of
tact that ought not to be found In a popu
lation that maintains its right to and fond
ness for self-government. They are man
ifesting the suspicion that has always
characterised the Latin race and in many
ways are showing ingratitude.
Gen. Cisneros has ascertained that in
some way this country proposes to hold a
friendly, although distant, supervision of
the island, and he almost threatens revo
lution. He forgets that we have practi
cally done this for many years as to South
American countries. This country has not
^ssumed. through the Monroe doctrine, the
protection of weaker countries in this hem
isphere without at the same time Indirectly
assuming that those countries should not
embroil themselves In war with larger
Countries without first giving us an op
portunity to settle the matter.
While this country intends that Cuba
?hall be free, no administration, republican
or democratic, would dare leave things in
?uch condition that Cuba could Involve
Jierself In a war with a country like Ger
many or England. There must be an un
derstanding with Cuba that she cannot be
a eource of perpetual danger and annoy
fcnoe to the United States. The Monroe
doctrine must surround the island whether
Jlr. Cisneros does or does not want It.
Cuba is too near the shores of the United
States to run this country into war or bit
ter diplomatic controversy. Therefore
{here must be some understanding with the
island republic, when It Is created, that
this country will have a voice In deciding
about Cuba's belligerent propositions.
Of greater importance still is the matter
Of commercial and other treaties. After
years of friendliness to Cuba it would be
the part of a foolish administration to
permit Cuba to enter into treaties with
European countries that would be detri
mental to our commercial interests or in
pome ways shut us out of the island. Such
$ result 1? possible unless we have an un
derstanding with Cuba that treaties must
not be made derogatory to the United
A serious danger to Cuba, and likewise
?o this country, would be the accumulation
31 an enormous national debt. Such a
!ebt would tend to constantly embroil the
Island In trouble and to invite corruption.
This country, as god-father to Cuba, may
decide to reserve the right to make sugges
tions on this subject also.

Rejecting; and Accepting Mr. Bryun.
Senator Stewart of Nevada believes that
Mr. Bryan is right on the silver question,
bi^; wiong on the question of imperialism.
He supimrted him four years ago on silver,
but rejects him now that Mr. Bryan has
put for the occasion imperialism in front of
silver. He doubts his loyalty as to silver,
and his wisdom as to Imperialism. He re
gards him now only as a candidate for the
presidency studying merely the chances of
Ex-Senator Henderson of Missouri be
lieves that Mr. Bryan is wrong on the sil
ver question, but right on the question ol
imperialism. He opposed him four years
ago on silvef. but, accepts him now that
Mr. firyiri Iiis put for the occasion im
perialism in front of silver. In a lettei
from Mr. Henderson, which appeara In to
day'^ Washington Tost, appears this para
, graph:
"I iray also agree with you that the
' question of free silver has been fully and
fairly discussed before the American peo
; pie. and they have settled it forever, ft is
now as completely removed from the prac
tical politics-of thp United States as is th?
constitutional right of secession. I care
not what Mr. Bryan may personally desire
in the premises. It was clearly demon
strated in the convention which recently
nominated him at Kansas City that fully
two-thirds of the democratic voters of the
country are now opposed to this fallacy
of free coinage. Mr. Bryan is not a fool,
and he will not likely try to reverse or
overrule the settled convictions of his
Although the one rejects and the other
accepts him; although the one is a silver
and the other a gold man; although the
one supported and the other opposed him
four years ago, both of these gentlemen
impeach the loyalty of Mr. Bryan to the
sliver Issue, and therefore his sincerity.
Both in effect accuse him of playing it
rather "fine" on the silver men.
But, strangely enough, the impeachment
of Mr. Henderson, who now accepts Mr.
Bryan, is the stronger of the two. Mr.
Henderson declares that two-thirds of the
Kansas City convention were opposed to
free silver, and that instructed by that
fact Mr. Bryan if elected would not "try
to reverse or overrule the settled convic
tions of his party." Mr. Henderson's fig
ures are far too high, but accepting them
for the argument's sake, why did Mr. Bry
an put himself at the head of a third of
the convention and force a specific demand
for free coinage at 1(> to 1 Into the plat
form? "Was it not for the purpose of cap
turing silver votes?
And what does Mr. Henderson mean by
the "settled convictions" of Mr. Bryan's
"party?" Mr. Bryan is not alone the can
didate of the democratic party. He was
first nominated by the populists, then by
the democrats, and then by the silver
republicans. If elected President his poli
cies must reflect the principles of all three
of those organizations. Mr. Bryan's party
is a fusion party, and will Mr. Henderson
seriously insist that the "settled convic
tions" of that party are against free sil
ver? And fifter soliciting and accepting
the votes of populists, silver republicans
and one-third of the democratic party on
the silver Issue, would Mr. Bryan In the
White House deliberately shelve silver?
Not much.
Tammany Hall and Reform.
Bird S. Coler is accounted by many of his
admirers the most promising democrat in
the state of New York. He is a young man
of excellent social and business connections,
is filling the office of comptroller of Greater
New York most acceptably to the business
men of both parties, and is being groomed
for the gubernatorial nomination of h's
party on the strength of his official record.
For a time he expressed a disinclination to
remain In politics on account of the press
ure of private affairs; but he has changed
his mind on that point and is now in the
| hands r,' his friends, and they believe that
I if they can secure his nomination victory
at the polls Is certain.
Mr. Coler Is a reformer. He Insists that
there is too much "commercialism in poli
tics;" that many men seek political office
for no other purpose than to trade upon
the influence and the opportunities afforded
by public station. Such as these, when
elected to ofilce, proceed to fill their own
pockets, and have that end In view much
more than serving the people. This, as Mr.
Coler points out, is at once a scandal and
a source of danger to public interests, and
he offers himself to lead a movement for
its correction.
Tammany Hall Is opposed to Mr. Coler,
and naturally enough. He was elected to
office by Tamma.iy, and his present attitude
is the result o' his observations of the way
in which Tammany does business. The
average Tammanylte in office considers that
he serves the people best when he serves
himself first, and he lives up to that con
ception of things. Tammany therefore re
gards Mr. Coler as being both an ingTate
and a traducer, and if Mr. Croker can pre
vent It Mr. Coler will not head the demo
cratic state ticket in New York this year.
But suppose Mr. Croker cannot help it.
Suppose Mr. Coler secures the nomination,
and Tammany is forced to support him.
He would not of course stand the ghost of
a chance without Tammany's support, and
if he should be elected governor with
that support he would owe his place
and power to the organization whose
practices he reprobates. Would he turn
then uoon those who had sent him to Al
bany? Would he blacklist the men whose
support at the polls he had solicited and
accepted ?
Mr. Coler's principles are admirable, but
he wifuld find that a reformer in office has
but small opportunities for usefulness un
less he has a reform party behind him.

Still Fiffhtlni; in China.
Today's advices to the government from
the military officials in China indicate that
a grave situation still exists in and about
Pekin and Tien Tsin. and that there is no
immediate prospect of a cessation of hos
tilities. There has been constant fighting
within the walls of Pekin since the allies
arrived, and the troope in the vicinity of
Tien Tsin have not been permitted to re
main Idle. General Chaffee lost six men
killed and thirty wounded In two days'
It was Intimated today at the departments
here having charge of the Chinese affair
that the advices received from General
Chaffee and not yet made public do not
forecast a bright prospect for the near fu
ture. Consequently there is likely to be no
diminution of the efforts to get. reinforce
ments to General Chaffee. The inference is
broadly given that a winter's campaign In
China Is not an impossibility.
While the news from China today is
grave in the promise of further trouble, th#
course of the administration insures the
handling of the situation with a firm hand
General Chaffee is a man of good judgment
as well as undoubted courage, and is keep
ing the President advised of the progress
of events. Stripped of all entanglements
of diplomacy, the policy of the American
government is clear and plain and will be
carried out with the aid of American arms
to the protection of our own Interests in
China and without harming the interests of
any other nation.

A Factor in the Maine Election.
An unusual amount of Interest attache*
to the election which will be held In Maine
September 10. There Is no doubt about
the result, but the size of the republican
majorities will be looked upon somewhat
as a straw showing the trend of feeling
on the subject of expansion. Silver In
Maine is deader than If all the door nails
were made of the white metal, but the
claim la made that the so-called tLnti-im
perlallutio movement will be a strong fac
tor with tho Yankee farmers when it comes
time to cast their votes. Travel Is a
great educator, and the farmers of the
Pine Tree state are .not as a rule able to
Journey the length and breadth of the land
to learn the general sentiment on the topics
of the day, and so It \s thought they may
be a bit Insular and too "conservative."
But in a certain sense there has been a
campaign of education going on in the old
siate this summer which la well worth
taking- Into consideration. Earlier In the
month the people of Maine celebrated what
they call "Old Home Week." During
time every township and every city kept
open house to welcome back the sons of
Maine who are scattered all over the coun
try. Prom every state in the Union farm
ers, bus'ness men and professional men
.came back to spend a few days amid the fa
miliar scenes of their childhood days, to
renew old ties anc^ to visit the "old home."
The born Yankee, no matter where he may
live, dearly loves an exchange of views.
He likes to swap opinions, as he would say.
There was many a lively discussion over
China and the Philippines, on Cuba and
Porto Rico, and the stay-at-home learned
what his brother in the far west or the
south is thinking of the situation. To all
intents, and purposes it was the same as
though he had gone from Florida to Cali
fornia. talking with men along the route.
"Old Home Week" did more to overcome
the apathy which republican leaders fear
in New England than all the campaign
documents and political orators they can
send into that section.

John J. Ingalls' later life was an admira
ble lesson on how to be remembered, though
not In office.
"No," said the industrious man, "I didn't
get much encouragement in my talk about
a holiday. I met my employer jpst as he
was coming home laden with golf sticks and
various other kinds of luggage, and ac
companied by his family of four girls and
a small boy. I told him I thought 1 needed
a rest."
"What did he do?"
"He looked at me hard for half a min
ute. and then exclaimed, 'I don't see why
you should want a rest. You haven't been
away on any vacation.' "

Warmly Appreciative.
"See th<! melting sunset?" exclaimed the
poetic young woman; "see how the crystal
tints seem to be stolen from the rainbow
mist and hung boldly over the mountain,
like banners of beauty, only to fade, alas,
with the dying daylight."
"I beg your pardon," said the young man
with close-cut hair, "but would you mind
saying all that again?"
"Do you think it so very pretty?"
"I should say so! I'm going to write It
down. "Melting sunset,' 'crystal tints,'
'rainbow mist,' 'dying daylight'?they're

Oar Daty ia China.
From the Boston Herald.
We are pleased to notice that the admin
istration at Washington is alive to the re
sponsibility It Is under, now that the for
eigners resident in Pekin are relieved, of
safeguarding the situation In China by tak
ing the initiative In proposing what may be
termed a policy of settlement. During the
last two years we have taken the Initiative
In a number of Chinese questions, and have
so far been successful In securing in so do
ing the support of the great powers of Eu
rope. We have been then, and are now, in
a fortunate position to take the responsibil
ity of leadership upon ourselveB. With the
exception of England, there Is probably no
country that has a greater trade interest
In China than the United States, and our
potential interest Is probably greater than
that which the English possess. This fact |
gives us a right to speak and to command
a hearing for our words.
Rocking- IMllnrn.
From the Chicago Journal.
When we read and reread that inspired
document known as the Kansas City plat
form. we confess that we fear for our
country, and see nothing but blue ruin
ahead. But we pluck up courage again
when we turn to the democratic platform
of 1808, whloh solemnly declared:
"Under its (the republican party's) re
peated assaults, the pillars of the govern
ment are rocking on their base, and should
it succeed in November next and inaugu
rate its President, we will meet as a sub
jected and conquered people, amid the
ruins or liberty and the scattered frag
ments of the Constitution."
It would appear that rocking on their
bases is a favorite practice with the pil
lars of the government.
t'*e of Chemical* in Milk.
From the Philadelphia I'reM.
An Omaha magistrate. In listening to
charges against dairymen of using a pre
servative to keep their milk from becoming
sour, seemed Inclined to believe the chemi
cals harmless. He was asked by the prose
cuting attorney If he would drink some of
the milk, and he promptly did so, and ad
journed the court to see the effect. But he
was too sick at the stomach to attend court
next day. Another magistrate acted for
him and punished all of the dairymen who
nad admitted that they used the preserva
tive in their milk. It was the same con
coction that dairymen have been caught
using around New York and Philadelphia
Feeding infants on such milk in hot
weather, or any other time, is almost cer

Omaha magistrate imposed, is altogether
