Politics and the Strike. The strike of the coal miners Is but partly Inaugurated, and yet Mr. Bryan Is already nstng I! as a poIHIcal weapon. He has seized it with avidity. Was he expecting It? Has the strike a political side? Has it been engineered for the purpose of benefit ing Mr. Bryan's candidacy? Of the merits of the controversy between the miners and the mine owners the public Is so far but imperfectly advised. It Is staled that a gTeat many of the miners have been opposed to a strike, and certain It is that all of the best influences surround ing them have opposed the step. The pulpit. Catholic and Protestant, has exerted Itself strenuously in favor of a continuation of work. In the dispatches today appears an offer from the venerable Archbishop Ryan of Philadelphia to add his services to those already enlisted toward making peace be tween the contervding forces. The mine owners assert that they have not refused to treat with the miners. They declare that they have not been approached by them or by anybody with a request for an arbitration of any matter. They are willing to meet their employes and discuss any complaints they may have to offer. But they take a stand agaJnst outside inter ference with their business. They refuse to obey a demand made by a small coterie of walking delegates and officials of an organ isation unknown to them, who sit and issue decrees at a distance. It is this statement of the case which lends strong color to the charge that there are secret influences behind the whole busi ness, and that the end sought is not the good of the miners but the advancement of ? a political coalition. It serves to explain too how ardent all unselfish Influences? these of the churches in particular?have been to save thousands of families from the distress which always follows a move ment of this kind hurried into execution. Labor is one ot the bulwarks of the repub lic. it is at all times and In every depart ment of business entitled to fair and even generous treatment. That the laborer Is worthy of his hire comes from a source so exalted it needs no emphasis, but only to be spoken. But when labor permits itself to be used by scheming politicians for purely political ends it is not only untrue to Itself but to the country. The Homestead affair was deplorable beyond the power of expres sion. but maybe Us most appalling feature was the use the politicians made of it. Playing upon the feelings of labor at a time of the highest excitement, they turned labor from employment and good wages and with its assistance ushered In a period of greater general distress than the country ever be fore had known in times of peace. ? ? ? Record-Breaking Charity. From present indications the funds for the relief of the sufferers Ht Galveston and the other cities wrecked by the gulf storm will aggregate several million dollars. The totals already reported in various cities are so large that It Is clear that this disaster will evoke a more generous response than was ever before recorded under similar cir cumstances. There is good reason for breaking all records, however. The losses are unprecedented and the necessities are overpowering. The emergency Is not to be measured alone by the loss of life, which is estimated now as high as 10,000. It is the living wno need help. Yet the death list in a degTee reflects the distress of the survivors, for in hundreds, probably thou sands of instances wage-earners have been killed, leaving families destitute. Industries have been wrecked throwing thousands of others out of employment. It will be months before Galveston has been restored to a basis of self-support, and meanwhile there must be means to keep the dependent ones alive and. perhaps to put them on the road toward independence once more. Fortunes have been swept away. Homes have b*-en destroyed. The disaster has been inexpressibly complete. So there will be good use for every dollar that may be gathered in the cities. Even though the fund were to reach *5.000.<lli0. as Is now esti mated by some, it will not be too large ?iiher to express the grief of the country t>r the necessities of I he paralyzed region. Incidentally this wonderful outburst of practical sympathy reflects the prosperous condition of the country. Charities con ducted on any scale indicate how large is the margin of individuals over their needs and therefore no surer testimony to the g?.<Kl times could be had than the leaps and bounds by which the funds have been Increased In virtually every center of popu lation In this country, large and small. "Charity begins at home," and In times of stringency it is difficult to appeal success fully to the generosity of people, even when the distress is acute. It Is still too early to venture the asser tion that Galveston has met with irrepara bly disaster. There is no telling what American enterprise can achieve until the actual test occurs. Street Hallway Power Brakes. Ever since street cars were run by other than horse power there has been an unre mitting search for some form of power biake to replace the hand brake of the motorman or gripman. It has been recog nized by street railway managers as well as by municipal authorities that with such a great increase in speed there should be an eo.uivalent increase in the braketng power. The marked success of the air brake on steam trains early called attention to this method of stopping cars, and experiments were begun several years ago by some of the larger rapid transit companies with a view to ascertaining whether the same principle could not be applied to the street traction cars. Later, when electricity de veloped Its high efficiency as a motive power for cars, attention was directed toward the use of the current for this same purpose. Many Inventions have been more or less perfected, until there are now upward of a score of appliances termed Power brake* applicable for this particular service. For several seasons the Metropolitan Railroad Company of New York has been conducting costly tests to determine the efficiency of one and another of these ap pliances. and has sought to devise some thing satisfactory itself. But to little or Iio effect. Recently the matter was taken tip by the state railroad commission of New "Vork and official tests were made of the fcest of the devices, with results Just pub lished in an official report. The conclusions arc not reassuring. They certainly do not ?how that a satisfactory and reliable power brake has yet been found, although they Indicate that a marked advance has been attained during the past few years. The great difficulty In the way of a street car power brake arises from the brevity of th? average run and. correspondingly, the number of stops. The run being short It la difficult to store power from the axle, and the stops being frequent the drain upon the sou roe of power is severe. This seems to pr?aent a paradox. It has been measurably overcome, though not to the satisfaction of the New York board or of the practical railroad managers. The alr brakes require a large storage capacity to compensate for the brevity of the run. and the electric brakes constitute a severe drain upon the power system. Neverthe less the board's conclusions favor a certain form of electric brake as being the be3t In the market, although Its recommendations do not require Its particular adoption, but suggest that all street cars In operation In the state of New York be, within a reason able tin:e, equipped with one or another style of power brake, according to a prefer ential list. One of the most remarkable features of this test was that a series of runs with cars equipped only with hand brakes show ed that form to be practically as effective as the best of the power brakes. This may have been due to the fact that the brake shoes In the hand-brake teats were more worn that those in the power brake tests, and therefore had a higher coefficient of friction, a most important factor in the efficiency of the brake. The board calls at tention to the fact that nothing as yet fully replaces the human intelligence of the motorman or gripman, who can so manipu late his brake as to prevent the skidding of the wheels, which was found to be an almost Invariable feature of the workings of the power brakes. It is to be hoped that eventually some mechanical device will be found to reproduce this factor, and thus relieve the motorman of his enormous re sponsibility while more surely safeguarding the public. A Statesman Without a Party. John O. Carlisle declines to state at this time what his position is with regard to the presidential contest. He is aware that a good deal of curiosity exists on the sub ject. and that he has been quoted bath for and against Mr. Bryan; but this gives him no disquiet, and if he decides to make a statement he will do so in his own time and over his own signature. A widely circu lated story Is that the managers of Mr. Bryan's campaign are confident of being able to parade Mr. Cleveland and all but one of the members of his second cabinet In Mr. Bryan's train before the day of election. Mr. O'.ney and Mr. Wilson have already come into camp, and they are to be followed at intervals which will Impress the country by Mr. Cleveland, Mr. Carlisle, Mr. Herbert. Colonel Lamont, Mr. Blsseli and Judge Harmon. Mr. Morton of Ne braska. as the story goes, cannot be moved. The scheme is happily conceived. But will it work? As he appears today, Mr. Carlls'e is a statesman without a pa?rty. And his condi tion forcibly illustrates the changes that have taken place in this country In a com paratively brief time. Only a few years ago. and he was the leader of democracy In Kentucky, and one of the party's na tional leaders. Today he Is practically an exile from Kentucky, and without politi cal following there or elsewhere. As the phrase is. he is out of politics. He is giv ing his whole time to the practice of the law. One of the ablest of our public men developed since the close of the civil war. a good lawyer, a great parliamentarian, a most convincing speaker, after twenty-five years' experience in national affairs, and while still an active and comparatively a young nun. he Is lost to the public service through the operations of as radical a change < f party leadership, local and na tional. a ever was witnessed in this coun try In Kentucky the men. with but a few ex ceptions. who co-operated with Mr. Carlisle In giving to the democracy of that state a national Influence, are now In opposition to it, either on account of Goebellsm or Bryan ism. The men In charge are as pigmies when compared with him and them. It is the day of small men and discreditable measures, and it is probably well for his fame and personal comfort that Mr. Car lisle has transferred his residence to New York. A survey of the national field pre sents a spectacle quite as surprising. The democrats of his Intellectual stamp are either tn open opposition to the party s es tablished leadership, or else, merely for regularity's sake, are supporting candidates and platforms arousing no respect in their bosoms whatever. -? ? ? Waablngton'f Health Mfa??re?. Healthful as It already Is. Washington is in fair way to become notable among the most wholesome residential centers in the country. Filtration of the water supply, about to be accomplished, will remove a possibility of infection which can never lie said to be ab>*nt locally as long as thern are habitations in the upper water-shed of the Potomac. An extension of the milk Inspection service, to prevent adulteration and to detect disease contamination, such :i9 is being urgently advocated now, will close in large degree another door through which the public health may be assailed at any time. It is promised, too, that next winter Congress will take some practical steps to ward the Improvement of the Eastern Branch flats, which will complete the .sani tary river work and lessen greatly the chances of malarial diseases finding loilg ment here. Then, with clean streets, abun dance of good water for all domestic pui poses, an efficient refuse disposal service, and good administration over all the branch es of the municipal government affecting the public health, it is reasonable to ii> pect that the capital will soon rise to top rank among cities in this item of first im portance. The Secret Alliance Bugbear. The Western Laborer of Omaha. Nebras ga, is a vigorous and thoroughly democratic sheet, having the name of Wm. J. Bryan at the head of Its editorial column a.s its can didate for the presidency. This is what it has to say about the alleged secret alliance between this country and England: "It may be hard for democrats to pub licly acknowledge It, but It must be pri vately conceded that the present apparent tie-up between Russiaand the United 8tates retires th? 'secret treaty with England" issue from the campaign. The retirement may only be temporary, but she ls certainly out of the service at the present writing. Wouldn't that Jar you?" A Decent Moriiue Seeded. The District coroner's appeal to the Com missioners to ask Oongress for a sufficient appropriation for a decent morgue ought to be heeded. For many years the morgue has been a reproach to the capital. The accommodations for housing the dead held by the police for Investigation have been disgracefully Inadequate. There should be erected here a well-appointed, commodious building for this purpose, suited to the holding of inquests. As long as the office of coroner ls maintained it should be given the pro]>er facilities for its conduct. A coroner's court attached to the morgue would be useful in many Instances. ? ? ? The intimation of some of Mr. Bryan's admirers that the salvation of the country demands a democratic President to squelch "Imperialism" and a republican Senate to hold free silver in check is, to say the least, a trifle confusing. ? e Oom Paul will probably admit before long that what he really neeeded waa not sym pathy, but some frank common sense In the way of discouragement. * a Damp bat Saceeaaful Caatfalgaing. The reports of Governor Roosevelt's tour through Dakota and Minnesota the last two days suggest that he ls having a fiercer battle with the elements than with the political opposition. He has been ac companied at all his stops by a persistent storm, which haa drenched him and his hearers without discrimination or mercy. Notwithstanding the untoward conditions he haa been created by big crowda, and every ctrcuaaataaaa haa simalefl that the voters in that region are by no mas? at fllcted with apathy. When a man is will lug to stand for hours in a rold rata wait ing: to hear a candidate talk and then to listen to him with enthusiasm despite the climatic handicaps, he la not likely to flag In his zeal in November. King Menellk of Abyssinia entertains some Idea of going to war with England.

A patent medicine vendor In a hack can always get a big crowd of people. But very few of them believe Mm. It is remarkable to note the number of eminent democrats who feel called upon to mildly apologise for voting the democratic ticket this fall. ? e m By going republican as usual Maine gives Thomas B.

"I suppose you have gotten home at 2 or 3 o'clock In the morning," remarked the rollicking citizen, "and found difficulty in finding the !atch-key?" "I was once out till half-past 12," an swered Mr. Meekton, earnestly. "But I didn't have the slightest apprehension about the latch-key. I knew when we started that Henrietta had it safely in her purse as usual, and that all I need do was to ask her for It." Retaliation. The cynic smites the world and then Displays a wondrous lack .

"Maybe he's Inclined to put on airs be cause he has a barrel of money," said one politician. "We'll soon teach him something about modern politics," replied the other. In a resolute tone.

"The manner In which language adapts itself to delicate shades of meaning Is very beautiful." remarked the man with gold spectacles and white hair. "I note, for in stance, that Mr. Stevenson Is ordinarily re ferred to as Mr. Bryan's running mate." "Yes; that Is a customary expression." "And in this case an eminently fit one.

One of the good results of republican suc cess In Maine will be the re-election of Sen ator Frye to the Senate. This will be tho fifth time he will have received the same honor. James G. Blaine resigned his seat in the Senate in 1881 to accept the office of Secretary of State in President Garfield's cabinet, and William P. Frye. who was then a member of the House of Represen tatives from the second Maine district, was chosen to fill out the unexpired term. He has since been elected to three full terms, and next spring will complete twenty years of service In the Senate. Mr. Frye belongs to that coterie of distinguished men that Maine has contributed to the public service during the past thirty years. Of these, Biaine and DLngley are dead and Reed has retired to private life. Mr. Frye is easily the chief of those that remain. His re-election next winter by the unanimous republican vote In the legislature will be Maine's trib ute to Mr. Frye's ability and faithfulness to his duties. Mr. Davis Hhonld Be Heard Front. From the New York Tribune. Of course Mr. Thlelkuhl's story may be grossly unjust to Mr. Davis. It may be a base and calumnious fabrication, Inspired by Mr. Joseph Chamberlain of Birmingham, and paid fur by Mr. Cecil Rhodes of Kim berley, for the purpose of injuring the rep utation of Paul Kruger and his gallant and chivalrous champion, Mr. Webster Davis. If so, and if Mr. Davis deems It worth while to prove It so, we shall hasten with great Joy to give that gratifying aspect of the case the publicity it deserves. For some such sequel to Mr. Thlelkuhl's charges we shall eagerly look. It would be a real loss to our faith In human nature to be per suaded that Mr. Davis' rhetorical attacks upon the administration and upon the re publican party had no better basis than pe cuniary disappointment. It would be a dreadful calamity to be deprived of the fond conviction that Mr. Davis Is the man of the finest sentiments in the world since the un timely demise of the late lamented Joseph Surface. Sentiment in Politic*. From the Boston Globe. The re-election to Congress of Charles A. Boutfi:Iij of Bangor is one of the most lm pressivH and extraordinary tributes which a body of electors ever paid to any man. While Thad Stevens lay dead, his body waiting burial, his loyal constituents as sembled at Gettysburg and solemnly re nominated him to his old seat in Congress. When the funeral was over, however, this action was reconsidered and a new candi date chosen. The people who voted for Captain Boutelle did It with the knowledge that his most unfortunate mental malady would prevent his attendance upon Con gress. and even might leave him In ignor ance of their remarkable exhibition of feal ty, while the district would remain unrep resented, yet they commissioned him anew by a flattering vote. SwinfdniK Signboard Menace. From the Chicago Past. The wind storm yesterday served to call attention again to the danger of the swing ing signboard. While It was not responsible for either of the two deaths resulting from the gale, four of the eight people injured were struck by falling signs, and this is about the proportion in every high wind As a matter of fact, Chicago may be said to be sign-ridden. The big merchants are content with a simple announcement of the name and character of business, which, from the point of view of safety and sight liness, is all that the street sign should con tain. But the little fellows must have signs of all kinds, and the cheaper and smaller the concern the more numerous and ag gressive the signs, as a general rule. They protrude everywhere, frequently In viola tion of the law. As they are only tempo rary in many instances, they are not prop erly secured, and down they come In the llrst capful of wind. It Is outrageous that lives should be thus Jeopardised, but noth ln* can prevent It except a rigid enforce ment of the laws relating to the subject. ? e m A Catelga of Anlegr.
