Stable tiovernment for the Filipinos. Doth political parties Agree that the first duty of this country Is to establish in the Philippines a stable government for the na tives. From this point the parties diverge. The democrats insist that after establishing such a government the United States should depart, yet retain the right of protector to supervise the operations of the government so established and prevent other nations from Interfering with the islanders. The re publicans propose that the sovereignty shall be retained by the United States, without, however, interfering with the full exercise by the Filipinos of their rights as individ uals and as a community. The President's instructions to the Taft commission. Just published, aim at the es tablishment of the most stable form of gov ernment in the islands regardless of the fu ture disposition of the formal sovereignty. Thus his letter compiles with the primary requirements of both parties and with the unquestionable demand of the people. These instructions represent the true Philippines policy of the administration. They put to shame the partisans who have vehemently Insisted that the government seeks to establish an imperialistic sovereign ty over the Filipinos, in a spirit destructive of the fundaments of American institutions. The President specifies that the commission Bhall afford the islanders practical guaran tees of a degree of liberty substantially similar to that enjoyed by the peapie of the American states and territories. He practically transfers the Constitution to the Islands. With the exception of the trial by Jury and the right to bear arms every right now enjoyed by the citizens of the republic Is to be extended to the Filipinos who will accept the sovereignty of the United States. The trial by Jury will probably come in good time. Until the armed insurrection still In some measure In progress in Luzon has been suppressed the government can of course not guarantee to the people the right to bear arms. The manner In which the question of the public lands and the status of the friars Is treated commends itself especially to the admiration of those who are able to view the situation without prejudice. The Pres ident adopts most wisely the policy of an entire separation of church and state, he declares against the forced imposition of a minister upon the people of a district, and he lays the foundation for an equitable In quiry into the titles to the lands claimed by the great religious organizations, over which there Is bitter dispute. But he takes ! the precaution to provide against the unjust j confiscation of such lands as may be wrest ed fr ?m their present holders. He Instructs ! the commission to act conservatively In ad judicating these titles and to make full pay ment whenever it is necessary for the gov ernment to absorb the legal holdings of private owners. In general, the letter of instructions com mands the highest praise. It breathes the spirit of good government for the Filipinos, of self-government to tha extent that the people are susceptible of maintaining that Institution, and of government primarily designed "for the happiness, peace and prosperity of the people of the Philippine Islands." It enjoins the establishment of authority based upon the small community as the unit, wherein the people shall have the fullest possible control over their own affairs, if this be imperialism, then it wTere far better for the world if there were more of it, far better for the United States if it could be spread into those regions where today great numbers are deprived of a voice In their own affairs, although measuring up to the constitutional standard of citizen ship. m e The strike in Pennsylvania will, of course, be scrutinized for campaign arguments. The one tinge of relief about the Galveston horror is that it cannot in any way be twisted into politics. Germany may want to borrow twenty-five million or so, and the United States will not let any litUe pique concerning preserved meats stand In the way of business. A Scheme of Capital Development. Architect Glenn Brown's article In the Architectural Review, reprinted in today's Star, la of great interest to Woshington lans and offers many valuable suggestions as to the best method of developing the beauties of the capital and approximating the Ideals which have animated Its foun ders and makers. Mr. Brown, who has had opportunity and occasion to study the mat ter of public const ruction at close hand for many years, believes that the govern mental buildings should be grouped, to af ford a maximum artistic effect and to avoid Interferences and obeauTaUons such as now mar some of the beautiful results of the structures already created. Mr. Brown be lieves the Mall should not be utilized for building dStes. He proposes to add to Its area by the purchase of certain land on the so'ith and all the land lying between it and Pennsylvania avenue on the north and placing on this added area, ail the public Stiow-tures required by the government. Thus he adjusts his general proposition to the project now growing In popularity, that of utilizing the space between the avenue and the Mall for this purpose. As to the necessity for thia enterprise on the port of the government there now seems 'jo be no diwtent. Mr. Brown's general swffgestiona are ar tistic and attractive. They may never be realized in detail, even though the main features of the project ore in harmony with the thought now gaining ground in the public mind. The grouping of the pub llo buildings on the space smith of Penn sylvania avenue Is readily to be made part Of a comprehensive plan of Mall develop ment. Mr. Brown urges the construction of siraljpht avenue or boulevard from the Capitol to the monument and thence to the Memorial Bridge, the site of which he pro poses to change to the southward. There are divergent opinions as to the chararter of any broad central thoroughfare through the Mall. There are objections to a straight street, while such a thoroughfare undoubt edly affords vistas otherwise unobtainable. It Is gratifying to note that Mr. Brown in his suggestion. In adopting the principle of straight thoroughfare, does not seek to place the pubHo buildings along it, but throws them to new lands added on either side, and thus clears the park space proper of all structures other than those of an im mediately ornamental character. This article appears In good season, for Gen. John M. Wilson, the chief of en gineers of the army, through Col. Bingham and the landscape architect chosen for con sultation. In conformity with the recent act Of Congress. Is evolving a comprehensive plan for the treatment of the Mall and the lards lying north, of B street south, as well aa for the proper oonnection of the Potomac and Zoolofloal parks. Embarrassed by both attractive opportunities and stubborn obstacles. Gen. Wilson's task Is a heavy one. There are certain conditions obstruc tive at m complete realisation of the truly monumental plan sa ardently desired by the eapltai-mRkent, The Mall Is pierced by only railway and street caf lines. Some of the public offices which deserve housing In artistic quarters in a great group of splendid structures are how sufficiently quartered In permanent building# else* where, or In the Mall Itself, which are not likely to hp abandoned by the government. But the opportunities are abundant to evolve a scheme of drives and public build* lng sites which would upon realisation establish a world record for attractiveness. A combination of boulevard, bridge and park drive would connect the Capitol, White House, monument, Arlington and Mount Vernon, a series of historic points of unequalled Interest. A drive curving north wurd to embrace the parks of Rook Creok and the Soldiers' Homo, the fort* encircling the city and finally the Ana costia Park, yet to be wrested from the river bed, would afford an opportunity for the Washlngtonlan and his guest to see art. nature and the monuments of great events In a manner nowhere to be paral leled. There are features of Mr. Brown's sug gestion which fit these opportunities and overcome these obstacles in such a manner as to commend It in general to the atten tion of the authorities. It avoldB a further use of park space for building purposes. It sweeps away the structures now defacing the avenue and the Mall and utilises their sites for a beautiful and useful improve ment. While it Is open to the objections which have been urged against a straight avenue through the Mall It minimizes the attendant evils of that device by placing all the public structures far to the side and outside of the existing park. Mr. Bryan's Letter. Mr. Bryan's letter of acceptance is sfcrappv. It might have been written on a pail resting on his knee, as he rushed from station to station on one of his whirlwind railroad journeys. The issues are all touched upon, but merely touched upon. A line about trusts, a line about silver, a line b ut expansion, with a word or two about Cuba, the Nicaragua canal, and the Monroe doctrine, and the stoo ls told. The impression made is that a task has been performed perfunctorily. The letter will add nothing to Mr. Bryan s reputation, nor will the democrats be able to draw from It. as the republicans will from Mr. McKlnley's. arguments of value for use'ln the campaign. The severest criticism to be passed upon the deliverance is that It opens with a pledge which, however sinccrely made, is not worth the paper It is written on. Mr. Bryan can no more commit himself at this time against a third try for the presidency in case he is elected this year than he can change the stars in their courses. If he goes into the White House It will be to sub ject himself to all of the influences sur rounding that high station, and inevitably to yield to such pressure as no man before him there has ever resisted. Why not a second term? Mr. JefTerson had one, and made good use of It. General Jackson had one, and made good use of It. Mr. I-iincoln was re-elected, and the whole country still suffers from the fact that he did not live to complete the second term. And how much the people would have benefited had they rc-elected General Harrison can only prop erly be appreciated by recalling th<* appall ing price they paid for putting an end to an era of prosperity and inaugurating one of widespread calamity. Is Mr. Bryan begging his way into the presidency? His pledge sounds a little like It. It reads as if he might be saying to Mr. Hill, Mr. Gorman and others, "Come, gen tlemen. Bear a hand, everybody, now. I'ut me in for one term, and then the field shall be clear as to the succession. I will be In no man's way four years hence." And does this account for tlio activity of those dem ocratic leaders who, although opposed to everything for which Mr. Bryan stands, are ?yet working for his election? Vain promise! Vain expectation! For particulars address the honorable Grover Cleveland, Princeton. New Jersey. Ask him in confidence for the details of the melting away of that sort of a resolution, and how a one-term candidate may become In his heart a candidate for life. It Is an Instruct ive story, which every presidential candi date should read, mark, learn and inwardly digest. Pride, h Mnstnclie and Sntclde. Human pride Is sometimes based upon queer foundations. A fish-peddler In New York boasted of a mo? luxuriant mus tache, so long that It could be tied In a knot behind his neck. It was renowned throughout the F.ast Side, a region noted for its peculiarities of human structure ar.d adornment. Tho other day the owner of this wondrous mustache became em broiled with a belligerent expressman, who in the vent of his fury tore out sections of the famous growth. The peddler, downcast over the mutilation of his mustache, took poison and ended a life which, he declared, would forever be miserable because his pride j had been wrecked along with his hirsute j achievement. ? j Mr. Jones of Toledo does not stigmatize Mr. Bryan as a bold, bad politician, eager to build up a regular party organization with which to fight the republicans. Triumphs over David B. Hill have become so common with Croker that he goes right ahead with his campaign work without stopping to celebrate. ? e ? There is so much disquiet In various parts of the globe that there Is absolutely no tell ?ng where Alfred Austin's poetry will strike ! next. The unmuzzled dog has managed to get pretty well into fall weather with an ad mirable record. ? Settle the Strike. The great strike of the anthracite coal miners in eastern Pennsylvania is now un der way. A majority of the men are out, the mines are In most cases closed for the lack of workers and all Indications point to a complete tie-up of the operations for an Indefinite period. Both side* are stubbornly facing the situation, with an avowed deter mination not to yield. There has already been slight disorder, resulting from assaults of strikes upon non-union miners. The situation, while otherwise peace ful now. Is nevertheless fraught with the most serious possibilities for evil, not alone In the provoking of riots, but In the sufferings of the miners and their families and In the effect upon the coal consumers of the country. It Is to the Interest of every class that the strike be settled without delay, that the mines be re opened. the men restored to their wage earning, the price of coal fixed reasonably for the winter and the chance of serious disorder effectually overcome. Therefore eveiy effort should be made to prevent the strike from going to extremes and further to effect s settlement between the opeiators and their workers. Such ef forts can be exerted, as usual, by political parties, whether applied to the operators or to the strikers, by the representatives of the churches, whatever msy be their points of view, by the leaders of the men and by the operators themselves. In short, the paramount duty of all con cerned. directly or indirectly, all whc> have Influence with either side, all who can ad duce an argument or exert pressure. Is to readjust the dlfferencee between these oppo nents. It is necessary to effect a settlement soon, or this strike will probably follow the course of Its predecessors and lead to In tense suffering among the miners and to clashes between the men and the forces af :?*. Meanwhile, the general community must be protected from losses and suffer Ing3 Incidental to eurh a widespread Inter ruption of the coal traffic of the County It id already indicated that the republican party managers are trying to persuade the operators to grant concessions to the miners looking to a settlement of the differ ences. It Is to be hoped that their efforts will succeeds Any political ItWluenoe which is available and effective might well be ek erted on the other side to persuade the miners' leaders to yield somewhat frotn their insistence upon a direct, formal reo ognlsation of organisations by the mine owners as long as practical relief Is ob tained for the men. At the present stag*, so far as the strike has developed spontaneously and is not a political oreatlon, the sympathies of the people are with the miners. They seem in certain oases to have some Just grlevanoes, deserving remedy. The extortionate powder charge, the monthly payment, the long weight ton. the lose of screenings, the main tenance of a company doctor, the compul sory patronage of the company store?these aro the chief features of the miners' bill of complaint, and some of the items ap parently represent real injustice, crying for amelioration. There is plenty of room for adjustment, for arbitration. With the In fluences now active and susceptible of In vocation In behalf of peace and the resump tion of work, it should be possible In short order to persuade the operators to receive the men and the latter to approach their employers in a spirit of genuine concession on both sides for the sake of their "common welfare. ? The playwrights In search of unoriginal material have been strangely la*. No one has undertaken to dramatize Mr. Bryan's speech of acceptance. David B. Hill has occasion to send in frequent calls for the ambulance, but not for the political hearse. ^ Wharton Barker does not get nearly as much abuse as he could easily utilize for advertising purposes. -?? ?. A year ago everybody was talking about "liquid air." Now the topic is plain ora tory. .SHOOTING STAHS. Concerning: Conslm. "I am glad," said Senator Sorghum, "that I have a soul superior to slang; otherwise I'd be tempted to inaugurate a persecution of Some harmless and useful members of society." * "Who are they?" "The men who peddle candles on the street. After 1 have been Interviewing men of wealth about our campaign fund, to hear these vendors offer to stop any kind of a cough for a few cents is absolutely mad dening." The Play. "The play's the thing," full loudly cried The actor, rich in fame. "Of course it is," the lass replied, "Provided golf's the game." Hot Amiable. "Isn't he one of these people who are very well met in a mixed company at the festal board, but whom you would hesitate fco take home to dinner." "No," answered Mr. Blykins. "On the contrary I'd much prefer taking him home with me, where there would be no excuse for his trying to make an after-dinner speech." In China. "In this country," said one mandarin, "a man cannot get an office unless he knows ail the proverbs of Confucius and other writers who have sought to inculcate princi ples of honesty." "Yes," answered the other, "and after he gets appointed he can't hold his Job unless he Immediately forgets all about them." An Optimist. "What is an optimist?" asked the youth who would fain become wise. "An optimist," answered the man who has become wise at a sacrifice of amiability, '"is a man who having no coal bills or other household expenses himself takes it for granted that everybody can be Just as light hearted as he Is."

Mr. Bryan's discussion of the silvor ques tion is naturally the weakest part of his letter. His contention for "the golu and silver coinage of the Constitution," for ex ample, is either meaningless or disingenu ous. The Conetkutlon says nothing about the ratio?32 to 1 would be Just as consti tutional as to 1, and twice ae honest. Equally unworthy is Mr. Bryan's repetition of the platform demagogy that the demo cratic party is "not willing that other na tions shall determine for us the time and manner of restoring silver money to Its ancient place as a standard money." No foreign nation cares "a tinker's dam" when or tn what proportion we coin our sliver money. The fatuity of arguing for a weak, lost cause was never more apparent than In Mr. Bryan's following of the wlll-o'-the wlsp of 16 to 1. ? e ?? The Supreme Conrt. From the Chicago Journal. It is possible that the next President may have the appointing of seven new Judges of the Supreme Court. Seven of the Judges may. If they choose, leave the bench within the next four years. One of them. Justice Grey, has reached the age limit, and three others. Chief Justioe Fuller and Justices Shiras and Harlan, will do so before 1904. Justices Brewer, Brown and White have each served for over ten yeaj-s. Under these circumstances. In the event erf Mr. Bryan becoming our next President, the Supreme Court may be altered In such a way as to insure decisions holding an in como tax to be constitutional; that gold and silver are the money of the Constitution; that the act of establishing the gold stand ard Is Illegal?completely reversing the policy of the present administration in re gard to our acquisitions and the application of constitutional provisions thereto. ? e Kentucky and Shirt Waieta. From the Fall River Herald. "The Kentucky legislature has enjoyed a good deal of unenviable notoriety (luring the last few months. bat the latest more on the part of that august body will go far fcownrd restoring It to favor In the eye? of the world. A resolution, which la certain to paaa, wag Introduced In tha house of representatives yesterday granting per mission to all the lawmakers to appear In shirt waists, and without suspenders.

The better element In the Kentucky Jeglslature had a worthy object In view when tt granted permission to all law makers to appear In shirt waists. By thus encouraging the latter to discard their coats and vests the temptation to carry concealed weapons has been removed and the concealed weapon is the bane of the Kentucky legislator.
