S Carding to tener or perpeae. Where is That Reading Coal? The local coal dealers who were examined yesterday by the Senate investigating com mittee made an excellent showing for them selves. As far as the case went they ad duced proof that they have sold coal for only a fair profit, being forced by the in adequacy of the supply of Reading coal, which they have agreed to retail at $7.23 and 37.50 a ton, to go into the open market and purchase coal from independent opera tors, retailing it at $12. One dealer, perhaps the largest in the city, testified that hc is able at present to secure only two and a half tons of Reading coal a day. This is certainly an extraordinary state of affairs In view of the promises by the Read ing corporation to ship at least fifty caTs daily to Washington and the statements of railroad officials to the effect that approxl mately that number of cars have come here. This means a daily receipt of at least 1.750 tons of Reading coal. It may be true, and If so the fact can readily be established. that the great bulk of this coal goes to the government departments and the larger users. But until that fact is shown the public will wonder what becomes of the cheaper coal promised and appar ently actually sent here. It Is suggested that the shortness of the Reading supply and the comparative abun dance of the independent higher-priced coal point to a secret combination between the larger operators and the smaller, the for mer selling coal to the latter at rates which net larger profits than a direct sale to the public. If such a connection exists it is abominable and Its exposure cannot come too soon. If Washington were the only city where the Reading coal does not find its way to the consumer in sufficient quantities to keep the prices down It might be con tended that the independents have sent the bulk of their coal here to make the most of a short market. But from other cities, save perhaps Philadelphia, comes the same story. In New York the other day the Reading officials virtually acknowledged that the independents had secured control of the market. In normal times the independents mine only ten or at the outside perhaps fifteen per cent of the anthracite coal. Their pro duct is.not enough to affect the prices in any city,' much less to dominate the fuel situation in the entire eastern section of the country, What has happened that now this ten or fifteen per cent of the hard coal supply can force out of the market the eighty-five or ninety per cent of trust coai whieh presumably is held strictly to the comparatively low rate of the October scale? It is now the duty of the representatives of the Reading and other companies allied with it to show what has become of their coal and at what prices it has been sold to retailers and through them to consumers. When these large corporations exacted the October agreement from the dealers they virtually assumed a responsibility to holI those dealers to a strict performance. Now Is their oppo'rtunity to prove bad faith on the part of the dealers, if it exists, or to confess their inability to carry out their own side of the bargain. More light, and nore coal! Progress Toward Settlement. The Venezuelan government's reluctant accepitance of the German and English proposals leading to arbitration opens the way almost directly to a settlement of the dispute by rational methods. Minister Bowen is to come to Washington to serve In the preliminaries-which may prove, in fact, to meet all the needs of the case-as the representative of the Venezuelan gov ernment. Were it not desirable that no more time be lost in the settlement it might be questionable policy thus to enter the United States, through its diplomatic officer, as a factor. But there is no danger under the circumstances that Mr. Bowen's presence as Venezuela's representative in the drafting of the protocols will be re garded by England and Germany as mak ing the United States a direct party to the agreement or a sponsor for Venezuela's later performances. England and Ger many have agreed that the blockade shall be maintained during the negotiations for arbifration. This must mean that It shall be continued until the case is finally sub mitted to The Hague, or settled out of court. There is no reason for the main . tenance of the blockade beyond the date of submission to the arbitration tribunal. . One of the most ramous disreputable re sorts in Paris has been closed. However there Is no rerason to hope that the town is following the example of New York and trying to reform. Reciognizing Washington's Intellectuality as he does, Mr. Carnegie may yet be tempt ed to put his name in our city directory. New York and a New York Nan. "'The talk that the mouth Intends to make the next democratic nomination for the presidency, and that New York's expression on the subject will not be as influent-ial as in former years may be received with sev eral grains of salt.-Washington Evening Star.' "'Nay, take it with a barrel full. New York will wield an influence in the next national convention equel to any record of the past, and perhaps greater.--New York Sun.* "Of course. the, state of New York will be a great presidential battle ground, as usuaL. This Is a fact of which the demo crats of the west should take particular notice. The democrats of the state will. It follows, have much influence in the demo cratic nationali conventlon, not because they have all been conducting themselves of late in a commendeble manntr, hut because the party will nel-d the elfectoral vote, and will be digging for it as industriously as the boy was digging for the ground hog, and under similar inspiration. The neces sity of carrying New York for the demo cratic ticket is as plain as the multiplica tion tabl. ."-Clncinnati Enqluirer. The importance of New York emphasizes the importance of going there for the can didlate. Why talk about Mr. Olney. Mr. Gorman, or Mr1. Anybodiy-else unless It can be shown :hat lhe would be stronger in Nt w York than a son of the soil? Mr. Olney is unknown to the de'mocrats of the state ex cept as a II oduct of the second term of Mr. Cleveland in the White House. Would that make *K!her the Hill people or the Croker people enthusiastic in his support? Mr. Gorman Is very friendly with ex-Sena tor Murphy, but Mr. Murphy seems to have lost his "pull." Hie has never been friendly with Mr. Hill, and Mr. Hill is now the Smaster of the machine outside of the me Coming then to New York, we have, as 'matters now stand, Mr. Hill and Judge Parker. and democrats at a distance are canvassing their "point." with a lively de gree of Interest. Mr. . Hill Ia very well known. Tlhere are men who deny him abil Sty; who still insist that he is no more than a shrewd. "peaut" polician. This old ap praiement, hover. be. been largely re jested. Mr. HaR' one term in the Senate debater of excellent power, and a man of all-round sagacity on political questions. Nor does he lack courage. He voted against the German-Wilson tariff billa when Mr.-Cleveland, a -few days later, would go no further than withhold his signature. Judge Parker as a political quantity Is wholly unknown. Maybe it would be better to put the matter In a different form. Judge Parker Is not a political quantity at all. His friends are trying to confer that honor upon him. Personally he is accredited with excellent and attractive qualities. As a judge be ranks high. But as the leader of a party he would have to be taken entirely on trust. He is a democrat, and voted for Mr. Bryan for President, but he did not, and does not now, believe in the leading Bryanite issue. Will his party take him on trust? Will it put the national standard Into his hands on the strength of his per sonal worth and the esertio that had he been nominated last year he would have been elected governor of New York? Germany and the CanaL The Philadelphia Press does not believe that Germany is trying to buy the Panama, canal, and says: "No foreign government can bull% the Panama canal without coming in contact with the Monroe dostrine. The United States would not permit Colombia to sell to any European government. - As the canal Is not expected to be a paying Institution at the start, there is -no probability- of any private company completing it. The only canal that will be construed to connect the two oceans will be one constructed by the United States. That Is certain." Here may be a text for a fresh outburst on the part of those people at home and abroad who hold that the Monroe doctrine is a piece of "colossal Impudence." Colom bla not at liberty to treat with whom she pleases as to her own territory? She must treat with us or with nobody? Is not this an offensive assumption of author4ty to ward a government as independent as our own? If this is allowed can any Umit be placed on the operations of the Monroe doc trine? And yet the Press states the case accu rately.' Neither Germany nor any other foreign power would be permitted to build and control an isthman canal. The terri tory acquired might be small In extent, but the hbportance of It to the power control ling it could scarcely be overestimated. In peace or In war that power would exercise an influence In this hemisphere, and for that matter in the affairs of all the world, which the United States would have early occasion to regret. To state the case In this way is but to show alsd the importance of complete American control of the canal. Built with our money, within the sphere of our as serted influence, it must be a factor in our sovereignty and a part of our system. It Is not designed for other purposes than the good of mankind, but that good must be done in our own way, and In the broadest spirit of progress. This much, however, we owe to the world: As we assert the right to build and control the canal we should lose no further time in the premises. The work should be in augurated 'at once and pushed forward as rapidly as possible. The world waits. The developments of the past few years have afforded an impressive object lesson in the consideration of this question. We have the money. We have the spur of a national sentiment well crystallized and repeatedly elpressed. It lsthe one great question with us which has effaced party lines, and made apparent the -reward- awaiting the public servants fortunate enough to put the final touches to negotiations too long protracted. I6 I0 Dr. von Holleben. In the gossip from Berlin respecting Dr. von Holleben the kaiser is represented as resenting his ambassador's failure to in duce President Roosevelt to arbitrate the Venezuelan controversy. We may very well doubt that. Dr. von Holleben's activity in that direction, whatever it may have been. was circumscribed by extreme difficulties. The kaiser's desire was in the balance against American sentiment, and that sen timent was overwhehningly opposed to the accejtah-ce by' the President of the post of arbitrator. The German ambaesador could not possibly have turned the scale. His whole possible usefulness was in simply presenting his sovereign's wishes. So far as authoritative information goes Dr. von Holleben's talents at this capital have been successfully employed in the Interests of good relations between his government and that of the United States. President Castro has probably made arrangements that will enable him, in case the worst omes, to follow Oom Paul's cx ample and settle down in Europe with a comfortable income. Nordau predicts that China will be the scene of the final struggle of supremacy among nations. If there Is any trouble afoot, China Is pretty sure to get a large share of It. With Mr. Penrose as a colleague and Mr. Pennypacker as governor, Mr. Quay is justified in expecting very little of the fric tion which so often mars political assa clations. It Is cheeringly and positively predicted that the coal famine will cease to be seri ousiy felt within the next three months. Senator Tiliman's present display of sup pressed emotlon Is one of the most Inter esting exhibitions he has yet given. The Shah of Persia has dismissed all ex cept ii0 of his 1.700 wIves. This is at least a step in the right direction. I I Mr. Bill Devery Is nursing his grievances with a business-like persistence that prom ises trouble sooner or later. So long as they can declare the dividends the trusts do not care who Introduces the bills In Congress. I I I Bnsiness Ways Here and in Englnd Lord Charles Beresford, who Is well known in the United States, Is on his way to make us another visit. Private affairs will occupy a portion of his time, but he will improve the opportunity to give some further attention to our business growth and the secrets of it. On the eve of his de parture from the other side he said In an interew: "In my look around I hope to pick up in formation rcgarding the administrative ele ment in American business. That's where America excels. We do not know how to administer here. Our workmen are as good as theirs, but our administrations are feeble. Our companies want lords and com moners as directors, who know nothing about business. Yours demand straIght business men, who not only know, but put their money into the concerns of which they are directors. If I can teach the people here to adopt American business methods we csn then have greatcr Intercommunica tion of capital and interests between the two countries. It Is the only way, and once England and America get on a profit-shar Ing basis the wovld will not dare to inter fere with either. We neither of us will stand for a political alliance, It is Impos sible. Changing parties and the sentiments of both countries forbid it. I frankly con fess theat a business alliance grould be more to Engiand's than America's advantage. America can look after herself. She can fight the world, either from an economic or any other point of view. They have not begun to realize here yet that the long pe riod during which Great Britain held the monopoly of trade Is over. They do not know the vadue of a scrap heap, of the mninimumi cost of production or of the vol ume of trade. 'the coming centurl will be one of business. IMy trying to aselulve a community of business interests and math odsn between America and England I be Neys I shall be doing much towarditben a century of peace. ben "You put your brightest se Into busi ness. We put thsen Into pt the av and the army. That has got to e oaa a lot more 4nformation in my pocket which will further these ends in parliament and elsewhere." It is often the complaint with us that we put too many oC om brightest men into business. We' aseibe much of our 'trouble In the admInistration of publc affairs to the fact that the rewards of business are proving more tempting than those of poll tics. The pilE of our forces upon leaving college, and for some years while their faculties are sharpest and their energies greatest, have private rather than public station in mind, and are more oceupied with building up large fortunes than great publio reputations. At a mpuch later day some of them turn to politics, but more with the view at resting from the labors and cares of commercial life than giving themselves strenuously to tthe real-require ments of office. The remark has been attributed to more than one mai of shining executive talents serving in private station, "I can't afford politics. The expenses of securing recogni tion are large, and all official salaries In this country are small, I must provide for the future. Mry children are growing up, and I enust start them if possible well In life. The scale of living is now high, .and Is getting higher all thp time. What is five thousand a year to a man with my respon sibilities? No, not until I am independent financially will I be able to give a thought to holding public office." It would probably be a good thing for Great Britain If a larger number of her brightest men turned to business, and for us if a-larger number of our brightest men turned in the prime of their powers to poli tics. Lord Charles Beresford's observations are Interesting, and lend themselves readily to no little speculation. And they are all the more valuable as coming from an Englishman who is now, and for years has been, very friendly to America. John L. Sullivan is entitled to complain of the injustice of the public. No one ex hibits any Interest in him unless he be comes drunk and disorderly. .- I0 The democrats who desire a new leader are not quite prepared to give him definite assurances concerning a destination. "Lucky" Baldwin, Ill and needy, is an other example of the Irony of fate. I.00 SHOOTING STABS. In Doubt. "Herbert calls on me every'evenlng," said the confiding girl. "Don't you think that Is a sign he really cares for me?" "I can't be sure," answered Miss Cayenne, "whether It Indicates that he is in love, or that coal is scarce at his house." The Exact Standard. No flower in nature has been met With lines and curves precisely set, Nor yet a picture nor a song, Which some one did not vow was wrong. An Inevitable Halt. "There Is a limit to what the most liberal philanthropy can accomplish." "There is," answered the man of millions. "We can donate libraries, but we cannot compel some people to prefer Herbert Spen cer's works to 'Mabel's Mad Marriage,' or 'The Red Rover's Revenge,' and similar library productions." Untempted. "I am glad to note," said the friend, "that gambling Is a vice that has no temptation for you." I - "None whatever." answered Senaior Sorghum. "I am unable to find any excuse for a man's risking his money when there are so many sure things lying around beg ging for attention. Where to Apply. "Where are the snows of yester year?" asked the young person who quotes poetry. "I don't know about the snows," answer ed the man with the marble heart; "but If you want to discover the whereabouts-of the Ice of yester year you can do it.by p terviewing the Ice trust next summer." The Frost. Zip! 'Tis the frost! Like an arrow it dies And the hands of the school boy are stung till he cries; And sometimes the wounds that It makes are so deep That the victim forever must sink into sleep. It comes like a shaft from a cowardly foe And the brave and the young and the fair are laid low; Small good are the rags which the beggar enfold, For often 'twill pierce e'en an armor of gold. 'Tis time to assemble humanity's clan And join to give battle the best that we can; We'll build us a fortress In Charity's name And rejoice in a victory worthy our fame. I ' * Becognizing Diplomatic Service. From -he Philadelphia Press. President Roosevelt In the changes and promotions he has just made In 'the diplo matic positions abroad has recognized and given additional force to the policy and practice which treats our diplomatic service as one homogeneous whole. The long serv ice of Mr. Arthur Sherburne Hardy in Per sia, Greece. and Switzerland Is recognmsed by promotion to Spain, a post always of lme portance to Amaerican diplomacy. Dr. David Jayne Hill, who has four years and a half discharged, with ability, efficiency and suc cess, a full equipment and a weighty judg ment, the duties of first assistant secretary of state, passe to Switzerland, enterIng the active diplomatic service. Mr. Charles Page Bryan, who has been In Brazil, passes to Portugal, the same language being spoken at Lisbon and Rio Janeiro. Mr. Francis B. Loomis Is promoted from LI, bon to Washington, succeeding Dr. Hill as first assistant secretary of state. Mr. Loomis entered our service abroad a min ister to Venezueia. He had already distin guished himself as a correspondeht. He served at Caracais with fidelity, and it wa no fault of his thalt peculiar conditions forced his removal to Portugal. There his service, his experience and his familiarilty with Venezuela make -his transfer to the State Department a promotion for hbimself and a wise -and judicious appointmient for the public Interest. Germnany and the Danish West Indies. From the National Geographie Magazine. Germany has always wanted a naval sta tion In the West Indies, but has been un able to obtain one on account of the Mon roe doctrine. Some years ago Denmark of fered to sell the Danish West Indies to the United States, but the United States Con gress did not accept. Recently another treaty was made and ratified by the United States Congress. but this time, for some un known, mysterious reason, Denmark re fused to sell. Why ? It is well known that Germany has always wanted Denmark, and if by some peaceable means the kingdom of Denmark should become a state of the Ger man empire, the Danish West Indies would not have changed sovereign,, but yet the German fleet could 'have its station there. Would the Monroe doctrine interfere with this arrangement? eonomics T'hat Come High. From the Baltimore News. Certainly the object leson furnished by the rise of prices (by the Standard Oil Cogi pany) ought to be sufficient to open the eyes of all persons to the extreme thinna.n of the plea that the great monopollgt com binations serve the public by the -economies which they Introduce In production. Of what benefit are these economnies to the public If the price is not regulaedf b c of production, as it is under areieo effective competition, but solely by "what the traffic wfil bear?'
