'Haying Time" In Capital garng. It takes a long time to enlighten the country in regard to the iscal relations of the District and the general government. It would seem that by this time, after the organic act fixing those relations had been in force for twenty-ive years, and under annual discussion In both branches of Con gress, such a comment as the following by the Sioux City Tribune would be Im possible: "The District of Columbia recognises that this Is the time to make hay, and out of an overrich treasury it is given 9,3K8MO in this year's appropriation bill." The Tribune apparently does not know. and perhaps will not until this matter reaches Its attention, that of the $RA,OV00 carr:ed by the appropriation bill more than o.. -nalf comes out of the pockets of the taxpayers of the people of the District, in larger proportion than prevails in the aver age of the eighteen cities on the census lists with 200,000 and more of population. "More than half," it is to be noted, for despite the pledges given by the govern ment in 1M Congress has repeatedly dur ing recent years forced the District to pay all of certain charges, notably for street extensions, planned for the development of the capital upon a national scale. In con sequence of these infractions of the organic act, the act of partnership, each appropria tion bill contains large Items checked ex clusively against the District's revemmes going to make up the total of the budget. Newspapers outside of the District have generally recognised the truth that it is wise and economical to press vigorously all the works which are pending or in prospect necessary to bring Washington up to the appropriate scale of beauty and municipal completeness. During the past few years there has been a notable awak ening to the fact that the government has not fulfilled its pledges or done its duty by the country in the matter of capital making and the great project of the park commission was bailed as a revelation not only of the opportunity which here awaits the capital makers, but of the importance of steady advances In the prosecution of public improvements. This was most grati Oing both to the citizens of Washing ton. who have cheerfully borne their share of the cost despite their diminished com mercial opportunities here in the District, and to the zealous friends of the Greater Washington in Congress who see the Dis trict in its true aspect as the nation's center. There should in the prosecution of these works, in only a part of which the District is financially interested as a partner, be no question of the Immediate state of the treasury. Too often in the past have the projects for developing the capital been halted because of some temporary strin gency. In large part the present unfinished aspect of Washington is due to this past policy of "making hay when the sun ehinei" only. .Just the other day Congress refused to permit the District to provide by means of a federal advance at interest a fund out of which it could certainly and uniformly meet Its share of the cost of some of the pending great permanent works. Had the principle thus rejected been adopted by the government years ago, placing the great enterprise of capital mak ing on a business-like basis w%th an as surance of a steady flow of funds, Wash ington would now have attained much closer to the Ideal which every patriotic American cherishes for the seat of the government. IeI The Cold Snap. The cold wave finds Washington cheerful, far more so than usual at this time of year. The season has been exteptionally mild. Only last week several days were marked by a spring-like balminess which caused many to lose faith utterly for the time In the prescience of the ground hog. But last right's visitation amply verified the weather-wisdom of the little creature, the th,ermometer falling rapidly until It toucihed a minimum of 16 degrees, while there Is enough of a stock of cold airs in reserve to send It down, the forecasters expect, to about 5 degrees above zero between now and 10 o'clock tomorrow morning. That will be the lowest temperature of the sea son and will unquestionably pinch severely In some households, where the coal supply, notwithstanding the recent fall in the rates, Is low. Had this cold wave come a month or six weeks ago It would have found the city ex posed to Its severity with a minimum of preparation. Coal was still at famine prices, and scarce at that. The average house hold stock was probably less than a ton. A single week of such weather as now pre vails would have exhausted It. But provi dentially there was n.d emergency and the city escaped a degree3 of suffering which might have amounted to a veritable dis aster. Now there is ample consolation, even while fingers are nipped and ears frost bitten. In the reflection that the season is almost closed. Although the calenddrs do not grant that spring opens until March 21, four and a half weeks hence, actual experi enee places the end of the season of severe weather much earlier than that. In all likelihood three weeks more will finish up the sharp weather. Following this cold wave there is almost certain to be a period of mildness, and It is beyond all chances that tnere will be more than fifteen days of really cold weather.. With the coal stocks ample and the prices low all. but the very poor can face the situation with equanim ity. For those 'poor people there must -be provision and it Is not to be doubted that the generous public will at once furnish the funds necessary for their prompt relief. The country will be once mere reminded that George Washington was a great man, but the number of people who 'know his exact opinions on some public questions will remain painfully small. The Insinuation that an eminent Euro pean diplomat has been acting as a wise agent Is too horrible for words. Too much thrift Is almost as dangerous as none at an. see The In=aponis le=adal. The arrest In New Hampshire of ex-Mayor Ames of Minneapolis revives Interest In the - municipal sanalt which a few months ago shocked the country, 'even though New York. St. Louis and other commumnities had shown the extent to which city aminista. tions can be orrupted. The capture Is as eneouraging sign, indicating that Uane. apoilsis determined to make an example of th ltefrmer mnayer ad wRM not alloiw the matter .to drop. saw that the city has been to a large degree puSed of the biaek enaBers who thrlved under' the Amaes ri dee Thd evl 'edmatean=h lla sap.m. eompared we 90e bflop4ints d=ente wah thorn whtek wse musae kl th. Lesow of ofei-helders had bee fttngt= of the tunds eosted trm the koesr0 of diep utable resorts and law-,r.*hing 1lo1 keepers. At its bead was the e , who -had been several times elected to the 011e. Per a time the system was so beret that it was impoepe for any newpapaer to a. cure eouvicting evidenase agaist the crew of blsckmails and bribe-givers and takers. The ots law departent was as srrut as the administrative, while the police were so thoroughly corrupted that it was virtu ally Impossible to have arrests made in the interest of decency and order. When at last the corruptionists, emboiened by their success, lessened their caution and eon ducted their operations openly, the -public arose in its might and smote them at the next election. sweept the aandatative crooks out of fice and substituting honest men. One of these o1icials in particular proved himself worthy of the city's.cn& dence-4he public prosecutor. e .attaskd the augean stables regardless of the factJ that the police force was still tainted with the corruption, and after hard efforts se oured the installation of a grand jury com posed of citisens of the very highest char acter. These men went to large individual expense securing evidence and preparing cases for trial, and when at last indictments were returned the work of prosecution went on s*Iftly. Ex-Mayor Ames. who had been &he mainspring of the machine, had fied. however, and it was feared that he would never be overtaken. Now that he Is caught his trial and punishment should swiftly fol low. Steadily, if slowly, the truth Is being forced upon the public mind that it Is pooi ble to keep cities comparatively if not ab solutely clean. As long as the majority of the citizens themselves entertain high prin eiples it will.be possible to punish corrup tionists and to keep the administrative ma chine free from scandal. But that majority must be alert in all the phases of political responsibility. It Is only when the people who 'deplore bribe-giving and taking pas sively submit to what they consider the in evitable and remain away from the prima ries and the polls that the grafters and thieves succeed. There Is no excuse for any city suffering evils which are not tolerated or Indorsed by a majority. The Dog in the Xanger. Addick's position in Delaware Is now well defined. "I must be the boss." he says in substance to his opponents in his latest statement "If you will let me boss you and through you the whole state of Del aware. I'll-let you live politically. If you will not let me boss you I'll kill you polit ically.. Come into my caucus and let my twenty men outvote your ten and take two senators of my choosing, myself not being one of them; or stay out of caucus, name one of your own men and I'll name myself. Accept either of these propositions and you wil have such a chance for your white alley in the future as it may please me to give to men who have for upwards of .ten2 years stood between me and my ambitlmn. Reject them, and you are doomed to be crushed. In any event I win eventually." It was only the other day that the Gas Man caused a flurry by announcing a "withdrawal" from the senatorial race as a concession to harmony. Here Is the ex planation of his Idea of withdrawal and of harmony. It is on a par with his Idea of "bossing" a state. There Is the amplest evidence that Delaware has thriven on his contests for the Senate. Farmers have paid their back taxes, have lightened their mortgages and .have bought parlor organs and sewing machines and new farming Im plements. In such a small state a few thousands make a big impression. So that within the confines of Delaware there is a decided feeling in some quarters in favor of a continuation of the .eadlock. Addicks' election will settle the matter probably for several years and then the political graft will yield a nuch lighter returp. But what Is Delaware's kah) financially has 'been her loss nationally. She has had no senator now for nearly two years. For the past eight years, indeed, Delaware has been In a sorry state in the upper house of Congress. For only two of t$ose eight years has she had a, full complement of senators, between February 5. 1U97, when Mr. Keney took his seat, and March 8, 1899, when Judge Gray's term expired. Dur ing the two years elapsing between the re tirement of Mr. Higgins, In March, 195, and the seating of Mr. Kenney thete was but one senator, and for two years after Judge Gray's term there was but one. %The country honore the men who are con stantly striving against Addicks' supcess, even though they May be prolongit Dela ware's political discomiture and her dis honorable prosperity. Commissiner- GarfleM. The appointment, of James Rt. Garfield to be commissioner of corporations, seems to meet the requirements of the case. Had a politician been choseni th'e prediction 'would have followd that sooner or later he would fall under the malign Influences of the cor porations. Had a student or politician been chosen the complaint would have followed that nothing practical could be expected of his labors. Mr. Garfild Is neither a profes sional politician nor a bookworm, but a well-informed man of affairs, who has ac quitted himself moat satisfactorily In .sev eral posts calling for good judgment, prompt decision and a clear head. More over. his personal relations with the chief of the department of commerce are cordial, and two young men of ambition and ability and such marked success ought to work yell together. Each has an -exceptionally fine opportunity and may be expected to improte It.

Dupes of "Get-=ch-Quick. From the New York World. The most astounding discovery In con nection with the raiding of the "get-rich quick" men in this city is the character of the men to whom -the swindling airoulars were sent. Upon the mailing lists are the' names of 30,000 clergymen, 100,000 phy siclans and other professional and mercan tile men in proportion. Of course not all these men "bit." If one in a hundred did so it was enough for the swindlers. But how could any educated man have been so foolish as to expect~ from the unknown "something for nothing?" How could any moral teacher or any healer of men accept profits which could only be gained at the cost of cheating others? eq| Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt, From the Worcester Spy. The absurdity of belting a train for any considerable time merely to suit 4he per sonal convenience of a railway official or to. gratify the caprice of some member of his family is evident tpany one who stops to thinkr about it. Absriy is scarcely the word to apply to the arbitrary conduct of the person who causes the long detention of a train loaded with passengers eager to reach their destination. It Is an act alto gether unfair, If not downright unsorupu-~ ious, and the time should come when any such act Is impossible. Beggars and Publicity. From the Chicago Chrenfcle. It 'is reported that the publicity feature of anti-trust legislation is the one shove all others to which Mr. Rockefeller objedts. -It is legislation to which all those patriots who plead poverty and ask Congress to help them out in their private business very strenuously object. They even object to giving up facts in regardl to their business to the .United States census bureau under strict pledge of secrecy. Must AdY~ertise. Froma the Phna.eipbia UBeord.
