THE EVENING STAR.
WASHINGYON. THURSDAY ..*..... March 26, 1903. CROSBY B, NOTES.......... Editor. THE EVENING STAR has a regular and per. manent Family Circulation much more than the combined circulation of the other Washington dailies. As a News and Ad vertising Medium it has no competitor. Cr In order to avoid delays on account of personal absence. letters to THE STAR should not be addressed to any Individual connected with the office, but simply to THE STAR. or to the Editorial or Business Departments, ac cording to tenor or purpose. Ireland. The people of the United States will hope for < <mplete success for the Irish land bill. They accept it without study, and with but limited information as to details. The mat ter appeals to them in its general aspect and intent. It is designed to settle griev ances more than a century old, and which have baffled the best efforts of English and Irish statesmen during all that time. The measure, therefore, has claims to the high est consideration. March 25. 190d. Indeed, will probably be remembered as one of the 1 great days in the history of the British par llament. Irish cheers for an English policy I have been rare, but thode heard yester t day were hearty. With the Irish secretary e pleading Ireland's cause, and the most pow erful Irish landlord and the most powerful f champion of the Irish tenantry shaking r hands and "nominating their poison" to gether at the house of commons' bar, the spectacle must have been remarkably in- t spiring. The sympathy of the American people s has always been strongly with the Irish. c The feeling has prevailed not only that the 1: Irish were entitled to far better government t than they were required to support, but t that the English would themselves greatly t benefit by granting such a government. It a has seemed both unjust and shortsighted t to keep a portion-and so worthy a por- r tion-of the subjects of the empire so c cruelly and continuously under the harrow. s Mistakes have been made on both sides. The Irish leadership has not always been ' wise. But at last a workable and merito- s rious scheme of relief has been devised, by i which the Irish people are to have a real t stake in their country; and every friend of I Ireland everywhere may well rejoice. If j but a part of what is promised is realized. r Ireland in a few years should be both a e prosperous and a happy land. This matter marks conspicuously the very 3 great change which has come over British i; interests within a brief time. Three years ago they were at the lowest ebb ever s reached. The world was considering the o questton. Has Great Britain's power de parted? British statesmen themselves were r considering It. Today those interests ap pear to have reached a higher tide than a ever before. There is peace in South : Africa. with the Union Jack flying over all the disputed territory. The colonies are i firmly bound to the mother country, with I practical evidences of devotion to their c credit. And now Ireland is to be the scene c no longer of disorder, but of contentment e and industry. There has been, and there still remains. a big bill to pay. But big things cost big r - money. A Sample "Occult" Swindle. Scranton. Pa., furnishes the latest in- r stance of astonishing credulity on the part f of the dupes of the fake mediums, clair- q voyants and other self-styled profesieonal f occultists. About two weeks ago a man v named Mitchell and an assistant reached t -that town and distributed cards announc- 1 ing his remarkable powers as a penetrator I of the future and a reader of the past of others. His cards set forth the following 3 record of a single year's work: it "R-united 162 separated; brought around u :7 marriages; gained the love of- certain q ones. 420: located two buried treasures; lo cated 27 absent persons; overcame 698 ri vals." These cards attracted business. People u s came to him with all sorts of troubles. The man would go into a "trance" when the case was stated and on resuming his nor mal manner would advise the client to tie a little bag around the neck, to contain a document scrawled with cabalistic marks. Then under a strict injunction to secrecy the client was dismissed, to return the fol lowing night. The pperator would receive him then with an expression of deep anx lety arnd declare that It was necessary to work a still stronger charm. The client would thereupon be directed to go away and return with some large sum of money, grad(d according to apparent means of se curing It. The money in hand; the operator would reopen the bag and with wierd a passes apparently place the bills within it, 1: closing it securely and enjoining the client Is not to open it for a certain length of time. c Often as high as $170 was thus brought to the clairvoyant. But, of course, he merely "llimtlammed" the cash and placed dummy ~ envelopes In the bags. When the fellow it was arrested on the complaint of a susp!c tous patron It was found the upwards of c twenti' of Scranton's men and women were walking about with their little charms filled with waste paper which t-hey supposed were bills. It is believed that the fakir planned to work the city to the limit and then iscape to another place. He had re ceived several hundred dollars in fees be sides the money he took in the exchange( of packages. The scheme seems so pila I. a fraud on its face when stated that it ais a marvel any victims could be found for it. Yet these trickstera thrive.. It Is mournful to note the decadence ofr artisti fimilammery. Exponents of ex- t treme' culture who come over from Europe are not ttearly as funny no'r as ingenious as they used to be. Mr. 4leveland probably cannot help thinking that his chances as a candidate would at least be as good as Mr. Bryan's. Of course , France will always claim that I this Panama canal idea was more or less< a plagtiarism. Leading and Tollowing. In this day of agitation for a reorganiza tion of the democratic party and of amcious search for a presIdential candidate the At lanta t'onstjtution very wisely and peri siently suggests: "Let us stop looking for a 'leader' for a while and put ourselves :in shape to be led. Quit quarreling among oursi lves and turn our attention to the enemy.". The democracy found a leader in 1884, but the party proved to be in no condition to be ~ led. No sooner was Mr. Cleveland installed in office than the bitterest dissensions arose as to patronage; and these were followed by quite as bitter dissensions as to Issues. a 3&. Cleveland's tariff message, sent to Con gress in December. 1887, raised such a storm of protest from the protection demo crats that it was with the greatest diliculty< the free traders could hold him to the acratoh. The result was the loss of the race in 1888. There was no enthnklam fo,ri the candidate, and none conid be created. The party found a leader In 1802, bul 4 again It was in no conditIon to be led. Dis-c aenalons began froml the very day of a triumph at the poils. -Mr. Cleveland polatd I one way. and -the great mnajority of the I party pointed the other way. He oppos,'i 1 slier. The party supported siver. If re fuised to follow him Ia his war on the Shier- I man act, and -h tarhe6 to 'iedeapublcsn I for assate a4qv.A e.5ci mended a- sorials s an the tasW us on. The demoerate- of the Senate under r. Gorman's advice toot another line. A seated controversy resulted, and the effects (howed In the election of 188. Ther can Pe no doubt that- the divisions that were aused by the quarel between Mr. Cleve and and his party in Congress a't the fall, vinter and spring. of 1893-4 contributed argely to the defeat of the party In the ucceeding presidential race. In the light of this history the Constitu Ion's adjuration has much force. The tuestion is not so much what this man or hat man stands for, but what does the arty stand for. On personal grounds Judge ?arker. or Mr. Olney, would command sin ere respect as leader, but how far would he party follow either man? What, be .ides a change in the federal. offices by rhich democrats would succeed republi ans, would result from victory under eithet nan? What in the way of policies could he country expect? That Is the point; and t will take on added Importance every day 'rom now until - the: national. .convention raeet-s. The leader who can lead no urther than the polls may, after triumph ng there, do both his party and the coun ry Incalculable injury. How far and in rhat direction is the democratic party ready and willing to be led? W. E.- Mason, Editor. A dispatch from Chicago contain the fol wing information: "Former Senator William E. Mason is lanning to publish a newspaper. 'It is to e a weekly-a political weekly-devoted o preaching the gospel-of the oppressed of 11 nations. The new journal will be pub shed in Chicago. - Mr. Mason is looking or an advertising solicitor and general anager, and then hi will be ready to go head." While taking a leaf out of -Mr. Bryan's ook, Mr. Mason, It will' be- observed, goes Fr. Bryan one better. The Commoner was tarted In the interests of the oppressed f the United States only. Its founder had i mind no more than rescuing the down rodden of his own land from the metciless yranny of the 'money changers. He felt hiat he would be doing his full duty, and pretty big thing, if he succeeded in put ing everybody at home here on the high oad to prosperity. It was. the woe In his wn country which touched his heart and Et the presses at Lincoln to work: Mr. Mason's. sympathies are broader. 'hey take after his figure. He is.probably orry enough for tfie' oppressed of America, ut he. knows-he's asman of wide reading hat there are oppressed in other countries. 'he oppressed, indeed, are everywhere. nd so Mr. Mason will go to the universal escue. He will play no favorites. Wher ver there is a man who Is out of pocket nd down on his luck, that man is Mr. lason's brother, and he is to know there i a newspaper printed for him and plead rg his cause. It will pay that man to ubscribe-if he can raise the wind. For, f course, rescue business costs money. The circulation figures should be enor ious. Editions in German, French, Rus lan, Italian, Spanish, Turlish, Chinese nd other languages will probably run up ito the million copies, and these added the editions to be distributed here at ome and printed In English wilt keep Mr. [anon's pressmen stepping lively. Those f Mr. Mason's hated contemporaries who an show no figures higher than a million r so a day will looL painfully small by omparison. Mr. Mason has had no experience in jour alism. but there is every reason why he hould succeed in the profession. He talks tell, and while all good talkers are not ood writers, the writing faculty in some ieasure usually accompanies the talking iculty. He has humor-a most valuable uality in any profession. lie has great aith. H believed--or so declared-that he rould succeed himself in the Senate up to he very day the republicans of the Illinois ,gislature. with the most unfeeling unanin :y, elected tile other man. No name .a announced for the publication. 1hy not do the brave thing~and defy all 1-natured observation by calling it Guff. A niversal rescuer by that name would sound uite well, and smell quite sweet. I I The men who tried to run an automobile p the Capitol steps must have come across ome of the old 'fanciful pictures of the apitol building in use as a railroad round ouse, drawn. during the hot. days of the rade-crossing fight.

Radium, It is said, will give forth heat in efinitely without losing, *elght. It is so are, however, as to cost upwards of $1,000, 00 a pound.

Possibly she hopes that there will e more pra'ctical Interesit shown In the lea of pensioning ex-queens than in that f pensioning ex-siaves. Sir Thomas Lipton's American friends ope that his opinion as to the superior .y of his new boat over its predecessors correet. There will be all the more redit in beatring it: With both coal operators and miners ex reasi-ng satisfa'ction, there is little encour gement left for the peoplle wlio persist in redicting a terrific clash between capital nd labor. There Is no assurance that if the Presi entI had omitted Chicago from his visiting ist Mayor Harrison would not -have -inn sated that the town had been snubbed. Some of the celebrities now In Washing an do not care whether the trusts domi ate or not if they can only tell whether be favorite Is due to win.

For Decency and Health. -From the Baltimore American. Philadelphia is now making a test of new city ordinance which aims to preven spitting - on the pavements, in any publi building or other place where men congre gate, in street cars and public conveyance of all kinds. Inspired by the action of Philadelphia, th board of trade of Washington, which seem to be a body well supplied with public spirit has taken up the subject and has appeale to the Commissioners of the District to en act police regulations similar to the Quake city's ordinance. Laying entirely aside the question of pub lic health, there is a question of public de cency involved in this matter which shouii encourage the .passage of such measure and their strict enforcement. Expectoratioi in public places 'is largely an Amercai habit, and a very bad one at that. Th experience with street car regulations ha: proved that it can be stopped, and there I no good reason why the movemeut shoul not go further and put an end to the prac tice in all public places. There is .nQ q cuse for tolerating a-filthy habit wbibh' v ers sidewalks and the floors of public build ings with sputum whicl. is ,generally dia colored with tobacco, and which;" *hethe it breeds disease or not, is offensive and dis gusting. Public decency should suppbrt thi movement, and Baltimore should unite wit] other American cities in a successful cru sade that shall end the practice: - Joys of the Silver Standard. From the Mexican Herald. The business man here cannot complai of lacking the element of excitement whei he has the gold premium to deal with dal by day. It soars like an Andean condor a times, then drops majestically from it place in the upper financial atmosphere an( manages to keep us all guessing. Peopli from abroad sometimes wonder how thi business man here gets along without tha stock ticker to inject a little excitemen into his life. A fortnight's stay here satis flea these people that we have% in the gob premulm, all the element of gambling tha any one can reasonably demand. Thei there is the hazard of the future; nobod: can tell what silVer will be worth a yea: from now, what -is the probable run 0 prices, what the sums agreed on In con tracts are to pan out 'in the greater world money-gold. Coal and Iron Police. FronI the Philadelphia Press. It is not at all surprising that the coa strike commission should condemn the sy stem of coal and Iron police in this state. It has been the subject of severi and just criticism by people in the coa regions for years. It has been made ob jectionable not alone to strikers, but t< representative citizens who havo had- ex perience with its operation. The systen is Inherently bad. It grew out of the ne cessity for an emergency force that could be quickly got together. I I Too Ma-ny Dogs. From the New York Mail and lixpress. The common cur has had his exuberan day a little too long in this free-heartei and easy-going metropolis. The multiplica tion of cases of hydrophobia here-thirteei deaths have been attributled, rightly eo wr.ongly, to that cause in the last sia months-Is pretty good proof that there hai been far too much liberty allowed to thi species. The- streets in certain sectIons of the city are infested by totally unrestraine< -inongrels which, though they may be - esi *numerous, are certainly not less Ignoble than those which play the role of scaven gers at Constantinople. The biting of chHi dren by these animals is a common occur retnce. Choke the Spitters! From the Providence Telegraup. All who value the common decencies 01 life, and most people do when they stop ti think about them, will approve thle deter. minat-ion of the street railway companies ta put a stop, so far as that may be possible to the unnemmry, unclean and disgusting practice of expectorR-ting in the cars. Be. side the objection to the practice because el ita flthiness there is the stronger objectici to its danger. Expectoration, with its ao compeniment of disease germs, is a menact to health, and no person hea a righlt tc spread contagion. -The health a,uthoriti of this and many other cities have recog nised the- danger of the spitting habit ir public and have caused the adoption and publication of ordinances and police reguia, tins to restrain It.
