It ranks i with best appraisements that have b-en ofTVreil of one of the worthiest and most attractive men in our history. And vet wh n Mr MeKinley died, only s \ >?*.?:<* ago, Mr. Hughes was unknown of a small professional and church tir e- in New York. Mr. MiKinley prob an!y n? \ t r heard of him.

Gas for the Suburbs. It has been discovered that the law gov e-nir.g th.. nlatlons of the gas companies of the I*lst let and the citizens is vague concerning the power of the local adminis tration to comp.1 tlK? laying or mains in newly opened sections, to accommodate would-be consumers. Certain phrases sug gest that It was the Intention of Congress to bring the corporations under a degree of compulsion In this regard, but whether the specifications of new mains for private consumption W"re to be drawn by the Com missioners or by Congress remains a matter for settlement. It Is apparently plain that Congress did Intend that the Com missioners should have the power to com pel the laying of mains for the lighting of streets for the preservation of the pub lic safety, but It failed to provide any penalty for non-compliance with such orders, stipulating that failure to obey eliouid be reported to it by the Commla sioners. presumably for the purpose of lay ing ground for new enactments of a punl tlv character. It mav be that Congress did not contemplate the possibility of a recalcitrant attitude on the part of the corporations and that It assumed It to be sufficient for the purposes of granting 11 luminant to private consumers to vest the Cornmlsslone-s with the power to require the laying of street-lighting mains. Such mains would doubtless serve private con sumers as well as the Pistrlct. In this situation the Commissioners can only call upon the residents of the suburb who have brought this matter to a focus, asking them to furnish specifications as to the streets and roads to be lighted. When this information Is supplied the Commis sioners may. at their discretion, order the laying of the mains, and it is then incum bent upon the gas company to comply, or stand subject to a reference of its refusal to the source of all local power. There should be no difficulty about grant ing the suburban dwellers light when a r-asonahle number have assembled in any section. The entire IMstrlct should al ways be rega-ded as an urban territory, and the dwellers In all parts of it should be placed upon the basis of enjoying, at a proper stage of their community develop ment. all the advantages and conveniences of city life. The disposition on the part of some Interests to regard the ancient boundary street as sharply delimiting the urban and suburban areas has had a de plorable effect In checking the outward gr< wth of tile cilv, v\ iiich should have been ? ncourag <1 in fact, by every possible^ m ans O; late years this line of limita tion has been g 'tier illy ignored and is 1' ing rapidly eliminated. It remains only for Congress definitely to enact legisla te n offli- ally wiping it out of existence. Mr. Bryan in Kentucky. The Kentucky campaign, which opened very promisingly for the republicans on stat ? issues, is taking on a national aspect. Secr?-tary Taft lias spoken on tlie one side, and will be followed by Mr. Cannon. Mr. Fairbanks and others, while Mr. Bryan will appear on the other side. The peerless leader is booked for six speeches, and may make more. What effect this change in the program will have on the situation Is a question. Mr. Bryan should feel at home in the Blue Crass state asking ' ? votes for the Go belites. He was a prime agency in fix ing Goehelism 011 the K<ntucky people. He toured tiie state ill Mr. Goebel's behalf, and after the election, which had gone against Mr. Goebel. gave his ind< rsenient to the contest for robbing the republicans of their victory. He is closely allied, therefore, with the men who inherited the stolen goods and are now trading on them. One 0/ these men is Gov Beckham, who wants to be t nited States senator, and anotiier is Auditor Huger, who wants to be governor. Some of the ben ?ticiaries. however, have passed, or are passing, from the field. One is Mr. Blackburn, who supported the Goebel contest, and as his share of the spoil was unopposed for the senatorsiiip. Afterward he came under the displeasure of the machine, and was retired. He played in luck, and fell into the arms of Mr. Roose v -lt. Who gave him a job in Panama, where he now is. Mr. Bryan, therefore, will nils3 the voice of Mr. Blackburn when he reaches Kentucky this year. That voice, which so often shook the shite with denunciation of republicans and republicanism. Is now a sort of republican voice, reverberating in the big ditch on the isthmus Another man who. although not absent from ti.e state, will be of but little service to his party in this campaign is Senator McCreary. As chairman ? - the state com mittee he worked for the benefit of Gov. Beckham in the latter's race in his own name for governor, and carried the day. But this did not save him last year when tie asked for a second term in the Senate. Gov Beckham himself appeared as his op ponent in the primary and won the nomina tion. That piece of red sandstone did Its depressing work, and the subsequent pro ceedings have interested Mr. McCreary Ottil ia nguidiy. Still, rhere are many left, and Mr. Bryan, whirling from town to town on his special train, will tii. 1 the dynasty which he helped to socket in fraud in good fig I: ting trim. Roosevelt's Future. The London Spectator nominates Mr. Roosevelt for "proconsul to guide and in spire the reconstruction of the Philippines." There is bigger work neare home. If Mr. Koosevelt is to retire from the presidency in March, l'.ioi*, and does not want a period of rist or travel, he should by all ne-ans go to Panama il It can be arranged and take charge of the canal work. That job would inspire him. Having been in augurated by him. it would appeal to him strongly. And should he be able to wind up the business and open the canal by, say 11*12, or lull. the accomplishment would be a tail feather even in his already richly decorated cap. The Philippine problem is j in fair si.ape, and nobody really expects it solved in the near future. But the canal j is pressing, and should be completed as soon as possible. ' ? ... Judge l.andis is b.-ing photographed so energetically as to suggest the possibility of his being pres nted with an honorary ' presidential boom. As a rule the woman who releases a hus band under tie circumstances which mark the Kail" case does not get much the worst of the bargain. Thomas I". Ryan's son Is organizing a big typewriter trust. Prohibitive prices for writing materials would paralyze many in dustries. The Standard Oil Company will naturally argue that all these indictments compel it to put up prices in order to pay lawyers. About the only point on which Fish and Harahan thoroughly agree is that it is bet ter not to talk for publication. It appears to be no easier to change the opinions of Mr. Foraker than it is to change those of Mr. Roosevelt. A Great Ocean Race. Today begins, at Liverpool, one of the most interesting of oil ocean races, a con test which is likely to have a material In fluence upon the future development of the high-speed passenger steamship. The Cu narders Lueania and Lusitania will sail simultaneously, with the intention of the rival captains to matte an absolutely even start at Queenstown, at which port both ships will call. Then they will press on steam and run for Mew York at top speed. The interest in this contest arises chiefly from the tact that it Is the first competi tion between an old-style reciprocating en gine vessel and a turbire-fltted ship. The Lucania Is the fastest member of the Cu nard fleet, the fastest, indeed, of all the British liners, and a high competitor for oceanic honors, now held by the Germans. The Lusitania is the first to be completed of the same company s twin ships, built on turbine models. She has developed an av erage speed of 25Vi knots In the course of a forty-elgiit-hour sea trial in conditions making for a thorough test. Her perform ance on that occasion was of the best char acter. and there is high expectation that she will break all records on her first trip, despite the newness of machinery and the comparative unfamiliarlty of crew an! offi cers with the new i?pe of vessel. Indeed, It is believed that the Lucania will serve chiefly as a pace maker. The rivalry between the English and Ger man shipbuilders for the ocean speed su premacy has been Intense for years, with the latter holding: the palm for several sea sons. It seemed as though there was little chance for the Er^llsh to regain the cham pionship until the successful trial of the Lusltanla restored hrpes. But even now there are preparations In Germany to adopt the turbine as the only means of regaining the lead In CltSt) the I.usltanla breaks all records. The new German liner Kronprln zessen Cecelie Is rated as the highest possi ble development of tiie reciprocating engine. Her propelling apparatus Is so gigantic that it Is doubtful whether larger proportions could be attained without passing the limit of strength and safety. The long-desired fi.ur-day boat Is not : et actually in sight, although the Lusitanla may closely approach that point when she has "shaken down" and gained her full stride. It Is likely that If the Germans un dertake to build a Giant turbine they will aim at the four-day mark, in which case the English are apt to go them one better and try for an even larger turbine steamer that will get Inside the tour-day limit. If this is accomplished the race for the three day point will then bo on in earnest. There Is no satisfying the craving for speed and time economy. . Psychic phenomena are claiming the at tention of some of the most eminent and respected scientists. Nevertheless a certain amount of doubt continues to assert itself concerning people who undertake ^to pro duce supernatural demonstrations on de mand for a prescribed fee. . The man who adopts the more modern method of commenting on the humidity is just as much of a bore as the one who used to as't If it was hot enough for you. There are towns sufficiently ungrateful to assert that the conduct of a Carnegie library is as much a matter of financial skiil as literary judgment. Many of Mr. Bryan's admirers feel that he can find ample occupation in explaining what he has already said without thinking up anything new. Gen Grosvenor probably feels that it will be time enough to talk wiien these are some reliable data at hand for mathemat ical calculation. Witness fees are altogether too small to tempt Rockefeller to make appearing in court a regular branch of the business. SHOOTING STABS. Complete Popularity Impossible. "Shr> never speaks unkindly of anybody," said one woman, "yet people dislike her." "Yes." answered the other; "when they go to her with unkind stories about other people they resent her lack of sympathy." The Future of the Horse. "In the course of time." said the motor ist. "the automobile will have completely superseded the horse." "Maybe so," answered Farmer Corntossel. "But it's my guess that there'll alius oo enough horses kep' around to tote folks bat home when the^-machinery breaks or the gasoline gives out." A Complex Computation. The summer girl has had her fling, Her gentTe gaieties must cease. And father's sadly figuring How much her freckles cost apiece. Responsibility. "Has he a proper sense of respons.ouity?" asked the earnest patriot. "I don't know," answered Senator Sorghum. "I sometimes f^ar he is one of those people who are so anxious to be financially responsible that they forget to be morally responsible." Business. "I note that you are always advising peo ple to economize." "Yes," answered Mr. Dustin Stax; "they can't possibly afford to buy the articles con trolled by my trust unless they do." A Gilded Existence. I>at candidate, he come aroun' A lookin' mighty neat. His voice it seem jes' like de soun' Of music, it's dat sweet. He step right up an' ta'ie yor han' An' wears a fren'ly look. An' when he smiles, why, goodness Ian", It's like a picture book! Hey cheers foh him through every mile He travels day by day. He stops an' talks a little while An' den de ban'll play. Hey gits elected now an' den. Hat change is what I hates. Hey's so much better comp'ny v/hen Dey's only canerdates! A "Heaven-Born Divorce." from the Philadelphia Inquirer. We have no patience whatever with the socialistic, communistic free-love ideas of poets and others who suddenly discover that they have married the wrong woman and seek to get a divorce on the ground that they have found a new heaven-born affinity. The case arousing so much at tention just now in the newspapers is one in point, but the novel feature is that the wife is quite ready to get the divorce and is on the best of terms with her rival, who is to take her plac- so soon as the bonds are severed. All talk some ballyrot about love being foreordained from the beginning of the world and matches being made in heaven and that sort of thing. These folks are either completely deceived or are try ing to deceive themselves, and there will pretty soon be a rude awakening and the sooner the better. Baltimore's Great Future. From the Baltimore Americun. A million Inhabitants for Baltimore by 1!>14? Why not? Prophets may see strange visions and dreaqjers dream while the skeptical scoff; but, after all, that com munity ov country is exceedingly unfortu nate which does not contain men who plan big things for the future, who believe the impossible possible and the improbable probable. There is need for such a dreamer in Baltimore?the man who will distract our attention from our present satisfied state of mind and set us thinking and working for the accomplishment of his larger visions.
