year more keenly to recognize the fact
that they are preparing themselves for
the serious work of later years? In this
lies the test of any educational system.
It is not so much a question of how
high a scholastic standard Is main
tained by the pupils, how attractive are
the exhibitions of wo- . displayed
toward the close of the year. It is
certainly not a question of how many
pupils achieved distinction on the ath
letic field, or which school wins the
most prizes, or which has the most
popular fraternities. It may not even
be a question of which teacher has the
largest classes; indeed, the larger the
class the less likely It is to yield the
maximum of benefit to the pupil. The
rt<il success is scored by the school in
which the pupils, while treated as chil
dren and saved as far as possible from
the grind that makes them prematurely
old. are brought to understand that

preparatory and contributory, and that

When all ? ? said the equation resolves
down to two factors?tin teacher and
the pupil. The teacher may represent
an elaborate institution with many su
nerior officials and much administrative
machinery. She may be aided or hin
dered by the mechanism of school or
ganization But in any case her effi
ciency. her knowledge of human na
ture. her tactfulness. and finally her
professional equipment determine her
value as the representative of tlie state
in the process of making men and
women out of boys and girls. Given

tive structure might be swept away
and the schools allowed to rest upon
their own foundations. But teachers

Edward Butler. Boss.
An old-style political boss paid the
debt of nature in St. I.ouis the other day.
H. was rich, and his money had all been j
acquired in political activity. For years i
lie "ran the town." He was frankness
itself, and boasted that in the period oi
his power he had stolen many elections.
His name was Edward Butler. with
out education, he had risen from poverty.
He had the knack of managing men. and
exercised it. His motto was "get there."
He got there. The slums of St. l.ouis
obeyed him. and the usufruct of his in
tluence was gladly accepted by men
At last the town experienced an awak
ening. The people rebelled at the steady
and open boodling, and found a leader in
a young lawyer who had been elected
prosecuting attorney. Joseph vV. Folk
discovered a good deal to prosecute; and
in the face of many threats did his duty.
He broke up the boodling, and scattered
Among the boodlers prosecuted was
Butler. He was indicted, tried and con
victed on the charge of bribery, but won
on an appeal to a higher court. Ills
wealtn secured the best of lesal talent,
and the skillful maneuvering of skillful
lawyers brought him out of his tribula
tions. He did no "time."
But his power was broken. He was
unable to resume business at the old
stand. He was a marked man; and then
tne tow n had none beyond him.
And yet it is stated that Butler re
tained the friendship of many men of
gootl standing in tne community. He
was rough and tough, and disfigured by
his record, but it was said of him that
his v.ord was as good as his bond, and
that he had never deserted a friend. How
often that eulogy has carried a man of
The old bosses are passing, though
hossism is not. New times, new men;
new men, new methods. In every large
city is an element that responds readily
to what is called "doing business." The
Butlers had their way with it for a long
time, and, armed with it, created wealth
for themselves and power for others. In
one quarter they were democrats. In
another quarter tney were republicans.
l'he successors oi these men must find
new paths, and will. Wealth and power
still ailurt. While the fields for bosses
remain, bosses will develop. But it Is
something to believe that the era of bold
election highwaymanry has passed, and
that a closer watch is set now on the
polls than has hitherto been known.
The promptness with which the Beattie
case was handled has led to comparisons
with the expedition shown in the Crlppen
trial As a matter of fact the Beattie
trial shows to advantage, as the judge
sacrificed less time and dignity in an
effort to impress the importance of liis
Kudvard Kipling docs not hesitate to
speak disparagingly of America's social
tendencies. And many Americans re
garded the furoie which Mr. Kipling's en
terta'nlng but brusque literary style
created us one of the most significant
symptoms of relaxing standards.
A good solid vote for reciprocity would
be one means which Canada might em
ploy for the discouragement of undig
nified methods in influencing elections.

The Chinese Turmoil.
The Chinese situation grows more dis
quieting with eacli fresh dispatch from
the disturbed provinces. The people seem
to be thoroughly aroused against both
the government and the foreigners, and
it is with great difficulty that the Im
perial forces are preserving order in the
regions immediately surrounding the most
seriously affected province, Sze Chuen.
This province lies on the extreme western
border of China proper, adjoining Tibet.
It Is difficult of access, and consequently
the foreign gunboats are of little or no
use in effecting a rescue of endangered
citizens. There is reason to believe that
most of the missionaries and other for
eigners have escaped to comparatively
untroubled places, though there can be
no positive assurance of their security
until they are on board men-of-war, or
have reached Shanghai. Details of the
uprising are so meager that the whole
case Is virtually left to the imagination,
but it is not difficult to conceive the case,
with recollection of the happenings of
lOuo, which were fully described in all
their distressing circumstances after peace
had been restored. The Chinese govern
ment is much stronger now than It was
eleven years ago, and It is to be believed
that it will quell this revolt eventually.
For the sake of China it is to be hoped
that this ran be done without calling
upon the powers for assistance or the
organization of an international relief ex
pedition. Far eastern intrigue would be
greatly stimulated by such an outcome
of this disturbance, and in all likelihood
China would emerge from the affair with
curtailed territory, and with possibly at
least two of the powers lowering at one
another over the spoils.
At all events these discussions of Alas
ka's resources have served to do away
with the suspicions once so general that
Russia sold I'ncle Sam a gold brick. Per
haps the day will come when the Philip
pines, instead of being contemplated with
misgivings, will be the subject of the con

Russian assassins who select the the
ater as the scene of attack are likely to
get into trouble with grand opera per
formers. who resent anything that shafts
attention away from them.
The Kentucky judge who ruled that a

From ih^ l'l?-Telan<l Plain Dealer.
The Cleveland judge who proposes to
discourage "mashers' by sending them
where penal resrtaint makes street corner
loafing impossible will have the backing
of the public if he sticks to his purpose.
The "masher" is at heart a thug and
would become one actively if he had the
courage. The law should deal with him
somewhat upon that basis. Other cities
have had more frequent occasion to deal
with this brand of offender than has
Cleveland. But his habits are the same
everywhere. He belongs to a universal
brotherhood of undesirability. whose ex
termination by whatever means possible
is a public necessity.
Against the Sweatshop.
From the New York Times.
Nobody will try to defend the sweat
shop system. Its effects in the ill ven
tilated and poorly lighted homes of thou
sands of women and children of this
city are generally understood and con
demned. If permitted to go on unrestrict
ed by reasonable measures, this business
will continue largely to nullify the efforts
of the authorities to make the city's con
gested quarters sanitary and habitable.
But a specific report, carefully prepared,
Is needed before the legislature can deal
with the situation justly. The New York
child labor committee proposes that a
commission to prepare such a report be
created now by legislative enactment, so
that It may present Its remedial bills to
the legislature of 11*12.
Graft in Cuba.
From the Philadelphia Ledger.
If half the stories that are brought
from Cuba are true the moral state of
the government does not differ greatly
from that of oui own country a few
generations ago, when legislative and
executive corruption flourished with a
far more flagrant disregard of decency
and right than anything of which the
present has cognisance. The Cubans
are now in an elemental stage of self
government. It is, perhaps, too much
to expect of them that they should at
tain at the beginning of their experi
ment to a stage of efficiency and hon
esty to which many older self-govern
ing communities with more than a cen
tury of experience and training have not
