The (scandalous mismanagement of
the state university has caused the gov
ernor to lake dra#tic action. He has
summarily removed President Fay and
Regents Davis and Hayden. These are
the members who have been most
active in making the university the
vehicle of their personal ends. They
have saddled on the institution some
one or another of their relatives or
favorites, and one of thf m has had so
little regard for decency and good taste
that he has shoved himself into a po
sition of emolument contrary to the
spirit of the law and a sound public
sentiment. These three regents formed
a petty cabal in the board, and the dis
graceful and humiliating plight Into
which the university was recently
thrown was In very large part due to
the ignoble and self-Beeking policy they
inaugurated.
Gov. Rogers is entitled to unqualified
commendation for the high stand he
ha* taken in the university matter.
The character of the governor's ap
pointees gives assurance that the uni
versity will be lifted from the domain
of cheap politics and demoralizing In
trigue. and take its proper place at
the head of the schools of the state.

Toward the close of the recent finan
cial unp'easantness. and when the first
glimmer of dawn tinged the mountain
tops of our hopes, we gave each ether
very safe advice and called witnesses
to our good resolutions. Only give us
one more chance: If we bad bat one
year like that after the fire; If the op
portunity < ver ci mcs again—formed
our daily prayers. Wa would never be
groedy again; we won id always be sure
to sell when the market was high and
not hold on till prices begun to ebb; we
would profit by our dearly bought "x
--p< i ierce, and when we once moro had
an income we would practice economy.
Nt>w the time has come when the
mirror Is to be held up to us; the draft
v.e tnsde upon the future la being pre
sented to us f:jr payment; tomorrow
the doors of prosperity will be opened
to us. Are we ready?
Are w® prepared to resist tempta
tion? Are we braced tip to continue m
our present modest way of living, and
let the profits over our daily necessi
ties erect a bank aceoun" monument to
our fiminers? Have the fences been
carefully planked up on each side of
the path we hare laid down for our
selves. so that there be no loopholes
through which our purpose may es
cape; r.o crevices through which our
courage can oo:e; no subterfuge by
which we cau escape the monitions of
our conscience?
l'erhaps before the portala are
thrown open It would be well to alt
down meditatively upon the threshold
of the f-'tur® ar 1 ewie to an under
standing with ourselves. We had bet
ter reduce our self-satisfied general
ities to figures and facts; an 1 first of
all we r;u >t define clearly w hat w•>
m-vvnt v hen we swore to be economical,
and what we must do to keep faith.

Lav< a g:rL Oae cuaot economise to '

economy consists in managing things
and overlooking everything: and we
defy anybody to do that who is ccm-
P*lfed to be constantly worried with
the drudgery of the household.
And now. what about the club? For
oar part we have always feft that it
was good business policy to go to the
club frequently and meet people and
get out of the rut and see opportunities
which dc not come to a man who keeps
b;s no?e down to his desk all the time
or get? behind the coun
■fr. Ev<»n in our most frugal moments
we never included cigars among the
economies to be continued when nec
essity no longer kept us to a pipe—
that is one of the few pleasures a man
has. an i after all we have only one life
to live.
Of coarse the boys must go to col
lege and the girls must go into society.
That is a duty we owe our children; it
Is not prudent to deprive them of ad
vantages, whatever we may do our
selves in keeping strictly to a policy of
j-eif-sacrifif ing economy. But you and
the Wife must do something yourselves
in the way of entertaining; you cannot
expect others to bear all the burdens
of hospitality. Certainly; no self-re
specting parents would want their chil
dren to feel that they were unable to
reciprocate social attentions.
But we must economize; now is the
time to begin. How shall it be begun
and how shall the limits be set? There
is one thing about economy, it must be
remembered: it is entirely relative.
What would be a very necessary econ
omy on our neighbors' part may not
be necessary on ours; our social status
and our business associations compel
us to do many things and incur some
expenses which are really not unecon
omical because they form a part of the
means to further our advancement.
It is false economy to be penurious
when a little latitude may enable us
to extend the sphere of our operations.
Penny wise and pound foolish, is a
very good adage.
All we have to do is to decide upon
plans and keep to them so that we
shall profit by this opportunity. The
difficulty is to know beforehand just
what circumstances will require of us.
We cannot limit our expenses strictly
until we know what our income is to
be; there is plenty of time before us
and we can perhaps decide better after
we have ascertained where the limit of
economy must be set.
Yes, indeed, we must economize—
some time in the future.
TARIFF AS A HKVKME 11A18F.R.
Two very excellent authorities have
come to loggerheads on the subject of
the Dingley tariff; and it shows how
very easy it is for two perfectly honest
minds to differ very seriously not only
in opinion, but upon a matter of fact
The New York Commercial Advertiser
declares that the intention of the
authors of the tariff was not to make a
revenue bill, except insofar as it might
incidentally prove to be one; that they
intended it to be a measure for the pro
tection of American capital and labor;
that revenue quite a secondary
consideration with them, the first ar.d
virtually their only object being pro
tection. The Philadelphia Ledger de
nies this, and says that the purpose was
to create a revenue, and the schedule
was so arranged that it should do so.
he latter is the correct view, it
secir:s to us; and it was frequently ar
gued during the campaign that it was
the Wilson bill which was at the root
of all the evil attributed to the de
monetisation of silver. It was declared
most positively by Republican news
papers that the issue of bonds to make
up the amount considered necessary
to maintain the gold reserve was real
ly caused by the want of revenue. It
was promised that so soon as a pro
tective tar.ff was in force ihe revenue
of the government would be increased,
and the outflow of gold would Le
stopped.
This must be the more correct view,
because if the object were chiefly to
afford protection the schedule would
have been so arranged as to make the
importation of foreign goods absolutely
prohibitive. This Is notoriously not
the case; th* tariff was very carefully
adjusted so as to let in foreign go«wis
of certain qualities In order to produce
;i revenue, and to prevent extortionate
pr - »>. ins put upon got ds by Ameri
can manufacturers.
It docs not prove the contrary be
cause so f:ir the bill has not produced
the revenue that was expected. So
'pen and enormous w*re the importa
i m« n. i le vhile the bill *as being dis
cus*. that a provision was dellberate
ly and purposely put into the bill, with
♦he object < f making it apply to im
l >r;ati us made subsequent to April 1
of this year. It w;»s probably wiser,
v cause of the bad precedent, and of
t' e dii-t >an eto business it would
have made, to abandon it when the
-di r. >! ragged along for so manv
months, but it was manifest that im
-1 w re laying in immense sup
plies in order to benefit by the lover
d ;iie*j of th* Wileon law. Of course
t e eff-et is to make importations small
r.nw. that w.t3 what they were made
for then.
As a measire of protection, however
ths bill has been a notable success.
Th«re Is scarcely a line of industrv
which has not felt th* b-nefit of the
r .neley tariff, and tens of thousaads at
factory hands can testify that it has
been an improvement in their condi'
t. -n. Of the two. |t would be better to

they could not afford to buy a glass o*
beer.
The best authority on the subject,
however, of the purpose of the bill 13
Mr. Pingley himself, who stated to the
house on one occasion that "the de
ficiency in the revenue has nearly all
arisen from the falling off of revenue
from duties on imports." And in the
course of the same speech said that the
problem involved in the bill was to
"provide adequate revenue from duties
on imports to carry on the govern
ment." Mr. Dingley is a protectionist,
and his main effort was to revive in
dustry in the United States, but he had
to yield it to the opinion that the coun
try would never tolerate a return to the
duty imposed by the McKinley bill. If
revenue only were necessary it would
not have mattered so much within a
fraction what the duty should be on
goods not manufactured of the sama
grade in this country.
A better authority on the subject is
Senator Aldrich, who had charge of the
bill in the senate. He not only
worked to make it a revenue-produc
ing bill, but warned the Republican
party that the adoption of a tariff bill
which should fail in that purpose,
which should create an additional de
ficiency in the immediate future, and
make necessary a further issue of bonds
to meet current expenses, would cer
tainly be fatal to the hopes of future
success of any political party responsi
ble for such legislation. And Senator
Aldrich was right.
The city of Taeoma has never learned
the value of harmony and singleness of
purpose in its business community.
Whenever it had a chance to promote the
funeral good, it could be depended upon
to throw it away. Selfish personal aims
and unnecessary quarrels among them
selves are chiefly responsible. Tha
trouble in the Chamber of Commerce is
another illustration of Tacoma's remark
able facility for doing itself damage at
every favorable opportunity. The Post-
Intelligencer does not know and it does
not care, which faction is most to blame.
But it does know that, when the minority
in any public body refuses to sub
mit to the will of the majority, the use
fulness and efficiency of the organization
are destroyed. Now that Secretary Col-
Iyer is to be retained, quit fighting till the
next election. Then let the minority try
its best again to dismiss him. But mean
while do every possible thing for tha
Chamber of Commerce and Taeoma.
That's the way we do in Seattle, and it
counts.
The trouble with some army officers
is that they do not understand what the
word "discipline" means. They think it
is the application of every available
method to bring the private soldier into
a proper state of subjection to his su
periors. Capt. of Fort Sheri
dan, near Chicago, is likely to be used by
the war department to show that the man
in the ranks has some rights which even
the man with shoulder straps must re
spect. If the stories the Chicago papers
tell are true, Lovering caused a rebel
lious private to be tied by the feet and
dragged, bruised and bleeding, for a dis
tance of 600 yards through the post by
members of the guard, the enraged cap
tain following and prodding the poor fel
low with his sword. Secretary of War
Aigcr has very properly ordered an in
vestigation.
If Seattle !s permitted to make an ex
hibit. of itself in miniature at the Paris
exposition, it will show the Frenchmen
and the world at large what a real live,
husilir 5 American Western town Is like.
It is to be rrgnetted that many Eastern
newspapers. In announcing the Seattle
project, havo stated that this city pro
poses to enter into competition with an
other "Western" city. That is not the
idea. It is the debign that Seattle «laail
be the Western city, and that another shall
be chosen to represent the East. Tims,
the iwa distinct types could be shown.
The New York Shipping and Commer
cial LUt is the oldest and perhaps the
most conservative commercial paper in
the J/nlied States. It is In its one hundred
and second vohrme. When such a periodi
cal comments on Seattle, as it does in an
article reprinted In another column, say
i: that no city of the woild of equal age
with Seattle can make so extraordinary
a present showing, and that none on
the globe double its size and age can
boast so many elements of future great
ness. its words are worthy of being
printed in Klondike gold.
The retirement of Gorman, of Maryland,
from the United States senate will be dis
tinctly to that body's advantage. The
Maryland campaign will almost certainly
end In Democratic defeat, and Gorman
v ill not be re-elected. It is not possible,
of course, to foretell what will be th® re
sult of bis offer to withdraw from the
active management of the campaign and
to drop his candidacy for senator If it
will Insure Democratic success; but It is
certain that the bluff rill cot result in
strengthening his canvass.

In the matter of representation in the

October 5 says that the city council of that
enterprising metropolis of the Puget sound
country has passed a resolution requesting
MaJ. Mcses P. Handy, United States spe
cial commissioner to the Paris exposition
of IW, to apply for lO.W square feet of
space for a complete ethnographical ex
hibition of Seattle as a representative
Western city. The resolution asks Mr.
Handy to induce some Eastern city of the
same size to make an exhibition in com
petition with Seattle, showing its mineral
and agricultural resources. A committee
was appointed, consisting of the mayor,
president of the Chamber of Commerce
and two citizens, to prepare a project to
carry the novel scheme into effect.
It Is very' certain that mo city In the
world of equal age with Seattle can make
so extraordinary a showing. A little more
than a quarter of a century ago there
was no such place en the map. Today
there is probably not a city on the globe
of double its size and age that can boast
so many elements of future growth and
greatrpss as a center of activity along the
lines of commerce, agriculture, timber and
lumber supply, mines and minerals. Such
