President Hoosevolt.'.s action in ordeiing Attorney (eueral Knot to bring suit again-t the Norlliei n Securities Company for the purpo-e of preventing a threatened consolidation of the railway system of the Northwest may properly be oinmeiule d. The next development in the situation now ctcated 1 should be an honest mid vigorous pioseetltiou of llii- suit. There uitw be no fla-h in the pan. The Pn-sl- j dent's Influence, utanltilly ectled, will compel his!

The people ot the aiious Slates Whose welfate i menaced by the proposed railroad monopoly are earnestly praying that the President will not fail them The legal machinery uf ihe States in fjueslion is nor considered cimal to the task of suc cessfully contending against interstate commoiee re strictions. The Kcderal Government, it is felt, must conduct this conflict in the people's behalf. There fore, the new aspect put upon the case by President Rcosevelt s order to Attorney General Ktio is emi neutly satisfactory. The President will make a tremendous gain in the affection and conlideuce of the Ameiican people if. through his timely assistance, the threatened com bination of tin? Northwestern railway sj.stems ;s pre vented, lie will lose proportionately in the event of failure due to half-heaited prosecution or a mal'e-l.e-lieve grand-stand play which siuill leae the combine triumphant in the end.

VIGOltorS l'ltOSECCTION IN OISDKK. Threats made by Municipal Aseinb!ymen under ie- f. dlctment for bribery, to the effect that it they are punished they will see to it that other Sluulcipal As wmhlymcn are putjlshi'd with them, should greatly en- h ourage the local oflicers of the law to the tullesi per formance of duly. No Influence for the shielding of the guilt- iu the bribery cases can be allowed to prevail for a miscar riage of justice. Prompt trial of Indicted persons tihould be had. Kvery shred of convicting evidence Khould be submitted iu open couit. If the proof of crime has been secured, warranting indictment and f nrro.st. this proof must be offered as a basis for the punishment of the criminals. Ipecially should the administrator of justice take '.1tIsfaetiou in the fact now being developed that panic is beginning to possess the souls of certain In- - dieted SUtnicipal Assemblymen and that these persons J, are threatening to "pencil" on their rellow-As-erubly-i. men in order that they shall not stand alone iu the pillory. . This should stimulate the pio-eculing forces to the Mipretuest' exertion. The Grand Jury investigation of the blibery cases was begun with a view to tne pun ishment of the guilty in those cases (ind the suppres sion of municipal corruption. The desired linish should be made sure. The Grand Jury has performed Us duty In return ing Indictments iu every case where the evidence justified indictment. The prosecuting otllcers should now perforin their duty in the courts. The conviction of even one bribe-giver or bribe-laker seems to con tain a bright promise of the securing of evidence war ranting the Indictment, arrest, frial and conviction of ofhers. This Is a consummation devoutly to be wished. A vigorous and Inflexible piosceution is now distinctly in order. I'ltKCACTIONS I'OK HHXKY'S SAFKTV. Upon the shoulders of Chief of l'olice Kiely and Chief of Detectives Desmond will rest a serious le sponsibility on the occasion of the visit to St. Louis of Prince Henry of Prussia, the brother of the Kmpeior of Germany. There is. undeniably, less of the anarchist element in St. Louis than in any other American city of equal size. Ilut this fact does not by any meaus justify a relaxed vigilance ou the part of the police authorities. Chiefs Kiely and Desmond undoubtedly realize the gravity of the task with which they will soon be con fronted. They"viII be the official guaidhius of the Prince during his brief stay In their city. St. Louis's toyal guest and the distinguished party constituting his retinue must of necessity depend upon the zealous watchfulness of Kiely and Desmond for their safety while here. A keen and unrelaxing vigilante must be maintained. Extraordinary exertion to this (iid is im perative. not that of what may best be done iu tin- interest of the Filipinos, but rather what should be done for American welfate. t This lias been tin- ptesiiiou of The licpuhlic situe the Philippine problem was litst confronted. If we dispose of that problem on a basis antagonistic to established American principles and in violation of the American Constitution, we. and not the people of the Philippines, will suffer most giievotislv. Thete is little occasion for American :ippiohensIon concerning the S.ooo.oou .Malays of the Philippine Archipelago. There is the graet occasion for Ametie.iu appte- heusiou of e!l to this Government and people it we icpudiaio anil abandon the Ameiican creed iu deal ing with those .Malays. IOep this fact elearlv In mind and unf.iiliugly ion sidcr the Philippine piestiou ftoni the standpoint, of American interests. V arc in the greatest danger in the event of wiongdoing lowaid the l'ilipiuos. We must deal faitly with that people, not from solicitude for tliem. but for the light's sake and for the preser vation of Ameiican principle. - Some of the gentlemen who wisli to preserv" the oM Exposition building as a permanent private enter pt.Ise object to the bilhnow before the Slnnh ipal As sembly; their criticism being th.yf the present discus sion of the bill prejudices their interests at the ap proaching sale. Their interests cannot possibly be prejudiced. Outside capital would not in any case compete, since most lawyers know that the title by whicli the building occupies the site is worthless. Oil the other hand, if these gentlemen are soliciting sub scriptions with which to bid for and retain the prop erty, they should tell their friends that a successful bid would buy an instant lawsuit. The bill before the Municipal Assembly cannot, pending the sale, hurt anybody. The truth exists without depending on that measure. .. The wisdom of the 'World's I'alr Company In ar ranging an aitship contest as a feature of the Ex position in 1003 is being shown every day. Inter est in the contest has spread over the entire world. In every country inventors are at work on plans and machines. As au advertisement of the Fair the con test has been most valuable. As a prospective attrac tion, the aerial contest will draw hundreds of thou sands to St. Louis during the life of the Exposition. 4 rsgramm muMiii muitm..i.'m!.ii..Li.iii..,,i i miiiim ! i i r-n-- ' -" 1"L'M'll''M,!BHaalMI1''11 ' ' - ' "'-ft-' .""'"i'fSjf.

Covintor Cullom and Governor Yates may be quoted COMPARATIVE ELECTION ItETUItNS. If Republicans are really looking for reasons to account for Sir. Horton's defeat in the Twelftn Con gressional District at the last election, let them ex amine the tables published in yesterday's Republic io gardiug the steady decline in Congressman Hartholdfs majorities iu the Tenth District. For the sake of the argument let talk of frauds and Republican treachery be excluded. There never has leen a time when the South Side Congressman has said that he suffeied the loss of a single vote under the operation of the so-called Neshit law. He litis al ways confined 1 is invectives to the vote In the Twelfth Distilct. In ISIHi, out of a total vote of ::4.878. Sir. Bartlioldt received a majority of 10,14s. Two years later, though an off year, there was a decrease of only 1,101 in the total vole, but a decrease of i),VSi In his majotity. which was "only ;.'--'".. In liXiO, with au increase ol 0,0.'!l iu the total vote cast. liurlholdt'n majority was only 4,r.9.", or ll.Tht less than in 1S!M!. At this rate, the old Tenth District, if unchanged iu boundaries would probably be can led by a Demo crat this fall, or at flltthest two yeais hence. Deny it as they may. Republican politicians hae been un able to hold their own in a district which has lieen conceded to them since it was organized. The Twelfth District has always been lighting ground. Republican majorities when that patty has carried the district have always been small. The late Slajor l'earce, popular among Republicans-as he was, was forced to see his majorities cut down. Them was about the same percentage of deeiease in the Re publican majority in 1SUS and IWi'l in the Twelfth as there was In the Tenth. Iu ISDtl. Congressman I'eatce teceived a majoiity of::,S12ina total vote of :tf,124. - In 1N)S. with a total vote of LIMIS. or lO.a'iO less than In INMi. .Major Pcarce's majority was cut to l.olL'. Hete is a de crease exa( tly similar to Rartholdt's. So why should there In- any surpiie that the Twelfth did two years ago exactly what the Tenth did at the same time? The conversion from Republican ism to Democracy was working iu both districts. The only diffeionco is that the danger point was nearer in the Twelfth than iu the Tenth. Rarlholdt. with the same small margin that Slajor lVarte possessed. would not have been returned Congress in IMIS. If then had been the .same telative decrease in the Republican vote in the Twelfth In 1!KH as com pared with IMiS that there was in IStiS as compared with l.V.Kt. the Democratic majority would have been about l.i WO. That the decrease was even greater may be accounted for by the opposition to Ziegenheinisin which gave many hundreds of Republican votes to Demeemtle candidates nil over the city. Why is tlieie anything remarkable in Hot-ton's de feat? A study of the returns for the past few years iu the city districts would not warrant a conclusion that lloitou could have been fairly elected. Harlholdt should know wlujt the Irouble was lie was getting dangerously near the losing point himself. As for the Twelfth District, the defeat of Dot Ion was natural. There is no need to look up fraud in evpl.iining his failtue to be elected. Those Congressmen -who will persist' lu criticising the protest of Representative Wheeler of Kentucky against the courteous treatment of Prince Henry of Prussia are wasting ammunition. Indeed, it is doubt ful now whether Sir. Wheeler has not performed a valuable public service iu making an ass of himself. The promptness of the American repudiation of Lis utterances will show the world that American men have a proper conception of their duty us gentlemen. -. Wirnest.es who leave the city while the Grand Jury is in session cannot be said to leave the best impression behind. Circuit Attorney Folk has been so diligent in unearthing the corruption of the past few years that both respectable and ordinary rascals are shaking in their shoes. The Circuit Attorney will make St. Louis such au unhealthy place for boodlers that those who have departed will never care to le tiun. j, RECENT COMMENT.
