Evidently the mania for perpetuating the name of some man who in the brief span of this life has achieved a modicum of success has not died from one the human heart. The mania is most marked Immediately succeeding the death of the man. In the case In view a Chicago minister, the Keverend J. H. Flannigan, is urging the United States Senators to name the new Isthmian canal the "Banna" for the Ohio Senator. Marcus A. Hanna was, in his own particular sphere, a great man of a single day. He elected his friend to the Presidency on two occasions and when conditions were auspicious for the success of his party's candidate. He amsssed a big fortune. He took a prominent part In arbitrating differences be tween capital and labor. He was a United States Senator. He was a leader of men. He was promi nent In furthering the isthmian canaL He died at the climax of his career, and, what Is to be naturally expected, men are carried away by this fact much as an excitable person is carried away by the lurid iratory of a dramatic talker. When Dewey won his victory In Manila Bay schools, children and new towns were named for him, and In St. Louis there was a decided move ment to give his name to King's Highway boulevard. It Is safe to say that all who advocated the local scheme are glad now that It wasn't carried into ef fect; and that without any lessening of respect for Admiral Dewey's great achievement Hanna was a great political leader. None will deny that, but the appreciation does not suggest a movement to hand his name down forever by means of the isthmian canal. In five years he will be a memory; In ten years his name will be known only to students of politics. It Is the natural course of events. He accomplished nothing of high import to the world, as did Washington. He lived, was suc cessful and died. He did nothing that should war rant the perpetuation of his name In the coming history of the Interoceanic canal. --. STATE CIVIC LEAGUES. Ona of the most hopeful sequences of the reform campaign which has been waged in large and small cities for several years Is the appearance In many commonwealths of lntermunlclpal organizations which bear the general name of State Municipal Leagues. With every Important city of a State rep resented at the regular conventions an organization of this kind virtually is a permanent institution for the promotion of civic betterment and ought to have almost Irresistible influence upon public affairs. Without at all detracting from the worthy char acter and beneficial achievements of the national manlcipal associations, whether representative of large or smaller progressive municipalities, It might be said that the State leagues should have more practical value and get better results. The big asso ciations, embracing an extensive territory, can ex ert a strong moral Influence for advancement; but the minor associations, limiting their sphere to one State only, must be the more potent force. Most, if not all, of existing State leagues of mu nicipalities confine their membership to public offi cials. At the conventions papers are read on public improvements and plans for public work in the sev eral cities of the State. Questions of policy are also discussed. Opportunity is afforded for comparison, aad naturally a friendly Jealousy Is fostered among rival towns. The meetings are educative for offi cials and have an encouraging action. Therefore, if the membership Is restricted to public officials alone, the leagues still are powerful agents. Why not enlarge upon the usefulness and In crease the potency of State municipal leagues? Or, better, why not organize State associations compris ing delegates from the civic leagues of the various cities? Why not have popular State leagues, as well as leagues of public officials? Explanations are not required to show the pos sibilities of an institution of this type. It would keep public enthusiasm alive and propagate civic pride. It would accelerate the desire for civic bet terment. It would create rivalry to a good purpose in the towns of a State. It would urge citizens to take mere Interest in public affairs. It would es tablish better standards. And. above all, the union of the cities would enable them to carry out neces sary laws and effect necessary reforms along radical lines. As a national association the Civic Improvement Leagues thus exist. There can be no mistake about their usefulness. They are getting practical results; they are realizing. The State leagues of municipal officials ami the national associations of officials and engineers are reaping benefit1?. The State league as at present organized should be found in every commonwealth. But the circumstances of the time point to the advisability of also establishing more or less popular leagues throughout each Stnte. Many an important cause has been lost for lack of popular education and organization. , A GRAVE ISSUE. No good citizen can read the story of the Dem ocratic primaries in St. Louis last Saturday without recognizing that a new it.sue has been created, of graver character and higher importance than any question of partisan politics. The story of the day Is a talc of outrage and infamy outrage completely thwarting private right ami personal liberty; in famy loadiug the police authorities with disgrace. It Is impossible to speak of the day's occurrences with moderate phrases. They require strong lan guage, and no words can exagecrate the gravity of the issue St. Louis faces, it would have been suffi ciently serious if the police hail simply been unable to repress the riotous proceodincs of the organized gangs of ruffians that Invaded the West End pre cincts. But the seriousness of the situation is great ly increased by the overwhelming mass of evidence showing that the police willingly permitted many outrages to go unrebuked, if tbey did not actually and actively assist the rutlians who committed them. There is no chance to question the fact that the imported rowdies who ran amuck continuously for six long hours in the Twenty-eighth Ward had the sympathy and protection of the police who were stationed at Its two polls. Citizens who were shoved and beaten and slogged In their efforts to faithfully execnte a high civic duty appealed In vain for police protection. Voters who were per sonally known to the officers found their appeals as absolutely futile as those who were unknown, and the word seems to have been passed around that a man with a clean shirt or a decent coat was to be accorded no rights unless he was known to carry a Hawes ballot Mr. Hawes and the leaders who are associated with him, as well as the Board of Police Commis sioners and the Chief of Police, must meet the "full load of responsibility the riotous scenes of Saturday Impose upon them. It will not avail to deny the rioting and outrage. It was witnessed by too many people and Is denounced by too many Democrats with lifelong records of party loyalty. It will not avail to disapprove and condemn. The riot at the Clayton primary put everyone on guard, and the duty of Mr. Hawes, of his friends and of the police authorities, who were thus forewarned, was to take effective precautions to prevent similar occurrences at the St Louis primaries. Sins of omission may be no less grave than those of commission. In the new and dominant Issue thus forced to the front the people of Missouri, the people of the whole State, are no less concerned than are the people of St Louis Itself. With personal liberty at an end and free suffrage lost in St Louis, the State is in the gravest danger. The riot of misrule and disor der here carries 111 delegates Into each State Con vention to misrepresent St Louis and mislead the State Democracy. It remains to be seen whether the Democracy of Missouri is willing to confirm this domination of rowdies and ruffians. : show that the parents of the boys of Utah are prac tically enemies of the Government In dissuading their sous from entering West Point they are doing all within their power, little though it be, to cripple the armed efficiency of the nation. The academy Is simply a training school for the army; a school In which officers are properly trained to command troops in case of war. Did other States In the Union follow the lead of Utah; were other patents equally opposed to a mili tary training for their sous. It Isn't very difficult to realize the condition in which the American Army would be nor its position when confronted by a hostile army. Apparently the Mormons, any way yon take them, in the language of the streets, are "no good." -4. Some of the lifelong Democrats who witnessed the disgraceful scenes Saturday in the West End have in the heat of indignation declared that they would not tote again for the party's nominees. This declaration they will regret. There is no in ducement for them In the Republican party. They must remember tho spectacle presented by the Re publican direct primaries not so long ago. Gangs of the same kind, directed by leaders of the same kind, were in active operation. The course for the citizen of the riht spirit is to stick to the party and force the ruffians out of political business. THE SENSIBLE PUBLIC. The amount traded in on the New Tork Stock Exchange one recent day was 73,300 shares and the Associated Press adds that "professional traders on the floor did practically nothing." That is the greatest compliment paid In years to the Intelligence of the American people. It recallsJ to mind that only a few weeks ago the low record for trading on the New York Cotton Exchange was also reached, another tribute to the American people. Tor years the bulls and bears of New York ha fattened on the lambs, the latter coming under the comprehensive head of "the public," and commend able enterprise has been shown in showing to the public some man who made a few millions of dol lars, and carefully concealing the thousands of peo ple who lost their all among the cheerful gamblers of Wall street Only two weeks ago the widow of the former law partner of EUhu Root killed herself because Ehe had lost in speculation 5300,000 left her by her husband. When the sales on the New York Stock Exchange reach 73300 Instead of from 200,000 to 1.000,000 it is a sure Indication that the public has "caught on" to the manipulations and learned that the winnings they make at first are "feelers" to draw them deeper and deeper. The public Is rapidly learning that there Isn't anything to be gained in Wall street speculation. - THE CURSE OF UTAH. Following close upon the repulsive testimony of the Mormon leaders in Washington and the frank admissions of their disregard for law comes another story from Utah which causes one to doubt the Americanism and the patriotism of the Mormons. Only four boys appeared in Salt Lake recently for examination for admittance to the military academy at West Point and only one had an average high enough to send him to Fort Logan for his final examination. State Superintendent of Public In struction Nelson of Utah, in commenting upon this said there was a decided aversion among the people of Utah to military duty and that the parents did all that lay within their power to dissuade the boys from trying for West Point These brief facts, are worthy of study. They To those who may contemplate suicide: Wait until after May 1. Such advice Is suggested by the treatment of five cases in one night at the City Hos pital. There will bo fine -fireworks displays at the World's Fair this summer; better than any which ma j be observed elsewhere. -- The War Department has. with commendnble foresight, appointed a Major as chief sanitary officer at the World's Fair. In this there Is an implication that it will be good for everybody's health to comply with the regulations. . The Republic's correspondent who has been chosen to go with the first column of Japanese sol diers, will undoubtedly send hack the first column of news. The Republic is a daily necessity in every home. - Buffalo Bill's suit for divorce knocks the glamour out of dime-novel romance. Ideals concerning the brave hero and the heroine will have to be altemi and the sky line moved farther toward the setting sun. Hypnosis is tho cause assigned by a St. Louis woman for her marriage to a comparative stranger. It looks like a nice, easy excuse for many alliances, even some of long standing. -- The large size of the new family hotels put up In St Louis may suggest to strangers that our resi dences are too small. We should give the institu tions another general title. To have the reputation of being a millionaire is almost as good as being one. Robert L. Cutting of New York was in debt 5170,000 when ho died. ULMAN-GALLATIN WEDDING WILL BE A QUIET AFFAIR. RECENT COMMENT. Labor tn the Sooth. Nashville American. There Is no gainsaying the fact that in tho South labor Is free and Independent and that It Is to this fact more than any other that Southern industries are In a flourishing condition. In the North and Bast the walk ing delegate and his followers have so annoyed employers that many of them have almost lost hope of ever main taining peaceful relations with their employes. That this Is true Is shown In the expressed determination of several Eastern cotton-mill men to transfer their In terests to the South rather than longer submit to the arbitrary methods of the labor organizations. They feel that down here they will not be at tho mercy of agi tators who live by Inciting troubles between employe and employer. They have found, by observation and In quiry, that much of the success of the Southern mill men Is directly attributable to the freedom of their em ploves from unionism, and they are shrewd enough to take advantage of this fact. No fair-minded employer wants to seo labor deprived of Its Just rewards, for con tented and well-paid employes bring profit to them teHes.and to their employer, but the methods pursued by the unions In many Northern and Eastern industrial centers breed dissatisfaction among employers and bring want and penury to labor. Lonff-Tcrm Senators. Springfield Republican. Long terms of service In the United States Senate are more peculiar to present time, apparently, than In earlier days, though a popular Impression prevails to the contrary. Benton's term of thirty years, which was noteworthy In its day, has since been frequently equaled or surpassed, as In the cases of John Sherman and Jus tin Morrill. Now we have two Senators from a single State celebrating thi completion of twenty-three years of continuous service within a few days of each other Eugene Hale and William P. Frye of Maine who. if they live, will probably be able to extend their senatorial careers beyond thirty years, for the people of Maine show no disposition to retire them, in which they are wise. Mr. Hear of Massachusetts has been there twenty seven years, and so have Stewart of Nevada and Mor gan of .Alabama. Teller of Colorado has twenty four years of senatorial experience and Piatt of Con necticut twenty-five. The number of present members who have been there twenty years or over Is much larger and forms a very considerable fraction of the whole body It Is far harder to get Into the Senate now than In times before the Civil War. and It seems to be correspondingly easier for those who are In to keep their places. Roosevelt u Seen by R1I. Collier's Weekly. Some men do good by seeing things In their exact proportions. Rlls Is no such realist He sees everything as he would have It Mr. Lincoln Steffens is an example of the kind of man who seeks reform by ruthless and precise exposure. He suggested to Mr. Rlis that In his biography of Mr. Roosevelt he should tell the whole truth. "Paint the real Roosevelt." he said. "It is the only way you can help him. People won't believe you if you give them fairy tales, and the President Is such a good man he will gain by being truthrully portrayed." Rlls did not understand where there was any danger of falsification. "Oh. let his faults be part of the story," said the critic. "But he has no faults." replied the en thusiast. Abraham Lincoln once refused to read a life of Burke on the ground that all biographies were the same universal eulogies, only the names and dates being changed. Medicine Beats Diplomacy. Outlook. Prince Mln Tons Ik. a. near relative of the-Klng. was terribly wounded and brought to death's door. Though General Foote and all the Europeans fled as soon as possible to Chemulpo, the port of Seoul. Doctor Allen did not. As Doctor Allen anticipated, be was summoned to attend the Prince, and withstood thirteen Korean so called physicians who wished to pour their black wax Into the gaping wounds. They looked on in wonderment while Doctor Allen sewed up the wounds and tied the arteries. A Chinese General was among the bystanders, and had the wit to cruras Doctor Allen's services for twenty of his wounded soldiers who had been concerned In tho riot. The surgical operations were In the main successful. A Deep Antarctlo Sea. Scientific American. Tho State Department has received from John Bar rett United States Minister to the Argentine Republic. a communication to the effect that the Scotia scientific expedition, sent to the Antarctic from Scotland to make meteorological and oceanographlcal observations, cruised about 6.000 miles to the south and east of the South Orkney Islands, between longtitude IS degrees west and C degrees west and as far south as TO degrees 3 min utes, and in this region located a deep sea of an almost uniform depth of iK fathoms. The deepest sounding was 2,7 fathoms, or 1C.C4 feet ' AIRS J U'K GALLATIN" Who la to bo married to Joseph S Ulnian The weddmr Is to be a quiet affair and will tnke place at St George's New York .Mrs. Gallatin "e ured a dlvorro Janu ary IS from her husband, who Is a grandson of the founder of the Gallatin National Bank. "THE ISLE OF SPICE" PLEASED A LARGE CROWD. When an audience demands repetitions of a song, vou are reasonablv -sure that that song has "caught on " "Peggy Bra dy" was demanded eight times last night In the Century Theater It is reasonably safe to assume, therefore, that it made the one big hit of the songs in "The Isle of Spice." It's a catchy thine, rather sug gestive of "Mollle Shannon." and it was well sung by Miss Leslie Leigh and a cho rus of considerable strength. "Peggy Brady ' did not .ome along unt.l the second act, and, since thero was com paratively little of concern in the first act, some folks were Inclined to leave when the curtain went down. These persons made a mistake, for the second and third acta ar the best of the three, the hrst being what one may call a preface to the real music of the extravaganza. The book Is of our old friend the penni less King and the two adventurers and Is rather cleverly worked out. The whole extravaganza Is magnificently staged. There are several Ideas' worked out and tho choruses have been thor oughly drilled, and they put real life into the evening's entertainment Harrv Kelj as the King was funny, but a cold sersl ously Impaired his voice Miss Helen Roy ton, who has the leading part is bright and sparkling, and was porticuUrlv clever In her duet in tho second act with Wil liam M. Armstrong, who at Haro'd Katchall. the American naval olllcer. sang well he always does. The audience was typical of Sunday night; it caire to be amused and it was It laughed over the gambling propensi ties of the King, and the men applauded several cleverly turned gambling phrases The staging, too. was appreciated and in tho last act "The Goo-Goo Man." suns by Toby Lyons, was well wing and he was ably assisted by ten rlever girls. Mr Cave, the amiable young Century treasurer. Is to be benefited by to-night's performance. Arthur Dunn and the girls a stage full of them drove 'The Runaways" through two long acts to a merry close at the Grand last night. Little Dunn was never funnier, and the girls were fair to "tre. every one of them All could sing, too, and they took advantage of every oppor tunity to let the fact be known. There was a song after every good Joke The result was a fast performance, -with some thing doing every minute. There has been some theatrical curios ity as to how- "The Runavvajs" would i;o without Fay Templcton. who, aided by Mr. Dunn, carried the piece successward in the East. When she left the cast It remained for Arthur Dunn to get tno laughs. Tho way he goes about the tak of being funny enough for two, of making an audience think tne farce was concoct ed for htm alone, must be seen to be ap preciated. . , He played Blutch, a "horrible example In the employ of a fake doctor who sold patent medicines. The doctor and Blutch proceeded to "do" Saratoga, and later a tropical Isle which Millionaire Hardtack visited for his health. As Blutch. Dunn suggested a stranded Jockey in his make-up a shrewd, quick witted chap never at a loss as to when or how to pick a pocket or turn a joke He was on the stage most of the time and always to the fore.
