The aggregate circulation ot The Times

Elsewhere will be found a call for a mass
meeting which should command the atten
tion of all who sympathize with struggling
Cuba. The recognition of the Cuban cause
by Congress Is all but essential to Its
welfare, and it withheld, now that the
prospects for Cuba"n Independence seem so
bright, the omission would almost be
criminal. Cuba burdened by a war debt
of nearly $400,000,000 and enslaved by
Spanish domination can never be nn.rier
ods or even moderately successful, but
Cuba free, with no debt and an Independent
form of government, would soon become
rich from the development of her splendid
Thoc who oppose the recognition of Cuba
claim that the insurrectionists are negroes
and lhat Cubans generally arc incapable
of self-government. There never was a
more crnrl assumption. In 18S0 the popu
lation or Ci.ba was 1,521, G84, of whom
7C4.1G0 were whites, Spaniards and Span
ish Creoles, 34 1,400 free people of color,
227,002 slaves, and 58,400 Chinese, which
shows that at least half the population arc
white, most of whom demand Cuban inde
pendence for business reasons, which
there Is no necessity for rehearsing. When
given opportunity the Cubans have shown
themselves progressive and industrious, and
their successful conduct ot a war against
the combined elTorts ot Spain demonstrates
their ability to takccareoflhcmsvlvcsunder
Anything like favorable circumstances.
Since Febrnary last the Cubans have
taken possession of more than two-thirds
of their country. From a band of insurrec
tionists their band has grown to more than
30,000 soldiers, of whom only about halt
are properly armed. With power to pur
chase arms -and supplies they would soon
achieve Independence, and the recognition
of them as belligerents by Congress would
give them lhat power. The question to be
discussed at the mass meeting, noon to be
called. Is whether or not as Americans we
bave the right to withhold thai recognition.

Following is a sjiecimen of the way Wash
ington is being traduced as a result ot the
efforts of certain Individuals to create a
typhoid scare:
Typhoid fever is epidemic In Washington,
COO cases Ix-ing under treatment. Such a
state of -affairs argues bad sanitary rule la
the Capital City. The time will come when
a city wilh two universities, and more iu
prospect, will be ashamed to admit to the
world that It does not know how to keep
diseases ot snch nature at a distance.
Philadelphia Kecord.
It Is hardly necessary to state that the
object In causing this sensational Informa
tion to be telegraphed abroad Is to Intlncnce
Oontress to antborize an extensive bond
Issue to Improve our street and sewer sys
tems. And those interested In circulating
the news ot the epidemic expect to be
benefited through the expenditure ot a
large prbportion of the amount received
tor the bonds in the improvement of Ihelr
suburban property.
The Times publishes tills morning a
positive deniapot the epidemic report by
a largo number of our most reputable phy
sicians. Their practice extends to nil
parts of the city, and includes every ele
ment of our population, and If a typhoid
cpidcmlo existed, or If there were any
danger of one, they woald be among the
first to know ami report It. Their state
ments are absolutely correct and, as Infor
mation concerning the extent of typhoid in
Washington, they caa be relied upon. Tliey,
also furnish conclusive evidence that there
are people who would sacrifice Ihe good
name ot their city for personal gain, and
whose attempt to do so In this instance
lias nearly proved successful.
Generally speaking, the sanitary condi
tion of Washington Is as good as. If not
better than, most other large and growing
cities. A iiart of -its drainage facilities
need increasing, and certain of its new
districts rcqjlrc an extension ot sewer
and street improvements. There should
also be better arrangements to dispose ct
sewage, allot whhh will meet the approval
ot the public when presented ! Congrwi
in the right kind of way. But any biaukct
measure that provides for a large lwnd
issue that does not specify the nature and
localities ot the Improvements will be
condemned and defeated If possible, es
pecially it brought into Congress on the
strength ot a typhoid epidemic lhat has
no existence.,
The .Hatchers and backers' Magazine is
mistaken in Its assertion tiiat F resilient
Cleveland and Ids cabinet have referred the
investigation of the complaint against the
beer trust to the Attorney Gencralof Illinois,
and that It Is anadmlssion that the national
antitrust law is worthless. Attorney
General Harmon forwarded the evidence
Morton, to United States District Attorney
Illack.of Illinois, with instructions tolnvcsli
gute, and so far no information has been
made puMIc as to the progress made.
The validity ofthcanti-trustlnwhasnever
yet been tested in the courts, and Fresldent
Cleveland and his Cabinet have no authority
to decide against It. The law was framed
by the best legal minds in the Senate and
by tliem pronounced an effective measure
to destroy trusts, and if tho administration
hesitates to enforce it on the ground ot
Illegality It is a direct reflection on the
Judgment of the Senators who are its
Asamalterof fact thepublicbelievcs that
President Cleveland docs not want to
prosecule the trusts. The "communism of
pelf" Is much mors aggrcsslveand burden
some than it was when the administration
began its labors, and although nearly three
jears have elapsed since the above empty
phrase was made public, not a trust has
been interfered witli or an effort made
to explain why the antl trust law was
not enforced.
It is not right to condemn this law until
It is tried and found wanting.
The use of progressive newspapers by
Tror. Lodge, ot the Columbian University,
as text books is un innovation that other
educational institutions could adopt to ad
vantage. College education as a rule Is ton
much a thing of the past. The books used
by students represent the brains of other
days, and the Ideas and thoughts absorbed
from tbem arc but reproductions f mental
pictures that are obsolete. It Is true that
underlying factsandprmciplesncverchange,
but progress, enlightenment and the rest
less mind energy of the present are con
stantly changing to meet new conditions,
and if the simile be permitted, time Is but
a kaleidoscope. In which facts and prin
ciples alter their Shape to satisfy the re
quirements of a changeful public. Tor
that reason college text books should be so
modernized as to fill the minds of students
with progressive Ideas.
Hut it Is a question if all newspapers will
prove proper educational text books.
.Most newspapers arc conducted as money
making enterprises. They boast of inde
pendence and claim to be moldcrs of public
opinion for general good, but back of their
apparently unselfish statements Is a de
sire to accumulate wcnltt5. Their editorial
policy Is that which brings the greatest
revenue, and their news columns crowd
ed wUi such information as will add the
largest numbcrof readers to tbeirclrculation
lists. Tbcy are reformers only when pub
lic sentiment points the way, and are seldom
progressive, except In the direction of the
almighty dollar. Of these facts, Washington
newspaper readers have been intelligent
A communication from Trot. Lodee pub
lished In another column shows that he
realizes the need of fearless, independent
newspapers to assist in the wort of mold
ing the minds of students. Almost uncon
sciously scholars absorb the Individuality
and mental Images of the context- which
they study. For that reaon newspaper
text books should be carcrully selected.
Those that are broad and unprejudiced will
add practical Ideas to the fund of knowl
edge and prepare students to meet modern
conditions, but these newspapers must be
those which voice the sentiment of the
public rather than the opinions of certain
interests. Otherwise it would be as well
to continue the use of the old style text

Editor Times: I sec In this afternoon's
issue of The Times a kind notice of a small
innovation which I have introduced into
the ilcp lrtmcnl of political philosophy over
which I have the honor to preside.
" 1 have long been convinced of the great
importance of the newsjiaperas a ractor
in education. Of course, it is unnecessary
to state that the newspaper is used only
to supplement the regular text-book work
to seek in tiie world about them for ap
plications and illustrationsof what they are
learning In the classroom. In the instruc
tion ot the class the most rigidly scientific
methods are employed..
The student starts with facts. These
are studied inductively, historically, com
paratively and Willi a recognition of the
omnipresent reign or law. Present devel
opments in the civilized world aro con
stantly referred to. History, jou know.
Is philosophy -teaching by example, and
the liappcnings of the hour are present
history. It is needless to say that in the
use of newspapers and In all reference
to c urrent events the professor Is extremely
careful to be entirely nonpartisan.
It seems to me that the uewspapcr.thus
used for the purpose of Incidental instruc
tion, and knit within proper limit always,
may be made a force lor good In university
Wc often hear it urged as an objection
to rolk-guilc education that the stiidatits
of colleges are compelled to pass four
years ot their lives In well nigh absolute
seiluslon from the great world outside.
They arc kept. It Is said, so busily cm
ployed In mining the golden treasure which
lies deep down In the ages of the past
that the complex civilization of whose
tissue thev form a part re-civcs but little
study. Many a student who can tell the
name and relate the exploits ot a score
of mythological heroes is utterly Ignorant
of tho lives of the men who are to day
making and molding history.
J)oubtles there is some truth in this
complaint. The college is in some ways
separated from the life ot the people by a
great gap. College men, on the whole,
are not In sufficiently close touch with
the present. There Is some danger. It may
be. that the republic of scholars may be
invaded by the spirit of selfish exclusive
ness. which befits only an oligarchy. On
the other hand, there is danger that the
people may come to distrust the college
man as unpractical, unpatriotic, and un
productive Some means must lie found to send the
warm blood from Ihe great, throbbing
heart of the outside world pulsing through
the college. Professors raust not be mere
prof-.-ssors. They must be men first and
professors afterwards. They must be In
sjmpaUivwiththespirltofthetlmes. Thev
must know to-day as well as they know
epochs thalarcmarkcd B.C. tn thechronolog
ical table. -All human life must interest
them. "Homo sum;' human! nihil a me
alienum pulo."
Kecurring' to my physiological flijure,
newspajK-rs are one artery by which ihe
life-blood of the social organism may be
carried through the tissues cf the college.
