The public I to be congratulated upon tlio fact that In addition to the nble ami reputable Justices above n. uued there Is plenty of good material ar the bar from which to Meet men who would be a credit to the bench. THE NEW DRAINAGE BOARD. Then Is a Brave responsibility Im posed upon the new Drainage Hoard which was elected hist Tuesday by tho people of Chicago and the outly ing territory, embraced by the ill trlct. This Is probably best exempli tied In the following extract taken troni the nddies Issued by the Itcpuh llenn County Central Committee to the voters befoie election: The Ito.inl of Trustees of the Saul tary District N nio-t linporiant to very taxpayer and cltl.cn. More than .5iUkmk) of the ieodn's money has already been spent towards l In1-' the people pure water, -still th.it most Important object has not yet been attained. The Republican candi dates are pledged to ht.ut at once the work necessary to complete the purl tleatlon of our water supply and to administer the nlfnlrs of the Sanitary District on an economical bii-lne-s basis, In all other respect the.i -land for niHl are pledged to pro'-'nsle iiumm tires hiieli as developing the water power for public ue,s ami In inaklir.' the thousands of acres of adjoining land productive by Inducing inanufic turers to locate thereon. Thee pro Jck't.s when completed will prnetlcilly sustain the Drainage Hoard and pi.t Interest on the bonded Indebtcdm". of tho district, reducing taxes to tint extent. Mr. Itobert It. McCnrmlck, the new ly elected president of the board, also puts tho Munition well In the tollon inv statement: "TJio olllco of president and trustee of the Sanitary District Is an excep tionally Important one at this time. "Fifteen jcar have gone by since the Sanitary Dlstrbt was organized. Tho enormous sum of SlCOOOrfM has been spent. ISut we hao not yet he eurisl what wo liavi ji.ild for, namelj, jMirn water.

It ought to be completed and completed quickly. The way to get that done Is to elect olllccrs of the Sanitary Dis trict xvho will not let this work drag along from year to year, but xvho xvlll take hold of It and push It to a llnlli. "The Hepubllcaii candidate are pledged to push this great xvork, and every part of It. to a speedy end! to make every dollar of the people's money do n dollar's worth of xvork for the people; to make the district's vast xvatcr poxxer a direct benellt to the people In cheap street lighting and lots of It; to make the district s dock plop erty produce revenue to support the district government and so lighten the tax 'burden on the people." Tiie are excellent sentiments mid good pledges. The people will look to the new Drainage Hoard for speclllc performance of them, and xvlll doubt less get It. This xve. believe, because the men xvho have been elected to this Impor tant olllce by the people are all hon orable, upright men mid good citizens. Interested in the welfare of the people and of the city of Chicago, and while xx-e regret the retirement of some tried and faithful members of the board xve leel cnullilcut that the uexv body xvlll do Justice to the public and honor to theniselx-e. THE GRAFTERS MUST 00. In his address of xvelcome at tho one hundred and llfty-second opening of Columbia university, President Nicho las Murray Ilutler took occasion to point out the forcible Illustration now being afforded the rising genera tion of the dllTerencu between repu tation mid character. The American people are lecelvlug some painful les nins In practical ethics, as President ltutler says, mid of late xve have been xvatchlng reputations "melt axvay like mioxv before the huh." President ltut ler bad In mind, of course, the Insur ance scandals. There has, Indeed, been matter brought to light to make mi honest man blush. Hamilton V. Mnhlc, another Ameilcau, whose pat riotism mid cleanliness of thought none xvlll deny, even though ho may not tank as a Ilmiucler, has Just returned from lhirope. Current scandals In eoiumerelal life, he says, are the talk of the hour In Europe mid It Is a mailer oi siiamo to any American to hear hi countrymen referred to a sxxiiidleis mid sharpers. Mr. Mable fears that our business prospects mid the respect in which our tlmiuciers havo heretofore been held have been changed. Today In Kngland, (Jer many mul Franco the American, when tlnauce is discussed, must be prepared to meet tho f;ilut smile and ipilet sneer of contempt. This U a penalty we have to pay for the wrong-doing of tho big men of tho American money xvorld, xvho have long abused eonlldcuco re posed In them and managed their trusts for tliolr oxvn protlts rather than for tho beuollts of the people they rep resented. It will not do, however, to take a too hopeless vluxv of this sit uation. A met lea has no monopoly of crookedness In tliuiuce. It I true that It Is hard to recall a time xvhen In foreign iitf.ilm so many names of prominence were besmirched as In the present New York disclosure, but niiglnud has had Its llooleys of recent date, and a for Franco, It Is the last one entitled to set up as critic. Prin cipally, however, the saving feature Is American public opinion. No man can for a moment doubt that the peo ple of our country are right. If men xvho have sat In high place- must fall, If family names long honored mut havo the stain of thievery put on them, If reputation must ho punctured thiniigh and through with graft and deceit. It Is better It should all coium nt once. And It uuint be noted that public opinion Is not In favor of spar ing.' any one, but clamors rather for full es'posltlou of all the Iniquity ami tho throwing out of tho grafters and thieve. 77; NATIONAL GAME, The winning pitcher stood In the bo, gripping the ball between hi cunning fingers. I.lke a gladiator ho looked oxer the opposing batsuutii as tliey crept up to the plate. For eight Innings tlley had i-ought to solve the mystco of lils dllver.r and for eight Inning he hud mowed them down like grass beforu tho sickle.

The pitcher squirmed and sent another ball speed lug over tlio plate. Smash! Away It went willing to the fence. Txvo run came In ami the score was tied. The people 1 1 the stand sat mot Ionics. Their cheers died uway. Victory xxmk slipping from their grasp. The oppos ing side took courage. Another bats man lilt safely. Then the people In the stands fell upon their Idol. Fierce yell rent the air. "Take hlin out," "chase hlin nxvay," "dub," "lobster," and other ribald salutation were hurl ed at the man xvho but a few mo ments before had won the applause and cries of approval of the thousand xvho had admired his faultless xvork. As he xveiit skulking from the grounds Ills haughty smile disappeared, his shoulders sank In, listlessly hi arms hung by his Hide and the lire of vic tory faded from his eyes. The suHen despair of defeat gleamed luridly be neath his beetling fi.ow. And hoxv the peoplo Jeered tho same people, mind you, xvho had cheered his name so lustily a few minutes before. Strug gling over the heads of Ills felloxvs I seen the strong Ilgure In tho world of business In tho mighty domain of dollars.

Hu Is listened to as though he xvere an oracle and xvlsdom spoke through him. Hut one day the finan cial xvorld has a chill the great Ilmiu cler has fallen with his house of cards. And xvblle he lies groaning In the dust of defeat the same men xvho xvere loudest lu their praise of him become the leaders lu the howling mob that lends and tears at hi fallen carcass, linger hand are always outstretched to grasp the hand of the seeming vic tor, whether on the play ground or In the mart of trade. The same hands are as eager to hurl a pike or throw a Javelin when defeat oxertakes their Idol. The cheer of the multitude are for those xvho win all the xvuy for the man wlmo entire life spells sue tess. Down below, In the scml-dark, men may struggle Just as hard for victory, toll earnestly, unceasingly, through all the long years mul Just miss the mark. They may never reap the applause of their fellow men; but, also, their very obscurity may bo an armor to shield them from the poison ed shafts of envy, nuillco and tho brood of evils that grow rank in tho human breast.

Clovernor Deneen eiime to the city, did his duty as a citizen by voting In his home precinct mid then left again for Sprlnglleld, That Is the gov ernor's way of doing tilings great or small In politics! quietly, unostenta tiously, but effectively. There never xvas a more ably con ducted campaign In Hie history of Chicago than that handled by the Itc publican organization leaders this fall.

In all campaigns nothing tells like organized and systematic xvork, and lu this the gentlemen nam ed and others among their colleagues urn past masters. The Itepubllcau or ganization of Cook County und Its lenders have certainly good reason to congratulate thetusoli-e.
