The case of the young: woman who grave birth to a child in the police station excites sympathy. This Is natural jg? and creditable. Also It excites iii-aavised comment. Perhaps thl? too Is natural. When our Sympathies are appealvr^; ?d to we do not always Invite reason to the Judgment seat The case was distinctively a charity p: case. We have no hospital in Wheeling | necessarily open to an emergency ft- case of this kind. If It be p thought that we should have such a hospital, then there is an opening for now philanthropic endeavor. There would be less trouble to keep full such an Institution that there would be to I'. sustain it. The hospitals we have are 7 not Kept going" easily. The lot of the young1 woman here spoken of is hard. That which happened to her In 'Wheeling is not the hardest part of it. That la to come. It will not he chared by the man who, if nut the author of it all, is at least her partner in this part of it. An Institution for men of that kind would be very different from a hospital; but (his phase of such cases dees not bother society much. Bank men who gro wrong: are showing a preferetvce for the suloide route.* If they were to think of that earlier it WOUiO wo wriiui. Work for CootIcU. ? New York ha3 on Its hands 3,000 penitentiary convicts for whom it is trying: to And work not forbidden by law. With the beginning of the present year there went into effect a constitutional provisj Ion -which forbids the making of articles by convict labor which oorae into competition wtth similar products of free p labor. Tho convicts will be allowed to make articles for prison use, but this leaves about two-thirds of them out of r em ploy* meat. This is a very grave situation. Nothing moro cruel could well 6c imposed on I j. convicts. They feel it and beg for work. Men who in a state of freedom resorted I to any shift to keep from working, now ask piteously to be saved from the horn?r of prison idleness. The government of the prison, never an easy task, bocomes a more serious problem. The authorities do not know Just how they are going to meet it. The competition of prison-made goods I with the products of free labor has worked hardship in many branches of indusl try. This prublem i? solved by putting ? - ** ~ Rnf fh?? _?nlti an enu luiimwiuireMiK/n. ?- ? ? tlon of one problem creates another not go easy to meet. New York's effort will be watched with interest. Whether Spain or Cuba wins It will take many a year to recover what the Island has losU If Spain wins It will take j longer. A Pe?allar Commonwealth. i The first of January edition of the Bocky Mountain News, published at Denver, Colorado, is a magnificent specimen of a great newspaper. The New* Is a good paper every day In the year, but every short while there is on occasion on which It surpasses itself. The first of the new year is always such an occasion. ' After the manner of the Chicago papers It then gets out a boom edition and resolves Itself Into a cyclopedia of boundless Information In regard to ail that appertains to the prosperity and glory of Colorado and the adjacent region. So It was this first of January. Hence we have before us a Ivfe thirty-two paged paper, Allied with statistics and re?ume? as to what ha* been accomplished In the ! various fields of production for which that state Is noted, during the year IRDfl. 8ome people think of Colorado ma purely a mining region. In fact It waa allied % "mining camp" in the late campalgn. And quite generally, too. It la Jookcd upon as In tho main a silver mining camp. The silver craze prevailed out there to such a decree of vlo1ence In the late campaign that It Is no wonder tho average citizen made this mistake. A mistake tt certainly Is to entertain any ?uch Idea of Colorado, for, as between gold and silver prixluctlon, I It is a gold state. That Jx to say. It produces onc-tuird more gold than silver, measured In value. In other words. It produced l&tit year sixteen and a half . millions of gold against about twelve millions of silver. Therefore, if it is anything In particular as a metallic state, it is a gold state, and one would suppose should have at least fairly divided Its vote between the "gold bugs" arid "silver beetles" on the third of November, instead of giving seven-eighths of It to the gross and crown man. When wo conBlder ihnt Colorado has only Just come of age as a state In the Union the showing that It makes of progress nnd prosperity is remarkable. We r r<;fer to Ita progress in uu piruvuimn, wive, of cour.?e, In politic*. Like Kanaaa and Nebraska, It sot a good atari from Che Republican party anil then deserted. Judging from thy superior development of Ita gold and Km agriculture, an alao of Jt* coaf and Iron, It will find Ha way buck Into the fold by 1900. A state producing throe and a half million tona of coal, and over seven and a half million dollar* worth of steel and Iron product, saying nothing of its output of copper and lead, and twenty-two and a half million dollars worth of agricultural product, 15 naturally a Republican state. Before the war the then unnamed area now known as Colorado wad put down on the maps as part of tlio "American desert." Butfor Its mines It would have been practically unsettled to-day. Nobody dreamed of Hs possibilities in the way of agriculture. And yet, by the hand of science, it bas become an agricultural state of cio mean Importance. Through irrigation?through 'the tapping i of Its rivers and reservoir!its ofltsmoun- | tain streams?it has been made to produce wheat and grass and potatoes, oats, barley and garden product to the amount of the vast sum named. And In this manner has a country denied "Its early *nd Its latter rains," and given over to tiunshlne and dry air -for two-thirds of the year, been actually made to produce crops more reliably than we can produce them here in the Ohio Valley with forty Inches of rainfall. The valley of the Nile In Egypt has its counterparts in the valleys of the Arkansas and of the Flatte.in Colorado. By irrigation canals an alkali soil can be made almost alluvial in its productiveness. This phase of agriculture is not peculiar to Colorado by any means, but is being carried on in New Mexico, Arizona and. In fact, clear through to the Pacific coast. Millions of acres of land are thus brought under cultivation, and wo are not surprised to read, in the News that they command from $20 to $100 per acre, acJWith a frti 1 nrln-f 11">n uinuiii^ luMtuuii. >? .... ? .v.,? Ilk? tWfl for its prosperity the state of Colorado can afford to dismiss its sliver craze and return to rational political views. All Indications point to the likelihood that she is to be the leading producer of gold In this country. In the next year or two she will probably produce one-half of our -fifty millions output. The world is producing gold now at a , rate undreamed of a few years ago. Dur- I ing McKlnley's term a thousand millions will probably be added to the stock of the I world.andtihlsmeans that silver will come on down in price, just as It has come, down to 65 cents from $1 29, until even Bryan will not have the cheek in 1900 to , advocate making a dollar out of 3711 grains. By that time this young commonwealth will have such an abundance | of prosperity from all her varied resources that she will not specialize one of them as she did last year and try to make a national issue of it. In other words, like South Carolina she will have had her experience and bo done with her foolishness. If Spain can suppress the revolt In thf Philippine# she may then be able to accomplish something in Cuba. The Philippine trouble is only a little one In comparison, but Spain has not shown herself strong enough to down it. The Newipapcr Interview. The late Editor McCullagh, of the St. I?ouIs Globe-Democrat, goes down into history as the inventor of the newspaper interview. The idea struck him -while he was a Washington correspondent. It was a good thought Newspaper readers liked it and public men found it very convenient. Le?3 for mal than a signed article, affording more room "to turn round In," there Id | no better vehicle than the Interview for conveying Information and thought. A j bright Interviewer makes even a dull man appear to advantage. The good points of the Interview were ) Blow to be appreciated In Kurope, but i the thing has taken hold there and la I well thought of. Men in every high place abroad make use of It, though not to the same extent as In this country. \ Here the President often finds the interview Just to his hand. In this case it I Is very carefully prepared and as care- J fully revised. If the Inventor could have received a small fraction of a cent royalty on every Interview he would have had money enough to put Mm at the head of a trust A Kentucky octogenarian wanted to be burled In a Atone coffin, asked that his mortal remains be saturated in a barrelful of Bourbon whisky, and to give him the good of the same he stipulated that the coffin be hermetically sealed. And accordingly it was so done. Here we have another brilliant instance of "ths ruling 1 pamlon strong in death." If that man had looked not upon the Bourbon he might have lived to a ripe old age. It Is thought that Mr. Piatt has enough votes to make him the next United States senator from Now York. If ho has not enough now he will have by the time he needs them. No others need apply. Mr. Piatt is not the kind of politician to wait till the last minute to make sure of what he want* Hp loaves that kind of politics to the kindergarten politicians who are grooming Mr. Choate. Our good friend the Register la kin U/ hut firmly Informed that "the final months of the McKInley tariff" came along after a Democratic President and a Democratic Congress has been chosen, and were under the dark shadow of those clouds. Solt happened that the McKInley tariff law was considerably modified before It was repealed. The railroads expect better business. This Is the moaning of their largo orders for equipment The railroad buslnesn Is a pretty good barometer, ami the manager* of that business are close observers of conditions, flam Jones tells Boston that it Is "within half a mile of hell." Brother JoilCJ should have a care. He may fall In. If wo go to war with Spain we can j fight her deficit with ours. That will be a pretty sight. Woman nnd IheRlnrrr llannrr.

"WHEBE BOLLS THE OBEQOH." Wonderfat Slpildctneeof (he Opening of the Cuctdi Lock*. New York Mail and Express: The formal opening, a fewe weeks ago, of the PoMnoiU Iru^lra In ^nllimhln rtvJM* ffflq I an event which the Portland Oregontan may well be excused for celebrating: with such exuberance of Joy and profuseness of colored ink. This great public improvement, -begun an long- ago as the year 1880, has just been finished, and gives 230 miles of continuous and deep water navigation on the Columbia between the *>cean and the Dalles. The Cascade Rapids, seventy-ftve miles above Portland, haw always been an Insuperable barrier to navigation. Since 1888 Congress has been liberal in its appropriations for the improvement of the Columbia for navigation, and the first step /n that direction Is the completion of this splendid system of locks at the Cascades, which lifts ascending commerce around the rocky and tumultous rapids which have hitherto placed the head of navigation on the Columbia a few miles above the mouth of the Willamette. With the exception of the "father of water*" himself, there Is not in North A mnrlna nnnHiflr rlvAP ?n VAJ?t. or SO im portant to commerce, as Bryant's "rolling Oregon," of which, however, the poet had probably no adequate conception when be wrote "Thunatcpsls." Over 1,000 miles inland the Columbia' has depth enough to float an ocean steamer. The removal of one more obstruction? the rapids at the Dallea?will open to navigation 1,750 miles of navigable waters in the Columbia and Its tributaries. The Columbia drains fully 300,000 square miles, an area four times as large as New. England. Between the great "inland empire" of four rich states and the sea there now remains ony the stretch of eight miles of rapids at the Dalles?, and around this obstruction the government is building a ship railway'. Within a few years the northwestern metropolis will be celebrating another "opening," and the commerce of the majestic river will then go from the foothills of the Rockies "unvexed to the sea." Another great government work, completed almost simultaneously with the Cascade locks, and destined to affect almost as intimately the commercial Interests of Portland, Is the great Jetty extending out from Point Adams, at the mouth of the Columbia. This Jetty, the longest 4a the wnrld, thrusts Itself boldly out nearly Ave miles into the Faciiic. it i* fifteen feet wide on top. and 1s instructed of rocks, held in place by piles. It closes up the southerly channel of the river, and the current, thus confined, keeps open a deep and natural gateway to the sea. besides providing a safe fresh water harbor. The largest vessels afloat may now enter the Columbia and moor at the docks of Portland, 100 miles from tlx* sea. More distinctively than any of the cities of the northwest, Portland has moved forward steadily and conservatively to it* present commercial supremacy. Unaffected by "booms." it has es..1.4 i.. .inrnu ihn hnrlr-tpfa flllf l-Jipt-U, HI mtfiv --ferod by the "boom" cltites. And the Columbia river is the artery Af its life's blood. Omnipresent.

A Novel Work Inaugurated lu Boston Among Yoau? Folk*. Ladies' Home Jouroal: That la a. splendid work which has been started In Boston; (lie formation of a number of the school-children into a Juvenile atreet-cleanlng brigade. Every member ; Is pledged to pick up stray pieces of j paper which he may see on the street, and deposit them in receptacles provided by the city at convenient points. In New York a similar system of volun- I tary street-cleaning has been organized among the children. In Philadelphia a civic league, composed of children, has been formed. No member Is allowed to throw bits of paper, fruit or any refuse whatever in the streets, nor injure, deface or mark fences, stoops or property of any sort. In Hartford the movement has been started, and in smaller places the idea has taken root and organizations are being formed. It is a plan which cannot spread too rapidly nor too widely. Before we can hope to be clean ourselves we > must keep our streets clean, and while our municipal governments can, of course, do much, each of us, as Individuals, can do more. Experience has pretty conclusively shown that it is next to Impossible lo keep clean the streets of a city or of a town unless through some general movement there is stimulated a local pride, such as will find practical expression In the residents lending hearty and effective co-operation to the work of the author!tlM A man or woman teara up a letter into small bits and throws the pieces Into the street unmindful of the fact that by doing so he or she litters up the street for hours. Another throws a banana peel or an orange skin Into the street; some one elsp casts away something else, and each person adds to the general dire of the streets, and indirectly to the decrease of good health in the community. On the other hand. if everyone would refrain from throwing litter of any sort Into the streets, our cities and towns would show an astonishing improvement and our peneral health would be better. This Is the point for "grown-ups" to observe. The children cannot have a bettor lesson enforced upon them than that of cleaning and helping to keep clean the streets. If they are taught to have a regard for the appearance of the street the lesson will easily extend to the rooms In which they live. The smallest of our communities should take up this idea: the formation of clubs and brigades among the children to keep the streets and highways clean. It Is one of the easiest things Jo do. and one oc me most profitable. But the elders must lead the way. B. & 0. COAL BU8IHE99 Getting Traffic Auaj- From Its Competitor*?A. >-hi*wd More. The Baltimore News says: The Baltimore & Ohio road's activity in the soft coal business la causing considerable anxiety to its competitors and seems likely to involve the bituminous coal trade in some kind of a struggle. Competitor* of Baltimore & Ohio say that its policy seems \o be to grab tonnage on any -terms all the time. The company, as is well known, has Increased its gross bu&toesa largely in the iaat few months, but It la said by some that net earnings have not Improved at all. The Baltimore & Ohio is said to have ! put Us men on a system of probation so that their places will be continued to j "?cui uviuiuiug u? uiu i trauiia iinj iuui In during a given period. The other trunk linen, not having such a system, find, of course, that their men nre not as active as the Baltimore & Ohio men, and are therefore loainff business. When tho attention of General Manager Greene wm called to the suspicion entertained against tho Baltimore &. Ohio, he said: "It Is true that we are doing a magnificent business, and an* therefore very thankful, but I emphatically deny any policy that was not strictly legitimate or In accordance with the rules of the Joint Traffic Association. 80 Jong as our business was small, our competitors did not complain, but when wo began to secure our Ju*t nharc of the tonnage offering they Immediately ralf?od the cry that we were rutting rates. I repeat that all of this talk that the Baltimore & Ohio I* not maintaining rates 1? without any foundation whatever, and emanated from sources Jealous of the large Increase In our business. We are not worrying about what our competitors say of ii?, so long as wo get the business and know that It comes to us without any Inducement In the shape of reduced rales or rebates."
