The Southern Kaco Question.
In conncctlon with the discussion-that
is now going on concerning the race
problem In the south, growing out of re
ments in southern papers regarding the
work of Booker Washington are suggestive
enough to be worthy of consideration
Conservative southern papers,
and a few not so conservative, that are
commenting on the question, are of the
opinion that a few more Booker "WaahIngtons
would go far toward eliminating
the prejudice which now exists, and
would at least better the conditions.
The southern states are doing .1 great
deal in the way of supporting the colored
public schools, and the results have
been'most satisfactory In several of the
states. But the plan of Booker Washington
covers a much broader field than
the mere instruction of the colored people
of that section in the rudiments of
common school learning. He is applying
a great principle in connection with
this education, which renders the learning
of more advantage to his people in
the south than comes with the mere
The work which Booker Washington,
who. by the way, is a product of "West
Virginia, is doing, does not by any
means find Its sole support In th-> north,
but the southern press and southern
people recognize in i;. the forerunner of
better days In the future for the colored
race. It will tak:> some years to
make the plan general enough, but the
cffects of what has already been done
by this one man is felt and recognized,
and those who are on th.- ground thoroughly
appreciate it.
The Birmingham, Alabama, News,
furnishes a fair sample of the comment
which is becoming frequent in the
southern press, as a result o? the Impression
made by Booker Washington's
Institution, which has attracted so
much attention throughout the country
on account of its successful efforts.
In characteristic language, the News
remarks that "Washington's object is
to teach the negro to do something,"
and continues:
He does not bellovo is the "prominent
colored cltlzcn" who has no trade. He has
a contempt for th*.? "smart nlwer" who
l!vf>? li\* hln wits Tn r>thf-r tvnrrfc Wioh.
lngton 13 teaching his people 10 become respectable
and self-respecting members of
society, and the only way to do that, as he
rightly puts it is to know how to earn a
pood livelihood. This wonderful man deserves
the sympathy and encouragement
of every white person in the south. He ir.
a genlu* who hap accomplished :;s much
In his way a? Edison has in the field ot
electricity. He is a man o.' common sense
end earnest honesty, and hi? fidelity to the
h'jfh mission in which ho is achieving no
much success Is worthy cf the admiration
of tho world.
Washington's influence Is spreading
through the south where this work Is
most needed, becausc or the peculiar
conditions. I-ie has solved the important
problem. Tho establishment of
similar institutions, following out the
plan of work Instituted by thin man In
every state where the advancement, by
reason of ignorance on the one side and
prejudice on the other, has been clow,
will provea power in the direction indicated
by tho Birmingham paper.
There arc otlier Booker Washington:;,
many of them. They only need to come
to the front. It Is eminently proper
that the leaders In t'n5s movement
should be men of the colored race, and
the News undoubtedly rellects the truth
when it says that the work would be
cncouraged by every intelligent white
person In the south.
Incidentally it may be noted, with
pleasure, that the state of West Virginia
supports a. similar Institution to
that established by Hooker Washington.

A Costly lint Wholesome Lesson.
The young man from out the Baltimore
& Ohio road, who was foolish
enough to be taken In by the "green
goods" swindle perpetrated on him by
two strangers In this city Thursday,
does not deserve a great amount, of
sympathy, though the swindlers do deserve
a term In the penitentiary. The
young man should have known, If he
<11(1 not, that to circulate counterfeit
money knowingly Is as much of a crime
as to manufacture It. Had he been an
attentive newspaper reader he would
have known that he was being made a
victim of an old trick. When he came
to V,'heeling and handed over to strangers.
whom hf had never.lald eyes upon
before, the sum of $350 of his.hard earned
good money, each dollar being worth
one hundred cents under our gold standard,
with tli" expectation that he was
to receive in return 33,GOO In "money"
that was guaranteed to deceive Uncle
Ham's smoothest experts,he should have
known, In this enlightened age, that he
was romlng her<' to bo a party to a
swindle, in the capacity of the victim.
It 1n an amazing fact that so many
apparently honeat people aro &o easily
led into auch trouble as this young innn i
has Buffered. HJb 5350 in ca?h went o
with tho disappearance of the green r
goods men,and he was not even eoinpen- r
aated with the bogus funds promised, t
i He has paid dearly for his folly, just as b
thousand;* of other victims have done i
before, who have been persuaded that v
they could get rich by buyln:; money a
"guaranteed, to deceive anybody." u
These victims do not come from the
criminal classes, we regret to say, but
aro often . well-meaning, Innocent Indi- 1
virtuals who do not read the newspaper r
warnings against such swindlers, and x
whoso consciences are sorely and sue- 1
cessfully tempted by the smooth tongued ;|
scoundrel, who visits him In his home (1
and persuades him it- is not wrong to
circulate money that Is "Just as perfect 11
as the.real thing."
Tho Groat Steel Combine. r
It turns out that the Carnegie Steel ^
Company is to be the back-bone of the 41
monster^teel combination in process of u
formation, and the capital of which is 11
to be several hundred millions of dol- a
lars. It Is to include several very large li
corporations, with capital ranslng from
twenty to a hundred millions' each, tho
Carnegie Company representing the I
latter Ugure. Mr. Carnegie, It la, alleged,
will retire from business and Mr.
Frlcl: is to conduct matters. . 1
The anouncement is giving rise to a s
great amount of' discussion concerning i]
thin climax of the combination move- (1
ment This one, which is to hav* -for p
its;'back-bond the Carnegie Steel Com- d
pany, is to comhlne also the National
Steel Company, the American Tin Plate o
Company, the American Steel Iloop -c
Company, the American Steel and "Wire J"
Company, the National Tin Plate and (]
Enamel Company, and a number of a
others. Each of the corporations Is c
something of a combine in Itself, ami ?
the whole is to be a combination ot
combines. It Is wide In its scopo and o
will be powerful In Its Influence on the c
steel market, for It will be In practical ^
There have been denials from parties
Interested In the combination that the
plans were formulated, but the latest 1
statements are made on apparently
good authority. One of the authorities
for much of the Information concerning
the proposed combination, President
Gates, of the American Steel and Wire
Company, says the capital may reach
a billion dollars, that it will take in
about all the companies worth having,
and that It Is not a trust, but a combine,
which, as a single distributer, will be a
"good thing and make business better."
It Is stnrorflv linnocl th'nt "Mr t<*
correct in his calculations:.
The near future will develop whether
the biff combinations that are being:
formed will prove a positive benefit to
the country or not. In most cases one
of the causes.' and it may be said th*
principal cause, for the formation of a
number of them, is held to be the depression
of prices resulting from 'lie
competition amon? producers. It all
depends upon the wisdom with which
the control of prices is exercised as to
whether the combines are wise in themselves
or not. That is all In the future.
There Is r.o doubt that a large number
of the new trusts that are trusts
pure and simple havs been created to
make new securities to be sold on the
market for a profit, for great quantities
of the stock are watered. The new steel
organization, however, if the statements
of those who are at the head of
the deals arc to bo taker, is to be classed
anions the more substantial of the
combines, with their capitalization and
stocks based upon actual values, and
formed merely because competition has v
become so great that the competitors jj
find it necessary to place a limit on it tl
by combining. This explains the expression
of President Gates, to the ef- e'
feet that where there is but one dlstribuior
trade will be Unproved and c;
prices sustained. a
If the steel combine is to be conducted
on legitimate lines in this respect,
it may accomplish that benefit. It ccr- b
tainly has the facilities for it. It is
hoped that, while all these events in the 11
business world are taking place, the
necessity of legislation that will prevent
the possibilities of trusts formed for ?
the sole purpose of manufacturing se- ?*
curl ties based on watered stock and Cl
representing practically nothing will f<
nnt f nrt"nf t ..n Thnv nr.-. M
and work great evil. The whole subject
of trusts is one for serious consideration.
The Philippine Situation. *
The news from Manila this morning j
Is good news. The steady advance of I
the Americans in the campaign In f*
northern Luzon carries victory ivith it \
at every point. General MacArtliur'n t
division captured San Fernando, which o
was one of Aguinaldo'c strongholds, 8
without loss, the rebels having evacuated
the place, and as usual set'lirc to \
It. MacArthur's troops now occupy the t
town. 1
Further particulars from the advance j.
of General Law ton's division indicate a
that it has been attended wit ft consid- K
erably more fighting than was at first 1
reported. An Incident which signifies "
how unworthy the Filipinos aro of the t
sympathy they are receiving from cer- v
tain quarters In this country, ia found
in the statement that when Lawton
was attacking the trenches outside of j
Ballnag, he noticed that the Tagals had I
women and children in the trenches to a
prevent the Americans from firing en j r
themselves. He sent Captain Case with i ;
a party undo-* a white flag to warn the t
cowards to take the women and ehll- j*
dren from the position, and the party t
was fired upon. All things considered
the campaign in being pushed rapidly
ana succcsstuuy.

Louisville Courier Journal, (Pem.):
'he action of the postmaster general In ]
topping the transmission to the Philippines
of Edward Atkinson's pamphlet |
eslgne? to excite mutiny nmong our
oldIcr?; at the front was not taken a
ay too soon.
There has been too much of that sort
f thing. and if this should not r,top It
teps should be taken to enforce the ,
\\v against U. Our troops In tho Philippines
are not the tribunal which Is to
etermlne our Philippine policy. They j
re there to ohey orders, and no one
an be allowed to Incite them to discontent
or worse by appealing to them as '
n advocate of any particular policy. ;
Mr. Atkinson's argument in defense !
f his course is no argument nt all, ex- j
ept against himsel:'. Th? pamphlets, j
e sayr.. were addressed, one to the
'resident and tho other to the senate,

The count docs not, however, think
bai international disarmament is an

.1 a hundred years, as, under present i
onditions, It would be national suicide
)r any country to relinquish its nation- I

Tolstoi counsels an annual reduction |
nd were addressed against the policy of j
criminal aggression." But addressing
he President and the senate against
he Philippine policy Is one thing, while
t is quite another thing to so address
he soldiers whose sole duty Is to carry
ut the policy which they are ordered
y the President and Congress to carry i
ut. The- fact, urged by Mr. Atkinson, I
hat his pamphlets are largely rehaahes ]
f matter that has appeared In the Con- I
:re.*s!onal Record, Is not in the least j
ertlnent. Congress is the place where
rpuments for or against any proposed
'hllipplne policy should be made; not
he army; and most emphatically not
he army actively engaged in executing
he orders of the government. Mr. Atinson
may present his arguments, his
ppcals, his demands, his Invectives to
longre&s if he chooses; but when ho ntfmntB
to net them before our soldiers
nd to Influence them from the performnce
of their duty, he violates not only
he- law, but the simplest principles on
rlilch our government rests.
Mr. Atkinson Ir, an intelligent man.
