TUESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1911. FRESrDENT DENKT1! DECISION. In common sorrow the friends of education In Virginia will join the vast eomphny of alumni and students and ether members of Washington and Lee University In lamenting the decision of President George H. Denny to leave the Coo old institution at Lexington and take up his work anew at Tusoaloosa. Immeasurable regret will be felt, not alone In this Stale, but in many others as woU, that this strong educational leader has decldod to transfer his splen flid abilities and his constructive ener? gies to Alabama. Despite the unani? mous appeals of the pross and the peo? ple of this Commonwealth, President Denny feels that he hears the one clear call of duty, and lhat It bids him leave the State in which for more than a decade he has striven mightily and successfully for the noble cause of higher education. Nono can doubt that it Is impossible ?for President Denny to describe "the wrench and sorrow that this decision has cost me." New and untried, he assumed the headship of a great uni? versity when scarce thirty, and for a decade he has discharged his high trusl superbly, and leaves Washington and Lee bettor because ho sorved it. Large? ly through hlo efforts has It been brought about that that university is to-day "serving, without sham or pre? tense, the Commonwealth and the Na? tion with greater power and efficiency than at any other period of Its remark? able history." In all this service it has been a notable fact that President Den py's relations with the trustees, alumni, faculty and atudent body have been harmonious, without a single marring exception upon ?ie luminous record of his presidency. All members of Wash? ington and Lee University have pro? tested in a mighty chorus that their friend and Joader should remain, and his decision will cast fathomless gloom upon the whole town of Lexington. Under President Denny's wise admin? istration, the university at Lexington has "prospered In a remarkable de? gree." Its endowment has been great? ly increased, ,and, In plant, In equip? ment, In standards and In members, the Institution has advanced rapidly. To this great work of ten years the retiring president gave himself gladly sund unreservedly. With ?o Bplcndid a record of con? structive leadership behind htm, It Is ?ot hard to divine the reason why tho Unlvorslty of Alabama should seek out George H. Denny. Alabama hUB longed for a great educational head, and as Lowell said of Charles W. Eliot, of Har? vard, and as another eaid of S. C. Mitch? ell, of South Carolina, eo may now the frle&ds of the University of Ala? bama, exclaim: "VvVh ave'- found a cap? itate at last!" It must be said in frank? ness that President Denny is correct In declaring that "there In greater oppor? tunity In Alabama for constructive ser? vice to the entire system of public edu? cation than would bo open to me at this time in Virginia." There is un? doubtedly an "ampler opportunity there for this aggressive executive to Eerve in the general cause of education. Alabama has not developed the educa? tional system which obtains In Vir? ginia; there is In the newer State a su? perb opportunity for upbuilding. There are but two State educational institu? tions In Alabutna?the University an.l the Alabama Polytechnic Institute. The other colleges of Alabama are negligi? ble. The potential Importune,; and sig? nificance of the University in the life and thought of Alabama and the South are obvious. There the head of the Unlverolty will be th* educational head of the State, and in such a situation It Is not hard to see what th< broad Vision and the great energies of George H. Denny can accomplish. Great the task, but the man will measure up io it "Unfretted by a single unhappy mem? ory," this scholarly, able, magnetic Vir? ginian goes to hie new Held, conscious that the mingled regret and good wishes of Virginia follow him In all the days that are to come. May the fullest measure of success be his in Alabama! EMANCIPATION OK MUNICIPAL!" j TIES. At the recent International Municipal j Congress a paper was read which had been prepared by Governor Dlx. of New York. Hie theme wag home rul? In American cities, which Ke favorr Governor Dix is in a position to speak with authority on the method In which American municipalities are so largely governed from State capi? tals, instead of by the people who live In the cities and who pay the taxes essential for the maintenance of city' government. He has seen, as most people have, that Tammany has found It easier to keep its clutches about the throat of New York City by going to Albany and securing Btate legislation tbat b.elps the loaders of the organlaav tlon in accomplishing their evil de? signs. Among other things written In the paper of Governor Dlx are: "Tho time has come when the oltlee should demand that Instead of being governed as subject provinces they should be endowed with powers of government ae complete and cfnaient as those vestod In State and nation. "The State should pormlt every city to be a self-governing community. Tho relation of the State to municipal gov- 1 ernment should begin and end with; the grant to the municipality of power; to act for Itself. Endow our Cities I with self-government, to which they i are entitled, and at once there will be created a sense of civic pride and olvlo responsibility that will In turn gen? erate a vivid sense of public welfare." Governor Dlx Is wholly right. The municipalities of the nation certainly are too restricted within spheres In which they should have praotlcally exclusive power. The cities of this country do not enjoy that measure of local self-government which Is con? sistent with a republican country. Ex? cept In matters of State and general policy, the cities and towns should bo allowed to govern themselves without Interference by a body far removed from the Interests of the particular municipality. This republic Is founded on the basic Idea that each commun? ity shall govern its own affairs?which is far from the faot now. WTNFIELD SCOTT SCHLBY. That death which he had faced so often unflinchingly in almost half a century of gallant servlco finally over? came Wlnflold Scott Schloy yesterday. At last this heroic old fighter of the seu has hauled down his flag and touched with unreturnlng tread the golden shore of Eternity. His life was a series of meetings with dan? ger and tho unknown, out of which he came unscathed, his record stain? less, despite the perseoutlon of petty enemies and narrow rivals. No naval history of this nation can be wgitten without extended and honorable mention of this distin? guished Marylander. In the War Be? tween the States be served the Union with conspicuous gallantry In unnum? bered engagements; later, he risked life to push through walls of Ice and the fearful rigors of the far North to rescue the ill-fated Greely expcdl tlon. His most famous fighting was in the Spanish-American War when he commanded the "Flying Squadron.'' The story of Schley'B skill and dauntless courage at Santiago when ho was pitted ugatnst Cervera cannot be erased from the annals of Ameri? can bravery. His course In that cele? brated naval battle seems more com? mendable as time goes on?only a few days ago an eminent naval critic de? clared that schlcy's tactics In that light were those now approved by the best ir.Lv.il authorities of the world. Forty-five years Admiral Schley served under the ting of his country. He was greater than his critics, greater than his rivals, and through the rapidly dissolving fogs of un? truth and prejudice, he looms larger in the history of the nation. Schley was essentially a fighter?circum? stances played little part In his suc? cesses?he fought hard and . so hJs victories came to him. Fifty years from now his will be among the few really permanent names In the history of our war with Spain. ITS ADVANTAGES. Clinton Rogers Woodruff, Secretary of the National Municipal .League, in his annual municipal ' survey report, made the following summary this year of the advantages of commission gov? ernment for cities: It puts the emphasis on the good.uf the city, rather than on the interest of a party or candidate. It requires that municipal affairs | shall j-ncetve due consideration on their merits', without regard to irrel? evant questions, such as State or na? tional politics. It insists upon directness of nomina? tion, election ,md responsibility after election. It demands simplicity of electoral ami governmental machinery, the short ballot and responsiveness to the public will; It therefore encourages easy and Intelligent voting, checks partisan and factional domination by giving control to voters?If they wish to exercise lt it believes that thorough publicity Insures eifective control. It demands thai efficiency and merit shall be the sole basis or all appoint? ments in a democracy. | it demands concentration of author? ity nnd responsibility. In other words, commission govern? ment mean.- b'i.-:r.e.-s ami is business. If business men ran their concerns upon the same principles as those by which uldormanic government is oper? ated, they would be ruined?but what difference does It make how a city runs its business'.' Who cares' A picture of the Bouttiside Baptist i hurch of Birmingham is published In the News oi that city. It looks as If it had been copied in every detail after the Dt-igh Street Baptist Church I in this city. A Philadelphia office-seeking doma gogue sent to tho worklngmen of the olij ihii c?rd< "lr I am elected, come to the city hall to see me. No matter if you have grimy hands and faces and are wear? ing greasy overalls, I will be there to meet you and shake your hands'" When the men who are at work from ' A. M. to fi P.

A claims that It Is porfoctly correct to say when passing" either a pedcs trlan or a conveyance going In either direction, that "I passed such and Buoh a person or conveyance." B clalme that we should say when approachlug a person or vehicle, that "1 met" such and such a person or vehicle, and that passed should only be used when approaching and going by, from the rear. H. M. "Ships that pass In the night" Is a familiar quotation; part of a passage from Longfellow which Indicates clearly that the poet conceived the ships as passing each other wh'le heading in different dlreottons. Tho word "pass" by no means lmpl'es "to overtake, as we find In the Century Dictionary; U means to go by. ovor, around, beyond, through, eto." A pe? destrian might meet another without passing him. The proper expression where one wishes to .oonvey trie defi? nite meaning that he was going In tho same direction as the other person or conveyance would be "I overtook ami passed" such and such a person or conveyance. Again we have the fa? miliar term "passers by" applied to persons crossing each other in tho highways. In regard to either form of expression In dispute it would soeni that discussion will Indicate cases where one or tho other would bo nec? essary to oonvey the precise meaning Intended. But In general B's point Is not well taken. IS ANXIOUS TO AVOID CHARGE OF NEPOTISM BY LA MARQUISE DE KONTEN OY. PREMIER ASQUITH seems to be Just as anxious as the late Mr. Gladstone to avoid any charge of nepotism, and In tho same way that the Grand Old Man left his third son, Henry, to embark In a commercial career In India, where he made a for? tune for himself, and eventually be? coming the head of one of the most important flrmB of Calcutta, so is Pre? mier Asqulth sending out his son, Ar? thur, to take up a commercial career In the Argentine Republic, and tho young fellow has recently arrived at Buenos Ayres to assume a clerkship In the firm there of Franklin, Herrera & Co. It Is worth while calling attention to the fact, not only because It Is char? acteristic of Liberal statesmen In Eng? land, but also for the reason that the fact that he has a son engaged In business at Buenos Ayres, and expect? ing to make his career there, cannot fall to interest the British prime min? ister in a .yulte particular degree In the fortunes of the Argentine Repub? lic. Henry Gladstone was by no means the only son of the great Liberal lead- i er of the. nineteenth century who de- I rived no political advantage from his father's eminence, for Henry's oldest brother William, although he entere?] ! Parliament, never got beyond an un? paid lordship of the Treasury; while the clergyman brother, Instead of re? ceiving a bishopric, a deanery, or even the prebendary stall of canon of some cathedral, had to remain satisfied with the roctorshlp of the village church of Hawarden. Lord Malmesbury Is, like the half American Lord Vernon and so many other English peers, selling his estates In order .to escape the heavy fiscal burdens Imposed upon all landed prop? erty by the present Liberal govern? ment; and his well known country seat. Heron Court, one of the most beauti? ful places In Hampshire, as well as some 10,000 aorcs of land, has boen placed upon the market. Heron Court Is full of treasures, many of them col? lected by the first'Earl of Malmesbury. i The latter, so celebrated as a diplomat? ist, was for many years ambassador to the court of Catherine the Great, and author of the a-phorlsm that "the Briton who spends much of his time among strange nations and does not every time he visits his native land thunk God for being British, le un? worthy of the blessings of true liber? ty." Among the treasures at Heron Court are numerous relics of Nelson, also the table at one tlmo owned by Louis XIV. of France, upon which was signed tho treaty, or rather family compact, by which the French Bourbons secured the throne of Spain at tho end of the seventeenth century. It was the third Lord Malmesbury. granduncle of the present earl, who played so Important a role as foreign minister during the earlier portion of the reign of Queen Victoria, and whose Reminiscences; published a few years before his death, form one of the most amusing .histories of the Idiosyncrasies and peccadlloes of politicians and di? plomats during' the greater portion of the nineteenth century. As a boy of fifteen, he was blrdsnesting In the park of Heron Court when captured by smugglers, who at that time infested the district. They held him for ran? som, hut troated him so well that he always retained, even when In office, a very kind and charitable feeling for that class of offenders. The late earl, that is to say. tho father of the present peer, was quite the reverse of popular. Not long be? fore his death, his countess brought suit against him for Judicial separation, which at the last moment was arranged out of court, with a view of avoid? ing scandal. Lady Malmesbury's sons, as well as society, sided with her. and when, after her husband's death and the succession to the earldom of her son. the present peer, he brought her back to Heron Court, despite the testa? mentary Injunctions of his father, she was received with much rojolcing by all the tenantry on the estate, as well as by the neighboring county families. Lord Malmesbury is one of the very considerable number of twins among the British aristocracy, and owes his possession of the various honors and estates to ths fact that he arrived in the world Just a couple of minutes ahead of his brother, the Hon. Alex? ander Harris. Lord Malmesbury Is married to a daughter of Lord Cal thorpe, served In South Africa during the war, and did duty as private sec? retary to the Minister of the Colonies In Downing Street, as well as on the staff of the Governor of Now South Wales- His eldest son, nw five years old. bears the title of Viscount Harris, J and Is a godchild of the Kaiser, who, when staying at Oenernl Stuart Wort I ley's place In the south of England 1 four years ago, drove over to Heron Court to attend the christening.

HIb wife, who died some sixteen years ago. was the (daughter of Major John Humphreys, chief land agent In Ireland for the lato and the present Dukes of Abercorn; and It is because of the archbishop's close and intimate rela? tions with the present Duke of Hamil? ton, and with the entire Hamilton fami? ly, also as uncle of Rochfort i^ogulre, that in 1896. when preaching one Sun? day In Westminster Abbey, he deliver, cd from the pulpit a warm euloglum of the Jameson raid Into the Trans? vaal.

(Copyright, 1911, by the Brentwood Company) Voice of the People Mr. Easley'a Position. To the Editor of The Times-Dispatch: Sir,?In your report published to-day of the meeting of the penitentiary board, you say: . "The board was also In receipt of a communication from John ,C. Easley, former chairman of the board, in which he denied that he had made a statement to the same effect, in which he was quoted in a newspaper." Inasmuch as Mr. Easley sent no "communication" to the board further than a telephone message several days ago to Major James D. Patton. I would ask that you publish the following let? ter which Mr. Easley sent me to-day. I also beg that you print Mr. Patton's letter. CHARLES V. CARRINGTON. Dr. Charles V. Carrington, Richmond, Va.: My Dear Sir,?I have now -before me a copy of to-day's Times-Dispatch, to which you called my attention, and must say that It Is misleading as to my position with .reference to your re? election as surgeon at the peniten? tiary. Some week or ten days ago I was called on by a reporter for one of the afternoon papers, and expressed practically the same sentiments as those ascribed to Senator Herman In a later edition, although I knew noth? ing of Senator Herman's interview until I saw It In pritjt. In the same issue with Senator Harman's Interview, after stating his vjews and mine, the following language appeared In bold black type as emanating from me: "He thought that if the present board was actuated in its selection of a surgeon solely by a desire to choose the best qualified man for this office that the board could not fail to return Dr. Carrington." etc. I do not for a moment suppose that the reporter intended to misquote me, but I did not use this language, and, regarding It as offensive in Its appli? cation, I calltd up Major Patton on the phone and told him of the inter? view I had had with the reporter some days before, and that while I had ex? pressed the same sentiments as those I expressed by Senator Herman, I had ! not used the language which I con ! sidered offensive, and asked him to so state to the board. Candor and common fairness com? pel me to say that during the six years of my membership on the board, I never heard one word of adverse criticism of your professional skill or attention to duty, and the fact that the full hoard repeatedly appeared he fore the various legislative commltteos and urged an Increase In your salary because of your zeal and efficiency ought to he convincing evidence- Per? sonally I regard your removal as un? fortunate for the Inmates, and In the nature of a public calamity. You are at liberty to use this letter In any way that you may s?e fit. Very truly yours, JNO. C. EASLEY. Richmond, OctobeV 1. Riciunond.^Va., October 2. 1911. Dr. Charles V. Carrjngton. City: My Dear Doctor.?During all the time I have been connected with tho Board of Virginia Penitentiary, either as a member or now as chairman of the hoard, I have never heard the slightest criticism of your conduct or efficiency as surgeon.

You make a written report every week, which explains fully every? thing connected with the hospital and your work, and yon are checked up and O. K.'d to Saturday, September 30, 1911.
