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'

Question of Two Fa as lug.

"Ships that pass In the night" Is a

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.

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.
