Owing to the appearance simulta neously of three items of news relating to Morocco, that country lias again ? i ::;e a centre of deep Interest und expectancy. These items are the ubdi i itlon Of Sultan Mulal Ha lid, w'hlcjh his been definitely decided upon, if it is hot already taken Place; the call <>f General Eyautsy, the French resi? lient Governor, for 30,000 additional troops tu enable him to maintain or? der, ? i the statement that when the. ? between Spain and France' touching their respective spheres of ! : ? . ace In Morocco shall have been , <lsn?d, the former will enter the triple i tente, composed of France, Great 1 Russia. If Jt be true, as we nrc "assured, il it the abdicating Sultan and tho French authorities have reached ah ami ibte understanding rdgtirdlhg the j esslon, anj have agreed upon tea- , i i .- for ahdicatlon that will avert the il tiger Of native appeal to fanaticism, oh the ground that Mulal lias, bee'ii coerced, the first item is the Last important; l>ut is it true?

However, accepting the "assurance" ! on its face. In any event the call argues ' a most ominous condition of unrest ? tn< s the tribesmen and that the wot k of pacitlcatlon has virtually just be gun. To eliminate tho menace or fanatical uprising as the direct result Of Mulal Hafld's surrender of the sill- I tanate is to accentuate the danger of i the general slt?a??ri and the dlfllculty i of the task that Is still before the The importance, significance and , chief consideration in the third pleco'. of Information are compassed In the fact that Spain's entrance into the triple entente will bo another slip in the fnce of Germany and another coh Irl but ioh to the isolation Of Germany. ; Notwithstanding Spain Is a second class power, transformation of the triple Into a quadruple entente will! materially strengthen the existing com- ; bln'ation.. Necessarily and logically, especially will a satisfactory conven? tion between Spain and France on that Moroccan Issue mi an a Joint policy, administrative, political and military. 1 for the subjugation and development of: Morocco, which will constitute a fur? ther and increasingly potent obstacle t'i whatever designs and ambitions Germany may continue to cherish re-i spectlng the lund of the Moers and contiguous territory.

SOCIETY KIL.Lt Sentiment against capital punish-' ir.t.t is certainly and slowly increas? ing. This sentiment Is not so much the result of a reasoned and |< . . conviction against taking the life of mi Individual as it I? a deep and instinctive revulsion against the hor-' ror ? f the actual fact. Within a few days three cases have made men i" ';r,h deep within their souls to dis? cover upon what principles they has,.! ? ? new light upon the attitude of modern society towards what Is probably the gravest prerogative It assumes. In New York teven men were elec? trocuted on a single day.

Discussion its tu the advisability of dividing up the work of the Adminis? trative Board among its several ihorri iei'sis somewhat premature: That is a problem which must be str tightened out alter llie election, and not before it. Whether or not each member of the Administrative Hoard shall huvti as signed to him a department for the routine work, in which ho shall bo the executive head, but the policies of which the whole board shall a itcrinihc; depends entirely upon wh.it so:; of men ... . IcctCd by tho people to the boaru. Whether there .shall ho individual or collective administration of the various departments under the board turns utterly upon the nieh chosen. if the voters of Richmond wiii Judi? ciously discriminate between the can? didates and select live efficient and able administrators, doubtless wise policy will stieltest the desirability of dividing up tiic routltn - of the board so thut each member Will havo his particular department. Under sucli a system each member would special? ise in the work of li 1st department, be cotne thoroughly familiar With It and its needs, study progressive methods of Other cities in his department and become thoroughly expert as to his duplication of administration; dupll- j cation of time and duplication of en- i orgy would be lcppcd oft". The whole Administrativ.. Hoard would ha respon? sible, none the lbo's, for only routine: administrative work would be divided up. whi!?: the questions of policies and , jargt problems would have to be settled by the whole hoard, which would there? fore be individually and collectively re? sponsible (or every department. Such a system makes for expert admlnis trn Hon. If Rvo mediocre men. of no partlcu lar breadth of mind, efficiency and ability, are elected, then it would ho unwise to distribute the work of the Administrative Board, in such a case, In cacli department live heads would be preferable, for live heads would bo equivalent to it little more than one good head If Inefficient and Ignorant fficth arc chosen |0 administer the municipal business of Richmond. ii I ch an elected, they ought to to l prqblem coming up. Even at that, there are times when the heady of live demagogues put together do not con ['ho business of the people of Ricrf nd and their only business at this 10, Is to elect to the Administrative ard the five men best qualified to rform Its duties.

Is tu take the stump for the Third Term party on tin.- spiciilc ground that it, and it alone, can be trusted to stand firmly lor the right doctrine of conservation. That Is a rather amusing dcvelopmi :.\ for the conservation plank of the Hull Moose platform ?at put llat. on the fence, it ls said that Mr. Plncho.t. deluded like many others into believ? ing that the Bull Moose would stand for the ideal Instead of the "practi? cal,"! drafted an unrealricted conserva? tion plank, demanding In f ho most ringing manner centralized Federal ? control of all our unutilized national resources, but the Bull Moose re? wrote the plank to tho point of I emasculation. At any rate, the plank that was adopted Is far from what] I n:chot would like to have. The Hull' Moose w?a a very "practical"' man when he refashioned the Pinchot pro-l ! posnl and decided to mako due allow- \ unco for his Western supporters, who detest conservation because they want to seize forthwith the remaining forests and mineral and agricultural Wh.it 1^ the plank and what docs It mean? The platform resolves to! "protect thu nationcl forest? without hindering their legitimate use"; to "open" to "the genuine settler" "agricultural lands In the national forests," and to "base the public grazing lands under equitable pro? visions." These mealy generalities! mean nothing If they do not mean conciliation of the Impatient ex? ploiters of the Northwest. Nor does the Hull Moose conservation poll y cease there, for It Roes on with Velvet touch to treat of the rights of' States In conservation. "Natural re-' sources" ate mentioned as still ''under] Slate control." und then It Is urued; that they can be more "wisely con? trolled and Utilized If held." How "held?" By the Federal government? No, indeed, "held in the public hands."I That means everything ami it means! nothing, it was injected to placate the mountaineers and grazers who de? mand State control. The conservation plank Is Just like I the other planks of the Hull Moose j confession of flimflam, it is sup-i posed to formulate a definite and pro-! I gressivo policy, when In reality It is a I backbonelcsa and high-sounding re ! solve that means nothing more than; ia compromiso which satisfies every-1 I body, and which, therefore, stands fori stagnation. As a manipulator of the political pea and shells, the Bull iMoose is easily first. CITIES AMI COUNTIES MOTU ?F I ECTED.
