The single faxit that the Attorney Ctoaoral naa resigned calls for no com ment beyond that which presents a lull and cordial recognition of his Uong, valuable and unstinted services to the government and people. This comment will le made hereafter. It la a most unfortunate incident that bs peremptorily demanded an ac ceptance of his resignation for a long lime in President Dole's hands, be cause of an attack upon himself and upon Mr. Dole iby a member of the Kxocutive Council. We cannot state, because we are not fully informed of, the reasons which caused this attack. There must have bem, of course, some strong provoca tion ithat influenced this "wheel-horse" of the government to suddenly refuse to pull any longer -with his fellows. . The only public report on the details of any differences in the Cabinet' is that which appeared several days eince in an evening journal, contain ing an interview with one of Mr. Ta mon's intimates, and in which a dra matic ecene in the Executive chamber was described, apparently "by author Sty," and in which Mr. Damon repre senting Gxodness,"denounced IMr. .Dole, as representing Wickedness. The cor rectness of the description i3 reaffirm ed by the journal that published it. A a Mr. Damon does not contradict dt, it may he assumed that he for some good reason endorses the correctness of the account. Even if he does not usually "notice newspaper stories," his omission to notice this story, under the circumstances of its -puibli cation, permits and really forces the conclu sion that he endorses it. Neither President Tole nor Mr. Smith can contradict the statements made without precipitating that most irrita ting -lamd useless of all controversies, that of the newspaper. We have a suspicion that the report of "that stirring scene in the Executive chamber, during which President Dole displayed very low morals, and Min ister Damon manifested very high morals, Was "doctored" somewhere and by somebody, in order to "beat Bole" in the assaults made upon him iby Mr. Sewall and his friends. The vent gives .Mr. Se wall's organ great delight. If it was "doctored" by some unscrupulous hand, Minister Damon should so state. It is not an uncom mon event for Cabinet (Ministers to correct statements which really mis lead the public. If, however, it is true that Minister Damon was forced to disinfect. Presi dent Dole's moral mature, "which ap pears, if the statements are correct, to have been infesxed with microbes of sin, it must ;be sincerely regretted that after so long a period of service Mr. Damon 'has found that his old col leagues are unworthy of trust. In this belief, he may shake hands cordially with Mr. (Sewall. How the idols fall! No one knows more about the virtues and faults of his colleagues than Mr. Damon. He has himself done long, faithful and most valuable services for the people. He is entitled to their last ing gratitude and respect. The 'Ad- vprfisw cannot nermit any one to claim a larger appreciation of those cervices. If, in the discharge of his duty as a public maa and responsible piricer, lie must denounce his old col leagues and expose their .true charac ter as intriguers, and self fish men, It is to be profoundly regretted . that he is their "executioner." Chief Justice Shaw of Massachusetts said the most painful moment of his life occurred, when he sentenced his old college friend, Prof. Avebster, to be hung for murder. It is in the discharge of duty under painful circumstances that in dicates inflexible strength of character. sician hir-self, had provided C r" which at once became noted for Its excellence.. vvnin three months after he had finished it, the orders came, direct ing him to remove to a small town in Missouri, and take charge of a parish there. The cause of his removal was hi3 dangerous popularity, and it.-i pos sible effect on Church discipline. He left at once. He was asked if he re gretted th.it he hud been ordered to leave. He replied: "No; I am part of the machinery of a great institution. The individual counts for nothing in ita plans. My thought is only for its growth and grandeur ana success. I have none for myself. I shall be as contented in the woods of Missouri as I am here. I allow myself to regret nothing. I am indeed human, but I am trained to follow the Cross, and wherever it is, and I can look upon it, I am supreme ly satisfied." Devotion of this kind is, however, secured at the sacrifice of the best human relations. It makes missions successful,' if the word success is used in ita narrow sense. 'Men, like these passing Fathers, are the agents who firmly establish the Catholic missions in the remotest parts of the earth. They may be wrong theologically. They are generally right practically. THE PASSIM HOUR. The oratorio concert to be given next week should open the way for a steady series of such musical events. The local Brad street's fails in the latest issue ito give the customary foot note in effect that collections are diffi cult. Reports by officials of the Board of Immigration are not lengthy or la bored, though they tell a good deal about labor. It has been noticed that the tug Eleu sometimes grunts. But, "honest Injun," the captain, engineer and crew mem bers serve vigils that are not simply long. They are interminable. , To find a highly accomplished pianist wearing the uniform of an enlisted man in the U. S. A. is cumulative evidence on the point that the personnel of the 1 land and sea forces of Uncle Sam is simply unrivalled. All should take a good look at the ittle U.

Aguinaldo may soon be in the posi tion 01 negotiating for exchange of himself instead of demanding millions or a few hundred Spanish prisoners. The 'table will soon he turned and Aguinaldo will be under it. The announcement from Europe that monarchy is on its last legs in Spain is not given a great deal of prominence n the American papers. It is not in MEN WHO ESTABLISH MISSIONS. The words of Father Guillen, one of the priests from the Philippines, as they appeared in an interview with him, published in our issue Wednes day, reveal the power of the Roman Church, and the pathetic side of the lives of its apostles. "We are going to (South and Central America to con tinue our life work as missionaries. This father, after a residence of twenty-five years in the Philippines, abandons his residence, his friends, drops the thread of his life in Manila, and takes it up in the South American continent. The organization of the Roman Church so orders it. Its source of power lies in its equipment of a trained army of disciples always ready to move without "scrip" or baggage. A Father in one of the Eastern cities, after ten years of labor, sue ceeded in erecting a magnificent church. Its cost exceeded $500,000. He had secured the funds which built it.
