Tho man who held up Hector's res taurant in Chicago, and in turn was held up by throe yeggs and relieved of Ids boodle of $3,300 puts to rout that old adage that there is honor even among thieves. The authoritative report that James Whitoomb Riley's health Is im proving will be welcome news to the numerous and widely scattered admirers of one t-f the truest and tendcrest American poets. The expectation in Washington re parding the stand which the Senate will take regarding tho Canidian re ciprocity treaty seems to have chang ed. At first tho correspondents unit ed In assurance that tho measure Mould be defeated. Now the 11,. rat. have come into I. no anU it jrows apparent that tho Republican forces in the Senate are reluctant to take the responsibility for defeating a meas ure so gre-itly favored by a lare sec tion of the public, and so obviously for the benoiit of tho country. Th- president, it is said, now feels confi dent that tho treaty will receive tho support of the R -publican nat'-rs generally. It is the part of wibirn for the senators to take this eursc. If Governor -!orn b.is his way the legislature will grant few appropria tions t. state institutions for new .building-, or ot'n-r extras this s. ssi-m. Ho wants appropriations of ell kind out to the bone -jo that the state can get on its i'e, t fin in. Lilly a'-rain. Tin Is the fight eoii-sc for tin MVi Tllof to t.ike. Tho ih :i i which Michigan has faced f.-r number of years rnn in winid out only by holding down ix liindituris to the smallest amount possible There is a disposition on tho part of the legislature to view the matter in the satin- light and the bulgit f-.r tin- maintenance of insti tutions is llk'-ly this time to be the smallest in years. ARMY SERVICE NO DISCRACE. The model law which it is proposed that mngriss pass for the Idstrkt of Columbia, making- disc riiiiin.. tlcn against the 1,'nited state uniform a Vunlshablo offense, Is of less interest to Michigan than to other state;,, nut it is an evcllont measure and should bo adopted. The only urjrilng thing in connection with it is that it should 1k n-c-csary. That it is admits of llttlo question, proprietors of eastern daiK-o balls and places of aniuserni nt have fshown. by ejecting men merely be -a use they wore their country's uni form, that legal measures to enforce respect for the garb of the soldier and .sailor are necessary. They should be Supplied. It is rw disgrace to serve the f idted Ftatfs in cither the army or the navy. On the rontrary to do o should be a matter of pride. Roth branches of the fighting servli o are composed n tin- whole of clean, able men. The standard has been steadily ral-'cd. If th- Idea ever existed that Hther laanch was suited to receive the scum from the country it has long since been dissipated. Care Is taken In the felectlon of the men who nro to serve their country and they must conform to a reasonable high standard of In telligence and decency. The need of such a law as Is pro posed for the IMstrlct of Columbia doei not exist here. We have United State , ld!er quartered in the state.
