The best wish for the Princeton and Yale football players, who
are on edge for their great encounter to-morrow, is that they will
make as fair and manly a fight as was waged through to an even
finish in Cambridge last Saturday.
Secretary Bliss reports a probable increase in the cost of pen
sions for next year of $5,000,000 to $7,000,000, though the cost this
year is above $140,000,000. Nearly a third of a century after the
close of the war he finds 200,000 pension claims awaiting action —
a number greater than the largest army actually put into battle
during the war. So much |for reckless, demagogic legislation,
seeking votes with the most demoralizing of bribes—a pension bait.
It is a question in the minds of those most seriously interested ;
whether or not the passage at this time of the anti-silver resolution
such as that of the Delaware Bankers' Association is in any way
useful. The free coinage issue is not dead and perhaps is not dy
ing, but to fight it when it is not making any particular stir, is
merely to revive what many hope will be a dead political question
before the next campaign. Those who arc opposed to the free coin
age of silver may, therefore, do well to consider the advantage
raising the question themselves, when no one else is raising it.
JlTST a week ago the United States Court of Appeals at St. Louis
held that a boycott by labor against capital is a criminal conspiracy.
Now an Illinois State Court at Chicago has decided that a "black
listing" by capital against labor is equally unlawful, and has
awarded a "blacklisted" laborer $21,666.33 damages. If the boy
cott were sound in law, then the blacklist would also be sound,
But these courts, dealing out even justice, have declared the truth
that blacklist and boycott are equally odious, equally hostile to
democratic institutions and ideas. It is fortunate that these two
decisions came so closely together. The object-lesson they present
will not be lost upon either.labor or capital.

enough. The citizens of the United States have a right to know

But the situation is not an

calculated to exalt her standing as a member of the American fam

they poured some io,ooo shots, it was estimated, into a camp from
the adjacent hills, killing a number of men and animals. The Britisli
device for revealing the presence of the enemy is to build bonfires
some distance off from their camps at night, or burn flashlights not
unlike the so-called "Roman candles - " When the enemy's po
it is revealed
sition is at a distance of one or two thousand yards
by means of "star shells," or rockets, which illuminate a wide area
for a few seconds. The latter method is sometimes employed if a
rush is expected, even when the enemy is supposed to be compara
tively near. When the Patliians—a general name
Orakzais and other tribes of the Maidan region—are once located by

General Lockart's army, it may be added, reached Tirah, its object

Many of the Orakzais and some of the Afridis, though unable to
fight a pitched battle, keep up a guerrilla warfare, attacking con
voys, cutting off foraging parties and firing into the British camps
or the Afri-lis,
at night. They have long-range rifles and are good shots.
The proportion of officers picked off has been very large.
