After a tenacious hold and a serious con
test between the seasons winter has finally
shade its exit. Spring-balmy, beautiful
lovely has made its appearance.
"Spring hangs her infant blossoms on
Rocked in the cradle of the western breeze."
Nature is clad in emerald, hue, refresh
ing to the eye, reinvigorating to the weary
body after a long, bitter winter.
With the poet whittier we can exclaim!
"Tis Spring time in the eastern hills,
Like torrents gush the Summer rills;
'I'l rough winters moss and dry dead leaves
'ile bladed grass revives and lives.
Pushes the mouldering waste away,
And glimpses to the April day."
It is asTennyson calls it, "the boyhcod
of the years", it is the season of flowers, and
song. and poetry, and love. It unbosoms every
grace, opens every beauty, turns every heart
gay, makes life alive in everything.
The lovely garments which -nature dons
awaken in the breasts of all pleasurable emo
tions. It lightens the mind, gladdens the
heart, strengthens, regenerates revivifies the
How perfect and grand is the work of
the creator. We cannot appreciate the won
derful structure in which we live. It is be
yond human comprehension. We stand in
awe while considering the magnificent and
complicated, yet faultless machinery of the
world: mighty in its conception, unerring in
its operation, sublime and beautiful in its de
sign. It makes man feel more and more as 1
be studies the matchless creations of an In
finite Ieing his wetness, his littleness, his 1
insignifcance. As the earthly traveler dur
ing his short Journey pauses in his mad, in
cessant, weary struggle, and contemplates,
the greatness of "nature and nature's God,"
he becom~ s appalled at life's reality, its aim
its purpose, its end. He bows to the great
truth: it is God's work. In so doing, how
ever, he must not lose sight of the patent fact
that all objects, animate and inanimate,
have their mission. They were placed here
for a purpose which each must carry out.
Let him not forget that man is his noblest
work, his mission the most serious and im
portant. He should so Uve that he may
prove that mind and heart are alive to Di-1
vine truths and that he is not unworthy of
the Divine Father, who unceasingly and
lovingly watches over his children on earth.
The Railroad companies of New Orleans 1
and their employees have at last settled their
differences, and thanks to good judgement
and second sober sense, peace reigns supreme
in our Southern metropolis. It is indeed a1
happy condition of affairs when employe and
employer agree and when each feels that the 1
interest of one is that of the other and when
the rule of "live and let live" is carried out to <
the letter. Labor and capital should rork a
to-gether: one cannot exist without the other. 1
In many States organized capital and t
trusts have disregarded the rights of the la- i
boring man and trampled underfoot prin- c
ciples of equity and justice, and strikes on t
part of the laborers were the inevitable con- .
We hope never to see any strikes in our a
State. Wehope to see harmony and peace t
prevail Every man should be willing at all p
times to make concessions, while maintaining a
his rightsandthis we are glad to see has b
If differenoes ever arise here we hope to r
see them settled satisfactorily to all con- tl
The amicable adjustment of the trouble n
an New Orleans is a subject of congratula- n
tions all over the State. el

Superintendent of Public Education A. D. tl

thus coJ!liuriints on the attitude of the Prt.ei
dent on the reciprocity tariff with Cuba:
S '-Forty-nine republican congresmen have
-promised and agreed to vote against tariff
concessionts to Cuba. If they hold out in
Sthis determination they will be able by join
ing the democrats and co-operating in this
- measure. to defeat the administration. Mr.
Ro!Roosevelt is weded to tariff concessions and
,. he is using all the power of his high office to
bring it about. and it would serve him right
- if a bold and determined faction of his party
was to frustrate him in his unanmerican ideas.
SFor trying, to help the ungrateful Cubans at
4" the cost~ and almost financial ruin of his own
- cGjiotrymen he will be made to feel the

The Probate Court of the Dictric-t of
!' Columbia is badly in need of the services of
a Solomon. An estate valued at $200.000 is
involved in the question the court has been
n asked to answer. The question is raised by
the will of the mother of twins, who was
twice married, leaving three children by her
first husband and the aforesaid twins. She
made a will before the birth of the twins,
leaving her estate to her children by her first
husband, but providing that should another
child be born to her it should be entitled to
one-fourth interest in her personal .estate.
Then the twine were born, and the mother
died without changing the will. Now, the
court is asked to decide whether only one of
I the twins is entitled to one-fourth the estate,
i and if so. which one, and what will be the
t share of the other. Or whether the one-'
fourth interest should be divided equally by
the twins. Wouldn't you .like to have to
' decide the case l

President Roosevelt has before him a
good prospect of resembling his dihtinguished
predecessor, Grover Cleveland, by splitting
The President, in the expression of his
strong prejudice against Admiral Schley, of
• the navy, and Lieutenant General Miles, of
the army, has already antagonized some,
promineHt members of the Republican party,
and his determined stand in favor of a reduc
tion of the tariff on Cuban products has serv-'
ed to estrange some others.
But the straw that promises to break the !
' camel's back of bartisan patience is his ap
t pointment of Democrats to office in the place
of Republicans. It appears that the Presi
dent, to use a phrase that has been adopted
to characterize the situation, is in a deadlock
Swith Senators from a number of States, who
are seeking to have the incumbents of re

Republicans who, in the judgment of the
SSenators, have won recognition because of
their service to the party.

one of the present nineteen occupants, be

President Roosevelt can secure the same
results by a persistent course of depriving' .
the politicians of their power to hand out pa
tronage. A political boss who has no places
nor perquisites at his disposal is simply a!
nonentitty, and to deprive them of their pow
er is an unpardonable sin in the Presidgnt.
Mr. Roosevelt, if he wants to be re-elected,
would do well to take warning in time and
throw himself into the arms of the political
