The Globe disavows any deep con
cern In the result of the speakership con
test. It has watched the various phases
of It with more or less of interest, and
has sympathized more or less deeply
with the statesmen whose budding ambi
tions were so ruthlessly chilled in th«
strong wind which blew over the wide
prairies of lowa. But there is one candi
date for the second office in our federal
system whose high qualifications seem
strangely to have been greatly over
looked. He is from the great state of
Missouri, and he is one of a stirring mi
nority of three on the delegation. His
name is Joy. His candidacy, in the light
of his most recent declaration, may well
be accounted a thing of beauty and a
Joy forever.
Mr. Joy, as these columns have duly
announced, took pains to declare to a
press representative that he, too, was a
candidate, *nd had the entire Republican
delegation from Missouri behind him.
He thought that Candidate Hopkins had
been unwise In withdrawing, as it was
not at all clear what the other candi
dates. Mr. Joy included, might do, since
the field was to free for the running of an
altogether available man—such a man,
no doubt, as Mr. Joy conceded himself
to be.
Whereupon this joyous candidate pro
ceeds to unfold himself after this fash
ion: "You can say that I will not with
draw until the last horn blows. There
are two Republicans in the Missouri del
egation beside myself, and I do not see
•why v. re shouldn't hold the balance of
power and get some good chairmanships
by withdrawing at the proper time."
Of what variety the last horn Is to
which this Missouri statesman refers,
he does not make quite clear. It may
be a horn of the liquid variety, or it may
be- one of the horns of the dilemma which
he limls himself in between his two am
bitions Kei>"blican colleagues. It surely
cannot have reference to the horn of
Gabriel, .since when that fateful instru
ment sounds for Joy there will be no
more chairmanships in sight in this vale
uf tears, and the "good" chairmanships
which the Republican delegation from
Missouri, including Mr. Joy, are in pur
suit of will have ceased to possess that
measure of attractiveness which such
points of vantage usually possess for the
Republican brother of strict reforming
The world is probably fated to remain
unconcerned as to just the particular
constituency of Missouri which gave this
grcal man to the world of congressional
life. Thut it is unique among Missouri
constituencies goes without saying. That
Joy is a far-sighted and altogether ex
aHefl statesman he has made plain by his
own suge announcement. But if ever that
particular Missouri constituency is called
on again to meet the contingency of
»er.rilng him back to the seat which he
now adorns, It might with some ad
vantages to the world reflect on the
depths of wisdom which are to be found
In that well-known line by Byron:
•There Is not a Joy the world can give
like that it takes away."
According to the distinguished senator
from Ohio, the yuide to the administration
and tho great exemplar of the power of
concentration in politics and industrial
life, the trust movement docs not rep
resent a political issue. Mr. Hanna doubts'
not that the question of trusts will be
dealt with by both political parties, and in
a manner to subserve the interests of the
whole people But the question, in his
estimation, is In no sense a political one.
So, too, with the matter of imperial
ism. Mr. Hanna regards It as a hard
Trailer to understand how the Democrat
ic party can make an ibssue out of lm
porialisiu. Like the true-blue imperialist
that he Is, Mr. Hanna is unfavorably dis
posed toward withdrawing the American
flag from any point from which it has
waved. Like all pure-minded patriots of
his type, the Ohio senator is devotedly
attached to the flag. To the proposal to
lower it In the Philippines he says: "No—
positively no—emphatically no!"
The complement of this statesman's
views is that there is no issuy on which
the Democracy can possibly make a flght
but the Issue of free silver at 16 to 1.
There is an Issue which, according to
Senator Hanna, is, pure and simple, po
litical. Some might regard it .is a finan
cial issue, as the trust might be regarded
as an Industrial and economic Question,
or as the question of imperialism might
be looked on as relating to the perma
nence of accepted understandings of tho
scope and purpose of free government on
this continent. But the issue of silver is,
pure and simple, a political Issue, and
the only one which Is destined to receive
any consideration on the part of the
American people in 1900.
In the din of uncomplimentary refer
ences to the gentleman from Ohio no one
ha 3 ever heard the slightest intimation
that Senator Hanna was a fool, or that
he wai not a very skillful politician, es
pecially when "the resources of civiliza
tion" are at his disposal in tho generous
degree which he is understood to regard
as needful to success. His forecast of the
political situation of 1900 is thertfore wor
thy of more than passing attention. Dem
ocrats may learn something by consid
eration of it. As the senator played no
inconsiderable part in bringing the great
issues of the trusts and imperialism to
the front, he can of course discover noth
ing in either condition which should call
for any serious controversy among tho
people as to their perpetuation.
When Senator Hanna returns from
France some months hence, entirely
cured of his rheumatism, as we sincere- i
ly hope he will, he Is likely to discover
that those two Important considerations
of trusts and imperialism occupy a
place quite as Important in the minds of
the American people as political issues as
that which he now accords to the question
of silver.
The late lamented Ward McAllister was
the high authority through > which the
American people have been able to es
tablish the exact limit In numbers to the
representatives of the real pure-blood
American aristocracy. Not all the glided
youth of society by any means could be
regarded as belonging to the charmed
four hundred. The remainder of them
had to be content with revolving on the
outskirts of this charmed circle. This lat
ter, we believe, represented the social
status of the junior members of the Gould
household at the time of the demise of the
arbiter of American social ton. But it
has been reserved for at least one of the
offspring of the opulent Jay Gould to
achieve a measure of social distinction
which must harrow the souls of the four
hundred with envy. She now belongs*not
only to the jeunesse doree, but to the
jeunesse royale. Nor is she a member
alone. She is a leader of the Young Roy
alist party of France, and has, more
over, developed a military genius in be
half of royalty which, while it may not
eventually evolve into that resplendent
typ9 so eloquently portrayed by Arch
bishop Ireland in the cathedral of Or
leans, is not unlikely to secure her at
least the eminence of a matron, if not a
maid, of honor when once more the
French people have restored a Bourbon,
an Orleans or a Bonaparte to the throne
of his ancestors.
"When the four hundred of New York
read the thrilling details of that scene at
the Auteull race course in which the
former Miss Anna Gould so valiantly led
the forces of the Young Royalists march
ing up and down the lawn, crying at the
top of her voice, "Vive l'armee!" while her
brother-in-law was engaged in the highly
patriotic proceeding, from the French
point of view, of breaking his jewel-head
ed cane over the head of a policeman,
there will doubtless dawn upon them vis
ions of social eminence which even the
throbbing brain of McAllister could not
conceive of.
President Loubet will doubtless take
notice that the representative of the
American aristocracy within his domin
ions has declared against revision and in
favor of the army, and that there are
still left full four hundred of her kind
who, if ever the crisis is reached
which may restore the French monarchy,
are ready to chai-ge to the onset on be
half of royalty in a manner which will
entirely overshadow that charge of the
gallant six hundred of which a cer
tain poet sang. Led by the Comtesse de
Castellane there are possibilities of fame
and social distinction for this band which
this wretched republic holds no possibility
of. With the entire four hundred landed on
French soil, Dreyfus might be securely
locked in the fastnesses of Devil's island
never to see the face of civilization again,
Emil Zola be condemned to herd all his
remaining days with the most obnoxious
of his own characters, Dv Paty de Clam
be released from durance vile and an end
be brought forever to the enforced exile
of that prince of patriots and good fel
lows, the Count Esterhazy.
Americans as a rule are not In favor of
the re-establishment of the French em
pire, but in view of all that has been
achieved by their countrywoman, the late
Mlys Gould, there is but little doubt that,
emulating the spirit of sacrifice which
led Artemus Ward to send all his wife's
relations to the war, they would consent
to have their noble four hundred en
rolled at any moment in the cause of
which the Comtesse de Castellane is now
the recognized leader in France.
Here is what one may expect from an
anti-trust plank in the next national
Republican platform. The Mark Han
na Republican convention at Columbus,

form. Then it turned around and de
feated for renomination Attorney Gen
eral Monnett, who has been enforcing
the state anti-trust law against the
Standard Oil company.
In his inaugural address President Mc-
Kinley said: "Reform in the civil servlca

Because McKlnley blundered, the best
young blood of the country must fight
out the Filipino war to the bitter end.
But will this country permit Mr. Mc-
Klnley to blunder through four years of
a second term?
The people who have profited the most
by Mr. McKlnley's recent civil service
order are Boss Hanna, Boss Quay and
Bess Platt. And the motto still holds
good, "A man is known by the company
he keeps."

There is an old lrlshirian in the city
who enjoys the distinction of having been,
in days gone by, valet to' Lord Marlbor
ough. From this high estate he has come
to be a "man of all work" in a down
town boarding house in ihe land of the
free. Sometimes he grows reminiscent
and then rivals a trashy novel in his
tales of dukes and duchesses, lords and
ladies of the realm. He never fails to
wind up with, "An' sura, there was a
toime when Moike was as good as the
bist of them." Aside from attending to
the furnace and grounds, he performs the
very enviable duty of answering the door
bell to admit such of the boarders as
happen to forget their latch keys when
going out in the evening. There is a
lady at the house who one night went out
with a friend to the theater. Mike, who
usually- retires at an early hour, was
awakened by a loud peal of the door bell.
He arose, dressed, and opened the door,
when the young woman sailed by him and
up stairs without a word.
He retired, grumbling under his breath,
"Not even a 'thank you' did she give me
for my trouble."
A few nights afterward the same per
formance was repeated. Mike was en
joying happy dreams of the "land beyant
the sea," when the sharp ringing of the
bell brought him back to glorious Amer
ica, and he again flew to the door. Who
Wa^ there but the young woman so chary
with her thanks. Again she came in and
was about to pass the faithful door tend
er in silence, when Mike, drawing him
self to his full height, said, with Imperi
ous dignity, "Thank you, miss,", and as
her footsteps died away, "I'll teach her
politeness," he added.
It was nearly a week later when he was
again reused to open the door for her.
Scarcely had he admitted her when she
smiled and said, sweetly, "Thank you,
very much, Mike. I'm very sorry to have
troubled you."
, "Arrah, she can learn after all," he
said as he sought his downy couch.
I was reminded last week of Mike's
method of teaching the small courtesies.
Coming up a crowded street one day on
my wheel a pretty girl dressed In a fault
less spring suit suddenly crossed In front
01 me. I slackened speed, but could not
stop until it was too late, and bumped
heavily against her making an ugly,
dirty stripe on her pretty skirt. She
had not seen me coming, and I wonder
that the force of the collision did not
kneck her down. I at once dismounted
and was just collecting my wits to apolo
gize when she said earnestly, "I beg your
pardon," and at once hurried off.
I think I stood there all of two minutes
recovering from the rirst shock of sur
prise her words gave me, and ever since
I have wondered what manner of girl
sho was who could apologize for being
the victim in a bicycle encounter.
There is a girl in town who Is bright
and pretty and very lovable, but she has
one affectation which amounts to a

desire to exhibit her knewledge, espe

truth is, she has never studied French
in her life, but has picked up phrases
here and there which she trots out op
portunely and otherwise. It is much
easier to write such things than to use

At an assemblage of noted men a year
or two ago, a lawyer who conducts the
legal business of a great railway system
tried to "guy the parson," in the person
of the late Bishop Williams, of Connecti
cut, by malicious quizzing. At lust he
3aid: "Why don't you get thosa railway
managers to give you a pass over their

he had begun to figure up tho expense
became doubtful of the society's ability

a consultation with the director of tho
chorus the latter gentlemtn said to the
leader of the orchestra, who was a pro

occasions of its kind, with its sentiment
of school life, sweet girl students and
large bouquets from an appreciative au
dience. But the class day exercises at
Macalester last night were distinctively
the most successful in many respects of
any that has ever been held within the
cherished walls of the Presbyterian,, In
stitution. The college this year gradu
ates the largest class In its history, with
a larger precentage who will follow the
The programme was opened with a se
lection by the college orchestra, followed
by a historical sketch of the class of 1899
by Miss Almira Lewis. The class was
not, she said, the finished product, as it
would not be finished until life's Journey
was run. She gave a briefer history of
the record of every member of the class,
how some of them had attained distinc
tion as public officials by holding the
very important positions pf judge of elec
tion and dog catcher. Some had become
proficient as bottle washers, and to mar
riageable'misses they were highly com
mended. The paper was replete with in
teresting incidents of college life.
The greater part of the evening* was
taken up with the class play, entitled
"After Commencement." The play dealt
with the trials and mishaps of four Mac
alester graduates while on a camping
trip. George Curtis, the class treasurer,
was falsely accused of appropriating col
lege money, and it was not until he made
his apearance in the camp, disguised as
a< ttamp. that he was cleared of the
charge and the real culprit apprehended.
The theft of the money was first an
nounced through the G1 ob c and caused
a profound sensation in college circles "
Paul Doeltz essayed the role of Jrtf*
Armstrong, a Globe reporter, and he
secured a "scoop" on the "oldest and
dryest," which came out a day later with
their stale story. The plot furnished a
vehicle for some very clever specialty
work, and the boya kept the audience in
a state of merriment during the progress
of the play. The following had speaking
parts: Bert Travis, Elmer Smits, Walter

OTTAWA, On June s.—ln the house of
commons today Sir Wilfred .Laurier pre
sented the protocol of the Anglo-Ameri
can conference on the Alaskan boundary
question. There is nothing in what the
premier read to the house which was not
covered by the cables on the subject.
From the discussion which followed the
presentation of the document It was ap
parent that the opinion was universal
in the house that the British commission
era had done the right thing in refusing
to continue the work of the commission
until the boundary question was settled,
and also in refusing .to accept the propo
sition for arbitration made by tho Unit-'
ed states. Nothing less than what the
British commisisoners .;; proposed would
have been satisfactory, to Canada. -

Admiral Dewer l» Readr for the
Trip to America.
HONG KONG, June s.—Admiral Dewey
left the Peak hotel and returned to the
Olympla yesterday. This morning he
paid farewell calls to the governor, Gen.
Gascelgne and the commanders of the
warships in the harbor.
Admiral Dewey's health has been con
siderably benefited by his residence at
the Peak. He has refused all social in
vitations and has taken a perfect rest.
He appears somewhat haggard from the
effects of the continual strain he has
been under and of the climate.
The Olympic will sail at 4 o'clock to
morrow afternoon, but Admiral Dewey
will not give a farewell dinner, nor will
he accept one. It is hoped that the quiet
change and the voyage will quite re
store him to health by the time he
reaches New York. The details of the
ports at which he will call are still un
decided, but it is probable that stops will
be madj at Singapore and Colombo. The
admirar seems anxious to avoid all dis
play and merely to seek rest. His officers
and crew are elated at the prospect of
a return home.

upon by the committees. Material from
which farming implements are manufac
tured has increased in value to a corre
sponding amount.
(iovernor of Texas Call* for a Con-
fereaoe of State Kxecutlvea.
AUSTIN, Tex., June s.—The governor
today mailed the following communlca-
tiou to the governors of the several states
and territories of the Union:
Austin, Tex., June 5. 1899.—Dear Sir:
After much reflecting I have concluded
that it would not be improper for me to
suggest that a conference of the Kovern
ors and attorney generals of the several
staes and territories be held to consider
the effect which the formation of trusts
is having upon ihe country and, if possi
ble, to agree upon a character of legisla
tion that would not only force those now
in existence into dissolution, but would
also prevent their further creation. I am
firmly of the opinion that if as many a.s
twenty states can be induced to adopt a
uniform policy in refernce to this gen
erally admitted evil and will enforce such
policy with vigor, that relief will surely
and quickly follow. It cannot be doubted
that in this matter state legislation la
necessary, and that uniformity in the way
of enforcement of legislation is indlspen
sible. I have, therefore, to respectfully
suggest to your excellency and to the at
torney general of your state, that a con
ference to consist of the governors and
attorney generals of such states and ter
ritories a3 may see proper to attend be
held at St. Louis on Wednesday the 20th
day of September, 1899, for the purpose of
taking such action as may be deemed
proper respecting the subject mater of
this communication. An early reply, ad
vising me of your views and Intentions, la
requested. I have the honr to be. Very
respectfully. —John D. Sayers.
