Ii BtaouM not matter to U3 what the c -
tituUQ el any other nation may be either
absolutely or relatively a? to others, so
loud a.i It Is not Irreconcilable with the
' ; tire freedom of Chinese port.-;. We are

nation has, ostensibly at least, if th" rep
resentations of the state department a:e>
of their lace value, already declare! iis
willingness that there should be free ac
cess to Chinese ports accorded to our
shipping. But whatever the diplomatic
significance may he of the statements re

Admiral Dewey suggests, to make it
]>;<ui> to the European nations that, what
ever political changes may be wrought
In the affairs of the Chinese empire, they
must conform to American rights and
Americ in Interests.
li si.lent McKinley is lust at this time
making a great ado about the determina
tion of the United States not to interfere
in any way with the situation in China.
There have been a good many declara
tions of intention made by the president
from time to lime in the p;ist three years
vyhich have not been strictly adhered to,
as the event has shown, in this case,
however, the country is very clear that
nothing short of a diplomatic blunder,
equivalent in operation to a crime, can
c this country to take any attitude
in !he present situation which will bind
us to any course of conduct not con
it with the one demand, of absolute
equality with all other nations whatever
in 111.■ trade of the Chinese empire.
PRICKING A BUBBLES.
Mr. Arthur Keen, of Birmingham, Kng
land, who, according to all reports, is
a mighty man in English finance and in
dustry, is quoted as having made a re
markable statement within a day or two.
It must at least sound remarkable to
many Americans who have of late been
possessing themselves securely of the
Idea that we are about to take control
of Hie trade of thi world. He has char
acterized as "rot, rubbish, nonsense" all
statements to the effect that American
competition 13 gong in anywise to in
juriously affect the iron industries of lha
United Kingdom.
Now, it Is upon this eott of assurance
that the people of the United States have
been fed for some time past, and fed
very liberally. Our manufacturers of
iron have been able to get a few contracts
for structural work in South Africa
;i!nl one or two other out-of-the-way
places. We have been able, too, by rea
son of advantageous geographical situa
tion and the wide experience which Am
erican manufacturers have in the pe
culiar productions needed, to get a good
share of the trade in material used In
railroad buifding and equipment away
out in Manchuria; but beyond these in
stancgjjj of successful American opera
tlona it would be. hunt 10. tell on what
basis of fact rests the immense super
strii'l urt- of. political brag and puffery
which .Mr. Keen has so ruthlessly demol
ished.
Nn doubt it will matc-.-ally strengthen
the hold which ih<* protectionist scheme
still has on the popular fancy to have
it understood that we are not only able
to shut out all foreign competition from
our own markets, but are also able to
force the hands of foreign manufacturers
In their own markets. That is, no doubt,
the motive of all the blatherskite state
ments that have been current; and it is
gratifying, even at this late day, that
something has been sssa by one fully
qualified to speak which enables us to
see what an exhibition we have been
making of ourselves by our claims in this
regard.
The people of the United States are
paying a huge bounty to their iron and
steel manufacturers. The recent revela
tions in the Frick-Carnegie law suit show
just what that bounty means for the
concern, which has a virtual control over
the iron a,nd steel manufacturing Indus
try of this country. They show the or
igin of Mr. Carnegie's philanthropy. They
show that that commodity is a highly
protected production. They help to make
plain what the trusts will represent In
tho industrial and social life of the coun
try after a time, and furnish an adequate
reason for the strenuous opposition
which has been made by the anti-trust
Republican brethren of the administra
tion against the proposal to take the
tariff off trust commodities.
Mr. Arthur Keen, of Birmingham, Eng
land, has at least done his share In the
work, which is progressing quite satis
factorily, of bringing home to the Ameri
can people the full significance of main
taining a prohibitive customs tariff un
der existing: conditions.
THE REAL TROUBLE WITH THE
BOOTH.
Some people in the Southern states are
complaining that there is no tidal wave
of immigration to the South nor any im
mediate prospect of an Influx of immi
grants. They seem to blame the people
of the North for the failure of immigra
tion, to a great extent, and think the
Northerners misunderstand and misrep
resent the South and the Southerners.
The chief misrepresentations complained
of are that the Southern white treats the
negro unfairly, and even cruelly; that
life is not respected in the South as It
ought to be, and that the Southeine-.s
hate the people of ihe North.
It Is not improbable that many North
ern people are under the Impression that
the life of a colored person in the South
is not altogether a happy one; and that
there is a too ht»-ty resort to lethal weap
ons «>von by distinguished citizens in
the settlement of disputes. Some North
ern neonle may also believe that some
Southerners are not partial to the peo
p'.e of the North. But these impressions,
win ;her or not they have a good founda
tion, are not the real cause for the "aloof
of the Immigrant to the Southern
The real cause or the distaste of the
homeseeker for the Southern states Is
really the racial troubles between the
whiles ami the blacks. The negro ques
tion is at the root of all the troubles
that have ever afllicted the Southern
states and that afflict them today. When
thai question is settled finally, and set
tled In justice and equity both to white
and black alike, then the South may ex
pect t<> see the ttde of immigration turn
its way, but net until then. People who
emigrate are not attracted to troubled
tommujritlfli. 3?faey seek peaceful and
THE ST. PAUL GLOB^, OATCRDAY, JCNK 16, 1900
quiet settled regions, or, they seek the
wilderness, and they will not regard
with favor any state or territory where,
on their arrival, they would be invested
with a full set of ready-made troubles of
the mosL complex kind.
SOUND DOCTKIXB.
The public conduct of Comptroller Color,
of New York, has not commended itself
to the general intelligence, any more than
has that of our putative reformer. Comp
troller McCardy. Both have played alto
gether too freely to the galleries, and
each will no doubt pay the penalty of
such a line of conduct before long. Mc-
Cardj' has had a narrow escape from pay
ing It much earlier than he, or, indeed,
anybody else expected; and Coler, no
doubt, will pay it before he Is much old
er.
For what men of this type do to pro
mote the public welfare they should be
thanked. No doubt they have at one
time or other a well-defined purpose to
accomplish good things, and until they
learn to regard themselves as embody
ing all the virtues prevalent in their vi
cinity in their own persons, they no doubt
fulfill a useful function.
Their preceptß are mostly of infinitely
more value than thfir practices, and at
least the example they set of apparently
safeguarding the public interests Is fruit
ful of excellent results.
The New Y rork official has recently been
making a speech in Illinois, and It must
be said that it was an excellent speech,
at least In part. It was on the failure
of responsible citizens to discharge their
public duties, and the corruption which
results tberefrom. The Importance of the
cities and their public life in determin
ing the tone of political morals he treat
ed with all the thoughtfulness and thor
oughness of a man who had studied his
subject out carefully.
The following extract will show the
spirit of Comptroller Color's address:
"Corruption in state and municipal
government has too long been accepted
in this country as a matter of course.
There lias been a growing tendency
among men who were otherwise good
citizens to shirk public duties. They
wanted to keep out of politics and pub
lic life, but in keeping out they made
room in high places for men who ought
to be in jail. The spirit of corrupt com
mercialism has Invaded politics and pub
lic life in this, country, and in some of
the larger cities the invasion has, for a
time, overiun the government. By the
spirit of commercialism in this connec
ion, I mean that public feeling, far too
prevalent in this country, that politics is
a business, and those engaged in it are
entitled to make money out of it."
If men who start out in public life to
deal uprightly by the people in every di
rection fall by the wayside and resort,
if not to dishonesty and corruption, at
least to demagogism, in order to main
tain their hold on popular favor, It must
be said that the reasons why It so hap
pens are maiiy of them set forth in the
foregoing extract. If the intelligent and
well-to-do citizen would entertain as
close an interest in the conduct of his
public concerns as does his brother less
satisfactorily situated in worldly affairs,
there would be no need for such men to
make any concession to falsehood or false
pretenea; but the official who remained
steadfast In his adherence to the princi
ple that the people should control their
own affairs and have them conducted as
economically and as honorably as the
private citizen does his would be found
in public station much more generally
than he is today.
Porto Rico should be proud of the fact
that it is the only country in the world
that has the distinction of being a for
eign country under certain circumstances,
and a part of the United States when il
Is convenient to have it so.
Mr. Hanna trusts that the Republican
belligerents in Dt-laware will get together
and settle their dllferenees. Air. Hanna
has so many trusts on his hands that he
may get badly mixed up before the next
campaign is ended.
The astronomers have developed gome
pictures of the eclipse of the sun, but the
Republican managers at Philadelphia
have not yet developed a candidate for
vice president.
The Chinese tsung 11 yamen has re
turned the manuscript of "Meet Me at the
Gates oL' Pekin," forwarded by the pow
ers, unopened and unanswered.

"Mam'zelle. 1' For the last half of the
week "Ingomar."
CONTEACTOR GETS NO MONEY.
Hasn't Kalllllod His Cuutru«t on
WubiiMlm Uricl <;'•.» Substructure.
Contractor Charles Stone, who is doing
the substructure work on the Wabasha
street bridge, has been refused money on
j his bill, City Engineer Claussen holding
i that under the contract his part of the
work should have been completed three
months ago. and that a penalty of $20 a
day has since been piling up against him.
The contractor has completed the piers,
but Is delayed on the rip-rapping by the
operations of the iron men at work on the
superstructure.
JABBED BY A HATPIN.

of C. W. Staehle, 300 Rice street.
He found a hatpin while he was working
and slack it into his vest pocket. In
Rome way the hat pin was stuck into his
left aide, and he fainted. The Rondo

and conveyed him t<v tho city hospital
The doctors at that place made an exami
nation of him, and, finding that he was
only s'.ightly hurt, he was allowed to go
home.
DRAMA IN GREEK.

The state executive committee of the
Minnesota Woman Suffrage association
will hold monthly meetings at headquar

so ma ay ma; tor.-; coming up relative to
the great National American Woman Suf-

be actively engaged through the summer.
At the last meeting It was decided to dis

PASSES ON REUTTCSITIONS.
Committee Which Approve* Depart
ment Supplies Organize*.
The requisition committees of the board
of aldermen and assembly met yesterday
afternoon in the committee room of the
council chamber and effected organiza
tion. At the beginning of each adminis
tration these committees get together anil
elect a joint chairman, to whom is dole
gated the performance of the Joint com.
ratttee's function, which is to pass upon
requisitions for supplies from the various
departments of the municipal government
and then submit them to the council—
which Is, however, in no wise bound by
the requisition committee's action.
Neither the members o!' the committee
nor the chairman, who does all the work,
get any pay, yet one-, in two weeks the
chairman must hold a session, scan the
long lists of items wanted, and aflix his
signature to a couple hundred.
Two Democrats and two Republicans-
just enough lor a quorum, showed up
yesterday afternoon—Aid. Hunt and As
semblymen Nelson, Benson and Whit
comb. Aid. Nelson, Republican, was
honored with the chairmanship for six
months, ai.d the others quickly departed,
leaving him to begin his labors on a
bunch of about 100 lisis of supplies want
ed.
In the term of the previous administra
tion but one formal meeting was held, the
chairman being given full powei to act
an-1 call in members when he wanted ad
vlco. The new committee will probably
get together every six months and elect
a new chairman, thus dividing the honor
and the laboj-.
VEGA SOCIETY PICNIC.
It Will Be IfPld To rrow at Kurt

Vega society will picnic tomorrow at
Harris' park, For: Sn 1 ing. Oscar West

and a big day is looked for. There will
be a number of athletic contests and the
prizes offered the winners amount to up
wards of $50. Pepin's orchestra will fur
nish music and there will be danc'ng and
refreshments.
POLICE COMMISSION'S OFFICE.
Mu>or >mi Ih May Take Huildln^
I iiHiMi-l or* I! ioiiim for It.
It seems lilcely that Building Inspector
Haas may be evicted to give place to a
more potent factor in the municipal ma
chinery. The newly created police com
mission has not yet been housed, and its
important functions, in Mayor Smith's
judgment, entitle it to a second floor lo
cation.
The matter rests with the city hall and
court house OQJnmisßion, a nd must soon be
settled.
FIRST EEGIMENT BAND.
It Will He Tomorrow* Attraction
' lit' Lake t'onm.
Tho First Regiment band concerts to be
given at Como park tomorrow afternoon
and evening will bo the best entertain
ment that could have "been secured for
the occasion.
Director Rossiter has selected his pro
grammes for the concert with great care,
and there Is no doubt that they will be
as thoroughly enjoyed as were those of
last Sunday. The matinee and evening
bills both contain a good selection of
march music, together with several over
tures, quicksteps, cakewalks and other
popular airs.
LIGHTS WILL GO OUT.
Aldermanic Com ml life Approves
Pal»lic WorUs Board's Cat.
The report of the board of public works
discontinuing 300 lamps in various parts
of the city has been approved by the al
dermamc committee on streets— a mete
formality, since the aldermen have no
authority over the. board in the matter.
Aid. Bantz and Aid. Dahlquist voted no,
the former 'to go on record as opposing
the removal of lights in his ward.
ELKS' TRIP TO STILLWATER.
liearine Time of Train Ha« Been
Set an Hour Earlier.
A change in the time of the leaving of
the train tonight, which is to carry the
Elks to Stillwater to attend the circus
of lha brethren there, has been made.
The train will leave at G:35, instead ef
7:15, as heretofore announced, so the
party will have another hour for the fun
in the neighboring city.
ENGLISH LUTHERAN SYNOD.
It Will Meet Wednesday at (ioixl

Robbed a Pay Station.
Somp thief broke into the automatic
pay station in the Washburn building-,
and took away the telephone company's
earnings for nearly a month.
The station is located in the hall of
the building, which is open night and
day. The till is inside of a slidirg- door,
which may be removed. The cast Iron
box was smashefl with a hammer or
kicked to pieces.
The telephone people do not know how
much there was in the box, but think it
was about $15. The thief has not been
caught yet.

Emil Hoehle, a boy fourteen years old,
wa.s arrested yesterday afternoon for th^
alleged larceny of some musical Instru

beries.
The way in* which he gained entrance
to Brown, Treacy & Co.'s showed that
he had been in the business before. He,
with some other boys, got a rope and

Fred C. Schlffznann delivered the Fm--^
ward last evening for Capt. Van Sant
for governor. There was no excitement,
nor even enthusiasm, attached to the pro
ceeding. The Fourth ward club, In what
was really a very decorous meeting, for
that body at least, indorsed Capt. S. R.
Van Sajit, and the county convention del
egation from the Fourth was Instructed
for the captain.
Fred Schiffmann wielded the gavel, or
rather a hickory cane, which chastised
the table periodically to secure order, and
it can perhaps be said that he delivered
the promised indorsement with less effort
than might be expected.
After fixing- up a list 01 .I,.!.'gates to the
county convention, the moiion was made
that Capt. Van Sam's name be placed at
the head of all the precinct tickets in the
ward, which carried unanimously.
The question of finances was one that
did not require any great amount of time.
It was found necessary to raise $10 to pay
for the printing of the tickets, and after
the hat had been passed there was a. bal
ance in the treasury to the good, after
the printing bill had been deducted.
A resolution of congratulation was pass
ed, directed to Fred Schiffmann, delegate
to the Republican national convention at
Philadelphia.

DELAWABE FIGHT,
The most interesting incident of the
day was reserved until late In the aft
«-moon. It was a speech by Senator Ilan
no on the Delaware case, in which be
made an impassioned appeal for the
burial of the batchel between the Addicks
and Duporrt factions. The Delaware con
troversy was brought to the from by a
report in the rase made by the subcom
mittee appointed to make an effort to
bring: the two factions to a basis of agree
ment. When this report was called for.
-•xceptiona! precautions were taken to pre
vent the escape .•;' any word <>r" the pro
ceedings to the corridors. Committecman
C'uming. of lowa, presented the re
port of the subcommittee. !!■■ said that
lie and bis coHeagues had made an ear
nest appeal lo the leaders <>n both sides
to subordinate th< ir private interests and
their prejudices t'> the general welfare
and interest of the party. They had b je:i
:isk,d, he said, to unite, each side ac
cepting fair representation. The Addicks
people had assured him that this ;ir
rangement would he satisfactory to them,
but the opposing delegation had held out
for absolute recognition, agreeing to make
proper efforts to secure harmony in state
and national contests. There was a prop
osition to seat the Addicks delegation.
1 lit this was m.'i with a suggestion to ro-
K'mmit the matter to the subcommittee.
with instructions to make still further ef
fort to bring th~ contesting factions to
gether.
MR. HANNA'S PLEA.
Sir. Hanna took the Moor in support of
this latter proposition. He only occupied
about five minutes' time, but he spoke
with great earnestness. His speech was
an appeal for unity of action, and he
said that no effort should be spared to
accomplish this i-nd. He referred to the
objection of the Dupont-Higgins people
to Mr. Addirks, and said thai opposi
tion to no one man could be allowed to
stand in the way of party success :r..
aware or el? -where.
"I am satisfied," he continued, "that I
reflect the sentiment of the president In
my appeal to effect a settlement ot this
controversy, as this ease is one that ap
!)•-"is to the common sense of every man
here. We mast put aside personalities,
rise above petty prejudices, and take
ou:- stand on the broader plane of pa
triotism and party su'Tfc.s.s. The com
mittee cannot afford to take up the per
sonal cause of any set of men, much
less can it afford to espouse the cause
oi any individual."
Continuing, he said that contingencies
might possibly arise in which Delaware
would settle a national contest, and It
wa.s particularly important that the se
lection of h candidate for th United
State* senate should be borne In mind.
There wan a safe Republican majority
hi the seuate at present, but no oik?
could tell what emergencies might arise
or what contingencies might occur. Con
tinuing; Her:;.tor HaVina said:
"'I feel j>n intense Interest in this case,
because of its possible bearing upon na
tional politics, and I appeal to you, in
deed I supplicate the Delaware Repub
licans of both parties, to forget that
there has ever been a factional li^ht in
the party in your state, and to unite in
ill" interest of the common cause, and it
will not do to forget that the responsi
bility for any mistake that is made will
i>e fastened upon those who make it."
The senator's utterances wire liberally
applauded by members of the committee,
and when he concluded there was no
opposition to recommittal of the ques
(ion.

For ten years people had been watting
