That moment has come to Cuba as a nat'on. On th's decision will rest her prosperity or her toing. If the Cubans were shrewd they \\i;l' take advantage of the situa tion t<"" for«vtr secure the future pros v.critv cf the island. They would accept the terms of the Flatt ana ndment with ! the condition that they were to have i free access to the markets cf the United States. ralnty with complete reci procity would co more fcr Cuta than ten centuries of Cuta iibre. Should Cuba demand the open door as a consideration for limited sovereignty, the United States could not refuse the terms. Of course, the sugar and tobacco interests would howl; there would be prolests and peti- ! tidiis from the same infiu:nee that 13 I now wrecking Porto Rico, but it would be of r. i avail under, the present public I r. ssure for the settlement of the Cuban question. Annexation would bring the greatest blessings to Cuba, but her people do not realize it. Th< y fail to comprehend the conditions that would prevail; they don't realize that they would enjoy ab solute free trade with a vast country Which would use all of the island prod uct; that the question cf government would be simplified and brought dawn to the management of local affairs, reduc ing, the burden of public tax to a mini mum. All this they can not sea be cause they are blinded by a sentiment. For years they have fought for inde pendence and they want to be able to look up to the Cuban flag and feel it is the emblem of a sovereign nation. This 6entiment is commendable, but it is noth ing but a dream that will be rudely dis turbed—a toy. that will te soon broken. If the Cuban convention had been com posed of men who were large enough to look a few years into the future r they would have greeted the Platt amendment with a smile of joy, for it gave them just the opportunity which a diplomat would have desired to secure the one thing that Cuba must have to be pros perous and happy—the unobstructed en trance to the markets of the United States. That is not too late now; the ultimatum has not been defied—the mat ter is still open to negotiation. Before congress meets, if the Cubans are wise they will have framed an ac ceptance of the demands of this gov ernment with one condition and that ex pressed in two words, "free trade." Then it will be up to congress to accept the condition or show its hand. If the spoliation- of Cuba is the ultimate de sideratum of the Republican party the fact will be forced to the light then and there. Should Cuba apply for admission to the Union as a state, there would be found 011 the floor of the house aria of the senate scores of men representing the sugar and tobacco interests protesting against such an act. It is that influence and its allied neighbors that has impov erished Porto Rico, and that is urging upon the government a colonial policy in the Philippines. If the supreme court should find that the administration and congress can es tablish colonies outside of the constitu tion, then will Porto Rico and the Phil ippines become the legitimate prey of the political grafter. The machinery of gov ernment will bo run, not for the benefit of the Filipino people, but for the ben efit of the home trusts and the imported corporations composed of congressmen and their friends. Cuba can escape all this by renouncing a little sentiment dn-the score of abso. lute independence. Sentiment is all right In its place, but in dealing with one of the most selfish bodies on the face of the earth, the American congress, senti ment well be exchanged for a ma terial advantage. . : THE CANTERX FOLL.Y. The intelligence which comes through the press dispatches that the repeal of the canteen law has operated to greatly increase drunkenness in the vicinity of the army posts all over the country will surprise few, save the extreme advocates of prohibition, whose prejudices have op erated to blind them to the inevitable re sult of such action. The effort to control the appetite for liquor by making it necessary for the eoldier to go outside of the military res ervation is an absudity in itself. No euch result can follow of course. Ttie inevitable result, it must seem to even the most prejudice/3, is that the consump tion of intoxicants by the. soldier must be carried on under private direction. If the soldier -was all the time confined to his military grounds there might be some sense in the undertaking of abol ishing the canteen, even though it would involve a clear attempt, unconstitutional and unwarranted, to deprive the soldier of his well-defined right to expend his wages as he: thought proper. It is not necessary, as so many of the advocates of the canteen are in the habit of do ing, to insist that the saloons established in the vicinity of military quarters are any worse than those established else where. It is sufficient, in order to show how the wisdom of a regulation which invests the soldier's superiors with some supervisory power over his expenditures for drink, to saj* that the possibility of over-indulgence is decidedly lessened by such a regulation. No drunkenness will bo tolerated in camp. The offending soldier is certain to meet with severe punish ment for any infraction of the rule against drunkenness on the grounds. Once outside, the soldier, like the civ ilian, has only the civil authorities to deal with. The associations and sur roundings are such as lead much more surely to excess, outside the post than within. Whatever safeguards are repre sented by the canteen are dispensed. The soldier natural.y looks forward once outside the post to entire freedom in the matter of drinking, especially If during his stay within the military grounds ho is denied all access to drink. This whole subject is one which should be left absolutely to the military au thorities. It la merely the spirit cf the silly intermed.iler which has brought about the doing away with the sale of drink inside military po-ts to the m n of the rank and file. The superiors of those men know what is beat for them in that direction, individually and collectively. Congress might with a3 much propriety dictate to the military of ficers what food should be served or when it should be served as to declare that the men shall not be allowed to take drink at their meals or otherwise while they remain in camp. The subject is one of considerable im portance to the soldier, as we'l as to so ciety. Whatever in the way of depriva tion or restraint is thought necessary • should be left to those who are respon- j sible for the discipline and efficiency of ' our military force 3. If those well meaning but inconsiderate persons who against the judgment of the country found themselves able to coerce congress into the adoption of their m asure find the result to be the increase of drunken ness among the soldiers theirs is the responsibility. It is comforting at least to reflect that such a result will inevi tably secure to those who should have the power the right by law to regulate as seems to them best the consumption of intoxicants by soldiers within military posts. NO MORE COMMON LAW MAR RIAGES. New York is to have no more common law marriages. After Jan. 1, 1902. After that date a woman who wishes to claim an estate belonging to a man with whom she has been living, can do so only upon showing a regular certificate of marriage or a written contract signed by/the de ceased acknowledging her as his wife. The common law marriage dodge be came very popular among a certain c!as3 of fortune hunters. Nearly every un married man who chanced to die pos sessed of property and intestate, was fol lowed to his grave by from one to four common law wives; all with the same story of acknowledgment of the marital relations, but. minus the usual ceremony. All of these allege-d oral agreements may have taken place, but it has been a no ticeable fact that only men of property make them. .It seems strange that the very men who would be loth to make entangling alliances on account of the property involved have always been the very ones to do that very thing. The law restricting marriage is a move ment in the right direction. It is the laws regulating marriage instead of laws regulating divorce that need tinkeiin?. If emigration from celibacy to the state of matrimony is rendered difficult, the ex odus from the slate of matrimony will not be so marked, when on account cf dry weather, a hail storm, or even a tornado, the crops are poor. Most of the legisla tures have been tinkering at the wrong end* of the difficulty. HIS FINTSM AS A REFORMER. That approved Republican reformer anl statesman. Doc Ames Is not receiving that recognition of his avowed merits as a public purist which he ought in his own estimation to receive. It is the boast of his friends that he has given the best administration to the city that it ever enjoyed and they point with especial pride to the fact that more stolen prop erty has been recovered during his ad ministration than ever before. The truth of the charge against Mayor Ames that he was engaged in building up a political machine has been for all prac tical purposes admitted. His purpose in this regard was perfectly plain from the outset. His discharge of 50 per cent of the police force including men of years of experience and tried fidelity and ca pacity was concededly the result of his purpose in this direction and he has never thought it worth his while to enter any denial of the charge. To all the imputa tions cast on him and his administration he has unfailingly turned to the record of his police force in the matter of the recovery of stolen property—a record which might be read differently by dif ferent persons. But while the thieves have been busy returning their booty, and the Minneapo lis police force has been the subject of anxious litigation as the result of its transformation into a personal and po litical machine, the ordinary wayfarer seems to have had forced upon hia con sciousness that not even the superiority of Doc Ames as a social and moral re rormer has sufficed to materially lessen the prevalence of crime within the city limits or to entirely eliminate the sus picion that there is clear concert of ac tion among the criminals and reorganized and purified police force. It is passing strange why there should be any doubt as to the moral uprightness of Doc Ames and his administration as mayor. Is he not a good Republican? Has he not been elected by the votes and active labors of the best people in Min neapolis? Is it not a distinctive badge of a reforming tendency when a man avows himself a candidate in oppo THE ST. PAUL GLOBE, TUESDAY, AFKH, 16, 1901. sltion to an existing Democratic munici pal administration? The former mayor of Minneapolis was a Democrat. Being a Democrat, and not being willing to accept the theories of official responsibility which seek moral purification through Irrational and vio lent opposition to popular habits and of thought and conduct recognized as in grained in every community, he of course was not acceptable to the true-blue re former. Gray would not proceed Quixote like to wipe out all saloons and other re sorts which are not acceptable to the truly moral elements of society. He had given a clean, effective and conservative administration, without either robbery or crime or complicity with crime char acterizing it; but he was a Democrat and was therefore amenable to influences which the true reformer never make 3 compromise with. A Republican reformer was wanted and—Ames was forthcoming: The Rev. Charles Bay aid Mitchell, doctor of divinity and pastor of the Hen nepin Avenue Methodist churoh, is him self something of a reformer—a man who keeps his eye steadfastly en the scarlet woman and other characters figurative of the old Adam in man. He is not sat isfied with the doctor as a reformer, and he has said so. He has said it, too, with the largest expenditure of hyper bole and with such mental and literary contortions as would turn the moon pale with affright, were that mild luminary to overhear the reverend gentleman's ex cited utterances. The divinity doctor speaks for the thoughtful citizen who elected Mayor Ames. Cf that there can be no doubt; and the political doctor must accordingly beware. We have had two or three awful ex amples of the downfall of the Republic an reformer in the mayors chair in this city of ours, as the outcome of their in ability to hear the voice of their breth ren who had voted for them on the as sumption that their administrations would never be found acting in complic ity with professional criminals. But Wright and Doran and the others have passed away officially, and there is naught of them left. If Doc Ames docs not take heed their fate awiits him. Each of them had arm3d hima If with a machine just as the doctor has done. Each of them threw the Democratic po lice officer upon the cha ity of a coll world in the midst of winter, and did it in the name of reform; and thereupon the professional criminal, the "con" man, the strong-armed artist, and the "big mif operator, came into control as they are now in our sister city and remained to the end. But the machine collapsed and the Republican reformer in the major's chair knew the place no long r. Doc Ames shoull hearken to the voice of Dr. Charles Bayard Mitchell, and of the other reformers of that ilk, to whom he is in such large measure politically indebted, or he may meet the fate which overtook our own Uepublicran reformers once upon a time. WHAT AILS OUR CUBAN TRADE? American exports to Cuba during nine months last year were nearly four mil lions less than for the same period the year before. What is the matter? During the same period British ex ports to Cuba increased about two mil lions, while German exports increased 5) per cent. The exports of Belgium and cf Norway and Sweden to Cuba likewise ad vanced one-half in volume while those of Italy and Austria-Hungary to th» Cuban market doubled. What does it mean? It is true that the United States still is the largest exporter to Cuba by a large amount, but we always were, and we ought always to be because of Cuba's proximity. It is saying nothing that we furnish 45 per cent of the importations of an island that is almost within hail ing distance of our mainland, instead of being separated by the Atlantic ocean as in the case of European exporters. On top of the news that Cuba is "con sidering" the constitutional policy of the United States government, come these statistics of falling trade. The question naturally arises—ls the United States popular with the Cubans? Is Cuba sick of our new colonial notions, of our post office depredations, of our military airs, and our Porto Rican doings, to the ex tent that she would rather buy goods in Europe than of us? At any rate, the subject Is worth seri us consideration. The fact stands, that during the past year our -exports to Cuba have fallen off 15 per cent, while those of other nations have increased 10 per cent to 100 per cent. If trade follows the flag, what has become of our flag in Cuba? Is it at half-mast? The committee of fifteen has found that vice exists in New York city. Vice in New York city, think of that. If we had a committee of fifteen, what could it find in St. Paul? As was expected, the abolition of the army canteen is having its effect. Drunk enness in the army has increased 100 per cent since it went into effect. What will be the next move of our W. C. T. U. friends in the line of temperance reform? When Funston returns from the Philip pines he can get a job in Kentucky. They want some one who has the nerve to capture Tagalog Taylor, who is hiding somewhere in the Republican fastnesses of "Hoop Pole township," Indiana. Minister Loomis could learn wisaom from the remarks of the parrot whose eternal clatter brought upon him an at tack from a passing dog. Polly, after pruning his ruffled feathers, remarked to himself, "Polly-Polly, you talk to d d much." The Minneapolis Times in discussing the ousting of Prof. Ross from Le land Stanford university take-3 the posi tion that a university professor should prostitute his principles and stultify himself to please his employers ail draw his salary. When the virtuous and high-minded Times take 3 such a position regarding the duty of a universky in structor, what can we expect of the Times in the field of business and po litical ethics? Emperor William has had his fortune told, by a real live gypsy. It is reported that the emperor gave the strictest at tention to the narrative and then a»- sured the Woman of fate, that what she had said would not swerve him in the least from pursuing the. de=tlny which the Almighty had la!d out for him. This is very strange. We should think that a divinely appointed regent would heed the admonitions of every fortune teller who saw fit to "'unsold the future. While Alexaflaer" McKenzls languishes in a California jail waiting for the presi dent to pardon him, Taylor it trembling in his shoes le^t t*qe governor of Indiana turn him over to the Kentucky authori ties to be tried for murder. This seen;s to have been a- haji season for political bosses. Platt haa foeen snubbed at Wash ington and bea.rde4 at home by the po litical stripling., Q4(#l. Mark Hanna has been compelled to see that fellow, Urn Johnson, mayor of Cleveland. Can it be that the graft of the political bos 3 is growing lesV? We dare not hepa—the signs may be b'yt false lights intended to deceive. p«—-, It is reported that Carol Norton, the high priest of the Christian scientists in I<few York, has taken unto himself a wife. This is against the teachings of Mother Eddy, who believes that physical marriage should be prohibited. Just how the race Is to be perpetuated by mental union the great law giver does not state. Inasmuch, however, as Mrs. Eddy experi mented during her eventful career with three husbands, she ought to be pretty good authority on the subject. To ietuin to Brother Norton; he Is not married there Is nothing of the kind the matter with him, he just thinks he is mariiei, that is all. He needs treatment for what ails him. New York is about to pass a law to tax mortgages and ether securities by means of stamps. The idea although novel ought to be effectual. A stamp repre senting the annual tax must be affixed to the document and canceled, in order to make the instrument legal. This does away with the system of assessors and makes each man his own tax Collector. There is no need of statements revealing the assets of each business man. All that he needs to do" is to buy stamps enough to pay his tax and stick them on. The scheme is simplicity itself. No man will run the risk of invalidating his securities by omitting to apply his tax stamps. AT THE THEATERS. CHORAIi OLUB CONCERT. To say that the. St. Paul Choral club at the People* church last night dupli cated the success of its nrst appearance would not be quite'sufficient, for in many respects^ last hig-ht's concert was more satisfying than the first appearance of the club. The chorus*has gained in so many respects, but more than any thing else in flexibility and smoothness, that comparing iv two public appear ances it would seem that the time be tween had beeii mUch longir than a few months, Mr. George F. Normington has demonstrated in a marked degree his ability to weave from raw material a smcoth and beautiful fabric whose colors must surely Increase in richness as they are more and more used. Per haps one reason for the mark ed success of last night's concert waa its diversity. Everyone cannot ap preciate or enjoy an "Elijah," but captious indeed must he have been last night who could find no-thing to enjoy in the programme that was presented, so wide a range did it embrace. Naturally, interest centered around the appearance of Joseph S: Baernstein, who 3ang last night in St. Paul for the fir.it time. Mr. Bacrnsteln's opening solo was the dramatic "Wo Berg' Ich Mich," from Weber's "Euryanthe." The solo reveal ed the dramatic timbre of the singer's voice, its virility and—what Is rare in so big a voice as the basso possesses—its sympathetic quality. Mr. Baernstein has remarkable self poise and he is exceed ingly versatile. If his voice was com pelling in the tremendous "Why Do the Nations Rage," from ' The Messiah"— sung by special request—it had all the tenderness of a woman's in Van der Stucken's "The Sweetest Flower That Blows," and in Schumann's plaintive ballad, "Ich Grolle Nicht." Mr. Baern stein may have shocked some, but pleased many, when he sang for an encore that old Irish ditty. "I Leave For Philadel phia in the Morning." For an opening, number the chorus sang the "Song of the Vikings"' (Fan ing), Mrs. Hoffmann and Mr. Fairclough playing the piano-accompaniment. The song of the chorus was spiritedly sung. In Leslie's "Lullaby of Life" the flexi bility of the chqrus was more completely shown and the liiilaby was exceedingly effective. The cantata. Spohr's "God, Thou Art Great," was sung toy the club and the quartette, composed of Mr. Baernstein. Harry George, Mibs Pace aid Miss Pearl Benham. A '■surprising volume was ob tained in the finale. The quartette number, "Walk Ye," was impres3iveiy rendered. _ r Sterndale B«nr.ePfs cantata, "The May Queen," concluded- the programme. Mi.-.s Pace, who satig the role of the Quern of May, was in excellent voice last eT*n ing. S>he was not only satisfying vocal ly, but dramaticaliy as well. Miss Ben ham, in the role of the queen, was hard ly so satisfactory'- Her contralto has a fair range and plenty of vivid color, but it has the effect now and then of \e ing repressed. It is too prim a voice to be dramatic. Although Mr. George did some excellent work, his voice was hardly up to its usual standard. His words were often indistinct, and this showed very plainly beside Mr. Baern stein's clear-cut work. The latter, as Robin Hood, sang with excellent effect the few solos that were given him. Mr. Fairclough, who presided at the organ, shared honors with Mrs. Hoff mann as accompanist. METROPOLITAN. Al G. Field's big minstrel company is delighting the patrons of the Metropoli tan with the best performance of min strelsy this city has seen for some time. A popular price matinee will be given tomorrow afternoon. Mr. Howard Gould, in "Rupert of Hent zau," will be seen at the Metropolitan on Thursday, supported by a strong com pany and with - entire scenic investi ture used in the: New York presenta tion. \.::;;-v; ,-•-, ".. ■'■ , : GRAND.

LITERAEY NOTES. Gen. Dewet, the most elusive and ro mantic of the Boer generafls, Is described In the May Scribner's by Thomas P. MU lard as he saw hdm Intimately In the field. It Is a striking paper on an heroic character. The author of the study of "Saloons" from their social side, to appear in the May Soribner's, is Robert Alston Steven son, a young man who has devoted a good deal of time to college settlement work. He i 3 also a writer of fiction—one of his stories having appeared in the last num ber of Scribner*B. Dr. John H. Girdner, who has long been known In the medical profession and identified as a friend of William Jennings Bryan, has just completed a book upon some of the peculiarities of New York, which will shortly bo published by the Grafton Press, of No. 1 Madison avenue. New York. H. G. Wells has now completed the novel on which he has been working for some time past, the heroine of which is a mermaid, who is rescued from what was feared would be a watery grave by some blundering bathers. It is to appear in Pearsons Magazine, commencing in the July number. In the same issue is to be published the first installment of Max Fcmberton's new book. "The Heritage of Unrest" is Jn its third edition. Few recent novels have been better described by their titles than this. It illustrates Miss Gwendolen Overton's style of the apt phrase that she has put the spirit of her book in four words. The breaking down of the floodgates In the social barriers to marriage with inferior races is the motive of this story, which is peculiarly American in its social out look and its plot. Little old St. John's church, In Wash ington, is quite appropriately the sub ject of the leading article In the Easter lumber of The International Magazine of Chicago. The writer, Irene Rowland, handles her theme cleverly and enter tainingly, and pictures of the exterijr of the church; its interior decorated for one of the many fashionable weddings which have taken place there; the rec tor, find so on, add interest to the sketch. Some amusing anecdotes of Washington society are told en passant. Current History is specially diesigned to serve the busy reader. It sians up monthly the important news of the world, carefully sifted of non-essentials, ana bringing out clearly the cardinal points of recent progress along all lines. A half hour will post the reader on all the lead ing questions of the day. The April num ber is abundantly illustrated, and gives prominent space to the Chinese n-egotla tions, Cuban and .Philippine problems, tariff war with Russia, relations of Eng land and Germany, The Hague tribunal of arbitration, industrial consolidations, the riots jji Spaiin, the s?rvice of missions, the new star in Perseus, printing without ink, etc. Only a brief summary of Mr. Cleve land's two recent lectures on the Vene zuela affair was given to the public—the lectures having been especially copyright ed for appearance in tttie June and July numbers of the Century Magazine, Few except special students are aware of the long history of the connection of th« United States with the subject. Among the interesting points brought out In the lectures, and not reported, may be men tioned Mr. Cleveland's scathing remarks on the relation of the senate to treaties formulated by the executive branch of the government. The lectures constitute Mr. Cleveland's most important contribu tion to history. Prarson's Magazine for May make 3 a bulky and varied volume. The most im portant article is "The Story of South Carolina," edited by R. Means Davis, professor of history at South Carolina college. It Is a strong, dramatic and clean-cut history of the state, strength ened by nearly fifty Illustrations. This forms the fourth chapter of ""'The Story of the States" series, which commenced in the February issue. An article on "Archangel," the capital of Northern Russia, is also likely to attract attention. This city, which is buried beneath a mantle of snow for the greater part of the year, Is about to become the great western port of Russia's new trade. Some lovely illustrations of the city are reproduced. Still another remarkable article is the first authoritative account of the new system of signaling under the sea, invented by Arthur J. Mundy and the late Prof. Elisha Gray. It has been proved that by this system a vessel can be warned of her approach to the coast when at least twelve miles off, and the tremendous value of the device to hu manity, to commerce and to science has led to its being taken up by the United States government. Other notable fea tures are articles on "Trick Driving With an Automobile," "Scientific Kite Fly ing," two natural history articles, finely illustrated; seven short stories, "Home Notes"—dealing with fashions and other matters more particularly interesting to women—seven short stories, including one for children by Seumaa MacManus, and a half a dozen other features.

MILWAUKEE, Wis., April 15—Judge Eugene S. Elliott, in the circuit court to day decided that Christian scientists are not liable to prosecution under the state medical law. The court ruled that sci entists can no more be held for practic ing- medicine when their means for h«al lng is by prayer, than can a minister who prays at the bedside of the sick, and receives therefore, directly or indi rectly, payment.

OF INTEREST TO WOMENI SUPEfRSTITIONS OX MOVING. What .Somm- People Think of Certain Incidents of It. Now that the spring moving season is at hand, few 'housewives w.ll dare to defy all of the superstitions, says the New York Journal. If an old broom is taken in along with the household goods the new home will always be dirty. The Irish saying is that if window shades are moved the sorrows of the past will go too.

They do not al ways have a cover. ■Slpeclmeii Menn—Wednesday. Use gas for cooking. BREAKFAST. Fruit. Cereal. Cream. Dried Beef, Scrambled Eggs. Creamed Potatoes. • - Buttered Toast. Coffee. S^ LUNCH.
