discrimination against the men taking:

men agree that no proposition to strike
shall bo acted on by themselves within
forty-eight hours, and thai six days'

Inaugurated. All this Is supplemented by
the provision that the company reserves
right to employ union or non-union
as it chooses, and to discharge its
men for cause—such cause, no doubt, as
it deems adequate.
Which of those principles was it which
either of the parties refused to recognize,
and which caused the trouble? If the
ny reserves the right to dis
charge men for cause w'nich it deems ad
equuto, and to employ union or non
union mi n as it pleases, is there any rea
son, considering the relations in the past
of the- union and the company, for doubt

will be for non-union men, or that, as
an Inevitable result the union among
the street railway men of Albany Is

WIPE THEM OCT.
The decision of the Sixth street mer
chants to dispense with all overhanging
signs is much to be commended. The
overhanging sign is a public nuisance.
It has been carried to such an extent
as to result in the almost total disfigure
ment of certain business thoroughfares.
Indeed streets like West Seventh
have been made hideous and, to pedes
trians, dangerous, In certain localities,
by tho rest of swinging and projecting
. signs which prevails.
The merchants who have taken this
stop have set a much needed- example.
It must, of course, be recognized that the
fierceness of competition in trade makes
many men do that which they would
not feel disposed • otherwise to do, and
many men who think swinging and pro
jecting, signs undesirable have been
compelled to resort to them because
competitors do. But, as a general
proposition; It may be said that the more
extensive merchants and those of set
tled business have offended less in this
regard than others.
It Is not only a public wrong but a
private injustice that these signs should
be allowed to prevail. The police a*
thorities would have been justified on
many grounds In abolishing them long
ago. That they will "be finally done
away with even without reference to the
men on S:::th street, seems Inevitable.
But the example set practically seals
their fate. Those merchants who do not
feel called on to follow the example

PIT IT rV FORCE.
Nothing whatever -ha* as yet been done
to tot in motion tho movement toward
the application 1* of the Torrens system
of land transfers. The law is in exist
ence in three counties of the state, but
it might as well never have been en
acted as to have it continue on the
books without tho necessary stops being
taken to put it in operation.
The way of all reforms is hard. The
progress of this reform has been espe
cially slow, notwithstanding that the
experience of every community in which
it has been ordained has been that it is
of distinct public value.
The appointment of examiners of title
is tho first step necessary to the en
forcement of the law. While the sys
tem is in the experimental stage the
salaries which may be attached to tne
cilice of title examiner may be nominal.
It will be in no sense a public burden
to have such officials appointed. Since
the adoption of the system is optional
with the transferee of real estate, no
hardship can be imposed on those who
still prefer that thoir titles to their
realty shall rest on the assurance of
the lawyer examining thf.se titles cr of
the corporation insuring :
The other step which is necessary is
that the register of deeds shall file a
bond for the fa'thful übiharge . f the new
duties devolving on him. This i.-: <i vtry
simple requirement. The amount of the
bond need not be such :.'■ to Involve any
substantial difficulty <■■;• risk on the part
of the register of deeds in complying
with this particular req;:irement of the
The Globe would bo glad to see this
law in process of operation. To that end
it again suggests to the judges of the
district court the appointment at the
earliest convenient time of the registers
of title. If the system is not entitled to
the public sustalnment tho fact will be
made apparent after it is in operation.
But there is no sense whatever in passing
a law if the steps necessary to the cc
forcement of that law are not taken.
"WITHOUT AX AUDIENCE.
Senator Morgan's contribution to the
Philadclpfc! Record, designed to show
that the erection of Cuba as an inde
pendent national power must inevitably
involve the United States in war. does
not seem to have secured that degree
of public attention which is usually be
stowed on the public declarations of that
His contentions are stated at great
length, and very cogently. His prin
cipal point, however, is that there stands
nothing between the enforcement of
Spain's claims on the island as a nation
•who was compelled by superior force
to surrender her control save the en
forcement of the Montroe doctrine. He
argues that Spain may rightfully claim
that at the time of the enforced ex
cision of Cuba from her colonial posses
sions the residents of the islands were
mostly Spanish subjects who owed and
acknowledged allegiance to her, and that
for their protection she may find it nec
essary, in any future state of turmoil
that may arise in the island, to reassert
her national authority.
Of course, the senator goes farther
than this, taking the general position
that any one or more European powers
may think proper, for the pacification
of the country and the protection of the
interests of their citizens or subjects, to
interfere and assume control of Cuban
affairs for the time. This contention Is
backed up by a good deal of argument
that is at least plausible on its face,
but is wholly without point, since it ia
founded on a groat number of assump
tions and predictions no one of which
might ever be realized.
There are many reasons why Senator
Morgan does not secure an audience. The
first and controlling reason with the
average intelligent American is that the
United States has proceeded too far to
go back even if they could do so. They
have pledged their national honor to
non-interference after a responsible sys
tem of government is established, and
they have supplemented that pledge by
the recent conduct of the federal au
thorities in connection with the consti
tutional convention. So that at the
present moment there stands nothing
whatever between the realization of an
independent national existence for Cuba
except alone the adoption of the require
ments of the Platt amendment and the
establishment of a syste m of govern
ment which possesses the inherent power
Of course it may not be possible to es
tablish such a government in Cuba with
the prevailing resources of the island;
but such a contingency is quite unlikely
to arise. With the precautions set forth
in the Platt amendment realized, Cuba
will, under the nuspices of this people, set
up shop as an independent nation. The
experiment may not be a success; but
whether successful or not these two
tacts must be borne in mind, which ap
pear to have been passed over by Sena
tor Morgan: (1) That the United States
is able and will be found ready to protect
itself against the aggressions of any one
or more European powers in Cuba, and
(2) that when the Cuban people have de
cided for themselves that the experiment
of free government Is not, or is.not likely
to be, a success the recourse remains for
them of applying for admission to the
Pennsylvania-had a narrow escape from
being placed in the class with Kansas
and the solid South. The sheriff got

AT THE THEATERS.
Tie greatest theatrical event in the
history of St. Paul will occur at the
Metropolitan Opera house tonight, when
Mr. Richard Mansfield, America's fore
most actor, will appear in his grand pro
duction of Shakespeare's immortal war
Play, "Henry V." . The curtain will rise
promptly at 7:45, andj\ni fall on the last
act a few minutes after 11. For tonight's
performance over 200 seats are left on
the lower floor, and nearly as many in
the balcony. in addition to this nearly
400 locations are unsold of the cheaper
tickets in the gallery. jg
"The" Highwayman," De Koven &
Smith's successful comic opera, will be
the attraction at the Metropolitan the
latter half of, this week. *
"Knobs O' Tennessee," the production
now at the Grand, has the nucleus of
a good story in its lines but as now
written, there is little wholesome sub
ject matter to please and the unity of
the various parts is illy preserved. Tha
setting, too, of the production is unat
tractive and this, perhaps, in a measure,
helps to militate against it. ■'.'.' F'
The cast is not a strong '.- one. Miss
Alice Marble, she of the raucous voice,
strenuous Ration, and . ear-splitting
shrieks, would be more interesting if she
were less vehement. A little less sawing
of the air, and a clearer enunciation of
her words, would add immensely to"
the interest of the play. J. H. Lorenzen.
as Llgo Preston, has a pleasing person
ality and a deep musical voice. He can
modulate it finely, too. He is one of
the main props upon which the show 1
rests. Crystal Vizzard, as llennle..,.:s,
just about as painful to listen to as Miss
Marble. L. Mitchell, in his make-up as
President William McKlnley, . presents a
striking likeness to the first man of the
land and his bearing is dignified and
pleasing. Lem B. Parker, who takes the
leading role, is a large man, as befits
his part, and he gives the mountain dia
lect of the moonshiners better than the
rest of the cast. Ora Marble, who only
has a small part, does well and her
-forceful little J personality will win her
something better in the future than the
play she is now In. The other members
of the cast merely "fill in," as it were.
The production leaves a faint idea of
what the continual war that exists be
tween moonshiners and the government
authorities in the mountain fastnesses
of Tennessee is like. . ■_ ."-

SMART SHOET STORIES.
Some amusing instances of translators'
misunderstandings are mentioned by the
London Daily;• News. An Italian paper
not long- ago turned Kipling's "Absent-
Minded Beggar" Into a -Distracted Men
dicant." A foctt note to the same version
explained "son of a I.ambetlh publican"'
as a reference to Mr. Kruger! Another
Italian editor, who translated a passage
from an English paper about a. man who
had killed his wife with a poker, added
an ingenious foot-note to say: "We do
not know with certainty whether this
thing, 'pokero, 1 be a domestic or surgical
instrument." In Che French version of
one of Scott's novels, a Welsh rarebit has
to be dealt with. The translator, never
having met with that article of food, nat
urally turned It into "an Japin de Galles, '
and in a foot-note explained tihat the pe
culiarly delicious flavor of the rabbits
of Wales created a large demand for
them in Scotland, whitiher they were ex
ported in bulk that would compare with
the trade of Ostend. -me desperate ex
pedient of the French translator of
Cooper's 'Spy," who •'had to explain how
a horse could be foitched "to a locust,"
is also worth recalling. He had never
heard of a locust tree, and rendered the
word by "sauterelle," or grasshoppsr.
Feeling that this needed some explana
tion, he appended a footnote explaining
that grasshoppers grew to a gigantic
size in the- United States, and Chat it was
the custom to place a stuffed specimen
at the door of every considerable man
sion for the convenience of visitors, who
hitched their horses to it.
Like many a man whose whole mind Is
bent to a great work, Booker T. Washing
ton sometimes Is bothered with absent-
mindednesa. Mrs. Booker T. Washington,
to whom pays such an exalted trib
ute in "Up From Slavery," says that
soon after they were married they at
tended a reception together in a distant
city. When guests were leaving she nat
urally expected her husband, and later
looked for him, only to catch him in the
act of departing while conversing inter
estedly with another gentleman. Thl3
was a severe shook to the now bride,
but she has long since determined not
even to chide the Tuskegee principal,
even when he drives to the village and
comes back leaving the poor horse in
town to stand tied out there for hours
on a cold night: or when, on his return

The experience which a certain youngr
lady had in London on the day of Queen
Victoria's funeral will serve as an ex
cellent warning for those women who are
inclined to allow their humanitarian im
pulses to get the best of them. Thfs
sympathetic lady relieved a woman, who
appeared to be in a fainting state, of
her baby and 4iad it left upon her hands
by.the disappearance of the mother. Aft
er waiting in Vain for the mother to re
turn, the embarrassed young woman told
her story to ka policeman on the out
skirts of the crowd. "I have heard that
etory before, "i he grinned in a knowing
way, and refused to believe her. A visit
to the police-station brought the same
result—an utter disbelief of the unfortu
nate young woman's story. The work
house was tried, but with no better for
tune. It was six weeks before the shop
girl was able to get rid of. the child

There Is another story afloat about
punching tickets that ts almost as inter
esting. A man was licked by a con
ductor and then put off the train. He
boarded the next one that came along,
and everybody stared at him because his
face was swollen up and his eyes were
blackened. When the new conductor
came around to get the man's ticket
he looked at it awhile and then sard:
"You are not punched right."
"I am not? That's funny, isn't it?
You have made a brilliant remark,
haven't you? Now, laugh; go on, laugh.
Has it occurred to you to take a look
at my face. I'm punched right, all right,

It will be remembered that the members
of ■ the graduating . class at that time

abolish hazing. This, . according to ca
dets, was really the work of Col. Mills
and he in turn made some promises to

treat the hazing problem in the future
fj?t a h Ll CoL Mill 3 has not kept
faith with them. It is known that near
ly every cadet here has already written
to the congressmen and senators in his
respective state telling them that the
situation is critical, and asking that the
question, of discipline at the academy be
brought to the attention of the secre
tary of war. • Some sensational disclos
ures have-been made relating to the po
siton taken by Col. Mills with the cadet
corps when the committee from congress
was pushing its investigation so closely.
The graduating class men ; agreed.- to
urge the lower classes to agree to abol
ish hazing, but before doing so, it is al
leged, the classes all sent a joint com
mittee of twelve, three from each class,
to Col. Mills to ask how far he would
go toward preserving the traditions and
customs of the ■_ academy. When this

said to have agreed that he would al

No recognition until June.

of the superintendent in Camp "Wanabor
Upper class men relations with fourth
class men only officially necessary.
Class fights to be abandoned.
Only justification for fights are insults,
which should be resented on the spot.
These concessions by Col. Mills are at
the bottom of the present trouble at the
academy, for the cadets say he has failed
to keep his word.
The agreement also says:
"The following is our understanding of
our rights, according to your resolution
in regard to abolishing hazing and the
superintendent's interpretations of the
regulations of Jan. 19, 1901. The super
intendent refers to article 140 and 161 U.
S. M. A. Upper class men may chaff,
but not offend proper self-respect of
plebs." (This does not refer to concflt.)
Supt. Mills distinguished carefully be
tween chaffing and hazing. "Rat funerals
and such petty affairs," he said, "wnile
offenses shall not be considered hazing.
Fourth-class men may be asked to bring
a book or do such errands as may be
asked as a favor, but there shall be no
compulsory sweeping of rooms. -The
order of last camp in regard to bracing
of fourth-class men in and out of ranks
is the settled policy of my administration.
As no two men will construe orders the
same way, liberal construction will be
placed upon the regulations and every
man will be governed by his own con
science. We oppose anything- tending to
reduce the subordination of fourth-class
The last are understood to be the con
cessions made by Col. Mills to get tne
cadets to nominally abolish hazing and

Col. Mills returned to West Point to
night and said: "There are some things
about the situation at the academy t
present which I can neither a'Tirm oi

to discuss them yu) licly. All I can say
is there was a mutinous demonstration
