It is little less than a pitiful state of things which is presented to view in the immense strike of the steel, tin and Iron workers of the United States—pitiful in the suffering which is certain to ensue from it. and pitiful, too, in the utter dis regard which Is shown of the interests of the public by both the parties to the contest. Judged by the expressions which are heard on both sides, one would think that the consuming public did not exist. Each Is Intent on winning a victory by pulling the other side in a position where It will have to accept the terms offered. Neither thinks or speaks even indirectly of the public which both are supposed to be serving in carrying on the business in which they are engaged. Tomorrow night, unless some influence which does not work for strife is able to make itself felt, thousands of men will be Idle, and their families more or less the victims of the reduced incomes which will accordingly result. • Then. If it becomes necessary, we are tod, for the success of the strikers, men In other call ings will be taken from their work, and the industries dependent on their labor ■will be made to languish In the same way. The pubMc will be obliged to pay Increased prices, .for every commodity the production of which ls involved, and strife and bloodshed is almost inevitable before the end has been reached. The restive condition of feeling among n:ochanical operatives in other callings which will surely be called Into existence oiler the strike has proceeded a certain distance must, too, be taken into ac co int. We know from past experiences tl at that feeling soon becomes epldem'c, and that almost any result in the way of ness and Buffering is Table to be produced among its victims. One cannot help but feci the keenest regret for the unfortunate people who will suffer directly and Indirectly as the ni-uit of the .conditions thus called into Icing. The winter will soon open, with a pros] confronting every holder in the land of Increased prices for the necessaries of life. In every direction the people are threatened with the neces sity of buying in a constantly rising mar ket. The test of physical strength and endurance which Is involved will carry will-, its settlement the fortunes and well being of thousands of producers who. If the matter is allowed to go on as It has been going on since the trouble arose, Will be obliged to He idle. It is a shocking circumstance that there should be no Influence which might be looked to in this emergency to allay the passions which are so completely wrought upon, and make the parties Im mediately concerned take the welfare of the public, to some extent at least. into their calculations. is howison ri>i< /•:/>-.' It is not surprising, however disagree able it may be to both Admiral Howison end the general public, that his qualifica tions to pass upon the issues involved in the Schley court of Inquiry are called publicly In question. If Admiral Howl- Eon lias passed any opinion whatever on the merits of the controversy, he Is in the same position exactly as a talesman about to undergo examination who has been challenged as to his qualifications to s: on Hie case. Th-3 fact that Admiral Howison passed an opinion on the question does not of 11 self disqualify him. But it does put the friends of Admiral Schley 01. inquiry, and it is right that they as well as the general public should be advised of the slate of facta on which he made up his opinion and as to the general condition of his mind with reference to the subject' Of t-ie Inquiry, as well as with reference to the officer whose conduct is about to to subjected to official scrutiny.' There is prevailing -a profound suspicion as ti the purposes of the administration in the organization of this court. The Rod faith of those concerned is open to question. Enough evidence of the ex istence of. a conspiracy to ruin Schley has been forthcoming. Politics Is a dangerous Influence in such an inquiry as this; and it is very evident that on both sides the case is thoroughly saturat ed with politics. The mere statement that Admiral Howison is prejudiced counts for noth ing. Nobody believes that an honorable retired officer of the navy would degrade himself by being made the catspaw of any band of politicians, however in fluential. It is, moreover, to be remem bered that the honor of the navy itself ls involved in the controversy; and that no officer whose ambitions are not more pronounced or whose associations are not more markedly partisan as between the two men than those of Admiral Howisen are known to be could ever be misled into being a party to doing a great in justice to a fellow sailor. The public will stand no nonsense on either side in the conduct of this affair. Unless there is tangi ble evidence forthcoming of preju dice on the part of the newly selected member of the court such state ments must be cast aside as Insulting, and as tending to damage the cause of Rear Admiral Schley in the. eyes of the public. hat Admiral Howlson's opin ion may be of the relative merits ot Sampson and Schley as naval com manders cuts no figure. The only thing which should disqualify him, and which will disqualify him In the estimation of the public to pass on the case, is the circumstance that he is known or be lieved to entertain prejudice against Schley, or that he has expressed any opinion which indicates his belief in Schley's dishonor. In either event it is a public right and necessity that Ad miral Howison should withdraw from the case. - . NOT THE HANI) Of I'JtOriDENCE. Gen. Mac Arthur's report of his opera tions in the Philippines for the year end ing July, 1901, is a straightforward docu ment prepared rather with the pen of the soldier than that of the politician. It reveals the situation from the soldier's standpoint, and shows a marked contrast to the so-called military policy main tained under Otis. From Mac-Arthur's appearance in the chief command the operations against Agu'naldo's forces were conducted active ly and with a view to bringing the In surrection to as speedy a close as pos sible. Almost every event which trans pired during the administration of his predecessor tended to confirm the view that Otis' instructions did not look :to anything like a speedy ending of the struggle. It requires no particularly careful re trospect of the events to confirm the con clusion that the Ha-nna-McKinley admin istration utilized the situation created by the revolt of Agulnaldo for the manu facture of all possible political capital, and to give to the favored reta'ners of the administration a much needed chance to reap a harvest of coin from the con tracts incident to the carrying on of the existing situation. There is no longer any occasion for the maintenance of military conditions. There has not been since the capture of Agulnaldo by Gen.. Funston. The prin cipal aim of- the administration ad vocates and defenders will hereafter be to demonstrate the value of the posses sions in which »> we have Invested so ex tensively both in-the blood of our peo ple and in the—national-.treasure. Gen. Mac Arthur perhaps unconsciously contributes his share to this purpose in his report. The. dissertation on slavery as it is carried on In . the Philippines under the flag of the United States but outside of the constitution which Gen. Kobbe offers in the. report is really a touching affair. He undertakes to assure the American people that there is no such thing as slavery In the Philippines. At least he starts out with such an Idea in his mind; but his.effort is far from being sustained to the accomplishment of his purpose, with the result that, in prevailing parlance, he gives his case away very badly before ho gets through. Here is what Gen. Kobbe is represented as saying in Gen. MacArth-.r's report on the subject of slavery in the Philippines: "Slavery, as the term is usually under stood, does not exist among the Moros, and radical and - comprehensive measures to abolish it would at this time-be pre mature and ineffective. The slaves and masters belong to the same race and live on equal social terms. It has been Impossible to obtain any Information re* gardlng the number of slaves held any where." Here's where the general shows that as a politician he is not a success. Slav ery doesn't exist, he says; but, he adds, it would be unwise at this time to adopt radical measures io abolish it. The slaves and their masters live on equal social terms; but it is impossible to get information as to the number of slaves. The Imperialist crowd do not depend upon a blunt soldier like this gentleman to help them out of the situation in which they have placed the American people as flying their flag for the pro tection of slavery and polygamy in the Philippines, while destroying these twin social crimes by the use of force on this continent. No; Gen. Mac Arthur cannot be depended upon to help out his su periors on this score. A skilled casuist, not a cavalryman, is needed in the under taking of slurring over so disgraceful a situation. In the language of Gen. Mac- Arthur's report, "the conditions herein briefly recapitulated, have not been brought into existence wholly by the hand of Providence." A LITTLE KNOWLEDGE IS A DAN- GEROUS THING. The Minneapolis Journal, commenting on a recent paragraph in the Globe wherein the inconsistency of the Jour nal's criticism of Senator Tillman was pointed out, says: "In effect, it claims that it is no worse to disfranchise the negro than the Fili pino. Probably not, except that the col ored man has guaranteed to him the right under the constitution, while the Filipino has no such guaranty. But there is no inconsistency in the claim, of Sen ator Tillman, because the Filipinos are not denied the right of suffrage. On the cc r.trary, suffrage, is expressly extended to them on a variety of subjects, and it is the purpose of the government to ex tend the scope of suffrage as rapidly as possible." When Pope remarked that "A little knowledge is a dangerous thing," he evidently had in mind the newspaper writer who tackles a subject of .which he may have heard something, but of which he has no abiding knowledge. The Journal has evidently read something about the negro and the Filipino, but of the personal and constitutional rights of each, their comparative ability for self-government, and of the ethics un derlying the attempts to curtail their political privileges, it appears to be pro foundly ignorant. We say ignorant, be cause we cannot believe that a great journal, knowing the facts, would make such an egregious blunder. The state ment "that the colored man has the right to vote guaranteed to him under the. THE ST. PAUI, AxLOBK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 1901. constitution while the-Filipino." has ■ no such guaranty" is absolutely a new reading of that Immortal instrument. The Journal would confer a favor upon millions If it would point out the article, or section of the constitution which makes a distinction between the negro and the Filipino. If the Journal cannot do that, It would be equally Interesting to have pointed out the guarantee which the negro has under the constitution that does not apply with equal force to the Filipino or. any other inhabitant of the territory .of the United States. The Journal has evidently not kept pace with its own news, or it would have learned that in a case recently decided by the supreme court of the United States—a case which at the time caused some comment In the leading papers and which It commonly called the De Lima case, that at the time of the ratification of the treaty of Paris by the United States senate, the territory of Porto Rico and that of the Philippines became United States territory and subject to the* provisions of the constitution. The Journal ls perhaps not aware that In a subsequent case, passed upon ten minutes after the De Lima case, the su preme court decided that so far as the Imposition of taxes is concerned,, con gress might regard United States terri tory as foreign. Comments on the logic of this decision are not now necessary. The Journal evidently conceived the idea that this case applied to the Philippine Islands and to its citizens and inhabi tants in general. It is an error into which many uninformed have fallen. The constitutional guarantees of per sonal and political rights apply to the | inhabitants of the Philippine Islands with the same force and effect that they apply to South Carolina to Arizona, and to Minnesota. And any attempt to mod-" Tfy or curtail them, whether by the Southern Democracy or the Republican administration in the Philippines, will be equally unconstitutional and should receive the reprobation of all law-abiding citizens. If the constitution was not ! made to cover the cases of the ignorant blacks in the Southern states, the edu- j cated Hawallans and the Filipinos, then i let it be amended to exclude them and . all others who are deemed unfit to par take in their own government. The suggestion that the Filipino is not denied the right to suffrage, that it is extended to them on a variety of sub jects, is amusing, when read in conjunct tion with the preceding sentence. By what authority is this "suffrage extend-, ed to them on a variety of subjects?" Is it guaranteed by the constitution? No. According to the Journal, the constitution does not apply to that territory. By. what authority, then, are these Filipinos allowed to vote, on any thing? While not apologizing for Mr. Tillman, we will suggest to the Journal that t . it Is our opinion that the South would not object were the same treat ment . extended to the Southern negro that is meted out by the administration-•; to the Filipino. In communities' where there are no whites, we believe the South would be perfectly willing to let the negroes govern themselves. To,make it so plain that even the Journal can.under stand, we think that" if the South were Inhabited by negroes, the men who are now leading the tight for negro disfran chisement would not invade their ter ritory nor attempt to deprive them of the guarantees of the constitution. .With the Southerners it is largely a .matter, of political self-defense, with the admin istration it is a matter of unadulterated political aggression. The Filipinos are 1: as capable of self-government as are the negroes of the South.' Where, then, is the difference? While the Globe is not an advocate of negro disfranchisement, neither is it an advocate of Filipino disfranchisement. We advise the Journal before It enters Into another constitutional dissertation to post up on the facts. A little knowl edge is a dangerous thing. Little Canada is not growing much. That is just as well. Canada is about the right size now. If she were larger she would not be half so Interesting. Canada should not weep to be big like her Uncle Samuel. The British government Is to have an Investigation. We are not going to have the whole stage to ourselves during the Sampson-Schley opening. As we were about to remark England is to "have an Investigation of Dr. Koch. Judge Noyes, so it is reported, pleads not guilty to the numerous charges brought against him on account of his administration of justice at Nome. What was expected? Did anyone think for a moment that he would plead guilty? Minnesota is a pretty good state for lone females to come to, providing al ways, that they want to change their social status. There are here a hundred thousand, more or less, of males than females. Tell not the news in New Eng land. The Knights of Labor win invoke the law to force the attorney general to en force the anti-trust law. That Is a good idea. It will give several lawyers a job. It is a wonder they did not think of do ing something like that before the last election. Inasmuch as Prof. Triggs has ex pressed himself on hymns In general and upon Longfellow, and Holmes in particu lar. it would be interesting to have his opinion of Mapley Week. Mayhap he has not become sufficiently familiar with the works of Mapley. Mayor Black, of McKeesport, has brexk, en out in a new place. He affirms that all non-union men are thugs and dead beats. Listen to the choice language of this representative of McKeesport: "I will arrest them; ain't they lawless; ain't I got the right to arrest every sus picious man that comes here? They are all suspicious. They might be armed. Nearly all of them are thugs." -.^ Troubles never come singly. To him who starts down hill everything seems greased for the occasion. Disasters like wolves travel in packs. As if the Boer war, the trouble in China', the threatened Invasion of India and the threatened in dustrial depression at home were not enough, England has been Invaded by the mosquito. Let us see, when Israel was In bondage was not Egypt overrun with lice? ' The wife, son, and daughter of a preacher at Findrey, Ohio, left the old man the other night. to go to Chicago to give the yonng i^y a chance to go on -the stage. The preacher Is broken heart ed. This Is a case for the Rev. Newell Dwight Hillis. He' should refuse to at tend another theater while this girl is preparing for thejstage. "• How can he while the "sobs of her father are thun dering in his ears/ The A. P. A.'s 1' will now be in high feather. It Is reported that certain pub lic documents contain evidence of the do ings of the Philippine friars, the account of which would bring the red blood to the cheek of Boccaccio, and that you know, is putting it pretty strong. The report also says that efforts are being made to keep the documents out of sight. Now that is useless should the A. P. A.'s get a smell of them. BBA'ZIL NEEDS MAGHINEBY. Field for Yankee Manufacturer)! in South American Republic. NEW YORK, Aug. 9.-J. S. Mello, of Sano Paulo, Brazil, a relative of Presi dent Manccl Ftrraz de Campos Salles, of Brazil, has just sailed for Rio de Janeiro on the steamer Hevlius. Mr. Mello is a representative of the Agricultural Asso ciation of Brazil, in the interest of which he made an extensive tour of this coun try. His purpose principally was to pur chase agricultural machinery for use on the coffee plantations. The planters, he said, are greatly in need of improved implements, particularly for the .cleaning and weeding of coffee. Moder sugar ma chinery is also needed. "I have purchased many thousand dol lars' worth of American machinery," said Mr. Mello. "Some of the machines have never been seen in Brazil. The planters, who already do a large business with the United States, desire to increase their trade with this country. There is, how ever, a serious drawback to this. It is the absence of an American bank in Brazil. The establishment of an Ameri can bank in Brazil would increase trade with the United States tnree fold." THE; COMMUNE AGAIN. William Trant in August Century On the following morning, Wednesday, I again sained forth. The first sound that ten upon my ear was "Vive la Ligne'" and turning round the corner of myTTweli ing place were tho soldiers of the line who for two hours had advanced in sin gle Lie along the Rue St. Honor. . keeping close to the houses, thereby finding shel ter from the mitraille and was poured against them from a barricade a little farther on. These bluecoats moved thus along this narrow street and down that passage, convolving like a huge serpent fastening on the city. Everywhere they went they were received with cheers he tricolor was hoisted out of the windows of the great shops, that had been closed during the last two months After the in fantry came batteries of artilery, and aft er these squadrons of cavalry. A halt was made at the spot (above indicated! whore I was standing, and the commanding offi cer a young fellow, smoked a cigarette and consulted a plan of instructions. Just then two of his men dragged toward him a person who, the crowd said, was a com, munist. "Fusillez-le!" cried out the throng and the officer (I was ' standing close to him) said "Oui, fusillez.lcVr I (I little -thought that before long I should hear the same command given as regards myself.) in less time than is occupied in recording the fact, the poor wretch whs dragged a few yards away; ere of the me. put. the muzzle of his chassepot .under neath the victim's skull, the barrel along his back; the other soldier stooped and pulled the trigger; a report, a smoke a groan, and" with protests of innocence on his lips the soul of the poor victim passed away. A man standing at the corner of a street heard two officers talking of the bravery of the troops.. "Yes," said the loiterer if. your men had fought like that against the Prussians, all this would not have happened.", The officer pulled--out mis pistol and shot him. "Our army has be haved heroically," said M. Thiers "Wo execute with the law and by the law." 1 'Where's your boasted liberty?," I askod /•of a friend, a Frenchman. Taking off his shoe, he searched the inside of it very minutely and then said, "It has Keen there | for the lost two months, but T think it is ! lost now." •■ ■ The method of formal execution by young cigarette-smoking colonels, as above indicated." was the usual kind of execution. The honor of a firing party was reserved for a few persons of dis tinction, such,as Milliere, who had resign ed his seat as deputy for Paris in the national asse-mblyi; to become a member of the commune. 'He was placed In front of the Pantheon, and. with arm raised, cried, "Vive le .. peuple!" There was a roll of musketry, a murmur, and he was dead. As I was walking away from the sad spectacle I met Air. Holt White, of the Pall Mall Gazette, who said to me: "I am sorry I am too late. I wanted to see Milliere. People say he looks so much like Jesus Christ." We then wit nessed a sight that made us both shud der. Up to the previous day the fight had been going on beneath a glorious sun and a cloudless sky. I was astonish ed to find how few traces .of carnage were to be seen in the streets. The rea son was that the sunshine had dried the blood and it chad become covered with a concealing layer of fine dust. Now, however, there had been showers of rain, and the effect was as if the very stones of the street were bleeding afresh. Near the Pantheon, at a spot where several men had been shot, blood was trickling in sluggish streams to the gutter. Sol diers, fatigued with the day's massacre, reposed on the wet pavement, using it also as a dining table. We saw them eating raw meat, which they were too fatigued to remove from the streams of blood that trickled about it— sorry banquet for M. Thiers's "heroes!" To detail .what I saw during the rest of the fighting would be to repeat in effect what is above written. Every where in the streets dead bodies were ly ing about. There were no wounded, for the troops gave no quarter... In ever/ direction the work of death and destruc tion went on; the human brute unchain ed, the imbecile wrath, the mad fury of man devouring his brother man. r>--:'. — Fortune. Detroit Journal.

Rowley to two redemp tion orders, one for $112.90 and the other for J154.25. County Attorney Kane.' how ever, stated to the court that he did not care to proceed in these cases at pres ent, as he preferred to bring them di rectly before the grand jury.
