the HESULTING si ir/:iii.\<:.
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
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. - .
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
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
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."
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
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.
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.

That is just as well. Canada is about

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."

On the following morning, Wednesday,

close to the houses, thereby finding shel

against them from a barricade a little

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.

- Walter B. Bourne, former deputy

lice court yesterday afternoon to answer
to two additional charges of forgery In
which he was accused of forging the
name of A. W. 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. He was of
the opinion that Bourne was already
held to the grand jury on sufficient
charges, and he did not care to show
up the state's case on the others yet.
Judge Hlne allowed these cases to be
dismissed, and Bourne was taken back to
jail by the sheriff. The three charges on
which Bourne is held to the grand jury
are: Grand larceny in the first degree,
forgery In the second^ degree and falsely
auditing a certificate of redemption. '':':*
