A sn.i:.\l>ll> IDEA.
There is a great deal of good sense in
the suggestion made by the commander
at Fort - telling, Lieut. Col. Quinton. re
garding the canteen and its abolishment.
Indeed it would not be too much to say
tl at Col. Quinton's remarks represent the
broadest and most intelligent proposal
jet made growing out of the canteen
It is most just to the author of the
suggestion that it should be stated in his
own language. It is as follows:
7"* * * I'd like to see a comfortable
two-story building here that would serve
both as a club house and a drill hall.
One story could be made a place for so
cial recreation. The men could have a
reading room with newspapers, maga
zines and books on file.. In another room
they could have all proper games. Else
w.here they could get soft drinks and
light lunches. A cook should be on hand
to seive tea, coffee and prepare the food.
The post ..change should be included,
supplying all the variety of small arti
cles that the men need, or think they
need. The charges for everything should
be as they are now in the exchanges,
that Is, merely enough to cover the
It is hard to understand why
such a sensible solution of the, canteen
question has not been suggested before.
That It is a solution of that difflulty,
and that the proposed plan would be in
the highest measure promotive of the
welfare of the listed men, no one will
question who has even the most super
ficial knowledge of their habits and as
Col. Quinton in his statement calls "at
tention to the fact that there Is no place
on the reservation at which the men can
spend their leisure hours agreeably, and
that with the approach of the cold
weather the condition in that respect
will grow worse. In such a situation
lt is not at all surprising that the.men
will seek outside the post the opportuni
ties of enjoyment which are denied them
within. Taking a few hundred men in
constant daily association with each
other, with absolutely nothing to oc- I
cupy their leisure hours, it is against
human nature that they should not seek !
the forms of relaxation which are. of
fered to. them outside when off duty.
With such a place of rendezvous at
their disposal, the time which must ne.
e^^arily hang heavily on their hands can
be passed pleasantly and profitably by
them. The opportunities for self-im
provement which such a club house will
offer are known to every man who in
his youth has cultivated or sought such
places of recreation. There is the
amplest reason to believe that such a
club house would be resorted to by every
man while off duty, and there would ac
cordingly be- fewer men disposed to
drink. There would be many better sol
diers and better men as the result, and
the entire military service of the United
Slates would soon feel the beneficent 111
--nuence of the post club house.
if those who .have set themselves
the abolition of the canteen, as
well as those who have opposed that
undertaking, would concern themselves
actively In the organization of such a
movement, they would be rendering to
the enlisted soldier a service which. is
not to be measured by the limited stand
ard of the good or the evil which ensues
from the establishment of the canteen or
SPELLIXO IX HIGH SCHOOL.
The public thanks are due Prof. Robin
son of the high "school for the work he
has. done and is doing in behalf of good
orthography among" our public school pu
pils. . - . ; ;.:-.
From the standpoint of . the. scientific
pedagogue the matter of putting the let
ters of words together in 7 the accepted
manner may itself be of but comparative
l.v little moment. Looked at by the ordi
nary man of the world the young man
or woman who cannot write words cor
rectly is a mere dunce, and in business
life suffers from a severe handicap, no
matter what his proficiency may be in
other directions. . -
The fault of bad spelling, is one which
has been found often with the public
school pupils. The scholastic training.in
that direction is far less rigid under !
modern methods of instruction than 7in/
the past, and the.result is -made quite
generally plain even among educated per
sons. There are far fewer "good spellers
today than, for instance, in the days whe n
the spelling bee was something of a "social
institution in this country. ' :
The/ pupils of the St." Paul common
schools have ' not been .'allowed to disre
gard their spelling without having to
bear the consequences.. It: is a' fact which
should deeply impress individual teachers
and which is beyond denial, that business
men in this city have shown generally
an unwillingness to hire public school
pupils for clerical work owing in great
measure ;"to their inability to spoil . or .
rectly. With the policy being j_'>rs_cd
by Prof., Robinson in op»-ra:ir": lot some
time to come, this fault will no lunger
■7 ■■■'-.-!" ■ "\" .-■'
be found and the public school scholar
will be correspondingly benefited.
If the St. Paul, high school principal
wore to 'a supplement" his,, present good
•work by. inaugurating a crusade . for
correct grammatical . construction. the
Globe believes that the good*.results
would be inestimable. It .is; not right
that any boy or girl should. pass or.even
reach the eighth grade who Ms capable
of making a serious grammatical blun
der' in the construction, of "a 7 sentence.
Vet. it is hardly ah overstatement of
the case..to suggest that for every hoy
and girl passing into '-. the high school
who is free from -that charge there are
three who are: not. -
The well-defined line of demarcation es
tablished by the world between ignor
ance and education is drawn at the
point of the ability or inability of a man
or woman to speak and write . with
grammatical correctness. A grammatical
blunder in a personal letter is to the cul
tivated" reader an unpardonable thing, it
ought not to be a possibility In the case
of any man or woman who has gone to
high school; and it need not be and will
not be with his pupils If "Prof. Robinson
will carry his present efforts in the di
rection of an " improved" orthography
among high school children to its log
ical and inevitable ending.

THE ftUXXERS coxe. 7 J
The concurrence of the two branches of
the council in the movement for the do
ing away With the hotel; runner nuisance
will .be regarded with pleasure by the
business community. The action taken
has been made necessary by; the. evils
which have .been so long in existence and
which were injuring the city's reputation
with the traveling public. In a manner
it was a mild form of the evils which"at
tended the sojourner of the city three
or four years ago, when the confidence
man was so generally in evidence that
it required-the stranger to keep his wits
with him and keep away from strange ■
associations if he desired to avoid a hold
up. " 777:/.
There can be no reasonable doubt that
the acting mayor, Dr. Schiffmann, will
sustain the action of the council. The
demand of the business community was
decisive on the subject,", and all possi
bility of compromise was rendered "- im
practicable by the utter disregard shown
by the . runners < themselves '■'- and the
houses which ' they represented of the
several warnings which they received to
mend their ways. The evil which has
thus been brought to a close was a sub*
ject of steady complaint for a great
number of years;' and the frequency of
the appearance of one or -other of the
runners in' the police court showed that
no temporary measure would be ade
quate.- _ '-'-'-•- ry;-
Hereafter it is reasonably assured that
the traveler, in the course of his
journey past St. Paul, or during his tem
porary visit to the city, will be granted
immunity from the offensive importuni
ties and the " questionable purposes .of
those men. - ■-

XOT EXACTLY AX7, AVTHOIiITY/
So far as the Monroe doctrine' is con
cerned, it seems a little strange for the
Spectator to be talking about England
' accepting" that doctrine. England has
accepted the Monroe doctrine and with
it has admitted our right to protest
against European, encroachments upon
this hemisphere, as in : the case of the
Venezuelan" boundary dispute, which,
alter a considerable amount of biuster,
she consented to lefer -to an arbitration
tribunal for settlement.—Minneapolis
England accepted the Monroe doctrine
long before the Venezuela imbroglio. She
acquiesced in -its principles at the time
of its inception, and later -solemnly ac
knowledged Its binding force as to Cen
tral America in the .Clayton-Bulwer
trtaty. The dispute over the Venezuela
boundary had nothing, to do with the
Monroe doctrine.—St. Paul Globe. " "
Oh, yes, England accepted the Monroe
doctiine three-quarters of a :century ago.
ft is not affirmed that she did so as a
result of the Venezuelan affair..;: That
was only an incident of* her recognition,
for in recognizing the legitimacy of our
protest against encroachment, on -Vene
zuelan territory, she recognized the con
tinued validity of the Monroe . doctrine.
You know precious little about the Mon
roe doctrine. Dear -Globe, if ■ you i say
the Venezuelan boundary dispute had
"nothing to do.- with it." The extensive
grasp on "Venezuelan territory by Great
Britain was just such . "oppression" as
was contemplated by the Monroe doctrine
as not to be tolerated on this hemis
v. The above from our esteemed contem
porary deserves attention because it is a
fair sample of the prevailing Ignorance
of the origin and of the diplomatic prin
ciples involved "in . what we have been
wont to call the Monroe. doctrine.
Whether the Globe knows "precious
little about the Monroe doctrine"or
not is a matter for the public to de
termine. - Although comparisons are
sometimes. odious, we are constrained .-to
remark that should "anyone ..seek either
a learned "or a logical discussion of eco
nomic or diplomatic questions in the edi
torial columns of the Journal, lie would
meet with a sore disappointment., * .
The Journal, in Its assumption that
England admitted the controlling force
of 'the Monroe. doctrine, _ when it. agreed
to submit the Venezuelan boundary dis
pute to arbitration, fell into an error that
can only be explained on the.ground
of a total lack of information regarding
the diplomatic correspondence which
passed between the state department and
the British foreign office, previous to the
agreement to submit the controversy, to
a court of arbitration.^JThe Journal has
evidently taken as an authoritative enun.
ciation "of the? Monroe doctrine, the
celebrated message of Grover Cleveland
addressed to congress,- Dec. -• 17,; 1805,. and
i which led to the appointment of the court
of arbitration to settle the Venezuelan
boundary dispute.- England pointed out
with a clearness of logic, the force "of-,
which .- the most rampant ; Jingoes were
compelled to admit, - the ' utter : absurdlty
"-jf the. American contentions that the
Monroe doctrine was ".anjSacknowledged
I tenet of international: law, and that it :
could be applied to the boundary dis-'
I pate between any European nation hold
ing possession>on 'this' continent and
the adjoining sovereignty. In his an
nual message to, congress _ Dec.. 2, IS."T>,
even Mr. Cleveland "said: ''Considering
j the disparity, of strength, of ""Great Brit
; sin and Venezuela,- -the.-.territorial > dis-
pine betWeen 'them' can be", reasonably;
~."-<uie*rrc'nly ..by', friendly and Impartial'
arbitration and that a. resort to:such*_ ar-

bitration ; should include the £ whole -con-- -
troversy." When England.neglected to
accept the advice of the United States on
the lines.above indicated, it became con
venient to stretch the Monroe doctrine to
cover a case of territorial dispute. This
Cleveland did to the great satisfaction
of the country, but with the necessary
sacrifice of all diplomatic' logic. 7-' It
was perhaps.the proper thing to do, but
there! should have been no attempt to
hide behind the. Monroe, doctrine. The
' president's message and" the - action tak
en^ en 7it was a ' national 7 bluff without
precedent, but with a unanimous public
sentiment behind it. It should be "' known
in history as the "Cleveland doctrine"—
the doctrine that a strong nation has a
right to. interfere in a diplomatic dis
pute In favor of a weak nation, demand
ing justice by arbitration. - • 7;
To affirm that England 7"acquiesced in
this new- interpretation 7of - the Monroe
doctrine,- *by "agreeing to arbitrate * the
Venezuelan dispute is not .only a pure
assumption, but is disproved by the en
tire diplomatic record of the case.
That there was no' attempt on the part
of Great .Britain'-to'" extend her. sys
tem in this hemisphere" at the"expense
of Venezuela, is abundantly : proved* by
the award of the court of;- arbitration
which adjusted the .'-'boundary, substan
tially along, the lines "contended r for by
Great Britain. -77:.:^7 -.77 77 7-/v7:
The Journal is no doubt familiar with
the message of President Monroe to'con
gress, Dec. 2, 1823,. wherein, after refer
ring to the proposition of the Holy Al
liance :to interfere in behalf of": Spain.-.to
reconquer her American ■-;possessions,£ho

never taken any - part",7 nor does It com

movements in this hemisphere we are, of
necessity, - more immediately-connected,
and by causes which must be"obvious.to
all enlightened and impartial observers.
The' political system of the allied powers'*
is essentially "different in this .'respect
from that of America. The 'difference
proceeds from that which exists in their
■ respective governments. _*. *:;■*■ We. owe •
it, therefore, to candor and to the amica

The request of Admiral Sampson to be
allowed" to enter the Schley court of In.
quiry as a participant under the general
provisions of the ~ precept calling the
court, ought to have been - granted. "No
matter how this investigation be masked
it is to all intents a contest between Ad
miral Sampson and Admiral Schley. The
conduct - of" Admiral Sampson must of.
necessity become in part, an item' of
controversy, because he was the rank
ing officer during the time when the rep
rehensible acts were alleged to have been
committed.. In., the minds of the people
he is the real accuser of Admiral Schley. •
If Admiral Schley should be exonerated -
by this court, the very act will condemn':
Sampson, and without a "hearing. Lt is
eminently just, therefore, . that Sampsonj
be made a party to this, investigation and;
be given counsel to Watch his interests. •_
A number -of situations will .be de
veloped which will show Sampson. guilty ..
of the same acts" or lack of judgment of!
which Admiral Schley is accused. The
investigation as it is constituted now is
supposed to be 'an" impartial inquiry by
the department into the conduct of an
officer, but instead it has been so manipu
lated that, It has become a prosecution by
the department with the complaining wit
ness, Admiral Sampson, "not in court.
It will save time and enable the court
and-country to get ■- at the facts much
more readily if the - case be - placed on '■
its actual basis—Sampson vs. Schley. Let '
both be represented by the best of coun
sel and let the fight be to a finish." it Is
the only r way to settle the controversy.

THE MURDERER BREAKS DOWN
Collapsed Co m „, and Shrieked
in Terror at Sight of Stone
Wall* of His Last Dwell
ing on Earth.
AUBURN, N. V.. Sept. 27.-Czol-o__
President McKinley's murdered X
custody of Sheriff Caldwell, of Erft
County and twenty-one deputies, arrived
in Auburn at 3:15 a. m. The prison Is
only MbOU*K fifty ' yards from the depot.
Awaiting the arrival of the train there
was a crowd of about 200 people. Either
for fear, of the crowd, which was not
very demonstrative, or from sight of "he
prison, Czolgosz's legs gave out and two
deputy sheriffs were compelled to practi
call carry the man Into the prison. In
side the gates his condition became
worse and lie was dragged up the stairs
and into the main hall. He was placed
In a sitting posture on the bench while
the handcuffs were being removed, but
he fell over and moaned and groaned
evincing the most abject terror. As soon
■as the -handcuffs Were unlocked the man
was dragged into the principal"keeper's
•office. As in the case of all prisoners.,
the officers Immediately .proceeded to
strip him and put on a new suit or
clothing. • During this operation Czol
gosz cried and'yelled, making the prison
corridors echo with evidence of his ter
ror. The prison physician. Dr. John
Germ, examined the man and ordered his
removal to the cell in the condemned
row, which he will occupy until in- is
taken to the electric chair. The doctor
declared that the' man was suffering
from fright and terror, but said that
he was shamming to some extent.
The collapse of the murderer was a
surprise to everyone. En route from
Buffalo he showed no Indication of break
ing down. He ate heartily of sandwichc.*
and smoked cigars when not eating. He
talked some and expressed regret for his
"I am especially sorry for Mrs. _*c-
Kinley-!'. He. reiterated his former state
ment that he had had no accomplices and
declared that he never had heard of the
mart under arrest in St."' Louis, who
claimed to have tied the handkerchief
over his hand, concealing the pistol with
which the president was shot. He says
the handkerchief was not tied. He went
behind the-Temple of Music, arrahg.d
the handkerchief so as to hide the weap
on and. then took his place in the crowd.
To Jailer Mitchell he sent this message
to his father:
"Tell him I'm sorry I left such a nil
name for him."
Czolgosz was in normal condition this
afternoon and seemed to have fully re
covered from his collapse. There are
five cells for condemned men in the pris
on and Czolgosz was placed in the only
vacant cell in the row he occupies.
I Guards are constantly on watch to guard
j against an -attempt on Czolgosz's part to
j commit suicide, two more guards have
j Veen added and one will constantly, sit in
front of Czolgosz's cell and will have a
key so that any attempt at self-destruc
tion may be easily frustrated.
