Kenny, Francisco Kraft hunter, who t In the, court room hy one, of ftltig tribes, gives a very human Hon of how often the unexpeet- ns up to accomplish what per- cy and a good rase cannot ao- Ish. It appears that before the) bul)e.t was lodged In Mr. Heney's ths people of Ran Francisco had to tire of graft hunting and ed for a period of rest; they ready to retire from the task of nlng the city for the sake of Iglns what had not been achieved. JJajH of the shot which was fired I Mr. Ileney says: "In Itself Jnot much except In so far as Arns me; but you would be sur Jto know how that act roused lent folk of Pan Francisco and lllzed the sentiment behind me. I I was lying with the doctors Ig for the bullet more good was rht behind the cause that I have I working for than could have wrought In any other way." In words It took a catastrophe to inn the Interest of the people of 'aclfio const city In the task of cal house cleaning. The cause was not sufficient to keep their uslasm and their determination se. frightful catastrophe' In Southern !y, which In Its horrors outruns 'ythlng known to Christian clvlllua- n, has suddenly turned the ships of "war the of all nations into carriers for relief of, the distressed. They are being driven through the waters, not. for the purpose of catching an enemy unawares, but to succor to thn needs of a people fearfully stricken. Soldiers reach for their guns, not for the purpose of killing, hut for the purpose of saving. All of the imple ments of cruel war have become tho tools of blessed protection and so thn latter have become marvellously duplicated and in turn reinforced hy tho money of every nation. The threat of another has lost its interest and the handclasp has become uni versal. The spirit of human brother hood has been awakened, not by the knowledge all men have of the folly of controversy, but by snlpmri inul dreadful adversity. What a pity It Is that ono must see his brother In dim distress before one Is ready to rush to his relief. Truly It Is the people. In the world who are queer. A CHANCFi FOU CO-OPRTIATIOW. The suggestion was made in a recent Issue of Collier's Weekly that some or ganised arrangement be perfected Among the editors of the country, whereby, upon a certain stated day, or totter for a certain stated number of days, they all should combine to train their wordy-thunder upon some very Important topic, which is of vital inter est from Maine to California. Among the topics which Collier's sug gests for such united treatment is the great tuberculosis problem. Certainly much good could he accomplished worn a countrywide, agitation urged upon that subject. Tho proposition Is a worthy one so long as there cunnot possibly be any difference of opinion as to the topics proposed. Probably every up-to-date paper In the country would ifccheartily willing lo enter Into tho plan. Hut thl,s Is a suggest Ion which Is worthy of further development. There "Vuifcr are problems, such as tuberculosis, which concern the whole country, but there are others which concern Individ ual sections of the country. Press co operation along the latter lines could be made comparatively ns effectual, A movement of some momout lias been In progress In Huston Which now promises big results. Tt Is to cnlinlii-! ote in the consolidation of tho llostnti j Chnmher of Commerce and the Huston Merchants association, Roma time since the Boston Hoard of Trade was combined with the latter, so that the newly perfected organization will be most powerful, having a membership of over 2,n(K) Individuals, firms and cor porations. This Is such a. movement as we have long Imped fur between tho present Chamber of Commerce and Ruslness Men's association of New Ha ven. It looks now as If iho latter or ganization might he brought about lo cally before long. Hut this excellent work of consolidating the business In terests should keep right on. , There Is a general belief today that. New England stnnd today upon the threshold of a much larger usefulness. If It Is, New F.nglnnd must be united. The recent New Kngland governors' re sources conference was one excellent example of thn sort of sectional co operation so much needed. An or ganization which would Include all the business and commercial interests of the whole section, not merely those of certain cllles here and there In tills pectlon, is not too much to ask. Such a powerful organization might well be unitedly demanded hy the pros of New Kngland along lines similar to those Collier's Weekly suggests. Rui'h an organization could do much to advance our district along the highway to In creased prosperity. The south Is com ing into Its own, Mr Taft tells us; we know of the booms of the west. What of the east, and more especially of Now Kngland? Dit. inni'KirM hovsitivkm-".. It Is an Interesting letter which lias hoeu brought to light from the late AVIlllam n. Harper, the militant, pres ident of the Chicago university. It would probably never have seen the light of day had It not been for the statement made by John D. Rockefel ler that Dr. Harper never dlsciisse.' with him specifically matters of il nance connected with tho university. It sppears that Dr. Harper was forced, when made president of the Chicago university, to divert his atten tion from Intellectual underla kings to those having in mind the raising of money. It was not an agreeable task which was set him but ho applied himself to It with his characteristic energy. It Is quite likely, too, that his success In that linn was a surprise to him. It brought him suddenly face to face with unsuspected talents. He nevertheless Inwardly resente'd the ex perience, not that he underestimated the Importance of the task, but that It gave others a totally wrong Idea or his character. He wrote In the letter now made public for the first time: "Chi cago and the northwest think of me as a money getter, and that is the rep utation I have everywhere, a reputa tion which Is hardly fair In view of my antipathy for this kind f work and my love for the other" (the intel lectual work). We credit l'r. Harper with no such commonplaco understanding of the average human measurement of men as to suggest that he did not realize. why his reputation In Chicago and the northwest was that of a money getter, while resenting It. His success in that line was Immense, and there. Is noth ing men In general so quickly appre ciate and applaud as the ability to mass thn dollars. They understand that, for It Is money that they are themselves after; It Is what their dally labor spells to them. Higher Intel lectual attainments are necessarily In most Instances beyond their reach. Had Mr. Harper devoted his life lo money pursuits his services would have been In great demand and would have h"cn valued highly. Had he con fined his efforts to Intellectual un dertakings his reputation would have been restricted and hl.s Income con siderably reduced. Thn Harper letter Is, however, a. suggestive huma.n document. It sllin ulii.tcs one's Imagination and sets one to wondering If, after all, any one of lis knows as much about his compan ions as hn thinks he does. There Is always the doubt Hint, tho real depth of character, emollons and suscepti bilities have not been sounded. MUNICH A I, ".irt'KIIAKIXR.' It Is very seldom that we feel called upon to take exception to thn uni formly excellent editorial views of our esteemed contemporary, The Spring field Republican. Wo propose to do so now only us regards a certain opinion which It has expressed In connection with tho present startling exposures In Pittsburg. Thn Republican calls attention to the enormity of the bribery scandals; It. makes mention of the thorough way In which the newspapers of the coun try treat of them at length In their news columns; but It says it has ob served a very noticeable tendency not to comment upon those (nuts exee.pl. in a very casual way In the editorial col umns. .It says: "The fuels are printed with professional tilaerlly, but. com ment is thus far lacking.

Wo still believe that the New York Tribune "hit tho nail on the head when It recently said: "Everywhere them Is a realization that local gov ernment, particularly municipal gov ernment, Is the pressing problem of the nation, demanding solution ss no other problem docs. Municipal gov ernment lags sadly behind In the gen- j oral advance, and the public Is pain- j fully conscious of Us failures. Its nt- I tention is upon tun meat government problem as never before." In many ways Pittsburg might, well be envied by many of our municipalities, rather than commiserated. As a result of the present investigations Pittsburg will undoubtedly be fur better off. Un doubtedly as regn tlfihle conditions ex ist In other American cities, where the citizens have not bad tho good fortune to bo able, to expose them In the same way. Next summer It Is proposed to ask many artists throughout the country to submit designs for next year's Red Cross Christmas stamp. Although It Is Iho Idea behind the stamp and not Its appearance which has made It so pop. ulnr, Its design Is of some Importance. While Howard Pyle's design has been excellent, n. change might prove Inter esting. It would at least preclude the use of left over 1fiuS stamps. A certain minister In Ihe Windy Clly bus wit lil that hell Is no worse Ihan Chicago. A writer in Harper's Weekly says: "I.H'e has become cheaper In New York than In the wildest western min ing camp."

A current, magnzine Suggests that there Is a fortune In store for thn man who first. Invents a contrivance, where in lea, coffee and cocoa can all bn tniido at thn snnio time. That Is a good Idea.
