But it does not follow that be spoke for tho McKinley adajinistra tion or that his message has any more significance than a reiteration of his own long timo views. The President is not by nature a sympathizer with thieves but be does rot go out of his way to fight them.

The Philosophy of Democracy. The New Vork Tribune, which in Horace Greeley's time was so powerful u ehamnion of negro enfranchise ment can hardly repress its indigna tin t the idea of such an extension to the otbor peoples of color that hav en-a under our rule. Tie experience Hamuli, it declares, has conclu lively nroved "the folly of establish in a a territorial government with practically universal suffrage among untrained to the exercise of political power" with all the shanoe it gives to "inoompetont legislators and mischief-making demagogues, anu 't sounds the warning as to tne Philinninesi and ami West Indies ir-- thusly : Tf ;a tt, firat st.en that count?. 1, -. mm-. r . fill,,., no ara Drum' to DBV6 Mil "1 these peoples in tuir ignorance ana unfitness ot tor American tiuwuamj introduced into our electorate and made instruments of unscrupulous ,,r, tn mln nsj. nr we are going once and for all to establish the principle that the union of sttes in an a men i iinni and a continental uiii.j and that its character is not to ne changed by the incorporation not our tizensbipof every semi eivuizej or barbarous tribe which may chance at m timn to emie under our eoter .innti The inhabitants of Hawaii .ire iustlv entitled to such measure of self govercmnnt as tbey show thev can wisely use, but cm- urasa canr.nt aiura 10 bmuhmm. n nmn ete autH(.ritV. particularly in view of their aeuionsiraiBu uvm guardianship. If this is tree of Hawaii and the Philippines, it was even more true of nur rerroBS who at the cloae of the war were far inferior in point of od ucation and every other requirement for self rule to the feople of these is lands that will rank very well as re- ards education with the average white peoples of the world. Tbe Trihur.n thirtv odd years ago was thundering the contrary doctrine fram the standpoint of the philosophy of democracy. The negro, it declared must have the ballot to protect him selfthere was no other way to save bim from being forced back to vir tual slavery and from being subject to all sorts of abuses and robberies at the bands of men having unlimited and unchecked power over him. This was true, and it was alsj trte, as the Tribune well argued then, that the only way to train and and tit any peo ple for self rule was to set them at it, that the great virtue of Democracy was that it contained within itself the chance for remedy for its own evil3 and short comings, not that Bny people ever could b3 entirely fit for it, cot that it would produce ideal government, or ever bad done so even among ourselves, but that taking into account its poteooies of development Bnd uplifting, it was on the whole the best government any people could have, wherever situated or however circumstanced. To deny all this row is simply to declare that the country was all wrong on the negro question after tbe war to "camp on southern ground" as er-Secretary Herbert well declares in tho article quoted else where. The Tribune's presei.t argument is unanswerable es an indictment of the policy of annexation of distant terri tories and peoples that we are cot will ing and cannot afford to receive upon an equality with ourselves. The mean ing of it all is simply that we ought to let them alono and leave them to work out their own destiny, on the democratic or any other basis they chose, which they can do without in jury to ua and without any responsi bility on our part for either tbeir successes or failures. And the prac tical fact, attested by all human his tory, is that they can do it better in dependence on themselves than rnder any foreign and alien guardianship. An article by Henry R Marshall in the July International Journal nf Htnics well presents toe reason on moral Bnd physical grounds why this is so, and as a matter of strict science combats the idea that mankind lives under an iron law of nature which mmands the individual to crowd and crush and extinguish bis weaker fellows. The law of struggle and sur vival of fittest, as even Darwin icti- mated, ends where reason begins. Mr Marshall likens individuals and differ ent peoples in tbe interracaial ori;aniz ation to the elementary parts of the pdividual animal, each expressing its own instinctive tecdency and yet all together producing the activites of tbe whole organism, where it Nil: to do so death or naralvsis results. X r The announcement from Maine that the strict enforce.xent of the prohibit ing law has been made a part of the Kepuhlican program of the state may widl be receive! wita incredulity. Po litical organizations are not apt to de liberately resolve on suicide and that in what it would mean to drive the rum selling element out of the party.

It is thus fiat the party has so waxed in Htrengtl of late even more than the Bryan folly of the Democracy would have helped it to do. It is rather a delicate onerat ion to bold the felty of both the rum and the prohioitory element t the same tiaie, and prob ably all the promise above referred to means, is that it is recognized taal tbe difficulty is seen f be increasing, and ho more preterse of law enforce ment is necvss-iry : but we mgy he -sore thst it will not go to the extent of really alienBtirg ihe liquor d.-al-ers.

He says : Tbe argument in favor of allowing marriaire with a deceased wife'a sis ter, bated on the supposed practical advantages of such an arrangement, seems to me entirely fallacious What so natural, it is asked, as for an aunt to cate for a-.d play a mother's part to her sister's children, in whom she will have a peculiar interest? The ar gument, fails to consider that this ar rangement, in itself most antirral and desirable, will in many cases be ren- Oerea impracticable, if tne wife a sister is regarded as ber possible suc cessor. Sbo can more rcaoily he tbe guardian of her sister's children when she stand in no other relation to them or to their father. To permit a man to marry bis wife's sister is to abolish ber privileged position as bis sister-iii law. Tre recognition of re lationships of affinity witDin wbich marriage is forbidden is seen by this instance to lie co mere arbitrary nr technical theory, but to Lave a dis tinctly practical bearing on tne pur ity and the intimacy of intercourse between members of a faiuilv.

Generally speaking it would bo thought that agricul ture partakes but little of this in crease of the productiveness of labor, but a rpnrt from the agricultural department at Washington, prepared by Geo K Holmes of the statistical division, shows even this ide con tains much of error. Since 1ST).) be snows that the time of human labor required to produej a bushel of wheat including wowing, hamwirtr. cut ting, threshing and winnowing, bas by tbe use of machinery decreased from three hours and tbren minute. to ten minutes, and that for a bushel of corn from four hours and 31 min utes to 41 minutes or in other words the effectivenes of labor is miiltir,liH eiebteen-fold in one case and seven fold in tbe other. This is cf course in the west, where farm macbinrry is most used. If the old met bnds were employed in producing the seven crops of wbeat, corn, rye, barley, oats, jin tatoes, an J hay, the cost to the country in 13P9 would bave been some X0.000 000 greater than it was, and J'.SXOOO.OX) greater tbe esse of ecru alone. ing on them.

The ore way is tbe way of law and government, the other the way of barbarism ami anan hj, and it ia a queer state cf affairs when the Church of Christ 'iBcomes the spomer for the latter way. Moreover, all the3e damages wilj presumably be cov ered and more, toe, in the indemnity that is to be squi'ized out of China, so tbe effect of the missionary opera tion is to collect it twice. As a matter of pidicy, to put it on no higher ground, it is most unfortu nate for tho menory, of it cannot fail to be a heavy drag weight for generations to come on missionary work in C'hica. The law of associations bill, after long and bit'er tight, becomes a law at ,it in France by the con currce of tie Assembly In the Senate an endnients. It is a rc- markablctriumph for the Waldeck -Rous seau Ministry thi.t, when first formed. was euppistd to be only a temporary mabeshift, tu: nccmplished its pur pose iu carrying the republic through the Dreytin trouble with some sort of honor, and bis now held the reigns longer than any of its predecessors un der tha Tuird Republic. The bill, which has been fought with all the vehem ence and power of Home, aims for tbe purpoe of controlling fducation.to keep the religious orders within reach of the government arm. Those orders, a ma jority of whose members are French, or tbat are governed and managed in France, are not interfered with, but! those tbat consist in the main of for eigners, or "have foreigners to admin ister them, or have their headquarters abroad shall be liable to be dis solved by a decree of the President of tbe Republic made in Council of Minis ters" and their property, except what belonged to members bofore they en tered the congregation or, what ha3 ac- rued to them, either by acquisition or donation in the direct line, shall go back to tha heirs of the persons who originally bequeathed it. It ts certain- a drastic measure and likely to be effective in keeping clerical enmity to tbe republic within bounds. It applies Jesuits, the Carthusians, the Do minicans and the Assmnntionists. M Valdeck-R( usseau declared in bis speech or tbe bill tha tthe association keeps in mortninln property to the value of 00,000,000, and that this wealth had been employed for political as well as for religious purposes, and gbt continue to be so employed to the constant danger of the republic. So rapidly has the education of well-to-do people passed into religious bands that, according to M Waldeck-Rausfeau. there are now two classes of youths in France, tbe one faithful to the traditions of lib erty and free inquiry, the other reac tionary an.1 clerical. It is certainly within the fair province ot government to so regulate education at not to be suDversive of the government itself, and the idea of the property provisions, he said, was to make the existence of the orders entirely dependent on the will of the government. of Orattl.boro Called Diaadoir Pulpit TThe First church (Congregational) of Longmeadow, Mass, has extended beartv and unanimous call to Key Honrv L Hailev, a native of lirattlo bcro, for 10 years past pustor of tbe church at Middletown Springs and one of the nronisinB men of tne oe nomination io this state, who will assume his tew charge about Oct 1st Mr Hailey was born Mav 8, in the octagon house, now occupied by H H Thompson, while his father wa preaching about the county, having bis headquarters here.
