Whatever else may develop out of the JMcNab-McReyuolds eplBode, thoro certainly was something there some body in a high place was trying to hush up. The wisdom of old Porflrlo Dlas has not left him. Ho knows when he has had enough, and declines to re-enter tho field of political activity In Mexico, Let us give thanks that tho fellow who used to talk periodically about lauxzllng the dogs in summer has himself been effectually muzzled by enlightened publlo dptnion. The national bankers evidently made a mistake. They should have hailed that currency bill with acclaim just what they wanted, and thus have struck a fata) blow to its popularity? Some men Inherit the spotlight, some have it forced upon them, but poor old Ben Tillman strives tor it In vain from the rear end ot a Wash ington street car, where he wrangles with the conductor. That Portland, Ore., ice dealer, sent to the rock pllo for five days for defrauding a patron ot C cents worth of ice, may regard it a cold deal, but the; chances are he will not repeat the offense. His excellency, the governor of Kansas, gives a fine opening for our correspondents to turn, their recent discussion ot religion and futuro re 'ards and punishments to a debate oa the efficacy of prayer. - Pardon Board Perversions, From publlshod accounts of par don board proceedings, tho hearings before that body partake largely of tho nature of now trials, genornlly of one-sided presentation of evidence favorablo to tho prisoner. In a re cent case, witnesses before tho par don board nro said to havo com pletely roversod evldonco given by them under oath In the trial on which tho original conviction was had, feeling evidently that they could do so without foar of prosecution for perjury. Irrespective of the merits of any cfiBo, it strikes us the pardon board is now, and has from tho first gone at its work with a perverted pur. pose. Tho business ot tho pardon board under tho law is to dotermlno, first, whether prisoners serving .in determinate sentences are by their behavior, and promise of reforma tion, entitled to parole, and second, to make recommendations to tho govornor for tho granting of execu tive pardons. But nowhoro is the pardon board constituted a court competent to give rohearings and now trials or to roverso tho finding of Juries and nppollato tribunals. If it were contemplated that the pardon board should be the final arbiter of guilt or innoconco, it would bo much cheaper and afford more oxpedltious Justice to abolish all tho other prose cuting and punitive mochlnory and put it up to tho pardon board in the first place, When a person accused of crime is convicted by unanimous voto ot twolve Jurymen, and tho vordiot is roviowed and confirmed by tho dis trict court, and possibly by tho bu prcmo court. It must be taken as established that ho is guilty unless provlously undlscoYcrod and. vital evldonco later comes to light, and that what ho Is entitled to from tho pardon board, If ho Is entitled to any thing, is not a clean bill of health, but merely an order for conditional liberation upon satisfactory asour nnco that ho has at least on oven chanco to becomo again a law-abiding and usotul citizen. . The Philosophical Sterner, If tho farmer is not bo by nature, ho is apt to becomo by exporienco something ot a philosopher. In his dally life he must depend almost wholly upon the elements, over which he haB no control, for tho success of his crops, and unless ho is ready to surrender abjectly to despair, the uncertainty ot tho seasons with Its effect upon his material Welfare is iikoly to mako a wise man of htm. To some extent it may bo said ot us all Mint' our success depends upon factors beyond our control, but of the farmer this is peculiarly true, tie prepares the bo11, selects hi seed and sows it with skill, doing all he can, in fact, to insure a good crop, and yet may have a disastrous har vest. His corn may come up with the beet stand, every bill shooting forth a vigorous growth and then as he is beginning to ealoutnto on en larged granaries unfavorable weather ' conditions set In and before he real-1 izes it completely ehango his pros pects, And every year such a thing may happen, though, of course, it doos not in the average country. But tho uncertainty ot tho expori enco is sura to effect the phil osophical Bldo of tho farmer's mind. It is to his credit that It makes fewer pessimists than wise, considerate men. Sometimes it teaches tho necessity of a greater variation of crops. Wheat, for instance, might mature and yield a rick, harvest the erne naOB in which com failed completely, for tha wheat may be threshed before the atdsumwer drouth and heat set in. The farmer who has any deposition to be thoughtful has plenty to think about all the time, Jaja' raMioity Plan. Japan has decided to. maintain a press agent in the United States, who will work through the. California Japanese, His mission wilf bo to conduct a campaign of education a in this country and Japan with the view of promoting a hotter mu tual understanding and respect; A Japaneso newspaper roan, with practical exporienco on both sides of tho Paclf lo, has boon selected for the work. Americans, as sponsors of the modorn system ot publicity, should cordially commend tho plan. It Is progressive, fair and up-to-date and suggests Japan is not afraid to try its case in the forum ot publlo dis cussion, to set forth the facts and submit, to the arbitrament ot public opinion. This ot itself Is a point in favor of tho Japanese, challenging our fairest consideration. It may be said that Japan will color the facta to favor Itself. Pos sibly, but a nation as shrewd as Japan knows better than grossly to distort the' facts; knows that instead of helping, that would hurt, if not defeat, its purpose. Americans, who are disposed td think that all the en lightenment as between these two countries needs to bo dono in the far east, have something to learn from this publicity agent. Indeed, It is extremely doubtful It a more accu rate knowledge of conditions did not result in a good deal ot profitable usioulng on the part of Amer icans. At any rate, they cannot af ford not to treat Japan's proposition seriously. When one person aa a party to a dispute proposes to cease fruitless argument and compare facts It Is up to the other to co-operate. No Half-Baked Rural Credits. It is quite generally agroed that we ought to havo a system of rural cred its in this country. Such a system has worked well in some of tho older countries of Europe and, theoret ically, at least, would do so hore. If true, the American farmer is entitled to tho benefits. And yet tho demand for the rural credits system is not such on to Justify any half-baked legislation on tho subject. For that rocnon con gress, as the prcsltrenv has wisely signified, should not attempt action at this extra session, aa aomo over zealous mombers have proposed. The very fact of the need, together with our genera unfamtllarlty with the principles Involved, In the best reason for making haste slowly. Even: members of congress aro not so Inti mately conversant with the practical workings of rural credits as to war rant immediate action. No such emergency exists as to make undi gested legislation imperntlvo without, time for thorough research and con sideration. A Magazine Without a Muckrake. The new editor of tho Century magazine, Robert Storllng Yard, who has Just takon chargo of that publica tion, salutes tho readers with a retro spect and n prospect that must arrest tho attention of Intelligent and thoughtful people. ' Ab everyone who keeps abreast of periodical literature In this country knows, the Century, along with pos sibly two or three other magazines, ranks in practically a class by ltsolf, maintaining the highest literary and artlstlo standards, and at the same time presenting successive survey ot world achievement in science, indus try, education and of political and social progress. Coupled with a promlso to keep to this high lovel, tho now editor Btrik ingly distinguishes the purposes of the Century from those of tho so called "muckraking" magazines by saying: Not a an advocate shall wo present these causes. nn win in tw-otest tut lh the fair, free, unbiased spirit of in vestigation. Facts must precede opin ion:!. It Is poor rowing against tho rapid between tho lakes. Let us study these manifestations fairly and sym pathetically before wc draw conclusions. The Century wants it understood that it will cling close to Its old tra ditions, yot keep step with the cur rant of human pcogress. The wavo on which the muckraking magazine rodo to temporary popularity Is plainly receding, leaving tho Utornry craft that hold steadfast to the courso standing out in stronger and moro admirable lines. Pitoher Xefuset to Leave Box. Determined to win the next gamo, Managor Murphy of the, Tigers sent his tall splt-ball artist, Sulzer, to tho mouna, noming uiynn in reserve. SuUer was wild from tho very first and headstrong, disregarding orders from the bench until along about tho fourth inning, with his spitter refus ing to break, tho boss jerked him arid eont in his southpaw, Glynn, who had been warming up with Frawloy for an inning or two. And then came tho real climax: ot excitement, a spectacle seldom seen on a Tiger diamond. Sulzer, refus ing to believe he was all in, declined to leave the box, while Olynn, under orders from Murphy insisted on go ing is. A wrangle ensued, delaying the game in the middle of a hot Au gust day, to the utter disgust of the tans. Hisses and cheers were min gled with shouts: of "Put him out," "Get a new manager,'' "Let old roan Peeple pitch," with tsentunent about equally divided. Nobody seemed to approve the Tiger management, and yet many, soro at Bulzor's bad workVCMt Yet Canada is too great a couj were nan-way giaa at wnat nP- try, a nation, It might Almost be sold poned'. ....

Tho Super-Woman. An eastern college, for girls has essayed the task ot producing the super-woman. The process will be pursued largely out of doors and run through a period of eleven years, which, whllo seemingly long, is a much shorter span than nature has yot been able to achieve human per fection in. Twenty girls ranging in ago from 10 and 12 will be selected for the test and put through an ele mentary course for seven years, then "educated aa a woman should be." The class rooms are to be one story wood and glass structures ad mitting ample light and air, but no heat, and In winter the girls will wear Eequtmo clothing. They will never breathe the air of an ordinary school room. Their class room hours will be from 9 a, m. to 3:20 p. m. They will live and commune with nature and avoid the foibles of fash ion calculated to distract the mind or deform the body. Perhaps the most significant thing about the undertaking is that It snows tho Invincibility of our Ameri can grit in these Utter days of phe- nomennl achievement For tho re sults, it is too early to speak with precision, except that Uio school should derive somn fine publicity from tho schemo. Of course, much can bo done, as much has been done, toward raoo improvement in both soxes, but whother the plan of per fection has as yet been worked out is questionable.

The ennui of summer is usually so felt in all channels of activity as to mako the heated period tho dull season) but it is different thiB year. Wo have the paradox of an exces sively long and hot summer and on exceedingly lively, oven exciting, one. Excitement, indeed, there is upon evory hand. The columns of tho dally newspa pers, always accurate mirrors of con ditions, reflect tnt. anomaly most vividly. Ask tho tolograph editors' If you think It is a dull sbason and! cannot appreciate the conditions! yourself. First, there is an extra; session or congress, with curroncy and tariff bills to wrestlo with and every now and then a class with tho executive; tho Mexican situation as suming now and complex, indeed, re markable aspects continually; Japa nese sensations coming and going with usual regularity; New York's, dirty political fight and, above all, the angry gods of the elements wreaking their pitiless wrath upon suffering humanity. All In all, this probably will rank near the top as one of liveliest ot dull seasons, The British in Canada. Tho National Review of London goes to mucfh pains to contradict the current impression of a decadence of British population and influonco in Canada, citing figures to show that both are on tho increase. For In stance, it Bays: Tho tourist who hurries through Canada from co oat to coast often persuades him solf that the British clement In the popu lation no longer dominates. But recently Issued census bulletins show that tho people of British origin are In the ma jority, not only in the country ao a whole, pany gapped at tho Paxton en route but also In every province with the es-l from Wltehngton to their homo In De ception of Quebec. It is true that tho er.

Furthermore, the statistics of homestead entries suggest that the gruater part of thft land occupied In late years has been taken up by the English-speaking settlors. The Review gdes on tb nay that the Englishmen migrating to Canada aro "able-bodlod as well as able-minded and almost always a credit to the adopted country." Just hero it might bo said that this may be dlroctly due to Canada's own rigid rules raised against any other sort of immigrant. It recalls the Incident of some few years ago when Mother England, striving to roduco thj congestion ot London's breadline, sent two steamer loads of royal subjects to Canada and they were met at tho port and turned back with tho announcement that, while Canada craved and needed armies of new settlers, principally for its agricultural west, It could not uao tho soldiers of idleness asti want. It is time England were deeping its pride In Canada, tor as Its great est province It affords the largest outlet for British growth and great ness. It'ls, in fact, the most inviting field of British aggression, boundless in dominion, fathomless In resources, with its future moat luminously over- If the BritlBh. blood continues to dominate, it will be nonetheless well fused with that of many nations.
