The anniversary of Lincoln's assassination has become a day on which the South meets the North in complete sympathy and understanding. There was scarcely less horror in the former than in the latter at a blow- that threatened far more disastrous consequences to the Southern than to the Northern people. Fifty years ago. however, Lincoln was not understood and appreciated in the South as ho is 'today. Then he was a sectional hero. Now he belongs to the whole country, and all of us are proud to do him honor as one of the great Americans. The day on which the assassin's bullet struck him was the supreme hour of our national travail and sorrow, His cud may have been, as the New York Sun puts it, "an epic neces sity" of the great drama of civil Avar, an "inevitable culmination,,'' but even after half a century -we cannot see in it "an immortal good fortune." Perhaps Mr. Lincoln seems greater today than ho would have scorned but for the apotheosis conferred on him by the tragedy, but years of sectional bitterness and strife and many evil consequences would have been averted had Lincoln's big heart and broad patriotism been left to guide the country and to soften asperities at that critical time. If he had lived, half a decade would not have passed before h'e would have bound the South to the Union by his humanity and fraternal love. President Wilson, in ordering recognition of this anniversary of a great national loss, touches the real chord in the genera heart when he peaks of "the profound affection of the American people for the memory of Abraham Lincoln."' There may be differences of opinion as to Lincoln's place in statesmanship and in history, but there is no difference about his love of mankind and his ardent and wholehearted desire to do a great service for his fellow-men. He did not know- that lie would die for his cause.. But we believe he would consciously and willingly have suffered martyrdom had he thought that his blood -was needed for popular liberty. But his loving-kindness has outlasted the hate of that period, and today the South, as well as the North recalls him with "profound affection" and unfeigned admiration. TUB t-XITED RAILWAYS. The report of the United Railways and Electric Company of Baltimore for the year ended December 31, 1914, which has just been published, shows that during the year the street cars carried 185,200,350 passengers, or more than 500,000 a day. The gross earnings for the year were $9,203,839.46, a substantial increase over the previous year. notwithstanding the lack of employment of an unusual number of men during the winter. It paid as park taac into the city treasury 593,813.51, an increase of $12,S27. The total of taxes and public charges paid, including park tax and streetpaving, -was $1,137,201.03. The company increased largely its equipment, increased the -wages of employes, inaugurated a pension system and made provision required by the Workman's Compensation act of 1914. This is a creditable exhibit. A public.service company of this kind cannot afford to stand still. It must be constantly on the move, getting improvements and facilities -which are demanded by the public. Having to deal with so vast a number of customers, the company is of necessity subjected to a great volume of criticism. Much of it is trivial and unworthy. Biit where it Jo just it should receive attention, and this, we believe is thalBpiiajr. of the. In! united ianways . management.. j-" order to keep its equipment up to the j standard it is entitled to maintain-a J margin . o profit necessaryto give relia- ble service and to attract needed capi- tal. The company is under the supervision of the Public Service. Commission, and that supervision, we are inclined to believe, has not been burdensome. "While having a jealous regard to the public interests and convenience the commission should deal with the company, and -we believe it does deal with it, with even-handed justice. Upon the -whole, the report shows that the management of the street railways has, been libera, progressive and successful. THE CITY A N I) THE MAX. That a man can grow and grow very much after 45 is one of the things illustrated by four years of Mayor Preston. Some people stop growing after 40. That, was the Osier theory, and as to many men, if not most men, the theory is justified by the facts. Mr. Preston is one of the happy minority that refuses to conform to the Osier law. He has insisted on continuing to grow after a period when he should have stood still. Of course, he must have had the germ of growth in' him, or there could have been no development. What a great many of, us did not realize four years ago was that under the skin of the fighting, bull- ' headed party man there was this precious germ of growth and ; individual progress. Perhaps Mr. Preston did not; know it himself. But the fact is that the ; change and improvement in the city have i not been any more remarkable than the change and development in its executive himself. The city made no mistake -when it elected him Mayor, though many persons at the time thought it had made a great blunder. Yet these four years show that the blunder -would have been made in turning hini down. He had just the driving, masterful, courageous qualities that were needed for the work in hand, and like some hardy mountain . tree he flourished and grew stronger on blasts of criticism. Without that' criticism he might have remained a partisan prickly plant. It acted on him like a tonic, and lie has become intellectually broader and better fitted for big tasks. Nobody can read the interview with him in yesterday's Sux without being impressed by this thought. A new and better Baltimore has become part of Mr. Prestosi's ambition. -He is thinking and planning along broad lines, along community lines, not along partisan and narrow ones. It is 110 longer an "old-fashioned'' administration that he represents, hut one -which is essentially modern and scientific in its purposes and principles. When he announces as part of his program that he intends to make Baltimore the cleanest and most healthful city in the country we feel that he will come very near doing that, as -well as making it a notable town in other respects, because his pride and ambition are enlisted in the work. He can do more with the team he drives than any other man in the city, and "though he drives roughly at times, he generally gets his load to the necessary point. We are free to admit that four years ago, like a great many other persons, we never expected to number this political Saul among the prophets of progress. But lie. is, in effect, a progressive, and his progressivism is written with a large and modern 1. We do not mean that he is perfect. There is a good deal of the old leaven in him yet. He will continue to make mistakes and brazen them out. And he is not yet included among the disciples of civil service reform at the City Hall, and he still thinks a good Democrat is better than a Republican when it conies to appointment to office. But the welfare of the city is what he has more at heart than partisan advantage, and from the mere monarch of a "royal family" he has become the representative of community aspirations and the prophet of a great community future. HAPPINESS IX HEXO. The celebration of the re-enactment of the easy divorce law at Reno, Nov.. was entirely appropriate. The dispatches tell us that all the cafes had special features, scaling up from the familiar cabaret to serpentine novelties and hoola-hoola dances. The Reno people do not even pay such .1 tribute to virtue as hypocrisy is said to be. They are brutally frank. The laws of the State of Nevada undertake to sell divorces for so much money spent in the State, to make a traffic of the marriage relation. Marriage, home and family are the foundations upon which our social scheme and civilization rest. On the sacrcd-ness of marriage and its performance depend family life, the happiness, -virtue and permanence of society. And here we have a State making a traffic and a mockery of it. At a cost estimated at some $2,500 any marriage, it is asserted, can he annulled. Formerly a residence of six months in the State was sufficient for a divorce, and there were flush times in Reno. Two years ago the law was amended so as to requif e a residence of. twelve months. But was too big a price to pay for the dissolution of a trial marriage and the great Reno industry was killed. Now it has been revived and the joy in the cafes and hotels of the town is uneonfined and the sound of the hoola-hoola is heard in the streets. - But there is one consideration which may yet have a depressing effect upon Reno's industry. It is the growing disposition among the courts of the other States to refuse recognition to the Nevada divorce. If a person leaves his wife in Maryland and gets a divorce in Nevada and then marries again, it has been decided in Maryland that such a marriage is not legal and the rights of the divorced wife are unimpaired. The same theory prevails in New York and other States. And so, when a man or woman marries a person with a Reno divorce lie or she is assuming a risk.' On the whole, the re-enactment of the easy divorce la'w by the Nevada Legislature and the celebration of the event in Reno are very disgraceful-inci dents. , ' " SUNBEAMS.

Much of the happy niatings is ever written and sung, But little enough of the grave misfits that fate in his arc hath swung; And strange it seems in the summing of all right things and wrong That so mans- miss the choosing of the. right mate from the throng , And while you are prenching and praying for the union sanctioned by . God, . You tie a soul to a satellite or burden it with a clod! Somewhere, and far asunder, in. a world that's far apart, A man is born, and a woman, and they drift together in heart; But why not ponder how often the true mates far or near , Wait in vain for "flic meeting, and-the wrong fate nets them in. And life goes down in a shadow, and hate and dread and fear, While over the wreck and the ruin the lips of malice grin! Love to the soul that chances to win to its satellite! Woe to the heart that staggers down to its napless night Bound to the dust and ravel of a life. that never knows The tenderness of a woman, the love that in her slows. The hunger and eager yearning to love and be loved by one To whom she can turn as the 'morning hath turned to tne rising sun! j Better old land than it' ever was, Better out times than we ve ever had; Think of the beauty that round us lies, And love your fellows and just be glad. Ask heaven not its own , j Blue secret . of the skies; Ask life TV-hat none have known The language of loved eyes. As beauty is, 'tis thus All beauty we must take; And so with love, receive Its gifts for love's own sake. A tenderer word than you used to give, A kindlier thought than you used to show: Maybe these measures will help her -live. Maybe tins treatment will Help her glow. " Wnlkinf? Air. What you walking on these days? Bet you don't set foot on earth! Walking paths of mist and haze, That spring's beauty decks with mirth: Treading bubbles, stepping on Air that's come from groves of dawn, Windy spaces, all atune, Somewhere way back of the moon, Paths of foam, and roads of light Just because the weather's right! What you stepping on down there? I!et you don't set foot on clod! Finer things the highways wear Now- that they are paved with God: Paved with such a shine of sun As came yesterday to you, Bursting like a chosen one Out-of visions vast and blue; Out of Heaven itself, indeed Just in answer to Our need! What you stepping on, behold? Bet yon don't -set foot, on soil! Heaven is paved, perhaps, with gold; Give me yet amid my toil Such a beauty as this day Paves the world with hour by hour- Burst of rapture, -blithe and gay, From a robin in the bower; Slant of silver sunlight o'er Young green leaves of willow, swung Where no dreams have been before And love comes to turn us young! I go companioned with such things That softly by pie steal Invisible on their elfin wings Over and round they wheel. One in the voice of beauty sighs, And one in love's own-chime Tells me the glory of the skies In the vision of summer time. As men die, so do dreams; As dead rise, so do they: This vision of a thousand gleams Was born of yesterday: This rapture of a morning spell Of beauty on the hill . Is goodness that hath risen out Of the dead dust of ill. And -so as time doth soar, And great stars wheel above, Returneth to my morning door The lost dream that was love. I would like to part the shadows From the path that feet must tread; I would, like to bring 'to others All the holies that may have fled. I would like to share 'lie riches Of my poverty of years With the hearts that ache for laughter They have ached so long with tears. THe Vales Ot Tile Wheat. The vales of the wheat are velvet in the beautiful tints of spring: Over the valleys the voices of children of happiness ring. I'm in the wheat and the clover, I am with children again; And this is the way it happens When spring comes back unto men. This is the way it happens when the vales of the young green wheat Are lying out in the sunshine, and the ripple of April is sweet. I'm in that glory of morning. And I'm in that glimmer of noon That sit on the hills of the summer To see if the vales are in tune. I am in all of it, dearie; down in it up to my knees, A part of the dream of the summer f ' and, ah, that soft kiss of the breeze's A kiss that like love's is a blossom Fall'11 soft as whisper of dew; And the lips are the lips of a lady And the lady is you ! What is the next chance going to be If the chance we are offered here Is met with a casual "wait till I see," And cast aside with a sneer? The golden spirit of all success Is the seizing of things that glow-As lights of the leading of happiness On the way we are destined to go. And out of the taking of chances, how men Grow strong in the spirit of truth. And come once more to the fountains again That bubble with waters of youth! Our stars are not unlucky, nor our fate Dark as we oft imagine, as we go With little sharing of our love and hate, With little envious notions how they grow! All that's unlucky for us rises clear Within us, and we make or mar the day As we go forth with laughter or with tear, Not mastered by, but masters of our " clay! Lightly, sprightly, Day and nightly, April through the land, Swinging, singing, Smiling, clinging, Touches with her hand Life, that answers With a smile : Love that whispers "Afterwhile!"

Was 3Vot' Too Big-. To the Editor of The Sttn" Sir: What would- you do to a man .who spit on you? Is there any redress for such a thing? I don't' mean one who does it with malice aforethought, etc., but through his absolute -.carelessness and natural Hastiness. Let me give you the story. This 'morning when I. attempted to get on a street car I just escaped escaped, thank Heaven- -by the very skin of my teeth, being spit upon by a dirty creature in an Electric Park car. As it was I was sprinkled. The car stopped for mo to get onn did he think' it stopped for him to spit, or was he dreaming, that he didn't know when a car stops at a corner that a person is supposed to be in the act of getting aboard? This is not the first time this thing has happened to me, and of course it must have happened to many others, but I do think it is about time for something to be done to protect passengers getting on. If you could have seen what I just es-cape'd, you would understand my disgust and wrath. This act was not committed by a man on the platform, I feel sure, for I heard them talking about it. and each one disclaimed doing the trick, but a man on the longitudinal seat looked mighty guilty a man that looked, like a Chinaman. He just jumped up and spit out in the street when the car stopped and sat down. Of course the men on the platform didn't notice who did it. but spitting is so much a man's trick that they wouldn't see it. Why must they forever spit anyhow? If 1 were asked to define a man, I would say, "Well, first he is an animal that spits !" That is his first characteristic. But what I want to know as what can one do about it? A man can knock another one down, but what can a woman do? Is it assault? To me it would be worse than assault, for I would much rather be knocked down than spit upon. Now. if I had not been very, very quick this morning I would have had my .dress ruined, and my body disgraced. This creature had a cold, a horrid cold ugh ! I cannot say anything more. But is there something you can do, Mr. Editor, to. help? Maybe you and the car company together. Perhaps the car company, besides the sign that is always in die car about spitting on the floor, could-add another one and put it up in electric lisrhts. "Wouldn't it be a wonderful thing j'if there could be cars for ladies and gen tlemen and -they iiud to qualify before they got on the car? M. L. X. Baltimore, April 32. A Pence Conference Of FMjrh tern. To the Editor of The Sun- Sir: P was very much amused at the report that a female peace delegation had started for The Hague to bring the war in Europe to an end. I cannot see what they can accomplish by such a mission, without they can get the kings of Europe to attend the conference, when they might be induced to put an end to the slaughter of their subjects, rather than be talked to death by a lot of women. I am reminded of the fact- that about a year ago Mrs. Belva. Lockwood was selected as a delegate to the Peace Congress, which Carnegie thought would put an end to war. I met her .soon after her selection and said to her : "Mrs. Lockwood. T see you are a delegate to the Peace Congress at Vienna. I want to make a prediction. In less than six months after your Peace Congress meets there will be the greatest war the world has ever known. Europe is now one vast camp and the men have been trained for soldiers for the last 30 years and it will take only a spark to cause an explosion of the magazine that will shake the earth." It is nonsense to talk about Peace Congresses now that the fight has just' begun. When both sides feel confident of victory it can only be settled by victory for one of the two combinations that has been formed for the struggle, the ' Allies or the Triple Alliance. Women only make themselves ridiculous, when the Pope cannot persuade them to stop the scrap. Our motto : "Let us have peace, if we have to fight for it." FltANKXIN. Washington, April 33. The BenlztoTrn Sard Gets Another Bouquet, And From The Ladles! Lncky Man ! To the Editor of The Sux Sir: In the name of Maryland womanhood I wish to offer sincere expression of appreciation to The Bentztown Bard for the "equal moral caste" -for which he so valiantly contends in his poem, "Two Sinners," which, appeared in today's Sun. We are glad that old-fashioned chivalry is not dead; that there is one at least who believes that the scarlet letter should be branded with equal distinctness on the. breast of every fallen man: that there should be "no sex in sin," no separate laws of purity or courts of equity. God bless you, Mr. Bentztown Bard, for your standard of social justice. If all mankind thought as you do there would be no need of Dr. Kellys to clear our city of vice. Every woman would be safe, and . every man his own moral safeguard. We thank you for your tribute of fairness, which we wish every man and woman in the State might read and appreciate as we do, and again we say, "God bless you.". A jrARTLAND WOICAS. ' Baltimore, April 12. Another Critic Of The Crnel Cat Trap. To the Editor of The Sun Sir: Will you accord nie space in which to add my condemnatory quota to what has already been said 1 in connection with the trap, justly abhorred by those interested in suppressing, cruelty to animals. In this age and - period, when so much is said and done for animal comfort and betterment, the movement receives a real throw-back when we hear contemplated the use and sanction of a contrivance which will prove a torture to any cat caught therein. Surely our birds can be protected adequately without employing such -means. Aa--boU birds-and-cat& are provedto-' be equally useful in their separate pVov.- inces it devolves itself, seemingly, into a-eaw of "bell the cat" at. all hazards, guilty or otherwise; a modernized "scapegoat." I cannot but regard the godfather of the trap movement as possessing instincts far more savage than .those' he condemns in a creature seeking to appease natural cravings for wild food. Trained intelligence should work on better lines to achieve its ends, and hot assume, to -further principles" of mercy that are not sanctioned by acts done in the flesh..- - Sally Washixgion Matput.

To the Editor of The Sun Sir: Apropos Mr. David Stewart's letter of the' 7th, it is indeed refreshing to know there is one man who is not afraid to say what he thinks, cannot be intimidated, and has no private ax to grind. Bully for you, Mr. Stewart ! But you f orget-r or perhaps you do not know that a recent addition to the Royal Family is thin and small oh, very small ! literally and figuratively. He furnishes the municipal Cajsar to repletion that food- of which Ca:sar is so inordinately fond-flattery, -sycophancy, servility, etc. ' . And while he is servile to the extent of being nauseating -to Caisar to those under him he is arrogant, domineering, unjust and spiteful. Fiat J tjstitia. New York, April 13. - "We 3Iakcv The Acknowledgment With Pleasure. To the Editor of The "Sun Sir: A few days ago Miss Clare Benedict sent me the inclosed cutting, saying in her note that as she had been to the trouble to translate Emperor Francis Joseph's letter she thought when it was reprilftgd in the Baltimore Sun : she ought to have been given the credit for the work. If you can mention by whom this translating was done it would, I am sure, be a great gratification both to Miss Benedict and to her many friends in Baltimore. . Miss Benedict is an authoress, great-grand-niece of Feni-more Cooper and niece of Constance Fenimore Woolston. I. D. Murrat. Elkridge, Md.. April 12. Was It A Great Feat?- To the Editor of The Sun Sir: Unless the German brags he is never at his best. He has an exalted opinion of himself and a very poor one of any Other. The man who laughs first docs not always have the best laugh. The escape of the German ship Kronprinz Wilhelm from the British warships last Sunday night and her wonderful achievement in slipping into Hampton Rolids without the British knowing a thing about it has been hailed as one of the most remarkable events of the whole war. The Germans have laughed and joked at the silly plight of the English captains. But in the light of cold, solid facts it was a very simple event. The English never intended to stop or destroy the German ship. They wanted her to' get into Newport News. Of what advantage would it have been to have sunk her outside the Capes and she having Gl British officers and sailors aboard? The English knew that the German ship needed coal provisions and repairs, and a neutral harbor was the only place where she could secure such. The Kronprinz AVilhelm is less dangerous interned at Newport News than she would be raiding the open seas, and the English prisoners are now on their wav back home. A single shell from one of the big guns of the British ships might have sent British officers and sailors to Davy Jones' locker instead. It was a very wise thing upon the part of the English to slip away and let the German ship go into Hampton Roads. It will be a very different feat to accomplish leaving the Roads than entering, especially as the English ships are now on the closest watch. Captain Thierfelder of the AVilhelm may uluff as much as his companion in misery, the captain of the Prinz Eitel. did. liut bluffing did not get the Eitel outside the Capes, nor will it be apt to accomplish that feat for the AVilhelm. Both of these ships have sailed their last voyage as raiders. Let the jolly German brag if he so wishes, but it was not such a wonderful feat after all. John Bull can laugh now until peace comes.

To the Editor of The Sun Sir: Please notice under head of "Correction" in The Sun the following which appeared Jn your paper of April 12 in the club "column, page G: "The Twentieth Century Club. Miss Etta Maddox, president, announced that the large sum of $S00 (not $200) was made and expended in relieving distress during the winter by the club, 63 families being assisted." Mrs. Charles G. Summers. Chairman Press and Publicity Committee j STORIES OF THE DAY She Spoke The Truth. From the New York Timej. Two ladies, whose husbands are members of the faculty of Oberlin College, went to call on the new professor's wife. They were shown into a room where the small daughter of the house was playing. AVhile waiting the appearance of their hostess one of the ladies remarked to her friend, at the same time nodding toward the little girl, "Not very p-r-e-t-t-y, is she?" spelling the word so that the child should not understand. Instantly, before there was time for the friend to reply, came the answer from the little girl: "No, not very p-r-e-t-t-y, but awfully s-m-a-r-t." Sot A Clock Dm;, From the Philadelphia. Ledger. "Invading armies always steal clocks," said George Ade at the Chicago Athletic Club. "The owner of a chateau in the war zone Kothome from business one evenine: and found that a reconnoitering party had stolen every clock on the premises. -' " 'Every clock swiped,' the owner growled, 'right under the nose of our expensive new dog.'

The art of prevarication, vulgarly known as lying, is. when once well cultivated, a most difficult accomplishment to drop. ' . It was so that a young fellow who was pushed into a business, to keep him out of mischief, had found it. 'His employer had also found it out, and he was severely admonishing him as to the evils that resulted from such wickednesses as lying. "It is very bad," he was concluding. "You are always lying." "Sir," said the young man indignantly, "L would have you know that I am a gentleman!" . " 'Pon my soul, I never knew such a chapl There-you.go again!" 1 ! BRYAN STARTS WILSON BOOM Secretary Virtually places President In Nomination -For Re-Election. IFrom the Philadelphia Ledger.' , National leaders of the Democratic" administration -made a vigorous defense of the accomplishments of the Wilson administration at the annua dinner of the Jefferson Club of Philadelphia, held last night at the Hotel Adclphia. Also, they fired the opening guns of the 1916 Presidential campaign, lauding AVoodrow Wilson "as the emancipator of the plain people and the guardian of the nation's peace, virtually placing the President in the field as a candidate for re-election. In a speech confined entirely to political issues and ringing with praise for the achievements of President' AVilson and the Sixty-fo-nrth Congress, Secretary of State Bryan uttered what was accepted by more than 500 dinner guests as his acceptance of Wilson's -candidacy. He said, to the accompaniment of cheers, that the American public would continue to indorse the doctrine crystallized into .law in the last two" years. The AArilson boom was further accentuated by ex-Representative A. Mitchell Palmer, leader of the Pennsylvania Democracy. At a reception which preceded the dinner he stood with Secretary Bryan and shook hands with a long line of Democrats from New York, New Jersey, Del aware, Maryland and every section of Pennsylvania. Mr. Palmer said he would be satisfied if he were as sure of a seat in Heaven as he was satisfied' that Wood-row Wilson would be the choice of the next Democratic National Convention. The dinner itself was one prolonged demonstration for Wilson, . with every mention of his name the signal for a demonstration. Civilization Is. Spiritual. Charles A. Ellwood. Civilization is the discovery, diffusion and transmission from age to age' of the knowledge, beliefs, ideas and ideals by which men have found it' possible to conquer nature and live together in well-ordered groups. Civilization, in other words, is at the bottom of creation and transmission of ideal values by which men regulate their conduct. It is, therefore, essentially a spiritual affair" and cannot be measured by changes, in the material environment, prone as we may be to measure it thus. AVhile human society was from the start psychic; it is manifest that only in its higher development does, it become so dominated by the psychic that it may well be called' spiritual. AN EMBARRASSING GUEST IS GEN. VTCT0RIAN0 HUERTA Whatever He Comes For, He Presents A Troublesome Problem. For United States. From tho "Philadelphia Ledger. AMctoriano Huerta, late President of Mexico. Will probably not gain the recreation and pleasure which he says he is seeking by a visit to the United States. He is on board the steamship Antonio Lopez, bound to New York ; hut the Government intends to see that his view of that city is restricted to a glimpse of the water front. No attempt to prevent him from entering the - country will be made, of course, until he tries to land. The reasons for shutting him out are similar, to those which operated in the celebrated case of. Castro, of Venezuela. This is a free country, a refuge for the distressed of every land. But the freest of countries has a duty to itself when a dangerous political adventurer seeks its hospitality. It is difficult to conceive of Huerta in the, role of innocent traveler. He may not intend to organize a revolution, in Mexico from the safe shelter of American territory ; but his presence here could not fail to be a source of embarrassment and alarm to the Administration. The power of shutting out "undesirables" is not always wisely employed by the immigration officials, and there are certain dangers in bureaucratic action against which just protest has frequently been made. In this instance it is a condition, not a theory, that confronts us. Huerta cannot have any affection for the United States, nor is curiosity alone likely to be the motive of his visit. He left Mexico for her good and his own, and he is presumably well able to seek his recreation and pleasure where he pleases. It may he that his welcome at the other ports . where the Antonio Lopez touches will be no more cordial than his welcome here. The Cubans, for example, might find him an uncomfortable guest. Even if ho were not permitted to leave the ship at all ho should not complain. There is a lot of recreation and pleasure to be got from a long sea voyage. SEES REACTION. IN NEW YORK Legislature "Ripping? Ont Whole Codes" Of- Progressive Laws. From tho New York World. Many New York Legislatures have stubbornly resisted the enactment of progressive legislation, but this is the first time in the memory of living men that a New York Legislature has deliberately proceeded to rip whole codes of progressive legislation out of the statute books at the instigation of private interests. This wretched, work' is done by men upon whom rest no charges of bribery and corruption. What they arc doing they are doing in the name of political reaction, but money never succeeded in' buying in Albany during any single session so much harm to the public welfare as reaction hns obtained as a gift. The" most corrupt Legislature that the State has had in a generation was less inimical to the common good than this JLegislature steeped in Bourbonism and consecrated to the almighty dollar. It is a sorry thing to say, but it is the truth. AVhat is worse, the conduct of this - Legislature is thoroughly in harmony with the new spirit of the Republican party. Albany is carrying into effect the Root-Penrose-Cannon political theory that government must be the servant of business. A whole fabric of humanitarian legislation is tornandman-gled in order to promote private profits at the expense of public progress and Governor AVhitman sits silent. There have been many sad exhibitions" of misgovernment in Albany, but nothing else so contemptible as the exhibition made by an administration and a Legislature that were chosen as a rebuke to Tammany Hall.

These poems, written some 20 years ago, are now for the first time introduced to the American public. They are part of the Belgian symbolistic movement, long defunct, "an off-shoot," "the translator says, "of that Belgian renascence, which produced so. remarkable a. body of great and noble poetry." AATith a few exceptions, they are translated into their, original metres and are almost a literal rendering into English. The essential thought suggested by many of the poems seems. to pertain to the isolation and insulation developed by false civilization and unreal religion that makes man a prisoner within himself, inmate, as it were.iof a hot house preventive of strong vigorous, hardy development. He pictures bodies suffocating within hell glasses, smothering within- diving bells, chained to a hospital atmosphere, and forced to contemplation of morbid subjects. The pictures painted give extremely vivid impressions of this' unreal, unwholesome mental atmosphere and the soul in the hot house exclaims: "My God, my God, when shall we feel the rain And the snow and the wind, in this close . . house. of glass?" The imagery is graphic, as inthelines: "Green as the sea, temptations creep Thro' the shadows of the mind." "The Hospital." is a straneo. weird picture, both real and unreal, of tho tever-ueateel fancies that flit through the brains of those tossing upon sick beds in a hospital ward-. Like a futurist picture the scene is merely suggested, yet the reader feels as one who watches the Sister of Mercy noiselessly lighting a fire, bringing in a patient's supper upon a tray, closing a window to deaden the shrill whistle of a ship passing through a canal, or barring a door which, when open, had permitted cool moonbeams to lie upon the floor. Across these actual scenes drift the vague, impossible pictures evolved by a mind threading painful way through a jungle of delirious fancies. Studies in aesthetics, the poems are faintly reminiscent of Dante Gabriel Rosetti, Verlaine, Baudelaire, but they have originality; they possess beauty, and they are admirably translated. If, 20 years ago, the.' poet yearned for the stern realities of life, the wind, the rain, the snow, to develop man's strength, verily the present desolation of Belgium has tested the iron and steel of her sons.

London correspondence in New York Times. The Times says the Tagliehe Rundschau enters a jjrotest against the commercial exploitations of hatred against England. The main subject of criticism is the appearance in a theatrical newspaper of the following advertisement: VERY NEWEST ATTRACTION. "GOD PDNISH .ENGLAND." GREAT PATRIOTIC PI.AY IN FOUR ACTS, BY DR. ERNEST BRANDOTV. Act I. "What are we thinkinir about. Act II, "Love and war." "Act III, "Ger many cannot pensii. ' Act IV, "We must conquer. Only eight parts and easily' played. Be- yonu oouut greatest success ot present time. Right of reproduction for the whole 'of Germany can be had on most favorable conditions. . The Tagliehe -Rundschau is much dis-J tressed at this commercialism and says that the only thing to do in order to save the phrase "God punish England" from being thus vulgarized is to employ it more sparingly. The military authorities in Berlin have decided to seize all supplies of cotton and wool gauze, cambric and other stuffs suitable for bandages and surgical dressings. Businesses or private persons who possess more than a small quantity of any of these 'materials are required to give a full account of them before April 17.
