A renewal of terrorism in Russia N

burg. H is allrged that the terrorist
have issued a lwr calling for tho re

The race antagonism in Russia have
also been intensified by the Siedlc mas-!

of Ritian oflU-ialdom a to enhtruins
the rights of the Jew and meanwhile
we may expect to hear of other Jewish
outrage. The continued absence of the

TROTH PLAINLY PUT.
The Isthmian Canal Commission lias
received four tender for the supply of
a working force of Chinese coolie, the
rate for common laborers varvins from
V cent to 11 cents per hour in Amer
kan gold. The bond of ?50,000 which
accompanied the proposals is evidence
tnat the contractor entertain no doubt
of their ability to supply the labor.
As tfieywjll probably pay their la
borers at about the same rate in Pana
maian silver, there is evidently a good
margin to cover cost of transportation
both ways, other expenses and leave a
very satisfactory profit. The bond of
the contractors, as we understand it,
cover the obligation to return every
coolie to China on the expiration of
bia term of work. The laborers are not
t to be subject to the direction of these
who contract to supply them, but to
that of Luted States officials, who will
be responsible for sanitation and hu
mane treatment, as alo for the com
pliance of the agreement for returning
tnem to China.
: We confess that we are utterly un
able to comprehend the opposition of
union labor to the employment of these
coolies at that place, and under these
conditions. There Is certainly not a
onion, or nonunion man, in the Unit
ed States who wants a job on the
canal at any price. The natives of Cen
tral America evidently will not do the
work. Even supposing that the South
ern negroes could be secured for the
Work and that has been proposed an
agent endeavoring to recruit them!
would be in danger of a mob, for the
South is suffering for lack of labor as
aererly as any other section. For un
ion labor to go outside the United
States to endeavor to prevent coolies
from being employed thousands of milet
away on work which no American labor
er will touch or has need of is silly
beyond comprehension. S. F. Chronicle

THE ULTIMATE HORROR.
Some one has invented a torpedo boat
that floats in the air and carries high
explosives which may be dropped into
the streets of a besieged city or on
the heads of the soldiers of an army,
encamped or in battle array. It is to
be hoped that if a successful flying ma
chine of this description is perfected,
it will prove so terribly effective that
war will be aa unthinkable thins. The
fact that the machinery of war has
been made so awfully destructive in
modern times hag proved a more pow
erful peace agent than The Hague tri
bunal. Had the Russians not under
rated the capacity of the Japanese to
produce and use bic puns and shimose
they might have been spared a great
cumulation and tne turmoil winch
threatens to rend the empire. If they
had the tiling to do over ajrain they
would attach more weight to such
things and we are quite sure that other
nations have profited from observation
of the fact that doubtful things are
very uncertain and that war as now
conducted spells disaster for the victor
as well as the defeated.
Truly, time brings its changes. A gen
eration or so ago the very name of
Beecher was execrated throughout the
South. Today a man of that honorable
name U a candidate for Congress in
"Gen." Asbert, one of the Cuban in
surgent leaders, has, it is stated, written
a letter to President Roosevelt, telling
him what's what in Cuba, and inci
dentally stating that the insurgents are
not afraid of the United States army. VpJtl,,,,. om T ,. n( ,u , , . ,
