THE BEE hopes that tso time is not
distant when there will bo substantial

road crossing. But Homo was not built
in a day and auy attempt to overload the
railroad by ordering viaducts promiscu
ously in ono season can only result in de
feating all the projects.

The Springfield ( Mass. ) Republican. .
cforring to the article in the Iowa Stati
Register of March 1 urging that the
opublican delegation from Iowa to the
.ational convention bo instructed tc
, 'oto for Mr. Blaine , says : "If there it
10 well-laid scheme behind this rep
osontativo republican newspaper's
ittoranccs , then the case becomes the
rory saddest of the many sad ones re'
iordod in the history of Blaincophobiu
n this country. "
The Republican's implication that
hero may bo a well-laid scheme in the
ilTorts of J. S. Clarksnn to send a dele
gation from Iowa to Minneapolis in-
tructod for Blaine is fully warranted.
Dho design is to make a trade in the in-
orestof Clarlcson. That individual IE
lot at all modest in his political aspira-
lons. His zeal for Mr. Blaine was duo
argoly to the hope that ho might secure
ho second place on the ticket. Ho will
10 very well satislled now to make a
largain for a cabinet position , and if ho
an got the Iowa republican delegation
nstructod for Blaine it is not to bo
loubted that ho will endeavor to make
uch a bargain. Clarlcson has no ox-
loctation that Blaine will bo nominated.
Micro is not a republican londnr whoso
pinion is of any weight who doaa no
ogard as final the refusal of the socro-
ary of state to bo considered a prcsi-
ontinl candidate. There is not u , re-
lutablo republican having faith in the
andor and honesty of Mr. Blulno who
oos not hold tliat view of his doclin-
tlon. The assumption that low i "has
ho power to make him the next presi-
ent of the United States" is manifestly
bsurd. But if the Iowa delegation
hould bo instructed for Blaine It would
o in a position to be manipulated in the
ntorost of some other o.indidato , and
ho inlluonco of Chvrkson would bo
xorted in behalf of the candidate from
fhora ho had reason to expect the most
iboral consideration.
The schema behind the utterances of
lie licyister la sulllolontly obvious. It is
D plain that very fowof the republicans
f Iowa are likely to bo docolvod by it.
'horo are not many of thorn who have
ny doslro to promote the political aspl-
ations of J. S. Clurkson. Ills course as
solf-uppolntod loader of the ropubll-
uns of Iowa has not boon to the ad-
milage of the party in that stiuo.
lis conduct on a broader stage of polltl-
al notion has not helped the republican
arty in the nation. Ho lacks" the ca-
aoity for wise and safe leadership. The
andoncy of what ho is now ondo woring
a do in [ owa is against party harmony ,
a essential to republican success In that
late this your , and it Is the imperative
nty of the republicans of tiiat state to
ofoat his transparent scheme.
Whether this city orders the wires of
ho telephone , telegraph or electric
ighting companies underground or not ,
iiothor polo for wires should not bo
ilantod In this city without a permit
rom the Board of Public Worka and
nder supervision of a competent in-
poctor , detailed to see to it that the
olos shall bo planted without seriously
umnging sidewalks and interfering
rlth the poles already existing. It is
ad enough to have our streets ob-
truotod by a forest of poles in the heart
f the city , but it is an outrage on prop-
rty owners who have gone to the ex
cuse of costly permanent sidewalks ,
nd who have expended largo sums for
ub-collars in front of their store houses ,
to submit to having thoin torn up 1
laborers who nro not competent to n
pair the damage.
The fact Is that the city ought 1
compel the corporations who own po' '
lines In this city to deposit mono
enough with the city treasurer to pr
for all damages liable to occur before
permit is granted to tear up the walk
Another very desirable reform woul
bo to require all poles to bo of unifori
height and permit only ono sot on on
side of any street , conditioned that a
competing companies shall have joli
use of such poles on payment of roi
Bonablo charco to the company ownln

promiscuous polo nuisance in our street

If the coal minors of England carry
ut their announced intention , there
, 'ill bo inaugurated this week ono of
ho greatest strikes in the history of
hat country. The lutost advices inti-
lute that the threatened conflict may
o averted. It is stated thut of the
00,000 minors in Great Britain not
lore tliun one-third of them have oven
isoussed the question of u strike , and
ti view of the fact that coal sioclts arc
aw and prices high it is thought proba-
lo that a satisfactory arrangement may
0 inudo between the operators and the
liners by which hostilitloj will bo
voided. Meanwhile the price of coal
.as gone up to extraordinary figures
nd there is much , suffering in conso-
uonco among the poor.
The coal minors of the United'King-
om constitute a powerful organization ,
'ho National union of minors was or-
iinlzod eleven years ago , and two voara
: iter it had become strong enough ta
arry a 16 per cent advance through the
Lingdom. Slnco that time the minors
ave reckoned with the oparutors on
qual terms. Within the lust four youre
ho mon have obtained two advances ,
mounting to . ' 10 per cent. Under a plan
dopted three years ago , wages and nil
thor differences between employers and
liners have boon settled by an organ-
ted system of local , district and
ational committees. Fully CO per cent
f all the minors belong to the National
ulon , which keeps a largo fund to bo
sod in cane of strikes and also disburses
considerable amount annually In relief.
It will thus bo scon that this powerful
rganization has a long period of suc-
088 behind it to , give oncourngomont
nd confidence to its members , but It is
tiggostod that they face odds never mot
oforo. Great strikes have failed in the
ast year In Germany and Franco ,
'hero ' wages are far lower than in Eng-
ind. The depression that extends over
Inglish trade is unfavorable to uny ad-
anco in the wages for mlnfng coal , and
the mon insist upon their demand a
rolongod conflict will bo inevitable ,
.ccordlng to n cable dispatch , If the
xport trade Is cut off one-third of the
liners in the country might remain on
strike six months without restricting
10 output consumed at homo. If that
1 the fact It would seem that under ex
iling conditions the minors of the
nitcd Kingdom will make a very seri
ns mistake if they precipitate a con-
let. The effect of doing this must
necessarily bo to Increase the ponon
business dourcjlslon , while the siillonn

THE most creditable thing David Bon
ictt Hill has done in a very long time
vus his refusal to ucceptstilury from the
josrinning of his term us United Stutes
lonator , March 4 , 1891. Mr. Hill was
iworn in us senator January 7 , 1892 , but
it the beginning of the current month
10 had a right to claim a full year's sal-
iry. On applying to the clerk of the
lonuto for money ho was tendered that
imount , with miloajro , but declined to
ocoivo it and inaisted upon signing
'ouchors only for the time since lie was
worn in , so that over $4,000 which ho
night have had will bo covered back
nto the treasury. As a financial trans-
tction Mr. Hill was bettor oil by remain-

What a charming piece of word-painting is
ho following : "Tho morning dawned , tbo

aud llowers. I still reeled with the after
onsations of the sea , but was e-ontcnt lo
