foreshadowed by several days of dramatic reports from the Isle of Wight has come at last and Queen Victoria is no mure Death which knocks with impartial stroke at the palace of the King and the hovel of the peasant visited her island home yesterday and put an end to leer suffering in the eightysecond year of her ago Qbe of the four sole regnants over the empire of which she reigned she had worn the crown longer than qll combined The first known as Bloody Mary reigned but five years while Elizabeth her successor was Queen for fortyfive and Anne but twelve years Combined their reigns covered but si tytwo years that of Victoria was oversixtythree years While it is difficult to draw a com parison between the reigns of Elizabeth and Victoria owing to tlie differ ence between the tares In which they lived and to the intervening changes in the condition of civilization and re gal authority It is not to be question ed that the verdict of posterity will award to Victoria the merit of having the more brilliant reign when weighed by the test of human progress and moral evolution If the Elizabethan age was illumined by tbo genius of Shakespeare and Bacon it was darken ed by the ignorance and poverty of the masses and by the cruel excesses of the sovereign In contrast to these physical and administrative defects the reign of Victoria is as incompar able as the electric light of the Nine teenth century to the rush ligbtpf the Sixteenth Ascending tbe throne dur lug the ministry pf Lord John Russell just after the great measures of relig ious and economic reform had been inaugurated she became and contin ued through her life the embodlmentof that peaceful revolution in the Eng lish Constitution by which the royal prerogative was shorn of its absolutism and England became thoroughly con stitutional monarchy in which tale will ort e people expressed through Parliament became the dominant fea ture of Government Under the en lightened statesmanship of Gladstone thehome government wfts still further liberalized the federative prjqcipje of the colqqial sjstcin successfully organ ized and the empire made more homogeneous free and prosperous Success followed her armies in the few wars of national character in which tbe country was engaged aud if in the latter year her mind was wracked with care it may be ascribed directly toa reaction from the liberal policy of Gladstone and to a reversal of tnatfin stitutcd by him iu Sjouth Africa In all that implies the elevation of the musses their edu cation their physical comfort aid moral progress the reign of Victoria must stand lanpballeuged longevity has been extended by the practical adoption of s ientitp suggestions free dom of discussion and enlargement of suffrage have tees promoted and for tbe first time since Ireland became an Integral part of the empire there isan approximation to an actual as welt as a nominal accord v ihifc Hasty glance kt thjcLcondttlod i4p 4 J t sc it in which Great Britain finds itself at at the close of the long reign of Victoria has not taken Into view the great strides made within the period in the practical arts in sciences invention and the appliances of war as well as of peace For while the period cover the perfection of ocean navigation the development of the railroad the in vention of the telegraph the telephone of armored warships and long range cannon and small arms much of tbe credit of origination belongs to our own country and the progress of Great Britain by their use has been bY adaptation rather than discovery Nor while for the development of her ems pire can entire credit be given her since the day has passed when the will of the sovereign in that country can be called the directing power of the Government inasmuch as that is vested in the Ministry yet when it has been shown to what extent the exam ple Of an evil life can lower the moral tone of a country and weaken its pow for good full credit should be corded to the Queen for the

with soil will be the great farmer of the future sure he will Farming is a science and a business as well aud not a haphazard occupation to be taken up and put away in a careless or Indiffer ent manner Farming is no more to be carried on as it was 25 or lop years ago than manufacturing banking insurance or run ning a wholesale grocery house was carried on 25 or 100 years ago Conduct any of these businesses as they were done then and they will go Into bank ruptcy in six mouths Why then expect farming to be car rled on now as then Everything else has progressed whynot farming too the foundaUqn uu which all other busi ness restliiEverything comes out of the ground at last and what we eat and what we wear are produced in the raw state by the farmer Ileis necessary to Istence Does It not show the wonderful vi tality of the calling that it has fur nished a living to thousands when in so many igstWgces ithas been conducted exactly as it was 50 years ago And does it not show what great profit await those who take it up as a business and managp it wlh the same watchfulness as successful commercial interests are managed If some of the Kentucky boys who are leaving the forms to go into law medicine and business will study farming as they do law and medicine they will find it a profitable undertaking and an inde pendent one and at the same UtIle oneof the most hcalthfql gad

XJabell Penlck This popular couple have the best wishes of their many ffientis I i f r + r Embarrassing Appointments The President has appointed the son of Justice Harlan of the Supreme Court Attorney General for Porto Rico and the son of Justice McKenna to be Captain and Inspector General on the same island These appointments have been for some days the subjects of dignified but yet sharp comments InI the newspapers It has been freely assumed that there was Impropriety in naming the sous of the Judges who are to pass on questions of Porto Rican Government to places in the insular service It is a very delicate thing to evenI remotely intimate that so high a Court could be influenced by such family tai vors especially since we have had ItsoI industriously dinned into our ears furI four years that it is wrong to look upon any Court as a thing susceptible to hu man Influences So the opposition to the appointments Is put on the ground that they are an embarrassment to the Judges and some go so far as to say an affront to the distinguished jurists because they have the appearance of an effort to influence judicial opinions with patronage They have the flavor of trying to get votes on the bench byI the same means that Mr llanna for example employ to get votes for a Senatorship in a Legislature The Philadelphia Times goes so far as to say that no more shocking attack upon the independence of the ju diciary ever has been made It saysj tbe Justices named owe it to them selves and to their associates to forbid the acceptance of the appointments of fered to their sonsIt A sense of propriety would suggest this at any time it continues but under existing cir cumstances it is essential If the President is devoid of such sense it should be taught him and the Senate must refuse to confirm these indecent selection This is making an issue indeed Perhaps though the young men mayI be obstinate They are of course over 21 years of age and beyond the legal control of their eminent fathers Per haps they are beyond the limits of pa rental moral suasion It can hardly be possible that the Justices asked for tbe appointment of their sons especially when Porto Ri can establishment and possibly the existence of the office of AttorneyGen eral and Inspector General themselves are involved The Senate would not like to affront the President or the Justices by rejecting these nomina tions especially if tbo men are quali fied and moral fit which is probably the fact It would be almost huaiil iatiug confession fur tutf 1rcskleut to withdraw the nominations It may bu argued that nobody bas a right to keep these men down simply becautc tbelr fathers are Justices of the Supreme Court On the other band it may be suggested that a great many other pen pie have to submit tobeinrfkeptdowu There is very far short of u sufficient number of olflees to go round not withstanding the tendency to rapid multiplication After all the great majority must be private citizens Altogether it is a hard subject to treat The Enquirer Is disposed to congratulate itself that the settlement is not in its hands This muck may be said qnyhowi It would have been a lucky thing
