The Hod Cross Association has
asked congress to take steps to
prevent any person or organization
other than the American Red Cross
society, from using their name and
emblem. Of late the use has becom
very general. This is done natural
ly t<> t|i(> detriment of the Red
i Cross society and a few people know
that the use of the name is punish
able by a heavy fine and imprison
ment as it is protected from infring
ment by its charter. When this be
comes generally known it is safe to
say those having usurped the name
with no intention of doing a wrong
or without knowledge of the charter
provisions will discontinue its use.

Indiana is considering the advisa
bility of licensing drinkers. This
I rather novel idea is not without pre
i cedent, when we come to think about
it. Wo have become so accustomed
to the idea of licensing the seller of
intoxicants, that the feasibility of
granting a permit to the drinker lias
been lost sight of. It lias become
a common practice to safeguard the
public, by requiring person engaged
in work that has attached to it great
risk or responsibility, to carry a li
cense showing their fittness for that
particular work. Alcohol, like elec
tricity, steam, dynamite, cot. is a
dangerous commodity when careless
ly handled, and there should appear
1 o incongruity in requiring that the
man about to tank up on it. first
show that he is capable of safely
i urrying the load.
* * *
The agitation over the coining city
i election is good, we cannot well give
i this matter too much thought nor
I too careful consideration. This is
a crucial period in the affairs of our
city. Falls City is just beginning to
largely realize the extent of her good
fortune and the wonderful opportuni
j ties that are knocking at her door.
! She is as a city just awakening to
, a conciousneEs of the magnitude of
her possibilities and also of her
responsibilities. The great question
uppermost in every mind is "What
next." Above all things, at this
time, we need to cultivate a dispo
sition favorable to the larger out
look. Nothing that is worthwhile c an
' be done from a norrow partisan stand
point. This is no time to rant about
abuses that may or may not exist.
Neither is it a time to vent ones
spleen for stage effect. But it is
a time to lay willing and strong hand
to the common task of building the
"greater Falls City. The man, who
at the present crisis cannot help
build, should at least show the good
grace to not tear down. We have too
great need of all our available force
to permit any of it to be used to our
loss or damage. In other words we
have nothing to waste. Therefore,
let the agitators, who* are being ex
ercised for the good of our city,
i lay this to heart, that what we most
i need is a feeling of good will, a
hearty spirit of co-operation, and
j the disposition to solve our problems
( peaceably. To the accomplishment of
\ this the Tribune pledges its strength
and influence, and will vouch for
| that of its faithful readers, also.

HEALTHY RACE BEST DEFENSE
Scientific “race breeding” to pro
duce better “crops of boys and girls"
was advocated tonight by William A.
Koever, professor of philosophy in
the Kansas state Agricultural College,
at the child welfare exhibit, in New
York last week.
"1 want Mr. Carnegie," he said,
‘‘put down another 10 million dollars
1 for the elimination of delinquency
through scientific race breeding
What we most need is to stop
the craze for making money and to
go more directly to making men.
"Better as a defense thmi all the
dreadnoughts is verility in a race,
through selective marriage and a bet
ter train ng of the young. Through
a scientific development of tire young
in the next fifty years, we could de
'■«. lop such a high type that no foes
won!)! : ttack us. Half a century of
such c 'tcnt’fic child training as the
interest on our war expense wj-ild

A SENSIBLE LAW
Seator Stone lias introduced a bill
iii tile Missouri legislature requiring
coup! s about to be married to submit
to a physical examination. Such a
la)) will necessarily meet with strong
iippc- .ion on tlie part especially of
the sentimental and the not over in
telligent, but it should meet with the
undivided support of all thinking peo
ple of whatever rank and station.
'I lie divorce evil can only be over
come by attacking it at its roots.
M isty anil illadvised marriages are
tiie great feeders of the divorce
mills. Here if anywhere prevention
is better than cure. The object of
tile law is wholly beneficial. That
in some cases it might work injury
iid hardship is conceivable. Never
thelisr, the object to bo achieved is
so im lortant that some risk may well
be incurred in order to have its ad
vantages. The law goes farther than
merely to .attempt to relieve the dt
’ orce mills from handling their un
happy grist. We pass stringent laws
regulating the mating of animals, but
permit the mating of our young peo
ple to go unregulated. We owe it
to posterity, to see that the next
generation is at least well born.
Other states have such laws. But
they are as yet all too few. And un
till they cover the country as a whole
and are generally enforced their re
strictions will be evaded quite large

POWER OF PUBLIC OPINION
New evidences arise daily that pro
gressive ideas regarding corporations
are getting into the inner circles of
George M. Reynolds, president of
the biggest bank in Chicago, and
next to the largest in the United
States, declared in favor of govern
ment supervision of the issue of rail
roarfsecurities, in testifying before th
railway securities commission, which
is investigating the subject.
Mr. Reynolds spoke of a changing
public sentiment, and he said that
“it is the desire of the moneyed in
terests more and more to conform to
the dictates of public opinion.” Simi
lar opinions have been voiced recent 1
by many of the men of large affairs
including George W. Perkins, 10. H.
Gary, \V. 1). Hines and \V. C. Brown.
Clearly, no intelligent man in Amer
iea can fail to realize that public
opinion, thoroughly aroused, is a
power which, soon or late, must dom
inate all other influences in this coun
try, and it is just as clear that pub
lic opinion is unalterably and over
whelmingly working toward holding
till big corporations to strict account
ing alike to their patrons and to
their stockholders.—Kansas City Star
