r.llls were Introduced at the last SOK-
Ion of congress making the holding up
f trains e'ngnued u Interstate conimorcc
i national offense , punishable under the'
IUVH of the United States , but no action
H'.vond mere reference was taken on
ny of them. The several train rob-
lerles that have recently occurred , one
if them within a few miles of the mi-
lonnl capital , will probably h'ave the
'Itect to Induce congress at the coming
session to give more attention to the
proposed legislation , and perhaps to
; as.s a law that will authorize the use
> f the national power In hunting down
hose who commit this crime. It appears
n be certain that unlit this is done and
snclf legislation Is supplemented by
stringent state laws for the punishment
: > f train .robbing this crime will continue
: o prevail with periodical outbreaks
sui'h as have been witnessed during the
last two years.
This matter was discussed at a recent
neetlng of the presidents of the express
companies , who want national leglsla-
lou. They say that the state laws and
the state courts fail to secure the pun-
.shiuent of the guilty , both because tbi' '
state court's do not want to Incur thr
xpenso of a trial , and also because when
Limm Is arraigned on the charge of
rain robbery his neighbors sympathlzt
.vltli . him and sunlit him when they try
him. Probably there is not very good
grounds for this latter statement , but it
s n fact that tate authorities have not
generally been * as diligent in hunting
down this class of criminals as In tin
case of other classes , the feeling , seem
ing to be that this work belongs initial }
to the express companies , and that If
they do not properly protect "themselves
they must suffer the consequences. The
express companies have never attempted
to avoid doing their share In hunting
down train robbers. Whether their
losses by robbery were small or large
they have always endeavored to securi ,
the apprehension and punishment of the
perpetrators. It has been wild that al
oHt , If not quite , ns much money has
been expended by the companies In this
work ns the amount of the losses thej
Hut however this may be , It wll
hardly bu seriously contended that tin.
sreater rnrt of tins task of bringing trail
robbers to justice ought to be dcvolvec
on the express companies. Certalnlj
the whole public Is Interested In tin
suppression of this form of crime , whlcl
la not Infrequently accompanied wltl
the shedding of blood. Manifestly It I
the duty of each political community to
prevent crime within Its awn limitsam
it Is also the duty of tmch community to
detect crime , to pursue criminals and t
procure their conviction. It seems to b
an entirely sound proposition that It 1
Just ns much the business of the com
tmmlty to prevent robbery on therai :
roads as on the highways ; Just as inuc

Ish , the looting of express earn as th

dlUlculty la that til

lerfonnance of their duty ns they ought

ircvcntlon and punishment of tralu rob *
) lng are undoubtedly needed , ami there
ppenrs to be no good reason why there
lould not -national legislation nppll-
able to this crime when committed on
rains engaged in interstate commerce.
At the same time It Is necessary to oh-
crve that the express companies should
mploy every reasonable precaution to
rotect themselves from roblwry. Gov-
rnmcnt protects private citizens nnd
mulshes Ittn'glnrs who break Into their
louses , but the citizens know that they
re expected to take proper precautions

cded that the express companies have n
Ight to public protection It Is not too
inch lo expect that they will use every
roper means at their command to pro-

Charles Dudley Warner has given over
part of the space allotted to the. Kd-
tor's Study In the current Harper's
lonthly to a severe atralgnment of the
ubllc schools as ineie machines for the
evelopment of automatons to lit Into
ur scheme of universal suffrage. He
eghis by picturing a hypothetical sys-
'iii of popular education , such as he in
mates existed In the I'nlted States
bout llfty years ago , In which the
chools were In the control of committees
lectetl by a majority , without practical
xperlence lu the training of the mind ,
cllcvlng that what the pupil .needs is
ontact with the greatest number of top

erfectlon of the system limn of the
ntelllgence of the operators or of their
tness for their occupation. Our c-ducn-
loual machine , we are told , has been
vonderfully perfected since 18'Kt. No
ne can withhold his admiration of It.
Jut the Improvement has been In the

like the initiative and to develop orlgl-
ni 1 methods. The teachers ( n the public
ehools do not , In Mr. Warner's opln-
on. conform to these requirements. In
ils hypothetical system of education a
great proportion of the teachers , if not
majority , were In fact "Ignorant.youug
glils or unformed young men , " and in
his respec-t he does not think we are'
ible to point to any advance. Kveu
l ese teachers who are really able and
nmpetent make their schools as giwd as
he system will permit , but they are
it'ld back by the machine of which they
ire apait. . For Individuality in oducn-
ion we are directed to the old academy.
\ few si cIn ens lemaln In various p. rts
if the country and maintain reputations

irospered or lagged ns their head maser -
er has changed , the personality of the
llrector being the foundation of their
Kucces . They are In almost every instance -
stance private schools , and their Income
depends upon their attractiveness , Mr.
Warner Is inclined to believe that the
ecent Increase In the number of private
schools and In the number of boys nnd
girls attending them Is to be viewed as
return to the old academy system. To
use his words , "this movement Is not ac
. ounteU for by an undemocratic reluc-
: ance to submit well-bred children to the
association of the private schools , but by
the , failure of these schools to give the
sort of Intellectual and moral training
leslred that Is , the sort of. education
that raises the Ideal In life. "
But Is It not a serious question
whether the private schools are today
actually accomplishing their work any
better than the- public schools ? And If
they were doing MO , would It not be an
irgument more for the Improvement of
the public schools than for the extension
of the private schools ? There Is much
that Is of value In the democratic atmos
phere In schools that are open to all
, illke. There is discipline In the very
muchlne-Ilke exactness with which nil
pupils are required to pass through the
same recitations and examinations. If
personality and individuality can be se
cured in the teachers who are engaged
In the private schools , why can they uol
also be had in the public , schools ? And
as to the pay of teachers , it Is doubtful
whether on the whole those In prlvafV
schools are more liberally treated than
those In public schools. There Is no rea
son why the public schools should not
offer every advantage of the prlvah
school , except the exclusive association
If they do not at the present time the
work of our educators should consist li
Improving the public school systen
rather than In building up a new systen
of private schools.
The bureau of labor Is actively en

The Investigation will not be confined
o the United States , liTlt will be ex-
ended to other countries , because In
orclgn countries more Industries are
fill conducted by manual labor than In

iloug every line pursued , because an In-
pulry of this kind cannot be' frequently
mdei taken. Therefore no correspond-
nee will be relied on In the gathering of
ttatlstlcs. Personal visits will be made

be relied upon. For the cost of labor ,
