Richard tilney, former attorney gen
eral and secretary of state In the cabl
net of i irover Cleveland, Is the typical
representative of rock-rooted democracy
that cannot be moved from its ancient
moorings and refuses to adjust Itself to
twentieth century conditions. Mr. Ol
ney Is nn able Jurist, trained In the
stralght-laccd, state rights a4iool, who.
like the Rev. Jasper, refuses to believe
that "the earth do move."
While admitting that "the railroads
are the arteries of commerce, that deter
mine very largely the outcome of all
private enterprises and upon wh'lch
hinges too often the material well-being,
If not the very existence of towns, cities,
sen ports and large sections of country,"
Mr. Olney plants himself squarely In op
position to suiervlsion and regulation
of railroads by the national legislature.
He asserts that the railroads are pri
vate property and do not come within
the scope and Jurisdiction of rate regu
lation by congress or by any administra
tive body created by congress.
"The railroad," declares Mr. Olncy,
"la only one species of highways, and
what U true of railways must be true
of ordinary highways. The Jurisdiction
of the national government must be the
same In both cases." This Is eminently
sotind logic and a retrospective glance
should convince Mr. Olney that the
power of rate making on highways has
been exercised by municipal, state and
national legislatures since the days of
Washington and Jefferson.
Mr. Olney cannot be Ignorant of the
fact that In the District of Columbia
congress ha a for nearly a century ex
ercised the rate making power for all
vehicles used for hire that traverse the
public highways and streets of the na
tional capital. If congress has tho right
either to fix directly the rates for the
conveyance of passengers and freight In
the streets of Washington, or Indirectly
to have the rates established through the
Board of District Commissioners, that
have for years governed the city of
Washington, why has It not also the
right to establish reasonable transporta
tion rates over railroads In pursunnce of
the power vested In it to regulate com
merce between the states?
But Mr. Olney brushes aside all prece
dent and turns his face against the irre
sistible march of progress by pointing
backward to the exploded state rights
doctrine that would subdivide the rail
road systems of America and establish
terminals at every state line, although
every railroad in the country Is linked
to every other railroad, and every sta
tion agent will sell tickets and bill
freight to any other station in America
regardless of state lines.
Mr. Qluej-'g rock-rooted proclivities
are -most forcibly exhibited in the fol
lowing summary of conclusions on the
rate making power: "Ours is a govern
ment by both state and nation by po
litical parties, 'and to political rate mak
ing for railroads rate making by poli
ticians animated by partisan motives
and working for partisan ends the ob
jections of an economic and business
character are on the score of public pol
icy, generally as obvious as they should
What arrant nonsense! . In the very
nature of things ours is a government
that has always exercised its functions
through men affiliated with political
parties, and this condition is sure to
continue as long as the republic sur
vives. Are we, therefore, forever pre
vented from using the machinery of gov
ernment for the protection of its citizens
against excessive taxation imposed upon
them by common carriers? Are we to
permit these carriers to play the part of
Providence and leave them free to en
rich one class of patrons, or oue com
munity, and impoverish another class
of patrons and other communities Just
because the law makers and executive
officers of our government are affiliated
with political parties? If the logic of
Mr. Olney applies to railroads it would
apply to all other agencies created under
modern conditions for facilitating com
merce and effecting exchanges, but the
very 'suggestion repels the Idea.
THE BVtLDiSU OF CIIARALTSR.
Among the notable addresses at the
university openings was that of Presi
dent Butler of Columbia, who urged that
the building of character Is the niost im
portant work of our institutions of learn
ing. Ho said that if there Is failure to
form those traits and habits which to
gether constitute character all our
learning is nn evil. President Butler
said that Just now the American people
are having brought home to them with
severe emphasis the distinction between
character and reputation. "Of late we
have been watching reputations melt
away like snow before the sun, and the
sun In this case is mere publicity. Men
who for years have beeen trusted im
plicitly by their fellows, and so placed
In positions of honor and grave respon
sibility, are seen to be mere, reckless
speculators with the money of others
and petty pilferers of the savings of the
poor and needy." He declared that the
situation which confronts Americans to
day is due to lack of moral principle;
that the greed for gain and the greed
for iower have blinded men to the time
old distinction between right and
wrong. "Both among business men and
at the bar are to be found advisers,
counted shrewd and successful, who
have substituted the penal code for the
moral law as the standard of conduct."
Severe as this indictment Is It must
be admitted to be Just and it would be
well If more men occupj ing such a po
sition as that of the president of Colum
bia would with equal frankness, and
earnestness direct public attention to
that lack of moral principle which
makes possible the faults Dr. Butler
pointed out. What Is now being accom
plished through the exponura of men
who have been entrusted with positions
of honor and responsibility cannot fall
to have a remedial effect, but the public
Imlnd still needs to be kept aroused to a
proper understanding and appreciation
of the conditions referred to by the
president of Columbia. The leading ed
ucators of the land can be most Influen
tial In doing this and It Is quite within
Uie sphere of their duty hs Instructors.
cnx salaiuks i.v great DtiiTAirr.
Invidious comparisons are frequently
made In this country between the effi
cient, economic and Incorruptible admin
istration of municipal government In
Great Britain and the fast and loose,
inefficient and corrnptlon-rldden adniln'
Istratlons of American cities. But all Is
not gold that glitters and the popular
outcry against municipal extravagance
and graft is by no means confined to
American population centers.
Only four weeks ago a mass meeting
of taxpayers was held in Edinburgh,
Scotland, to oppose and denounce a sal
ary grab by the city cottncll and a pro
posed Increase of salaries of city offi
cials. Some of the speeches made at
this popular demonstration against mu
nicipal mlsgoveinment are duplicates of
speeches periodically made In American
One of the speakers, for example, de
clared that there was a great and grow
ing expenditure in the city and for that
matter In the country; that the amounts
of taxes levied for gas, water, elec
tricity, tramways and so on had come to
be exceedingly serious, and the people
were cautioned not to be overborne by
Another speaker said In seconding the
resolution protesting against the salary
grab that thousands of taxpayers of
Edinburgh were in many cases seriously
affected by the high rates, and he
thought his audience would agree with
him when he said that the town council
of Edinburgh had not the slightest Idea
of economy. In support of tills asser
tion the speaker quoted the Increased
salary list as follows: Chief constable,
or chief of police, from $4.2!0 a year to
$5.(h0; deputy chief constable, from
$1,750 to $2,000 a year; clerk of police,
from $2,500 to $3,000; city chamberlain
(comptroller), from $.'5,000 to $u250 a
Asa counter comparison it was stated
that the city of Manchester, with a pop
ulation of about 025,000 and a municipal
debt of $112,500,000, pays the city audi
tor $5,000 per annum; Liverpool, 710.000
population and $70,000,000 of debt, pays
its auditor $S,750; Birmingham, with
500,000 population and $75,000,000 of
debt, pays $7,000 per annum; Leigh,
450,000 population and $t!0,000,000 of
debt, pays $3,000; Sheffield, with a popu
lation of 433,000 and $42,500,000 debt,
pays $4,230; Glasgow, 782,000 population
and $80,000,000 of debt, pays $(1,500,
while Edinburgh, with 333.000 popula
tion and $20,000,000 of debt, pays $5,000.
When it Is borne in mfnd that the pur
chasing power of money is fully 30 per
cent greater In England than in Amer
ica, these municipal salaries would seem
to be fully aa high as those paid in
American cities of equal population with
very rare exceptions.
TO BECOME A MILITARY POWER.
Already the Chinese government ia
taking steps to become a military power.
A standing army is to be created and
its organization will be modeled upon
that of the Japanese army. It Is stated
that the young Chinese officers who,
having completed their military studies
in Japan, lately returned to China, are,
with the Japanese instructors placed
at the disposal of the Chinese govern
ment, busy organizing and training the
This movement on the part of China
to prepare for self-defense and to ad
minister its affairs with the protection
of its own army is the natural outcome
of the war. When that conflict came
China was In an utterly helpltss con
dition. Her territory was completely
at the mercy of the belligerents. Now
that this territory is to be restored to
her she intends to In future safeguard
it and in the carrying out of this pur
pose she is assured of the support of
Japan. The military example of that
power is the Inspiration to China to
create a standing army strong enough
to protect her territory and her Inter
ests. She will find little difficulty in
doing this, uuder the guidance of her
great neighbor. In a few years she can
have, if deemed necessary, an army of
half a million men, thoroughly dis
ciplined and emulating the spirit and
patriotism of the Japanese. Otit of her
vast population China can obtain sol
diers who may be relied upon in any
There will be some to see In this
movement a menace to the western
world. It will be regarded as a phase
of the "yellow peril," as to which Em
peror William and some others profess
to be apprehensive. It will be said that
wheu China has become a military
power, under the Influence and guidance
of Japan, those nations will unite for nn
aggressive policy against the rest of the
world. It is easy to conjure up a bogy
of this klud, but It is always to be
borne In mind that, so far at least as
Japun is concerned, her Interests have
become almost as great In the western
as In the eastern world and the neces
sity for remaining on terms of peace
and amity with the former was never
before so strong as now. How well she
realizes this is shown In the alliance
with Oreat Britain. Japan will keep
China In a proper course, by her own
example teaching that nation the wis
dom and expediency of strictly observ
ing international obligations, respecting
the rights of other nations and cultivat
ing friendship with all.
Not only will there be no diinger in
China becoming a military power, but
its effect will be to better assure the
maintenance of peace in eastern Asia.
It will be a safeguard against any de
signs on the part of European powers
upon the territory pf the Chinese em
pire. Had Chlua possessed a large and
well disciplined army two years ago
there would have been no war In Man
clmrla, because Russia would not have
been permitted to gain the foothold
there she did. It was Chinese helpless
ness that gave Russia her opiortunity.
While there Is no danger for perhaps a
generation to come of Russia again be
coming aggressive In Asia, it is well
that the Oriental powers give her no
chance to do so. The fact that she still
has a foothold In that quarter of the
world Is not to be lost sight of and
Russian ambition Is sleepless and tire
less. China is unquestionably pursuing
a Judicious policy in building up an
army capable of defending hot territory
and protecting her Interests.

That President Roosevelt acted Judi
ciously In appointing a commission to
Investigate departmental business meth
ods the developments so far made amply
attest. There was no restriction placed
upon the authority of the commission In
prosecuting its inquiries. It was in
structed to make its investigation in the
several departments and bureaus thor
ough and this has been done. One
notable result has been the disclosure of
mismanagement and waste in the gov
ernment printing office, leading to a
change In the head of that establishment
and certain needed reforms in the ad
ministration of its affairs.
Another matter which the commission
has been looking into is that of the sup
ply accounts of the several departments,
resulting in the discovery that no two
purchasing agents pay the same price
for articles bought by them. It is stated
that the investigation has already dis
closed startling discrepancies in the
prices paid for the office supplies used
by the government Purchasing agents
and chiefs of supply divisions explain
the differences in the prices paid on the
ground that some departments buy In
far larger quantities than others, but
this is scarcely a satisfactory explana
tion. It is said the president has under
consideration the advisability of estab
lishing a general purchasing agency for
all government supplies and probably
will recommend to congress that this be
done. It Is thought that the establish
ment of a single central bureau to act as
a purchasing agent for all the depart
ments would result In an annual saving
to the government of hundreds of thou
sands of dollars In the cost of articles
and also do away with much of the
labor required under the present system.
It is further pointed out that there
would be a notable advantage In bring
ing the government's purchases of sup
plies under the direct supervision of one

get higher pay and do less work, and so on
through the whole evil development. And
