ducting Its business for Its own profit,
and that tin government bis no more

The Idea that transportation Is noth

the real character of the railroad ns n

If freight transportation Is merely
tonnage for sale then passenger trans
portation, niust also be tonnage for sale
and the passenger contemplating n trip
by rail should ask for bids from the
various railroads to see which will carry
him cheapest. If, as Is urged, the value
of tonnage is thoroughly understood by
every business firm In the United States
and la regularly used to extort special
favors from the railroads, then a strict
anti-rebate law should be welcomed by
the railroads as an ld to them In with
standing the pressure of the tonnage
sellers. More than that, they ought to
welcome legislation that will vest In
some public body the authority to sny
whethar a rate in excessive or not and
to substitute a reasonable rate, and thus
put an end to the tendency of their own
rate-makers to cut under established
schedulea under duress.
It Is to be noted, however, that the
railroad spokesman and publicity bu
reaus are all opposed to any legislation
thnt will Interfere with their unlimited
license to make rates its they please.
The statement emanating from Tarls
that a movement haa been started in
the Kuropenn chancelleries looking to
the formation of a new alignment of the
European powers is altogether credible.
It was pointed out before the close of
the war In the far east that however
the conflict should end changes in the
political relations of the powers was
Inevitable. It was seen that the ex.
lstlng order could not be perpetuated,
that a certain effect of the war would
te to create circumstances and condi
tions which could only be met by a
political readjustment which should em
brace all the leading lowers.
Obviously the old arrangements have
lost their significance and force. The
triple alliance lias become for all practi
cal purposes of no consequence. The
Franco-Kusslan compact la manifestly
of no value to the parties to it. The
overshadowing facta in tho situation are
that Great Britain and Jupan have uni
ted to preserve pence lu eastern Asia
and protect their mutual interests in
that quarter of the world, and that
tJroat Hvltain tind France, after gener
ations of hostility, are now in un al
liance which not simply makes them
friends, but Is un assurance of security
to each against aggression on the part
of other European powers.
The practically isolated powers of
Europe at present are Russia and Ger
many. Neither has a really substautlal
and valuable alliance. The pact be
tween France and Russia is scarcely
worth the paper upon which It Is writ
ten. The Uermnu allinuce with Austria
and Italy is not very much if any bet
ter. The controlling force lu European
affairs at this time is Great Britain
and that power is hardly less otent in
Oriental affairs. Quite naturully. there
fore, both Germany and Russia are man
ifesting a very earnest desire to culti
vate friendly relations with Great
Britain and also to be on the best of
terms with each other. It is au espe
cially notable fact lu the situation that
Germany seems anxious to be on the
most friendly terms with France.
What the outcome will 1k of this gen
eral tendency toward a rapprochement
of the powers cannot l? confidently pre
dicted, but there can be do chmht that
the immediate effect Is to strengthen
the cnauces of ieace being maintained
for an Indefinite time, with the possibil
ity that the powers ibay be Induced to
seriously consider a mutual agreement
for the reduction of armaments. It Is
now generally understood thst there will
be another pence conference and one of
the matters which will perhaps be con
sidered by It Is that of cutting down
armaments, whldi could le done under
a general system of pncihV alliances.

Horse Show, like the brunt of the bur

a reasonable degree to the demand that
the show should be made more popular
and brought within reach of all Admirers

COXTROL OF THE VASAL,
It Is somewhat strange that there
should have been any question as to
who was to assume final control of
Tanama canal affairs, but It will le en
tirely satisfactory to tho country to
know that they are to remain In the
lm:ds of Secretary Taft, as has been
decided by the cabinet. Whclher or not
It Is the proper function of the bend of
the Wnv department, rather than of the
secretary of state, to look after the

would be that It properly belongs to the
department which has control of our in
ternational affairs. Still the canal is
In a wny a military proposition and
therefore not Improperly n matter out

mllltnry department of the government.
That Secretary Taft should desire to
unburden himself of the task of looking
after the complicated affairs of the
building of the Tanama rnnal can be
enslly understood. He hna nlready de
volved upon him duties which nre some
whnt onerous. But after all these nre
less exnctlng than the president of the

Is no good reason why n member of tiio

There Is to be another contest at the

ITjo exnnilnntlons which Dr. Wiley,

This question of pure food regulation

American manufacturers of food prod

thnt all foods shall be adjudged pure
and whnt they ask In regard to the do

In view of the recent jail break of
five prisoners out of the Douglas county
bastlle aud the subsequent dismissal of
the Jailer in charge, it Is worthy of note
that the turnkey of the jail in La Crosse
county, Wisconsin, has Just been con
victed of assisting In the escape of two
notorious post office robbers and sen
tenced to a term of imprisonment for
fifteen months. In this case the evi
dence showed that the turnkey had ro

New York Tribune.
National prosperity is refleoted In tae big
gains rhade In postal receipts and In the
rapid expansion now ocoiirlng in the postal
service. Advance figures from the post
master genrrRl's report for 1M4-'0S Indicate
that In spite of tho recent vast extension
of the rural free delivery system the Post
office department's earning capacity is
steadily Increasing. The postal revenues
for lIM-'Ow wre greater by JlO.oOO.Onn than
those for H3-04, and outside the rural
branch of the service receipts now balance
experdlturos. The money order business
for 19fH-'Pfi reached a volume of Jl.dVl.liOO.OOrt
a goln of 30 per rent and 0,0no,(io more
Stamps, stamped wrappers and postal cards
were used last year thn In inM-'04. Wore
it not for the deflrt entailed by rural free
delivery the department could at present
more than pay Its way, and within the
next five of ten yenrs might be In a posi
tion to reeommend to congress some ma
terial reductions In postal rates.
It Is evident, however, that tho rural
delivery hns come to stay, and that the
expense of extending It must be faced In
any calculations for the future. The Initial
vest of establishing pew country routes
will continue to be a serious drain on
postal revenues. Yet the necessity of this
extension Is beyond question. As a sneuns
of education and of national development
the rursl free delivery experiment has
already proved Its worth, and as the sys
tem grows It will become more nearly
self-supporting. Indirectly it benefits trade
by bringing the country Into asy com
munication with the town snd city, and It
does a further public service by Increasing
enlightenment, comfort and contentment
In the rural districts. The cities are per
haps paying a little more than their present
proportion per capita of the cost pf the
postal service; but the country's gain Is
their gnln also, and .they will cheerfully
contribute to maintain and extend the rural
service until a new balance betwoen re
ceipts and expenditures can be struck and
both city and country pan share in a gen
eral decrease In postal charges, .
AMERICAN NAME TARNISHED.
Scandals In lllsth Plaees Make Honest
In his address of welcome at the one
hundred and fifty-second opening of Colum
bia university. President Nicholas Murray
Butler took occatlon to point out the forci
ble Illustrations now being afforded the
rising generation of the difference between
reputation and charocter. The American
people are receiving some painful lessons
In practical ethics, as President Butler
says, and of late we have been watching
reputations "melt away like snow before
the sun." President Uutler had In mind,
of course, the Insurance scandals. There
has. Indeed, been matter brought to llfht
to make an honest man blush.
Hamilton W. Mable. another American,
whose patriotism and cleanliness of thought
none will deny, even though he may not
rank as a financier, has Just returned from
Europe. Current scandals In commercial
life, he says, are the talk of the hour In
Europe and It Is a matter of shame to
any American to hear his countrymen re
ferred to as swindlers and sharpers. Mr.
Mable fears that our business prospects and
the respect In which our financiers have
heretofore been held have been changed.
Today In Eng'and, Germany and France
the American, when finance Is discussed,
must be prepared to meet the faint smile
and iult sneer of contempt.
This is a penalty we have to pay for
the wrong-doing of tho big men of the
American money world, who have long
abused confidence reposed In them and
managed thtlr trusts for their own profits
rather than for the benefits of the people
It will not do, however, to take a too
hopeless view of this situation. America
has no monopoly of crookedness In finance.
It is true that it Is hard to recall a time
when In foreign affairs so many names
of prominence were besmirched as ln the
present New York disclosures, but England
hss had its Hooleys of recent date, and
as for France, It Is the last one entitled
to set up as critic.
Principally, however, the saving feature
Is American public opinion. No man ran
for a moment doubt that the people of
our country are right. If men who have
sat In high places must fall, if family
names long honored must have the stain

that public opinion Is not In favor ot
sparing any one, but clamors rather for
full exposition of all the Iniquity and the
throwing out of the grafters and thieves.

Nay. grieve not for the dead alone
Whose song has told their heart's sad
Weep for the voiceless who have known
The cross without the crown of glorjfl
Not where Laucadlan breeses sweep
O'er Sappho's memory-haunted billow,
But where the glistening night-dews weep
On nameless sorrow's churchyard pillow.
O hearts that break and give no sign
Stive whitening lip and fading tresses
Till Death pour out his longed-for wine
Slow-drrpped from Misery's crushiog
If flinniiiK breath or echoing chord
To every hidden pang wi re given,
What endless melodies Were poured.
