THE QUESTION OF REVEXLE,
Congressman Tawnpy, chairman of
the house committee on appropria
tions, will hardly arouse much enthu
siasm In the country by his proposi
tion to restore some of the war taxes
as a means of providing additional
revenue for the government. Mr.
Tawney explains that the receipts
from customs and Internal revenue
collections are not sufficient to main
tain the government and that there
la apparently no way to limit tho ap
propriations to bring them within the
The American people havrf never
taken kindly to war taxes In times of
war, much less In times of peace. The
greatest statesmanship was exercised
from 1864 to 1879 to remove the war
taxes and place the country on a
sound financial basis, with a credit
above all other nations. A restora
tion of the war taxes at this time
would be a confession of governmen
tal weakness. Mr. Tawney explains
that nearly 70 per cent of the expen
ditures of the government are either
for paBt wars or In preparation for
possible wars of the future. Even
that does not Justify the levy of war
taxes. This expense, it is reasonable
to assume, has reached its maximum.
The pension appropriations will natu
rally become rapidly less each year
and the expenditures for the army
nd navy, now that both have been
rmly established and organized, can
be materially cut down with entire
safety to the nation.
Heretofore the appropriations for
river and harbor improvements have
been paid from the general fund of
the government. With a systematic
plan of improvements adopted, the
money for carrying on the work
should be raised by the sale of bonds,
Just aa the Panama canal work If
being carried on. After that receipts
and disbursements should ' be so ad
justed as to make no further drain on
the volume of money still left in the
federal treasury. The need of addi
tional sources of revenue is generally
apparent, but the public will hardly
look upon the war tax scheme aa the
proper solution of the problem.
THE SHAME OF A CITY.
Springfield, the capital of Illinois
and the home of Lincoln, the emanci
pator, has failed to redeem itself from
the disgrace it harvested last August,
when a score of negroes lost their
lives in a race riot. At the time of
the riots the detectives and tho news
papers secured and, published the
names of 117 persons' who were
charged with having played star or
minor parts In the saturnalia of mur
der, arson and malicious destruction
of property that characterized the
conflict between the races. The grand
ury, which has been in session for
weeks, has adjourned without return
ing an indictment against any of the
leaders in the race riots.
The men who led the riots and
boasted of their part in It have not
been indicted, and it is admitted that
those indicted played but little part
In the real disturbance and can not,
in any event, be severely punished.
The failure of the grand Jury to do
Its duty and of the prosecutors to see
that justice was done is as discredit
ing to Springfield as was the rioting.
The citizens by mocking the law sim
ply Invite new assaults upon it.
Springfield has apparently placed
itself on the plane with some of the

fiance of the law and all authority.
THE AGREEMENT WITH JAPAX.
The full text of the new diplomatic
agreement between the United States
and Japan, which has been announced
from Washington, must put an end to
the talk of HobBon and other Amer
lean jingoes about the probability or
possibility of a war between the two
nations and, which is more important,
marks a distinctive triumph for Mr.
Root in carrying out the trade policy
in China which was Inaugurated by
his predecessor, the late John Hay.
When the original "open door
policy was declared by Mr. Hay Rus
sia was the chief party to the agree-
ment with the United States, as Rus
sia was then the dominant factor in
Manchuria. After the Russ-Jap war
the Japanese, in the treaty of Ports
mouth, reaffirmed the open door pol
icy for Manchuria, but have not been
very active in carrying the policy into
effect. Secretary Root rocently re
quested, in a diplomatic way, a state
ment of Japan's policy and intentions
in China and on the Pacific. As a re
suit the agreement has been reached
and signed by. the proper authorities.
In brief, it provides that the United
States and Japan will together under
take the task of preserving peace on
the Pacific in maintaining "the integ
rity of China and the principle of
equal opportunity for commerce and
Industry of all nations in that em
Nothing could be more satisfactory
to the United States. It has secured
all It has ever sought in China and
has gained an ally in Japan against
the oft-threatened dismemberment of
China by other European powers. One
section of the agreement, following
the declaration respecting the integ
rity of China, is very significant. It

atatua quo aa above described or the prin

fore not a recorded policy of the ad
ministration, but simply a memoranda
between two powers indicating a plan
of harmonious action in case of cer
tain emergencies. The significance
of the agreement note that It is not
referred to as a "treaty" is that it
gives tangible form to the professlont
of friendship between Japan and this
nation and the basis for co-operation
of the two nations in the protection
of the open door trade policy in China.
Incidentally It paves the way for
easier- agreement with Japan on the
Immigration question and a new

ELECTIVE Cri OFFICES.
Among other recommendations of
the charter revision committee, which
has been holding sessions on the
Omaha charter, is one that the list of
leetive municipal offices shall include
the mayor, the city clerk, the city at
torney, the city engineer, the building
Inspector, boiler Inspector and the
health commissioner. If this recom
mendation were adopted It would add
to the number of elective city offices
those of city engineer, boiler inspector
nd health commissioner.
We do not believe this would be 8
step in the direction of better mu
nicipal government, but, on the con-
rary, that it would be a step back
ward from the most approved rrincl-
ples of modern city government. The
tendency everywhere is to concentrate
authority in municipal administration
rather than to scatter It, and to hold
the mayor and council, or the commis
sioners where the commission form
has been adopted, responsible for. the
proper working of all the administra
tive machinery. Many positions In
the city government require technical
knowledge and skill in addition to ex
ecutive ability and making them elec
tive involves an unnecessary risk of
poor or incompetent material, to say
nothing of impairing the confidential
relations that should exist between
the executive and his subordinates.
The Bee protested against the
change that made the city attorney
and the building Inspector elective
officers and Its objections in these
cases have been fully sustained as
shown by the subsequent course of
events. For the same reason it be
lieves it would be a mistake to make,
as is now proposed, elective offices for
the city engineer, boiler inspector and
health commissioner. It would, In
our Judgment, be far preferable to
restore the city attorneyship and the
building Inspectorship to the former
status, which made them appointive
by the mayor.
THE TYPE WRITTEN SIGNATURE.
Tho Board of Appraisers at New
York has made an extreme decision
to tho effect that tho signature to a
check may be written in typewriter
and still be good and acceptable, so
long as the expenditure for which the
check is drawn is authorized and
made by the proper parties. The de
cision came up on a protest against
the acceptance of a check, because the
aw requires that the check shall be
n "writing." The board promptly
ruled that it made no difference how
the "writing" was made, whether
with ink, pencil, stencil, typewriter or
any other old way, so long as the
party receiving the check had evi
dence that it was properly drawn.
Old-fashioned folks will be disposed
to protest against the decision of the
customs appraisers. The typewriter
has already done enough to make
hand writing a lost art and there
should be some provision against al
lowing the signature, the last vestige
of courtesy and individuality in cor
respondence and official documents
from being done by machinery.
THE FLIGHT OF CASTRO.
All Venezuela and most of the
diplomatic world is taking keen in
terest in the report that Clpriano
Castro, the dictator of Venezuela, in
tends to make his permanent home in
Paris. It is known that Castro is a
very sick man. He must have been,
or he would not have left Venezuela
at a time when conditions are critical
and his strong personality is needed
to maintain his hold on power. Now
Caracas has the story that Castro does
not Intend to return to Venezuela
but, having amassed a great fortune,
proposes to follow the example of for
mer Venezuelan presidents and enjoy
the rest of his days in Europe.
Conditions In Venezuela are com
plicated by the fact that CaBtro has
left the relus In the hands of Vice
President Gomez, an unknown quan
tity. If Gomez were a strong charac
ter, he would follow the custom of
Venezuela and entrench himself in
power during Castro's absence. To
that extent, his lack of force is an
element In Castro's favor. On the
other hand, Gomez' Inexperience and
inability are rirtalr. to be taken ad
vantage of by Castro'B enemies, who
have been trying for years to
foment revolutions against him. They
will now have an opportunity tc
strengthen their forces and may suc
ceed in the overthrow of the Castro
government. Whatever the result
most of the world will view with com
placency any development that will
eliminate Castro as a ruling and tur
bulent factor in Venezuelan affairs.
"How can Mr. Roosevelt be an ed

The fees collected by the state offi
cers during the last two years amount
to more than $300,000, and as the fee
laws were passed by a republican leg

made and accounted for by republican
officials, it is probably not asking too
much to suggest that credit be given
the republican party for this, at least.
If Governor Shallenberger is the
good and great man his friends allege
he is he will not disturb the heads of
the state Institutions, even to satisfy

apparent to require argument.

On the nla-M or March 29 last a Mrs.
Falmer, a truest In a Pan Francisco hotel,
waa awakened by a nianked man, who
struck het with the butt of hlu revolver,
leaving her for dead. Sunday last O. B.
Standlffo, the burg-lnr, wan captured In
New York. A physical wreck from the
effects of opium used to deaden remorse,
he nsked, "Is she dead?-' When told that
Mrs. Palmer was living-. Stancllffe ex
claimed, "Thank God!" The Incident
prompts the New York World to ask and
discuss the question, "Can a man cscHpe
his conscience?" saying: "Greek myth
ology personified the Eumenldcs, 'Avenging
Furies.' forever pursuing the sliedder of
blood until he gave up his guilty secret.
Every age. has Its writer, who repeats the
story. KuHpldes relates the tragedy of
Orestes. Bhakespe-rro has portrayed the ag
ony of Macbeth, Poo has told of the 'Imp
of the Perverse' and 'The Pluck Cat.' Hul
wer of 'Eligene Aram.'. John II. PrentU In
'The Case of Dr. Horace' put the question
squarely: Is It possible for a murderer
to remain silent? Even though the guilty
secret may never be confessed in words,
the Impulse,, to revisit the scene of crime
can rarely bo resisted.
"True, there, may be exceptions. I.om
broso speaks of 'moral Imbeciles' who lack
entirely a sense of right and wrong. The
Sicilian bandit and the Kentucky feudist
of today, who to all Intents are 'throw
backs.' may escape the vision of their
crimes. But a conclusion cannot be drawn
from abnormal types. The ordinary mur
derer cannot elude his sens of Isolation,
and with maddenlriK Iteration the blood of
the victim crleth from the ground.' "
"One of the most Interesting things to
me In connection with this Job," said the
veteran keeper of the Bronx Park Zoo,
quoted by the New York Press. "Is the
peculiar fascination women have for cer
tain animals and their utter lack of In
tereat In others. Of course, as a rule, men
are more Interested than women, generally
speaking, In wild beasts. But the mascu
line Interest lies In an admiration or phys
ical qualities or a curjoslty to find out at
close range how the creature lives. The
woman's feeling, on the other hand, nine
times out of ten, Is one of rapt fascina
tion. Impossible to overcome when she la
close to certain creatures of the woods.
"This emotion never manifests Itself for
the enters of grass. For the elephant or
deer the average woman feels no real In
terest whatever. It Is toward the devour
ers of flesh, particularly the felines, that
your wife or sister or cousin feels drawn
in that Inexplicable way. You must spend
days In the Hon house In order to appre
ciate fully the way In which women stand
spellbound before those cages. But great,
est of all Is tho fascination of the reptiles.
I have seen women become absolutely un
conscious of the outer world In their con
templation of motionless snakes. A few
days ego a woman stood for more than
two hours before tho king cobras. She
looked like the wife of a worklngman who
made fair pay. I'll bet if you gave her a
book on snakes she wouldn't read 100
words of It."
Sbme of the means resorted to by those
New York corporations which still remain
inimical to the public service commission,
and by newspapers In sympathy with them,
to discredit the commission are anything
but righteous. For Instance, It was noised
abroad a few days ago that the Erie rail
road had been compelled tot withdraw the
commutation rates heretofore given children
attending actiois Jn oltles on Its line, lea
son: An alleged ruling by the commission
that the said rates gave an Illegal prefer
ence to some passengers over others. The
fact turns out to be that the commis
sion never made any such ruling. On the
contrary. It notified the company that the
continued use of tho tickets referred to
waa "extremely desirable," and that their
proposed discontinuance waa "not de
manded under any construction of law.'
The result Is as in almost every Instance
where It Is attacked added popularity for
the commission, Instead of the ' odium
sought to be thrust upon U.
It has been discovered that the large
cantilever bridge which Is officially named
the Queensboro bridge and Is popularly
known as the Blackwell'a Island bridge Is
a strong electromagnet just now, though of
fluctuating strength. The discovery was
made by U. Crlchton Huggins, one of the
engineers retained by the Queensboro
Bridge Celebration committee to Investigate
the security of the steel structure. Mr.
Huggins says that when the concrete floor
la laid down the magnetism will be less
notlceuble, and that It will never do the
bridge any injury. Mr. Huggins, who wears
metal plates on the bottom of his shoe heels,
noticed that his feet clung to the bridge
when he walked over It. That led to a de
tailed examination. Now the workmen
amuse themselves on the day the magnet
ism is most powerful by hanging bolts
from the steel beams of the bridge. Mr.
Huggins thinks that the steel structure
gathers Its electricity from the generating
plants near both ends of the bridge and
from tho plant on Blackwell'a Island. He
says that all big steel bridges that are near
such plants gather electricity In this way,
and that the phenomenon Is noticed on both
the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges,
though the former has been painted so
many times that It is now more or less
Insulated, and gathers less electricity than

Then she opened fire again.
