Traffle on the Rivers.
An object lesson for those Inter
ested In encouraging river transporta
tion ( contained In a statement of
Captain Ellison, who has spent years
In boating on the Ohio and Mississippi
rivers, showing that river traffic has
been better maintained on the Ohio
that on any otter of onr rl?ers. et
the Ohio'- Is littles,, f ofy, better
adapted to the purpose than the Mis
souri. He admit -through traffic has
been largely absorbed by the railroad
and gives a cogent reason, but main
tains boat service In .the local field
has been Increased In recent years on
tho Ohio and lower Mississippi..
Lack of channel Improvements, he
asserts, ha made long haul river
traffic so uncertain in time Of delivery
hat higher-priced rail transportation
has driven wateC routes from the field
nd this cannot be changed without
the expenditure of large sums under
government direction. Improvements
extensive enough to meet th condi
tions cannot be secured except by a
howing of feasibility, and no better
method of making the showing can be
devised than utilizing the rivers for
local traffic.
The pertinence of this suggestion
can be seen by scanning any river and
harbor bill of recent years. The Ohio
Iver receives more money than any
Imilar length of river and it Is
argely because proof is offered that
he river is navigable and that the
facilities created will be- used. One
boat carrying traffic on the Missouri
would be worth .more than psges of
engineers' reports and theoretical rea
sonings. '
Edward Everett Hale.
In tbe death of Edward" Everett
Hale the Unitarian church loses its
best known clergyman, the world of
letters one of its. greatest lights and
humanity one of Its kindliest and
most inspiring figures. Before men
now of middle age were born his
scholarly attainments and mental
virility had attracted wide attention
and he bas continued to grow in in
fluence and personal esteem until,
filled with years and good works, finis
Is written to his career. V
Edward Everett Hale's genius was
not the meteoric kind which flashes
across the horizon and as suddenly
disappears, bat rather that which en
dures. As a theologian he never
shirked defense of his faith, but tn
his controversies there was a charity
for the opinions of others which left
no scars. While his literary contribu
tions were many and varied, his "Man
Without a Country" is the most far-
famed and by many good Judges has
been selected as the best short story
In the English language. It is unique
in conception, strongly written . and
teaches a lesson In patriotism unex
celled by any work of fiction. . The
man or woman who has not read It
bas missed something of value in life.
Naturally a man of his tempera
ment and environment was a promi
nent figure in the anti-slavery agita
tion and be fairly shared with Phillips
snd Garrison the honors and burdens
of that struggle which culminated in
the civil war. He was the last sur
vivor of the coterie of brlllant literary
men New England gave to the world
in the middle and latter part of the
last century.
Smuggling; in Chinese.
What appears to.be trie most ex
tensive scheme in recent years to
evade the Chinese exclusion laws has
been unearthed And culminated in ar
rests in Chicago. The plan was an
audacious one and required great In
genuity to work It out, carrying the
Chinamen from the Mexican border
to Chicago before they were brought
to the surface. The game must neces
sarily be a profitable one or men
would not take such chances of Im
prisonment. ' "
The smuggled Chinaman, of course,
waa expected to repay the cost and a
profit proportioned to tbe risk to the
fellow Chluamah who had advanced
the price. No greater Object lesson
could be drawn of the difference be
tween the scale of . living of the ori
ental and the 'American laborer, for
these smuggled Chinamen are all of
the laboring class. Speedy repayment
of such a a would be a practical
impossibility . with American stand
ards of living, but not so with the
Chinaman, although his earnings are
far below that Of white labor.
Tbe saddest picture of all, however,
Is contemplating the lot of Chinese
labor at home. What must be the
condition in China when men are will
lng to take such risks and work un
der practical slavery for years to re
pay the sum represented by steam
ship passage, smugglers' fees and the
toll of the Chinese go-between?
American Capital in' China.
American money is to assist In
building a great, railroad, in China.
With any other country this would
mean nothing except mat there was
a surplus of capital here seeking In
vestment. - Germsn, English and
French bankers were all striving to
secure the loan, and Jt was only
through the Influence of President
Taft that Americas bankers were ad
roitted to the-syndicate. Custom is
an almost insurmountable barrier in
China and it has been the rule that
the nation furnishing tbe money for
railroads and other enterprises to de
velop any section of that vast empire
should practically monopolise its for
eign trade.
The loan is made to construct
system of roads opening up a large
territory hitherto Isolated from for
eign commerce; and when It waa an
nounced It had been placed In Ger
many there was much dissatisfaction
in other ' countries. President Taft
THK BKF,:
and Secretary Knot at once busied
themselves in behalf nf the t'nitel
States and secured a division of the
loan. This is particularly gratifying
to cotton goods manufacturers and
dealers In foodstuffs, tn both of which
lines the Chinese are large customers
and In the former Germany Is our
most persistent competitor. With the
Philippines at the door of ' China,
American trade has an excellent base
of operations In the orient and rea
sonable assurance of protection and
this country could not complacently
see China's Immense trade drift into
other hands.
Politically there are powerful rea
sons for not wishing to see Germany
or any other power secure an unneces
sarily strong foothold in China. So
long aa the United States holds th
Philippines the domination of China
by other natlona to our exclusion
would be fraught with danger. The
balancing of power in China ts essen
tial to peace in the orient, Just as It
has been necessary In Turkey to keep
Eg rope quiet.
Spurious Nonpartisanship. ,
The iiea of a nonpartisan judiciary Is
right. The large majority of the peopl
believe In It and deelre It. The only ques
tion la how to eecurr It In auch a manner
aa to defeat the plot of the scheming
special intereata and safeguard the popu
lar welfare. World-Herald.
The idea of a nonpartisan Judiciary
Is attractive, but the conclusion that
to secure nonpartisanship we have to
elect democrats to the bench Is no
necessary part of It. It Is a trifle early
to commence on the fall campaign, but
Inasmuch as the World-Herald has
started its- customary dust-throwing
we may as well clarify the atmosphere
little bit at this time. V
It might Just as well be understood
now as later that the nonpartisan elec
tion act passed, by the late democratic
legislature is one of the most partisan
pieces of legislation ever put on the
statute books. Its purpose Is not to
improve our courts or take politics out
of our educational institutions, but
simply a plot of scheming democratic
politicians to regain the foothold which
the demo-pops once had 4n these
places and which Ihey had forfeited.
The rank hypocrisy and Insincerity
of the World-Herald la conclusively
proven by the indelible record.
In 1897 the demo-pops elected Silas
A. Holcomb, a Bryan populist, to be
supreme Judge, and in that campaign
the World-Herald's chief argument
was a plea for nonpartisanship and a
misrepresentation that a bench made
up solidly of three republican Judges
would be offensively partisan.
In 1899 the demo-pops elected John
J. Sullivan; a Bryan democrat, to be
supreme Judge, and again in that cam
paign one of the World-Herald's chief
arguments was a plea for nonpartisan
ship, urging that the bench should
consist of one republican, one populist
and one democrat.
In 1901 the opposing candidates for
supreme Judge ere Samuel H. Sedg
wick,, republican, and Conrad Hollen-
beck, . democrat. But among the
demo-pops nonpartisanship immedi
ately lost all Its glamour. The argu
ments previously put forward would
have compelled the World-Herald to
support the republican in order to pre
vent the eourt from becoming solidly
demo-pop, but, of course, it did noth
ing of the kind. It was not a question
of nonpartisan politics then at all. To
the World-Herald it was "Hollenbeck
the man," whose personality alone
should insure i his preference. Ne
braska by 'that time had become re
publlcan.and a straight-out party plea
for democratic success would have
been hopeless.
On the regents of the State univer
sity tbe record of the-demo-pops and
World-Herald Is equally .convicting.
The Board of University Regents con
sists, or six memDers, oi wnicn tour
constitute a majority. In . 1897 the
demo-pops elected their two candidates
Von Forell and Kenower. In 1899
they elected two more Teeters and
Rich giving them 'a majority of tbe
board. Were they willing to let it
stand at that? Not for a moment.
In 1901 they nominated Hawksby and
Bayston and made a supreme effort to
capture all six places. No crocodile
tears about a nonpartisan management
of the university in the World-Herald
then. Tbe two demo-pop candidates
were the 'best men because they were
the fusion nominees, and if the World
Herald bad had its way the republicans
would have' had no representation on
the board whatever. It happens that
tbe whirligig of. time has reversed the
situation, so that the Board of Regents
is now made up entirely of republican
members and the demo-pops naturally
would like to get back under cover of
spurious nonpartisanship.
Confederate veterans object to a
statue of southern womanhood belted
and armed for physical combat. Tbe
southern woman, like other women,
doubtless possesses physical courage,
but that, is not the quality which a
strong man most admires and wants
to see perpetuated in bronze.
Secretary Wilson delivered the ad
dress at the dedication of the greatest
agricultural college ball In the world
at Ames. The work of the scientific
agriculturist is being fittingly recog
nlied and the progressive agricultural
states are providing needed facilities
for prosecuting the work.

A short seeaion with the supply board
of the government convinced Washington

door. Now the combiner ara falling over
each other in their haste to get the Job at
current prices, and prevent out-rater com
ing In. Evidently the trust buster ar
till able to cut some le In Washington.
During the present night session of the
senate an immense lantern ts lighted in the
capltol dome. This light can be een all
over Washington. It la a survival of a cus
tom when newspaper were Infrequent and
telephones were unknown. It waa intended
as a -notification to all members of con
gress and other interested in legislation
that a night session was on. - Like many
other quaint customs in the capital of tho
nation this one has survived Its original
purpose.
' Captain Samuel C. Lemly, judge advocata
general of the navy during the Spanish
American war and prosecutor of Rear Ad
miral Schley in the famous court of in
quiry, has been an inmate of St. Elisa
beth's hospital for the Insane In Washing
ton for nearly a year.
Worry over the Sampson-Schley contro
versy shattered hia reason. It Is said. It I
understood that Captain Lemly never re
covered from the hard work performed at
the Schley trial. That waa tha most noted
work of his naval career.
The affliction of Captain Lemly calls at
tention once more to the strange fatality
that has followed those who were con
cerned In the Sampson-Schley, controversy.
Admiral Sampson himself, who waa the
storm center of the great trial, was af
flicted fatally at the time of the agitation.
His affection was described as aphasia,
nd it was of so serious a nature that he
could not appear at the trial. He died
shortly afterward.
It la certain that brooding over the causes
which brought ' about the trial and which
divided officers and men in the navy Into
violent factions helped materially to pro
duce and aggravate Admiral Sampson's
trouble.
The truth is that the Sampson-Schley
controversy never ha been aettled and
every now and then it break out In con
versation at the Navy department.
About a year ago this city and the navy
were startled by the suicide of Lieutenant
John W. Crawford, confidential secretary
of Admiral Dewey, who was president of
the board of inquiry. Lieutenant Crawford
attended all 'the session of the court and
several times was put In as stenographer.
Jere Wilson, a famous Washington law
yer, who vii one of the attorneys for
Rear Admiral Schley, died very suddenly
when engaged In the case.
Burgeon General Rixey haB been ordered
by the secretary of the navy to make an
Immediate investigation of the cauae of
so many failures of Naval academy students-
in the final physical examination.
Out of a clan of ISO midshipmen forty
three were debarred from graduating be
cause of physical disability, most of them
because of defective eyesight Or a patho
logical condition of the valve of the heart.
This subject came to the attention of the
secretary through nine of the rejected mid
shipmen coming to Washington to apply
for examination for commlHsions in the
coast defense corps, in which wearing
glasses is not forbidden, a it la In the
navy.
The secretary told Dr. Rixey that In his
opinion there must be something radically
wrong either with tha examinations held
before admitting the young men to the
academy or else In the condition which
attended their life there, and whatever
it was it must be discovered and remedied.
On inquiry Mr. Meyer found that last
year, with a graduating clan of 200, eighty
or more midshipmen were' rejected after
the physical test, and this only served to
confirm hi view that there waa something
defective in the system at the academy.
Some members of the faculty at Annapolis
have expressed the opinion privately that
the course of study is. so hard a seriously
to overwork the men, and to constttut
a grave menace to their physical well
being, and the condition of the graduating
classes of the last two year would aeem
to bear out tho contention.
Tha feat of Senator Oore In reeling off
columns of tariff statistics in a recent
speech serve to increase public Intereat
In the blind senator and hla remarkable
Intellectual equipment. The Oktahoman
occupies a seat In the back row on the
democratic aide, save when he make his
speech. Then he moves down to Senator
Daniel' seat In the front row. For a
blind man, Senator Oore does an awful lot
of writing, especially while Aldrlch, Smoot
or some other republican I explaining or
defending the tariff bill. He scribbles
away at a great rate, and everyone wonders
what It ia about. At other time he alls
bolt upright, paying strict attention. He It
the best listener in tbe senate.
Oore, In action, la picturesque. He hat
a magnificent voice, la a master of ear
cum, and Is feared by republicans more
than any other democrat, including Bailey.
Oore ha trained himself in trick to cover
up hi blindness. While speaking he swings
regularly from left to right, turning his
head so aa to address all hi auditor. He
nap out hi word with vigor. To empha
slxe them he jerk his head In a way thai
would ordinarily bring on Intense headache.
Gore's hair Is Iron gray, stiff and plentiful.
With each jerk of his head his hair file

OUTLOOK FOIt AERIAL TRAVEL.
Problem of Alranls) Service Between
Distant CHIe.
New Tork Tribune.
In Germany, France and th United
States there haa of late been some talk -of
establishing an airship service between
cities separated by dlstnnces of J00 or JO)
miles., But It Is fantastic to suppose that
auch a business can be placed on a com
mercial basis, that the world Is to witness
th opening of a new era in transportation.
In the first place, In order to meet the In
terest on the Investment and the operating
expenses, an enormous charge for passage
would have to be made. The exact cost
of one of Zeppelin's dirigible halloons -I
not known, but It probably exceed $100,009,
and may reach $260,000. Yet th largest
of tha airships Is capable of carrying
only from fifteen to twenty persons. In
cluding at least on engineer and a pilot.
A rate of fare blgh enough v to promite a
profit would need to be from ten to fifty
time th price of a railroad ticket, and
after th novelty ot a single trip had worn
off, who would be willing to submit to
such a demand? Even more absurd la It
to think of transporting freight In this
manner.
In th next place, Zeppelin ha already
demonstrated th Impossibility of running
airship on schedule time. On many day
he ha found a postponement necessary on
aoeount of rain or wind. Ha haa repeatedly
been unable to ascend when he wished,
and, when once aloft,, to com down at
will. Passenger grumble If a railway
train I delayed In starting or arriving five
or ten mlnutei. - Would they submit to a
multiplication of this uncertainty and In
convenience by $00 or SOOT Furthermore,
In the nature of things, there ar endless
possibilities ot accident, and of consequent
costly Injuries to the airship.
A for the military airship, th function
of such a vehicle Is not primarily transpor
tation. No government In th world ex
pact any direct financial return from th
money It spend for a balloon or an aero
plane, any more than It doe from It In
vestment In battleship and fortifications.
Beside, the men who will make use of
airship In war mar be expected to face
the risk they will Incur In the same spirit
of devotion to duty that animates a soldier
or sailor w hen going into battle.
