One will be inclined to doubt the ac
curacy of the statement that college
men participate In or are Indifferent
to lawlessness, yet the Oberlln Alumni
Association of Illinois charge In a
public circular that this very thing la
true. Still, let us hold to the more
consnrvatlvebellef that college . men
aie, as a class, at least not participants
In lawlessness and hff'pa that they 'are
not even Indifferent t l.
But that Is a negative way to look
at the matter. What does the posi
tive show? What should It show? It
doea no credit to the college or col
lege man to acquit him Of the charge
that he does not participate in law
lessness. W'hy should he? The ques
tion that demands consideration here
Is, "Does be exert his powers and in
fluence against lawlessness?" If he
does not, if it be true that he ia In
different to it, then there la something
lacking in his college training, If not
in his college. '
Above all let honest men fearlessly
admit that, the" purpose of a college
education Is to lift men to a higher
plane In life, to exalt them, not to the
fickle fancy that because they aie col
lege nieu thy are, perforce, better
than their fellows, but to a standard
of living that commands character and
stability in private and public activi
ties. If the college doea not hold to
a high level of living and In some way
secure a higher level of moral con
duct In its graduates It does not do Its
Some of the larger colleges and uni
versities are ereUIng brunches and es
tablishing night schools, spreading the
opportunities of their training to the
masses. This Is a good departure,
provided those institutions are first
training the classes along the proper
lines of civic virtue, but if they are
not they had better go alow in pushing
out Into the masses.
Back of a high code of ethics every
college Bhould have a well-balanced
and conservative temperament in Its
faculty. Many are grossly lacking (in
this. We are constantly embarrassed
by 60 me professor making a bid for
cheap notoriety by a sensational utter
ance which he manages to force into
public print. As, for Instance, the
Harvard man who a few days ago
claimed to have discovered that the
fall of ancient Rome and Greece was
due, not to the increase of luxury, old
age and moral and physical decay, as
history records, but to mosquitoes.
Now, this Is no offense in itself, but
how far doea such a public declaration
go toward creating a serious respect
for the authority or Influence of the
college aa an Institution?
Woman'i Work. '
The supreme court of Illinois has
fallen In line with the thought of the
times by holding to be constitutional
a statute Intended 16 limirthe hours
which a woman may wor.k." The law
waa attacked on tha. grounds that It
violated the constitution, both of the
United States and of the state of Illi
nois, by limiting the right of freedom
f contract.- The decision of the
United States eupreme court ' in the
baker's case, brought from New York,
waa cited In support of the contention
that the state haa no right to place a
limit on the number of hours an indi
vidual cftn contract to labor. But the
Illinois court points out that the New
York, case was one dealing with men
exclusively, while the Illinois law
deals with women alone. Under the
police power of the state, . which
broadly means that the state haa the
right at all times to act In protection
of the welfare and morals of Its citi
zens, the court holds that the law is
good, the physical difference between
men and women being made the rea
son for the pronouncement.
This decision Is entirely In line with
modern thought. The presence of
woman in industry haa presented some
new problems for solution, which are
being gradually worked out along
right lines. One of them Is the pro
tection of women against the condi
tions that would have her work be
yond her physical capacity. The ex
tension of the police power of the state
to cover this situation is not novel,
nor does it do any violence to estab
lished precedent. It la not Improbable
that it will be again evoked to further
limit the "freedom of contract" of the
individual when, the' limitation la

Bryce on American Scenery.
Right Hon. Jamea Bryce, British
ambassador to the United States,
writes with great interest and Instruc
tion upon the comparative scenery of
North America and Europe in the April
number of the National Review of
London and brings out a point often
referred to by American writers as to
the Ignorance of people In the United
States of their own country and tta
vast variety ot acenic beauty.
A great traveler and profound
thinker, it la natural that Mr. Bryce
Should look for aerlous lessons even In
the panorama of country that passes
before this traveler's admiring eye. go
he finds. in the' older sections of Eu
rope,' like Italy, which for a thousand
years and more haa been the home of
civilized man, some subtle reminder
that this place has been the stage of
many human dramas, and feels the
touch of living thinga come from it,
whether there be tangible evidence
now. in. the landscape or architecture
to recall such facts or not. In this be
finds the widest difference as between
European and, American scenery In
the United Statea and Canada, with
their wide aecttona of newly-etab-llshed
Jndustrles and their tracklesa
stretc!t-s"af pla'nf Jo the Vest, he finds
1 v, v., .,
the traveler what went on before the
dam'n of civilization.' The buoy work
a day age In which we live has not
had time to discover and mark out
those paths of the past. "In the great
Mississippi plains, for Instance, the
traveler asks himself,. In passing from
Pittsburg to Omaha, whether anything
ever - happened there," observes Mr.
Bryce, though he doea not add. as he
might, that things, indeed, are hap
pening there today in confusingly
1 rapid succession.
As he passes from place to place and
section to section Mr. Bryce shows an
amazing detail of knowledge of North
America, particularly the United
States, and he finds In this country a
greater variety and more wonderful
works of Nature than In any other
portion of the world. California with
Us great Sierra Nevada mountains, Its
perfect canyons and tranquil valleys
and crests of eternal snow; its weird,
fantastic. Mojave desert languishing
lazily between Tehachapl pass and
The Needles, Mount Shasta, Its fertile
fields of grain, orchards of deciduous
and citrus fruit, vineyards, capping all
with Its Yosemlte valley in this em
pire of unknown wealth and variety
of sceiietry, the traveler-author finds
the most wonderful natural beauty on
the continent and of Yosemlte he says:
"It haa a character altogether Its own,
and, In Its own' peculiar way, unsur
passable." But the final thought that Mr. Bryce
suggests la of the utmost interest.
What effect will this variety of scen
ery, apart from climate, have upon the
character and tastes of the people?
Quickly he removes any burden of
obligation which might have suggested
itself to the reader's mind by adding
that It will require centuries for these
liatural diversities to work out their
Cause of High Pricei.

but the important fact la that Mr. Taft

People'! Voice ia Heard.
It Is a far cry from the flay of. Mr.
Vanderbilt's famous defiance of pub
lic opinion to this time when financial
kings are so tolerant aa to admit, as
Andrew Carnegie did, that grant for
tunes may be amassed only by the peo
ple's co-operation and that, therefore,
half of every such aggregation of
wealth should go back to the public
through the channels of the inherit
Mr. Vanderbllt, we believe, finally
denied the authenticity of the disdain
ful remark, but in his public policies
he lived out what his words would not
refute, and to to have these frank con
fessions from men like Mr. Carnegie
is, indeed, encouraging. Not alone
Mr. Carnegie, but President Mellen of
the New York. New Haven St Hartford
railroad and George W. Perkins of J.
p. Morgan & Co. have recently made
public statements which ahow conclu
sively the revolution' In sentiment of
big business toward the public, show
that the people have been recognized
and are being consulted, which Is a
healthy sign In a popular government.
Vast organizations of capital were
necessary and will continue to be nec
essary to handle large Industries and
there la no desire to reduce the size
of either, but there is very great need
to control the power and privileges of
these industries, and that la all the
people have ever clamored for. They
are getting what they sought now.
They are coming to the time when cap
ital la willing to admit that it went
too far in the direction of arbitrary
power for its own or the people's good.
This is creditable on the part of capi
tal, but It is more creditable on the
part of the people that have helped to
point the way to thla realization.
We need not claim that big men of
business were evil-minded and sought
to override public rights and thus es
tablish this unequal balance between
themselves and the people to see that
they were factora in a aystem that
waa moving with perilous speed
toward general ruin. One evil was
that businesa and politics got mixed
up and one fought the other until both
were badly Injured and each became
disrespectful of the other's rights
Now they have come to a, saner point
of view, where business recognizes
that the people's word is law and
where the people acknowledge that
business has snored rights as well aa
The ultimate end is not yet
achieved, but we are coming nearer
to the proper balance of the scales.

' Justice Slow Sut Sure.
"The mills of the goda grind slowly,
but grind," must strike with dramatic
force persons who have followed the
governments prosecution of the rase
of Captain Oberlln Carter. It Is .a
case of pathetic, but stern, Justice, and
ought to come as a solemn lesson In
ther ultimate purpose and penalty of
law. When men sneer at the law's
delay and the undue function of the
"Great American Technique" it is
sometimes difficult to make defense,
but here is a case embodying at once
the inexorable mandate of the law, its
completeness and resourcefulness.
Captain Carter, an army engineer,
conspired with Gaynor and Greene in
an attempt to swindle the government
out of 12,000,000 at the harbor of
Savannah. After years of patient
struggling with every obstacle that
could beset a prosecution the govern
ment found Carter guilty. He was
stripped of his soldier's uniform and
sent to the federal prison at Leaven
worth, where he served a term of
years, but that did not satisfy the
law's demanda. The prosecution de
veloped the fact that Carter had se
questrated MOO, 000 of government
funds with a brother and uncle. It
brought ault to recover the money and
a few days ago the United Statea su
preme court decided that the govern
ment was entitled to the money, set
ting up the principle that It has the
right to compel restitution of funds

Private Vocational Training.
The departure of certain railroads
In establishing schools In their shops
to train their own apprentices may
possess aome excellent features, but it
has at least two apparent defects. One
ia that the system la based upon the
false theory that the youth la Invaria
bly deficient in akill and Intelligence;
the other that the whole tendency and
effect of the system la to. narrow, in
stead of broaden the individual.
Vocational training ia a good thing,
but .should be done by the public and
hot private corporations with selfish
ends to serve thereby. Narrowing the
powers of a young man down to the
fine point of a-single line of work is
but one way of permanently control
ling his energies and output and limit
ing his ambition. Thla is precisely
the principle on which piecework is
based, and piecework is an attribute
of modern Industrialism against which
the man whose capital ia his labor be
lieves in fortifying himself. Insofar as
these railroad schools Inculcate techni
cal knowledge they serve a aplendid
purpose, but when they seek to reduce
all labor to the level of specializing
they fall to serve the best ends.
It la a well-known fact that the me
chanic in a railroad shop or elsewhere
who possesses knowledge and skill in
every line of his trade la a more Inde
pendent man, as well aa a more thor
ough mechanic, than the one who
knowa how to do but a single line of
the work. His labor la more difficult
to control, that Js true, but why should
his employer aek to limit the develop
ment of his resources any more than
be should seek to prescribe the kind
of work he la to do? True, labor con
troversies may be minimized and more
easily won by the employer where all
the tradesmen are specialists, but Is
that the larger purpose in the economy
of vocational education?
Roosevelt and Kouuth.
Nowhere In Europe has Theodore
Roosevelt been received with such tu
multuous enthusiasm as that accorded
him at Budapest, the capital of Hun
gary. Despite a drenching rain, thou
sands of people were at the depot when
his train arrived and, according to
press dispatches, all but mobbed him
in their eagerness to do him honor.
Tbey hailed him with cries of "Long
live Roosevelt," "Long live Louis Kos
suth," and made his entire stiy an
ovation of ceaseless enthusiasm.
There is more than mere news in
terest in this; there is a deep, solemn
vein of human Interest that cannot be
lost alght of by the atudent of history
or by the lover of liberty who appre
clatea the crucible of sacrifice and Buf
fering through which that precious
heritage to mankind has been
wrought. Louis Kossuth represents
the principle of civil and political free
dom to the people of Hungary. He
laid his own liberty on the altar of
country that his people might be free
and in the prosecution of hia relent
less crusade croted the waters to the
United States, before whose citizens he

In tneir exclamations of "Long live
Louis Kossuth" the people of Hungary

republic and mankind.
One Incident In the public career of
Kossuth serves to emphasize the inter

other advocates of reform had drawn

WHEN WE WERE KIDS.
Detroit Free Press.
When we wuz kids together, un' e didn't
have a care.
In the lazy days ,uf summer, when our feet
wuz alius hare,
When a hat warn't necessary an' a neck
tie In th' way .
An' there warn't s blessed thing t' di
but scamper off an' play,
Then th' sun meant somelliln' to us., an'
the blue skies overhead
Kinder stooed down in th' meadow where
we children wuz an' said:
"Trout are bltln' In th' mill stream, hurry
up an' git yer pole.
Now's th' time you should be hikln' t' your
fav'rlt flBhln' hole."
When we wuz kids together, an' there
warn't a thing t' fret
Save comln' home f mother, with our hair
Then th' sunbeams an' the song birds
used t' come t' us an' say:
"Thoy air swlmmln' In' th' river, better
get there right away;
As we passed 'em we could hear 'eir.
laugbln', splashln' down below."
Then we hurried to the river, Jus' as fast
as we could go,
For there warn't -u. thing t' keep us, like
there Is now we air men.
And th' sunbeams nn' the smR birds an'
the skies meant somethin' then.
Now th' same sunbeams come oallin', an'
the same song birds mm near. J1
And tho same blue skies bend o'er wyunfl
their messages hear;
Kvery dancing sunlieam tells me thi't out
yonder In the stream
That tho pickerel are biting, but I only sit
Fur I've Journeyed past my boyhood, l m
a slave forevermore.
And I may not heed their whisper, as 1
used to do of yore;
There are bill to meet, and dutle that
I must not, dare not shirk.
Mr. Sunbeam, quit your coaxin , It s no
use, I've got t' work.
