The Confidential Stenographer.
The breach of trust committed by
a stenographer In the office of the sec
retary of the Interior in peddling out
information given him in confidence
has failed to strike a responsive chord,
notwithstanding his explanation that
he had been made to believe himself a
confidential clerk to the government
rather than to his superior officer. It
Is only on the theory that the end
Justifies the means that such treachery
can be condoned, and it is creditable
to the American sense of fair dealing
that even those who have no sympathy
for the victim have displayed no enthu
siasm over the recreant stenographer
w ho will probably have trouble in com
manding the confidence of a new em
ployer to the extent of being entrusted
with any information that he would
not want published to the world.
The cold reception accorded the
coup of the faithless stenographer is,
we submit, a good sign, and still more
reassuring is the extreme rareness of
the occurrence in which a stenographer
betrays confidence. There are proba
bly in this country hundreds of thou
sands of stenographers and personal
secretaries holding tae most intimate
relations with the business of their
employers and entrusted with informa
tion whose betrayal might mean finan
cial ruin or disgrace, and yet it is sel
dom, indeed, that perfidy is uncov
ered in such places. Although the
stenographer as a new member of the
industrial household has not been edu
cated up to the high code of profes
sional morals supposed to surround
therelations of lawyer
physician and patient.
parishoner, a high sense of honor and
fidelity 'is as much in evidence among
the ranks of the stenographers as a
whole as among the representatives of
these professional classes. It goes al
most without saying that Inviolable re
spect of confidence is the prime es
sence of the stenographer's work, and
that there are so few mercenary
traitors and spiesln this militant army
deserves appropriate tribute.
Fortunate Child of the West.
One of the most serious problems
perplexing the large eastern cities Is
how to protect the health 'of the child.
So many conditions there militate
against robust development that even
medical experts and scientists are up
in the air. School authorities in
particular find the task a grave one.
In New York City, with its big tene
ments and squalid quarters the peril
of childhood is grave and calls for
ceaseless vigilance from medical men
who have given deep thought to the
art of combatting conditions besetting
childhood. The simple matter of pure
air, which, of course, children of com
fortable parents nay obtain, is one of
the essentials to good health so diffi
cult to get into the lungs of the young
ster who comes from an unsanitary
home, romps only the narrow, busy
lanes of commerce and attends, per
haps, a school none too well adapted
to the exigencies of health.
Here in the west we sometimes
Imagine ourselves confronted with
problems in the health of the children
at large, but wherever that is the case
it is simply because somebody has
failed to avail himself of natural con
ditions amply adapted to the child's
well-being. We are too prone out
here in this broad dominion of "God's
glorious out-of-doors," to discount our
inherent blessings pure air, plenty of
green grass and shady trees and room
enough for armies of children. The
child of the west is the child of for
tune and If taught to appreciate and
realize on his extraordinary advan
tages In this respect, the lesson would
help make him a better child and a
more useful' citizen in later years.

The Royal Funeral.
The pageantry of King Edward's
funeral not only suggests the costli
ness of burying a British ruler, but
also the thought that it will require
several years more of democratic sov
ereignty to wean England away from
the ceremonies of its ancient courts.
Here is the most popular king Great
Britain has had, the most progressive
and informal, at whose obsequies every
form and custom of royal dynasties
are invoked in the expression of na
tional homage In solemn reminder of
the tenacity of tradition.
Edward VII has been referred to as
"England's first diplomat," but
whether that be true or not, he was a
potent factor In advancing Britain's
cause abroad, in promoting the princi
ple of constitutional government and
establishing world peace, and but for
his wise conservatism in the closing
months of his reign he would undoubt
edly have left the throne on trial, but
instead he had done more than any
other monarch to vindicate the system
of limited monarchial government and
stay the tide of public sentiment drift
ing toward its overthrow. And yet
not even such a life, nor the example
and influence of such a man, could
suffice to set aside the panoply of royal
mien at his own bier and tomb. As
great as had been his predisposition
toward democracy, even greater was
the indulgence of his people in the hol
low forms of the past.
Yet the ultimate lesson is a whole
some one. Edward's funeral, while
most imperialistic in outward aspects,
was at the same time the most popular
demonstration of the kind that was
ever made in historic London, and re
flects the love the people felt for their
king. Following the gilded carriages
of crowned heads from other nations
and representatives of republics, one
ex-president of the United States, came
the people, the proletariat, as it were,
bowed in a grief as genuine as that of
the nobility This, together with the
deeper significance of the entire dem
onstration a reverence for constitu
ted authority is a lesson the world
may study with profit; the lesson that
underneath the ostentation of royal
habit is the seed of true democracy
which the lamented king sowed in the
hearts of his people.
Faith Cure for the War Fever.
The nations of the world may advo
cate the limitation of armaments as
the surest step toward international
peace, but it is plain that they are not
going to cease building strong de
fenses so long as one nation has a
doubt of the other's sincerity. This is
more a matter of faith than It Is of
peace after all. When the powers can
thoroughly depend on each other's In
tentlons to refrain from war and to
carry out an agreement to limit the
munitions of war then and not until
then will they enter into and abide by
such an agreement.
But this faith is an advanced step in
economy of human progress whch
has hardly yet been reached, and until
It is reached the Mohonk conferences
and The Hague tribunals must have
patience with those practical men of
affairs who hold to the belief that
large armies and strong navies are
the surest conservators of world peace
In this day of restless ambition.
Decrying the wisdom of erecting
formidable armament as a means of
amity, we are told that "our nation is
In a better position than any other to
test the power of example in leading
the nations into the paths of peace."
Doubtless true, but regardless of
national prowess, no nation is apt to
go far in such a leadership until it
had absolute knowledge that every
other formidable government would
follow Its course. For our nation to
go it alone would be a showing of faith
The Third Degree.
In his address as president of the
International Association of Police
Chiefs' meeting at Birmingham Major
Richard Sylvester, head of the police
department at Washington, was moved
to enter protest against "the wheel of
sensations" that has been made to re
volve around the so-called "third de
gree," charging upon the police of most
of our cities a systematic practice of
inhuman torture on prisoners in order
to force confession of crimes from in
nocent and guilty alike. "I am con
vinced," he declares, "that no such
barbaric acts maintain generally, or
even moderately, among the intelligent
protectors of lives and property, who,
on the other hand, have repeatedly In
these assemblages discussed the hu
mane handling of prisoners, endeavor
ing to promote kindness on the part
of the police toward children and to
secure the respect and confidence of
the good citizen' for him In whom is
entrusted the care of that which is
While Major Sylvester is careful not
to assert that the so-called "third de
gree" Infamies have never existed, he
evidently wants the public to under
stand that progress is being made in
police organization and police methods
as it Is In all our other public activi
ties and that the inhumane handling
of prisoners is not the rule, but the
exception. Instead of being a regular
Institution resorted to on all possible
occasions by every metropolitan police
force, as people might Infer from the
lurid dramas that heve been woven
around It, the Bo-called "third degree"
atrocities are outlawed In all modern
policp departments, and are more
likely to break out among the amateur
police of small towns than among the
trained crime hunters of the big cities.
The so-called "third degree" lends
itself, however, so readily to sensa
tional treatment that we may expect to
continue to hear about ft right along,
but Major Sylvester's remonstrance
against the unfair imputation of sys
tematic police barbarism should have
The "Back-to-Nature' Fake.
The philosophical interludes which
Mr. RooBevelt ' sandwiches into the
narrative of his African hunting ex
periences have more than once chal
lenged our attention, and warrant al
lusion to the home thrust which he
gives to the "back-to-nature" fake in
the last installment of his serial con
tribution to Scribner's.
The notion that man is at his best
in his natural state, and that the ap
proach of the millennium must come
through the abandonment of civilized
arts and a reversion to a state of na
ture is a common preachment. It is
a remnant of the tradition that the
golden age was enjoyed by primitive
man and the conclusion that another
golden age will be ours only when we
restore the conditions of ancestral life.
Mr. Roosevelt's e'xDerlences in Africa
have evidently confirmed him In tne
belief that the "back-to-nature" cry is
on a par with the nature fake, for he
It is only in nightmares that the average
dweller In civilized countries now undergoes
the hideous horror which was the regular
and frequent portion of his ages-vanished
forefathers, and which Is still an every day
Incident in the lives of most wild creatures.
But the dread Is short-lived, and its horror
vanishes with instantaneous rapidity. In
these wilds the game dreaded the lion and
other flesheatlng beauts rather than man.
Death by violence, death by cold, death by
starvation these are the normal endings of
the stately and beautiful creatures of the
wilderness. The sentimentalists who prat
tle about the peaceful life of nature do not
realize Its utter mercllessness; although all
they would have to do would be to look at
the birds in the winter woods, or even at
the insects on a cold morning or cold even
ing. Life is hard and cruel for all the
lower creatures, and for man also In what
the sentimentalists call a "state of nature. "
The savage of today shows us what the
fancied age of gold of our ancestors waB
really like; it was an age when hunger,
cold, violence, and iron cruelty were the
ordinary accompaniments of life. If Mat
thew Arnold, when he expressed the wish
to know the thoughts of earth's "vigorous,
primitive" tribes of the past, had really de
sired an answer to his question, he would
have done well to visit the homes of the
existing representatives of his "vigorous,
primitive" ancestors, and watch them feast
ing on blood and guts; while aa for the
"pellucid and pure" feelings of his imagi
nary primitive maiden, they were those of
any meek, cowlike creature who accepted
marriage by purchase or of convenience, as
a matter of course.
If the existence of the semi-savages
in darker Africa is anything like what
we would have to endure if we hould
really go back to nature, no one of
sane mind would for a moment think
of making the exchange of his own ac
cord. While gazing at the inspiring
pictures of human beatitude on the
threshold of civilization undisturbed
by the work and worries of these later
artificial Innovations, it is worth while
remembering that the man who is
nearest to nature is In all probability
also furthest from comfort and con
tentment, and absolutely devoid of all
the countless enjoyments which are
today freely In ' possession of the
humblest member of civilized society.
Charm of Buffalo Bill.
A storm of friendly protest greets
Buffalo Bill's announcement In the
east that this will be his last year in
the Wild West business. The most
conservative newspapers of New York
and other large cities editorially ex
press the hope that Colonel Cody may
yet decide to stay with the show as
long as he lives.
This is genuine and not feigned ad
miration for a man who for nearly
thirty years has gone up and down the
land and oyer the sea leading a host
of cowboys and Indians merged in late
years with rough riders from many
nations, exhibiting a congress of un
couth humanity. What is that charm
that has so fascinated the people of
the effete east and makes them reluc
tant to give up this annual festival?
How is it they have not grown weary,
as is the habit of Americans, with a
constantly recurring demonstration
that brings such rich financial returns
to its promoters?
The answer is that Colonel Cody,
while perhaps enriching himself and
business associates, has simply pre
sented to the world a picture of life in
the west as it was In the frontier days
when he, himself, rode the plains as
a cowboy. It is a picture that will
never lose its charm, nor its hold upon
the human heart. There is much in
congruity, of course, between life as it
existed on the "American desert"
thirty and forty and fifty years ago
and the representation as made in the
Buffalo Bill show, but the essence is
there, the spirit is there and there is
enough of the living realities to con
serve the charm.
They east is right; Colonel Cody, we
all may feel, should be privileged to
remain with his grand galaxy of rough
riders as long as he can ride with the
grace and ease that now distinguishes
his dashing figure. But whether he
retires at the end of this season or not,
he has earned the reward of having
always given the public the worth of
its money and he has earned the
greater reward of having kept alive,
as no other agency has done, a spirit
and a tradition well 'worth preserving
in the archives of our national affec
tion. The fact that Colonel Cody Is a

additional reason to take credit In his

WHY COMEST THOU I
Stranger with fiery name.
Flame eyes and jewel'd train.
Out of the sun's domain.
Why comest thou?
Waving a blazing brand,
High in thy fax-flung h-ndj
Thy hair a yellow strand.
Swept from thy brow! J"
Like to come bird of prey,
tBIotllug the sun's ray,
Circling and circling aye
Whence? Whither? Whyt
What be thy name and willt
Com'tit thou for good or ill?
Snaring athwart the hill,
Brooding on high.
Alt thou some fiendish star,
, Leaving calm fields afar,
Seeking fresh worlds to mart
Or, blown astray
Striving to find a spot.
Ancient und half-forgot,
There, in some ordered lot.
Thy head to lay?
Stranger with fiery name.
Flame eyes and Jewel'd train.
Out of the sun' domain
Why comcet thou?
