Postal Sa vinyi Bogies.
Although the postal Ravings bank is
an assured fact, as a result of the leg
islation enacted by rongresH urged on
by the president, the agencies that
w-re most active in endeavoring to
head off the pontal savings bank bill
are continuing to picture the dreadful
possibilities it may ha a in store. Kroni
reading one of the financial journals,
published near Wall street, its chief
apprehension seems to be that the pos
tal savings bank may prove a success.
In one breath we are assured that the
offer by the government of 2 per cent
Interest will not be sufficient to tempt
people to become depositors, and cer
tainly not to induce them to transfer
any funds from present depositories
that pay higher rates, and in the next
breath we are warned . what havoc
may be wrought by piling up a large
volume of money withdrawn from cir
culation, and perhaps invested in
United States bonds.
It is possible, under the law, we are
told, to convert 30 per cent of the sav
ings bank funds Into government
securities, and after setting aside a 5
per cent reserve to make the 65 per
cent deposited in local banks subject
to withdrawal at the discretion of the
president, and so long as this is possi
ble the Wall street bankers cannot en
joy undisturbed sleep. What different
disposal of the funds would be made
If the savings bank deposits were put
in . the existing private banks in the
first instance Is not disclosed. The
actual cash reserve would, perhaps, be
a little larger, but there would be ab
solutely nothing to prevent the banker
frdin Investing' the remainder "in
United States bonds, although It would
more likely be loaned on less desirable
eecurity at higher Interest. It jo cer
tain, at any rate, that the small sav
ings accounts given over to the . gov
ernment wtll not be. so easily trans
ferred to Wall street as call loans to
ohare the winnings of stock exchange
Again, we are told, that should the
volume ot deposit mount up to great
magnitude, as some of the advocates
of the scheme think will be the case,
other embarrassing possibilities might
ensue. The S per cent cash reserve
would produce' further accumulations
in the treasury vaults which ought to
be In circulation. The fact Is over
looked, .however, that not only the 6
per cent reserve, but a large per cent
of the total, would otherwise be In
hiding or hoarded, and not In circula
tion at all.
Another fear Is that a period of dis
tress might lead to a sudden and gen
eral withdrawal of deposits in the pos
tal banks, in which , event the 5 per
cent cash reserve would be plainly inadequate.-
It lo oMfe gtiess: though.
that a period of distress that would
piiii deposits away froni.tne govern
ment would also pull them away from
private banks,-, .and . the. government
iWpiild. at the worst, be no- more em
barrassed (than . the toep. bankers.
There 10 this consolation vouchsafed
no, also, quoting from the same finan
cial authority, that !'these're mere
possibilities, and In, our. estimation it
la not probable that they will occur."
But a further and much more likely
possibility is that with the advent ot
troublous times some people might lose
confidence in the existing savings de
positories and transfer their moneyo
to the safe-keeping of the government.
whereby money would be flowing, to
government vaults at a time" when par
tlcularly needed In. the channels of
trade. Fortunately, however. thia
possibility may. also be met by the gov
ernment in turn, relieving the banko
by rfBdepoelting or reinvesting In gov
ernment bonds, . thus nuttlnr th
money back Into circulation .through
the very banks from which It was
withdrawn.'. . " "
respite an tnese postal savings
bogles which the bankers persist In
conjuring up, the much more probable
expectation' Is that postal savings will
not only, encourage thrift and bring
hoarded money' out ot biding places,
but will serve to steady the monetary
situation and operate aa a safety valve
for the commercial banks. and private
savings institutions.
' Curing a Grouch.
In addressing a woman'a club con
vention Dr. Madison C. Peters recently
said that social settlement work was
a sure cure for a groucb because It
broadens a person's vision ot life and
makes him happy to know that be la
doing something for othefro and not
centering all his efforts on self.
No doubt the doctor is correct, but
this broadening Influence Is not con
fined to the workers In oocial settle
ment. It cornea from any work that
io jorth while, for any work that io
worth while comprehends the other
man, never stopping at self. People
do not have to engage In public chari
table or reform movements to get thia
broadened vision of life, to let In thia
sunshine of happiness and contentment
that dispels gloom and care. They
may, Indeed, get It by purauing the
r.raple Hues ot their own private daily
occupation, the while mindful of the
other fellow; willing and ready always
to lend a helping hand when it la
needed, or when It may do some real
good. Often the man or woman whose
voice la never beard in public places,
whose name never appears in print as
a popular champion, or reformer, but
who confines bis or her labors to the
ordinary fields of activity, fills just as
wide a sphere of actual usefulness as
the one' who Is known far and wide
for his public utterances.
"Charity beglnO at home," after all;
an old. but true adage, and grouches
are as likely tq spring up at home aa
at any other place. There la oppor
tnnltyfor fhe uroposed remedy around
the firoslde Just as much, If not more,
than on the public rostrum or in the
club. The nian'or woman who lights
the faces of bontfc fnlfcs lth prauticr.l
deeds of love and charity Ignites a
more enduring flame than the one who !
saves the spark for strange hearts. )
And if the borne duty were given first beginning, to have their effect In vari
and sufficient consideration there jous phases of life and coming to be

Evanescent Fame.
A new edition of that indispensable
volume which goea by the- title,
"Who's Who in America?" gives us
oome entertaining, If not instructive,
statistics of the Instability of fame.
This compendium of biographical In
formation 'about contemporary people
more or less distinguished is made up
on a definite plan so as to embrace
those who are' most conspicuous In
every worthy Walk of lite, and also
the following, "without regard to
notability or prominence in any other
AH members of congress.
All governors of states, .territories and
island possessions of the' United states
now in office.
All United States judges.
All Judges of state and territorial
oourts of . highest appellate jurisdiction.
Members of the cabinet.
Federal department heads.
All officers of the army above the rank
of colonel, and of the navy above the
rank of captain.
All American ambassadors and minis
ters plenipotentiary.
Heads of all the larger universtles and
colleges. . .
Members, of the National Academy of
Sciences and ot the National Academy
of Design.
Heads of the leading national societies
devoted to educational and scientific
Bishops and' chief ecclesiastics of all
the larger religious denominations in the
United States.
. And others Who are In like manner
chosen because of their offlcal relations
and affiliations.
The result of , this fine-tooth combing
for "notables" has produced a volume
containing 17,646 biographies, being
an Increase of 1,161 since the preced
ing publication two years ago. It is
also stated that 1,680 names are omit

of which 974 are known to have died,
leaving 706 dropped because regarded

Work for the Educator.
The recent convention of the -Na
tional Educational association was
notable for a prevailing spirit of criti
cism by educators of the system ot
popular education in this country. One
Kansas City instructor went eo far In
bis condemnation aa to assert that
"our present system of teaching has
produced a luxuriant crop of spineless
and animated nobodies."
. That is very strong language and It
Io a severe arraignment of modern
methods ot teaching, possibly too rad
ical, but the fact that it is made by a
man whose business io to teach must
entitle It to consideration. What
must strike 'everybody Is that since
these men and women bave discovered
the defects in the system it is their
duty now to find the remedy and apply
it wlthont delay. No matter what the
problem la, they ohould be equal to it,
and If they are they are falling in their
duty; let them get together, decide
upon just what la wrong and what is
right and try to readjust the system
upon correct lines.
Of course, it will appear by a care
ful survey that, while the teacher and
school authority can do much to cor
rect existing evils, there Is much more
he cannot do, but that must be done
by higher authorities, by the state, or
by people themselves. In this case
It becomes the duty of the professional
school man to direct the work of Im
provement Fundamentally our pub
lic school system la sound, and what
ever defecto exist must be superficial
and not organic, but they ' ohould
nevertheless be corrected, for the pub
lic schools are among the pillars of our
national life.
The Heat East and Wert.
Summer'o . oun lo no respecter of
peroono; it shines on the Just and un
Just alike, on the west as well as the
east, and not every city or state in the
Transmlsslsslppl country would make
an Ideal summer resort. But there Is
a difference between the conditions
and effects of the heat in the east and
the west, as appearo from statistic.
On one day during) the excessively
hot spell which seemed to be general
over tbe country, thirty-eight deatha
from heat were recorded and they
were all in citiea from Chicago east;
not. one west. Chicago Itself had
twenty-one deaths, Philadelphia six.
New York four, Pittsburg four, and oo
on. At the same time the tempera'
turea In aome of these cities were not
as high ao were tomperatureo lo west
em cities, but buildings were higher
and more numerous and the humidity
greater. s
People of the west, whether in cities
like Omaha. Minneapolis, St. Paul and
Oea Moines and Denver, or lu the
country, are likely to grow Indifferent
to their natural advantages Ir
n the
conservation of health and life
they "sometimes 'pauso i lake slock
and by comparlpou note their lot a
against that of people in Ih.u larger
eastern cities. These advantagta of
purer air and wider open space W
u mm or limn linwavnr much It iiiav
fascinate in the winter months, and
even the provincial Gotham Is begin
nlng to realise this.
Speedy Justice.
Ike slate of Georgia is encumbered
with a system of court procedure
which lawyers and newspapers declare
to be destructive of speedy justice and
pernicious In its influence upon the
state, and a strong protest has arisen
against it. What Georgia complains
of other states are enduring no more
patiently and the demand is growing
for the elimination of red tape or any
condition that obstructs "a fair,
speedy and impartial trial."
The situation in Georgia has become
so bad that the legislature has taken
It up, and yet we doubt if it Is one
whit worse there than in many other
states. Judges may wince as they
please and resent criticism of their
conduct of court trials, but it is often
as an attorney writing to the Atlanta
Constitution Bays, "One of the pressing
needs of relief Is a reformation of the
methods of court practice and proced
ure." Perhaps the blame for delayed
trials, civil and criminal, does not rest
entirely upon the court; much of It,
ot course, Is due to the lawyers on
either side of a case, out a great deal
will have to be laid at the Judge's
door, for if be has the power under
the law, to permit Continuous delays,
he also has the power ,to enforce "a
fair, speedy and Impartial trial," which
the organic law promises to every
man.' s " ,
. There ia no doubt that the uncer
tainty of punishment and the appar
ently unnecessary delay In court pro
cedure invites men to commit unlaw
ful deeds and never deters them from!
it. Criminals frequently escape pun
ishment altogether or are long Im
mune from the' law's penalties because
the wheels of justice move too slowly.
In civil cases involving business in
terests the delays are equally harmful.
The Georgia lawyer quoted puts It that
the administration of law beara about
the same relation to the progressive
spirit of business as does the medieval
ox-cart to an electric motor." Tbe
comparison may be overdrawn from
general application, but all over the
cduntry this same gelay justice has
come to be more And more an 'object
of complaint snd i. demand that the
remedy ben applied; . .
While we boast of our judiciary as
one; of the "bulwark pf our civil lib
erty," still since Jawa and their admin
istration depend, upon Tinman nature
and are bound to be Imperfect, It is
useless to deny that certain Judicial
reforms could - and should " be made.
Respect for law is not fostered by
weak and slow execution.
o Aeroplanes and Battleships.
The aeroplane la already oerlouoly
considered aa an antidote for the
Dreadnaught in time of war, if we are
to continue wars as a means of settling
international disputes. If,' not, then,
of course, the aircraft and water-borne
vessel will bave to remain on the equal
footing of defensive, instead of offen
sive, Implements of war.
From teats made by Glenn H. Cor-
ties it haa been determined that an
aeroplane can fire projectiles accu
rately from great heights and eould
wreck a warship at a distance that
would make it practically immune
from danger eo far aa the water craft
was concerned. For Instance, it io
claimed that a thousand obot eould
pierce the flimsy sails of the aeroplane
without doing the least damage, and
that while the crew would always bo
more or less subject to peril, the rising
and falling, flitting and flying course
of the aeroplane would make it ex
tremely bard to hit from any distance
But we are discussing battleships
these days, ao we are discussing most
everything else, from a monetary
standpoint One Dreadnaught is to
cost $18,000,000. A good aeroplane
would cost $,000 or 13,000, and
while it takes 1,000 warriors to man
an ocean vessel. It requires only two
or three for the ordinary aeroplane.
There Is something of a financial gain
to start with. Then another compar
ison in favor of the aircraft is in speed.
The aeroplane can attain a rate of
travel which the warship could not.
Still. It will be oome tim before
these new implements of war will be
Introduced, but modern .inventions
move owlftly, and what progress we
bave wrought In air travel baa been
sudden. With oo many addressing
themselves to the subject it is not Im
possible that some nation may soon
decide upon the Innovation. An Aus
trian admiral and naval conatructor Is
quoted as aaylng that "piano for the
future Dreadnaught must provide
protection against this new danger"
(the aeroplane). Major Parse val, the
German expert, dlacusaea the subject
scientifically and Archduke Leopold
Salvator believes that "international
law will bave to provide against this
kind of warfare." In the United
Statea Mr. Curtlss baa been employed
to make demonstration.
r So fur aa International law providing
against this menace to concerned. If it
can do that successfully, then It can
accomplish tbe better alternative of
abolishing war entirely, tbe end to
which the powers are, of course, !oek

Due of the objections lodged against
the new campniKti publicity law
enacted by congress is that it applies
only to national campaign committees
and cimimltteea doing work in more

within state lines. If that is a defect
it dons not "bold against Nebraska, and
for that matter against many other

business lies' in the observance of the

most flagrant of these violations are

C, and selected for that purpose a passage
In lslah which runs: "How beautiful upon
the mountains are the feet of Him that
brlngeth good tidings," to which telegraphic
reference was made by chapter and verse.
The Methodist convention had the day be

when,' through an error in transmission,
the verse which came to the Methodists
over the wire from the onloklng Presby
terian waa found to read: "As lambs led
to the slaughter,".
No matter what other creature falls by

New York's heroic efforts for "a safe

At present it seems probable that Wil
liam Jennings Bryan may be needed by
tha republicans two years hence to do
feat the democratic national ticket. It Is
true that Mr. Bryan is doing what ha can
to prevent such a situation from develop
ing, but even his ingenious avaults on demo
crats may prove unavailing, lie may have
to take tha field again himself. .
That Mr. Bryan Is ready to naorlflce
himself once more his record and his atti
tude prove conclusively. He has thought
of a dosen really paramount issues, in
cluding government ownership ot cargo and
passenger xhlpa in tbe commercial marine
and national prohibition. These and gov

any democrat no. matter how dissatlnfled
the publio might be with the republican

republican party need fear the result of
no folly, ' bad . management or corruption
within Its organisation. He can defeat the
democrats at any time and is always ready
to do It
