Are the Filipino Barbarian! ?
In one of his circular letter dedi
cating his career in oongrcs to pro
curing rational aid to states for
Rood roads, the newly elected mem
ber from the Third Nebraska
district sought to drive home bis ar
gument with this declaration:
We have spent In Panama, Ifirlo RWx
and the Philippine Jalanda tans of millions
of dollar In building atone road for bare
fontel barbarian. I think It would be
Infinitely aaner to cut out thoae uaelcaa
expencllturtM, and turn out attention to
our country f!rt for the benefit of tha
people who pay taxea.
Waving aside, for the moment, the
exngRoratlon of the amount In ten
of millions of dollar, and nlfo the
Imputation that the Forto Rlcana
and the Filipinos pay no taxes, the
referenco to them a "barefooted
barbarians'' coming from a demo
cratic candidate, for whom Mr.
Bryan ha gone good, is at least In
teresting. The democratic position
from the very moment that the
Philippine were wrested from Spain
has been that we should at once
turn back the Islands to their Inhabi
tants, leaving them to hlft for
themselves In matter of government,
subject -only to our protection
agntnst foreign invasion. This po
sition has been buttressed on the
persistent assertion that the Fillplnoa
are net barbarians, but are amply
able to carry on sucrensfuily their
own experiment In self-government,
and that we are doing them an In
justice in holding them practically a
ward of the nation with only limited
participation in their local affair.
Of course, we do not regard tha
Filipino, any more than the Porto
Rlcans, as "barefooted barbarian,"
but neither do we believe they are
already prepared to discharge the
duties or citizenship In the same
full measure as devolves upon our
people here. There are lots of bsre
footed race who are not barbarians,
and bare feet do not necessarily de
stroy the value of good road for
Canada' Foolish Blander.
Until the report was confirmed
many Americans refused to believe
that the city authorities of Toronto
had excluded the American flag
from all moving picture theaters
and given notice there and to Amer
ican manufacturer that the Star
and Stripe must not be displayed la
Toronto, which hitherto has been re
garded aa the most American of all
Canadian cities. Montreal, Winni
peg and other Dominion towns, it Is
said, will follow suit.
This reminds one at once of a
peeved child "cutting off his nose to
spite his face."' The United States
with Its 85.000,000 people certainly
has no time to worry over what a
country of 7,000.000 does In thia re
gard. So beyqnd causing a good
deal of amusement and disappoint
ment among those who bad formed
higher estimation of Canada, thts
childish blunder can have little effect
J. A. MacDonald, the progrexalve
editor of tbe Toronto Globe, recently
said that if the outcome of the reci
procity contest taught Canada the
wisdom of a closer alliance with Its
great Anglo-Saxon neighbor across
the line, without regard to annexa
tion. It would, after all, bare done
well. Evidently it ha failed, then,
for it 1 not now apparent that Can
ada ha learned any such lesson.
What has caused this display of
spleen toward our colorat The 'St.
Louis Globe-Democrat says In the
first place Canada has been very
much chagrined at it population
figures, showing only 7.000.000,
when it bad boasted that It would
ahow 9,000,000. In tbe next place,
so many of our Americana who wereJ
"takeu In" on the Dominion's cheap
land found out their mistake and
came back to the states. Then, no
doubt, the Imperialistic prejudice
has been fannod by the transparent
bogey of annexation, which Champ
Clark' and other practical Jokers
have made so much of. The whole
situation shows Canada oft to very
poor advantage. It remains to be
seen how long it can afford to shut
the Stars and Stripes out. There
are so many other places where the
Stars and Stripes may go that they
really will not mis Canada.
A Mile a Minute in the Air.
Aviator Rodger ha made good
on bla undertaking to fly from the
Atlantic to the Pacific and has es

tual traveling time, practically a
mile a minute. Despite his many
mishaps and Interruptions, his Is the

Rodgers, whose mother and sister

that it will not, for be has led them
just a little further Into the mys
teries of serial navigation than any
other has done. What more he will
be able to do toward penetrating fur
ther thia great unexplored field of
nature remains to be seen.
In view of the time It took for
Rodgers to fly from New York to
California tbe exploit does not fully
prove tbe feasibility of sir travel for
practical purposes, but on the other
band it has demonstrated that such
transit is possible. Rodgers has trav

conditions; be has dipped down Into

Booker T. Washington write an
Interesting article In the Inde
pendent upon the race problem in
Arizona as he found It upon per
sonal Investigation. About 30 per
cent of the population, be thinks, 1
represented by the black, red and
yellow man the negro, Indian and
Chinaman, with some Jspanese, to
say nothing of 13 per cent of Mex
icans. He finds these people for the
most part In business for them
selves, or well employed by others,
except the Indian, who thus far, Is
little more than a spectator, and liv
ing peaceably with all. He makes
hla observations from conditions In
Phoenix, which, perhaps, Is typical.
Dr. Washington observes:
I believe It will be found In this
tat that there ax a greater variety of
races and people who are atruKgllns up
out of a primitive and backward condi
tion than in other part of tha United
Btates. In spite of this fact there la. so
far aa t can learn, no place In the south,
went, except perhapa New Mexico, where
there Is so Httle friction between the
racea and ao much confidence, hope and
ood will among all the classes, as Is
true In Arlsona and Phoenix.
He allows that this may be due to
the fact that each race is there only
in small numbers and yet when one
third of any population is colored
there are those who will consider It a
"problem." But Dr. Washlngton'a
own conclusion Is that this peaceful
relationship is due to tbe fact that
each race has been given an oppor
tunity equal to that accorded tbe
others, white included, and that each
race has been allowed to find ita
own position In the community and
work out It own salvation.
Doubtless this I the true concep
tion. If so, Dr. Washington is cor
rect in assuming that "the black
man, yellow roan and red man have
in Arlsona an opportunity, which,
If they use It properly, will keep that
state a free country, In the broad
est sense of the word. "A large
kernel of truth is contained In a
passing sentence that Arlxona has no
past to live down, no tradition. It

with race prejudice and the race
problem largely solves Itself. Racial
hatreds and prejudices lend force
and weight to race problems. Of
course, in statea and cities with pre

ferent,' but so long as each race is
glveu a square deal, free from preju

Officer Withholds Information.
Second Lieutenant O. W. Edgerly, Sec
ond Infantry, was recently called on by at
torneys for an enlisted man, who had
filed a claim against the government, to
furnish whatever Information he might
Posetsa which would enable them to es
tablish the claim. Ha refused to furnish
any evldenco whatever and sought In
structions on the subject from the War
department. It haa alwaya been held
that It would be prejudicial to the In
terests of the public for officers to give
out Information which might be used
against tho government, and, therefore,
that It waa the duty of the department
vrr mandcr to determine whether Infor
mation desired should be disclosed. The
attorneys were informed that they ahould
make requests for the information
through the War department. In this
particular eaa the enlisted man sought
to establish a claim for the value of
property alleged to have been destroyed
ln a fire at Fort Asslnlbolne. A board
of officers was convened, which found
that tha claim was fraudulent and
recommended the man' punishment, but
the commanding officer disapproved
Army Desertion Reward.
' The suggestion has been made to the
War department that the payments of the
reward for tha apprehension of deserter
from tha army be delayed "until thare
can b conclusive proof of desertion."
The military authorities do not approve
of this proposition, which would mean
the postponement of the payment of the
reward until an alleged deserter was tried
by court-martial and the proceedings re
viewed, or until the man ahall have been
leturned to duty without trial. It Is
realized that such a delay would defeat
the purpose for which the reward Is of
fered, a purposo which, it Is believed. Is
aided by the knowledge on the part of
the civil authorities that the return of
a deserter to military custody insures a
prompt and practically certain payment.
Otherwise Interest In .the apprehension
of deserters from th army would neces
sarily diminish. The probability of ap
prehension under tha present system of
advertising deserters has had a muterlal
Influence In reducing the number of de
sertions. Anything which Interferes with
that system would be llttla short of dla

which came from ona of the division
The act of March 3. 1911. contained
provision providing for the filling of
vacancies in th grade of second lieu
tenant of the army, occurring In any
ireal year. It being stipulated that the
ippolntment should be made in the fol-
lowing order. First, cadets graduated
from the military academy during that
fiscal year; second, enlisted men of the
rmy duly qualified In the renular armv:
third, candidates from civil life between
and 27 yeara of age. It la held hv the
War department that this provlaton doea
not apply to tha position of second lieu
tenant in the Philippine scouts, the Porto
hico regiment of infantry, or the corns
of engineers, because It Is well established
mat repeals by Implication ara not favored
and that tha later statute, areneral In Its
scope, will not be construed to Imply re
peal of an earlier special statute, unless
there be a clear Intention to do so. It Is
held, further, that the new law would
operate to prevent the appointment of a
second lieutenant In th Philippine scouts
to be a second lieutenant In cavalry, field
artillery, coast artillery, or Infantry if
the second lieutenant of the Philippine
scouts is more than 27 years of a-e. It
Is also held that the clause "the presi
dent Is authorized to make rules and
regulations to carry this provision Into
effect" authorises the president not only
to construe the act. but to maka rul.
supplementary v thereto, provided such
ruiee snail not be contrary to the con

Yellowstone National Park.
A serious condition nrevalla in th Vat.
