Mr. Carneyie'i Latest Gift.
Mr. Carnegie's latest benefaction
of 1:5.000,000, announced In the in
auguration of the Carnegie Corpora
tion of New York, brings up his total
bequests to $100,000,000. What
small significance such a sum really
has to the average mind, aftr all!
Yet, the only way this sort of philan
thropy can be measured Is by the in
adequate money standard. The
moral, the Intellectual, the really
practical results lie far out of the
reach of any measure we may con
In making this gift the donor ex
plains that it la "to promote the ad'
vancemcnt and diffusion of knowl
edge and understanding among the
people of the United 8tatea." Within
mis oroaa scope are ail the co
operating forces In -the combat
against Ignorance and evil, and this
combat is aa old aa time Itself. A
tremendous stimulus can be given
those forces through this latent rein
forcement. The administration of
this bequest, of course, la conditioned,
but with no restriction in promoting
the advancement and diffusion of
knowledge and undertsandlng. The
basic problem of this country today
is the same that has vexed civiliza
tion from its dawn the problem of
overcoming ignorance with intelli
gence. It Is the problem of the
press, the pulpit, tho school, of art,
of science, of government Itself.
The Democracy of the Voting- Booth,
Visit the voting booth on election
day If you would see militant democ
racy. There in that long line lead
ing from perhaps outside the door to
the voting compartment 1 the com
posite American, after all, the most
emphatic, impressive exhibit of the
republic. Rich and poor, high and
low, employer and employe, black
and white, Jew and Gentile, Catholic
and Protestant, native and foreign
born, every type of American citizen
ship, la there represented. The pres
ident of the great republic may rub
elbows with his footman, the million
nlre may meet the impecunious town'
loafer. Race nor color, nor creed
nor faith knows distinction there.
There all men who have sworn alle
giance to one flag and claim protec
tion under It stand for once on a com
mon level, with equal rights and priv
ileges. The line may be long, the de
lay tedious, but they all wait alike
and they all vote alike, so far as the
law's requirements and privileges go,
each casting his ballot according to
his own will and pleasure. And every
man who goes into that secret cham
ber oh election day and fails to vote
as ha wills has no one but himself to
blame tor It
Who that has stood and watched
one of these long lines ot cosmopol
itan Americanism can believe the peo
ple of this country have not the right
of ruling themselves? "Let the peo
ple rule," shouts someone. The people
do rule and have been ruling, und it
they, fall to get,, what they . want at
those election booths the blame can
Dot be shifted, You say they did not
hava the right men up for election,
Imperfections, of course, exist in our
election machinery the same as in
every other part ot our governmental
mechanism, but so long as that lint
ot composite Americanism keeps
passing into the election booth It will
not quite do to say that the democ
racy It this country Is not real or that
self-government Is a failure. ,
Progresa on the Iithmui.
Kvery American should Inform
himself as fully aa possible aa to the
work his government is doing on the
Isthmus ot Panama. The construc
tion of the canal la a world work of
transcendent Importance and Its
progress should be the subject of
deepest .concern to our . people.'
Therefore, all ahould read the pub
lished extracts from tho annual re
port of the Isthmian Canal commis
sion filed at VUasblngton. They aet
forth what has been done toward
solving the great mechanical prob
lem Incident to the work, beside
showing just what progress has been
made In the building of the canal.
II ut after all, the mechanical
problems are not the final tasks
confronting the government. There
is the problem of civil government
for the canal tone, which must be
established without delay. Working
out the details or this Is going to In
volve all the wisdom and resourceful-
news of a grat nation. Without the
right sort ot government, the canal,
however successful the mechanical
construction might be, could never
become what It was destined for.
It Is the judgment of wise students
of the situation that congress this
winter should empower the prfsident,
to proceed with the organliatlon of a
canal loue government. Enacting a
law to that effect at the coming ses
sion of congress would enable the
president to retain the choice men for
permanent employment now on the
canal payrolls. Or course, in making
selections, the president would be
guided by the advice or the chair
man or the canal commission, Col
onel (loethals and others at the head
or affairs now. One thing or para
mount Importance is to get the right
miin for operating head of the canal,
hlmory It. Johnson, In a very able
discussion ot Panama canal legisla
tion in the North American Review,
urges that this man be an engine!4
officgr Instead of a civilian, "ho
training has developed both his initi
ative faculty and bis sense of dis
cipline." , . ,
The proper form of government
must be such as to provide the slm
plftt and most economical adminis
tration. In tlmf-a of war, ahould any
transpire, msrtlal law would, nat
urally, be Invoked. This would place
command of the tone In the hands
of the superintendent of fortlflca
Uons for the time being. The first
step toward all this should be taken
this winter by congress.
Powert of Party Committeet.
V Much misunderstanding as to the
powers of party committees prevails
even among . those who ought to
know better. The editor of a nearby
republican weekly, who bolted one of
the party ' nominees In the recent
election, Justified his course by ex
pressing his conviction that the can
didate in question was unfit, "no
matter If the members of the state
committee are willing to stultify
themselves and disgrace the party by
supporting him."
This editor, who bad himself
served on the state committee only
last year, ought to know that , the
laws providing for direct primary
nomination hare taken from the
party committees whatever power, if
any, they ever had over the nom
inees, and that the certificate of nom
ination Issued by the canvassing
board is final when uncontested.
Tho committee has no authority In
law to remove any candidate, or to
name a new candidate, except toi fill
a vacancy in fact. It Is presumed to
get its commission from the same
source as the party nominee. Unless
a nominee should himself volun
tarily withdraw, the committee has
but one duty to perform, and that is
to conduct the campaign for all the
ticket to the extent that ita re
sources permit. Were this not true
a despotic party committee might
overturn the overwhelmingly ex
pressed will of the rank and file and
substitute someone who could by no
means procure a nomination In the
regular way.'
What relates to the state or local
committee is equally true ot the na
tional party committee. After a na
tional convention has named the
standard-bearers the committee is
powerless to change the tfeket with
out the consent of the nominees. A
nomination for president requires
the votes of a majority of the con
vention delegates In the democrats
convention of a two-thirds majority
while the committees are made up
of but one representative from each
state) , Were, the committee to usurp
power to make nu,ltltutlons on the
ticket,, representative,: ot a small
minority of the whole- party might
easily control.-
. The. fact," then,' is that there is but
one appeal from a questionable nom
ination, when the nominee persists
In running, and that la to the people
who elect, and' who, aa a court of last
resort, may decide In favor of nlB
competitor. If the people, with full
and free choice, do not so decide, the
Verdict must be either that the. can
didate la not objectionable or that
the voters are not aroused to the
seriousness of the'objectlons.

'"Everyone preaches thrift, but all
too few practice It sufficiently. Tbrirt
is absolutely necossary to get ahead
in the world. Thrift looks to the
future aa well aa' to the present; It

and more particularly avoidance or

, A Divorce Proctor.
For very fourth marriage in Kan
sas City last year another marriage
ended in divorce. .This shocking
condition is attributed, chiefly, to de
fective divorce machinery. Eighty
per cent of the divorces were granted
without contest. One-third of this
80 per cent Were ot couples from
other states, lured to Kansas City by
the law'a facility. The law requires
outsiders to reside In the state one
year, but it seems to have been en
tirely set aside and divorcee granted
with utttr abandon.
Aroused to the enormity of such
a baleful condition, Kansas City has
decided to Install a divorce proctor,
whone duty It shall be to summon
witnesses and hear testimony before
a divorce Is granted. Thla should
have a restraining Influence, but the
divorce evil will not be solved In
Kansue City or elsewhere by taking
hold or it at the wrong end. The
divorce Is the effect, while tho evlj
lies iu the cause, and the cause Is to
be found, very often. In the reckless
marriage. 1 ;

of safeguarding ' marriage, It is

linquent children who come before
him for correction have divorced
parents. Here Is something to think
about for those who waive the whole
subject aside with. the flippant re
mark that marriage is only a lottery.
One of the most direct evils ot di
vorce lies in the fact that the child
Is the chief sufferer. A vast num
ber of unhappy marriages are child
less marriages, which also accounts
for some divorces. But the state
ment or this Kansas City Judge
stands out as a haunting reminder
that something must be done to stop
divorces that disintegrate families
blessed with children.
Old Men at the Helm.
The recent death of Associate Jus
tice Harlan. of the supreme court has
directed thought to the old men hold
ing conspicuous places In the affairs
ot this country. Justice Harlan was
78, and up to the end as vigorous and
alert aa any man on the supreme
court bench. In the government
service, In literature and In business
the old men seem to be holding their
own tolerably well, despite all that Is
aid of this being the day of the
young man.
Among the men of letters one turns
instinctively to John BIgolow, who,
at 94, Is still active, and William
Dean Howells, at 74, hale and inter
esting. James Wilson, secretary of
agriculture, is 76, and gives no sign
of Inactivity. Approximately ten
United States senators have passed
their three score and ten. In the
buslnoss world Its most dominant
figure, J. Plerpont Morgan, is 74,
James J. Hill is 73 and John D. Rock
efeller and. Andrew Carneglo, retired
from active business to strenuous
philanthropy, are respectively 72 and
74. And the list of old men In less
conspicuous places who are still ac
tive would be almost interminable.
Certainly it Is long enough to dis
credit the idea that man passes his
day of usefulness at 60.
As a matter of fact the old man
should be even more prominent in
active life In the future, for the ad
vance of science toward correct living
should begin tp tell in practical re
sults. Age depends largely upon
youth. How long a man lives must
be determined, under ordinary cir
cumstances, upon how well be lives.
It Is a laudable ambition for a young
man to aspire to longevity. It has a
moral as well as physical aspect that
gives a healthful tone to all his work
and play. Llfe'a substance cannot be
wasted and conserved at the same
time, though it may be judiciously
used and conserved together. Age
ripe with experience Is needed for
successful leadership.
