Attacking- the Commerce Court.
A strong effort to abolish the new
commerce court is promised at the
coming session of congress, which
may even beronie a feature of the
session. Representative Hlnis, a
democrat of Tennessee, sponsored a
bill for that purpose at tbe last ses
sion and Is quoted as declaring bis
Intention to push It again tbls win
ter with the full ro-operatlon of
house democrats and some Insurgent
It partisan opposition, however,
la the best reason tbat can ba of
fered for tha abolition of tbe com
merce court, we doubt tbe expedi
ency of the movement. Borne solid
ground must be found on which to
base objection to the court before
the plan to wipe It out can have pop
ular support. Buch ground Is cer
tainly not to be found In a lack of
work for the court. It Is covered
up with work todsy and Is likely to
be for a long time to come. In the
minds of many besides Mr. Taft there
waa a real demand for this court,
and It baa not bad sufficient time to
prove its usefulness. It would cer
tainly be a serious error to condemn
it and abolish It simply for the sake
of petty politics.
But the abolition of the commerce
court la not quite aa Imminent as
some try to make out. Suppose the
democrats muster the necessary ma
jority In tbe bouse to pass the 81ms
bill. It would still have the senate
gauntlet to run and, though there
are a few Insurgent senators who
might Join, that would not assure
enactment of the measure, for there
Is a good deal more conservatism
among the democratic aenators than
among tbe rank and file of bouse
members. Tbe possibility of a pres
idential veto would have to be con
sidered, for tbe president would not
hesitate to veto It' If satisfied that
the court should be retained.
The fact tbat the new court has
rendered one or two so-called un
popular decisions Is not enough to
condemn It. The, Interstate Com
merce commission might easily have
fallen, into disfavor early In Ita ex
istence, but to have abolished It be
cause at first It did not give entire
satisfaction would have been the
most serious blunder. The commis
sion haa never given entire satisfac
tion, for that matter, and yet la
conceded to be a prime necessity In
our handling of great transportation
and Industrial problems.. Tbe scope
of Ita authority haa even been
widened and the commerce court cre
ated for the express purpose of mak
ing Ita decrees more speedily ef
fective. Tbe Luide of the Onion.
That In the long run, truth will
out is again Illustrated by a revela
tion Just made by the Lincoln Jour
nal with reference to that famous
Bryan onion crop, the revelation ap
parently coming with the aid, con
sent and authority of Mr. Bryan
himself. It Is In directing attention
to the everywhere prevailing and al
most irresistible temptation to ex
aggerate that Mr. Bryan gives us a
look at tbe Inside of the onion, as

few day other new-paper reports had

are, the man to whom I ranted the

The Insinuating Dance.
London has at last decided to cen
sor Its theaters, particularly those
permitting the oriental glratlons
that go by the name of dances, and
will submit all such to rigid official
America might well emulate the
British action. Many theaters In
this country are too loose In what
they allow on their stages. Just at
present a certain company of so
called eastern dancers is making its
way across the continent that needs
to come under this censoring rule.
Of course, in this as In other argu
ments of the kind, theaters will be
apt to retort that people are not
compelled to attend such produc
tions. Tbat is subterfuge, though.
when it comes to arguing tbe de-
eeucy or moral effect of the produc
Most of these insinuating contor
tions through which women draw
themselves to the delectation of the
baser senses of tbelr spectators,
should be prohibited. That would
end all argument right there. It
waa the "dawn-of-love" danc that
broke the camel's back In London,
which has heretofore stood for any
thing. American cities had better
make a note of this and watch for
It la pitiful when tbe stage has to
fall back upon ribaldry or sensuous
exposure for Its appeals to public
favor. Of course Some forms of what
is called oriental dancing are Inter

Investigating- the Express Combine.
The Interstate Commerce commis
sion is engaged in a sweeping Inves
tigation of the express companies,
their systems of rates and finances
and their methods of doing business.
Beginning the Investigations at New
York, tbe commission's plan ia to
hold them In various cities over the
country so at to make a thorough
Job of it.
Tbe commission probably never
undertook a more needed investiga
tion, one more generally welcomed
by tbe people. For years the ex
press combine haa escaped official
Inquiry or enjoyed a sort of im
munity from attack. ' And all that
time it has been the common belief
that It could not successfully with
stand an official probing because of
its blgh-handed conduct of affairs,
Its arrogance to the public, extor
tionate rates and arbitrary sched
ules. It will be Interesting now to see
Just bow it will be able to withstand
the limelight. Some of the divi
dends, that have recently been de
clared by certain companies are, in
themselves, sufficient to call for in
vestigation. Another Important mat
ter calling for explanation is tbe re
lation of express companlea to rail
roads. This inquiry Is likely to develop
some interesting Information aa to
why parcels post baa made no better
progress In this country. At last
people bave come to believe that tbe
chief obstruction to this system lies
In the express combine. Parcels post
needs look for no stronger argument
to promote it than the conduct of
the express business In this country.
A college professor calls upon
American newspapers to devote tbe
money and Ingenuity put. upon tbe
comic supplement to "a sincere en
deavor to reproduce each week one
or more of the world's great pictures,
with that beauty of coloring and
truth of portraiture that modern
methods make possible." If all the
newspaper readers were college grad
uates they might prefer a Mona Lisa
or a Sis tin Madonna to the "Katzen
Jammer Kids." We really believe,
however, that It Is up to the college
professors to do tbelr Job first, after
which the newspapers would bave no
option as to tbe road they would
have to travel.
Surely seme power of contrition
must bave come over the young Vir
