A rontlnulna- appropriation of 12.000,000 yearly for MIkrouM river .Improvement, as recommended In the rlveri and harbors report lo ron gictR, means much to this -.vpetrn country. That amount of money properly expended upon the river would put It In good shape, with what local sectional support rould -lo, for navigation and offer fruitful results In Ihe form of better freight rat-. Whenever the people begin to make line of the MlBnourl for transportation purposes they will take the rate sit uation very much in their own hands, so far as trafflo that can be carried on the river Is concerned. The resident nd the government engineering department should re celve the co-operation of the west In the advanced poaltlon taken. The west haa Buffered for want cf thla vry thing. Ita development, rapid aa It haa been, would have been more rapid with full advantage of river navigation. The claim Is made that its advance has been serlourly re tarded because of thla lark. But this is the time, not for repining over what haa or might have been, but for looking to what will or might be. It has taken good, hard pulling, to draw even thla much assurance out of tho government at Washington for Missouri river aid, and all communi ties have not done their share of the pulling. When the results are finally cast up It will be only fair to give most of the credit to Kansas City, which haa tugged away at tho old ropo In aeaaon and out and gone ahead on Its own hook, largely,, and established a packet line. Undoubt edly this haa been a forceful object lesson to 'the federal government. ' Jt la to te hoped the Standard Oil, under tho reorganisation, will remoro tho.TioUto' t rom the canVapout.

The official, and, presumably, the final, report on the sinking of the bat tleship Maine In Havana harbor is In, and the mystery of the Maine still exists, at latest. so far aa the general public is concerned. The report says tho sh(p was blown up from without, not within, nd inclines to the. theory that the explosion? came from a' sub marine mine and enda there. How the mine was planted or by whom Is not stated, neither is any theory of It offered. The: Intimation Is that the report contains more complete in formation, but that this will filed away in the sex ret archives ;of tho government, probably never', to be made public. 1 . ' ' ' It la. after all. of Ittle. concern to the Amerlckn people how or by what means the Maine was destroyed with Its loss of precious human Uvea. His tory Iwill not record that.' that ex plosion caused the Spanish .war, or did more than merely crystallise feel ing long gathering Into action and hasten results. The causes lay burled deeper even than any submarine-inline and antedated Ihe horror of Havana harbor, though, of course, the shock ing sensation and the cry of Spanish perfidy that day, which rang out around the world, played a vital part In precipitating hostilities. The cause of humanity has not suffered by the results of this war; destiny, we may well believe, has not been diverted from Its course. Nothing has hap pened since to discredit the wisdom of America's action. and tell him that from then on he must do his acting behind the scenes, Is a harsh repudiation of the call he answerod to enter the ministry. How can the church afford to do this, or even to encourage the tendency? It Is crying today for more pivotal men in Its pulpits and the need' will not be denied. "The church does not want merely the mediocre young man, but him 6f rare powers, the leader, who is able to cope with the world in any capacity. Dut to such an one the church tAat would draw the age line at 50 must be frank enough to say' at the nut sot that "at 50 we uhafl throw you Into the class of undesirables." How many such young men will It enlist that way? Let some of the shrinking sem inary rolls answer. There Is enough in the natural economic conditions and materialistic tendencies to deter young men from the Christian ministry. Certainly the church should add no obstacles. It might better address Itself to the task of showing that some of the most powerful and successful ministers of this and every age have 'been the old men of ripened experience and mellow wisdom.

It Is barely possible that some of those churches that draw the age line against the old man in the pulpit might learn something to their ad vantage by writing to the Presbyte rian church of Wakefield. Neb. Ac cording to the Continent, the leading journal of - that - denomination," the Wakefield congregation, which loat Its pastor In Jnly, 1110, determined not to call a minister -who was as much aa (0 years of hge'aud did without a pastor until April, 1811. "Finally," says the Continent. "It asked a man 72 years old to become stated supply. In September It unanl mously asked that he should be In stalled aa permanent pastor. Since that time he baa secured a subscrip tion of $6,093 to remodel the church edifice. He preached every evening except Saturdays for four weeks and haa received Into the church forty persons, including eight married couples. The church is in good Von ditlon, splrltuslly, numerically and financially." It may be admitted that this man is exceptionally effective as a pastor for his age, and yet his case stsnds aa a solemn and severe rebuke to the church that acts on or entertains this fooliah not only foolish, but this unjust, un-ChrUtlah notion with respect to the rights of the aged minister and the church's duty toward thrin and him. It Is bad enough for men advancing in years In secular callings to have to baud themselves together . to resist the growing prejudice against years, as some hare done In Chicago and else where, but it is much worse to find such a condition in the church. Hut It Is poof economy, as well aa grace, from the cburth'a standpoint. Let'a see. Say the dead line Is to be drawn on a minister at 48, how many tars of desirable service does thst give him? Not much. If any, over twenty and often not twenty. The man who gets Into the pulpit much before 30 probably geta there too early. The average preacher does not come into the eenlth of his power until be Is about 3$ and many not then. To drop the curtain on blm at 4 8, or even 60, Power of Public Sentiment. Discussing the history of anti-trust litigation In the current Political Science Quarterly, Prof. Henry R. Seager of Columbia university de clares that Indifference on the part of responsible officials made the law prsctlcally a dead letter until re cently. He adds that three succes sive presidents and five attorneys general were remiss in their duties. or this law would have been sooner enforced. Literally speaking. Prof. Sea ger Is perhaps correct, but he must allow for the lack of a power quite as essential and cogent in obtaining results as executive Initiation, the power of public sentiment. It has taken yeara of persistent agitation to bring the public to the point of de manding enforcement of the Sher man antitrust law and even now, un der all the stress of an aroused and educated public' opinion, it' Is none too easy for energetic prosecutors to make satisfactory headway. "The responsible' officials" were not so much to blame It would teem as was the sentiment of their day. The country was not then ready for rigid discipline of large aggregatlona of wealth. ' The public had not bad the experience with theae Institutions that It has since had,, and It had not given the necessary thought to them. It la true enough that Senator Sher man, when be Introduced' his orig inal bill providing for an avtl-trust law, saw the necessity of curbing large aggregations... of wealth, but comparatively .( beside Senator Sherman saw it. The Ohio senator's speeches lo 'support offbbr bill in 1S90 rang with a vlaion far more penetrating than other people then laid claim to. He predicted the con ditions to which, aa a result of un bridled ' power, these gigantic cor porations would lead us and 'such men as Senator Hoar, who Teally wrote the substitute bill tbat super seded Sherman'a and . finally, became the law, shared hla convictions.' " But these men were ahead of their time, that is, their tlme'did, not see what they saw and not until .the country waa slowly educated up to It, did It see It. The anti-trust senti ment of today could no more have fitted into the thought of the. people as a whole twenty years ago than could many other later changes. uaaWe . to . repay . their , benefactor.

Frank 'A.' Vanderllp ssys in the Outlook: I believe that. If the workmen of thla country uw clearly what unrestrained competition . apells In the relation be tween Industry and labor, there would ha a unanimous protect from the labor world against the theory .that monopo Ilatlo tendencies In Industrie are beat controlled by destroying- large corpora tion with a view to enforcing sharper competition. Mr. Vanderllp'a illustration Is inept,'.' if not entirely Inappropriate, and were' he ss closely familiar with other, conditions of life in this coun try as. he is with the affairs of the financial circles' In which he moves he would' not fall into the error of sug gesting that the, workingmen ot. the United States require any education to convince them of the evils of unre stricted competition. ' ( For longer than a - century the skilled .workman, not only of Amer ica, but of the world, have been com batting for the recognition ot the doctrine of collective bargaining. This doctrine is the outgrowth of un fortunate experience that proved to the workman the .fallacy and ruina tion of unrestricted competition In the sale of his labor. NMr. Vanderlip points out In the article referred to (hat unrestricted competition be tween firms engaged in the same line of business carried to Its logical end means loss of money to both and the ultimate consolidation of the two concerns In order that ruin may not engulf both. Thla lesson was very early learned by the mechanics under the new Industrial system that fol lowed on the supplanting of the hand crafts by machinery. That the prac tice ot collective bargaining la not generally prevalent la In no wise chargeable to the intelligent work ingmen of the country, but Is due to the fact 'that many of the men who have only their labor to sell are still misled by the fatuous cal) of ' indi vidualism" in the mstter of making bargalna for their only asset.

The irrigation experts have spent much time during the last week In convention at Chicago palming beau tiful plcturea of the possibilities of wealth and slothful ease that comes to him who has a sufficient acreage of outdoors under ditch. Now and then the prospect was tinged with. a sober hue by someone who Insisted in breaking into the hertuonlous flow of picturesque poesy with some prac tical suggestion or Illustration of the more sordid side of agriculture as carried on in the Irrigated regions. That Uncle Sam baa been a bounti ful provider for his sons and daugb ters none will challenge. From the beginning until the present day he has bestowed with lavish hand the most wonderful bounty that ever fell from a government to Its people. Millions of happy home throughout the country and peaceful firesides where plenty dwells, attest the fond affection of good old Uncle Sam for his nephews and nieces. And when he. had given away all the fruitful acres of hla apparently endless do main he began by scientific research to determine how to win back to pro ductiveness, the soemringly hopeless arid waatea that were gathered to gether under the generic classifica tion of "desert." Having determined that water 'added to land produced crops, he 'set about to secure the water and provide for fts application to the soil to the end"' that other f his sons and daughters -might b made happy and comfortable In, some situation. And now (he old gentleman's gen erosity is about to- be given a further test. In the prosperity that has fol lowed the flowing of the water at Uncle Sam'a command, hla bene ficiaries have found themselves Occa sionally so burdened with new duties and new aspirations that' they are Envy and Jealousy. What common faulta are these envy and jealousy, yet how profitless and foolish. Whether one envies a natural endowment or an attainment achieved by dint of human ef fort. It Is the grossest of follies. No person Is entirely unendowed by na ture and In the dispensation of prov idential gifts the element ef compen sation counts for something; surely the distribution is not all onesided. The envious man may have qualities which the envied lacks, but likes What a pity, Inatead ot waatlng time coveting . another's possessions, he does not tske lime to appreciate his own talents.' v How much happier and better off he and the world would be. Aa for envy, jealousy of ac quired powers, It would be much mere sensible and profitable to aet about matching wits for wits in a determination to achieve instead of covet. J' " ' No one la envious or jealous of anything or anybody beneath him; It Is always ot a auperlor. Envy and Jealousy, therefore, are signs and Belf-confessions of weakness, la wardly or outwardly, the admission Is nfade of a deficiency in poifcwilon or acquisition. This Is a passion and an. uae any otner passion, indicates a lack of self-control, weakness. Oth erwlae strong characters sre often subject to this emotion, but' where they give it unbridled sway over incir Detter seir, tney conquer strength with weakness and not only lose for the time being, but loosen their grip on themselves for another test, making It easier next time for the green-eyed 'passion to rule. . If one would stop to think that) it may not be well for him to have all that his neighbor has and vice versa, he would have leas difficulty in curb ing those twin passions of jealousy and envy. Mr. G I fiord Pinchot lifts up his voice at Chicago to announce that the case of President Taft ia honelesa. which may serve to remind the casual observer of American polltlca that earlier in the week Mr. Taft pointed out that Mr, Pinchot'a seal for for estry led him to the extent of advo cating a 2 duty on lumber at the time Mr. Taft waa endeavoring to se cure the removal of the tariff entirely from that commodity.
