Good News for the Weit.
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

Maine' Mystery Unsolved.
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.

Is a harsh repudiation of the call he

How can the church afford to do
this, or even to encourage the

more pivotal men in Its pulpits and

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

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

couples. The church is in good Von

It may be admitted that this man

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

about 3$ and many not then. To drop

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
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.

would' not fall into the error of sug

For longer than a - century the
skilled .workman, not only of Amer

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

the fact 'that many of the men who
have only their labor to sell are still

- Wonders of Irrigation.
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

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
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.
