The Muckraker'i Eoomeranf?.
The New Tork Tribune wishes to
know why Chairman Graham and his
democratic colleagues hare dropped
the Dlck-to-Dlck Investigation. Of
course, the Tribune knows It was be
reuse tbe thing had begun to sting
them; It proved to be a boomerang
and a dangerous one at that. But
the perlntent story of the Dlck-to-Dlrk
letter was damaging to reputa
tions nnd In Justice to them tbe full
est public airing of tbe facts should
here been made by this committee
of the house. Oh, yes, that Is all
true enough, but that would not
have helped the administration's
traducers. Since the nlck-to-Dlck
fake was so completely exploded and
the bottom fell out of the whole
Controller bay fabrication, the Gra
ham committee simply did not dare
proceed with lis so-called investiga
tion. The end would nave been
worse for it by that route than It 1
by the one the committee took, for
It would have kept the matter fresh
in the public mind, whereas by
quietly dropping the whole thing the
public may forget It.
Nothing Is qulto as dead In this
country today as muckraking. It
lived a short and Ignoble life and
died a sudden and Ignominious
death. It did a good deal of mis
chief to reputations while It lasted,
but If actual muckraking contributed
anything of permanent good, then It
Is not apparent.
As a matter of simple Justice to
the president and others concerned
In those malicious canards about
Controller bay and the Dlck-to-Dlck
lettor altogether one of the most
shameless and monumental frauds
ever perpetrated on the puhllti the
Investigation, so-called, should have
been carried out and the facts more
thoroughly and publicly exposed.
8!mply to step from under the fabric
of falsehoods and let the whole
structure fall In silence under the
welrht of Its own disgrace Is adding
Insult to Injury Inflicted. But, of
course, those who would make such
charges unsupported by fact would
do tbe rest.
Those who wonder where all the
efficient agricultural school grad
uates find employment should ask
Pecrefary Wilson of the Department
of Agriculture. He shows that In
stead of the supply of plant pathol
ogists exceeding the demand, it falls,
far below, and In his latest report
asserts that every year requests
come from experimental stations
and similar Institutions for per
sons qualified for plant path
ological rexearch, "and unfortunately
In a rer considerable number of
these cases we have to say that, glad
ss we would be to recommend per
sons, there are none fn tight with
the necessary training."
Now. thia does not mean that the
aupply of, agricultural achool prod
ucts has been exhausted. Secretary
Wilson says that while these col
leges and universities are doing well,
It often happens that their gradu
ates lack the necessary outlook or
training to fit them for practical re
sults In the field. This Is some
what of a reflection upon these
schools, of course. 80 the depart
ment. Itself, Mr. Wilson says, would
be glad to have In training for suoh
positions an additional number of
yonng men. ;
This ought to become a very at
tractive field for young men. The
government Is doing an extensive
business In promoting Intensive agri
culture and from year to year the
results are bound to multiply. And
the secretary says that this very Isck
of a sufficient number of plant
pathologists is working to the seri
ous disadvantage of agriculture In
this country, a fact that had to be
brought to public attention to be
Trnst Meat and Telhi Thirbar.
While King George and Queen
Mary are having themselves crowned
sovereigns of some 89S.OOO.OOO poor
people in semi-pagan India, at a cost
of something like $10,000,000 to the
latter, the labor and radical elements
of Rngland are forcing the govern
ment bars up against trust-packed
meat from America. "If eating the
trust's meat make my brother to
offend," says Johnny Bull. "I will eat
no more of this meat while the aults
against the trust standeth." And
Mr. Armour, one of thoae on trial,
says the cancellation of these orders
will mean tens of millions of dollars
to the American packers.
8urely the strange anachronism
cannot escape even the king or Eng
land, Ireland, 'ales and emperor of
ludla and several other portions of
tbe world. Nobody ever heard of
Toryism screwing up Us face at a
trust-prepared article of food. Even
tbe reports admit that tbe power be
hind the throne Is the radical ele
ment. 60 it la In more than this
matter. It Is the same power that
emasculated tbe rule of the peers
and paved the way to a larger meas
ure of popular government democ
racy, whose leaven Is at work
With ravishing display of pomp
and cermony, King George and
Qneen Mary are crowned at Delhi in
the presence of hordes of hungry
beggars, while the breadlines at
home continue to lengthen. The
contrast la a bold one. The king's
visit to India Is the first he has made
to any of his out-dorulnlons, whotie
friendly support he reslir.es now is
Important. But It Is only a part of
the mad race between democracy and
Imperialism. All the axtoundng
brilliance of the Delhi durbar cannot
blind the eyes of the English to that,
and It even remains to he seen how
much It daisies the senses of the In
dians, who, as the king appreciates,
already have begun to dream dreams
and see visions, especially their
Winning Fight on Opium.
Statistics given out from Ban
Francisco show that 60 per cent of
the habitual criminals of that state
and 40 per rent of the insane are
what Is commonly known as "dope
fiends," or are addicted to the use of
opium. It would be Interesting to
know how these percentages run In
other states. Of course, they are
not so high, for California, with Its
large Chinese population, would nat
urally suffer more from the per
nicious habit than other parts of tbe
country. Yet other parts of the
country are In the grip of It, so much
so as to prompt the president to call
attention of the people to the urgent
necessity of promoting a crusade
This crusade in California has be
gun to yield results. That state,
through its State Board of Pharmacy,
Is attacking the evil on the side of
t lie tram c In opium, morphine and
cocaine, and thus far has brought to
conviction In San Francisco tlone
150 persons, and la prosecuting Its
work vigorously. In its net It has
caught druggists, drug peddlers,
physicians and, of course, many
Chinese. California, therefore, with
all Its political reforms, has not been
so deeply engrossed but It could find
time to give to this other excellent
campaign. It Is a campaign In the
Interest of the moral, mental and
physical salvation of the people. The
terrible consequences of the "dope"
habit need no exaggeration to get
them before an Intelligent mind. In
its demoralizing power and influence
it Is the worst of habits and It Is
high time that self-respecting people,
acting through state and national
governments, were rousing them
selves to stamping It out, at least to
extinguishing the Illegal traffic In the
terrible drug Other cities should
emulate the example of San Fran
cisco. Not a city tn the land but
suffers to some extent from the vice
China, from which the drug and
the habit were brought to this coun
try, Is, itself, making effective head
way in a similar national crusade.
China, under the spell of Amorlcan
Influence, largely, awoke several
years ago to the deadly destruction
this evil wrought among Its own peo
ple and to the realization that If
China ever came Into possession of
Its natural powers It would have to
shake off this leech of vice first. We
certainly roust wish China every suc
cess tn Its crusade, but we cannot
afford to be outdone by China.
The Douglas County Bar associa
tion, having set about to clean bouse,
should make a complete Job of It.
The committee named to act for the
association In the matter Is com
posed of men of high standing In
their profession, who will have a
thorough understanding of the grav
ity of the task laid upon them. They
should go to the bottom of the
trouble and set before tbe public the
truth concerning the alleged Jury
bribing that has been talked of so
long, to the end that the scandal will
be forever quieted. If verdicts are
a matter of barter and sale In our
courts, It ought to be known, in or
der that litigants tnay be prepared
for what Is before them. ,
Come on, now; yon must do It this

There Is nothing surprising, to thoee
who know tha situation at the capitol in
Its relation to army affairs, to discover
in th army appropriation bill as pre
pared for committee consideration the
claus restoring the allowance for cloth
ing for enlisted men In accordance with
general order No. 67 of MIL It was un
wise for th War department to under
take to make a reduction In th Inoom of
the soldier In such a direction, and th
action was the more Inexplicable because
of th determination of congress, or at
least of the house, to make reductions en
Its ewn account sufficient for all pur
poses. The rebuke to the War department
conveyed In this provision of the array
bill Is as unmistakable as it Is deserved.
This clause In the bill . likely to en
counter no opposition in the house and
senate, whatever else may engage an
tagonism. rnlform t'nlforwis.
There Is one feature ef th Hay army
appropriation bill which will be welcome
to most army officers, and this Is a pro
hibition against changea In the uniform
without statutory authority. The expense
to which every officer la put whenever a
new chief of staff decrees a change In the
uniform to make It accord with hi pre
conceived notions, or even when such
change la th result of good and suffi
cient reasons, has long constituted no
small hardship. Uniforms are expensive
probably far more so than Is at all nec
essaryand whenever a change Is decreed
(he officers are at the mercy of the army
tailors that Is, those who make uniforms
for the officers, not those who ara em
ployed for the benefit of the enlisted
men. If, therefore, congress will enact
a law prohibiting changes without Its au
thority, tha officers will be delighted, and
their gratitude would know no bounds if
congress could and would then devise a
method of taking from Itself the power
to authorise such changes.
Dlsnsfaeed West Polatera,
The president has taken the proper
position In refusing to do anything in
behalf of cadets who have been dis
missed from the military aoadvmy for
violation of th regulations. A sena
torial delegation called on the president
Wednesday to ask him to reopen the
rases of five former cadets' two from
Georgia, obe from Florida, one from Dela
ware and on from Virginia. Mr, Taft
was so firmly Intrenched In his position
that he Informed hi visitors of his In
tention to veto any legislation aiming to
rtstor to th military academy cadet
who- had been dismissed. He pointed out
to the senators what they should have
known that such ' action, following the
recommendation of dismissal from the
academic authorities, was damaging to
discipline at Wast Point. There would
be no appeal In such eases If th presi
dent and the War department adhered
to a policy which regarded the dismissal
on ' academic recommendations as final.
Departures from such a rule have given
opportunity for th exercise of political
and personal Influence, which would not
be Invoked If the president adopted a
rule and stuck to It. Of course, the same
principle applies to the naval academy.
During the last two week two bill havt
been Introduced In the house aiming to
reinstate former midshipmen who were
Abolltloa ef Meyer Cade.
Major General Leonard Wood, chief et
staff, has again taken up the question of
abolishing the Meyer eode used in the
army. This code, corresponding to that
used In the operation of the Ardo.s llgiits
on vessels of th navy, has . long been
considered obsolete by oftlcers of th
signal corps. Inasmuch aa the code is
supposed to be used for communication
between the army and navy during Joint
expeditions, the War department has
heretofore been unable to drop the code
without the approval of the Navy depart
ment It abolition baa been urged for
almost a quarter of a century, but every
movement to bring It about has ended
with reference of tbe matter to the navy.
In view of wlreles communication, it Is
possible that the War department will act
irrespective of the navy. It Is strongly
urged that th army and navy use the
Morse and continental codes on the flags
for lnter-communlcatlon. These codes are
much more rapid than th Meyer. The
latter could be continued In use on the
Ardois system of th vessels of the navy.
Much time I lost by th office, s and
men of the signal corps In learning this
code, which I seldom used and which Is
easily forgotten. While the new signal
corps drill regulations provide for the
us of th Morse and continental codes,
It Is hoped to drop the Meyer cod en
tirely. Daaftresi Preeedeat Stopped,
