Republicans and Pensions.
The record of the republican party
on the matter of pensions for the old
soldiers is one of its proudest ex
hibits. Krom the time Lincoln issued
his call for volunteer soldiers fifty
years ago, for the purpose of putting
down the rebellion, to the present
day, the republican party baa shown
that It appreciates the sacrifice made
by those patriotic men.
When the Sherwood pension bill
was passed by the house of repre
sentatlves a few days ago, it was
heralded as a democratic measure. A
little analysis of the vote will show
the falsity of this clajm. The dem
ocrats are in the majority In the
house, and yet tbe roll call discloses
the fact that 13? republicans were
recorded In favor of the bill and only
ninety-seven democrats. The repub
licans furnlHhed G8 per cent of the
votes for the bill; the democrats 43
per cent. Of all the republicans in
the house 80 per cent voted for the
bill, snd only 43 per cent of the dem
ocrats. The republicans, with only
4 2 per cent of the membership of
the house, furnished 58 per cent of
the votes for the bill. The democrats,
with 58 per cent of the bouse mem
bership, furnished but 4 2 per cent of
the votes for the bill.
This comparison shows most con
clusively the attitude of the two great
parties towards the old aoldiers of the
country. The veterans of today, who
were the boys of '61, must still turn,
as they did then, to the republican
part when they seek relief from con
ditions Imposed by old age and
natural consequences of the hard
ships and privations they bore while
they were following Old Glory across
the southern fields facing embattled
democracy, arrayed against them
then. Just as they meet it today in
the balls of congress.
"The Scandal of Lawless Law."
Carl Snyder in Collier's uses this
caption on which to preach a power
ful sermon on "The utter anarchy of
the administration of Justice In the
United States." He proceeds from
these two salient points: ,
1. Can he (any man) go to a lawyer In
the average case and obtain an honest
opinion upon which he may rely as to
what la the law?
2. Can he go to the courts end, without
undue delay and without ruinous cost.
The writer then declares:
I believe no one with an open mind will
review the decisions of our multitudes of
courts, wbo will follow a sufficient num
ber of trlala to their laaue. can answer
these two question otherwlas than with
a flat no.
But It may be aald that both. Col
lier's add Mr. Snyder are disposed to
take a radical view of such subjects
and that there is already too much
fault finding with our courts and our
lawyers. Then turn from this "radi
cal" view and take the highest offi
cial view obtainable in this land,' that

American Influence in China,
Premier Yuan Shi Kal has proved
his distinction of "the strong man of
China," by his ultimatum vetoing the
movement for a republic Immediately
and declaring for a limited monar
chy. It in practically certain bis
policy will prevail. It will undoubt
edly be the best stopping point for the
present agitation, though in time
China Is destined to be a republic.
But It will be when its own develop
ment has brought It further along the
graduated scale that separatee imper
ialism from democracy. It would be
as bad for the principles of democ
racy as for China's immediate wel
fare for the transition to be preclpl
tated. It takes time after the process
Is begun to make the oldest of ultra
Imperialism over Into a republic. It Is
quite likely, therefore, that America
will unite with England and other
leading powers in persuading China
to get off its train of evolution at
this half-way station of limited mon
archy, to resume its journey later.
When democracy does come to
China, it will be due largely to Amer
ican influence. By a slow process
of education, we have done much to
arouse China from its centuries-old
lethargy and Infuse into its people a
new energy and vision. Our mission
aries, our diplomats, our commercial
agents and our travelers have all
helped in this work; of education, in
setting 'object lessons before the
Chinese. It Is said that the Chinese
are the' best of imitators, that the
way to teach tbera how to do a thing
is to do that thing for them. This
has been our system. Every time we
as a government have rubbed elbows
with China, we have tended to ele
vate that nation, as, for instance, in
the case of the remission of the Boxer
iademnttles. When the final accounts
are cast up, that stroke of John Hay
diplomacy will have to be reckoned
as pivotal in tbe results. What leaven
of democracy American-educated Chi
nese youth are today carrying back to
their country is not for this genera
tion to estimate. We have inculcated.
then, the principles of democracy in
the Chinese bosom by living those
principles, and while he is not yet
ready to embrace it fully, he will be

India's New Capital.
The crowning of King George as em
peror of India at Delhi waa an event of
surpassing magnificence. Correpsondents
on the spot overwork the stock of super
latives In striving to convey to the out
side world a moving picture of royalty of
the east and the weat In conjunction. In
many respects It was an unprecedented
affair. It waa the first time the British
ruler visited and received the homage of
the native princes of India. It was the
first time the emperor of India appeared
In person at the ancient capital of the
Mogul rulers and proclaimed hla king
ship. A setting of danllng splendors on
a munificent scale made former durbars
by proxy appear, as a side show to this
royal performance. The location chosen
for the crowning scene and the presence
of the emperor and empress. In them'
selves constitute a shrewd and wise stroke
of policy. But the surprising stroke of
all was the Imperial decree transferring
the capital of India from Calcutta to
Delhi. Many reasons are assigned for
this change. It is supposed that the ac
tivity of the Bengalese is discrediting
British rule and rulers, Inspired the
change. Most of the discontent existing
In Indian is confined to Bengal. The Ben
galese have been favored at the govern
ment pie counter, honored with the capi
tal and Its emoluments. Yet they were
not bppy. An indefinite leave of ab
sence from the good things dispensed by
a philanthropic government. It Is sug
gested, may bring about the kicking Ben-
valese to a realization of their folly. For
over a century, In fact, even since Lake
captured Delhi in 1803, the English have
had a strong desire to locate their capital
there. Calcutta Is malarial; Delhi salu
brious. Calcutta is ugly; Delhi beautiful.
Calcutta is on tha rim of India; Delhi in
the center. Calcutta's history is a back
ground of fever swept marshes, tigers and
orooodlles; Delhi's history Is a back
ground of thrones which run from Maha
ratta to Moslem, from Moslem to Mogul,
through 8, SOD years. Allen royalty is more
securely sheltered in the midst of native
royalty, and at the hub of millions of
subjects to whom the literature of revolu
tion Is a closed book. Delhi la a city of

Both houses of tha British Parliament
have passed tha Lloyd-George bill pro
viding for Insurance against slcknesa and
unemployment. The scheme embraces all
claases of workers, even down to domestic
servants, and It the most comprehensive
plan of compulsory thrift undertaken by
any nation. Similar Insurance Is In vogue
in Germany, but It limited the workers
in factories and mines and a few other
Industries. In both Instances the workers
contribute to the insurance fund. The
British measure, now a law, requires that
a man shall pay cents, the employer 1
cents and the state 4 centa. In return the
Insured receives free medical attendance
by a doctor of his own selection from a
panel of doctors, and free medicines.;
sick-pay at tha rate of 13.50 a week the
first three months, $1.25 for the next three
months and for life In case of permanent
Invalidism. For women the payments and
benefits are lower and Include maternity
benefits. It Is estimated that 8.200,000 men
and,'3, 900,000 women come within the com
pulsory class, and that of the, total an
nual fund of $118,000,000, the state will con
tribute over $27,000,000. In certain highly
skilled trades like that of ship- building
a beginning is also made in insurance
against unemployments, except in case of
strikes, on further payments by the three
parties. National sanitariums are also to
be established for the treatment of tuber
culosis. Pensions la Other Cna tries.
Insurance against sickness was inaug
urated In Germany In 1884 and has since
been enlarged In many directions. The
workman, the employer and the com
munity contribute to the fund. A second
Insurance fund ts provided against acci
dent. Practically all German working
men are Insured against old age. The
old age funds are supplied by the em
ployers and the employes In equal shares
and the empire adds J1J.B0 to each pen-
alon. Practically all laborers of France,
as well aa state employee, benefit from
the workmen's pension bill that became
a law in 1910. In Australia about $7,600,-
000 is expended annually In old age pen
sions to men of 65 and over and women
of 60. New Zealand in 190S paid pensions
to 14,398 persons over 85 years old. Spain
Inaugurated a national Insurance system
for old age in 19U0. In 1008 Denmark paid
to old age pensioners $2,446,000. To a
limited extent old age pensions prevail
In Italy, and in Austria provision Is made
for workers in mines only.

The streets are full of people.
The stores are full of buyers,
The wagons full of merchandise
And the heart full of desires.
The shops are full of bargains,
The counters full of fads.
The windows full of pretty things
And the papers full of ads.
The arms are full of bundles.
The feet are full of speed.
The head la full of planning '
And some folks are full of need.
Mall cars are full of packages
They're most too full to run;-
Grownups are full of secrets
And kidlets full of fun.
The land Is full of hustle
From the Arctic to the Isthmus
And everv heart Is full of Joy,
For . the air Is full of Christmas.
This world's so full of pent-up Joy
Clear to Its upper crust;
If Christmas doesn't hurrv up
I greatly fear 'twill bust.
