;V; ' .. Car, Shortage. -j ' ;
JThree prime causes ajfe cited by
those predicting a scripus freight car
Rhortagtf this autumnlack of suffi
cient coal .as a result o(. trouble at
the ..mines, deteriorated rolling
stock occasioned by shop strikes and
the unusually heavy demands of
traffic due largely, to. immense
crops. Another cause might be
Given," namely, the 'cbm'mbh practice
of withholding large hUhlbers of cars
from active use. This :1a done ex
tenslvely by dilatory shippers, who
have a habit of appropriating cars
for storage purposes,' taking their
own time to unload them. Cars
often stand for days on a siding
when they should and could as easily
be promptly emptied and ..sent di
rectly back into service. This is an
lmpositlonr In a. way, on the ; rail
roads, and yet It would seem that
the railroads coald, if they , would,
put a stop to It.
But we are quite accustomed to
this annual autumnal car shortage
scare and this year the enormous
crop harvests Help us, as frequently
before ,to bear up under the weight
of. the hardship. Yet It is to be
hoped that the predictions of the
scarcity of cars has been overdrawn,
for It would be too bad to levy any
extraneous impositions upon the
products of our labor in field and
Democrats and Labor.
The democrats have determined
upon a special effort to get the labor
yp,te In J be presen campaign. t-vThey
ic yiumse in meir piauorra piat
nudes and pledges they promise to
create a department of labor as a
cabinet office and have a bill for
that purpose now pending.
This new-born concern for labor
must be very interesting to' the lat
ter, especially since It avoids entirely
mention of child labor laws, for
which the unions are so Insistently
clamoring. But it would be highly
Inconsistent for the democacy, with
Its cornerstone In the southern
states, to . condemn child . labor,
which forms the principal cog In the
pivotal industry of the Bouth, Its
When the American Federation of
Labor was meeting In Atlanta, Hoke
Smith, how senator from Georgia,
poured out his panegryrics within
hearing of the busy hum of these cot
ton mills where little children, were
tolling long , houra under miserable
conditions for a pittance. And the
painful knowledge of this dulled all
ears to Mr. Smith's fervent concern
forlabor. So it will be, we imagine,
when democracy comes to make a
sham fight, ignoring these poor lit
tle serfs In the cotton mills of the
south, whose "case constitutes one of
the vital elements of the labor prob
lem of today.
The benefits of the agitation for
higher efficiency in social and in
dustrial realmB must, be. measured by
the number of Individuals aroused,
for the Individual, of course, is the
unit of action. And' It will not do
to leave the work of arousing the
individual .entirely to the moral in
fluence of the movement.
It Is safe to say that most of us
operate on a basis somewhat short of
100 per cent. The average individual
does not produce up to the maximum
of his ability, although the causoi
of this differs with different persons.
With some, it la indolence,' with
others, ignorance, vanity,-dishonesty
or lack of proper training, The dis
covery of the cause must, in most
cases, be left for the Individual. All
outside influence can hope to do is to
Inspire a determination to make the

achievements this ' would be with
every individual making his pow
ers' serve bim and his fellows

sults would overrun us. But that

for a long while, long enough to al
low for all the energy that may be
expended In this task of arousing

after Romulus founded the city of Rome,

traditions. From that day to this his
descendants. In unbroken succession have
ruled over the. Land of the Rising Sun.
Mutsuhlto, who died in th early morning
of July 30. was the 121st of the Imperial
line. He was born In Kyoto November 3,

park adjoining the palace grounds and
now within a stone's throw of Doshisha

The house was pointed out to me when I

It was my great privilege to be pre

"Son of Heaven." voluntarily gave his
people self-government without a revolu

which occupies the area between the sec

this space without being detained by the
guards, the embassy livery evidently be

through the double hedge known as

two through the beautifully kept grounds.
we arrived At the front entrance of the
Imperial residence. The - canon of Jap
anese architecture as well as art Is the
elegance of simplicity. Consequently we
were not surprised to find the palace a
very broad and long one-story building,
furnisned i simply vliufc In the most ex

taken to the audience room of the em

houses are next to. the outer walls and
the various rooms open Into the halls.
Consequently the hallB are light and the
roome .are dark. , Aa we approached the
dark threshold of the audience room we
halted, and then, at the proper signal,
Mr. Rusnell walked In with the charge.
They gave us esch the honor ot a sepa

go in , together. . I had ' hardly time to
look out of the window of the hall upon
a lovely bit ot typical Japanese garden
landscape when I saw Mr. Russell back

my sldo whispered "Proceed." ,'
As I entered the august presence I saw
his ma Jetty standing In the center of a
group of seven 6t eight men. He held
his hand out toward me. as If he ex

Faintly now the reaper's whirr
Strikes upon my sluggish ear ;
From the golden field;
Overhead the branches green.
Sifting sunbeams down between,
Light and darknesa yield.

Shadows sometimes falling through,
Picture quaint and rare.
Hum of bee and song Of bird
Tinkling bell df grazing herd,
Beat the drowsy air.
Cooling breeae and limped stream,
Lulling Into midday dream,
Bringing perfect rest.

Shadows to the eastward grow;
Crimson is the west.

Putting earthly fires to Shame,
Fill the daszled eye;
See. the sky Is In a blaze!
Thus the splendid summer days
