limits of Automatic Compensation
A ponderous volume of nearly
1,200 pages on the law of wort
men's compensation and state InBur
ance already on the book market is
a reminder that there are limits to
the automatic operation of any re
form. The mere size of this work,
which is probably only the forerun
ner of many more to come, and the
multitude of cases cited growing out
of compensation laws, must relieve
fears of lawyers who thought they
saw an end threatened to all litiga
tion along this line.
. There is no dodbt that workmen's
compensation laws can, and will, stop
many lawsuits that now burden the
dockets of our courts by providing
a quicker and fairer way of adjust
ing claims of injured workmen, and,
particularly by giving the benefits to
those really entitled to them rather
than, as now, overpaying the few,
while forcing the many to bear their
own loss. It Is' well, however, to
recognize the fact that no auto
matic device can be made to fit all
me varying vicissitudes or lire, or
reconcile contradictory evidence of
persons who see the same accident
from different viewpoints. ,
No compensation law yet proposed
makes recovery unconditional. That
all sorts of debatable; questions are
bound constantly to arise is' Indicated
by the subject matter of this volume
wno.is a. workman ana who Is an
employer?. .'What, Is casual employ'
ment as distinguished from regular
employment? , What to serious and
willful misconduct? What is tempo

disability? When Is a etelmant-rightly

au tnese- questions, ana many
more,' must arBa i114 '.recur - under

of enforcing liability. ' The fa'ct that
there -are liraitations.'Tiwhfch'in the
nature of things cannot be overcome,
does not make this proposed reform
any less desirable, but it is mani
festly wrong to mislead people Into
the belief that the enactment of a
workmen's compensation law is the

Delivery of, the Sunday Newspaper.
Just now the postmaster general
and his assistants are bending tbeir
energies to devise ways and means
of jutting In .force the congressional
order closing first and second clans
postoffices on Sundays, and to do so
without clogging the arteries of the
mails and without inflicting unneces
sary hardship upon postof flee ' patrons.
Everyone will, agree that postal
clerks and carriers are entitled to
liberal treatment in ' the matter of
days and hours of work, but congress
evidently took the step it did with
out' considering the consequences
carefully or guarding sufficiently
against incidental 'difficulties. It
could have accomplished all that is
really desirable by merely insuring
postof flee employes one day of rest
out of seven. and prohibiting - any
work on Sunday that can as well be
done on a week day.
. Bo far as newspapers are con
cerned, the Sunday issue of the paper
has come in this modern day to be
as much of a necessity to the lntelli
gent person keeping abreast of the
times as the week-day issue, and it
devolves upon the postofflce authori
ties anil the publishers to work out a
way of getting the Sunday newspa
per in the hands of the subscriber
who wants it without unusual delay.
The vast majority of readers of The
Sunday See live in cities where The
Bee maintains Its own delivery sys
tem, and cannot by any possibility be
affected by postofflce changes. To
the others we wish to give assurance
that arrangements will be perfected
wherever necessary to continue to
serve them with their Sunday news
papers promptly.
Color Only Skin Deep
After a great tempest in a teapot
the American Bar association, com
posed of the most able and distin
guished members of the legal pro
fession in this country, side-stepped
the color question by adopting a
resolution affirming the membership
rights of the three negroes who had
been admitted, but at the same time
reciting that it was never contem
plated that members of the colored
race should become members of that
association, and requiring in' the fu
ture recommendations of colored
lawyers for membership to set forth
that fact explicitly. " By this self
contradictory action the ' lawyers
have apparently gotten out, of their
quandary without repudiating tor er
pelUng the objectionable member,
and yet shutting the door to future
repetition of the humiliating situa
tion. V 1 -
This squabble over negro. members
we have referred to'as a tempest In
the teapot. Everybody knows 'that
color is but skin deep, and that a' lot
of people with white exteriors are
blacker underneath , than the darkest
Senegambian who ever came out of
Africa. Everybody knows, too,, that
subcutaneous black is. not confined
to any particular occupation or call
ing, but is' to he found in the legal
profession the same as elsewhere
The presumption is that the local
councils recommend for membership
tn the American Bar association only
lawyers of good repute' and clean
records, but that presumption is no
more a certainty in this respect than
has been the presumption that the
recommendation of a negro would be
accompanied by a statement of his
color. If the association 1b here
after going to be so particular as to
external color It ought to exact of
aspirants for admission into the
charmed circle sworn answers also
to various questions framed to estab
lish unimpeachable qualifications
We repeat that a man need not have
a black skin to have a black record,
and the gradations of the one
should demand as much, at least, at
tention as the gradations of the other
in conferring the Bar association
patent of legal nobility.
Wise Sir Wilfred.'
Sir Wilfred Laurler, who went out
of power on the anti-reciprocity wave
that swept Canada last year, did not
part with his wisdom on giving up
his office. Speaking at a public din
ner in Ottawa, he referred to the
Panama 'canal bill and the British
complaint that it violates 'a treaty,
saying he did not doubt that
diplomacy would find a solution.. He
added that for 100 years all differ
ences between the United States and
Canada had been settled by arbitra
tion and that "a bad arbitration is
better than a war." " ; j
Then he sounded the keynote of
Canada's prosperous growth, saying: !
"In England they think of arma
ments and wars as in Canada we
think of railroads and public works."
The Dominion has little occasion to
take part in the affairs of the world,
and Is thus enabled to give all of its
governmental, energy to matters at
home. Row well this has been done
Is proven by some of its accomplish
ments. Laurier was working on this
line in his advocacy of reciprocity
when he was swept out of office on
a " wave of combined ..torylsm and
Jingoism, ,; . '. v V ' v Z
. His message at present is broader
than Canada's dominion; it may well
he heeded by all the powers of the
world. Giving attention to'rsJlroads
and public works, rather than to
wars and armaments, means growth
rather . than destruction. . And , this
was another of President Tail's big
Education "and Beg-ging.
Under this heading the current
number, of he. World's Work throws
out some suggestive thoughts about
the irreconcilable conflict in the con
junction in the college president of
the direction of the students' educa
tion and the begging of donations to
the endowment ' '
To do good work, it is explained,
a college must have more money
than its students pay, and ' must
make up this difference by private
gifts or public subventions. Theoret
ically, the state universities have
the right economic bash that edu
cation is a public function for which
the' state must furnish the funds
yet even in states which proceed on
this theory, the university president
as a rule has to wrestle with legisla
tures holding the puree strings and
devote toward getting appropria
tions time and energy which should
be centered in educational work. The
tendency is more pronounced in state
institutions than in others to place
the responsibility for financial and
business management separately, and
leave the head of the institution
more free to grapple with the prob
lems touching discipline and general
culture. . The writer quoted' fears,
however, that the noticeable gain of
our colleges and universities in
financial strength, physical equip'
ment and the number of subjects
taught, is at the loss of intellectual
and mora power, by which be doubt
less means thoroughness of training.
It may be fairly questioned, we
believe, whether this loss is not
relative rather than absolute, lndl
eating merely that the physical ex
pansion of our colleges and universi
ties has gone on of late at a faster
pace than the educational progress
The need of a better balancing be
tween the two Is plainly real, and
opens up a far-reaching problem
calling for the most careful consid
eration, not only of our educators,
but of all concerned in the success of
Our institutions of higher learning.
know. We have not the art galleries
of London, Paris, Berlin or Rome,
but no artist ever imagined1 more of
beauty than belongs to the eyes of
one who rides from Omaha to 8an
Francisco. No bluer sky is ever
studded with brighter stars than
that which canopies the empire from
the Missouri to the coast. No more
rugged grandeur of heaped up gran
ite, of dashing waters, of wide
spreading valleys, of everlasting
snows and never melting glaciers,
can be found anywhere than are of-j
fered In the western mountains of
the United States. The wonders of
Yellowstone, Tosemite, and Glacier
National parks are wonders of the
world, and have not their counter
part in all creation. The fjords of
Alaska equal those of Norway,
Switzerland's Alps are duplicated
many times over in the Rockies and
the Sierras, and so the list might be
extended.
If patriotism does not appeal to
those who annually hurry away; to
Europe, curiosity might, if it were
ever properly aroused.' At all events,
"See America first" ought to be the
ambition of every American.

'. . Responsibility in Divorce.
An eastern judge, whose experi
ence in the matter of granting' di
vorces has been sufficiently extensive
to warrant his speaking as . with
authority, suggests in a magazine ar
ticle that the plaintiff In all divorce
cases Is at least negatively responsi
ble for the condition that has led to
the suit. He analyzes his proposi
tion thoroughly, end with such a
show of logic as must convince any
that Jie is not merely exploiting a
theory.
V Following the average divorce case
back, to its origin, he finds it starts
in something the aggrieved party
might "have avoided by just a little
care 'at the right time. Where of
fending habits are complained of, he
finds that they generally existed be
fore marriage, and with the full
knowledge of the partner who later
complains of theoffense. In such
eases he points out that unhappiness,
if not divorce, Is almost sure to fol
low,' In all these cases the plaintiff
is to blame for having entered' upon
a marriage contract knowing of the
faults that later lead to separation.
In these cases the judge suggests
that lovers either settle the matter
before wedding, or readjust their
prejudices after. ,
The judge also calls attention to
what he believes to be supported by
facts, that divorce is less frequent
among the intellectually trainea
classes than among those who are
less well educated. And this not be
cause the educated man or woman
shrinks from divorce hut because
they are better fitted to adjust their
habits and Ukes and dislikes one to
the other's.
Last of all, and perhaps as com
forting as any of his other con
elusions, this Judge does not see the
total wreck of our institutions as a
result of the divorce Custom's
growth, i

LI5COLN AS A TRAVELER
Trek of
Indiana
the Family from
to Illinois.
(New ; York World. ) .
The route taken by the Lincoln family
in removing from Indiana to Illinois In
1A30 has been officially determined by act
of the Illinois legislature, and the state
historical society Is , preparing to mark
It with monuments. The route led across
the Wabash river at.Vincenne. through
Lawrencevllle, Parts and Shelbyville to
Decatur. Abraham LIneolni was twenty
one years old at the time.
The trek of this humble family through
the prairies of the middle west possesses
the sentimental interest that attaches
to everything relating to Lincoln. Thanks
to, the spirit which fosters the identifica
tion and preservation of all historical
landmarks, it will henceforth serve the
uses of an automobile "run." But a re
flection prompted by the charting of the
route is as to how little of a traveler
Lincoln was.
As a youth he went down the Missis
sippi to New Orleans and there witnessed
the sale of the slave girl which inspired
his hatred of slavery. He cme east to
make his Cooper Union addrees, and
again to be Inaugurated, and he visited
some of the Virginia, battle fields during
the war and Gettysburg after. But he
knew nothing of the great west beyond
thf Mississippi, nothing of New England
except the few cities in which he spoke
following his New York address, and
but little of the south;"
All the traveling Lincoln did in his Hf-.
time ' hardly ' equalled the mileage of-
single campaign itinerary of later presi
dents. He lived before the "swing around
the circle" had been originated, befor
the days of "traveling presidents" with
government vessels and private cars at
thetiv disposal before even the "summer
capital" at the seashore had been estab
lished. ......

A little more tired at close of day; ,,
A little less anxious to have our way;
A little less ready to scold and blame.'
A little more care for a brother's name;
And so we are nearinx the Journey s ena
Where time and eternity meet'and blend.
' ' .1
A little less care for bonds and rold.
A little more zest In the days of old,
A broader view and saner mind,
And a little more love for alt mankind;
And so we are faring a-down the way
That leads to the gates of a better day:'
A little more love for the friends of youth,
A little less zei for established trutn, ,
A little more charity In our views,
A 1'ttle less thirst for the dally news;
And so we are folding out tents away
And passing In silence at close of day.
A little more leisure to sit and dream,
A little more real the things unseen,
A little nearer to those ahead, . f
With visions of those long-loved and dead
And so we are going where all must go,
To the place the living may never know.
WHAT GKANDM0THES HAD.
Strickland GUliland In Leslie's.
Grandmother used to go and see
Folks who were sick, and make them tea
Of boneset and camomile,
And' fuss around the bed, and smile,
And not go till some neighbor came
That she was sure would do the same.
Unless they met her at the door
And put up an emphatic roar
About it's being smallpox, or ;
Some ailment to be watched for.
She never even stopped to ask
If, while about her loving task,
Herself might be endangered. ,;Ncv..
She hadn't read her Bible so. " " "

She'd only found the texts that said,
"Sick have ye tended," "hungry fed,";
And such old fashioned foolishness . '
Ere modern wisdom came to bless.
Now,' when we hear a neighbor's 111
We close the door and wash the sill y
With antiseptics, so we'll not
Get the disease the friend has got
Sometimes I think 'twere not so bad
Should we catch what grandmother had!
Our former - fellow townsman,
Henry D. Estabrook, has lost none
of his ability to coin striking
phrases by reason of removing from

leaders of the blind" Is a picturesque

Bramwall Booth succeeds his distin
guished father as head of the Salvation
Army. He receives the appointment by
virtue of a note left by the late General
Booth and opened after his death. There
is no conference of the leading officers,
much leas aa election by the rank and
file. Just the will of one man, accepted
without question. It amounts, of Course,
to rule by a dynasty; But "armies" have
frequently been ruled ahat way, and the
Salvation Army probably works rather
better that way than it would in a more
democratic fashion. The existence of this
autocracy In a democratic age Is a re
minder of the bewildering variety of In
