The Bic-ht Kind of a Decision.
Judgo English Is to bo congratu
lated on the fact that his first Im
portant decision slnco his accession
to tho bench that denying auto
cratic powers to our governor
appointed election commissioner la
on the broad grounds of equality be
fore the law, and against discrimina
tion between citizens on account of
Tho facta in this particular case
stand out so plain, and the logic of
tho judge's ruling Is so unanswer
able, that persons reading the opinion
must bo amazed that anyone clothed
for tho time with a llttlo official
power should have assumed to dis
tort a law in the way the election
commissioner sought to do. Judge
English shows that under our new
Dertlllon system of registration the
voter's Bworn testimony Is taken
"when unchallenged as to all the es
sential qualifications as to his resi
dence, bis ago, the time bo has been
living in tho state, county utd city,
his occupation, his conjugal condi
tion, and oveh as to whether natu
ralized or not but that credence at
once ceases tho moment ho declares
himself a naturalized citizen.
Of course, as The Doe has from tho
first shown, this outrageous ruling
by tho election commissioner was
merely tho outcropping of an antl
forelgn fooling sprung from tho Idea
that the forolgn-born citizen Is not
as good as an American-born citizen,
and thnt tho end Justifies the means
when it comes to disfranchising foreign-born
voters. Wo trust this de
cision by Judgo English will help our
oloctlon commissioner to realize that
our free American Institutions de
pend on a free and untrammeled bal
lot, and that to stop fraud does not
require wholesalo disfranchisement
of ono of tho best olqmenta of our
live Stock Hailing and the Tariff.
It Is generally agreed that tho
chief factor in the high cost of meat
Is not tho tariff, but failure of do
mestic production to keep pace with
consumption demand. A shortage
of 30 per cent In home output is now
reported. The new era on western
ranges, in tho first place, obstructed
growth of herds; tho general demand
for choico cuts, in tho second place,
Is depleting thom, taking the young
stock to tho market Instead of ma
turing It So tho call is persistent
for more livo stock raising and tho
effort has boon made by both tho
federal Agriculture department and
the stato agricultural schools to fos
Yet, now comes tho democratic
tariff bill with its free trade sched
ules to cduntoract these etfortB and
thwart them. But tho democrats
cry, "We must admit foreign moat to
force down prlcos at homo." Wo
must admit foreign meat, but for the
purpoeo of making good our own
shortage and thus bring tho supply
up to the domand, but freo trade in
tho end will hurt, not help, the situa
tion. Toko sheep, for Instance, as
an example, Sonator Catron of New
Mexico points out In a rocont speech
that under the last democratic (Wil
son-Gorman) tariff sheep went on
tho free list and tho number of our
snoop slumped in tho four years of
this law's operation from 62,000,000
That should give us an Idea of how
froa trade Is likely to affect the
problem of our diminishing domostio
supply of live stock.
An Automatic Regulator.
In view of the loud protest from
express companies against tho Inter
state Commorco commission's rate
reductions, some of which thoy con'
tond are noncompensatory, a few
comparisons betwoon express and
parcel post rates may be illuminat
ing. For Instance, on a one-pound
package Bhlppod from Chicago to
Omaha tho rate by express now is
25 cents; as proposed it would be
23 cents, and by parcel post it Is 8
cents. From Chicago to Denver the
express rates are respectively 30 and
24 cents, the parcel post rate 9 cents;
to San Francisco tho three rates are
30 and 30 and 12 cents, And these
ratios obtain generally as botween
Even without considering some of
tho alleged watered stock and huge
dividends of the oxpress companies,
It will be hard for them to show that
tho proposed reductions would be
non-compensatory compared with the
government's parcel post ratos. Par
cel post competition, as a matter ot
fact, will be the best possible auto
matic regulator of express rates. And
It Is thlB competition that express
companies must meet If they remain

NEW YORK CITY, Aug. 6,-To tho
Editor ot The Bee: In a letter signed
W. T., recently published In The Bee, It
Is asked what good has Infidelity done
for the world, what orphan has ir cher
ished? etc., and then W. T. says of In
fidels: "For what ultimate end do you
hope? Will yours be like that of Robert
Ingersoll when dying, who cried out,
'God forgive me'?" As a member of
Colonel Ingersoll's family, who was pres
ent at his death, I ask for space to say
that W. T.'a statement Is absolutely false
and If W. T. read the dally papers at tho
time ot Colonel Ingersoll's death ho
knows it to be false. Colonel Ingersoll
died as he had lived an agnostic. As to
W, T.'s question as to what orphan In
fidelity haa cherished It Is only neces
sary to mention one name, Stephen
Glrard, the Infidel, who did more for
orphans than any man who ever lived.
Why does W. T. hide his Identity behind
Initials? Is it because he knows that
many of his statements are positively
untrue? SUE M. FARRELU

attended you during Infancy, and many
of the services they performed for your
benefit were by no means agreeable and

your mother In the church, or with your
father In the lecture hall: It may be an

discover that men of superior endow

home, and that the happttet people are
those who ahun the worldly pleasure

fit only to pleas the common and vulgasJ

yourself free from the oppressive dic

sire no greater advancement In life than
to Imitate and flatter each other, and
whose selfish and narrow minds are con

caused by social disappointments and the
furious operations of anger and Jealousy.
By keeping yourself "unspotted from the
