In the play that made Milton No

Joseph A. Holmes, director of the
Bureau of Mines operating undr tho

that since tho bureau began lis work
the death rata of miners per 1,000,
000 tons of coal mined has decreased
annually, that the production per

has steadily decreased. These results
are attributed to a combination of
causes, "the principal one of which
has foeea aiore efficient and effective

In support of a large philanthropy,
J400.00Q of the big Young Men's

esty makes them unwilling for tho

ways than widely-heralded publicity.
Yet many such givers conceal their
benevolence also for the additional
teeoon of self-pro taction. Net to dis
credit tholr good motive or word as
to ahrluklng from notoriety through
a seaso of modesty. It la quite well
known that many also give anony

for worthy philanthropies. Such

The corporation commission of Ok

mileage in Oklahoma Is 1,500, which
would make the whole Job cost $4.

In Other Lands
rtner Atitn konUm.
The most difficult of the many problems
which perplex the British ministry is to
keep the peace among tho diverse races
of the world-wide empire. The rebellious
tendencies of the Hindus In South Africa
and the dangerous outbreaks among the
native laborers In the Transvaal mines
arc symptoms of the prevailing race an
tagonisms. The African natives arc lit
tle short of slaves to the mine operators,
the cheapest of cheap labor, given a pit
tance in money and food and confined In
guarded compounds. The Hindus are
classed a llttlo above the native as . a
labor asset, but are more extensively
employed as farm hands. The latter
being citizens of the empire, insist on
equal rights with other British subjects.
But the whites, both Dutch and Anglo
Saxon, resist the demand for equal
rights, and the states as welt as the
union of states enacted laws restricting
their privileges an British subjects. These
odious laws and regulations are the
source of the outbreaks and strikes oc
casionally mentioned In the dispatches.
The South African case Is not an Iso
lated one. More than a year ago British
Columbia placed an embargo ou Hindu
laborers and forced those already on
land to "move on." In Australia sentl
tnent against Aslatlo Immigration is as
strong, probably stronger, than in Cali
fornia. So far the. home government has
done little than to smooth down the rag.
gcd edges of race antagonisms, which
are growing- more irritating every year.
Home Ilule "by- Consent."
Reports current for weeks past Indi
cate that serious efforts are being made
to adjust the differences of the Irish fac
tions respecting home rule, and thus se
cure the passage of that measure by both
chambers of the British Parliament Lord
Knolles, the shrewd diplomatic secretary
of the late King Edward. Is said to have
brought about an exchange of views be
tween responsible 'party leaders. Premier
Asquith Jiaa expressed a readiness to go
sUll further In. allaying what he regards
as the groundless fears of Ulster, chiefly
In administrative details, provided the
opposition agrees to the fundamental
principle of home rule. What the out
come will bo Is yet a matter of specu
latlon. The problem of compromise by
consent Is rendered difficult by reason
of tho radical defies of the. Carsonltes
and the equally determined attitude of
the Irish nationalists. It la becoming ap
parent, however, that the unionists are
not disposed to redeem the pledge of
suppprt given Ulster by Bonar Law, the
party leaders, and are ready for a com
promise that win facilitate the party's
escape from an impossible situation. A
compromise by consent Is the only way
the home rule measure may be altered
