"Far moro important than looking

Woods Hutchinson to bis Omaha
hearers, "seems to mo to bo the mat
ter of seeing that every child born
Into the world will have a fair and
square white roan's chance to get his
share in tho world before anybody's
child Is allowed to havo too much."
And In this Is much of force that
is overlooked by the ougqnlsts In
their enthusiasm for their cult. No
one Will oet up that thq human racg
has not made, or is not making,
progress. Tho law of natural selec
tion, disputed as It may be, has fur
nished much of support in tho very
fact that, despite tho apparent care
lessness of man, his coudltlon is
steadily improving. It may be in
this regard we are proving that other
law of Nature;
Ba careful of the type she seems,
Bo carries of the tingle life.
Man has grown In every way, re
gardless of any apparent neglect of
sclentlflo mating. But the further
argument of Dr. Hutchinson must be
also borne In mind. This means that
the child Is to be given a chance
growth is to be encouraged by proper
environment. Children must not he

Washington, whose anniversary
wo celebrate this month, continues to
inspire' as one whom, the offlco
sought and while this is truo, lt Is
equally true that Washington had
both the candor and the courage to
admit, at least upon one occasion
early In his career, that his ardor
for public service as such was not
wholly bereft of a feeling that the
laborer is worthy of his hire.
Young Washington had already
renderod sufficient military service
to prove his worth, even in his own
estimation, and whon tho stupid old

tho sturdy provincials to a rank In

Tho Idea has filled me with surprise,
for If you thlpk ma capable of holding a
commission that has nolther rank nor
emolument annexed tp lt, you must en
tertain a very contemptible estimation of
my weakness and believe me to be moro
empty than the cpmmlsslon Itself.
Washington was not put for tho
money or tho glory and yet ho waa

as ho earnod both tho money and the
glory, he would not cheapon himself

Those who know Samuel Gompers
well will marvel at tho spirit shown
by tho delegates to tho convention of
tho United Mlno Workers of America,
who cheered ono or their number as
ho uttered slanderous statements In
his attack on tho man who has so
long stood at the head of the Amer
ican labor movement, Those who do
not know him well will marvel that
a man such as he Is described as bo
ing will be pjected year after year to
his exalted position.

from tho pulpit of one of Seattle's
leading churches on thq day follow.
Ing thq nght on which he is do
scribed as sitting, "gloriously
drunk," at tho head of a table of
roystorers, Is In itself proof that
either Mr. Gompers was not In thq

wonderful recuperative powers. The
truth Is that Mr Gompers is attacked
because pf his sturdy advopacy of

Philadelphia Itecord: It Is Interesting to
note that the proposition to build a Prot
estant Episcopal cathedral in Phllar
delphja, which has been lately revived
after a rest of several years, has been
opposed by prominent clergymen and
laity, for a variety of reasons. Naturally
the great cost of suoh an Imposing
ecclesiastical edifice, In comparison with
the meager benefits to bo attained, fig
ures largely among the objections. There
are many ways In which tho millions
that would go into stone and mortar
oould produce greater and moro lasting
results. Mr. Francis A. Lewis, a well-
known churchman, touches upo.n a very
weak spot when he says: "The proper
compensation of the clergy Is the most
Important proposition fpr Immediate con
sideration, and It gets very little, because,
unlike a cathedral, It makes no appeal
to. the imagination. No man In any pro.
fesalop can do his work If he Ib under
constant financial strain. This )a the con
dition of too many of tho clergy, and It
Is not their fau)t" The Inadequate sal
aries paid to well-educated and refined
men, such as city .pastors, are suppoaod
to be, constitute almost a scandal.

Apd that myso)f am blind;
Yet gavo me In this tark estate,
To see tho good from 111:
Apd bndpg nature fast In fate

What conscience dictates to bo done,
Or warns mo not to dd,
This, teach me more than hell to shun,
That, moro than heaven pursue.

And deal damnation round the land .

Or aught Thy goodness lent.

To h'de the fault I scej
That mercy I tp others show,
That mercy show to me.

Since quickened hy Thy breath,

Through this day's llfo or death!
This day be bread and peace my lot:

And let Thy will ,be done. .
