Has the disruption of the Wilson cabinet
t.nly begun, or la it all OTer? "I do not believe
that there will be any further reslKnatlons from
the cabinet," Mr. Bryan la reported aa saying,
"and I hope there will be none." The additional
expression of "hope" on the part of Mr. Bryan,
however, would Indicate a fear that his "belief"
ir.ay; not be well founded.
While the change In the state portfolio is
not the first In the Wilson administration, it
ia the first from the Insido because the McRey
nolds promotion from the attorney generalship
to the supreme bench was at the president's own
instance. Previous experience has shown the
Instability of a cabinet after It is once broken
by Internal differences or by successful attack.
The retirement of one cabinet member under
such circumstances Is naturally calculated to
stimulate efforts to "get" the next one who seems
least strongly Intrenched. The same forces that
have been belittling Mr. Bryan have been simi
larly opposing Secretary Daniels, who will doubt
less feel an Increase of pressure from now on.
The next shell-fire would have been directed
more at Secretary McAdoo, but for the fact that
his newly acquired family relationship has made
him the most Impregnable of all the occupants
of the cabinet trenches.
Mr, Bryan may "believe" there will be no
lurther reslKnatlons, and may "hope" there will
be none, but It will be surprising if President
Wilson finishes his term with as many of his
original cabinet around him aa he haa now.
King- Cotton in Good Health.
Much worry was felt In this country last fall
ever the condition1 of King Ct tton. 8ome of his
friends thought he was going Into a very quick
decline, and a great deal of solicitude was ex
pressed as to his situation. Various panaceas,
such as "buy a bale" and "use cotton instead of
silk," were proposed, and some of the subjects
of the stricken monarch did a great deal of hys
terical agitating In hla behalf. Now comes a
report from the Department of Commerce, and
rhows that more bales of cotton were used by
the mills of the United Slates In May, 1916, thsn
for the corresponding month of 1914; more
spindles were running during May thsn last
year, and the factories had 400,000 bales more
qn hand than they had a year ago. Exports of
cotton are only 800,000 bales less for the ten
months ending with May. 1915, than for the pre
vious year. The loss Is due entirely to stoppage
of shipments to Germany. Great Britain has
taken more by 300,000 bales, Italy by nearly
600,000, and other countries by 1,300,000, so
that the falling off In direct shipment to Ger
many and France haa been nearly compensated
for. Increased activity In home manufacture
and the lessened acreage planted for the year
will aurely reduce the surplus stock from last
year's bumper crop, and old King Cottunmay
throw away the rrutrhes and stand on hla own
feet again, along with King Corn and King

Measuring- the Drift to the Professions.
The drift toward the professions which haa
long been obvious comes in for exact measure
ment In the report of the president of the
Carnegie Foundation who furnishes a compila
tion showing population ratio of physicians,
clergymen and lawyers in this country by
decades, which will probably disturb some pre
The total number of persona in these pro
fessional classes has grown from 214,604 In
1880. to 414,108 In 1910, but still not much
sater than the total number of Inhabitants. If
reduced to a ratio the Increase Is onl& from 428
tc- each one hundred thousand population In
1880 up to 4 60 to each one hundred thousand
population In 1910. For the physicians the
proportion has remained virtually uniform for
thirty years, and during the last two decades
the number of ministers has also exhibited
small variation. The number of lawyers, on the
other hand, grew more rapidly than the popu
lation between 18S0 and 1900, yet during the
last decade increased only one-third as fast, be
ing 7 per cent increase in the number of lawyers
Stain st 21 per rent of the entire population.
But these figures. Interesting and auggestlve
as they are, do not measure the professional
drift accurately because we have added many
new professions such, for example, aa electrical,
sanitary and concrete construction engineers,
charity workers and survey experts. Instructors
ic new lines of education which must be ranked
with the old professions. President Prltchett
interprets the greater comparative stability on
the parts of physicians and clergymen as com
pared with lawyers "by the fart that young
men rarely enter either of these professions
without a strong sense of vocation. Their num
ber is, therefore, less dependent on changes and
standards, or upon economic factors, aa in the
case of lawyers."
What the Carnegie Foundation la trying to
do Is to raise the general professional standards,
end to exact better preparation a very proper
purpose yet lieb! to be misconstrued as an
effort to make it harder to enter professional
life in order to limit the competition. Inas
much aa auccess in the practice of a profession
must continue to determine continuance in it,
we still get back to the law of supply and de
cs n d to regulate distribution of young men
Into professional channels the eame as Into
other avenues of livelihood.
Illinois and the Marriage Laws.
Governor Dunne has Juat signed a bill that
oeclarea void all marriages not ia conformity
with the Illinois law, no matter in what state
they may be performed. It is extremely proba
ble that by this action the governor and the law
makers of Illinois have prepared the way for a
good deal of trouble and some Interesting litiga
tion. Marriage Is an institution In which the
public is much concerned, for its civil as well as
for its religious aspects. It Is most important,
as effecting the social condition of offspring,
the descent of property, and other factora la
modern life, and fox, these reaaona the suffi
ciency of the contract between husband and wife
abould be definitely determined. The legal re
quirements of marriage vary In different ststes.
and the right of the Illinois legislature to pre
scribe what sort of msrrlsge is legal and valid
In other ststes may well be questioned. This

Inventor of Submarine
Bnrtoa 9. steadrtok ia World's Work
ON At'tJL'ST 13, li14, two weeka after the outbreak
of the Kuropean war, there died, In Newark,
N. J., the man whore llfeerork, probably more than
that of any other man of hla time, promleea to revo
lutionise naval warfare and to cauae ft readjustment
in the arret flshting force and historic Influence
known aa era power. The newspapers, busy record
ing the Invasion of Belgium and the war preparations
of Ens-land, dismissed his death with a paragraph or
two. The dead man was John P. Holland, and ho
will become Immortal aa the Inventor of the modern
With the exception of the submarine, Hollnrid
had only one abiding enthusiasm. He wsa an ardent
Irish patriot: hla one desire was to see Ireland fre c.J
from Rngllsh rule and made an Independent republic.
Hla two ambitions supplemented ea h other. In c in
structing his first submarine, Holland alined at one
result: the liberation of Ireland from English rule.
Born In County Clare, In IM2, Holland s youth wee
passed amid many of tha most attrrln scenes In the
nineteenth century Irish movement. He pased his
early years In a riot of absentee landlordism,
evictions, and tenant disturbance; antl-Engllah senti
ment, therefore, waa hla earliest Inheritance. A boy
of inquiring and Industrious mind, with a particular
leaning toward mathematlca and science, he received
sn excellent rudimentary education enough to
qualify aa a lay teacher In a Christian Brothers'
school. It was while teaching In such a school that
his mind first turned toward submarines. In 1V2
when Holland was 20 years old, the Monitor fought
the Merrlmac. Echoes of the famous emrasemept
reached the quiet North Monastery at Cork where
Holland waa teaching. The circumstance dlacournged
him. since tt seemed to Indicate a continuance of
British naval power. The event aisnifled, as the
youthful Holland reasoned, that the Iron clad was
the warship of the future; England, equipped with a,
fleet of auch vessels, would absolutely fasten lta naval
power upon the world. That meant the postponement
of the cauae nearest Holland's heart that of Irlsn
freedom. Was there any way to destroy auch a fleet?
Holland had read Jules Verne: he alao had heard of
several attempts, notably those of the Americans,
Pevld Buahnell and Robert Fulton, to build a aub
marlne boat. It was only auch a boat, he believed,
that could successfully challenge England's naval
power. In his solitary room In this Irlah monastery
Holland worked over pinna; he actually believed,
greatly to the amuaement of his clerical associates,
that he had solved the problem of under-water wsr
fare. Holland tried, even then, to get backing, but
no one listened to the crasy boy.
In 173 he came to Paterson, Tn'. J., as a teacher
In St. John's Parochial school. Again subraai-lnea
occupied hla mind more completely 4han the educa
tional needs of his chsrgea. And now the opportunity
seemed fairly to have arrived. The Kenlan excitement
had reached Its height. The Fenlnn Brotherhood was
a secret organisation of the most rlitant Irish na
tionalists. Had It not been for the American civil
war. Indeed, the Fenian movement would probably
have sained little headway.
Irlah Patriots In America, mostly poor working
men and servant gtrls, had contributed their pennies
and dlmea to a collection known aa the Skirmishing
Fund Money Intended to be used for military op
erations against England. Holland now laid his sub
marine Idea before the trustees, who had about
In the treasury. They appointed a special committee
of three John J. Breslln, who rescued James Stephens,
the Fenian leader, from Richmond prison In VKZ.
Thomas F. Bourke, who had once been sentenced to
be hanged for high treason, end John Pevoy, who had
served five years In prison for his patriotic activities
and who Is now the editor of the Gaelic American
In New York, a paper which still preaches rabid
antagonism to England and violently advocates the
German cstiso In the present war.
This committee of three decided to use the Skirm
ishing fund to finance Holland's submarine. Holland
had to build two boats, however, before he got one
that fairly embodied hla Ideas. The first failed be
cause of faulty construction; the machinery was placed
ao awkwardly that the veasel lay unevenly In tho
water, ths nose alwaya resting aomewhat higher than
the atern. 'This submarine, however, demonstrated
the correctness of the principles at stake, precisely
as had the unaucceasful boat of a few years before.
It sank and rose easily, stayed under the water at the
position desired, the operator had no difficulty In
breathing, and the compressed air chambers worked
esactly as the Inventor hsd foreseen. The practice
Irishmen were so encouraged that they decided to
build a new boat, which would correct all 'the faults
of the old one. This second vessel was a complete
success. All submarines up to that time had sunk
en sn even keel., sn agonising process that took ten
or fifteen minutes time enough for an enemy's shot
to send It to the bottom. But Holland's boat really
dove heed first taking only a few seconds tn the pro
And now for several months Holland kept the
people on the waters around New York entertained
with his experiments. The Inventor had no difficulty
In operating in all the waters about New York: hla
boat handled easily, deftly, sad safely, the only trou
ble being, aa alwaya, with the engine. The news
papers, which devoted columns to his under-water
voyages, dubbed the vessel the Fenian Ram, a name
mors picturesque thsn descriptive, sa it was not a
ram at alt, but a torpedo bost.
Though Holland continued experimenting, the
world heard little more of his submarine until 1S9.
Meanwhile mechanicians in all countries, especially
the United Btatee and Franca, had worked at the
problem and produced many boats, moat of them un
satiafartory. In IBM, the United States advertised tor
bids for a submarine to be built at the government's
expense. Msny plana were suhmltted; when the boat
waa aelected tt waa discovered that the Inventor was
Holland, of tha almost forgotten old Fenian Ram.
Holland obtained the contract; and the Plunger, now
tied to a dock at New Suffolk, I I., was the result.
And now began Holland's protracted struggles with
government officials snd other professional people who
Insisted on "Improving" his specifications.
Holland, disgusted with the Interference of out
siders, made one request to his new company; that
ha be permitted to construct one boat exclusively ou
hla own plana and under hta own personal super
vision. Ha waa willing, to let the question of success
or failure be decided by thla one teat His company
consented and the Hclland, representing hla Ideaa, waa
constructed at the Crescent shlpyarda at Elisabeth,
N. J.. In 1898- Thla veasel la probably the moat im
portant warahtp ever constructed alnce the beginning
of time. When It waa completed, tha submarine ques
tion, which had agitated naval experts for a hundred
years, was settled. The submarine waa no longer a
fad. a toy, a crasy Idea of amateurish inventors; It
became. In a moment, one of the most terrible engines
of practical warfare ever devised.
The boat wsa only fifty feet long; it carried only
one torpedo tube; and It amased everybody with tha
deftnesa with which It aalled. In mobility It aeemed
almost a thing alive: in diving skill, Holland himself
said, he had taken the porpoise aa hla model. Thia
rapidity of submersion, as already noted, was the
quality which Holland regarded aa Important above
all others; speed and cruising radius were desirable,
but the ability to come to the surface quickly, take
obeervatlona. and drop below the waves before tht
enemy could train a gun waa the prime eaaential to
success. And this the Holland had In amsalng degree.
It could rise to tha surface and disappear again (n
five aeconda. lta navigator bad abaolute control over
the little ship. So successful did the triala prove that
the United States government viewed tha submarine
with some apprehension. Holland offered to take it
Into Santiago harbor and blow up the ApanlHh fleet
something he probably could have done. Had the war
lasted very long. Holland's boat would probably bave
played an Important role.

used to write dally to "William at Wssh

MCOOK, Neb., June I. To the Edi
tor of The Bee: In my dally perusal
of The Bee I have lately been giving a
glance to the correspondence column and
have come to expect something worth
reading there from time to time. In
the interesta of good work, I want to
pay my respects to a communication.
dated June 7fl entitled, "Knowing Too
Much." The author, by algnlng his ar
ticle, "Nameless," stayed In the dark
along with everything- he said. Hin hasy
views on "business" ethics, or Indeed, any
ethics, need clarifying In . the Interests
of the real article and of his own equili
brium. He saya he knew where his pros
pective customers could get the desired
work done for nothing. He therefore
felt bound either to do the work for
nothing or to tell where It could be ao
bud. He fjld the latter, received tl enks
and remained In a dased condition as to
whether he should kick himself or plume
himself. As nearly as I can tall he has
been doing both.
Let ua reason for the brother. You
will notice that he didn't choose to do the
work for nothing, Instinctively he shrank
from thst thing condemned by nature
snd by man the violation of the law of
compensation, ef balance, of reciprocity.
He could not . suppose his customer
needed charity for he expected to pay
for the work. Tet, he insulted him by
suggesting thst he would probably pre
fer to accept free service. That mean
suggestion from such a respectable
source looked good to the customer and
ha "went to tt." "Nameless" then com-
plains that he "got It In the neck," for
obeying what he calls higher ethics
than "business ethics." "It Is to laugh.'"
Like all mere tasters and surface think
ers he walks around tho perfectly ob
vious thing and loses himself In a maze
cf. confusion. His line of thought and
action ss he encountered the occurrences
related by him should have been as fol
lows: When he lesrned that his com
petitor was offering to give servloes for
nothing to all comers be should have
seen thst it wss not philanthropy, for
that can only exist In the presence of
recognised need and accompanying lack'
of power to provide. Hence he should
have looked for an ulterior motive, and
the merest glance would have sufficed.
He should then hsve held himself pre
pared to expose the same whenever the
matter came up unavoidably in tho course
of business. When Ids prospective cus
tomer presented himself and desired to
receive any psy for the services, "Name
less'' ahould have taken the work and
lodged a fair and reascnabla charge for
It, knowing that no charity waa offered
by his competitor nor asked by his cus
tomer, nor waa In place on Ills own
part. That action would have wrought
no ill to anyman, nor violated any
rule of business or other ethics.
Here is the whole law: "Do good al
ways and only, but do it In nature's or
der, vis; first, do good to youraelf In
compliance with the ft rat law of being.
Second, do good to thoae of your house
held. Third, do good to the neighbor.
Fourth, to all mankind. . Do only good."
The ethtca of business differ only In
one point, vis: That reciprocity (com
pensation) is secured by specific pgree
ment. while In personal and general In
tercourse, good la done to evident need
and brtnga lta own recompense of Joy;
"' It is .more blessed to give than to re
ceive.' " Let "Nameless" get tome
ideala that he understands and then, as
he saya, atlck to them.
