' ' From Congress to the Courts.
The natural course for the eight-hour law that
is to set aside the threatened railroad strike is
from congress to the courts, and the" railroad
presidents frankly state their intention to speed
it along that route. This is a proper enough pro
ceeding, for the measure involves principles that
are vital to the social and industrial life of the
nations. Not alone are the railroads concerned
in the proposed legislation, but every form of
industry must be affected by it, and through it all
society. Therefore the importance of early es
tablishment of the power of congress to enact
laws fixing hours for employment, and to that
extent setting up wage scales can' be understood.
So far as the shorter workday is concerned, it
will ultimately be established. The one thing
to determine is whether it is to be achieved by
statutory enactment or by the readjustment of
industrial processes. . The passage of the law
may avert the strike, but it will not settle the
Superb Stage Management
Mr. Wilson and his advisers are showing a
capacity for stage management that any theater
director might well envy. In the handling of the
controversy between the railroad men and man
agers, not s point of dramatic effect has been
overlooked, and now we are to see the melo
dramatic Just as Hawkshaw the Detective arose
to carry the message, so will Woodrow the Will
ing be present to sign the bill. Not at the White
House, however. That were too time and com
monplace a background for so thrilling a scene.
The stage will be set far more in accordance with
the spirit of the play that is about to end.
On the grass of Shadow Lawn, under the
spreading trees, and aurrounded by the admiring
hosts of embattled democracy, waiting to deliver
his set speech, the president will be approached by
a messenger, hastening at top speed from the halls
of congress, and bearing the newly passed law,
the ink not yet dry on its pages, Then, with that
dignity 'that has marked his every action, and
simplicity that would have made Jefferson's heart
swell with especial emotion, Mr. Wilson will at
tach his signature and the act of congress will be
come law. The last drop of political stimulant
will have been squeezed from a serious Industrial
crisis, and administration ctacquers will shout the
praiaes of the president, while the people will
wonder what might have happened if an election
Had not been impending.
David Belasco has something to learn in the
art of stage direction, and he may well study pro
ceedings at Shadow Lawn today.
Royalty In tht European War.
Unauthenticated reports come from Athens
that King Constantine of Greece has abdicated
his throne, and that his son has succeeded, the
younger man being favorably disposed to the
Entente Allies, whose pressure is surely forcing
Greece into the war. Along with thia is a further
report that a revolution has broken out in Greece.
Without regard for the reliability of the informa
tion, the truth of which may be established later,
the circumstance again calls attention to the
change that has come since the beginning of the
strife. . . : -. '
It may have been' true in the beginning that
the war was one of the rulers; then it was freely
predicted that it meant an end to royalty and
"divine right" rule. Developments support the
conclusion that the war has become on of the
people, and has gone beyond the control of kings
and cabinets. No European monarch cart now
approach hit subjects. with a proposal for peace
that does not embody- something of permanent
advantage to them. The national instinct re
ferred to by Jonescu in connection with Rou
manian action has been aroused amongst all the
nations, and it must be reckoned with not only,
now but at the conclusion of any peace that may
be established, f The Berlin congress of 1878,
when Russia's adjuatment with Turkey was set
aside, is looked to as the chief source of the pres
ent conflict and blunders then made in council
are now being rectified on battlefields. '
. King Constantine's expressed desire to remain
neutral, whether or not supported by his sense of
obligation to his brother-in-law, tne German em
peror, has been overruled by his people, and he
is not alone in thia predicament. Royalty is not
the dominant factor in the world war today,
. . Underwood Law and Revenue,
Congress put aside an emergency revenue
measure to deal with the railroad situation, but
must before adjournment resume consideration of
means for securing income to meet the more than
a billion and a half of dollars appropriated by this
session. Promises of retrenchment and reform in
expenditures have been kept by making each suc
ceeding year larger disbursements, each congress
for four years establishing a new high mark in
extravagance. The further fact must be kept in
mind that when the Wilson administration came
into power the treasury held a surplus of $85,
000,000. On last Tuesday, the deficit for the cur
rent fiscal year, beginning with July 1, was $31,
858,638, accumulating at the rate of more than a
million dollars a day.
' This deficit is due to the failure of the Under
wood tariff law to produce the revenue, even when
supplemented by the unusual and special taxes
that have been levied, such as the income tax,
the stamp tax and the like. Imports have in
creased half a billion in value and customs reve
nue has decreased more than $100,000,000 for the
year under the Underwood tariff law. This neces
sitates emergency laws to produce $205,000,000 in
addition to the sale of $130,000,000 of bonds.
The unescapable fact is that the democratic
"tariff for revenue" law has been a flat failure.
Imports have increased and income has decreased.
This is part of the record on which the democratic
administration is to be tried, and for a defense to
which it sets up that the president "has kept-us
out of war."
An attempt to equalise the income tax down
ward brought the wrath of King1 Caucus on Sen
ator Underwood. The idea of the Alabama sen
atoi has some merit, but lacked tactical oppor
tunism. A federal taxing scheme which would
touch the purses of 200,000 voters at thia critical
time is unthinkable. Some other time.
Industrious ward heelers are said to have voted
the names of three bulldogs at the recent prima
ries at Wheeling, W. Vs. As the names were
attached to live dogs the gravestone eminence of
Philadelphia heelers remains untarnished.

In due course the architect arrived with elab

merchant prince.
"Now, the only thing remaining, Mr. Gilstock,"
he concluded, "is the drawing room. Where shall
we put the drawing room?"
But Mr, Giltstock laid a firm hand on the desk.
"Look here, my boy, I draw the line some
where. You've made plant for a smoking room,
when I don't smoke; a music room, when I can't
even play a mouth organ; a nursery, when I ain't
fot a nurse, a pantry, when I don't pant. But

LooniU on Light and Heat.
Gibbon, Neb., Aug. 2$. To the Ed
itor of The Bee: I would Ilka apace
in The Be to reply to William
Smith's last article In Tha Bee of the
J 3d lnat. He stated In ht pre
vious article. In The Bee of the
tth fnst, that the slanting raya of the
sun were colder than the direct raya
because they "had so much longer
path through our atmosphere, which
made them colder. Now what tem
perature could these rays have held
when they reached our atmosphere
after having passed through SS.OOO,
000 miles of Interstellar apace at 27 J
degree! below seroT So It la plainly
the province of our atmosphere to
warm those rays instead of cooling
them. I am glad to aee that he agrees
with me that there Is no difference in
temperature between our perihelion
and aphelion distances. Re - states
that our sun te composed of gas a lit
tle more dense than water, and that
other auna are composed of gaa about
the tenuity of our atmoaphere, or
lighter. Now, I cannot conceive of
either liquid or gaa of that consist
ence, whether composed of atoms,
molecules or particles, that can be
made to produce heat by friction or
agitation. If It could be done, our
atmosphere (composed of gases), as
well as the water In our lakes and
oceans, should be made hot when ag
itated by violent atorms. Scientists
formerly believed the sun's heat was
produced by combination until com
mon sense taught Its absurdity, then,
like a drowning man catching at a
straw, they took up the theory of
auch intense heat by friction, but it la
like "Jumping out of the frying pan
Into tha flre.'T
I did not presume the sun was In
habitable, as It would have to supply
Ita own light and heat and would be
too hot under foot or too cold over
head to sustain life, either animal or
plant And the same rule would hold
good for the outer planets, which Mr.
Smith claims are aelf-heated. They
must have light and heat from out
side or else be uninhabitable, and,
therefore, useless. .
Mr. Smith states that the color of
the different suns Indicate their tem
perature. Will he explain the ruddy
appearance of the planet Mars, our
nearest outside neighbor and nearly
flfty million miles further from tbe
aun than we are, whose red light is
plainly seen by the - naked eye and
whose regular illnes are supposed to
be canals, and' whose white spots at
the poles, evidently snow and ice,
which increaae to aome 12 desrees
across when winter conditions pre
vail at either pole, and nearly or
quite disappear during the summer
solstice. It la evidently not a hot
planet but has about the same tem
perature as we have. Probably the
same cause that gives Mara its red
color also gives color to the various
suns. , . 1
Probably, like many of your read
ers, I am not well enough posted in
spectrum analysis to discuss those
points intelligently, so will pass them,
but think I can make my contentions
plain by the following illustration,
not considering the outside planets
at present: We may consider our
planet placed on the surface of a
sphere of apace 186,000,000 miles in
dinmeter, with the sun at its center.
Now, according to Mr. Smith's theory,
the whole surface of that vast sphere
must continually receive the, same
degree of light and heat that we do,
and its whole interior space must also
receive the same degree of light and
heat at Ita surface, but must gradu
ally Increaae in Intensity as It ap
proaches the sun, and when near the
sun must be hot enough to vaporise
the most refractory metals.
Now, If our moon and Mercury,
and possibly Venus, are. uninhabita
ble on account of their long diurnal
revolution, all. that vast store of light
and heat Is wasted except the inflni
tlsimal amount that I our planet
usea. But let us consider the outer
planet and extend the sphere in all
directions to the distance of the orbit
of Neptune, two and three-fourths
billion miles from the sun, and all
that great sphere to be lighted and
heated continually as above stated,
and I think the absurdity of the
theory will be apparent to all. But
let us look at the other theory. Now,
we all know that electricity is all
around us, and with proper appli
ance can be called Into Instantaneous
use anywhere on earth. - Now, what
is more reasonable than to suppose
that our planetary bodies, revolving
around the sun with the sun acting
aa a great dynamo, are furnishing
light and heat of uniform tempera
ture to all the planetary bodies in our
solar aystem regardless of their dis
tance from the sun or the tempera
ture of intervening space, and with
out any waste of energy?
Now, thanking The Bee and Wil
liam Smith of Bellevue college for
the valuable aaaiatance they have ren
dered me In getting thia before the
public, I am willing to let the' public
Judge aa to which of the two theories
is the more reasonable.
