March of a Mighty Army.
. With the. excitement and turmoil
of a great industrial crisis, its an
ticipatory disturbance reaching front
one boundary, of the nation to the
other, and no spot being free from its
influence, folks have lost sight of the
approaching mobilization of one of
the mightiest armies ever assembled.
Millions on. millions of feet, more
than all the armed hosts of Europe
twice over, will set out. upon their
march with the coming of Tuesday.
- The - school children oi the United
States are again on 'their way to

sons that are to serve them all the

destiny awaits them,, what chance
may turn the channel of their activ
ity, .the 'school is the,-open door
through which they move to meet the
responsibilities of life that will come
to thenvlater on. The future of the
nation, of the race, itself lies with
these youngsters. They are the men
and women of tomorrow, and as they
think' arid act. the. world will be
shaped for their day. ' It is only for
u to -watch that they be deprived of
no advantage that will be helpful to
lliera in the days of their formation,
to the end that .they will eventually
come well prepared for the tasks
they are some day to assume. The
glory and the perpetuity of our free
uts'utulioni rest on the school house.
."xi- ' Social Justice. m.
What is social justice? The term has been ban-
died about for many years now and volumes have
been spoken and written concerning its meaning,
with the effect of confusing many and enlighten
ing but few. None who deeply studies conditions
will undertake to support the proposition that
social justice prevails now, or ever did prevail,
Some man has always been at a disadvantage, and
not through his own fault. Conditions justify the
assertion, though, that we are nearer today to a
realization of the square deal for all. This does
not mean that any one .of many Utopian dreamt
has come to pass, nor that an ideal has been at'
tained. It means that forces have to reacted upon
conditions that men vaguely feel if they do not
realize fully something of the obligation resting
upon. them to consider the other fellow. It does
not mean that the unrest is being stilled. The
man who is comfortable is inclined to agree with
.conditions that contribute to his situation, but un
der him and around him are others who are not
comfortable, and whose consequent dissatisfaction
is certain to disturb him.' Thus is the continua
tion of the turmoil made sure, to the end that
with each readjustment of social relations we are
coming a little cloter to the time when the world
will be a good place for all to live in. Through
thia unrest the race of man, has come up from
darkness toward the light, and by it will be led
on to the time when social justice will be a fact
and not a hope, In sorrow, and bitterness .msn
learnt hit tetton, but beyond the strife always
glows the light of that day ahead when "all men's
good is each man's aim." Then will humanity
know the full meaning of social justice,
, Amending the Ten Comandmenta.
Among proposition! announced for, consid
eration at the forthcoming convention of the
Protestant Episcopal church of the United States
ia one to amend the Ten Commandment!. Now,
don't get excited. It it not proposed to enact
further legislation along the line, to embody any
of the aphorisms colloquially referred to at being
extra tections of the Decalogue. The idea it to
shorten the commandments as they appear in the
prayer book or catechism, retaining only the order
and omitting the argument. A commission which
hat considered the matter will report that the
reasons for observance now embodied In the text
are no part of the divine command, and, therefore,
may well be eliminated in the interest of brevity.
' Following this to its logical end and applying
the result, we may relieve the Bible of a great
deal of itt bulk.' Historical chapters of great in
terest, poems of sublime majesty,, thousands of
word! of biography and many passages of con
troversy, and a considerable expanse of genealogy
may be cut out, because of containing no state
ment or essence of divine command. Such a
process would destroy the' fascination of the
Book of Bookt for the ttudent, who now finds
in itt pasaget a never-failing charm, and for the
devout it would be a calamity. At 'a basil of
faith and a source of inspiration, the Bible, in
itt present form, standi unexampled, and to add
to or detract therefrom may interest the etoteric
critict, but for the millions whote faith and hope
alike rest on its pattages tuch an effort would

'"' We are still to dance, finding in'' rhythmic
movement to the toundt of music avenues for
expression otlierwise dammed. . u it tne primi
tive instinct, we are told, and the asseveration Is
upheld by citations of human experience going
back at far at records and illustrations can be
traced. Does man feet elation or depression,
yield to the exaltation of religion, or yearn to
take dire toll of an enemy?;' In the dance he ex
hibits 'the impulse that fills his josom, and
through gyrations, genuflections, leaps and flops,
he relieves hit pent-up feelings and impresses be
holders with hit tincerity and devotion. Joy and
orrow, war and peace, tove and hatred, adora
tion and worship, all are made manifest by figures
or movements. Then the dance hat itt literature,
too,- and poetry and music contribute to h from
their plenitude. ,,J;:' "' --'rX
But modern man has found other means of
venting his inspirations, his mood J-and ideas, and
resorts to the dance mainly as a source of social
diversion. Interpretive dancing he leaves to ex
perts, who mildly pique him at they move with
flashing limbs and graceful gestures through
forms that may mean what the program lays, but
which usually impress the beholder with the

pended on the nymphs for patronage. Otherwise

convertation. :, ':.'. V- '.:''''
.Some comfort for the elderly and equal con
fusion for the young is found in the dictum of

ern" dance are performed.' Joban Strauss will

. ' ' Health Insurance for Workers,
The American Association for Labor Legisla
tion hat tackled the problem of securing health
Insurance for the multitude of unskilled workers.
As a means of arousing public interest and en
lightenment on the subject the association pub
lishes a summary of a study conducted by a na
tional committee of eminent sociologists and In
surance cxperti appointed four yeara ago.
The chief feature! of the expert ttudy are
embodied in a draft of a bill for a model law em
bracing what ia contidered by the committee at
belt of European lyttemt applicable to American
conditions. It provides for health inaurance for all
workers earning leu than $100 a month by joint
contributions from employers, employe! and the
state. The fundi are to be controlled by mutual
associations. Medical care and treatment are
provided for, together with cash benefits of two
thirds of wages payable for a maximum of twenty-six
weeks in a year. The model also includes
a small funeral benefit, maternity benefit and
medical care for the insured worker's family.
'; Considerable progress has been made in re
cent years through compensation in mitigating
the distress growing out of industrial accidents.
We still lag behind Europe in protecting toilers
against the hazards of sickness. But we are mov
ing in the right direction. Official records show
that $500,000,000 ia annually lost in wages due
to sickness, and the further fact that sickness is
sevenfold a greater cause of destitution than in
dustrial accidents, together constitute a powerful
argument for remedial measure'.

Just ten years ago, August 30, 1906,; Edward
Rointtcr. fnur.iier of The Bee and for thirty-
five yeara its editor, passed from this life. Ia

man and hit work, delivered at the funeral.
Dr. George L. Miller said:
"Mr. Rosewater was one of those transplanted
men from the old world. He was born ,in obscur
ity, reared in distress, and was necessarily a bread
winner when he landed, a stranger and alone, in
this great nation of opportunities, to make his
way as other men do in this world.
"It is an American trait that whenever we tee
any man, native or foreign born, who can rise out
of the struggles ot the world, who can aeprive
and deny himself, and fight his battle of life and
rise to distinction, we all take a common pride in
him, whether he be of American blood or any
other. So among the men I knew here forty
years ago, haa uprisen the figure of the diminutive,
energetic telegraph operator, without name, and
almost without habitation, coming into the midst
of this early life. What need I tell' you of that
career? I have known him, and I have had many
combata with him and my controversies were
very bitter; but it was through those very contro
versies that I learned to know that there was a
man in this community who had great capacity.
I meatured him with my own tape measure, and
I knew, to I dealt with him teriously in his later
newspaper life, and I met in him a man whom it
was greatly to ray interest to combat I de
veloped myself by coming in contact with an
ability superior to my own, and I soon saw that
here waa a man of great power, who was to be
reckoned witn in tnis community.
"While young statesmen are walking the
country and telling everybody about the new
discovery of war on corporations; while I con
tended against Edward Rosewater with all. my
might, against the principles and policies he ad
vocated for this new land, I wish to bear testi
mony that he was the pioneer who fought cor
porations from the start to the finish, and those
who appropriate the principle today, may trace it
oack to tne stand ne made tor it, I saw bit ca
pacity for affairs: I saw him rise m in the mMat
of the conflict with the foremost statesmen of
our country, of both parties, and holding them by
his powers, by his ability and capacity in grasping
great questions. I taw him mould presidents and
cabinets and congressmen aa though they were
children in his hands. Oh, my friends, a great
man has been called in this community) Popular
opinion buries all animosities today and over the
grave of Edward Rosewater they proclaim a great
man has gone.
. "The power of Mr. Rotewater as an editor It
would be hard to estimate. He was not the great-

originality ot this man, his great capacity in

anybody in vindication of his views."

WHEN MY SHIP COMES IN. j
Robert J. Burdens. . '. t
Somewhere, out on the blue sea tailing, j
Where the winds dance and' spin, i
Beyond tho reach of my eager hailing,
Over the breakers' din; -Out
where the dark storm clouds are lifting.
Out where tho blinding fog is drifting.
Out where the treacherous said is shifting
My ship cornea In.
O, I hare watched til! my eyes were aching.
Day after weary day; .
O I have hoped till my heart was break
ing While the long nights ebbed awavi
Could I but know where the waves had
Could I but knew what storms have1
Could I but know where tho winds had
lost her, ... . ; .
Out In the twilight gray!--,- O
But though tha storms her course have
Surely the port she'll win - 55
Never my faith In my ship has faltered,
I know she is coming in,
For through tho restless ways of her roam-
Through the mad rush of the' wild wave
Through the white crest oi. the blUowa

Swiftly she's coming In:
Shallows and deeps and rocks defying, . -
Bravely she's coming in. -
Precious the love she will bring to bless me.
Snowy the arms she will bring to carets me.
In the proud purple of kings she will dress
' me -
My ship that is coming In.
White In the sunshine her sails will be
See, where my ship comes In; '
At masthead and peak her colors streaming.
