The principal actors in the early his
tory of America, which Bostonlans say
,wa made exclusively within the con
fines of New England, were ministers
or men closely connected with religious
bodies and who were first distinguished
by their obstinate adherence to a dis
senting creed. There are able men In
the ministry today. But the ministe
rial mind Is not the type we, as a peo
ple, most admire. It Is the day of the
Inventor, the manager, the combiner.
' The minister is the good man he al
ways has been; but he is not the fig
ure on the horizon he used to be. If
there is a brilliant boy in the flock the
father and mother do not have visions
of seeing him in a pulpit or in a college
chair. It Is, alas! he bay who seems
to lack ability to get along that the
family with relief selects for the pul
pit and sends to the theological semin
ary. In his inaugural address on as
suming the presidency of Johns Hop
kins university, President Remsen
wondered If the best brains of the"
country got Into universities. After
considering the subject somewhat In
definitely for a few moments, he hint
ed that, the constructive, creative, en
ergetic, appreciative man and type was
not found in the faculties of the
Bchools of this country.
It Is easier to criticise than to do.
This country has been surveyed
bridged, built, wired, and criss-crossed
with railroad tracks by men of unlim
Itable Initiative, possessing a some
times rude, but a compelling, Irreslst
able force. And It Is the men .who
have built this country, who have In
vented the telegraph, the reaping ma
chine, the telephone, the sewing ma
chine. It Is the men who have laid the
Atlantic cable, organized and built the
railroads, and organized large manu
facturing and distributing Institutions
Vhat(,young America and all his rela-
lions most revere and respect and wish
jto Imitate. It Is a material Ideal per
haps. Foreign criticism of our universities
is based on this very defect which
President Remsen hinted at. Ameri
can scholarship Is not constructive,
creative. It is a matter of learning.
Morse, Howe, HoCormick, Bell, Field.
Morgan and hundreds cf other Ameri
cans who have given progress a push
so vigorous that the world has seen
the car move, were and are self-made
men. whose very eagerness and haste
to be at work drove them out of school
into crowded, strenuous life.
But If the rewards of college profes
sorship careers were to be Increased
there is little doubt that -the effect
would be as apparent as It is In Ger
many, where the salaries of profes
sors are largest and their social posi
tions most distinguished. After all
there are very few igreat men in any
profession or caHtag and it is ques
tionable if in the 'world of basiness or
the mechanical industries, they do. not
do just as iHttca.feod.as they weuld In
a professor's chair or in a pulpit. From
either one of these positions the power
must be piped to the plant. The pow
er supplied by a great inventor to this
ar that department of activity Is prac
tical and imminent because he is in
touch with life and his acquaintance
with it is practical rather than the
oretical. When President Remsen or
Professor Hugo Munsterberg, wail
about the non-productiveness of Amer
ican scholarship they ignore the In
comparably superior productiveness of
Riveting of boilers and the like is
new stone almost entirely by compress
ed air hammer, which strikes 1500
times a minute .
