PASSING OF STEAM ENGINES.
Tho practical success which has fol
lowed tho ubo of tho internal combus
tlon engine In largo ships seems to
spell tho beginning of tho end of
etcain vessels. Recently tho head of a
company owning and operating more
than 70 steam vessels announced thnt
bis company would novor again build
a ship with steam aa tho motive pow
er. Tho advantages of tho Internal
combustion cnglno nro many. They
utilize a great .per cent of tho en
orgy of tho fuei. They are econom
ical In operation As one man ex
pressed it, all you have to do is to
start tho thing and then read a news
paper. Tho fuel can bo convenient
ly carried, no stokers aro required,
and Instead of tho engines becoming
overheated in tropical climates, trial
seems to show that they work better
tho hotter tho temperature. Tho pres
ent dilllculty seems to bo to get oil
at a reasonablo cost. Gasoline has
been rising steadily in price for somo
time. Tho supply of crude oil Is not
limitless by any means. There re
mains, of course, denatured alcohol,
which can 1 made from vcgotublo
matter, and It may In time becomo
tho great fuel of tho world. How
ever that may be, it is reasonably cer
tain thnt phlp owners during tho
next decado will turn to tho internal
combustion engine to solve many of
their difficulties.
A great many pooplo, fearful of tho
ultimate swamping of this country by
an influx of foreigners, look only at
tho statistics showing arrivals of Im
migrants, and forgot that tbero Is u

more than a million Individuals from
foreign ports landed in ports of tho
United States. Of those, however, ,
178,083 wcro classified as non-Immigrants,
which fact reveals tho nuin-

Milwaukee Evening Wisconsin. Hut

addition to tho population In tho

tract tho 222.2C2 representing immi
grants who departed from tho 838,
172 representing Immigrants who ar
rived. The result shows the gain in
population by immigration during tho
year to havo been 401,803, which Is
not alarming.

Jty that It Is evor ready to

manifestation of tho spirit that per

tlon of higher or lower, superior or
Infcrldr; it is a matter of duty of
"bushldo."
Certainly tho Japaneso woman Is
not regurded as n handmaid. Sho has
never been without her honorabio
pooltlon in tho body politic, nor xt&
tho value of her peculiar duties cvnr
beon slighted. Tho duties of bushldo
nro considered to bo binding upon tho
woman ns upon tho man, and inas
much aB bushldo means loyalty, so
tho woman nnint Utf j0vh1 to her hus

of a domestic sphcro which Ib as Im

Hut tho Samurai woman was not
conllnod wholly to tho household. Sho
wno oven tnught tho uso of arms,
thnt she might holp hor fathor or
her husband if tho need should arise,
and also that sho might defend hor
own honor. Japanese history has
many examples of women who be
came govornors, who lod military ex
peditions and who wero famous In
literature, art, education nnd relig
ion. Indeed, tho path to public honor
hns always beon open to tho Japaneso
woman, but It could bo attained only
by public Rorvlco. There was only
ono Btnndnrd of human vnlun, and that
was adhesion to tho national Interest.
Tho woman who porfornied her wholo
duty to tho homo was as worthy of
veneration an tho man who performed
hla wholo duty to tho army and to
tho country.
Thoro havo beon distinct feminine
periods in tlio history of Japan. Such
a period followed closely upon the in
troduction of Duddhlsm, which, with
its incitements to charity, did much
to stimuhito what may bo called a
feminist movement. Such literary
atnrs as Muracakl Shlkllou and Set
Shonngan not only wero tho most fa
mous authors of their time, hut their
vorks arc still classics. The educa
tion of women wbb zealously fostered,
and wo hoar of meetings at which
women compoted with ono another in
poetry, musio and art, Works of
charity became honorabio duties, and
wo heart much of the Empress Komel,
who distinguished horsolt by personal
service to lepers.
Dut tho feminist movement in Jnpan
has attained Its mnin successes since
tho restoration and (ho fall of tho
Shogunnto, Many Japaneso women
havo visited foreign countilos, re
ceived a foreign education and re
turned to tholr own couutry to piny
tho part of propagandists. The popu

litical suffrage to women finds its ad
vocates not only among women thorn

leaders of thought. Hut progress In
this direction Is likely to bo slow. -A

The Woman's unlvernlty of Japan
may bo taken as an expression of
Jnpaueso IdeaB upon tho question of
education for women. It was found
ed by Mr. Maruse, who began his
work thirty-six yenrs ago, and who
has been unresting In its advance
ment, Tho object of tho university la
to educnto women to fulfill their du
ties townrd tho state and society nnd
to becomo nn Influence In tho llfo of
the nation. Tho university contains
52 buildings, Including a libraiy of
11,000 volumes, a chemical laboratory
nnd a lecture hall.
me curriculum uegins witn a
kindergarten and there nro depart
ments for household selenco, lltora
turn, English and education, tlm flist
of these Including mathematics,
physics, ohemlslry nnd physiology.
Tho unlvorslty has SGS regular mem
bers. Ill associate members, 37 nd
vlaory members, 161 Junior members
and 11 honoiary members. Tho fol
lowing exhortntlon given to tho stu
dents by Mr. Maruso leaves nothing
to bo desired for Its nmplltudo and
Intent: "Tho students are enjoined
to learn, Inoffnceahly Impressed upon
their mlndB, thnt they are to mako It
their chlof aim and duty to cultivate
nnd develop to tho fullest extent all
tholr faculties as well as their wom
anly virtues, nnd to remain faithful
to tho university, never forgetting to
be and do good, study nnd to learn."
Much, of course, remnliiH to bo done
for tho advancement of women of
Japan, but much has alreadv been
dono. Jnpan has at least broken away
from the nnclont traditions of tho east

931. Thirty years later tho debt had
risen to $1,120,000,000. This Immenso
Increase was due mainly to the Chi
neso and Russian war, and a continu
ing expendlturo on a largo scale Is
necessitated by the national defense.
In the yenV 1908 the aimy and navy
cost $141,189,183. Uetween April 1,
1895, nnd March 1, 1909, the army cost
$370,085,088 and tho navy $313,443,440.
Tho national defense has cost a total
of $G89,423,523 within fourteen years
and this without counting the cost of
tho Hussian war. Corea, Formosa and
Manchuria havo demanded heavy
expenditures, A merchunt marina has
been established, many extensive pub
lic works undertaken, Including rail
ways, telegraphs and telephones, and
all theso things have been dono by n
country that contains only 20,000
square miles of arable soil.
Under such conditions it is easy to
believe that taxation Is tho question
of tho day in Jnpan nnd has, been so
for many years. Since the outbreak
of tho Hussian wnr tho land tax has
ranged from 3 per cent, to 17.5 per
cent. Tho tax on liquors ranges from
$5 per 40 gnllons up to n.lO'i per
40 gallons, according to tho percent
age of alcohol.
Then comes tho Income tax, which
is ni ranged upon a eoit of graduated
scale, Heforo tho war tho tax paid
by "Jurldlcat" persons wns 2i per
cent., but after tho war an additional
tax was levied equal to 80 per cent,
up to 400 per cent, of the ordinary
rate. An Incomo tax of 2 per cent,
was also levied on public loan funds
and company debentures. All other
persons not already assessed as above
pay a rate In proportion to tholr In
come. Heforo the war those with an
Income of 300 yon ($150) per annum
paid 1 per cent., and this Increased
according to the Incomo up to GV
per cent. Now the lowest Income pays
10 pur Vent, nnd tho highest 20.35 per
cent. Thero aro various .exceptions,
such as army and navy ofllcers while
engaged In wnr, widows, orphans, pen
slonorp, otc, Thoro Is nlso a tnx on
textiles, an excise duty on sugar, and
a substantial revenuo from tho post
office. Tho customs tariff also Is re
sponsible for a substantial Incomo
amounting to about $22,000,000 a year.
Mention should nlso be made of tho
stato monopolies of tobacco, salt nnd
camphor, worth about $25,000,000 n
year.i
Adachl Klnnosukl describes tho will
Ingnesa of tho Japanese peoplo to be
taxed and their uncomplaining re
sponso to demnudu thnt aro necessi
tated by tho good of the country. His
stntemont Is so remaikablo thnt It is
worthy of quotation. Ho says:
"In 1895 wo wont to wnr with China.
Our government wnnted money, and
wanted It badly. It let our peoplo know
about its needs In terms of war loans.
To tho first call tho peoplo answered
by putting up $25,000,000. The govern
nient wanted more, and on tho second
call It succeeded In getting from tho
peoplo $15,000,000111 nil $40,000,000.
Tho peoplo gavo this amount very
willingly. That fact was vory plain
on tho very fnco of It. It was widely
advertised nlso. Tho thing that was
not so woll known, especially ou.tBldo
of tho country, however, was that this
was all that tho peoplo could do at
tho time and a little more. Nine
asldo for that purpose. No matter
whothor tho engagement is for n year
ahoad, or tho noxt 15 minutes, a bell
lings whon that particular tlmo
cotuos nnd a card automatically drops
down heforo him.
Small Duslness Accounts.
Tho bills discounted by tho Hank of
Franco in 1910 Included 351,373 which
wero bolow tho value of 10 francs
($2), Flfty-flvo per cont. of tho total
of bills discounted wero for amounts
less than $V0.
l J
years later camo tho Russian war.
Onco more tho government talked to
the people in tho unpleasant languago
of government loans. Tho people of
Japan, however, apparently enjoyed
this bitter talk. Indeed they became
enthusiastic about It. Five times the
government talked to tho peoplo and
five times tho peoplo replied by giving
up altogether $300,000,000. In addition
to this amount wo raised about $000,
000,000 from foreign loans. As In tho
time of the Chinese war, tho willing
ness of tho people, their enthusiasm,
their appreciation of the honor of
emptying their pockctbooks for the
state wns tho same. Ours Is tho Spar
tan ldenl no consideration for tho in.
dividual, everything for the state.
What was not exactly tho samo was
that our peoplo had a very much hard
er time in putting up the $40,000,000
nt tho time of tho Chinese war than In
surrendering $300,000,000 at tho time
of the Hussian war."
The Japaneso government is now
carrying out a scheme for paying off
tho principal of tho national debt.
Prlmo Minister Katoura decided that
tho country must ralso at least $25,
if this can bo maintained Jnpan will
have paid her war debts In less than
thirty years.
Hut sho will not find the task an
easy one. She will havo to call again
upon a patriotism that has never tail
ed her, but that cannot perform tho
Impossible. It may be doubted if the
taxc3 can be pushed nny higher than
they aro now and oven tho most will
ing taxpayers cannot pay when they
do not possess. Tho annual taxation
now amounts to almost 10 yen ($8)
and this is a very largo sum Indeed
when wo remember that the average
earnings are very small. In 1901 an
estimate was made of tho monthly ex
penses of tho average Japanese family
of four, and It is probably fairly cor
rect at tho present time. It is as fol
lows: Yen
House rent 0.75
Rico 3 25
ruel and light (Ml
VcBCtal)le3 0 60
FlBll 0C0
Soy ami mist 023
Tobacco 0,25
Until 0 20
Iln money 0 00
Hair cutting, etc 0.18
Sundries 2.37
The monthly Income of this samo
family was estimated at 8.22 yen,
leaving a deficit of 1.1G yen. Wages
may have increased somewhat since
the war, but there can bo no doubt
thnt the cost of living also has in
creased. An ofllcial report since tho
war gives tho following as tho mean
wages of workmen In Japan:
I
Yen per day (1 Yen equal to 50 cents cold)
Yen
Urlcklayers OfiO
Printers 0 53
Silversmiths; 0.45
Masons 0.50
Carpenters 0.70
Shoemakers '. 0 55
BlnekumlthB 0 45
Weaver .. 0 38
Monthly wages In Tokyo are approx
imately as follows:
Yen
Snlco distillers 7.00
Men servants 3 3J
Maid servants 2.32
Silkworm breeders 9 00
Haw slllt weavers 6 55
I'nrm laborers 3 33
Millard says In his "Far Easter
Question" that sevoral persons whom
ho has questioned estimate the av
erage earnings of tho averago Jap
anese family of four In the lower
rlnsBPS at 100 yen ($80) annually, as
suming that tho children are old
enough to work. None placed tho fig
ure lilghor than 200 yen annual In
come. Out of this amount tho averago
Japanese pays 40 per cent, in taxes.
That is a very high proportion, but
tho fiscal authorities seem to havo no
doubt that It can be maintained, and
probably even raised.
It sceuiB Impossible to economize
except by a reduction of the expend
iture for nrmnmonts, and thero seems
to bo llttlo chanco for, that. Arma
ments on their present' scale aro con
sidered to bo absolutely necessary to
tho preservation of tho nattonal llfo,
and as a Japanese writer recently re
marked: "Of what uso Is it to econo
mize the nation's finances nt the cost
of nntlonnl destruction?"
In 1907 there were 2,230 banks In
Japan, with a total capitalization of
G79,G2S,220 yell nnd which showed a
balance In deposits of 1.S30.G93.270
yen. Their enrnlngs In 1900 wero 208,
415,599 yen und they paid dividends at
tho rato of 9.G per cent.

When n man builds a houffethoro
is f no factor that often is overlooked
by him.
Ho sometimes rails to realize that
ho not only is under certain obliga
tions to himself and his family, but he
Is also under a deep obligation to tho
community in which ho purposes to
build.
For instance, a man has no moral
right to buy a lot In a community of
fine houses and place thereon nn nr
chltectural monstrosity, or a house
whose freakish design will detract
from the neighborhood.
Tho desire ofhome owners In every
neighborhood Is to have tho houses
that are built even better than those
already thero. In other words, pro
gresslveness is tho watchword in home
building as in all other things.
A man cannot do a more foolhardy
thing than to build a dry goodo box

TERMS FOR STENOGRAPHER
Art of Shorthand Writing Has Been
and I Known by a variety of
Names.
Possibly not one In 100 of Now
York's numerous "koy tappers" knowB
that tho art of shorthand writing is
known by other names than "stenog
raphy," "Thachygraphy" Is only one of
them, Its Bccond part, of course, comes
from tho samo root as tho latter end
of "stenography" that Is, from tho
Greek "grapho," moaning to write.
"Tnchy" is derived from the Greek
"tachy," meaning swift; so only the
shorthand writer who has the ability
to take down rapid speech and tran
scribe It quickly has tho right to call
herself or himself a "tachygraphor."
(The "ch" sound Ib like that of "k.")
"Stenography," comes from "grapho"
combined wlta "stenos," which means
"narrow" In Greek. So a "stenog
rapher" Is either a narrow writer,
or she or ho practices "narrow writ
ing." Not so many years ago wo heard a
good deal about "phonography" as a
namo for shorthand writing, but the
term seems to have gone out of uso.
It comes from that samo useful root
"grapho," combined with "phonos."
Tho latter word means "sound," bo
that a phonographer la ono who
writes down sound aa he hears It.
Tho phonograph Is, of courso, an In
strument for writing or recording
Bound.
Then thoro aro "brachygraphy"
stoganography" and "logogrnphy" aB
oJier names for what we genorally
cU stenography. In the order given,
they aro derived from "grapho" com
bined with "brachys," meaning
"short," "steganos," meaning "cov
ored," "secret" (a stenographer Is ono
who writes In cryptic or mysterious
writing, not to bo read by the unlnl
tlate) and "logos," meaning speech.
