its leading sugar-men to Washington to fight for
the sugar tariff. Oue of the greatest arguments
f for the tariff has been that it provided a revenue
absolutely necessary for Uncle Sam's business.
Xow comes the income tax, also providing many
millions of revenue. One argument for the sugar
tariff is thus dealt a severe blow. We need otic

the other reasons, with the reason cf a life-or-death

his car to hande'Lthe rush-hour traffic.
Either the posts must be moved further from!
the tracks or the running-boards kept free, and
the latter alternative means that more cars must
somehow be put in operation.
IS PUBLIC OPINION SELFISH?
Judge Humphreys, in a rather bitter inter
view yesterday on the Inter-Island controversy,
said that "public opinion is always selfish. It
wants its mails sent, its persons and freight
transported, and it does not care whether it is
served by slaves or men, so long as it is served."
As to public opinion being always selfish, it
is sufficient to point to the Inter-Island troubles
a few months ago. At that time, it is safe to say,
public opinion sided with the. striking masters
and mates, though it did not agree 'with all of the
methods they took to enforce their demands. The
present situation is quite different, and the pub-

recognized authority in the field of
sociology, he was called to a profes

the chaplain of the university with a
parish. of 6000 students, as well as be
