Another instalment' of "Uncle Sam's Cook Hook," one of The Star's
many Saturday features, will he found in this issue. Already, in three
weeks, no doubt many of our readers are fatter of person and pocket
both from the publication. It may have been noticed that an esteemed
contemporary that can llnd nothing better than recipes for sundry
lollipop dishes for its household page, evinces jealousy of Uncle Sam,
Us & Co., judging by the sneering remarks on the national cookbook
it permits a dull contributor to make.
FEDERAL HEALTH JURISDICTION.
It is not improbable that Congress will before long extend the
scope of Federal activity in the matter of public health. President
Taft in a recent message asked for n special appropriation for the
prosecution of scientific study of cancer in italics, his purpose being
to increase our knowledge of the disease in man, so that, if possible,
means for checking its spread can be found. In this particular line of
cancer investigation there are already official agencies that can great
ly assist, the bureau of fisheries especially being in a position to fur
nish material for the laboratories of the experts it is proposed to em
ploy. A larger scheme was included in the message through the Pres
ident's reminder of his previous recommendation of the necessity of
a bureau of public health to which all such questions as this of cancer
research could be referred. While the President advocates merely a
bureau, Senator Owen has a bill pending to create a department of
health, the chief of which would have a seat in the cabinet. The fol
lowing remarks of the Philadelphia Public Ledger may be applied to
the war against tuberculosis as well as cancer, also to the matter of
the protection of our coasts from various pestilences for which the
necessity increases as our direct commerce with oriental and equa
torial countries grows :
A great deal of good work is already being done by the Bu
reau of Public Health and Marine Hospital Service, attached
to the Treasury Department, but the scope of that bureau
could be widened and its responsibilities increased with great
benefit to the nation. A vast amount of research is already
under way in connection with the cancer scourge, the grow
ing gravity of which is beginning to penetrate the conscious
ness of the general public, and the co-operation and guidance
of the government in the possible unification of effort and
the prevention of wasted energy would be an incalculable
' - gain to science. This is what is desired by the President, his
specific suggestion at this time being merely incidental to
the larger purpose.
WHERE DREAMERS RULE.
Contradicting the statement in dozens of papers that Milwaukee
is the first "large'' city in America to make the experiment of a So
cialist mayor, the New' Bedford Standard instances, as cities that will
not admit being "small," Brockton and Haverhill for two thaf'have
had Socialist mayors and have survived. More than that," the Stand
ard continues, "these cities have shown no marked disposition to have
them again. As in the cases of plutocratic or capitalistic mayors, and
in the case of Milwaukee now, there were plenty of promises in ad
vance to give these cities 'the besfadministration they ever had.' This
is one of the commonplaces of incoming municipal administrations,
and it proved as much of a commonplace with the Socialists in Brock
ton and in Haverhill as it has anywhere."
Quoting the old adage that trees are better known by their fruits
than by their roots, the Standard abides the close of their administra
tion for a decision on the value of Hhe promises that Mayor Seidel
and the Socialist Democrats made. "Municipal administration," it
'goes on to say, "is a somewhat practical affair, with some very decided
limitations and restrictions, growing out of the nature of things, as
dreamers are apt to learn when they are brought into contact with the
facts." It is stated that Mr. Seidel's official newspaper organ promis
ed the building of a municipal electric lighting plant, for every em
ploye of the city trades union wages and an eight-hour day, "and, so
far as practical, an accident insurance and sick benefit and an old
age pension ;" free textbooks and "penny lunches for the children of
the public schools where needed ;" a municipal slaughter house, an ice
plant and a coal and wood yard ; and, a little later, the public owner
ship of Avaterways, telephones and street car lines, and still later tlc
public ownership of mines and railways, and so on. "Very good," the
Staudard comments; "the country waits to see."

NOTICE TO CREDITORS.
Hawaii's recent quarantine troubles, at nilo and Honokaa, which
soon passed but news of which was given here only in enigmatic form
though gossip was active with wild rumors were promptly cabled
in detail and published in papers all over the(main.lnnd. It is about
time the out-of-date "understanding" that all unpleasant local news
should be suppressed here to avoid "hurting the country," should be
abolished. It goes abroad anyway, and, besides, the people ought
to be apprised of the facts of every present danger. As it is now the
public is disturbed, on every such occasion, by the circulation of ex
aggerated and false rumors. Publication of the plain news would
stop that sort of thing.
FOREIGN BAUBLES REJECTED.
A decided stand has been taken by the nouse committee on foreign
relations against the granting of permission to diplomatic and mili
tary and naval officers of the United States to accept decorations and
gifts from foreign governments. The Constitution forbids the accept
ance of such favors "without the consent of the Concress." and nre-
vious uongresses nave neon liberal, 111 more or less discreet ways,
with the consent. When gifts and insignia had accumulated in the
coffers of the State Department, an omnibus bill for their distribu
tion would be passed. It is a bill of this kind, sent down from the
Senate, which has bee;i blocked in the House as stated. "Viewed from
a high ethical ground," an exchange says, "there is an obvious impro
priety in the offer of reward by one government to the officials of an
other for the performance of their official functions, lmt tlm pustnm
abroad is so firmly established that such distinctions form the princi
pal rewards of public life, are the spur to zeal in every avenue of the
public service." Although the matter has thus come to be one of bar
gain, the United States government has no orders or distinctions at
the disposal of the executive, nence the acceptance of such favors
proves an embarrassment. Whereupon the paper already quoted con
a souvenir of the respect and confidence of foreiern powers with whom
his duty has brought him in contact, the fact that there can bo no cor
responding return by the authorities at Washington makes the re
'fu$al of- the. Congress to' authorize the acceptance not only reasonable,

Pittsburg, whoso civic rottenness has lately been exposed to the
world, may take the government by commission route for reform.
Its chamber of commerce is working for that end. In discussing this
news, the Philadelphia Public Ledger points out difficulties in the
way of having the commission form of city government adopted in
Pennsylvania, concluding with tho following apt and sensible re
marks applicable to cities everywhere:
There is no substitute for an alert and conscientious elec
torate, no hope of an honest and businesslike administration
of public affairs, unless tho voters are careful to see that they
are committed to honest and capable hands. Great things
nre claimed for the "commission" form of municipal govern
ment, but its trial is too recent and too sporadic to justify
any very confident judgment as to its superlative value.
Whatever virtues it may possess, and some of them have been
demonstrated, they will never bo proof against an apathetic
