UNCLH JOE'S DOCTRINE.
In n recent public speech aimed at
homo of his political enemies Speaker
Cannon said: "1'hls republic of oiiis,
Is not worth three hurrahs In tho ;
place tint bums with llio nnd brim
ktonc if ft has wlthlu its borders priv
ileged classes. Civilization should
'Spic.ul over nil alike." This Is bound
lundnmentnl philosophy sulphurously
Mr. C.inuou was directing his re
marks especially at Mr. (iompers and
(outondlng Hint tho labor lender do-'
hired lo give tr.tdo unionists tho
status of a privileged class. If that
ho bo, thoiu can bo no question Hint
Mr. liompors Is wrong. Tho labor
group, howover, doubtless would con
ledo tho correctness of tho genornl
principle laid down by Mr. C.iunou
nnd would nrguo thai what they seek
Is only equality befmo tho law and
not tin ndvautngo over tholr fellow
imcn who nio nut trado unionists.
It is encouraging to hear Speaker
Cannnir talking so vehemently
against tho existence of privileged
classes, it may bo of value to bo
ablo to recall to his mind this speech
torno tltno when powerful InterotlK
hook to gel through Mr. Ciunnu't) us
sistauco privileges placing them nt
un, advantage In comparison with tho
rest of tho world and at tho oxpeubn
.'of tho Industries of Hawaii.
POSTAL SAYINGS BANK FOB THE'
TIMED ONES. I
Somo opposition to tho proposition
to establish postal bnvlngs banks
cropped up nt tho convention of tl.o
American Hankers' Abbocliillon In
Donvor. Tho committee appointed lo
look Into tho subject reported unfav
orably upon it.
It is pointed out Hint last year llio
savings banks of tho country took
enro of J3,C00,O0O. with n loss of
only. $120,000., or tho barest fraction
of. ono por cent., "whoroas the pro
pose'd government rato of two per!
cent, would havo deprived tho depos-

ilois or nt least $50,000,000. In In
terest In the same jc.ir." 1'ault Is
a I? ii found with various provisions of
the bills brought before Congress,
one Mltirlsm being that the postal
ostein would centralize tho funds
just ns the Democratic platform
(barged that tho funds might ho
shipped to Wall Street although
the principal advocates of tho project,
notubly Postmaster General Meyer,
have declared It to be their wish and
purpose to have the deposits Lept ns
near homo ns possible.
The objectors seem to have over
luol.ed tho Important circumstance
that the Idea of establishing a postal
taxings hank system was proposed
(lileily for tho purpose of reaching
the people who cannot or will not de
posit their savings In existing banks.
Tho large amount of money annually
tent abroad for deposit In foreign
banks furnishes reason for believing
that this money, or some substantial
part of It, could be retained In this
country, where It Is needed and
where It could well bo kept In circu
lation. It has been predicted that tho
establishment of the Postal Savings
Hank would result In tho local de
posit of thousands of dollars now scot
to .Japan each year.
HIRAM MAXIM AND OUR PRE
PAREDNESS. Illrnm Maxim, whoso Inventions of
Implements of war have neon numcr
mis and noteworthy, showed himself
n master of haul truth In n recent
New Yorlc speech, in which ho de
clared that Americans wero obsessed
wltli a military (onceit that might
toino day prmo disastrous. Ho polnl
(d out the extent of our distant do
mains; llielr vulnerability; the fact
thut all our possible enemies, east
ward and westward, were arming, or
nlicndy are nrmed, In tho teeth; Hint!
wo have practUnlly no army: nnd
One acre nnd a half in choice fruit
trees. New house, modern in every
particular. This property will yield

ternatural ability to "whip nil cre

Mr. Maxim known. He Is ono of
us, though mostly ho lixes abroad,
where tho market for tho things ho
makes Is better than in his own coun
try. Ho comes homo to tnlk. Hut
If ho needed popularity in America
to help him in his business which
It is lucky for him ho docs not his
speeches wouldn't help him get It.
As a matter of fact, wo havo an
Inadequate navy; wo havo tho mock
ery of nn nrmy; nnd wo cannot do
better, because well, simply be
cuuso tho people enn't ngrco on tho
proper way to do better. If Hiram
Maxim knows anything about Ameri
can politics, ho knows this, accord
ing to the Philadelphia Times: that
the quickest way to loso tho support
of tho members of nny of the sub
committees of tho Committee on Ap
propriations is to tell tho truth out
There is an old story about an os
trich hiding Its' head in tho sand.
Hut It Is quite well understood that
you cannot make n lilt by telling that
story to an audience of ostriches.
THE TERRIBLE TOLL OF TUBERCU
LOSIS. "Consumption kills 1.1$, 000 in the
United States every year. Tho en
tlro cost of theso numerous cases is
not less than ouo billion dollars; tho
cost to other than tho victims not
less than four hundred nnd forty mil.
Hon dollars n year. A quarter of
these lives could ho saved by an In
vestment of SB, 500,000."
This is tho Judgment of Professor
Irving Fisher, expressed to the Inter
national Congress on Tuberculosis.
Kvory layman who has touched tho
problem knows how much basis ex
ists for thehc stupendous totals. They
iro awful, accusing, discreditable.
Hut It will not do merely to dwell
upon that slda of tho problem. Tho
men and women lost must not ho our
chief concern. Their sacrlflco was
woeful; their deaths should provo an
Inventive. Wo must turn our lives
to prevention. Wo havo the impres
sive testimony of a specialist, Dr.
Lawrcnco V. Flick, president of tho
Henry Plilpps Institute, of Philadel
phia. Ho bays:
"Lot us mnko tho people beo tho
bright bldo of this problem. Let us
fill them with a normal nnd Justi
fiable hope. Let them sco ,us wo sco
that even tho most advanced cases
tnn ho arrested; that all other cases
can bo thoroughly cured; that for
them and us tho discaso can bo whol
ly prevented by nutrition, hygiene,
nnd happiness, Let's preach tho doe
trlno of good, healthful, senslblo liv
ing, with cfccnpo from consumption
us Its rewiird nnd wo shall all bo
tho better for It."
UNDERFED SCHOOL CHILDREN
Chicago's City Council has ordered
nn Investigation as to underfed school
children. Alderman Hurt Is respon
sible for this ofnclal inquiry, nnd In
railing tho attention of tho Council
to tho situation ho cremnrked: "When

with u big problem."
If theso flgtues are even approxi
mately correct tho (oiidltlon nmotii;
tho tchool children of Chicago is cer
tainly ono calling for Investigation
and relief. Hut things mo not nl
wnjs ns bad ns! they are said to be.
Even stronger statements and big
ger statistics hne frequently hceiil
placed before the pooplo of Now York
ns to Its underfed school children and
almost uniformly they hnvo been
found to be greatly exaggerated,
Wbllo there nio nlivaj's some, pcr
linps many, enses In ocry largo city
where children nio undeifed, to tho
honor of American fatheihood and
motherhood theso cases are far more
rare than they nrc gcncinlly asserted
to be. Tho parents are far more lll.o
ly to bo underfed or hnlf-stnrved Ihnn
the children, for every parent worthy
tho name would sooner go hungry
than that his child should bo deprived
Hcsldes It is a fact which tender
hearted philanthropists sometimes
forget 'that the healthy ilillil, espe
cially ono that Is allowed to play
out of doors, Is almost nlw.in blessed
with un appetite and ready to rat
anything catnble. Still another con
sideration should not bo lost sight of.
In making self-respecting nnd self
supporting citizens It Is better that
a ihlld should occasionally go hun
gry rnthor than gel accustomed to
eating the broad of charity. Tho
principle can bo cuirled too far, but
thero Is probably less danger of this
than thero Is of affording aid which,
unless Judiciously ndmlulstcied, helps
to increaso tho evil it is intended to
