VOLUME 53 NO. 18,784
AN ISSUE OF GENERAL INSANITY.
DR. STUABT PATON, of Princeton University, has told the
Illinois Rotietj of Mental Hygiene: "Ererybody is afflicted
with incipient insanity; that any one may become insane
because we are all more or lete crazy."
The pertinence of this statement ia not to be avoided by any
deduction that if all men are more or leas crazy, then Dr. Paton
himself was half eras when ho said it. His argument is that we
tend to insanity with every loss of temper, bat become sane again
when we return to mental calmness and temperamental repose. He,
of course, supposes he was enjoying thai wisdom born of pence when
he propounded his dogma of general oraxinesa, and therefore claims
exemption from suspicion.
Suoh reasoning lays a flattering unctfon upon many a tore place
in New York's self-esteem. We are the calmest people on earth that
lire in a city. We hate tempers that neither trouble, deception, dis
comfort, false promises, nor long waiting, nor hope postponed, has
erer fretted into anger. With what patience and peace do we await
the abatement of manifold abuses and abominations. At this vory
time no less than seventeen inrestig&ting committee Federal, State
and .municipal are revealing new forma of scandal and wrong. Yet
we lose no temper. Dr. Paton says it is because we are sane. An
other philosophy might teach that it is because we are mad.
BROOKLYN WEATHER AND HOSPITALS.
THE REPORT to the Department of Health that nearly erery
hospital in Brooklyn is overcrowded, and that in some in
stances patients hare been forced to sleep on the floor, is n
sad sort of sequel to follow recent reports on the diminished death
rate and the decrease in nearly all kinds of disesee. That the com
munity as a whole is much healthier than ever is a good thing in
itself, but is no sufficient reason why it should be less careful of those
that have the misfortune to bo sick.
Tho report is the more depressing because it Is of Brooklyn the
tale is told. That borough has long made a specialty of being better
than other communities. Its chi nches, clubs and papers have been
ver earnest and eloquent in tailing how love should be shown to
' overy suffering creature.
It is urged by those having authority that blame for the evil
rests not on Brooklyn but on the weather. The winter has been
too mild, they say, and oases of pneumonia have become abnormally
frequent. The facts explain, but do not excuse. Brooklyn is not
responsible for her climate, but she is for her hospitals.
A WOMAN'S PLAN FOR POLICE REFORM.
ANEW PLAN and policy for police reform have been pre
sented to the Woman's City Club of Chicago, and as the
subject is one in which we are interested we may as well
give heed to it. It has the merit of suggesting a change in the atti
tude of society to the police rather than in that of the police to
society. The projector says: "We never speak to the police except
to complain, we never invite them socially to our homes, we force
them to associate mainly with people whom they wish to forgot.
We do not treat them well enough iwf the standards we demand
of them." ,
The principle is not now, but in its new application promises new
results. Why should it be only our troubles we tell to the police?
Why not be sociable with them? Why not relieve them from the
burden of associating with people they long to forget? Why not
uplift them socially to the standards we demand of them profes
These are questions to which the Women's City Club has ad

Moreover, by postponing the celebrstion for a year we may
attain some things that will enable u. to give our visitors and guestf
h more hospitable welcome end a more generous treatment. We
may by that time get the subway vexation, if not off our hands, at
least off our minds. We may also have a taxieab service that will
oeem more like a real service and less like a holdup. We may have
a short season, at least, when some of our main thoroughfares will
not be torn and disfigured. We may even have them clean, as the
Dutch keep theirs.
Finally, there is another reason for postponement: It is our way
and habit. We postpone all things, some for a day, some for so long
a time we forget when we started them, and others until we forgot
what we started them for.
