cation" and in our ehort school year he points out there is danger of
cutting down the curriculum "to inch an extent there would not be
enough left to furnish Ibe mind with that knowledge every one should

school principals, he says their arguments would have greater weijjhl

Changes are not always improvements. It is fomelimes well to lislen
te the counsel of the actor as well aa to that of the critic.
THE LESSON OF THE NEW AMENDMENT.
AFTER a thirty-year campaign of education on the need of an
income tax as a part of our national fleet system, Tito
World has the gratification of finding the victory won and
the imposition of taxation on wealth, instead of on poverty, virtually
asaured. The process of education has been so thoroughly worked
ont during the long campaign that the new tax will be approved in
principle at least by almost universal consent. That mixOi is made
Evident by the vote on the amendment to the Constitution. After all
manner of delays and halts and hesitations ami evasions, the politi
i ians have had at last to obey the will of the people.
The success of tho advocates of the income tax over the hostility
of plutocracy, the sullen opposition of political bosses, nnd a deoi
ion of the Supreme Court, shows that to carry out any resolute will
of Um people there is no need for recall of judges, nor for referen
dunis, nor for any other erratic or revolutionary departure from our
established form of constitutional government. A slowly won success
s.'hicvcri by reason is better than a swift one attained through appeals
to passion and to prejudice. It is to be noted, moreover, that while
i liia is the first amendment ro the Constitution in forty three years,
lit will not be long before others follow. But none of them will be
revolutionary. They will amend not destroy.
CABBAGE, RICE AND CORN BEER.
THE announcement What the United Suites Qorernmenl ha.
brought before the courts a test case for the purpose of gel
ting a decision as to what is meant by '"beer" will interest
few people outside the breweries. We have long lines learned that
neither the Pure Food Board in drawing a bill, nor Congrats in de
bating it, nor tho President in considering it, nor the Secretary of
Agriculture in enforcing It, ever knows what pure food or drink
Bit the public will not be indifferent to the disclosure that miu'h of
the atuff that rs put up in bottles labelled "an exclusive malt and hop
brew" is made of cabbages, rice, sugar and various "corn products."
Fortunately the burning thirst for beer is still far from ns in
tprlngthne distant by six weeks, according to the sage who Invented
tha ground hog lore. Therefore there is time to consider before
aaking resolutions. But no man likes the fear that in quaffing a
tain of irut-hrown brew he may he putting a cabbage head on himself,
Neither doea the American like corn converted Into beer when it is
fittener for whiskey. And how will the Prohibitionist like the
thought that what he haa to often denounced as "demon drink" may
after all be but rice soup made thin?
THE LESSON OF THE HOUSTON HIPPODROME.
FROM reports made on the causes of Hie panic in the Houston
Hippodrome it appears the exits were not only legal, but were
quite adequate for purposes of safety under normal conditions.
The cause of the crush and disaster was that a crowd of people were
waiting at the doorway to enter as soon as the audience was dismissed.
When the panic crowd was rushing out, the expectant outsiders began
to force their way in. Then came the usual street mob gathering at
Vvery sort of excitement, and confusion was made worse.
It would appear from these facts that in all continuous perform
ance theatres or like places of amusement, where one audience waits
to enter as soon as another is dismissed, the entrance and the exit
should be by separate doorways. The innovation would probably not
entail any very heavy cost in comparison with the cost of the building.
There are some eight hundred places of entertainment of this kind
In the city. Many of thpm ere said to be in unsuiluble structures, but
til of them may be presumed to have met the requirement! of exist in-;
ordinances. Yet so long as one crowd tries to enter through the same
(door that another is leaving there is alwavs danger even if there be
no fire to start a panic.
