tioa by a State court of the Nebraska common
law to a corporation en-aged in interstate com
merce was np&eld. That was the point .decided,
and Judge Parker knows that nat judges say
apart from the exact point derided is not "the
law of the land,** as he sententiously says his
restatement of the opinion i«.
Moreover, eren If we assure that the tnited
State* court* would themselves apply the com
mon taw. and not merely uphold its application
in the State courts to Interstate commerc-al
transactions, which was the only point deter
mined by the case, however much mure Jus
tice Brewer's dicta may «nifKe«t. even such ap
plication would by no means' "afford I com
plete legal remedy against monopolies." Sen
ator Kaox shows that, though Che United .States
<-ourt» may apply the rates of tbe common law.
in the absence of federal statutes, * :: " L ' private

duTerect--es in a lawsuit, the common iv" «an
not prevent persons from making comb: nation?
and monopolies In restraint «-.f interstate coaa
merce, and that the Catted States cannot pro
ceed against them at common law. He declares
that the statement in the Presidents letter II
exactly correct, and that, while the common
law is* indeed applied as in the case cited by
Judge Parker, "an asreement in restraint or
"trade Is not and never was unlawful at coin
"mon law in any such sense as that the n?ree
•ment could be nulliaed by public authority, or
-that persons not parties to it could sustain an
-action apalu»t it for damage. It takes stat
"ate law to confer such remedies." Even in
England the common law will not do what
Indie Parker originally said it was adequate
to. Lord Cromptou says: -No action at corn
"mon law will lie. or ever has lain. against
"any individual or individuals for entering Into
•a contract merely because it Is la restraint of
trade." Also, "that contra cri in restraint of
"trade are not Illegal in any ■*••• except That
"the lew will not enforce them."
It looks as If Judge Parker with his common
law proposition had started out to I* in har
mony with the New-York platform's demand
for State regulation of corporations chartered
by the State, yet did not dare openly avow him
self to be ■ protector of tbe trusts and against
efficient national regulation. When it was
shown that his common law regulation meant
no adequate federal regulation at all be seized
upon some phrases to save himself, and the
only result is an exhibition of the distinguished
jurist citing a court decision which is not per
tinent, like the merest "smart" practitioner, and
referring to 3 oase which does not mean -what
he evidently intended tbe people to think it

topic. Secretary Hay reminds his bearers of
the peace loving policy of tbe greatest Presi

has "been "no solution of continuity iv the senti

"this day." and declares that "no Presidents in
"our history have been so faithful and to etti
"cient as the last two in the cause of arbitra
"tion and of every peaceful settlement of differ
"ences." In demonstration of this hist propo
sition be cites President Roosevelt's action to
saving the Tribunal at The Hague from neglect
and death by sending to it our dispute with
Mexico and the Anglo-German dispute with
Venezuela, in the reduction of o\:r army to tbe
minimum, in the recommendation and urging to
enactment of a law looking to an understanding
among the powers for the mitigation of The
eviis of war at sea. in the now pending negotia
tions far arbitration treaties with European

World's Peace Congress at The Ha sue.

Secretary llay's words rang true and •arried
conviction, •«>- doubt not, to every immediate
hearer, as they shook] to evwy reader in the
kind, when he said that the American govern
ment shared to tbt* utmost the spirit uud pur
pose in which the Peace Congress had met, and
added the authoritative assurance that '"tin
"President has no thought of departing from
"the traditions bequeathed to us by the gre.it
"soldiers and statesmen of our early history*'—
traditions which the speaker Lad already re
<ralled from Washington, with his first [ah to
see war banished from the earth, to Lincoln,
with his fervent prayer that the scourge might
speedily puss away. The band which this na
tion extends to others is nor. as Mr. BchnrE
wishes to suggest, a menacing fist, but the ojw-n
hand at friendship.
THE XFW J A PAS'.
A brief article in "The Monthly It-view." of

"The New Japan," would attract attention at
any time, but Is of more than ordinary interest
at present as being a brief of Japan'! case a

financier of the croup, the Alexander Hamilton
of the new Japan, for which, by tin- aid of
Count Soyeshima as translator, he speaks in
the pages ..." "The. Berstw." The count, lv the
■rat place, feels it necessary to review the cir
cumstances which brought about the closing of
Japan against foreigners for two centuries, and
then to state why it was reopened half a cen
tury ago upon the Initiative of the United
Suites. The Japanese, he asserts, while striv
ing hard to preserve their national character
istics, have always been disposed to mingle
with other races, and he points out that the
"Tamato Mingotu." as the Japanese call their
race, is "an agglomeration of several tribes, or
"races, which came from the west and the
"uoaiL and the north," and then-fore by ih-lr
national character were inclined to ao race
prejudice. "Moreover, our national character."

justified, after her experience witU Portn-new
missionaries two centuries ago. in closing her
doors to the foreigner until she opened them
when Commodore Ferry? expedition convinced
her that all foreigners were not alike and ttat
it would he to -er advantage to avail herself
of the fruits of Western civilization. In defence
of the character of the Japanese a* St. Francis
Xavier found them, he quotes from ■ letter of
Xavier himself to the Christian Society of Goa,
in which he says: "The nation with which we
"have to deal here surpasses la goodness any
"of the nations ever discovered. They are of a
"kindly disposition, wonderfully desirous of
•honor, which is placed abore everything else,
"They listen with great aridity to discourses

This is a high tribute, and that It was de
served Ii amply attested by other evidence and,
indeed, by Japanese character as it is known to
the Western world to-day. It is with pardon

THE SEPTEMBER SURPLUS.
The September Treasury statement plays
havoc with one Democratic campaign industry.
The "hit or miss" economists who have been in
sisting that the current year would show some
fabulous deficit like $140,000,000 will be com
pelled to revise their "pipe dream" calculations.
The lion. Henry G. Daris will have to get a
new accountant and write a postscript to his
grotesquely blundering and misleading letter of
acceptance. "The New- York World" may also
feel like ■ ailing some of the fearsome proph
ecies it has been busing on the Treasury's show
ing for July and August.
For those two months— the first two of the
fiscal year— the deficit was about $24.<hj0,000.
Mr Davis, "The World" and other high Demo
cratic authorities have been naively multiplyine
that deceit by six and predicting a deficit for
the year of from $140,000,000 •■ $1 44.000. 000.
According to thoir arithmetic. September should
har- returned a deficit of $12,000,000: but, with
a singular disregard cf kindergarten logic. gap
tember refused to show a deficit at all. It per
verse'y and irrationally Minced a surplus of
$3^896.083. "The New- York Times" calls this a
"slight oxeesi* of receipts." and "The World"
also dismisses It as a "Blight surplus." Km what
a jar does this unwarranted "slight excess"
give to the I»avis 'Touch an<l ready" met. nf
calculating deficits: For the first quarter, in
stead of a predicted deficit of 138,000.00 ft, we
have an actual deficit of $1T.5.%4.2-*«1. Like Th<»

The most encouraging feature of the Septem
bar report i« the gnin it shows In reeWr-ts over
September, Z903.: For many mouths Treasury
receipts have been declining n little as com
pared with receipts la years preceding. For
September, however, the total— s4C,r,44.«; s vl— is
about $1,500,000 greater than that for Septem
ber .1 year ago. Expenditures— $40.44!* 000— are
ouly about $J.'*x),(MK> higher. So that the lutl
atu-e of la«t year between receipts and expend!
tures-gravely disturbed* in July and August
has been prartimMy restored in September*
ri>< :il operations. Receipts for the quarter are
still short, however. Last year for The thre#
months they reached ?143,4:»4.0T'J. This year
they are $1.".5.0::4,4<;2. The disparity in expendi

This inerwise Las gone almost entirely t.» the
army and navy. War Department expenditures
have risen from 134,742.080 to $41,714
nearly $7.tMK).OfiO. The cost of the navy has In
creased from .S23,COi,(HS to $:U.«U*.147-near!r
$8,000,000. The "economy" In national expendi
ture* demanded by Democratic "keynoters"
must therefore one If it la to coma at all— at
the sacrifice of one or both of these services
Democratic Representatives and Senators vote
in every Congress to increase the naval estab
lishment, and then go out on the stump and rail
at the "extravagance" which they have sanc
tioned. But they the candor to confess
then- own part in swelling our naval expendi
tures, as they lack the courage to propose an
abandonment of the nation's purpose to create
a creditable and efficient navy. In the name
way they vaguely clamor for a smaller and less
'•"•fly army, yet shrink from proposing any
definite measure of reduction, because they know
-and the country knows— that false economies
in time of peace are avenged by monumental
v\ aste in time of war.
The operations of the first quarter oaTer no
fair test for gauging the balance for th». full
fiscal year. A deficit Is indicated, but not a
very serious one. On September's showir'
however, the kindergarten school of alarmists
is entitle*! to a long and well earned rest
