Tbe most important suggestion made
i,v Boroofh Pweldenl McAneay'i coar*.
mlfwioo la thai the height of building*
in Fifth avenue be restricted. Buch a
limitation ni*? the ose of property baa
been held la other jurisdictions to be a
proper exercise of the police power and
probably wonld be wo regarded by the
?courts lu thia state. If any obstacle I ?
carrying it oui exists it will probably be

tbe conris Seal ntate rabies In the
business parts of New York arc due '?>
tlie skyacraa?. and a law barring iky
sera per? from any ?tree, might ordlna?
rlly be expected t<> reduce the value of
lota there. This doc- no! seem, DO'S
ever, to be the secesaary effect on
Fifth ?renne real esta-te values of the
i reposed limitation. Restriction in reel
detiee sections la dne rdagle family
houses often has the effect of preserving
and enhancing values. \ restriction on
Fifth avenue such a- to proposed might
h.iv.- a similar effect. II would tend to
preserve ami advertise the character ot
ih. street _- the great show place of tbe
city, where tine retail shops existed. And
by assuring lo each real estate OWMf
protection from an overshadowing sVy
Hcraper II might give value t?t property
like thai which it receives In u residence
Delgbborbood through the exclusion of
buildings of a lype considered undesb
able.
i be cine, reason heretofore against
attempting 10 define tbe uses lo which a
street could be pul has been the constanl
migration of business. Hotels, theatres
ami shop, have moved steadily uptown.
while hi their wake bare come office
buildings, factories and lofts. To have
attempted restrictions apon tbe charac?
ter of (wildings in a given aelghborh.I
would have been to Interfere aritb the

CRIME LISTS.
Commissioner Waldo's Met of making
public each week a list of robberies in
this eify is ,a good one. It should be
done daily, in fact, as he Is said to l?o
| thinking of doing if the weekly an?
I nounccmeats "prove successful." The
S publie is as iuii'-h entitled to such infor?
mation and warning from th" Police D*>
[tartinent as ??t is to ,. daily list of fitvs
from the Fire Department, and the par
pns?> in Ihe tWO Cases Is abOOt the same.
Vet it will he n distinctly new departure
In the Pollee Department Buch Infor?
mation never has hen obtainable with
any degree of regularity before. Even
the lisls of stnleii articles seul mit lo
pawnbrokers by the police ?Department
bave been held as "private and ronfl
dentiai" at many ?periods
It may nut lie much comfort to the
householder who mourns his ?nss to see
?hat loss listed fur ihe public the next
day. Sui h publicity, though, may cause
! his neighbor to exercise can. against the
i plunderers where Without it he would
?have gone carelessly on his way. Al
j present the public has no accurate know i
? eiL'e whether it is comparatively safe ?r
ou tbe er./-i of a "crime wave." It reads
??f tin- arres! of a suspected criminal
without knowing bow many other crimes
went unpunished. Ft has lohg had u
shrewd suspicion Ilia! such knowledge
was withheld heenusi- it would nut pro?
duce any excess of admiration and affec?
tion for tin- police force. The police
idea of Old thai putiiicil.v of lliis nature
would defeat the ends of Justice has been
set forth by many a blaacoat with a
wicked wink. The Waid?, scheme will
disclose the fa?is and ought to put the
force on its mettle, it certainly will not
be received by the second story men and
other rognes with any great joy.

The full resulta of Captain Ainuud?
sen's daring and successful dash to tbe
South Pole must await disclosure until
his detailed narrative is given to the
world. From reports already made ii
?^ possible, however, to draw a?rerai
highly Interesting conclusions. One is a
gratifying continuation ??. one part of
Ai I m ii.il Peary'a story of his Arctic
quest wiiicii excited not Incredulity but
much surprise, namely, bis statement of
tbe raie of speed at whi.h be travelled.
Peary'? average raie north ward from
Grant Land was thirteen miles g day,
and returning be reached the speed of
thirty miles a day. Amundsen wem
southward from the Barriera! an averag
rate of nearly fifteen miles -,, flay, and
returned at the ra'.- of twentj miles.
As xniumiseii bad a much longer dis
tance to travel than Peary, his high ar
erage for the arbole journej suggests the
easy possibility "f Lean's having made
ih. speed reported by blm on hi- much
shorter dash.
a second pedal which is discerned In
Amundsen's report, in confirmation of
former accounts ef the Antarctic ra
giuiis. is that the pracipttatioa there i.s
comparatively slight, it ?. true thai
smiie huge glaciers exist and that the Ice
Barrier i- comparante with any of the
Iceberg producen Of the Far North. Hin
the land is not covered with any such
universal Ice cap as,that which stretches
over Greenland. Thin Antarctic desert i<
far more | desert of dryness than the
loue lands of tlie north. The relation
of this scantiness uf precipitation lu

Wilkefl Land, the longest streich of ex

Antarctic Circle, past Australia, to a
point due south i>f India, and comprising
lands known successively as Adelte,
Ciarte, North, Sabrina, Totten, Balleny,

Beyond these onl.1 a few scattered point

This rude delimitation represents a

I III' WARMOVER FROM '''"
What Is there to this "Do the i.pie
rule." issue of Colonel Bryan's which
Colonel Rooaeveli has just wanned
over, if tbe tatter's explanation is taken
?i' his plan for recalling decisions'.' He
speaks of the Eleventh Amendment to
the federal OonatitUtlon as an early in
stance of such recall, mi the ground that
it practically reversed a decision of tlie
Supreme Court holding thai states ?could
he sued in that court by residents ?it
other sial's or by foreigners. It' thai
was the recall of a decision tbe people
have inen "ruling" for a century or
more. The amendment to the constltu
tlon iu lilis state Just passed by the
Assembly msking workmen's compensa
lion laws constitutional l> also spoken
of as a recall of the recent decision of
the Court of Appeals adverse io roch
laws, if it is. what sen.,, is there in
asserting that the -?copio ,i,, nol rule for
lack of pawer t?i recall sin-h decisions?
Colonel itooseveit has described his
plan as a shorter and simpler way of
amending state constitutions. Hi- plan
is neither short nor simple. It would
commonly lake two. three or even hall
a dozen referendum voies to establish
the constitutionality of a series of acts
whose constitutionality might in- estait?
llshed by a .Ingle amendment. Take the
colonel's favorite Illustration of tbe a.i
of his device workmen'a compensation
legislation in thi- state. As The Tribune
has already pointed out. one referendum
j of ihe Roosevelt Sort might have made
?the Wainw ligin a? i constitutional, hul
? that would have provided rompen
, satiofl for injuries only in dangerous
trades, Whenever a bin was passed ei
? tending tbe principle to other trades, an
other referendum wonld become i
sary. A procesa that works mice for all
is shorter and simpler than one tbnl
works piecemeal. The people do rule
now. with means that are shorter, slm
pier and more effective than tin?-..- pro

DISINHERITED WHO.
Socialist Teaching for British
Democracy.
London. Match !>.
British democracy is not fratefal for
social reforma. The ?unreal estimate for
old ace panetons is 112^00,000; for labor
exchanges and unemployment in?ur.nc_
(804067 is added, and tlie preliminary
expenses of the Insurance act; which la
to beOOBM operative next .1UI>. are
i_.?Mi?.l?L,."i. The Liberal government ha?
BO! .shirked the responsibility of Waging
at high cost what the Chancellor ha? de?
acribad ;i? 'implacable war fais against
poverty," and yet there has hern a scries
of startling defeats at by-elections, cul?
minating in disaster at Smith Man?
chester, since the insurance hill was in
troduoed in Parliament as a remedial
measure for uplifting tlie masses.
UalonlSt managers und candidat-_ hav.
been unscrupulous in taking advantage
Ol an unpopul?r act bet?re its tNNM?ta
v. ere understood; but partisan sharp
practice does not aOOOUttt for th* shrink?
age of the Liberal polls. The trad?
unionists and worklngmen under social?
ist leadership have turned against th?
government They have not been wilting
to pay for social lefOIIU by 'a tax on
wages."
Neither the South Manchester elec?
tion, nor the. disastrous miners' sfrik.
can bo understood without epectfte ref?
er.no . to the socialist propaganda pre?
claimed by agitators and explained Iu
Ins flota ami cheap manuals As the casa
for socialism is summed np b. plausible
irriten like Mr. Fred Henderson, pri
vata ownership of land and capital en?
able., tiie haves to appropriate for theaa?
selves everything above* a bare living
for the have-nots. There ii wealth
enough for all when Incomes era la
creasing at an average of t _:_!,< M.,m?)
a year; and people are poor because the
national resources ato unjustly dis
tributad. That is the socialist t-achm.
and the conclusion comes straightway
that poverty will be got rid of if ths
privileged classes can be dispossessed _f
control of the sources of wealth. That
Lh to say, capital and industry in
of being ordered for private profit wl!,
become civic services for the benefit of
all, and there will be a final disappear -
anee of the right of an owning class to
live by tribute upon tlie labor of a sub?
ject class. At the bottom of the socialise
case as presented by agitators like Mr.
Hartshorn and Mr. Keir Hardie and by
writers llko Mr. Henderson is the idea
that eg operative Joint ownership by the
wholo nation of the means of work will
change the face of England and put -'in
end to poverty. The United Kingdom,
with its land, industries and capital, will
become a Joint stock company, with
every citizen fully Invested with pro?
prietary rights.
Trade unionism Is saturated with thos
socialist teachings. Worklngmen i
mires and factories are looking for thei
ransom In an Industrial Inheritance wh e
national resources now reserved tor th
few are distributed among the homes o
tlie people and mado available for gen
eral life. Their expectations ara dis
appointed when the Chancellor, at'te
budgeting for a few millions for pen
slons end other social reforms. ___;
workmen to pay their quota along wit.
their employers toward sickness fund?
and social reforms. They reject the ein
tributar], basis of insurance as an un
neceasar] concession to the capital!**'
? las.. There must be nothing like taxa
tion of wages! Let ministers find fresl
methods of attacking privileged classe
and of making levies upon the Idle rich
but let thorn beware of asking the disin
herlted aaaaaaa. who have not yet com?
into their kingdom, to pay for anythinj
themselves: If there cannot be insur
anee at the expenso of either the _t.it*
or of tho employers, the Socialist, with
his trade unionist followers, wlD hav.
none of It. If ministers persist in pad?
dling burdens upon the pour workman
their majorities will be cut down and
wiped out! If they are not warned by
one by-e!eetion they will be demoralized
by a senes of disasters until they barn
