When Albany Probes the City.
Mayor Mitchel's pica that the legis
lative committee directed to investigate
New York City's finances organizo at
once, perform its work and report in time
to permit Governor Whitman to save the
metropolis from s $1 1,000,000 ?share of an
outraerous direct tax will hardly he
granted. It i? unlikely' that the Mayor
has ary expectation that it will ho. The
legislative policy patently is to make New
York City pay for local pap upstate, and
to give no heed to the representatives of
the unlucky taxpayers hero who want to
enter a protest. Under the circum-j
stances, official action which might con?
ceivably discloss the Injustice of the Al?
bany policy before it has been fully car?
ried out is not to be thought of.
When this legislativo investigation
comes the city has only one desire?that
it ho thorough and Impartial, Other city
administrations mishit have had causo
for worry over such a probin?*. This one
has none. That is not to say that, it has
been a perfect administration, without
mistakes or shortcomings. It has been
quite human enough to have it? share of
both. But it has l?een honest and it has
been economical.
Its budget this year was smaller, in
appropriations for departments under
the Mayor, ' ontroller and Boroneh Pres?
idents, than the preceding budget There
was no "pork." Operating expenses of
the municipal government, save those im
by ?Statute and the interest on out?
standing debt'-, are at rock bottom or are
rapidly being put there. Moreover,
through the n.: the ""pay-as-JOU
go" idea ?of financing non-self-supporting
future improvements the debt-carrying
costs will le . ned in the
long run, and the city's finances will be
on a sounder basis than ever before.
All this a fair investigation must dis?
close. Likewise it must reveal the re?
sponsibility of Albany for heavy fixed
expenses of city and county government
which do not come under the pruning
power of the Board of Estimate. Also it
must show that th<* taxpayers of New
York have th? present Legislature tct
thank for a 17.5 point raise in next year's
tax ra*i- ern? r Whitman has
the courage to veto the direct tax bill.
If such find '. such findings
thero must be, if the committee does its
work thoroughly and honestly?bring
about a different attitude on the part of
future legislatures toward this city, New
York will have no <? 'ret the in?
vestigation. If th?' inquiry resulta in
placing in the hand : nthorl
tiev complete i ? xpenditurea paid
for out of the city's tax levy a power
this Lsgi lal I to ?grant?it

If it show? c enough to im
press Al iniquity of extracting
1 huge din ?? ' payments from New
' Yorkers ? ??-> improvements,
this.city will l?e th gaii er.
Butifth? lion turns out to be a
mer?' a political
attempt to diver! the very real issue
winch the cii now has against the state
authorities on this ?subject of taxation,
the lawmakers w< pot have
undertake :. it ' I ladequately represented,
unjustly taxed. New Yorkers still have
votes, and they are amply able to use
them.
The Wage Earner's Dollar.
Professor Irving Fisher, of Yule, has
come to the * wags earner
with th, *:.':'? ,ti?>n that the dollar be
standardized ? ? m It, not of coin weight
but of value. So long as gold remains the
standard and its volume increases his
suggestion li one wl ich the wage earner
may entertain with hope ami pleasure.
But once let the production of gold fall
off and its exchange vs ass ami
then it will 1 ??* the turn of the wage payer
to bless the professor.
Prof, _er has pointed out that
in the la<-t eighteen years the man of ?fixed
income, whether from wages or bonds, has
lost n third of hil former purchasing
power, duo to the general increase
of prices, the familiar "high cost of
living." which of cour e is simply an?
other name for the reduced value of gold.
To save him from further loss the econo?
mist would have the amount of gold in
the dollar increased to offset its growing
cheapne.?.s, so that the dollar might con?
tinue to p iams potency. The
idea is highly ingenious, ntrary
to the popular notion once fervently fath?
ered by Mr. Bryan. SI money cheapens it
is the poor man, net the rich, who suffers.
That is, wages never riss fyurt enough
or far enough to 1 vith rising
prices, while profita feel their stimulus
immediately.
But it is also true that when prices fall.
when gold becomes dearer, wages do not
fall as fast <?r as far, th?)ugh profits take
the tumble without hesitation. The
money of 1
therefore, ?ill I _J bim more under tho*??,,
conditions, unless, of ?rourse, In accord?
ance with Professor Fisher's plan, the
dollar is made a unit of value and the
amount of gold In it reduced to offset the
greater Fcnrelty of the metal.
Now, the amount of gold in this world
Is limited. 8ome time or other Its pro?
duction must dwindle. Whether the wngo
earner and bondholder would profit In the
long run from the adoption of Professor
Fisher's suggestion depends on the prox?
imity of this period of diminishing re?
turns. It might conceivably he not very
?far off.
Water on Both Shoulders.
Considering the disregard for "the la?
bor" vote which the majority nt .Albany
displayed in manhandling ?the worlunen'a
compensation lnw and the Labor Depart?
ment, its tenderness in refusing to repeal
the full crew law seems like straining at a
gnat and swallowing a camel. The com?
promise bill, which would have enabled the
Public Service Commission to determine
the necessity for extra men in train crews,
?as stipulated by that law, was not ade?
quate. Nevertheless, it would have
better than the existing statute. It at
least afforded opportunity for an inquiry
into tho situation which does not now ex?
ist.
Having refused to adopt even this meas?
ure, the Legislature placed itself in the
position of offending "labor" under cir?
cumstances where the arg labor
advocates coincided with the- great body ? I
independent erested public senti?
ment and of backing up "labor" where the
labor advocates had a weak, if not wholly
meritless, case. Such a course may be
?rood politics and Rood lawinaking, bul it
does not f-ecm like either. An efTcrt to
carry waler on both shouldei i
easy and seldom successful.
The War Makers.
In one quality at leant Professor Ed?
mund von Mach surpasses his distin?
guished rival Dr. I?ernburg in richness
and exuberanco of imagination. He has
not only satisfied himself that the war
was brought about by England's
mischief maker, Sir Edward (?rev, but i
persuaded that sfanple-tninded France and
ill-fated Russin are of his own mind and
that "their hntred of the British in?
creases every day."
On Saturday night his enthusiasm car?
ried him even further, when he confided
to his audience that Britain itself eras
turning against the arch-conspirator;
that recent "English estimate " were al?
together in accord with his own; nay, that
.-"ine sober thinkers in that country wire
of opinion that the government "ought to
try him for treason and send him to the
gallou. "
That the professor would regard this
course as entirely reasonable may well be
.i!; the mischief is, however, that
tho punishment, if carried out by Eng
arould but avenge England's wrongs.
New, what grieves him is, as he exp
not merely that the Foreign Secretary
has "betrayed his own country," but that
be actually "lured Russia" into the perni?
cious enterprise of which the ?
'jtiences arc now apparent.
,\11 of which is very enlightening, but
grievously inconsistent with the opinion
of Professor von Much'"* imperial master,
who in August last delivered thrt
11? rr Ballin the following message
Rritish consumption: "It must be tal
again: Russia alone forces the war upon
Europe, Russia alone must carrj
full weight of responsibility." G
Rritain, by the way, had not declared war
when this notable utterai
Let us therefore be i
may yet be found that some country nol
hitherto engaged is responsible for the
luring of Sir Edward Gi ?
Vicious Anti-Americanism.
It is amazing to what lengths some of
the hyphenated ne? papers in thi
try are willing to go in order to foment
a spirit of anti-Americani m among the
alien elemenl i which have s< I tied hei
lay, for example, the "New Ni ?
Herold" printed an editorial whoso chief
purpose was apparently to demon: trate- the
importance of united political action on the|
part of German-Americans, 'i he Gei
American youth, it raid, ought to : ?
stnicted as to the practical value of
darity, since in that way only could the
German element here maintain its position
against the English-Ameri t, de?
fend its own rights, and prevent discrim?
inations directed against it.
To drive this advice borne the nrt;cb>
charged that discriminations are row
made against naturalized citizens which
have no wai rant n tl
expatriation law was menti ?ne of
since it puts a limitation (1
very wise one, at that) on the liberty of
an alien naturalized here to return for an
i..?it-unite residence in the land of his birth
or former allegiance. The disinclii
i'f the government (also ful d) to
send naturalized citizens as diplomat
consular officers t<? the countries of their
birth was also criticised.
But the limit of vicious antl-Amrrican
i?' reached in the statement that no
naturalized citizen can become a Federal
irding to our i
er judicial qualification
and however pure ai . char?
acter may be. Moreover, a i
"llerold's" critic, "in the government of
fices In Washington one finds almost no
naturalized Americans; tho officials are
mostly impoverished depende:.?? of 1 !
American families, who have gotten their
jobs through pull."
The charge that no natural: ??

invention. There have be? n thre?

to the charge that almost M foreign

i. it is enough to call attention to
;t that In the Cabinet of President
Wilson there are two secretaries of for?

Insinuations that Americans of foreign

can mislead only tho thoughtless or the

Quarantine Unpreparedneaa.
Tho whole country is, of course, pro?
foundly intereste?! in the efficient con?
duct of the quarantine station at this
?port. That in itself would seem sufficient
-, for giving the whole country some
control of it. through the Federal Health
Servies. Even supposing that ws of New

from the disintegrating influence of poli
the rc-t of tho United States could
hardly be expected to share our confidence.
But we are not so convinced. Indeed,
following the dismissal of Dr. Doty by
Governor Dix, a plain patronage grab In
'ace of a European cholera epidemic,
we are convinced that tho contrary may
well he tho case. And when Dr. J. A.
Nydegger, head of the Federal Health
Service at the Port of Baltimore, tells us,

The Home vs. the Saloon.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
. i : The letter of F. C. Seudder on "Home
Ballots" Is a fair example of the
sense of Justice of a large percentage of men.
He says: "A number of women would un?
doubtedly demand office, and others would
have offices tendered to them for political
purposes. l>o you think this further Invasion

life, whieh you will admit is the foundation
of oar social life, intact?"
There is no anxiety about the "home"
when women **o out to work, which takes
them out of the home, In work and transit,

the moment that there is any danger of a

alarm about "the home."

?NEEDLESS SLAUGHTER.
Most Automobile Killings Preventable
Under Adequate Regulations.
To tho Editor of Tho Tribune.
Sir: 1 have been reading with considera?
ble Interest comments in the public press re
garding the killing of Karl Litter by an au?
tomobile. It is most unfortunate that this
-uished artist (should have met his
death in what can be classed as a preventable
accident. But must we ?visit until some (
prominent citizen is killed In this manner
heforo tho authorities and the public arc
1 to action, when our annual slaughter j
of human beings in this city by motor vehi- I
cles has averaged S00 for the last three '
years? .Nine hundred human lives needlessly;
'
The responsibility for 'b-T-o killings rests i
with the state, as timo and again measures ?
of prevention have been re.-ommended, but
have failed to 1, | aeted upon.
A ; r ago there wan considerable agita?
tion In the public press in regard to the In
creasing number of automobile fatalities in
?bin city. As a result a committee of citi?
zens, of which I was a member, had several
nicotines at the American M iseum of Safety
ass motor vehicle accidents and their
prevention. Investigations of the causes an?!
?' ? ? seeidents, ns revealed by
evidence obtsined at the coroners' inques's,
showed that of lT'i people killed in the Bor
OUgh of Manhattan in 1918, M per cent were
treet Intersections, and 75 per
cent of these accidents were the fault of the
operator of the car in turnincr corners at
high ?peed without any warning to the pedes?
trian--.
In- pite tho fact that these deaths were
due to gross criminal negligence, none of
these reckless drivers ?.vas punished even to
the extent of being deprived of the privilege
of dris/ing cars.
Our committee made tho following recom
mendstions to the proper authorities:
That the recommendation of the Hoard of
Coroners that police order No. 10, issued
M.,y 10, 1910, not to arrest drivers after run?
ning over human beings, bo rescinded, as a
number of drivers of motor vehicles escaped
from the jurisdiction of tho authorities and
could not be found later, when an inv? ?
tion of the case revealed criminal negligence.
That a state law be enacted, licensing nil
operators of cars, owners as well as chauf
feurs, after nn examination; revocation of
?ho license for one month, a year, or totally,
if tho offence justifies it; all accidents to be
reported by the osvner or operator of the ;
car* more rigid enforcement of tho traffic
oiilinnnces by tho post patrolman as well as
the traffic squad, and one of the magistrates'
courts to be assigned as a traffic court,
where violators of the law, when apprehend?
ed, would soon become known, as their rec?
ords, could be kept in this court. This would
simplify means of getting facts to revoke the
license.
I want to say to Karl Bittor's friends that
had these measures of prevention been en?
acted his life and the lives of many of our
citizens might have been saved.

A Real Waterfront Park.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: In a recent letter appearing in The
Tribune, signed "W. Bryan," I note the
writer is evidently nnder the impression that
ut a lecture at Columbia College on the
park question I advocated the filling in of
I I'aTk.
I therefore write to correct what is evi?
dently a complete misapprehension. What
I bed reference to was the so-called "River?
side fill" to the ?rest of the New York Cen
tral tracks, which has been in process of con?
struction for several years. I stated my be?
lief that when completed this fill would as
list in the uolving of the difficult problem
of the elimination of the objectionable feat?
