Now coincH Ihe calm jiidyinciil of an
aitnv Mirucon of lar'' experience lo
add lo the nhciidy inerwhehnlnu pi oof
ol olll cnliletllioli. Colonel I,. M. M.M S
has piocnteil to the Aksoi ialion of
Military SnrueotiH of the I nited SiiiIcm
foine siati'siics iii show that alcoholic
stimulants ..hniild he ititerdiclcd in the

act ti racy and t.ipiditv of liritu; amimi:
the men and impair the nhiliiy of olll
cet.s to command troop ami solve
military pmlilciiw, lo act on cmirls.
martial and military hoards.
Colonel Macs demonstrates that alco
hoi is (he frequent cntlse of sickness
and adds mcatly lo the iion.clllcicncy
of hoth olllccrs and men, forces them
on the retired or pension list with eor
icspoiidnin increase of Kovcruincntal
ependiliires. Piitct ically nil thecriine
committed in the tinny can Im' traced
to alcohol, sji.vs this veteran army
siirueon. 'Ihe majority of degenerates
w ho enter ihe army, deserters., the inapt
and moral perverts are victims of alco
holic ln'verai;cs or their hereditary
effects. Ihe sick rate of the tinny
would he reduced ,Vi per cent and its
elllciency cori espomliiiKly increased by
ihe inteidietioti of alcohol.
The economic side of the alcohol itics
lion, which is the most teadily demon
strable, is clearly bronchi out by the
tacts cited, showing that corporations
ate jiisjjcd in Hidly e.xelinlinc em
ployees who use alcohol beyond the most
moderate extent. The absolute ptoof
that indulgence jn alcoholics so im
paiis the eflicietiey of tho workmen,
eiiniiieers, conductors, trainmen and
ol hers upon whose perfect physical and
mental condition depend not only the
lives and limbs of the passengers but
the lives also of the train crews, has con
vinced many of the latter who formerly
opposiil the interdiction of alcohol as
an infringement upon their richts of
the enor of their ways.
It is to be hoped that tho workmen's
associations may consider this question
from the .tandpoiiit of self-interest at
least. American engineers will not he
so inconsiderate if not stupid as to strike
becau-e one of their number who had
wrecked a train and been proved guilty
of intoxication while in charge of hi
engine was dismissed.
The I'roposeil Vew Pnlii e.
De entrali.'-'ition of lespon.-tbility and
, division of authority at ome present
themselves as objections to the pro
posal creation of a new police depart-
, tneiit to enforce the laws against gam-
, bling. unliceiised liquor selling and pros
titution. A commission of more than
one man cannot be seriously considered
, to head it. 'Ihe history of bipartisan
, police i ominisions is too well retnem
beted in this town. 'I hat the execution
of the scheme would cost JJ.CmO.lXO a
year i an incident. If the city nee I
the additional department it can a fiord
to support it.
Infavorof the proposal it i urged that
by removing from the existing Police
Department all authority over gamblers,
pto-tittites and law defying drinking
' pl.it e proprietors the jKiyment of graft
to poltieiueii would he automatically
stepped. It is assumed that one lone
lould ignore the places in which they
gathered. Would tin, turn out to be
the fait? Most of the crimes that the
peaie olliceis mu-t investigate origi
nate m or lead to the gaming table, the
Inoihe! or the drinking plm e. If at
t he door of any ol thetn the peace ollicer
mu-t giw up Iii- search or finds a;. other
' man to who-e shoulders he can shift
some of liia responsibility, will the re
sult better conditions?
It is proposed to hire i.ono men at
M.O'Mi.ca'h a year to police the dis
reputable resort-, their proprietor!-, in-
' mates and patrons, 'ihe.-e men are to
, be employed in the best judgment of
the department head. Where are they
to be found'' Might not all the good
ie-iilts promised from the new depart
ment he obtained by giving a secret
si'i-vjie fund to the Police Commissioner
and letting him hire whom he wished
for confidential investigations?
I What could not a Police Commissioner
do with a fund of say $1,000,000, to be
spent in the investigation of vicious
1 conditions and the collection of evidence
! against those chargeable with them?

The Turkl-h Appeal.
The despatches from London which
announce that Turkey has again ap
pealed to the Powers to intervene and
end the Halkan (onfh'et confirm the

J not only recently overwhelmed by battle

I unlikely. Hut that the Young Turks

was aparent. 'Ihe application for in
tervention now is sceminglv a confes
sion of failure
While the allies have not as yet cap
tured Adriatiople. tttari or .lanitia, it
is t fi'taiti that no second armistiie will

to be cotisideicd enviable.
As for the li'i.'tit hostilities still nn

'Ihe nature of my business requires that

'Ihe noiseless automobile of to. day is n
menace to the public safety unless it gives I
some kind of u sound which will effectively
give warning of its approach. It should
not be siiftlcieut that a driver waits until
he Is almost upon n pedestrian and then
gives a few hoarse "honks." Very often
agility Is the only preventive rif accident
when this kind of a warning is all that is
It seems to me that the law should re

f which the "sqiiawker" or so-called "bulb '

tho noises of the street from a sufficient
distance to allow pedestrians to cross tho
street Bfely and without confusion. It Is
a v eil known fact that the great majority
of accidents to pedestrian are caused by
their not being aware of the approach of the
automobile or from their becoming con
fused when it Is almost upon them
1 believe that if n law of this character

would be tremendously reduced.
