against which Mr. Wilson so sharply
warned the nation one year ago ne.t

self-rule as well as Ulster; that Ulster

An Impudent Auditor.
On Urlday night at a meeting of the
New York University Koruiii Mr. An
Trim (liovAN.MTTt, the eminent agita
tor and soulful leader of the Industrial
Workers of the World, Rave n new xer
sloti of social Justice In these xvords:
"I don't consider right or wronir, t
don't consider the rights of other classes.
All I consider Is the Interest of labor."
As a frauk expounder of enlightened
self-interest Mr. tiiov.xNNiiTi easily
carries off the palm. "I don't consider
right or xvrong." Kthlcs are obsolete.
Christianity Is a failure. Justice Is the
vagary of civilization.
Had Mr. fiiov.xNNiTn been satlslled
with his doctrine all might haxe gone
well. Hut he xx'cnt on to advise "every
one not a laborer to let labor alone."
This declaration from such a source
caused a stupid and insolent listener
to nsk Mr. Giovanni m what xvas his
own connection xvlth labor. We read
that the spenker seemed "a pood deal
nettled." The trouble with burrs Is
that they sometimes stick even on oily
coats. And had Mr. (Iiovannitti been
as frank In hl answer n he xvas about
his doctrines he would have replied that
It xx-.'is none of the auditor's business,
lie admitted merely that he didn't xvork

Here arises another query : May one
not xxork xvlth his mouth? Certainly.

critics of the Monroe Doctrine hi " liux
lug u glorious time exposing what they
consider the defects of that fundu-
mental principle of our foreign policy.
Tho lutest deliverance of this sort Is
probably the lifter dinner speech by tho .
xvhllom Trensurer-General of Persia,
Mr. W. M. Shuster, xvhlch I see men
tioned In This Hpn of this morning. '
.Mr. Shuster calls the Monroe Doctrine!
a bluff. A bluff Involves a threat to do
something which one cannot do, What
Is the threat of the Monroe Doctrine?
Thnfnn Interposition by n Kuropenn ;
Power for the purpose of oppressing an ,
American republic or In uny other man-!
ncr controlling Its destiny will be
viewed "ns a manifestation of an un-1
friendly disposition toward tho United '
States." It may be admitted also thnt1
there Is nn Implied thieat In the nsser-I
lion that "the American continents
nre 'hence forth not to be con
sldcied ns subjects for future colonlza-i
Hon by Kuropeau Powers." !
Noxv I do not ore in cither of these
Hi rents any such dilllciilty ns would
warrant the deprecation of It as a bluff.
Attempts made by Guropcan Poxvers to!
control the destiny of nn American
people have been with fexv If nny ex
ceptions resented not only by the United 1
Slates but also by practically all Uitln
America, lu spite of the prohibition of
European colonization there have been '
cases of It, notably by Great Hrltaln In
despoiling Argentina of tho Falkland
Islands and In taklnc advantage eif our
embarrassments In the ilxil xvar to con
vert the Mritlsli settlement of Itclb.e. or
Ijrltlsh Honduras. Into a Crown colony.
The latter was not only n contravention
of the Monroe Doctrine Put also a vio
lation of the (iayton-Hiilwer treaty. It
proves a temporary, csceptfonal, but
not a in rm.inont Inability to command
respect for t). Monn. Doctrine. If
one considers this declaration ns apply
ing to the whole Western Hemisphere
other cases may 1. cited of Its contra
vention, most of them also by Great
Hrltaln. Hut these the Cnlteii States
did not care to prevent. She bad sulli

The enforcement In this town of the

fences short of thoeo ln ulvlng moral

no matter what the outcome might lie,
one, heroic getting disentangled of Its

one arrested need be put to tho slightest
Inconvenience. Hundreds of people, aiu
arrested in this town dally for various
offences xhlch arc thought serious enough
to be prohibited by laxv or ordinance.
What happens? They are held in small

are fined maybe. Then they collect the

In the lrindllng of automobiles, will at
times, xvhen be thinks the hlghxv.iy is clear
and there Is no danger of a mishap, be
tempted solely by the exhilaration a high
rate of speed excites to exceed spu d limit
xvlthout Intending to, or oven being con

I bellexe the effective lenndy llts In leg
islation prohibiting maiiutactuieit- of auto

to excml say twenty miles an hour, what

Of course proper exceptions could be
made for machines Inteiubd solely for rue

any pilxate vehicle should be propelled
along a public highway, The advantages
of thus limiting the sp-ed of automobiles
nre manifold. To sav nothing of the re

importance, the xxcar and tear on the.

Furthermore, If automobiles xxen so con

St.'N .xcstcrday of a new system put Into

The Instrument xvlth which the work Is
done Is known .as a rectlgraph. Thex ma
chine noxv In use by the board la rented
for tiO cents a month, tho chief cost s.f
operation being tho paper on which the
photograph is made.
Dr. Clullfoy expects to get the cost of
the paier down to four cents a copy for
each record, xvhlch sells for 60 cents. Ho
has llgured that the e-ost of having the
copy typexxrltten by a cbrk amounts to
cboiit four cents a copy, so that with the
II of the teitlgraph the set vices of txx-o
cl iks can be dispensed with. The copies
are made accurately, the cost is not In
creased, and the records cannot be
changed xvlthout detection.
"It seems strange to me," said Dr.
feiillfoy, "that the xvork of this instiu

character are not subject to civil ser
vice regulations, according to an opinion
rendered to-day by Attorney-General
Carmrly at the request of the Stutu

sion Is not bound, however, by the certltl-i-ate
of the Sheriff thnt the duties of any

should determine that such Is the fact.
Mr C.irmody bases tils conclusion upon
a decision of the Court of Appeals In
Klabiity vs. Mllliken, a proceeding of
mandamus brought by the Sheriff of
Kings county. In that case the court held
certain employees exempt from civil ser
