Rut Dr. Wilson Is not Dr. Syntax.
We have long observed with genuine'
furprlce and unaffected horror bis
ineradicable propensity for writing
"will" when It whould lie "shall." nnd
"shall" when It should be "will."
From motives of humanity and i
triatlMti we have withheld for ninny
months the deserved rebuke. j
Since our neighbor the r.rnin(i
Pont has now mercilessly commented
upon the scnndnl we see no renson for .
keeping It longer from our own art'
of the gmmmatlcnl public.

Also, about five minute after Ihl- In

What Wat It All About?
In Its earlier activities the Thomp
son committee pursued an easily un
derstood object. Its piirpo: was to
oust the Public Service Commissioners
In ofllce at the time of Its appoint
ment. Its sjioniors hoped the vacan
cies thus created would 1m tilled with
men useful to them. Governor Whit
man disappointed the.se ambitions, and
the men be selected for the Jobs were
opposed by the committee with almost
ns much v lolence as their predecessors
Hut the intention animating the
committee In its later manifestations
hna mystified all who were not In ltn
confidence. The outstanding charac
teristic of Its wor!- has been Its lnck
of thoroughness. It has started In
quiries and abandoned them; promise,!
sensations and fulled to produce them;
permitted the utterance of allegations
and nosloeted to produce evidence sup
porting them. Its record Is a curious
compilation of odda nnd ends of ex
ploded scandals. Imitation revelations
and apparently malicious attacks on
Individuals In the course of which U
has exhibited Its Ignorance of the past
and Its Incapacity to grasp the facts
of the present.

THE NEW SUM.
From the World 0 tirtterian
Mr. Munscy, in announcing the con

lays stress upon the circulation and
press franchise of the one nnd the ad-x-crtlslng

the union of two of New York's morn

guage Is more thnn a financial device
of "operating economies."

to the partnership without an ability
and sincerity which do honor to Its

A lljphenated Ancestor Profits by a
llesrendant's Hoston Experience.
To tub EDtTon or The Sun Str: I
am a parochial Nyw Yorker, without
ancestors, Interned In Hoston. My fam
ily came to Brooklyn from somewhere
In Iowa Just after the civil war, and
the only ancestor I know anything
alout was my mother's father, a Luth
eian pastor named Schult. When I
was a child a crayon portrait of him.
blr. solemn nnd double chinned, stood
on a bamboo easel In the front room
of the flat xvhero I was born,
My married sister, who Uvea In Wis
consin, lias a Bible that belonged to my
father's folks, ami I think t.Vre Is half
a page In It devoted to births and
deaths that took place In the '60s and
'7ft. Yet, till I cam to Boston I con
sidered myself a good American, even
though I had only rrandfathtfr Schultx
nnd those, few faded lines.
When I came to Boston I betran buy
ing a Boston newspaper, and learned
from It my lack of ancestral distinc
tion. I had spread the paper out on
the table under the electric llsht. when
a whole page labelled "cien"aloj;lcat"
cauitht my eye. This astounding page,
unlike nnythlng I have ever een In my
life, voi full of queries of this sort:
"Does any reader .know anything of
Kllphalet Perkins?" "Will , U. O.'
trll me If Maria Hoke married Jabez
Hoke In Northampton. Massachusetts.
In 17SI?" and the bitter cry. "I have
looked through the Hoston flies and
the Needham files and can't find a thing
aliout Heieklah l'ortleberry, who had a
forge In Needham In 1094." I saw the
date and would have blushed for Iowa
and Parson Schultz had I not remem
bered that Bill Jones, who occupied the
flat opponlte ours In Brooklyn, and
pretty much all my other friends, were
In the same fix.
To-day I bought a bluestocking Bos
ton magazine and the darned ancestral
problem rose at me again. I got tho
pedigree of the whole bunch of contribu
tors. If they aro American, Parson
Schultz -will do for me.
Only two courses are open to me:
Either I must stay In Boston, where
they have ancestors and streets such as
the one Which stretches away from th
Harvard Club, positively In the worst
condition In which I have ever tenn a
street In any city, or return to New
York, where Bill Jones nnd myself are

Criticism of the Plan for Private

To the Kpitor or The Sc.n Sir. in
to-day's number of Tir- Sun I note that
(!ommlsnlnner Klin's-. urv h.iH rpr.lvml
$150,000 with which l:e la to place de-l
pendent children In private homes In
stead of Institutions. This plan looks
very pretty on paper, but let us see
how It will work out.
There are upward of 20,000 children
In tho institutions. How f,tr would
1150,000 go In plnclng them In private
homes? VATint kind of homes would
care for a child at the rate paid to the
Institutions, 2.2S a week?
The whole problem Is visionary and
It the poor children alone I Inspect
tho Institutions carefully, and by all
means fairly and honestly, and the
poor children will get the best results.
The proposed change reads prettily, "a
real home with a real mother la It,"
but It won't work,

ON THE RIVER.
The Ohio Still Supports (he Float
lng Theatre as of Old.
To the EotTon of The Sun sir; In
your editorial article of June 27, "An
other Institution Passes," you call
attention to the sale of the picturesque
river theatie Dixie by the United States
Marshal at Osage, Mo. You conclude
your remarks with these words: 'The
movies came like a U boat and wrecked
the last boat of the flotilla."
You are probably right In all your
facts except this one, as I can testify
from an experience I had In May, My
home Is In Cincinnati, which you say
was "the outfitting place of most of
these amusement flotillas." On a spring
walk near Anderson's Ferry I noticed a
sign to the effect that tho theatre boat
would be At Constance, Ky., a little town
near Anderson's Ferry, for one perform
ance on a certain night not far distant,
"Admission 15 cents, 25 cents and 35
cents. Latest Broadway Song Suc
cesses." I had never een a river theatre and
had had my attention excited a few days
before by a freshwater sailor on a
steamboat trip to Louisville, who said
he had never been on land six weeks In
his life and pointed out to me an old
steamboat captain who owned three
theatre boats and who was then on a
visit to Madison. He was also a mem
ber of the plutocracy, for my sailor said
"he had lost tlOO In the failure of the
bank at New Itlchmond, but that that
made no difference to him, as he cared
no more for $1,000 than you would cure
for a cent."
I went to the ehow on the night ad
vertised. The performance began at 8
o'clock and the leading lady sold the
tickets at the door of the boat, while
one of the men actors took them up and
showed us to our seats. The audience
w.vs composed entirely of white people
and came from the nearby towns. The
women were bare headed, but neatly
dressed, and no babies bad been left nt
home, one being carried by nearly every
man and woman.
The play was a melodrama of life In
Arkansas. A pretty school teacher, with
one pupil, a city fellow courting the
pretty school teacher, a country lover In
the background, a mortgage on the farm,
which the city fellow gets possession of
after he has discovered n valuable mine
on the land, and so forth and so on.
Th climax was the wild murder of the
pretty school teacher by the city fellow.
He handled her like glass and when he
had killed her he laid her down gently
"as a sucking dove." But the audience
applauded loudly. Then a mob of two,
Inc.ted by the country fellow, tried to
lynch the city fellow, but the pretty
ffhool teacher turned up In time, with
bandaged head and all ended happily.
In the tnterx-als between acts the
mother of the school teacher sang a song
about the American flag while wrapped
in Its folds. Then came a coon song,
".ill the Broadway musical successes" as
At the end of the performance the
Crummies of the troupe came out and
announced that next year they would
have a larger and a better boat and
hoped for a continuance of the patron
nge. Within a week I have heard of
four different boats giving performances
at towns along the Ohio. So It appears
that those who think "the movies have
jme like a V boat and wrecked the
last of the flotilla" of Ohio river theatre
boats are mightily mistaken.
The ticket taker alo sold "I.uke Mc
Iuke salted Spanish pennuts In an ab
solutely sanitary bag " They were good
and he quickly exhausted his stock.

marine whose appexrance Is hourly ex
pected either at Boston or here at New
York. The report further credits my
sister-in-law with being the custodian
cf a personal letter of congratulation
from the Kaiser to General Joffre upon
the engagements near Verdun.
Pending either the appearance of the
submarine or the verification of this re
IKirt, or lack of It, I am giving my time
to the writing of a scientific tok which
will, I hope, be before the public In eight
or ten years. I speak of my book only
because In the compilation of It I hHVe
made the Interesting discovery that
there Is nothing In the world more sim
ple than writing a truly scientific work.
I know that there are tho- who will not
agre with me and others who will ex
preys surprise. Still I hold to my con
tention, and will briefly explain my
method In writing my hook. It Is
li-t explained by Illustration.
If you will turn. then, to page 43 of
"The Ps etiological Effect of the Kree.

you will find the makeup of that pago.
and In fact the makeup of any other

"nistory Will Care."
To the Editor or the Sun .sir. We
must admire the gallant defence nf
France, but was It not this Mime gallant
France which lnvaduel and devastated
Oermnnv under Louts XIV, and asala
under Napoleon I., whllo pursuing cam
paigns of aggression the like of which
the- world has seldom seen?
Was It not this same gallant France
which only recently dropped bombs
upon Carlsruho nnd Treves, during the
Corpus Christ! celebrations, killing and
Injuring many Innocent victims?
No doubt from a military point of
view these things are allowable and
even necessary, but why execrate nuth
acts when committed by one belligerent
and keep alienee about them when com
mitted by another?
Again, If such Intense Indlgnntlnn
was1 aroused by the execution of Minn
Cavell, a dangerous spy by her own
confession, why not feet and express the
same horror over the execution of the
Irish patriots, who were not spies?
If a sense of Justice becomes stunted
or extinct In a nation, that nation Is the
loser. A hundred years from now !t
will not matter whether America was
pro-Brltlsh or pro-German, but It will
always matter If injustice and false
witnesses hays allowed but one side to

THE CHAOS IN MEXICO.
If We Intervene tho Military leader
.Must Be Shorn of Ids Power.
To the Editor or The Sun Sir: Upon
the supposition that the United States
will be forced to take drastic action In
Mexico many people are eaylng that our
task "will be a constabulary Job." Just
what that means Is not properly under
stood by those who give expression to

befote them. It would bo folly to bcMttle
the magnitude of the task or to scoff nt
the difficulties to be overcome But
knowing them and nppralslng the ob
stacles at their proper value we should
be able to npprccltite the huge propor
tions of the operations. If once this
country gets started on the Job we shall,
of course, Jltdsh It and do It thoroughly.
Conditions In Mexico have become In
tolerable and something must be done to
restore order. Clearly the improvement
cannot come from "within." and henre
the wotk, In some fyrin, devolves upon
us. Cooperation of the other South
American republics would be desirable If
they could be Induced to Join. A com
paratively recent precedent for combined
Intervention Is found In tho lloxer up
rising In China, tin that occasion all
the great Powers. Including the t'nltcd ,
States, contributed soldleis. I
History tells us thnt disturbances like
those which beset our neighbor rn the j
suuin nro invaruuiiy i(iinrm"ii ;nm
In motion by a few Individuals who nre
not s a rule actuated by patriotic fervor
alone. The selfish element predominates.
Mexico has had more than a reasonable
share of these "leaders," who have ex
ploited that fair land on almost every
Before we can accomplish nnyth'ng
worth while In Mexico the official "mili
tary" element there must be shorn of Its
Hiwer for evil. Then our real task In
gins. To testoro order out of chaos .
one thing, to maintain It effectively Is
another matter. This Is especially trti"
of a tiopulatlon not wholly In sympathy
with the efforts and motives put In mo
tion on their behalf. I:ft alone that
Is. If not made restle'j by military free
booter the peon will not be difficult to
satisfy or to control : but the eletne. t
thnt Is sure to resent our InterxentP ..
will give trouble so long as the oppor
tunity In open for doing It.
A commission form of governmei t
would seem to be Ideal for that unhappy
- 'Untry. Should It be supplemented .
an advisory council nppolnted by o-.ln r
friendly nations many of tho grave
problems that a single executive head
must face would be eliminated. Until a
reasonable degree of governmental sta
bility can be shown Mex'.'o cannot hoi e

course time will be neeJed to bring th"
refurm nbout, nnd the more time used
In effecting It the poorer the financial
situation must be-come. Conlllcting
grant" nnd rex-ocatlorw of concessions by
the various Administrations slnco IVnz
help to make an awkwntd situation still
more difficult. It Is dcslnble to consider
these matters beeaus" they have a direct
relation to tho work we have to perform
if we nre forced to art.
Obviously it will take a long t'me tr
emxne.pate Mexico from her present
hrni loin. It will not do to perform the

To tub Kpitor oe Tile. Sin -Sir
Whether we shall have a serous con
flict Willi Mexico, eir tho tumble b..iv
over after somo slimp blows bv the
United Si, iles at tho barbaric aggressor,
makes little cllffereiicii la the futui.i at
titude, of this country toward Its art",
gant nei hbor. The United States must
define once for alt Us policy In the mat
ter of such meillfi-v.il methods of life
and government as Mexico has mam-fe-Hti-d
for years, W should bring our
moral and militaristic power to boar
upon the bandit spirit of Mexico, slnee
we maintain thnt the Monroe Doctrine
does not permit any outsiders to Inter
vene In our continental affairs.
The public opinion of this cniintrv his
sharply condemned Mr. Wilson's pnl y
In Mexico, particularly bis p.-rs slent
keeping to the moral principle that tho
people of a country should settlo their
domestic affair" themselves. The Amer
ican financial and tho European view is'
that Huerta should have been recognized
bv our own ns he was by European Gov
ernments. That President Wilson did
rot recognize Huerta Is proof that he
did not take the side of a common mur
derer of a constitutionally elected head
of the republic. His attitude In that re
spect was correct and Justified toy a high
moral principle. If President Wilson
had backed Huerta he would have lost
oil the historic prestige wlhch Is his
Hut President Wilson made a great
diplomatic mistake when ho began to
dl'ker wtli Carranza, hoping that Car
lanza in uht prove to be a suitable
leader. It was a foolish step on the part
ef our Government to withdraw the
troops from Vera t'mz, onco they had
landed there. It was a bad mistake to
In ten to Carranza and to let Carranxa
neiire n formidable army. But the
worst mistake was that this country did
not acTxigorously when Its citizens were
toitured aril killed by Mexican bandits,
who seemingly enjoyed Cnrranza's pro
tie Hon. A country like tin! United
Slates should never bavn yielded to a
barbarian who re-cognizes nothing but
phys.c.it force e'arranza nnd his Gov
ernment are a Joko to nny man versed
in diplomatic affa'r.s. His notes to this
country have ben from the first the In
sults ntnl stupid nrtoganci- of n man of
th bandit type. President Wilson should
have answered such notes with force.
Ily this I do turf mean that the United
Mutes should have declared war on Mex
ico, but It should have blockaded Its sea
I" rls nnd landed troops In places like
Tnmplco and Vera Cruz. Tamplco, with
11 rich oil wells, has been tho treasure
bouse of the Mexican leaders. It should
have been se z d long igo,
Anotle r mistake of the present Ad
m nit ration has been 'is tolerance of
iii rm in agitation and German backing
of Mexican bandits and of Carranza to
Involve this country In war. Villi was
openly aided by German officers with
noncy and nmtrtunltlon. The rifles that
were Kept here for tho members of the
S- htietze-n Vereln went either to Villa or
t I'arrnnzn. The German agents car
red on their propaganda openly. If
American citizens had done. In Germany
v at the German subjects and sympa
t' zers did here such Americans would
have- been executed long ago. To my
knowledge Mauser rifles with cartridge
vvero shipped from New York without
any difficulty to the Mexican border.
A gentleman told me not very long ago
that he knew n place near th" Mexican
border of this country where there were
thousands of boxes with army rtlles and
founds awaiting transportation Into
.Mixlco. I know another gentlemnn who
showed me proofs of German support of
Cnrranza's armies, If our Government

knew what was going on ami did not
tuko steps to stop It the matter Is still
The question ar)e, XYhat "hould we do
to establish order In Mexico? It should
be practicable for the United States to
manage Mexican affairs from Washing
ton. Kirrt of all, wo should treat the
Mexicans as we treat our negroes, our
Indians and our colonies; educate them
to understand and appreciate, the peace
ful means of life We should rule Mex
ico untt; her people ni able tn rule
themselx-es. We should stop the prevail
ing anarchy nnd i lear the country of ad
venturers I'ke Carranza. Diaz. Ilia and
the rest of them We "hould keep our
troops m Mex en city, in Vera Cruz and
Tnmplco and p iy them with the Income
fr'in ilexlcan ml wells, mines nnd fields.
As long as vv stand on the Monroe
Doctrine the rehabilitation of Me.xlco Is
our sacred duty. Intervention would not
mean conquest. It would mean help
ing another nation along the road of
c'vll.zatioii If we fill to do It now. We
shall be gul'ty before the world of
bpocrlsv and Injustice.
The first step should be the landing
of troops In all tl.e seaport towns, par
ticularly in Timptco and Vera Cruz. An
Ante -lc,,n p- lice should be maintained In
the leadlrg tr-id and life centres of the-
euntry. S-hoots and educatinml Ins'l
i tions sh iild be npened. We should

i'y and the value of their public Institu
tions. If we- se-nd out missionaries to
Africa and China, we should send the-iu
