' tho United States.
mt A Japanese resident of this city has
"Sfflj favored The Tribune with some trans-
HH( latlons from "The Shinalchl," of Nagya,
Hjl Japan, which, while not conveying any
Hi news not heretoforo sent by wire, dis-
.jjjl closes a patriotic unanimity among the
:H inhabitants of the Island Empire whioh
ls ominous for Russia. It shows that
H everybody ls anxious to take tho war
H bonds; the royal family has taken
S twenty millions of them, and all the
H banks bid for them. It mentions a
fl Turkish officer wljo is anxious to fight
H for Japan, but cannot be taken Into tho
army, as nil foreigners ore excluded;
ho will join tho Red Cross. Editorially,
the paper explains that Japan wa3
forced to fight Rusla for self-protection
and on account of the barbarities
and outrages committed by Ruslsans In
Manchuria, Japan "desires to punish
them as enemies to civilization." A com
plete turning of the tables there, neatly
done, and well deserved.
THE MATTER OF INSURANCE.
Some little time ago The Tribune pro
tested against the raise in Insurance
rates in this city, and had Somo contro
versy with the Insurance Press on tho
subject, the table presented by that pa
per being manifestly unfair to this city.
In lumping It In Indlscrlmlnatlngly with
tho wholo State.
Last Friday we made some further
suggestions on this subject, which havo
drawn forth a comment by Lewis B.
Rogers, Esq., as an Insurance expert,
which no doubt he Is. He seems to Im
agine that we object to the commissions
paid to tho Insurance agents, but noth
ing was further from our thoughts than
this, for we are glad to see them get as
much as they can from the companies
they represent. What they get ls In
some depree a compensation for the
large amounts of local money paid to
lnsuranco companies In the East and
abroad. So far from wishing to cut
down these receipts of the agents, we
would rather see them get more than
Another thing Mr. Rogers objects to
Is the Idea of Insurance by the State;
and he cites the loss by the State of
Wisconsin of Its capltol, Involving an
amount of $800,000, with but S6000 In Its
lnsuranco fund, tho case presenting a
net loss of $794,000 to be charged off to
But whether that is an argument
agalust the State Insuring its bulldingj
depends on how you look at It. The
State only began last year tho policy of
not Insuring its publlo buildings. If It
had begun that policy, say, when the
State was organized, and applied It to
all of Its public buildings, putting the
premiums into an Insurance fund, does
any one doubt that the State would now
havo a handsome sum to the good, even
after meeting the loss of the capltol
It Is a plain case, therefore, that so
far as this citation goes, the error may
not have been In the new policy adopted
but -in not having adopted It soon
enough. A mere casualty such as oc
curred is not a determining factor in
the settlement of a policy which must
take many years to prove is advanta
geous or not.
Mr. Rogers objects to tho suggestion
of the State carrying tho lnsuranco
risks, and especially to tho basis of val
ues tentatively suggested, of two-thlrda
of tho assessed value, for the amount
of the Insurance policy. He thinks that
this would be inadequate. Very likely
he Is right about this; the suggestion
was mado not as a finality, but only ex
perimentally; this part of the business
is but a detail, anyway. Whatever sys
tem of Insurance were adopted would
have to be on fair and sound business
principles, and If that basis should
prove inadequate, another would have
to be taken. But we should like to havo
tho general question of insurance by
the State discussed by the experts on
Its merits, and not put by as Impracti
cal because somo experimental detail is
Mr. Rogers seems to endorse the Idea
of keeping the Insurance money at
homo, which was our plan. He says:
"If you must keep your flro Insurance
money at home, do It right." That sen
timent wo approve, most heartily.
Yhatever Is done should bo done well,
and It cannot be done well and to the
mutual advantage of all concerned, un
less it Is done right.
It is certainly true that there are
largo sums of money sent abroad for
flro lnsuranco premiums. It Is certain,
also, that the large companies have ac
cumulated Immense surpluses out of
the revenues created by tho sums thus
paid by Utah and other communities.
The object we have In mind Is to ascer
tain if our part of that money cannot
be moro advantageously kept at home;
and to that point, as well ns to the
question of how best It can be done, we
The Trlbuno has received from The
Castle, Dublin, an appeal from Lady
Dudley In behalf of the fund for the
establishment of district nurses In the
poorest parts of Ireland. In many parts
of Ireland, no provision Is made for
nursing the sick poor In their own
homes; a tax for the purpose would add
to the burdens of an already overbur
dened people. Tho only relief must be
from voluntary subscriptions. During
the past year sufficient money was col
lected to establish and endow eight
public nurses, all of whom will soon be
at work. But applications for old come
in constantly, and In some cases the
need is extreme. The appeal Is made to
the Irish people in America" especially..
Donations may be sent to Lady Rachel
Dudley personally, or to the secretary,
the Bank of Ireland, marked, "Lady
Dudloy's Fund for District Nurses."
A Russian report Is that what the
British are after In Tibet is gold; that
Tibet Is in fact a second California,
This ls envy and malice combined; for
Russian agents have been active in
Tibet for the past four years, and the
Czar's gorgeous presents to the Dalai
Lama, a whole camel caravan of them,
aro not forgotten. But In no part of
the Russian reports was there the
slightest reference to any mines,
whether of gold or any other metal.
The RiisalanB were preparing to ex
ploit 'that coilntry for political pur
poses, and are chagrined that they can
not pursue their policy, being otherwise
fully occupied. But they can make up
their mlndato one .thing as an absolute
fact; that If there are rich gold mines
in Tibet, and the British find them,
then British sovereignty there ls al
ready as good as assured.
It ls certainly to bo hoped that the
troubles in Colorado may tako on a
form much modified from recent occur
rences. Running men out of town,
warning them not to come back, many
of them being good and roputablo citi
zens, ls bad work. And still worse lu
the prospect of fighting to keep men
out of town or to force men's way Into
Surely there must be some public au
thority to regulate matters of this kind,
and prevent tho savngo antagonisms of
tho different classes or sympathizers
taking the form of battle and bloody
reprisals. It Is a reproach to the Stato
to have these things even probable,
much more to havo them occur.
Governor Pcabody won the respect of
tho business and Industrial capital of
the State by his energetic moves when
the destruction of the mines at Crlpplo
Creek and Tellurldo was threatened,
though ho marred his action somewhat
by the uncertainty of the wording of
his proclamations. Still, on the whole,
he did well.
But the withdrawal of the militia
was followed by sharp conflicts, which
showed either that their work was not
thorough, or else that there was a new
set of disturbances of even more acute
antagonism than had existed at the

As the dispatches read, our neighbor

to the State to have such an impression
SCHURMAN ON RACE DETERIORATION.
President J. G. Schurman of Cornell
says that tiger Is still In the blood of the
American. That ls what the Spanish
forces In Cuba thought in the late war;
it Is what Agulnaldo thought, and his
erstwhile following; and the Americans
lost nothing by that opinion. A little of
the tiger Is not a bad thing at times,
though It won't do to let the tiger get
While thus the tiger In the blood Is
good (or at least It Is good for an enemy
to think it Is there). It is . not good to
have this tiger manifested to our own
detriment nor to have it destroy our
own safeguards or institutions.
It Is not good to have a tigerish law
lessness, that leads to lynchlngs; the
courts must bo respected, and their de
crees respected. Tiger In the blood ls
no excuse for lawlessness, nor for the
awful crimes and atrocities that grow
out of lynchlngs.
It ls not cood to havo a tigerish
treachery In the blood, which causes the
doing of things expressly forbidden by
law and decent American sentiment, to
say nothing anent this lawlessness be
ing a positive violation of good faith.
It Is not good to have the predatory
tigerish traits of the get-rlch-qulck
schemer, who betrays his own con
science aa well as those who confide In
him. And many more things are not
good, which have this samo tigerish
brand upon them.
President Schurman, we think, is
quite right in saying that he does not
think the deterioration of American so
ciety and sentiment ls due to the non
tcachlng of religion In the public
schools, nor to tho Immigration o our
shores, though we believe that the latter
has had some unfavorable Influence
Ho thinks, on the contrary, that there
Is a certain race deterioration about it,
which may be true. If so, one of two
things- must follow, either that the
standard which he ls measuring by 13
out of true, or else that there has been
a change from somo obscure cause
which ho has not Indicated.
Let us help him a little. Is it not from
the relaxation of parental authority and
the growing up of boys In comparative
. idleness, with their wild tendencies less
restricted than formerly, and their drift
ing Into recklessness and disregard of
the ties that bind our society in proper
limitations, and of the rights of the pub
lic and of their neighbors?
We believe that this condition Is so
general as to havo had an appreciable
effect on our public life; that It Is the
cause of more race deterioration than
any other one cause that can be named.
We havo called attention heretofore
to this evil here in this city. It ls seen
more or less In the mirror of tho set
tlements of the State, as held up by our
exchanges. We see It elsewhere, all
over the country In fact; and It Is high
time that the old-fashioned parental
vigor and discipline were again called
Into play to stop thlB cause of "race deterioration."
No more pitiable object has been seen
for a long time than Brlstow In his
twistlngs, turnings and evasions In his
testimony before the special committee
which Is investigating his charges
against members of the House of Rep
resentatives. He alleged grave misde
meanors and dishonorable conduct
against Representatives, but ho puts In
the claim that his languago was alway3
respectful, and it ls wrong to charge
him with abusing them or his position
and privileges! A rare bird ls Brlstow,
of the sort that fouls Its own nest, and
then scraping the offal Into other nests,
cries out, "Behold how clean I am, and
how filthy are those other chaps!"
ASPHALT FROM SUGAR BEETS.
From tho Detroit Journal.
They now make cattle feed and alco
hol In quantities to astonish a Ken
tucky distiller and several other minor
by-products from the residue left after
tho white sugar hn3 boon extracted
from tho Michigan sugar beet, and now
It Is proposed to utilize It In the man
ufacture of a new variety of asphalt
At ono stage of the progress which
the dirty, wrinkled beets make from
one end of the long factory buildings to
the empty XXX sugar barrels waiting
at the other, they are mixed with a
preparation of lime. This lime per
meated with other oubstances Is, of
course, later extracted, and heretofore
this form of residue has chiefly been
used ns a fertilizer, when used at nil
According to the esteemed Alma Rec
ord, however, it has now been found
that when this residue, consisting of
lime and other things, Is mixed with a
certain other residue remaining from
the distillation of petroleum, an aa
phaltic preparation ls formed adapted
to a variety of purposes. Somo
day they'll be making dyestuffs and
sleeping potions and axIegreasQ and
corn cures from 3ugnr beet residue In
short, almost as many by-products as
are now made from coal tar and other
things remaining after tho manufac
ture of Illuminating gaa.
