'"Although The Herald has devoted
cinsirable space to the Balkan situa
tion to oblige the "many readers" who
ask for information, we shall once
more try to coer the question as
thoroughly as the small space of the
editorial columns will permit.
i. The cause of the present war
between the Balkan States and Greece
on one side, and the Ottoman Empire
on the other, have been discussed often
and are well known. The leading
grievance against the "Sublime Porte '
u that it countenances systematic mas
sacres of its subjects of the Christian
faith. This is true enough, for we all
remember the Armenian outrages, the
heart-rending descriptions of Miss
Stone, the missionary, and that the
Christian powers merely looked on.
2. Of course the, treaty of Berlin
bears upon the subject, nothing else
does so pre-eminently, but it does not
confer upon the Balkan States the
right to declare war upon Turkey, for
the simple reason that while the
Sublime Porte no doubt has iolated
its promises of reform in its dependen
cies populated by Christians, the signa
tory powers to that treatjr also have
failed to comply with securing to Tur
key the rights guaranteed to her by
that v.ery treaty in return for the re
forms promised. The Powers have
not asked or consented to the Balkan
States declaring war upon their com
mon enemy, but how could they pre
sent it unles by sending armed forces
into the four allied nations, and Riving
the world the spectacle of seeing Chris
tian slaughter Christian for the sake
3. The Balkan States do not have
to declare their independence with or
Srithout the consent of the signatory
Powers, because Montenegro has been
jndependent of Turkish suzeranity for
rrnniries. Bulearia made itself inde
pendent when Prince Ferdinand of
Coburg. their ruler, proclaimed him
self Czar of Bulgaria some years ago.
Roumania, as we all know, has been
made independent years ago by com
binine the Grand Duchies of Moldavia
and Wallachia into a kingdom ruled
over by a Hohcnzollern Prince. In re
spect to Servia, which is most exposed
lo Turkish raids, that little country's
internal troubles up to recently hae
kept her, while independent, from be
coming much of a factor in the near
4. The signatory Powers to the
Berlin treaty were Great Britain, Ger
many, France, Russia, Austria-Hungary,
The Sublime Porte, Montenegro
(and the Balkan States by proxy).
Of the engagements entered into
with the great Powers in 1878, most
of which, by the way, remained a dead
letter from that day to this, article 23
all along has been the bone of conten
tion in the Treaty of Berlin. The stipu
lations of that clause were the price
paid by the Sublime Porte for the re
tention of its sovereignty oer those
Balkan provinces that previously it had
ceded. The great European dailies
which now say that Turkey has shown
a contemptible neglect to comply with
her solemn engagement under that ar
ticle and that the Christian inhabitants
for thirty-four years hae suffered by
that failure, these European dailies,
with all due respect to them, are talk
ing at random. For had the European
concert not been satisfied by its own
neglect to see that this clause of the
Treaty of Berlin, which guaranteed
to Turkey certain perogatives, were
enforced, would the Christian nations
have stood by quietly and allowed the
terrible Armenian massacres, over
which the world stood aghast?
We are the last nation to refuse our
sympathy to our Christian brethren
who have risen in arms to go to the
rescue of their kinsmen in Albania and
Macedonia. Nor shall we blame them
if they decline this time to lay down
their arms merely because the Sublime
Porte again "promises'' reforms.
It may seem strange to our readers
that we are not preaching fire and
sword and theJjTioly war," but "two
wrongs never made a right;" and only
by taking away from the Ottoman
government all possible excuse for not
instituting the reforms promised so
long, the Christian rations will have
the morel and legal right to interfere.
Were the circumstances different, tjjey
should have done to long ago, Eng-
lind above all!
If the gentlemen who have sent The
Herald this query will look at the edi
tion of last Monday lhey will perceive
-why, in our estimation, the present
war will end as all uprisings between
the Bilkan people and the Turks have
ended since the Treaty of Berlin. Let
us say, for argument's sake, that the
allied forces will be Trictorious and
drive the Turks back into Asia Minor.
If so, who is to occupy Constantinople?
Our article referred to tells why
neither of the great Powers can con
sent to one of them holding the key
to the Dardanelles, the Aegean Sea,
and the Levant, meaning the key of
the Suez Canal, the short route to In
dia and Australia! While the allied
Balkan States have a perfect right to
do as they have done, 'for the sake of
humanity and their religion, while
every civilized nation sympathizes with
them, yet not so much Turkish atroci
ties, or the massacres of Christians,
but Constantinople, is the key to the
Events will prove our contention.
The Pennsylvania Progressives.
The progressive movement in the
Republican party had its birth in a
revolt against high protection. If there
had been no Payne-Aldrich bill, there
would have been no break this year
in the Republican party. If that bill
had received the solid Republican vote
in Congress we should have had no
insurgents. Even Beveridge "insurged"
on the tariff. He was convinced that
"Mary of the Vinedad Cottage" was
too heavily taxed for the benefit of
the Massachusetts woolen mills, though
it must be confessed that he was not
greatly shocked over the steel duties.
The formal spilt came over the tariff.
And now it is proposed that in
Pennsylvania the Progressives shall
'eliminate from consideration all poli
cies" except the tarut, on which the
two factions of the, party are invited
to get together behind the Progressive
leader. The theory is that Taft can
not win in Pennsylvania, and that
therefore they should rally to the sup
port of the party, the leaders of which
have ..denounced the President os a.
"receiver of stolen goods." It is to be
noted further that the Progressives
are ignoring the tariff question. The
issue which the late Senator Dolliver
did so much to make sharp and clear
has been practically abandoned.
The white flag is up in Pennsylvania.
All will be "forgiven such is the plea
if the Republicans will only vote for
the candidates of the Progressive
party. Trust regulation, the attack on
representative and constitutional gov
ernment, the direct election of Sena
tors, Presidential preference primaries
are all thrown overboard. "We elimi
nate from consideration all policies,"
says the Philadelphia North American,
"except the tariff."
So low has the Progressive cause
fallen in Pennsjlvania. The cry Is
"Vote for the Progressive candidate."
Principles except one count for noth
ing. At the Head of the Nations.
O. P. Austin, chief statistician of the
National Bureau of Commerce, has
prepared some statistics of the growth
in wealth in the United States front
1870 to 1910, as follows:
In finance the United States leads
the world. We produce more of the
money metals than any other nation.
As a result of this and our favorable
balance of trade the United States now
has more gold and a greater total of
money than any other country in the
world. Experts estimate that some
what indefinite term "bankine power
as being greater in the United States
than in any other country, while their
estimates of total national wealth place
the United States at the head of the
list of nations. The census figures of
wealth in the United States put the
total of 1870 at $30,000,000,000, while
the total at the, present time approxi
The term wealth as used by Mr.
Austin does not mean credit, but actual
values for use, such as cultivated
lands, houses in and out of cities, fac
tories and their machinery, railroads,
telegraphs, ships and boats and all the
products of the soil, of the factories,
of the forests, and of the fisheries.
These are all material things, which,
combined with power evolved from
waterfalls, from the combustion of fuel
and physical strength of draft animals
furnish man with necessaries, the con
venience, the comforts, and luxuries of
This is the only real material wealth,
and when there is an outcry for money
it is because money In good times will
buy all this. But money also will buy
social and political influence and power,

The "Why" in Criminology.
Before the Illinois State conference
of detention and correction Dr. Healy,
director of the Psychopathic Institute
of Chicago, stated that criminalism in
this country means a daily loss of about
$2,000,000, and that in penal, reforma
tory, and detention institutions at pres
ent the different States of our Union
are handling a good deal more than
100,000 persons, while something like
five times that many offenders are
abroad and at large to the detriment of
Criminologists, despite diligent study
of the question, thus far have failed to
tell us why, in spite of repeated pun
ishments and all sorts of admonitions,
men go on with their offenses until
finally they become members of that
group which menaces society constantly;
namely, the confirmed criminal.
According to the doctor all these
practically begin their career of sin as
children. In his opinion probation sys
tems and reformatory institutions will
do but little good unless there is in
telligent appreciation of the search for
and treatment of causes. Get at-the root
of the evil, recommends this savant,
and things will, heg'uv to look more
hopeful in this direction. '
But Efr. Healy' also fails to' tell us
the means by which this "getting "at
the root" is to be accomplished success
fully. " -

STANDS ON PLYMOUTH ROCK.
Sflsannrl lien Is Out for the Na
tional Eire? Championship.
At Mountain Grove, Mo., Is a Plymouth
Rock hen that has laid 260 eggs In the
last eleven months. She is out for the
national championship. Twenty-eight
other contestants are In the race. Sev
eral of them are going along at a pret
ty good pace. The Plymouth Rock, how
ever, is leading by what seems to be a
safe margin. Her partisans bellee that
on November 1. when the contest ends,
the Plymouth Rock will finish a winner.
This hen. It may be pointed out, de
serves to win. She didn't get off to a
flying start. Six or seven of her com
petitors darted away from her at first.
More than one supercilious glance was
cast In her direction. But she did not
despair. With a spirit as firm as the
immortal rock whose name she bears
she went resolutely on laying an egg
Just as often as she could. Slowly her
patient determination began to be re
warded. Steadily she gained upon her
haughty antagonists. Finally she over
took one of them. Then she passed an
other. The erstwhile cackles of those
haughty dames changed to squawks of
anxiety. Not a trace of hauteur, though,
in the Ylymouth Rock's demeanor. She
went right along the awkward but ef
fective tenor of her way. Sullen envy
and malicious gossip disturbed her no

There may or may not be a moral In

there are 260 eggs in the performance.

Illiteracy In the District has decreased,
the Bureau of the Census reports. There
were in 1310 but 13,512 Illiterates, repre
senting 4.9 per cent of the population of
ten ears of age and over, compared with
8 6 per cent In 1S0O. The percentage
among colored people Is 13.5.
Liken Iss males are "Picking un." In
1900 the ratio of males to females was 90
to 10O, while In 1910 It was 91 S to 100.
Among the colored people the ratio of
males to females Is only 82.2. The total
number of males oer twenty-one years
old in 1910 was 103,761.
Forty Per Cent Single.
In the population 15 years of age and
over, 40.2 per cent of the males are
single and 34.5 per cent of the females.
The percentage married Is 3.8 for males
and 4S.S for females; and the percentage
widowed 5.2 and 15.7, respectively. The
percentages of those reported as di
vorced, 0.4 and 0 6, respectively, are be
lieved to be too small, because of the
probability that many divorced persons
class themselves as single or widowed.
That the percentage single Is so much
smaller for women than for men Is due
largely to the fact that they marry
younger. Thus 7 9 per cent of the fe
males from 15 to 19 years of age are
married, as compared with 0 8 per cent
of the xnaloa; and 40.7 per cent of the
females from 0 to 24 years are married,
as compared with 21.2 per cent of the
males. In the next age group. 25 to 31
ears, the difference largely disappears.
In the age group 33 to 44 the percentage
married Is greater among the males,
while In the age group 40 and over It
very greatly exceeds that for females.
That there Is a larger proportion of
widows than of uldnwers may Indicate
that men more often remary than
women, but, since husbands ore gener

relationship Is tn fact more often broken

of the wife.
