Mr. Costello's letter.
Whether as the result of short
sightedness, as he claims, or whether
because, with, the other construction,
he thought the means justified the end,
Mr. Costello, as the Democratic Na
tional Committeeman 'for the District,
has hid himself open to severe criti
cism for the wording of the circular
letter which he caused to be sent out
to civil service employes asking for
contributions to the Democratic cam
The letter, which set forth that Mr.
t Costello was authorized to solicit such
contributions, concluded as follows:
Every Democratic Congressman
will receive a detailed statement
after election of all those contri
buting having residence in his
Whatever the intent of this sen
tence, it is hard to believe that a
clerk receiving such a letter would not
construe it as a veiled threat of im
pending hardship to the one who did
not contribute to the Democratic
campaign fund. The pleasantest con
struction, that it indicated a possible
means of securing a material form of
gratitude from some member of Con
gress, differs only in the form.

the country in recent years have been
to remove the civil service as remotelv

looked upon as the surest method of
securing at once justice for the em
plove and efficiency for the govern

spirit of the civil service svstem.
It is reassuring to learn that the
Democratic National Committee re
fuses to permit any responsibility for
Mr. Costello's act to be shifted to the
Stamboul Will Remain the Turk's.
The Herald is so used to see its na
tional and international political com
ments borne out 13- events, that there
is no 'further need on our part for
self-congratulatory references. A ca
ble from London, that acknowledged
pro-Turk center (according to our
iew), confirms in positive language
that which we have argued and fore
casted since the Balkan war was be
gun, namely, that "Europe will not 'tol
erate' the entry of Bulgarian troops
into Constantinople." and that Russia
is in full accord with this veto. The
status quo can only be maintained now
by action, not by promises on the part
of the powers, who never showed a
disposition to keep them.
Only a threat by Roumania and
Russia, and the actual occupation of
the Bosphorus by British battleships
now can deter a victorious army from
entering Stamboul. British warships
alone cannot hinder it, owing to the
great strength of the Bulgarian land
forces and their close proximity to
the Moslem capital. We are not at all
surprise at the statement made by Sir
Edward Grey in the, House of Com
mons Thursday evening last that
"when the military situation in the
Balkans permitted, the powers would
take steps to insure a 'durable peace
(Disraeli's very words, so theatrically
spoken in the same chamber after the
treaty of Berlin had been signed) be
tween the belligerents."
If the reports prove true, the Bul
garians have de'feated a Turkish army
of 200,000 men and driven them to
Tchorlu in Thracia, immediately in
front of the Tchatalja defenses, the
last fortified protection of Constanti
nople. This would mean to revise the
world's estimate of the Turks as.
fighters, and the words spoken by Sir
Edward Grey in the House of Com
mons seem near enough at hand. This
means also a systematic massacre of
the Christians dwelling in that part of
Turkey by the whipped soldiers in
their effort to get away to safety.
And now, were we wrong, when
complaining that all this might have
been avoided if the signatories to the
Berlin treaty and the second Hague
conference had done as agreed and
not given the Turk a handle by which
to wield unmercifully his fanatic sword

, An Indiana judge has' decided that
a man "who has not registered is not
S legal voter, ana wenwre couiu noi
serve on the grand jury.
What is a 'legaf voter!
In our opinion he is a man twenty-
one years of age who has fulfilled the
conditions of residence and who has
not been disqualified. Let us argue this
out Only legal" voters are permitted
to register. This being the case, then
the act of registering does not make a.
man a legal voter, ior he was that
before the registration laws went into
effect Besides, the provision that a
juror must be a legal voter existed on
the statute books long before there
was a registration law. If the Indiana
judge is right a citizen will be a legal
voter at one time, but not at another.
After an election he will be a legal
voter, but failing to register prior to
the next election he would again cease
to be a legal voter.
We say that any man who may 'fail
to register does not lose his status as
a legal voter. He simply neglects to
take the steps necessary to enable
him to exercise, at a particular elec
tion, his rights as a legal voter. This
man out in Indiana was a legal voter
up to the very last moment that the
registration board was in session, and
after next Tuesday he will again be
a legal voter.
The matter is one of importance.
No doubt that unregistered men are
serving on juries. Should such juries
not be legal then their deliberations
and findings are also illegal, which
opens up a vista of incalculable legal
differences. The Indiana decision is
technical, for it fails to make a dis
tinction between legal and registered
voters. If there is such a distinction,
legal voters, whether registered or not.
would be'quahficd for jury dutj under
We say again: "Any man who 'can'
register whether registered or not
is a legal voter, for men who are not
legal voters minors or noncitizens
have no right to register at all.
The question is of importance. Why
not try to get a ruling on it from the
Supreme Court of the United States?
Common Sense and Religion.
The city destroys religion, savs a
scientist You cannot dodge the
church in the country without arous
ing the curiosity of inquisitive neigh
bors or anxious friends. In the city
there are no neighbors. You do not
know the man living in the apartment
adjoining vours. Therefore, the pro
fessor argues, jou can dodge the
church with impunity.
That many city people dodge the
church is true. But that does not neces
sarily make the city a destrojer of
religion. Religion is inherent fn the
city man as much a in the country
man. But the citv- man must have his
religion presented to him differently
than it is to the man in the rural com
munity. A preacher in New York detected
an apathy toward the church by work-
ingmen. What did he do to overcome
this? We read that he hired a labor
hall and began to preach religion in
terms of to-day. He made his sermons
a vehicle for expressing the needs of
the masses for discussing their prob
lems. And crowds flocked to this
humble church. A similar experience,
according to the same authority, was
had by a New York rabbi He no
ticed an apathy en the part of the
younger members of his race for the
old type of sjnagogue and began to
interpret the Bible in jargon of the
Ghetto. His free sjnagogue now com
mands a wide audience.
What the rabbi and minister in New
York did was to apply common sense
to religion. The Nazarene spoke to
Nazarenes and he ued the language of
Nazareth. The preacher and rabbi of
New York or Chicago or any city
must speak in the language of the
city, and from the viewpoint of the
The War and American Securities.
It is difficult for the average reader
to understand why American securities
held by Europeans are being thrown
upon the market at the present tfme.
and yet the situation is not abnormal.
Military activity in Europe by rights
should strengthen American stocks and
create a demand for them. And this
will be the sequel to Balkan disorder
if it continues for any length of time.
But the speculative European centers,
as soon as the situation along the
frontier became acute, were forced to
adjust themselves to the unusual con
dition which a state of war had pre
cipitated so suddenly.
Funds were needed to take care of
securities less salable than American.
The most valuable were thrown on the
market hence the home demand fell
off and the securities receded in value.
But the decline is only temporary.
Should the Balkan imbroglio continue
to menace the peace of Europe, Amer
ican securities will be the only securi
ties in the world to be regarded as
reasonably safe. Thousands of foreign
buyers will put all their-surplus money
into our stocks and bonds ,

To the Editor: Just a taw Unas in

Kansas' article on tha JWh regarding
pedestrians and their rights, which was
a very timely one and pertained to the
last sad automobile accident; one of man)
whleh have occurred far, too frequently
in our lair city.
How much longer are thef careless
owners and operators of automobiles to
be permitted to drive through our streets

pedestrians who are compelled to use our
How much longer will parenta have to
Pass hours of anxiety until their children
return from school or errands, all tha
time fearing that some careless opera
tor of an automobile may have run
them down? Why should those who have
charge of making and enforcing the
laws at the Capital, governing the safe
guarding of its cltlsens who must use
street cars and street crossings, be less
aDie to do this than in other cities?
Take Detroit for example, a eltv noted
for Its unusually large number of automo
biles. Every operator of an automobile
has to come to a dead stop when ap
proaching a cross street and 'give the
direction tney wsnt to go to the street
crossing officer before they are allowed
to cross. Furthermore, it Is a misde
meanor for sny operator of an automo
bile to pass a street car which has
stopped at a crossing to take on or let
on passengers without first coming to a
dead stop, and should he fall to comply
with this Ordinance and an accident sc
our, he Is severely dealt with. Re
member this is in a city noted for Its
large business and It does not seem to
work any hardship on the owner of auto,
mobiles. Until we have some such laws
we shall have constant repetition of
these sad accidents.
Let any one who doubts the necessity
of such laws stand ten minutes at any
of our street railway crossings or ride
ten squares on our street cars and notice
the frantic efforts of riedeTtrlans to
dodge the passing automobiles and the
numerous close .calls persons have had

While driving along Ninth Street-near
O Street Northwest, a boy of about tea
years stepped ont on the ear tracks
(where we were running), waved hta
hands, danced up and-down, and dared
ua to boss on. We had practically no
time to alow down, although running at
a sight or nine mile rate, because of
the abort distance from him, and Just aa
my 'husband was about to turn to the
right (a street car coming on the left
aide), the boy Jumped back to the right
side and it was almost a miracle that
my husband could control- the machine la

realising his narrow escape, began to
cry. Can yon Imagine what would have
happened had my husband turned?. On
the left we would have struck the car
perhaps have been killed and at least
traffic on the line would have been tied
up for some time, if no one on the street
car had been hurt Had my husband
turned to the right aa he expected to.
he would have caught the boy. Aa it
was, going straight ahead, he came very
near striking him.
' Do you not think there should be some
argument for the tormented autoist also?
He nays for his pleasure in every way.
Including three separate taxes, and for
this reason should have some right to
the street In New York the autos and
other vehicles travel at a rate some
times forty to six miles per hour and
the pedestrians must stand aside, it being
held that the street Is for vehicles and
the sidewalks are for the pedestrians.
Consider this speed and that observed
In Washington. I do not believe it right
for any autoist to run fast in the city.
In fact, I believe a ten-mile rate entirely
too fast In the downtown sections for
safety, particularly as regards children
and old people. What I should like to
suggest Is that parents Insist that their
children do not attempt any fun by run
ning In front of moving vehicles, and
that mothers with small children under
the age of discretion keep these In from
the streets except when accompanied by
older persons. I saw one little tot of no
more than two jears out on the street
not the sidewalk when our machine was
coming In one direction and another ma
chine was going in the other, and the tot
was bewildered. My husband stopped
and requested a passing woman to please
take the child in. I believe carelessness
on the part of parents In taking care of
their children Is more responsible for
the death of little ones killed in acci
dents than faults of the drivers of vehi
cles. I am a mother, and I know that
I could not risk my little one the way I
see manv- tots are risked every daj
Another thing which I hou!d like to
see Is some law whereby children delib
erately risking themselves and others
could be punished. Until such a law is
passed there Is no likelihood that the
nuisance I speak of will abate Why
don't some other autoists come forward
and explain why matters are not better?
Surely we are not altogether to blame,

'Wyoming Is a large, lonesome State,
sltusted In the middle of the great, un
crowded West. It has 97,0(0 square
miles divided Into thirteen counties
which are presided over by footsore and
weary sheriffs, whooften have to get
up in the middle of the night and ride
100 miles before breakfast to arrest a
malefactor In the other end of the com
munity. Wyoming has 150,000 people, many of
whom have 'to travel a week in order
to get to the nearest rural free delivery

criss-crossed with mountains and rivers
so wild that even a Republican Congress
wouldnt try to make them navigable.

with bears, mountain lions, wolves, ran-
thers. outlaws, and other noxious launa.

The capital of Wyoming Is Cheyenne,
which once had that kind of a disposi
tion, but is now mild and mannerly ex
cept on Frontier Day. Other towns
which can be discovered on a fair-s'zed
map are 1-aramle. Evanston. and Sheri
dan, none of which contain as many
people as a first-class steamship equipped
with lifeboats for 1.000. Wyoming can be
successfully crossed by mean of the
Union Pacific, but thousands of people
stop off each year to hunt for con Loss
and wind up by coaxing a river into an
Irrigation ditch and rajsirg alfalfa.
