SILLY OLD MAN
When President McCurdy of the Mutual was mailt?
to state his ldeaa of the function of a groat life insurance
company the result was amusing Indeed, until indignation
crowded out the smiles. Mr. McCurdy said to the Inves
'"There has been a great mistake made about the real
province of life Insurance companies in these later years.
Voopie have been led to believe that the main purpose
was to niako money tor Its policyholders. In my view
that is not the purpose of such companies. They are
eleemosynary. When a man insurts In a company he
should take Into consideration the fact that he has en
tered a great philanthropic concern that Is In duty bound
to spread Itself, even though this growth prevents him
from realizing as much as he expected."
Commenting on this, the Denver News says: It Is
truly unkind to force men of privileged position in the
realms of high finance to express their ideas for public
perusal without those ideas being first edited by trusted
secretaries, more familiar with the popular ways of
This old man, with his years of untroubled control
f a great Insurance company on a $150,000 salary, has
been so secluded from the selfish old world and its sor
did standards that he cannot realize that the puMic, es
pecially the. policyholding public, cannot see the beauty
of his conception of a life Insurance company as a charit
In his she.tered life it has seemed the most natural
thing in the world that this society should exist to give
1100.000 salaries to his sona and equally beautiful chari
ties to his sons in law and support whole companies of of
ficials and employes all In the family as an outlet for
the stream of gold that poured its charitable wealth into
How narrow, worldly and self-seeking must It seem
to this kindly family man that the policyholders should
wish personal dividends instead of looking gladly on at
the happiness the premiums were securing:
Then, how lacking in public spirit are these policy
holders not to rejoice In the good done by the widespread
distribution of funds made through political channels!
Think of the many made happy by the drippings from
the one charity in its multiform divisions of the legislat
ors, the lobbyists, the campaign orators, the ward heel
ers and others too numerous to mention, to say nothing
of their families who make merry, all because they nre
the beneficiaries of the benevolent dollars paid in by the
policyholders all over the world.
Truly, the delicate moral sense and unselfish altru
ism cultivated by the secluded life of a frmzied finance
president is beautiful' to contemplate!
USE. PLAIN SPEECH
A high authority has said that education In Us last
analysis consists of proper definitions, while yet another
has defined definition itself as reference to the embrac
ing genus with enumeration of necessary differentia.
However one may take either statement, none but the
guilty will deny that a pressing need of our day and
country is a return to the proper use of words, In order
that things may be called by their right names and thus
be regarded in their true light.
It is customary to speak of "higher finance," using
the expression as a term to conceal the real character
of the most tremendous schemes of fraud and embezzle
ment ever known In the -history of the world. So, we
apeak of "graft" in office as though It were something
different from the crimes defined by statute, and for the
punishment of which penitentiaries have been establish
'., A return to the plain old Anglo-Saxon terms would
uiku Bimpiuy mailers ana improve ine worm muiogpuere.
When a man makes his millions by fraud or law eva
sion or bribery we hesitate to call him a common thief.
But that Is his proper name. When an insurance presi
dent takes the money of the policy holders and gives it
to the treasurer of a campaign fund we are slow to write
him down as embezzler. What else is he? When a trust
fund is committed to the keeping of a man who uses it
not for the good of the trust but for the good of himself
and relatives do we say he is guilty of obtaining money
under false pretense? When a man falsely swears con
cerning the value of the property ho makes returns of for
taxation do we cail him a perjurer? No! A new nomen
clature of "business'' terms has grown up. Men who
steal millions have simply "departed from strict regular
ity." Men who give away other people's money for po
litical purposes are regarded as "care-takers of the peo
ple's Interests" and even as "benefactors of the country."
Even the term "graft" robs crime of Its harshness. The
wide use of the word obscures its real significance. It
offers itself as a sort of mantle of good natured toler
ance for ordinary thieving.
The only way to prevent increase of the present evli
1 is not only to pNinlsh the evil doers, but to speak of their
deeds by their true names to paint the devil as black as
. he really Is.
IT WAS GIVEN AS PRESENT
TO NEWLY MARRIED COUPLE
From Chicago Newt
They got it as a wedding gift,
A kindly and considerate boon,
Designed their hearts to please and lift
At waning of the honeymoon.
Ah, generous friend! Though good your
Your act of kindness makes us moan;
You little know the woe you brought,
In giving of that gramophone.
They start It up at early morn.
Some where round half past fi o'clock,
And thence till breakfast time its tones
Are blaring o'er the outraged block;
And, lest we might not fully hear.
They open have their windows thrown.
'Twere sad for pious ears to hear
What's said about that.graniophone.
When silence reigns and a.l rejoice
That something's broken or gone wrong,
That libel on the human voice
Bursts forth again In strident song.
At strains of raucous vaudeville
The boldest shrink, the bravest groan.
Till longing came to maim or kill
The owner of that gramophone.
Hark! There, ye gods. It goes again! "
Give me my hat and let me g!
1 cannot stand that grim refrain,
I can't endure those notes of woe.
In desert cave or lonely shore
I'll dwell In peace, remote, alone.
Rather than bear It, o'er and o'er,
The torture of that gramophone.
THE PLACE OF THE CHURCH
IN THE HIGHER EDUCATION
Edmund F. Jamci in Chicago Tribune
PEOPLE TO BLAME
"Lead us, O Public, not Into temptation" should
have been the daily prayer of N. C. Dougherty, of Peoria,
Dougherty was so popular that he was entrusted for
five years with the entire school funds of his city. As
superintendent of schools he spent the money and as
president of a bank he 'kept" the money. Now he is in
Jail. Plainly enough ho is deserving of the severest pen
alty. Plainly enough his fall Is of his own volition. It is
also plain that Dougherty's ruin is the fault of the pub
lic. He is a 'ise of excessive confidence. He was trust
ed too me He was confined n too long.
V1' iany years there was no accounting. Dougher
ty' -it the money as ho would. His accounts wtre not
auuued. His cash was never counted. So strong was be
is the public esteem tlia any suggestion of looking into
the schixd funds was dismissed as unnecessary. "Dough
erty Is all right," said everyone. Doughertv was not all
right. But if he had been the public imposed loo much
confidence in him. No man, however upright, should be
taken entirely for granted. The only safe way to treat
any public official is to require an accounting of his
funds at stated intervals. And this should ! required tin
less for the man's sake than for the sake of the public.
Jui-t how much strain of temptation any man will bear is
Confidence Is a beautiful thing. Modern business
could not be conducted without confidence. But confid
ence especially where public officials are concerned
should always be tempered with discretion and strict su
pervision of accounts.
First of all, it is perfectly evident that this country
never will permit the church as such to control in any
vital way, through its own ecclesiastical organs, the
higher education of the community. There Is a growing (Garcia,
recognition of the fact that, however much modern socie
ty may owe to the church in the past for Its efforts on
behalf of higher education, and however beneficial its ac
tivity may be in the future In behalf of the same cause,
we never shall permit church authorities, priest or
preacher, Catholic or Protestant, Jew or gentile, to dic
tate to the American people what the form or function
of its scheme of higher education shall be.
On the other hand, 1 believe it is equally true that
the American people will not in any time within our pos
sible prelsion consent to an abosiute monopoly of the
field of higher education by the Institutions of the state,
such as is accorded in nearly every country of continent
al Europe today. In other words, we are destined to
have In my opinion, as we have now In the field of high
er education, three distinct types of institution: The
state supported, state controlled university, expressing
one side of the life and work and aspiration of the com
munity, an absolutely indispensable and ever-increasing
element of power and Influence In the system of higher
education; in the second place a non-sectarian, undenom
inational private Institution, devoted solely to the same
worH as the state institution, occupying, however, as
time goes on, also a position of supplemental" and sec
ondary importance to the system of state .universities;
and, finally, a system of colleges aud universities in Im
mediate connection Vith the church as such wdth the
different denominations as such though we may hope
there will be some diminution in the numlier of such de
nominations, and, consequently, a simplification of the
system of education itself. But we shall have a system
of schools supported by controlled by, to a certain ex
tentand the outgrowth of the same underlying force
which builds up the church; these Institutions express
ing another side of our national life equally necessary,
equally fundamental, to those represented by the other
classes of institutions.
' If we were to close all the schools supported by the
church, we should deal an almost irremediable blow to
the system of higher education. Consequently, in the
Interests of the community Itself pure aad simple, with
no reference to the church at all, it would be a serious
Injury to the interests of higher education if the church
should no longer take that active and keen interest in it
which has been characteristic of the church from the
The church should continue this attitude of Interest
and support to higher institutions because, even if the
state were willing and able financially to undertake the
function, to occupy the field in a satisfactory wray, It still
does not llo in the Interest of the community that the im
portant interests of the higher education should be en
tirely in the hands of the state. Even if we approve, as
I do, of a state supported system of education from the
kindergarten through the prfessional school; even if we
believe, as I do, that the state should support such a
chain of institutions by public taxation for the benefit of
the community, It is still true that the exclusive domina
tion of higher education by the state Is not in the inter
ests of a free people. We Hee today in all oounlrles of
continental Europe an illustration of the field of higher
education by the state, which means, of course, by the
state government; and Germany affords a most striking
example of a great and powerful nation which has ac
cepted the principle of state control of university educa
tion to the exclusion of church or private co-operation.

A. tl. Pohl, of Phoenix, Arizona, U now engaged in
harvesting an unusually large crop of dates. He has
made no estimates yet of just how large the crop will be
when all gathered, but it Is larger than has ever before
liecn raised on his place and the quality of the fruit is
unsurpassed. Some of the trees will yield no less than
400 pounds of dates and most of them are bearing. They
are now just in their prime, many of them being fourteen
years old, arid are bearing larger crops each year. Mr.
Pohl, .from bis experience, has calculated that an acre of
dates under ordinaty circumstances will net the owner
$l,Si)0 a year. His crop finds ready market at cents

Why Mining U Neglected.
Tlie mining industry in New Mexico ha.-i been lie
gbcu d because (,f Hie indifference of the bllsinss men.
New Mexico is not blessed with the kind who open min
ing sections and push for the development of the natural
lei-ounes of a country. How many merchants in Albu
querque aie staking prospectors, or developing a mining
property? In Colorado towns the merchants are all alive
to the importance of opening up new country, and they
are always represented in the field by prospectors. Colo
rado is no better mineral country than New Mexico, only
those in business in Colorado are more enterprising ami
are building up the country. The foregoing in the In

of New Mexico, but there is mute truth than fiction in
