In Extraordinary Session.
Tho necessity which causes today's
convocation of the Klfly-flftlt cotiKress
In extraordinary session Is clearly rec
ognized by till students of public, nf
fulrs. A Democratic tariff bill, passed
ostensibly to create revenue, has In the
two und oiu-lialf years of Its operation
produced u net cut rent deficit of over
Sl"o,000,000, not to speak of the addi
tional public debt contracted for rea
sons limine their chief source In this
tcarclty of Income. The bill would
have been obnoxious in many particu
lars had It fulfilled Its Intent to raise
sulllcient revenue, but the necessity for
Its repeal would not have been so ur
gent. Us failure to protect many In
dustrial Interests has fallen heavily
upon portions of the people, but Its ab
solute Inelllclency as it means of the
government's support leaves the whole
country crippled In a vital part und
makes imperative speedy relief.
Congress upon assembling today will
find prepared for Its consideration u
new lvvVimie measure drafted upon
the wise lines suggested In the presi
dent's Inaugural address. Its "control
ling principle" Is1 "zealous care for
American Interests and American la
bor." Its fundamental aim Is "to give
ample protection and encauruKoment
to -the Industries and the development
of the country." It has been drawn
with the wish that It may be "fair, rea
sonable, conservative and Just" and
that, "while supplying sulllcient reve
nue for public purposes" It may "still
be signally beneficial and helpful to ev
ery section and every enterprise of the
peole." it Is estimated that tho Ding
ley bill as now framed would. If en
acted, btlng Into the treasury $70,000,
000 more revenue each year than has
been returned on the average by the
Wilson bill; ut the name time, there
lias been a careful adjustment of Its
schedules in the direction of moderate
So carefully has this work been per
formed that It Is believed the meas
ure will Immediately commend Itself to
the favor of congress and reach the ex
ecutive for his signature within three
months. Prompt action not Inconsist
ent with prudence Is made desirable by
the depiessed condition of business and
by the universal wlf.lt of those engaged
In trade for a conclusion of the tariff
controversy. When It shall have been
taken there will remain no tenable ex
cuse In' politics or legislation for the
further hesitancy of capital to Invest
In new enterprise, and no artificial bar
rier to a steady resumption of prosper
ity. The special session of congress which
begins today will have other matters to
consider than revenue legislation; but
v. Ith the exception of the arbitration
treaty In the senate und the unllnlshed
appropriation bills Inherited from the
last congress, these may well be remit
ted to the calendar of the regular ses
sion beginning next December.
Hulled duwn, Tom Heed's advice to
congress this session Is to pass the tar
iff bill us soon as possible and go home.
It is wise counsel:
The New Congressional Library.
The eiowth of the United Stales In
wealth and Industry has been profusely
exploited. We now invite attention to a
dltterunt kind of growth also worthy of
iMiltunt mention. When Hon. Alns
worth U. Spotfoii, the present librarian
of congress, took hold of the manage
ment of the national library at Wash
ington, thirty some years ugo, thul In
stitution contained in the neighborhood
of T.OlU volumes, or about twenty-five
per cent, of the number of the volumes
now In the Scrauton Public library.
tin tho first of next July, when the
new congressional library building the
finest home of books in the world and
by many persons believed to be the
handsomest edifice ever built by human
hands Is put to use, it will contain
sh.-lves for l.'Jiw.OOO volumes and room
for the ultimate extension of this shelf
tupuclty to Include altogether about
9.uui),000 books. When it is recalled that
the largest collection of books now In
the woild that or tho Vatican library
In Home, which It has taken centuries
to accumulate contains only about
!2.GOu,uoo volumes, the magnitude of tho
new library at Washington will be more
readily comprehended. Into this treas
ure ltouso will literally bo drawn for
preservation and distribution the select
ed thoughts and the recorded wisdom
at mankind throughout its history; and
it will be reserved for tho nation which
leads civilization in material things to
wrest from an older continent piimacy
in tho centralization of Ideas.
In many ways tills latest American
achievement is the noblest of all. Jt Is
oi.e which will bo appreciated by per
sons of culture and discernment when
many more swaggering victories shall
have been forgotten. The man to whom,
mure than any other, credit for it is due

progressive American should read with

Another Currency Plan.
Of new currency propositions there Is
no end. The latest, and by all odds
the simplest and frankest, Is one pro
pounded by Congressman Charles N.
Fowir.r.of New Jersey, u prominent moin
Vcr of tho banking, and currency com
mlttee of tho last congress. Mr. Kowler
iropoDos that the national debt be ftind
rd into gold coin bonds beating Interest
at 2 per cent, malting a saving in In
tuest of HG.000,000 and retiring every
demand obligation of the government.
These bends would tlien serve as the
basis of u bonk circulation, which would
tultu the place of th goverunirnt notes.
It I further plodded in till plan that
national banks arc to be permitted to
issue notes 'tip to the full value of the
boniK and also against their nssots, an
under the old stale banking system.
The lax on bank circulation Is to be
reduced to a ijiuuit-r of 1 per cent.
Racli bank shall be required to redeem
Its own notes on demand In gold over
Its counter, the government also being
ultimately responsible. To secure the
depositors In these bunks against loss
each bunk Is required to pay a tax on
Its deposjls Into the treasury of tho
United States, which will form a fund
for tlie protection of depositors.
The theoretical beauty of this plan Is
apparent to the dullest mind, If It be
considered that all national banks arc
conducted upon strict business princi
ples, without fear or favor. Hut to put
Into any private hands, ns human na
ture now Is, the sole power to eontiol
currency Is something that Mr. Kowler
will find dllllcull to accomplish In u re
public. Hlghtly or wrongly.the thought
which dominates the American mind Is
Unit no concet n smaller than the United
Stutey government ought to be Invest
ed with such a powerful leverage upon
the people for their weal or woe. The
patty which goes before the people ad
vocating any such plan as Mr. Fowler's
will llnd this out.
The unanimous re-nomlnatlon of
Speaker Heed Saturday night by the
Hepubllcan caucus of the Fifty-fifth
congress Is not an unexpected but It Is
a deserved tribute to one of the bold
est and ablest parliamentarians of
model n times. It tenches anew that the
American people like men of gilt.
Words That Are Ciolden.
Some very sensible remarks upon n
subject of widespread Interest and vltnl
Importance are made In the last an
nual leport of the National Divorce He
form league, an organization founded
to promote the happiness and morals
of the home. The report Is written by
Itev. Samuel W. Dike, corresponding
secretary of the league, and unlike
some reformers. Secretary Dike does
not shoot his bullets Into the heavens.
After going over In detail the progress
of the lensue In matters of a routine
character, he pays extended attention
to various phases of the social evil.
He notes in localities a decline in
the birth rate and an Increase In pros
titution, and says to those who feel
commissioned to denounce these twin
vices: "A more careful study of the
domestic sources of these vices, and
the call to reform among those whose
social standing- and general good re
pute should lead us to expect would
most easily yield to better influences,
may well bo added to those denuncia
tions of notorious vice which are easily
made, but often of little practical
value. Social reform of all kinds goes
on best where efforts to remove the
vices of the degraded classes proceed
from those who are as much in earnest
about ttie less notorious vices of reput
edly good people, whose virtues should
make their reform the easier task."
Dealing with the question of homo
Inlluences, Dr. Dike says: "The sa
loon Is bad enough, but it Is a great
practical mistake to charge to It all
social vice and the evils of bad homes.
We must ask religious clubs and other
assemblies that are fond of heating
about the reform of the criminal r.
most important work to give proper
attention to the sources of crime and
the way men become cilinlnals. To re
duce the supply is as valuable refor
matory work as the effort to save the
actual cilminal. The home is the place
In which to begin to cultivate those vir
tues of reverence of constituted author
ity, of the love of truth and righteous
ness, of honesty, self-denial, and de
votion to high Ideals, which make the
foundations of society enduring, and
whose lack brings all we hold dear Into
peril, unci threaten the republic with
discoid and revolution. If ' rich men
would put a tenth of the money they
pay to save the country every four
years into the Improvement of the
home; If 'religious teachers, who feel
compelled to use their precious time to
treat these s:reut moral questions, as
they call them, would guide those who
hear them to give attention to the cul
tivation of the elements of tho great
political and sociul virtues in the home,
a better public conscience, u clearer
political mind, and less dlstuiblng po
litical campaigns would follow."
These, we repeat, are sensible and
timely words; trite, perhaps, but de
serving to be kept in mind ns guides to
conduct. There is far too much purely
professional reforming In this cottn
ery and fur too little of the real stuif of

The Railway Problem.
In the North American Review for
Mutch Lloyd llryce makes a timely de
fence of the country's railroads from
the charges of extortion that are now
adays so common, and asks for more
liberal treatment of the railway prob
lem by congress and the several states.
Some of the llgures presented by htm
First as to freight charges, he shows
from otllciul figures that between 1S7.1
and the present time the general ton
Idle rale for the United States has
fallen nearly CO per cent.; that the lake
and rail rate on wheat from Chicago to
New York has fallen at least 75 per
cent., and the ull-ruil rate not far short
of C3 per cent. On corn the full has
been C2'i per cent., and on provisions
fully SO per cent. Hero, in the opin
ion of Mr. Hryce, we have good evi
dence of reduction of freight rates for
the people of the country generally, and
the agricultural interests In particular.
He.eontencW that this decline in rates
Is fully in pace with the decline In
price of agricultural products. As to
general merchandise, tho charge per
ton per mile has declined from 3.0S
cents In. 1SC5 to ubout 7 mills In isac,
"nor," adds Mr. llryce, "do these aver
ages slvc an adequate Idea of rallwuy
progress In cheap transportatldn.Mueh
of the freight on our great trunk lines
Is carried ut halt ti cent per ton per
mile, which means the transportation
of one ton of freight two hundred miles
for one dollar. Indeed, the Pennsyl
vania railroad In lMi.l reported that It
carried 8,l7:'..21S,4o:i tons or freight on,
mile, at the rale of five and six-tenths
mills per Ion per tulle."
Coming now to passenger rat w wo
llnd the rule of decline In charges still
In operation, iilthotn.ii, as Mr. Uryce
points out, the constant dctuafids of
the American public for better and
more expensive ' accommodation and
higher sliced make the decrease loss
marked. The average passenger rate
has fallen from over three cents per
mile In 1870 to lees llinn two cents In
1891; In round figures, say a reduction
of one-third. "Relatively speaking,"
adds he, "our passenger rates are low
er when compared with those or for
eign countries much lower when den
sity of population and the character
of accommodation are considered. In
England, for example, the third class
trains carry passengers for a penny a
mile1 that Is, an Kngllsh penny, oV two
cents American money. The cost of
first-class traveling In Miigland, with
it population of Ml to the squat e mile,
will average double this, while litf per
cent, of the people In the United
States, population to the squate mile
only 21.:il, travel llrst-class at an aver
age cost, Including the unsettled ulcus
of the country, where population Is less
than three to the square mile, of two
cents per mile."
.These, with many other llgures of
equal Interest, are ptesented by Mr.
Uryce to show that a point has been
reached In the socialistic onslaught
upon capital onrl enterprise employed
In American railroads whete a halt Is
necessary If consequences of the ut
most seriousness are to be averted by
the general public. The railway sys
tems have been forced by competition,
litigation and hampering legislation
Into a corner. Seventy per cent, or
their stock and 17 per cent, of their
bonds are now non-productive to the
Investor. Klther the attack on the rail
roads must cease or the latter must
reorganize on a basis of lowered ex
pendltuie in labor and equipment. As
Mr. liryce well says:
"Unreiuuneratlve railways rates de
stroy prosperity and threaten public
welfare,. It Is a mistake to suppose
that this demoralization falls only upon
the capitalist. It affects every one, in
cluding even those who clamor loudest
against the railways. The ills arising
from unromuneratlve railway rates In
jure, first of all, the workman, as he Is
thrown out of employment or his wages
reduced. It injures, in fact, over one
million railway employes, or persons
directly employed by our vast sys
tem or transportation, and affects the
comfort and happiness of 4,000,000 hu
man beings. Then come the hundred?
of thousands who have invested in rail
way ecmitles, from whom, in many
cases, It takes away the Income. Again,
it reduces the ability of large holders
of these stocks and bonds to engage in
new enterprises, because it wipes out
tliel.- value and destroys so much live
capital or rather destroys securities
noon which capital could be borrowed.
The co-related or allied industries fol
low. Further reduction of rates can
not bo made without reducing the
wages of labor. When railways are
prosperous and remunerative, millions,
are expended in new equipments, im
ptovemcuts or plant, and betterments
nil along the road. And Justly, It may
be said, all trade and Industry, wher
ever railways penetrate, ate Injuriously
affected, and It Is this last wave of the
enlarging circle of distress that is most

"THE RAILWAY PROBLEM."
Fioin utl Altliie by Hon. Lloyd I'.ryce III
the North Auk-iIi-iiii llt-vlew for M.ti.i.
Few realize thut one mill, or one-tenth
ot one cent per ton u r mile additional
upon the tonnage of IStC. would have
j hided over $S0,mw,lnw additional Inronv-.
Thus the liillnlteslmiil fraction of a dol
lar, til., mill, Is all that stands between
the plosprtlty and Insolvency or rail
ways. Thut extra mill would give em
ployment to 200,003 day laborers for
twelve months, us they are badly mvili-d
on the tracks and toad-beds, In the y.ird.-i,
and shops of our great railways. It
would have given food and raiment lo
ficu.uiiO human beings In all parts nt the
country during tho year. The snvlng of
that mill merely added to the millions ot
some of the great Individual shippers,
i he farmer received no benefit from It,
for his product must go through the tem
ple bar or a shipper with "u rate." Ti.
small shipper gullied nothing, for he paid
the "wheUule late.'" It Is Important for
the public to realize that It would have
been far beltet to have entrusted this
f.'.ll lo the railways, not lor safe keeping;,

A glance ut the Individual accounts of

the Atchison, Topeka and Sunta IV Hall
way company to the leglslutuie or the
state of Kansas, It was shown that out
of every dollar the Santa Ke earned in
Kansas, it paid buck at once about 70
cents for labor and supplies und about
eight cents more tor tuxes. In 1S9.'i, the
net earnings In Kansas wore about $l,S0o.
(.n. out or which about $Sou,u0u was paid
Tor Kansas taxes. Surely the repiesentu
tlve or the Santa l'c weie .instilled In
asking what other Industry or biiMliifsM in
the state was taxed It per cent, or Its
Income. A similar memorial addrefSPd to
the .Missouri legislature last month by
the Chicago, Huiilngton and Qulncy r.ul
load brought out the fact that out or an
annual business of MO.OiO.Om), $21,000,000 was
used right In the state in expenses. These
are but typical cases; many others could
be given showing the innumerable burdens
pluced upon these properties by state leg
islators. The question or state ownership, as yet.
Is hardly discussed In the United States.
Those who appose it take the ground thut
government ownership will not reduce
rates, but thut It will deaden Invention
und Initiative. The rallwuy systems of
this country and England are undeniably
better exutnples of what private enter
prise can do than those who favor state
ownership can point to as illustrating
government control. In efllclency the ad
vocates of privnte enterprise hnve I he
best of the argument. In the United
States the railways run a train thirteen
miles nnnually Tor every man, womun
and child. In England the figure Is eight,
In Germany four and one-half, In Bel
glum three and one-half. In Australia,
where public control und ownership ,s
ubsnlute, where the rouds are operated
by the same nice us our own, they huve
not yet run trains at a speed equal to
eight hours' time between New York
und Boston. This affords, it seems to me,
u reliable indication of the probable efll
clency of state-owned railways. This plan
offers but few attractions and many ob
stacles. To ndopt it means to throw iuvj;
more that Is good than could possibly
