It is our custom to call Washington "the District,"
and age and habitation have turned a certain glow
Df santiment upon the homelier title, but yesterday
. this city was so pleasant under the autumn sun and
0 blessed in its wide, calm places that only its
official designation seemed suited to its dignity. For
not Berlin with all its efficiences, and not Paris with
its tired sophistications, and not LonJi with its ten
hundred years of custom and stability, can give to
the eye the restful spaciousness of Washington or
touch the mind with such a sense of self-dependent
In every other notable capital of the world the
soldier is an intimate presence; behind the friendly
policeman there rests the inevitable bayonet. With
those places peace is largely an expedient persuaded
Into its even ways by the knowledge of neighborly
rifles; with us it is but a part and a test of our democ
racy. So it is that we may not only be proud of
the breadth of our highways, but also of our way
of ruling our lives and getting through with the
business of the day. And in that view Washington
has a significance that the habitual "District" is too
small a term to measure by.
THE tATHTUB PATENT DECISION.
It is a pretty safe rule that when the Supreme
Court hands down an "epoch-making" decision, no
epoch will be made by it. The decisions that mark
great departures are likely not to be recognized at the
moment. Those that, at the time, seem flatly to lay
down some revolutionary rule, are apt to be modified
later so as to diminish their significance.
Last spring in the mimeograph case the court
held that the owner of the patent on a mimeograph
machine may require the user of that machine to
buy from him, the patentee, all paper and ink used
on the machine. This was hailed as creating a
terrific new power in the patentee. It was assumed,
all too hurriedly, that the same principle would be
Stretched to cover the shoe machinery, electrical, and
some other combinations that are based on patents.
But now the court proves, in the bathtub case,
how erroneous was the expectation then aroused. It
is held that the patentee nay not control or restrict
the business in articles produced by a patented ma
chine or process.
The bathtub combination allowed makers of enam
eled ware to use, under royalties, certain machinery,
on condition that an agreed schedule of prices be
maintained on the product, and that distributing ter
ritory b apportioned among manufacturers. All this
rgreement is wiped out by the present decision; the
owners of the patents on machinery may impose no
conditions on the sale of articles made bv it.
If this newest decision is understood, it would
wprk, in connection with the mimeograph decision,
in this fashion:
The owner of patents on shoe machinery, for il
lustration, would not be permitted to dictate condi
tions in the shoe trade. But he would be permitted
to dictate to shoemakers the sources from which they
should buy leather, findings, and all materials.
Thus, a monopoly of shoe-machinery patents, al
lied with the Leather trust, the Thread trust, etc.,
would be able to dictate terms to the manufacturers
as to how they should make their goods, but could
not control the marketing of them. A trust in shoe
makers' supplies would be possible, but not a trust
in shoemaking. A trust in the materials might easily
become just as oppressive and onerous as in the
product made from those materials. Moreover, the
patentee, by making his combination with the pur
veyors of materials, instead of with the manufac
turers and sellers of the finished product, would seem
ingly be able to control the situation with just as
much profit to himself.
It is not quite apparent that the bathtub decision
is a complete and signal victory for the consuming
MAKING REGULATION REGULATE.
Secretary of the Interior Fisher made an obser
vation that deserves to live, when he declared that
"there is no vested right of perpetual litigation."
Then he gave an earnest of definite purpose to
make it mean something, by telling the Western
water-power users that if they tried to defeat regu
lation of rates through endless litigation, he would
rescind their permits to use Government water
Throughout the West vast amounts of power are
produced from Government streams under Federal
permits. Attempts to regulate the prices at which
this current shall be sold, have been balked by liti
gation, appeals, and introduction of technicalities.
So the Secretary has laid down a rule like this:
When a State or municipality takes measures to
fir rates on power thus produced under a Federal
permit, tho Federal Government
the decision of the State courts in the matter is
reasonable. After the State court has decided, there
must bo no attempt to suspend the rates during a
devious new procedure in Federal courts. If there
is such attempt, then the Federal authority will re
voke the permits to use the water power.
That is a safe and sound rule, and an effective
one. The Federal authority has all too often inter
posed or acquiesced in efforts to prevent regulation.
Secretary Fisher has taken a view that many Fed
eral courts might well take in matters relating to
State regulation of railroads and other corporate entities.
Theodore Roosevelt has again justified
the faith of the men who fought with him
in Chicago and the faith of the increasing
thousands of other men in the Progressive
movement who are fighting with him still.
There was a call of unshaken courage in
those words of his two nights ago when he
caught the thought of every man who heard
him and said that in this cause there can be
Why should there be any compromise?
The Republican party is dead. The de
feat of Mr. Taft was not only a personal
failure; it marked the last step but one in
the dissolution of the old order.
The next, and the final, step will be
reached four years from now.
Nor was the success of Governor Wilson
a sign that the Democratic party had re
vived; it was largely the personal triumph
of an unusual man appearing at a moment
of national readjustment.
And the Progressive movement is more
significant and widespread, also, than either
the defeat of Taft or the success of Wilson.
It is today only in its beginnings.
It is not the quick contrivance of any
man. It will not die with any of its pro
tagonists. It is something that is being woven into
the stuff of our common lives. Its history
is the history of the hopes of the plain peo
ple. For there is in the American people a
peculiar and an abiding sense of their in
herited responsibility as the wardens of this
They regard themselves as the trustees
of the larger freedom of men.
It is in their hearts as an elemental be
lief that life itself is a purposeless thing un
less there keeps company with life an equal
justice and the due occasion for each man
to find his measure of fulfillment.
And it was the fundamental quality of
that belief which gave to the Progressive
movement the zeal of a religion and keeps
it still fronting the future undaunted.
MR. WICKERSHAM'S DISCRETION.
last August by a
violation of the Sherman act. They were not ar
rested; proceedings were quieted until after election,
Even then, when the Texas representatives of Fed
eral authority wanted to arrest the indicted men, the
i ants should not be served until he could be assured
that a case had been made which reasonably justified
expectation of convictions.
Taken in connection with the procedure when
the Standard Oil Company was disintegrated, this
seems to warrant
authorities are expressing. Mr. Wickersham accept
ed decrees of the

gation. Thus he
and what the case
to be returned,
will assume that
Certain eminent financiers in oil were indicted
Federal grand jury in Texas, for
stepped in and directed that war
all the indignation that the Texas
circuit court, in the oil and tobacco
that were widely regarded as un
satisfactory. There was insistent demand that the
decrees be carried to the Supreme Court, but the De
partment of Justice would not consent. It is felt by
many people that if such appeal had been taken,
those decrees might have been so reformed that they
would have prevented the very things which have
taken place in Texas, in connection with the or
ganization of the Magnolia Oil Company. If that
be true, then a contempt proceeding would have ac
complished what now requires an original prosecution
under the Sherman act.
The department's course at this time certainly
suggests its unwillingness to have any case pressed
which might, on trial, demonstrate the insufficiency
and ineffectiveness of the decree that was not ap
pealed. We ore impressed that the Attorney General
ought to hae confidence enough in his district at
torney, and respect enough for the work of a grand
jury that made a careful inquisition, to allow the
proceeding to take its natural course. If he lacked
confidence in his district attorney, it would have been
competent assistance in the invest!
would have known where he stood,
was worth. To permit indictments
after such deliberate process; then
to permit all further proceedings to stop throughout
the political campaign; and finally, to prohibit sen
vice of warrants under the indictments, leaves the
whole matter now in a condition which suggests bad
organization and methods or else a measure of in
terest in accused persons that is not ordinarily displayed
