Death reaches out for some men when their
tasks are only half fulfilled. It takes them just as

not unkindly to Isidor Rayner today. It came, in
stead, as a friendly hand to reet him at the close
of much faithful service. In that service. his memory
The school board of Revere, Mass., has decided
that the story of Christmas must not be taught to the
children of the schools under its direction in the
school exercises usual to that season. The dispatch
conveying this news threw no light upon the mo
lives of the gentlemen who have in their charge that
momentous business of giving direction to the
thoughts of youth, and it is possible only to speculate
With wonder upon the type of mind that develops
such curious results from its hegiras into the sunlit
land of hope. Even where it is severed altogether
from its trinitarian "dogma" by the most callow kind
of philistinism, the story of the Redeemer is still
the greatest story in our tongue, and these school
board gentlemen of Revere have made stupidity
sublime by denying to the children acquaintance with
Him who loved children profoundly.
J A GREAT WAKSCOST.
European financiers are discussing the demorali
sation of the business world that would result from
a' great continental war, embroiling all the powers.
It is suggested that civilization simply could not per
mit such a calamity, because it would be so tremen
dously destructive. '
0 Comparing European finances of today with those
cof 1870, it is pointed out that there is about three
times as great a volume of various public securities
Afloat, government, industrial, transportation, mining,
'all torts, as there was in 1870. Therefore, it is urged,
e disaster of having their values all shaken up
r rather, down would, be three times as great.
Of course, this is nonsense. The world was never
nywhere nearly so wealthy as now. There was never
uch an aggregation of personal property, buildings,
achinery, facilities or all sorts. The very fact that
securities have tripled in volume while population
ihat not nearly kept pace, proves this. Every other
Jfact of common observation, all the statistics of the
hudjcci, prove u. moreover, war is not so aesiruct-
Jive as it used to be. Financing the campaign costs
jmore; but war does not now entail the burning of
great cities, looting of provinces, and piratical ma-
raudings of guerrillas everywhere. Private and public
(property and private and public credits are protected
'so far as possible.
t The fact is that the vast machinery which has
.organized community credit to back modern enter
prise and industry has made the world better able
'to stand such shocks. It merely happens that the
'world is less disposed to experience them, because
the world has more sense than it once had. It
doesn't see the use. There is even consideration for
the people who must be sacrificed in battle or left
to misery and horror at home, a consideration that,
so lately as the era of Napoleon, was wellnigh un-
taken advantage of. It is there as a declaration of
the right of the people to remove the meg whom
they elect if the service of those men is deemed un
satisfactory, and, instead of proving a menace to effi
cient service, it has been its safeguard.
The direct orlmnrv has been denounced m a
cumbersome and expensive method of securing noml
nations, but we have yet to And a poor man who
was a candidate where a legitimate direct primary
law existed, who did not infinitely prefer it to the
convention system. And we know of one recent case
where the direct primary registered a success in re
gard to judicial nominations for the district bench that
compels the approval of the most conservative lawyers.
In that instance, before the primaries were held,
the bar association of the district in question took
a secret ballot of its members to obtain their prefer
ential selections for Ave judicial vacancies. .
The names of the five lawyers securing the high
est vote of that professional poll were placed upon
the direct primaries. Eight candidates at the direct
primary including the five selected by the bar asso
ciationsecured a sufficient primary vote to have
their names submitted to the people at the actual
election. And of the five men chosen by the bar
association four were finally elected by the people
And the people made that selection without the
"assistance" or advice of any of the local newspapers,
Now, as to the Progressive provision that even
careful lawyers erroneously speak of as the "recall
of judicial decisions.
First of all, the measure denominated by that in
accurate phrase is not one for either the "recall" or
the cancellation of judicial decisions.
In the States where it is in actual operation it
is in the form of a new section in the organic law,
which provides that whenever the court decides that
any industrial or economic or social legislation is in
apparent contravention of the State constitution, the
specific legislation so ruled upon by fie court shall
be referred to a vote of the people, and, if the people
vote to sustain that legislation, the said legislation
shall thereupon be read into the constitution, of
vhich it shall become an integral part.
This referendum of constitutional decisions is
only a recent measure. It cannot be applied without
the petition of a considerable number of registered
voters. The actual h'story of such case) in our State
couits is not a lengthy one. It contains no decision
the amelioration of which would hav-s jeopardized
cither life, liberty, or property. And we suggest that
even academic jurists who will study this "innovation"
will find in it nothing that is intrinsically "new" and
not a characteristic that is inimical to the great body
of the common law or the fundamental stability of
our statutory enactments.
After all "the spirit of the law is the life of the
law" and if the people have a deficient appreciation of
the finer characteristics of contracts their instinct for
torts is invariably sound.
Otherwise the common law would not be the splen
did certificate that it is to the character and clear judg
ment of the Anglo-Saxon race.

THE PROGRESSIVE MOVEMENT AND
We want to tell the intellectually honest opponents
of political evolution for that is what tney are
that almost every plank in the national platform of
'the Progressive party has been tried out in this coun
try and has "made good."
We do not suggest that they have "made good"

As a matter of fact, they were never promulgated
as everlasting verities; they were adopted to meet a
condition, and in several States they have already
met that condition.
The initiative and referendum is a demonstrated
success. It has not produced one lonely example of
"hysterical" legislation. In the States where it is
operative the people have exhibited the keenest kind
of discernment in distinguishing between measures
for condemnation and approval.
It is true that, in some cases, a vast amount of
fpoor stuff has been submitted to the voters, but it is
J also true that a vast amount of poor stuff is sub
'mitted to Congress and the State legislatures, and
the discernment shown by the people will compare
(to the advantage of the people with the discernment
(shown by their lawmaking representatives.
, In at least two States they have now a provision
l for the recall by petition of all elected officials, includ
! ing judges, and, so far, that provision has never been
It does seem as if any political party or any Con
gress would have to re-enforce a profundity of stupid'
ity with a positive genius for misdirecting its ener
gies, if it would effectively interfere with the mount
ing tides of general prosperity that are sweeping the
nation. Still, it does not do to be too confident; we
are just emerging from the umbrage of an Adminis
tration that has demonstrated resources of incapacity
that would have been quite beyond belief four years
It is announced by the statistical sharps that for
eign commerce broke all records in October. October
isn't commonly the star year for exports, that dis
tinction almost always being held by December. It
is fairly to be expected that the present year will
be no exception to this rule. The splendid autumn
weather has facilitated moving of crops to the sea
board, and we may anticipate that the holiday month
will climax the showing of a record-making year,
with some figures that will make past performances
Amost $257,000,000 of exports left our shores
in October, against $228,500,000 in December, 1910,
which till now has been the record for any single
month. For the first ten months of 1012 our ex
ports have aggregated $1,870,000,000, which is over
$200,000,000 in excess of last year s showing for the
same period. A little more than half the October
exports were agricultural products.
That trade is necessarily reciprocal, is once more
shown by these October figures. Much as our ex
ports have increased,- imports grow yet faster; the
balance of trade continues to shrink. The balance
is over a million less than it was on the smaller ag
gregate business of October, 191 1.
It is altogether probable that our grand total of
exports and imports for the completed year 1912 will
touch four billions of dollars. Vet it is only a few
years since the nation was pluming itself on having
reached a billion of exports, while the imports were

STREET PAVING IS

Alexandria Work Will Stop For Season, Although Appro-
priation Is Not Yet Exhausted Revival
Services Start Tonight.
Just now political Washington seems laboring to
stage "Hamlet" without the Prince. And the failure
of the effort has risen almost to a tragedy of another
kind. It was, of course, "soucie" of the President
elect or something just as sinisterly Scotch to re
treat to the fancied seclusion of Bermuda just when,
as he knew quite well, his faithful legions would be
wanting a word in his ear; but was it kind; was it
considerate; was it even humane? Here-in Wash
ington are the statesmen and the numerous, if un
authorized, field marshals of the triumphant De
mocracy. Within easy talking distance is Trenton.
And there, in far Bermuda, is the Great Unknown,
who might just as well be, for all the purposes of
practical politicians, basking in those isles of
Greece, "where Sapho wrote the songs that we are
half afraid to quote." Man's inhumanity to man has
.achieved no greater cruelty. ----
A largo proportion of the heavy and
rapid-Are Runs to be mounted on the t
new dreadnaught Pennsylvania and the

tracts were recently let by the Navy
Department, will bo built at the Wash

The figures of the local yard are sup
posed to be cost prices. The wages of
foremen and other employes are Includ
ed In making up the cost sheet, but the
pay of Navy Yard officers la omitted.
No margin of profit Is Included. Aa a
result the figures submitted by private
concerns are higher than thoae of the
local government factory, and the true
measure of the ability of the Govern
yard to compete with the private cor
porations Is the difference between the
private blda and the Government bid
plus a reusonable profit.

Not all of the fifty five-Inch and forty
four-Inch guns will be made at the local
factory, but a major part of them will
be turned out here. The private gun
factories or steel plants will be given
The next lowest bidder was the army
arsenal at watervelt. Neither of the
Government factories are required to

Rev. Mr. Johnson.

wealth that he can give away millions
