CONGRESS DROPS MR. MELLEN
Congress is right in thinking that Mr. M Mien's
New Haven monopoly can be .corrected without the
aid of a legislative investigating committee. Federal
iirand juries and the United States Department of
Justice can do all that is needed to relieve the people
of New England from the monopoly abuses against
which they have long complained. Nobody had
thought that Congress would have to bring up rein
forcements for the Attorney General if he showed
determination to get to the bottom of this matter.
What puzzled the people of New England was that
the Attorney General began proceedings against Mr.
Mellen and Canadian railroad officials for conspiracy
in the Grand Trunk case instead of against Mr. Mel
len and his New England associates for acts within
the New Haven system itself in violation of the laws
, of the United States.
THIRTY YEARS OF VAUDEVILLE
It is impressive to read that the little show started
In Boston thirty years ago this week by B. F. Keith
has grown to be a transcontinental circuit catering
every year to at least 100,000,000 people. Theat
rically, the "continuous performance" has taken
rank as the great discovery of the nineteenth cen
tury. Now, thanks to it, Americans have their after
noon and evening vaudeville, whose brevity and
variety peculiarly, suit American tastes, and which
has developed quite as rapidly on the artistic side as
on any other. The success of vaudeville speaks well
for the good judgment, as well as alertness, of men
like Mr. Keith. They know that the public enjoys
clean and clever entertainments, and they have
turned their knowledge into the most prosperous
policy in the history of the theater.
MASSACHUSETTS'S NEXT SENATOR.
The first bill introduced in the Massachusetts
Legislature this session is one drawn to give the
people of that State the chance to name the man
who shall be their United States Senator for the next
six years. Jt would take the choice out of the hands
of the special interests endeavoring now to direct the
choice by manipulating the partisan caucus, which
they think they can handle for their own advantage.
It is introduced by the Progressive members, who
are leading the fight for it as the Progressives have
led the fight all this year.
; -The Senate election tfill embodies accurately the
principle of real self-government for which the Pro
gressives stand. It is a principle to which the Demo
crats of Massachusetts are committed by their plat
form. It is a principle they must support unless they
purpose openly to throw over Governor Foss's de
mand in his inaugural. It is a principle, which
Speaker Cushing expressed in his own statement to
the Republican conference Monday, in which he said:
"I particularly desire that the choice of Senator shall
appeal to the people of the Commonwealth." If he
is honest in such a desire he must support the bill to
give the choice actually to the people themselves.
The bill should be pressed for immediate action
in Massachusetts not only :o g've the people of that
State the popular" election of a Senator now, but to
set the pace for other Legislatures where the iss.w; is
up. in tne tast massacnuseits nas oeen a leader in
the movement for making the members of the upper
house of Congress responsible to the popular will.
Not only Progressives but Republicans and Demo

public that its demand in the matter would be

idea to the consideration of the lawyers who have
been concerned for some time in bringing about
reforms in American judicial practice. Tney have
a big task to perform. A good way of beginning it
would be to strike down at the outset certain meth

sensible persons everywhere.
MURDERERS AT LARGE
Joseph Ettor, the organizer of the waiters' strike
in New York, is broadening out. His recent ex
perience in the Lawrence strike has given him con
fidence". He has now developed into an actual insti
gator of murder. His latest scheme for securing the
success of the Industrial Workers of the World is
the old scheme of poison. "If you are compelled to
go back to work," he told the striking waiters of
New York last night, "go back with your minds made
up that it is the unsafest thing in. the world for the
capitalist to eat food prepared by members of your
In other words, go back determined to commit
the wholesale murder of the absolutely innocent irien
and women who trust themselves to your assumed
sense of common decency and humanity. Poison
deliberately. Kill in cold blood. Watch the victims
of your hell's brew as they .writhe where you have
sent them to a troubled death. Count them as they
lie, cold and stark under the pitying lights; the un
warned victims of your conspiracy against civilization.
So it is that this licensed blackguard counsels the
men he is supposed to be leading in a fight for the
square deal. So it always has been with men of his
kind. And so it shall be until this country calls to a
sharp and a quick account, that will be inflexible and
merciless, every vandal of civilization who talks as
Ettor talked last night.
Murder as a last resort always has been the doc
trine of the Industrial Workers. Murder as a last
resort was the doctrine of the Western Federation of
Miners until Pettibone died and Haywood was eject
ed from membership. It was by murder, cold and
deliberate, that the Western Federation sought to
perfect its organization in CcJerado. It was- by mur
der that the Western Federation sought to terrorize
all thought of opposition to its schemes. It was as
a "warning" and only as a "warning" that Gov
ernor Steunenburg was killed by a bomb in Idaho;
and, as he lay there dead outside his own shattered
gate, with his wife and children bending over hint
and the blood from his broken body staining the snow,
it was a Western Federation assassin who surveyed
that spectacle impassively to be sure that his work
had been done.
Men of this kind men like Ettor and Haywood
and the McNamaras fatten on the dead in an al
most literal sense. They live by the terror they in
spire. They are the bosses of the unsheathed knife;
the unbridled furies of a country that has always
been too tender of its assassins, too tolerant of the
agents of disorder. But Ettor, for all of them, has
said the last word in the creed of devastation; he
has reached the final logic of his philosophy; he has
taught the fools who hang upon his words the way
to a silent and colossal terror and we must take the
blame to ourselves for tolerating him and his fellow
ship so long.

Although it's probably been said
By visitors before me,
Still I intend to go ahead;
So here it is: You bore me.
I do not like your miles of hall,
Your fancy finks and gilding';
But this annoys me most of all:
You are a Public Building.
What care I for the musty things
Around in diffrent places
The armor of the ancient kings?
The stuff inside of cases?
How in the name of rhyolite
Am I supposed to have a
Reverence for andesite
Or spherulitie lava?
And while you're at it, tell me,
What makes you think I'd go a
Step to learn of Chcrokees
Or Jakuns from Samoa?
Diak, Somali, Chocktaw, Sioux,
The Yukon and Mackenzie,
Korea, totem poles, Peru
They get me in a frenzy.
And as for birdies, what care I?
Euphagi and aramidae
They only make me weary.
I went through all, with aching
And saw but little in it;
He who's observant on the-street
Can learn more any minute.

THE ROOT OF THE MATTER.
A BLOW AT "EXPERT TESTIMONY."
"The defense will put on the stand six eminent
experts who will testify that the prisoner is thor
oughly sane. The prosecution will meet this by
producing six other experts, equally eminent, who
will declare that the prisoner is a hopeless idiot."
. This, in substance, is what the American people
have been compelled to read too long in following
the proceedings of trials, in not a few of which the
issues involved are of an import far too weighty to
be made a jest of in such a manner. The amazing
thjng is that any importance has been attached to
such "testimony." A person who wishes to gain hi
point in a suit at law can be anything from a George
Washington to a hopeless human derelict so long as
the visible supply of experts is not cornered by the
The layman has finally come to wonder why such
rank absurdity is permitted to continue. He will
acknowledge a debt of gratitude to Dr. William H.i
Welch, one of the most eminent of American physi
cians, who, as a witness in a case at Baltimore, lent
the weight of his admirably trained judgment to the
declaration that "our American system of expert
testimony is wrong." Dr. Welch, when asked to give
en opinion of a certain expert, replied that he stood
bign professionally and was entitled to great respect
if acting in an impartial capacity; but, if employed
in behalf of a private company, "I would make all
the alfowance I am in the hafiit of making for that
kind of testimony."
Dr. Welch proceeded to say that -he much pre
ferred the French system, "under which .competent
experts are employed by the courts and thus have no
relation to either side of the case." This touches
the mwTow, of the question, nd we commend the
Stated in general terms the political ideals of
the Democratic party are based on the doctrine of
rights. Stated in general terms the political ideals
of the Republican party are based on the doctrine of
duty. Stated in general terms the political ideals of the
Progressive party are based, also, on the doctrine of
duty. The difference.in that respect.betweentheDem
ocratic party and those other two parties is funda
mental. But the difference between the Republican
party and the Progressive party lies ratherin mat
ters "of men and of leadership than in the views of
the men and women who, last November, voted vari
ously the Republican and the Progressive tickets.
The rank and file of the Republican party are pro
gressive. Had there been Presidential primaries in
every State before the Chicago convention the
"theft" of that convention by the bosses and the ma
chine men would have been impossible. Had the
bosses and the machine men in the convention exer
cised the most meager kind of understanding of pub
lic sentiment they never would have ridden rough
shod over the delegates who went to Chicago in the
service of the common good. But there was no
wisdom in the bosses and the Progressive movement
resulted as the only expedient protest against a con
dition that had gone too far to leave any other reme
Today, however, the problem is a new one. The
Progressive party is a compact organization. It re
presents the convictions of its own adherents. It
represents with an equal fidelity the views of several
millions of voters who call themselves Republicans.
The difference between the rank and file of the
Progressive party and the rank and file of the Re
publican party is a difference of a name only. And
the great business of the accredited leaders in the
Republican party and the accredited leaders in the
Progressive party should be that of giving the rank
and file of both parties a common cause and an ac
ceptable name under which to work and vote. In
that lies the root of the matter.
BASEBALL'S BIGGEST SALARY.
It -pays to be a star. In baseball, it pays better
than ever. Witness the $25,000 salary guaranteed
to Manager Chance, of the New York Americans,
plus 5 per cent, of the net earnings, for three years.
But consider the profits reaped by the leading clubs.
Nearly half a million dollars was taken in at the
world's championship games in Boston and New
York last October. The two clubs shared $294,000
garnered in the eight games, and the players divided
nearly $150,000 among themselves. Nor were these
the only beneficiaries. And consider that this approx
imate half a million was about ten times the amount
'of money parceled out among the baseball men after
the Boston-Pittsburg series ten years ago. That will
give you an idea of the rapidly increasing prosperity
and profitableness.of the national game.
