SLANDERING THE DEAD.
The dead engineer is a familiar enough scape
goat for railway negligence, and only the judgment
day can. reveal how much criminality is heaped upon
these most faithful of public servants to shield those
higher up. Dead men, of course, cannot defend
themselves and cannot be haled before courts. But
it is a new experience to have a high railway official
thus aspersed because he happens to be dead.
Nothing more contemptible in this line has ap
, peared than the more or less veiled attempt now
being made by the discredited railway officials of
New England .to cast a shadow upon the plans and
official capacity and character of Charles M. Hays,
the lamented president of the Grand Trunk, who
went down on the Titanic. If ever there was a
knightly and high-minded soul it was Charles Hay.
He was an American who, by his character and abil
ities, had made himself available for the headship
of a foreign corporation, and his interest in his
native land never grew less on that account. "He
was a friend of New England, while entirely loyal
to the road he served. To slander him, now that he
is unable to speak, is the low-water mark of a
shameless campaign for rehabilitation by men who
are not worthy to unlatch his shoe strings.
SAFE AND SANE HATPINS.
sage, and to insist that he be given a vindication. If
he does not take this course, then, under all the
circumstances, somebody else ought to initiate it.
SAVING THE WATER POWERS.
It seems a pity that the time of legislatures
should have to be taken up with a measure limiting
the length of hatpins, yet at least one State, Mich
igan, has deemed it wise.
In Michigan the hatpin is .limited by law to a length
of ten inches, and it is a felony to wear a longer
one, just as it is to carry a concealed weapon.
The subject is not altogether deserving of tnc
light-treatment some of the legislators are inclined
to give it Only a few weeks ago a man in Boston
died from the scratch of a hatpin, and a serious
accident is liable to overtake anyone in 'a crowded
car so long as women thoughtlessly persist in wear
ing hatpins that protrude several inches outside the
crown of their hats, as many of them still do. These
perilous pins, of course, are relics of the time when
hats were of the washtub style. Hats have been re
duced in size, but too many pins have not, although
it is an easy matter to have them shortened, as the
women would find out by consulting any shopkeeper.
The good sense of most women has already antici
pated the proposed legislation.
THE HOTELS AND THE UNIONS.
New York hotelkeepers have been in a feud
with their waiters, more or less intermittent, for a
number of months. The situation has developed to
the point of riot, destruction of property, and menace
In all probability these conditions would have
been avoided if the hotel owners' organization had
not taken and insisted upon the position that it could
not recognize the waiters' union. The hotel pro
prietors occupy the anomalous position of conducting
a Hotel Owners Association, which co-operates in
every way possible for protection of mutual interests,
while insisting that the organization of their em
ployes cannot be recognized. It is, literally, making
one rule for the employer and a different one for the
That sort of thing recalls the time when England
deported men to Australasia for no other offense
than that they had formed a labor union! But that
was in the eighteenth century. Tnis is, theoretically
at least, the twentieth century, though the attitude of
the New York hotel men suggests a doubt whether
it is the twentieth century in New York.
Secretary of War Stimson devoted long study
and effort to the' problem of protecting the oublic
interest in the Connecticut river water power and is
deserving of congratulation on the excellent adjust
ment of the matter. It is important not merely be
cause it assures that that particular power will be
developed and administered with a view to the inter
est of the general community and of future genera
tions, but also because it guarantees that similar
conditions will the more easily be inserted in water
power grants hereafter.
It is coming now to be realized that hydroelec
tricity will be the great power of the future. A few
years ago we were wont to worry about the ex
haustion of the coal. Discovery of vast new de
posits have worn the edge of that particular worry.
It is more likely that the world will discover how
expensive and nasty coal is, and to a considerable
extent quit using it, long before there is menace of
the supply failing. The real point is that electricity
made from water powers is going to be so much
cheaper than coal that coal will be used only where
it is impossible to get electric current.
At the very best, the status of water powers in
this country is uncertain. The Federal Government
has control over navigation, but doesn't claim to own
the water. The conflict between these propositions
leaves a broad twilight zone of jurisdiction. The
Federal authorities resolved this uncertainty as to
their precise rights and authorities, in the Great
Falls case, by inducing the applicants for the power
to write into their application the various conditions
that the National Government wanted to enforce.
Perhaps the applicants, -by process of litigation or
legislation, could have got what they wanted without
agreeing to all these conditions; but they were
willing to make the agreement, and 'did..
In the Connecticut river case the corporation
which has been granted the power rights, agreed to
spend nearly half a million dollars for construction
of a great lock as an aid to navigation, and about
five millions in the development of the water power.
On all this investment it will be permitted 8 per cent
interest. Above 8 per cent and inside of 9 per cent,
Government and company will divide- equally; above
9 per cent the Government will get an increasing
proportion of the earnings.
Such conditions as these, together with provi
sions against overcapitalization, excessive charges,
limited tenure of the franchise, etc., are being in
sisted upon by the Federal administrators, in all
grants of power rights; and it is cheering to note
that the people who are developing powers are com
ing to the conclusion that these conditions do not
constitute a bar to investment. There was a period
when the power promoters seemed to have decided
to boycott the Government; to refuse fo do any more
business until the Government should withdraw its
insistence on these terms. The Government proved
quite as stiff-necked as the promoters, and the latter
are now giving way. They would have been pleased,
of course, to get perpetual and unconditioned grants
of all the big powers in the country, as they used to
do in the good old days before Roosevelt awoke the
country to a realization that its water powers were
of inestimable value and were fast getting beyond
community control. But, convinced at last that the
old game was played out, the seekers after power
are coming in, now, and agreeing to reasonable terms.
They have yielded to the inevitable. The country is
not going to impose the yoke of a water-power
monopoly on itself, now that it understands what
that imposition would mean.

II MANY PULPITS
Capital Preachers Aid Fight to
Forbid Night Employment of
SENATOR WARREN'S STATUS.
The muddle over the organization of the Wyom
ing legislature seems practically at an end, and the
Republicans will hold a sufficient majority on joint
ballot to re-elect Senator Francis E. Warren. There
has been a bitter fight against him, but his wonderful
organization in the State has withstood all attacks
and will return him to Washington.
It is past belief, however, that the Senate can
refuse to take cognizance of the charges that have
been made against Senator Warren. Tiny have
been stated so specifically, so widely published, and
on authority so entirely responsible, that neglect of
them must seem quite unaccountable in view of the
latter-day evidences that a higher tone prevafts in
the Senate. The Lorimer case and the Archbald im
peachment have given warrant for the feeling that
the Senate as now constituted is a good deal more
concerned to stand well with public opinion, and a
good deal les.s willing to assume a cynical indiffer
ence, than formerly.
At this time, it must be observed, there is a more
impressive case against Senator Warren, in the de
tailed statements that have been widely published,
and that still stand without any demand from Sen
ator Warren or his friends for a pub'ic airing, than
there was at a corresponding period in the develop
ment of the case that drove Lorimer from his seat,
or in the beginning of the impeachment proceedings
against Judge Archbald.
If Senator Warren knows that there is no charge
which he need fear, then it is his duty to himself and
his own good name to introduce a resolution for
investigation, to make personal appeal for its pas-
THE UNANSWERABLE ARGUMENT.
Mary Wood, prematurely aged from toil in a
London sweatshop, appeared before Lloyd George
and other British statesmen and told of her working
sixty hours a week for 75 cents.'
She was followed by other women workers in
London sweatshops, by women weavers, fishmongers,
factory girls, pit workers, and domestics, each telling
of conditions of similar killing toils for a wage that
does not prevent starvation conditions that engulf
thousands of London women, and tens of thousands
of English women.
They made their statement in support of the ar
gument favoring women being given the ballot in
Great Britain in order that they may improve their
conditions, uplift all womanhood and the offspring
It was the unanswerable argument in favor of
woman's suffrage. The plain, pitiful tale from Lon
don's starving, broken women, asking that they might
have an opportunity to vote upon the justice of their
own conditions and vote for their own uplift, carried
far more weight in favor of woman's suffrage than
all the months of rioting and hunger strikes, window
breaking and acid-throwing of England's wealthy
women who move in good society and do not know
what it is to want for any of life's necessities.
The one unanswerable argument in favor of
woman's suffrage anywhere is the industrial slavery
forced upon women by the conditions created by men
and legalized by the laws made by men.

The campaign of the -National Child
Labor Committee will be assisted to

Washington, the majority of whom
took "Child Labor" as the subject of
their discourses In observance of Child
Labor Day today. The day was set
aside all over the country by the child
labor committee In tho campaign to
abolish child labor.
The chief efforts of the ministers of
the District were toward the passage
of measures to prevent night work; for
children under eighteen years of age.

"Seeing Europe on Sixty Dollars." by
Wilbur FInley Fauley, (published by
Desmond Fitzgerald, of New York). The
moment one reads this astounding and
alluring title, the feeling of hope, envy,
admiration, which has sprung up with
in one's heart is tempered by a cynical,
calculating sensation which means in
words, "there's a trick In it." And
there is a trick in It for the title means
not that one can see all of Europe for
JC0, but that starting out with that
amount and (the trick is coming) and
a knowledge of shorthand, typewriting,
and Journalism, the feat can be ac
complished and the wealth of the In
dies, figuratively speaking, brought
home. Which follows, since the remain
der of the quotation Is quite true, the
wealth of the Indies having been taken
with one. In the shape of shorthand,
Besides very practical little tables
at the ends of tho chapters, which show
the cost of everything, the author tells
of hli experiences in a witty, casv fash
Ion which adds an interest of Its own
to the little olume. The illustrations
are photographs and pen and ink
The price of food, and the prospect of
a steady Increase In the cost of living Is
a subject which should not fall to be
of Interest to cerv sane-minded' being,
the ostrich, since a nail eater, perforcs
excluded. A scientific method of Dro-
vldlnc for the Increased cost of living
has been compiled by six of the most
prominent political economists In the
country, and Is called "How to Invest
when Prices Are Kising," g. Lynn
Sumner & Co., publishers.
Ucbldes the very comprenensive Intro
duction, which any one can understand,
by Irving Fisher, there are six chap
ters by Edwin Kemmerer, Harry G.
Brown. Walter E. Clark, J. Pease Nor
ton. Montgomery Rollins, and G. Lynn
Sumner. In view of the fact that one
of the causes for the present high price
level In the advanced gold supply, and
that tho price level Is to continue to
advance in the future, the most desira
ble form of Investment Is one which
Slves the Investor a share In the own
ership of a property or enterprise, that
ls stocks, real estate, or bonds carry
ing a stock bonus. Tho six chapters
which comprise the book tell specifically
in vvtiat. now and wncn to invest. G.

Should an author marry? Evidently
Leonard Merrick does not think so, for
the marvelously Intricate series of ca
tastrophlcs which attend the footsteps
of the hero of his book "Cjnthla" would
Indicate that married life Is beset with
pitfalls which are instant death to the
Mr. Merrick can scarcely be blamed
however, for the movement of his story,
for It Is one of that kind whose prin
cipals take things into their own hands
and march in and out of the plot In ac
cordance with no other dictum than that
of their own sweet wills.
"Cynthia" Is the sweet, brave wife of
a young English author, at first a drag
and wet blanket to his art In the third
car of their marriage in an absence
from her in Paris, he becomes entangled
with an authoress of very questionable
name, methods, etc, writes stories to
which she signs her name, and does
not return to England to see his wife
during ten months. Gradually he realiz
es how he Is degrading himself and
what he has lost She nolds h.lra off for
one chapter (the last In the book) but
the distrait reador is at last (the very
last page and words) given a hint that

The Man Who Was Good." by the
same author, is another story of Eng
lish Ufa but this time the heroine is a
nurse the viiuin n .iur, ami mc
hero a splendid, honorable and exem
plary voung doctor. The latter, as one
would "naturally infer, is the man who
was good, but as the story emphatically
show that he did not get that for
which his heart cried out. one is apt
to draw tho conclusion that being good
cannot get one what one wants if one
Is not to have it. So why be good? A
dangerous moral. The Desmond Fitz

have printed both Mr. Merrick's books.
