PARCEL POST GROWTH.
Cautions againstvjnistakes which the public is
making in its use of thVpafcel post continue to come
with frequency from the managers of the new serv
ice. Such are sticking on packages the wrong kind
of stamps, depositing, them at wrong boxes and sta
tions, writing instructions other than the address on
the wrappers, and so ..tin.? -
The best way to, femove annoyances would be
tochange the regulations. Special stamps are per
The parcel post has c6me to stay. It is used more
every day. In, less than ,iour weeks the business has
grown to. such huge voltthle mat the Postoffice De
partment is constantly driven to expand its facilities
for Handling the shipments.- Farmers, advertising
their commodities to be' sent to consumers by mail,
have found such a demand for their articles that
they have been unable in some cases', to get enough
shipping packages. -
' AH those things,, not to speak of the stunning
effect of the new service on the express companies,
gfre an idea ofh6w tjje parcel post business has
already grown and of how it will continue to grow as
the people of the United States become more familiar
with its advantages and more accustomed to its
" workings, r
No doubt, before long, we shall hear renewal of
he protest that the parcel post is ruining the country
town. It will come from the same old sources that
always sounded that-alarm: sources which had more
relation to the express companies than to the country
v It is going to be easy to get the parcel system
expanded, and bettered, andthe first move should
be an increase of the weight limit to.'say, fifty pounds.
That would make it a real factor for bringing farm

THE TELEPHONE INVESTIGATION.
The Interstate Commerce Commission today is
sued its order for the investigation of the telephone
and telegraph business. It sets forth that informa
tion has been lodged with the commission -that the
American Telephone and Telegraph Company and
allies are attempting to monopolize the telephone
and telegraph business.
The forthcoming inquiry will be different from
any other the Interstate Commission nas ever con
ducted, because it is perfectly plain that its devel
opments will greatly influence the rapidly growing
sentiment which favors nationalization Xjf wire com
munication facilities. Thus far, in its various in
quiries into railroad rates and administration the
commission has never had to take into consideration
the possible effect of its decisions upon an impend
ing policy of Government ownership.
In the matter of telephones and telegraphs this
rule does not apply. The findings of the commission
as to the essential desirability or undesirability .of
monopoly, as to the inflation of capitalization, the
reasonableness of rates, the efficiency of service and
many other points will be considered by the public,
and by Congress, with the thought always in mind
of their bearing on trie problerrTbl public ownership.
The recommendation of a Postmaster General for
public ownership; the example of nearly all the rest
of the world, now re-enforced by the British acquisi
tion of the telephone service; the widespread con
cern over the stupendous growth and power of the
wire monopoly that is forming in private hands; all
these things have made public ownership an issue
that cannot be staved off for long. It is going to
demand the attention of Congress very soon. The
more light Congress has, when that time comes, the
better. The Interstate Commission will do the coun
try and its own excellent reputation great service if
it makes the most thorough and illuminating inquiry
it has ever conducted.

TO EDUCATE ENGLAND.
Prime Minister Asquith's project for a vast edu
cational system, to be. maintained at the expense of
the nation, is discussed, with great vehemence
throughout Great Britain. The scheme is designed
toena path-tb me,g&fes''oPme'onIversity to every
bey and girl whose mental and .moral equipment
warrant sucK an .advantage! .This .innovation, is to
be accomplished by the establishment of asystem'of
nationally supported primary and secondary schools
and by a colossal -development of universities and
, The argument for this extension is Jurnished in
concrete form by Viscount Haldane, the lord chancel-
- lor, who recently announced that a sweeping reor
ganization of the present "chaotic" system of instruc
tion is essential "if our productive power is to be
maintained in comparison with that of our rivals."
- The principal "rival" is Germany, where educa
tion has been so extended-, that the Germans have
laid themselves open to the charge of being over
educated. The danger of.-that condition arising in England
is many generations ahead. It can be met when it is
faced. Meanwhile, '")vereducated" Germany is
watching its industry, wdalttt, and power stride ahead
with a placidity thafc does not suggest grave worry
about imminent danger.
THE CULT OF AMERICAN FASHIONS.
PATRONAGE AND THE SENATE.
The movement for American fashions seems to
be gaining substantial ground. How far the su
premacy pf ..tyrannical Paris will be sh?ken is, of
course, doubtful as yet; but it appears clear, judg
ing, from numerous articles in magazines devoted to
women, that a real revolt is on, which the hobble
skirt and the sheath gown have helped to hasten.
- " The whole dreadful plot is being laid before the
eyes of the harassed American wife and her shud
dering husband. It appears that French modistes
maintain costly establishments in the Rue de la Paix
and the Place Vendome which exist to a great ex
tent on the largess of the American trade. It is to
their interest to change the styles as often as pos
sible, and to make the changes so radical that the
wearer of a gown out of style will feel mortified to
the point of buying, a new one.
The victim is compelled to discard her raiment
before she has had more than a little wear out "ot h,
in order that she may keep up with the procession.
Tens of thousands of dresses made of expensive
goods meet this fate every season, with the resultant
encouragement to extravagance. Besides, the way
things are going a woman is almost forced to make
tfie question of dress the dominant one in her
thoughts, which ought to be occupied to a greater ex
tent with things that mean more to her and to her
h The general plan of the movement seems to be
ai 'drift toward, conservatism of style, while culti
vating beauty of line. -A mode which has somethmg
more than novelty to recommend it will last longer.
Even if there is a change, it is not to be made so
sweeping that the old dress will have to be thrown
away at once.
Part of the scheme is to drive home the sugges
tipn'that American women .sometimes appear grotes
que in costumes designed for the French and which
might look very we'll on 'the figure of a chic Par
Isienne. Dress 6ught to be an expression of individ
uality, and it seems reasonable, that anything ap-
Some 2,000 appointmentsby President Taft, tu
various Federal offices or promotions in the army
and navy, are being held up in the senate beoause
the Democratic Senators object to their confirma
tion. The Senate's rule of unlimited debate makes
the hold-up possible. The Democrats declined to
permit votes to be taken, and now the Republican
caucus has determined to force continuous sessions
in the hope of wearing out the Democrats and forc
ing them to permit votes.
, It, looks, like child's; playy in one way; like cheap
p'aTronage grabbing in anofterv'Yet it is the logical
outcome of the program which ?the Taft Administra
tion adopted during-the-' Congressional campaign. of
1910, when the patronage power was deliberately
devoted -to the purpose of "destroying" the insurgent
Republicans. That was-a pitiful exhibition of bad
political judgment, for the country resented the en
terprise and repudiated the Administration in most
emphatic fashion. Every insurgent against whom
the patronage hold-up had been invoked was enthus
Since that time the Administration has held back
hundreds of nominations that ought to have been
made, merely for political effect. For a year and
more, before the Chicago convention of last June,
the President declined to make nominations in many
cases. It was desired, in this way, to keep incum
bent and aspirant on the anxious seat, and to in
sure the loyalty of both to the President. The pro
ceeding duly lubricated the pregnant hinges of a
good many pairs of knees, but its final results were
hardly more satisfying than, they had been in the
Congressional campaign of 1910.
The conventions being over and the nominations
made, it was still necessary, according to the small
bored political policy of the Administration, to con
tinue the same proceeding. Vacancies would not
be filled until after election, it was understood;
the aspirants who remained "loyal" to Taft, who re
fused to support Roosevelt, would be favored. Again
the pregnant hinges bent, and men who had stuck
by the Administration through the pre-convention
campaign in the hope of being paid in appointments,
continued their devotion in the hope that after elec
tion, at any rate, thrift would reward their fawning.
That explains why great arrears of overdue ap
pointments have accumulated. Mr. Taft is now try
ing to pay the political debts that were incurred as
the price of his support in the nomination and also
in the election campaign. Small wonder that Demo
crats, and Progressives as well, are so disgusted
with this species of office brokerage that they are
prepared to indulge extreme methods to break down
It is unfortunate that military and naval promo
tions should be entangled in this affair. The Senate
ought to single them out for confirmation. Nothing
can be gained by holding them up, and it is an in
justice to both the service and the individuals in
volved. But there is the best of reason for refusal to con
firm any appointment that represents a delayed re
ward for political loyalty. It is notorious that Mr.
Taft never would have had a chance to be nominated,
even with the aid of fraud and grand larceny, if the
patronage had not been used as it was used. The
aspirants for pap were given to understand that the
price of their appointments would be their, support
of Taft. The time has come to pay that price, and
it ought not to be permitted. The Democrats and
Progressives are really making a fight for decency
and for clean politics. This is precisely the time to
serve notice on the present and all future Presidents,
that the Senate will not permit the unblushing pur
chase of political support by wholesale, with ap
pointments to office. It is a ruinous and demoraliz
ing business. j., . j.

for a raise of salary. Mr. Jarr's
employer was one of those cau

they can't give him a J3 raise on ac

Mr. Jarr's employer knew Mr. Jarr
wanted a raise of salary; he knew Mr.
Jarr needed a raise of salary; he was

financial worries, that as he took Mr.

nearly to break the boss's heart to see

Mr. Jarr had been keeping up a
strenuous fight for I1I3 salary r.i!s.e.
Every morning he went downtown de

the boss brought blm home, with Mr.
Jarr fretting himself oer the money tho
