THE GROUNDHOG'S RESPONSIBILITY.
.Brer Groundhog might as well retire from the
prophesying business if he doesn't produce the goods
this season. Today is the occasion for his appear
ance. There is no doubt about his appearance above
ground; anybody with -a fur coat would be tempted
outside on as cheery an occasion as this day; like
wise, almost anybody would be disposed to crawl in
again after a reasonable outing.
The coal man and the ice man and the woolen-
underclothes man are going to keep tabs on the
groundhog this trip, and if he doesn't make good
his repute is hopelessly gone.
Add togetrier the assurance of the Weather
Bureau that Brer Groundhog saw his shadow today
practically throughout the country, and the fact that
there's an," ardently anticipated "inauguration four
weeks head, and who can doubt that the weather-
vise rodent will get his vindication?
THE TROUBLE WITH WASHINGTON.
Tne consideration of the District appropriation
bill is affording opportunity for astounded statesmen
to air their discovery that there are defects in the
government of Washington. We learn that taxation
is not ideally adjusted, and that there are discrim
inations in its incidence.
How many of the Congressmen who are berating
this town on that account, can give assurance that
conditions are better in their home communities?
The American cities with anything like modern
and reasonably equitable systems of taxation can be
named on the fingers of the two hands. Washington
would be one of these if Congress had provided for
making it such. This is the one town for which
Congress is responsible. When Congress waxes .in
dignant over-the defects in the Capital City's govern
ment, it js merely derating its"cwn inefficiency.
There are undoubtedly some' bad conditions here.
But it will not improve matters to make these de
fects an excuse for the effort to deny all consider
ation for Washington's needs.
If the Capitol building needed a better system of
ventilation, and Congress decided to remedy that
condition by, first, turning on the gas and asphyxiat
ing the whole membership, as a preliminary to intro
ducing ventilating apparatus, it would give a very
fair parallel to the Johnson plan of working reform
here by refusing to do anything whatever for the
AMENDMENTS TO THE FEDERAL CON-STITUTION.
Forty-three years have passed since the last
amendment to the Constitution. It was the final echo
of the civil war.
After this long lapse the sixteenth amendment
jeems certain to be proclaimed this year, and the
seventeenth providing for the direct election of
Senators Is only a little behind it. Thirty-five
States have ratified the income-tax amendment, sub
mitted to them four years ago, and only one more is
necessary to complete the requisite three-fourths.
The seventeenth, providing for election of United
States Senators by popular vote, was submitted last
year and has been approved by ten States. It is
expected to receive many more at thef sessions this
West Virginia's legislature is the latest to ratify
the income tax. The vote of Pennsylvania is ex
pected soon, completing the quota. Besides Penn
sylvania, eight more States are still to act, of which
New Jersey, Florida, New Mexico, and Wyoming are
regarded as certain to vote in the affirmative.
Although the process of changing the Constitu
tion is slow, the operation of the machinery was
delayed in the case of the income-tax question by
the great differences of opinion which existed. The
amendment which is now all but ratified provides!
that the tax may be levied without apportionment
among the States 'according to population and on an
income derived from any source. There is no doubt
that a preponderance of public sentiment demanded
this change in 1894, but not until fifteen years later
was Congress able to agree on submitting it.
FROM SEVEN GOVERNORS.
gubernatorial recommendations. The governors of
New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Mon
tana, Nevada, and Michigan are among those who
have faUen in line. With the exception of Governor
Baldwin of Connecticut who recommends municipal
suffrage for women taxpayers, all the other governors
have recommended the submission to the voters of a
constitutional amendment giving full suffrage to
Although the new year is barely a month old, the
legislatures of New York, Montana, and South Da
kota have already passed such amendments through
both houses by sweeping majorities. In New York
as jn Massachusetts, the measure must pass two
legislatures before going to the voters for ratification.
In South Dakota and Montana it will now go to the
THE PENROSE PENSION PLAN.
LAW SCHOOL DINNER
Chief Justice Peele, of Court of
Claims, and Miss Lathrop
The form is not so important as the substance, in
any plan to pension Federal employes. Senatoc
Penrose of Pennsylvania offers an amendment to the
postal appropriation measure, looking to the retire
ment of superannuated employes on indefinite leave.
They would be allowed, under this proposal, $50 per
month as retired pay.
This is simply introducing the plan of the military
service into the civil service. It never has been
apparent why army and navy people should be guar
anteed old-age incomes while civil service employes
should be denied a like assurance against want. The
army and navy officers to whom the retirement plan
applies are, on the whole, very much better paid than
the civil service people, their positions involve a
measure of dignity, distinction, and social prestige;
that does not go with the Government's civH- career.
If it is going to ease the consciences or assuage
the prejudices of any people who object to a civil
pension list, then by all means let. the civil service
Jiave a military plan of pensions. The employe who
reaches the age of enforced retirement will be quiti!
willing to accept "retired pay" instead of a pension.
No complaint will be voiced in his behalf. The
point is to (get the thing .done for him, and get it
done as soon as possible. t
The National Government pensions its old sol
diers, retires its army and navy officers on half pay,
gives a year's extra salary to the estate of a de
ceased member of Congress. We are not wont to
think of it in such terms, but it is a fact that this
payment to the family of a Congress member is
vastly more than the Government's contribution to
a civil service employe would average. It is equiva
lent to $750 a year for ten years retirement; two
or three times as much as, in actual experience,
would be claimed by the average retired civil service
Senator Penrose's plan is made to apply only to
the postal service. Let it be inaugurated there, by
all means; it will be the beginning of a system that
in one formJor another will at last bring fair treat
ment and justice to the entire force of civil service
THE EVER-GAPING WAR CHESTS.
For many decades American sympathy and en
thusiasm have provided a large share of the financial
support for Ireland's home rule war. Indeed,
"American dollars" have been derided by the tories
in their effort 'to arouse prejudice against a cause
.that could not be attacked on its merits.
But the home rule fight is on the point of win
ning. It will not be long before Ireland's campaign
chest will make no more demands on our ardor and
Whereupon Mrs. Pankhurst sends us the mes
sage that the British suffragists "have a war chest
which will hold as much money as we can afford to
send them." '
America may be pretty crude and provincial, but
it serves some very useful purposes. Doubtless it
will heed the appeal of Mrs. Pankhurst. The suf
frage warfare is more critical in Britain than any
where else just now, and while we may not approve
the methods of the militants, it must be observed
that they are the precise methods that traditionally
have been most effective in forcing attention of con
servative British administrations to the demands of
the people. Our own Boston tea party was marvel
ously similar to a window-smashing, mail-destroying
crusade in London.
IN THE COUNTRY'S CHURCHES.
An unprecedented number of governors have
recommended woman suffrage this year in their
messages to the State legislatures. The custom
began more than thirty years ago in Massachusetts,
where governors of varying political faiths have
recommended it a score of times. Colonel Roosevelt
was the first governor outside of Massachusetts to
take such-action, so far as we are aware. He recom
mended woman suffrage in his inaugural message to
the New York legislature in 1399. It made a great
commotion, and he was bitterly denounced, rms
year, when Governor Sulzer recommended it, his
action did not cause a ripple. The difference marks
the change in public sentiment in fourteen years.
This year there has been quite an epidemic of
If the figures of Dr. H. K. Carroll, the New York
statistician, are accurate, the Men and Religion Move
ment did not yield the results in membership which
was hoped for it. Dr. Carroll, former Government
statistician, reports that the total increase for all
churches for 1912 was 579,852, a decrease of 15,486
from the figures of 1911.
Dr. Carroll's figures put the total number of
Christians in the United States at 36,875,537, di
vided as follows:
Roman Catholics 12.907,000
On behalf of the'Men and Religion Movement it
may be said that the proposed increase of 300,000
Christians over the normal increase due to growth in
population was not intended to be effected in a year,
but was expected to be realized 'in five years.
It will thus be necessary to wait until 1917 to
apply the test. Meantime the Carroll statistics con
firm the-general belief that the churches that were
the most orthodox were the only ones that were
growing. The Unitarians were said to have stood
still in 'membership, and to have lost last year six
ministers and sixteen churches, while Universalists
fell off 2,500 in members. Dr. Carroll conceded
85,000 members to Christian Scientist churches.
Tle coming of woman's suit rage In
the United States was saluted con
Hdently by Chief Justice Stanton J.
Peele. of the court of claims, and other
speakers at the sixteenth annual ban
quet of the Washington College of
Law, at Rauscher's last night.
Hiss Julia Lathrop, head of the new
Children's Bureau, spoke on the need of
a new system of birth registration In
the United States. Miss Florence A.
Colcord spoke on "The Return of 1903,"
and W. II. Wooster, 1315, toasted "Hap
piness." Edmund B. Whltcomb spoke
of the seniors, "1913." and Miss Ethel
