1TH the greatest canal on the

it was destined to be one of the ra-
vored spots of the world. It thought

Pensions For Employes
TIME will come when every great commercial organization will establish a
pension roll for its employes if the exactions of the employes in the mat
ter of wages do not forestall such practice by making it impossible out of
the earnings of the companies.
Practically all of the great railroad corporations have already taken such a
step and now comes a big street railway concern, the traction company of Philadel
phia, with a pension system. This company has not only established "a pension
system, but a death benefit and has voluntarily increased tie wages of its men and
made it possible for them to get still further increases by remaining continuously
in the service of the company, the increase occurring every two years.
Such acts as these cannot but improve the service of the corporations adopting
them. The pension and death benefit features are an incentive to teep employes
with the same concern in continuous service, and the increase in wages hold out to
the men as the time of service increases, is a further strong feature in this respect.
The longer an employe remains with any company, if he is faithful and competent,
the better service he can give tc his employers, and the pension and wage increase
plans are calculated to hold the good men in the service; it is the solution of the
problem of keeping help, and will work out successfully in every big institution in
the country where harmony exists between employe and employer and the demands
of the employes are not such as to make it impossible to establish the concern on
such a basis.
The plan of the Philadelphia Traction company, the first street railway system
to adopt pension system, follows:
1. A death benefit of $500 as immediate and permanent protection to the
families of 9000 employes-
2. A pension fund for the same 9000 employes, immediately available, giving
to each employe who has been 25 years in the service and -has reached, the age of
Go the privilege of retiring upon a pension of $20 a month for life.
3. To onotoranen and conductors now in the employ of the company and who
remain, a raise of wages wall he given on July 1. 1910, from 22 to 23 cents per
hour; on July 1, 1912, from 23 to 24 cents an hour, and on July 1, 1914, from 24
to 25 cents an hour. New employes coming into the service after Jan. 1, 1910,
-will get a first increase of one cent an hour two years after employment, and two
other increases at intervals of two years. Elevated road employes get like raises
every two years' to a maximum of 28 cents an hour.
The Philadelphia Rapid Transit is the first traction corporation to establish a
pension fund and death benefits payable from its own resources and not contrib
uted by the men.
Voluntarily the company has offered the motormen and conductors an oppor
tunity to reach the highest wages that they asked for at the time of the strike,
this by merely continuing in the employ of the company.
Washington. Jan. 7 "For a volitician
who was supposed to be on x.o all the

member of the house, "John Sharp "Wil

"When "Williams was serving his last
term as minority leader of the house,
we were badly in need of organization.
We had a lot of new members, most
of them yonng, who needed some one to

annnoucement that he nad been appoint

Enlist Opposition In Army.
Nominally Nicaragua is a republic,
where the will of the people should
be supreme. Its constitution reads as
smooth as our own, but only the letter
and not the spirit prevails. Every
man is supposed to have the right of
suffrage, yet there is another provision
which sets forth that no soldier in the
army shall vote. And the president has
the right to enlist whom he will. Re
sult; When there Is a close election
thousands of the opposition are tem
porarily enlisted in the army.
It is said that in one election more
than 7000 opponents of Zelaya were
enlisted, while all his friends were
omitted from the recruits. This is the

Honety Im Marked. ,
Honesty is a marked characteristic
storekeepers have their cigars and cig
arets where the passerby may set them
and drop the price in a cup by the side
of the box. Even the beggar wilj not
touch this unguarded cup.
Cock fighting Is the principal pastime
of the people. Some of the Nicaraguans
wear their hair trimmed close except
for a little circle on top of the head.
The barber cuts a cocoanut in half, fits
It on the head like a cap, then trims
away all the hair not covered by the j
sneii.
Ant Life of Nicaragua.
The ant life of Nicaragua Is most
interesting. There is one species that
are agriculturists of a high order. One
sees them carrying little green leaves
toward their homes and then going
back for more.

"'How?' asked "Williams, as he fon
dled the pipe he smoked when a student
at Heidelberg.
" 'Create some offices,'' was the reply.
'The Republicans have a whip and an
assistant whip. We've got a whip, but
no assistant. Now, if you created the
office of assistant whip you would
make some promising young legislator

party instead of worrying what kind of
a bill would make the greatest sensa

"'I'm willing drawled Williams. 'GotM
any one in mind?'
" 'We did, and we want to know why
you changed your mind.'
"The truth of the matter is.' said the
minority leader, I thought I was talk

go to Hughes and say I intended to
make him assistant wi.ip he will be of
fended because I did not know him. If
I go to O'Connell and say I mistook
him for Hughes he'll not only be of
fended for the same reason, but the
thing will get into the papers, and it
would not look good in his district. I
guess I was dreaming of how I would
conduct myself when I shift over to that
crew of heavyweights in tne senate.

Some of the papers are busy printing the statement that Mexico's act in giving

In the future, Philander Chase Knox will figure as prominently, in Central

Foreign noblemen seeking American

Taft And Precedents
TAFT is not going to let one Teddy Roosevelt hold the record for shattering all
the precedents.
The new president the other afternoon took away the breath of those
who have maintained that the days of Jeffersonian simplicity have long departed,
and that the administration is taking on all the ceremonial of a European court,
when he calmly left the white house and paid a call on judge Horace H. Lurton,
the newly appointed associate justice of the supreme court. The affair was uni
que in that it was unwritten law that a new official shall make the first call of
Tespect at the white house.
The president, accompanied by Capt- Butt, left the white house in midafter
noon and started for a walk over the mall back of the executive mansion. The
two were clad for any'weather, and both wore stout shoes. The lowering clouds
threatened rain, and it was sloppy underfoot.
After they had circled the mall the president led the way up Pennsylvania
avenue, and, practically unnoticed, made his way into one of the leading hotels.
He inquired for judge Lurton, who is an old friend, and when the hotel clerk had
recovered from his surprise, it was discovered that the jurist had gone out for a
walk.
"Too bad," said the president, showing his disappointment. "Please tell him
that I called."
He then returned to the white house.
It is just as well to have a few precedents of this sort shattered. The presi
dent of the United' States is the president of all the people; there is a dignity
that attaches to the office which should be respected, and precedent says that
visitors to the capital must always call first, but there is no reason why the pres
ident should not call first if he feels like it. Such an act emphasizes the democ
racy of our country and its president. J

Another man has given his life to science. M. DeLaGrange, the noted French
aviator, has paid the penalty for conquering the air. He was successful and will
be looked upon in after years as one of he intrepid adventurers who made possible
traffic in the clouds, a pioneer of daring, nerve and brains. Pioneers are necessary
in everything and it is necessary always that pioneers should suffer. In war and
peace, pioneers and heroes are necessary. In the case of the nervy Frenchman we
have both, and the world will not forget him.

rates Mr. Sabath proposes, it Jwould un
doubtedly have a serious effect on the
prospects of needy noblemen, for. it
would tax dowries of $1,000,000 or m-
at the rate of 20 percent. The rate at
$100,000 is only 1 percent; from $100,000
to $500,000, 5 percent; $500,000 to $1,
000,000, 15 percent.
Presidential Succession.
Nicaragua has a most unique plan
of presidential succession In times of
peace. The names of five senators are
written upon sl.ps of paper, placed in
as manV envelopes, shuffled, and three
of the envelopes are drawn oue and
filed away In the state archives. The
other two are destroyed without their
contents being known.
When there is a vacancy in the pres.
idency the duly constituted authorities t
open the first envelope and the sena
tor whose name is written thereon be
comes president. Here we see how the
people distrust their own associates.
The name of the heir apparent must be
kept a profound secret lest he or his
friends seek to hasten the succession.
"Dumb Driven Cattle.''
Nicaragua is not noted for a high
average of intelligence among its peo
ple. Those at the head of affairs are
usually well educated, and thereis also
culture among the welltodo classes of
the country, but the rank and file are
merely ignorant, unlettered tropical
people. ")
They are "dumb driven cattle," who
lend themselves readily to the purposes
of the demagog. They are nearly al
ways against the government because
they so often feel the law's restraining
hand.
Some idea of the prevalence of ignor
ance may be had from a report made
bination with another substance, use
them as a compost in wnich to grow a
kind of tiny mushroom which consti
tutes the food for the ants when they
are shut indoors by the rain.
The evidence of this is so positive
as to admit of no charge of nature
faking.
Ants .of another species are great
foragers, and travel In hordes on their
principal port
the Pacific side Is Corinto, which has
about 2000 inhabitants. The principal
town on the east side is Bluefields,
which Is 1186 miles from New Orfeans.
Nicaragau has one railroad, which
runs from Corinto to Managua, and
from there to Granada on Lake Nica
ragua ,the largest inland body of wa
ter in that part of the world. Last
year Nicaragua bought from the United
States textiles, clothing, machinery,
etc., to the amount of $1,300;000, and
sold to this country bananas, coffee,
rubber, mahogany, cattle, hides etc., to
the arriount of $1,050,000.
Many Race Type.
On the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua
there are 17 recognized racetypes, the
product of the mixture of Chinese, 'ne
groes, Indians and whites. In the In
terior there are almost as many va
rieties of polKcal parties, divided by
distinctions hardly less exquisite than
those which separate the various races
on the coast. The Issue on which these
parties differ Is, at bottom, the-matter
of the church.
In Nicaragua there, exists a religious
question almost exactly parallel to that
which still troubles the peace of
France. This situation Is probably due
to a considerable extent to that close
sympathy and quick raponse whiv.
Central America manifests towards ..
things French.
In spite of the geographical proxlrxu
ity of the United States, its Influenced
in Latin America is far less definite
than that of France. It is to Paris
that Central America looks for new
ideas. It Is French policies that Cen
tral American statesmen study and imi
tate. Much that the American publicist
finds aifflcult to understand in Central
American affairs may be explained by
referring to contemporary movements
in France.
