SUNDAY, JULY 6, 1902.
Ambassador Ohoate's effort to stop
a gathering of loyal Americana from
making'speeches and having a good
time on the Fourth of July was an .ig
nominious failure, as it deserved to
be. His excessive flunkeyism met a
FIGHTING CONGRESSMEN GO.
Congress having adjourned, "Wash
ington is on a peace b^sis again, and
street-car conductors, hackmen and
others who in their daily routine have
had to rub up .igain.st national legis
lators are coming out of their holes
and preparing to enjoy a summer of
r.-stfulness and security. Tillman, Mc-
Laorln ana Money have gone back to
ihfir bees and cows, Bailey to his oil
wolls and Beveridge to his law books
and the capital city militia has stacked
arms, folded its tt-nt and slipped away
to a watering place.
In the meantime, the dear people are
wondering what will happen on the
north bank of the Potomac next Sep
tember when these and other violent
tempetvd law framers return to their
places in the senate and house of rep
resentatives. These fellows with big
lists and boiling passions have been
dealt with so gently in the past that it
seems certain that when they get back
to their seats, corn-fed and "sassy,"
they will have the same old desire to
carve their monograms on menials or
knock each other's noses some degrees
out of plumb.
The question, however, of this peren
nial bellisrerency is much more serious
than it looks from a well or a tower.
Men who cannot behave themselves
are usually placed under some sort of
restraint if they are ordinary mortals

in season and out, to uppercut those
whose views .should run counter to
their own, but for these some special
plan might be devised. For instance,
Ben Tillman might be brought into the
changer each morning by a keeper
who had flrnt securely handcuffed him.
Around the desk there might be built
a kind of c;t.?e of sufficient dimensions
to give him a chance for comfortable
movement and at the same lime pre
vent bis thrusting an arm through the
bars and taking off a handful of the
hirsute adornment of an oppcoent.
It Is apparent, at any rate, that the
national legislative bodies must, to
preserve their own dignity, make more
stringent rules for the government .of
their members or else each set off a
twenty-four foot ring and see to it that
every "scrapper" gets fair show.
Some visiting- Venezuelans in this
country thought there was a large
sized revolution in progress Friday and
expected to read in the papers next
morning that the capital had fallen
into the hands of the rebels.
SUNSHINE FOR HOUSEMAIDS.
The young women who preside over
the steaks, salads an«l washtubs are
right at the verge of a new 'ife if we
are to believe a itory which has been
sent to the remainder of the world
from Chicago, the point of origin of a
great many good yarns but of only a
few real reforms. Chicago housewives
have not hitherto been noted for their
tenderness toward their female help,
denominated variously as hired girls,
servants and domestics. In fact, in
most "instances the Windy City cook,
laundress and cleaner of the family
silver has usually had to sleep in the
garret and sometimes in the barn or
at the home of her parents six miles
Hut all this is over now. it appears,
and the Chicago hired girls are going
to see much sunshine and poke fur. at
the young women who have to earn
their living clerking in stores or acting
as cashiers in restaurants. To be
definite sixty-eight Chicago matrons
have Tret in solemn conclave and re
solved that servant girls shall be ele
vated, at least to a considerable de
gree. If the young persons hire to
make bread and dust out the corners
actually do their work they are to be
given a diploma after a year of serv
ice in the home of any member o£
the association. Moreover, they are
to be known in future as housemaids
and if they remain two years in one
place and serve acceptably they are to
be awarded a second diploma and also
a medal, which, it is stated, may be
worn on a ribbon for display at balls
and parties. Then, to heap up the
kindness and perhaps to atone for the
neglect of the past, graded diplomas
are to be given and the hint is thrown
out that there will be post-graduate
courses in culinary and domestic art.
This Is all very cheering to the
young women who knead the dough
(indeed they do) and wrestle with pots
and pans, and The Globe sincerely
hopes they will get several of the
things that are coming to them. They
deserve, as a rule, much more than
they receive. Let the new association
proceed to business without further
A DANGEROUS IDEA.
If there were any doubt left as to the
president's readiness to utilize occa
sions wholly disconnected from poli
tics for the delivery of stump speeches
on behalf of his administration, such
as characterized his appearance as an
orator on Memorial day, his most re
cent address at the Harvard alumni
dinner would remove any such doubt
completely. The text of that address
was the devotion to high ideals in pub
lic conduct of three of his chief polit
ical aids, Secretary Root, Gov. Taft
and Gen. Wood.
These three men, of course, occupy,
or have occupied, three of the most
distinguished positions in the national
service to which it was possible to
appoint them. The encomiums heaped
upon them by President Roosevelt
would seem to indicate that American
citizens should bow down in adoration
of these gentlemen for the patriotism
and self-denial which they have mani
fested in the acceptance of their sev
eral positions and in the ordinary dis
charge of the duties of such position.
The one point which seems to appeal
with most convincing force to the
president as demonstrating the supe
rior spiritual qualities of Root and the
others appears to be the fact that
there is no especially princely salary
attached to the offices to which these
men were appointed. Gen. Wood, he
points _ out, had $60,000,000 pas 3
through his hands; yet he came out
of office having to draw on his slender
capital "in order that-he might come
out even when he left the island." Root,
he tells the world, gave up the lucra
tive position of being leader of the
New York bar to assume the office of
secretary of war; while Taft is quoted
by the president apparently as making
a very plain bid for appointment to
the office of justice of the supreme
court. Referring to him, the words of
Roosevelt's Harvard dinner address,
are as follows:
He said to me: 'Mr. President, it has
always been my dream to be in the su
preme court, but if you should offer me
a justiceship now, and at the same time
congress should take oft entirely my sal
ary as governor. T should go straight
back to the Philippines, nevertheless, for
those people need me and expect me
back, and believe I won't desert then*.' "
The burden of the president's address
is, in brief, that all these men did an
exceptionally -virtuous and high-mind
ed thing in disregarding the possible
pecuniary advantages that might ac
crue to them had they not consented
to serve in public office. This is a new
doctrine. It is a very serious doctrine
for the president of the United States
to assume the sponsorship of. It im
plies the unquestioned and unques
tionable acceptance of the all too prev
alent idea that there is not on earth
a thing that a man should set his
heart upon save the accession of mon
eyed wealth. Evidently the honor
which was bestowed upon these sev
eral men in being allowed to serve
their country in civil positions of the
highest possible honor is not to be
considered in estimating the sacrifices
with which they are to be i-ccredited.
This, as we say, is a very serious dog
ma to find indorsement by the presi
dent of the United States as it does.
These men, as a matter of fact, have
done no more, but really infinitely less,
than hundreds of thousands, nay, mill
ions of men, who have served their
country before them. There is not
one of them, unless rt be Gen. Wood,
who is entitled to a tithe of the honor
that is due to the commonest private
soldier who enlisted in the ranks of
the Union in the recent Civil war, or
even the humblest volunteer who en
listed to fight the battles of th* Cuban
people. It will be a sad day for this

republic when men who " serve their i
country are to be extolled only or
ehlefly by reason , of the N pecuniary
sacrifices which they have made in
doing so. That sentiment given ex
pression to by President Roosavelt
may tend to promote the, fortunes of
his administration. It certainly will
not aid in securing currency for any
particularly exalted, estimate of him
or of his understanding of what con
stitutes true Amei-ican patriotism.
SEA SERPENT OF 1902 ABROAD.
Horrible news comes in from th 3
pine forests of Wisconsin. The sea
serpent has been seen over there.
What matters it that he is in a fresh
water lake leagues away from the sea?
He's a sea serpent all the same to
those who see him and quite as much,
so to those who imagine they sea him.
Leo Brown and Alexander McChes
ney, unlike Washington only in that
they can tell a lie but won't, keen
eyed youths of the rural environs of
Big Moon lake, are ready to make
afHdavits singly or in-blocks of five
that they saw this amphibious animal
a few days ago. They also give •'veri
similitude to an otherwise bald and
unconvincing narrative" by going into
harrowing details, so to speak. They
assert that his sea serpentship opened
and closed his jaws like a crocodile
and that he poked about six feet of his
neck and body out of the water just
to show that if there was any "rub
bering" to do off shore he didn't have
to call in the neighbors. He did not
show any desire to come ashore and
milk the Badger cows or "hot foot" af
ter the trusts, but just disported him
self, around in a gentlemany though
distant sort of way.
Those who are disposed to throw
cohi, fresh water on the story of these
boys are warned that they do not drink
any of the stuff that made Milwaukee
famous and are not in politics. They
ne^er saw a sea serpent before and do
not want to see another, but "stand
pat" on their story in every detail. Will
some physician please inform The
Globe what effect bonny clabber has
on the eyes of those who drink it?
SUMMER GIRL IS STRENUOUS.
Those young men who have gone to
the summer resorts for a nice quiet
dolce far niente ninety days or so are
receiving the big jar of their lives. They
love the girls, particularly the girls
they meet at the sea shore, and hither
to they have been eagerly willing to do .
the bidding of the sweet creatures, but
this year things are shockingly dif
ferent from other years. The young
woman of 1902 isn't like her sister of
IS9B, a tender, pale person who spent
her time reading, swinging in a ham
mock and dressing for dinner. This
year's girl is a brawny, rosy-cheeked,
pretty picture of health who knocks
on one's door at 5 o'clock in the morn
ing and demands that you go for two
hours of play on the golf or tennis
links before breakfast. Then she In
sists that yon take her rowing for
three hours, she taking her turn at
the oars. In the afternoon she de
mands your company in a climb over
any mountains or high hills that may
be handy and winds up with an hour
of rapid golf at 5 o'clock.
This strong, energetic girl is always
doing things from morning till night
and doing more things every day she
lives. And how she lives every mo
ment of the time! She travels at a
nerve-racking pace and yet her nerves
are under such control that she doesn't
know she has them.
The girl of 1902 is the right thing in
the right place. Nobody need take the
time to wish her long life, for she is
putting herself out of the reach of the
undertakers and fitting herself to be
come the mother of brainy, brawny
"THE RIGHT OF PRIVACY."
Girls of America who have had the
good fortune to be born pretty or to
have become pretty as they grew ur
have just had thrust before them a
problem of first importance. "Th|
right of privacy" has been jarred off
the legal boards by the court of ap
peals of New York, and hereafter that
young woman who wants to keep her
picture off flour bags, beer barrels and
cigarettes will have to think of some
other way than "the right of privacy"
to attain her ends. If there is such a
thing as "the right of privacy,"
judges are stumbling and disagreeing
over it at such a rate that it is likely
to be a mooted question for many
Some twelve months ago a Rochestei
(N. V.) young woman, aggrieved over
her picture's use on certain advertise
ments, sought such redress as tlu
courts could grant her, making the
plea that a woman's beauty waa her
inviolate property and not public ma
terial for advertisers. New York's su
preme court found that "the right of
privacy" had been violated and grant
ed an injunction. This decision ha.3
just has been reversed by the court of
appeals, which holds as follows:
An examination of the authorities leads
us to the conclusion that the so-called
right of privacy has not as yet found an
abiding place in our jurisprudence, and as
we view it, the doctrine cannot now be
incorporated without doing violence to
settled principles of law by which the
profession and the public have long been

the court reasoned that if any pc: •>
could keep his picture out of a news
paper or off a flour bag he could also
enjoin any publisher from putting his
name in his paper or prevent any other
person from writing or speaking about
him. Of course the Rochester younp
woman and all others who feel they
have been wronged can drop the plea
of "right of privacy" and bring a sui;
for libel and secure such damages a;
have been suffered.
It has been suggested that a special
law be enacted to cover the misuse of
photographs by advertisers. A statute
could easily be framed which would
precisely meet the case.

People and o'kings
The glorious Fourth, the day that we
celebrate our independence and the
subjection of the benevolently assimi
lated Filipinos, is now over, with the
proper number of eyes blown out and
fingers burned off, and with the small
boy sleeping it off animated by the de
lightful consciousness that he has
made the largest number of people
available as miserable as possible. The
cannon crackers were louder than ever
before, and the streets simply swarmed
with infant fiends who could not have
told what it was about or of whom we
were celebrating our independence.
Considering our present attitude of
warm friendship with out ancient en
emy, and grief that we could not dis
play our diamonds at the dear king's
coronation, every firecracker was an
insult.and mony of the celebrators, had
they realized the significance of the
day, would have refrained from any
demonstration. From different motives
and entirely with an eye to self-pres
ervation, all mothers of future presi
dents regretted that the English were
not successful a hundred years ago. It
is understood that the Filipinos were
allowed to celebrate with blank car
It is reported from Chicago, that
center of literary effort, that a certain
Miss Minetta Theodore Taylor has
been elected president of an associa

ther reported that Miss Taylor can
read no less than seventeen languages.
The fact that we have never heard of
Miss Taylor is nothing against her, and
no doubt she is well qualified, by a res
idence in Chicago, to be the president
of Western authors. Her ability to
speak the tongue of nearly every street
in the Windy City alone makes her
eligible for any position of honor. But
Where's Ham Garland? For why is this

There has been recently in Chicago a
unique gathering of elocutionists in the
manner of a convention, in which mat
ters pertaining to the trade were dis
cussed and elocuted. We can think of
nothing pleasanter for the world at
large than a gathering of elocutionists
reciting to each other, and the person
who conceived and carried out the idea
was not only possessed of an unusual
amount of gray matter, but was a hu
manitarian of a pronounced type. It
should be made an annual affair, or at
the call of any member who feels com
ing over him the desire to recite. Some
great mind in the gathering proposed
that it should be made a criminal of
fense for a father or mother, not elocu
tionists, to teach a child to speak a
piece. It is certain from this that there
are some master minds among the
members, and any sum of money could
be raised speedily to assist in an effort
at legislation tB the end mentioned.
The fact that morally it is a crime now
to teach a child to speak a piece, may
aid lawmakers in making it legally a

tailor, who measured him and con
structed for him a suit whereby he
was made presentable to sit at table,
so outwardly he was made like unto
his host, while inwardly Jocko, in the
matter of brains, was undoubtedly
better fixed than anyone present. It
is interesting to know that he wore a
red Russian blouse trimmed with
braid and brass buttons. If Mr. Lehr
had only thought to lend him one of
his dinner coats much time and labor
might have been saved. Jocko's "oth

$517,700 consisted of specie ajpd $1,671,
--400 of legal tenders. The statement
does not agree in this respect with the
estirhates which were based upon the
traceable movements of money during
the week. Indeed a disagreement wai
looked for because the estimates In
cluded only the changes for the bank
week up to Thursday morning, while
the official statement embraced thci
movement on that day. The loans were
increased $17,011,400. This was large
ly due to the fact that the additional
capital and surplus of the National
City bank, which was paid in casb
during the week, was promptly loaned
by the bank, thus augmenting the item
of loans and more or less affecting the
average of loans reported by all the

--004,200 than the sum called for by the
increase of loans, less the decrease of
cash, and the statement, therefore, is
technically out of proof. The discrep
ancy was chiefly caused by the above
noted loans of the National City bank
of the cash paid in for the new stock,
which cash was, of course, not includ
ed in the deposit line. The reserve re
quired was increased by $704,">25,
which sum added to the $2,189,100 loss
of cash, above noted, makes $2,593,625
as the decrease in surplus reserve
which item now stands at $10,084,725;
at the corresponding date last year it
The daily average of bank clearings
during the five days of the bank was
$275,000,000 against a daily average
of $204,000,000 in the previous week.
The increase was largely due to the
July disbursements and also to the
City bank's operations In connection
with its increase in capital above re
ferred to. The surplus reserve of the
banks, though reduced, appears to be
ample for all requirements even
though there should be a further re
duction in the current week as the
result of gold because Paris Is now in
creasing its stock of gold in expecta
tion of the conversion of about $48,
---000,000 of 3% per cent into 3 per cent
The demand for gold at Paris was
last week reflected in the decline in
exchange at Paris on London to 25«
francs 15% centimes, elsewhere noted
in this issue, and it is probable that
Paris will this week draw gold from
New York; withdrawals hence for
shipment will, however, .be partly off
set by receipts of Klondike gold
through assay office checks. Compar
ing the changes in loans by the prin
cipal banks, it appears that six in
stitutions gained $15,400,000, of which
the City alone had slo,soo,ooo. * The
net loss in specie by eight banks was
$1,800000. The City shows a decrease
of $3,200,000. the First National $3.
--600,000 and the Western $4,000,000. The
largest gaina were by three banks,
which showed a total of $7,500,000.
