POSTAL SAVINGS DEPOSITORIES AND INVESTMENT. General Roy Stone, Chief of the Bu reau of Road Inquiry of the Department of Agriculture and President of the Na tional League for Good Roads, is out with a novel proposition. Assuming that public sentiment is rapidly and surely shaping itself to favor the es- a part of the national policy, he refers to the objection raised that there would be difficulty in investing the funds so deposited. To this he replies in a let ter addressed to Postmaster-General Gary under date of November 96th, and suggests a way out of the difli eulty raised by the objectors, and which is conceded to be the chief objection of moment to the proposed system. General Stone advises the Post master-General that no better possible investment could be made of the de posits than the taking of county bonds issued for road purposes. General Stone says: Such bonds are the very safest of investments, cince their avails, proper ly applied to road improvement, will vastly increase the value of property in the county, and the bonds thus multiply their own security. It seems to me that the two schemes — postal savings and road building—naturally go together and support each other. One great advantage of this arrange ment would be that the money depos ited In country districts would come back into circulation there, forming an "endless chain" of benefits. A further advantage from the road-building point of view would be that the poor and sparsely settled counties would get their road money at as low a rate of interest as those which are rich and populous. The Government could be further se cured by the State's guaranty of the bonds, by its own supervision of the road building, and, if necessary, by the State conferring upon it the right to collect tolls on the roads in case of default in payment of interest or prin cipal. In a second letter addressed to the league membership, the Chief of the Road Bureau presents the question anew under date of December I'd, say ing that further deliberation and in quiry have convinced him of the sound ness of the proposition, and that it will open up the way 60 long sought by road improvement advocates upon a scale commensurate with the vast im portance to the national life of the improvement scheme. It puts aside forever the whole ques tion of national aid, which however wise it might be, could not be secured except, after a long and bitter struggle, if at all. If the Government adopts the urgent recommendation of the Postmaster-General and establishes the savings system, it mv.st tind ways for the safe investment of the funds that they may earn for the depositors. To take the money from all over the coun try that the small savers put, into such posts] banks and transport It to money centers, he holds would be unwise. The very beat use it can make of the tD mmr, then, is to keep it in circula tion in the rural districts. How bet ter can this ho done, he asks, than to invest It among the people who make the deposits by taking bonds for road building, which may thus be secured on a large scale without onerous tax ation. On this point he adds: The ideal operation would be one which, while drawing the money out of lis hiding places or idleness in the rural districts and making it earn interest for its owners, should put it actively st \v<ork in the same districts earning money to reimburse the Government and at the same time adding wealth to meat*. The proposed investment in county bonds issued solely for road im provement, and with th•• proceeds <x pemhd under sufficient Gov,; mm nt su pervision, would Boeet these conditions in the highest degree. In view of the perfect security of fered and of the great public benefits to accrue, the Gov. rnment could well afford to incur the small additional ex pense of handling these funds and loan the money at the same rate of Interest that it pays to the owner. Suppose the rate to be 2% per cent., the interest on the bonds could easily be taken from the ordinary road funds of the county, and as the county roads would need no tepairs during the construction years, tbe road tax could either be lessened for the time or applied to the improvement of local roads. Some counties, of course, would be too con servative to accept this plan, but there would lie enough ready and willing to take advantage of it to show its asefits and ultimately lead the others to its adoption. I For this purpose long-term bonds , would be more desicable than short J ones, and payment would not be re- I quired in less than a hundred years, iif then: so that no present provision I need be made in reference to the prin cipal, except that the county should have the privilege of payment after thirty or fifty years. The "Record-Union" presents the new proposition, reserving its own Judgment, because it is one that will be widely de bated and concerning which there are two well defined sides. The length and v g m y of the report of the Postmaster- General upon the postal savings ques tion, has drawn more than usual atten tion to the matter and the subject is being widely commented upon by the press, and in the majority of cases with approval of the department's argument. This argument in favor of postal sev ings depositories as expressed in the Postmaster-General's report may he thus summarized. They will care for a large amount of money now sequestered because of lack of confidence in private savings institutions. The plan is not an experiment, but has been demonstrated to be practicable and beneficent in other countries, Great Britain, Canada, Swe den, France. India, Italy, Belgium, Hol land. Austria, Hawaii, all British colon ies and the Netherlands. It would increase faith in the Govern ment a*hd incite to thrift and providence among the people of small means, and thus the battle of life would be made less difficult. It would conduce to better citizenship and broaden the idea of the duty of the citizen to his country. It would invest the individual with a sel fish interest in maintaining the nation's credit. Postal savings are chiefly owned by wage-earners and minors, hence there is no other channel through which the Government can get into closer partner ship with the great masses of the peo ple. Private enterprise in investing and caring for individual savings is inade quate, because confined to populous cen ters in the main. The money order of fices, now far outnumber the banks, and are rapidly expending, but no one dreams of considering them as part of a scheme of paternalism. The Government system would not be for private gain, and hence the savings \\ ould be more economically handled. The Government depositories do not in terfere with private or national hanks and the experience of all the nations of Europe is cited in proof of the fact, as nearly all of them have the postal sav ings system in full operation and with terfect success. The system increases the cash avail able for business. The rate of interest would be low, but the security absolute, and investment could be wisely made of the funds in State, municipal and county bonds, and if these do not suffice, may be invested with the Government itself for the erection of needed public works. It will be seen therefore that It was one passage in the elaborate argument of General Gary that suggested to Gen eral Stone the road bond investment idea as another reason for urging the estab lishment of postal savings depositories. OVERDONE ATHLETICS. It is odd but true, that England is suffering a good deal because her young men are being supplanted in commercial and general business pur suits by Germans and others. This is due, it is alleged, to the over training of the school youth of England in ath letics. Commercial men say that this excessive devotion to athletics unfit young Englishmen for business, and hence they turn to the slower, more devoted and painstaking Germans, Danes, Swedes and even Russians. So it is reported by a recent editorial paper in an English review .that in London and Liverpool counting room?, the young Englishmen are becoming conspicuous by their absence. Where are they? Gone, says this same au thority upon expeditions demanding fight, tussle, adventure, struggle and warring. Or they have gone into pro fessional athletic business, or are en gaged in training other youths to be inefficient in business because of exces sive indulgence in athletic exercises. It is added that the other day the Government advertised for 108 men for servite as South African mounted po lice. There were 1,100 responses, and nearly all of; them from young English :. ■ who were trained athletes, and hid nothing to do. In Germany the athletes find places in the army for the im king off of their fever. The youth of the land is so largely absorbed by that body, that the business world does not man cmmerclal life is accustomed to wait for the army term to expire be fore taking men into business, and then they come trained into habits of obe dience; they are amenable to discipline, th y have formed orderly habits, and they have got well over their athletic feveri of course there is such a thing as carrying athletic exercises to the ab surd extreme, just as we are doing n. >w in America in promoting the game of football. it might be played so as i , ; •,• 'lop vigor, stimulate courage and conserve endurance and indifference to pain, without being, as unquestionably it is. dangerous to life and limb and mind. The record of the gridiron field la not one pleasant to contemplate, as all over it the story of death, insanity and crippied bodies is written. WhU« the Pnsident of the University of Georgia has unsparingly condemned the game, forbidden it to his students and asked the Legislature to prohibit its being played in that State, the President of Harvard has come out in a magazine article in defense of the game, Juat as it is, contending that it is not for the weak, the misformed and the ill-born, but for the development of the SACRAMENTO DAILY RECORD-UNION, SUNDAY* DECEMBER 12. 1897. sound, strong and vigorous manly qual ities of courage, endurance and hardi ness. But we apprehend that the general public will agree with the Georgia ed ucator that there is no need for the j present danger in the game. It may ibe played with elimination of its ap ■ parently purely animal features and ; still retain its vigor developing quali ties, in a very large degree baseball does this without involving the player lin such excessive output of muscular energy as to overtax or endanger. The plea is made that the rugged character of the game tends to develop men who in time of need will do, and dare to do heroically. But history proves that there has been more hero ism and daring and doing by the non athletes, than by those who make ath letics a fad. The most daring men and women of this or any age, those who have dared and done heroically, were moved by the heart and mind rather than by consciousness of their physical strength, or as the result of rough and tumble athletic exercise in youth. We are agreed with our con temporary, the "Oregonian," that as In the past, in the present and in the future brain rather than brawn will make the heroic records. No one at all sensible decries athlet ic training for youth, for properly con ducted it is a means to great physical vigor and an aid to bounding health. It is the excessive indulgence in exercises against which a just protest goes up. We want no athletics that so absorb the man as to unfit him for any thing but muscular fields of activity. The day and the age want brain and they demand brawn, hard, firm, ribbed as with steel and brass, but the want is for both in combination, and in such combination that the one does not en slave the other. The attempt of some of the San Francisco press to magnify the expres sion of Chief Justice Beatty, that the effect of a certain decision of his court will he mischievous, as an insult to his colleagues, is not warranted. We find nothing whatever in such an expres sion justifying the assumption that one of the Supreme Court has deliberately ami with purpose insulted another. In fact, the opinions of appellate tribu nals will be found to contain innumer able instances of declarations of dis sent, where the expression is that a contrary view is dangerous, erroneous and mischievous in its results. A large portion of the San Francisco press is disposed to make mountains out of mole hills, and exaggerate very ordi nary matters into sensational import ance. Unhappily, this trend of metro politan journalism is of augmenting momentum, and is "mischievous in its effects." Happily, however, there is a counter irritant that is serving to mod ify the pernicious results of this order of newspaper work, namely, the grow ing unbelief of the general reading public in anything they see in the sen sational press. Where this feeling has not expanded into absolute unbelief, it assumes the form of doubt, which serves to suspend judgment until there is verification of the journalistic as sertion. Then, again, unhappily, this disposition to doubt and refusal to ac cept, affects to some extent the non sensational, the conservative and self respecting press with a soul above the greed for nickels. It is thus that black sheep tend to give a bad name to the entire Hock. The belief rs entertained that Ferdi nand of Bulgaria is finding the crown too heavy for his brow, and is about to abdicate. In his recent address to a delegation from his Parliament at Sofia be very bitterly took his Cabinet to task for failing to give his meas ures support, and in aiding him to meet attacks made upon his administration. He told the legislators that he had ac cepted the crown unselfishly, but if it was thought by the houses that he had done so for greed or personal ambition he would gladly lay down his burdens and leave the country. Unhappily for I rdinsnd he has managed to have trouble with all the neighboring States and with every European Government until three of the great Powers have withdrawn their Ministers from his court, and have ceased to hold diplo matic converse with his Cabinet. On top of all this, he has had a very lively row with the Pope, and now the power of the Catholic church is leveled against him. His family relations are unpleas ant, he having antagonized most; of his relatives and those of his wife. He is believed to have been not wholly free from blame in the assassination of Stambouloff, and to have had criminal cognizance of other assassinations. Such a Prince would do well to quit the business of ruling, and from the wreck of a once great fortune which he has permitted to slip through his fingers clear up enough to engage in some other vocation. The Alameda "'Argus" says that "it is hard work for those papers that are bound to be dissatisfied to get up a cause of complaint for the way the Pacific roads have been handled," now that all the money owing to the Government has been recovered from the greater of the roads. Oh, no, not hard work. The fault finder has the easiest of tasks in .1 uituible. Nothing is beset with so U W difficulties as carping criticism and perpendicular growling. It is so easy to point the way that is hard to go. It is BO easy to pull down and so difficult to build up. There is one consolation the "Argus" can take home to comfort it—no one on this round globe expected th' M chronic, partisan and selfish fault finders to be satisfied with anything the Administration does. What is the matter with San Fran cisco gas—that sent through the street mains, we mean? More people are killed, apparently, by that deadly pro ! duetion than by all other means cont inued in that city. Australia is growing in importance as a mark-, t for American apple*.

VOICE OF THE PRESS. EXTRACTS FROM EDITORIAL EXPRESSION. State and Coast Opinions on Sub jects of Living News Interest.

Los Gatos News: The total shipment ' of prunes from this county up to .Sat urday night amounted to 43,591,595 pounds. The 80,009,000 pound estimate will soon be out. It should be remem- J bered that the estimates were for one- j third of a crop. If California can pro- | duce lHi.UMi.ittM> pounds Che estimate for the entire State) with a short crop, \ it can furnish the world's supply, 270, --009,000 pounds, with a full crop. It would be a good move to try some means of increasing the world's con sumption, other than lowering the price. The best way is to increase the quality of fruit and improve the methods of preparation for market. AN ANOMALOUS SITUATION. Los Angeles Herald: European mirth over every manifestation of Jingoism by the United States is quite justified, if we but stop to consider our compara tive helplessness in the important mat ter of coast defenses and our inability to take care of the naval vessels we possess. The report of the Secretary of the Navy discloses the fact that of the three Government docks designed to accommodate first-class battleships, only one is serviceable at this time, and this, located on Puget Sound. 900 miles from San Francisco, is accessible only through a narrow channel, twen ty miles in length, one side of which is in possession of a foreign country! The two docks on the Atlantic, found tQ l>e wholly inadequate for the pur pose intended, are undergoing repairs and enlargement, but these improve- j ments will not be completed until some time next summer. In the event of a war with any European Power, pend ing an increase in our docking facili ties, the magnificent battleships of the Atlantic squadron would have no friendly port into which to put for re pairs, and their usefulness in coast de fense would be greatly impaired, if not destroyed; while naval maneuvers in the Pacific would be contingent upon the good luck of our warships in escap ing injury, or, more miraculous still, in reaching the dock at Bremerton in the event of catastrophe. .MEXICAN ORANGE CROP. Los Angeles Express: It is announced that in spite of the tariff of 86 cents a box the heavy orange crop of Mex ico will all be marketed in the United States. The grower gets 50 cents a box (called by courtesy of free sil ver a dollar a box) and after freight and duty are paid the product can be sold in Chicago to compete with our own fruit. This demonstrates the con tention set up by California that not even a cent a pound tariff would keep out the foreign fruit. THE PRESTON SCHOOL CASE. Alameda Encinal: The Stockton "Mail" claims that the Preston School scandal is "none of the Governor's fu neral," and that he can do nothing in the premises even if he desired. We do not believe that the "Mail" man believes this himself. It is absurd to think or say that the chief magistrate cannot if he will take steps to remedy gross abuses in the institutions which are under his charge as such magis trate. POSTAL RATES. Fresno Republican: The proposition to .aise the postage rate on second class matter because the postal service is run at a loss would be more clearly justified if the railroad companies were not paid 7 cents a pound for carrying the mails, whereas the same service is performed for the express companies for 1 tent a pound. The postal ser vice should be made self-supiwrting. but the first thing that should be done to attain that end ks to reduce the cost of carrying the mails. When that ser vice has been reduced to a fair busi ness basis it will then be in order to in crease rates, if the department is still lacking in revenue sufficient to pay expenses. AN IDLE THREAT. Los Angeles Times: The enactment of the Dingley tariff law has very nat urally caused a great deal of dissatis faction in Europe, where the Ameri can market is regarded as the legiti mate prey of those who can capture it by strategy or assault. "Protests" more or less loud and deep have come across the seas from time to time, declaring the schedules of the Dingley law to be unjust, extreme, oppressive and other wise obnoxious. These protests have been followed by threats of retaliatory tariffs, f.uch as would result in dire in jury- to American industries, and would causa us to regret that we had the te merity to enact a protective tariff law. These protests and threats from Eu rope are idle. Europe will not retaliate to any great extent, because of the in creased duties of the Dingley tariff. Europe cannot afford to erect high ar iff barriers against American products, for the reason that she needs these products and must have them. If Eu rope were to exclude American prod ucts from her markets, or bar their entrance thereto by unreasonably high tariffs, Europe would be a far greater suff. rex than the United states through the operation of such a policy. IT IS RIGHT. Los Angeles Record: It is not strange, nor to be deplored, that there is so much politics in the newspapers. In every' civilized country the ruling powers are constantly occupied with Questions of finance, with regulating tariffs and collecting customs: with ne- ! inflating and enforcing treaties; with ■ enacting and enforcing laws. All these matters affect the people in all the ranks and in every relation of life. A.id since the people in this republic of ours, are the direct sources of au thority to do these things, and every year, in some way, are called upon to • sprees their will at the ballot box, they must think about their political duties: must talk about them, and many people must be constantly writ ing about them. I itherw ise there would come to be po litical indifference and stagnation, and "g tvernment Of the people, by the peo ple and for the people would perish from the earth." FREE TRADE. Reno Gazette: One of the most per sistently made claims of free traders is that a protective tariff on goods brought into the country creates a spirit of hostility toward us. resulting in a lessened demand for our products. That some ill feeling is engendered is manifest, but that it affects the de mand for our goods is a proposition contradicted by the facts. Free trad erS are either proverbially badly in- ; formed about all Questions touching business or they are so blinded by self- Interest that their better judgment is overcome. The only business men who are free traders in the United States, as a rule, are importers. They look upon the matter as it affects their own inter ests. They prefer to see American factories closed and those of Europe in operation because they handle the THE GOLD NOT THERE. Nevada Transcript: The dredging machine recently built to mine the bed of the South Yuba River below Smarts ville is not being worked. Miners up this way have not had any faith in the practicability of the scheme sine;.' it was broached. The dredgers look beautiful on paper and pay enormous returns theoretically, but the first case has yet to be recorded where that meth od of mining has been made profitable in this part of the country". The re sult of experiments so far indicate that gold does not exist in the "live" rivet channels in paying quantities. 11BMOCRATTC H AIR-SPLITTI N<;. Marysville Appeal: Another ridiculous and unjust pension ruling of the late i soldier-hating Administration has just been reversed, and rightly so. The minor children of a member of a Ken tucky regiment applied for a pension. In the course of the unwinding of the necessary red tape it became essential to show that the parents were legally married. As they were backwoods peo ple and had moved about frequently, it was impossible to do this, though it was well established that the couple had conducted themselves just like hun dreds of other married couples in re mote localities where marriage certifi cates and family Bibles are almost un known. Furth-rmore, it was shown that the records of the county where the marriage had occurred had been burned. But the Democratic soldier haters seized upon the absence of any record, and actually refused to grant a pension on the ground that it was not shown that the children were born in lawful wedlock. This was one of the last acts of the Cleveland Adminis tration, the Infamous ruling having been made on February' SS9, ISO 7. The present Administration, however, took the case up in due time and after ex amination of the evidence the pension officials reversed the ruling and grant ed the pension. FRAUDS OF FELLOW JOURNALS. Santa Cruz Surf: The "enterprise" of the San Francisco dailies, which re ceived great laudation when a small army of correspondents was sent up the Yukon and across the Chilcoot into the Klondike country, has proved o? very questionable benefit to the country by reason of the petty jealousies, the flat contradictions, the criminations and the recriminations among those influential journals and their represen tatives who are alleged to be sending "facts" from the frozen North. If these contradictory statements concerned themselves only with the amount of gold being taken out, or the amount of gold waiting to be taken out along the Yukon and its tributaries, small harm would be done. But, from the first, they have had to do with the issues of life and death, with pri vation, suffering, starvation and the most awful woes to which humanity may be exposed.
