people who bare been showing disintegrated

There was room for honest difference of opinion

The one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of
the institution now known as Columbia Unlver
tit.- is invested with varied interest. To some,
no doubt, die salient feature was the superb
display of the material plant which was made
to a host of visitors on Friday. Others re?ardel
the football game of yesterday as the crowning
incident of the festival. There are those who
will look with most sympathy upon tr>-day's re
ligious exercises and their reminder of the In
stitution's connection with the Protestant Epis
copal Church. Others again are looking most
earnestly to to-morrow's bestowal of degrees.
Yet other details appeal to other minds. To the
general public, which is. after all. so Incom
parably greater than even the large constituency
of Columbia University, the anniversary Is per
haps chiefly suggestive of reflections upon the
progress and development of higher edu atlon
in this country, of which the story of Columbia
Is a significant if not an altogether complete
We have spoken of "the Institution now known
as Columbia University." It was at first King's j
College, a fact reminding us to what extent our j
early culture and civilization were of English
origin. It was next, and for the greater part of
its career. Columbia College only, ranking as
on* of our minor eclipses, with a few profes
sional schools nominally associated with It.
Finally it has become Columbia University.
with the old college for a nucleus and with nu- ;
Sierous professional and graduate schools organ- !
•ally united with it under a true university
system. Such has not. of course, been the story
of all dot colleges and universities as individ
uals. Some had no trace of Old World influ
ence in their founding. Some have remained
small colleges all their lives, while others were
made real universities at the outset. Nor can
we say that Columbia was in either Its earlier
or its later development a pioneer. Neverthe
less, the story of its progress presents a close
parallci to the story of our Institutions of higher
learning as a whole Collegiate and unfve-pity
education in America was of English origin.
For many years it consisted chiefly of small
colleges and separate or only partially related
professional schools, with no real university
nrgankation. Finally, within the last genera
tion a nut university system has been widely
In other respects the growth of Columbia has
b»en similarly characteristic of the whole Amer
ican system. Columbia owes its material en
dowment to various sources. It has received
some frr>tn the Stare, some from one of the de
nominations of the Christian Church, some
from the mamlfleenoe of individual citizens and
some from the trains made through shrewd ad
ministration of Its affairs. It i* in one or more
of tl hs© ways that most other Institutions have
been I lilt up. Again, it Is to be observed that
the mnr.-> Columbia pet« th^ more it wants.
Little old Columbia College of a generation of
two ajro seemed pretty well able nnd content to
pel aioi!£ with the endowment which it had;
bat when it Joined the university movement and
!>*-sran to enlarge its border's and its work there
was i different «?tory. Money came to it by
millions, but still it needed and called for mill
ions more. To-day it ranks, we believe, as the
third richest institution In America, and yet
scarcely any other is more earnest and urgent
in its calls for further gifts. Nor are those calls
Idle or unfounded Columbia needs more
money. Po does every university and college
worthy of tbe name. The more It gets, ihe
more it needs, for the reason that with every
addition to its resources it increases its work
and its liabilities to a still greater extent That
la the story and that is the condition of our
whole system of higher education.

No doubt Judge Herrick vrislws be bad not
said anything so abominable, and would be glad
if there were no stenographic minutes to prove
his words. But It Is too late either to repudiate
them or to explain them out of their obvious
moaning. The Judge-Boss, who according to
"The Sun" was a "desperate political" operator.
6eems still well acquainted with the methods of
tbe machine which he continued to manage from
the bench, though, according to the new« col
umns of "The World." It "knew no law but the
law of success"," and. according to "The Brook
lyn Eagle," manipulated elections to make them
worse thnn they were tinder John T. Mc'\ane.
That Is the "reformer" who Is too pure to desire
the rotes of those who believe in Theodore
Roosevelt and his campaign, despite Hex-rick's
likening of It to Deveryisra!
Judge Parker dees not shine as an apologist.
He does not seem to believe that holiest con
fession is good for the soul. Caught In an
egrogious error, he will not admit bis fault, but
seeks to cover it by fresh evasions and mis
statements. On Friday at Ksopus the Demo
cratic candidate endeavored to explain away
the ridiculous blunder into which he fell the
week before when he charged that the Treas
ury Department was refusing tue public any
knowledge of its daily fiscal operations. Said
Judge Parker on October 31:
In the first sixty days of this fiscal year the
expenditures exceeded the revenues by $24,000.
000. How much more we have run behind since
wo are unable to state, owing to administrative
orders forbidding government officers from mak
ing public any statement of estimates on which
future appropriations are based. It Is safe to
assume from the making of the orders that there
has been no Improvement. Otherwise the public
would not be denied (sic) all Information pend
ing the campaign.
This is a plain charge that since August 29
the Treasury has been concealing its daily re
ceipts and expenditures. By "administrative
orders," Judge Parker alleges, a curtain of se
crecy has been drawn about the operations of
the Treasury. Yet we are nstonished to find
evidences in Friday's address that some later
information about daily receipts and expendi
tures has really leaked ont, and has even pene
trated as far as Esopus. Said Judge Parker on
Oct ber 28:
The deficit for the present fiscal year to Octo
ber 25 is over s^-1.000.000.
Where did tlw» Judge get this startling In
formation? Who has lifted the ban of secrecy
of which he complained so touchlngly on Octo
ber 21? How, In spite of "administration or
ders." has he been able to discover what lie de
clared to be undlsoverable? The Democratic
candidate fails to tell us. He has not the can
dor to admit that his earlier suppression chance
was a grotesque and childish confessi n of ig
norance. He lacks tbe courage to say that he
was utterly and foolishly mistaken. Evidently
he has discovered since that the Treasury issues
a daily statement showing its receipts and ex
penditures t.r the day. for the month and for
the current fiscal year. In fact, he uses this
statement in giving the net deficit up to Octo
ber 2">. But. though he thus refutes bimselt
he will not openly withdraw the indictment be
so rashly and lgnorantly framed against the
No; he prefers to bolster up his first Impossi
ble charge with another almost as futile and
ridiculous. He now asserts, in reply to criti
cisms cf his first statement, that he was justi
fied In making It because orders were actually
issued to rtiiefs of bureaus in the Treasury
and in other departments not to make public
their provisional estimates of expenses for the
fiscal year lOOS-'O'T. But those estimates have
no official character end have little or no value
as a means of forecasting the expenditures
which wi!! be finally authorized by Congress
for the next fiscal year. The bureau chiefs sub
mit figures for the guidance of the heads of
tbe departments, why must send formal esti
mates to Congress In December. These esti
mates are freely published as soon as made,
and they then undergo a rigid scrutiny in tlie
Appropriations Committee of the House of Rep
resentatives, In the Hcuse Itself, in the Senate
Committee on Approp|iations and in the Sen
ate. As a matter of fact, they are hardly rec
ognizable in the completed appropriation bills.
When Judge Parker complains of the suppres
sion of the first rough estimates of the bureau
chiefs, he complains of a practice established
in the Interest of good administration. Every
chief insists on tbe largest possible approprla
tirns for his own special work, and the head*
of departments are ofteu obliged to reduce the
figures originally submitted by from 25 to 50
per cent. The revised estimates are. of coursa.

priations askfd for can become available by
"The New-Yor* Evening Tost's" conv«pnnrl
ence from Washington yesterday contained this
comment on Judse Parker's latest criticism of
Treasury methods:
It is, of course, well known that this has been
the practice for years, and that no bureau officer
of good manners ever gives out his preliminary
estlrrates before they have be«=n approved at
headquarters. The approved estimates have this
y.jir been given out in regular coarse, ami in
soire cases commented on In these dispatches,
notably the postofnce estimates. President
Roosevelt's order on the preliminaries, however,
occasioned come misunderstanding at the time.
These preliminary or other estlrrates for the
year ending June 30. 1006 should not be con
fused with current expenditures, which are given
out *»very twenty-four hours.
It is painfully evident that Judge Parker
laokß either the capacity or the industry to
master the problems t >ward which he presumes
to pose as faithful studeut or caustic critic.
The Tribune was able to print recently a
gratifying piece of news regarding the Lacka
wanna Railroad Company. Steps have been
taken at Albany to secure the privilege of
tunnelling the Hudson, so that access may be
pained to this city without a resort to ferry
boat*. So long have the patrons of the linos
which now have formincls on the New -Jersey
shore been obliged to endure the inconveniences
of th« present transfer system that they are
pretty well Inured to it. When the nuisance Is
once removed, though, they will wonder at their
own patience in tho past and rejoice heartily
over the reform.
The purposes of the Lacka wanna should cause
no astonishment. In the days when the project
of n rnllway bridge across tu»> Hudson was fre
quently under discussion It was customary to
assume that all of the roads doing a suburban
business In New-Jersey would make use of It.
All the estimates of the revenue to be derived
from the structure were baaed on that suppo
sition. Hence the Peuusylvaula'a scheme for
filtering New-York was novel in two particu
lars. The company proposed not only to go
under the river instead of ovc-r It, but also to
have a monopoly of tbe facilities which it wan
about to create. The Long Island loud and
New-Haven system are feeders, not rivals, and
are to be accommodated accordingly: but time
of the lines Which compete with the Pennsyl
vania will be privileged to bring their trains to
the great underground station in Thirty-fourth
st. Hence It was not unreasonable to expect
action at an early day by the Lncsn wanna and
Erie companies, either separately or in com 11
nation. and it now appears that they are co
operating. One will take the lead in construct
ing an Independent tunnel but both are likely
to get the benefit of it.
The savins of time and trouble to the com
muter which will result from uninterrupted
transit to this city la so great an advantage
that imitation of the Pennsylvania's policy I*
almost a necessity. Prolonged neglect to follow
suit could not fall to affect the traffic receipts
of the other transportation companies. The
latter are wise enough to perceive the fact and
enterprising enotigh to net on their convictions.
It is now assarted "that th* oommon law. aa
d*v*lop*d, affords a complete legal r«mei»
against monopolies." But there la no oommon
law of th* United States. Its rul*s can b* *n
forced only by the State courts and officers.
No federal court or officer eouid take any action
whatever under them. It was this fact, coupled
with the inability of the States to control trusts
and monopolies, which lad to the passage of the
federal statutes known as the Sherman Anti-
Trust act and the Interstate Commerce act;
and it is enly through th* ex. re is. of th* pow
ers conferred by these acts, and by th* statutes
of the last Congress supplementing them, that
th* national government acquires any jurisdic
tion over the subject. To say that action
against trust* and monopolies should be limited
to the application of the common law ia equiva
lent to saying that the national government
should take no action whatever to regulate
them. — (President Roosevelt.

Judge Parker, in bis attempt to answer the

Such Ignorance as to government finance on the

The Interborough Company has made an

presses it, "of those who were suffering yester

Work on the new Campanl!. at Venice Is being

An ugly horse, that will not rest
Despite his stern commands.
He wonders, as he works away.
How long 'twill be before
H*'ll get his customer to pay /
That old unsettled score.
And yet he really dare not say
"Tour credit's good no more."
His task is done at ia«t. and then
The farmer says "That looks
Like a good job. If you don't mind
Please put It on the book?."
While the smithy longs to hand him on*
Of Jeffries' fierce lett hooks.
Then to the postoffice he goes
To get his morning mail;
The city jobber whom he owes
Is camping on his trail.
And says that he must settle up
In two weeks, without fall.
That night, when all the village folk
Are wrapped In slumber deep.
He nails a sign upon his shop
Ere he retires to sleep.
It Is a larg» and glaring sign
And reads "For Sale Dam Cheap."

Western Texas and .topping at a hotel, when
trouble started among s.»m<s cowboys, who pre

"It does not comport with the dignity of a Bos

President Hartley of Yale enjoys a good Jok*. even
if he himsei; be the victim. He tells the following
story on himself, according to "The Buffalo Com
mercial," and vouches for Its truthfulness: Mr.
Hadley was travelling with his wif« recently, when
they became aware of the close scrutiny of a f*\
love passenger, an elderly lady of motherly ap
pearance. The examination continued for some
time, when the old lady tiptoed over to Mrs. Had
ley and whispered sympathetically In her ear: "You
poor thing. I know all about it. I know just how
to sympathize with you. We have one In our fam
ily, too."
