Some features of tho task presented by the project for a deep waterway from the lakes to the <»ulf are discussed ia its latest issue by "Engineerinp News." At the low wat^r stag© In the lUnyjasfntt] a depth of eight and one-half or nine feet haß been maintained for the last ten years by dredging at a number of places. The resolution adopted at the Memphis con vention calls for a depth of fourteen feet. The demand for an Increase of about five feet peerns like a modest one. but "Engineering News' regards the hesitation of the backers of the scheme to ask for more an an Indication that they appreciate the difficulties which must he overcome in carrying out their wishes. The chief embarrassment besetting the enter prise is extreme variability in the level of the Mississippi in the course of twelve months. In t order to eecure something like uniformity in this particular, or at least to insure an ade qnate 6upply of water during the dry season, dams or works of an allied nature have fre quently been proposed. Our contemporary does not cherish much confidence in the feasibility of such expedients. The alluvial character of the plain through which the river flows affords no promise of stable foundations. "Engineer ing News" also discourages the proposition to reinforce the Mississippi by drawing on Lake Michigan. , The periodical here mentioned is convinced that the grain and other products for which im proved transportation facilities are needed in the groat central valley of the United States could be handled more economically by boats capable of using a fourteen foot channel than by typical lake steamers. Though doubts of the possibility of maintaining a depth of even issrteen feet are betrayed, an attempt to secure anything creater appears to "Engineering News" unadvisable. if not undesirable In the execution of the project, with the purpose of which President Roosevelt evinced hejirty sympathy at Memphis the other day It will be necessary to face formidable proi>' lems, no doubt, and the sooner they are raised for discussion the sooner they will Im» solved When tho subject comes before Congress that body may well Ibe guided by the Information obtained and the suggestions offered by the fwrarninent surveyors who have recently* been •taoTlna: the matter. If exact precedents for the work cannot be found in measures pre viouFlr adopted for the control of ti, Mls fc.Efcipp! or of other rivers, it would bo fooMsh to ewume that patience and ingenuity will not rise to the present emergency. Our con temporary certainly does not pronounce 'h* 1 undertaking beyond the skill of the profes sion which it represents. THE A XTI-FEDEItALISTS. In its last Issue "Harper's Weekly" takes v" i to t»sk for not understanding the attitude of the new nnti-federalists, who, following cx i Judge Parker's example, are bo greatly per turbed at wliiif they call the "usurpations" of ' the federal government. We took pains to say thai .i certain cloudiness in Uie:r logic made it difficult to understand these "neo-C'alhoun it«s." The editor of "Harper's Weekly" con ! tends, on the contrary^ that they are neither j cloudy in thought nor justly to be classified as ! Calhouujtes. JW'e called attention to Mr. Par j ker's assert at Portland. Me.", that "at "tempts to despoil the states of the powers "and functions belonging to them bovc created j "Indignation and that the recent Issue of in junctions by the inferior federal courts "re "strainiug the operation of the legislation of "a sovereign state seemed to some, doubtless I ••i.;n the culmliiatiou of a series of assaults j "by the federal govcrnmeni upon the state gov | "erniiK'iits." Several Southern aud two West ern (IbveriibrH have complained bitterly (> f such Interference. Vet though ex-Judge Pnrker as , an anti-federalist sympathizes with this demon Btratiou of pain and annoyance he cannot as ' a lawyer agree that it lias nn afieqtiaie justi fication, since lie admits that "by tlie Four- I "te-»nth Amendment the power has been eon | "forred upon the courts by the United Stutes "to set aside state statutes, and stai nstltu ; "tlons as well, if they deprive any person of i ••life, liberty or property without clue process of "taw." We urged that the neo-Calbounites — those who insist that the powers nnd functions of the states an- being "usurped" by the federal government —^et together and agree on h state ment of wrongs. Chief Justice Walter dark of ilie Supreme Court of North Carolina holds that tli<- Supreme Court of the United States exercises a "usurped" power when it invali dates an act of Congress. Governors lilenn and < 'onier believe that tin lower federal courts bave no right t>> suspend ilie operation of a state law pending an Inquiry as to Its consti tutionality. Mr. Parker seemed lo intimate i;i hi* recent Jamestown exposition speech thai Congress bad infringed <>n state rights wheu it passed a law regulating hours of labor and liabilities for injury on railroads engaged In interstate commerce. But Governors Glenn and Comer iniu'li? not consider this 8 clear ease of '"usurpation." Let us have a bill «>f particu lars and then we shall know for what the mod ern anti-federalists really stand. Tlie editor of "Harper's Weekly" says that the Governors of Alabama and North Carolina nre not friends but enemies of state rights. That is something specific. But who are ihe real friends of state rights and what is their programme? Let "Harper's Weekly" answer: They nre opposed to the i xercisa !■>• the states of s federal power, as they are opposed to ihe exenise of any power by the state or by the nntion which neither •-talc nor nation po- . and as they are opposed to the unwise and in judicious exercise of a power wbi< h is otherwise. unquestioned. The new anti-federalists are for a "just dis tribution" of powers. But bow is a distribu tion of any Und to be made unless some prin ciple of interpretation is laid down and fol lowed? Is the benefit of the doubt to be given to the state or the nation? The Constitution is a living tiling, and its construction Is a ner< r ending process. Do ex-Judge Parker and "Har per's Weekly" want to devitalize it by w>\>.!c back to strict construction theories? T»o they want to undo history and reinvest the state* with all their lost assertions of sovereignty? Some definite rule must be applied. They should evolve such g ni ie and then call a con gress of modern anti-federalists to make it uniform and binding. BEBVIA'B RISIXQ IIOPF. In no part of the world, gg a Vienna corre spondent reminds us elsewhere In to-day's Trib une, lias the illness of the Emperor-King Fran cis Joseph been regarded with more concern than in the Balkan states, nnd especially In Servia and in those principalities and provinces which once formed toe old and great Servian Empire. That is partly because of the intimate relations which have long, nnd for natural rea sons, existed between Austria-Hungary nnd Ser via ; partly because bo large a part of what we may call Servia Irredenta is under ▲astro-Hun garian rule, and partly— and for present consid eration most particularly— because of the epoch making crisis in Servian affairs which seems to be Imminent and which can scarcely be regard* d as other than inevitable In the not remote fut ure, and with which the Uapsburg Kaiser is very closely related. The frame ot assassination at Belgrade, which has been played on occasions ever sin^e the monstrous murders of King Alexander and Queen Draga, has at inst provoked something much like a crisis. Our dispatches yesterday told tiuit the former Prefect of Police at I'.ei grade had disclaimed responsibility for tho murders in prison of two men who hnd been conspicuous critics of the regicides and had Charged the Minister of the Interior with direct. personal responsibility for the crimes and with having been present at their commission. To day's special advices add that the murders In question have moved somo of the great powers to demand explanations from King Peter; that that unhappy sovereign, the beneficiary of the regicides, appears to realize tho Impossibility of making satisfactory explanations, and that therefore, yielding to the counsels of despair, he has heeu moved to seek the protection of Aus tria-Hungary. Despite the traditional hostility between the Hapsburgs and his race, lie is said to hHve tried to conclude with the dual realm a treaty under which possession o f <no Bjervi an throne would be gterautoed to him and his lieir^ while in return that throne would be placed under u lf . practical suzerainty of Austria-Hun Buy, and Servia thus be reduced to a position scarcely better than that of Bosnia and Herge govina. That such an arrangement, involving the abandonment of their cherished and le-itimate national aspirations, would be meekly acqui esced in by the Servian people is scarcely con ceivable. Nor does it seem likely that it would be approved by all the great powers. Indeed, one or two of the latter are known to be decid edly antipathetic to any farther extension of Austro-Hungarian dominance in the Balkans. Thus for the time our venerable friend, the War Cloud in the Balkans— a diplomatic rather than n military war cloud— is centred over Servia rather than over the Macedonian "Lumber Room of Bwope" and extends its shadows far beyond the borders of the peninsula. In view of these things the Intense importance of Francis Jo seph's health to Servia is obvious. Ills illness lias interrupted and jwstponed the conclusion of the protectorate arrangement, and upon the out come of that illness depends the further conduct of those negotiations. The ambition of Servia is nothlug less thnn the reconstruction of the old Servian Empire under the natural "law of nationalities" ami under an acceptable and competent native dy nasty. Bach an empire would comprise the present Kingdom of Servia, the principality of Montenegro, the provinces of Bosnia and Herze govina. Dalmatia, the banate of Croatia and other parts of the Hungarian Kingdom, and considerable parts of Albania and Macedonia, with a total population variously estimated at from nine to thirteen millions. To some the M seems rMtttarj, to othe.ra- quite prac ticable. Its realization depends chiefly upon NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, SUNDAY. OCTOBER 13. 1007, three things. One is the break-up of the dual realm, which will not occur while Francis Jo seph is on the throne, but which is pretty gen erally expected to follow closely upon the seat ing of bia successor. Another is the moral backing, :tt least, of one or two of the great powers, and that is now believed t<i be pretty well assured. The third is a statesman ruler, wiio <-.i:M give to the realm a more creditable aud profitable government than has been given by or is to be hoped from either the Obrenovlteb or the Karageorgeviteh dynasty, it is to be as sumed that h< . too, will not be lacking when the time comes. THEjiPAXGS OF CHAyGE. When be advised the abolition of Princeton clubs aud the introduction of the quadrangle system, last June, President Wilson evidently trusted the poet's assurance that "ancient and boly tblugs fade like a dream." Maybe some ancient and holy things do flee at this appall ing raie xilo oblivion, but the customs aud sen tlments of an old college are not among them. The voluminous outpouring of wrath from the long sealed vials of the "old grads" of Nassau now arguing In the college papers against the proposed upheaval in Prlncetonlan ways of life ruusi have convinced President Wilson ere this that th" supposed "rationality" of the quadrangle system will not suffice as an argu ment for bis revolution. The pangs of change must be recognized and treated with respect and amvsthetics. The champions of the quadrangle should not exult too greatly over the fact that nearly all the red hot letters to the editor in the college alumni journals fail to advance any clinching argiiinent against President Wilson's project, It is true that quadrangles are n<>t proved bad "because they will make college o 'grind,'" "because ilii'y fall to abolish college cliques," or "because Lucy will ruin rrinrrtou jitlilctics." Colleges might well i>e more of I "grind'! for the average student than they now are: fail ure to abolish cliques Is inevitable under any system; and the lii^rli order of athletics at Eng lish eolloges makes groundless the fears of the friends of brawn. But the advisability of abolishing the clubs of Nassau is not yet proved, ami much less that of wiping ont the fraternity system in all other colleges. There Is still to be asked nnd answered the crucial question whether the advantages of such a radical departure more thaii offset il>e pang* of change and. their numerous indirect effects. Especially In a privately endowed college, the sentiments of the "old grads" always must be reckoned as th<> Institution's most valu able ass< not to be weakened save for the gravest reasons. Now. it is fairly evident that the driving power back <«f all the arguments of incensed correspondents is that Intense con servatism characteristic of the cultured Amer ican In all his political, religious and aca demic thoughts and Ideals. The "old grads" are as unwilling to upset the established order as they arc to inrii the Declaration of Inde pendence over to the Simplified Spelling Board for phonetic revision and to the Civic Federa tion for philosophical editing-. Unless it works mightily for the everlasting Balvntion of undergraduateß-to-be. why break every ex ternal tie between the old clubman and Nas sau. Tills sentimentality may be laughed at by the rationalists; bui II is human nature and must be bandied with care. TO! RTEBY STOPS. 1 * If the Informal opinion of the Public Service Coinmisaion about "courtesy stops.'' becoa i legally validated ruling of that body .'i minor reform of unquestionable value will have been effected, it will not only throw an additional safeguard aboul the travelling public, but will also contribute no! a little to : ag the hostility of the massed against tourists with ;i "pull." The "courtesy stop" Is, ire believe, an Institution peculiarly American. Bureiy In <>f tho more advanced European countries can a friend of the general manager or n cousin of <>i;e of the directors bave ;i limited train stop for his own pera »nal convenience :it some way station Ignored by the train's schedule. The rights of the passengers who bave purchased transportation with the understanding that the train Is truly limited are respected In mon archical lands far more scrupulously than in our own democracy. While the American's no tion that every train la meant for his own pri vate convenience (if he ran only make the offi cials think so) Is n rtock theme of the European humorist and Americanophoblac. serious delays and even appalling accidents continue to occur «t Intervals In our land of freedom as a result of the custom. Loud bave been the walla of tii<,se who have suffered thereby; the complaints of railroad officials and employes have usually been quite us vigorous, though not always bo frank as those of the offended or Injured apas- Bengers. Tl pinion of the Public Service issioa that "courtesy stops" constitute discrimination and are, therefore, Illegal is balled with <!« light by railroad men from presi dents down to towermen. Not even tli»; small minority benefiting by "courtesy stops" hns a good word for the outlawed practice. This both pleases and amuses the visitor from Mars. R« is delighted ;it the altruism that con demns bo unsparingly this dangerous favorit ism, but be cannot repress a kindly smile at the, cry, "Deliver us from ourselves"— whicb everybody Is sending up to the government The entire public baa long seen the evils of the "courtesy atop" as a general practice, but nearly every citizen makes an exception <>f himself **on fpe< ial occasions." The seanh for favoritism is by no means an exclusive frailty of those who travel in private cars; excursion parties fre quently plead to nave their cars attached to limited trains and dropped at a way station; returning summer tourists want their baggage handled out of their turn, and "peanut" poli ticians know no limit to their demands, many of which are fnr more unjust than the "courtesy stop." apparently unable t<> overcome selfish impulses unaided, then, ■ large part of the pub lic welcomes n law forbidding favoritism. If the man from Mars waxes mirthful over this weak ness of will be must Bt least recognize the In herent goodness of those who seek t<r be deliv ered from temptation. It now remains to !.<• seen whether men will <lo under the law what they cannot without it. LABORERS' HIRE IS CBURCHEB. The question of preachers' salaries, which is being much agitated in the Central West, must l»e regarded aa bearing a close and vital rela tion to that of declining nnd dying churches. Which we have recently discussed in these col umn! ami which, following our discussion of it, has been widely taken up by both the secular and the religious press. There is no doubt that many rural churches :>re declining and even dying because of the poor quality «»f ministerial servieo which is civen to them. Nof is that nt nil straiiKo. it must he remembered that thp Pen tecostal pift to the original Apostles was intel lactUnl as well :is spiritual. The successor of the Aposiles today must also have Intelleetnal power as well as spiritual consecration. One of the rural churches to Which we recently re ferred ns having died luul before its demise been served chiefly by "supplies" from a neigh boring theological seminary— callow youths reading i<> the congregation their schoolboy es says In place of sermons! There can he no doubt, either, that the poor quality of ministerial service ls pretty directly and generally due to the wretched pittances which are paid to a large proportion of rural clergymen. There are today within the Ruii urbs of New York, not to mention more remote parts of the country, mpn devoting their whole lives to pastoral work for stipends contrasted with which the wages of carpenters and brick layers seem princely. Some of them are men of high gifts and of university culture. Some are men of spiritual exaltation so great that they are willing and glad to serve in such fashion. But such men are growing fewer and are being drawn from the small churches to larger ones in the cities. More and more rural pulpits are being filled by Intellectual weaklings or by those whose hearts are not in the work, but who. through sheer shiftlessness and lack of ambition, are willing to accept any work which will assure them a livelihood. Such men can not build up churches. They cannot even keep them built up. In recent years nearly all wages and prices have materially risen except preachers' salaries. The cost of living lias risen. The wages of ar tisans of all kinds have been greatly increased, llveu the salaries of school teachers have shown nn upward tendency. But ministers' salaries have generally remained stationary, though in m.my places they have actually declined. Tt would not lie difficult to find within the suburbs of Xew V»>rk a church which demands the entire services of a man of high scholarship and de voted life, and expects" him to give such services and to maintain his family and make provision for his old age on wages of $10 or $12 a week, .•mil which, tn cap the climax, gives an occa gional "donation party," exploits its own gen erosity in thus making him handsomo gifts, and then quietly charges him with the sum total of the "donations" as so much paid on his salary account ! It would be contrary to human nature and to the divine dispensation if such churches did not decline. Th«y deserve northing better. And those who are concerning themselves with the question of maintaining the vitality of rural churches could do nothing more advantageous than to devise. If possible, some system under which o prencher would be treated at least as well as a mechanic or a farmhand, and under which the hire would be worthy of the laborer. < - .>!onei Bryan Intends to lecture this fall and winter on "The Needs of Democracy."

Baron Rosen, the Ambassador from Russia. Ba roness Rosen and their daughter. Baroness Eliza beth Rosen, arrived at the embassy to-night from Xew York, where they spent several days on their way from Magnolia. Quantities of flowers were «ent to the embassy as a greeting from Baroness Rosen's friends. The return of the Russian Am bassador makes the fifth diplomat of his rank at the capital, all of whom have almost their complete staffs with them.
