Sequel to the Rhodes Tmil — More
Maneif Wanted.
London, October 5.
The traflltfonwl Iloms of Iyo:;t Causes is Ftlrro<3
with progfeaslve Impulses. The Rhodes) bequest

tnd foreifTv. students at Oxforxl and created an
Obligation to clop its resources r.s a modern
university wrhere men may have a practical
tralr.ir.K for life. This may not bay« been the
great ItnjpexiallstT*" mala motive, bat it is the
first consequence of a unique benefaction for the
benefit of Anglo-Saxon civilisation. A univer
sity of colleges, as Professor Goldwin Smith once
described it. must be released from tho unpro
gr?-ssive inefllciency < r ll isr<l by its own poverty
and <-'r wealth; and this can be Bjccomplished
anly by an enlargement of its endowment. Lord
Curznn. *he new Chancellor, has undertaken the
task of raising what is Lrded as the minimum
required for carrying on the work of th^ univer
sity in an enlightened spirit. This is £250,<VXV
a beggarly sum In comparison with the apsre
gatc gifts of ilthy Americans to their univer
sities and eoltegu ■ taring the last thirty years.
But no appeal is to be made to millionaires to
find the money. It is to be a family affair.
Oxford men — and ther* are twenty thousand of
them— are to be asked to provide the capital
r.eoded for an Increased equipment <'f the uni
versity for Its -work in the world. With £56,700
already subscribed, a body of trustees is to be
appointed and a general appeal sent out to
Oxford men to contribute the four-fifths of the
fur.d still uncovered. Literature is to be show
ered upon them, not perhaps In volume bo co
pious as in a campaign in favor of classical
Greek or in opposition to degrees for women, but
In toeabla quantity; and subscribers are to
b(T allowed the option of priving a lump sum
outright or of frrmeriner It over a term of years.
Oxford is to supply the new capital out of the
resour* f-s of its own household without help
from millionaire? outside; and aa "The York
shire Post" remarks with a sneer Rung across
eeas, ' ilieisj can be no sospiclon that the wells
of k-arnine. ar.d particnlariy those which con
cern economics, rur. a rifk of contamination at
their source."
There is in this appeal the reflex effect of
Cecil Rhodes's own conviction that everything
could be done with money and nothing without
It. He valued wealth, not for its own sake, but
as the niu—mij Instrument for carrying out
Imperial projects of world-wide Importance.
"What is the use of,id?as," he asked General
Gordon, "unless you have the means to carry
them out?" The bulk of his surplus wealth
-went Into this university scheme for securing
Anglo-Saxon co-operation in world politics, and
as soon as the Rhodes trust Is In practical
operation, conservative Oxford becomes stiffi
ciently modernised to perceive that an Inade
quate endowment is a source of fatal embarrass
ment in cprr>inpr out university ideals on broad
Knes. Larger reserves of capital are. urgently
needed for the work thrust upon Oxford of
training men from the colonies. America and
Germany and making good Anglo-Saxons of
them; and there is a combined effort supported
by approved methods of academic cadging, with
the Chancellor himself at the head of the beg
ging brigade, for raising the money. In life
Cecil Bhodes brooded over the great things
■which could be done with a lot of money behind
him. and •wherever he went he created an at
mosphere for large projects with a farreaching
trend. His Influence has not ceased with death.
Reluctantly and without much sympathy for
either the means or the end. Oxford has found
Itself committed to his dreamy Ideas, and is
awakening To the truth that there must be more
money behind them or they wfU be aa useless
as General Gordon's premonitions of altruism.
There are objectors who complain that reform
measures and practical legislation are more Im
portant than an Increased endowment. They
assi tt that nearly all the colleges are ri<-h and
that their resources ara wastefully used for
selfish ends. Instead of being employed for the
relief of the impoverished university. It is not
difficult for Bishop Gore to find counts for his
Indictment that the colleges have been con
verted Into recreation grounds for well born
Idlers, who live luxuriously end are Incapable
of serious work; nor is there. lack of evidence
that laboratories and other portions of the plant
are needlessly multiplied and that retrench
ments could be effected by amalgamations of
colleges and concentration of effort. Tho tradi
tional college system Is wasteful because so
much of the time and energies of coaches and
tutors Is taken up with grammar school work
for Idlers, in place of advanced study for genu
ine workers. Great advantages would be de
rived from a revision of examinations, >lar
ablps and methods of teaching and from a re
distribution of the •wealth of the colleges for
the relief of the impoverished university, whose
courses of study need to be broadened and sys
tematically modernized. The reformers can
raake oat a strong case for setting the house
In order; but when they have finished their
pleading? the truth remains that Oxford must
always b« a congress of self-governing collages
with their own individuality and characteristic
life. The system may be unscientific and waste
ful, but It is the ground on which the university
has stood for centuries. There can bo no other
foundation for mossgrown, storied Oxford.
The college system may be a serious obstruc
tion to the expansion of the university as a
Btronghold of learning for the scholarship of
the worid; but increasti capital will do much
to improve the equipment, to multiply professor-
Ships and courses, and to provide a thoroughly
modernized plant. The Chancellor has explained
What will be done with the new endowment
when It is raised, and few objections aro offered
to the proposals. The Bodleian is one of the
greatest libraries in the world, but it is over
crowded and unmanageable, and cannot , be
brought into thorough use without extensive
changes and enlargements and an exhaustive
reviEion of the catalogue. Chemistry and other
branches of science are neglected, and there is
-no department of scientific engineering. The
staff of lecturers in art* and letters, history and
.lwsguages Is inadequate, and many new pro
■, f^asonships and several additional buildings are
- requisite. These and other defects are pointed
> out, and £250,000 is the estimated cost of cover
ing what are considered necessaries, without
"*'hlch Oxford cannot do its work In a pro-
CTesslve epirlt and keep abreast with the praCr
tical requirements of the age. The money will
probably be raised aft^r a strenuous effort pro
longed for several years. Hut r.hen this is done
there will be fresh requirements and even more
urgent demands for enlargement of courses and
Improvement of educational plant. Cecil Rhodes,
living anew in the swarm cf colonial and for
eign students, will continue to brood over the
o!d quadrangles, and always with tho lnstinctivo
feeling of the capitalist that nothing can be done
without more money — a good deal of It.

What Correspondent Thinks the American
Bids Showed.
To tie Editor of The Tribune.
S:r: In comment on "Conl Transports for the
N.ivy • The Tribune errs a little when It states
that "Tho American response has been co small
as to provide for the carrying of scarcely one
tentli cf tho coal that will be needed for tho Pa
ciflc cruise." The navy proposal called for the de
llvery at various coal stations between Trinidad
and San Francisco of 133,000 tons of coal, end
enough American steamers were offered to convey
from W.MG to 70.000 tons— deficient tonnage, wo
fully deficient, but still a great flea! more than
one-tenth. Only one of these American steamers,
however, presented s bid based on tonnage; the
others, because of apparent extraordinary lack of
return cargoes, were offered on a time charter
basis. This latter proposition the Navy Depart
ment could not accept, and all but. one of the
American steamers were consequently withdrawn
fr<>m the competition.
The President's offer to pay American vessels 50
r>er cert more than the foreign rate was generous
in Uself, and under ordinary circumstances more
than sufficient. Biit this lack of return cargoeß
prevented the American steamers from undertak
ing a voyage to the Pacific, whence they would
probabty have to return in ballast for thirteen
thousand miles.
Their British rivals, built and manned on a far
lower wage scale, have the added advantage that
British mercantile houses dominate the Interna
tional commerce of the world. These British
houses prefer British steamers, so that the for
eign craft that convey our navy coal to the Pa
cific are reasonably sure of profitable fr.i»;hts to
Australasia or the Orient, whence additional
freights can be obtained for the United King
dom. American steamers, however, are practically
dependent on th« coast trada of the United States,
and this at the present time, with tlie competition
of tho transcontinental railroads and of the two
Isthmian routes, offers Bmall encouragement to
American vessels.
There, was no disposition on th» part of Ameri
can ship owners to take advantage of the neces
sities of their Kovernment, and the te.rm "extor
tionate" does net accurately describe their rates.
British steamers are taking navy coal to the Pa
cltic at from $t> 15 to $7 25 a ton. American steam
ers, assured of return cargoes, could and would
gladly take this same coal for from JS to $3. This
was carefully explained to the Navy Department
But the most Important aspect of the whole mat
ter, and this one which, I regret to say. The Trlb
une's editorial comment overlooks, Is that there
are not fiixugh American steamers offered all told.
even If tlioir rutes were low, to convey the Indis
pensable coal supplies of our Atlantic fleet <>n It 3
cruise to the Pacific Ocean. We are dependent,
therefore, upon foreign vessels, which would al
most ■• Inly fall us in caso of actual war. The
Pacific cruise was undertaken to show "-.ir naval
Btrength, but In exposing oi;r l:n k of an essential
naval reserve It is simply demonstrating our weak

Asked about the possible appointment of a spe

Governor bad nothing to pay. When asked what
be thought of the fusion ticket he was equally retl
cent, it will be recalled that Governor Hughes on
Tuesday ni^ht. Just before leaving for the James
town exposition, was asked alout tho desirability
of a fusion ticket At that time he would not com
ment on It. '
It was Ii jirned authoritntivcly l-u«t nlcht that th«
Governor tak"s tho position that the responsibili
ties of tho governorship aro all that he is charges
with at this time, and that he Is not called on to
Interfere la a local political situation with tho
shaping of which he has bad nothing to do. Hav

publican County Committee with reference to the
desirability of fusion with the Hearst men, he wiH
not now say anythli ■ either in tho way of criticism
nr praise of ti»» ticket that b;ui been named. This
irunns that President Parsons and his friends will

An unvarying quality of good sense has so far
marked the public utterances of Governor Hughes
of New York state. Tho latest evidence of thla In
telligent reasonableness la given in connection with
the fact that some of the labor unions have found
fault with the ftovernor for not appointing a labor
man to the Public Service Commission. In reply to
mil of these criticisms Governor Hughes says:
"In making appointments I have selected _>r' those
available m»-n whom 1 believe t<-> bo best qualified
for the respective coattioaa in this way it is say
purpose to protect the proper Interests of members
of labor organizations u-s well as those of other
citizens. Keeently I appointed to Urn office of com
missioner of labor John Williams, who was Indorsed
by many citizens familiar with the needs of the
department and by numerous labor organization*,
and who. I am informed. is a member and was ones
general preaMent of the United Brotherhood of Car
penters and Joiner.; of America. I appointed him
»>ecause I was satisfied of bis fitness I'or the place.
The best contribution I can make to the welfare of
working men Is to secure so far as possible efficient
and Impartial administration of government. This
Is tny constant aim. and to attain It I appoint th«
best men I can get and men who I believe will serr*
the people faithfully and will be just to all In
This Is, of course, the only proper standard for
an executive to set up and follow, and every person
of good sens«» should be satisfied with the doctrine)
and the explanation.
