though tho contract imposes I: upon tns
contracting company, in Justice Dowl
ing's language, "the duty of^preparing
"detail and working drawings for the
"carrying into effect of the general
"plans and specifications furnished by
"the Department, of Bridge^," and
makes it "responsible for the correctness
"of drawings, even though they had
"been approved by the Commissioner."
The' burden of this tight should he taken
up by. the new administration, for. the
taxpayer who secured the* present in
junction has done all that could reason
ably be expected of a private person in
the protection of the mjhihf interests.
The enjoining of this pay*nent is a yic
*tory for The Tribune, which exposed the
blunder in the bridge, and,* although the
Bridge Commissioner at Erst protested
that, .this was unnecessary, led to th.^
lightening of the structure! sufficiently
to make it safe, in the opinion' of. engi
neers, for i much restricted use. The
Tribune, moreover, haS all along opposed
the payment of the company until its
responsibility under the terms of its
contract should be impartially investi
gated and authoritatively established.
It bas done thiß in the face of an ad
ministration which Wished tO hide the
blunder. It hopes for in" different at
titude from the coming administration.
THE YEAR AT' HOME.
From the national pWint of view the
chief event of the year |tQO was the ad
vent of a new administration, followed
by President Taft's summons to Con
gress to meet in extra- session for the
purpose of revising the tariff schedules.
After nearly five months of labor at
"VYasbingon the Payne tariff law dis
placed the Dingier tariff law. A com
plete revision of our tariff system is a
political accomplishment of great impor
tance, Changes in tariff rates affect di
rectly hundreds of thousands of persons
engaged. in commerce and industry. In
directly they affo'i every consumer,
which means, every citizen and every
alien resident within our borders. Every
new tariff "law is therefore a milestone
in political and economic history. '/, ,
The taTiff law of 1909 has been bitterly
assailed as not accomplishing enough." in
the way of reducing duties, lowering' the
cost of living and abating supposedly
excessive advantages given to the do
mestic manufacturer. A tariff law is
necessarily more .or less a * compro
mise and can seldom = meet the wishes
oven of the legislative majority which
passes it. But whatever the shortcom
ings of the act of 1009. it must be con
ceded that it marked .1 significant de
parture in the policy of the Republican
parry and opened the way for a more
rational treatment of tariff problems and
for their dissociation from merely parti
san politics. A Republican administra
tion mid a Republican Congress for the
first time undertook a revision intended
to moderate protective duties. The Re
publican national, platform of 190S bail
laid down the — enirely accept
able to 'the great body of the voters of
the- country — that the protective duly
should equal the differential in cost of
production- here and abroad and allow,
in addition, a reasonable margin of
profit to the domestic producer. But on
attempting to apply the principle it was
found that no machinery existed for de
termining >vitli"any accuracy the differ
ential'in cost of production,; and Con
gress, acting. in the dark, hesitated to
make reductions in protective n **>■ not
clearly shown to be necessary :sr i equi
table.
The situation was unfortunate, yet li
cannot be said that Congress was not
justified in erring on the side of caution
rather than on the side of recklessness.
The Payue law's highest merit was th; 1 -
it tried to make the recurrence of su>
■ situation impossible. It provided th?
means for ascertaining the different*"
in cost of production here and abroaa
and for checking the claims for protec
tion made by doaftestic producers. It
thereby laid the foundation for I scien
tific revision of tjie schedules in the
near future. Moreover, it modernized
our tariff system j>y establishing max
imum and minimum schedules, thus.al
lowing the Presideut 10 return conces
sions or to meet discriminations on the
part of other nations by enforcing alter
native scales of duties known definitely
in advance. The double schedule tbus
obviated the necessity of a burdensome
resort to special reciprocity treaties or
to retaliatory legislation in individual in
stances. The Payne law also did tardy
economic justice to the people of the
Philippine Islands, giving free admission
to the products of the archipelago to an
extent which will permit a natural
growth of trade between the United
States and Its Far Eastern dependency.
In many important respects, therefore,
the Payne law marks an advance on the
three other tariff Jaws of the last two
decades.
A significant political development of
the extra session was the breach created
in the Democratic party on the issue of
taxed or iin taxed raw materials. An in
fluential element in the party in both
the Senate and the House of Representa
tives out loose from the tariff doctrines
of Messrs. Cleveland. Mills and Wilson
and adopted what, is practically a policy
of —derate protection,' disguised under
a demand for equally distributed tax
ation on all import?, whether raw ma
'er!; Is or manufactured articles. Sen
tor Joseph W. Bailey, of Texas, led the
Pt cession, and he arid William .1. Bryan
an 1 nov at swords': points on the tariff
question. The Southern Democracy,
after having deposed Samuel .1. Randall
as Speaker of the House of, Representa
tives, seems to be drifting rapidly
toward a revival of . .andallisru.
An incidental result of the extra ses
sion was the submission by Congress to
the state legislatures of a proposed
amendment to the Constitution enlarg
ing the direct taxing power of the fed
eral government. No constitutional
amendment had been submitted since
1809, and there had come to be a popular
belief that no more experimentation of
that sort would be attempted. Only one
state acted on the amendment in 1900,
the Legislature of Alabama voting 10
ratify it. •:_ ■■ .V

THE YEAR ABROAD.
In other lands than ours the year which
is? just past was marker by many con
stitutional activities, chiefly of a liberal
and progressive nature, and in several
Cases having their provocation in fiscal
disputes: by settlements or steps tow
ard settlement of Internationa] contro
versies, some of them of long existence
and some of exceptional exacerbation,
and .by gratuitous and benevolent la
bors for the increase and. confirmation
of friendship among the nations. The
most striking achievements in tbe first of
these classes were in the East. In Tur
key the Sultan came out of his reign-long
hiding and mingled freely with the peo
ple, but was not able to avoid at least the
'suspicion of hostility to the constitution:
wherefore . he was promply deposed and
the subjection of the palace to the con
stitution was irrevocably established. In
Persia also tiie Shah was deposed for
open enmity <* the constitution. in
China provincial legislatures were elect
ed and other steps were la ken toward
perfecting 'he constitutional system at
the appointed time, and Yuan Shih Kai,
oue of the chief viceroy?, was retired to
private life for alleged double dealing
wltblbe reforms. Russia strongly con
firmed the efficiency of the Douina, but
unhappily began a campaign against the
constitutional rights of Finland.

tion of income taxation, old age pen

Belgium lost her King by death and in
stalled his successor. Spain suffered seri
ous seditious and Socialist riots, marked
by gross excesses, after which* she put
to death her foremost exponent of philo
sophic anarchy and atheism. Sweden,
like France, had a futile "universal"
strike of Socialist origin. Portugal had
a Cabinet crisis. The suffrage It o agita
tion in Great Britain was pushed to
scandalous extremes, while in Norway
woman suffrage was put into practice
without sensation. Japan continued con
stitutional reforms in Corea, despite the

idency of Colombia. wbi* • lie had held

Mr. Zelaya, after a despot i and corrupt
rule. was driven to resign the presidency
Of Nicaragua in the face of a revolution.
Noteworthy steps toward the settle
ment of disputes were taken by Great
Britain and the United States concern
ing the old fisheries and boundary water
ways controversies. A tripartite conven
tion was made among the United States,
Panama and Colombia, which the last
named failed to ratify. Turkey, Austria
and Servia Came to agreement over the
Bosnia-Herzegovina business. France and
Germany submitted their Morocco dis
pute to The Hague, with happy results.
Chili and Peru still wrangled, but Bo
livia and Peru adjusted serious difficul
ties after arbitration by Argentina bad
failed. Practically all issues between
Venezuela and the United States were
disposed of. Negotiations between China
and Russia and between China and Japan
over llanchnrtan affairs proceeded satis
factorily. The principle of the open door
in China for American capital was estab
lished after vigorous action by our State
Department and diplomats. Good re
sults were secured from an anti-opium
conference of the powers at Shanghai at
the initiative of the United States. Spain

tcrnutional friendships wsra largely , ■<•

sions. President i aft visited Panama
and bad a ■ meeting with President Diaz
on ihe Uexicfca border, the understand
in? hat sail the United States and Mex
ico regarding Central America was main*
tamed. The European heads of states
did much visiting, especially important
being the visits of the Czar to England
nnd Italy and the meetings of the French
President with the C/.ar and the Kins of
England and of the German Emperor and
the Czar. ; Arrangements were also made
for a meeting this year at; Monaco be
tween the German Emperor ami the
French President. Noteworthy state
ments were made by the German Ambas
sador, to America, the Chancellor and the
Foreign Minister, . and approved by the
Emperor, concerning Germany's colonial
policy, which was declared to be void of
aggression against any other country. A
conference of ihe powers in London re
suited In valuable additions to the inter
national law of maritime warfare. "An
American commission visited Liberia for
the encouragement and aid of that strug
gling country. On the whole, therefore,
it was a year In which civilization got
materially forward with little use of the
powder cart.
DISCOVERY AXD SCTEXCE.^-
The year just ended has been Tendered
memorable by striking achievements in
polar research. A British explorer in
January went within ninety-seven goo
graphical miles of tbe southern end of
the earth's axi?. and about three months
later an American reached the North
pole As Lieutenant Shackleton was
able to place beyond much doubt the gen
eral cnnraetci of the region a round the
goal which he barely missed, bis work
deserves almost as much applause from
the geographical world as Commander
Peary's. By a dramatic coincidence two
explorers within I few days of each other
laid claim to rinding the North role, the
avowed performance of one antedating
the achievement of his rival by a full
year. That BBS first claimant was an
impostor was eventually established by a
tribunal whose competency nobody .could
dispute, and thus was terminated a con
troversy which was embarrassing while
It lasted and which threatened to be per
petual. ::'z...'. :.;:—. u---;
Striking advances in aerial navigation
were effected in 1000. ■ Count' Zeppelin
built a dirigible balloon which made a
continuous voyage of 886 miles in thirty
seven hour?. The performance was dis
tinctly superior'to any of the same aero
naut the year before, but as the type of
airship which tbe Wurtemberger has
done so much to improve is apparently
near the limit of its development the feat,
is less significant than the exhibition re
cently given of the qualities of the aero
plane. The first public trials of heavier
ihan-air machines were made only about
eighteen months ago. During 1909 at
If helms and nearly a dozen- other foreign
cities there were genuine races in the air
such as have bad no precedent in history,
and rarely iv these competitions did any
thing but aeroplanes participate. It has
now been demonstrated that the aero
plane is much swifter than the dirigible
balloon — an immense strategic advantage
in military service — though thus far It
has not shown, and perhaps never will
show, tbe ability to make equally long
flights.. M Rheims CttrttM and Blcriot
travelled at au average speed, of forty
eight miles an hour,. and within the last
few days De la Grange bas surpassed
there by about a mile. At present Latham
enjoys the distinction of having made the
longest jouiriey with an aeroplane (about
-m** hundred miles), and Orville Wright
holds the record for height (sixteen hun
dred feet) ; but all of these aebi^-ements
are likely to be eclipsed another year.
By crossing tbe English Channel In ( an
aeroplane Bl£riot created a world-wide
sensation, yet he did not begin to travel
so far as the Wrights and others have
repeatedly gone.
The year has marked a distinct stage
in the development of the American navy.
Almost simultaneously six battleships to
which the one-calibre gun principle is
applied have been completed. Each of
four is bigger thau the Connecticut by
4,000 or 5,000 tons and has a speed ex
ceeding that of the flagship of the Atlan
tic fleet by three or four knots. Much
the finest of these vessels, the North Da
kota, travelled at the rate of more than
twenty-two knots over a measured mile,
thus beating the best performance si her
sister ship, the Delaware. It is claimed
that In her endurance trials tb- North
Dakota also showed tbo lar&teat fu-.»' ■ on
omy. Not the least gratifying feature of
the North Dakota is her equipment witb
a steam turbine of American design. The
Atlantic fleet, composed of sixteen battle
ships, completed its voyage around the
world on February 21, having travelled
42.800 miles in fourteen months.
Two events besides the trials of the
North Dakota have brought the turbine
engine to the fore within the last few
months. For the first time in history
transatlantic liners, propelled by Parsons
turbines, have travelled at the rate
of twenty-six knots. It has re
cently become known that the task of
better adapting the turbine to the work
of propulsion has been undertaken by Ad
miral Melville, once engineer in chief of
the American navy. Thus far the gear
ing which he would interpose between
engine and propeller shaft has been sub
jected only to shop tests, and no accu
rate estimate of its value is yet possible.
Tlie prominence of the inventor and the
large economies which be aims to secure,
however, justify a close scrutiny of fur
ther experiments with his gearing.
An important physiological discovery
is that of the germ causing the hook
worm disease, by Dr. Stiles, of the United
States Public Health Service, the utiliza
tion of which has been liberally promoted
by Mr. John D. Rockefeller..- .
Three occurrences last year were of
Special significance to astronomers. Pro
fessor George B. Hale obtained spectro
scopie evidence that ai sun spot is often
the scene of magnetic activity. A new
reason is thus afforded for suspecting
that there may be a relation between
solar nud terrestrial storms. Mars has
just, approached the earth more closely
than jit any previous time for fifteen
years, Little that is new on its surface
has been observed, but the Astronomical
and Astrophysics I Society of America lias
taken occasion i" pronounce the talk
about exchanging signals with thai planet
absurd. Halley's comet baa veriticd the
prediction that it would reappear either
in 1009 or 1910. The honor of first ascer
taining its return belongs to Dr. Wolf, of
Heidelberg, whip employed photograph)

Drink deeply of charity's nectar.
Let your actions be kindly, for then
You'll ba hailed as a real benefactor"
