The difficulties in the way of legisla
tion intended to simplify and modernize j
administration in the executive depart- j
ments at Washington are Illustrated by j
two deadlocks on pending bills between
the Senate an,d the House of Representa
tives. In one case the House is fighting

good management, and in the other the !
Senate is the obstacle to a common sense
plan of readjustment-
Tbe House Committee on Naval Af
fairs has exhibited a curious obstinacy
in opposing Secretary Meyer's reforms.
It is agreed outside of a narrow circle
of staff officers Interested in perpetuat
ing the Bureau of Equipment that the
usefulness of that bureau has departed.
Its functions have shrivelled up since
•tteaxu replaced sails as the motive power j
on shipl>oard, nntl the unimportant duties j
which ii now discharges could easily be
shifted to Other bureau.-. But Secretary
Meyer's sensible suggestion that the
bureau be abolished failed to meet the
approval of the House of Hepr«*senta- !

thru liody are now IfTteg to strike from ,

•weight in Congress when balanced
r.g^jnst '.ise merely abstract ;•< i.-idera

On ill" s*<oi«l h'll the Senate's at ii
4adn is squarely reversed. It is stand

Secretary of Commerce ad Labor Is c#j
offido president of the Lighthouse Board |
:icd nominally responsible for Its admin
istration of the lighthouse service. But
the board is composed of three army
officers, two navy officers and one civil
ian. Tup army and navy members are
designated l»y tbe heads of the War and J
Navy departments and they elect one of j
their number chairman and appoint he
sides ■ military secretary and a naval
secretary. Business is done altogether
on the hi service plan, eacb military |
branch standing on its prerogatives and !
demanding exactly tbe same amount of j
recognition as is accorded to the other. ;
It is charged that the spirit of etiquette
lias dominated the service nither than I
tbe spirit of efficiency. It i? obvious, at ;
any rate, that ■ single bureau bead, re
sponsible to the Secretary of Commerce .
and Labor, would be a great Improve- !
ment on the existing system of divided
authority. Yet the Senate conferrees are
resisting the change, apparently because
the continuance of the present system is
desired by officers of the two military
establishments to whom assignments to
the Lighthouse Board appeal as a pleas
ant variation of duty.
There seem to i>c many queer cross
currents in legislation which threaten
shipwreck to measures that aim at ad

Mayor Gaynor deserves thanks for in
teresting himself in the charges of graft
in connection with the naturalization
process, for collecting or causing to be
collected the evidence of its existence
and for calling the attention of the At
torney General to this mean thievery.
It is another illustration of the Mayor's
capacity for attention to the various
phases of government that ■ matter
outside his own province should have
been handled with such thoroughness.
The •'holding up" of applicants for
naturalization papers is a particularly
detestable variety of graft, and we hope
every one who has bad a hand in It will
be caught and receive exemplary pun
ishment. What is the use of all the
efforts for civic betterment, of all the
exertions to root out corruption and pun
ish venality hi public office, of such a
nation-wide organization to bunt graft
as Mr. Sprocket, of San Francisco, pro
poses, if the host of foreign born are to
receive ail object lesson in graft right
on the threshold of citizenship?
Tbe report from Princeton Univer
sity Hint theAVyrnan bequest 'had healed
the breach caused by the loss of all en
dowment for the proposed* graduate
school happily appears to be confirmed
l»y the intelligence that the offer of Mr.
William C. Procter and the other cou
tributors to the million-dollar fund has
been renewed and accepted. President
Wilson in accepting the gift congratu
lates the board of trustees upon ■ "com
"btnation of circumstances which give?
"so bright a promise of a successful and
"harmonious development of the univer
sity along lines which may command
"our common enthusiasm." These words
indicate that the acute difference of
opinion which existed ■ short time ago
has disappeared, either because one side
or other to the controversy, if not both
sides, has had Its point of view changed
by the enlarged outlook which the Wy
man bequest made possible.
Every friend .if Princeton hopes th.it
an "harmonious development" will result.
It would have been most unfortunate
for the university if when such great
opportunities were before it, with its re
sources probably more than doubled, the
division of counsels had persisted. If
lack of harmony hud. resulted in the
retirement of one element or the othvr
from active participation in its affaire
the wound would have been long in
healing. This would have been pecul
iarly true because the controversy In
the popular mind had been made to take
on the appearance of one. between "d
mocracy" and "aristocracy. .in educa
tion. The prestige of th<- university
might have been seriously affected had
any lasting false impression been left
upon the public mind.
The reas*enjbliug of the British Par
liament is marked by a far more tem
perate and conciliatory spirit than that
which prevailed ar the close of the pre
ceding session. The sobering and sad
deuing effect of the death of King Ed
ward naturally dWncttned right minded
men to aggravate the bereavement of
his successor by political animosities,
and the truce thus imposed on con
tending parties has in the lapse of time
hntaeed a more reasonable attitude on
each side and a greater readiness to
effect an agreement in which the inter;
ests of the nation as a whole would be
held superior to the advantage of either
party. The intimation that the King
is interesting himself in the work of con
ciliation is not incredible. He -would
not meddle in partisan politics, but
within the limits of constitutional pro
priety be may well exert his influence
to quiet the violent paantena which dis
figured and disturbed the public life of
England in the last mouths of his
fathers reign.
It may be assumed that there will be
a transaction of some routine public
business almost without controversy,
such as the passing of the new civil list
jind a supply bill. The regency bill and
the proposal tor the modification of the
King's coronation oath will give rise to
controversy, but not to such as that of
the last session over the budget and the
Peers. To what extent such a course
will confirm the spirit of conciliation
which now prevails will be known a
few months hence, at latest, when the
Irrepressible question of "mending or
ending" the House of Lords again conies
up for action.' For of course it will
come up. It must, since both houses
and both, or all three, parties are fully
committed to ii. Lord Itosebery has
already Indicated bis determination to
proceed wife consideration of his plan
for reorganizing the upper house, and
Mi. As.|uilh will unquestionably resume
consideration at his anti-veto scheme.
The uncertain factor in the problem Is
0 ■■ attitude of the Liberal party toward
its Irish allies. Many Liberals are in
clined toward conciliation and compro
mise, perhaps on a baMs closely re
sembling Lord nosebefy's plan; but Mr.
Redmond and bis followers are Irm-«m
cnable. They plainly declared in the
Irst cession that tbe abolition of the
veto power of the Lords was the su
pri'iue present iii) of their efforts, and
that insistence in tout policy was the
sine gun yon of their continued nap*
port of the Liberal puny and min
istry. The filiation in, tbefcfore,

ihe Irish and in the ho>>e of winniug
such Unionist toleration, if not actual
aid. as will avert the necessity of re
signinc office. Left to themselves, with
the Irish eliminated, it is conceivable
that the Liberals nnd T'nionists would

on which the constitutional issue which
no, v overshadows the nation could be

The Meade-Philllpp primary bill met
the fate which even its supporters roust
always have known it would meet. It
was. prepared by a committee which
went forth with its mind made up
against direct primaries to find evidence
to sustain its already formed convic
tions. And it was passed in the Seuate
under the leadership of Grady. Tlie Re
publican Senators who voted for it were
ashamed cf their work the next day.
The bill had l>oth bad and good features.
Its bad feature? commended it to its
supporters. Its good features were to
tally inadequate to commend it to any
one else. As ■ measure of primaiy re
form it was about as useful in the pres
ent situation as a ten-quart pail of water
would be to extinguish a conflagration
in a skyscraper. Tt would have cured
sonic of the defects in the present pri
mary and nomination system (if the con
vention is to be retained), but it would
have created new defects of its own by
providing a ballot which tightened the
machine's grip upon nomination ma
And withal. Its friends gave it a char
acter of dishonesty nnd pretence by p°r
«isiing in calling it a direct nominations
bill! Such virtue they felt to be in the
name that even the bill which was pre
pared by a committee avowedly hostile
to the direct system and which was
passed by a coalition between William
Barnes, jr.. and Tammany Hall nas
labelled the uMeade-PhQUpßu Meade-PhQUpB direct
nominations hill.' 1 The circumstances
of its passage were discreditable and its
purpose was deceitful. h richly do
served a veto.
IThatever the inspiration of the suit
brought against Commander Peary in
Berlin may have been, the attorney
whom be b.i.s employed to represent him
when the ease comes on for trial will
be able to cli< ¥ it some interesting facts.
Ir h;i* been : npposed thai Mr. Franeke
was merely an employe of Dr. Cook and
th*» custodian of ihe Brooklyn traveller's
stores and trophies at Etah. [n that
case, of coarse, Vr. Cook would be the
man entitled to ask for satisfaction. Mr.
Franeke now alleges that he was a part
owner of the walrus ivory and furs re
garding which .•: dispute hn< arisen, but,
of course, he must Bret of all prove that
About some other matters there is less
uncertainty. Dr. Cook, after crossing to
the west coast of Ellesmerc Land, from
which he afterward reported that he
had pushed northward to the pole, did
not return to Etah as soon as. was
expected. Meantime Mr. Francko grew
anxious about hi- employer's fate and
his own. There were no signs of Dr. Cook,
and no provision had been made for Mr.
I'rancke's transportation. Eventually the
Brooklyn explorer caught a Danish
steamer in a port of Greenland, and
reached home by way of Europe. Mr.
Francke was brought back by one of
Commander Peary's supply heat-, the
Erik. For that service, us well as for
medical help given while Mr. Francke
was sick, ho was under obligation.- to
the man whom he now sues. The pre
cise method adopted for paying the debt
M still In doubt. It was rumored last
year that, partly because he believed that
Dr. Cook was dead and portly from
gratitude to the man who bad saved his
life. Mr. Francke Lad presented Com
mander Peary with the trophies of the
chase which were left at Etali. Possibly
lie had no authority to make such a gift.
It would be interesting to know what hi*
former employer would say on the sub
ject. /
However, if the case is ever tried Mr.
Francke will have to submit to a highly
interesting cross-examination. ,
It is encouraging to observe that an
important and potentially effective step
toward educational and professional re
form has been taken by the Carnegie
Foundation in a direction which we have
frequently urged as eminently desirable
for the welfare of the members of the
professions concerned and of the public
whose interests they serve. The fact ap
pears In the report on medical education
in the United States which the founda
tion has just Issued and which declares
I that in the last twenty-five years there
has been In this country an enormous
overproduction of ill trained physicians.
The quantity of the profession has been
increased at the expense of its quality.
The result obviously must be mischievous
to all concerned. It is bad for the ill
trained physicians themselves, since it
leads them into work for which they are
not fitted and in which they cannot suc
ceed; it is bad for the worthy members
of the profession, since it subjects them
to unworthy competition; and it is bad
for the public, since it subjects it to the
ministration of incompetent servants.
The criticism holds good in respect to
the legal as well as the medical profes
sion. Many schools of medicine and law
include a large number of students who
betray their radical unfitness in almost
every act and word, and the professions
are correspondingly afflicted with in
competent or unscrupulous practitioners.
Perhaps emphasis should be laid upon
this latter feature of the case. It is un
happily true that many young men enter
the professions without adequate appre
ciation, if not with a deliberate, disre
gard, of the ethical obligations which
should control them. Moreover, those
who are actuated by higher motives too
often encounter such competition that
they are tempted to resort to illegiti
mate, or at least unethical, courses.
From these causes spring most of the
cases i if medical and legal malpractice.
The report of the Carnegie Foundation
lays the blame for this discreditable
state of affairs primarily upon the pro*
prietary schools which are commercially
managed, nnd ire have no doubt that
much of It properly belongs there. In
some cases, however, the professional
schools connected with colleger) and uni
versities are by no means blameless,
rivalry and the desire for bigness leading
them to accept unfit candidates, to put
their entrance requirements too low and
to make graduation too May. But back
of M 8'! the responsibility seems to rest
'il*o. U» 9fc*Si» authorities, who,- at Itatt
in most of the states, prescribe the terms
of licensing and practising the profes
We speak of this report of tbe' Car
negie Foundation as an encouraging step,
because that institution lias grouty in
fluence irf educational affairs. We* are
not sure, as we have said, that its bene
fits in systematizing and standardizing
higher education and in calling atten
tion to lapses and abuses and promoting
their correction are not actually greater
than those of its pecuniary bounty,
though of course it Is only because of
the latter that it is able to do the for
mer. If it shall succeed in bringing pro
fessional education up to a satisfactory
standard of quality, either with or with
out, but preferably with, some prudent
diminution of quantity. it will perform a
service of Inestimable value to the pro
fessions and to the public.
Th? pardoning of one or two "prison
poets" is doubtless commendable, to
judge from what we have heard of them;
but It would be a sad day for literature
and for justice if the precedent were to
be set of pardoning ever>; rogue who
"dropped into poetry."
Th« Republican voters in South Da

the Progressives and the Stalwarts.
The expectation that General Botha
might appoint to his cabinet some repre

in the giving of a portfolio to Mr. Moor.

was attending a child whose mother Ml
devoted to the game and who did not allow
the child's illness to interfere with her
bridge engagements. One evening, when
the physician made his usual call at the
cottage which the woman was occupying
for the season, he found the patient much
worse and the mother absent, playing
bridge as usual. He left a note with the
nurse, in which ho said: "Called this
morning, mother at bridge; called at 3,
mother at bridge; called at S, mother at
bridge. Patient would be no worse and
the world better if mother were in jail."
The note became public in the little town,

was broken.

scheme is simply that the big printing

earlier in the afternoon, giving employes a

where ho got the name, ho naid: 'My name
is Abraham Linker. When I began to

the people my name, they called mi Abe

A Suggestion to Facilitate Its Issue in
Time of Panic.
To t.ie Tklitor of The Tribune. .
Sir: Congress prepares not only for war,
but also for parries. Nearly a million has
been appropriated and expended Flnee the
crisis cf IPO7 to present the recurrence of a
financial panic or mitigate the severity of
the next one.
Under the Yreeland-Aldrich emergency
currency act of May Zv. 1!W8. some $500,000.
000 of banknotes have been printed to meet
j>ii emerg-enry. Thtti store of currency Is
like Inexhaustible ammunition for use upon
the outbreak of hostilities. But Congress
provides with exceaofve particularity Just
how the currency must be issued in an
emergency and practically prescribes the
way in which th»> battle must be fought.
To obtain emergency currency under the
Vreeland-Aldrich act. national banks are
required to form national currency asso
ciations of not Ics than ten banks each,
having an aggregate capital and surplus of
not less than $5,000,000. In 190S, when tlie
members of the New York Clearing House
desired and prepared to form a national
currency association they found some pro
visions of the law so incompatible with
business principles that they changed their
mind and, like nearly all other bank?, de
clined to form a. national currency associa
tion. Only one such association has been
formed in thp United States, namely, at
Recently I submitted to some members
of Congress in Washington an unobjection
able amendment that would make the
emergency currency act a most useful and,
effective measure. For example, during
ond after the panic of 1307 th« banks of
New York City were charged with refusal
to furnish currency for the needs of in
terior banks. The proposed amendment
■n 6uM authorize the Secretary of the Treas
ury, at his discretion, when requested by
the Clearing house association of a central
reserve city, to issue emergency currency
through the clearing house association to
any national bank in the United States
designated. , Thus, banks in the central re
serve cities. New York. Chicago and St.
Louis. would bo enabled to furnish cur
rency for probably any needs of interior
The heavy, almost prohibitive, tax on
emergency currency under the Yr«eland-
Aldrtch act would restrict applications for
its issue to actual n*eds. Few interior
banks would want to take it out as long as
any New York, Chicago or St. Louis corre
spondent furnished currency. But the law
should permit every national bank in the
United States to arrange, by mutual con
sent, with the clearing house association
of a central reserve city for the issue or
emergency currency through that clearing
house association, acting as a national cur
rency association.
Finally, the Secretary of the Treasury
should have discretionary power to regu
late the tax so as to remove its prohibitive
effect upon if-ti>i»«- when they are greatly
l^eded. JAMES C. HAL.L.OCX.

■Sir: To me the frontispi^e of one part
of th* ?ssue- of The Tribune of Sunday,
I June 5, respecting: "Ten Progressive Kpochs
in the History of the Hudson River." lias
a peculiar interest. It Is not "The Bird-
Man," represented as flying high over the
Hudson River, but more especially the ad
jacent solid shores, where the first railroad
lines along its eastern side, ISM. and the
first railroad along its western aide, ISBI,
are pictured.
When the Hudson Ki\t Railroad
completed from Albany a? fn'r south as
Hudson tlie members of the btate legis
lature act-epted an invitation to ride the
n'r^t train to Hudson and return. At thl^
time my father. Mari'.is Scboonmaker, rep
resented this district in the Senate. My
mother happening to br with my father in
Albany, I. then an infant, accompanied ray
parents on this historic trip. As T have
never beard of another so young in this
connection, possibly I may be the only one
living who was thoa fortunate.
Referring to the tlrst railroad along the
western hide, 1 was v passesuSW on the
lirst train from Kir.gstou to New York,
going as far as Newburg, and purchasing
the first ticket sold. I was also <>n th?
northbound train, and still have in my
pos^essicn. as well, the Brst tir-krt from
Kingston to Albany.
