PERSONAL REGISTRATION UP
Governor-elect l>lx in statements to the

favor of extending to tho rural districts
the personal registration law which now
applies to the . ities of the state. This

the custom of Democratic orators to eali
attention to the monstrous unfairness of
h law which puts difficulties in tbe, way
of voters in Democratic parts of the
state, while leaving it easy to vote in
Republican territory. Of course this is
all nonsense. Personal registration is a
1 ritling burden in the city,; where the
voter passes near the polling place on his
wav to business in the morning or back

RED CROSS EXpOWMEXf;
It was a pleasure not long ago to an-

can Red Cross, to th<> end that that
highly useful .organization should at all
limes have in hand sufficient funds lo

—such as. Indeed. most of the calls
upon its benevolence are — without wail
ing for contributions from the public.
whi<h are always sure to come but which
require time just at the very moment
when even the least delay is deplorable!
It is gratifying bow to report, as we do
in another colum >, substantial progress
toward the realization of that aim.

the corresponding organization in Japan
lias permanent resources of more than
$5.<K)6.000. that in Prussia of nearly
$5,000,000. and that in Frauce of nearly
$4,300,000. If those countries have had
the value of IU-d Cross work demon

seen it in the more frequent needs of
times of peace. Epidemic, tire, flood.

phes all create urgent demands for the
operation of this beneficent and efficient
agency. It was only the ot'ner day that
we recorded the death of the founder "f
the K<hl Cross system. No nobler me

could be devised than the prompt cotn

77//. PE\ 7 81O\ OUTLOOK.
A sli;ihT decrease in expenditures for
pensions is shown in the report just is
sued by the Commissioner <>f Pensions
for the fiscal year 1909-10. The coun
try's pension outlay reached its maxi
mum in 1908-'O9, when the total paid to
beneficiaries rose t<> $161,973,000. Be
tween 1S!t:;-'!>4 and 1906-*O7 the annual
expenditure averaged about $139,000,000,
but with the passage of the law of
February- 6. IW". Increasing allowances
for disability after sixty-two years, the
total jumped to (153.000.000 in 1907-* OB
and to $161,973,600 the year following.
The natural decline in payments due to
the shortening of the pension roll and
the eradual exhaustion of the supply of
possible claimant'- was arrested by that
legislation, and pension expenditure was
carried to what the country now justly
regards as a full discharge of its cat
From that limit there must be from
now on a steady recession. The expen
diture declined $2,000,000 last year, and
for 1910-*ll Congress has appropriated
(5.000.000 less than for 1009-*lO. It is
evident that there must be a rapid
shrinkage In the roll in the next five
years. The number of pensioners stood
at between !t!«u>iif» and 1.000.000 for
eight years successively — from 1S;»7-'!>S
lo 1f)«»4-*0ri— because losses by death were
made up through the granting of now
applications. I'.ut since 1904-' OS the roll
has diminished from 908,441 to 921.683.
The net loss last year was °.."i.lll, and
i« will probably average that number
for some year* to come if Congress re
frains fr.'in further pension legislation.
It must be remembered that Congress
has not only constantly enlarged the
pensionable class but has largely In
creased the average value of pensions.
Thai average has risen from .<i.".vis in
L9Oft-'O6 to $171 in 1909-'l6. Another
disturbing influence has been private
pension legislation, which favor* iixii
viduals by 'exempting them from the
operation of the general pension laws.
that abuse hat liecome acute, for while
ten years ag*i the average, of private
bills passed was less than one thousand

HARVARD'S NEW FOOTBALL
We wonder what play the football
coaches at Yale have devised or can ac

Says Mr. Percy Ilaughton. the aoie
Harvard coach, to the Harvard cheering
section : "Let ySur minds so concentrate
"on winning tliat the Harvard players on ;
"the field will actually feel the vibration^
"of your thoughts." What will a Mmnc
sota wing shift avail against all tn«3
thought vibrations? Yale may tremble.
There is Brown, which defeated iale
withont the Minnesota puzzler, it is true
by what is a huge score against Tale.
Brown went down before those Harvard
thought vibrations. And Dartmouth, too
-which did no, play Yale, so that com
parative scores will not guide us- l•art
mouth, usually a formidable antagonist
of Harvard, was crumpled by those vi
brations. They must have been work
ing also when Mr. Han-hron's charges
went down to West Point, earlier in the
peason— by absent treatment, probably,
for the soldiers, also victors over Yale,
fell before Harvard.
If Harvard wins next Saturday
thought vibrations will be Harvard's
mosi notable contribution to football
strategy since Mr. Deland used to invent
his bone breaking plays for that institu
tion In the earlier day?. A most im
portant contribution ii is. too-, for it will
remove from football a long standing
reproach-namely, that it is played only
by a few picked gladiators. Now all the
students can get in the inc. If one is
not a fullback nor a halfback, or lacks
the 1-eef t.. stand in the line, he can sit
in the stand and make his thoughts
Even the faculty fills a useful purpose
in the scheme of things. The pro
fessors are the trainers and bottle
holders for the thoughts tha< vibrate, or
for the intellects in which the thoughts
vibrate. Now that some use has been

the adoption of uniform standards in

one questions the desirability of such a

convenience if connecting lines could ■ x

not unlikely that electricity would be

read two comments upon it that have late

Denver Juvenile Court, ;uxl the other by
the chief justice of Idaho.
in ■The Woman's Journal" of October R,
ISO. Judge Lindsey wrote: "Tlie state

The chief justice of Idaho wrote in "The
Woman's Journal" of November 12. 1910:
"It seems very strange thai a magazine
with the standing of "The Atlantic Month

KEEP AT IT IS HIS MOTTO.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: Does not Mr. Woodruff" a an-1 Mr.
Barnes* comment upon the election seem a
bit like "crowing"? That the Democratic
candidate received a many Kepub
liran votes is a fact beyond doubt; that
these voters are what we term "sore
heads" is also an indisputable fact.
Perhaps ere .me or two more elections
they will understand why Colonel Itoose
velt worked so hard to have his party win.
One ti.ir.cr is certain, the men who sup
ported Mr. Stimson, from tlie most active
worker to the man who simply gave his
vote to the party, are all intelligent men
nun ..if integrity. We are well rid of the
"grafter" and the "habitual kicker."
It is hard to become reconciled to the
fad that when we wore making our party
.-trong with j<o<>d. upright men we ,-ould
not continue and convince those who were
so ready to nnd fault that our ambition
was to give to the people sound and clean
government That would have been a
triumph for Colonel Roosevelt However.
there are many things overshadowed hi
this world. SO let us keep on fighting, bear
ing in mind that a defeat now and then

Turin, Italy. Nov. I*.— The marriage or
Trin^ Victor Napoleon, cousin of Kins:
Victor Emmanuel and Prefeadet to the
thron«» of France, and Prinrpss Clementine,
danKhtcT of the lat« King Leopold of Bel
gium, was celebrated to-day at Moncalieri,

a few mile? from hero. The ceremony took
place in the royal castM erected ba tae
fifteenth century, to which PrtaccM Clo
tild*. si?ter of King Humbert and mother
of Prince Victor Napoleon, retired after the
overthrow of the French Empire.
Puhllc rcjolciag marked t!ie oecaaiom. The
streets wen? decorated profusely, hands
played in the squares and flag* waved from
the castle, the municipal huildin^s and
many private houses. All the member* of
Om Savoy and Bonaparte families ' were
present, including Prince. r>mJs Napoleon,
the younger brother of the Pretender, who
for some time had not been on good terms
with the bridegroom, but who agreed to
a. reconciliation on this occasion chiefly
through the efforts of his motber. He acted
as a witness for hJ^ brother, the other wit

the courtship of Prince Victor Napoleon
and Princess Clementine Js retold in the

pers recite how the late King Leopold
steadfastly refused to permit the marriage
of his favorite daughter to the pretender
to the throne of a friendly power. Since
the accession of King Albert it .ias be*>n
known that the royal objection* had been
removed. This was due largely to the.
tactful attitude of the prince himself, who
always refrained from attending oflclal
f^tes and ceremonies at Brussels and from
in any way embarrassing the relations of
Belgium and Fraace;
