A blunder scorns to have been made io
the construction of the dam at Austin.
Tenn., the bursting of which has just
caused such terrible loss of life. As *<>on
as tlic reservoir behind It was tilled
with water after its completion two
yuan ate crecka formed in it and water
made its way through the earth under
It. Since then Komethins appears to
have been done to Increase its strength,
for the president of the company usin~
the water etored behind it for power pur
poses was quoted In yesterday's Tribune
as saving that it had "only recently been,
reinforced with :inother cement dam."
Apparently the reinforcement did not
cure the orif-inal defects, whether they
were caused by construction in freezing
weather, neglect to ascertain the ability
of the strata beneath the foundations of
the dam to retain water or failure tu al?
low the concrete to become so pet before
ufe as to attain it; maximum strength ;
to all of which causes the weakness of
the original dam was ascribed by its de?
signer, according to an article in "Eugi
Deerinfl News," published shortly after
trouble was tirst experienced.
Whether or not the owners of the dam
took proper measures to make its condi?
tion safe after the warnings received
when it was first put Into use is a ques?
tion for otlieial investigation. If after
plain indications tint the dam was faulty
the utmost was not done to reinforce it
the responsibility of those who took
gg with the lives of the people ?lv
_? glow this Imprisoned mass of water
?v terrible. In the absence, however, of
Information us t<> what was actually done
to repair the original deflects, and with?
out expert opinion as to the propriety of
attempting to natch up g dam showing
such defects, It is impossible to reach n
lion as to responsibility for the
ter. The public should withhold it.s
judgment, but in view of the danger gig
Whtcb the dam gave when it was
first aged the burden of proof is upon
its owners and their aaiadnasani to show
thai what the] did had the full approval
of engineering seience.

AJttOng the bills which the Legislature
found time to paag In the confusion of
the present gtajastai was the bin provid?
ing for addltloaal Justices of the Su
? ? Court to this district. Governor,
Dix vetoed a similar bill which was sent
\ to him Ik lore the recess and should not
1 fail to veto this one. Additional justices
' aro not needed In this district, and the
object of the bid is not to relieve an
overworked court, but to create patron
' aire for Tammany.
The aim Of legislation should not be
m multiply judicial offices, but to expe?
dito the processes of Justice. A mistaken
notion has been featered IB some quar?
ters that many Judges and prompt jus?
tice are almost gj noiiyiuous terms. They
arc not We have many Judges and In?
tolerablj glow justice In this country.
England has few Judgea and prompt jus?
tice. Unnccgflgary Judgea breed leisurely
. lack of Industry and other prae
"n the bench that cumber op the
calendar.
if the Legislature h so certain that
the work of this department is falling
behind that it must needs pana over
, a biil rejected by Gorernor Dix,
let it address itself to simplifying judi?
cial procedure, eliminating technicalities
? and reducing the number of appeals?
With the buall ? M of the courts put 00 ?
ble basis we should need not more
b it fewer Judges.
IB0?T LABELS.
a other day mention was mide
i in The Tribune of a flourlahlng home In?
dustry, that of the manufacture of imi?
tations ' l famous foreign label?, and
"original packages" for the deception of
the long*SUffering ultimate consumer and
the benefit of dishonest dealera We bare
warned time and again againal do
? labels that apparently guarantee
the gjenuinenegg of the anides they
adorn, but in reality do nothing of the
kind, gg a careful reading of ti e mlcro
Bcoplc type between the flaunting capitals
Will reveal. Europe shares With OS this
burden of deception, but whereas in this

waged againal deceptively and falsely

struggle sppears to be chiefly for the
purttj of beveragea

silk were much used ns n substitute for

And now Germany has g liquid label
quarrel of its own. It concerns no less
famous a brand than the gunny, golden
"J.iebfianmileli." The name has been
given indiscriminately to ninny wines
prow n in the neighborhood of Worms,
wbere la situated the little vineyard, the
property of the Church of our L?dy of
\\'orm>, which alone has a right to it.

s- rved to bring to light the fact that the
difference between "Llebfraumllch" and
"Liebfrauenmilch" on the label is in this
rnae the difference between the true ami

informed of the dlrtinctlon and hare

PRINCELY TRAVELS.
Late last summer tue heir to the Turk?
ish tbn. visited Rome, and was re?
ceived with ail the pomp ami circum?
stance dm- t.? his exalted station, it has
that the official visit was
in pari a mission for the purpose of as*
curtaining the Italian government'g in
tentjoiis in regard to Tripoli. However
may be, ? ngguf tggeddin Effendl

era, ami reached Berlin.
There liis reception was even more
brilliant and hearty, in fact, Biriper??r

tighter. The Padlshii bestowed decora?
tions on Ilprr von Klderlen-Waohter,
Field Marshal von Molt ko. Admiral von
Tlrpltz and other high ditrnitnrles "f
state, and tbe Turkish press rejoiced ox
ceedingly. I?-? oolumnamade many grace?
ful and aniteful references to the historie
relations between tbe two countries, first
establiahed by Frederick the tirent, who
soiieht to loasen tha strain of Ihe Seven
Years' War by B Turkish di\erslon. Ami
there were prophetic-; that this porfeci
understand?m: would guarantee the peace
of Europe and would help tbe new Tur?
key to find herself. Th" Crown Prince
returned to ?'"tLStantlnople. What fol?
lowed is already B part of history, what?
ever Its ultimate consequences.
What does this future Commander of
the Faithful think BB he looks hack upon
bis visits to the rulers of the giaours?
To he mire, bo ran bo no novice in "la
hmit" politiqw." B particularly crafty
brand of which was so successfully prac?
tised by his father's predecessor for
many years; but, nevertheless, he must
sitare intensely the world's opinion that
his country has received an exceptional?
ly "raw deal, if that term be permissi?
ble In a discussion of matters of hlc'i
diplomacy. Perhaps he has reached the
conclusion that Abdul Hamid II wns a
bungler, and taken to the study of Mach
iavelli Instead. Pooh he, perchance,
remember another royal visit to Berlin,
that made in 1880 by Alfonso XII of
Spain, who, laden with honors on his
departure for home, was stripped by his
host of the Caroline Islands literally he
fore he had time to react bis palace In
Madrid? Finally, wa wonder when that
half-promised return visit of tbe German
Crown Prince fo Constantinople will take
place. Still, foreltrn travel enlarges the
mind, especially of royal personages.
;'////: PSYCHOLOGY OF rABBIOX.
Pads lias Just mobbed B hoopskirt, or.
j rather, the wearer of one, font out, m>
i doubt, by some outvrlcr in an attempt
to revivo once more a vanished fashion.
Last year tbe City of Light mobbed it*
"Pposlfo, the jupe-cuU>ttft, with even
more enthusiasm. Not becauee Paris
objecta lo new faahlona, even extreme
oii.'S OB principio. Not In the least. It
merely loves i<> mob somebody or some?
thing, good naturedly or the reverse, and
welcomes any excuse to lnduliro in its
favorite pastime.
What is the Beeret of the changes of
fashion? Is it merely a trick to keep
certain branches of business profitably
going?in this particular instance an at?
tempt to recoup the losses on uns. M
materials caused by tbe narrowness of
last season's skirts? Or must we look
for a deeper cause beneath theso con?
stant mutations, this incessant search
for something new? Certain It is that
woman appaara never to bo satisfied for
long with her own appearance. Thlg in?
stinct, if puoh it ran be called, probably
found its first outlet thousands of years
ago, when she util! dressed iu skins, in
the invention of new ways of "doing"
ber hair, it may even he that bead
bunting, scalping and other pleaaant dl?
rerslona with an enemy originated in
this her first fashion, her primitiva need
Of more hair wherewith fo "do" her own.
She has always gought to chance her
physkaJ appearance, by adding to it,
by compressing or distorting It. within
living memory she has worn crinolines,
Improvers, boloyetwat, tbe bat?
ter to sweep up the dust of the street
with her trailing skirt-. She has seem?
ingly adopted for good the rainy day
outdoor garment '"it now. it appaara,
she Is to be tempted DO return to tbe
crinoline, which, in one form oreimther,
has been a favorite fashion of hers since
the farthingale of the sixteenth century.
Why, noue can toll.
It is often Bald that women do not
for men, but for each other, and
also that men rarely pay detailed atten?
tion to what women wear. Thlg may be
BO, yet It is certain that the Itirls mob
which diverted itself with that lonely
kirt the other day and with the
fape-cttloffe last year was componed
exclusively of men It is no laag cer?
tain that In our own country the most
strenuous opponents of the latter fashion
were of tbe sterner <.<-,T Whatever his
tolerance ?>f the modish extravagances
>.f other women, the avenga man |g al?
moat puritanically conservative where
the dress of his own womankind Ig > .n
cerned. And It may well be that in this
way he exerts upon feminine faahlona B
far greater Influen?a than is generally
understood. The revival of the stately
crinoline would n"t offend that conser?
vatism of bis?-quite the contrary?but
it would offend bji genee of the rights
Of others in crowded public places And
no doubt the modern woman, at least In
this country, v. ill take the same common
sense view of one of the oldest traditions
of feminine wear.

The, wide difference between rates In
Europe and those quoted here tends to
encourage. t;ilk of heavy flOM exports
from Now York, and although saohangs
ratee in the local market are still under
the level at which shipments could be
profitably made, Paris already has taken
gl^fOObOOO of the metal. The foreign
financial situation Is unsettled, while
here we have at present the most Stable
marlcet In the world. (?old which we
may send abroad will represent loans
rather than the payment of debts. Our
export trade is steadily Increasing, and
only enormous liquidation by Europe of
American securities can wipe out the
financial balance In our favor. With all
the disturbance In Europe and the re?
cent panicky aelllng of stocka by our
own people there has been no disposition
on the part of foreigner! to part with
their American securities. If the Ital?
ian-Turkish war should Involve other
nations and If the apparent settlement
of the Moroccan situation should prove
only a myth, financial needs doubtless
would force liquidation of foreign held
American securities, hut these "Ifs" are
not likely to beoome full fledged de?
velopments.

and the outlook for a largo final harvest

predicting ? nine cent basis for the
Staple. Export demand for wheat Is
lighter than that recently reported,
owing to the higher prices prevailing,
although the sharp advance In quota?
tions following tho defeat of reciprocity
In Canada has not been fully maintained.
.Shipments of corn from this country
last week wero much heavier than in
the week before and In the same week

tleaJly made without having suffered
from damage by frost. Provisions as a
rule are tending at the moment toward
lower levels, the movement being helped
by tho weakness in the market for hogs,
while the climax apparently has been
reached In the advance of sugar prices.
The murk't for Steel is unsettled SO far
as prices are concerned, but consumption
Is not on a dlsooiirsginfl basis. As a

I am the Rushing Waters
I care naught for kith or kin:
For the youthful or the aped,
For virtu? or for fin.
I go my way a-flylng
In a surly, Ugly mood,
And the maimed, the dead, the dying
Help to form rr.y pjrewsome brood.
I am the Rushing Waters?
I sweep every thing before;
I take the poor man's shanty,
I flow through the rich man's door.
The stately church a-standlng
For many a century.
The crumbling river landing,
Are both ?like to me.
I am the Hushing Waters?
Cro?s not my ruthless path;
For I show but little mercy,
I am greedy In my wrath.
Take heed, th?n. when you hear me,
And make urgent haste to flee,
For but few things do not fear me
That have come In touch with me!

I am a regular Republican, and for years
I have, thought both parties wet,, too slow
in initiating th? reforma demandad by the
Progrei Ivaa Governor Wilson, in a blind
and unpractical way, has suceaaded in hav?
ing gassed a good deal of good l?gislation,
particularly In rasped t<. purification of
politics. This ?raj Indeed badly needed.
The new Geran act is good, but needs sim?
plification. This can all be done In good
time.
Wilson is entirely unpractical but we
think he means oil right. He makes ail
sorts of blunders and would make s vary

would take tOO many | '?rate him.

A BRAVE SCHOOLBOY.
.To the Editor of Th" Tribune.
Sir: One Sunday afternoon In September,
190$, a Brooklyn schoolboy named Alvin C.
Simmons saved two young men from
drowning at Bockaway Heaoh. Although
weak from Illness, lie swam out to them
In turn through a choppy sea and a dan?
gerous undertow. Bystanders urged him
not to go after th? ascond man, but young
Hlmmons broke away from all restraint,
and, after a asSBasSvtS battle With tha
waves, brought the unfortunate swimmer
to sh'ire. where b? waa resuscitated.
I made a complete report to the i'.irnegle)
Bars Fund Conunlaaton, and laat week,
after S lapse of '\\n years, the manager
Informed me that Simmons s act does not
under tha scope, of tbe commission.
I had hoped that prompt acknowledgment
and reward would be given, for I, as a
school principal, knew that I could hold
Up the de.il With fine effect before, til?
boys who come under my care. Now I
appeal for assistance is securing n
tlon for this bravo deed. The boy is
ll us, and has to earn his own living.
acts of valor are numerous In this great
city, but WO read more oft. nj of hoodlums
of heroes among boyi nnd young men.
Eor that reason I trust that this effort may
bo suitably recognised H,1<* emulated.

Housewives Lead in Disorderly
Demands for Cheap Food.
Parte, S.'i'temher IB.
Tim food revolution that Is raging
?rlth violence |n the Industrial and min?
ing departments of Northern France la
a recent development of the great eco?
nomic gtruggte manifested g year ago
In the general railroad strike, and, last
.spring, by the civil war In the wlno
produelng regions of champagne and
Bar-sur-Auhe. Professional political
agitators from Paris, under the lead of
the General Labor Federation, at the
lirst sign of disorder hasten to the
storm centres, foment excitement by
making stump speeches, by frantic ap?
peals to the latent instincts of the pro?
letariat for loot and plunder, and unfold,
with glib oratory, claptrap fallacy and
clever sophistry the theory that the
only salvation for society Is tho estab?
lishment of the Commune of 1S71, with
"death to tho bourgeois." The village
wine Bhops are full of revellers singing
the revolutionary' "Carmagnole" and the
anarchist "Internationale." while curb?
stone "anan ihlsts" and adventurers
from Paris and the large towns preach
"general strike," ".sabotage" and whole?
sale destruction of property.
French housewives are proverbially
frhrewd and thrifty, and usually evince
an uncommon share of hard, pre?
common sense. In the present emer?
gency, i.owever, they seem to have l"st
their heads I ompfa telv. At Lille,
Maubeu^o, Douay and Other northern
towns they head the rioters, do most
Of the destruction and are Invariably in
the thick of the fighting. In fact, these
northern housewives In their blind fury
recall tho exploita Of the women of tho
"Halles" during the stormy days of
1789 Tho k-ral garrisons are lnsuffl
< lent to deal with the outbreak1, and reci?
?e nts of infant!-, and i avalry bave been
dispatched to the north from Normandy
nnd from Paria. Band:! of Infurta! '
housewives, with banners nnd re4 flags,
call at farmhouses and chateaus and
compel all tho women of tie various
households to march with them and
"demonstrate" for cheap food.
At Bruay, near Valenciennes, a squad
of housewives called at ? o'clock In
the morning at a house where a party
of PajrUrtennea had arrived the previous
evening. When refused admittance the.
door ?rag battered down, and the "belli s
dames" from Paris were forced to put
on their clothes In haste, and, half dead
with fright, were dragged along In the
procession. Three housewives, after
throwing bricks at the soldiers and
badly wounding a corporal, were taken
prisoners and locked up in Jail. Where?
upon the rioters demanded their imme?
diate release. The authorities refused.
A few hours later the General Labor
Federation declared "a general strike
In the whole region urd.ll the women
should be set free." similar Instances
occurred elsewhere. In this way the
movement soon developed Into open
'.'.arfare against the government, Just as
in the case of th* French railroad strike
? ictober.
The Chilians Cabinet is investigating
the causes of the revolution and trying
hard to devise a means for lowering the
prices of food. The problem Is difficult
and complicated, in the case of meat
alone explauationa are contradictory.
The ?rholeaale but, hers, the retail butch?
eis, the cattle commission merchants, the
brokers of the Paris central markets and
the dolegates of the "League of Consum?
ers" each tell different and conflicting
stories. The syndicate of pork butchers
Of Douay sent a telegram to the Minister
of Agriculture announcing that they had
"declared a strike until foreign pork
ihould bo allowed to enter France f re a
of duty."
Thn government, however, seems de?
termined rot to amend the tariff on food,
and is trying to alleviate matten by ac?
cording lower freight >-ates on f.I
doing away with some of the meat
broken nnd middlemen who have com?
missions on the galea of meat, poultry,
milk and vegetables. The fury of tho
housewives of Flanders and Picardy is
eepeclally violent toward the "ehevll
larda" ?r wholesale butchers. On? Of
the most important "chevlUard
Lille, In an interview with a "Temps"
reporter, said:
"It is rot our fault. Sheep have al?
most disappeared In Northern 1':
We are obliged to pay 2S cents a j
beep on the hoof, wo gell the
slaughtered sheep at 21 cents a pound,
exclusive of the skin, tripe nnd kid
and from this must be deducted one cent
for local octroi duty. You see from this
that our profit is very small. Why doe.:
not the government allow us to Import
live sheep from America? The only
mutton that we flet from abroad must,
according to the preaent law, be cut into
quarters, and in this condition it be?
comes unsalable forty-eight hours after
di livery. We can obtain an almost un?
limited amount of ibeep from Argentina,
but the law prohibiting the importation
? sh,. p prevents us from doing go
it is objected that American aheep if in?
troduced alive m France would deterl
the br.I. The remedy for tin,
would be to allow live sheep to i?
brought from America, and upon arrival
at a French port be put into s
? direct to the glauflhter
houat."
Another instance w$ by a
wholeaale beef butcher, '?'hi- av< rage
price for a prime four-year-old ox is
1173. The wholesale butcher soils this
htered "\ t" th.- n tali butch?
$163. The wholesale but.her then sells
the bide, tallow and ollh r "l'V-pr"d
i.' ta," calad the "fifth quarter," for
$28. This makes altogether $191 tor
the ox. But from tins must be de?
ducted $12 for octroi dutlea ami $3 for
which reduces th.. sun to .<17'?.
thus leavlnc the narrow profit of ?*," on
the operation. Wien the COSt Of ralS
Infl tie ox and keeping it in flOOd OOO?
dttlon fer four years bo considered, to
iay nothing of veterinary services ami
wages, it will be seen that the whole*
uteher b is a pretty hard time of
it t>? make both ends meet.
The high prices now prevailing la
France, not only for butchers' meat, but
for dalrj products snd vegetables, when
analysed glvs regulte almtlar to I
| tes, tiled by the 'dear beef problem.
Moreover, with the Increaie of ?
workmen's wants have also Increased.
a few years ago the French workman
(led a ith a good "pot-au?/eu,"
?i ide "f | ? ? ?? portions of beef,
ones or ta ice a wei k But now..
Line workman insists upon bavins
mast meat aim" i every day, and bis
wife, who invariably does all the mar?
keting, gets scolded at each family
nu ni. Being, eg it ?rere, between "the
devil ami the deep sea," the French
housewife has etarted out on :t furtoua
war sflslnat the butoher. Thus th.- pr<
? t,t 11 \ nlutlon li not to obtain higher
, but what, sfter all, is merely
.tin r method of securing greater ?-"tn
tot t in nie kiwi prices Tins no?
.'tin.- itruggrle is ni\ imr
the government ? "mauvala quart
d'heure," and bristles with interest for
atudtnta ot practical political economy.
