Tbe principle thai striking public em? ploy?e lose their places is fair and just. There is a di*-lit;?'i i??n between all the rircumstances <?f public employment and those of private empli -ymeiM ?liai I leaves the strike w i u < * 11 la ?generally re? garded as Indispensable to workmen In Iprivate employment with no place In public employment. In public employ? Imcul the law Itself protects the work? man's tenure of place. He ;s dependen! [for tbe permanence ?>r his job on no one's whim ami on in? one's capacity to [sneered. Hi*- appointment Is due to merit alone. He doet nol need to know ? some on?? ?m ih?> Inside to ?".?m a job, and ' his employer. n??t being in business for the sake <>f profit, is invariably just. If not, imieeii. general*, workmen in pub \ He employ are generally better i?ai?i and work sbnrter hours than do their fellows ? ?!? private employ. Humanitarian coiisiderationi invariably weigh more with tbe public in its ?a ?parity of employer than with the av?r? ai:?' individual or corporation employing ' labor. And If the public Itself wer?, not extraordinarily conscientious in its treat- j Imen! of its working people legislatures-! keen In all matters where large bodies of voters are concerned, might be trusted t<? provide for their welfare. Pension systems, which are the exception in pri? vate employment, are tbe rule, ai least here, in public employment Thai i- only one ?'iivnmstaix-e Illustrating the differ? ence between pni?ii<- and privat?? employ? ment but it is ?typical. ?Collective bargaining, of which tin strike is the weapon, is essential in tbe dealing of the laborer with tbe private employer. It is a regrettable, ? rude and wasteful necessity, bringingon havoc and Buffering right ami i * ? 11 : ii la as ugly a fad as war. bul it is still a necessity, It is an absurdity In public employment. with it? uncommercial purposes and with the employe himself, as ?\ voter and member of the atete, assisting to make the very terms <?f his employment 7/7/. TREATY MAKING POWER l\ GERM AR Y. it may i><> hoped that tbe latest en? largement <>f parliamentary authority in Germany will be more enduring than another notable "new departure" was not long ago it win be reca1l?Bd ??hat there was a formal and sententious an? uouncemenl thai complete ministerial ?responsibility to the Reichstar*, not ex cepting even the Cnancrilor, had been established, and this was declared i??

In a few months, or perhaps week*-, i' wa< foigOtten, and BOW iiohoily would venture t.? ?recall it to g?rions attention. Vet we cannot help reaoembering it. now that another such announcement is made that henceforth the ratification of tbe Reichstag wHl i??- sought for all ?treaties \\iii?-h Involve heavy expenditures and affect the vital interests of the nation. The latter change i** Indeed in smne respects more momentous and significant than the former wonhl have been had ?t really heeii effected.

What ils effect will be Upon the foreign relations of Germany and upon European diplomacy ia food f?r I speculation. There is reason t? ? expect, however, thai the effect will, on ?.he whole, be ?salutary. The participation ot 11Ir-e parliament may in ?some cases ad as la <iet?'i'i'eiii or an obstacle to treaty making, bnl there ?can benodonbt that it will greatly Increase the force and pres? tige of a convention In hare it ?becked with the gpprovsl ??f the elected repre eentattvee of the ?nation.

The ?flnal settlement of the Bo-called ! Gennan potash dispute ??ut <>f court, so to speak, ?s a d<ecided ?triumph for ?sane1 diplomacy.

The constitutionality of the long end shun haul provision, Which was severely Im? pugned, ?- fully ?sustained, it is only t.? tin? way in which thai elatis?* is ap? plied by th?'

In so far as the com? mission attempts thus i?, determine the relation of th.- long ?and short haul rates, irreepe? ii\'- of abaolute rates, it goes be? yond an'- authority that has been vested In it.
