Overplaying the " Psychological "
Pleasantry.
* I.ike Bast?, like man." Secretary William *'?
l.c.ltleld, who as a practical business man ought
to have known better, fell into the error the other
da*.- at Balalgh, N. C. of trying to hide an Irritating
?ttnatioo under a thinjy specious phrase, l'y bor
rowlng President Wilson's explanation that ?the
pr?sent depression In business is merely "psycho?
logical" he ranged himself with Umso "?New
Thought" miracle workers in politics who believe
that economic experiences caaa never be unpleasant
except that thinking makes them so.
It is no great tribute to the sagacity of those who
are now -**aiTe*"ln** from business depression to tall
Iheni that all the trouble is In their own minds.
For that reason, as "The Evening Post" sadly
pointed out the other night, Mr. Wilson's phrase
has merely created irritation and has been treated
as a Y?sry tactless placa o? facet iousness. The
country bus now learned that Mr. Wilson cannot
resist the beef tt lug temptation to play with phrases.
But Mr. Redfleld, head of the Department of Com
mer?-e and closer in touch than any other member
of tho Cabinet with trade and industry, ought to
know that it doe-* n<-> good to dodge facta and figure*
and to say that the let-down in business which
many parts of the country feel la merely "psycho
logical.**
it would be boneeter and more courageous to
admit that the general reduction of tariff rates was
intended t?> Increase imports and depress prices.
The tariff rntes were CUl in order to lessen the high
v?nst of ttving, and if they haven't lowered prices
and put something of a damper on the domestic
?producer they bare failed to accomplish the chief
object of the Demo?cratic revisers. We should
have inore **eapect for Mr. Itedlield if be bad
bragged about the Increase of imports and the re
duction "f exports Instead of trying to apologize
for them an?l t?? prove that the readjust inen? they
jiif bringing about is not real, but Imaginary.
IV? ?h? not think that popular dissatisfaction with
the administration can be traced chietly to its tarin
policy. Everjbo.lv i.iiew tliat some profits must be
cut off and ?joma activity must be checked by down?
ward revision. Business has pretty well discounted
the effects of tariff legislation. What m?ist alarms
the busineas world now is the ineptitude of the ad?
ministration in dealing with foreign affair?, coupled
with its desire t?> deceive Itself in negotiations with
tin* labor interests over anti-trust legislation. In
these two fields the President has followed a t<?r
tu??:is. double trail, and the country has come to
distrust what he may do in Mexico or in the
Philippin?** and In the way <?f destroying the equal
application of the Sherman anti-trust law far more
than what he ha? done in lowering tariff rates and
Inviting larger imports.
Discontent with Mr. Wilson's Mexican and labor
policies is not '-psychological.'- it cannot be laid
by an infelicitous phrase, even from the stock bar?
rel of a usually felicitous pbrasemaker,
From Farmer to Consumer.
We have vigorous competition t?i thank for a
most Interesting experiment to be undertaken by
the Adams Express Company, a few years ago to
sugg-est that an express Company might solve the
high-cost-of-llvlng problem would have caused one's
burial under an avalanche of ridicule. But (hat is
Just what the Adams Bxpreaa Company, puabed
bard by the parcel post, purposes trying through
the establishment <?t' an order and Pood Product!
Bureau,
Fruits, berries, butter, egKs. poultry, lish, meats
?these are i few of the delicacies which this
coin]?any will deliver at your door direct from th?*
locality of their origin. The rates charged win
compete with those of the parcel post, and prompt
?enrice will be a feature, the company assuming
r?'sponsibility toward both buyer and seller not
alone in this matter, but also in the matter of pay?
ment. The bureau, if successful, will thus become
a competitor Of the city market, of the middleman
in nil his guisee.
The moral Of which would appear to be that
once y.iii introduce | new element of competition
into our complex industrial fabric its ramifications
will surprise e\?-n the most optimistic.
A Departmental ?Court.
; Magistrat? IfeAdoo, in the report of the
Hoard <?f city Magistrates f??r 1918, Just pubuahed,
?J Uress on the Bead f?>r a new "departmental
court"' to handle actions brought by the various
brandies of the city government to enforce laws
and ordinances tellement house riolations, build-1
?lug violations, child lalK?r violations, tire prevention
rlolatlona, health violations and the like, it is ? ue
of the pressing problems <?f judicial reform la this
city. At present these ?ases are brought to trial in
the magiatratee* courts, scattered around the city.
They dog the calendars, preventing prompt atten?
tion to other eases They themselves ?lo i?.?t get the
attent <>n which they deserve, for it is Idle to expect
a magistrate to l?e able offhand t<? render ad??piate
decisions in cases of ibis nature, where the knowl?
edge and experience of a specialist in municipal
law would n??t be t<><? much.
The departmental court, either one central <?>uit
for the city, to hamlle all Buck cases, or on?- magis?
trate's court In each bOTOOfh, giving attention to
a calendar of such ?ases o?. specified days, and
presided over by ma ?? is tritt es win? have specialized
In them, is the way to meet this difficulty. It
would be a saving of time and money f??r the city.
The department heads forced to bring actions could
f?tel certain that the cas**? would be called promptly
and handled carefully and with sjieclal knowl
edjre There would !?.? one stnn?lard ??f enforce
ment of the laws and erdlnances -not as many
standards as there are magistrates; ami the effect
of this on citizen*? and property owners would be
highly salutary. Ilu* would learn what they were
e**pe?ted to live up I?? an?l what penalty await?*?l
them if they fallet!, Such a curse <?f education is
badly needed here.
Provision for such a departmental court was In
. luded, with ??liier valuable improvements in court
procedure, in a i?ii| reorganizing tin* criminal courts
.oh., ate.i IflMi winter by Hi?' t'barlty Organization
Soflety. ? ne Legislature didn't seem t?> realize
the Importance ??f the improvements sought. Since
relief must come by way .?f the ?Legislature, it Is
t?> be hoped the madstrates will press their recoui
mendatlon next winter In the form <>f a bill at
Albany and that the l.iwmal ers will cive more
attention to ft than they did last session.
The Indefatigable Sarah.
Mine. Sarah Is unlike the "old" folk who adon

Is really ??Id. That poor old veteran Christy Mnthcw
Ison, for Instance, is re-illy but thirty four. II?* Is

enty years ago.
No easy t??ur of the big towns Is In her contem?

off a fairly Interesting life she purposes to tour the
world, playing Shakespeare and Maeterlinck and her
French repertory across Am?rica and then tripping
overseas to Australia, South America and ?South Af?
rica with a vaudeville troupe
Mme. Sarah is in the rare position of witnessing
her own immortality. Not only that, she is part of
it. Small wonder that she likes to be about and
that the world ?till rejoices at her presence.
Greetings to Another Great Ship.
There are boats and boats, and nobody can tell
in advance what the disposition of any particular
craft will be. The Vaterlnnd was a calm, self
possesaed giantess on the high Feas, but misbehaved
sadly in narrower waters. Now cornea the new
Aqultania and slips into her North River dock as
quietly as a eatboat shooting for h?*r moorings.
Twenty minutes sees the operation completed with?
out a barge threatened or a hawser parted.
(if course, the A<piitania is shorter than the Vater?
land by some 49 feet, being only Pol over all
as against the German vessel's 960. And when
you are navigating a boat a sixth of a mile long
in a waterway only a half mile wide a matter of
.??? feet adds considerably t?> your problem. This
difference may account for some of the Vaterland's
troubles. Also there is the matter of channel. The
th'O]) water fairway to the Hoboken docks is de?
clared to be too narrow for proper nianrruvrinj:,
and the Hamburg American bine has already ap?
plied to Congress fora channel enlargement.
This dredging should be ??one and ?loin* promptly.
There sli??ul?l be no parsimonious policy toward the
nation's greates! harbor. Nevertheless, it is worth
hoping that the Vaterland will learn manners as the
miles go by and behave as well as did her dodle
English sister the next time she drops in for a
stay.
Platforms and Gored Oxen.
To a disinterested ??utsiiier it is always amusing
to see the swiftly changing values put by Interested
insiders ??ti the virtue of loyalty to party declara?
tions of principle. A platform Is usually a ?good
thin*,' t<> stay on <?r t?> jump off, according t?> dr?
cumstances. Senators O'Gorman, Walsh and v.-ir
daman and "The New York American'' have bitterly
assailed Mr. Wilson because he threw overboard th"
Democratic National Convention's declaration in
favor ?if a t??lls exemption for American coast wise
shipping going through the Panama ranal. The
President was described by them as a violator <>f
th?* party's solemn compacts with the people.
But now that Mr. Wilson is -rolntr to put a check
reta ?m Representative .iones, the Filipino emand
pator, and p-ive his O. K. t?> a hill wlih-h departs
very widely from what flu* Democratic party prom?
ised in its ?national platform. "The American" hails
the abrogation of the platform as laudable states
manshlp. If said yesterday: "Since the administra
lion was s?> ready t<> abandon the patr!?>tic and help?
ful Panama plank, it may he applauded for aban?
doning now the unpatriotic and harmful Philippine
plank."
Here i- a ease where political interest slanghter
political logic. The Baltimore platform is none of
our concern. We are clad that the President has
fractured it at two points Yet if we hoi censured
him for breaking it at the one we should not now
laud him for breaking it at the other. Whose o*r is
gored Is still .?ne of the llvest issues In polities
in the Morning Just at Dawn.

THE TALK OF THE DAY.
Recently two partners in a d??\vntown firm were
promised a visit from an undesirable a??|i;aintance.
Jinks (let's call him) was alune in the office at noon.
Ho looked at the clock, went ??ut, had luncheon,
killed time and finally went to the ball ground?.
leaving Uinks (his partner) to take care of the "co*u
I'.'iny."
He was firmly glued In his seat at the game when
.-?nie one ?tapped him on the shoulder.
"Well, if you ain't a coward!" he heard the som*;
one say, and the "some one" was his partner, who,
returning to the office, had sneaked away so that
Jinks would be the victim of the ?aller.

A CALL FOR THE COLONEL
The Only Man to Lead Republicans Out
of the Wilderness.
To the Editar of The Tribune.
Sir: I have voted the Republican ticket
since the fall of lficX?. when I first voted
for "Abe" Lincoln for President, ami am
M stanch as ever in the support of the
principles of my party. T voted for Will?
iam Howard Taft In 1S12, and would do
so aealn if he were nominated on the Re?
publican ticket In 1916, If alive and able
to get to the polls.
I trust the party to which I belong will
nominate a Rood, loyal American states?
man like Colonel Roosevelt. All 1 have
ever liad against ex-President Roosevelt
is that he tried to pull down the bouse I
Ix!i?p<1 to build, the Republican party.
I have forgiven him for this act. although
at the time I s.ml I never would do so.
What we need now is ?action, not "watch?
ful iraiting." If Mr. Roosevelt was in the
White House there would be "something
doirii," besidts treating with brigands and
murderers.
I think Roosevelt the only man that ca:i
unite his party and l?-ad us out of the I
"wilderness.'' WILLIAM M. PBCX,

?a I.ich, coming as it ?loes from California,
m ?:.-t ?late o? June I, irrefragably denotes
an incorrigible disposition in the West to
"grab." such as was the Hetch-hetchy
man, Illegally put through the t'nited
States Senat?:
"A withdrawal order by which William
H. Taft, while President, In 1900 exempted

the oil land from entry by private lo?
cators. Judge Pooling s decision gives to
the Midway Oil Company and the Stand

That in his decision Judge Dooling says,
"The effect of these withdrawal orders is
to suspend the mineral laws of the I'nlted
States," and that "The executive power

THE PENROSE ISSUE
It I? Simply Roosevelt or Anti-Roose?
velt in This Reader's View.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: I have followed The Tribune for
many years ?beginning with Horace Gree
ley? as an exponent of the true principles
of the Republican party. Lately 1 have
be?mi interested in its attacks upon Sen?
ator Penrose and former Senator Foraker
and the applause it has received from
former President Roosevelt for those at?
tacks. Am I right in assuming that as
between Poorest and Foraker, on the one
hand, a..d Roosevelt, on the other. The
Tribune would take Its stand with the
latter? If so, I am sure The Tribune is at
od?ls with ninety-nine out of one hundred
old line and new line Republicans.
penrose and Foraker may be much that I
The Tribuns thinks; they may have mis?
taken Ideas of the principles of the Re?
publican party; they may at times have
violated those principles; but. In all that,
they have kept nearer the heart of the
Republican party than has the man who
imagines himself to be the reincarnation
of Abraham IJncoln and then does vio
lenco to every noble instinct, purpose
and consummation for which Republicans
venerate the name of the great emanci?
pator.
What has The Tribune to say about it
SS ? whole.' Has it. too. Joined the ranks
of those who "stand at Armageddon and
battle for the Lord*' and of those who

A NOTABLE EXCEPTION
The Courageous Stand of J. Hampton
Moore in the House.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: It must be gratifying to thousands
of present and former Pennsylvanians,
as it certainly Is to me, that while In
the matter of the Clayton bill labor ex?
emptions the entire House of Repre?
sentative.?, with apparently but an Indi
? idtia' exception, bowed In pusillanimous
submission to the dictate of Samuel
tiompers and his associates, there was at
Wast one man, Representative J. Hamp?
ton Moore, of Pennsylvania, who had
the courage to express his abhorrence of
class legislation and his defiance of that
largest and most cruel of trust--?the
labor trust.
All honor to Mr Moore, and may his
constituents show their appreciation of
his principles and hla courage by long
retaining him in Congress, or by afford?
ing him the opportunity to serve them
and hie country In some mure exalted
office. W. C. c.
