Fair Treatment for the Railroads an Urgent National Duty. Questions asked at the railroad rat? rehearing !n TTsshington indicate thst some of the members of the Interwtafe Commer?a Commission do not graap the problem with which they sre dealing. Their point of view seems still to be that of the railroad baiter la the good old times when railroad baiting was supposed to be a patriotic pastime. \\ by was the case of tho Eastern railroad" ?a hieb had unsuccessfully appealed for a G cent increase in freight ratea, ordered to be re> opened? Manifestly it wag becauae the war In Kurope had made the commission's decision of Augast 1 loot preposterous. In that decision, handed down after tho stock- exchanges of Europe and America liad do&cd. and aven after Germany had declared war on Russia, the commission tool it upon Itself to Ignore cue of tho most momentous economic events in the world's history. A body .?f deaf, dumb and blind men. holding consulta tions in a padlocked sub basement. COOld not have ??een more oblivious of the world wide effects of 1 he great Du rope? n conf! I \ ?Jedaloa Mke that which taiKed peace when there was no peace, could Dot be expected to s ve -.'iri?fscti<irt. Public opinion tva? tlmost unanimous in regarding it as one of the most Inopportune ofiidal judgments ever deli'cred. Rveu th.- con mission soon found out that a -voi'd r?ar ?as ??n and that, s*, far as ?conomie ??can ta were con cerned, the United States whs disastrously in >oKed In i;. The rehearing was granted becauae the eonmisSlon rcall/ed thai ? new element bad been Introduced into the ease made in behalf of the railroads. If there was no such element, there ??.ss no reason whatever from the eomm'-sion'.s P"int of view for reconsidering a decision only a few weeks old. which bad been arrived 8t after two or three years of laborious Investigation. Tet although the commission's belat??d discovery that a greflt European war had broken out was the only intelligible ground for granting a rear gument we find the commissioners asking questions indicating that the extraordinary depression caused by the war 1e In their opinion rjo ground for grant ir,g the railroads further relief. According to one account of th? bearing on Monday. Commis^ionur Clements sf.ked Mr WUlard. the president of the Baltimore & Ubio Railroad, "if he thought Hint Ute railroads suovjld be dealt with In auy other muu ner than other indu?trios affected by war condi ti'in?-." Such s question is Mule sborl ?if amazing. Othe ? industries are left free by the government to regu? late tbelr own affaire. I bey uuy raise their ? as they please without Interference from Wash ingtou. But the railroads have no free haud. Their earning power Ig limited for theiu by the interstate Oommerew Commission's decrees, and they may be made to ttarve, even in the midst of genersJ plenty, if the commission thinks it ad? visable to starve them. For the last five or sis years the. rnmmtanloTi has advooafpd a programme of slow starvation. It has been graduslly weakening the resources of the rallrosds and cutting down their earning power. It recognized in the decision of August 1 that the starving process bad goue dangerously far. al? though it refns?-d the very moderato rennest of the Kastern railroads for a flat ?> por cent increase In freight rates. Nos? the disturbance of business caused by the war has changed the plight of the railroads from slow starvation to Quick starvation. Tet the commission ?"em? little concerned- Some of its n-emhe- eren warn to rid themselves 1 r re ?ponslblliry fur the patient's conditiou by claiming that they have no move t" do with his troubles than with the troubl?-?* of other Industries not sub? ject to governmental regulation. Tbst Is an absolutely illogical position. The rail? roads sre the legsl wards of the commis>i.vi. It has the exclusive powerr to look afte. ,h< tr wr'fare. They have no power to ??nre for themselves. It |g therefore the commission's duty to see that the ?.?arriera are permitted N?make a thing in ordinary times and to protect them against annihilation in times of extraordinary disturbance. No sttitude toward the rallrosds oould be more odious than that of Mr Frsndeis. the commission s couaaei. He criticises the Bsltimorc & Ohio Rail road for continuing to pay dividends while it la discharging eiuplovoi iu order to reduce expenses. But it should be the first business of the commis? sion to see that the earnings of the railroads are sufflcient both to keep a proper working force in? tact and to pay fair return? to stockholdors. TTie commission should remember also that more tbsn e Juat treatment of the government controlled common Mirlen Is involved in an increase ?if rates. The problem of iutcruational exchange? must enter into auy ratluual rata ?tatalm If the stock ei changjs sre to open ?gain the dumping on this markt-f. of ? vast quantity of Arneriesn railroad ?hares? held abroad can be bout delayed by a re e-stiihllibment of the value of our rsilrosd ?ecuri ties. laissMl on larger earning power. At the best, much American capital will be uss?d up In tsklng care Of the securities returned from abroad. The Kuroia*an governments will alto bid for lsrge quan? tities ?>f free capital at higher Inters?** rate?, end it ht tsbvlous, as MT.

Officials Defiant and Secure. The .publication of th,- state Civil Service Com? mission''s answer to the CItII Service Reform As? sociate's charges of lawhreaking ?ud nepotism ?hows rj.ie officials to be completely ignorant of, or ?ndifTVnrnt to, the purpose for which tlielr board was created. 11 II not necessary to chavarlerize this bodtv HP "a commission engaged in cultivating graft." as dos-s the Heform Association, in order to mnkrs the point that It is unfit for 1t? work. Il is only necessary to prove that the commission frequently engasrod in ohVia) actions contrary to ? the fostpriug of the merit system ''hat ll the Can by the members' own admissions In answer, to the a>^orjaUon's charge?. The assertioii that it used Its di>cT?-tion and eh all enget, tb<? association's right to irapogn its motives is a puerile defiance of ori'iiasin which, being puerile, is negligible. In effort the i-oinmission's answer is, "Well, what are you going to do ?bout it?" And it. must be confessed that ander the law as it stards?amend? ed to suit the t ontniiaelon's own eiewa ltotMng ? an be done until next winter. Then a new Gov-? ernor may rw-f-t'er charges against these officials )<> Hie Seivite and also roeommend chances In the law which would Cur? the possibility of such an attitude oa the pan <>r any future commission. It Is pertinent lo roe?!! that Mr. Whitman lias prom? ised to *io this, whereas Mr. s?lyun lias ducked tli<' i>.srjc. The Seizure of the Brindilla. If the/-mound fur the seizure of the tank Bteaoa ship l?-,;mdii!a is lier transfer from Germ?n to America*] registry, there is a pretty international lega! srgr.sb'nle In proapesct, Acoording to on? re pert, tb?*- seizure was expected by Washington and Is slosjj?usnl as a test sa'-e. If this is true, the Halifax, prize court, is likely to witness a memo? rable ergument that will scarcely end with Its decision. Ihe isnovis'on of the PeolsrnMorj of r/>ndon is fairly strong against rhe validity of the transfer. Articles CAT declares: The tiwnsfer of an enemy's ?esssl to a neutral flag effacted after the outbreak of hostilities is void unices it is proved that such transfer was not made in order to evade the cons?quences to which an enrnnr's vcisel, as such, is exposed. It is psv-.sthle that the transfer was. 1n fact, made for this very purpose- to prevent the ?hip'f cap? ure sss a prize 1f she should sflll under tbe ?Ver man flbt;. Tbejia Ik. however, she fa<t that Great Britain b?ss nut ratified the Deklaration of ixsndon and tha? she mn icaroely lvld the United States to its rrrJes. Aside from the I" laratJOB, the tr?n? fer of vrssols to a neutral flag ?fand-, as one of the many moot questions of international law. The chiRiires for dispute, for learned legal argu? ment anil fur hot emotions are many. Let us all bear in mind that ihe rieht? of the eise are do. batable and that there is no need of crying out until we are bUTt. Tbe right of England to pm ce<-d ae> she ha* done and to try out tbe iss,,,. be? fore a prize court is scarcely controvertible. To Beat Tammany, Vote for Whitman. Mayor* Mitcbel should not endeavor to reconcile f?omo of the things be ha? said ugalnst Tammany with support of Sohmcr, Benael, Ahearn and lint fen without looking utterly ridiculous. In repu? diating tho.-e worthies be squares himself with his an*: Tammany position of last year. F.ut there re? mains some further squaring to be done, lie prom? ises to support Governor Glynn, admits that he disapprove? strongly of some Glynn appointments and e-oaogiiea the short hallot system all in one breath. That Is, the Mayor advocates a system making | Governor ?li-powerful as to appoint menis. yet promises to give his personal rapport to one whose conduct iu that line of duty he critl It is on "logic" of this nature that Tammany must rely this year. Governor Glynn boaats <if his economy in figures which he caniiot prora and dares not try to Item? ize, while hanging to bis coattail? are Itamany'i B?hmer, who turned over the huge, patronage of his office to "the organisation,'' ami Beusel, recom mended for indictment by Governor Glyan'l os\n Investigator, That Is what Governor Glynu's elec tion means -a return to office of tbe Tammany gang which for four years has been plundering the state. It may be that Mayor Mitehel ?8 willing to ?Und lu ?state affairs for that which he cam? paigned acairist 1n this city. It may be that Prai dent Wilson Is willing to Infliet SUCh governrn< n'? en the State of Now York If only a nemos-ratio <'i>ngre<s delegation run lie sen' to WasbingtoJ The t-.'sptiiisntiiitt.- must be clearly aeftnetl only if the Glvnn ticket receives this year thou? sands of votes which are naturally, noYmally ;,nti Tammany can it be elected.

Republican party must realize tiiat many unfortunate inci? dents an- now occurring that might hove been avoided if The Tribune's advice had been followed and Mr. Hin men nominated. l'or Instance, Governor Glynn, who! ha? always been anti-Tammany, has d the tablea on his opponent by pointing out the Murphy-Whitman sl ,.i. T. R.. instead ot" rampaging through the ?tat? pointing out the weather vane qualities of Mr. Whitman, would once again be back in the G. 0. P. fold. 1 fancy I hear soma moseback say, "We don't vaut him back." Rut you will after election. Ths? voters want no Murphyiscd Republican. Then Mr. Whitman's knowledge of ?fate finances is to incomplete that he is really making it easy for Governor Glynn to show how ill prepared the Republican candidate is to assume the responsibility of the gubernatorial office. It would be much better for Mr. Whitman to refrain from discussing Matt finance, becuuse he docs net iinilfr.>ta::d the matter himself, and those who are furnishing him with the figures are either hopelessly ignorant of their subject or are trying to erect a "l.iini of straw" for Governor Glynn to demolish on the stump. So far the most cursory reading of the speeches shows that the advantage is all With Governor (?lynn. Mr. Whit mun should -tick to the electric chair as hi? campaign theme.

Sir: Mrs. Sefton, your Englewood. correspondent, would have women choose cither marriage or a career. No allowance i? made for the many women who are fitted for marriage and a t-areer. Such a stand cannot be taken without making byword? of human lib-, irtv aad justice. The fact that there is nothinj' more important thsn the welfare of the children should not blind th? fact that BSany wives ami mother? are so situated from the point of health and other circumstances that they are able to teach, or to follow ether professions, and at the sam* time do full justice to their househu'.d. duties and to their children. There' come to nsind the esses of several mother?, formerly teachers, whose hus? bands have died and left them with children of ?chool age. To efferent the?e women from earning their livipg teaching, a position which they can fill more ably than many unmarried i/omen, i? to make an unfair ditcrimi nation against marriage and mother-, hood. My definition of "a woman who jus-: ti'ie? h*r ?aiateac? by productive work' of pome kind" certainly would not ex? clude tie mother. If raiting children it not productive work there is noth-( ing which may be dignified by that name. The fact remains thst there ?re. countless numbere of women, with? out chick or child, for whom the only just description is that of Tiaras' the body politic. A woman who em? ploy.-; as ?ervants not one, but dozen, "ignorant foreign peasants" is lar from being economically inde? pendent. Not long ago a m?n could lead an idle existence, If his financial condi? tion permitted him to do -o, without inviting unf?VOr?ble criticism. The possession of wealth no Ion) I idleness in a man. lie must eithi tributo h.? share to the social work or forfeit hia own respe? of his friends. Unless a - fail the day is not lar distant when idle women will be regarded in the same waj E, W. VAN VALKENBURGH. East Orange, N. .!., Oct. 18, 1914. GIFTS FROM "U. S. A."
