Throughout the perplexing and r.ot infrequently vexatious negotiations that have resulted in the present situation with respect of the transportation prob lem of New York Mayor Gatnor has persistently refused to allow himself to be diverted from the principal object to be attained. So many interests have been involved in the consideration of the subject, so many important collateral issues have required treatment, that to have kept constantly to the main ques tion is in the nature of an intellectual feat. What the exact terms of the offer now before the authorities aro any citi zen is at liberty to find out by reading the documents, and possibly a few score New Yorkers have done this. Most of us, however, havo neither the time nor the inclination for 6uch original re search, and for that reason the inter view with Mayor G.VYNOU printed in The Sun of yesterday was a most help ful and illuminating document. It tells , the whole story from beginning to end with a clarity that reduces all technicali- ties to intelligible language. It puts before the public a plain exposition of exactly what is now being done. Morc- ( over, it carries conviction as to the sin- i cerity and intelligence exhibited by the public officers who have borne the burden of a difficult and temporarily thankless task. New York is greatly indebted to Mayor Gatnor for this utterance. Twin Infamies. We do not believe that peimanent prosperity will come through or by dis honesty, and in the next place we be lieve that this country cannot afToui to accept proiperity as the price of dis honesty and corruption such as w have seen in the last few days at Cambridge. Mass. On Saturday we published the infamy of Harvard College, an under graduate primary of which showed the crooks cheating the public out of their right to an honest vote: "Tan, 7f J, HoosiTtLT, ! " Thus by every species of fraud imag inable the men who had Mr. Tapt's interests at Harvard Collsge in their keeping achieved a result that in no shape or way represents the Republican voters of Harvard Colleen The vote of a so-called prima rv of Harvard Collepe and th Harvard Law School stirs the country fvn more deeply and is an infamy unmatched even by the kindred infinv.es perpe trated on behalf of Mr Tait in New York, Indianapolis, and Denver and in behalf of Mr. La Fou.ette in North Dakota.

Th Treaties With the Central Amer ican Republic. After many months of fighting Ze LATA was driven out of Nicaragua and cheerful 6ouls hoped and believed that a new day had dawned in that unhappy country. The date of Mr. Zelaya'r resignation was December in, ioi, Since that time President has suc ceeded President with confusing rapid ity and Nicaragua is to-day in a condi tion of political and economic paralysis Why? Mainly because certain member!, of the Senate of tho United Stntt-s ko At to block the passage of a treaty that would make possible the estahlihlnnent of stable government, tho restoration of industry aud the creation of condi- lions that, would lift Nicaragua to n higher plane. The letter from our special rorre spondent with Secretary Knox, pub lished in THE Sun of March 31, i an enlightening contribution. It ilopicth the economio and political demoraliza tion now existing, a deplorable condi tion attributable to the refusal thiif far of a few United States Senator?) to per mit this country to extend to its unfor tunate neighbor the help so grriitly needed. On .limn (I, 1011, Secretary Knox and Minister Castmmj nllhcd their signatures to a simple convent inn by which Nicaragua ottlcially nsbures the proper protection ami discharge of n proposed loan for the refunding of its debts, the adjustment and settlement of rhiinis, the establishment of It finnncw on n sound and stable basis, and for such provision ns is possible, for the development of its natural and economic resources. The convention was promptly sent to the Sennte for its approval, and it re main with that body to-day, hung up by a few men who give no good reason for their opposition to its approval and passage. Resolutions approving the convention have been passed and 6ent to the Senato by numerous organiza tions in this country, including among others the New York Chamber of Com meice, the Produce Exchange of New York, the New York Board of Trade and Transportation, the Chicago Asso ciation of Commerce and the National Board of Trade. The proposed convention docs not establish even a shadow of American suzerainty in Nicaragua, From our point of view it effectively reduces the possibility of intervention for the pro-: tection of aliens resident in that country. ! By its terms this country is even less! directly involved than it is in Santo Domingo. In fact it has been responsi bly urged that the treaty "contains so little of a conventional character bind ing on the United States that it seems almost unnecessary that its provisions should have been incorporated in a solemn treaty." Practically all to which this country binds itself is to take due note of all the provisions of the said (loanl contract when made." and to "consult, in case of any difficulties, with a view to the faithful execution of the provisions of said contract, in order that nil the benefits to Nicaragua and the security of the loan may at the same time bo assured." The provision of Article II. of the treaty doe6 seem to mako such an instrument necessary. By that provision the customs revenues of Nicaragua are made the security for the proposed loan and the Government of that country "agrees not to alter the import or export customs duties, or other charges aftccting the entry, exit or transit of goods, during the existence of tho loan under the said contract, without constitution and agreement with tho Government of the United fetates. The Nicaraguan Government could doubtless borrow in Europe the money needed and could borrow it without the formality of a treaty. It prefers to borrow here, and American bankers in open competition with others have agreed to lend at a price satisfactory to the borrowers, but the loan depends upon the execution of the treaty safe guarding its security. While the Sen ate deliberates and dallies Nicaragua suffers directly and the interests of the Inited btates suffer indirectly. The injury to American interests is of course inconsiderable, but it is not to the credit of a big and presumably friendly neigh bor that it stands inactive while a small and seemincly helpless country lies, as its President said to Secretary Knox, "almost utterly exhausted." There is also pending a similar treaty with Honduras, executed for a similar purpose and promising similar results. Srott In the Antarctic. The message brought from Captain RoDEr.T F. Scott by the Terra Nova is definite enough; " am remaining in the Antarctic another winter in order to continue and complete my work." The Antarctic winter is evidently meant. It bepiii3 in the end of April, when the hiin disappears, and until the return of th sun nbotit four months elape. Amcndsen lelates that the renl sprin? in lflll bejran October :o, when he made his f-econd start for fli south pole. His fust tm occurred on Sepuni)er S, th sun havinc ben visible for fifteen davs. He was eager to Uave his winter qiitMters ns soon as the weather per mitted, for the attainment of the pole before Scott rould reach it wai the pat amount object of the Norwegian ex pedition, and scientific discoveries were of minor importance. Both rxploreis established their win lor qillinw j the Antarctic summer of .... . . . . uun-n, AMUNDSEN at tne uav oi vtha es and Scott at Cape Evans: and while sledging was practicable and the sun was above the horizon they laid out several depots in the direction of their goal. When Scott set out from his winter quarters toward the end of inn is.i matter of conjecture, Shackleto.V made his start in 100S on October 10. It is to Iim noted that, according to infor mation brought on March 27, 1911, to Chriftehurch, New Zealand, by the Terra Nova, on her first voyage from MrMurdo Sound to report progress, Scoit did not know that Amundsen had established wjnter quarters in the Bav of Whales There Lieutenant Pen NELL of the Terra Nova found the Fram on February 4, 101 1 . The Norwegians had built their house for the long sun less season. They had 118 Greenland dogs for the "hike" and final dash to tho pole Scott must have learned be fore leaving New Zealand that he had a rival in Amundsen, and perhaps he held the Norwegian light At any rate Scott could only guess that Amundsen was somewhere to the et of him. Thoy would both have to go into winter quarter.-, and neither toiild begin the expe dition south until soino time after tho sun returned in the end of August. The intelligence rubied from Akaroa. near Chribtchurrh, where the Terra Nova put in yesterday, that Scott had reached a point 150 miles from the fcouth polo on January 3 and was still advancing indicates that lie made his nit from tho winter base much later than Amundsen, or that, he rn- ountcrtd unexpected mishaps and difficulties. But why should this havo been tho case? According to Amund- srN the weather conditions were un usually favorable never was thrrn a better fiiimmer for Antarctic exploration. Tho Norwegians met with no real hard ships. Near tho south pole there were honio blinding snowstorms, but not worse than they hud been used to at home. Twenty days after Amundpen reached the pole on December H Scott is still l&o miles from it, or at least ten days journey in good weather. Sitackleton reached his furthest south on January 0, 1000, when ho was ninety seven miles from tho tiole, but he was "Mazing" n new route among the glaciers and the season was not a good one for Antarctic exploration certainly not of tho halcyon kind which Amcndsen reports. It is not astonishing that. Scott was still 150 miles from his goal on January 3 if he did not, intend to make a race with his rival, about whose plans he knew nothing definite. Scott was perhaps at a disadvantage in relying mainly upon ponies for transport; Amundsen with his well trained and well handled dogs had such splendid success that their superiority over ponies seems to be settled. From the Norwegian's re cital, moreover, it is plain that his ap proach was easier than that of Scott; the latter took Shackleton's route, which in places was tremendously dif ficult. The attainment of tho pole by Scott may be assumed on the strength of Amcndben'b testimony to the pro pitious season. It now becomes a ques tion what the scientific results of the British expedition will be. They ought to transcend the data gathered by Amundsen for obvious reasons. With another winter in the Antarctic Scott should bring home a mass of interesting material, and science will be able to ap plaud him, although tho winning of the south pole as a sporting event disap pointed England. Verdict Against a Christian Science Healer. I The conviction and fine of a Christian Science healer and the ruling of the court against the defendant's claim that he was "practising the tenets of hisj religion" when he treated patients for various diseases for pecuniary gain are i of tru utmost importance not only tol to the regular practitioners, who claim that their field of practice and emolu ment is encroached upon by the former. This proceeding in Judgo Seabubt'b court will doubtless bring the i&sue to 1 adjudication by the higher courts. j The followers of the lato Mrs. MRT ' Baker Eddy. on the one hand, feel that they are entitled to the protection of the law according to tho Constitution of the State of New York, which ex empts their healers from the necessity of obtaining a license to practise and therefore gives them the privilege of pursuing their avocation of "removing j sin and disease" by following the doc-1 trines and teachings of their religion. Tho physicians, on the other hand, feel that they are entitled to the protection of the law. which not only demands of them a liberal preparatory education and the study of all tho branches of medicine in college and hospital but also exacts a rigorous examination by a board appointed by the State. The contention of the former that thev are within the law when they receive compensation for drugloss and prayerful ministrations met by the latter with the claim that any one who ministers to the sick in any manner is competing with them; and the fact that this is done without trouble or expense while they are forced to spend many years to fit themselves for the work intensifies their sense of injustice. The issue is now squarely before the courts. Being in the hands of nn advo cate who is an earnest and conscientious adherent of Christian Science and aided by a shrewd and resourceful lawyer, it will be interesting to observe the out come of these trials in the higher courts. Doubtless both sides will abide by the decision. The Christian Scientist, who ii guided by the teachings nf CnniST in all thines. will obey the Mater. who said: "Bemler unto Cv&ab the thgs that are Cesar's." And the doctrs will doubtless obliterate their doctrinal differences and as law abiding citizens will cease to agitate the subject . A friend of Mr. Brtan's declares that the Nebraskan would not holt even if both Mr Tatt and Mr. Hafimon wre nominated for President, "although Mr. Bbyan might withhold his active sup port " The prenpect ought not to dib ttub Governor JUhmon when he reflects that Mr. Bryan actively supported Judgo Parker, with the result that the Demo cratic vote fell off in the country n round million He. may not flinch, but he is fouling all the ime; nnd fouling his own leptitation.

It la a fine body of robustious rhyme of sea fighters In his "Ballads and Poems," published in London two years ago, Masefleld did for the sea In poetry what Joseph Conrad did in prose. It Is indeed unfortunate that he f-hould i.e f,t to busy himself with socio- logical problems, for when socialism knocks at the Moor srt surely file out the window One line of "fipanlah Waters" or "Posted as Missing" is worth reams of such dreary stuff as The widow In the Bye Street The latter may he good realism, but poetry it certainly ts not There should be an endowment fund for real poet so they wculd not have to pen forty-seven pages of :olaesiiue verse for a living.

To tbf. F.niTon or The fit's Sir: There are two points In Mra. HJorkman's letter of March 3 to which It seems desirable to reply. The reat of her communication la the usual list of assertions to which the suffragists always turn In debate and that Ingenious and apeclntis twisting of defini tion bo characteristic of their ijrgumentd. The two statements to which I refer nre, first, Speaking of the Parliament of Finland: Three women he given Mrth to children with no more aerloua Interruption than a few weeka abaenre from the alttlnga. a matter which moat men legislator would not regard aa militating aerloualy agalnat their cauaea. if Mrs. BJorkman will reread my letter she will see that I am apprehensive of dan ger not to "causes" but to mothers, and by her own Ingenuous showing these Finnish mother legislators leave their babies to be reared In other neat while they folios the new way; My own conviction Is that motherhood begin with the birth of a child: not that It ends there. Secondly. It Is unfortunate that aottia, not all I think and believe, of the suffragists have already attempted to put "sex Into politics." Mr. Workman compare poli tic to religion and education, but they are not analogous. Mrs. Belmont and ethers . hare been quoted In the press as calling upon women to refuse marriage with any . man opposed to or not In .favor of woman 411 fTr o m until Itiav h4 a t ft I 4 .Urn frnn. ' suffrage until they have Attained the fran chlse, and a letter from another woman, who la an ardent, even violent. s'lfTrsglBt, declare that the way to coerce men Into obedience to woman made laws Is "to refuse the sex privilege." Can degraded folly go further, and does she not see that "to refuse as a means of coercion Implies yielding a a measure of Inducement? Long ago Francis Parkman In his essay on woman suffrage said that woman must not forger that there I was something beside her vote he would i be asked to sellber honor. I have waited soma days before answer ing Mr. Itjorkman's letter because it Is unpleasant to write the above facta, and I , would not be understood for a moment to 1 Imply that the foregoing Is s principle of ! the woman suffragist or that perhaps a large majority would not be as disgusted as I at the contemplation of such a condl- tlon of private mind and public morals. However, It I as well for men to understand that some women at least are already con templating the question of "sex In politics" as I have Indicated. Lucv I'. Scot r.

They outnumber the KnslUh by double their number, and It I only n small percentage who are In anything liSs comfortnrto circumstance. Their social position l peculiarly sad.for.alllcd to both the Indian nnd English races, they aro by both disdained, noilected and Shunned The Calcutta JEtenfno Vlnpnteh says: The future nf the Domiciled and Antlo-Indlan communities In India la one that la fraught with graxe torebedlnga.

I ... .l.tl...k..lnr uhrt European and American philanthropists who subscribe to Indian charities know next to nothing. Were an effort made to enlighten charitable opinion on thla head, the resulting gain to the cause of Anglo-Indian education In India would be Incalculable. Of late there has been a strong Impulse toward providing better educational facltl tie for the Domiciled all over India, and the work of the Anglo-Indian Association has been nf the greatest value, but the cause Is an exceedingly difficult one to raise funds for. The wealth of the country lls mostly In the hands of the Indians nnd the Govern ment Indians have calls enough upon their nurses, ther have their depref ed classes and their own ambitions: and their schools and universities, helped by their rich rajahs, are booming ahead. Government also considers itself pledged to help Its Indian suhjects before any other, and spoke It mind on the subject very clearly at n con ference of the asftortatlon held at Calcutta last winter, when its representative told the association that, while sympathizing very greatly with their alms, Government was not prepared to help thorn to the extent desired, nnd that they must look to public charitv for support. I re,d In the Times of Inaia to-doy that of the .1 lacs granted bv Government on the occasion of the i King's recent durbar nt Delhi, for educntlon in India, only three lacs la lac Is 100,000 1 runeed! i.re to be clven to tho Anirlo-lndlan schools: the re.U goes to Indian institutions. imnv incs nave ueen given 10 prrmary schools for Indian boys, five for Indian rcmalo education, i ror maian nostcis. two for technical education, and the Government is holding fivo In reserve.

HARMON TALKS OF HIS DAYS III WASHINGTON . Reveries as He Sat In the Supremo Court and Recalled Many Tersonal Incidents. REAL SERVICE TO COUNTRY Significance) of Our Hlnhest Tribunal and the Need of keeping: It T'nlmpalred. Washington, April 1, Gov. Harmon of Ohio cave a talk this evening at ths National Pre Club here which mad a very favorable Impression. The Oov ernor told with considerable feeling some of the thoughts that came to him to-day as ho fat In the United States Supreme Court. He Mid: As I eat there I thought of a good nunr of those Interesting subjects which some of you no doubt remember In those very trying and momentou dav when I had a small share tn the Government. Some of them were humorous, like the time when that great giant, Intellectually and phyMcallv, In th very first cause I appeared in in that court as Attorney-Qeneral got, the laugh on me. I wa trying? mat most unique ce of the fnlted State against. Tei, involvuit the ownership or ?.oo square miles on the J oanK 01 me itu avici. nuw.,w n ..rier county, Tex , wht"h I now three or four counties In Oklahoma, And I wo using a map I had had the army engineers draw and which I said gave a blrdseye view of the situation. Whereupon Justice Oray leaned over and said: "But, Mr. Attorney, I haven't the eye of a bird." Another time, when fighting a case whets the Ice was a little thin because I expected to gather momentum so as to tilde over that one of the Justice leaned over and said: "How about this point." "I am coming to that, your Honor, later." I replied. He said: "Mr. Attorney, you are there now." All those thought ran over my mind tn.dav. and yet the scrlou one was this' That although that court had all changed with the exception or ono most estimable mnn in that brief span of time, that great tribunal goes on, and I thought about th saying that "men may come and men may go." but our Institutions, we trust In God, will run on forever ana mai me new icet bring simply loyalty to the great funda mental ideals upon which our government in founded. I thought of the Inspiration that that ought to bring to every true American when he Is called on In any capacity to loud a hand to make our Institutlonaauccessful. He can only bo there for a little time. Any nm bltlon that ha may have dwindles into sU nltlcance when It Is compared with th Idcn that for the time being he I giving Ins best efforts, his beet thought, devoting hltn Sfflf to the Institution which Is pasting through his hands, and the highest ambition ' of his life ought to be that his touch upoa those institutions may bo a sustaining and au improving one and that when h ge' through he may not bo remembered as on who in a perfunctory way held a public position The consolation oughUo be thai. If he can truly think, whllo he was thete h upheld all the standards and passed the Institution on to thoe who followed unim paired in Its u.ofuliiess. That idea of re uponsihlllty can never be separated from my Idea of public service And It has been a long time, as I said, since I hate figured In the courts, not slnre I90"i, when I tva b switched off, an to speak. Into tho railroad business as an officer or the court. It Is a real pleasure te) 'get back there nnd to realize what the courts mean to the citizen Gov. Harmon then told or hi arguing tho Transniistourl Freight Association cnM. where, for the firt time the Govern ment secured the enforcement of th nnti-trust law in the Supreme Court of tho United States, and in concluion aid: Now I know you think I am getting old because I am reminiscent, but I cannot help It, and I know that you, even theyounr cst of you, lot your minds wauder back to the das thnt are gon The future is un- (erlaln. but, thank Uod. what Is gone is sale.
