A IHofkntle of the (Jerntan Coast A blockade of an enemy's coast Is upposed to bo like a shut. door. The- oretically It keeps out the merchant ships of neutrals. The liresumptlon , is that they will not try to run the blockade: If they do they arc subject to capture mid can be condemned to. gether with their cargo. Itelllgerents ' undertaking to blockade must, how-( ever, give due notice by communlca- j tlons addressed to neutral Govern-, nieuts or to their accredited represent-1 atlves. A ship that sailed from n i - neutral country for a nrt of the en finv before otllclal announcement of the blockade Is not subject to cap- ture unless she Ignores notice by an officer of the blockading squadron and makes an attempt to run through the fleet. A cargo is not condeninable If the shipper could not have known at rhe time of sailing that there was fi US(l or ,r(per fertilizers and the t fulness of the heiilth Interests of this to be a blockade.

To use a familiar phrase. Ger- many Is not likely to take tno aggros. r.lon of a blncUade lying down. The action of the Allies would force the Germans to take the offensive sooner or later.

Serrclary Daniels In a New Picture. To the .losephus Panlels gallery the ii'. a service publication, bus added a new nnd striking picture nf the ureal Secretary, who faces the lire of a camera without flinching, hi fact w.tii visible satisfaction, This , tudy shows Mr Danih.h ns the cen. ire of a group on a warship, consist- .iosi.i'itt'.s Hanih.s dominates thei picture and monopolize tlie attention of the beholder, not by reason of a I stalwart, well tailored llgtiro or the born look of command, but iMvause, as inery olllcer of the sort Ice will see at once, he wears a naval uniform cap with a suit of mufti. Such a blend of apparel tJie regula tions forbid to officers, who must ap pear In uniform or when off duty wholly in citizen's clothes. No one can conceive of Admiral Haixikk hav ing his picture taken In a black "Prince Allert" coat and a pair of striped trousers set off by a gold braided service cap. To the credit of the Admiral, It must be said that in this Instance be looks self-conscious and ill at ease on the right of the ruler of the I'nltcd States navy. Secretary Garrison and his assistant, Mr. Franklin D. Koosf.vklt, are un conventional In golf caps, while the I,., , V" B . V. . He might be taken for a guest on the yacht of a captain of industry. Hut there Is no missing the significance of the naval uniform cap which the Hon. Josri'iius Danim.s wears: It Uxor his status as Secretary: otherwise, he might be mistaken for a mere civil ian on the camera tiring line. Much ' In the public eye as Mr. Oamklh Is, he has never looked satisfactorily the part of Secretary of the Navy, not even In the famous photograph that shows him with his arms round the necks of a coriwral of marines and an enlisted man and exuding democ racy In a wtdo knowing smile. There are naval officers who will br shocked by the new picture of Mr IUnim.s. It Is a state of mind not easy to understand. There should rather be astonishment at his numer ation. He might have faced the cam era in a ehapcau with plumes, the parade headgear of the captain of a warship, or be might have attached ' . . . ,,p1 e'","lu- ; xynn:l 7'.n Prince Albert" coat Ith a sword. Per haps In the fulness of time we shall see him so adorned and Immortalized. ' ' w"r thr Q"nIn, nf T"1 rrt Should Ho Under Federal Control. With Its characteristic vlo watch. I be regarded as secondary to public . welfare cannot fall to pcr otve that the saving of taxes demanded for maintenance and the remuneration by the Federal Gniernmeut for taking over the station alone are sufficient reasons fnr this transfer which Tun sr-j has long advocated. Hut an- other nnd far more cogent reason for the assumption by the Federal an- ' thnrltles of the Quarantine Station is the certainly of greater elllciency In ' administration. j The Quarantine Station fulfils pre- funetlon with regard to repelling in listens of deadly diseases that Is discharged by the forts that guard our harlxir against Invasions of shot and shell. Would tw state for one moment entrust sandy Hook and other fortifications j to Us' militia? Can any one doubt that j t)e trained ottlcers and soldiers of i tj)0 United states finny are more onpalilo of operating these forts than ' jjjp best mllltln? And yet the lives 1 n,lrj property of this city have been ff)r V()r(( j,,,,.,!;,,,,! ,,y placing the 1 defences iiu-allist disease and death in the hands of absolutely untrained men, whose term of otllce expires Just when they have liogun to learn some thing of their duties. Moreover, the Health Officer has the privilege of se- , ' I,,U' l I-IImr the ,K.rsonnel of his command nornnt to his own sweet will, tsilltl. e- ' ' ' ' , cal or social. On tho other hand thetoincers of the I'nlted States Pub llle Health Service are trained under military discipline, their grade Itelng In accordance with their proved ca pacity, trained In sonio fifty stations In nil parts of Ihe world. They may be rapidly assigned to duty wher ever difficult problems in sanitation must le quickly solved, whether it be bulionle plague, yellow fever, ship fever, cholera or other less menacing disease. The lives sacrlllced among these ottlcers In pursuit of their duties nttest their courage, and their effi ciency has leen demonstrated on tunny fields. The Intimate connec tion of this service with the Treas ury Department ami all lis custom nnd revenue activities enables th" olllcers to discover early the outbreak of menacing diseases In distant for eign and domestic sections. These are cabled to the central office In Washington, where Surgeon-General It.iiK controls the situation ctnnpletrly. The only reasotiahlo objection that has been urged by the political appointees was the delay Incident to appeals to I Washington, This may have been reu- ' J V ' " phone. It Is absurd now, The Siato Quarantine office hns al ways depended for Information upon Washington, and when it has been found Impotent to cope with the situ ation the Federal authorities were forcisl to stop In, as for Instance when the cholera stricken .Vormannla lay In our waters an alleged menace) to the community sovernl years ago. When the saving to our State of .$100,000 annually fnr maintenance (above fees received) Is considered, besides the savins of fees aggregat ing more than this amount to our hipping Interests, and the willing ness of tho Government to pay for the Quarantine property aboiit .:t.0O0.0H) Is added. It becomes ob vious that the only reason for New York and Huston being the only ports out of tlfly In the fulled Stales still under Siale control must be polltlci! That the latter Is probable was dein onstrated when in the hcgiunln; nt i ., .... ..,, ,. me .-siiiwr iiuniiiiistraiioii ine variis r committee failed to adopt Its chair man's patriotic advice to save the State the largo outlay of ?i!.0(K).()O0. recommended by the present Jlealth Officer, needed for restoring the sta tion. The plums of otllce would have been diminished. It Is fortunate if at last we have a Governor who will regard the distri bution of party perquisites as subordi nate to the Interests of the taxpayers. shipping interests and efficient pro tection of the nation against disease and death. It Is singular that in a season of genuine hardship and suffering among the unemployed, the professional and unrepentant hobo should have been more In the public eye than ever be fore. He has nlmoeit succeeded at times tn occupying the centre of ob servation to Hie disadvantage of his deaervlng fellow sufferer.

FROM A FRIEND OF JAMES. No Victim of the Centralis Fight Were Scalped, Tn NIK KlUToii oP TIIK SPN- .Sir It l not m) piirposn to defc id tie aits of I'lanU .lames at certain pe. ..Is of in taieer ftittlitr than to say. In Justice to ii dead mall, that many of the iicuusa tlnns against him bad no mote basis In fact than the charge made by l..eiilcnatt' Ray that the I'llioll dead were scalped after tlte fight at (Vntrulla, -Mo. Major i' C. Rainwater and Major James Ilaimcrmau of the Confederate service, both of whom were operating about Ccwralla at tho time of the light at that place and both of whom wern at different times lator regular Demo cratic nominees for Mayor of St. Louis, have borne testimony to the fact that no one was scalped nt Ccntrallii and that the light was not In all) rense a massacre, as It Ijns been termed b) overzoalous Northern historians. The truth of tho whole. afTalr Is 4bat Colonel Johnson, a patriotic and brave olllcer, who commanded tho I'nlon forces on that memorable day, was with out experience In warfare and suffered on tli.it iiK'oUtit a crushing defeat. So far as can be learned from reliable authority, Johnson's command numbered nearly S()0 Instead of 4 01), as stated hy Lieutenant H-iN. while the eiiemv mils teruil let,s 'than iiOO. Colonel Joluiron made the fatal mlrtake of dismounting his force and sending every llflh man to the rear with the horses, It was the same error that was committed by the lamented Castor at the battle of the Little Rig Horn, which ended more dis astrously even than did the light at Centralliu The "Colonel Todd" referred to by Lieutenant Hay was Oeorge Appleton J'od, who was killed In October, 1864, Mille leading a charge against the Sec ond Colorado Infantry on the Rig Rlue near Independence, Mo. Tod'a Imme diate commander was tleneral Joelh Shelli) afterward l'nltel States Mar t.!,.i 1 at Kansas City, and one of the gallant llgures of the civil -war In the West. Flank James served under Tod With at Central,.! nnd nt the flgnt on the Rig Rlue. At that tlmo James was a regularl) enlisted soldier In the Con federate servlco and a member of Shel by's command. Tod at thn outbreak of the civil war was, with his father, Oinrgo Moncrlef Tod, a ralltvad contractor In Missouri, and tlieie Is ample evidence to show that both stood well for personal and buslneeoi Pv.egrp) The younger Tod earned a name in a lighter which made him -well remembered In MIfhouiI, and while the two James brothers, served under him, so too did such men as William tlregg, John Jnrrett and Fletcher Taylor. After the war aregg beramo one of the wealthiest and most respected farm ers of northern Missouri. Jarmtt pe-.t rb Ii as a t.i'ttle raiser In Texas, whei. he lu-ld with honor a number of puhli h!1Im, and Taylor ilied a pl.-sp-rom coiitrai tor .u Oiegon All served at I'etittaiia as well as In the fluht on the Rig Rlue, anil ail in later )enrs imllg ii.inll denied the stories of sculping and massacre. Frank James's friends, of whom I was one, admit that manv of his earl) uets were, not commendable, but we do treU. that the thlrtv years of useful clilzer.shlp and personal uprightness which precedes! hln death went far to atone for the rest.

FINAL HUSH IS UiSiTI Although yesterday was the last d for filing Income tax returns, theie was not the rush nt the diatom Holier that Collector Anderson bad antieiptted There was a steady stream of peisnns all day long, and three big sacks of moll were received, but the oftlcc w-as not pressed. Mr Anderson was of the opinion that the big rush of Saturday nlKht erne caused by many persons thinking that was the last day. and the big business done then was responsible for the letup )esterday. The Third District olllce at Sixteenth street and Third avenue being the of fice for the residence sections of Man hattan. It wan expected that on it would fall tho brunt of thn rush, and that Pioved to bo the case, but aa the van majority of the returns were made by mall the office was not swamped Returns mailed early enough to h postmarked by lit o'clock to-night will lie counted ns having been lllud within the period prescribed For those who do not file the pemil'y Is a fine ramrlnr from $20 to $1,000. Collector Andr son, however, did not anticipate t1mt there would be many delinquents, most persons have a fair knowledge of the requirements of the Income tax law tills year. The expense to corporations, banks and trust companies of collecting th Income tax bos proved a thorn In the side of the olllcers of these companies Although many of them were wrlthlna it the thought that they had to act aa "Involuntary agents for the Governmen' without compensation," as one man ex pressed It. they would not put their oh jecllons Into statements for quotation. To at least one corporation, It was learned, tho cost of collection of the tax has been greater than the ta col lected. An officer of one of the largest trw companies said : "We have been too busy to find ou' Jut what proportion the cost of collee 'lo' bears tn the amount of tax col le.'led. but ' Is large We have been nlriged to hue eighi ;i f 1 . 1 1 1 , t.;i 1 eprks md an expert who does nothing but stl. lighten out tax tang ee for our ell ents Many of our officials have beet) foiced to give up a large part of the!'
