Measure Passed by Congress, When It Has Been Tried Out by the Country, Will Bear Out Chief Executive's Indorsement. Some months ago an indianian of the name of Foulke, who had support ed Mr. Taft for president, wrote him in a tone of criticism of the adminis tration, especially as regards the tar iff question. The president replied, in terms, it was said, of pith and point. Hut the correspondence was not published. All known about it is of a general character. It is now stated that a Mr. Swift, another Indianian who voted the Re publican ticket in 100S, lias in a letter to the president entered a protest against the new tariff law, and taken a fling at Mr. Aldrich and Mr. Cannon, Mr. Taft has replied to hini pointedly, but the letters are withheld. While the full text of (he letters In both of these cases would be interest ing, what circulates without contradic tion about them is sufficient to afford a good text for comment. And one may ask the question, Did Mr. Foulke and Mr. Swift expect Mr. Taft to join in the Insurgent animadversions on Mr. Aldrich and Mr. Cannon? After consulting with them about tariff re vision, and co-operating with them in bringing it about, was he to be ex pected to acquiesce in, or even listen in silence to, denunciations of them and their work? Both the president and his party in congress confronted a most difficult situation last spring. After the pre liminary maneuvering and parleyings, they stood at soliloquy and asked themselves: To revise, or no*, to re vise? That was the question. The business world was all impatience and anxiety for action. Delay was ex pensive. A tariff bill —some bill—was absolutely necessary. Adjournment of the extra session without a bili would not only be a confession of in competency on the part of the Repub licans, but a blow to the business world. The period of uncertainty would be prolonged, and all values injuriously affected. In the very nature of things the measure must be of a compromise character. Nobody could reasonably hope to be entirely satisfied. On cer tain points the Star is in hearty sym pathy with downward revisionists. A compromise, as we all know, was at last effected, and it had the indorse ment, first of a very large majority of the Republicans in both houses, of congress, and then of the president. The country will pass upon the meas ure in November. But does any frank and open man expect the president meanwhile to cut and run, or begin to shilly-shally about bis part of the performance?— Washington (Ind.) Star. Postal Savings Bill. The passage in the senate by a vote of 50 to 22 of the bill to establish a system of postal savings banks would seem to point to the probability that the measure as finally agreed upon in the senate will pass the house. Every Republican senator pres ent voted for the measure, but this result was not brought about until the Smoot amendment had been so reshaped as to modify the methods under which it was proposed that, pos tal savings funds should be handled. Th» opposition to the Smoot amend ment in its original form, which would have permitted the investment of sav ings funds In two per cent, govern ment bonds, was based on the theory that the government would take money from local centers to maintain then J bonds at par. Another .opposition argument was that the funds under the Smoot amendment could be used to establish a centralized bank. As f -/e bill finally passed the senate It provides that the moneys collected through the postal savings system are to be deposited with local banks at a rate of not less than 2% per cent, in terest. and are to remain with such institutions unless withdrawn by the president in case of war or other exigency, and if so withdrawn must be invested in government securities which shall not draw Ifss than 2 1 ,\ per cent, interest. The fixing of the government security interest rate at 2\i per cent, was in accord with an amendment to (he Smoot amendment, offered by Senator Borah, the purpose of which was the exclusion of the ex isting two per cent, issues from the securities in which investment might be made The Smoot amendment in the modi fied form in which it was finally ac cepted would seem to give sufficient assurance that moneys will not be re moved from localities in which they are collected except upon emergency demand Indeed, the measure as It went through the senate makes the government postal system a collective agency for the banks, (hough the gov ernment exacts one-quarter of one per cent, to defray the collection ex penses. Real Leaders of Party. The importance (o the party of tip right leadership was Indicated by President Taft in his tributes lo ex- President Roosevelt and to Gov. Hughe?, of New York state.

MEED FOR YOUNGER ADMIRALS Weak Spct in Navy Called to the At tention of the Country by the President. President Taft's message to con gress advocating reform in the navy personnel indicates plainly the lines along which the administration is working to correct what is believed to be a weak spot in our naval establish ment Our admirals now reach (lag rank so late in life that they are ready for the retired list before they can do any efficient work m the command of squadrons or fleets. It is desired that officers should reach flag rank at an early enough age to have six or eight years of active service ahead of them as flag officers. In practically all other navies the grade of rear admiral is reached at a much younger age than is the ciise with us. Thus, on January 1, 1010, the average age of rear admirals in the various navies was as follows: Jap anese, 50; German, 51; British, 53; Austrian, 55; Italian, 56; French, 59, and Americans 60V&. It will thus be seen that our rear admirals are much older than officers of similar rank in other first-class navies, more than ten years older than Japanese officers and seven years older on the average than British officers. The only practical way of reducing Mio age at which officers roach com mand and flag rank is to adopt the methods by which that result is se cured in other navies. Practically all of them have the egp-in-grade retire ment provision, by which every officer from the grade of lieutenant up is automatically retired on reaching p given age unless he lias been pro moted to the next higher grade. Thus, it might be provided that every com mander who reached 4S years without promotion to captain must be retired, and, similarly, every captain who has reached 53 or 55 without advancement must go to the retired list. An ar rangement of that kind would do in justice to no one as would a system of selection, while it would provide younger admirals with certainty. States and "Foreign" Corporations. In the rase of the Pullman Com pany, as in that of the Western Union, the federal supreme court has taken a view which very materially affects the rights of all important corporations. The significance of the two decisions lies in their bearing on the general principle, often upheld by the same court, that a state has the power to prohibit any corporation created by another state from entering it for the purpose of doing business "locally." and consequently that, if it chooses, as a mere matter of comity, to grant a corporation a license, a right of entry, it may annex any kind or number of conditions to that grant, the only re strictions heretofore recognized being that no corporation can be asked to give up constitutional rights. I'his principle has seemed extreme to many able lawyers, and the court must have felt that some modification of it was necessary. To hold that while states cannot hamper interstate commerce they may mulct or penalize corporations chartered by sister states that apply for permission to enter them for the purpose of doing local business, is to assume a position bristling with practical difficulties and theoretical incongruities. The court now holds that Kansas cannot exclude the Western Union and the Pullman Company from its terri tory. even as far as the doing of pure ly local business is concerned, because they have declined to pay a statutory fee equal to a certain percentage of all their authorized capital. Such a single fee amounts to a tax on the en tire business of the companies, the in terstate as well as the local, and on all their property, wherever situated; anil, of course, such a general tax practically amounts to an interference with interstate commerce, no matter what disguise it wears. For Postal Savings Banks. If the postal savings bank question were submitted to the people it would be discovered that all sections of the country were strongly in favor of such provision for the safe depositing of money in places which have no bank ing facilities of the kind suitable for small savings. It is not probable that any state in the union would vote against the establishment of an insti tution which has found favor and proved its usefulness in many coun tries of Europe, in Canada and in Aus tralia. If there is any reason for opposing such facilities for thrift and such ab solute security for small deposits, which can be made convincing to more than a rather small minority of the American people, it has not yet been disclosed.

The Indiana editors of Republican newspapers in their annual conven tion unanimously adopted a resolu tion of approval of the Payne tariff. Opposition to Postal Savings. I! is going to cause Democratic can didates. newspapers and orators much trouble, during the campaign next fall, to explain the fact that only Senator Chamberlain of Oregon, elected by a Republican legislature in a Republic an state, stood out from the minority to vote for the postal savings bank ! hill which passed the fenute recentlv. It will be found that artful special pleading and dust-throwing will not go far to offset the undeniable fact of all hut unanimous Democratic opposition | to a very popular measure. Follow this advice. Quaker Oats is the best of all foods; It is also the cheapest. When such men as Prof. Fisher of Yale University and Sir James Crichton Browne, LL.D., F.R.S. of London spend the best part of their lives in studying the great question of the nourishing and strengthening qualities of differ ent foods, it is certain that their ad vice is absolutely safe to follow. Professor Fisher found in his ex periments for testing the strength and endurance of athletes that the meat eaters were exhausted long before the men who were fed on such food as Quaker Oats. The powers of endur ance of the non-meat eaters were about eight times those of the meat eaters. Sir James Crichton Browne says— eat more oatmeal, eat plenty of it and eat it frequently. 69 HIS WAY OUT OF IT.

Consul General George Horton has made a report from Athens on the conspicuous work of Greek physicians in combating the country's chief scourges—malarial fever and tubercu losis. An annual average of 2,000 persons die each year from the for mer, while in epidemic years, due to excessive rains, the number exceeds 6,000, which was the case in 1905. The population of Greece is 2,433,806. The people have been interested through lectures, pamphlets, etc., to fight the malaria-carrying mosquito by draining stagnant ponds and throwing petro leum on them. A tuberculosis con gress will be held at Athens next year, to which will be invited not only physicians, but all the mayors and other prominent people of Greece. Two Points of View.
