He accepted It reluctnntlv and he has been tlingin; jibes nt it ever since. No one has said that It U a perfect statute. Perfection is not tn be ex jPvted fi oui any legislative body. Laws nre the result of comnromlsp nnd con- cession niiinug conflicting interests, nnd if they nre workable that is about all that can be expected. ( Tho new railroad law Is workable, for it is working. It worked in the first place when tho Railway Labor Board, created to ad just the grievances of the employes, made Its wage award nbout two weeks ago, and thus removed any excuse for a strike. Because the award was not bo large as the men had nsked for there i.was strike gossip for a day or two. it is true, but it soon ceased nipl lias not been heard since. The men got by peaceable arbitration nnd with no ex pense to themselves nnd without in terruption of the business of the country-more than they could have won by a Mrikc. The satisfactory working of the plan of arbitration will lessen the regrets of tiiose woo wisiirii me kw i" uiii.hu provisions penalizing striker. It is likelv tliat as time coes on public senti- ment will inflict penalty enough on men ' who strike in the face of reasonable and workable rules for adjusting grievances bv arbitration. - But the law did not stop with pro visions for wage awards. For the first time it mnde explicit recognition of the duty of the Interstate Commerce Com mission to consent to suc.h rates ns would gua rati tee to the owners, of the rallronds a "fair return on the money invested. The statute fixes this at u minimum of " ner cent and it gives to the commission the power to arrange for , nn additional one-half of one per cent if it thinks the sum Is needed in order to provide money for betterments.

It had. been -commanded to estahlNh rates that would keep the roads solvent. It has obeved the command. Whatever other effect the new rail road law may have it is indisputable that within four months of its passage it has restored the credit 'of the rail roads, and removed from them the han dicap under which they have been suf fering for twcntvfnc years. Now the roads can go Into the open mnrkot and secure the money they need for pro viding new equipment of nil kind. T-llis they could not get in the past because thnr have been starved by timid men in Washington, who feared that if tliry treated the railroads fairly they would be charged with favoring capital nt the PTnense oi uie wuriviu, i.i.

Of course the public will have to pay the bills. But if the railroad managers are faithful to their trust, the public will get all that it pays for. Thu conn try has learned during the past three years that inadequate railroad facili ties are nn expensive luxury. Business men would have been wll'ing to pay two or three times the legal freight rate if thev could have got their goods when thev ordered them. But the railroads were so congested with traffic thnt evervthing received moved slowly and embargoes were put on shipments be cawt th( unities were alrcudy taxed ,..,. cannplt4 If business is to prosper the avenues of distribution must be kept open. We knew this theoretically a long time ngo, but there is no man doing any consider able business who has not had it 1m-' pressed upon him by hard experience since 1017. And instead of being frightened by an increase in the freight rates nnd its possible effect on the cost of living we nre beginning to study the subject in its details. W. .Tett Lauek, an economic expert, for example, has been saying that the new freight rates will not in crease the cost of a pair of shoci to jine rvllilier morts iiiuu ti ii-um ui iur mosti The retailer, in the present state the retailer moro than fi cents ut the nf the shoe market, is likely to absorb this sum instead of passing It on to the consumer. And the snme thing is true of virtually all other commodities lints, shirta, neckties, underwear, clothing and the like. Coal, which is bulky, is about the only thing In common use the price of which Is likely to be affected at all by the new freight rates Daniel Willard, president of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, is of the opinion that the new rates ore likely to decrease prices because of their effect upon b'ic'.uess as a whole. If their ef. feet upon tho railroads is what every one anticipates, Mr. Wlllard's view is likely to be sustained by the development. When buslners Is active and compete I . - J ' v . tevEimrQ "public tlon brlk prices tend downward. Under such conditions the wholesale markets arc open to the little nmii as well as to the big man. Competition in selling al ways brings or keeps prices down. The, rehabilitation of the railroads ought to ease the pressure upon the public In hundreds of different wnys. If It does not help the housing situation, men familiar with the difficulty in the transportation of building materials nt present will be surprised. Much will be heard during the sum- iiicr nnii nuiuuui noout tne laws which the Democrats nassed while thev were In control of Congress, but none of them is oi t renter importance, than the Ksch- Cuiiiniliis railroad law, passed-by n He- J imuiiraii congrrsM nun signed reliie - nits intimated that lie would have vetoed It If he had dared.

THE HUNTINGTON LIBRARY BIBLIOPHILES will regret the re moval from New York of Henry E. Huntington's famous library, probably the finest private library in the world.

Mr. Huntington hns caused heart burnings for many other collectors, for he has never hesitated to outbid every one else when he wished to buy a rare volume. When he paid S.'O.OOO for the (iutenherg Bible in 1012 It wns the highest price that had ever been paid for n printed book. He has bought complete libraries in order to obtain for his own the rare volumes thnt it con tained. Notnble among them were the libraries of Dwight Church, the Dukn of Devonshire nnd Sir Thomas Edger ton. n well as the library of Americana belonging to Judge Benedict. He has thus acquired a collection of six first editions of Shakespeare h plays, In eluding the -1'Hamlct" printed in Lon-J dou in ham, tne original manuscript ot Franklin's "Autobiography" and many other priceless treasures. Book lovers from the East who wish to see these things will now have to cross the continent, but many of them will think that the pleasures In store fpr th'em will well repay for tho time and money spent. It may be that Mr. Huntington has removed his hooks to Cnlifornin in order to attract to the state where he mnde his fortune people who would not otherwise go there, but It is more likely that be wishes to have bis library where he speuds the greater pnrt of the year so that he may enjoy it at his leisure.

"A Lenlno Parallel " - Any student of present events should studv carefully the French Revolution. " t Is true that there is n wonderful parnlled between I.onlno nnd Robespierre, but tlie rather unfavorable Inference thnt ? uauuuy uuenaeti uy tins parallel is opst) to question. It Is true that ItobeEplern went to extremes nnd wns n sacrifice to the cause. It Is probable that Lenlno will follow- his fate; but it does not fol low that cither their causo or their life is nn error. The parallel thnt usually is not drawn ih mat neiuecn mo causes. Honespierre entered public lifo ns a conservative. His cnrllest oration ns u school boy was In prnlsa. of Louis XVI. lie was a student nnd at the beginning of tho revolution wns lenored and insulted ny other members of the assembly. Tho constituent assembly met to remedy tho conditions In France, chiefly due lo the excesses nnd extravagances or tne nobility. The third estate was composed of men of high principles and nothing approaching revolution was in tacit mind. Kvents forced them to conclusions. At first tho nobility rofusccV to confer with them ; then the klmt surrounded their meetlne nlace with troous nt Versailles, When tho assembly moved lo Paris lie sniii up tneir meeting pinre inis forced them to meet In the tennis court and wns marked by the memorable "Oath of the Tennis Court." Tho Itlpg demanded tho assembly to disperse and was met bv Mlrabeuu's celebrated reply: "Tell your master wo are here by the win or the people nnd notiims nut in force of bayonets shall drive us hence." Then, angered by the king's uilltud". tlie peoplo stormed tho Bastille on July I, 178H. Then tlie ItlnK was r.uiKlit cor responding vlth the enemies of Franco In Austria and Prussia Then follows ills flight to V.trcnncs on Juno 51. 1731. Mvcn after that tlie nation remnlns loyal to the Klne. Then the Invasion of France starts. The manifesto of tlie Duke of BrunswIdK threatens Paris France Is on tlie de fensive ngii'nsl tho world and knows that her monarch Is conspiring with her enemies. Then come the Federes from Marseilles. Brest nnd other cities and demand of the assembly tho dethrone ment of the king. Tho .is&elnbly hesi tates nnd does not dethtono him, Paris and tho Federes cltfo the assembly until the fllli of August. 1702, to dethrone the king, This Is not don. Op tlie 10th of August. 1702, tho FedcreB Willi tho sections of Paris lake the Tulleiles. the Swiss guard fires upon the citizens nnd In turn are unnUiitutof Louis XVI, liko a coward, nbandons bis defenders and seeks tlie protection of the assem bly. Shortly (1'crenfter ho Is made pris oner nnd his trial and dcatli follow! After tho 10th of August, 1702. the examination of the secret papers of the king shows that he wns In continuous correspondence with mcmlcs of France nnd that lie had been corrupting mem bers of the nssembl This Infuriated France, for the French Revolution to August 10, 1702, had been carried on with practically no.wolence. Neither the position of the king nor kingship Itself had hoen seriously threatened until very shortly before this date, and tho Frencli people then wakened up to tho fact that tho government so far nB It wus rep resented by tho ItlnR hud been n traitor to France, that his promises had never been sincere, that lie was continuously looking for assistance from tho enemies of Franco nnd had been simply a traitor. Nothlnpr but a strong central power could sa( Franco, , Under those circumstances this power becamo centered ' the commlttoe of public safety. Robespierre, as a mem ber of this committee, did gather the forces of Frame anil repel the world, and what we call tho Terror wiih tho inevitable result of tho rascality of the king and his government. The present condition of Russia truly parallels that of Franco of '8!i -a corrupt nrlntocracy, a weak king .md a revolution led by men of Ideals An Interesting parallel that escapes tho observer of today Is that, notwith standing the fact that tho constituent assembly, followed by (ho legislative nsseiqbly, had practically assumed tho government of France before August 10, 1792, and the notions, of tho government wero very largely thoso of a republic, yet thn 'nid republic wns practically pever mentioned until after that date Danton, Mlrnhenu. Robespierre and their colle.iKUcH hod not urged a ie, public, and oen disavowed it llefei ring to tho American Ideals of u re public, one oiator of tho time stated that ho "hoped that they would not be Inoculated by America." It may be well to consider today how many men who, though conservatives, are indorsing and wlahlng for tlie suc cess of many-of tho Ideas which pub llcly are being denounced as radical. Wo shun tho name but wo are wot. coming the reality. Thoso who enjoy the wealth and power of today may well compare Robespierre and J.enlne. hut thri would bo wise if they minimi ed tho causes of which they nro exponents, nnd to remember that whllo Lcnine may bo destioyed as wao itobesplorre, the principles for which they stand so fae au they nro just cannot bo destroyed. No moro thrilling BUinmary of tho Fiencli Revolution can bo found than in .Victor Hugo's "Nlnoty-threo," from Which I quote a few. fines i. "To bo a member of that convention was tq he hut 41 wave, or tne ocean, and lie oceun, nnd the srca,t. this wast true ot oven "Wherell We dd?? t .j? There was In that convention' a will which was that of nil, and , which was that of no one. That will wlas nn idea irresistible nnd unmeasured, one which blew from the clouds of Heaven. We call It the revolution. As this Idck passed It struck down one and raised another. It carried one on the foam and broke another upon the reefs. To Im pute the revolution to men is to impute the occn to tho waves. It wns In mallty n resultant of events. Kvents dictated tho cost, man simply paid. Kvents dictate, men merelv nlgn.

To blame or praise men ror the results Is nn if wc would praise or blama. tlie figures for tho total. Above tho revolution, truth nnd lustlec remain, ns beyond tho tempest tho stars still bhlne." E. CLINTON KIIOADS. Philadelphia, July 30. As to Sunday Baseball To the f.'rfltor of the feeriifito Pullfe t.trtucr: Sir An Issue of your paper some time nco contained an editorial on "About Blue fiundayn." As long as the absurd and puerile statements, jiossibly Intended as arguments, against our American Christian Sabbath, were contained in "letters" printed In our city papers the writer did not care to notice them. Uut when the same statements. In kind at least, are dignified by editorial presen tation tlicy should not pass without protest, You soy: "Oddly enough, llttio Is cer said about Sunday golf, Sunday motor ing. Sunday swimming, Sunday llslilng, or Sunday tennis." etc. The Superior Court of this state In Its decision of July 21, 1015, declaring Sun day baseball games to bo unlawful, ex plicitly referred to tho fact that such games "are attended by crowds in pro portion to tho fame of tho clubs or the interest taken In thn game In tho com munity," nnd further, "there cannot be any controcrsy ns to the natural nnd reasonable tendency of such a concourse of people In tho built-up portion of a city on Sunday to produce nolso ana disorder." Presumably the samo court would de clare that Sunday golf nnd tennis cnme would not bo unlawful because usually played on prlvato groundB and un attended by large concourses or peoplo creating nolso nnd" disorder by giving vent to their npprovnl or disapproval and thtiH disturbing "tho tranquillity and Deuce of tho neighborhood" on Sunday. Theso games nnd swimming uro not in dulged In, furthermore, on our open cltv lots. ' The Superior Court's decision referred to declares "The Christian religion ana the sanctity of Sunday as a holy day is nn Inseparable part of our fundamental law." The Supremo Court of the I'ultcd States likewise declared In formal de cision: "Whoro there ls no Christian Sabbath there Is no Christian morality, and without this our free institutions cannot be sustained." Then the Christian Sabbath 'Is not only a religious but emphatically a patriotic. Institution ay well. Certain It is that without the meaning, content nnd influence of tho Christian Sabbath tho United Status of America, bb wo know and lovo this country, would never have come into existence nnd Its history ivould have been entirely different, tar less glorious and resplendent. As n rollglous Institution the Chrlstlnn Sao bath Is also the very basis on whlcn all the activities of tho church n nnn. tjucted. Shall the mlnlstors of the (Jos- pel remain silent nnd inactive when It Is Bought to be made a convenient day or sport, amuhument or commercialism t oltalrn said! "You can never destroy the Christian reunion as long as the Sabbnth Is recognised by men ns t, dlvlno Institution." When Lenine and Trotr.ky. with thetr Bolshevik followers or dupes, took over the government of Russia thoy lenllzcd that tho Christian religion wns a grin' obstacle in the way of Soviet success According lo foreign correspondents thoy therefore turned churches Into movlnir. picture theatres, convents into garaces and horse stables, and put tho Sabbath such as It was even In Russia, under E I T H ' S 'A TRIP TO HITLAND" With 10 Famous Bong Writers ED.
