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.

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
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. The

n year the roads asked for a further
increase in rates sufficient to cover this
The Interstate Commerce Commis
sion had no discretion. 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

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
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
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
. - J ' v .
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.

THE HUNTINGTON LIBRARY

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

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Conditions in Russia Today Compared With Those in France
During the Revolution Sunday Baseball
To the r.Aitor of the Evening Public htdacr:
Sir I have noted our extremely In
teresting editorial In today's issue,
ontltled. "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
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

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

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

"Wherell We dd??
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. The
21st of January, 1793. Is slEiied Robes

amanuenses of fate. Tho nuthor cf theso
grand pai;es Is God. nnd upon the face
of theso events Is written tho simple
name, destiny Above these
mysterious compllcajticnsof benefit and
'disaster there arises !ho eternal 'why''
of history. 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.
