Kcp hart have left no ether course open te At torney General Alter than that which he ass Indicated he will pursue. A prima-fnric case of misdemeanor in Office was made out against Mr. Kephart. This 1h an offense punishable by fine or Im prisonment. Whether the evidence avail able will convince a jury of his guilt cannot be known until It has been presented. It is worth while recalling, however, that fcuch of the testimony which points te a Blsdemeaner was admitted by Mr. Kephart himself or by his former subordinate In the Treasurer's office. He hns admitted juggling with the State funds, and he hns admitted methods of transacting the busi ness of the State which would net be tol erated In any private company. If he can bring forth evidence of justifi cation of his course that will convince a Jury, he will be exenerntcd. Whatever the outcome, the haling of Mr. Kephart Inte court te answer te the chnrges will mark a new stage In Pennsylvania politics. If Charles A. Snyder, the present State Treasurer, and Lieutenant Governer Beldle Ban should also be haled Inte court te explain their SSOOO "legal-fee" transaction It might be said that we had entered en a Bew era. It was supposed that thetrlal of Senater Quay for juggling with State funds for his personal profit had brought this practice te fen end. It was supposed also that the risks which these who treated the public money as a fund which they might use te their own profit se long as the State Inst nothing, or se long as It lest only the In terest en it, had become se great that no one would take It. Quay would have steed reed chance of going te prison but for the protection of the stntute of limitations. But en the face of the evidence the lessen of the Quay scandal has been lest en the littler men. The District Attorney of Dauphin County cannot afford te treat the case of Kephart flippantly, nor te engage in it perfunctorily, as though he thought it were a disagreeable task that he had te perform In response te popular clamor. THE FAIR AND PUBLIC FEARS THE sensitiveness of many Phlladelphlans regarding the possible cost of the Sesqul Centennlal Is acute. "With the exception of some Individuals who have net hesitated te voice their dis approval of the entire project, the com munity as a whole is in favor of the under taking. This approbation may in a sense be static, but that it is deep-rooted is a tact that can scarcely be disputed. Let Mr. D'Olier announce that the fair la net te be held and then observe the in dignant uproar. It is generally realized that backsliding after the congressional and presidential Indersement of the enterprise Would be disgraceful. And yet the mere mention of finances ln rariably promotes a veritable epidemic of cold shivers. Mayer Moere estimates the cost of the fair at $40,000,000. The tendency te be appalled at such a prospect cannot be tlenied. In consequence the Scwjui-Centennlal presents many of the attributes of a mad dening paradox. It is desired. It cannot be had for nothing. The thought of pay ment en an appropriately vast wale is pro foundly depressing. Speeches arc made, banquetfi are held, but the undertaking re mains unreal. Phlladelphlans who desire the fair muBt son make a choice. Mr. D'Olier is very properly considering the financial obligation. If it is possible for the public te note his Endings without becoming panicky, progress may be anticipated. But there Is net much te be said for a community which, having originated the exposition Idea, Is afraid of Ma own self-imposed duties. THE INJUNCTION CASE MUCH of the discussion of the rail strike Injunction, argument en which began In Chicago yesterday, Is based en a alaapprehenslen of the facts. Fer example, It has been said many times face Judge Wllkersen granted the tem porary Injunction that his order was Issued la rlolatlen of the antl-lnjunctlen pro pre pro VBrieni of the Clayten act. It Is worth while recalling that the Clayten act limits the use of the injunction In disputes between employers and em pleyes, and between empleyes themselves and between empleyes and strike-breakers. It does net limit the use of the Injunction la a dispute between the Government of the United States and the strikers. The Injunction was sought by the Gov ernment in the performance of Its functions M a government. This seems te have been forgotten, net only by some of the laymen asacusslng the subject, but even by some of tJBB lawyers for the strikers. It is worth while recalling also that the . Clayten act specifically exempts the United ' rfftd &VJratea Government from the limitations wlfleh It places en the court In punishing ts tfceee guilty of contempt in violating ln- 'i$r jBfectlens.

KIPLING TALKS ONCE MORE FOR THE HEATHEN TRIBES He Mourns for the Teries and for a World of Foolish Delusions Swept Away In the War TjlVElU'BODY knew that Mr. Kipling LJ would say It sooner or later. Se Senater Ilerah and the New Yerk World, rearing In unison even as the liens of the wilderness because the First Minstrel of armed Teryism accuses us of entering the war late and quitting it early and taking "all the world's geld," cause one merely te yearn for the day when America will be grown up and sophisticated. "If this is the view of England," rumbles Mr. Berah, "and Kipling has been called the voice of the English soul!" The voice of England! The voice of England, like the elre of France and Bel glum and Italy, hasn't been heard since the weary armies cheered for the armistice. At that hour the politicians and the poets and the profiteers and the propagandists left their clubs and came te th front and -....w ic jicuyjrs wne wen tne war as if they had been hired supers in an awful play. It was In England that the tragedy of that occasion was strangest. Fer the group that most efficiently mis represents England, Mr. Kipling, next te the editor of the Londen Morning Pest, was the most distinguished voice. He always had odd and dangerous delusions. He believed that The Englishman Who Dresses for Dinner and Talks Hudely te the Servants, as differentiated and set apart from all ether Englishmen, was exclusively and by predestination the savior of the earth and the deer of the will of Ged. Oddly enough, or naturally enough, ns you will have it, the Englishmen Who Dress for Dinner and Talk Rudely te Servants didn't greatly like Mr. Kipling. They have many admirable characteristics nnd they are by no means the insufferable let that he made them appear. They, who were glorified as snobs, rather disliked Mr. Kipling. They said his stuff smelt of flunkyism. In the generation that has just ended war was the favorite diversion of Old World aristocrats. Kipling sang of guns in n high, ecstatic voice. Hew many lonesome Temmies had te be slaughtered away from home, hew many white regiments had te be sacrificed, hew many black and brown men had te be slain te keep his bloodthirsty muse in huinet, no one will ever knew. But a very strange thing happened. The guns that Mr. Kipling had helped te bring nearer and nearer te England thundered at his very deer and one of his own sons was slain. Since then the laureate of British militarism has been filling his world with sounds net of gay triumph, but of recrimi nation and bewildering grief. It Is easy te sympathize with Kipling the poet without falling te recognize the monstrous deficiencies of Kipling the re porter. As he passed most of his life in India and sensed nothing of the spiritual lnsurgence that brought Gandhi as an omen of endless trouble and retribution; ns he was In Russia and felt none of the ground swells of oncoming revolution, and as he was In the United Stntes and learned nothing of our Instinctive hatred of the organized Insanities of European politics, se he was in the midst of the war and the peace without knowledge of ruling facts or an ability te perceive them. If we were "two years and seven months late" in the war, we were at least In time te save Britain and the British armies. Am! 'hose two years and seven months were, or should have been, a period of terrible revelation for Mr. Kipling. All the youth ful life of Britain, all the treasure of the empire, all the energies of a brave and great-spirited people, were dedicated te the task of demonstrating that the Englishman Who Dresses for Dinner and Talks Itudely te the Servants could be, unaided, a master of human destiny. Most of this expenditure was waste. The British bled nnd spent and borrowed and endured matchless ngeny for years before the legend which Kipling helped te create could be broken down and before the war was organized for victory rather than for the defense of decaying social and political traditions of the nation. Nowhere In the lands of the heathen could Mr. Kipling have seen se barbarous, se wild a sacrlflce as was demanded from the people of Britain by the vanity of stupid but socially exalted ruling groups. The horror was brought te an end only when the war seemed almost lest. The England That nad Ne Voice Is new in n llfe-and-death struggle te survive the misdeeds of the England That Had. There are still In England a few people, nnd Kipling Ib one of them, who believe that we should have thrown in our own llfebloed and our own treasure te sustain the ro mantic tradition that gave the destinies of the world for a time into the hands of men chosen for their names and their clubs rather than for their talents and te keep alive the superstition of the divine rights nnd privileges of a vanishing tribe of Teries. But the English as a people aren't fooled, even by Kipling. He fooled them tee often In the past. They knew, as Kipling doesn't, that it was Fech, rather than Pershing or Wilsen, who stepped the fight ing and refused te let It go en after the Germans had accepted the terms of peace. Fech said he didn't want any mere massed murder. The French didn't want addi tional areas of their country needlessly devastated. The Germans were prostrate nnd 'disarmed. But the guns were silenced and Mr, Kipling doubtless was ill at ease. Obviously he knows nothing of the finances of the war and It matters, nothing te him that we ergcd from the struggle .Jfe EVENING PUBLIC with empty nnd clenti hands, while all Old World diplomatists were In an orgy of loot, and Curzon was scheming te pocket Persia, The England That Has Ne Voice knows well enough. That is why an enormous canvas painted by Jehn Sargeht with llfo llfe slzc portraits of about sixty British gen erals and hung In the National Gallery has been renamed by the multitude and called "Why It Toek Us Se Leng te Win the War." These generals, or most of them, be longed te Kipling's own assemblage of deities. The picture well might bear an other name. It might be called "One of the Reasons Why America Waited." HIS OWN APOLOGIST GEORGES CLEMENCEAU begs leave te explain. It Is emphasized in Paris by friends of the former Premier that his projected visit te the United States Is en tirely unofficial,' te be conducted solely en his own responsibility and with a view te clenrlng up what the French feel te be mis understandings nnd misinterpretations of their nation. It mny be anticipated that the old and In defatigable statesman will prove an attrac tive npoleglst. Te begin with, his cemmnnd of English Is fluent nnd he will thus be free from the formidable handicap which se embarrassed Arlstlde Briand and Rene Vlvlanl. In addition, Clcmcncenu Is n star witness. Many points, though by no means all, of the Treaty of Versailles reflect his per sonality nnd his principles. He will be privileged te speak with authority upon numerous situations which, despite the flood of writing nbeut the peace conference, are in need of further elucidation. Whejthcr or net his campaign Is success ful, ltt;ls Impossible net te admire the vet eran lender for the vigor of his Initiative and the intensity of his convictions. Many Americans have found difficulty In reconciling their previous opinions of France with her alleged imperialistic and militaristic pretensions of the present. But this docs net necessarily Imply that the popular belief here Is sound. Fer one thing, the situation In France is much less simple than It appears from a dlst.nce. Geerges Clemenccau Is a maste'. of keen analysis nnd the tireless fee of glittering clap-trap phrases and saponaceous homilies. He may be expected te give e-.pllclt refer ences for some of his contentions. Information of this kind Is seriously needed In the United Stntes. Briand and Vlvlanl were orators with the defects of their glowing qualities. It Is needless te disguise the fact that their impassioned outpourings in n tongue strange te the vnst majority of Americans was mere of a detri ment than an advantage te n sympathetic comprehension of the French viewpoint. It is characteristic of Clemenccau that he can be categorical without losing his Umper or taking refuge in unconvincing sentiment. The opportunity te display his unique Rifts te the full will unquestionably be provided in his self-imposed mission. A GREAT PAINTING THERE Is nowhere n collector or con noisseur of pictures who would net be thrilled te the heart nt the mere thought of pessesing Rembrandt's "Devcnt Frem the Cress," the painting that Jeseph E. Widencr hns just added te his extraor dinary collection. The historical value of the canvas Is great. Its actual money value is hard te cstimnte. Yet there ere ether and for different reasons why a collector should seek and cherish it. "The Descent Frem the Cress" is one of the most beautiful of existing reminders of what you might call the Age of Faith and one of the noblest pictures among these that remain from the golden nge of pnintlng. That was an age when the spiritual quality of a canvas meant mere te the artist nnd te the patron than brilliancy of technique or fents of drnftsmnnshlp. Artists uncon sciously reflect the spirit of their times. Of even the most ambitious pictures "done" nowadays it may be snld that exterior bril liancy is their greatest characteristic. It has been at least twenty years since any great American artists attempted te paint a great religious picture. Ab the thought of the age is going, it may be that no great religious pictures will ever again be painted either here or in Europe. The old masters of painting, when they attempted te translate in color the meaning of any incident in religious history, ap proached their subject In moods of profound feeling nnd complete reverence. They were moved by faith. And it is this quality of the human spirit that remains today like n dim light shining through canvases' other wise without distinction. Rembrandt's pic ture is fulf of pity and reverence. It revcnls net only suffering, but the sorrow of the beholder himbelf. It Is without question one of the most vnlunble paintings in the world, nnd the city which ultimately may own the picture ought te share temethlng of the satisfaction nnd pride which Mr. Wldener experienced In gaining possession of It. BEWARE OF SUGAR BUNK A CONCERTED nttempt can be looked for shortly te create the Impression thnt Congress by increasing the tariff en sugar la justifying n big increase In the price te the consumers. But a disclosure of the facts ought te make It difficult te gouge the public In this way. Conditions de net justify any great in crease In the price, even though the pro posed tariff of $1.7e n hundred pounds en Cuban sugar should prevail. The present tariff is nbeut $1.25 a hundred peurfds. The proposed incrense will nmeunt te net mere than an increase of half a cent n pound. If thin should become three quarters of a cent In the retail mnrket It would be all that the conditions can rea sonably justify. That some tariff en sugar Is neressery both for purposes of revenue and for pur poses of protection of the domestic sugar producers Is almost universally admitted. The Democrats, who were opposed te a sugar tariff and provided for its abandon ment, hnd te chnnge their plnns before the date for free sugar arrived. They would have deprived the Government of greatly needed revenues if they had persisted in their erlglnnl purpose. The Government Is in grentcr need of revenue today than It wns when the Democratic Congress re pealed the free sugar previsions of the Act of 101T1. And If the beet sugar industry is te be preserved It must be protected by an adequate duty en competing enne sugar. But this duty never has bcen sufficient te wnrrnnt exorbitant retail prices for enne sugar, and the duty new proposed docs net justify any Increase of two or three cents n pound In the grocery stores.

This hns long been the predic tion of these Interested In the conquest of the nlr, and the lieutenant's ncceinpllshmeat of the trip at his own expense is graphic proof of Its possibilities In the use of the Postoffice Department ns well ns In the actual tarrying of pnsscngcrs. The spanning of the continent by airplane wns once the goal of all aviators, but their clnlm thnt It was possible was cause for pub lic ridicule en nil sides. Fer several years new, however, it hns been no unheard-of thing for men te go from the Atlantic te the Pacific by airplane, though none of them lias nttempted te make it with only one step, as Lieutennnt Doellttlc did. The death en Wednesday of Lieutenant Mnynard, the "Flying Parson," ngnln emphasizes this matter of trans-centinental flying, for it was Lieutenant Mnynard who wen the army flight across the continent Just two years age. BUT these flights of tedny seem far less romantic than the first one made, eleven years age, by Calbralth P. Redgers. Redgcrs' trip would be laughed at today, but In 1011 It wns nn epoch-making event, even though he took from September 17 te December 10 te accomplish It. Alrnlancs In these dnvs were vastlv dif ferent from the stanch and efficient ma chines thnt are flown today. The Wright blplnne which Redgers used was a mnrvel for its time, but it could net be depended upon for nny sustained effort, nnd Redgers' flight resolved itself merely Inte a series of short jumps, many of them ending in break age of some kind or ether. In fact, when the trip' was finally com pleted and the enthusiastic thousands of spectators en the California beach pushed the biplane, down until its wheels were lapped by the waters of the Pacific, the vertical rudder and the drip-pan under the engine were the only two parts of the origi nal machine that were left. Koegcrs letc Mticepsucnd Hay, IS. 1.. en Sunday, September 17, 1011, nnd managed te make eighty-four miles en his first flight, but crashed into a tree when he landed nt Mlddletewn, N. Y., nnd wbb held up for repairs. He was under way again en September 21 and mnde flights en the 21st, 22d. 23d nnd 24th, but en the last date, after he had landed ntn little place calcd Red Heuse, near James, town, N. Y., he again met disaster. He had been having trouble with his spark plugs and enme down te adjust them. With every thing in working order he tried te take off ag.iln. but just as he was lifting from the ground a cress wind cnught him and carKl him sideways into a barbed wire fence. Beth of his propellers were smnshed nnd one wing of his machine wns badly damaged. New parts were promptly sent te him and he was able te resume en September 23, when he reached Kent, O., 040 miles from his starting point. Again repairs were necessary, but he did a little better than 200 miles en September 30, nnd ndded thlrty-slx miles te that en October 1, when he was again held up by a miner accident. ON OCTOBER 5 he managed te reach Hammend, Ind., putting just ever 1000 miles behind him. This in Itself was re markable enough In these days nnd made the bceffcrs renllze that n bcrieus attempt was at last being made te accomplish the Impossible flight te the Pacific. At the snmc time another aviator, Rebert G. Fowler, was trying the trans-centinental from the Pacific te the Atlantic, nnd was meeting with se many disasters and failed se often In his attempts te cress some of the Western mountains that the general public freely predicted thnt Redgcrs would meet the same fate when he get far enough te the westward te be confronted by the necessity of higher altitude. Redgcrs, however, continued confidently and managed te make flights en the 8th, 0th, 10th nnd 11th, when he was again de layed nnd had te make repairs. Frem then en, however, his luck appar ently chnnged, nnd he missed only a few days until November f. Thnt date brought him a triumphant welcome when he landed nt Pasadena, Cnllf., giving him n total dls dls tance of mere than 4000 miles te hix final geul, which, acerdlng te his contract, was te be at Leng Bench, Calif. Ills elapsed time te Pasadena was forty nine days, and the actual time in the nlr figured out nt three days ten hours and four minutes, with nn average speed of llfty-ene iniles nn hour. Doellttle averaged 101 miles an hour Inst week. Redgcrs' longest single flight wan from Sanderson te Sierra Blanca, Tex., when he covered 231 miles. WITH se little dlstnnce separating Rod Red gers from his goal, the whole country wns ready te proclaim him n here when he fin ished the final twelve miles of this record breaking trip. He wns held up nt Pasadena for some time for repairs nnd for a visit te Ills mother, who had gene out te welcome him, but en November 12, with n great send-off from the crowds at Pasadena, he again took the nir. It was noticed as he rose thnt his engine was missing, and he enmc down within the city limits of Les Angeles te make repairs. Knewing that there were thousands nt the shore resort waiting for him, he hurried through his work ns rapidly os possible nnd once mere started westward. He hnd hardly get ahead of the automobile following him when about a mile south of Compten he wns seen te come down until he was within 200 feet of the earth, when suddenly something went wrong with the muchine and he crashed te the ground. Redgcrs was picked up by a passing farmer, who hurried him te the nearest doc tor, and it was feared for some time that his Injuries would prove fatal. His mnchlne was totally smashed with the exception of the rudder and the drip-pan, nnd these were rebcued by seme enthusiasts who did net knew hew seriously Redgers was hurt, but who felt that It would be fitting nt least te Imve borne parts of the original machine reach the goal for which the aviator had struggled se hard. Redgers fought his ny gradually back te health, and en December 10. shortly nftcr 4 o'clock In the afternoon, with 00,000 per sons crowding the sands of Leng Bench, he landed en the shore and the enthusiastic mob surged in upon him nnd pushed the machine into the waters of the Pacific Ocean. Calbralth Redgcrs was a Muryland boy wheBe home wns In Havre de Grace, but Pennsylvania claimed part of his honor be cause he had been n football player for Mcrcersburg Academy. RODGERS was never considered n rcnlly geed avlnter. That Is te say, he wns unable te compete with ether aviators of bis day nt exhibitions or fairs, nor was he a winner of prizes nt aviation meets. His hearing wns defective and. according te the theory of aviators nt that time, no man with defective hearing could have the per fect senbe of balance required for nn expert aviator. Redgers' whole career bore out this theory nnd he probably smashed mere often than any ether flier of his time. It was only his dogged persistence nnd his refusal te own himself beaten thnt let him accomplish the one thing which entitled him te n place in the Aeronautical Hall of Fume. Redgers' lack of balance cost him his f only u few months later at Leng Bench. He wns making nn exhibition flight en April 3 when he lest control of his machine 200 feet In the nlr nnd crashed te the wind at (he edge of the surf within a few feet of thti Bpet where he hnd landed he triumphantly In December nnd where the people of the Califerniu resort planned te erect a monu ment In memory of his trans-centlncntal flight.

NOW MY IDEA IS THIS! Daily Talks With Thinking Philadelphia en Subjects They Knew Best REV. DR. LOUIS C. WA8HBURN On Philadelphia's Hopes at Portland Convention PHILADELPHIA churchmen have keen . Interest In the outcome of the general nMvn,.tien nt the FnlRcntinl Church, new In 'session nt Portland, Ore., according te the Rev. Dr. Leuis O. Washburn, rector ei Old Christ Church of this city, one of the eldest nnd perhaps the most distinguished historically of the parishes of the United States. "We expect far-reaching results te come from the convention in Portland." snld Dr. Washburn. "We nre in a critical time in se for as the state of the country nnd, indeed, of the whole world is concerned. "The notable advance nttnlncd during the Inst trlennium is te be accelerated, lhc reorganization of the central administration has fully justified itself, and mere of the pcople have given mero of their devotion nnd means for the extension of the Kingdom of Ged than during any similar preceding period. The hands of the Executive Council will be steadied nnd the vnrieus departments will be given substantial impetus, se that churchmen far and nenr may threw them selves with yet freer confidence into the program for mnlring the contribution of the Church te the life of the tlmcB mere vital and mere penetrating. "Seme of us locally may be concerned te have the convention decide te held the next scbsien In Philadelphia. Our diocesan con cen con ventlen, held in May. instructed its dcle gjites te present Mich nn Invitation. e shnll net be nlone in this matter, for ether Eastern cities are competing for the honor. "It has new been forty years since the deputies assembled in the place where the formative meetings of the Church in this ceuntrv were held. There would be n time liness In welcoming them in 1025. whetting their appetites for the Scsqul-Centcnnlnl of the following year. "Nevertheless, it must he admitted that a local lack which may send the next gen eral convention te home ether city is the absence of a fitting convention hall In Phila delphia suitable for such a body. The New Bishopric Selection "Particular Interest attaches te the prob able nppelntment of new Bishops for the missionary field nnd of new officers In the administration center. While the party spirit never wholly disappears in ecclesi astical groups, yet it seems true te say thnt at the present time it counts for less than In nny preceding convention. "ChriBtlnn men nre everywhere realizing 'the great danger we ure in through our unhappy divisions,' and are eager te have all these who confess Ged's holy name live in unity nnd godly love in order that they mny mere effectively leaven human life. "This underlying subject will call for con structive handling, as a number of the re ports te be considered will be based upon it; the Commission of Faith and Order, the Joint Commission of Christian Unity, -these te whom was referred the se-called Con cordat and these who will recommend closer relations with the Eastern Orthodox churches. . ... , "These and ethern will give nraple. op portunity for the concrete exposition of the significant sentiment of fraternity which one of the Bishops hns voiced when he declared that 'one discredits his own religion when he attacks that of another und honors net another's religion by indifference te his own' ; a conviction which another Bishop has emphasized by challenging us te substi tute for controversy the habit of private and corporate prnyer for Ged's blessing and guidance en these Christian bodies who nre least in nccerd with our own predilections.
