Some Social Problems of
"The City's Recruiting
Station."
Or T. I.. Hl.VCKLEY.
(Westchester Cbuntr Bewirch Bureau. e York.,
'We are bringing io light such a a3t
and strange assemblage of social and
political facts that e are apt to stare
at ourselves and say, "Is this the way
no really 11 e? Is that what our na
tional life really is!"
Until recentlj tve have been .like os
trichesblind to criticism and secure In
our illusion that our national sjstera
nas the greatest and our national life
the best in the world. Our cities, long
our shame, were the first to get out of
the "ostrich" class They have become
pioneers in a determined fight for a bet
ter, cleaner, and more efficient national
life.
There is another type of communlt),
outnumbering our. cities probably ten to
one. which until now has been hidden
In the general social and economic hin
terlandthe village. Who has thought
about our village? Of what significance
are thej T Should they be " reformed.
and. if so, how?
In the lllage the physical set-up is
usually cVfectlve. Streets are but par
tially, often improperly, paed, and there
is no street plan. Buildings are only
half "kept up " Rotten tenements may
usually be found in Ullages, and tjpical
East Side" living conditions Sewers
are apt to be defective, and sanitary"
conveniences are often decidedly insani
tary Population Is congested along
Main Street" and sparse In the rest of
the village. In contrast with English
and European -villages, the American
village Is often poorly articulated, even
slabsldcd. It lacks coherence and Indi
vidual! tj.
" lllaee Defecta 3Innr.
Among the Fpeciflc weak points in the
administration of village finance are the
following. Bonding in excess of ability
to redeem without refunding, bonding
for a longer term than the Improvement
warrants, falling to estimate correctly
for a ear's administrative programme,
granting disadvantageous franchisee,
due to personal Influence or to the general
lack of corporate back bone."
Naturalb fitted for the well-nigh per
fect health of Its Inhabitants, ne find
in many villages the most startling par
allels or urban defects Infant mortality
Is usually high: contagious disease cases
are apt to run Into three figures: the
water supply Is usually poorly protected
against pollution, milk Is general! unan
alzed. nor Is there any routine sanitary
Inspection of food and food shops, health
records and reports are frequently In a
most uncertain and Incomplete state;
nuisances often go for a long time with
out abatement.
Another element which Is strong In
vtlages because people are Intimate and
perorallt takes precedence over funt
tion Is a disposition to be "easy" on a
popular offender against the sanitary reg
ulations, to hold back disease reports to
central authorities because It might
hurt somebody's business "
Village social life Is apt to be at a low
ebb, the saloon is too often the most
potent social Influence. Recreation facil
ities, as known In cities, are largely ab
sent, and the doubtful moving picture
show Is wont to monopolize the leisure
rime of the jouth.
The following Is put forward as a tenta
tive programme for village betterment:
Congress of Religious Liberals
Meets in Paris Next Month
A party of 150 delegates, chiefly re
cruited In the neighborhood of Boston,
will sail on July 1 on the Arabic from
Boston and the Teutonic from Montreal
for England and the Continent of Eu
rope to attend the sixth international
congress of Free and Progressive vnns-
tians and Other Religious Liberals, to
be held at Paris July 16-S.
This congress was organized at Bos
ton in 19oO Its purpose Is "to open com
munication with those in all lands who
are striving to unite pure religion and
perfect liberty, and to Increase fellow -sh'p
and co-operallon among them " It
seems to bring into closer union for
exchange of Ideas, mutual service, and
the promotion or their common alms tne
historic libera; churches, the liberal ele
ments In all churches, scattered liberal
congregations, fend Isolated workers for
religious freedom and progress in many
lands. Some 100 religious asociatlons In
twenty-five countries of the world are
now affiliated with the congress, send
official delegates to its meeting", and
make It the international organ of their
fraternal relations with each otner Its
congresses have been held at London,
Amterdam. Geneva. Boston, and Berlin,
and Its proceedings and papers have
been published In five volumes.
The organizer of the meetings at Paris,
which will be held In the halls of the
National Horticultural Society, Rue de
Grenelle, Is Rev. Charles w. vvenate,
foreign secretary of the American Uni
tarian Association, who since its incep
tion. In 1900, has been the general secre
tary of the congress.
The Paris meetings will be under the
presidency of the eminent Krench phil
osopher and member of the Institute,
Prof. Emlle Boutroux. Pastor Charles
"Wagner, of Paris, so well known as a
preacher and author, is vice president of
the congress. There Is a long list of
honorary vice presidents, representing
many different nations, among whom
may be mentioned Profs Adolf Harnack,
Paul babatler. Allan Menzles ana H.
Schmledel, Canons Cheyne and A. L.
Lille j. Revs. Stopford Brooke and R. J.
Campbell. Dean Charles R. Brown, Profs
E. C Moore and Daniel Lvans, Rabbi
Kaufman Kohler, Claude Montetlore.
Rabindranath Tagore. Abdul Baha, and
others.
Eminent speakers will be heard on
themes of vital Interest, among them
Prof. Rudolf Eucken and Henri Berg
son, who arc to treat of the mutual re
lations of philosophy and religion; Prors.
Rudolf Otto, of Goettlngen; Count Gob
let d'Alvlclla, of Brussels, and several
Oriental scholars, who are to discuss
the question of a universal religion: Rev.
Charles F. Dole. Rev. S A. Eliot. Dr.
Lee S Forbes, of Boston: Rabbi Stephen
S. WIe. of New York, and Prof. J.
Estlin Carpenter, of Oxford, on topics
of scholarly and human Interest.
An interesting feature of the congress
will be Its modernist aspect A dozen
prominent representatives of this phase
of opinion in Roman Catholic circles will
participate, among them Mia Maude
Petre. the biographer of Father Tyrell;
Prof. 'Joseph Schnltzer, of Munich; Rev.
William Sullivan, of New Tork; Don
Romolo Muni, of Rome; Prof. Angelo
Crespl, of Florence: Prof. Paul Sabatier,
of France: Profs. Caudelter. of Brussels,
and Van Heen, of Holland, and the Old
Catholic Dean MIchaud. of Berne.
Other topics are: "The .Social Ideals of
Free Christianity," "The Relations Be
tween Christians and Non-Christians," by
European and Oriental speakers, and
AND SOCIAL
The average village should have a good
engineer and architect go over the vil
lage with a view to adopting a "village
plan" of some sort. Time should be
taken by the forelock and roads cut, open
spaces laid out, building standards adopt
ed, &c. before the village becomes the
town and the town merges Into the city.
What crimes against municipal art and
beauty could have been saved this nation
by a few weeks even dajs of thoughtful
"village planning" when our cities were
joung!
Village administration Is a one-man Job,
If there ever was one. Get a. good village
cierk. pay him a decent salao, and let
him be at his desk all day long, every
day in the year. Half the inefficiency and
waste In village government Is due to
lafck of Information, following the "part
time evlL 'With a wide-awake, capable
administrative officer keeping the village,
books up to date and having a constant
eye on the community's affairs, the
chances for "steals," slipshod finance,
tc, will be reduced to a minimum.
The health problem In vlllagA is not
so much the framing of new health codes
or the adoption of the latest wrinkles In
jMbllc health work as it Is In the enforce
ment of such rules as do exist, with ad
dition of special regulations only where
they are actually needed Thus, the peri
odical testing of milk, the Inspection of
dairies and of food shops, sanitary dis
posal of garbage, and the screening of
stables can probably easily be "read '
Into the existing sanitary code. The do
ing away with cesspools and privies de
pends upon sewerage facilities, and must
be a step contingent upon the extension
cT'the drainage sstem.
Control In Recreation,
Above all. there must be Instilled Into
village an appreciation of the dangers
which neglect of sanitary precautions and
careless living brings to all per-ons of
all classes. The idea of the public health
standard as transcending the private
health standard must be developed, as
must likewise the habit of perfect and
absolute publicity of health facts. Health
maps, health lectures, bulletins, visits b
State authorities all are needed to as
sist In dispelling this portion of the gen
eral pall of v Ulage Inertia.
Sociall), the crvlng need of the village
la systemlzed, sane recreation. This is
required primarib as a counter-balancing
force against the village saloon. Athletic
fields and clubs, with contests free from
professionalism, are wanted here as no
where else. for. contrary to belief, the
nearness of the country does not appeal
to the average village youth, as he has
the delusion of sophistication, and is more
likely to haunt the poolroom than to ex
plore the rural bwa)s In his spare hours
Recreation centers free from sectarian
Influence are badly needed, and most of
all a "live' supervisor who can show
people how to amuse themselves A mu
nicipal moving picture show offers in
many particulars the best solution of the
"afternoon and evening" problem.
In conclusion, the village problem of
fers one further suggestion Cannot the
State organize its villages, stir them into
active life, make them keep awake, clean
and efficient' Cannot each commonwealth
"standardize" village improvement in all
particulars create a "village reference

village Is the recruiting station for the
city, the earlier the. State teaches its
citizens the modern lessons of efficient
and enlightened self-goverment and pro
gressive social action, the easier will be
the task when the larger units of gov
ernment are concerned And the gain will
be that of all the citizens of the State,
even those of the entire nation.
"Universal Peace and International Good
Will," by David Starr Jordan, Rev.
Charles Wagner and German and French
speakers. The last-named question will
be dealt with at the church of Pastor
Wagner on Sunday evening, July 30
The congress sermon on Mlcah vL, ?,
will be preached at the Protestant Church
of the Oratolre, and will have a truly
international character, since It will be
delivered In three languages, French,
German, and English, by three different
divines. The English preacher will be
Rev. Frederick A Bisbee, of Boston, edi
tor of the Unlversallst Leader.
The week In Paris will Include various
other features of interest, including the
dedication of a monument to the lat
Father Hyaclnthe Loyson in Pere
Lachaise Cemetery, the laying of a
wreath on the statue of Admiral Collgny
by descendants of the Huguenots among
the foreign delegates, a banquet and vari
ous excursions, and a special performance
of "The Huguenots" at the Grand Opera.
In London, too, the American delegates
are to be shown special courtesies. In
cluding a banquet at the Royal Automo
bile Club After the Paris meetings they
will separate Into smaller parties, visit
ing Germany, Holland, Switzerland, and
Italy, while a section will tour In Brit
tany and Spain
ACTOR'S CHUBCH ALLIANCE
HAS AN ACTIVE CHAPLAIN
Among churches which have boy choirs
the summer camp has become quite an
institution. St Mark's, Capitol Hill, St
John's, Georgetown, and the Church of
the Advent Sixth and I Streets North
east have all fine summer encampments
as annual events. The Advent choir.
Rev. Cornelius Abbot vicar, goes to
camp in August and with a view to
raising expenses the proceeds of the Sun
day school excursion to Marshall Hall,
which takes place June 3, will be de
voted to that purpose. The Sunday,
scnooi ot me Advent is one OI the few
schools which continues its work during
the entire summer, the vicar believing
that the work and the discipline of the
school are helped thereby. Mr. Abbot
is not very generous to himself In the
matter of holidays, hisown vacation
this year being a trip with the boys to
their encampment At present Mr. Abbot
is single-handed In his work, no suc
cessor having been appointed to the
place vacated by Rev. Mr. Christian, now
In St Paul's parish.

Recently the beautiful cloister that now
adds bo much to the appearance of the
west porch of St Paul's was finished as
a memorial to the memory ot sirs. Amelia
Garnet Bowie Harris. It was given by
Gen. and Mrs. Watmough. It Is really
wonderful what a difference the erection
of this addition makes In the appearance
of the church. The church plant looks
fully twice as large as It did before. And
now. since there Is such a large and con
venient space in which to greet the peo
ple, the clergy hope many of the congre
gation will give them an opportunity of
doing that for which tne cloister was
chiefly built that of giving the .clergy
and people greater opportunity of meet
ing each other.
Rev. F. E. and Mrs. McManus enter

their wives at dinner last week at the

NEWS AND COMMENT.
Very few New Torlc churches of
prominence will close this summer and
some of the few to do so have impera
tive reasons In the locating of new or
gans or other changes. At one time
It was contemplated to close tne rirtn
Avenue Presbyterian to put In two new
organs, but the plan was changed to
September, and the famous July and
August services will be maintained. The
Fifth Avenue Baptist and Madison
Avenue Reformed Churches will close,
but are almost the only ones to do so
for long periods. St Nicholas Reformed
Church will close during July, but ii)

order named: Revs. James I. Vance.
John Balcom Shaw, D. H. Martin, and
Russell H. Conwell, If the last named

Ulricas. At the Madison Avenue Baptist
Church Rev. J. Wilbur Chapman, the
evangelist will be the preacher for July
and August The Central Baptist Church
has closed because It is to be torn down
to make way for a new H00 000 edifice
on the site. Rutgers and Central Pres
byterian Churches close In August and
part of September. Many churches are
to be kept open with out-of-town preach
ers More are to maintain full sched
ules than for several years.
A large proportion of the Jwish rabbis
sjrvlng either permanent or holiday con
gregations In New York, the greatest
center of Hebrew people In the world,
were educated abroad. Many of them
cannot speak English, and do not take
the trouble to learn It Many years ago
Hebrew Union College. Cincinnati, and
later the Jewish Seminary, New York,
began efforts to turn out more and better
educated American rabbis The last
named Institution has Just closed Its
first ten years, and has graduated the
largest class yet sent out The number
was eleven, and in It are some scholars
of the first rank. Upon Hon. Mayer
Sulzberger, of Philadelphia, the eminent
publicist the seminary conferred the de
gree of doctor of Hebrew literature.
In his address to the students the presi
dent of the seminary. Rev. Solomon
Schechter, declared the time to have
come when American Jewry must raise
up some scholars If It Is not to descend
to the level of seminaries that are mere
sociological institutions, synagogues that
are nothing but settlements, and a Jewry
that Is. to use the presidents term,
"only a ranting sect" It Is educated
leaders In all religious bodies, according
to the learned rabbi, who give forth
ideas and hold up ideals, and none can
long live without both The projectors
of the New Tork Seminary report them
selves well pleased with the progress
made In the decade Just ended.
Vacation Bible schools during July and
August will be held In many cities, and
most of the colleges and seminaries In
the East will furnish teachers for them
from among their student body. Leaders
In the movement are Atlanta, Baltimore,
Boston. Chicago. Kansas City, New
York, where Is the head office; Philadel
phia. Pittsburg. Seattle, and Washing
ton. The alms are to take children off
hot streets In vacation time, to utilize
otherwle vacant parish houses to teach
Bible, sports, and Industrial handwork,
and to give young men and women now
In the colleges actual experience In
teaching boys and girls. There will be
at least 200 schools In existence during
July under the national movement and
as many more under Independent con
trol. It Is found that six weeks' Instruc
tion is possible at a cost of less than
Jl per child.
New features of the work this season
are a National School of Methods,
wherein teachers are trained, and which
held its sessions in April and May, and
prepared instructors for their work in
July and August and an exhibition of
handiwork of the children, the proceeds
from which go to Increase the number
of schools. Work made by children Is
returned to them after the exhibition.
Schools for colored children are intro
duced for the first time this season, and
greater emphasLs U laid upon Instruc
tion In English for children of foreign
born parents. Students of particular col
leges are. In steadily Increasing num
bers, contributing money to pay salaries
of one of their number, one who Is work
ing his or her way through college, to
teach In a school.
The Society for the Propagation of the
Faith, the one great foreign mission
agency of world Roman Catholics, re
ports receipts for 1912 of 11,610,000. a sum
larger by 1153,400 than In 1911. and the
largest In the history of the society. Of
thisnS5,axj increase, or more than half.
was sent by Catholics of the United
States. American Catholics contribute a
far larger sum than those of any other
country, France alone excepted- tlhe
sum last year was sjoo.wu, tne New YorK
Archdiocese sending 1151.900. Boston JW,
000; Philadelphia 1&000. Baltimore J7.S00,
and Chicago $5,700. French Catholics re
main the great resource of Catholic for
eign missions, giving last year KEl,3oa
Those of Germany gave $196,000. of ltalv
4.009. of Spain J4O.S00. and of Austria
J10.OTO. Ireland sent 5 700. and the South
American Catholics 174,000, almost all of
It going from the Argentine.
The amount of the contributions, stead
ily growing, seems to depend on educa
tion and system. The society's head
quarters are In Lyons, and French Cath
olics have been educated to give. On the
other hand, Italy's Catholics have not
been. It appears, and so famous Italian
dioceses are recorded as sending $39 and
ev en smaller sums. Rome Itself contributed-less
than $2,000 English Catholic
gave $20,000. However, In some of the
countries mentioned, foreign mission con
tributions go through the religious or
ders rather than through the Lyons So

of the Society for the Propagation of the
Faith Is its collection of money one year,
keeping It Intact and apportioning It out
to the mission fields for expeidlture the
next y ear. AH other societies receive and
expend the same year, hence their mis
calculations of receipts and consequent
frequent debts.
The Catholic Foreign Missionary Semi
nary, Just now establishing Itself on the
banks of the Hudson River, a short dis
tance above New York, announces the
opening of the first of its preparatory
schools. These schools, to cover the
whole country in time, will train young
men for foreign mission fields up to the
period of their special work, which later
will be done at the seminary. The first
ot these tributary schools Is located at
Scranton. and will be known as the Ven
ard Apostolic School. It will open In Sep
tember. The work of the preparatory
schools and seminary Is the furnishing
of American young men, as priests, fot
foreign missionary service In all parts of
the world Heretofore France and Spain
have furnished almost all of these work
ers. Efforts have been started within the
last few months to secure medical mis
sionaries for Catholic foreign fields. Med
ical missionary work bad Its beginning
In Edinburgh. Scotland, fifty years ag
and was for the poor of that city. It has
now spread to foreign fields everywhere
but Is wholly Protestant The attention
of the Vatican was some time ago called
to the necessity of Catholics taking on
medical work, and especially the supply
ing of women physicians and surgeons.
Led by Cardinal Merry' del Val. six or
ders, the Benedictine Sisters being first,
have now consented to train nuns for
medical work. A deputation of superiors
of orders has Just gone to India and
China to study conditions. It Is said to
be probable that the new Catholic For
eign Seminary here will soon add this
feature for Catholic American young men
bound for these fields.

DIGGING A" BIG CANAL.
New York ConatsmctlaB Immense
4 DUrh Across State.
from Leslie's Weekly.
Comparatively few persons have
given serious attention to th fact that
a great barge canal, at an estimated
most of $101,000,000, Is being construct
ed across Central and Weste-n New
York Stale.
This great walled-up waterway, with
Its locks, water gates, spillways, and
highway bridges, winds across the
State from the Hudson to Tonawanda.
giving access to the Old Erie Canal,
Oswego Canal, Lake Champlaln. St
Lawrence, and Great Lakes, opening a
grand highway from the seaboard and
the first city of the Union.
When one considers that the canal
extends, as the crow files. 353 5 miles
across the State, and. with the branches
to Lake Champlaln and Lake Ontario,
has a total length of 463 S miles, it will
be recognized as one of the largest
engineering feats In canal construc
tion, ranking second only to the Pan
ama Canal. There has been no end
of difficulties met with, such as quick
sands and floods, and frequently
bridges had to be built to make- the
work possible.
Proof of Ihe Geosrraphlenl Center.
From the Kinus City Times.
A point ten miles north of Smith Cen
ter Is found to be the exact geographical
center of the United States. Those who
have reached this point are able to prove
it by their Eskimo and by records buried
at Etah. and they are willing to appear
before the University of Copenhagen at
any time.
From Judsr.
"How did he raise the wind?"
"Well, he had a fine air to start with.
so he Just blustered a bit and blew about
his prospects.

The Tal-Sho Tenno Is the official name
of1 the Emperor of Japan. President Wil
son in his message of sympathy yester
day addressed the Emperor as Yoshihlto.
but this form of address la peculiar to
foreign usage. It was doubtless correct
In a message of this character, but tn
Japan the present Emperor Is always
known as the Tal-Sho Tenno.
The Emperor was born on August 31.
187$. He became Emperor on July 30, 131.
He was the third son of his father, his
brothers having died each In babyhood.
The present Emperor was proclaimed heir
apparent on August 3t 1SS7, and Crown
Prince on November 3, 1SSJ He was
married on May 10. 1300, to Princess Sad
ako, fourth daughter of the late Prince
Kujo. There are three sons of the union.
The Emperor when a child suffered
constantly with illness and when a
youth his health for a time was con
sidered to be in a very precarious state,
but his treatment by Dr. Erwln O. E.
von Baeiz. an eminent German who had
been appointed physician to the Imperial
household. Improved his condition to
such an extent that In later years, al
though far from robust he has been
spared the almost continuous sufferings
of his youth and younger manhood.

There Is a fault that la frequently com

It Is the words "double entendre." 1
