Some I'foplc simply can't take a warning. And yet they 1 iut know from the experience of Mr. Rocke icller and Mr. Carnegie that to give millions for the public benefit is to invite suspicion and trouble. Those English newspapers which criticised so I archly the quality of some of the supplies sent to 1 uropc on the Christmas ship Jason showed poor taste and little judgment The Jason carried a huge cargo, contributed from all parts of this country. It was, of course, quite impossible for those who supervised the loading of the ship o make a careful examination of all the contribu tions, and it wa to be expected that some things of very little vain would be sent bv persons who were led to believe through the stories of suffering and distress abroad that anything would he welcome. 'I here is no disputing the fact, however, that the lason carried a generous cargo of clothing and provisions that helped greatly in relieving poverty and want. Criticism of such of the gifts that could not be put to good use might well have been spared Calling attention to the various estimates of $1,000,000,000 trade balance in favor of the United States in 1015, James A Farrell said: "The years of greatest prosperity in the United States have been when the balances were largely in our favor. It is not imprudent to predict that our total farm values for the current vcar, for the first time in the annals of this or anv other country, will pass the ten billion mark I feel safe in saying that if you will strain a point just now and trade a little more with each other and talk encouraging ly as to conditions, rather than pessimistically, the business of the country will take on a momentum whi-h will carry us into better times, and, what is more important, create more employment for labor " Indications point unmistakably to a profit able year for American industries. Our enormous exports now include various factory products re quiring the employment of labor, and it is impos sible not to see a steady decrease in the number of unemployed. Mr. Farrell's suggestion, if fol lowed by employers and business men generally, should hasten the days of prosperity. One of the signs of improving business is that the new capital issues of last month were $127,- 000,000, which was more than the amount in any previous month since the beginning of the war, and the decrease from a year ago is only $3,000,000. a -trifling contraction. The railroad capital raised last month was $4,000,000 greater than the amount in January, 1914. In railroad securities there was a great increase in -bonds and notes and a great decrease in shares, indicative of less confidence than a year ago. Another encouraging symptom is that the Illinois Central Railroad has ordered i.oo.ooo worth of locomotives. Philadelphia Kccord. Pipe Dream of an Aristocracy. The Massachusetts legislature is considering a bill to prohibit smoking in public in public parks, on the public streets, in waiting rooms, in any part of hotels open to the public or in public conveyances. The proposed penalty is a fine of $25 and imprisonment for not less than ten days. The late Senator Hoar, in his devotion to Massa chusetts, insisted that the alleged Blue Laws of the colony never existed; in fact, were invented by the enemies of the Puritans, and were a slander on the great Commonwealth which the Puritans founded. But the purification bug seems to have struck the Massachusetts legislature so hard that it would make the Puritans wonder if the Blue Laws were anything to be ashamed of in the light of modern development. This proposed statute for Massachusetts is no mere coov of a Kansas law against cigarettes. It Children and War. By JOHN D. BARRY.

One morning In 1S3I, at a time when Richard Mansfield was making his first great success as an actor In a play en titled "Beau Brummell," I breakfasted with him and afterward scent the fore noon In his company at his apartments. These were the entire top floor of an apartment house which stood directly op posite Delmonlco's restaurant in Broad way which was some years ago torn down to make room for a great offtre building Mr. Mansfield showed me his 1. . .1 -. -:..:. .I., hoc nnt liolrl n! a i show his appreciation.

Beans having been classed as a universal, cheap food product by the Department of Agriculture, must give way to some luxury, and tobacco is to be prohibited to the man who has no private study. There is, however, danger in such legislation. It will be remembered that William the Testy, when governor of New York 111 the early days of the colony, made a law against smoking, and the old Dutch burgers loaded their biggest pipes with their strongest tobacco, and smoked him into a compromise, bv which he confined the prohibition to the long pipes of the auter Van Twiller regime. We have thc authority of the Knicker bocker History of Xew York, that this compro mise developed thc great pipe plot, and the di vision of the people into political parties. There were the Long Pipes, or aristocratic stand patters, the Short Pipes, or democrats, and the Quids, who were thc first mugwumps, who took a middle ground and chewed So may the people of Massachusetts be further divided in their politics, nd another Boston party headed by former Mayor Fitzgerald dump this prohibition into the bay. There are so many short pipes in Boston that it is a serious question whether thc town can ever again be made ex clusive, bv trying to prohibit smoking in public Remember. "She 1- on the brink of her most momentous blunder a war with the United Stres of Amer ica." Xew York Herald. Thc Herald refers to Germany and "Germany's attempt to terrorize neutral commerce going to F.ngland " It justihcs its warning by recalling that the signal for our civil war was the firing on thc Star of the West, laden with supplies for Fort Sumter, and that war with Spain was made inevitable bv thc sinking of the Maine. Suppose, asks the Herald, German submarines "ran amuck l.kc a mad Malay and destroyed the ships and crews ot ,an neutral, would Germany not then have lo reckon with that neutral as an enemy'" Remember thc Star of thc West' Remember the Maine' The warning well may startle the people- of this country out of their dozing in fancied security from thc strife of Kurope, but it is for Germany to hcid it. Let any one call it premature if he wills. It is well to be premature; it will be too late when an American ship or a ship with Ameri cans on board is sunk.

Toledo. Ohio. Feb 9 The German Better Leave It to the President About thc time that President Wilson was ex plaining cstcrday that action by Congress could not control the use of the American flag by foreign ships, and that restrictions on such practices would have to come through international agreement, Representative Martin, of South Dakpta, introduced a bill in thc House intended to do the very thing President Wilson says cannot be done by legisla tion. Mr. Martin's measure would make it unlawful for ships of foreign nations to fly thc American flag "for the purpose of disguising the nationality of the vessel or for the purpose of making it appear to be a vessel of the United States or of LInited States register." It proposes a fine of from $10,000 to $100, 000 and confiscation of the ship as a penalty. Just now it would be well for ambitious statesmen to leave such matters to the President and his advisers. Addressing John D. Rockefeller, jr.'s Sunday school class in New York Andrew Carnegie said: "The Lord won't punish us for the little pecca dilloes which we call sins. Hell take them and rub them out I'm doing that Jike 'Billy' Sunday. I have seen his pictures. I have not been to hear him and I don't want to go."

Optimism has been in the air in the past few weeks. The Pennsylvania's financing is a sign of better times not "in the air," but in substance. In 1908 the Pennsylvania sold $40,000,000 forty-year 4 per cent bonds secured by this same consoli dated mortgage, and shattered the apparently in destructible pall that was confining American finance. By so doing the Pennsylvania started the ball of prosperity rolling for three mighty good years. The consolidated 4 sold'in 1008 were many times oversubscribed at 96, at which price the in vestor got a yield of approximately 4-20 P" cent. If the present issue of Vs had been sold to give the same yield the offering price Would have been about 106. In 1008 a simultaneous offering was made in the United States and in England. At that time the New York Central and the Lake Shore were financing theirjiceds with short-terra note. Today the new cttisolidated New York Central Railroad is planning permanent financing.
