OH and Troubled Statesmen.
The following: from Austin, Texas, tells
a story of wide Interest:
"The representatives of the oil syndicates
of which former Governor J. S. Hogg and
former United States Senator Charles A.
Towne are at the h*ad arrived here today
to oppose the measure now bef ire the leg
islature which provides for a tax of 2 per
cent on the gross receipts of the oil pro
ducers of Texas. The Standard Oil Com
pany has also sent a lobby here to defeat
How startling It is to read that Messrs.
Hogg and Towne and the Standard Oil
Company have interests in common! What
would have been the fate of anybody pre
dicting such a thing ten months ago? Not
death, maybe, but denunciation of the warm
est possible description. For at that time both
of the gentlemen named were girding daily
at every form of trust and corporation, and
den anding that Congress and the state leg
islatures attend to the interests of. the peo
ple as against their wiles and encroach
ments. The Standard Oil Company was
probably more frequently referred to than
any other big corporation In the country.
It was the standing awful example. It
makes all the difference in the world whose
ox is gored. Is the same thing tru^ as to
whose oil Is taxed, or as to whether one
has oil to be taxed?
But this matter may even go higher. Mr.
Bryan has recently Invested in oil lands in
Wyoming, and he. too, at no distant day
may become an oil magnate. Such, at any
rate, will be the general wish. And so in
time Mr. Bryan may have interests in com
mon with the Standard Oil Company. In
that event will he pool them, as his friends
In Texas are now doing, with those of the
giant octopus, and resist what oil owners
may consider excessive taxation? The
Wyoming legislature may attempt what the
Texas legislature is now attempting. Or
will Mr. Bryan labor with the Standard Oil
people, and bring them around to a liberal
frame of mind as to the amount in taxes
that oil should contribute toward the public
What is to be the end of the unmasking
which has now set in? How much further
than the matter of money and prosperity is
it likely to go? Need we be surprised if
some of the gentlemen who are now loudest
in the outcry against the policy of retain
ing the new possessions should in the next
year or two whip around in some fashion
and become champions of that policy? Who
shall say what the next few years may de
velop in the way of world changes, and of
America's duty to herself as properly in
fluenced by those changes? When all our
rivals for trade and the power that goes
with trade are advancing, who will propose
that we take the back track and drop out
of the world's leading calculations?
The Yellow Fever Tests Continue.
It appears that the reports published a
few days ago from Havana stating that the
mosquito tests for the transmission of yel
low fever would be abandoned because of
three deaths were premature. The tests
are continuing, and it is announced offi
cially that all persons who offer themselves
for this purpose will be subjected to ex
posure. It is difficult to sympathize with
the scientific determination to pursue such
a dangerous experiment further. It has
assuredly been demonstrated that mos
quitoes which have bitten patients can,
after a certain lapse, give the disease to a
well person. It should not require the ex
tension of the tests to one hundred cases,
as intimated, to prove the point conclusive
ly. The sanitarians know enough now to
prove that their duty is to exterminate the
mosquitoes if possible, in order to remove
the menace of yellow fever infection. It
has already been demonstrated that these
same insects transmit malaria, and the in
dictment against them is assuredly strong
enough to warrant conviction on both
Further sacrifices of human life will be
none the less cruel because the victims have
offered themselves voluntarily. An idea
seems to have spread that the bite of an
infected mosquito would Immunize a per
son against the disease. So light were the
earlier attack* following this treatment
that the process became popular and volun
teers were to be had in numbers. The mere
fact of willingness Is not sufficient to ex
cuse the wanton exposure of life. The vic
tims are not able to discriminate, and
should be restrained as soon as the scien
tific purposes have been measurably at
Mr. Gorman can probably be induced to
promise that he will not let too close a
devotion to creed stand in the way of hi3

Mr. Gorman has always been conspicuous
for his suave adjustability to circum

The Change-of-Uate Movement.
The movement for a change in the in
auguration date has of course the hearty
sympathy of every Washingtonian. and pre
sumably that of every other American who
has ever visited this city at such a time
and has suffered from the rigors of the
March weather. It Is known also to be
supported by many members of Congress,
not only for reasons of personal comfort,
but to permit a lengthening of the short
session, now inadequate for the tnansactlon
of the routine winter's work. Taken alto
gether there is doubtless enough favorable
sentiment scattered throughout the coun
try to cause a change. If properly con
served and directed. The Inaugural com
mitter of last spring has proposed a way
to utilize this sentiment through the or
ganization of a national committee, and
work has been started along this line with
evidences of strength In the movement
which are gratifying to the advocates of
the change of date.
One of the most reassuring signs of the
probablo success of this enterprise. If
pressed unremittingly, is the fact that the
newspapers of the country have very gen
erally approved of the movement. The
Chicago Post, for Instance, has taken a
sufficient interest In the matter to insti
tute a sweeping inquiry among representa
tive statesmen, and in a recent issue pub
lished a symposium of their views, sum
anarlzed in another part of today's edition.
It appears from this publication that the
Aiitt. at sentiment among the public men
; is toward a change of date. Most of these
favor the 30th of April, so generally sug
gested as the most appropriate and con
venient time for the ceremonials. Some
prefer an even later date, while a few of
fer arguments In behalf of a date con
siderably earlier than March 4, to bring
the new administration closer to the time
of the election.
There is apparently little question that if
any change at all is ordered by the people
it will be in the line of a postponement, to
permit the holding of the ceremonials at a
time of probably fair weather. There may
be a sentiment In favor of an earlier in
auguration, but the motives for such a
change are entirely different from those
which actuate the present advocates of a
shifting in the calendar. From a meteoro
i logical point of view the two propositions
( are distinctly opposed to each other. All
i such discussions of the subject, however,
are instructive and helpful In that they
arouse interest and spread the agitation.
Washington earnestly hopes that the sub
ject will not be permitted to lose its im
portance in the eyes of the people, but
that the movement will be kept alive and
constantly grow In force until the neces
sary legislation can be secured for the
The Franco-Turkish A??tr.
The departure of M. Constans from Con
stantinople Is regarded In Paris, accord
ing to today's dispatches, as a sever
ance of diplomatic relations between
France and Turkey, especially In view of
the fact that the Turkish ambassador at
Paris has been Instructed not to return to
the French capital. But the chances of
war following the sultan's failure to exe
cute his promises are no stronger than
when the trouble first approached the crit
ical stage. The cause Itself Is not serious,
certainly no more so than perhaps a doxen
other affairs now pending between the
porte and the powers.
But when a European government thus
suddenly seeks to secure payment or other
redress from Turkey by the severance of
relations it Is well to look to other factors
than the mere desire for liquidation. The
sultan Is a notoriously bad debtor and
France has no exceptional cause to regard
him as worthy of credence when he prom
ises to pay. But France is an ally of Rus
sia. and Russia is today the uncertain yet
dominant factor In the maintenance of
Turkey's integrity. That power has stood
between the porte and punishment more
than once in late years. The concensus of
opinion has lately been that Russia has
not felt the hour to have arrived when the
abolition of Turkey as an independent
power should be accomplished for her own
The motives of the government at St.
Petersburg in Its treatment of Turkey have
been obvious since the time of Peter him
self. With her railroads penetrating Asia
in the north and the south, with her emis
saries working Into the heart of the conti
nent to subordinate the people to her rule,
with her ships still barred from the Med
iterranean, with her eyes cast longingly
upon a southern port to match her forth
coming great Asiatic harbor on the Pacific,
the Russian desire for the opening of the
water route from the Black Sea is stronger
The question arises: Has France re
ceived a hint from St. Petersburg that now
is the time to press for payment, and, fail
ing payment, to organize a demonstration?
i Is Russia ready to strike her blow for the
opening of the Dardanelles?
The positive policy of France in behalf of
international peace accentuates these
j queries. For it is fairly to be assumed
that, lacking some incentive beyond the
mere collection of a debt, the Paris gov
ernment would not take the risk of a rup
ture of relations with a power so delicately
placed in the European situation as
? ? ?
Porto Rico and Hawaii are victims of the
same complaint?that Is, imported coffee.
! It may be true, but It Is nevertheless curi
ous, that Porto Rico and Hawaii each
claims to produce the best coffee in the
world. Each also declares that the imported
berries are cheap and nasty and that the
decoction of which they form the base is
unfit to drink. At the same time, they in
sist that if the inferior coffee is not kept
out the people of Porto Rico and of Hawaii
will imbibe it to the exclusion of the na
tive coffee, which Is, as already stated,
both In the case of Porto Rico and in the
case of Hawaii, the best ceffee in the world.

The battle of Santiago haa broken out
again in Spain. Commandant Concas, for
merly captain of the Viscaya, said at a
banquet at Bilbao that the politicians were
responsible for Cervera's defeat. Senor
Galvun, mayor of Bilbao, declared that the
Spanish naval officers were to blame. In
view of the doubt which exists in American
naval circles as to who was responsible for
Cervera's defeat these suggestions from
Spain may be of value.

American Industrial Conditions.
It Is not surprising that much of the
comment in Europe on the strike situation
here should be apprehensive In its tone.
Judging by familiar experience, most of
the older nations would foresee tn such a
clash of two distinct social elements con
sequences of the gravest character. But
the United States still has too many re
wards awaiting industry and ambition; too
m:.ny tracts of land awaiting irrigation;
too many branches of industry yet to be
developed, to permit men of those excep

devote themselves to social agitation as a

From the New York Tribune.
The Department of Agriculture has at the
Pan-American exposition an exceedingly
interesting display of pure and adulterated
food products. Except for one thing It
might be said to be extremely valuable.
The exhibit serves to awaken curiosity,
distrust, and even alarm by showing the
public specimens of dyes, impurities, and
even poisons found in alimentary articles
purchased in the open market. But it does
not enable any person to avoid such adul
terated foods. The labels are removed
from the products subjected to analysis, so
that no manufacturer's feelings are hurt
by the exposure of his dishonesty and no
consumer is warned what not to purchase
if he would avoid eating deleterious sub
stances. It is said that putting the labels
alongside the results of analysis would give
manufacturers of adulterated foods not
analyzed for the exhibit an advantage over
those whose impure goods were shown to
the public in their impurity. It is difficult
to sympathize with the plea that some men
should be protected In wrongdoing because
some others doing the same thing cannot
be punished at the same time. On that
theory very few criminals would ever be
sent to prison. Whatever justification
there may be for freeing this exhibition of
the scientific work of the Agricultural De
partment from complications, and avoiding
making the Pan-American showcases a pil
lory for manufacturers who are perchance
exhibitors on the same grounds, there Is
no reason why the department should be
tender of food adulterators in general.

of bribery, whereby gambling hells kept
police In their pay, and the police in return
protected the gambling hells, may seem a
little startling to those who know nothing
of the New York police and its Tammany
masters. The expert, however, will regard
these disclosures almost as commonplace.
Optimists in New York hope that this af
