WASHINGTON. WEI).\KSDAY September 11, lOOl. CROSHY S. NOYES TUB KVENIHG STAR ku a r?r?Ur Md permanent Family Circulation Much more than the combined clr enlatloa of the other Washington dallies.

Sympathy for the President. A correspondent of The Star In contrast ing yesterday the attitudes of ex-Speaker Reed and Senator Wellington toward the President in his affliction, said: "Reed's animosities are as much 8tro"f^ than Wellington's, probably, as his mind ] and body and soul are bigger than those of the Maryland pigmy. Reed had ten tlmea greater cause of resentment aKalnst Mr McKinley as resentments go. than wei l" pin; but ih.le the presslon to the warmest hope for the Pres ident's speedy recovery, the man Welling ton snarls his indifference. What "cause of resentment" has Mr. Reed against Mr. McKinley? So far as the public is advised he has none. The two men while serving in Congress together were the warmest of friends. Subsequent ly Mr. McKinley defeated Mr. Reed for the republican presidential nomination, but that afforded no just ground for a quarrel. The defeat was fairly and decisively adminis tered. and Mr. Reed supported his success ful rival for election. Mr. Reed differed with the President about the questions growing out of the Spanish war, as of course*he had a perfect right to do. But likewise had the Presi dent a perfect right to shape his policies without Mr. Reed's approval. He did so, and they were- so greatly at variance with Mr. Reed s views that rather than support them Mr. Reed retired from Congress. This action on Mr. Reed s part caused regret In some quarters and surprise in all quarters, but nobody advanced the idea that Mr. Reed could reasonably complain of ill usage. The differences were not personal in any sense. The President could as Justly have complained of Mr. Reed as Mr. Reed of the President. There was no reason In the world therefore why Mr. Reed should not express himself, as he did. In terms of sympathy for the President at this time. Mr. Wellington's case is unique. The se nior senator from Maryland Is the only man to whom the President has revealed himself in a light that robs him not only of good will but of human sympathy In the hour of suffering. The experience of all other men with the President has been to attach them to him more or less warmly. Many of his dearest friends and sincerest admirers are men who have differed i?lth him on all public questions foreign and do mestic. But they all testify to his kindly bearing and honorable dealing. This Is Mr. Wellington's startling distinction. He alone, of all men, has pierced the President's dis guise, and arrived at the real truth about him. And so not even the bullet of an as sassin stretching the President upon a bed of pain can awaken In Mr. Wellington's bosom a feeling of sorrow or tenderness. He, however. Is the loser. The President does not need hfcs sympathy, and the Mary land senator by withholding It sinks him self deeper than ever in the contempt of the country. ? ? : Sound Government Finances. Coming on top of the excitement caused by the President's wound and the unusual measures adopted in Wall street to protect the stock market, the offer of the Secretary of the Treasury to buy tM.OUO.OOO worth of bonds and to divert to the banks $5,000,000 In Internal revenue receipts affords a strik ing sign of the solidity of the governmental securities. No better evidence of the pass ing of all danger of a panic could well be had than this official advance for the ben efit of the money market. It was not re quired by any emergency arising from the Buffalo crime. It related solely to the nat ural demand for cash Incidental to the sea son. Heavy crops have been and are being harvested, despite the drouth In the west which somewhat curtailed the corn output. Money 1" needed to move them and it is re garded as bad policy for the treasury to absorb too much surplus revenue, holding it out of trade where It serves no useful purpose. There is no present possibility of a panic even with the market answering the fluctuations of the President's pulse. The substantial guarantees glvert by the leaders of finance will sustain the price list sufficiently to prevent a sudden demoraliz ing collapse. There may be a natural bear movement in the course of weeks, to be sure, but no signs of a panic are in evi dence. Were a period of shortage threat ened, causing a heavy demand for currency and finally for gold, such as occurred In 1?<?, it would be desirable, perhaps, for the treasury to retain possession of all of Its surplus, save as it might finally release enough to meet special cases. The gold re serve Is mire strongly protected now than ever before, and the opportunity is favor able to relieve the government of a portion of its interest burden. # > ? Dowie, the healer, who claims to be Elijah reincarnated, has not, with all his financial audacity, undertaken to rival the traction companies by putting any fiery chariot stock on the market. If the Standard Oil Company kills off the mosquitoes, its greatness In this respect will be gratefully remembered by posterity, even when Mr. Rockefeller's college dona tions are disregarded. ^ ? ? Political parties will be as harmonious In declaring against anarchy as they were in Inveighing against the trusts; and probably with a much greater measure of success. ? Crimes, Panlshment and Cure. On all sides are heard expressions of re gret that neither the federal nor the state laws applicable to the Buffalo crime will permit the sentencing of Czolgosz for a longer period than ten years, which must then be subject to deductions for good be havior. A very general desire seems to have been born that the wretch should be much more severely punished. He assured ly deserves a far heavier penalty than the six and a half years which, under the New Tork law, would be his maximum meed. But there is apparently no way out of the case. for the Constitution specifically pro hibits the enactment of ex post facto laws, and it would be of doubtful legality to ac cumulate the penalties by subdividing the crime, as has been proposed. The immediate problem demanding solu tion. however. Is not that of providing a more adequate penalty for the man now In Ctody, but to taka every possible step to ten the chance of a repetition of bis of fense and to provids with tha least delay tor a more adequate penalty for such crimes in tha future. M is obviously im possible to forestall by law or by special precautions all chance of murderous at tempts upon the President. But the coun try can. and should, emphasise the fact that a crime against him is aimed through him at the whole nation. Hence conspiracy to murder the head of the state calls for a special definition in the law, coupled with tha severest of penalties. An increase of penalties Is of doubtful efficacy, according to some penologists. Tha statistics of crime do not prove th*y? change in a state from the leni ?.? ? t * of Michigan, for Instance, to the severe policy of New York materially reduces the percentage of capital offenses. Evil calls for a deeper remedy than the Increasing of the punishment. The reform which Is to cure men of their vicious tendencies must strike out their moral disease germs, not their vital spark. The largest percentage of crime. It Is held by sociologists, has Its origin in the vicious surroundings of the individual. It is to be traced to the bad atmosphere In which children are reared. It arises from environment. To reach the disease these conditions must be changed. Much is be ing done in many fields along these lines. The social, moral and physical conditions of the poor are being everywhere improved through the enterprise of employers and volunteer workers who seek the better ment of society. Czolgosz represents a state of dissatisfaction which springs like wise from these vicious surroundings, in which It is apparently Impossible for some men to secure rational views of life. He has been exposed not only to the tempta tions of his own class, but to the teachings of radicals like Emma Goldman. The problem ultimately requiring solu tion is to correct the evil conditions which make men ready listeners to the pernicious doctrines of anarchism. Put the penalty as high even as the scaffold, sweep into the police drag-net all advocates of the murder cult for the regeneration of society, proscribe meetings and publications?do everything possible to destroy the specific germ of anarchism. But let these remedies be followed by the more Important meas ures of real, constructive reform, which will, if Intelligently devised and executed, remove much if not all of the reason for men's minds to absorb the dangerous theories of society which now appeal to their disordered imaginations as practi cable remedies for existing conditions. ? ? ? ? Rosslyn. The absolute necessity for a new way of approaching Arlington and Fort Myer from this city is well revealed by a visit to those points of Interest. Immediately the tourist puts his foot upon Virginia's soil he Is confronted with conditions shocking in their flagrancy and Irritating to the lover of the picturesque and the well or-J dered. The way to the fort and ^the na tional cemetery, the Mecca of many thou sands annually, Is lined with grog-shops and dives, which are run without the least regard for the laws or the calendar, afford ing brazen spectacles continuously from Monday morning to the close of Sunday night. Since the abolition of the canteen at Fort Myer these dens have prospered and multiplied as never before until Ross lyn Is a disgrace to the community which harbors Its establishments. Peaceful per sons seeking merely to pass through to one of these two centers of Interest or to the suburban colonies lying beyond the immediate range of Rosslyn's pollution are frequently menaced by footpads or insulted by drunken men. The place has become a moral pest hole. Alexandria county has struggled against this evil for a long time, but with small success. It was afflicted first with the gamblers* colony at Jackson City. Next St. Asaph with Its questionable horse racing and other tricks to fleece the un wary flourished until both places were in a certain degree suppressed through the Joint action of the authorities of the coun ty and those of the state, inspired by the moral support of the people of the Dis trict. Rosslyn has flourished, however, as though no victories had ever been scored against the dive-keepers farther down the shore. It is today an Impudent defiance of law and order. It threatens the morals of this city as seriously as did Jackson City when that vile place was in its fullest flower. It is even nearer of access, and, moreover, as suggested, it lies Immediately on the way to two Important government establishments, and thus impudently thrusts Its ugly face before throngs of decent people who would avoid "it only too gladly if they could. The construction of the proposed Me morial bridge would solve one phase of the problem, that of affording a decent ap proach to Arlington and Fort Myer. But at best such a bridge can not be provided for several years, even should Congress at the next session pass the requisite legisla tion. Meanwhile the moral menace at Rosslyn remains unchecked. It lures the youth to gamble, affords Illicit access to vile liquor and shelters lawbreakers of all sorts. The first step toward reform must be taken by the county officials. The peo ple of Washington will aid to the fullest extent of their ability. They will serve In this emergency as they did some years ago when they carried the case to Rich mond and secured the co-operation of Gov ernor O'Ferrall and the ultimate compara tive purification of the lower corner of the county. Governor Smith has promised to bring Maryland to the scratch In the treatment of the evils at Chesapeake Junction and vicinity. Will not Governor Tyler do as much for the capital on the southwestern border and thereby deliver a stroke as well for the advancement of the substantial in terests of the commonwealth? The vanity of human Intelligence seeks various outlets. One man seeks to devise a perfect government and another Is in search of perpetual motion. Neither has succeeded as yet, and both are still hopeful In spite of the strictly practical people who shake their heads and declare it can't be done. ?? ? ? The big capitalists have prevented a break in the market, and some of the small Investors are Inclined to think that large aggregations of money are, after all, of occasional benefit. ? ? ? It remains to be seen whether the Chi nese will be as successful In evading pecu niary obligations as they were in avoiding the court formalities flrst prescribed by Germany. -? ? It is hoped that Sir Thomas Upton has this time succeeded In producing a yacht that will make it worth while for the Co lumbia to show what she can do. 9 ? The man who announces that he will do something that costs only a million dollars Is regarded as small fry In these opulent da vs. Czolgosz says he was persuaded by the writings of Emma Goldman. It Is the old story of Adam and Eve. ? s ? If Havana Is wise, it will keep pretty close to the government that kept down yellow fever. * * ? 0 m Mr. Carnegie's bank book is now regarded as a standard work in a large number of lib rarles. ^ ^ ^ Perhaps Mr. Lawson might arrange for a megaphone match. ? e ? For a sick man the sultan demands very exciting amusements. ? ? m Suppressing Anarchism. The attempt to assassinate the President places before this country one of the most difficult problems It has yet had to solve. Formerly the anarchists could be dismissed as vaporous cranks. So tender has been the fear of limiting freedom of speech or of establishing precedents whereby men might be persecuted because of their honest con victions that demonstrations which amount ed to absolute defianoe of law and order have been generously ignored. Good nature has as usual been made to pay a severe penalty, and It now devolves upon the I'nlted States to protect its chief magts ite and at the same time to keep aloof from the forms of despotism which the founders of this republic hoped above all other things to avoid. The suppression of anarchism has become one of the Impera tive questions of the hour, one that majr well command the nation's best Intelligence. ? s m If Kansas gets to be a multi-billionaire state it can be depended upon to do some thing more original than to donate libra ries or hold fancy parties at Newport. The difficulty with Russell Sage's philoso phy is that his idea of success is for a man who already has more money than he can use to go ahead and get sabre. The man who Is continually howling for no government at all is the one who is most likely to provoke an overdose of it. SHOOTING STARS. Mutual Expectation*. "Lady," said Meandering Mike, "I have traveled a long an' weary way in de hope of gettln' anudder one o' dem pies like what you gimme last year." *Well!" exclaimed the housewife, who isn t afraid to be left at home alone, "If that isn't a coincidence! I have had one of those same pies waiting all these months for somebody to come along and eat It!" Upside Down. The man's that's overdressed you'll meet Too oft 'mongst human kind. He wears his polish on his feet Instead of on his mind. Valuation. (Talk is cheap," said the proverb monger. That s right," answered Senator Sor ghum. "The time is past in my part of the country ifhen a man can get office by gcing around making speeches and not spending a cent." Piscatorial. "Would you say that our friend belongs to the codfish aristocracy?" "No," answered Miss Cayenne. "His so cial pretensions may be a bit fishy, but any one who can make as big a splash as he has caused is really entitled to be consid ered a whale." A Wise Man's Ignorance. "Why Is It that so few people seem anx ious to talk to Mr. Carplngton? He seems very well informed." 'That's just the difficulty," answered Miss DImpIeton. "He's one of those dread ful men who know enough to correct your mistakes when you quote the classics and who don't know enough not to do it." An Unsympathetic Type. He ain't like other folks a bit. He'll stand aside polite An' sometimes own up pleasantly That mebbe you are right. He'll listen to an argument An' not get mad at all; He never bullies men because They happen to be small. , % He never brags about himself; He toils as best he can An' does his daily duty by His kin an' fellow-man. Fur simple hospitality He has enough to spare. He ain't a-gettln' very rich; An' doesn't seem to care. An' yet he doesn't seem to be The Idol of the crowd. We half suspect so good a man Is likely to git proud. There's no denyin' of the praise His character evokes. He has our admiration?but He ain't like other folks. Ladle* and Gentlemen?The President. From the Utfva ObseiTPr. "Ladles and gentlemen?the President." With those words, and those words only, John G. Milburn Introduced William Mc Kinley to those assembled at the pan American exposition at Buffalo. We ques tion if there be in all this broad land an other man who could have "blue penciled" his eloquence as effectively and well as John G. Milburn. "Ladies and gentlemen: I now have the great honor of presenting to you a gentleman who needs no introduc tion, the Honorable William McKlnley, the President of the United States." That was the speech that required cutting down. The first clause Is unadulterated egotism. Let it go. The second Is redundant and unnec essary?all except the words "the Presi dent." We admire Mr. Milburn?the man who made an eloquent speech of two words, preceded by three words of introduction, which universal use sanctions. Offense of the Rillboard. From the Portland Oregonlan. What shall we say of the billboard?that triumph of modern art and redoubtable Ingenuity? It shows us a paradox of pub lic opinion, for while everybody except the malefactors concerned denounces it, yet everybody suffers It. He who assails the ear with offensive sounds, if not In the name of religion, can be suppressed, and the law will protect the nostril against ob jectionable odors. But the eye is helpless against the grotesque and disturbing sights spread before it to the disfigurement of natural scenery, the destruction of land scapes and the annoyance of the residence sections of our cities. Is there no relief? Beginnings in this much-needed reform have been made both in Europe and in the United States. That the billboard can be suppressed, and that it can be controlled and made a source of revenue, has been proved in almost every city in Europe. Belgium, France, Holland and Germany regulate the size, position and character of every poster, and a graduated tax is not uncommon. London Mud and Dost. From the Lancet. In spite of, or possibly because of, parlia ment, the London county council, the metropolitan boroughs and the lighting and water companies London Is possibly the most inconvenient and most untidy city of Europe. The streets are either muddy, slushy or dusty; they are littered with straw, cabbage leaves, newspaper posters and omnibus tickets; they are constantly being grubbed up for some reason or other; barrels of beer, coals and other goods are delivered across the footways at all hours of the day; omnibuses are allowed to block the streets pretty much as they please, and chimneys are allowed to make the air filthy because they "cannot get Welsh coal." So long as London is governed by, or rather is dependent for its due regulation upon, a number of bodies all Independent of each other, so long will nuisances of various kinds continue. We make no suggestion as to who should be the governing body, but that there should be one is certain. Two Discordant Notes. From the New York Tribune. Only two voices seem to have broken the common outpouring of regret and horror over the tragedy at Buffalo. One is that of Senator George L. Wellington of Mary land; the other that of Mth. Carrie Nation of Kansas. Two Poles. From the Newark Advertiser. Poland gave us Kosciusko. It has also given us Czolgosx. The illustrious Kosci usko fought to establish free Institutions In America. The miscreant Czolgoes, shel tered by those institutions, raised his wretched hand to destroy them. A Substitute (or Rope. From the Detroit Free Preaa. It is now asserted that the new constitu tlon&l amendments in the southern states will elevate the blacks. As we understand It, the constitutional amendments will be substituted for the rope. ? a ?

The reader may be surprised to read that the fashions for 1902 are no longer visions, but realities pn the shelves and tables of all the go-ahead retail establishments.

Both were published yesterday morning. Wanamaker's Advt. (Philadelphia "Times.") Yesterday morning's cold snap made the women with lit tle tailor-made suits plume themselves, and those who had none went shivering along the street with chattering teeth till Old Sol got high in the heavens.

The Eton Jacket, which seems to lire above every other style, is here again, hat with a yoke this time, and the effect of a Norfolk jacket. The skirts are about the same.
