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.

Political parties will be as harmonious In
declaring against anarchy as they were in
Inveighing against the trusts; and probably

?
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.

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.

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.

Carter Harrison's Boon.
From the Topeka Journal.
Cartef Harrison's presidential boom has
progressed far enough for him to be the ob
ject of an occasional attack by a republican
paper outside of Chicago. \

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. Some idea of the uniformity
of ideas is given below?in Mr. Wanamaker's advertisement, clipped
from the Philadelphia Times, and the Palais Royal advertisement,
in the Post. 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.
Palais Royal Advt.
(Washington "Post.")
Auturfm fashions are no
longer embryo fashions. Paris,
London and New York have
hatched the correct 1901-1902
costumes.
Two illustrations:
$24
for Bent Cheviot Salts, lined
throughout with silk. They have
the new double-breasted Eton with yoke.
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. They
flare a little, though it la not more pro
nounced than it was In the spring, and the
seams are stitched and double stitched.
