The union station bill should not be al lowed to fail at this session of Congress, for the lack of agreement between the houses as to the amount the District and the gov ernment should pay to the- railroads as a bonus for their Improvements. The issue is distinct. Shall the House insist upon re ducing the payment to each road from $1,500,000 to $1,000000: shall it recede from its amendment and allow the larger sum to be paid, or shall it accept the~compromise which, if report be accurate, has been pro posed by the Senate conferees, to split the difference? The District wants this Improvement, so does the government and so do the rail roads. The corporations cannot persuade Congress or the public that they are being forced against their desires into this enter prise of a union station. By it they will gain materially in convenience, save in ulti mate expense and equip themselves in ac cordance with the modern standard. Even with the bonus reduced as proposed they will be vastly the gainers by a union of the terminals. The time is now short before adjournment, only ten di-ys remaining of the session. The bill as it rests in conference represents the work of many years, painfully brought to its present state. A difference of $750,00 on the part of the general government and of $250000 on that of the District stands between the present state of case and final enactment. There seems to be very little apprehension on the part of the constituted guardians of the public treasury relative to the threatened drain upvn the federal funds. The District can ilI afford further burdens, while it is staggerAng along under a heavy load of taxation and cash pay ments for great permanent works. But If in the last analysis it were a question be tween the union station bill failing at this session and the acceptance of the Senate's extreme terms there would probably be but little local demur to taking the latter alter -native, however just may be the reasons for reducing the bonus. The House has once voted emphatically to insist upon its amendment. It Is whis pered that the railroad interests are confl dent that a second appeal to the House will result differently, owing to active mission ary work which has lately been in progress. Such a vote should be taken immediately. This Is no time for delay. The District has never agreed that the terms of the B. and 0. act of 1901 ara equitable, and it hailed with delight the action of the House in reducing the bonus as a stroke of justice. It has no interest in the proposed payments to the Pennsylvania, that being a concern only of the federal government. If an offer has been actually made in conference to split the difference it would seem Incredible that the railroad companies can be confident now of a receding vote. Such a vote would, iWthe face of a possible compromise, reflect seriously upon the majority. Rather should the House, when the con ference report is presented, ascertain clearly what it can do toward carrying at least half of its reduction. A vote to stand by the amendment would enable the conferees with the better grace and the greater as surance of success to demand that the Sen ate recede, or. if the Senate still refuses, that the differences be compromised. A s iare recession from the amendmnt on the part of the House would be excus able only if the Senate. by a direct vote, emphatically instructed its conferees to re ject the House amendment, and then only if every possibility of a compromise were to fail. But these maneuvers should be promptly executed. The matter in hand is one of the most important before Congress at this time short of the pending treaties on 'the Senate's table. It affects the whole country, and should not be .con sidered as merely a routine Item of local legislation. Failure to enact this bill this year would lessen. public confidence in the abilty of Congress to transact the coun try's business. I e No flail for Tillman. James H.

Patting Us on the 1ack. This cablegram appeared in Wednesday's newupape-ra under a Paris date line: "Commenting on the settlement of the Venezuelan affair. -the Petit Journal says the United States have gained more than any other power, and that the value of the assmisace of France in any future conflict has been better appreciated than ever on the other aide of the Atlantic. The paper adds that if the U'nited States were to join the Franco-Russian alliance it would be to the advantage of both republics." The V'enesutlan affair has yielded the United Stamsz nothing beyond the recogpi tion of the Monroe doctrine by two of the foremost powers of .Europe. With that, however. France had nothing to do. -Be fore sending their ships to the scene both Great Britatin and Germany gave assurances to this government that their plans com prehended no seisure of Venezuelan terri tory. That was the sole interest the United States had in the matter. As for the Franco-Rtussian alliance, the United State by joining that would forfeit the Monroe doctrine. That would involve us in Euro pean questions, and put an end to our In dependece as the leading power in this hemisphere.

Yester.ay's awftl grade crossing disaster in Newark is the latest .proof of the fatal folly of permitting electric and steam -ines to cross each other on the same level. Every. time a street car approaches a rail road crossing- there is a possibility of a crash, in which the'lighter vehicle suffers. In this city there are several such cross ings where the element of danger Is high. Good forttine has heretofore prevented such a disaster as that at Newark, but the com munity which relles upon luck must eventu ally come to grief. In Newark, as here, the crossing was "guarded" by gates, flimsy barriers which act merely as moral warn ings, and not as physical deterjrents. The car was beyond the control of the motor man for some reason not yet ascertained, and crashed through the light obstacle as easily as a boot heel crushes a peanut. The motorman is at present -held in blaVAe, just as Engineer Davis of the Jerse Cen tral road was blamed by the coroner's jury for the recent Westfield (horror. In the case of Davis It is pretty clear that -his lo comotive was defective. In the case of the Newark motorman there Is reason to be lieve that his sand box was empty. In all such instances the public should, regardless of coroners' juries, look squarely back to the employing corporation for the ultimate accountability. Leaky locomotives --and empty sand boxes may be blamable upon the operators of the locomotives or cars. But where is the system of inspection which is supposed to safeguard the public against the negligence or forgetfulness of the oper atives? Why should a trolley car whose course carries it over a dangerous grade crossing be permitted to exhaust.its supply of sand? Why should a locomotive be put in service which is dable to develop steam leaks at any moment and obscure the vision of the engineer? It may be said for the employing corporations that the engineer at Westfield should have slowed his train when he found it impossible to see the sig nals. and that the Newark. motorman should have reversed his -current In time to avert the least possibility of a crash when he found his sand box e4pty., Bu.t. that does not excuse The Ootporations for failing to inspect and"insinre tight' steam joints or full sand boxes at every stage of the progress of locomotive or trolley car, nor for holding their employes to schedules forcing them to take such risks. In the case of the street railroad ,there remains the one prime question, Why was not a derailing switch in use at this dan gerous point? With guch a switch it is. necessary for the conluctor to cross the railroad track and turn a lever or pull a chain before the street car- dan dconttnue its way without runing off Its own tracks. At son%e of the suburban grade crossings of electric and steam lines in this vicinity such switches are in use and they qAord an absolute guarantee against collisions. They sliould Indeed be required .of the- local lines at these points of even greater danger within the city lim..s. So that at Newark there was first the city permitting the railroad to continue its occupation of tihe streets at grade regard less of the increasing tendency to force the corporations to raise or lower their tracks; next, the railroad persisting in such grade crossings; finally, the street railroad-tcom pany failing to provide derailing switches and a proper inspection system. There would seem to be criminal culpability on all sides. .. Mayor Low desires a complete change in the morale of the police force. And the police are now looking in the dictionary to see what "morale" means. Sir Thomas Lipton will soon launch an other Shamrock, wit-h this country's hearty wishes that it will prove to be next to the best boat in the world.

From the New York Tribune., SAn old, old lesson was emphasized afresh by the shocking accident in Newark yester day morning. Tragedies of the same kind have been enacted over and over during ]he last half.century.-Dtalls vary, but the one underlying cause continues to operate in lamentable fashion. Until a dosen years ago it was either two trains that met on a grade crossing or one train and a -team. Of late the construction of trolley lines has, Opened up new possibilities of encounter, with consequences as disastrous as any which had resulted before. In the present instance both the steam road and trolley track were on down grades. The engineer of the Lackawanna train could not see the other line because of obstacles; and the motorman of"Mhe trolley car had icy tracks to deal with. His efforts to stop headway were in vain. In an Instant several passen gers-probably eight or ten-were killed and something like a score seriously hurt. Con sidering the fact that over a hundred per sons -were on board the car, it is a wonder that so many escaped alive. Movements for the abolition of grade crossings in other cities .will doubtless de rive, and should derive, new impetus from Newark's experience. Much has already been accomplished In Buffalo. Chicago and other large centers of -population in the last decade. Much more remains to be done, thiough. Moreover, since a 'long course of public agitation and formal negotiations seems to be requisite in every case, it is dsirable to Initiate the campaign so much the sooner.
