THE EVENING STAR.
WASHINGTON. SATURDAY July 11, 1903. CROSBY S. NO YES Editor. THB EVEN1NQ STAR has a regular and per. manent Family Circulation much more than the combined circulation of the other Washington dallies. As a News and Ad vertising Medium it has no competitor. tW In order ta avoid delays on account of personal absence, letters to THE STAR should not be addressed to any Individual connected with the office, but simply to THE STAR, or to the Editorial or Business Departments, ac cording to tenor or purpose. Mr Bryan and Sociology. The following from Omaha is interesting "WUliain JBet^"g^S^calU con'ilflons JS-'iy^^ptember he ".."ld sall f.ir Ku rope. to lx> absent four months. He W1 sryvi '?"??? slons." It was Henry Watterson who a few years ago advised Mr. Bryan to go abroad and take a look around. He pointed out the advantages of travel to a man of Mr. Bry an's alertness and ambition; how It would minister both to his happiness and to his usefulness. Is Mr. Bryan now acting on that nudge? Has he decided that there Is gain for him in a personal ?n?^0on ? conditions and Influences outside of hi own country? The Itinerary -uggested should add materially to the aum of his knowledge and afford him material not only for a book, but lectures and stump speeches. For In Mr. Brjan. case the tongue is mightier than the pen. Sociology and not finance is to be the subject of Investigation. Is Mr. Brjan shifting bis ground? Is he ^te?tng uPon a new crusade? He passed ^om the tariff silver very smoothly and shrewdly. He no l-M trJS on the question of taxation. He simply seized and made his own the newer^ques tion of the money supply. He found^th the people were thinking more about money than the forms of taxation, and he jumped into leadership on the new lssue_ It was a bold stroke, but well executed, and while he missed the presidency, he K^ned both fame and fortune. He has been the principal figure in his party for ?*>ven yeara. and for four of them Its master, and he Is today a rich man. Is Mr. Bryan preparing to pass from silver to sociology? He has not. we know, abandoned any ground on the silver ques tion. He has repeatedly assured the coun try of that. But does he realize that silver, for the time being at least, has lost Its hold on public attention? And Is it his opUdob that sociology is the coming question. Does he read in the signs of the times, in the general unrest and the growth and ac tivity of labor organizations, the promise of a new issue for next year's national campaign? And is he meditating a new ap peal to the country? The effort of the Cleveland people so far has been to "harmonize" Mr. Bryan as to silver. Suppose Mr. Bryan should not press silver next year, but sociology. What an swer would the Cleveland people make to that? . ^ W 9 W Far Eastern War Talk. There has been no verification of the dis patch which came a few days ago from Odessa describing the terms of a demand made by Japan and England upon China that she require Russia to withdraw *rora Manchuria. The time-limit of five days stated in the dispatch, has expired, and there is therefore no reason to regard the report as authentic. Meanwhile. Interest ing facts are reported from a point closer to the scene of activity than Odessa. A conference was held at Port Arthur the other day attended by all the chief Russian diplomatic and military officials stationed In China and Manchuria. The subject of the discussion was kept a secret, but it is assumed to have been the future conduct of Russia in the I.aio Tung peninsula. It is now stated that China was invited to send a representative to the conference, bu. declined because of the possibility that his presence would be interpreted by England. Japan and other powers as a sign of toJ Intimate a relationship between China and Russia. This was doubtless a wise decision and an accurate forecast of the future ou the part of China s astute managers. There Is a sudden and marked revival of war talk in the far east, but It Is traceable to no particular source. Both Japan anl Russia seem to be growing restless In Japan there is no apparent division of tue public sentiment against Russia, although some of the anti-ministerial elements are Inclined to deprecate this sentiment lor purely political purposes. But the opposi tion is at the same time berating the gov ernment for not being better prepared for war. There are hints In the latest dis patches of a disposition in Japan to act in dependently of England in the premises Ever since the formation of the offensive and defensive alliance between these two powers Japan has strained in the leash while England has held back her more im pulsive associate. Over in I'ort Arthur the Russian newspapers are assuming a pointedly bellicose tone, doubtless In con sequence of tips from headquarters. Rus sian newspai**rs more surely reflect n'e policies of the government than do those ot any o-.her country. While rabidly belliger ent publications may not always indicate that the government Intends to go to war, they at least may be interpreted as Indi cating *hat the government wishes the rest of the world to believe that it la ready io Ko to war. ? ? It IB hoped that John Burroughs' associa tion with Mr. Roosevelt will not lead to an abandonment of the mild and agreeable poesy of his character. Mr. Burroughs as a martial, bear-hunting athlete would be very unsatisfactory. e ? * Kaftsas has had politicians enough. The demand now Is for farm hands. Petty Fraud on a Big Scale. The Post Ofllce Department has just taeued a fraud order which aptly Illustrates the heedless manner In which a certain part of the public often falls Into the traps of the wily. It furthermore affords a new view of the eagerness of people to get something for nothing or for as near noth ing as possible. This particular game is on* of those "endless chain" systems such aa thrived briefly a few years ago in con nection with various advertising and vend ing schemes. Forfl a person Is furnished with a four-coupon book, three of the coupons, each entitling the holder to buy a book for 75 cents more, to be sold to as many other persons for twenty-five cents each and the fourth returned to the company with the seventy-five cents thus obtained. Then the purchaser and vendor receives his reward in the form of twenty-five car tickets good In the city In which he lives. Thus he will pay one cent apiece for these tickets. In Washington this represents a profit of three and one-sixth cents on each ticket, or 7B 1-6 cents on tlie whole trarwactlon. Aathls is ob viously a dead loss of as much to the oper ating company?assuming that the tickets are not counterfeit or that It has not se cured discounts from the transportation companies?It is necessary to look for its opportunity for making good. That op portunity comes In the physical impossibili ty of continuing the "chain." The legal officer of the department In reporting on the matter demonstrates mathematically that sixteen of these chains would involve, for success In each instance, no less than 387.398.310 persons as purchasers of cou pons in order that 129.132.873 persons might receive tickets at the rate of one for a cent. The profpectus of the company proposes two hundred of these chains, which would Involve 77,479,703.800 persons, or nearly one thousand times the total population of the United States. Naturally a very large per centage of those embarking on this petty enterprise would fall short of securing the requisite number of coupon buyers. They would soon find themselves approached by all their friends, but having coupons them selves to sell would not buy. In a very short time the market would be floooded with coupons and to every successful in vestor there would be thousands of unsuc cessful ones, money out. The ratio of com pany success is infinitely greater than that of personal success. There 1h the profit and there the unassailable reason why the gov ernment is rightly putting its ban upon the enterprise. Mid glimmer Political Gossip. When in doubt play trumps. Thus are card players advised. When hard up for news reconstruct the President's cabinet, suggest a new man for the presidency, or find a new field for some official of note and influence. Thus are political gossips advised. The cabinet, these warm and dull days, receives no little attention. Mr. Root re turns again and again to his law practice In New York. In fact, it is difficult to keep track of him. When he is not on his way to reopen his office over there, he Is on his way to attend to his official duties here. Mr. Knox Is hardly so much of a favorite in this wky, but he is pot altogether ne glected. Every now and then he is repre sented as impatient to resume his work at Pittsburg, and as being held here with the greatest difficulty. Mr. Hay, we are as sured. is tired of It all, and longs for rest and privacy. He may lose his patience and throw up his office any time. It was only the other day that Mr. Hanna was made to dispose of all his business in terests. He had found himself overloaded with engagements. Business was pulling him In one direction and politics in another. He could not obey both calls. He had de cided therefore to let business slide and de vote bis whole time to politics. Henceforth he might be expected to be more active than ever in the field of his choice, and to play the game up to the limit. Free-handed now, he might even try for the presidency, notwithstanding his expressions In favor of Mr. Roosevelt. Today Mr. Quay has his inning. His house is being set In order for him, and he is expected to retire at the close of his present term in the Senate. He will only say in reply to a question that he has nothing further to "ask" of the people of Pennsylvania for himself. But maybe his lieutenants will see to It that he doesn't have to ask for another term as senator. In which event it Is difficult to conceive of their losing favor with their chief. But tills gossip is not without its in struction. That Mr. Root and Mr. Knox are serving the government at a pecuniary loss to themselves is a fact. Each could tomorrow resume a law practice which would pay him ten times as much as the government pays him. That Mr. Hay wou'd enjoy his library and his ease we may well believe. But at the same time these men have pride in their official work and a patriotic inspiration in performing it, and ease and money do not control them. And such men are the hope and stay of good government In the United States. ? ? ? Hot Weather Truths. The present hot weather is continuously severe enough to warrant serious thought on the part of all persons who are com pelled to be active during the day. Over exertion is dangerous and overindulgence of any sort is an invitation of trouble. The streets are baking and the air that moves through them has few of the quali ties that impart strength. If workers can sit quietly alongside of electric fans they can keep from Intense discomfort, but for each of such persons there are hundreds who must toil in close quarters where the air cannot be changed and where no breeze ever penetrates, or out in the open, where the direct rays of the sun work their bale ful Influence. These should keep the mind as far as pos sible from the subject of the heat. Avoid the thermometer. Avoid weather topics. Try to be cheerful and whenever the heat thought intrudes itself consider that hot as it is It might be much worse. Sudden dosing of the stomach with iced drinks Is dangerous, especially if there is no food in It. It Is more important that this important organ be kept supplied with solids than with so-called cooling liquids. A box of crackers kept close at hand fol an occasional nibble is better than a pitcher of ice water. This keeps the stomach in good order by giving It normal work to do and prevents a congestion of the blood in the brain. The digestive organs are stim ulated rather, than chilled and chocked. Hearty eating is not so dangerous in hot weather as injudicious eating. It is the. kind rather than the quantity of food that tells in such a season. Under-ripe fruit is always bad and especially so with the sys tem under its usual tone. Ice cream Is of questionable wisdom. Only when it is above the least suspicion as to purity and freshness Is it safe. Drug store intemper ance is quite as bad in some respocta in hot weather as saloon intemperance, and the drinking of soda water may easily be carried to a dangerous excess. Yesterday morning's official weather fore cast assured the public that it would be fair Frldsy v'ith showers on Saturday. This mornings forecast declares that 't will be fair today with showers on Sunday. This manana method of predicting cooling rrins smacks intolerably of the torture in flicted by the gods of old upon one Tan talus. before whom flowed a stream which his thirsty lips could never quite reach. It is hoped that no Colombian statesmen have gotten the idea that the canal project is a plum tree to be shaken with care and deliberation. _ _ With scarcity of coal threatened In win ter and scarcity of cotton goods in summer, these are indeed troublesome times. It Is alarming to note the number of gen tlemen who scream every time Mi* vice presidential bee comes near them. This is the time of year when "Chau tauquas" benefit a large number of people, especially the lecturers. The season now threatens to be one son tlnuous hot wave. Criminal Pranking. Fun Is one thing, folly Is another. A Jo cose spirit is admirable until It becomes cruel Then It Is both contemptible and reprehensible. The practical joker is almost Invariably a fool himself, else he would not continually try to make fools of others, usually his best friends. A party of these Idots the other day up In New York state came across a copperhead snake on the ground. They thought It was dead and conceived the project of carrying It back to their camp and flinging It In the face of one of their companions, whom they had left asleep. They did so, laughing heartily the while In anticipation of the fright of the victim of this excruciatingly funny prank. They tossed the snake Into the sleeper's face and were In the throes of great Joy when they saw the supposedly dead snake fling back Its head and strike viciously at the face of the awakening man. It had been only stunned and was sufficiently aroused by its treatment to enable it to bite. The young man was seriously poisoned, but later recovered from the venom. Even if the snake were dead beyond all question the action of these Jokers should have earned for them a sound thrashing. Nothing could possibly excuse such con duct. They might have frightened the man into a fit, or even have driven him insane. Some persons are constitutionally afraid of snakes to the extent of panic. The mere sight of them In the zoo cages is enough to cause serious mental and physical distress. Yet they are frequently made the victims of tricks of this kind. Knowing their aver sion others will lay dead snakes across their path, or will tie them on strings and trail them through the grass, or will, as In this New York case, toss them into the neigh borhood of the victims. There may be an over-production of crim inal laws in this country, but there would seem to be room for at least one more on the statute books of every state, punishing with imprisonment?If public sentiment is adverse to the whipping post?any person who deliberately frightens another in the name of "fun." The fool-killer, unaided by the police, cannot attend to all the work cut out for him. ? ? ? Durbin of Indiana. A Durbirt vice presidential boom has been launched. Will it prosper? There can be no doubt that the governor of Indiana has very favorably impressed the country by the energy and decision with which he has met the mob spirit in his state. He has not only spoken for law and order, but acted in their behalf. And law and order are an issue now. The mob spirit is strong in many quarters, and seems to be grow ing. Too many officials, high and low, show a disposition to temporize, and even to de fer to It. Gov. Durbin is of a different kind. He stands for the proper authority, and executes with courage and fidelity the commission which the people have put into his hands. Growing out of this is the sug gestion that Roosevelt and Durbin may strike the republican fancy next year. ? > ? The Pal ma Trophy Won. Good news from Blsley! The American rifle team wins from that representing Great Britain by fifteen points in the in ternational match for the Palma trophy! This Is the right sort of victory.- It really means more than the capture or successful defense of an America's cup. It stands for practical marksmanship on the part of the fighting forces of the republic superior to that of the fighters representing Great Britain. A rousing reception is the due of the crack shots when they return home with the great trophy, sign of the rifle championship of the world. ?? ? ? ? A Boston man says that men who will not wed are cowards. This idea of matri mony as a test of courage is not altogether happy. There is room for suspicion that a great deal of unauthentic information has been circulated in connection with the pope's ill ness. ? ? ? London has been having the warmest weather of the year. It is a pleasure to know that this is the correct thing. ?i This year's corn crop is comparatively small, but there is no cornbread trust to disturb the prospect of joy. A watermelon famine is threatened. There seems to be no end to the tribulations ot the colored race. ?? ? ? Russia declines to take the chip off Its shoulder even in the case of an old friend. SHOOTING STABS. Wasted Effort. "Have you ever made any effort to get work?" "Yes, indeed," r.nswered Meandering Mike. "I once got work fur t'ree different members of my family, but none of 'ta would take It." "If common-sense grown folks," said Uncle Eben, "was as numerous as uncom mon smaht children dar wouldn' be so much trouble 'bout runnin' de gov'ment." July Temperature. This summer drinking water? We needn't boil the stuff; Just stand it in the window And 'twill soon be hot enough. Safe. "What do you think of my : ew r.;vel ?" said the industrious author. "You are safe in one respect," said the Inconsiderate friend. "The e is nothing in it good enough to put you under the suspi cion of plagiarism." Reformed. "I'm glad to hear that you have turned over a new leaf." said the man with a bunch of tracts. "I have your solemn promise that you will never commit another burglary?" "You have," answered the occupant of the cell. "No doubt you have been brought to this change of heart by the tracts I gave you." "It wasn't the tracts so much as the newspapers. There's no use in breaking open a man's house to get his money. The thing to do is to work out a neat little get rich-quick game, open an office and let him bring Ills wages to you." Two Pictures. If I were king! Oh, haughty phrase! What splendid fancies does it raise! The world should group about my throne And men should heed my will alone. The Joys that pomp and power bring Should all be mine. If I were king. Yon frightened wretch with cowering stride Has slaves who walk with loftier pride. His faltering lips give no command. He hides from the assassin's hand. He lives, a flattered cheated thing. Oh, monstrous fate. If I were king! A Hot Weather Item. From the Brooklyn Eagle. And there's another Item: Because you eat big course dinners in winter, when you are more acfive and need more fuel, don't consider yourself bound to eat the same sort of dinners now. Try cold dishes, less meat, more vegetables, especially salads, iced tea, ice cream, fruits, and after the meal take life as easily as circumstances permit. For this, rocking chairs and ham mocks were made; for this, beaches were mercifully dispensed along the edge of the water. Encourage the oldest daughter to play on the piano?no Jigs, mind, but largos and adagios, tranquilizing and disposing to contemplation. With Chopin and lemonade, with Schubert and sherbet, with Mendels sohn and lobster, one may weather out more kinds of summers than we have had so far, and be thankful for the privilege. Don't get mad about the weather. It makes It all the worse. Working Full Time. From the Denver Republican. It is evident that nothing is going to make the Vice Presidential Boomers' Union take a layoff for the summer. It May Be So. From the LnoisTllle (Ky.) Poet.
