TTTE EVENING STAR.
WASHINGTON. THURSDAY November 1903. CROSBY S. NO YES Editor. THE EVENINO STAR haa a regular and per manent Family Circulation much more than the combined circulation of the other Washington dallies. Aa a News and Ad vertising Medium It haa no competitor. Iir~ In order to avoid delaya on account of personal absence, letters to THE STAR should nut be addressed to any Individual connected with the office, but simply to THE STAR, or to the Editorial or Business Department*, ac? cording to tenor or purpose. The President's Delay. Much of the criticism of the President in the matter of the Isthmian canal is based upon Ills failure or refusal to turn to Nica ragua and Costa Rica as soon as he was advised of the adverse action of the Co lumbian congress on tlie Hay-Herran treaty. It is Insisted that he should not have waited day. but have Immediately opened nego tiations in the new quarter. The Star shared In this feeling until the establish ment of the new government of Panama enabled the taking of a survey of the whole case. That the transcontinental railroad com panies followed us to Bogota and fought us I here Is generally believed. They are very licit, very well organized, and have long been active against a canal. They did all l hey could at this capital to defeat action, but were finally outgeneraled. The differ ences between the two houses of Congress, honestly entertained, were at last adjusted, and a bill was passed giving the preference to Panama, but In a certain contingency authorizing a canal across Nicaragua. We suddenly found Colombia very stubborn and unreasonable, and at last she refused to ratify the treaty which her special repre sentative had signed for her. She made a good deal of noise about the question of sovereignty, but the toot of the American locomotive wan distinguishable over nil. Now nothing is more likely than that, had the President turned to Nicaragua, there, too, would have appeared the railroad com panies on deck, ready to renew the fight. The same Interests that had taken them to Bogota would have induced them to journey to the new field of action. And there we should have been at even greater disadvan tage than we had been at Bogota; for In turning from Colombia the President must have put that route behind him definitely, and made the Nicaragua route the only one. Then would have come a battle with the railroads for control: and as they have been pretty powerful elsewhere, here at home as well as at Bogota, we should prob ably have been balked again, or have had to pay dearly for everything we got. But the republic of Panama?carefully l>lalined, but very suddenly executed?upset tlie plans of the railroad companies; and there, to the general surprise, was the long w ished for. long worked Tor, long looked for ? anal, it is idle to say that the President, even then, should have gone to Nicaragua. He did not only the wise but the Inevitable thing in promptly recognizing the new gov ernment and entering into dealings with it. He saw the hand of fate, and. being not afraid, grasped It. Thanksgiving. The nation breathes today the spirit of a fervent thanksgiving. It is grateful for the blessings bestowed by Providence upon the land and the people, and for the dangers which have been averted. The man who proclaims at all times and in all places that the times are degenerate and that the coun try is on the road to ruin has no hearing to day. Optimism rules. And it Is a logical optimism, based upon the record. For it is possible to survey the year which has elapsed since last Thanksgiving and note many reasons for the expressions of grati tude which the country this day is uttering. I >ood health and good business have pre vailed. Morally, this great community is advancing steadily. Crimes and misde meanors there are. of course, in distressing frequency. But the factors which make for better living are more potent than ever. The higher standards of life have been widely maintained and the numbers of those Iin.selti.shly Intent upon bringing their fel "ws up to that standard are Increasing ? tar by year. The giving of thanks this daj is not confined to recognit;on of the material blessings which the nation has en joyed. In every place of public worship ? here will be sounded the note of gladness for the preservation of the doctrines of righteousness. If there are individual ? .uises for grief and regret, this day's in llueuces should act as a corrective. The fun damental principle upon which the great national institution is based is that of a cheerful philosophy. It serves as an an nual moral tonic, to drive away depression and despondency, and to enable men to see in the maze of life the threads of a good J :t I nso loading to good ends. The sidewalks of this city give evidence t'-at tile anti spitting regulation is not be lt g sufficiently enforced. There has been no case in court for weeks and yet the street* are freely bespattered. Have the policemen forgotten about the ordinance, or do they shrink from Interfering with the resumed prerogative of the spitter to fol 1 >w his own thoughtless convenience? Tlie public lias had a sufficient warning to war i ant a systematic enforcement of the law. ? a ? It is said that Richard Croker Is de i ous of xllowlng his polll.cil career to be for gotten. This Is a difficult ambition. All that i- nec essary to gel an idea of Croker s past is to look at Tammany's present. Besides answering a gre it commercial purpose, the isthmian canal may be very handy when It conies to turning the hose on Iwlligerent demonstrailo..s In Central -\ meriea. Mi Smoot is being assailed by the ladies of t he land on all hands, and ha seems to know I>etter than lo talk back much. Parsifal. v NVw York judge has rendered a <tecl moii w 'ii? h will permit the production at the .New V Ik Opera House of the Wagnerian ??Parsifal" in December. His denial of an m um. Hon ties the I -Mids of Krau Wagner s ?*'ttonie\s for the present, although it is an II.Hue -.1 they will press the case In Us reg ular .-..Ursa, and seek a permanent legal bar lo til, continued presentation of the opera and damages for those performances which are tn inwhile given. There is. however, little ? mm elation that the courts will inter fl 11 ' ?'?>' way. inasmuch as the right of the \: iican manager to produce the opera rests ii] on the publication In this country of tli. mil score, under an arrangement wiili i la- foreign publishers w ho bought the rights from Klchard Wagner himself. The friends ..f Krau Wagner did not seriously deu> tin- technical right of the American manager to produce the opera, but they claimed that certain sentimental reasons hIoimI in the way. and should be considered even by the courts in approaching tlie case. It w?^ i he dearest wish of the family of the git it composer, they asserted, that this opera should be reserved, of all his works, for M entation at Beyreuth, as a monu ment iii music to Wagner's memory. They )K>l!ileil out that he had sacrificed his all to the end* of art, and that this rueed should te permitted to remain. If the world wished to hear "Parsifal" let the world un dertake tho pilgrimage to the shrine of the master. One advocate of the Wagnerian position In thia -isa suggested that probably If Shakespeare had left Instructions by will that the play of "Othello," for instance, should never he produced save at 8tratford, as a periietual tribute to his memory, the world today would respect the limitation. This Is a violent assumption. It Is probable that the world would consider It9elf en titled. under the changed conditions, xo everything of Shakespeare'* and would proceed to help Itself. It Is Impossi ble to appreciate the sentimental reason for wishing an exclusive ownership over a masterpiece In order that it may remain a monument. The greater the publicity given to any work the greater it stands to the credit an<1 honor of Its creator. Physical monuments, paintings, pieces of sculpture and the like, of a fixed nature, cannot be dispersed to reach the people of distant lands. B'.it musical and dramatic art can be spread abroad, and It should be, and any effort to limit its range, whatever the motive, is contrary to the spirit of the age. Wagner's honorable fame as a great com poser will grow rather than diminish as a result of the American performance of all his operas. Beyreuth will not be the less of a shrine for his devoted admirers because the wonderful strains of his greatest of tone dramas have reached the ears of a multitude far beyond the seas. The House Committees. Speaker Cannon, we are told, will an nounce the House committees next week. They have been prepared largely from his own knowledge of members and from such additional information as he has felt Justi fied in seeking elsewhere. In all the minor ity assignments he has consulted freely with Mr. Williams, the minority leader, who. we may be sure, has given his best judgment in every case. This arrangement ought to work well, and to give us the House in action at its best. Nobody can doubt that the Speaker has placed the republicans where In his opinion they will do the most good for the party and for the country. He has been in Con gress nearly thirty years, and so long a service must have qualified him exception ally well to set a squadron in the legislative field. Nor can anybody doubt that Mr. \\ illiams has made his dispositions with equal care for fighting well the battle of the minority. The responsibility placed upon him by Mr. Cannon has carried with it an opportunity which in the nature of things Mr. Williams must have improved. \\ ill Mr. Cannon be attacked for conced ing so much to the minority leader. Shall we be told that he abdicated his functions; that he should have imposed his own judg ment on the minority as to committee places? This charge is invariably brought against the President, be he republican or democrat, when he takes outside counsel as to appointments. It is insisted that he should not divide the responsibility, but rely in every instance upon his own knowledge of men and conception of the case. Why should lie permit senators and representa tives and party workers out of office to Have a word with him about such matters? And the reply is not considered sufficient by the carpers that the President cannot have so wide an acquaintance among appli cants for office, and that when occasion calls for the recognition of the opposition, it is not only best, but a public duty, for | him to counsel with representative men of [ the opposition. Mr. Cannon's course is founded in good [ sense as well as in generosity. The country will profit by having both sides in the House on their mettle, and disposed to the best ndvantage. No sham battles, and no ! one-siil <1 arrangements. No cause for complaint after an engagement that the mi nority was not allowed a fair show for its white alley. Then, when all is over, the country will be assured that it got its money s worth both from tlie majority and from the minority; and if the "demnition total" is not entirely satisfactory the de linquents can be held to account at the next election. ? ? Gov. Cummins' Plurality. Official figures, just published, show that Gov. Cummins received in his recent race a plurality of 7!>,090. Rather a snug indorse ment. And yet we were told a few days after tlie election by the standpatters that the champion of the Iowa idea had had his comb cut. The country had heard the last of him and his fad. In heaven's name, whaf did tiiese people expect? Did they not know that the Iowa republicans had not been' blessed with a Tom Johnson as leader of the opposition? All they got at the polls they had to fight for in a legitimate way. The democrats passed nothing to them under the table. That eighty thousand plu rality represented, and represents, the sen timent of the people of Iowa on the propo sition which they have heard fully ais cussed that the Dingley schedules should be revised on protection lines and by the pat ty of protection. There is no room to doubt that fact, and we shall hear some thing on tlie subject from the next republi can national convention. Mourning for the Iowa Idea has been prematurely put on. The idea is not dead. It is not even asleep. Mixing the 'Phones. It is to be hoped that the next time the local telephone company opens a new branch exchange, necessitating a change of numbers and a shift of wires, the prepa | rations will be made sufficiently in season to reduce the attendant confusion and dis turbance to a minimum. Had the new boobs with the latest telephone numbers been ready and fully distributed on the day of the shift much of the difficulty ex perienced by the patrons of the system yesterday would have lieen avoided. It is, of course, no small task to transfer 2,500 instruments from one trunk line to another and to conduct the current business of the system simultaneously, and perhaps under all the circumstances the company did pretty well. But the failure of tlie books to reach the subscribers in season and the lack of a sufficient notice of the impending dislocation of the service contributed to what appeared to be an unnecessary degree of confusion and consequent ill temper. ^ t m Pugilist Fitzsimmons now runs the chance of being hissed when lie gives a boxing exhibition that is not brisk enough to suit the spectators. A few years ago such a lack of respect seemed Impossible. It is seldom that a statesman of the pres ent day embellishes a speech with quota-* tions from the classics. But quotations from the market reports are not uncom mon. ? When a hunter returns from a day's sport he is no longer questioned as to the game lie brings. It Is good form to merely congratulate him on not being shot him self. The American Federation of Labor sin-wed the same foresight tliat Congress invariably displays in leaving something over to be attended to at the next meeting. Governor O.lell's remark that reform Is needed in New York city sounds very much like something that has been said before. ? Panama will not allow the threats of war to deter it from enjoying a genuine Thanksgiving. Speed Violators. An automobilist was arrested the other day for violating the speed regulations and was permitted to leave the station house atier depositing five dollars as collateral. He failed to appear in tlie Police Court and his collateral was forfeited. His name Is known through the number of his license. Offenders who appear In court and defend themselves are fined from $10 upward to the maximum, according to circumstances. If now the polio* u? going to accept such small collateral a* In this Instance there wUl 3>e no reason to expect any further trials In court, save as occasionally soma automoblllst feels himself deeply aggrieved at his treatment and seeks vindication. As long as the present license law enables the authorities at any time to Identify and locate any automobilist there should be no such thing as a forfeit of collateral without consequences. When the amount taken In this case la compared with the usual fine It would Indeed be better If the police were to allow the offender to go on his own recognizances, with the assurance that If he failed to appear In court he could be easily apprehended. It is to be assumed that at each station house is a list of the automobile licenses, with corresponding names and numbers and addresses, so that any speed violator can be at once identified when taken Into custody. The new regulations should not be per mitted to fall into disuse or abuse through such practices. They were written In re sponse to an emphatic demand by the public that something be done to prevent this very thing of the escape of offenders from proper punishment. Now that the higher courts have upheld them It is the part of the police officers and the courts to give them full ap plication to enforce the rule that the streets are for the use of all the people and that there Is no room here for specially privi leged classes whose actions endanger the safety of others. The Boers who are striving to re-estab lish their farms and other enterpises can have the satisfaction of knowing that Oom Paul was thrifty enough not to need any pension. ? Mr. Bryan will have to argue a long time to convince Mr. Joe Chamberlain that It is the coinage question and not the tariff question that ought to be agitating Eng land. ??? ? It is not likely that the dispute between great capitalists will ever reach a stage where the consumer is called In to umpire. A number of nations feel sure that Rus sia ought to have a drubbing, but are un certain as to the way to go about it. SHOOTING STABS. His Explanation. "Why does people crowd Into the great cities?" asked Plodding Pete, as he looked up from the newspaper. "Dat's easy," answered Meandering Mike; "nearly everybody you see in de country wants to put you to work on a farm." "Sometimes." said Uncle Eben, "a man thinks he's devoutly thankful when he's jes' feelin' a low-down satisfaction in beln' luckier dan his neighbors." Preferable. A holiday is comforting. The busy world must surely like A time when all of us quit work Good-naturedly without a strike. Carefully Compared. "Don't you think your personal business is responsible for a great deal of lost time in your official capacity?" "My dear sir." answered Senator Sor ghum. "I have always found that it '9 easier to make up for lost time than It is for lost money." Criticism. "The man who played the ghost to your Hamlet didn't impress me as being at all supernatural." "He wasn't," answered Mr. Stormington Barnes. "He was a natural super." The Spirit of the Day. Turkey is a roostin' , Mighty high dis year; An' chicken Is expensive An' beef Is purty dear. But de rabbit will he runnin' In a little while f'um now. I hasn' got no turkey. But I s thankful anyhow. I hyahs de folks a tellin' How dey ain't a-ftelln' right An' I reckon I is lucky Jes' to have an appetite; An' de 'possum will be hangin' Very temptln' f'um de bough; I hasn' got no turkey. But I s thankful anyhow. Don't Borrow Trouble. From the Philadelphia Press. There are people who are already bor rowing trouble over the responsibilities and burdens which the United States will assume in accepting a practicsl protector ate over Panama and entering on the prompt construction of the canal. They conjure up visions of untold difficulties. If a nation were to be influenced by that tinlid and hesitating spirit it would never do anything. No great undertaking is ever projected without risk of obstacles and complications. The American people long since determined that an interoceanic canal should be constructed and that It should be under American control. That enterprise from the first has involved hazards, diffi culties and the possibility of complications. Had it been carried forward under the Co lombian treaty with divided authority it would certain!*- have presented delicate and troublesome questions. The Panama affair, instead of complicating It. has greatly simplified the problem ojmA made the pathway much plainer. ?? Historic Spots. From the Washington Pinuuelttl Keview. When Congress takes up In earnest the consideration of the needs of the District, so ably set forth in the reports of the pres ident of the Board of Trade and Commis sioner Biddle. the Iteview would call at tention to the lmi>ortance of some consider ation being given to the preservation of historic grounds around and about Wash ington. A plan for such legislation has long been in contemplation. The late Sen ator James McMillan, one of the best friends and counsellors the District has ever had In Congress, was fully alive to the importance of such legislation. ?? Meat. From the Kansas City Star. The condition of the meat market fully establishes the fact that the packers of the country are In a close, absolute and thoroughly operative combination to con trol the prices of live stock and meals, and that they do thus . arbitrarily, and, contrary to the spirit and letter of both state and federal laws, regulate such prices. ? e ? f Today!1 From the Philadelphia Press. - , .

One of the i>iineipal causes that produce this distressed condition Is Inordinate eating and drinking. Weakness of the muscles that propel the food to the intestines Is also a factor In allowing the food to accumulate In the stomach, and thus stretching It to enormous size. Constipa tion and Inactivity of the liver Is also a prominent cause. In this condition yoti usually find a coated tongue, thirst, loss of appetite, emaciation, oppression at the pit of the stomach, belching of fetid gas and vomiting of sour liquid, varying lu amount. Weak ness, paleness and waut of energy are usually rresent. Now, to overcome this distressing and dangerons enlargement of the stomach and all its symptoms, take Smith's Pineapple and Butternut l'ills today. They will give tone to the weak profiling muscles of the stomach and Intestines. They produce a natural movement of the contents of the bowels and avoid the formation of gas. which if retained produces symptoms of self-poisoning. Food long retained In the stomach and matter in the bowels show all the signs of putrefaction, when examined after the stomach pump Is used, viz , sour odor, bacteria, yeast, saccharine and organic acid, which are deleterious to the entire system. Smith's Pineapple and Butternut Pills cure con stipation as If by magic. They regulate the func tions of the liver, cleanse the poisons from the blood, remove the bilious elements from the circu lation and strengthen the nerves. If your eyes are clouded without an appreciable cause, if you have specks and floating objects before your vision, use Smith's Pineapple and Butternut Pills and get the poisonous elements out of your blood. Remember, they always core sick headache, constipation and biliousness In one night. 2S centa, all dealers. All genuine signed W. F. Smith.
