THURSDAY November 1903.
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
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.
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

no case in court for weeks and yet 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.

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
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.

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

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.

consideration of the needs of the District,
so ably set forth in the reports of the pres

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.

Dilation off the Stomach
The gravity of enlargement of the stomach can
not be overestimated. 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
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
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.
