THE EVENING STAR.
WASHINGTON. WEDNESDAY December 30, 1903. CROSBY a NO YES Editor. THE EVENING STAR haa a regular and per. ?nanent Family Circulation mack atri than the combined circulation of tile other Washington dallies. At a News and Ad vertising Medium It haa no competitor. (ir In order to avoid delay a on account of personal absence, letters to THE STAR ahauld not be addressed to any Individual connected with the office, but alaply to THE STAR, ar to the Editorial or Business Departments, ac? curding to tenor or purpose. Brutal, Faithless Russia. Are American sympathies with Russia or Japan In the matter now In dispute between those two powers? Are they not with Japan? Why not? Are not our re lations with her wholly cordial? Have nut .ill our dealings with her shown her be thoroughly straightforward, frank In negotiations, punctual in keeping en gagements. progressive and humane In pnhlic policies, and a friend worth hav ing? Has any power in that quarter of the world, or In any quarter, shown a better spirit within the memorable period of the past half century? Her course has made for progress at home and friend ship abroad, and in her present conten tions with a mighty and ambitious neigh i??r why should she not have the moral support at least of the people of the I'nlted States? Japan does not trust Russia. Do we? (Ynnot we understand the distrust of a power which does not keep her promises, , oft repeated? Have we forgotten, should wi forget, Russia's course as to Man cliuria? According to express obligations on her part, she should today be out of Manchuria. Evacuation was to be begun October K. But not only has no move been made by Russia to withdraw, but opinion Is very gentral throughout the world that n<t:e will be made. Russia, according to the popular belief, is in Manchuria to stay. And her attitude toward the United States, no less than toward the world at large, is, \\ i at are you going to do about it? There may be an answer to that. Some n en of consequence in our affairs think that the answer should not long be delayed. Russia, in Manchuria means a barrier to American trade, where, under native In fluences. or under Japanese influences. American trade wculd soon be unhampered. We are seeking trade with all of China, and unless Russia is permitted to Interpose her strong arm the pursuit should be suc cessful. I Hut above the question of trade is the question of real civilization. The barbari ties and brutalities of Russian rule are well known. Russia's form of government does not make for peace, for education, for happiness, or for progress. Her policy toward the Jews Is hideous. The condition of millions of her people is appalling. Why, then, should any power occupying a place , arrong the advanced powers of the world 1 view with approval or even with com placency the extension of Russian bound aries and influences in any direction? The Y. M. C. A. Fund. The situation with regard to the Y. M. C. A. building fund is such today that no citizen of Washington, whether he has been closely Identified with the institution or not, can afford to Ignore the appeal for contributions. For the reputation of the capital city Is in a measure in the bal ance. The gifts of the outside philanthro pists were based upon the raising by local subscriptions of a by no means prohibitive sum. It should be possible to secure this amount, in view of the great benefits which the community would surely derive from an enlarged, properly housed asso ciation. But the process nas lagged some what until the last hours, and now It has been greatly stimulated by the fact that the time limit set by the givers from out of town Is very close at hand. The money is here and It should be given. It can be spared for this purpose as for no other. The man with a- family of children who gives to the Y. M. C. A. today is in vesting in the moral uplift and the perma nent betterment of Washington and all Washingtonlans. He Is aiding in the proper upbringing of his boys. It will be a great pity, almost unthinkable, if the benefits of the proffered gifts are to be lost because the community has not done Its duty. Give today because tomorrow is the last day. and the day after tomorrow will be too late. De Arrnond on the Wing. Representative De Armond of Missouri, an able man and a good democrat. Is ad vertised aa one of the speakers at the din ner of the Jacksonlan Club of Nebraska to be given Friday night, January 1, at Omaha, and as one of the speakers at the Cleveland-McClellan dinner to be given In New York Monday night, January 4. Shall we hear from him from both places? The distance between the two towns Is great, but not greater than the difference that for several years has existed between the democracy of Nebraska and the democracy of New York. Still there are fast trains running between the two towns, and a spirit of accommodation running between the two democracies. Maybe Mr. De Ar mond can keep both engagements and make himself agreeable on both occasions. He has been training with the Nebraska dem ocrat-. and been a blue-ribbon boomer of Sir. Bryan, but he may have seen a new light tnd may be able to show It to others. Mr. De Armond Itearing an olive branch from Omaha to New York will be a ligure almost as attractive as Mr. Cleveland him self. One of the discoursing features of a southern American revolution Is the ex tensive assortment of I. O. U's the new tie id ? the government Is likely to find in the ( drawer. The Skaters. The ' 'ommlssioners' decision to break up the k in the tid.il basin as a precautionary nieas ie against possible disaster is to be comm tided by the entire community. Even thoug this action does deprive the skaters of thi r best opportunity for sport at the present time, the destruction of the ice should be viewed by them as in their own behalf u.d for their own welfare. For last winter's catastrophe at the basin clearly pi ov? that the ice there is not to be trust ed. and that as the arrangements of the shore i i\v are the percentage of danger is very high. If the basin walls were pro vided it frequent Intervals with broad steps t<> tie water's edge, and If at those places g.ingv. iys properly broad and long were arranged to yield free and easy access to and from the Ice surface, there would" be comparatively little risk In the use of this akating place, provided the area where the lee is weakened by the inflow of warm water from a sewer discharge pipe Is fenced off or otherwise kept beyond the reach of the intrepid, danger-courting skaters l'n til sir h provision for entering and leaving the i? ? is made, however, and as long as this soft spot remains unguarded, the basin Is to be shunned. Only by the appropria tion of a large fund by Congress for re constructing the seawall can the skaters of ** asl.iugton hope to secure this accommo dation. It is to be greatly deplored that there is not a sufficient police force or a sufficient undisputed authority on the part of the Commissioners over the tidal basin, or any other skating area, to keep the skaters off the lc? when It !? regarded officially as dan gerous. The authorities have no such diffi culty In New York as here. There the t>killing la practically all done on the lake In the upper portion of Central Park, and so well disciplined Is the public that not a Mingle skater will venture upon the Ice If the red ball has not been hoisted as a slgnfe.1 of safety. When that ball is up the fact is advertised throughout the city, on the street car fenders, in the newspapers and In the windows of the stores which deal In skates. Then begins the advance upon the park, and while thousands use the Ice there is no undue crowding at any point and the skaters are at all times unhesitatingly obedient to the suggestions and the orders of the policemen on duty. In consequence there are no accidents worth noting and the public always feels confident. Good, firm Ice does not form so quickly here as In New York, and therefore, al though most Washlngtonians are great lovers of the sport, there are fewer oppor tunities to Indulge In it. This probably ac counts for the often unreasonable eager ness of the skaters to venture upon danger ous places and their Indifference to and disobedience of official warnings uttered in their own behalf. As long as this spirit continues It will remain necessary for the Commissioners to continue to destroy the Ice In the tidal basin and to do all in their pewer to persuade the skaters to use the smaller pond on the north. It Is to be hoped that eventually Congress may see Its way clear to provide for the necessary changes In the seawall to render this area, which is so conveniently located and in general so satisfactory a skating place, as safe as it is possible to render a deep-water ice surface. The Battle of Capitol Hill. Is Mr. Hearst to be Mr. Bryan's legatee? Will the Nebraskan upon his return home throw his Influence in favor of the New York editor for President? Mr. Bryan is not a candidate, and Mr. Hearst is. The two men agree about many things. No man has given Mr. Bryan more loyal support than Mr. Hearst. Is It true In politics, as in other things, that turn about Is fair play? And has Mr. Hearst's turn come? The Star mentioned yesterday the sugges tive fact that while Mr. Hearst has practi cally been Ignored In the arrangements for the Cleveland-McClellan dinner to be given in his own town, he has been remem bered in those for a dinner to be given away out in Indiana at which Mr. Bryan is to be the principal speaker. We may turn then to this town, where Hearst clubs are springing up and are being re cruited from the ranks of those who since ISiKt have been known as Bryan men. Does the Impression prevail here that with Mr. Bryan out of the running, the proper caper for those who have followed him Is to fall In behind Mr. Hearst? And shall we wit ness the spectacle of the delegation from the District of "Columbia marching into the next democratic national convention, not under the colors of the senator from Mary land. a next-door neighbor, but under those of a representative from New York? How things have changed within the psyst few years! There was a time w.hen Mr. Gorman was accredited with carrying the District democracy in his pocket. Certain It was that his praises were on every demo cratic tongue, and his word was a sort of law. But then came the party split over the tariff bill, wlth.Mr. Gorman leading one faction and Mr. Cleveland the other: then the nomination of Mr. Bryan for President on a platform of which Mr. Gorman did not approve, forcing him to appear to be supporting a man whose defeat he really desired, and, ever since, the? Maryland sen ator's fortunes have seemed to ba on the wane in Washington. Very recently Chairman Jones settled the long standing contest over the District va cancy on the national committee. The Gor man men sincerely hoped that Mr. James L. Norrls. Mr. Gorman's faithful lieutenant, would be appointed. Mr. Jones and Mr. Gorman are very intimate, but the pressure was evidently too strong againat Mr. Gor man, for, Instead of Mr. Norris, whose ap pointment would have been a distinct Gor man victory, Mr. Sefton was taken. Mr. Jones found it necessary to choose a com promise man. Is it to be a fight to a finish? Are the Bryan-Hearst men resolved to defeat Mr. Gorman In what was once one of his strong holds? And can they do It? Are we to witness In this town a battle royal for local party control, with one faction Intrenched In the Senate wing of the Capitol and the other intrenched In the House wing? Aguinaldo as a Commissioner. A movement is under way in Manila on the part of the Filipino officials and busi ness men to secure the appointment of Emillo Agulnaldo as one of the world's fair commissioners to St. Louis from the islands. Governor Taft has already ap proved the appointment of forty-three com missioners, but several places remain va cant. one of which, it is believed by his friends, the late head of the Insurrection ary government would satisfactorily fill. This proposition is worthy of considera tion. Aguinaldo has now definitely passed the stage of probable rebellious activity. As far as reports are to be trusted he is no longer considered by the native element as a typical leader. He has taken the oath of allegiance. Is rated as a good citizen of the islands under the American sovereignty, and Is evidently conducting himself quietly and altogether to the" satisfaction of the American administrators. A tour of the United States would prob ably eradicate from Ills nature any lurking j germs of hostility to or suspicion of the I new regime. Agulnaldo would carry back j to his people much of benefit to them. He would help measurably to elevate them to good citizenship by narrating his expe riences. He would be received cordially, though perhaps here and there with some unpleasant signs of unthinkingly rude cu riosity. He would prove an interesting item in the fair Itself. Madam Melba is to sail for Kngland. The ability to transpose American money Into shillings, francs or marks is an essential part of an operatic performer's education. If a trust manages effectually to corner the ammunition market, some delicate moral questions may arise as to the re sponsibility for further warfare. Cripple Creek Is not receiving much pop ular encouragement in this revival of the desperate traditions of the old-fashio'ned mining camp. -?? Russia and Japan both profess to want peace, and at the same time each desires it understood that there is no objection to war. When a purchase of exceptional magni tude Is recorded the name of Morgan or Rockefeller Is pretty sure to figure in It. Tammany and Clean Streets. Tammany Is going to try to keep the streets of New York clean, at any rate, whatever may happen to the purse and the morals of the big city during its two years of administration. The mayor-elect. It is reported, has set Ills foot down squarely on the proposition to turn over the department of streets to one of the "gang." Dr. Wood bury, the commissioner named two years ago by Mayor Low. has kept New York so clean and with such comparative economy that the. taxpayers of the city feel they have received really honest service. They were given an idea of what could be done by a conscientious administrator while the late Colonel Waring had charge under | Mayor Strong, and his displacement in favor of a Tammany leader gave the me tropolis occasion bitterly to regret the pass ing of the reform administration. As soon as McCleilan was elected there was, of course, a hot fight for this commissioner ship, which, besides paying a large salary to the Incumbent, is one of the fattest In the matter of patronage in the whole city gov ernment. One of the faithful, named Keahon. was slated for the Job by Leader Murphy, and he had begun to distribute the subordinate plums among his friends and followers when he was shocked beyond the power of speech by the intimation that the new mayor might after all retain the old Low commissioner. Now the Intimation has settled Into a practical certainty, and Mr. Keahon has retired In a deeply hued cloud of profanity and disgust, consoled only by the suggestion that If Dr. Woodbury does not keep his department free from criti cism the place will after all be passed along to a true son of Tammany. Now Mr. Kea hon and his hungry friends may be expected to serve henceforth as a self-appointed com mittee of scrutiny and criticism. Dr. Wood bury may as well brace himself for a stren uous experience. And perhaps It will be well for New York that the Tammany ap preciation of cleanliness is to be sharpened thus by a little office hunger In the sight of such abundance. The fact that a referee stopped a prize fight In California to prevent the death of one of the contestants shows the great re sponsibility resting on this functionary. And yet a referee is not usually selected because of his medical or anatomical knowledge. ? > m It begins to look as If a strike had come to be regarded by a number of peo ple In Chicago as a form of amusement which Is the more exciting because it is dangerous. Mr. Bryan declares that his views on the subject of silver are not changed. Mr. Bryan s business is revising the views of other people rather than his own. The weather bureau will possibly wel come the approach of steadily cold weath er, when prediction is comparatively plain sailing. Mr. Gorman may awAe some morning to And that the color line as a political issue has very little better standing than the sil ver question. Skating is fine sport; but every precau tion should be taken to prevent it from fig uring In the obituary columns. Panama Is evidently Inclined to follow the example of an eminent man in Ameri can affairs and stand pat. SHOOTING STABS. Convinced. "There's one thing that I can say about my daughter," said Mr. Cumrox. "She has a fine disposition." Have you known her to meet any severe tests?" "Yes. The way she can alt and listen to herself playing the piano shows that she must have extraordinary patience." Similarity. Another year! And like as not 'Twill be Just like the old. And some of it will be too hot. And some of it too cold. An Idea of Success. ? "Have you ever done anything with that speech you once threatened to deliver, at tacking certain corrupt methods." i es, ' answered the cold-blooded politi cian. That was one of the most success ful speeches I ever composed." "But I never heard of its being deliv ered." "That was the beauty of it I was per suaded not to deliver it. It was In this fact that Its possibilities of profit lay." "Experience may be a good teacher," said 1 nele Eben; "but by de way you hyuhs some people tellin' 'bout deirse'fs you wouldn't guess dat experience was as keer ful 'bout de facks as a teacher ought to be." Confusing. "So that heiress married a titled for eigner." "Yes," answered Miss Cayenne. "How do they get on?" "It's a little confusing as yet. Whenever she wants to know who the distinguished members of her family are she has to ask him. And whenever he wants to know how much he is worth he has to ask her. 1903-04. I made resolutions and thought they would last Through Nineteen hundred and three. But they proved Just like those I had made In the past. As fragile as fragile could be. But I'll never say die, and again I will try, Though it's getting to be quite a bore. Those same resolutions again I'll apply To Nineteen hundred and four. It's really dreadful the breakage to scan Through Nineteen hundred and three. They all went to pieces when once they began To tumble in heaps around me. But I've kept the long list of the vows I made then And I think as I am glancing It o'er, That I'll mark It O. K. and I'll use It again For Nineteen hundred and four. Ward Off Pneumonia. From the New York Tribune. There can, therefore, be no doubt that the micrococcus of pneumonia Is In the air ready to Heize upon those who carelessly or recklessly expose themselves to infec "on- Speaking broadly. It will be found that the main factor In the way of preven tion is to keep one's self in the best possi ble condition, mentally ai well as physi cally. Mentally, because depression^ fear and worry must be accounted agencies In creasing susceptibility to infection. The necessity of keeping in good physical con dition becomes all the more apparent when it Is stated that the researches of so emi nent a bacteriologist as former Surgeon General Sternberg and other investigators 8r2itoi-8l]?w that the eerm of pneumonia is able to live In the mouth of a healthy per son, whose lungs It may attack with fatal results should they become vulnerable as a result of catching cold. The Importance of avoiding draughts, of keeping the body and more especially the feet, well clothed and of freely ventilating living rooms does not require emphasis here. What is not so generally recognized, however, Is the fact that excesses of every sort, more espe cially the constant use of liquor, are no mean factors as contributing causes both to Infection and to mortality. It requires only a slight application of common sense to convince any thinking being of the rea sonableness of this, for the habitual use of liquor unquestionably Involves a drain upon one's vital resources and a resultant tendency to acquire and succumb to dis ease. Taft's Administration. From tbe Syracuse Post-Standard. The success that came to the American efforts in the Philippines during the brief administration of Gov. Taft has been lit tle short of phenomenal, and it reflects a double credit, part of which rests upon the American system of government and part upon the man chosen to direct the work. What Hoar Does. From the Providence Journal. Those who think that Senator Hoar will "come round" all right when the time to vote on the Panama treaty arrives may find corroboration of their opinion in a charac teiiration of the Massachusetts man once grlven by the late President McKinley. ' Senator Hoar," he said, "always gives the benefit of his views to the o?>posiUon and the aid of liis vote to his own party." 7X ^ftome^Made Freit 25c. lb.
