THE EVENING STAR.
WASHINGTON. TUESDAY March 29, 1904. CHOSBY S. NOYE& Editor tie inrars stab hm a taenia* ana ptrmuut Family Circulation much mot* than tk? eombUud circulation of the other WublBftoa dallies. As a Itva and Advertising Median it ha* no oompotltor. f la order to avoid delays oa account of personal aboeace, latter* to THB stab should not bo addressed to a*y in dividual ooaaected with tbe office. but simply to TEI STAJt, or to tbe Editorial or Baal neia Departments, according te tenor or purpoae An Adequate Bate Law Needed. The undertaking by Congress of the reg ulation of the telephone rates of domestic subsc-lbers only la no more logical than would be the distinct limitation of the statute relating to the price of gas to those who use It for cooking purposes alone, or for the illumination of wooden as distin guished from brick dwellings. Had Con gress. in framing Its gas-rate laws in the past, attempted to draw any distinction be tween the classes of gas users, and espe cially if it had reduced the price to only a small fraction of consumers, it would have been criticised severely on the score of leaving open a large loophole for the re couping of corporation profits. The busi ness men of Washington are today urging that this pending rate regulation shall, in common justice and for the statute's effect ive working, cover all telephones used Just as completely as did the law of 1898 of which it takes the place. They do not es pecially fear that the Chesapeake and Po tomac Company will take Immediate and extortionate advantage of the lack of a maximum charge for business telephones. They apprehend no raid on them In the very near future along this line. But they feel that it would be foolish to remain satisfied with the discriminating promise of a fractional regulation which only partially establlshes the congressional power of con trol, and leaves two-thirds of the field open to the company's own unrestrained de vices. For the writing of a residential rate only may serve to establish a prece dent which will be more or less difficult to overturn in later years. There is another difficulty about any sys tem of telephone rate regulation which ap plies only to a small fraction of the 'phones and leaves the vast majority unregulated. There are many 'phones which fall under both the business and residential heads, as where one maintains his place of business in his residence. Will such a 'phone be charged at the limited residential or the unlimited business rate? Suppose the tele phone company should at any time display a reasonable preference for construing doubtful cases Into the unlimited and out of the limited class. Would not the indi vidual subscriber have to make the ex pensive and annoying journey to the Su preme Court of the United States before he could effectively question the telephone company's decision in its own favor? Congress should in no case approach this subject solely from the point of view of what the corporation is willing to grant or agree to in the statutes The fact that it fought the legislation of 1808 in the courts and finally won a virtual victory by chang ing telephone conditions and eliminating the subject matter of the controversy, by no means precludes further legislative pro ceedings based on the rights of the people as modified by the reasonable right of the corporation to a fair profit. If this pend ing legislation Is framed solely with the view of writing into law the company's own desires there is little or no reason for writing any regulations at all. Thus far no argument whatever lias been advanced for not writing the business rates Into the law. There are many reasons, on the other hand, for doing so, and they are of a nature to appeal strongly to the con ference committee in charge of the District appropriation bill, If a genuine disposition prevail to secure at this session a fair, all e-nln-acing, effective rate law. The World and Mr. Cleveland. The New York World today reluctantly withdraws its nomination of Mr. Cleveland fur President, and is on a hunt for a good man. It leans to United States Judge Thayer, who has a satisfactory record on1 the trust question. It will, if necessary, sup port Judge Parker, although It thinks that the party could do much better. There Is a touch of pathos in this shake up. Things were running very smoothly for the World until the Supreme Court decided the North ern merger case. Then it was apparent to all that the World could not longer hold on to Mr. Cleveland. The decision was a triumph for Its principles and long-time contentions, and a sockdolager for Its can didate. The World could not consistently continue to boom for President the same man that James J. Hill was booming, and that all the trusts were pining for. Still the World's new position will not prevent it from supporting Mr. Cleveland if Mr. llill and the trusts finally land him at St. Louis. ? e ? Japan, like other nations, has all kinds of people in its population. Some of its in habitants were committing li ira-klri be cause fighting was delayed, and some are now being censured because they insist on I staying home and making money out of the war. When betting on horse races was "aboi l-lied" by law. the bookmakers merely adopted a new method, more advantageous to themselves. And It is hinted that tlio promoters of the Northern Securities Com pany are Just ns wise as the lK>okm.ikers. 0 Si Mr. Wilson's Suit. The suit entered yesterday in the District court to prevent Secretary Shaw from |>.i> ? Ing over the Panama car.nl money to the new republic or to the French rami com pany Is proclaimed by its mover lu be merely the act of an individual citizen who Isyinxlxus lest the constitutional props of Itie Cni'.ed State* tremble In their sockets threaten the collapse of the whole structure. This Mr. Wilson has coine all lk|e way from Hinsdale. 111., 'by way of Chl Wijo, w here lie has desk room, to assert the <v4?ienie rights of an American citizen. Of retirsv. he knows that he is liable to incur suspicion ar to his motives. There has lieen so Inuch lny-play and subterfuge and lobbying and corrupt practice In the whole of the long continued tight against the canal tliat any honest effort to secure the country from loss and shame and disaster is llkel) to be misconstrued. Therefore Mr. Wilson frankly acknowledges that he does not expect to be believed when he says, wltii Ids hand on his heart, tliat he repre sents nobody but himself, his own unpol luted, unselfish, patriotic interest lu the welfare of the nation. And. of course, when a man says anything like this he must be believed. Who shall stand forth and say that Mr. Wilson is right in Ills as sertion that he wilt not be believed and that not even his naive acknowledgment of his own unbellevabiUty Is to be credited? Shall tl.e rights of the citizen be thus as sailed by scoffers and skeptics? Are honest cltlsens to be kept out of the court for fear of the jeers of the suspicious? Not even the fact Jhat Mr. Wilson's office room mate out In Chicago says that Mr. Wilson has been receiving callers from Bogota of late can serve as a righteous excuse for doubt. Might not Mr. Wilson be so imbued with the seal of his outraged citlsenship as to soour the western hemisphere for evidence therewith to support his contentions in court? Why should he hide Ills light und>?r a bushel? Why should he not make It known to bleeding Colombia that he stands ready to illumine the whole foul record of her dismemberment in order that the rights of the American people may be preserved and their liberties defended?' Why should not gentlemen from Bogota call on him, if they want to. without Involving him In the suspicions of the thoughtless? Nor even should the fact that Chicago Is a railroad center and a distributing point for cross continental trade serve to suggest to up right minds that maybe Mr. Wilson is the pivot of a Joint maneuver by both the canal-less Colombians and the anti-canal railroad Interests. For Is not Mr. Wilson a comparatively obscure person In the world's economy? Who could ever pick him for a railroad attorney or a International lobby ist? Do the big corporations ever go gun ning for big game with a parlor rifle, or the foreign nations angle for whales with a bent pin? To be sure, Mr. Wilson might "serve" to delay the payments. Any man's suit is as good as another man's suit la the eyes of the law. Mr. Wilson stands as much of a chance to block the wheels of the canal digging machinery as would Mr. J. J. Hill or any palpable proxy standing up in court and crying "I forbid in the name of the Constitution." Mr. Gorman and the South. The effort to develop a southern candi date for the St. Louis nomination justifias an inquiry as to whether, in the political sense, Mr. Gorman may be considered a southern man. He was not. in sympathy with the south ern confederacy. During the civil war he was an officer of the Senate, and sympa thized with the Union cause. At the close of the war he accepted a federal appoint ment In Maryland at the hands of Andrew Johnson, a republican President, and held it for several years. It was not until Gen eral Grant took office that Mr. Gorman be came a democrat. Since then he has affil iated with that party. ' ? Although a leader in the organization. Mr. Gorman has never been in agreement with the southern wing of the democracy on *he two Issues which for so long have com manded Its attention. While the southern democrats as a rule were shouting for free coinage he was a sound money man. and when Mr. Cleveland attacked the purchas ing clause of the Sherman silver act in 1S*3 Mr. Gorman supported him.- While the southern democrats as a rule were shouting for free trade Mr. Gorman stood with Mr. Randall for protection, and In 1SSH made Ills position on that subject felt In a way that threw Mr. Cleveland Into a rage. And but very recently when the south wanted prompt and confirmatory action on the Panama canal treaty Mr. Gorman opposed her. It is on the race question alone, that Mr. Gorman is in sympathy witlf the southern democracy. And he tries to make up there for his antagonism on other ques tions. His defeat of the so-called force bill was easily accomplished. There were a number of republicans glad to see him win that flght. But In this suffrage con tention in Maryland he is going further than the men of the lower south themselves have gone. He has gone so far, indeed, that Gov. Warfleld, who has not desired to see the negro vote, refuses to follow him. In order to make sure of disfranchising the negro, Mr. Gorman would establish a partisan majority at every polling place, and subject the whole suffrage, white and black alike, to partisan rulings. Ordinarily, when It is proposed to go south for the presidential candidate refer ence is made to men who not only reside there, but whose activities on all political lines have been uniformly representatively soutliern. To that class Mr. Gorman, as his record shows, does not belong. There is little chance, owing to. the ar rangement of streets in this city and their width, of Washington's duplicating the con flagrations that have distinguished other cities. And there is no jealousy of their su perior facilities in this line. Russia's treatment of the flags of other nations at Nlu-Chwang will not prevent It from expressing surprise that there should not be a more general sentiment of friend ship for it. Sully is the latest example of the man who started out to be a Napoleon of finance, but who made the mistake of start ing at the Waterloo end of the program. The fact that Queen Alexandra ate a 9 cent meal has a picturesque interest, but does not imply any economical lntentloaa that will reduce the tax rate. ? ? ? ? As a candidate of the prohibition party. General Miles would at least enjoy facilities for expressing his mind on various topics of public interest. Australia does not want Elder Dowle. He will have to resign himself to the fate of being a local favorite only in Zion City. Water Waste. During the debate on the District bill yesterday in the Senate an amendment of fered by Senator Newlands looking to the ultimate metering of the domestic water supply was ruled out on a point of order. The bill gojs into conference with the ap propriation of J3.000 to ascertain the ex tent of water waste in the government de partments, made by the House, untouched and therefore certain of final enactment. If the Newlands amendment had been adopted and retained in the bill IS.000 would have been expended In all to eluci date the very point which it Is expected can be shown by a satisfactory process of elimination by the exi?endlture of ?M,"00. It is commonly believed here that the greater part of the water waste occurs in the government departments. It Is known that there Is little or no chock there on the consumption of water. There Is no law which punishes those responsible for leaky spigots or heavy water use for flushing out of certain hours. Millions of gallons. It may confidently be stated, rnn to waste in those public places daily. There is no disposition on the part of the other water users of Washington to quar rel with Cncle Sam for his lavish use of the supply. But the domestic users of Washington do object to being constantly accused, without proof, of extravagantly wasteful consumption. They do not relish being paralleled to their disadvantage with the residents of other cities. They are a cleanly people, highly appreciative of the abundant If not too limpid Potomac water supplied to them, putting It to its best uses for the preservation of health and the maintenance of a high standard of city at tractiveness. They are probably no more and no less wasteful than the people of other cities. If metered they would, of course, economize in their consumption, and the water thus saved would run to waste. There la no present difficulty In consequence of Ihe high rate of local wa ter consumption, and It Is the part of wis dom and justice to ascertain now, in ad vance of any such difficulty, just which of the two grout users of the water, the gov ernment or the people. Is responsible for the high rate of consumption. If the proposed tests and measurements should prove that the government uses a wasteful quantity of water it will assur edly not be in order to charge the people with an exorbitant use, and consequently there will be no ground for a general me tering system or any other method of re striction upon the popular use. If. on the other hand, the contemplated terfts do not show that the government Is wasteful it will remain to be seen whether the actual figures show that the people of Washing ton ure by comparison with those of other cities Inordinately extravagant In their ?water use. If they are Anally proved to be, then will arise the question of what to do to check the waste, and not until then. General metering or any other form of rigid restriction upon the popular water use should always be regarded as the very last expedient to prevent a famine or to forestall the necessity of vast additions to the impounding, distributing and filtering plant Korea deri > es very little consolation from the declaratio.13 that the war will never be allowed to proceed to an absolute finish. Whatever happens, the hermit kingdom wilt hrve to begin life anew. ? > ? Chicago's determination to keep a cash register account of the expenses of the Republican convention may be discreet, but it cannot be regarded as open-handed hos pitality. A large number of people in Russia do not know what the war is about, and some of them do not care much which side whips, either. Mr. Ware Is not afraid to write poetry. He knows that a commissioner of pensions Is bouhd to be criticised, anyhow. Judge Parker might say something If his industrious friends had left any new facts for him to communicate. SHOOTING STABS. An Exasperating Youth. "Father." said the small boy, "Is It wrong to say 'pants?' " "It assuredly Is, my son." 'Then the landlord ought to be ashamed of himself. He sent a notice to the oc cupants of the building instead of to the occutrousers." His Theory. "What will postertty think of you?" "Well," answered Senator Sorghum, "a man always has to take a chance on that. What posterity thinks of you is likely to depend entierly on the personal preju dices of some history writer." An Out-Door Tenant. Hasn' got no money But dar's flshin' in de bay An' de skies is blue an' sunny An' dar ain' no rent to pay. "Dar may be such a thing as luck." said Uncde Eben: but a man dat don't make no effort In dis world Is like a faller dat goes fishln' an' is too lasy to put bait on his hooks." The Test. "What do you regard as the test of a nation's culture?" "The willingness to pay Ave dollars a seat to hear me sing in concert." an swered the prima donna promptly. Incorrigible. Oh, Mr. Butterinsky?he's the man that spoils the fun; The man who always wants to show how everything Is done. He wants to make the world turn 'round and run the other way; He even steps the harmless little children In their play And tells them how to fly a kite or cause a top to spin. He also loves to tell you of a horse that's sure to win. And you feel your life Is wasted every time he comes along; He makes you think that everything yeu ever learned Is wrong. He's the unexpected bUrsard that destroys the bliss of sr>rlng; He's the Insect that embitters blushing fruits with ruthless sling. He's worse than old Mephlsto or the vil lain in the play. Because he always does his worst In such a jovial way. He's sorry if you're getting cross. He never understood Why people should resent his undertak ings for their good. And when the fray has started, you can hear above the din The voice of Butterinsky. still serenely butting in. Value of Coaling Stations. From the New York Tribune. One unmistakable lesson of this war is the need of widely and well-distributed coaling stations to a naval i>ower. Russia Is suffering severely, and fc likely to suffer more, for lack of them. Not long ago it was said that her squadron In the Red sea would remain there indefinitely, to in tercept Japanese ar.d contraband commerce. Then it was reported that It was going back to the Baltic. The reason was, of ccurse, that It could not get supplies of coal from neutral ports on the Red sea. If Russia had succeeded in her Abyssinian intrigues of a few years ago and had se cured a coalin,! station or. the coast near Obok, she might now easily bar the Red sea against all Japanese corr.nrerce and all commerce in contraband goods intended for Japan. As it is. she must withdraw her ships and leave the way open. The state ment that she will leave her torpedo boat destroyers at Algiers until July, when they will rejoin the fleet she will then send from the Baltic to Japan, is scarcely credible. Algiers is a neutral port, and is not likely thus to be made a base of belligerent operations. If the boats stay there until July they will probably have to stay there until the end of the war.

Supposing th.it Mr. Hearst gets the nom ination, the end of the year Is likely to find him wishing he had gone into the cotton corner, instead. ? * > Albany. IVom the New York Mall.

From the i'nlladei|ihla City and State. . "Don't clean your teeth with the city water in its present condition," is the latest admonition from the health authorities.
