S.rnator Stewart's bill increasing the sal
ary of the President to $100.000 a year, that
of the Vice President to $20,000, that of the
Speaker of the House to $20,0(K, and the
salaries of senators, representatives and
delegates in Congress to $10,000. while not
likely to become a law by act of this Con
gress. Is reasonably certain to revive the.
old discussion of the pay of high public
officials. The figures are large, and Tom
Watson and his friends may find in them
a text for some Interesting talk.
The public, we are told, must keep pace
with the times. If it would secure the
s-rviees of the beat men it must pay them
well. Salaries attached to important pri
vate employ'ment are high. Living is ex
pensive. The public official has a prescribed
and recognised state to consider and main
tain. All of this should be taken into ac
count, and his pay fixed accordingly. The
right sort of man should not be skimped
in his living or in reward for his labors.
It is contended, on the other hand, that
money reward should not be emphasized in
the matter of the higher places under the
government. Men should not be encour
aged to seek them on that account. Great
honors go with them, and they are above
price. In the case of senators and repre
sentatives in Congress they are not con
fined to their salaries, and the representa
tive is occupied in Washington but about
nine months out of the twenty-four for
which he is elected. He has all the rest of
the time for his law practice, or his private
Whatever the weight of the argument
may be as respects political places, there
seems no good ground for disputing the as
sertion that federal judges of the higher
-grade are not as well paid as they should
be When they take office it is for life, and
their whole time is given to the govern
nent. That Is to say, they abandon all
other active employment for pay. If they
have a source of revenue besides their sal
ary it proceeds from private means in
t"ested at the time of taking office. But the
world, with its professional and money
Inaking opportunities, is behind them for
good and all.
This whole question has been repeatedly
discussed, sometimes calmly, sometimes
with passion, but the general proposition
remains about the same, and Mr. Stewart's
bill may serve to bring out all the old points
again. The Nevada senator, who is on the
eve of retiring from office, has no personal
ends to serve.
Death Traps in the Suburbs.
Yesterday's fatal grade crossing accident
at Riverdale. Maryland, a few miles beyond
the District limits, is the latest proof of the
dangers involved at all hours at these ex
posed points. The crossing is frequently used
end the only safeguard against accident is
an electric gong, which automatically
sounds upon the approach of a train. It is
claimed that It did not sound in this In
stance. But whether It sounded or not, It
Is an insufficient precaution. There should
at least be some form of barrier at every
ormr of these suburban crossings. which are
only in slight degree less dangerous than
those in a city. It is deplorable that the
states do not all require the total elimina
tion of grade crossings in the country as
v.11 as in the city. The expense of such a
r"form might seem large at first, but com
pared with the cost involved in the main
tenance of the death traps, in terms of life
lives, property and money damages the in
vestment would be a good one. Not until
the trains are so run that they can never
strike other than deliberate trespassers
tpon the right of way will there be safety
In either country or city. The capital is
now engaged in a costly process of grade
crossing elimination within the urban limits,
and there remain h within the District
and in Maryiand a large number of sub
tirbasn crossings which are quite as deadly
in th~elr menace to life and limb as those
now passing. It is to be hoped that if the
railroads themselves do not undertake the
c'ure of these evil conditions both Congress
and the states adjoining the District will
shortly begin proceedings to compel the
elimination of all crossings at grade, wher
ever located.

Inauguration Day.
iays the Boston Transcript:
"So the inaugural ball will be a sort of
Cinderella affair. cloising at 12 o'clock be
cause it is to be held Saturday night. Which
abiouldl prove another plea for having the
date of inwaguration changed to a reason
more propitious for all who play leading
J;arts in it than early March is apt to be.
If it doesn't rain there are pretty sure to be
cill bilasts, lying in wait for those who
must ihe on parade out of doors on that day,
-and these play the mischief with voices and
fi.ery. And now to know tihe last function
oin the program is to be brought to a close
at the hour when such festivities properly
conducted are just beginning makes it seem
that i'residlent Rtoosevelt's inauguration day
isnt't going to be as brilliant as he would
like to have it. Never wasn President better
4quipped as far as temperament and popu
lar backing go to change the day or to
nakme gih' day when he will be inaugurated
tlh:an the present chief ruler, and If he
dosn't see fit to bring about the reform it
will probably be many a generation before
it will come to pass."'
Thber.' is no apprehension that the inaugu
ral hall will lack in brilliancy or be pro
dumctiv' of any less pleasure than formerly
teuse it must perforce close as to certain
oi its f.'atures at midnight. It is the ful
.speta:tion of all who are now working in
in "paration for the event that there will be
a. b.trge. an attendance as though the ball
re.eptiton were to continue until 8 or 4
o'cloc'k. and that every one will feel per
f.ctly satisfied. In point of fact, only the
dancing. which, as already stated in The
Star, is a negligible factor at inaugural
.hlls. will cease with the hour of 12, and
II .re are many who will welcome its cessa
a. for the Transcript's suggestion that
tI h S :stlurday-niight problem is an argu
mEnut 'in favor of changing the date of t,he
iusuural to a more propitious season, that
i.' sumewhat of a puzzle itself. It is unot
e .y to see how it is possible permanently
to. av.ui the Saturday-night trouble by

Nor is it easy to fplow the Tamerigt*
suggestion that the PresMint - ig lust the
kind of man to change the dat. 1e 1
undoubtedly just the'kind to advocate the
change strenuously, to use hb own word,
and to fight to the last ditch for the shift
in the national calendar. But it is not in
his power. Congres aloie can take the
initiative and do the work necessary to
meet the already loudly voiced demand
from all the states that the date be
changed. This community has striven
early and late for many yeaa to secure
legislation. It has succeeded in drsting
an interstate organization, which has pre
sented a memorial to Congress. But be
cause there are certain Incidental ques
tions to be answered and problems to be
solved, Congress balks at tle task and the
matter awaits that adjustment which com
mon sense and ordinary precaution de
It may be, and It is to be hoped, that
President Roosevelt will add his voice to
the chorus, that he will lay the matter be
fore Congress in a message which will fo
cus to a burning point all the arguments
for the shift. But that is all he can do.
He might, of course, arbitrarily refuse to
countenance all the unofficial ceremonies'
now scheduled for March 4 and Insist that
they be held at a later date. But he knows
as well as does any other citizen that such
a program would result in the total col
lapse of all the plans for making the In
augural memorable.
Mr. Roosevelt must take the oath at noon
March 4 next in order to become President
of the United States in accordance with the
will of the people, for If he does not do so
there will be an interregnum causing inex
tricable confusion. He cannot merely take
the oath and have the parade and the ball
later unless he assumes the role of a czar
or adopts the policy pursued in Ingland
when the new monarch is formally invest
ed with the outward semblances of the
power already given to him by circum
stances and law. If the Transcript is
earnestly an advocate of a suitable date
for the inauguration it should address Con
gress on this topic and persistently and
vigorously protest against further procras
The South and Protection.
President Harrison of the Southern So
ciety of New York, speaking at the annual
dinner of the society eaten last night, said:
"The south stands for democratic virtues.
It stands for hospitality. It stands for
democratic liberty. It stands for tariff for
revenue only, and not robbery or extortion.
There are many things like these on which
the south is solid, and in those things let
us remain solid."
Mr. Harrison evidently had in mind the
old south when he referred to the economic
sentiment of that section. He was voicing
the old traditions, when the south was
almost wholly agricultural-was a vast cot
ton plantation, and took no aggressive in
terest in anything but cotton and slavery.
And yet, even then, Henry Clay, who was
an ardent protectionist, had a large south
ern following. Properly speaking, the south
of that day gave economics small thought.
But the south of this day has a very large,
and a growing, manufacturing stake In the
national game. She is spinning great quan
ties of her own raw cotton and enjoying the
protective duties on the finished product.
She produces large quantities of sugar and
enjoys protection on that. Her rice fields
are thriving on protection. And her raw
materials of every kind, coal and iron ore
in particular, promise her magnificent re
turns from the economic policy to which
the country is now committed.
Mr. Harrison has seen the south time
after time go to the polls and support na
tional candidates on a platform declaring
for a tariff for revenue only, but it was a
reaningless deliverance on her part. When
ever the pinch came in Congress she was
always ready for a dicker whereby she
would get her share of the protection du
ties levied. Louisiana never once forgot
her sugar. South Carolina never for a mo
ment forgot her rice. West Virginia, Old
Virginia, Alabama and Tennessee remem
bered with great and creditable faithful
ness their coal and iron ore. There has
never been a day since the close of the
civil war when a tariff bill framed strictly
and honestly on revenue lines could have
become a law by the votes of the south.
Mr. Harrison is a southern man at long
range. A permanent residence in New
York does not in this rapid and progressive
age contribute to the ability of even the
brightest men to weigh or influence south
ern opinion. The south is solid upon just
one subject-the negro. That subject has
been manipulated by her professional polU
ticians in a way to bar all open discussion
and discourage all Independent action with
regard to the live and really pressing is
sues of the day. So far as the tariff Is con
cerned the south's Interests require protec
tion-, and the south at heart Is for protec
Port Arthur.
It seems likely that Port Arthur will be
completely destroyed. The Russian resist
ance is extraordinarily stubborn, and It is
intimated that at the last mines will be ex
ploded which will flrrish the destruction the
Japanese have carried so far. Stfll It will
be possible to restore the fortress. The
work was all but perfect of Its kind', and
the plans. are known. A point of import
ance at the close of the war will be the fu
ture of thIs place. Had Russia hleid her
own on the sea It would have served lier
most valuably, arnd in the possession of any
power able to utilize Its advantages It
would be worth a great price. Japan san
nounces no purpose except Its capture and
control during the remainder of thie war,
but we may expect her to give the question
of permanent control high consideration
wh-en it is presented,
There mIght be an investIgation to ascer

ceptional degree of refinement.
Glen. Stoessel would be justifled In de
manding some information from headquar

The enthusiasm which attended the ele-.
tion of President Roosevelt warrants the
utmost zeal In assuring the brilliant success
of the inaugural ceremonies.
The crowds who jeered at Mrs. Chad xiek
in Cleveland accomplished nothing except
to cast a reflection on AmerIcan manners.
It Is certainly true that a congres=man Is

This Is a season when kindliness is at a
premiut, when good cheer is the inspira
tion of all and every person is supposed to
act charitably toward alIpthers. In no
wise can this spirit be more etlectvely and
worthily displayed than toward the store
clerks. They pre harried from early until
late by the persistent igquiries of vague
shoppers, who do not knor their own minds
and often seek expert advice as well as
goods. They are blamed for errors for
which' they are not entirely responsible.
They are held accountable for defective ar
ticles or materials- They are scolded if
they yield to their great weariness and an
swer tartly to some Impertinent remark.
They must be monuments of patience, tact
and information. They are as a rule
keenly grateful for a kindly word, for a
bit of helpful consideration and a little pa
tience on the part of the customer. They
cannot wait on everybody at once. It is
not their fault if the store management
hires an inadequate force of clerks or if the
patronage comes in a rush that not even
treble their numbers could accommodate.
Nor are they to be blamed if they fall to
pick out the very earliest comer from all
the crowd of waiting purchasers.
The Christmas shopper who delays is not
only running a risk of not getting the de
sired results, but is assuming a heavy re
sponsibility and running a chance of vio
lating the Christmas spirit in many ways.

From the Brooklyn Standard Unico.
Syracuse has taken up the crusade against
the spitters who defile the street cars and
every public place. The habit Is a- vile~one,.
and yet It seems difficult to stamp out. No
one using the elevated roads In Brooklyn
can fail to notice how frequently the ordi
nance is violated on the cars, where the
conductors never interfere, and- on the plat
forms and stairways outside, where condi
tions are so bad .as to be unisanitary. And
yet we hear constantly of demands for some
way to prevent the spread of tuberculosis.
Cannot our local transit managers, both
elevated and surface, stir up their conduct
ors, and brakemen, too, to enforce the rule
so conspicuously displayed on their cars?
