A Fight for the Child. Washington welcomes today delegates from all parts of the country to a national child-labor conference, which Is to last three days. The purpose of the men and women engage.) In this important cam paign Is to ameliorate the condition of the little workers in nil the trades and occupa tions. and eventually to secure their release from wage-earning during the years when they should be acquiring an education. This Is a noble effort, and deserving of the warm est support of all good citizens who look ahead to the welfare of the next genera tion. The working of children In mills, facto ries. stores and other places is bad on sev eral accounts. It is had for their health, to begin with. They are continent closely, often In the most debilitating atmosphere, some times engaged in positively harmful occur pations, at the age when they need exer cise nnd fresh air .and freedom from re straint. They are likely to be stunted In their growth, their systems weakened. They are robbed of their most prenlous heri tage. that of a sound constitution. Great advances have already been made along the line of improving the conditions under which children are employed, through the efforts of the organizations In the states and cities whose representatives are here In ses sion. When prohibitive laws are not yet possible, owing to the opposition of large Interests, the ameliorative work Is of vital consequence. The children suffer morally when they are t*ken out of their natural line of life and set to work at tender years. They are often herded in with adults of low character, whose language and conduct arc demoral izing influences upon the young minds. Many a character has been permanently wrecked by the evil associations formed in the early days of child labor. Smoking, drinking i<nd other vices are readily ac quired In such circumstances. This Is an Inherent evil. It is difficult to lessen it. The remedy fur It lies in prohibition, to remove the chlid h! solutely from these contami nating conditions and give it a chance for a wholesome career. Tho little wag. -corners suffer mentally when they are deprived of their schooling. They are thus handloipped trebly, their health menaced, their morals polluted, their minds stunted. They pay dearly in after years for the few dollars they earn as chil dren. They enter manhood and womanhood permanently handicapped for the race. The preferments go to the brighter, better-edu cated young men and women. The boy or girl who Is kept at school until after six teen at the earlies- and given a good Kng llsh education is fitted to jump into any business or trade and make headway much faster than tho dull-witted, feeblo-bodled. weak-charactcred ore who has started out In the money-making effort at the age of ten, or even younger. These are facts. They admit of no dis pute. The\ cannot be set aside by consid erations of expediency or a wrong concep tion of charity. To lessen the .'ight for let ter child-labor laws because of the fear that the poverty ifroblem may become more acute Is to temporize with both evils?that of child labor and that of poverty. Much of the present penury of the lower classes is due to the lack of education, and that in turn may lie traced squarely to the employ ment of little folks at the years when they should have teen learning. It is to be hoped that much good will flow from this Washington conference, per haps in the enactment of a model child labor law for the District, and surely In the stimulation of interest In this important propaganda. A Bossless Age? Or Spasm? Are we in this country entering upon what the political historian will describe as the bossless age? Are we going to hold fa^t to what fortune has recently given us ?the spirit to conduct our public affairs without the agenc les of corrupt men at the top. whose sole aim is to line their own Jackets with money filched from the peo ple? Or are we -imply having a spasm of lidignation a:.d virtue, to be followed by a relapse Into the old conditions of indiffer ence and sloth, when the bosses, who never rleep and are ::ot easily discouraged, will shoulder forward again and resume charge In the old way and for the old purposes? However this may be, Mitre is no doubt of the spirit now abroad. It is anti-boss on every hand, and with an emphasis that l?aves nothing to be desired. No man In office, or seeking offifalls to deliver him self on the subject la good, round terms. Every fellow considers that ho advances hlmse'.f In the pub I estimation by announc ing that ho wears no man's collar, and could not be Induced to put one on. It Is the day of Independence and self-rcspect, and th?re Is wide approval of the manifes tation of thoee qualities. As bosslsm reached Its greatest luxuriance in New York, the repudiation of it is the most emphatic and pronounced there. Both sides are voicing the new day and their purposes with regurd to it. Men put for ward by Murphy and McCarren on the city ticket in the recent contest, and elected, or counted In. as the case may be, are now openly proclaiming a disposition to be their own men In office. They pledge all to the state, and nothing to the floss. "Charley" sod "Pat," for the first time In their lives, are finding themselves out of the calcula tions of those they have raised to power. On the republican side we hear deliver ances of like tenor, and apparently of as great earnestness. Mr. Parsons, who is to be chairman of the New York county com mittee. objects to being considered either a Piatt or tin Odell man, and declares that he will know only tho organization's Interests, without regard to persons or factions. Can didates for the speakership of the state as sembly are announcing themselves in a new ar.d healthy tone, and asking to be considered on their personal character and standing. The general condition of affairs Is whole Pome and Inspiring. But will it last? The Insurance investigation continues to make people famous against their wills. Developing Foreign Trade. Senator Overman of North Carolina is of those who think that we need more mar kets. and that we shall not find them un 1V> we seek them and Inform ourselves as to the general foreign trade. For th!? pur pose he proposes the appointment of a commission of five members, with author ity to employ experts, whose duty It shall be to investigate the whole question of the world's commerce, with the view of ascer taining how much more of it than we now Wjojt could be ours by the making of a MONDtrated and Intelligent effort. He would have the commission alt three years, and would limit the expense of their labors to half a million dollars. In some observations on the subject Mr. Overman says: "It Is generally recognized that there Is a strong need of such a commission because of the poor showing made by our manu factured exports of raw material. The cot ton products of the south are increasing every year. The south exports more than 7,000,000 bales of raw cotton, which are manufactured Into cotton goods In England and sent btck to South America, where J52,000,000 worth were sold to Argentine alone last year. Why should we not get that trade instead of England? This com mission is intended to help find that mar ket." This one Item, bearing upon this very im portant subject, is vastly suggestive. As the North Carolina senator inquires, why should we not sell to Argentine this annual bill of goods instead of selling the raw ma terial to England, to be put Into fabrics there for our South American neighbor? And there are other items. There are a hundred others, showing how important it Is that we bestir ourselves If we may hope to take the place to which we are entitled In thl3 era of the world's strenu ousness and rapid progress. The spindles that now pre turning, both in the south and In New England, are turning to profit, and if our alertness can be made to keep pace with our opportunities we should at no very distant day be manufacturing near ly all, If not the whole, of the growth of our cotton fields. The best advances we can possibly make to our neighbors to the south are those of trade relations. That Is the solution of any difficulty that may now exist between them and us. The Monroe doctrine probably does not give them the uneasiness which. In the gossip of the press, is now and then de scribed. They are well advised as to our position on that point, but are not so well advised as to our ability to fit them out with the finished products they need from abroad. Enforcing Bad Laws. One of Mr. Roosevelt's firmest convic tions, to judge from his past performances, especially as police commissioner of New York, is that all laws should be enforced until repealed, and that a law that has-been allowed to die through neglect is a menace to tiie public good. While he served at the head of the metropolitan police depart ment he resurrected several such statutes, breathed life into them and put them Into effect, to the consternation of portions of the community. He was often quoted as saying that there was but one safe way to repeal a law, and that was by legislative enactment. Were it not for the frequent news para graphs in the local papers relative to cer tain court proceedings it might be suspected that the President thinks that the District smoke law is moribund and in need of en forcement. perhaps to the end of securing its amendment. His recommendations for much more severe penalties, if adopted by Congress, would certainly galvanize the statute into a mo3t amazing life, but Its active application would cause the death of all local business. The present law is far from dead. It i3 not even dying. It 13 in good health, indeed, so far as Its application Is concerned. That able sanitarian, the health officer, has saved it from an ignominious end by interpreting it arbitrarily. If it stood in attempted prac tice. as its letter Indicates, forbidding tlie slightest emission of dense black or gray smoke, with any sort of inspection corps to put It Into cffect, It would, with the penalties running as at present, render the conduct of business in Washington virtually impossible. And with the one-minute grace granted by the health officer, it is a bur densome. Inequitable, unevenly applied, im practical statute. The adoption of the President's recom mendations, without amendment, would cause such a serious state of affairs at the capital that the radical amendment of the law would be Imperatively demanded In the interest of the public welfare. Of the two evils, continued partial and Inequitable en forcement of the law as it is now construed by the health officer, and the application of the harsh penalties suggested by the Presi dent on either a one-minute or a no-emis sion basis, the latter would be really prefer able. For then relief would surely come, probably In the form of a sensible adjust ment of the prohibition to the requirements of business, coupled with such penalties as might be deemed wise to give the statute full and just bearing upon all offenders. There is. Indeed, no objection on the part of the progressive, conscientious citizens of Washington to the adoption of the Presi dent's proposed penalties for smoke-emis sion, provided the law is so framed that it becomes possible to obey it. There is no doubt that some of Un-cle Sam's representatives in the neighborhood of the equator feel that the pay-roll should be so revised as to permit a greater allow ance for Ice water and malaria medicine. When Senator Tillman finds things to ap prove In the President's message there does not seem to be much use In anybody's con tinuing to hold out. Might as well make the popularity vote unanimous. It will be no great hardship to some of the corporations to be prohibited from con tributing to campaign funds. They were not very enthusiastic In the first place. Popular Interest In the bicycle has disap peared, but New York can still get crowds to witness Its use as a test of the utmost possibilities of human endurance. A legislative fight over the Panama canal was long ago regarded as down on the list of things inevitable. It may as well come early. The Russian citizen's method of attacking graft Is as ineffectual as it is crude and sanguinary. A number of the bills now being intro duced in Congress are good old friends. David B. Hill's Valedictory. David B. Hill Is quoted as follows: "I am out of all active participation la politics, and shall never again get within the magic circle erf political Influence. I shall never attend another convention?dis trict, state or national. If I can aid my party by making a speech or two In a cam paign I may do so, but I shall never again do more than this." In some comment on the deliverance ap pears this paragraph: "This declaration from Mr. Hill Is gen erally regarded as being sincere, but there are thoee who believe that when the dele gates gather at the next state convention, whether It Is held In Albany or some other city, they will Instinctively turn to the 'Sage of Wolfert's Roost' for counsel, and that no Important nomination will be made without consulting him." It Is difficult to associate Mr. Hill with the role of leader emeritus of his party at home. He Is a veteran only in point of length of service, and still retains the force and fire and shrewdness which character ized his fighting days. He was born with the scrapping Instinct, has developed and indulged It all his manhood years, and ? at sixty-flve, with vigor unimpaired and some natural scores to settle, he does not belong on the shelf. Rather la his proper place still on the firing line, directing the forces and keeping the other side on the jump. It Is true, however, that this man, who has done so much to warn his party against trouble and fought so bard In tbe effort to rescue it after It had got Into trouble, has had but a meager reward for all his pains. National leadership has been denied him, and even his local leadership *u often dis puted while It laated. Traduoed hy the Cleveland peopla and harried hjr tha Croker people, he waa kept between hawk and buszard for years, until at la?t hla patlenoe gave out and he retired In undisguised dis gust. Still, with some years of *0od fl*ht In him, he Is not going to enjoy the future he mapped out for himself. When the bugle sounds and the hosts march past, the old war horse will And It difficult to stay inside the fence. Mr. Hill, unlike his great preceptor, has trained no youngstera for the public service. Mr. TUden kept a aort of school, and Mr. Hill was his brightest, as he waa his favorite pupil. Lamont, and a great many others, who afterwards figured In New York poli tics, learned their first, and many of their mo?t important, lessons at the feet of the sage of Orammercy Park. But with Mr. Hill the old school disappears, and the New York democracy passes Into new hands, whose methods have yet to be proved In the fires of experience. Now that motor cars are to be placed un* der the supervision of the Interstate com merce commission the man who wants to be safe may have to take along a lawyer as well as a chauffeur. It seems odd to suggest a salary of J3.000 a year for the superintendent of a national bureau of life Insurance when $100,000 Is an ordinary salary for an office In one of the companies. It Is most unfortunate that the careers of some Russian officials should seem to sanction assassination or any brute violence as a means of vengeance. It Is not quite clear whether the discon tinuance of passes by railways la to be re garded as a threat to legislators or a prom ise to the general public. The army cooking school seeme to indorse the wisdom of the epicures who declare that biscuit may be more deadly than bullets. SHOOTING STABS. Mild Sarcasm. "I suppose you have some original Ideas that you would like to offer In Congress?" "No." answered the new member, "I have been observing closely and I perceive that the man who seeks to be original In this august assemblage immediately stamps him self a novice." Of Equal Importance. "Which do you think we had' better make," said one Russian official, "threats or promises?" "Whichever you choose." answered the other. "The people are paying just as much attention to one as to the other." A Serious Disagreement. Oh, dove of peace, your wings uplift. And show us by your kind devices A reconciliation swift 'Twlxt Christmas pocketbooks and prices. "Once in a while," said Uncle Eben, "you'll hear a man sayin' he regrets his past, when de fact is dat he's afraid of his future." Endurance. "Are you capable of enduring toll, self sacrifice and personal discomfort in your determination to accomplish something you have set out to do?" inquired the man who gives advicc. "Yes," answered the youth. "I can con scientiously say I am. I once colored a meerschaum pipe." The Dawn of Gentleness. When foot bail is at last reformed By national decree. Let us not rest, tout still toil on Toward things that ought to be. I.et's regulate the bargain throngs That madly surge and press And lure the temper feminine To anger and distress. I.et's regulate the crowds that climb On the suburban car And push their elbows in your eyes And leave full many a scar With their umbrellas used for spears As the redoubt Is stormed. There may be hope for e'en these things If foot ball Is reformed. Farmers Becoming Business Men. rrom the LouisrUle Courier-Journal. Viewed from all sides, farming is a great business. And It Is as a real, live, sub stantial and serious business that the farmers should regard and conduct their affairs. Fortunately, system Is rapidly rev olutionizing the business. In the golden northwest the successful farmers are man aging their estates like great manufactur ing plants. There are no leak*, no slipshod methods. They are piling up magnificent crops and are making fortunes. Down ou? way, through Kentucky and the south, too, the farmers are beginning to look upon their occupation as a sure-enough business and not as a speculative pastime. Oyama and Togo. From the New York Tribune. Home from his wars, the veteran Marshal Oyama Is fittingly received with all the pub lic honors grateful Japan can bestow. These are comparable only with those given a little time ago to Admiral Togo, the voice of the Island empire saying to the latter: "Mighty Seaman, this Is he Was great by laud as thou by sea." Higher praise could not be given to either, and, unlike their illustrious prototypes, they both receive It in their lives, and not "to the roll of muffled drums." Dregs of Misrule. Fro!ii the Philadelphia Ledger. The horrible state of the Schuylkill water, since the autumn rains washed down new clouds of culm into the dirty stream, ex cites renewed Impatience and may well ex cite renewed Indignation at the dishonest maladministration that haj# kept a supply of filtered water still an unrealized dream. Cigarettes and Beer. From the New York 11*11. A Wilkesbarre judge has decided that cigarettes are worse than beer. Some cigar ettes than some beer, your honor. Objec tion sustained. Cannon. From the Springfield Kepubllcin. "Economy" is said to be the watchword of the coming Congress. But who will watch the watchword and keep It ltj sight? The Serpent in Eden Again. From the IMttiburg Gaiette. Mark Twain has recently revived both Adam and Eve for literary purposes, but has not yet threatened to raise Cain. Those Good Old Days. From the Princeton Clarion-News. With a bumper corn crop safe, and prices of farm products ruling strong, there Is no longer any need to revert to the "good old times." The average farmer considers the present times good enough for him. The man with a bad liver. Is, of course, not average. The Longest. From the New York World.
