THE EVENING STAR.
With Sunday Morning Edition. WASHINGTON. TUESDAY January 16, 1906 CROSBY S. NO YES Editor TIE STAB has a regular and permanent Family Circulation much mora than the combined circulation of the other Wash' tag-ton dallies. As a Hews and Adver tising' Medium it has no competitor. trrin order to avoid delays on aeconnt of personal abeenoe, letters to THE STAB should not be addressed to any Individual connected with ths office, but simply to THE STAS, or to the Editorial or Busi ness Departments, ate01 ding to tenor or purpose. Democrats and the Tariff. Are the democrats willing to make a na tional campaign with the tariff issue in its general aspect stated in the spirit whlcti marked John Sharp Williams' statement or the issue as respects the Philippines? That is to say, are they willing to recognize ex isting conditions and shape their demands accordingly? if so they should be able to give the standpatters something of a tussle next fall. Mr. Williams was willing to take half a loaf rather than get no bread. He could see that a whole loaf was beyond his reach. A cut In the rates on the two important Philippine staples was as much as the oc casion made possible, and so he supported the proposition. He was equally opposed to those who wanted nothing done at all because of reducing the tariff, and to those who wanted nothing done because the proposition did not carry the wiping out or the tariff altogether. Mr. Williams stood upon sound, sensible ground. Now, thei'e Is nothing clearer than that protection as a policy is rooted in our sys tem. It cannot be wiped out. Cries going that far have all been discredited, either by failure at the polls, or failure to redeem by legislation a result at the polls which seemed to indorse free trade. There never was a more grotesque ending to a cam paign than that which gave the Gorman Wilson ^>ill as answer to the Chicago plat form of 18S>2. The men who as popular orators had In the fall of that year de nounced protection up hill and down dale, as legislators In the spring of ISiH found themselves utterly unable to get away from protection. It inhered in so many things they were obliged to recognize it, but had not the skill or the courage to apply it suc cessfully in their work. Suppose therefore the democratic leaders In their coming congressional contests should state their case in the light of these facts. Suppose that in advocating a lower tariff on articles able to stand it they make frank confession that It is not possible to tear down the customs houses, and that they are not abroad on any such wild-eyed mission, but want merely that equalization of duties made necessary by the business and pros perity of the times. Would they not profit by such a deliverance? Nothing appears more likelj-, for the standpatters are mak ing the republican position very objection able In many parts of the country. Warner of Missouri. Senator Warner Is by far too mod-?3t, and Jvst now is interfering with legitimate po litical speculation In discouraging gossip connecting his name with his party's next nomination for the presidency. A great con test approaches, and many there be who, whether they like it or not. must enter therein. The Nelson signal is flying. Writers for the press and their readers expect every politician to do his duty, and to serve in that sphere of action in which they may <be pleased to call him. Ger. Warner declares that his presidential boom is a joke. This must be because he has given the matter no thought himself, and is surprised by the suggestion from others. He has just entered upon his term as senator from Missouri, and. we may be lieve. Is gl%-lng his attention exclusively to the duties of that office. His election was a high compliment to his strength and popu larity at home, and naturally he wants to meet In the fullest degree possible the ex pectations of his friends. But why should the suggestion of his name as a Presidential quantity be regarded as a joke? As the case now stands the re publican nomination for l'.lOB seems likely to go west of the Alleghenles. The party's strongest men live in that quarter, and the merits of a number of them are under al most' daily discussion. It is a goodly com pany, and shows not only the resources of the republicans at this time, but the devel oping qualities of our institutions. There are excellent men all around us, and to spare. Now Hen. Warner lives out there, and In a state wliere republican national policies have for some years been growing In favor. He is himself the expression in the Senate of what those policies have recently accomplished in Missouri. His record as a man. as a soldier, as a politician and as an officeholder gives him a place among the representative men of the middle states, and to consideration in the matter of his party's high rewards. What of jest or in approprlateness can there be in including him in this day of preliminaries and ma neuvering among his party's presidential possibilities? He is a good man in a sec tion where his party is hunting for a leader. Let the Warner boom go on. Let all the booms thrive. He is a public benefactor who makes two booms grow where only one has grown before. Besides, In the matter of presidential candidates, he also serves who only is talked about. H. H Rogers cannot beMeve that an in fluential Standard Oil official should be compelled to show deference to a man who has not gotten on any further in life than an attorney generalship. It would be curious If Washington should run New York politics instead of letting New York assume to run Washington. The Liberal Landslide. The Itritish elections have developed into a veritable landslide. Not even the most optimistic supporters of the liberal party hoped for more than a sufficient success to give their party a plurality over the union ists, with the labor and Irish members co operating to afford a .ministerial majority. As the case now stands, there Is every rea son to look for a large liberal majority over all the other parties. Insuring it a fairly certain tenure of office for a much longer season than was predicted for it be fore the elections. Including yesterday's balloting, which materially Increased the liberal sittings In the house, the results now yield l>5 liberal seats, 31 unionists, 18 nationalists or Irish members, I" laborltes and 1 socialist. This means a margin of 28 liberal votes over all. The laborites and the Irish members together number more than the unionists. Thus far 162 elections have occurred out of 670, leaving 508 districts to vote. If the ]lt>eralft and their allies continue their pres ent rate of gain the house will consist of ool ministerialists to 110 unionists, but the effect of the sweeping victories of the pres ent ministry In the districts which have voted already appears to be cumulative, and it Is predicted that the conservatives, or unionists, will be fortunate If they secure 100 members. Not even former ministerial prestige is saving the candidates of the long-dominant party. Ex-Prainl<r Balfour was defeated In the first day's voting, a circumstance exceedingly fortunate for the liberals, for it gave their canvass an un mistakable impetus in the districts yet de batable. Other members of the Balfour ministry were snowed under yesterday. London affords a significant evidence of the strength of the liberal uprising. Of the twenty-two seats apportioned to the capital the unionists he'd twenty in the last house. London's record, indeed, has for years been almost unbrokenly that of a great tory con stituency. Yesterday the liberals captured fourteen of these twenty-two seats. These results, it seems, are attributed to the com pact organization of the labor vote, which is thrown to the liberals wherever there is no distinctive iaborite candidate. Analysis of the returns is of course as yet impossible, with satfefactory results, but enough appears to indicate that the over whelming defeat of the unionists is no less than a revolution, a tremendous uprising of the people of the middle and lower classes, irrespective of the specific issue defined in the campaign. The voters of England and Scotland want a change and are not de terred from demanding it by the prestige of a long-established ministry. It is con ceded that the result would have been the same had Balfour held on to his post and appealed to the country for a renewal ot his commission. The effect upon England's domestic and foreign policies cannot, of coursc, be now estimated. That fiscal and other reforms are likely is granted even at this stage. Home rule for Ireland is not Impossible. While the Irish nationalists will lack the power to dictate terms by reason of holding the bal ance of power, it is known that there is a strong undercurrent of popular sentiment in favor of that change on the part of the laboring classes, whose votes are one of the chief factors in the liberal success. The National Board of Trade. For years the National Board of Trade has been meeting in this city in annual session. It has discussed many subjects in that time and its recommendations to Congress have gone on file and have flowed into the current of public opinion which is constantly setting toward the Capitol to influence legislation. This organization, composed of representatives of local boards of trade, chambers of commerce and simi lar business bodies, stands for a concen trated expression of the opinions and de sires of these constituent associations. It represents, indeed, the beliefs of a very large number of citizens engaged in the practical work of the day, the management of great enterprises and affairs, the pro ducers of wealth. It occupies a significant position in the national economy. Recent changes in the organization have occurred, with the result that the present officials and leathers of this association are bent upon a new degree of activity. They are endeavoring to conserve, through the National Board of Trade, not only the busi ness sentiments of the country, and to bring them to an effective focus upon Congress, but to establish a high standard of civic health, to write large upon the tablets of American progress the principle of honesty in all private and public affairs. Taking warning from the recent disclosures of graft in many lines of activity, both pub lic and private, the leaders of this body feel that the time has come to -direct thought to the end of securing, through legislation or otherwise, more insistent requirements of character and conduct in ali lines of work. The program of resolutions to be con sidered by the National Board of Trade at this session is subordinate in interest to this new spirit of good citizenship which is voiced by the leaders of the organization. It has a wide field for manifestation. Gross selfishness has long dominated in the ad justment of American affairs. Political ex igencies have forced compromises with honor. The inordinate greed of gain has produced bitter fruits. The time has come for united efforts to establish in business and in politics, in all the details of munic ipal, state and federal administration, the principles of honesty and decency and right living. There is a wide field for any body of citizens, bent upon proclaiming the doc trine of righteousness in business and in politics. If the National Board of Trade espouses this cause with vigor It will serve a praise worthy end, and will contribute materially to the moral health of the country. There is urgent need today of some s>uch propa ganda for the rescue of our bedraggled ideals from the mire of conscienceless com mercialism and partisan politics. The Mill at Algeciras. If the lingo of the prize ring is pardonable in the premises, it may be said that the mill at Algeciras opens today, with Prance and Germany both in good condition. The bout is for points, and all the world is interested. The I'nited States?although no bird?is, in the current speculation, in two places at once. Paris sees us in France's corner, and Berlin in Germany's. As a matter of fact, we are in neither corner. We are only an observer, present in response to a polite Invitation, and. while hoping for fair play and a just decision, not in a recklesrs or belligerent mood, and not at all likely to be drawn Into any possible complica tions. While they are of course possible, why should there be any complications? Squeeze the water out of the gossip on the subject and the sum of the stock of this mill would be materially reduced. It is not a fight, but a contest for points. There is some complaint because natural historians do not stick to the truth in de scribing brute intelligence. But historians have time and again been caught romancing about human beings. Literature cannot be expected to discriminate in favor of the lower animals. After his opportunities for observing the unscrupulous manner in which food and statistics are dealt out to the public, it would not be surprising if Secretary Wilson became something of a cynic. Looking at the matter in a cold-blooded manner. It does seem that there could be a little more genuine humor put into the haz ing of Annapolis students. It will take a great deal of schooling to enable the natives of the Philippines to comprehend the relationship between beet sugar and tobacco. If all the hard-winter prophecies are to be realized there will have to be some formid able condensations of blizzard weather. It may be quiet for Mr. Fairbanks in the Senate, but excitement Is always at hand in Indiana. I)r. Harper's death from cancer, after the exhaustion of every known remedy and palliative agency, is a sad testimony to the fact that tills disease remains unconquered by modern science. Drugs have failed, the knife has failed. X-rays have failed, radium likewise has failed. Dieting seems to ac complish nothing. Consumption is no longer regarded as a hopeless foe to life. It is treated success fully in the earlier stages and some re markable cures in the later phases have been recorded. Outdoor treatment Is re garded as greatly helpful, and notable advances have been made In the preventive work through scientific sanitation. At the present rate of progress, through legisla tion, education and the dispelling of the unwholesome attitude of mind toward this disease, it Is qult? likely that a tew decades lie nee will find the world classifying con Cancer. sumption with the minor serious diseases, preventible and curable. The malignant, epidemic fevers, too. have succumbed in large measure to the advances of science. The germ theory of disease haB worked wonders in the classification and study of specific organisms and the dis covery of their antidotal remedies. Yellow fever, cholera, bubonic plague and other pestilential ailments of humanity have been at least placed in the category of possible prevention through the exercise of care In isolation and the use of disinfectants. Small pox is no longer rated high as a menace to public health. Tj ..hold, thanks to filtra tion and Improved sanitary supervision over the food and milk supplies, is falling stead ily to a small percentage in the list of causes of death. The great advances' which have bfcen made in a few years in the classification and successful treatment of these and other dangerous diseases leave the single obsti nate exception of cancer the more emphati cally a menace. Occasionally a theory of character, cause and method of transmis sion Is advanced, to be exploited for a time and then discredited. Now and then a "cure" is proclaimed, to arouse hope only to fail to Justify the claims of its dis coverer. Save for some few slight advances In the matter of palliative treatment, great er skill In the use of the knife in removal and the more effective administration of tonics, we remain where we were decades ago in this one line rff therapeutic re search. The twentieth century holds no greater possibility for science than the con quest of this dread affliction. City officials who have been deprived of passes will in many instances see that the railways pay the highest market rate for anything they get. No public man is as homely as his carica tures nor as good looking as the photograph he sends to an album of celebrities. Mr. George Ade's declaration that he will write no more slang may be due to an Im pression that he has written all there is.

"No." answered the easy-going citizen. "It Isn't exactly broken, but it'll have to lay up for about eleven months for re pairs." The Voice of Experience. "That congressman Insists that he doesn't know the meaning of the phrase 'stand pat,' *' said one statesman. "Yes," answered the other, "but I refuse to be beguiled. Never engage in any game of chance or skill with a person wlio affects great ignorance concerning It." Progressive. "Wha/t do you think will come next?" asked one Russian official. "I don't know." answered the other. "My vocabulary is about ex ha used. We've had a strike, a riot, an Insurrection and a revo lution. What comes after a revolution?" In the Philippines. "The tariff." quoth the native bland, "Why should it claim my care. "Tis nothing, so I understand. To eat or drink or wear." "Poverty," said Uncle Eben, "is like riches, in one respect. Its respectability de pends mo' or less on how it was arrived at." * Gratitude. Congressman is talkin" loud On a lot of topics; Covers every subject from Alaska to the tropics; Talks on that theme for awhile. Then he talks on this 'un. Heaven be praised; the country's free! I don't have to listen. Has his speeches printed, too, In the Record's pages; There to charm posterity In far, future ages. Turns 'em out as rapidly As the world may need 'em. I admire 'em, but I'm glad I don't have to read 'em. Unreturning Time. From the Charleston News and Courier. We have often alluded to the feeling, which Increases with Increasing age, of the rapidity with which time passes. In youth a year seems almost Interminable, in middle age It seems only a short time to look either backward or forward; while in old age "the days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle" in their flight, and "we spend our years as a tale that is told." But there is another thing in connection with the passing of time that becomes more im pressive as years roll by. and that Is its irrevocableness; the certainty that what ever opportunities we lose are never going to be ofTered to us again, and happy indeed are those who have not in advanced years many such lost opportunities to regret. The worst of it is that such chances ap pear to us more clearly in retrospect than they ever can in looking forward. Things that did not appear to matter much at the moment have a way of assuming Impor tant proportions as we !ook back at them and realize all the consequences to which they led, and how much better it would be had we acted differently at the time the op portunity was presented to us. Glass House Inaugurations. From the New York Tribune. Congress should either hasten action on the bill submitting an amendment to the Constitution changing the date of the in auguration of the President from March 4 to the last Thursday In April, or else take a leaf out of Ohio's Journal of progress and build a crystal palace, where the Inaugura tion ceremonies may take place without danger of death to those who participate in or witness them. War. From the Indianapolis Star. After all the ruffling of feathers and other signs of irritation on the part of Germany and Prance It appears that there will be no war over Morocco. And, really, no one ex cept the Innocents who put faith In sensa tional foreign correspondence thought there would. The time has come when even na tions well equipped for fighting do not en gage in conflict lightly. War Is Wing gen erally recognized as a thing to be avoided If possible. _ Hideous Disease. From the Cleveland Plain Dealer. According to the eminent gentlejnan who ran for mayor of New York In Nbvember, W M Ivins. "we are suffering from the contagion of luxury." This will be new* to a good many of us who have no means of knowing where it can be caught. No Never. From the Baltimore Sun. You never hear a Wall street banker pre dicting a panic when he Is "long" on stocks. Ex-Millionaires. From the New Vork Ereolng Mall. The tax bills for personal property are practically all under a million. What shall we do with our ex-millionaires? Time Enough. Froui the Omaha Bee.
