The Schools and the Economists.
It is announced that the House commit
tee on appropriations will vigorously oppose
the school salary bill, which has Just been
i eported by the District committee, on the
ground that it involves a heavy addition to
the local educational budget, already, ac
cording to some critics, too large In pro
portion to the city. It Is at the same time
understood that the appropriations commit
tee will be met by a solid array of members
who are convinced that the school budget is
not now big enough, so long as It does not
provide a deccntly liberal salary for the
teachers and a system of automatic pro
motion which will offer them the assurance
of annual Increases as long as they are
competent.
It Is possible to Juggle the statistics in al
most any combination and to show all sorts
of results in the way of comparisons be
tween Washington and other cities. It may
be shown, by a shrewd selection of items,
that the capital's schools cost more In su
pervision, or In the higher administration,
or in special Instruction, or in this, that
and the other direction. It may at the
same time be shown by an equally careful?
perhaps more just?selection of the bases
of estimation, that the District's schools
cost less In these particulars than do those
of other cities. In short, comparisons are
apt to be misleading, as well as "odor
ous."
In the Immediate case In hand, however,
nil comparisons, whether wrought by the
advocates or the opponents of sweeping
school reorganization, or by the special
friends of the underpaid teachers, point
clearly to the fact that the teachers of
Washington deserve and actually need a
higher range of pay and a more attractive
insurance of promotion. Experience has
m ight that the best teachers of Washlng
t i are constantly I eing tempted, often be
yound their powers of resistance, to leave
the local field for other cities, where a
higher appraisement is put upon their serv
ices l! Is undeniably urgently necessary
at this time to do something to hold these
worth} men and women to the work they
are so satisfactorily performing. If noth
ing is done the schools will Inevitably fall
from their present high educational
standard.
It should he the desire of every member
of Congress, considering himself as a spe
cial guardian of District interests, that the
school of the capital should be above all
comparisons In point of every detail of ad
ministration. These schools should be mod
els by which all those elsewhere are guided.
The first step to this end is the proclama
tion of a living wage and a square deal for
all the teachers.
It wiii be very poor economy, indeed. If
the critics of the amended Babcock bill ac
complish its defeat or material amendment
In tli direction of less liberal salaries and
promotion conditions. There Is, in truth,
r." occasion for economies of this sort. The
District has the means to maintain Its
s 'he,,Is i n a properly liberal basis, especially
if - will cease to regard its current
it ome as subject to draft for the imme
diate payment of the cost of great perma
nent works.
Austrians and Hungarians.
A thorough compromising of the differ
ences between the Hungarians and the
Austrians over questions of nationality and
language will indeed bo a great boon to the
dual empire ruled by Francis Joseph. For
many years the>se two partners have
strained against the bonds. Their similari
ties of racial temperament were not suffi
cient to offset their divergencies. The one
side inevitably came to be the stronger, the
side from which came the king-emperor.
V ?- dominance of the Austrians, although
not existent in the law. was nevertheless a
reil a 1 tangible factor In the equation.
Te H lirarlans have always felt that de
?; te ? forms of autonomy within their
own l>ord*: s. they were subjected to pres
- .rr " in V'ienna. They have resented all
t- -id' es toward a suppression of their
language They have refused resolutely to
s k t ? i differences and blend with the
\ i rl, tn form one great, strong, com
I ict national entity. In consequence the
dual empire has l>oen one of the weakest of
the K\iropean states.
The partition of the Austrian-Hungarian
< ?:. would seriously complicate Euro
l--.ui i Mtics Germany Is closely watching
the sit itlon at Vienna and Buda Pesth. It
I- i pen secret that Emperor William
I desired a violent outbreak some day,
1 . ibly permitting him to appear as the
. cm of the Germanic dwellers within
i e dual empire. Quite recently a writer In
The Star reviewed this situation to show
?he existence of a hope in the German mind
of a change In the map of Europe which
will give the Berlin government access to
the Mediterranean, if William's ambitions
In this direction are based upon the possi
bility of a rupture between Austria and
Hungary the adjustment now reported must
be unwelcome reading at Potsdam.
Von Buelow, after his fainting fit. asked
fi r a tup of coffee and a newspaper. This
? lu>* rates the difference between a German
?md a Kusslan statesman. A St. Petersburg
? fflciai would ask for a cup of tea, and If
In- saw a newspaper would have another
fainting fit.
The man who keeps reminding people that
lie: ins are lurking cn every hand Is almost
ua much of a terror as the germs.
T ere are senators frank enough to admit
tl ?? if people at their own homes were
?ff. ted by the appointment of BenJ. Barnes
It would be different.
Time and the Railroad Bill.
Mr. Tillman understands, and the country
should, that the railroad rate bill is not
alone Involved In the delay In the Senate
about reaching a vote on that measure.
Whllti there's delay there's hope, not only
for changing the rate proposition, but for
forcing the Senate's ternvs on other meas
ures. It Is an Interesting parliamentary
maneuver, conceived by experts, and In
their hands for execution. No one of them
doubts that a railroad rate bill will pass.
The object Is to keep It In front as long as
possible In order to Influence action on a
geueral program.
The Senate as a body can afford the time.
It U not interested as the House Is in the
coming elections. The seats of only a third
of Its members are In the scale adjusted
for November. Besides, some of these sen
ators have their canvass** for re-election
already well In hand. They have been at
work for a long time by one means or an
uther putting their fences In order. The
Senate therefore can see the summer ap
proach with calmness, and make small fuas
about spending: part of the season tn Wash
ington.
The House Is a horse of another color.
Just now time Is everything with Its
member*. They are as Impatient as school
boys looking for the end of the term.
They want to get away from Washing
ton as soon as possible, and plunge Into
work at home for re-election. Every day
here Is an age. Still they could not af
ford a retreat, or a capitulation to the
Senate. When they do go home they will
be tried by the record of the session, and
if it should appear that they paid too
much in compromises for adjournment de
feat might be their portion.
It Is upon this feeling of uneasiness and
Impatience on the part of the House that
the Senate seeks to play. Will the play
succeed? It Is an old game, played some
times by one side and sometimes* by the
other. The House, if It cares, can make
it Interesting for the Senate. It holds some
pretty high cards itself, and Mr. Cannon,
who was not born yesterday, has very defi
nite ideas about railroad rate control, the
Philippine tariff bill, the statehood bill, the
ship subsidy bill and other bills. It Is a
good time for people with leisure and some
knowledge of politics to keep an eye on
Congress. Seldom has a situation in that
body been more attractive as a study In
parliamentary finesse and warfare.
CongTesa and Its Accusers.
The special commissioners who swooped
down on Washington several months ago to
uncover tVie rottenness of Congress and ail
that have accomplished one thing. They
have attracted attention to themselves. But
In doing that they have served the powers
they came to destroy. Their screeda have
fully revealed both Ignorance and venom,
and consequently failed of their object.
Such writers always overdo their tasks.
The reader need not follow them further
than twenty lines before discovering that
they are writing up to a preconceived opin
ion! and going at a speed that makes in
formation and accuracy Impossible. A hot
gospeler of that type, with Ills adjectlve3 all
arranged in advance, is soon detected, and
detection ends him.
These men are not the first of their kind
to Invade Washington on such an errand.
For years It has been the custom of cer
tain publications in dull times to dispatch
special representatives to the capital to
"give Washington a turning over." The
assumption in such a case is that the
writers regularly stationed here get stale
and dull, and fall to discover the true In
wardness of things. A new man, it is rea
soned, will go in on his mettle and clear the
atmosphere, putting rascally legislators on
guard, and encouraging honest ones to
greater effort.
The way in which such commissions as a
rule are discharged has long been one or
the jokes In Washington Journalistic cir
cles. Sensations made to order are always
defective. The Ingredients hastily gathered
rarely mix, and the result is a mess ob
noxious to both good taste and common
sense.
One has only to reflect a moment to ap
preciate the absurdity of the whole calcu
lation. If the regular writers in Washing
ton, who number several hundred, and are
men of training and ability, could be con
victed of sleepiness, or Indifference, or
worse, it would not stand to reason that a
few strangers could point out the country s
difficulties after a hasty glance. For if
Congress were that rotten it would expose
Itself. Not even special commissioners
would be necessary. The country's busi
ness could not be conducted by officials at
the mercy of any visitor come to town to
show them up.
Upon the whole, this latest hullabaloo will
strengthen rather than weaken the public
service. A general warning against sensa
tional accusers of men in office can but
make the public more careful in Its reading
and more just in its judgment.
Bingham. %
Police Commissioner Bingham must be
making an impression in New York. His
reported resignation attracts attention. This
never happens in the case of an incompetent
official, or a lazylKmes. It is of Interest, too,
to note that General Bingham ia shaking
down into the customs of civil station. He
treats the story good-naturedly, and asks
for particulars. One might suppose him to
have been brought up in politics, Instead
of In the army, and to have been chaffed
daily by reporters hunting for news. He is
not surprised to find his job full of difficul
ties, with here and there a disagreeable fea
ture trying on the patience. He'll not make
New York a paradise, well as he may servo
her. Probably he has no such aim, but hopes
at most to limit the area of the devil's activ
ity in the big town, and make the good peo
ple reasonably safe In their homes and
daily walks.
Dr. Wiley continues to proceed on the
theory that alimentary canals are quite aa
important in our civilization as Inter
oceanic canals.
When all the other statesmen have grown
weary talking about public questions W. J
Bryan will come back from his long vaca
tion fresh, vigorous and perhaps anvbitjus.
It is not at all a bad idea that the chap
lain of the Senate should occasionally have
assistance while rate legislation Is under
discussion.
If there must be a coal strike this is the
time of year when it would cause the aver
age citizen least Inconvenience.
As an expert, Speaker Cannon admits that
occasions may arise w hen it is not desirable
to stand pat.
A Russian election is not good until It Is
marked "O K" by the people already in
power.
In this activity concerning rate revision,
everybody works except the railways.
No Tariff Inquiry Necessary.
The resolution of Mr. Davidson of Wis
consin providing that the ways and means
commiuee, or a subcommittee thereof, sit
during the coming recess of the House and
Inquire Into the demands for a revision of
the tariff, and report to the ijext session, Is
open to two objections.
In the first place, as soon as the House
adjourns the members will enter at once
upon campaigns for rcnomination or for re
election. There will be no time for such
work as the resolution proposes. Such an
inquiry would bring both the revisionists
and the standpatters Into the field, and the
committee would find the six months before
December barely sufficient for Its task, even
if the members were Willing to let the4r
personal fortunes in the campaign slide.
Such a request, however, would be unrea
sonable. Those wtoo are not hard pressed
themselves will want to go to the aid of
party friends who are. No member of the
present House who desires to be a member
also of the next, and that his party shall
control that body, will be a gentleman of
leisure this coming summer and fall..
In the second place, so far as the revision
ists are concerned no inquiry Is necessary.
They are prepared to make their case good
now. They have made their own Inquiry.
The trouble is that the standpatters, who
control the ways and meant committee, re
fuse to hear them. Without inquiry, and
entirely because of the power they possess,
they plant themselves upon the proposition
that because no panic exists or is impending
the tariff does not need revision, and shall
not be revised. Some other time, they re
ply. with an air of Impatience.
Thai other time would not bs hastened by
an Inquiry. Nor If an Inquiry were made
would there be time even for a discussion of
the report at the abort session of this Con
gress. which will be fully occupied with the
supply bills and other routine business. Mr.
Payne's letter to Mr. McCaU sends the tariff
over to the next Congress and makes it an
Issue In this year's campaigns. The revision
ists can but take notice and govern them
selves accordingly. If they stand to their
guns, as they should, they will be able to
attract some attention in the Sixtieth Con
gress. and perhaps force name action, even
though on the eve of the presidential elec
tion.
Reports from Panama agree that condi
tions were very bad. are still far from per
fect, but are being improved as rapidly as
possible. It Is a state of affairs that is en
tirely devoid of sensationalism. It is most
soothing and satisfactory.
The Chinese government is on the verge
of a crisis. And this is not so much of
an evidence of civilization as It seems on
first observation.
A man who criticises as much as Mr. Je
rome does must expect to be criticised
some.
SHOOTING STABS.
Outcome and Income.
"What do you think will be the outcome
of this railway agitation?"
"I don't know," answered Senator
Sorghum, "but I cannot believe It will be
allowed to seriously affect the Income of
the railways."
"De man dat never thinks about money."
said Uncle Eberv. "an' de man dat don't
think about nothln' else Is two people dat's
gwinter hat? a big share o' trouble in dJs
world."
A Method.
"I wouldn't touch a penny to which I
hadn't a legal right," said the conscientious
man.
"Of course not," answered Mr. Dustln
Stax. "The thing to do is to have lawyers
employed who can show you the legal
right."
A Hit.
This vernal marksmanship must suit
Each mortal who will pause to see;
It's where the twigs begin to shoot
That nature makes a hit with me.
Beaching.
"Do you think your new scheme of arctic
exploration will enable you to reach the
north pole?"
"It may not," was the explorer's frank
reply. "But in "any event, it will enable me
to reach the lecture-going public."

The Easter Bonnet.
From the Boston Transcript.
Touching that Easter hat we wonder If
our girls would take a bit of advice from a
standpoint that does not include at all the
bill-paying view of the situation? Even a
man who has no women folk feels as he
looks In the windows "of millinery shops
that the limit of the fantastic In women's
headgear has been readied In the spring
showings. Every angle and every curve
known to geometers are described in the
new hats and it is evident that there has
been on the part of designers a successful
attempt at making extremes meet in every
hat. As a study, the results are fascinating.
Will they remain so once they are perched
on human heads? Girls who are always
good to see no matter what they wear will
carry them off as part of their stock in
trade, but the others, those who are de
pendent on their settings to some extent
for their attractions, should shun the gro
tesque things. Nothing can so quickly
transform a sensible woman into a ridicu
lous one as does a hat: And in Parl3, they
are saying, the hats for the coming season
are built on far saner and more intelligent
lines than the samples displayed on this
side for our observation.
Presidential Independence.
Washington Correspondence Pittsburg Dispatch.
The appointment of B. F. Barnes of New
Jersey to be postmaster of Washington is
an indication of how independent the Presi
dent has become In the matter of selecting
postmasters. It shows that lie is exercis
ing the constitutional right of naming men
for office and permitting the congressmen
to know about it after the selection has
been made. He cannot prevent the Senate
advising and consenting to the appoint
ment, but he can force the senators to give
their advice and consent after he has moved
in the matter instead of before, as has been
the custom.
Poor old Washington may froth and fume
because Barnes is not a citizen in tlio sense
of the word that he is identified with any
of its interests, but It will have to stand
for what It believes to be Its inherent right
to have something to say about the men
who shall rule It.

Something in Dreams.
From the Savannah Xewa.
The other night a Florida farmer dreamed
that half a mile east of his house there was
a little hill on the crest of which stood a
tree, and that at the root of the tree there
was buried a pot of gold Next morning
bright and early he started out to Investi
gate. And his dream came true In part.
He found the hill and also a tree.
