"Dr. Dubois" and Booker Washington.
In The Star's news report of public school
matters, printed yesterday, occurred the
following statement:
"It is understood that Dr. Chancellor
has in mind as a possible appointee for
the position of assistant superintendent. In
case of the reduction of Dr. Montgomery,

Ga. I)r. Dubois is said to represent the
members of his race who stand for the
lilerher education of the colored people.
He Is an opponent of Booker Washington
In th.it respect, and has made attacks upon
Washington In writing."
It is not credible that a man of the Intelligence
of Dr. Chancellor should be' In
sympathy with "Dr. Dubois" in his vile attacks
upon Booker Washington and his
echeme for educating the youth of his race
on practical lines. It is not too high praise
to characterise Booker Washington as the

ham Lincoln. He has founded an Institution
which has amazed the world with Its
Success. He has offered a solution of the
race problem in terms which should appeal
to every American citizen.
Booker Washington's plan for his people
Is to teach them to be self-supporting by
honest labor, to be moral, frugal, cleanly,
self-respecting and capable. He Is today
engaged in turning out of Tuskegee hundreds
of valuable members of society,
trained in letters sufficiently to enable them
to work intelligently with their heads as

take up the burden of life In the lines of
the race's greatest possibilities. He is discouraging
the tendencies which on the part
of the negroes themselves serve to inflame
the race prejudices of the whites In the
Against this man have been launched the
diatribes and the abuse of a certain coterie
of negro scholars and educators, who, hav
In# risen themselves far above tne general
level of their race, scorn the humbler but
more practical means of education which
have been adopted at Tuskegee. They
would concentrate the educational efforts of
their race upon the production of doctors,
lawyers and other professional men, training
for these pursuits many who would
make better blacksmiths. Booker Washirton
sInifi at th^? hrnn/lejatt nnnortJin-Itv rs
well as the most urgent need of his race.
He believes In manual labor. In Its influence
as well as in its compensations for
a people who are most urgently In need
of means of earning a livelihood. He
would train for the professions only those
who show espe ial qualities. He knows
that the university education often spoils
good farmer and makes a bad citizen.
The country at large, north and south,
agrees generally with Booker Washington.
It has witnessed his success and it indorses
his theory that the so-called race
jirobiera will be best solved by the negro
learning to live decently and honestly and
frugally. The most serious need of tha
negro today is to remain with the soil, to
keep away from the centers of population.
The most injurious mistakes he makes arise
from his tendency to settle in the cities.
A fact which redounds most highly to the
credit of President Roosevelt is that he has
always stood steadfastly by Booker Washington
as a man with a mission. The President's
words and acts have testified to his
faith in Tuskegee and its founder. He
indorses the doctrine of training the negro
according to his greatest chance of development
and his most urgent need.
It is a striking com.m<-ntary on this matter
that the reported choice of Dr. Chancellor
for a position in the local school
system should be at this time connected
with the educational work in Atlanta, the
scene of such hideous happenings within a
few weeks. Those riots between the whites
and the blacks may be In some degree attributed
to the results of the teachings of
the Dubois school of leadership, inducing
the negroes to leave their farms and flock
to town, to turn their becks upon ,the
scnoois axe inai or vvasnington, which
teach them to be decent citizens and capable
artisans and prosperous farmers, and to
herd together in cities to lead Immoral
lives and to arouse the fiercest resentment
of the whites.
The city of Washington wants none of
this style of teaching. It wants no false
leaders of the negro people connected with
Its public school system. The community

Peonage for Panama.
Colonel Thompson of Chattanooga, Tenn.,
submitted to the President yesterday a suggestion
containing, as he thinks, the solution
of two most important problems: The
race question In the south, and the digging
of the Panama canal. He proposes that the
idle and worthless negroes of that section
be corralled and sent to the canal zone to
make the dirt fly. The peace of the south,
he points out, would be greatly promoted
by the disappearance of that class of her
population, and hands for wielding picks
and shovels In Panama would be supplied.
The proposition Is simple and looks easy,
but a little examination reveals difficulties.
How Is this force to be collected? Men too ,
lazy and trifling to work at home are not
to be expected to volunteer for a journey to
And work. Shall they be Impressed for the
service? Shall government agents tour the
south and have such men pointed out, and
then present them in court on vagrancy
charges and have them sentenced to
Panama? Shall the government, after Its
efforts to break up peonage in the south, ,
irn Into thp hiistnpss itself on a wholesale
basis? It comes to that. Under such an
order of things the canal zone would be a
convict camp. Those taken there by force
would have to be held there by force. The
armed guard would be the most striking
figure on the horizon.
Then again, conceding the convicts and
the armed guards, what sort of work should
we get from such "laborers"? Drones at
home and exiles by reason of it, would they, ,
even under guard and the lash, meet the
demands of the government at their place
of imprisonment? It is warm in Tennessee,
and warmer still In Louisiana and Mississippi.
but not nearly so warm as in
Panama. If the weather had contributed
anything to the laziness of the convicts
while at home, would they be more indus
inous wun tne sun pouring its rays aown
with full power? How much more so? How
long would It take to complete the most
difficult Job of the day with a force com- <
posed of the scum of this country, too
worthless to earn their salt at home?
Fifty, or five hundred, years?
The President possesses a ??nse of humor,
and has referred Colonel Thompson to Secretary
Taft and Mr. Shonts, who in turn
will enjoy themselves. Let us not get the
canal question complicated with the race
question. There is no affinity, and both are
very difficult. Such a camp as Colonel j
TJinmnonn n'nii 1 <1 oafohllah at Panamti
would rob the old Botany Bay of Its long- (
time enjoyed and Infamous distinction. The
colonel should go over his subject again.

Ordinarily a "high" on the weather map
Is a good sign, a token of good weather, of 1
clear airs, of sunshine. The "high" Is the 1
friend of the city dweller, the man who '
does not need rain In his business. It is
also usually welcomed by the farmer. The
"low" Is the chap that does the damage.
It Is the "low" that brings the rains and
winds, that devastates cities and smashes

break for shelter, for there Is trouble coming.
Just now. however, we are suffering from
too much "high." We are having a surplus
of the good thing?not right here, to
be sure, but In the vicinity. A great, selfish,
sluggish "high" has settled down over
the northland and Is simply hogging the
map. It will not move and It wi.l not let
anything else move. Two or three brisk
"lows" have come up out of the warm
southern waters, bent upon smashing
things and then going on. Nobody has ,
wanted them, but Inasmuch as they have
come everybody has wished them speedy (
passage. And that miserable "high" up In <
Canada and northern United States has
buffed them back and refused to allow them '
room to move. '
That Is the secret of this prolonged gray- ,
ness of atmosphere, these Insistent rains, 1
this doleful absence of sun, this ruthless <
shortening of the autumn days of delight, j
If It had not been for the obstinacy of the ,
northern "high" we should have had a <
clearing sky several days ago, and the 1
birds would have been singing their fare- 1
wells, and the leaves would have been ]

Sir Thomas Upton is so popular In this 1

In view of recent experiences a prediction

The Waste Paper Nuisance.
The citizen who throws a bit of waste 1
paper Into the public streets Is contributing
his mite to the general slovenliness of
the city. He is helping to make Washing- i
ton unlovely, unkempt and possibly unhealthy.
He is violating a police regulation . I
an<l rendering himself liable to prosecution I
and One. Possibly he does not realise this J
fact, but It is nevertheless true that every
man who throws waste paper into the
streets Is an offender against the law. !
The superintendent of street cleaning reports
to the Commissioners that his men
are compelled every day to collect more j
than 300 bags of waste paper from the |
streets, thus adding heavily to their work <
and rendering the whole street cleaning |
service less efficient. Last rear no less
than 11,000 bags of waste paper were gathered
from the streets and alleys. All this
might have been burned In stoves or placed 1
In the receptacles provided by the District
on certain street corners. None of It need 1
to have been tossed out carelessly, to litter j
the streets, possibly to frighten horses, to
add to the work of the cleaners and to contribute
to the unwholesome conditions generally.
It Is stated by the superintendent of this
department that very few prosecutions ,
have resulted from such police assistance 1
as has been rendered his service In this re- J
spect. It would seem to be easy for ,
a vigilant policeman to make a case every i
day If he la so disposed. It would require
only a few fines and a little publicity of
the fact to rive the people an object lesson
In law observance. The Commissioners can
materially facilitate the movement for a
more attractive and more healthful city by
requiring the police force to do Its duty
In this respeot and to hale to court for a
time every offender against the waste paper
regulation. Then probably the man who
thoughtlessly tosses his newspaper or
paper bag or wrapper aside after use will
learn that be has been Indifferent to his
awn as well as the general Interests.

fork has wide and Important national bearngs,
especially as affecting the democratic
?arty of the nation. No one oan deny that
Hearst is now Its divisive force. His Iniependence

With this i?ague he was able to

He undoubtedly believes that he
