The Senate and the Tariff. The amendments to the Payne bill re ported-yesterday by the finance committee of the Senate to that body are numer ous. as was expecfed, and lay the foundation for a discussion that will be more protracted, and should be much more interesting, than that the House has. just concluded. Unhampered by rules that put restraint upon debate. Senators will be at liberty to discuss the whole tariff question at length, and offer such amendments, regardless of the commit tee's work, as they may consider neces sary to make the measure reported the proper revenue producer. Mr. Aldrich in his statement makes prominent the fact that the changes rec ommended by the finance committee pro vide for three times as many reductions Increases. Revision downward was the party promise last year, and here. It Is proclaimed. is> the redemption of the promise. The free list has been en larged. and" a great many duties have bgert reduced. But what will be the general relief? What is the real value of the reductions to the rank and file of the people, and what will be the effect on the revenues of the government? Here is where the clash comes both be tween the two parties and between the expert# The democrats of the Senate will when the debate opens controvert the Aldrich argument, while the experts who assisted in the preparation of the Payne bJH will challenge some at least v of the figures of the experts who helped prepare the Senate finance committee's amendments. Mr. Daniel will open for the democrats, and we should get from him the democratic idea of how much, or how little, the republicans propose for the re lief of the taxpayers. But what about an inheritance tax. an Income tax. a stamp tax. a tax on the earnings of big corporations, or an in crease of the beer tax? AH of those .propositions have been discussed, and the first named was favored by the President and indorsed by the House. It was charged that the customs schedules of the Payne bill would not supply by many millions money enough to support the government, and the same charge will be brought against the "bill as amended by the Senate. It will be In order for any republican or any democratic senator to offer any amendment, and take the Senate's judgment on it. proposing ad ditional revenue by any means he thinks proper and - constitutional. Shall we see in the end the Senate's dibate take on its chief interest from the introduction of some such proposition? An income tax has friends on both sides of the chamber Six weeks lie between April 15 and June I. In that time, with no other business before it. the Senate should make a clear and comprehensive record on the whole tariff question. Everything there is favorable to discussion- The rules are all that the democrats should de sire. and among the senators on that < side of the chamber are some of the best speakers and best equipped men for tariff debate the party possesses. V ? Cummins. Senator Cummins should beware. Com parisons are?dangerous, and humor in politics has sometimes been fatal. Wash ington as President. Clay as Speaker of the House and Webster as senator look big in this day. and were big in their day, but they did not escape ridicule and de traction. They were thumped roundly and soundly, Washington under charges of tyranny. Clay under charges of trad ing and ambition, and Webster under charges of apostacy. Roosevelt, and Can non. and Aldrich are alive and in the pub lic eye. After they are dead and gone, and have ceaaed to be targets for attack, "a revised Judgment may present them In a light different from that in which their crltlca now view them. ? There la unquestionably a disposition in some literary circles to attribute any odd scientific suggestion that fancy happens to invent to a Chicago college professor. Castro's protest that bis health is being endangered leads to some curiosity as to who persuaded him that Venezuela is a health resort. Census Appointments. If a paragraph inserted in the census bill by the Senate the other day is per mitted by the conferees representing the two houses to pass into the legislation, not only will the interests of the Dis trict residents suffer, but the government service will be hampered seriously. This paragraph requires that persons appointed to position in the new service under the apportionment of offices law must have been bona fide residents of the states to which they are accredited for at least one year. This virtually deprives the people who live In the District of all chance of appointment to places in the departments The District's allotment under the law is. very meager, the rule being based upon population. The consequence has be?n that Washington ians seeking employment under the gov ernment have undertaken to acquire "res idences" in the states, but they have not been compelled to remain out of this jurisdiction for twelve months, as is now proposed by the pending amendment. As far aa the District is concerned the requirement of residence in the states should be done away with entirely, in stead of being made more rigorously ob structive of the appointment of local peopje. The spirit of the merit system should be compiled with so that the most efficient of all the applicants may be ap pointed The. country has progressed only a short distance away from the old spoils system in its retention of the 'ap portionment of offices law. Under this division of patronage in proportion to the population the public places are rated aa political perquisites, and the primary ?purpose is to distribute the offices not with reference to the need* of the serv ice. but among the states in proportion to their strength. It stands to reason that a true merit system, such as is contemplated by the civil .service law in Its broadest aspect, should seek the selection of the most efficient public service workers, regardless of where they Hve. If. however. Congress is not ready to abanden at once the. Illogical and ob structive apportionment law, it ihould ait least make a particular exception In favor of the District. This community has been kept by Congress free from the disfigurements of Industrial develop ment. and also free from the local means of self-support which trade and manufac turing supply. It has been the settled pol icy of the United States to maintain the Capital city as a place of residence and government work, and consequently the opportunities for employment offered to the young men and women of Washington are limited, in large part, to the gov ernment service. Outside of the needs of the retail trade establishments and the professional offices, there are few chances for the local workers if they axe unable to obtain appointment to the government service. Yet, they are particularly well qualified for that service, living, as they do. in the utmosphere of departmental duties and routine. In many cases their parents have been employed by the go\ ernment. and they are acquainted with the traditions and the requirements of the federal work. In the circumstances they are ideally equipped to render the most effective service to tfeft United States, and it is altogether likely that in a free-for-all competition for depart mental appointment. Without geograph ical or political restrictions, the local residents would jprove themselves more efficient than the majority of their rivals. To declare against the District s par ticipation In government service merely because of the small population of this territory is to plsTce the sefvlce upon nearly as low a plane as In the old days, when every four years most of the gov ernment workers, regardless of grade and quality and proved efficiency, were required to walk the plank to make room for the favorites of the newly in stalled administration This obstructive paragraph is at issue in conference. The representatives of the House will perform a meritorious pub lic service by insisting upon its elimina tion from the bill, and it would be to the best interests of" the government if they went further and held firmly to a new paragraph, relieving the District alto gether from the restrictions of the ap portionment law. The Beginning of Spring. Spring has come in truth?the real spring, the season of hope and enthusi asm and good spirits. The calendar noted the advent of the seasonal, climatic, astronomical and conventional spring some time hack In March, but the genu ine spring did not open until yesterday, when the turnstiles began to click on the multitudes gathering to see the first base ball game of the year. No matter what the almanac may say, no matter how the crocuses may poke their bright blooms above ground, regardless of the state of the foliage and the prevalence of early vear languor, spring is not actually in evidence until the ball games are started. Yesterday's spring opening in "Wash ington was auspicious. A record-breaking crowd, limited only by the capacity of the park, gave vociferous welcome to the young men who. every loyal rooter firmly believes, are to carry the local colors into that cherished "first division" of comparative honor. No mere beating out some other team for last place will satisfy the ambition-fired ?'fans" of the capital. No good quality of "near base ball" will meet with approval. The town is all worked up over the possibilities of the case, and visions of world's champion ship games are even floating before the eyes of some of the more ardent, who, with altruistic enterprise, are working out plans to accommodate immense multi tudes in the titanic struggles of that happy time. Thus is the game opened in Washington, as it has opened for years, with a strong, steady following of devotees who are will ing to forego the pleasures of home for the sake of occupying uncomfortable seats on the bleachers, or even on the ground. This la such a "good base ball town" that some day It will surely get a pennant winner; it has earned one. if fidelity and intelligent interest and adju ration of clean sport are worthy of re ward. And when that day comes, this year, or next year, or the next, Washing ton will feel well rewarded for its patlen^ patronage. Considering everything, espe cially the exceptionally favorable start of yesterday, and all the signs of the sport, the present outlook Is surely brighter than for many years. Here's hoping! The Potomac Park band concerts will serve to remind many people who have overlooked the fact that Washington's facilities for popular outdoor life com pare favorably with those of some of the world's gayest capitals. In connection with the new deal in the tariff many industries find their greatest excitement in waiting to see what they will get in the draw. The Senate will now assume its share of responsibility for any delay in tariff legislation. Base ball appears to be a be^er inspira tion for the weather man than an inaugu ration. As a food product, benzoate of soda has the advantage of being under no sus picion of adulteration. Shading Streets and Roads. The street and roadside trees are com ing in for an increasing measure of care and protection. The legislature of Penn sylvania has" recently passed and the gov ernor has signed a bill which prescribes a fine of $5 on any person cutting or otherwise damagiing a tree growing by the side of any public road In the state. The state highway commission of Penn sylvania, under authority of the legisla ture given at Its last session, will plant trees along all highways built or im proved under the provisions of the state road law. The state has also entered upon the work of planting highway trees in townships, borougha.and cities. Writ ing on the subject of highway trees, the Philadelphia Press cays: "The barren. shadeless highways, whether In country or town, make a blis tering line of heat in summer, which la hard on both man and beast that pass over them. They are also singularly un attractive. Trees give a beautiful setting to any street, especially a country road, and none should be without them. The disposition now in this state is to reforest the hillsides and plateaus and give a green lining of shade trees to the streets in summer time. The young trees by the wayside are easily destroyed and are In daily danger from careless drivers, from mischievous boys and gnawing beasts." The city of Denver last Monday began the gratuitous distribution of 20,000 trees, mainly elms and maples, among the resi dents of that progressive city. These trees are to be planted in the streets by the citizens at their own expense. This is an object lesson In civic pride and spirit. Denver also has an organization called the Outdoor Art League Of this league Municipal Facts, a weekly paper pub lished by the city of Denver in the inter est of civic betterment, says: "In the army of workers for a more beautiful Denver Is a modest squad, known SB the Outdoor Art League. Doubt less in time it will enlist enough recruits to acquire the dignity of a company or perhaps a regiment, but even at Its pres ent size it has dealt some telling blows against the enemy?Unslghtllness. The especial point of attack intrusted to the Outdoor Art League is the beautifying of vacant pieceB of property. Denver la rich in vacant lots.' Denver people seem not to expect that their city government shall do everything fer them- In the "clean-up" campaign there the citizens are admonished to "re pair your sidewalk." "repair and paint your fences, gates and sheds," "take the dandelions out of your lawn," "if your residence, store front, wagons or automo biles look old or faded, have them re painted," "keep down the weeds on your property and on the vacant lots near you," "if your awnings are old. torn or faded, get new ones," and "do not spit on the sidewalks." Some of the old cities might do well to catch a bit of the enthusiasm which in spires the people of these new towns. It if not likely that Col. Cooper has influence to prevent the widow of Edward Carmack from securing an appointment in the Columbia, S. C.. post office, or that he would use it if he had. Enterprising citizens of Hoboken have not held any meetings to deplore deficits in cash circulation caused by the de parture of Hetty Green. The purchase by Japan of a new sub marine boat from an American inventor la likely to cause Mr. Hobson some difficulty in restraining further comment. Some republican enthusiasts seem in clined to avoid dissolving the solid south in the hope that it will come over in a body. Yesterday's game may be cheerfully ac cepted as an indication of the Nationals' form for the season. Tariff bill jokers do not appeal to the American sense of humor. A presidential election in Mexico is merely a ratification meeting. SHOOTING STARS. BT PHILANDER JOHNSON. Expensive Experience. "I suppose you will do a little gardening this year?" "No." answered Mr. Sirius Barker. "I tried it once. It made me so sympathetic with the people who raise things to eat that I stood for any overcharge the huckster chose to suggest." A Condition Remedied. "You Americans eat too much." said the health expert. "That will be remedied." answered Mr. Fann. "With base ball claiming my at tention most every day. and my wife busy with afternoon concerts, most of the at tention to dinner wfll be left to the serv ants." % The Stocking Tariff. "What pathways shall our footsteps trace?" And echo rudely answers: Perhaps you'll have to hit the pace Set by Saloamy dancers! 8eeking to Be a Comforter. "You are consuming a great deal of valuable time with your tariff argument." "Yes." answered Senator Sorghum, "I find satisfaction in trying to demonstrate that here is one case where the consumer doesn't pay the tax." "What sorter confuses me." said Uncle ?ben. "is dat after I gits a lot of advice I s got to go around ant git a lot mo' advice 'bout which advice I's g'ineter take." Artist Enthusiasm. Jle took up his pen to enlighten such men As ventured to read what he wrote: "Oh. why mention Shakespeare again and again When you seek for an author to quote? He is rude in his style and once in a while He would drink in convivial pubs; He's really unworthy your tear or your smile"; 0 Wrote Algernon Flubbington Dubbs. "And Byron was queer, and, withal, in sincere. And frequently most Impolite. And Thackeray wore a laborious's^eer. While Dickens was middle-class,' quite. Of course. I'll agree sacred Scripture should be Exempt from all critical snubs. But most other works seem deficient to ?? * * me. Said Algernon Flubbington Dubbs. "Scant pleasure I glean from the plays of Racine; Mollere was terrible clown. And Schiller and Goethe are not worth a bean When you've thoroughly sifted them down. Those writers of old with their fancies so bold Were only enchrysalized grubs. Bright, winged perfection at last you be hold In Algernon Flubbington Dubbs!" Profanity in Boys. From the Savaanah News. It is a regrettable fact that profanity has become common among the boys. It is not in the least out of the ordinary, where a group of boys of ten to fifteen years is together upon the streets or in any open space to play a game of ball, to hear them using oaths that might suit the tongues of the proverbial fishwife or coetermonger, but which are shocking falling from 'the tongues of children of tender years. Of all stupid and silly vices, profanity is one of the worst and most abominable. A simple statement of fact is much stronger than any statement embellished with swearwords, and no lie is made any the more believable by being framed in profanity. In fact, both truth and falsehood are weakened by swearing and taking the Lord's name in vain. Foul epithets and comparisons are not convincing, but are almost invariably dis gusting. except to those making use of them. Profanity among men seems to be growing less and less, at least in public places and among those who may lay claim to decency and some education. But the habit seems to have firmly fixed itself upon a great manv of the boys, who may imagine it mannish to use profanity and smoke cigarettes. Highway Slaughter. From the New York Tribune. If more than one hundred deaths were to be caused in this city in fifteen months by smallpox, or yellow fever, or bubonic plague, we should have a panic. If. such destruction of life were produced by any needless and avoidable cause of general and increasing prevalence we should prob ably have public meetings and committees and what not, demanding that the health board, the police or other municipal authorities should exercise prompt and effective measures for stopping the dread ful sacrifice. Yet in the last fifteen months more than a hundred lives have been lost on the public streets of this City chiefly in a wholly needless and in deed criminally wanton manner. And now at last the police and the courts have be gun to do something about it which Eromises to be measurably effective. It is igh time that they did. For nine-tenths of these lives were sacrificed to an inso lent. reckless, law-defying craze for speed. Playgrounds. From the l/w Asfelea Herald. Playgrounds should be an important part of the public school economy and our children should be taught how to play In the playgrounds. Strletly Private. Ftmq the Pittaburs Dlapatch.
