The City of All the People.
Practically no other city in the United
States has the same opportunity to
Impress itself upon the minds of the
people of the country at large as Washington,
and it is to be hoped that advantage
will be taken of this exceptional
chance by proceeding in the direction
suggested in The Star yesterday to acquaint
all visitors with the peculiar
status of the District, its requirements,
its limitations and its dangers. Through
the assembly here of conventions Washington
entertains in the course of a year
many thousands of delegates from all
parts of the United States, representing

Could all the people who atended those
meetings be brought Into one gathering

assemblage, standing for a wide
range of the world's work- Patriots,
technicians, scientists, business men, philanthropists,
financiers, they came from
every state and from .every walk in lifeTheir
numbers were In the aggregate
perhaps more than 100,000. With their
families and friends accompanying them
they made an army of fully a Quarter
of a million people. Some came from
overseas, some had been here many
times before. All of them were interested
in Washington, as a municipal creation,
as the national city, as an expression of
the American civilisation. Each of them
should have been told the story of Washington
in simple terms and In a manner to
make them all at least friendly to If not

* vuvc auu x ire men s tensions, j
Can it be possible that Congress will1
continue to skimp In the matter of restrict
appropriations, and especially in the
provision for the payment of pensions to
policemen and firemen Injured and the
widows of those killed in the line of duty,
in the face of the spectacle Just presented
of the municipal government practically
unable to make any compensation to the
families of the firemen who lost their
lives while endeavoring to prevent the
spread of Saturday morning's destructive
blaw? Surely the case will appeal to
every member of the House and Senate
Who professes to feel the sympathy for
the National Capital which has lately
been Indicated so freely in Interviews and
statements drawn forth by the disclosure
that a change in the organic act asu contemplated
in the House of Representatives.
The provisions for the police and firemen's
pension fund have never been adequate
have never been businesslike. Certain
odds and ends of revenue have been
turned over td It. su<th M collected
in the Police Court. If the city grows exceptionally
goQd and arregts and convictions
diminish, the penstoo fund suffers.
The result is that in a measure fins fund
depends upon the activity of the police in
making: cases in court and filling tiss jail
and workhouse with prisoners. This Is
hardly, to be viewed as an ideal method
of insuring a decent prpvision for thoge
injured in the performance of their duties
or for the families of thoee who fall while
obeying orders in the protection of the
community from disaster and Igss.
Efforts have been? made In the pa?t to
have thin fund put upon ai proper basis,
and an amount definitely ^appropriated
annually, to maintain it.' with contributions
from the District and federal revenues.
"There Is nd equitable or statutory
inotifleo#ai? c eonflPiitinn from the
ju^yjiiv^uvii kvt ? v?' * ?- ? -
other municipal extensions. It 1? as much
an/ Itbm of maintenance as the fund for
the pay^of the firemen and policemen or
the salaries of the Commissioners. If it
is proper to pay the disabled members
of these tiro forces and their widows pensions,
If is surely no less than -right to
charge the cost upon the Jointly provided
revenues Just as in other matters of
municipal Maintenance. ,
To neglect-longer to make decent provision
for the police and firemen's pension
fund is certain to lower the morals of
these two 'services, which have no superior
in the United States for efficiency,
integrity and bravery.
The Excite Board Inquiry.
It is to be. hopetj. that *he investigation
conducted by the Commissioners into the
activities-of the-exttse hoard, precipitated
by the accusation of a member of that
board by a former employe, will be thor"'ly*?.
< -character to insure entire
public confidence in" the findings when
they tre. rendered. En an Important degree
this board safeguards the community's
Interests. Its members occupy
a dual position, as assessors of the
real estate- and personal property in the
District and as a quasi-judicial body in
supervision of the liquor trade in the
District. In both functions they touch
intimately the affairs of the citizens. It
is in the latter capacity that they are
now nnder inquiry, the Commissioners
having: felt themselves justified in widening1
the sctfpe' of the investigation beyond
the limits of the specific accusations
brought against one -of the members. It
is due to the officials themselves, in any
case, that the whole subject be throtvn
open; that technical rights be waived
to permit the testimony to cover a wide
range, so that at the end the verdict will
appeal to the community as a satisfactory
finding not clouded by doubt.
Without reference to the matter immediately
at issue, it is desirable that the
Commissioners' should take a sharp look
into the methods and practices of this
board. It is incumbent upon them from
time to time to ascertain the workings
of every branch of the municipal organization.
The average of official integrity
in this District is remarkably high. There
is an exceptional degree of public confidence
in the administration of local affairs.
This confidence will not be shaken
by the spectacle of a sharp investigation
of any of the branches of the District
government, but will rather be strengthened,
even though Irregularities may be
developed and facts disclosed which call
for changes.
The Commissioners have acted wisely
in deciding to hold their inquiry in this
case in the open. A secret hearing would
defeat the best object to be held in viewthat
of convincing the public that whatever
eccentricities may have existed in
the past in this department, whatever degree
of foundation there may be for the
charge on which the proceedings are
based, there is no disposition at the District
building to hide the facts.
Supreme Court Changes.
The death of Justice Harlan will give
to President Taft the unusual and only
once paralleled duty of appointing a fifth
member of the United States Supreme
Court during his term of office. Since he
assumed the presidency, in 1909, he has
already named four associate justice^,
Lurton. Hughes. Van Devanter and
Lamar, and has promoted an associate
justice to the chief justiceship. The successor
to Justice Harlan will be the fifth
member of the court to receive his commission
from the hands of President Taft,
who will thus have named a majority of
the highest court.
Only once before has this occurred.
President Lincoln between 1862 and 1864
named five members of the Supreme
Court, including one chief justice. These
were Associate Justices Swayne, Miller,
Davis and Field and Chief Justice Chase.
President Grant in 1870-74 named four
tiirujLtrrs ui nit; tvurt, rt??uci<tie justices
Strong, Bradley and Hunt and Chief
Justice Waite. President Harrison in
188J)-tXi named four associate justices,
Brewer, Brown, Shiras and Jackson.
Of the eight surviving members of the
court today the appointments came from
the following-named Presidents: Chief
Justice White, from President Cleveland
as associate and President Taft as chief;
Associate Justices McKenna and Day,
from President McKinley; Associate Justice
Holmes, from Prestdent Roosevelt;
Associate Justices Lurton, Hughes, Van
Devanter and Lamar, from President
The death of Justice Harlan removes
the last of the elder jurists from the
bench. The member of longest service is
Chief Justice White, who was serving in
his eighteenth year in the court. He is
the only member who received his commission
from the hands of a democratic
The local dissensions which have been

Evidently the beet and most convincing

been translated into Italian and Turkish.
Motor Fire Engines.
The motor fire engine and other fire
motors appear to be coming rapidly-into
favor with fire departments, and the
prophecy is justifiable that horse-drawn
fire apparatus will soon be abandoned
It Is already obsolete, in the New York
city lire department there will be by
March. 1912, 160 motor carriages. London,
Berlin and Boston are replacing the
fire department horse with the gasoline
engine. Boston is using two motor fire
engines, and proposes promptly to add
fifty pieces of motor-driven fire-fighting
apparatus. Smaller American cities are
adopting the motor engine, truck and reel.
Increased efficiency in speed, length of
runs and pumping capacity and economy
of maintenance are urged as much more
than offsetting the higher first cost.
Washington's fire department must
soon be put upon a motor basis. Here
the distances are long and continually
lengthening, the streets are favorable
to fast run.<* and the calla. though happily
mostly** for small fires, are nu
merous. Greater speed In going Into action
will suppress these small Ares at less
cost to the department and less loss to
property owners and tenants.
With Washington's non-political and
highly efldieht fire-fighting personnel,
and with the installation of up-to-date
material, ipclpding. a&f course, a hlghpresidre
system for the congested and
Irigh-building district, the local Are department
should be a world model.
The manner In which base ball fans
from vftrious cities are rooting for Philadelphia
or Ne&- York, according to their !
league affiliations, shows a generous forgetfulness
of past experiences.

passing those of the original article." ?i
"That's right." replied Senator Sor- J

"Why did you select Charles instead ?

"Well," replied Maymie, "George said
I had eyes like violets, cheeks like wild
roses, shell-like ears and Jips like cherries."
"Very pretty." <
"Yes. But Charles said I had eyes like ^
diamonds, teeth like pearls and lips like ?
rubies. It seemed to me that his ideas
were much more practical."

"European nobility's fondness for the
American dollar knows no Jimit," said
the cynical patriot. *
"That's right," replied Mr. Cumrox.

Washington's Proud Boast. .]
From the Omaha Bee. *j
It is so comforting to hear now and ?j
then something good about our American 4
titles that what Gen. John A. Johnston ,
says of Washington. D. C\. will bear ?i
repeating. Gen. Johnston, who is one ?j
of the three Commissioners who, with ;
tlie assistance of Congress, govern the *;
District of Columbia, declares that Wash- J
ington is a city without graft, where ^
every dollar appropriated for city pur- 4
poses is so expended, and that already 4
it is one of the most beautiful capitals in
the world. Washington, of course, has ?
no city council or other such governing ?
bodies, and to this is attributed the ab- ?
sence of graft. This, inferentially, be- ?
comes a severe stricture upon such func- ?
tionaries in other cities. What we Amer- *
icans are hoping for is the day when such *
a thing cannot with impunity be said. '
But what a great thing it would be if it '
could be said of all our cities that 100 '
cents of every dollar set aside for munlci- '
pal purposes went into those channels \
and none other. The results would he re- ,
markable. We would have better paved 4
and kept streets, better lighting, better
sewerage, better regulation in every re- "
spect, and smaller taxes. That would be
the point of ehief interest to many. !
California's Experiments.
From the Philadelphia I>*dg?T.
California has made up its mind so
positively that "progressiveness" is the
sovereign balm for all the ills of misgovernment
under which it has suffered
In the past that it has taken the entire
treatment. Woman suffrage has been
carried?contrary to the earlier reports?
along with the initiative, the referendum
and the recall and the various other
amendments of the state constitution.
Each of these modern panaceas for the
defects and failures of democracy Is to
be tried out In its most "advanced" form,
and if the Callfornians are willing to
make the experiment in so whole-hearted
a way the rest of the country may watch
the results with equanimity as well as
with interest.
The Oyster Metropolis.
From the Baltimore Sun.
The Charleston News and Courier prints
the following: right on its editorial page:
"We get our oysters from Bulls bay. In
Baltimore they get them from Cow point
and serve them in milk."
This is a base libel on the finest water
fruit that ever delighted the palate of I
mankind. That oysters now and then 3
are served here in milk cannot be denied, j
but they are prepared thus for visitors '
from such benighted outlying districts as :
Charleston. The native eats them raw. :
with all the delicate flavor of nature upon !
them, or fried in the cracker dust that '
embalms them in toothsomeness. This i
is the oyster metropolis, the place where ;
you get the best that ever graced a shell.
From Tripoli to Timbuctoo, the eyes of
the hungry turn longingly toward B&lti- \
, more. They know that this is the home ,
of the perfect oyster. Bnvious criticism
Is harmless When directed against the '
gastronomic capital of the world.

sord or take up every particle of
dust with one application. They
are the only genuinely satisfactory
solution of the dust problem because
they are treated with a
chemical solution which actually
picks up and holds every particle
of dust with which it comes in
contact, the action being somewhat
similar to that of a sponge
absorbing water. The dust can? ,
not be shaken out, only washed
out with warm water. This
cleaning does not reduce the absorbing
quality of the chemical.
Indispensable for dusting and
cleaning furniture, picture moldings,
walls, fabrics, men's hats

chinaware, glassware, metalware, I
leather goods. Absolutely sani- "
tary and reliable.
