A Vital Attack.
The point of order pending against the
-inking fund appropriation of the Dis
trict bill la a* unmistakable and as dead
ly an attack upon the organic act as the
direct proposition of its partial repeal.
The organic act. as it has been con-,
>trued for over thirty years, applies the)
half-and-half principle to the District's'
?iebt of 1STP. as well as to current Dis-!
trii-t expenses. The Johnson proposition '
?ould in effect repeal the organic act
>o far as It has beeu held to apply to
lh? District deht. It would not only pre
vent further half-and-half payments on
tjiis debt, but would furnish the basis
??f a demand for millions of reimburse
ment for national payments on this ac
count during the last thirty-three years
The successive elimination of larg>e
items of District expenditure from the
application of the organic act is In es
sence the gradual repeal of the organic
act.
It is too late for Washington to say or
do anything that will affect the decision
of the House on this question so vital to
itu welfare. It must rely and does rely
with confidence upon the assurances of
a.isenee >>f danger in this respect from its
sincere friends among the capital's con
stitutional legislators.
All the power l? with Congress. Only
words ore left to Washington, and there
ha\e been indications, so far as the
Ilouse I* concerned, that even words a e
not desired.
Washington understands the situation
even If its acts and words do not show
h great and natural excitement. It is
v.ot imbecile: only impotent, trusting,
hopeful.
I
The Transfer and Utilities Bills.
The prompt passage by the Senate of
ilie <?allinger free transfer trill puts the
matter on the way to early passage by
the House at this session. Gaining Its
approval In the upper chamber without
debate or a dissenting vote, it goes to the
House with unmistakable prestige which
should win for it a respectful reception
?there. It Is broad in its terms, and while
providing for a practically unlimited re
ciprocal transfer system, the only excep
tion being the provision that the com
i?anies can prevent such use of transfers as
to permit a round-trip ride for one fare.
It Incidentally establishes, for this par
ticular purpose, the District Commission
ers as a public utilities commission. The
Commissioners are given authority to ad
just disputes that may arise between the
corporations regarding the terms of the
giving and taking of transfers, with an'
appeal to the Supreme Court of the Dis
trict. This is in line with the provisions
of the pending public utilities bill, which*
establishes the Commissioners definitely
?as a commission to control all the serv
ices utilized by the people.
It is to be hoped that Congress will not
rest at this session with the passage of a
universal transfer bill, which reaches only
one of the var ious questions affecting the
?publh- convenience, comfort and safety
no? requiring adjustment, but will pro
ved diligently with the consideration and
I i-.ssagc of the utilith-s measure itself,
through which the community is best to
served. It is more important to
,tiie community at large that the car serv
ice shoul.l be frequent, speedy, comfort
able and sanitary than that there should
in; a system of universal transfers, con
venient and ecouomical as the latter
will be.
\ndrew t'arneaic is too much of a peace i
to start a:i altercation about a I
? nty-r-igiu-dorar-and-sevcnty-cents ex- J
p? us- account. At the same time he
itn -l b?- <-aret'ul about adopting a course
w ':irh might suggest f that !<?? is trying to
"lip ftie government a rebate.
With so much political business requir
ing attention it is safe to j-av that cir
cumstances cannot arise that would lead
to an excessively prolonged session of
i onaTesi'.
When some of our prominent men de
clare that they have nothing; to say it
merely means that they have decided to
pause and catch their breath.
The Ira and Steel-Schedule.
The democrats of the House have elect
ed to Inaugurate their fight at this session
for tariff revision with the iron and steel
schedule, and their bill has received cau
cus Indorsement. It will be pressed im
mediately for House action, with Mr
Underwood leading. What is to be the
republican reply?
X# great attention should be paid now
to the democratic change of program.
dCo matter whan or In what shape the
Wool schedule Is to appear, here la the
Iron and ateel schedule, and It should re
ceive the proper attention by the minor
ity. Mere objection on general lines will
not meet the occasion. The republicans
ahould present a schedule of their own.
drafted as though they were in control
and charged with the Initiative. In that
way only wlil the country be able to
judge for action in November the dif
ference between the parties as to protec
tion and revenue.
^he tariff board, it Is true, has not re
S >rted on Iron and steel. But that sched
ule i* not nearly so complicated and dif
ficult as wool, and a republican schedule
:-*ed upon Information now in hand de

, outside bin own party? If Ms schedule

not prefer to make them to Ills own siue
rattier than to Mr. Vnderwood.
It is charged that tiie democrats do not
desire and are not tigurtng on the revision
? of a single tariff schedule at this session:
that their plan is to appeal to the country
' a&atn against the Payne law in Its entire
ty, In the feeling that they can win on
| such an aj>peal the second time. However
i this msy he. the republicans owe it to
themselves and the country to make a
sincere and aggressive effort to do some
thing at this session on the tariff question
of practical value, and as a response in
part to the verdict rendered at the polls
in Of debate there has been "a
w*?ry wetter." Both .sides have abused
patience. If Mr. Tnderwood Is "blurting'."
the duty of the man sitting opposite is
to "call" him.
The Milk Supply.
A'most important work is being done
by the Association for the Prevention of
Tuberculosis in endeavoring to secure a
svstjem of milk Inspection and treatment
that will lower the percentage of danger
from this source of food supply- Start
ing on the well tQunded assumption that
tuberculosis is conveyed through tho1
milk, the association Is now seeking a
practical preventive against the importa- j
tion into the District of dtiease-infected
supply. Recognizing that wholesale herd
slaughter Imposes a heavy burden upon
the dairymen, some of whom do not ac
knowledge the sufficiency or conclusive
ness of the tuberculin test, the associa
tion is now proposing a compromise
whereby the public may be safeguarded
through pasteurization. If this plan
works out it is believed to be possible to
guarantee the freedom of the milk from j
a taint of tuberculosis without causing
great losses to the dairy farmers, with (
a consequent certain Increase In the cost;
of all milk products to the. consumer, j
This expectation is based upon the as
sumption that pasteurization Is a safe
guard against tubercular infection. Scien
tists agree on this point and the local
association is proceeding confidently in
recognition of the theory.
Co-operation between the dairymen ot |
the milk-supplying area around Wash- ?
ington and the local health authorities
cannot be absolutely assured without |
some form of legislation. A bill is now ,
being prepared by the president of the
tuberculosis association embodying the (
resolutions Just adopted by the organiza- ,
tion. which will soon be introduced in
Congress. For the sake of the public j
health it is to be hoped that it will. Ik* \
pressed vigorously for |>assa?c at this j
session. It is of the utmost importance :
that the milk supply should be main- j
talned upon a high standard of purity, j
Not only tuberculosis but typhoid fever is
communicated by means of milk, und the
local sickness rate is kept much higher j
than it should b?- because of the lack of an
effective process of protection. The states
of Maryland and Virginia do practically
nothing toward efficient dairy farm in
spection. and the District is left to its
ow n devices, w ith a limited means for
inspection and a law which If thoroughly j
enforced involves an immense burden of
cost upon the dairymen. The announce
ment that the milk producers are Inclined
to accvpt the combination of a tuberculin
test with the alternative of pasteurization
Is gratifying evidence of progress toward
an efficient and comparatively inexpensive
sysjtem of protection.
?
The Kinmundy Wreck.
A dispatch from Champaign. III., re
garding the Kinmundy train wreck on the ;
Illinois Central which cost the lives of
several railroad officials raises an inter
esting question. The conductor of the
forward train. It appears from the pre
liminary Inquiry, had been notified to
?'look out for No. 3." which was follow
ing him. The trains were running on a.
ten-minute headway. The conductor of
the forward train failed, it is charged, to
take the necessary precautions and No.
3 was upon him before It could be sig
naled. Is it possible that the Illinois
Central works without a block system?
When the accident was first reported it
was assumed, of course, that this was
another case of ignored signal and the
engineer of a following train taking
chances on going into an already occu
pied block. But evidently this was not
the case. Each conductor was to pro
tect himself from the train behind, with
only ten minutes of margin. In other
words, everything depended upon the
flagman sent back from the stopping;
tralif, probably the least effective mode
of "protection" that can be conceived. If
that was the system, no finding can pos
sibly meet the requirements of this case
that does not lay the blame specifically
upon the corporation for maintaining Its
line without blocks. The flagman system
is almost a deliberate invitation to dis
aster.
Any temptations there mi^rht have been
for Dr. Wiley or .Mr. McCfc.bc to ?loat
over each other were carefully removed.
There is no way of telling how Tilden
would hav?- liked that temporary confu
sion of identities by Henry Watterson.

The Baltimore convention will decide
whether Mr. Brynn%can confer candidacy
bj a shake of the hand.
Baltimore and Chicago.
Chairman Mack's arrangements indi
cate expectations of a humming conven
tion at Baltimore. And should not it be
one? That was a weft attended and in
teresting convention at Denver four years
ago. And yet the candidate had been
named and the terms of the platform
plainly foreshadowed months before.
Those who went to Denver had only a
love feast In view. They knew what was
coming, and wanted to participate In a
rousing handshaking and exhibition of
good nature.
For Baltimore something very different
is pn the cards. If present signs hold,
the democrats this year will "have It
out" In the most vigorous fashion. It Is
today anybody's race for the purse, and
anybody's guess as to the platform. Mr.
Bryan, while still powerful. Is not now
all-powerful, and while it is known about
what the conservatives want for a party
deliverance, and also what the progress-1
Ives want, the present lining up leaves j
much in doubt.
As men and politicians are constituted,
a fight attracts a larger crowd than a
love feast. Scrapping appeals to w hat Is
called red blood, or old-fashioned human
nature. It stirs beholders. Men pack
space to see the bout and how the fight
ers carry themselves. They want to be
present and cheer the winner.
By the same token, Chicago this tear
should witness a far larger crowd than
assembled there four years ago. While
air. Taft did not have the hold uii hit
party that Mr. Bryan did on his, his hold
was so strong his nomination was a safe
bet. And thiye was little difficulty In
fejlnfin# It abfut. The only stirring prt
Uminary was the demonstration In honor
of Mr. Roosevelt, which was not intended
a? a menace to Mr. Taft.
This time there is something different.
Mr. Taft is under tire, and will continue
to be to the end. His friends do not un
derrate either the nature or the resources
of the opposition. They expect to win,
but know that they must contend for all
they Ret. The public, likewise advised,
?will !Tock to witness the encounter. Can
i there, will there, be a slip betwixt the
cup and the Hp? Will It be possible for
the anti-Taft men to unite at the, last
moment, and, with the aid of gallery en
thusiasm. stampede the convention to
Mr. Roosevelt? The mere suggestion of
I such a tiling makes it certain that the
i republican convention, and Chicago while
j the convention is in session, will be
' packed by politicians "in interest and
, sightseers eager for a show.
Hullabaloo is not always, if ever, con
ducive to the best results in such mat
ters. \VI.?dom is iiot asHociable with
> frenzy, itut us our national convention*
' have become great spectacles, the. proper
sta^e mountings should be provided for;
? and both Mr. Mack and Mr. New are jus
i tltied lu the steps they are taking to at
j tract and ehtertain the public in June.

Dress for the Weather.
From tli? ' lorelanO leader.
Many people who are not poor suffered
from the cold during 41ie arctic wave
that swept over a great part of the coun
try. They needlessly submitted them
selves to exposure that is likely to bring
on dangerous sickness. And there is no
certainty that there will not be weather
fully a* cold as any that has been ex
perienced this winter, before the end of
February. The trouble is that too many
; do not dress for the weather. Extreme
low temperature is so rare, except for a
short time in midwinter, that the average
person does not prepare for it. He sallies
forth to* office, store or factory, in zero
weather, clad In garments intended for
use with the thermometer above the
freezing point. He does not like to wear
a fur cap with earlaps. arctic overshoes
and heavy mittens because they are not
in style. He prefers the neat and thin
shoe, the derby hat and the kid gloves.
He suffers and takes the consequences,
sometimes in the form of pneumonia.
Key West
Kjvui the Boston Tran*ertpt.
From Key West, the squalid, straggling
and fortuitous settlement of wreckers and
others of doubtful quality, to Key West,
the terminus of one of the most distlnc
: tlvc and daring railway lines in the civi
| lized wor.d, is a remarkable record of
' progress in ninety years. Even yet the
; population is said to show traces of its
j early character; but its fine harbor, its
; great and growing trade in cigars,
sponges, salt, fruits and vegetables, its
large and costly fortifications, and its de
licious winter climate must sooner or later
make it a great port, witli a population
rivaling perhaps that of New Orleans.
Oddly enough, it has been a chartered
city almost as long as Boston, though
when Its city charter was granted in IStti
it was still considerably peopled by beach
j combers and the like, who liabitually
I lived upon the misfortunes of sea-going
I folk. I'p to the close of the Spanish war
; Key West was our most southern city

Cnt in Steel Duties.
From (lie New York Evening Post.
The introduction of a 4)111 cutting down
by something like 50 per cent the duties
In the iron and steel schedule is a good
stroke on the part of the democrats of
the House. It pushes again to the front
the broad question of tariff reform, and
puts the republicans on the defensive.
Tin? immense development of the steel
industry, its concentration largely in the
hands of one gigantic corporation, the
statements made st various times by
some of Its foremost representatives as to
the ability of this country to produce at
lower cost than any other, and the great
volume of exports which bears out these
assertions ? all these things combine to
give to the proposal tor reducing duties
in this line nn exceptionally strong posi
tion.
Unusual Candor.
From the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Senator Cummins says squarely that he
will run tar President, which is candid if
not fashionable.
