Mr. Wanamaker's Tariff Scheme.
. Bvery new suggestion about tariff revision
fails to take into account the alllmoortnnt
fact that, under the Constitution,
Congress alone has the power to
levy taxes for the support of the national
.government
the tariff board was created there
were those?some of them politician* and
Home of them business men?who seemed
. to expect that the tribunal would not only
investigate costs of production and ail
that at home and abroad, but prepare
nt\* tariff classifications and new rates
for approval by Congress, and that Con
gress would be bound to approve the
work. Such a thin?, of course, was never
on the cards. And not only did not the
tf>oard go that far, but the little the board
did was rejected by the majority party of
the House. Mr. Underwood, as House
leader, would not be guided or even advised
by the statistics the board had
jjuthered. It was held that the board,
being of republican origin, was not the
source to which democrats should look
for information.
The progressive party promises the
..creation of a tariff comm'ssion, with
larger powers than those conferred on the
, tar.if board, and large enough to give it
a share in tariff making. It is to be
something more than a mere tribunal
lor garnering statistics.
And now comes John W&n&m&ker with
the suggestion of a new department of
r the government, "whose head shall be a
cabinet officer?the Secretary of Manufactures.
Tariff and Customs?who shall
be empowered to act, with the approval
of the President and his cabinet, to promote
trade, negotiate new markets, reciprocities
and new tariff ratings, to be
reduced wherever and whenever possible,
^without delays, always maintaining, before
everything else, the steadiness and
enlargement of home Industries."
Congress, it will oe observed, counted
out completely. The overshadowing
'questions of trade and taxation transferred
to an executive, who is to be advised
by any agencies he may choose to
-designate.
As matters stand, the thine could not
he done; and before matters could be
changed to make the thing possible, we
should have a campaign in this country
going to the very root of taxation. The
present means of gathering tariff statistics
may be inadequate. Many politicians and
atB many business men think they are.
And certainly in revising the tariff at any
time Congress should have the aid of all
information available.
But. at last, the power of taxation rests
with Congress, and that power embraces
the power of life and death. Congress in
the exercise of that power can either
Create or destroy wealth, and It would not
If It could, and could not if it would, delegate
even a portion of Its tremendous
taxing authority. If Congress hitherto
.has failed with the tariff, the solution is
a Congress better prepared to deal with
tne question, for, under the Constitution,
Congress cannot be eliminated.
Balkan Allies Advancing.
Thus far in the Balkan-Turkish campaign
there has been an almost uninterrupted
course of victories for the allies.
The most important movement has been
that of the Bulgar-Serb advance upon
Adrianople. which, while not yet result4ng
in the fall of that important position,
has nevertheless yielded results fully
demonstrative of superior soldiery on the
aggressive side. At latest accounts the
allied armies had taken possession of the
town of Eski-Baba, which lies southeast
of Adrianople within ten miles of the railway
line to Constantinople. This menaces
the communications of the Turks
and threatens Constantinople itself. The
fall of Adrianople Is now likely, and unless
the allies are seriously reversed they
are in a position to strike a mortal blow
at the Turk in a short time. So successful,
indeed, has been the campaign not
only in the east, but in the west and
south, where the Serbs and Greeks have
respectively been operating, that there is
How talk of Intervention by the powers
to restore peace. The allies, however.
Are in a position to continue their campaign
from a military point of view. The
only question as to their position is one
of finances. Thus far no statement has
been made as to the source or size of
their war funds. The vigor with which
they have pressed the fighting suggests
that they realize the need of a short and 1
comparatively inexpensive campaign.
?
A certain disposition on the part of Col.
Itoosevelt to take the attempt on his life
rather good-naturedly will not cause vigilance
in the matter of public policy to be
relaxed in dealing with the assassin.
Felix Diaz is hoping that M&dero will
not be guided by what his Uncle Porflrlo
would probably have done with a prisoner
under sirai ar circumstances.
Three Fatal Motor Accidents.
Three lives have been sacrificed in the
streets of Washington in a period of as
many days. In each case a motor car.
apparently driven carefully, has struck
a girl or a woman and death has resulted
after s few hours. In one case
the mishap occurred in the crowded business
section, an elderly woman becoming
confused in the press of traffic. In
the second instance a woman of middle
age was struck at a less crowded but
ihuch used corner while trying to cross
the street In the third and latest Instance
a little girl was hit as she was
passing from curb to street car when the
street was otherwise practically unoccupied.
There is no disposition apparently
4n onv r?f t hocp r?ajt*>a to Ijtv Klamp uriAn
motorist on the score of reckless
?i riving.
Probably all of these will be formally
declared to have been "accidental" and
unavoidable. Yet the concurrence of the
three fatalities necessari'y impresses the
public with the danger that lurks In the
rtreet as the result of high-powered
engines, supposedly under strict control
?if their operators, but obviously, as in
these cases, not capable of meeting the
necessities arising from unexpected
actions by pedestrians. In other words,
even with supposed ly careful drivers,
there has been in these instances at the
least no reserve of control giving the
necessary margin of safety for the people
in the street. Of course, it is possible
for a pedestrian to be thrown to tbe
ground by a mere bumping against an
automobile, in such a manner as to cause
a fracture of the skull and consequent
death. This would not necessarily argue
lack of control or caution on the part of
the motorist, but the public lias the right
to regard itself as protected by the requirement
that the motorist should exercise
the utmost caution, being in possession
of a powerful agency which is
subject to derangement, which may sup
on wet pavement, which may be thrown
into a blockade by an instantaneous
change In the traffic situation, which
Is. in short, a vehicle of potential death
at all times.
There Is no way to safeguard the lives
of children who persist in darting suddenly
from one side of the street to the
other in play. Given an ordinary degree
of careful driving, when such mishaps
occur they are excusable on the score
of being actually unavoidable. But In the
ordinary uses of the street the burden
of care nusst rest ui>on the motorist
rather than the pedestrian. The old rule
of caution at railroad crossings, requiring
drivers to "stop, look and listen,"
was justilied on the ground that the
track was a fixed right of way for trains.
The rails themselves were a warning
of possible peril. In a sense this same
injunction rests upon all pedestrians in
streets as regards the vehicular traffic.
In some parts of Europe the pedestrian J
Is charged with all the responsibility,
being occasionally arrested for obstructing
traffic when struck by a motor car
or an omnibus. This idea does not obtain
in the United States, and as long
'J ? u.d.wtri'inc u ro
as ic uuea iiul, tvcu ?> n 1 ic iu.*? ? ^ i
suT<posed to exercise a reasonable degree j
of camion before venturing oft' the curb,
public sentiment at least will bold accountable
all drivers of powerful vehicles
who are instrumental In causing
Injury or death. Only by keeping this
burdt-n squarely placed upon the drivers
of ears will the streets be safe for
pedestrians, whatever may be the degree
of caution exercised by those on foot.
The Fight for Life.
"Tubehculosls Sunday" was observed in
most of the Washington pulpits yesterday
by the delivery of sermons on the
subject of the public health, with special
reference to the disease once regarded
as hopelessly incurable, but now
rated as preventable and unnecessary. In
the fight against the "great white
plague" rublic sentiment is a most powerful
factor, and in the formation of
that sentiment the churches can. and do,
exert a valuable influence. The prime
necessity in this endeavor to safeguard
human life is to spread broadcast a correct
understanding of the nature of the
disease, the possibility of its communication
and the mutual dependence of one
group or class of people upon another
for their physical safety.
Clergymen and members of congregations
can devote themselves to ho more
practically Christian endeavor than to
spread broadcast the gospel of health and
cleanliness and sanitary living. This is
a moral question in the highest senseThere
is no Immunity from the diseases
that spread from person to person, creeping
out from insanitary hovels and alleys.
Every family in Washington is potentially
exposed to this danger, for none is
isolated from all possible contact. As
long as the laws of hygiene are not observed
rigorously the very air we breathe
is contaminated, and so it is the business of
those highest in the social scale, as well
as all others, to work in self-defense, to
show that "enlightened selfishness" that
is the essence of civilization.
The fight against tuberculosa, however,
is more than a matter of preaching and
educating and warning. It calls for constructive
work, for the eradication of
noisome slums, the replacement of Insanitary
alley dwellings with clean,
healthful habitations. How many Washingtonians,
listening yesterday to sermons
on the vital need of prosecuting
this warfare for the sake of the health
of all the people, are the owners of alley
houses in this city which, barely meeting
the least requirements of the law,
are sources of peril to Washington? How
many have taken rich profits from such
properties without reckoning the price
paid by other people in terms of health
and life? There is no escaping the responsibility
that rests upon those who
In the face of plainly established facts
continue to maintain properties of this
character because they "pay." So that
while the unfortunate dwellers in the
slums must be educate*], must be made
to realize what they are required to do
in order to avoid disease, the process of
education should not halt here, but
should go on, to teach the owners of the
insanitary properties the duty they
owe to their community and to themselves
and their families and persuade
them, in the name of humanity, to correct
the evils which spring almost directly
from their cuiidity.
Fear of the appearance in this country
or London's militant methods moderated
when it was learned that the rather
fierce argument among New York suffragettes
was over a luncheon check and not
a question of public policy.
In addition to the satisfaction created
by bumper crops, the public is finding
cause for congratulation in the kind of
autumn weather that reduces coal bills.
r i >
The manner in which the Montenegrins
have been handling the Turks is calculated
to make the Italians feel that they
might have done eons.derably better.
Next month will be the time to dwell
strongly on reminiscences about great and
good publie men who were never better
than near-Presidents.
Danger in a Big Majority.
The democrats are expecting to win the
presidency and both houses of Congress.
A House majority larger than that they
now show is on their card. If fortune
responds to their calculations they will
secure the strongest hold on affairs
known in the country for many years. At
the start they will "have the world in a
sling."
Is this desirable? Will It make for
successful administration and a long
lease of power?
in pom nouses or congress the democrats
have men of large experience. In
the House they are particularly well
served; and while the changes in the
Senate of recent years have not been to
their advantage, and in the coming retirement
of Mr. Bailey they are booked
for a distinct loss, they wili yet be in
good shape there after March 4.
It is in the White House they will
make their experiment. Mr. Wilson is
new to politics, and a stranger to national
affairs. For the first time, he will
hold the reins over a long team. Can he
keep the leaders in the middle of the
road and the wheelers moving? The Job is
not easy, even for a seasoned whip. Mr.
Cleveland f&l.ed with it: and when ha

What might have been the d.fferenee
two years ago while the Payne tariff bill
was shaping If the republican majority
n the House had been only ten or a dozen,
and in the Senate only Ave or six? A
more satisfactory tariff measure, un- i
doubtedly. If nearly every vote had been ,
necessary to the education of a law, the ;
law would have been more carefully con- \
structed. All factional troubles within the \
ranks of the majority would have re- ;
quired nice adjustment.
But in the House Mr. Payne could
spare a number of votes and still have s
enough to pass a bill, while in the Senate J
Mr. Aldrich?an expert craftsman and ?
tactician?was strong enough to do. and | ?
did, what he pleased. The republican j 3
kickers kicked, but kicked against the, -2
pricks. They were not numerous enough 3
to make any impression on the actual 3
situation. 3
And not only that. The republicans ^
since 1896 had been laboring under an 3
embarrassment of riches. Everything had 3
been coming their way. One House after ?
another had been won by them, and the 5
presidency four times running. They had ;j
grown 10 aespise ineir opponents, uuu -<
those opponents, so long under the har- 3
row, had come to feel that there was 3
some ground for the appraisement.
At last the crash came. The series of 3
largo majorities had engendered over- a
confidence and Internal strife, and the 3
party paid Its first penalty In November, 3
lyio. 5
A scrutiny of the material presented 3
for the consideration of voters Invites 3
curiosity as to what some of the cam- $
palgn organ.zatlons do with all the &
money they get from the capitalists. 3
Mr. Taft declares that the President is ^
a very busy man. If he is not the fact
Is duo to some oversight on the part of 3
the Wilson campaigners. 3
Students of infantile paralysis again 3
bring the house fly into attention as a ^
creature for which no insidious errand 3
Is too despicable. 3
3
A number of Cubans are inclined to 3
think the old-fashioned insurrection was y
a great deal more interesting than a 3
regular election. 3
It has been observed that the speech 3
that did Col. Roosevelt most good was 3
one that he kept in his pocket Instead of
delivering it. 3
There is reason for Becker to feel that
at least the case against him would not ^
have been any worse if he had gone on %
the stand.

There must be some psychological explanation
for it, as, for instance, just at _

brain and scrambles it up so it cannot

his greatest hold in this world is murky u
