The Board of Trade. The Washington Board of Trade* has ; c.osed another year of efficient civic service. At th" annual myelins last i night President Moses, in his repo t. sur- , veyed the activities of the organization : during the twelve month1! just closing. i and showed work that hid been done in j the direction of rea i/.itig the ideals upon which Washington is established and ( pointed out th-3 work remaining to he done. Particularly ir. the matter of ; public parks is there need of vigorous ; endeavor by all the local forces making ; for the realization of contemplated p ans. The Boa: d of Trade has recently under- j taken to create a national public senti- ! in* ut In behalf o? the consummation of . tin part of the McMillan commission's ;.r<-at project which provides a system , of parks to encircle the city. Although ' eleven years ago the commission de- ; clared for the early acquisition of spaces ? cf natural beauty Tying about the capital and the areas necessary for the com- j pietion of a great chain of reservations, i tittle has been done at this time to se cure possession of this land, some of which, indeed, has already passed beyond ?ach. In the course ol? his address 1'; esidrnt Moses emphasized the value of concerted action- by all who wish to see Washington develop into a great wor'.d capital worthy of the American republic, and pointed out. with the assistance of illustrations, the attractions and impos ing features of Paris. Here lie oppor tunities for park works surpassing even those of the French capital, and with the beginning already accomplished a : "suit can be gained at moderate expense that will give the American people cause to be unqualifiedly proud of their na tional city. References in the course of the presi dent** annual report to the work of the individual committees of the board re veal a constant and progressive activity along the lines long ago laid down by the Board of Trade for the evolution here of a model community. Work is being done for a moSe perfect system of public play grounds. for a larger police force, for a better municipal equipment in every re spect. for more efficient schools and for tha improvement of sanitary conditions. With a membership increased to be yond the thousand murk, with a compre hensive and consistent program of work in contemplation, with a spirit of prog ress animating all committees and a long j record of substantial achievements for ! the evolution of the ideal Washington, the Board of Trade stands now In a posi tion of great usefulness to the community. : nil it is gratifying to find from the pro ? '?edlngs at the annual meeting that .iere is every reason to expert a con tinuation of its servh*es to this point. A Remarkable War. The war in Turkey will probably become of historical Importance because of t^e final break-up of the Turkish empire In Burope, but beyond tiiat it will be nota ble for its brevity and sanguinary char acter. From the outset the Balkan allies have forced the ?ight'ng at an unprece dented spe? ]. Their campaign has been approached In modern years for vigor and si arpness of attack only by the Japanese assault upon the Russians- They have fought with almost the impetuous smart ness of action of a semi-organize 1 guerrilla force, giving the Turks prac tiea'.y no time for recuperation, taking them by surprise at point after point and overcoming by their enterprise the advantage which naturally lies with the defensive army. Doubtless when the record of this remarkable campaign has been written it will be found that at least the Bulgarians and the Servians have vir tually set a new pace in warfare. Within a month front t''e tirst blows of the war the Bulgarian army is at the very gates of Constantinople, hav'ng conquered the Turks in numerous battles and sweeping over fortifications that were suprosed to interpose an impassable barrier to a hos tile advance upcti the capital. In every department, it appeals, the allies have been tlte superiors of the Turks, but par ticularly in point of supplies. Though constituting a veritable tlving column, the Bulgarian force has been kept provisioned adequately from the beginning, while the Turks have suffered severely from in sufficient munition* and food. Superior generalship is In evidence at every stage of this campaign on the side of the allies and whatever may be the political out come of the war the military prestige of the Turk has been destroyed, so that no longer will lie be the bugaboo of clviliz-i ti'?n that he his remained for years. Col ltiK-.e\e't ii;>\ing s^nl > congratu lation* to P; esldent-elect Wilson, now finds opportunity to extend his more enthusiasm felie'tatlons to the bull? moose party lor reasons which it may take him a considerable time to ex plain Among 'he serious explosions to be expected from dynamite as handled by Ortie McManlgal are the outbursts of public- indignation. Mr. German and Mr. Martin. History ecrtlnues to repeat itself. Twenty \?ar> ;ij?n the democrats con trolled the House by a large, but the Senate by onl\ * small, major'ty. The tarifT was the issue. In the House a tariff bi'-l acceptable to Mr. Cleveland was I ft wed with little difficulty. The protec tion democrats could not. and so did not. tiv to halt it. They relied on their breth ren in the Senate to remedy matters, ar.d ??ad grounds for their faith. Protection democrats were few in the Senate, but ? i.fllcient. and under Mr, Gorman's lead ership they put up a fight. Their votes ucre necessary to tariff legis'atlon. and -.?> the> t ei ast the House bill in shape to -??lit themselves forced their work on the ! o ;ae, and fought Itr. Cleveland to m ?n ?? anJ a standstill. They had their v The next Congress will show a top I eavy democratic majority in the House, but a vety light one In the Senate. It . tight not to be difficult for the free trade democrats of the House to prepare and i s a mcatur? or measures through that body leaning In the direction of the Bal timore platform, but will the democrats of the Senate acquiesce? Whatever -passes the Senate must poll every democratic vote in the chamber. v There are protection democrat* In the i Senate, juet as twenty years ago, and probably as many. With them the tariff is a local issue. Their constituents are profiting by protection, and want the policy continued. Mr. Bryan's views about the constitutionality of that policy are not valued at a bawbee by them. They know what has been good for them, and want more of It. ' Twenty years ago Mr. Gorman was the democratic leader in the Senate. He was a business man and knew what business desired, and taw that business got more than it had obtained in the House. He was an avowed protectionist, though no defender of the protection law then on the books. He favored revision, but on lines recognizing protection as both con stitutional and wise. He got a good deal of what he wanted, but. as the result of the cross-firing between the House and ! Senate, the democratic party and the country suffered appallingly. The party was wrecked and the country reduced to a souphouse basis. Today Mr. Martin is the democratic leader in the Senate. Will he remain so after March 4? He Is both a lawyer and a business man, amj ranks high In both .leids. He l~a* voted for protective duties, and on that account Is under charges by the Bryanites. who rate him as a protec tionist and ncar-republican. If he retains the Senate leadership will it be possible for him to work in harmony with the House leadership on the tariff? If not. by organizing the protection democrats of the chamber he will be able to force his and their views on whatever tariff revi sion is attempted. Mr. Martin on March t will enter on his fourth consecutive term in the Senate, and has not only ?-tbility but v?rv large experience as equip ment for his senatorial activity. Mr. Wi'son and Aguinaldo. Aguinaldo redivivus. He sees in Mr. Wilson's election 'immediate independ ence ' for the Philippines, an! ten thou sand paraders in Manila and twenty thousand gathered to hear addresses are heartened by the same notion. Is the notion justified? Does the dem ocratic victory signify any such thing? How many men who supported Mr. Wil son for President gave a thought on election day to the Philippine question? How many delegates to the Baltimore convention who threw their hats into the air when the platform was ]-ro?laimed knew or cared w' at it contained about the future of our far eastern possessiens? So few In either case that the number Is negligible. The Philippines did not figure in the contest, either for the Baltimore nomination, cr later, at all. Yet here we see the opponents in the islands of American rule construing Mr. ilson's election as a triumph for scut tle. and demonstrating to hasten it- They want an independent government imme diately If not sooner, and with banners and bands and marching clubs, red tire and red eloquence, are nudging t'^e victor before he has had time to take office. While he is meditating about minor mat ters, like the tariff, the trusts, the cabi net, ami an extra session of Congress, the impatient Httle brown brothers break in with their appeal. Well, what is Mr. Wilson going to do about it? How does he read that plank of the platform? He does not re gard the Baltimore deliverance as a "pro gram. ' He has not accepted any part of it definitely except that feature declaring in general terms against the unworthi ness of the republican party. He does not believe that a protective tarifT is un constitutional. He is .silent on the sub ject of a single term for the President of the I nlted States. He is as indefinite as to a policy for dealing with the trusts as he well could be. But here is a demand that he say some thing about a matter fraught with dan ger to him, his party and the country. The 1* llipinos, with their famous agitator leading, are parading for "immediate in lependence." They want the (nlted States to pull up stakes and get out. They declare themselves ready to take over and conduct their own affairs, and point to the Baltimore platform as to the chart for American duty. Is Mr. Wilson for scuttle? Will lie in augurate his administration with scut tle a feature of his "program"? Will he convert the democratic party into an Aguinaldo Aid Society? Will he cap the smaller ravy rec-ord of his party in Con gress with a withdrawal of ships from Philippine waters? It does not seem likely, but in some way something to the point should be said by or for him on the subject, in time to bead off what if al lowed to proceed unchecked may prove an expensive misapprehension for us and them by the more turbulent portion of the Filipino people. England proposes to prohibit the publi cation of portraits of people who become notorious through divorce proceedings. There are press agents who will resent this. Jack Johnson has handicapped h's j reputation in a way that eliminates ; any hope he might have had of pre senting a monologue or playing I'ncle Tom. It is sometimes difficult to realize the "all seriousness of the Balkan sit uation owing to the tendency of the imagination to people the scenes with choruses instead of armies. There are various democratic editors and orators whose remarks will be read with deep interest as soon as the new cabinet is announced. A law prohibiting general contributions !o rampa'gn funds would compel the financial backer to come out frankly and be his own candidate. Thanksgiving day, owing to its proxim ity to election day, always has to be rele brated with a few mental reservations. Good Work for Public Safety. If the men who have been held by the coroner's jury are in fact the ones re sponsible for causing the death the other night of Charles Satterfield, who was kill ed b> a motor car near the Pennsylvania avenue bridge, the District police are en titled to high praise for their promptness and skill in tracing the offenders. The case greatly -shocked the local public. A man was hit by an automobile at night and those who were driving the car paid no attention to him. speeding away in the darkness and leaving him to die. It seemed at first a hopeless task to trace and identify the motor party, but judging from the proceedings at the coroner's in quest yesterday this has been done with little loss of time. The importance ol this proceeding cannot be overestimated It is vitally essential to the public safety that motorists should be made to appreci ate their responsibilities and held to a reckoning for the consequence of danger ous speed in the streets. While it Is con ceivable that the persons whose cat struck Satterfield the other night wen unaware of the mishap, yet It Is by 11c means probable that this was the case The chances are overwhelming that th< man was seen and that it was knowr that he was hit, and that the car wai speeded away In an endeavor lo escapt detection and possible punishment. Ii those who are now held were the occu pants of the "death car" they have offended doubly by their heartless indif ference to the consequences of their reck less speed. Every prominent democrat who spends much time in Washington will be an object of attention from real estate firms with desirable residential prop erty on hand. Austria, in spite of the enormous revenue it derives from the traffic in Viennese opera, wants every .oppor tunity to share in the more prosaic forms of the world's commerce. In spite of his kind and encouraging words. Col. Roosevelt sees no occasion to shoulder a transparency and turn out as one of the willing walkers in a suffragette parade. Any man who is tempted to gloom and discouragement ought to pause in grateful reflection on his luck in not being the Sultan of Turkey. SHOOTING STARS. BY PHILANDER JOHNSON. Generous Explanation. "What makes Bliggins so exceedingly rude in his manner of refusing a re quest?" "Tenderheartedness. Vie sympathizes ! so intensely with you that it makes him j nervous and irascible." I . An Apology for Chatter. : If all were perfect whom we've met. When from the home we venture out. All free from folly r.nd regret. What would there be to talk about? Baffled. "I went into po'itlcs to become known, said the patient and industrious man. "Didn't you succeed?" "No. They proceeded to put me on one of these perfunctory committees that rim ply call attention to a man s ob curity." Self-Sustained Humor. "Don't you think Mr. Chcrtleton is a good story teller?" "Yes," replied Miss Cayenne. "I am al ways relieved when he tells a story. He laughs at it himself so much that he doesn't notice whether you are doing so or not." Educational Discipline. "Do you think it is proper for a teach er to inflict corporal punishment on dis orderly pupils." "I never thought about that side of the case. My trouble has always been to keep my boys from trounein' the master. The Old-Time Persuader. Oh. don't you miss the fellow With the disposition mellow Who had one little trick that made the world go like a song: Xo matter what his mission. With his pleasant disposition He bred a cheery eontidence that nothing could go wrong. For he'd bring to each occasion Such sociable persuasion That your grouch, however mighty, could not carry very far; For his way was so beguiling That you'd soon reflect the smiling He brought to bear as affably he said, "Have a Cigar:'' The weed was often bitter And you yearned to be a quitter; 1 . Hut you puffed away and wouldn't hurt his feelings for the earth. For the v3pors upward flowing Were like the clouds they're blowing When Indians smoke the peace pipe and pow-wow for iill they're worth. His genial mood controlled you And you listened while he told you About his goods. At selling things lie surely was a star; And his powers energetic And amazingly magnetic Seem, largely, to arise from that one phrase, "Have a Cigar!" The Third Term and the Second. From the Obli-ago Hecord Herald. There is an anti-third term organiza tion in the country, and it announces that the work of putting through an amendment making any kind of third term constitutionally impossible is to be carried on with vigor. On the other hand, democratic politicians, with 1916 In mind, are already beginning to dis courage the idea of limiting the Presi dent to a single term, in spite of the declaration of the Baltimore platform in favor of a single term. Observers in Washington predict the failure of any effort to deal constitutionally with the question of presidential terms. Concerning "Fall Air." From lb" Chicago Journal. This is the season when many house holders shut windows and bar doors against the "raw fall air." I'nfortunate ly for this plan, fall air is the only au to be had at this time of year. You may ! take your fall air "raw" and fresh, or j you may take it close and cooked. But fall air you must have, unless you quit breathing. Raw air is better than foul air. For every "cold" caught out of twenty are caught in the house, ajid usually in close, badly ventilated rooms. Fresh air is just as necessary in fall as in spring, in winter as in summer; and those who try to starve their lungs of oxygen always pay the price. After the Robber! From the Pittsburgh Chronicle-Telegraph. The quietness of the recent elections in Cuba was generally regarded as proof of progress in the island republic. Since then, however, there has been an event showing a much greater advance than was thought to be possible. This later proof of progress was given yesterday, when a mob of Havana's base ball "fans" secured ropes and went to a hotel for the purpose of lynching Umpire O'Brien of the American League, who had been officiating at games in the Cuban capital. Workhouse for Mashers. From the Boston ?Jlot>e. The mashers have been getting off easily because most women prefer to avoid a scene and because when a moon struck Johnnie has been haled into court in the past he usually got off with a re proof and a light fine. But now comes the workhouse sentence to sober and discipline, those who are too forward. It should teach the mashers a lesson. Got There. From llic St. lx>uis Times. It appears that one candidate stood at Armageddon; another stood pat, while the third got busy and did all the running. Sister Citizenesses. From the r?etn>lt New*. For opening political meetings in Mich igan hereafter: Sister citizenesses and fellow citizens. "Over." From the lH-trolt New*. Every one is pleased over election, espe cially over the over.
