The Appropriation Bills,
It is stated that pome preliminary work
has been done on the principal appropria
tion hills, and that several of them will
be introduced early in the regular ses
sion. If all could be, and consideration
of them promptly he-run. there might l>e
gain for the government l?oth in the mat
ter of amounts allowed and objects rec
ognized.
The rule, as we all know, is the other
way. Appropriation bills are held back,
and used as clubs for forcing other meas
ures through. Uncle Yarn's supplies are
not always, if ever, voted strictly on
? their merits. Other considerations enter
into the decisions.
What is called the "log jam" is an old
story In Congress. A few of the supply
measures are passed and sent to confer
ence. while others are either slow in the
reporting, or e*se. being reported, are
permitted to remain on the calendar sub
ject to order.
Presently the situation becomes a topic
of alarm. Fear is expressed that some of
the bills may fall. Time presses. A "jam '
is discovered- How will it be possible to
break it? If some of the bills must fail,
which?
Of course the old hands in Congress
are never deceived. They have seen
"jams" before?maybe have helped pre
pare them. And knowing how they are
constructed, know how they may be
broken.
But raw hands?and there are a number
in every Congress?are greatly impressed.
They think real danger exists; and. un
der that feeling, they can be influenced
for measures toward which otherwise!
they might not be inclined. They hear j
from many influential sources that Uncle
Sam should not be denied nis full rations
At the last moment?and apparently
with a mighty heave-ho?everybody now:
?the "jam" is broken, and the supply
bills go through. But the raw hands
think it was a very close shave, and feel
justified in all they <Ld to help ciear the
way.
As all such measures must originate in
the House the responsibility is there, and
it the House managers so decreed tne
custom might be changed. It would be
possible to "feed" all these bills to the
Senate early in the session, and have
them laws on the books by March. They
have the right of way under the rules,
and at the short session are disposed oi
in the three months allowed.
Senators ano representatives may not
be in the best fettle tor the work await
ing them. The special session has tired
out some, and gotten on tne nerves of t
others- Still, the vo.ume of that work is j
considerable, and the order In which it !
Is tackled and disposed of will count for J
much for or against Congress and the
country.
Train Wireless.
Reports of a hignly successful test of,
Wireless train telegraphy conducted on,
the Lackawanna railroad between
Hoboken and Buffalo give rise to tho
hope that a large percentage of the
danger of modern high-speed railroad
ing may be eliminated In the course'
of the run on which the test was made ?
two practical occasions arose to use)
the wireless. The conductor of the
train decided that an additional coach j
was needed and so notified the yard
master at Scranton, in season to have
the coach in readiness when tho train
pulled into that station. A few min
utes later the conductor became ill,
and It was determined that he should
be relieved at Scranton. Word to this
effect was sent ahead by wireless, so
that the relief conductor was ready |
to taJce charge of the train there. In I
these two instances considerable time
was saved by the use of wireless com
munication while the train was in mo
tion. It is conceivable that instances
may arise when it is oi fo.r more vital
importance to communicate between j
station and train ip the course of a
run. If through a dispatcher s or op
erator's error a train is sent forward
into an area of danger it can be over
taken In season to prevent a wreck.
With the wireless system operating re
liably all trains are under the immedi
ate and uninterrupted control of dis
patchers. Their progress can be noted
accurately, and from central points cor
rect view can be had of the operating
conditions throughout the system. The
possibilities of the wireless as ap
plied to train control and manage- \
ment are infinite, and it would seem;
assured tnat with wireless installed as j
h. univer?a.i mode ?r train direction
?here will be no occasion whatsoever
??r collisions, it is true thai the ex
periments are thus far only tentative
a.nd extended tests may develop weak
nesses. yet the initial success suffices
to encourage the belief that a great
stride forward has been taken by this
application of radiography to railroad
ing.
It will make a difference if militant
suffrage literature finds Mr. Anthony
Comstock as good an advertisement as
he was for "September Morn."
Rooievelt's South American Talks.
Mr. Roosevelt's discourses in South
America are interesting here at home
for the line they afford on his plans
for next year and 1916. His purpose
IB to make over our institutions in his
own Image and for his own benefit.
The fathers are back numbers. Their
descendants are on deck, and of the
army, with progress in mind, he is the
ehief. He is bent on giving us govern- I
ment of Roosevelt, by Roosevelt, and
for the Rooseveltians. Such is pro
gresslvlsm as he conceives and ex
pounds it.
The lawmaking body is deficient, and
he has in mind changing it. In what
way and to what extent, however, is as
yet his secret. lie probably does not
favor abolishing the Senate, but would
have it more biddable to the executive
In the matter of confirming nominations
to office and ratifying treaties He be
lleves In a strong: man In the White
House?while he himself is there.
But It is upon the judiciary he turns
his sourest visage. In his opinion that
department of the government has
gotten out of bounds, and must be
taken down a peg or two. It makes
more law of an important character
than Congress itself. In fact, it has
been tyrannizing over the country by
its decisions, and depriving the people
of remedies decreed for them by the
lawmakers proper. All this must go.
The people numt have what they want,
and are better judges of how they
should receive it than the courts.
When the courts point one way and the j
people another, the courts, by the re- i
call, must be rebuked.
This is Roosevcltian in its very es
sence -liie alcohol of Rooseveltism.
The man has no knowledge of law, but,
like every intense agitator, is of a
lawless turn and spirit. In goini? after
what he wants he would overthrow
everything standing- between. In try
ing to remedy one evil he might pro
duce twenty others, each more hurt
ful than the object of his assault.
As a matter of fact. Mr. Roosevelt
has smaller qualification for dealing
with this subject than any other that
attracts him. A blacksmith could as
successfully tinker a watch, or a
watchmaker wield the big sledge in
the shaping of iron, as Mr. Ropsevelt
could revise whatever needs revision
in our judicial procedure. His observa
tions. where they do not amuse, alarm I
all men of whatever party who are in-j
formed by study and practice about j
the courts and their province and i
work.
When David Garrick. the incom- [
parable actor, entered the list* on one j
occasion In a political controversy th>- j
great "Junius" said to him. "Stick to ;
your pantomimes." Mr. Roosevelt is a
great agitator and a consummate poli
tician, but being no lawyer would
make a sad mess of rebnilding our ju- i
dicial system.
I
The Fight Against Tuberculosis.
A meeting of unusual importance to j
the welfare of this community is to be
held tonight at the Public library
when the Association for the Preven
tion of Tuberculosis assembles for its
fifth annual session. A program of ad
dresses has been arranged covering a
wide scope and introducing official as
well as unofficial speakers competent
to deal with the subject of disease pre
vention from all aspects. The sig
niucant title. "A Health Program for
Washington," has been adopted to
cover the scope of this meeting, and
out of it should come suggestions of
vaiue for the welfare of the people of
the whole District.
No more valuable work has been
undertaken In recent years by citizens
than that embraced in the activities of
the anti-tuberculosis association. It
has conducted an educational campaign
w hich has carried the truth regarding
the communicability of this disease to
thousands who were previously igno
rant on the subject and wrere beset
with the idea that tuberculosis was j
something unpreventable and' inevita- j
ble. It has encouraged the adoption ;
of measures to lessen the risk of com- j
munication from the ill to the well, !
has stimulated practical sanitation in '
the public schools, has materially for- j
warded the work of eliminating dis- J
ease-breeding slums and in oUier ways i
has carried forward a propaganda
against a disease that in former years
constituted a veritable plague, but that
has now been classed as subject to
check and even total eradication.
Such a work as this deserves and re
quires the fullest measure of public
sympathy and support. This is not a
class movement, but it affects all the
dwellers in this District, whatever the
social standing and the personal
means. The danger of tuberculosis is
not confined to sections or neighbor
hoods. Those who are fortunate?y sit
uated run the same risk as that to
which less happily conditioned people
are subjected. In a work of this kind
it is essential that every citizen en
list as a potential factor of education
and prevention, and it is to be hoped
that from this meetng tonight will
flow results that will bring Washing
ton measurably nearer to the ideal o.
treedom from this scourge as far as
immediately local conditions aro con- !
cerned.
The personal appearance of Mrs. Pank
hurst has been commented on with so
much enthusiasm that she might be per
suaded to deliver a few lecture on
topics pertaining to fasnion.
One reason boys like to play foot ball
is that their fathers, even though not j
committing themselves to approval of the j
sport, are always proud when their team j
I
wins.
Occasionally there arc slight symptoms
of a desire on Huerta's part to shift
responsibility to interests higher up. i
The extra session will be prevented only !
by circumstances over which it liad no j
control from lasting even longer.
The recent conser\ atlon congress may
cause two societies to grow where
formerly there was but one.

White House wedding presents from

Garbage Collection.
It will be distinctly worth while for
Congress to consider the advisability of
authorizing a municipal garbage disposal
system as- suggested by the Commission
ers tentatively on the basis of recom
mendations by the engineer department
and the c can city committee. The possi
bilities of municipal garbage collection j
and disposal have been discussed from
time to time duriug recent years, but
without leading to any results. That
garbage collection and disposal can be
conducted inexpensively, if not at a profit
to the municipality, Is believed by those
who have examined the question, and if
this is true it follows naturally that It
will be to the interest of the citizens to'
have the District take over the work. The
prime requirement of the citizen in j
this matter Is thoroughness and re
liability In collection and sanitary ef- j
fectiveness. He is not concerned as to
cost or profits, but the municipal au- j
thorities naturally look to this phase of
the matter with concern. Their appro
priations are limited and they are ex
pected by the community to render a
maximum of service for the amount of
money available, whether through con
tract or municipal enterprise. If they
can give such a service best by doing the
work themselves, that should be the
course. If, doing the work themselves,
they can reduce the cost or make a
profit through disposal of the garbage
product, the reason for municipal col
lection is strengthened. But municipal
collection and disposal should not be
undertaken solely with a view to the pos
sible profit, the primary object always
being to conduct the most efficient,
thorough, trustworthy and consequently
sanitary garbage collection system, wheth
er by contract or municipal agency.
This garbage question has been repeated -
117 discussed In Washington, and since
>
It was last seriously proposed to change
to the municipal collection basis con
siderable changes have occurred in
methods of treatment and disposal, and
thus the subject has a new aspect. A
full and exhaustive Inquiry Into this
matter by the ' Commissioners through
subordinates should yield interesting re
sults and may perhaps lead to a change
that will be advantageous to the District,
not merely In point of efficiency of tAe
service, "but in respect to the net cost
to the taxpayer.
A social investigator announces that
there are no bad boys In Pittsburgh. This
may be accounted for on the theory that
a Pittsburgh bad boy likes to go to New
York and spend his money on the great
white way.
Prev'ous experiences in getting speci
mens cared for have not encouraged Col.
Roosevelt to make the express rifle a
conspicuous feature of his present tour.

curities, but the prices of New York

SHOOTING STARS.
BY PHILANDER JOHNSON.
A Discordant Nature.
"Are >ou going to eat Thanksgiving
dinner at home?"
"Xo," replied Mr. Groweher. "I'm go
ing down town and eat the kind of a
dinner I can be thankful for."
Revised Opinions.
Don't be alarmed if men appear
To shi/t the talk that sounded wise.
The styles in speeches change each year
The same as styles in hats and ties.
Study in Seriousness.
"That ponderous person takes himself
very seriously."'
"No," replied Miss Cayenne. "He
doesn't take himself seriously. He is
merely trying to persuade others to do
so."
Economy in Fuel.
"The baby has been playing in the
coal bin!"
"Have the nurse wash him thoroughly,
and see that she saves ail the coal dust."
A Minor Incident.
"The men of this country don't appear
to object to giving their wives the vote,"
said the visitor from abroad.
"Well," replied the plain citizen, '"after
you have put in your life trying to give
a woman the kind of a house she wants
and good clothes and furniture and any
thing else her happiness crav. a, it doesn t
seem sensible to try to hold out on a
little thing like the vote."
The Obscure. t
The men whose efforts win renown
Our gratitude inspire.
We hand their names in splendor down
For others to admire.
Yet names we love full well repose
In sweet and simple rest;
The names unheralded of those
Who toiled aitd did their best.
The leader oft Is like the foam
Which lightly floats and free.
Beneath him mighty waters roam
The great resistless sea.
Though Fortune's turn may ne'er disclose
Their chance to reach the crest.
The nu-n who move events are those
\\ ho toil and do their best.
Reforming the Climate.
From tlie Boston Transori;>t.
"Is our climate changing " is a query
frequently put in a form that seems to
carry the force of assertion that it is.
A question of much more radical and
even startling interest is: "Can we
change our climate?" Hitherto the ad
justment of our planetary foroes has been
accepted h.-i beyond human power to alter.
"The wind bloweth where.it listeth," and
the storms gather and break in obedience
to laws that we have not made and can
not repeal. At least that has been the
general belief. But it is now challenged
by Carroll L. Biker, a Brooklyn engineer
of standing who i,, a communication to
the SpringritJd Republican advances and
discusses some very interesting theories.
It is not the first time that Mr. Riker
has been h enrd from upon this subject.
We have had occasion before to call at
tention to a scheme which he has pro
posed, but in his b-tter he enters some
what more into detail than hitherto. He
sajs: "The means for increasing and con
trol ing ihe waters of the gulf stream,
for investigating their ascending currents
into the heavens, and their future move
ments. is the subject of a bill now before
Congress which is the recijiient of phe
nomenal support for such "a radical under
taking."
Cheaper Cabs.
From the New York Times.
As all the taxicab companies except one
have now accepted the new ordinance
and begun tA do business on the new
schedule, it is very likely that the one
still dissatisfied company will soon find
a way to accept the inevitable and take
its share of the greatly increased traffic.
New \ork at last has a cab system on a
reasonable basis. One or two persons
may ride in a taxicab one mile for 50
cents and two miltys for i>0 cents. Lower
fares cannot be expected in Manhattan,
and probably will not be demanded in fhe
other boroughs. There used to be an
ordinance limiting cab fares to SO cents
a mile, but it has been a dead letter
within recent memory, it is the business
of every citizen who uses cabs, just as
much as it is the business of the officers
of the municipa ity, to see that the pres
ent law does not become a dead letter
Don't Hoard Your Millions.
From the Toledo Blade.
It always cheers us on our way to start
the day with some great man's advice or
bit of philosophy which has to do with
the little things of life. This morning
Andy Carnegie's Injunction. "Don't hoard
your millions," is ringing in our ears
Season Not Over.
From the Philadelphia Ledger.
The foot ball season was a great suc
cess. Only 14 were killed and 175 injured
more or less seriously.
First Class as Politicians.
From the Charleston News and Courier.
They are called fourth-class postmasters
but some of them are first-class noli*
ticians.
There Are Others.
From the Detroit Free Press.
London claims that it has the worst
telephone service in the world. How
