TIME FOR CAKE.
It Is hoped that the Board of Public
'Improvements will make no mistakes In
Siring advice on the Charter Amend
ments to the Municipal Assembly. There
hardly seems cause to doubt that the In
sertion of a clause providing for a dif
ferent manner of assessing taxes for the
'Improvement of streets would be un
wise.
President TVhltelaw of the Public Wel
fare Commission has outlined the posi
tion of the men Interested in that move
ment In a way that shows the proper
Wplrlt -Speaking of the bill submitted
y the commission, he said: "It is not
the desire of the commission to push
this bill on the Municipal Assembly or
the Board 'of Public Improvements but
we think It la a. good thing for St Louis,
and as onr name Implies, we are for
- anything that will benent the city. We
are determined to do what we can to
pot St Ixtms In a desirable condition for
-the World's Fair."
t With this same spirit pervading every
Art connected with the proposed Charter
Amendments, there is no danger that the
people will fail to ratify the result of
the Municipal Assembly's decision.
1 HINDRANCES REMOVED.
By the passage of the park-site bill,
.ellowed by the Mayor's approval, the
k way has been cleared for a rapid con
summation of plans for the World's
- Fair.
. Henceforth, the management of the
Fair may be expected to have smooth

COMITY OF CITIES.
Chicago papers have paid cunslnut at
tention during the pnst few months to
the light that St. Louis and MIssoi.tI are
making against the drainage canal. Most
of the comment lately lias Iwon made In
connection with the World's Fair, the
Inference lelng drawn that because Illi
nois voted money for an exhibit St.
Louts should as a matter of courtesy
drop the suit against Chicago, the sani
tary district and Illinois.
In a recent issue of the Chicago Chron
icle appears an example of the argu
ments i liich the papers of that city are
using. The editorial states that the Chi
cago members of the Legislature stood
out against a reduction of the appropria
tion from 5250.000 to $150,000 hlmply to
show an evidence of good will and
friendship for St Louis.
Continuing, the editorial says:
While the bill for the St. Louis Fair appro
prlaUon xvos pending; In the legislature the
order of the Secretary of War came order
Ins; the current In the sanitary channel to
be reduced to 20O.OQO cublo feet a minute,
one-third less than formerly. Immediately the
St. Iouls authorities Jumped In to strengthen
their suit In the Federal Supreme Court
against Chicago, the sanitary district and the
State of Illinois to chut up the sanitary
canal, irhleh so far has cost Chicago $33.
000.000. and has really Improved the water
supply of St. Louis.
Fighting Chicago In Its most Important In
terests, while Us lobbies were at Spring
field asking Chicago members to give them
I330.0CO In aid of their Fair that waa the
situation of St. Louis toward Chicago It Is
an unpleasant spectacle to contemplate.
Why did not Chicago manifest its
friendship for St Louis many years ago
when tho construction of the monster
drainage canal was first proposed? That
would have been a good time to show
the real regard of Chicago for this city.
It was pointed out at that time that the
canal would be a menace to the health
of St Louis,
Now that the canal has been opened,
St Louis has taken the only recourse
possible. In claiming that the canal has
improved the water of this city, a woe
ful ignorance of facts Is shown, for, since
the sewage of the neighbor on the lakes
has passed this way, the typhoid rate
has increased to an alarming extent
Of course, St Louis has pressed its
case In court Is there any reason why
the health of this community should not
be protected? Tho courts will decide
whether the canal has been harmful.
Chicago Is certainly not so overbearing
as to suppose that St Louis will have its
death rate Increased simply because Chi
cago has made an investment In a drain
age canal.
The World's Fair should not have the
slightest connection with the drainage
canal suit St Louis has every friendly
desire to be agreeable to Chicago, but
the public health is something that can
not be neglected.
SALARIES OF TEACHERS.
With an increase of available funds
due to economical management of public
school affairs by a nonpolltlcal School
Board it Is to be hoped that the directors
will promptly put Into effect the proposi
tion already favored by them which con
templates the raising of the salaries of
teachers In the public schools.
There is no question as to the Justice
of this course. The standard of quali
fication necessary to be attained In se
curing appointment as a public school
teacher in St Louis Is at least as high
as that prevailing in any other city of
the Union. The service required of the
teachers is as arduous as Is demanded
In any other city. .The St Louis scale
of salaries paid to public school teachers
is lower than in other cities of Its class.
The entire argument in favor of an In
crease Is contained In these convincing
facta.
There was a time when the School
Board finances, thanks to mismanage
ment of public school Affairs, did not
permit the payment of proper salaries to
teachers, but that time is now past It
Will be to the city's discredit If the old
conditions continue to prevail when
their unhappy cause no lo'hgcr exists.
There is little reason to believe that the
present School Board favors their con
tinuance. The School Board's service to
the community has been a wise and
faithful service. It has redeemed the
public schools from political mismanage
ment from corrupt extravagance, from
the domination of contractors and ward
heeler school directors. The board may
safely be counted on, one would now
say, to Increase teachers' salaries to a
point In keeping with St Louis's rank
as an American municipality.
The situation Is simple. Teachers iu
the public schools of St Louis deserve
adequate payment for their services.
The School Board is now In condition to
pay proper salaries. The increase Justly
due should be forthcoming without de
lay. FUEL SUPPLY.
Mr. Charles M. Schwab, speaking be
fore the Industrial Commission, said
that if the present Increase in consump
tion continued the supply of Connellsville
coking coal, a necessity in the manu
facture of steel, would be exhausted In
thirty years.
Thirty years is not so far off that
problems which will arise then are un
available subjects for careful discus
sion. The 'St James Gazette, London,
has sounded a note of warning regarding
the coal supply of England. In proof of
its claims, some statistics, of the coal
mines of the world are produced.
In the" last fifty years the consumption
of coal has Increased as follows: In
Belgium, from 4,900,000 to 21,000,000
tons; in. France, from 4,141,167 to 32,
000,000 tons; in Germany, from. 3,500,
000 to 101,000,000 tons; In the United
States, from-, 4,400,000 to 226,000,000
tons; in Great Britain, from 3L500,000
to 220,000,000 tons, and in all other parts
of the world, from 1,700,000 to 50,000,
000 tons.
Significant figures Indeed. "England
positively mnst economize her coal snpt
ply," remarks the Gazette. "The best
steam engines are utilising one one
twelfth" of the, energy available by the
combustion of fneL while the ordinary
steam ngtaes utilise a fir lew'propor
tton." After fjunrestina-' that adeatlata
tBtoJhanatte,lpecco1ls;,
? -jt -: v -c .rr ' r r .?
"If the result of such an Inquiry were
merely to effect an economy of 1 per
cent in the consumption of coal, this
would mean an annual saving to the coal
consumers of this country of nearly one
and two-thirds million tons, worth at
last j ear's prices about $3,125,000."
There Is hardly cause for the same de
gree of alarm In the United States, or
there are fields of coal In this country
and continent that have not been
touched In 11 commercial sense. Coal
that is used in England would he thrown
away In the United States. Yet there Is
cause for economy. The limit will tie
reached some day, just a Mr. Schwab
prophesies that the Mipply of Uounells-
Me coal is limited.
Efforts hae been made to effect a
sang In the consumption of fuel. Im
prowd lire-boxes hae done goodi New
boilers hae helped to some extent.
There are a tcore of appliances that
make a ton of coal go farther to' day
than three tons a half century ago.
Hoeer. m long 11s more licat Is wast
ed than titllled, scientist) hje a woik
before them.
Substitutes for .oal are coming Into
vogue. The oil of Texas Is being used
as fuel. In the harnessing of Niagara
an example of the po&siliillUes In the
water power of the rivers has been
ghon. Out in California the rays of
the sun furnish motive power. And so
on through the list. Yet coal remains
the staple fuel.
THE CITY'S GAIN.
According to the estimates prcpaicd
by expert engineers of the Board of Pub
lic Improvements there Is ccry reason
for Mayor Wells to be encouraged by
the promise of benefit contained in his
movement for municipal ownership of
the lighting plants necessary to St.
Louis's public buildings and city institu
tions. The, figures submitted show the cost
of establishing the plants needed and of
their operation for five jears, the two
Items reaching a total of ?182,M1.S5.
The cost of municipal lighting by con
tract for five years is then submitted,
this amounting to 207,725.00. By this
nuthoritathe showing, therefore, it Is
demonstrated that in five jcars the mu
nicipal ownership of lighting plants
would save to the city the sum of $115,
CS4 05.
There seems to be no Insurmountable
obstacle in tho way of the establish
ment of municipal lighting plants, nnd
Mayor Wells Is going forward with the
work In a businesslike manner. He
will Institute this reform in the interest
of economy for tho municipality exactly
as he would profit by a similar oppor
tunity for a saving in the management
of a great business. Ho has made cer
tain that the change will result In finan
cial gain to the city. Uc has assured
himself that It is practicable and de
void of any embarrassing difficulties.' It
is safe to say that with the necessary
co-operation of the Municipal Assembly,
Mayor Wells will bring about municipal
ownership of the plants required for the
city lighting without needless loss of
time.
BLESSED IS UE.
In contrast with tho morbid talk so
common In these latter days concerning
the commercialism of the people of the
United Btates, the arrival of a carload
of orphans at Union Station this week
is a hopeful and welcome sidelight
Each one of the children, all under 4
years of age, will have a home in Mis
souri. And Missouri has room for them,
though the fact is not due to childless
homes, for the naUvo of this State has
followed the scriptural injunction to
multiply and increase, with a devoutness
that has made the commonwealth a raco
of young people.
These fifty-two children come from a
foundling asylum in New York. A year
ago homes were found for an equal num
ber of the babes In Missouri and tho
blessing pronounced upon him who is
kind to "the least of these" has fallen
upon the heads of the husbands and
wives who have opened their storehouse
of affection to the waifs left to the
tender mercies of the world.
It speaks well for the State that homes
have been found for so many children.
The action of the good men and women
who have taken up the work of raising
one or more of the forsaken children Is a
labor of love.
Community of Interests has won again.
Mr. Havemeyer will control the price of
sugar while Mr. Arbuckle will attend to
tho coffee end. Hereafter, a dash of
sugar In a demltasse will have to suf
fice. Now that all the spring lambs have
been sheared, the men In charge of the
"community of Interests" are waiting for
another lot to grow up. And how fast
they grow.
Excise Commissioner Selbcrt has laid
down a rule for himself as well as for
the saloonkeepers. By enforcing tho
rule, he will show that he has not spoken
in vain.
After studying the figures relative to
municipal lighting plants, one is forced
to inquire why the city has not been
operating Its own lights for these many
years.
There will probably be little said about
nepotism wheu Honore Palmer appoints
his mother street inspector. Any city
can stand that Bort of nepotism.
In organizing to rid the district be
tween Grand, Jefferson, Laclede and Lo
cust of objectionable places, property
owners should do a thorough job.
Doctor Kennedy seems to have a
knack at creating doubts. Meanwhile
the witnesses are drawing fees at the
expense of New York.
Evidently the baseball season has not
started In Pekln or the Germans would
hardly be going on another expedition
against the Boxers.
With three sick notables on hand, the
life of the 8an Francisco reporter who Is
on "dog-watch" cannot be said to be a
sinecure.
With the park-site bill now a law, the
World's Fair Company has a free field
and a full choice of location.
Albany seems to have passed the ar
bitration stage. Yet how much better

Or Is ho Hatlsfled If he- hate simply a beau

to scent the air and music to satisfy the
ear, thus combining the gratification of the
dominant senses? Does he want sports,
such as blccle riding, high Jumping .did
bull lighting?
At Uurra!o here the tliory lias been tint
the tlsitor Is HallMled with the picture of
building and landscape, with the scent of
lion era and the rjthm and melody of mu
sic and with sports and special exhibitions,
such as blcjcle races and klte-fljing. All
of these exhibition features hate been ue
t eloped at tho Pan-American Exposition to
the greatest possible degree. There Is a big
stadium for sports, band stands at various
parts of the grounds for the music of brass
nanus, a good-sized auditorium for orches
tral and organ music and an excellent
"JIIdwn." Tho authorities of tho Tan
American insist that their theory of whit
tho visitor wants is the correct one. They
hato detlsed a grand picture of buildings
nnd fountains and of land and water ef
fects, to draw the visitor, and they rely
on the music and the sports and tho special
exhibitions to hold him setcral half-dollars'
worth.
It Is doubtful whether theso features will
suffice to hold the visitor. Sports and mu
sic he has ulwnj.s with him. lie would not
go muny d-ij 's Journey nor pay many "fifty
ctfntses" to hear the Slxtj-llrst llvglmtnt

to sco an athlcto clear tho bar at S feet 7
Inches in a running high Jump or "do 10
seconds lint for tho hundred." Tho tlsitor
comes to sco what ho cannot see ut home.
Tho exposition unlternclle or world's fair
has undoubtedly been evolved from the
county agricultural and mechanical fair,
where big red apples and pumpkins and
heads of cabbage aro gathered together
from tho uttermost limit of tho county;
where flno stock, from suckling plg to
blooded Normun draught horses nnd flno
strains of farm ard fowl aro whovrn; tvhero
the. manufacturers of agricultural machin
ery and implements who supply that com
munity send the choicest culling of their
collection of thraalicrs, reapers, mowers,
binders, cultivators and plows; where, In
tho amphitheater, trotting horses and sad
dlers and roadsters aro put through tholr
paces Jor blue, yellow and red ribbons, nnd
ths pecuniary emolument that accompan
ies them; whero all through the livelong
day the "Sllter Cornet Hand" from tho
county seat discourses marches nnd waltzes
and mozourkns, and where popcorn and so
da water give tho sturdy farmer n dark
brown, furry taste In tiio mouth and a leu
son in tho rjitslotogy of digestion.
It may bo a far, far cry from tho county
fair to tho exposition unlvcrsello, but tt Is
no farther than that from monkoy to man,
of which philosophers of tho Darwinian
school speak. It Is a question oven whothor
a specific or generic difference can bo noted
between tho county fair and tho exposition
unlverselle. Tho former appeals moro tpe
clflcally to an agricultural community; the
latter appeals to tho cnttro human race. It
may be said that the horse show and tho
bench show, tho pet-stock show and tha
Paris salon of painters and sculptors arej
variations of tho,sama central Idea, do
vlsed to appeal to, a much more limited
constituency, thantliat to which tho county
fair appeals. The, exposition universale, ns

The proposition to co-operate with other
fraternal orders in the erection of a bulld

Pan-American Authorities Insist
That Strangers Have Neon
Tleased With Programme.
Installation of an exposition could be ac
complished in as short a time as It takes
In real life, and In addition the traveling;
crane would, if access could be given to It
for visitors, be a remarkably attractive ex
hibit In Itself.
If, as Professor Sever, who was one of
the Committee on Classification here, and
who Is now superintendent of tho electricity
division, suggests, tho electricity and ma
chinery buildings were combined Into one
building, making- Its classification or theme
"Power, and Its Development From Animal
Power Through Steam to Electricity' the
building would have to be of a size to make
steel construction necessary, and the side
walls, being of brick and of secure construc
tion, the tratelinjr crane could bo at hand
for all tho heavy Installation work, and
would git o the visitor an Idea of a mod-rn
power and machinery plant in operation.
The eiasslflcatton of Professor Sever seems
entirely logical. Machinery cannot be dis
sociated from Its motive-power. Steam as
a proximate motive power is becoming anti
quated. It Is used now principally to oper
ate devices for producing electricity and
electricity Is the proximate power used.
The classification "Electricity" wai used
at Buffalo, and a special building assigned
to It, from the fact that electricity was
"starred" as an element of the expoamon.
as may be Inferred from the Electrlo Tow
er, which forms tho crowning glory of tha
exposition. Btpam or the water power at
Niagara, which were the ultimata sourca
of the power which blazed forth In the
Electrlo Tower, were comprehended In the
scheme of the architects only by Inference.
Tho mind unaccustomed to the solution of
engineering problems finds the chum left
for Inference too wide to clear at a bound
without tho aid of it guidebook.
The men who produced the Pan-American
Exposition Insist that their theory of expo
sitions Is correct-that Is, that an expoil
tlon should bo a great spectacle, an archi
tectural unit; that visitor do not come to
see long lines of stoves and thrashing ma
chines or groat fragrant heaps of big red
apples.
If It I tni that the exposition developed
from the comity fslr. for which every pro
gressive, thinking community finds an an
nual need, ths lhory of those who md
the Pan.Amt-rlenn Exposition is wrong. The
exhlhlta are tha backbone, the framework,
what Architect Carrera calls "the ration
d'etre." of exponltlon- All the person)
who go to a hor show In New fork do
not go to the horse. They go to show
their clothes and to Meet their friends. Hut
behind and abova all thera must ba tha
horses and there must ba Judge) who ya
those horsm critically and talk learnedly
aliout the "liauta eeole." Just so all who
go to churoh ara not actuated by slneara
devotion, but the sincerity must ha there
at thn head. In the minister, or tha congre
gation presently dwindles. Bo, It seem.
with an exposition tne exnimts ara us nnsi
test. The visitor want to know that they
are there, if he only had time to look at,
them. The exhibitors also must fetl that
there Is some extrinslo value In tha gold or
silver or bronse medals awarded aa a re
sult of the "concours." It la so In Paris,
and Paris Is the great exemplar In tha sci
ence of expositions, and. In addition. It
does not yield to Buffalo In art and archi
tecture. Exhibitors point with pride to tha
trophies they have won In such an expo
sition. To sum up, tha visitor at an exposition
does not demand a picture painted with
buildings and grounds. Ha does not de
mand mualo and sports and speclal-exhtbtt
features. He Is delighted to have them, and
If thn picture la on a scale as graad aa that
at Buffalo he will travel mUea to sea It.
but he does not demand It. He demands
the. exhibits, tha backbone of the exposi
tion, and If he does not gat them h la dis
appointed. writer of theological works art aa a re
viewer.' In lata yean be bad written many
criticisms for various Cathollo papers oa
