The part coaMeace plays la prosperity Is necessa
rily large There can be no business without belief.
Howbeit. the growing experience and developing
knowledge of financial conditions most constantly re
duce the hazard incident to the dependence of busi
ness upon a state of public mind. "Confidence" is
better educated.
We hare llred through panics and learned that
they were naaecessary, and resolved not to be so
foolish again. We have by experience and observa
tion learned what constituted the fundamentals of
good times. We know that while a nation Is at
work, with a market for Its goods and a strong cred
it amply bolstered by actual money to facilitate its
transactions there Is no danger of serious financial
disorders; and bare learned to discount scare talk by
a reference to the physical facta and conditions.
Yet It Is true that no amount of basic prosperity
can avail as against superficial disturbances caused
by mere Irresponsible thought and utterance. If
enough people get to thinking calamity they can
make one to order out of the most prosperous condi
tions possible to conceive. Panic, indeed, in a small
way. could be created even were gold coin substi
tuted everywhere for credit, and merchant and bank
er given enough of It to pay all their obligations.
The business of the United States is on a vast
cash basis at the preseat time, relatively speaking.
Money Is locally plentiful in every part of the coun
try. The people, as a class, are at work at better
than living wages. Collections are easy. As a finan
cial report of the past half year demonstrates, there
are only 73 cents of bad debts to every thousand dol
ls rs of solvency In the country. The United States
are now practically a creditor nation. They are the
recipients of whatever advantage the exchange sys
tem of the world receives from the Increased gold
production of the times. In addition the United
Statea are gold producers at the rate of a hundred
millions annually. Increased gold production bears
the same relation to the universal credit system as
the large amount cf locally distributed cash does
to aaercaatile exchange. "The money Is in sight." as
It were, between the nations and between the Indi
viduals. There Is so much of It in sight as between the
latter that commercial paper hardly draws any more
interest than Government bonds bear-there Is but a
point of difference. Consider what that means as
bearing upon prosperity locally; that money is
plentifully cheap and business abundantly sec tire.
Business Is expanding, but conservatively: while
speculation Is going easily. The people have learned
some lessons from Wall street, one of them being
that the Stock Exchange does not uceesKirily reflect
the country's conditions: and speculation is not vast
or riotous. Consequently there Is no danger of reac
tion ell her in the business sphere which we dom
inate as legitimate or lu the speculative market. Con
fidence in all lines goes band In band with a high
ly Intelligent and sophisticated -conservatism.
Itanks and concerns fall, of course. Itut badly or
dishonestly managed concerns will fail at any time,
pnepcrity to the contrary notwithstanding. No
amount of general prosperity can Insure against tho
self-wrecking of institutions. Failures, however,
are fewer this year than they were last, nnd
aggregate fewer dollars lost. Then are a con
siderable niimU-r more of honest banks doing
a m:-- esf ul business in the country this year than
last vear. Reflect ut.oti that statistical truth. Re
member that for the two or three or half-dozen fail
urw through sheer carelessness or ltad management
w hlcli have occurred in recent weeks dozens of new
concerns have entered the field to till the wants of
the business community. The "banking system"
does not feel these individual, unrelated failures.
Upon the whole, under such circumstances, none
but a fisl could feel a waning "confidence." lie is
the same kind of fool who would l drowned by a
breath of .pray.
I'ertlnent to the matter of effecting better trade
relations among American countries are -several im
portant views in the report of the Texas Legisla
ture's peda! committee on the contemplated Pan
American Trades College. The advantageous posi
tion of Texas on the Gulf of Mexico nnd at the side
of the Republic of Mexico is a natural reason for this
State taking the initiative in an endeavor to cultivate
the friendliest disposition between the United States
and the Ittin-Am-.Tican Republics of the South.
The Central-Southern and Southwestern States
ought to carry on a large import and export trade
with all the Southern-American countries. Texas oc
cupies a decidedly favorable status in this respect.
But Louisiana. Florida. New Mexico nnd Arizona also
have strategical preferments of a geographical as
pect. Whatever might be done to promote political
and commercial amity between the 1'nited States
and their I.atin neighbors would necessarily result in
general good. While the plan to establish a commer
cial exposition and college at a Gulf port in Texas
would help this Commonwealth. It would at the
same time and in the same way help the other coast
and boundary States and disseminate leneflt
throughout the whole country
Determined efftrte must be made to get the
Southern-American trade from England. Germany
and France. A The Republic has shown. In one of
its surveys of Southern and Southwestern prospects
of development the foreign trade of the Latin-American
countries now amounts yearly to more than
S3.000.000.000. The United Statea take only one
third of the exports and furnish lesa than one-third
ef the Imports. The business of the United State
with these couBtrlea la. therefore, but $600,000,000 of
the total of f2.000.000.00u.
How may a change be brought about? la the
swjeation. "The great harrier." explains the report of
the Texas Legielatare'a special committee, "is a lack
ef knowledge by the reheats aad manufactarers
ef the United States ss to the wants, needs, eastosss.

A nw method of treating cancer demonstrated pub
licly for the first time In Slay of this year in Flower
Hospital. New York Is foumled upon the discovery of
lKctor Hugo J.'elKT. an eminent Ncnr York chemist, of
a solvent for radium. Free radium gives oft three va
rieties. of Hunt rays and both gaseous and material ema
nations: but the heretofore most advanced method of
applrlng- radium, in aluminum capsules, permits th
giving off of only a part of tin rays and none at all
of Its emanations hence radium wui exerting only a
fraction of Its full efficiency. According to Uebcr's
method celluloid pencils, and cllulolJ plates of the
thinnexs or paper, are dipped into th radium solution,
which Is allowed to recrystallize upon them. So pre
pared, radium glvei off Its properties.
The method of applying this cure ran te illustrated
by the beginning of an operation witnessed by tlm
writer the patient, a man of C. with a solid cancer ax
larse as an orange, on his chin. After locally anaes
thetizing the cancer, two Incisions, each Just large
enough to admit a pencil, were made and radium-coated
pencils tl.rut Into the cancerous mass. That Is prac
tically nil there Is to the treatment. The radium los
the rrt. ar.d does It with miraculous rapidity, as wlt
ne.s this case of a woman of W with a largo cancer on
her Instep. Pencil were Introduced into the cancer
unj allowe.1 to remain forty-eight hour, then with
drawn. n:nj at the end of two days inserted for a
recond forty-eight hours. At the end of tho second
penod the miracle occurred the cancerous mass came
off, leaving a healthy skin beneath.

Khali the public service regulate Its pay by this out
sld standard? Is there ny reason to expect that If the
people paU their servants la lbs Government as much
as men of equivalent abilities ar able to obtain In
private llfo the public business would be better con
ducted or a better Quality of officeholders would be ob
tained? Could Mr. Itoosevelt get an cbler Cabinet if the
salirle of the members were mads "quits ten times"
the IS.000 a year now paid them?
The probability Is that he would do wor.e. The
sort of men who would be attracted to such public serv
ice by the money reward would be of very questionable
stripe. Our whole policy and practice' In this public from
Its foundation have been to make-the pecuniary rewards
of public o!5ce relatively modest. Bo far from attempting
to compete with outside opportunities for money-roaklng.
the Government has disdained the suggestion that sny
such sordid standard was applicable to the public service.
It has r.ever tried to buy men to enter Into the high
post of It service.
Doe. this require- of them self-sacrifice? Is there
sacrifice In accepting the honor and responsibility of pub
lic office? Is there pot some other standard than mere
pay in money which a man fit for high 'public place sets
before htm? How about th presidents and profeors
of colleges and universities, th thousand of educated
men and women teaching In the schools, the ministry
of religion, th servants of art?
