Piohibition Legislation
We suppose that some sort of a hill to give
fulther effect lo the prohibition amendment will
be passed by the legislature. A majority of the
members of each house at one time or another
have taken occasion publicly to Jcclare their views
on the subject of such legislation and they have
fcaid that they believe the amendment binds them
to far uk a legislature can be bound by a consti
tution to do a certain thing, to enact a law, home
law, providing additional machinery to make the
piohibition amendment more effective.
There are some members but they are in a
small minority who do not conceal their opposi
tion to prohibition, who are against the enactment
of any .statute. There are others who believe that
the amendment is self-executing and sufficient.
But thai is plainly not the case. The men who
rfepared the amendment were aware that it was
liot. They could not, or did not desire to encumber
the constitution with a mass of words which
would be purely the words of a statute. Therefore,
they directed, and the people after them, so far
as they could direct the legislature, that supple
mentary legislation should be enacted.
The objection to the Powers bill, which we may
kdmit was open to some objection was not always,
we suspect, sincere. It was certainly not in con
flict with the constitutional amendment. That
was something that did not trouble the avowed
friends of the amendment. Only those suspected
of being, or known lo be unfriendly to the
amendment were solicitous that it should not be
violated. The points of alleged conflict occurred
only in what may be regarded as a declaration of
the meaning of it.
It is, however, plainly no use now to urge the
passage of the Drachman bill, the duplicate of the
Powers bill or one of substantially the same char
acter. But we believe it to be a duty the legisla
ture owes to the people and not to the con
stitution lo enact some law that will give force and
fcffcct to the amendment, not only in localities
where public sentiment is strongly behind it but
in those counties where the majority of public sen
timent was against it. The enforcement of the
law must, therefore, rest with the stale as the
Povvers-Drachman hill . proposed, for otherwise, the
enforcement would be very spotted and we would
find that the amendment has given us only local
Old ion in spite of the expressed will of the people.
Ours and Other Children
Our self-complacency must be somewhat jarred,
our sense of racial superiority, rudely disturbed hy
a report from the school authorities of Honolulu
where it is shown that Japanese pupils rank first
and Koreans second. American boys and girls
stand sixth. The Intervening spates are occupied
by youth of other races which we are accustomed
to call "inferior."
This may suggest to us that we have fallen
into an error common to the people of nearly all
nations that of self-sufficiency. We are all prone
to regard ourselves as superior in every way to
people of different blond.
At the outbreak of toe Spanish-American war,
there was no doubt among the ra ik and file of
the Spanish population that the Americans would be
quickly routed. We suppose that a majority of the
citizens of Mexico believe us to he a weak and
ignorant nation whose existence is dependent upon
the forbearance of their government.
But returning to the subject of schools, educa
tion is more widely diffused in this country than
in many others. That is. there is a smaller pro
portion of Illiteracy than in many other countries
but not in all other countries. That is a fact, how
ever, which we believe to he due to our p.iblic
bcliool system and the vast sums which we be
btow upon it, rather than to the superiority of our
methods of teaching or the native mental super
iority of our children. The great mass of theni
have opportunity which is denied to the masses
of most other countries.
We have no defined or recognized classes hers
corresponding to the classes of European an7 civil
ized Asiatic countries, where many are born and
doomeil lo ignorance. Yet. wealth or other circum
stance gives to some American children an op
portunity which is denied others and gives to some
an opportunity superior to the opportunity that
others have, so that after all we have classes.
Comparison to determine the relative mentality
of American children ard those of foreign coun
tries or those of alien races, should, therefore be
between those of ordinary circumstances here and
those of the well-defined middle class, or lower
middle class abroad. The result is not in our
1vor. The foreigners show not only further ad
..iii'oment but also greater thoroughness We
have even been surprised at the showing made by
children of the peasant class who have been
brought to this country. The children of the Kast
Side in New York, fresh from Italy, Russia and
Poland amaze their teachers by the avidity with
which they pursue their studies and the progress
they make.
Von Hindenburg
Once again has Field .Marshal von Hindenburg
justified the confidence placed in him by the Ger
man people and proved the quality of his military
genius in the present series of Russian1 defeats.
Evidently while he lives, Hie, Russian advance to
Berlin will he effectively blocked. His repeated
icturies are the one outstanding feature of the
war, so far. No wonder he is the idol of his fellow
countrymen.
Tne fact that he. is a soldier of the "old
school," who won the Iron Cross in the war of
1X70, is not without significance. There is much in
teresting gossip abou the life of this distinguished
general, some of which intimates that he refused to
consider bis career ended when younger men were
anxious to displace him. He is also credited with
being the only German general who ever had the
courage to rebuke the kaiser for the manner in
which that august personage handled troops at
maneuvers. 'lis retirement followed shortly after
that incident, but he was eager to serve his coun
try when her hour of need came, and events have
I loved th&t even Ihe kaiser aas mi reason to feel
humiliated because von Hindenburg assumed to
teach him bow to play the game of war.
The prosperity regarding which the president
speaks so eloquently on the platfcrm has not affect
ed the New York postoffice. Seventy-nine carriers
have just been reduced to the status of substitutes
in the interest of economy. Wicked corporations
have some scruples about laying off employes when
limes are hard, but the gnvet nment is a law unto
itself in such matters.
The complaint that war is no longer picturesque
need not cause uneasiness. It is more bloody than
ever before, and that is the main thing, as the
principles of ' ruthlessness-" plainly tea.-h.
AN "UNPROFITABLE" PULLMAN CONTRACT
The Pullman company, according to a Chicago
news dispatch, has just accepted an order from the
Northern Pacific railroad for $l,r,oo,ooo worth of
equipment "virtually on a cost basis." it prefers
to keep its works running anil its men employed, it
prefers to add to the wealth ami means of the coun
try by lurning out completed and usable products
of Industry to shutting ius doors, slopping its ma
chinery, sending its people hack to the dreary homes
of idleness and want, and adding to the general
stagnation and pinch.
An official of the cum pany thus explains the
unusual stroke of business:
"Maybe it wasn't good busiiM-ss ami maybe it
was. We feel that ill times like tiese it is up to the
big concerns to set a good example by looking on
the humanitarian side."
The motive is most praiseworthy, and probably
the altruistic aspect of Hie Pullman policy is that
which will attract most attention and comment.
But from a practical pi.int of view almost higher
praise can properly be bestowed upon Ihe com
pany's resolve as an act of enlightened selfishness.
It is the sort of far-sighted stroke of business
shrewdness that wi.uld profit the country immeas
urably if it were multiplied on all sides in these
' i .! times.
The Pullman managers in the acceptance of a
contract for the Rood of their liaOn employes an.) to
the advantage m the Northern Pacific railroad, re
gardless of gain to their own concern, have dis
played an admirable appreciation of the community
of interest that binds not only the business world,
but all modurn society in a close organization,
wherein the good of one is the good of all and one
element cannot suffer without all feeling the strain.
By lining the pockets of its men the company gives
prosperity to the retailer with whom they trade.
The help reaches the wholesalers find jobbers be
hind the retailers, extends through them to the man
ufacturing interests, thence to the railroads, anil so
back again in the long run to the. Pullman works,
and this time with profit. New York Sun.
WHY WOMEN TELL LIES
One of the reasons, surely, -why women have
been credited with less perfect veracity than men is
that the burden of conventional falsehood falls
chiefly on them. A man expects Itia wife to do this
kind of thing for him. It is sne who accepts or re
fuses their common Invitations, directs., their Joint
social maneuvers, encounters the world" for them
both on the purely social side. He is not expected
to do it any more than he is expt.ct.-d to order the
dinner. There is more straight-from-the-shoulder
talk, I imagine, among men by themselves than
among women by themselves; but that is partly be
cause women slip out of the social, harness .less fre
quently and less easily. A man among men is per
haps I tpeak under correction) More inveterately
his personal self; a woman among- women more In
veterately her social self. It may Im? that it is easier
to wear the harness constantly than to gall one'i
shoulders afresh each day with putting it on. I
am inclined to think that women are as honest
with their intimate friends as are men; but they
have had an age-long training in the penalties of
making one's self unpleasant, SV mjnny low motives
are imputed to women and most f them, at the
present day. ,mite unjustly that they are driven to
the lesser mendacities, for the sake of getting some
justice done them.--Katharine F. Uerould, in the Atlantic.
KEEPING HER AT HOME
Wife Don't you think you might' manage to
keep house alone for a week while I go on a visit?
Husband I guess so yes, of course.
"But won't you be lonely and miserable'"
"Not a bit."
"Huh!" Then I won't go." New York Weekly.
BEFOGGED-
A London merchant received a telephone mes
sage one morning from one of his clerks. "I am
sorry, Mr. Wilson," said the clrrk, over the wire,
"I cannot come down to the shop this morning on
account of the fog; but the fact is that I have not
yet arrived home yesterday." Exchar.ge. 1
