Wllmcr Latimer, of the Juvenile Court, picture!! a serious defect in the District's correctional provisions last evening before a civic body when he pointed to the lack of any facilities by which his court may investigate non-support cases. His pica for investigators for this work illustrates the difference be tween the functions of juvenile and other courts. The work of a juve nile court transcends the mere tak ing of testimony, and especially in cases involving domestic relations court testimony is largely valueless to shed any light on affairs of the disrupted home. Not only have the methods now in vogue of trying non-support cases resulted in men being sen tenced without just cause to the work house at Occoquan a fact candidly admitted by the court but it has handicapped the sort of co operation which might have restored the home to its normal conditions and freed tho District from any charge for penal sentences. It is sui prising that cities are so low to realize and provide for tho needs of agencies like the juvenile court, which deal with home life. The seeming disintegration of home life in cities is alluded to as a cause of many evils, and the home figures largely in orations as the corner stone of our democracy. But when It comes to providing for those agencies which deal primarily with this institution cities arc singularly lax. There arc a number of needs in Washington's Juvenile Court, and not tho least of them is the provision of trained investigators to deal witn tho large number of non-support CMC. CONVENTION VOTINd POWER The campaign of the Republicans gathered in Chicago from various "'Htes to obtain equalized delegate "ntation in national conven- ' Vir party is going to have jrtant bearing upon the rage movement. not been much talked i it must have occurred to many Republican loaders 1 gt that States which give the ballot to women have, unit for unit of nonu- lation, double the voting power of States that do not. Roughly speaking, a population of one hundred thousand in a State where only men have the franchise yields home fifteen thousand votes. But the same population in a State where women as well as men have the franchise yields some thirty thousand votes. States that cast at the polls two votes for roiy otc cast by other States are not going to rest content with a situation where their two votes count in a national convention only as much as one vote from those other States. This very issue, in the matter of Republican delegations from the solid South with no otcrs behind them, was really the thing which split the Republican paity in 1912; and the Western States which have given the ballot to women are going to light for convention representa tion of their olcri a great deal harder than anjbody ccr fought over the old question of the "black belt" delegates. No party in its senses wants to be at strife with the Statct. which are producing its votes for it, and sooner or later the right of .ill voters to be equally represented in their conven tions will be conceded by the gen eral party. This, thing, thcrefoic, will be sure to drive States factor and faster into the woman's suffrage column. When equal representation is the rule the State which still refuses to give the ballot to women will simply disfran chise itself 50 per cent. That choice omc day is going to send all the States that arc still left out rushing for the equal franchise gate like a (lock of sheep. NATIONAL (WARD DELINQUENTS If any group of men should be expected to show a proper lespert for their obligations as members of the Distiict National Guard, that group computes (he employes of the Government who are cnlibtcd in the militia. Last evening at a ti ml by a sum mary court the ofliccr presiding ie niaiked that employes of the Wash ington Navy Y.nd had formed the idea that their connection with the aid permitted a laxity in their duties to the glial d. lie threatened that if ihis nttitude, alleged to have been shown bv one man who tore up a subpoena served on him for non attendance at drills, continued, n report of the cases would be foi warded to offin.ils at the yaid. The National Guard makes fre- men for summer encampments. Un-.up, dcr law all Government employes . enlisted in the guard must be so ex cused. This shows the intent of the Government that its employes shall have a due respect for their tions to the militia. The executive officers of the vari ous departments should be active in enforcing this spirit of respect for the guard among their men. They should see to it that the Govern ment's employes set an example of serious regard for their drill duties that will impress the private em ploye who enters National Guard service. The Government employe should be the last man to treat lightly his duties in the service. Es pecially at this time, when the mat ter of preparedness is a national issue, should all members of the National Guard show that interest and serious purpose which will en courage men to regard the discipline of the organization most highly. "AFTER THE WHIRLWIND" Charles Edward Russell, Socialist candidate for governor of New York sundry times, writer, lecturer, and thinker, made a speech in Philadel phia Sunday that has set the Social ists by the cars. Mr. Russell, a year and a half ago, was a pretty ortho dox Socialist. He didn't believe in war, and believed that preparation for war made strife inevitable. He was opposed to military prepared ness, and among his animated writ ings arc to be found various muck rakings of the "War Munitions trust." That wicked monopoly was long a favorite target for the objur gations of good and true Socialists. But Mr. Russell has been to Eu rope, and seen. He has learned. He knows that war is here; theories about what brought it are unimport ant in the presence of that fact. He came back to America, convinced that national safety demanded not only preparedness, hut the most rig orous and effective preparedness. He wants the art military taught to ev erybody capable of bearing arms. He would make a nation of soldiers of us, convinced as he is that the liberties for which our fathers fought arc worth even some fight ing by us, if need be. Very sane and creditable doc trine, it would appear to most folks. But it has gone hard with the So cialists. Their leaders are an nouncing now that Mr. Russell has eliminated himself from the list of possible candidates of Socialism for the Presidency in 1916, for which he had been prominently discussed. Per haps Mr. Russell will not much mind; perhaps, on the other hand, he will think it worth while to make an issue inside his party and learn whether the pacifist leaders can lead their millions of Presidential year Socialists any farther than the leaders took German Socialism. Our Socialist propaganda was largely a "made in Germany" af fair. It borrowed doctrines and or ganization methods there. Germany was the high hope of world Social ism. Then the war came, German Socialism went for its gun, lined up in the front ranks of the fighters, and academic Socialism molted be fore the passionate heat of greater, more immediate issues. Wo suspect that is what would happen if Mr. Russell would now make an issue with the pacifists of his party. It might be demonstrated that the Socialists in Ameiica are as willing to prepare, when that is the sensible thing to do, as the So cialists in Germany were to fight, when fighting becomes the national business. NORRIS AND O.REAT PALLS Declining to be discouraged by the attitude of Secretary of War Garrison, Senator Norris of Ne braska announces that he will rein troduce and press his bill for devel opment of Great Falls. The Sena tor has made a careful study Jf all the engineering data on the' subject, and it is fair to assume that he is as well eiyuippcd to judge both the merits of tho project and the pres ent need for putting it into execu tion. Moreover, he has on his side the judgment of the present Board of Commissioners of the District, and of Major William V. Judson, former Engineer Commissioner, and one of the ablest mch that ever oc cupied that position. Secretary Garrison has not re jected the Great Falls plan; he merely takes the position that the rity'h water supply is so far insured for the immediate future that there is no need to begin work at Great Palls before 1920; that is, no need that is made urgent by the city's water lcquircmcnts. In this he is prfSkably correct. But there is good reason entirely aside from water necessities of the future for getting this work under way. It has to do with the power development. Government operations of this character are notoriously leisurely in their development. Did a big Government job ever get completed on time? Or did the Government ever start such a job until thcic was need to complete it in haste? I'lcparcdncss is a good motto, in this connection, right now. Beyond uncertainty, there will be nftcr the Government commits itself to this enterprise, before HMnU kniwIiKrttf Ann lti tMnilA In nhv ' iiiulii nvtiunnj vuii uu tnv- in p-j sical construction. The lcjjal de partment of the District government obliRa-'piobably understands better than (anybody else tho importance oi rci ting an early beginning in this di rection. Senator Norris will havo no difficulty finding plenty of good reasons for insisting that there be no needless postponement. FRENCH LOAN IN ENOLAND The French government has au thorized issuance of the prospectus for a loan which it will place in England. There is something particu larly interesting and enlightening In this financial move, because it is an nounced that the proceeds of the loan will remain in England, and serve to pay current accounts which France owes in that country. Just a little while ago, France and England jointly borrowed a half billion dollars here; but instead of taking the cash away from us, they left their evidences of obligation here, to pay debts to us. Already they are negotiating another loan; and now France is borrowing in England; not to get money, which she doesn't need, but to maintain her credit and buying capacity, which arc of the greatest import ance. The world never looked so much like a neighborhood, or even a fam ily party, as it does, under war con ditions. Wherever there is finan cial capacity, it is drafted to sustain the fearful cost of the great con flict; and the Interrelationships among peoples, powers, and nations are so intimate that no possessor of that capacity may refuse to permit its utilization. RAIL FREIOHT BLOCKADES In the transportation field some of the older, cooler and wiser heads are pointing out that the great and growing railroad earnings are noi yet what they should be. They direct attention to the fact that the com parisons of earnings which arc most frequently made don't tell the whole story of the past and don't indicate the whole course of the future. Now it is true that to compare earnings, of the present with earn ings of a year ago is in effect to maVe a false comparison in so far as it may give the impression that a transportation system taking in mil lions more than it was taking in twelve months ago must suddenly have become a mint. This is true because scarcely a railroad in the United States could have maintained its solvency if the conditions of a year ago had been long continued. The same thing applies to 1913. In the fall of that vcar the very bottom was dropping out of the rail road business. Gross income and net income were then shooting downward with a velocity and force which threatened general disaster to American railways unless they cut their expenses to the bone, as they then began to do anil kept on doing desperately month after month. Nevertheless there is a sure way to tell that the great railways, irre spective of misleading comparisons, arc doing a huge' business, a profit able business, and a swiftly expand ing business. The proof lies in the fact that trunk lines arc refusing to take millions of tons of export traffic, white their presidents hold conferences over the situation, be cause, for lack of shipping at the ports, they are unable to discharge such freight and to transfer it into oceangoing bottoms. This doesn't mean that the rail roads haven't sidings and couldn't arrange depot accommodations for Fuch blockaded freight. It means that they can't spare pars to be tied up in the freight blockades. There is business enough domestic busi nessto keep all their cars and other equipment busy. It is the busy car that earns money. Every hour that a loaded car is tied up when it could bo hauling more freight is a dead loss to the rail road company. There is so much domestic busi ness that with this traffic the rail roads can haul their -ars virtually all the hours on the face of the clock. So those that arc in the ex port traffic they take out as fast as they can get them out, and those that are out they will not let go in until such shipping facilities shall be arranged as will permit the cars to earn as much in the export as in the domestic hauling. When great transpoi lation sys tems, even though they cut out tho export traffic, can fill all the cars they are able to get hold of, there is no mote doubt about the pros perity of those railroads than thcic is about the shining of the sun. This is the melancholy time of the year when the 'steam pipes are playing the dual role of radiator and refrigerator. Doubtless, when the spoils arc di vided, the Kurd wilt be awarded the peanut and massacre concession. The delegates to the National Commercial Gus Association could imbibe a few helpful hints by wait ing over until Congress convened.
