TUB l.orir.lt MOXnOE DOCTOIXB. The iic\t Prcsldont of the United States might well undertake, as a proof of his broad vision nnd construc? tive genius, to lay down an Interpreta? tion of the Monroo Doctrine that will represent tho attitude the American people at heart desire to take in the matter of foreign extensions cf power on the Western Hemisphere. He might \v111 undertake to answer tho ques? tions that are asked at homo und i broad: What Is the Monroo Doctrine? In how far do the popple support it? Upon what fundamental piinciplo is It based? As at present formulated, the famous doctrine Is becoming more and more a possible niunacn to our lnter tlohal peace Its now assertion by lehnte resolution brings it to light oi.ee more, r.ot in Us line and tradi? tional form of a demand that the New World bo permitted to Work but Its problems of government in It-i own way, but as a possible torch with which jingoes can stir Up war fevers, and as j a chip on the shoulder that other na? tions lire arrogantly requested to take' The Monroe Doctrine can be defined In two very different way's. It has on economic meaning and a human mean? ing, It may be the demand that oi.lt- j sidiiri recognise our commercial rights In our own territory. It may mean that the United States guarantees to the world that the hemisphere it dom atcs Is dedl< tted to democracy, nnd that no Interference with the methods ..f democracy will be tblqruted, in both cases, there comes In the issue or whether the Monroe Doctrine is lti t, tided to protect the lesser countries. ? i though protecting them to protect ourselves. Whatever of all potsible meanings can be attached to this In? ternational declaration, it Would be well Iii the cause of peace, ami for tho assurance of our own future actions,'to *? t all parlies be clearly apprised of its fln.il Import. We doubt whether the people know what ihejy want to Imply by the m, n r,bc Doctrine, or how far they are ready to back It up. But It cannot, be dodg? ed that there is always the possible challenge by a European poxver bent oh < \l, ndlng Its commercial sphere. Nor can It he doubted that such o. chal lc ngo would mean either nrmed re? taliation or n withdrawal of the prln i I pie. Wo attempt to decide nothing ol this Issue. But we affirm most ?? rtveiy, that if. as seems highly prob i hie, our whole system cf foreign rela? tions Is to be based on the Monroe I i trine, It would bo well, to linder? st..:..! exactly what fundamental and permanent significance is given to it. H cannot he a i,it of spread-eagle ' ? blo'gy. it must be made to mean wlutt we intend to stand for in work? ing out the destiny of all the Amert \x u sus v\ i) i. xiHitt.

And by tho way, when It comes to j what Mr. Wilson really did say regard-1 <ng undesirable Immigrants, wo are 1 reminded that there Is a story that on one occasion, way back yonder, a Judjte of an English nisi prlus own warned witnesses against testifying to any? thing they saw through "opaque" glass, ns such glass was llkoly to distort tho vision and tho objects Seen.! Since our Republican friends saw in Mr. "Wilson's deliverance speclflc men? tion of Irish and Northern European Immigrants who vcero not mentioned at all or even Implied, tho suggestion is that possibly tho spectacles of the foreign born editors through which they -were- looking were mado of the sumo sort of docoptlvo glass. Ho\vev< r, that Is another story from tho one that, owing to the progressive though con-j servutlvo administration of Woodrow Wilson, New Jersey has In the last two years done moro than aho had ^n tho preceding seventeen for the ameli? oration of the condition of tho toiling clnssos. thus leaving thoso who: would Inculcate the Impression that' the Democratic nominee Is not the friend of labor not a leg to stand on. j Woodrow Wilson's career of practical . obstructive statesmanship Is no a'; so- ' lutcly destructive of all contention to i the contrary that no worklngman who has taken the trouble to acquire even tho most elementary knowledge of it' can fail to recognise, and in duty toI his fellow worlclngmen concede the inct. TWENTIETH CENTURY SCHOOLS. Through tho land at this season parents are searching their hearts with earnestness and devotion to plan for' another year of school life for their children, it Is, In fact, the one su- i promo question for <i democracy. It I moans t'.ie betterment of the race. It means tho development eif the. Indi? vidual. It means tho ultimate .solu? tion of all temporary questions with which twentieth eentury lifo Is vexed. In the concrete. If there are 10.000,000 i-h'ldren spending this year In schools, J It means that 10.ooo.ooo years of liiiman lifo are being spent. Is It wonderful th'en that prayers and misgivings nc- i company the search? Is It strange that all thinkers and nil men of hope put tho question of education above tho issues of banking reform, of trust regulation, of tdi'tff reduction, even of ' national wealth and tho bounteous gifts of tho soil? This Is no small query that a weary and fading mother puts to herself as she makes button? holes In new school clothes. It Is tho very heart of her heart's life. What shall this little one be taught? And how shall It be taught? To bo wiser and happier than 1? If thcrb bo any certain answer to ? new generation shall somehow be; taught to r< aUy be wiser and happier. No education that does hoi mean those. ends is of any value. No education that hie ail a merely the prolongation of another existence through a span of years as a bnrren physical fact Is true education. For education means load- ! ing but. It gathers all the young of tbj c<iming years together and leads! some noblo and distant goal. This Is witat the twentieth century school mtist <!o. If it fails, not all its bright idors, its pictures.

The nation Is aflame with enthusiasm for you! A cnorua of millions of oarer voloes roars the mighty slogan. " We want Taft I " Never In history has a. states? man's personality so captured the devoted allegiance of a nation's people. The mtran of "Taft and Sherman" set countless hearts beatluc with loyal fervor and Stir the blood to a fever of alefil adoration. You are the Idol of the people! They all want you! Why. It waa only last week that we had a letter to that effect, and the week ->ofore ve had two. And so tt g-oea! Thundering throughout the land?a rcnlsMeas appeal!

MURDERS INCREASE; FEW ARE PUNISHED Since Slaying of Gambler Rosenthal, Am rican Prison Association Has Keen Compiling Figures. New York, August t.?Recent crimes . of violence, including the conspiracy resulting In Herman Rosenthal*U I death and tho atrocious murders "f ! two little girls, J\ii!a Connors and Mary Barbuto, have aroused the Amer? ican 1'rison Association, which IS pre? paring a pronouncement against the cout ts. "In New York City last year thero were 119 cases of homicide, while In LOndori, with a far grr'ale-r popula? tion, there were only nineteen.-' says Judge. Do Courcoy, of The Supreme Court of Massachusetts, who is che.lr man of the American rrisji, AssDcia tlon's committee on criminal procedure. Then he adds: "In the United St it -H punishment for crlmo is slow and tin- I certain, in England it Is swift atl*l. certain." These recent crimes In New It j City, which have stirred the country i and caused comment in European newspapers, will be the subject' of a special report by the Prison Associa? tion, advance sheets of which indi? cate that criminal procedure in the courts Is to blame for the prevalence of such outlawry. "Ten thoiisand homicide crimes are committed In the Prilled Slates each year." says the head of Hie New Vork St.it- Reformatory, at Elmlra, who is a leading crlmlndloglst active in the Prison Association, "One hundred and eighteen homicide crimes were com? mitted in Chicago in 10?'.'. Twenty ,.r the sum,- kind of crimes wer,- Commit? ted for the same time in London, and London Is four times the size of Chi? cago. "Mom!,ill 'crime in the United States has increased 480 per cent, slni 1SS9 Thereof, the ratio of convic? tions Is less than 1? per cent. The same ratio for Germany is 06 per cent. Homicidal crime In the United States exceeds the total of that of any ten civilised nation;:, outside of RtlS8|h." Will Show That Courts Ire to Blame, From these and other statistics be? ing complied, and by Judge lie Cour eey's significant comparison with Eh'sr? land, it is apparent to crtmlnalogista '-?-.it the. Prison As Delation intends to show that the courts are largely to blame for the prevalence of crime. Nearly thirty persona are murdered each day In the United States, ex? cluding Alaska and the Islnnd depend? encies. Not one murderer in four !h the United States Is brought to trial, according to the association's statis? tics, and not one in t went y-l!vo of those brought to trial receives a death sentence. One commentator on these figures reduces it to the parlance of the race track betting ring by declaring.? "If you Commit a murder It Is- better j than a three to one shot Hint you will nevei be brought lo trial. If you lose that bet it Is better than a ten to one shot that you will never be sentenced to the penitentiary, and li 'k belter .than an eighty to one shot that you will never do hanged or electrocuted." That Is. It I? bette'r thnn an .eighty to one shot thai tho slayers of Herman Itoseuthal and the i,i tile who kiib.t Mary (iarbuto will never be eli Iro < un d for lliolr crimes lulla Connors murderer billed himself. Tiny have more than eighty chances In ihelr favor to escapo the d'.iih penalty, against one that thej will he ade? quately punished according to law. Increase of DOO Murders. Jucge lie Cburccy reports shows thai there were nearly ?00 more murders in the Untied Mates last year than In the previous year, yet, I.at on,. In eignty-six was capitally punished, uj against one of seventy-four for the i ro\ ions year. 'lib I a shows, as only hgures can show, that violent crimes have Increased alarmingly, while the notorious laxity of the police and the courts has be? come ? ven mote lax. thus Increasing the ratio of the effect of crime upon the people Kor each million of the population in 1006 there were US homicides in the United States; in Italy less than fifteen; In Canada less than thirteen, in Great Ifrltaln bss than nine, and In Germany less than flyo homicides tor every mlll'on of the population. i if tin nineteen persons who com inlttci. murder In London last year (lve committed suicide beford they were arrested, AH of tin- others, except fouii were arreste.i und either con Vi ted and executed or were sent to insane asylums, excepting one. who committed suicide ul.il,- in prison awaiting trial. The American Press Association will call attention to a comparison of the figures in London with the llgurcB of New Vorlt City; where no murders wei-e committed lt? Ihn Manie time. That the excessive use of strong liquors is the primary cnuse for the violent erlmrs in this country is dis? prove a by the association. The use of He|iiors In this country is not con? sidered at! alarming vie.-, and figures are submitted to substantiate this. !.e?s Siruiie. Drink. ?'There Is certainly less strong drink, including in this term whiskey, gin, brandy and rum. cons lined In St. Louis or Chlcn in than In any city of half their size In Great Britain," the n port continues, 'lyet the traveler com? pare Liverpool and Glasgow With St Louis or Chicago In this respect With vastly i.ore drunkenness In Liverpool and Glasgow there ..re fewer murders there because In England punishment Is swiff and certain, while In St. Louis ! it Is slow and uncertain ??An unsettled state of society is n 'cause for the prevalence of crime. Be? tween the year ISIS and ISO0 the most I heterogeneous population that any 'spot on the face of the earth could pre? isen! was to t>e found In the territory of California, In the c.itrcr search for gold "o n of i very nation and fron, 1 every elltr.e form.-d a society nS rude ins It was ephemeral. t'onrts were I quickly found to b.- a necessity, but I they were Hc'arcoly established before jlhey Were corrupted, and the worst element nt Of Co dictated and defied their decrees. Deaths by violence be? tau to e.\c ?? 1 !:: number llwse by dls caeu or accident "In lk-,l the people, long suffering anil "low lo move, at last arose In t.. Ir might aril grappled ?Ith the problem. It Is the same problem we have to? il uj -how to prevent t.-e Incrcas. Of Crime. Its solution was tho Vigilance committee, -a i.os.' Justice was unre? lenting and utipurchosable, whose code knew no technicalities, whose decrees ?a er,, not appealable, and whose swift? ness of ex- cutlon has known no'parolli in judicial history. Vldl'nncr Commit Ice Kept Dons Crime? "During t(o- reign of this txtiaord Ir.ary tribunal crimes against Hie pcr Non were leduocl to a minimum. Tho transit! in pi rlod was not ended, so? ciety remained as mixed and unccr ! tain in I?31 as before 1801. but bu ? t?.r*? I'M punishment for crime was very slow and uncertain, while in li5i ? it was very prompt and certain. "lly und by tin- vigor of the organi? sation languished, with the object ut j its formation apparently accomplish? ed, and it came to an end from a sheer lack of anything to do The ordinary courts of law with their forms and technicalities, asserted themselves, and : while society became more settled j crime multiplied." Therefore, crlmlnologlsts believe, tho Koschthol and tho Julia Connors and Mary Barbuto murders may bad to a reorganization of the Courts which I will make Justice as swift and certain us it was In California and is in llng i land and Germany.
