SOME NEEDED LIGHT.
President Wallace of the American Conservation Society, speaking to
the great meeting at Kansas City touched a live wire in the intricate net
work of our social and economic systems. He was speaking of waste
in agriculture, and of how, through conservation of the land, the old,
old soils of Europe are mad* to yield twice, or more than twice, as much
as the soil of the big country which is still comparatively virgin. In doing
thifl the touched upon the prodigality of "statesmanship" in giving away
millions of acres of our best land to railway corporations, resulting in con
stant promotions of emigration and immigration which have brought, in
their turn, increases in land value out of proportion with increases in
their fertility and productiveness. The inevitable result has been a con
stant tendency toward higher prices, said the speaker.
In this connection Mr. Wallace pointed out that the movement city
ward in this country, hastened by advances in science which have opened
up many new avenues of employment for young people of both sexes, was
also promoted, until lately, by the existence of a cheap food supply, making
it possible for large city populations to subsist comfortably on the prod
ucts of the farms and at comparatively small cost. He predicted that
food prices can never again be what they were a few years ago, arid that
prediction is certain to be found verified in the facts. The problem of
the cost of living has so many angles that we can never reach its solu
tion by surveying it from but one, or even from only several, of them.
Higher conservation of the soil can vastly increase food supplies, but it
will also increase the value of lands and the cost of investment in tilling
them.- It could force prices down measurably, but not to their old levels.
And if city populations are to continue growing at the expense of the
Tural districts, either wages must be adjusted to a higher scale of ex
penses or the expenses of the working classvmust be reduced.
Earl Grey has been telling the Canadians that talking about the Mon
roe doctrine doesn't alter the fact that, if Canada were imperilled, it
would be the British fleet that would save her. If the delusion that we
went Canada badly enough to forcibly annex it is as strong in England
as in Canada itself, the Dominion should remain a British possession.
They are one people in their foolishness.
Solemn announcement comes from Washington that the United States
will keep out of the controversy between Italy and Turkey. Of course the
United States will keep out. so the announcement seems foolish. There are
a lot of people who imagine the United States should butt into every fuss.
Dr. Wiley says the poor should turn to agriculture, and that big fac
tories in cities should be discouraged. Evidently the doctor takes his eye
away from the microscope now and then to see things in general perspective.
Soo Day was some day for the exposition. Now on to the next. Next
week will be full of big days and the big show will close in a burst of
enthusiastic display by the traveling men of the state.
With the endorsement of the railway presidents and all the agricul
tural experts, Superintendent Gilbreath ought to feel vindicated along
with the big exposition he framed up for the state.
J. Pierpont Morgan complains that the country is at this time with
out a safe avenue for the investment of surplus money. This will be
shocking news to the dealers in real estate.
Up to date the sentiment of all visitors to the Industrial exposition
is unanimous in its praise. And strange to say the highest praise comes
from visitors from outside the state.
Colonel Bryan is devoting himself to the theoretical side of politics.
The mathematical side has floored him so many times that he has no
further interest in it.
More lives have been lost in trying to perfect the aeroplane than in
any other enterprise in recent years. The aviators are brave beyond the
point of discretion.
Edison says he likes America better than he does Europe. America
should be content, even while losing its Astors and its Crokers, if it can
keep its Edisons.
Some extreme agitators are disposed to annihilate all big business and
throw the supreme court of the United States in for good measure.

Superstition That Is Ancient.
In many parts of Great Britain the
superstition still survives that it is
folly to save a drowning man, as he
will sooner or later do an injury to the
rescuer. The superstition comes down
from our ancestors, yet traces of it
exist among the Sioux and other In
dians, who seem to have inherited it
from aboriginal sources. The belief is
most prevalent in Cornwall and vari
ous parts of Scotland.
