It is gratifying" to learn that the Pacific coast senators for the most part voted for the bill. Among others, Works and , Poindexter, who may be classed as advanced insurgents, did not join their dis gruntled brethren, who. like La .Eollette, , _. fought the bill from motives of personal jealousy of MrJTaft, whom the} sought to deprive of the credit which is his for the origination of a great progressive measure. The history of congress does not show a more remarkable alignment of factions than this, which is recorded in the final vote for the bill. In this vote we find standpatters supporting a "-bill to lower duties, while so called progressives were arrayed against the measure in positive repudiation of the opinions that they had voiced in the tariff debate last year. These insurgent senators found their chief support among that queer faction which somebody has called the "Joe Bailey democrats," who are more hidebound in their attachment to the special interests than the confessed apostles of JOO per cent ad valorem as the measure for protective duties. The Orcgonian describes the confusion of politics: ~" Strange Align ment of Factions on Reciprocity If no senator voted for the bill except those who sincerely approve it, it would have no more chance than the proverbial snowball in the recent hot -.'her. lor its supporters would be few." The standpatters profess to support it for the sake of party regularity, but they hate it as the first reach in the citadel of protection. Their real reason for supporting it is that they know the mass of the rank and file of their .own party is behind.the president. The democrats support, the bill for the reason that it is in line with their party policy, bir? they would vote " against it if they dared, because it comes from a republican president and they must share the credit with him. They, too, arc driven on by the irresistible weight of public opinion in their own party. But a corporal's / guard holds out, including Bailey, who is a law unto himself. Ilcyburn leads irreconcilable standpatters, vowing lie will hold the sacred bannerof protection on the ramparts so long as a foothold remains". The insurgents are in an even more anomalous position. The reg ulars vote for hat they don't want because they dare not do otherwise; , the democrats vote for what they want with a wry face because they don't like the politics of the man who offers it them; the insurgents vote, against what they do want to spite the author of the bill or out of "pure darned contrariness." They have been shouting for reciprocity for years, but when it is offered to them they refuse to take it and lay their sins on the back of the long suffering farmer. has always been afflicted with a surplus of champions, but never gets 'lis wrongs righted. What the country wants is 'results, and, having got them, will not. quarrel over the process, although some amusement may created in contemplation of the confusion of motives that has charac terized the debate and the vote. It is now intimated that Canada may hold back, or rather that the tory minority in the dominion parliament may be able by ; fili bustering to postpone indefinitely the passage of the measure. That may compel the dissolution of parliament and a general election; hut the ultimate result in favor of reciprocity need not be doubted. SOME rather odd and belated comment has been evoked by the recent treaty in settlement of the forty years' controversy over pelagic scaling and the preservation of the fur seal- herd in —- Maskan waters. The impression seems ,to \i ,'• have got abroad that we have surrendered by treaty a valuable right. '.-, .,, Thus the New Orleans Picayune: It is to be regretted, however, that our repre- ' —' -, • ■... '—" scntativc.felt "compelled, to practically admit that tlfe jurisdiction \vc have hitherto exercised was unwarranted and that our claim that Bering sea is marc clausum is' not justified. This is, however, an age of yielding for the sake of peace; hence it is reasonable to assume that the scaling agreement could not have been avoided." If the net' result serves to restore the fur seal to his former abundance there will be little cause to regret a claim which probably'resulted in few practical. ', profits. „ ", /The contention that the Bering is,a closed sea was abandoned years ago. In fact, it -never had any real foundation, as a glance' at the map might show. This contention was first raised by James G. Blame when he was secretary of state, but was at once rejected by foreign diplomats, who had no difficulty in showing, that it was untenable. . .""■:■ '.''.'.'.■ '■..:.. '^Bb Misunderstand ing of the Fur Seal Treaty The matter was submitted to international ; arbitration before a tribunal that sat in. Paris in 1893 ami it was then > decided that the Bering was; part of the high seas and that the seals belonged to no nation in particular. The same tribunal agreed that proper regula tions for the industry were most desirable and a code for that pur pose was formulated, but as-Japan was not a party to the agreement; pelagic sealing, contituiedyto destroy the herd in the most wasteful fashion. ■•' . v . -..,.■.;.. v- The.new treaty brings all parties concerned into agreement on a reasonable basis and gives promise of the restoration of a profitable industry. - . NOTHING of /especial- importance attaches to- the. admission made by former Senator Aldrich in his testimony before-the senate committee investigating the election of Lorimer. Mr. — — ' Aldrich testified that he.had taken an:active part in advising Edward Mines, the "jackpot" lobbyist, concerning the election of a senator ', from :Illinois. He simply wanted. a standpat senator elected, and in that sense Lorimer was quite satislactury to him: All this was quite in -line with what might have been:expected from-Aldrich. ':. /' The important feature of Aldrich's testimony lies in the proof that Mr. Taft iiad no-candidate for the vacant seat in the.senate. .The: president did express a - wish that the Illinois' deadlock might , ■' . ." '. ' ."';':' •' '' ''-': t> - ' -' " "" ' A Political:- Falsehood Laid to Rest EDITORIAL PAGE OF THE CALL A Lesson in Manners be broken and the seat filled, but he expressed no preference as between candidates. « The significance of the affair is in the fact that Hines, seeking to justify the work done in "putting over" Lorimer, had tried to shelter behind the president and alleged that, Aldrich had told him Mr. Taft favored the election of Lorimer. That story was, of course, wildly improbable and was further discredited by reason of its source, but it was eagerly seized on by enemies of the president in the hope of identifying him in some degree with the election of Lorimer. To be sure, nobody outside of the clique actively engaged in backbiting the president attached any importance to the tale, which is now conclusively set at rest, even as political material, . THE treaty recently concluded with Japan and now in effect eliminates the paragraph in the former convention relating to the restriction.of immigration and leaves the regulation of this ~~ —- | traffic on the basis of what may be called a "gentlemen's agreement" with Japan, which j undertakes to prevent the coming of coolies | to America., " ~~ This is a most unusual departure in diplomacy, which .'. can only" be '■ tested by results. Another treaty is pending or under consideration between this country and Japan relative to the adjustment of controversies by arbitration,' and Rep resentative Kent of this state desires to exclude from its scope the consideration of matters connected with the subject of immigration. Mr. Kent is quoted: , , „. A Surrender of National Sovereignty "I look upon the general proposition of arbitration, with the abolition of expensive armaments of war, as the best service that can be rendered to the world," he says. -/'We" can look forward to a time when there will be no armies and nothing hut a navy as. an international police force. There are,; however, certain limitations to matters that can be arbitrated. These limitations are exactly similar to matters which in civil life can not be settled in court, and, indeed, .would be thrown out of court if an attempt should be made to have them settled there. I hold that we have a fundamental right to determine for ourselves: First, those whom we shall expect as immigrants; second, the requirements of naturalization and citizenship; third, questions of alien land tenure. These can not be subject to international arbitration any more than the question of inva sion of our territory can be a question subject to arbitration. It is of the utmost importance that this principle be laid down in the pending treaty with Great Britain, first, because the Hindoos, as citizens of Great Britain might be forced upon us; second and more important still, because treaties' with Japan or with China or with : other Oriental people must be based upon the same lines as .'the' treaty with Great Britain., We could not leave questions of immigration and citizenship open to Great Britain and close the questions as.against Japan without having tendered what might be considered an insult and cause for trouble." The principles here laid down seem to be well founded and they can scarcely be superseded by the plan of a, "gentlemen's agree ment" between nations. When we come to negotiate treaties with China and with Great Britain relative to the exclusion; of Asiatic immigration they are likely to demand equal treatment with Japan. The truth is that the regulation of immigration is a purely domestic affair that should never be made the subject of international contract. To do so is a surrender of national sovereignty. THE weighty and warlike utterances of Lloyd-George, speaking ,1 on behalf of the British ; ministry, lend a rather sensational aspect to the unpleasant 'mess over Morocco. and are equivalen ; *""""' __>, to . a declaration that Great Britain stands behind France in the dispute with Germany. The - British ' chancellor of the exchequer gives the countercheck quarrelsome. - *-_____-_—— . Nevertheless, the affair is not in the least likely to get outside of the diplomatic field. There will be "conver sations" of the powers and quite 'possibly, some excited talk in the newspapers.-' If Morocco. is ; to be partitioned between France and Spain, then Germany, demands "compensation,'' which is the diplo matic name for a share of the spoils. Assuming the necessity of partition, it seems difficult to dispute the justice of Germany's claim It is true that the Algeciras convention, roughly speaking assigned Morocco as a joint sphere jof influence for France and Spain, but such treaties are never final and are binding only just as long as there are guns to back them. It is easy to 'find a pretext for their Repudiation. In this instance the action of Spain" appears to have; supplied the pretext. "T, he English view is stated by the London Saturday Review: • Diplomacy of the Imagina tive Order The action of Spain;first brought complications, and the*consequent attitude of France has-given Germany some excuse for her recent > move. he pretext invented, by Spain for taking action was so futilethat nobody has ever even pretended. to betaken in by it. But-the odd thing, is that the French government has never taken up a strong line onthe matter they, have never made a vigorous and determined protest, and Germany ; :.ma y well have thought that a scramble for the spoils was beginning and was determined to have her share. :•- . '-'; • *. ■ *l * ...... But; these ground** for: explaining German action, even Spanish " acquiescence, do-not explain.why:she has pitched upon Aguadir in par ticular to demonstrate her determination not to be left but of new devel- « ..; opments in Morocco. It 'is."worthnoting that this port is most conveni- J. ently situated for an Atlantic voyage. As things are today New York' is by 48, hours nearer: sailing distance of Rio than is Kiel. Wcre-Aguadir to become a German coaling, station, the United '■ States would lose this 4 advantage. If Germany means to remain, it may be that this is the : secondary if not the primary, cause of her : presence'there. The attempt: here made; to involve the ; United States in the affair is amusing./ It appears to recall the ;entertaining diplomacy which Mr. Phillips Oppeiihcim; peddles with "so much profit in his noted works of fiction. .'

Biddefdrd, Me., two men and a woman were recently jailed on very serious charges, because i the two little daughters of the woman told the sheriff some startling stories about a grave out in their yard.": Fortunately the man who was supposed to have been inhabiting the grave appeared in the nick of time.and proved that, he had not been murdered and the accused were set free. •"* And now—courage comrades, this is what I am driv ing at—the children's father" has come forward and declared that his children got their idea of a grave from a story which he once told them. To frighten them away from the swamp and brook in which there are some deep and dangerous holes, he "says he told the children that a man and two cows were buried in that vicinity. A rather ludicrous outcome for a near-tragic situation, isn't it? * But I don't believe that father will try again very, soon to make his children mind by making up bugaboos for them, do you? _ And I just hope that some of the fathers and. mothers who read about this woman's narrow escape from a murder trial will also be impressed with the same lesson. • , Not long ago an oven more terrible tragedy than this was caused by the same trick. A woman who was crossing the Atlantic with two little children tried to keep the baby from crying by telling him that if he cried again she would throw him out the porthole into the ocean. A few minutes later, while the mother was out of the stateroom, the baby cried and the other child actu ally carried out its mother's threat. V Of course these are unique and horrible examples of the clanger of telling lies to children to frighten them into"obedience. Let's take a more common place one. A prominent doctor has recently written to me to ask if I will protest against using the doctor, as a bugbear with which to frighten children. He says he is constantly hampered in his diagnoses of children's diseases by their unreasoning terror because they have been told that if they aren't good their mother will get the doctor to come and cut out their tongues or perform some other "pleasant" little operation. The result is that when they are really sick and the doctor is sent for they run screaming away at sight of him. and a careful diagnosis is almost impossible, That really serious 'results might follow from such a state of affairs any one can easily see. Every fear is a fetter to" our fullest development and our freest action. We who are older have learned this by. hard experience. Then, surely, we ought to try to fcee our children from any fears that they may naturally have instead of serving our momentary convenience by binding them with new shackles. the Land :of the Bravo."
