Senator Aldrleh, chairman of the finance committee of the Senate, has written to President Taft that he fa vors the confirmation of the Canadian reciprocity Agreement. This will re store Senator Aldrich in the confidence of many people, who have not ap proved of his tariff attitude in Con gress. The Progressive League of New Or leans will' pay for a special train for Colonel Theodore Roosevelt and will also provide a $10,000 banquet in his honor, to be given In the historic French Opera House, when the form er President of the United States pays a visit to the Crescent City next month. Who said Teddy had lost his popularity? When Speaker Jo-riVi c. n re signs his gavel on March 4 he will have achieved the longest record for Iho speakership, with one exception. Mr. Cannon has served four full terms, or eight years. This record Is sur passed only by that of Henry Clay, who was chosen six times and served an aggregate of ten years. Mr. Clay's service in the speaker's chair, how ever was not continuous. Hobson and his Jap war scare will not down. It's a dull day in Congress when Hobson doesn't try to impress his colleagues with his belief in the nn preparednrsg of the I'nited States for war. Congress, however, isn't easily Feared, nor are the people. Despite the ravings of Hobson the country Is con fident that the friendly relations be tween the I'nited States and Japan will continue. The U. S. Supreme Court yester day handed down a decision that a railroad company cannot give trans portation in exchange for advertising. The newspapers and tho railroads have long accepted this Interpretation of the Hepburn act, and since lflOfi, when the law went Into effect, their bulnes di'HiT:g with each other have been done on a strictly cash basis. And there has been no complaint on part of the newspapers, either. They have gained, rather than lost, by the r.ow arrangement. CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS. Michigan Is probably face to face with the necessity of a new congres sional district apportionment. The na tional house of representatives has passed th Crumpacker bill, which en larges the house membership from S91 to 433. The senate will probably agree to this measure; and if the bill becomes a law, Michigan will have thirteen Instead of twelve members of congress In the lower house. This will probably mean an entire ly new arrangement of congressional districts In the state, anil the state legislature will do the dividing into districts. While the nation-wide basis of rep resentation In a limine of 433 members is 212,000 population, the basis in Michigan will be a little larger, due to the fact that there is a fair sized frac tion in our favor when division Is made on the basis of 212,000. In other words, with a delegation of thirteen members, and having a pop ulation under the new census 2,Slo,i73, for our own purposes of calculation, the accurate arithmetical basis for redisricting the state should bo nn al lottment of 217,000 people to each con gressional district. The greatest Increase of population j Is In the first district the city of De troit. The population of that district (Detroit City) has increased from 233, 000 to 376.000. This is very nearly enough to entitle the first district to two members of congress. THE BUSINESS OUTLOOK. In general business the outlook Is more cheerful. nuyi Henry Clews. Trade In the west shows signs of re cuperation and tho Impression Is gain ing that the tide has returned. Wheat and cotton are deellQinj; from their recently abnormally hijjh level, u fac tor which will help foivign trade, stim ulate business activity and aid In re ducing the cost of living. There are sinns of oncoming uctivity in the steel business, more liberal orders having been placed during tho past two weeks; and now that the, railroads are scour ing funds it Is practically certain that l hey will so.m become larger buyers of needed materials. The season is also approaching when constructive work will begin In our large cities, and this also will le an Important factor in stimulating demand. The textile trades are showing more activity. und,B , HU,.CV, n,,tlt.rt M. Mmit- as distributers' shelves are bare of j K((tm,rv n.lgii,Hl. and who was elect- stocks the outlook is pood for hurras - Ing demands. Many cotton and wool- en mills are still running on short time. but the prospects are that they v Hi soon be obliged to at least partially sumo, one or me very oest icaiures In the outlook is the continued expan sion In exports and a decline in im ports, which left an excess of $61,000,- 000 in exports In January compared with only $10,000,000 a year ago. These are the favorable elements In the situation. The unfavorable feat- i tires are few, yet Important enough to require watching. Among these are the Supreme Court cases, which may not be handed down for some weeks to come. Nevertheless, the fact that these decisions will affect nearly 1,200 holding companies, having over S.000 subsidiaries and representing more than $10,000,000,000 of capital, means that a great mass of investors will await the effect of these all-important decisions with intense Interest. The impression gains that these companies have been working against the law. If this Impression proves correct, lt means a wholesale readjustment or this mass of capital to legal require ments. Of course, as we have often stated, this does not mean any de struction of property, or loss of right ful earning capacity, and If the Su preme Court should point the way of solution, as Is generally expected, no seriously disastrous shock will follow. Nevertheless the uncertainty, that must remain until the decisions are announced, will be an impediment to activity in many minds and an occa sion for apprehension to others. When the results are known then we may expect a rebound as an expression of relief. Concerning the railroads, a de cision from the Interstate Commerce Commission has long been . .expected. Something- in the nature of a compro mise Is nnticipated, since some of the Western rates are known to have been unreasonably high, and many of the Kastern rates are admittedly very low. I'pon the whole It Is evident .that the railroads are not now Very, fearful as to the result of this decision; their confidence being shown by their ac tivity in financing and carrying out projected Improvements. It Is known Women Should Pay More Attention to Present Bay Athletics. Especially if Living In the City. Dy VIRGINIA C. CILDERSLEEVE. Dean of Barnard College. IC VIEWFOINT THAN TIER BROTHER. It is raro to find a college man who excels both in the classroom and on tho athletic field. I bclievo most men's colleges have a rulo similar to tho ono just mado at Vassar that a man must attain at least PASSING RANK to bo eligible for tho collego teams. But few men do distinctive work and also find timo for tho other "grind" of elab orate training for gridiron or baseball diamond. In tho girls' colleges thcro is a marked difference. They combine cport and scholarship to a wonderful dogrco and really get very close to tho old Roman ideal of the mens 6ana in corporo sano, and they succeed because they keep athletics in tho proper place and not every place. A pport should not bo turned into a trado - a money making trade. The GAME SHOULD BE TLAYED FOR THE GAME AND NOT FOR THE GAIN. Women Lavo not yet commercialized their ath letics. There is that much to bo said for them. MANV WOMEN OUTSIDE OF COLLEGES, ESPECIALLY IN CITIES, WOULD BE MUCH BETTER OFF IF THEY PAID MORE ATTENTION TO ATHLETICS. THERE 8H0ULD BE MANY MORE GYMNASIUMS FOR WOMEN. MEN HAVE PLENTY-AT T -LUBS, AT THE ARMORIES, AT THE- Y.-M. C,-A.. that some of the railroads have not earned their dividends In the last two or three months, but better thins are expected of the future as traffic In creases and unnecessary expenses are curtailed. The prompt passage of the Reci procity bill In the House at Washing ton was encouraging. The concessions In this measure upon either side are not very great, but the movement Is a step In the right direction. What the action of the Senate will be It is im possible to determine at this writlin Should that body by any means fail to tut. there is a sirens probability that President Taft will call an extra ses sion. This, however, the Senate docM imt desire, and fr political reasons it Is not considered ood tactics to pre cipitate a general reopening- of the t a i i IT questions hii Ii as might easily happen in event of a special session. QUIET STATE CONVENTION. So far as can be discerned, the state L.,.,.tln wln ,i,.,.dedl.v tame thi spring-.

So far no opposition to these re-jtwo ,m.n has u,.vt.ip0ll aiul lt s alto gether likely they will be nominated In the Republican convention by acclama tion. I.uther L. Wright Is retiring as su perintendent of public instruction. He Is a candidate to succeed himself and so far nobody has been mentioned as a contender for the place. There are two vacancies on the board or regents of the University of Michigan. One results from the elec tion of Chase S. Oshorn to be governor and the other from the retirement of Judge Loyal E. Knappen of Grand Rap Ids. Governor Osborn appointed L. L. Hubbard of Houghton to fill his vacan cy and as the upper peninsula Is con ceded the right to the place, it Is al together likely Mr. Hubbard will have no opposition to his nomination for the full term. For Judge Knappen's place, Grand Rapids Is united in support of Benja min S. Hanchett, and his general pop ularity throughout the state has re sulted in pledges from Wayne, and lt Is not expected Mr. Hanchett will have (pposition. Two candidates arc in the field for member of the state board of educa tion. When W. A. Cotton of Kscanaba resigned Governor Osborn appointed Thomas W. Nadal of Olivet. Judge J. M. Harris of lloyne City had previous ly announced his candidacy for tho place and his friends ure now busy pushing his claims, with a prospect that for this office there may be a lit tle difference of opinion to enliven the state convention. Two members of tho state board of ugrlculture retire this Fpring. They are William I,. Carpenter of Detroit and William J. Obersdorffer of Steph enson. W. K. Prudden of Iinslng is a candidate for one of the places and It is probable Mr. Obersdorffer will wish to succeed himself.
