J t THE SOCIAL POSITION V
4 OF THE MEN OF THE NAVY
I I V The following comment from the
4 t it V iMoblle Register relative to the social
YVA position of the men of the American
I navy inspired by a recent interview I
1 f with Roar Admiral Wise formerly com
nandant of the Pensacola navy yard t
1 V will prove of especial interest to Pen 1
foi V sacohaus at this time in view of the
I J approaching visit of the battleship
t jft squadron to thisport
1 1
On Saturday night Rear Admiral
l k Wise who Is In Mobile Investigating
I 1 ji the manner In which steamboats aro
t 1 inspected stated to a represuntative
Ij 4i of the Register that he would half
with delight the time when the men
4 of the American navy wguld be valued
1 at their real worth and not ba treated
as social outcasts The interviewer
4 togged to differ with the retired naval
officer that the bluejackets are class
ed below ordinary workingraen by tho
citizens of nlaces where there are na
val stations but the rear admiral cited
I stances of his own knowledge which
lemonstrated the truth of his asser
lone One instance will suffice for the
3 mole At Newport Xews while Rear
I Ldmiral Wise was in command of the
I Raining squadron an enlisted seaman
I entered the hall or the Young Mens
S Christian Association and was given
tho cold shoulder by those present
SI Dpffing his uniform he paid another
S S J visit to the same institution and was
p warmly welcomed until he mentioned
I the coldness of his former reception
I i Then It was explained to him that
i tljat branch of the Young Mens Chris
tIti tian Association did not care to have
S I1i1 mon of the navy among Is members
Jtll and that there was a special branch
lii for them Rear Admiral Wise has de
11 voted much time to movements for
S Ill ameliorating the condition of United
1 States sailors and Is an enthusiast
S nimber of a civilian organiation which
I iii has for its object the overcoming of
i the ostracism which appears 1o follow
tiL enlistment
And now comes a Bluejacket in
I the New York Sun who describes such
1 1 an instance as the naval officer comet
t plains of Certain petty officers at Old
t S Point Comfort who were almost frozen
t through not helps able to reach their
vessels at Hampton Roadh in steam
launches applied late at night for
I rooms At one hotel they were put on
vitTi the excuse that no rooms well
1 vacant and at another they were told
cl that enlisted men in the uniform of
i
I the service could pot be accommodat S
t ed Even the proprietor of a cheap
t restaurant refused them admission I
i In complaining of the treatment and
4 of similar instances Bluejacket asks
the pertinent questions I
Does a man when he takes the oath
and puts on his uniform become disfranchised S
S
franchised Is It the uniform of shameS
S or the uniform of honor Must hej
I
S forever be looked down upon by the i
general public because he adopted the V
profession of serving his country I I
venture to affirm that In no other
country in the world does such a state
of affairs exist I maintain that there
V are thousands of men in blue shirts
who are as much at home in a Fifth
avenue drawingroom as in the fore
castle of a ship and those who read
SI S this be they service men or civilians
trill bear me out In What I say
And yot the people who Pet like I
5 mobs when a man in the uniform of
the United States navy appears in
time of peace go crazy over the same
uniform in time of war Although 90 I
per cent of the men of the navy are
American born the percentge pf de
sertions is high compared with Otberj
natives and Rear Admiral Wise sees I
In the unAmerican treatment aqcord I
edthe men of the navy while they are
ashore one of the prime causes for
desertion
V The intellectual status of the men of
the American navy is higher than in
any similar body and they are fre
t quentlj of sooa family Why they
should he tabooed for their uniform is
1 inexplicable It is a refleotion on the
good sense of those who put this slight
S t
i
upon the ahrcc and it is worse in Its
disrospect for the uniform they wear
whjlch shouldVbp dear to the heart of
every Amerlcan

I The effort of Theodore Roosevelt io
break down racial prejudice in this
couStrytijat Is prejudice against the
negro race by practicing social equal

the negro upon communities in the

of such communities and by making
a leading negro educator his political
adviser accepting his suggestion as

The Evansvllle Ind Courier has
been enjoined by Judge Rasch of the
Vanderberg County Circuit Court from
publishing sketches of defendant on
trial for a criminal offense
The restraining order docs not set
forth any belief that this defendant
will be caricatured but the Injunction
is issued on the sole ground that thu
cause of the defendant will be preju
diced
If Indiana has a sfttlute authorizing
an injunction restrIcting publication
on this specific ground without further
establishing thcyprejudice such statute
should Tie repealed at duce as hostile
to the best interest of the State
In the absence of such specific stat
ute It would seem to us that the In li
ana Judge has shown a lack of wis
dom equaled only by the arbitrary Ia
tufb of his ruling
It Is well known that the law of libel
applies to sketches as Well as written
or printed matter The fear of libel
however is not the ground for this in
junction It is issued merely on
the ground that the publication and
use of said picture would prejudice
him the defendant in the criminal
prosecution and his cause in the
trial No proof is set up showing
wherein the injury will exist no alle
gation claiming any4 violation of Jegal
rights nevertheless Judge Rasch en
joins the publication of the picture
auJ In doing so etga precedent that
if sustained threatens the freedom ft
the press t
If the courts may enjoin the pub 5
lication of the picture of a defendant
it is an easy step to forbid publication
of the account ofthe trial itself which
often contains wordpictures of the
parties in interest
The law seeks jiot only the punish
ment of a criminal Jiut also the pre
vention of further crime In this lat
ter aspect the feqr of publicity is often
a more potent agent than the punish
ment fixed by the lawThere are many
Individuals whor to accomplish illegal
measures would gladly pay fines but
who are deterred from the unlawful
act by the fcqr of publicity it is
this factor for gopa morals that Judge
Rasch endeavors to throttle with hisj
t6 us untenable position and while
not presuming to pass on the guilt
or innocence of tife defendant before
Judge Raschs court we submit that
the injunction against the Courier Jg
unsound unsafe and most hostile to
the principles of law and equity as es
tablished in this country V

Ihe S Relation of V
Capital to
Labor By AUGUST BELMONT
4L40 JJJJ PrciidcntNational
V Cfvls Federation
r
V V P
T AM glad to testify to the efficacy and efficiency of face to
fac c iiferences with honorable employees I pronounce
I
I it a practical method of Teaching a common understanding
I oJ points in controversy FROM WHICH HARMON
I = Ql 44lfeMENTS ARE POSSIBLE and if I
may refer to my own experience from such conferences over con j
troverted points followed a better understanding and a harmonious j
agreement in the conduct of a great public service corporation I
Brains and muscle money and material arc the essentials of a
i
successful transportation company There are those who find the
ways and means for construction equipment and operation those
who provide engineering mechanical and technical skill and those
who furnish labor Capital labor and material must lie dormant
UNTIL UTILIZED BY BRAINS AND MUSCLE which con
trolled and regulated by executive ability provide the energies essen
tial to the profitable employment of capital and labor I
In the great business of transportation human beings can only
be conveyed from one place to another by the cooperation of other I
human beings Human energy or labor therefore is as essential
S as steam or electricity This labor divided between the executive
on one hand which assumes the responsibility for invested capital
for faithful service and tho regulation of subordinates and the great
army of employees on the other wfro discharge their important
i duties in their respective functions These two divisions represent I
ing capital and executive management on one hand and labor on the i
other ARE BOUND BY A COMMON Tillthe success of tho iI
corporation for success implies the qapacity to earn wages and
pay for the use of invested capital from which I mean to say the
relations between employer and employee are RECIPROCAL
Trade agreements or by whatever name contracts between em
ployee and employer may be designated should be entered on in good i
faith and maintained by each WITH SCRUPULOUS INTEG
RITY The employer by reason of this contract embarks the capital
of the investor and the employee his capital namely labor Each
I is essential to the other NEITHER INDEPENDENT
I From profitable cooperation flow the conditions which convert
the desert into garden and confer blessings of life liberty and hap
piness Such contracts are binding alike on employers and em
i ployed and they should be so regarded They may bo likened to a
V
promissory note which involves the credit of the maker and indorser
EMPLOYEES MARKING CONTRACTS FOR LABOR SHOULD ESTAB
LISH THEIR CREDIT BY LIVING UP TO THEIR CONTRACTS AND
IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING EMPLOYERS MUST BE EQUALLY PUNC
V
j TILIOUS
I V
I It is a pleasure to believe that organized V labor is learning more
j and more the lesson that its share of responsibility for a contract is
equfclto that of capital The dignity of labor equals the dignity oi
I
capital where labor adheres as strictly as capital must adhere to the
f obligations of a trade agreement I would emphasize to the leaders
S of organized labor the prime importance S the absolute necessity OF
I riTJELIT TQ CONTRACTS
When they have madea collective bargain it should be impressed
upon all workers whom they represent that the INDIVIDUAL
HONOR of every man is pledged to abide by the terms and spirit
of that contract 5
WHEN EMPLOYERS FEEt ASSURED THAT THE MAKING OF A
CONTRACT WITH ORGANIZED LABOR IS AS RELIABLE AS ANY OF iI
THE TRANSACTIONS IN THE BVSINESS WORLD V TO WHICH THEY
ARE ACCUGTOMED AS I AM GLAD TO LEARN IS BECOMING i
MORE AND MORE THE CASE THEN THE TRADE AGREEMENT
WILL CARRY ITS OWN RECOMMENDATION AS AN EFFECTIVE SO
LUTION OF THE LABOR PROPLEMV

MERICANf women one meets abroad are not like the best
RMERICAlf women ONE MEETS IN AMERICA Travel
ing American women have made a reputation for extrava
gance and all manner of foolish escapades They are
spoiled by the affection AND LAyiSHNESS of their men The
women here are delightful however frank and sweet and with a
Vivacity and quietness one rarely finds in art Englishwoman They
are good mothers housekeepers well bred and seem to me to
represent a HIGHER TYPE OF WOMEN than those one meets
abroad V
S
American men are altogether charming Their only fault is that
THEY SPOIL THEIR WIVES Even those abroad are better
bred than their women They lead more moral t lives than English
men and their courtesy and defer nc to women are beautiful
What chiefly impresses me here is the general air of independence
I IN EVERYBODY The servants hepeople in the street even

have such a gloomy depressed air Your motormen answer you
